"Follow (O men!) the revelation given unto you from your
Lord, and follow not, as friends or protectors, other than
Him. Little it is ye remember of admonition. How many towns
have We destroyed (for their sins)? Our punishment took them

rest. When (thus) Our punishment took them, no cry did they
utter but this: "Indeed we did wrong." Then shall we
question those to whom Our message was sent and those by
whom We sent it. And verily, We shall recount their whole
story with knowledge, for We were never absent (at any time

Waves of Zionist Attacks Defame Dr. Siddique & Lincoln
University Across America.
Media in Israel Join the Propaganda Campaign.
It all began on September 3, when Dr. Kaukab Siddique
made an impromptu speech against Israel at Dupont Circle in
Washington, DC. Someone videotaped it and it appeared on the
"anti-terrorism" web site of notorious Islam hater Steve
From there, a woman, Debra Burlingame, claiming to
represent 9.11 victims picked it up and sent it with her
bigoted comments to a number of professors at Lincoln
Dr. Siddique responded to Ms. Burligame's email and
copied it to all 94 faculty at Lincoln University.
Mr. Stackelbeck , a CBN reporter, urged Dr. Siddique
to answer questions about anti-semitism and Lincoln
On September 19, Dr. Siddique sent Stackelbeck a
detailed reply which was then sent to all Lincoln University
professors. A good number of professors congratulated Dr.
Siddique on his response.
Stackelbeck ignored almost all of Dr. Siddique's reply
and published a defamatory report on Siddique which was
posted on the Christian Broadcasting Network [CBN].
Stakelbeck's CBN report led to an explosion of abuse
and invective against Dr, Siddique on right wing media
programs across the country.
The Philadelphia Daily News [10.21, the Philadelphia
Inquirer [10.22] and the Lincolnian Online [10.22]
published balanced reports which indicated that Dr. Siddique
is strongly against Israel but is not anti-semitic.
A Jewish paper on October 21 tried to change the topic
by claiming Dr. Siddique is not only against Israel but also
denies the holocaust. The paper indicates that a whole list
of Pennsylvania law makers and representatives have lined up
against Lincoln University and Dr. Siddique and are
pressuring the president of Lincoln to ensure that
Siddique's views are not "seeping" into the classes he
On it's main page, the "Tea Party," an extreme right
wing coalition, condemned Dr. Siddique and claimed that he
wants Jews to be killed. [10.21]
Israeli media, Israel News, Ynet, etc have joined the
attacks on Dr. Siddique. [10.22]
Israel's main "moderate" paper Ha'aretz carried the
Muslim Activists Meet for Open Discussion on Crisis facing
Dr. Siddique Calls for Peaceful but Firm Response to Defeat
Africa, The Richest Continent in the World, will Join
Resurgence of Islam, inshallah
On October 23, Dr. Kaukab Siddique was the keynote speaker
at a dinner gathering of activists and organizers for social
justice, held near Annapolis, MD. Twenty-five Muslims from
various mosques as well as autonomous peace activists,
mostly young men and women (plus a popular baby), and 2
non-Muslims turned up for a delicious dinner.
Most of the guests commented on the issues and there was a
brief Q&A session as well. Here are the main points made by
· America is undergoing a "dumbing down" process.
Communication in the language of politics or ideology is
being replaced by F words. The forces of good are losing all
over America while the forces of evil are ascendant.
· Perhaps America is going the way of other empires
based on slavery and war. We should try to save those who
want to come out of this morass.
· Islam does not use force to attack the followers
of any religion. There is no Islamic radical anywhere who
teaches that Jews, Christians or any other religion's
followers should be killed or fought because of their
religion or their race,
· Muslims are fighting back because of the
occupation of their lands by foreign forces in Palestine,
Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Kashmir, Chechnya and now parts
· US Muslims must work strictly within the limits
of the law. We must use peaceful means but use of peaceful
means does not mean compromise with exploiters or
cooperation with oppressors, even in the slightest.
· The example of the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, in
Makka, is the key to our existence in America. He did not
build multi-million dollar mosques or seek the support of
oppressors and wrongdoers. He did not seek to build his
dunya and become rich.
· A major blunder of CAIR and other regime
supporters has been their efforts to woo the people in
power. The oppressors simply put their petitions in the
trash. These are the enemies of the people, both the
American people and those overseas.
· Allah Almighty rebuked even the Prophet, pbuh,
for talking to the chiefs and for frowning when a blind man
who really wanted Islam stumbled into the gathering. [See
Sura 80: "He frowned and turned away."]
