Thought of the Day: It's very simple: Israel MUST be punished.
Jamaat al-Muslimeen urges U.S. Muslims and Christian friends to
all Jews who consider Israel a legitimate entity. Don't let
"moderate" Jews fool you. They condemn Israeli atrocities but
they support the Israeli occupation of Palestine. Israel
itself is a crime.
We urge Islamic Law experts to put Israelis on trial for the
mass murder of 1500+ civilians, including 400+ children. Israel's
leaders, generals, tank officers and pilots, as well as the
entire IDF are war criminals. A time will come when the
mujahideen will hit the Israelis, inshallah. In the meantime,
we urge Islamic courts to bring to trial and at least
symbolically hang 1500 Israelis for their crimes against
humanity. Don't let the mass murder of children be forgotten.
We thank Sis. Labeebah, Saudi Arabia, for a collection of of
photos titled "I want to tell the world." It gives a good
overview of Israel's rape of humanity in Gaza. It's on our web
site now.. Worth looking at but does not include the most
horrifying ones which other readers sent us. Those were too
much for us, including a baby burnt alive by the Jews. Check

This is how the Enemies of Islam think. In their own words:
"Israel didn't violate the laws of war and made impressive
improvements in its fighting capability in the recent Hamas
clash in Gaza, a U.S. study says.
The analysis of the 22-day conflict in Gaza by Anthony
Cordesman of the Center for Strategic and International Studies
finds "marked improvements in the readiness and capability" of
the Israeli military since the war against Hezbollah in Lebanon
It said further, that Israel didn't violate the laws of war
despite the large number of civilian casualties among the
Palestinians, the Jerusalem Post reported."

Assalamo Aleikum Dr. Siddique,
Thank you very much for for posting the diary. It makes me
aware of what's going on in some Masjids in USA. By the way,
Here's good news for you; alhamdolillah many Saudis here in the

It is full of amazing stories of Zulm, torture, American
fraudulent deceptions and the evasive discussion of the
president of Masjid Noor of BM. Do you think that this kind of
Muslim leadership is of any use in reconstructing its fate. I
don't think so. May thanks for giving the background

