Scroll down to important World News.

Hillary Clinton and Obama questioned General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker's claims about Iraq and made it evident that the General and the Ambassador are trying to cover up a nasty situation with clever terminology. What we present today is from the American heartland and pulls no punches. Read on:
Joe Cortina, former American paratrooper, charges General Petraeus with crimes against humanity in Iraq. It's a war for Israel, not for America, he says: This is powerful stuff received with thanks via our friend Mark Glenn, a staunch follower of Jesus, pbuh. There are Americans like this, believe it or not. Please scroll all the way down and put on your "seat belts."

Muslim Woman who was Slandered on the Internet by so-called Makkah Learning Center [Annapolis, Maryland] and others, Responds

Letter: Helping Homeless Muslim Women: "My Only Concern is to Please Allah by Helping the less Fortunate"

As Salaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu. May this message reach you in the best of Iman.

My name is Nadia Auxila McIntosh, Founder, Owner of Al-Mumtahinah Home, Registered and incorporated by the state of Maryland as Women Affairs of Al-Mumtahinah Home Inc.

Should you need to verify that information you can request for it from the state (as the name listed above)

I have heard and saw some of the statements being said about me and the shelter. what I have to say to the public is this, go on line and type in WHO IS NADIA AUXILA MCINTOSH. and you will see my story from the beginning.

With all this lies and confusion guess who get hurt: The families and individuals that are seeking assistance. Please for the sake of Allah place all this energy that you are spending to slander and backbite on me on something worth while and pleasing to Allah is actually helping those who are in need that is better for you than focusing on me. Don't you think?

Masha'Allah, Allah has shown us His power and his blessing many times. We were very successful Saturday at our Quarterly fundraising event. Women Affairs of Al-Mumtahinah Home Inc are planning many social service programs for the community at large in the near future. Your Dua'as are greatly appreciated. Visit our website for updates about our progress to better assist our Sisters, Brothers and families in our community.

The Prophet, Sallalahu alaihi wa salaam, says: "Be mindful of Allah; you will find Him before you. Get to know Allah in prosperity and He will know you in adversity; Know that what has passed you by was not going to befall you; and that what has befallen you was not going to pass you by. And know that victory comes with patience, relief with affliction, and ease with hardship (see commentary on forty hadith of Al-Nawawi #19 Allah's Protection)

Surah 41 Fussilat Ayat 34

"The good deed and the evil deed cannot be equal. Repel (the evil) with one which is better (i.e. Allah orders the faithful believers to be patient at the time of anger, and to excuse those who treat them badly) then verily he, between whom and you there was enmity, (will become) as though he was a close friend."

Subhaana Allah, what I am trying to say is, my only concern is to please Allah and what better way to please our Creator than to help those who are less fortunate. My obligations is to call on you to assist me with this as Muslims.

Insha'Allah you are serving the community in some way.
I will call on you to assist no matter what. The most important is the family or individual that needs help.

A true Muslim protects his fellow Muslims first: he/she must want for them what he/she want for themselves and mean it sincerely. Love one another for the sake of Allah.

I love you all for the sake of Allah, say La ilaha illal-lah Muhammadan Rasululah and you do not associate any partners with Allah and you believe in the Angels and the hereafter, then you are my brother and my sister: what ever else you do is between you and our creator.

Why do we judge? I say lets get together during Ramadan, and Eid in one large Local place so we can know one another in every city and state and love one another on this beautiful day.

I am not perfect. However I seek to be in Jannah and want my brothers and sisters to be there with me.

May Allah subhaana wa ta' Allah Forgive us all of our sins. Ameen.
and may you the readers forgive me for saying something that offends you.

Wa salaam wa nur

Yours sister in Islam

AFGHANISTAN: Taliban Spring Offensive: Narrow Miss for Hikmatyar March 25-April 7, 2008: Numerous Taliban attacks are reported in southern, eastern and southwestern Afghanistan. NATO forces are on the defensive and leaving most of the fighting to mercenary Afghan troops. Canadian, British and Polish troops have suffered the most in these attacks.

