Republican Desperation: Landslide victory for Obama?
November 2: Gallup Poll is indicating an 8 to 10 point lead
for Obama. Fox TV says it is a dead heat [very doubtful].
McCain's campaign has no sense of direction and little to say
except for personal attacks on Obama. Hidden under the table
is the race card. Republicans even tried to question Obama's
loyalty to Israel by bringing up Obama's meeting with Prof.
Rashid Khalidi many years back. The Republican ploy fell flat
because Obama has solid Jewish American support at every
level. Attempts to bring up Obama's lack of patriotism are
not working because Obama is as keen as McCain to "get" Osama
bin Laden. Republicans think they can win by creating
suspicion and fear. Bush did so much of that and people are
tired of it.
Correction: A reader [Br. Ameen] says that New Trend should
have included Medeleine Albright in its list of national
level Jewish supporters of Obama, and it should have included
Wolf Blitzer of CNN in its list of Jewish media people
supporting Obama at the national level. [Correction accepted!
Also the entire National Public Radio, NPR, network, which
has branches in just about every city and is the biggest line
up of Jews in the media, is supporting Obama
Disrespect for women taken to an extreme degree : No
freedom for Holocaust Critics
A very deep hatred of women underlies the exploitation of
women in America. Most of the major crimes are committed
against women. More than 4,000,000 women are battered enough
every year to have to enter homes of refuge and report to
Larry Flynt's pornographic video of Sarah Palin takes the
cake. A low life like Larry Flynt, who makes his living off
pornography, can insult a family oriented Christian woman and
he is allowed to do so in the name of "freedom
However when it comes to denial, or critical study, of the
Jewish holocaust story, there is no freedom of expression.
Reputable scholars like David Irving, Mark Weber, Charles
Carlson, Dr. Toben, Germar Rudolf and many others are never
allowed on any major media channel if they say anything about
the "holocaust" which does not fit into the "Six Million"
holohoax. [New Trend's editor is not allowed on any major
channel either just for suggesting that both sides in the
World War scholarship should be heard.]
Hypocrisy taken to the Nth degree: A lecture on Values
from Jerry Springer!
November 1, 2008: Jerry Springer produces a TV show which
humiliates the poorest and the most oppressed sections of
American society, many of them Black. He pays poor women and
dysfunctional men to come on TV and talk about their sexual
exploits of the most degrading kind. During the show, fights
take place and women take off their clothes and get cheers
from the crowd.
Jerry Springer spoke at the University of Arkansas on
November 1 and gave a long lecture on the necessity of
support for Obama. In the process he revealed that he is
Jewish. He spoke very patronizingly of Christians and that
"we" should not insult their religion. It was amazing
expression of self-confidence coming from a Jew [American
Jews are less than 2% of the population].

Allah has revealed, and follow not their vain desires, but
beware of them lest they beguile thee from any of that

Most Muslims in this country are being affected by the
powerful assimilative culture of America. They find their
children losing their religion, language and culture. In
response they set up mosques which are like little islands in
a swirling ocean of materialism and corruption.
The other response, in major cities like New York and
Chicago, is ghettoization where people live next to others
from their original culture. It's easy for them to pray
together and keep their culture and language but they have
little or no impact on America and are seen as exotic and
The self-styled leaders of America's Muslims are leading them
into disaster by urging them to affiliate with the American
power structure and are inviting the agents of the
kafir power structure, including intelligence
agencies, into their communities.
In a repeat of the block vote which Muslim 'leaders'
delivered to Bush, an effort is now underway to deliver
Muslim votes to the new "Messiah" of these people.
It is understandable if many think that the election of a
Black leader is history in the making. People are morally
drained by 8 years of Bush and are looking forward to the
dawn of a new era.
Muslims, however, should not be behaving like other people.
If everyone is getting on the bandwagon, that does not mean
it is headed in the right direction.
We have the Qur'an and the example of Muhammad, pbuh. Our
behavior should be based on Guidance from Allah, not on a

