Verse of the Week
"When the angels said: O Mariam, surely Allah gives you good
news with a Word from Him (of one) whose name is the
Messiah, Isa son of Mariam, worthy of regard in this world
and the hereafter and those who are made near (to Allah).
And he shall speak to the people when in the cradle and when
of old age, and (he shall be) one of the good ones. She
said: My Lord! how shall there be a son (born) to me, and
man has not touched me? He said: Even so, Allah creates what
He pleases; when He has decreed a matter, He only says to
it, Be, and it is.".

Canada is in full Zionist control and does not consider any
justice for Islamic opponents. Muslims must challenge the
evil ways of Ottawa by peaceful means.

Boycott Businesses which Support Israel: Latest Effort in
Young people are being fooled by Israel. This is !
December 24: Jamaat al-Muslimeen's latest letter to the
Muslims, issued by the Boycott group was given selectively
to 75 worshippers after Juma' [Friday] prayers.
A new addition to the boycott list is Delta Galil, Israel's
biggest textile company. Guess the guise under which its
products are offered to America's young people: Gap, Calvin
Klein, Playtex and Victoria's Secret.
Looks like millions of young Americans don't know that the
clothes they love are from a terrorist entity.
Latest Radio Interview
Zionism: White Supremacy in Israeli Guise:
Censorship & Abuse against Muslim Professor
December 21, 2010: Voices with Vision, a weekly broadcast
heard on Washington, DC's WPFW radio (89.3 FM) interviewed
Dr. Kaukab Siddique live. Ms. Ryme Katkhouda and Naji
Mujahid asked Dr. Siddique about his ongoing confrontation
with America's Zionist and extreme right wing groups. Ms.
Katkhouda is the program producer, while Mujahid is known
for his grassroots activism in support of African and
African American causes. In addition to Israel, Dr. Siddique
was asked about his understanding of the Jewish holocaust
The following points summarize Dr. Siddique's responses:
My concern is that Israel is carrying out daily
violations of human rights in Palestine, a land which
international Jewry has occupied by force of arms.
In America, there should be a massive uprising,
by peaceful means, to dismantle this terrorist entity.
Boycott is a tool of non-violent resistance which works.
What Israel has done in Gaza and all over
Palestine as well as in Lebanon delegitimizes Israel. It is
a terrorist entity rooted in genocide and crimes against
humanity which are ongoing.
Zionists in America know that they cannot face me
in discussion of the issues of war and peace. So they use
censorship to stop me from getting a fair hearing in
corporate media which they control and manipulate.
They couldn't scare me with death threats and
smear campaigns, (I am a Muslim!), so they rallied the
congress and senate of Pennsylvania to attack my livelihood
in Lincoln University.
They know that Israel cannot stand up to scrutiny
by the American people, so they dug up various excerpts from
20 years of my writings to accuse me of being "anti-semitic"
and a "holocaust denier."
As a Muslim, I am not permitted by my religion to
hate anyone on the basis of race or religion. I oppose
oppression, exploitation, occupation, tyranny and torture. I
have written more against the wrong doing of Muslims than of
World War II ended in 1945. Germany paid
billions of dollars in reparations to Israel for FOUR YEARS
of suffering of the Jews under Hitler.
By contrast, FOUR HUNDRED YEARS of SLAVERY, are
of direct concern to me and should be to all who teach at a
famous historically Black college like Lincoln University.
NO REPARATIONS have been paid for those 400 years. What
happened to 40 Acres and a Mule?
It is utterly shameless and morally low for the
Jews to accuse me of anti-semitism when they know that my
life has been devoted to anti-racism and oppression. Muslims
throughout history helped the Jews, in particular during the
As for the holocaust story, I have no doubt that
the Jews suffered tremendously during the World War.
However, I also know that the Poles, the Russians, the
French and the Dutch too suffered a great deal. The Germans
are human beings. How can we ignore the fire bombing of
German cities, the destruction of German churches,
monasteries, libraries and schools at the hands of the
British and the Americans.
