السلام عليكم ورحمة الله
I’ve finally managed to put this weekly update e-mail together, as it’s been extremely hectic on all fronts… there have been marches all over the country, fundraising dinners and lastly the 100’s of e-mails that have been flooding in – but the best news of the week is of course the ceasefire – Insha Allah it will hold out and the Massacre will end. It’s been a hard task disseminating so much data (some good/some bad) – I’ll try to keep future e-mails shorter by using my webspace at http://sz3cv9.spaces.live.com/ I have been blogging here regularly over the last couple of weeks – so please visit that website for full details on any articles that are of interest to you .
From Khalid Khan
The Information Clearing House is an Independent media source – It is a source of unreported (or under reported) news from around the globe in order to provide more depth and understanding to current issues. One person’s effort to correct the distorted perceptions provided by commercial media, who says "This web site grew out of my personal frustration and anger at the failure of traditional commercial media to inform the American public, especially as it relates to US foreign policy". Some excellent links on this site including the following….
"Limbs And Meat" In The Street" – ‘A boy next to me, he went crazy, he was overwhelmed, he saw the massacre, the street was full of blood, the nails from the shells were as long as your hand’
US Plans Massive Arms Delivery to Israel – The Pentagon plans to make a large arms delivery to Israel, rising fears that the military campaign in Gaza will go on for a long time
What You Don’t Know About Gaza – NEARLY everything you’ve been led to believe about Gaza is wrong. Here are a few essential points that seem to be missing from the conversation………

Finally, a couple of points below which I’d like to share with you all from
http://www.allaahuakbar.net/policy.asp – General Guidelines for New Registration, which we should also heed, especially the 5th one during e-mail/sms and dawah with colleagues etc..
General Guidelines for New Registration and our forum ………..
Don’t let the internet consume your effort and time for no value. That happens when you navigate between the various sites and online groups for long hours. You waste your precious lifetime hours. That time that you should devote for people like your family, parents, children and relatives, or for your job where you earn the living for you and your dependants.
Visit the Islamic Sites frequently. Visit the useful sites that add to your useful information, and widens up your scales of knowledge. Stay away from the sites that promote corruption to Belief or Morals, those groups that seek the spread of Fitnah or controversy, even if this is over religious issues. Bad controversy is of no avail. Don’t interfere in conversations with the enemies of Islam unless you have the necessary knowledge and power that enables you to handle this task. And if not, ask a scholar to handle it instead.
The Holy Qu’ran in Surah 69 – Al-Haqqah, Ayah 36 "Nor hath he any food except the foul Pus from the washing of wounds" – transliteration: "They wounded many people by their cruelty and injustice in this life, and it is befitting that they should have no food other than "the foul pus from the washing of wounds" – this is just a glimpse of how the Zionists will be treated in Jahanam – Allah Hu Akbar !!
This video shows that Zionists didn’t read & understand the Torah and much more…Finally a voice of reason that if applied can solve all the crises and conflicts in the middle east
Is this Fox News most important interview ever?

Here is Pilger, another stalwart who stands tall amongst men of our time. A very good read …. right from the heart. A couple of highlights to share from this article, if I may?
"When Aretha Franklin sings "Think", her wonderful 1960s anthem to freedom, at Obama’s inauguration on 21 January, I trust someone with the brave heart of Muntadar al-Zaidi, the shoe-thrower, will shout: "Gaza!""
and here is the bit which clinched it for me ……
"For what happens in Gaza is the defining moment of our time, which either grants the impunity of war criminals the immunity of our silence, while we contort our own intellect and morality, or gives us the power to speak out."

Last Moments of A Dying Mother and Her Child….in Palestine
Inna lillahe wa inna ilayhe rajioon!!! Please see the attached images to witness the last moments of a dying mother.
Terrorists are not born, they are forced to become.
During the bomb blasts done by Israel last month(Dec 2008), around 600 innocents have been brutally killed. US, UK , UN are all watching this human genocide. With the blessings of European Countries, Israel is killing innocents mercilessly. Even now Media will not call US, UK , Israel and its allies as terrorists or at least "Sponsors of terrors".

