Re: Canada's Victim Maher Arar: 14,000 Muslim Prisoners in CIA Dungeons?
Can you tell us anything about the 14,000 prisoners the CIA holds in
its secret prisoners in various countries. The number is astounding.
I'm wondering if most are from Iraq and Afghanistan or if young men
have been disappearing from the streets of Muslim countries all over

Muslimah Convert [revert] to Islam exploited, Abused,
Abandoned by Qadiani ["Ahmadi"] Claiming to be Muslim
[With thanks to Br. Richard ]
Sis. Teresa Anne Latif lives in the town of Willow Grove, near
Philadelphia. She is asking the Muslim community for help so she
can file for divorce and also can get out of the clutches of her
non-Muslim mother who quotes Pat Robertson to her.
Sis. Teresa was tricked by a Pakistani Qadiani, Shaikh Abdul Latif,
who wanted to get his immigration "green card." He married her,
then started abusing her, then abandoned her. She was left with
nothing and was homeless for two years. Finally she came back to
her mother who, a staunch Christian, is pressuring her to go back
We have sent her an initial donation and are collecting Islamic
clothes for her. She needs hijabs, Islamic dresses and funds for
an attorney so she can file for divorce.
She says, the "Ahmadiyya" [Qadiani] community is sheltering her
oppressor. Here is an excerpt from her letter:
"I seek a job so that I can have a state legal divorce from Latif,
the guy the Pakistani Muslim man, my former spouse who beat me up,
abandoned me, left me homeless. Now, for two years I have lived
homeless, and the Ahmadiyyah Community to which my spouse belonged
and lied to me about saying he is Muslim protects him and help him,
and hide him so he can have US citizenship to live here. This
Community is going to masjid sending men and they pose as regular
Muslims and marry sisters and then abandoned them after they marry
them so that these men can have citizenship from Muslim women. This
is why I ended up back at my mother's home. She daily reminds me of
the failure of Islam and Muslims; some of her members have left her
church to marry Muslim men, and she does not want her members to
see that she has a daughter who is Muslim, as she preaches against
Islam on a regular basis. She recites what the Christian TV programs
( Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell] have to say on Islam. She has no
respect for the fact that that I seek to follow Allah in life and in
death, and has no respect for Muslims nor seeks to even listen to
the truths of Islam."
Readers interested in helping Sis. Teresa should write a check
in the name of Teresa Anne Latif and send it to Jamaat's
After talking to her, we explained to her that Qadianis are not
Muslims and were declared non-Muslims by the people, government
and parliament of Pakistan.
Lynne Stewart Facing 30 Year Sentence: This is too big a tragedy
On October 16, the famous attorney, Lynne Stewart, who defended the
blind Shaikh, Dr. Omar 'Abdel Rahman pro bono is facing a 30
year sentence for alleged "terrorist connections." She has asked the
court for mercy. In her letter to the judge, she reminds the judge
that her client, the blind Shaikh, and herself belong to the
pre-9.11 era. She says, the entire legal community, judges and
prosecutors, knew her so well that she never thought she would
ever be considered a security threat [!] to her beloved country.
All decent Americans are shocked at this shameful attempt to imprison
an attorney known for her fight for human rights. Much evil has
happened to innocent people in America but we could never have
believed that a well known attorney would be treated in this
Let's Re-Open the Case of Arab Muslim Woman Stabbed 33 times:
Can you help?
The Katrina disaster hid the tragedy of an Arab Muslim woman who
was murdered in December 2004. Iman Muhanna Muhammad was
stabbed 33 times and the police could not arrest anyone. She was
closely related to Dr. Abdulhalim Ashqar, the Palestinian leader
whom the U.S. government has been trying to persecute.
Why did the New Orleans police abandon all attempts to find the
murderer? Is a Muslim woman's life not valuable?
Please publicize this case to the maximum.
