Klansman's mask slips: It's Lott!
Likud Party Supporter is Racist like Sharon.

America's politicians have made political correctness into an art form. Below the surface, most of them are zionists, often more Israeli than the Israelis. Many of them, especially those from the South, are racists but will never let on.

So it was a rare moment of illumination when Trent Lott's mask slipped and he revealed himself a racist. Or as the wag says, the klansman's mask slipped and the world saw that it was Lott! In a moment of exuberance at a birthday party for 100 year old Strom Thurmond, Lott chortled that if only the nation had followed Thurmond's segregationist platform, "we" would not have had all these problems. [The "ambiguity" here is that all these problems could refer to the entire African-American struggle including the civil rights movement and voting rights for Lott's Mississipian Black folks.]

It took Lott FOUR DAYS to realize that he had put his foot in his mouth and he duly issued an apology. Republican spin masters, scum like Shawn Hannity of Fox News, Limbaugh etc., went into a spasm of "he didn't mean what he said." The Democrats took the opportunity to use the situation to attack the Republicans. In the frenzy of "pro and con, "the real issue was overlooked: The man closest to President Bush is probably a racist.

No commentator would even touch the fact that Lott is the closest ally of Sharon in the U.S., second only to Bush himself. Sharon's Likud party is racist in Palestine while the Republicans, much more subtly, are the same in America. No one in the major media dares face the fact that U.S. politicians are divided by Israeli politics, with Democrats favoring Israel's keeping what it has while the Republicans support Israel's grabbing even that which it has not.

Thank you Trent Lott! For a split second, you actually permitted us to look into your mind.
Don't you worry! Osama not Trying to Stop Fornication in America!
[Ref: Colbert King on "Read Bin Laden's Letter"]
[This letter was emailed to the Washington Post on December 8, 2002. ]

Dear editor:

Mr. King has played a couple of tricks on his readers in his response to Bin Laden's letter. Palestinian, Arab, African and Islamic opposition to Israel predates Bin Laden. Similarly, the Islamic opposition to "fornication, homosexuality, intoxicants, gambling, and trading with interest" is commonplace in Islamic literature around the world, be it in Morocco or the Philippines. Bin Laden did not discover or invent this opposition.

Are Islamic leaders and scholars saying that Muslims should fight America because "fornication," etc., flourish in America? Definitely not. Even Osama is not saying that. The opposition is to attempts by American-imposed leaders trying to make little Americas out of their countries.

Islamic scholars oppose the imposition of the American way of life on Muslim countries. They are saying: To America its way and to Muslim countries, theirs, to paraphrase the Qur'an.

Mr. King should not feel so threatened. No one is trying to stop fornication in America. It does stand to reason that if America were to choose Muslims as friends, rather than Israel, and send emissaries of peace, instead of aircraft carriers, to the Gulf and Arabia, there would be a real change in American-Islamic relations. Osama would become irrelevant.


Kaukab Siddique, Ph.D.
[Letter received from our Christian friend, Ms. Carolyn in Florida.]

Dr. Siddique,
I was sent this by a Rush Limbaugh fan today. Can you please help me answer this in a couple of paragraphs.

Some people have a real gift for summarizing massive concepts into a few deep words!

Islam versus Christianity
Cal Thomas says, "People are always asking me if there are good leaders in Washington. There are! There are quite a few, but you don't often hear about them because many of them aren't engaging in scandalous or self-serving activities. One such good person is Attorney General John Ashcroft.

I had the pleasure of interviewing him again this week for a column I'm writing. During the interview, Ashcroft said something so profound, I wanted to share it with you. Listen ... this is good.

The attorney general of the United States said, 'Islam is a religion in which God requires you to send your son to die for Him. Christianity is a faith in which God sent His Son to die for you.'"

How much more profound can one get?
If Ashcroft said this, he must be totally ignorant about Islam.
Allah (or the God of all peoples) does not seek or need anyone's sacrifice. The idea that God needs anyone to sacrifice himself or his son to please or propitiate God is debunked by the Qur'an ('koran') itself in the story of Abraham and Ismail. Abraham had a dream that he had been asked by God to sacrifice his son Ismail. Both father and son were willing to accept God's will but when Abraham was about to sacrifice his son, God intervened and stopped the sacrifice. Instead Abraham was commanded to sacrifice a sheep and to feed the hungry.

Thus the Qur'an removed forever the idea that God requires human sacrifice or is pleased by the ultimate acceptance of a father sacrificing his son.

The Palestinian youths who embrace martyrdom to hit the Israeli occupiers of their homeland do so because Islam does not permit its followers to accept slavery and subjugation. The sons of Islam are standing up to the brutal power of Israel to show the world that the arrogance of power will finally be defeated.

In American language, the martyrs are saying: " Give me liberty, or give me death."
Note from Sis. Carolyn:

Thank you for this excellent response to this ignorant man's e-mail-both the writer and sender. I have forwarded it on to Greg who sent it to me. I told him that he should send my e-mail out to everyone that he sent the original note out to.

People are so ignorant. It is nothing but propaganda. Imagine if the same amount of propaganda (only truths) went out about the Jews. They would be finished and this country could get back on its feet.

Thanks again for taking the time to respond to that e-mail. We have to put out fires when we can.
[With thanks to Br. Khalil Abdur Rahman, Greensboro, North Carolina.]

As Salaamu 'Alaikum Wa Eid Mubaarak!


Wa Salaatu Wa Salaamu 'Ala Rasoolul-lah Wa 'Ala Aalihi Wa Sahbihi, Ajmaeen.

To the Muslim Brothers and Sisters who have supported me for the past two years and to all the Muslim Ummah:

I give Praise and Thanks-Giving to Allah for the abundance of Kindness and Generosity He has bestowed on me and my family during the Blessed month of Ramadan.

May Allah accept your and my Fasting and your and my Prayers, during the days and nights of Ramadan, and may Allah bless your Eid. And may Allah accept your and my Charitable deeds.

Let us continue our habits of Fasting, Praying (superogatory observances) and the Charitable deeds throughout the year and into the next year with a renewed Faith and hopes of seeing another Ramadan. Let's continue to raise our level of struggle and increase and maintain our Ibaadah.


More than ever it is vital that we stay informed; to ensure that we get the information and knowledge we need from a reliable source for our insight, analysis, explanations and advice.

Allah's Word is the Truth; the whole Truth and nothing but the Truth. It is Absolute. Man's truth is relative and his intellect becomes artificial if he rejects the Truth of Allah and follows the whispers of the shayateen. When we speak, we should speak from what Allah and His Rasul (pbuh) have said. To do otherwise, would be to run into harm, error and transgression. We should not come off the top of our heads.

We have the Truth (Quran and Sunnah) in our hands, yet we are looking towards others for the truth. The intellect of the disbelievers is flawed and predicated upon falsehood. "Falsehood by its nature will perish. Truth comes to vanquish falsehood. Truth comes to smash the brains of falsehood".

May Allah return this Ummah to its Greatness, Honor and Superiority.

Wa Salam

Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin
