Condoleeza Rice Confirmation Hearing Uncovers Moves
Dr. Rice's confirmation hearing [January 18 and 19] for the post now
held by Colin Powell is important reading for those interested in
problems within the American power structure. The position of
Senator Joseph Biden [Democrat from Delaware] is typical. He thinks
Condoleeza Rice does not tell the truth but will still vote for
her because President Bush wants her in his inner circle. Why
deny him what he wants?
Here are some very damaging insights provided during the questioning
of Dr. Rice which indicate how the American people are being fooled:
Dr. Condoleeza's Responses to the detailed commentary by Sen. Biden
and charges of telling lies by Sen. Boxer showed that she could not
give clear answers to anything. Her language showed deep antagonism
to Islamic forces around the world, be they the Jihad movement or the
Iranians or Saddam supporters. Here is a summary of her thoughts:
Iraq had no WMDs but the U.S. claimed that it not only had WMDs but
that these WMDs were an "immediate threat" or a "mounting threat"
to the U.S.
Once it became clear that no one could support the theory that
Saddan Hussain had WMDs, the Bush administration shifted its position
and started claiming that he had to be removed because of his human
The "gassing" of Iranians [Halabja, etc.] of which Saddam is accused
took place in the 1980-1988 time frame when Saddam and the U.S.
were close friends.
The U.S. knew of the gassing, yet Rumsfeld visited Iraq, met Saddam,
and Iraq was temporarily removed from the terrorist list.
Condileeza Rice worked hard to convince the American people of an
Al-Qaida-Saddam linkup and the claim that there was danger of a
"mushroom cloud" [nuclear attack] on the U.S. owing to the linkup.
Defense Deapartment's own documents show that there was no Al-Qaida
in Iraq before
After the invasion of Iraq, al-Qaida has increased its influence
tremendously. Previously this Islamic network existed in 46 countries.
Now it is rooted in 60 countries and most worrisomely in African
The inner circle of Senators was told that Saddam was going to
launch UAVs [unmanned aircraft] from merchant ships to attack the
American eastern sea board. [Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Florida].
Dr. Rice wrote to oppose a bi-partisan attempt to stop the
legalization of torture and now claims that she did not.
[Her memo was produced by Senator Barbara Boxer, D-California, to
give her the lie.]
Evidently there has been secret top level authorization of the use
of torture against Islamic prisoners. The Islamic fighters are not
considered protected by the Geneva Conventions.
The U.S. attempts to prepare an Iraqi force to fight the Islamic
"insurgency" have failed. The figure of 120,000 Iraqis ready and
trained to take over security in Iraq is a fake.
America has failed in Iraq. If it stays there, the cost will be
astronomical. The Bush administration might have to ask for another
$100 billion, even $200 billion,
to continue the occupation of Iraq. [Sen. Biden.]
Islamic prisoners are handed over by the U.S. to "third countries" to
be tortured. [Senator Dodd, D-Connecticut.]
The way to stop the spread of "radical Islam" is to support
"moderate Islam." [Senator Obama, D-IL.]
[Sidelight on Jewish influence]: There is a special [secret?] office
of Special Envoy for "Holocaust victims" in the State Department.
[Sen. Nelson wanted to ensure that it will continue.]
Saddam's real problem was his sympathetic "attitude towards terrorism."
[Dr. Rice uses "terrorism" as an euphemism for armed Islamic resistance.]
There has been and is a "jihadist threat to America."
[it's not clear how or why.]
Dr. Rice is not only opposed to Al-Qaida but the ENTIRE range of what
she calls "Islamic extremism."
Even if Iran gets rid of its ENTIRE nuclear infrastructure irreversibly,
the problem will not be solved.
The real problem with Iran is the "totality of its relationship"
with the U.S.
The "mullahs" ruling Iran are "illegitimate."
[Sen. Lincoln Chafee, surprisingly a Republican from Rhode Island,
started saying that they (presumably the Mullahs) have an elected
Parliament but was cut short.]
NEW TREND REPORTING RECEIVED STRONG CRITICISM and STRONG APPROVAL
[Ref: New Trend, #125, December 25 which was about
an imam in Masjid Dar al-Hijrah, Virginia, and a
I find it strange you attack an imam just because he wears a tie,
suit and cultural mannerisms. Then in the very next acticle you
acknowledge the worth of someone who was even more westernized and
upper class his entire life. If god planned something special for
Jinnah why not this imam? I've seen pictures of Hassan Al Banna
wearing a tie, does he deserve to be condemned as well?
By cooincidence yesterday we saw the movie about Jinnah produced by
Akbar Ahmad. It does not have the entertainment value of an
"Attenborough" but it was extremely informative and deserves to
be more widely known. I agree that his integrity was his strong point.
I think muslims in general don't need some big idealogical agreement
to work together, they need to get some "integrity" to work genuinely
for each other, not selfish interests.
I am curious, if you were alive at the time of Jinnah would you not
be condemning him as the "islamists" of his time did as being a
collaborator and unislamic?

HUMAN RIGHTS LEADERS AND JOURNALISTS VISIT
The Give Peace a Chance Coalition has returned from a fact-finding
visitation to Sudan, January 12th - 21st.
"'Take Pride and Engage With Africa" Says Group
While African-American congressmen and activist continue actions to
undermine Sudanese President Omar el-Bashir and his National Congress
government through high-profile civil disobedience actions, to curb what
they describe as "ongoing atrocities committed by government-sponsored
militiamen known as the Janjaweed"; a group of African American
and community and human rights leaders say such accusations are
"counter-productive, inaccurate and non-productive." "Instead of being
the lead group counteracting actions of peace for Sudan, we countersign
the peace accords and seek to empower Black Americans in new ventures and
networks with Sudan through knowledge and information," says delegation
leader, GPAC Executive Director Hodari Abdul-Ali.
"In addition to knowing there are pyramids in Sudan that pre-date those
in Egypt, African Americans should visit and make ties there. If African
Americans and their leadership, took pro-Africa rather than no-to-Africa
positions, more in our communities would be providing guidance toward
better trade, social and business networks for Americans, and African
Americans, with Africa. In our January 25th Press Conference, and
through subsequent forums, we bring insights toward establishing ties
with our African family. The press conference will give information
about findings we have of Sudan and how our African American Leadership
Visitation Network will be engaged, providing a critical template across
America to help toward working with African educators, political
officials and women and community groups" says Abdul-Ali, long-time civil
rights activist and owner of Dar es Salaam Bookstore in Mt. Rainer.
"Ancestors of most American blacks come from the Western Sudan.
Currently, growing numbers of African Americans associate with Africa
with great pride of legacy. Many blacks take pride in the fact of their
early legacy. From late in the 300's to 1591 A.D., three highly
developed black empires high the planet's most advanced civilization in
Western Sudan. They were the Ghana, Mali, and Songhai Empires" says Mr.
"Some of black Americans' forefathers lived in legendary Sudan and should
be proud and pleased for contemporary Sudan's peace. With the kind of
history Sudan (Land of the Blacks) has, African Americans Blacks who say
they take pride in their African heritage should preserve the places from
which they came. The current peace package offers so much and so many
possibilities for the people of Sudan. We want African Americans,
whether Christians, Muslims, elected officials or community activists to
be of help to Sudan's growth and development by ceasing actions that
hinder," says Ali, who attended Howard University 1973 - 1976 and opened
Pyramid Bookstore in 1981, which became an Afro centric landmark Ali
operated until 1998.
GIVE PEACE A CHANCE DELEGATION RETURNS FROM FACT-FINDING IN SUDAN URGING
A FRAME-WORK FOR PEACE:
Group Questions Congress' Southern Bias
Members of Congress, their staffers and mainstream media only give the
American public one side of the tragic story of Sudan," is an assessment
of a African American Leadership Delegation just returned from
fact-finding in Sudan.
"To give African Americans a more accurate picture of events and issues
occurring in Sudan, we took a 12-person (8 men, 4 women) delegation to
that country January 12 - 21, 2005," says Give Peace a Chance Coalition
(GPAC) Executive Director Hodari Abdul-Ali. "We visited in 7-million
population Khartoum, the conflict-ridden rural region of Darfur, met with
over 200 government officials; opposition figures; community, religious
and tribal leaders; and representatives of the African Union and
international relief organizations. Most complained that Congressional
and media reports about situations in Sudan are less than accurate,"
states the group's report.
The trip coincided with signing of the peace treaty between Sudan's
government and leaders of the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM)
after warring for 20 years. "People of substantive
civil-and-human-rights backgrounds in our delegation urge Americans
to seek peaceful solutions for severely deprived populations in Sudan and
question information and legislation about black governments in Zimbabwe
and Khartoum" the report says. Delegation members say "nation-wide
building activities will be required to put people to work and put down
We challenge actions and positions of Virginia Republican
Congressman Frank Wolf, New Jersey Congressman Donald Payne
and Senator Jon Corizone and Kansas Senator Sam Brownback
and their portrayals of events and people in Harare and Khartoum."
"Constructive engagement with Sudan will be more fruitful than the
vinegar of dissent, disinvestment and protest marches of the lobby for
regime change," says Bill Reed, GPAC delegation organizer. "The signing
of the peace accord is historic and long overdue. The road ahead will be
treacherous for the Sudanese, both in the north and south. To make peace
a success in Sudan, the U.S. must change its position from pro-South to
pro-Sudan," says Reed.
"We are building coalition networks to make African Americans more aware
of U.S. policy and how it affects Africa and Africans in the Diaspora.
We want them to make recommendations to lawmakers for constructive
engagements with Sudan. People who've been staging anti-Sudan marches
should be marching in another direction. Instead being lead by
partisans, they should follow the road America's Ambassador to the
United Nation. takes on Sudan. Ambassador John Danforth sought peace
and played a key role in the peace accords. Danforth spent over
two-years pushing the protagonists to sign. Danforth influenced
President Bush's administration to seek and achieve peace. During the
same period, Congress helped continue the war and the suffering of the
Sudanese nation with its pro-South strategy. It passed two 'Sudan Peace
Act' bills, punishing the Khartoum government, but never acknowledging
wrongs of other warring parties. All sides have a stake in Sudan Peace.
But getting and keeping it requires positive actions from African
Americans", says Reed. Next in our national censuses-building program
for positive actions among African Americans for Sudan is a student forum
at Stanford University, in Palo Alto, California, Tuesday, February 1st,"
"To prevent collapse of the historic peace agreement situation needs
careful monitoring and management of lingering tensions between armed
groups", says delegation member Michael Davis, executive director of the
Universal Human Rights Network. "To prevent collapse of the agreement,
it's important to create a platform for the development of millions of
displaced Sudanese people. That requires the active and positive
involvement of African Americans in support of peace in Sudan via
organizations like our network, the African Union, United Nations,
the US, European Union and Sudan's regional neighbors," says Davis.