Boycott Israel News: [Boycott – Economic – Europe] British telecom firm severs ties with Israeli counterparts due to Gaza attacks
British telecom firm severs ties with Israeli counterparts due to Gaza attacks. It’s wonderful to see a British company, FreedomCall, make an ethical decision to boycott Israel. The company deserves our support and encouragement. Zionists are already active in launching e-mail bombing campaigns to punish the company and pressure it to recanting. One campaign originating in the illegal israeli settlement of Ma’ale Adumim in East Jerusalem by an ‘IDF mother’ who has a morbid hobby of collecting trophy photos for her IDF son of Palestinians being killed is calling on zionists to write, email and telephone the company to complain their decision to boycott Israel.
We request that believers of justice should email FreedomCall (
email@example.com) to congratulate them for not ignoring the suffering of the Palestinians and for putting ethics before profits and boycotting Israel. Also consider supporting them by using their products – among other things they do international phone cards.

"What more proof does one need than the fact that for centuries, Jews have lived peacefully in Arabic countries, enjoying the respect and friendship of their neighbours? The tragedy of Zionism changed all of that. The painful truth is that in the eyes of the Zionist government, Jews are merely the cannon-fodder needed for the State of Israel to achieve its agenda."

If there is any doubt in anybody’s mind about the legitimacy of Hamas & of Israeli culpability in the current genocide,or even if there isn’t, please read a most remarkable article written by Avi Shlaim, a Jewish professor at Oxford University at

The military invasion of the Gaza Strip by Israeli Forces bears a direct relation to the control and ownership of strategic offshore gas reserves. This is a war of conquest. Discovered in 2000, there are extensive gas reserves off the Gaza coastline.
Jewish MP UK speaking in the Houses of Parliament Israel acting like Nazis in Gaza
Israel was born out of Jewish Terrorism" Tzipi Livnis Father was a Terrorist" Astonishing claims in the Houses of Parliament. SIR Gerald Kaufman, the veteran Labour MP, yesterday compared the actions of Israeli troops in Gaza to the Nazis who forced his family to flee Poland.
During a Commons debate on the fighting in Gaza, he urged the government to impose an arms embargo on Israel. Sir More.. Gerald, who was brought up as an orthodox Jew and Zionist, said: "My grandmother was ill in bed when the Nazis came to her home town a German soldier shot her dead in her bed. "My grandmother did not die to provide cover for Israeli soldiers murdering Palestinian grandmothers in Gaza. The present Israeli government ruthlessly and cynically exploits the continuing guilt from gentiles over the slaughter of Jews in the Holocaust as justifica…
From Farakh (Leeds) ….
"Gerald Kaufman made an excellent intervention in the commons on behalf of the cause yesterday, summary of the contribution attached, non from Muslim MP’s. Once again George Galloway and Claire Short both spoke with passion."
He is right: Where are the Muslim MPs? Think about it next time you vote. Good friends from Dewsbury (on this email list) should ask their Labour MP if we’ll ever see him make even half as good speech as GK, GG or CS or if he’ll ever stand up for justice & humanity. If he doesn’t or he won’t then he doesn’t deserve to be elected ever again. Instead elect a a good NON-MUSLIM MP with convictions – he/she will be better for us, imo.
Demands grow for Gaza war crimes investigation. Israel may face UN court ruling on legality of Gaza conflict
Israel is facing growing demands from senior UN officials and human rights groups for an international war crimes investigation in Gaza over allegations such as the "reckless and indiscriminate" shelling of residential areas and use of Palestinian families as human shields by soldiers.
UK’s Jewish MP calls it Nazi-like operation
A British Jewish lawmaker compared the Israeli offensive in Gaza on Thursday to the Nazis who forced his family to flee from Poland. Gerald Kaufman, a member of the Jewish Labour movement linked to Premier Gordon Brown’s ruling party, also called for an arms embargo on Israel…………
A war to crush the Palestinians. Eric Ruder argues that Israel’s rhetoric about Hamas "terrorism" is a pretext for an attempt to crush the Palestinian national movement.

E-mails from various people related to Starbucks
There was another e-mail chain related to starbucks which after further investigation was found to be a hoax. However, in further e-mail correspondence with Mazhar Iqbal (Leeds) – he said and I quote
"It is well known that Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is a huge supporter of Zionism. For this reason alone boycotting Starbucks is must at any time"
I then received another follow-up on this organisation from Rafay Faruki (London) who expressed the following view, of which the last paragraph is shocking:-
"It is not balooney to say that star buck (nasdaq:sbux) sucks. they do indeed support the zionist state. further more the ceo of sbucks, howard m. schultz, went beyond just support by saying that arabs should be evicted/killed off. this was news item a few years ago and info should still be available. his was widely quoted in the public media and till this arabs dr still drinking it.
Even worse, there was recent article in the press, about zionist retailers trading outside Kabbah, particularly starbucks!! so do not kill off the msg abt sbucks!!"
Ahmed Sadiq (Manchester) wrote "further to your earlier email, 1t is recommended that we boycott Starbucks (and others). See :
Finally, I received an e-mail from Ray Khan (Bradford) who made the following comment:
"I can confirm this, the owner of STARUCKS Mr Schultz is deffo a contributer to Israel as a Zionist State. This is common knowledge and can be found on Wikipedia
In 1998, Shultz was awarded the "The Israel 50th Anniversary Friend of Zion Tribute Award" from the
Look at the name he gave to his company ‘STARBUCKS’ where STAR = Star of David as on the Israel Flag and BUCKS = Slang for money He indeed does send a lot of BUCKS to ISRAEL.

An ingenious example of speech and politics
‘Before beginning my talk I want to tell you something about Moses. When he struck the rock and it brought forth water, he thought, ‘What a good opportunity to have a bath!’ He removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the water. When he got out and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished. An Israeli had stolen them.’
The Israeli representative jumped up furiously and shouted, ‘What are you talking about? The Israelis weren’t there then.’
The Palestinian representative smiled and said: ‘And now that we have made that clear, I will begin my speech.’

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله
Masha Allah – Excellent work by brother Farakh … he really is spending his time wisely and it’s positive actions such as this that will make a real impact, Insha Allah. I applaud his research and I am very thankful for his advise, I’m learning so much through this sad conflict… it’s very hard to sleep these days with so much going on and so many ideas flying around.. not to mention the death and destruction. I’ve not had a chance to view the video myself yet, but I will try. I’m so busy trying to collate everything I receive from multiple sources that I can only spare about 20% of my time to digest it. However, in the current crisis- I feel it’s important to share the validated info with as many people as possible as quickly as possible. There was that Hoax SMS related to Lidl/Aldi donating their earnings to the war which needs to be STOPPED immediately. I received correspondence from Lidl confirming this – see details in my weekly round-up events e-mail which I will send out on Friday evening Insha Allah. Insha Allah things will improve in Gaza very soon. wasalaam,

The question of why the barbaric Israeli military aggression, which had been ongoing since the 27th December 2008, was focussing itself on slaughtering Palestinian children in the Gaza Strip, has now been answered! Other than because of the nature of the Jews, of not having pure hearts, the targetting of children is not a co-incidence.
A few months ago, in line with the Ramadhan of 1429 Hijriah, Khaled Misyal, the leader of Hamas, appointed around 3500 Palestinian children who have become hafidz (memorizers of Al-Quran. Those children who have memorized 30 juzs of Al-Quran have become a source of fear for the Zionist Jews. "If in the age of as young as that, they have already mastered the Quran, imagine what would they become in 20 years time from now?" Thus the thought that lingered in the mind of the Jews.
It was no surprise that the Palestinian children have become memorizers of Al-Quran, the conditions in Gaza which had been blockaded by Israel made their interactions with Al-Quran constantly intense. They do not play ‘video-games’ or any other toys commonly played by their counterparts in other parts of the world. Thus, the condition have spurred them to become memorizers of the Qur’an (hafiz) at a very young age. Now, because of the fear of the invaders, around 500 of those young Qur’an memorizers have become shaheed.
SMS received from a number of people
Please text the word CEASEFIRE to 81819. The Guardian newspaper are running a poll for Gaza. Forward to as many ppl as possible and make ur voice heard,
I immediately got a text from Farakh rightly asking me "have you checked the Guardian number ? Otherwise u cud b asking people to text 2 a premium rate no. Where ceasefire cud hav whole new meaning? ". I found that the txt cost 60p which isn’t much but I can see where the money’s going. Their interest is only to make a quick buck. Imagine how many Muslims sent the text as an emotional reaction, not thinking that we are filling the coffers of the mainstream media who as we all know are totally against all Muslim interests in this or any other conflict. Be careful – CHECK before you act. There are people out there who have other motives. Check your information before blindly forwarding it.

What is going on is a small part of the big picture. The plan of the Zionists and the new world order is being rolled out. We people can do our best to stop it but unfortunately it will not be enough. They control the media which in turn controls the opinions of the majority of people who have no faith or do not question. They are paving the way for the anitchrist the dajaal. An ex cia official said if the world knew what I knew they would not be able to sleep. These people use the symbols of pharaoh the all seeing eye as on the 1 dollar note. They want to control the world.
