LATEST from Karachi, Pakistan: The forces of MQM-Musharraf continued
their rampage on May 13, killing 8 more people and injuring another 23. On
May 14, Karachi and most of Pakistan observed a general strike of historic
dimensions to protest the atrocities committed by MQM-Musharraf in
Karachi. Jamaat-e Islami leader Syed Munawar Hasan told New Trend that
this was a comprehensive strike and revealed the fact that both MQM and
Musharraf are isolated from and rejected by the people of Pakistan.
Pakistanis of the entire political spectrum have united against the
fascist activities of MQM and Musharraf, the JI leader said.

Steadily rising gas prices are quite possibly [even probably]
a hidden form of war tax.
Few Americans know that in every dollar of gas, 38 cents are for State
and Federal taxes. So, as the prices increase, not only the oil companies
[who are usually blamed] but the government gets the money it desperately
needs to run the increasingly expensive war.
To resist the hidden war tax, we urge readers to take these easy steps:
Drive 10 miles slower than you usually do, especially on the highways.
Walk to businesses which are 2 to 4 miles from your home. Short trips use
up most gas and wear down the car engine. Your health will improve,
Take public transportation where possible.
Share rides where possible.

Jerry Falwell Died an Inglorious Death:
Never Realized how he was used by the Zionists
The leader of the "Moral Majority" died on May 15. He was extremely
ignorant and abusive about Islam, never realizing that Islam has overcome
the abuse of much more guileful critics such as William Muir, Goldziher
and Schacht in the past and Bernard Lewis in our own times.
Falwell was a great friend of the Jewish terrorist entity known as Israel
and was given a medal of "honor" by the arch terrorist Begin himself.
Christianity is in steep decline, constantly in retreat under attack by
Zionist propagandists in the media. Falwell was a symbol of the fact that
Christianity is now no longer a coherent thought pattern and is fixated
only on miracles and money making. It is the rich man's religion. There
are still numerous good Christians. Falwell was not one of them.
The tragedy of Falwell was that he never realized that he was being used
by the Zionists as the perfect "fall guy." When CNN, NBC, ABC etc wanted
to promote a negative view of religion, they would bring Falwell as the
representative of religion. When the Zionists wanted to promote
homosexuality and Lesbianism, they would bring Falwell as the defender
of religion. Same way with abortion and peace.
[To understand why Falwell was so popular on TV, think of the way CAIR is
being used by the Zionists to represent "Islam." When people watch
CAIR-less men like Nihad Awad and ISNA types like "Imam" Magid and Siraj
Wahhaj and "imam" Hendi [State Department's "imam] and think that they
stand for Islam, the natural response of Christians is: If this is
"Islam," so lick spittly and boot licky and hypocritical, then surely
Christianity is better than "Islam!"]

Who will Wipe the Tears of our Bengali Sister?
Recently our representative visited a pizza shop in Albany, New York.
Situated in a poor area of the city, there is seemingly nothing
remarkable about this pizza shop. But the person in there running the
store makes one realize what is extraordinary here. She is wearing a full
hijab and niqab. The young woman [girl] behind the counter
too is in hijab.
A rough old White woman comes in and places an order. The girl can't
understand the order. The woman starts using the F word. The older hijabi
woman tells her to mind her mouth and gives her what she wanted.
The hijabi-niqabi woman is the wife of Muhammad Hussain, Bangladeshi pizza
shop owner who was sentenced on March 8, 2007 to 15 years in prison. The
U.S. government had trapped him and "proved" him to be a "terrorist."
Even the Judge was shocked but had to do the sentencing within the
guidelines fixed by the regime in Washington.
We watch as Muhammad Hussain's wife weeps quietly about her predicament
and is soothed by Sis. Islah Umar. She has been unable to visit her
husband in prison although it is a medium security prison. [The local
officials cannot believe that Hussain had anything to do with terrorism
and put him in "medium."]
Sis. Islah calls the prison on her cell phone and explains to the
niqabi sister how to proceed.
Why should this be happening to an innocent family which has been selling
pizza for over 10 years with a perfect record of civic behavior?
Hussain has 6 children. He was kept in prison for 2 years and 2 months,
August 2004 to October 2006, when finally he was convicted. Then he was
kept in prison for another 5 months before being sentenced to 15 years.
DON'T EVER SAY AMERICA HAS A JUST SYSTEM. This is tyranny plain and simple.
His "co-defendant", a Kurdish Imam, Yassin Aref, has 4 children and also
got 15 years. His wife is near breaking point. Aref thought the government
agent who trapped him was donating money to the mosque!
