Understanding Ukraine-Russia.

Dies at 51." New York Times Caught in Action about Shireen Abu Akleh

by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

That's how America's biggest newspaper described the Israeli crime against the iconic journalist who had become the voice of Palestine.

New York Times [also known as NYT] is the biggest source of Zionist propaganda in America and is quoted by big and small media outlets from coat-to-coast.

Israeli atrocities do not get reported in NYT. The tactic used by NYT is the pretense that it did not happen. If it is not reported in NYT "it did not happen".

Sometimes Israeli atrocities are reported in a watered-down way to blame the victims, the Palestinians.

The legitimacy of Israel is never questioned.

Next in line are armed Islamic groups opposing America and Israel. All of them are described as terrorists. In a big defeat for America, the readers of NYT are in a state of shock as it happened at the conclusion of the war in Afghanistan.

Even peaceful Islamic groups like Jamate Islami Pakistan are never mentioned in NYT even when they are supported by huge crowds protesting in every Pakistani city and Bangladesh.

NYT's policies are copied by just about all American media including, strangely, by Republicans.

We see Biden pumping billions of dollars' worth of weaponry into Ukraine. The media tell us that Russians are focusing on killing civilians. Military losses of Ukraine are seldom, if ever, mentioned.

If Russia is killing civilians and is militarily very weak, how did hundreds of thousands of civilians flee Ukraine, well dressed and carrying suit cases. [Compare with German civilians fleeing at the end of World War 2.]

America has given $6 billion worth of late model hand held missiles to Ukraine. Britain has provided $100 million of weaponry to the Kiev regime. Canada is not far behind. How does all this reach Ukraine?

Top western leaders are able to visit Kiev, safe and sound.
Is Putin right in saying this is only an operation, not a war?

During the Second World War, Ukrainians joined German armies and slaughtered tens of thousands of Communists and Jews. How did an Israeli become the leader of Ukraine?

Obviously much is being hidden from Americans. Innocent Palestinians are labelled as "terrorists" and many Americans believe it.



Jamate Islami Urges early support for the Suffering Masses.
May 13

by Qaiser Sharif

JI leader Sirajul Haq asked the government to decrease the prices of petrol and electricity and other commodities.

He said the JI would launch countrywide protest if the government further enhanced the prices of petroleum products and electricity tariff on the direction of the IMF. He said the economy could not strengthen by relying on the foreign loans.

He said there was dire need to adopt the Islamic model of economy. End the riba and encourage the zakat and ushar to put the national economy on track, he asked the rulers.

The JI was demanding the government give road map to eliminate interest-based economy in the light of the decision of the federal shariah court, he said.

The JI chief said the three parties which ruled over the country for years are badly exposed. They were fighting for self-interest, he added, asking the people not to vote for the already tested faces rather to choose the JI to bring real change.

He expressed regret the governments had not worked to resolve the water problem in past years. There was severe water crisis in Punjab and Sindh, he said, adding the failure of the government to build water reservoirs and manage other water related problems were the reason behind the crisis besides the climate change issue. He said the JI would bring improve in all the sectors if voted to power.

Blatant Evil in Buffalo
[Upstate New York] [May 14]

Ten people were killed and three more were wounded when a man opened fire at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, authorities said Saturday. Police said the shooter, who is now in custody, has been charged with murder in what officials are calling a hate crime and a case of racially motivated violent extremism.

"This was pure evil," said Erie County Sheriff John Garcia. "This was a straight-up racially motivated hate crime from somebody outside of our community."

At approximately 2:30 p.m., an 18-year-old White man exited his vehicle at a Tops Friendly Market, Buffalo Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia said at a news conference. The suspect was "very heavily armed" and had a tactical helmet and gear, Gramaglia said. Police said he also had a camera and was live-streaming the shooting.

Masjid in Newark, Delaware

Khutba was against Laziness and Procrastination. Surprise ending.

What a pleasant surprise. The Imam noted when the Charlie Hebdo incident happened in Paris, everyone rushed to support Paris. Even Muslims joined in.

Now that Shireen, iconic Palestinian journalist has been killed by Israel, Muslims are being lazy and are not speaking out. At least they can stop being lazy and should speak out.

Invitation to Think

 Invitation to Think

Tiny Muslim country, Gambia, brought the Rohingya Muslim tragedy to the ICJ.

by .Imam Malik Mujahid Chair Burma Task Force
[Excerpted] May 15

Imam Abdul Malik Mujahid, Chair of the Burma Task Force, just left the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague in the Netherlands hours ago. He was attending hearings for the Gambia's lawsuit against the Burmese government for crimes against humanity in relation to its genocide of its Rohingya minority. Both Burma and the Gambia are signatories of the United Nations' Genocide Convention.

One hundred and forty-nine nations have signed the Genocide Convention, but it took the tiniest country in Africa to walk the talk.

The Gambia's case against Burma takes the legal effort forward in a critical way. I heard every word of it, and hugged H. E. Abubacarr Tambadou, the country's Minister of Justice. He is an experienced war crimes prosecutor who served for more than a decade at the international criminal tribunal for Rwanda.