A $45,000 reward is being offered for tips leading to an arrest and
conviction in this case. If you, or anyone you know, has any
information about Iman Mohammed's murder, please contact Deputy
Chief Fred Williams of the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's office at
(540) 364-5390 or (504) 364-5300, or contact Crimestoppers at
(504) 822-111 or 1-877-903-STOP (7867). Callers do not have to
give their names or testify.
THOUGHT OF THE DAY!
OOPS! The cat is out of the bag!
Top Republican Senator Frist, from Tennessee, said while visiting
NATO troops in Afghanistan:
"Taliban is too strong and has too much popular support to be
defeated militarily" and should be brought into the Afghan
government. [FOX TV News, October 3, 2006]
Democratic Party leaders jumped on Frist for weakening the war on
"terror." Karzai of Kabul too showed serious concern. Democratic
Party leader Nancy Pelosi, one of the richest women in America,
claimed that Frist is trying to "coddle" the Taliban [!]. The
result: Frist, like a good politician, back pedaled and said that
he was not referring to the Taliban but to the tribal leaders who
should be brought into the government. Go figure!
Ramadan Message # 3: Be aware of Allah's Guidance in all
matters, ranging from physical purity and the direction of prayer
to politics, economics and social dialectics, from the timings for
the fast to the moves and tricks of the oppressors and exploiters,
from the lawfulness and quality of food to environmental concerns
and scientific advancement, from modesty in dress to effective
forms of communication, from child care and respect for the elderly
to support for the people of Kashmir, Chechnya, Palestine,
Afghanistan, Iraq and Sudan:
"This is the Book in which is Guidance sure, without doubt, for those
who are aware [muttaqeen]." [The Qur'an 2:2]
"O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed
for those before you so that you may become aware [tattaquun]
[through self-restraint]." [ 2:183]
Two important anniversaries. New Trend urges readers to remember.
However, it is not necessary to do it on the exact date because
that leads to the bid'ah [innovation] of anniversary celebrations:
1. September 22, 1979. Sayyid Abul 'Ala Maudoodi, the greatest
Islamic scholar of the 20th century C.E. passed away. He taught an
entire generation of western educated Muslims that Islam is a
COMPLETE WAY of LIFE, not a bunch of rituals. He faced the forces
of military dictatorship, sectarian religion and secular materialism
and gave them a resounding defeat through sheer scholarship and
self-sacrifice. The Islamic movement in Pakistan which has backed
America's agent General Musharraf into a corner THROUGH PEACEFUL
MEANS is a living tribute to Maudoodi's uncompromising but
rational interpretation of the Qur'an and the Hadith.
2. October 2, 1187. The crusaders in Jerusalem surrendered to the
armies of Islam led by Salahuddin Ayyubi [Saladin].
Inshallah, the time is not far when western occupation
terror forces known as "Israel" too will surrender and will be
shipped out of Palestine. The defeat of the Israeli offensive at
the hands of a small militia known as Hizbullah is a sign of
things to come.
A Negative Anniversary
September 29, 30, 1941. The holocaust industry claims that Hitler's
forces killed 33,771 Jews in the ravine of Babi Yar just
outside the city of Kiev in the Soviet Union. This tale of horrors,
publicized worldwide and the stuff of anti-German movies, has been
subjected to detailed analysis in a chapter of Germar Rudolf's book
Dissecting the Holocaust. Rudolf shows step by step that no
such massacre took place. The story was war time Soviet propaganda
which became a rallying cry for fundraising and pity by the
Jewish lobbies, he indicates. Rudolf is a scientist from Germany's
prestigious Max-Planck-Institute. Owing to Zionist control of
Germany, he lost his job. When he persisted in writing, he was
arrested for "thought crime" and is awaiting trial in Germany.
