Thoughts about Time
Spotlights from Jamaat al-Muslimeen National Shoora Leader
Imam Badi Ali
Spotlight #1: There are some people who think change means
chaos. Their objective is to create chaos.
Spotlight #2: Many of our leaders did not even think that
there would be chaos. They never had a Plan B.
Spotlight #3: Past, present and future are for us, not for
the Creator who created Time.
Spotlight #4: Do not punish yourself for wasted time. Then
you waste more time. Start now!
Spotlight #5: Present is what you have and own!
Spotlight #6: For every beginning, there is an end.

EVERYTHING. Do what is important. Worship Allah.
Spotlight #8: There are 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes
in sn hour. Use them wisely. Allah created Time. Use it
Spotlight #9: The time you spend in worshipping Allah is
Spotlight #10: Time is a gift, a blessing and a comforter

The Tragedy and the Irony: Iraqi Woman Murdered in El Cajon,
On March 24, Shaima Alawadi, a 32 year old Iraqi woman who
wore hijab. died of the wounds she received on March 21 at
the hands of a suspected White Supremacist. She had been
smashed down with a tire iron. The assailant left a note
saying: "Go back to your country, you terrorist." She had
ignored an earlier threat.
The irony of it is that her husband and her father were
helping US troops to be culturally prepared when they went
with occupation forces into Iraq.
There are 40,000 Iraqis living in El Cajon, a suburb of San
Diego, mostly Christians but some Muslims. Alawadi had
arrived recently from Michigan. [US is carrying out social
engineering by bringing in large numbers of people hostile
to their homelands to settle in the US.]
We have two powerful articles on the murder of Trayvon
Martin in Florida. After 30,000 people demonstrated, even
President Obama made a sweet comment to soothe the people.
Let's see what an African American Muslim activist David
Wiggins says about this kind of opportunism.
Also we have our intellectual friend Dr. Wilmer Leon,
distinguished among thoughtful African Americans, who
analyzes the steady defense of the killer of Trayvon which
the corporate media have been knitting together even while
the shooter has not been arrested.

Our America #3:
Few outsiders know that:
American universities practice the most rigorous censorship
against discussion of the Jewish version of the holocaust
and the emerging documentation of the holocaust of German
cities during World War 2.
Bradley Smith, a man with a wry sense of humor, is
challenging the Zionist octopus in American universities.
His program is called: Committee for Open Debate on the

called on the masses to unite to oppose US, Indian and
Israeli aggression against Islam and Muslims. Pakistanis,
under his leadership, are blocking the supply routes to NATO
forces in Afghanistan.
The entire galaxy of dynamic Jamaate Islami Frontier
leadership was there and spoke to the crowds. Among the
speakers: Prof. Mohammed Ibrahim, ameer of Frontier Jamaat,
Shabbir Ahmed Khan, Sec. general, Syed Bakhtiar maani, ameer
of the Mardan JI and many others. A Muslim League leader
from Upper Dir joined JI.
About 200,000 people. Wow!
In case readers thought that this kind of gathering was only
possible in a frontier town where public anger against US
imperialism is very high, please scroll way down for a look
at Munawar's gathering in the Industrial city of Faisalabad
in Punjab. Our observers say, Jamaate Islami is successfully
mobilizing the masses and USA will face serious difficulties
although both the army and the government have been

