The "Holocaust Denial" conference in Tehran, December 11 and 12,
ripped a hole in the iron curtain of censorship which international
Jewish elites had imposed on the vast money making venture funding
the terrorist entity known as "Israel." The media again played a
dirty role in NOT REPORTING the conference presentations. Instead
the media published the condemnations of the conference from known
enemies of Islam and oppressed humanity such as Bush, Blair,
Germany's Markel, Israel's Olmert and the Pope [lining up on the
Zionist side]. The media completely censored the 67 scholars who
went to Tehran and instead focused on David Duke, a supporter of
Palestine who has a past which the media "love."
New Trend congratulates President Ahmedinejad for this superb
blow against censorship. He has taught a good lesson to those who
made cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, and claimed that it was
"freedom of expression!" The Pope has still not apologized for
insulting the Prophet, pbuh. He loves Israel although Jewish
terrorists attacked the holiest church of Christianity.

Survey: Top Ten Idiots of the Year 2006
As the year draws to a close, New Trend plans to publish a list of
TOP TEN IDIOTS of the year. The idea came from Imam Badi Ali of
North Carolina. Br. Ali says that the world has been such a mess
during 2006, it will be suitable to publish a list of the top 10
idiots, instead of the best ten people.
Please help us to choose the ten. If you can't think of ten, help us
with the top 3 to 5.

Personal from Kaukab Siddique:
Are you a sugar baby? Most of us, from Asia and Africa, as
well as many from other continents, face a serious problem, especially
if we are in our 50's and 60's: It's the problem posed by our intake
of sugar. In America, avoidance of sugar is almost impossible and
with it comes the danger of increasingly bad health and diabetes.
It doesn't help to fast or walk: at the end of the day, we go back
to sugar and more sugar, be it in cakes and candy, or in coffee,
milk, chocolate, ice cream, juice or bread. Even an hour long walk
can be cancelled out by a few slices of bread with peanut butter
or chocolate spread. Our masjids offer the richest food during
Ramadan in an endless string of "iftar parties."
I was warned of this great sweet danger and "saved" by the grace
of Allah by my daughter Nadrat, whom I now call "Hakim Nadrat." She
cut off my refined sugar intake 100%. The issue was: How would I
survive if I stopped "cold turkey?" The desire for the "sugar rush"
is in fact a kind of addiction. Nadrat came up with a solution
which though now well known was first taught by the Prophet
Muhammad, pbuh. The way is to eat DATES whenever you feel the
desire for sugar. The dates too have sugar but, Nadrat pointed
out, it is natural sugar, unrefined, and is absorbed slowly. Most
importantly, the dates gradually take away the desire for refined
sugars which is part of our lives.
I am beginning to understand why the Prophet, pbuh, never got sick
though he was a human being, not a mythic figure. We can't be as strong
as him, but we can at least have him as our role model. On special
occasions, he ate meat: he loved sweets, especially honey, but what
was his regular life style? It was always dates, vegetables, whole
grains and water. Here it is in authentic Hadith:
"We are the family of Muhammad in whose home the cooking fire was
not lighted for entire months at a time: We lived on dates and
water." ['Ayesha, r.a., Hadith in Tirmidhi's Shamail.]
"The Prophet, peace be on him, used to eat a cantaloupe slice with
a date." [From 'Ayesha, r.a., Hadith in Tirmidhi's Sunan.]
"The Prophet, pbuh, ate cucumber with a soft date." [Narrated by
Abdullah ibn Ja'afar, Sunan of Tirmidhi.]
My comment: Note the opposites, the "strong" date and the "gentle"
The Prophet, pbuh, thought that a quantity of dates would keep a
person out of behavior problems, as in this Hadith:
"The messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be on him,
said that if a person eats seven large/soft dates in the morning,
all day long no poison or spell will affect him." [Hadith in the
Sahih of Bukhari, narrated by Amir bin Sa'ad.]
Another Hadith teaches that we should eat ONE date at a time and
not gobble them up. Thus the full chewing process comes into effect.
Hard dates too are recommended because they require extensive chewing.
Finally, the Prophet, pbuh, gave a simile to very young people which
they would remember. He compared a good Muslim to a date tree which
is a blessing for humans, for birds and for the environment:
"There is a tree which is like a Muslim. It is the date tree."
[Narrated by Ibn Umar, r.a., in the Sahih of Bukhari.]

Sometimes the Best people Need Help: Dr. Alauddin Shabazz:
A brilliant star of Islam
Imam Alauddin Shabazz of Chicago, Illinois is one of the few
outstanding people who helped me to understand America, Black
America in particular. A Ph.D in comparative religion, his thoughts
on Christianity and Islam and his insights into the Nation of
Islam's (NOI) and Minister Farrakhan's development kept me ahead
of the curve. Dr. Shabazz received honorable mention in the most
important book on Islam in America titled Islam and the Search
for African-American Nationhood by Dennis Walker, among other
books. Inshallah, he will receive his reward in the Hereafter.
Let's help him at this testing time when his family is facing
severe financial pressure.
Here is an introductory note about our learned brother for those
who might not know him:
Imam Alauddin Shabazz is a Muslim scholar,author, journalist and
bookstore owner residing in Chicago, IL. A native of Pensacola, FL,
he took Shahadah in Detroit, MI in 1959 as a member of the
Muslim Brotherhood. Since his acceptance of Al-Islam, he has been
a staunch champion of the Deen through the use of his
verbal skills and pen. He has authored 5 books including
Stand Up for Truth, Homosexuality 911,
Truth or Consequences, The Plain Truth About the Birth
of Jesus According to the Bible, and (The Truth About)
Holidays, Symbolism, Myths and Signs. The latter is to be
released as a new edition in early spring 2007. He has been a
regular contributor to New Trend, Al-Balagh, Muslim Journal and
Final Call newspapers. Imam Shabazz has also contributed to and
been quoted in numerous other articles, journal and books.
In April 2006 he suffered a serious stroke while driving and
sustained multiple injuries. He is recovering at home, with
Allah's help. Because of the mounting financial obligations
for his care, a special fund has been established to assist
him. Anyone wanting to make a contribution can do so.
The name of the fund is the "Angelo Alauddin Shabazz Fund." It has
been set up through Great Lakes Bank, 13057 S. Western Avenue,
Blue Island, IL 60406. Deposits can be made to Account # 06300001390.

Outreach: Why is Imam Umar important? +Demands of U.S. Muslims
Newark, Delaware, December 8, 2006: After Juma' salat at
the local Islamic Center, Jamaat distributed two items.
1. A two-sided card about Imam Warith Deen Umar's struggle
against U.S. state terrorism was given to 100 Muslims. Imam Umar
faced abuse from the Zionist-Capitalist Wall Street Journal
after which his job connections were cut off owing to comments by
Senator Schumer and others. Then the U.S. government trashed his
apartment in the Bronx, and finally the regime's storm troopers
entered his family home with dogs. The Imam stood firm. The
regime failed in both its aims, to intimidate him or to provoke him.
2. The 8-point demands of the Muslims of America offered by the
National Shoora of Jamaat al-Muslimeen which met in Milwaukee were
distributed to 138 Muslims. The demands include condemnation of
the culture of drugs, crime and prostitution which is being
propagated by the U.S. media. [The back of the flyer provides
addresses where readers can write or call to urge the U.S.
government to stop denying imprisoned Islamic scholar
Ahmed 'Abdel Sattar
contact with his family.]
Most of the people at the Newark Islamic Center were Indo-Pakistanis,
60% and Arabs, about 40%, with a sprinkling of African-Americans.
[Thanks for the distribution go to a new brother in the Jamaat,
Br. Aqeel, from Philadelphia, who stood with us in 22 degree
weather to reach the Muslims.]
50 Shots: The Police Murder of Sean Bell:
From New York to Palestine, One Occupation
by Sis. Aisha
Jamaat al-Muslimeen New York City [Manhattan]
On 12/6/2006, the December 12th Movement held a rally at 1 Police
Plaza in New York City which, began at 4:30pm. The rally was
protesting the murder of Sean Bell and the shooting of his two
friends, Joseph Guzman and Trent Benefield. All three were
unarmed and trying to flee what they believed to be a possible
It is against the law to shoot into a vehicle.
