Ayah of the Week

would have believed! Would you then compel mankind against

Deception and the Big Lie Techniques being used Against
Islam and Muslims
by New Trend Contributors and Media Monitors
Muslims hear conspiracy theories but are so impressed by the
media that they do not try to rebut them or even analyze
them. Non-Muslims are busy trying to undermine Muslim unity
via these strongly opinionated propagandists but we don't
even try to talk back.
Here are some stories which have been repeated so often that
they have become part of Muslim thinking. Unbelievers like
Cartalucci, Chedovsky, Fisk, Lamb, Hannity, Wolf Blitzer,
Charlie Rose, and a whole list of slick talkers on National
Public Radio [NPR] bring these up and provide no
Jihad in Afghanistan against the Soviets was a CIA
Not true. The Soviets invaded Afghanistan and the Muslims
fought back. War never takes place in a vacuum. The USA
helped the Muslims. But was the USA thinking and fighting
and sacrificing? Absolutely not! If the Afghans did not have
the desire to resist, weaponry and money would not have
Hamas was "created" by Israel.
Not true. Hamas does not lack the ability to organize,
mobilize and fight back. Survival against a terrorist
entity, Israel, backed by a superpower, USA, requires
tremendous initiative and creativity. These are not people
who be "created" by anyone.
Saddam was a US puppet and USA attacked Iraq to get its
This "oil" story is most popular with anti-Islam
propagandists. Saddam wanted to sell oil at any price. The
US would not let him sell oil at any price. So the opposite
of the "oil" story is true. The real cause of the Iraq war
was Israel's non-acceptance of any Arab state which was not
controlled by the US. Notice the blatant contradiction. If
Saddam was a puppet, why would the US have to attack its own
puppet. Saddam had become Islamic. That was the last straw
for Israel and the US.
Osama bin Laden and Taliban were terrorists and following
9.11 the USA was justified in attacking Afghanistan.
[Not true. Osama bin Laden is not traceable to any message
before 9.11 planning or supporting the attacks. The 19
'mujahideen' carried out a totally autonomous operation with
complete radio silence and the highest level of discipline.
If Osama met any of them or praised them after the attacks,
does not mean that he was the organizer or "mastermind" of
None of the 19 were Afghans. Mullah Umar had called on the
US to bring any evidence against al-Qaida and the case could
be taken to an impartial legal authority. The US refused to
bring any evidence.
ISIS was "created" by the US and Israel.
This story, supported by Shi'ite/Iranian media went quite
far but collapsed when ISIS defeated the US installed
al-Maliki regime in Baghdad and then USA started bombing
ISIS. Understandably, USA will attack any efforts to set up
a Caliphate. This was made clear by both Bush and Obama
administrations much before ISIS came to the fore.
If B1 bombers cannot "eradicate" ISIS, perhaps reason will
replace insanity in America. There is no denying the fact
that Islam is ascendant and bombing by the most powerful air
force in the world will not be able to defeat Islam because
the Qur'an itself has promised victory.
Pro-Iran propagandists insult human intelligence by claimimg
that corrupt governments can "create" Islamic fighters.
These people cannot see mujahideen as the most important
anti-Israel, anti-imperialist force today. My favorite is
this moronic statement from an "oil expert" named
"That refusal combined with the Iran-Iraq-Syria gas pipeline
agreement in 2011 ignited the full-scale Saudi and Qatari
assault on Assad's power, financing al Qaeda terrorists,
recruits of Jihadist fanatics willing to kill Alawite and
Shi'ite "infidels" for $100 a month and a Kalishnikov. The
Washington neo-conservative warhawks in and around the Obama
White House, along with their allies in the right-wing
Netanyahu government, were cheering from the bleachers as
Syria went up in flames after spring 2011."
Thus the Syrian tyrant is absolved of his mass murders and
crimes against humanity, the dignity of the Syrian people's
resistance is shredded and the sacrifices of the mujahideen
as trivialized to the level of "$100 and a Kalashnikov."
[USA after 3 years has not provided any weapons to the
mujahideen in Syria while Russia and Iran have a daily
supply line to Assad. ]

Islam and Mohurram
Islam and Mohurram: Hussain, r.a., Belongs to Islam, not to
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD
After the martyrdom of Usman, r.a., the second greatest
tragedy in the history of Islam was the martyrdom of
Hussain, r.a., the grandson of the Prophet, pbuh, on the
tenth of Mohurram in the year 61 of the hijra,
Although surrounded by the forces of the Governor of Kufa,
Ubaidullah ibn Ziyad, Hussain ibn Ali, r.a., refused to
swear allegiance to the tyrant. Heavily outnumbered,
Hussain, r.a., went down fighting and was slaughtered along
with his 72 male companions.
The killings at a place called Kerbala, in the parched
desert, shocked the Muslim ummah and led to revulsion and
various uprisings which resulted in the revenge killings of
the men who had participated in the massacre of Kerbala.
The memory of Hussain was taken over by a group now known as
Shi'ias. They re-wrote the history of Hussain's brave stand
at Kerbala and used it to attack Islam and to undermine all
the achievements of the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, The
convoluted process of Shi'iasm developed as a sect and then
morphed into a full blown religion which contradicts Islam
at every step. Among the Shi'ites there have been reformers
like Imam Khomeini and Ayatollah al-Khui who tried to bring
Shi'ism closer to Islam and even to integrate it back into
Islam. The efforts have failed. [Sects are prohibited in the
In looking at the original documented sources of the issues
relating to Shi'ism, I have studied Tarikh al-Umam wa
al-Muluk by Abi Ja'afar Muhammad bin Jarir Tabari translated
into Urdu by Syed Haider Ali Tabatabai.
Tabari flourished in an era when the power of the Ummayads
who had persecuted Hussain did not exist. Tabari died in the
year 310 hijri, about 250 years after the martyrdom of
Hussain. His history is recognized as a classic and gives us
the most detailed account of the tragedy enacted at
Here are the facts:
The Shias of Kufa sent petitions signed by thousands of
people urging Hussain, r.a., to come to Kufa [now in Iraq]
so that they could give him their oath of allegiance.
Hussain sent his brother's son Muslim bin Aqueel to Kufa
to investigate the promises of support.
In the meantime, the Governor of Kufa, Ubaidullah ibn
Ziyad appointed by Yazeed, the new Caliph, had found out the
conspiracy to give the caliphate to Hussain, r.a. He
suppressed public opinion by threats and the use of money.
By the time Muslim reached Kufa, the support for Hussain had
fizzled. Muslim was surrounded by supporters of the regime
who handed him over to the Governor who had him
During this time, Hussain had left Makka on his journey
to Kufa anticipating support and a big welcome. On the way,
he learned that not only Muslim bin Aqueel's mission had
failed but that he had been captured and executed as a
Hussain, r.a.,,wanted to go back. In fact his relatives
and various Companions of the Prophet, pbuh, had advised him
not to undertake the journey at all. However, the relatives
of Muslim who were with him insisted that not only the
journey should continue but that the murderers of Muslim
should be brought to justice.
Also inherent in his move forward was the view that no one
worth the name of Muslim would attack the grandson of the
As Hussain and his group approached Kerbala, Ibn Ziyad
sent out his troops and found that Hussain's force was very
small. He decided to humiliate and destroy the dignity and
status of the grandson of the Prophet, pbuh, which he
thought would enhance his dictatorial rule in Kufa.
The forces Ibn Ziyad sent out to crush Hussain, r.a., had
commanders who were very reluctant to harm someone so
beloved of the Prophet, pbuh. One of them, Hur, actually
joined Hussain and gave his life defending him. The next
commander, Umar ibn Sa'ad kept putting off the decision to
attack Hussain, but finally did it. [Many ignorant Shias
confuse Umar bin Sa'ad with the great Caliph Umar, r.a., and
show great hostility to Umar, r.a.]
Other commanders of Ibn Ziyad were eager to attack
Hussain to consolidate their power and Ibn Ziyad's power.
