Verse of the Week

"O you who believe! do not violate the signs appointed by Allah nor the sacred month, nor interfere with the offerings, nor the sacrificial animals with garlands, nor those going to the sacred house seeking the grace and pleasure of their Lord; and when you are free from the obligations of the pilgrimage, then hunt, and let not the hatred of people - because they hindered you from the Sacred Masjid - incite you to exceed the limits, and help one another in goodness and piety, and do not help one another in sin and aggression; and be careful of your duty to Allah; surely Allah is severe in requiting evil."
-Holy Qur'an 5:2

Great News: Muslims Rallying to the Defense of Ayesha Siddiqa [r.a]

By Br. Kaukab Siddique

"Those who slander chaste, indiscreet and believing women, are cursed in this life and in the Hereafter. For them is a grievous Chastisement." (The Qur'an 24:23)

Saudi Arabia's top religious authority, Darul Ifta, last month issued a FATWA condemning attacks on the Mother of the Believers, the daughter of Abu Bakr, r.a., the beloved wife of Muhammad, pbuh, Ayesha Siddiqa, r.a.

The FATWA came after a Shi'ite from Kuwait attacked Ayesha, r.a. He is living under British protection in London. Many Shi'as have been slandering Ayesha, r.a., probably because she opposed the problematic caliphate of Ali, r.a., but this time the Saudis responded. We congratulate and thank them.

The angry responses throughout the Middle East to the Kuwaiti Shi'ite's attack on the best of women after Maryam, r.a., alerted the Iranians, and Ayatollah Khamene'i issued a ruling forbidding Shi'as from attacking Ayesha, r.a. This is hopeful news. Hopefully the Sh'ites will listen to the Ayatollah.

I urge the Muslims to look at the Zionists and right wing extremists who routinely insult Ayesha, r.a., and slander the Prophet, pbuh, in the process. These enemies of Islam, the Zionist Jews, are indulging in blasphemy against Ayesha, r.a., which no Muslim can tolerate. It is an attack on all Muslim women whose leader is Ayesha, r.a., the Mother of the Believers.

Ayesha, r.a., orator, poet, teacher, scholar, narrator of Hadith, saintly in her behavior, pious to the extreme, generous without limits, leader of men and women, is the target of the enemies of Islam and sectarians of various brands.

This assault on a woman, whom the Qur'an extols, was begun by Salman Rushdie, the darling of many American Jews. To the Shi'ites, I would say, Ali, r.a., whipped those who insulted Ayesha, r.a. If you are real Shi'ites, whip those among you who are insulting our Mother. If those countless millions who honor Ayesha, r.a., turn against Shi'ites, your situation will be untenable.

Innocent Muslims have little Awareness of Zionist Moves

On November 12 at Masjid Nur, Jamaat al-Muslimeen's literature was given to 51 people after Juma' salat. There were 4 pages including Dr. Shabazz' brilliant analysis of Zionism as a form of racism plus the Islamic Shoora's resolutions against Israel and on opposition to US wars against Pakistan, Iraq and Afghanistan. One resolution rejects censorship of holocaust revisionism. Sis. Nadrat's introduction to Sis. Karima al-Amin's interview was included with a referral to the full text on the New Trend web site.

The last page reported on Jamaate Islami Pakistan's expose of Obama's visit to India.

This Masjid is located in White Marsh, 15 minutes south of Baltimore. The imam is a soft spoken Syrian who puts people to sleep with his morality stories. He has a track record of not speaking against kuffar and oppressors. Most of the crowd is Arab, very quiet, with a sprinkling of Pakistanis and a very few African Americans.

"Take the Qur'an for Guidance in all Matters"

A Talk with Islamic School Students

On November 7, the day after the Shoora, Imam Badi Ali invited Dr. Kaukab Siddique and Sis. Kristi to speak to young people at the Islamic Sunday School in Greensboro, North Carolina. Both the senior and junior classes consisted of students from various Middle Eastern countries.

Br. Kaukab talked to the students about the role of young people in the life of the Prophet, pbuh, and in the narration of Hadith. He gave examples from the lives of Ali, Ayesha, Abdullah ibn Zubair, Abdullah ibn Umar, Abdullah ibn Abbas (Allah be pleased with them all) to show the importance of the very young people in Islam. He also gave them examples to show how persuasive is America's mass culture and how it targets youths and makes them slowly drift away from Islam.

The students were enthusiastic about Sis. Kristi's presentation. A recent convert to Islam from Texas, she is well versed in the Bible and excited about the Qur'an. Sis. Kristi urged the students to rely on the Qur'an for truth and encouraged them to reaffirm what they're told about Islam by searching the Qur'an and authentic Hadith to ensure accuracy. Sometimes, she said, people who teach about Islam take for granted that they know Islam but do not take the time to show their students supporting texts. In reply to questions, she supported the duty of parents to be strict and to teach their children obedience to Islam so their lives can be shaped Islamically at a very early age, including hijab. Without discipline, the best outcome is not possible. She concluded by saying that although we may not understand or even agree with all of the 'rules' of Islam, Allah knows best and we must believe He has given us right guidance, and our belief is displayed in our obedience.

Jamaat al-Muslimeen Congratulates Imam Badi Ali on Organizing Successful National Islamic Shoora

The November meeting of Jamaat al-Muslimeen's Islamic Shoora Council was held in Greensboro, NC. The host was Imam Badi Ali. He is imam of an important mosque in the area. He has an effective team of workers and is influential in the Muslim community.

The arrangements were efficient and discounted by local Muslim businesses. The halal meals were delicious, and included Moroccan and Palestinian cuisine. The prayers were on time and led by Dr. Abdulalim Shabazz, the philosopher of the Jamaat who also recited verses from the Qur'an for the concluding d'ua.

Imam Badi Ali is a human rights activist who wants a peaceful solution to the problems facing the Muslim ummah. He is anti-war and is a strong critic of Zionism and imperialism. He carries out in depth critique of US foreign policy. He is trusted and loved by the Muslim community in the area owing to his total commitment to service and compassionate outreach.

Owing to the countrywide Zionist and right wing extremist attacks on Br. Kaukab Siddique, Imam Badi insisted on and received near full attendance by the Shoora members for this meeting. Jamaat al-Muslimeen congratulates him and his team for their hard work in bringing together a successful Shoora.

What are Spiritual Requirements and Character Needed for Islamic Work?

At the National Islamic Shoora of JAM, November 6, Br. Shamim Siddiqui's books were gifted to the Shoora activists. Sixty copies of these books were handed out by the activist and elder Sis. Ashira, Secretary General, on behalf of JAM's masjid in Baltimore. The titles of seven of these books are:

Dawah and Its Objective
Methodology of Dawah
The Revival
Greatest Need of Man
The Commitment
The Dawah program
Provision for Akhirah
(This is a translation of the Arabic classic Zaad al-Ma'ad)

Br. Shamim Siddiqui is an elderly scholar from what used to be East Pakistan. He lives in Long Island, New York. As far as we know, he has done more Da'wa work in America than anyone else. He has produced a whole range of literature which is very valuable in spite of some technical errors and typos.

Bogus Trial of JFK "terrorists."

Two Muslims Trapped by Informant, Convicted.

Jamaat al-Muslimeen's Shoora has been informed of the bogus trial of Defrietas and Abdul Kadir who were entrapped by an informant into what came to be known as Jfk plot.

The story is like a bad joke. The informant, Stevan Francis, infiltrated the Muslims and made the Muslims say things which could be construed to mean that they wanted to attack JFK International airport.

How anyone could blow up an airport, when he has no military training, was actually believed by the American court. The two have been convicted and face life in prison.

A third Muslim is yet to be convicted in the same case. They are good Shi'ite Muslims and wanted to get help from Iran to set up schools. That is their real crime.

"Genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial, or religious group: ....Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part..."

Youth Justice Sunday
By Nadrat Siddique
October 31, 2010

Baltimore, MD-It was the perfect day to break some chains. Hundreds of people rallied outside Paul Lawrence Dunbar High School, in the heart of black community and just blocks away from Baltimore's infamous Central Booking detention facility. They were protesting the building of a new youth prison. If construction goes on as planned, this would be the city's ninth prison, built absent any mandate from the majority black population. But Baltimore's prison building rampage would not end there. Plans are underway for the subsequent building of a tenth prison, this one for women.
Under a fluttering red, black, and green Afrocentric flag, religious, student and community leaders condemned the city's plan to jail the youth instead of educating them. The event began with the singing of the Black Anthem "Lift Every Voice." Then Deverick Murray, a Towson University student, popularly known as the Political Poet, took the stage. Stating the rally's goals in verse, he said:

"I greet you today and bring you our purpose,
Assuring you that under this alliance not one thing can hurt us.
With steadfast hearts, and no distractions may divert us.
We are here today not only to stop this youth jail,
But to convince us, to construct plans
Knowing that if God, Allah, and the elders are here,
Then the world can be against us.
We are here to let the state know we have ran out of fear
And showing that we will stand together to protect what we hold dear.
We are here because they had enough money for jails,
But they had no interest in making sure that we don't fail...."