Hundreds of thousands of German children were
BURNED ALIVE by the western powers in senseless 1000-bomber
attacks on defenseless German cities during late 1944 till
May 1945. My humanity is revolted by these massive crimes
committed by the victors. Then think of Hiroshima and
The Jewish holocaust story is not a hoax but it
has been subjected to scholarly analysis on a big scale by
Mark Weber, David Irving, Germar Rudolf and many others.
Their documentation is impeccable. I ask that let both sides
be heard. Many of the holocaust stories were undoubtedly
fabricated and the total holocaust story should thereby be
subjected to revision.
Today ALL of Gaza is a concentration camp run by
Jewish Zionists. Look at the Israeli leadership. They are
White Supremacists. They treat the Palestinians accordingly.
Look at the elite Zionist leadership in America. They too
are White and Supremacists. They need to look at themselves
in a mirror before they dare accuse me of racism.

Inshallah all is well with you. I pray that this letter
finds you in the highest states of eman and trust in Allah.
May Allah strengthen you and protect you in your effort in

University & Dr. Siddique: Zionist-Racist Hate Speech
Whose Hate Speech?
By Nadrat Siddique
Recently, my father, Dr. Kaukab Siddique, came under assault
by the Zionists, after he gave a speech calling for the
peaceful dismantling of Israel at the annual Quds Day rally
in Washington, DC. The Zionist campaign reminded me of
similar assaults on Dr. Tony Martin, Prof. Ward Churchill,
Dr. Mazin Qumsiyeh, Prof. Francis Boyle, Prof. Norm
Finkelstein and many others. The primary distinction was
that unlike the others, my father is a Muslim and a Semite.
This makes him even more a thorn in the side of the
Zionists, who view him as one of those they would prefer to
beat to a pulp with the butt of their Tavors (Israeli
assault rifles), or torture in Israeli prison, but not
In other words, to be a Muslim and outspoken against Israel
magnifies the Thought Crime. One analogy which comes to
mind: During slavery, the white power structure exhibited a
degree of tolerance for the white abolitionists who quietly
and theoretically challenged slavery. The same power
structure screamed for a manhunt followed by public hanging
for a Denmark Vesey calling for a slave rebellion. Hence the
obscene response to my father's speech by the Zionists.
My father did not advocate violence. He did not violate the
law. He merely challenged prevailing paradigms, which say it
is okay to allocate $2.55 billion dollars each year (one
million dollars per day in military aid alone) of U.S.
taxpayer money to a colonial settler state which oppresses
its original inhabits. A firm believer in Freedom of Speech,
he spoke out on his time, at his own expense, about an issue
he felt strongly about.
This was not the first time my father has been in the
Zionist crosshairs, as the ADL, AJC, JDL, and the Wiesenthal
Center scrutinizing his writings, placed him on their
McCarthy-style blacklist, and attempted to have him removed
from his position at Lincoln in 2006.
This time, however, they appeared far more determined,
launching their supporters to write letters to LU President
Ivory Nelson, suggesting my father's classes be monitored,
and questioning the process that led to his tenure--all with
the implication that he should be removed. In a campaign of
harassment and intimidation, they and their supporters sent
hate-filled emails and letters (including threats of
violence and even death) to him. They galvanized a dozen
state senators to visit the university. The threat of firing
alone would have been enough to convince many academics,
particularly immigrants, to abdicate their heartfelt
political stance. In such a climate, how could one possibly
claim that free speech is extant?
My father, who believes that Authority belongs to Allah
alone, did not succumb to the Zionist pressure. It made me
intensely proud to have him as a father.
He draws a salary from Lincoln University, which, while not
a state school, receives partial funding from the state of
Pennsylvania. In an action reminiscent of mafia-style
blackmail of the historically black college, a group of
state senators visited my Dad's boss at the behest of the
Zionist lobby. They were concerned, they told the LU
President, about state funds going (indirectly) to the
salary of an individual engaging in what they claimed was
hate speech. In other words, fire this professor who dares
speak out of line with the Zionist lobby, otherwise we'll
yank your funds.
