Genocide of Muslims in Burma by Buddhists.
Thousands take to the Streets in Karachi to Protest
[via Shah Abdul Hannan and Zaheer Bawany]
KARACHI: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Pakistan Secretary General
Liaquat Baloch has demanded of the global peacebodies to
shun their hypocrisy and take due action against systematic
cleansing of Muslims from Burma.
He was addressing a rally at the Karachi Press Club, here on
Friday. The rally was taken out by Human Rights Network
(HRN), Karachi chapter from the Sindh High Court building to
the Karachi Press Club. A large number of people from all
walks of life turned up to highlight the plights of Muslims
in Myanmar region. Speaking on the occasion, the JI central
leader Liaquat Baloch strictly criticized the United Nations
(UN) for its what he termed criminal silence. He said that
people across the globe are worried on the human rights
violations in Burma but global peace bodies and the
so-called super powers are unable to take any solid step so
as to mitigate the miseries of Muslims in the region. He was
of the view that the bloodshed of Muslims across the world
have become a new normal. He termed the situation alarming
for the global conscience.
The JI leader said that the systematic killing of Muslims,
including women, children and old people, in Myanmar is an
example of the worst brutality in the history of
He said that the criminal silence of the UN has become a
trigger and catalyst for the crimes against humanity in
He was of the view that the leaders of Musilm block in the
world and the Islamic Conference Organization (OIC) need to
play their due role in this regard.
JI Karachi chief Engr. Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman also spoke on
the occasion. In his address, he said that Muslims are being
killed across the entire world.
He said that at a time when the rights of even animals and
birds are being safeguarded, there is no reprieve for
Muslims in Rohingya. He made it clear that he is hopeless of
the Western part of the world in this regard. He said that
it was an obligation for the Muslims block of the world to
ensure human rights for Muslims in Myanmar and the region.
He shed light on the history of the entire region. . The JI
leader also hailed the role of Malaysian and Turkish
governments for their active role in connection with what is
going on in Myanmar. HRN chief Intikhab Alam Soori and
others also addressed the rally. —Agencies
Islam Hater Wilders Convicted in Netherlands but not punished.

When he asked supporters whether they wanted "fewer or more
Moroccans in your city and in the Netherlands", the crowd
shouted back "Fewer! Fewer!" and a smiling Wilders answered:
"We're going to organise that."Wilders said his conviction
was "insanity", adding the three judges who handed down the
ruling were "haters" of his far-right Freedom Party
"Three PVV-hating judges declare Moroccans a race and
convict me and half of the Netherlands. Insane," he wrote in
a tweet shortly after the verdict.
Wilders boycotted most of the trial, but in closing remarks
on November 23 told judges his comments were obviously not
intended as a call to genocide - but rather a reference to
his official party platform.
Migrant men are 'Islamic testosterone bombs'
Prosecutors, who rejected Wilders' assertions that the trial
was politically motivated and an unfair attempt to limit his
right to free speech, had asked that a fine of 5,000 euros,
but no prison sentence, be imposed.
Dutch TV channel RTL news reported Wilders would appeal the
Wilders, who is leading in several polls for the March
elections, said he was not guilty of any wrongdoing.
"Every verdict, acquittal, or conviction will de facto
change nothing," he said in an interview with De Telegraaf
published on Friday.
"I will continue to speak the truth regardless, including
about the Moroccan problem, and no judge, politician or
'terrorist' will stop me."
A previous attempt to prosecute Wilders for anti-Islam
remarks, such as likening the religion to Nazism and calling
for a ban on the Quran, ended in acquittal in 2011.
That process was widely seen as strengthening his reputation
as a defender of freedom of speech and increased his
Al Jazeera's Neave Barker, reporting from Schipol, said the
latest conviction could work in Wilders' favour.
"This could drum up support for some of the issues he is
eager to champion: euro-scepticism, clamping down on
migrants," Barker said. "But what he is convinced he will
continue to do is beat the nationalist drum, so how he plays
this conviction is really yet to be seen."

