CNN's Aspersions on Pakistan:
Indian Propaganda on the Mumbai attack: On November 21,
2015: CNN once Again showed its heavily anti-Pakistan video
of the attack on Mumbai.
Interviews with captives to be used for propaganda are
violations of the rights of prisoners. But Fareed Zakaria's
bigotry against Pakistan is so strong that he showed his
heavily slanted story once again, trying desperately to link
it with the attacks in Paris.
At the time of the Mumbai attacks, Dr. Kaukab Siiddique was
interviewed by Dr. Hisham Tillawi of Arizona. Here is a clip
from youtube which would help readers see the background
Br. Athar Ahmad passed away in Montreal on November 11. He
was 71. He was with Br. Kaukab in Lawrence College, a
prestigious school 3 miles from Murree in northwestern
Pakistan. Through many ups and downs, Athar made it to
Canada and contacted Br. Kaukab years later. .
He was an acute activist in Muslim journalism and every now
and then sent articles to New Trend which most people had
missed or ignored. One such gem was a report from the New
York Times which indicated that the vast destruction in the
Westgate Mall in Kenya in 2013 was not caused by al-Shabab
but by the Kenyan military. Here is an excerpt:
"More and more Kenyans believe that those soldiers
methodically cleaned out the mall, and that the barrages of
gunfire ringing out for days were being directed not at the
last of the militants but at safes and padlocks to blast
them open. Some business leaders even question whether the
Kenyan Army deliberately prolonged the crisis by saying that
shooters were still in the building when they were actually
dead, to give themselves extra time to steal. "
Very few people remember this aspect of the Westgate story.
[Only 4 al-Shabab were killed in Westgate and they took
nothing with them.]
May Allah bless Br. Athar and grant him al-Jannah!

Info on Gulen vs Turkey and Paris: Real Causes
On November 20, a four page Jamaat al-Muslimeen document was
given to 100 Muslims after juma' salat at the masjid in the

Most of the Muslims were from Somalia, Sudan, Nigeria,
Bangladesh and the biggest number African American converts
to Islam. The Jamaat document was very well received because
CAIR has no influence here. These were the four pages:

Helping to Feed the Needy In Ethiopia
by Sis. Ashira Na'im
This, our 5th Anniversary (January, 2016) will mark the
fourth year that we have successfully delivered donations
from people in the United States and Canada to the most
needy people in several towns and villages in Ethiopia. As
times get "tougher" for us here in the US and Canada, can
you imagine how difficult it is for people whose land is
drought ridden and the value of their money is further
reduced to 20+birrs for $1 of American money.
It is a joy and a blessing to give, though we may be needy
also, to those who are less fortunate and more in need than
Your contribution of $3 = 60 birrs can feed a family of 4
one time or an individual person 4 times, not a fancy meal
but a nutritional serving. Celebrate the joy of sacrifice
and giving with us at Family Extended Educational Tide and
Jamaat al Muslimeen. Send your donations made payable to
Masjid Jamaat al Muslimeen, 4624 York Road, Baltimore, MD
21212 before the end of December, 2015. Our plan is to begin
our Feeding Program on the ground in Ethiopia in early
January, 2016, inshallah. Count yourself in and may Allah

