From the Ameer of Jamaat al-Muslimeen.
Our message: Jamaat al-Muslimeen urges Muslims to use
non-violent resistance against Zionism, imperialism, racism
and exploitation of women.
Boycott of pro-Israel businesses is the most effective
non-violent tool. Become politically aware without becoming
part of the power structure.
Protest, demonstrate, write, email, speak out against
oppression. Do not break the law. Remember, with the Qur'an
and Hadith as educational resources, we can win.
"Do not be angry." [Hadith.] Do not use abusive language.
Remember the Prophet, pbuh, in Makka. He did not fight
physically, but he did not compromise with the oppressors.
Teach our children: We want peace but peace does not mean
that we accept aggression and remain silent about Zionism.
Evil must be resisted by creative means.
An Invitation to think.
Spotlights from Imam Badi Ali,
National Islamic Shoora, North Carolina
Spotlight #1: Justice is not possible without hard work and
sacrifices of our abilities and time.
Spotlight #2: Peace is essential but there can be no peace
Spotlight #3: When we read stories of the messengers of
Allah in the Qur'an and the Hadith, stop and think. If we
don't implement them in our lives, they are just words.
Spotlight #4: The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt looks like any
opportunistic, secular movement. There is no difference
between MB and other poltical groupings linked to the
Spotlight #5: Do you have a PLAN B for success, in case one
fails, do you have objectives and projects?
Spotlight # 6: Jordan under a pleasure loving king was
created by western powers. It is not an independent country.
Which other British creations are we missing?
[We must acknowledge the wisdom of Imam Badi Ali: The US has
just decided to OFFICIALLY recognize the Muslim Brotherhood.
The links with imperial powers are quite old. CAIR and ISNA
in USA are Americanized versions of MB. The so called Ikhwan
dumped the teachings of Al-Banna and Syed Qutb and were very
friendly with Hosni Mubarak but he only used them, lettting
them win some seats, and then stopped them. Their leaders
are quite shallow and westernized.- Editor
Mass Distribution of Jamaat Literature at Baltimore's
On July 1, 2011 after Juma' prayers, Jamaat al-Muslimeen's
literature was given to Muslims at Masjid Rahma [Islamic
Society of Baltimore] on the west side of the city. Most of
the people were from Pakistan, India and Bangladesh with
good numbers from Arab countries.
The literature, given to 200 people, included Imam Badi
Ali's "Spotlights" urging Muslims to re-think their pursuit
of money and dunya. A brief report on David Irving's
imprisonment in Austria owing to his views on the Jewish
holocaust story was included. The literature included
glimpses of Dr. Kaukab Siddique's visit to Pakistan as well
as his speeches in Greensboro and Augusta, Georgia. Finally
there were news about the wars in Yemen, Afghanistan and

Obama Admin Warns of "Fines and Incarceration" if U.S.
Citizens Set Sail with Gaza Aid Flotilla.
A group of U.S. citizens is rejecting the Obama
administration's attempt to thwart their aid mission to the
Gaza Strip, which threatens to leave them stranded in
Greece. They are set to sail from a Greek port on a
U.S.-flagged ship called "The Audacity of Hope," part of an
international humanitarian flotilla carrying aid for Gaza's
1.5 million Palestinian residents. Flotilla members are
taking part despite Israeli threats to intercept their
ships. Nine people were killed in an Israeli attack on the
first aid flotilla just over a year ago. The Audacity of
Hope passengers have called for the U.S. government's help
in ensuring their safe passage. But instead, the Obama
administration has told them not to set sail and even warned
them they could face punishment back home.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton suggested Israel would
have the right to use force to prevent the ship's passage.
The State Department called the flotilla "irresponsible and
provocative" and warned that U.S. delegates could face
"fines and incarceration." We play an excerpt from a press
conference when State Department spokesperson Victoria
Nuland is repeatedly questioned about the Obama
administration's threat, but refuses to answer whether the
U.S. considers the Israeli blockade of Gaza to be legal.

Question: ISNA is holding its convention as usual in the
Chicago area where a Zionist Jew [hard core] Rahm Emmanuel
has been elected mayor. Does ISNA oppose Rahm?
Q. Does ISNA oppose the claim that Israel is a legitimate
Q. What does Islam say about Israel?
A. Any power which drives Muslims out of their homeland is
illegitimate. In fact Islam orders Muslims to drive out the
occupiers. US Muslims could use peaceful means for this
Q. Did ISNA oppose the genocidal Israeli assault on
Q. Is it true that AFTER the assault ended ISNA affiliates
cashed in on Muslim trauma by collecting funds for Gaza?
A. As far as we know, yes. Cashing in like that is typical
Q. Which organs of the US power structure does ISNA ally
A. The White House, the Pentagon, the FBI, the

Q. Does ISNA condemn the bombing of Pakistani civilians by
Q. Does ISNA condemn the bombing and occupation of
Afghanistan and Iraq?
Q. Does ISNA oppose Zionism and US Jewish support for
Q. Does ISNA oppose the railroading and persecution of US
Muslim political prisoners?
Q. Are you saying NONE?
A. That's right!
Q. The holocaust story is one of the biggest fund raisers
for Israel and International Jewry. Does ISNA oppose or
question the holocaust story?
A. No. In fact ISNA associate CAIR condemned Iran's
president for asking for a discussion of both sides of the
Q. Is there a specific example of any top leader of ISNA
working very closely with Jews who support the holocaust
story and Israel?
A. ISNA's president Hag Majid, who claims to be an imam,
visited Auschwitz under the auspices of the State
Department. He is also a regular visitor to synagogues which
support Israel. Another lackey named Syed Syeed is also
closely linked to Zionist Rabbis.
Q. ISNA supported the assassination of Osama. Has ISNA EVER
opposed a White House proclamation or propaganda piece?
Q. ISNA supports Obama though Obama is silent about the
genocide in Gaza. But if it supports Obama, it must have
A. ISNA not only supported Bush but fooled Muslims into
delivering a bloc vote for Bush.
Q. What about Clinton?
A. ISNA not only supported Clinton but ISNA's ally CAIR
participated in a White House iftar when Iraq was starving
under US imposed sanctions.
Q. How do you explain the Islamic appearance of ISNA
officials? The men have beards, the women have hijab, and
they pray a lot.
A. Conventional religion supports such behavior. Islam is
not a conventional religion. It REQUIRES the rejection of
false gods BEFORE the affirmation of the ONE God, Allah.
Remember that the Saudi rulers and Karzai of Kabul also have
beards. Their women are in purdah. Allah wants loyalty, not
Q. The homosexual movement has gained recognition from the
Obama administration. Does ISNA condemn homosexuality as
both the Qur'an and the Bible do?
A. ISNA dare not oppose Obama in any way.
Q. Is ISNA a threat to Islam in America?
A. No! Islam is spreading under Allah's laws of
Q. Then why bother about ISNA?
A. It's a tool of the US government and hence its
infiltration into upper class Muslim communities creates the
impression that Islam is a religion of bootlickers and
exploiters. Islam would spread much faster if new Muslims
understood that ISNA is a perverted group which has ignored
the Sunnah even in basic issues such as moon sighting for

Bradley Smith, Founder of Committee for Open Debate on the
Holocaust, reminds President Obama of UDHR.
There is a story to be told that the most powerful elites in
Europe and North America do not want you to hear about, do
not want you to follow, do not want you to consider in
public through a free exchange of ideas. From the Abraham
Foxmans and their hundred-million-dollar budgets on up the
elitist ladder through the U.S. Congress to the swarm that
surrounds President Obama:
"To this day, there are those who insist that the Holocaust
never happened — a denial of fact and truth that is baseless

reminder of our duty to confront those who would tell lies
about our history.'"

masses and student press nation-wide, pointing out how the
routine betrayal of the ideal of Article 19 of the Universal

Holocaust fraud and falsehood from being addressed, thus

morally justify, among other things, the U.S. alliance with
Israel against the Palestinians and other Muslims in the
None of this is difficult to do, or complicated, we have
only to be willing to do it. We are willing. But it does