Youth energies fueled the protest. Leamon Harris, of Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle, which organized the protest along with the Kinetics Faith and Justice Network, the Baltimore Algebra Project, and other groups, said that even the best inner city schools were a continuum of institutionalized racism. Speaking of black student athletes, he said "They become slaves to the brands at a young age because they are mentally colonized, helping a government that doesn't support them or their people unless they play the game. What if they stopped playing football or basketball until construction of the youth jail was stopped, or the police officers taken out of the schools, or classes that offered a real discussion of black history put in place?"

Deverick Murray wrote a powerful rap in support of the event, entitled "I'll be Damned" (referring to the resolve of the protest organizers against the locking up of the youth). It circulated broadly on Facebook and elsewhere leading up to the event. Murray, Harris, and Towson University student leader Adam Jackson successfully mobilized large numbers of high school and college students for the protest.

The event was emceed by its chief organizer, Afrocentric pastor and community leader Heber Brown. Brown is known for his courageous and outspoken stance on many issues, and has spoken at rallies against Israeli attacks on Gaza.

A few days prior to Youth Justice Sunday, Pastor Brown and two companions stood with megaphones outside an endorsement party hosted by a local chapter of AFSME [a major U.S. labor union—editor] for Mayor O'Malley. As O'Malley passed, they called out: "Gov. O'Malley, what about the $104 million dollar youth jail? Can you speak to that sir? Yeah back to slavery for black children?" An AFSME representative approached the pastor, and wagging his finger at him, told Brown he was being "tacky" by challenging the governor. Since the pastor and his companions had officially been invited to the endorsement party, they went inside. Once inside, they were cornered by the AFSME director and his assistants, and threateningly ordered to leave the building.
At the rally, it was clear that the Pastor was not fazed by the gestapo tactics. Youth Justice Sunday, he proclaimed, was about self-determination for black people.

Delegate Jill Carter, the rare local politician who'd accepted Pastor Brown's invitation to speak, took her turn at the mic. Jared Ball, of Voxunion—a D.C.-based independent media collective—spoke. In the audience were Maria Allwine, Green Party candidate for Maryland governor; Jack Young, City Council president; and Dr. Ray Winbush of Morgan State University, internationally acclaimed reparations activist and author,

Then Min. Carlos Muhammad came to the stage.

He is Louis Farrakhan's Baltimore representative, based out of Muhammad Mosque No. 1. The mosque is located on the 3200 block of Garrison Boulevard. Much of the boulevard is impoverished, a showcase of slums (Indians and Pakistanis are amongst the biggest slum lords), liquor stores (frequently Arab owned), and cheesy corner markets (Korean owners, with their exorbitantly priced goods, hidden behind protective bars). The mosque has worked to uplift area youth for years, ridding the neighborhood of much of its vice. But a mile or so down the road from the mosque, drugs, alcohol, and prostitution are rampant.

The minister accompanied on stage by his wife and two FOI (Fruit of Islam), greeted the people with "As-salaam alaikom." He asked for a show of hands by those who had a family member, close friend, or loved one in prison. Easily two-thirds of the crowd raised their hands. With the air of a battle-hardened warrior, he offered words of encouragement to the crowd before leaving the stage.

Six Baltimore Algebra Project youth took the stage.

The Algebra Project is a youth advocacy group which provides highly effective peer-to-peer tutoring for inner city youth. But BAP doesn't only tutor. When I moved back to Baltimore around 2002, I was astonished to find very young students from the organization blocking the streets to call attention to the glaring disparities within the education system and racism in the schools. They were articulate, organized, disciplined, and unrelenting in their demands.

The youth began with solemn speeches, holding the complete attention of the crowd. Then, three of them broke into melodic chants: "Don't build it, don't build it, O' Malley check the rally." Red "X"s, plastered on the jackets of Algebra Project members and supporters, swayed gently to the melody. One of BAP's talented young hiphop artists performed. It was dusk, and the crowd seemed energized.