Our America: Baltimore, Maryland
How to Relate to non-Muslims among whom we live in America?
Br. Kaukab Siddique gave his latest juma khutba at Masjid
Jamaat al-Muslimeen in Baltimore. It's a small masjid, so a
summary of the main points is given here for distribution to
Muslim communities across America.
[Sis. Chekeisha brought important information to the mosque
about Muslim graveyard and janaza facilities so that Muslims
can be buried properly.]
"Allah does not forbid you, with regard to those who
do not fight you nor drive you out from your homes, from
dealing kindly and justly with them, for Allah loves those
who are just." [The Qur'an 60:8]
"One who believes in Allah and the Last Day must be
respectful and generous towards neighbors." [Hadith of
Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, Sahih Bukhari & Sahih Muslim.]
We are not in conflict with anyone on the basis of their
religion. We have the right to practice Islam just as others
have the right to follow their religions.
We do not hate Jews. In fact for hundreds of years,
Muslims protected Jews against their Christian tormentors.
When Jews were expelled from Spain, many of them came to
Muslims for protection. The famous Jewish scholar Maimonides
was supported by a Muslim ruler.
Our opposition to the Jews is that they have taken
Palestine from us by force of arms and they control and
manipulate media, government, education, social norms and
Hollywood against us.
Christians need our help and advice because their
religion does not forbid liquor and gambling and this
situation is destroying their communities.
We oppose all oppressors including those Muslims who are
tyrants and oppressors. We should not be hostile to
non-Muslims, unless they are ;part of the oppressive power
The Prophet, pbuh, has taught us to be kind and caring to
our neighbors. Do not ever become uncaring or harsh towards
Do not break links with relatives who in America are
often non-Muslims. Remember that many non-Muslims are
The future of Muslims in America is linked to Da'wah.
Always give the message of Islam whenever you have a proper
opportunity to do so.
Da'wah begins with the affirmation of our identity.
People should know that we are Muslims: we do not take
liquor or drugs, we do not fornicate or commit adultery and
we consider homosexuality an abomination.
Da'wah does not mean being rude, pushy or aggressive. The
Prophet, pbuh, was always polite.
Many people in America respect Islam. Owing to people
like Malcolm X and the followers of Elijah Muhammad many of
whom have become Sunnis, Islam is known in the Black
community and in parts of the racially diverse communities.
They know we oppose racism & Zionism.
As Muslims it is our duty to speak out against
anti-Islam propaganda. The American Constitution is still
intact and provides freedom of expression. The Prophet,
pbuh, spoke out in much worse conditions.
Only the power structure is against Islam, sometimes
subtly, sometimes openly. This is where we must have the
courage to respond and use our abilities to give a crushing
reply, by peaceful means, to our enemies.
Outright Islam haters, like Pamela Geller and those Jews
who use Hirsi Ali, Salman Rushdi and other trash against us,
must be opposed with the power of eloquence and harsh
riposte short of violence. Don't try to be polite to the
In the general public, people know little about Islam
and oppose us out of ignorance. They are affected by the
media. Hence, knowledge of the media is important so that we
should know their propaganda lines and be able to challenge
them. Ignoring the media will not work. Silence is seen as

jobless. O Allah give us spouses and children who will

liberate Palestine. Ameen, summa ameen.
Christian View of the Attack in Paris
If true, this makes a terrible tragedy even worse.
The Paris Concert Crowd Was Singing 'Kiss The Devil' at the
the terror attacks began.
A few moments away from slaughter, Paris fans at Eagles Of
concert sang songs glorifying the Devil.
With their hands raised high in the air moments before the
Paris fans at the Eagles Of Death Metal concert made the
horns" salute without seemingly a care in the world.
The song that was playing the moment the shooting started
was called 'Kiss
The Devil' and here are some of the lyrics from that
"Kiss The Devil" - by Eagles Of Death Metal
Who'll love the Devil?
Who'll song his song?
Who will love the Devil and his song?
I'll love the Devil
I'll sing his song
I will love the Devil and his song
Who'll love the Devil?
Who'll kiss his tongue?
Who will kiss the Devil on his tongue?
I'll love the Devil
I'll kiss his tongue
I will kiss the Devil on his tongue

FBI continues probe of Gülen-linked schools
DAILY SABAH, ISTANBUL
As the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) continues its
investigation on the school chain linked to the
controversial Turkish cleric Fethullah Gülen for charges of
fraud, there is little transparency in who and just how this
man became a powerhouse in the education sector of the
The investigation is looking into allegations that the
charter school chain diverted state funds it acquired to
individuals and institutions tied with the movement, which
faces terror charges in a number of investigations in
Turkey, where it is formally called the Fethullahist
Terrorist Organization or FETÖ.
The Gülen Movement operates 140 charter schools in 26 states
in the U.S. The Gülen Movement's schools have faced
criticism from different circles, and the FBI previously
raided the Kenilworth Science and Technology Charter School
Another charter school was shut down in 2011 for bribery
charges. Fethullah Gülen, who currently lives in
self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania, leads the Gülen
Movement. He is accused of orchestrating the Dec. 17 coup
attempt and infiltrating Turkish state institutions through
The investigation is likely to boost Turkey's cause in its
fight against the organization accused of overthrowing the
Turkish government. Turkey had already employed an
international law firm to assist in a global investigation
into the activities of the Gülen Movement, which operates a
worldwide network of schools and companies.

