CAMPAIGN to FREE IMAM JAMIL Abdullah al-AMIN:
After the Confession by Gang Leader
The confession of Farrakhan Bey that he committed the shootings for
which Imam Jamil was convicted gives the Muslim community a chance to
press for the release of Imam Jamil.
If you haven't seen the confession go to New Trend's web site.
A big push is needed to free the Imam. We are organizing a stream of
post cards to be sent out to the leadership level people interested
in justice for the Imam.
Muslims should know that Imam Jamil stands for the Sunnah of Muhammad,
pbuh. He is a genuine Muslim. No "American Islam" sectarianism in him.
Globally, the Muslim nations should demand his release.
African-Americans and Black Power groups should remember that Imam Jamil
is the famous activist they new as H.Rap Brown. Don't forget your

Why 90 Years for Masaud Khan? Victim of U.S. Support for India
Why should a Pakistani-American be sentenced to prison for 90 years? Do
you think he committed a crime against America? No! Masaud never did
anything against the U.S.
His alleged crime is that he is said to have gone to an Islamic camp set
up by Jamaat ad-Da'wah and showed emotional, verbal support for the
freedom struggle of the Kashmiri people.
How was he to know that the U.S. would become any ally of India? How was
he to know that the U.S. would agree with India that those who are
fighting for the freedom of Kashmir are "terrorists?"
The U.S. government dug up the Neutrality Act from its archives to
The question arises: When will Pakistani Americans raise their voice in
support of Masaud.
When will people in Pakistan call for an end to this shameful injustice?
NINETY YEARS for what? Visiting an Islamic pro-Kashmir camp?
When will KASHMIRIS and KASHMIRI-AMERICANS call for Masaud's release. Is
it a crime to show support for Kashmir?
Wake up Muslims! Don't let the oppressors get away with this huge
injustice against an innocent man.

Thinking Outside the Box
Destruction of German Cities and Populations in World War II:
Cold Blooded Mass Murder: Censorship of a Major Publication
by Kaukab Siddique
The Fire: The Bombing of Germany, 1940-1945 by Jorg Friedrich
translated by Allison Brown, Columbia University Press, 2006. Original
in German published 2002.
Friedrich spent his life condemning Hitler and the crimes of the Nazis.
The victors were convinced that he could be trusted, particularly when
he took the line that whatever Germany suffered, it was deserved
because it supported Hitler. As a result of his [seeming?] subservience,
Friedrich was permitted to research the documents related to the
bombing of German cities.
The book is heavily documented, comparable to the style David Irving
uses. Friedrich lets the facts speak for themselves. There are few
books which can leave a reader so sickened by the suffering of German
civilians as this one days. The destruction of of German cities goes
beyond anything the Jews suffered in the alleged "holocaust." Every
German city became what the Jews say Auschwitz was.
Here is the pattern the British and the Americans created step by step:
First the British claimed they were simply retaliating for German attacks
on British cities.
Then the British said, we are bombing German munition and armament
Then they said, we are bombing German cities to help the Russians in the
counteroffensive against Hitler.
Then they, with the Americans, started AREA BOMBING, the destruction of
entire cities, block by block.
The French, Dutch, Romanian, Hungarian, Belgian populations cooperating
with the Germans were also bombed and killed by the thousands.
The FIRE refers to the technique the British developed to set entire
German cities on fire. This was a systematic attempt to carry out the
MASS MURDER of German civilians. The pretense of hitting military targets
was not even given lip service.
Finally, the German air force and anti-aircraft artillery were defeated
and more or less wiped out. the German cities were defenseless. This
only whetted the appetite of the British and U.S. air fleets.
EVERY GERMAN CITY was destroyed.
Churches were destroyed.
Museums were destroyed.
Libraries were destroyed.
Schools were destroyed.
Refugee camps were destroyed.
The most beautiful cultural artifacts, specially those of great historic
value, were specially and specifically targeted and destroyed.
Dear reader, next time you hear stories about Hitler and the Nazis and
the "holocaust" remember that the victors have to hide the enormity of
the crimes they committed against civilian populations.
As David Irving has pointed out, Churchill's Jewish friend and adviser,
the "Prof." was behind the Churchill plan of mass murder. This was the
real Holocaust. Friedrich mentions the views of the "Prof." but dares
not dwell on them.
Not surprisingly, America has largely ignored The Fire. Censorship is
well honed by the American media.
"American Islam:" The New Qadianism
Beloved of the Zionist Media and ISNA Claimed Worldwide Muslim Protests
against Cartoons of the Prophet, pbuh, were terroristic!
