Darfur Campaign is Part of Bush-Zionist Agenda
On April 27, 2006 Br. Hodari Abdul Ali, well-known
peace activist for reconciliation in Sudan, as host
of a segment on Radio Pacifica, in Washington, DC,
talked to Dr. Kaukab Siddique about Darfur and the
march being organized on April 30 by special lobbies.
The radio program at 7.35 AM reaches motorists in the
DC area during rush hour.
Dr. Siddique made the following points:
1. Sudan could become another Iraq if first the
UN and then the U.S. intervene there on the excuse
of helping the people of Darfur.
2. Wild allegations of "genocide" and "rape" have
been spread by the corporate media without ANY
[Br. Hodari added that the African Union and the
Arab League do not subscribe to these allegations.]
3. Those who spread these stories about Darfur do
not know the language and usually go to meet alleged
victims through rebel groups which have a vested
interest in spreading these allegations.
4. The area of conflict is huge and no investigation
of any significance has been carried out which would
justify the atrocity stories.
5. The most essential point is: Who armed the rebels
and pitted them against the government of Sudan?
Evidently, any conflict will damage the fragile economy
of Darfur. Transfer of modern weaponry to the area
should be investigated.
6. A serious move is underway to mislead the
American people and to prepare the grounds for
the destruction of Sudan,a great African nation.
Reaching out to the Muslim Community:
Support Imam Jamil, Boycott Israel-funding businesses
On April 28, cards were distributed to the Juma'
[Friday prayer] congregation at a newly established
Masjid in Downtown Baltimore. A large card about
Imam Jami al-Amin was given to 50 people. In addition
a card about Boycott of businesses which support
Israel was given to 43 people. Thus a total of 93
people of a variety of nationalities was reached,
about 25% of them African-American.
The card about Imam Jamil briefly describes the
charges on which he was convicted, analyzes the
weakness of the charges and indicates how readers
can help the committees supporting Imam Jamil.
Are you aware that the products you buy can help
in the Israeli repression of the Palestinian people?
Reach out to Muslim communities and help them understand.
You will be surprised to know how ISNA-ICNA-CAIR
[who all three recognize Israel] have kept their audiences
ignorant of the facts of life.
Race: the Issue in Duke University Rape Allegation Case
The information that is being published (via news
reports) is puzzling, at best.
It has been reported that no DNA, and no evidence of
sexual assault has been found on the victim, in spite
of the fact that she has accused three men of
sexually assaulting her.
I really wonder if the same results would have been
found had the victim been white, and the
accused been black??
I really do hate using the "race card". In fact, I
often talk to my children about not falling back on
that "card". But, the whole thing seems quite strange.
One cannot help wondering.....
I saw a televised "interview" with a witness for the
plaintiff. She - in not so many words - implied that
the victim had been drugged.
The information that is being made available is "sketchy".

Should we Welcome U.S. Sponsored Iraqis
Destruction of Islamic ArtŚAnother Aspect of the Iraq War
By Nadrat Siddique
Recently, a friend of mine, who works at the Walters Art Gallery in
Baltimore, and is both an art afficionado and a friend of the Iraqi
people (she is very anti-war) sent me the following:
"AAM/IPAM Iraq Program: Terry Weisser gave an update about the Walters'
plans to participate in the AAM International Partnership Among Museums
(IPAM) Iraq program. Two museum professionals from the Iraq National
Museum system in Baghdad will arrive at the Walters at the end of April
for an intensive 4-week training and mentoring program in our conservation
lab. A translator will be provided. Other participating museums include:
The Field Museum in Chicago, the California Science Center and Japanese
American National Museum in Los Angeles, the Chicago Historical Society,
and the National Gallery of Art in Washington."
This is what I wrote to her:
On a personal level, the Iraqi government representatives coming over for
training with the Walters are probably good people. The mothers of Iraqi
torture victims and Iraqi dead planned to come to the U.S. for the Women's
Day solidarity action, but the U.S. government denied visas to many of
them, so that their stories might not be told. So, it is important to
realize that the folks coming over for training at the Walters would not
be given U.S. visas if they were not okay with the U.S. occupying force.
Imam Abu Hanifa's mosque (one of the oldest in Islam) was
attacked by U.S. artillery. The personal Qur'an of the Caliph Ali
(RA) was destroyed allegedly in an area of Iraq occupied by
British-U.S. forces. Keep in mind that Ali (RA) was a
contemporary of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW), making his Qur'an
nearly 1400 years old. More than a dozen mosques--some of them
very old--were leveled, during the destruction of Fallujah.
