Egypt : Demonstrations and counter demonstrations. Four days
of attacks on the Muslim Brotherhood left 6 people dead and
700 wounded. All of them are from the MB. Then the
Brotherhood responded with huge numbers of people but they
were under orders not to be violent. They did injure scores
of "protestors" but not seriously. New Trend analysts want
to warn the Muslim Brotherhood that it appears that western
intelligence agencies and big money from the Sheikhdoms have
infiltrated the "opposition." They are trying to overthrow
an elected president and an elected assembly. There is mild
support for "shar'ia" in Morsi constitution. BBC has been
using "sharia" as if it is a problem. The protestors are
followers of the tyrant Hosni Mubarak, as are the judges on
whose hands is the blood of good Muslims. The protestors
also include pro-western people as well as genuine seculars
who simply dont want Islam. The army has come in fearing
that if the Islamics get angry someone might declare jihad
against the anti-Sharia Mubarak people and the

Bangladesh. People are now coming out to demonstrate against
the pro-India corrupt regime which is planning to execute or
sentence innocent Islamic scholars of Jamaate Islam. On
December 4 there were rallies by unarmed Islamics in Dhaka,
Sylhet, Narayangunj and Rajshahi. Heavy police forces hit
the demonstrators hard, injuring 69 Islamics who were then
arrested. In Chirirbandar, the police opened fire killing
one Islamic person.
Also for Bangladesh, a group in New York led by Fahd Ahmed
is blaming Walmart for the oppressive conditions of workers
in Bangladesh which led to a fire which resulted in the
deaths of scores of poor women..
Spotlights on so-called "State" for Palestine
from Imam Badi Ali, Jamaat al-Muslimeen National Shoora,
Recognition of the 1967 border is recognition of Israel
as a legitimate entity, no longer an occupier.
What can be done with 1/10 th of our homeland?
A state without authority is an occupied "state."
What kind of "president" gives concessions to Israel,
unasked! He is selling his land without the people's
permission. Here is a man who has excluded the rights of
Palestinian refugees to return to their homes. Who gave him
the authority to abolish the right of return?
What he is calling Palestine are broken pieces of land,
shattered pieces of cities. There is no link between these
pieces. How is it a state?
They are assisting the occupation, defining it as legal.
Such a "state" will repress the resistance, repressing even
They are killing historic Palestine,. replacing it with
a rump, accepting a state which has no definition.
Worst of all the celebration of the sell out. A place
which has no resources, no borders where Israel can arrest
anyone and set up more settlements.
This "state" is a big lie. Certainly it is not
Palestine. The right to resist is being taken away Occupiers
are being called neighbors.
It cannot be called Palestine. It should be called "Abu
Mazen State." [Nickname of Mahmoud Abbas.]
Spotlights on Egypt. [Also from Imam Badi Ali.]
Muslims of Egypt are divided even in their vision of
what Egypt should be.
Differences should not be such that they are used by the
enemies to weaken Islam.
We Muslims are good at revolution but weak in protecting
the revolution and its objectives.
Be clear about what we want. Egyptians should not be shy
about Islam. Our objective is Islam.
There is confusion and it is not not being explained. We
are not getting Qur'an or hadith. Instead Egypt is getting a
$4.8 billion loan from the IMF. Do we want Islam or
The groups helpers should be clear about the sources of
money. Is it going to help or is coming from the Gulf to
control Egypt and Palestine?
If Egypt wants to be Islamic, change is needed. We
should know who are our friends and who are our enemies.
Instead we see that the power of the previous regime is
Muslim Brotherhood has become important. It looks like
the power which will be ruling the countries of the region.
The western powers are negotiating with the Muslim
Brotherhood. Islam is being mixed with capitalism. The
Palestine issue can only be solved through Islam but the
Islamic solution is being avoided.
Egypt is the backbone of the Muslim Brotherhood. If that
fails, MB will fail all over the Arab world. The MB should
focus on the Qur'an and Sunnah. There is no other way!
Latest revolutionary khutba
Authentic Islam as seen by a woman: Asma, r.a., the daughter
of Abu Bakr, r,a.
On December 7, 2012 Dr. Kaukab Siddique gave the juma'
khutba and led prayers in Masjid Jamaat a-Muslimeen in
Baltimore. Here are the main points of the khutba for
countrywide distribution by email, inshallah.
Text: "And their Lord has accepted of them, and answered
them: 'Never will I allow to be lost the work of any of you,
be ye male or female: You are one body ..." [The Qur'an
Islam is a way of life for all people. It is not restricted
to some one category. It is for young and old, Arab and
non-Arab, men and women.
Asma, r.a., the daughter of Abu Bakr, r.a., encompasses in
her life extremely important aspects of Islam as seen by a
When she was a child, she embraced Islam, right in the
