Mohammed took over the Nation of Islam. He denounced black supremacy and many of his father¶s apostate beliefs, and like Malcolm, embraced traditional Islam. Louis Farrakhan led a break away movement that sought to maintain the Muslim heresy such as: ³Bombs from spaceships circling the earth created the mountains.´ Like Wallace Fard, Louis Farrakhan also believes in spaceships. He claims Elijah Muhammad is living on one that is circling the planet and a few years after Elijah ³died,´ the spaceship picked up Farrakhan and the two men had a chat with each other. Afterward, Farrakhan says the spaceship let him off near Washington, D.C. FARRAKHAN AND RAHMAN THE ELDER On February 13, 1996 during a Tehran radio interview, Farrakhan predicted that his preaching might lead to imprisonment, perhaps along side Sheik Omar AbdelRahman: ³Maybe there's a cell next to Abdel-Rahman for me, and maybe he and I will be together reading the Qur`an and encouraging each other. America feels that a person like that who is listened to and loved, as Imam Abdel-Rahman was, needs to be confined when he preaches the message of true Islam, which inspires the militants among us as Muslims.´1 On May 19, 2000 Yousry and Sister Lynne discussed a possible visit from Farrakhan with Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman. Yousry: The visit, Sir.... May I tell him about the Louis Farrakhan thing and what's (UI)? Stewart: Oh, please. Yousry: You, Sir, agreed to have Louis Farrakhan visit you. ABDEL RAHMAN: Ah. Yousry: Fine. Now, Sir, we said so to Mr. AbdeenABDEL RAHMAN: Uhm. Yousry: -and to Mr. Ramsey. ABDEL RAHMAN: Uhm.

Yousry: [Gesticulating] Now, neither Mr. Abdeen nor Mr. Ramsey sent letters to Kaukab or to Louis Farrakhan saying that you, Sir, approved the visit. ABDEL RAHMAN: Uhm. Yousry: You, Sir, did approve the visit. ABDEL RAHMAN: Uhm. Yousry: [Gesticulating] Kaukab calls Ahmed, he tells him, ³We need the answer.´ Ahmed calls Abdeen and says, ³Send the answer.´ Abdeen says okay, but nothing is received. Ahmed and Nasser visited Lynne last night and told her they are worried that Ramsey and Abdeen do not want this to take place now. ABDEL RAHMAN: Why? Yousry: Why do you think Ramsey and Abdeen don't want it to go through now? Stewart: Uhm.... Yousry: What Ahmed and Nasser told you? Stewart: Farrakhan has a, a, a very, uh, heavy reputation, by that I mean eh, he is really despised by a lot of groups, as the Sheikh knows this, so ah, and eh.... Yousry: Mainstream. Stewart: Mainstream, definitely, and eh, but also, you know, he, he¶s a deathly enemy of, of, Jewish interests because of his remarks and eh, you know people are very timid these days (UI). Yousry: She says, Sir, that she believes, or that they believe, that because Louis Farrakhan has a reputation in the American society that he is an enemy of the Jews, a reputation that he is against the surrendering movements, a reputation that he resists oppressive governments, opposes American foreign policy, it is possible that they are worried about him interfering with this issue as it may cause harm, not help. ABDEL RAHMAN: But no, we need any opportunity, any opportunity to publicize my case. If he is capable of that, we have to do so. Besides, he is not accused of any crime, he is accused of good things....
Yousry: [Laughing] Yes. Well actually, we need any opportunity for our case to be eh, public (UI) and people speak about it and if he will help us and he¶ll speak about it, why not? Stewart: [Simultaneously] Absolutely. Yousry: Especially that he is not accused of crimes; he is accused so far of the things that you told me, they are great things... why can¶t we all be like him? Stewart: Well, the bad things are that eh, there is, um, he has taken a lot of money on behalf of his community.... Yousry: (UI) Stewart: ...in other words, black people from Libya and other places; and every...nothing has ever been successful, nothing eh, you know, they had a fish business for a long time, things like that. So he is definitely thought that he has put a lot of that money in his pockets and never done anything for the people with it...corrupt. Yousry: She says, Sir, that he is accused of taking money from Qaddafi and from Saudi Arabia to assist Muslims here, the money was not all spent on the Muslims. Some of it was spent on things it was not supposed to be spent on. However, this doesn¶t stop us from... all these things should not stop us from using him... ABDEL RAHMAN: Ah. Yousry: (UI). ABDEL RAHMAN: [Simultaneously] It is a great opportunity. Besides, he will struggle till heYousry: - till he comes. ABDEL RAHMAN: Yeah, till he comes. We will not worry about anything. Yousry: Exactly. Well actually, it¶s a great opportunity for us, and.... Stewart: [Simultaneously] Absolutely. Yousry: ...regardless of what he does, regardless of what people think of him, let him try to come, and let him try to bring out to the public that the American government is refusing him.
Stewart: I am a 100%... and especially since he certainly would try to eh...I understand he¶s very ill. That¶s what I had heardYousry: Yeah. Stewart: And that uh, this may be, you know, his way of moving towards mainstream Islam and away from the eh, the so- calledYousry: Black Islam. Stewart: Black Islam. Yousry: She says, Sir that she knows now and agrees a hundred percent, especially since Louis Farrakhan is sick, he had cancer, he was cured, praise be to God, but his health is bad. She knows that his health is bad, she is aware of the bad picture the people use here. It is in his interest to fight for you, to regain his good reputation among Muslims. ABDEL RAHMAN: Exactly so. Yousry: That is a goodABDEL RAHMAN: And tell her if she would please write it herself or authorize one of the paralegal people to write it with her permission. Yousry: Well, this is what they agreed upon yesterday, Sir. Lynne will tell Abdeen that she will write a letter if he doesn¶t. ABDEL RAHMAN: Yeah, yeah, tell her, tell her that this is in the Sheikh¶s interest, and that everybody thinks it is so. Yousry: Yes, Sir. Well actually, I would, uh, ask you a favor. If, um, you can please call Abdeen and tell him if he¶s not going to write that letter, and you have to read it, and if he¶s not going to write it, you write one and you send it to both.... Sir, to Kaukab and to Farrakhan, right? ABDEL RAHMAN: No, if he struggles and tries by any means, it¶s a big gain! Yousry: Uhm. And even if he doesn¶t succeed in coming, it¶s a big gain that the newspapers writeABDEL RAHMAN: Yeah. Yousry: -that Louis Farrakhan is not allowed to visit Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman.
ABDEL RAHMAN: Yeah, yeah, yeah. He can make the newspapers write. Yousry: He is capable... ABDEL RAHMAN: He has powerYousry: Right. ABDEL RAHMAN: -or authority. Yousry: He is capable of eh, bringing the news media into this placeStewart: Absolutely. Yousry: -and writing about why was he rejected, why can¶t he visit and they bring me up to the floorStewart: Absolutely. Yousry: -and that will start the discussion. Stewart: Absolutely. And he definitely wants the visit, as the Sheikh being a great scholar and a great religious leader. Yousry: And of course, Sir, it is very useful for us, because he doesn¶t want to visit ³the prisoner,´ he wants to visit the scholar of Al-Azhar, more well known for his knowledge and understanding of Islam than anyone. This is useful for us because it will help change the bad image the people have of you, Sir. ABDEL RAHMAN: Right. Yousry: That¶s a very good idea (UI). Stewart: A very, very good (UI). Yousry: He wrote it in his letter, Sir. He wrote that you are a scholar of AlAzhar, known for your great knowledge, et cetera, et cetera. And he hopes to meet you, Sir, to get hold of the truth from you, not from the American government. Here Lynne, you see? Stewart: Uhm hm. Yousry: This is the uh, the Nation of Islam letter. Stewart: Uhm hm.
Dr. Kaukab Siddique is the publisher and editor-in-chief of New Trend Magazine, an Islamist publication. He is involved in the liberation of Muslim political prisoners such as Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman and Imam Jamil Abdullah El-Amin (H. Rap Brown) as head of Jamaat-al Muslimeen, based in Baltimore, Maryland.2 On July 8, 2006 Kaukab Siddique attended a program in Arlington, Virginia organized by the Institute for Historical Review to listen to two top-notch revisionists.3 HAVE QU¶RAN WILL TRAVEL Despite his apostasy the both Sunnis and Shi¶ia embrace Minister Farrakhan, at least for the time being. In February 1996 Farrakhan visited Iran where he proclaimed: ³This is a theocracy, but it is also a democracy. Iran is now in the vanguard of an Islamic revolution that is sweeping the earth. You can quote me: God will destroy America by the hands of Muslims. God will not give Japan or Europe the honor of bringing down the United States; this is an honor God will bestow upon Muslims.´ Farrakhan proceeded to Iraq from Iran, meeting Saddam Hussein on February 15, 1996. Farrakhan stated: We visited the children's hospital...and I must say if I were made of stone, seeing what I saw today would bring tears from my eyes. Sanctions are a crime against humanity. Visiting the hospital that we visited today would be, or could be, compared to visiting one of the (Nazi) death camps. On February 8, 1996 during a five-hour visit to Khartoum, Farrakhan met with Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir and Hassan al-Turabi. Farrakhan stated: ³Muslims in America stand behind Sudanese Muslims, whom the Western enemy wants to eliminate,´ and assured them that ³More than 40 million American Muslims stand with Sudan against the unjust plots that it is subjected to.´ Minister Farrakhan also said that the ³Western campaign´ against the Sudan would ultimately fail. The Jewish press tried to discredit Farrakhan by reporting that Muslims from Sudan¶s north regularly enslave Sudanese Blacks. Defense of the Sudanese leaders could also be found in the pages of the Nation of Islam¶s newspaper, The Final Call, after two Baltimore Sun reporters traveled to Sudan and documented their success in buying slaves, in response to a Farrakhan challenge for proof of the existence of slavery there.4 The Sudanese enslave Blacks, but it is not because they are black, it is because they are Christian captured in a religious war. SLAVERY IN THE SUDAN Many people out of ignorance or out of bias attack the Islamic State of the Sudan for its stand on slavery, distorting and misrepresenting the true stand of Islam. The Qu¶ran says that it is a meritorious act to release a slave, however, Mohammed, like

Thomas Jefferson, was himself a slave owner. In general, slavery is not permitted in Islam, with one exception. Those captured in war become the property of the victor. Just like any property, they can be sold or transferred. In the Sudan, where a holy war was raged, the soldiers of Islam took black pagan women and children as slaves from African villages in the south and Nuba Mountains, fully in accordance with Shari¶a. Over 100,000 kuffar are serving as slaves today, thriving as domestics and concubines. Those taken in slave raids were roped by the neck or strapped to animals and then marched north. Along the way, many women and girls were violated, as Mohammed did not forbid sexual intercourse with slaves. Those who tried to escape had their Achilles tendons cut to hamper their ability to run. These pagan¶s souls were saved for they were given Arabic names and were forced to pray as Muslims. A 1989 military coup by General Omar al-Bashir spurred a dramatic increase in slave raids by the brave warriors of Islam. In April 2006 Usama bin Laden commented on the situation: ³The US sought to reach southern Sudan, recruited an army of southerners, supported them with weapons and funding and directed them to seek separation from Sudan. Then it exercised pressure against Khartoum government to sign an unjust agreement that permits south Sudan to gain independence from the north within six years. [Sudanese President Omar] al-Bashir and [US President George] Bush should have been aware that this agreement is not worth the ink by which it was written, and we do not accord the least concern to it. Nobody, whoever he was, has the right to accede an inch of the land of Islam and the south will remain an inseparable part of the land of Islam, God willing, even if the war continued for decades. The US was not satisfied by all the sedition and crimes, but went on to incite sedition, the largest of which was the west Sudan sedition by exploiting some disputes between the tribes and sparking a savage war between them that will spare nothing, prior to sending in Crusader troops to occupy the region and steal its oil wealth under the pretext of peacekeeping. This is a continuous Crusader-Zionist war against Muslims. In this respect I am inviting the mujahideen and their supporters in the Sudan and other countries around, including the Arabian Peninsula in particular, to prepare all that is needed for a long-term war against the Crusaders and thieves in western Sudan.´ FARRAKHAN AND QADDAFI Farrakhan was closest to Muammar Qaddafi: On January 23, 1996 Farrakhan arrived in Tripoli, Libya, where he met with Qaddafi. Farrakhan had previously traveled to Tripoli for other meetings with this communist, including one in 1986 that offered training seminars on weapons and explosives. In 1985, Qaddafi extended the Nation of Islam a $5 million interest-free loan to launch a line of household and beauty products. Later that year, the Libyan leader spoke by satellite to the Nation Of Islam¶s Savior¶s Day Convention in Chicago, and told Farrakhan supporters that he was prepared to provide weapons to a black army in the U.S. to destroy ³white America.´ In 1986 U.S. law enforcement indicted and convicted several members of the black El Rukns street
gang, that has a close relationship with the Nation Of Islam,5 for conspiring to purchase an inert light anti-tank weapon from an undercover FBI Agent that was to be used in an operation sponsored by Libya.6 Farrakhan and Qaddafi agreed to work together to mobilize ³oppressed blacks, Arabs, Muslims and Red Indians´ in the United States. Until now, Qaddafi said, ³Our confrontation with America was like a fight against a fortress from outside. Now we have a breach to enter into this fortress and confront it.´ Qaddafi also agreed to bankroll a $1 billion Muslim lobby in America, but never came up with the money. Qaddafi and Farrakhan were often on the same wavelength: Qaddafi revealed that Libyan children in the city of Benghazi suffered from the most abominable crime in the history of mankind, when foreign nurses injected them with the AIDS virus, while pretending to immunize them. In a speech given during the closing session of The Special African Summit for the Fight Against the AIDS Epidemic Qaddafi said that Libya would hand over all information regarding this vile crime to the World Health Organization and that there are those who think that the CIA or the Israeli Mossad were behind this crime. Qaddafi added that this act, which is a malicious sex crime, revealed the ugly face of those who introduced the AIDS virus to Africa in order to exhaust its strength and deplete its resources with the intention of gaining control over Africa. Six Bulgarians and a Palestinian were arrested in 1999 and charged with being Mossad agents assigned to commit this heinous crime. According to a Libyan intelligence report nurse Kristiyana Vulcheva confessed that a British friend who was working in Libya had given the vials of HIV tainted blood to her. She said she and her colleagues had used the vials to infect the children. The six health workers were sentenced to death by firing squad in May 2004. The Libyan Supreme Court on December 25, 2005, overturned the convictions and ordered a retrial in a lower court.7 A team of international scientists who reconstructed the history of the virus from samples from the Libyan children claimed that a subtype of H.I.V. began infecting patients at Al Fatah Children¶s Hospital in Benghazi before the foreign medical team arrived.8 A Libyan court on December 20, 2006 again sentenced five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor to be shot by a firing squad for deliberately infecting more than 400 children with H.I.V., more than 50 of whom have died. Prominent Farrakhan follower Steve Cokely has charged that the blame for the AIDS epidemic can be traced to doctors, especially Jewish ones, injecting black babies with the AIDS virus. Said Farrakhan, ³Cokely spoke the truth.´ Abuzed Omar Dorda added, ³Homosexuality is one of the main causes of this disease. In fact, God sent the Prophet [PBUH] with a clear message for preventing such practices and banning them!´ Farrakhan described AIDS as God¶s wrath against homosexuals and called homosexuality ³«that degenerative crap. The Holy Qu¶ran refers to homosexuality as

an abomination, meaning it is so utterly loathsome in the sight of God. I hope I ain¶t hurting no feelings!´ None-the-less, when AIDS was primarily a homosexual disease Farrakhan promoted the herbal extract drug Kemron, invented by a Blackman in Kenya, as a cure for AIDS, and sold it for $1,500 for a sixth months supply.9 Kemron did not cure AIDS as evidenced by the millions of people dying from this disease throughout the world. Instead of relying on other treatments, homosexuals who took Kemron fulfilled the will of Allah and died. As late as 1998 the Final Call was promoting Kemron. It is Farrakhan¶s genius in fulfilling the will of Allah and making money at the same time that has earned him the temporary respect of the Learned Elders of Islam, despite his connection to the communist Qaddafi. Farrakhan is a bridge between groups that share one thing in common ± hatred for the Jews. The LaRouchites wrote this about Qaddafi: ³The inner hierarchy of the Episcopagan church controls, with complicity of Venice, Libya¶s psychotic Colonel Qaddafi, and most of the New York Council on Foreign Relations«´10 LaRouche hates Qaddafi, Farrakhan loves him yet the two organizations are connected by James Bevel, LaRouche¶s 1992 vice-presidential running mate11 who helped coordinate the Black Muslims 1996 Million Man March on Washington and who writes for the Final Call.12 Dr. Abdul Alim Muhammad, a spokesman for the Nation of Islam, told LaRouche¶s International Caucus of Labor Committees, ³To Lyndon LaRouche and his wife, and to those members of his organization, especially those who are the teachers and writers who put out the New Federalist newspaper and the Executive Intelligence Review, I want to say on behalf of Minister Louis Farrakhan and the entire Nation of Islam, how much we admire you and respect you for the great work that you are doing...´13 Did this ³great work´ include the LaRouchites contract for the apartheid government of South Africa that involved collecting information on anti-apartheid organizations operating in the United States?14 The crypto-Nazis now see the value of the Nation of Islam, however, it was the neo-Nazi George Lincoln Rockwell who first saw it: ³Elijah Muhammad has taken a million or more of the lowest kind of people on earth - lazy, drunken, dirty, filthy-mouthed, nasty-minded black bums and criminals, the repulsive creatures called µniggers¶ and turned them into disciplined, self-respecting, sober, hard-working, courteous, cleantalking and clean people. Let the White men who tax me with being a µnigger lover¶ for respecting Elijah Muhammad show me the White leader today who has demonstrated any such masterful ability to lead! As Muhammad has grown in wisdom and stature, he has also become more moderate and statesman-like in his program and demands. He knows how the Jews are using and abusing his people and he does not fear to say so.´

QADDAFI There are some that say Qaddafi is an enemy of Islam and will always be. They claim he is a Pharaoh who has transgressed beyond bounds in the land and caused monstrous corruption and is actually a Jew (the Times of London, on April 18, 1972, carried a report that Qaddafi¶s mother was a Jew) who became one of the true successors to Kamal Ataturk, following his footsteps in more than one way, but particularly by the implementing of Ataturk¶s primary Jewish propaganda tool of ³using religion to combat religion´ by promoting ideas and concepts outwardly Islamic but in reality designed to destroy the foundations of the religion. The Islamic Fighting Group (FIG) was formed in 1995 among Libyans who had fought against Soviet forces in Afghanistan. FIG declared the Government of Qaddafi un-Islamic and pledged to overthrow it. FIG is aligned with al-Qaeda and is active in the international mujahideen network. When a crowd at a rally in Wadi Achatt greeted Qaddafi in February 1996 a FIG member threw a hand grenade at him from less than nine feet away. Libyan bodyguards moved Qaddafi to a platform some feet away from where he was to sit in front of the crowds, while other bodyguards seized the man. Qaddafi later said the man, who appeared in television images to be in his 30¶s and who had a moustache, was ³an agent of the British intelligence´ and had confessed he wanted to kill him. He gave no further details about the identity of the man, or his fate. David Shayler, (left) a former MI5 intelligence officer now living in Paris, went public in 1997 with information from intelligence agency files that confirmed Qaddafi¶s contention that MI6 was involved in a 1996 assassination attempt on Qaddafi without permission from Prime Minister John Major. In May 2000 the British Government sued Shayler and a London newspaper on the grounds that publishing government documents without permission violated copyright law, rather than prosecuting him under the Official Secrets Act. In November 2002 Shayler was convicted of breaching the Official Secrets Act and sentenced to six months in jail.15 In 2006 Shayler stated, ³The more I look at 9/11, the more I am convinced it was a staged event. I am convinced the U.S. government manipulated events - let it happen ± to create a trigger for the invasion of Afghanistan, the invasion of Iraq and of course what they're trying to do now with the imminent invasions of Iran and Syria.´ In the early 1970¶s Qaddafi routed Islamists from Libya. In 1986 he closed down 48 of our institutions, for being Islamist front groups. Qaddafi replaced the Shari¶a of Allah, unparalleled justice and wisdom, with his utterly foolish Green Book. In addition to this, he has created doubts in matters of religion, and has mocked the Prophet [PBUH], the honorable companions, with whom Allah was pleased, and the great leaders of Islam, may Allah have mercy on them, as is clear to anyone who has followed his speeches. Qaddafi attacked the sanctity of this religion and its followers by imposing his evil designs on the people by the policies of an iron fist and fire and subjecting the Muslims to extreme torture, punishment, degradation, and discrimination! Qaddafi has
substituted man-made law for the laws of the Lord of the universe. Qaddafi¶s antiIslamic laws included communist theories found in his accursed Green Book that is full of kufr, abominable heresy! Although alcohol and music are banned women are allowed to appear in public unveiled and are allowed to attend university. In 1994 Qaddafi sought to placate Islamist sentiments by broadening Shari¶a law provisions, and ordering the Islamic Call Society to fund our activities abroad, while at the same time expanding co-operation with neighboring Maghreb states (Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia) to fight Islamist groups. This was confusing for many Brothers. In May 1998 Qaddafi¶s motorcade was attacked near the city of Benghazi. Several bodyguards were killed, but Qaddafi was only lightly wounded. The Islamic Fighting Group was responsible. Qaddafi denied news of the attack, but, soon afterward, at least 100 people were arrested in and around Benghazi on suspicions of links to opposition groups. The fate of the detainees, who were tortured, remains unclear. A 1997 law allowed collective punishment, including the elimination of public services and food subsidies, for communities alleged to support insurgents. In 2000 he unleashed his secret police against our Brothers at the University of Benghazi, killing several and imprisoning many more. ALAMOUDI¶S LIBYAN BOOTY Abdurahman Alamoudi, (Alamoudi the Elder) whose offices were invaded by the FBI, once ran the American Muslim Armed Forces and Veteran Affairs Council. Abdurahman Alamoudi was an associate of Shukri Baker of the Holy Land Foundation16 and was a principal in the American Muslim Council as well as the American Muslim Foundation. In December 2000, the American Muslim Council Dallas chapter honored Ghassan Dahduli who was soon to be deported due to connection with al-Qaeda and Hamas. Under Alamoudi's leadership, the American Muslim Council operated as an umbrella organization for a group called "American Muslims for Jerusalem," which routinely exposed Zionist conspiracies and has featured calls at its conferences for the killing of Jews. The AMC also served as the headquarters for the United States office of the Islamic Salvation Front, a militant group with ties to the global terrorist network. ALAMOUDI AND THE DOUBLE WAMY The International Muslim Youth Forum of the World Association of Muslim Youth (WAMY), Riyadh, Saudi Arabia¶s treasurer in the U.S. was at one time, Abdullah A. Bin Laden, a nephew of Usama bin Laden. Abdullah A. bin Laden is a founding officer of the Taibah International Aid Association a non-profit organization established in 1991 and headquartered in Falls Church, Virginia. Abdurahman Alamoudi was the vice president

of the Taibah International Aid Association.17 Brother Ajaj was found with an envelope containing WAMY¶s return address and another WAMY Brother was questioned for hand delivering a recorded message from Usama bin Laden to local media praising the Bali nightclub event. On June 28, 2002 FBI Director Robert S. Mueller agreed to give a talk before the American Muslim Council. Not a smart move on his part. The American Muslim Council is the ocean in which the fish of the Brotherhood of Islamists swim! Abdurahman Alamoudi chuckled, ³We are grateful at least that Director Mueller is sticking to his commitment [to speak before the American Muslim Council], I am very pleased that at least there are some people who are in the administration who call people by their names - yes, the American Muslim Council, whether [critics like it] or not, we are a mainstream organization, and we are the senior mainstream [Muslim] political organization in Washington.´18 In the course of the Bassem Youssef lawsuit Mueller was asked if he was aware of Shiekh Rahman: MUELLER: I am. LAWYER: And are you aware of his relationship with bin Laden? MUELLER: I'm actually not. Let me answer if I could. Not with any specificity inasmuch as that prosecution and those events happened in New York way before I became director. LAWYER: Were you aware that the blind sheik was Mr. Bin Laden's spiritual leader? MUELLER: Again, I am not certain of the role played between the blind sheik and bin Laden.19 Abdurahman Alamoudi is a native of Eritrea, Ethiopia, where he was born in March 19, 1952. Abdurahman Alamoudi first arrived in the United States in 1979. He became a naturalized U.S. citizen on May 23, 1996. At an October 1993 conference sponsored by the American Muslim Council and attended by former Democratic U.S. Representative Robert G. Torricelli of New Jersey, who is known for his integrity, Abdurahman Alamoudi was the guest speaker. That same month the financial conduit support groups of Hamas met in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where, according to the FBI ³a speaker identified as Abdul Rahman (Last Name Unknown) urged that the group should µconcentrate our efforts on supporting Jihad«This can be done he said by concentrating our financial resources on those directly connected with Jihad, such as the injured, the martyrs, their families and the prisoners.´20 In 1998 Alamoudi criticized our East African Embassy operation and the FBI recorded his conversation: ³What is the result you achieve in destroying an embassy in an African country? I prefer to hit a Zionist target in America or Europe ... I prefer, honestly, like what happened in Argentina ... The Jewish Community Center. It is a worthy operation.´ In 2000,

Abdurahman Alamoudi told a group of Arab patriots: ³I have been labeled by the media in New York to be a supporter of Hamas. Anybody support this Hamas here? Hear that Bill Clinton, we are all supporters of Hamas! I wish to add here I am also a supporter of Hizb¶allah! Anybody supports Hizb¶allah here? When will you talk to the President to free Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman?¶´21 In the fall of 2000 Alamoudi met with Mohammed Belfas, an Elder of Islam from Hamburg who roomed with Ramzi bin al-Shibh, the paymaster of the September 11th Operation. Belfas was also acquainted with September 11th Shaheed Mohammed Atta.22 In January 2001 Abdurahman Alamoudi was part of an Islamist conference in Beirut alongside leaders of Hamas, Hizb¶allah, Islamic Jihad, and al-Qaeda that called for a boycott of all the goods America produces.23 Alamoudi praised the Holy Land Foundation, a conduit of funds for alQaeda activities. In May 2002 Alamoudi purchased a permanent quarters for the American Muslim Council, the American Muslim Foundation and the Hajj Foundation for $2.5 million dollars and the value of the real estate in March 2003 was described as $3.5 million. The building was acquired by three loans two of which, from Islamic Development Bank and the Saudi Economic Development Company were interest-free. The third loan was interest free for six months. At this time Alamoudi had scheduled an upcoming meeting with the Iranian President, Mohamed Khatami, in New York. Alamoudi further requested Abuzed O. Dorda, the Libyan Ambassador to the United Nations, assistance in arranging meetings with other leaders and ministers of foreign affairs from Pakistan, Libya, Sudan, and Iraq, or others who are deemed important in the realm of decisionmaking in the Arab and Islamic world. On August 16, 2003, Alamoudi and his family traveled to London, England where officers of Metropolitan Police Service (New Scotland Yard), Special Branch National Terrorist Financial Investigations Unit questioned them. Its report indicates that on August 11, 2003 Alamoudi attempted to travel from London, England, to Damascus, Syria, when United Kingdom Customs officers conducted a search of Alamoudi and his belongings at London Heathrow Airport and seized $340,000. The currency consisted of 34 bundles of sequentially numbered $100 bills. Alamoudi stated that he is the President of the American Muslim Foundation and that financing the organization¶s work is a constant struggle and in order to alleviate the problem in 1997 he approached Ambassador Abuzed O. Dorda. At a subsequent meeting between the two, the frozen Libyan assets in the United States were discussed and Ambassador Dorda suggested he (Abdurahman Alamoudi) could receive an unspecified share of any assets he may succeed in releasing. Abdurahman Alamoudi then had a series of meetings with Clinton and Bush the Elder and Younger White House officials who informed him Libyan assets were frozen as a result of the downing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.