On April 7, the U.S. air force tried to kill Hizbe Islami leader Hikmatyar in Nooristan. However the Islamic leader had left and 22 civilians were killed in the U.S. attack.

IRAQ: U.S.' Shia Allies Turn on Each Other: Iran Plays Power Broker: Mosul Still Under Siege

After two weeks of fighting between Shia' groups, more than 176 gunmen, 12 U.S. troops and scores of civilians have been killed. Al-Maliki's troops suddenly attacked rogue elements of Moqtada al-Sadr's forces. To their surprise, the Sadr forces counterattacked and captured major segments of Basra city. Al-Maliki had to call in the U.S. air force.

In the second phase of the fighting, U.S. troops advanced into the Sadr city area of Baghdad and suffered casualties. Air strikes by the U.S. hit heavily populated areas. Iran is urging the groups not to fight. Iran has also condemned the rocket attacks on the Green Zone. Moqtada in the meantime is resting in Iran.

Most of the area from Baghdad north to Mosul and the Syrian border remain under control of Al-Qaidah-in-Iraq while Al-Anbar is under Saddam's fighters. Shi'ite troops around Mosul are facing daily attacks.

The chances for peace are receding as the U.S. prepares for fighting in 2009 and Islamic forces re-organize and prepare.

This came a day after militants attacked a compound housing U.S. workers in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa, which followed two recent attacks on oil infrastructure in Yemen and an attempted attack against the U.S. Embassy there March 18. The style and targets of the recent attacks suggest that jihadists, although amateurs, are active in Yemen and are likely to remain active there for some time."

Wisdom from a Christian Friend of New Trend

Dr. King's "Dream" Was Based On Our Nightmare

By Wilmer J. Leon III

Today, April 4, 2008, America mourned the loss and commemorated the assassination of a visionary, a prophet, a true revolutionary, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It was 40 years ago while he was standing on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee with Billy Knolls, Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young, and James Orange that a shot rang out. Dr. King was thrown backwards to the floor and was killed by a single gunshot to the neck.

What has troubled me over the years and troubles me to this day is how Dr. King, the visionary, the prophet, the revolutionary was 40 years ago murdered in the flesh. The man, the human was assassinated at the hands of our government and post mortem his vision, action, and sacrifice has been hijacked, compromised, and relegated to being that of a dreamer.

You see, dreamers are safe. We are comfortable with dreamers. Why? First of all, to be a dreamer you must be asleep. You must be in a restful state. Dreamers are comfortable in that sleep state. Dreamers are docile, easy to manipulate, and non-threatening.

So to cast Dr. King in the light of a dreamer allows the powers that be to convince us that action that comes from clear vision is not necessary. It allows the oppressor to convince the oppressed to be patient, non-revolutionary; yours will come by-and by.

We hear those powerful words "I Have a Dream..." What many of us fail to realize is that Dr. King was no dreamer. He was, as I said, a visionary, not some abstract thinker or philosopher. He was a prophet and a true revolutionary.

The best way to pay tribute to Dr. King and his total sacrifice is to understand what he stood for. Start by reading two speeches. First, read "I Have a Dream." Second, read "Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence." Don't allow others to selectively define Dr. King for you. Read these two speeches and decide for yourself.

As I understand it, and I may be a bit off, is that the original title of the "I Have A Dream" speech was "Normalcy—Never Again." If that is the case, that title, "Normalcy-Never Again" is a real indicator of what is to come. It's a clear statement that what has historically been accepted-what has been normal, i.e. oppression in America will no longer be tolerated.

Dr. King the realist states, "...we must face the tragic fact that the Negro is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize an appalling condition." That was no dream; that was our reality in 1963 and a clear indictment of the social conditions in America at that time. It continues to be the reality for too many in America today. A reality for those children languishing in our inner-city schools, their parents who are losing their jobs and losing their homes, and those unjustly incarcerated in American jails and prisons.

Dr. King the strict constructionist referred to the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence as a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. He stated, "It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned...Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check - a check which has come back marked insufficient funds." Again, no dream in that statement, that's a clear indictment of America!

