Jamada al-Thani 11,1427/July 7, 2006 #42
Jamaat al-Muslimeen condemns the latest armored Israeli thrust
into Gaza as blatant aggression. Muslims around the world
should unitedly break the web of Zionist terror organizations
and businesses supporting terrorism.
[Also scroll down
to the end for latest on the suffering of Prof. Sami al-Arian.]
July 6, 2006: Israeli tank columns, supported by Apache
helicopters and F-16 jet fighters entered the populated area
of northern Gaza. Lightly armed Palestinians put up resistance
but suffered heavy losses, at least 23 killed for only one
Israeli soldier killed. The Palestinian will to resist remains
strong but weapons are not available. Iran, for all its
pro-Palestine rhetoric, has provided no worthwhile weaponry.
The Arab armies, those of Egypt and Jordan, are mere collections
of mercenaries used by Hosni and Abdullah to crush the Muslim
masses. If the Palestinians had weapons, they could draw the
Jews into Gaza and then pin them down in guerrilla warfare
with martyrdom operators putting the fear of God into
the cowardly Israelis.
PERSONAL from the Editor: On her birthday, a special word
of tribute goes to my younger daughter Nadrat. She changed
my life by bringing to me the diet plan a Muslim should
follow. Most middle class Indo-Pakistanis, after age 50,
end up having heart attacks, strokes, triple bypass, etc.,
and all kinds of diseases related to life style. I remained
healthy because I followed ONE important aspect of the
Sunnah of Muhammad, peace be on him: WALKING. However my
'middle class in USA' lifestyle was catching up with me
when Nadrat came to the rescue. She actually brought me
the right food and insisted that I follow the elements of
the Prophet's [pbuh] diet. Prayers and fasting are the
framework of Islam, but they don't work if one's day-to-day
diet is unIslamic. Indo-Pakistani Americans end up getting
fatter in Ramadan than they were before it because they
feast at the end of almost every day of fasting, following
a religious attitude bereft of social content and political activism.
I call my daughter "Hakeem Nadrat" now. The basic points of her
diet plan are: Grains [5 kinds], dates [3 kinds], figs [3 kinds],
fruits, leafy vegetables, carrots, water and walking. [Almost
all are mentioned in the Qur'an and the Hadith.] Various kinds
of herbal teas are permitted. NO sugar, NO fat, little or no
salt [replace with chillies], NO bread, no milk products [these
are very dangerous in America owing to the feed given to cows].
No meat [except on Friday or Eid], and no processed meals.
Over five months, my blood pressure went DOWN, DOWN, DOWN and is
no longer a problem. My weight has steadily and slowly gone
down. [Quick losses on most diet plans lead to quick gain-backs.]
I need much less sleep, except when I mess up and deviate from
the diet. I wish I had followed the Prophet's [pbuh] way much
earlier. No wonder he and the sahaba , r.a., never were sick.
At age 60, the Prophet, pbuh, could jump on to a barebacked horse
and ride it without a bridle. How far are we from his way, peace
be on him, because we do not study the Hadith!
Thank you Hakeem Nadrat.
Miami Arrests were Aimed at Stopping the Spread of Islam
but backfired Badly
Of course the arrests were racially motivated. The government
is trying to stop the rapid spread of Islam among the African
American and Hispanic communities (remember Padilla). Of course,
the more attention, even negative, that is brought on Islam only
causes people to investigate the religion with result of an
increasing number of Americans who revert to Islam,
alhamdulilah. Attempting to stop the spread of Islam
by force is like trying to stop the spread of mercury by
stamping on it. It just spreads it further. Islam is a gift
from Allah and no force on earth can prevent Allah (swt) from
bestowing this ultimate gift on those whom He chooses.
Your Sister in Islam
IMPORTANT NEWS: from New Trend's media monitor
1. MUSHARRAF and KARZAI strike it rich: July 3, 2006.
Pakistan's military coup leader General Musharraf has been granted
$5 billion by the U.S. to help him fight the forces of Islam.
The grateful general sent 10,000 more troops to plug the holes in
the rugged Afghan-Pakistan frontier, thus bringing the total of
Pakistani forces fighting the mujahideen to 90,000.
Simultaneously, to Karzai, the U.S. granted $2 billion
to build what it calls the "Afghan National Army." This force
basically consists of Shi'ites, Communists from Dostum's troops,
riff raff from various war lords, tribal chiefs looking for
employment for their men as well as professional soldiers from
the old Communist units who fought for the USSR.
