Don't miss Husayn al-Kurdi's unusual article on President Saddam's Final Will. Scroll way down.

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

Spotlight #1: Many people live within their traditions and established ways of life as if they are in mental prisons. They cannot live in a free world. When faced with new situations and new contexts, they become disoriented. The Qur'an and the Sunnah can guide tem, but they think their tribal and archaic ways are "Islam."

Spotlight #2: The Muslim world's dilemma can be thought about under three headings:
  1. The ignorance of the masses.
  2. Betrayal by the rulers.
  3. Betrayal by the religious scholars.
Spotlight #3: America's power structure and Israel support each other in aggression. Owing to Israeli influence in the US, we often forget that Israel is America's forward military base. Its purpose is to create divisions within the Muslim world and make American control easy. Divide and Conquer. We should look at the following facts:
  1. The creation of boundaries and borders between Arab countries.
  2. Countries created in such a way that oil wealth belongs to tiny states and small populations while big populations and lands are poverty stricken. For instance: Kuwait, UAE, Qatar, Libya, Saudi. By contrast, Egypt has nothing.
  3. Constant attempts at division: Shi'ii vs Sunni, Arab vs. Persian, tribe against tribe in Africa, Iraq, etc, nation against nation though they are all one nation..

Atlanta's Shame
Free Shifa Sadequee Campaign: Bangladesh High Court Calls it Illegal Kidnaping by the US
Photo below shows demonstrators in Atlanta protesting against the US government's bogus terrorism charges against Ehsanul Sadequee, also known as Shifa. The US has sentenced this 23 year old devotee of Allah to 17 years in prison. He was held in SOLITARY CONFINEMENT for 1300 days in an American prison before he was sentenced. That is USA's justice system.

In August 2009, the High Court Division of the Supreme court of Bangladesh declared Shifa's detention, deportation and handing over to the US authorities "illegal." [With thanks to the Justice for Shifa campaign.]

From Our Pakistan Observers:
Karachi, Pakistan in Flames: MQM and Regime Elements Probably involved. Entire Markets Wiped Out.
Prelimnary Losses Estimated at Rs. 40 billion.

On December 28, 2009 a large Shi'te procession was hit by a bomb explosion which killed 44 people and wounded 300. The processionists went on the rampage attacking nearby shops, cars, gas stations and offices. Immediately thereafter an organized effort was made by gangsters and thugs to wipe out the entire business area of old Karachi known as Boulton market.

The fire brigades of the city waited for orders which came late or did not come at all. In the meantime the economic life blood of the city was going up in flames. The city is run by a racist-gangster organization known as MQM which is aligned to the Pakistani regime and the military. It was either unwilling or unable to cope with the disaster which enveloped the economic heartland of Pakistan.

The secularist media immediately claimed that the procession had been bombed by a "suicide bomber" from the Taliban but the remains of no such bomber have been found. Attempts to blame the Pak Taliban were thwarted by the high command of the Pak Taliban which categorically rejected responsibility for the attack.

New Trend's observers say that Shi'ites have become unpopular owing to their support for the military operations in the north and connections to America and pro-US Shi'ites in Iraq. Large Shi'ite processions are seen as provocative by the population, like KKK marches in USA. Thus, our observers say, an attack on Shi'ites cast suspicion on the Taliban. However it was a move at deception; The real target was Karachi and Karachi's markets burned for three days. MQM is suspected owing to its pro-India links. Pakistan's central government is also seen as soft on India and not stopping the infiltration of Indian agents.

Letter: From New Trend reader, Cousin of Muslim Executed in China: Why China did not Relent.

We forgot to emphasis that the only reason why there was a lack of true action on the part of the British government was because my cousin was a Muslim. Also the Chinese authorities are notorious for their brutality towards the Chinese Muslims. My cousin ws a muslim so they thought why should we be lenient:

Mariam [London, England]

China Executed Muslim who needed Mental Therapy:
Islamic Law [Shariah], far superior to Chinese law and US law, Forbids Punishment for Mentally Unstable Persons

[Jamaat al-Muslimeen's was the only voice to rise against the execution from the Muslim world. China's barbaric act was questioned by the British Foreign Office who did better than Muslim rulers.]

