Breaking News: September 13: Thousands demonstrated again in Egyptian cities against the detention of Dr. Morsi, the elected President of Egypt. US media censored the rallies but Aljazeerah America reported it.

In Alexandria, the protestorswere attacked by Hosni Mubarak's supporters and Copts who killed one Muslim and injured more than 20 others.

September 14: Egyptian military forces again launched operations against Islamic "militants" near the border of Israeli occupied territory. They are trying to eliminate threats to israel.

Breaking News: Syria: Assad Losing Slowly but Steadily.
Till September 15: Loay al-Mikdad, a Free Syrian Army spokesman, told the AP that they have not received any weapons from the U.S. although they expect some in the near future. [Thus even the group which is secular and very friendly to the US has not been helped - Ed.]

September 12: Mujahideen captured the village of Imm al-Lokas in the southern region of Quneitra near Syria's Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Mujahideen also captured several army posts in the area in heavy fighting that caused casualties on both sides.[Thus the border with Jordan and Israeli occupied territory is increasingly in Islamic hands.] [Assad has never fought against Israeli occupation. ed.]

In the northeast, Syrian Kurds are divided: Some are with the Islamic groups and some with the seculars. Serious fighting is going on. There are oil wells in the area.

Setback for Assad: The suburbs of Damascus where Assad's forces used chemical weapons on August 21 and killed 1600 civilians including more than 450 children, are still in the hands of Islamic forces. Incredible fortitude by the mujahideen is making it clear that if the mujahideen had more heavy weapons, Damascus would fall.

In the village of Maaloula, one hour's drive northeast of Damascus, fighting between a handful of mujahideen and a large column of Assad's mobile forces is continuing [September 13.] Mujahideen are withdrawing to save the village from destruction by Assad's men. His artillery carries out indiscriminate shelling of areas captured by the Islamics. Regime propaganda claimed that a church had been destroyed but a Free Syrian Army officer went to Maaloula and had himself photographed with the church. It is untouched and intact.

Terry Jones, Pastor who wanted to burn Qur'ans, Arrested with Kerosene Soaked Qur'ans.

On September 11, 2013, the crazy Christian pastor Terry Jones, who wanted to burn Qur'ans in retaliation for the 9.11 attacks was arrested in Polk County, Florida. He was on his way to a park with 2998 kerosene soaked Qur'ans in his vehicle when the police got him.

Even his math was wrong. He had included the 19 hijackers among the Americans he wanted to remember.

After years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the global revulsion against the video insulting Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, America has finally learned that Muslims will not tolerate blasphemy and desecration of the Prophet, pbuh, and the Qur'an. Islam is a living religion.

America's nine million Muslims are quite helpless as they have been heavily infiltrated by pro-government Muslim cliques. But it's a different world out there. America's Muslims are the weakest link in the Muslim ummah. Its a small world and America knows that war on Islam will not succeed [inshallah]. Researchers say that less than 5 % of the world's 1.8 billion Muslims joined al-Qaida though many more admired Osama bin Laden. If the blasphemies and desecrations had continued, there would have been a landslide in favor of al-Qaida and related groups. Good thinking President Obama!

Letting Assad Get Away with Mass Murder: Obama's Slide into Disinformation & Double Talk
Facts of this drama aimed at skillful efforts to save Assad.

New Trend Media Monitor
  1. Military option.[but it was not against Assad! only his chemical weapons!] [August 31]

  2. I'll go to Congress First. [Opponents of Assad cannot be trusted.]

  3. Russia's Diplomatic Venture Acceptable. All we want is assurance that chemical weapons will be secured [from the "jihadists."

  4. Meeting with congress put off.

  5. UN intervention now acceptable. Willingness to take the military option off the table. [September 13]

  6. Open agreement between Russia and the US to take over control of chemical stores in Syria in 2014. No punishment for Assad. No moves against him. In the meantime he can hide his weapons and send Hizbullah to attack poorly armed Muslims. [September 14]

Tremendous Propaganda Campaign Against Islamic Fighters opposing Assad's tyranny in Syria.
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

Ever since Obama's August 31 speech in which he began his delaying tactics to save Assad, a concerted propaganda campaign has been going on in TV channels across America to dehumanize and demonize the Islamic fighters opposing Assad.

On September 5, it looked like all the TV channels received a video depicting Islamic fighters executing 7 of Assad's troops. It went on hour after hour and then day after day.

Gradually however it came out that the video is from April and the group shown doing the shooting is very tiny and certainly does not represent Jabhat al-Nusra or Islamic State of Iraq & the Levant.. Then the New York Times, which started this abuse, admitted, very quietly, that actually the video is from 2012. [It looks like a fake video because the actual shooting is not shown. Zionist media can produce such fabrications when the need arises.]

Then on September 11, CNN brought a man named Maajid Nawaz, speaking British English but claiming to be a reformed "extremist." He proclaimed that al-Qaida would use chemical weapons. Then he became more confident and claimed that there is NO war against Islam. And more people have been killed by Taliban than anyone else. He also revealed that he went to Pakistan and held a meeting in Swat in support of Malala and "education." [If true, then he has top security clearance from the Paki military.]

These Zionists have such a monopoly of the media that they can say anything they want without being challenged. The anti-Al-Qaida propaganda is almost daily if not every hour. It's meant to make the tyrant Assad look like a choir boy. Salman Rushdie's great friend Charlie Rose interviewed Bashar al-Assad and refused to challenge the lies Assad was pouring out.

Now we have Putin writing in the New York Times and being quoted against Obama. Putin has also latched on to the one atrocity story from Syria in which a mujahid cut out and chewed the heart of am Alawite terrorist.

Ask yourself dear reader: Assad's late model tanks, planes, hit squads and troops have killed about 100,000 Muslims [UN figures]. Have you seen any of these atrocities on American TV? Even one?

I rest my case.

Latest Khutba
Islamic Teachings Against Slavery are Relevant today.
Tyranny, dictatorship, kingship, Male dominance are Modern slavery.

On September 13, Dr. Kaukab Siddique gave the juma khutba at Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen in Baltimore. The small mosque was packed with worshippers. After the juma, a young woman came and embraced Islam. While giving her the shahada, Br. Kaukab taught that Allah is not the name of a person sitting somewhere "up there." Allah is the Creator and Sustainer of the entire universe. Allah sent messengers like Abraham, Moses and Jesus. The last of them was Muhammad, pbuh, with whom Islam was perfected through the Qur'an.

Sis. Ashira and Sis. Nadrat were asked to help the new sister with her spiritual development.

The following are the main points of the khutba:
"Allah the Exalted says: On the Day of Judgment, I will be the Enemy of three kinds of people: One who uses My name to make a pledge but then breaks the pledge. Two, the person who enslaves a free being and uses his "price." Third, the person who hires a worker but does not pay him his just wages." [Hadithe Qudsi from Muhammad, pbuh, in Sahih Bukhari, kitab al-buyu, segment on "Sin of selling a free person."]

"The messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be on him, said: Allah does does not accept the prayers of three kinds of people: One who becomes imam of prayers although people do not like him, secondly one who comes to prayer when the time for prayer is just about running out, thirdly one who enslaves a free man or woman." [Hadith in Sunan of Abu Dawud, kitab -us-salat.]
  1. Muslims often think that they are not worshipping idols today, so they are okay. Sura al-Baqarah teaches us that we may be worshipping our "cow." Unless we slaughter our "cow" our focus will not be on God [Allah].

  2. Muslims often think that hadith were "for those days" and they ignore what the hadith says against slavery.

  3. Remember that Muhammad, pbuh, is our leader today through his hadith as he was when he was alive.

  4. These are very strong hadith. [quoted above] If we endorse slavery of any kind, our prayers will not be accepted.

  5. The forms of slavery have changed but the essence is still there: the control of the lives of men and women by tyrants, dictators and kings.

  6. We accept this kind of slavery for decades. Look at Egypt, Syria, Tunisia, Libya, Yemen etc.

  7. Then we wonder why are we suffering so much. The answer is that by accepting all these modern forms of slavery, we are violating the mission and the message of Muhammad, pbuh. Dictatorships are falling but the price is very high because we accepted these "pharaohs" for so long.

  8. Look at the condition of women. We often treat them like property, as the idol worshippers used to do. Our sisters are crying out for justice and equality. Male tyranny is a form if slavery.

  9. Malcolm X [al-Hajj Malik Shabazz] taught us that slavery is continuing in America. He distinguished between the House "Negro" [who loves his "massa" even more than himself], and the field "Negro" who has no sympathy for the slave master. Slavery now is MENTAL, not chains and whips,

  10. We love our "masters," be they in the White House and the Pentagon or in our own homes.

  11. Don't ever think that because we pray and fast, Allah will accept us, though we support modern slavery. No: the very essence of Islam is to : FREE the slave. [chapter 90, sura al-Balad.]

  12. Remember Ayat al-Kursi: Allah's power is over the entire universe. Tremble with the thought that Allah Himself will be our Enemy on the Day of Judgment if we enslave free people and eat up the profit we make from the deals we make.

Du'a: Pray for the victory of Islam against the Syrian tyrant and against the occupiers of Palestine. O Allah, help us to study the Qur'an and the authentic hadith.

Letter: Iran and US on the same side again?
by Ather Mohiuddin [Canada]

Iran and the US may not agree on much, particularly when it comes to Syria. But despite deep strategic differences, Iran sees its interests as aligned with the US....

Also Iran's official line is the same as Russia....

This was same case when Iran facilitated US and NATO invasion and occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan and handed over Iraq to Shia puppet government.

Los Angeles Time's report
U.S. shares raw intelligence data with Israel, leaked document shows
By Ken Dilanian
September 11, 2013, 4:42 p.m.

WASHINGTON — The National Security Agency routinely shares raw intelligence data with Israel that probably includes sensitive information about Americans, according to the latest top-secret document leaked by former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden.

The 2009 document, a memorandum of understanding between the NSA and its Israeli counterpart, says the U.S. government regularly hands over intercepted communications that have not first been reviewed by U.S. analysts and therefore may contain phone calls and emails of American citizens.

The agreement allows for the possibility that intercepts given to Israel might include the communications of U.S. government officials, in which case Israel is supposed to destroy them immediately. Other data on U.S. citizens who aren't in the government, however, can be kept by Israel for up to a year, according to the document, first published Wednesday by Britain's Guardian newspaper.

NSA officials declined to answer questions but issued a statement saying, "Whenever we share intelligence information, we comply with all applicable rules, including the rules to protect U.S. person information."

It's no secret that the U.S. and Israel cooperate closely against intelligence targets of mutual interest, such as Syria and Iran. But providing Israel unfiltered electronic intelligence feeds raises questions about why American officials would trust Israel to respect the privacy of U.S. citizens.

The practice also raises the specter of Israel using U.S. intelligence to carry out operations of which the U.S. disapproves. The Obama administration has condemned, for example, the assassinations of several Iranian nuclear scientists that many analysts believe Israel had a hand in.

"One of the biggest concerns in all intelligence-sharing relationships is that the partner would use the data to take action that would result in killing somebody or doing something outside the scope of what our government might consider appropriate," said a former senior NSA official, who, like others interviewed, asked not to be named in discussing classified information. "The worry is they might go off and bomb somebody and assassinate somebody."

A second former senior U.S. intelligence official said the sort of intercepts shared with Israel would focus on communications in the Middle East and would not include many Americans. But almost any eavesdropping anywhere in the world tends to capture at least some American communication, the former official said. The former officials requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of discussing intelligence.

The implications are unsettling, said Jameel Jaffer, deputy legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union. "You can imagine a scenario in which somebody tries to get on a plane and is told by some foreign airline, 'We have you on a list,'" or you try to get a visa and you're told, 'Unfortunately we can't give you one,'" he said.

The agreement requires Israel to consult an NSA liaison officer when it comes across data on Americans, and to adhere to U.S. rules for handling U.S. citizen information that are designed to protect privacy, a process known as "minimization." That would include, for example, blacking out the names of any Americans in intelligence reports derived from the intercepts. But it's unclear how that requirement is monitored or enforced because the agreement expressly states that it is not legally binding.