The foremost of these evil men was Shimr ibn Jaushan. Also
among the attacking army were some of the Shias who had
invited Hussain and had assured him of their loyalty.
Hussain did not want any blood to be shed. He told Ibn
Ziyad's commanders that they should give him one of three
choices: Let him return to Makka, let him go to the frontier
to take part in Jihad, or let him go to the Caliph Yazeed to
give him his allegiance. However, Ibn Ziyad, under strong
influence by Shimr, was determined to humiliate Hussain,
r.a., and force him to give his allegiance to himself [Ibn
Ziyad] or to kill him.
Hussain refused to bow down and fought to the last even
as one by one all his adult male fighters were killed. He
was martyred and his head was cut off, along with the heads
of all 72, and sent to Ibn Ziyad, who paraded them along
with the women in Hussain's entourage before sending the
heads and the women to the Caliph in Damascus.
Most modern scholars of including some Shias agree with the
narrative given in these 10 points. However after that they
There is no evidence at all that the Caliph Yazeed
killed Hussain, r.a.
There is no evidence at all that Yazeed ordered the
killing of Hussain, r.a., In fact Tabari's documentation
shows that Yazeed and his entire court was highly disturbed
to know that Hussain and his group had been killed.
Yazeed ordered the best treatment of Zain al-Abedin,
the surviving male, and the women of the Hussaini group. All
their goods, looted by Ibn Ziyad's tribe [according to
tribal custom] were returned to the family on Yazeed's
orders. Zain al-Abedeen and the families were then sent to
Madina under trusted escort [so they be not harassed on the
way] and with many gifts.
In later years Zain al-Abedin gave baya [oath of
allegiance to Yazeed].
Shias made it a habit of abusing and cursing Yazeed,
blaming him for the killings. They also started fabricating
stories about his bad character. [I do not accept him
because he was not a Sunnah oriented ruler, but there are
numerous records which show that Yazeed was a man of
excellent personal character. Imam Ghazali as well as other
reliable scholars have rejected the stories of Yazeed's bad
character, drinking and womanizing, etc.]
The Shias then extended their abuse to Muawiyya, r.a.,
because he was the father of Yazeed. Again the Shiite
absurdity is clear because Muawiyya, r.a. was trusted by the
Prophet, r.a., and even entrusted with the holy task of
writing down the revealed verses of the Qur'an. Hasan, r.a.,
the elder brother of Hussain, r.a.,gave baya [oath of
allegiance] to Muawiyya, r.a. Muawiyya gave generous gifts
and stipends to both Hasan, r.a and Hussain, r.a.
After that the Shias abused the great second Caliph of
Islam, Umar r.a., because he had appointed Muawiyya, r.a.,
as the governor of Syria.
Then the Shias started abusing Abu Bakr, r.a., the
closest friend of the Prophet, pbuh, and the first great
Caliph of Islam. Why? because he was the friend of Umar,
r.a. and did not give Fatima, r.a., the garden of Fadak.
These hostile Shia attitudes led them to the claim that
the Qur'an which Muslims have, compiled by the Caliph Usman,
r,.a., beloved son in law of the Prophet, pbuh, had been
changed by Usman, r.a. and that the "real" Qur'an was with
Ali, r.a., and will be brought by their Mahdi at the end of
Serious abuse has also been directed at the greatest
Islamic military commander Khalid, r.a. because he
outclassed Ali, r.a., and at Abu Huraira, r.a., because he
recorded the most "sunni" hadith and at Ayesha, r.a.,
because she opposed the Caliphate of Ali, r.a.
In sum, Shias have made a religion of their own and their
abusive attitudes have led to warfare between the Shias and
Islamic mujahideen groups.
All these Shia attacks are ongoing and often led by
Ismailis, supporters of the Agha Khan.
Forgotten in all this sectarianism is Imam Hussain, r.a.,
who never taught all this whining and loud mourning which
the Shias carry out every year. Hussain, r.a., stood for
truth and justice. We should be proud of the grandson of the
Prophet, pbuh, and hail his stand against tyranny and family

Pakistan's Military Background - What was done to Swat,
analyzed here, is now Happening in North Waziristan
Taliban: Poor People's Uprising
By Eric Margolis, 17th May 2009
PARIS -- Pakistan finally bowed to Washington's angry
demands last week by unleashing its military against
rebellious Pashtun tribesmen of North-West Frontier Province
(NWFP) -- collectively mislabelled "Taliban" in the West.
The Obama administration had threatened to stop $2 billion
US annual cash payments to bankrupt Pakistan's political and
military leadership and block $6.5 billion future aid,
unless Islamabad sent its soldiers into Pakistan's turbulent
NWFP along the Afghan frontier. The result was a bloodbath:
Some 1,000 "terrorists" killed (read: mostly civilians) and
1.2 million people -- most of Swat's population -- made
refugees. Pakistan's U.S.-rented armed forces have scored a
brilliant victory against their own people. Too bad they
don't do as well in wars against India. Blasting civilians,
however, is much safer and more profitable. Unable to pacify
Afghanistan's Pashtun tribes (a.k.a. Taliban), a deeply
frustrated Washington has begun tearing Pakistan apart in an
effort to end Pashtun resistance in both nations. CIA drone
aircraft have so far killed over 700 Pakistani Pashtun. Only
6% were militants, according to Pakistan's media, the rest
civilians. Pashtun, also improperly called Pathan, are the
world's largest tribal people. Fifteen million live in
Afghanistan, forming half its population. Twenty-six million
live right across the border in Pakistan. Britain's
imperialists divided Pashtun by an artificial border, the
Durand Line (today's Afghan-Pakistan border). Pashtun reject
it. Many Pashtun tribes agreed to join Pakistan in 1947,
provided much of their homeland be autonomous and free of
government troops. Pashtun Swat only joined Pakistan in
1969. As Pakistan's Pashtun increasingly aided Pashtun
resistance in Afghanistan, U.S. drones began attacking them.
Washington forced Islamabad to violate its own constitution
by sending troops into Pashtun lands. The result was the
current explosion of Pashtun anger. I have been to war with
the Pashtun and have seen their legendary courage, strong
sense of honour and determination. They are also hugely
quarrelsome, feuding and prickly. One quickly learns never
to threaten a Pashtun or give him ultimatums. These are the
mountain warriors who defied the U.S. by refusing to hand
over Osama bin Laden because he was a hero of the
anti-Soviet war and their guest. The ancient code of
"Pashtunwali" still guides them: Do not attack Pashtun, do
not cheat them, do not cause them dishonour. To Pashtun,
revenge is sacred. HAM-HANDED Now, Washington's ham-handed
policies and last week's Swat atrocity threaten to ignite
Pakistan's second worst nightmare after invasion by India:
That its 26 million Pashtun will secede and join
Afghanistan's Pashtun to form an independent Pashtun state,
Pashtunistan. This would rend Pakistan asunder, probably
provoke its restive Baluchi tribes to secede and tempt
mighty India to intervene militarily, risking nuclear war
with beleaguered Pakistan. The Pashtun of NWFP have no
intention or capability of moving into Pakistan's other
provinces, Punjab, Sindh and Baluchistan. They just want to
be left alone. Alarms of a "Taliban takeover of Pakistan"
are pure propaganda. Lowland Pakistanis repeatedly have
rejected militant Islamic parties.
Many have little love for Pashtun, whom they regard as
mountain wild men best avoided. Nor are Pakistan's
well-guarded nukes a danger -- at least not yet. Alarms
about Pakistan's nukes come from the same fabricators with
hidden agendas who brought us Saddam Hussein's bogus
THE REAL DANGER The real danger is in the U.S. acting like
an enraged mastodon, trampling Pakistan under foot, and
forcing Islamabad's military to make war on its own people.
