Pakistan: What is not Being Reported about the attack on
On October 20, Dr. Kaukab Siddique was interviewed on XM
Radio, heard across America, by Dr. Wilmer Leon, host of the
"On With Leon" show concerning the situation arising in
Pakistan owing to the return of Peoples Party leader Ms.
Benazir Bhutto. Here are the main points made by Dr. Siddique.
Benazir Bhutto returned to Pakistan at the behest of the Bush
Administration. The Islamic movement has defeated General
Musharraf; hence Bhutto has been sent in to provide civilian
cover to further attacks on the Pakistani people.
The attack on ms. Bhutto has been misreported by the U.S.
media. It was not a random attack on civilians. Pakistani
media are reporting that the martyrdom operator hit the heavy
police escort which covered Ms. Bhutto as well Peoples Party
militants supporting her. Her special vehicle was targeted.
At least 30 police and about a 100 anti-Islam militants were
killed. The 4 police wagons and 20 PP militants' cars were
destroyed in the attack.
The attack is connected to Ms. Bhutto's support for the attack
on the Red Mosque and her approval of the slaughter of Islamic
women in Jamia Hafsa by Musharraf's commandos. She claimed
that the attack by the Musharraf regime should have come
Ms. Bhutto supports the wholesale destruction of the people of
Waziristan. She puts this policy under the label of the "war
Ms. Bhutto is a mediocre politician. She is being used because
her family are feudal landholders who can bring large numbers
of poor peasants into orchestrated rallies.
Pakistan's future belongs to the forces of Islam. They have
mass support in many areas of Pakistan, particularly the
Frontier and Baluchistan as well as parts of Punjab, but
cannot win in elections controlled by the military, large
landholders and industrialists. Hence conventional democracy
is a farce in Pakistan.
Lull in Iraq War by New Trend's Media Monitor
The U.S. is reporting only 32 U.S. troops killed and 85
wounded in fighting with al-Qaida-in-Iraq during three weeks
of October. The impression one gets is that the U.S. military
surge has succeeded at least for now.
However New Trend's analysis is quite contrary. Fighting has
tapered off because U.S. military forces are not trying to
enter large chunks of Iraq held by the Islamic resistance. If
the situation had improved for the U.S. military, media
coverage would have immediately followed. By contrast U.S. TV
media coverage of the Iraq war has GONE DOWN TO ZERO.
However, resistance source are providing extensive reporting
on the fighting. The mujahideen are trying to cut down
supporters of the U.S. in the north. At the end of Ramadan,
an entire network of 15 Kurdish Peshmerga working for the U.S.
were tried and executed [beheaded] by al-Qaida.
America's military forces are now mainly involved in using
inter-Shia conflict to attack Shi'ite groups trying to get
weapons and support directly from Iran. The U.S. a couple of
days back carried out an air attack on a Shi'ite group [after
being directed by Shi'ite informers] in which 49 Shi'ite
fighters as well as 13 civilians [women, children] were killed.
BBC is relatively better than U.S. media in providing visual
coverage of the resistance led by al-Qaida. On October 25,
BBC showed what happens on the highway passing by Tikrit, the
Sunni stronghold of Saddam Shaheed. Within minutes of the BBC
coverage start, the U.S. military convoy was hit by a roadside
bomb and a sniper shot a U.S. soldier and quickly moved away.
[BBC showed the shooting, blood and all.]
Al-Qaida seems to be intact. In view of the Bush-Democrat
agreement to continue the war in Iraq [possibly for years],
the resistance seems to have withdrawn its martyrdom operators.
The war seems to be open ended as New Trend had predicted..

Imam Jamil teaches in one of his CDs: Racial unity is not the
acceptable criterion in Islam. Allah will not ask whether you
are African-American, Pakistani or Egyptian. Did you speak out
for justice? That's the issue. Only Imam Jamil had the courage
to say this. Why was he able to break the "racial unity"
slogan which has divided America's Muslims? The answer is
simple: Imam Jamil follows the Sunnah! We must stop limiting
our support to the prisoners of our nationality. Our call:
Free ALL political prisoners.