The sharing of raw intercepts with Israel is particularly notable because U.S. officials say Israel aggressively seeks to spy on the U.S. government, unlike Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, allies who are part of a long-standing agreement to share signals intelligence with the United States.

Jonathan Pollard, a former U.S. naval intelligence analyst, is serving a life sentence in prison after being caught spying for Israel in the 1980s. Secret U.S. intelligence budget documents revealed last month by Snowden list Israel as one of the most aggressive countries seeking to spy on the U.S., alongside China, Russia, Iran and Cuba.

The Guardian quoted from other NSA documents it did not publish in which U.S. officials expressed concern about the intelligence-sharing arrangement, citing their worry about trusting Israel.

"One of NSA's biggest threats is actually from friendly intelligence services, like Israel," an unnamed NSA official is quoted as writing in one document. "There are parameters on what NSA shares with them, but the exchange is so robust, we sometimes share more than we intended."

The reason that risks are taken with Israel, the second former official said, is because Israel and the U.S. have many mutual foreign policy interests, and Israel in some cases has greater expertise in Middle Eastern languages and cultures.

"Managing the intel-sharing relationship is always kind of a quid pro quo," the official said. "One country may have access to certain communications that we can't otherwise get, so there are decisions made at fairly high levels whether or not it's worth it to share."

Why do Muslims love Muhammad, pbuh.
by Abida Rahmani [new contributor from Kentucky] Part II

Prophet, pbuh, suffered a lot in spreading Allah's message that was given to him.

Anas (Allah be pleased with him) narrated from prophet (pbuh] "In the path of Allah I have been daunted and threatened more than anyone else. Once I had to pass thirty days and nights in such a dreadful condition that Bilal and I had nothing that any living being would eat, except what little Bilal had kept under his arm."(Maariful Hadith, Shamail Tarmizi)

Taif's Incident
Once when Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) asked Prophet, pbuh, that did he suffer more than the battle of Uhud? To which he replied that the hardest day was when he accompanied with Zaid bin Haritha went to Taif to preach oneness of Allah and to invite them to Islam. The chiefs instigated the local rowdies for mischief while he was preaching. They pelted him with stones so heavily that he began to bleed profusely. The blood clotted in his shoes, after receiving so many injuries he fainted and fell down. Zaid (ra) lifted him on his back and brought him outside the town in a canyon and sprinkled some water on him. Allah sent angels of torment who asked the prophet "if you say then these bad people will be crushed between these two hills." The Prophet replied "do not do this, I pray for their guidance and I believe that they will accept Allah's message. (Bukhari, Muslim

The unbelievers persecuted the Holy Prophet, pbuh, his companions and followers incessantly for twenty three years. They harassed, tortured and compelled them to move out from Mekkah to Madina. In Madina they attacked and fought several battles with the Muslims. But when Mekkah was conquered and these worst enemies of Islam were completely at the mercy of Prophet [pbuh]: At this moment just a nod from him would have rolled their heads in the dust. Instead he asked them, "Do you know how I am going to deal with you today?" They replied in a suppressed tone, "O truthful and trustworthy one! You are a noble brother and the son of a noble brother. We never found you merciless." The Prophet peace be on him, said, " I say the same words to you today which Yusaf Said to his brother- no reproach is on you this day: Go, I set you all free."

Prophet, pbuh, preached the message of Allah to every one, every where, day and night with all his abilities and strength. He was the greatest preacher, leader, Commander-in -chief, statesman, companion, friend, caretaker, father, relative and husband.

Hasan (may Allah be pleased with him) said on the authority of his father Ali, r.a., that Prophet [pbuh] divided his time in three parts in his home.
  1. For Ibadah
  2. Social obligations to his family
  3. Taking some rest

Then he would further divide his own share of time between himself and for other people utilizing most of it in the matters related to the Ummah. During this time he discussed matters of common interest with chosen companions. Those companions would spread out his words to other believers. He did not hold back any thing from the people; neither the religious commands of Allah nor his own deeds (sunnah). During these hours he would receive different type of people, try to solve their problems, answer their questions; sometimes he received ambassadors from rulers and believers of other faiths such as Jews and Christians. We may call it a Grand or General Assembly of Mohammad (pbuh) with all the simplicity and grandeur of Allah . In these assemblies strategies were finalized for battles, donations collected, believers were inspired for sacrifices of life and wealth, Quran's commands delivered and envoys sent to other rulers for accepting Islam.

