Hadith of the Week

On the authority of Jabir, may Allah be pleased with him, who narrated that the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, said: "Indeed, Satan has despaired of getting those who perform prayer to worship him, but rather he instigates (hatred) among them."

Genocide of Muslims in Burma by Buddhists.
Thousands take to the Streets in Karachi to Protest

[via Shah Abdul Hannan and Zaheer Bawany]


KARACHI: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Pakistan Secretary General Liaquat Baloch has demanded of the global peacebodies to shun their hypocrisy and take due action against systematic cleansing of Muslims from Burma.

He was addressing a rally at the Karachi Press Club, here on Friday. The rally was taken out by Human Rights Network (HRN), Karachi chapter from the Sindh High Court building to the Karachi Press Club. A large number of people from all walks of life turned up to highlight the plights of Muslims in Myanmar region. Speaking on the occasion, the JI central leader Liaquat Baloch strictly criticized the United Nations (UN) for its what he termed criminal silence. He said that people across the globe are worried on the human rights violations in Burma but global peace bodies and the so-called super powers are unable to take any solid step so as to mitigate the miseries of Muslims in the region. He was of the view that the bloodshed of Muslims across the world have become a new normal. He termed the situation alarming for the global conscience.

The JI leader said that the systematic killing of Muslims, including women, children and old people, in Myanmar is an example of the worst brutality in the history of mankind.

He said that the criminal silence of the UN has become a trigger and catalyst for the crimes against humanity in Myanmar.

He was of the view that the leaders of Musilm block in the world and the Islamic Conference Organization (OIC) need to play their due role in this regard.

JI Karachi chief Engr. Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman also spoke on the occasion. In his address, he said that Muslims are being killed across the entire world.

He said that at a time when the rights of even animals and birds are being safeguarded, there is no reprieve for Muslims in Rohingya. He made it clear that he is hopeless of the Western part of the world in this regard. He said that it was an obligation for the Muslims block of the world to ensure human rights for Muslims in Myanmar and the region. He shed light on the history of the entire region. . The JI leader also hailed the role of Malaysian and Turkish governments for their active role in connection with what is going on in Myanmar. HRN chief Intikhab Alam Soori and others also addressed the rally. —Agencies


Islam Hater Wilders Convicted in Netherlands but not punished.
[Courtesy al-Jazeera via Sis. Karin Friedemann]

When he asked supporters whether they wanted "fewer or more Moroccans in your city and in the Netherlands", the crowd shouted back "Fewer! Fewer!" and a smiling Wilders answered: "We're going to organise that."Wilders said his conviction was "insanity", adding the three judges who handed down the ruling were "haters" of his far-right Freedom Party (PVV).

"Three PVV-hating judges declare Moroccans a race and convict me and half of the Netherlands. Insane," he wrote in a tweet shortly after the verdict.

Wilders boycotted most of the trial, but in closing remarks on November 23 told judges his comments were obviously not intended as a call to genocide - but rather a reference to his official party platform.

Migrant men are 'Islamic testosterone bombs'

Prosecutors, who rejected Wilders' assertions that the trial was politically motivated and an unfair attempt to limit his right to free speech, had asked that a fine of 5,000 euros, but no prison sentence, be imposed.

Dutch TV channel RTL news reported Wilders would appeal the conviction.

Wilders, who is leading in several polls for the March elections, said he was not guilty of any wrongdoing.

"Every verdict, acquittal, or conviction will de facto change nothing," he said in an interview with De Telegraaf published on Friday.

"I will continue to speak the truth regardless, including about the Moroccan problem, and no judge, politician or 'terrorist' will stop me."

A previous attempt to prosecute Wilders for anti-Islam remarks, such as likening the religion to Nazism and calling for a ban on the Quran, ended in acquittal in 2011.

That process was widely seen as strengthening his reputation as a defender of freedom of speech and increased his popularity.

