HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS: Comparison between World War II and 2009

Jews lived in prosperity and safety through out during the Muslim rule.  Nazis oppressed them famously and ever since many movies have been made about the Jewish HOLOCAUST and every year many days are devoted to mourn the holocaust.

Instead of taking the revenge from the Nazi Germany, the way USA is taking revenge for twin Towers for the last 9 years from hundreds of thousands of Muslims for the death of 4,000 people, Jews decided to put innocent Muslims, who had always protected and helped them in their trial times from the Christian rulers and populations alike, through the same holocaust and more. As a result, for the last 60 years, Palestinians are being persecuted daily by the Jews but the same world that mourns Jewish holocaust gives a blind eye to the Palestinian HOLOCAUST. One wonders why?

Look at the following pics and wonder, how a human being could do to another something like this? And why the propagators of DEMOCRACY are ignoring such heinous crimes?

THE GRANDCHILDREN OF HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS FROM WORLD WAR II ARE DOING TO THE PALESTINIAN MUSLIMS EXACTLY WHAT WAS DONE TO THEM BY NAZI GERMANY…

What would you call it?

Could all the Muslims that are incarcerated in the name of terrorism together do as much damage to any society as this? And how should the people whose dear ones have been put through this tortuous death react? Would there be any peace with this kind of ongoing wars against Muslims? Are the Muslims supposed to live in a continuous threat of their extermination and humiliating living conditions or as human beings have equal right for defense and revenge?

3 minutes shower after a week in a dirty hole!

Dylan was allowed a 3 minutes shower after a week. We all know by now that he, like his father and brother Zac, is in solitary confinement in a dirty hole like cell. I wonder why only those 3 of one family are subjected to solitary confinement while others are still better off!

The Boyd trio can only have 5 visitors, one at a time for 20 minutes with no touch behind the glass visit. They can call for 10 minutes by paying $15. They need to buy stamps, pencils, paper, soaps and other basic items from the shop on the premises; I wonder how expensive it is? They were the bread earners of the family, their Bank accounts are frozen, the money from home is confiscated, can someone figure out how are they supposed to come up with the required money to take care of their basic needs, stay connected with their family and provide for the family expenses. They are in Virginia prisons while the families are in North Carolina which adds another extra expense of a good car, gas and time. One wonders about the Government agenda!

The life is normal again for everyone except...............!

It is now over two months that those 7 innocent Muslims were indicted in Raleigh, NC. For a while many people showed keen interest in their case but the air is lull now and it seems that they are forgotten.

I wonder if the days are as fast and busy for the incarcerated people as they are for the free people! They are living in solitary confinement, from what I hear, Daniel Boyd's lights have never been turned off; they are on 24/7. Their food is slid down from a hole in the door. The guards are not allowed to talk to them. The fear that their good personalities will influence inmates to Islam has forced authorities to increase the undue torture to the innocent prisoners before they are proven guilty. The case will be brought to the court after a year, can one of those who languish others for these long periods of time, steel their years of life, put themselves in their place and think that they and their families will be able to bear all this?

After 7 years Bagram prisoners are being allowed to plead their cases. Many Guantanamo prisoners have been released after being imprisoned and tortured for a period of 7 or 8 years because they were proven innocent. It seems a normal practice of Western governments in general and American government in particular to persecute the innocents for years upon years in the name of safety and security or peace and justice for Americans and then simply say sorry and walk away without ever repenting for never repeating the same mistake again. What a bluff! Does it prove them conscientious? Does it prove them worthy of leading the world with this characterless approach?

This is Islamic month of Ramadhan in which Muslims fast from Dawn to Dusk. During this time they don't eat or drink. It is the month of physical and spiritual purification. One wonders how these innocent prisoners and thousands others like them are being treated in the prisons by the enemies of Islam. What kind of food are they provided when they start their fast and when they break it? Do they care about bringing their food on time as the God has required because it is a certain fact that the war is not against terrorism, it is against Islam and they will not leave any opportunity of increasing the torture to those who follow Islam?

Are Muslims doing anything for these people realizing that Muslims are like a body, if one part hurts, the whole body suffers, or they are busy with their feasts of Ramadhan in the name of worship?

Armageddon?

Big fear in the European and American political personnel's hearts: If Islam kept spreading with the present speed, in 10 to 20 years most of the Europe would be Muslim rather than Christian. Would it have happened if the Europeans, English and Americans didn't meddle around the Muslim world, caused turmoil in their homelands, forced them to seek refuge from war, displacement and poverty, and as a result ending up in the countries that brought that condition upon them. Whoever didn't come as a refugee was allured to come for the higher studies and pressed upon to stay back after finishing the studies because this way the Western countries were getting highly skilled people without putting much labor into them, cheap huh!

Then they were only concerned about building their nations selfishly without thinking of the brain-drain from the countries that these intelligent and skilled students came from. Then they didn't think of what would be the situation in the future, they were only concerned about their present: Nation Building! Then they didn't think that these people would settle down and have their families grow here. They were too over confident about turning them in to secular Muslims who would only live on their lands to serve their purpose. Then they forgot that there is a Supreme Power; a bigger Planner Who could turn their Chess Board in no time!

Now they are worried about what is going to happen to their societies. Pretty soon there would be no alcohol drinking, no pork eating, no pornography, no mingling of genders, no free sex, no nudity, no dance parties. People will have to respect each other; use their tongues more carefully without abusive language; Hollywood will have to be shut down; Bars will have to be closed; Las Vegas might have to be deserted etc. etc.

The prophesy says that Jesus will descend down from the heavens before Armageddon. And when he descends down, he will kill the swine, break the cross and bring such prosperity to the earth through justice that there will be no poor left to accept charity. There will be such peace on the earth that a woman could travel across with no fear of attack.

It seems that the way is being paved for Jesus' coming because once the demographic change takes place, the time is ripe for his appearance. So it will be smart to submit to the Will of God and accept the consequences of what our own hands have brought upon us and instead of killing and torturing the innocent Muslims, start searching for our own salvation because the time to be presented in front of our Lord is nearing.

What do we do now?


Islam is the only religion left uncorrupted so far. It is not the Muslims that spread Islam, it is the Creator, the God, Who makes the plans to spread His Religion and uses human beings to fulfill His plans. No matter what Human Beings try to do to stop Islam, they won't be able to stop since it is Allah's plan to spread it!

Here is a guard of Guantanamo Bay, who accepted Islam while guarding Muslims and now promoting it in the U.S. to his free countrymen!

http://muslimlinkpaper.com/index.php/tml-event.html
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsfSfs_AEE0

And here are prisoners who accept Islam after coming in contact with their Muslim inmates! So instead of fighting the Most Powerful, The God, it will be wiser to submit to His Will and accept his Religion as the Supreme.

Amid all the shocking details in the disrupted plot to bomb Bronx synagogues and fire missiles at American military aircraft, one component of the case should come as no surprise - three of the alleged culprits converted to radical Islam in prison.

