Race Concepts: Potent Weapons used by Oppressors
[With a comment on Cosby's view of African-Americans.]

From Dr. Abdul Alim Shabazz

"...the whole concept of race is political and is built upon a false foundation (skin color/tone) and that its primary use via well-orchestrated propaganda is to divide the non so-called white populations of the planet against themselves so that they can be more easily exploited, oppressed, suppressed, killed, murdered, enslaved, segregated, discriminated against, colonized, raped, dehumanized, duped, scorned, continually abused, controlled, and kept in a subservient/inferior position using long-range miseducation generated perpetually in a viscious well-established unconscionable world-wide system of inequitable education constantly being fed by the monolithically dominated capitalist media. Cobsy's remarks simply reflect his white supremacist miseducation. It is almost unthinkable that he would have made similar remarks to so-called white parents and guardians whose children, imitating so-called black children, are dressing and behaving similarly. Carter G Woodson is right: "When you control a man's thinking you do not have to worry about his actions." Therefore, let me humbly recommend that we all read or reread Woodson's The Miseducation of the Negro" and DuBois' Ten Essays on Education.

Job Corps is a federally funded residential program for economically and educationally deprived young people. Students entered the program with a variety of social problems and backgrounds. I counseled both male and female students between the ages of sixteen and twenty-three. Issues and concerns facing the young people that came to Job Corps were coping skills, academic performance, peer pressure, sexual abuse, bereavement, substance abuse, education and vocational goals. Part of my job as a counselor was to train the students in positive decision -making skills, and the social skills needed to achieve skills suitable for the workplace and to achieve personal success.

During my time at the Job Corps, I developed a program to aid Students in improving their reading skills. The Students overall tended to be poor readers and in need of a great deal of motivation to read.

Two African-American Muslims arrested: "Al-Qaida" Charges: Drama of the Absurd

On May 30, 2005 the government arrested two African American Muslims, Sabir from Florida and Shah from New York. The government is accusing them of Al-Qaida links and of taking an oath of fealty to Osama bin Laden himself.

A closer look at the charges indicates that this is another entrapment. The government story is so absurd that one can hope that if any sensible judge looks at the case, he'll throw it out.

One of the accused, we are told, was planning to teach karate to Al-Qaida. [Don't laugh!] The other one is reported to have said that he will go overseas and treat injured members of Al-Qaida. [He is a doctor.]

The story about the taped oath to support Osama creates the impression that this is an entrapment. Hidden in the hearts of most Muslims is love of Osama and if you can make them talk long enough, you can always obtain a fragment of conversation which shows sympathy for him. Then you can arrest them and use the fragment as "evidence."

Prof. Sami Al-Arian Facing Grave Injustice:
Hadassah Lining Up "Witnesses" To Testify Against Him.

May 26, 2005

Earlier this week, Dr. Sami Al-Arian was denied a change of venue in his case, despite providing strong evidence that 10 years of biased, inflammatory media coverage by the Tampa Tribune has prejudiced potential jurors in Florida—and Tampa in particular. Surveys in the Tampa Bay area have shown a widespread bias against Dr. Al-Arian and Palestinians in general.

Obviously biased jurors such as a woman who said she is a fundraiser for Hadassah (The Women's Zionist Organization for America), were kept in the jury pool despite defense objections. Defense lawyers ultimately had to use one of their strikes to remove the woman from the pool. A recent article in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz validated their concerns: It revealed that Hadassah will provide housing for 100 Israelis who will testify for the prosecution in the trial.

Jurors' inability to be fair was especially clear during three days of questioning last week, when the overwhelming majority of those questioned made biased and overtly racist statements against Dr. Al-Arian, Muslims and Palestinians. Last fall, candidates in a Florida senate campaign also smeared Dr. Al-Arian's name, discussing his case without giving him the presumption of innocence. Many potential jurors said the inflammatory campaign ads featuring Dr. Al-Arian helped form their opinions on the case. Indeed, if there were ever a case in which a change of venue is warranted, this is it.

About the decision to deny a change in venue, Dr. Al-Arian's lawyer, William Moffitt said: "I am extremely disappointed. This is probably the first time that I will go into a case believing that my client is not presumed innocent."

