      From Imam Badi Ali [Jamaat al-Muslimeen North Carolina]:
      Spotlight #1: USA is bringing in many immigrants from Muslim countries who are poorly educated, unable to deal with American realities, uneducated in Islam, steeped in superstition. Their "quality" is aversion to their own people. Some of them even worked for Black Water. Muslims must be aware of this effort to undermine Muslim communities in the US.

      America's Muslims, Silent,Terrified face layers of Oppression

      By Kaukab Siddique, PhD

       Part I.
            There are an estimated 7 to 9 million Muslims in the USA. However, when it comes to issues related to their rights and the duties Islam makes obligatory for them, most of them have nothing to say in public. Think of any issue related to Muslims which would irritate the White House in the slightest and the Muslims dare not say anything. Be it Fallujah or the Red Mosque, be it Imam Jamil and the Blind Shaikh Dr. Abdel Rahman, be it homosexuality and the exploitation of women, be it the "droning" of Pakistan or US backing for Egyptian tyrant Mubarak, King Abdullah, the Nigerian army, General Kayani, the puppet regimes in Kabul, Baghdad, Mogadishu, US Muslims have bnothing to say. Hardly any Muslim dare say in public that Israel is an illegitimate, terrorist entity.
          Yet when Jamaat al-Muslimeen reaches out from mosque to mosque, we find that the great majority of Muslims agree with us and are strongly opposed to US-Israeli policies.

       
      Muslims of America are being terrorized into silence at four levels of oppression:
       
      1. US Government's Oppression, bogus charges, bogus trials, extensive use of informants, horrendous sentences based on flimsy "evidence."
       
      2. Fear generated by the corporate-zionist media, FOX, MSNBC, CNN, PBS, the three evening news channels, the funny late night shows, the chain of "mainstream" [actually pro-Zionst] newspapers, and a variety of movies.
       
      3. Puppet Muslim groups linked to the FBI, the White House, the State Department, the Pentagon, etc which encourage Muslims to conform to the government's view of what good Muslims should be like. CAIR, ISNA, ICNA, MAS etc openly state that they are in bed with the oppressors. Mediocrities like Nihad Awad, Mahdi Bray, Johari Abdul Malik, Abdul Malik Mujahid, Hamza Yusuf, Zaid Shakir etc are presented to the Muslims as "leaders."
       
      4. Occasional attacks on Muslims and mosques by deranged individuals. Though quite insignificant, with no fatalities,  these are used by CAIR and other lackeys to create fear and a sense of helplessness among Muslim communities. CAIR and ISNA etc then present the US governent as the friends and protectors of the Muslims. Most mosques have been discouraged from exploring self-defense, legal and professional. The government lackeys urge them to "leave it to CAIR."

      Our America
      Crimes Against Women, Children and Defenseless People Have Reached Horrific Proportions
      by Sis. Abigail Anthony
       
      The editor of New Trend asked Sis. Abigail, who recently joined the New Trend research group: Many of the citizens in Pakistan want to be like Americans and when I return for a visit, they often ask me about America. 
       
       Her Answer: Have you ever thought about telling them something like:  Well, it’s about the same as it has been for many years,  There is still a murder every 32 minutes, a violent crime every 6 seconds, 1 robbery every 57 seconds, 1 physical assault every 7 seconds, 1 burglary every 10 seconds, 1 rape/sexual assault every 2 minutes (excluding the assaults on children), a female victimization every 1.2 seconds.
       One in every 32 citizens are either on probation, on parole or currently in jail or prison, 5 children die each day from child abuse (and 3 out of 4 of them are under the age of 4), a case of child abuse is reported every 10 seconds, and 1 in every 6 women have been molested.
       Tthat is just the reported cases…experts estimate that if we included the non-reported cases of molestation, it would bring the number to 1 in every 3 women in America have been molested.

      ICNA & CAIR Must pay for ruining 5 lives.
      Five US Muslims Betrayed by ICNA & CAIR, Followed by FBI, Arrested by Corrupt Pakistani police, Allegedly Tortured.
       
          New Trend is putting together the story of five young American Muslims who were arrested in Pakistan.
       