Radical Islamists have targeted prison populations for recruitment for years. That's where Jose Padilla, suspected of plotting to detonate a dirty bomb and convicted of conspiracy to murder people overseas and of providing material support to terrorists, converted and was radicalized.

That's where a California man, Kevin James, created his own cell, called the Jam'iyyat Ul-Islam Is-Saheeh (JIS), and recruited other inmates to plot attacks against military and Jewish targets in and around Los Angeles.

In New York, the man who was the head Muslim chaplain for state prisons considered the 9/11 hijackers to be martyrs. Warith Deen Umar spent 20 years working with New York prisons, overseeing the hiring of Muslim chaplains and leading prayer services.

My organization, the Investigative Project on Terrorism, obtained an audio tape of a speech Umar gave in 2004. In it, he told his audience that victory for Islam would not come without loss:

"Brothers, be prepared to fight, be prepared to die, be prepared to kill. It's a part of the deen, and this ain't your brother just saying this, this is history, this is Quran, nobody can deny it. and we need to let the enemies know."

And:

"Rise up and fight. And fight them until turmoil is no more and strike terror into their hearts. You think there is no terror in Quran? It's called [word unclear] read it in the 56th surah of the Quran. There's no lack of translation, there's no mistranslation There's not one Sheikh says one thing, no, it's very clear. "When you fight, you strike terror into the heart of the disbeliever.'"

Hear the first clip here and the second clip here.

According to a 2003 column in the Wall Street Journal, a protégé of Umar's was a man named Salahuddin M. Muhammad, hired by Umar to serve as chaplain at the Fishkill Correctional Facility. Today, Muhammad is an imam at the Masjid Al-Ikhlas in Newburg, NY, where the first conversation about attacking American between defendant James Cromitie and the FBI informant took place (Muhammad is not named in the criminal complaint).

Radicalism in prisons is a problem that has been festering for years. The Department of Justice's Inspector General issued a report in 2004 with a host of recommendations for tamping it down, but there's little sign any action has been taken.

Source: The New York Post
That President Obama now wants to transfer hundreds of hardened jihadists into American prisons is a guarantee that they will serve as emissaries and proselytizers of jihad to the thousands of prisoners they are exposed to. In virtually no time, it is all but certain - based on past patterns of radical Islamic growth in jails that we have investigated - that we will witness the number of radical Islamic inmates multiply by thousands, maybe more.

The Guantanamo prisoners will be looked up as jihadi rock stars and each one could potentially produce a hundred new ticking time bombs ultimately walking the streets of America. Although the President tried to reassure us that no inmate has ever escaped from a super maximum security prison, what about the newly indoctrinated jihadists among the existing inmates who will be certainly released after their terms are up? In light of the massive damage and death that only four converts to Islam in prison could have carried out as witnessed in the interdiction of the recent terror plot, one cannot even begin to imagine the potential for damage and death a thousand times greater were there to be a whole new generation of hardened jihadists walking the streets of the US with an agenda of nothing but murder and destruction. FBI agents with whom I have spoke say that the transfer of prisoners to the US is insane, pure and simple.

Part of the problem is that there is no single agency which can change the nation's prison system, since states are responsible for their own penitentiaries and each has its own religious programming. Imams recruited by the likes of Umar continue to work, library shelves are stocked with the words of radical ideologues like Syyed Qutb and Sayyid Mawlana Abul Ala Maududi. Some prison libraries include the Nobel Quran, an extreme interpretation of Islam's holy book that includes a call for jihad.

These books are not reviewed by prison officials, perhaps due to language differences or because they are perceived simply as religious texts. DOJ, which has oversight over BOP, refuses to acknowledge the problem.

Meanwhile, federal records identified by the Investigative Project on Terrorism and available on the Internet show a number of Muslim Brotherhood-tied organizations receiving government contracts, including contracts with the Bureau of Prisons, to perform work such as chaplain services and Islamic studies.

Some, like the Muslim American Society, have dedicated prison projects in which they specifically collect money to send religious dogma to prisoners and underwrite volunteer chaplains. This effort is aimed not only at existing Muslims convicts but to convert non-Muslim inmates.

In light of the 2004 IG report, these contractual relationships with radical Islamic groups show that there still is very little oversight concerning the messengers importing religion into U.S. prisons.

Wednesday night, we saw what happens when they leave prison and follow an extremist path, buying into propaganda that the America is at war with Islam and they mobilize to act. It is time someone paid attention.

The first thing that needs to be done is to get the Bureau of Prisons to stop being able to stick its head in the sand. The Department of Justice, which oversees the Bureau of Prisons, needs to immediately set national vetting standards for all religious clergy - not just Muslim Imams but Rabbis and Priests - and all religious texts and propaganda being allowed into federal prisons. Congress needs to impose new rules that force BOP to mandate and operate strict investigations of those who preach in the prisons and the material they are allowed to import.

Wahhabist literature, Muslim Brotherhood tracts calling for Jihad, Saudi produced Qurans that exude hatred for Jews and Christians - all of this continues to flow into federal and local prisons unhampered.

To those who say this is a violation of the free practice of religion or free speech, that is pure nonsense: Like government officials who are denied clearances based on background checks, Islamic chaplains who do not pass certain clearance standards can also be denied the right to enter prisons. That does not stop them from practicing their religion; it only stops them from spreading their ideology in government institutions. And, incidentally, the Bureau of Prisons should not be allowed to set the criteria: We found out that in 2004, the way the BOP determined whether an Imam was a radical was to simply ask them if they supported terrorism. If they said no - and of course they all all did - they were granted admission.

Another problem that needs to be fixed is that in jail, Islamist converts generally avoid violence for fear of upsetting the prison authorities. Therefore there is little if any incentive for the warden or prison officials to keep tabs on the activities of the Islamist prisoners - or for that matter Aryan nation prisoners - or what they are being taught or what is in their libraries.

Unless prison authorities start collecting intelligence on those in prison who belong to radical groups and who talk about carrying out violence once they get out, law enforcement is faced with a total blank slate, critically dependent upon confidential informants to help them thwart terrorist attacks. If not for the serendipitous appearance of a confidential informant in the current Bronx case, chances are that today we would be witness terror and death in the Jewish Community Center of Riverdale.

Limitations on prison sentences

Submitted by Always On Watch, May 25, 2009 08:42

Most in our system of prisons do not serve full terms. As mentioned in the essay here:

Another problem that needs to be fixed is that in jail, Islamist converts generally avoid violence for fear of upsetting the prison authorities. Therefore there is little if any incentive for the warden or prison officials to keep tabs on the activities of the Islamist prisoners - or for that matter Aryan nation prisoners - or what they are being taught or what is in their libraries.

Criminals and their attorneys are smart enough to work the system and gain early release for time served and good behavior.

I wonder how many incarcerated Muslims various Muslims "civil rights groups" represent right now? Such a list might be another tool to protect our nation.