American Predators Targeting the very Young and Vulnerable:
Thoughts on the Amish Children Killed on October 2.
by Kaukab Siddique, Ph.D
"When the souls are sorted out, when the female buried alive is
questioned - for what crime she was killed..." [The Qur'an 81:7-9]
Oxford is a little town in southern Chester County, Pennsylvania,
off highway 1. The Amish people come into town once a week to sell
the vegetables they grow and the bread and cakes they bake, the
men, bearded and wiry, the women modestly dressed, with head
coverings. They are a peaceful people who do not use machinery
and do not bother anyone. I condoled with them there on October 3,
the day after a man named Charles Roberts, armed with a shotgun,
a rifle, a pistol and 600 rounds of ammo broke into one of their
schools and shot 10 girls, five of whom died.
One of the girls was related to the Amish man I talked to. He was
matter of fact about it, showing no emotion. I told him, I am from
Pakistan and the women in my country dress modestly, like the
Amish girls, and I feel as if this was an attack on my family.
He didn't know where Pakistan is located but his son told him that
it's "out in the east." We talked for a while and he told me how to
reach the site of the murders, about 15 miles inland on route 896.
I plan to take some donations to the families of the victims.
Roberts went after young girls. On October 2, when he entered the
one room school, he kicked out the grown women and boys and kept
the little girls. [The teacher escaped.] He barricaded the door,
blocked the windows and put hooks on the walls. He then taped and
wired the legs of the 10 little girls. It is estimated that he
wanted to rape the children and hang them on the hooks [somewhat
like sheep carcasses are hung for sale in Pakistani markets].
The teacher who had escaped called the police. Within minutes the
police were there. Roberts then shot the 10 children and killed
himself. Three of the girls died on the spot, three died in hospital
and the remaining four are in bad shape.
This targeting of young women, little girls and children in general,
has become a countrywide phenomenon. Schools are the easiest to hit.
On September 27, a 53 year old man, Duane Morrison, took six girls
hostage at a high School located in a small town called Bailey in
Colorado. He raped the girls. When police arrived, he used the
girls as human shields and held off the police for hours. Finally
he killed one of the girls and himself.
At the adult level, men in the U.S. batter more than FOUR MILLION
WOMEN every year badly enough to force them to take refuge in
shelters and homes.
Do relatively independent women, strong women, escape this male
activity? The answer is: NO. During the last one year, 80 military
recruiters were disciplined for sexual misconduct, including rape.
[CNN September 30]
[Usually unreported cases are estimated at three times those that are reported.]
Does America have a solution for the problems caused by the
predatory male? Again the answer is: NO. "Solutions" entirely
focus on "more security" and psychological studies of the
perpetrators. On the very day of the Amish murders, the media
were coming up with excuses for the behavior of the murderer.
America is unable to grasp the underlying issue, that its social
context is disintegrating and that its social fabric has been torn
apart. Women are not respected, by and large, in this country.
Corporate greed, consumerism, entertainment groups, anti-religious
lobbies have undermined the sense of decency and modesty. Secular
education, widespread adultery and fornication, organized
homosexuality, sexual deviations without borders, multi-million
dollar pornography, "children-as-sexual objects" have worked
together to create a social atmosphere where growing numbers
of people have no idea as to what is right and what is wrong.
One may meet men like Charles Roberts and Duane Morrison and
never know that they plan to rape female children. They look
so "normal" and so "American." The "normal" American can turn
out to be a criminal thinking up atrocities in peace time which
elsewhere would be considered extreme even in war time.
News Alert: by our Media Monitor
Sudan Facing Worldwide Zionist Media Blitz: Independent Islamic State is Intolerable.
Bush and Blair Want UN Military Intervention Followed by NATO Action
New Trend's media monitors note that a huge smear campaign is
underway against Sudan on a worldwide scale, orchestrated by
the Zionist media. In Britain, both the ruling party and the
Conservative party have made Darfur a rallying cry for the new
crusade. In the U.S., the Zionist media are beating the drums
of war, alleging "genocide" in Sudan's Darfur region and trying
to relate it to Hitler's alleged "holocaust" against the Jews.
CNN's Anderson Cooper, whose Zionist links were uncovered by none
other President Ahmedinejad of Iran, has been on a DAILY campaign
[October 2 to 5] to make Sudan a dirty word, bringing up pictures
of women allegedly raped in Congo and then trying to say that
similar atrocities are taking place in Darfur. Cooper unblushingly
ignored the atrocities against women right here in America while
shedding crocodile tears for Africa.
New Trend's analysts say, Sudan's Darfur is a diversion being
created by the Zionists to cover up the colossal suffering
imposed on Lebanon by Israel and the military campaigns being
used to crush the uprising of the peoples of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Sudan keeps asking: Why are you [Israel and the U.S.] arming the
rebels in Darfur? Why are you using the suffering, poverty and
internal divisions of the Darfur people to try to destroy the
unity of Sudan? In the final analysis, Sudan will have to fight
invading forces. All of Africa should support Sudan.
SOMALIA: CNN's Anderson Cooper Simply Ignores the Islamic Reality
New Trend report
On September 25, Islamic forces entered the southern city of Kismayo
in triumph. This victory march to Kismayo, 165 miles from Mogadishu,
routed the U.S. supported warlords with little or no fighting. Now,
the U.S./U.N. appointed "government" exists only in the city of
Boadoa to the north, defended by hated Ethiopian troops.
Most of Somalia is now under the banners of Islam, at peace, with
justice available to even the poorest Somali. Basic services are
gradually being restored. The mosques are re-opening. Think of CNN
days of glory when this shameless Zionist propaganda outlet used
to drool over the pictures of dying Somali children with flies
swarming over their faces? Remember "Black Hawk Down" when the
U.S. military power went in and slaughtered 2,000 Somalis and then
cried for years over about two dozen U.S. troops killed by the
Somalis? Wire services at that time reported Somali women at prayer
were shot during prayers by U.S. troops, and the U.S. military
claimed they had to be killed because they were "human shields"
for the Somali fighters. [That's the "big lie" technique: Somalis
using their own wives and daughters as "human shields!" Compare to
the Israeli claims that Lebanese civilians had to be killed because
Hizbullah were hiding among them. The diabolical Jewish mind at work!]
Is it a wonder that Anderson Cooper is not covering Somalia but is
busy fabricating stories about Sudan?
Iraq: New Trend reports from U.S. sources
Islamic Forces Launch Ramadan Offensive:
U.S. Generals Reveal Massive War Crimes Against Iraqis and the
Intensity of the "Insurrection."
[Words in quotation marks are the exact words of the persons referred to.]
Bob Woodward's book State of Denial has put a big dent in the
Bush administration's claims of success in Iraq. In an interview
about the book, he said that the U.S. is facing 800 to 900 attacks
a WEEK from the Sunni Jihad forces ["terrorists"] in Iraq.
He may well be correct because the Pentagon/CNN is reporting that
in addition to the 12 American troops killed in the first couple
of days in Ramadan, another 23 have been killed from October 1 to
October 5, bringing the total U.S. troops killed [official figure]
to 2733 and the number wounded to above 25,000. The new Al-Qaidah
leader Abu Ayyub al-Masri [the Egyptian]seems to have mobilized
and organized the jihad forces which in June suffered a blow with
the killing of Abu Mus'ab Al-Zarqawi.
U.S. troops are the most heavily armed and most heavily protected
military forces in the world. For guerrilla forces to kill even one
such soldier is extraordinary, our analysts say.
Another report on the wire services reveals that actual U.S. losses
may be much higher. It indicates that more than 600 U.S.
"contractors" have been killed by the Jihad forces and more than
1,000 wounded [in addition to regular U.S. troops]. These are
armed men trained to carry out transportation, supply and support
activities for U.S. troops and are among the most highly paid men
in Iraq. Truck drivers from Bangladesh, India and a number of other
countries working for the U.S. have also been killed.