Pakistan could end up like U.S.-occupied Iraq, split into
three parts and helpless. If this continues, at some point
patriotic Pakistani soldiers may rebel and shoot the corrupt
generals and politicians on Washington's payroll. Equally
ominous, a poor people's uprising spreading across Pakistan
-- also mislabelled "Taliban" -- threatens a radical
national rebellion reminiscent of India's Naxalite rebels.
As in Iraq, profound ignorance and gung ho military
arrogance drive U.S. Afghan policy. Obama's people have no
understanding what they are getting into in "AfPak." I can
tell them: An unholy mess we will long regret.

Why are Pious Bengali Muslims being cut down by pro-India
Regime in Dhaka?
Death of Prof. Golam Azam in prison & Death Sentence for
Motiur Rahman Nizami
by Dr.Kaukab Siddique
Jamaate Islami Bangladesh is led by pious, virtuous,
politically aware but non-violent Muslims. They are not
fighters and there is no fighting force to defend them. But
they have set standards of morality and decency which have
influenced large numbers of people in Bangldesh,
particularly the educated sections of young people.
I used to correspond with Prof Ghulam Azam before the tragic
events of 1971 which broke up East Pakistan and led to the
emergence of Bangladesh. He was articulate and very rational
in his letters to me. He was a great defender of Pakistan
but when the country fell apart, he wanted the divisions
within the country to subside through compassion and care
for the masses.
Forty years after the tragic breakdown of Pakistan, the
pro-India party in power in Dhaka decided to scapegoat the
Islamic leadership of East Pakistan's Jamaat e Islami and to
target them in such a way that the re.gime's treacherous
relationship with India would be deflected.
How deep is the relationship with India? On Friday, October
31, 2014, the LIGHTS WENT OUT IN ALL OF BANGLADESH. Why?
Because "the high voltage transmission line runs from
Baharampur in West Bengal, India to Bheramara in Kushtia
district in south west Bangladesh." [BBC November 1]
Thus Bangladesh's electricity is controlled by India. A
glitch in the transmission line plunged the country into
India also controls the dams and the water system, flooding
the country when water is not needed and stopping the water
when it is most needed.
Within that context, the Dhaka regime has worked to cut
Bangladesh's Islamic links with Pakistan by attacking and
abusing Jamaate Islami. The Pakistani military defending
East Pakistan surrendered to the Indian army in 1971. It's
officers were accused of atrocities against Bengali
civilians, particularly women. However, a tripartite
agreement between India, Pakistan and newly formed
Bangladesh removed any chance of Pakistani military being
charged with atrocities.
In a great act of betrayal, Pakistan's military did not
inform Jamaate Islami that it was going to surrender. All
the Bengali Muslims who had fought for Pakistan were left at
the mercy of the Hindu minority who swarmed to support the
Bangladesh regime, and at the mercy of secularist and
Communist Bengali Muslims.
After the killings of pro-Pakistanis died down, there was a
period of relative peace during which I visited Bangladesh
sevderal times. No one could think that after 40 years,
Hasina Wajed, the daughter of Bangladesh's separatist
leader, would attack Jamaate Islami.
Thus, through a series of show trials, we see top Islamic
leaders, the most non-violent ones, in the regime's prisons
and being sentenced to death or long prison terms one after
the other. Among them was the top scholar and leader of the
Islamic movement in Bengal, Prof. Golam Azam. There was no
case against him but the regime kept him in jail till he
died there in his 90s.
Now the other top leader of Jamaate Islami Bangladesh,
Motiur Rahman Nizami has been sentenced to death. Absurd
charges were brought against which, even if there had been
any fact in them, could not be ascertained after 40 years.
He too is a vety pious, scholarly, compassionate and aware
Islamic leader who has never hurt anyone, let alone
The Muslims of Bangladesh are quite helpless against the
modernized armed forces constituted of Hindus, secularists
Pakistan has turned its face away from those who loved
Pakistan and are now paying the price.
The only voice which has arisen to challenge Bangladesh on
the field of battle is that of Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri.
Bangladesh is sowing the seeds of the Islamic whirlwind.
Pakistan: Retaliation for Pakistani Air Attacks
October 29: In the Spin Qamar area of Bara, Khyber ,
mujahideen fought a pitched battle with Pakistan's best
troops. Pakistan has admitted "fierce fighting" and that 8
of its troops were killed. [AFP]
The military usually does not admit any losses. This
admission indicates heavy losses. [Owing to its links with
the US, Pakistani military has more than 100,000 troops
occupying areas populated by people devoted to the Islamic
cause, some of them supporting Pak Taliban and
October 23: In the Quetta area, a "militant" group known as
Jundullah tried to kill Maulana Fazlur Rahman, a well known
pro-government religious cleric. The explosion killed 5 of
his supporters and destroyed several vehicles but he
survived inside his bullet proof car. Earlier there was an
attack on Shiites travelling in a bus, 9 of whom were
killed. A veteran unit of the Pakistani military known as
Frontier Corp went out to search for the attackers but was
hit by a bomb explosion which killed 3 of the military and
On October 22, Pakistani jet fighters attacked villages in
North Waziristan killing 25 "suspected" extremists. In the
Data Khel area of North Waziristan, an army unit was hit by
mujahideen with rocket fire. Two of the troops were reported
killed and 5 injured. [Pakistani army had claimed that Datta
Khel was captured three months back.]ctober 24: Near
Al-Arish, northern Sinai, a martyrdom operator hit Egyptian
dictator Sissi's troops gathered at a checkpoint. It was a
direct hit: 31 of the troops were killed in the huge
explosion and 28 injured. The same day, a hit and run attack
killed 3 more Egyptian tropps in Al-Arish itself.
Iraq: In the area of Jurf al-Sakhar, 50 miles south of
Baghdad, a martyrdom operator hit a check point manned by
troops from the US-installed regime and Shi'ite militias.
[From Associated Press 10/27/14]
The huge explosion killed 24 of the Shi'ite militia and
wounded 25. This area was inhabited by Sunnis but the Shiits
drove them out. This is the road to Kerbala, the holiest
shrine of Shi'ism.
October 31: Tribal fighters supporting the US-installed
regime who had been resisting IS west of Baghdad, finally
broke and ran. As they swere fleeing, IS fighters gunned
them down, treportedly killing 85. The regime is claiming
that it was a massacre.
November 1: IS fighters are encircling the strategic Hadith
dam. They are being bombed by the US but they move very
spread put, forcing the US to attack one wagon or truck at a
Syria: IS [Islamic State] fighters have re-taken the Shaar
gas field which a Syrian Assadi force had re-taken when IS
withdrew after slaughtering Assad's troops.
This time IS has issued a video showing 30 of Assad's forces
killed and 5 of his tanks, 2 armored vehicles, several
machine guns and piles of ammunition captured by Islamic
Assad's forces facing serious losses as the war goes on.
As the Islamic counterattack came in over two years, the
regime led by Assad and his Alawites have suffered
tremendous losses. A report from AP indicates that the
Assadi forces killed now number more than 40,400. From one
city alone, the Alawite stronghold of Tartous, on the coast,
more than 4,000 crack Alawite troops have been killed.
The Muslim world is now looking for victory as there is
growing coordination between Al-Nusra and the Islamic State.
[The Shi'ite-Alawite military of Assad has killed more than
200,000 people, mostly civilians, including thousands of
women and children.]
Ferocious Bombing & Atrocity Stories are not stopping Global
Islamic Support for IS
November 1.AFP has published a report from US sources that
16,000 Muslim volunteers from 80 countries have joined the
Islamic State [IS]. The average is 1,000 volunteers coming
every month and the graph is going up, not down, though all
regimes are stopping Muslims from going to IS.
The largest number of volunteers are from the Arab countries
and North Africa. Right at the top for the steady flow of
Islamic volunteers is Tunisia.
Even more shocking is the fact that 2,000 volunteers have
come from Europe, the biggest number from Russia.
From USA, the number is around 100. Under American pressure,
groups like CAIR, ISNA and similar groups in Britain have
declared that IS is not Islamic. Slanderous remarks have
been directed at Khalifa Abu Bakr al_Baghdadi.
Almost EVERY DAY US media, many of them infested by Jews,
spew out scary stories about IS, with almost no evidence. At
least 16,000 people have not only rejected the abuse against
IS but have borne

Exciting Developments in Tsarnaev Case
"The government has no evidence that Tamerlan Tsarnaev
actually participated in the Walham murders."
by Sis. Karin Friedemann [Boston]
On October 20, 2014, Tsarnaev's most recent status
conference hearing took place. Seven demonstrators spoke to
the flock of reporters reminding them about their legal
obligation to promote the presumption of innocence.
"I haven't seen any actual evidence against [the Tsarnaev
brothers]. I mean I've seen circumstantial evidence. Nothing
that actually links them to [the bombings]," stated
demonstrator Arina Montag.
Elena Teyer is the mother in law of Ibrahim Todashev, who
was shot 7 times in his Florida home by Boston FBI in May of
2013. Elena drove for three days, sleeping in her car in
order to be present at this demonstration. Her brave
diligence was noted.
Associated Press' Denise Lavoie reported, "Elena Teyer held
a placard with photos of son-in-law Ibragim Todashev. 'I am
dead because I knew Tsarnaevs. I knew the truth,' the sign
read in part."
"'We are all here for justice,' said Teyer, pointing to
Ibrahim's autopsy photos, explaining what she believes to be
holes and inconsistencies in law enforcement's account of
Todashev's death," reported Morgan Rousseau in the Boston
"They came from Boston to kill my son-in-law. I know that
Elena mentioned to reporters the email between FBI agents
after they killed her daughter's husband. It says, "Good
work. A job well done." It did not say, "Well that turned
uglier than we had planned." The email congratulated the FBI
team for their success! This can only mean that they were
sent from Boston to Orlando to murder the potential
Meanwhile, inside the courthouse, defending attorneys
complained of media leaks. In particular, a recent Newsweek
article by Michelle McPhee, entitled "Twisted Sisters,"
painted a negatively biased picture of the Tsarnaev family.
It was Islamophobic and contained a number of factual
errors. McPhee's article states that she was tipped off by a
high ranking law enforcement official. McPhee is also the
source of other weird stories related to the Boston Marathon
bombing like "the note in the boat."
This is very serious, because the TV version of events is
extremely absent from the actual court proceedings but
heavily weighs the jury's mindset against the defendant.
Four days after the courthouse protest, on October 24,
attorneys filed three very interesting documents:
Tsarnaev's defense team filed their Third Motion for a
Hearing to Address Leaks by Law Enforcement, and a
Memorandum Regarding Scheduling, which addresses government
intimidation of witnesses. The government filed its
opposition to Tsarnaev's Fourth Motion to Compel
Tsarnaev's motion to address leaks "requests that the Court
hold a hearing, and direct government counsel to produce the
supervising law enforcement officers with access to
information about this case including both federal and state
supervising agents or officers - to testify about their
instructions and efforts to investigate and stop
unauthorized communications with news media."
The next illuminating document discusses government
intimidation of witnesses. The defense argues that they are
not legally obligated to disclose the names of Jahar's
friends, as the government demands.
"Defense counsel have described the unusual and severe
obstacles they have
encountered in their efforts to interview and secure
testimony from potential witnesses who knew the defendant,
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, and other members of his family prior to
April 15, 2013... A substantial part of these difficulties
stems from the aggressive, persistent and pervasive law
enforcement presence in the lives of many potential defense
witnesses, and the atmosphere of fear and intimidation that
has necessarily followed. This problem, and the consequent
slowing of the pace of the defense mitigation investigation,
was one of the reasons why defense counsel sought a
continuance of the trial date to September 2015..."
"These same concerns make it impossible for the defense to
voluntarily agree to disclose to the government the names of
non-expert witnesses long before they are to be called.
Given the virtual certainty that the FBI will descend on
each of the non-expert witnesses to interview them (and in
most cases, to re-interview them), the defendant has a
well-founded concern that in the very unusual context of
this case, defense witnesses whose identities are disclosed
to the government prior to trial will quickly cease to be
defense witnesses. For this reason, the defense does not
agree to a witness disclosure requirement that is not
mandated by statute or rule."
In the government's response to defense requests for more
information about Todashev's alleged confession regarding
the triple homicide in 2011, in order to avoid having to
hand over any evidence to the defense, US prosecutors now
"The government has no evidence that Tamerlan Tsarnaev
actually participated in the Walham murders."
J.M. Lawrence, who writes for Bloomberg and the Boston
Globe, tweets: "If US 'has no evidence' Tamerlan murdered 3
in Waltham, was the Todashev 'confession' in FL false? Lots
of unanswered questions."
The Todashev confession news leak also came from, surprise!
McPhee. Government prosecutors mentioned Ibrahim's
confession in an earlier court filing as fact. This is a
common practice in shady politics: leak news report, then
refer to news report in legal case. But if Todashev is now
suddenly considered innocent, why did he write a
blood-stained confession note?
1,000 potential jurors will be screened for Tsarnaev's
trial, District Judge George O'Toole said at Monday's
hearing. The process of picking the 12 jurors and six
alternates who will hear the case against Tsarnaev is
expected to begin on November 3, 2014.

The problem is not Netanyahu; it's the US and Israel's
by Dr Daud Abdullah, Media Monitor; Oct
31,2014 (Selection by Sis. Aamira, Philadelphia)
Not for the first time the Obama administration and the
Israeli government have been hanging out their dirty linen
in public. On the face of it, the Americans are said to be
livid with Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu's illegal
settlement expansion in Jerusalem. The problem, however,
runs much deeper.
While the Israelis try to explain the crisis as simply bad
chemistry between Netanyahu and Obama, at the heart of it is
the 'special relationship' to which the Americans have
irrevocably wedded themselves.
The fault-lines in this curious relationship are never far
below the surface. They are a constant source of tension and
embarrassment for the Americans because they cannot
reconcile their international drum beat for human rights and
democracy with bank-rolling Israel's subjugation of the
So how did the world's dominant super-power find itself in
this mess; where it blindly follows, often against its
proclaimed laws and values, the whims of a client state that
is unapologetically racist?
Last month, Israel's President Reuven Rivlin decried the
increasing wave of racism and violence against Arab Israelis
in the self-styled Jewish state. Addressing the Israeli Bar
Association in occupied Jerusalem he said:
"We are fools to make such irresponsible statements or to
remain silent about them. Hateful calls of 'Death to Arabs'
were not spray-painted on neglected walls in the dead of
night, but spoken loudly and clearly, in the light of
Surely the authors of the American constitution, and the
patriots who died for its independence, would have regarded
support for such indignities as a betrayal of all that they
Ever since Netanyahu announced his plan to construct an
additional 1,060 housing units in Jerusalem, relations with
Washington have gone from bad to worse. It became all too
apparent during Israel's Security Minister Moshe Ya'alon's
recent visit to the US. Despite strenuous efforts, he was
denied meetings with senior US officials.
In public, both sides have been at pains to limit the
damage. While the Israelis claim that the real target of the
snub was not Yaalon per se but Prime Minister Netanyahu, the
Americans, on their part, were equally quick to plaster the
On Wednesday, the Obama administration dutifully distanced
itself from a media report that described Israel's prime
minister in stridently 'undiplomatic' language. The report
by the Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg quoted an unnamed US
official who described Netanyahu as "a chickenshit".
Predictably, the White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest
made the public believe all is well. While admitting that
differences currently exist, he asserted that relations with
Israel are "as strong as ever". Short of making a full-blown
apology, Earnest denied that the unnamed official's views
were indicative of those of the administration.
As an individual, Netanyahu may have appeared spineless; he
has on countless occasions pandered to the demands of the
settlers in order to save his political career. However, on
balance, it must be said that Israeli officials are never
afraid to criticise and even rebuke US officials; whether
they be Secretary of State or the President. On the other
hand, it is the Americans who have demonstrated a penchant
for ambiguity and making statements under the cover of
Ultimately, Israel will be the loser from this current spat.