Distinguished Imam Narrates U.S. Attack on Home,
October 20, 2007: Imam Warith Deen Umar made a powerful
speech in front of the Shoora of Jamaat al-Muslimeen. He
began by outlining his work in organizing the Islamic
chaplaincy system in New York state which became a model.
Under this system, the rights of Muslim inmates were assured.
The flagship of rightwing Zionism, the Wall Street
Journal, tried to convey the impression that in some way
the Imam is connected to the 9.11 attacks. The young men who
attacked the symbols of American power were not American
Muslims. By silencing the Imam, the WSJ wanted to smother any
rational discussion of the attack.
The Imam recounted how his rights were violated, his home was
invaded by the FBI with dogs, his apartment was ransacked, his
Qur'an desecrated, his passport and computers were taken away.
WHY? Simply because the WSJ had stolen some of the Imam's
writings which implied that the causes of the Islamic
counterattack [9.11] should be studied. His career was ruined
and he was put under house arrest for one year.
Muslims of America have a leader in Imam Umar. His example of
perseverance and courage stands out from the darkest days of
the Bush administration when those who had helped "bloc" vote
Bush into power were busy licking boots. They behaved like
Qadianis while the Imam behaved like Maulana Maudoodi.
Imam Siddique Abdullah Hasan was targeted by the
authorities following the prison uprising in Lucasville,
Ohio. He is on death row. Sis. Amatullah Hasan presented the
Shoora of Jamaat al-Muslimeen with a well-documented report
on the shameful methods used to convict Imam Hasan. See our
next issue for this astonishing presentation.
SABOTAGE FAILS, FREE SPEECH WINS
Despite last minute outside attempt to kill it,
"No More Wars for Israel"
Conference Great Success
By Mark Glenn [Organizer of the historic conference]
IRVINE, Calif. October 13. It was not the fact that this
reporter was under surveillance at the Spokane International
Airport by a man/woman team when heading toward California
nor that one of the scheduled speakers, a Roman Catholic
priest, was detained for close to 30 minutes as a "risk to
aviation safety" by Michael Chertoff's Department of Homeland
Security that indicated that trouble was brewing for the
upcoming "No More wars for Israel" conference in
Rather, it was what took place in the days and weeks
immediately preceding the event that portended problems for
all those involved with what was to be an expression of the
rights to freedom of speech, religion and association.
As far back as four weeks before the scheduled meeting, the
hotel contacted one of the conference organizers and told him
that persons claiming to be from the Irvine Police Department
were calling all hotels in the area, asking if an event
entitled "No More Wars for Israel" was scheduled, warning
hotel proprietors away from having any involvement in it.
The organizers of the conference, foreseeing this as a
likelihood, had booked the event in the name of "Liberty
Forum" rather than anything indicating that it was to be a
gathering of individuals opposed to the comings and goings of
Israel. For months after the conference was announced, details
as to the exact location were kept deliberately vague so that
the forces opposed to freedom of speech and association would
not be given a leg up in shutting it down preemptively.
In the meantime, this reporter was receiving daily emails from
Zionist agitators, threatening that it was "only a matter of
time" before the location of the event would be learned and
pressure brought to bear in shutting it down. Besides this,
several speakers whose names had been publicized as being
scheduled to appear, as well as Islamic organizations in
Southern California, began receiving emails warning them to
stay away from the event, characterized by these agitators as
a "neo-Nazi" gathering. As soon as the conference was made
publicly known, the ADL posted details of it on its website.
