FOX TV ATTEMPTS Major Incitement and Dirty Propaganda
against Muslims: Prelude to McCain's Campaign
Dear producer of Fox TV
Your two hours long program of April 6, 2008 titled "Jihad,
USA" was not only shoddy journalism, it was a determined
attempt to smear the Muslims of America as potential
terrorists. You brought shady characters like Emerson and
Wafa Sultan to support your cause. You strung together every
possible case of injustice done to Muslims in America and
presented the cases as those of "home grown terrorists." Even
people who have been acquitted were listed.
In each case of the list of "terrorists," you presented the
prosecution story and ignored the defense. Even the "Beltway
Sniper" was presented as an "Islamic terrorist."
You folks are desperate to incite people against Muslims and
Islam. It won't work! Islam is spreading. We don't need
violence or weapons.
We have the Qur'an and the example of the Prophet, pbuh.
You know you cannot stand against the truth of Islam.
Your program, in an attempt to seem to fulfill the ethics of
journalism, gave snippets of response time to CAIR, a
miserable lot who already support the "war on terror." They
have worked hard to support your viewpoint about "terrorism."
To be honest, you should have permitted a thorough Islamic
response for at least 5 minutes out of two hours of your
Fox! you are losing and if you are the best McCain can put
up, he doesn't have a chance.

Jamaat al-Muslimeen's Press Release
The Case of Momin Khawaja
Canada's Behavior towards Muslim Political Prisoner:
Secret Trial after 4 Years of Jail!
We urge Muslims in Canada, the U.S. and around the world to
pay attention to the oppression of Islamic political
prisoners in Canada. One of the most poignant cases to come
to light is that of Momin Khawaja, son of the distinguished
Pakistani scholar Dr. Mahboob Khawaja. His rights are being
denied and Canada's bigoted and racist government has tried
to crush Momin and his family.
Has Momin committed any crime? No! For FOUR LONG years the
government in Ottawa has kept him in prison but its case is
so weak that till now the trial has not even begun. Even the
most corrupt and evil dictatorships do not hold a prisoner
for 4 years without reason and cause. The case against Momin
is being MANUFACTURED; hence the long delay.
LATEST: April 5, the Ottawa Citizen [newspaper]
published information on the case of Momin which indicates
that the Canadian rulers are out to violate Canada's own laws
in their bid to ensure that Momin is convicted. The defense
has been complaining that how can Momin be defended when the
government is holding the evidence in secret. Try defending
anyone against whom the regime's own tainted evidence is not
being revealed! The judge, seemingly flummoxed by the
complaints of the defense, has come up with a novel
"solution." An attorney has been appointed who will be
allowed to look at the "evidence" but can't take it with him
to study it. Then on the basis of this "looking" the defense
will have to conduct its business.
We consider this a shameful game to convince the Canadian
people that a fair trial will be held. The thin veneer of
Canadian democracy hides tremendous hatred against Islam and
Muslims stoked and orchestrated by Zionists in and out of the
Canadian government, media and establishment.
The date set for the trial now is June 23.
In the meantime, Momin has been placed in SOLITARY
CONFINEMENT [as the Ottawa Citizen coyly admitted.] No
Dear Muslims: an innocent Canadian Muslim is being treated in
this shameful manner. Canada's fascist government has taken a
very antagonist stance against Islam.
The least we can do is let Harper know what we think. Write
to the Justice Minister:
New Trend's War Monitor Adds: Canada's attitude towards its
Islamic prisoners is a reflection of its guilt in
Afghanistan. What business does Canada have sending armored
columns to occupy parts of Afghanistan under the banner of
White Supremacy known as NATO? Is there any rational way in
which Canada's occupation of a Muslim country thousands of
miles away can be justified? It is a plain and clear case of
hatred of Islam. Hidden behind the facade of "democracy" is
the hand of International Jewry and Zionism. No wonder Canada
could not tolerate the critical analysis of the "holocaust"
industry by Ernst Zundel, who was sent to be imprisoned in
Germany. Muslims should remember that the forces antagonistic
to Islam work globally. Nothing happens in isolation. When
will Muslims realize this?