Abdurahman Alamoudi said that at a further meeting with Ambassador Dorda it was suggested to Alamoudi that, in order to mitigate the funding problem, he contact the Tripoli-based Libyan Islamic Call Society, which had funded Brother Marzook. In Libya the Islamic Call Society represents Motamar Al-Alam Al-Islamia / World Muslim Congress.24 The Islamic Call was created at the behest of Colonel Qaddafi; its purpose was to spread Islam, by force through Jihad. Actually Alamoudi was the United States representative of the World Islamic Call Council and had traveled to Tripoli on at least ten occasions, usually to negotiate with the President of the Islamic Call Society. The World Islamic Call Council is charged with the duty of implementing the programs adopted at the World Islamic Call Society Conference. A World Islamic Call Society Conference Confirmation of Participation Form containing Alamoudi¶s name, address etc. was contained among documents stolen from the offices of Alamoudi¶s Success Foundation in March 2002 by the FBI. It was arranged for Alamoudi to receive a sizeable cash donation during his stay at the London Metropole Hotel and on August 13, 2003, he received a telephone call to his room from someone who spoke Arabic with a Libyan accent, informing him he had ³something´ for him. The individual arrived at Alamoudi¶s room and handed him a small Samsonite style briefcase. Alamoudi said there was no conversation and the visitor abruptly left Alamoudi's room. Upon opening the case he discovered $340,000 of United States currency. Alamoudi told officers that he then transferred the money to his own luggage and left the other case in the hotel room. Alamoudi's justification for the cash transaction is that the American authorities have stringent measures to reduce the amounts of cash entering and leaving the United States. He believed it was illegal to be in possession of any amount exceeding $10,000. He stated it was solely for this reason that he involved himself in this surreptitious transaction. Alamoudi was adamant that this was the only such transaction in which he has been involved. Alamoudi told officers that he intended eventually to deposit the money in banks located in Saudi Arabia, from where he would feed it back in smaller sums into accounts in the United States. On August 17, 2003, Alamoudi agreed to meet again with Special Branch Officers. During this second interview, the report states that he conceded he had been involved in other similar cash transactions involving amounts in the range of $10,000 to $20,000. Alamoudi was arrested on September 29, 2003 and charged with violating the laws against dealing with Libya.25 He was indicted on October 23, 2003 and charged with money laundering, misuse of a passport, failure to report a foreign bank account and many other charges.26 Stanley L. Cohen who represented Alamoudi the Elder called the Government¶s case ³allegations of white collar crime dressed up in terrorism drag.´27 It has been alleged Alamoudi planned to use $340,000 in cash to finance the assassination of Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah, according to several people who have been briefed by U.S. and Saudi officials.28 Mohamed Ismael, a Libyan intelligence

officer now in Saudi custody stated that four Saudi Brothers were to fire upon Abdullah's motorcade with shoulder-fired missiles from a room at the Hilton Hotel in Mecca as Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah traveled to the Grand Mosque.29 They distributed more than $2 million in cash in this recruitment drive in London to find Brothers willing to take on this task.30 Prince Abdullah had insulted Qaddafi when he asked, ³You, who brought you to power? Don¶t talk about matters that you fail to prove. Your lies precede you, while the grave is ahead of you.´ Brothers who ran front groups in London such as the Committee for the Defense of Legitimate Rights were recruited for this activity.31 Committee for the Defense of Legitimate Rights leader Muhammad al-Massari said he was "acquainted" with Abdurahman Alamoudi.32 Abdurahman Alamoudi, 52, pleaded guilty to engaging in prohibited transactions with a foreign country, unlawful procurement of citizenship and impeding administration of the Internal Revenue Service. Stanley L. Cohen said the government conceded that Alamoudi's role was "minimal" and he was unaware of much of the conspiracy. U.S. District Judge Claude M. Hilton sentenced Abdurahman Alamoudi to the maximum 23 years in prison. Andrew McCarthy claimed that Alamoudi agreed to become a traitor: ³Whether Alamoudi will actually serve the 23 years is questionable. His plea agreement contemplates co-operation with the government. If he provides truthful information or testimony that helps the government further investigations -- particularly terrorism cases -- he could become eligible for a significant reduction. Time will tell.´ Alamoudi is at U.S. Penitentiary McCreary in McCreary, Kentucky.33 In order to cloak his support of Islamism Qaddafi reportedly issued an arrest warrant for bin Laden and the State Department placed FIG on its terrorist exclusion list in December 2001; its members are to be denied U.S. visas. In December 2003 Qaddafi announced that Libya would cease work on its programs to develop nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, including an effort to refine uranium for use in nuclear devices and it has signed the nuclear test ban treaty.34 The Elder¶s believe Qaddafi is insane, and has a personality split between Islamism and Communism, and as such can be used by the West.

The Ummah are the chosen people, not the Jews, as we have been chosen to bring the word of God to all Mankind. Peace be upon our Prophet, Muhammad BinAbdallah, who said: ³I have been sent with the sword between my hands to ensure that no one but Allah is worshipped, Allah who put my livelihood under the shadow of my spear and who inflicts humiliation and scorn on those who disobey my orders.´ In Islamic battle order, the Jews must be dealt with first as the words of Almighty Allah indicate that camel urine flows through their veins, not blood, ³Thou shalt certainly find the Jews to be the most vehement of men in enmity against the believers. And thou shalt assuredly find those who say, µWe are Christians¶, to be the nearest of them in love to the believers. That is because amongst them are savants and monks and because they are not proud.´35 This Catholics have not lived up to the faith placed in them by the Prophet [MPBUH]. In September 2006 Pope Ratzinger quoted the Byzantine Crusader emperor Manuel II Paleologus ³Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.´ The emperor, after having expressed himself so forcefully, went on to explain in detail the reasons why spreading the faith through violence is something unreasonable. Violence is incompatible with the nature of God and the nature of the soul.´36 The Qu¶ran also says: ³And fight the pagans all together as they fight you all together,´ and ³fight them until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah´ so after we eliminate the Jews, it will become the Christians turn to give up their faith, beginning with the Coptics. ISLAMIST CULTURE WAR We believe that in all lands, ruling a government should be the step that follows preparing society for accepting the Islamic laws. Otherwise, ruling a totally corrupt society through a Islamist government makes overthrow a great risk, for every man aims at power, everyone would like to become a dictator if only he could, and rare indeed are the men who would not be willing to sacrifice the welfare of all for the sake of securing their own welfare. Preparing society for this is achieved through plans for: Spreading the Islamic culture, the possible media means, mosques, and dawa work in public organizations such as syndicates, parliaments, student unions. Parallel to that, distinct Muslims should be trained to administer political, economic, social, and student organizations efficiently (and Islamically), as another preparatory step. PROTOCOL 10. ± DEMOCRACY: A MEANS TO AN END FOR ISLAM The masses of people living under Islam must be made to understand that democracy is not an ideal, but a temporary means to a theocracy. One must know how to apply this idea whenever it appears necessary with this bait of an idea to attract the masses of the people to one¶s party for the purpose of crushing another who is in authority. This task is rendered easier if the opponent has himself been infected with the idea of freedom, so-called democracy, and, for the sake of an idea, is willing to yield

some of his power. It is precisely here that the triumph of our theory appears; the slackened reins of government are immediately, by the law of life, caught up and gathered together by a new hand, because the blind might of the nation cannot, for one single day, exist without guidance, and the new authority merely fits into the place of the old, already weakened by democracy. Gamal Sultan the founder of Egyptian Al-Islah Party, or Egyptian Reform Party whose goals are not dissimilar from the Yemeni Al-Islah Party, asked for Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman¶s blessing in taking over Egypt by using the democratic process and then banning democracy once elected, ³In the name of God, the compassionate and merciful. His eminence, Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, may God keep him. Peace be upon you and God's mercy and blessings and many happy returns. We ask God that this same time next year we are blessed by having you free, praying to God guide to His straight way. Eminent Sheikh, it is not hidden from you what the Muslims and Islamic Call have faced in Egypt throughout the past years, from troubles and enormous anxieties, huge losses in human life and in the Islamic ranks; also in the Islamic reform itself in the arenas of creed, morals or rituals. When we saw that other Brothers in the Al-Gama¶a al-Islamiyya have started to re-examine the experiment of armed confrontation and to re-evaluate the good and the bad consequences that have resulted from it, it appears, without a doubt, that the latter outweighed the former. Hence, some of the Islamists from the followers of The Call and the Islamic Jihadist movement in Egypt called for the necessity of establishing a new Islamic political party. It would be a legal and practical umbrella, appropriate to revitalize the Islamic Call and to work for its protection through peaceful Jihad and political struggle. Being cautious that the policies of the party preserve the fundamentals of Islamic Call, the authority of Islamic law and the ruling of the Qu¶ran and the prophetic tradition. Also, cautious not to slip back in its [the party's] practical policies and not to practice politics in the trivial way it is currently practiced. We found it necessary to send you this urgent letter, hoping to receive your response to it as soon as possible, including your opinion regarding this idea and these efforts, so that our work is based on clear vision and enlightenment. May God keep you (pl.) and may He benefit from you. And peace be upon you and God's mercy and blessings. Founders of the Islamic Social [Reform] Party Kamal Al-Sa'id Habib, Jamal Sultan, January 15, 1999.37 The Egyptian Al-Islah Party was affiliated with Al-Tawaquf Wal-Tabayun. Gamal Sultan¶s partner in the Reform Party, Salah Hashim, was one of the founders of alGama'a al-Islamiyya. The other major Islamist Party, the Al- Shari'ah Party was also composed of former jihadi, as its founder is Mamdouh Ismaiil, a former member of Egyptian al-Jihad. These political parties are indicative of the attempt to abandon the theoretical frame and practice of violence, and temporarily forgo Jihad.38 Basically, the Brothers were suggesting that Gama¶a al-Islamiyya become a political party or align itself with the Islamic political parties Al-Islah and Al-Shari'ah. Among the names that were included in the list of the Shari'ah Party was Abdel Khaleq and Majdi Ibrahim AlNajar, who are the brothers of Ahmad Al-Najar, the prime suspect in the case of the
. USA v Sattar Government Exhibit 2203AT . http://mecas.cir.tohoku.ac.jp/symposium/rachwan.html
returnees of Albania, and who is awaiting execution. The two were previously accused in the case of President Sadat's assassination. The list also included the attorney, Hasan Ali Mahmoud, who was accused in 1993 in the case of the famous writer Faraj Fouda's assassination. It also included Ismail Mohammed Ali, who was accused in the Sadat case, which caused him to be discharged from the army. At that time, he was supposed to be one of Abud Al-Zumar's (Zumar¶s) aides. Zumar was the leader of the Vanguards of Conquest, a faction of Egyptian Islamic Jihad that emerged in 1992.39 Ismail Mohammed Ali was also accused in the 1987 in the case of reviving the Egyptian Al-Jihad organization, and in the assassination attempt of the former Interior Minister Major General Hasan Abu Basha. Concerning the Reform Party, its list contained 70 people. Among them many Brothers who were previously accused in religious violence related cases. A letter smuggled out of Rochester prison in Minnesota stated unequivocally that it was the wrong tactic to transform Egypt into an Islamic state democratically. Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman emphatically rejected the idea of the Islamic parties and cited many Islamic legal references. The Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper received a copy of the letter via the Islamic Media Observation Center, London, in which Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman wholly rejected the concept of Islamic parties based on Islamic legal principles. His letter prohibits the militants from participating in the political parliamentary arena, the democratic process, and the people's assemblies. Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman alleged in his reasoning that the militants' participation in the political life will bolster the concept of parliamentary counsels and support the regime. Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman said ³the sacrifice for the sake of God does not bear any losses. Their dead ones are in heaven.´ It is worth mentioning that the list of founders of the Shari'ah Party which was presented last month by their representative attorney, Mamdouh Ismail (he was accused in the case of the late President Anwar Sadat's assassination. He is considered one of the prominent members of the legal defense team defending Islamists) to the Parties Affairs Committee of the Egyptian Consultative council. It included some names of militants who are considered "extremists who were accused in the assassination of the late president Anwar Sadat and who were involved in other religious violence cases." Jamal Sultan said that Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman's letter was fabricated, and added that this was propaganda to "derail the new political project which was presented by the Reform Party.´ He also said, whoever ponders the letter will find out that it answered a question other than the one that was asked by the founders. The alleged letter did not address the political parties. However, it only addressed the Parliaments. The poor language and weak evidence had clearly proved that the letter had been falsely attributed to Sheikh Omar, who is an Azhar University graduate. Jamal Sultan expressed his deep regrets regarding what he described as an attempt of some Islamists to adopt and refuse the ills of covert operations in the political action arena. The founders of the Reform Party are historic figures and not "affiliates" to the Islamic movement as they were depicted in the letter.40

When Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman was asked by Kamal Habil and Gamal Sultan about forming a Muslim party and compete in the election this raised the Sheikh¶s blood pressure and made him Sheikh angry. He kept asking God to give him patience and replied "no" citing several reasons. ± I don't agree for the following reasons: One, to sacrifice one's life is not catastrophes because all those who were killed are already in heaven. Two, the cessation of violence which is decided by the leadership for the group to apply is a matter of tactic and not a matter of principle. Three, the people's assembly was founded on non-Islamic basis, so how could we participate in it? Four, the prophet of God did not transform the Dirar mosque41 to a serviceable one, but on the contrary, he gave orders to burn it. Five, we were instructed by the Qu¶ran to take Ibrahim as an example: "I don't belong to you who don't worship God." Six, it is not permissible to join the oppressors or mingle with them. Seven, entering the entity of this ruling is in itself a recognition and reaffirmation of its legality. Eight, for the Muslims to enter the people's assembly, it is reaffirmation to its ruling in addition that it does not rule by the Shari'ah. Have we become, unintelligible, in both directions?" The Sheikh summed up his views on political parties, ³the establishment of these parties is but a cosmetic cover-up for the face of the kafir Egyptian government; I refused it completely. In October 2003 Mubarak released many Gama¶a al-Islamiyya leaders based on their renunciations of violence. He also released a thousand Brothers. On October 7, 2004 commandoes attacked tourist targets in Taba and Nuweiba on the Sinai peninsula in three separate but coordinated actions. Thirty-four people were killed and over 140 were injured. The targets were Israelis vacationing there during the holiday of Succoth. Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri had called for action against Jews, ³Defending Palestine is not a national zeal or ethnic bigotry, nor is it a political struggle, but it is a religious cause in the first place. The liberation of Palestine is an individual duty for every Muslim. That is why Muslims cannot abandon Palestine, even if the entire world abandoned it. We, in Palestine, do not confront the Jews only, but also the international alliance that is hostile to Islam. Crusader United States, Zionism, the Crusader West, and the agent rulers head this alliance. Hence, confining the battle against the Jews to Palestine, and leaving the United States without attacking it, will not curb the excesses of the Americans and the crusaders against us.´42 Some Egyptian commentators blamed the Taba Event on Israeli intelligence, as they shared our hatred of Israel. On April 30, 2005 Ihab Yousri Yassin, along with his sister and fiancé detonated anti-personal explosive devices in front of the Egyptian Museum. In 1997 a bomb planted by Gama¶a al-Islamiyya exploded outside the

Their intentions were actually to dismantle Muslim unity but they wanted to appear as if they were pious. Of course, they and their intentions were transparent to God. So the Dirar Mosque was destroyed and burnt to the ground. 42 . http://www.jinsa.org/articles/articles.html/function/view/categoryid/1701/documentid/2713/history/3,2360,655,1701,2713
Egyptian museum in Cairo, killing nine German tourists.43 The tradition lives on in a new generation of jihadi calling themselves Mujahedeen of Egypt or the Abdullah Azzam Brigade, the name does not matter as we all interpret the holy Qu¶ran in the same fashion that Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman has taught us to. We can never be stopped in the march to victory, because the people of Egypt are with us for the Egyptian is suckled on the milk of the hatred of Jews and when the Pew polling organization came to Egypt in 2006 it found that 97% of those polled hated Jews.44 On Sunday August 6, 2006 the New York Times ran this story, ³Militants in Egypt Terror Group Are Said to Be Joining Al Qaeda - Ayman al-Zawahiri, announced Saturday that it was being joined by a string of major players from Al Gama¶a alIslamiyya, the Egyptian militant group. In a message run by Al Jazeera television, Mr. Al-Zawahiri, who was born in Egypt, welcomed ³a number´ of the group's leaders ³under the Al Qaeda banner.´ They have decided, he said, to ³merge with Al Qaeda to unite the forces of the nation into one, to face its enemies which are launching the most ferocious campaign ever seen against Islam. Abu Jihad Al-Masri, Mohamed Khalil Hukayma who assures the Muslim nation in this message the steadfastness of the large crowd and the majority of Al-Gama¶a al-Islamiyya are on the true path of Jihad against the enemies of Islam, crusaders, Jews and their treacherous agents. Unknown pressures influenced a faction of Al-Gama¶a Al-Islamiyya. They went along with the Egyptian and American governments in their claims deviating from the true path of Al-Gama¶a Al-Islamiyya¶s beliefs that are based on God¶s spoken word & the prophet¶s traditions.´ THE TURKISH DEMOCRACY The Islamist Justice and Development Party won a clear majority in Turkey¶s parliament and now has formed Turkey¶s new government. Recep Tayyip Erdogan founded the Justice and Development Party. Erdogan has stated, ³Thank God, I am for Shari'ah. For us, democracy is a means to an end. One cannot be a secularist and a Muslim at the same time.´ On his election as Mayor of Istanbul in 1994, he banned alcohol from city restaurants, proclaimed himself the city¶s Imam and opened public meetings with prayers and poems. The lines from one poem ³The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers...´ resulted in a prison term for Erdogan and a prohibition against running for public office. In 1997, having won 20% of the vote, Necmettin Erbakan, who had met with Louis Farrakhan, formed a coalition government based on Islam. His first state trips included visits to Iran and Libya. He spoke of leading a worldwide alliance of Islamic countries. Within one year he was overthrown by the military and his party was banned. Erdogan and the Justice and Development Party are now in power as a constitutional amendment was passed allowing Erdogan to hold office. Now Erdogan has stated, ³Before anything else, I¶m a Muslim. As a Muslim, I try to comply with the requirements of my religion. I have a responsibility to God, who created me, and I try to fulfill that
. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/4710431.stm . New York Times June 23, 2006 A3
responsibility. But I try now very much to keep this away from my political life, to keep it private.´ Erdogan has not lived up to his early promise and if he stays on the secularist road he may someday be labeled a traitor to Islamism. Women who dare to wear headscarves are still forbidden to attend universities or work in government. Erdogan¶s two daughters go to Indiana University, where they are free to do this. Erdogan¶s wife cannot attend state functions because of her headscarf. In July 2003 the Turkish Parliament passed legislation curtailing the power of the secularist military but it meant nothing. In May 2006 Alparslan Arslan, a lawyer and a solider of Allah, stormed into a courthouse meeting room in Ankara and shot five judges, apparently in anger at a ruling enforcing a strict ban on the wearing of Islamic head scarves. One day Islam will soon rule this pivotal land, without the interference of the military, as long as Turkey is kept out of the European Community.45 When the Day of Judgment comes the secularist generals will be forced at gunpoint to wear headscarves! DEMOCRACY IN KUWAIT Even America¶s closest allies will fall, victims of Jeffersonian democracy: The Kuwaiti National Assembly, shut down three times since 1961, has become filled with Islamists who have succeeded in preventing women from voting, have separated male and female students, banned public dancing, and put a hold on government plans to expand the role of America in Kuwait¶s oil production. Soon Islamists will push for a tax on the rich to redistribute wealth to the poor and for a constitutional amendment making Islamic law, the law of the land. The International Islamist Network has been in touch with these legislators. The FBI found a letter Brother Sami Al-Arian wrote to an Islamist elected to the Kuwaiti Parliament seeking funds for the families of Palestinian Islamic Jihad martyrs, since the Palestinian Islamic Jihad carries out selective operations that all the Arab armies together couldn't do. Al-Arian told the Kuwaiti that ³[r]elations with the brothers who are part of Hamas is very good, and progressing well. There are serious attempts at establishing permanent coordination and unity of action.´ Enclosing his address and phone number, Sami Al-Arian called upon the Kuwaiti ³to strongly support the Jihad effort in Palestine in order for such operations to continue.´ In July 2003 the Sunni and Shi¶ite Islamists took more than a third of the seats in the 50-seat Kuwaiti Parliament.46 DEMOCRACY IN ALGERIA

The Armed Islamic Group of Algeria began its blessed activities in early 1992 after Algiers voided the victory of the Islamic Salvation Front, the largest Islamic party, in the first round of legislative elections in December 1991. In December 1994 a commando action against an Air France flight from Algiers was carried out by four members of the ³Phalange of the Signers in Blood,´ a subsidiary of the Armed Islamic Group. These mujahedeen seized control of the plane and demanded that it fly to Marseilles, where it was to be refueled for a trip to Paris. They also demanded that the Airbus A300, a plane of comparable size to the Boeing 767s that were used to attack the World Trade Center, be loaded with 27 tons of fuel, which was three times what was necessary for the short trip. These soldiers of Islam intended to ram the aircraft into the Eiffel Tower. Twenty sticks of dynamite were found by French troops who stormed the plane and killed the martyrs.47 During his interrogation Abdul Hakim Murad stated, ³Yousef has not been to Egypt, Algeria and France. Murad said that Yousef was just planning to go to these countries in order to conduct explosives training to their Muslim Brothers there because the people who have knowledge of this training were all dead. Furthermore, Murad mentioned that he came to know these plans during the hijacking of the French Airlines in December 1994 when Yousef told it to him at the Josefa Apartment.´ BRINGING DEMOCRACY AND CIVIL SECTARIAN WAR TO IRAQ: THE WOLFOWITZ PAC
Amongst [the Jews] We have placed enmity and hatred till the Day of Judgment. Every time they kindle the fire of war, Allah doth extinguish it; but they (ever) strive to do mischief on earth. And Allah loveth not those who do mischief. Al-Maidah 564
The Wolfowitz PAC followed the wishes of the Likud, who wanted revenge for the Scud missiles that hit Israel during the Gulf War, missiles that had the potential to turn the Zionist entity into one big gas chamber, missiles that could have killed Wolfowitz¶s sister who lives in Israel, or could have killed Wolfowitz himself, who was visiting Israel during these attacks.48 There had been no reprisal against Iraq for this act of war and this made Israel seem weak and vulnerable. In 1992, while he was working under thenDefense Secretary Dick Cheney, Wolfowitz, upset by President Bush the Elder¶s decision to leave Saddam Hussein's regime in place after the 1991 Gulf War Wolfowitz argued in a draft version of a Defense Policy Guidance paper that the U.S. should use pre-emptive force to prevent countries from developing weapons of mass destruction, and act alone if necessary. Although the draft guidance was quashed soon after it was leaked to the New York Times, these doctrines later found their way into Bush the Younger¶s national security strategy.49 Bush confidant, former United States Treasury Secretary John O¶Neill said Bush planned to invade Iraq prior to the September 11th Raids. Wolfowitz planned his evil machinations years in advance.

