Dr Kaukab Siddique | Editor-in-Chief Rajab 24,1432/ June 26, 2011 # 27

BANGED UP is a first person narrative by David Irving about the 400 days he spent in solitary confinement in an Austrian prison. The book brings out the plight of a top scholar and historian who was trapped by the Zionists thru their puppet regime in Austria for a statement he had made about the holocaust story 16 years earlier.

The conditions in modern, democratic, Austria 's prisons are shameful to say the least. At least 20% of the prisoners are from Africa. Mr. Irving was treated the way criminals are treated in Austria.

It's a learning experience about Jewish-Zionist censorship and punishment of those who THINK differently from Israel. Imagine the crimes these oppressors commit in Palestine when they treated a great scholar who has never committed a crime in this shameful manner because he showed slight doubt about the holocaust sob story.

Spotlights from Imam Badi Ali, National Shoora, Jamaat al-Muslimeen

Spotlight #1: If you stand for justice, be prepared, you will make enemies.

Spotlight #2: Allah has clarified for us in the Qur'an and Sunnah who the enemies will be. The Muslim nations think they have no enemies and they fight each other.

Spotlight #3: Superpowers need enemies. They want to manufacture enemies to keep their people mobilized. Islam is seen as the "enemy" to create a false focus for their people.

Spotlight #4: Money has become the lord of many. They have no clear objective about why they need more and more money. Is it worthwhile to keep making money without knowing why.

Spotlight #5: Making money the objective of life shows poverty of thought and lack of questioning about the purpose and content.

Spotlight #6: Money takes alot of effort to be earned. Do not become its slave.

Spotlight #7: A message for Egypt: Take the qualities of Joseph (pbuh) as given in the Qur'an. He is described as strong and honest. Egypt's search for the future should be to go to the Qur'an. Be careful! Don't claim Israel is not the enemy.

Jamaat al-Muslimeen's Message:

Visit to Pakistan May-June 2011

Photos of Dr. Kaukab Siddique's mid summer trip are now available on facebook.

It was a private visit for family matters, so some of the photos are personal and, hopefully funny.

However there are important historic photos which are of general interest. These include:

Dr. Siddique's Latest Presentations:Greensboro & Augusta

On June 24 Dr. Kaukab Siddique gave the juma' khutba to a crowd of 300 plus people in Greensboro, North Carolina. The topic was the relevance of Hadith on manners and morals to our behavior in the 21st century c.e. Dr. Siddique gave specific examples from Hadith to support the equality of Muslims under Islamic Law.

On June 25, Dr. Siddique spoke at the Islamic Society in Augusta mosque [Georgia]. The topic was Women in Hadith narratives. The program, which lasted for 90 minutes, was video taped. The program was well attended and Dr. Siddique autographed a stack of his books on Hadith which were sold after the program.

On June 26, Dr. Mohammed Fadel spoke at the Augusta mosque. It was a learned discourse on Shar'ia and Dr. Siddique commented on some aspected of it. As a result Dr. Siddique was asked to join Dr. Fadel on the panel after Zuhr prayers. A vigorous question-answer session on Shari'a followed.

Forest People Under Attack by Indian Police:
Hundreds Injured. Child Killed

June 22: Three people were killed in Gawhati, Assam when police opened fire on 20,000 people who were protesting outside the state assembly for implementation of forest rights act (fra) and against the eviction drive of Assam government of forest people from the forest.

We strongly condemn killing of three activist of krishk mukti sangram samiti (kmss) Among the dead is a ten year old boy who was directly hit by a bullet. Three people who have been killed are Dhiren Kalita, 62 (rickshaw puller), Ruhul Ali 10, Siba Sarma 42. There are still hundeds of injured lying in hospital.

Arup jyoti saikia closely associated with kmss informed today in the morning that in wake of these killings a high level enquiry has been demanded by kmss.

The killling of inocent people shows that how congress led govt are violating its own programme and till date has not shown any political will to implement fra in the state. this also shows that the corrupt tarun gogoi govt is not bothered about recognising the rights of forest people and cleary violating the constitutional rights of the people living in the forest.

It appears from this action that since Cong has been elected for third consecutive time, the govt is taking revenge against kmss for exposing the government many times about its corruption and anti people policies.

India [Unreported in US media]

Defenseless Muslims in India Under Police Attack: 2 women, infant, killed

On June 3, 2011, residents of the Rampur and Bhajanpur villages under Forbesganj block in Araria district came out, after the Friday Prayer, to protest against the blockade of the connecting road between the two villages for a factory. Without using any other measures to disperse the crowd, the police opened fire on the protestors. When protestors ran, they were chased all the way into their homes, where the police entered and killed them, including two women and an infant at point blank range.

"Our hearts go out to the families of the victims, and we share in their grief and feeling of betrayal", said Shaheen Khateeb, President, IAMC. "The barbarism and lawlessness coming from those entrusted with upholding the rule of law, is symptomatic of the deeper malaise of radical sectarian ideologies having infiltrated the ranks of the police and the paramilitary", added Mr. Khateeb.

Videos of the bodies of victims, obtained by news portal, show bullet marks on the head, neck, chest and abdomen, and evidence that the bullets were fired at point blank range. Moreover, the videos also show bullet marks on the walls and windows of the homes.

Although the judicial probe ordered by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, is a step in the right direction, IAMC believes preventing such horrific incidents from being repeated requires a stronger reaction from the state and central government. The propaganda against the region launched by the BJP and ABVP, with baseless allegations of the Muslim-majority villages being a "haven for terrorists", played a decisive role in this senseless loss of life.