A.N.W.S.E.R. was also present, as usual, as well as the New Black
Panther Party. Another presence was the Bloods and the Crips Gang
throwing up gang signs at the cops and walking side by side. Many
were wearing both blue and red bandannas wrapped together on their
heads to show their unity. As one gang member put it, "We're sick
of this sh*t!".
Some of the chants as we marched around the block were: "Occupation
is a crime from New York to Palestine" and NYPD off our streets.
No justice, no peace!".
The protest organizers want everyone to boycott white-owned
businesses for 50 days, one day for each bullet fired, beginning
on December 22, 2006. That day at 12 noon, there will be another
protest . The starting point will be Chase Bank at Fulton street.
The goal is to boycott Wall Street. Someone suggested that it might
be better to encourage a boycott of Macy's and other businesses at
I agree. I love to hear that so many people have come out to
support the family and express disgust with police brutality
however, a more specific plan needs to be established. Why not
make an example out of Macy's this spending season?
Removing Commissioner Raymond Kelly and Police Captain Anthony Izzo
would be a good start but just as Malcolm X stated, it's a system
of oppression and removing a few figure heads will not end it.
There's a lot of anger and a lot of hopelessness.
One of the other chants at the march was, "They (police) say get
back, we (the people) say shoot back!". People are really getting
fed up with the uncle Tom Foolery of our politicians and want
significant changes made. Something is brewing and I pray for
some positive change.
2nd Report on the anti-Police-Murder Rally by 3,000 People in New York
by Br. Abu Talib
Jamaat al-Muslimeen, Brooklyn
This is a report on the rally and demonstration at one Police Plaza
against Police Brutality and the latest killing of an unarmed
23-years old black man. This demonstration and rally was called
by the Dec 12th Movement and the Black Men's Movement. The rally
was very spirited and militant.
There were only a few speakers at the rally as this was not the
celebrity type of rally. This was the people's movement by those
who are involved in the liberation of the people from oppression
and for human Rights. The leaders of the Dec12th Movement spoke
briefly. Sister Viola Plummer set the agenda and demanded that
the people must speak in one voice to the demand that the Police
Commissioner Raymond Kelly must resign and also Tony Izzos resign
who controls this undercover death squad in the Police department.
The crowd had signs of "50 shots" and the "NYPD guilty of murder" and
the chants were "whose streets? our streets!" and "black Power!"
The crowd was large , about three thousand people out at the rally
and demonstration who were from the African American Communities
and some from the latino and also from the white who are Progressives.
The only people missing were from the Muslim Community. There were
few brothers at this rally, some were from Masjid Tawqa, but we did
not see the so-called leadership ["Siraj Wahaj, etc] that exist in
New York City.
The duty of the Muslims is to fight injustice wherever it is and to
support the oppressed. There is killing of the innocent and murder
of Sean Bell. We should be standing up to the oppressors who are
killing our children and grandmothers and we are silent on this
issue of Police Brutality in the city of New York and Nationally
inside the United States.
The foreign Policy of the government is to contain and kill by the
soldiers in the army overseas. Its the same in the domestic Policy
to contain and murder the oppressed in the various community here
at home by the Police. It's all linked together and we must make
the connection so we can see clearly the big picture.
Out of this rally some of the people are calling for a boycott
for 50 days for the 50 shots of all stores except black stores
and boycott of this racist Paper the New York Post.
Also the day of Outrage will be on the 22nd of this month to shut
down Wall street where the businesses controls the Police
Department and demand that the Police Commissioner Raymond
Kelly step down because the policies to shoot to kill come from
the top of the Police department.
The struggle continues. Until the oppressed fight the oppressor,
and not the oppressed fighting the oppressed, we will see more
killing or murder by the Police. We have to move from mobilization
to organization in the black Community to solve our problems.
May Allah grants us victory in our battle against the forces of
evil. The good will prevail, inshallah.
Letter: Re: Bangladeshi Professor ... Taking Exception to
Comment on America's "Fetid Soul."
How can you honestly say that this horrendous act against Dr. Ali
Reza was a "bestial act from the fetid soul of America" when such
things happen in all countries of the world on a regular basis?
If you hate this place so much why are you here? Have you never
heard of the Hatthora Gang in Pakistan who went around bashing in
the skulls of people as they slept in Rawalpindi?
If the presence of criminals in a country is evidence of a
"fetid soul", no human nation, Muslim or otherwise, is anything
but possessed of a "fetid soul". Right now in Iraq, Shi'is are
dousing Sunnis in kerosene and burning them alive just like
Hindus and Sikhs used to kill Muslims during Partition. Does
this mean that Iraq also has a "fetid soul"?
Such shrill statements only serve to diminish the credibility of
your otherwise very valid criticisms of Zionism and racism in general.

Letter: Re: "Imam" or Renegade? New Trend Comment is too harsh.
The two paragraphs below cause me great frustration.
I fail to see how the man can be called a renegade on
the basis of the [see below] paragraph. At the very
least you did not give any proof. Me thinks you went
overboard in your animosity with CAIR and attempted to
paint anyone who works with CAIR as a renegade. I
think this is unfortunate, counterproductive and more
Your brother in Islam,
Editor's note: Dear Br. Saad: note three strikes: Police, FBI,
Marines, and the man is proud of it. Should we wait for him to go
to Guantanamo Bay and torture the Islamic prisoners? Let the
readers decide. Here are "imam" Shahin's own words:
"And, if you go back to our background, I am
personally the chairperson for the police advisory
board. I did presentation for the FBI agent in
Phoenix. I did presentation with CAIR-Arizona to Yuma
Air Force Base for more than 600 Marines."

Our Government is Kidnapping Children!!!
by Nev Moore
--- PROBLEM STATEMENT ---
I. State and federally funded Child Protective Service agencies
are arbitrarily seizing children from non-abusive homes in the
absence of evidence or realistic cause to believe that the child
is in danger of harm, and in gross violation of their own protocols,
state and federal regulations, and the Constitution of the United States.
II. For both parent and child there can be nothing in our life
experience more devastating than the abrupt, brutal, and
unwarranted enforced separation by strangers. The parent-child
bond is our strongest instinct, superseding all else. To have
this bond abruptly severed by strangers who possess unhindered
power, and who give no thought or consideration to the fear,
anxiety, and trauma that their actions cause, is a crime against
humanity. Yet it is happening to 4600 American children per day,
right here in the United States. Small children believe their
parents to be all-powerful, like super heroes. They believe that
their parents possess an all-powerful ability to shelter and
protect them from any threat. When parents are powerless to
prevent strangers from abducting the child from all that is safe
and familiar to him/her, a fundamental belief system within the
child is broken forever, along with the child's ability to feel
safe and secure in their world. As parents are forced to sit by
placidly, under the threat of never seeing their child again, a
small child may believe that the parents gave him/her away
because he or she was "bad", and the child's belief in their
parents love is also destroyed. In a small child's mind he or
she will be thinking: "Why aren't mom and dad fighting the bad
guys and taking me home?" We have received many phone calls from
parents who have been devastated when their child screams at them:
"You LET them TAKE ME away!" This is an act of emotional and
psychological terrorism against a child.
III. The law states that a child can only be removed from his or
her home as a last resort, and only when the child is at imminent
risk of serious harm. The problem is that the SS (social services)
does not follow established law & policy, and nobody makes them.
They face no consequences for appalling and illegal behavior. The
police must submit to the whims of the SS. Judges go along with the
SS, allowing them to control court process, rather than fulfilling
their judicial canons by insisting that due process is followed,
laws adhered to, and that procedural error is not tolerated. Few
parents are criminally charged with anything, rather, they are
subjected to a highly irregular "civil" proceeding that makes a
complete mockery of our judicial system. Parents are often told
they may not speak or present exculpatory evidence.