Al Jazeera's Neave Barker, reporting from Schipol, said the latest conviction could work in Wilders' favour.
"This could drum up support for some of the issues he is eager to champion: euro-scepticism, clamping down on migrants," Barker said. "But what he is convinced he will continue to do is beat the nationalist drum, so how he plays this conviction is really yet to be seen."



Jamaat al-Muslimeen urges Muslims to realize that most probably Trump will be no different than Obama in coddling "Israel.'

Support the DIVESTMENT movement against Israel. Boycott all businresses which support Israel such as Nestle, McDonald's, Coca Cola and Home Depot.
[ boycott.htm ]

If Trump realizes that supporting Israel is bad business, he might relent.



by Br. Kris

British PM Theresa May feels Trump isn't open to our "special relationship...and Old Brotherhood", as no one is able to sway President-Elect Trump on his naive policy of wanting to dismantle the Iran Nuclear Deal. Multiple Sources claim that could threaten the stability of the region, especially since Iran just made a 16 Billion $ deal with Boeing to buy fighter Jets. (Iran 16 Billion$ deal)


Please pray for the victims of the obviously underfunded Christian Church in Nigeria that collapsed, killing 160 people.


Bombing at Egypt's Main Christian Cathedral Kills 25 and seriously wounded another 35 people in a despicable attack on the innocent, obviously meant to create strife and not unity...I thought Islam teaches to protect Christians in Islamic territory, not slaughter them. The police SAY that the attack was linked to a shadowy portion of the Muslim Brotherhood, but take that with a grain of salt.

Political Prisoners :


 Dr Kaukab Siddique

Muhammad, peace be on him, the greatest revolutionary of all times. Suppressed Slavery, Gave Equality to Women, Set the Standards for Right and Wrong, Implemented Jihad against Oppressors, Left for us the Example of Perfection.

On December 9, Br. Kaukab Siddique gave the juma' khutba at Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen, Baltimore Maryland and led prayers. In spite of sudden extreme cold weather, the mosque was packed with worshippers, mostly African Americans, Africans, Pakistanis and Arabs. However it's a small masjid, so an outline of the khutba is given here for large scale distribution on the Internet


It is He Who has sent amongst the Unlettered a messenger from among themselves, to recite to them His Verses, to Purify them, and to instruct them in the Book and Wisdom,- although they had been, before, in manifest error;- [The Quran 62:2]

On the occasion of 12 Rabi' al-Awwal, when the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, was born, we must try to understand the transformational message he brought which changed the world forever and will continue the process of change inshallah.

  1. What is divine revelation? [ wahi in Arabic]

  2. Why there cannot be a Prophet or Messenger after Muhammad, pbuh?

  3. In what way Muslims accept the teachings of Abraham, Moses and Jesus, peace be on them, and all the messengers and prophets who came before him.?

  4. What is the evidence that Muhammad, pbuh, ended slavery and Islam abhors servitude of humans by humans?

  5. Is it true that Islam teaches equality of men and women, and superiority is only based on character and humbleness/worship focusing on Allah?

  6. Muhammad, pbuh, forbade all harshness towards women, including in divorce, and awarded the death sentence for rape after proper investigation.

  7. Islam is a religion of peace and expresses differences towards all religions only through rational and humanistic methods and teachings .

  8. However Islam teaches resistance against all oppressors, including those who claim to be Muslims, through peaceful means such as the Prophet, pbuh, did in Makkah.

  9. Where Muslim communities, states or khilafat has been established and it is threatened by physical hostility, Islam teaches Jihad or armed uprising. There are teachings about jihad, making it obligatory in such situations, in all the longer chapters of the Qur'an. Jihad is an essential part of Islam.

  10. Muslims follow the Sunnah or example of the Prophet, pbuh, which has been meticulously documented, taught and cross referenced by the scholars of Islam in books of hadith.

  11. The sahaba or Companions of the Prophet, pbuh, are highly praised in the Qur'an, see 9:100, who not only disseminated his [pbuh] hadith but also brought a living flavor of what it means to be Muslim to future generations.

  12. The Qur'an and the hadith of Mushammad, pbuh, are intricately connected and one cannlot be disconnected from the other without seriously damaging the wholeness and complexity of Islam.

