Following are excerpts from an article in Zarb-e-Momin (Strike of the Faithful Muslim), an Urdu-language jihadist weekly openly sold across Pakistan. Zarb-e-Momin, which began publishing in the early 1990s, has been linked to the Al-Rashid Trust, a banned charity connected to Al-Qaeda and other jihadist organizations in Pakistan.
The article, titled “Who is tolerant?” written by Waqar Ahmed (who is possibly based in Australia), questions the Holocaust and accuses Jews of promoting it for their advantage. The beginning the article, which is not included below, features a fictional scenario in which a visiting Muslim is told by a local not to talk about the Holocaust.
Following are excerpts from the article, as translated from Urdu:
“On The One Hand, Jews Beat The Drum Of Freedom Of Expression, But On The Other Hand, They Do Not Let Any Occasion Pass To Strangle Truth With Their Iron Hands”
“[…] on this topic [of the Holocaust], research aside, even talking about it is a crime here [presumably in Australia]. Anyone who investigates it is either pushed to obscurity or suffers the fate of imprisonment. An Australian history teacher was given three years’ imprisonment. The convicted professor… had, after investigating, refused to accept the veracity of Holocaust…”
“On the one hand, Jews beat the drum of freedom of expression, but on the other hand, they do not let any occasion pass to strangle truth with their iron hands. How is it possible to stamp a seal on someone’s tongue in the current era and imprison his thoughts? I will definitely work on this subject, will expose to the whole world what is reality and what is fiction…”

Egyptian TV Host Gaber Al-Karmoty: The Jews Are Using The Holocaust To Suck The Blood Of The Germans
In a January 15 address on the Egyptian ON TV channel, TV host Gaber Al-Karmoty complained that the Holocaust was “off limits,” while drawing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad was not. “I’m talking about what people call the Nazi Holocaust, for which they are still sucking the blood of the Germans. Who? The Jews!” said Al-Karmoty.
Gaber Al-Karmoty: “According to the principles of free speech, the Holocaust is off limits. Have you heard about the Holocaust of Germany and the Jews? I’m talking about what people call the Nazi Holocaust, for which they are still sucking the blood of the Germans. Who? The Jews! Israel goes on and on about this every year. They weep and cry about the Holocaust, the blood, and the pain, and they cry: We were tormented, we want reparations, whatever… But when along came a French intellectual like Roger Garaudy, and said: ‘The Holocaust was just a show. It doesn’t make sense’… What did they do to the man Garaudy? They humiliated him.
“Garaudy published the book The Founding Myths of Modern Israel. Consequently, he was tried in France for doubting the Holocaust of the Jews. God Almighty! There is no god but Allah! Doesn’t this fall under freedom of thought? He believed that the Jewish Holocaust was nothing but a show. A film. After all, you allowed people to curse the Prophet Muhammad. Did anyone do anything about these people? No. Did anyone tell them they were doing something wrong? No. They depicted our Prophet Muhammad as a terrorist, God have mercy. Nobody asked them: ‘What do you think you are doing?’ Did they send to the cartoonist to prison? No, they said this is freedom of speech.”