It still may not be too late

So We sent on them: the flood, the locusts, the Qummal, the frogs, and the blood; manifest signs, yet they remained arrogant, and they were of those people who were criminals. And when the punishment struck them, they said: "O Musa! Invoke your Lord for us because of His promise to you. If you remove the punishment from us, we indeed shall believe in you, and we shall let the Children of Israel go with you.'' But when We removed the punishment from them to a fixed term, which they had to reach, behold! they broke their word!) (7:133-135)

Above are a couple of verses from the Quran. What a person of common sense can learn from these verses are a few lessons, some of them could be: 1) the human history repeats itself with the changed names. Then Faroah was the oppressor and Israelis were the oppressed ones while now Israelis are the oppressors and the Muslims are the oppressed ones. 2) God is always with the weaker ones because most of the time they are on the Right Path or close to it. Then He was with the Israelis now He is with the Muslims! 3) Human beings try to inflict the same pains on others that they suffer from rather than trying to save others from the pains that they have tasted unless they follow the True Religion of their Creator, then only their hearts get filled with the light of the truth and mercy from the God and they show mercy to others. Until the creation of the State of Israel, Jews were pushed around and were persecuted by the Christians. As soon as they got the State of Israel, they started terrorizing and persecuting Muslims worse than what was done to them by others instead of realizing the pains and avoiding to inflict them on their fellow human beings.

Armageddon is around the corner. World is going to come to an end. Then wouldn't it be smart not to take the burden of others' sins by killing or torturing them to death? And wouldn't it be smart to try to save our souls rather than bodies? All the intelligence is being wasted on finding the ways of destroying other nations, religions, societies; trying to develop all the possible means of humiliating and torturing other human beings whose culture doesn't match ours. Shouldn't our efforts be directed to saving the humanity rather than destroying it? Shouldn't our time be spent on searching the truth for eternal peace rather than suppressing it and trying to distort it such that nobody can recognize it?

Another case to be explored

The man came as a student, studied diligently, became US Citizen, got married, settled down and was remembered as a model citizen by his neighbors and friends throughout his stay in the US. Being a good Muslim he started helping a charity organization voluntarily in his spare time. The Organization collected some donations from around the world and transferred to Saudi Arabia to be used for the charity work. Pete didn't imagine that he will have to pay tax for a sum that was neither earned in the US nor used, it was basically being transferred from one end to the other. It could easily be considered a genuine mistake and the matter could be settled, if need be, by imposing required fine, if any.

But that is not what happened! He was harassed by the FBI, indicted in made up cases and to save himself from the imprisonment, seeing what might be coming, he ran out of the country.

That is not the end of the story. Who knows which agent, in the guise of friend and adviser, advised him to come back to the US since they don't have any substantial evidence against him, he could fight his case in the Court and be absolved of the false accusations. He came back.

Guess what happened! He was whisked from the airport and his whereabouts have not been known ever since, it has been two years or so. Read Afia Siddiqui's case and there are too many similarities.

Whatever the case, it establishes one factor very solidly: they are after every practising intelligent Muslim who could be of any value to the Muslims and Muslim community. I wonder what could you call it? Go to the following link and read and appreciate the democracy that is being spread by bombs and missiles.

War on Terror? Nay.

War on terror? Nay, it is war on Islam. How? Tell you how. Any Muslim that paractises Islam, has self-esteem, is intelligent, knows his rights as a human being, stands up for his religion, tries to stop excesses of other nations to his Muslim nation is tagged as an al-qa'idah operative or a Talibaan. And al-qaidah and talibaan are the symbol of terrorism, in turn he/she is a terrorist and eligible for elimination.

Would anybody differ?

THERE IS A HIGHER POWER.

THERE IS A HIGHER POWER.
YES THERE IS A HIGHER POWER.
YEAH THERE IS A HIGHER POWER.

A power that brings Katrina, tsunami, hurricane, tornadoes, strong winds, causes wild-fires, earth-quakes, strikes with the lightening whoever and wherever it chooses.

A power that causes death to anyone anytime anywhere, leaving behind everybody else helpless. Can anybody deny it? I don't think so. Then why do we live so carefree, suppressing people's rights, oppressing innocents, torturing helpless, threatening the weak ones, ruining the lands that are people's livelihood? Don't we fear that the Higher Power that is in control of everything in existence could be outraged by our arrogance and extravagance, and could take revenge of all those that have been wronged?

Daniel Boyd, his two sons and 4 other prisoners are being kept in solitary confinement as if they have committed heinous crimes. Their arrest is so far on the pretext that they were going to commit certain crimes while those who have raped, murdered, tortured and destroyed properties of peaceful civilians are running around free, like Prince of Blackwater, Uzbaki Dustam, Dick Cheney, Rumsfeld, Bush, CIA personnel, Lindsey of Abu Ghuraib and God knows how many thousands of others who have proven record of heinous crimes against the humanity in general and Muslims in particular.

Not only that they are tortured through solitary confinement with the sleep deprivation techniques, they are imprisoned so far away from their families that the family members have to travel three hours each way to visit only one of them at a time. That means they have to travel 3 times if they want to see all three of them; one trip per person!

That is not enough, their family's account is frozen so they have no money to take care of their family expenses. They have no money and their bread earners are in the prison. What is the real agenda behind this whole set up? Muhammad Boyd's wife has given birth to a baby boy. How many fathers are there who would agree with the first-born being deprived of his father's presence in his life when he comes to this unfriendly world? Or now the babies are also going to be tortured just because they are born to a Muslim father? Is this democracy that America is trying to spread through guns and bombs to the Muslim world? Is this considered a civilized society?

In the name of liberation people's rights are being swallowed left and right! Can someone come up with an idea as to how to end this ongoing persecution?

Are the Prisons safe now?

So now the Muslim prisoners can't even be placed in the prinsons since they spread Islam there! The only option left is "SOLITARY CONFINEMENT". May be half of American land could be reserved for prison system where all the Muslims from every corner of the earth can be imported and placed in solitary confinement. Or just kill every single one of them on the earth. They are like BACTERIA, that are uncontrollable, the more you spray, the stronger they get! HUH!

By the way keeping in line with my suggestion, Daniel Boyd and his buddies are placed in Solitary Confinement, even though legally they are still innocent (but their biggest crime is Islam). Not only that, the so called Ring Leader has not been allowed even to speak to his wife or be visited by her! I wonder if he is still in one piece. Would anybody dare the state terrorism?

Submitted by Always On Watch, May 25, 2009 08:42

Most in our system of prisons do not serve full terms. As mentioned in the essay here:

Another problem that needs to be fixed is that in jail, Islamist converts generally avoid violence for fear of upsetting the prison authorities. Therefore there is little if any incentive for the warden or prison officials to keep tabs on the activities of the Islamist prisoners - or for that matter Aryan nation prisoners - or what they are being taught or what is in their libraries.

Criminals and their attorneys are smart enough to work the system and gain early release for time served and good behavior.

I wonder how many incarcerated Muslims various Muslims "civil rights groups" represent right now? Such a list might be another tool to protect our nation.

Is Western World more secure now?

