QUOTE of the Month: On Muslim participation in American
elections: "You cannot change a corrupt system by becoming
a part of it."
[Imam Jamil Abdullah al-Amin.]
Have you read this?: The Jewish group ADL is raising a stink
about a small but powerful book which was highly publicized
at Minister Farrakhan's program in Chicago on February 25.
Jews worldwide have become experts in censorship. The book
titled The Synagogue of Satan by
Ashahed M. Muhammad is available from:

Islamic Women's Impressive Summit in
Atlanta, Georgia: March 3 and 4.
A Muslim Women's Leadership Summit was addressed by speakers
from various universities and groups supporting women's
causes. The program was linked to the work of Baitul Salaam
which helps battered women and women in transition, as well
as women's sanctuaries for South Asian women. Sis. Hadayai
Majeed, a veteran organizer of resources and support for
oppressed women, presided over the two day panels and the open session.
The program began with an 90 minute presentation by
Imam Khalil Abdullah who described the examples of the
female companions of the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, as role
models for today's women as detailed in Hadith narrations.
After that Dr. Kaukab Siddique spoke on the Qur'an's
standards for superiority and inferiority which make
sexism irrelevant. Sis. Betty Hassan then coordinated a
program in which a young and dynamic African-American
sister, Latifah Muhammad, recited powerful Islamic poetry
and her brother Ameer Muhammad used rap to explain the
conditions of the people. It was standing room only.
On March 4, there was extensive analysis of the conditions
of women with Islamic solutions by Dr. Adriene Sabir Hudson,
an African American intellectual and psychologist. An
eye-opening presentation was made by Sis. Sonali Sadaaque
[from Bangladesh] on the conditions of South Asian women in America.
In the afternoon, Dr. Najma Adam [a Pakistani professor]
from Northeastern University in Chicago discussed the
underpinnings of the oppression of Muslim women.
Dr. Kaukab Siddique spoke again, in the concluding session,
this time on the issues of Rape and Resistance.
The final interactive group [for women only] was led by
Sis. Saffiyah Abdul-Khaliq.
A book titled Poetic Parenting by D. Hamima Shabazz
was given as a gift to the participants.
Observers say that this was the most successful gathering
of Muslim women in recent years.
Islamic Women Live by a Distinct Code of Conduct,
Jamaat Masjid leader says.
In February 2006, Goucher University in Baltimore, Maryland,
invited people of various faiths to speak about their
understanding of the conditions of women. Islam was
represented by Sis. Ashira, the Administrator of
Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen.
Sis. Ashira said that Islam is not a new religion. It began
with Adam and Hawwa and all the messengers of Allah, be it
Noah, or Abraham, or Moses or Jesus, or Muhammad [peace be
on them all] are messegers of the same ONE GOD [Allah].
The Ka'aba in Makka is the oldest place of worship of
Allah. One Hadith narration says that it was first
built by Adam himself.
Muslim women do not date or have pre-marital sex, she said.
Young people can meet each other but should be chaperoned.
Early marriage is strongly recommended in Islam, she said,
and the community is supposed to help young people get married.
Islam has given women rights which are sanctioned by Allah
Almighty Himself, Sis. Ashira said. No other religion specifies
the rights of women, she added. In Islam, the rights and
obligations are stated clearly in the Qur'an and the Hadith,
she concluded, and as soon as women become aware of this fact,
the sooner they can achieve stability, dignity and respect in
their lives. Unfortunately many women do not study Islam and
this allows men to exploit them, she noted.
Jamaat leader Protests Caricatures of Prophet, pbuh:
Gains Support of non-Muslims
[Imam Badi Ali has successfully carried out a boycott of
a North Carolina tabloid. He gained widespread suipport
from Non-Muslims. Here is the report from the
Local paper prints touchy Islam cartoons
By Sandra Isley
The Chronicle March- 2 -2006
A Triad Muslim leader is calling for a boycott of a
Greensboro-based newspaper after the paper published
cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed.
Badi Ali, president of Muslims for a better North Carolina,
called for the boycott after The Rhinoceros Times published
cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed. According to the Islamic
faith, depictions of any prophets of God are unacceptable.
"In Islam, it's prohibited to actually create images of any
prophet, not just Mohammed, but Jesus, Moses, Joseph, all
the prophets. It's forbidden," said Ali.
A Danish newspaper's publication of cartoons depicting
Mohammed have led to protests by Muslims throughout
the world. The protests, often violent, have resulted
in many deaths and damage to buildings and other properties.
The Rhinoceros Times, known for its conservative views
and quirkiness, published the cartoons knowing that
their publication had caused violence around the world.