By Kaukab Siddique, Ph.D
Sis. Balquis [Alabama], an African-American sister who has spent her
life serving the cause of Allah, has brought to my attention that
Zaid Shakir's abusive and cheap shot attack on President Saddam
Hussein [shaheed] was only the tip of the iceberg. No Muslim worth
the name would approve of the murder of even an ordinary Muslim on
his religious holiday, Eid al-Adha. Here we had Zaid Shakir, of Zaytuna
Institute, sidekick of Hamza Yusuf, attacking the martyred President of
a Muslim nation and leader of the resistance. Shakir showed that he is
merciless against Muslims and loves his masters.
Now our sister Balquis has sent information which indicates that Zaid
Shakir is in in much deeper: even in the case of the cartoons of the
Prophet, pbuh, distributed worldwide by the enemies of Islam, Shakir
blamed not the oppressors and worldwide Zionism but the Muslims who
protested against the outrage!
What happened to such a seemingly nice young man as Zaid Shakir used to
be, many years back pretending to be "Malcolm X!" How low Allah has
brought him in his drive to be popular in Bush's America. Looks like
he believes the Zionist media's accounts of Muslim protests. These are
Shakir's words about the protests:
"I do not mean to imply that Muslims are not justifiably angry over the
caricatures. However, I would agree with those who argue that responses
that involve wild outbreaks of frenzied violence are inappropriate,
and they only affirm what the cartoonist is trying to imply. Namely,
that Islam is a religion that encourages obscurantist violence and
"Outbreaks of frenzied violence!," "obscurantist violence and terrorism!"
These are the words Shakir has taken from the vocabulary of George Bush
and the Zionists about Muslims. All over the world, millions of Muslims
protested peacefully and in a very disciplined manner. The nearest
they came to "violence" was the burning of the flags of countries
which published the cartoons. The real violence occurred when despotic
regimes, as in Libya, gunned down Muslims protesting against the cartoons.
So influenced is Shakir by enemy propaganda that he takes a high and
mighty stance. His words again:
"...it is all too easy to get swept up into the mob hysteria generated
by the crowd, and then engage in outrageous actions that only affirm
the offensive claims of the transgressing cartoonist."
Shakir is a true flag waver and loves his masters as against the entire
ummah of Islam. This is how he describes the motivation [niyya] of
the protestors against the cartoons:
"superficial shows of piety, and counterproductive one-upmanship
Thus for Shakir, the Islam of the Muslim masses is "superficial" and
those who put their lives on the line are involved in "one-upmanship
miltancy." Does Zaid Shakir give any evidence for his condemnation of
the Muslim ummah? No. Of course not. His behavior is not very very
different from that of the Qadianis who used to claim that uprising
against the British is futile.
Shakir gives a weak argument from the suffering of the Prophet, pbuh,
at Taif. The Prophet, pbuh, forgave those who tormented him at Taif, so
we should forgive those who are making cartoons of the Prophet, pbuh.
What a twisted and weak argument. If Zaid Shakir is under attack by a
non-Muslim or someone is making cartoons of Shakir, perhaps Shakir
should forgive him. [Shakir is living comfortably in Zaytuna Institute.
The unbelievers love hm because he opposes the Ummah.]
From a false premise, Shakir argues against the Muslims protesting the
cartoons. He does not realize that the attack on the Prophet, pbuh, is
an attack on Islam, on the entire Islamic world. It is an act of war.
It's not a personal matter. Shakir is misusing Islam. The Prophet, pbuh,
forgave when he was under personal abuse by misled people but surely
Shakir knows that when the oppressors attacked Islam, the Prophet,
pbuh, fought back.
Acting as a true representative of "American Islam," Shakir refers to
a strategy he has [or perhaps Zaytuna has?] which the Muslim world is
ignoring. What strategy? Come on, Zaid Shakir, we too live in the
US of A! You can't fool us. What strategy? Shakir and Hamza Yusuf have
no strategy, other than assimilation, kow-towing to the people in power,
trying to please the slave masters. [Hamza Yusuf et al do not teach the
authentic Islam of the Qur'an and the Hadith. Instead, their emphasis
is on Maliki Fiqh, thus adding to the fragmentation in the Muslim
Shakir's punch line comes out after his moralizing about Taif and
forgiving the enemies. His real purpose is to provide support for
"American Islam." He says it straight out:
"Whatever we do, as Muslims in the West, we may be approaching the day
when we will have to go it alone. If our coreligionists in the East
cannot respect the fact that we are trying to accomplish things here
in the West, and that their oftentimes ill-considered actions
undermines that work in many instances, then it will be hard for
us to consider them allies. How can one be an ally when he fails
to consult you concerning actions whose negative consequences you
will suffer? No one from the Muslim east consults us before launching
The Muslim world should consult with the champion of "American Islam?"