[Excerpts from British papers follow].

URUMQI, China - Britain says China has executed a Briton convicted of drug-smuggling after rejecting a string of appeals from the British government and his relatives who say the man was mentally unstable and unwittingly lured into the crime.

The British Foreign Office issued a statement Tuesday condemning the execution of 53-year-old Akmal Shaikh. He was the first European citizen executed in China in half a century.

Shaikh first learned his death sentence would be carried out from his visiting cousins on Monday, who made a last-minute plea for his life. They say he was mentally unstable and was lured to China from a life on the street in Poland by men playing on his dreams to record a pop song for world peace.

Earlier Tuesday, China's supreme court approved the death sentence, the Xinhua news agency said.

Shaikh's family and the British government had appealed for clemency, arguing the former businessman suffers from bipolar disorder.

The supreme court rejected the appeal saying there was insufficient grounds, and that Shaikh himself did not provide evidence of that.

Shaikh was still "hopeful" when relatives met him in Urumqi this weekend, his cousin Soohail Shaikh told reporters at the Beijing airport late on Monday night.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown last week asked China not to execute Shaikh, who was born in Pakistan and moved to Britain as a boy. While not leading to any diplomatic rift, the case could harden public opinion in Britain against China.

Tricked into smuggling?
Shaikh's defenders, including British rights group Reprieve, which lobbies against the death penalty, say he was tricked into smuggling the heroin by a gang who promised to make him a pop star. Arrested in 2007, a Chinese court rejected his final appeal on December 21.

Reprieve posted on the Internet a recording Shaikh made of a song, "Come Little Rabbit," which it described as "dreadful" but which Shaikh believed would be an international hit and help bring about world peace.

He is the first European citizen to be executed in China since 1951, Western rights groups say.

"The case has been processed in accordance with the law... The defendant's litigation rights and legitimate treatment have been fully granted," Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said last week, adding that drug smuggling was considered a "grave crime" internationally.

He was convicted in 2008 after a half-hour trial. In one court appearance during his trial and appeal process, the judges reportedly laughed at his rambling remarks.

Shaikh's cousin Nasir Shaikh said Akhmal asked him during a prison visit Monday whether he had been mentioned by Britain's Queen Elizabeth in her Christmas Day speech.

"These do not seem like the kind of ramblings of a sane person fit to stand trial and ultimately receive a death sentence," said Nasir Shaikh. "With maximum respect for the People's Republic of China and for its laws and for its law institutions and its people, we make the submission that Akhmal be urgently granted a professional medical assessment before it is too late."

Last-minute appeals are almost never granted in China, which executes more people each year than all other countries combined.

"Drug smuggling is a grave crime. The rights of the defendant have been fully guaranteed," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu told a news conference last week.

The cousins were given a bag of Shaikh's belongings Monday.

Two British diplomats accompanied the cousins but said they were not authorized to speak to journalists.

"The Prime Minister has intervened personally on a number of occasions: He has raised the case with Premier Wen (Jiabao), most recently at the Copenhagen summit; and has written several times to President Hu (Jintao)," said an e-mail from the British government.

In Beijing, British Embassy spokesman David Shaw said confirmation that the execution had been carried out would come from the Foreign Office in London.

Britain has accused Chinese officials of not taking Shaikh's mental health concerns into account, with a proper psychiatric evaluation, as required by law.

Attack on the Economy of Karachi, Pakistan by Indian Agents
Judicial probe into Ashura tragedy would expose MQM . . Munawar
JI Leader says Film of Attack does not show Taliban: US War on Terror is a War on Islam. Pakistan must face Indian Threat.
Report to New Trend by Shamsuddin.

LAHORE, Dec. 31: The Ashura tragedy in Karachi was not a suicide attack but an installed bomb blast, and a judicial inquiry would only expose the MQM, Jamaat e Islami chief Syed Munawar Hasan, said on Thursday.

Addressing a big "Go America Go" rally at Sahiwal, he challenged the MQM chief Altaf Husain to show the Taliban in the film prepared of the incident.

