Baltimore, MD 21234

1. The government has stopped the weekly visits of AHMED 'ABDEL SATTAR's family to the imprisoned Egyptian-American political prisoner. For five weeks there have been no visits. The government seems to be preparing to inflict a heavy penalty on Ahmed 'Abdel Sattar.

2. The ADL, a heavily funded Jewish organization, is attacking a speech Minister Farrakhan gave on February 25 in Chicago. On March 2, O'Reilly [on FOX TV] also attacked Minister Farrakhan's speech which was reportedly about Jewish influences in America..
[New Trend is studying the speech.]

3. An informative large-sized postcard depicting Imam Jamil al-Amin on one side of the card and Prof. Sami al-Arian on the other is being distributed by Jamaat al-Muslimeen. On February 24, the card was given to 67 people at a masjid on the east side of Baltimore, Maryland where most of the worshippers are Arabs. The card gives brief but comprehensive information about the two political prisoners.

4. David Irving, Austria's political prisoner, in an interview from the prison near Vienna, told a British media person, that there is no documentation of the claim that Hitler ordered the extermination of the Jews. British papers are saying that owing to this new statement, Irving's imprisonment may be extended further. We protest this shameful act of repression against a great scholar and researcher. The Europeans have been publishing caricatures of the best of men, Muhammad, pbuh, in the name of freedom of expression, yet they will not allow Jewish stories about the 'holocaust' to be examined critically.

Brief but Important News:
March 2, 2006. President Bush has come to an agreement with India to develop India's nuclear power. India will not have to sign the non-nuclear proliferation agreement.

March 1: On President Bush's arrival, India's Muslims organized a protest demonstration in New Delhi which was of historic dimensions. According to conservative estimates carried by western observers, at least 100,000 Muslims participated in the rally against Bush.

March 1: Pakistani military forces claim that they killed 30 to 45 Islamic fighters, including a Chechen leader, in a strike in North Waziristan, 7 km from the Afghan frontier. Pakistani helicopter gunships and elite troops carried out the attack.The report is diffcult to verify. People on the ground say that civilians were hit. According to one report, a missile from a helicopter hit a civilian bus killing a Pakistani woman and injuring 15 passengers.

March 2: In Karachi, a martyrdom operator in a car hit a vehicle carrying 3 U.S. diplomats at the American Consulate's gate. One of the diplomats, his Pakistani driver and a Pakistani paramilitary officer were killed. The fate of the other two diplomats is not clear. At least 50 other people were injured. The blast from the attack blew out the windows of the Marriott hotel next door and set afire 20 cars parked behind the hotel, resulting in a secondary explosion.

The Muslim anger at the cartoons of the sublime Messenger of Allah, pbuh, published in European papers, has reached the interior areas of Pakistan. For the first time in history, several thousand women demonstrated in the town of Lasbela [Baluchistan], calling for the death of the Danish cartoonist. The speakers, from Baluchistan's Jamaate Islami, including a woman, at the rally called for a boycott of all Jewish goods and that Pakistan's ambassador to Denmark be withdrawn.

March 3: The ENTIRE country is in the grip of a general strike on the appeal of Islamic groups led by the Islamic coalition, the MMA, to protest the caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, in European countries. The leader of the Islamic movement, Qazi Hussain Ahmed, is still under arrest.

According to the morgue in Baghdad, 1300 bodies were brought in DURING the curfew. It appears that the curfew was used as a cover to slaughter Sunnis all over Baghdad. Sources say that the killings were probably carried out on the orders of Shi'a religious leaders, because the Shia are muqallidin [followers] and act only when ordered by their religious authorities. After the curfew was lifted, Sunnis launched a series of counterattacks killing 29 Shias.

March 2: An Islamic group known as Hizbul Mujahideen ambushed a unit of the Indian army called the Rashtriya Rifles, in the remote Taral area, killing 4 Indian troops and wounding 5. Earlier on March 1, the same group killed 5 Indian troops and wounded 4.

New Trend's Germany Watch
Why Did Germany betray Saddam Hussain?
Israel's Holocaust Propaganda Helps to Enslave Germany and Austria: Germany Gave Saddam's Defense System to the U.S.