As more and more neo-cons infiltrated key positions in the Department of Defense certain key Jews who had entered into a conspiracy of mutual assent to follow the Likud Party line manipulated the thinking of President Bush the Younger, who is smart enough to know he is stupid. Jews had done well managing the countries Treasury and Federal Reserve, why not American foreign policy? Bush the Younger reasoned. Deputy Director of Defense Paul Wolfowitz led this ³attack Iraq wolfowitz pack´ and Vice President Dick Cheney aided and abetted them in leading America into a pointless war. This grouping represented the interests of Israel not America, but ultimately these policies will result in the destruction of both the Jewish and Christian entities. When the CIA failed to find a link between Saddam¶s Iraq and Al-Qaeda Wolfowitz had the Jew Douglas J. Feith, Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, form a special unit in the Pentagon to link the two. Feith¶s unit was known as the Office of Special Plans; actually it was the Office of War Propaganda. Before he became part of the Wolfowitz Pack Feith ³represented a leading Israeli armaments manufacturer (the IDF ± the Israeli Defense Forces) in establishing joint ventures with leading U.S. aerospace manufacturers for manufacture and sale of missile systems, to the U.S. Department of Defense and worldwide.´50 A report by the Pentagon's acting inspector general, Thomas F. Gimble, stated Feith, ''developed, produced and then disseminated alternative intelligence assessments on the Iraq and Al Qaeda relationship, which included some conclusions that were inconsistent with the consensus of the Intelligence Community, to senior decision-makers.'' The Jew Eric S. Edelman, the under secretary of defense, attacked the Gimble Report. Feith was pleased that the inspector general had cleared him of violating laws or Defense Department policies. Richard Pearle, Michael Maloof, a Lebanese-American, and the Jew David Wurmser aided Feith: RICHARD PERLE Richard Perle, a former aide to the Zionist Senator from Washington ³Scoop´ Jackson was an assistant secretary of defense in the Reagan administration, and a former member of Bush the Younger¶s Defense Policy Board who had strong ties to Likud. Dr. Zogby discovered Pearle served as a consultant to Douglas Feith when Feith ran a firm that was involved with the anti-Islamist government of Turkey.51 Seymour Hersh quoted Prince Bandar as saying this about a business meeting between Richard Perle and Saudi industrialist Harb Saleh Zuhair, ³There were elements of the appearance of blackmail - 'If we get in business, he'll back off on Saudi Arabia' - as I have been informed by participants in the meeting.´ Perle who called Hersh, ³the closest thing American journalism has to a terrorist´ was absolved of any guilt by a Pentagon whitewash.52 Left to their own devices, Jews like Pearl and Hersh will ultimately destroy one another.53 Richard Perle resigned from the Defense Policy Board in February

MICHAEL MALOOF Before the occupation of Iraq F. Michael Maloof had worked for Richard Perle at the Pentagon during the reign of Ronald Reagan. F. Michael Maloof was certified in Defense Intelligence Agency Attaché Training: His resume read, ³Intermediate and advanced firearms training; tactical shotgun; executive protection; intermediate and advanced evasive and defensive driver training, including basic and advanced route analysis, surveillance detection and attack recognition; and intermediate and advanced off-road driving. Certified in High Risk Personnel (HRP) Training, U.S. Marine Corps, Quantico, Virginia. Included training in defensive handgun, shotgun and various assault rifles. Certified in Individual Terrorism Awareness, U.S. Army Special Forces, Ft. Bragg, North Carolina. Completed the Combat Tracking training. Was an assistant to tracker instructor in training law enforcement, U.S. Marine Scout/Snipers, U.S. Marine Security. In addition, provided similar training to border guards in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Georgia Republic under DOD/U.S. Customs Non-Proliferation Program. Certified NRA Pistol Instructor.´ After 9/11 F. Michael Maloof, who had previously worked on WMD technological non-proliferation issues as Director, since May 1985, of Technology Security Operations in the Defense Technology Security Administration, was given the task of linking alQaeda with Saddam Hussein¶s regime: ³October 2001 to August 2004: On special detail to the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy. Work product also prepared for use by Deputy Secretary of Defense. Work included analysis of worldwide terrorist networks and making recommendations to render them ineffective. Analysis includes determining worldwide links of those networks, including their front companies, cutouts and terrorist cells, relationships to state sponsors of terrorism as well as their activities in launching attacks. Also detect, determine acquisitions of equipment and technologies for the development and deployment of weapons of mass destruction and conventional weapons. Analysis also looks to policy implications as they relate to cooperation with other countries¶ security and enforcement entities in waging the effort against terrorism.´56 F. Michael Maloof introduced Richard Perle to Imad Hage (Imad El-Haje), a Maronite Christian and Lebanese-American businessman who informally represented the Iraqis. In February 2003 Imad Hage relayed a message that Saddam was willing to give up oil, allow FBI inspections anywhere in Iraq, help the Arab world make peace with Israel and even turn over Abdul Rahman Yasin. This amounted to an unconditional surrender. Richard Perle met with Hage in London but Richard Perle¶s mind was set on war, on Israel¶s interests, not on America¶s interests. In May 2003 the Pentagon placed

Maloof, who had lost his security clearances in December 2001 (Maloof had unauthorized contact with a foreign national, a woman he had met while traveling in the Republic of Georgia and eventually married) on paid administrative leave ostensibly because of his association with Imad Hage who was under federal investigation for possible involvement in a gun-running scheme to Liberia and who had approached Maloof on behalf of Syria to establish a communications channel between Syria and the America.57 Maloof¶s lawyer, Sam Abady (who signed a petition for Lynne Stewart) said that he was a target because of his political ties to the Wolfowitz Pack58 and his refusal to admit that there were no significant connections between al-Qaeda and Saddam. DAVID WURMSER The Jew David Wurmser is married to an Israelian ³terrorism´ expert at the Hudson Institute, Meyrav Wurmser. Her Ph.D. thesis was on the ideas that informed the Likud Party, from Ze¶ev (Vladimir) Jabotinsky through Menachem Begin to Yitzhak Shamir. Dr. Wurmser taught political science at the United States Naval Academy. She writes articles for such neo-con pro-Israel publications as the Weekly Standard and has a low opinion of Arabs, ³the Arab world in fact did look to the West for new ideas, especially over the last one hundred years. Unfortunately, what it borrowed were the wrong ideas: communism, fascism, and Nazism, all forms of tyranny and totalitarianism, which were born in the West and were adopted by the region¶s despots. Moreover, the Middle Eastern adaptations of these ideas have proven even more resilient than their European inspirations.´59 David Wurmser is a special advisor to Vice President Cheney and a former Director of Middle East Studies at the American Enterprise Institute. This Attack Iraq Likudnick Pack cooked up the stories of Iraq¶s potential deployment of WMD¶s and attempts by Iraq to purchase yellow cake uranium in Niger. Perhaps they were envisioning the yellow sponge cake Jews love so much. In his State of the Union speech on January 28, 2003 Bush said, ³The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.´ WMD investigator Joseph C. Wilson debunked this lie in February 2002 and as a result the Jew and Likudnick ³Scooter´ Libby released the fact that Wilson¶s wife, Valerie Plame, was a CIA agent60 to the press as a reprisal against Wilson. At Yale Libby was a supporter of the Black Panthers and a hippy who took part in the antiVietnam War movement. It was there Libby took courses from Wolfowitz who hired him first in 1981 as a speechwriter and an Asia analyst at the State Department under President Ronald Reagan and in 1989 as a strategist in the Defense Department, headed by Cheney in the administration of the first President George Bush. Between government stints, Libby practiced law with the firm of the Jew Leonard Garment, counsel to President Richard M. Nixon. Libby was convicted for perjury in connection with the Plame Affair and is deep camel dung, where he belongs. Before he goes to

prison he was hired by the Hudson Institute,61 which has other candidates for incarceration such as Conrad Black, the one time owner of the Jerusalem Post. The Hudson Institute, which has more Jews than a shuck62 has thieves, is funded by a host of multi-nationals63 who have been convinced by the Jews that their future well being is somehow intertwined with that of the State of Israel when just the opposite is true. Feith¶s unit generated so much propaganda one would think Saddam Hussein started the Chicago Fire, instead of Mrs. O¶Leary¶s cow. When no weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq Feith explained. ³The danger was too great that Saddam might give the fruits of his programs to terrorists for use against the United States. And that threat did not hinge on whether Saddam was actually stockpiling chemical or biological weapons.´64 Feith¶s office concocted non-existent links between al-Qaeda and Iraq, such as an October 27, 2003 memo from Feith to Senators Pat Roberts and Jay Rockefeller, the chairman and vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, rehashing the fabrications of anonymous sources and placing it next to some valid information.65 The American Department of Defense issued this press release in regard to this memo: ³The classified annex was not an analysis of the substantive issue of the relationship between Iraq and al-Qaeda, and it drew no conclusions.´66 Lie after boldfaced lie. The neo-cons who might just as well have been Likud moles (but they were too smart to have any covert contact with Israeli Intelligence), through their Zionist lobby front group AIPAC recruited Larry Franklin, a Brooklyn-born Catholic father of five. Franklin had put himself through school, earning a doctorate, as an Air Force reservist, and served as a Soviet intelligence analyst at the Defense Intelligence Agency until about 1996, when he learned Farsi and became an Iran specialist. Franklin worked in the office of Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Feith and reported on the progress of our Iranian Brothers in their quest for ³nuclear energy.´ Franklin even went as far as meeting with traitorous Iranians under the auspices of neo-con Michael Ledeen.67 Franklin pleaded guilty and was sentenced to twelve years in prison. He agreed to testify against Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman the two Israeli spies but the neo-cons and their ³think tank infrastructure´ behind them will remain untouched. Franklin, Rosen and Weissman were more attuned to the real problems Israel faced in the future, then those who worked the Iraqi angle.

Fresh scrutiny on a rogue Pentagon operation By Joshua Micah Marshall, Laura Rozen, and Paul Glastris
In the early 1990's Richard Perle and the vanguard of the Jewish think tank infrastructure, the American Enterprise Institute, befriended Ahmad Chalabi who was on the CIA payroll68 via the Iraqi National Congress in a very meaningful way. Ahmad Chalabi was the source of much of the New York Times reporter Judith Miller¶s information on WMD being produced in Iraq. Jewdith Miller is a Jew. Chalabi was supposed to rule Iraq after the Jewish-inspired invasion ended but this never happened leaving Iraq in chaos. Chalabi: ''The real culprit in all this is Wolfowitz. They chickened out. The Pentagon guys chickened out. We would have taken hold of the country. We would have revitalized the civil service immediately. We would have been able to put together a military force and an intelligence service. There would have been no insurgency. We would have had electricity. The Americans screwed it up. In Wolfowitz's mind, you couldn't trust the Iraqis to run a democracy. 'We have to teach them, give them lessons,' in Wolfowitz's mind.´ Chalabi became a liability for the CIA. His funding got cut. Wolfowitz told the American Congress, ³That was a decision that was made in light of the process of transferring sovereignty to the Iraqi people. We felt it was no longer appropriate for us to continue funding in that fashion.´69 The CIA started leaking false news stories about Chalabi: In 1995 Ahmad Chalabi's name was discovered in an encrypted Iranian cable regarding a CIA-backed plan to assassinate Saddam Hussein. In 2004 an Iranian message from an agent in Baghdad revealed Ahmad Chalabi had told him that U.S. intelligence was able decode Iran¶s cryptography.70 Seymour Hersh got in on the act to further his own agenda and reported that it was the Israelis who cracked the code. This implied that the Israelians leaked this information to Ahmad Chalabi.71 The offices of the Iraqi National Congress in Baghdad were raided on November 20, 2004 and the American puppets sought to arrest some Iraqi National Congress employees for kidnapping and embezzlement of American funds. The Iraqi National Congress issued this press release: ³The Iraqi National Congress today announced that the US Central Intelligence Agency led raids on four Iraqi National Congress facilities recently. Three Iraqi National Congress offices in Baghdad were attacked and heavily armed US civilians accompanied by masked Iraqis attacked the Iraqi National Congress office in Najaf last week. The offices were vandalized, a number of staff was assaulted, and equipment and documents were stolen. Staff members who requested to see search warrants were beaten and abused and no warrants were produced. CIA operatives in Iraq are out of control and are operating outside the bounds of American and Iraqi law. The CIA is failing in its duty to protect US forces and the Iraqi people from terrorists and is attacking groups and individuals who point out its failures. The Iraqi National Congress will take action in the Iraqi legal system to force the CIA and its Iraqi

agents to act within the law. The Iraqi National Congress appeals to the US government to stop the CIA from engaging in political vendettas and rededicate itself to fighting America's true enemies.´72 Richard Perle commented on another raid: ''I think the raid on his house was intended to result in violence. They had sent 20 or 40 Humvees over there. A force of about 100 guys with machine guns was protecting Chalabi. It is a miracle that it didn't result in a massive shootout.'' Aside from spying for Iran Ahmad Chalabi¶s crew was accused of having substituted counterfeit Iraqi dinars for real ones when they were destroying dinars with Saddam¶ face on them and were given new ones to replace them. The Jewish Senator Lieberman came to Ahmad Chalabi¶s defense73 as did the homosexual Jew Edward Jay Epstein as quoted in the National Review. The CIA fought back against the neo-cons and leaked a story that Ahmad Chalabi¶s Intelligence chief Aras Karim Habib has been accused of being an Iranian spy in September.74 The FBI took this story seriously and gave polygraph tests to everyone in the Pentagon who had access to the Iranian code information in order to find out who gave Chalabi this information. Even after this scandal broke open Wolfowitz continued to defend Chalabi: ³some of the intelligence that his organization has provided us has saved American lives and enabled us to capture some key enemy targets.´75 All the charges were dropped against Chalabi76 just as Jordan agreed to vacate Chalabi¶s conviction for bank fraud in Jordan and his 22year sentence. There were stories in the press linking his ³exposure´ as an Iranian agent to the Jordanians.77 On September 1, 2004 Chalabi, exonerated, re-entered Iraqi politics.78 By November 2005 Chalabi was having dinner at the home of Richard Perle along with some of Chalabi's old neo-con Washington friends. He gave a speech at American Enterprise Institute. Ostensibly, he has been invited to Washington by Treasury Secretary John Snow to talk about the Iraqi economy. But met with Cheney, Rice and Rumsfeld.79 The allegations that prompted the raid on Chalabi's compound 18 months before that he tipped the Iranians to American eavesdropping, are mysteriously forgotten. In July 2005 Deputy Prime Minister Chalabi¶s convoy was attacked.80 In May 2006 in Mansour, Baghdad, a roadside bomb exploded near the motorcade of Ahmed al-Chalabi, head of the De-Baathification committee. Chalabi was not injured.81 Homemade bombs struck two sport utility vehicles belonging Ahmad Chalabi, a Mansour resident, twice in June 2006.82

When President Bush expressed his desire to destroy Saddam Hussein Vincent Cannistraro said that the flow of intelligence to the top levels of the administration had been deliberately skewed by hawks at the Pentagon, an oblique reference to the Wolfowitz PAC: ³CIA assessments are being put aside by the Defense Department in favor of intelligence they are getting from various Iraqi exiles, Machiavelli warned princes against listening to exiles. Well, that is what is happening now.´ He also said: ³I think the campaign is well underway to tie all kinds of terrorism to Saddam as a way of promoting an invasion of Iraq. But Saddam has been pretty careful to keep his skirts clean in terms of actual involvement, other than funding for the families of suicide bombers.´83 Americans For Middle East Understanding¶s Robert L. Norberg wrote a letter to the Washington Post protesting the Attack Iraq Wolfpack¶s war mongering and demanding its members recuse themselves due to their dual loyalty.84 Thank Allah [subhanahu wa ta¶ala] that Wolfowitz failed to comprehend the danger to America of a Shi¶ite government in Iraq and has suggested that a ³moderate´ ayatollah would make an acceptable President. While an anti-American Shi¶ite demonstration was in progress, Wolfowitz cited the fact that our Shi¶ite Brothers had failed to rise up against the American troops as proof of their loyalty. This Jew was to decide which of America¶s prisoners of Islam would be charged with crimes and brought before military tribunals. But having a Jew preside over these tribunals would have exposed the hidden hand of Likud, so Rumsfeld appointed several Christians to do the job.85 On Sunday October 26, 2003 al-Qaeda in Mesopotamia almost killed the dog Wolfowitz at the al-Rashid Hotel in Baghdad with rockets fired from beyond the security wall that surrounds the hotel. Wolfowitz¶s visit was supposed to be a secret, but there was a source within the hotel that an informant has alleged was Muslel Muhammed Farhan Al-Dilemi, 53, the manager of the Al-Tamoor Trading Company that provides kitchen services to the hotel.86 We even knew the floor he was on but the missile missed and killed an American officer one floor below Wolfowitz. WOLFOWITZ VIOLATES A MUSLIM WOMAN The paramour of Wolfowitz, Shaha Ali Riza is a senior World Bank official who was born in Tunis, grew up in Saudi Arabia and holds an international relations masters degree from St Anthony's College, Oxford. The Jew and the Muslim rarely go out as a couple openly or demonstrate affection publicly, all praise to Allah, otherwise our stomachs would turn if a picture like this appeared in the press. Shaha Ali Riza sometimes goes to official functions and dinners with him, but is not identified as his partner.

She previously worked for the Iraq Foundation, set up by the CIA and expatriates in 1991 then established the Middle East programme at the National Endowment for Democracy, a CIA front created under Ronald Reagan in 1983. The Chairman of the National Endowment for Democracy, Vin Weber is co-director with Jack Kemp, Jeane Kirkpatrick and Bill Bennett, of the neo-con front group Empower America, and both Kirkpatrick and Bennett are part of the American Enterprise Institute, the nexus of Jewish control of American foreign policy.87 Riza is divorced and has a 17year-old son, who lives with her in Wesley Heights in an elegant street of townhouses popular with foreign diplomats who are based in nearby embassies. Her former husband, Bulent Ali Riza, is a Turkish Cypriot who heads the Turkish programme at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.88 As president of the World Bank Paul D. Wolfowitz has suspended hundreds of millions of dollars in loans and contracts to nations including India, Chad, Kenya, Congo, Ethiopia and Bangladesh.89 IRAQ¶S LINKS TO AL-QAEDA Jihadi have had some help from Iraq in the 1980¶s, but our major supporters have been elements within Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Yemen and Iran. Despite our religious doctoral differences with the Islamic Republic of Iran the Elder¶s of Islam have ruled that it is permissible to allow them to help in the struggle against our non-Muslim enemies and at the same time it is also permissible to kill Shi¶ite rejectionists. America should have invaded Iran not Iraq and al-Qaeda thanks the vindictive Wolfowitz PAC for quenching its thirst for revenge for the Iraqi SCUDs that hit Israel. The Wolfowitz PAC convinced themselves through a form of self-hypnosis that Saddam was producing WMD¶s.90 If Saddam was not producing WMDs then why throw out the U.N. weapons inspectors? These donkeys failed to see that Saddam was a modern day Caligula who possessed elements of madness, cruelty, viciousness, extravagance and megalomania. Like Saddam, Caligula was a coarse and cruel despot with an extraordinary passion for sadism, though was himself a coward who surrendered to the Americans without firing a single shot. He led his country into disaster by fighting wars against Iran and the United States that he had no hope of winning. He was a madman willing to destroy willing to murder countless Muslim Brothers and their women and children in Saudi Arabia as evidenced by this transcript of a tape seized by the American occupation forces: Saddam: What is it doing with you, I need these germs to be fixed on the missiles, and tell him to hit, because starting the 15th, everyone should be

Saddam: We want the long term, the many years kind . . . Husayn Kamil: There has to be a decision about which method of attack we use; a missile, a fighter bomb or a fighter plane. Saddam: With them all, all the methods. I want as soon as possible, if we are not transferring the weapons, to issue a clear order to [those concerned] that the weapon should be in their hands ASAP. I might even give them a ³non-return access.´ (Translator Comment: to have access to the weapons; to take them with them and not to return them). I will give them an order stating that at ³one moment,´ if Iµm not there and you don¶t hear my voice, you will hear somebody else¶s voice, so you can receive the order from him, and then you can go attack your targets.

Saddam Hussein¶s allegiance to Islam was theoretically written in blood as he donated 28 liters of his blood over two years, and a famous calligrapher mixed it with ink and preservatives. Inside a special sanctum in an Iraqi mosque, there were 650 pages of the Qu¶ran written with this mixture! In reality his allegiance was to wealth: After the American occupation of Iraq the invaders tore down a cinderblock and concrete barricade at an abandoned cottage and found $320 million American dollars. An additional $600 million was found in a palace and $112 million was discovered inside seven dog kennels where top Baath Party and Republican Guard officials had lived.

determined to occupy Iraq, released this statement: ³Regardless of the removal or the survival of the socialist94 party or Saddam, Muslims in general and the Iraqis in particular must brace themselves for Jihad against this unjust campaign and acquire ammunition and weapons. Under these circumstances, there will be no harm if the interests of Muslims converge with the interests of the socialists in the fight against the crusaders, despite our belief in the infidelity of socialists. The jurisdiction of the socialists and those rulers has fallen a long time ago. Socialists are kuffar wherever they are, whether they are in Baghdad or Aden.´ A document found with Saddam Hussein warned his Iraqi supporters to be wary of joining forces with al-Qaeda.95 Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman publicly denounced Saddam and had once been booed off the pulpit at the Al-Farooq Mosque because of this, but on other occasions he stated: ³It is legitimate to kill all those who are standing with the United States and against Iraq.´ Abu Zubaydah, when in United States custody, stated that al-Qaeda had no links to Saddam Hussein. He told the CIA that Usama bin Laden rejected the very thought of working with the corrupt and irredeemable Hussein. A CIA interrogation report concerning Zubaydah read, "Bin Laden viewed the Iraqis, particularly the military and security services, as corrupt, irreligious and hypocritical in that they succumb to Western vices while concurrently remaining at war with the United States. The Iraqis were not viewed as true jihadi, and there was doubt amongst the senior Al-Qaeda leadership on the depth of Saddam's commitment to destroy Israel and further the cause of cleansing the Holy Land of kafir influences or presence.´ A five-member team appointed by the United Nations Security Council found no evidence linking Al-Qaeda to Saddam. Only a small number of prisoners in Guantanamo who wished to please the Americans claimed there was the slightest co-operation between Usama bin Laden and Saddam. High-ranking Iraqi officials now in American prisons, such as Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, have denied any such co-operation existed.96 According to debriefs of multiple Iraqi detainees - including Saddam Hussein and former Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz and captured documents, Saddam did not trust al-Qaeda or any other radical Islamist group and did not want to cooperate with them. Hussein reportedly believed, however, that al-Qaeda was an effective organization because of its ability to successfully attack U.S. interests. The FBI provided the Senate Intelligence Committee with two summaries of statements made by Saddam Hussein regarding his regime's relationship with al-Qaeda. The summary said that when told there was clear evidence that the Iraqi government had previously met with bin Ladin, Saddam responded, "yes." Saddam then specified that Iraq did not cooperate with bin Ladin. In response to the suggestion that he might cooperate with al-Qa'ida because "the enemy of my enemy is my friend," Sadaam answered that the United States was not Iraq's enemy. He claimed that Iraq only opposed U.S. policies. He specified that if

Aziz told the FBI that "when the Taliban was in power, the Iraq government deliberately avoided opening an embassy in Kabul." Aziz underscored Saddam's distrust of Islamic extremists like bin Ladin, stating that when the Iraqi regime started to see evidence that Wahabists had come to Iraq, "the Iraqi regime issued a decree aggressively outlawing Wahhabism in Iraq and threatening offenders with execution." 169 FBI, IIR: Interview with Aziz Regarding former Regime's Posture Toward al-Qa'ida, June 2004. 170 FBI, Response to SSCI Questions, p. 3. 171 FBI, IJR: Interview with Aziz Regarding former Regime's Posture Toward al-Qa'ida, June 2004. 172 Id. 173 Id. Page 67 A simple check of Usama bin Ladin¶s phone records revealed little contact with Iraq: Doctor Saad al-Fagih, 45, a bearded surgeon in charge of our London-based Movement for Islamic Reform in Arabia used his credit card to help buy the Compact-M satellite phone in the United States that was shipped to his home in north London and then transported to Afghanistan for use by Usama bin Laden. More than 200 calls were made to Khalid al-Fawwaz, or to pay phones near where he lived. From 1996 to 1998 there were also no cell phone calls to Iraq.97 MAHFUZ AZZAM In January 1998 a call was made to Mahfuz Azzam, a retired diplomat from Egypt who lives in London and is the great-uncle of Ayman al-Zawahiri. Mahfuz Azzam, 74, is a ranking member of Egypt's Labor Party, an Islamist group allied with the Muslim Brotherhood. At a conference sponsored by Montassar AI-Zayyat Azzam stated, The campaign against the international terrorism is a mask for an excuse to dismantle the Muslim world. The current war no longer has anything to do with bin Laden or the Taliban: the objective is to besiege the Islamic world and to dismantle the Arab nation. Any attack against Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir, Palestine, Sudan or Iraq will wake up, without a doubt, a sleepy giant. I talk about the Islamic forces that once imagined that the coexistence with them (the West) was possible. Those forces will end the present image of the world and they will transform it.98

His other maternal uncle is Salem Azzam, who runs the European Islamic Council in London. At the close of 1993, Kalim Siddiqui appeared to be moving towards formal international co-operation under the banner "European Islamic Council."99 Kalim Siddiqui founded the Muslim Institute and arranged a lecture course in London by Hamid Algar,100 translator of Imam Khomeini's writings into English. Dr. Kalim Siddiqui and other Institute members also toured Britain, the US and other countries, addressing meetings to explain the true significance of events in Iran to excited, but often uninformed Muslim audiences.101 Siddiqui held a book burning after the fatwa was put out on Rushdie. In a word Siddiqui was an agent of Iran. In his interrogations in 1981, al-Zawahiri stated that his uncle Salem provided him with money and Mahfuz had links with the Muslim Brotherhood: ³As for the financing of our cell, it was self-financed in part through donations and subscriptions from our members. Such sources, however, were not sufficient. When my brother traveled to Saudi Arabia at the end of 1976, he put aside part of his salary which he used to send us: and so did his two other friends who were also working in Saudi Arabia. My brother Mohamed called a friend of ours named Salem Azzam in London and asked him for money to use against the Egyptian Government. So he sent one thousand dollars to my brother who then forwarded it to me.´ Later al-Zawahiri testified that these confessions were extracted from him under torture and that Azzam did not give him any money. This testimony led to the acquittal of the Azzam brothers.102 Other members of the al-Zawahiri family involved in Jihad include Dr. AlZawahiri¶s brother, Muhammad al-Zawahiri. In April 1999 Muhammad al-Zawahiri was rendered from UAE to Cairo. In 1981, his name was on the list of defendants in the assassination of President Sadat. He was acquitted of all charges in absentia by an Emergency State Security court but, according to his uncle, was afraid to return to Egypt. In the mid-1980s, Muhammad joined the Saudi government-run World Islamic Relief Organization (the Muslim World League) as an architect then moved to Yemen and the Sudan in the early 1990¶s where he was re-united with his brother Ayman. In 1999 a military court sentenced him death in ³the returnees from Albania´ case as he had set up a training camp there on the instructions of his brother. Muhammad¶s youngest brother, Hussain al-Zawahiri, was arrested in Malaysia and sent to Egypt in an operation coordinated between Malaysian security, Egyptian intelligence, and the CIA. Hussain was working as an engineer for Multidiscovery, a Malaysian company, building power plants. He had been arrested few times in Egypt on suspicion of affiliation with Egyptian Islamic Jihad, but was never indicted and was not wanted in Egypt or elsewhere at the time of his arrest. He was held for six months, tortured and then released.103

Although al-Qaeda did not support Saddam we opposed the sanctions the brunt of which fell on the Iraqi people. Usama bin Laden: ³As for their accusations of terrorizing the innocent, the children, and the women, these are in the category of accusing others with their own affliction in order to fool the masses. The evidence overwhelmingly shows America and Israel killing the weaker men, women, and children in the Muslim world and elsewhere. An example of this is the death of more than six hundred thousands Iraqi children because of the shortage of food and medicine that resulted from the boycotts and sanctions against the Muslim Iraqi people« Then, killing hundreds of thousands of children in Iraq, and whose numbers (of dead) continue to increase as a result of the sanctions.´ The fairy tale fed to the American people claims that in 1992 al-Qaeda had established low-level contact with Iraqi intelligence agents in the Sudan, Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere. Colin Powell upped the ante: ³We know members of both organizations met repeatedly and have met at least eight times at very senior levels since the early 1990¶s.´ In January 2004 Powell conceded he had no incontrovertible proof of a link between the government of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and AlQaeda.104 Papers of questionable origin found in the headquarters of the Iraqi Intelligence Service indicated that an al-Qaeda envoy was invited clandestinely to Baghdad in March 1998 after which arrangements were discussed for bin Laden to visit Baghdad, however this visit never took place.105 The American propaganda machine, aided by those who wished to sue Iraq for allegedly taking part in the events of September 11, 2001, churned out numerous unsubstantiated reports about our connection to Saddam such as: Between April 25, 1998 and May 1, 1998, two of bin Laden¶s senior military commanders, Muhammad Abu-Islam and Abdallah Qassim reportedly visited Baghdad for discussions with Qusay Hussein. By mid-June 1998 operatives of bin Laden and alQaeda were allegedly at the at the Nasiriyah training camp in Iraq receiving instruction and training from Iraqi intelligence and military officials on reconnaissance and targeting American facilities and installations for attacks. (We had more experience than the Iraqis in this brand of unconventional warfare. What is more America¶s main source of this information, Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi, later admitted he was lying most likely to please his captors).106 This disinformation was based on Abu Hafs al-Mauritani's travels as it has since been determined, "it appears likely, in retrospect, that senior al-Qa'ida official, Abu-Hafs, the Mauritanian, visited Iraq at least once in June 1998. He possibly also visited Iraq in March 1998, but this is less certain and based solely on circumstantial evidence." Senior Iraqi official Abid Hamid Mahmud al-Khattab al Tikriti told the FBI that once Saddam learned of Abu Hafs' presence in Iraq, Saddam directed that Abu Hafs should leave Iraq as soon as possible. Saddam asked al-Tikriti and his group of senior advisors why the al-Qa'ida representative had chosen to come to Iraq. Al-Tikriti told the FBI "Hussein was worried that the al-Qa'ida operative's presence in Baghdad would cause a problem for Iraq." Another group of bin Laden and al-Qaeda jihadi reportedly

received a month of sophisticated guerrilla operations training from Iraqi intelligence officials later in June 1998. In mid-July 1998, Usama bin Laden reportedly sent Dr. AlZawahiri to Iraq to meet with senior Iraqi officials, including Iraqi vice president Taha Yassin Ramadan al-Jizrawi. Iraqi officials allegedly pledged Iraq¶s full support and cooperation on the condition that bin Laden and al-Qaeda not incite the Iraqi Supreme Shi¶ite Council and the Muslim Brotherhood against the regime of Saddam Hussein. This would have been in violation of the laws of the Qu¶ran that only recognize a government based on Shari'ah. In FBI postwar debriefings of Former Iraqi Vice President Taha Ramadan, Ramadan stated that prewar "press reports which claimed that he had met with al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri were completely false. Ramadan denied having any connections to bin Ladin.107 The legend invented by the Wolfowitz PAC continued: By mid-November 1998, Iraqi intelligence officials met with bin Laden in Afghanistan. Bin Laden, al-Qaeda, and Iraq agreed to join efforts in a detailed coordinated plan for a protracted war against the United States. Iraq also agreed to provide bin Laden and al-Qaeda with the assistance of an expert in chemical weapons, and bin Laden agreed to hunt down Iraqi opposition leaders who co-operated with the United States against Saddam Hussein. In furtherance of this agreement, bin Laden reportedly dispatched four hundred of alQaeda¶s ³Afghan´ Arabs to Iraq to fight the Kurds, forming Ansar al-Islam. This information is part of a legend created by an Iraqi exile regarding the functions and connections of Unit 999, part of Saddam¶s secret police apparatus. Subsequently it was demonstrated that Iran sponsored Ansar al-Islam. Mullah Krekar told Al-Hayat: ³When I arrived in Tehran, an official from Iranian intelligence called Hashemi, who is in charge of Iranian intelligence operations in Syria and Lebanon, visited me. An official from the Iranian Revolutionary Guards called Elnouriyan accompanied him. They asked me to announce that I had stopped working with Ansar al-Islam and to start working with them. They explained that my mission would be to undermine security in Iraq by sending persons to plant devices and assassinate Iraqi officials.´ Mullah Krekar said that he refused Iran¶s offer. Iran has steadfastly denied any connection to Ansar al-Islam despite reports that its supplies originated in Iran.108 Despite numerous efforts to deport him, Mullah Krekar remains in Norway where he recently termed the Danish Blasphemous Cartoons, ³A declaration of war.´ LITTLE ORPHAN AL-ANI: THE ATTA / AL-ANI MEETING The former Iraqi Intelligence Service Director Brigadier Majid Hasan al-Majid warned Saddam on an unknown date that U.S. intelligence was attempting to fabricate connections between the Iraqi Intelligence Service and al-Qaeda.

Samir al-Ani109 and Shaheed Mohammad Atta in Prague. The mythological Atta ± Ani meetings of June 2, 2000 and April 9, 2001 in Prague, Czech Republic was a foul smelling load of bird droppings dumped on the Americans by the Iraqi war hawks. Mohammed Atta, who entered the United States on a temporary visa and lived in the United States for nearly a year and a half, spent about three weeks in total outside the United States coordinating our activities110 but did not meet with or encounter Al-Ani as the neo-cons convinced most Americans he had.111 In May 2000 Mohammed Atta obtained a visa for the Czech Republic from the Czech Consulate in Hamburg. Atta arrived in Prague from Germany by bus then flew to the United States the next day. Atta¶s roundabout route was ascribed to his seeking a cheap fare or concealing the origin of his travel to the United States but the Iraqi War Propagandists realized this circuitous route would be just what the doctor ordered in terms of dirtying up Iraq for 9/11 and justifying the its upcoming occupation. The Elder¶s are aware that the CIA had an asset who was also an informant for the Czechs. This Arab asset was instructed to link Al-Ani to Atta after shortly after 9/11 in a classic false flag operation. Only years later was it revealed that according to all other intelligence agents working for the Czech government Ahmad Al-Ani was about 70 miles away from Prague on April 8-9, 2001 and did not return until the afternoon of April 9, 2001 while the source was firm that the sighting occurred at 11:00 A.M. THE JUNE 2, 2000 MEETING THAT NEVER TOOK PLACE The Jew William Safire and other neo-cons disseminated a story that on June 2, 2000 Mohammed Atta met with Ahmad al-Ani at the Iraqi Embassy in Prague, but Safire had the most credibility. His story was based on information allegedly indirectly supplied to him and other journalists by a Arab snitch working only for the Czechs. The story defies the rules of tradecraft - although Iraq enjoyed good relations with Czechoslovakia¶s Communist rulers and procured weapons and military technology from them, it was no secret that the Czech¶s had the Iraqi Embassy under surveillance and might have even had agents within.112 It would have been dangerous to rendezvous at this hotspot rather than at a neutral location. THE PHOTOGRAPH THAT NEVER EXISTED The British Broadcasting Company reported that Czech counter-intelligence photographed Mohammed Atta and Ahmad al-Ani at the Embassy on the day Mohammed Atta flew to the United States, which would be June 3, 2000. No such photograph ever surfaced. When Mohammed Atta¶s presence was disputed Interior
. Al-Ani was a spy whose cover was Chief of Consular Affairs at the Iraqi Embassy. Czech intelligence officers spotted Ahmad AlAni in the vicinity of the Prague Radio Free Europe building, a facility that was beaming hostile broadcasts to Iraq at the time, while he was taking pictures of it. 110.

Minister Stanislav Gross issued a statement that ³B.I.S. (Czech Intelligence) guarantees the information, so we stick by that information. No backing away; on the contrary, strong reaffirmation.´ Later, Czech President Vaclav Havel told the White House he had concluded that there was no evidence to confirm earlier reports of this meeting and that proof of its existence was based on the testimony of one Arab informant, not on surveillance photos.113 The CIA Director, George J. Tenet, agreed with Havel. In June 2004 Stanislav Gross and former Prime Minister Milos Zeman blamed each other for having confirmed this information.114 THE APRIL 9, 2001 MEETING THAT NEVER TOOK PLACE In January 2001 Mohammed Atta flew from Miami to Madrid and returned to the U.S. six days later. When he returned to Miami, an alert immigration officer noticed his tourist visa has expired, and that he had violated its terms by taking flight lessons. Mohammed Atta was held for questioning then granted an eight-month visa extension. Czech Interior Minister Stanislav Gross initially stated that Mohammed Atta had a second meeting with al-Ani in April 8, 2001. Mohammed Atta allegedly flew in directly from Florida and returned to Florida several days later. No record has been found of Atta having spent the night at any Czech hotel.115 Analysis by the FBI of Atta's travel and financial records demonstrated that it was extremely unlikely that Atta could have been in Prague for the April 9, 2001 meeting. The FBI had evidence that Atta checked out of a hotel in Virginia Beach on April 4, 2001 and cashed a check in the area that same day. On April 11, 2001, Atta rented an apartment in Coral Spring, Florida. Between April 6, 2001 and April 17, 2001, billing records indicate that a cell phone registered to Atta placed several calls to numbers in Florida. The September 11th Commission reported, ³We have examined the allegation that Mohammed Atta met with an Iraqi intelligence officer in Prague on April 9, 2001. Based on the evidence available²including investigation by Czech and U.S. authorities plus detainee reporting²we do not believe that such a meeting occurred. The FBI¶s investigation places him in Virginia as of April 4, 2001 as evidenced by this bank surveillance camera shot of Atta withdrawing $8,000 from his account. Mohammed Atta was back in Florida by April 11, 2001 if not before. Indeed, investigation has established that, on April 6, 2001, April 9, 2001, April 10, 2001, and April 11, 2001 Mohammed Atta¶s cellular telephone was used numerous times to call Florida phone numbers from cell sites within Florida. We have seen no evidence that Atta ventured overseas again or re-entered the United States before July, when he traveled to Spain and back under his true name.´ In July 2002, a DIA paper stated that "Muhammad Atta reportedly was identified by an asset (not an officer) of the Czech service only after Atta's picture was widely circulated in the media after the attacks, approximately five months after the alleged meeting occurred. The paper added: ³There are significant information gaps in this reporting that render the issue impossible to prove or disprove with available information. It is unclear why the source did not report on the meeting in April 2001 or

May 2001. Atta was unknown at the time but he would have been significant as a contact of al-Ani, who was under Czech scrutiny at the time. Also, there is no photographic, immigration or other documentary evidence.´116 In Iraqi Support for Terrorism the CIA noted, "various reports put Atta in Prague on at least four occasions between late 1994 and the spring of 2001." The CIA could confirm only two of the visits - in December 1994 and June 2000 -but neither of the trips matched the date of the meeting between al-Ani and Atta alleged by the Czechs. The June 2002 CIA paper, Iraq & al-Qaeda: Interpreting a Murky Relationship, stated regarding the April 9, 2001 meeting that "Reporting is contradictory on hijacker Mohammed Atta's alleged trip to Prague and meeting with an Iraqi intelligence officer, and we have not verified his travels.117 William Safire claimed the FBI had car-rental and other records that Atta left for Prague on April 8, 2001, and returned on April 11, 2001.118 Who leaked Safire this information or did he make it up? No car rental records or references to them in FBI reports have ever surfaced. It was an out and out lie to the American people, to get them to go to war against Iraq. Other than Safire¶s dirty lies, there is no evidence that Mohammed Atta was not in Virginia Beach, Virginia, in early April 2001. THE PROOF IS IN THE PRISONERS The Czechs eventually expelled Ahmad al-Ani for the Radio Free Europe surveillance. Ahmad Al-Ani was arrested on July 2, 2003. Ahmad Al-Ani was interrogated but had provided little information. The American Vice President Cheney said this after his capture: ³We've never been able to develop anymore of that yet either in terms of confirming it or discrediting it. We just don't know.´119 The American media had reported that Ahmad al-Ani has denied having met with Mohammed Atta, in Prague or anywhere else for that matter.120 The 9/11 Commission backed up the media accounts: When questioned about the reported April 2001 meeting, Ahmad Al-Ani now in custody - has denied ever meeting or having any contact with Atta. Ahmad Al-Ani says that shortly after 9/11, he became concerned that press stories about the alleged meeting might hurt his career. Hoping to clear his name, Ahmad Al-Ani asked his superiors to approach the Czech government about refuting the allegation. He also denies knowing of any other Iraqi official having contact with Mohammed Atta.´

America¶s Senate Committee on Intelligence agreed, ³During the June 2004 debriefing of former Iraqi Intelligence Service Officer, Ahmad Khahlil Ibrahim Samir alAni, the FBI noted that "al-Ani claimed he never saw or heard of Atta until after [Atta's] face was shown on the news.´ Al-Ani also told the FBI that he was: ³Very surprised to hear that a 9/11 hijacker was associated with travel to Czech Republic. When he heard that his own name was being linked with that tragic event, he knew there would be problems. As the story began to escalate, he [al-Ani] made several unsuccessful attempts to persuade the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to issue a statement addressing the issue and correcting the inaccuracy, especially since it had brought him so much unwanted attention."' Tariq Aziz, Iraq¶s deputy prime minister, denied these meetings took place: This is not only baseless. It is also ridiculous. I checked with the diplomat when I read the allegations against him and I can say categorically that they are false. I know these reports are being published in the American and British press all the time, but they are not true. We have no connection with al-Qaeda or Usama bin Laden. It¶s clear, you see, our national and political system is different; we are a socialist party, we don¶t condone religious fundamentalism, and therefore we don¶t have any relationship with those people.´ Tariq Aziz has been seized by the Americans but has still maintained no such meeting took place. Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and Brother Ramzi bin al-Shibh both deny that an Atta-Al-Ani meeting occurred. There was no reason for such a meeting, especially considering the risk it would pose to the operation. Bush the Younger admitted, ³We've had no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with September 11th.´ If the Atta-al-Ani meeting was the biggest lie, then this allegation put forth by the relatives of John O¶Neill, a former FBI agent killed on September 11th is the most absurd: ³According to Giovanni DeStafant, an international lawyer visiting Baghdad on business, he encountered bin Laden in the lobby of the five-star al-Rashid Hotel in Baghdad. They engaged in light conversation.´121 THE ISLAMIC PARLIMENTARY DEMOCRACY OF IRAN The former Iranian state¶s elected executive branch, led by President Mohammad Khatami and the Council of Ministers, had no jurisdiction over any branch of the security forces, not even the traffic police. President Khatami complained that hard-line clerics had made it all but impossible for him to do his job and that he would propose legislation to adjust the balance of power so that he could pursue reforms. He attempted to curb the powers of the Guardian Council, a panel consisting of six members appointed by the supreme religious leader Ayatolah Ali Khamenei, and six jurists, elected by the Majlis122 from among Muslim jurists proposed to the Majlis by the non-elected Head of the Judiciary. This panel has the power to reject any legislation

that violates Islamic law. The panel has the right to interpret the Constitution and disqualify apostate candidates from running for office and in January 2004 they disqualified half the 8,200 candidates in parliamentary elections.123 As a result most socalled reformist candidates were defeated. Ayatolah Shahrudi, who heads the panel, has the license to annul verdicts or request new trials if he found court decisions go against Shari'ah. He has shut down many so-called reformist newspapers and put their owners on trial.124 The vast majority of those publications can be characterized as antiIslamist in their editorial orientation. Ayatolah Ali Khamenei forbade the Majles to consider a new bill that would have rolled back necessary press curbs passed in the final days of the previous, Islamic-majority Majles. The current press law also gives the courts, which are dominated by Islamists, the power to determine who may own and work for a particular paper. Ayatollah Khamenei also has strong ties to the Basij volunteer morality squads and the Revolutionary Guards, and has won the allegiance of some powerful seminaries in the religious center of Qum by giving them state funds. He also has strong allies in the Guardian Council and the Assembly of Experts, an Iranian version of the Americans Electoral College, which exercises oversight of the leader.125 The Americans point to this as an example of autocratic rule. However, the Christian fundamentalist and former Attorney General John Ashcroft, who, like the Learned Elders of Islam, believes that all dancing is immoral, has become a one man Guardian Council of America, and has rejected a recommendation from federal prosecutors not to seek the death penalty for a suspect despite the fact that the suspect was promised life imprisonment in return for his cooperation.126 Ashcroft ordered prosecutors to show no mercy and seek the most serious, readily provable offense in all federal prosecutions.127 Ashcroft is a member of the Christian Assembly of God. Other members of this sect have included Jim Bakker, a once popular televangelist (defrocked by the Assembly of God after a sex/financial scandal), Tammy Faye Bakker, former wife of Jim Bakker and Jimmy Swaggart a televangelist who was instrumental in exposing the Jim Bakker scandal; soon thereafter scandalized himself after being repeatedly caught with prostitutes.128 The Learned Elders of Islam hope John Ashcroft comes to realize that he is part of a church with a long history of corruption and converts to Islam. We know he is out of work and believe he would make a very effective prosecutor in a Shari'ah court.

In the Islamic Republic of Iran restrictions on assembly, association, religion, and movement are harshly enforced. Evangelical Christian groups must compile and hand over membership lists for their congregations to the Ministry of Islamic Culture and Guidance and to the Ministry of Intelligence and Security. Of course non-believers cannot serve in the army, the judiciary, and the security services. The Constitution states: ³The Army of the Islamic Republic of Iran must be an Islamic army, i.e., committed to an Islamic ideology and the people, and must recruit into its service individuals who have faith in the objectives of the Islamic Revolution and are devoted to the cause of achieving its goals.´ Non-believers, in particular Baha¶is, are allowed no freedom by the judiciary and security establishment because the Bahá¶ís are not a legitimate religious group, but are considered an outlawed political organization and must register with the police. Ruhollah Rowhani, a Bahá¶í, was executed in July 1998 after having served nine months in solitary confinement on a charge of apostasy stemming from allegedly having converted a Muslim woman to the Bahá¶í ³faith.´129 Bahá¶í marriages are not recognized; leaving Bahá¶í women open to charges of prostitution. The current regime believes that execution by stoning is a fitting penalty for prostitution and it is common. Women are buried up to their armpits to stop stones hitting their breasts. Men who are stoned to death are first buried waist-deep in the ground. If they have confessed to their crimes and manage to escape, they can go free. With the support of some misguided clerics, female members of the Iranian Parliament have put together a bill that would eliminate stoning from the penal code. In 2002 the head of the judiciary announced a moratorium on stoning. In its 2002 annual session, the U.N. Human Rights Commission130 excluded Iran from its list of countries that violate human rights. According to the United Nations, violations of civil and individual liberties such as freedom of expression, association, organization, discrimination against women, abuse of children, and also executions, torture, amputations, and stoning, which have been carried out in the last 23 years, do not continue today. This U.N. Human Rights Commission resolution must be decisively applauded by all genuine Islamic organizations. Decades after the Islamic Revolution the human rights situation in Iran remains much the same as was under the rule of the Shah and the SAVAK, his secret police force, except this time, the right people are being arrested and tortured. This despite the fact that the Islamic Republic¶s Constitution states, ³All forms of torture for the purpose of extracting confessions or acquiring information are forbidden. Any testimony, confession or oath obtained under duress is devoid of value.´ Ahmad Zeidabadi, a 37year-old journalist was put in solitary confinement and then thrown in with heroin addicts and the criminally ill. ³The criminals use rape, especially with the newcomers. And when you¶re taken everywhere blindfolded and hear horrible, scary screams, and you are put in a tiny cell, you have the feeling you will never see normal life again,´ he said. This

In January 2003 the United Nations Commission on Human Rights, meeting in Geneva, elected Libya to its chairmanship after the United States demanded and lost a vote. This offended the West to the point where the UN Commission on Human Rights was disbanded until 2006, when it was revived as the UN Human Rights Council.
torture was not done by guards or police but by other prisoners so it conformed to the constitution. The justice of Islamic law is blind. In January 2002, the Ayatollah Mahmud Hashemi-Shahrudi, a stalwart of Iran¶s conservative camp which already dominates the country¶s judiciary and political institutions, presided over the trial of 15 people, including journalists, intellectuals, and a former cabinet minister. Tried in the Revolutionary Court for plotting to overthrow the Islamic system, they had no jury. The Ayatollah was the prosecutor, and the defendants¶ lawyers were maneuvered through the trial without having seen the several-hundred-page indictment or meeting with the prisoners. Ayatollah Shahrudi was appointed the Islamic Republic¶s Deputy Justice Chief on May 12, 2002. With the help of the Guardian Council and the invasion and occupation of Iraq, the Iranian people have overwhelmingly elected hard line conservative legislators ± knowing that Islamists would fight to the end if America invaded Iran. The electorate put into power perhaps the greatest threat to the Jews since Hitler, Dr. Mahmood Ahmadi-Najad. Once again there are myriad extra judicial killings, summary executions and disappearances in Iran. When these socalled human rights abuses that exist only in the eyes of the Western kuffar occur and are brought to light, and the followers of the Prophet [PBUH] must go unpunished. Due, however, to the overwhelming reformist feelings of the Iranian masses Islamists are sometimes forced to sacrifice those who have been loyal to Allah and the Islamic regime of Iran, such as Saeed Emami. PAKISTAN: HOW LONG CAN BUSHARAFF REMAIN IN POWER? The future of Islamism rests with Pakistan, a country still filled with freedom fighters. Brother Saifullah Paracha: ³When President Reagan was elected in 1980, Vice President Bush a former CIA director, realized the importance of the Afghan invasion and the defense of Muslims. So, the U.S. propagated Jihad, called freedom fighting; freedom fighters, young rebellious, radical Muslims were brought in to fight the Russians. It took almost 10 years to win that war. Finally, Russia left. Those freedom fighters were left there, and are still there in thousands. Pakistan and Afghanistan share an unregulated, uncontrolled border. Many fled to Pakistan as refugees, and they are still there and have been there for 20 years. They have no family, parents, or brothers and sisters. They have not been accepted back to their home countries - they have become Pakistanis. They act like Pakistanis, eat the same food, look like Pakistanis, so no one can tell them apart. Anybody raised in Pakistan could come from anywhere, and nobody knows who's who.´ America harbors deep-seated doubts about the Pakistanis: The September 11th detainees were citizens of more than 20 countries, however, the largest number, 254 or 33 percent, came from Pakistan, more than double the number of any other country. We will wait patiently for all of Pakistan, including Kashmir, Balochistan and Punjab to join
the Ummah and become an Islamic Republic, for al-Qaeda has known forever that the Pakistani political situation has always been fluid, to use a euphemism.131 In September 2003 Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri ordered Busharraf¶s death: It is Musharraf who enabled America to topple the (Taliban¶s) Islamic emirate in Afghanistan. Had it not been for his tremendous help, America would not have been able to do this, nor would it have been able to kill thousands of innocents in Afghanistan. It is Musharraf who is seeking to send Pakistani forces to Iraq so that they, rather than American soldiers, are killed and so that they kill Muslims in Iraq and enable America to control Muslim lands. Muslims in Pakistan must unite and co-operate to topple this traitor and install a sincere leadership that would defend Islam and Muslims. On December 14, 2003 Busharraf came within a camel¶s hairbreadth of assassination when a bomb detonated under a bridge 30 seconds after his motorcade crossed. Broad frequency jamming devices in Musharraf¶s limousine interfered with the remote transmitter. On November 19, 2004, a military court sentenced civilian Mushtaq Ahmed to death for inciting six junior officers of the Pakistan Air Force,132 including two who were jailed for life and four who were sentenced to death. Mushtaq Ahmed escaped from an Air Force Prison in November 2004. ³He made good his escape while going to the bathroom to make ablutions for pre-dawn prayers. He broke a window in the bathroom and escaped´ but was captured in May 2005 along with Mohammad Arshad a Pakistani al-Qaeda militant freed from prison in Afghanistan. Amjad Hussain Farooqi who drove Daniel Pearl to the nursery where Pearl would meet his death, helped organize these assassination attempts on behalf of al-Qaeda. On September 26, 2004 Musharraf¶s henchmen killed Farooqi133 who was under the command of Abu Faraj al-Libbi.
. In 1958 martial law was declared and political parties abolished. General Ayub Khan became ³President´ in 1960. In 1969 the head of the army, General Agha Muhammed Yahya Khan, replaced General Ayub Khan. After Bengla-Desh won its independence in 1971, President Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto took over as President from the military regime. In 1977 the military again took power in a coup, and re-established martial law under General Mohammed Zia ul-Haq. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto was executed in 1979. Zia confirmed the death sentence on the man who, as prime minister, had personally picked Zia, then the most junior lieutenant general, for promotion to Chief of Army Staff over the heads of his seniors. Military rule continued until the death of former President General Mohammed Zia ul-Haq in a plane crash in 1988, after which a democratic Constitution and civilian government were re-instituted. There were six previous attempts at assassinating Zia, including a near miss by a missile fired at his plane. (Brigadier Mohammad Yousaf ³The Man Behind the Afghan Jihad.´ http://www.afghanbooks.com/beartrap/english/01.htm) Ali Bhutto¶s daughter, Benazir Bhutto, came to power. In August 1990 President Ghulam Ishaq Khan dismissed Bhutto and her government. In the next election in October 1990 the Islamic Democratic Alliance, led by Mohammed Nawaz Sharif, defeated Bhutto. In July 1993, the army forced the resignation of Mohammed Nawaz Sharif and supervised new elections, which were won by Benazir Bhutto¶s ally Farooq Ahmad Khan Leghari. In October 1996, President Farooq Ahmad Khan Leghari dismissed Bhutto and her government, and dissolved the National Assembly. The ensuing general election returned Mohammed Nawaz Sharif for a second term as premier. Sharif forced President Leghari from office and installed his own nominee, Mohammed Rafiq Tarar. In May 1998 Sharif authorized the military to carry out a series of nuclear tests. Throughout 1998 and 1999, the army assumed a more aggressive stance towards India but in August 1999, under pressure from the U.S.A., Sharif ordered the army to back down. This triggered a series of clashes between Sharif and his army chief of staff, General Pervez Musharraf, which culminated in October 1999 with a military coup. Musharraf forced President Tarar out of office and had Sharif imprisoned pending trial. In August 2002 Musharraf unilaterally redrew the Pakistani Constitution, and imposed 29 amendments that expanded his control and undermined coming parliamentary elections meant to return the nation to democracy. 132 .

ABU FARAJ AL-LIBBI Abu Faraj Al-Libbi temporarily took over Al-Qaeda operations in Pakistan after the March 2003 arrest of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed.134 On May 3, 2005, after receiving a tip from the head of US Central Command, who paid a surprise visit to Pakistan and conveyed information to president Pervez Musharraf on al-Libbi¶s location in Mardan in Pakistan¶s North West Frontier Province based on cell phone positioning, al-Libbi was bagged. The raid turned into a chase when two Brothers fled on a motorbike. One, clad in a Burqa, was later identified as al-Libbi. The chase involving three vehicles ended when security officials overpowered the man driving the bike. They also fired at the second fugitive, but he ran towards a half-built house, jumped into an adjoining house and locked himself in a room. When efforts to break open the door failed, police lobbed a teargas canister inside the room through smashed windowpanes. "From the smokefilled room emerged a young man, hands up and head slightly bowed. He was unarmed and later identified as Abu Faraj Al Libbi," a police official said.135 In the Ayman al-Zawahiri to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi letter a reference was made to Abu al-Faraj Al Libbi¶s arrest: ³Please take every caution in the meetings, especially when someone claims to carry an important letter or contributions. It was in this way that they arrested Khalid Sheikh. Likewise, please, if you want to meet one of your assistants, I hope that you don't meet him in a public place or in a place that is not known to you. I hope that you would meet him in a secure place, not the place of your residence«´ (one of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed¶s assistant¶s, Mohammed Omar Abdel Rahman, had given him up)«because Abu al-Faraj - may God set him free and release him from his torment - was lured by one of his brothers, who had been taken into custody, to meet him at a public location where a trap had been set.´ After Pakistani security forces arrested Abu al-Faraj al-Libbi the Bush administration thought they had captured Abu Anas al-Libbi, the third most powerful figure within the al-Qaeda hierarchy. But there had been a case of mistaken identity. Abu Anas al-Libbi is on the list of 22 "most wanted" figures drawn up by the United States after the attacks on the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998. On December 25, 2003 Busharraf, who acts more like a Christian than a Muslim, received a Christmas present from the Brothers of Al-Qaeda affiliate Jaish-eMuhammad when two suicide bombers plowed their vehicles into his motorcade and detonated car bombs. Busharraf was unhurt, but the bombs killed at least 14 people, including both Shaheeds. At least 46 other people were wounded. Muhammad Naeem, an official of the Islamabad¶s police Special Branch, who was described as an Intelligence Officer with the National Emergency Relief Cell,136 tipped off Brother Mohammad Jamil to Musharraf¶s precise movements. Pakistani police recovered Mohammad Jamil¶s cell phone chip and found an incoming call from the mole.137

Maulana Abdul Jabbar was detained for the attack on the president because Mohammad Jamil, who was reading the Qu¶ran just before he went to heaven,138 had worked under his command in Jaish-e-Muhammad. Maulana Abdul Jabbar had previously been detained for attacking churches such as the
Protestant International Church in Islamabad on March 17, 2002, Christian School at Gharial near Murree on August 5, 2002, and 139 Taxila Christian Hospital on August 9, 2002. Maulana Abdul Jabbar was responsible for gathering Pakistan's first group of suicide bombers and was a middle-rung leader in Maulana Fazlur Rehman Khalil's group HUM before he joined hands in January 2000 with Maulana Masood Azhar to form a splinter group, Jaish-e-Mohammad. JAISH-E-MOHAMMAD
In 1994, Maulana Masood Azhar, a leader of the HUM, who had fought along with bin Laden's Al Qaeda against the US troops in Somalia and had participated in the training of Al Qaeda's supporters in Yemen, was arrested by the Indian authorities and detained in a Jammu jail till December 1999, when he had to be released as demanded by HUM cadres, including Azhar's brother, who had hijacked an Indian Airlines' plane to Kandahar. Sheikh Gilani said Daniel Pearl visited Maulana Masood Azhar before Pearl¶s kidnapping. Busharaff was supportive of the warrior-cleric Azhar. When Azhar was released from an Indian jail he was permitted to stage a huge rally in Karachi attended by gun-bearing followers. In 2001 Musharraf even tried unsuccessfully to persuade the various Kashmiri guerrilla groups to unite under Azhar. Maulana Masood
Azhar was kept under house arrest on quite a few occasions, but he was never charged under any terrorist laws. RASHID RAUF
Rashid Rauf, described as the key planner of the aborted August 2006 Bojinka Sequel Operation to blow up US-bound airliners using bombs made from low density material smuggled on board then assembled in the men¶s room, was closely associated with Jaish-e-Mohammed. Rashid Rauf is married to a close relative of Maulana Masood Azhar.140 He fled to Pakistan in April 2002 after the honor killing of his uncle, Mohammed Sayeed, in Birmingham and became the liason between Jaish-eS o f a r , t h e Mohammed and al-Qaeda.

Ulema-i-Islam¶s Fazlur Rehman Khalil faction.142 Rashid Rauf was also believed to have had co-operation from the members of Jamaatul Furqan, another breakaway group from Jaish-e-Mohamed, which was banned by Britain in October 2005. Maulana Abdul Jabbar is the leader of Jamaatul Furqan. Although Maulana Abdul Jabbar's name had surfaced in at least three suicide attacks, he was arrested late 2003 and was released in August 2004 because the police concluded that he had a change of heart. Maulana Abdul Jabbar is close to Pakistan's intelligence agencies.143 In January 2005 Maulana Fazlur Rehman Khalil, Maulana Abdul Jabbar and many other jihadi were placed under "informal" detention at the behest of the US and are still under observation.144 In February 2006 Jabbar might have been in the UK.145 The UK is seeking Brothers Rauf¶s extradition on the basis of his complicity in his uncles killing, however there is no extradition treaty between Pakistan and the UK. In December 2006 a Pakistani judge threw out terrorism charges against Rashid Rauf. The ruling means there are now no terrorism charges against two people once accused of being linchpins. The other is Tayib Rauf, Mr. Rauf's younger brother, who was detained in Britain in August and was soon set free without charge. ''Rauf was booked under six charges, such as impersonation, cheating, forging documents, presenting those forged documents as real and keeping explosives,'' Hashmat Habib, his lawyer, said. ''When we scrutinized the charges, we were of the opinion that none of the charges fell under the jurisdiction of the antiterrorism court. The court agreed with our objection.''146 Musharraf still needs domestic Islamists in the popular war to liberate Kashmir from the Hindu idolaters and the Pakistani Government still utilizes fighters like Hafiz Sayeed, leader of Lashkar-i-Taiba,147 (also spelled Lashkar-e-Tayyaba) considered to be the largest of Pakistan¶s militant Islamist Kashmirian independence groups.148 The Markaz campus at Muridke in Lahore, Lashkar-i-Taiba headquarters, was used as a hide-out for Ramzi Yousef and Mir Aimal Kansi.149 In 1998 Pakistani Information Minister Mushahid Hussain, along with Punjab Province Governor Shahid Hamid, and other provincial ministers, visited the headquarters of Lashkar-e-Taiba and appreciated the work of the organization. Mushahid Hussain not only hailed the activities of Markaz Dawa al-Irshad,150 which trains and maintains Lashkar-e-Taiba, but he also said the Markaz taught the true concept of Islam. Although he was arrested in the anti-´terrorist´

sweep following 9/11, Brother Hafiz Sayeed served his sentence in a government guesthouse with access to a mobile phone. He is now free. Of the Brothers who were arrested and were not Pakistanis, 443 have been remanded to the custody of U.S. authorities. In August 2006 Brother Hafiz was re-house-arrested but released in October 2006 for lack of evidence. Randall Todd Royer, who served as a communications specialist and a civil rights coordinator at CAIR was indicted and arrested for his association with Lashkar-e-Taiba. He allegedly traveled to Pakistan, did propaganda work for it, and ³fired at Indian positions in Kashmir´ with a machine gun and Rocket Propelled Grenade. In addition, his indictment states that Royer ³possessed in his automobile an AK-47-style rifle and 219 rounds of ammunition´ in September 2001. It was charged that on or about May 8, 2003, in Gaithersburg, Maryland, codefendant Masoud Ahmad Khan possessed a photograph downloaded from the Internet of the FBI Headquarters building in Washington, D.C.151 In November Judge Leonie Brinkema sentenced three of Royer¶s co-defendants to 11½, 11¼ and 3 years and 10 months in prison.152 Royer received a twenty-year prison sentence. Someday al-Qaeda will take out Musharaff. The preceedings incidents were the seventh and eighth attempt since he took power in 1999 and will not be the last.153 No one likes this man. Neo-con Richard Armitage had to threaten to ³bomb Pakistan back to the Stone Age´ to get Busharaff to cooperate after 9/11. In late February 2007 Cheney flew to Pakistan after almost being taken out in Afganistan to threaten Musharffaf with a cut-off of aid if he did not behave. Musharraf got our messages, along with the message of the Islamists in the Pakistani parliament and he proclaimed that he would step down as army chief by the end of 2004 but remain the country's president but when the time came to do so he reneged.154 President Musharraf relies on the religious party Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam, or J.U.I., which dominates Balochistan, as an important partner in the provincial and national parliaments. The Inter-Services Intelligence has been supporting a Taliban restoration, motivated not only by Islamic fervor but also by a longstanding view that the jihadist movement allows them to assert greater influence on Pakistan's vulnerable North West Frontier Provinces. Former Taliban members who have refused to fight in Afghanistan have been arrested -- or even mysteriously killed by the ISI -- after resisting pressure to re-enlist in the Taliban. Hamid Gul, the former director general of Pakistani intelligence, remains a public and unapologetic supporter of the Taliban, visiting madrasas and speaking in support of Jihad at graduation ceremonies. Afghan intelligence officials recently produced a captured insurgent who said Gul facilitated his training and logistics through an office in the Pakistani town of Nowshera, in the North-West Frontier Province, west of the

capital, Islamabad.155 After a jihadi cell of 12 people was picked up in Kabul, two of the men continued to receive cellphone calls while in custody, urging them to explode their bombs, the intelligence official said. The calls came from an Afghan commander called Pir Farouq, who lives in the Shamshatoo Afghan refugee camp in Peshawar and is closely allied with Hekmatyar. When Afghan intelligence, at NATO's behest, passed on the cellphone number of Pir Farouq to Pakistani intelligence officers, the Afghan informer, a member of the commander's inner circle, was swiftly killed, his body cut into eight pieces and dumped in the camp. Another group of jihadi were captured as they were planning attacks on NATO forces in northern Afghanistan. That cell was also connected to Hekmatyar, but organized by another of his commanders who lives in Quetta.156 The Afgan Intelligence Service fought back by floating a false news story based on a statement by a detained Taliban spokesman157 that alleged Mullah Muhammad Omar was hiding in Pakistan.
THE NORTH WEST FRONTIER PROVINCES In October 2002, religious parties that had won only four seats in the Pakistan National Assembly in last election in 1997, won at least 49 seats, and had the elections not been rigged would have garnered a majority. What is more important is that Islamists have taken control of the local government in two provinces of Pakistan, the North West Frontier Province and Balochistan. The pro-Taliban Islamist government elected in the North West Frontier Province has passed the Enforcement of Shari'ah Act and Provincial Accountability Act in the provincial assembly. Islamic Shari'ah is the supreme law in the province, and Qu¶ran and Sunnah is the sources of guidance for future legislation in the North West Frontier Province. Even before this the playing of music and videos in public transport was banned. Pubs and gambling dens were closed. Special police squads raided cinema houses in the city of Peshawar and brought down posters showing actresses in vulgar postures - twenty-three cinema owners were detained. Drivers of buses were ordered to stop their vehicles at mosques during prayer times, if passengers makes specific requests and it is now a legal offence if any driver turned down such a request. Separate mosques for women at bus stands were set up since there was no separate place for women to offer their prayers. Pakistani military officers stationed in this province have been arrested and accused of having ties to the Taliban and al-Qaeda.158 Recently the Islamist-led provincial legislature has passed a bill that would empower religious police to ensure that the people of Frontier Province comply with "Islamic values and etiquettes" in everyday life. The hisba police and a government-appointed cleric would adjudicate cases.159

Neighboring Balochistan province has agreed to form a coalition with the North West Frontier Province.160 Alcohol is now banned in both provinces and the prisoners belonging to the defunct religious outfits that were banned by Busharraf claiming that they were involved in sectarian killings and terrorist activities were ordered released before Eid.161 General Hamid Gul, the retired head of the Inter-Services Intelligence agency who advises the new government of the North West Frontier Province stated: ³We have the nuclear capability that can destroy Madras [India]. Surely the same missile can do the same to Tel Aviv. Washington cannot stop Muslim suicidal attacks. Taliban are still alive and along with friends they will continue the Holy Jihad against the U.S.´ Hamid Gul is "strategic adviser" to the six-party coalition of Islamists known as Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal that threatened nationwide demonstrations to protest Musharraf's military offensive in the federally administered tribal areas to find Usama bin Laden. Presumably to preempt this, Musharraf announced military operations in federally administered tribal areas were completed and the army was satisfied bin Laden was not hiding somewhere in the 2,500-killometer-long Afghan-Pakistan frontier region. General bin Laden and General Gul share a geopolitical vision that merges Pakistan's nuclear arsenal and the oil riches of a post-monarchy Saudi Arabia in a revival of the Holy Muslim Caliphate. Gul told a closed meeting of Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal leaders who were attending a wake for the deceased wife of the coalition's vice president Sami ul-Haq they should begin planning for Musharraf's succession. General Gul's candidate: Dr. Abdel Qader (A.Q.) Khan.162 Balochistan Information Minister Hafiz Husain Ahmed Sharodi said 9/11 was ³a conspiracy by the Israeli intelligence service Mossad to start a war between Muslims and Christians.´163 The Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal an Islamist Pakistani Party came in third place in the 2002 National Assembly elections. When a true Islamic Republic is installed in Pakistan, al-Qaeda will have access to atomic weapons and the means to deliver them. We know from the Jew Seymour Hersh and other sources that the United States has contingency plans to seize Pakistan¶s nuclear arsenal if Busharraf falls and al-Qaeda has developed a plan to counter this. After the September 11th Raids, Busharraf ordered the country¶s nuclear weapons to be detached from their launchers and stored in six different secret locations with fail-safe security systems.164 Without Musharraf, who has blocked our infiltration into the Indian-held part of Kashmir, as did President Omar Sharif al-Qaeda will liberate the Muslims of Kashmir and destroy the polytheistic Hindus who have oppressed them! Allah - through the Prophets - cursed the Jews throughout time because like the Jew Hersh they constantly propagated treason, be it their way of life and their way of dealing with people. Because of this Allah, be He praised, said: ³The heretics among the Israelites were cursed by David and by Jesus the son of Mary because they rebelled

They did not counsel each other from committing evil, but [indeed] did it and therefore their deeds are sinful.´165 PROTOCOL 11. ± ISLAM HOLDS THE FINAL SOLUTION TO THE JEWISH QUESTION ISLAMISM AND NAZI HISTORICAL REVISIONISM Iranian President Mahmood Ahmadi-Najad adopted the Nazi revisionist line and publicly denied the holocaust. This sent a message to the Jews that their time for extermination has come once again. He is following in the footsteps of Hitler and especially Mussolini who pursued 'natalist' policies, to promote large families. Ahmadinejad has called for a purge of liberal and secular professors from Iranian universities, just as Hitler called for a purge of the Jews. Long before Mahmood Ahmadi-Najad made this statement and all that it implied Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, told a prointifada conference in Teheran that Zionists exaggerated the holocaust to justify their crimes against Palestinians. ³There is evidence which shows that Zionists had close relations with German Nazis and exaggerated statistics on Jewish killings. There is even evidence on hand that a large number of non-Jewish hooligans and thugs of Eastern Europe were forced to migrate to Palestine as Jews. The purpose was to install in the heart of the Islamic world an anti-Islamic state under the guise of supporting the victims of racism and to create a rift between the East and the West of the Islamic world.´166 In a sermon on Tehran Radio the former president of Iran, Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, who ran against Mahmood Ahmadi-Najad, declared himself fully convinced that ³Hitler had only killed 20,000 Jews and not six million.´ Mahmood Ahmadi-Najad took a lot of flack for his statements but he was not the only Muslim leader to espouse historical revisionism. In 1983, Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen), the golden boy of America, who subsequently emerged as the chief PLO architect of the Oslo Peace Accords, wrote The Other Side: The Secret Relations Between Nazism and the Leadership of the Zionist Movement. It was originally his doctoral dissertation, completed at Moscow Oriental College, in the Soviet Union. In it he wrote: Following the war, word was spread that six million Jews were amongst the victims and that a war of extermination was aimed primarily at the Jews...The truth is that no one can either confirm or deny this figure. In other words, it is possible that the number of Jewish victims reached six million, but at the same time it is possible that the figure is much smaller-below one million...It seems that the interest of the Zionist movement, however, is to inflate this figure so that their gains will be greater.

international public opinion with Zionism. Many scholars have debated the figure of six million and reached stunning conclusions--fixing the number of Jewish victims at only a few hundred thousand. Abbas denied that the gas chambers were used to murder Jews, quoting a scientific study to that effect by French Holocaust-denier Robert Faurisson. Mahmoud Abbas, who met with President Bush and other senior members of the administration, was Arafat¶s choice for Prime Minister of the Palestinian Authority. He resigned when asked to imprison the Brothers of Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad but reappeared only to have his party defeated by Hamas.167 He still remains President of the Palestinian Authority. The reason the world is taking Mahmood Ahmadi-Najad¶s threats seriously is because Iran with soon have atomic bombs and is determined to bomb Israel. AhmadiNajad¶s moderate opponent, Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani proclaimed on Jerusalem Day in Iran that ³one atomic bomb would wipe out Israel without a trace´ while the Islamic world would only be damaged rather than destroyed by Israeli nuclear retaliation.168 In December 2002 Seyed Mohammad Khatami, Shi¶ite religious leader and Iranian President, visited the Sunni leaders of Pakistan and complained that some countries were pressuring Pakistan to abandon its nuclear program. ³Pakistan is being pressured and influenced to give up its nuclear program by some countries but these countries should press Israel that has hundreds of nuclear warheads which are a serious threat to peace and security of the world.´ Despite Bush the Younger¶s threats, Iran is developing a uranium-enrichment plant that will be used for weapons-grade material for nuclear weapons as well as fuel for power generation and will have the bomb within two years.169 Iran has built a uranium enrichment plant in Natanz along with two other backup laboratories in the event the Natanz site is bombed.170 Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned: ³If the enemy attacks our scientific, natural, human or technological interests, the Iranian people will cut off its hand without hesitation and place in danger the interests of the aggressor everywhere in the world.´ By 2006 Iran¶s desire to produce a nuclear weapon became apparent to the world, as did the Iran¶s desire to exterminate the Israelis, ³wipe Israel off the map.´ That year Ahmadi-Najad convened a conference in Tehran to deny the holocaust so that when the one he has planned was effectuated, that one could be denied too! Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki, in his opening address, styled the conference as a scientific forum that would seek to find answers to the questioning of the holocaust by Ahmadi-Najad. Ahmadi-Najad has

repeatedly questioned the truth of the holocaust, describing it as a "myth" and casting doubt on the scale of the killings. The simple question of the president of Iran: 'If the holocaust is a historical event why can it not be researched?' The basic aim of this conference is not to deny or to prove the holocaust but is to provide an opportunity for researchers from Europe to give their views about this historical phenomenon. The reiteration of the necessity for the review and reexamination of the holocaust from a historical and scientific perspective is taking place in the same context. However, those whose political interests are tied to this formalistic interpretation do not tolerate the scientific skeptical approach of scholars and researchers and seek to prevent any independent research on the holocaust by whatever excuse they can make and accusations they can level against them. How can proNazism and anti-Semitism accusations against the researchers of history who whish only to know more about the historical events and the holocaust be justified? Today, many of those who claim to be against Nazism have themselves a track record of racist and colonial activism. And what colonialists have done against the local people in their own colonies is no less horrible than the crimes committed by the Nazis. Why should, then, only one form of such crimes be condemned and other forms of them be condoned. I declare explicitly that anti-Semitism is a Western phenomenon, which is peculiar to the Western states. This phenomenon has never existed in Islamic lands. However, we see today that the Islamic Republic of Iran and all those who think that scientific research about a historical event is necessary are subject to some unfounded accusations. And the accusations of pro-Nazism and pro-fascism leveled against such thinkers and researchers are the least price they should pay for their views; these accusations have no scientific basis since many of the critics of the holocaust have been themselves victims of racism.171 Robert Faurisson and German-born Australian Fredrick Toeben attended: Toeben, who maintains the existence of gas chambers is an "outright lie," and brought with him a model of the Treblinka extermination camp to this end, praised Ahmadi-Najad¶s stance on the holocaust. "He has clearly seen the importance the holocaust has for the rest of the world, which is beholden to the holocaust as a dogma, as an unquestioning dogma.´ David Duke, a US white supremacist and former Klu Klux Klan member, said he believed it was "scandalous" that Europeans could be sent to prison for expressing opinions about the Holocaust. "I think that Ahmadinejad is a very courageous man to talk about some of these issues," he said. For more and more Shi¶ia Mahmood Ahmadi-Najad is the Mahdi, or "Rightlyguided One," one of two messianic figures who, according to Islamic teachings, will appear at the end of time or in its latter day sense just before Israel is about to get
nuked. The Prophet Jesus is the other Mahdi. Together, these two will combat unbelievers and the forces of evil: the antichrist-like Dajjal, or "Deceiver"; the Dabbah, or "Beast"; and the murderous, rapacious hordes of Yajuj wa-Majuj, who appear earlier in the Bible as ³Gog and Magog.´ After emerging victorious, they will then usher in a worldwide Islamic state and redistribute wealth from the rich to the poor on a global scale. But beware! If Mahmood Ahmadi-Najad turns out to be the Mahdi then Allah favors the Shi¶ia, which cannot be.172 In any event, Mahmood Ahmadi-Najad, does not openly claim to be the Mahdi, just to enjoy a special relationship with him, ³Our revolution¶s main mission is to pave the way for the reappearance of the 12th Imam, the Mahdi,´ Ahmadi-Najad told a meeting of national religious leaders in November 2005. ³Today, we should formulate our economic, cultural and political policies based on the policy of Imam Mahdi¶s return.´ In 2004, while still mayor of Tehran, Ahmadi-Najad secretly ordered an urban reconstruction plan to make the city more accessible for the Mahdi¶s return. Since his ascension to the presidency, he has perpetuated this practice, funneling substantial federal funds (some $17 million) to renovate the Jamkaran mosque²which houses the well from which the Mahdi is expected to materialize²and opening discussions about the creation of a direct train route from there to Tehran.173 Prior to this historic conference in Tehran, in solidarity with Muslim the revisionist movement and the unseen hand of the Hizb¶allah, the Institute for Historical Review¶s Swiss affiliate organized a conference on Zionism and Revisionism that was to be held in Beirut Lebanon. After the Zionists put pressure on the Lebanese Government the conference was moved to Amman, Jordan. The featured speaker at this meeting, which was hosted by the Jordanian Writers¶ Federation, was French historical revisionist Robert Faurisson, who told a sympathetic audience: ³Hitler never ordered or allowed the killing of anyone on account of his or her race or religion and the Germans suffered, in reality, a fate far worse than that of the Jews.´ Robert Faurisson, a professor of French literature at the University of Lyon, France, and a crypto-Nazi who shares our goal of the destruction of world Jewry, was fired for being a ³racist´, after he was convicted for ³falsification of history´ in court, for writings denying the existence of gas chambers in Nazi Germany and calling into question the holocaust itself. During a radio interview Faurisson remarked: ³The alleged Hitler gas chambers and the alleged genocide of the Jews form one µsingle and same¶ historic lie, which has permitted a gigantic political financial hoax of which the principal beneficiaries are the State of Israel and international Zionism, and of which the principal victims are the German people (but not their rulers) and the entire Palestinian people.´174 A Paris court, however, acquitted French novelist Michel Houellebecq of charges of inciting racial hatred after he declared in an interview in 2002 that Islam was ³the most stupid religion.´ Three Muslim associations brought the case against him.