The issue that arises from all this is the allocation of
To call for the peaceful dismantling of a colonial-settler
state on par with Apartheid South Africa, Rhodesia,
French-occupied Algeria, or British-occupied Kenya is hate
But saying, "that there's not enough troops in the Army to
force the Southern people to break down segregation and
admit the nigger race into our theatres, into our swimming
pools, into our homes and into our churches," (Strom
Thurmond, then presidential nominee for the States' Rights
Party) is not hate speech.
Saying that poor blacks fail to acquire wealth partly
because of their "habits;" that bilingual education teaches
"the language of living in a ghetto;" that building an
Islamic center near Ground Zero is like Nazis erecting a
sign near the Holocaust Museum; or that Obama is engaged in
"Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior" (Newt Gingrich)--all these
are not hate speech.
Praising Strom Thurmond, an overtly racist politician, and
saying the country would have been better off if they'd
followed his agenda (i.e. of racial segregation, and hence
complete exclusion of Black people from the mainstream)
(Trent Lott) is not hate speech.
Telling a 15-year old black teen "You don't f---ing belong
here. Get out of here," while beating him in the head with a
radio (Eliyahu Eliezer Werdesheim, Shomrin Jewish patrol in
Baltimore) is not hate speech.
Assessing the deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children as "worth it"
(Madeleine Albright) is not hate speech.
Saying that all Taliban should be annihilated (many U.S.
politicians), neverminding that a vast majority of Afghan
Pashtoons support the Taliban as the only force effectively
opposing the U.S. occupation of their country, and that
Pashtoons make up the vast majority of the Afghan
population, hence equivalent to saying tens of thousands of
people should be annihilated--that is not hate speech.
Joking about an assassination attempt on (then Senator)
Obama (Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee)--as long as one quickly
apologizes--is not hate speech.
Calling for the assassination of U.S. citizen and cleric
Anwar Awlaki, because he opposes the U.S. military presence
in the Middle East and Africa (Obama administration)--is not
Calling for the assassination of Julian Assange because he
exposed the hate speech of various and sundry U.S. statesmen
and their toadies (Tom Flanagan, former aid to the Canadian
Prime Minister)--is not hate speech.
The cases of hate speech against Muslims, people of color,
and anyone who stands up for us, are too numerous to
mention. The small subset I mentioned are those who were on
U.S. federal or state government payroll (or in the case of
Tom Flanagan, teaching at a public Canadian university, on
Canadian government payroll) at the time they made their
hate-filled comments. It is okay for them to launch hateful,
threatening, demeaning diatribes against people of color and
Muslims while sopping up your and my tax dollars.
The Doublespeak dictionary says that hate speech is only
hate speech if it is directed against certain select
populations, and not others.
Postscript: Want to see hate speech? Look at the youtube
comments, following the posts of the video of my father's
Al-Quds Day speech (link is below). Writer after
writer--primarily racist Zionists, hurl obscenities and
death threats at him—all for calling for the peaceful
dismantling of Israel, in effect, an entirely new look at a
failed U.S. foreign policy. It is something U.S. policy
makers, if they care about their constituents more than they
care about the European settlers in Israel, ought, in a time
of economic depression, to be considering anyway.

Richard Holbrooke - Unlawful and Immoral Diplomacy
By Vahid Sendijarevic, Ph.D.
National Congress of the Republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina
"I never met anyone more tenaciously committed to delivering
on results and
negotiating and doing whatever had to be done to achieve
positive outcomes. And
sometimes, people get lost in the methods and means, and
thinking that has to be
very moral and right. And Richard didn't get lost there."
These are words of Mr.
Steve Clemons about legacy of Mr. Holbrook spoken hours
after his death. Mr.
Steve Clemons, author of the political blog, "The Washington
introduced as a friend of Mr. Holbrook by Rachel Maddow in
her show on MSNBC on
December 13, 2010.
What Mr. Clemons said in very polite manner is that Mr.
