Imam Badi Ali Urges Palestinian Parliament to Impeach Abbas
The disclosure that President Mahmoud Abbas and various members of his
administration had secret links with Israeli intelligence has shocked
but not surprised the Muslim world. Imam Badi Ali, Jamaat al-Muslimeen
leader from North Carolina urges the elected body of the Palestinian
people to impeach Mahmoud Abbas and all those members of his
administration who were linked to and working with Israeli, U.S.
and other intelligence services working against the Palestinian and
The Palestinian legislative assembly was elected in free and open elections
by the Palestinian people. The Islamic content of the Palestinian struggle
was clearly emphasized in the elections because 95% of those elected are
from the Islamic Resistance movement Hamas, Imam Badi Ali pointed out.
Imam Ali said that the elected body has the right to impeach Abbas and to
put all those officials on trial who have betrayed Palestine by carrying
on secret relationships with the Israelis, the U.S. The evidence
collected from the offices of Fatah and Abbas indicates that the
Palestinian people are in great danger owing to these secret links
with the enemies of the people.
Many of the Israeli murders of Palestinian resistance leaders were probably
carried out through these linkages with Abbas, Dahlan and other
treacherous elements in Fatah, Imam Ali concluded.
Outstanding Muslim Attorney & his Activist Wife Released Owing to
Powerful Protests by New York Communities
From Abu Talib, Jamaat al-Muslimeen Brooklyn & Lynne Stewart
June 22, 2007: MICHAEL TARIF WARREN & EVELYN WARREN RELEASED
"Round about midnight"
People's Attorneys MICHAEL TARIF WARREN and his wife
were released to a cheering crowd of supporters who had come from near
and far to stand vigil demanding their immediate release.
JC, MXG, FIERCE, CAAAV, DECEMBER 12TH MOVEMENT, INTERNATIONAL ACTION
CENTER, The MUMIA Coalition, CEMOTAP, Jericho, The Safiya/Nuh Foundation
were present. WBAI was on the scene with Rosa making sure the news got
to the airwaves. The Muslim community was also well represented and
countless other community groups and individuals also represented and
came out strong for our Sister and Brother lawyers.
TARIF has defended many of our political prisoners, done countless police
brutality cases, unpopular cases like Larry Davis and El Sayyid A.
Nosair - the accused killer of right wing anti-Arab extremist Meir
Kahane, and countless others. Tarif and Evelyn have always stood on
solid principles of people power and it was a wonderful sight to see
the response of the people. All Power To the people!
In the final analysis it was THE PEOPLE who secured the release of these
two fighters. And of course the people's politician, Brooklyn City
Councilmember, Charles Barron, was there and never left their side. 100
Blacks in Law Enforcement lent their support and called the Borough
Commander to the 77th Precinct - by then already swelling to capacity
and beyond with The People...and they kept arriving. It soon became
clear to the Precinct personnel and NYPD top brass that no one intended
to leave until Michael and Evelyn were released. Evelyn was released
first. Stoic as she was and remained, it was obvious the experience had
taken an extreme toll and her face was bruised where the police
reportedly hit her. Within the hour after that, word filtered out
that they were considering/ planning to release Tarif with a "DAT".
Still no one moved - and more people arrived outside. Then one officer
came outside to the vehicle where Evelyn was sitting saying she could go
inside and sit with her husband. Twenty minutes later both walked out
surrounded by Charles Barron, Attorney Roger Wareham and other attorneys
and an elated crowd shouting "Freedom Fighters" and "Allah Akbar" and
cheering their release.
HERE ARE THE FACTS AS I KNOW THEM SO FAR:
Shortly before 6PM Thursday evening Evelyn and Tarif were in their vehicle
stopped at a traffic light on Vanderbilt and Atlantic Avenue's in Brooklyn
when they saw a young man running with a lot of police apparently chasing
him. When they catch him and throw him to the ground with his hands behind
him the Warrens see police encircle him and begin to kick him. When they
get out of their vehicle and begin to approach the scene verbally
questioning why the police order them to get back in their vehicle.
After they got back in the vehicle police aggressively approached them.
When they announce that they are lawyers the officer reportedly became
irate and began an assault on TARIF, When EVELYN asked "why are you doing
that?" the cop reportedly hit her in the jaw, pulled TARIF out of the
vehicle, cuffed him and arrested him. A huge crowd had apparently
gathered so Evelyn went to speak to witnesses. When she tried to take
her vehicle and drive off she too was arrested.
I can say for certain that both TARIF and EVELYN were bruised in the face
and TARIF'S clothing appeared torn. EVELYN was charged with disorderly
conduct and MICHAEL TARIF WARREN is charged with resisting arrest,
obstruction of governmental administration and disorderly conduct...
