Zulq'idah 6, 1428. November 16, 2007. #88
Muslims must study World War II to be able to rebut Zionist
propaganda. This is the anniversary of the Katyn Forest
massacre in which the Soviet Union secretly wiped out the
ENTIRE officers' Corp of Poland after arresting them. Their
bodies were discovered by the German army [Wehrmacht].
Remember that at the fraudulent Nuremburg trials, German
leaders were tried for war crimes though those sitting as
judges, including the Soviets, had themselves committed
horrendous atrocities. The Poles protested but were ignored.
Scroll way down
for two important items about Katyn.
Our America : From NT's media monitor
November 13: In New York, an 18 year old African American
youth was shot and killed by 5 police officers. The police
fired 20 shots and then "arrested" and shackled him. He was
holding a hair brush [common among Black youths]. The police
claimed they thought thought he had a gun. The corporate media
immediately started publishing the police version of the event
and blaming the victim. CNN played a dirty role in this
reporting. [On November 16, Rev. Sharpton and others will hold
a big rally at the "Justice" Department in Washington DC to
protest the steady stream of crimes against Black people
commonplace at police hands in USA's major cities.] Racism
continues to be a major problem in America.
November 14: At Vancouver airport in Canada , an immigrant
from Poland was tasered by the RCMP, Canada's notorious
thuggish police force. He was reportedly hit 4 times by
the RCMP thugs with tasers transmitting 50,000 kilowatts of
electricity in each shot. The victim screamed repeatedly and
went down dead. The police thugs SAT ON HIM while his body
was squirming with pain.
The whole tragedy was caught on video by a woman who had been
looking at the immigrant's antics. He did not know English and
had been stuck in the wrong room at the airport for TEN hours.
He became frustrated, started shouting and slammed some light
furniture on the ground. That's when the RCMP moved in.
CANADA under Zionist control is no longer the free country it
used to be.

Jamaat al-Muslimeen [News] [Two Fatwas and 2 items
P.O. Box 10881
Baltimore, MD 21234
Jamaat al-Muslimeen Press Release: Fatwas on Pakistan and
Palestine in light of current events.
FATWA on Pakistan : Pakistan's Armed Forces Should Join
Hands with the Pakistani People and Stop
Jamaat al-Muslimeen leader Imam Badi Ali [ Greensboro , North
Carolina ] issued an Islamic ruling [Fatwa] on the latest
situation in Pakistan . [November 16.]
General Musharraf is the most hated person in Pakistan today.
America's main man in Pakistan has been defeated by the
great sacrifices of the Pakistani people under the leadership
of the Islamic movement.
Owing to their defeat, the forces of kufr and
tughyan are trying to replace Musharraf with another
person of their choice.
This is a historic moment for Pakistan . At this time the
armed forces of Pakistan must prove that they belong to
Pakistan and to Islam and not to a foreign power.
Surely within the military, all the way from the lower ranks
to the officers, there are tens of thousands who still feel
answerable to Allah Almighty and are devoted to the Qur'an
and the Sunnah.
Pakistani people are demonstrating in the cities and the towns
for their rights under Islam. Their peaceful protests have
been met with despicable and barbaric acts of police violence.
We urge the military forces of Pakistan to rise up and join
the Pakistani people in the struggle for independence,
integrity and decency under the Law of Allah Almighty.
Already hundreds of Pakistani troops refused to fight the
Islamic forces in Waziristan and Swat.
Rise up! Soldiers of Allah! and defeat the program of
Imperialism and Zionism.
FATWA on Palestine : Gaza Fighting is a Red Signal:
Palestinian Unity is Required Under Islamic Law. Stop
In a second Islamic ruling [Fatwa], Jamaat al-Muslimeen leader
Imam Badi Ali urged the Palestinian people to unite:
Under Islamic Law, unity of the Palestinian people against the
Zionist enemy is required.
Yasir Arafat is a national legend. He does not belong to any
one group. Hence the attempt to use the rally in Gaza to abuse
and attack Hamas was certainly a Zionist ploy.