Americans, it seems, are growing increasingly tired and fed
up with the bizarre relationship in a case of the tail
wagging the dog. It is one that is certainly not good for
their image, and highly detrimental to their international
interests. As it struggles to secure its share of global
markets, investments and resources, America can ill-afford
to be seen as being a purveyor of injustice. For fear of
being seen as guilty by association European countries are
today lining up to recognise the state of Palestine, in
spite of US-Israeli opposition and rhetoric about the peace
Danny Ayalon, the Israeli diplomat and former deputy foreign
minister admitted that the growing crisis in relations with
Washington is threatening Israel's interests. He explained
that: "There is no doubt that there is a very bad thing
happening at the level of relations between Israel and the
US... When the relations become really bad, they would
certainly have significant repercussions, and could shake
the American public opinion out of favour with Israel."
In due course, Benyamin Netanyahu will leave office, but
America's problems with Israel will persist. That is because
his successor will, almost inevitably, be even more extreme
and derisive of international norms. No president after
Obama, however sympathetic, would be able to convince the
American people that they must prop-up a 21st century
colonial enterprise. It runs contrary to their beliefs,
their ethos and their history. Furthermore, with all that is
happening in Syria and Iraq, the last thing Americans want
is to become entangled in a religious war, the type of which
Israel is dragging them towards. Israel's attempt to seize
Al Aqsa Mosque, the third most sacred Muslim site, will lead
to unimaginable consequences that would make Iraq,
Afghanistan and Syria all look like a picnic in the park. An
honest and dispassionate reappraisal of the special
relationship may just prevent that from happening.
Oil, Ebola and Junk Science
by Sis. Aisha, New York
I was watching the NYC public access show: Community Cop
sponsored by 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care. The
host, Noel Leader, brought up an interesting point which was
that no matter which conflicts are occurring in the World
they NEVER seem to disrupt European imperialistic
businesses. The U.S. Oil families are still in control of
the world's oil and the price is going down. He said that
the Jews still control the diamond and goldmines in Africa.
He was stating how the Europeans are always able to sanitize
the areas so that nothing interferes with their
The oil prices have hit an all time low. The claim is that
the oil being used is from American soil.
Junk Science is something to be avoided at all cost. It is
this "science" that fuels fears and serves the purposes of
those "teaching it." I t is based on misinformation. Junk
science teachers either benefit from making money or some
political agenda. There IS an effort to create fear with
these Ebola news reports. However, these fears are caused by
contradictions stated by members of the World Health
Organization (stay calm) and the Centers for Disease Control
(panic). It does not help that Texas Health Presbyterian
Hospital in Dallas did not enforce proper sanitary
conditions for their medical workers. It also a travesty how
Dr. Craig Spencer, the first New York City Ebola case,
outright lied about his whereabouts throughout New York.
These cases made it difficult for Nurse Kaci Hickox , the
defiant nurse politicians were trying to force into
quarantine for 21 days. She was perturbed with the public
and politicians because no one knew the facts surrounding
Ebola, who many health experts state can only be transferred
when bodily fluids interact, just like AIDS. I believe that
Dr. Spencer's case made it worse because he did not have the
symptoms, at first, and then developed them a short time
Scientists, without agendas, deal in facts. There are
scientists who want to educate the public about the facts
regarding disease. However, they're efforts are counteracted
by Junk Scientists and business scientists, such as
pharmaceutical companies testifying before Congress to
promote an agenda that will lead people to buy their pills
or vaccines. Junk Science also fuels the organic food
industry. The lobbyists, not honest scientists, have
In college, I took a course called Science and Technology.
It presented both sides to an argument, such as pesticide
use on produce. There would two arguments: one for pesticide
use and the other against it. The arguments were both based
on science but, political and financial agendas were also
exposed, as well. The more basic science one knows the
better. It allays fears and prevents panic. For instance,
touching blood on a surface is not hygienic but, it is not
life threatening either. A nurse once explained to me that
blood is rendered harmless once exposed to air for more than
ten seconds. Medical experts have stated that allowing blood
to flow from a wound and exposing it to air, as opposed to
bandaging it, will help prevent tetanus.
Understanding the scientific facts and what a great piece of
machinery Allah has created the human body to be will help
combat panic surrounding a disease that has killed only one
person in the entire history of the United States and that
was due to poor, nonchalant medical treatment. I smell a
lawsuit on behalf of Thomas Eric Duncan's family.
Sis. Hadayai, leading Islamic Woman, helps the homeless &
the Needy both in USA & Africa.
Her daily Activity raises
some Jealousy and Questions. Here are her Answers as found
on the FAQ section of the Baitul Salaam Network, Inc.
website (the title of her Organization)
Q. Why do you raise money for children in Africa when so
many children here are in need in the US?
A. We were approached three years ago by a fellow Muslim who
was teaching in a one room Islamic school in Ghana. Most of
the 50 children he was teaching at the time were orphans.
Although the poor village where the school is located (not
near the business centers of the country) agreed to keep the
children when there was a shortage of food of cou...rse the
villagers feed their own children first. Since it cost so
little to help make sure the children can eat, send a few
school supplies, etc. we decided to make the commitment. It
cost $100 US dollars to feed them all of them for two weeks,
in shaa Allah. Please give $2.00-$3.00 per month to help
feed poor, orphaned children, in shaa Allah.
Q. What does the Baitul Salaam Network, Inc. actually
A. Our primary goal is to provide education to the community
about domestic abuse and serve survivors of domestic abuse.
Many women when they leave a violent home literally get
dropped like smelly trash by family, neighbors,,friends and
even religious communities. Due to people just don't
understand what survivors have been through even the ones
who have been physically beaten, raped, financially
Q. Why do you ask for money so much?
A. It takes money to help people put a roof over their head
until they can find a way to start helping themselves
(anywhere from 3 mos to a year). Most of the people who come
to us get assistance for 3-6 months on some level, in shaa
Allah. Many just need a quick hand up and they can move on
from there, in shaa Allah.
Q. Do you write for grants?
A. Yes we do. However this is not a strong skill we have as
an organization. We need money to hire a grant writer. It
takes skill, time and connections. We do get some small
grants from a couple of private family trust and some money
from Verizon Wireless.
Q. How can I help?
A. Please follow my post, go to the Event Page on FB or
inbox me, in shaa Allah. There is a lot of ways you can
assist. Like today I need someone to attend an event at our
office due to I am ill and can't go out. Inbox me if you can
do this, in shaa Allah. I can brief you, etc. It will take
about two hours of your time, in shaa Allah. My request to
you. If my asking for money is a problem please unfriend me.
I am on FB primarily for business purposes. I love that I
have made good friends over the years by being on FB so
much. However this is not my main place for socializing. I
have good social contact in my community (Muslim and
non-Muslim), my family and I get along well and my husband
and I are great friends. Please do not let my posting upset
you or annoy you. Just unfriend me. I will not take it
personally. Really! I have unfriended people who have gotten
upset with me for various reasons and I still love them.
Really I do!
Viewpoint and Analysis
The US War of Ideological Cleansing
by Dr. Firoz Mahboob Kamal, Nov.1, 2014
The US joins al-Assad
The US-led imperialists now have entered the Syria soil and
started a new killing mission to add up more massacres, more
destruction and more blood bath along with the killer regime
of President Bashar al-Assad. The Syrian tyrant has already
killed more than 200 thousands people over the last three
years. Most of the victims are children, women and innocent
civilians. His army has turned hundreds of cities and
villages only to rubbles. The whole country is now a
war-field, al-Assad's army is using barrel bombs, chemical
bombs, missiles and heavy artillery shells to cause more
killing and destruction. The devastating war has now entered
into its 4th year. More than one-third of the population
have been driven out of Syria. So far the USA and its
partners did nothing to stop the ongoing genocide and
destruction. They haven't thrown even a single stone at
al-Assad's army to stop the brutality. Rather, what
al-Assad's army have done to Homs, Hama, Aleppo and other
Syrian cities, the USA is doing the same to Kobani. It is
now using its warships, fighter jets, missiles and thousands
of tons of bombs to bring more deaths and devastation. The
US-led Western countries have diverted the whole focus of
the war from defeating al-Assad's brutal army to destroying
the Islamic State.