All the people that have proven record of hard criminality are free whether they are US citizens, like Bush administration, CIA personnel and Black Water Company or Afghans, like Uzbaki Doustam whose atrocities are well documented, who actually could be considered the reason for the creation of Taliban because of his rape and murder of innocent Pashtun men women and children. The reason being that their cruelty was pointed to the Muslims. On the other hand innocent Muslims like Daniel Boyd, Dr. Rafil, Dr. Ali Tamimi, Dr. Afia Siddiqui, Ali Asad and thousands of others are incarcerated, tortured and put in to solitary confinement in the worst living conditions just because they are either assumed criminals or indicted with false charges. Have people in authority forgotten their own death that can approach them any instant and would leave no time to repent!

Following are the two transcripts from NPR with the links, please read the transcripts, listen to the story and check all those PDF files that are linked to this blog and also can be found on NPR.Org.

Can anyone put himself/herself or his/her loved ones in the position of those who are being subjected to this inhuman treatment and think that they would have no sense of revenge. Death is much easier than what is being done to these people in return, almost all of whom are not even those who might have, if at all, caused 9/11!

Can you imagine America being safer with these tactics. Either there should be strict boundries inside which every country keeps its citizens confined so that there is no mingling, no danger or there should be sense of mutual respect and regard to each others rights so that people can live in harmony, safe and sound. But the way American government is proceeding against the Muslims, the result can only be worse!

CIA Report Details Interrogation Techniques

Listen to the Story
Morning Edition
[4 min 4 sec]

When Attorney General Eric Holder announced Monday that he would have a prosecutor look into possible abuse of detainees by the CIA, he said he was partly motivated by newly declassified documents from 2004 that provide details of the interrogations and the range of abuses inside the CIA's overseas prisons.
Read The CIA Report
CIA 2004 Inspector General's Report On Detention And Interrogation (19 MB)
CIA IG Report Conclusions
Read about techniques used during CIA interrogations, including threats to hurt al-Qaida suspects' family members.
The Justice Department just released parts of the 2004 report, which was previously released in 2007 but was so redacted that it revealed little new information. The less censored version is the largest single release of information about the Bush administration's detainee interrogation program so far.
The use of enhanced interrogation techniques, such as waterboarding and stress positions, has been known for some time. What is new is the chronology of other methods interrogators decided to employ on their own.
Interrogators threatened to kill and possibly sexually assault members of detainees' families — which violates anti-torture laws. And there were more basic abuses, such as stepping on shackles, washing someone with a wire brush, blowing smoke constantly in a detainee's face until he started to throw up and dousing detainees with water.
There was also something called "the hard takedown," which essentially meant grabbing a detainee and throwing him to the floor before moving him to a sleep-deprivation cell.
The report describes an episode in July 2002, before the Justice Department had formally authorized harsh methods, in which a CIA interrogator grabbed a detainee's neck and restricted the flow of the carotid artery until the detainee began to faint. The CIA then "shook the detainee to wake him." He did that same pressure-point technique two more times.
There are a number of ominous entries. One begins: "By November 2002, the agency had Abu Zubaydah and another high value detainee, Abd al-Nashiri, in custody." It is followed by a large block of blacked out text and then the sentence "and the Office of Medical Services provided medical care to the detainees." Clearly something bad happened before the medical services were called in, but it is unclear what it was.
Also redacted are the names and locations where these abuses took place.
The report also makes clear that some CIA agents were worried about what they were doing. The report says some CIA agents were worried they would wind up on some "wanted list" and would end up having to appear before the World Court for war crimes because of what they did. Another said "10 years from now, we're going to be sorry we're doing this."
As a general matter, inspector general reports like this one contain a roster of recommendations for the agency under review to follow — generally to ensure that abuses won't happen again.
This report is no different. There are four pages of recommendations, but they are all blacked out.

CIA Documents: 'Black Sites,' White Noise And Intel

by Kevin Whitelaw
August 25, 2009

The Justice Department released a set of documents Monday night, including many legal opinions related to the CIA's interrogation and detention program.

Most of the attention was focused on the 2004 report by the CIA's inspector general, but the other documents provide new windows into the details of the CIA's now-shuttered network of secret prisons overseas, as well as its treatment of al-Qaida detainees. They also describe how the interrogation program evolved after the inspector general report revealed a series of alleged abuses.

Here are some notable excerpts from the new documents:

The Detainee Experience

A 2004 document prepared by the CIA offers a stark account of the typical treatment of a high-value al-Qaida detainee. It began with the initial rendition, where the prisoner was flown to a secret CIA prison, called a "Black Site" in the document. "During the flight, the detainee is securely shackled and is deprived of sight and sound through the use of blindfolds, earmuffs, and hoods," the document says. After an initial interview, unless the suspect was unusually cooperative, he was taken to a cell, stripped naked, fitted with a diaper and shackled vertically as part of the sleep deprivation process. Officials also described a typical interrogation session as interrogators moved through a series of increasingly harsh techniques, including facial slaps and cramped confinement, if they thought the detainee was withholding information. These techniques were often combined to increase their effectiveness.

Read The 2004 Document (PDF).

Conditions In The CIA's Secret Overseas Prisons

A 2006 Justice Department memo offers surprisingly specific descriptions of the standards at the CIA's overseas prisons. "The CIA plays white noise in the walkways of the detention facilities to prevent detainees from being able to communicate with each other while they are being moved within the facilities," the memo says, offering decibel readings from inside the cells and in the halls. The cells were lighted 24 hours a day (by two 17-watt T-8 fluorescent bulbs — "about the same brightness as an office.") Some of the more cooperative detainees were given eyeshades to help them sleep. Steven Bradbury, the principal deputy assistant attorney general at the time, wrote in the memo that these measures were legal because they were designed not to punish prisoners, but instead for the security of CIA personnel. He added that while courts had found some of the measures illegal in certain circumstances, they should be permitted in the CIA prisons. "Because the CIA detains only the extremely dangerous individuals whom it has determined to pose serious threats to the United States or to be planning terrorist attacks ... its interest in being able to observe its detainees at all times is considerably greater, in most circumstances, than the need to keep a pretrial detainee under constant surveillance in a U.S. prison or jail."

Read The 2006 Memo (PDF).

Interrogations After 2006

After the CIA emptied its secret prisons in September 2006 and sent the remaining detainees to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, it asked for Justice Department guidance on resuming an interrogation program. CIA officials were seeking permission to use a reduced number of interrogation techniques, omitting the most controversial ones, including waterboarding. They proposed using measures like facial slaps and sleep deprivation, which they said were "the most indispensable to the effectiveness of the interrogation program." In his reply on July 20, 2007, Steven Bradbury, the principal deputy assistant attorney general at the time, wrote that the Justice Department agreed the CIA's proposal did not violate any of the new U.S. laws barring mistreatment of detainees. For example, he found that the CIA program does not meet the definition of "cruel treatment" or "outrages upon personal dignity" as laid out in the Geneva Conventions. He also noted that the program was carefully limited. From March 2002 through 2006, the CIA held only 98 detainees, 30 of whom had been subjected to so-called enhanced techniques.

Read The 2007 Reply (PDF).

Were The Interrogations Effective?

