Breaking News: Syria: Assad Losing Slowly but Steadily.
Till September 15: Loay al-Mikdad, a Free Syrian Army
spokesman, told the AP that they have not received any
weapons from the U.S. although they expect some in the near
future. [Thus even the group which is secular and very
friendly to the US has not been helped - Ed.]
September 12: Mujahideen captured the village of Imm
al-Lokas in the southern region of Quneitra near Syria's
Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
Mujahideen also captured several army posts in the area in
heavy fighting that caused casualties on both sides.[Thus
the border with Jordan and Israeli occupied territory is
increasingly in Islamic hands.] [Assad has never fought
against Israeli occupation. ed.]
In the northeast, Syrian Kurds are divided: Some are with
the Islamic groups and some with the seculars. Serious
fighting is going on. There are oil wells in the area.
Setback for Assad: The suburbs of Damascus where Assad's
forces used chemical weapons on August 21 and killed 1600
civilians including more than 450 children, are still in the
hands of Islamic forces. Incredible fortitude by the
mujahideen is making it clear that if the mujahideen had
more heavy weapons, Damascus would fall.
In the village of Maaloula, one hour's drive northeast of
Damascus, fighting between a handful of mujahideen and a
large column of Assad's mobile forces is continuing
[September 13.] Mujahideen are withdrawing to save the
village from destruction by Assad's men. His artillery
carries out indiscriminate shelling of areas captured by the
Islamics. Regime propaganda claimed that a church had been
destroyed but a Free Syrian Army officer went to Maaloula
and had himself photographed with the church. It is
untouched and intact.

Terry Jones, Pastor who wanted to burn Qur'ans, Arrested
with Kerosene Soaked Qur'ans.
On September 11, 2013, the crazy Christian pastor Terry
Jones, who wanted to burn Qur'ans in retaliation for the
9.11 attacks was arrested in Polk County, Florida. He was on
his way to a park with 2998 kerosene soaked Qur'ans in his
vehicle when the police got him.
Even his math was wrong. He had included the 19 hijackers
among the Americans he wanted to remember.
After years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the global
revulsion against the video insulting Prophet Muhammad,
pbuh, America has finally learned that Muslims will not
tolerate blasphemy and desecration of the Prophet, pbuh, and
the Qur'an. Islam is a living religion.
America's nine million Muslims are quite helpless as they
have been heavily infiltrated by pro-government Muslim
cliques. But it's a different world out there. America's
Muslims are the weakest link in the Muslim ummah. Its a
small world and America knows that war on Islam will not
succeed [inshallah]. Researchers say that less than 5 % of
the world's 1.8 billion Muslims joined al-Qaida though many
more admired Osama bin Laden. If the blasphemies and
desecrations had continued, there would have been a
landslide in favor of al-Qaida and related groups. Good
thinking President Obama!

Tremendous Propaganda Campaign Against Islamic Fighters
opposing Assad's tyranny in Syria.
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD
Ever since Obama's August 31 speech in which he began his
delaying tactics to save Assad, a concerted propaganda
campaign has been going on in TV channels across America to
dehumanize and demonize the Islamic fighters opposing Assad.
On September 5, it looked like all the TV channels received
a video depicting Islamic fighters executing 7 of Assad's
troops. It went on hour after hour and then day after day.
Gradually however it came out that the video is from April
and the group shown doing the shooting is very tiny and
certainly does not represent Jabhat al-Nusra or Islamic
State of Iraq & the Levant.. Then the New York Times, which
started this abuse, admitted, very quietly, that actually
the video is from 2012. [It looks like a fake video because
the actual shooting is not shown. Zionist media can produce
such fabrications when the need arises.]
Then on September 11, CNN brought a man named Maajid Nawaz,
speaking British English but claiming to be a reformed
"extremist." He proclaimed that al-Qaida would use chemical
weapons. Then he became more confident and claimed that
there is NO war against Islam. And more people have been
killed by Taliban than anyone else. He also revealed that he
went to Pakistan and held a meeting in Swat in support of
Malala and "education." [If true, then he has top security
clearance from the Paki military.]
These Zionists have such a monopoly of the media that they
can say anything they want without being challenged. The
anti-Al-Qaida propaganda is almost daily if not every hour.
It's meant to make the tyrant Assad look like a choir boy.
Salman Rushdie's great friend Charlie Rose interviewed
Bashar al-Assad and refused to challenge the lies Assad was
Now we have Putin writing in the New York Times and being
quoted against Obama. Putin has also latched on to the one
atrocity story from Syria in which a mujahid cut out and
chewed the heart of am Alawite terrorist.
Ask yourself dear reader: Assad's late model tanks, planes,
hit squads and troops have killed about 100,000 Muslims [UN
figures]. Have you seen any of these atrocities on American
TV? Even one?
I rest my case.
Islamic Teachings Against Slavery are Relevant today.
Tyranny, dictatorship, kingship, Male dominance are Modern
On September 13, Dr. Kaukab Siddique gave the juma khutba at
Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen in Baltimore. The small mosque
was packed with worshippers. After the juma, a young woman
came and embraced Islam. While giving her the shahada, Br.
Kaukab taught that Allah is not the name of a person sitting
somewhere "up there." Allah is the Creator and Sustainer of
the entire universe. Allah sent messengers like Abraham,
Moses and Jesus. The last of them was Muhammad, pbuh, with
whom Islam was perfected through the Qur'an.
Sis. Ashira and Sis. Nadrat were asked to help the new
sister with her spiritual development.
The following are the main points of the khutba:
"Allah the Exalted says: On the Day of Judgment, I will be
the Enemy of three kinds of people: One who uses My name to
make a pledge but then breaks the pledge. Two, the person
who enslaves a free being and uses his "price." Third, the
person who hires a worker but does not pay him his just
wages." [Hadithe Qudsi from Muhammad, pbuh, in Sahih
Bukhari, kitab al-buyu, segment on "Sin of selling a free
"The messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be on
him, said: Allah does does not accept the prayers of three
kinds of people: One who becomes imam of prayers although
people do not like him, secondly one who comes to prayer
when the time for prayer is just about running out, thirdly
one who enslaves a free man or woman." [Hadith in Sunan of
Abu Dawud, kitab -us-salat.]
Muslims often think that they are not worshipping idols
today, so they are okay. Sura al-Baqarah teaches us that we
may be worshipping our "cow." Unless we slaughter our "cow"
our focus will not be on God [Allah].
Muslims often think that hadith were "for those days" and
they ignore what the hadith says against slavery.
Remember that Muhammad, pbuh, is our leader today through
his hadith as he was when he was alive.
These are very strong hadith. [quoted above] If we
endorse slavery of any kind, our prayers will not be
The forms of slavery have changed but the essence is
still there: the control of the lives of men and women by
tyrants, dictators and kings.
We accept this kind of slavery for decades. Look at
Egypt, Syria, Tunisia, Libya, Yemen etc.
Then we wonder why are we suffering so much. The answer
is that by accepting all these modern forms of slavery, we
are violating the mission and the message of Muhammad, pbuh.
Dictatorships are falling but the price is very high because
we accepted these "pharaohs" for so long.
Look at the condition of women. We often treat them like
property, as the idol worshippers used to do. Our sisters
are crying out for justice and equality. Male tyranny is a
form if slavery.
Malcolm X [al-Hajj Malik Shabazz] taught us that slavery
is continuing in America. He distinguished between the House
"Negro" [who loves his "massa" even more than himself], and
the field "Negro" who has no sympathy for the slave master.
Slavery now is MENTAL, not chains and whips,
We love our "masters," be they in the White House and the
Pentagon or in our own homes.
Don't ever think that because we pray and fast, Allah
will accept us, though we support modern slavery. No: the
very essence of Islam is to : FREE the slave. [chapter 90,
Remember Ayat al-Kursi: Allah's power is over the entire
universe. Tremble with the thought that Allah Himself will
be our Enemy on the Day of Judgment if we enslave free
people and eat up the profit we make from the deals we

Letter: Iran and US on the same side again?
by Ather Mohiuddin [Canada]
Iran and the US may not agree on much, particularly when it
comes to Syria. But despite deep strategic differences, Iran
sees its interests as aligned with the US....
Also Iran's official line is the same as Russia....
This was same case when Iran facilitated US and NATO
invasion and occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan and handed
over Iraq to Shia puppet government.

Los Angeles Time's report
U.S. shares raw intelligence data with Israel, leaked
By Ken Dilanian
September 11, 2013, 4:42 p.m.
WASHINGTON — The National Security Agency routinely shares
raw intelligence data with Israel that probably includes
sensitive information about Americans, according to the
latest top-secret document leaked by former intelligence
contractor Edward Snowden.
The 2009 document, a memorandum of understanding between the
NSA and its Israeli counterpart, says the U.S. government
regularly hands over intercepted communications that have
not first been reviewed by U.S. analysts and therefore may
contain phone calls and emails of American citizens.
The agreement allows for the possibility that intercepts
given to Israel might include the communications of U.S.
government officials, in which case Israel is supposed to
destroy them immediately. Other data on U.S. citizens who
aren't in the government, however, can be kept by Israel for
up to a year, according to the document, first published
Wednesday by Britain's Guardian newspaper.
NSA officials declined to answer questions but issued a
statement saying, "Whenever we share intelligence
information, we comply with all applicable rules, including
the rules to protect U.S. person information."
It's no secret that the U.S. and Israel cooperate closely
against intelligence targets of mutual interest, such as
Syria and Iran. But providing Israel unfiltered electronic
intelligence feeds raises questions about why American
officials would trust Israel to respect the privacy of U.S.
The practice also raises the specter of Israel using U.S.
intelligence to carry out operations of which the U.S.
disapproves. The Obama administration has condemned, for
example, the assassinations of several Iranian nuclear
scientists that many analysts believe Israel had a hand
"One of the biggest concerns in all intelligence-sharing
relationships is that the partner would use the data to take
action that would result in killing somebody or doing
something outside the scope of what our government might
consider appropriate," said a former senior NSA official,
who, like others interviewed, asked not to be named in
discussing classified information. "The worry is they might
go off and bomb somebody and assassinate somebody."
A second former senior U.S. intelligence official said the
sort of intercepts shared with Israel would focus on
communications in the Middle East and would not include many
Americans. But almost any eavesdropping anywhere in the
world tends to capture at least some American communication,
the former official said. The former officials requested
anonymity because of the sensitivity of discussing
The implications are unsettling, said Jameel Jaffer, deputy
legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union. "You
can imagine a scenario in which somebody tries to get on a
plane and is told by some foreign airline, 'We have you on a
list,'" or you try to get a visa and you're told,
'Unfortunately we can't give you one,'" he said.
The agreement requires Israel to consult an NSA liaison
officer when it comes across data on Americans, and to
adhere to U.S. rules for handling U.S. citizen information
that are designed to protect privacy, a process known as
"minimization." That would include, for example, blacking
out the names of any Americans in intelligence reports
derived from the intercepts. But it's unclear how that
requirement is monitored or enforced because the agreement
expressly states that it is not legally binding.
The sharing of raw intercepts with Israel is particularly
notable because U.S. officials say Israel aggressively seeks
to spy on the U.S. government, unlike Britain, Canada,
Australia and New Zealand, allies who are part of a
long-standing agreement to share signals intelligence with
the United States.
Jonathan Pollard, a former U.S. naval intelligence analyst,
is serving a life sentence in prison after being caught
spying for Israel in the 1980s. Secret U.S. intelligence
budget documents revealed last month by Snowden list Israel
as one of the most aggressive countries seeking to spy on
the U.S., alongside China, Russia, Iran and Cuba.
The Guardian quoted from other NSA documents it did not
publish in which U.S. officials expressed concern about the
intelligence-sharing arrangement, citing their worry about
"One of NSA's biggest threats is actually from friendly
intelligence services, like Israel," an unnamed NSA official
is quoted as writing in one document. "There are parameters
on what NSA shares with them, but the exchange is so robust,
we sometimes share more than we intended."
The reason that risks are taken with Israel, the second
former official said, is because Israel and the U.S. have
many mutual foreign policy interests, and Israel in some
cases has greater expertise in Middle Eastern languages and
"Managing the intel-sharing relationship is always kind of a
quid pro quo," the official said. "One country may have
access to certain communications that we can't otherwise
get, so there are decisions made at fairly high levels
whether or not it's worth it to share."
Why do Muslims love Muhammad, pbuh.
by Abida Rahmani [new contributor from Kentucky] Part II
Prophet, pbuh, suffered a lot in spreading Allah's message
that was given to him.
Anas (Allah be pleased with him) narrated from prophet
(pbuh] "In the path of Allah I have been daunted and
threatened more than anyone else. Once I had to pass thirty
days and nights in such a dreadful condition that Bilal and
I had nothing that any living being would eat, except what
little Bilal had kept under his arm."(Maariful Hadith,
Once when Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) asked
Prophet, pbuh, that did he suffer more than the battle of
Uhud? To which he replied that the hardest day was when he
accompanied with Zaid bin Haritha went to Taif to preach
oneness of Allah and to invite them to Islam. The chiefs
instigated the local rowdies for mischief while he was
preaching. They pelted him with stones so heavily that he
began to bleed profusely. The blood clotted in his shoes,
after receiving so many injuries he fainted and fell down.
Zaid (ra) lifted him on his back and brought him outside the
town in a canyon and sprinkled some water on him. Allah
sent angels of torment who asked the prophet "if you say
then these bad people will be crushed between these two
hills." The Prophet replied "do not do this, I pray for
their guidance and I believe that they will accept Allah's
message. (Bukhari, Muslim
The unbelievers persecuted the Holy Prophet, pbuh, his
companions and followers incessantly for twenty three years.
They harassed, tortured and compelled them to move out from
Mekkah to Madina. In Madina they attacked and fought several
battles with the Muslims. But when Mekkah was conquered and
these worst enemies of Islam were completely at the mercy of
Prophet [pbuh]: At this moment just a nod from him would
have rolled their heads in the dust. Instead he asked them,
"Do you know how I am going to deal with you today?" They
replied in a suppressed tone, "O truthful and trustworthy
one! You are a noble brother and the son of a noble brother.
We never found you merciless." The Prophet peace be on him,
said, " I say the same words to you today which Yusaf Said
to his brother- no reproach is on you this day: Go, I set
you all free."
Prophet, pbuh, preached the message of Allah to every one,
every where, day and night with all his abilities and
strength. He was the greatest preacher, leader, Commander-in
-chief, statesman, companion, friend, caretaker, father,
relative and husband.
Hasan (may Allah be pleased with him) said on the authority
of his father Ali, r.a., that Prophet [pbuh] divided his
time in three parts in his home.
Social obligations to his family
Taking some rest
Then he would further divide his own share of time between
himself and for other people utilizing most of it in the
matters related to the Ummah. During this time he discussed
matters of common interest with chosen companions. Those
companions would spread out his words to other believers. He
did not hold back any thing from the people; neither the
religious commands of Allah nor his own deeds (sunnah).
During these hours he would receive different type of
people, try to solve their problems, answer their questions;
sometimes he received ambassadors from rulers and believers
of other faiths such as Jews and Christians. We may call it
a Grand or General Assembly of Mohammad (pbuh) with all the
simplicity and grandeur of Allah . In these assemblies
strategies were finalized for battles, donations collected,
believers were inspired for sacrifices of life and wealth,
Quran's commands delivered and envoys sent to other rulers
for accepting Islam.
He would ask the people who were present there to pass on
what they had learned to those who were not present.
The Greatest Commander-in-Chief
"And make ready against them all you can of power, including
steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery) to
threaten the enemy of Allâh and your enemy, and others
besides whom, you may not know but whom Allâh does know. And
whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allâh shall be
repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly."
Holy Prophet (pbuh) planned with minimum resources available
at that time to fight the battles against the enemies of
Islam. Anas (RA) narrated from Prophet (saw )"I have been
favored with superiority in four things, generosity, valor,
manly vigor and victory over opponents."
On the occasion of battle of Badr companions were greatly
disturbed with limited armor and numbers against the
enemy.But Prophet (pbuh] was calm and composed on his
position riding on a horse. Abu Sufyan tried to attack him.
He calmly got down prayed to Allah for his help and
victory,"O Allah, if this small group of your believer is
defeated and killed. Then there would be no one to uphold
your name. O Allah we need your help and victory". With
Allah's guidance he picked up a handful of dust and threw it
at the enemy and chanted," I am prophet of Allah, it is
true. I am a descendant of Abdul Muttalib". On that day no
one was as fearless, brave and daring as he was.
Ibn Umar (r.a) I have seen no one more courageous,
energetic, generous and possessing highest merits than the
Holy Prophet (pbuh) on the day of battle of Badar. We
regularly took refuge by his side and any one who kept close
to him was considered to be brave, since he was so close to
The Companions (RA) contributed generously all their
belongings in the way of Allah when the call was made. This
generosity occurred at every battle and the greatest example
is battle of Tabook. Abu baker (RA) brought all his
belongings, Omar (RA) half, Osman(RA) brought 100 camels
loaded with belongings and a companion worked whole night in
a Jew's field and earned a few dates. He was standing quiet
at a corner, when Prophet noticed him; he asked him to come
forward and asked him to put his hard earned dates over all
During the battle of Ahzab the whole battle was so
strategically planned with minimum resources that the
Prophet (saw) 's army contained the enemies for so many
days. Later on the enemies got frustrated and went away. In
that battle when a companion showed that due to food
shortage he had tied a brick to press his stomach, Prophet
pbuh showed him that he had tied two bricks against his
stomach. During all the battles he was always at the fore
front, fighting with valor, planning, courage and bravery.
Why is the OTHER side of Pasover being hidden.
Exposing the Mind Control of the Holocaust People

12 September 2013
Dear Mr. Foxman:
With regard to the recent killings by chemical weapon s in
Syria, either by the Syrian State or others, you have been
quoted as saying: "Our people have been exterminated by the
use of gas. We cannot stand by without a reaction when we
see gas being used to kill others."
I am going to take it as a given that you would argue that
it is wrong to "exterminate" others, no matter what weapon
is used to accomplish the deed.
This suggests a question of some significance that, so far
as I know, you have not addressed.
Each year during Passover, while the rescue of the Jews from
Egypt is celebrated, the other half of the story is
routinely ignored. The half that tells us how God
"exterminated" all the first-born of the Egyptians on that
dreadful night when he "passed over" the doors of the Jews.
Countless thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands, of
first-born Egyptian babies, children, youths, mothers-all
the first-born of all the mothers and fathers throughout the
land of Egypt--murdered.
While Passover has been celebrated for some 3,000 years, as
it was this year, I am unaware that you, Mr. Foxman, have
ever expressed any note of sympathy, or expressed any other
reaction, to the horrors of what the Egyptian mothers and
their first-born, who in almost all cases were innocent of
all wrong-doing, suffered on that terrible night of mass
extermination. Am I wrong about this?
Does it make all the difference to you, Mr. Foxman, that the
"weapon" used to exterminate the Egyptian first-born was not
"gas?" Please tell me what I'm missing here.
