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...

"As the reality of Jews was revealed to him, the black face of the Jewish lobby started emerging before him. The lava of hatred, disgust and rebellion sprouted in his heart. Jews have played tricks of so-called oppression... With their deceit and deception, they made a wicked attempt to wear the cloak of an oppressed nation; they started chanting the mantra: Jews have been oppressed. But the reality cannot be hidden with artificial principles. Despite all restrictions, the conspiracy of Jews was exposed.

"Jews call Germany the ringleader of their nation's genocide. They claim that in 1928... Germany destroyed 146 [Jewish] settlements. In 1336 [sic.] 200 Jewish settlements were destroyed... After World War II, [Jewish leaders] accused Hitler of murdering 50 Jews [sic]; some people put the number at 60 lakhs [six million]. But there is no proof of Jews killed in such a large number. Jews themselves cannot present any evidence of that. On the back of the Holocaust, Jews want to achieve their nefarious objectives. They want to establish a separate, independent state for their nation. During World War II, America and Britain had promised Jewish leaders [they could establish an independent state]. Russia is also determined to stand by Jews in this matter."

"[Dead bodies Dug Out Of Graves,] Were Cut Into Pieces, Roasted, And Eaten [By The Crusaders]"; "To This Day, The Ferocious Israeli Wolves Are Invading The Unarmed Muslims Of Palestine"

"But in the eleventh century, with the support of Pope Urban, hordes of Christian crusaders attacked Syria and Palestine in the name of liberating Jerusalem. The Crusaders, by capturing the Syrian city of Maarrat al-Nu'man, continued the massacre for three days. In this bloodshed, one hundred thousand Muslims were martyred. During the siege of Antakya, graves of Turks were dug out, their bodies were opened up... [Dead bodies] were cut into pieces, were roasted and were eaten.

"When in June 1099, the Crusaders' army captured Baitul Muqaddis [Jerusalem], streams of blood flew. [Islamic historian] Ibne Ashir writes: '70,000 people who took refuge in the Al-Aqsa Mosque were murdered. Amongst them were big religious scholars, God's servants and hermits. Death kept dancing in Baitul Muqaddis for one week.'

"Contrary to that, when Sultan Salahuddin Ayubi liberated Baitul Muqaddis after 88 years, in 1187, in exchange for a small fidyah [ransom] let all residents leave the city. The fair treatment by Muslims of the captured [non-Muslims] can be gauged from those who were recently released in Afghanistan [by the Taliban]. Many of the released prisoners accepted Islam after being impressed by [Muslims' fair treatment]. Similarly, the 11th century monk Peter's fictional claims of oppression were tantamount to burying historical facts. To snatch the sacred land from Muslims, he concocted absurd stories.

"Jews have been taking full advantages by howling about the Holocaust. The Allied countries have fully supported them in [the establishment of] their localities on Palestine. To this day, the ferocious Israeli wolves are invading the unarmed Muslims of Palestine. The international community is offering full financial and military support to Israel. [Israel] blames Palestine by throwing dust into the eyes of the whole world. On the other hand, Palestinian Muslims have been deprived of medicines, food and other life essentials; children are dying, sobbing; mothers' laps are becoming deserted. Think yourself who is the oppressor and who is the oppressed, who is vicious and who is showing tolerance?"