Not with Imam Jamil Abdullah al-Amin, not with Imam Musa, not with
Imam Badi Ali, not with Imam Warith Deen Umar, not with Imam Muhammad
al-'Asi, not with Dr. Omar 'Abdel Rahman, not with Prof. Sami al-Arian,
Ahmed 'Abdel Sattar,
not with Br. Hodari Ali, not with Imam Khalil Abdur-Rahman, not with
Dr. Waheeduddin Ahmed, not with Sis. Karen English, not with
Sis. Ashira Na'im, not with Sis. Aisha Shaheed, not even with
Imam Ali Siddiqui or Br. Sulayman Kurter but with "Imam" Zaid Shakir!
There is a funny side to Shakir. At the conclusion of the article, we
read the following, probably from his own pen. Note the biblical
"Imam Zaid Shakir is amongst the most respected and influential
Muslim scholars in the West."

Rally Against Israeli Aggression and Occupation:
Six Day "War" Memorial: June 10
"IPPA ACTION ALERT"
Reply To: Islamic_Political_Party_USA@yahoogroups.com
June 2007 marks the 40th anniversary of Israelis illegal occupation
of the Palestinian Territories, including East Jerusalem taken in the
'Six Day War.' (But Palestinian suffering dates back further to 1948,
when the state of Israel was created and 750,000 Palestinians were
driven or fled from their homes.)
Occupation means daily injustice meted out to the Palestinians living
in the Occupied Territories. Roadblocks and checkpoints have made
everyday activities like traveling to school, hospital or visiting
friends & relatives into chores lasting several hours. Not to mention
the crippling effect this has had on the Palestinian economy.
Islamic Political Party of America ( IPPA ) in coalition with United
for Peace & Justice (UFPJ) a coalition comprised of more than 1,400
peace and justice organizations across the US is commemorating the
40th anniversary of Israeli Occupation with a massive national march
on Washington DC.
Settlements which are in fact illegal colonies are being continuously
expanded throughout the West Bank and linked with highways that only
Jewish residents can use: 21st Century Apartheid. Colonies are also
strategically sited near aquifers ensuring that control of precious
water resources stays with Israel thus increasing Palestinian
dependence on Israel. The colonies and the highway network has had
the effect of carving up the West Bank and making any potential
Palestinian State a patchwork of 'Bantustans' rather than a viable,
Such actions call into question whether the Israeli Government is
actually committed to abiding by International law or indeed to a
two state solution.
The Israeli Government calls Jerusalem its "Eternal Capital" yet this
very statement contravenes United Nations and International Law. The
legal status of Jerusalem is very clear and leaves no room for ambiguity;
East Jerusalem is considered by the international community to be
illegally occupied by Israel, in contravention of several binding UN
Security Council Resolutions. In these resolutions, the United Nations
Security Council has also called for no measures to be taken to change
the status of Jerusalem until a final settlement is reached between
the sides: declaring Jerusalem as Israel's capital is an attempt to
change this status, and is thus a violation of these Security Council
Yet despite this Israel continues to defy the UN and the international
community with almost no challenge from the democratic nations who have
traditionally championed the moral high ground and respect for the rule
of law. The silence of the US Government in holding Israel to account
and standing up for the rights of the Palestinian people, especially
during the premeditated Israeli attack on Lebanon, has been especially
disappointing. Along with many EU countries, the US government is today
involved in a close military, economic and political relationship with
Israel. IPPA call upon the US government to stand up for international
law and human rights.
The American media has an important role to play in highlighting this
important and tragic milestone to the public. IPPA is hopeful that
the media will fulfill its moral obligations and tell the story of
the Palestinian plight on this important anniversary.

Incident at Masjid al-Islam, Washington, DC
By Bilal Siraj ul-Diin
May 25, 2007 Jumu'ah. This was Imam Abdul-Alim Musa's first khutbah
at Masjid Al-Islam after about a month of traveling throughout the
Southern United States to various masajid. Everybody was happy and
eagerly anticipating the words of wisdom and experience of the Imam;
however, one thing was glaringly evident to the regular congregants
of Masjid al-Islam. In the back row of the Masjid sat a heavyset man
with a white beard and a tan hat. No one had ever seen him in the
Masjid, though many recognized him as the same individual who has
caused disruptions during Imam Muhammad al-Asi's khutbahs on
Massachusetts Avenue in Washington, D.C. Others recognized him as
the bicyclist who disrupted last year's al-Quds demonstration near
Embassy Row. So, his appearance triggered the suspicions of many in
the congregation. In the past his questionable actions have lead some
to wonder if this person is majnoon or if he is an agent playing the
part of one who has lost their wit.