He deplored that MQM leader Altaf, a man sitting in London, has enough agents to set the port city on fire as and when he so desired. Munawar Hasan pointed out that within a single night, provocative banners were put up all over Karachi. These banners had already been ready and everything was pre-planned, he said.

Syed Munawar Hasan asked President Zardari why the state actors were absent while Karachi was passing through the sea of fire and blood. Why did not the police and rangers control the miscreants, he asked. President Zardari, he said, was talking of dangers, but he should be sure that there was no outer threat to democracy. Instead, it was the undemocratic and irresponsible attitude of the government that endangered democracy, he added.

The JI chief said, the cowardice of the rulers had resulted in the US hold in the country. The war of terror is only a war against Islam and the Muslims, he added. He wondered why was the Pakistan government shy of dialogue with the Taliban when the US was taking that course.

He said, the Indian army chief was suffering from war phobia and was talking of killing 30 million Pakistanis within a minute. On the other hand, the Pakistani army chief was silent as the Pak army had been dragged into military operation. He called for giving a befitting reply to the Indian threats from political and military leadership at this end.

He also counseled PCB chief Ejaz Butt not to beg for cricket with India as the country needed independence and sovereignty instead of cricket.

Tribute to Saddam Hussein: The Mujahid President who Accepted Martyrdom.

by Husayn Al-Kurdi [Chicago]

This is the third anniversary of the martyrdom of Iraq President Saddam Hussein. It is an occasion to reflect on his qualities and qualifications as the greatest of Arab resisters and the most unwavering champion of the Arab nation. We may do so by citing authoritative and eloquent Islamic, Arab and even American sources, as well as the words of the man himself, as he addressed Americans and his fellow Iraqis from captivity and as he faced his martyrdom.

We will begin with the Editor of the Islamic "New Trend", Dr. Kaukab Siddique, who outlined and summarized Saddam's heroic struggle in the following terms:

"Under the most severe sanctions and embargo in the history of modern times, he kept the Iraqi people united and refused to surrender Iraq's sovereignty...
"Saddam knew that the U.S. had decided to attack Iraq with overwhelming military force but he refused to surrender. Russia offered him a chance to spend the rest of his life in luxury in a dacha in the Crimea but he refused.
"Owing to Saddam's persistent support for the Palestinian people and for martyrdom operations against Israel, every Zionist Jew in America, from professor to politician, raised a storm of dirty propaganda against him. It was evident that International Jewry would destroy Iraq.
"The choice before Saddam was to die like a lion or live like a jackal. He decided to die like a lion.
"Famed U.S. novelist (Tom) Clancy, closely connected to the military establishment, revealed that the U.S. tried to kill Saddam 33 times during the sanctions decade before the war.
"When the massive bombardment of Baghdad known as 'Shock and Awe' began, the primary target was Saddam. A superpower was trying to kill the President of a sovereign nation. Saddam decided to go down fighting.
"When the U.S. actually captured Baghdad and occupied Iraq with 135,000 heavily-armed troops with tremendous firepower, Saddam went underground and continued to lead the Resistance. The President had become the Mujahed, a first in modern Arab history! Saddam's sons and his grandson went down fighting against the occupation forces.
"After nearly nine months of fighting, the Americans captured Saddam. Among his meager possessions was a little notebook in which he kept account of every dollar he spent in the Jihad. Such was his honesty.
"During the show trial which was held to 'convict' the mujahid President, it became apparent that the charges against him were bogus. His attorneys were terrorized and the witnesses against him remained concealed. He stood strong throughout the trial, constantly seeking inspiration from the Qur'an and urging the Iraqi people to resist the occupation.
"Finally the U.S. arrived at its pre-determined plan to execute Saddam. This execution on 'Eid day was a slap in the face of the entire Islamic world.
"Saddam went to his martyrdom with a demeanor which was so calm, spiritual and full of the light of faith in Allah that people could see what a martyr is like: unafraid, focused on the honor of Iraq and the Arab and Muslim people and admonishing his Shi'ite executioners about their shameful behavior as agents of America."

