Spotlights on Gaza: Israel can be defeated if Muslims wake up
from Imam Badi Ali, Jamaat al-Muslimeen National Islamic Shoora, North Carolina

Spotlight #1:
Defeating Israel is not impossible any more. Even a poorly armed organization like Hamas is standing up to Israel.

Spotlight #2:
Israel is occupying the heart of the Muslim world. owing to the support of western powers and their followers in the Arab world.

Spotlight #3:
Borders were drawn by the British. These borders are only on paper. Don't let the borders stop you from thinking that you are separate from Palestine, be it the Palestine-Egypt border, Palestine-Jordan border, or the Palestine-Lebanon border or the Palestine-Syria border.

Spotlight #4:
Palestine continues to be the compass of the ummah and indicater of the health of the Ummah.

Spotlight #5:
Teach the value of Masjid al-Aqsa to our children.

Spotlight #6:
Be careful. GAZA is PART of PALESTINE. Don't be fooled into thinking that Gaza is a separate entity.

Spotlight #7:
Always remember to study the chapter of the Qur'an titled al-Isra with your family.

Spotlight #8:
Do not criticize any efforts for Palestine just because they are small. Also, do not get involved with criticizing those who are passive. Their laziness might affect you.

Spotlight #9:
Always remember that al-Aqsa and its liberation unites the Muslims of the world as no other subject does.

Spotlight #10:
Have a sense of personal responsibility. What are you PERSONALLY doing to stop the Zionist onslaught and the Zionist craziness.

Spotlight #11:
Instead of waiting for a Salahuddin to come and liberate Palestine, we should raise our children to be Salahuddin.

Spotlight #12:
By defending Palestine, you are defending the Truth,

Spotlight #13:
Give your response to the suffering of Palestine EARLY. Don't wait to see what happens next.

Spotlight #14:
Communicate with the world with Guidance from the Qur'an and the hadith.

Spotlight #15:
All of Palestine is sacred, from the river to the sea, from north to south.

Spotlight #16:
Perhaps Egypt and other Muslim governments are too weak to confront Israel. The least they can do is to open their frontiers so that mujahideen can go in and fight Israel. This is a test of the Arab Spring and the Islamic movements. Will they do anything or has nothing really changed?

Masjid Jama'at al Muslimeen was founded in 1993 and through the grace of Allah, has become an institution in the Govans, Wilson Park, and Waverly neighborhoods which we serve. This modest and small facility has been .....

Huge Israeli military force being mobilized. [Nov. 16]
Breaking news: Israel has called up 75,000 reservists in preparation for a ground invasion of tiny Gaza. [BBC] These numbers do indicate that almost all the Jews living in occupied Palestine are military people in civilian uniforms. [US media and BBC are presenting the flinty little home made Palestinian rockets as a form of EQUIVALENCE for Israel's late model jets, tanks and artillery provided by USA. Two rockets were fired in the DIRECTION of Tel Aviv and the media declared "Tel Aviv under attack!" Egypt should at least give radar to Hamas to shoot straight into the Israeli monster. ]

Pro-Palestine, anti-Israel Rally at White House had Jamaat al-Muslimeen banner.

November 16: Washington, DC: It was freezing cold but about 100 people demonstrated against Israel's assault on Gaza right in front of the White House. About 25% of them were Muslims, including Iranians. The rest were White American supporters of Palestine. Very encouraging that some African-Americans were there too.
The crowd was mostly young. As the censorship is being broken by New Trend, more Americans know that Israel is a racist, terrorist entity.
When the crowd saw Nadrat Siddique and Br. David carrying the Jamaat al-Muslimeen banner which said: ZIONISM is RACISM, the speaker on the microphone and the crowd started chanting ZIONISM is RACISM.
Nadrat Siddique was interviewed by Associate Press. She said I am Pakistani and Muslim. I am here because Palestine is the cause of the entire Islamic world and I am part of it.

Greensboro, North Carolina.
Rally against Israeli Assault on Gaza. Palestinians joined by Saudis, Egyptians, Lebanese & Africans

November 16: Imam Badi Ali led about 100 people in a rally in downtown Greensboro to condemn the Israeli terror attacks on Gaza. It was a large rally for a medium sized city like Greensboro.
Most of the people were Palestinians but there were pleasant surprises as Saudis, Egyptians, Lebanese, Moroccans and various Africans came to join the protest. The passing motorists showed their support for the protestors.
The protestors were carrying flags of Palestine and a huge sign which said GAZA
Young people were in the fore front of the rally, alhamdulillah. A whole new generation of Palestinians rejects Israel.
The protest went on for two hours, 6 to 8 PM, in spite of the unexpectedly sudden cold weather. Local media covered the event.

Imam Khalil Abdur Rahman, representative of Imam Jamil al-Amin, joined the rally. Jazakallah Khayr.

Juma Khutba for countrywide distributiom.
Condemn Israel, Boycott all pro-Israeli businesses, oppose American Jews who fund Israel.
Mohurram: Hijra, Umar, r.a., Pharoah's downfall, Umar, r.a., & Ali, r.a., were friends

Br. Kaukab Siddique gave the Juma Khutba in central Baltimore on November 16. Here is a summary of the main points.

Text: "Incline not towards those who are oppressors, or the Fire will touch you, and you will have no protectors other than Allah, nor will you be helped." [The Qur'an 11:113]
"Strongest among mankind in enmity to the Believers will you find the Jews and the associaters ..."[5:82]

  1. The new Islamic year 1434 has begun with Mohurram.. Muslims should work with the Islamic calendar.

  2. The calendar begins with the greatest event in Islamic history: the hijra of Muhammd, pbuh, from Makkah to Madina. The Qur'an extols those who did the Hijra: 3:195

  3. The calendar was initiated by Umar, r.a., the greatest Caliph of Islam who brought down the superpowers of his time and established justice and the rights of women.

  4. This is also the anniversary of the martyrdom of Umar, r.a. He was too liberal and one of the prisoners of war he released assassinated him.

  5. Sectarians use Mohurram to attack Umar, r.a., and to claim that Ali, r.a., and Umar, r.a., were enemies. This story is absolute fabrication. Muslims should know that Ali and Umar were great friends. Ali was part of Umar's shoora committee. Ali's daughter MARRIED UMAR with Ali's blessing. Ali NEVER attacked Umar in any way, even when Ali himself became Caliph. Nor did Umar ever insult, oppose or attack Ali. So, next time you hear a sectarian attacking Umar, tell him/her: you are a liar. {May Allah bless both Umar and Ali.]

  6. The month of Mohurram is also the anniversary of the downfall of the Pharoah. As the symbol of tyranny, the Qur'an shows repeatedly that such tyrants must be opposed.

  7. Today we have a Pharoah in the White House. He thinks he is god and can turn haram [homosexuality] into halal. Allah will expose him. Notice how Allah drowned the Pharoah along with his army and then brought up the body of Pharoah for all to see that his power was nothing.

  8. Those who voted for Obama have voted for the greatest supporter of Israel. It's a form of kufr.

    1. As the Qur'anic verse i quoted shows, even the slightest mental liking for oppressors is forbidden in Islam. There is absolutely no permission to work with or cooperate with oppressors, let alone vote them into power.
      Islamic people who fear Allah do not cooperate even with Muslim rulers who are oppressors.

    2. Imam Hussain is the greatest example of non-cooperation with oppressors. Don't be beating your chests and mourning and crying. He never did so. Stand against the oppressors.

  9. Palestine is the center of all our concerns although we have many other problems too. The FIRST QIBLA of Islam has been occupied by the Jews. It must be liberated. Israel is a terrorist entity. It has no legitimacy.

  10. We Muslims saved the Jews from the crusaders. We protected them for centuries, but with the help of the western powers, they grabbed Palestine.

  11. Israel is an evil which is spreading its tentacles throughout the world. Only last month they bombed Sudan. For the Israelis, every Islamic movement is a bunch of terrorists. Allah has blinded these Jews.

