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 authentic Hadith. Jamaat al-Muslimeen 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 in Gaza.

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.

From Brooklyn Jamaat: Presentation to April 11 Shoora meeting
The JFK Case: It's a Fake plot to Scare Shi'ia Muslims in Trinidad & Guyana
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 playing hard to get

by Malangbaba [Louisiana]

It seems that after being kicked enough times in the teeth while trying 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 filled with an undertone of "no one will ever love as I did..."

Inshallah it is indicative (and the beginning) of more principled and dignified positions regarding the unjust tactics of the enforcement agencies...

NOTE: The above critique is aimed at MPAC, CAIR, ISNA, ICNA, and the AMT. I am not as aware of the positions of the other groups and will thus limit this to above groups.

"Move comes following incidents of FBI targeting mosques, Muslim groups
[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 pluralistic society.

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 foreign threats.

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, headlined
"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 and respect."

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 unspecified "issues."

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 IMPORTANT ACKNOWLEDGMENTS!)

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."

Jamaate Islami Karachi is calling for investigation, including that of Nawab Bugti earlier.

War News: Pakistan

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].

Obama: Days 80 and 81
IRAQ: Two massive New Attacks by Al-Qaida-in-Iraq: April 10 and April 11.

[This appeared in McClatchly news service. "suicide" is American language for martyrdom operations. "Extremist" means actively opposed to America.]

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.

How the British Obtained the Confessions of Auschwitz Commandant Höss: Torture
Robert Faurisson

Rudolf Höss was the first of three successive commandants of the Auschwitz concentration camp. He is often called "the Commandant of Auschwitz," and the general public knows of him from a book published under the title Commandant in Auschwitz. He appeared before the [Nuremberg] International Military Tribunal as a witness on April 15, 1946, where his deposition caused a sensation. ... He estimated that at Auschwitz 3,000,000 people had been exterminated, 2,500,000 of them by means of gas chambers. His confessions were false. They had been extorted from Höss by torture ...
