Dear readers: asalamu alaikum, as you start Ramadan, remember our
political prisoners. Make du'a for Imam Jamil al-Amin, Dr. Omar
Abdel Rahman, Prof. Sami al-Arian, Masaud Khan,
Ahmed 'Abdel Sattar,
Dr. Ali al-Timimi, Jose Padilla and many other innocents in U.S.
prisons. Remember, they are part of the family of Islam in America.
Without them, we are all victims of this system.
[A message from Jamaat al-Muslimeen.]
New Trend Report:
Alhamdulillah! ISNA's Fitna is failing. More and more masjids
and American Muslim communities broke away from ISNA's attempt to
violate Islamic Law on Ramadan. Inshallah, Muzammil Siddiqui, Syed
Syeed and other ISNA bosses will one day be tried under Sharia Law
for defying the clear teachings of Muhammad Mustafa, pbuh about
Ramadan and Eid. They should also be tried for collaboration with
the Bush administration.
[Dr. Omar Afzal has a whole list of masjids which followed moon
sighting and rejected ISNA's blatant anti-Sunnah attempt to start
Ramadan on the wrong day.]
For Jamaat al-Muslimeen's effort to check the correct day for Ramadan,
The Pope called Islam an EVIL religion, condemned Jihad and
insulted the Prophet, pbuh. Here is the response:
PAKISTAN led the Muslim world again on September 22, 2006. In
just about every city in the country there were rallies against
the Pope's message of hate and abuse against Prophet Muhammad, pbuh.
This time a coalition for the HONOR of the PROPHET [pbuh] gave the
signal for this great expression of faith and unity.
In Lahore alone, khutbas were given against the Pope at 6,000
masjids [mosques] representing the entire spectrum of Islam,
from Hanafi to Ahle Hadith to Shia.
In Karachi there was a HUGE rally against the Pope's invective at
The masses of Pakistan are condemning the Pope. At rallies in
Quetta, Peshawar, Mardan, Rawalpindi, Sukker, resolutions
were passed calling for the resignation of the Pope. At other
rallies, in Multan, Hyderabad, Faisalabad, the Pope was accused
of following the agenda of President Bush.
[New Trend analysts say that the Pope is following the directions
of the Zionists. He is very close to Israel terror groups and
took pains to show his support for International Jewry by making a
"pilgrimage" to Auschwitz. More German civilians were killed in
World War II than Jews, but the Pope has no solace for the German

celebrate the Hizbullah victory over Israel. Witnesses say
that this was the biggest gathering in the history of Lebanon.
Shaikh Hasan Nasrallah addressed the gathering at great risk to

said that Hizbullah would not disarm and would not allow either
UN forces or Lebanese forces to disarm it.

that Bush is a terrorist and an aggressor against weak and
* President Ahmedinejad was impressive in his interview with
CNN's Anderson Cooper [September 22]. He uncovered Cooper
as a spokesman of Israel and International Jewry rather than a
genuine American journalist. Cooper was extremely rude and kept
insisting on issues relating to the Jewish claims of the
"holocaust." Ahmedinejad pointed out that the IAEA has found
absolutely no evidence about any Iranian plan to produce nuclear
weapons. Anderson Cooper was stumped and quoted from an old IAEA
report to give the Iranian President the lie. Deeply frustrated,
Cooper, after the interview set up his own studio props to claim
that Ahmedinejad is wrong. [To New Trend, it appears that CNN is
being fed stories against Islamic Iran not only by the Israel lobby
but by the MKO terrorists who tried many a time to topple the power
of Islam in Iran.] [At a much dirtier and outright smear level,
a person named Glen Beck has been attacking Iran on the CNN
Prime program. He conveniently leaves out the fact that
Ahmedinejad is a democratically elected leader with mass
support in Iran.]

Reaching out to Muslim Communities: Falls Church, Virginia
On September 22, 2006 Jamaat al-Muslimeen gave out cards after
Juma listing businesses which support Israel. The distribution
was done at a masjid called Dar-al-Hijra, in the suburbs outside
Washington in Falls Church, Virginia. The boycott card was given
to 127 persons while the card about Imam Jamil and prof al-Arian
was given to 21 persons.
The boycott list includes Coca Cola, Starbucks and Home Depot.
Ramadan: The Correct Date
The Ramadan crescent was not sighted anywhere in the U.S. on
September 23. Hence Ramadan's correct starting date is September 25.
Inshallah, all those looking to Jamaat al-Muslimeen for info will
start on September 25.
No one has claimed a sighting on the east coast or in the mid west.
However there are some claims in the west and California. These
seem to be illusions coming from people who claim to have seen
the crescent AFTER moonset! However, at least these people tried
to follow the crescent. They started fasting on September 24.
