Smile a little: The diarrhea of censorship on TV

Watch the major media! It would seem that America has no one who can discuss serious issues. No Islamic scholars, no African-American intellectuals, no Whites like Ramsey Clark appear on the TV screens. Ever seen Dr. Abdulalim Shabazz on TV? Instead you have the Zionists INTERVIEWING EACH OTHER. These featherheads were supposed to be entertainers and hosts. Now they pose as philosophers.

Glenn Beck rolls his eyes, shakes the folds of fat on his face, makes stupid statements about Iran on CNN Prime. He gets promoted to be a commentator on regular CNN! [His gem: Ahmedinejad is a dictator!]

Larry King has an hour all to himself and carefully leaves out Muslims and African-Americans and anyone who would rock the Zionist boat. Glenn Beck interviews Larry King!

Lou Dobbs [CNN's roly poly "I know it all" man] showed his hatred for immigrants. Lo and behold! he was promoted to be a philosopher about immigration.

It's a sign of our times that O'Reilly has the highest ratings. He brings in the opposition, though only to knock them down. CNN pretends that there is no opposition.

Watch what India and Israel are up to:

An Israeli military delegation led by Gen. Moshe Kaplinsky started a tour of India on June 8, 2007. Six days later, June 14, the delegation is in occupied Kashmir.

Book received.
PAKISTAN: The link between Hasan al-Banna and Quaid-e-Azam Mohamed Ali Jinnah. One Islam, One Ummah.

New Trend has just received the May 2007 Special Issue of Tarjumanul Qur'an, published in the Urdu language from Lahore, Pakistan. It's a 401 page book in memory of the 100th anniversary of Hasan al-Banna [shaheed] the founder of the original Ikhwan-ul-Muslimeen [Muslim Brotherhood]. [Special edition by Abdul Ghaffar Aziz and Saleem Mansoor Khalid under the supervision of Prof. Khurshid Ahmed and Muslim Sajjad.]

TOP NEWS: Hamas Victory: Israel's Hand Emerged Through Fatah but was Broken. U.S. Islamic Leader calls for Trial of Dahlan

June 12-14, 2007. An all out battle between the Islamic resistance movement Hamas and secularist Fatah has led to a complete Hamas victory. The last strongholds of Fatah have fallen. Gaza is now in Islamic hands. On June 14, Fatah's central command center was captured. Mahmoud Abbas, backed by Israel and Arab governments, is calling on his elite guard forces to strike back in the West Bank.
The sputtering skirmishes between the two sides exploded into open battle when Israel-backed elements in Fatah tried to kill the elected Prime Minister of Palestine, Ismail Haniyeh, and to carry out a coup against the elected government.
Ever since the Hamas election victory, Israel has consistently tried to strangle the will of the Palestinian people. Gaza was turned into a large concentration camp which the Israelis would enter at will to kill Islamic activists and their families.
Meanwhile Israel pampered the criminal elements within Fatah and organized and armed them. The U.S. gave $40 million to Fatah. When Israel sensed that Hamas had been softened up, Islamic activists were being killed without a Hamas response, Israel gave the go ahead signal to Fatah criminal elements.

It was a serious mistake by Israel. The Islamic fighters, though OUTNUMBERED 5 to 1, hit back and smashed Fatah's military capability in only 4 days of heavy fighting. Israel has suffered a serious setback.

One reason for the setback was that the saner elements within Fatah did not support the attempted coup.

COMMITTEE to TRY Dahlan for crimes against Palestine:
Jamaat al-Muslimeen [USA] leader Imam Badi Ali has set up a Committee to Try Dahlan, the Fatah leader who is alleged to be working for Israeli intelligence [Mossad] and U.S. intelligence [CIA]. Dahlan is very seriously involved in carrying out the Israeli agenda in Gaza.

Recently Dahlan was allowed to speak at length on Egyptian TV and radio to do propaganda against Islamic movements. He claimed, for instance, that a TV host on Al-Jazeerah was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. As a result the host was removed.

