Obama Tested by Min. Farrakhan, Fails, Threatens to
Re-invade Iraq, Attack (not Bomb) Pakistan
February 27, 2008: Barack Obama had a chance to show his
independence and his reliance on public support. He failed
miserably. Minister Farrakhan, without endorsing him, had
spoken words of support for Obama during a speech on Feb.
24. Obama was asked, during his debate with Hillary Clinton,
about Min. Farrakhan's remarks. He fumbled, then he mumbled,
then disassociated from the Minister in a way which can only
be described as disgraceful. He more or less accepted the
assumption that Farrakhan is anti-semitic and a bigot!
Evidently Obama has not heard a single speech by Farrakhan
in the last 20 years, or, more probably, Obama is totally
controlled by the Israeli lobby.
Hillary was not satisfied with Obama's rejection of
Farrakhan. She wanted a repudiation of Farrakhan, and Obama
easily obliged her.
If Obama is supported by the people, and not by America's
Jewish lobby, he could have said:
1. We have freedom of expression. Min. Farrakhan has the
right to say what he wants.
2. It's not true that Farrakhan is anti-semitic.
3. Why don't you ask McCain to denounce 'Rev' Hagee who daily
spews war and hatred against Muslims.
In addition to the rude response about Min. Farrakhan [sheer
bad manners, as Farrakhan is his elder by many years], Obama
also claimed that he would go back into Iraq if al-Qaida
starts re-formulating itself there. McCain correctly pointed
out that al-Qaida is already there: It's called
al-Qaida-in-Iraq! Thus Obama is certainly not against
Obama also renewed his threat of military intrusion into
Pakistan if "actionable intelligence" is available. He forgot
that Bush's military adventures were also based on what Bush
claimed was "actionable intelligence."

100 Books campaign:
Our Recommended Reading for March 2008.
Following our book campaign launched by Sis. Karen English,
Secretary General of Jamaat al-Muslimeen, we recommended The
Autobiography of Malcolm X in January and Bury my
Heart at Wounded Knee for February.
The selection for March is: Incidents in the Life of a
Slave Girl by Harriet Jacobs. The suffering of slave
women in America was much worse than that of men and included
systematic and casual rape. One woman fought back, against
overwhelming odds, USING ONLY HER MIND, and won. The book
also includes, parenthetically, the suffering of the Black
community at the hands of slavers following the insurrection
by Nat Turner. It is comparable, in some ways, to the
suffering of Muslims after the uprising of Osama bin Laden.
Supporters are urged to remember that regular [daily], though
brief, study of the

2. Al Jumuah magazine published from Madison,
Wisconsin by Hassen A. Hassen Laidi, Muharram 1429 issue. We
have received a package of these magazines. The production
and layout is very good. It covers nutrition, prayers,
parenting and various religious issues. The magazine seems to
have avoided the influence of bootlicker organizations [other
than an ad from NAIT] and hence deserves distribution.

History in the Making
First Anti-Zionist, Anti-Rushdie Rally in Baltimore:
Muslims Condemn Meyerhoff as Center of Hate
February 26, 2008 saw the first Islamic rally in Baltimore
which was openly anti-Zionist. The Muslims were peaceful and
disciplined and came out in greater numbers than at the
January protest against Madeleine Albright at the same venue.
The protesters strove to educate non-Muslims about the
fraudulent nature of Rushdie's writings.
As the Muslims, men and women, old and young, picketted in
front of the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, their numbers steadily
grew. They were chanting: "Rushdie, Rushdie, Shame on you"
as the wealthy, largely Jewish, crowd moved into the Hall
where Rushdie was to be brought under maximum security.
Then Sr. Nadrat, one of the organizers, shouted on the
megaphone: "Takbeer: Allahu Akbar." "Takbeer: Allahu Akbar."
"La illaha ill Allah: Muhammad Rasul Allah."
After that they were really fired up. Waving placards and
distributing a Jamaat al-Muslimeen statement, the Muslims
chanted non-stop for a full hour. The Meyerhoff crowd was
mesmerized and moved quickly into the hall, often behaving as
if an army of Muslims had descended on the area. The
"Freedom of Speech,
Not hate speech!"
"Honor the Prophet,
Expose the liar!"
"Salman Rushdie, wake up, look
"We deplore your filthy book"
"Salman Rushdie, have you heard
Satanic Verses is absurd"
"Khyber, Khyber ya Yahood,
Jaish-e-Muhammad Saufa Ya'ood"(1)
"Salman Rushdie, shame on you.
Liar, Bigot: Shame on you."
The chants were interspersed with takbeers, and reciting of
kalima. Various activists pointed out:
"Rushdie hates 1 billion people."
"Zionism is Racism. Down with Zionism."
An official Jamaat statement was issued via megaphone. Its
The protestors were at a busy traffic intersection. As the
rally became more spirited, car drivers stopping at the light
wanted the anti-Rushdie statement which activists on both
sides of the street were distributing. Thus many in the
general public were reached.
Rushdie insulted Prophet Muhammad, peace be on him, Jesus
[p] and all the prophets of God. He lacks basic decency. He
even insulted his own father. He is a shameless creature and
should not have been invited to a center of culture.
The only reason he was invited is his book against Islam, a
tawdry production lacking literary merit.
Meyerhoff, Villa-Julie College, WYPR Radio united to honor
Rushdie. The Zionists exposed themselves as haters
First Albright and now Rushdie got "honors" at the Meyerhoff.
Thus Baltimore's main cultural center was turned into a
center of hate and ugly divisiveness.
Muslims of Baltimore oppose the Zionist hate campaign.
If the Zionists do not stop attacking Islam, we will counter
by honoring the Waffen SS.
Above all, Rushdie and the Zionists hate Islamic women. Their
abuse targets veiled women and the blessed Ayesha Siddiqa,
r.a., leader of Muslim women. Our sisters will defeat the
(1) This slogan, from an Arab brother, means; "O Jews!
Remember Khayber? The army of Muhammad is coming back."
Khyber was the great fortress of the Jews which was stormed
by the Islamic army led by the Prophet, pbuh. The heroic
exploits of Ali, r.a., at this battle are chronicled in the
FIRST TIME: ANTI-ZIONIST RALLY ON COMMERCIAL TV:
WBAL-TV (Baltimore's Channel 11), the city's most widely
watched channel covered parts of the rally during its 11 PM
news report. The reporter noted that the protesters were
"interracial," and were objecting to Rushdie's insults
against both Muhammad and Jesus. (Peace be on them both.)

