Israeli military terrorists are hunting unarmed Palestinians
in the West Bank.
June 19: In the last few days, Zionist Jewish military has
been terrorizing the unarmed people of the West Bank and
have "arrested" many youths. Two young Palestinian youths
have been murdered by the Jews.
There have been several Israeli air strikes in Gaza too.
Israeli terrorists claim that 3 of their "students"
[soldiers in civvies actually] have been captured by Hamas,
but Hamas is denying it. Some mujahedin group might have
done it. Resistance is the right of occupied people.
Here is the latest situation in Palestine.
Coming out of Palestine today, 6,531 adults and 300 children
ages 6-10, have been taken away to prison in retaliation for
the missing three Israeli settlers. House are being entered
by Israeli soldiers, gardens destroyed, and people can not
travel out of their gated cities...The people rounded up are
from places like Jericho, Jerusalem, Gaza, Ramallah,

Message for Ramadan # 1
From Kaukab Siddique
Are you Ignoring what the Prophet, pbuh, said: Fasting does
not mean Retirement.
"The Prophet, pbuh, said to the poet Hissan, r.a.: "Use
words which defeat the unbelievers [ hajw], Jibreel be with
you!" [Hadith narrated by Bara' bin 'Azib, r.a., in Sahih
Muslim, vol. 2, kitab al-Fadail.]
Hujw is a form of rhetoric and poetry which challenges the
credibility of the oppressors. Islam does not teach peace
with oppressors. In our world oppressors mean Zionists,
imperialists, tyrants, and those who try to behave like the
Pharoah as if they are god.
There is no scope in Islam for a "retirement" kind of
behavior during Ramadan.
In America, hujw is a non-violent way of defeating the
Latest from Syria
ISIS victories in Iraq are changing the situation in Syria.
Latest news till June 18 is that mujahideen are now
advancing into the Qalamoun mountains which Assad's forces
had captured with Hizbullah help.
Even more significantly, mujahideen are again taking the
initiative against Damascus and have made small advances.
About 10,000 Shiite troops from Iraq which had attacked
Aleppo are now being shuttled back to Iraq by air to defend
Baghdad. So many are difficult to replace but Hizbullah is
sending several thousand to replace them.
Assad's air force has joined Iraqi helicopters in bombing
ISIS but with little success.
ISIS has removed the border between Iraq and Syria.

