February 15: Syrian Islamics captured a major Assad air base
in Sefeira, east of Aleppo airport. Large arms cache fell
into Islamic hands. Assad is preparing a major
counterattack. An Iranian general has been killed by the
mujahideen. Heavy casualties on both sides including senior
Syrian officers killed. Both sides are abducting opponents
to carry out exchanges.
Syria has complained to the UN that Turkey is permitting
Al-Nusra and al-Qaeda to mobilize in refugee camps in
A photo has emerged on facebook of mujahideen kissing a
large painting of Shaykh Osama.
February 16: Pakistani horror: A big bomb explosion killled
scores of Shi'a civilians in Quetta, at least 63 killed
200 injured. A tiny sectarian group Lashkare Jhangvi has
taken "credit." [Our observers say that the government's
hand could be behind these horrific attacks on Shias.
Jhangvi is a small group. Why does the government not arrest
anyone? How can such large quanities of explosives be
transported into a city where each entry point is heavily
guarded? These could be groups trying to damage relations
between Iran and Pakistan.]

Jamaat al-Muslimeen Press Release
Anniversary of the Islamic revolution.
We hail the Islamic Republic of Iran and the leadership of
Ayatollah Ali Khamene'i.
Iran has retained its independence
and has helped the people of Iran to prosper. We strongly
oppose Iran's foreign policy on Syria and its lack of
support for Islamic resistance in Pakistan, Afghanistan,
Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, Nigeria and Mali. However, the fact
that Iran has retained its national integrity in spite of
American sanctions and Israeli gangsterism is a great
achievement in itself. Iran has every right to develop its
nuclear program, including its weapons program, especially
when the terrorist regime in Tel Aviv has numerous nuclear
bombs and believes in pre-emptive assault.
The voting process in Iran under Islamic auspices is the
greatest achievement in the entire history of Persia. Just
think of the fascist Shah of Iran's regime which America
We pray that Iran will-reshape its foreign policy. We hail
Ayatollah Khamenei's order to Shias not to attack Ayesha,
r.a., and the sahaba, r.a We hope he will speak against
Assad and extend the hand of friendship to the mujahideen as
he did to President Morsi of Egypt.
Just for your information, Dr. Kaukab Siddique interviewed
Imam Khomeini first in Qum and then in Tehran.
The result was a book: Khomeini's Iran: An Islamic Perspective. Dr. Siddique also met Ayatollah Montazeri, Ayatollah Taleghani,
his daughter Azam Taleghani and many others. He also is the
only US outsider to have visited Iran's prison system to
rebut atrocity propaganda by the MKO rebels. The Iranians
knew he did not agree with their school of thought and that
he admires Ayesha, r.a. and the Sahaba, r.a. He prayed Sunni
style in Qum's most famous mosques.

"Imam" Feisal Abdul Rauf: Remember what New Trend Wrote
[New Trend condemned this "imam" way back. We had pointed
out that building a mosque near Ground Zero was a way of
saying that 9.11 attacks by the 19 were aimed not only at
high value American targets but at Islam. We saw that the US
government is behind the mosque scheme. Many ICNA-ISNA
types were fooled by Abdul Rauf. Now read this : What the
"imam" allegedly did.]
NEW YORK, Feb 5 (Reuters) - The head of a proposed mosque
that was to be built near the site of the Sept. 11, 2001
attacks in New York City was sued on Tuesday and accused of
squandering millions of dollars in donations on lavish
lifestyle perks for himself and his wife.
The lawsuit, filed in Manhattan Supreme Court by several
donors, accuses Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf of diverting $167,000
from private donations and $3 million from the Malaysian
government for his personal use.
The money was intended for the Cordoba Initiative and the
American Society for Muslim Advancement, two non-profits
founded by Rauf aimed at educating the public about Islam
and combating anti-Islam sentiment, the lawsuit said.
Rauf used the money to pay for vacations, real estate,
entertainment, a luxury sports car and other gifts and
lavish lifestyle perks for himself and his wife, the
lawsuit said. The lawsuit also accused Rauf of falsifying
the two groups' tax returns for several years to conceal
fund transfers and sources.
The donors are seeking $25 million in damages.