          We must admit that without the efforts of famous Pakistan human rights activist, Br. Khalid Khawaja, a long time reader of New Trend, the five youths would have been rotting in a US prison by now.
          Don't forget how the Zionist American government treats Muslims. Very recent is the case of Bangladeshi brother Shifa El-Sadequee. Poor Shifa was kept in prison for 1300 days in SOLITARY CONFINEMENT before he was convicted and sentenced. He had gone to Bangladesh to help the people and to get married.  Of course he does not like the bombing of Iraq and Afghanistan, the occupation of Palestine by the US-Israel. For that he is punished. He is certainly not a terrorist like Hosni Mubarak, Olmert, Musharraf, King Abdullah  and other friends of the White House.
       
          The five youths too wanted to go to Pakistan and help those who are working for Islam.
       
          We have been tracing what happened. Here is the process of betrayal.

      • The parents of the five are members of ICNA. When their ADULT children left for Pakistan, the parents talked to ICNA about it.
      • ICNA is a treacherous organization. It has confessed that it has been in bed with the FBI for many years.
      • CAIR is even more in bed with the FBI than CAIR. ICNA licks the boots of CAIR, just as CAIR licks the spittle of the White House, the FBI, the State Department and the Pentagon in tandem with Mahdi Bray of MAS.
      • CAIR passed on the info on the five Muslims to the FBI with the suggestion that they are "extremists" or "potential terrorists."
      • The regime in Pakistan is not very different in its thinking from CAIR. It arrested the youths.
      • Imagine how shameless this dirty  CAIR clique is that it got five good Muslims arrested who were on a legal trip tro Pakistan. They had US passports and Pakistani visas. CAIR and Bray seem to think, like clones of the FBI, that a trip to a Muslim country should be illegal.
      • Once the Muslims of America lose their fear of these cliques of collaborators and traitors, CAIR may have to pay millions of dollars in damages for ruining five young lives.
      • ICNA must pay too. After giving treacherous advice to the families of the youths, ICNA simply lost interest in the case. ICNA wants Muslim youth to go to Jewish owned Ten Flags and other frivolities, not to Pakistan.
       
      From here we let Khalid Khwaja, in Islamabad, pick up the story: [The next 8 points.]
       
      1.    When the youths were arrested along with the father of one of them, a US plane was waiting to take them to dark little American prison cells, where they would be stripped naked, treated like dirt, given a number, forced to wear prison shorts and forgotten for a couple of years.
      2. Immediately Khalid Khawaja requested the Pakistan High Court to stop their extradition till a hearing was held in Pakistan. That saved the youths from immediate return to the mercies of American Zionists who torture without leaving a mark.
      3. The Pakistani regime came under full American pressure. The police refused to let Khawaja meet the youths. The police even refused to mention on what basis the youths had been arrested.
      4. The five are being deprived of proper food, medical treatment and are being kept in isolation; they had been tortured and they have no contact with their relatives nor are being allowed to see their counsels to assist them to defend their cases, which is in violation of their rights guaranteed under Articles 10 and 14 of the Pakistani Constitution.

      5. There are signs that the five trust Khalid Khawaja but he has to fight in court for the right to meet the five,

      6. If Khalid Khawaja wins this case, inshallah, the five will be released. They have done nothing wrong and participation in Jihad is an Islamic duty.

      7. Jihad is an essential part of Islam. USA must stop confusing Jihad with terrorism. If the five came to participate in Jihad, no Pakistani court can convict them without changing the words of the Qu'ran.

      8. Khalid Khawaja has a Moroccan family in his home who sought refuge with him after the man of the family was shaheed, Khwaja feels it is his duty to help all Muslims who are in great need.

      Obama: A Hawk On Military Spending
      Steve Chapman
      http://reason.com/archives/2010/01/14/is-obama-a-republican
      Anyone who was hoping the administration would bring a modest downsizing of the nation's defense establishment and global military role has to be feeling like Bernard Madoff's investors. Escalation is underway in Afghanistan, the Army is expanding and the Pentagon is on the all-you-can-eat diet .. .. Anyone looking back 50 years from now at objective indicators would have trouble identifying a meaningful difference between the current president and the previous one .. .. Obama's policy on the war he once opposed is not similar to George W. Bush's: It is identical.