Imam Badi Ali points out that Egyptian intelligence services have been active in helping Israeli attacks on Islamic activists in Gaza. Dahlan should be put on trial to remove Israeli disruption within the Palestinian communities, Imam Ali said.

June 10, 2007: Imam Warith Deen Umar as Example of Civil Resistance

During the anti-Israel demonstration in Washington, DC, a card produced by Jamaat al-Muslimeen was distributed. It describes the attacks of the U.S. government on Imam Warith Deen Umar, one of the most distinguished imams in America.

First the Zionist-FBI regime tried to intimidate Imam Umar by raiding his apartment in the Bronx and trashing his prayer area and desecrating the Qur'an.

When the regime saw that it could not intimidate Imam Umar, it attacked his home and tried to provoke him. The regime's bandits took dogs into the Imam's Islamic home and tried to intimidate his wife and his daughter.

[We are continuing the distribution of this card. To help, write to the Jamaat address, above, and send a donation for postage.]

Fishy "Attack on Shi'ite Shrine" Story: "Inside Job" Say First Reports: Why Bush Worried? Sunni Mosques get no Publicity
From New Trend's Think Tank

June 13, 2007 First reports of the bombing of the Askari Shiite shrine in Samarra, Iraq stated clearly that it must have been an inside job. [Repeatedly mentioned on MSNBC Tv 8 to 10 AM Eastern Standard Time. Ten security guards have been arrested]
The first reports added that the shrine had three rings of security: Shi'ite troops inside the shrine, Shi'ite and Sunni troops outside, and then an outer ring of U.S. troops. No infiltrator could possibly have brought packages of dynamite inside the structure, attached them to the minarets and then triggered the explosions WITHOUT ANYONE NOTICING. This had to be an inside job.

The Shi'ite rulers installed by the U.S. in a fake "election" use these provocations to carry out massacres of Sunnis, analysts say. In 2006, nearly 100 Sunni mosques were attacked and 140 Sunnis killed. This time too, hardly had the news come out when the Al-Ruba'i mosque, a major Sunni mosque in eastern Baghdad, was set on fire. A smaller Sunni mosque was also set on fire within the hour.

Curfew was supposedly imposed by the apostate al-Maliki but on June 14, UNDER COVER OF CURFEW, 9 Sunni mosques were attacked.

The Zionist media faded out the first reports of an "inside job" and proclaimed that this was an attack by Sunnis on Shias, "most probably by al-Qaida militants." Till now there is no such evidence.
Our analysts say that the U.S. media conceal important facts about the situation of mosques in Iraq:

Almost all Sunni mosques in western Iraq have either been destroyed or desecrated by U.S. occupation forces. These include mosques in Fallujah, Ramadi, Tal Afar, Haditha and other towns.
For a photo of U.S. troops, in battle gear, camping in a Sunni mosque, go to our web site: , click on NEWS, "Go to" PICTURES, #6.
During these years of desecration and destruction of mosques by the U.S., the Shi'ite leadership, including Iran and Sistani, kept quiet.
The U.S. government's immediately defends the Shi'ite shrine. Bush went to the extent of mentioning it in his annual speech. This time too, June 13, he specifically condemned the bombing. This gives the impression that the U.S. is deliberately instigating the Shias and giving them the "go ahead."
For the sake of peace, Shia leaders should condemn the bombing and destruction of Sunni mosques by the U.S. and urge their reconstruction by Shias and the U.S. Also, an international commission should be set up to investigate the repeated bombing of the Samarra shrine.
Remember that the U.S. used artillery to damage the mausoleum of Shaikh Abdul Qadir Gailani and the tomb of Imam Abu Hanifah. Then too, the Shias did not restrain their American allies. In these graves, real saints are buried while in the Shi'ite shrine there is no verifiable evidence that any imam of the Shias is buried.
Iraqi Shi'ites committed a strategic error by siding with the U.S. in its occupation of Iraq. Sistani seems to have no idea that he is on the wrong side of history. Observers say, like his fellow sectarians in the time of Mongol onslaught, he is supporting anti-Islam forces. It's a blunder because the Islamic world is fighting the occupation armies and there is no sign of retreat.

