Spotlight on the last days of Ramadan: We should ask
ourselves what have we gained from Ramadan. This should be
self-evaluation. Did we change our ways? Did we seek Allah's
forgiveness and Mercy? Did we become compassionate towards
others? The blessings of Laylatul Qadr can transform us.
This Night of Power in which the Qur'an was revealed is
calling us to re-shape our lives. We can come out of Ramadan
as pure and unblemished as newborn children. It could be as
if we lived a hundred years longer on this earth and did
much more good than we could have ever done on our own.
Editor's note: Six years back I wrote about the real issues

Islam? What is the role of Israel? This might shock some

Jamaat al-Muslimeen Condemns Israeli Blasphemy Against the
Virgin Mary [Maryam, pbuh]
A recent painting in Israel which depicts Mary [Maryam ,
peace be on her] as a terrorist should be condemned by all
people who are against the violation of the sacred. A second
Israeli painting depicts Mary [Maryam, pbuh] preparing the
baby Jesus, pbuh, to be a terrorist by reading the Qur'an to
him. Faces of Muslim women martyrs who attacked the Israelis
are pasted on famous paintings of Mary, pbuh.
The paintings were removed after there were complaints from
Israelis that they would hurt the feelings of Israeli
families of those killed by Palestinian "suicide bombers."
The Israelis do not realize that inadvertently they might
have told the truth that Jesus and Mary, pbut, would have
supported Palestinian resistance!
We see the Israeli Jews in full violaton of all that is good
and decent and sacred and civilized. They violated the
holiest church of Christianity in Palestine and have
destroyed 130 Palestinian mosques. They are in occupation of
Masjid al-Aqsa and have usurped Palestine by force of arms,
leaving 4,500,000 people as refugees.
The Qur'an has an entire chapter on the Virgin Mary and
love, respect, honor for her and for Jesus, pbuh, are
essential parts of every Muslim's faith. Hence the Israeli
blasphemy must be condemned by every Muslim.

and Mary, peace be on them:

Worship of the Amercan Power Structure: Muslims being
brought like Sheep to a Prayer at the Capitol. September
Doesn't matter if President Obama, the Congress and the
Senate are supporting Israel, bombing Pakistan, occupying
Afghanistan, undercutting Somalia, backing the slaughter in
Nigeria. On September 25 US Muslims in large numbers will be
brought to Washington for a prayer at the Capitol with all
the signs of American power and genocide around them.
The pro-government elements have been hard at work to make
US Muslims think that they and the power structure are
friends. Obama is being presented as the friend of the
Muslims. ISNA, W.D. Muhammad, Hamza Yusuf etc have worked
hard to do the ground work for the depoliticization and
insulation of US Muslims from the Muslim world.
Egypt's rulers are playing an important role. Egypt has its
religious establishment which is sometimes more effective
than that of Saudi Arabia. Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman [the Blind