While misdemeanors, if convicted this people's attorney could be disbarred!

Superb classic of Islam! A must read for people interested in the global
Islamic revolution which is taking on and defeating a superpower.
The preface by Dr. Algar is a brilliant, though brief, expose of the
prejudices of Stephen Schwartz and others who have tried to trivialize
Sayyid Qutb as a narrow minded "wahhabi." Algar himself has a problem
understanding Osama bin Laden and "wahhabis" but his medicine is a
suitable antidote for the poison of Stephen Schwartz.
With Iqbal and Maudoodi, Syed Qutb symbolized the 20 century vanguard of
Islamic revival which has made Islam into a global power even without a
government. In one incisive passage, Qutb explains the indivisibility of
Islam in these words:
"When we examine the places in the Qur'an where the acts designated by the
jurists as 'acts of worship' are mentioned, an inescapable truth confronts
us: they are never isolated from other types of activity, precisely those
designated by the jurists as 'transactions.' They occur in one and the
same context of Qur'anic guidance, each of them constituting one half of
the path of worship that is the purpose of human existence.
"The division between the two categories led some people to imagine that
they could be Muslim simply if they performed the 'acts of worship' in
accordance with the ordinances of Islam, while they conduct their
'transactions' in accordance with some other criterion, derived from
other than God - a 'god' who permits them to do what God has not
" This is a great illusion. Islam is an indivisible unity. Whoever
separates it into halves in this way has abandoned the unity and abandoned
religion. This must be borne in mind by every Muslim who seeks to make a
reality of his Islam and at the same time the purpose of his existence."
The New Qadiani Sect!
Desecration of a Masjid:
President Bush Visits Islamic Center DC, Speaks from Pulpit,
accompanied by CAIR's Hooper and Other Bootlickers
New Trend Report
June 27, 2007: The President of the U.S., George Bush, visited the Islamic
Center on Massachusetts Avenue in Washington, DC. He was welcomed by a
person named Khouj, "Imam" of the Center, Ibrahim Hooper, Director of
CAIR, officials from various embassies, etc.
President Bush desecrated the mosque by speaking from the Mimbar and by
trying to teach Islam to Muslims. He claimed that Islam has been hijacked
by extremists but Bush's friends represent the true Islam which is
moderate. He announced that he is going to appoint an American Muslim
as "ambassador" to the Muslim world. [He did not name his nominee but
hardly had the program ended when CAIR hailed the "appointment " on its
President Bush tried to divide the Muslim world by making this
"The greatest challenge facing people of conscience is to help the forces
of moderation win the great struggle against extremism that is now playing
out across the broader Middle East. We've seen the expansion of the
concept of religious freedom and individual rights in every region of
the world -- except one. In the Middle East, we have seen instead the
rise of a group of extremists who seek to use religion as a path to power
and a means of domination."
He added: "These self-appointed vanguard -- this self-appointed vanguard
presumes to speak for Muslims. They do not. They call all Muslims who do
not believe in their harsh and hateful ideology "infidels" and "betrayers"
of the true Muslim faith. This enemy falsely claims that America is at war
with Muslims and the Muslim faith, when in fact it is these radicals who
are Islam's true enemy."
Who advises Mr. Bush? He seems to be totally cut off from reality, living,
as one publication noted, "in a bubble." Muslims will laugh at these words
of Mr. Bush. If Mr. Bush really believes that America is not at war with
Islam, let him point out EVEN ONE independent Islamic Movement which he
does not consider "extremist" and "terrorist." Be it Hamas or Hezbollah,
Al-Qaida or the Taliban, Gama'a al-Islamiya [Egypt] or Jamaah al-Islamiyah
[Indonesia], Jamaat ad-Da'wa [Pakistan] or Lashkare Taiba [Kashmir], he
has condemned them all.
Israel, the Arab dictators, the corrupt ruler of Pakistan and Karzai of
Kabul along with the Shias of Iraq are Bush's friends. No wonder people
laugh when he makes these weird statements about extremists. Unfortunately,
he wields deadly force and from his ignorance comes endless war, death
One of New Trend's readers has sent a poem, an irreverent jingle about
Bush and Hooper, written after CAIR welcomed the June 27
desecration of the DC Islamic Center. Hooper is the Director of CAIR
along with the sorry creature known as Nihad Awad:
Bush and Hooper!
Super, Duper? No! No!
Bush and Hooper!
Shit and Goober!
Bush and Hooper!
Pit and Pooper!
Bush and Hooper!
Spit and looper!
Bush and Hooper!