Black leaders in KEY positions in his campaign? None! Not one!
He is preparing for a bigger war than Bush and is openly
talking of crushing the Islamic resistance in Afghanistan and
is boasting of going into Pakistan and "getting" Osama bin
Laden. This is a recipe for disaster. If Bush, with a much
larger army and a very aggressive policy could not "get"
Osama,what makes this man think he can do it.
Muslims, including those who are planning to come here and
become Americans, should realize that if they do not have an
Islamic program, they will be shattered by what the forces of
evil are doing to America.
There is much good in America but there is also evil. When we
came here, we could not have known that homosexuality will be
legitimized and adultery and fornication will be glorified.
The price we have to pay for coming here is that we lose our
children to a way of life which defies all decency and
morality, be it Muslim or Christian. Zionism is strangling
the soul of this nation.
Making beautiful masjids is not the solution. Making
overtures to the campaigns of the Democrats and the
Republicans is spiritual suicide. When the mass culture is
controlled from coast to coast by forces hostile to Islam and
all decency, the conservative forms of religiosity cannot
save us, our families or our children.
Maulana Maudoodi put it so beautifully when he explained that
rigid, conservative religion cannot survive. He used the
simile of the boulder and the swirling stream These masjids
of ours are like boulders imbedded in the vast stream of
kufr and tughyan. We are so proud of these
structures but we are unaware that evil is gradually eroding
the foundations of these boulders. After a time, the erosion
will be such that they will tumble into the stream and
disappear forever. This has already happened to many

African Students Demand an End to Imperialist-driven War
in the Congo.
At 16:00 UTC, [Sunday, November 2.] Uhuru Radio will talk
live with Kambale Musavuli, student at North Carolina A&T
University, who recently organized an international week of
campus action to raise awareness of the crisis in Congo.
Musavuli writes "The Congo is the greatest humanitarian
crisis in the world today where nearly 6 million people have
died since 1996, half of them children 5 yrs old or younger
and hundreds of thousands of women have been raped all as a
result of the scramble for Congo's wealth. The United Nations
said it is the deadliest conflict in the world since World
War Two. However, hardly anything is said about it in the
media. Can you imagine 45,000 people dying each month and
hardly a peep from anyone in the age of the Internet? This is
literally what has happened and continue to happen in
Musavuli and his family left the Democratic Republic of Congo
in 1998 when he was 17. He charges "the war in the Congo is
directly connected to the United States, as far as resource
exploitation is concerned. The root cause of the conflict in
the Congo is not more so of an ethnic strife, but more so of
the scramble for Congo's mineral resources.
Islamic Africans attack U.S.-linked institutions in
Somaliland and Puntland
[Souces: Afrol and U.S. news media]
October 29 - The presidential palace, the Ethiopian
embassy and UN offices in Hargeisa, the capital of the
breakaway republic Somaliland, were bombed today in what is
described as the biggest coordinated terrorist attack in the
Horn of Africa so far. At least 21 persons were killed.
According to reports from Hargeisa, car bombs were detonated
in front of these three key institutions, which represent the
state and its main foreign collaborators. The coordinated
attacks bear the fingerprint of al-Qaeda. [Curfew has been
imposed on Hargeisa which suggests that the general public
supports the Islamic attackers.]
Also in neighboring Puntland, an autonomous region in
north-eastern Somalia, two bombers blew themselves up in the
offices of the anti-terrorism unit of the security services
in the capital, Bosasso. Puntland is the power base of Somali
transitional President Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed and has also
enjoyed relative stability.
Puntland [from where the U.S. backed regime was imported into
Mogadishu, Somalia] recently, SECRETLY sold all its mineral
wealth and its ports [as well as that of Somaliland] to an
Australian company. The Australian government claims it does
not know what is going on
Heavy losses were inflicted in attack being reported here.
The regime is not reveaking the exact figures because it
appears that its "anti-terrorism" unit has been wiped out.

My name is Hedaya Jayyousi. My husband Dr. Kifah
Jayyousi was incarcerated three years ago. This case has
taken all of our money, and left me and our 5 children with
nothing. We spent about a quarter million dollars on this
case. Before the trial my husband went out on bail and we
paid the bond company thirty thousand dollars; they also held
some property deeds. After the trial my husband went
The bail bond company is still owed $20,000 and they are
foreclosing on our property and our Muslim friends who had
placed their property as guarantee. We already paid them
thirty thousand. The sad part is that the property deeds
belong to people that stood with us and helped us through
this hardship. We have a hard life; we struggled through a
lot trying to raise 5 kids while husband is in incarcerated.
We are currently living in a property that needs a lot of
fixing but alhamdulillah we survived and we still have a roof
above our heads.
My husband has been convicted on baseless charges and we
are also trying to raise money for his appeal. We used to
live in Irvine, so many of the brothers in California may
I'm writing this letter to ask for help so that the people
that stood with us can get their property back. I'm asking
you brothers and sisters in the name of Allah if you can help
us pay the bond company and may Allah protect you and your
children and family. I have talked to the brothers here and
they agreed that we can accept zakat money. If you need any
further information you can call me at (313) 478-9598 and

Egypt bans international parliamentary delegation from
The European campaign for lifting the siege on Gaza has
strongly condemned the Egyptian government's decision not to
allow a large international delegation of MPs to enter the
Gaza Strip, describing such a decision as practical
participation in the siege.
The delegation was set to depart for Gaza in the first week
of November to see for themselves the deterioration in the
health and educational conditions in the tiny Strip which has
been under a crippling Israeli economic siege since
Lord Nazir Ahmad, head of the delegation, said that they
strongly condemn and deplore the Egyptian decision of denying
them entry into Gaza although the visit was humanitarian.
He added that the international delegation of lawmakers had
the right to see for themselves the miserable living
conditions in the Gaza Strip, underlining – "We expected

to lift the siege, to open the Rafah crossing and to let the
delegation pursue the visit and look into the harsh

chairman of the campaign organizing the visit, also condemned
the Egyptian decision, describing it as "practical

patients so far."
The international delegation of MPs comprises of 53 lawmakers
from Britain, Ireland, Sweden, Greece, Italy, Switzerland,
Scotland, and the EU parliament, in addition to MPs from