Dr. King the prophet offered hope by saying, "But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation." He said this because he clearly understood the power of hope; as a minister he clearly understood the power of faith.

He also understood that hope unrealized, faith misplaced results in distrust, disappointment, despair and anger. It leads to revolution. Dr. King the realist said, "We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism." He went on to say, "There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundation of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges." These are the words of a true revolutionary not a dreamer!

He continued, "We cannot be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote." That was the reality then and based upon the events in Florida in the 2000 Presidential election, Ohio in 2004, and the disenfranchisement of voters in the Democratic Primaries in Florida and Michigan this continues to be our reality today. Before Dr. King talks about the dream, he says that we must march ahead. "We cannot turn back. There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, "When will you be satisfied?" We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality." In light of the November 25, 2006 murder of Sean Bell, the March 16, 2000 murder of Patrick Dorismond, the February 4, 1999 murder of Amadou Diallo, we still find ourselves victims of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality, racial profiling, and Driving While, and some times Walking While Black.

The "dream" reference actually comes towards the end of the speech. As Dr. King was close to ending his nine-minute delivery he said, " even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream." It's important to understand that he spoke of the dream in the context of the horrific reality for "Negro's" and the poor that he had just articulated. What makes the "dream" significant is its juxtaposition against America's reality, failures, and oppression of its own citizens.

Dr. King was correct then and proves to be prophetic today. I'll take some license here... We must face the tragic fact that based on the unemployment rate for African Americans, the racial make up of the majority of those incarcerated in America, and the horrific failure of the government's response in Hurricane Katrina"...the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity...the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land."

It's not the "dream"; it's that vision in the context of a horrific reality!

Dr. King's prophecy continued. On April 4, 1967, a year to the day before Dr. King was assassinated, he delivered "Beyond Vietnam: A time To Break Silence." If you replace Vietnam with Iraq, Dr. King the prophet and visionary is as relevant today as he was in 1967.

A few lines of the revised speech would read as follows: There is a very obvious and almost facile connection between the "War on Terror," the illegal invasion of Iraq, and the struggle I, and others have been waging in America. It once seemed as if there was a real promise of hope for the poor through the Peace Dividend from the Clinton administration. Then came the buildup in Iraq, this so-called "War on Terror" and I watched the dividend squandered and eviscerated as if it were some idle political plaything of a society gone mad on war, and I knew that America would never invest the necessary funds and energies in rehabilitation of its poor so long as adventures like Iraq continued to draw men and skills and money like some demonic destructive suction tube.

Five years ago, as America was preparing to go to war in Iraq, White House economic adviser Lawrence Lindsay estimated that the war would cost between $100 to $200 billion dollars. Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz claimed that Iraq could "really finance its own reconstruction." Lindsey went on to say that "The successful prosecution of the war would be good for the economy." Lindsay was removed and the White House "re-estimated" the cost at $50 to $60 billion. The estimated budget authority is now over $500 billion.

Dr. King would continue: Now, it should be incandescently clear that no one who has any concern for the integrity and life of America today can ignore the present war. If America's soul becomes totally poisoned, part of the autopsy must read Iraq. It can never be saved so long as it destroys the deepest hopes of men the world over.

So, as President Bush and Vice-President Cheney continue to fool the nation and misrepresent the truth in a feeble attempt to "unite our country," around this "surge," the "new direction," and the "way forward" in Iraq, remember, those who fail to heed the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them. Dr. King and his lessons are as relevant today as in 1967.

Again, if America's soul becomes totally poisoned, part of the autopsy must read Iraq. It can never be saved so long as it destroys the deepest hopes of men the world over.

Don't take the "dream" out of context. Dr. King was talking about our nightmare!