Holbrook would use any
mean necessary, regardless how immoral and unlawful, to
achieve his diplomatic
Dayton Peace Accord brokered by Mr. Holbrook was sold to the
public by President
Clinton as one of the highest achievement of American
diplomacy. However, in
reality Mr. Holbrook's diplomatic negotiations instigated
the genocide in Bosnia
which led to the Dayton Peace Accord imposed on Bosnian
people. The Dayton Peace
Accord represents a LEGAL AND POLITICAL PRECEDENT that
constitution of sovereign nations can be changed by foreign
aggression, ethnic cleansing, and genocide.
The claim by President Clinton, Mr. Holbrook, and their
protégés that Dayton
Peace Accord brought peace to people of Bosnia is a plain
lie used to cover up
the immorality and unlawfulness of the negotiation process
that led to Dayton
Peace Accord. The objective of the 1992 aggression by Serbia
Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina was creation of an
ethnically pure "Greater
Serbia". This could be achieved by dismantling the Republic
of Bosnia and
Herzegovina and by ethnic cleansing of non-Serbs from 50% of
to create "Republika Srpska" next to Serbia to be used as
bases for creation of
continuous "Greater Serbia." With the genocide in
Srebrenica in 1995, the
continuous territory was established, and with US backed
diplomatic efforts of
Mr. Holbrook, Serbian objectives in Bosnia were solidified
in the imposed Dayton
According to the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment
for the Crime of
Genocide and the UN Charter, the administration of President
obligated to protect the UN member state, the Republic of
Herzegovina, from aggression and genocide and not to reward
the perpetrators of
aggression and genocide with the territory of the victim
President Clinton and Holbrook can not claim that they did
not know what was
going on in Bosnia from the day one of aggression in 1992.
In legally binding
Resolutions 752 and 757 from 1992, the UN Security Council
sanctions and political isolation to Serbia and Montenegro
as punishment for
their aggression against the Republic of Bosnia and
Herzegovina. In the
provisional measures of the International Court of Justice
on September 13,
1993, in the case of Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina v.
Montenegro, "the Court recorded that, since its Order [to
Serbia and Montenegro]
of April 8, 1993, and despite it and many resolutions of the
Security Council, "great suffering and loss of life has been
sustained by the
population of Bosnia-Herzegovina in circumstances which
shock the conscience of
mankind and flagrantly conflict with moral law ...".
The war crimes that shocked the conscience of mankind and
with moral law moved the American people to do good for
people of Republic of
Bosnia and Herzegovina. The USA congress adapted two times
a resolution to lift
arms embargo on Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina so that
Bosnians can defend
themselves from those horrible crimes. President Clinton
resolutions. The second resolution was adapted by 2/3
majority in both The House
of the Representatives and the Senate. At the hearing at the
Senate after the
second veto by President Clinton, Senator Joe Biden accused
President Clinton and Warren Christopher, a Secretary of
State, for actively
participating in partition of the sovereign nation of
Republic of Bosnia and
Herzegovina and thus participating in war crimes against
Bosnian people. After
passionate exchange of arguments between Mr. Biden and Mr.
were moved behind the closed doors far from the public eyes,
and Mr. Biden
changed his passion for justice and rule of law into new
passion which can be
described as by any mean necessary to achieve diplomatic
goals, regardless how
immoral and unlawful those goals were.
Off course, nobody gave any explanations what were the
benefits to the American
people of President Clinton and Ambassador Holbrook's
decision to go along with
Milosevic's genocidal project. We know well that America
benefits when it
stands for what is right. And, what was right in the case
of Bosnia was to
defend the letters of the Convention on the Prevention and
Punishment for the
Crime of Genocide and not to go along with goals of Mr.
Milosevic, indicted war
criminal for war crimes in Croatia and genocide in Republic
of Bosnia and
Still there is time to correct the wrong done by President
Clinton and his
administration. The International Court of Justice ruled in
the binding judgment
in February 26, 2007 in the case of Bosnia and Herzegovina
v. Serbia and
Montenegro that genocide was committed by the government and
"Republika Srpska" and specifically the Army (VRS) and
Police (MUP) of
"Republika Srpska" and that Serbia had an obligation to
prevent the genocide.
