Clinton's Visit to Africa Aimed Against Islam
Nigerian Muslims Give the Reply

Demonstrations in Kano and other Nigerian cities underline the anti-Islamic agenda of U.S. President Clinton's visit to Africa. The demonstrators in their thousands chanted anti-American slogans and burnt Clinton in effigy.

Nigerians are protesting American support for opposition to the implementation of Islamic Law (Sharia). As New Trend magazine reported briefly in its latest issue, TEN NIGERIAN STATES HAVE NOW IMPLEMENTED SHARIA.

The U.S. and its media try to give the impression that Sharia is somehow against non-Muslims. As Nigerian law makers and Islamic scholars point out, Sharia in fact safeguards the rights of non-Muslims. The Sharia implementation signals the will of the Nigerian people to follow Islam in their legal and judicial system as they do in their private lives. It is this fulfilment of the Muslim peoples' rights which is irksome to the U.S. government.

EVER SINCE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF SHARIA BEGAN IN NIGERIA, international Zionism, supported by the U.S. has been trying to bring about conflict between Christians and Muslims. The purpose is to create the impression that somehow Sharia is to be blamed for the incidents of violence.

Extremist missionaries are sent to Islamic majority areas where they openly abuse Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and his companions. When the Muslims respond, they are presented as "violent" and the army is sent in to "restore law and order."

READERS SHOULD NOTE that AFRICA IS AN ISLAMIC CONTINENT at peace with minority religions, including Christianity. The Zionists, with the full support of the U.S., are trying to disrupt and destroy Africa's peace and stability.

NIGERIA IS ONLY ONE EXAMPLE. In the other major African country SUDAN, the Zionist-U.S. combine has played with the lives of millions by smuggling sophisticated weapons to the criminal group headed by Garang. To stop the Sudan from controlling the situation, slavery propaganda was launched against Sudan, the fragile country was branded "terrorist" and sanctions were imposed on it.

Egyptian intelligence officer Emad Salem, who implicated Muslims in the Shaikh Omar conspiracy allegations, was seen with a U.S. congressman in the Sudan, as we previously reported.

ALGERIA is another Muslim African country where French-Zionist-World-Bank-U.S. interests cohered. The FIS, party of the Muslim masses, was crushed under the tread of tanks, thousands of Muslim women and children were slaughtered by special units posing as "islamists" and the major U.S. media condoned the horror which is Algeria.
(We will look separately at Rwanda and Burundi.
Nigeria dead dictator Abacha (most people don't know) recognized Israel and the U.S. continued its links with Abacha while making noises about human rights.
The ANTI-ISLAM FORCES have also made a big effort to turn Yoruba and Hausa Muslims against each other.
If you would like to join Jamaat al-Muslimeen in Nigeria's cities such as Zaria, Kano, Bida, Kaduna or Lagos, let us know. Nigerian scholar Muhammad Kudu, graduated from Khartoum and Makka, impressed American audiences when he visited at the invitation of Jamaat al-Muslimeen.

Br. Islamul Haque's students and friends are very influential in Islamic circles in Nigeria. Br. Kaukab Siddique's visit to Kano, Kaduna, Zaria, Ilorin and Lagos brought thousands of Nigerians to read New Trend.