April 6, 2008: Imam Badi Ali is involved in organizing
programs for the visit of Ms. Line Halvorsen, Norwegian
activist who is showing her documentary about the injustices
done to Prof. Al-Arian. On April 5 she met the youth

The following poem was presented by Muslim youth at
The Struggle of Dr. Sami al-Arian
From a world of books and students
Al-Arian was thrust into chains and insults.
A man of reason and logic trapped
by Men with no reason
A scholar and a teacher
by agents of hate and fear
Does Al-Arian hate America?
Does he hate Jews?
So why is he in prison?
Any evidence, any commission?
So why is he in prison?
Did he hurt anyone?
Did he defraud anyone?
So why is he in prison?
Because he is a Palestinian!
Because he is a Muslim!
Because he is an honest man!
Because he won't betray anyone!
Because he won't sellout!
See the tears of Nahla!
See the sorrow of Laila!
See the hope in Abdullah's eyes!
How long this anguish of Al-Arian
How long this struggle, this courage
Ya Allah! Give success to our brother
Ya Allah! we pray for his freedom!
Ya Allah! we pray for the freedom of all oppressed people!
Al-Mumtahinah's Successful Fund Raiser for Homeless Women:
Sis. Nadia's Efforts Receive Support
Baltimore: On April 4, a Jamaat representative again met Sis.
Nadia, her husband Br. Abdul Haqq and her two daughters. Once
again a gossip on the Internet is spreading slander against
Sis. Nadia and trying to defend Makkah Learning Center [MLC].
The gossip admits that she has never met Sis. Nadia and she
does not represent MLC. We have tried to check whether any
such person exists with a name as the one used by the gossip
exists, and it appears that it is a made up name.
On March 29, 2008 al-Mumtahinah, a Baltimore city effort to
help homeless Muslim, carried out a successful fundraiser.
The guest speaker was Shaykh Khalid Yasin from Newark, New
Jersey. Sis. Nadia's efforts paid off as the small but highly
motivated crowd donated generously. The fact that women who
embrace Islam are often left homeless is receiving a workable
solution from Sis. Nadia.
In addition to the fundraiser, she is receiving calls from
area Muslims who are donating goods for needy Muslim women
Bootlickers have infiltrated Muslim Communities
Makkah Learning Center [MLC] Supported Zionist Annapolis
Summit: MLC Ignored Rally to Protest Rushdie's Visit:
Slandered Sis. Nadia
Readers might remember that Israel, Bush and Mahmoud Abbas
held a "Summit conference" In Annapolis, Maryland. Its main
purpose was to ignore Islamic representatives of Gaza and the
West Bank. It was a move to fulfill the Zionist agenda.
A bootlicker group of Muslims known as the "Islamic Society
of Annapolis" speaking through its "Makkah Learning Center"
[MLC] actually prayed for the success of this "Summit."
Unbelievable but true how any Muslim can be so low down.
However, here it is in the MLC's own words from their email.
These fools were actually praying for the success of the
"Islamic Society of Annapolis is very pleased that the Peace
Conference is being held in Annapolis. We wish to take this
opportunity to publicly state that we are praying for all of
the participants of the conference."
That means they were praying for the success of Olmert, Bush
On top of that, these Muslims prayed for the success of the
conference jointly with Jews and Christians who supported
this silly event. Here again are the words of MLC:
"On Sun Nov 25, Islamic Society of Annapolis along with
Temple Beth Shalom and First Presbyterian Church participated
in the Interfaith Prayer to pray for peace in Middle-East and
for the success of the Middle-East Peace Conference.... The
event was initiated by Rabbi Ari Goldstein of Temple Beth
Shalom, and then addressed by Imam Mohammed Arafa of the
Islamic Society of Annapolis and Rev. William L. Hathaway,
Pastor of First Presbyterian Church. They spoke about peace
in Midlle-East." [sic!]
Thus they were following the lead of a notorious Rabbi.