  12. Look at the Jews of America. They are the greatest supporters, funding and preserving Israel in every way. Are we Muslims so dumb that we still do business with America's Jews? They kill our people and we give them our money!

  13. Look at the hatred the Jews of America have expressed right here in Baltimore:

    1. Jews in Shomrin militia, one of them from the IDF, beat up an innocent African American child. The Jews in the court system threw out the case's major charges [the kid's broken bones].

    2. The Jews invited and honored General Musharraf.

    3. They invited and honored Medeleine Albright who was part of the sanctions on Iraq which brought slow death to 1,000,000 Iraqis including many children.

    4. They invited and honored SALMAN RUSHDIE though they knew he had insulted the Prophet, pbuh.
      The entire Jewish spectrum of power was involved in these activities: their culture center, their college and their radio [NPR].

  14. The Muslims here are so cowed down and bought out that only Jamaat al-Muslimeen protested these attacks

  15. Now with the attack on Gaza, we must oppose Israel in every way allowed by the law. If you have a Jewish doctor, attorney or businessman, defriend him-her. They might be good in other ways but by funding Israel, they are supporting terrorism.

  16. Boycott all Jewish businesses which support Israel. Also, boycott all businesses though not Jewish which support Israel. Do you drink Nestle water [or Dajani also owned by Nestle]? Remember that Nestle is 50% invested in Israel. That's a lot of money

  17. Israel is attacking all of us, often through the occupation of our countries by America. So when Gaza is attacked,try to see it as: Cairo is under attack, Lahore is under attack, Dhaka is under attack, Lagos is under attack. Wake up before they actually do it to you.

Voting for Obama is a form of Kufr. Powerful Letter from a sister in New York.

As-salaamu-'alaikum Bro. Siddique,
I have a response to Sis. Hajjah's support of voting in a kufr society.
I am a descendant of Stolen Africans and Native Americans, which means that land was STOLEN from one part of my family and given to the other to till it for FREE. In both cases, nothing was given in exchange for these services or items.
Allah (swt) warns Muslims, in the Holy Qu'ran, not to do as our fathers have done or what their fathers have done or their father's fathers have done, and so on and so forth. We have to examine current conditions for ourselves and determine the best plan of action for ending our oppression. A lot of people of African-descent love to explain that voting is our way of paying homage to our African ancestors who died for that right. This is NOT true at all.
Our African ancestors died trying to find a BETTER WAY. If they believed the best way to overcome oppression was by obtaining the right to vote and desegregate society, then that is what they tried to accomplish. The Black Power Movement of the 1960's/70's would have moved us beyond that but, the government stamped that out!
El Hajj Malik Shabazz (aka Malcolm X) also stated that you cannot change a corrupt system by joining that corrupt system. The police department is a prime example of this. Black police officers almost outnumber White officers yet, over 500,000 black men and boys were stopped and frisked, last year in New York City. How can this STILL be happening with such a large number of officers of African-descent on the force?
The Hon. Elijah Muhammad always extolled Black Americans to boycott voting because American Society operated in an oppressive manner toward anyone non-White. Regarding this issue, I clearly understand Sis. Hajjah's being unnerved with immigrants who have benefited from the struggle of Black people in America. However, my gripe is with those non-White immigrants who come here and express arrogant, disrespectful attitudes towards Black Americans, not Muslims who are merely educating others about the Qur'an's disapproval with Muslims mingling with the kuffar.
Voting is a right but, NOT a solution! There is a Chinatown in all 50 states. Chinatown does not just contain Chinese people but all of those from the Asian, and even Southeast Asian, Diaspora. But, the Chinese have their own Mandarin/Cantonese-speaking schools, banks, places of worship, stores, etc. No amount of voting GAVE any of these things to them. How many Asians hold political office anyway? Not many.
Black-Americans were establishing ourselves after slavery ended, as well. The over 117 Historically Black Colleges and Universities are a testament to that, as well as the establishment of towns, patents for our inventions, etc.
However, let us not forget history: We were given citizenship and a right to vote in 1865. The Republicans, which was Pres. Lincoln's Party, were creating laws (begrudgingly) to help Blacks assimilate into American society. But, when we started voting former slaves into Congress and the Senate many felt that "White Supremacy" was being threatened. This is when the Republicans and Democrats (Dixiecrats) worked to create the Jim Crow Laws that took away our right to vote. The White man giveth and the White man taketh.
Some of us Black Muslims are participating in an activity that does not even have a stable, constant existence. Even as I write, once again the term date for the Voter Rights Bill has become a media topic. The White man does not NEED a voter's right bill. He has made it so that voting is HIS God-given right whereas our "right" to vote has term limits. Will history repeat itself? There are states talking about seceding now that bootlicker Obama is back in the Oval Office.
If this does not sound kuffar I don't know what does. The Qur'an forbids Muslims from participating in OUR own or ANY other form of oppression. If someone is standing there with a gun to your head, you don't give him/her the bullets to finish the job! The Qu'ran appeals to our common sense as it only can.
Black Americans are still touting that voting is our way to freedom and that if you don't vote then you don't have a right to complain. Says who? I guess, that is another kuffar rule. Everyone has the Allah-given right to address oppression and we don't NEED to assimilate to do it because Allah will and has provided other means for our empowerment.