However, President Bashar al-Assad's brutality shows some
visible difference from its US brand. The Syrian oil fields,
gas fields and the oil refineries could still survive from
al-Assad's bombing. These are the assets for the common good
for all the Syrian people of all faiths, tribes and
ethnicities. But such assets couldn't survive from the US
savagery. Nor did al-Assad showed luxury of dropping tons of
bombs on a barren mountain in Kobani only to burn a black
flag with the name of Allah Subhana wa Taala and His prophet
(peace be upon him) on it. Bashar al-Assad didn't consider
it a strategic target. But it appeared like a military
instillation in the eyes of the American warlords. So they
dropped tons of bombs on it. The photo of the blown up hill
and flag was shown worldwide by the Western media. This way
they displayed their venom against the name of Allah Subhana
wa Taala and His great prophet (peace be upon him).
However, it is not a new symptom of the American paranoia.
Even before dropping bombs in Kobani, many mosques were
bombed, scores of copies of the holy Qur'an were desecrated
and many Islamic madrasas were burnt by the US occupying
forces in Afghanistan and Iraq. The US has taken all brands
of anti-Islamic parties, thugs and militias as the closest
partners in war against Islam. In Afghanistan, the closest
allies of the US are the man-slaughtering warlords of the
Northern Alliance. In Iraq, they are the throat-slitting
Shia militia. Now in Syria, they have forged strong
partnership with the well-known Marxist-Leninist terrorists.
Long before the war in Syria, Kurdish Marxist-Leninists YPJ
party (People's Protection Units) in Syria and its sister
organisation PKK (Kurdish Workers Party) in Turkey were
known as the terrorist organisation in the US. In Kobani,
the US has dropped huge cache of weapons and foods for the
Marxist-Leninists to save them from eminent defeat.
For the US and its ally, the tyrant al-Assad and his
brutality is not an issue. Saving men and women, protecting
human rights or promoting democracy is not a concern either.
The main issue is the destruction of the Islamic State and
its strategic assets. Each Tomahawk missile costs 1.4
million dollar. Such a high precision missile is used only
to destroy high-value enemy targets like naval warships, air
force base, radar station or other strategic military
installations. The Islamic State possesses none of such
magnitude. But the US has other high-value targets in
Islamic State. These are the cities, townships, villages and
houses that breed resentment against the US-led barbarity in
the Muslim World and produce combative jihadists. Hence,
these stipulated targets are indiscriminately bombed. Till
now (25/10/14), the US warships stationed in the
Mediterranean Sea fired 47 Tomahawk missiles only on one
city of Kobani -along with hundreds of air bombings. With
the same paranoia, Israel dropped thousands of tons of bombs
on Gaza in its recent war.
Monopoly of violence
The US-led coalition of the imperialists wants to monopolise
every tool of violence. They consider it crucial for the
global hegemony. They don't want others -especially the
Islamists to possess even the minimal weapons for their
self-defence. Under the colonial occupation, the natives of
the occupied countries were not allowed to keep even a
shotgun or sword for their own defence. They considered such
minor tools threat to their colonial hegemony. But they
possessed every weapon of mass destruction. The US-led
imperialists want to keep such a status quo. They can invade
and bomb any country they wish and kill as many people as
they like. The US has invaded 7 countries in the 21st
century, and killed millions of innocent men, women and
children in those occupied lands.
In the imperialists' vocabulary, such invasions, bombings
and killings are no crime. Nor do they call such acts as
terrorism. They deny others the right of resistance against
such invasion and killings. Hence, in the US-led camp, the
occupation of Palestine and the ethnic cleansing of its
native people is not a crime. But raising heads against the
occupation and ethnic cleansing is terrorism. As if, full
compliance with the enemy occupation is the only option for
keeping up the survival. Gaza was bombed for more than 50
days to punish its people -only for the non-compliance with
the imposed blockade. Now it is the turn of newly formed
Islamic State. Kobani is the new Gaza. It is smaller than
Gaza and the city is almost vacant. But still it had
residential quarters, houses, shops, roads and a hill with a
black flag with the name of Allah Subhana wa Taala and His
prophet (peace be upon him) on it; therefore high-value
strategic targets for the US bombing campaign. Till now
(25/10/14), the US Air Force has bombed 550 times on this
small city. Here in Kobani the US-led coalition made a
history and a world record. No city of the size of Kobani
was bombed so heavily in the whole human history, even not
during the whole World War period. The bombing mission still
The war of ideological cleansing
The US-led imperialists' war has a clear strategic
objective. It is the ideological cleansing of the world
-especially the Muslim world. They have defeated Soviet
Union; and thus have cleansed the world from communism. Now
the target is Islam with its Qur'anic model of shura,
sharia, khilafa, jijiya, jihad, pan-Islamism and other
socio-political policies. Hence, wherever there is a
resurgence of Islam with such prophetic model of rule, an
imposed war by the West is inevitable. The prophet of Islam
couldn't avoid such a war from the contemporary kuffars; nor
can do avoid the modern days' followers of the prophet. The
kuffars of the modern days are no less intolerant and
inimical against Islam than their ancestors. The present day
enemies of Islam couldn't get any chance to fight wars
against the great prophet of Islam, but they have the
opportunity to fight war against his devout followers and
his Islamic policies. And they don't want to miss that
opportunity. Hence, the US is not concerned about the deaths
and destruction in the cities of Homs, Hama, Aleppo and
other Syrian cities, but worried about the fall Kobani under
The USA is the worst ideological state on earth. Its
ideology is global imperialism twined with liberal
capitalism and the culture of consumerism and
pleasure-seeking hedonism. The US-led west is happy with the
Islam of Saudi kings, Gulf sheikhs, Egyptian or Pakistani
generals and other Muslim secularists. The imperialists are
even happy to take them as partners in their war against
Islam. But they consider the jihadi Islamists inspired by
Qur'an as the greatest threat to their global hegemony. The
US-led coalition wants to populate the global village with
the people of single ideology, single economy and the single
culture. Like pharaoh, Nimrod and other tyrants of the human
history, they too are deadly against an ideological and
cultural plurality. Even the Christian tyrant Constantine
-the Byzantine Roman Emperor didn't believe in such
pluralism either. He forcefully converted his almost every
citizen to Christianity. So non-Christian in his empire was
almost non-existent. The same happened after the Christian
takeover of Spain from the Muslims. The religious, cultural
and ethnic plurality that existed for about 7 hundred years'
Muslim rule in Spain was stampeded by the Christian tyrants.
The Western imperialists too want to take down the same
route. They want others to melt down into their ideological
cum cultural pot. This is why the French Parliament put a
ban on wearing a head scarf; and hijab is banned in many
European countries. In colonial era, to attain such an
ideological and cultural hegemony, they carried out massive
ethnic cleansing in America, Australia, New Zealand and many
other parts of the world. Only this way, the British, the
French and the Spanish people could make space for their own
people and expand their empires in the newly discovered
lands. But such ethnic cleansing in thickly populated modern
world is unachievable. Therefore, they have taken down the
route of ideological cleansing. Hence, they are support the
secularist tyrants' killing mission against Islamists in the
Muslim countries. This is why, they gleefully welcomed
General Sisi's military coup against the elected Islamist
President Dr Morsi in Egypt. For the same reason, they
welcomed the coup against the winning Islamists in Algeria.
As the part of the same strategy, they are also forcing the
governments of the Muslim countries on restricting Qur'anic
teachings in schools and imposing ban on books on jihad and
other basics of Islam. For winning the ideological war
against Islam, the US-led coalition thinks it crucial.
