US Government Moves Against four major Mosques and the Alavi
The government is going after major Islamic centers linked
to Iran. The mosques will remain open while the court
process continues for months but it looks like Israel won
The assets include Islamic centers in New York City,
Maryland, California and Houston, more than 100 acres in
Virginia, and a 36-story office tower in New York.
New Trend observers say, very recently Israeli terrorist
Netanyahoo met President Obama. The talks were secret but
Iran was mentioned as a topic of discussion. The coming
closure of these mosques is a major move and a first in
recent US history against places of worship. Thousands of
Shi'a Muslims will be affected.
Latest war news: General Kayani fooled by Pak Taliban. From
October 16 to November 11, 2009 General Kayani's juggernaut

Meeting World Famous Historian David Irving.
Hated by the Israel Lobby
Arlington, Virginia: November 9, 2009: Two of our Islamic
activists met David Irving at a select gathering where he
spoke of his latest research on documents related to the
Second World War.
With his unique research ability, Irving has been studying
German messages which were decoded by the British during the
war.The few hours we spent with Irving helped us to
understand why the Israel lobby and International Jewry
globally keeps hounding him and prevents him from getting
his amazing and meticulous research published by the best
publishing houses. In fact his enemies follow him from city
to city and try to prevent him from speaking even at private
David Irving is certainly not an anti-semite let alone a
Nazi as his enemies love to whisper. He is very forthright
about the tremendous suffering of the Jews at the hands of
some of the top Nazis, especially in Poland and Russia.
However, he goes by documentation and not by a fixed agenda.
He also sees the suffering of the German people, including
the holocaust of more than 100,000 German civilians in ONE
night caused by the British and US air fleets in Dresden
Listening to Irving, one realizes that his research is the
most damning report on the moral collapse of western
civilization. What happened to religion and women in Europe
is closely connected to what Germany did and what was done
The Israel Lobby does not like Irving and prevents him from
reaching the media because he has not found any document
which would support the theory that Hitler wanted to
exterminate the Jews or that there were gas chambers at

brings out the frauds Churchill perpetrated on his own
people and his extensive connections with Zionist

exclusion he has suffered at the hands of the Israel

their revenge by getting him imprisoned in Austria for a

Teaching Islam to students in Tennessee:
Crime has Social, non-racial Causes.
Latino Population Growing Rapidly: Many Blacks still
Yusuf El-Irlandi [Jamaat al-Muslimeen Knoxville,
The class went great, I started out by writing the 13th
amendment on the dry erase board and proving that slavery
HAS NOT been abolished in America, because the prisons are
established on the old plantations and the overwhelming
majority of inmates are black and Latinos - who are forced
to live on the margins of society and are oppressed and
disenfranchised.. They are still out there picking crops
and having the master look over them with a shotgun. The
class was all students of European descent with one African
American student from Queens, NY.
I then expounded on a major case that was happening here in
the locale where two African American youth allegedly
kidnapped, held hostage, and murdered two Caucasian youth (a
man and a woman). This case is so huge in the area that
when they were arrested in 2006/2007 the KKK had a rally on
black on white crime in America. I told them that a crime
like that just does not spontaneously happen and we need to
look to why - if they in fact did it (they were both
convicted, one to death and one to life in prison) - is it
really their fault when their mother was a prostitute junky
and there was no father? Who was there for guidance? And
was this a random case of violence or was it two bourgeois
youth suffering retaliation in a drug deal gone bad? Why
are these two Caucasians being portrayed as saints when they
were hanging out in the ghetto - there must have been a
reason for them being out there....
I also set up a table with the Jamaat's info on political
prisoners, the boycott brochure, and some issues of New
Trend dealing with political prisoners. I also explained
what Jamaat Al-Muslimeen is all about and the outreach
Jamaat does for people of all walks of life, not just
Muslims. I also gave out business cards with my website and
After the class, the African American student pulled me
aside and said he was a Muslim. He told me how he liked my
talk because most people in the class just wholesale say
"hang them" and "fry them" when cases as stated above are
talked about - he also told me that when any topics of the
Islamic Resistance come up they say that all those Muslims
should be sent to the electric chair too, or hanged. It
made my night when he told me that because I knew they were
surprised when they saw me, found out my background (highly
educated parents, middle class, etc.) and I was Muslim.
I also recieved an email from one of the students who is
married to a Guatemalan man discussing her outrage on the
racial profiling and law enforcement harrassment of her
husband because the authorities automatically think that he
is an "illegal". She asked me what could be done about
The latino population is growing VERY rapidly and the police
are very rascist and are imbeciles. There is one area out
here called "the valley" where all the blacks have basically
been forced to live and if a white person goes in there then
automatically the police think they are coming in there to
get something illicit. They will pull you over, call the
dogs in, etc. for no reason and no probable cause.

Major Dr. Nidal Malik Hasan: The Canary in the Mine
By Ambereen Ehsaan [Excerpted from
It all begins and ends in Palestine, no matter where in the
world it happens. The human mind can only absorb a finite
level of oppression before it releases itself from all
inhibitions, and goes berserk. This happens to the brain
that witnesses violence, participates in violence and is the
recipient of violence or oppression, also called Dhulm.
Allah Subhanawataala reminds us repeatedly in the Quran that
the most abhorrent people on the face of the world are the
oppressors or those who do dhulm.
Oppression or Dhulm is a double-edged sword. When one raises
ones hand to strike someone weaker than oneself, the
resulting outcome leaves an indelible mark on the psyche and
the memory of everyone involved. The striker and the
recipient both have an indelible memory, never to be
impugned from their psyche, effecting all events in their
future in perpetuity. There is no cure for the scar on the
psyche, only prevention.
The believer is instructed in the Quran to help release the
oppressed from oppression but not to go even an iota more in
the direction of becoming an oppressor oneself. This of
course is a very difficult thing to do because in most cases
warriors get drunk with the power of victory and the brain
shuts off the frontal lobe operating only at a very base
level of reactive violence. The major exception to this rule
in history was Saladin in his victory of Jerusalem where he
gave safe passage to those who had killed not only Muslims
but also Jews.
When two million people came out in the streets of the USA
decrying the war on Iraq, they at an intuitive level
understood what it would do to their own people, leave alone
the people of the world. Amongst them were the mothers of
some of those killed in the 911 disaster.
What does all this have to do with Major Nidal Malik Hasan
of Fort Hood?
Reports tell us that his parents came from Palestine,
fleeing the oppression of Israel, and sought sanctuary in a
free democratic country. A son was born to them in the
United States their adopted country. Perhaps in gratitude,
they sent him into the service of the country they had
What prompted him to choose Psychiatry? Perhaps stemming
from a desire to understand the nuances of the disturbed
psyche and a feeling that he perhaps could be of help to
them, a thought of most physicians training to become
psychiatrists. The news reports his subspecialty was
It has never been voiced whether he was ever exposed to the
memories of the carnage of the Sabra and Shattila camps in
Palestine, but it is entirely possible that the choice of
Psychiatry was something related and was perhaps a
subconscious attempt to set the tortured minds of the hurt
and the injured in war at rest.
Americans that had not seen war for a while were hurled into
two wars. The one in Iraq which was built up on flimsy
grounds and enacted on lies admitted later by very senior
people in the cabinet at a huge cost to the Americans and
the Iraqis. Others believe it was to fulfill promises given
by the ex-vice president who had given the contracts to a
company for just about everything in Iraq at inflated prices
at the expense of the American taxpayer.
As the backdrop of this drama unfolded, the first few
reports of soldier suicides started to come in, followed by
female soldiers and female contract workers raped by their
employers and fellow soldiers. It seemed from these reports
that it was a free for all in Iraq with no holds barred.
The general American public who were not involved with the
military heard only sporadic reports which completely
disappeared shortly after appearing in sideline newspapers
or unknown medical journals.
It was the American youth who discovered what their soldiers
and contractors were actually doing in Iraq by the
sequential release of youtube and google videos by American
soldiers who could not stand the depravity of some.
It was the young college students who first reported to
their elders that all was not well in Iraq, and the military
was not really in charge and that the contract workers had
more power and were better paid than the American military
that was defending them. No one took much notice of them as
life was good, the economy was good and Iraq and its
problems were very far away.
It appears that Major Nidal graduated from medical school
and psychiatry training right into this mayhem of a helpless
military ruled by contractors. Due to the protection of the
vice President, the depravity of the contractors could not
be challenged and having the favorite child status with the
vice president of the United States of America, the second
most powerful figure in the world, their behavior could not
be reigned in.
As the soldiers started to return home, their lives forever
imprinted with the violence of war and the violence of inter
racial, inter gender war and oppression, they spilled it all
out to Major Nidal the Muslim Psychiatrist of the Army.
At this point someone in the Medical Profession remarked: "
Major Nidal should have gotten out of the kitchen if he
could not take the heat; he should not have been in the
military". From the reports it seemed he tried to get out,
but the reasons given for wanting to get out of the military
were harassment, and he was denied exit.
One day someone from the military released the deadly and
sickeningly deathly photos of Abu Ghraib, which outdid the
Bastille in France. Though The Bastille and its torture
chambers had incited the French public into the French
revolution, no such reaction to the carnage came from the
American people. No one was touched in America other than an
initial outrage with no follow up.
It would seem that Major Nidal had to absorb the details of
Abu Ghraib also, and counsel his sick soldiers.
It seems from the reports that the contractors had neither
the ethics nor the code of honor that is taught in the
military and being in Iraq where the population was
helplessly at gunpoint proceeded to do whatever their
depraved minds invented. The military had to guarantee their
Meanwhile the suicides and rapes increased in number and
frequency and it matches about the time that Major Nidal
started to voice his opinions against the war. Having no
family alive and no spouse to sound things off, imprisoned
by the Hippa laws of medical confidentiality along with the
secrecy of the Military, did not leave him much room to
voice his opinion openly. When he did, he was labeled, as
being anti war which it appears he was. He continued to
protest the war and challenged that what was being done to
his patients was inhuman and was being done for a war
(Iraq), which had no basis (since it had no relationship to
911 and no WMDs, had been found.)
It appears that he was jeered, despite being an officer, for
his views and his Middle Eastern ancestry was the source of
the name-calling. Thereupon he became silent.
It appears that he treated and counseled severely damaged
soldiers whose psyche had been warped by the inhumane war in
Iraq and just when things would look slightly externally
better, these patients would be sent off to get more brain
scars, wiping clean any advances he had made in their
Did that frustrate him? Or did it frustrate him that this
war in his opinion was an unjust war without basis? Did it
frustrate him that his patients were being sent back into
the war zone, half treated? Did it frustrate him that as a
Muslim he was supposed to help the oppressed and the sick
and he was unable to do either?
I also sometimes wonder if he had the opportunity of
interviewing the gang-rapers of the fourteen-year-old Iraqi
girl and did that arouse sleeping memories of what had been
done to the Palestinians in Sabra and Shattila?
Meanwhile voyeurs as well as political elements had gotten
hold of the videos on google and youtube about the rapes and
killings and were having a hey day with them. The American
people, especially the youth were sick of what was going on
in Iraq and they saw hope in the half white half black man
who might set things right, if voted in as President. Thus
in 2008 the vast majority of the internet generation who
were witness to the sordid acts in Iraq and Afghanistan,
came out to make a statement and voted for the "Interracial
(Black and white) Hope of America"
However nothing changed. Time marched on for some and for
some it stood still as yet another soldier committed
We will never know if Major Nidal went Kevorkian and killed
his own patients who he knew were in pain and were going
into further pain or whether he reached the limit of human
ability to feel the pain of others and fell back onto the
military training of dehumanizing people to make it easy to
kill them. Or did he just snap and went on a killing
We will also never know whether he actually said "Allah o
Akbar" as was reported as an after thought two days after
the event, or was it the product of an Islamophobic fevered
mind, nor will we know if there were two other shooters who
were given asylum.
All I can deduce from the sequence of events is that Dr.
Nidal Malik Hasan is the canary in the mine and if things
are left as they are, the mine will blow up in our
Letter: Muslim "Leaders" Cautious about Defending Imam
Luqman, Blatant in condemning Major Hassan
I find it strange that so many Muslims are so ready to take
blame and apologize for Muslims every time there is a report
of a Muslim accused of committing a crime of some sort. Why
is it that we accept that Islam is being blamed for the ills
of America? Do you hear the religion of other alleged
perpetrators of crimes mentioned in the media? We should be
protesting the mentioning of Islam in association with
Next, I find it strange that certain groups were so careful
when the reports came out about Imam Luqman's murder. So
careful to make sure the right spin was put on what they
said as though they did not want to be associated with him.
However force to say something or be questioned by the
masses, they asked in a very timid manner for the
investigation of the incident.
Now we have a story that surfaced this week on CNN about a
young woman in Arizona being ran over with a car allegedly
by her father. She died of her injuries this week. When the
story was posted on a web site and then began to be
circulated on the Internet not one Imam (especially those of
larger masjid/Islamic centers and of the national groups
have yet to release a statement). I wonder why a young
woman being murder in our community does not rate a response
when mentioned on CNN? Yet before most of the facts can be
gathered about the shooting in Fort Hood some of our leaders
make sure their statements of condemnation get posted on the
blogs, newspapers and of course they must make their 15
second appearance on CNN. Why the big rush to make
statements of comdemnation? Muslims have not waged war on
America. Dr. Hassan is a product of the US military. He did
not represent me, you or anyone else.
Only Allah knows for sure what Dr. Hassan's intentions were
or his mental condition. However we do know that the US Army
by its own admission has many mentally ill soldiers in its
mist. I pray that our Muslim leadership can become more
informed, less political, socially aware and just as the
Quran teachers us. It is time for many of us to stop being
quiet and allowing people to speak for us that we do not
know, do not do anything for the masses or that we have
given permission to represent us. I personally do not see
why we owe America an apology for Dr. Hassan's actions.
However the leadership of Islam do owe the women of Islam in
this country and the world an apology for their lack of
attention to our need to be safe in our communities.