Imam Jamil al-Amin, America's Imam, Spreaks out from Prison:
[Exclusive to New Trend] [January 31, 2009]
Br. Imam Khalil Abdur Rahman from North Carolina met
Imam Jamil al-Amin at the maximum security prison in Florence,
Colorado. It's a long trip by air to Denver and then from there
by road to Florence. We congratulate Br. Khalil that he was
able to make the trip. He spoke to the imam through a glass
partition. These are Imam Khalil's impressions of the Imam.
[Br. Khalil is Imam Jamil's international representative.]
He appeared to be in good health although he is being held
underground. The cell where he is being held lacks heating and
he was wearing three layers of clothing under his jump suit. He
seems to have been moved from his original location in the
prison. He has his beard and was wearing his kufi and looking
very alert and upbeat.
He wanted to talk and he did most of the talking from 9.30 AM
to 2.45 PM. Looks like he is allowed to watch TV and had
incisive commentary to make on the new political situation in
America. His understanding is that the measures the Obama
administration is trying to implement will not work. Things are
nor going to change much in America, he said. The measures
being taken are half hearted and do not go to the root of the
horrific situation which has developed in America.
He said, if America wants economic health, it should learn
from the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, and CANCEL ALL INTEREST
based and interested related debt. Otherwise, the situation
will continue to fester.
Imam Jamil urged Muslims in America to understand that this
country is going through a transitional stage. This is the
time for Muslims to distinguish themselves by taking
leadership roles to help the people out of the disaster facing
them. This is NOT the time for assmilation and trying to
become part of the corrupt power structure.
The Imam sent out his greetings to all those who are striving
in Allah's Way without fear or hesitation.
Outreach in Tennessee: "Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, was humble,
sat on the ground, often went Hungry."
On January 30,
representative Br. Yusuf [of Irish origin], gave the Juma
khutba in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
The topic was about strict adherence to Allah and His Messenger
(peace be upon him) in ALL matters, which we severely neglect
in this time of "ease" in the wilderness of north america and
Some lines were taken from the sayings of Asadullah Ali ibn Abi
Talib, r.a., one of the most eloquent Companions of the Prophet,
pbuh, and most fierce mujahid.
"Certainly, in the Prophet of Allah (peace and blessing of
Allah be upon him and his progeny) was sufficient example for
you and a proof concerning the vices of the world, its defects,
the multitude of its disgraces and its evils, because its sides
had been constrained for him, while its flanks had been spread
for others; he was deprived of its milk and turned away from
"When he knew that Allah, the Glorified, hated a thing, he too
hated it; that Allah held a thing low, he too held it low; that
Allah held a thing small, he too held it small. If we love what
Allah and His Prophet hate and hold great what Allah and His
prophet hold small that would be enough separation from
transgression of Allah's commands. "
"The Prophet used to eat on the ground, and sat like a
slave...he remained hungry along with his chief companions (and
thus they had to tie rocks to their stomachs) - Nowadays when
was the last time a Muslim here has tied a rock to his stomach
due to severe hunger?! We've been so drunk of the western
ease that all we do is pay lip service to Quds and Ghaza and
mothers over there are offering their children as sacrifice for
us - namdi qitaalan! namdi rijaalin!" [trans.
Action Alert: Help Remove Shameful Cartoon Abusing the Best
of Men, Peace be on him
From Sis. Aqila [Washington, DC]
As salaamu alaikum wa rahmatullah, ya ustad,
I am bringing to your attention a very serious matter involving
disgraceful cartoons posted at a hack website called
http://sheikyermami.com. The website contains a putrid cartoon
depicting Rasulullah (saws) being served WINE by a black SLAVE
to whom he is demanding wine to drink and saying , "nigger,
where's your little sister?" This is an outrageous afront to
even the most docile muslim when the Holy Prophet and Messenger
of Allah (swt) is insulted in this way.
Of course, I reported the matter to CAIR and got only silence
(which I did expect). I have done all I can to alert as many
Muslims as possible to write in to the web host provider,
Ubiquity Hosting Solutions in Bloomington, Ill, to request the
offensive content be removed. The website also contains other
cartoon caricitures, including one of women wearing Muslim
attire pushing strollers with children that have armed bombs
strapped to thier chests. This simply is not funny. We should
not allow ourselves to be mocked this way and it is not islamic
to allow such ridicule of the Muslims by kuffar. The link to
the offensive cartoon is below. The address of the web host
provider is email@example.com. So far they have refused
to request the offensive material be removed by saying it is
protected by "free speech": of course hate speech is not
protected speech, which is exactly what this is. Other
domain-specific information about this website can be found by
doing a "whois" search through the domain provider, Network

South African Boycott of Israel-related Companies [started
by Cape Town Muslims] Spreads to Durban Activists
In a historic development for South Africa, South African dock
workers have announced their determination not to offload a
ship from Israel that is scheduled to dock in Durban on Sunday,
8 February 2009. This follows the decision by COSATU to
strengthen the campaign in South Africa for boycotts,
divestment and sanctions against Apartheid Israel.
January 27, 2009: academics and activists in Durban started
a process they hoped would see boycotts and pressure similar to
that which helped end apartheid, force an end to Israeli
occupation of Palestine.
Their plan included: boycotting companies that supported Israel;
withdrawing from competitions that included Israeli sports teams;
and engaging with progressive academics from Israel.
Academics agreed to push for a national conference on the
boycott of Israel and Patrick Bond, head of the Centre for
Civil Society, which organised the gathering of activists, said
he would discuss these ideas at an internal staff meeting later
At the seminar on Jan. 27, activist Dennis Brutus said an
anti-Israel boycott would be similar to the anti-apartheid
boycott from the 60s, which he said produced the desired results.
A different view of Obama's Inauguration
Slaves Waving American Flags! What we can learn from
by Sis. 'Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen New York City]
As-Salaamu-'Alaikum Bro. Siddique!
I am so happy to read that you spoke up at that Mosque. Those
khutbas can be so annoying that you want to scream out just to
wake everyone else up. Then, you realize that you are not alone.
I saw the Inauguaration of President Obama on January 20th and
I have never seen so many African-Americans waving the American
flag. I suspect these flags were free since I saw so many people
waving 4 or 5 of them. I liken the jubilation expressed that
day to that of African slaves when they witnessed the choosing
of the first Black overseer on the plantation. They probably
thought the same thing that many African-Americans think now,
that the oppressive situations will decrease or end entirely.
But, as anyone who has ever studied American History knows, this
jubilation ended once the Black overseer was ordered to whip a
fellow Black slave until that slave fell unconscious, covered
in a pool of his own blood to the horror of other slave onlookers.
This was done to send a message to the other slaves foolish
enough to think that this Black overseer was a "brother."
That's when the person really pulling the strings, the White
plantation owner, steps forward to remind these Black slaves
that he is really the one in charge! The only difference
between Barack Obama and the Black overseers is that the Black
slaves did not have a choice. According to Islam they did. They
could have chosen to die by torture rather than oppress another
soul but, most people would rather live. I am not saying it was
an easy decision to make because it wasn't. However, Barack has
made a choice and his choice is to continue the American Way.
I remember Imam Jamil Al-Amin, when he was H.Rap Brown,
questioning the American Way. The American Way is the philosphy
that might (and White) is right, in my opinion.
Barack Obama claimed he wanted to be like Pres. Abraham Lincoln.
The same Pres. Lincoln who stated that if he could win the war
without freeing the African slaves he would. Many people do not
know that Lincoln was not at all the spiritual being who could
not bear to live as a free man while others were still being
kept as slaves. This image is a White Hope fallacy. He was the
complete opposite! The Union Army was losing to the Confederates
badly and the Union needed more men; hence, the release of
African slaves to fight for the Union. Many Southern military
officials were already promising freedom to their own slaves if
they fought for the Confederates. Lincoln had to find a way to
counteract that. Also, knowing that the Union was for the
Nothern states, where did all of these African slaves come from?
The Northern slave owners! Many people are taught that slavery
existed only in the Southern states.
Anyway, who would've benefited the most from White men killing
each other but, the very people the White man stole this land
from and kept as his slaves - Native Americans and
Many people keep saying that Barack Obama hasn't any African
slave ties to America and therefore, cannot fully relate to the
Black exerperience here. But, what about Michele Obama, his
wife? She is an African-American descendant from slaves. I am
glad to read that most African nations are very cautious about
Mr. Obama. They, of all people, should sleep with both eyes
open with Obama in office.

On the Zogby Brothers, here is the low down: Is there a CIA
Past in the Family?
by Husayn al-Kurdi [Chicago]
James born 1945, John 1948
Grew up in Utica, NY, which contains a rat's nest of Lebanese
Christian emigrant families, coming down the Rat Lines since
the late 19th Century.
James has been all over the map since the late 1970s: a founder
of the "Palestine Human Rights Campaign", Executive Director of
ADC, a co-founder of "Save Lebanon, Inc." in 1982 (after
destruction of that country by the Jewish state invaders),
co-President of "Builders for Peace", described as "a private
sector committee to promote US business investment in the West
Bank and Gaza", working with and through AID, US State
Department etc., active in the informant-spy Jesse Jackson's
Presidential campaigns and now writing a column and hosting a
TV show, both widely-spread by the usual enemy.
He is active in the ACLU, "Human Rights Watch", the Democrat
Party, heads the Arab American Institute and is a member of the
Council on Foreign Relations.
Long-time CIA Beirut station chief Ghosn "Clarence" Zogby (now
long retired and probably dead) is surely a part of the
Maronite Zogby clan, but not in the immediate family of the
"Arab-American" Zogby Brothers. Some Zogbys stayed behind in
Lebanon to do their dirty work, while others, including the
brothers' forebears, emigrated to America and set up shop here.
He received his doctorate from Temple University in 1975,
"studying" under the late unlamented Ismail Faruqi, avid
promoter of the traitor-to-Zionism "moderate" brand of "Islam"
which has been assiduously merchandised by Islam's inveterate
enemies with accelerating frequency and intensity over the last
three decades and more.
Faruqi is one of the "pioneers" in the "American Muslim"
government asset milieu which pervades the Masjids and
nominally "Muslim" organizations in America. My file in this
regard is getting incredibly thick, so I think I will be
breaking it down into organizations, groupings and individuals
and releasing them one article or note at a time.
GHOSH ZOGBY: Important CIA Operative
Notes from "Ropes of Sand: America's Failure in the Middle East"
by Wilbur Crane Eveland (CIA) (WW Norton 1980)
Ghosn Zogby is referenced 20 times in the Index, his wife Helen
once (she gave CIA listening post cocktail parties for honored
guests, some of whom were themselves CIA operatives).
Some of the references with Page#s in parentheses:
(119) IDs Zogby as CIA chief of station in Beirut
(121) "carried by the American embassy as a first
(165) mentions TIME reporter Mohamed Khalil Abu Rish "generally
known as Abu Said" as a CIA agent/asset originally recruited by
Archie Roosevelt, "First Chief of the Beirut station." Zogby
referred to Abu Rish as one of the CIA's most capable agents.
Zogby comes off as a self-promoting braggart throughout the
book, making inflated claims to bolster his prestige. Of course,
the author does the very same for himself throughout the book,
this being an occupational commonplace in their profession.
(245) Zogby was in charge of running 2 critical operations:
WAPPEN, which meddled in Syrian politics to insure that
pro-American politicians stayed in power and SIPONY, which was
directed towards Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, whose
CIA cryptonym was "SIBLING".
The book goes into some detail on Zogby's subversive activities
in the Middle East, and its basic points are
Feb. 5, 2009: "From Gaza to Srinagar: One struggle" says one
banner. Islamic women at a huge rally in Lahore,
Pakistan in support of the Kashmiri struggle for freedom. The
demonstrators said that Kashmir and Palestine are part of the
worldwide struggle against oppression and occupation. Rallies
in support of Kashmir, mostly by men but often with women too,
were held in EVERY Pakistani city at the call of Jamaate Islami
and were addressed by Jamaate Islami leaders and activists from
numerous other organizations. Jamaate Islami is attracting
impressive support from women, more than any other group. Many
of the women cover their faces as a symbolic rejection of the
western way of life.
Israeli Troops Shot and Killed Zoo Animals
Gulf News (Dubai, UAE)
The Gaza Zoo reeks of death ... Around every corner, inside
almost every cage are dead animals, who have been lying in
their cages since the Israeli incursion. Qasim doesn't
understand why they chose to destroy his zoo. And it's difficult
to disagree with him. Most of them have been shot at point
blank range. "The first thing the Israelis did was shoot at the
lions - the animals ran out of their cage and into the office
building. Actually they hid there."
Guantanamo: Inside the Wire
Journalist Yvonne Ridley and film-maker David Miller
recently spent four days in Guantanamo Bay, one of the few
media crews allowed inside the world's most notorious prison.
US President Barack Obama may have stopped the military tribunals
and ordered the closure of the infamous site, but this
thought-provoking two-part documentary raises some uncomfortable
issues about the long-term legacy of Guantanamo.
The experience also makes Ridley confront some personal issues
following her own arrest and imprisonment at the hands of the
Taliban in September 2001.
The documentary includes personal accounts from some
ex-Guantanamo detainees who've never gone on record before to
talk ab out their experiences including Tarek Dergoul, Feroz
Abassi and Omar Deghayes.
The first part of the documentary went out at 01.32am and

Police Atrocity against Moroccan Immigrant
Uncovered+Constant Propaganda to Portray Hamas as "terrorist."
After listening to an interview of the 39th. President of USA,
Mr. Jimmy Carter, on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC)
radio station, on January 29, 2009, I was amazed at the
word-twisting and concoction, which goes on all the time in the
Western press (both print and electronic), regarding what was
actually said and what was printed or presented, in the media.
What Hamas, within the Palestinian movement stands for, is one
thing and what Zionist-dominated media reflects is something
quite different. The Zionist-dominated and big Corporation-biased
media of Montreal, always paints Hamas as a terrorist
organization, out to wipe Israel from the face of the earth!
However, what has actually happened in the 22-days
David-versus-Goliath war between Israel and Hamas, in the Gaza
Strip, is there for everybody to see. It is just the opposite
of general perception. In fact in this case Israel wanted to
wipe out Hamas from the Gaza Strip but miserably failed in this
The very sight of dead children and civilians of the Gaza Strip,
hit by Israli bombs and bomblets, makes one tremble with anger!
Why should the Zionist even attempt to recreate the Holocaust?
Have they not learnt any lesson from the cruelties perpertrated
on them by the Europeans? How long will they punish the innocent
Palestinians for the crimes of the Europeans, partricularly of
the Nazi Germans, Imperialist British and Fascist Italians?
Daily, The Gazette, an Israel Asper Canwest Global newspaper of
Montreal, in its january 29, 2009 issue, gives a highly biased
and slanted version of how the death of an Israeli soldier
provided an excuse to the Israeli soldiers, to enter Gaza once
again! What a pretext! One wonders for how long the international
community will continue to be a silent spectator of this
atrocity venture jointly perpetrated by USA and Israel? The
pertinent question is whether Canada also played an active
accomplice role in the Gaza massacre?
The "Justice for Anas Coalition" organized an impressive rally
in front of the "Palais de Justice" building at noon time on
January 29, 2009. The demonstrators who numbered more than 50,
braved the extemely cold weather, and called for speedy and
transparent justice in this case. It may be mentioned that as
far back as December 1, 2005, Mohamed Anas Bennis, a 25-year
old Canadian of Moroccan origin was shot at close range by a
police officer, while Anas was returning from a mosque, after
offering his morning prayers.
The "Justice for Anas Coalition" demanded:
- the immediate release of all reports, evidence and information
concerning the death of Anas Bennis, to the Bennis family and
to the public;
- a full public inquiry, independently held, into the death of
the young Muslim man; and
- an end to police brutality and impunity.

Letter from India
Washington Post's Knee Jerk Response to Turkish PM's
Criticism of Israel
It is something like a twiggle switch. The moment you criticize
Israel or its lobby in the US, the whole system of interconnected
friendly relationship goes down. This is absurd. Except for a
few scared rabbits, who did not want to risk antagonizing their
Jewish relationship, within or without their countries, the
whole world, on humanitarian grounds was appalled at Israeli
atrocities against civilian population. It was a replay of the
supposedly Nazi atrocities on Jews in Germany. The line of
armaments was so formidable; it is surprising that Gaza still
exists as a human territory. And the way Israeli President
humiliated Turkish Prime Minister, sitting next to him on the
dais, in Davos, fully aware of his sensitive constituency back
home in Turkey, it is impossible for any self-respecting person
not to react. And next day we see an article in Washington Post,
instantly declaring that Turkey has turned away from the West.
How fickle and how sinister is this demand on allies to conform
to Israeli order of things. It is more like a slavery than