The ideological colonies
After the colonial occupation, establishing ideological cum
cultural colonies in the newly occupied land received the
highest priority. For that, along with ethnic cleansing, the
ideological cleansing through wholesale ideological
conversion of the native people was considered the most
popular tool in the imperialists' camps. The political
policies, meticulous social engineering and the education
system worked as powerful tools to meet that end. The
imperialists failed to produce significant number of
religious converts from the Muslims; but got huge number of
ideological converts. The ideological cleansing was so huge
that Islam with its pure Qur'anic vision of khilafa, sharia,
shura, jihad, pan-Islamic brotherhood and politico-social
policies couldn't survive in those occupied Muslim lands.
Islam could survive only as a code of some prayer rituals
and non-political sufi dogmas. Such a policy of cultural and
ideological conversion through education was revealed by T.B
Macaulay, a well-known British imperialist and educational
interventionist for India in his speech in British
parliament on 2nd February 1835. He stated, "We must at
present do our best to form a class who may be interpreters
between us and the millions whom we govern, --a class of
persons Indian in blood and colour, but English in tastes,
in opinions, in morals and in intellect" Even now, the
British imperialists must be rejoicing the monumental
success of such an educational policy in India. The project
was so much successful that the products of the educational
factories not only serve as the interpreters -as Mr Macaulay
wished but also shed their blood for the British Empire.
Even man like Mr Gandhi recruited soldiers for the British
Army for the First World War.
The colonial occupation has formally ended; but the damaging
legacy of the colonial rule still survives. The ideological
cum cultural colonies of the imperialists still flourish in
former colonies. The educational industries too, that were
established to produce the ideological converts still
function, rather with more massive production lines to feed
the same objectives. The bureaucratic quarters, the army
cantonments and the judicial enclaves in all big cities of
the Muslim countries are indeed the ideological islands of
the imperialists. These ideological converts living in those
islands showed their ideological and cultural
incompatibilities with the traditional Islamists of their
own country. Nor could they reconcile with the political
aspirations of the Muslim majority. As a result, each Muslim
country has been divided into a country of two nations: the
nation of Islamists and the nation of non-Islamic converts.
As a result, unending ideological war has erupted in almost
all Muslim lands that turned into blood-letting civil war in
The greatest terrorist
The Western imperialists fight wars, occupy lands and shed
bloods -not only for political dominance and economic
exploitation, but also for ideological and cultural
hegemony. Whatever ideology stands against them becomes a
war target. Before the collapse of Soviet Union, the target
was communism. Now it is Islam. For the cause of its global
hegemony, the USA doesn't respect the national boundary of
any other country. It does not bother to take any permission
from the UN to invade a country either. Rather the UN needs
to endorse each and every US invasions for its own survival.
Both physically and politically, the UN itself stands
helpless hostage on the US soil. Therefore, like its
previous invasion, the current bombing campaign in Syria
also gets the full UN endorsement and support. Even Mr Ban
Ki-moon -the UN Secretary General openly campaigned in
support of such an US war mission. If use of violence for
any political, ideological or financial purpose is
terrorism, then who can be the greatest terrorist on earth
than the US? For political arm-twisting, so far, who has
used more weapons of mass destruction than the US? The US
and its partners exercise the military and economic might to
redraw the political map of others -as done in the Middle
East, but don't allow others to decide their own future
-even through democratic means. So it engineered coup
against the democratic Prime Minister Sharif Musaddeq of
Iran in 1953, against Allende of Chile in 1973, against the
Islamists of Algeria in 1991 and against President Morsi of
Egypt in 2013.
The snake changes only its skin; but never retires from the
biting habit. Nor does it stop the production of poisonous
venom -the lethal weapon. The same is true with the
imperialists. So massacre of more than 70 million people in
two World Wars couldn't quench the thirst of these
imperialists for more killings. So they repeatedly went on
the same killing mission even after the most catastrophic
two World Wars. The people of Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq
have already tasted their barbarity. In Vietnam, Napalm
bombs were dropped even on forests -on the pretext of
destroying the safe havens of the native fighters. As a
result, huge plant and animal habitation had to taste the US
barbarity. Thousands of children, women and unarmed
civilians were scorched to death with fire bombs. Now it is
the turn of the Syrian people to taste the same cruelty. In
Syria, innocent men, women and children are not the only
targets; equally innocent fields, hills, mountains, forests,
roads and highways also seem to be the strategic
What Israel did in Gaza, the US is doing the same in its own
Gaza -the Islamic State; rather with more ferocity. Israel
didn't use Tomahawk missile against civilian population. But
the US is repeatedly using it. Its bomber planes are now
carpet bombing the cities and villages of the Islamic State.
Unlike Israel, the US is not alone in its killing mission.
It has many equally brutal partners. The British and the
French have already joined the bombing campaign; and more
than 60 countries have also expressed their wish to support
the campaign. Some bombers from the neighbouring Muslim
countries like Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Arab Emirates have
also joined the mission. The ongoing US bombing campaign in
Kobani has indeed fully diverted the direction of the whole
war efforts in Syria. It is no more a war against the
genocidal al-Assad. Now it is against the Islamic State.
The war of ideas
The US and its partners want to cleanse the world of ideas
that are against their own world view and political
ambition. But idea doesn't live in army cantonment or
residential areas; it grows only in people's heart and mind.
Hence in ideological war, bombing on military installations
or residences doesn't work. Rather such bombing enhances
only its bumper growth. The US war in Afghanistan, Iraq and
Syria gives a strong testimony to it. After the US bombings
and killings in those countries, the Islamists got many fold
increase; not only in those countries, rather globally. Such
a rapid growth of Islamists also happened after the Soviet
bombing in Afghanistan. To add its own disgrace, the US has
taken the same route. So, thousands of bombs and missiles
are now being dropped on Syria's residential areas to kill
more civilians. The Israeli Army did that in Gaza too. The
US Army has been doing the same in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen,
Somalia and Pakistan for more than a decade. The Islamic
State has no cantonment, no naval ship and no visible
military installation. But it has many people with combative
Islamic ideas, hence turn potential target for US bombings.
The war of ideas thus turns more genocidal. But Israeli
bombings couldn't finish Hamas in Gaza. The US bombing in
Afghanistan couldn't finish Taleban in Afghanistan either.
Can they end the Islamists in Syria?
No peaceful option
The Islamists have never been given a peaceful option. The
history repeatedly reveals that truth. The Muslims once
became the number one World Power and the most dominant
civilisation force on earth. For that, they had to advance
every inch by sacrificing their life. More than 70% of the
companions had to die for the cause. In every segment of
history and in every land, the evil forces always used the
extreme form of violence against the Divine truth. Even the
greatest sons of mankind, like Hazrat Ibrahim (blessing of
Allah Subhana wa Taala be on him), Hazrat Musa (blessing of
Allah Subhana wa Taala be on him), Hazrat Isa (blessing of
Allah Subhana wa Taala be on him) and Muhammad (peace be
upon him) were not given a peaceful option either. They had
to suffer the most barbaric persecution. Prophet Ibrahim
(blessing of Allah SWT be on him) was thrown into fire.
Hazrat Musa (blessing of Allah SWT be on him) has been
chased by Pharaoh and his army onto the sea. Hazrat Isa
(blessing of Allah SWT be on him) was put on the cross. The
last prophet of Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala Muhammad (peace be
upon him) also suffered the severest persecution; the tribal
leaders of Makka made a final plan to kill him.
