Peaceful Moves for Change Ignored
MOSUL: 500 University Students Protested
Army Break-ins into Mosques
On December 21, the day of the attack on the U.S. army mess hall, in
the morning students of the University of Mosul demonstrated peacefully
in the streets. There were more than 500 of them, a significant number
in this time of war and social dislocation.
They were protesting the U.S. military presence in Mosul. Their main
demands, which they chanted and repeated throughout the protest were:
gave hardly any coverage to the peaceful demonstration. It appeared
on the news ticker of the cable channels and disappeared without comment.
Stop U.S. troops from breaking into homes.
Stop U.S. troops from invading mosques.
Stop arbitrary arrests and searches.
operation, no further notice was paid to these educated, young people
who can be described as the conscience of Mosul.
The U.S. army blocked all the bridges into town after the explosion and
sent armored patrols into Mosul's main streets.
people are disgusted with the American occupation, but the U.S.

16,000 insurgents in all of Iraq.
SAUDI REGIME SQUASHES PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATION FOR CHANGE
Last week, a peaceful demonstration was to be held in the "Saudi"
cities of Jidda and Riyadh. However, the Saudi government moved quickly
to quash the demonstration before it could be held. The
demonstrators-to-be were picked up from their homes before they
could come out on the streets.
In a bizarre continuation of the repression, Faqih, who lives in
England and whose organization called for the peaceful demonstration,
learned that his funds and all linked funds were being frozen by the
government on the plea that his funds are connected to those of
"terrorists." It's not entirely clear to

LEADERLESS MUSLIM MOSQUE SELLS COCA COLA: Imam gives Khutba with Tie On!
On December 24, 2004 Jamaat al-Muslimeen representatives distributed
the boycott brochure against
businesses at Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia.
Attended largely by immigrants from various Arab countries and
this million dollar mosque with chandeliers attracts about 300 to 500
people on Fridays.
The Jamaat gave the boycott brochure to 204 people, including 30 women.
Dar al-Hijrah seems to be a leaderless mosque with no sense of direction.
COCA COLA was being sold INSIDE the mosque structure, in the foyer,
just below the women's room at the back of the mosque. The mosque
organizers do not seem to know, or do not care, that COCA COLA:
was given by an imam who was the epitome of the leaderless condition
of the mosque:
Lacks nutritious content
Is harmful owing to its sugar content.
Is involved in supporting
He was wearing an American suit with an ugly red tie [symbol of the cross].
A Muslim with the "cross" dangling in his neck!
In spite of being dressed like an American, he did not speak English
and gave the entire Khutba in Arabic.
It was a dead khutba, which did not give any sense of direction to
Muslims. He spoke of the obvious, that Jesus, p, was the servant of
Allah, not the son of God. Which Muslim immigrant from an Arab country
would not know that? [He kept referring to Jesus, p, as "the Messiah"
without explaining what it means in the
During the khutba, the imam with the red tie made small hand gestures
which are typical of the Arab upper class when talking DOWN to the
Mohommed Ali Jinnah, Iqbal, Maudoodi: Why is
so Precious for Modern
December 25 is very important for Pakistanis. It's the anniversary of
the Founder of Pakistan, Mohommed Ali Jinnah, known to most Pakistanis
as Quaide Azam [the Great Leader].
The story of Jinnah encapsulates the struggle going on in Pakistan, a
country which might at any point in history emerge as the leader of the
Jinnah was a very westernized Muslim, coming from a Shia background.
Allah was preparing him for a special role in history. He became an
expert in British law and understood better than most people how the
mind of the British imperial masters of
Most people these days do not know how Jinnah became known to the
Muslims of India. A Hindu writer had written an abusive book about
the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) titled Rangila Rasool [we seek forgiveness
from Allah for mentioning the title] about his marriages.
A Muslim named 'Ilm Deen went and killed the author in broad
daylight and then calmly turned himself in to the British authorities
who tried him for capital murder.
Mohammed Ali Jinnah volunteered to defend Ilm Deen, thus putting his
own career on the line. He wanted to plead for Ilm Deen's life on the
basis of "temporary insanity' as a good lawyer would. Ilm Deen surprised
Jinnah by saying that he was proud of doing what he had done and to give
his life for the honor of the Prophet (pbuh) should be a matter of
pride for any Muslim. This was Jinnah's first insight into the
Islamic psyche. [Ilm deen was sentenced to death and hanged by the
British, unrepentant to the end.]