Oppression of Muslims in America 
Jose Padilla, Amin Hassoun and Dr. Kifah al-Jayyousi:
Innocents in Zionist-Controlled USA
May 14, 2007. The long awaited trial began in Miami. Padilla has been in
prison since 2002 [almost 5 years] The government dropped the "dirty bomb"
charge against him but claims there are many other charges. The government
prosecutor made a 75-minute opening speech in which "al-Qaida" was
mentioned 91 times.
Why is Amin Hassoun on trial. He used to raise funds for Bosnia in the
1990s. It's a "crime" written backwards in time which only Stalin
considered a justification for prosecution.
And why Kifah al-Jayyousi? The man is a school administrator, middle
class, with nothing in common with Padilla and has never in his life
talked to Padilla. Dr. al-Jayyousi's "crime" is that he talked to Hassoun
because he was interested in charitable activity to help children in
Bosnia and Chechnya. At that time, the U.S. supported Bosnia and Chechnia
and Kifah could have never dreamt that the U.S. would turn 360 degrees
The government needs all three because it wants to prove that a "terrorist
cell" existed in Miami! [Don't laugh!] So what's the evidence? Padilla
talked to Hassoun and Hassoun talked to al-Jayyousi. That "proves" a cell
Another rumor is that the government will bring a convicted person, with
an offer to reduce his sentence, to speak against Padilla.
There you have it! "Justice" in Zionist-controlled America!
Action Needed to Support Student Hunger Strike Against Nuclear Weapons
Saturday 12 May 2007
There is a hunger strike on University of California campuses.
Over 40 students, faculty and alumni, have decided to forgo food until the
University severs its ties with Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore
laboratories, which are presently planning to manufacture a whole new
hydrogen bomb arsenal in violation of our agreement in the
Non-proliferation Treaty for good faith efforts for nuclear disarmament.
They need our support! Letters should be written to the Regents of the
University asking the University to give up its management and ties to
the weapons labs.

Top Islamic Guerrilla Leader killed: May 12, 2007
Dadallah Fought both the Soviets and the USA:
Mullah Umar Appoints his brother as the new Commander
by Kaukab Siddique
Reports indicate that Mullah DadAllah went to visit his wife's family in
Helmand province when his movement was traced by a collaborator of the
NATO occupation forces [ostensibly from a sect]. Like most of the
resistance, DadAllah's people live in a small hutment in a small village.
He died fighting after being surrounded. The hawk-like eyes and extremely
handsome features of the Mullah, with his turban on his head, made him
look like Geronimo, the Apache Indian chief who defied U.S. cavalry
forces for years.
It is said that his whereabouts were first discovered when he gave an
interview to ABC TV. DadAllah did not realize that western and
western-linked media are not independent. They consider the Afghans as
terrorists and would not hesitate to use "interviews" to help the U.S.
to kill Islamic leaders. In the One Percent Doctrine by Ron
Suskind, page 138-139, there is documentation of Fouda, a journalist
in Al-Jazeerah TV, who was responsible for the capture of two high level
Islamists who were in Pakistan. Al-Jazeerah is very popular in the Arab
world but in one shot , through the Emir of Qatar, it did more for the
U.S. than the U.S. could do for itself.
DadAllah was hated in the USA and Europe and typified by Karzai's people
in a negative light. Among Muslims, DadAllah was known as a fighter of
mythical dimensions who handed battlefield defeats to the best troops of
Canada, Britain and the U.S. The Muslims consider him a martyr and see
his passing, though a serious loss for the resistance, a fulfillment of
the Muslim's ardent belief.
Will Taliban forces falter owing to this sudden loss? Analysts say that
Islamic resistance in Afghanistan works in a way which is often not
understood by outsiders. The Taliban are highly motivated followers of
Islam for whom fighting against occupation forces coming from Europe
and America comes naturally. The Jihad is based on the agitation of
Taliban mullahs [preachers of jihad] and those from associated groups
who move from village to village and stir up the people to fight against
the forces seen in Afghanistan as "crusaders" and "Occupiers."
The Jihad in Afghanistan is a slow process because travel is not on
highways but through mountains. Mullah DadAllah's achievement was that
he speeded up the process and struck deadly blows, like the quick,
straight jabs of a professional fighter, and then quickly withdrew,
leaving NATO forces floundering in the wilderness.
The loss is serious but before he was killed, DadAllah [literally one who
praises Allah] [also pronounced as Dadullah] built up a momentum for the
Islamic uprising which will most probably persist. DadAllah seemed
desirous of martyrdom as evidenced by the uncaring way in which he
His body was identified by U.S' collaborators from his being one legged.