April 9, 2008

By Joe Cortina

You sir - are a despicable war criminal mass murderer. You are the quintessential serial killer of civilians and a disgrace to your uniform – your country – and your God – if you ever had any honor to God. You have WITTINGLY and WILLINGLY been a MAJOR accessory to one of the biggest crimes of the past century! You may 'believe' in God – but then so does the Devil.
Your superior – Admiral Fallon, said it best when he exposed you for the brown-nosed sycophant you really are – when he identified you as: "an ass kissing little chicken shit" I unanimously second that accurate assessment. Real men despise people like you.
Just how many pieces of silver have the Jews paid you to be our Fuhrer's puppet, General? I hope the price was worth the countless thousands and hundreds of thousands of innocent lives you are responsible for snuffing out – ESPECIALLY THE CHILDREN. You know of course – General – that a vast majority of those helpless innocent victims whose murders you so eagerly ordered were CHILDREN! You know – helpless loveable little kids – like my grandchildren. Do you ever tire of washing the blood off your hands?
You act like your Jewish masters –you talk like them – you murder innocent children like they do in Israel– you lie like them – so – what are you? I think you are at heart, a mirror-reflection of your masters – They, and we both know who we are talking about here, have a name for the goy that are their useful idiots like yourself – even IF you do hold a Doctorate degree – you are STILL their useful idiot – a shabbus goy!

You may have a chest full of medals sir – but not ONE OF THEM was for doing ANYTHING in defense of MY country against ANY mortal enemy of The United States of America. The ONLY truly mortal enemies this country has ever had AND STILL HAVE – are the COMMUNISTS – and their Zionist allies. You have never served my country ONE DAY in harm's way against our TRUE MORTAL enemies sir – NOT ONE DAY!

Of course the Communists were the 'creation of the Godless Zionists whom you serve. THAT IN ITSELF IS HIGH TREASON GENERAL! You have betrayed every informed wise and decent man woman and child in this nation. You are the best civilian murderer and destroyer of sovereign nations that the Jews can buy. You are either a traitor OR a complete imbecile. A traitor if you are aware of what the Jews have done to our freedoms and continue to fight for him OR - an imbecile if you are STILL SO IGNORANT as to not be aware of your treason.

I may not have achieved the power and recognition General – but at least I can hold my head up high – and with HONOR. Unlike you - I served MY country – with honor - NOT the filthy Godless criminal scum in ISRAHELL . Unlike you, sir: - I risked my life and voluntarily placed my self in harm's way with HONOR. Unlike you -General baby butcher – MY conduct caused NO innocent death – no destruction of innocent civilians and no insane war against those who have not done us nor EVEN intended us no harm.

I was training infantry combat troops in preparation for war against a REAL enemy in 1962, General. I was only a lowly Lt. back then – but I did a man's job to the best of my ability and there were REAL enemies then. The best that your treasonous Jewish friends could do back then was to side with ANY and ALL Communist causes and conflicts. That was before the Zionists had gained T-O-T-A-L control of our media - or government – our total finances – our education system – our military leadership – our Congress and finally our President – lock stock and barrel. You were learning how to tie your shoes and read and write then. A LOT of the men I trained died at the hands of those allied with the Jews while you were playing marbles and hide and seek. I PERSONALLY had a hand in the training – as instructor and company commander, of over a thousand men - and there was not one, count them– ONE Jew in that entire mass of young soldiers. Your precious Jewish friends were too busy taunting and spitting on them as they returned home from battling the Communists – those who even did make it back.