A representative for the Cordoba Initiative and Rauf both
referred requests for comment to their lawyer, Paul Knight,
who did not immediately return a call Tuesday afternoon.
Letter: In Defense of Press TV
Your story on Malcolm Shabazz is WRONG... The fbi was
involved to insure that he was detained in a county jail to
prevent any travel to Iran. He was arrested before his
travel. Press TV has interviews on Mumia Abu Jamal/MOVE and
included to interview Cynthia McKinney, Ramona Africa, Dr.
Randy Short and others etc.
S. Green [New York]
New Trend response: New Trend stands by its report. The
family has categorically stated that he is not in federal
custody but is safely at home. He has been arrested before
several times for various minor offenses but nothing to do
with politics. Press TV has harmed Islamic causes by
opposing all Islamic groups not backed by Iran. Press TV's
support for the Syrian monster Bashar Assad and its fake
stories against the Syrian mujahideen has made it the
laughing stock of the Muslim world.
Letter: America Needs al-Jazeera to learn about Palestine
While channel surfing last night in our hotel room in
Jamaica, I came across an Al Jazeera t.v. channel. A
Palestinian woman was speaking from the balcony of her home
telling what her life was like living so near to illegal
Jewish settlers. The balcony of her home had a screen all
around it due to the fact that nearby illegal Jewish
settlers were constantly throwing rocks at her trying to hit
people standing on the balcony. She talked about how the
illegal settlers treated the Pal. people living nearby. It
was pretty awful.
I hope that Al Jazeera t.v. comes to America so that the
Americans can hear about the atrocities taking place in
Israel against the Pal. people. It will be an eye opener.

any other American media outlet. It has signed up Sarah
Palin for several million dollars.]

Text: "And verily we have sent among every nation a
messenger proclaiming: Worship Allah alone and shun
taghoot." [The Qur'an 16:36]
Absolute certainty of the end of this world and the
coming of the Hereafter is essential to Islamic faith.
The small meteor which struck Russia's Ural mountains
injuring mre than 950 people, and the bigger asteroid which
passed only 17,000 miles away, are signs from Allah that the
world could end very quickly.
Sura Tariq of the Qur'an reminds us of the sky and the
descent of shooting stars out of it. We are reminded that
only Allah can protect us.
While we are alive, our behavior determines what will
happen to us in the Hereafter. Do we take Allah as our
authority in all matters or are we following taghoot?
Taghoot is any authority other than that of Allah. It
could be a cult leader, or one whom we consider a saint, or
a dictator or a king or a parliament or a husband or a boss
or a man of wealth and influence.
Pharoah is highlighted in the Qur'an because he
considered himself like God and could decree life and death.
Allah made an example out him that we should never
legitimize any human power.
Taghoot has taken over America. The man in the White
House thinks he is Pharoah. He doles out life and death.
Only yesterday his forces of death and destruction killed 5
more Afghan children. He orders shots into the homes of the
Islamic people of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia
killing people whom he suspects of opposition, even mental
opposition, to America.
The next stage is the use of drones against America's own
people. For the first time a drone tracked Officer Dorner
who rose in rebellion against the racist policies of police.
Police brutality is widespread across America. Taghoot in
police uniform can stop your car anywhere if you are Black
or poor. If you are scared and try to run, you can be killed
on the spot.
Officer Dorner saw what was being done to his people. He
rose in armed revolt. The government crushed him with
He fought well and beat them back. They then brough a
demolition machine to smash the walls of the house he was
in. The police chatter has been taped. They were urging each
other to burn him. They were determined not to let him
survive and talk about his cause.
This is the only country in the world where the police
can commit a horrible crime and then claim to have
investigated themselves. They justify their action and it is
immediately broadcast by the Zionist media as the truth.That
is taghoot in action.
This President legitimizes sodomy by consent to the
extent that he claims sodomizers can marry each other. Once
homosexuality has been legalized even in marriage, adultery
and fornication can hardly be considered sins. Thus taghoot
violates the law of Allah, violates Islam, violates
The good news is that taghoot cannot defeat Islam. All
over the world non-Muslims are becoming Muslims. Today BBC
admitted that 5,000 people have become Muslims even in the
little country called England. Of these, many are women.
This taghooti culture targets women, oppresses them,
humiliates them, makes them take their clothes off in return
for money. Women in the West know that this is an
oppressive, immoral system. So they are embracing Islam in
We are living in a State Of Martial Law but don't Know it.
By Sis. Sherry Garris [Virginia]
A group of activists, reporters and scholars, including
Chris Hedges and Noam Chomsky, are suing the Obama
administration over the controversial provision in the NDAA
(National Defense Authorization Act), saying, "it could
allow for the indefinite detention of journalists and others
who interact with certain groups." The case is known as
Hedges vs Obama. Last week an appeals court was asked by the
Justice Department for a reversal on a judges earlier
decision blocking indefinite detention, stating that, "the
ruling would hamper it's ability to fight terrorism. The
Obama administration has already won an emergency freeze of
the ruling while the case is appealed."
Under Article I, Section 8 of the US Constitution states
"Congress shall have power..... To raise and support Armies,
but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a
longer Term than two Years." So, every year Congress passes
the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which makes
appropriations for the defense budget. On December 31,2011,
President Obama signed the NDAA for Fiscal year 2012. Under
Title X, Subtitle D of this law is section 1021, which
legalizes martial law in the United States. It reads as,
Affirmation of authority of the Armed Forces of the United
States to detain covered persons pursuant to the
Authorization of Use of Military Force," 'this provision
allows the United States military to act as a police force
against any person (including American citizens) suspected
of terrorism. Further, they may hold these persons without
trial indefinitely.' And, again reaffirming for 2013!
Despite pressure from Senator Rand Paul, "citing Section
1021 as a gross, unconstitutional overreach of federal
power." 'This provision all but wipes out nearly our entire
Bill of Rights in one fell swoop and that the persons
detaining you serve as judge, jury, and executioner in
determining, who qualifies as a terrorist.' "The NDAA's
dangerous detention provisions would authorize the president
-and all future presidents- to order the military to pick up
and indefinitely imprison people captured anywhere in the
world, far from any battlefield." "The ACLU (American Civil
Liberties Union) believes that any military detention of
American citizens or others within the United States is
unconstitutional and illegal, including under the NDAA. In
addition, the breadth of the NDAA's detention authority
violates international law because it is not limited to
people captured in the context of an actual armed conflict
as required by the laws of war."
This is the legislation that keeps Guantanamo Bay from
closing. And, as long as they allow this legislation to be
signed into law they never have to set them free! No Trial!
No Judge! No Jury! No real evidence that a crime has been
committed! You can be locked up til the day you Die!
Bangladesh under Occupation of Brutal Tyrants
Dr. Firoz Mahboob Kamal
Insurgency against judiciary
The government sponsored insurgency against judiciary has
started in the heart of the capital Dhaka. Recently
Bangladesh government's International Crime Tribunal (ICT)
has declared life-term imprisonment for one of the Jamaat
-e-Islami's (JI) central leader Mr. Abdul Qader Molla for
alleged serial killings and rapes. Mr. Molla flatly refused
any such crime. He also claimed that he was in the rural
district of Faridpur in 1971 - far away from the alleged
crime spot at Mirpur in Dhaka. The defence team also put the
argument that Mr. Abdul Qader joined Dhaka University in
1972 as a residential student and after graduation joined
Bangladesh Rifle School as a teacher. Later on, joined a
daily newspaper as journalist and become vice president of
Dhaka Journalist Union for 2 years. How could it happen that
no case was filed against him during the last 40 years' long
Mr. Abdul Qader Molla's lawyers claim that their client did
not receive any fair trial. It has been a travesty of
judgement. Even the human rights organisations in Bangladesh
have expressed their serious concerns about the whole
judicial procedures. The BAL has put their own people as
judge, prosecution lawyer and investigating police officers
- which itself kills the neutrality of judicial procedure.
But after all this stage-managed drama, the ruling BAL and
its left leaning partners are not happy with the judgement.
Their demand was nothing less than the plain judicial
murder. Since the judges could fulfil their demand, they
have instigated their cadres to launch the current
Elimination of razakars and neo-razakars
Now the judicial issue is no more confined within the
premise of the court, the ruling party has brought it to the
street. The workers of BAL and its ruling alliance have
launched a non-stop protest rally nearly a week ago and
still continuing day and night in one of the Dhaka's busiest
round-abouts called 'Shahbag'. Their slogans are very
ridiculous and unprecedented even in Bangladesh standard.
They are not demanding a fair trial, rather quick execution
of not only Abdul Qader Molla and but also all other
razakars (volunteers) who were against the creation of
Bangladesh in 1971. The leaders of the rally have given ICT
an ultimatum and a much specified job: that's not a fair
trial of razakars, but hanging every one of them.
The exact number of razakars is not known. Bangladesh has
4,451 rural unions and 66 districts and 500 subdistricts
(upazilla) (according to the current data). If 20 people
were from each union working for a united Pakistan than
their number will be more than 100, 000 only from the
country's rural unions. But the razakars were also in
cities. In 1971, like every union, each urban district and
sub-district town had their own peace committee and
razakars. The NATO force couldn't have control even over 30%
area of Afghanistan; they could seldom go beyond the heavily
guarded cities. In the eighties, the Soviet Russia's huge
army couldn't have a better control over Afghanistan either.
Even now, more than 60 % of the territory is controlled by
the anti-occupation Taleban forces. But the case of the
muktibahini was different; they could not take under control
even a single sub-district (thana) prior to the arrival of
Indian army. The Pakistan Army had a force of only 45,000.
The razakars put a fierce resistance against India-trained
muktibahini till the arrival of India's huge army in last
weeks of Novembner and December. So BAL have real grievances
against these razakars. But the question is: do they want to
kill all these razakars? Is the country ready for such
Now the issue has been made much more complicated by BAL and
its political partners. They have redefined razakar.
According to the new definition, even those who are born
after the creation of Bangladesh are called razakar -if they
do not show allegiance to Hasina's de-Islamising pro-Indian
politics and if take 1971's razakars as their political
ally. So they call former President Gen. Ziaur Rahman and
his widow and former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia as razakar
too. They have threatened to put these neo- razakars on
trial. This way, the list of razakars is becoming unending.
Even the columnists who write in anti-government newspapers,
the academics who criticise the government on TV talk-shows,
the students who show allegiance to sharia and pan-Islamism,
and the politicians who take anti-Indian stance are also
labelled as razakars.
Hasina's Interference in Judiciary
In any civilised country, the judiciary is an independent
body. Neither the government nor any people on the street
possess any right to dictate the judgement for the court,
nor can deny any pronounced judgement. Such demand
jeopardise independent functioning of the judiciary. But
that norm does not function in Bangladesh. Few weeks ago,
the ICT announced in its judgement that Moulana Abul Kalam
Azad -an ex JI leader, and now out of Bangladesh, to be
hanged for his alleged crime of killing and rape. AL people
celebrated that ruling by distributing sweets in the street.
But when the court gave life sentence in another case
against JI leader Abdul Qader Molla, they burst into
rebellion. Now the judiciary faces insurgency - organised by
the cadres of the ruling party.
The judiciary does not possess any policing manpower; hence
it cannot protect its own judges and the premises. Such
responsibility lies on the government's shoulder. It must
protect the unarmed judges from the rebellion. Otherwise how
they can physically survive? That too is failing in
Bangladesh. The Prime Minister Hasina not only highly
appreciated these rebels in her recent speech in the
parliament, but also advised the ICT judges to listen to the
demands of the protesters. But if the judges incorporate
their demands of capital punishment in the ruling, then how
can it be neutral? Moreover the BAL MPs urged the speaker to
send a delegation to the rally at Shahbag roundabout to
announce their full support.
Tahrir Square and Shahbag
The BAL dominated media is labelling Shahbag roundabout as
Dhaka's Tahrir square. It is a huge joke. They failed to
find any distinctiveness of Tahrir square. In Tahrir square,
the anti-regime students assemled to dismantle President
Mubarak's autocratic rule. To crash these protesting youths,
President Mubarak sent his army, tanks, and also armed thugs
on the back of horse and camels to kill them. Hundreds of
students were killed by the regime. But what is happening in
Dhaka's Shahbag is totally opposite. The Hasina government
is sending not only verbal blessing but also mobile toilets,
food and drinks, and moreover full police protection from
any attack from the opponents.
The youth in Tahrir squre, brought the down fall of about
more than 3 decades old Mubarak regime. But in Dhaka's
Shabag square, the youths are demanding the prolongation of
the fascist rule of the pro-Indian BAL. Few days ago Inida's
foreign seceretary Ranjan Mathai was in Dhaka. On 10/02/12
he announced that the Indian government appreciate the
Bangladesh government's trial of the war criminals. The
Kolkata's music composers are now composing new songs for
their cultural foot soldiers at the rally. So the India
connection is quite strong as was in 1971. But the youths in
Tahrir square did not have such foreign connection.
In fascism, the ruling party claims the ownership of the
whole country: including its whole state infrastructure,
police, media and judiciary. In Bangladesh, fascism is
ruling with its ugliest form. Eliminating JI and Shibir
activists have become their much proclaimed policy. While
fully patronising the gathering of their own youths in
Shahbag square, it is denying any right of holding rally to
the opponents. They are not allowing them to hold any
meeting in any part of Dhaka. Whenever and wherever the
opposition Jamaat-e-Islami and its student wing initiate any
rally, the police and its ally the RAB (Rapid Action
Battilion) start charging them with bullets, batons and tear
gas. They not only put them behind the bar, but also do
brutal torture. For that, Hasina has made her own Abu
Garebs. More than 150 of JI's women workers are in police
custody for many months.
Hasina is exactly following the footstep of her father
Shaikh Mujib. To establish soviet type one-party autocracy
of BAKSAL, Mujib not only killed democracy, but also killed
more than thirty thousand people to sustain his rule. Mujib
dismantled all opposition newspapers. Hasina is following
the same path. On 13/02/13, Hasina's hooligans burnt the
printing press of the opposition daily Naya Diganta. They
have also threatened to burn their TV installation.
Ironically, BAL and its ally call it democracy.
Recently the daily Jugantar, Dhaka's vernacular newspaper,
published a horrendous report. The sub-urban peripheral part
of Dhaka city has turned into a free killing ground. The
unknown killers dump the dead bodies of the unknown by the
riversides of the surrounding rivers like Buriganga, Turag,
Meghna and Dhaleswari, People are also being killed in the
midst of forest in the nearby Ghazipur district. These
killers are not Hasina's political enemy; hence Hasina and
her police and prosecution team have little time to spend on
such issue. Their time and energy are almost exclusively
spent on hunting down the opposition leaders and their
activists. Except enforcing the brutal ownership over the
country, it now seems that the ruling BAL has no any other
The Guardian reported on February 6: CIA Using Saudi Base
for Drone Assassinations in Yemen Disclosure comes as
architect of programme, John Brennan, prepares for Senate
confirmation hearing to become CIA director.
Chuck Carlson comments: A few Senators are set to ask John
Brennan questions, but not enough I fear. This story in
the Guardian of London raises questions to which there can
be no answer but, "Up here we do whatever we want."
It seems drone attacks have killed at least three American
citizens who happen to have Arab names, including at least
one American born 16 year old. None of the targeted men
was indicted or charged with any crime in the USA. To make
matters worse, the targets were in Yemen, a country where
the USA has diplomatic relations, and it appears no effort
was made to capture them through diplomatic ties before
bombing, nor did the USA have permission to bomb Yemen, so
the drone attacks were just another act of war on a
sovereign country. Now that we have drones there are no
rules, only secret "white papers" written to cover the
guilt of those like Brennan.
John Brennan had authority over the torture programs in
Guantanamo, and in some fifty other countries who tortured
for the USA by proxy. Surprisingly, even Sweden was in on
the torture exchange program answering to John Brennan. It
is easy to see why WikiLeaks Julian Assange does not want
to be extradited to Sweden.
From the Guardian of London: The CIA is secretly using an
airbase in Saudi Arabia to conduct its controversial drone
assassination campaign in neighboring Yemen, according to
reports in the US media.
Neither the Saudi government nor the country's media have
responded to the reports revealing that the drones that
killed the US-born Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and his
son in September 2011 and Said al-Shehri, a senior al-Qaida
commander who died from his injuries last month, were
launched from the unnamed base...Saudi Arabia has previously
publicly denied co-operating with the US to target al-Qaida
in Yemen. Evidence of Saudi involvement risks complicating
its relationship with the government in Sana'a and with
Yemeni tribal leaders who control large parts of the
country...Disclosure of the Saudi co-operation comes the
day before the architect of the drone programme, John
Brennan, appears before the US Senate for a confirmation
hearing to become the CIA director. Read the whole Guardian
CEC returns with a post script A little research reveals how
far the CIA will go to cover up its atrocities, and this
story gets only worse the more we learn. Abdulrahman
Anwar al-Awlaqi (16) (born in Colorado) did not even live
with his father, Anwar Anwar, and was in fact killed in
separate drone raids on an outdoor restaurant in Yemen two
weeks after his father was droned. At first the CIA
pretended the son was 21, and suggested he was a terrorist
too, but it changed its story then the Grandfather, also a
US citizen, released the youth's birth certificate. Six
bodies in the restaurant were pieced together, one
according to the CIA, was its target, an Egyptian alleged
Al-Qaeda journalist. The other four victims were unnamed
locals. The Helfire missile the drone launched did not
leave enough whole body parts to return Abdulrahman to his
mother and Grandfather and his parts were buried in a mass
grave with the others.
John Brennan has demonstrated that he thinks he should hold
power of life and death over anyone he chooses to target.
Torture and assassination without legal authority are now
common in The land of the free and the home of the brave,
where we hold these truths to be self evident, that all men
are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain
unalienable rights, among which are life...
It is unlikely that John Brennan, already a war criminal by
any reasonable measure, will be seriously challenged by
more than a few of those sworn to uphold and defend the
Constitution. Tell someone, how about telling your church?

Muslim Brotherhood Rushed to Take Power: Now its Situation
By Shamim Siddiqi [Long Island, New York.]
I would like to elaborate that the basic shortcoming of
Arab Spring was that it was not for an Islamic order but a
general mass uprising against the *suppressed basic human
rights, *unemployment and *the total dearth of democratic
process in the Arab countries.
The Islamic forces joined it later on. Hence they couldn't
get the upper hand and the core group of this uprising was
and is in the hands of the secular and opportunist
However the Islamic forces have every right to claim their
share in mass uprising and benefit from its benedictions to
some extent not to grab it all at once which has caused a
universal heart burning both in the Arab world and in the
secular countries abroad.
So, they are not the master of the situation. Hence, as a
matter of fact, with the little benefit that they could
muster from this uprising must be capitalized by them for
future greater role. However,unfortunately, the Islamic
forces couldn't understand this equation and now are facing
its dire consequences every where - opposition, accelerated
hate campaign against Islam, clashes, killings and riots
leading to anarchy.
They have no choice but to take it easy, reconcile with the
Batil forces "temporarily", work hard for another four to
five years to get upper hand in the next elections and play
their role more magnanimously towards serving the interests
of the common folk in order to acquaint the bounties of the
Islamic system with the suffering humanity of their
respective country It would have been a fair retreat
with wisdom as Allah commands in Verse # 16 of Surah
Al-Anfal . They failed to do it and hence are suffering
unnecessarily as if they were eager for power.
Kindly try to understand that the Arab Spring now stands
hijacked by Western secular media and diplomacy. Muslim
Movements should have waited for few years more to come in
power. Their political expediency has, unfortunately,
spoiled the trend which has now changed everywhere
Now they have to work hard for another decade or so in the
masses and capture their imagination to live, act and behave
like Muslim within themselves and with others in the
community of nations.
They should have never gone to power this time, waited at
least for one more elections when the bubble of secular
democracy would have subsided, gathered the support of at
least 70 to 80 % of their masses, have done a lot of
worthy work through their support in Assemblies. That
would have paved their way to power automatically.
Now the blood of Br. Mohammad Bouazizi has to wait for
compensation for about a decade or so. Muslim Movements
haven't done their base work upto grass level and build the
requisite massive team of workers/leaders to uphold the
Revolution in their own hands,.
Now they have to wait every where and only Allah knows how