Letter: Re: Muslimah uncovers Informant in JFK plot.

When will the Muslims learn that all this entrapment was authorized by U.S. Congress in 1974, and President Jimmy Carter initiated the first notorious STING operation code-named ABSCAM conducted by the FBI on February 2, 1980. Since that time the law enforcement folks have ruined the lives of many a people, including many Muslims and one named John Delorean by President Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, through DEA and FBI, but finally he was acquitted by the jury in 1986. It ruined his marriage and family with devastating effect. And did we forget the entrapment of Matgaret Trudeau in a Disco Club in New York City to not only give a bad name to Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau by ruining his marriage too, in order to punish him for having friendly relations with Cuban President Castro.

Letter: New Trend Accused of Name Calling: Re: Tariq Nelson

You undermine your critiques with name calling and inflammatory language. You also seem to take statements out of context and then completely malign the character of people. You also accuse people of working for Zionists or buying into Zionist view point without evidence supporting the claim. One example is that you accused Tariq Nelson of working for Zionists. What evidence do you have for some claims? You did not produce any convincing factual evidence. Instead you use the Z word to discredit any individual you do not agree with.
It closes off any openess for exchange and dialogue. Also, I find that labelling irresponsible and counterproductive. Do you understand that accusing Muslims of being a Zionist supporter or spy can endanger their lives?

The journal does not seem to be about reporting stories that are overlooked in the Western media. That is where you could do the most service to our community and it would be great if it did that.
Instead, the opinion pieces are often conflated with news pieces. What seems to stand out the most is that your journal is about pressing a singular view point, supporting conspiracy theories, and attacking people whose political stances differ from yours. Sure you give them a small space to response, then in the end your journal offers the final word.

Letter: Re: Lieberman: Warmonger Calling for Attack on Iran: U.S. Jews at Work

I think it should be pointed out that Joseph Lieberman is not only a Congressman, he is also a trained rabbi. He is also a dual citizen of Israel. I spoke with a woman that is in charge of people that mass on Congressmen pertaining to issues about Israel. She confirmed this. So it should be no surprise that Lieberman is in favor of turning Iran into glass. These wars are about Israel, not Al Qaeda, terrorists, or WMD.

The woman that I met was in charge of a large group (mass) of people that continually meet with every member of Congress when there is an issue pertaining to Israel. They swarm the Hill not missing a beat when there are issues that might hurt Israel, and reverse any bills or issues that might be negative towards Israel. They try and persuade the Congress to vote in favor of everything that would benefit Israel. I met this woman while on vacation in the Dominican Republic. She was a converted Jew, she said and her husband was Jewish. The point of this is that the Jewish community in America, has loyalties to Israel-a foreign country, over any loyalties to the U.S. They have their own government in New York City, near the U.N., in which many members of Congress and former Presidents have talked and made unconditional promises to back Israel. This is common knowledge and reported repeatedly in the papers.

An American Muslimah re-Arranging her life

Why follow everything the Prophet [pbuh] did?
[Part I.]

by Sis. Rahgeer-e- Saleha

I am no expert yet this question has come up many a time from friends and family.
The answer is of course in many places in the Qur'an. The succinct one that comes to mind is in Surah Ale Imran: 31 Allah (swt) says " O Nabi tell the people that if you truly love Allah then follow me in what I do (i.e. Prophet Muhammad pbuh) and Allah will love you and will forgive your mistakes as He (swt) is supremely Forgiving and Raheem"

But then the question, why not follow him only in his religious practices why in everything he ate, did or did not do and in his daily behavior?