Mohommed Ali Jinnah's life is one of STEADY DEVELOPMENT and CHANGE in
his understanding of Islam and of the struggle of the Muslims of India.
Under the INFLUENCE of ALLAMA IQBAL, Jinnah realized the political
dimensions of Islam and developed the TWO NATION theory which is the
basis of Pakistan. As Jinnah later put it about Hindus and Muslims
are TWO NATIONS, DISTINCT and SEPARATE:
"... we neither interdine nor intermarry ..."
Iqbal passed away, leaving the indelible dream of a separate homeland
for Muslims under Islamic Law in the mind of Mohommed Ali Jinnah.
Jinnah knew the concepts of DEMOCRACY very well, and soon realized
from the political situation in India that in a democratic India,
Muslims would always be outvoted by the vast Hindu majority. He
tried persistently to maintain Hindu-Muslim unity but was realist
and honest enough to realize that it was unworkable. Hence he left
the Indian Congress party [which had both Hindus and Muslims in it]
and joined the Muslim League.
He could not speak Urdu with ease, the language of Muslim elites, and
the Muslim masses could not speak English. However, the Muslims saw him
as a leader with impeccable integrity, and in his speeches when they
heard him say: "Islam" and then "Pakistan" they roared their support.
The Muslim League soon gained a mass support base owing to the efforts
of numerous mullahs [mosque preachers]. Jinnah was steadily changing.
Under the influence of Maulana Shabbir Ahmed Usmani, he became an
orthodox Sunni, gave up his western suit and tie
[expensive imports from Paris] and started wearing the Sherwani [or
long Muslim, Turkish style, tunic] which became his hallmark.
JINNAH ACHIEVED PAKISTAN OWING TO HIS ABILITY TO STAND UP TO THE
MACHINATIONS OF THE HINDUS and the BRITISH and owing to the mass
support of the Muslims. Across India, the Muslims chanted and sang:
"Muslim Hay tow Muslim League main aa." ["If you are a Muslim, come
into the Muslim League."]
"Pakistan ka mutlab kiya? La Illaha illAllah." ["What does Pakistan mean?
There is no god but Allah."]
WHAT HAPPENED AFTER PAKISTAN CAME INTO BEING August 14, 1947?
The British and the Hindus were determined that even if they had to
concede Pakistan, it should not survive. An attempt was made to
DROWN PAKISTAN IN A SEA OF BLOOD.
Several million Muslims were killed in massacres organized by the Hindus
The largest MASS MIGRATION in human history took place as
10,000,000 Muslim refugees poured into Pakistan from India.
The Indian army occupied Hyderabad and Kashmir. [Sikh and Hindu units
serving the British army during World War II were quickly brought back,
while Muslim units were delayed till it was too late.
To the surprise of both the Hindus and the British, Pakistan survived
this cataclysmic birth, mostly owing to the faith the Muslims had in
the leadership of Jinnah, now known as Quaide Azam.
However, Quaide Azam died soon after. He had been hiding a terminal
illness. Following him, Liaqat Ali Khan, the Prime Minister of Pakistan
was assassinated. Since then Pakistan has been in the vortex of an
unending crises which every now and then threaten its very existence.
BETRAYAL by ENTRENCHED SECULAR BRITISH SURROGATES:
The British had left behind three important forces which had little
interest in Islam and the people of Pakistan. They were well-organized,
well-funded and determined to continue the British system. These were:
[Gradually an industrial sector developed in Pakistan which is closely
aligned with these three.]
After Quaide Azam died, these three groups decided to de-Islamize and
secularize Pakistan. For them Islam was the religion of the poor and
the ignorant, whom they despised.
It would have worked out for the rulers, except that ALLAMA IQBAL had
invited from India, before he died, a man name SYED ABUL 'ALA MAUDOODI.
He had a small organization with him called Jamaate Islami. Owing to
his efforts, the ruling class could not obliterate the dream of
Iqbal and efface the sacrifices of Mohommed Ali Jinnah.
The Feudal lords who controlled the large agricultural sector of Pakistan.
The Bureaucracy [including police] which reached every tiny sub-sector
of Pakistan and was steeped in British ideas of class superiority and
the supremacy of the White race.
The armed forces.
Maudoodi suffered endlessly at the hands of the secularists. At one
time he was sentenced to death. [The government fell before it could
be carried out.] He and those with him were repeatedly imprisoned, but
to no avail. MAUDOODI STOOD FIRM. Owing to his efforts,
Pakistan as a nation wrote into its constitutional document that
SOVEREIGNTY BELONGS TO ALLAH ALONE.