Former Vice President Dick Cheney asked the CIA to declassify two memos that he said showed that the interrogation program produced vital intelligence. One is a 2005 CIA report that says detainee reporting was "pivotal" in the war against al-Qaida. While there are many problems with detainee accounts, the CIA says interrogations produced information that helped lead to the capture of additional terrorist suspects, helped to thwart terrorist plots, and built a more complete portrait of how the al-Qaida network functioned. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, for example, "provided information that set the stage for the detention of Hambali," the leader of Jemaah Islamiya, a large Indonesian affiliate of al-Qaida. The report claimed that detainee interrogations also helped lead to the arrest of Jose Padilla, who originally was accused of planning to set off a radioactive device, but was convicted only on charges of supporting terrorism. The report does not, however, make any distinction between information obtained through conventional interrogations and that extracted using harsh techniques like waterboarding.

Go figure!

I wonder if a new case is being established in the Media to clamp another Muslim in the name of security of American public! Look at how the story is developed and then connected with the Palestine and eventually, I wonder, to terrorism!

There is Rush Limbaugh as well who talks against Obama, he makes worse than the cartoon of Obama with his words, one only needs to visualize. But the difference is that Rush is not a Muslim!

“Racist” Obama-Joker Artist Unmasked!

How much do you want to bet that the journalist, Mark Milian, who tracked down the creator of the Obama-Joker, was doing it so that he could write a story about how a racist Neo-Nazis Right-Winger artist was trashing the the good name of his false Messiah? Imagine his surprise when the artist turned out to be a 1st generation American of “Palestinian” decent living in Obama’s hometown of Chicago who thinks there is nothing evil about socialism and thinks that Obama is doing a better job than Bush! Furthermore, the artist is not even a Republican!

You gotta’ love it!

Firas Alkhateeb - Obama Joker Artist
Obama Joker artist unmasked: A fellow Chicagoan
L.A. Times

When cryptic posters portraying President Obama as the Joker from “Batman” began popping up around Los Angeles and other cities, the question many asked was, Who is behind the image?

Was it an ultra-conservative grassroots group or a disgruntled street artist going against the grain?

[Uhm, don't forget to mention "racist Neo-Nazi Right-Winger Republican!" LOL!]

Nope, it turns out, just a 20-year-old college student from Chicago.

Bored during his winter school break, Firas Alkhateeb, a senior history major at the University of Illinois, crafted the picture of Obama with the recognizable clown makeup using Adobe’s Photoshop software.

Alkhateeb had been tinkering with the program to improve the looks of photos he had taken on his clunky Kodak camera. The Joker project was his grandest undertaking yet. Using a tutorial he’d found online about how to “Jokerize” portraits, he downloaded the October 23 Time Magazine cover of Obama and began digitally painting over it.

Four or five hours later, he happily had his product.

Original Obama JokerOn Jan. 18, Alkhateeb uploaded the image to photo-sharing site Flickr (shown at right). Over the next two months, he amassed just a couple thousand hits, he said.

Then the counter exploded after a still-anonymous rogue famously found his image, digitally removed the references to Time Magazine, captioned the picture with the word “socialism” and hung printed copies around L.A., making headlines.

[...]

Flickr had removed the Joker image due to copyright-infringement concerns, Alkhateeb says the company told him in an e-mail. A Flickr spokeswoman declined to comment due to a company policy that bars discussing inquiries about individual users.

[Yup, that's a typical tactic we've seen used by Obamites time and time again to circumvent the 1st Amendment and silence Obama's critics.]

Alkhateeb says he wasn’t actively trying to cover his tracks, but he did want to lay low. He initially had concerns about …

… connecting his name with anything critical of the president — especially living in Chicago, where people are “very, very liberal,” he said.

“After Obama was elected, you had all of these people who basically saw him as the second coming of Christ,” Alkhateeb said. “From my perspective, there wasn’t much substance to him.”

“I abstained from voting in November,” he wrote in an e-mail. “Living in Illinois, my vote means close to nothing as there was no chance Obama would not win the state.” If he had to choose a politician to support, Alkhateeb said, it would be Ohio Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich.

[...]

Although Alkhateeb claims he was making no political statement with the artwork, he’s plugged into the Washington debate. Though born in the United States, his Palestinian family closely follows Middle Eastern politics.

“I think he’s definitely doing better than Bush was,” Alkhateeb said of Obama.

[...]

He’s honored by Shepard Fairey’s assessment of his Joker picture, but disagrees with some of Fairey’s comments criticizing the message of the Socialism poster.

“He made a picture of Bush as a vampire,” Alkhateeb said about Fairey. “That’s kind of speaking with two faces.”

Regardless, Alkhateeb does agree with the Obama “Hope” artist about “socialism” being the wrong caption for the Joker image. “It really doesn’t make any sense to me at all,” he said. “To accuse him of being a socialist is really … immature. First of all, who said being a socialist is evil?”

“…First of all, who said being a socialist is evil?” He obviously hasn’t been paying attention if he seriously asks that question.

In short, Firas, these United States of America were created as a constitutional republic. The structure and governance of which are defined in the Constitution. Nevertheless, over the years many who like the idea of socialism, rather than move their happy ass to a socialist country and “do socialism” there, have tried to turn the USA into a socialist country.

This country has been built on self-reliance, perseverance, ingenuity, and personal responsibility. None of those character traits are supported by or part of a socialist mindset. A socialist relies on the state for their sustenance and needs. A socialist is not willing work for what he wants; the government provides all, though scarcity is often a byproduct of socialism. Because the socialist can just suck off the teat of government there is no motivation to truly innovate. And as evidenced by our current state of litigiousness, a socialist avers any personal responsibility for the above character flaws; it is always someone else’s fault that they don’t have whatever.

Having stated all that, I don’t want to argue the fact that you might see nothing wrong with socialism, most of Europe agrees. However, if one wishes to live in a socialist nation, with all that comes with it, move. The USA is not a socialist country, never was. I hope it never is. So to answer your question, being socialist is not evil. However, trying to change a nation built on a better foundation and co-opting the processes of the republic and voice of the people thereof, that is evil.

I notice no particulars are given when Alkhateeb says that he believes Barry is doing a better job than Bush. In which arena? How does A-teeb feel about the war in Iraq? It has become declasse to protest now that Bush isn’t the warmongering president the left portrayed him to be. I see no protesting at our local Unitarian non-church, see no bumper stickers anymore about “this endless war”, and hear nothing on the news about how our troops are messing up, killing civilians.
So what’s the point, A-teeb? So now you know how to photoshop. Uh-huh. Now what? If Barry were doing a better job than Bush, why is he so afraid to ‘connect his name with anything critical of the president”?

A Book that is blamed for teaching Terrorism

Here is a page from the Qur’an, the contents of which are criticized greatly, and with reference to which Muslims are condemned to death. I would really appreciate if someone could point out the evil part of it. Please be candid, we all need to express ourselves clearly, within the bounds of decency of course, if we want to live in harmony.