Iraq: String of Attacks with a big one in Diwaniya

June 21: The provincial governor's house came under attack by a human bomber and gunmen. By last reports 27 policemen had been killed and 30 [including officials] wounded. The governor survived. [Los Angeles Times.]

There are attacks in attack every day, said to be from breakaway Shi'ite groups as well as Al-Qaida elements and others. Iraq is not out of war yet. Shi'ites are divided into pro-US religious [Maliki], pro-US secular [Allawi], pro-Iran, pro-Hizbullah and others [often in conflict with each other].

US troops are again coming under attack, with 7 killed this month.

NT's Media Monitor: Afghanistan:
America's Best troops Suffering from Taliban tactics

On June 22, Taliban attacked a Karzai check point in Ghazni province. A battle followed which left 6 Karzai police dead.

In the last 7 days, another 11 NATO troops were killed bringing the total for June to 44. [Source: "icasualties" based on US government death notices.] The Taliban are not using martyrdom operators against US troops.

However, on June 20, there was a human bomber attack on a German armored column in northern Afghanistan. Witnesses described two German armored vehicles upside down: however the Germans refused to detail casualties. [52 German troops have been killed in Afghanistan, German sources say.]

Germany is a leading supporter of Israel, second only to the USA.

NT's Media Monitor: Yemen
Al-Qaida Making Serious Advances In Yemen: Nearing Aden

[Based on Yemeni newspapers disregarded by US media.]

On June 22, there was a major prison break in Mukalla, Yemen, in which 65 Islamic prisoners were released. The guards and prison officials were slaughtered by the mujahedin who struck without warning.

The town of Huti has been captured by al-Qaidah groups in eastern Yemen. Next, al-Qaidah took over most of the province of Abyan. The key port of Aden is not far off.

These moves by al-Qaidah could indicate initiatives by the new international al-Qaida leader Dr. Ayman al-Zawahri [known as a strategic planner] and by the local leader, said to be American Muslim Anwar a-Awlaki.

Keith Olbermann Trashes General Petraeus views on Torture:

"Now as promised, a Special Comment on what General Petraeus has said in defense of torture.

He has, in short, declared himself unfit to serve as head of Central Intelligence.

You don't even have to get to the morality question to understand that torture serves no purpose but to satiate sadism or revenge fantasies. As an interrogation tool it is useless for the simple and unanswerable reason that people will tell you anything -- true or not -- to get you to stop.

A civilian who does not understand this is merely foolish, uninformed, or stupid.

A military man -- or a government official -- who does not understand this, is a positive menace to the endurance of the nation. Frankly, in the case of General Petraeus it suggests he has a non-military I-Q of about 40.

What, General, makes you suppose that your "ticking time bomb scenario suspect" is going to tell you how to dismantle that nuke under the Empire State Building while you are water-boarding him?

Why, if he was already suicidal or evil enough to be involved in some sort of terror plot to detonate a nuclear device, would he not also be simply smart enough to lie to you to get the pain to stop? More over, has it never occurred to you, General, that he might be suicidal or evil enough under that scenario to give you explicit instructions on how to dismantle the device that actually turn out to really be instructions on how to detonate the device immediately.

My God, it's one of the stupidest things I've ever heard, and it's coming from a man we are going to put in charge of the C-I-A!

You're testifying to the Senate Intelligence Committee and giving them half-remembered plot outlines from "24" or "lethal Weapon" -- why not Saturday Night Live? Why not reserve the right to torture in case Superman was German during World War Two, or if Al-Qaeda getsHarry Potter's Invisibility Cloak, or if the country was flooded with women suicide bombers who also were considering a late-term abortion?

Mr. President, you have to withdraw David Petraeus' nomination as C-I-A chief.

He just made a fool of himself to a degree -- and in a manner -- from which there is no possible return. If confirmed, he will do the same to you.

If you do not, you run the risk of what Vietnam did (with the help of the late great George Carlin) to turn the phrase "Military Intelligence" into an oxmoronic brand name.

Only this time it'll be for the C-I-A, where the "I" for Intelligence will be meant ironically, because its chief is so naïve he thinks you can torture the truth out of a suicide bomber as his bomb is about to go off!

The entrapment case of the Newburgh 4 reveals the extent to which the government can and has gone in order to manufacture crimes that sustain and reinforce the 'threat' of 'terrorists.' In the Newburgh 4 case, the government implanted informants in the community with the express purpose of inciting and enlisting men to carry out government manufactured 'terrorist' plots--plots that would later be 'foiled' by the government as well.

According to "Targeted and Entrapped," a recently released report by the Center for Human Rights & Global Justice (CHR&GJ) at NYU, the horror of the Newburgh 4 case can be located in these four findings:

1) That: the involvement of informants took place without any "previous evidence to suggest that the defendants were planning to commit violent acts before the FBI or NYPD intervened"

2) That: "The government informants not only held themselves out to be Muslims but focused their incitement on Muslims." The focus on the targeting of Muslims is most evident in the government informant's insistence that ALL of the men enlisted in the 'plot' be Muslim.

3) That: "The government's informants aggressively pushed ideas about the violent jihad and even encouraged the defendants to believe that it was their duty to take action against the United States." The government even "provided defendants with- or encouraged the defendants to acquire- material evidence, such as weaponry....which would later be used to convict them"

4) That: "the government relied on the defendants' vulnerabilities—poverty and youth, for example—in its inducement methods."

Although the defendants were convicted last October, the NB4 case has brought to the fore several important issues, including the question of government misconduct, racial and religious discrimination and several due process rights issues including the right to a fair trial. Please see CHR&GJ's report, Targeted and Entrapped, for further details about this and other cases involving informants and entrapment, at:
