Latest news of Imam Jamil Abdullah al-Amin: On May 1 and 2 Imam Khalil Abdur Rahman [North Carolina] along with Imam Jamil's brother Ed Brown visited the man known as the Imam of America in the maximum security prison in Florence, Colorado. He found Imam Jamil very upbeat and high spirited as usual. However, it gradually became apparent that the Imam is being treated very badly in prison and this should not be allowed to continue. Legal means are being organized to get Imam Jamil transferred to a facility nearer to his home in Georgia.
Remember Imam Jamil in your du'as and pray for his release.

Another astounding presentation by Mark Weber. After reading this, you'll find it meaningless to think of World War II as a war between good and evil. Weber's documentation and emphasis on facts rather than opinion makes him a must read. We urge Muslims to support his research. Scroll way down for this latest report.

Latest war news: U.S. kills 150 Civilians in Farah Province: Pakistan Bombs Swat: Air lifts troops to Mingora

May 4, 5, 6, 2009. With the arrival of Karzai of Kabul and Asif Zardari of Pakistan in the U.S., heavy weapons strikes were launched by the U.S. and Pak in Farah province of Afghanistan and Swat valley in Pakistan's Frontier province.

Reuters reports truckloads of bodies of women and children being brought to Herat after U.S. air strikes in the village of Bala Boluk, Farah province. The International Red Cross Reports that the bombing killed 13 members of one family, including a Red Crescent relief worker.

A member of the Farah provincial council, Balqis Roshan, said her information, based on talking to locals, was that more than 150 civilians were killed. [AFP]

Reuters has published photos of the bombed homes but the U.S. commander in Afghanistan David Mckiernan is blaming the Taliban, though he admits, no American has reached the area. [U.S. commanders pretend that Taliban do not care for their own women and children. New Trend observers say Afghans would rather die than let anyhing happen to their women and children.]

May 6-7: The very latest is that airlifted Pak troops entered Mingora [the capital of Swat] and joined up with a small Pak garrison there. At least 20 Taliban were killed in the surprise attack along with 14 Pak troops. Heavy fighting is going on as we go to the press. Most of Mingora remains in Taliban hands. Heavy Pak bombardment has forced 100,000 people to leave Swat in ONE DAY. Islamic al-Khidmat group is providing relief to the homeless.

Pakistan's heavy artillery and helicopter gunships are pounding Mingora and other parts of Swat killing 37 civilians and 5 Taliban and forcing people to leave their homes. In Israeli style, Pak military is ordering civilians in Swat to leave as it continues to carry out free fire attacks. More fighting is reported from Buner where Taliban are resisting Pak elite troops. A Taliban attack in Malakand [Butkhela area] killed 5 Pak troops and wounded 4. [Lower Dir is back in control of the Pak Taliban but is being raided by Pak helicopters.]
At least 85 orphans are trapped in an orphanage as the Pak long range heavy artillery pounds Mingora. Taliban in Swat are are digging in and awaiting an all out assault by Pak forces following warnings from Washington that it will not tolerate Shari'a Law in Swat district.

Leader of Peaceful Movement
Jamaate Islami Leader Munawar Hasan Condemns Pak Military Action against Pak Taliban

April 29, 2009. Syed Munawar Hasan, the leader of Pakistan's biggest Islamic movement, Jamaate islami, which wants peaceful change in Pakistan, issued a detailed and categorical denuciation of Pakistan's military action against the Taliban. He said the military action is a continuation of U.S. drone bombings of Pakistani villages. The army assault has not been discussed with the Pakistani people and will have serious consequences for the country. Large numbers of civilians are being killed in the assault and villages are being blasted open, he said. The government's claim that "terrorists" are being killed in the army operations is baseless, he said. The people are opposed to the army action and have demonstrated in large numbers against it, he said. Finally talks will have to be held, he said. Why not start now?

Our America: Obama Day 106 [Not counting Inauguration Day]

The Pakistani offensives are "exactly the appropriate response" to the Taliban advance, Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said Tuesday.
"We are hopeful and encouraging of the Pakistani military that they are able to sustain these operations against the militants and to stem this encroachment on the more populated areas of Pakistan.

U.S. Agenda behind Attacks on Taliban: Are Pak Nuclear Weapons a Problem for the U.S.? Obama & Muslims

On May 2, 2009 Dr. Kaukab Siddique was interviewed by Dr. Wilmer Leon on the "On with Leon Show." It is a uniquely independent program and attracts analysts as different as Congressman Conyers and Osama bin Laden specialist Michael Scheur. Major media find Dr. Siddique too intimidating for their programs. By contrast Dr. Leon considers him a friend and lets him speak live and without prior vetting. Dr. Leon's viewpoint explains this courage. It's reflected in a quote on the portal of his web site, from Dr. Dubois:

"I agee with Paul Robeson absolutely, that Negroes should never willingly fight in an unjust war. I do not share his honest hope that all will not. A certain sheep-like disposition, inevitably born of slavery will, I am afraid, lead many of them to join America in any enterprise, provided the whites will grant them equal right to do wrong." [Dr. Dubois 1950.]