The page is from the 2nd Chapter of the Qur’an, called Chapter of “Cow”, verses: 135-143:

135. And they say, "Be Jews or Christians, then you will be guided." Say, "Nay, (We follow) only the religion of Abraham, Hanifa [Islamic Monotheism, i.e. to worship none but Allah (Alone)], and he was not of those who worshipped others along with Allah."

136. Say, "We believe in Allah and that which has been sent down to us and that which has been sent down to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and to the twelve sons of Jacob, and that which has been given to Moses and Jesus, and that which has been given to the Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and to Him (Allah) we have submitted."

137. So if they believe in the like of that which you believe, then they are rightly guided, but if they turn away, then they are only in opposition. So Allah will suffice you against them. And He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.

138. [Our Sibghah (religion) is] the Sibghah (Religion) of Allah (Islam) and which religion can be better than Allah's? And we are His (Allah's) worshippers.

139. Say, "Dispute you with us about Allah while He is our Lord and your Lord? And we are to be rewarded for our deeds and you for your deeds. And we are sincere to Him in worship and obedience."

140. Did you say that Ibrahim (Abraham), Isma'il (Ishmael), Ishaque (Isaac), Ya'qub (Jacob) and the twelve sons of Jacob were Jews or Christians? Say, "Do you know better or does Allah? And who is more unjust than he who conceals the testimony he has from Allah [i.e. to believe in Prophet Muhammad Peace be upon him when he comes, as is written in the bibles(See Verse 7:157)]? And Allah is not unaware of what you do."

141. That was a nation who has passed away. They shall receive the reward of what they earned, and you of what you earn. And you will not be asked of what they used to do.

142. The fools among the people will say, "What has turned them (Muslims) from their prayer direction (towards Jerusalem)to which they were used to face in prayer." Say, (O Muhammad ) "To Allah belong both, east and the west. He guides whom He wills to a Straight Way."

143. Thus We have made you a balanced and just nation, that you be witnesses over mankind and the Messenger (Muhammad ) be a witness over you. And We made the Qiblah (prayer direction towards Jerusalem) which you used to face, only to test those who followed the Messenger (Muhammad ) from those who would turn on their heels (i.e. disobey the Messenger). Indeed it was great (heavy) except for those whom Allah guided. And Allah would never make your faith (prayers) to be lost (i.e. your prayers offered towards Jerusalem). Truly, Allah is full of kindness, the Most Merciful towards mankind.

As much as Muslims are labeled as terrorists, deriving their instructions from the Qur'an, the reality is that Muslims are on defense while the Western powers, in line with their historical reputation, are always on offense. One only needs to go through their history, recorded by their own historians, what they did as Crusaders, against American Indians, against Jews, their own people who opposed him or stood against their colonialism, against Black Africa taking them as slaves, against socialism, communism and whatever ism they don't like, and now against Muslims exclusively, because in truth their under currents have never ever stopped against Muslims throughout the history. The funny part is that Islam is blamed to have spread through the sword, an outlandish accusation, while the history tells a totally different story!

Another victim in the offing!

Another victim in the offing! So now it is very clear that anybody and everybody who participated in the "Jihad" against Russians in collaboration with CIA and the US Government run at the time by Reagon is going to be indicted in terrorism as long as the person is a Muslim and has the ability to speak for Muslims. So watch out Muslims, the altar of death is being prepared for all those who proclaim that THERE IS NO GOD EXCEPT THE ONE GOD and the Prophet Muhammad is His last Messenger, and Jesus was also one of the Messengers from the lineage of Abraham and Isaac. By the way the word Sharia simply means the Universal Law of the God sent for the Guidance of the Mankind!

Read the following article by one of the hatred mongers:

Spokeswoman for NC jihadist has her own radical past
By creeping Sharia.com

Several local North Carolina news outlets are quoting Khalilah Sabra, director of the Raleigh chapter of the Muslim American Society (MAS), regarding the arrests of homegrown Islamic terrorists in that state. What do those news outlets, like My NC and News & Observer know about the Boyd’s spokeswoman and MAS?

Daniel (aka “Saifullah” or “Sword of God”) Boyd, his two sons, and four others were arrested and charged with planning violent jihad. When Sabra was asked by The News & Observer about the arrests of the North Carolina jihad suspects, she responded:

“It’s an illusion. Either the defendants have created an illusion, or the agents have created an illusion, but the reality has yet to be seen.”

My NC reported Sabra defending Boyd against any jihad charges:

Boyd asked Khalilah Sabra of the Muslim American Society to read the statement issued earlier Tuesday. Boyd’s two sons Dylan Boyd, 22, and Zakariya Boyd, 20, are also named in the federal indictment.

“He was there fighting against the Soviets with the full backing of the United States government,” Sabra said. “She does not want Afghanistan to be used to connect him with any kind of terrorism.”

“I think he thought it was part of his patriotic duty as a Muslim and an American to go there and fight.”

Do readers and news outlets know that Khalilah Sabra, like Boyd – a convert to Islam, also lived and trained in Pakistan like Boyd and therefore is defending herself when defending Boyd’s mujahid experience?

Do they know she was recruited to Pakistan by the so-called “godfather of jihad” and “one time mentor to Osama bin Laden” who was in the United States recruiting mujahid?

Do they know Khalilah Sabra was one of the people Osama bin Laden’s mentor did recruit to Pakistan?

Does anyone in the media care? Does the FBI care? Do any of our elected politicians care?

One politician – Larry Shaw, a North Carolina state senator – apparently had no concerns about Sabra’s recruitment by the “godfather of jihad”. Shaw actively mentored Sabra despite the fact that she was recruited by bin Laden’s mentor and know one really knows what she did in Pakistan or who she interacted with.

Sabra arrived back in the United States from Pakistan a week before 9/11, received mentoring from Larry Shaw – who is also now the chairman of CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) – an unindicted co-conspirator to a Hamas funding case – and then became director of the Muslim American Society’s Raleigh chapter.

Sabra’s activism can be traced to her childhood in Los Angeles as the daughter of a white Navy officer and a black woman. Her birth name was Christina Couzin, and even as a teenager, she was drawn to revolutionary ideas.

In high school, she invited a communist to speak to her Roman Catholic high school class. After graduating, she met a group of Muslims at the local mall. One month later — and much to her late parents’ chagrin — Christina converted to Islam and became Khalilah.

She soon met Muslims from Sudan, Saudi Arabia and other parts of the Middle East at a mosque near UCLA, and her eyes were opened to the cultural and historical circumstances of Muslims around the world. In 1988, Abdullah Yusuf Azzam, the godfather of jihad and onetime mentor to Osama bin Laden, spoke at her mosque.

Azzam came to the United States to recruit fighters and humanitarian volunteers to help the mujahedeen in Afghanistan in its war against the Soviet invaders. A charismatic leader, he was at the time supported by the U.S. government. Sabra was impressed and eventually agreed to go with him to Afghanistan.

For about a year, she lived in Peshawar, Pakistan, and made regular trips to nearby Afghan refugee camps delivering food and medicine. In 1989, Azzam was assassinated and Sabra returned to the United States. But her days of international travel were far from over.

