The honor, the faith, the fearlessness, the acceptance of Allah's
will. How the leader of the Islamic uprising in Nigeria faced
Scroll way down
for photos of his last moments. Do not look if you are weak in
your faith. Inshallah, the emergence of a powerful Islamic
transformation has begun with the sacrifices of 700 Nigerian Muslims.
Not a surprise that Hillary Clinton is going to Nigeria to reinforce
her client regime.

been focusing on the, probably, accidental death of one woman in Iran.]
Spotlight from Imam Badi Ali [North Carolina]
Spotlight #1: The Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, described the imam or
leader of the Muslims as the shield for the believers, one who can be
trusted to protect the DEEN and the Ummah. The behavior of the imam
should be above any lowly motives. If our leadership is unreliable and
sold out, Muslims waver and do not know what to do and what program to
follow. Much of the problem of the Muslims today is the problem of a
leadership which is not a shield for the ummah but for
Spotlight #2: America's people are facing a breakdown of their dreams
with the ever increasing losses of jobs, the erosion of businesses and
the pain of foreclosures. Americans are smart when it comes to economics.
Gradually it is becoming clear to them that "economic terrorists" are
undermining all their efforts. The bankers, the lawyers, the physicians,
the pharmaceutical industry are gutting America. A great disillusionment
is sweeping through America. More and more, the people feel, we NEED a

California Critic of the Holocaust story asks, why Palestinians are
being Punished for Suffering of Jews?
In this six-minute clip Bradley Smith argues the obvious - that it was
not the Arabs of Palestine, or any other Arab country, who are accused
of killing millions of Jews in Eastern Europe.
If that is the case, and it is, Smith asks why the Arabs of Palestine
should be driven from their homes and their land occupied by European
Jews? And why should the U.S. Congress bankroll the crime?
You can view this exchange at:
To read Smith's monthly newsletter challenging the Holocaust Taboo,
The Weight of Tradition: Why Judaism is Not Like Other Religions
... Judaism is not just "another religion." It's unique among the
world's major religions. The core values and ethos of Judaism are
markedly unlike those of Christianity, Islam, and the other great
faiths ... A core message of the Hebrew scriptures is that Jews are a
divinely "chosen" people -- a unique community distinct from the rest
of humanity ... The seemingly intractable Middle East conflict is more
than just a problem of Zionism or politics, or a dispute over land.
Israel's often arrogant policies, and especially its inhumane treatment
of non-Jews, have roots in centuries-old attitudes that are laid out in
ancient Jewish religious writings.
Jamaat al-Muslimeen Re-Organization in Canada after Sister's Visit
August 2, 2009: Sis. Ashira returned from a visit to various towns in
Ontario, Canada. She talked to some old time activists and supporters
of Jamaat al-Muslimeen. She attended a big Juma' prayer gathering at a
prominent mosque and interviewed the khateeb after the prayers.
Sis, Ashira was invited to several wedding ceremonies of Muslims from
Africa and got a good feel for the lifestyle of immigrant women
Inshallah, we hope to publish some of the interviews.
Canadian Muslims desirous of joining Jamaat al-Muslimeen are welcome on
the basis of the Qur'an and the authentic Hadith, with independent
shoora and equal participation of women, with no links to oppressors.

New Publicity Card for Jamaat al-Muslimeen's Boycott of Businesses
Supporting Israel: California First
Following Jamaat al-Muslimeen's recent shoora meeting in Pennsylvania
[July 25], Sis. Karen, Director of the Boycott Campaign against Israel,
issued a new boycott card for distribution across Muslim communities in
America. The first mailing is going out to a whole list of mosques
Sis. Karen wants Muslims to realize that this boycott is the most
effective form of non-violent resistance to the Zionist control
The new card gives alternatives to the major boycotted companies to
reduce the feeling of hardship. It also carries a map of Palestine
showing the growth of Jewish usurpation and settlements.
Boycott is an effective tool. Have you seen the counter-boycott
publicity by Starbucks? They are claiming that they do not help the