IF – you had an OUNCE of integrity or a grain of MORAL COURAGE – you would have stood up to that murdering lying blaspheming Zionist Jewish scum in the White House of SHAME and said: ' HELL NO – I WILL NOT DO THESE EVILS AGAINST MANKIND AND THE LAWS OF GOD AND ALL THAT IS DECENT. But – the morally spineless ass kisser that you are - you could not resist the power and the notoriety – and just DO THE RIGHT THING – could you?
I won't bother with epitaphs of damnation because you have ALREADY damned yourself – and YOU WILL PAY General In this mortal life – or in a greater justice – YOU WILL PAY!
Come on 'peachy' - Are you so vain – or just stupid? Is it that hard to envision an analogous situation here in MY country where a powerful foreign force – say the Red Chinese who lets say - were at the time vastly superior to us in technology and weaponry – decided to 'liberate' us poor backward AmeriKan Yankee fools from our domestic political 'capitalist' oppressors.
Then they just invaded us on some idiotic lie pretext of their security ( death rays) – raped our women – tortured us – murdered hundreds of thousands – made homeless tens of millions – destroyed our most sacred national treasures – left out country in agony despair and ruin and had their lying propaganda media in China inundate their people with lies about how happy we corrupt capitalist fools were about being "liberated" – not "occupied". OH and they had a catchy name for their mega-crime – " OPERATION AMERIKAN FREEDOM" Sound familiar General? Shame on you sir- for promoting that filthy, cruel Zionist inspired lie.
Then of course there would be the Chinese PLA counterpart to you – say we call him General Wang – and this general keeps telling the Chinese press that the PLA must keep the USA in the agony of occupation for another ten YEARS and then ANOTHER TEN YEARS – meanwhile the Chinese government is stealing our natural resources and impoverishing out nation. Our freedom fighters would of course be called "TERRORISTS" (for trying to rid our country of the Communist invaders) Are your lies beginning to 'show' General 'Betrayus'
The PLA would make friends through any means – money, intimidation, fear etc of local AmeriKan puppet country sellers who might be willing to betray their own country and side with the invaders. If any of these treasonous scum were harmed by REAL patriots (what you and your ilk call terrorists in Iraq) it would be depicted in China as more terrorist activity which would then of course justify the PLA leveling entire American neighborhoods or even cities and killing every man woman and child (collateral damage of course – a popular Jewish term) – and then brag about their victory and make heroes of the PLA animals who committed these war crimes in the name of "liberation" . OH and I almost forgot - the PLA never found any 'death ray' weapons as the 'Chairman' of Red China had proclaimed. But of course with so many stupid uneducated masses of dumbed down morons in China – it really didn't matter that the Chinese had murdered millions of innocent people and destroyed a Western culture based on lies and greed. After all the Chinese are Godless Communists and why should they give a rat's ass about the mass suffering of less than human Americans. Am I making you uneasy General?
This is EXACTLY WHAT YOU and our young killers in uniform HAVE DONE IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN (places like Haditha and Falluja sound familiar – General 'Betrayus'?).
You do NOT fight for ME or MY family or ANY learned moral decent American I know. The ONLY people that are 'protecting' by your crimes are the stinking Israelis – and I spent enough time there to see what sadistic treasonous murdering criminal lying godless immoral scum they REALLY ARE!
Ever hear of the USS Liberty massacre General? What's the matter – I thought that we 'fellow paratroopers' had a little more guts than the average guy. Scared that if you ever criticized your cold-blooded murdering Jewish handlers you might damage your precious career? Oh – Excuse me – You are a 4* Gen officer and the men murdered by your Zionist friends were only lowly Navy 'swabs'. How thoughtless of me to even insinuate that you should be concerned with trivia.
I could write a book on the subject – but you get the idea General. IN TRUTH === you ARE nothing MORE THAN A WAR CRIMINAL – a destroyer of civilization – a rapist – a thief – a murderer. You SCUM! YOU FILTHY MURDERING SCUM. You and filth like you are responsible for the deaths of EVERY CHRISTIAN MURDERED BY THE JEWS IN THE MID-EAST AS WELL – and you KNOW IT!
YOU make the Japanese commanders who ordered the 'death marches' at Batan and Corregador look like childish pranksters by comparison to the crimes you have committed in the name of the Jews. I pray that the countless souls of the innocents you have had murdered haunt you for the rest of your miserable cowardly meaningless life. The human misery and suffering of innocent civilians by your hand have not gone unnoticed by God. You can bet on that Mr.!
You are not a 'man'– you are a spineless sadistic ass-kissing worm – and I would be pleased to tell that TO YOUR FACE. IF – you WERE a REAL man – you would have long ago told that miserable stinking war criminal Bush and his cabal of treasonous Jewish/Zionist thugs to go to hell! May God save this country AND OUR HELPLESS VICTIMS from the like of you.
