The heavily funded Muslim organizations, CAIR, ISNA, ICNA, etc confessed
that they are in bed with the FBI but now are CONSIDERING getting out.
A reader of New Trend, named Malngbaba, says that we have been too
harsh with these groups. He thinks they should be called the "alphabet
groups" instead of the Four Letter groups as New Trend calls them.
Malangbaba has started a kinder, gentler critique of these groups and
their alliance with the FBI. We publish part 1 below where he lays out
the main new plank of these groups.

National Islamic Shoora of Jamaat al-Muslimeen Highlights Central
Issues Facing Muslims of America
The National Islamic Shoora met in Greensboro, North Carolina on April
11, 2009. The meeting continued for 13 hours with breaks for salat,
lunch and dinner. The prayers were led by
Dr. Abdulalim Shabazz
The delegates expressed loyalty to Islam as it is in the Qur'an and the
is dedicated to peaceful change. It is interracial and non-sectarian
and teaches equality of Muslim women and men with TAQWA
[Allah-consciousness] and struggle as the key to leadership. Here is an
overview of the gathering:
Theme: Sharing Islam with America
Host: Imam Badi Ali
Secretary General: Sis. Karen English
Ameer: Dr. Kaukab Siddique
The Shoora began with recitation from Chapter 42 of the Qur'an titled
"Shoora" [Mutual Consultation] followed by commentary from the Hadith.
Owing to support from the local community, delicious halal meals,
Arab style, and salads, American style, were provided free of charge.
Owing to extensive efforts by Imam Badi Ali's team, the local Islamic
center known as Islamic Center of the Triad [ICT] is helping refugees
from Iraq, Somalia and Sudan. Women from the masjid are deeply involved
in this effort. An active youth group frequently holds rallies to
highlight the Palestinian struggle and to condemn Israel's atrocities
Dr. Abdulalim Shabazz, the philosopher of Jamaat al-Muslimeen,
carried out a deep and far reaching analysis of the malaise in the
American education system owing to which highly educated Americans
from Ivy League universities express grossly inadequate views on the
realities of the Muslim world and Africa. Education, however expensive
or exclusive, does not help Americans because it is undercut by concepts
damaging to humanity and decency, Dr. Shabazz said. The horrors we have
seen perpetrated in Iraq and Afghanistan and more recently in Gaza are
rooted in the racism, arrogance of power and materialism of America's
elites, he said.
[An abstract of Dr. Shabazz' presentation will be published in the next
New Trend, inshallah.