Filing the law suit for genocide in 1993 preceded all
and legal arrangements for Bosnia and Herzegovina. The final
judgment of the
International Court of Justice supersedes all constitutional
are offered today to the victims of aggression and genocide
including Annex 4 to
the Dayton Agreement (the Dayton Constitution).
The U.S.A. should help Bosnian patriots to restore the
institutions of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina as
they were before the
aggression and genocide by applying the legal right to
RESTITUTIO IN INTEGRUM
(restoration of the original condition) based on the
peremptory norms of
International law JUS COGENS, and to declare null and void
Constitution and institutions created under the Dayton
The constitution of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina
is the only legally
binding document on the basis of which the independence of
Herzegovina has been recognized. This constitution ended
communism and provided
for free multiparty elections in Bosnia and Herzegovina in
1990 and provided for
free referendum of its independence in 1992. Under this
of Bosnia and Herzegovina became a UN member nation. This
that each individual is sovereign on entire territory of
Bosnia and Herzegovina
irrelevant on ethnicity or religion.
The lawfulness and justice in the case of Bosnia and
Herzegovina will be
accomplished only after the goal of the aggression and
genocide is denied to the
perpetrators of the aggression and genocide. According to
and domestic laws, anything what was achieved unlawfully can
not be recognized
Under the Dayton Agreement, the unlawful governing power
over the victims of
aggression and genocide in the state of Bosnia and
Herzegovina was put into the
hands of those who committed the genocide and those who were
aggression and the genocide. The U.S. government should
terminate its support
to those in Bosnia who were complicit in the aggression and

U.S.-backed Attempts to Repeal Blasphemy Laws face stiff
Resistance from Islamic Scholars
From Shamsuddin, Lahore
LAHORE, Dec. 24: Jamaat e Ittehadul Ulemaa chief and former
MNA, Maulana Abdul Malik, h said that neither the President
nor the Prime Minister had the authority to amend the
Blasphemy ( of the Holy Prophet) Law and if they dared to do
that, they would not only lose power but would also find it
hard to live in this country.
Addressing the Friday congregation at Mansoora mosque, he
said that Pakistan had been achieved in the name of Islam
and the nation knew how to safeguard its ideological
character. The people from Khyber up to Karachi stood united
as far as the sanctity of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) was
concerned, he added.
He said the rulers desired to undo the Islamic identity of
the country at the bidding of colonial powers which was
tantamount to inviting divine wrath. The rulers had already
mortgaged the country's independence and sovereignty at the
US hands and now they were pursuing the agenda of making the
country a secular state.
However, he said, the government should keep in mind the
nation that had sacrificed the lives of hundreds of
thousands of people for the creation of this country would
not spare any sacrifice to safeguard its Islamic identity.
He said that the countrywide strike planed for December 31
on this issue would be an eye opener for the rulers.

Maulvi Fazlullah Re-Appears: Serious Setback for General
December 3: A video of the legendary Islamic leader of Swat,
Maulvi Fazlullah has appeared on Pakistani Internet groups.
It seems to be a couple of months old and seems to mock
General Kayani's propaganda against the resistance in Swat.
Kayani's propaganda had declared that the Pak Taliban have
been wiped out from Swat and Dir and that Fazlullah had
gangrene in both his legs and would die soon because of lack
of advanced medical technology in the mountains. That was
about a year back. Also General Athar Abbas, Kayani's PR man
suggested that Fazlullah is not an Islamic leader at all but
an Indian agent!
In this current video, Fazlullah seems to mock Kayani. First
he stands with the help of a big stick, suggesting that his
legs might be hurt. Then he moves and one can see an
automatic rifle slung over his shoulder.
He speaks in Pushto but most of what he says is in Arabic
from the Qur'an and Hadith with strong affirmations of
acceptance of the Will of Allah.
Then he drops the stick and handles the rifle. A crowd of
young fighters listens to him intently. After more
quotations from the Qur'an, he moves forward, gun in hand,
and walks down the mountain path with a jaunty walk.
Obviously, the Lion of Swat is alive and well. His black
turban and his heavy beard match the stance of a confident
leader who literally smiles at the moves of General Kayani
and American generals.
