FALLUJAH : U.S. Suffers Heavy Casualties at Hands of Hidden
November 11 and 12.[Day 4 and 5] When the America tank columns punched
their way into Fallujah [Nov. 10] and found very few defenders, they
declared victory. However, the victory was deceptive. As
pointed out, the Islamic formations had left Fallujah and taken over
Ramadi and parts of Samarrah.
Americans Destroying City, House by house, Mosque by Mosque.
U.S. Commanders Admit: Entire Population is "Insurgent" + Sudanese &
A second surprise development took place on Day 4 and 5. The Islamic
forces had left behind fidayeen [those willing to sacrifice themselves]
planted in numerous places in Fallujah. After the American forces passed
through, the Fidayeen of Islam emerged and engaged American troops
in firefights which have been going on for two whole days. U.S.
marines suffered another 12 killed and 150 wounded, bringing the total
to 22 marines killed and 175 wounded. The wounded are seriously hurt,
with arms and legs shot off or with internal injuries. They have been
flown to Germany where only the seriously wounded are taken. Thus the
Fidayeen have taken 193 of America's best out of battle. In addition
5 Iraqi renegades helping the U.S. were also killed and 32 wounded.
These house to house battles have rattled the Americans and now they
shoot at anything which moves, even at threatening shadows. Tremendous
American firepower has reduced this beautiful Islamic city to rubble.
Most of southern Fallujah is now in U.S. hands though fire fights in
this area continue. In one attack, the Islamic fighters reached the
U.S. military field headquarter on the perimeter of the city.
Parts of the city are still in Islamic hands although it is being
pummeled by U.S. jet fighters and helicopter gun ships. Civilian
casualties are estimated to be in the hundreds killed and thousands
wounded. Nearly 100,000 civilians are still trapped in the city. The
U.S. is permitting women and children to leave from one southern point
but NO MEN ARE ALLOWED to leave, from ages 15 to 55 [source:
News]. Thus the U.S. admits that it's not just some "terrorists" it
is facing: THE ENTIRE POPULATION IS "INSURGENT."
Arab sources indicate that the Islamic forces have lost a little over
150 killed in Fallujah, mostly in tank, artillery and helicopter
attacks. Among the martyrs are a few SUDANESE and EGYPTIANS. It's an
important point in history that
FIGHTERS are using weapons to defend the Islamic homeland in Iraq.
On November 11, on the outskirts of Fallujah, Islamic fighters shot
down two U.S. cobra helicopters. The U.S. acknowledged the loss but
said the crews are safe.
On November 12, a Black Hawk helicopter was shot down north of Baghdad.
Islamic forces have taken over most of the city and burned down
the seven police stations set up by American-funded forces. In response
to this situation, U.S. F-16s repeatedly missiled and bombed the city
of Mosul, setting fires and causing widespread destruction. Most of
the city remains in Islamic hands.
[November 13: Kurdish troops armed by Israel are being ordered by the
U.S. to attack the Muslims in Mosul.]
Two districts of the capital city have been taken over Islamic forces.
Tension is high in the city and Americans move around rarely and then
under heavy security.
WHY THE FALLUJAH ASSAULT IN RAMADAN?
New Trend's analysts are trying to figure out why the U.S. launched
its massive assault on Fallujah during the month of Ramadan and
carried it through Laylatul Qadr and Jumatul Wida'a.
It was the biggest American offensive, involving 15000 U.S, troops,
the best it has, against 1500 Islamic defenders who have neither tanks
nor artillery or air cover.
The purpose seems to have been to show the Muslim world that the U.S.
does not respect anything Islamic, however sacred it might be to the
world's Muslims. It amounted to saying: We'll crush you. Let's see if
your "Allah" will help. It's an _expression of the spirit of General
Boykin who had declared that in Somalia, America was fighting for God
while the Somalis were fighting for an "idol." It's the same spirit
expressed by Jerry Falwell who said that Muhammad (pbuh) was a terrorist.
In Fallujah, the marines blew up mosques, including the beautiful
Al-Farouq masjid, probably because the Imams continued the call for
prayer even as the Americans bombed and shelled. The American commander
claims that his troops came under fire from the mosques. There is no
evidence of this claim. The commander took it upon himself to destroy
Muslim analysts say that the U.S. destruction of all that is sacred
to Muslims is a clear statement that nothing is sacred for U.S. military
forces. The situation is not very different from the behavior of the
Under international law, every nation has a right to defend itself.
Mosques belong to the Muslims and Muslims have the right to call the
people to jihad from the mosques, as the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
himself did. The assault during Ramadan, the desecration of the
Night of Power, the violation of the Last Friday of Ramadan, the
blowing up of mosques, all these indicate that the U.S. considers
itself at war with Islam, not with "terrorists" or "insurgents.
the U.S. has deliberately chosen to attack Islam and to attempt the
destruction of Islam's sanctities and its very foundation.