F 16s swoop down and bomb defenseless villages every day.
This is the 4th day [June 19]. The ground forces are closing
in with tanks and heavy artillery supported by helicopter
gunships. The military has announced that in three days its
bombardment has killed 209 "extremists." ["Shiddat pasand"
All roadways in to and out of North Waziristan have been
blocked by the army. Curfew has been imposed and as a result
hundreds of thousands of people are stuck in their homes
with dwindling food supplies.
On June 19 the army announced that ALL the people must leave
North Waziristan within THREE days. According to
international law, this is genocide, the displacement of an
entire population. They will be interrogated and insulted
one by one ["verified" that they are not armed], and then
sent out to be HOMELESS.
Where the homeless people will go is not clear. Thousands
already escaped to the city of Bannu outside Waziristan as
the army approached. There is no place for any more and the
prices of necessities are sky rocketing.
The military is setting up a camp for the evictees but it is
24 kilometers from Bannu which would make it impossible for
the poor people to get food and basic requirements of
This horrific military operation has not been mentioned in
USA's corporate media because it is being carried out by a
military armed and funded by the US.
The moral blindness of the military can be seen in the name
it has given to its operation: "The Blow of the Prophet's,
pbuh, Sword." This is sheer blasphemy for America's rented
army to claim that it is following in the foot steps of the
Prophet, pbuh. The Blasphemy Law should be applied to the
Commander of the army.
The people being killed are the most Islamic people in
Pakistsan, devoted to prayer, fasting, zakat, sacrifice and
Hajj. At least 209 of these "extremists" have been killed.
To use the Prophet's name for such atrocities is certainly
Our America: Latest Khutba in Baltimore, Maryland
Sura al-Balad: The Islamic Message on Slavery
Kingship, Dictatorship, Military Rule, Male Chauvinism,
Zionism, Mass Culture are all forms of Modern Day
On June 20, Br. Kaukab Siddique gave a khutba about Chapter
90 of the Qur'an on slavery. The small mosque in Baltimore,
Maryland was packed, but for a wider audience across
America, here are the main points:
3 Text:s "And what will let you know the path that is steep?
It is to free the slave or to feed in the day of
[The Qur'an 90: 13-14]
"....one who believes, .... who gives his wealth .....to
free the captives." [The Qur'an 2:177]
"There are three kinds of people whose prayers Allah does
not accept: One who leads prayers though people do not like
him, and one who prays when the time for prayers is almost
running out, and one who enslaves a free person." [Hadith of
Muhammad, pbuh, in Sunan of Abu Dawood, kitabus salat.]
Chapter 90, sura Balad, is one of the earliest chapters
revealed in the Qur'an.
It indicates that the Islamic program and objective was
clear right from the beginning.
We believe in the one God, Allah, and all His messengers
culminating in Muhammad, pbuh. We pray, fast, give zakat but
we forget the program the Qur'an brought right from the
beginning. We have the means but we ignore the purpose.
Islam came to end all forms of slavery. Chapter 90
signals, when it seemed impossible, the final victory of
the Prophet, pbuh, and his return to Makka in triumph many
years later. It warns the wealthy arrogant ones.
Its central point is the comparison of Islam to an
uphill, steep, path. It is a religion of struggle, no easy
The central aspect of this message is "to free the slave"
and to feed those down in the dust.
Muslims in America can understand slavery better than
anyone else because this country was built on the
enslavement of people kidnaped from Africa.
The world today does not have that classical form of
physical slavery but it has many other forms of slavery.
Not only was slavery condemned by Islam right from the
beginning, but when the Islamic state emerged in Madinah,
one of the causes for which Muslims were obliged to spend
their wealth was to free captives.
Many Muslims think slavery was permitted in Islam but was
mitigated and reformed. They are led astray owing to two
Slavery in all spheres of life pre-existed the advent of
Muhammad, pbuh. It was this pr-existing slavery which was
gradually reformed out of Muslim society through various
acts of piety and repentance. Zaid, r.a., for instance
became part of the Prophet's family.
Captives. Prisoners of war. These were kept with Muslim
families. If they accepted Islam, they became part of the
Muslim community through marriage.
We never treated prisoners of war as America has done at
Guantanamo Bay. Tying them hand to foot, desecrsting the
Qur'an in front of them when they were helpless. It marks of
the savagery of this nation.
When we become "abd Allah" or "abd ar-Rahman," slaves of
Allah, we are freed from all forms of human slavery.
There is conflict in the Muslim world owing to modern
day forms of slavery:
Tyranny through dictatorship.
Zionism which has turned an entire country into a
concentration camp, calling Palestine "Israel."
Imperialism: The occupation of Muslim countries by
powerful armies from the West and India.
The exploitation and enslavement of women through
objectification and random sex in the West.
There is no law in most American states against human
trafficking. Only when these enslaved women become
prostitutes can they be arrested.
The biggest outburst of human trafficking took place near
the largest "super " this winter.
Under Obamacare [health plan] girls as young as 13 can
get "protection" to carry out random sex acts without their
Only Islam can save America. We must be united and
compassionate towards each other.
Muslims are constantly bickering with each other over
matters of fiqh, If they were to pay attention to the
enemies of Islam among the Zionist Jews, the imperialists,
the racists [Fox TV], the racist Brahmin type Hindus, they
would have no time to fight each other.
Islamic schools agree with each other in all
fundamentals: Hanafi, or Hanbali, or Shafaii, or Maliki or
Jafari or Ahle Hadith, that is Tawheed, Risalat, Akhirat,
Qur'an, qibla, hadith. The quarrels come from fiqh, the
minute details of jurisprudence.
We must be creative in da'wah. A thoughtful friend of
mine living in England used to say: Write the number 90 on
the back of the hands of our children. Tell them it is sura
90, FREE the SLAVE. Or write 90:13 which is the sura and the
Du'a: Pray for the victory of the mujahideen in Syria, Iraq,
Kashmir, northern Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Nigeria,
Mali. Pray for the overthrow of the tyrants and agents
ruling our people in Egypt, Pakistan, Bangladesh. Thank
Allah for the current great victories of Islam in Iraq.

US-British armada occupied and bombed Iraq every day from

Huge numbers were put into prisons like Abu Ghraib which
became symbols of American racism, torture and hostility
towards Islam. US troops used mosques as camping grounds.
But the mujahideen kept fighting. America spent billions of
dollars but couldn't win. More than 4500 of USA's best
troops were killed. What was worse was more than 75000 were
injured, thousands of them with arms and legs blown off and
eyes blinded because their armor saved them from death.