Resolutions Reflecting the Viewpoint of America's Muslims
Jamaat al-Muslimeen's shoora discussion, discourse and analysis is
formulated in these resolutions: April 11, 2009
Section 1: America
Good Advice to President Obama: America's Future should not be
linked to Zionism and War.
Listen to what Islam has to say: Superficial gestures and Cosmetic
Changes Won't Work
SECTION 2: Overseas Issues
The education system in America should be reformulated and
restructured so that educated Americans can deal with Truth and Reality
and be prepared to face the challenges of life. The way it is now, the
people are led towards illusions, fake values and materialism.
The pervasive influence of the profit motive along with Zionism
and Israel has affected America's economy leading to the greatest
frauds in human history. We urge America's Muslims to BOYCOTT
businesses which support Israel. BOYCOTT is a means of peaceful
resistance which every American can use to oppose war and aggression.
At this time when the Gaza genocide has brought Israel's moral status
under question, the BOYCOTT movement needs to push harder. [Every
masjid will receive, inshallah, Jamaat al-Muslimeen's updated
Mass Culture coming out of Madison Avenue, Hollywood and the
entertainment/porno industry is exploiting the very young and
denigrating the very old. Islamic tools of education need to be used
to help Muslims understand and oppose Mass Culture.
We urge President Obama to work for independence in his efforts
as the President of America. He should get rid of the Zionists who
surround him so that he can focus on America's interests and not those
of special entities. With Rahm Emannuel on his right [Chief of
Staff], Axelrod on his left [program director], Medeleine
Albright in front of him [Security Adviser] and Soros behind
him [financier], he has no chance to do what the American people want.
We applaud President Obama's statement that America's war is not
against Islam and that he wants to listen. He should ensure that those
Muslims he talks to do represent authentic Islam. All Islamic
movements oppose America's policies. If Obama talks to Muslims who
support America's policies, it will be an exercise in futility.
We demand that Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, Florence
[Colorado] prison structures be physically demolished. We demand
that ALL political prisoners be released without further delay.
Foremost among these are Dr. Omar 'Abdel Rahman, Imam Jamil al-Amin,
Ahmad 'Abdel Sattar
Dr. Ali al-Timimi, Masoud Khan, Jose Padilla, Dr. Kifah al-Jayoussi,
Dr. Sami al-Arian, Siddique Abdullah Hasan.
We urge President Obama to release all information, photos, images
and documents related to the torture, mistreatment and
oppression of Islamic prisoners in Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib and
Bagram. All information on "rendition" of prisoners to various countries
should be published. Without full disclosure of the Bush administration's
crimes, the future will not change.
We urge the media to end their censorship of critical
discussion of Israel. The American people have the right to
know about the relationship between the U.S. and Israel. Who is
involved in this relationship and why? How much money is actually sent
to Israel and how is it used. Which segments of American society are
linked to Israel? Why was Israel not discussed during the election
campaign? What is the extent of Israeli involvement in the economic
disaster America is facing?
The Israeli genocidal behavior during its incursions into Gaza
and before that into Lebanon should be discussed and made known
to the American public.
A holocaust museum should be set up in Washington to illustrate
400 years of slavery in America as well as the extinction of various
Native American nations and their cultures. There is no need for
memorials to holocausts which were not committed in America.
AFRICA: Sudan, Somalia, Zimbabwe, Egypt and the Congo are
being subjected to Euro-American interference and subversion. As Sudan
has shown in its peace agreement with the South, Africans are quite
capable of solving their own problems. We oppose all Euro-American
interference in Africa and we condemn in particular the recent
moves against Sudanese leadership. We see plans, under the
guise of anti-piracy measures, to re-invade Somalia after Islamic
victories there. Egypt has been more or less taken over by Euro-American
powers. Zimbabwe was severely punished by Europe for its land transfers
to Africans and slaughter has been enabled in the Congo for its
We urge President Obama to keep his pledge to end the war. The
American people voted against WAR, not just against the war in Iraq.
The Islamic resistance has made it impossible for American militaries
to win. We call on the new administration to WITHDRAW ALL FORCES from
Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The attacks on Pakistan will not
give any quick victory to America and will ignite resistance and
inflict suffering on the Pakistani people. This is a dead end for
U.S.-NATO adventurism. Please stop this process of war.
Israel must accept full responsibility for the suffering it has
imposed on Gaza in particular and the Palestinian people in general.
Israel should be penalized for the financial losses it has inflicted
and an impartial body should be set up to determine the compensation
Israel must pay to the people of Gaza and other of its victims.
As a first step, the Israeli blockade of Gaza should be lifted. The
Arab regimes in the region are complicit in the Israeli blockade and
should be urged to move to pressure Israel.
Aid given to African countries is tiny as compared to what is
given to Israel. This aid is not helping Africa. Efforts should be made
to determine where aid has gone and what can be done to ensure that
help reaches the African people.
The Muslim world should COMBINE its efforts to DISMANTLE ISRAEL by
peaceful means. The goal should be clear: a Zionist entity imposed
on the heartland of Islam and the Arab world was a strategic blunder by
European powers and has no future.
We salute the people of Gaza for their heroic resistance
to the Israeli juggernaut. No amount of Israeli brutality and firepower
could persuade the people of Gaza to surrender. This is a good sign for
the future victory of Palestine.
We support the right of Latinos/Latinas, the pan Hispanic people
in general, to come to work and live in the USA. This land belongs to
Allah, not to any one race. Its soil is soaked with the blood of Native
Americans. Its economic foundation was laid by African slaves over a
period of 400 years.
We express shame and disgust at the racial discrimination aimed at the
Black people of Haiti and the support given to upper class
people coming out of Cuba. The exploitation of the Dominican Republic
too is shameful.
Photos of some of the children of Gaza killed by the Israeli war
machine, armed by the U.S., were shown to the delegates of
Jamaat al-Muslimeen from seven states.
Local Jamaat al-Muslimeen: Would you like to join or help?
Information was provided by local representatives to the Shoora about

The JFK Case: It's a Fake plot to Scare Shi'ia Muslims in Trinidad
by Br. Abu Talib
The U.S. government concocted a scary but totally bogus case against
mostly Shi'a Muslims and some Sunnis from Trinidad and Guyana.
According to the government story, the defendants plotted to blow up
JFK international airport. Ridiculous as this claim is, the government
is pursuing its story to terrorize the Muslims [mostly Shi'as]. A
prominent Shi'a Muslim was extradited to the U.S. after pressure was
put on the helpless governments of Trinidad and Guyana.
An informant was used in this case as has been done often before. This
informant, strangely enough, was a security guard at the mosque of
"imam" Siraj Wahhaj, the notorious leader of the FBI-related group
known as ISNA.
One of three brothers arrested in this bogus case has been moved to
Colorado [as far as we know] to isolate him from his community.
A few people from the Shi'a community in Brooklyn have responded to our
distribution of New Trend and a defense committee for this case was set
up. Unfortunately no lawyer is willing to take the case without a heavy
sum of money.
We are distributing more literature to help Muslims understand that this is a totally bogus case.