Defense lawyers cannot appeal the ruling until the trial, which is scheduled to begin on June 6, is over.

We encourage as many people as possible to attend the trial to show support. Email tampabayjustice@yahoo.com for details.

Letter Re: Jewish Elites behind Sudan-Darfur. [N.T. #42]

The Jewish opinions about forcing US to go and stop so- called genocide in Sudan is nothing but a way to kill more and more Muslims as possible taking one excuse or the other. We are goyim in their eyes and their rabbis eyes; therfore it is Ok to cheat and kill the goyim, that is us Muslims or Christians. Therefore Jews are called as "maghzoobe alaihim" in the holy Quran, the one on whom Allah send his wrath. [surah fatiha.] Inshallah Allah's punishment will come on them soon. They are forgetting that they were many people who spread tyrrany and oppresion in the world under the so called banner of "chosen people". And everybody knows if we turn the pages of history what happened to them. If the Jews were chosen people Allah would not have sent the holocaust on them under Hitler. bottom line: It is only since last twenty thirty years or so they have begun to emerge because of failure of Muslims to check upon their own deeds and deviation of Muslims from the sunnah and the Quran and adopting the wrong ways of other people. Muslims have worldwide realised this and are beginning to realise more of their follies. Inshallah help from Allah will come soon and the enemy will be defeated.

America is land of the free and it belongs to ALLAH. like any other part of the Universe and people who spread evil will face a terrible end. Evil can never triumph over good. It is the law of nature. Actually Muslims should call themselves chosen people because Allah has said so in the Quran in many places. If the jews continue with their evil designs and plans they might have to face a worse end than the holocaust as a punsiment form ALLAH subhanawataala. All praise be to Allah lord of the worlds.

Afghanistan Analysis

What's Behind the Attack on the Mosque in Kandahar?

[from our Media Monitor]

All the U.S. TV news channels, cable and evening, reported the "attack on the mosque" in Kandahar in which a "suicide bomber" killed 20 people and injured 45. No details were given on TV but Associated Press [AP] and BBC gave details of the attack which provide context.

Before we study the AP report, the context of the war in Afghanistan should be looked at. During the U.S, assault on Afghanistan in 2001, supposedly in retaliation for 9/11, the U.S. air force continued its bombing campaign during the sacred month of Ramadan when most Muslims pray and fast. The bombing had three significant aspects:

ATTACK on the MOSQUE: June 1.

A religious preacher turned coat and joined the Karzai-U.S. coalition. He used the pulpit of the Mullah Abdul Fayaz mosque to vilify the Taliban and to urge support for Karzai and the Americans. On May 30, he was gunned down by a sniper who escaped.

His funeral ceremony at the mosque was attended by a large force of Karzai police officers and policemen. Among them was General Akram Khakrezwal, Kabul's police commander, known for TORTURE, RAPE and MURDER of Islamic opponents of the Kabul government.

The BBC report indicated why the martyrdom operator could not be spotted. He was wearing police uniform and melded in with the police officers present. Thus, evidently, the crowd was largely police, known for their atrocities against Muslims.

The AP report agrees with BBC. It quotes a doctor at Kandahar Hospital, Nazir Ahmadzai, who said of the 20 killed and 45 wounded "many of them were Khakrezwal's bodyguards."
[Quoted in Bangladesh Observer of June 2.]

Observers find it somewhat ironic that Karzai's Interior Ministry spokesman issued this statement: "They are the enemies of peace and the enemies of Islam. Attacking Muslims while they are offering prayers and performing religious ceremonies is completely against Islam, against our country."

Reports indicate that the Interior Ministry, in conjunction with U.S. troops, is terrorizing Afghan villagers across the country. Afghans say, these people, the Karzais, are committing the biggest sin against Islam, working hand-in-glove with a Kafir occupation army. Observers see no grounds for the Interior Ministry to talk in terms of Islam and Afghanistan.

