War News: From our Media Monitor with Brief Analysis
Palestine: Islamic Forces Guaged Israel's Racist Response:
It looks like the Forward Bloc of the Islamic resistance
sensed that the Hamas led government was about to cave in
and accept a two- state solution [implicit recognition of
the terrorist entity known as Israel.] In a heroic operation,
an Islamic commando unit dug into Jewish controlled territory,
blew up two Israeli tanks and several trucks, killed two
heavily armed Jewish soldiers and captured one.
The Israeli response was predictable: Naked aggression and
blatant use of military power against defenseless Palestine.
Israel has been exposed again. It can occupy all of Gaza to
free one Jewish terrorist while it holds thousands of
Palestinians, including women and children,
in dehumanizing concentration camps.
Israel upped the ante by air buzzing Bashar Assad's home
in Syria to pressure Assad to expel Khalid Mish'al,
Palestinian leader who is being accused of having ordered
the commando raid. Israel tried to murder him once before but failed.
Latest: Israel kidnaped 2 Ministers of the duly
elected Hamas government. Palestinians have captured two
more armed Jews from among the Jewish terror groups
known as "settlers."
[See Islamic response from America below. Bush and his
lackeys are silent. Bush calls Israeli aggression "self-defence"]
IRAQ: RELATIVELY HEAVY New U.S.
CASUALTIES CONCEALED by AMERICAN MEDIA
Figures released by the Pentagon indicate that 22 more
U.S. troops were killed in Iraq during the last 5 days
[ending June 27]. The total U.S. fatalities are now 2527
with more than 18,500 wounded. Very few details on the
fighting have been released indicating that the U.S. is
getting the worst of it in the hot Iraqi summer. Iraqi
casualties are said to be heavy but difficult to quantify.
Four Russian diplomats were reportedly executed by Iraqi
mujahideen in retaliation for Russian genocide, mass murder,
rape and random torture in Chechnia.
AFGHANISTAN: Condi Rice Rushes to Karzai/Musharraf
as Taliban Victory Nears
BBC World Service admitted [June 27] that large areas of
Afghanistan are under Taliban control. [Pointed out by New
Trend much earlier.] A case of poetic justice, on June 28,
Ahmed Rashid, said to be one of the dirtiest dogs in the
kennel of anti-Islam Pakistani secularists, had to admit,
in an interview with NPR that the Taliban are winning and
becoming a threat to the Karzai regime.
There are indications that hundreds of Afghan civilians and
dozens of Taliban have been killed in the U.S. air offensive,
in particular the 730 air strikes we noted earlier. However,
in a classic guerrilla maneuver, the Taliban side-stepped
the 10,000 man U.S.-NATO-Karazai juggernaut. The heavily
armed forces are looking quite foolish wandering around in
the Afghan countryside unable to find the Islamic cadres.
NATO announced at the start of the offensive: "Taliban will
be dealth with." [CNN June 15.] Canada's Chief of Defense
Staff, General Rick Hilliar, in a bit of disinformation,
claimed that 70 countries are supporting NATO and "only"
the Taliban are opposing it. [C-Span June 27.] He does not
realize that the Taliban are rooted in the Pashtun people,
the great majority of Afghans.
In the latest fighting, 2 British soldiers and 4 Karzai
Shi'ites were killed in a Taliban ambush. [June 26, Fox TV.]
In another attacj the Taliban killed 2 U.S. troops in
Kandahar province. [June 24, CNN] Another "coalition"
[canadian] soldier was killed by the Taliban on June 28.
What business these Anglo-American forces have in the land
of Islam? Observers say it is the latest crusade and the
mujahideen who defeated the USSR might defeat NATO as
Ms. Rice praised both Musharraf and Karzai but both are seen
as foreign agents by their people.
Islamic leader Abu Bakr Bashir was released on June 14.
Australia protested vigorously to Indonesia's government but
to no avail. Islamic sentiment runs high in this country.
Bashir, the father figure of Islamic radicals, is accused of
okaying the attack on Bali which killed 80 Australians and
others in Bali's night clubs allegedly in response to
Australian military intervention in Afghanistan.
Pakistan: [from Urdu media.]
Musharraf feels Isolated though funded and praised by Condi Rice:
Attacks kill troops
On June 26, 2006 a martyrdom operator hit a Pakistani military
convoy at village A'sha, 6 km from Miranshah, North Waziristan.
Seven Pakistani troops were killed and 10 wounded in the
explosion. General Sultan, Musharraf's media man, had no choice
but to admit the loss as the local Taliban had already
reached the media.
The same day, 5 members of a mafia gang terrorizing the people,
were slaughtered in a gunfight by local Taliban in the
area of Shawal.
On June 27: A Pakistani military convoy was hit near Mir Ali,
on the way to MiranShah. Heavy military casualties are
reported [daily Nawa-e-waqt] but Musharraf's officers are
refusing to reveal numbers. A ferocious Pakistani
counterattack was launched but it appears that the Islamic
fighters got away.