Few Muslims understand that Germany's rulers [along with Austria], are second only to the United States in providing finance, weaponry and propaganda support to Israel . Now it turns out that Germany was also involved in the destruction of Saddam Hussain's defense structure. It provided crucial intelligence to the U.S. forces which attacked Baghdad. The question arises: WHY?

Germany [along with Austria] is a slave nation. Seemingly an advanced, modern democracy, Germany is at the beck and call of International Jewry and Israel. The "holocaust" story, the myths of Auschwitz, Babi Yar and other horrors have been used to make the German people feel that they are a worthless, criminal people who should spend all their energies to appease the Jewish entity.

Whatever his faults, President Saddam was the only ruler in the Middle East who dared stand up to Israel. Hence he had to be removed. The American Left cannot face this fact and tries to claim that America's desire for oil was the cause of the war, an absurd argument because America already has the entire oil of the Middle East at its disposal. Ever heard of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, UAE, Bahrain. Guess who controls their oil?

Now the documentation is available, revealed by the Zionists themselves who have used up Bush and are in the process of dumping him. Here are excerpts from the British paper, the Guardian, March 1:

"A classified US military study states categorically that the Germans provided details about Saddam Hussein's plans for the defence of Baghdad. Since the spy issue first arose last month, the Berlin government has been repeatedly forced on the defensive. It issued a denial yesterday.

"The study, which reconstructs Saddam's military strategy, was prepared in 2005 by the US Joint Forces Command. It says that two German agents based in Baghdad gained access a month before the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 to a sketch, covered in clear plastic, showing the proposed defensive lines for Baghdad, and that a German intelligence officer based in Qatar handed it to US intelligence. The sketch is identified as a plan presented at a meeting of Saddam and his senior commanders in December 2002.

"The US military study is explicit about Germany's role. It says: "The US obtained the sketch on Feb 03. The overlay [plastic sheet] was provided in February to the German Intel LNO [liaison officer] in Qatar, who provided it to DIA's [the Defence Intelligence Agency's] rep in Centcom Forward... DIA forwarded it to Centcom J2 [the intelligence division] in Feb."

"The revelation undermines a German official report last week intended to end the controversy. That report said German agents had provided some intelligence, but suggested that it was very limited and dealt mainly with humanitarian and religious sites at risk from US air raids."

Analysis of America's Parasite
ISRAEL'S SACRED TERRORISM * Attempts to force Hamas to Submit

by Edward Miller, San Rafael, California [Veteran New Trend Contributor]

* Title of a book by Livia Rosach, who in 1980 translated excerpts from the Sharett diary. Moshe Sharett's was Israel's first foreign minister, and its second prime minister (1954-1955).

Washington supports democracy and democratic movements, unless, of course, the "wrong party" or "wrong leader" happens to win. Bush applauded the election campaign for parliament in Lebanon, until he discovered that Hezbullah (Party of God) had captured seats in the "Resistance-Development Bloc." Washington then blew a fuse, questioned the election results while demanding Hezbullah "disarm".

Washington also applauded last year's elections in Iran (described by international observer teams as "open and fair") until on November 27th, 2005 when Iran's new and hard-line president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, denounced Western pressure to curb its nuclear program, saying: "You, who have used nuclear weapons against innocent people, who have used uranium ordnance in Iraq, should be tried as war criminals in courts." Adding to the media bru ha ha was Ahmadinejad's questioning of the 6 million Holocaust death figure, and his vocal support for an end to the Israel State whose leaders had, for months, been threatening to bomb his Country.

The latest Washington "democracy upset" was the overwhelming victory of Hamas on January 26th, 2006, which Palestinian election results again threw Washington into a tizzy. The outcome was especially troubling to Bush and company, because of the secret US involvement in that political process, revealed in a January, 2006 Bush Press Conference as follows:

QUESTION: " Mr. President, the U.S. government has spent about $2 million to help promote the Palestinian Authority in the lead-up to this week's elections. I wonder, sir, whether you feel like it's consistent with your push to spread democracy around the world if the U.S. puts its thumb on the scale? …. THE PRESIDENT: " I talked to Secretary Rice about the story that you're referring to, and what she told me was, is that this money was part of a USAID package that had been in the pipeline for a while. The -- kind of allegation or the insinuation that we were funding a political effort just simply isn't the case, as far as I can tell. QUESTION: " Why, then, not disclose the USAID involvement?" THE PRESIDENT: It is disclosed -- you just disclosed it." (Laughter).
( 26 Jan, 2006 )

In not one of these three cases, Lebanon, Iran or Palestine, has either the security, or vital economic interests of the United States really been threatened. Washington's noisy and public "stamps of disapproval" have rather been that of a puppet, speaking for its puppet- master, Zionist Israel, our client state, which has been forced to acknowledge before the world that its army had been kicked out of Lebanon by Hezbullah, that its atomic hegemony in the region is being threatened by Iran, and that its savage and illegal occupation of the Palestinian's homeland will certainly be made more precarious by a people now politically united under Hamas leadership.

Hamas is basically a social service organization, born of the Intafada, whose military wing had been both supported and armed by Israel to counter Arafat's PLO, which organization, under the control of the United States, the European Union, Russia and UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, was being dragged through an endless game in which Arafat and his Palestinians were required to repeatedly jump through hoops to prove their worthiness, while no pressure was ever applied to Israel to end its confiscation of land and expansion of settlements.

( see Ali Abunimah, The Electronic Intifada, 26 January 2006)

Israel's response to the Hamas win has been that of arrogant colonial occupier. As reported in the Israeli press by Gideon Levy: (Haaretz 19 Feb.):

" The Hamas team had not laughed so much in a long time.,

Headed by the prime minister's advisor Dov Weissglas and including the Israel Defense Forces chief of staff, the director of the Shin Bet and senior generals and officials, convened for a discussion with Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni on ways to respond to the Hamas election victory. Everyone agreed on the need to impose an economic siege on the Palestinian Authority. Weissglas provided the punch line: "It's like an appointment with a dietician. The Palestinians will get a lot thinner, but won't die," the advisor joked, and the participants reportedly rolled with laughter."

The Israeli government's new plans for economic terrorism against its captive population are gradually unfolding" In the last United Nations report, published in December 2005, 37 percent of the Palestinians had difficulties obtaining food and 54 percent of the residents of the "liberated" Gaza Strip cut back the amount of food they consume. Child mortality had risen by 15 percent and the average unemployment rate reached 28 percent. To travel in the West Bank, Palestinians now have to traverse no fewer than 397 checkpoints. The Israeli public fears news of the spread of Palestinian hunger only because of a possible world' reaction, not because of the bestiality it represents.."

The Assoc Press, Feb. 17 listed additional measures Israel will consider against the Palestinian Authority after Hamas takes control of the legislature: Preventing commercial cargo from entering or leaving the Gaza Strip via Israel, the outlet for nearly all Gaza's current trade - and freezing the transfer of the roughly $55 million in taxes and customs royalties Israel collects on behalf of the Palestinian Authority each month. Israel will… pay to itself about $75 million in debts the Palestinians owe to Israel's electricity and water companies and Israeli hospitals.

Meanwhile on the ground, the economic terrorism of the Occupation becomes more evident: On February 16th, 2006 the Israeli Defense Ministry recommended barring the passage of Palestinians between the West Bank and Gaza Strip and prohibiting Gazan laborers from entering Israel . The Army Radio reported that the ministry would recommend turning crossings between Israel and Gaza into international borders, thus further encumbering Gazans' movements, and on February 13th Amira Hass, Haaretz Correspondent reported that: " While the international community had busied itself with the disengagement from the Gaza Strip, Israel had completed (Sharon's wall) sealing off the eastern sector of the West Bank, including the Jordan Rift Valley, from the remainder of the West Bank. Some 2,000,000 Palestinians, residents of the West Bank, are now prohibited from entering the area, which constitutes around one-third of the West Bank, and includes the Jordan Rift, the area of the Dead Sea shoreline and the eastern slopes of the West Bank mountains."