As I understand it, (please correct me if I am mistaken) Allah sent us Prophet Muhammad (saw) for a reason. He was a human being who had human needs and emotions. He could have sent us a saint or an angel who would not have all the attributes and vulnerabilities of a human being.
He (SWT) did this so that we could follow the example of a human being and learn how to live with all the daily challenges of life and yet be subservient to Allah.
Since Islam is a way of life, Prophet Muhammad's (saw) way of living is the way to emulate for a Muslim. Understanding each and every one of his actions may become possible if one researches each aspect separately in detail and with the most recent scientific resources. As it is almost impossible for an average person to research all the sciences of food, sleep, sociology, medicine and human behavior, many of Prophet Muhammad's (saw) behaviors may be incompletely understood, or not understood at all. Allah made it easy for an average person to get closer to Allah by following Prophet Muhammad as everyone may not have the ability to do all that research prior to understanding why. This levels the playing field for all.

Personally my "gegenhalten" attempts at following the Prophet have resulted in the evolution of the positive aspects in my life. Even though I have wanted to share these thoughts and feelings with you, I have not been able to organize my thoughts well enough to express them verbally.
I personally started my path to follow the actions of the Rasool (pbuh) with Salah. This was something that the Prophet (saw) did with love; it was his time with Allah. I on the other hand had always done salah as something I crossed off my to do list as "done" so that I could go on and do more fun stuff without feeling guilty. I stuck it in between my other activities, which were a priority for me. At that time of salah I may not have been dressed for it or in a mood for it or in a place for it and it was more a necessary chore rather than a priority.
The major difference in how I did Salah before and now was a change in attitude: [To be continued, inshallah.]

British Muslim of Pakistani Descent: Symbol of British Oppression of Muslims, may be extradited within days to the U.S.

Babar's father Ashfaq Ahmad Campaigning for his release

Preliminary Information:


Babar Ahmad is a British citizen who was born and brought up in South London.

In December 2003 he was arrested by Anti-Terrorist Police who broke into his house in a pre-dawn raid. He was then brutally assaulted in front of his wife. He sustained over 50 injuries to his body, two of which were life-threatening. During this attack Babar was placed in the prayer position and asked, "Where is your God now?"

After six days of intensive investigation he was released WITHOUT CHARGE.

Babar filed a complaint against the police officers who assaulted him. Despite photographic evidence of his injuries, independent medical reports and eye-witness statements, the Crown Prosecution Service decided that there was "insufficient evidence" to prosecute any of the officers involved.

On 5th August 2004 Babar was re-arrested on an Extradition Warrant from the United States of America. He is currently held as a British Political Prisoner at Woodhill Prison, Milton Keynes awaiting Extradition proceedings to commence in November 2004.

These are the allegations now made against him.

The Objectives of this Website

Since his re-arrest Babar has been demonised in much of the media. In Terrorism cases, the notion of "guilty until proven innocent" is commonly applied and only one side of the story is portrayed.

This website is run predominantly by Babar's family to fulfill the following objectives:

1) To act as an information resource providing case facts, excerpts of legal documents and medical reports, photographs and news relating to the case.

2) To humanise Babar Ahmad and to show him as a normal, professional and kind human being rather than a "terrorist".

3) To enable the public to form a more balanced and fair opinion on the case of Babar Ahmad.

Under the Extradition Act 2003 Babar cannot challenge any of the "evidence" against him in a British Court of Law. As a British Citizen, he should be entitled to an open fair trial in the UK. If he is extradited to the US, he will face the same Human and Civil Rights abuses that many experience at the hands of the US Government.

This website also contains information regarding the current UK Anti-Terrorism Laws and how they affect Civil Liberties.

Campaign Supported by:

Stop Political Terror, Muslim Council of Britain, Islamic Human Rights' Commission, Campaign Against Criminalising of Communities, Imperial College Students' Union, Liberty, Muslim Association of Britain, The 1990 Trust, Respect, Islamic Shariah Council of Great Britain, Stop the War Coalition, and many more organisations and individuals.
