Movement to Withdraw $700 Million From Israeli Funding

Jamaat al-Muslimeen's peaceful efforts to hit the Zionist Jews in the pocket book are continuing. Here are two examples:

On Sept. 24, 2004, a documented brochure calling for BOYCOTT of businesses which support Israel was given to 200 Muslims at Masjid al-Farooq on 14th street in Atlanta, Georgia after Juma' prayers.

An African-American brother took 15 brochures for his small mosque. A Palestinian brother took 30 copies for an Arab community.

The brochure went like "hot cakes" as this is an ICNA controlled mosque with a deadbeat "leadership." The people, mostly immigrants, are thirsting for Islamic determination.

In Washington, DC, Jamaat al-Muslimeen gave the BOYCOTT brochure to a bus full of distinguished Muslim visitors from Africa who had been brought to view the politically dead Islamic Center on Massachussets Avenue. The visitors were also given a report in rebuttal of Zionist propaganda about Darfur [Sudan].


[from New Trend's media monitor]

TIME magazine, with a track record of hatred against Islam, has published a front cover story on Darfur [Sudan], trying to demonize the biggest African country, in a major attempt to spread the "genocide" lie into homes across America.

TIME is a heavily Jewish funded, Jewish backed, Jewish written, Jewish propaganda magazine, pretending to be American, which has repeatedly done dirt on truth and honesty.

PAKISTAN: [From various Urdu language publications.]

Sept. 25, 2004. Taliban supporters in Quetta blew up a Pakistani police vehicle killing 3 police officers and wounding three policemen. One of the mujahideen was also killed in the exchange of fire. The details indicate that General Musharraf is using Shias against the Taliban. The senior Pakistani officer wounded in this attack is DSP Nisar Kazmi. Members of the Shia group Millate Jafaria gathered at the hospital, where the wounded police were taken, to demand better security.

Sept. 26. South Waziristan. A huge Pakistani military convoy of 75 trucks was travelling from Wana to Dera Ismail. Near Sarokai, at a point called Sari Garan, Pakistani mujahideen ambushed a segment of the convoy. Two military trucks were destroyed, 3 Pakistani soldiers were killed and 7 severely wounded. Pakistani helicopter gunships responded rapidly but the Pakistani mujahideen melted away into the rugged countryside.
Sept. 26. General Musharraf's forces raided a house in Nawabshah [Sindh province] reportedly killing Amjad Farooqi, an Islamic fighter wanted in the killing of Jewish journalist Daniel Pearl. Farooqi's house was set on fire. A Muslim woman in the house and her two children were also arrested. [A little confusion here. Musharref is telling U.S. media that the martyr was Amjad Farooqi, with a price of Rs. 20,000,000 on his head, but is refusing to identify him to the Pakistani media.]

Sept. 26. FALLUJAH: The U.S. carried out THREE air attacks on this Islamic city within 24 hours. AFP reports that 30 civilians were killed and 50 wounded in these attacks, most of them WOMEN and CHILDREN. The U.S. stated that it was attacking Al-Zarqawi's gathering points.

After the bombing two martyrs came out of the city and carried out car bombings against U.S. and Iraqi forces outside Fallujah. Numerous U.S. and mercenary Iraqis were wounded. [AFP gave no numbers.]

In BAGHDAD, U.S.A. used TANKS and HELICOPTER GUNSHIPS within the crowded streets of SADR city to hit followers of Moqtada al-Sadr. Dozens of civilians are reported killed.

[Prestigious Pakistani daily Nawa-e-Waqt reports: THREE BRITISH MUSLIMS have joined the Musa'ab al-Zarqawi mujahideen in Iraq. Numbers of Afghan and Chechen mujahideen have also reached Al-Zarqawi, the paper reports.


In new atrocities, reported on Sept. 27, Indian occupation forces have killed 12 Kashmiris. Two of these were shepherds, Abdul Ghani and Jamal Butt. India claimed they were fighters. Two mujahideen and three Indian troops were also killed in separate incidents.

U.S. Forces & Mercenaries Raid Mosque, Desecrate Qur'ans

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraqi security forces backed by U.S. troops stormed a mosque in the Iraqi capital Saturday to search for illegal weapons, the U.S. military said.

Religious officials said the raid left a trail of overturned furniture, scattered holy books and broken windows.

Capt. Tom Burrel of the Army's 1st Cavalry Division said no weapons were found during the raid on the Ibn Taymia Mosque in west Baghdad. He said U.S. forces searched the shrine's compound while guardsmen entered the mosque itself.

Sheik Mahdi al-Sumaidaei, the head of the Supreme Association for Guidance and Daawa, a conservative Sunni clerical organization that runs the mosque, denounced the operation as part of an effort to intimidate the group because it opposes the U.S. military presence in Iraq.

Al-Sumaidaei particularly condemned Iraqi security forces for working alongside the Americans.

"They have no respect toward a mosque," he told the Al-Jazeera television station. "We know that the government has betrayed its people many times."

He warned that if such raids continue, "a disaster will take place."

The association, made of up of Wahabis, or followers of an austere brand of Sunni Islam practiced mostly in Saudi Arabia, is suspected of having influence over militants waging a 17-month insurgency in Iraq to oust coalition forces and destabilize the U.S.-backed interim authorities.
Our Second Review of IMPERIAL HUBRIS

From Within the Power Structure: Why The Islamic Movement Led by Osama is Winning against U.S.A.
Israel is Key to U.S./Islam Conflict

Review by Dana Moore, Ellicott City, Maryland
Special to New Trend

Anonymous, the author of Imperial Hubris: Why the West is Losing the War on Terror, seems to me to be of two minds.

On the one hand, he appears to express some sympathy for the motivations of al Qaeda to attack the West, specifically the United States. He mentions bin Laden's "six goals"* several times as worthy and justifiable. And these goals appear to be within the power of the U.S. to ameliorate, with no damage to its security.

On the other hand, the author seems to discount any possibility of accomodating al Qaeda in its demands, and he opts instead for all-out devastating war. He feels that, so far, the U.S. has been too tepid in its response to al Qaeda, partly as an accommodation to the U.S. citizenry's being unwilling to tolerate large numbers of casualties, and also because responsible people in the military and the government are unwilling to "speak truth to power" for fear of risking their jobs or future career possibilities.

Anonymous' mention of Emerson, Pipes, Krauthammer, and Reagan in a favorable light makes suspect his somewhat sympathy for al Qaeda's goals. These persons, especially the first three, have been extremely ciritical of Islam.

On the other hand, he is one of the few authors who is willing to call into serious question the U.S. unqualified support of Israel. In a section entitled "The Burden of an Eternal Dependent," the author has the temerity to point out that:

"Surely there can be no other historical example of a far-away, theocracy-in-all-but-name of only about six million people that ultimately controls the extent and even the occurrence of an important portion of political discourse and national security debate in a country of 270 million people that prides itself on religious tolerance, separation of church and state, and freedom of speech."

The centrality of the Israeli factor in this Islamic/Western conflict is inescapable.

*six U.S. policies which al Qaeda objects to::
  1. U.S. support for Israel that keeps Palestinians in the Israelis' thrall.
  2. U.S. and other Western troops on the Arabian Peninsula.
  3. U.S. occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan.
  4. U.S. support for Russia, India, and China against their Muslim militants.
  5. U.S. pressure on Arab energy producers to keep oil prices low.
  6. U.S. support for apostate, corrupt, and tyrannical Muslim governments.

Sabrina Varroni: Italian Muslim Woman Defies Bigotry Against her Burqa [Outer Covering worn by Islamic females]

Mario Borghezio of the populist Northern League party on Monday lashed out after a policeman in northern Italy fined a woman who wore a full-length loose black robe that covers the head and face, outside her home on Saturday.

The woman's mother called the treatment of her daughter - a convert to Islam - harassment, and said the local authorities were acting "worse than the Fascists did 60 years ago".

Borghezio praised the policeman and the town mayor who backed him for "doing their duty," noting that Italian law prohibits people from moving about with their faces covered.


Burquas, he said, were "a symbol of the most obscurantist type of Islamic fundamentalism in regards to women" and had also become a "symbol of death" because some of the women hostage-takers at the Russian school wore similar coverings.

"Unfortunately, they bring to mind the images of death of the 'witches' covered by black burquas (burqua is the name given in Iran and the Indian subcontinent to the covering) who were responsible for that horrendous massacre," he said in a statement.

The fining of Sabrina Varroni, a 34-year-old mother of four, married to a Muslim, revived a national controversy over Muslim head-coverings in predominantly Roman Catholic Italy.

Italians are divided over whether to allow headscarves to be worn in public, but there are no specific laws banning them such as in France, where they, and other religious symbols, are prohibited in state schools.


Senator Gianfranco Pagliarulo blasted the fining, calling it "an ignoble persecution that widens the distance between diverse cultures".

Pagliarulo, a Communist Party member, said the mayor of the town was shrinking from his duty of defending the rights of all his citizens and accused him of inciting religious intolerance.

Varroni's 70-year-old mother, Santina, said the behaviour of the local officials reminded her of life during the Fascist dictatorship of Benito Mussolini before the second world war.

"I lived through Fascism. I know what it is. This (town) administration is run by Fascists," she told Reuters by phone.

"All that's left to do is to take my daughter away and put her before a firing squad for being different," she said.

Santina Varroni said her daughter converted to Islam 11 years ago and began wearing a headscarf. She started covering her face completely four years ago after she returned from Haj, a pilgrimage to the Muslim holy city of Makka.