Is USA a Democracy?
The War on Islam: Unusual Insights in Two books
Must read for this summer of 2011:
(1) A World Without Islam by Graham E. Fuller
Published by Little, Brown and Company ( August 2010)
The title appears at first glance to be anti-Islam but it is
not anti-Islam or anti-Muslim.
The book is well-researched and consists of historical facts
and analysis that offers insights and strategies into
current western politics --- that could be valuable gems to
(2) Area 51 -- an unusual history.... by Annie Jacobsen ( a
Area 51 is a highly classified place in Nevada, U.S.A. that
is a base for many experiments being conducted by the army
and C.I.A, etc. including manufacturing of drones such as
the one that was used to kill Osama Bin Laden, the 1957
test of "dirty bomb" and the controversial last seven pages
of the book that deal with the "wicked science" -- a "rogue
program" of human engineering. The activities of Area 51 are
so highly classified that their activities are not made
available to Presidents of the United States, more recently
to Clinton and Obama.
One attempt at googling "annie jacobsen and her book" got me
to an interview of author on MSNBC where author mentions her
publisher as Little, Brown and Company.
The comments of viewers are at two extreme some debunking
the book and author and others willing to acknowledge its
authenticity to some extent.
My response is: Even if one were to take stuff in her book
with a ton of salt, yet if the following statements/facts
are true that
(A) Area 51 exists in Nevada USA and is the size of
(B) That recent US Presidents are aware of this site
(managed by CIA and the US military top brass) and that
experiments and projects are conducted on site that the
activities of Area 51 are not made available to even the
President of the USA.
(C) That decisions are made by those in control and not by
elected US Presidents---
---then in my opinion, it would be a valid argument to state that the USA functions as a Federation of States regarding internal matters. But that IF at the national political decisions regarding international affairs such as declaring wars against any nation world-wide are not made by those elected by US citizens such as the President and other elected officials, THEN it would be a valid argument to make that the United States is not a Democracy and the elected President is not "the most powerful man in the world" but a mere symbol and the power of the Presidency is a mere myth.
(D) Whenever and wherever citizens are afraid of all those
in the country who have been given control of guns, war
weaponry, and the control of decision making on how and when
and where to use them, and are also allowed to keep their
decisions beyond the knowledge and awareness of citizens,
then one can claim-- as a citizen of the United States---
that this nation is not functioning as a democratic
society/nation. Not only that, the entire world's
population is in grave danger from a nation such as the
United States with "fire-power" and a total lack of
"Conscience" that could wipe the planet into non-existence
with the click on a computer. No exaggeration! There are
many "dummies" and "gung-ho" / trigger-happy patriots in
this "land of the free and the home of the brave"!
The questions that come to mind are: (1) Is the USA a
democracy? The Presidency of the USA is a symbol and a
myth. The real power players are beyond political elections
and US citizens' knowledge, awareness and control. Viva
The contents of these two books may help Muslims around the
globe realize how far off the mark they are in their
political analyses of western power structures.
"Justice" for Muslims in America
Three African American Muslims Sentenced to 25 Years in
Prison: Tricked/trapped by Informant
[Report below written by Br. Mauri Saalakhan.]
Assalaamu Alaikum (Greetings of Peace):
It is now just after midnight and I'm about to depart New
York after spending the day in the "Big Apple." I came
because three of the brothers embroiled in the Newburgh 4
case - James Cromitie, 45, David Williams, 30, and Onta
Williams, 35 (no relation) - were sentenced today; the
outcome of the proceeding was tragically predictable. (Later
in the evening I spoke at one of the centers in New York, to
a very receptive audience, alhamdullilah.)
U.S. District Judge Colleen McMahon, who justifiably
criticized the government for manufacturing a terrorism
case, gave the defendants what some considered a break - 25
years each (the government was asking for life sentences,
and the government usually gets what it asks for in cases of
this nature). As a result of giving the young men a break
within acceptable limits of the law, as the law is presently
constructed, the punishment still ended up being a grotesque
mockery of the (theoretically at least) equalizing and
civilizing principle called "justice."
Once again, in yet another preemptive prosecution case that
targeted naive and foolish you Muslim men, at the
manipulative hand of a government paid agent-provocateur,
the punishment did not fit the crime!
I am convinced that if a genuine march toward justice is to
begin within the U.S. Judiciary, it will come at the hands
of jurists who are courageous enough to make a decision that
they expect to be overturned. Such a jurist must be so
justice-oriented that they are willing to anticipate the
probability that their decision will be overturned; embrace
that probability; indeed, invite that probability! Then, and
only then, will a real march toward justice begin in the
courts of the land.
May that day come soon!

Egypt Entering New Stage of its Revolution:
1036 injured by Security Forces: June 28-29
Excerpted from Al Jazeerah
Clashes between Egyptian security forces and more than 5,000
protesters in Cairo's Tahrir Square have left more than
1,036 people injured, according to witnesses and medical
Tahrir Square, the epicentre of protests that toppled Hosni
Mubarak, Egypt's former president, was sealed off early on
Wednesday as lines of security forces in riot gear strived
to regain control from demonstrators. Witnesses said the
clashes started on Tuesday when police tried to clear a
sit-in at the state-TV building, which included families of
those killed during the country's revolution earlier this
year, known as the "martyrs", according to the Daily News,
an Egyptian news website.
Witnesses said police attacked the families outside the
Balloon Theatre in Agouza, where a planned memorial service
for them was taking place. The interior ministry said in a
statement on Tuesday that "people who claimed to be families
of martyrs, tried to break into the theatre" in which the
service was held.
The Egyptian cabinet on Wednesday announced on its Facebook
page that nine people had been arrested and will face
questioning from military prosecutors. Later in the day, the
newspaper al-Masri al-Youm reported that 44 people had been
taken away for questioning, with Reuters reporting that an
American and Briton were among them.
Ayman Mohyeldin, Al Jazeera's correspondent in Cairo,
reported: "The original dispute happened between families of
the martyrs of the revolution as they were trying to attend
an event [and were denied access]. "At that point there were
clashes between police and some of those family members that
ultimately spilled over to other parts of the city. "The
protest gained momentum and made its way into Tahrir Square,
and ultimately to the interior ministry," he said.
Rocks and shattered glass littered the streets around
Tahrir, as protesters chanted: "Down with the military
junta." As protests at the ministry died down, the army
replaced riot police in guarding the building. According to
the Egyptian health ministry, 1,036 people had been hurt in
the clashes, with 40 members of the security forces among
them. Egyptian Prime Minister Essam Sharaf has said that he
ordered the police to withdraw from Tahrir Square to reduce
Nigeria: Islam vs Military tyranny

Now Comes the Boko Haram couterattack: Strikes in Abuja,
Who would have thought that Boko Haram would make a
comeback. It's a literalist Islamic movement which wants
Shar'ia and calls for end to all western influences. The
Nigerian army, backed by the US and Israel, slaughtered
these innocent and largely unarmed Muslims by the hundreds.
Army tanks smashed their mosques. Their pious leader Yusuf
was captured and then executed without trial along with
hundreds of other Muslims.
Now everyone is surprised.
On June 16, 2011, Boko Haram struck the police headquarters
in Abuja, the capital of Nigeria. Reports say, the attacker
was Nigeria's first martyrdom operator. The entire car park
of police vehicles was set ablaze , 37 vehicles destroyed
and 40 damaged, seven policemen killed. [This happened the
day after the police chief visited Maiduguri, the northern
city where Yusuf started the movement, and boasted that he
would wipe out Boko Haram.]
On June 20, Boko Haram raiders hit a police station and a
bank in Katsina state, a vast distance from Maiduguri. At
least 5 policemen and 2 officials were killed.
On June 25, the target was a beer garden in Maiduguri
itself. The bombing killed 25 and wounded 30. The government

First US Drone Strike in Somalia: Previous Air Attacks were
[From an article in the Washington Post by Greg Jaffe and
Karen DeYoung, ]
Published: June 29.
A U.S. drone aircraft fired on two leaders of a militant
Somali organization tied to al-Qaeda, apparently wounding
them, a senior U.S. military official familiar with the
operation said Wednesday.
The strike last week against senior members of al-Shabab
comes amid growing concern within the U.S. government that
some leaders of the Islamist group are collaborating more
closely with al-Qaeda to strike targets beyond Somalia, the
military official said. The airstrike makes Somalia at least
the sixth country where the United States is using drone
aircraft to conduct lethal attacks, joining Afghanistan,
Pakistan, Libya, Iraq and Yemen. And it comes as the CIA is
expected to begin flying armed drones over Yemen in its hunt
for al-Qaeda operatives
. Al-Shabab has battled Somalia's tenuous government for
several years. In recent months, U.S. officials have picked
up intelligence that senior members of the group have
expanded their ambitions beyond attacks in Somalia. "They
have become somewhat emboldened of late, and, as a result,
we have become more focused on inhibiting their activities,"
the official said."They were planning operations outside of
Both of the al-Shabab leaders targeted in the attack had
"direct ties" to American-born cleric Anwar al-Aulaqi, the
military official said. Aulaqi escaped a U.S. drone strike
in Yemen in May. The White House declined Wednesday night to
respond to questions about the attack. But Obama
administration officials have made repeated references to
al-Shabab in recent weeks, indicating that the group has
expanded its aims and its operations.
In a speech Wednesday unveiling the administration's new
counterterrorism strategy, senior White House aide John O.
Brennan included Somalia among the countries where the
administration has placed a new focus on al-Qaeda
affiliates. "As the al-Qaeda core has weakened under our
unyielding pressure, it has looked increasingly to these
other groups and individuals to take up its cause, including
its goal of striking the United States," said Brennan,
Obama's chief counterterrorism adviser. "From the territory
it controls in Somalia," he said, "al-Shabab continues to
call for strikes against the United States."
And earlier this month, in a hearing to confirm him as
Obama's new defense secretary, CIA Director Leon Panetta
told senators that the agency had intelligence on al-Shabab
"that indicates that they, too, are looking at targets
beyond Somalia." Panetta said al-Qaeda had moved some of its
operations to "nodes" in Yemen, Somalia and North Africa.
The CIA, he said, was working with the U.S. Joint Special
Operations Command in those areas "to try to develop
The Special Operations Command carried out last week's
Somalia strike, the military official said, and it has been
flying remotely piloted planes over Yemen for much of the
past year. It has taken the lead in operations in Yemen,
where Aulaqi, a senior figure in al-Qaeda in the Arabian
Peninsula, is based. U.S. aircraft and Special Operations
commandos have carried out other attacks in Somalia against
militants linked to al-Qaeda, but the strike last week
appears to have been one of the first U.S. drone attacks in
Teachings from Authentic Hadith
Prophet Muhammad's [pbuh] Ascension:
Night Journey to Jerusalem and to the Seven Heavens: The
Holy city under Israeli -Jewish Occupation
By Kaukab Siddique
The Muslim world is celebrating the Night Journey of
Muhammad, the last messenger and prophet of Allah, pbuh.
The Qur'an emphasizes the great significance of the Night
Journey [Isra'] and the Ascension [mairaj] of Muhammad,
pbuh. The aHadith, particularly the Sahih of Bukhari, give
details of this great event. Just about all the scholars of
Islam have commented on these texts. Allama Iqbal, the
visionary Poet of the East, looked at the levels of meaning
in the Hadith. Here is a summary of main points made by
Iqbal and other famous scholars:
Conclusion: Muslims must try to understand the message of
Muhammad, p. If you have faith in Allah, nothing can defeat
you. In the bleakest of situations, Allah transported
Muhammad, p, beyond time and space so that he would not
waver in his mission. At this time the Zionist-Jewish
terrorist entity known as "Israel" is in blatant occupation
of Palestine, of Jerusalem, of masjid al-Aqsa.
Allah [God] took Muhammad, pbuh, beyond time and space to
the realm of Light, Undertanding and Acceptance.
This amazing event took place at a time when Muhammad, p,
was at the lowest level of his worldly situation and it
seemed to his oppressors that they had defeated his cause.
Thus when the Night is at its darkest, Light emerges.
Muhammad, p, was carried to the al-Aqsa masjid in
Jerusalem by a creature made of light identified as
"burraq." It seems to have travelled at the speed of light.
The aHadith teach us that the human being can reach beyond
all weaknesses and difficulties till the Will of Allah and
the potential of the human merge. Thus Allah has given the
human a potential which is limited only by his lack of
desire to be excellent.
Muhammad, p, is the "brother" and leader of all the
messengers who came before him. Thus the Truth from the
Creator, Allah, sent to all nations, is ONE and
Allah [God] has blessed the human so much, that to thank
Allah, the human would have to do nothing but worship Allah
[seen as 50 prayers a day in the Hadith]. However, Allah is
Merciful and lets the human pray only 5 times a day. [The
formal 5 prayers are suggested to Mushammad, p, by Moses,p,
whom he meets in the Ascension. Moses, p, is seen in Islam
as the messenger who emphasized formality and Law.]
Social evils, like adultery, and capitalistic corruption,
like loans on interest, riba, are strongly targeted in the
visions Muhammad, p. saw. [The Hadith literature on these
matters was plagiarized later by the famous Italian poet
Muhammad, p, began his night journey from the home of a
woman, Umm Hani, r.a., who supported his cause. When he
returned, the door chain of her home was still moving as it
had been when he left, as if he had been gone for only a
The oppressors derided Muhammad, p, when he talked of his
Night Journey. They, used to human limitations, totally
misunderstood what he was saying. One who did understand,
who affirmed the truth and stood by Muhammad, p, was Abu
Bakr, r. Thus the leadership of Islam for the future was
assured. Abu Bakr, r.a., is known in Islam as Siddiq, one
who stands by the Truth

A hearing to confront repression of human rights and civil
liberties by the criminal justice system
The panel presentation will focus on how the 'War on Terror'
climate and its repressive legal practices in the criminal
justice system have affected civil liberties and human
rights of Arab, Muslim, African American, South Asian,
Latino, and all immigrant communities and the broader social
justice movement. Representatives from the National

and Committee to Stop FBI Repression-MI will be having a
panel discussion about their political, social and legal
campaigns around these very important issues to address how
we can counter and change oppressive policies. Included in
the panels are families who will share personal stories of
struggles for justice. The goal of the program is to shed
light on the conditions of families and communities
suffering under the war on terror, establish alliances