Most shameful is the attitude of ISNA's bosses who openly rejected
the Sunnah and announced Ramadan [and also] Eid without moonsighting.
These are the Qadianis of our time who are following the signals of
the Bush administration to try and create an 'American Islam" in
which there is no need to follow Muhammad Mustafa, pbuh. These
violators of Islamic Law misled their innocent and naive followers
to start Ramadan on September 23.
Jamaat al-Muslimeen urges U.S. Muslims to join us in seeking Allah's
forgiveness. We must pray towards the Ka'aba, not towards the White
House. America's material culture has become the 'god' of many. They
put convenience and comfort above the Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad,
pbuh. Their leaders are trying to erode the Sunnah but have not yet
started an open campaign against Hadith, letting that be done by
fringe people like the heretical followers of Ghulam Ahmed Pervez.
Attempt to Sight Ramadan Crescent on September 23.
Br. Sulaiman Solano is a member of Jamaat al-Muslimeen's central
committee [Shoora]. He is well known for his dedication to Islam.
He has given, personally, at his own expense, Spanish translation
of the Qur'an to 500 latinos and latinas.
On September 23, in Brownsville, Texas, which is the southernmost
tip of Texas, Br. Solano and a group of friends went out to look
for the crescent. The sky was clear of any clouds and the area has
vast open spaces, and the group knew that the crescent would be
VERY slim. No crescent was seen!
The crescent was nowhere to be seen. It definitely was not seen on
the east coast of the U.S. either.
WAR NEWS with Brief Analysis by New Trend
CANADA's VICTIM: Maher Arar tortured in Syria at U.S. Orders,
accused by RCMP
A court of inquiry headed by Justice O'Connor cleared Maher Arar of
any connections with al-Qaida.
[Some of this info was released on CNN, Sept.19].
Maher Arar is a Canadian citizen of Syrian descent. He was arrested
at a U.S. airport while returning to Canada from a trip overseas.
After his arrest, Canada's police known as RCMP told the U.S. that
Arar has al-Qaida connections. The U.S. then sent him to Syria to
be tortured. He was tortured for months on end. Finally the
Syrians came to the conclusion that Arar does not have any
al-Qaida info of any kind.
The shameful treatment of Maher Arar provides the following conclusions:
Canada is as hostile to Islamic people as the U.S. At the slightest
indication, Canada claims that a Muslim is a terrorist. The Muslims
being held as 'terrorist suspects' in Canada are victims of the same
anti-Islam mentality flourishing in Ottawa. Even the telephone chit
chat of the wives of the suspects were published by the Canadian
media to create an environment of suspicion and hatred against Muslims.
The Arar case provides some understanding of President Bush's claim
that the U.S. does not practice torture. Aside from the fact that
the U.S. has finessed torture methods which stop short of the
disruption of the prisoner's internal organs, the U.S. uses Egypt,
Syria, Pakistan etc for torture when it wants "unsophisticated' torture.
SYRIA is working as closely with the U.S. as Egypt's Hosni Mubarak is.
Many naive Arabs think highly of Syria's rulers because of the
apparent hostility of Israel and the U.S. to them. However,
torture carried out at the orders of the U.S. is only possible
if the U.S. and Syrian regimes are very closely linked to each
other. Earlier this month, Syrian troops sacrificed one of their
officers to thwart an Islamic attack on the U.S. embassy in Damascus.
The Syrians killed all four of the attackers. SYRIA DID NOT FIRE A
SHOT during Israel's 34-day assault on Lebanon, nor has it fought
Israel in the last 18 years.
NUCLEAR JAZZ AT THE UN
By Edward W. Miller, MD
" Some countries create problems for other countries and make the
impression that these are problems for the entire international
community...Actually, they are making problems for themselves. "
Ahmedinejad, speaking at the Shanghai Cooperative Organization
During his recent speech to the United Nations General Assembly on
September 19th, , President Bush spoke briefly and directly to the
Iranian people saying that he wanted a " diplomatic solution " to
the impasse over their country's nuclear activities. Bush accompanied
this statement by a by a warning that their leaders " were
obstructing progress" by both financing terrorism and pursuing
nuclear weapons. (Washing Post 20 Sept ) Toward the end of his
speech Bush criticized Syrian government for its support of both
Hamas and Hezbullah. Bush received but moderate applause from an
auditorium filled with UN Ambassadors representing over 180
countries, many increasingly hostile to Us attempts at hegemony
in the Mideast.