WHY ARE SHARON and BUSH EXHILARATED by the Demise of Yaser Arafat?
by our Palestine Observer [November 12]
Analysis of Arafat's Attempts to Recognize Israel and seek a
What does the death of Arafat signify? It means two totally different
things to the two parties to the conflict. For Sharon and Bush, his
death means the extinction of Palestinian leadership and a chance to
"create"new "leaders." For the Palestinians it means that the
only person who could have given legitimacy to the attempts to
recognize Israel and through peaceful means obtain a Palestinian
state has passed away.
Arafat represented the secular, nationalist forces of Palestine. At
one time most Palestinians were secularist and mentally tied to western
imperatives and ways of thinking. Arafat gave great importance to the
American role in the resolution of the "Palestinian problem" as it
came to be known in the West.
The overall secularist attempt to confront Israel in conventional
warfare collapsed with the defeat of the armies of Egypt,
and Jordan under their respective secularist rulers. In 1982, Israel
Arafat seems to have gradually come to think that with U.S. support
he could come to an accommodation with Israel. He seems to have
genuinely believed that peace was possible with Israel. It was a
SERIOUS STRATEGIC ERROR and resulted in Arafat's recognition of Israel
followed by his desperate attempts to make a "partner" out of Rabin
and even Sharon.
Arafat was allowed to return to his people. His opponents were arrested
and in the usual process of "elections" under occupation, he was elected
President of the Palestinian "Authority."
He soon found out that his "partner" wanted him to liquidate the Islamic
movement which was steadily increasing in strength and which began to
respond to Israeli terrorism through martyrdom operations.
Once Arafat was among his people, he realized that the only way to
reduce the growing Islamic influence was to use Islamic slogans
himself. There was no question of liquidating the Islamic movement
from within Palestine without civil war and a fratricidal bloodbath.
In fact, Arafat's own supporters started getting affected by the Islamic
idelogy. Hence the emergence of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades.
Nearly 40% of Palestinians supported Hamas and Islamic Jihad. The era
of secularism was at an end. Arafat wanted to fulfil the program
Israel and the U.S. had given him but found that it was practically
impossible. The ISRAELIS pressed him hard to hit the Islamists. When he
couldn't, they started blaming him and ended up painting him as a
"terrorist" himself and made him responsible for the actions of the
martyrs who were responding to Israeli military power by turning
themselves into weapons.
Hence during the last years of his life he was more or less imprisoned
by the Israelis within his own offices.
Sharon, with the full backing of Bush, then decided to eliminate the
entire Palestinian leadership himself. With a blink and a nod from
Washington, Sharon assassinated Shaikh Yasin, Rantisi and a host of
SHARON SEEMS TO HAVE HAD ARAFAT POISONED:
The Israelis rampaged through Palestinian refugee camps and towns
killing whom they willed. They pretended to be jury, judge and
executioner all in one. However, they could not devise a way to
assassinate Arafat. As long as he lived, the Palestinians had a
leader recognized around the world. Arafat became stubborn under
constant Israeli bullying and decided not to agree to any more of
Sharon's attempts to get him involved in a civil war.
It appears that the Israelis finally used POISON to kill Arafat. It
was done over an 8 month period of slow poisoning. The Israelis are
experts in these forms of covert terrorism. Readers might remember
how Israeli agents tried to assassinate Khaled Misha'al in Jordan,
leading to a mini-crisis between Jordan and Israel.
When Arafat became seriously ill and was flown to France, his wife
Suha passionately addressed the Palestinian people, accusing persons
close to Arafat [secularists working with Israel] of "BURYING HIM ALIVE."
The Israeli hand became apparent when suddenly Suha
[Arafat's Christian wife] suddenly became the target of a
campaign in the Zionist-controlled
around the world.
The illness suddenly became deadly. Poison victims often die the way
Arafat died. The man who had left Ramallah blowing kisses to his people
was pronounced brain dead and then simply dead.
Immediately on his death, BUSH MADE the TOTALLY INSENSITIVE REMARK that
this death is a great opportunity for the Palestinian people to turn
over a new page in their history.
[In plain language, YOUR LEADER IS DEAD, so now behave yourself and
we'll give you something.]
Britain's Tony Blair is with Bush [Nov. 12]. The purpose of his visit
seems to be to come up with a claim that he has persuaded Bush to
take interest in the welfare of the Palestinians and to start re-mapping
the "road map." So Blair will say to his electorate: See, we helped
Bush to remove Saddam. Now Bush will help us to give the Palestinians
There is little chance that the machinations of Bush, Blair and Sharon
will work. The Islamic movement is very much alive in Palestine. Only a
couple of weeks back when the Israelis assassinated a Hamas activist
named 'Adnan al-Goul, tens of thousands of people [as referred to by
came out in Gaza to support Hamas and vowed to fight Israel.