The old enemies of Islam have died; but a coalition of new
enemies has emerged with the same venom against Islam and
the Islamists. Hence the same war still continues. Only the
names and brands of weapons have changed, but not the aim
and enmity. The US President Obama, the British Prime
Minister Cameron and the French President Hollande have
joined the same rank to launch a full scale war against the
Islamists. Their war is not only against Islamic State or
Islamic Khilafa, but also against the Islamists all-over the
world. They are not ready to reconcile with the political,
cultural and ideological objectives of Islam. Whoever wants
the full practice of Islam -as was practised by the prophet
Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his great companions with
full implementation of sharia, shura, khalifa, jihad and
other Islamic fundamentals are labelled terrorist; hence
Terrorism with a different meaning
No part of the world is so much infested with brutal tyrants
as is the case of Middle East. The Saudi tyrants can behead
or imprison as number of people as they like. There exists
no accountability. The Egyptian courts too can hang as many
people as they wish. Even one day is enough for an Egyptian
judge to prosecute hundreds of people in a room and declare
their death sentences. The Egyptian army can also kill
thousands of innocent people in a single night -as they
killed in Raba al-Adabiya in Cairo in August 2013. There
need not answer anyone for such crimes. Such massive
terrorising acts of these tyrants never receive any label of
terrorism by the US-led imperialists. Rather they display
great love for them. They consider them the strategic
partners to sustain their dominance over oil-reach Middle
East. Their help is also needed for ensuring Israel's long
term security. These US-led imperialists are not only
complacent with their brutalities, but also take every step
to ensure their full protection. For that, the US and its
partners not only keep ever-presence of their warships, but
also have established large number of military bases in the
The US President Barak Hussein Obama, in his speech in the
UN on 24th September, labelled the Islamic State a "nexus of
barbarity". The question: what about his own barbarity? The
US drones, missiles and fighter jets are killing children,
women and unarmed civilians in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan,
Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and many other countries of the
world. Israeli Army killed 2130 people in its recent 50
days' war in Gaza and destroyed more than twenty thousand
houses and hundreds of schools. What was the US action?
Wasn't it a crime to adopt a policy of inaction against such
Israeli genocide? It appears from the speeches of the
Western leaders, as if no killing took place before the
creation of Islamic khilafa! How many civilians are killed
by the Islamic State fighters? How many civilians are
evicted by them? How many houses have been destroyed by the
Islamists? After beheading of one British citizen, the
British Prime Minister Cameron called Baghdadi "terrorist
khalifa". What about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu who killed more than two thousands in Gaza? What
about George W Bush and Tony Blair? Are they not responsible
for about one million civilian deaths and huge destruction
because of the war in Afghanistan and Iraq? Why "terrorist
Netanyahu" and "terrorist Bush" do not get any mention in Mr
In speeches of US-led imperialists, as well as in the
vocabulary of the tyrant kings, sultans, sheikhs and
generals, terrorism has a different meaning. The war for
ending occupation, the struggle for removing tyrant killers
and the fight for basic human rights have always been
labelled as terrorist acts by the tyrants and the
imperialist occupiers. Hence Mr Gandhi of India, Mr Nelson
Mandela of South Africa and many others of the Third World
countries had to go to the prisons for protesting against
the colonial occupation. For the same reason, al-Assad of
Syria, the Saudi Kings, the military coup leaders of Egypt
and the Sheiks of the Gulf countries called his opponents as
terrorist. Any effort towards implementing sharia is
labelled as terrorism, too. Since the mission is the same,
the US-led imperialists are quite happy to take these proven
killers as the partners in their killing mission against the
The US President Barak Hussein Obama, the UK Prime Minister
David Cameron and many other Western leaders didn't hide
their own thoughts vis-à-vis Islamic khilafa. They have
already declared that they are not ready to tolerate Islamic
khilafa in any part of the world. Mr Obama has made a pledge
that the US will "contain, degrade and destroy" Islamic
State. Mr Cameron called Islamic state a "terrorist
caliphate". He also claimed that inaction against Islamic
State's barbarism can't be a policy. With an implied support
for the US-led war, the Roman Catholic Pope too urged that
something must be done to protect the Christian minorities
and Yazeedis from the Islamists. Mr Obama, Mr Cameron, and
the Catholic Pope never pleaded for such a war against the
genocidal regime of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria or
other killer regimes of the Middle East. Neither did they
say such words against the Israeli atrocities in Gaza.
The US-led imperialists have their own reasons for virulent
and violent opposition against an Islamic state. They are
not ignorant of historical implication and connotation of
khilafa. Khilafa doesn't come alone. It also brings
pan-Islamic Muslim brotherhood, sharia, jihad, Islamic
education, Islamic social policies and a global vision of
liberation of the people from yoke of evil forces. It works
as a hub of Muslim unity and inspires Muslims to emergence
as a unified global power. Such an Islamic state brings an
end not only to enemy hegemony but also to non-Islamic
values, culture, laws and judiciary in Muslim lands. The
Western imperialist are not ready to accept such a colossal
end of their own ideology. Moreover, they are not ready to
give such a dignified space for the Muslims either. Hence,
they are now desperate to crush Islam as the political
ideology and dismantle Islamic State in its nascent
The war against Allah Subhana Wa Taala
The imperialist's war is not only against the Muslims or the
Islamists. It is also against Allah Subhana wa Taala.
Establishing Islamic state or caliphate following the
prophet's tradition is a Divine obligation. If this
obligation is not fulfilled, many other obligations can't be
practised either. About 70-80% of Allah's command can only
be practised if Muslims could live in an Islamic state. Fish
can survive only in water; Muslims too needs a fully Islamic
state to live with full Islam. He can't properly punish even
a killer or a criminal in a non-Islamic state. Islamic state
or caliphate brings other blessings too. It is the quick way
of adding strength to the Muslim Ummah. In the first 13
years of the Islam in Makka, the greatest prophet (peace be
upon him) of Islam with his unprecedented knowledge,
character and dawa skills -supported by many miracles,
couldn't convert even 3 hundred people. But in the following
20 years under the Islamic caliphate, Muslims emerged as the
number one world power. Islamic caliphate worked as the most
powerful civilizational force on earth. The Muslims can't
win a war, neither can do any moral or politico-cultural
reconstruction, nor can do any effective dawa works without
the institutional support of the Islamic khalifa. In fact,
the failures of the world's 1.3 billion squarely lie on the
absence of Islamic khalifa. Hence, mosques, madrasas,
political parties, charity organisations and sufi khanqas
were never considered as the substitute of khelafa. Khelaf's
substitute is khilafa itself.
Allah Subhana Wa Taala has a clear announcement for those
who do not follow His sharia in making judicial judgement.
He called them kafir, jalem and fasik -(Sura Ma'ida, Verse
44 -47). Therefore, noncompliance with sharia takes away a
man's Muslim identity; and dumps him with a tag of
non-Muslimness. Can any amount of salah (prayer), fasting,
haj or charity cover up such a kufr of noncompliance?
Compliance with sharia is indeed the key marker of
muslimness of a believer. Any form of noncompliance with
sharia is kufr -therefore route to the hellfire. Therefore,
a true believer can never take a non-sharia path. But how
can sharia be practised without an Islamic State? No one can
take the sharia law in his own hand, it needs state
apparatus. Hence Islamic State is an indispensable
necessity. The prophet of Islam needed it. The companions of
the prophet and the later Muslims needed it, too. But none
of the current 57 Muslim countries claim to be the follower
of prophetic method of governance; neither do they practice
sharia in making judicial judgment. The so-called Muslim
states have indeed made it very difficult to live like a
full Muslim. The kuffar enemies of Islam want to keep such
So, the need for a full sharia-compliant Islamic state is
most urgent and most crucial. Any further delay will only
expedite Muslims' peril and earn more curses from Allah
Subhana Wa Taala. Establishment of such an Islamic state is
indeed the first step towards breaking the status quo of
failures. It is also a big step towards becoming full Muslim
for the believers. The Muslims can survive without further
economic or scientific progress, but can't wish to pass a
single day without a desire and commitment for an Islamic
state. But all the evil forces of the world want to deprive
the Muslims from fulfilling such a crucial religious need
with their full military might. The whole conceptual
framework for an aggressive war against the nascent Islamic
State is indeed based on such a devilish ploy.