Children are not allowed to be present or express their wishes if
they want to go home. The SS claims that this would "involve the
child in adult issues" and "traumatize them". However, the instant
a child says they want to be adopted, the SS runs them into the
courtroom, stating that they must "honor the child's wishes."
IV. Federal statistics say that there are approximately 3 million
reports of suspected child abuse and neglect each year. The U.S.
Department of Health & Human Services documents 900,000 as
"substantiated", leaving over 2 million families per year
falsely accused of child maltreatment! Of the "substantiated"
cases, 68% do NOT involve child maltreatment, according to the
federal authorities. This figure is escalating at an alarming
rate each year as over zealous reporting and frivolous intervention
by the SS spins out of control.
V. Actual acts of child abuse or severe neglect are not the
primary allegations used to seize children from their families.
Meaning deliberate acts, willfully committed with the intent to
harm - contrary to public assumption. The SS employs a method
known as the "Clinical Model", in which the behaviors of the
child are use to claim that there is some sort of obscure
psychological abuse in the home that has traumatized the child.
Therefore, if your child exhibits any normal, predictable behavior
outgoing, quite, active, shy, placid, disobedient, obedient, neat,
messy, loud, easy going, or temperamental -
any behavior will be used to "prove" that the child is "acting out
their inability to verbalize the trauma." NOTHING is just plain
normal predictable, unpredictable human behavior as it has
existed for 3 million years. EVERYTHING has some deep, dark,
bizarre (and completely illogical..) "meaning", that can only
be seen by 23 year-old, childless, poorly educated social workers
with little life experience, and all of which supports the
prevailing political climate that ALL parents are inadequate
and abusive, so children must be raised by the state. Welcome
to "Junk Psychology For Dollars"!
VI. The state gains entryée' into private homes via the filing
of a report of suspected child maltreatment. A report may be filed
anonymously by anyone, a vindictive neighbor, a stranger who saw
you yell at your child at the grocery store, a disgruntled
employee, an ex-spouse, a teacher, a day care provider, someone
whose romantic interest you rejected, or any unstable busybody.
"Abuse" reports are filed (and investigated) for head lice (usually
contracted at school..), diaper rash, taking your child to the ER
too often, leaving your child in the car while you run into the
store, ear infections, not sending a snack or mittens to school,
parents arguing in front of child, home schooling, spanking; ANY
bruise, injury, or scrape inevitably incurred in the normal course
of childhood; poverty issues, dirty clothing, no electricity, ANY
"nudie" photos of toddlers playing in the sprinkler or in the tub.
A yeast or urinary tract infection is now likely to bring an
allegation of sexual abuse, although they are a common result
of antibiotic use, careless hygiene, or a diet high in simple
carbohydrates. Normal, innocent people do not tend to be
suspicious and defensive, so they usually cooperate when the
SS knocks on their door. We universally hear: "We have nothing
to hide, so we invited them in, served them coffee, and were
open and honest. Now our children are gone, and we don't know
how this could happen in this country!"
VII. Once the SS gains entree' the family is put under a powerful,
and distorted, microscope. "Social workers" will ask bizarre and
invasive questions. Do the parents ever argue? Do they ever raise
their voices? This is documented as "domestic violence." No surprise
here, the majority of the funding for domestic violence programs
is channeled through CPS. If parents deny domestic abuse or child
abuse, they are condescendingly told that they are "in denial",
and this is all "part of the syndrome." Admitting - confessing -
is one of the requirements. Truth is not important. Saying the
right things to keep federal funding flowing, is. You could be
asked, as could your child (even a three or four year-old) if you
have ever touched them in the chest or genital area. Obviously,
after bathing, wiping, applying ointment, etc., any parent must
answer "yes." Anyone who admits to having a drink occasionally
is labeled "alcoholic and dysfunctional." (Powerful, wealthy
politicians evidently have an exemption). Under the SS microscope
every word, inflection, and action is attributed with the most
distorted, bizarre, and ludicrous "meanings." If you have ever
bounced a check, you have a "criminal record"; if your child is
shy, they are "fearful and withdrawn"; if they are outgoing and
active, they are "acting out due to the trauma." This is crazy,
you say? Oh good, you're catching on now!