Since Iraq was a center for Islamic learning, numerous centuries
old Qur'ans (roughly 500 - 1100 years old), similar to those in
the Freer and Sackler Galleries, were destroyed by occupying
troops. The occupation and destruction has not ceased, and
although these actions may not be directly attributable to
the Iraqi government representatives who will be visiting
the Walters, you might understand why such a visit at this
time might be construed as hypocrisy. There is great angst
not just amongst Iraqis, but also in the Muslim community at
large about the destruction of ancient Islamic sites as a
result of this war.
So, it is the height of cynicism that U.S.
authorities--which allowed the Bagdad Museum
to be looted, and who are clearly implicated
in the destruction of Islamic antiquities--are
now feigning interest (through their proxy government)
in "conservation" of artifacts.
Islam Through Quotations
by Dr. Kamal Eldin Hassan
Dr. Hassan was born in 1921 in Cairo, Egypt to
Hassan Youssef, a Civil Engineer reponsible for
building many of the country's barrages and dams,
and his wife Amina Amin.
Following in his father's footsteps, he studied
Mechanical Engineering, receiving hs PhD in 1955
from the Illinois Institute of Technology.
He returned to Egypt, and joined the Faculty of
Engineering at Cairo University where he became
the Chair Professor of Thermal Power Stations.
During his career, he enjoyed interacting with his
students, mentoring and guiding them through their
Masters and Doctorate programs. He also authored
many scientific papers and books. In recognition
of his contributions, he received the Egyptian State
Award for Science in 1975.
In 2003, he presented much of his technical library
(over 1400 books) to the newly established
Library of Alexandria, Egypt.
He frequently returned to the United States as a
Visiting Professor at Tulane University, and The
Georgia Institute of Technology. He also spent a
year at New Mexico State University as a Senior
Foreign Scientist with the National Science Foundation.
Believing that Islam's message is of peace and co-existence,
he helped found the Islamic Society of Atlanta in 1973, and
was elected its first president. He wanted to bridge the
gap between Muslims and non-Muslims, especially in the
Dr. Hassan understood Islam as a way of life that focuses
on the freedom of choice, not as dogmas and rituals.
This is the message he wanted to convey to his American
born and raised grandchildren. So for over 20 years,
he taught them that in his deeds, and he dedicated this
book to them and to people like them.
This book is available visit spencer-majeed.com,

Monday, May 1, 2006, insh'Allah.

New Trend Special in Two Parts Below:
Lodi, Sacramento, California
"Muslim" Informer was Key to Conviction of
Pakistani Hamid Hayat in Absurd Case.
Muslim Communities are Riddled with Government
Agents who Claim to be Muslims
How could a jury be convinced that a working class
Pakistani, Hamid Hayat, living in California was
preparing to attack "hospitals, banks and grocery
stores?" The government had a "confession" by him on
tape. He is said to have attended an Al-Qaida camp in Pakistan!
Hamid is facing 39 years in prison.
The weakness of the case becomes apparent when we
notice that Hamid's father, Umer Hayat, could not
be convicted because the jury trying him was deadlocked.
Earlier two Islamic scholars said to have influenced
Hamed were deported to Pakistan on immigration charges
and could not be convicted.
The absurdity comes out when we ask: Is there an
Al-Qaida camp in Pakistan? If there were one, and
an ordinary person like Hamid could know about it,
by now General Musharraf would have bombed it, or
Musharraf would have been removed by order of President Bush.
The AP report on the conviction indicates that the
"confession" of Hamid was obtained under duress after
"hours of questioning in the middle of the night."
In such a situation, which can amount to psychological
torture, the victim usually says what the
interrogators want to hear.
BEHIND this horrible injustice lurks the figure of
a "Muslim" informer. His name is Naseem Khan,
32 year old who was "recruited" by the FBI. According
to news reports, his activities led to an investigation
of the ENTIRE 2500-member Pakistani community in the Lodi
area and the deportation of the two Islamic scholars and
the son of one of them.
The INFORMANT was so clever that the Hayats considered
him "a member of the family." When Hamid visited
Pakistan in 2003, Naseem Khan kept talking to him on
the phone and recorded the calls. He urged Hamid to
attend a Jihad camp. Hamid's weakness was that he liked
to talk and boast about his Islamic sentiments. He was
easy prey for Naseem Khan.
Jamaat al-Muslimeen urges the government to release
Hamid and his father Umer. No one can believe that
they are al-Qaida operatives. These absurdities are
nothing more than injustice and part of the Zionist
agenda to prove that Muslims in America are
connected to terrorists.
THE INFORMANT, the INFILTRATOR: Muslim Communities
are Being Hurt by Siraj Wahhaj Types.