Let us give the message of compassion, understanding and humanity to the people of America and strong opposition to the evil which is rampant here. Ameen.

Russian-Iranian-Shia Forces smash their way into Eastern Aleppo. Horrific Scenes of Massacre. Mujahideen Continue Armed Resistance

Islamic State [IS] Launches Long Offensive, Captures and Holds Palmyra City and Surrounding Areas Despite 60 Russian Air Strikes.

Turkish led Militia Battering el-Bab. US air force Bombing Raqqa and various other Areas.

Finally on December 7 forces supporting Bashar al-Assad smashed their way into the Islamic stronghold of Eastern Aleppo. By December 11 they had captured most of Eastern Aleppo. Steady bombing by the Russian air forces and Iranian artillery killed more than 400 civilians. Eye witnesses report bodies in the wreckage of the streets. There was not much left to defend as hospitals, clinics, water and industry, bakeries were specific targets of the invaders.

Several hundred people crossed into the regime controlled western part of Aleppo and have disappeared.

The center of the city of Aleppo is still in the hands of al-Nusra mujahideen. The Free Syrian Army [FSA] consisting of civilians who took up arms could not withstand the terror bombing by Russia. Those who survived are standing with al-Nusra.

The shias did not spare even the escaping civilians. On December 8, the regime hit a camp for displaced persons with 8 ground-to-ground missiles meant for use against tanks.

[Russian bombing of the free eastern Aleppo is still being continued [night of December 11].

The mujahideen are retaliating against the Alawite enclave in western Aleppo with mortar fire and rockets after receiving artillery fire from Hizbullah and Alawite militias in western Aleppo. Scores of people have been killed in both sides of the city as well as some in the Kurdish enclave in northwestern Aleppo which joined the Alawite.

On December 7, the Islamic State [IS] launched a huge offensive towards Palmyra [known as Tudmir in Arabic] and captured it on December 9. However Russia bombed them with 60 strikes and forced them to leave the city. However, to everyone's surprise, IS launched a second offensive and by December 11 is in complete control of Palmyra. [This city is notorious for its prison where Assad's death squads tortured and executed thousands of civilians suspected of opposing the regime.]

The regime's air force and helicopters are also bombing and using helicopters against the suburbs of Damascus as well as the Islamic controlled province of Idlib. The Americans are bombing Raqqa again.

According to one SOHR report, the Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi met some Syrian fighters and sent reinforcements into Syria to stop Assad's attacks on small mujahideen groups.

Iraq   Week Eight

US-Backed Offensive Against Mosul in Serious Trouble. Thousands of Shia and Kurdi troops Killed.
US air force has knocked out the bridges. People will starve once Supplies run out.

A very worried US Defense Secretary has arrived in Iraq to find out why America cannot win even with 5000 American special forces troops supporting the huge Shia army.

Associated Press and other wire services report on the daily attempts by the Shia and Kurdish forces to press forward into Mosul. Reports agree that Islamic State fighters are slaughtering the invaders.

AP reporters that till November 17 [one month after the assault began], Iraqi regime military reported that it had lost 2000 of its elite troops killed and many more injured.

After that the regime stopped reporting losses. Most recently [December 10], the Islamic fighters allowed the Shia elite forces to enter a hospital on the outskirts of the city. Suddenly the mujahideen appeared "out of nowhere" and killed all of the 100 Shia troops who had entered the hospital.

All sources agree that the fighting is "fierce" and IS is using snipers and martyrdom operators in truck bombs as well as audacious fighters carrying light machine guns

All sources agree that more than 100,000 shia troops and 16,000 Kurds are trying to defeat 4,000 [some say 6000] IS mujahideen.

Only 8000 civilians have left the city out of a population of one million.

Meanwhile, IS is also carrying out a wave of attacks on Baghdad's Shia areas.


On December 11, 6 Egyptian police were killed and 3 injured on the road to Giza in an Islamic State related bomb attack.

General Sissi, a friend of Trump, has closed all doors to peaceful change.

