Hadith of the Week
Be Kind to non-Muslim Relatives too!
Narrated Asma' bint Abu Bakr
My mother came to me,
hoping (for my favor)
during the lifetime of theProphet . I asked the Prophet,
"May I treat her kindly?" He replied, "Yes." Ibn 'Uyaina
"Then Allah revealed:
'Allah forbids you not with regards to those who fought not
against you because of religion, and drove you not out from
that you should show
them kindness and deal justly with them.'.. .....

Two of my fellow graduates
of Wayne State University
in Detroit are abroad looking into the situation of Syrian
Neda Kadri, a Syrian first generation American from
Dearborn, Michigan is currently in Greece as part of a
volunteer group that is helping rafts full of people onto
shore and assisting with immediate aid such as mittens and
blankets. Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian first generation
American from Southwest Detroit and former Michigan
Congresswoman, is part of a delegation visiting refugee
camps in Lebanon along with Ali Saleh, the mayor of Bell,
Michigan. They are doing a brilliant job bringing light to
the American people regarding the desperate yet seemingly
permanent situation of Syrian refugee families.
"Most days are 15 plus hours of nonstop work. I haven't even
yet processed what I'm experiencing," Neda Kadri messaged
me. "I've never felt as alive as I do on this island. I've
found my calling and it is I that is grateful for the
opportunity to serve!"
The volunteer group, whom celebrity Susan Sarandon joined
for a day, waits by the shore for rafts full of refugees.
People in wetsuits wade into the frigid water to bring
people ashore. The weather is cold, but this has not stopped
the influx of refugees. As each raft lands, the people shout
"Allahu Akbar!" and help the people onto land. Many rafts
arrive every day. When it is pouring rain and these people
have no shelter. People can hand out blankets but at a
certain point, everything is soaking wet.
"We are deeply concerned because hundreds of refugees and
migrants are continuing to arrive despite the winter cold,"
said Boris Cheshirkov, the UNHCR spokesperson on Lesbos.
Cheshirkov said that in the first three weeks of 2016, more
than 20,000 people have arrived after crossing the
Mediterranean, more than the total numbers of arrivals for
the first five months of 2015. "It's an incredibly desperate
situation. Yesterday alone, on January 20, we saw about 40
boats, overloaded rubber dinghies, amid ice cold winds, with
snow and rough seas, coming through this perilous journey
from Turkey to Greece to seek safety," Cheshirkov said.
Please feel free to contribute funds to provide basic
necessities to people landing on shore.
https://www.gofundme.com/85evvexn There is no government,
nor NGO, who is doing this. This is a totally volunteer
group relying on your donations to help each Syrian person
arriving on a raft.
Meanwhile. Rashida Tlaib visited Shatila refugee camp of
Palestinians that had to flee their homes in 1949 and 1969.
The delegation from Michigan not only observed but played
with the children, some of whom were wearing flip flops in
the snow. The delegation traveled about two hours from
Beirut over the snowy mountains to the border of Syria, in
the Bekaa Valley. They found a small camp full of Syrian
refugee families being housed in temporary shacks. Some have
lived there for nearly 5 years.
"Their stories deserve to be told individually. Like Hajji
who is 9 years old but is smaller than an average 5 year old
and healthcare is really implossible. Or Zeinab who is an
orphan and is mothering (pretty darn well) her younger
brother and has more dignity and honor than I can fathom.
And Yisra who is embarrassed she has worn the same pink
outfit for 3 yrs and can sing her ABCs so well," writes
"My heart broke today. This is beyond a crisis," reported
Rashida Altlaib. "When we pulled up to Barelias Syrian
Refugee Camp in Bekaa Valley, it was three large fields of
tent homes. So many children, beautiful children who are
more than statistics spewed out in the news and policy
briefs we are given. The health clinic coordinator said he
never seen people like us who just stopped and played with
the kids, but really looked at them and listened. The tears
won't stop when I think of those precious faces. May Allah
protect them and give them strength, Ya Rab." The group also
visited Burj el Barajneh refugee camp in Lebanon.
"Met with U.S. Ambassador to Egypt, Stephen Beecroft. Most
people think of the pyramids when Egypt is mentioned, it is
so much more. One of four Arabs in the world are Egyptian
and the instability in the country can impact the rest of
the world because of the importance of the Suez Canal,"
posted the Mayor Ali Saleh, of Bell, Michigan.
The Arab American Institute delegation held a panel forum at
the American University of Cairo on public policy and the
experience of serving as Arab Americans in our communities.
Rashida took some photos of Shatila Refugee Camp, which
demonstrate a serious need for electric rewiring.
"Over the past 4 years, I've been touched and deeply
saddened by the Syrian refugees suffering due to the war in
their country. Yesterday, the Arab American Institute
delegation #aaiusa visited a refugee
camp in the border area of Lebanon in the Bekaa Valley. None
of us were prepared to the human tragedy we've witnessed no
matter how many pictures/ videos we've seen, articles we've
read or conversations we've had about it.
"Hearing from Zeinab how both of her parents were killed in
the war, and how she fled Aleppo with her grandmother and
uncle is heartbreaking. Zeinab and her friend Aya insisted
that I have a cup of tea in their tents.
"Hajji is 8 years old boy looks like a 5 years old due to a
disease. His mother has desperately talked to every agency
that visits the camp to no avail. A mobile "pharmacy" , a
doctor and two nurses visit the camp once a month to provide
medical care. As moving as these pictures are, the tragedy
is much bigger to be depicted in pictures, videos or even