Mufti Tantawi who frequently pleases the tyrant regime with
Ahmed Dewidar is so much a government man that he stood next
to Bush in the 9.11 services. No real Muslim can be proud of
standing next to Bush. Here is how Dewidar is described in
the publicity material for September 25:
"he stood shoulder to shoulder with US President George W.
Bush and UN Secretary General Kofi Anan at Ground Zero as
Imam of the Islamic Center in Mid-Manhattan to speak on
behalf of the Muslim community to condemn the September 11
The other presenter Ahmed Jebril delights the crowds with
his recitation. The Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, has taught us
that such qaris of the Qur'an who are on the side of taghoot
are destined for hell fire. [Unfortunately many US Muslims
do not know the Qur'anic term taghoot.]
This helps explain September 25
Beware Muslims! Understand the Obama Strategy to Undermine
by Sis. Sofia [The writer teaches English in New York
In the past the attacks of Westerners/Americans
against Islam and Muslims (after 9/11 particularly) were
being done BY THEM overtly.
Now their strategy is to use their "appointed / official "Muslims."
Spokespersons (for the Obama regime) are picked with this in mind,
namely, to have these appointed Muslims make statements in their
discussions / in media, etc. about Islam, the Taleban/ Al-Quaeda, etc.,
and in doing so they are likely to make statements that would
contradict/violate/ Islam or cause them (in their confused "beliefs") to
speak negatively about some Qur'anic ayat or current actions of some
Muslims such as the retaliations of Muslims against U.S. and Nato
attacks in Afghanistan/Pakistan, etc.
So now Muslims are being "used" to do the non-believers'
dirty work to destroy the power of Islam and the Muslim
Ummah. And it is done against a background where Prez. Obama
has set the stage via speeches stating that "they do not hate
Example: Choosing a follower of Agha Khan
(who/which, in my opinion, is a "cult" because I have seen
at first hand how they say their "salat" if one could call it
that--It consists of them sitting in a circle at Maghrib time
in the dark and spending 20-30 minutes reciting all the names
of the past Agha Khans from the first to the rest chronologically.
That is their "prayer")
--a man who has a Ph.D. in the Sociology of Religion(s) as
spokesperson for Islam to the non-Muslim American population--and not
an Imam, who most likely would have good arguments against current
The current Obama regime in league with the rest of
Nato/Europe seems to have a master plan to fight Islam
and Muslims in order to create a world / global power
for a small group of oligarchs (corporations/ zionists/
world "leaders" etc.). If you are familiar with NYC Jewish
politics you can see how they are aligning themselves to get
a Jewish/zionist in the White House in the next U.S. Presidential
election with Mayor Bloomberg as the likely President for a "United
States of America and Israel."

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES Re: HUMAN BODY
by Yasir Khan
SLICE a carrot and it looks just like an eye, right down to
the pattern of the iris. Its a clear clue to the importance
this everyday veg has for vision. Carrots get their orange
colour from a plant chemical called betacarotene, which
reduces the risk of developing cataracts. The chemical also
protects against macular degeneration an age-related sight
problem that affects one in four over-65s. It is the most
common cause of blindness in Britain. But popping a
betacarotene pill doesnt have the same effect, say
scientists at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore
THE gnarled folds of a walnut mimic the appearance of a
human brain - and provide a clue to the benefits. Walnuts
are the only nuts which contain significant amounts of
omega-3 fatty acids. They may also help head off dementia..
An American study found that walnut extract broke down the
protein-based plaques associated with Alzheimers disease.
Researchers at Tufts University in Boston found walnuts
reversed some signs of brain ageing in rats. Dr James
Joseph, who headed the study, said walnuts also appear to
enhance signalling within the brain and encourage new
messaging links between brain cells.
TOMATO [HEART ]
A TOMATO is red and usually has four chambers, just like our
heart. Tomatoes are also a great source of lycopene, a plant
chemical that reduces the risk of heart disease and several
cancers. The Womens Health Study " an American research
programme which tracks the health of 40,000 women " found
women with the highest blood levels of lycopene had 30 per
cent less heart disease than women who had very little
lycopene. Lab experiments have also shown that lycopene
helps counter the effect of unhealthy LDL cholesterol. One
Canadian study, published in the journal Experimental
Biology and Medicine, said there was œconvincing vidence
that lycopene prevented coronary heart disease.
OUR lungs are made up of branches of ever-smaller airways
that finish up with tiny bunches of tissue called alveoli.
These structures, which resemble bunches of grapes, allow
oxygen to pass from the lungs to the blood stream. One
reason that very premature babies struggle to survive is
that these alveoli do not begin to form until week 23 or 24
of pregnancy. A diet high in fresh fruit, such as grapes,
has been shown to reduce the risk of lung cancer and
emphysema. Grape seeds also contain a chemical called
proanthocyanidin, which appears to reduce the severity of
asthma triggered by allergy.20
A nice ˜holey cheese, like Emmenthal, is not just good for
your bones, it even resembles their internal structure. And
like most cheeses, it is a rich source of calcium, a vital
ingredient for strong bones and reducing the risk of
osteoporosis later in life. Together with another mineral
called phosphate, it provides the main strength in bones but
also helps to ˜power muscles. Getting enough calcium in the
diet during childhood is crucial for strong bones. A study
at Columbia University in New York showed teens who
increased calcium intake from 800mg a day to 1200mg equal
to an extra two slices of cheddar - boosted their bone
density by six per cent.
GINGER [STOMACH ]
Root ginger, commonly sold in supermarkets, often looks just
like the stomach. So its interesting that one of its biggest
benefits is aiding digestion. The Chinese have been using it
for over 2,000 years to calm the stomach and cure nausea,
while it is also a popular remedy for motion sickness. But
the benefits could go much further.
Tests on mice at the University of Minnesota found injecting
the chemical that gives ginger its flavour slowed down the
growth rate of bowel tumours
BANANA (SMILE) [ DEPRESSION ]
Cheer yourself up and put a smile on your face by eating a
banana. The popular fruit contains a protein called
tryptophan. Once it has been digested, tryptophan then gets
converted in a chemical neurotransmitter called serotonin.
This is one of the mo st important mood-regulating chemicals
in the brain and most anti-depressant drugs work by
adjusting levels of serotonin production. Higher levels are
associated with better moods.
Slice a mushroom in half and it resembles the shape of the
human ear. And guess what? Adding it to your cooking could
actually improve your hearing. Thats because mushrooms are
one of the few foods in our diet that contain vitamin D.
This particular vitamin is important for healthy bones, even
the tiny ones in the ear that transmit sound to the brain.
BROCCOLI [Re:CANCER ]
Close-up, the tiny green tips on a broccoli head look like
hundreds of cancer cells. Now scientists know this
disease-busting veg can play a crucial role in preventing
the disease. Last year, a team of researchers at the US
National Cancer Institute found just a weekly serving of
broccoli was enough to reduce the risk of prostate cancer by
45 per cent. In Britain, prostate cancer kills one man every