US Muslim organizations (grudgingly) coming to their senses or maybe

to kiss the governments boots, US Muslim organizations are either coming
to their senses or perhaps maybe just playing hard to get...
While the public airing of this threat (and it IS still only a threat)
is to be noted, the parting words (noted in bold) are still disturbingly

"Move comes following incidents of FBI targeting mosques,
[Joint statement: Text]
"(WASHINGTON, D.C., 3/17/2009) – A coalition of major national Islamic
organizations today announced that it is considering suspending
outreach relations with the FBI, citing recent incidents in which
American mosques and Muslim groups have been targeted.
In a statement, the American Muslim Taskforce on Civil Rights and
Elections (AMT), said:
Muslim communities throughout the United States have made significant
advances in promoting and contributing to a fair, free and
Through civil rights advocacy, civic and political engagement, and
the promotion of dialogue with interfaith leaders and law enforcement
agencies, Muslim Americans continue to be a positive and stabilizing
force in keeping our nation safe and secure from acts of violence and
Despite fear-mongering by a vocal minority, Muslim Americans are
natural allies of law enforcement agencies in ensuring the wellbeing of
our nation. Muslims are law-abiding and productive citizens who
uphold the democratic principles of freedom, equality and justice.
Yet recent incidents targeting American Muslims lead us to consider
suspending ongoing outreach efforts with the FBI.
In California, the FBI sent a convicted criminal to pose as an agents
provocateurs in several of that state's mosques. An FBI agent allegedly
told one of the mosque attendees that the agency would make his life a
"living hell" if he did not become an informant.
The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) wrote in a recent statement,
"Trust is the cornerstone of any partnership between law enforcement
and communities. It can only be established and maintained through
clear and open communication. Without this, trust is eroded and
suspicions arise on all sides. This clearly does not serve anyone's
interests…It is now up to the FBI and law enforcement agencies to
re-engage with the Muslim American community, and re-build trust
Early last fall, the FBI began a disengagement campaign in its relations
with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's
largest and most respected Muslim civil rights organization. The FBI
suspended contacts with CAIR pending the resolution of
In response, the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California, an
umbrella organization of many Muslim groups, suspended outreach to
the FBI in February. The council's letter to the FBI stated in part:
"Our commitment to ensuring the rights, interests, and prosperity of
American Muslims and all Americans is unconditional. We hope the FBI
will have the foresight to restore its relationship with such a vital
link to the American Muslim community."
We believe the FBI's unjustified actions are based on the May 2007
designation of some 300 groups and individuals, including several major
American Muslim groups such as CAIR, the Islamic society of North
America (ISNA) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), as
"unindicted co-conspirators" (UCC) in conjunction with the Holy Land
Foundation trial in Dallas, Texas.
Making this unjust designation public violates the Justice Department's
own guidelines and wrongly implies that those listed are somehow
involved in criminal activity.
Bias and faulty premises dominated post-9/11 law enforcement analysis
of the Muslim community and the threat assessment to national security.
The waning days of the previous administration witnessed a flourishing
of anti-Muslim activity.
There is even inter-agency information being disseminated that claims
civil rights advocacy is part of a Muslim conspiracy to implement Shari'a
law in order to destroy the United States. Recent government actions
seemed to be based on this bizarre premise.
These McCarthy-era tactics are detrimental to a free society.
The credibility of all Muslim organizations who maintain ties to the
FBI that do not react decisively is undermined in the eyes of the
community. Our fear is that counter-intelligence programs are quelling
lawful dissent. (ALHAMDULILLAH FOR THESE TWO VERY
What is most frightening is that FBI abuses are no longer covert, and
are slowly being integrated into the already expansive laws regulating
law enforcement activity.
Internationally, in light of President Obama's initiative of dialogue
with the Muslim world, such actions negatively impact U.S. interests.
If the FBI does not accord fair and equitable treatment to every
American Muslim organization, including CAIR, ISNA and NAIT, then
Muslim organizations, mosques and individuals will have no choice but
to consider suspending all outreach activities with FBI offices, agents
and other personnel. This possible suspension, of course, would in no
way affect our unshakable duty to report crimes or threats of violence
to our nation.
We call on the FBI to reassess its positions on profiling and the use
of informants as agents provocateurs within the Muslim communities. We
further request objective evaluation of the sources of information and
analysis utilized to formulate decisions.
Notwithstanding such requests, we call on Muslim organizations and
individuals to petition their elected representatives to hold hearings
to address these grave matters of concern to the Muslim community.
We fully expect that the President's calls for inclusion will not be
derailed by irresponsible elements in and outside of government
fomenting anti-Muslim bias in this great nation."