Pakistan: National Trauma As Pak Taliban Attack Secularist
University. Retaliation for the Bombing of Islamic schools
is reaching Pakistani "settled" areas.
by New Trend's media monitor.
On January 20, four young men attacked Bacha Khan University
in Charsadda, not far from Mardan.
The only resistance came from a professor who fired back at
the Pak Taliban but was shot down.
At least 21 people were killed and scores injured before
elite Pakistani troops arrived and killed the 4.
The university was in the middle of celebrations of the
anniversary of Abdul Ghaffar Khan also known as Bacha Khan,
the leader of Pakistan's leading movement to oppose the
Islamic basis of Pakistan. The Pak Taliban have been
attacked the Bacha Khan supporters through their influence
in the Pakistan army.
The Pakistani army has killed more than 2,000 supporters of
the Taliban during the last year and a half.
The army evicted the ENTIRE population of North Waziristan
during Ramadan and left them out in blazing sun for a year.
During the last six months. the army has brought back some
of the population back to their homes after careful
scrutiny, somewhat in the style of the US army after it
destroyed Fallujah. in Iraq.

On January 22, general Asim Bajwa admitted that the 4
assailants were helped by 4 local people, one of whom worked
as a mason at the university and made its map for the 4.

Thousands of homes raided by regime. State repression in
Egypt worst in decades, says activist.
- Campaigning journalist Hossam Bahgat speaks out amid
further crackdown as fifth anniversary of uprising
approaches (Courtesty: The Guardian, UK)
Repression in Egypt is greater today than it has been for
generations, one of the country's most prominent journalists
and human rights advocates has told the Guardian.
Hossam Bahgat, an investigative reporter who was recently
detained by Egypt's military intelligence agency, spoke out
ahead of the fifth anniversary of the start of Egypt's
revolution on Monday - the run-up to which has seen an
unprecedented crackdown by security forces against
opposition and dissent.
"This is without doubt the worst we've ever seen," said
Bahgat, citing restrictions on media outlets, a spike in the
number of political prisoners, forced disappearances, and
alleged extrajudicial killings of Islamists by the state.
"The level of repression now is significantly higher than it
was under the Mubarak regime, and people from older
generations say it is worse than even the worst periods of
the 1950s and 1960s [under the rule of Gamal Abdel Nasser]."
In an effort to ward off any protests half a decade on from
the uprising that toppled the former president Hosni
Mubarak, the Egyptian authorities have raided thousands of
homes in Cairo and installed new surveillance infrastructure
around Tahrir Square.

The Egyptian government says it is fighting terrorism and
claims the country is making progress on political rights.
Over the past week five Egyptian policemen were killed by
gunmen in northern Sinai, while six people died in a bomb
attack in Giza.
"We have paid a lot for the security and stability that we
currently live in, so I ask all Egyptians for the sake of
the martyrs and the blood to take care of their country,"
Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, the president, said in a speech to the
nation on Saturday.
Bahgat argued: "The only reason that there is such a level
of panic regarding public opinion is that two years ago the
regime could afford to take us for granted; Sisi was
worshipped and they had carte blanche to do whatever it took
to impose stability. "With all the state powers now unified
under Sisi's leadership ... people are now starting to ask
questions of him."

Personal Rights, one of Egypt's most acclaimed human rights
organisations. Since 2014 he has worked as a journalist with

Kent State Professor Investigated for Possible Ties to

Investigation over possible involvement with the Islamic
The inquiry came to light as federal agents arrived at the
campus this week to interview students and professors about
Julio Pino, an educator in the history department known for
making incendiary remarks on Israel.
Emily Mills, a journalism student who was questioned on
Tuesday, said the agents told her they began scrutinizing
Dr. Pino more than a year ago. "They were looking into
Professor Pino allegedly having ties to the Islamic State
and recruiting students to join on campus," she said.
Ms. Mills said she was asked about her encounters with Dr.
Pino as she reported articles about him for The Kent Stater,
a student newspaper where she serves as editor.
The F.B.I. confirmed the investigation on Wednesday but said
it could not comment further. Dr. Pino, who is tenured, has
denied wrongdoing. "My commitment is to my students and my
passions reserved for my family. I have no ties no any
political organization and wish only, in the words of the
prophet Micah, 'to act justly and love mercy,' " he
said in an email message, citing the biblical figure.
Kareem Ibrahim, convicted on Informant's Trap dies in Prison

On January 19, 2016, Kareem Ibrahim died in prison in
Springfield, Missouri federal prison. He suffered from
cancer and died of complications.
He was trapped with two other Muslims, from Guyana, by a
smooth talking informant. He was accused of being involved
in a plot to blow up JFK airport. It was an absurd
accusation to say the least.
According to Trinidad papers, he was the leader of the Shia
community in the islands. He was a Shia brother but the
Shia community turned out to be too cowardly to say a word
to the US government.

Iranian intelligence 'Honey Trapped' Pakistani President
[Note from NT Editor: This is long but deserves reader
attention. Most people don't know how Shia-Iranian influence
took over Pakistan.]
We are hearing lot of hue and cry about the 'national
interests of Pakistan' and everyone wanted to have a debate
in the parliament if Pakistan should join the 34 nations
alliance against terrorism or not? Well Pakistan is already
partner of NATO alliance against the war on terror and
nobody want to debate about it because if they do their
visas and green cards will be cancelled as well as all ill
wealth and properties will be seized in NATO alliance
countries as well as friends of NATO.
Military and Defense attaches posted abroad traditionally
report to their 'premier intelligence agency' back home
which means everything goes on abroad is reported back. It
seems Pakistani intelligence completely failed when Iranian
intelligence launched their 'honey trapping' operation
against Pakistan's Defense Secretary Colonel Iskander Mirza
by Iranian intelligence agent Nahid Afghamy who was
stationed in Pakistan as wife of Colonel Afghamy Military
Attaché' at the Iranian Embassy in Pakistan - Karachi.
The question is what was the ISI, Military Intelligence and
Intelligence Bureau doing at the time? How on earth Nahid
Afghamy allowed to trap
Pakistan's Defense Secretary, got married to her and she
later become first lady of Pakistan. We see General Ayub
Khan chief of army staff saluting the first lady. Was

with younger women from Iran. By the way Irdsher Cowasjee
was the financial supporter and witness of jobless ZA Bhutto
when he was staying in metropole hotel with his new wife
Nusrat Isphani. Iskander Mirza with Shia background was

and laid foundations of 250 years of British Rule in India.