William Hammer, publisher of The Rhinoceros Times, said
he printed the cartoons because he has a First Amendment
right to do so. Hammer also said that Mohammed has been
depicted in other forms of the arts.
"What most of the Muslims I've spoken to say they object
to is the depiction of Mohammed, although he is depicted
in art, literature and even in the encyclopedia we have
in our office," said Hammer.
The Rhino, whose journalistic motto is, "All the rumors
fit to print," published two of the controversial cartoons
two weeks ago. But the cartoons are not just plain
depictions of the prophet. One, for example, shows Mohammed
wearing a head piece shaped like a bomb.
Ali said that without question, the cartoons were created to offend.
"I am certain that our neighbors here, for example, wouldn't
want to see someone claiming that Martin Luther King Jr.
was for terrorism. They don't want to see someone claiming
that the Virgin Mary was a terrorist," said Ali. "I'm sure
people wouldn't like it. The Muslims wouldn't even like it."
Initially Hammer said that he would run more cartoons from the
series. He changed his mind, though. The paper's Web site
states that the paper did not see a need to run more cartoons.
It is the one thing that Ali is happy about, but he still
feels that Hammer hasn't fully apologized for his actions
yet. Ali wants a written apology in the Rhino.
He said, "I am pleased that he did not run any more of the
cartoons. What we want now is respect for our faith, respect
for our community and respect for our prophet."
Hammer says the Muslim community is overreacting. He doesn't
think that the cartoons portrayed local Muslims in a
"It's not an actual comment on the local Muslim community," he said.
The Rhino is a free tabloid that relies on restaurants and
other businesses to make the publication available to its
customers. Since the publication of the cartoon, some sites
have pulled the newspaper from their racks. Ali said some
Rhino advertisers are also pulling out.
Originally, protests aimed at the Rhino had been planned.
But Greensboro Mayor Keith Holliday urged Ali to resolve
the situation through other means. Instead, silent vigils
and small gatherings to discuss the issue have been planned.
Hammer did offer a verbal apology when asked to address the
Muslim community. He said: "I'm sorry that I offended the
Muslim community. I really don't think that the cartoons
comment on the American Muslim community, at all."
American Muslims and their Supporters Face Severe
Oppression from Bush-Zionist-Neo-Cons.
[With notes on the dastardly inactivity of CAIR in genuine causes.]
We look briefly at the following cases:
1. Imam Warith Deen Umar, Albany, New York. [African-American Muslim.]
2. Ahmed 'Abdel Sattar,
Staten Island, New York. [Egyptian-American Muslim.]
3. Ms. Lynne Stewart, Brooklyn, New York. [White American, famous attorney.]
4. Dr. Ali Al-Tamimi, Falls Church, Virginia. [Iraqi-American.]
5. Dr. Kifah al-Jayyousi, Detroit, Michigan. [Palestinian-American.]
6. Masoud Khan, Rockville, Maryland. [Pakistani-American.]
The American power structure has been lashing out at the
innocent Muslims of America. Unable to find any of the "bad
guys," revenge has been taken from those who have never done
anything against the United States. The entire family of
Islamic America is under attack. Anyone can be arrested or
abused or terrorized by the U.S. if one is a devout Muslim.
This terrible oppression comes in the name of "LAW" and is
organized, orchestrated and directed by the U.S. government
at the behest of the Zionist lobby, Israel, the Christian
Neo-Cons and the oppressive rulers overseas who are
subjugating the Muslim masses worldwide.
The threat to Muslims is NOT from the American people.
Funded Muslim groups, like CAIR, pick out a few
cases of misbehavior, rowdiness, some arson, from a
population of 260 million and claim that Muslims are
the targets of "islamophobia" emanating from the American
masses. Nothing could be further from the truth. CAIR's
publicity machine serves the disinformation campaign of
the U.S. government which rushes in to support CAIR in
these minor cases of harrassment.
When it comes to the major cases of oppression of Muslims
in America by the government, CAIR is either silent or sides
with the government. [As the sage has said, NEUTRALITY in
the FACE of AGGRESSION is in effect SUPPORT for OPPRESSION.]
1. IMAM WARITH DEEN UMAR, one of the very few truly
Islamic Imams left in this country, was attacked in his
apartment in the Bronx, arrested, his rooms ransacked, his
Qur'an desecrated by government agents. Then the police and
the FBI invaded his home with dogs in Albany, NY and
terrorized his family. This outstanding Imam refused both
to be intimadated and to be provoked. So now, in the most
frivolous way possible, the oppressors have brougt a charge
from 1967 to try to criminalize him. The following report is
Beach Head News
Re: United States v. Warith Deen Umar
This is to announce that the United States Grand Jury
returned an indictment against the above named defendant
on Monday, March 6, 2006. The defendant's case is assigned
to the Honorable Robert P. Patterson and the arraignment
is scheduled for Wednesday, March 8, at 4:oo Pm in courtroom
24A, 500 Pearl Street New York City.
