Late reports say that the Shia militia hanged 15 Sunnis in

Imam Badi Ali leads the Movement in America against Zionism
In his latest statement to New Trend [August 24] he sees the
way forward thus:
Allah is Just. Allah will make Final Judgment against
the oppressor and the aggressor. Those who did not
participate in the killing of defenseless people in Gaza but
did and said nothing also face Allah's Wrath. It is quite
obvious that in spite of the most horrible Israeli
atrocities, many Muslims simply did nothing.
Read the Qur'an. It has not only exposed the open enemies
of Islam but also the munafiqun. The Qur'an speaks
extensively about the hypocrites [munafiqun]. The
distinguished Islamic scholar Ibn al-Qayyim said that much
of the Qur'an is about the hypocrites.
After this war in Gaza, there will be a different war.
The enemy has discovered the weaknesses of the Muslims and
in turn Muslims have discovered the enemy's weaknesses. So,
US Muslims, don't put away your placards, signs and flags.
Prepare yourself for the next conflict which will spread
around the globe.
In the next phase, the tunnels will go all the way to Tel
Aviv and to Jaffa. The struggle will be on the sea and the
land and everywhere . New technologies, creativity,
progressive thinking will be required.
We must remove BORDERS, not only from our lands but also
from our HEARTS and SOULS. The borders have been imposed on
us. There is no such thing as "Saudi" Arabia. It is a fake.
We are ONE UMMAH. We must LIBERATE PALESTINE and LIBERATE
Masjid al-Aqsa and for that these imposed borders must be
We are facing the new CRUSADES. Remember the crusaders
came from all over Europe and they successfully occupied
Palestine. The fighting went on for generations. In this NEW
CRUSADE today, Jews have come from all over the world to
occupy Palestine by force. The struggle to end the
occupation will go on for a long time.
The future is bright owing the blood of the SHUHADA and
owing to the resistance of the people.

Khutba on Gaza and Ferguson: Muslims of America! Wake
On August 22, the juma' khutba was given by Br. Kaukab
Siddique at Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen in Baltimore,
Maryland. After juma a number of people discussed the khutba
with the khateeb and expressed deep appreciation. The
audience included African Americans, Senegalese, Pakistanis
Here are a few points from the khutba:
We live in troubled times. To behave like Muslims in
America, we must have Ilm or knowledge.
Study the Qur'an and hadith and be aware of what is going
on in the Muslim world and in America.
Establish the 5 prayers. The Prophet, pbuh, compared
prayers to his mairaj or visit to the heavens where he came
close to the PRESENCE of Allah.
The "asalamu alaykum" we say to conclude the prayer is a
du'a of well wishing not to the angels who pray with us but
to each other. So make a du'a for the person sitting next to
All our prayers and religious activities are nullified if
we cooperate with oppressors.
These could be tyrants, traitors, corrupt rulers,
anti-Islamic forces like Zionism and imperialism, brutal
police forces and those who exploit women and children. The
Qur'an leaves no doubt about this cooperation:
"And incline not towards those who are oppressors lest the
Fire should touch you, and you have no protectors other than
Allah, nor would you then be helped."
[The Qur'an 11: 113]
"incline not" means, according to Hadith, that the
slightest, even mental, support for oppressors is not
permitted. As a follower of the sahaba, r.a., indicated that
if a tyrant drops his pen and you pick it up for him, it is
In Islam there is no question of working with or
supporting oppressors, be they governments or individuals or
At this time, the oppressors, the Israelis, theYahood,
are committing horrendous crimes against humanity, even
shredding the bodies and brains of little babies with their
late model bombs, missiles and long range artillery.
How accursed is he or she who has the slightest soft
corner for this monster called Israel. Not only we should
speak out against Israel, we must boycott all Zionists and
the products of those who support Zionism, such as nestle
We all commit sins and we all have shortcomings. We hope
and pray that we will not be put into hell fire for our
The Prophet, pbuh, has taught many ways to save ourselves
from, but of these the one way which is the most sure way of
avoiding the fire of hell is to FREE SLAVES.
"One who frees a Muslim man, each bone of his body will be
freed for each bone of the slave, from the fire of hell,
and one who frees two Muslim women from slavery, his body
parts and bones will be freed from the fire of hell for
their bones and body parts."
[Hadith of Prophet Muhammad,
pbuh, in Sunan of Ibn Maja, narrated by Kaab bin Murra,
r.a., chapter on slavery.]
You might say, there are no slaves now as were those who
were chained and whipped and forcibly brought to America
from Africa. That would mean you are ignoring the permanent
value of the Prophet's, pbuh, teachings.
All these people who are helpless in their lives are in
a way slaves. Those who are trapped in economic
difficulties, too are slaves. Those who are brainwashed into
addiction, mistreatment of women, adulation of celebrities
and powerful people, they too are slaves.
And all these helpless, drifting, people are looking for
a way out of this mess. They are all potential Muslims.
Look at what the police are doing across America. Police
can shoot down and kill anyone at the slightest pretext,
especially the poor and the Black. Our entire communities
are being treated like slaves. If I take my wallet out of my
pocket, I can be shot down like a dog and all the policeman
has to say is that he thought my wallet was a gun.
Look at police brutalities and shootings right here in
Baltimore: They can in no way be justified.
Look at Ferguson, Missouri, where people have to
demonstrate day and night for weeks just to bring justice to
one police officer who committed murder in broad daylight,
shooting down an unarmed man, sort of like Gaza where the
Zionist Jews swoop in with their late model jets and wipe
out entire families including babies.
Dear Muslims, pray for the victory of Islamic battle
formations across the globe. Long live Palestine.
We see Zionist media telling lies about Palestine.
Would you expect them to tell the truth about France and
World War II?
The allied landing in Normandy is presented by Spielberg and
others as "liberation" to conceal the fact that many of the
French supported Germany. Mark Weber, famous researcher in
California, has sent us a video of the great welcome,
Petain, the French leader supporting Germany, received only
11 days before the allied invasion. It is in French but the
pictures say it all.