Meanwhile, violent terrorism against the indigenous Palestinian population continues daily. On Feb 17th a Palestinian schoolboy was shot in his school bus, and a 33yr woman shot dead while herding sheep. " On Feb 19th "Israeli troops shot dead two Palestinians during confrontations with stone throwers in the West Bank refugee camp of Balata today, witnesses and medics said. Soldiers searching for suspected militants came across stone-throwing youths and opened fire. Two 18-year-olds were killed. A third youth was wounded in the incident, medics said." ( West Bank correspondents in Nablus,)

Terrorism against the occupied people has anothrt economic side: Six incidents were registered , in which a total of 1,000 Palestinian olive trees were cut down. The residents of the village of Salaam discovered 200 of their trees chopped down. The village has lost 900 trees since May 2005. ( New Trend 28 December, 2005 ). The harvesting of olives remains one of the few remaining economic supports of the Palestinians.

Israel has escaped paying for much of its criminal behavior by the veto power which its client state, the US, wields in the UN Security Council. For the past half century, informed Americans, again and again, have experienced mixed shame and anger, as Washington, under pressure from our Zionist lobbies, has used its veto power to prevent international response to Israel's repeated human rights abuses. An in-depth article from Australia News (dated March 8th, 2003) covered 30 years of US-UN vetoes, and listed some of the 60 such vetoes aimed at protecting Israel, as UN Council members again and again condemned her abuses of a captive Palestinian population. A select few from the list of vetoed Resolutions are self-explanatory:

1972, condemns Israel for killing hundreds of people in Syria and Lebanon in air raids; 1973, calls on Israel to withdraw from the occupied territories; 1979, calls for return of all inhabitants expelled by Israel; 1979, demands Israel desist from human rights violations; 1981, 18 resolutions condemning Israel's bombing of Iraq, and human rights abuses of the Palestinians; 1982, calls on Israel to withdraw from the Golan Heights; 1982, condemns Israel's invasion of Lebanon; 1995 affirms that land in East Jerusalem annexed by Israel is occupied territory. Every one of these acts represents Israeli terrorism.

In many ways Israel today has morphed into the fascist state of which Albert Einstein and other prominent American Jews warned Americans in that famous 1948 NewYork Times full-page add:

Backed by a political-industrial base, Israel still occupies parts of Lebanon, Syria, and the West Bank. With no designated geographical border, no constitution, and no bill of rights, she hosts a supreme court that waltzes in step with her military. Her political behavior at home is apartheid, treating as a second-class her Palestinian citizens, Ethiopean Jews and much of her Sephardic Jewish population. Because she has avoided most of the social and economic requirements demanded of an occupying power by the Geneva Convention (which Israel signed) the UN, Hamas and many NGO's have taken on this burden.

All, however, is not gloom. There are many Israelis, as well as American Jews, with a social conscience who are fighting the system. Recently, the chair of the Democratic Choice faction in Israel's Yahad Party, criticized what he termed "an apartheid regime in the occupied territories," adding: "The policy of apartheid has also infiltrated sovereign Israel, and discriminates daily against Israeli Arabs and other minorities. The struggle against such a fascist viewpoint is the job of every humanist." and former Israeli education minister, Shulamit Aloni, stated ( 1 Feb 2006 ) that Israel commits war crimes, "utilizes terror" and is "no different from racist South Africa." I can show you Mussolini's books about fascism. If you read them you'll reach the unequivocal conclusion that ministers in the current Israeli government are walking on the same path." Many Israelis are sensitive to foreign critics such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu who commented: "I've been very deeply distressed in my visit to the Holy Land; it reminded me so much of what happened to us black people in South Africa. Have our Jewish sisters and brothers forgotten their humiliation? Have they forgotten the collective punishment, the home demolitions, in their own history so soon.? "

There is also hope for a kinder, more decent Israel amongst the younger generation of Jews, many of whom are today studying in the US. The ISRAELI PROJECT, a Zionist propaganda initiative, devoted to educating press and public about Israel, recently carried out "face-to-face group interviews with almost 150 randomly selected Jewish students under age thirty attending the top graduate schools in America - The surprising conclusion, repeated dozens of times over, was: "Students.. are turning against Israel…Never.. has there been more outspoken opposition .. to the basic principles and tenets of Israel. If the current attitudes are not reversed, America's core commitment to - and alliance with - Israel may not survive" " To be pro-Israel is unpopular and socially unacceptable on campus". Virtually every student interviewed said he or she had drifted away from Israel and toward the Palestinian point of view.


Perhaps the world IS changing, and we can finally get this parasite off our payroll. Both countries would benefit from a less dependent relationship.