May God bless the minister in this world and in the everlasting life forever, and may the Gambia and its people prosper. I had difficulty holding my tears as I hugged a great American Muslim, Muhammad Arsalan Suleman, who pushed for this case in the first place. He is the former American envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

Alhamdu lillah humanity is alive. The Ummah is not dead. We must thank Allah for this, as we pray He will bless us with more success like this in the future insha Allah.

We had sponsored about 25 Rohingyas to be in the Hague on this occasion. As I was saying goodbye to them, I could see the smiles on their faces. Alhamdu lillah. This is a good beginning toward the long road to justice.

Both of these heroes, the Gambian minister of justice and Arsalan Suleman, will be honored by us in March. Please sign up to be a part of this gala event in Chicago.)

Our Christian Friend Laid to Rest.

Veteran Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh has been laid to rest in a cemetery in occupied East Jerusalem, three days after she was fatally shot by Israeli forces while reporting on a raid in the occupied West Bank.

Thousands of people gathered for Abu Akleh's funeral on Friday, including family, friends, and those who only knew Abu Akleh as a mainstay for 15 years in Al Jazeera's coverage of the occupied Palestinian territories and the lives of everyday Palestinians.

Some mourners hoisted Palestinian flags, with many chanting "Palestine, Palestine" as the coffin was moved from St Louis French Hospital in occupied East Jerusalem's Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood to a funeral service at Jaffa Gate in Jerusalem's Old City and finally to the Mount Zion Cemetery, where Abu Akleh was buried next to her parents.

Her niece, Lina Abu Akleh, remembered her aunt's "commitment to making sure that people know the truth, and her love for the people in making sure they know the truth."

She knew how much she was loved, but she was so humble, she never wanted to be at the center of attention, she said. "I think she would have been proud to see how the Palestinian people supported her and supported our family,"

Father Fadi Diab, the priest who conducted the funeral, told Al Jazeera that Abu Akleh's killing would "have influence all over the world".

"Shireen Abu Akleh was a messenger for Palestinians and for their rights," he said. "Life is sacred and we're not allowed to assassinate life. God created life not to be assassinated, but to be nurtured."

"If someone imagined that the influence of Shireen will stop, no," he said. "Now, she will have influence all over the world."

Still, constant reminders of the Israeli occupation on which Abu Akleh so often reported loomed over the three days of memorials that preceded the burial.

On Thursday, the same day the slain journalist was laid in state at the Palestinian Authority's Presidential Palace, her brother was summoned by Israeli authorities who warned him against mourners carrying Palestinian flags or chanting pro-Palestinian chants during memorial ceremonies.

Then on Friday, Israeli forces attacked mourners who attempted to walk with Abu Akleh's coffin in occupied East Jerusalem.

TRT News
Voices from Turkey

Uighur Muslims in Türkiye have urged the UN human rights chief to independently investigate the so-called "re-education camps" and allegations of rights abuses, torture and even genocide when she visits China's Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region this month.

"I am calling on the UN rights chief to walk freely in the concentration camps and talk freely with the people, without surveillance cameras or without the presence of Chinese police, to reveal to the world the human rights situation there," Mirza Ahmet Ilyasoglu, a Uighur living in Türkiye, told a press conference in Istanbul on Tuesday.

"Because if the UN goes there and listens to the one-sided Chinese thesis ... it would come up with a completely false report which would be very embarrassing for the UN and the human rights agency," he said.

Uighur community in Türkiye has staged daily protests outside the Chinese consulate in Istanbul over the past few years, holding pictures of their relatives and family members with whom they lost touch for months, and even years.

In March, UN human rights chief Michelle Bachelet said she would pay a visit to China, including Xinjiang, in May, after an agreement with Beijing, as rights advocates mounted pressure that her office release its long-postponed report on the rights situation there.

Rights groups say that at least one million mostly Muslim minorities have been incarcerated in "re-education camps" spread across the vast northwestern Chinese region, where China is accused of widespread human rights abuses.

Human rights groups and many foreign governments say they have evidence of what they say are mass detentions, forced labour, political indoctrination, torture and forced sterilisation. Washington has called it "genocide."

Muslims do not Tolerate Blasphemy. [Why?]

A college in the northwestern Nigerian state of Sokoto has been indefinitely shut after a female student in the school was killed over alleged blasphemy.The yet-to-be-identified student was accused of insulting the Prophet Muhammad, which led to a mobbing that resulted in her death on Thursday, according to reports from local media. Her body was also allegedly burned afterwards within the school premises.

[New Trend notes: authorities in Muslim countries do not take action against blasphemy. As a result ordinary Muslims take things into their own hands. Under European influence persons hostile to Islam consider abusive attacks on the Prophet, pbuh, most effective way of damaging Islam.

Hostiles know that Muslims cannot counter Eurocentric attacks because Muslims honor Jesus, pbuh.]