      Pakistan: Powerful Islamic Response to London Conference on Afghanistan

      Defeated NATO is spreading Disinformation, says Syed Munawar Hasan.

      by Shamsuddin in Lahore

      [On January 29, 2010, Jamaate Islami's ameer, Munawar Hasan addressed a large juma' prayer gather at Mansoora on the outskirts of Lahore. Here are its main points.]

       Syed Munawar Hasan said that masses would have to rise against the present socio-political system based on exploitation that was widening the difference between the haves and the have-nots, making the life of the poor miserable. Oppressive forces were knocking at every door and the oppressed have to rise against tyranny, he added.

                  The US, he said, was projecting the Muslims especially the Pakistanis as terrorists and extremists/fundamentalists and denying them even the right to live whereas the Zionists, Hindus or the Christians who were carrying on the genocide of the Muslims in different areas were not labeled as terrorists or extremists.                 
                  Referring to the London Conference on Afghanistan, the JI chief said the US and the Western powers owed an explanation to the world community for pulling down the Taliban government and the tons of bombs dropped on Afghanistan over the years.
      He said that the Taliban had denied any  talks with the West or its representatives in Afghanistan. The Taliban, he said, have announced that there won't be any talks unless the US and NATO forces pulled out of Afghanistan. The defeated NATO forces were only spreading disinformation, he added.  
      He said the United Nations had removed five Taliban commanders from Black List.  The question, he said, was why had their names been put on the list if they were not terrorists, or why were their names removed from the list if they were terrorists.

      Pakistan: Deeply Infiltrated

      Photo below: General Kayani's latest move.

      Photo shows Pakistan's top military General Kayani with NATO's chief military officer. This meeting was on January 28, 2010. Kayani regularly gets his orders from NATO in Brussels and has visited the CIA in USA. Pakistanis do not realize that Kayani is the main agent of imperialism and zionism in Pakistan. Zardari and Gilani are secondary players. The USA has cleverly divided Pakistani attention to let Kayani continue his assault on Islamic populations in Swat and Waziristan, Mohmand, Adam Khel, Hangu and numerous other area. His latest meetings with NATO relate to his desire to let NATO let him participate in operations not only against Pak Taliban but also inside Afghanistan.

      War News: Afghanistan
       
      Imam Killed by US Troops: He Was Waiting to take his Children to School
       
            Kabul. January 28, 2010. Troops in a US-NATO convoy fired at and killed an imam named Muhammad Yunis while he was sitting in a car with three of his children while waiting for a 4th child to take them to school.
          Washington Post reports from witnesses that the imam had not made any threatening gestures. The troops did not stop to see whom they had killed. He was not with the Taliban and had come from his home in Laghman province to teach in Kabul. He was the only bread earner for his brother's children too, reports Washington Post.
          There was a protest rally at nearby Camp Phoenix [US military base] after the atrocity but it was soon called off for fear US troops may kill more people.

      Two Us Drones Shot Down by Villagers
       
           North Waziristan: January 26, 2010: A US drone hovering over the Afghan-Pakistan border looking for targets was shot down by Islamic Pakistani villagers using automatic rifles.
       
            Earlier on January 24, a US drone was hit by armed villagers firing rifles near Miranshah in North Waziristan. It burst into flames and crashed into the trees on the border.

      [Jamaate Islami says US drones have killed hundreds of Pakistan's civilians and have hit Islamic schools and mosques.]

      A disturbing message for the US & Iran: Analyzed by New Trend
      Shaykh Usama Focuses on Gaza and Threatens New Attempts to hit the US:
      Strong Response from US-Israeli Authorities
       
       Shaykh Osama's message: "From Osama to Obama." "It is unfair for you enjoy a safe life while our brothers in Gaza suffer greatly... Our attacks will continue as long as you support Israel."
      "America will never dream of security unless we will have it in reality in Palestine."