beginning of the Prophet's mission [pbuh]. So it's not
correct to count only Khadija, Zayd, Ali and Abu Bakr [Allah
be pleased with them] as the first Muslims. Islam does not
disregard serious minded children. Ali, r.a., was only 12
when he accepted Islam. Asma, r.a., was even younger,
perhaps. 7 or 8. Very intelligent and involved. So, let's
bring up our children to be serious.
In his efforts to leave Makka for Madinah, the Prophet,
pbuh, with Abu Bakr, r.a., Muhammad, pbuh, took refuge in a
cave known as Thaur, going south of Makka. Thus the kuffar
were deceived because they thought he would go north to get
to Madinah. Deceive the oppressors.
There was no food or water for the two most blessed people
in Islam hiding in the cave. Asma, r.a., brought them the
food and water. She had to walk several miles in the desert,
then climb a mountain, then slide down over rocks into the
cave. To save the water from spilling and the food from
falling into the sand, she tore her waistband into two. With
one piece she tied up the mouth of the water skin, and with
the other she tied up the food. Hence her nickname
zaat-un-nataqain [the owner of the two waist bands].
She had to be extremely strong, able to walk for miles in
the hot sand and climb into the mountain cave. Also, she was
fearless knowing that the oppressors had set a bounty of a
100 camels on Muhammad, pbuh [which would be about $100
million today]. Her life was in danger for saving him.
Asma, r.a., did the hijrah to Madina and took the oath of
allegiance [ baiyah ] to Muhammad, pbuh.
She was married to Zubair, r.a.,and gave birth to eight
children, 5 boys and 3 girls. Zubair, r.a., was one of the
great mujahid sahaba of the Prophet, pbuh.
Even married, she was a working woman and went out several
miles each day to collect dates to bring them back for her
husband to take to the market. Thus Islam endorses working
Once she was walking home with a big pile of goods on her
head when the Prophet, pbuh, saw her. He made his camel sit
down and invited her to sit behind him. There was a group of
men with him, so out of HAYA [modesty and shyness], she
refused and walked back home alone. Later, her husband was
sad that she carried such a burden. She said, she knew
Zubair, r.a., was a man of honor and would not have liked
her to be with a crowd of men. He replied that she should
have accepted the ride and that it is a sin to refuse the
Asma's son Abdullah, was the first child born in the Islamic
community after the hijrah. The Prophet, pbuh, loved the
baby so much that he kissed him and put his saliva in the
Asma, r.a., prepared Abdullah, r.a., to be a great scholar
and a great mujahid.
The khilafate Rashida [the rightly guided caliphate] ended
and was followed by Kingship. The tragedy of Kerbala
occurred when the grandson of the Prophet, pbuh, was
martyred by the tribal army of the king.
Most of our scholars do not notice that Asma's son,
Abdullah, fought the same dynasty as Hussain, r.a., did and
defeated it. He set up an Islamic caliphate and scholars
consider it the continuation of the righrly guided
caliphate. He was extremely pious and brave and was well
guided by the sublime Asma,r.a,
As more and more wealth came into the Muslim domain, more
and more corruption arose. Thus Abdullah, r.a., who was not
corrupt lost followers while the tyrant in Syria became
Finally a stage came when Abdullah, r.a., was left alone. He
was faced with the same choice as Hussain, r.a.,: Accept the
king's corrupt power or go down fighting for Islam.
Abdullah, r.a., chose to go down fighting.
He went to say farewell to his mother, Asma, r.a., who was
now 80 plus years old. When she embraced him, she felt the
armor under his shirt. She told him: There is no need for
this. You are not fighting for the world. You are fighting
for shahadat. He took off the armor and fought for a very
long time till he was brought down by missiles [arrows]
fired by the Ummayeds.
He was martyred in the Ka'aba, a much holier place than
Kerbala. Isn't it a shame that our sectarians cry over
Hussain, r.a., but ignore Abdullah, r.a., when both were
fighting the same enemy?
After Abdullah, r.a., was killed, the king ordered his men
to bring Asma, r.a., to his presence even if she had to be
dragged by her hair. She refused to go and quoted a hadith
that evil would arise from the tribe of the king. The
historians do not divulge what happened to her after that.
The hadith she quoted is in Sahih Muslim. She passed way
soon after her son, in the year 73 after hijrah.
Dear brothers, tell your mothers, daughters, wives, sisters,
aunts, grandmothers the story of Asma.
Pray for the victory of Islam in Kashmir, Chechnya,
Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Iraq, Somalia, Syria,
Nigeria, Sudan and above all against the yahood in
Ya Allah help Jamaat al-Muslimeen to unite the Muslims of
America on the Qur'an and the hadith.
[Hadith narratives about Asma, r.a., are scattered in the
books of authentic Hadith but they were collected by a great
scholar, Muhammad ibn Sa'ad, in his monumental work known as
the Tabaqat in the year 230 after the hijrah.]