However, the Zionists did not accept the bootlicking by these
Muslims and some "reporters" subjected the group to a barrage
of one-sided anti-Muslim questions. These Muslims then
claimed that they are very upset that their services were not
accepted and wrote a "hurt" letter to Goldstein.
Step two: MLC was invited to join the rallies against
Medeleine Albright on January 29, 2008 and
Rushdie on February 26, 2008 organized by Jamaat
al-Muslimeen. No response from MLC. No surprise there.
Step three: MLC launched a slanderous and shameful attack
on Sis. Nadia. No Muslim group has fallen so low as to
attack an African-American Muslimah on the Internet. This
smacks of racism and extreme arrogance. Here is a quote from
MLC's slanderous attack on Sis. Nadia:
"It came to our attention that Nadia Auxila Mcintosh, a lady
from Baltimore has set up a fake organization called Women
Affairs of Al-Mumtahinah Home Inc. and defrauding the people
by seeking donations for this fake Women's Shelter and using
the donations for herself."
Islamic Society of Annapolis and MLC are doing serious damage
to the Islamic cause. Their wealth has blinded them to the
Truth. They should apologize to Sis. Nadia. Silence will
Ex-Terror Detainee Says US Tortured Him
At the age of 19, Murat Kurnaz vanished into America's shadow
prison system in the war on terror. He was from Germany,
traveling in Pakistan, and was picked up three months after
9/11. But there seemed to be ample evidence that Kurnaz was
an innocent man with no connection to terrorism ... But once
he was picked up, Kurnaz found himself in a prison system
that required no evidence and answered to no one ... The
government's own secret files reveal that an innocent man
lost his liberty, his dignity, his identity, and ultimately
five years of his life.

New Pakistani Government's Sugar Coated Pill: Delaying
Tactics for Consolidation
by New Trend's Pakistan Observer
The new Pakistani government led by Gilani is building a
liberal image for itself. It has shown that it wants to undo
the damage done by General Musharraf. Student unions and
labor unions will be legal again. [What! They were not? No
one mentioned that in USA!] Land will be given to the poor.
Military officers "running" big businesses are being
withdrawn. NAB and other contraptions meant to nab political
opponents are being withdrawn.
More good news: The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court was
released from prison in his own house and allowed to go to
prayers. [The government hedged the weightier question of
re-instatement.] Media, especially private TV, will not
Instead of military action in the tribal areas, well-financed
"development" projects will be carried out. [U.S. Aid.]
Even Jamia Hafsa's women's demonstration at the National
Assembly was noticed with the assurance that the release of
Maulana Abdul Aziz may be underway.
Most people did not notice what Gilani places as his TOP
PRIORITY: The war against "terrorism." That's the old
American ploy aimed at attacking Islam and Muslims. [Remember
New Trend's analysis: The real issue is the war against
Islam. The rest is the re-organization of the political
picture to keep the middle classes calm and happy.]
Pakistani middle classes, mostly secular and uninterested in
the fate of the great majority of Pakistanis devoted to
Islam, are easily misled by such sugar coating of the poison
pill. Many have already forgotten that the "elections" were
boycotted by the major force in the country: Jamaate Islami
supported by almost the entire Islamic movement and the new
generation of westernized people accepting Islamic Guidance
led by Imran Khan. The voting pattern was very poor.
Criticism of People's Party has become muted owing to the
sorrow caused by the murder of its leader Benazir Bhutto.
However, this PPP is a feudal force based on medieval
concepts and leadership cults. Similarly Nawaz Shari's party
is also a conglomeration of landlords, feudalists,
industrialists and military types. It has cult support in
Lahore but it has no support in the masses. In Karachi, there
is a vicious network of thugs and killers known as MQM which
with the help of rulers [particularly General Musharraf] runs
key aspects of life in that megalapolis.
In Frontier Province, ANP, a very old opponent of Pakistan's
Islamic ideology, now led by Asfandyar Wali Khan, has the
blessings of Washington. If the Pakistani army can wipe out
the Islamic fighters in the troubled areas of the north, ANP
will have another opportunity to fulfill its founder's dream:
A region to be called Pustunistan based on ethnic biases and
deadly opposed to the universalism of Islam.