The indictment charges ONE COUNT for possession of a dangerous
weapon after having been convicted in a court of a crime
punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year,
to wit a May 13, 1967 conviction for possession of a
dangerous weapon in New York County Supreme Court. Defendant,
in this case did unlawfully, willfully and knowingly possess
firearms and ammunition, to wit, a Winchester 12 gauge shotgun,
a Ruger .22 rifle, and four shotgun shells which the defendant
possessed in the Bronx, New York, and which had previously
been shipped and transported in interstate commerce. (Title 18,
United States Code, Section 922 (g) (1).
Imam Umar considers this a harrassment case of judicial
injustice, illegal search and seizure, and pleads NOT GUILTY
against this ONE CHARGE..
That, dear readers, is America under Zionist control
2. AHMED 'ABDEL SATTAR, a devout Muslim who never broke the
law, has been convicted of association with terrorists and o
ther ridiculous charges. His REAL "crime" is that he is
opposed to the Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak. Ahmed wanted
to talk to people who want to overthrow Hosni. He did not
Hosni, up to his neck in torture, rape, murder and mass
imprisonment without trial, is a bosom buddy of the White
House and of Israel. In February 2006, Ahmed was placed
under SAMS, a security order which more or less buries the
prisoner alive. He is now forced to remain 24 hours in a
cell [his one hour out of the cell is taken away]. His radio
has been taken away. His mail has been stopped.
NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO VISIT HIM. Even his wfe and children
have not been allowed to visit him now for 5 weeks. He is
facing a sentence of LIFE in PRISON. This is indeed America
under Zionist control.
3. Ms. LYNNE STEWART, probably the greatest woman in America,
a top level attorney, who fought for decades in defense of
African-American and other victims of oppression, has been
convicted as a TERRORIST associate! Can you believe it? What's
her "crime?" She defended the blind Shaikh, Dr. Omar 'Abdel
Rahman pro bono [free of charge], and continued to visit him
after he was put under SAMS. She told the press what the Shaikh
said to her. Result: She was tried as an associate of terrorists.
She is about to be sentenced to 30 years! That is America under
Now this grandmother, aged 65, finds that she has breast cancer.
Please pray for her recovery. At least she should be healthy to
face Bush's justice, 30 years in prison for defending an Islamic
scholar! [Compare with Muslims like Siraj Wahhaj who helped to
put the great scholar in prison and struts around as an Islamic man.]
4. Dr. ALI TIMIMI's case is so ridiculous that
only a government which hates Islam with great intensity
could have carried out this charade. He is an outstanding
Islamic scholar. He has NEVER BEEN VIOLENT. He has never
hurt anyone or did anything against America. He preached
in a little mosque about many aspects of Islam, including
Jihad, in a scholarly way. Unfortunately for him, several
Muslims whom the U.S. government framed under the Neutrality
Act [to please its new friend INDIA] were used
against him. Three of them plea bargained [made a deal
with the government] and gave blatant self-serving testimony
against Dr. Al-Timimi. This totally non-violent person, for
giving Islamic sermons, has been sentenced to LIFE in prison.
Can you believe it! That is America under Zionist control.
5. DR. KIFAH al-JAYYOUSI has NEVER harmed America, EVER,
in even the slightest way. What's his crime? He used to
publish a magazine urging Muslim to help the Muslims of
Chechnia and Bosnia [at a time when the U.S. also supported
them]. Also, he opposed the imprisonment of the blind Shaikh.
The government wants him to speak against other Muslims. He
is now "terrorist connected" for what was not "terrorist
connected" at the time he wrote. He refused to 'snitch' on
other Muslims and ended up in prison himself. Much later, he
was brought to the court. Even the judge was shocked at the
absurdity of the charges and ordered him released on bail.
However, the BAIL is so high that after 9 weeks, his support
[in the form of property] is still short by $50,000. Can you
imagine a good citizen, who served in the U.S. navy, forced
into prison? That is America under Zionist control.
6. MASOUD KHAN comes from a middle class family,
very religious but non-violent and polite, has never harmed
anyone and NEVER done anything against America. He had
property in Pakistan and went there to settle a property
dispute. The government "broke" three young Muslims [see
Al-Tmimi's case above] who, to avoid the threat of long
sentences, agreed to speak against Masoud Khan. On that
basis, the government claimed that Masoud visited a Lashkare
Taiba camp in Pakistan and fired a gun. That is terrorism in
the eyes of the government, and, now read this: HE WAS
SENTENCED TO LIFE IN PRISON! Can you believe it? That is
America under Zionist-Jewish control.