Few years ago late Brigadier Usman Khalid a great
intellectual and strategist told me that: my close friend
General Imtiaz (military secretary to ZA Bhutto) and I were
in Paris and we met Begum Nusrat Bhutto and her Iranian
sister Mrs Heriri in the hotel lobby where we were staying.
Begum Bhutto somewhat was surprised to see me and asked:
'Usman how are you and what you doing here'? I replied to
her that (General) Imtiaz and I were visiting someone and
staying in this hotel too. She was in a hurry and rushed
out. General Imtiaz told me that they Begum Bhutto and Mrs
Heriri with her husband were going to meet the son of a
Jewish friend of ZA Bhutto who kept the money approximately
over US$1.5 million received in commission due to the arms
and air force jet sale to Pakistan. It was legal in France
to give commission on arms deals. It was the same time when
'Bhuttos' bought villas in France and their lifestyle
changed. General Imtiaz always stayed with Brigadier Usman
Khalid whenever he visited London.
Coming back to Nahid Afghamy's honey trapping of Pakistan's
Defence Secretary and becoming first lady of Pakistan
without anyone raising eyebrows or having a debate in the
parliament shows that: (a) Pakistani society is
non-sectarian (b) inter marriage between Shias and Sunnis
are common (c) Pakistani Shias are not like Sunnis in Iran
said Khurshaid Kasuri to Iranian Foreign Minister.
The question is what was the mission of Nahid Afghamy? Well
we need to see carefully what happened or what not happened
since. (1) Pakistan did not do any oil and gas exploring in
the areas bordering Iran in the Baluchistan province. (2)
Pakistan have not done exploring in Baluchistan since 2000
and before. The question is Why?
"Not much is known about Nahid's background except that she
wife of one Lieutenant Colonel Afghamy - the Military
Attaché at the Iranian Embassy in Pakistan. Also not known
are the time and the circumstances under which Colonel
Iskander Mirza and Nahid Afghamy had first met. It is a
matter of conjecture that perhaps as Military Attaché
Colonel Afghamy had frequent dealings with the Pakistan
Ministry of Defence and also with Secretary Iskander Mirza".
Picture: President Skindar
Mirza with his wife and first
lady of Pakistan Nahid Afghamy
On March 6th Iskander Mirza was elected as President and the
constitution was promulgated on March 23, 1956. Three days
later on March 26, 1956 with Nahid on his side Iskander
Mirza took the oath as President of the Islamic Republic of
Pakistan... Thus in a passage of two years, mostly through
palace intrigues and backroom dealings, an ex-soldier and a
career bureaucrat rose from the level of a department head
to the position of the Head of the State. And the Iranian
born Nahid Afghamy, the wife of a Military Attaché lifted by
a government Secretary of the host country, became the First
Lady of Pakistan. For the next two and half years Nahid
Mirza as wife of the President will play significant role in
the national and international affairs of Pakistan.
The Mirza family was an extremely influential and wealthy
feudal family in Bengal, with close ties with British
monarchy. His father, Fateh Ali Mirza belong to the ruling
house of Murshidabad, grandson of the first Nawab Mansur Ali
Khan. His paternal ancestor was Mir Jafar, generally known
to Indians, Pakistanis and Bangladeshis as a quisling. Mir
Jafar had played an integral role bringing down Siraj
ud-Daulah of Bengal, with the British East India Company
serving as the informant and leading provider of
intelligence to company official Robert Clive.
To further add insult to injury his son was not too bad. In
the month of October 1954 brings some more dramatic
developments for Iskander Mirza. His son Humayun is in the
USA getting ready to marry the daughter of Horace A.
Hildreth, American Ambassador to Pakistan.
According to Pakistani historians "Iskander Mirza lived in
exile in London, England, until his death. It is reported
that Mirza struggled financially while living in London
trying to run a small Pakistan cuisine hotel. Here he lived
in poverty until his death. His only regular income was an
annual pension of £3,000 as a former military officer and
president. People like the Ispahanis, Ardeshir Zahedi, the
ambassador and later Foreign Minister of Iran, the Shah of
Iran, Lord Inchcape, Lord Hume and other heads of European
governments made his life in exile tolerable. At the London
hospital where he died, he once said to his wife, Nahid: "We
cannot afford medical treatment, so just let me die.
He died of a heart attack on November 13, 1969. President
Yahya Khan denied him a burial in Pakistan. The Shah
Mohammad Reza Pahlavi sent his personal plane to London to
bring President Mirza's body to Tehran, where he was given a
State Funeral. Hundreds of Iranians, including Prime
Minister Abbas Hoveyda, and Pakistani expatriates in Iran
bade farewell and offered their prayers." The question is
why? What a Pakistani citizen and President did for Iran?
His photo could be hanging on the 'wall of honour' in the
Iranian Intelligence Headquarters?