New York police arrest Jewish gang trafficking organs of
[ 08/09/2009 - 10:52 AM ]
ALGERIA, (PIC)-- An Algerian official revealed Sunday the
New York city police were able to catch a Jewish gang
involved in the abduction of children from Algeria and
trafficking of their organs headed by Levy Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum was directly involved in the recent case of
trading human organs which raised a storm of reactions in
the US and Israel.
Dr. Mustafa Khayatti, the head of the Algerian national
committee for the development of health and research, said
that the arrest of the gang came after Interpol
investigations showed that Algerian children were abducted
from cities in western Algeria and taken to Morocco in order
to harvest their kidneys and traffic them in Israel and the
US for $20,000 and $100,000 dollars each.
"The arrest of Jewish organ trafficking gangs does not mean
that the danger has gone, top officials and specialists in
this issue assert that there are other Jewish gangs who
remain active in several Arab countries," Dr. Khayatti
US authorities had arrested 44 people including Rabbis and
mayors in New Jersey last July; they all were prosecuted for
money laundering activities and sale of human organs.
Last month, a report issued by Aftonbladet, a newspaper
Swedish, accused Israeli soldiers of kidnapping Palestinians
in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip to kill them and
steal their organs, indicating a possible link between these
crimes and the mafia of human organs detected in the US.
In another related context, the humanitarian relief
committee affiliated with the union of Egyptian doctors
declared Monday its intention to organize an international
and Arab media campaign to expose the Israeli crimes of
stealing organs from Palestinians.
The committee called in a statement for opening an
investigation into these crimes, stressing that a number of
Israeli surgeons are involved in harvesting human organs of
Dr. Abdelkader Hegazy, the head of the committee, said that
the union of Egyptian doctors received a letter from the
Jordanian union about the ways of cooperation in prosecuting
every Israeli involved in committing such crimes.