Follow up of Islamic leader's arrival in Sudan.
Both Sudan and Pakistan see US hand behind Israeli Attack on Gaza

by Anwer Niazi

LAHORE, Nov 17 A delegation of the Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, headed by the Ameer, JI, Syed by Munawar Hasan, currently in Sudan, called on the Sudanese President Umar Hasan Al Bashir, on Friday and discussed with him matters related to the Muslim Ummah, according to reports reaching JI headquarters.

Talking to the JI delegation, the Sudanese President said that the US and Israel had joined hands to destroy the Muslims countries one after the other, and the Muslim states could foil the enemy designs by forging unity in their ranks.

The Sudanese President condemned the latest Israeli aggression against Gaza, and said the Palestinian's only crime was that they were not ready to give up their rights. However, he said that the struggle and determination of the Palestinians had only intensified after every crisis. The Sudanese President said that a few weeks back, Israel had also attacked an arms factory in Khartoum. This was Israel's fourth attack in Sudan but the Sudanese nation had decided to continue its policies regardless of the Zionist pressure.

Regarding Sudan- Pakistan relations, President Umar Al Bashir said that the brotherly ties between the two states had always been strong and the two had fully cooperated with each other at every international platform.

President al-Bashir said that Pakistan had the distinction of being the only country that came into being on the basis of an ideology; therefore, Sudan's relations with Pakistan were above the changes of the governments.

On the occasion, Syed Munawar Hasan dilated on the situation in Pakistan and the entire region. He said that the separation of South Sudan was part of the international plot to disintegrate all Muslim states. The US forces, he said, were continuing their conspiracies against Afghanistan and Pakistan. The US plans and its patronage to Israel were visible in the case of attack on Gaza and even in the separation of South Sudan.

The JI Ameer told the Sudanese head of State that the recent revolutions in different Arab countries had given a new life to the Muslim Ummah.

He also urged Sudan and other Muslim states to raise their voice in support of the Kashmiri Muslims facing Indian oppression for the last six decades.

JI Secretary General, Liaqat Baloch and foreign wing chief of the party, Abdul Ghaffar Aziz, were also present at the meeting.

Supporters of Israeli terrorism say Israel has Obama's complete support.

 Obama Netanyahu

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee on Thursday praised the Obama administration's strong support for Israel's self-defense, as well as the strong support members of Congress from both parties have given Israel amid the Gaza fighting.

"These statements demonstrate that America continues to firmly stand with Israel and her right to defend herself," AIPAC said in a statement of its own Thursday. The group particularly underscored US funding for the Iron Dome short-range missile defense systems which has thwarted over 130 recent rocket attacks since the start of Operation Pillar of Defense.