Answering Victors' Lies About German War Guilt
.. .. Unlike the Western leaders, Hitler had realistically
evaluated the dangers posed by the Bolshevik Soviet Union.
He realized that Germany would be unable resist the Soviet
Union without an alliance with Poland. For this reason he
signed a nonaggression treaty with Poland in 1934 .. ..
Since the British guarantee of March 31, 1939, gave Poland
carte blanche in its dealings with Germany, Poland
intensified its persecutions of the German minority.

War News: Pakistan
Islamic Resistance Leaders Accuse US Blackwater of
Explosions in Pakistani Civilian Populations
November 11, 2009: Pakistani Urdu language media published
messages from Shaikh Mustafa and Maulvi Tariq transmitted
through al-Sahab media web site in the form of Video CD.
Mustafa is introduced as an al-Qaida leader while Tariq is a
spokesman of the Pakistani Taliban.
Speaking in Arabic and Urdu, the two leaders categorically
rejected Pakistani government claims that explosions in
civilian populations, such as the ones in Peshawar, were
carried out by Pak Taliban. The Islamic resistance leaders
said that al-Qaida and Pak Taliban consider such random
attacks against innocent people strictly HARAM. We, said the
spokesmen, stand for the rights of the Muslim ummah. Why
would we kill our own people, asked.
The explosions, the leaders said, are carried out by the
notorious American company Blackwater; as soon as the
explosion takes place killing scores and wounding hundreds,
the Pakistani regime immediately attributes it to the Pak
Taliban and/or Al-Qaidah. This is meant to turn the people
against the resistance because the government knows, the
resistance does not have conventional media and cannot
answer the charges.
In a severe condemnation of US Blackwater contractors,
Shaikh Mustafa said that Pak media reported the presence of
armed Blackwater agents in Pakistan, some of whom were
arrested and then released by the Pakistani security.
Shaikh Mustafa quoted a verse of the Qur'an saying that when
a corrupt person brings you a report, you must study it
critically lest you believe it and harm people and then are
Maulvi Tariq Azam said that Pak Taliban are only fighting
those whose hands are red with the blood of Muslims and
Taliban consider it HARAM to attack civilians. The US agents
attack civilians usually when US officials are visiting
Pakistan, to create the impression that Pakistan is under
attack and needs US help, he said. Immediately the regime
blames the Taliban.
Pakistani Taliban have once again foiled General Kayani's
concentrated attack in South Waziristan. Here he is
addressing Pakistani Generals. Notice the lack of any
Islamic symbols in a Muslim country proud of its army. After
this meeting, he told media that Taliban are attacking
civilians because they can't face the army!

Michigan woman imprisoned by Israel following settler
takeover of Palestinian home

woman-imprisoned -by-israel. html
Imprisoned American citizen and Michigan resident Ahlam
Mohsen to be deported to the US after being arrested in a
Palestinian home taken over by Israeli settlers in Occupied
Ahlam was a guest of the al-Kurd family when on the morning
of 3 November 2009 Israeli settlers burst in and seized part
of the building. Contrary to eyewitness accounts, the police
claim the 21-year-old attacked them.
From the Givon prison in Ramle where Ms. Mohsen is currently
awaiting deportation she reported that: "The Israeli police
were violently pushing an elderly Palestinian woman. So I
stepped in front of them. They told me to move and when I
refused they started forcefully pushing me. Then they
grabbed me and carried me into a police van. While I was
waiting at the Israeli Ministry of Interior, the police
officers kept telling each other that I was a `dirty Arab'
and introducing me as 'Osama Bin Laden's sister'. One of
them, threatened to `break my head'. None of the other
non-violent demonstrators were targeted; the way they
treated me, it's obvious that I was arrested because I'm of
The 40 settlers, accompanied by private armed security and
Israeli police forces, entered a section of the home, threw
out the family's belongings and locked themselves in.
The take-over came after an appeal submitted by the family's
lawyer was rejected by the District Court. In their appeal,
the Palestinian family was challenging an earlier court
decision that deemed a section of the house illegal and
ordered that the keys be given to settlers. The settlers
proceeded to enter the house, while the court did not grant
them the right to enter the property.
The al-Kurd home was built in 1956. An addition to the house
was built 10 years ago, but the family was not allowed to
inhabit the section because the municipality refused to
grant them a building permit. Visibly unequal laws are used
to make it possible for settlers to move into a home where
it was declared illegal for Palestinian residents to
inhabit. The Israeli authorities exercise their abilities to
demolish and evict Palestinian residents, while ignoring
building violations from the Israeli population in East
The al-Kurds have become the fourth Sheikh Jarrah family
whose house has been occupied by settlers in the last year.
So far, 60 people have been left homeless. In total, 28
families living in the Karm Al- Ja'ouni neighbourhood of
Sheikh Jarrah, located directly north of the Old City, face
imminent eviction from their homes.