Speech at Jamaate Islami's Mass Meeting in
[October 25, 2008.]
Yvonne Ridley Challenges Muslims to stand up for the
Rights of Islamic Women in U.S. Military Prisons facing
Abuse, torture and Rape.
Bush might be gone from The White House soon, but his rotten
legacies will live on. And one of those legacies is his
never-ending War on Terror.
His War on Terror gave birth to the cages of Cuba - to
Guantanamo Bay where hundreds of our brothers were sold like
slaves to the Americans.
I wish this obscenity had happened somewhere else, but the
stark reality is retired General Pervez Musharraf and his men
got rich on the back of this vile trade - he even admitted it
in his autobiography.
How could Muslims sink so low as to sell their brothers like
parcels of meat?
Because of this an international organisation called Cage
Prisoners was launched from London and its work initially
focussed on the torture and detention of those brothers held
in Guantanamo, a boil on the face of humanity.
I became one of the patrons of Cage Prisoners and tried to
raise awareness to get justice for our brothers in Islam.
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever believe that sisters
would also be swept up in the War on Terror. Never did I ever
in my darkest nightmares imagine they would be brutalized,
raped and tortured ... but they have.
But what still catches my breath is the disinterest expressed
by brothers and sisters across the Muslim world to the plight
of sisters ... and I am talking about all corners of the
Muslim world, including here in Pakistan, a country I have
grown to love and regard as my second home.
I salute those dear sisters in Lal Masjid who were mocked and
ridiculed for trying to close down a brothel - they were
mocked and ridiculed for their piety and many of them were
martyred as they fought for common decency.
How did we allow that to happen? How did we sink so low?
Newspaper columnists here in Pakistan sneered at their
efforts and called their work the Talibanisation of Pakistan.
Anywhere else in the world they would have been praised as
feminists and as righteous individuals for trying to close
down the sex industry which clearly exploits women.
But it's not just the heroic sisters from Lal Masjid which
brings me here today.
Five years ago when Cage Prisoners first brought the mystery
disappearance of Dr Aafiya Siddiqui to the attention of the
media no one listened?
OK - five years ago few of us believed that the Bush
Administration could really sanction the kidnapping of a
mother and her three children.
I know because I was one of those doubters but what changed
for me was my own journey to Guantanamo earlier this year.
For some bizarre reason the Americans agreed to give me and
film-maker David Miller unprecedented access to the world's
most notorious prison - and even more amazingly they let us
I am probably one of the few Muslims who flew half way across
the world to get to Guantanamo without having to be shackled,
shaved and abused.
The experience as brief as it was left me shocked – in fact
as I left the maximum security block at Camp Delta one of the
young guards asked me how I felt. I told him I was
speechless, lost for words. He said proudly: Yup, it's
awesome isn't it?
And that is basically the sentiment in there from the most
basic recruit, through to the medical staff, the
psychiatrists right up to the Rear Admiral. There is nothing
temporary about Guantanamo. Do not expect it to be closed
down when the new man steps into The White House.
One of the first people I interviewed when I returned home
from Guantanamo was brother Moazzam Begg, a British detainee
who went through untold atrocities at the hands of the
so-called civilised American military.
He was kidnapped in the middle of the night from his home in
Islamabad and sold to the Americans for 5,000 dollars.
And while we've spoken many times before this latest
interview triggered something new inside me.
I had read his book Enemy Combatant and often heard
him talk about the screams of a female prisoner in Bagram but
in truth, while I would never question Moazzam's story, I did
assume that what he heard was a series of pre-recorded tapes
performed by actors as part of the CIA/FBI mental torture
So in this latest interview I threw this theory at Moazzam
and he responded saying he knew the screams were real because
other brothers in Guantanamo talked about it when he arrived
there and, more importantly there were eye witness accounts,
brothers who had actually seen the woman detainee.
Bagram, he said, was far worse than anything in Guantanamo.
Did you know four Arab brothers escaped from Bagram in July
2005? Did you? Well this is something the Americans do not
want you to know, but they did and when they fled that hell
hole one brother gave an interview to talk about the plight
of one prisioner in particular.
This prisoner was the woman that Moazzam Begg heard scream
throughout the night, every night without fail. When the Arab
brother saw her he said she had clearly lost her mind. She
had been raped, abused and used without mercy by those dogs
Her state was so wretched the male detainees in Bagram went
on hunger strike.
Without giving away sources, we soon established that the
woman in Bagram was registered in US intelligence documents
as Prisoner 650 - I was horrified. I suddenly realised that
the screams Moazzam had heard were real.
As you know I was held in Afghanistan by the Taliban for 10
days. They were 10 terrifying days even though I was given
the key to lock my own door, even though my captors always
knocked and asked permission to enter my room. Whenever I
needed to use the bathroom, I only had to ask and I was
escorted to the bathroom and an armed guard remained outside
while I washed and showered in complete privacy. But no such
respect and decency was given to Prisoner 650 - no, this
sister was brutalised. She had to share the same open toilet
as the men and there were no closed doors, or shower curtains
when she wanted to wash.
Back in Britain, Lord Nazir Ahmed answered my call for help.
Not only did he submit a series of hard-hitting questions to
the British Government, he roused the Pakistan media in
London and announced that if Prisoner 650 was not released
then he and I would go to the gates of Bagram and demand
It was inevitable that people would assume Prisoner 650 was
Dr Siddiqui and the awkward questions started to be asked
after more than 100 media turned up at our scrambled press
conference. A Cage Prisoner report was handed out giving the
wider picture of the disappeared in Pakistan.
Then suddenly Dr Aafiya Siddiqui emerged as though a magician
had pulled a rabbit out of a hat - she emerged in a dazed and
confused state outside the Governor of Gardez's offices
Imagine that ... FIVE years after her disappearance in
Karachi. And according to the FBI she was carrying in her
handbag pieces of bomb-making equipment and photographs of
various landmarks in New York City.
What nonsense and how dare the FBI insult our intelligence
this way. Of course the FBI lost much of its credibility when
its chief J Edgar Hoover was r evealed to be a transvestite
who preferred to wear a red dress and be called by the name
Hoover, probably one of the most powerful men in America was
the originator of dirty tricks campaigns, lies and deceits
and his legacy lives on.
Even today it seems FBI Agents live in a fantasy world but
instead of mincing around in red frocks they spend their time
dressing up the truth with layer after layer of lies.
This was quite evident with the story of Dr Aafia Siddiqui.
It is no coincidence that Cage Prisoners had raised the issue
of Dr Siddiqui less than two weeks before.
Many of you know Dr Siddiqui's story - she had been shot by a
US soldier at close range after she managed to overpower one
of his colleagues and fire a gun twice. This woman is less
than 70 pounds. This story is rubbish.
I am told she is in constant pain - a testament to the work
of the medical butcher in Bagram air base who calls himself
But you know what makes this even worse - while our sister
lies in agony awaiting to be tried for nonsense charges in an
American court, two of her children, a babe in arms and
toddler, are still missing. Where are they?
And I'll tell you something else which should make your blood
run cold. The Americans have now admitted that the Grey Lady
of Bagram does exist.
But Dr Aafiya Siddiqui is NOT Prisoner 650, the Grey Lady of
Bagram. We still do not know who is Prisoner 650. We do not
know where she is,
Oct. 29 rally in Islamabad. Pakistanis expressing their shame
and guilt that this great daughter of Islam was abducted,
abused, raped and imprisoned and the Muslim ummah did
nothing. "We are ashamed" say the placards. The one in front,
with the traumatized picture of Dr. Aafia states: "Dr. Aafia
asks: Is there no Ibn Qasim in this nation." Muhammad ibn
Qasim was the 17 year old mujahid who came all the way from
Damascus during the Ummayad era to rescue a Muslima who had
been abducted by the Hindu Raja, Dahir, the ruler of Sind,
now a province of Pakistan.
Sis. Yvonne's speech in Islamabad continues : and we do not
know how many other pakistan women are being held as female
enemy combatants - yes, that is what the pentagon calls them.
Female Enemy Combatants.
Today I am begging each and every one of you, as your sister
in Islam, to help me find Prisoner 650.
If you remain silent I may never find her. But I tell you
something now - I can hear her screams and when you go to bed
tonight so will you.
Have we all sunk so low that the cries of this sister remain
unanswered? The time has come when the people of Pakistan
need to restore pride to this great country. You here today
can set the agenda. You here today can make a change. You
here today can get rid of those rotten politicians and their

Muslims Students Face Police Atrocities: India's Version
of "War on Terror"
(byK Hamza, India. Exclusive to New Trend)
The Intelligence Agencies and the Anti Terror Squads are
harassing and putting hardship on highly educated Muslim
youths in many cities of India under the pretext of fighting
terrorism. In the wake of serial blasts occurred in the State
capitals of Gujarat, Madhy Pradesh, Karnataka and Rajasthan,
which are under the rule of hardcore Hindutv party., crack
down against the activists of Students Islamic Movement of
India (SIMI) is going on, and a number of suspected Muslim
youths belonging to varied activities under different Muslim
organizations in the country are detained by the police for
interrogation. Even if they have no apparent role in the
recent blasts and related terrorist activities, they are
being hunted and kept under police custody for their "
fundamentalist frenzy" such as attending five-time regular
congregational prayers at mosques and participating in the
Qur'an study classes which are addressed by their
The striking point in all these cases is that the Police and
the intelligence personnel are not familiar with the Arabic
terminology such as "Jihad, Kufre, and tharbiyyath" etc which
according to them are anti-national and anti-Hindu. The print
and electronic media which are indulging in malevolent
propaganda campaign against Islam and Muslims, often distort
the truth and exaggerate the police version of the incidents
and the television channels repeatedly present viewers with
graphic footage of horrifying scenes of the dastardly acts.
Newspapers exaggerate actual incidents under banner headlines
to achieve sensationalism which often adversely affect
communal harmony. The incorrigibly incompetent police
personnel would depend on hoax phone calls, e-mails and SMS
which they receive immediately after the blasts and conclude
their reports based on "reliable sources".
The Police and Intelligent Agencies are taking to custody
some highly qualified Muslim professionals like Engineers and
Doctors on mere suspicion, but court release them due to
prosecutors failure to substantiate charges about their
involvement in the terror acts. But they were being
subjugated to harsh treatment and torture in the name
SIMI was banned in India under the Unlawful Activities
(Prevention) Act, 1967 and the ban was imposed for the first