New Trend editorial 6 years back
9.11: Is Peace Possible? Can Military Power Subdue Islam?
Let the American People and the Muslim Resistance Talk. Give
Peace a Chance
Should Not Be Allowed to Block the Road to
After the tears, the anguish and the displays of national
spirit on the September 11, 2003, it appears that no one is
asking the key question: Is peace possible? Or, what should
we do to bring about peace?
The question of peace becomes thinkable only when we
consider why we have war. The Bush administration and just
about all the people on the media have simplified the
problem. The explanations we get from them about 9.11 are:
1. 9.11 was an expression of evil.
2. "They" are the enemies of freedom.
3. They hate our freedom and democracy and they want to
impose their theocracy on us.
4. They attacked us because they hate our way of life.
If these expressions are true, it would mean that America
will have to wage war till "evil" is ended and American
"freedom" and "democracy" are accepted by the whole world.
Serious gaps exist in the American understanding of the
world. Most Americans don't realize that most Muslims still
don't see America as the enemy. When Muslims demonstrate
peacefully against America, they are actually banking on the
moral sensibilities of America. Those who want to fight do
The Muslims' mental inability to see America as the enemy
was expressed in the conspiracy theory that 9.11 was done by
the Israelis. How could Muslims have done it? With a sense
of self-contempt, the Muslims would say, we are
organizationally and scientifically unable to do 9.11. That
conspiracy theory, though started by pro-Iran Al-Manar TV,
became extremely popular in the Muslim world. It simply
meant: We can't do something like that to you. We do not
consider you the enemy.
[Our analysis has been that the 9.11 attack was probably
carried out by an autonomious elite Islamic cadre which
perished in the attack. Till now, no link to the attacks has
been found and brought to light. Hence, there is no evidence
The Bush administration did not listen to the Muslim world
and carried out the ferocious bombing of Afghanistan. The
bombing continued during the holy month of Ramadan. Even
General Musharraf was concerned and pleaded with America not
to bomb in Ramadan.
The bombing of Afghanistan turned vast sections of the
Muslim population, especially in Pakistan, India, Bangladesh
and Indonesia against America, UK and Australia.
Since then support for the Taliban and Al-Qaida has spread
to all corners of the Muslim world. Osama Bin Laden has
become a folk hero not only in Asia but also in Africa. Col.
Qadafi recently expressed jealousy that Africans, instead of
admiring him as they used to do, sing the praises of Osama
and wear his pictures on their shirts (something Osama would
be the first to condemn). [ABC interview by Stephanapoulis.]
It is safe to say that the 19 alleged hijackers, led by the
Egyptian Mohammed Atta, are still not popular in the Muslim
world, which indicates that the people still do not hate
America. They admire Osama because they see him as a figure
from Islam's legendary past, a defender of Islam, a new
Khalid ibn Al-Waleed, but not as a killer of Americans.
Then President Bush invaded Iraq. That was the ultimate
folly. Bush's Israeli advisers saw Iraq as a walkover, even
easier than Afghanistan. At the cost of less than 137
killed, the U.S. entered Baghdad, but then things started
going badly. The U.S. is now bogged down in a country where
it is beginning to realize that it is not welcome.
Meanwhile in Afghanistan, the TALIBAN are making a big
comeback. Only the U.S. air force stands between the Taliban
and Kabul. Recently, it took the U.S. air force NINE DAYS to
dislodge a force of 100 Taliban. Right now, nearly 1,000
Taliban are operating openly in southeastern and
southwestern Afghanistan. Mullah Omar has named a Jihad
Council to organize the resistance.
The realities of the post-9.11 world are:
1. The U.S. can project its power around the world and has
unequaled fire power.
2. The armed Islamic movement exists in 60 countries and is
based on faith and martyrdom.
3. The Muslim masses are steadily moving against America and