³When you read the Qu¶ran, you give up,´ he said. ³At least the Bible is very beautiful because Jews have an extraordinary literary talent.´175 In the mid-1960¶s, the Jew Professor Noam Chomsky, who is some species of Marxist was part of a number of New Leftists grouped around publisher Pierre Guillaume. These men were prominent for their support of the 1968 student demonstrators, and included Jean-Gabriel Cohn-Bendit, brother of Danny-the-Red Cohn-Bendit, the leader of the demonstrations, along with several historical revisionists. Pierre Guillaume published numerous works by rightwing historical revisionists. Noam Chomsky said, ³I see no anti-Semitic implications in denial of the existence of gas chambers or even denial of the holocaust, nor would there be anti-Semitic implications, per se, in the claim that the holocaust, whether one believes it took place or not, is being exploited, viciously so, by apologists for Israeli repression and violence. I see no hint of anti-Semitic implications in Faurisson¶s work.´176 Abu Jihad asked Chomsky about this statement. He responded: Part of the purpose of these hysterical attacks on me is to immobilize critics of their Holy States, and I have better things to do. Remember that it takes one phrase to produce some outrageous slander, and a paragraph to refute it. The quote comes from a personal letter I wrote about 1980 or so. And of course I agree with it, just as you do. U.S. anthropologists, until the 1960¶s, underestimated the number of indigenous people eliminated by about a factor of ten. We don¶t condemn them as racists. There were other reasons. Americans underestimate the number of victims of the U.S. wars in Indochina by a factor of twenty. We don¶t accuse them of being racist. There are other reasons. If a peasant from Mongolia heard about the Holocaust and refused to believe it, thinking that humans are not capable of such atrocities, we would not condemn him as an anti-Semite. You agree with this and so do I. That was precisely the context of the first sentence you quote, so we all agree with it. The only question of interest is why people who agree with it pretend to be scandalized by it. On the implications of Faurisson¶s work, at the time of the letter no one regarded it as anti-Semitic: neither his most extreme critics, like Vidal-Naquet, nor, a few years later, the French Courts, which condemned him for µFalsification of History¶ (a judgment that would greatly have pleased Stalin and Goebbels), but not for anti-Semitism: only for µallowing¶ his work to be used by others for nefarious purposes, whatever that is supposed to mean. Noam Chomsky signed a petition in Faurisson¶s behalf that became part of the introduction to one of the Professor¶s books: ³It is elementary that freedom of expression (including academic freedom) is not to be restricted to views of which one approves...´ This sounded like a defense of free speech, but the Elder¶s, who are

familiar with Chomsky¶s agenda, believe that this Jew lent his name to the revisionists because of his underlying desire to see his own race annihilated, just as Karl Marx did in World Without Jews, since Chomsky and Marx view Jews as the shock troops of capitalism. When Robert Faurisson was put on trial Alfred Lilienthal and Noam Chomsky defended him. In a brochure published by the Institute for Historical Review, Noam Chomsky was listed as giving a speech entitled ³The Middle East Crisis and the Threat of Nuclear War´ at the Fifth International Revisionist Conference held in 1983.177 Chomsky said that this was false. During the Revisionist Conference in Jordan, Palestinian Authority Communications Minister, Imad al-Falouji, and Palestinian Authority Secretary General, Ahmed Abdel Rahman, spoke about their experiences at a rally by prominent Palestinians in support of Roger Garaudy, 84, who was put on trial in Paris for denying the holocaust in his 1995 book The Founding Myths of Israeli Politics. Zionist groups accused him of denying crimes committed against humanity. Garaudy wrote that Hitler¶s killing of the Jews amounted to ³pogroms´ or ³massacres´ but that it was an exaggeration to call the Nazi crimes ³genocide´ or the ³holocaust.´ He also denied that six million Jews were killed. Garaudy is known for the radical changes in his views through a life that has seen him successively as a devout Christian, an atheist leader of the French Communist party and, when he was expelled from its ranks, a convert to Islam and a Muslim philosopher. Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani stated, ³Garaudy¶s crime derives from the doubt he cast on Zionist propaganda.´ An Iranian human rights body defended Garaudy as a scholar whose free speech rights were violated. ³This trial is a demonstration of disrespect and nonconformity to the practice of freedom of speech in association with a scholar who intends to make public his research to the community of mankind,´ said the Tehranbased Islamic Human Rights Commission.178 The commission, formed in 1995 by lawyers, parliament members and senior state officials, claims to be independent of the government, but of course, it is not, after all what is? At this meeting Islamists were given reprints from the official newspaper of the Palestinian Authority, Al-Hayat Al-Jadidah, of an article labeling the holocaust, ³the forged claims of the Zionists regarding the alleged acts of slaughter perpetrated against the Jews during the same period´ and a reprint from the July 1990 issue of Balsam, published by the Palestinian Red Cross. This article asserted that ³the lie concerning the gas chambers enabled the Jews to establish the State of Israel,´ and ³Jews regard themselves as the landlords of humanity, and the Nuremberg courts were manned mainly by Jews and their friends.´ The Learned Elders of Islam are puzzled as to why the Israelis are willing to meet with, and negotiate with Arab holocaust deniers but are unwilling to meet with those of European descent?

The idea of holocaust denial has always been part of the non-Jewish psyche. The revisionists did not invent it nor did we. In January 1943, after United States Undersecretary of State Sumner Welles publicly confirmed the ³final solution,´ a poll said that more than half of the American people did not believe that the Nazis were deliberately killing the Jews. In December 1944 the American public was asked: ³Nobody knows, of course, how many may have been murdered, but what would be your best guess?´ Twenty-seven percent of Americans answered, ³fewer than 100,000.´ One percent answered, ³up to 1 million.´179 The Learned Elders of Islam are well aware that the Jews did not invent the holocaust as an excuse to steal our lands. We know that six million died and hope that this was an underestimate. Through the Mufti and others Islamists were part of the final solution. We gave haven to our Nazi brothers by granting them refuge in Egypt and Syria after the war ended. But Islamists also know that if we can convince the world that the last holocaust was a hoax, when we launch another holocaust against Israel and world Jewry, we can convince them, with the help of Allah, that the new one was also a hoax! NEO-NAZISM AND ISLAMISM SHARE A COMMON ENEMY Our goal is Religious Holy War or REHOWA unlike the RAHOWA (Racial Holy War) of the neo-Nazis. George Lincoln Rockwell founded Neo-Nazism in America. Unlike the historical revisionist crypto-Nazis, the Neo-Nazis believed: By being an open, arrogant, all-out Nazi, not a sneaky Nazi, but a Nazi with the Swastika, storm-troopers and open declarations of our intentions to gas the Jew-traitors, I would not only make an end of the filthy µsilent treatment¶ - for they could never ignore Nazis with Swastika armbands and talk of gas chambers - but I would also force the Jews to publish my propaganda in their press! Every time they would howl that I advocated µgas chambers¶, people would be shocked, but they would also lose a tiny bit of their µfear of the Jews¶ as the Bible calls the filthy terror inspired by these µapostles of tolerance.¶ George Lincoln Rockwell was one of the first American Nazis to seek our support. Rockwell wrote: There was a pro-Jewish puppet government in Lebanon. The enraged Lebanese Arabs, who had suffered and had witnessed over a million of their fellow-Arabs driven into starvation and misery in the desert so that the Jews could µtake back a homeland¶ occupied by the Arabs for over 2,000 years threatened to take over their traitorous government and go after the international criminals who had butchered and banished their Arab brothers. The U.S. Jews used their usual tactics - press distortion

and secret pressure - to force µour¶ government to send the Marines to µdefend¶ the Lebanese puppet regime against its own people. The Jewish liars told us our intervention was to stop Gamal Abdul Nasser¶s µcommunism¶, when the truth was that we were saving Israel. George Lincoln Rockwell overlooked Nasser¶s communist tendencies because he received support from him: Harold Arrowsmith [a multi-millionaire eugenicist] appeared with an Arab he claimed was head of Nasser¶s intelligence. I had warned Arrowsmith to have nothing to do with Arabs, since we were picketing on the Lebanon situation and I wanted no charges of being a foreign agent. He had nevertheless brought this intelligence officer into the house, where my wife and another lady met him, and he now gave him all our oilcloth signs. He later told me that they were displayed to Nasser in Cairo. In the early 1970s, the Saudis worked with the Nazis and hired an American neoNazi, William Grimstead, as a lobbyist, to further their interests in the United States.180 We have nothing but admiration for Hitler and the leadership of the Third Reich. Fuzi Salim Ali Madi, one of the leaders of Arafat¶s elite unit, al-Fatah Force 17, went by the name ³Abu Hitler´ and named his two sons ³Eichmann´ and ³Hitler.´ In late 1997, a German neo-Nazi and convert to Islam, Steven Smyrek, who trained at an al-Qaeda camp in Afghanistan, was arrested with the Zionist entity for planning a suicide attack.181 On November 8, 2002 Swiss police raided the offices and home of our Brother, Ahmed Huber, 75, a neo-Nazi convert to Islam from Berne, Switzerland who had extensive dealings with the Grand Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini and who, until recently, made frequent trips to the United States. The raid was part of a coordinated dragnet that stole records from the offices of Al Taqwa.182 While Huber has worked closely with the Sunni wing of Islam represented by the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Taqwa, he has long been a leading supporter of the Shi¶ite Islamic Republic of Iran. Huber's is the only European Muslim ever to give a speech before the tomb of Imam Khomeini.183 Shortly after dual U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania, U.S. intelligence agencies tracked telephone contact between al-Qaeda and Albert Ahmed Huber.184 The U.S. government froze Huber¶s assets and pressured the Swiss government to arrest him. Huber, who was released from jail, now serves as the liaison between European neo-Nazis and Islamic organizations in Europe.185

Other Brothers with Nazi backgrounds include Louis Heiden also known as Louis Al-Hadj, a German expatriate, who translated Hitler¶s Mein Kampf into Arabic. Johannes von Leers, one of the Third Reich¶s most prolific Jew-haters, converted to Islam and changed his name to Omar Amin after he was given asylum in Cairo in 1955. ³If there is any hope to free the world from Jewish tyranny,´ Amin said ³it is with the Muslims, who stand steadfastly against Zionism, Colonialism and Imperialism.´ Formerly Goebbels¶ right-hand man, Amin became a top official in the Egyptian Information Ministry, which employed several European fascists who churned out literature and broadcasts that exposed the evil of the Jews.186 The now deceased William Pierce, author of the inspirational book, The Turner Diaries, has appeared on the web site of our Brothers in the Hizb¶allah. Pierce also was interviewed regularly on Radio Iran by telephone from his compound in West Virginia. ³We have a common cause: getting the U.S. government off the back of the rest of the world and getting the Jews off the back of the U.S. government. There is grounds for joint action,´ he said. In November 2002 a former U.S. Senator arrived in Bahrain to lecture on Behind the scene influence of the Zionist lobby on U.S. politics,´ at the invitation of a local religious centre. David Duke, who represented Louisiana in the U.S. Senate from 1989 to 1991 and ran unsuccessfully for governor the same year is a ³well-known critic of the Zionist lobby in the U.S. and its threat to the U.S. national security,´ said Mohammed Zuhair, manager of Discover Islam Centre. The centre, an educational institute serving mostly the non-Muslim community in Bahrain, sponsored Duke¶s four-day visit. During his stay, he delivered two lectures, ³Global Struggle against Zionism´ and ³Israeli Involvement in September 11 (attacks). Duke was a leader of the Klu Klux Klan in America.187 Tariq Ramadan also spoke at the Bahraini conference. Ramadan is a Swiss citizen, born in Geneva in 1962, the Grandson of Hassan AlBanna.188 Ramadan has been called the Martin Luther King of Islam as he has called for co-existence with West. This is merely a smokescreen. Ramadan had pointed out that the reality of Muslim life in Europe is not that there is freedom of religion, but that secularism is aggressively taught in schools; issues such as the hijab ban in France are often mentioned in Ramadan¶s lectures. He knows that the reality is not that there is freedom of speech, but that Muslims in Britain were vilified for defending the Prophet¶s [PBUH] honor in the Rushdie affair and that the reality is not of equal citizenship, but of widespread Islamophobia and discrimination. Ramadan understands

that the Muslim position in the West is inseparable from that of the Ummah¶s relations with the West at a global level. As long as the Islamic movement fights Western hegemony in Muslim lands, Muslims in the West will be seen as the enemy within, which we most certainly are.189 When Tariq wrote that ³French Jewish intellectuals'' -like Bernard-Henri Levy, Alain Finkielkraut, Bernard Kouchner, Andre Glucksmann and Pierre-Andre Taguieff (in fact not Jewish at all) -- who used to be ''considered universalist intellectuals'' had become knee-jerk defenders of Israel and thus ''had relativized the defense of universal principles of equality and justice´ it became more apparent why he spoke at the Bahraini conference. Both Le Monde and Liberation had turned down this article. Hani Ramadan, Tariq's brother, the head of the Swiss Islamic center founded by their father has a similar understanding of Islam, but he is more open in his beliefs. Hani Ramadan was suspended from his job as a high school French teacher in Geneva when Le Monde published his essay that justified stoning women as punishment for adultery.190 Brother Tariq Ramadan was given a position at Indiana¶s Notre Dame University but the Department of Homeland Security would not allow him to enter the United States. According to Ramadan191 this was a result of the efforts of a dangerous enemy of Islam, Daniel Pipes, who makes war on the soldiers of Allah, just as Pipe¶s father did on the atheists who ruled Russia. Daniel Pipes, a Jew, was behind the blasphemous cartoons including the one of the Prophet [PBUH] with a bomb in his turban that set off riots throughout our world. He confessed to this, ³Flemming Rose, cultural editor of a Danish newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, sent me an e-mail on September 29, 2004, introducing himself and requesting an in-person interview during his American trip. I agreed and Mr. Rose came to my Philadelphia office on October 25, 2004.´192 Just as the Department of Homeland Security was influenced by Pipes statement that Tariq Ramadan ³is playing a double game of hiding an Islamist agenda´ Rose was influenced by Pipes and published the now infamous cartoons that are the subject of a defamation action in France after the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo reprinted them. In March 2006 Tariq reapplied for entry to the United States. In September 2006 Ramadan, who took a post at Oxford University, said he had received an official letter effectively clearing him of charges that kept him from taking up a teaching position at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana. However, the letter from the United States Embassy in Bern, Switzerland, explained the continued ban by saying he had contributed about $770 to the French-based Committee for Charity and Aid to Palestinians, a Hamas front group.193 Ramadan's main argument was that ''We have heard the cries of 'down with the Jews!' shouted during protest demonstrations, and reports of synagogues being vandalized in various French cities. One also hears ambiguous statements about Jews, their secret power, their insidious role within the media, and their nefarious plans...Too

rarely do we hear Muslim voices that set themselves apart from this kind of discourse and attitude.'' In 1988 Inmullas Kahn, Secretary General of the World Muslim Congress Motamar Al-Alam Al-Islami, maintained close relations with the defunct crypto-Nazi newspaper, Spotlight.194 The constitution and rules and regulations of the Motamar AlAlam Al-Islami were framed and approved in a 1926 conference in Mecca held under the presidentship of Haj Amin al-Husseini, his Eminence the Grand Mufti of Palestine. He was elected as a President of the Motamar Al-Alam Al-Islami. The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee published the work of Mark Weber, a contributor to Spotlight.195 Members of the Muslim Brotherhood who had been scattered throughout the Middle East beginning in 1960 started the Muslim Student Association.196 In October 2003 the Muslim Student Association of the University of Pennsylvania asked the Reverend William W. Baker, a former chairman, the Populist Party and director of Christians and Muslims for Peace to speak. The Populist Party was an initiative of Willis Carto.197 In January 2004 Baker spoke at a Muslim conference in Toronto, Canada, along with Tariq Ramadan and Sirhaj Wahhaj.198 Baker, a resident of Laguna Hills, California, was once a regular guest speaker at the mainstream Reverend Robert Schuller's Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove. He was later ousted from the megachurch when the Jews put pressure on Schuller.
PROTOCOL 11. - WE OPPOSE GODLESS COMMUNISM 1. The mujahideen of many lands, under our guidance, have annihilated the godless Soviet communists, who had assumed power for the sake of their own advantage that is inseparably bound up with the well being of their elite communist aristocracy. But nowadays, with the destruction of the mujahideen of Afghanistan by the United States, the Afghanis have fallen into the grips of merciless money-grinding scoundrels who have laid a pitiless and cruel yoke upon the necks of the devout. 2. The Communists appeared on the scene as alleged saviors of the worker from oppression, so we propose to them to enter the ranks of our fighting forces ± even Socialists, Anarchists, Maoists -- to whom we always give support in accordance with brotherly love (of the solidarity of all Islam), after they accept and submit to Allah. These groups will be won over to Islam when they come to the conclusion that the communist aristocracy, which enjoyed, by law, the labor of the workers, was disinterested in seeing that the workers were well fed, healthy, and strong. Their power was in the chronic shortness of food and physical weakness of the worker because by all that this implies,

Hunger created the right of the Communist Party to rule the worker by the authority of the Jew Karl Marx. The Supreme Lord who will replace all now existing rulers among sub-cultures conquered by us, sub-societies that have denied even the authority of God, from whose midst breeds out on all sides the fire of leftism, radicalism, environmentalism, communism, anarchy, we must first of all proceed to quench this all-devouring flame. Therefore we will be obliged to kill off those existing sub-societies, or merge them with our own blood, that we may resurrect them again in the form of regularly organized troops fighting consciously with every kind of weapon at their disposal for Islam.

In 1942, even though he was only seventeen, Jacques Vergès joined the French Resistance but because France was blockaded, he wound up with the Free French in Britain under the command of General Charles de Gaulle. In 1949, he became president of the Association for Colonial Students, and quickly turned the group into a militant organization. One of the more active members of Vergès¶ student organization and one who influenced Vergès very much over the years was the young Pol Pot, who was studying at the Sorbonne. As an attorney, Verges first major case was that of a Muslim, Djamila Bouhired: On September 30, 1956 3 bombs were planted by women working with Yacef Saadi (producer of the movie Battle of Algiers): Zorah Drif (now Zorah Drif Bita Vice President of the Algerian National Council), and Samia Lakhdari and Djamila Bouhired a twentyyear-old Algerian woman. Two of the bombs actually exploded in public places patronized by local French youths. Three died and flying shards of splintered glass horribly injured 50 persons. During his courtroom speeches Vergès condemned the atrocities conducted by the French army in Algeria and the inherent unfairness of the imperial system that the government supported. Djamila Bouhired was sentenced to death. Soon after the trial, however, several journalists demanded that Djamila Bouhired be released on the account of her youth. By 1962 Djamila Bouhired was freed and she married Vergès in 1963. By this time Vergès had converted to Islam. In 1960 Vergès served two-months in prison for ³attempting to undermine the security of the state.´ His license to practice law was suspended for several years. In 1969 members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine were being tried for hijacking El Al planes and Vergès appeared as their attorney. When three members of
the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine stood trial after blowing up an Israeli jet in Zurich, Verges defended them. Francois Genoud paid for their legal costs. Again, Vergès employed his strategy by claiming the so-called terrorists¶ acts were political, not criminal, and that Israel was to be blamed for the El Al passengers¶ deaths, not the Palestinians. As in his previous cases, his defendants were found guilty, but in the process of their trial, their cause was well publicized. In 1970 Verges disappeared. He resurfaced in 1978 and was asked about his disappearance in 1984: ³I am a discreet man. I stepped through the looking glass, where I served an apprenticeship.´199 Had Verges served an apprenticeship with Francois Genoud? It was after his disappearance that he crossed the thin line between the left and right, for these terms have no relevance. Where did they originate? In the French Assembly before the revolution, the king¶s loyalists - nobles, aristocrats, courtiers, and supporters of the monarchy - sat to his right, whereas the bourgeois, democrats, republicanists, and opponents of the monarchy sat to his left. Ever since then, those who have advocated making society more egalitarian, liberal, and popularly managed and less hierarchical and stratified have been considered ³leftwing.´ The Communists were leftwing yet were hierarchical and far from liberal in their social attitudes. The National Socialists were rightwing yet were not monarchists who wished to restore the Kaiser to the German throne. Verges understood that his anti-imperialist goals were best served by abandoning this antiquated way of looking at the world. Verges began defending Nazis. In 1987 Verges represented Klaus Barbie, a Third Reich Nazi, the so-called Butcher of Lyons. In 1935, after submitting to undergo a test for his racial and medical purity, Barbie joined Himmler¶s SS. Barbie owed his postwar notoriety not to the deportation to Nazi death camps of 44 Jewish children and twenty thousand others, but to the arrest and torture unto death of Jean Moulin, (right) one of the highest-ranking members of the French Resistance. Hot needles where shoved under Moulin¶s fingernails. His fingers were forced through the narrow space between the hinges of a door and a wall and then the door was repeatedly slammed until the knuckles broke. Screw-levered handcuffs were placed on Moulin and tightened until they bit through his flesh and broke through the bones of his wrists. He would not talk. He was whipped. He was beaten until his face was an unrecognizable pulp. Jean Moulin remained in this coma when he was shown to other resistance leaders who were being interrogated at Gestapo headquarters. Barbie had ordered Moulin put on display in an office. It was the last time Moulin was seen alive. In Barbie¶s defense Verges argued that Nazi atrocities were comparable to French atrocities during their war against our Algerian Brothers who lived in the Third World under colonial oppression. Jacques Verges¶ hatred for Jews allowed him to

dismiss the real possibility that had he been able to join the Resistance within France, Barbie might have tortured him. At Brother Garaudy¶s trial in 1995 Verges said the law forbidding the denial of Nazi crimes against humanity was ³fascist, racist, wicked and against freedom´ and tried to ³freeze history.´ ³This is a witch hunt,´ Verges told the Paris court. Verges, who like most Communists wished to see the workers triumph over the bosses, represented Omar Raddad, a 37-year old Moroccan gardener who was sentenced in 1994 to an 18-year prison term for the murder of his employer, who wrote µOmar did it¶ in blood just before he died. Raddad was released after serving 7 years of the 18 year-prison term after French President Jacques Chirac granted him a partial amnesty. Verges also represented African leaders who had been accused of being in collusion with French colonialism in the book Black Silence, which set out to explore the murky relationship between France and its former African colonies. Presidents Denis Sassou Nguesso of Congo, Idriss Deby of Chad and Omar Bongo200 of Gabon used an 1881 law designed to protect foreign leaders from attack in print to demand a $42,000dollar fine for author Francois-Xavier Verschave. A French court dismissed their claim, declaring that the law was in contravention of the European Convention on Human Rights, which protects freedom of speech.201 Verges prepared a lawsuit against Amnesty International, on behalf of the government of Togo, which has accused it of human rights violations. The case was sparked by an Amnesty International report that accused the Togolese government of the disappearance of some 100 people, whose bodies were thrown into the Atlantic Ocean, only to resurface later. ³It¶s simply not credible that the army killed hundreds of people, threw them out of planes into the ocean and that hundreds then washed up along the beaches of Benin and Togo,´ Verges said.202 The Bosnian war brought to the world¶s attention the practice of ³ethnic cleansing,´ or forcibly expelling other minorities from certain areas in an effort to create an ethnically pure region. Christian Bosnian Serbs were at the forefront of such efforts. In the summer of 1992, they set up concentration camps at Omarska, Trnopolje and other Bosnian towns where thousands of Muslims were incarcerated and killed. The Saudi Arabian government demanded that the U.S. and Western Europe do something to aid its co-religionists. NATO attacked and Milosevic and his Christian forces were defeated. Milosevic was put on trial before an International Tribunal in The Hague. Jacque Verges was on Milosevic¶s defense committee. Why was this friend of Islamism defending a murderer of Muslims? Verges objected to the financiers behind the Tribunal. He has said: ³The donor States, don¶t forget that they are Muslim States like Saudi Arabia. As we all know, Saudi Arabia is an example of democracy...And then there is Mr. Soros! Today, one does not speak any more proletarians, Jews, Nazis...But

one speaks good people or bad as seen by NATO. Those which I believe are the new Masters of the world.´203 Saddam Hussein¶s half brother asked Verges to defend Saddam and he agreed to do so. In April 2006 Verges had this to say about the Islamic Republic of Iran, ³One threatens Iran, by saying that Iran should not have the atomic bomb. It should not be even suspected of having the means of making the nuclear bomb. Whereas Iran has two neighbors who have it already: Pakistan on one side and Israel of the other. Why these two countries have do right to the bomb and Iran not? Do not seek answers. They are decisions of powerful moment.204 FRANCOIS GENOUD Francois Genoud convinced Verges that Hitler wanted the people of the Third World to carry on the work of the Thousand Year Reich, even though Hitler would have regarded Verges as a half-breed, a mongrel; a genetic misfit. Genoud had convinced Verges that Western democracy was inherently racist and wished to enslave the world and not Adolf Hitler! In 1932, Francois Genoud briefly met Adolf Hitler. He told Hitler of his great interest in National Socialism, and Hitler shook his hand. Francois Genoud¶s parents had sent him from Lausanne, Switzerland, to study in Germany at 16 in order to learn discipline. Francois Genoud: ³My views have not changed since I was a young man. Hitler was a great leader, and if he had won the War the world would be a better place.´ In 1934 Genoud joined the pro-Nazi Swiss National Front. He traveled to Palestine. There he met the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Amin el-Husseini. El-Husseini considered Francois Genoud a confidant until El-Husseini¶s death in 1974, may Allah have mercy on his soul. Francois Genoud traveled to Berlin frequently during the war to see ElHusseini and visited him afterward many times in Beirut. The Grand Mufti entrusted Genoud with the management of his enormous financial affairs. Genoud was made an honorary SS member, and awarded a Gold Badge by Hitler. A close friend of many of the leaders of the Third Reich, Genoud held the copyrights on the writings of Hitler, Bormann and Goebbels, from which he derived millions of dollars in funds.205 The Nazis extracted gold from the teeth of people they executed in death camps and melted it down to sell for the war effort. Allied soldiers found bags of gold fillings from human teeth hidden by the Nazis in Germany at the end of the war. Stacks of gold bars, gold coins, silver, Passover candlesticks, paintings and other assets looted by the Nazis were hidden. Francois Genoud told the Elders: ³I was dealing in all kinds of things including currency, diamonds and gold, and my Abwehr Case Officer Dickopf206 liked dealing, too. So I pushed things his way, and he pushed things my way.´ At the end of the war, Genoud took this gold from Germany and placed it into Swiss bank accounts.