2. KASHMIR: An outburst of new fighting rocked this
occupied Muslim country during the first 4 days of July. On
July 2, the Indian occupation army successfully thwarted an
attempt by Islamic fighters to enter from Pakistan killing 4
Islamic fighters for a loss of one Indian officer killed and
2 wounded. However, on July 4, the Indian military suffered
in north Kashmir [village of Maro Bandipura] when fighters of
Lashkare Taiba killed 18 Indian troops for a loss of two
mujahideen in a day long battle in difficult terrain. [Earlier
activists of Dukhtaran-e-millat, an Islamic women's group,
went into hotels in Srinagar and exposed "tourists" indulging
in "dating" and sexual activities.]
3. USA. Not immoral but amoral? On July 4, 2006 CNN's
Headline Prime program presented a detailed interview with
Stacey Lannert who was raped by her father on a weekly
basis from the time she was 8 years old till she was 12. Her
mother pretended not to know what was going on. Later in life
Stacey came back and shot her father when he was drunk. She
was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. The program went
into graphic details of the rapes.
[Ed. comment: Strangely enough, Americans are so blinded by
their way of life that they do not see these crimes as
oppression of women.]
4. CHECHNIA: On July 4, Islamic fighters ambushed and
wiped out a Russian military unit only 25 miles from the capital
city of Grozny. According to the mujahideen, 20 Russian soldiers
were killed and 50 wounded. Russia admitted the Islamic attack
but claimed that only 7 of its troops were killed and 25 wounded.
The situation in Chechnia reached a new boiling point when on
May 28, Russia organized a beauty contest and a rock concert in
Grozny to humiliate the Islamic masses of Chechnia who have
been subjected to genocide by Putin and previous Russian rulers.
[Mike Tyson was called in to hold a fight in Grozny.]
Funny but true
Zionist Propaganda about Israel: [Eat your heart out Goebbels!]
June 29, 2006: National Public Radio [NPR], biggest lineup of
Jews in the U.S. media, claimed that the Israeli soldier who
was killed by Islamic fighters while sitting in his merkava
tank in occupied Palestine was "an artist and wanted peace."
Compare this with the ongoing Israeli claim that Palestinians
fighting Israeli occupation forces are "terrorists."
WOMEN in Islam by Kaukab Siddique
[This item is based on Ibn Asakir's Tarikh ud-damishq.]
One of the most charismatic women in the first Islamic generation
after the sahaba was Naila, the daughter of Farafsa.
She became famous when in the year 28 of the Hijra she married
Usman ibn Affan, r.a., the third rightly guided Caliph of
Islam. She was from a Christian family in Kufa but was educated
in Islam by the greatest woman of Islam, Ayesha Siddiqa, r.a.,
from whom Naila learned Hadith. She also narrated Hadith from
her illustrious husband, 'Usman, r.a.
[Again this is evidence that Hadith was narrated in the FIRST
century of Islam, not in the THIRD as the munkareene hadith contend.]
In the year 35 hijri, Naila witnessed the tragic murder of her
husband Usman, r.a. This great sahabi [companion] of the
Prophet, pbuh., was the victim of sectarians who later came to
be known as "Shi'as." These murderers were so cold-blooded, they
cut down Usman, r.a., while he was reading the very Qur'an which
he had compiled. [The blood of Usman, r.a., trickled down to this
verse of the Qur'an he was holding: "...Allah will suffice thee
as against them, and He is All-Hearing, All-Knowing." [2:137]
Naila grappled with the assailants but they were determined to
kill the elderly Caliph. One of the assailants tore off Naila's
outer garment. At this an African slave whom Usman, r.a., had
freed could not bear to see the emerging tragedy and rushed
forward and killed the assailant who had grabbed Naila, only
to pay with his own life. Then another assassin's sword came
down on Usman, r.a. Naila stopped it with her left hand and
her fingers were cut off. The Caliph was martyred thus putting
an end to the ideal era of Islamic excellence.
Weeks later, after her hand had healed, Naila, along with a
large number of other virtuous women went to the mosque and
addressed the people to shame them about their lack of
resistance to the sectarians. She spoke at length and with
amazing eloquence which mesmerized the crowd, reminding them
of the high esteem in which the Prophet, pbuh, held Usman, r.a.
Naila's narrative of the murder of Usman, r.a., is accepted by
all the classical historians of Islam. At that time, Muslims
did not think that ONE WOMAN's WITNESS cannot be accepted.
Also famous is the letter which Naila wrote to Ameer Muawiyya,
r.a., reminding him of verse 9 of Suraal-Hujurat and chiding
him for having failed to send timely help to Caliph Usman,
r.a. The way she begins that letter is remarkable, with a
calm assumption of equality: "From Naila, the daughter of
al-Farafisa, to Muawiyya the son of Abu Sufian."
the Return of the Taliban?:
NATO and Afghan War Lords Facing Slow Defeat
New Trend Special Report
Introduction: Americans find it almost impossible to understand
the resurgence of the Taliban. The process of demonization has
worked much too well. "Taliban oppress women. They don't want
schools or hospitals. They are crazy fanatics." That's how the
propaganda line runs. In a land where even decent women go out
in bikinis on the beach, the Taliban insistence on the full
burqa is difficult to explain. Just for starters, Americans
should remember that Afghanistan has been enveloped in the
flames of war since the Communist attempt to takeover in the
1970's. It's not America. Feminism is not going to work there
when survival is the first priority. In fact the burqa
has proven successful against the demoralization of the
family system which prolonged war brings.
Like the Americans these days, the Soviets too promised roads,
hospitals, schools and the "emancipation of women" [including
skirts and liquor]. The Taliban are saying exactly what the
mujahideen said in 1980: We must drive out the kafir
army first, stop all its "institutions," build our
independence and then build institutions based on Islam.
The Latest Crusade? At end of June 2006, NATO declared
that its forces, during a month long offensive, had killed
1,000 plus Taliban for a loss of 50 NATO troops from the
U.S., Britain, Canada, Italy, Denmark and other European
countries. This process of "killing the Taliban" seems to
be an ongoing process. The British command announced that
on July 2, another 41 Taliban were killed in Helmand province
and another 22 were killed on July 3 in the same province.
However, a closer look at the news reports indicates that the
people NATO has been killing are not Taliban but "suspects"
[British term] who could be Taliban but most probably are
not. Pakistani newspapers and eyewitnesses, as well as
refugees, from the area under attack indicate that ALMOST
ALL those killed in the NATO attacks are civilians. The
Pashtun tribes are voting with their feet and are leaving
the areas targeted by NATO. The actual Taliban losses are
estimated at no more than 50 killed [about the same number
as NATO] and 150 wounded. Observers say that if NATO had
actually killed 1,000 Taliban and is continuing to kill
them, the Islamic uprising would be over.
Taliban attacks continue on a daily basis, seem to be
well-coordinated and follow the classic guerrilla pattern,
cutting down the Afghan supporters of NATO, ambushing supply
lines, and hitting NATO troops who stray from their base
lines. A few martyrdom operators have also hit NATO but
these have been amateurish attempts, more impressive in
the fear they inspire than in any losses they inflict. This
might change if it is true that the Taliban have people in
Iraq learning from the attacks on U.S. troops.
The Taliban appear to be gaining a steady stream of recruits
from the Pushtun population, many of them the victims of
warlords who support Karzai and the U.S. There are reports
that the Taliban have literally slaughtered and beheaded
some bandits working for war lords who had committed murders
and rapes. The war lords as well as Shi'ites from Hazarajat
and Communists from General Dostum's forces are the mainstay
of the Afghan collaborators supporting NATO.
The Taliban are in no hurry to win. Time is on their side.
The Karzai regime is known for its corruption; its supporters
do not respect women and Islamic traditions, and armed
support for Karzai from NATO and the U.S. is a clear signal
to the Afghans that their entire way of life is under attack.
Most Afghans, however, are poverty stricken and poorly armed.
Only a trickle from among them can take the economic risk of
joining the Islamic resistance led by the Taliban. However,
the trickle is becoming a stream and is being fed by the
belligerance of the heavily armed NATO forces hammering
their way through the rugged Islamic homeland.
WHAT IS THE SECRET of TALIBAN SUCCESS? Observers say the
following factors are decisive:
1. A no-nonsense interpretation of Islam with the Shar'ia
being implemented to cut down hardened criminals and perverts.
2. Personal devotion to the Islamic way of life.
3. Outstanding leadership cadres at every level of the
resistance, ranging from Mullah Omar [whom many compare to
the sahaba of the Prophet, pbuh] to Mullah Dadullah,
the incomparable field commander responsible for military
success against unthinkable odds, to dedicated young Mullahs
at the local level known for their spartan way of life and
4. Support from the Arab world which probably includes
finances for weaponry and for the families of fighters,
very important in a land of extreme poverty.