He lost his leg fighting the Soviets. Thus his national credentials were
as strong as his Islamic motivation.
The Emir of the Taliban, Mullah Umar, has appointed DadAllah's younger
brother, Mullah Bakht Muhammad, as the new field commander of his forces.
Most observers agree that if the Taliban is a truly peoples' resistance,
the loss of Mullah DadAllah, though heart wrenching for the Afghan
people, will not impair the Afghan fighting spirit.
WAR NEWS: Compiled by New Trend's Media Monitor
EXPLOSION in PESHAWAR:
May 15, 2007: A huge bomb explosion in Merhaba hotel killed 24 people and
wounded 25. A note found in the site said: "This is the fate of those who
spy for America." Various theories have been put forward about the
explosion. The one which seems nearest to the facts is that the hotel
was frequented by Afghans, mostly Shias and supporters of the Karzai
group. This conclusion is strengthened by the visit to the site by the
Afghan Consular officials [Karzai group] after the explosion. One report
clearly states that this could have been retaliation for the spying which
led to the strike on Mullah DadAllah.
Pakistanis often forget that a war is raging across the border and they
up with strange theories when the violence spills over into Pakistan.
Rebellion Among Pakistani Troops:
May 13-14: Pakistani troops broke ranks with General Musharraf to fight
a bloody battle with Karzai's Afghan troops on the Pak border with Paktia
province [Spina Shaga area of Aryub Zazai district] on the Afghan border.
In two days of fighting in which artillery, mortars and machine guns
were liberally used, 13 Afghan Karzai troops and 17 Pakistanis
May 14: A commanders meeting was held between Pakistani, Afghan and U.S.
militaries at Teri Mengal village in Khurram tribal area to discuss how
to avoid incidents like the ones on the Paktia border. After the meeting,
there was a sudden outburst of firing in which a number of Pakistani
and U.S. troops were shot. The Pakistani version is that the meeting,
at its conclusion, was attacked by some "miscreants." However, this
version is difficult to accept because the meeting of such high rank
was under strict security.
The version of the Afghan [Karzai] governor of Paktia, who was in the
meeting, makes more sense. He says that the meeting went well, but as
the participants were returning to their helicopters, a Pakistani
soldier among those guarding the meeting opened fire on the U.S.
troops killing 2 U.S. and wounding 4. The U.S. troops returned heavy
fire, killing 5 Pakistani soldiers, including the shooter.
CURFEW IMPOSED: May 14: Following an attack on Pakistani forces in the
city of Tunk [just outside South Waziristan], curfew was imposed
on the entire area. Hand grenades were used in the attack resulting in
the death of one Pakistani paramilitary and injuries to several.
Islamic militants are suspected.

OSAMA bin LADEN is Alive and Leading Military Operations
May 14, 2007. Mujahideen leader Gulbuddin Hikmatyar, from his concealment
in eastern Afghanistan, debunked the idea that Osama is dead. Hikmatyar,
who supports the Taliban but is separate from them, said that not only
is he sure that Osama is alive but he is leading his own units of Islamic
volunteer fighters who continue to arrive from all over the world.
Hikmatyar was interviewed by an Arabic TV station which did not reveal
his location as he has a $5 million price on his head from the U.S. CIA.
[The bounty on Osama's head is $50 million.]
Taliban Ambush : May 15, 2007: A unit of Karzai's security forces,
trained and armed by the U.S., fell into a Taliban ambush in Nimroz
province and was wiped out. The Karzai administration admitted the
setback and said 8 of its troops were killed and others wounded.
Christopher Hitchens told lies, in detail and wholesale, about
Saddam's actions against the Kurds. Fuad Ajami of Johns Hopkins
University, Baltimore, said that the fall of Saddam was a "day of
deliverance" for us. [CBS January 2, 2007.] Jewish-Zionist TV commentator
Andrea Koppel said Saddam was a "butcher." [CNN January 7, 2007]
and so on down the whole world of Zionism. Here is a different analysis.
Analysis of Saddam Hussain's Struggle and the Claim that he
decimated the Kurds
Written the day before the Execution of the President of Iraq
Thursday/Friday, December 28-29, 2006
THE LIVING MARTYR
by Jeff Archer (Malcom Lagauche)
The decision to uphold the death sentence of Saddam Hussein by the sham
Iraqi appeals court has gained worldwide condemnation, except for the
U.S., of course. The court took two days to read 1,500 pages of documents
presented by the defense. No court in the world can decipher this number
of pages in such a short time, not even a legitimate court.