In Los Angeles, she married Jihad Sabra, a Lebanese man and a U.S. citizen, and the couple moved to Lebanon, where Sabra saw firsthand the consequences of the Israeli and Syrian occupations of that country. It was after a funeral for a child killed by Israeli bombs when it first occurred to Sabra that she might effect change in the Middle East by lobbying her own government to change its policies toward Israel.

“As an American my voice might be heard louder than the Lebanese who suffers,” she said.

Sabra, her husband and five children arrived in Raleigh one week before the events of 9/11 when Jihad Sabra was reassigned to Cisco’s Research Triangle office.

Her political views, she acknowledges, have evolved. She used to support armed resistance to aggression, and now believes in dialogue and peaceful resistance.

That information is directly from a News & Observer piece we covered in 2008. Oddly enough, at some point after we here at Creeping Sharia wrote about it, and both the author of the piece and Sabra herself left comments on our blog, both the News & Observer and the Shaw University Mosque websites revised their stories with shorter versions of the story on their respective websites.

All discussion of Khalilah Sabra being recruited by Azzam and admitting her support of armed resistance were removed and remain absent in republications of the story that remain online. However, we have copies of the original from multiple sources and you can see the full version of the story here or in PDF format here. Expect those to disappear soon too as Sabra and Shaw climb their respective political ladders.

What Sabra learned from her recruiter Abdullah Yusuf Azzam is unclear, yet what ‘Azzam espoused is quite clear:

‘Abdullah Yusuf ‘Azzam (1941-89), a Palestinian who fled to Jordan after the Six-Day war, adopted many elements of both Ibn Taymiya, an early fourteenth century Islamic scholar who laid the philosophical groundwork for the Islamic fundamentalism adopted by Saudi Arabia centuries later, and [Sayyid] Qutb to promote the belief in an inevitable clash of civilizations. He emphasized the necessity of violent revolution through jihad against both secular governments in majority Muslim states and against the West. He is credited with being the first Sunni Islamic figure to instill the Islamic community with a divine myth of invincibility of jihad and terrorism.[53]

‘Azzam was a major intellectual influence upon Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda.[54]

Could that be where Sabra got the notion that it was Boyd’s patriotic duty as a Muslim to wage jihad in Afghanistan where she also aided the mujahideen? Again from Middle East Forum on the intellectual origins of al Qaeda:

Rather, they are a synthesis of two interlinked and equally important sources of influence: first, the teachings of ‘Abdallah ‘Azzam, the leader of the Afghan mujahideen during the 1980s; and second, the Saudi opposition movement which arose in the early 1990s and sought to Islamize Saudi society in response to a perceived Western “cultural attack” on the Muslim world.

There, many Saudis—including Osama bin Laden—became followers of ‘Abdallah ‘Azzam. A Palestinian who fled to Jordan after the Six-Day war, ‘Azzam joined the Muslim Brotherhood and obtained a doctorate in Islamic law from Cairo’s Al-Azhar University in 1973 before settling down to teach Islamic law at the University of Jordan. He was fired for involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood and moved to Saudi Arabia where, in 1981, he joined the faculty of King ‘Abd al-‘Aziz University in Jeddah. He did not stay long and traveled to Islamabad and then to the Pakistan-Afghanistan frontier to organize the anti-Soviet jihad. Bin Laden became ‘Azzam’s close ally, assisting him with finance and logistics.

‘Azzam argued that it was the personal obligation (fard al-‘ayn) of every Muslim to defend Islamic lands against the penetration of the infidels. This duty was no different than the responsibility to fast or pray. A son neither would need his father’s approval nor a wife her husband’s approval to fulfill it.[10] Primary responsibility for the fight against occupation of the infidels rested upon the victimized residents but, if they did not possess force enough to resist, every Muslim should join them in battle.[11] Waging war against Soviet-occupied Afghanistan and Israel were the highest priorities because these two states represented beachheads from which the infidels would expand. However, ‘Azzam argued Afghanistan was more urgent because the battles at the time were at their peak and because in Afghanistan the resistance was purely Muslim; there were no Christian populations, as there are on the West Bank.[12]

Several Saudi ulema endorsed ‘Azzam’s ideas. He also claimed to have the endorsement of Sheikh ‘Abd al-Aziz bin Baz, head of the Council for Senior Ulema, the highest religious authority in Saudi Arabia, though he offered no proof for this claim.[13] However, he went beyond the concerns articulated by the Saudi ulema: he made the struggle an individual one, giving up on the idea that Muslim states are able to defend Muslim soil. He also shifted the struggle from the sociocultural to military dimension. While his colleagues in Saudi Arabia preached about the dangers of Western penetration into the Muslim world, ‘Azzam transformed his ideas into a successful armed struggle for which he eventually sacrificed his life, dying with two of his sons in a November 1989 explosion in Peshawar, apparently the work of Soviet agents. It was this legacy of an active, armed, and nongovernmental struggle against Western penetration that he bequeathed to bin Laden when the war in Afghanistan ended in a Soviet defeat.

Clearly, Sabra’s recruiter was a monumental figure in the Islamic jihadi ideology that prevails today. While she may absolve herself by stating, “She used to support armed resistance to aggression, and now believes in dialogue and peaceful resistance,” her defense aligns perfectly with the Muslim Brotherhood’s directive to its American entities:

The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ’sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers [Muslims] so that it is eliminated and God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and we have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet.

A mission as significant and huge as the settlement mission needs magnificent and exhausting efforts. As for the role of the Ikhwan, it is the initiative, pioneering, leadership, raising the banner and pushing people in that direction [Jihad]. They are then able to employ, direct, and unify Muslims’ efforts and powers for this process. In order to do that, we must possess a mastery of the art of “coalitions”, the art of “absorption” and the principles of “cooperation”.

Sabra’s employer, MAS, was founded by the Muslim Brotherhood. Shaker Elsayed, a top MAS official admitted to the Chicago Tribune:

“Ikhwan [Brotherhood] members founded MAS, but MAS went way beyond that point of conception,” he says.

But to be an “active” member–the highest membership class–one must complete five years of Muslim community service and education, which includes studying writings by Brotherhood ideologues al-Banna and Qutb.

There are about 1,500 active members, including many women. Elsayed says about 45 percent of those members belong to the Brotherhood.

MAS’ precise connection to the Brotherhood is a sensitive issue, says Mohamed Habib, a high-ranking Brotherhood official in Cairo.

“I don’t want to say MAS is an Ikhwan entity,” he says. “This causes some security inconveniences for them in a post-Sept. 11 world.”

The Qutb again mentioned is Sayyid Qutb, former leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and proponent of offensive jihad. Qutb helped form the ideologies of Khalilah Sabra’s recruiter ‘Azzam, and both Qutb and ‘Azzam are credited with forming the ideological basis for terrorist group al Qaeda. We can presume being a director at MAS is one of the highest membership classes and hence Sabra must have studied Qutb to achieve a leadership position with the Brotherhood-founded MAS.

Are Americans supposed to believe that homegrown jihadists are an “illusion” when the woman making the claim was recruited by one of the founders of al Qaeda? A woman who rather than work with DHS, challenges them; who rather than fight against jihad actually aided mujahideen in Afghanistan and is now reading statements on behalf of accused jihadists?