The situation in Pakistan comes straight out of Washington's
strategic work book and play book. America denies the Islamic
aspirations of the people and is rooted in the idea that
Islamic resistance and "terrorism" are the same thing.
Caricatures and insults part of ‘Ninth Crusade' -
by Abdullah Muntazir in Lahore
04-Apr-2008, 26th Rabi-ul-Awwal, 1429
Ameer, Jama't-ud-Da'wah Pakistan, Prof. Hafiz Muhammad
Saeed, has said the current blasphemous activities taking
place in Europe are a part of the Ninth Crusade. He said this
war, which has been imposed upon Muslims, is being fought in
every Muslim household. He said the army chief should take a
briefing from the Quraan, before he gives a briefing to
politicians about the ‘war on terror'. He said the West does
not care about ordinary Muslims because it has Muslim rulers
in its grip. He said Pakistan's culture is now being
destroyed like those of Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon, and Syria had
been destroyed in the past.
In his khutbah (sermon) during Salat al-Jumuah
(Friday Prayers) at Jamia Masjid al-Qadsia, in Chowburji,
Lahore, Hafiz Muhammad Saeed said eight encounters of the
wars, which Pope Urban II had convinced Europe to initiate
after insulting the Prophet, sallallahu alaihi
wasallam, and dumping false accusations on him,
sallallahu alaihi wasallam, have as yet taken place.
Israel was created during the eighth confrontation, whereas
the Ninth Crusade was begun after 9/11, and this time around
too, insult and disrespect of the Prophet, sallallahu
alaihi wasallam, is a key ingredient of the conflict. He
said the current Pope is also involved in this conflict., and
his first remarks against the Quraan and Islam were uttered
in Germany more than a year ago, while a few days ago, on
Easter, he baptized an Egyptian murtad (apostate) journalist.
Hafiz Saeed said the war against terror, the Western cultural
invasion, and the imposition of their economic and political
systems upon Muslims, are all part of this crusade. Muslims
have had to fight this war everywhere, even in their own
homes. The moral and social values of Muslims are under
threat, he said, and we must fight this war at all costs. He
urged every Muslim to play his, or her, role in this regard;
to wipe out Western culture from their home; to dress in a
manner which would visibly identify them as Muslim, and to
have their children learn at schools where the system of
education is in harmony with Islamic values. Hafiz Saeed said
the Quraan warns us about the conspiracies of the Jews and
Christians, time and again. At this point Hafiz Saeed recited
a number of aayahs (sentences) from the Quraan according to
which the People of the Book (Jews and Christians) want to
make Muslims like themselves, and thereby become negligent
about the defense of their countries and lands.
Hafiz Saeed said the army chief has briefed the prime
minister and politicians regarding the progress in the war
against terror. He said the army chief should, himself, first
take a briefing about the conspiracies of the enemies of
Islam and Muslims from the Quraan. He said the West has
imposed its own systems upon Muslim nations; they neither
care about Muslims, nor are afraid of them, because they
firmly hold Muslim rulers in their grip through these
systems. Yet, he said, they should know that the current
crusade will end with the destruction of Western economic
and political systems, in'shaa'Allah. He said after
the westernization of Egyptian, Lebanese, Syrian, and Turkish
societies, the process of westernizing Pakistani society is
now under way at a rapid pace. Pakistani girls have begun
wearing clothing which does not reflect the values of our
society. This invasion and storm needs to be stopped,
ISRAEL EMERGES AS INDIA'S MAJOR DEFENSE PARTNER
Advising India on Population Change in Kashmir: Providing
by K. Hamza [writing from India]
In recent months, Israel has emerged as the biggest exporter
of defence equipment to India. New Delhi has extended its
collaboration with Tel Aviv in at least 18 projects of
diverse fields as lightening pods for mirage and Jagur
fighters to submerged launch vehicles for the Navy and micro
guns for the army. Further, in a recent visit of Israel
Defence Minister, Ehud Barak, a major project for joint
development of medium range surface to air missiles has been
reached its conclusive stage.