No one was surprised by the verdict against Saddam because of the
knowledge this was a foregone conclusion. However, the court outdid
itself by ruling on the Iraqi vice president, Ramadan. He was sentenced
to life in prison, but the appeals court took it upon itself to change
the sentence to death, even though his case was not on the docket.
From the time Saddam first set foot in court until today, the entire
system was stacked against him and conducted so many breaches of the
law that it would take an expert mathematician to give us a tally.
Dr. Curtis Doebbler, a noted international human rights attorney, was on
Saddam's legal team from the start. I spoke to him today to get his
opinion on the appeals court decision. He stated:
We're trying to point out that if an execution takes place, it will be
an ex-judicial, arbitrary execution outside the law in violation of the
law. It's somewhat ironic that this individual who will be executed has
proven to have much more integrity than the individuals who are executing
him, including the U.S. president who exhibits more evidence that he has
committed crimes against the Iraqi people than there was against the
president of Iraq in the first trial in which he was brought before the
U.S.-created court and there has still has been no investigation of the
As you've seen the Iraqi president has maintained his dignity and also
maintained his peace of mind in belief that he personifies the will of
the Iraq people to continue to fight against this occupation, which they
believe, and the majority of the international community believes, is
illegal and the consequence of the illegal invasion of Iraq.
It's quite a sad day, I think, for international justice and,
unfortunately, an another example of how the United States is unwilling
to conform with international law; to show respect for international
law. What hurts me most, as an American, is that we're the ones who
benefit the most from respecting that law. When we set this example,
we essentially tell people that the law cannot be used to try to get
the United States to respect their rights. They have to use other means.
That's what got us into many of the problems that we're in today.
Almost everybody in the U.S. is in the lynching mood. Pundits are
frothing at the mouth while they discuss the upcoming execution. There
is a collective air of insanity today in the U.S. Even former anti-war
proponents are cheering on the future execution. Many Democratic
politicians have said they were happy about the decision and that
Saddam "deserves" it. Not one, however, has discussed the legality or
the fairness of his trial.
Leftist journalists are trying to outdo each other in demeaning Saddam.
Not only are they talking about his "brutal dictatorship," they are
making up even new fables of atrocities committed under his regime.
I challenge all journalists who advocate the hanging of Saddam Hussein
to take a few hours and research reality.
The standard figure of deaths attributed to the Ba'ath regime during the
Anfal campaign is 182,000. Why have there not been any bodies found? If
182,000 people were killed, there must be piles and piles of bodies,
yet none has appeared.
If 148 people were sentenced to death in 1982 for attempting to
assassinate the president of Iraq, why are at least 24 still alive?
And, those who were executed received a lengthy and fair trial that
lasted about three years. They were fighting on the side of Iran while
Iraq was engaged in a war with its eastern neighbor. In the U.S., this
would be considered high treason. With Saddam Hussein, it was called
mass murder. George Bush himself signed off more execution orders while
the governor of Texas than did Saddam in the Dujail case.
If Iraqi military personnel gassed and killed 5,000 Kurds in Halabcha,
why were only 300 bodies found? And, why was the gas used to kill the
citizens cyanogen, a gas that Iraq did not possess but Iran did? Why
have the CIA, the U.S. Army War College, Greenpeace, the main CIA
analyst in 1988 (Stephen Pelletiere), the late Jude Waniski, the
U.S Marine Corps Historical Report, and various other individuals
and organizations blamed Iran for the gassing of the Kurds?
Why has not one Iraqi come forward and stated he was part of the
gassing campaign? Today, with the Ba'athists out of power, one cannot
use the excuse that no one would step forward because of threats of
death from the Ba'ath administration. Huge sums of money have been
offered for someone to state that he knew about or was part of the
gassing: a pilot, or a supply specialist, or an observer, anyone. Not
one person has emerged to claim the bounty.
In November 2003, the U.S. stated that 400,000 bodies were found in
mass graves in the south of Iraq. The following June, Tony Blair
admitted to the press that only 5,000 bodies were found. He "mis-spoke"
when he used the original figure of 400,000. Subsequent investigations
showed that many of the 5,000 were killed by U.S. bombs in Desert
Storm. Why has no one taken the ball and run with this story?
I have reported extensively on the above anomalies. Unfortunately, few
others have. To me, investigating and disproving accepted myths are
the marks of an astute journalists.
No, today we still hear all the beastly acts attributed to Saddam
Hussein from the mouths of people who should know better. Many people
have stated that George Bush has lied about everything to do with
Iraq: weapons of mass destruction; the Bin-Laden/Saddam link; the
Iraqi involvement with 9-11; the fictitious biological weapons trailers;
the imprisonment of an American POW since 1991; etc. Yet, the same
people broadcast the myths about Saddam Hussein's barbaric actions.
