The Egyptian Government Paper Al-Akhbar Once Again Defends Hitler
Special Dispatch - Egypt
June 20, 2001
Following criticism of President Husni Mubarak during his
visit to the US in early April 2001, the Egyptian
government daily Al-Akhbar temporarily ceased publishing
articles defending Hitler. Recently however, the paper
again published an article by Mahmoud Muhammad Khadhr, a
cleric from Al-Azhar University, entitled "In Defense of
Hitler"(1). Following are experts of the article:
"No one was sorry when Hitler vanished from the world; he
took his own life, as did many of his ministers and
[military] officers. They did it so that they wouldn't have
to see the faces of the old ape, Churchill, and the big
bear, Stalin, who would sentence them to death with no one
to defend them or ease their punishment."
"Each one of them has the right to a defense, whatever
their infractions may have been, and even if they admit to
their [crimes]. But Hitler's executioners took this right
away from him and attributed to him crimes that he
committed and that he did not commit. I do not know what
would have happened to Churchill, de Gaulle and Roosevelt,
had Hitler won. Perhaps the crimes for which they deserve
the death sentence would have been much worse than all that
Hitler has done."
"But all of Hitler's crimes and infractions were forgotten
by the world, except for one crime that was exaggerated and
blown completely out of proportion, thanks to the
insistence of world Zionism to continue to stoke the fire.
The reason for this was the emotional need of the Sons of
Jacob to extort Germany and to eat away at its resources.
It is hard to believe that the Europeans and Americans, who
are entitled to thinking, confirming or denying anything -
including the [existence of] the prophets and God himself -
cannot address the 'Jewish Question', or more precisely,
the false Holocaust, whose numbers and scope they have
exaggerated until it has reached the level of the merciless
destruction of six million Jews, only because Hitler saw
them as an inferior race unworthy of living next to the
Germanic race, which must rule the world."
"Anyone who knocks on this door encounters the most
horrible accusations and is tried in all of the European
countries and in the US for anti-Semitism, for two reasons:"
"The first is Zionism's control over thinking in the West.
This control testifies to the degree of oppression of
thought by the Zionist propaganda apparatus in those
nations. No one can oppose this oppression, for fear of
being tried and sent to prison, or having his livelihood
and his reputation threatened..."
"The second reason is, without a doubt, the great fear that
the lies of Zionism will be exposed if the subject [of the
Holocaust] is investigated by facts and if logical
conclusions are made."
"The first dubious fact is the number of six million Jews
who were burnt in the gas chambers. Did they have families,
children, who demanded compensation, or did Zionism see
itself as their only heir? If we assume that every person
had an average of five family members, this would bring the
number of Jews affected to thirty million. It is certain
that many Jews escaped before the ship sunk, that many of
them therefore, survived, despite the so-called
extermination and burning [in the gas chambers]. This would
mean that the number of Jews in Germany was sixty million,
although the total number of Germans has never reached this
"Even if we cross off one zero from the six million and are
left with a tenth of this number, it would still seem
exaggerated and would have to be investigated."
"No one can ask why Hitler punished the Jews. The reason
had nothing to do with that broken record known as
anti-Semitism. If Hitler was an anti-Semite, why was this
anti-Semitism mentioned only after the World War was
declared? Hitler could have expelled - in the period in
which he built Germany up and prepared it for the War in
order to recover what it lost in WWI - this undesirable
[Jewish] race from Germany and planted it in South Africa
or anywhere else in the world. Did Hitler attack the Jews
or did their crime deserve even more?..."
"The Zionists were a fifth column in Germany, and they
betrayed the country that hosted them, in order to realize
their aspirations. This had to be exposed, [and indeed],
Hitler discovered that the Zionists were spies for the
Allied Powers. Inevitably, he was enraged and took revenge
on them for this great betrayal."
"Both the Zionist movement and the Allied Powers had an
interest in keeping this matter a secret, so that people
would not know that the Zionists were punished for helping
the Allied Powers, for betraying [Germany], and for
stabbing Hitler in the back."
"Even Germany and the government set up by the Allied
Powers could not tell the truth, although they knew it,
because it was under the influence of the Allied Powers,
and because defeated nations must pay. Thus, the Zionist
movement took control over the subject from Europe and the
US and has easily made laws with which they try anyone who
wants to raise the subject. Even historians can research
any subject except for this forbidden one. Furthermore, the
influence of the Zionist oppression has reached some Arab
countries, who prevented the meeting of two conferences of
historians who want to investigate the subject and expose
the truth. The conference was delayed more than once, but
some of Egypt's main journalists promised to host this
conference and we hope that it will succeed in exposing the
secrets surrounding this subject..."
"We denounce racial discrimination and the persecution of
any person on the basis of religion, race or color,
anywhere in the world. Those who yell about false
persecutions that allegedly occurred half a century ago,
must not ignore the persecution of others, their expulsion
from their houses and their land, and the confiscation of
their property. They should not commit those crimes that
they claim were committed against them."
"Likewise, Germany should pay compensations to the victims
of mines that were planted in the Western desert [in
Egypt], and compensations for the land that lay untouched
for half a century, before it pays compensations for false
crimes that have no proof except for false and misleading