A Deep, Well-laid Plan to Exploit Sudan: bypassing Khartoum
SHOULD WE STARVE SUDAN OR HELP IT SURVIVE?
by William Reed [Washington, DC]
Illinois State Senator Jacqueline Y. Collins was the legislator
that caused her state to become the first in the nation to
divest taxpayers' funds from Sudan. In order to "save" people
in eastern Sudan's Darfur region Collins' bill sought to starve
Sudan into submission to U.S. policy views. It's becoming clear
that these foreign policy practices aren't working. Nowadays,
as Americans are confronted by a spiraling domestic crisis
brought on by a lack of investments and credit many are starting
to rethink policies that destroy entire economies and populations.
In contrast to Ms. Collins, an investor previously with the
American International Group (AIG) insurance firm is leading a
deal with investment and development in Southern Sudan leasing
a substantial amount of farm land there. Philippe Heilberg,
chairman and CEO of New York-based investment firm Jarch Capital,
expects high returns from approximately 400,000 hectares of land
in Mayom County which he anticipates being involved with "for
decades". It is post-colonial Africa's biggest private land
deal. With the picture Collins and her people paint of Sudan's
situation, of all places to be investing Sudan should not be on
anyone's list. The massive deal would drive Senator Collins and
the Darfur Disinvestment movement into the streets had not an
Illinois District Court already thrown the punitive policy out
Heilberg has a majority stake in a company controlled by the
son of Paulino Matip. Mr. Heilberg is gambling on the warlord's
continuing control of a region where his militia operated in
Sudan's civil war. The area is about 70 times the size of the
island of Manhattan. Heilberg plans to grow crops and has also
taken a stake in a Sudanese farming company with the Matip clan.
Heilberg says "The land is rich in oil and minerals and it is
the largest area of organic farmland in the world". Ironically,
Heilberg is backed in the deal for the vast track of fertile
land along the Nile River by former CIA and state department
officials. While Collins and colleagues would deprive all
Sudanese of investments, Heilberg says "local people will
benefit" from his deal. The deal will acquire billions in
investments over the next decade and Heilberg's company will
need to put in significant infrastructure for the agriculture
sector and for transportation.
Collins and the Sudan Divestment Task Force promote campaigns
to divest from Sudan throughout America and Europe. The National
Foreign Trade Council business group differs and opposes
unilateral sanctions. It successfully sued Illinois in 2007
over its broad Sudan divestment measure. The group says: "we
believe that nuance serves U.S. values and foreign policy
objectives far better than blunt economic instruments". They
condemn the emotional rush to action on Darfur.
While broad sanctions still apply to much of Sudan, the U.S.
Treasury Department has begun a practice of narrower sanctions.
New US policies incorporate carve-outs for Southern Sudan's
government in support of the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement.
With Collins' people sitting on the sidelines, the Bank of Juba
in Southern Sudan has received its own international banking
code for international wire transfers. The disinvestment crowd
can gain comfort from American and foreign investors insistence
that they are doing business in Southern Sudan and do not go
In recent years, Southern Sudan has been benefiting from
capital and investments. A significant amount of foreign-based
oil drilling has begun in the South where about 85 percent of
the Sudan's oil flow is. Southern Sudan's lack of infrastructure
is an opportunity for investors from banking to agriculture to
construction and telecommunications. While it's hoped that much
of Southern Sudan's development will be undertaken by local
companies and individuals, the carve-outs in U.S. regulations
create opportunities for American companies to contribute to
rebuilding Southern Sudan and help the regional government
shape a long-term, post-conflict approach to foreign investment.
Do you support divest or invest? Disinvestment practices are
counterproductive to sane capitalistic practices. Furthermore,
with Darfur increasingly on the brink, foreign investment in
Southern Sudan, and increasing economic initiatives throughout
the country, can stabilize Darfur and the entire region.

Hungarian Translation of Mein Kampf Just Published
Please open my home page below, see my books: click on the title
"könyveim"! You find there Adolf Hitler's book too entitled
Mein Kampf (Harcom). I have translated to Hungarian the Führer's
book and have written an epilogue to it. Adolf Hitler never
intended a holocaust against the Jews. On the other hand the
Jews are just now carrying out the holocaust against the
Palestinians. Convince yourself of the fact that the word
holocaust does not even occur in Adolf Hitler's book! Please
read the book published in my translation entitled Mein Kampf
(Harcom) to which I have written an epilogue! This is the first
complete Hungarian edition of Adolf Hitler's book.)
Following the denunciation done by the Alliance of the Jewish
Religious Associations of Hungary (MAZSIHISZ), because of the
epilogue that I have written to Mein Kampf, since its
publication in Hungary in October 1996 the Police, the Public
Prosecutor's Office and the Supreme Court's Hebrew female Judge
attempted again and again to prohibit the Mein Kampf (Harcom)
that I have edited.

Feb. 6 marks 33 years of imprisonment for our brother Leonard Peltier.
We ask that everyone make a call to the White House
comment line and ask for Executive Clemency for Leonard.
This will coincide with other actions around the country.
Tell your friends and family. Make notes and carry with you and pass out to friends
with the phone number on it and ask them simply that that
they take 2 min out of their lives to make this call. Many are not able to travel
for events but can reach out for Leonard in unison this way . Let the president hear
through the comment line thousands of comments for Leonard in one short time frame.

Free All Political Prisoners!