· Why do we frown at the poor and the exploited and
the oppressed? Why do we love the rich, the exploiters, the
entertainers, those who are part of the power structure?
· Israel must be dismantled. Language like "rise
up," "down with," death to," "dismantle," "destroy," used in
rallies and demonstrations is not aimed at creating violence
against individuals. It is the language of mobilization and
· Those who rally and chant slogans are appealing
to the better side of America and the Zionist Jews, urging
them to see what the world feels about them.
· Those who want to kill you don't hold rallies.
Have you ever heard of the Taliban holding rallies against
· Africa is strategically most important in the
upsurge of Islam. It is the richest continent in the world.
Niger has uranium. South Africa has gold. Congo has
diamonds. Africa belongs to Islam.
· The European influences in Africa have left
millions suffering and dying of AIDS in non-Muslim parts of
the continent. British influences brought teenage pregnancy
to entire girl populations of villages in Kenya.
· By contrast Islamic countries which accepted
Shar'ia, such as northern Nigeria have negligible impact of
AIDS. European influences are changing this in Lagos and
other big cities.
· [In reference to Zionist attacks on Dr. Siddique,
he advised firm but clear expressions against attempts to
create censorship and to abridge academic freedom.]
· Finally he cautioned against accepting conspiracy
theories about the 9.11 attacks. We must face the fact that
a war is going on and unless we study it, we can't explain
ways to end it.
Pakistan: Islamic leader criticizes silent Muslim armies.
Peaceful Islamic Movements are Defying Western Moves
By Shamsuddin (Lahore, Pakistan)
LAHORE, Oct. 24: The Jamaat e Islami chief, Syed Munawar
Hasan, has stressed upon the parties in the ruling alliance
to review their priorities and serve Pakistan instead of
Asif Ali Zardari. Talking to media at Mansoora at a wedding
ceremony, he said that corruption and commission were being
protected and the parties posing to be democratic, were
negating democratic norms and justice.
Syed Munawar Hasan said that although the Muslim Ummah was
passing through a crisis yet the Ummah had successfully
faced the enemy on the military, science and technology
fronts. At the same time, the Muslims masses had been
struggling against their rulers who were slaves. He said to
be a true Muslim was seen as a major crime by the West. The
Muslims were being branded as terrorists and their blood was
being shed while over 57 Muslim governments and their armies
were not only silent but were supporting the enemy. The
resources of the Muslims were being used by the non-Muslims.
He said, under these circumstances, the unarmed Muslim
masses in Kashmir, Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan had faced
the colonial powers. In Afghanistan, the enemy was begging
for dialogue, and withdrawal of the NATO and US troops from
July, 2011 was under consideration. He said a
military operation in North Waziristan under US pressure
would be a victory for US and India as the situation in the
country would get out of control.
The JI chief slated Islamabad's silence on Kashmir issue.
The Kashmiris, he said, were fighting Pakistan's war and
but the Pakistan government had stopped even their moral and
diplomatic support and had thus surrendered its life line.
Opposing US mediation on the Kashmir issue, he said,
Washington had always been pro-India and it had already
signed a nuclear pact with New Delhi but was objecting to
Pak-China civil nuclear agreement. Thus, the US had its
double standards which should be rejected. Former JI
chief, Qazi Husain Ahmed and other senior party leaders were
also present at the wedding.
UN double standards have disappointed Muslim masses.
Liaqat Baluch Challenges UN to look at Role of India, Israel
LAHORE, Oct. 24: The Jamaat e Islami Secretary General,
Liaquat Baloch, has said that the United Nations
Organization, during its 65 years of existence, had failed
to resolve international issues in the light of its Charter
and its partial role especially on Palestine and Kashmir
issues had disappointed the Muslim masses.
In a message on Sunday, marking the completion of the world
body's 65 years of existence, Liaquat Baloch said the
Kashmiri and Palestinian Muslims were facing state terrorism
of India and Israel under the umbrella of the US. The UN and
the world body violated human rights and justice by
protecting the interests of the non-Muslim world against
that of the Muslims. The US, British and their Western
allied forces had killed millions of the Muslims in Iraq and
Afghanistan by committing aggression in blatant violation of
international laws but the UN stood as a silent spectator,
and thus was it equally shared the blame.
He said the US, India and Israel were persistently violating
international laws and world forums but a resolution adopted
against these were never implemented. On the other hand,
any resolution adopted against any Muslim state or
individual was immediately put into action. This double
standard of the UN was quite obvious and it was in the
interest of the UN and the world peace that sincere efforts
were made to resolve the Kashmir and Palestine issues.
Pakistan: War News
General Kayani Gets $2 billion to Crush Islamic Resistance.
