Latest War News:
Afghanistan: Heaviest British Loss [from Urdu language papers.]

On September 1, Taliban shot down a NATO aircraft, identified as a Nimrod MR2 usually used for reconnaissance. Fourteen British troops, including three airmen, were killed. The Taliban claim that they used a Stinger, probably left over from the anti-Soviet Jihad.

Even more spectacular, a week back, a low flying Dutch F-16, on a strafing mission, was shot down. The pilot was unable to eject.

NATO has adopted the policy of declaring each crash an "accident" but this declaration is made so quickly that it creates doubts about how could NATO know right away?

IRAQ: Situation Getting Worse by the Day for the U.S. [from NT's Media monitor]

The Pentagon revealed that 64 U.S. troops were killed in Iraq in August, raising the total to 2640. Another 3 have been killed in September. It appears that the new leader of Al-Qaida in Iraq, al-Masri [the Egyptian] has re-organized the Islamic resistance. On September 3, the U.S. said it had captured his second-in-command al-Sayeedi and killed several others. The censorship on the details of U.S. losses: how, where, indicates the situation is bad for the U.S.

The Shi'ite hit squads are still busy killing Sunnis by the dozen every night, with the tacit approval of the U.S.-installed regime, trying to "cleanse' the Baghdad area of Sunnis. Sunni counterattacks have killed several hundred U.S-backed Shi'a police and military in one week, along with scores of innocents.

Civil order seems to have broken down. U.S. media report that on September 2, ten Pakistanis and 3 Indians going to pilgrimage in Kerbala were killed by bandits in the desert.

Earler, a bitter battle occurred among pro-U.S. and pro-Sadr Shias, resulting in 50 U.S.-backed Shias and 21 "Sadris" killed. The Shia areas are not fighting the U.S. but are still very tense.

PALESTINE: Imam Badi Ali [North Carolina], notes that Hamas seems to have lost the will to resist as Israelis come in every day and murder Islamic activists, sometimes in front of their homes and families. Election victory under occupation has made Hamas passive in an effort to keep its government.
[This is like the Jamaate Islami government in Pakistan's Frontier Province. Elected to support the Taliban, it completely withdrew support from the Taliban and started building its own bureaucracy.]
Resistance is more important than titles and positions for Palestinans but Hamas is losing its way, says Imam Ali.

1. America's Conscience: August 30: Rocky Anderson, mayor of Salt Lake City, Utah, expressed a strong condemnation of President Bush's war activities. It coincided with Bush's visit to SLC. He was met a vociferous crowd of protestors.

2. The Muslims America's Controllers Want:

America's Zionist media are giving very positive coverage to the annual Convention of ISNA [Islamic Society of North America]. FOX TV which destroyed the career of Prof. Sami al-Arian endorsed ISNA's new President, Ingrid Mattson on August 31. The FOX TV host urged Mattson to defeat the "extremists" and she agreed. ISNA's figures for the number of people at the Convention are being repeated by all three Zionist networks, CNN, MSNBC and Fox.

New Trend funnies:

1. Canada's government has been harrassing Muslims and labelling them as terrorists. How inept the Canadian White man can be came out in a Reuters report on August 30: During an Air Canada flight, the pilot LOCKED HIMSELF OUT of his cockpit when he went to the rest room. He couldn't get back in. The door of the cockpit had to be taken off to let him get back in so that he could continue to fly the plane.

2. USA has found an answer to Adam Ghadan, an American Muslim, who keeps appearing on Islamic web sites to lecture America. On September 2, Adam appeared on a web site with Islamic leader Ayman al-Zawahiri. Al-Zawahiri merely introduced Adam for only a minute after which Adam gave a 46 miniute lecture on Islam urging Americans to give up their corrupt ways and accept Islam. The lecture was either too scary or too effective because U.S. media cut off almost all of it. In return, the Zionist media have a "weapon" of their own. His name is Haitham Bundakji and he claims to be an "imam" at the Islamic Society of Orange County, near Los Angeles.