Are Americans supposed to be comforted by an American woman who converted to Islam, was recruited by bin Laden’s mentor – the “godfather of jihad” and member of the Muslim Brotherhood? Are we to believe her claims to have changed her views on armed resistance when she defends a suspected jihadist whom she believes was being patriotic in waging jihad? Not to mention her receiving tutelage from a Democratic state senator who is now the chairman of a group which both Democrat and Republican members of Congress, and the FBI, have recommended not having any involvement with over connections to terror group Hamas.

The Jawa Report also details another oddity related to the North Carolina jihad case:

…the Islamic Center of Raleigh has a peculiar way of demonstrating its’ “moderation”. In response to the arrests, a report published yesterday indicates that the center brought in a virulent racist and anti-Semite, Abdul Malik Ali, from Oakland, California to address the congregation during Friday prayers last week

In recent years, Ali has been caught making statements targeting Jews, justifying suicide bombings as Islamic martyrdom, and saying that Islamic terrorists are really freedom fighters (seven months after the 9/11 attacks no less). And in 2006, Ali gave a speech at UC-Irvine where he was videotaped standing at a podium emblazoned with a sign stating “Israel, the 4th Reich”. His DiscoverTheNetworks profile provides us with some of his greatest hits…

“In America, you’re mostly fighting with your tongue, but you should also learn how to fight with the sword.”

So any statements from anyone representing the Islamic Center of Raleigh claiming their organization is “moderate” might warrant a fair degree of skepticism. [read the entire Jawa Report post for details and links]

The 8th suspect who has gone to Pakistan to visit his father

I have a scenario and I need an answer to it. The 8th suspect Jude's father lives in Pishawar or somewhere in NWFP area of Pakistan. If his father dies from one of the drone attacks of USA, what should his course of action be? Should he take a gun and shoot as many American soldiers as possible, or being a US citizen, join the forces and help America kill some more of his father's relatives: his mother, sisters, brothers, etc.?

Will anybody answer?

Could the Raleigh & MD people do the same?

FBI Profiling of Muslims on the Rise, Says Law Caucus
By BY SUNITA SOHRABJI
indiawest.com August 13, 2009 01:38:00 PM


SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Muslim Americans are being increasingly targeted for unwarranted house searches and questioning, said Veena Dubal, staff attorney of the Asian Law Caucus, during a brown-bag seminar at the organization’s headquarters here Aug. 5.

Last October — in the waning days of the Bush administration — FBI director Robert Mueller signed new guidelines allowing broader FBI authority in pursuing potential threats to national security. The new guidelines allow agents to consider race or ethnicity in determining whether someone is a suspect.

These guidelines – which became effective Dec. 1, 2008 — allow the FBI to launch a criminal investigation against someone without any factual predicate and without approval from FBI headquarters, said Dubal. “Under the current guidelines, FBI agents are allowed to racially profile an individual if it is determined to be in the nation’s national interests,” she said, adding that the guidelines may also be used ambiguously to “prevent conduct.”

“A really negative shift has occurred,” said Dubal, who received the Northern California South Asian Bar Association’s Public Interest Attorney of the Year award in 2009.

The guidelines are similar to COINTELPRO, an FBI program used in the 50s and 60s to spy on civil rights, environmental and labor groups, with the goal of unearthing Communist ties those organizations may have had.

At Congressional hearings last May, Mueller — who continues to serve as FBI director in the Obama administration — said the guidelines simply formalized processes the FBI had begun to use, post-9/11.

President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have not indicated whether they intend to scrap the new guidelines, said Dubal. The administration has stated its commitment to ending racial profiling, but it remains unclear as to whether this will include religious profiling as well, she said.

“We understand the reluctance of some communities to sit down at the table with us. Oftentimes, the communities from which we need the most help are those who trust us the least. But it is in these communities that we must re-double our efforts,” said Mueller in a Feb. 23 talk at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, D.C.

Mueller and former attorney general John Ashcroft had been sued by Pakistani national Javaid Iqbal, who alleged he had been tortured and kept in confinement by the U.S. for more than 18 months, based solely on his race and religion. Iqbal was eventually deported back to Pakistan, but was never found to have engaged in any terrorist activity.

The Supreme Court dismissed Iqbal’s case May 18, saying he had failed to make a link between officials’ conduct and the abuse he allegedly suffered.

“The decision will make it far more difficult for other

individuals aggrieved by post-9/11 security policies to hold high-level government officials accountable for any wrongdoing, including profiling of Muslims, Arabs, South Asians, and Sikhs,” Dawinder “Dave” Sidhu told India-West.

Sidhu is a founding director of the Discrimination and National Security Initiative, which is studying the post-9/11 backlash against Muslim-Americans.

Dubal said the Supreme Court decision essentially endorsed religious and ethnic profiling as a “wartime necessity.”

Equally problematic is the practice of recruiting informants from within the community, said Dubal. The FBI has set up a Citizens’ Academy, ostensibly to train community leaders into the field-gathering techniques of the agency.

Business, civic and religious leaders, nominated by an FBI employee or previous academy graduate, are given training in several aspects of espionage, including firearms usage, evidence collection and fingerprinting.

Dubal pointed to the recent case of an Irvine, Calif., man hired by the FBI for $130,000 to infiltrate area mosques and incite people to say things about the jihad and terrorist activities.

“There’s a feeling of being under siege within the community,” she said, adding, “People start to wonder whether their friends or colleagues are spies. New people are always distrusted and never become part of the community.”

The caucus is organizing a series of town hall meetings at religious gathering places throughout the state — particularly in Stockton and Lodi, which have high concentrations of Muslim American residents — letting people know their rights while under investigation.

You do not have to talk to the FBI, said Dubal, adding that people have a right to – and should – bring an attorney along.

Federal Criminal Code 1001 makes it a crime to lie to an FBI agent, and that code is now being used to recklessly incarcerate people, said Dubal. “We tell people its better not to talk to an FBI agent, because if you do and you misrepresent yourself, you could be subject to criminal penalty.”

A household search can be conducted by the FBI without a warrant, noted Dubal.

Are those ready to take action who offered their services?



Things seem to be calm, people seem to be busy with their personal lives. Days seem to go by very fast, not giving enough time to think about anything other than personal. I wonder if Daniel Boyd, his buddies and many other innocent prisoners feel the same way as we do? Their days go by as fast as ours? Or every day is a drag for them and they are anxiously expecting us to do something for them since they are totally dependent on our abilities and interest in their affair? To feel their pains? To organize some event to defend them since they can't really do anything? I am kind of rambling because I myself don't know what to do? I am neither in good health nor am a computer savvy. I wonder if someone will offer his/her computer skills to start a fund-raising campaign for all the innocent incarcerated prisoners' needy families. Another team of people is needed to contact those lawyers who have shown interest in fighting for these prisoners free of charge. The list was collected by one of the ACLU activists in Raleigh, I am adding it underneath. You can place the result in comments on this blog:
