Breaking News: Syrian landslide?
December 12. BBC and other sources report that the pro-West
FSA's military bases on the Turkish border have been
captured by the mujahideen force known as Islamic State in
Iraq & the Levant [ISIS]. All the ware houses containing
non-lethal help received by the FSA from USA and UK have
fallen into the hands of the Islamics. USA and UK have
immediately suspended all non-lethal aid to the Free Syrian
Army. General Idris, the top commander of the FSA has fled

Abdul Qadir was a man of peace. Never picked up a weapon.
Never taught violence.
His "crime" is that he supported a united Pakistan and being
a Bengali he undermined the Hindu idea that Bangladesh
should separate from Pakistan.
There was no Bangladesh at that time so to claim that he
committed crimes against Bangladesh is absurd.
The regime in Dhaka has been trumpeting stories of millions
killed 40 years back and hundreds of thousands of Bengali
women raped. THERE HAS BEEN NO SURVEY which would make such
The propaganda statistics have been borrowed by the regime,
WORD FOR WORD, from a book published by a Zionist Jewish
woman from Brooklyn, New York, named Brownmiller.
The Dhaka regime is under direct Indian influence and is
supported by the US which has signalled it to hold fake
Bangladesh is a Muslim country but most of the Muslims are
conservative and non-political under the influence of
Tablighi Jamaat. The Indian puppet Hasina Wajed supports
Tablighi Jamaat which holds the biggest religious assemblies
in Bangladesh. The pro-Hindu regime knows that by joining
Tablighi Jamaat Muslims become totally
ineffective politically and are cut off from jihad concepts.
By contrast, the 10 million Hindus living in Bangladesh are
well organized and have active links with Calcutta in
India.The border of Bangladesh with India is kept open so
that Bangla raw materials are openly smuggled to Calcutta,
manufactured there into marketable products and then sold
back in Bangladesh. It is classic capitalist exploitation.
Jamaate Islami and Hefajate Islam are peaceful organizations
which preach against violence. Many young people have joined
Jamaate Islami and they hold demonstrations and throw stones
at the police to oppose oppression of Abdul Qadir, Ghulam
Azam and other Jamaate Islami leaders.
In turn the police shoots back and kills protestors. In the
last six months about 200 young Islamic protestors have been
killed. Several hundred unarmed Hefajate Islam members were
killed in ONE NIGHT by security forces after they slept in
a mosque after day long demonstrations in central Dhaka.
The Hindus and secularized Muslims have been aroused to
fever pitch by the regime's daily propaganda that several
million Bengalis were killed and hundreds of thousands of
women were raped by the Pakistani army and its Bengali
Jamaate Islami "collaborators." The propaganda touches the
emotional masses and they are unable to counter it.
The state murder of Abdul Qadir could mean that Bengali
Muslims will have to re-assess their situation under
semi-Hindu rule. India, Israel and the US are the main
gainers in this atrocious execution of Abdul Qadir, a man of
God and a man of peace.
Following the execution of Abdul Qadir, above, a
Jamaat-e-Islami leader, Makbul Ahmed, said in a statement
that "people would take revenge on this killing by
establishing Islam in Bangladesh, which is stained with the
blood of Abdul Quader Mollah." [Photo Associated Press.]