5. The most important factor is the fearlessness and
endurance of Taliban cadres. Observers agree that the
Taliban have far outdone the mujahideen who fought the
Soviets. The anti-Soviet jihad had the support of Pakistan
and the U.S. By contrast, the Taliban are hemmed in by
80,000 Pakistani troops coordinating operations with the
U.S. on the southern frontier, plus U.S. and NATO troops
within Afghanistan, plus warlords supporting Karzai, along
with support for Karzai from India and Russia.
6. Evidently, the Taliban have gained control of most of
southwestern, southern and southeastern Afghanistan. This
is considerable territory, extremely rugged and suitable
for guerrilla forces, within which the Taliban leadership
is safe from deadly U.S. air attacks. In addition the people
of Pakistani tribal areas are in armed support of the Taliban
and have successfuly stopped Pakistani troops from detailed
takeover of Islamic strongholds. Months of fighting between
Islamic Pakistanis in Waziristan and the Pakistani army have
left nearly a thousand killed on each side. Pakistani troops
control many of the strong points but have failed to leave
permanent garrisons within the Islamic territories.
Allah commands: "Drive them out from where they drove you out."
"Oppression is worse than death."
[Two quotes from the Qur'an which inspire the Taliban.]
Irish MP: Israel an "abhorrent and despicable" regime
30 June 2006
Statement issued by Aengus O Snodaigh Sinn Fein member in
the Irish parliament and his party's spokesman on
international affairs and human rights
Sinn Fein International Affairs and Human Rights
spokesperson Aengus O Snodaigh TD has described Israel as
"one of the most abhorrent and despicable regimes on the
planet." Questioning the Minister for Foreign Affairs
Dermot Ahern in the Dail today he said the kidnap by
Israel of some 25 democratically elected Palestinian
representatives demonstrates "the true nature of Israel's
commitment to not so democratic principles."
He said, "Israel is without doubt one of the most
abhorrent and despicable regimes on the planet. According
to the UN Secretary General for Political Affairs, in the
month prior to the capture of the Israeli soldier by
Palestinians at least 49 Palestinians, including 11
children, were killed by Israeli forces and 259 injured. A
ground assault on Gaza began yesterday involving tanks,
bulldozers, thousands of troops undercover of air fire and
the demolition of key pieces of civilian infrastructure
including bridges and Gaza's electric power plant. The
bombardment of civilian infrastructure amounts to
collective punishment and a crime against humanity and the
abduction and imprisonment by Israel of some 25
democratically elected Palestinian representatives
demonstrates the true nature of Israel's commitment to not
so democratic principles.
"Minister Ahern must clarify whether the Department of
Foreign Affairs approves of the use of Shannon for the
transfer of helicopters or any military apparatus to
Israel. He must also indicate if he agrees that the role
played by this state in the sale and transfer of arms and
military apparatus to human rights abusers is absolutely
unacceptable and must cease immediately and what steps he
will take to ensure this ceases."
"The death of the Israeli settler is deeply regrettable
and I would call on the Palestinians who are holding the
Israeli soldier not to harm him."

Ba'asyir says Indonesian holy warriors should go to Israel
JAKARTA (AP): A reputed leader of an al-Qaeda-linked terror
group said Monday that Indonesia should send Islamic holy
warriors to Israel to punish it for unleashing airstrikes
in Palestinian territories.
"Israel is the enemy of Allah," militant cleric Abu Bakar
Ba'asyir told hundreds of members of the Muslim-based
Crescent Star Party in the capital Jakarta. "That is why
Indonesia should send holy warriors there."
Ba'asyir, who recently completed a 26-month jail term for
conspiracy in the 2002 Bali bombings that left 202 dead,
spoke as Israel massed tanks and troops along Gaza's northern
border. That followed a weekend of escalating violence in
Palestinian territories, triggered by the capture of an
While supporting Israel unconditionally, the United States
and Australia allege that Ba'asyir is a key leader in the
al-Qaeda-linked militant group Jamaah Islamiyah, blamed for
a string of bloody bombings across Indonesia since 2000.
His release from prison last month raised concerns that he
would energize Indonesia's small, Islamic radical fringe by
making impassioned speeches at rallies and mosques.
