A Few Editorial Thoughts: GERMANY CAN HELP US LEARN

In the case of Iraq, we can learn from the allied victory over Germany in 1945. The allies wanted to cover up the fact that they had destroyed German cities and killed huge numbers of German civilians (100,000 in Dresden in ONE NIGHT alone). So they decided to use the demonization process to accuse Hitler of the "Holocaust of the Jews." True, terrible things had happened to the Jews, but they had happened to many other peoples as well.

The "holocaust" was a perfect diversion from what the allies themselves had done. The German leaders who were arrested soon caught on to what the allied captors wanted to hear. Most of them tried to save their own lives by blaming Hitler for all that the allies wanted to blame him for. The Nuremburg War Crimes tribunal judged Germans as war criminals while thousands of civilians killed in U.S-British bombing lay under the rubble of Nuremburg. [Almost the whole city had been reduced to rubble.]

Stalin, his hands dripping with the blood of millions, was the ally of the British and the U.S. It served Stalin's purpose to make war criminals out of Germans.

IN THE CASE of IRAQ, the U.S. did NOT demand that there be an impartial inquiry into human rights violations while Saddam was in power and could answer right back. Now all kinds of graves are being dug up. In the process, the one million Iraqi children who died of sanctions will be forgotten, as will thousands of Iraqis killed in U.S. bombings in 1991 and 2003.
IMAM JAMIL al-AMIN's CAUSE: Faced with Conspiracy and Oppression
Possible Seminars in New York, Baltimore, Atlanta and Chicago

At the behest of Imam Khalil Abdur-Rahman (from North Carolina), there is need to bring the cause of Imam Jamil al-Amin back into the lime light. Imam Jamil was moved from Atlanta to the hick town of Reidsville and is being kept locked up in solitary confinement 23 hours a day.

A bogus case was implemented to convict Imam Jamil. He has accused the government of conspiracy and oppression. Although action was taken against him at the state level, there are signs of federal involvement in his persecution.

Imam Jamil al-Amin is the most important Islamic leader in America today, based on his independence from the power structure and his practice of the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him). He is the only leader willing to go to prison and not bow down to the oppressors.

Jamaat al-Muslimeen supporters are urged to talk to Muslim communities and mosques to organize seminars on the struggle of Imam Jamil al-Amin. Efforts should be made in Atlanta, New York City, Brooklyn, Baltimore and Chicago where Jamaat has representatives.

[Activists like Br. Hodari Ali in Washington, D.C. are urged to lend their support to this effort.]

For information on the Imam's case, please contact Jamaat al-Muslimeen's Secretary General, Sis. Motisola M. Abdallah at:

Imam Khalil Abdur-Rahman, who organizes the International Committee in defense of Imam Jamil, has informed New Trend that some key personalities very close to Imam Jamil would be willing to speak at our seminars.