We urge the Palestinian people to remember that that they are
in the land of revelations from Allah sent to Moses and Jesus,
peace be on them, and Masjid al-Aqsa which is exalted by its
reference in the Qur'an.
Everything which happens in Gaza or any other part of
Palestine affects not only all Palestinians and all Arabs but
the entire Muslim world.
We urge the people and their leaders not to issue hasty and
Unity is the call of Islam. It is the Command of Allah
Almighty. It is the Example of the Prophet, pbuh.
Any attempts to subvert Muslim unity and to create strife and
bloodshed between Palestinians should be seen as an Israeli
move and must be condemned and stopped.
Spread the Word: Imam Siddique Abdullah Hasan is Unjustly
on Death Row
[With thanks to Sis. Amatullah in Toledo , Ohio .]
Br. Hasan's case is now available on a web site devoted to
the struggle to set him free. Please visit"
This Imam deserves your support. Jamaat al-Muslimeen is with
him. Readers of the web site can download a powerful brochure
which is well designed for large scale distribution. [Click
on "brochure" at the top of the web site. A book on the
Lucasville uprising is available and unmasks the tragic
suffering of inmates in prison which sparked the upheaval.
In Maryland , Sis. Elisabeth and Masaud Khan's family had
their Bank Accounts closed down by Citibank: Please call the
Bank and Protest
Remember Masaud Khan who was sentenced to 90 years in prison
by an American judge for allegedly visiting a "militant" camp
in Pakistan ? Now we find that his family has been harassed
in a peculiar new way the Bush administration has cooked up.
It was noted earlier that the bank accounts of Lisa Abdel
Sattar [in New York ] were closed down. That led to the
discovery by our rep that Masaud Khan's mother, Elisabeth,
and her entire family have had their accounts similarly closed
down by Citibank.
This mistreatment of the family of a prisoner speak of
Stalinist and Zionist behavior. Sis. Elisabeth, a White
Muslimah, and her family are citizens of the U.S. and have
not been charged with anything. They have had this account for
many years. This bank action is a secret violation of her
rights as a citizen. The bank refused to give any explanation
for its behavior.
Time has passed since this happened: She was perhaps too
stunned to do anything about it. It is our duty as a Muslim
community not to be silent about this violation. This arrogant
oppression must be protested.
We urge readers to call Citibank and protest.
The number of Citibank is 202-857-6840. Ask for LaTonya
Winston, Vice President, Financial Center Operation Manager,
or whoever is in charge. If no one picks up, leave a message
of protest on the voice mail.
The sister's full name is: Elisabeth Khan and the bank is in
the Gaithersburg , Maryland area.
Live on WPFW Radio with Br. Hodari:
by New Trend's Media Monitor
Pakistan Inside Story: U.S.-Israeli Designs:
Thwarting People's Islamic Will thru Bhutto/Musharraf
On November 14, during his morning rush hour radio program on
WPFW, Br. Hodari Ali had Dr. Kaukab Siddique speak at 7 AM
and questioned him about the latest situation in Pakistan.
Br. Hodari's live radio program reaches an important
audience, the highly politicized people of Washington , DC.
The main points Dr. Siddique made are as follows:
Musharraf has been thwarted by the Islamic movement in
Pakistan. In the north he faces a popular armed uprising. In
the cities, he is the most unpopular person.
Instead of letting the Pakistani people achieve their Islamic
aspirations, the U.S. is trying to thwart them by sending in
Benazir Bhutto to create a fake civilian "democratic" front
for Bush's hegemonic program.
The corporate media in America are presenting Benazir as THE
opposition. They ignore the fact that she is feudalist and
has been extremely corrupt when she had a chance to rule.
She is very unpopular but is trying to feed off the general
frustration with Musharraf in the hope that people will
follow her to get rid of Mush. Benazir will be working for
the U.S., not for Pakistan or Islam.
If Mush doesn't want to go, then we'll have a Saddam or
Somoza type of situation with Bush trying to get rid of his
own man. Another general is already waiting in the wings.
The Islamic resistance in the northern areas is giving a hard
time to the Pakistani military. The situation could develop
in a direction where the U.S. would send its own troops
The result would be a major upheaval because Islam is much
stronger in Pakistan than it is in Iraq.
Behind the American moves is Israel which wants to sabotage
Pakistan 's nuclear program. American moves are in fact
Canada's Shame: Innocent in Prison for 17 months on a Fake
Case: Wife, Sis. Cheryfa, Fought back
by New Trend's Media Monitor
On November 5, 2007 Abdul Qayyum Jamal, 44, a laborer from
Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto, was released on bail after
charges of a bomb plot against him were dropped. He was held
in prison, under severe conditions, for 17 months.
He will be brought back to court once the trial of 16 other
young Canadian Muslims begins. Canada 's justice is a big
farce; hence the Muslims will continue to be held till the
government has stitched together some kind of a story to try
and convict the youths.
Jamal's wife Cheryfa, a convert to Islam from Nova Scotia
[east coast of Canada ] played a key role in raising funds
for his bail. On her blog, she has been urging Muslims not to
be faint hearted. She is jubilant that her efforts led to
Jamal's release. There has been an overflow of funds to her
for the prisoners and she says she will use the funds when
the other 16 Muslims need bail money.
The most ridiculous part of the story is that USA Security
took the fake Canadian story about Jamal as the literal
truth. Even the anti-Muslim Globe and Mail paper had
to eat humble pie and wrote: [Don't laugh!]
'The New York Police Department recently mentioned Mr. Jamal
as an important case study in an intelligence report that was
widely circulated this summer. The report was titled
"Radicalization in the West: The Homegrown Threat." [Globe
and Mail November 6]
This is how lies are generated and spread about the innocent
Muslims of Canada and USA . This tragi-comedy is a
continuation of the horrors committed against Arar, a
Canadian Muslim who was sent by the U.S. to Syria to be
tortured. These barbaric regimes work together against
Islam and Muslims.

British Leaders' Massive Program to Stop Steady Growth of
Islam in U.K. : Gordon and Cameron Highlight Racist
November 14, 2007. In the House of Commons, British Prime
Minister Gordon Brown and opposition [Conservative] leader
David Cameron agreed on an agenda against Islam which, when
implemented, would make Stalin and Sharon proud. Here are
some of the highlights:
Purge of all literature available in libraries. If it is
Islamic it should be seen as "inflammatory."
Surveillance of youth clubs and sports organizations [Islam
is a problem in all social institutions]. Purges needed.
Young Muslims are a real threat to the British power structure.
They must be kept on the radar.
"Pre-charge detentions" are being used on a big scale in
Britain . It means a Muslim can be arrested even though there
is no charge against him/her. The charge can be brought AFTER
the detention and interrogation.
"Post-detention" hearings are also in vogue, which means after
a Muslim is charged, he/she can be interrogated further so
that more charges can be brought and others can be involved.
Bootlicker groups [comparable to ISNA, CAIR and MAS in
America ] are being organized/pushed/pressured into forming
coalitions so that "extremists" can be isolated. These
collaborators recently issued a broad declaration against
"extremists," thus showing that they are loyal servants of
the oppressors and willing to help the rulers divide the
Muslims. [Comparable to statements by Johari Abdul-Malik and
Mahdi Bray on C-Span.]
Mosques and the entire system of Imams need to be
re-formulated. Gordon and Cameron want mosques to preach a
tame British version of "Islam."
An " extremist" is one who supports the people of Palestine,
Kashmir , Chechnya , Afghanistan , Iraq , Sudan and Somalia.
A "terrorist" [potentially] is one who says, let us discuss
and try to understand why London underground trains were
bombed on 7/7 in response to the British military occupation
of Afghanistan and Iraq and British support for Israel.