Gen. Kayani to President Zardari.
My Obama Moment: If I had a son he would look just
by David Wiggins [Baltimore, Maryland]
[The writer is an outstanding activist in the Maryland-DC
area and wrote this exclusively for New Trend.]
Baltimore--- On Monday March 27 from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. various
organizations will come together in at Baltimore's Inner
Harbor, at McKeldin Square, which was the site of the local
"Occupy Movement" to protest the senseless February 26,
2012, murder of Trayvon Martin, who was killed by a racist
Jewish neighborhood watch patroller George Zimmerman, who
was armed with a gun, who claimed the 17-year old Martin
"looked suspicious," so suspicious that Zimmerman had to
kill him for nothing more than being a young Black male,
walking where some thug determined he didn't belong.
There was an eerily similar occurrence in the Upper Park
Heights area of Baltimore City, where a 15-year old was
beaten by the local Jewish Shomrim patrol, led by a dual
national Israeli IDF Special Forces Reservist, in November
2010, and didn't make the headline in Baltimore until groups
like the Baltimore Black Think Tank, Inc., All People's
Congress, ANSWER , and the Baltimore Chapter of the SCLC
began to hold monthly demonstrations which were not
supported by a majority of the clergy, activist, ACLU or
youth advocates. More than a year later the case has not
gone to trial.
What I find blatantly opportunistic is the statement made by
the War Criminal in Chief, President Barak Obama, that if he
"had a son he would look just like Trayvon Martin." Well,
I'm having an Obama moment to remind all those who are using
this child's tragic death to make themselves appear
sympathetic to the plight of young Black men still
subjugated by racial hatred, and even Jim Crow in Blackface
that this happens very regularly and it is time to protect
I do have sons and they look just like Troy Davis, Sean
Bell, Aaron Campbell, Victor Steen, Steven Eugene
Washington, Oscar Grant, James Craig Anderson, and countless
others who have been murdered for being Black and in the
wrong place at the wrong time. How much longer will Blacks
continue to seek integration with a People who are only 45
years removed from barbecuing us in public places for sport?
Yes, Mr. Obama, I have sons, and they look just like every
other Black man in America: "Suspicious," so suspicious that
still in the 21st century they could be murdered for being
The Murder of Trayvon Martin Highlights Other Issues.
Analysis of the Shooter's Defense being put up by the
By Dr. Wilmer J. Leon III
The tragic murder of Trayvon Martin immediately brought the
horrific murder of Emmett Till to mind. Trayvon was 17
while Emmett Till was 14. Both were murdered because of
stereotypes of young African American men being perceived as
threats to the security of White Americans. Trayvon, a
well-liked high school student from Miami with no criminal
record, was walking back to his father's girlfriend's home
when he was pursued and eventually shot. Emmett Till, a
well liked middle-school student from Chicago was minding
his own business in front of a store in Money, Mississippi,
at worst he was engaged in innocent boyhood banter before
later that evening being dragged from his great-uncle's
home and brutally murdered.
As America mourn's the senseless murder of Trayvon Martin
Americans should pause and reflect upon some of the issues
that his murder highlights. How does an individual with a
record of assaulting a police officer get a license for a
firearm? Should neighborhood watch participants be allowed
to carry firearms? Does the Stand Your Ground Law really
makes sense? What impact does a police department's
discretion in charging an individual have on the
disproportionate rate of African Americans that are
The National Rifle Association (NRA) and other gun rights
advocacy groups continue to challenge reasonable efforts to
require background checks on those interested in purchasing
firearms at gun shows. Contrary to what the Sanford, FL
police department told Trayvon's father Tracy Martin, George
Zimmerman did not have a "squeaky clean" record. According
to the Huffington Post, "The Orange County Clerk of Courts
website shows a man named George Zimmerman, 28, was charged
in July 2005 with resisting arrest with violence and battery
on an officer." How does an individual with this background
get a license to possess, let alone carry a concealed
firearm? The NRA continues to advocate for the alleged
rights of citizens to possess firearms but they never
advocate for the rights of the victims of the George
Zimmerman's, or the Seung-Hui Cho's (32 killed, 25 wounded
at VA Tech in 2007), or the Thomas Lane's (3 killed, 2
wounded at Chardon High School in 2012).
Neighborhood watch programs are necessary and very positive
organizations in thousands of communities across this
country. Not only do they provide additional eyes and ears
to protect citizens and property, they also provide an
additional mechanism to bring neighbors together. One does
have to ask if individuals who participate in these programs
should be allowed to carry weapons while they are engaging
in neighborhood watch activities. It's one thing for an
individual to carry a firearm for self-defense. It's
another for an individual who is untrained in police tactics
and practices to be armed while engaging in quasi-police
activities. According to MSNBC, Sanford's neighborhood
watch handbook says that program participants' main role is
to "observe and report suspicious activities" happening in
their neighborhood to police...The responsibility for
apprehending criminals belongs to the police
George Zimmerman, a failed "wanna' be police officer"
pursued Trayvon Martin against the direction of police
officials that he was in telephone contact with and against
the stated policy in the neighborhood watch handbook.
Zimmerman initiated the contact; that's offensive not
defensive behavior. Zimmerman armed with a 9mm handgun shot
and killed Trayvon Martin, only armed with a bag of Skittles
and a can of Arizona Tea. There is a greater chance of well
intentioned citizens engaged in neighborhood watch programs
to become vigilantes when armed while on patrol. Radios and
police scanners are one thing; firearms in the hands of the
untrained are another.
According to the Sanford, FL police department, George
Zimmerman has not been arrested for shooting an unarmed
Trayvon Martin because Zimmerman has claimed the shooting
was in self-defense. They say they have no evidence to
dispute Zimmerman's claim (Trayvon is no longer alive to
refute the allegation) and Zimmerman is being protected by
Florida's 'Stand Your Ground' law which allows people to
defend themselves with deadly force if they feel threatened.
Most states require an individual to flee the threat
before using deadly force if that option is available but
Florida has one of the broadest 'Stand Your Ground" laws' in
the country. In Florida the law says people can't be
arrested if they claim they were being threatened. Do
American's really want untrained armed individuals in our
neighborhoods with the ability to use deadly force under the
presumption of threat? Again, Trayvon is no longer alive to
refute the allegation.
According to MSNBC, "The Sanford City Commission voted 3-2
that it had no confidence in Police Chief Bill Lee Jr. over
his handling of the Trayvon Martin shooting ..." Chief Bill
Lee and others within the department made the decision not
to arrest Zimmerman for killing Trayvon. The Miami Herald
reports that the Republican authors of the Stand Your Ground
law have said, Trayvon's killer "... probably should be
arrested and doesn't deserve immunity under the statute...
it has been misapplied..."
What this highlights is the discretionary power that the
police and prosecutors have to charge or not charge an
individual with a crime. As we face the reality that a
disproportionate number of African Americans are
incarcerated in this country, one of the factors that has to
be considered is: who is responsible for charging them with
crimes and what are the factors being considered when making
the charges. According to the Sentencing Project, "More
than 60% of the people in prison are now racial and ethnic
minorities (African Americans make up 13 % of the US
population). For Black males in their twenties, 1 in every 8
is in prison or jail on any given day."
These are some of the tangential issues that surround the
senseless and tragic murder of Trayvon Martin. As Americans
mourn this loss and march for justice, these and other
related issues should not be overlooked.
I am troubled by the realization that George Zimmerman still
walks the streets, a free man. Dr. King told us, "The arc
of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards
justice." We must ensure that it does.

Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust [CODOH]
Academic Freedom on University Campuses being violated.
Groups Trying to hide holes in the holocaust story
by Bradley Smith, San Ysidro, California
It is distorted on every side-by media, the professorial
class, the State-that fragment of World War II history
called "Holocaust." In each case the exploitation of the
distortions produces rewards of wealth and position for
those who exploit them.
On the university campus it is especially notable, and
especially regrettable. It is there where each new class of
students is programmed to believe without the possibility of
doubt that during WWII the German people were of a
despicable moral character.
The American student is taught that the suffering of Jews is
never to be forgotten, while the suffering of Germans and
Japanese is never to be examined. The student is taught by
her professor that it was morally despicable for Germans to
deliberately murder innocent civilians, while the primary
German murder weapon cannot be proven to have been used. An
entire industry, soaking in wealth and self-indulgence,
routinely exploits this teaching.
American participation in the mass slaughter of hundreds of
thousands of innocent women and children in Germany and
Japan, deliberately burned alive, vaporized, or destroyed by
high explosive is not a moral issue in the American
classroom. The American student is taught that the suffering
of Jews during WWII represents a tragedy of unimaginable
breadth, while the suffering of Germans and Japanese is
neither here nor there because they were annihilated for a
"greater good." No discussion introduced or permitted.
American students are trapped by their professors who, to a
man and to a woman, follow the State line about the
Holocaust story initiated by the U.S. Government at the post
WWII war crimes trials, and exploited from that century to
this one primarily by Jewish special-interest organizations
such as the notorious Anti-Defamation League with its annual
budget of some 60 million dollars, and the State-sponsored,
Jewish-run, U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum with its own
annual budget of some 50 million dollars.
Most of the work done on CODOH.com and associated pages is
carried out by volunteers and independent entrepreneurs.
Other than supervising CODOH, I focus on taking revisionist
arguments to students on the American campus. My method is
simple, direct, and very budget conscious. We place small,
clickable announcements for a specific CODOH page in the
online edition of student newspapers across the nation. We
back that up with the intense use of extensive email lists,
developed in-house, of students and faculty at the targeted

students on the American campus nationwide with revisionist
information on "Holocaust" and the reasons why, bloated as
the story is with fraud and falsehood, it should be open to
routine critical examination. I make it clear to students
that their professors, as a class, stand united in the view
that Jewish suffering will be promoted endlessly on their
campus, while German and Japanese suffering will be ignored,
and that they are united in this primarily for profit and
career. At the expense of every ideal associated with the