Less than 48 hours before the conference was to begin, one of
the organizers received a message from the events coordinator
at the hotel with a bombshell: the demand of $20,000 within
24 hours or the event would be banned. The contract had no
mention of any down payment. An attorney in the area was
quickly contacted and given all relevant information. The
lawyer informed the organizers that indeed there was no legal
case for the hotel to impose such a fee. In the meantime, the
hotel began asking questions about what the event was really
about and whether or not this reporter (whose name was well
known as the host) was involved in it. The attorney then
called the coordinator and attempted to smooth out the
difficulty, but despite the fact that about $8,000 had been
quickly raised, it was insufficient for the demands of the
hotel and the event was canceled.
In the meantime, people were pouring into Southern California,
expecting to attend the much-publicized event. Since the event
had been canceled, the rooms that had been booked had to be
paid for up front instead of at the end of the event as
previously arranged. This resulted in attendees and speakers
being forced to pay for rooms they had already paid for, a
minor problem compared to the fact that there was no location
to hold the conference.
This reporter woke early on October 13 and began going up and
down the street to every hotel in the area to inquire about
the availability of conference rooms. In almost every case,
there were rooms available suitable for the needs of the
event, but when this reporter was forced to give his name,
the hotels suddenly became too busy to take on any new
business. These locales had obviously been visited by someone
from the other side.
Another attempt was made to negotiate something with the
original hotel where everyone was booked and staying, but the
manager would hear nothing of it. Not even a stack of $100
bills a half-inch think was enough to induce her in allowing
the use of just one smaller room for the event. With a blank
stare that betrayed no emotion, the answer was the same to
every question posed to her: "The event is canceled. . . .
The event is canceled. . . . The event is canceled. . . ."
By mid-morning, things were looking bleak. People were pouring
in not just from around the country, but from around the world,
including Canada and Australia. With the limited funds the
organizers had, rooms had to be bought and people were forced
to bunk two to a room. It was at that moment that Dr. Hesham
Tillawi of Current Issues TV, a seasoned political activist
and one of the scheduled speakers, stepped up to the plate
and saved the event from a melt-down. In a closed meeting
with this reporter and some of the other organizers, his plan
" Put 10 people on phones calling all over the city in search
of a locale" a park, a library, a church basement, anything
that could house people; and
"Revive the sagging morale of those who were dealing with the
bitter disappointment of a conference that by this time was
16 hours past due by holding a protest outside the hotel."
Media was contacted, signs were made and then everyone there
was briefed on their part of the plan. By 2 p.m. everyone had
assembled outside the hotel, and with signs and placards began
the victory cry in unison "NO MORE WARS FOR ISRAEL! NO MORE
WARS FOR ISRAEL! NO MORE WARS FOR ISRAEL!"
The group of about 60 made its way down to the street corner
where (simultaneous to the protest) two live radio programs
were taking place via cell phone, Dr. Tillawi's normally
scheduled Current Issues radio program featured on the
Republic Broadcasting Network and one on Mike River's
What Really Happened.
Unmindful of what may happen if police were called for holding
a protest without a permit, the group continued making as much
noise as possible and with surprising results: honks from
passing cars and thumbs-up signals from opened car windows
showing support for what they were doing. Dr. Tillawi and
this reporter spent the bulk of the radio program
interviewing the various people there at the protest, both
scheduled speakers and attendees. The mood was electric.
Protesters returned to the hotel to hear that a locale had
been found for at least one night of the conference. Although
it was close to 4 p.m., which meant a shortened speaking
schedule, all boarded cars, shuttles and cabs and made their
way over to a Greek Orthodox Church. The session began with a
prayer from Fr. Christopher Hunter, one of the
Michael Piper opened the proceedings by welcoming everyone.
There were about 100 present, close to one-third of the
expected turnout had all gone as planned.
Speakers ranged from this reporter to Eileen Fleming,
pro-Palestinian activist, Wendy Campbell of MarWen media,
Chuck Carlson of "We Hold These Truths," Muslim scholar and
publisher of New Trend magazine Dr. Kaukab Siddique.
Instead of the fancy Italian dinner that was supposed to be
served at the Saturday night banquet, take-out pizzas were
ordered. No one complained.