allegation that Muslim youths all over the world are members

logistic and financial support in waging Jihad against the
existing regimes in the world. It is undoubtedly a conspiracy
hatched by Zionist lobby with a sinister political agenda to
contain and prevent the Islamic revolutionary trend and
aspirations that emerge in the contemporary
In Gujarat, many explosive devices were recovered from
various places by the bomb squads on the very next day of the
major blasts took place in the city. Oddly, these unexploded
devices were planted by Modi's police themselves to reinforce
their ant-SIMI onslaught and justify their mass arrest of
SIMI activists. In the recent past, there had been incidents
of bomb explosions in the BJP ruled States, while the party's
siblings such as Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh and Vishwa
Hindu Parishat were manufacturing the devices. Further,
explosive materials were also seized from the localities of
these Hindu outfits. In a serious case of blasts in Nandod in
April 2006, the Hindu outfit, Bajrang Dal activists died and
some injured seriously while making bomb. In an apparent bid
to implicate SIMI workers in false cases, fake beards,
moustache, pajama kurta and caps, and which Muslims usually
wear, were found and recovered from the dead bodies of the
Hindu perpetrators at the site of the blasts.
The true agenda of Hindu fascists has been expounded by
Golwalker, a veteran of Hindutv as : "The foreign races in
Hindustan must either adopt the Hindu culture and language,
must learn to respect and hold in reverence Hindu religion,
must entertain no ideas but those of glorification of the
Hindu race and culture….or may stay in the country wholly
subordinated to the Hindu nation, claiming nothing, deserving
no privileges far less any preferential treatment, not even
citizen's right." The Bajrang Dal, Hindu fascist organization
with the active support of the BJP has been enforcing
With the parliament and assembly elections just months away,
the Hindutv elements are deliberately creating communal
polarization of vote banks to consolidate the BJP's electoral
hold on the basis of divisive politics. It does not require
much acumen to understand the motive behind the serial blasts
occurred only in the States .where the BJP assumed office.
The Hindu fascist organizations such as VHP, RSS and Bajrang
Dal have been branded as terrorist organizations in India and
involved in several bomb blasts, and recent attacks on
Christians, but not yet banned like SIMI. Often such a
callous attitude on the part of the government reflects
flagrant double standard.
The Muslim bodies, representing wide spectrum of views, have
repeatedly condemned all terrorist acts and have appealed to
the Muslim youths to refrain from violent activities since
terrorism is alien to Islam, and consolidate their nerve and
verve to the progress and prosperity of the community and the
nation where they live.