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, speaking some hours after Bush,
took aim at the UN Security Council itself, saying the United States'
permanent inclusion on the Council undermines its effectiveness and
credibility. " As long as the council is unable to act on behalf of
the entire international community in a transparent, just and
democratic manner, it will neither be legitimate nor effective,"
Iran's president stated.. Ahmadinejad had particularly harsh words
for what he called the Council's inaction in Lebanon, Iraq and the
Palestinian territories. "It does not matter if people are murdered
in Palestine," ..
"That apparently does not violate human rights." , Ahmadinejad added,
criticizing the "blanketed and unwarranted support" for Israel ...
"For 33 long days, the Lebanese lived under the barrage of fire and
bombs, and close to 1.5 million of them were displaced," Ahmadinejad
continued, "Meanwhile, some members of the Security Council
practically chose a path that provided ample opportunity for the
aggressor to achieve its objectives militarily." The Security Council
"was practically incapacitated by certain powers to even call for a
cease-fire," Referring to Israel directly, , Ahmadinejad said, "That
regime has been a constant source of threat and insecurity in the
Middle East region, waging war and spilling blood and impeding the
progress of regional countries."... "Where can the people of Iraq
seek refuge, and from whom can the people of Iraq seek justice?" he
asked. How can the Security Council act "when the occupiers
themselves are permanent members of the council?" ... He called
on the UN General Assembly "to rescue the Security Council from
its current state" by including envoys from Africa, the Middle East
and the Non-Aligned Movement. Ahmadinejad added that his country's
nuclear program was conducted "under the watchful eye of
International Atomic Energy Agency] inspectors." The applause
Some months after his election on June 24th, 2005 as Iran's president,
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had notified the IAEA (International Atomic
Energy Agency ) that Iran was resuming its research into nuclear
fuel, (Assoc. Press,10 Jan. 2006) removing its seals on its nuclear
research facilities, and allowing work to resume despite warnings
from some Western countries re: "nuclear ambitions." The seals'
removal, "in the presence of IAEA inspectors.
In February, 2005 Russia and Iran had signed an agreement to supply
fuel to Iran's new nuclear reactor in Bushehr. Under the deal Iran
was to return spent nuclear fuel rods from the reactor, designed and
built by the Russians, an arrangement made to satisfy the demands of
the IAEA, which had been under tremendous pressure from the US and
Israel to prevent Iran from recycling its own atomic fuel.
Despite these assurances, all hell had broken out in paranoid
Washington and Tel Aviv. US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice
said Iran had "crossed the threshold" "I would hope that seeing
the very powerful reaction of the international community, Iran
would now take a step back and look at the isolation that it is
about to experience." Writer Gordon Prather
characterized Washington's response thus: " Condi and the
neo-crazies all running around in circles of diminishing radius
screaming something about the IAEA Board having found Iran to be
in non-compliance "nonsense ".
Peddling the "anti-Iran" message, Washington's boys got into trouble
this January in India.
( New Delhi | January 29, 2006 )
"Taking strong umbrage at American envoy David Mulford's statement
that India must vote against Iran on the nuclear issue, the Samajwadi
Party today demanded his immediate recall by the Bush administration,
saying the remarks were "a slight on India's sovereignty and
unacceptable to the people". In a resolution, passed unanimously at
the SP's Parliamentary Board meeting here, the party also decided to
give a "befitting" reply to US President George Bush during his
coming visit to India.
Last year, of the EU countries, Germany alone offered tacit support
for the Bush position. Speaking in a joint press conference with
conservative German Chancellor Angela Merkel, President George W Bush
had said a nuclear Iran was unacceptable and singled out Israel for
special US concern." As Patrick J. Buchanan put it (18 Jan 2006) :
" Meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Bush employed the
same grim terms he used before invading Iraq: " If Iran goes forward
with nuclear enrichment, said Bush, it could pose a grave threat to
the security of the world." Since the Bush-Merkel meeting, however,
Germany's position, seems to have changed . On June 29th, 2006 The
Daily Star reported: " Germany accepts Iranian nuclear work,
provided IAEA rules out arms research ... Iran should be allowed
to enrich uranium for power generation provided there is close
monitoring by UN inspectors to ensure that it is not trying to
develop atomic weapons, Germany's defense minister stated. "
Just as our Congress, during the Clinton years, voted money to
support the US AID organization in a campaign to undermine
Yugoslavia's government prior to bombing that country, just so
Washington is at it again in Iran: As Glenn Kessler noted in
the Washington Post ( February 16, 2006) ; Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice asked Congress yesterday to provide $75 million
in emergency funding to step up pressure on the Iranian government,
including expanding radio and television broadcasts into Iran and
promoting internal opposition to the rule of religious leaders.
Thus boosting the $10 million already devoted to confronting Iran
and signaling " a new effort by the Bush administration to persuade
other nations to join the United States in a coalition to bolster
Iranian activists, halt Iran's funding of terrorism and stem its
nuclear ambitions", as our State Department officials said.
Not content with undermining Iran's political organizations, Bush
is now attacking the Iranian's economic support system: As reported
in the 9 Sept, 2006 SF Chronicle: " The Bush administration moved
to sever the largest state-owned bank in Iran from the US
financial system. Stuart Levy, the Treasury Department's
undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence said
" the governments action was against Bank Saderat which the
US says is used to transfer money to terrorist groups such
As expected, the Zionists resent much of the energy behind
Washington's anti-Iranian campaign. On Jun 7, 2006 ... Carol
Giacomo, Washington-based Diplomatic Correspondent for Reuters
reported: " As the Bush administration pursues sensitive
diplomacy, the influential U.S. pro-Israel lobbying group
AIPAC has sent out a fundraising letter seeking support for
a tough U.S. line against Iran's nuclear program... requesting
contributions to build support for a proposed law tightening
U.S. sanctions on Iran."
Pro-Israel organizations in the US have been lobbying for a more
hard-line position against Tehran. These include The American
Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the American Jewish
Congress the American Jewish Committee, The Brooking Institution,
-- whose Middle East program is increasingly pro-Israel, The
Saban Centre on Middle East Policy, the American Enterprise
Institute, and the Washington Institute for Near East Policy,
an offshoot of AIPAC advised by former US Middle East Envoy Dennis Ross.
During the recent September discussions amongst the Security
Council members, the political rug was tugged, not-too-gently,
out from under Bush' and his anti-Iran agenda. Both China and
Russia, who have helped construct Iran's nuclear facilities and
trained its engineers, signaled they might veto any Resolution
aimed at an embargo against Iran, while France's President Chirac,
in an apparent about-face, insisted on continuing Iran-EU
negotiations over the nuclear issue.
Iran's basic intent to reprocess its own atomic fuel represents
an intelligent economic approach to its energy needs. As the
radioactive rods decay and are removed from the reactor, over
85% of their active fusion materials remains and that UR235 can
be reprocessed and returned to the reactor. The waste is discarded.
Paying someone else to do this may not be cost-effective.
A bit of history might be of interest. Thirty years ago, during
Nixon's administration, our Zionist bullfrog, Kissinger, then
Secretary of State, met with Iran's minister, Hushang Ansary in
March, 1975 and signed a $15 Billion economic agreement which
included the construction of eight large nuclear power plants
which were to provide Iran with some eight thousand megawatts
of electricity. ( see: THE EAGLE AND THE LION BY James A. Bill
pg. 204). I spoke recently with my friend J.A. Bill. He thinks
both the Japanese and Soviets assisted with the construction and
that only two of the plants eventually reached their megawatt output.
Our economists' crystal balls foretell increased competition for
energy in the future. Driving Iran, a major petroleum source to
find her markets and political interests elsewhere is sheer madness,
as economist , professor and author, Michel Chossudovsky warns in
his August 24th 2006 article
("http://www.globa GlobalResearch.ca lresearch.ca/)
" Barely acknowledged by the Western media, military exercises
organized by Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan under
the Collective Security Treaty Organisation, (CSTO) were launched
on the 24th of August,2006. These war games, officially tagged as
part of a counter terrorism program, are in direct response to US
military threats in the region including the planned attacks
against Iran. ... Iranian media have speculated that the United
States is using Azerbaijan to create a military counterweight to
Iran on the Caspian......... the US is trying to step up the
pressure on Iran, as well as to defend its own investments in
Azerbaijan and Kazakstan. It is also trying to guarantee the
security of the strategically vital Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline.
A military presence on the Caspian would give the United States
an opportunity to at least partially offset its weakening influence
in Central Asia, .... Iran was invited to become a full member of
the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). So far no concrete
timetable for Iran's accession to the SCO has bee set. This
enlargement of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, which
also includes observer status for India, Pakistan and Mongolia
counters US military and strategic objectives in the broader
region. Moreover.... India and Russia signed on August 20th, a
farreaching military cooperation agreement. Although not
officially directed against the US, the purpose of this agreement
is understood, China and Russia, which are partners in the SCO
also have a longstanding common interest.
Both Washington and Tel Aviv are making fools of themselves by
creating this atomic bru ha ha. The Security Council's permanent
members all have atomic weapons. Pakistan and India, likewise.
Israel has over 200 atomic- armed missiles, but has never signed
the NPT Treaty nor joined the IAEA. She depends on US backing to
maintain her uncooperative and threatening nuclear stance.
Washington must allow Iran to pursue her legitimate energy needs,
and snatch Israel, this dangerous Zionist parasite off our payroll
and out of our politics before she gets us into more trouble.