Media Against Islam: India
Muslim group refutes terror allegations against Madrassas
Tuesday, August 04, 2009 10:54:23 PM, IANS
Patna: "Madrassas have nothing to do with terrorism," a
religious group says in a report that also negates the allegations that
Muslim seminaries in India are breeding ground for terror. The report
by All India Coordination Committee for Madrassas (AICCM) said "a
concerted campaign... to malign madrassas" had led to the deterioration
of educational standards in Muslim seminaries.
"There are over 4,000 madrassas in Bihar, including the seminaries where
the staff gets the salary from the state government.
There are 2,459 unaided madrassas. According to the first-ever status
paper brought out by the AICCM, there are only 32 madrassas for girls
under the government-aided category and 576 madrassas in the
Media against Islam: USA
How the Propaganda Campaign against Islamic Pakistan works.
New York Times is steadily publishing propaganda against the Islamic
forces in Pakistan while largely ignoring not only the resistance
viewpoint but also the mass gatherings of a peaceful movement like
Jamaate Islami which has been condemning U.S. intervention and military
operations in Swat.
New York Times feeds the entire network of "liberal"-zionist newspapers
NYT reports are then picked up by the tiny pro-U.S. groups in India.
Here is one example with New Trend's comment.
Nicholas Kristoff went to Karachi and published a nasty propaganda
piece against the Taliban. From there it was picked by a one man-show
in India known as NewAgeIslam, and then from there by a Zionist woman
"War on Terror," as if there is any such thing, was put out by New age.
It was simply a "copy and paste" job of Nicholas Kristoff's self-serving

America, Give Pakistanis Books, not Guns
Terror Creeps Into the Heartland
By NICHOLAS D. KRISTOF, New York Times
Here is New Trend's comment on Kristof's report:
New York Times is disseminating Zionist propaganda.
For one thing, it does not tell readers that "medressa" is Arabic for
"school." "Dars" is simply lesson or teaching.
The Pakistani army led by first General Musharraf and now General
Kayani has been destroying Islamic schools for years in tandem with the
U.S. air force.
The Taliban , in response, started destroying westernized schools set
up by the regime.
Imagine if the enemy of your people blew up your schools, mosques and
holy books with the STUDENTS inside the schools and then set up his own
schools there to brainwash your children.
In one U.S. air attack alone on an Islamic school [in Bajaur], 80
Muslim students were killed.
The Taliban have not killed anyone in their retaliation on secular schools.
So don't buy the hype. There are always two sides to a story.
This brainwashing after bombing happened in Germany too under Zionist
supervision during World War II.
New Trend Editor Urges Judge Bruce Lee to Release Abu Ali: Bush
couldn't Defeat Islam. Why do you think you can?

Judge Gerald Bruce Lee
U.S. District Court for the Eastern District
401 Courthouse Square, Room 601
Alexandria, VA 22314
Re: Life sentence handed to Abu Ali
Dear Judge Lee
I am shocked at the terrible sentence you have handed out to Abu Ali
based on his confession in Saudi Arabia under torture.
As you know, the Saudis are very good at torture, even better than the
Americans in Gtmo.
In no way do the accusations against Abu Ali reach the level of "beyond
a reasonable doubt."
I urge you to release Abu Ali and not make a laughing stock of the
American justice system by sentencing an innocent man to life in prison.
I am a writer and a blogger and I am sure the Muslim community in
America is shocked and disgusted at the cruel punishment meted out to
Surely the Muslim community will not let this pass.
You know Bush lost the elections in part owing to his hateful policies
of war against Muslims. Please do not continue his work against Muslims.
Islam is too strong for you. You won't win by continuing these policies
of hatred and tyranny.

Authentic Islam Emerging In Nigeria.
Islam is Reborn After Every Kerbala. Nigerian Taliban leader
Muhammad Yusuf, head held High, refused to Bow Before Nigerian Army.
He was Shot down in Cold Blood by the Kafir Nigerian troops. Even
in Death he bears witness to Allah [See the symbol of Tawheed which we
circled in red.]
Someone took this photo of Muhammad Yusuf and sent it to the BBC. It
shows that he was captured alive. The army tried to humiliate him and
attempted to make a fake video of him begging the army for mercy. As
the photo shows, he did not show any signs of fear or weakness even
though he is surrounded by Nigerian troops, thirsty for Muslim blood.
The second photo, obviously sent to al-Jazeera, shows the martyr
immediately after his murder. He gave his life purely for the DEEN of
Allah, focused on Allah even as the mercenaries of Zionism and
Imperialism shot him down. May Allah place him in al-Firdaus, in the
company of Shaikh Ahmed Yaseen [Palestine] , Abdur Rasheed Ghazi
[Pakistan] and Malcolm X [USA]. May the houris of Paradise give
him bliss and everlasting joy.