So whenever Adam Ghadan appears, looking handsome and impressive in his turban with a powerful beard, the media respond with Haitham Bundakji. He wears a suit and tie, very dull colors, has a big moustache and is clean shaven. Bundakji's claim to fame is that when Adam embraced Islam and expressed dissatisfaction with the Islamic Society, Bundakji tried to correct him. Poor Bundakji was slapped in the face by Adam [which also proves, according to the Zionist media, that he, Adam, is a terrorist]. This time Bundakji tried hard to condemn the extremist Adam. Bundakji said: "We do not want people like him."

[New Trend's suggestion to the Zionist media: Put Bundakji on Zionist TV screens around the world so that secular, democratic Bundakji may defeat all the Adams of the world, the Islamists who are leaving their homes to go to the mountains of Afghanistan. Bundakji's face will convince the Muslims that democracy and secularism are wonderful, and ties and shaven faces look better than turbans and beards. [LOL!]

3. Krauthammer, FOX TV, is the leading Zionist pro-war war journalist in America. He also happens to be an elite Jew, one of the Chosen ones. Here is his view of the 34-day Israeli offensive against Lebanon:

"Hizbullah lost." "The rubble" of the cities in Lebanon shows that Hizbullah suffered "huge losses." Hizbullah is now "isolated."

Imam Jamil Abdullah al-Amin: Latest News: Would you like to help?
[From Br. Khalil Abdur-Rahman]

Imam Jamil's support group is planning to go back to court for a re-trial. There is a good chance that the Imam can be re-tried. Readers might remember that the court had not accepted important evidence coming from the person who saw the incident for which the Imam was charged and called 9.11. If that witness is accepted by the court now, a new trial could occur.

{if you would like to contact Br. Khalil Abdur-Rahman, in Greensboro, North Carolina, by phone or mail, please contact us through New Trend. Br. khalil is the Coordinator of the National Support Committee for Imam Jamil al-Amin and is in ongoing contact with the Imam in prison.}

Distinguished Historian David Irving in Austrian Prison: Jewish/Israeli Hand in his arrest

Latest news: As the deadline for Mr. Irving's appeal approaches, his prison conditions are getting worse. He feels that he is being silenced in an attempt to finish him off for ever.

The application for his arrest was made years back by the "Documentation Center for the Austrian Resistance," an almost 100% Marxist and Jewish body in Vienna, supported by the "Israeli Cultural Community," an Israeli pressure group. The arrest warrant was issued by police chief Bogl IMMEDIATELY on getting the application.

International Jewry, unable to stop Irving from publishing his deeply researched books, finally got him into prison. So much for freedom of expression!

Islamic Activist Writes JetBlue: Denial of Access to Arab Youth Owing to T-Shirt

On August 12, 2006, an Arab human rights activist was denied access on a JetBlue flight from JFK Airport [New York] to Oakland, California simply for wearing a t-shirt that read "We will not be silent" in Arabic and English. My response to Jetblue is below.

Sis. 'Aisha

JetBlue Airways
P.O. Box 17435
Salt Lake City, UT 84117-7435

To Whom It May Concern:

I was distressed to read in Metro (08/31/2006 edition) the article under the headline: "Man told he can't fly with Arabic T-shirt on." According to the article, Raed Jarrar wore a t-shirt that read "We will not be silent" in Arabic and English. He was stopped as he was about to board his JetBlue flight from JFK airport to Oakland, CA on August 12, 2006.

In the article, JetBlue spokeswoman, Jenny Dervin, acknowledged that the incident occurred and that there would be an investigation. She further stated that the incident occurred just two days after the British authorities announced the foiling of the plot to blow up jetliners over the Atlantic destined to the U.S. Ms. Dervin admitted that JetBlue has no policy regarding apparel.

Not only did your airline's racism and paranoia prevent this paying customer from boarding his flight but, according to your policy he is not entitled to a refund but only credit for his next trip. The airport security accosted your paying customer because you instructed them to do so.

Since 2003, I have been a loyal JetBlue customer and I have highly recommended your services to family and friends. However, I intend to make everyone I know aware of JetBlue's policy to violate paying customers rights to free speech based on racism and cultural bias. I refuse to fly any airline that practices such racist policies!

The airport ban has been on liquid products not a t-shirt with foreign writing on it. There is no valid excuse for refusing this man his right to take the flight that he paid for unless it was based on racial bias. He certainly was not perceived as a terrorist threat according to any Transportation Security Administration guidelines. I am appalled that JetBlue personnel overreacted in such a despicable manner.