Adam Jackson, Towson University student and Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle activist, spoke briefly. Then Rev. Kinji Scott, told the crowd, "We tired of being shoved around! Are you ready? You ain't ready! If you're ready, follow me!"

Scott, Jackson, Murray, and others led the march to the site of the proposed youth prison, chanting "Educate, don't incarcerate!" The procession stretched for several blocks, finally arriving at a vacant lot, encircled by a fence—the site of the proposed youth prison. A sign read "State Property."

In a dramatic action, reminiscent of the Storming of the Bastille, student activists pushed with their bodies against the entry gate. To the crowd chants of, "Break that lock," they used the wire cutters to weaken and finally break the padlock holding the gate shut.

A small number of protestors flooded through the gate. March organizers blared a warning over the megaphone: no one was to enter the fenced area without having completed civil disobedience training. The activists inside the fence joined hands in a solemn prayer. They intended to be arrested to call attention to the city's funding of prison building over education. It was Sunday, and the civil disobedience action was taking place directly across from an existing prison facility. The protestors awaiting arrest waited. And waited. And waited. For once, the police were nowhere in sight.

Realizing the civil disobedience was not to materialize, the organizers gathered up the signs carried by the procession. Determined their message be heard, they symbolically scattered books across the property, and with some effort, hammered placards bearing the words "Educate, don't incarcerate!" into the rocky ground. Then, against the backdrop of Central Booking's fading red brick and barbwire, they held a brief press conference before departing.

On the empty lot slated to cage the children of the poor, the pages of books fluttered in the wind.


Islam says, "Free the slave." References to "freeing captives" abound in the Qur'an. To me, Islam is synonymous with justice, and it is not justice to jail a man because he is hungry and stole a loaf of bread. Or lock up a youth who delivers a few ounces of marijuana across town to pay his mother's rent. I know of grocery stores located near the projects where armed security officers guard the exits. This country hates poor people, and is willing to kill or at least jail them for stealing food. Islam, known for its stringent justice, exempts exactly one category of person from sharia penalties for theft: the person who is hungry or starving. Prisons were unknown during the time of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Ditto during the reign of the four rightly guided caliphs—Abu Bakr (RA), Umar (RA), Uthman (RA), and Ali (RA)—which followed immediately after. A person who violated social norms was banished from society, ostracized for a limited time, or in the case of a very serious crime, subjected to a one-time harsh punishment. He was not indefinitely placed in a tiny, insect-infested, filthy, overcrowded, freezing cell, to be sodomized, treated like an animal, or forced to urinate and defecate in front of others. Nor was his labor used to profit big business. Of the vast number of hadith (narrations of Prophetic tradition) in circulation, virtually none talk about locking up or harshly punishing children.

The U.S. boasts 7.3 million people in jail, on probation, or on parole at year end—one in every 31 adults. 2.3 million people are held in adult prison or jail (including some children). In addition, 92,800 children are held in juvenile detention centers. The rate of Black incarceration is 2,468 per 100,000 persons. For Whites, that rate is 409 per 100,000. So, Black youth are far more likely to be locked up than Whites. And unless one subscribes to some incredibly antiquated, racist, and scientifically invalid theories, it can't be because one group is inherently more criminal than the other.

Imperial AmeriKKKa, which sends its armadas throughout the world teaching others how to live, needs desperately to rethink a system which is clearly unjust, for injustice cannot be indefinitely sustained. Just as Gaza is one vast prison camp for Palestinians, Baltimore [substitute virtually any major U.S. city here] through its School-to-Prison pipeline, is the slave labor pool for the Prison-Industrial complex. But not, inshallah, if Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle, Kinetics Faith and Justice Network, and the Baltimore Algebra Project have their way.

Oppression in Washington, DC

Police Hold Islamic Women at Gunpoint, Harass Imam Musa
November 11 Al-Sabiqun Press Release

Many of us are aware of disturbing incidents involving police forces in the U.S. Many times, their brutality goes unnoticed and undocumented, but every once in a while, the heinous crimes committed by those who've sworn to "uphold the public safety" are brought to light.

On the afternoon of November 3, 2010, DC police, for no stated reason, held at gunpoint two Muslim sisters, both of whom are respected teachers in our Southeast DC Islamic home-schooling co-op (based at Masjid Al-Islam)--one of whom was Imam Musa's wife. Though neither of the sisters were taken in, Imam Musa was called onto the scene and, after bringing public attention to the blatant harassment of the two sisters, was arrested. Though he was released later in the evening, this incident has brought to the surface several months and years of harassment and pestering carried out by the local police on behalf of "higher powers". After the incident, Imam Musa prepared an open letter to the DC police, which was posted on police cars and distributed to local residents.

On a related noted, only a few days after the incident with the DC police, Imam Musa was coincidentally (by Allah's will) featured on an RT news piece in which he was asked to comment on the killing of 22-year old Oscar Grant in Oakland, CA, at the hands of a BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) police officer who was recently sentenced. On January 1, 2009, Grant was shot and killed by Johannes Mehserle while he was lying restrained on a train platform. The shooting was captured on several cell phone cameras and the footage is widely available on the Internet. A few days ago, on November 5, 2010, Mehserle was sentenced to two years, minus time served.

Aga Khan: The Snake in the Grass

Ismaili Leader working for Acceptance of Israel by Shi'as

Syrian Ruler is a Shi'ite

Aga Khan's interview published in the French journal Politique International [Spring 2010, issue # 127] has been translated into English and published on the Aga Khani web site Simerg.

The Aga Khan claims in the interview that Shi'as must accept Israel and that this acceptance is a requirement for peace. He specifically mentions Shi'as in Iraq, Bahrain and Lebanon and notes that Bashar al-Assad is a Shi'ite. He concludes that French President Sarkozy is on this wave length.

Brother Kaukab,

My prayers have been with you throughout this whole ordeal and it pains me greatly to see what monsters such as these have said about you.

If you have the time and assuming your nerves are intact, please consider coming on my program to talk about this.

In the meantime, I, my wife and 9 children will continue our prayers that God send a legion of angels to protect you from these evil doers.

Re: Israel behind anti-Siddiqe Blitz [From one of "God's Chosen" People]

Dr Kaukab Siddique

I think you should update your resume and in\" Areas of Expertise\" add: zoological hatred of the Jews in general and Jewish State in particular, expert in \"truth about Holocaust\". After the Gaza operation you friends arabs protesters in L.A. carried posters saying \'Jews go back to gas chambers\'. Being such an expert in Holocaust you should have advised them to change posters to \" Jews go back to what ? recreational chambers ? health barracks ? Nazi resorts ? You should know better, you are the expert. Why don\'t you direct your efforts and expertise to your country - Pakistan and try to help moving it out of Middle Ages. Or maybe having few nukes (with concept stolen from Einstein and other Jews and Christians) is enough to be part of civilization ? You are very sick man, Dr. Siddique and it is chromosome related.


What Dr. Siddique said about Israel is Accurate.

[A lot of hate mail was received, mostly from Jews, but there has been a growing flow of supportive mail. Here is one sent by a Palestinian to Dr. Nelson, President of Lincoln, with a copy to Dr. Siddique.]

President Nelson,

I would like to thank you for standing up for Professor Siddique, a courageous man with integrity and intellectual honesty. As a Palestinian-American born and raised in Washington DC, I am very happy to see free speech protected, especially when this free speech is supported by facts. Israel is a racist apartheid nation in clear violation of many UN resolutions and International Laws pertaining to their illegal occupation of Palestinian land. Everything Professor Siddique mentioned with regards to Israel is accurate and well documented by the UN, World Court, Red Cross, and many human rights organizations around the world.
The good news to report is that more and more people are now realizing that Israel has become a political and economic liability for America. Once again, thank you very much for standing up for this great professor and please do not surrender to the zionist pro-war media people.

Hizb-ut-Tahrir Rallies Across the Country for Caliphate

By Naveed Butt [Official Spokesman of Hizb-ut-Tahrir]

Hizb ut-Tahrir conducted dozens of 'Khilafah Rallies' and demos throughout the country; thousands attended. Seven activists were arrested.

The purpose of rallies was to make the people and people of power realize that real change is only possible through Khilafah

According to its announced campaign, Hizb ut-Tahrir conducted more than forty Khilafah rallies on 5th of November in all major cities, including Peshawar, Islamabad, Lahore, Rahim Yar Khan, Multan and Karachi which were attended by thousands of people. Despite tight security enforced by the government, the brave shebab of Hizb ut-Tahrir conducted protests in Musjid-e-shuhada area Lahore, Blue Area Islamabad, near Press Club Peshawar and Jahangir Park Karachi.