Following the meal, the keynote speech was given by Hesham
Tillawi, who arguing like some high priced/high-profile
lawyer said the current wars in the Middle East were
engineered by and for Israel and not for the ancillary
reasons bantered about in discourse these days such as "for
freedom"? or "for oil."
One of the more memorable events was a speech by Phil Tourney,
survivor of the attack on the USS Liberty who, after receiving
a standing ovation, recounted his experiences on the day that
Israel attacked the lightly armed American recon ship,
followed by a question and answer session.
By the end of the evening, everyone was thoroughly exhausted.
The ups and downs of the weekend events had a strong emotional
effect on all, and everyone headed back to the hotel. The next
day, there was a small gathering at another locale that
featured some of the remaining speakers, including the
inimitable Dr. Fredrick Toben and rising anti-Zionist
Internet writer Patrick Grimm.
One of the themes of the event the Jewish lobby and its
stifling of free speech when it comes to the discussion of
Israel was proven correct before the conference even took
place. The fact that all had to be done in secrecy as if it
were in a communist country and then that in the end the
hotel canceled was proof positive that there can be no
freedom of speech in any country where the Zionist
But there is a growing number of people, in America and
throughout the world, who are standing up and allowing
themselves to be counted among those who refuse go quietly
into the night, who refuse to be silenced and who (in the
finest traditions of America) are now beginning to say with
one voice "NO MORE WARS FOR ISRAEL!"

African-American Muslimah Takes on Hirsi Ali's Attack on Islam
Hirsi Ali, Mistreated by men, hates Islam: Her Response
shows Inability to See West was Built on Backs of Africans:
Islam is the Solution
Infidel by Ayyana Hirsi Ali; 2007.
(Free Press; Simon & Shuster , New York , NY.)
My sister warned me about reading Ms. Ali's writings and now,
Ms. Ali is beginning to show how shaky her faith has become
(Chapter 14, "Leaving God"). I wonder how it happened that
I'm reading this book during the month of Ramadan. I
began reading it before Ramadan and found it very
interesting... the life of a rural, then transient, abused
Muslimah whose roots are in Somalia . I have also begun to
research this personality who allowed her autobiography to be
named a most hideous thing.
As I read about Ms. Ali's frantic security escapades, my faith
is confirmed. As she scolds Allah and denies the Creator of
her independence, intellect and free will, I am experiencing
gratefulness for those qualities that Allah provides. While
she belittles her very existence, I confirm the Existence of
Allah. I, the descendant of enslaved people, a "Westernized"
Muslimah, raised in North America, 'a free person of the
city' (Qur'an, 90:2 ), am confirming that Allah is the
best Rabb (Lord) and that Islam is the best
deen (way of life).
Her story is fluid and well written. It holds the readers
interest. I believe that the only flaws are Ms. Ali's anger
and inconsistencies in logic. Ms. Ali misses the point as she
swings from one extreme to the other. "Thus have We made of
you an Ummat justly balanced...for God is to all
people most surely full of kindness, Most Merciful"
I am not at liberty to repeat some of the things she writes.
Please, let it suffice to say that her writing displays a
rank hatred for Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, although he suffered
abuse and poverty as she did. "They encountered suffering and
adversity and were so shaken in spirit that even the Messenger
and those of faith cried: "When will come the help of God?"
Ah! Verily the help of God is (always) near!"(Qur'an, 2:214).
She insists on blaming Allah for the actions of humans and
the refusal of humans, male and female, to follow
She negates the "West's" history of racial genocide and abuse
of African communities. She fails to mention that the West has
been built on the backs of the Africans- from free labor to the
raping of resources. She ignores that much of Africa 's
present instability continues to be influenced by the West's
intrusion and interference in the lives of her people. She
even ignores the West's centuries of incivility and the
necessary evolution into their present state, which she adores
so much. "Many of us in the Third World , wistfully fix our
gaze on the material progress of the West, and by a queer
twist of Logic assume even this turning away from religion
as a cause of their success." (On striving to be a
Muslim, Prof. Qayyum; 1983)
Infidel is a good read. It is an opportunity to learn
about cultures and lifestyles so different from our own. Ms.