He would ask the people who were present there to pass on what they had learned to those who were not present.

The Greatest Commander-in-Chief

"And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery) to threaten the enemy of Allâh and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom Allâh does know. And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allâh shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly." (Al-Anfaal 60)

Holy Prophet (pbuh) planned with minimum resources available at that time to fight the battles against the enemies of Islam. Anas (RA) narrated from Prophet (saw )"I have been favored with superiority in four things, generosity, valor, manly vigor and victory over opponents."

On the occasion of battle of Badr companions were greatly disturbed with limited armor and numbers against the enemy.But Prophet (pbuh] was calm and composed on his position riding on a horse. Abu Sufyan tried to attack him. He calmly got down prayed to Allah for his help and victory,"O Allah, if this small group of your believer is defeated and killed. Then there would be no one to uphold your name. O Allah we need your help and victory". With Allah's guidance he picked up a handful of dust and threw it at the enemy and chanted," I am prophet of Allah, it is true. I am a descendant of Abdul Muttalib". On that day no one was as fearless, brave and daring as he was.

Ibn Umar (r.a) I have seen no one more courageous, energetic, generous and possessing highest merits than the Holy Prophet (pbuh) on the day of battle of Badar. We regularly took refuge by his side and any one who kept close to him was considered to be brave, since he was so close to the enemy.

The Companions (RA) contributed generously all their belongings in the way of Allah when the call was made. This generosity occurred at every battle and the greatest example is battle of Tabook. Abu baker (RA) brought all his belongings, Omar (RA) half, Osman(RA) brought 100 camels loaded with belongings and a companion worked whole night in a Jew's field and earned a few dates. He was standing quiet at a corner, when Prophet noticed him; he asked him to come forward and asked him to put his hard earned dates over all the belongings.

During the battle of Ahzab the whole battle was so strategically planned with minimum resources that the Prophet (saw) 's army contained the enemies for so many days. Later on the enemies got frustrated and went away. In that battle when a companion showed that due to food shortage he had tied a brick to press his stomach, Prophet pbuh showed him that he had tied two bricks against his stomach. During all the battles he was always at the fore front, fighting with valor, planning, courage and bravery.

Why is the OTHER side of Pasover being hidden.
Exposing the Mind Control of the Holocaust People

Abraham Foxman, National Director
Anti-Defamation League 605 Third Avenue New York, NY 10158-3560 (212) 885-7700,

12 September 2013
Dear Mr. Foxman:
With regard to the recent killings by chemical weapon s in Syria, either by the Syrian State or others, you have been quoted as saying: "Our people have been exterminated by the use of gas. We cannot stand by without a reaction when we see gas being used to kill others."

I am going to take it as a given that you would argue that it is wrong to "exterminate" others, no matter what weapon is used to accomplish the deed.

This suggests a question of some significance that, so far as I know, you have not addressed.

Each year during Passover, while the rescue of the Jews from Egypt is celebrated, the other half of the story is routinely ignored. The half that tells us how God "exterminated" all the first-born of the Egyptians on that dreadful night when he "passed over" the doors of the Jews. Countless thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands, of first-born Egyptian babies, children, youths, mothers-all the first-born of all the mothers and fathers throughout the land of Egypt--murdered.

While Passover has been celebrated for some 3,000 years, as it was this year, I am unaware that you, Mr. Foxman, have ever expressed any note of sympathy, or expressed any other reaction, to the horrors of what the Egyptian mothers and their first-born, who in almost all cases were innocent of all wrong-doing, suffered on that terrible night of mass extermination. Am I wrong about this?

Does it make all the difference to you, Mr. Foxman, that the "weapon" used to exterminate the Egyptian first-born was not "gas?" Please tell me what I'm missing here.

Thank you,