Top ALS researcher: Teepu Siddique

DIAGNOSING ALS'S CAUSE
Last summer, the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern
University announced that its researchers had uncovered a
common cause for the various forms of amyotrophic lateral
sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease). That dramatic
breakthrough could lead to revolutionary new therapies to
treat the fatal neurodegenerative disorder.
Leading the team of scientists was Teepu Siddique, the
64-year-old neurologist who has devoted much of his adult
life to trying to understand and cure the illness. "ALS has
a very tragic outcome," he says. "It's like being jailed in
your own body. It's an example of the overall human
condition of futility and helplessness. That is the
philosophic and humanistic underpinning of my interest in
The researchers' great discovery was a protein—ubiquilin
2—that recycles other damaged proteins in the neurons of the
spinal cord and the brain. In people with ALS, ubiquilin 2
isn't doing its job, and the damaged proteins accumulate,
leading to paralysis and death. As this new information
moves from the laboratory to the clinic, it offers hope to
the 350,000 people worldwide who suffer from one of the
three varieties of ALS: familial, sporadic, and
ALS/dementia. What's more, it might one day also help treat
Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
In addition to working in the clinic with patients who have
neuromuscular disorders, the Pakistan-born Siddique plans to
continue his research in the lab. (One of his longtime
collaborators there is his wife, Nailah.) "The only way the
human condition changes has to be by human effort," he says.

Western Plans for Syria: Muslim Sacrifices to be used to
install Pro-west Puppets
After 20 months of struggle, both with peaceful rallies and
armed resistance, the Islamics of Syria have sacrificed more
than 40,000 of their people to bring down the tyrant Bashar
al-Assad. Parts of Syria are now under Islamic control,
including a swath of territory from Aleppo to the Turkish
border and in the east up to the Iraqi border. Small arms
and ammunition are coming in from Turkey while mujahideen
from all over the Arab world and Africa are pouring in from
Iraq, many of them battle hardened in Afghanistan.
Assad has lost more than 5,000 of his troops but still has
brigades of tanks, artillery, helicopters and jet fighters
which the Islamics cannot match, His troops have surrounded
Homs and his forces are battering towns around Damascus
where the defectors from his own army have dug in.
It's quite clear now that the defeat of Assad is only a
matter of time though he will kill many more people before
he goes down. The Alawite and Syrian Christian communities
who are the bedrock of the blood thirsty regime are facing
the wrath of the people which turn out to be ugly but not
comparable to what Assad's men have done on a horrific
The West and Israel are watching the slaughter in the hope
that Assad will kill the Islamics on such a scale that the
chances of Islamic rule will end. However, the powerful
emergence of al-Nusra, an al-Qaida affiliate, and messages
from Dr. al-Zawahiri urging Muslims to being down Assad have
created a dilemma for the West and Israel. Within that
context, America's Republican leaders have been urging that
sophisticated weapons be sent to those elements in the
Syrian rebel forces which are seen as Islamically marginal.
Senator McCain has been urging that the secular opposition
should be heavily armed otherwise al-Qaida and other
Islamics will gain.
Real alarm is emerging from Washington that the mujahideen
would be the biggest winners with the downfall of Assad.
Hence the US is using the ploy of Assad's alleged plan to
launch chemical attacks. The US is planning for a way to
intervene militarily in Syria to save its seculat allies
among the rebels and to set them up as the new "government"
if and when Assad falls.
The claim of danger from Assad's chemical weapons sounds
bogus if one realizes that no weapon can do more damage than
Assad has already caused. He has killed 40,000 people.
What more can he do?
So, the West, with USA in the fore, want to come in as
saviors of the Syrian people, somewhat on the same pattern
as in Bosnia, where the Serbs had almost finished their
dirty work when the "saviors" pounced. The result is a
Bosnia almost devoid of Islamic content and is tied to the

"Verily in Yusuf and his brothers are signs [or lessons] for
seekers [after Truth].
He said: O my Lory! The prison is more to my liking than the
evil to which they invite me. Unless you turn away their
trap from me,
I (in my youthful folly) may feel inclined toward them and
be of the ignorant." Qur'an 12:7 & 12:33
I can find only three places for a righteous man in an evil
society; on the battlefield fighting his enemy; in a cell
imprisoned by his enemy; or, in his grave free from his
enemy. Outside of this, I find hypocrisy!
The Prophet (pbuh), in making reference to Islam. called it
"This Affair". Conscious struggle is predicated upon the
success of "This Affair". This Affair is a consciousness of
The Will and Plan of 'The Creator' and a joyful submission
to that Will and Plan. Islam, from the root word Aslama,
which means 'he gave up, surrendered or submitted... is the
consciousness and rational submission of the limited human
will to the Absolute and Omnipotent Will of 'The Creator'
ALLAH. This Affair is a deliberate, conscious and rational
act of remembrance. The word which means human ( Ihsan ) has
as its root word ( Niysan ) which means forgetfulness. You
can only forget something that you know. The knowledge of
man and his Creator (since man did not make himself) must be
something known to man. There is no forgetting what you
True commitment demands consistency, this is firmness of
purpose. The correct response and resistance to prison
conditions, and any condition of oppression is Truth. Truth
and falsehood will always be in conflict, and Truth must
always win in the end (for it is as ALLAH wills). He has
willed that His Truth will triumph through the deen of those
who surrender in His Will. Truth is a trust... falsehood is
The lack of faith will crush you far more than any defeat
ever could. The proof of faith is in struggle. Every claim
must, and will be, tested.
Belief or faith is the bedrock of conscious struggle. Belief
is as much an integral part of the human makeup as the
intellect (mind) and physique (body); it is the bridge that
spans action and non-action, resistance and acquiescence,
struggle and resignation. Reality cannot be learned by the
intellect alone. It must be comprehended by the total
personality (nature), by the imagination (mind), the soul
and the body (mind-full-ness)... human revolution ('sickness
wit da quickness').
Belief, in any lesser or more quality may assume any given
value or set of values. What is the value of one who says he
does not believe? Is that not his belief? Values based upon
incorrect belief are incapable of producing the moral
incentives to bring about the human ascension that is
necessary for a truly revolutionary progression. Without a
divine criterion, belief in any lessor or more quantity may
assume any given value or set of values. Murder of other
tribes in the name of progress is, for some, a culturally
accepted value...a belief. Bigotry and hatred has its own
way of pretending righteousness and virtue. It is belief in
The Creator that gives us an understanding of His creation
including ourselves, i.e. the human. To be healthy, our life
must be molded and shaped by a high moral system which can
have no basis in its application except that it is favored
by The Creator.
The real difference between mankind is not "race" or place
of birth, it is only the correctness of belief. The real
qualitative difference of the human; by divine standard is
not gender, color, bloodline, nationality or tribe... is the
quality of belief. The Creator says He has created the human
as one race (all come from two, Adam and his mate -
Hawwaa/Eve). The primal difference of the human is belief
and gender (believers and non-believers, male and female)...
and He divided them into nations and tribes, "that they may
get to know each other, not that they hate each other."
Qur'an 49:13 The Prophet (pbuh) said: "The best amongst the
human is the one with the best behavior."

Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust
NOTE: This text went to student organizations, the student
press, and faculty on campuses across the nation.
OPRAH WINFREY AND ELIE WIESEL
Oprah and Elie: One's a fool, and one's a fraud. Do you
wonder which might be which?
Being a student, you probably do not watch Oprah Winfrey
regularly, but you most likely hear about Elie Wiesel on
your campus frequently.
Now Oprah has interviewed Elie again. This interview will
air on "Super Soul Sunday"December 9 at 11:00 a.m. ET/PT on
OWN. One segment of the interview deals with the opportunity
to create new "witnesses" to the Holocaust, a matter that is
of considerable interest to (as Norman Finkelstein has it)
the Holocaust Industry.
At one point Winfrey asks: "You've said that Holocaust
survivors are becoming an endangered species. Indeed, you
all are. Yet you don't fear the memory of the Holocaust will
ever be lost. Why?"
Wiesel replies: "I'll tell you why. Because, you know, all
of us who went through that experience considered ourselves
as witnesses. When the last witness will be gone, I don't
want to be that one. It's too tragic. What will happen? So
on one hand, you could become pessimistic that the last
witness -- all the knowledge, all the experience, all the
memories will be buried. Then what? So I came up with a
theory which I think is valid.
"To listen to a witness is to become one . . . . So
therefore those who have listened to us, who have read my
books and other survivors' memoirs, we have a lot of

If you want to test how "valid" Elie Wiesel's theory is it
will do you no good to ask your professor. She is committed
to belief on this question, not to any kind of examination
of the facts of the matter. Here I will give you only a
couple suggestions. It's a start. See:

Auschwitz she swallowed diamonds and shat them out daily for
a year or so (video).
Abraham Bomba the Barber of Treblinka (eyewitness) who tells
his demonstrably foolish lies to Claude Lanzmann, the
demonstrably foolish creator of the universally applauded
film Shoah. Applauded across the board, I might add, by the
American professorial class.
I could go on, but these two links alone will introduce you
to material that no professor will allow you to question in
any classroom on your campus. Ask yourself why that should

What Zionist America did to a Palestinian Professor
After being Acquitted, Dr. Sami al-Arian remains under House
Arrest since 2008!
WASHINGTON DC - Dec. 6, 2012
December 6, 2005 shall be remembered as a great day in which
justice triumphed over intolerance and the First Amendment
reigned supreme. On that day, a jury of twelve ordinary
citizens refused to return a single guilty verdict against
Dr. Sami Al-Arian and three other Palestinian men accused of
terrorism in one of the most high profile cases to emerge
out of the highly charged atmosphere after 9/11.
Notwithstanding the concerted efforts by the government to
instill fear into the public hearts and minds during the
trial, coupled with an elaborate intimidation campaign
against Arabs and Muslims in the Tampa Bay area, an American
jury was able to sit through a six-month trial and uphold
the Constitution, despite being subjected to "a mountain of
evidence," as one prosecutor referred to the government's
case. In reality, this "evidence" encompassed activities
protected by the First Amendment: speech, beliefs, thoughts,
opinions, and associations.
Remarkably, much of the media coverage blurred the line
between factual reporting and advocating for the
prosecution, disregarding journalistic standards in a
disgraceful and sensationalist display that resulted in a
trial in the court of public opinion that was more akin to a
lynch mob. In spite of these pressures, the courtroom jury
was, in the words of one juror, able to see through the
"smoke and mirrors" displayed by the government.
In his statement a few months later, Dr. Al-Arian thanked
the jury for its "remarkable courage and efforts in the
service of justice" in the case. He further stated that
serving justice through "an impartial and conscientious
jury" is how America could "win the hearts and minds of
people across the globe, especially in the Arab and Muslim
world." By rendering a just verdict, the jury understood
Martin Luther King's famous statement, "Injustice anywhere
is a threat to justice everywhere."
Dr. Al-Arian's defense did not present a single witness
despite eighty witnesses offered by the government. The
First Amendment was his only defense, a position validated
by the jury's verdict, and the reason why this decision to
uphold one of the most sacred founding principles of the
United State should be remembered every year on this day. We
call upon all First Amendment advocates and people of
conscience to honor the First Amendment every year on this
day. It protects all of us.
On this day, this great jury stood for the primacy of free
speech over government censorship and criminalization of
speech. As former Supreme Court Justice, Thurgood Marshall,
once said, "Above all else, the First Amendment means that
government has no power to restrict expression because of
its message, its ideas, its subject matter, or its
Some time ago the National Liberty Fund (NLF) released a
video interview with Ron, a member of the jury who
demonstrated his courage in this trial. It is an eyeopening
account that presents an inside look at how the jury
deliberated and reached its decision for acquittal on major
terrorism charges despite thousands of highly inflammatory
and prejudicial assertions made by the prosecution.
The interview is featured on YouTube in 3 parts: Part I,
Part II, and Part III. The video-interview (total: 26 min.)
appears courtesy of Line Halvorsen and Jan Dalchow, the
filmmakers behind USA VS. AL-ARIAN, the award-winning
But despite the acquittals and the conclusion of the case
between the government and Dr. A-Arian through a plea deal,
the case is not over yet after almost nine years (5 1/2 of
which were spent in prison including 43 months in solitary
confinement) of unjustly persecuting the Muslim Palestinian
Since September 2008 Dr. Al-Arian has been under house
arrest in the Washington DC area pending a ruling by the
presiding judge of the dismissal motion of the unjust
contempt charges brought against him by the government.
On this day we also remember Thomas Jefferson, one of the
great founding fathers of this nation who understood the
true meaning of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, but
above all the inviolability of justice when he said: "I
tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that
His justice cannot sleep forever." To honor his words, we
must not rest until all those who have been denied justice
or continue to await justice will finally receive it.