As if Naseem Khan was not enough to entrap Hamid Hayat
and terrorize the entire Lodi community, now we have
Osama Eldawoody, an Egyptian in Brooklyn. A Pakistani
named Shahawar Matin Siraj, 23 , was entrapped by
Eldawoody when the informant infiltrated a
mosque in Brooklyn.
Matin Siraj was arrested on August 27, 2004, kept
in prison for ONE YEAR and 8 MONTHs and finally
brought to trial on April 25, 2006. Guess what's the
evidence against him? He "drew diagrams of the subway
station" which the government says he wanted to attack.
At the same time New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly
admits that Matin Siraj had "never obtained explosives
and had not been linked to known terrorist groups."
So why is he in prison? That's where the informant
comes in. He found out that the Pakistani immigrant
was "angered by the war in Iraq and the Abu Ghraib
prison scandal." The informant was able to get the
innocent young man to express his anger so that it
could be construed as a prelude to terrorism.
This PLAGUE of INFORMANTS and religious-looking
infiltrators getting Muslims into prison was signalled
years back by the activities of SIRAJ WAHHAJ,
a prominent leader of the pro-government Muslim group
of bootlickers known as ISNA [branching out into CAIR].
Also very popular with ICNA, Siraj Wahhaj successfully
infiltrated the Muslim community and helped to put
one of the greatest Islamic leaders of our time,
Shaikh Omar 'Abdel Rahman, in prison. Siraj Wahhaj
was invited as a defense witness in the case of Dr. Omar
[the blind Shaikh] but helped the government by claiming
that the great Shaikh legitimized bank robberies!
Later in an interview with the Zionist WALL STREET JOURNAL
Siraj Wahhaj continued his backbiting and slander against
the Shaikh. What kind of a Muslim is Siraj Wahhaj? In his
own words, he is proud of his friendship with Medeleine
Albright, mass murderer of HALF-a-MILLION Iraqi children
through sanctions and embargo. This is what Siraj told the WSJ:
"I had dinner with Secretary of State Albright after the
list of unundicted conpirators was circulated."
[Wall Street Journal, October 24, 2003.]
In the same interview, he continued to slander
Shaikh Omar. His words: "Shaikh suggested that Muslims
should rob banks to benefit Islam."
The blind Shaikh, servant of Allah, Hafiz of Qur'an,
expert in Sahih Bukhari, teacher of Fiqh, Ph.D from
Al-Azhar, is in prison, in a little cell in Missouri,
cut off from friends, family, all sympathetic human
contact, buried alive. In the meantime, Siraj Wahhaj
struts around ISNA masjids claiming to be an Islamic
leader and urging Muslims to be aware of the Hereafter!
After Siraj Wahhaj, the case of Abdur Rahman
al-Amoudi, another stalwart of ISNA-ICNA
Conventions, came to light. He had his own
organization, AMC, which justified and legitimized
that Shaikh Omar 'Abdel Rahman should be tried by
a Jewish judge linked to Israel! When
Al-Amoudi went to prison owing to an internal
struggle, seemingly, among intelligence agencies,
he WROTE to the WASHINGTON POST that he was a loyal
servant of the government and had been using funds,
freely, to shut the mouths of Muslim critics
of the government.
Dear Muslims of America
It is time to clean house. Islam in America should
be based on the Qur'an and the Sunnah of Muhammad,
pbuh. Here are a few suggestions.
Only authentic Muslims with transparent sources of
income should be the leaders of Muslims. We do have
real leaders like Imam Jamil, Imam Warith Deen Umar,
Imam Musa and others. Give them your support.
We must ask the ISNA-ICNA-CAIR operatives:
1. Do you accept the Qur'an and the Sunnah of Muhammad, pbuh?
2. If so, reveal your source of income? Where does your
money come from and how much is it?
3. When are you going to condemn the U.S. bombing
of Afghanistan and Iraq?
4. When are you going to condemn the U.S. bombing
of Pakistani villages?
5. When are you going to condemn the atrocities of
General Musharraf, Hosni Mubarak, Abdullah of Jordan
and Abdullah of "Saudi" Arabia? Are you in favor of
these dictators? If not, go ahead and condemn their regimes.
6. When are you going to come out in PUBLIC SUPPORT of
Imam Jamil, Imam Warith Deen Umar and Imam Musa? Why
are you silent about them?
7. Do you recognize ISRAEL? If not, then come out and say it.
8. If you can't do any of these, on what basis can you
use the term "Islamic" for your organizations? Would it
not be more honest to use the term "Collectors of
Charitable funds and Organizers of Social Get-togethers
Hilton-style" [CCFOSGH] for your cliques?
