Dr Kaukab Siddique | Editor-in-Chief Zulhijjah 1,1430/ November 19, 2009, # 54

Look for a "shaming" photo. Scroll way down.

From Imam Badi Ali [Jamaat al-Muslimeen North Carolina]

Spotlight #1: I would not invite him to run a restaurant or even a store in North Carolina. On what basis is Mahmoud Abbas being presented as the leader of the Palestinian people? What is the agenda behind the moves to promise "statehood" to the Palestinians through Abbas? He has neither the skill nor the ability to lead anyone, let alone a state. Israel is playing another delusion on the Palestinians while it continues to firm up his subjugation of the people.

Spotlight #2: Expression of love is very important. Don't keep silent about it. Begin with love of Allah. Express love for Allah through worship. Tell your children that you love them. Tell them that you love Allah and the children Allah gave you. Tell your parents/family members that you love them. Express yourself. Don't keep your children starved of your affection. Look at the love expressed by the Prophet, pbuh, for his grandchildren and all children.

Spotlight #3: Your words are very important for your children. What you say to your children about the future becomes like a road map for them. Choose your words carefully so that you don't mislead your children. Remember, your words are taken very seriously by your children. Note in Hadith how the Prophet, pbuh, spoke to children.

How Should U.S. Muslims Respond to the Ft. Hood and Major Hasan Media Blitz?
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

"No bearer of burdens shall bear the burden of another." [The Qur'an]

U.S. Muslims are reeling under the media blitz generated by Major Hasan's attack on troops in Ft. Hood. The lackey Muslim groups, CAIR, ISNA, MPAC, various WD Muhammad types are running amuck assuring "massa" that they love him. These lackeys can be trusted to ignore Islam and beat their drums of patriotism. As it has been said, patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel.

However, there are numerous Muslims who are not part of these lick spittle groups and are genuinely frightened by the barrage of hate-and-fear implications being aimed at US Muslims by TV and radio. Most Muslims have no idea how to cope with oppression in spite of EIGHT years of life under the Bush administration. Here is some advice which could help American Muslims to get out of the miasma of fear and hate in which they are caught:
  1. Collective guilt is not acceptable under any law, be it Islamic Law or US law.
  2. If you were not involved with Major Hasan, you don't have to be apologetic just because you are a Muslim.
  3. Did you persuade Major Hasan to attack US troops? Of course not. So, why are you apologizing?
  4. Has any impartial inquiry been carried out into the Ft. Hood attack? No! So any positions based on the media reports are without foundation. If you live in America, you should know that the media have many objectives, but the search for truth is not one of them.
  5. Were US Muslims asked for their advice when Bush clamped sanctions on Sudan [which were continued by Obama]? Of course not.
  6. Were US Muslims asked for advice on Somalia before the US decided to oppose Islamic groups trying to implement Islam in Somalia? Of course not! As a result, Somalia has the largest refugee population in Africa now but the US media ignore it.
  7. Did Bush ask US Muslims' for support before he invaded Iraq? You gotta be kidding! No!
  8. Did. Bush ask US Muslims whether he should smash Fallujah during the holy nights of Laylatul Qadr? No
  9. What about Afghanistan? The US has to destroy a whole country to "get" a few hundred Al-Qaidah people? Any Islamic advice taken from US Muslims? Not a word!
  10. Obama started bombing Pakistan without the slightest attempt to ask Pakistani-Americans.
  11. We all remember 9.11 but we forget that a MILLION Iraqis died slow deaths under the Clinton regime's sanctions before 9.11. Can we even discuss 9.11 openly without risk to our jobs and lives?
  12. Did US Muslims agree to the creation of Israel in occupied Palestine? Do we support the terrorism Israel carries out every day? Did "our" government express the slightest words of regret over the genocide in Gaza, including hundreds of children killed by the Israeli air force?
  13. We are 7 to 9 million Muslims in America. Our voice is not heard because the government projects lackey groups like CAIR-ISNA-WD-MPAC as representatives of US Muslims. Believe it or not,some of these renegades even hold Juma' prayers in the PENTAGON. They have no idea in the slightest about the message of Islam but they claim to represent Islam in America!

So now we have a Major Hasan, a Muslim, who killed 13 Amerucans at a military base from where troops are "mobilized" into iraq and Afghanistan. Islam has prohibited Muslims from fighting for a non-Muslim army against Muslims defending their countries. Hasan should not have been there in the first place. Then he seems to have become a mujahid and attacked the troops. So, now we have to say: Forgive us, we are not Muslims first, we are Americans first.

Do non-Muslim Americans support the two wars? No, they don't. They voted in Obama in the hope that he would rapidly end the wars. Instead he started a third one in Pakistan.

America is the most powerful country in the world, an imperialist-zionist power. We are being told that the killing of 13 military in Ft. Hood is a terrible tragedy for this colossus of armed might. "We" could do Fallujah and the Iraqis still did not submit. We used "daisy cutters" in Afghanistan but Shaykh Osama still did not surrender. And America cannot take the Ft. Hood attack!