[Replace "Negroes" with "Muslims" and it applies so well to the condition of Muslims working as collaborators in every country.]

Here is a summary of the main points in Dr. Siddique's half hour interview in response to Dr. Leon's questions:

Escalate the Boycott of Nestle Products: Nestle is Deeply invested in Israel

We are calling for systematic boycott of Nestle' products. This is the message from Sis. Karen English [California] Director of Jamaat al-Muslimeen's Boycott of Businesses which Support Zionism. Sis. Karen is calling on readers of New Trend to sign and send the following letter [or something similiar] to Nestle'. [Sample letter:]

Nestle, USA [Attn. Paul Bulcke]
2455 Paces Ferry Road NW
Atlanta, GA 30339-4024

I 'm writing as one of many consumers who've decided to find alternatives to Nestle's products. I've recently discovered that Nestle' is heavily invested in Israel. Through its joint ventures with companies in Israel [Osem, Materna], Nestle' is helping to perpetuate Israel's apartheid policies and human rights abuses of the Palestinian people.
I'm aware that you have vowed never to capitulate to the Arab Boycott of your company.
I am not an Arab. I'm an American citizen who must follow my conscince. I'm not under any impression that you will reconsider your policies as a result of this letter.
Still, I feel compelled to inform Nestle' that for every product Nestle' produces there is an alternative. I will be gladly reaching past the Nestle' products to choose one from a company that does not wantonly disregard human rights for all.


Note: Nestle' products include: Nescafe, Nestea, Nestle Carnation, Tasters; Choice, Nestle' Hot Cocoa, Coffeemate, Raisinet and many others.

From Mark Glenn [Idaho] []
Mark Glenn is probably the most outspoken critic of Jewish hegemony and terrorism, from a viewpoint steeped in the teachings of Jesus, pbuh.
Jamaat al-Muslimeen honored him for his efforts at the International Peace Conference held in Baltimore in 2008.
Zionism: Jewish supremacism, Jewish exceptionalism, Jewish apartheid. Zionism dehumanizes the human race. Solution: Outlaw Zionism.

Are you Legally anti-semitic?

Antisemitism as defined by Congress and the US State Dept

On Oct 16, 2004 AD, President Bush signed into law the global anti-Semitism review act; which is quite interesting. The United States state Department list the following sets of beliefs as being anti-Semitic.
  1. Any assertion that the Jewish community controls government, the media, international business and the financial world is anti-Semitic.

  2. Any strong anti-Israel sentiment is anti-Semitic.

  3. Virulent criticism of Israel's leaders, past or present, is anti-Semitic.

  4. Criticism of the Jewish religion or its religious leaders or literature, especially the Talmud and the Kabala is anti-Semitic. [I wonder if that includes the traditions of the elders that Jesus criticized. "And woe unto the Pharisees" that Jesus said.]

  5. Criticism of the US government and congress for being under influences of the Jewish/Zionist community, including AIPEC, is anti-Semitic.

  6. Criticism of the Jewish/Zionist community for promoting Globalism, [the New World Order] is anti-Semitic.

  7. Blaming Jewish leaders and their followers for inciting the Roman crucifixion of Christ is anti-Semitic.

  8. Diminishing the 6 million figure of the holocaust victims is anti-Semitic.

  9. Calling Israel a racist state is anti-Semitic.

  10. Asserting that there exists a Zionist conspiracy is anti-Semitic.

  11. Claiming the Jews and their leaders created the Bolshevik revolution is Russia is anti-Semitic. [I guess you have to revise history].

  12. Making derogatory statements about Jewish persons is anti-Semitic. Now isn't this interesting and all inclusive?
P.S. If you have functioning brain matter between your ears, you're probably legally anti-semitic. Anti-semitism seems to go hand and hand with truth and knowing truth.

FBI is supported by U.S. Muslim Groups which make ISNA-CAIR-ICNA look like Mujahideen

Some Muslims Support FBI's Stand Against CAIR
By Matt Coker in A Clockwork Orange, Main, OC Media

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which has an office in Anaheim, has been in the news (and on this blog) a lot lately following official confirmation that the FBI has been spying on the Islamic Society of Irvine mosque.

CAIR and the Islamic Educational Center of Orange County were among several Muslim advocacy groups that signed on to a statement saying they are considering breaking ties with the feds over such snooping and the FBI's previous breaking of ties with CAIR. But not every Muslim group supports that stand. A different coalition of American Muslim groups has issued a statement of its own commending the FBI.

We, the undersigned American Muslims, have long known the true character of CAIR and its allies. Therefore: The statement is signed by Kemal Silay, president of the Center for Islamic Pluralism ; Supna Zaidi, assistant director of Islamist Watch ; M. Zuhdi Jasser of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy ; Imaad Malik, fellow with the Center for Islamic Pluralism; Ahmed Subhy Mansour with the International Quranic Center ; Khalim Massoud, whose email address is Reform Islam; Nawab Agha Mousvi of the American Muslim Congress; Kiran Sayyed of the Council for Democracy and Tolerance ; Stephen Suleyman Schwartz, executive director of the Center for Islamic Pluralism; a group called Shia Protest; and Jalal Zuberi, Southern U.S. director with the Center for Islamic Pluralism.