Believe it or not: American Women Used to be Ashamed of being Virgins!
So there has been Much Improvement!

by Sis. Karin Friedemann

Even though there are still many things to complain about, as a child who was born in 1970s and lived my childhood through the "sexual revolution," with only TV comedies or "Charlie's Angels" to guide me as to how to be a proper American, I want to comment the present generation on its improvements. When I was in fifth grade, I remember experiencing extreme shame and self-loathing because I was still a virgin. This must mean I was ugly and therefore worthless, I thought.

Since the girl power movements and movies like "Legally Blonde," I feel like it is safer to raise a girl child in America. In my high school, if I were to say out loud, "I am a Christian and I decided to save my virginity for marriage," I would have had no friends. I would have been considered like a mentally ill person and outcast.
Those days are over. And the funny thing is, I have noticed through my very young online friends that you don't even have to be Christian or even Muslim to preserve your virginity these days. Some girls are refusing to have sex because they are Satanists! Or Witches! The point is that girls figured it out finally. How punk rock is that.

New York.
Families of Police Victims are "bought?"
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen]

New York City - Nowhere in a free, democratic society is there such a thing as a routine stop!

Thousands of shoppers, pedestrians, and drivers of African-descent are stopped by law enforcement every day in the name of routine stops. No crime has been committed. No evidence of a crime has been committed by these folks yet, they are stopped and frisked...illegally!

In worse case scenarios, people of African-descent have been murdered by law enforcement while posing no threat to anyone's life. According to public cable's Community Cop Show panelist Noel Leader, who is also a retired NYPD detective, it is not enough for a police officer to say he/she was afraid or fearful. This suspect must pose a serious threat to his/her life. However, in may instances either the person of African-descent was unarmed or, if armed, the gun was not drawn.

There have been some well-known cases where unarmed people of African-descent have been murdered. Now, some of these families of those slain by law enforcement have begun to receive out of court settlements. The issue now is where is the justice for the slain?

The reality is that many of these families, who were so vociferous about getting justice before, have now become silent after getting their settlements. It is not a coincidence that after the families receive their agreed upon settlements that these police officers are never brought to trial or they are acquitted.

Here are sample reactions by family members after settlements have been received:

- DuBose Family of Ohio: Father, Sam DuBose, shot near University of Cincinatti's college campus while seated in his car. Officer Tensing, DuBose's killer, lied and said he was attacked. Now, family says, "We can heal." - $4.85 million settlement.

Other information from the University of Cincinnati settlement: Sam DuBose's 12 children also receive a free education and $500,000 in aid from the school. There will be a memorial for Sam DuBose set up on campus, as well as an apology from the school president to the family.

Dubose's sister, Terina DuBose-Allen, has said, "We're not happy, we're not satisfied - those aren't the words," she said. "The settlement means we're moving forward and we can heal." Apparently, now, that they have that settlement the fight for justice has ended?

A date for former campus Officer Ray Tensing's murder trial has not been set, yet. Will he get convicted now?

- The Scott Family of South Carolina: Walter Scott was shot in the back stemming from yet another traffic stop, this time for a broken tail light. - $6.5 million settlement.

Walter Scott's brother, Anthony, had this to say after the settlement had been reached: "The city of Charleston's actions have ensured that Walter did not die in vain," he said. The city sent a message, loud and clear, that this type of reckless behavior will not be tolerated."

However, the trial of former Officer Michael Slager, Walter Scott's killer, ended in a mistrial. A lone White juror stated that no matter what the evidence indicated that he was not voting guilty. Michael Slager will be tried, again. But, how come the prosecutor did not use an alternate juror to replace this rogue?

Usually, I am not of the opinion that one person of African-descent represents all people of African-descent however, Michael Greys (Community Cop panelist) suggests that the Black community could make some progress toward justice if the families continued to be outspoken for justice even after they have received their settlements. Maybe he's right.

