PAKISTANI ISLAMIC WOMAN LEADER SPEAKS:
January 22: Jamaate Islami leader, Sis. Aisha Munawar, who was elected
to the National Assembly of Pakistan, told a press conference that the
new elections General Musharraf is planning have little chance of being
fair. She said, the country is being rent by the agony of lawlessness,
high prices and unemployment. The masses are trying to survive while
the rulers are planning "elections," she said.
She was speaking in Larkana, Sind province, which was the
stronghold of Ms. Benazir Bhutto.
Pakistani Islamist Opposes Musharraf's Talks with India
January 19: Hafiz Saeed, leader of Jamaat ad-Da'wa, criticized the plans
of General Musharraf to hold talks with India on Kashmir. Speaking to a
large gathering in Lahore, Hafiz Saeed said that such talks are futile
because they simply give India an opportunity to strengthen its military
occupation of Kashmir.
Jamaat ad-Da'wa is active in helping Kashmiri victims of the catastrophic
earthquake which struck Pakistan's northeast. On EID al-ADHA, ad-Da'wa
volunteers provided meals to more than 90,000 survivors of the quake.
Ad-Da'wa set up little "towns" in Pakistani Kashmir to shelter the
people during winter.

SOMALIA: New Air Attack. U.S. Troops land to identify Bodies
On January 24, 2007 the U.S. media announced that a U.S. gunship carried
out a new air raid in southern Somalia in an attempt to kill a middle
level Islamic leader. U.S. troops landed in the area after the raid to
identify bodies. The leader was not among those killed but is reported
arrested in a separate incident by Ethiopian troops.
The British paper Guardian reported that in the first U.S. attack
aimed at top Somali Islamic leaders earlier in the month, which failed,
80 [EIGHTY] Somali bedouins were killed while they were watering
their animals. [NT observers say, U.S. policy seems to be to kill
everyone in an area where a "suspect" is spotted.]
IRAQ: Apaches Firing Missiles in CENTRAL BAGHDAD
January 24, 2007: An all day battle raged back and forth on Haifa street
in Central Baghdad. CNN reports that a missile was used to destroy a
strong building which would not give way to heavy machine gun fire.
Heavily armed U.S. forces backed by Shi'ite troops trained by the U.S.
are involved in this solidly Sunni area which supports the resistance.
Meanwhile, more than 600 Mahdi Militia of Moqtada al-Sadr have been
"arrested" without a shot being fired. It appears that these arrests
are a charade and the men will be released later.
January 23: The resistance brought down a helicopter over south western
Baghdad carrying armed American contractors, all 5 of whom were killed
in the incident. A U.S. report says they were killed after the copter
Meanwhile, Ayman al-Zawahiri, number two leader of the armed
Islamic organization known as al-Qaidah, issued a video to challenging
President Bush to send all his troops to Iraq. Al-Zawahiri thinks the
Islamic forces are winning. Al-Qaidah announced an Islamic State in
In his STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS, President Bush placed al-Qaidah as the
number one enemy, followed by Hizbullah as number 2. This time he did
not blame Iran and only referred to Iran's nuclear projects as the
problem. He no longer refers to Iran as "evil." The President seems
to be playing into al-Qaidah's hands by pumping new armadas
AFGHANISTAN: Taliban to set up schools in Liberated Areas
January 22, 2007: The Taliban leadership announced that it will open
schools in SIX PROVINCES of Afghanistan this spring. The first schools
will be for boys, followed by a second series of schools for girls.
Till now the Taliban have not been able to open schools because Islamic
schools are seen as fair targets of air strikes by the U.S.
The "Education Minister" of the U.S. installed regime in Kabul responded
strongly to the Taliban announcement. He said that the Taliban do not
control any territory. He accused the Taliban of burning down schools
and denying education to women. [Reporters from Pakistan as well as U.S.
sources admit that vast areas of southwestern, southern and
southeastern Afghanistan are in Taliban hands. NATO's offensive
has come to a stop.]

Mass Rally in Bangalore, India Condemns Execution of
President Saddam Hussein [Shaheed]
January 20, 2007: More than 200,000 Indian Muslims rallied in the
ShivRaji area of Bangalore, India to condemn the murder of the
mujahid President of Iraq Saddam Hussein. This was the biggest
rally of Indian Muslims in recent years and was called by a political
leader C. K. Ja'afar Sharif. Many of the demonstrators were carrying
pictures of Saddam. The crowd vociferously chanted slogans against
U.S. President George Bush.
Clashes with Hindus began when the protestors called on Hindus to close
their shops. The police then dispersed the crowd with gunfire into the
air. The huge crowd responded with stones which injured several
policemen. [Reported by the BBC and Pakistani newspaper Khabrain.]

him "Saudi" Arabia's highest award. The King and the General are

THOUGHT of the DAY: ISRAELIS and WOMEN
The rot in Israel is from top to bottom. Moshe Katsev, the President of
the terror entity is being charged with rape committed against his OWN
female staff. It took more than a year for the charge to be brought
after TEN women accused him over a period of time.
Israel is a free fire zone as far as sex and the exploitation of women
is concerned. Tel Aviv is reported to have more BROTHELS than any other
city in the world. Every years thousands of women are brought from
Eastern Europe and Russia with promises of a new life and then end up
being prostitutes for the "Chosen People."
Perhaps Muslims should cherish their bad guys like Abdullah and
Musharraf. These men wouldn't last a day if allegations of rape were
whispered about them. Our tyrants are solid family men.
ISNA VP Working with U.S. Info & FBI
New Trend Special Report by Kaukab Siddique, Ph.D
Imam Mohammed Magid's Visit to the Holocaust Museum:
Lack of Knowledge Combined with a Strong Desire to Recognize
Israel and Honor the Zionist Power Structure
In Sterling, Virginia, near Dulles Airport on the west side of
Washington, DC, the $5 million ADAMS Center attracts the "brain
drain" of the Muslim world, Indian, Pakistani and Arab Muslims who
want to understand Islam and worship Allah Almighty. A good Muslim
leader, even an average person, could have turned this Islamic Center
into a source of blessing for the entire area.
Instead of blessings, the ADAMS Center reeks of the humiliation of
Muslims trying to please their oppressors and striving to degrade
themselves to fit into the Rand Corporation's program for an "American
Islam" cut off from the aspirations of the Islamic Ummah both
globally and nationally. How did this increasingly subservient
community reach a low point of degradation? Let's begin with a
On December 21, 2006 Magid, the Imam of the ADAMS Center, Vice President
of ISNA [the so-called Islamic Society of North America] visited the
Jewish Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, along with Prof. Akbar Ahmed,
a close friend of the father of Wall Street journalist Daniel Pearl
who was killed by Islamists in Pakistan following the U.S. attack on
Afghanistan. CAIR was represented on this visit along with three
"holocaust survivors." [As David Irving pointed out in a speech,
a "holocaust survivor" is a euphemism for a Jewish person who was not
hurt during the World War in which millions, including German civilians,
It appears that ISNA's Vice President Imam Magid is quite unaware of the
realities of the Holocaust story. Here are a few facts which no one can
deny but which probably Imam Magid is unaware of:
What does Imam Magid know about the Holocaust story? Evidently nothing.
He is NOT a SCHOLAR either of Islam or of the Second World War. He and
Akbar Ahmed seemingly went to the Museum to counter the Iranian
President Ahmedinejad's call for an open conference on the
Holocaust where all the information which has been censored would
The Second World War ended in 1945, about 62 years back. Germany has
paid reparations to Israel in the billions of dollars for the suffering
of the Jews.
The war in Palestine, pre-1948 to today, continues. The Jews have
occupied Palestine by military force, committed genocide against the
occupied people and continue to commit atrocities on a daily basis.
Did the "Holocaust" really happen as the Jews claim it did, with Six
Million Jews killed, more than a million allegedly in gas chambers?
The story has been undermined by in-depth research carried out by
revisionist historians. Anyone who has studied the revisionist
research would take the Jewish claims with great caution and would
ask for both sides to be heard.
Instead of open discussion of the holocaust story, the elite Jewish
organizations have clamped censorship on scholarship.
Owing to the power of International Jewry and the Zionist influence in
Europe, critics of the Holocaust story are subject to arrest. Those
arrested and subjected to prison, shackles and chains, include the
great historian David Irving, a distinguished German scientist
Germar Rudolf, and an outstanding Canadian-German polemicist
Ernst Zundel. Others have lost their jobs. In one case a Ph.D
dissertation was dumped after having been accepted. In the United
States, the corporate media keep distinguished revisionists like
Mark Weber and Arthur Butz cut off from the public while
the Jewish-Zionist viewpoint is presented as an integral part of
media programming literally on a daily basis.
