Important News which the media fudged:
December 8, 2005. [FOX News] Syrian troops killed 8 Islamic
militants, supposedly after a battle, in the town of Edleb.
[New Trend comment: For 33 years Syria has not fired a shot
against Israel. It's vast army is used only to hold down its
Muslim population ruled by a small Nusairi heterodox minority.
The rulers are highly westernized and secularized. After the
murder of Hariri, at the first threat from the U.S., Syria
immediately withdrew its troops from Lebanon.]
December 10, 2005. An Israeli patrol boat machinegunned a
Palestinian trying to swim to Gaza from the Egyptian border.
The Israeli excuse was that he had something tied to his leg.
December 8, 2005. Israel carried out an air strike in Gaza,
killing 2 Palestinians and wounding seven.
[Briefly noted by FOX News, neither the faces, nor the names,
nor the families of the Palestinian victims were revealed.]
SPIELBERG's FILM Schindler's List MISLED AUDIENCES.
Spielberg has produced a new film titled "Munich" which
will create tremendous new propaganda support for Israel.
It will be released at the end of December.
Millions of Americans were fooled by Spielberg's earlier
movie Schindler's List. In a well documented and
iconoclastic book, Dissecting the Holocaust
[edited by Germar Rudolf who has been imprisoned by Germany],
there is an interesting critique of Schindler's List.
A scene from the movie shows the Nazi commandant of
Plaszow Concentration camp shooting from his house down
at prisoners, picking them off at random. However, a
diagram of the camp now made possible by air photos
taken in 1944 [National Archives, Washington DC] shows
that that the Commandant's house was BELOW the camp.
There was NO WAY he could have seen prisoners from his
house and shot at them. [See pp.258-259]
Thus Spielberhg clearly lied for his propaganda purposes.
Another trick Spielberg played, according to the Rudolf
dissection, is that he made the movie segments in black
and white to convey the impression that it was a DOCUMENTARY
of actual events. The dubbing was provided in German, with
no translation, to strengthen this impression of German
barbarians hunting Jews. [p.260]. Actually it was made
from a novel, a work of fiction.
In addition, Spielberg did not tell viewers that the SS,
elite German command, itself punished the commandant of
the camp for his misbehavior and conspiracy with
Jewish Kapos to mistreat the prisoners. Most Americans
do not know that many Jews themselves worked as guards
[Kapos] to help maintain the camp.
With that kind of "honest reporting, beware of Spielberg's
upcoming movie "Munich" bewailing the killing of Israeli
athletes after all these years during which the Jews have
committed crimes which boggle the mind. When will the
Palestinians make a movie of the Jewish murder of Islamic
leader Shaikh Yasin who was torn to bits by a
helicopter-fired Israeli missile as he came out of the
mosque after Fajr prayers in his WHEEL CHAIR? He was quadripalegic.
German Muslim's Abduction and Torture by U.S. Indicates
Blatant Violations of International Law by the Bush Administration
[The following report from the Associated Press leaves out
a couple of important points in the story. U.S. TV reports,
such as FOX, indicate that the German government may have
pointed out the Muslim to the U.S. secret services. Notice
how German Chancellor Merkel is trying to defend the U.S.?
Also, it leaves out the point that Khalid was drugged before
being abducted. He could not have been stopped at the
Macedonian border without clear orders from Germany and
the U.S. The government of Macedonia is very weak and
puppet-type. - Editor]
German Man Claims US Tortured Him
The Associated Press
Tuesday 06 December 2005
Washington - A German man filed a lawsuit Tuesday
claiming he was held captive and tortured by US government
agents after being mistakenly identified as an associate
of the Sept. 11 hijackers.
Khaled El-Masri, who is being represented by the
American Civil Liberties Union, said he was arrested
while attempting to enter Macedonia for a holiday trip
and flown to Afghanistan. During five months in captivity
he was subjected to "torture and other cruel, inhuman or
degrading treatment," says a lawsuit he filed in U.S.
District Court in suburban Alexandria, Va.
In Berlin, meanwhile, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said
the U.S. has acknowledged making a mistake in the man's
arrest. "I'm happy to say we have discussed the one case,
which the government of the United States has of course
accepted as a mistake," Merkel said. She spoke after
meeting with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who
refused later to discuss the case with reporters.
The suit names as the main defendant former CIA Director
George Tenet. In addition to torture, he claims his due
process rights were violated and that he was subjected to
"prolonged, arbitrary detention." He is seeking damages
of at least $75,000.
"I am asking the American government to admit its mistakes
and to apologize for my treatment," El-Masri said in a
statement. "Throughout my time in the prison, I asked to
be brought before a court but was refused. Now I am
hoping that an American court will say very clearly that
what happened to me was illegal and cannot be done to
The CIA rendition program, in which terror suspects are
captured and taken to foreign countries for interrogation,
has been heavily criticized by human rights groups.
The scope of the program has not been disclosed by the CIA.
However, Amnesty International claimed Monday that six
planes used by the CIA for renditions have made some 800
flights in or out of European airspace, including 50
landings at Shannon International Airport in Ireland.
El-Masri, 42, was born in Kuwait to Lebanese parents and
moved to Germany in 1985. The married father of five said
that on New Year's Eve 2003 he boarded a bus in his
hometown of Neu-Ulm for a holiday in Macedonia. At the
border he was stopped by Macedonian authorities and
his passport was confiscated.
He said he was detained by local authorities for 23 days
and then handed over to what he believes was a team of
CIA operatives. He then was flown to Afghanistan where he
was subjected to abuse during four months in captivity.
In late May 2004 he was flown to Albania and then put
on a plane back to Germany.

Napalm used for Terrorism in Iraq+"Save the Earth Rally"+McGill U.
Information Clearing House - an eye-opening website
currently has an interesting article by one Mike Whitney,
entitled: Incinerating Iraqis - The Napalm Cover-up.
This article confirms that whatever weapons of mass destruction
(WMD) Iraq had were in fact exported into Iraq by invading
countries, like the USA , the UK, Germany, etc. to subjugate
the Iraqis and humiliate them!
This article rightly suggests that the "conventional weaponry
and laser-guided technology" ran roughshod over the Iraqi
army and captured Baghdad and the whole of Iraq, without any
Mike Whitney also asserts that "Napalm was introduced to
terrorize the Iraqi people and to force them to surrender
through intimidatation". There is no doubt that the state
terrorists, like President George Bush, Vice-President
Dick Cheney, Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice
and Secretary of Defence, Donald Rumsfeld, are the
people who are really playing and have played in the
past, important roles in organizing worldwide terrorist networks!
The latest mission of Secretary of State Rice to Europe, is to
really to explain the Europeans how the USA was performing
"rendition" operations in the East European torture camps,
to save the Europeans from the terrorist activities of Al-Qaida!
The so-called "counter-terrorism" operations against the
South American countries of Nicragua and El Salvador, in the
time of President Reagan, in which Cheney and Rumsfeld were
also actively involved, took place only in the recent past!
A letter in The Gazette, Montreal, dated December 1, 2005,
by reader Sherbanu Parpia , appropriately reminds us of the
generous use of anti-personal lethal weapons in Iraq. She
points out that the American government "wants to keep the
Iraq war under wraps. That is why the Iraqi dead are
collateral damage and are not even counted".
When will we take notice that when the Americans bombed
Fallujah, thousands of Iraqis died? Their bodies rotting
on the streets, for days only to be eaten by the dogs
and vultures! Sherbanu rightly concludes in her letter:
"This truth has to be acknowledged".
Thousands of people bundled up and braved frigid temperature
of Saturday, December 3, 2005, to protest against Global
Warming, as part of the worldwide day of demonstration.
This demonstration copincided with the United Nations
Climate Change Conference, which held its deliberations
from November 29 to December 08, 2005. Protestors with
banners and signs marched to the chants and drumbeats
of the demonstrators.
The organizers of the demonstration, which were in fact
a coalition of many environment-related lobby groups,
numbered more than 40,000! Additionally, a 45-meter
square panel was set-up besides the Palais des
congress venue, of the Conference. This panel was
set up by the organization, "Friends of the Earth
Internatioal" and contained about 3000 short messages,
relating to global warming and enviromnmental issues.
These messages were contributed by the people from
all over the world. Some of them were:
- Immigration to Mars imminent. Save our planet before it is too late!
- The earth is our mother. You do not kill your mother.
- A five-year old signed the message: Stop pollution!
- Please save the earth!
- Life style and not climate change.
-Think globally, act locally.
A complaint of discrimination , against the McGill Univdersity,
has been filed by the Muslim students of this University, with
the Quebec Human Rights Commission. It may be mentioned that
while McGill University's Christian and Jewish students have
the Birks Chapel and hillel House respectively , to fulfill
their religious needs and right on the McGill Campuis, no
serious effort has been made, to get the Muslim students
such an exclusive place so that they can also worship in
privacy and peace. Right now, the Muslim students are
using inconvenient places like stairwells to offer their prayers.
It is sincerely hoped that the Quebec Human Rights Commission
will come up with a fair ruling which will help the Muslim
students to get an affordable accomodation on the campus itself.

NC Muslims applaud acquittal of Florida professor
BY NICK G. MAHERAS ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER
HIGH POINT, North Carolina. “Area Muslim leaders are
cheering a Florida professor's acquittal of charges he
helped lead a terrorist group that mounted suicide
attacks against Israel.
Sami Al-Arian, a Florida professor, was acquitted Tuesday
of 8 of 17 charges he raised funds and advocated for the
Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
Al-Arian maintained a Greensboro address during the early
1980s. That's when Badi Ali and Wajeh Muhammad, Palestinians
who live in Jamestown, met him and his family.
I'm proud to call him a friend of mine, said Ali, imam
(teacher) at the Islamic Center of the Triad in Greensboro.
This verdict is a victory for Sami and for the Muslim
community in America. Ali said Al-Arian's acquittal sends
a clear message to the U.S. Muslim community that the
American justice system works “ even after Sept. 11.
Muhammad, a member of the Islamic Center's board of directors,
organized a group named Justice for Sami Al-Arian after he
was arrested in Feb. 2003.
Muhammad said the group contributed money to Al-Arian's
legal defense, invited his son and daughter to Greensboro
to speak, and sponsored sales of books Al-Arian wrote while in prison.
Federal prosecutors spared no expense or resources to collect
evidence against Al-Arian, he said.
He was in jail for over two years, Muhammad said. All that
money and all that time, and they still could not prove
their case. Muhammad concedes Al-Arian invited activists
from Palestinian groups to speak at Muslim conferences,
but insisted his personal friend" never joined the
Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
Prof Al-Arian's Victory Could Lull Muslims into Sleep
ALARM! BEWARE! This is not a win for us. This Muslim scholar
and teacher, Dr. Al Arian, and a few other Muslims were
falsely arrested and held by the authorities on planned weak
evidence. The government scheme is a plan to release these
innocent Muslims in an apparent future courtroom "victory"
to provide the appearance of a "good America" as if the
criminal justice system is just. Believers, please don't
be fooled. The system is as unjust as ever. The enemy of
truth will never be far from falsehood and lies. This is
an old counter-revolutionary (now counter-terrorism) tactic
to fool the public and the leaders. This apparent "victory"
gives the enemy the go-ahead to convict many more innocent
Muslims who are being held and who will be arrested in the
future. Their incarceration becomes more palatable to the
public and the Muslim society with occasional "victories".
They will be lulled into waiting for another "victory".
Fortunately none of the enemy are good. Victory will come,
insha'llah, when the enemy is defeated.
As Salaamu Alaikum
Resist Oppression Allways.
From: "DEEN WORKS"
Al-Arian Could be Re-Tried and/or Deported!
This acquittal was a real slap in the face to the US
government- and they never give up. This is no time to
let up the pressure. Particularly because our
'representatives' just re-upped the Patriot Act for 4
more years today.
U.S. May Yet Deport Acquitted Ex-Professor
By MITCH STACY, Associated Press Writer
Former college professor Sami Al-Arian may have won in
court this week, but his future is still murky as he
awaits the U.S. government's next move, which could
The verdicts were a stunning defeat for federal
authorities who had been assembling the complex
case against him for a decade.
Al-Arian, 47, remains in jail, where he's been since
his February 2003 indictment, while the federal
government decides whether to retry him on the
deadlocked charges, which include three key counts
accusing him of conspiracy to support the Palestinian
Islamic Jihad. Officials say there is no timetable for
"That's something we're currently evaluating whether a
retrial is appropriate," Attorney General Alberto
Gonzales said Thursday in Washington. "These are very,
very difficult cases, and obviously we're disappointed
in what happened in Tampa. We believed this was a good
case to bring."
If the government decides to abandon the remaining
charges, it's doubtful Al-Arian will be permitted to
return to his previous life in Tampa. He had been a
computer engineering professor at the University of
South Florida, but was fired after his indictment.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is holding
him on an immigration detainer and likely will try to
deport him if he's released from jail. The agency can
deport any foreign national it deems a terrorism risk
and is held to a lower burden of proof than the

Temporary Marriage is Forbidden in Islam.
[On the Internet a person named Syed Mohsin Naquvi distributed
Al-Khoee Foundation's program to legitimize Mut'ah. Dr. Siddique
took him to task for it. Whereupon Dr. Siddique received a
letter from Syed Meesam Razvi on behalf of Al-Khoee
Foundation. Here are the letters.]
Attempt by Al-Khoee Foundation to Legitimize Mut'ah Rebutted.
Syed Meesam Razvi walaikum asalam
Mut'ah or temporary marriage is not an academic issue. It is
an insult to womanhood and is correctly understood as a
form of prostitution.
Mut'ah was clearly and unambiguously forbidden by the
Prophet Muhammad, pbuh. It is HARAM. This prohibition is
stated in authentic Hadith collected by the most erudite
scholar of Hadith, Imam Bukhari.
What Tahawi says days not matter. He is an "imam" of what?
Who gave him the authority to turn HARAM into Halal? Even
all the imams combined cannot negate the teaching of the
Prophet Muhammad, pbuh.
I know that the Shi'ite claim in support of Mut'ah is
based on INTERPRETATION of one verse of the Qur'an. If
you know the basics of Islam, you should know that Halal
and Haram has to be based on CLEAR verses of the Qur'an
or on totally authentic and unambiguous Hadith,
not on interpretation.
If interpretation were allowed in matters of law, there
are people like Dr. Jamal Badawi who can use the Arabic
dictionary to claim that Jihad can mean any serious
exertion because of its root in J-H-D, not fighting!.
Similar process can be used to legalize drinking because
khamr may not cover all kinds of liquor.
Remember that the Prophet, pbuh, is the final and decisive
interpreter of the Qur'an.
As for the other issue, Al-Khoee Foundation is known for
its support of the American occupation of Iraq. Instead
of beating around the Bush [pardon the pun], why don't
you clearly admit that you support the occupation. Even
Shias like Moqtada al-Sadr are opposed to your Foundation's
activities in Iraq.
The question arises, why did you bring up the issue of
Mut'ah? If you feel happy with temporary marriages, which
degrade and trivialize women, you should teach it to
people who are interested in Shi'ism. It is extremely
insulting to other Muslims for you to brazenly claim
that the Ahl-al-Sunnah accept Mut'ah because someone
named Tahawi said so.
You still do not realize that the Muslim world is facing
enemies who want to enslave all Muslims, be they Shi'a
or Sunni. Five cities have been destroyed in Iraq.
Hundreds of villages were wiped out in Afghanistan.
Palestine is under occupation. Iran might face a
nuclear attack from Israel.
And you are trying to bring up sickening concepts which
degrade women and which strike at the well-established
family system of Islam. Need I say more?

[By the way, Razvi sahib, to be taken seriously, you must learn
to spell. The word is "adultery," not "adultry." Tell Naquvi sahib also.]
From: "Meesam - Al-Khoei Foundation"
To: "'kaukab siddique'"
Dear Mr. Kaukab Siddique,
You have the right to give opinions, we have an obligation to
respect it and expect the same from you.
Al-Khoei Foundation organized the talk-show in the spirit
of pluralism so that both the Shi'a and the Sunna may see
where the other is coming from. This was not a polemic
debate but a dialogue; precisely why we invited an equal
number of Sunni scholars who chose not to turn up. Also
the moderator did not take any positions. This was not
an attempt at converting any one. Only way to remove
friction between the sects is to discuss issues that
cause it and we are doing exactly that.
I suggest you think rationally. We are not trying to
negate you and it is not not us quoting from your books
and sources but Imam Tahawi, a Sunni scholar who himself
attended this show. Please read:
"Imam Tahawi, categorically denied abrogation of the
verse 4:24. Quoting Ibn Taymiyya et al, he said that
there was no consensus (ijmaa) among the Sunnis that
Mut'ah was ever prohibited by The Prophet SAWW"
Plus another very well-respected Sunni Scholar, an Imam of a Mosque in Brooklyn, New York, while excusing for his absence from the talk show, himself said to me on phone that he believes that Mut'a is NOT illegal but allowed only in certain circumstances! I suggest you enhance your knowledge on the subject before you make any further comments. You think it is sex slavery for women? Please see what Dr. Sachiko Murata, a female academician has to say about the practice of Temporary Marriage. Her profile is available here:

Though it is another topic but I am appalled at the way you
chose to accuse Al-Khoei Foundation. Please fear Allah (SWT)
and do not go on tangents. Killing of innocent people in
Iraq pains us more than any one else
We condemned it when Saddam was doing it and we condemn it now.
Al-Khoei Foundation has had two Secretary Generals from
1989 - 2003 and both followed the tradition of Prophet
(SAWW) and his Family (AS) by sacrificing their lives in
the name of Allah (SWT).