The corrupt rulers of Pakistan took the country down from one depth to
the other. The army generals hooked up with America to exploit and
plunder their own people. Between General Yahya and Bhutto (a feudal
lord) on the one side and Mujibur Rahman, a secular India-linked
demagogue on the other, Pakistan lost its eastern wing which became
Bangladesh. It was a tragedy of giant proportions which apparently
wiped out the original concept of Pakistan.
However, owing to the resurgence of the Islamic movement, Pakistan
has risen from the ashes of 1971. If one looks at the masses, Islam
is stronger than ever in Pakistan. If one looks at the rulers, there
is no hope for Pakistan. The rulers of Pakistan,
led now by General Musharraf, have sold out so completely to
America that one wonders if any Pakistani independence still
exists. However, the peaceful Islamic movement in Pakistan is now
bigger than ever before. It is also reinforced by a burgeoning Jihad
movement. The future, inshallah, belongs to Islam.
What War Time Message Muslims in America can Give to non-Muslim Americans?
Shawwal and Zulqi'dah,
Dr. Kaukab Siddique
gave SIX Juma' Khutbas, in Central Baltimore, West Baltimore and
Lincoln University, Pennsylvania. Here are the main points of a
khutba which he gave to a largely immigrant audience.]
We must tell Americans what they cannot learn from the media:
Among America's Muslims there are
two major tendencies which are both NOT
following Islam as revealed to and implemented by our leader Muhammad
No Islamic group anywhere in the world wants to force Christians, Jews
or Hindus to become Muslims. There is no compulsion in religion, says
All the wars are taking place in Muslim lands.
No Muslim is trying to take over India, Russia, America or Europe.
NO AMERICAN MUSLIM IS A TERRORIST. Why should we do anyone any harm?
We are winning any way! Why? Because we have the Qur'an and the authentic
and that's what is winning the hearts and minds of Americans.

Attorney General Ashcroft has resigned. During his REIGN of TERROR, he
could not arrest EVEN ONE AMERICAN MUSLIM TERRORIST because there are
none to catch. Instead he arrested thousands of innocent Muslims who
have done NOTHING against America. He had an ugly imagination and
claimed that a Hispanic Muslim, Jose Padilla, [Abdullah al-Muhajer]
wanted to explode a "dirty" bomb!
More than 2 years leader, there is no evidence against Padilla but he
is still being held without trial.
We Muslims must open the Qur'an and study it on a DAILY basis. Where
it needs explanation or interpretation, study the Hadith.
Salafis: They focus on LAW, the externals of worship, the physical
forms of salat, of dress, of beard.
The Sufis. They think the "spirit" of Islam is more important. They
talk about the heart and the soul.
These two constitute the divergences from the straight path Allah
wants us to walk on with the help of Muhammad's (pbuh) Sunnah.
The Sufis too need to stop distorting Islam: They have to look at
the central message of Islam, focus on its genuine texts, and not pick
up weak, often apocryphal Hadith.
The Jews became fixated on LAW. Like the U.S. administration, they have
a law for everything.
To correct the Jews, Allah sent Jesus (pbuh) who taught that 'the
LETTER of the Law kills, the Spirit gives Life."
However, the followers of Jesus, p, took only the spirit and forgot
Muhammad (pbuh) corrected the followers of both Moses and Jesus. His
Sunnah shows us a harmonization of Law with Spirit. Both the Salafis
and the Sufis have largely abandoned the Sunnah of Muhammad (pbuh) and
are following bits and pieces of Islam. We urge Salafis to look at the
LIFE of Muhammad (p) to get the right spirit, not just read the texts
in a literal sense.

MYSTERIOUS DEATH of WRITER who EXPOSED DISTRIBUTION OF DRUGS in
[Written by Dr. Akbar Muhammad.]
[Received from Dr. Abdul Alim Shabazz.]
On Monday, December 12, 2004, I read in the obituary section an
article regarding the death of Gary Webb, the reporter for the San Jose
Mercury News and author of the book entitled
Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion
On Friday, December 10, 2004, movers found the body of Gary Webb in his
California home. As they entered the door a note attached to it said,
"Please do not enter. Call 911 and ask for an ambulance." He was found
with a gunshot wound to the head that was later described as a suicide.
For those of you who may not remember this reporter, on August 18, 1996,
Gary Webb wrote a series of articles for the San Jose Mercury News
bearing the same name as the book to expose the fact that the CIA
worked with a drug cartel group out of Nicaragua, in particular,
who brought in cocaine which was later converted to crack cocaine.