The influence of Iranian (Shia) women on Pakistani politics
did not stop as few years earlier another Iranian born
Nusrat Isphani (Bhutto) become 2nd wife of Zulifqar Ali
Bhutto who become President and Prime Minister of Pakistan
and later his daughter Benazir and her husband Asif Ali
"The late Begum Nusrat Bhutto, hailing from Iran's wealthy
Ispahani family, was one of the two Iranian-born first
ladies that Pakistan has had since 1947. The first one, of
course, was Begum Nahid Mirza, the second wife of Pakistan's
first President and fourth Governor General, Iskander Mirza.
Both Iranian-born first ladies of Pakistan were of Kurdish
descent and became the second wives of their husbands, who
had then gone on to become the country's Presidents. Nusrat
Bhutto was a cousin of Nahid Mirza. Although Nusrat was 15
years younger to Nahid, she got married a few years earlier
than her elder relative in September 1951".
Well that series continued with Farahnaz Ispahani wife of
Hussain Haqqani 'memo gate' character and former Pakistani
ambassador to USA who reportedly issued thousands of visas
to Blackwater and Xe Inc mercenaries and earning from
Pakistan bashing in India. Surely those who (Zardari)
installed him and kept his wife (Farah Isphani (MNA) Member
National Assembly) in the President House for five years are
Historically, "Vengeful Shiites volunteered help to the
Mongols in Mosul and other places along their march. The
caliph's vizier, or chief minister, was himself a Shiite of
uncertain loyalty. Islamic opinion afterward held that the
vizier, al-Alkamzi, vilely betrayed the caliph and conspired
with the Mongols; an exhortation in Muslim school books used
to say, "Let him be cursed of God who curses not
al-Alkamzi." As fighting began, Hulagu (Khan), acknowledging
the importance of Shiite support, prudently posted guard
detachments of a hundred Mongol horsemen at the most sacred
Shiite shrines in Najef and Karbala" wrote Ian Frazier on
25th April, 2005 in The New Yorker.
To counter the sectarian plan against Pakistan is
time to eliminate all abusive materials books,
and video material against the holy personalities of Islam
must be removed and banned
hate speech must be declared
Government must introduce the 'spouse
policy' for example in Kazakhstan foreign ministry officials
are not allowed to marry a foreign national due to national
Pakistan must reduce the number of officials
coming into Pakistan from neighbouring countries to same as
Pakistanis are stationed in those countries
protocols must be adhered too and diplomats must not be
allowed to move around freely unless they reciprocate the
same liberty to Pakistani officials in their country.
Pakistan is viewed as an important country with all kind of
potentials. When it has many friends it also has many hidden
and open enemies who keep any eye on Pakistan sometimes
directly and sometimes via their friends coming to Pakistan
in various guises.
"Iran may be bombastic but Pakistan has the Bomb", wrote
Douglas Bloomfield in The Jerusalem Post on 3rd September
2008, "Iran may boast of great strides in its pursuit of
nuclear, missile and satellite technology, but analysts say
its progress is no match for its overblown rhetoric. But
Pakistan doesn't need to boast. It already has a stockpile
estimated at 60 or more nuclear warheads and North Korean
ballistic missiles and US-made F-16s to deliver them."
All in all Iran is back in the US good books after the
nuclear deal, has restored diplomatic relations with
Britain, signed over $30 billion deal with India,
successfully eliminated its enemies Saddam Hussain in Iraq
and Taliban in Afghanistan with the US help off course?
The question is why no one is debated this issue that the
kind of space Iranians have been given in Pakistan is not
reciprocated by Iran. The recruitment and training of
terrorists of 'Sipha Mohammad' continues from Iranian soil.
There are reports that Pakistanis are going to Syria to join
hands with the Asad regime forces against the criminal
'Daesh'. The question is if Sunni Pakistanis joining Daesh
is a crime than why Shias allowed to go to Syria?
Pakistani agencies have arrested terrorists trained in Iran
who were involved in target killings and bombings in
Pakistan but it was damp down due to the 'sectarian
blackmail'. Pakistan is a sovereign state and no one should
be allowed to live in Pakistan but sing from Iranian or
Saudi hymn sheets. Shia dominated Pakistani media must not
damage the national interests of Pakistan as their 'over
doing' is back firing.
In 2009 Iranians attacked Pakistan embassy in Tehran and
burn Pakistani flag as they burnt down Saudi embassy in
Tehran in 2016. Iran must understand that it does not have
sovereign rights over all the Shias living in Pakistan,
Saudi Arabia and elsewhere? It must stay in the UN
recognized boundaries and borders.
Pakistani agencies must now look for the new Nahid Afghamies
and Skindar Mirzas within its own back yard. That is the
internal threat Pakistan facing that its citizens are openly
hired and recruited by foreign agencies and nobody is saying
