THINK ABOUT IT!
Salman Rushdie surfaced following the crackdown on Muslims in
Britain. In an article published in the Times of London,
August 11, 2005, he advised Muslims to "combat jihadi ideologues"
and declared that "even the sacred has to adapt to realities."

Jewish Hand Behind Sudan Hate Propaganda: AntiSemitism or Fact?
After the death of Col. Garang and 4 days of rioting in Khartoum,
Sudan is holding on to the peace process. However, those who want
to destroy Sudan are not ready to give up. On August 12, 2005 the
Jewish Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC held a
one-sided anti-Sudan, anti-Islam program to vilify the
Sudanese people. The participants were largely Jews and
they listened to speakers known for their slanted views on
the conflict in Darfur. The program was chaired by a Jewish
student named Sarah Weisman and the speakers were John
Prendergast, Ken Bacon, Gayle Faith and Julie Flint, well-known
for their hatred of Sudan and Islam.
As the program went on, it was not difficult to see why the views
of these people are so slanted. Julie Flint, a well travelled
journalist, revealed that she "travelled for five weeks with the
SLA," the armed group of rebels which has been on the rampage
in Darfur. She saw five armed clashes between SLA and another
rebel group known as JEM. It never occurred to her that the
situation in Darfur is connected to the armed rebellion and
the conflict within the rebel groups. Instead she blames
Khartoum for quelling the rebellion.
It's quite clear that these people are not humanitarians but
instigators of rebellion. Prandergast insisted on the need to
bring about "unity among rebel groups" in Darfur to make
them effective against the Islamic government. He went to
the extent of claiming that the induction of troops from
African countries into Darfur by the African Union [OAU]
"has undermined human rights." He tried to denigrate the
African troops, thus indirectly calling for direct U.S.
intervention. Ken Bacon, supposedly from a refugee organization
is so antagonistic to Sudan that he was fuming at the respect
shown to the Sudanese foreign minister during recent talks.
Earlier a fashionable young African woman was introduced as a
"survivor of the Rwanda genocide" who is very concerned about
the "genocide" in Darfur. She talked English with a perfect
British university accent and could not possibly have been in
Africa for a very long time. Evidently, she has nothing to do
with Rwanda or Darfur.
The purpose of these "genocide" stories was revealed inadvertently
by journalist Julie Flint. She said that she was trying to "get
Arabs involved" in the Darfur situation, because she has friends
in Lebanon and Syria, so that Arabs will "shut up about Iraq"
and Afghanistan. Thus the Rwanda and Sudan stories are meant
to be countervailing propaganda against the U.S. atrocities
in the countries it has occupied. These are White people
claiming to be in love with Darfur: Prendergast, Bacon,
Flint and Faith!

O'REILLY's INVITATION REJECTED
Dr. Kaukab Siddique was invited by the O'Reilly Show [Fox TV] to
discuss the London bombings. The invitation was rejected because
O'Reilly refuses to publish Siddique's critiques of his show. The
O'Reilly show is a forum for the host's extreme right wing
Islam-hating diatribes and does not provide scope for
understanding of the Islamic viewpoint.
Cindy Sheehan vs Bush: Jews Should be questioned.
The mother of a U.S. soldier who was killed in Iraq is camped out
in front of President Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas. Nearly
fifty peace activists have joined her there. She wants to know
directly from the President why he went to war in Iraq. The
President is hedging.
With all due respect, we Muslims in America urge Ms. Sheehan to
question the Jewish lobby which handles Bush. The Iraq war was
organized by Paul Wolfowitz and other U.S. Jews in
cahoots with Israeli Likud warmomger Benjamin Netanyahu.
Their plans predated 9.11.
Sign of our Times:
Israeli Retreat from Gaza : Does it Signal the Coming Defeat of Zionism?
by New Trend's Mid-East Monitor
"Israel will never leave Jerusalem and we will connect it
irreversibly to the rest of Israel."
[Sharon, quoted by the BBC, August 11, 2005.]
Israel is finally ready to withdraw from Gaza. If it does not
withdraw now, its own allies, Bush and Blair, will see it as a
liability in their attempts to stabilize their surrogates in
Muslim countries. Analysts say that the Israelis are being
defeated by two factors which undermined the entire strategy
of terror used by the Jewish state.
Firstly, the Jews were unable to make the Palestinians their slaves.
They tried very hard by throttling the Palestinian economy, by
controlling Palestinian freedom of movement, by setting up
ruthlessly enforced checkpoints and by killing Palestinian
children and youths by the hundreds. The Palestinians' WILL
to LIVE as a free people survived decades of state terrorism
carried out by the most powerful military force in the Middle
[Hundreds of impoverished and alienated Palestinians
became collaborators, demeaning themselves by spying for the
occupiers, but the majority refused to cooperate.]
Secondly, a steady stream of young Palestinians joined Hamas,
Islamic Jihad and the Al-Aqsa Martyrs brigade. The Islamic
resistance was targeted by Israeli hit squads which murdered
scores of leaders in an attempt to leave the secular leadership
The Islamic groups provided a new weapon to the unarmed and
defenseless Palestinian people: the "suicide bomber" [known as
the martyrdom operator in the Muslim world], the most hated
element of the resistance in the American media. The Israelis
tried very hard, worldwide, to discredit the martyrdom operators
but to no avail. Skilful propaganda was used to focus on those
targets of the 'suiciders' which would arouse outrage, such as
the attack on a pizza parlor, but to leave out attacks which
successfully hit Israeli miitary personnel, on and off duty.
[Americans love pizza, so the pizza parlor attack became a
favorite to arouse outrage.]
The U.S. media very carefully NEVER showed the killing of
Palestinian children and civilians by the Israelis. Even the
murder of Shaikh Yasin was justified by the Zionist media.
The Shaikh, a quadripalegic, was coming out of the Gaza mosque
after Fajr prayers in his WHEEL CHAIR, when, with the help of
a collaborator, the Israelis fired a missile into his wheel chair.
[According to the U.S. media, Shaikh Yasin was a terrorist and
this Israeli act was justified, as were all others murders
committed by the Israelis.]
However, as an avowed Zionist Hirsch Goodman admitted, the young
"suicide" bombers made the life of the Israelis uncertain, and
in addition kept radicalizing the Palestinian people, so that
Sharon realized Israel was losing.
What's remarkarkable is the fact that in spite of concerted
worldwide propaganda by the Zionist media, which often
persuaded Muslims in some countries to denounce the "suicide
bombers," the Palestinians themselves unflinchingly continued
to honor and exalt their young martyrs.
[As the Prophet's, pbuh, Companion Khalid ibn al-Walid, r.a.,
said to the forces of the Roman Empire opposing Islam, you cannot
defeat Muslims because they love death as much you love life.]
Analysts say that demonstrations by the Jewish settlers in Gaza
and their supporters in Israeli occupied cities show that these
thugs have been so pampered by the U.S. and International Jewry
that they don't realize they are criminals and are seen the world
over as the scum of humanity. They don't realize that they
forcibly occupied a land which was not theirs and terrorized
the people to whom the land belonged. They carried on their
barbaric activities for decades, living comfortably in
subsidized housing while the people they had dispossessed
lived in extreme poverty.
Now, instead of being punished for their crimes, they are going
to be "compensated" by the U.S. to the tune of FIVE BILLION DOLLARs.
Even Sharon is getting tired of their stupidity.
Islamic Woman from Post Industrial Society Advises Iraqi women:
Sharia Protects Muslim Families from Predatory Western Corporations.
We need to make it clear here that Islam does not present any threat
whatsoever to women's rights. If there is a threat existing to
women's rights in Iraq, it is coming from tribal traditions and
culture, not Islam. The Sharia law, Quran and Sunnah, in no way
deprives women of rights, nor does it violate women's rights. It
is too bad that not enough emphasis is being placed upon the
difference between cultural and tribal traditions and the actual
Shariah law, and its primary sources, Quran and Sunnah. If that
were to happen, what we would find is that laws that have resulted
in unfair treatment deemed harmful to women and societies, do
not originate in Islam. Islam does recognize the difference between
men and women, and it also sets some priorities for Muslim societies.
These priorties are not unique to Islamic societies or law, and
are found primarily in laws, even non religious laws adopted by
governments, that are aimed at preserving and protecting families,
and especially women and children, since these are by far the most
vulnerable and also important members of familes.
A Response to Zainab Salbi from Anisa Abd el Fattah.
UNITED NATIONS OPPOSITION TO ISLAMIC LAW.
The United Nations has opposed Islamic law and traditions for
this reason, and in its Draft Platform for Action, called for
the elimination of all religion for this reason and purpose.
The UN, working on behalf of the transnational corporatists who
run the US and European governments, and through the
international Feminist movement, claims that religion, and
religious cultures and traditions are barriers to women's
economic empowerment and women's inclusion as equal citizens
in societies. What this really means is that traditional
family structures, which were first identified through
religious doctrine, have prevented corporations from having
the desired access to women and children to exploit them as
cheap labor. In societies where religious laws protect women
and children with laws and traditions that are not suited to
slave labor, the law is said to be oppressive and repressing
women, but this is not true.
Whereas Islam does not prohibit women from working outside the
home, it conditions such activity on agreement between the
husband and wife, father and daughter, etc. This is what the
UN and transnational corporatists disagree with. Under the
guise of "women's liberation" they hope to break down the
family structure by destroying chains of authority in societies,
respect for authority, and also social and family priorities etc.
They want to do this to make money the god that dictates all reason
and cause for every decision made. In other words, it is as the
feminist the late Bella Abzug put it at the UN's 4th World
Conference on Women, "its economics stupid." Of course since
the banks, and corporations control money, once money becomes
the primary dictator, its controllers become false gods. We begin
to live to please them, rather than to please God. People begin
to make all of their decisions based upon the desire for money.
Remember that Satan is a liar. Just as he got our
father Adam out of the garden with a promise of eternal
life and a kingdom, the modern day Satan makes the same
promise. He is promising modernization, but only in exchange
for eliminationg God as your authority, and replacing Him with
money and greed. This is a false choice. There can be economic
development and modernization without eliminating religion, and
deconstructing socities to appease the UN or the transnational
corporations. Islam is not a barrier to modernization and
The author of the article to which I am responding says she has
years of experience working with women in Muslim in post
conflict societies. I have 50 years of experience with life,
and years of experience with women in post industrial societies.
The pressure being put upon the Muslim world to "liberate women"
and the ideology that opposes religion and religious tradition
has already visited the United States and Europe. One need only
look at the devastation it has caused on our societies to
understand its real aim, and potential for harm.
People in the West seriously hurt by Corporate Power.
People in the West have awakened and are now taking steps to
undo the harm done to our societies by the naivete demonstrated
by our governments, who fell prey to the idea that greater
numbers of people working meant greater production, greater
consumption, and better quality of life. We now know that it
really means huge corporate executive salaries, minimum and
slave wages, long hours working, no regulations to protect
workers, the break up of Labor Unions, deconstruction of women,
and construction of neither male nor female entities, and
homosexuality and legalization of same sex marriage.
It results in destruction of families and marriages, increases
in divorce, increased conflict, tension and competition rather
than cooperation between men and women in societies and great
harm to children. Population control and forced contraception
and abortion are also a part of this equation. For information
on the organized US effort to return our country to
pre-modernization standards of morality, and to reinstitute
laws that protect women and families, Google, "The Natural
Family Manifesto" and read it. It is in various languages for
The Muslim world doesn't have to make the mistakes that we made
in the West. Modernization does not have to come at the expense
of religion, families, morality, and justice. I suggest that
the people of Iraq pay careful attention to what Allah says, more
so than to what the UN or others say. We should be guided by a
desire to please God, and not to please the UN, or the transnational
corportations who are waiting to enter the enter the Muslim world
under the gusie of development, and modernization, when their real
aim is cheap labor, the break down of tradition and authority,
and the demise of the family. Islam is not a barrier to women's
rights. Islam is not a barrier to economic development and modernization.
People in the West have caught on, and are fighting back; that
is why the corporatists are shopping for new societies to
devastate. Please protect the Muslim world. Make the corporations
deal with the Muslim world on Islamic terms and the Muslim world