Earlier, $7.5 billion was granted for Civilian "projects"
CNN October 22: "The Obama administration announced a $2
billion, multiyear security assistance package Friday to
help Pakistan fight extremists taking refuge in safe havens
along its border with Afghanistan.
The five-year package would pay for military hardware and
equipment Pakistan needs for the counterinsurgency fight,
Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton said. It is subject to congressional approval, and
complements the $7.5 billion in civilian projects approved
by Congress last year.
"The United States has no stronger partner when it comes to
counterterrorism efforts against the extremists who threaten
us both than Pakistan," Clinton said.
Pak Taliban Attack Paki troops in Orakzai
October 22: Pak Taliban attacked a military convoy of the
Paki army in upper Orakzai area. A senior Pakistan officer,
a colonel, was killed, along with 5 of his troops. Another 3
were wounded. [The army had claimed months back that it has
"cleared" Orakzai of the Pak Taliban who support the Afghan
Taliban and are located right on the border.]
For Educational Purposes
Is it true that the Taliban are talking to Karzai's people.
"Peace talks in conditions of the presence of foreign forces
are meaningless and futile."
Interview with Maulavi Abdul Kabir, member of the Leadership
Council of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and the
Coordinating Chief of the Eastern Provinces: Peace talks in
conditions of the presence of foreign forces are meaningless
Q: Recently, the Head of the Kabul Administration, Karzai,
announced establishment of a set-up under the name of peace
high council, consisting of 69 persons including chiefs of
former factions, other famous figures and former officials
of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. What is your view
about the establishment of the peace council, its importance
and the effectiveness of its members and the council's role
in bringing about peace in the country?
A: Foundation of Jirgas and mutual deliberation is an
accepted norm among the Afghans. It is an institution
traditionally utilized for the resolution of internal
disputes and issues. But the said peace council is a
one-sided entity, having been established to protect their
unilateral goals and interests. The council consists of
people who practically support the Americans, though they
claim being Jihadic figures and leaders. But by siding with
the American invaders, they have forfeited their credibility
in the eyes of the Afghans which they once enjoyed during
the era of the former Soviet Union's invasion of
Afghanistan. Similarly, some persons who were once officials
of the Islamic Emirate, have been given membership in the
peace council but they are not in the capacity to represent
the Islamic Emirate. They themselves are living under the
eyes and surveillance of the Americans.
Q: Your reaction to every initiative of peace is usually
negative and, instead you emphasize on the use of force. Do
you not think that this posturing portrays your weakness in
the diplomatic filed?
A: In Afghanistan, in the current condition, only those
efforts of peace and reconciliation are pragmatic which
surely leads to withdrawal of the foreign invading forces
from Afghanistan and pave the way for establishment of an
Islamic system in the country. This objective can't be
achieved in conditions of presence of foreign forces in the
Q: During the reign of the Islamic Emirate, severe fighting
took place in areas, north of Kabul and other northern
provinces of the country. Thousands of armed men lost their
lives as a result. Many of them were detained and tortured.
Thus, it would have created mistrust between you and the
hostility would have still been existing. What steps have
you taken to resolve these problems and usher in an
atmosphere of confidence instead? Do you intend to take
certain measures to achieve that goal.
A: This fact is clear as the broad day light that the
Islamic Emirate has never fought on tribal, ethnical and
geographical basis. During the government of the Islamic
Emirate, people of all ethnicities had participation in the
government and movement including in northern parts of the
country. Currently, the Islamic Emirate has presence both in
the north, south and other parts of the country with formal
organizational set-ups being in place in every province. You
pointed to Islamic Emirate's antagonism during its reign in
the north of the country; I would like to explain that the
Islamic Emirate has never fought against the people in the
north nor it harbors any kind of enmity on the basis of
ethnicity and geographical location. Rather it has fought
against that elements who were hurling hurdles in the way of
noble objectives of the Islamic Emirate like establishment
of country-wide peace and formation of an Islamic system in
the country. Similarly, the Islamic Emirate has fought
against self-same elements in the south that were considered
as stumbling blocks in the way of peace and establishment of
an Islamic government. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan
regards all Afghans as being equal with no discrimination.
We call on all pious people in the north of the country and
on all other countrymen to strengthen the strongholds of
Jihad against the invaders further more and foil the overt
and covert conspiracies and plans of the enemy.
Q: Some interesting points had been included in the message
of Mullah Mohammad Omar Mujahid on the eve of the Eid,
including details about characteristics of government system
in the country. Among them, devolvement of responsibilities
and posts on the basis of professionalism and expertise is
worth mentioning. Other points spoke of creating a
consultative system. Would you please highlight a little
further by touching on the requirements needed to qualify a
person to hold a post in the framework of the Islamic
Emirate, namely would that include other people with modern
education and professions rather than the students of
Madrassa's and religious scholars?