Yesterday, the government arrested three activists of Hizb ut-Tahrir whilst today four more activists of Rawalpindi were taken. It is worthy of mention that right at the time of Jummah, when Hizb ut-Tahrir was about to conduct rallies, a blast took place in a mosque of Darra Adam Kheil, which served to distraction for the media. This is not the first time that the government and US private agencies have conducted such underhand activities in order to divert the attention of people and media.

However Hizb wants to tell the government and America that whatever they do, the call of Khilafah is growing day by day and the day is not far when the radiant sun of Khilafah will arise and will shine upon the whole world. Today's rallies have played an important role in giving direction to the Ummah's deep rooted desire for real and actual change. The Ummah realizes that real change does not occur with changes in faces alone and there will never be real change until the Capitalist system is uprooted and Khilafah is established in its place. Hizb ut-Tahrir demands from the Pakistan Army that it fulfills its Shari obligation in the dire situation that Pakistan faces and may Allah grant Hizb ut-Tahrir the Nussrah to establish the rightly guided Khilafah.

Note: General Musharraf's Supporters posted a slanderous and abusive attack on Dr. Kaukab Siddique on their web site. This attack has taken up by his Zionist opponents.

General Musharraf Exposed by Hizb-ut-Tahrir: USA's Paki General

Last month a rally was held in England to expose General Musharraf. Here is the statement of Taji Mustafa, media rep of Hizb-ut-Tahrir:

"The purpose of our demonstration against Musharraf is clear: to expose a man who is no less a slave of America than Zardari who he seeks to replace. He is the man who sold Dr Aafia Siddiqui to the USA; the man who supported America's war against the Muslims of Afghanistan; the man who did America's bidding in Waziristan and the Lal Masjid; the man who fuelled bitter divisions within Pakistan; the man who allowed US security forces - the FBI, CIA, Blackwater-Xe and others - into Pakistan."
"Unsurprisingly, Musharraf is being paraded to Birmingham's Muslims by Khalid Mahmood MP who supported the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and draconian anti-terror laws."

"For the last two years, Musharraf has lived a millionaire lifestyle in London, frequenting the luxurious restaurants and hotels, something unaffordable to most generals on a pension. Yet people are expected to think that he is somehow less corrupt than Zardari or Nawaz Sharif." "Pakistan does not need the same old recycled corrupt slaves of America and Britain - democrats and dictators alike - exploiting the people, neglecting their needs and oppressing them."


British General Says NATO Cannot defeat Al-Qaida Islamic Resistance
No Hope of Western Victory for Next 30 Years.

From the Sunday Telegraph
November 7, 2010

"The West can only contain not defeat militant groups such as al-Qaeda, the head of the UK's armed forces has said. General Sir David Richards, a former Nato commander in Afghanistan, said Islamist militancy would pose a threat to the UK for at least 30 years. But he told the Sunday Telegraph newspaper a clear-cut victory over militants was not achievable. The BBC's Frank Gardner said the comments reflect a "new realism" in UK and US counter-terrorism circles.Our security correspondent said such an admission five years ago might have been considered outrageous and defeatist.

Gen Richards, 58, took over as chief of the defence staff last month, after a spell as head of the British army. Britain has lost 343 soldiers in Afghanistan since 2001 but Gen Richards said their sacrifice had been worth it."


65 NATO troops killed in October, 28 in November so far:
15 Taliban Killed

Latest: November 14: Taliban Islamic fighters attacked a NATO fuel convoy after it had entered the country from Pakistan and was in the Behsud area of Nangarhar province. After the guards escaped, the Taliban torched 12 of the tankers. (The BBC showed the tankers in flames.)

Chopper shot down. The same day, Taliban shot down a US helicopter in Kunar province.

The US admitted that 65 NATO troops were killed in October and 28 in the first two weeks of November and has claimed 15 Taliban killed. The US gives no details of the fighting and in some cases refuses to identify the nationalities of the troops killed. In one attack, the Taliban killed General Kelly's son, a junior officer.

NPR gave an eyewitness account in which a martyrdom operator killed two U.S. troops and wounded 3. The soldiers were terrified because they sensed the villagers were against them. The troops had been told that they were fighting FOR the Afghan people! (Believe it or not.) (National Public Radio, Nov. 11)

Iranian Game:

Karzai, installed by the US, guarded by US contractors, admitted that he has been receiving $2 million every year from Iran in CASH. Also, the Iranian consulate has been set up in Herat almost next door to the US consulate though the city is under US-Karzai military control. Shi'ite students are being educated in schools set up by Iran. (Source: Los Angeles Times, November 13.)