Ali is blessed that her Creator does not take her soul while
she's in this state. "And if any of you turn back from their
faith and die in unbelief, their works will bear no fruit in
this life and in the Hereafter; they will be Companions of the
Fire and will abide therein." (Qur'an, 2:217). The Creator is
so Merciful, that He has given her time to come to her senses
before death. Allah may even give her the time needed to right
the wrongs that she has inflicted upon a religion and
New Book Details Mass Killings and Brutal Mistreatment of
Germans at the End of World War Two
By Mark Weber
Germany's defeat in May 1945, and the end of World War II in
Europe, did not bring an end to death and suffering for the
vanquished German people. Instead the victorious Allies
ushered in a horrible new era that, in many ways, was worse
than the destruction wrought by war.
In a sobering and courageous new book, After the Reich: The
Brutal History of Allied Occupation, British historian
Giles MacDonogh details how the ruined and prostrate Reich
(including Austria) was systematically raped and robbed, and
how many Germans who survived the war were either killed in
cold blood or deliberately left to die of disease, cold,
malnutrition or starvation.
Many people take the view that, given the wartime misdeeds of
the Nazis, some degree of vengeful violence against the
defeated Germans was inevitable and perhaps justified. A
common response to reports of Allied atrocities is to say that
the Germans "deserved what they got." But as MacDonogh
establishes, the appalling cruelties inflicted on the totally
prostrate German people went far beyond that.
His best estimate is that some three million Germans,
military and civilians, died unnecessarily after the official
end of hostilities.
A million of these were men who were being held as prisoners
of war, most of whom died in Soviet captivity. (Of the 90,000
Germans who surrendered at Stalingrad, for example, only 5,000
ever returned to their homeland.) Less well known is the story
of the many thousands of German prisoners who died in American
and British captivity, most infamously in horrid holding camps
along the Rhine river, with no shelter and very little food.
Others, more fortunate, toiled as slave labor in Allied
countries, often for years.
Most of the two million German civilians who perished after
the end of the war were women, children and elderly -- victims
of disease, cold, hunger, suicide, and mass murder.
Apart from the wide-scale rape of millions of German girls and
woman in the Soviet occupation zones, perhaps the most
shocking outrage recorded by MacDonogh is the slaughter of a
quarter of a million Sudeten Germans by their vengeful Czech
compatriots. The wretched survivors of this ethnic cleansing
were pitched across the border, never to return to their
homes. There were similar scenes of death and dispossession
in Pomerania, Silesia and East Prussia as the age-old German
communities of those provinces were likewise brutally expunged.
We are ceaselessly reminded of the Third Reich's wartime
concentration camps. But few Americans are aware that such
infamous camps as Dachau, Buchenwald, Sachsenhausen and
Auschwitz stayed in business after the end of the war, only
now packed with German captives, many of whom
The vengeful plan by US Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau
to turn defeated Germany into an impoverished "pastoral"
country, stripped of modern industry, is recounted by
MacDonogh, as well as other genocidal schemes to starve,
sterilize or deport the population of what was left of the
It wasn't an awakening of humanitarian concern that prompted
a change in American and British attitudes toward the defeated
Germans. The shift in postwar policy was based on fear of
Soviet Russian expansion, and prompted a calculated appeal to
the German public to support the new anti-Soviet stance of the
US and Britain.
MacDonogh's important book is an antidote to the simplistic
but enduring propaganda portrait of World War II as a clash
between Good and Evil, and debunks the widely accepted image
of benevolent Allied treatment of defeated Germany.
This 615-page volume is much more than a gruesome chronicle
of death and human suffering. Enhanced with moving anecdotes,
it also provides historical context and perspective. It is
probably the best work available in English on this shameful
chapter of twentieth century history.