Revolutionary Khutba: Latest in a Series

Islam: Religion of Peace, Stands against Oppression. No Compromise with Taghoot. Anaysis of the Strategies of Anti-Islam Think Tanks: Burqa, 'moderate Islam,' Hadith

The most recent Friday [juma'] khutba by Br. Kaukab Siddique was at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland on September 1, 2006. Although students have just arrived at the campus for Fall Semester, the Muslims among them, both brothers and sisters, turned up for the Juma'. Here are the main points of the khutba.

Part 1 of the Khutba:

TEXT: "For We [Allah] certainly sent among every people a messenger [with the command], 'Serve Allah and strictly stay away from Taghoot." [The Qur'an 16:36]

Yes, Islam is a religion of peace. It gives spiritual peace and stability to the Muslim through the five daily prayers.

Yes, Islam is a religion of peace. Muslims respect the rights of their neighbors and of the society in which they live. They do not abuse or insult or attack the religions of others.

Yes, Islam is a religion of peace. Muslims can be trusted. Muslims do not break the law. They do not cheat or lie or steal. They do not drink, fornicate or gamble.

Peace does not mean that we should bow down before oppressors. We bow before Allah alone.

Peace does not mean that we try to ASSIMILATE and become like others. This country does not belong to any one race or way of life. The whole earth belongs to Allah.

Peace does not mean that we start saying that Islam is not very different from Christianity and Judaism and that these are all Abrahamic religions. No, we have come with the Truth [al-Haqq] not to follow the unbelievers. Our identity must be respected as distinct, different and unique.

We are here to solve America's problems, not to become part of the problem. Racism is at the roots of America. The Katrina disaster showed that racism is alive and well in USA. Note how Black leaders are not allowed on TV to discuss Katrina, just as Islamic activists are not allowed on media to speak on Palestine or Afghanistan. Immigrants must read the Autobiography of Malcolm X to understand how deep racism is here.

Peace does not mean that we give a "bloc vote" to Abu Jahl, and when he turns against us, we turn to Abu Lahab, and if he kicks us, then we turn to Abu Sufian. We have clear guidance in the Qur'an and the Hadith. We don't need to follow those who are themselves astray.

Muslim intellectuals have a a duty to analyze the forces which are working against Islam in America. A leading think tank linked to intelligence services, RAND Corporation, provided the formula which is behind the daily attacks on Islam. Its main points were:

1. Divide the Muslims with labels like "fundamentalist," "extremist," "moderate," progressive."

2. Create an "American Islam" or a "moderate Islam." Support those who are assimilating or are alienated.

3. Attack Hadith because most American Muslims do not know how to study and understand Hadith.

The U.S. government started a huge media campaign to attack the burqa of Afghan women as if it was invented by the Taliban. It was a cynical excuse to justify aggression against a defenseless country. Thousands of Afghan civilians, including women in burqa, were killed in the U.S. bombing.

An anthropologist, Dr. Lila Abu-Lughod, has exposed. the hollowness of the arguments against the burqa. Whatever social changes emerge in Muslim countries, must come from within the Qur'an and Hadith, and not be imposed by invaders. The U.S. should have learned this from the fate of the Soviets. The Taliban are now coming back, quite undefeated.

OUR ANSWER to Rand Corporation: There is only ONE ISLAM and that is the Islam brought by Muhammad, pbuh, which is eternalized in the Qur'an and interpreted in the Hadith.

OUR ANSWER to the oppressors: There is only ONE UMMAH; there is no such thing as an American Islam or a Pakistani Islam.

PART 2 of the Khutba:

TEXT: "The believers, men and WOMEN, are protectors/guardians of EACH OTHER: they stand for what is just and they forbid wrong-doing....' [9:71]

The enemies of Islam have found that one of our major weaknesses is the way we treat WOMEN. Many Muslims are mentally still in the colonial era, the time of slavery, and do not give women the rights, the Qur'an and Hadith have given them.

Our enemies pretend that they care for Muslim women and they try to intervene in Muslim communities and Muslim countries through this pretense.