Believe it or not: American Women Used to be Ashamed of
So there has been Much Improvement!
by Sis. Karin Friedemann
Even though there are still many things to complain about,
as a child who was born in 1970s and lived my childhood
through the "sexual revolution," with only TV comedies or
"Charlie's Angels" to guide me as to how to be a proper
American, I want to comment the present generation on its
improvements. When I was in fifth grade, I remember
experiencing extreme shame and self-loathing because I was
still a virgin. This must mean I was ugly and therefore
worthless, I thought.
Since the girl power movements and movies like "Legally
Blonde," I feel like it is safer to raise a girl child in
America. In my high school, if I were to say out loud, "I am
a Christian and I decided to save my virginity for
marriage," I would have had no friends. I would have been
considered like a mentally ill person and outcast.
Those days are over. And the funny thing is, I have noticed
through my very young online friends that you don't even
have to be Christian or even Muslim to preserve your
virginity these days. Some girls are refusing to have sex
because they are Satanists! Or Witches! The point is that
girls figured it out finally. How punk rock is that.
Families of Police Victims are "bought?"
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen]
New York City - Nowhere in a free, democratic society is
there such a thing as a routine stop!
Thousands of shoppers, pedestrians, and drivers of
African-descent are stopped by law enforcement every day in
the name of routine stops. No crime has been committed. No
evidence of a crime has been committed by these folks yet,
they are stopped and frisked...illegally!
In worse case scenarios, people of African-descent have been
murdered by law enforcement while posing no threat to
anyone's life. According to public cable's Community Cop
Show panelist Noel Leader, who is also a retired NYPD
detective, it is not enough for a police officer to say
he/she was afraid or fearful. This suspect must pose a
serious threat to his/her life. However, in may instances
either the person of African-descent was unarmed or, if
armed, the gun was not drawn.
There have been some well-known cases where unarmed people
of African-descent have been murdered. Now, some of these
families of those slain by law enforcement have begun to
receive out of court settlements. The issue now is where is
the justice for the slain?
The reality is that many of these families, who were so
vociferous about getting justice before, have now become
silent after getting their settlements. It is not a
coincidence that after the families receive their agreed
upon settlements that these police officers are never
brought to trial or they are acquitted.
Here are sample reactions by family members after
settlements have been received:
- DuBose Family of Ohio: Father, Sam DuBose, shot near
University of Cincinatti's college campus while seated in
his car. Officer Tensing, DuBose's killer, lied and said he
was attacked. Now, family says, "We can heal." - $4.85
Other information from the University of Cincinnati
settlement: Sam DuBose's 12 children also receive a free
education and $500,000 in aid from the school. There will be
a memorial for Sam DuBose set up on campus, as well as an
apology from the school president to the family.
Dubose's sister, Terina DuBose-Allen, has said, "We're not
happy, we're not satisfied - those aren't the words," she
said. "The settlement means we're moving forward and we can
heal." Apparently, now, that they have that settlement the
fight for justice has ended?
A date for former campus Officer Ray Tensing's murder trial
has not been set, yet. Will he get convicted now?
- The Scott Family of South Carolina: Walter Scott was shot
in the back stemming from yet another traffic stop, this
time for a broken tail light. - $6.5 million settlement.
Walter Scott's brother, Anthony, had this to say after the
settlement had been reached: "The city of Charleston's
actions have ensured that Walter did not die in vain," he
said. The city sent a message, loud and clear, that this
type of reckless behavior will not be tolerated."
However, the trial of former Officer Michael Slager, Walter
Scott's killer, ended in a mistrial. A lone White juror
stated that no matter what the evidence indicated that he
was not voting guilty. Michael Slager will be tried, again.
But, how come the prosecutor did not use an alternate juror
to replace this rogue?
Usually, I am not of the opinion that one person of
African-descent represents all people of African-descent
however, Michael Greys (Community Cop panelist) suggests
that the Black community could make some progress toward
justice if the families continued to be outspoken for
justice even after they have received their settlements.
Maybe he's right.