Specifically, Cameron wants Hizb-ut-Tahrir and Hizbullah
supporters to be banned [arrested?] but Gordon says evidence
Shaikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi is a terrorist [supporter] according
to Cameron as is the producer of Al-Manar pro-Iran TV in
Lebanon. Gordon is not too sure about this. The two men
differ on these two points.
CENSORSHIP in " Paradise "
Dubai Deports 30 of Dr. Israr's Students for Qur'anic
The News International of Karachi, Pakistan reported
that the government of the United Arab Emirates [UAE]
arrested 70 Pakistanis in May 2007. In July 30 of them were
deported. They were accused of congregating in their homes to
study and discuss the interpretation of the Qur'an by the
famous [very conservative] Pakistani scholar Dr. Israr Ahmed.
The local leader of Dr. Israr's Tanzeem in Dubai told the
News that mass deportations are feared because UAE sees Dr.
Israr's writings as a threat which could lead to
"Talibanization of Dubai."
The extent of censorship in Dubai can be understood from the
fact that this news took more than 3 months to be broadcast.
The UAE rulers are linked to the U.S. and [in secret but in
detail] to Israel.
PAKISTAN in TURMOIL
Jamaat-e-Islami's Rallies Broken up, Bhutto's "Long March"
faced Police Action, Imran Khan Roughed up by IJT rogues in
Bizarre incident at Punjab University
Pakistani courts are empty. Countless lawyers are in
Musharraf's prisons. The police brutalization of lawyers,
telecast around the world, has humiliated
Benazir Bhutto has stiffened her stance and is now [November
14] calling on Musharraf to step down. Hundreds of her
supporters, including 37 women leaders, have been imprisoned.
By and large her party members have not been treated harshly.
On November 13, Jamaat-e-Islami's public rally in Peshawar
against Musharraf's emergency rule faced a barbaric rampage
by hundreds of policemen. However, some of the protestors
came back after running away and clashed with police in the
side streets. The crowds managed to shield Jamaat leader
Sirajul Haqq from the police while he gave a speech
condemning Musharraf's unconstitutional activities.
In Karachi too the police attacked Jamaat-e-Islami's
rally and arrested 11 leaders and beat up participants. A
Jamaat leader at a reception being held at Premier College
was attacked by gangsters from the ethnic group known as MQM.
Asadullah Bhutto, a JI leader [not related to Benazir]
suffered knife injuries in the attack. Jamaat-e-Islami's 12
offices across Karachi were attacked and ransacked by police
who arrested scores of JI activists.
In Lahore , November 14, a bizarre incident marred the
unity of the opposition to Musharraf. It appears that
some elements of Islami Jamiate Talaba [IJT], a student group
allied to Jamaat-e-Islami, attacked Imran Khan, the
popular leader of Tehreeke Insaf when he visited Punjab
University . They "arrested" him and handed him over to the
police. Students supporting Imran Khan tried to free him and
an extensive clash occurred between the two groups of
students. A Jamaat-e-Islami leader came to stop his supposed
allies from their misbehavior with Imran but was insulted and
told to leave by his "own" students. As the news spread, top
Jamaat-e-Islami leaders, Qazi Hussain Ahmed, Syed Munawar
Hasan [under house arrest] and others strongly condemned the
action by IJT against Imran and sent a delegation to his home
to express sorrow. [Observers say, it appears, that the regime
has successfully infiltrated Punjab University 's branch
Lahore , November 15: Crowds of people including large
numbers of women rallied to protest Imran Khan's arrest.
The police smashed the rally and dragged away the women to
dump them in police cars. The governor of Punjab is behind
these heavy handed methods. Tehreeke Insaf announced that the
Punjab University attack on Imran was carried out by
government agents. The unity of Insaf with Jamaat-e-Islami
will not be affected by this sneak attack, Insaf stated.
Karachi , November 15: Young people supporting Benazir Bhutto
in the Lyari area were ruthlessly attacked by police and
beaten up. Late reports say that the police opened fire
killing two people.

November 12, 13, 14, 15: In a major mobilization, thousands
of Pakistan 's elite army troops carried out an enveloping
movement to control all the key points of entry into Swat.