On the other side, U.S. generals and officers who have served in
Iraq are bringing out the massive war crimes being committed by
the U.S. in its attempts to crush the Islamic uprising. On
September 25, 2006 Major General John Batiste [retired] who
commanded the First Infantry Division in Iraq during 2004-2006
testified that the U.S. "killed huge numbers" of Iraqi civilians
in its attempts to crush resistance. In addition, he said, we put
"huge numbers of Iraqis in Abu Ghraib" prison on suspicion of
support for the jihad. U.S. forces have been breaking at random
into Iraqi Muslim homes. As General Batiste put it, the U.S. has
been "doing unconscionable things" in Iraq.
These attempts to crush the Islamic forces have not only been a
failure but backfired to such an extent that the "insurgency grew
What about the "democratic government" Bush says has been installed
in Iraq? The General's reply: It's a total failure. "There is no
rule of law" in Iraq, he concluded.
At the same hearing, Col. Thomas Hammes, who retired from the
marines serving in Iraq, said that there is no possibility of
crushing the Islamic resistance in Iraq. "We'll be there for 10
years" if we want to do so, he said. He reported that the Iraqi
resistance is affecting and inspiring Islamic people around the
globe. During the last year, he said, "150 European [Muslims]
traveled to Iraq to train and went back" to their home countries.
During an October 5 discussion on National Public Radio [NPR] a
military eyewitness from Iraq [whose name we missed] discussed the
slaughter of 21 Iraqi civilians [including women and children] by
U.S. forces in the Sunni city of Haditha. The witness said
that killing of Iraqi civilians is nothing unusual and is part of
the war. He said that a month before the Haditha massacre, U.S.
forces noticed "insurgents" going into a house and simply called
in an air strike which dropped a 500 pound bomb on the home
killing everyone inside including women and children.
Letter: Re: The Ongoing Saga of Islam Hater Glenn Beck:
This is the way to go
As Salaamu Alaikum,
The Glenn Beck Show is owned by Premiere Radio Network which is
owned by Clear Channel Communications. To maximized the effect of
protest against his remarks, the owners of the companies that
produce the Glenn Beck Show need to be notified.
A similar comment was made a year ago by another radio personality
who's show was owned by ABC who is owned by Disney. After Disney
was contacted the person was fired.
Clear Channel Communications is a publicly traded company on the
NYSE with world wide holdings. Premiere Radio Network also produces
a show with Jessie Jackson (civil rights leader) and Casey Kasem
(a person of Lebanese decent). These contacts may prove
Clear Channel has been sued several times which led to policy changes,
so they are not closed to listening, yet.
Check out the corporate information on Clear Channel and Premiere.
A campaign of protest to these two entities may prove most effective.

ISNA's FITNAH: But Wasn't Moon Sighted on September 22?
We are not in disagreement about the fitna created by ISNA. However,
to say that the moon was not sighted on the 22 is not an accurate
statement. The moon was sighted in the Houston area and in Denton
Texas. We have not announced that Saturday was the first day of
Ramadan until we verified with the person who sighted the crescent
and confirmed it with the astronomical data that the moon sets 8
minutes after the sun set in Houston on the 22 of September. It
will be a disservice to negate possible sightings and to the
credibility of those who strive very hard to follow the Sunnah.
If your group did not sight the moon in Brownsville Texas, it does
not make it impossible for people in Houston and Denton Texas to

Ed. Note: We respect Br. Boutrid and others who did try to get moon
sighting. This is very different from ISNA's shameful attempt
[which failed] to deny the Sunnah of Muhammad, pbuh. However, we asked
Dr. Omar Afzal, the foremost expert on this matter, about the alleged
sightings. His detailed reply can be sent to those interested. His
brief reply is as follows.
I have attached a longer version on why Sep. 22 Shahadah was
The short answer is that if a moon was really seen at the two places
in TX, there was no valid reason it could not be seen in towns
located west of TX in Arizona, and California.
Even next day a moon was not seen from Australia to Pakistan and
Iran. Obviously, whatever the witnesses saw in TX was NOT RAMADAN Hilal.