Skit and Scooter!
Bush and Hooper!
Skip and drooper!
Long Live America!
Belgian activist Verbeke Challenges Authenticity of the Diary of Anne
Frank as well the "Holocaust" myth. He is censored & sentenced
repeatedly but persists.
Belgian Publisher in Prison for 'Thought Crimes'
For years Siegfried Verbeke has been an important European revisionist
publisher ... In early August 2005, he was again arrested, this time at
an Amsterdam, Netherlands, airport, on the basis of an international
arrest warrant issued a year earlier in Germany. After being held for
three months in the Netherlands, he was transferred to Germany. After
being held for six months in an isolation cell in a Heidelberg jail,
he was suddenly released on bail. In November 2006 Verbeke was arrested
again in his home town of Kortrijk, on the basis of an earlier Belgian
court sentence, and thereafter was held in prison in Belgium. He
anticipates being released in July 2007
U.S. Affirms Bombing of Pakistani Villages with Musharraf's Support
June 24, 2007. NATO's spokesman affirmed that the recent air attacks on
Pakistani soil [like previous ones] were carried out with the full
cooperation of the Pakistan army. He said that the Pak. army not only
supported the attack process but also helped in the investigation which
followed to sort out "ordinary citizens" from "extremists" among the dead.
NATO's statement flatly contradicted General Musharraf's internal
propaganda that U.S./NATO forces are not permitted to attack
The NATO spokesman, Major John Thomas, told AFP that in addition to the
bombing, NATO also crossed into Pakistan to pursue the "extremists" who
were preparing to attack. SIXTY Pakistanis were killed in the NATO attack.
NATO expressed regrets that one of its bombs had hit civilian structures
[perhaps a hotel, he said] killing "civilians." Villagers say that 20 of
those killed belonged to one family in the Gungi Khel, a sub-tribe of the
Ahmedzai Wazir. NATO says the Pakistanis fired their rifles at NATO jets
flying overhead; hence the attack.
Musharraf Ready to Attack Jamia Hafsa & Lal Masjid:
Worries about Female Dead Bodies' Photos
June 29, 2007: Speaking at the National Defense establishment in Islamabad,
General Musharraf said that he is not a coward and is preparing to attack
the Islamic university for women [supported by Lal Masjid]. He justified
his statement by saying that "suicide bombers" from Jaish Muhammad were
hiding in Lal Masjid. He said he would attack without hesitation but is
concerned that the women of Jamia Hafsa will resist and media will show
their dead bodies on TV to embarrass him.
Earlier Jamia Hafsa again embarrassed Musharraf when the Islamic women
arrested 9 Chinese women who were operating a massage parlor and were
allegedly providing sexual favors to Musharraf's officials. They were
later released by the Islamic women on their pledge to stop their
activities and as a gesture of friendship with China.
In his Juma khutbas, Maulana Abdul Aziz, the fiery khateeb of Lal Masjid,
has been exposing the exploitation of women under Musharraf's regime.
In another khutba the Maulana urged Pakistanis to wage jihad to
stop American attacks on Pakistani villages in the border with
Afghanistan. [The big Friday prayer crowd in Lal Masjid chanted:
Sabiluna: Al-Jihad, al-Jihad. Translation: Our Way, Jihad, Jihad.]
Maulana Abdul Aziz challenged Musharraf that if exploitation of women is
not stopped and if adultery and fornication continues to proliferate
in so-called Islamabad, he will institute deterrent Islamic
punishments against the offenders. Corruption in Pakistani elite
societies is very deep, says Maulana Abdul Aziz, and only decisive
Islamic surgery can solve the problem. He cites a minister who had
the wife of a man living with him. She later was found dead and the
minister is being investigated for murder. He also cites cases of sexual
crimes against female children.
Masses of people support him and his deputy Abdur Rashid Ghazi whom New
Trend interviewed earlier. As Abdul Aziz speaks, the crowd chants, right
in the masjid: Sabiluna, Sabiluna, al-jihad, al-jihad.
800,000 Homeless in Baluchistan:
Civil Breakdown in Karachi, Flood near Peshawar
After a month of hellish heat in Pakistan which led to breakdown of
electric and water supplies, specially in Karachi, storms and torrential
rains have flooded vast areas. Pakistan is not able to help the masses
of its poor population while the elites live in luxury and splendor.
Jamaat ad-Da'wa, led by Hafiz Saeed, was the first organization to
help the people of Karachi, Baluchistan and Khyber [near Peshawar].
Hundreds of its long bearded volunteers were activated to go into the
devastated areas and provide food supplies, meals and hope. [According
to the Bush administration, Jamaat ad-Da'wa is a terrorist organization!]