At the end of the war, Genoud represented the Swiss Red Cross in Brussels.
The money was used to finance ODESSA, which helped with the evacuation of key World War II war heroes into Morocco, Egypt, Syria and Latin America. Francois Genoud had continued contacts with ex-SS men, was prominent in the New European Order, a Nazi-front group, and in 1958, set up the Arab Commercial Bank in Geneva to manage the war chest of the Algerian National Liberation Front (FLN), whose partisans were fighting to free their country from French colonial rule. He also established Arabo-Afrika; an import-export company that distributed anti-Jewish propaganda and delivered weapons to the Algerian National Liberation Front. Several veterans of the Third Reich, including Hitler¶s bodyguard, Major General Otto Ernst Remer, smuggled the weapons to our Algerian Brothers, while other Nazis provided military instruction. Francois Genoud made investments in Islamic Africa for Hjalmar Schacht, (left) the former Nazi Reichsminister of Finance, president of the Reichsbank and a key postwar intermediary between Germans and the Elders of Islam. When Algerian independence was proclaimed in 1962, Francois Genoud became director of the Arab Peoples¶ Bank in Algiers, as did Schacht. Francois Genoud was later arrested in Algeria for transferring $15 million of Algerian National Liberation Front money to a Swiss bank. Gamal Abdel Nasser got Francois Genoud out of Algeria without a trial, and he never returned. After a 15-years of litigation in a Swiss court, the money was returned to Algeria. On February 21, 1972 a Lufthansa Boeing 747 bound for Frankfurt was ready for takeoff in Bombay when Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine hijackers took the plane hostage. Among the 188 passengers was Joseph Kennedy, 19-year-old son of assassinated Senator Robert F. Kennedy. Wadi Haddad formulated this operation. The Lufthansa operation was carried out with the assistance of Francois Genoud, who drove to Cologne carrying the letter with the ransom demand. After sending the letter to Lufthansa and to news agencies, Genoud took off for a vacation in the Belgian Ardennes. ³The amount of money demanded of Lufthansa was very high. Too low a number would have made us lose credibility. Too high a number might have made the operation fall through, especially considering how quickly the money had to be produced.´207 Francois Genoud made this public, after a 20 year statute of limitations gave him immunity from prosecution. But, none-the-less, in February 1996 the Swiss attorney general summoned Genoud to Bern to explain his role in the hijacking why had he been in contact with Carlos the Jackal since the early 1970s. Francois Genoud had ties to the family of Usama bin Laden. Much of the Bin Laden group¶s international activities took place in the Geneva offices of Saudi Investment Company, managed by Yeslam Bin Laden. Board members include Baudoin

Dunant. Baudoin Dunant represented Francois Genoud when Genoud was on trial for participation in international terrorism.208 Francois Genoud narrowly escaped a Mossad assassination attempt in October 1993 when a bomb exploded in front of the door to his home and he was aware that Zionist and Swiss circles of inquiry were closing in on him. Genoud committed suicide on May 30, 1996 shortly after Jewish leaders and Swiss banking officials announced an unprecedented agreement to set up a commission to examine secret bank and government files to search for funds deposited in Switzerland by Jews who had been exterminated by Hitler. The Jew Paul Volker was to head this investigation. Francois Genoud¶s death was a severe blow to the Nazi and Islamist Movements ± as he covered the legal expenses of Adolf Eichmann before an Israeli court in 1961 and subsidized Ayatollah Khomeini¶s prolonged exile in France when Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi governed Iran.209 The Committee of Solidarity with Arab and Middle East Political Prisoners was a group of Paris-based Shiite Muslims linked closely to Hezbollah and Iran that carried out a series of 1985 - 1986 bombings in public places in Paris that killed 13 and injured over 300. In early 1987 French Security learned from an informer that the attacks had been carried out by a group of Shiite Muslims based in an Islamic school in a Paris suburb led by Fouad Ben Ali Saleh. Information obtained by wiretaps led investigators to suspect Wahid Gordji, a translator at Iran¶s Paris Embassy, of coordinating the attacks. In June, French authorities subpoenaed Gordji who fled to the Paris Embassy leading to a sixmonth standoff in which French police surrounded the Embassy. In response, Iranian police surrounded the French Embassy in Tehran. The two countries severed diplomatic relations in July and Hezbollah took several French citizens hostage. The standoff ended in November 1987 when Gordji was briefly interviewed by French authorities before flying to Iran. Francois Genoud was a key member of the ³Friends of Wahid Gordji Committee´ which had interceded on Gordji¶s behalf and convinced the French to grant him safe passage. The French hostages in Lebanon were released shortly thereafter and full diplomatic relations were restored in June 1988.210 Francois Genoud paid for the legal defenses of the Baader-Meinhoff group211 and allocated the resources of the Al Taqwa Bank and the Nada Group to support Carlos the Jackal and then paid Verges to defend him.

Yemen.212 Carlos was arrested in August 1994 in the Sudan. He was kidnapped by French policemen and is now serving a life sentence in France. Carlos believes the price for his capture was decided by the U.S. and paid by Saudi Arabia by U.S. order. In an interview from prison Carlos has stated that Dr. Hassan al-Turabi was complicit in his arrest when, in reality, is was Sudanese President al-Bashir, struggling for dominance over al-Turabi, who had delivered Carlos to France. Usama bin Laden, who lived contemporaneously with Carlos in Khartoum, Sudan, emulated Carlos¶ United Front tactics in the formation of his International Islamic Front for Jihad Against the U.S. and Israel in 1998. After the arrest of Carlos, the Jackal¶s United Front withered away and the Yemeni and other jihadi trained by them gravitated to al-Qaeda. Carlos married Isabelle Coutant-Peyre, his 48-year-old lawyer in a Muslim ceremony in a glass-walled prison room containing a few sticks of furniture covered in graffiti. There was a solitary witness and they were watched over by guards. Carlos recited verses from the Qu¶ran, they signed a sheet of paper, exchanged rings and kissed.213 After the civil ceremony, conjugal visits might be possible.214 Isabelle Coutant-Peyre, who has known Jacques Verges since 1981 and worked with him for decades, represented Mohamed Chalabi, an Algerian Islamist and leader of the Armed Islamic Group imprisoned by France then deported to Algeria where he faced an even worse fate than that of Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman. Mrs. Coutant-Peyre represented Zacarias Moussaoui who is a French citizen. Roger Garaudy¶s publication A Contre-Nuit includes articles by Isabelle Coutant-Peyre, so it is unlikely Isabelle is a big fan of the Jews. In many respects she is the French equivalent to Lynne Stewart. HORST MAHLER In the 1970¶s Horst Mahler was a Marxist urban guerrilla and lawyer for the Red Army Faction in Germany. Now he represents the National Democratic Party, a rightwing grouping.215 Although many German rightwingers have a problem with immigration, foreign workers and asylum seekers Mahler stated: ³For decades, the Jihad has been the agenda of the Islamic world against the Western value system. The Anglo-American and European employees of the global players, dispersed throughout the world are, as Usama bin Laden proclaimed a long while ago, military targets. Only a few need be liquidated in this manner; the survivors will run off like hares into their respective home countries, where they belong.´ In October 2002, Mahler and his party¶s leader, Udo Voigt, attended an event sponsored by Hizb ut-Tahrir, an Islamist group with 27,000 members in Germany that was recently banned here for extremism and for spreading anti-Semitic propaganda in universities. On April 10, 2003 German police raided some 80 buildings

throughout the country linked to Hizb ut-Tahrir but no arrests were made. Hizb ut-Tahrir Brother Nizar al-Saqeb was expelled from Germany due to his connection with September 11th Raid planner Ramzi bin al-Shibh.216 Mahler's license to practice as a lawyer was withdrawn in 2004 and in January, 2005 he was sentenced to nine months in prison for inciting racial hatred. He was chosen by Ernst Zündel to help the defense in his 2005 trial for inciting racial hatred. In England the East London Youth Forum is dominated by Hizb ut-Tahrir. An Internet site listing Muslim events in Britain carried a notice that listed the youth forum and Hizb ut-Tahrir, along with a British cola company, as the main supporters of a charity dinner. Hizb ut-Tahrir urges Muslims NOT to take part in the British political system.217 PROTOCOL 12. THE HIDDEN AGENDA Having established approximately the modus agendi to achieve our ends, we will occupy ourselves with the details of creating the environment conducive to completing the Islamic revolution within the borders of the United States by moving the machinery of State in a direction favorable to achieving our goals. Every one of our efforts must have an underlying ulterior motivation cloaked in the robes of religious or political freedom. THE PATRIOT GAME Al-Qaeda spokesman Suleiman Abu Gheith, a banned Kuwaiti Imam removed the cloak for a moment, and said that ³the Republican Party has every reason to be worried´218 and was justified in having sponsored the Patriot Act in terms of survival and self-preservation, because Al-Qaeda and its affiliates are planning the death of up to four million Americans, including one million children, through the use of chemical and biological weapons. He explained, ³Carrying out terrorism against the oppressors is one of the tenets of our religion.´219 Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman agreed and stated in a speech given prior to May 2, 1994: ³Why do we fear the word terrorist? If the terrorist is the person who defends his right, so we are terrorists. And if the terrorist is the one who struggles for the sake of God, then we are terrorists. We... have been ordered with terrorism because we must prepare what power we can to terrorize the enemy of God and yours. The Qu¶ran mentioned the word to strike terror, therefore we don't fear to be described with terrorism! They may say he is a terrorist, he uses violence, he uses force. Let them say that. We are ordered to prepare whatever we can of power to terrorize the enemies of Islam.´ We are terrorists, but not in the pejorative sense as Westerners use the word. WE OPPOSE THE PATRIOT ACT ON ³CIVIL LIBERTIES´ GROUNDS

The Patriot Act established the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System, a system that matches foreign visitors fingerprints against databases of jihadi and their supporters. The INS has taken jihadi into custody as they tried to enter the United States after their fingerprints matched those lifted by U.S. military officials from documents found in caves in Afghanistan! Now U.S. immigration officials fingerprint and photograph all visitors to America who enter from suspect countries.220 On March 1, 2003 the INS was disbanded and the Department of Homeland Security (D.H.S.) assumed its functions. Tom Ridge, the square-headed political appointee headed the D.H.S., despite his lack of experience until the weasel-faced Jew, Michael Chertoff replaced him. The last time the INS changed places within the American Federal Bureaucracy was in 1940, when the other ³Axis of Evil´ caused it to become part of the Justice Department. The D.H.S. will use facial recognition and fingerprint scanning technologies as the federal standard for identity documents to be issued to foreigners, however, they cannot issue foreign passports that these identities are based on, nor can they prevent us from stealing blank passports as we have done in Russia, Mexico and Saudi Arabia.221 There are Central American plastic surgery mills, now used by drug lords, that can alter the loops and whorls on a Brother¶s fingertips. The Domestic Security Enhancement Act of 2003 attempted to make all Americans into deportable aliens: Under 8 U.S.C. §148 1, an American can lose his citizenship by voluntarily, and with the intent to relinquish nationality, taking any of a number of actions, including (1) obtaining Nationality in a foreign state; (2) taking an oath of allegiance to a foreign state; and, most importantly (3) serving in the armed forces of a foreign state that is engaged in hostilities against the United States. The current expatriation statute does not, however, provide for the loss of citizenship in cases where an American serves in a hostile foreign so-called terrorist organization. It thus fails to take account of the myriad ways in which, in the modern world, war can be waged against the United States. ³This provision would amend 8 U-S.C. 1481 to make clear that, just as an American can relinquish his citizenship by serving in a hostile foreign army, so can he relinquish his citizenship by serving in a hostile terrorist organization. Specifically, an American could be expatriated if with the intent to relinquish his nationality, he becomes a member of, or provides material support to, a group that the United States has designated as a terrorist organization if that group is engaged in hostilities against the United States. Praise God, this never became law.

AMERICAN JUSTICE vs. SHARIAH LAW The Qu¶ran states emphatically: ³Whoever chooses to follow the right path, follows it but for his own good; and whoever goes astray, goes but astray to his own hurt; and no bearer of burdens shall be made to bear another¶s burden.´222 The kuffar condemn our justice system as antiquated and inhumane, they should look at their own before they throw the first stone! Siddig Ali Siddig¶s sentence was symptomatic of American jurisprudence, wherein, for example, the kingpin of a narcotics distribution cartel ³rats down´ on his subordinates, many of whom played insignificant roles in his operation, sends them to prison, then does a very short sentence or none at all.223 Just as Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman possessed no explosives or written plans to bomb New York City, no money or narcotics is needed in drug cases termed ³a dry conspiracy.´ What transpires is that the FBI or local police who have a suspect in their custody call up someone and ask them if they want to help them sell some drugs they have recently obtained. The call is recorded, and if the person who is being called agrees to help, they are arrested and charged with conspiracy, a far more serious charge than sale or possession of narcotics. In other cases the FBI asks the suspect to name people he had sold drugs to in the past, and if they can come up with any sort of corroboration ± another informant ± a telephone record ± an apartment lease, a travel record, the person will be arrested, on the word of the informant, who often has a long criminal record. The Dry Conspiracy statutes have been used against the Black Muslim Brothers in Liberty City, Miami, Florida, who were arrested in 2006 for simply talking Jihad. Nothing transpired and no weapons, IEDs or money were seized. This is why Islamic law forbids giving and accepting bribes, taking false oath, betrayal of trust, listening (to) people¶s private conversations and judging unjustly. Our system has no provisions for rewarding those who testify against their friends, mother, father or brother. Shari'ah law metes out harsh justice, but justice that is commensurate with one¶s involvement in a crime. We do not object to mandatory sentences, for our sentences too are mandatory, and the judges must impose them, unless there are highly extenuating circumstances. But Islamists object to guilty parties avoiding the just sentence by making others punished for their shirks.224 Many in America who are on the receiving end of the judicial system convert to Islam while in prison or jail and will join us in our struggle when they, with the help of Allah [subhanahu wa ta¶ala], are released. America will turn out an army of soldiers of Islam who will be more than happy to destroy the judges, prosecutors and corrupt defense attorneys, a disproportionate number of whom are JEWS! THE ³DIRTY´ INFORMANT EXCUSE
222. The Holy Qu¶ran 17:15 223 . In July 1998 a three-judge panel of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that testimony from a witness who had been offered a lower sentence in exchange for assistance in the prosecution of a co-defendant violated the federal bribery statute and should not be admitted. The defendant argued, and the judges agreed, that such testimony was forbidden since the bribery statute prohibits giving anything ³of value´ to a witness in exchange for testimony. Emad Salem¶s tapes revealed that some of the money sought by him for informing was going to be put up by ³private individuals,´ a euphemism for rich Jews. 224. Sins.
In 1995, in the midst of the apparent rise of Islamism, the CIA adopted guidelines requiring Case Officers to get approval from higher CIA officials before recruiting ³dirty´ informants, people who had been involved in human rights abuses or criminal or terrorist activity. The CIA claimed this was why it was unable to infiltrate our tightly knit organization. But we wonder how many informants were disqualified because of their past deeds? Why would CIA officials refuse to let their Case Officers use ³dirty´ informants in so-called terrorist cases when the FBI did so routinely in drug and Organized Crime cases? Were heroin or marijuana dealers more evil than so called terrorists in the eyes of America? GREGORY SCARPA SR. Gregory Scarpa, Sr. the father of the FBI spy Gregory Scarpa, Jr., committed numerous murders while he was an FBI informant. Gregory Scarpa, Sr. could not have been dirtier yet the FBI used him for decades. Scarpa Sr. was born in Brooklyn on May 28, 1928. His older brother, Salvatore, who died in a shooting in 1987 recruited him into the Colombo family (then called the Profaci family). In the early 1950¶s, Scarpa married Connie Forrest; they had one daughter and three sons, including Gregory, Jr. The FBI first officially opened Scarpa as an informant on March 20, 1962, after agents seized him outside New York State for an armed robbery. At this time FBI Agent Anthony Villano managed Scarpa, since he was in charge of monitoring the activities of the Colombo Crime Family. In the early 1960¶s Villano sent Scrapa Sr. to Mississippi to threaten one of the killers of civil rights activists. The killer led the FBI to the buried bodies of the civil-rights workers Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman, and James Chaney, slain in Philadelphia, Mississippi, in 1964. During Scarpa¶s final days in prison, his AIDS dementia took hold, and he told one visitor how, after kidnapping a Mississippi man for the FBI, ³he placed a gun in the guy¶s mouth, and started cutting his dick off with a razor´ and demanded that the man tell him the location of ³three kids that were missing.´ He also spoke about a secret assignment in Costa Rica for the United States government in the sixties that involved murder. When the FBI asked Scarpa¶s wife Linda Schiro if Scarpa ever said that he worked for the CIA she denied any knowledge of this. On January 10, 1966, the day after Vernon Dahmer, a black farmer and merchant in Forrest County, Mississippi, agreed to make his grocery store available as a place for blacks to pay poll tax, Klansmen set his house on fire, fatally searing his lungs and badly burning his ten-year-old daughter. On January 21, 1966 the Jackson, Mississippi, office of the FBI called the New York office and, as recorded in an internal memo, requested the use of informant NY-3461-Gregory Scarpa - for a special assignment. One of the immediate suspects in the Dahmer homicide was Klansman Lawrence Byrd, the owner of Byrd¶s Radio & TV Service in Laurel, Mississippi. As Byrd was about to close his shop, Scarpa and an FBI agent agreed to buy a television from Byrd and asked him to help carry it to a car parked outside. Byrd was pistol-whipped, shoved into the back seat, forced to lie down, and driven to Camp Shelby, a military base built on
rural Mississippi swampland. There, Scarpa beat a confession out of him. W. O. (Chet) Dillard, the local district attorney, who visited Byrd in the hospital immediately after the kidnapping was convinced by Dillard not to investigate the matter, and in early March 1966 he signed a twenty-two-page confession prepared by the FBI, in which he inculpated himself and seven other Klansmen. He got ten years for arson. In 1973 Villano became convinced that the mob had penetrated the FBI and reported this to his superiors.225 For his efforts he was transferred to the Philadelphia Field Office. Villano had ratted-out his fellow FBI Agent Joseph Stabile who, in 1978 became the first FBI Agent to be indicted for a crime while on active duty ± taking a bribe from an organized crime figure. This affair became known as The Sicilian Feud since both men were Sicilian. Villano was the author of Brick Agent, an expose of the FBI¶s often illegal methodology involving Black Bag Jobs and iIlegal Wiretaps. Villano claimed that he never ³flaked anyone´ ± that is planted evidence on a suspect nor did he ever perjure himself in court ± otherwise he broke every rule in the book. In the 1970s Scarpa was transferred to Supervising Special Agent Lindley DeVecchio. In 1976, as a young FBI agent, DeVecchio sold old handguns to undercover officers, who later sought to charge him with a felony. The gun case began in early 1976 when DeVecchio traveled from New York to King of Prussia, Pennsylvania to sell a Nazi-era Luger at the Valley Forge Gun Show. He claimed he was looking to sell the weapons ''for the benefit of the widow'' to whom they belonged. Without a license, he moved through the stalls of the firearms bazaar, and was soon approached by Michael Flax, an undercover agent with the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Flax's job was to troll the show in plainclothes looking for such illicit deals. That year alone, he said, several people he caught similarly selling guns without paperwork went to prison. ''I was usually like, 'Gee I'd like to get this gun,' he said in an interview from San Diego. ''Do we have to go through all the paperwork?'' Flax recalled that he bought the Luger in a parking lot outside the show. Over several weeks he pursued an investigation of DeVecchio in which a second agent secretly recorded the FBI man selling another gun. He said that DeVecchio, at one point, gave him a phone number at which he might be reached. It was, he said, an office of the New York FBI. A few weeks later, Flax brought the case to Daniel M. Clements, then a young federal prosecutor in Baltimore. ''Flax comes to me saying, 'You're not going to believe this,' Clements said last week. 'I have an FBI agent selling guns illegally.' A few months later Clements told the FBI as a courtesy that he was investigating one of its agents. A few weeks passed with discussions back and forth with FBI officials in Maryland and in Washington. ''The next person I heard from was Rudolph Giuliani.'' Giuliani was an aide to Harold Tyler, the deputy attorney general, who reviewed such cases. Giuliani had joined his staff in 1975 after serving in the United States attorney's office in Manhattan. Over several weeks Giuliani asked him to write a pair of memoranda on the case in which he noted that DeVecchio had sold the guns without the proper paperwork, a crime, Clements said, for which he thought there was sufficient evidence to prosecute. Clements said he attended a pair of
meetings about the case with Giuliani, including one in Giuliani's office also attended by Tyler and Jervis Finney, the United States attorney in Maryland who was then Clements's boss. Had he been convicted, the case might have led to prison or his dismissal as an agent. But DeVecchio, who said he acted legally and to benefit a widow, was neither jailed nor fired. Officials at the highest levels of the Justice Department ultimately discarded the case against him without an indictment. ''Rudy expressed no other reason not to prosecute the guy except the guy was a cop, and he didn't want to embarrass the bureau.'' In 1983, a former C.I.A. agent, Edwin Wilson, in prison awaiting trial for illegally shipping weapons to Libya, was scouting for someone he could hire to murder two federal prosecutors and several potential witnesses. A fellow-inmate tipped off the authorities and then agreed to present DeVecchio to Wilson, in a visitors¶ room, as DeAngelo, the hit man. Days later, Wilson arranged for his son Erik to pay DeVecchio - unwittingly, it appeared-close to ten thousand dollars in a hotel men¶s room. Wilson was convicted of attempted murder. Scarpa separated from his wife around 1973 and had had another son with his mistress Linda Schiro. Meanwhile, though he continued to live with Schiro, and had never divorced Forrest, he married Lili Dajani, a Palestinian beauty queen, in 1975, in Las Vegas. Around 1978, Schiro began seeing a delivery boy named Larry Mazza; Scarpa permitted their love affair to continue, and, in the meantime, he inducted Mazza into his crew. The relationship between DeVecchio and Scarpa was allegedly broken off until DeVecchio succeeded in renewing Scarpa's informant status in December 1980. DeVecchio acted as Scarpa's sole FBI handler from that time until Scarpa was finally terminated as an FBI informant after the Colombo Wars were over in 1992, despite an FBI protocol which required informants to be handled by two agents at a time. Acting as a renagade lone wolf DeVecchio, who helped cover up al-Qaeda activities for his own reasons when he dealt with Gregory Scarpa Jr., conducted a one agent campaign to destroy organized crime in New York City by managing information in a fashion wherein Mafioso were bumping each other off like flies swatted by a donkey¶s tail, saving taxpayers the expense of trial and incarceration. As a "top echelon" informant, Scarpa initially provided DeVecchio with information pertaining to organizational activity and personnel movements within the Colombo Family. After the Colombo Wars commenced in late 1991, he provided detailed reports of perpetrators and strategic planning of the opposing factions. Even before the Colombo war started, Scarpa had murdered at least eight people. One of his victims was a Manhattan doctor named Eli Sckolnick. A crooked mob attorney named Light decided to rat out Judge Titone as being on the mafia¶s pad. Mr. Light became an informant for the President's Commission soon after his sentencing by Federal District Judge Eugene H. Nickerson in Brooklyn. Dr. Eliezer Shkolnik, an abortion specialist who, in the early 1970's, was medical director of the Central Women's Center at 331 East 29th Street. In 1974 state and city officials accused Dr. Shkolnik of gross ineptitude at the clinic and, after a hearing, the State
Board of Regents revoked his medical license on Aug. 10, 1976. Stanley M. Meyer, a partner of Mr. Light in the Brooklyn law firm of Preminger, Meyer & Light, represented Dr. Shkolnik, on appeal. On Aug. 19, 1976, Justice Titone, then sitting on the Appellate Division for the Second Department, in Brooklyn, signed an order staying the revocation and requiring the Board of Regents to show cause within three weeks why the revocation should be sustained. The matter was then routinely referred to the Appellate Division in Albany, which upheld the revocation. Light, according to law-enforcement authorities, has said that Justice Titone received a cash bribe for issuing the stay order. The sources said Mr. Light had indicated that Mr. Meyer was present when the money was paid. In the late seventies, Shkolnik transferred title to a lucrative abortion clinic to a nurse who was on intimate terms with Scarpa. Scarpa put a stop to Sckolnick¶s demands for money from the clinic by obtaining his address in Forest Hills and killing him. Dr. Shkolnik was shot to death on December 3, 1980, in the lobby of his apartment house at 67-76 Booth Street in Forest Hills, Queens.226 On September 25, 1984, Mary Bari, a young woman who was thought to know the whereabouts of a Colombo fugitive, was shot and killed in a Brooklyn social club by Scarpa and other members of the Colombo crime family. The indictment charges DeVecchio told Scarpa that Bari had been speaking to federal authorities and should be taken care of. DeVecchio reciprocated by passing along unauthorized information to Scarpa. For example, evidence was presented indicating that DeVecchio warned Scarpa of his pending arrest on federal credit card fraud charges and may have intervened with the sentencing judge to request lenient treatment. There also was suspicion that in 1987 DeVecchio leaked to Scarpa information that the Wimpy Boys Social Club, a favorite Colombo gathering place, was subject to court-ordered electronic surveillance; that he tipped off Scarpa to the planned DEA arrest of his son, Gregory Scarpa Jr., and others in connection with the criminal activity at the social club; and that, as a result of the warning, Gregory Scarpa, Jr. became a fugitive. On March 3, 1992, Scarpa was closed as an informant after the ASAC of the Criminal Division of the New York FBI Division, Donald North, "found credible allegations that Scarpa was involved in planning violent criminal activity." In informal conversations with North, DeVecchio was allegedly "adamant" that Scarpa was not involved in violent activity. In early April 1992, DeVecchio initiated the process of having Scarpa re-opened, and the FBI granted authority to re-open Scarpa on April 8, 1992, pending completion of a suitability inquiry. On April 22, 1992, DeVecchio notified FBI Headquarters that such an inquiry had been conducted and that Scarpa was deemed suitable. On August 31, 1992, the Kings County District Attorney¶s Office arrested Scarpa, Sr. for criminal possession of a weapon. The FBI arrested Scarpa, Sr. after his
arraignment on the Kings County case. A federal indictment charged Scarpa with the commission of three murders, among other crimes, was handed down. Scarpa was released on bail under strict house confinement as one of the conditions of release because of failing health. The United States Attorney¶s Office for the Eastern District of New York opposed his pre-trial release. Over the government¶s objection however Magistrate Judge John L. Caden released Scarpa, Sr. on home detention with the stipulation that Scarpa wear an electronic anklet that would alert police if he left the house. The Government appealed Magistrate Judge Caden¶s decision to Judge I. Leo Glaser. After hearing the government¶s objections, Judge Glasser upheld Magistrate Judge Caden¶s decision«227 On December 29, 1992, when Scarpa¶s son by Linda Schiro, Joseph, got into a dispute over a drug transaction Scarpa rushed out of the house armed, went around the block, and got into a gun battle with two Bay Ridge drug dealers, one of whom he is believed to have killed. Scarpa¶s left eye was shot out. Joseph was killed in a drugrelated shooting. Scarpa¶s house arrest was revoked. It was agreed that he would be sent to Rikers Island, a prison known for its superior AIDS facility, to serve a year on his gun charge. On May 6, 1993, he appeared before federal Judge Jack B. Weinstein to plead guilty to three murders and conspiracy to murder several others. Weinstein sentenced Scarpa to ten years in prison in December 1993 - a life sentence because Scarpa, Sr. was dying of AIDS he had contracted from a blood transfusion. ³At no time during the prosecution of Scarpa, Sr., which effectively insured that he died in jail, did he defend his actions on the grounds that he was authorized by the FBI to engage in criminal activity.´228 On June 8, 1994, Scarpa died, of complications from aids, at the Federal Medical Center in Rochester, Minnesota.229 During the summer of 1992, Special Agent Christopher Favo, who was working with DeVecchio during the Colombo investigation, became strongly suspicious of DeVecchio. Believing that DeVecchio was engaged in misconduct Favo began to withhold information from DeVecchio pertaining to Scarpa. Other subordinates of DeVecchio's suspected that Scarpa was a murderer, but none of them reported their suspicions about Scarpa or DeVecchio to superiors or to the United States Attorney despite the fact that the Informant Guidelines required agents to report any knowledge of an informant committing violent crimes. In January 1994, Favo and other agents approached ASAC North to report their concerns about DeVecchio's relationship with Scarpa. North immediately submitted a report to the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR). OPR determined that DeVecchio was appropriately a subject of investigation.