Most of Swat, a highly scenic region in the north, popular
among tourists, is in the hands of Islamic fighters of Nifaze
Shariat led by Maulvi Fazlullah with big public support.
However the Islamists are lightly armed and no match for
Pakistan 's heavily armed and rigorously trained elite
Pakistani helicopters started attacking the Islamic positions
in the hills on November 12. Four mujahideen were killed and
3 wounded in these initial attacks.
On November 13, Pakistani heavy artillery joined the assault
on the Islamic positions. At least 20 people were killed in
the shelling including some "militants."
On November 14, helicopter gunships moved around ahead of the
advancing military looking for anything which moved. They
shot at a speeding wagon which fell into a ravine killing
all 16 tribesmen in it. Another 26 people, including
civilians and "militants" were killed as the helicopter
On November 15, the army surrounded Maulvi Fazlullah's
village. The Maulvi announced that the people will fight back
and will start guerrilla warfare if necessary.
IRAQ: Keeping the War Away from the American Public:
"Surge" Ends Without Victory
November 16, 2007: According to official U.S. figures [see
"casualties"] 22 U.S. troops have been killed and 77 wounded
in the first 14 days of November. However the mainstream
media have completely blanked out coverage of the war as if
it is not part of the daily news. The "surge" by 30,000
extra U.S. troops has ended unsuccessfully. Large areas of
Iraq are reportedly still under al-Qaeda control. Other areas
are controlled by Sunni "insurgents." The Shia areas are
largely under the control of rival Shia militias. There are
reports of clashes between Al-Qaeda in Iraq and some Sunnis
who have apparently joined the U.S. side in the hope of
receiving large sums of money and new weapons. They have
suffered heavily at the hands of Al-Qaeda and in turn have
helped the U.S. kill scores of Al-Qaeda [all are Iraqis].
Large areas of Baghdad have been cleansed of Sunnis by Shia
militias. During the last one year, hundreds of thousands of
Sunnis fled to Fallujah and other cities in the west after
Shiite death squads killed hundreds. The U.S. helped in the
cleansing of Sunnis by arresting people en masse and putting
them in a concentration camp.
On November 7, 2007 FOX TV reported that the U.S. released
500 of these Iraqis but is "still holding 25,800, of whom
17,000 are from Baghdad."
Al-Qaeda-in-Iraq seems to be strongest in Diyala province and
the Mosul area as well as in various other areas. U.S. forces
are no longer trying to force their way into Sunni strongholds
and are keeping to their fortresses and bases. Hence the
fighting has tapered off to some extent.
Iraqi suffering is extremely high and millions have left
On November 5, U.S. marines withdrew from Fallujah but will
remain in the surrounding areas in case Al-Qaeda tries to
retake the city.
Poland Honors Victims of 1940 Katyn Massacre
Agence France Presse
Poland's President Lech Kaczynski paid homage Friday to
thousands of Polish soldiers who were killed in the Soviet
Union after being captured by the invading Red Army in World
War II. In a ceremony at the tomb of the unknown soldier in
central Warsaw , Kaczynski awarded posthumous promotions to
the 22,500 members of the military who in 1940 were massacred
in the notorious Katyn forest and other areas. "This is an
act of remembrance for our heroes, their families and the
entire nation," Kaczynski said.
The Katyn Forest Massacre
David Paterson Mirams
Katyn Forest is a wooded area near Gneizdovo village, a short
distance from Smolensk in Russia where, in 1940 on Stalin's
orders, the NKVD shot and buried over 4,000 Polish service
personnel that had been taken prisoner when the Soviet Union
invaded Poland in September 1939 ... In 1943 the Nazis exhumed
the Polish dead and blamed the Soviets. In 1944, having
retaken the Katyn area from the Nazis, the Soviets exhumed
the Polish dead again and blamed the Nazis ... In 1989, with
the collapse of Soviet Power, Gorbachev finally admitted that
the Soviet NKVD had executed the Poles, and confirmed two
other burial sites similar to the site at Katyn.