IRAQ: Biggest U.S. Offensive in Baqubah Fizzled out:
U.S. TV Media Stopped Coverage
After two days of heavy fighting in which the U.S. made headway, the
biggest U.S. offensive, with 10,000 troops appears to have fizzled out.
Looks like the "Islamic State in Iraq" led by Al-Qaida has scored a
military victory. The U.S. TV media completely stopped coverage of the
fighting and devoted itself to gossip about a call girl named Paris
Hilton and various murder stories including one where a police officer
killed his pregnant girlfriend.
The U.S. death toll in Iraq has risen to 3577 plus 800 "contractors"
killed, 26,000 plus troops wounded. Iraqi losses are much heavier. The
city of Baqubah has been destroyed.
Meanwhile Al-Qaida struck a serious blow when one of its martyrdom
operators entered a prestigious Baghdad hotel and detonated, killing 6
"Shaikhs" [Sunnis] who had come to Baghdad from Anbar province to
collaborate with the U.S. In its explanation for the attack [which
made its way to the Washington Post] Al-Qaida said that the attack
occurred because the "Shaikhs" had instituted a new police force which
had raped a Muslim woman.
Shi'ite support for U.S. occupation continued during the assault on
Baqubah. Three segments of Shi'ite military forces went into the battle
to clear the way for the U.S. troops. These were: Interior Ministry
troops [Nuri al-Maliki], Badr brigades [trained by al-Hakim in Iran]
and Sadr's Mahdi army. All three were savagely beaten back by the
Islamic resistance, forcing the U.S. to go in. However, in the interim,
the elite Al-Qaida force leaders had slipped away. The U.S. forces could
not advance owing to heavy ambushes. The people refused to help the U.S.
and had their houses broken into.
CNN showed clips of one battle on June 28. For three hours, U.S. and
Shi'ite troops tried to dislodge an al-Qaida unit from one house south
of Baghdad. Finally, the U.S. withdrew the Shi'ites and dropped a 2,000
pound bomb on the position killing the five Islamic fighters in it.
Some idea of the fighting in the north has come out. On June 23 the U.S.
killed a Turkish Islamic leader of Al-Qaida, Mehmet Yilmaz, and his
assistant. [FOX TV June 27] It appears that Turkish Islamic fighters
are working with Kurdish Islamic fighters of Ansar al-Sunnah, etc, who
have been attacking Kurds linked to the U.S. and Israel in Sulaimaniya
and Kirkuk. [3 U.S. troops were killed and one wounded in an Islamic
attack in Kirkuk. CNN June 14.]
AFGHANISTAN: New Taliban Tactics: Plus Another Attack in Kabul
Taliban appear to have changed their tactics following massacres of
civilians by the U.S. air force. Instead of massing their troops in
strategic areas to deliver quick blows, like DadAllah used to do, the
new commander is delivering numerous pin prick attacks by small Taliban
units ACROSS Afghanistan. The attacks are so many that New Trend cannot
report them adequately.
June 27: Four American troops and 2 Karzais were killed in a hit-and-run
Taliban attack in the Karanjal area of Kunar province.
June 28: In a dare devil martyrdom attack on a U.S. convoy in Kabul, a
Taliban assailant killed 2 American and one Nepalese armed "contractors"
and wounded 2 American and 3 Karzai troops.
June 25: In Nangarhar province, Taliban shot down two unmanned American
spy planes. NATO kept quiet about it but local police confirmed the
destruction of the two planes. In Zeri district of Kandahar, three
policemen hired by Karzai were killed in a Taliban attack. The U.S.
air force attacked the Taliban and killed at least some of the small
unit. In Farah province [northwestern Afghanistan] a police vehicle was
blown up by remote control killing its occupants.
June 22: In the Kandahar area, Taliban hijacked 6 lorries carrying supplies
for American forces fighting the Taliban in Helmand province. The lorries
were burned and their drivers beheaded. A note left near the bodies
warned transporters not to supply the Americans. Transporters in the
area have gone on strike after the horrific discovery.
June 24: After a Taliban ambush in Helmand province in which a British
soldier was killed and 4 Karzais wounded, the British troops panicked
and started firing at random killing one civilian and wounding scores.
June 21: In Qala Musa, the armed son of the Karzai police chief who was
involved in torture was kidnapped and executed by the Taliban.
June 18: In the northwestern city of Maymana, A Norwegian soldier was
wounded when his patrol came under fire. Earlier, 3 Norwegian troops were
wounded in a bomb attack. In another Taliban attack two LATVIAN troops
were killed. [Latvia is part of NATO]