Saddam's martyrdom inspired Layla Anwar, author of the blog-site "Arab Woman Blues" to address him as in these terms:

"Forgive me, Sir, I am not a very sophisticated woman. I speak a simple language, the language of the heart. No one hardly ever recognizes this dialect these days. But I have a feeling that, despite all your alleged hardness, You would.
"You know, my Dad before passing away said to me a few sentences that have remained with me since. He said 'My daughter, many things will come to pass in this life. You will face many trials and many errors. One thing you need to be certain of, though, don't ever lose your integrity or your dignity. The day you sell those, you will have sold your soul, and all is downhill from there.
"Sir, I am proud that you have not sold either. In that, you have helped us preserve our own intact. As for the rest, don't worry about them. They will end up cited as thugs, profiteering, sectarian, opportunistic hypocrites.
" What pains me most is that they succeeded in massacring yet another True Iraqi, a True Iraqi among many thousands. And that is what you are."

Saddam addressed the American people directly from his captivity in a handwritten letter dated July 7th, 2006, less than six months before his martyrdom:

"People of America, I address you not from weakness nor as a supplicant. I, my people, my brothers, comrades, my nation, we address you on the basis of our moral and human responsibility. I tell you that officials whom you know, and first among them your President, lied to you and deceived you and tricked you, using the media that portrayed Iraq to you as incorrigible and Saddam Hussein as a hateful dictator, and that his people hate him and are just waiting for their chance to get at him. Some of them just wallowed in lying falsehood to the point that they openly declared that the Iraqis would meet the invading armies with roses and celebration.
"I know that lots of people don't do a lot of analysis; they don't have the time or the ability or the desire to do careful assessments when presented with falsified news so as to uncover the truth. The American people had no chance to inquire, for example, why, if the people of Iraq hate Saddam Hussein, how he managed to defeat the Iran of Khomeini after eight years in the aggressive war that Iran sought to impose on us under the slogan of exporting the revolution beginning with Iraq? People of America, the victory over Khomeini's Iran was not due to the short length of the war, but came only after eight years of grinding warfare in which tens of thousands fell, hundreds of thousands on the Iranian side.
"If Saddam Hussein were a dictator, why did he establish a parliament with elections for the first time in the year 1980 during wartime, when there had been no parliament in Iraq since 1958? If he and his government were dictators, how could he visit schools, universities, towns and villages and spend the night with the people wherever the sun went down? How could he travel around and lead at he battle front during the day, even in the trenches in the front lines on the battlefield among the Muslim soldiers?
"Yes, esteemed ladies and gentlemen, your government deceived you, and you, or rather most of you, had no chance to inquire of themselves or of others in order to discover the truth because the Zionists in the lobby who advocated the war together with some of the centers of power were deceiving you and tricking you, hiding from your eyes the real truth, exchanging the facts for falsified and slanted information. Last but not least in this regard, if Saddam Hussein were a dictator hated and despised by his people, how is it that his people endured him and why was he chosen President by referendum?
"People of America, the misfortunes that have afflicted you and afflicted our Arab Nation and within it our heroic Iraqi people, including the breakdown of America's standing and reputation, were only caused by the reckless behavior of your government and by pressure from Zionism and power centers that influenced your government to commit those crimes and scandalous actions for specific ends that have nothing to do with the interests of the American people. The massacres and the blood flows in the streets and countryside of Iraq in torrents and the responsibility for that falls on America before all others. You know, or rather you have now come to learn, that neither the stooges whom the Americans brought in on board their aircraft or as shamefaced presents aboard their tanks, nor Iran, which pushed and still pushes forward those who support it and whom they support, would be able to cause the bloodshed or the destruction of the honor and the
property of our people and our state had not America undertaken the aggression and invasion and issued the orders, It is still issuing orders in the Green Zone. Therefore America bears the burden of all those crimes and outrages. So, will you put an end to what is going on by using the methods of direct truth without evasion and digression, or will you invite the machine of death to continue to eat away at the flesh of Iraqis and the flesh of Americans without doing anything to resolve this?"