A: Even during the reign of the Islamic Emirate, the
professional people were not disregarded but had had
participation in the government. Only Taliban and religious
scholars were appointed to some higher slots. The rest were
professional officials who were serving the country. The
Islamic Emirate will endeavor more than ever if it gained
power with the help of the Almighty Allah, to appoint more
professional cadres in the government. As to your mentioning
that would the advantage for appointment in a post be
limited only to a Talib or a religious scholar, I would like
to say. No. Never. The prerequisite for that is piety and
capacity. Any one can have these qualitificiations to become
proper candidate for work in the framework of the Islamic
Emirate of Afghanistan.
Q: Any government that may be established in Afghanistan,
should have a comprehensive policy to maintain good
relations with the neighboring countries and that the
neighbors may not sense danger from them. This is necessary
for stability of any government in Afghanistan. Does the
Islamic Emirate has any practical plan in this regard and
would it assure the neighboring countries that it would not
resort to any action against them but rather would follow a
policy of the principle of mutual respect?
A: We are Muslims. A Muslim knows the rights of a neighbor
in the light of Islam. During its reign, the Islamic Emirate
had tried to establish good relations with neighboring
countries. No one can ever produce any evidence to show that
we had created problems for the neighbors. Even in these
critical conditions that we are passing through, no neighbor
including Pakistan and Iran has evidence to prove that we
have intervened in their internal affairs. The esteemed
Amir-ul-Mominnee has touched on this topic in details in his
messages. It is our official policy.
Q: Some times, we hear rumors claiming that the leadership
of Taliban is engaged in peace talks with the Americans and
the Kabul administration. They say, the talks were held
first in a certain country, then in another given country.
Moreover, media reports refer to your role that you have
willingness to engage in peace negotiation. Who circulate
these amours and what is their objective?
A: No doubt, the Americans have faced defeat at the military
field. All their stratagems have gone awry. Now the
Americans and their allies are making efforts to have some
gains in the diplomatic field. Therefore, they launch
spurious efforts under the name of reconciliation and peace
time and again. They are trying to produce some fabricated
indications in order to give cosmetic leverage to their
claims. They mention names of a few members of the
leadership of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, saying,
they have had contacts with them or at least, shown
willingness to initiate negotiation. In fact, all these are
futile propaganda of the invaders aimed at creating mistrust
between the Muslims and the Mujahideen. You know the enemy
have not produced any evidence despite many claims to
indicate that the officials of the Islamic Emirate of
Afghanistan were engaged in talks with them. Nor they are
able to produce one. This explains that the talks have not
taken place nor the officials of the Islamic Emirate are
intending to engage in the talks.

Somali Islamic Movement Makes an Unusual Move Against the
Indeed, all praise is due to Allah, and peace and blessings
upon the commander of the Mujahideen, Muhammad, and upon his
family and companions. As for what follows:
In the era that we live in, financial transactions have
greatly been expanded, communities and states have opened up
to each other, faith and religious commitments have
deteriorated, fraud surfaced and economic issues have
re-emerged; stock markets, banking transactions, economic
principles, such as capitalism, materialized and usury
In contrast to all this, the Muslims have turned away from
the application of the Shari'ah of Allah, including the
Islamic economic system and began to emulate the West in
their financial transactions. The Islamic law, however, is
there to safeguard the interests of the people and regulate
their transactions for the preservation of their rights and
the removal of injustice. Therefore, the Prophet prohibited
dishonesty in dealing with
transactions, inflation of prices, ambiguous deals and
monopoly - just as the Prophet has also
forbidden consuming people's wealth unlawfully and the
exploitation of their needs.
The control that the Jews have over the financial system in
the West and the spread of the so-called economic
globalization is not hidden to anyone. It is well known that
this system was set up in order to serve the Jewish state
and Western interests in all parts of the world; to enrich
western nations at the expense of vulnerable, oppressed and
the poor people; to implement the policy of having a hand in
the global economy and controlling it for their own benefit;
and to execute plans and projects to get out of the
successive crises witnessed by their economy. Falling under
the category of the projects that were spread under economic
globalization is the launching of the Mobile Money Transfer
(MMT) service in hopes of finding an outlet from the current
economic crisis experienced by the infidel West.
The MMT service entered Somalia under the trademark
"Zaad/Sahal" on the basis of enabling the Muslim Somali
people to transfer money through mobile phones for
purchasing, payment of bills, purchase of calltime, and
other financial transactions in a fast, cheap and easy
manner. This service was launched by three companies; Hormud
in Mogadishu, Golis in Bossaaso, and Telesom in Hargeisa.
The MMT service has spread at an enormous pace due to the
efforts of the Western nations which are being led by the
United States of America. It has worked to support this
service in various ways and to spread it outside its
territory and amongst the Somaliexpatriates in order for
them to rely on it in sending money back to their home
countries. Private financial transfers sent by expatriates
to their countries of origin is the second largest source of
external financing for so-called developing countries after
direct foreign investment. Based on that, their target in
spreading the MMT service should be considered as a very
calculated and plannedway to control the wealth of the
Muslims and their economy. Thus, this service is
significantly prominent in developing countries while it is
virtually non-existent in the United States of America.
After studying, analyzing and investigating the effects of
this service upon the Muslim Somali community since its
inception, the seriousness and level of impact of this
service upon the wealth of the Muslims became very clear.
The hidden ambitions and
bjectives of this service serve the interests of the Zionist
Crusader movement throughout the world against the Muslims
and the poor nations. The research noted the following
Control over the economy of poor peoples and its depletion
and exploitation: The companies that sponsor this service
concentrate their efforts on developing countries in Africa
and Asia, whereupon they introduce their easy and express
services to the people in those countries in order to enable
them to facilitate money transfers. This, in turn, makes
them hostages to this service in all their financial
activity and it exploits the needs of the middle class and
Enforcing economic dependency and monopolization: The MMT
service was the result of an agreement between telecom
companies and international banks with the mediation of
MasterCard's financial transactions. They all worked
together in the spirit of monopoliziation to make sure that
the market, with all of its various transactions, is
controlled by their regulations. This diminishes the
liquidity of funds and spreads subordination and the entire
society becomes a prisoner of the infidel West.
Threatening the economic security of the Muslims: This
service stands against the security of Muslims, especially
the Mujahideen in that it takes part in the so-called fight
against financing terrorism which is taken as a pretext to
infringe upon the rights of Muslims and their freedoms; to
interfere in all their financial movements; to closely
monitor these movements and thereby tighten their grip on
them; and to threaten them whenever those behind this
service choose and however they choose.
Presenting the risk of the collapse, or suspension, of the
corporate sponsors for this service: This service could be
stopped by order of the Western politicians based upon one
argument or another, as occurred previously with the bank,
"Barakat." They could also face bankruptcy because of the
global financial crisis, which would cost the Muslim people
Presenting the risk . The vulnerability of mobile phones for
breaches by the so-called "hacker" has dire consequences,
and makes people easy prey.
Withdrawing liquid funds from the market: The risk of
removing liquid funds from the market is one of the most
serious implications for the use of service (MMT). It is
designed primarily to provide liquidity and absorb the funds
to invest in projects which will turn the Western wheel of
economy, which now lies in ruins because of erroneous and
oppressive Western policies.
Destroying the hawala system in the target countries: The
spread of this service disrupts the hawala system which
people commonly use in their dealings. This service will
gradually eliminate the hawala system in its entirety,
making it easy to limit financial transfers to the MMT
Linking the people completely with the corporate sponsor of
the service: As the scope of the spread of the MMT service
expands, the fate of the funds of thousands of people will
become integrally linked to the company sponsors. The fate
of this money will become affected by any changes made by
these sponsors and it will become subservient to their
offers and policies.
After affirming the existence of the clear risks of dealing
with the MMT service, the Department of Politics & Wilaayaat
of Harakat Al-Shabaab al-Mujahideen has decided the
The use of the MMT service will be discontinued in all parts
of Somalia - and the companies that offer these services,
specifically Hormuud, Telesom and Golis, must stop dealing
with this service. And we expect that all companies, agents
and customers who are using the service (ZAAD/SAHAL) in all
parts of Somalia will comply with the decision.
The companies that deal with this service have an
opportunity until 24-02-1432 Hijri corresponding to
31.01.2011 in order to discharge what they have of
obligations relating to this service, whether the
obligations are for them or against them.
We warn all companies that intend to introduce similar
services to Somalia to refrain from such actions.
This decision is valid from the date of the announcement of
In conclusion, we emphasize upon the Muslims in Somalia to
liberate themselves from the dependency and subjugation to
the West and to search for other legal and safer
alternatives, such as factories, exporting local produce,
etc. or any other such projects that benefit the Muslim
economy. We also reassure them that we will not relent in
protecting them and their wealth from any danger that
surrounds them by the help and grace of Allah.