Dear readers: If you would like to help the family of
any of these innocents, Jamaat al-Muslimeen will provide
you the addresses. Remember, that Muslims are NONE OTHER
THAN ONE BROTHERHOOD/SISTERHOOD. If one of us is under
attack, we are all under attack. Write to:
if you want to help.
CAIR, in its dastardly slick way, has ignored and/or insulted
all these dear and devout Muslims. When Dr. Kifah al-Jayyousi's
wife asked CAIR for help, CAIR's reply was, according to his
wife: we do not take criminal cases. The deeply offended,
hijabi, sister replied: My husband is not a criminal.
Dear Muslims, do you not hear that CAIR has been collecting
hundreds of thousands of dollars from Muslims, while the
Muslims under attack by CAIR's friends do not have funds even
to pay for bail?
Is it not time to stop funding a spiritually dead group like
CAIR? Think about it. Don't waste your funds on this
"meet you in the Hilton" group of bootlickers and lick
spittles of the slave master.
New Trend Exclusive
PAKISTAN ARMY Slaughters Civilians, hits Mosques,
Islamic Schools, Homes
On March 8, 2006 [8 AM Pakistan time.] New Trend
interviewed Syed Munawar Hasan, Secretary General of
Jamaate Islami and key organizer of the Islamic coalition MMA.
New Trend: What happened in North Waziristan on March 3, 4 and 5.
Syed Munawar Hasan [SMH hereafter]: Musharraf's troops
slaughtered hundreds of unarmed Muslims, including many
women and children. His army is using the area as a free
fire zone to terrorize the people. His troops destroyed
mosques, Islamic schools, hundreds of homes by artillery fire.
New Trend: How can the Pakistani army attack mosques? Do you
think Musharraf has recruited Shias or other alienated sects
to attack the Muslims.
SMH: It's not a Shia-Sunni issue. These mercenary soldiers
can be Sunni and kill people. They will do anything when
ordered. Faith is not important for them.
New Trend: Wasn't it a mistake to direct people towards
Denmark's cartoons? Did you get so diverted that Musharraf
was able to bring Bush to Islamabad? Isn't that a victory
for the anti-Islam forces?
SMH: I don't agree. The cartoons are not an issue of Denmark.
They are an attack on our faith and life. Bush did come but
the whole country was protesting. If he is not blind, he
will know that he was only Musharraf's guest. Pakistanis
do not want him. We are carrying out mass protests against him.
New Trend: But still, how come he was able to come to
this country of Muslims?
SMH: You know that 60 to 80% of British people opposed
the invasion of Iraq but Blair was still able to carry
it out. Peaceful movements like ours express the conscience
of the people and create moral isolation of those working
against Islam. We do not use physical force.
New Trend: The people of North Waziristan are great fighters.
Do you think Musharraf will be able to crush them?
SMH: I doubt it. Musharraf has been trying for several
years and has killed many and lost a good number of his
too. The resistance is spreading, not going down.
New Trend: Do you know that Imam Jamil is still in prison
in America? Numerous good Muslims have been imprisoned
after ridiculous trials. Any Muslim in America can be
arrested for any reason at any time. Lynne Stewart, the
attorney of Shaikh Omar, a grandmother, has been "convicted"
of terrorism- related offenses!
SMH: I would like to know more. Send me a list of the
innocent victims of American "justice."
AFTER the interview, New Trend double checked the
available information on Musharraf's blitzkrieg in
Northern Waziristan. The Musharraf regime claims
that it has killed 140 "terrorists" including 5 "foreigners"
between March 3 and 6. However even pro-government papers
like DAWN indicate that Syed Munawar Hasan's account is
accurate. For instance, DAWN notes that "security forces"
"targeted" a mosque and an Islamic academy known as
Darul Uloom Faredia. It also notes reports from residents
that four villages were attacked and names the villages.
Musharraf's representative admits that his troops "blew
up a hotel" in the "main bazar" of MiranShah city killing
19 people who are claimed as "militants."
New Trend's analysis shows that the masses of Pakistanis in
the area supported the Pakistani version of the Taliban. The
armed Islamic resistance seems to have withdrawn into the
mountains in good order. The people are also voting with
their feet. Thousands of people have become refugees from
their homes after Musharraf's army let loose a reign of terror.
Musharraf has imposed an INDEFINITE CURFEW in the area.