But, I believe that each family's response in these murder cases reveal how weak or strong that particular victim's family is and unfortunately, in many instances, they show weakness. Perhaps, families of police shooting victims need to either start turning down settlement money or accept it the settlement but, never stop seeking prison time for their loved one's killers.

It should be noted that these settlements come from the taxpayer. Neither the police unions nor its officer members ever pay a dime! The ambulance chasing attorneys representing these families get paid their percentage from these settlements, usually ten percent. Once again, African people's misfortunes, not unlike African enslavement, is making people rich!




In a War in Which Millions Perished, why the Suffering of one race continues to be highlighted? Here is an important Correction. [New Trend Editor]

Letter to All Things Considered (NPR radio)

Dear All Thing Considered-

I often enjoy listening to All Things Considered. But I was upset by various statements made during the LAKSHMI SINGH interview with Professor Deborah Lipstadt, specifically Lipstadt's claims that Holocaust Revisionism (as it is correctly called) is anti-Semitic.

Although it is standard practice to defame Revisionists as "anti-Semites who claim the Holocaust is just Jewish propaganda," that is not what we at CODOH argue. Briefly, we believe that much of the history taught today has been influenced by Soviet, British and American wartime propaganda which exaggerated and exploited real tragedies for propaganda purposes. This concerns not just Jews but Slavs, Roma, Jehovah's Witnesses and, in some versions, Homosexuals. It can be argued that there is considerable research that supports this point of view. An example is the vastly revised death figures for Majdanek Camp.

At the Nuremberg Tribunal, Soviet prosecutors presented evidence that 1,400,000 people were killed at Majdanek Concentration Camp in Lublin, Poland. Revisionist Historians have long disputed this figure and the official number has drifted downward over time; dropping to somewhere around a 250,000 figure by 2004.

In 2000 Revisionist scholars Carlo Mattogno and Jurgen Graff found that the actual figure was well below 100,000 deaths. They also pointed out that Jewish inmates were a majority of the victims of the Camp, comprising 83% of the deaths versus 28% in Soviet propaganda tales.

Revisionist historians everywhere expressed pleasure at the 12/23/05 announcement by the Auschwitz State Museum that researcher Tomasz Kranz had reviewed the evidence and concluded that the true death toll of Majdanek from all causes was 78,000. "The findings [of Kranz] are highly authoritative," declared Prof. Zygmunt Mańkowski, chairman of the Majdanek Museum board. Kranz's research confirmed the figure given by Raul Hilberg and the accuracy of Revisionist research but was also good news, in a manner of speaking. While 78,000 victims is still a horrible tragedy it is a quantum difference from the Nuremberg figure and the various exaggerated "official" figures given since 1946.

It is worth noting that Professor Lipstadt promoted incorrect and greatly exaggerated figures at the time of the Irving v. Penguin Trial. We would ask that All Things Consider correct the smear against Holocaust Revisionists.

You might even interview a Revisionist someday!

Thank you.

The fighter plane, fllown by air forces around the world, may soon be manufactured only in India.

As a new American president bent on retaining American jobs prepares to take office, the Obama administration and the U.S. defense industry are working on a deal with the Indian government to build iconic U.S. combat aircraft in India.

In recent months, Lockheed Martin and Boeing have made proposals to the Indian government to manufacture fighter jets — the F-16 Fighting Falcon and the F/A-18 Super Hornet — in India as the country seeks to modernize its rapidly aging fleet of largely Russian-built airplanes.

In both cases, the aviation companies would be building production facilities in India; Lockheed Martin proposes to move its entire F-16 assembly line from Texas to India, making India the sole producer of the single-engine combat aircraft.

The U.S. military is phasing out the F-16 for its own use, but other countries remain as likely customers.

The proposals have the strong backing of the Obama administration, which has sought a closer connection with the Indian military in recent years. Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James said she was "optimistic" about the prospect of a deal after a visit to New Delhi in August, and Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter is set to return to India next week, with procurement high atop the list of discussion topics.

But the election of a billionaire businessman focused on keeping jobs at home, rather than creating them overseas, has brought a measure of uncertainty to the talks.