Letter: Re: FATWA on Pakistan by Imam Badi Ali

Does the following Hadīth apply to suicide bombers who are known to be Muslim?
The Holy Prophet peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: "If a person kills himself with an iron (knife), he will be in Hell with his knife in his hand stabbing himself (and abiding) there forever. If a person kills himself with poison, his poison will be in his hand taking it in Hell (abiding there) forever. If a person throws himself down a mountain to death, hewill go down into Hell continuously forever." (Bukhari and Muslim)

Hamdiyah Fatimah

Letter: Re: Fatwa on Pakistan: Isn't Suicide bombing Haram

Dear Imam, assalamualikum,
This refers to your Fatwa on Taliban's fighting against the Zionist-Imperialist forces. May I ask your goodself whether you approve and support siucide bombings- in order to destroy the enemy of Islam, one dies himself as a human bomb by igniting the belt-bomb strapped around his body. Islam does not justify the means to achieve the goal, if it stands against Islamic tenets.

Please clarify.
With best regards and prayers.

Hamza Kallada, India

New Trend research and response by Kaukab Siddique: What kind of war are the Taliban fighting? How to stop "suicide bombings."

Imam Badi Ali did not say anything in his FATWA on the issues mentioned in these letters. It seems that the letter writers connect Taliban with "suicide bombing." Here is New Trend's research on these matters:
  1. The term "suicide bombing" is a Zionist term meant to denigrate armed opponents of Zionism and Imperialism
  2. Those who are launching these attacks call themsevles martyrdom operators. We should call people by names of their choice, not those chosen by others.
  3. The Hadith quoted by Sis. Hamdiyah is about suicide. It is not about jihad or death of any kind during jihad. A suicider kills himself for issues related to his lack of hope, while a jihad fighter attacks the enemies of Islam sacrificing himself/herelf in the process and hopes for paradise in the other world.
  4. All soldiers, Muslim or non-Muslim, go to the battlefield knowing that they might get killed or even be blown to bits.
  5. The Qur'an does not allow Muslims to run from the battlefield: Only tactical retreat is permitted. Thus Muslims fighting for Islam go to the battlefield not only willing but eager to sacrifice themselves. This is not suicide and Allah promises such men and women Paradise forever and the company of houris and ghilman. As Khalid ibn al-Waleed, r.a., put it to the kuffar: The Muslims love death as much as you love life.
  6. With the Taliban [as with the Iraqis and Palestinians], a further complication is that they do not have jet fighters, or helicopter gunships or heavy artillery or tanks or night vision technology. There is absolutely no equivalence in weaponry. The Taliban, both in Afghanistan and Pakistan, are fighting a guerrilla war in which martyrdom operations are the only weapon which can put fear into the hearts of overwhelming forces being used by the U.S. and Pak militaries.
  7. Martyrdom operations sometimes do not reach their targets and end up killing innocent people. Notice that American and Pak militaries which have precision weapons are killing huge numbers of civilians.
  8. The lesson of this tragic situation is that war must be stopped. Islam will not accept slavery. Islam is resurgent in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Even if all the Islamic leaders are killed, new ones will emerge and the resistance will continue.
  9. Let us urge President Obama to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq and Afghanistan and stop arming and funding the Pakistani military. Peace is the answer and it does not come through occupation and bombardment.

An Unknown Holocaust: Mass Killing, 'Ethnic Cleansing' and Brutal Mistreatment of Germans by the Victorious Allies
Mark Weber -- Worldwatch (Audio MP3 file)

Weber reviews the little-known story of misery and death imposed by the victors on defeated Germany in the aftermath of World War II. The Allied powers imposed an "unknown holocaust" of destruction, looting, starvation, rape, "ethnic cleansing," and mass killing. More than 14 million Germans were expelled or forced to flee from eastern and central Europe. Some three million Germans died needlessly -- about two million civilians, mostly women, children and elderly, and one million prisoners of war. Weber also highlights the Allied double standard in putting German leaders to death for policies that the Allies themselves were carrying out, sometimes on a far greater scale.

Pakistan's women leaders
Amina Masood, Leader of women's Movement to Recover "Disappeared" Men, Gets Jamaate Islami Support

May 6, 2009: At a seminar in Rawalpindi, top Jamaate Islami women leaders, including Senator Kauthar Firdous and Samiha Raheel Qazi [second and third from left in photo] support Amina Masood [left]. Amina has been campaigning for the recovery of 146 Pakistani men who have been victimized by the Pakistani government for opposing American and Pak military policies. They have disappeared without a trace. No arrests announced, no trials.

The women leaders with covered faces are highly educated and cover their faces to indicate love of Allah and rejection of western materialistic values.

Photos of two of the "disappeared" men are in the foreground.