Unpopular Thoughts on Popular Issues: Our greatness and our
by Kaukab Siddique, Phd
As crowds gathered for Mandela's funeral, I was thinking of
the forgetfulness of human beings and the betrayal of
humanity's highest ideals.
Who does not know that part of Mandela's virtue lay in his
fortitude in prison. That's the central fact of his
resistance to Apartheid. And here was President Obama
talking about Mandela and prisons [obliquely referring to
those in Cuba] and completely forgot that America is chock
full of prisons packed with Muslim prisoners who opposed
America's war on Islam. When Obama, the drone master, the
slicky dickie boss of mass surveillance, the greatest friend
of te terrorist entity known as Israel, speaks of freedom
and the human spirit, I want to throw up.
Forget about Obama's talking points and fake morality, look
at the betrayal of Mandela by hos own own party, the ANC.
Perhaps Mandela did not realize that his hopes of
reconciliation and forgiveness would lead to the juggernaut
of cultural imperialism riding through South Africa. There
is no Apartheid in South Africa but have things really
changed? Let me give you three points to think about:
The concentration of wealth and economic production
remains in the hands of the few. The Jews have the diamonds,
The Whites have the gold.The workers in the mines have
better wages but they are still not the owners of the wealth
which belongs to the great majority.
Millions of people live in conditions of poverty which
make Bangladesh look like Switzerland.
Lack of opposition to the West has been cataclysmic for
South Africa's masses. Western values brought random
sexuality and AIDS to so many people that if one adds up the
sick, the dying and the dead, it amounts to genocide.
The tsunami of western cultural imperialism has
destroyed all respect for women. Rape is so prevalent in
South Africa that it is difficult to get correct statistics.
Dare I say it? There cannot be any real change without
revolution. Killing the oppressors is not racism just
because their skins are White. Many Black people were used
as the tools of Apartheid.
[If I haven't lost all my friends by now, let's go on. After
all we don't publish New Trend to be popular,]
There has to be something wrong with this picture: Most of
the oppressors, playboys, actors of the world gathered to
hail a man who spent decades in prison. It's like Spielberg
making a movie Amistad about slavery where he failed to
mention that many of the slave ships were owned by Jews.
Other great people should be mentioned when Mandela is
hailed as great. [The fact is that only Allah is great.]
Have we forgotten Imam Khomeini and the great outpouring of
support for him which overthrew the Shah. And then think of
the tremendous anguish and sorrow of millions of ORDINARY
people when the imam passed away [praying the full salat
even when he was dying].
And then the betrayal. Rouhani making secret deals with the
Great Satan when the imam had taught his people never to
talk with the oppressors.
And then an even greater betrayal, the followers of the
great imam who stood against tyrants, now supporting the
greatest tyrant of our times, Bashar Assad, even sacrificing
their own lives to save the mass murderer. And for what end?
For a narrow sectarian loyalty which Imam Khomeini had
And then think of Mohomed Ali Jinnah, Pakistanis call him
Quaide Azam, the great leader. With the support of millions
of ordinary people, he brought about the emergence of an
Islamic state which both the Hindus and the Brits thought
could never survive.
And then the great betrayal: Pakistan's army mistreated the
people of East Pakistan so much that they decided to break
away and form Bangladesh.
And then the betrayal within the betrayal. The Pakistani
army decided to abandon all the Bengalis who had fought FOR
Pakistan. And then the army did something which no Muslim
army has ever done: Surrendered to the Hindu Indian army.
Now betrayal has become part of the Pakistani way of life.
The army is fighting America's war against the Islamic
resistance in the northern areas. Jinnah had pledged that
the army would never enter those areas.
The glimmer of hope is that Pakistan still has Jamaate
Islami and a number of other Islamic groups which have saved
it from becoming a statelet of the United States of America.

I was a part of the anti-apartheid movement as a young girl
and woman here in the US. My volunteer job was to raise
money by going out on street corners in Kansas City,
Missouri and sell buttons and bumperstickers. Later I did
the same thing in college (in Pine Bluff Arkansas). Some of
my friends, brothers, sisters and cousins had some very
interesting things to say about a girl taking risk like that
several weekends a month. At that time I weighed about 110
lbs. However I never feared for my safety (most young people
don't). My father was not thrilled about what I was doing
however did not stop me. I found out many years later he and
some of his friends were taking turns watching me from about
half a block away disguised with hats over their eyes and
dark glasses. He had some old friends on the local police
force. Oh yeah some brothers from the Nation of Islam would
be on the street selling bean pies and newspapers sometimes.
No one was going to come near me when they were around.
Sometimes I would be out there alone (or I thought I was
My final volunteer experience was when I was a monitor here
in Atlanta for the first democratic election of South Africa
in 1994. I remember talking to many excited South Africans
(many were white). They were glad their country was moving
forward and making progress that would be good for all. I
can remember people driving from all parts of the SE US to
vote in the election here in Atlanta. Many had to stand in
line for up to an hour to vote. However they did not mind.
Many of them as soon as they voted made the four and
sometimes eight hour trips by car back home.
Today as I hear all the great accolades bestowed on my
brother Nelson Mandela I also remember when many people in
this country (especially people in power) did not have such
kind words to say about the man who went from prisoner,
Nobel Peace Prize receipient to president. Dr. Maya Angelou
has dedicated a poem to him. Only as she can spin words to
hit the heart and soul says Mandela day is done.
Our brother is moving on to another place where his soul can
be at rest. He will be remembered by countless millions for
his bravery, courage and determination. He will be
remembered for his grace and his will to see his country a
place where all can live in peace. He will be remembered by
the spirit of the 110 lb. girl from Kansas City, Missouri
that is still in me. The girl who stood in the cold, rain
and sometimes snow to help in the cause that shaped her
activism. He taught me to look past race, color, present
situation and trust my heart and soul to seek justice for
myself and others.
I learned from him not to play it small.
All Over Nigeria, Muslims are being Oppressed and Subjugated
A First time Disclosure of the reality.

Last week, the Supreme Council for Shari'ah in Nigeria has
accused Christians in the country of waging war against
LAGOS - Speaking out their fears for the first time, Muslims
across Nigeria have said they are victims of 'suppression,
blackmail and undeserved intimidations' in their quest to
practice their faith, adding that the recent concerns raised
by the Shari'ah Council of Nigeria was just a tip of the
"The allegations by the Shariah Council are unfortunately
true, and just as have been alleged, we are curious that no

come out to deny it," Shakirat Abdulmajeed of the Criterion,

"We lend our voice on every agency if government concerned

"This is our country and we all want to live in peace but
this must be based on mutual respect for one another.
Muslims should be accorded the needed respect."
Last week, the Supreme Council for Shari'ah in Nigeria has
accused Christians in the country of waging war against
The Council alleged widespread persecution and systemic
exclusion from public offices of the Nigerian Muslims by the
government and security agencies, all of which the council
claimed were acting the script of the Christian Association
of Nigeria (CAN), the body whose leadership faces serial
allegations of always opposing anything Islam or relating to
The CAN rejects this allegation.
In a telephone interview with OnIslam.net, the council
secretary general Dr Datti Ahmad asserted their statements
expressed in the earlier statement.
"We stand by our comprehensive statements on the systematic
persecution of our brothers and sisters, whether in the
south or in the North, and the time has come to speak up for
posterity," he said.
Prodded on the implications of such a comment in a country
as fragile as Nigeria, Dr Ahmad said, "We have waited for
many years to express our reservations and the decision to
do is borne out of our firm belief that unless we make our
voice heard, those responsible for the evils we pointed out
are wont to continue as if nothing is happening."
Executive chairman of the Muslim Public Affairs Centre
(MPAC) Dish Kamor has also agreed with the Shari'ah Council
The Council has "expressed the concerns of most Muslims in
Nigeria and we hope that everyone accused of dealing with
Muslims in unjust manners will retrace their steps for

them as only a tip of the iceberg.

"I had a terrible experience last week when I visited a
general hospital with my pregnant wife. Not only were
everyone (women) made to start singing Christian songs,
anyone who dares object to such practice in the public
facility is chastised for being an extremist or
anti-Christ," Mohammed told OnIslam.net.
"A courageous Muslim woman had challenged the nurses but she
was ignored! Why are the songs not mixed to reflect the
religious diversity, and that is if you must sing at all?

"I am particularly worried about the skewed recruitments in

made almost identical allegations but stopped short of

Oloyede to comment on the Shariah Council's allegations

observations remain valid and said "we hope the authorities
will review such policies that openly discriminate against

Muslims and Christians, who constitute 55 and 40 percent of
Nigeria's 140 million population respectively, have lived in
peace for the most part.
But ethnic and religious tensions have bubbled for years,
fuelled by decades of resentment between indigenous groups,
mostly Christian or animist, who are vying for control of
fertile farmlands with migrants and settlers from the
Hausa-speaking Muslim north.