Within that context of MEDIA MONOPOLY, CENSORSHIP, PHYSICAL COERCION and
ARRESTS, the elite Jewish lobby erected the Holocaust Museum in
Washington, DC, backed by tax payer's funds. The Museum denies the
humanity of the GERMAN people and has censored the fact that MORE
GERMAN CIVILIANS were killed and raped by the allies than Jews were
by the Germans.
No museums have been set up about 400 years of slavery which
depopulated Africa and the extermination of numerous Native
Does Imam Magid have the right to make a political gesture to oppose
the Iranian initiative? He would have the right if he were a
politically open person. At his mosque, he keeps a tight lid on
policies critical of the U.S. government. He opposes views which
would condemn American atrocities against the Muslim world. There
is no indication of him, or of Prof. Akbar Ahmed, friend of Rabbis
and a regular mourner over Daniel Pearl, visiting the sites of the
destruction of Kandahar [Afghanistan], or of the bombing of Afghan
mosques in Ramadan, or more recently the bombing of Pakistani villages
by the U.S. Air Force, including one raid in Bajaur which killed
80 Pakistani children and teenagers. Magid has not mourned the
destruction of Fallujah, or the devastation of FIVE other
Islamic cities in Iraq's Anbar province, with all their mosques
and Islamic schools.
The U.S. government considers Magid's visit to the Holocaust Museum a
valuable propaganda tool in its efforts to infiltrate Muslims. Magid
is one of the FEW, if not the ONLY person with a Muslim name, whose
"achievement" is being distributed and publicized by the U.S.
government's Information service.
See: USINFO produced by the Bureau of International Information Programs,
U.S. Department of State. Web site: http://usinfo.state.gov.
CLOSE TIES to the FBI:
Imam Magid has turned the ADAMS Center into a listening post for the
FBI's infiltration into Muslim communities. NOT ONE PERSON has been
arrested as a terrorist but for no acceptable reason Imam Magid
has brought the agents of the oppressors right into the Islamic
place of worship. Don't take our word for it. Here is what the
ADAMS Center web site says:
If no one has been arrested and no one is under suspicion, then why
this "excellent relationship?" It has to be Magid's gift to the agents
and agencies of the government. There is no other excuse. In all these
years after 9.11, the Center has suffered three minor incidents of
graffiti spray and a couple of threats. That is certainly not an
excuse for the need for "protection." The place has enough money to
pay Muslim guards and to organize security.
"ADAMS maintains an excellent relationship with the FBI,
the Department of the Treasury, the Department of State, and
various state and local law enforcement agencies."
In its November 14, 2005 issue, TIME magazine, was so pleased with
ISNA VP Magid's anti-Islam activities that it published a laudatory
report on Magid. [Believe it: Magid is so shameless that he had
himself photographed getting an award from the FBI. The photo is
available on the Internet] After extensive praise of Magid's
virtues, TIME wrote as follows:
"Now Magid often serves as an intermediary, coaxing reluctant congregants
who might have useful information about unusual activities in their
neighborhoods into meeting with the FBI and advising the bureau on how
to be more culturally sensitive--for example, by having male agents
schedule interviews with women only when their husbands could be
present. Magid regularly tips off the bureau when a stranger with a
questionable background wanders into his center. In one case, mosque
members alerted him to a newcomer who dealt only in cash and wanted
to list the ADAMS-center address as his home on his driver's license
application. The next time the imam saw the man in his mosque, he kept
the newcomer in his office until agents showed up to question him. In
the end, the FBI cleared the man."
This story gradually spread through the Muslim community because TIME
is sold at grocery stores. To ward off a backlash from the Muslim
community, Magid published this "clarification" on the ADAMS web site:
'The article mentioned, "Magid regularly tips off the bureau [FBI]ů" The
nature of my relationship with the FBI and law enforcement is that
I meet monthly as a member of a collaborative effort by a
number of Muslim American organizations that advocate mutual respect
and rights in dealing with federal law enforcement agencies. I often
convey to the FBI that our Muslim community needs to be treated as
partners, not as suspects. I have repeatedly stated in our
meetings that I am proud of our ADAMS community, as we uphold the
law and work to bring about justice. Our Muslim Advisory committee
does not use these monthly meetings to report upon the activities
of our community members as the purpose of the meetings are solely
to create avenues to work with law enforcement to preserve our civil
liberties and civil rights.
'The article also stated that I " kept the newcomer in his office
until agents showed up to question him" Referring to a certain
incident we had few months ago at ADAMS Center. In this case, I
would like to make clear that the brother involved had been reported
to the law enforcement by another person. When the matter came to my
attention I informed him that he had been reported to the authorities.