Jeff Archer, President of the Palestine Iraq Center, distinguished American writer and investigative journalist and author of the incomparable "The Mother of All Battles", the authoritative book on the U.S. war against Iraq, brought out many little-know facts about Saddam's Arab Ba'ath Socialist Party-led government and its accomplishments in the face of the obstacles imposed by Imperialist and Zionist assaults. Besides the monumental advances in education, literacy, medicine, housing, women's rights and the welfare of children and the elderly, Archer noted:

"Many western observers are not aware that Saddam Hussein was well-regarded in much of the world. Brazilians remember that thousands of their countrymen were recruited by Saddam to build the advanced highway and bridge systems that once crisscrossed Iraq. Egyptians did not forget that two million of their countrymen owned and worked land in Iraq prior to January 1991.
"The Lebanese remembered the dozens of Iraqi trucks that showed up daily at the Lebanese border during that country's civil war. They were laden with food and clothing for any Lebanese person in need. The convoys' recipients included all Lebanese, not just certain factions of those battling in the civil war. Most Palestinians display a picture of Saddam Hussein on their walls. Over the years, many nations have temporarily supported the Palestinian cause, only to withdraw aid once threatened by the U.S. Saddam Hussein, even during the embargo years, supported the Palestinians with no exception, while other Arab regimes did not want to get involved because they did not want to upset their puppeteers in Washington and Tel Aviv."

In his Final Will, dated 26 December 2006, four days before his execution, Saddam displayed his magnanimity and his steely resolve and commitment to Iraq and the pursuit of social justice and liberation. Speaking to the Iraqi people, he exhorted them in the following fashion:

"The enemies of your country, whether they are invaders or Persians, found that (your) unity prevented them from enslaving you. Thus they drove their old-new wedge in the midst of you and the foreigners with Iraqi nationality responded; the hearts of these foreigners were wither already full of hatred or the envious in Iran filled them with hatred.
"They thought (that) they would vanquish you through sowing division between you and the true sons of the people in order to weaken the will and turn the sons of the country against each other rather than turn them against the real enemies. In order to confront the real enemies, we all have to pull together, even if we act under different banners...
"Brothers, mujahideen and fighters, I call on you to do this, and to abandon malice, because malice does not leave the one who harbors it any chance to be fair and just, and because it closes the minds. Malice takes the one who harbors it away from balanced thinking, correct choices, avoiding what is wrong, and prevents him from seeing the changes in the minds of those he thinks to be enemies, especially the delinquent ones who repent and go back to the true path, the path of the true people and the glorious nation.
"Brothers and sisters, my sons and sons of Iraq, comrade strugglers, I call on you not to hate the peoples of the countries that have committed aggression on us. I call on you to distinguish between the decision-makers and the people. Hate only the deed. Even if someone's deeds deserve to be fought, do not hate him as a human being. Do not hate the individuals who do evil, hate only the evil deed itself, and repel that evil as it deserves."

Layla Anwar summarizes the purport of Saddam's life, struggle and martyrdom as he approached the hour of supreme sacrifice:

"They say you were authoritarian and totalitarian. Come and see them now. See their fascism infesting the streets. See it in every neighborhood, see it in every corner. You said Women are the pioneers of this Arab Ummah, come and look at us now. Rape has replaced sexual intercourse, censorship has replaced education and forced domestication has replaced public life.
"You said Education is the sign of a Progressive Ummah. Our schools and universities are empty, and our brains drained and killed. You said Health is Free for all. Our hospitals are dilapidated and our doctors in exile. You said Kurds are our brothers, they are now trained as snipers by Israel. You said Christians and Muslims are part of this mosaic called Iraq. The Christians are fleeing by the thousands and the churches are deserted.
"Look at me Sir. I am a product of this wonderful mosaic called Iraq. I am half Muslim and half Christian, and the Muslim half has Shi'as and if you dig hard enough you will find Kurdish, Armenian, Turkish, Chaldean, Arabic roots all the way back...
"Where is my place now Sir? You are about to find your place soon, like a bird flying to nest into the arms of the sky, while I am left behind waiting my turn, and in the meantime searching, desperately searching for a place to rest my tired head, and finding none.
"Sir, I heard they will execute You within 36 hours, in time for the 'Eid, our sacrificial feast. You did say you are willing to be sacrificed for Iraq. You still believe they are worth it. I envy your Faith. May you go in Peace now, my True Iraqi."

Such a one as Saddam Hussein will never die. He will always live in the hearts and souls of the honest, suffering, dispossessed people, wherever people face slavery and oppression and whenever they fight for justice and dignity. He will abide forever, long after the Bushes, Clintons, Obamas and the predatory denizens of Congress, the Pentagon, the CIA, the State Department and Wall Street have gone to the final and lasting hell which they deserve, long after the exploiters and oppressors and their minions have rotted into oblivion.

Saddam Hussein will remain and endure as a shining light, an immortal in the pantheon of the truly great, a testament and an example to all that we could be, should be and need to be if we indeed seek to better ourselves and our world.

The Americans Who Came to Pakistan and were Arrested on Info from FBI via CAIR Violation of the Fundamental Rights and The Constitution
by Khalid Khawaja [Pakistan]

It seems that 6 Americans who were picked up from Sargodha have lost all their fundamental rights as a human beings. If they were from black water, christians, jews, enlightened moderates or infidels, the whole world would have created havoc with our government and they would have been free the first day, but just because they are known as committed Muslims believing in Jehad, all the local and foreign champions of human rights have become dumb about their rights. Whether they have committed any crime or not, but certainly the American government and our government have committed the crime of violating the constitution by taking away their following fundamental rights.

Sec.10/1 of chapter 1 says

10. Safeguards as to arrest and detention.
No person who is arrested shall be detained in custody without being informed, as soon as may be, of the grounds for such arrest, nor shall he be denied the right to consult and be defended by a legal practitioner of his choice

These people were captured on 9th of December and until now even the FIR has not been given in spite of the high court order and they are not only absolutely denied the right to consult and be defended by a legal practitioner but they have not been given a chance to meet anybody and nobody knows what is happening to them.

Sec. 10/2 of chapter 1 says
(2) Every person who is arrested and detained in custody shall be produced before a magistrate within a period of twenty-four hours of such arrest, excluding the time necessary for the journey from the place of arrest to the court of the nearest magistrate, and no such person shall be detained in custody beyond the said period without the authority of a magistrate

These people were taken in custody on 9th December and were not produced before any magistrate till 16th December after the high court orders in my petition. They were certainly in the illegal detention from about one week which is a clear violation of their fundamental rights.

Sec 20 of chapter 1 says

These people claim to be muslims with a strong commitment to Jehad. Their commitment to Jehad is being portrayed as a crime although no muslim can claim to be a muslim without believing in Jehad. Our government is over all dealing with Jehad as if it is a crime and not differentiating between Jehad and terrorism and anybody who believes in Jehad is considered a terrorist which is an outright violation of Sec.20.

Sec.25 says
As constitution says Equality of citizens.
(1) All citizens are equal before law and are entitled to equal protection of law.

These people are being discriminated because of their beliefs. There were many Americans arrested for committing various crimes but immediately released because they were not committed muslims and they have extra rights which are supposed to be with no others.

These people were surely interrogated by American government in first one week of their illegal detention, therefore American government and our government both are responsible for the violation of their human rights. I called Mr. Richard the spokesman of American ambassador in Pakistan and asked him to explain to me whether it was the official policy of the American government to indulge in this kind of discrimination with their citizens and completely deny all human rights to muslims. He had no answer to my questions but he promised that he will convey my concerns to the ambassador but he never reverted back.

We Appeal to all Human Right NGO's and civil society organizations specially in America to ensure that their fellow citizens are not treated with discrimination and get all the rights which are given to them in constitution of America and Pakistan. Every body is supposed to be considered innocent till proven guilty, at least their must be some people in the world willing to help these youngsters until they are really proven guilty.

If we start arresting only on the intentions than the Interior Minister of Sindh Mr. Zulfiqar Mirza just yesterday openly announced they wanted and planned to break Pakistan and Hi-jack an aircraft. If these boys are to be treated this way than what to be done with Mr. Zulfiqar Mirza as constitution says.

25. Equality of citizens.
(1) All citizens are equal before law and are entitled to equal protection of law.

It can be said that at least now they are being treated according to law as they are on 20 days remand given by the magistrate and than there are lot many ways to keep the victims depriving them of all their fundamental rights as was done with me, where as the constitution says.