steadily becoming recruitable by the jihad led by Osama and
4. There is little chance that the masses will turn against
Osama etc. and support America.
5. Every new projection of power by America adds to the
alienation of the Muslim world and brings more support to
6. ARMED ISLAMIC RESISTANCE in Palestine, Kashmir and
Chechnia, though independent of Al-Qaida, could coalesce
against the U.S. Till now none of them are fighting the U.S.
ROOT OF THE PROBLEM IS ISRAEL
The media pundits are not telling the American people that
the Muslim world's quarrel is with Israel. Observers say
that the attack on 9.11 was on an American target which
comes closest to being the nerve center of Israeli-American
cooperation in a city which is more Israeli than American.
There can be little doubt that if the U.S. stops helping
Israel and withdraws its military forces in Iraq and the
naval and air armadas in Arabia (surrounding the Ka'aba) in
Kuwait, Egypt, Qatar, UAE, there would be no cause for war.
America needs the oil and the oil producing countries are
happy to sell it. Military pressure is not needed.
The U.S. should realize that unless the Jews withdraw from
Palestine, the forces of Islam will continue to fight. The
U.S. has to choose between International Jewry and global
At this time, peace seems far away. America is so confident
of its military power that it thinks of bigger and bigger
bombs, more and more troops, more and more money to buy
collaborators. Somehow Bush does not understand that in a
strange, almost mystical way, he is helping the Muslim world
to wake up and stand up and fight. With the bombing of
Afghanistan and the slaughter of Taliban prisoners in Qila
Jangi, there was a modicum of awakening, so much so that
when General Musharraf made the blunder of holding
elections, Islamic governments were elected along the entire
Pakistani frontier with Afghanistan.
With the bombing, invasion and occupation of Iraq, Bush did
a big favor to the Muslims. These six months have seen a
quantum jump in Muslim awakening and resistance to the U.S.
Now if the U.S. captures or kills Osama, or Ayman, or
Saddam, there will be a new upsurge in Islamic mobilization.
If Israel kills Shaikh Yasin and other Islamic leaders,
thousands of new martyrs will enter the battlefield.
If the U.S. attacks Syria or Iran, or, most of all, "Saudi"
Arabia, that will be "best" for the Muslim awakening. When
it is faith versus power, faith is going to win, and there
are one billion Muslims in the world. The Zionist Jews won't
have a place to hide except perhaps in the U.S. itself.
These are the Muslims most loyal to America. The richest
among them voted en bloc for Bush. Irony of ironies, the
U.S. is hunting them down. The Jews see them as the only
force in America not in their control. Hence we see Steve
Emerson, Daniel Pipes and other swine urging America to
treat its most loyal Muslims as "potential terrorists."
These same Muslims were first used by Bush to tell the
Muslim world that America is not against Islam. Those days
are gone. Even the most loyal of these bootlickers cannot
get on TV now. Jews, including Israelis, and, increasingly,
Hindus hold sway on the TV screens.
If there are still some voices of sanity in the American
power structure, they should think of asking America's
Muslims of [the possibilities] of starting talks with the
armed Islamic movement. Without talks, without channels of
communications, peace is not possible.
The U.S. is holding 600-800 Muslims from 50 countries in
cages in Guanatanamo Bay. Any analyst can see from the
nationalities represented, that the spirit of Jihad is now
global. Killing and arrests of however many Muslims is a
Even when the USSR and the US were in nuclear confrontation,
they had channels of communication. Why can't the U.S.
communicate with the Muslims who want to fight? How long
will America continue to fool itself that General Musharaf,
Hosni Mubarak, King Abdullah, Crown Prince Abdullah, Karzai,
the Algerian generals etc represent the Muslim world.
Peace is possible. Let the ZIONIST JEWS get out of the way
so that the American and Muslim peoples can communicate.
Give peace a chance.