Maulvi Fazlullah, Islamic jihad leader in Swat, Vows to Defend
Pakistan to the last drop of his blood
April 12, 2009: The National Peace Jirga leader Inamur Rahman met
Maulvi Fazlullah at an unknown place in Swat. The Maulvi told the peace
group that his only interest in the struggle has been that Islamic Law
[Shari'a] be implemented in Swat. He said that he will no longer fight
the Pak army if Shar'ia is implemented. If the Pak army does not put
obstacles in the way of Shar'ia, the mujahideen will not even ask for
damages for the losses they have suffered at the hands of the Pak army.
He said he fully supports the efforts of Maulana Sufi Muhammad for the
peaceful implementation of Shar'ia.
He categoically rejected the disinformation campaign by the Pak regime
that he is against Pakistan. He said that his loyalty to Pakistan is
without question and he and his people will fight to the last drop of
their blood for the defense of Pakistan.
[Maulvi Fazlullah fought the Pakistani army to a standstill and created
the situation in which Pakistan had to invite his father in law,
Maulana Sufi, to head the movement for Shari'a in Swat. He leads the
local Taliban and has solved hundreds of law cases in Swat and brought
justice to the people of Swat.]
People of Swat Answer Fake Video Distributed by pro-Western Groups:
Big Rally Condemns Indian Agent Altaf Hussain
April 6, 2009. Tens of thousands of people from all over Swat gathered
in Green Square of the capital city called Mingora. The rally organized
by the Swat Peace Movement condemned a disinformation video distributed
by pro-western groups in Pakistan known as NGO's. The video showed two
men holding down a young woman and a third whipping her while a crowd
watched and she cried.
The video was rapidly distributed all over Pakistan and pro-western
groups quickly rallied in defense of "women's rights" and demanded that
Shari'a [Islamic Law] not be implemented in Swat and that Pak military
should take action in Swat against the Taliban. Altaf Hussain, the
leader of an agent group in Karachi known as MQM, showed great distress
at the "violation of women's rights" and called for urgent action
against the Taliban. The newly re-instated Chief Justice was enlisted
in this cause.
Analysts soon noticed that the accent of the three men in the video
were not of the people of Swat. The video was six months old and no one
knew who made it, when and how.
The huge rally in Swat condemned the move against Shar'ia and condemned
Altaf Hussain's activities carried out from London. Speaker after
speaker wanted to know why thes NGO's had been silent when atrocities
were being committed against the people of Swat [including the army
action which left 500,000 people homeless].

IRAQ: Two massive New Attacks by Al-Qaida-in-Iraq: April 10 and
[This appeared in McClatchly news service. "suicide" is American
language for martyrdom operations. "Extremist" means actively opposed
BAGHDAD - A radical Islamist group thought to be a front for al Qaida
in Iraq has claimed responsibility for a Friday suicide bombing
that killed five U.S. soldiers in the northern city of Mosul.
The attack also killed two Iraqi national police officers.
In statements posted Monday on extremist Web sites, the Islamic State
of Iraq said it planned and carried out the bombing. The group also
claimed responsibility for a suicide attack that killed at least nine
U.S.-allied Sunni Muslim militiamen in southern Iraq Saturday.
The Islamic State of Iraq is regarded by the U.S. as a front group for
al Qaida in Iraq, though the group describes itself as a coalition of
several extremist organizations. In 2006, it declared an Islamic state
in Iraq's Sunni Muslim areas.
U.S. officials have said that al Qaida in Iraq has been so severely
weakened over the past year or so that it probably can no longer carry
out the massive attacks it once perpetrated. Last week's bombings, in
combination with a wider upswing in violence over the past two months,
cast doubt on those assertions, however.
U.S. troops are scheduled to withdraw from Iraqi cities in less than
two months, and President Barack Obama has pledged to pull most
Americans from the country altogether by the end of next summer. The
recent uptick in attacks here has raised concerns about what might
happen when the U.S departs.
In Monday's Web postings, the group said the attacks were part of a
plan, dubbed the "Plan of Good Harvest," announced last month to target
Americans and their supporters. "Our brother cried 'Allah is Great' and
he detonated his truck amid a large gathering of crusaders and apostates,
tearing them apart," one of the postings said. "We ask Allah to accept
our brother as a martyr and to place him in the highest rank of paradise."
The postings were translated by SITE Intelligence Group, a
Maryland-based company that monitors extremist Web sites.