Obama Day 198: U.S. Drone Attack in Pakistan Kills Baitullah
August 6, 2009: Zangra village in Ladda area of South Waziristan.
Reuters reports that a U.S. drone fired two missiles at the home of
Ikramuddin, the father-in-law of Baitullah Mehsud, the Islamic leader
of the Pak Taliban in South Waziristan. Baitullah's wife and two Pak
Taliban were killed in the attack and 5 wounded. The house was
demolished. Baitullah was not there. It took a while for the rubble to
be removed so that his wife's body could be taken out.
All Night Artillery Fire on North Waziristan Villages
During the night of August 3 and 4, Pakistani troops used heavy
artillery and mortars to hit various villages of people suspected of
supporting the Pak Taliban. At least 16 homes were demolished and many
more damaged by heavy artillery fire which continued all night. The
inhabitants had left but scores of livestock were killed. However in
three villages, mortar fire killed civilians. In Haider Khel village, a
villager named Meer Shah was killed along with his wife, his two
daughters, his two sons and his brother. In Chasma village, a mortar
shell killed 2 women and a child. In Machis village, the only child of
his parents was killed. A wave of anger against the army is sweeping
In retaliatory fire by the Pak Taliban, the army's position in Miran
Shah was hit and 4 Pak troops were killed.
Pak Air Attacks, Military Operations in Mohmand, Swat and Dir Areas
of Malakand Division
August 4, 2009: Pak Taliban kidnaped 16 persons connected to the Pak
government, including two troops, in one area of Mohmand agency. In Dir,
Pak air force jets carried out bombing raids killing 5 suspected Pak
Taliban. The Pak army destroyed the homes of two Taliban leaders. The
army is having a problem finding the Taliban and has arrested 27
persons on suspicion. In the towns captured by the army, money is being
pumped in to create "normalcy" but curfew remains in effect except for
several hours during the day.
There was alarm in the Peshawar area on the rumor that suspected Taliban
had been seen in the area.
Pak airforce has announced that it carried out 300 bombing raids on
Swat during the last three months as well as 100 raids on South
Waziristan. F16s supplied by the U.S. were used in the attacks.

police vehicle on Thursday in Helmand province, killing five policemen
and wounding three others, the Interior Ministry said in a statement.
LAGHMAN - Taliban guerrillas ambushed trucks carrying supplies
for NATO troops on a road linking the capital with the eastern region
on Thursday, killing two drivers, the Interior Ministry said.

Militants or farmers? [MSNBC report]
A local police chief said a Western airstrike late Wednesday [Aug.5]
killed five farmers loading cucumbers into a taxi in the rural Zhari
district to the city of Kandahar.
However, a U.S. military spokeswoman said the five were militants
placing explosives in a van.
[New Trend comment: This looks like a random air strike based only on
suspicion, somewhat like police in the U.S. who kill African Americans
on mere suspicion.]
August 1 and 2: According to NATO's International Security Assistance
Force, a French soldier was killed Saturday in a firefight with
Taliban outside Kabul, and two Canadian elite troops were
killed in the south. [ref: Helmand].
Three U.S troops were killed in a Taliban attack in Kandahar
province on Saturday. Three more American troops were killed
Sunday in Wardak province, to the west of Kabul. U.S. military
officials said their convoy first struck a roadside bomb and then came
under small-arms fire. Such coordinated attacks -- combining an initial
explosion and a follow-up ambush -- have increasingly become a hallmark
of the Taliban operating in the country's eastern sector. US says many
Taliban are said to be under the command of Islamic leaders based in
Pakistan's tribal belt, including Sirajuddin Haqqani, leader of
the powerful Haqqani network.