India's National Security Adviser, Brajesh Mishra, while
addressing to the annual dinner of American Jewish Committee
in Washington had said: "India, the United States and Israel
have some fundamental similarities . We are all democracies,
shaping a common vision of pluralism, tolerance and equal
opportunity. Stronger India-US relations and India-Israel
relations have a natural logic".
During the Indian National Congress Party's rule under
Jawaharlal Nehru, the question of having friendly ties with
Israel was not even discussed. When the hardcore Hindu
Nationalist party, the Bhratiya Janata Party came to power,
the Israel Foreign Minister, Shimon Peres had visited India.
Muslims in India, particularly in Jammu & Kashmir, of
critical of Mr. Peres reported suggestion that, a demographic
change should be brought about to solve the Kashmir problem.
The Zionist clearly meant increasing population of Hindus and
reducing Muslim population which would necessitate evacuation
of the latter from Kashmir. Further more, Israel Foreign
Minister blatantly questioned the patriotism of Muslims
It was after the death of the then Indian Prime Minister,
Rajiv Gandhi, India had quickly established relations with
Israel. Rajiv Gandhi's assassination was allegedly carried
out by Israel in nexus with the separatist movement, the
Tamil Tigers, since Rajiv Gandhi had refused refueling of
American Air Force planes in Bombay when Saddam sent Scud
missiles to Israel during the Gulf war. The truth, sadly, is
that the Tamil Tigers in collaboration with Israel have been
targeting Muslims in Sri Lanka, causing a number of Muslim
casualties. The same fate is awaiting for Muslims in India
due to its Jewish relation.
Since the establishment of full diplomatic relations between
the two countries on January 29, 1992, there has been a
remarkable increase in contacts at the official level-with
the Israel President's visit to India in Janury 1997. In the
summer of 2000, the then External Affairs Minister, Jaswant
Singh, and the Home Minister, L.K. Advani had visited Israel.
The then Israel Foreign Minister, Shimon Peres came to India
twice-in August 2000 and January 2001. Many Israeli
businessmen have already visited India and several firms are
keen to open joint ventures in high technology sectors. L.K.
Advani had sought the expertise and capability of Israel to
suppress militancy in Kashmir. It was since the arrival of
Israeli counter-terrorist forces under the guise of
"tourists", the death toll in Kashmir was increased.
According to the foreign intelligence report, Mossad agents
disguised as tourists are roaming in the valley of Kashmir on
the basis of clandestine understanding between New Delhi and
Tel Aviv. The press alleged that as Israeli agents have
succeeded in suppressing the intifida in occupied Palestine,
Mossad agents ' clandestine operation in Kashmir in tandem
with Indian forces have succeeded to contain the Muslim
agitation to a certain extent.
Israel has provided India with the latest technological know
how to battle separatism in the country's ethnic insurgency
flaring in the far northeast. The trade ties between the
Jewish entity and India could serve as a "gateway to Asia for
Israel". The United Progressive Alliance government in India
is reciprocally aiding Israel's militancy efforts and the
case in point is the recent launching of its spy satellite,
Tecsar, which has the capability to track activities in the
highly sensitive Persian Gulf , especially Iran, in an
apparent attempt to open a path for the United States'
military adventurism on a Neo- con design of "Iranian
Muslims in India are not critical of its diplomatic relations
with any country, but they are apprehensive of the
government's attitude to Palestine people who are subject to
inhuman treatment. There was no a State of Israel in the map
of the world until 1948. Israel is an illegitimate child born
under the midwifery of the British leaders. Earlier, about
half a million Arab speaking Muslims lived in Palestine where
around 60,000 were Christians and 20,000 were Jews under
sovereignty of Ottoman Empire. The State of Israel was
deliberately created by Zionist and fascist forces. According
to the Talmud, the Jewish code of conduct, Israel cannot be
anyone's best friend. Since the creation of a national home
for Jewish people, Jews from other parts of the world
migrated to the land of Palestine, expelling Muslims from
their homeland. The rest is history.