Imam Musa ascended the mimbar and gave a wonderful talk, telling those
in the jamaat about his time in the South and the wonderful progression
he saw in just about all the Masajid. The "storefront" mosques of two
decades ago had grown into "cathedral-sized" centers of Islam with
large congregations, the jamaat of their maghrib and isha prayers
rivaling the size of a Jumu'ah jamaat in the DC area. With the
exception of two Masajid, all were eager to help the Imam in his
fundraising. Imam Musa's comments on his travels drew smiles and
even chuckles from the congregation. However, when the Imam began
to talk about the political issues facing the ummah and the attempts
made by an imperialist, vehemently anti-Islamic government to stifle
the growth of Islam in the West, the 6'0" tall, heavy set, white
bearded individual with vest and tan hat stood up and began to yell
at the imam.
Through his largely incoherent spiel, one could make out the words
sirat al-mustaqiin and sunnah. Here this individual was, talking about
the "right path" and about "following the sunnah," while his rude and
unprovoked outburst during the khutbah destroyed any rewards he may
have received for Jumu'ah. His act was brazen but obviously rash,
because the attention of the congregation he garnered with his
outburst checked him at least momentarily.
Not missing a beat, Imam Musa quickly responded:
"Hey, wait a minute, just be quiet. No, no, we're here, just look,
look here, just a minute, just a minute. This is our day to sell
wolf tickets, not yours. You know what I mean? Do you think that we
dumb enough to know that if we start, we gonna have a program on
selling wolf tickets, that the ole Euro ain't gonna send some jackass
around here to try and play with us? You can't outsell no wolf ticket
with me sucka! You a amateur. No, no, what we do, we don't wanna throw
you out but we talked about it before. You can go over there to
Northwest. You can either sit down and shut up, like you supposed to
do in jumu'ah or we gonna bump your behind out of here all Islamically.
Cuz you're violating the sunnah, remember? When you come to prayer?
Nobody gonna hurt you, don't y'all all start looking at the brother.
We knew when he come in here where he come from. He ain't never come
in here before..."
This incident occurred just as Masjid Al-Islam and Imam Musa prepared
for a program scheduled for June 2, dealing with the FBI and how
Muslims can protect themselves from harassment and false cases. Is
it a coincidence that this individual, who has never previously set
foot into Masjid Al-Islam, came to the Masjid just as this topic was
being discussed? Is he majnoon or is he an agent playing the part?
Perhaps the phrase I heard in my childhood, "there is no such thing
as a coincidence," is true. We'll have to watch how this issue plays
out in the coming days. As Allah says in Surah al-Imran: "The
unbelievers plot and plan and Allah too plots and plans and Allah is
the BEST of all planners."
Letter: Hizbullah could have hurt Israel but didn't......
Your questions against the performance of Hizbullah during Israel's last
year attack on Lebanon are quite pertinent and meaningful. Was it a
"Noora Kushti" to leave the power of Israel intact, as you said, and
the biting teeth of Hizbullah remain unbroken?.
It is my sixth sense that tells me that both Israel and Iran are the
flocks of the same feather - fighting outwardly but "friendly" inside.
Their history, growth and close cooperation in the past confirms it.
In the last ten year's Iraq -Iran War during eighties, Israel helped
Iran in many ways. That is why I am sure that Israel will never
attack Iran's nuclear installations as she did in Iraq and Iran knows
it. Her obstinacy against Euro-American's mounting pressure tells the
same story. The war of words will continue unabated. The USA cannot
dare to attack Iran and gets her overall interests in the ME sabotaged
and hence it would keep itself connivingly only agitated. In the
meanwhile, Iran will get ample time to complete its natural desire
to become a nuclear power on its own merit.
Letter: Re: Comment on the Anniversary of Malcolm: Use his correct name
Malcolm's name was Malik Shabazz. Some called him Al Hajj Malik Shabazz,
but it was not Malcolm X. The X identified us with the Nation of Islam.
He was not longer a member of the NOI. The X symbolized the family name
we lost when we were kidnapped from Africa. The enemies if truth want
us to remember him as X the unknown...

AFGHANISTAN: MAY 31, 2007: In Helmand province, a Taliban unit shot
down a U.S. Chinook helicopter using an rpg. Five U.S. troops, one
Canadian and one British were killed. When a military relief column
was sent by the U.S. to the helicopter, it was attacked by the Taliban
and had to call in air support to avoid being wiped out.
May 30: In Nimroz province, in the Ghori area, Taliban set on a fire
the offices of an Indian construction company which was working
under the security of an Indian army unit in support of the U.S.
In the night attack, Taliban burnt the entire construction equipment
and its supplies which the Indians had brought in. The Indian company
has announced that it is suspending its work.
May 29: Norine MacDonald, of the Senlis Council think tank, testified
before the Canadian Parliament that the majority of 17,000 Afghans it
surveyed in April said that they think the Taliban will triumph
against NATO. More than 80% said that NATO does not care for the
suffering of the Afghan people. The conclusion of the Senlis Group
survey is that "western policy is creating poverty in Afghanistan and
is pushing the population to seek help from the Taliban."