This media hype is meant to re-ignite the fires of fear-and-hate which allowed Bush to rule for 8 years. Obama is rapidly becoming unpopular. His Zionist handlers are taking a page out of the Bush playbook to make him look good to the warmongers..

Jamaat al-Muslimeen [News]
Internet Attack on American Muslims by Musharraf supporters.
Life, liberty and Livelihood were in Danger.

".. Do you think that you shall enter the Garden [of Bliss] without such [trials] as came to those who passed away before you? They encountered suffering and adversity and were so shaken in spirit that even the messenger and those of faith who were with him cried 'When will come the help of Allah.' Surely the help of Allah is always near." [The Qur'an 2:214]

New Trend publishes a disclaimer in every issue that we do not endorse any kind of violence against anyone. We publish reports on the wars going on in the Muslim world but those reports are meant to increase understanding of the situation not to support or endorse the wars. We discuss jihad but that does not mean that we are involved in any armed activity. Our resistance to oppression is non-violent, patterned after the life of the Prophet, pbuh, in Makka.

In spite of all this, New Trend and Jamaat al-Muslimeen came under serious Internet attack by an individual calling himself "GI Joe" and a group calling itself "Musharraf supporters". General Musharraf was the military chief and president of Pakistan who opened Pakistan to internal occupation by US intelligence services. His attacks on mosques particularly on Lal Masjid and Jamia Hafsa are well known.

A vicious, hate filled, link was distributed all over the Internet trying to link Dr. Kaukab Siddique to terrorism and martyrdom operations. The icing on the cake was that Dr. Siddique's photo, address and phone number were published with instructions to readers to report Dr. Siddique to the FBI and to Interpol as an incipient if not actual terrorist! Information was also provided about his job location.

Thus the smear gang provided all the ammunition haters needed for a physical attack on Dr. Siddique and Islamic activists with him.

Jamaat al-Muslimeen Shoora leaders faced visits from the FBI and it seemed that attempts were being to disrupt the Jamaat's Shoora of July 25, 2009.

Alhamdulillah, no one in the Jamaat flinched and the Shoora was held as scheduled.

Our readers have traced this gang of Musharraf supporters and the Internet servers they have been using. Unless they apologize in print and without reservations, we will sue them to the fullest extent.

We affirm, that Kaukab Siddique, New Trend and Jamaat al-Muslimeen work strictly within the laws of the United States. We want the people of America to understand the wars going on, the role of America in these wars and what can be done to end the wars.

We will remain peaceful but we will resist oppression by non-violent means. We have the Qur'an and the Sunnah of the Prophet, pbuh. The victory of our teachings is assured, inshallah.

Indian Troops Kill Six Civilians. Kashmiris Protest & Cry Out

November 11, 2009. In the Baramulla area, Ari sector, near the Indo-Pak control line in Kashmir, India troops killed 6 civilians. India claimed that these were mujahideen intruders from Pakistan. However local villagers say that the six were ordinary civilians who were brutally murdered by elements of the 4th Madras regiment of the Indian army on suspicion of being Pakistanis.
There have been ongoing demonstarions in the area to protest the Indian atrocity.

Mumbai and CNN's Fareed Zakaria
Indian Propaganda being Distributed by an Indian in CNN

Dear CNN
On November 15, 2009 Mr. Fareed Zakaria broke all the rules of journalistic ethics in his extensive report on the fidayeen attack on Mumbai.
Here are a few points for your consideration if you do not want CNN to become an outlet for Indian governmernt propaganda.

1. Context was missing. Zakaria was intent on leaving out the substance of the issue which would have marred his simplistic 'good guys' vs 'bad guys' story.

2. Incredible as it seems, Zakaria did not mention the word KASHMIR even once during the program. Thus no one can understand the fundamental problem India has with Muslims. India has a 700,000 man occupation army in Kashmir.

3. Tens of thousands of Kashmiris have been killed and maimed by Indian troops in Kashmir during the last 20 years. Rape is used by the Indian army to humiliate and subjugate the people of Kashmir. Surely Zakaria knows the statistics.

4. Zakaria used taped conversations of the alleged terrorists provided him by Indian intelligence. Thus there is direct link between Indian intelligence and CNN's Zakaria which makes the entire program a propaganda piece.

5. How is one to know or authenticate that the voices provided to Zakaria by Indian intelligence are those of the mujahideen?

6. Zakaria lowered himself to the extent of showing the seriously injured surviving Pakistani in his hospital bed murmuring his guilt probably after 'persuasion' by Indian torture merchants.

Fareed Zakaria admittedly is of Indian origin and confessed during the program that his mother works at the major hotel which came under attack in Mumbai. Does CNN have no journalistic standards at all that it can present such an interested party, whose mother's office was allegedly under attack, as an objective AMERICAN reporter on the Mumbai attack?