Starbucks and McDonalds at Guantanamo Bay
June 22, 2006: In the course of an interview about the
world's most notorious detention center, NPR [National
Public Radio] revealed, just by the way, that Starbucks
and McDonald's have been set up there to serve the forces
running the place. Thus these businesses, linked to the
funding and support of Israel, are living off the horrendous
human tragedy ongoing at Guantanamo Bay where hundreds of
Islamic people are being tortured. [Years back, Sis. Karen
English, Jamaat's National Shoora member, wrote a poem urging
W.D. Muhammad to speak out against that concentration camp.
The deafening silence from W.D. has continued.] O Muslims!
Wake up and stop buying from those who fund your enemies.
U.S. Muslims Condemn Israeli Terrorist Invasion of Gaza:
1500 women, 300 Children in Jew prisons
On behalf of politically aware Muslims of America, Jamaat
al-Muslimeen condemns the latest Israeli aggression in Gaza.
Tank columns of heavily armed Jewish terrorists supported
by helicopters and jet fighters provided by the United
States attacked the defenseless Palestinian area of Gaza
on June 28 early in the morning. Armored columns of Jewish
terror groups reached the Rafah refugee camp while Jewish
terrorists in helicopters and jet fighters destroyed
communication lines and cut off electricity to the entire population.
The brutal face of Jewish terrorism stands revealed once more.
The Israelis are holding 1500 Palestinian women and 300 children
in their prisons. Drunk with the arrogance of overwhelming fire
power against unarmed opponents, they went to terrorize an
entire population to recover one Israeli soldier captured in
a brilliant Palestinian commando raid in which two Israeli
tanks were destroyed and two soldiers killed.
In spite its firepower and support from King Abdullah of Jordan,
from Bush and from Mahmoud Abbas, Israeli faces the indomitable
will of the Palestinian people steeled by the growing influence
of Islamic resistance.
40,000+ Hispanic People Embraced Islam:
Jamaat leader Gave out 500 Qur'ans in Spanish
During the last decade more than 40,000 people of Hispanic
origin [Latinos/Latinas] embraced Islam in the U.S. This
information was released by Br. Sulaiman Solano, a leader
of Jamaat al-Muslimeen during the Shoora meeting in Greensboro,
North Carolina [June 24]. Br. Solano has himself played a
leading role in the effort to provide Islamic information
to people looking for the truth of Islam. Among his voluntary
efforts, he has distributed 500 copies of the Qur'an in
Spanish translation absolutely free of charge.

"Muslim leaders who abandon and betray Muslim Believers":
A letter from Imam 'Umar
New Trend is one of the greatest and most accurate analytical
forums of our time here in America and around the world. May
Allah continue to bless you and increase your influence. Muslims
who are being used to spread the idea that any Muslim who goes
against the enemies of Islam must be the modern day
Khawaarij (those who dissented and fought against Caliph Ali,
radiallahu anh). These misled Muslims are part of a clique
that may or may not know that they are being tricked. I coin them
"The Tricked Clique". The Muslim leaders among them do know and
care more about being favored and accepted by the Western
government powers (America-Europe-Saudi Arabia, etc.)
than favored by Allah.
These potentially dangerous Muslim leaders must continue to be
highlighted and exposed so the Muslims here and abroad and
those non-Muslims who love truth may be warned and guided
right. I know about them from a rare perspective: I have been
and currently am a victim of these types of Muslim leaders
who abandon and betray Muslim Believers who are attacked by
the media, politicians and FBI. Sympathize with all Muslims
who fight against the enemies of Allah and are blessed to be
martyred, fi sabilli llahi.
Your brother in Islam,
[ Imam] Warith Deen Umar
As Salaamu Alaikum

Interview with Ramsey Clark
No Grounds to Accuse President Saddam Hussain of Gassing Kurds
On June 27, 2006 Dr. Kaukab Siddique inteviewed the leader
of the anti-war movement, Ramsey Clark, former attorney
general of the U.S., who is defending President Saddam
Hussain. Here are a few excerpts:
K.S. In your interview with CNN, you said that Saddam Hussain
cannot be accused of gassing the Kurds because he did not
have the wherewithal. What did you mean?
Ramsey Clark: Our intelligence agencies, DIA, CIA and the
Marine Corp's intelligence service stated that Saddam did
not have any of the three nerve gases he is accused of
having used in Anfal against the Kurds and at Halabcha.
The DIA report is still classified but the CIA report was
publicized by Stephen Pelletier in an Op Ed piece in the Times.
K.S. Have you heard of a man named Christopher Hitchens who
is often trotted out in the corporate media to make claims
about large scale killings of Kurds in these alleged gassing
operations by Saddam. What do you make of it?
Ramsey Clark: Hitchens is off the right track. Anyone can
make any claim but when it comes to pressing charges,
evidence is needed.
K.S. You referred to the murder of Saddam Hussain's defense
attorney. Isn't it dangerous for you over there?
Ramsey Clark: The Iraqis are in much greater danger. For a
trial, a secure environment is a must. This is the third
defense attorney to be murdered. Our attorneys cannot go
out and obtain witnesses or investigate evidence. The
essentials of a fair trial are being denied.
K.S. What about the Dujail executions of Shi'ites?
Ramsey Clark: These were carried out after a two year long
trial. These men belonged to the Da'wa Party, working from
Iran, trying to overthrow the government of Iraq by force of
arms, trying to to kill the President of Iraq. Such armed
attempts on behalf of a foreign country were punishable by
death and the process of law was carried out to ascertain
guilt. It was armed treason during war time. In the present
context, the U.S. destroyed the entire city of Fallujah.
On what basis can they try Saddam?
K.S. You might like to see a review I wrote of a book by
David Irving on the Nuremburg trials. It has some good
arguments to answer the charges against Saddam Hussain.
You might be hesitant because Irving is a right winger but
he has devastating analysis of Nuremburg. The allies, he
says, were trying the Nazis for crimes which they too had
committed. The Russiand killed all those Polish officers at
Katyn and they were sitting in judgement on Germany.
Ramsey Clark: Yes, it's called tu quoque, and, I know, the
destruction of German cities ...
K.S. Yes, Dresden and other cities...
Ramsey Clark: Send me the review. It's always good to hear from you.