{The Interior Ministry statement is contradicted by a statement from Kandahar's deputy police chief, General Salim Khan, who said the explosion occurred "near where people remove their shoes before praying" [AP], not inside.}

The U.S. military spokesman in Afghanistan, Col. James Yonts, also issued a statement after the June 1 attack in which he condemned it as an "atrocious act of violence upon civilians and a mosque." Our reporters find it difficult to figure out what that statement means when the U.S. itself has bombed mosques, by the dozens, in both Afghanistan and in Iraq. The closest ally of the U.S., Israel has DESTROYED 135 MOSQUES in OCCUPIED PALESTINE. As for innocent civilians, the U.S. has killed thousands in Afghanistan and 100,000 in Iraq.

What then is the basis for such a morally high stance? Autonomous groups, non-Muslims, such as the International Committee of the Red Cross [ICRC] and Amnesty International have testified that humanity is being violated in Guantanamo Bay, and the Qur'an was desecrated by the U.S. It borders on the comic for a U.S. military commander to now claim to be worried about an attack on a mosque


Most Muslims may not be aware of these verses of the Qur'an but our researchers say the Afghans are aware of them. The Qur'an calls such a mosque masjidan diraran wa kufran. Here is the text:

"And there are those who put up a mosque by way of mischief and kufr - to disunite the Believers - and in preparation for one who warred against Allah and His messenger aforetime. They will indeed swear that their intention is nothing but good, but Allah does declare that they are certainly liars. Never stand thou forth therein..."
[The Qur'an 9:107-108.]

The verses are seen as a perfect fit for the Karzai-U.S. alliance.

Interesting Propaganda Gambit By Kandahar Governor Gul Agha:

Immediately after the attack, the Governor of Kandahar, Gul Agha issued a statement in which he said: " The attacker was a member of al-Qaida. We have found documents on his body that show he was an Arab."

Our researchers indicate that it would have been very difficult for an Arab to mingle with the Afghan police officers whom the attacker wanted to kill. Pushtu and Dari are difficult languages for any Arab to pronounce. His accent would have given him away in a second. Also, the facial features of Arabs are very different from those of Afghans.

Thus Gul Agha was probably trying to stir up hatred against the Arabs, to paint the attack not as an act of resistance but as the terrorism of a "foreign" agent. For Karzai's people, the forces of the kuffar are not "foreigners" but fellow Muslims from Arab countries are "foreigners."

Gul Agha and his family are known for their corruption and for their sexual exploits against both men and women. Such people certainly do not belong in a mosque. Most reports indicate that Gul Agha is protected by the U.S. air force.
Karachi, Pakistan:

Huge Funeral Procession for Murdered Islamic Activist:
Musharraf is Patron of Altaf-MQM Fascist Gang says Qazi Hussain Ahmad:
Remain Peaceful but Isolate them.

On May 30, assassins killed Muhammad Aslam, a Jamaate Islami leader from the Landhi-Korangi area of Karachi, a vast lower middle class region on the outskirts of the city.

On May 31, tens of thousands of Jamaate Islami workers as well supporters from other Islamic parties and some from Peoples Party and Muslim League [Nawaz Sharif] attended the funeral. The funeral procession was five kilometers long.

As the body of the martyr arrived, the mourners chanted "Allahu Akbar" and openly blamed the murder on gang leader Altaf Hussain, living under British protection in London, England, and his ethnic group of killers known as MQM which rules Karachi. Masses of mourners chanted:

"Shahadaton ka qafla ruka nahin thuma nahin/shaheed tera qafla ruka nahin thuma nahin."
['The Caravan of martyrs has not stopped or paused/O martyr, your caravan has not stopped or paused.']

"Qatil, qatil, Altaf qatil, Governor qatil"
[Murderer, murderer, Altaf murderer, Governor murderer.]

In a strong speech just before the burial, Qazi Hussain Ahmad, national leader of Jamaate Islami, urged the people to isolate Musharraf and Altaf by peaceful struggle and grassroots movement. He said: THERE CAN BE ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT that the murderers of Muhammad Aslam and others killed in Karachi are Altaf's gang who are under the patronage of General Musharraf and MQM Governor [Ishrat al-Abad]. MQM, he said, has been given free reign to carry out terrorism and murder in Karachi. There is no Shia-Sunni conflict in Pakistan, he said. It is being created and stoked by the enemies of Pakistan.

Numerous speakers from a variety of viewpoints condemned the murder and the murderers.

[There was a general strike in Karachi to protest the murder.]