Ameer of Jamaat al-Muslimeen
Islam means peace. This peace begins in the heart and soul
with the acceptance of Allah Almighty as the source of Truth
We must be at peace with:
1. Our spouses.
2. Our children.
3. Our relatives.
4. Our neighbors.
5. Our communities.
6. All of humanity.
Remember that most people in America are victims of the
corporate-Zionist power structure Don't blame the common
prostitute or the misled young man. Mass culture coming out
of Madison Avenue, Wall Street, the Pentagon, Hollywood
creates waves of consumerism leading to debt, corruption and
conflict. Until the source is understood and defeated, the
people will continue to suffer.
The people of America are definitely not the enemies of Islam
and Muslims. The idea of "islamophobia" was concocted by
little upper class cliques in imitation of the ADL's hunt for
"anti-semitism." This is not England where Muslim immigrants
have been hurt physically by White racists and Islam-haters.
Here the massive corporate-Zionist juggernaut ground to a
halt and could not bring about any significant hatred against
Muslims and Islam. Our problems come from the rulers, not
Remember that America is the land of Malcolm X where millions
have seen his pride in going to Makkah for Hajj. This is the
land in which countless women have given up the Euro-American
way of life, embraced Islam and took the hijab. In cities
like Philadelphia and New York one can see on Eid to what
extent INDIGENOUS women [not immigrants] proudly
Agents of the regime, with Muslim names, have brought the FBI
into Mosques and Muslim communities. These frauds with beards
and caps have taken our children to the Pentagon and licked
the boots of Rabbis and Zionists. These agents of Shaitan
have brought the leaders of American kufr into the
mosques. Ultimately the Zionist woman, Albright, held
responsible by many for the mass death of Iraqi children, was
brought to Baltimore's biggest Islamic Center and honored
These activities of munafiqs could give the impression
that the Muslims of America have completely collapsed and
have accepted KUFR while keeping their Muslim names. However
the self-seeking munafiqs who are indulging in these
activities of taghoot-worship constitute a tiny minority of
America's Muslims. Look at the evidence. Look at who are the
leaders of Muslims of America and ask yourself, can one
imagine them licking the boots of "massa" in the White House
and issuing statements about "terrorism" while ignoring the
bombing of Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan, Pakistan and
Somalia? We are proud of these leaders who have support among
the country's Muslim communities:
What about sisters? Do you think they will support the
munafiqs? Or the "Islam" Bush wanted to fabricate?
No way! Think of:
Imam Jamil Abdullah al-Amin
Dr. Omar 'Abdel Rahman
Dr. Ali al-Timimi
Dr. Abdulalim Shabazz
Dr. Alauddin Shabazz
Imam Warith Deen Umar
Imam Badi Ali
Imam Ali Siddiqui
Imam Muhammad al-'Asi
Br. Sulayman Kurter
And many others. Of course, TV will not cover them, other
than to condemn them. Some of the brothers are in prison but
their spirit is alive and well among the people.

Sure we want peace! We don't hate anyone, not even the Jews,
though they have done dirt on our religion and continue to
fund the terrorist entity known as Israel.
Peacefully, we must stand against oppression and against
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are the best people the
kafir system has to offer. We admire their eloquence
and their wit but we know they are on the wrong path and can
never save America. In fact they are the sign that the
taghooti system is going down. We don't need either
the Democratic Party or the Republican Party, just as our
leader, Muhammad Mustafa, pbuh, did not accept either Abu
Lahab or Abu Jahal.
We do not want divisions between Hispanics and Blacks. and
Whites. We as Muslims must stay away from the racial
foundations of the American political system. We cannot
endorse war against the Muslim world. We cannot support the
exploitation of Africa. We are not fooled by the "Save
Darfur" propaganda which is a cover for the destruction
Is it that we are naive or living in an unreal world? Look at
the names of the people listed above. One thing they have in
common: They are spiritually pure, politically astute and
uncompromising about the rights of the oppressed and
Why do true Muslims want to stay away from the election drama
in America? The answer is: We have our own agenda:
We have the Qur'an which is the Book of Guidance in all
matters and for all times.
We have the Hadith of the Prophet, pbuh, which shows us how
to understand and implement the Qur'an.
We have the sahaba, male and female (companions of the
Prophet, pbuh) who have shown us what love of Allah and love
of the Prophet, pbuh, means.
The oppressed people, exploited and demeaned by the
Corporate-Zionist power structure, are our potential friends,
in particular the women of America, the people of African
descent, the Latinos/Latinas, the Germans tired of defeat,
and all good people straining to escape the narrow world they
are trapped in.
The Nuremberg Trials and the Holocaust
By Mark Weber
... The Nuremberg enterprise violated ancient and fundamental
principles of justice. The victorious Allies acted as
prosecutor, judge and executioner of the German leaders. The
charges were created especially for the occasion, and were
applied only to the vanquished. Defeated, starving, prostrate
Germany was, however, in no position to oppose whatever the
Allied occupation powers demanded. As even some leading
Allied figures privately acknowledged at the time, the
Nuremberg trials were organized not to dispense impartial
justice, but for political purposes.
Deadly Israeli Cooperation with top Indian industrial
group TATA noted by South Africans
(Letter to the CEO of TATA) Mr. Phonnie Cilliers, TATA South
Media Review Network is dismayed that the Tata Group has
recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Israel's
largest aerospace and defense company, to develop and
manufacture defense equipment. The Israeli government's
apartheid policies against the Palestinians are
well-documented. The recent siege on the Gaza Strip, the
construction of the apartheid wall, and the constant
bombardment of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip are only some
of the ways in which the Israeli government has denied the
Palestinian people basic human rights.
It is almost certain that the missiles, radars, and
electronic warfare systems that Tata is developing with
Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd (IAI) will be used against
the Palestinians. The Tata Group cannot, with a clear
conscience, pledge to co-operate with IAI in this manner.
We call on the Tata Group, together with all other corporates
in India, to impose economic sanctions on Israeli companies,
in the same way that Indian companies had previously refused
to do business in apartheid South Africa. It is only through
the imposition of sanctions that the Israeli government can
be pressured into ending its oppression of the

Missile Attack after Midnight
Pakistan: Feb. 28. At 2 AM in the village of Kalosha,
southern Waziristan, a missile struck a home killing at least
12 people in it. Reports say that those killed were probably
Pakistani Taliban and their Arab guests and their families.
Observers say that this was the second American missile
attack this year in Pakistan. In the previous attack, a
Libyan Islamic leader and his family and/or local families
were killed. The spotting is done by the Pakistani military

Israeli Air Strikes Hit Gaza and Nablus: Baby Among 22 Killed
Over February 26 - 28, Israeli air force hit Palestinians in
Gaza and Nablus killing 22 young people, including a 6 month
old baby named Muhammad.
Palestinians try to fire back with home made rockets which
have little impact. They have killed only one Israeli in
retaliation for the 22 young people killed. [The "Muslim"
rulers are silent. Large "Muslim" armies are sitting on the
throats of their own people. Iran, for all its rhetoric, has
failed to hit Israel or arm the Palestinians.]
Imad Mughniyah: Who Killed Him and Why?
By Badi Ali
On February 12, 2008 Imad Mughniyah was killed in a bomb
explosion in a suburb of Damascus known for its high security
level. He was reportedly top Hizbullah intelligence officer,
and was blamed by the U.S. and Israel for a series of attacks
on their interests. The U.S. placed a bounty of $25 million
on his head.
In spite of the allegations, no evidence was ever produced
against him. He was simply on the wrong side as far as Israel
and the U.S. were concerned. (At one time, he worked for
Yasir Arafat's famous Special Security Force No. 17.)
Imad Mughniyah's assassination has been condemned by
Hizbullah as the act of Israel. Shaikh Nasrallah, the
Hizbullah leader, has promised retaliation against Israel.
The key question facing analysts of the Middle East is about
the significance of the location of the killing in a high
security area of Damascus, Syria. The following points
The assassination was evidently an "inside job," because the
area where he lived is strictly guarded by Syrian security.
It appears that Israel has successfully penetrated
Late reports indicate that Jordanian intelligence might have
played a role on behalf of Israel. The Syrians trust the
Jordanian King and have several times handed over Islamic
resistance fighters to the Jordanian intelligence services.
His widow has pointed the finger at Jordan's agents.
It seems to be an attempt to create a rift between Syria and
Iran, because Mughniyah was apparently held in high esteem
Most importantly, the assassination is a signal by the U.S.
and Israel that Syria will no longer be a safe haven against
The killing of Imad Mughniyah leaves little doubt that the
Arab rulers are no longer merely helping the CIA but are part
of its long fingers to snuff out the lives of resistance
opponents. It was noticeable that Imad was focusing on
opposing occupation forces and toning down internal conflicts