Paradoxically Jizya Tax Which ISIS wants could Unite
Christians and Muslims.
Islam does not Urge Muslims to Fight Christians.
The followers of Jesus, pbuh, are not allowed to go to war.
The New Testament does not teach fighting. Turn the other
cheek is the authentic Christian teaching.
This highly moral teaching also makes Christians vulnerable
to violence and oppression. The teachings of Jesus, pbuh,
are under attack from within the ranks of conventional
"Christians" themselves who teach war and aggression.
Thus when an Islamic group urges Christians to pay jizya and
live in peace within the Islamic domain, that its a rare
opportunity for Christian Muslim unity. Christians will be
able to practice their religion of non-violence and Muslims
have the opportunity to show that they will protect and
defend those Christians and guarantee their religious and

Mutiny Among Nigerian Troops.
[This is an AFP report.]
"Thanks be to Allah who gave victory to our brethren in (the
town of) Gwoza and made it part of the Islamic caliphate,"
Abubakar Shekau said in the 52-minute video.
He declared that Gwoza, in Borno state, now has "nothing to
do with Nigeria".
"By the grace of Allah we will not leave the town. We have
come to stay," said Shekau, who has been designated a global
terrorist by the United States and sanctioned by the UN

Boko Haram is also believed to be in control of other areas
near Gwoza in southern Borno, as well as large swathes of
territory in northern Borno and at least one town in
neighbouring Yobe state.
Mapping the precise areas which have fallen into Islamist
hands is nearly impossible.
There are few humanitarian workers on the ground in the
northeast, travel is dangerous and the region, which has
been under a state of emergency since May of last year, has
poor mobile phone coverage.
Experts have described Boko Haram's gains in recent weeks as
unprecedented, saying the group was closer than ever to
achieving its goal of carving out a strict Islamic state
across northern Nigeria.
But many analysts believe the military has the capacity to
reverse the insurgents' advance.