150 Australians fighting in Syria, Iraq - official 18 Jun
2014 Around 150 Australians have fought in support of
radical militants in Syria and Iraq, raising government
fears of a terrorist threat to Australia if the fighters
return home, the foreign minister said on Thursday.
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said she had cancelled a
number of passports on the advice of security agencies in a
bid to reduce the security threat to Australia. She did not
say whether the passports were canceled to prevent
Australians leaving or returning. "Our best estimate is that
there about 150 Australians...who have been or are still

FBI Monitoring Prison Visits of Defense attorney with
Marathon Bombing Suspect.
by Karin Friedemann
A pre-trial hearing for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev took place on June
18, 2014. US Attorney Carmen Ortiz was front row in the
audience. Ortiz has ambitions to be governor and is no doubt
using this terrorism prosecution as a personal career
As they have done in every hearing, defense lawyers
requested the removal of Special Administrative Measures
(SAMs) restrictions on their client, who is being kept in
total lockdown. Lawyers have been complaining that they are
unable to meet with Tsarnaev without the presence of an FBI
officer in the room. During the last hearing on April 24,
Judge O'Toole agreed with the defense that there is no
national security reason why an FBI officer needs to be
present and felt that the prison security should suffice.
Although prosecutors insist that the FBI officer present is
not going to be a witness at the trial, defense attorneys
reported that the FBI officer was taking notes. The judge
refused to remove SAMs and told the government they should
use an out-of-state FBI agent during prison visits. The
Constitutional protection of attorney-client privilege
clearly does not apply especially when the defendant is a
The defense complained about media leaks. Instead of handing
over evidence to the defense, the government is working with
the media. FBI agents were interviewed for TV documentaries
that aired on National Geographic and 60 Minutes
commemorating the one year anniversary of the bombing. These
reports, which conflict each other in many ways, served to
influence the minds of the public regarding guilt, long
before trial. Defense attorneys complained that it is only
on TV that they are learning what the prosecution's case is.
Judge O'Toole admonished the government for participating in
media interviews, calling it "unwise," but refused to
penalize them in any way.
Throughout the proceedings, the defense has been muzzled.
Attorneys have been warned against making any statements to
media or even talking to friends and supporters about the
case. Previously, government prosecutors brought up the
possibility that defense attorneys might pass along messages
from Tsarnaev to his "following" - very similar to the
situation with Shaykh Omar Abdul Rahman's attorney, Lynne
Stewart, who was imprisoned in retaliation for making
statements to the press regarding statements her client
made, except that Tsarnaev is not a political or religious
leader with any following other than people following his
Tsarnaev cannot read any of his mail without a lawyer
present and has been advised not to answer any of his mail.
Likewise, his family cannot speak to the media about their
belief in their son's innocence, lest they be accused of
"passing along messages."
The only good thing coming out of this hearing is that the
government's emotional tactic of accusing Tsarnaev of
"betraying America" was struck down.
"I agree with the defense position that it was unduly
prejudicial," O'Toole said, calling this type of charge
However the prosecution will continue to use "He was
comforting our enemies" as an argument for motive in the
trial. It appears that pushing the issue of Tsarnaev's
interest in Islamic causes will be central to their case.
This would imply that they lack evidence, or that the
evidence they have would not make the government look good.
So far, they have swamped the defense with millions of pages
of inconclusive, grainy photographs and some computer files
showing that Tsarnaev watched jihad-related material on his
laptop, but they have refused to hand over tangible evidence
like the GPS of the vehicle that was used to flee from
police the night Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed.
The prosecution asked the judge to demand that the defense
supply them the name of their witnesses that they would use
to counter the government expert witness' testimony on the
Islamic nature of the Boston Marathon bombing. Presumably
the government "expert witness" will be the laughingstock,
Evan "Saddam is allied with al-Qaeda" Kohlmann, who has
already been testifying in front of Congress about
Tsarnaev's Islamic motivations long before he has even been
found guilty. Defense attorney Judy Clarke argued that this
is not standard practice, and according to the Fifth
Amendment, they are not required to disclose this type of
information to the prosecution at this point in the
proceedings. O'Toole delayed making a decision.
US prosecutors say they will not use statements Tsarnaev
made during his hospital bed FBI interrogation before his
Miranda rights were read, during the guilt/innocence part of
the trial but may bring it up for the sentencing part.
Defense wants the evidence of these statements to be
suppressed. O'Toole delayed the decision for mid-trial.
Tsarnaev's next status hearing is scheduled for August 14.
