The Good Holocaust Denial
11 May, 2009
Notice that the term German Holocaust is used, not Holocaust, because there is a much earlier Holocaust that occurred under Mohammed in Arabia. But as we will see, the German Holocaust and its basis in a totalitarian ideology can be criticized, while the political ideology of Islam is beyond the pale of critical thought. We may savage the Nazi and his ideology, but the Muslim and his ideology of political Islam has to be respected with the silence of deliberate ignorance-denial and justification.
Since the German Holocaust is the standard of suffering for modern Judaism, it is interesting to use it as a measurement of the Arabian Holocaust.
There are two different Korans-an early one written in Mecca and a later one written in Medina. In Mecca, Mohammed claimed to get his Koran from Gabriel, a Jewish angel and portrayed himself in the line of Jewish prophets. Indeed, that was his proof of being a prophet; he was just like the Jews.
When Mohammed arrived in Medina, which was half Jewish, the Jews informed him that he was not a prophet of theirs. The Koran changed its attitude, and Jews became the object of hatred. Indeed, as a measurement of that hatred, 10.6% of the Koran written in Medina is about Jew hatred. Using the concept of the German Holocaust as the reference, it should be noted that 6.8% of Mein Kampf is about Jew hatred. Conclusion: the Koran written in Medina is more filled with Jew hatred than Mein Kampf. Here is one of the more egregious verses:
Koran 2:65 We [Allah] said to them [the Jews], "You will be transformed into despised apes." So We used them as a warning to their people and to the following generations, as well as a lesson for the Allah-fearing.
Koran is only 16% of the sacred texts of Islam. The
Sunna of Mohammed is found in the Hadith (his traditions) and
Sira (his biography). In the Sira, 5.3% of the Medinan text
relates to the destruction of the Jews-assassinations, executions,
rapes, torture and exile. Then there are many other pages that are
verbal violence against the Jews. If you add the verbal violence to
the physical violence, the Medinan Sira is 8.6% Jew hatred. Mein
Kampf is 6.8% Jew hatred. Conclusion: the Sira (Mohammed's
biography) contains a greater proportion of Jew hatred than Mein
When we come to the Hadith, we do not have such high percentages of text related to Jew hatred; but here are two examples:
Muslim Book 042, Number 7135 Mohammed: "A tribe of Jews disappeared. I do not know what became of them, but I think they mutated and became rats. Have you noticed that a rat won't drink camel's milk, but it will drink goat's milk?"
Muslim Book 041, Number 6985: Mohammed: The last hour will not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews. The Muslims would kill them, until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree. The stone or a tree would say: Muslim, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him. The tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.
What was the result of all of this hatred? Mohammed killed,
enslaved, tortured, exiled, robbed and raped all of the Jews of
Medina and then went a hundred miles away and attacked and destroyed
the Jews of Khaybar. After he had taken their wealth, tortured the
Jewish leader to death, and laid out the jihadic rules of rape for
women, he made the Jews of Khaybar a new type of half-human-the
dhimmi. The Jews of Khaybar became semi-slaves of Islam. They could
keep their Jewish culture in the home and synagogue, but they had to
pay a 50% tax and live under Islamic rule without civil rights.
Finally, when Mohammed lay on his deathbed, he exiled all Jews and
Christians from Arabia. There are Jews still in Germany today, but
Arabia is Judenrein and has been for 1400 years.
And what do Jews, Jewish leaders and Jewish organizations say about the Arabian Holocaust? They deny it absolutely and categorically. They even deny that the subject of the Arabian Holocaust even exists.
Examine the case of the survival of Israel. Since so many liberal
Jews deny the existence of the Arabian Holocaust and the Islamic Jew
doctrine, they are incapable of answering the question: Who is the
enemy of Israel? Jews cannot connect the dots from Mumbai to Israel
and how Kashmir and Israel are the same struggle.
The Jews and Israel are losing the propaganda war. Modern wars are won in the propaganda arena, not with guns and bombs. It is the media that determines who is the victor, not the dead body counts. This started in Vietnam and has been true ever since.
Islam knows how to fight a propaganda war. The Holocaust has become the propaganda tool of victory in the hands of Islam. Islam mocks the Holocaust and turns it on Israel, saying that Israel is the Nazi state.
The Muslims of Gaza know that their war is an extension of the Arabian Holocaust and refer to it in their propaganda. Mohammed's destruction of the Jews is their ideal and goal. They see Israel as Khaybar. They know that one day the Jews of Israel will be their dhimmi servants again and so they chant: Khaybar, Khaybar. Oh, you Jews! The army of Mohammed is here for you.
Since Jews refuse to recognize their enemy, Islam, they can never defeat them. When given the choice of acknowledging the Arabian Holocaust (and the Jew hatred doctrine) and saving Israel, far too many Jews choose denial. Jewish/Israeli propaganda is weak and only operates in the defensive mode. They do not have an offensive propaganda campaign, because they do not have a doctrine to base it on, nor are they clear on who the real enemy is.
The Islamic propaganda war will destroy Israel's allies in Europe and the US. When American support of Israel goes, there goes Israel.
There is a second problem created by the Jewish denial of the Arabian Holocaust. Jews are some of America's best intellectuals and most are major apologists (dhimmis) for Islam. The ACLU is CAIR's (Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Hamas front) best friend. Rabbis love to bring in the Somali warlord immigrant or the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood member to the synagogue to tell the Jews about the real Islam. So too many Jewish intellectuals bring harm both to Israel and America because of their deliberate ignorance about both the doctrine and history of political Islam.
Jews cry the slogan "Never again" for Christian Europe, but they have adopted "Never happened" for Arabs and Islam.
Well, we have criticized the Jewish response to Islam. Now let's
turn our attention to the Christians. Same song, second verse, could
be better, but only gets worse. When it comes to being a dhimmi
apologist for Islam, the average Christian does not need lessons
from the Jews. They, too, deny the Arabian Holocaust.
However, Christians don't specialize in Arabian Holocaust denial; Christians have their plates full with the denial of the destruction of ancient Christianity in Iraq, Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria and North Africa. And just like the Jews, they not only deny the truth of Christian annihilation, but they also deny that such a history even exists. The book of Revelation mentions the Seven Churches of Asia (Asia Minor, Anatolia, modern Turkey). I have never met a Christian who could explain what happened to the Seven Churches, or even acknowledged the existence of the annihilation.
Christians deny the brutal daily persecution of their brethren throughout Africa and the Middle East today, just as they deny the Islamic doctrine of annihilation of Christians in Mohammed's time and in 1400 years of past history.
Again, we have a parallel between the Christian and the Jew. The majority of Christians cannot name the enemy of Christianity and Jews cannot identify the enemy of Judaism and Israel.
The average Christian minister seems to be as incapable as a rabbi of being brave enough to read Islamic doctrine or history. Since all of the textual doctrine of Islam-Koran, Sira (Mohammed's biography) and Hadith (his traditions)-has been made easy to read, it is not the intellectual challenge but fear that prevents them from seeking knowledge. So in place of knowledge through solid scholarship, Christians have some "good" Muslim explain about Islam and tell them about how they are all brothers who worship the same god. Hardly.
If it is so bad to deny the German Holocaust, why is it so good to deny the Arabian Holocaust and the Islamic Annihilation of Christianity? Why can we condemn the Nazis, but not the Muslim jihadists? Germans killing Jews is evil. But Mohammed killing Jews and Christians is-who knows, who cares, why bother?