Pak Army Victory in Khyber Agency Undermined by Lashkare
Islam: Khassadars Refuse to Fight
September 13, 2009: As New Trend noted in its previous
issue, Gen. Kayani's troops smashed the headquarters of
Lashkare Islam and cleared the way for the re-supply of NATO
troops in Afghanistan through this key entry point.
Following the Pak army attack, Mangal Khan, the Lashkare
Islam leader, warned soldiers in the locally recruited
militia to throw away their weapons or face the consequences
at the hands of the resistance. Within a couple of days,
more than 750 members of the government militia known as
Khassadars deserted. Kayani is now in a fix and his
officers are preparing lists of deserters for penalties.
Khyber is still not safe for NATO re-supply.
Also on 9.13, in the Bara area of Khyber, Islamic fighters
hit a convoy of elite Pakistani troops known as the FC
[Frontier Corp] with a roadside bomb killing 3 and wounding
4. The FC which used to be neutral towards America has been

For the last 8 days, Pak Taliban spokesman in Swat, Haji
Muslim Khan and another Talib commander Mehmood Khan,
were in peace talks with Pak army officers for a cease fire in
war torn Swat.
The Pak Taliban reps were given guarantees for their
emergence from the mountains for peace talks. Suddenly the
army broke off the talks and arrested both of them. Muslim
Khan's arrest was given as a gift to the US on September 11.
Looks like he was beaten up and tortured. With his turban
off and injuries to his face, the upper part of his body was
shown on MSNBC and other US media on 9.11.
Under torture Muslim Khan revealed the location of three
other Pak Taliban commanders who were in the vicinity of
Mingora. A large scale army operation was launched and the
three were taken by surprise and captured the same day.
It's a serious blow for the Pak Taliban in Swat because
Muslim Khan is fluent in 5 languages and was able to
communicate the Islamic viewpoint to the media both in
Pakistan and overseas. The five people captured are part of
Maulvi Fazlullah's Shoora.
During the torture [or investigation as the army calls it]
Muslim Khan revealed that Maulvi Fazlullah suffered serious
injuries from the Pak army bombardment and could not get
medical treatment. He is now totally incapaciated, Khan
said. Pak army has launched a big operation to capture
September 13: Maulvi Fazlullah, known among the people as
the Lion of Swat, broke his silence and sent out a recorded
message. He admitted that the capture of five of his Shoora
members is a serious blow for the Pak Taliban in Swat. He
said that Pak army violated the peace talks undertaken by
the Pak Taliban in good faith. and in the future the Pak
Taliban will not accept invitations to talk to the army. The
resistance will be slowed down by this blow, he said, and
will have to re-organize.
[New Trend comment: This is almost like a replay of Africans
dealing with the British or the Native Americans dealing
with the White colonizers. The indigenous people do not
realize that the word of the army led by Kayani means

IRAQ: Prisoners protest in Abu Ghraib Prison on 9.11. US
Aircraft Used to Quell Riot
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Prisoners started a fire during a riot
at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison, U.S. and Iraqi officials said,
resulting in some injuries before wardens began evacuating
the jail that became notorious for U.S. detainee abuse.
Namir Mohammed, a local council member in western Baghdad's
Abu Ghraib district, said the inmates set fire to mattresses
on Thursday following a search of the facility for mobile
phones and banned drugs or medication.
Prison officials said inmates were unhappy about conditions
at the jail, which became known across the world as a site
of U.S. soldiers' abuse and sexual humiliation of Iraqi
detainees after the ouster of Saddam Hussein in 2003.
"Today on orders from the government we started evacuating
the prison to other jails inside Baghdad," a prison warden
who declined to be named told Reuters by telephone.
"A government committee is handling evacuation. We don't
know where they went."
He added others would be removed Saturday but he did not
know if some would be left behind.
Pictures of abuse at Abu Ghraib sparked indignation
worldwide and helped fuel a bloody insurgency in Iraq that
has only begun to fade in the past 18 months.
The prison has since been taken over by Iraqi officials and
was reopened in February with a new name. Iraqi officials
plan to hold only a fraction of the tens of thousands of
prisoners it housed under Saddam and promise improved

At-Tauba (The Repentance) 9:71 The Believers, men and women,
are protectors one of another: they enjoin what is just, and
forbid what is evil: they observe regular prayers, practice
regular charity, and obey Allah and His Messenger. On them
will Allah pour His mercy: for Allah is Exalted in power,
Wise. At-Tauba (The Repentance) 9:75 Amongst them are men
who made a covenant with Allah, that if He bestowed on them
of His bounty, they would give (largely) in charity, and be
truly amongst those who are righteous.