       
             Just when the US thought everything was under control in the Middle East, along came a message from the leader of the Islamic resistance. Evidently Shaikh Osama is not only alive and well but is directing global moves against the US.
          The message was transmitted by al-Jazeera and in it Osama took credit for the attempted bombing of an air liner on December 25 by a baby faced Nigerian Muslim who readily admitted on being arrested that he was with al-Qaida. Although the attack was aborted, it has already caused huge economic losses and has messed up air travel.
           The American response to Osama bin Laden's message has been almost hysterical.

      Obama's spokesman called Shaykh Osama a "thug." President Obama was disturbed by this voice from the wilderness.
      The Israeli government called his message "absurd" and "despicable."
       
      A self-styled expert on Shaykh, a Hindu named Gunaratna said:

      "The Palestinian conflict was never part of the al-Qaida original mandate, but Osama is clearly exploiting it," Gunaratna said.

       

      Gunaratna has been misleading Americans for a decade. The fact is that Palestine has been dear to Shaykh Osama from the very beginning of his career in the Islamic resistance.

       Gunaratna does not know that the messages of Shaykh Osama till 2005 are now available in English. They were collected and published by a professor at Duke University in North Carolina under the title: Messages to the World. The Statements of Osama Bin Laden.

      The very first statement, published in December 29, 1994 is titled: "The Betrayal of Palestine."

       

      IRANIAN RESPONSE:

           The Iranians pretend that Osama does not exist and al-Qaida is an American invention. Iran's Press.tv came out with the shaikh's message by repeating the word "alleged" throughout the report. Iran's Press.tv also wanted to know how al-jazeera got the message.

           According to reports in a Saudi Arabian anti-terrorism conference, more than 50 web sites are distributing the messages of al-Qaida. Iran seems to be under the impression that perhaps someone on horseback has to come to al-Jazeera's offices to deliver the message.

       

          Iran sees Shaykh Osama as a big threat to its efforts to infiltrate the Muslim world. It is holding the Shaykh's son and other fighters under arrest in Iran.

      Massachusetts Senate Election – A Beacon for the Democratic Party

       

      By

      Dr. Wilmer J. Leon III

       

      A great deal of Massachusetts’ history is tied to the sea. Because of this, Massachusetts is also known for its lighthouses. Lighthouses were once the trusted tool that guided navigators through treacherous waters enabling them to avoid coastal rocks and running aground.  Like the lighthouse, the election to fill the U.S. Senate seat from Massachusetts should serve as a beacon to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Obama administration.

       

      As the Democrats navigate through these treacherous and rocky political waters the election of Scott Brown as the Senator to replace Ted Kennedy should serve as a warning to the DNC of the dangers of arrogance, complacency, and disorganization. It should also serve notice to the Obama administration of the dangers of failing to articulate a consistent message and failing to deliver what was promised to his supporters.

      First, the DNC should recognize that Scott Brown did not run a great campaign insomuch as Martha Coakley, like Cree Deeds in Virginia, ran a terrible one. Coakley ran an elitist campaign, failing to reach out to the communities that helped to elect Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and President Obama. According to the Boston Globe, The lapses were particularly noticeable in minority communities, traditionally bastions of Democratic votes, which did not turn out in high numbers…” As a demonstration of her arrogance, Coakley took a week off and vacationed during the campaign.  According to The Hill, “Martha Coakley’s New Year’s vacation may reign as one of the costliest political blunders of all time.”  Even if you’ve “got it in the bag” you never leave the bag unattended!

      Second, President Obama’s failure to rally the troops for Coakley in Massachusetts, Cree Deeds in Virginia and Jon Corzine in New Jersey is not as much of a repudiation of  President Obama and his agenda as Senator Mitch McConnell and other Republicans would have us believe. It’s more of a statement about Obama’s base refusing to respond to his clarion call due to his failure to deliver on his campaign promises.

      Republicans, political pundits and even some democrats are misinterpreting and misrepresenting Scott Brown’s victory in Massachusetts as a rejection of President Obama’s agenda and expecting this to reverberate throughout the country.  Republican Senator Mitch McConnell has mistakenly said, "This was in many ways a national referendum principally on the major issue we're wrestling with here in the Congress, which is whether or not the government should take over one-sixth of our economy, slash Medicare by a half-trillion dollars, raise taxes by a half-trillion dollars and drive insurance rates up for most of the rest of our country…"

      Actually, according to a Research 2000 poll commissioned by Democracy for America, MoveOn, and the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, respondents said if Democrats enact tougher policies on Wall Street, they'll be more likely to come back to the party in the next election.  The poll also provides some clarity on the role that health care played in the election.

      ·        The poll reveals people who switched from Obama to Brown – 48% -- or didn't vote – 43% -- said that they opposed the Senate health care bill. But when asked why they opposed it among those Brown voters that switched, only 23 percent thought it went "too far" -- but 36 percent thought it didn't go far enough and 41 percent said they weren't sure why they opposed it.

      ·        Obama supporters who decided to stay home were asked a three part question:

      o        "do you think Democrats in Washington, DC are fighting hard enough to challenge the Republican policies of the Bush years,

      o        aren't fighting hard enough to change those policies,

      o       or are fighting about right?

                 The poll showed, 39 percent, said "not enough," 25 percent said "about right, while only 12 percent believe Democrats have been too ambitious.

      The President said publicly on July 7, 2009 I am pleased by the progress we're making on health-care reform …, as I've said before, that one of the best ways to bring down costs, provide more choices and ensure quality is a public option …”  Then in October, according to the Huffington Post, “Obama has indicated a preference for an alternative policy, favored by the insurance industry, which would see a public plan "triggered" into effect in the future by a failure of the industry to meet certain benchmarks.”  The perception is he rolled over on the public option before the fight even started.

      In terms of unemployment the administration has made tremendous progress on slowing the rate of job loss but has yet to turn the corner on job creation. The simple equation is;  job’s created equals votes cast.

      The President supported and implemented a bail out for the banks but has failed to bail out the American homeowner. At the same time that banks are recording record profits and paying out record bonuses, they have failed to increase lending to small businesses (the real engine of this economy), raised interest rates for consumer credit, and continue to foreclose on peoples homes. That is not the “change” Americans voted for.

      The DNC should see the beacon of light from Massachusetts and head the warning.  Quality candidates running quality campaigns are what win elections.

      The recent election in Massachusetts is not a national referendum or repudiation on the Obama agenda.  It’s a repudiation of President Obama’s failure to stand by the “change” he promised the American people; his failure to fight for “change”, and his seemingly inability to deliver.
      During the election candidate Obama borrowed from Dr. King when he reminded us of “the fierce urgency of now!” Now is the time for President Obama to once again look to Dr. King and heed his warning that, “This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy.”  Now is the time to deliver what you promised.
      The Obama administration needs to follow the beacon and heed its warnings. The majority of Americans do not want the country to go backwards as Senators McConnell, Graham, and Lieberman want to take it.  Americans want to move forward and are looking for the President to fulfill his campaign promises by navigating these rocky political waters and safely delivering the country ashore.

      Ismailis - followers of the Aga Khan : He claims that he is  god incarnate. A Great Danger Lurking within Muslim Countries.
      A Letter from a former Ismaili

       
      As-Salaamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu
      May I for the sake of Allah (swt), His Deen and the Muslim Ummaah, request you to please consider the following facts very carefully and decide on your responsibility before Allah (swt) in this matter.
      I am a revert to Islam. I was an Ismaili before - a follower of the Aga Khan. And I perceive an important Da'wah responsibility which the majority of Muslims are for some reason or other are ignoring. I am not getting you into petty sectarian issues, but a very important matter - please judge for yourself:
      1. The Ismailis (followers of the Aga Khan) all professedly believe that the Qur'an was time bound and was not meant to be a Universal message for all times. They believe that their spiritual leader, Karim Aga Khan, is the "walking - talking Qur'an" and his "religious pronouncements" , whatever they may be, are the "guidance" for the present times. The fundamental article of faith that there will not be any NEW revelations or "wahy" after the Qur'an, is being completely violated by the Ismailis.
      2. The Aga Khan has officially Declared himself, before his followers, as the "Mazhar of Allah on earth". The word "mazhar" means "copy" or "manifest". Consequently, these Ismailis who call themselves Muslims do "sujood" before him. So even the primary axiomatic principle of Tawheed is being fundamentally and formally violated by them.
      3. The Ismailis are not instructed to offer the Islamic Salaah, observe Saum or perform Hajj. They have replaced Salaah with certain shirk-infested Dua'as (thrice a day). They are told that their Hajj is a personal "Glimpse" (Deedaar) of Karim Aga Khan.
      4. The Aga Khan and his appointees 'forgive the sins' of the followers on regular basis. Ismailis are misled into believing that they will not be questioned on the Day of Judgment for the sins that are already forgiven in their Jamatkhanas (community centers). Forgiving of sins is the exclusive prerogative and privilege of Allah (swt) alone. Qur'an 3:135.
      5. Against this backdrop, most of the poor (spiritually poor) Ismailis who are not introduced to al-Furqan are confused and misguided. Hence, Ismailis are very easy prey to missionary efforts by various Christian groups and Baha'is. I have known a couple of young ex-Ismailis who are today preaching "Pauline Christianity" to Ismailis as evangelical missionaries.
      6. Karim Aga Khan's own daughter Zahra having married a practising Christian has opened the gates for young Ismailis girls to follow the footsteps of a family member of their beloved Imam-e-Zaman. The parents of the Ismaili girls who wish to marry outside of Islam have no recourse but to let them go.
      7. The Aga Khan has made Halaal for the Ismailis that which Allah has made Haraam for the humans. Taking of interest (usury) is not forbidden by the religious instruction classes run by the "Tariqaah" board of the Ismailis. As a matter of fact, the much publicized "Venture Capital" program (details on the website of FORBES Magazine - search under "Aga Khan"), of loaning funds on interest by the AKFED (Aga Khan Fund & Economic Development) , has been a great success. Similar entrepreneurial projects are now being actively promoted and introduced to poor Muslims of Tajikistan and neighboring areas.
      8. The Muslim Ummaah and the various Muslim leaders are not fully aware of these Un-Islamic acts and beliefs of this community of less than two million members, who claim to be the Ismaili Muslims. Surprisingly, their leader Aga Khan claims himself to be a spiritual leader of 15 million Muslims and a Direct Descendant of Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam).
      9. Earlier, one did not have authentic books on Ismailism, but it is not so anymore. There are two authentic books as well as one comprehensive web site exposing the inner practices of the Ismailis and the Proclamations (Farmans) of the Aga Khans. Hence, now you have no "hujjah" argument or excuse left before Allah (swt) for not taking up the task of inviting the misguided "Ismaili Muslims" towards the Deen of Allah (swt) and not safeguarding them from committing unpardonable sin of Shirk.
      10. The Aga Khan in collaboration with so many Western powers and aid, has set up the world-wide Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) which runs several institutions and service companies both in the profit and not for profit sectors. This network is very actively operating in Pakistan, India, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya and Bangladesh, and has now started concentrating its efforts in Tajikistan and the neighbouring areas where there is a concentration of Muslims who have not known or openly practised Islam for the decades. By taking up economical, social, educational and rural development efforts through NGOs (Non-Govt. Organizations) within the AKDN, the Ismailis and the Aga Khan have gained wide acceptance amongst these countries and masses. Hence this urgent appeal.
      11. Now all these beneficiaries are "obliged and grateful" to the Aga Khan and his followers and his organizations for the much-needed schools, medical centers, hospitals, various projects and programmes. In this manner they are penetrating and infiltrating the support system - and one fine day, the Muslim Ummaah will wake up to the unexpected realization that they have a community of so called Muslims, practicing the Un-Islamic Tariqaah, in charge of all core and support activities. Each of these much-needed projects will have the photos of Aga Khan decorating the walls.
      In the name of Allah (swt) and Islam, kindly urge our Brothers and Sisters to do Da'wah to the Ismailis, who otherwise will, on the day of judgement, hold us responsible for not conveying the Revealed Truth to them. Dear Brother/Sister, you