But, I believe that each family's response in these murder
cases reveal how weak or strong that particular victim's
family is and unfortunately, in many instances, they show
weakness. Perhaps, families of police shooting victims need
to either start turning down settlement money or accept it
the settlement but, never stop seeking prison time for their
loved one's killers.
It should be noted that these settlements come from the
taxpayer. Neither the police unions nor its officer members
ever pay a dime! The ambulance chasing attorneys
representing these families get paid their percentage from
these settlements, usually ten percent. Once again, African
people's misfortunes, not unlike African enslavement, is
making people rich!

[New Trend Editor]
Letter to All Things Considered (NPR radio)
Dear All Thing Considered-
I often enjoy listening to All Things Considered. But I was
upset by various statements made during the LAKSHMI SINGH
interview with Professor Deborah Lipstadt, specifically
Lipstadt's claims that Holocaust Revisionism (as it is
correctly called) is anti-Semitic.
Although it is standard practice to defame Revisionists as
"anti-Semites who claim the Holocaust is just Jewish
propaganda," that is not what we at CODOH argue. Briefly, we
believe that much of the history taught today has been
influenced by Soviet, British and American wartime
propaganda which exaggerated and exploited real tragedies
for propaganda purposes. This concerns not just Jews but
Slavs, Roma, Jehovah's Witnesses and, in some versions,
Homosexuals. It can be argued that there is considerable
research that supports this point of view. An example is the
vastly revised death figures for Majdanek Camp.
At the Nuremberg Tribunal, Soviet prosecutors presented
evidence that 1,400,000 people were killed at Majdanek
Concentration Camp in Lublin, Poland. Revisionist Historians
have long disputed this figure and the official number has
drifted downward over time; dropping to somewhere around a
250,000 figure by 2004.
In 2000 Revisionist scholars Carlo Mattogno and Jurgen Graff
found that the actual figure was well below 100,000 deaths.
They also pointed out that Jewish inmates were a majority of
the victims of the Camp, comprising 83% of the deaths versus
28% in Soviet propaganda tales.
Revisionist historians everywhere expressed pleasure at the
12/23/05 announcement by the Auschwitz State Museum that
researcher Tomasz Kranz had reviewed the evidence and
concluded that the true death toll of Majdanek from all
causes was 78,000. "The findings [of Kranz] are highly
authoritative," declared Prof. Zygmunt Mańkowski,
chairman of the Majdanek Museum board. Kranz's research
confirmed the figure given by Raul Hilberg and the accuracy
of Revisionist research but was also good news, in a manner
of speaking. While 78,000 victims is still a horrible
tragedy it is a quantum difference from the Nuremberg figure
and the various exaggerated "official" figures given since
It is worth noting that Professor Lipstadt promoted
incorrect and greatly exaggerated figures at the time of the
Irving v. Penguin Trial. We would ask that All Things
Consider correct the smear against Holocaust
You might even interview a Revisionist someday!

As a new American president bent on retaining American jobs
prepares to take office, the Obama administration and the
U.S. defense industry are working on a deal with the Indian
government to build iconic U.S. combat aircraft in
In recent months, Lockheed Martin and Boeing
have made proposals to the Indian government to manufacture
fighter jets — the F-16 Fighting Falcon and the F/A-18
Super Hornet — in India as the country seeks to
modernize its rapidly aging fleet of largely Russian-built
In both cases, the aviation companies would be building
production facilities in India; Lockheed Martin proposes to
move its entire F-16 assembly line from Texas to India,
making India the sole producer of the single-engine combat
The U.S. military is phasing out the F-16 for its own use,
but other countries remain as likely customers.
The proposals have the strong backing of the Obama
administration, which has sought a closer connection with
the Indian military in recent years. Air Force Secretary
Deborah Lee James said she was "optimistic" about the
prospect of a deal after a visit to New Delhi in August, and
Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter is set to return to India
next week, with procurement high atop the list of discussion
But the election of a billionaire businessman focused on
keeping jobs at home, rather than creating them overseas,
has brought a measure of uncertainty to the talks.