Women in America are the victims of mass sexual objectfication. If these people do not care for the women of America, on what moral basis can they try to liberate Muslim women?

Muslims must realize that in many Muslim countries, the inheritance rights for women, as wives, daughters, mothers, aunts, which are enhrined in the Qur'an, are being denied or evaded.

To stop the distribution of wealth ordered by the Qur'an, Muslims marry their cousins to keep wealth restricted to their families.

Women's rights to an equal place in the masjid are still being denied. As a result, women who are in the imperialist ambit are trying to claim leadership of women.

Notice that the FIRST MARTYR of Islam was a woman, Sumayya, may Allah be pleased with her. She was a slave woman but her mind was so strong that she defied her slave master and stood fast on Islamic teachings. Finally when the slave master abused the Prophet, pbuh, in her presence, she, though helpless, spat in the slave master's face. Martyrdom is highest in the Islamic ranks of merit, second only to prophethood [which has ended].

When Sumayya, r.a., though a helpless slave, would not submit to the tyrant, on what basis do we go around kow towing to the White House, the Pentagon and the State Department?

Under the U.S. Constitution, we have the right to speak, write, organize, demonstrate peacefully. Islam makes it our duty to speak out.

For believers, there cannot be any subservience to the Pharoah in the White House, nor any silence before the liars on TV and radio. We must celebrate the Islamic victory in Lebanon. The Israeli tank columns could not break through. The arrogance of the Zionists has been brought low.

Remember that the Muslims are not trying to take over any non-Muslim land. Kashmir, Afghanistan, Iraq, Chechnya, Palestine, Lebanon are all Muslim lands. The struggle to expel occupation forces from these lands is a just struggle of which U.S. Muslims should be proud and supportive.

Islam does not permit the imposition of religion on anyone. No one is trying to impose Islam on Christians, Jews, Hindus or Buddhists. The struggle, Jihad in Arabic, as stated in the Qur'an is clearly against OPPRESSION, condemns the violation of human rights, and commands resistance to occupation and usurpation.

So, as the Prophet, pbuh, said to Hassan ibn Thabit, r.a., 'O Hassan, do their Hujw.' Hujw is a form of poetry meant to expose the inner contradictions and crimes of the oppressors.

O Muslims, SPEAK OUT against the oppressive actions of the people in power. That is not politics but an essential and obligatory part of Islam.

U.S. Muslims say: ISNA Does not Represent Islam in America: ASK ALLAH (S.W.T.) TO GUIDE ISNA MUNAFIQ NEXT TUESDAY

Islamic Community Net
August 31, 2006

Assalamu aleikum.

"Whosoever of you sees an evil action, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart ľ and that is the weakest of faith."


ISNA and its "Fiqh Council" apostasized from Islam by refusing to accept Qur'an and Sunnah as the basis for moonsighting decisions. Insha'Allah, the following session at Islam Online will be a good time to ask ISNA leaders to end the "moon calculation" fitnah that ISNA is attempting to foist upon Muslims in North America.

Be sure to contact the munafiq during the time that the session is open.
North American times for when the "live fatwa" session is scheduled to begin:

Tuesday, September 5, 2006:
11 a.m., Eastern Daylight Time
10 a.m., Central Daylight Time
9 a.m., Mountain Daylight Time
8 a.m., Pacific Daylight Time
No doubt, most urgings will not receive any actual answer, but insha'Allah the messages will be received and the pressure may be instructive and may ultimately help guide Dr. Muzammil H. Siddiqi back to Islam. Make du'a that he will receive hikmat from Allah (S.W.T.), abandon his fitnah and return to Islam.

For those who don't know, it should be pointed out that the so-called "Fiqh Council of North America" is an "ISNA-only" fiqh committee that has no authority to make any decisions for Muslims in the U.S. Fewer than 1/2 of one percent of all Muslims in North America (i.e., fewer than 1 in every 400 Muslims) are ISNA members. And the "Fiqh Council" is only a tiny part of the ISNA membership, without any actual authority to issue fatwahs. No fatwa on Islam can be accepted from anyone who rejects Qur'an and Sunnah. Nor can any witness be accepted from such a person.

There are numerous actual Muslim national and continental organizations in the United States and North America.