The brother asked if he could wait in my office, with an interpreter,
so that he could clear his name with the law enforcement. I waited
with him in my office, and the matter was settled by a respectful
and understanding agent." '
Two serious problems are noticeable here:
Magid is NOT denying his relationship with the FBI. He meets them on
a MONTHLY basis. He considers himself a PARTNER of the FBI. Notice
that he does not deny helping FBI to question Muslim WOMEN.
Secondly, he did not send this clarification to be be published in
TIME magazine. It's a basic rule of journalism, that the
clarification must be published where the error was published,
if it was an error. One can only presume that Magid is interested
in keeping the Muslim community fooled. His turban and beard and
Arabic make him popular among Indo-Pakistanis who are easily
impressed by such externals. Owing to lack of political maturity,
young, rich Muslims are often attracted to characters like Magid.
We urge Magid to remove his turban, shave his beard and join the
FBI where he really belongs.
Jose Padilla, U.S. Citizen, Latino Muslim:
1,307 Days in Military Prison Isolation
Excerpts from a Reuters report by Jane Sutton Sun Jan 21, 11:17 AM ET
MIAMI (Reuters) - Jose Padilla rocked back and forth during the meetings
with a psychologist, his chained hands sweating and facial muscles
twitching, and insisted repeatedly in a voice devoid of emotion that
he was not crazy.
He is a bit paranoid and believes the government is persecuting him,
"but this does not appear to be delusional," wrote one of doctors who
examined the alleged al Qaeda operative in a Miami prison cell at his
Padilla's case, now set for trial in April, has tested the limits of
presidential authority and raised questions about whether the fight
against terrorism trumps the basic rights of U.S. citizens.
Arrested in May 2002 and accused by the Bush administration of planning
to explode a radioactive bomb, Padilla was held without trial for 3 1/2
years in a military prison. Last year, he was sent into the federal
justice system, the "dirty bomber" accusation quietly dropped and a
lesser charge of supporting terrorism brought against him instead.
His lawyers said in court papers that 1,307 days of extreme isolation,
abuse and interrogation in a U.S. military prison had left the
36-year-old American too mentally impaired to stand trial for aiding
Islamist terrorists in the Middle East, eastern Europe and Africa.
They want the charges dropped.
U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke gave prison doctors until February 9
to conduct their own mental exam of Padilla. The prosecution rejects
claims that Padilla was mistreated.
Yet court documents paint a harrowing picture of his detention at the
U.S. Naval Consolidated Brig in Charleston, South Carolina, where the
Padilla was held without charge as an "enemy combatant" by order of
President George W. Bush.
Padilla was kept in a 9-by-7-foot (3-by-2-metre) cell, the lone occupant
in a two-story, 10-unit block, defense lawyer Andrew Patel wrote in an
affidavit. The windows were blocked so no light could enter and meals,
often cold, were delivered through a slot in the door, Patel said.
Interrogators ordered his pillow and foam mattress removed, forcing
Padilla to sleep on a bare steel platform.
Padilla was kept without a clock, calendar or reading material, sometimes
for long periods in darkness, and other times for long periods under
bright light. He was subjected to extreme cold, deprived of sleep,
chained in painful positions and drugged with what he believed to be
"truth serum," the documents alleged.
"I have been advised that his cell was electronically monitored and
that Mr. Padilla had no contact with other human beings," Patel wrote.
NO LAWYER, NO MAIL
For the first two years, he was not allowed to speak with a lawyer nor
send or receive mail, except for a brief note sent to his mother in
Florida through the International Committee of the Red Cross.
When Patel was first allowed to visit his client in March 2004, the
brig staff told him that Padilla "was so docile and inactive that
his behavior was like that of a piece of furniture," Patel wrote.
Nonetheless photos introduced in the court case showed that when
Padilla was taken to see a dentist, he was shackled at the hands
and feet, wearing blackout goggles and earmuffs, and escorted by
guards whose faces were hidden by riot helmets.
Padilla, a former gang member who converted to Islam and moved to
Egypt after serving time for firing a gun during a traffic dispute,
was arrested at Chicago's O'Hare Airport as he returned from Pakistan
in May 2002.
The doctors do not believe Padilla is faking mental illness. He speaks
in a monotone and tries to hide his anxiety, they wrote.
"He is terrified that anyone will consider him mentally ill or crazy,"
wrote Dr. Angela Hegarty, a forensic psychiatrist who examined him.