I again issue a challenge to the leftist press: Please explain if Bush
has lied about everything, why is he telling the truth about Saddam's
brutality? That's a hard one for the pundits to answer. For someone
with any amount of intelligence and logic, it is easy: Bush lied about
Saddam as well.
Here are a few questions that are not heard today, but should be crucial
in discussing Iraq:
Why don't we hear about Iraq being designated "free of illiteracy" by the
U.N. in 1982, when in 1973 the country's literacy rate was below 40%?
Why don't we hear about the proclamation of the U.N. in 1984 that Iraq's
education system was the finest the world had ever seen from a developing
Why don't we hear about the New York Times calling Iraq the
"Paris of the Middle East" in 1987?
Why don't we hear about Saddam Hussein visiting houses in the south of
Iraq in the 1970s just to make sure each one had a refrigerator and
Why don't we hear about the several million foreign Arabs who went to
Iraq to take advantage of the land program the Ba'athists instituted in
which the person would be given land to create crops?
Why don't we hear about the Iraqi educators and doctors who were sent
to Arab countries to assist them in developing their own programs?
Why don't we hear praise from Arab countries for Iraq having lost so
many soldiers in the Iran-Iraq War, all for the defense of these
countries who were scared about Iran exporting its religious
fundamentalism to their shores?
Why don't we hear about the several approaches made to Saddam in the
1990s by U.S. sources to recognize Israel and allow U.S. military bases
in Iraq in trade for lifting the embargo?
Why don't we hear that every U.S. person on the U.N. inspection team
from 1991 to 1998 was a spy, not an inspector?
The list could go on and on. In my upcoming book, The Mother of All
Battles: The Endless U.S.-Iraq War, I go into detail about these
and other matters left untouched by the cliché-ridden, myopic and
The current scenario just does not make sense. The people who lied
through their teeth (Bush, Cheney, Rice, Bremer, Powell, Rumsfeld, et
al) and stole tens of billions of dollars that belonged to the country
of Iraq, are proudly speaking of creating a new Middle East or
conducting book signing tours for their memoirs. The results of their
lies led to the killing of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis; a cost
of about a trillion dollars so far to the U.S. public; and the
destruction of a country's culture and infrastructure. Even the
history of Iraq has been re-written by people in Washington D.C.
On the other hand, the guy with the moustache who told the truth about
all the lies and adhered to the U.N. request for inspections, as well
as supplied a 12,000-page report that documented in detail every aspect
of Iraq's former WMD programs, sits in a jail cell awaiting execution.
Something is fundamentally wrong when things can get so far out of hand.
Today, Saddam Hussein is the freest man in Iraq, although he is behind
bars. His mind is clear and his integrity is nothing short of incredible.
He awaits death with dignity. Not once has he cracked under torture or
pressure. Even when offered a "get out of jail free" card by the U.S.
if he stopped the resistance, Saddam refused to capitulate.
Other leaders, such as Qaddafi and Noriega did succumb to U.S. pressure.
Qaddafi, once a revolutionary, today is nothing more than the head
inspector of the transfer of his country's oil to the capitalist giants.
He no longer has a grand view of society. He may not be in jail, but he
is a slave.
Noriega quickly began singing when the U.S. put on the pressure. He
admitted to trafficking in drugs, despite the U.S. being his partner.
And, he made a big deal of stating that he had found Jesus after he
was incarcerated. He is a slave behind bars.
Saddam Hussein is not a slave, although his incarceration keeps him
imprisoned. He is not allowed to see his family, unless, like his sons
and grandson, they are shot to death with hundreds of bullets. The U.S.
prides itself on "family values," but not for foreign individuals. A
U.S. family is sacred, but an Iraqi family is merely cannon fodder.
On January 17, 1991, Saddam Hussein proclaimed to the world, "The mother
of all battles has just begun." Despite two U.S. presidents declaring
victory over Iraq with a New York parade and a U.S. aircraft carrier
celebration, the mother of all battles now roars more fiercely than ever.
In about three weeks, it will be the 16th anniversary of the beginning
of the bombing of Iraq. Despite U.S. denials and proclamations, the
battle still rages. The bombing did not stop with the signing of a
cease-fire agreement on March 2, 1991. It continued until March 2003
from the illegal "no-fly" zones the U.S. created.
Soon, Saddam Hussein will be hanged. He will be dead, but his legacy
will not only survive him, it will be enhanced. The mother of all
battles is a long way from being terminated.