Oppression and Exploitation of Women in America plus racism
White Oklahoma Cop Accused of Rape "Blessed" with All-White
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen]
A White Oklahoma City police officer accused of raping women
during traffic stops now gets an all-White jury. Officer
Daniel Holtzclaw, 28, is accused of raping 13 Black females,
one an underage child, during traffic stops. Some of these
White jurors are female, as well, and might be objective and
judge the case fairly. However, many are questioning how a
state, where 20% or more people are of African descent,
could choose an all-White jury. There is a mountain of
evidence against this officer. It is strange that he did not
plead guilty to avoid a conviction with a longer sentence.
Unlike, Islam, the American justice system rewards people
guilty of committing heinous crimes with lenient sentences
simply because they admit to them.
Is justice really being pursued in this case? The trial
began November 2nd. I will keep you informed about the
outcome. It would not be enough for Officer Daniel Holtzclaw
to be convicted, if indeed he is guilty of this disturbing
act. He would need to be given a hefty sentence for
allegedly betraying the trust of the public in the worst
SYMPATHY for Charlie Sheen's HIV+ Status
Charlie Sheen has done some terrible things to women! He
broke a woman's nose in a vindictive rage because she was a
model and used her looks to earn a living. He allegedly shot
John Travolta's current wife, Kelly Preston, he came after
his former wife, Brooke Mueller, with a butcher knife. All
of these violent episodes supposedly occurred when these
women were trying to break up with Sheen.
Yet, Charlie Sheen has remained Hollywood's beloved son.
Sheen has solidified a reputation as someone with an
insatiable appetite for drugs and prostitutes and his
lifestyle may have shortened his life. He admitted in a
Today Show interview with Matt Lauer (11/17/2015) that he is
indeed HIV positive. In spite of his insistence that he told
everyone about his health condition, as soon as he was
diagnosed, there are women coming out of the woodwork
claiming that just is not so. In typical Sheen fashion, he
does not even give an exact date for his HIV diagnosis but,
what difference does that date make?
If he had relations with a women on Dec 11th, 2011 but, was
diagnosed on Dec 12th 2011 these women were still exposed to
this potentially deadly infection! The media is trying to
hoodwink us into believing that the time of diagnosis is
important when, in fact, Sheen could have been carrying the
disease for years! Sheen has stated that the symptoms that
led to his going to a doctor and getting diagnosed were
night sweats and debilitating headaches. Well, one of the
Three Goddesses Sheen lived with, Bree Olson, stated that
Sheen suffered from those same symptoms with her for a year
before his diagnosis!
The terrible thing is that so-called mainstream media has
given him its complete support. It is another sad example of
how racism harms all of society, not just non-Whites. Here
you have a medium that has chosen to vilify Black male
entertainers for their skirmishes with women, some
deservedly so. However, when a rich and famous White man may
have potentially infected dozens of women with HIV, he is
being given the benefit of the doubt! There are many White
women waiting, with baited breath, for their test results as
I write. However, prostitutes, although human, get no
Ironically, his former Two And A half Men co-star, Jenny
McCarthy, who took swipes at Chris Brown and Ray Rice for
their domestic violence issues, now feels betrayed by Sheen.
This same show glorified his promiscuity and love 'em and
leave 'em behavior.
According to a recent NY Post report, Charlie Sheen paid an
extra $10,000 to $15,000 to have sex with
escorts/prostitutes without using a condom, as late as 2010.
Allegedly, he was diagnosed in 2011. If Sheen has infected
any women, his career should be over.

Obituary and last interview.
by Sis. Karin Friedemann
Obituary for Mahmoud Alloz
On October 21, Mahmoud Alloz posted on facebook a photo of
his martyred brother Khalid, who was a media activist killed
in Russian airstrikes. Mahmoud was interviewed by New Trend
on October 23, 2014. That same day in 2015, Mahmoud followed
his brother in martyrdom. In commemoration of his life, I
present our full interview.
Mahmoud Allouz, born in 1992 in Homs, was a journalist and a
former student at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering (He
could not complete an education because of the war). A media
activist from the beginning of the revolution, he was killed
while covering the front lines of the Free Syrian Army,
three days after his brother.
Earlier this year, Mahmoud got a severe head injury from an
Assad barrel bomb. He lay in the hospital wearing a headband
bearing the Shahada. Miraculously, he lived to return to his
media activism, only to be killed by Russia.
Mahmoud Alloz (MA): hi

Homs? I mean geographical situation and regions of the
control of Assad regime and armed opposition and ongoing
KF: no, is there a map?
MA: Mediates the Syrian cities, Homs is the capital of the
Syrian revolution. Strategic importance of the system is
At the beginning of the revolution protests permeated the
city of Homs and its countryside

of baba amer even dominated after it was destroyed, and
then a vigorous campaign on the Homs the old and the failure
of the imposition of the siege which continued to nearly two

The fall of the Assad regime is the demise of the interests
of Iran and Hezbollah from Syria

city of Hama is under the control of the Assad regime, and