Once a child is seized by the state, the parents are offered a
sham civil court proceeding. In most cases the parents are never
actually charged with anything. In many states you must not only
be charged, but convicted of a crime to lose your drivers license.
But, you can lose your children from an anonymous 'phone call,
with NO involvement from law enforcement, and NO charges of Any
wrong-doing. The SS controls the courtroom and employs the tactic
of delay to keep families separated. Parents may go to scheduled
court dates 30 - 50 - 80 times, only to be told, after waiting in
the hall all day, that their case has been continued - yet again.
This can, and does, go on for months, and, even years, while
children are separated from their families. If parents actually
get inside the court room they are usually told they may not
speak - and usually their court appointed attorneys won't do
much speaking either. Exculpatory evidence is either not allowed,
or "disappears" from the case file.
VII. These cases degenerate into an exercise in character assassination
and slander by the SS where actual acts of child abuse or neglect that
place the child at "imminent risk of serious harm" are not even
discussed. Rather, vague, obscure, and distorted allegations about
the parents personalities comprise the bulk of the court room
testimony, including the parents "denial", "hostility", and
"uncooperativeness." Judges should be questioning - and striking
- such testimony based on relevance, but they don't. The SS rules
the court room and the judges simply abdicate their sworn oath and
go along. The new federal law gives the SS 15 months to seek
Termination of Parental Rights and have the child adopted out,
so, children are being put up for adoption based on the timeline,
even when parents have not had a chance to answer the initial
allegations, and in the absence of any evidence or charges that
they have harmed their child! Social workers routinely perjure
themselves under oath without ever facing admonishment (let
alone charges) from a judge. This system is a SCAM, and makes
a mockery of our most fundamentally held beliefs in our country.
VIII. These children are placed in state contracted foster homes
and institutions. All get federal benefits. Residential's and
institutions hold multi-million dollar contracts with the social
service agencies. Children are drugged, restrained, put in
straight-jackets (they call them "safety coats" now); they are
sexually, physically, and emotionally abused and tormented. Abuse
that is far, far more egregious than the initial allegations made
against the parents, and which would be prosecuted criminally were
it to occur anywhere else.
In 2000 Time magazine printed a special issue on foster
abuse and fatalities, calling it "America's shame." We've been
calling it that for years. Abuse reports against foster homes and
other SS contracted facilities is covered up. Police tell us that,
if they receive abuse reports concerning a foster home, they have
been directed to turn such reports back to the SS, so they
self-investigate - which means they throw the complaints
in the dumpster.
Why is this happening? One factor is unmonitored federal funding
($14. Billion per year). The other is a huge industry that is
providing private profit through Medicaid fraud. Service providers
(vendors) hold multi-million dollar contracts with the social
service agencies. The families are ordered to engage in "services"
with the contracted vendors, all of whom bill Medicaid at
astronomically inflated rates for "services" that are often
inappropriate, unnecessary, and completely irrelevant to the
families situation, or to child maltreatment.
Families are coerced into participating by intimidation and the
threat of losing their children. In return for the fraudulently
collected profits, the contracted vendors provide manufactured
"evidence" of child maltreatment to support the SS claim that
they need to keep the child in foster care. In return for this
they receive more federal funding.
As an example, the Massachusetts DSS receives $700. Million a year
in state funding alone. Not bad. Behind the money there is a
socialist ideology that children should be raised by the state.
Yes, even here in America. This agenda was promoted by people
like Dr. C. Henry Kempe in the 1970's. An open supporter of the
Communist party regime who instructed: "We must remove children
from the crude influence of their families and, frankly,
nationalize them." Dr. Kempe emphasized the need for a
"stealthy, incremental approach" to implementing the agenda
to make families obsolete.
This is a huge, complex, ugly picture. We don't want to believe it
can happen here in our beloved country. But it is.4600 times per
day. So I am impelled to reach out to EVERY sane, rational
American with a conscience to stand up and let your voice be
heard... before it's too late.