In June 1995, a jury acquitted seven reputed associates of the Orena wing of the Colombo family (Victor Orena, Jr., John Orena, Thomas Petrizzo, et al.) of conspiring to murder members of the rival Persico faction of the family. Scarpa's status as an FBI informant became a pivotal issue during the trial. Fellow FBI agents testified that they had become suspicious of DeVecchio and were particularly concerned that he had fed confidential information to Scarpa that helped him to evade arrest. In September 1996 the Public Integrity Section of the Justice Department determined that prosecution of DeVecchio was not warranted, and the OPR investigation was closed. The Government claimed that the FBI¶s Office of Professional Responsibility found no conclusive evidence that DeVecchio leaked information about any of the murder victims in the indictment of Scarpa, Jr. to Scarpa, Sr. ± however Brooklyn Assistant U.S. Attorney Valerie Caproni said that ³they did not believe they had proof [of a crime] beyond a reasonable doubt.´ DeVecchio resigned shortly after the Office of Professional Responsibility released its finding. DeVecchio retired from the FBI in October 1996. The United States Attorney stated: ³The FBI never authorized Scarpa, Sr. to engage in any violent activity. Moreover Scarpa, Sr. was prosecuted for his crimes.´ Scarpa's relationship with the FBI generated post-trial motions in another case following the conviction of LCN defendants on murder and conspiracy to murder charges. In that case, in March 1997, the trial judge granted a motion for a new trial to Anthony Russo, Joseph Russo, and Joseph Monteleone, finding that the Government had improperly failed to disclose evidence bearing on Scarpa's credibility. On February 19, 1997, saying that prosecutors withheld evidence that could have swayed the jury, Charles P. Sifton of Federal District Court in Brooklyn threw out the murder convictions of three men involved in the infamous internal Colombo crime family war from 1991 to 1993 in which 10 people were killed and granted new trials to Joseph Russo, who was the acting underboss of the family, and to Anthony Russo and Joseph Monteleone. Judge Sifton strongly criticized the relationship between Scarpa and DeVecchio, who used Mr. Scarpa as an informant. ''Scarpa emerges as sinister and violent and at the same time manipulative and deceptive with everyone, including DeVecchio, who emerges as arrogant, stupid or easily manipulated but, at the same time, caught up in the complex and difficult task of trying to make the best use of Scarpa's information to bring the war to a close.''- the judge wrote. The Court of Appeals reversed that portion of the district court's order that granted a new trial, rejecting the trial court's conclusion that evidence that Scarpa lied to the FBI about his involvement in certain other murders gave rise to an inference that he lied to his co-conspirators about the murders in question. March 11, 1997 Jack B. Weinstein of Federal District Court in Brooklyn refused yesterday to throw out the murder convictions of two Mafia figures whose lawyers had contended that prosecutors had withheld vital information about an F.B.I. agent's tangled relationship with an informer. But the judge upheld the convictions, saying that the defendants were ''proven by strong evidence to be murderous criminals.'
During the appeal of Gregory Scarpa, Jr.¶s conviction defense attorney Lawrence Silverman wrote: By letter dated October 20, 1997, Assistant United States Attorney Corcella advised defendants of the existence of two reports prepared in connection with the investigation of the murder of Joseph DeDomenico. In one, a µDD-5¶,230 a confidential source told New York City Police Detectives that, according to DeDomenico, Robert µBucky¶ DeLeonardi (the subject of Racketeering Act Two in Scarpa, Jr.¶s indictment) was killed because he was an informant, and that a µFed¶ had gotten word of this back to Scarpa, Sr. (Ironically, the source now denies having made this statement.) The second - a µrequest for exceptional clearance¶ reports Scarpa, Sr.'s confession to the FBI that he killed DeDomenico. DeDomenico, a Colombo soldier who was considered a threat had been using drugs, committing crimes without involving Scarpa and talking about becoming a Bornagain Christian. Scarpa and other Colombo associates killed DeDomenico, 45, on September 17, 1987. The Government¶s informant Scarpa, Sr. is dead and his FBI handler, Supervising Special Agent Lindley DeVecchio is pleading the Fifth. As we stated in our initial memorandum, we would want to ask Agent DeVecchio what he knew about each of the murders charged as predicates and whether he provided any information to Scarpa, Sr. regarding the victim prior to the murder; if DeVecchio pleads the Fifth (as he has recently done in a hearing before Judge Weinstein), the defense ought to have the benefit of an adverse inference against the Government. The evidence that there were other leaks, and that Scarpa, Sr. ordered numerous killings because the victim was going to co-operate or was cooperating with law enforcement authorities provides a good faith basis for our making such an inquiry of Agent DeVecchio regarding the particular homicide victims identified here. [Scarpa, Jr.¶s codefendant] Carmine Sessa confessed to a number of homicides. Sessa told us he was involved in thirteen murders and Scarpa, Sr. was involved in seven or eight of those homicides. At least two or three of the killings were done because Scarpa, Sr. had told Sessa that the victim was going to cooperate or was co-operating with law enforcement authorities. Any adverse inference that DeVecchio did leak information to Scarpa, Sr. that the victims identified in the indictment might co-operate with the Government would provide powerful circumstantial evidence of Scarpa, Sr.'s motive to kill these individuals. Fearful that they might reveal information to the FBI that contradicted what he was feeding them, or fearful that the protection he was enjoying from the FBI would be in
jeopardy, Scarpa, Sr. had a strong motive to stifle any such cooperation.231 «Scarpa, Sr. wasn¶t hired by the FBI and told to stop what he was doing for it is plain that he would have been of no use to the FBI the moment he stopped. Rather, he was paid to provide information that he could only obtain by continuing his involvement in the criminal affairs of the Colombo [Crime] Family. This was not the mere passive receipt of information by the FBI from a person hoping he might not be prosecuted. There was a determination made early on by the FBI that, to the extent the FBI had any control, this informant was never going to be prosecuted and never going to be called as a witness. Moreover, by leaking information to Scarpa, Sr. (about who was likely to co-operate against him, who was targeted for arrest, where his µbusiness¶ customers resided), and by intervening on his behalf to obtain the extraordinary lenient sentence of probation in a multimillion dollar credit card fraud case, Agent DeVecchio actively, µaffirmatively¶ promoted and encouraged Scarpa, Sr.¶s continuing involvement in criminal activities. Indeed, the effort to insure Scarpa, Sr.¶s continuing ability to participate in the criminal affairs of the Colombo Family was so extraordinary that the FBI even took steps to obtain Scarpa, Sr.¶s release after he was arrested for murder in August 1992. That Scarpa, Sr. was not prosecuted for loan sharking, gambling or narcotics - not even as a probation violation - is consistent with authorization and further circumstantial evidence of it.232 THE FATE OF ³DIRTY LINDLEY´ DEVECCHIO By Allah never name a Catholic Italian with a Protestant name like ³Lindley´ least he meet the same fate as Lindley DeVecchio who was so confused about his religious identity he once had a gangster killed for flirting with Fundamentalist Christianity ± a conversion that would have caused the mobster to spill his guts to the FBI. For despite his one-man clean-up New York City campaign DeVecchio was punished, not rewarded. In February 2005 a member of the American House Judiciary Committee, William Delahunt was investigating allegations against FBI Agents involved in Organized Crime cases and came across this one-man death squad. On March 30, 2006 DeVecchio appeared in State Supreme Court in Brooklyn charged with three counts of gangland murder along with John Sinagra and Craig Sobel. Communist Judge Gustav Reichbach set his bail at one million dollars that was promptly paid by former FBI Agents. DeVecchio is claiming he is immune from State prosecution because he acted in the course of his federal duties. James Kallstrom and other supporters from the federal law enforcement community have begun raising money for DeVecchio's defense. Linda Schiro ratted him out!

Victor Orena and Pasquale Amato had fingered DeVecchio. In two separate federal trials in 1992 and 1993, juries found Victor J. Orena, the acting boss of the Colombo Family, and Pasquale Amato guilty of racketeering, conspiracy, and firearms charges. The events leading to the convictions of Orena and Amato stemmed from the Colombo Wars, a power struggle between two Colombo factions, the Persicos and the Orenas that lasted from the fall of 1991 through the spring of 1992. At Orena's trial, DeVecchio, who headed the Colombo LCN squad in the FBI's New York Field Office, testified as an expert witness about the nature and structure of organized crime. Both defendants were sentenced to life in prison, and the Second Circuit affirmed both convictions and sentences. After learning that Scarpa was a long-time FBI informant, Orena and Amato contended that it was not they, but DeVecchio, who conspired with Scarpa to instigate the Mafia war and caused the killing of their partner and loan shark, Thomas Ocera, one of the murders for which Orena and Amato were convicted. Years after their convictions and following exhaustion of all appeals, Orena and Amato filed motions for dismissal of their indictments or for new trials alleging a violation of the government's disclosure obligations under Brady v. Maryland. Their motions were based upon DeVecchio's "questionable ethics and judgments" as revealed in proceedings in another case in which the defendants included Orena's sons Victor Jr. and John and Thomas Petrizzo, a contractor who helped build many skyscrapers in the city. The defense argued that the murders were helped by Scarpa's relationship with DeVecchio. Two FBI agents, Jeffrey W. Tomlinson and George Leadbetter 2d, who worked under DeVecchio, gave testimony about that. They said they came to suspect that DeVecchio had disclosed confidential information that had helped Scarpa evade arrest. The defendants were aquitted of all counts. Amato and Orena's lawyers also tried to overturn Amato and Orena's life sentence in prison on racketeering and murder charges by asserting that DeVecchio fomented an internal war in the Colombo crime family in the early 1990's and that he framed Orena by funneling confidential F.B.I. information to a rival Colombo gangster, Gregory Scarpa. At a hearing in May 1995 on Orena¶s appeal for a new trial, DeVecchio cited his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination rather than testify about his relationship with Scarpa, and it was suggested that he be granted immunity and forced to choose between testifying and going to jail. When he testified he said, ''I did not give him investigative information. Have I ever given him investigative information?'' Mr. DeVecchio continued rhetorically. ''Absolutely not. I have never given him any investigative information that would help him in any way.'' On June 19, 1995 the last day of testimony, a third FBI agent, Christopher Favo, recounted a day in May 1992 when, he said, DeVecchio slapped his desk at the news that two Orena men had been killed. ³And you wrote down that he got excited about it, didn't he?" Mr. LaRossa asked. ³Yes,´ Mr. Favo responded. ³You said that he said to you, 'We're going to win this thing,' right? Meaning the war, right?" "Yes." "Meaning the Persico side, right?" "Yes."233
The trial court denied the post-trial motions,234 however, the court closely examined the relationship between DeVecchio and Scarpa, who rose to the position of a "capo" or captain in the Colombo family. In its ruling on Orena's and Amato's motions for dismissal of their indictments or new trials, the district court held that (1) the defendants either knew or should have known that a member of the organized crime family to which they belonged had acted as an informant, so the government's failure to disclose that fact did not warrant a new trial; (2) evidence that a government agent had leaked information to an informant and that a second government agent had concerns regarding the relationship between the first agent and the informant was not material to the Government's charges, so the Government's failure to disclose did not warrant relief under Brady and (3) newly discovered evidence did not warrant a new trial.235 Angela Clemente who obtained the FBI files from Ramzi Yousef detailing the Brother¶s mistrust in Scarpa Jr. w a s s t r a n g l e d a n d b e a t e n s e n s e l e s s i n a B r o o k l y n s h o p p i n g c e n t e r p a r k i n g l o t o n J u n e 1 6 , 2 0 0 6 . ExFBI agents might have orchestrated the attack. Clemente told investigators, her assailant asked, "Are you going to keep investigating DeVecchio?" When she said, "Yes," the man began punching, kicking and choking her until she lost consciousness.236 Clemente had been hired by the family of a casualty of ³Dirty Lindley´ DeVecchio¶s one-man war on organized crime. In this role, Lindley resembled the United States and Israel during the Iraq-Iran war. He hoped for maximum casualties on both sides. Clemente worked for Stephen Dresch who died of cancer on August 6, 2006 at his home in Hancock, Michigan.237 Shari'ah will provide the entire world with prosecutions in all matters concerning all things far better than Rudi Giuliani. We must make Shari'ah the law of every land, replacing the fallible and conceited laws of man. For Allah [subhanahu wa ta¶ala] has written: ³To each among you, we have prescribed a law and a clear way.´238 In our hearts we know that Shari'ah differs fundamentally from Western Law: It is based on Revelation, and being of a divine origin, it is virtually immutable and infallible, and finally it includes, besides public and private laws, even international relationships. It must be imposed on all unbelievers, or else. USING FREEDOM OF RELIGION TO END FREEDOM OF RELIGION

Qu¶ran 5:48
American¶s belief in freedom of religion will be used to help destroy that very freedom, for when we come to power there will be no prophet save Muhamed, and no God save Allah, may his blessings be upon us! We do not readily admit to this, however, when Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman was sentenced he said: The duty is that we should practice the principles of Islam, whether the prosecutor likes it - the prosecutor likes to Americanize Islam and we refuse to see Islam being Americanized. But what should be done is America should become Muslim, and the prosecutor wants that we become subservient to America, or else we have jail for life. And we say the guard of the jail is better for my heart than what you are calling me to do. Welcome to jail for life, as long as there is God¶s grace in it. The prosecutor wants for us to worship America and to worship the American power, and we say America will go and will wither, and this civilization will be destroyed, and everything in existence will go. Nothing will remain except God¶s faith. The time of sleep is over. Rise in God as one man. And don¶t take the Christians and the Jews as your friends. The Qu¶ran says if you obey them, they will send you back as disbelievers. Be just witnesses of God and victors with God. Say the truth even if it is bitter, and don¶t be afraid of people¶s criticisms. And be peaceful, don¶t cry for me if I am put in jail for life before I am killed.´ Brother Ajaj was less candid because he was in the midst of being sentenced when he stated: Some Brothers chose to migrate to other countries, such as the U.S., where the can spread the message of Islam freely and in the same time support their Brothers and sisters who are continuing their efforts to apply God¶s rules in the Islamic countries. Those who come to the U.S. were able to live and follow the teachings of their religion freely, spreading those teachings also freely, until Islam became the fastest growing religion in the U.S. as it is in the whole world, all praise be to God first, and to the tolerant, open society here. We are not asking to apply Islamic law here in the U.S. where Muslims are less than seven million. Devout Muslims are not asking to try to test Qur¶anic rules to see if it works for this society or not. Sultaana Freeman (Sandra Keller a former utilities-company engineer and Pentecostal churchgoer from Illinois who converted to Islam in 1997) refused to replace her driver¶s license photograph with one that showed her face. She said doing so would violate her religious freedom, because she wears a niqab.239 Sultaana came to Islam after pleading guilty to one count of felony assault. It was alleged that she had beaten her foster child. She invoked Shari'ah to prevent investigators from looking under the children's clothing,
239. A type of veil that covers all but a woman¶s eyes
where one daughter had a broken arm. Both children were bruised. Many American states foolishly permit people to obtain driver licenses without photographs for ³religious reasons.´ Sultaana Freeman offered to provide fingerprints, DNA or other information that could be used to verify her identity, but the police cannot verify and identity in this fashion because they are in the field and lack access to sophisticated equipment that is not yet portable.240 Florida Circuit Judge Janet C. Thorpe ruled that the state had to protect the public from terrorism, and that Freeman had to show her face on the license. Thorpe said Sultaana Freeman's right to free exercise of religion would not be infringed, an outright lie. Sultaana Freeman had a hidden agenda. If there is no picture on the license it can be used by others to transport the weapons we will use to destroy America. Freeman's husband Mark was caught with fake IDs bearing his photograph and other people's names. When asked about that, Freeman said that his religious practices were his business and no one else¶s. Illinois Police found the fake ID's after they arrested Freeman for firing a gun while he was wearing his Muslim garments. A Florida Court of Appeals ruled that the Sister must remove her hijab if she wanted to possess a Florida driver¶s license. This is nothing more than Islamophobia - in stopping a motorist for a traffic violation; a state or local law enforcement officer can check the motorist¶s name against the National Crime Information Center¶s various files, which include terrorist watch list records exported by the Terrorist Screening Center. The National Crime Information Center, according to the FBI, is available to virtually every law enforcement agency nationwide, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.241 THE VEILED THREAT Nicolas Sarkozy, the law-and-order Minister of the Interior of France told the annual congress of the Union of Islamic Organizations that Muslim women must remove their veils for identity photographs or they would be issued identity papers. His remarks were met with boos and hisses.242 Britain¶s former foreign secretary Jack Straw urged Muslim women to remove full facial veils when talking to him, saying the veil was ³such a visible statement of separation and of difference´ that it jeopardized British social harmony.243 Muazzez Ilmiye Cig, an expert on Sumerian civilization, asserted that 5,000 years ago, the headscarf was a symbol to distinguish the temple priestess who had ritual sex with young men to celebrate fertility. On December 29, 2003 protestors at the French Embassy in Tehran shouted not just ³Death to France´ but also ³Death to Chirac the Zionist´ after the French proposed to ban the hijab in public schools. In September 2004 headscarves were in fact banned in France¶s public schools. The Palestinian Authority's Chief Mufti declared that, ³French laws banning the hijab constitute a war against Islam as a religion.´ Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri agreed, ³France, the country of liberty defends only the liberty of nudity, debauchery and decay, while fighting chastity and modesty.´ Al-Qaeda in Mesopotamia kidnapped two French journalists in Iraq when

the ban went into effect and threatened to execute them but the French did not capitulate and we released the journalists 124 days later. To add further insult to Islam at Paris fashion shows in 2006, models appeared with their faces hidden or obscured. Brother Moussaoui summed up our feelings about the French, ³I want to make clear that I am not French and have no relation. I'm a sworn enemy of France. So I want to make this in the record that I'm not French, okay? I tell you I am a Muslim, and I have nothing to do with a nation of homosexual Crusaders. And I am not a frog.´ If Moussaoui had any access to the outside he would be happy to hear that in Aceh, Indonesia, officers belonging to a special Shari'ah police unit stop women on the street who do not have their head scarves properly adjusted and often impose fines.244 In December 2005 the Dutch parliament voted to forbid women from wearing the burqa or any Muslim face coverings in public, justifying the move in part as a security measure saying the fullbody garb worn by a small number of Muslim women in the Netherlands posed a grave security threat. The Dutch cabinet is awaiting the results of a study into the legality of such a ban under European human rights laws, before making its final decision. RIGHT OF HABEAS CORPUS Our unseen grasp reaches out to the highest levels of the American government. We were covertly behind the compromise version of the Secret Evidence Repeal Act, H.R. 2121. In 1996, one of the most dangerous pieces of legislation effecting our movement was passed by the United States Congress with bipartisan support: the Omnibus Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act. This act created Alien Removal Terrorist Courts in which secret evidence, evidence that the government does not have to reveal, is used to detain and deport members of the jihadi community without ever allowing the person to see the evidence against them. Not only does this make it difficult for us to defend ourselves in their kangaroo courts, more importantly it makes it impossible, or very difficult for us, to carry out reprisals against witnesses and informers and their families and friends. One of the worst cases of repression under this law concerned Algerian political leader Dr. Anwar Haddam. A member of the Islamic Salvation Front, an Al-Qaeda affiliate, Haddam was elected to the Parliament of Algeria in December 1991. After the military coup in January 1992, members of the Islamic Salvation Front were imprisoned and tortured; some were killed, while others like Haddam were able to get out of the country.245 Haddam, who fled to the United States, was selected to head the Islamic Salvation Front Parliamentary Delegation Abroad, to establish an Islamic Republic-inexile. Haddam worked out of the offices of the American Muslim Council and was listed as President of the Islamic Salvation Front.246 On December 6, 1996 the INS detained Haddam and exclusion proceedings were initiated ± even though Haddam had been issued valid parole status through February 16, 1997! On May 5, 2000 Haddam was granted political asylum. On May 12,

2000 the INS, who claimed that it was a mistake, revoked this grant. After four years in prison Haddam was finally released in December 2000. With the help of God, and despite the fact that Haddam was sentenced to death by an Algerian court for his alleged role in a deadly 1995 car bombing near a police station in Algiers, he remains in America until this day.247 The Brother spent four years in prison. The secret evidence provision of this bill had to be revoked! On May 23, 2000 the full House Judiciary Committee held a hearing on H.R. 2121 (the Secret Evidence Repeal Act); the witness list was revealing. Apart from the FBI General Counsel and the INS General Counsel the only other opponents of the bill to testify were Jewish; Bruce Ramer (president, American Jewish Committee), Thomas Homburger (National Executive Committee, Anti-Defamation League), Steven Emerson (Emerson would be hired by counter terror Czar Richard Clarke to report on our activities within the United States since he believed that the FBI was failing to do so in an adequate manner).248 Emerson has been a long-term problem for jihadi ± In 1998 he told Congress, I became the target of radical fundamentalist groups throughout the United States (and internationally) who fiercely denied the existence of µIslamic extremism' and accused me of engaging in an µattack against Islam.' For this µtransgression,' my life has been permanently changed « One morning, in late 1995, I was paged by a federal law enforcement official « I found out why I had been summoned: I was told a group of radical Islamic fundamentalists had been assigned to carry out an assassination of me.249 Stephen Flatow whose daughter was killed in a bus bombing carried out by Hamas in the Zionist entity in 1995. Alexander Cockburn has called the secret evidence cases, ³An ugly affair whose bottom line is whether the Israeli government can reach into U.S. courts...to inhibit the most basic rights of U.S. citizens.´250 On September 26, 2000 the House Judiciary Committee, on a voice vote, passed H.R. 2121, a bill that would have given our warriors the same rights as defendants in criminal cases. As amended, the bill permitted the use of classified information in immigration cases by procedures modeled after the Classified Information Procedure Act, that is, a detained person would be given an unclassified summary of the classified information. This summary would give the Brother ³substantially the same ability to make his defense as would disclosure of the...classified information,´ and would be the only part of the classified information the immigration judge would be given. The judge would therefore not be swayed by the sensitive information not shared with the detainee, for fear that he or is attorney would pass it back to us, his client. This would eventually result in the informant being killed preferably by decapitation, and his wife

drowned in the tears of the children who will perhaps never see their jihadi fathers again. There would be no ³secret evidence´ because the immigration judge would base any decision on the same information that is shared with the defendant, information of a very limited nature. Many of our people would go free, free to wage war on America¶s armed forces, police departments and complicitous so-called ³civilians.´ Michigan Democratic Representatives David Bonior and California Republican Representative Tom Campbell and other members of Congress with a substantial Arab constituency sponsored the legislation. The amended bill was reintroduced as H.R. 1266 in the 2002 Congress, and has garnered approximately 100 co-sponsors. The amended bill did not pass and the United States Court of Appeals in Philadelphia affirmed the constitutionality of closed immigration hearings thanks in part to the testimony of the hick FBI agent Dale Watson ³that even details that seem innocuous in isolation, such as the names of those detained, might be pieced together by knowledgeable people within the terrorist network, who could in turn shift activities to a yet-undiscovered terrorist cell. Because immigration judges cannot be expected to accurately assess the harm that might result from disclosing seemingly trivial facts seeking closure on a case-by-case basis would ineffectively protect the nation¶s interests.´ In May 2003 the United States Supreme Court refused to review the constitutionality of secret immigration hearings. David Bonior, who, like William Kunstler, does not share our religion yet is almost a Brother, gave up his seat to run for governor but was defeated in the primary. Bonior was a leading voice opposing support for occupied Palestine throughout his career. Abdullah Al-Arian, the son of Sami Al-Arian, worked as an intern for Congressman Bonior. David Bonior received a $3,200 campaign contribution from Brother Sami AlArian. The Secret Service ejected Abdullah from the White House during a June 2001 meeting of Muslims, but Bush later sent the Al-Arians a letter of apology.251 PROTOCOL 13. DESPITE DOCTRINAL DIFFERENCES THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN IS OUR BEST HOPE TO DESTROY ISRAEL AND THE UNITED SATAN In 1991 Hassan al-Turabi was a pan-Islamist visionary who played host to many divergent Muslim leaders and organizations at Friendship Hall in Khartoum. Iraqi intelligence agents encountered the leadership of al-Qaeda in Khartoum, as did numerous other Muslim delegates. The neo-conmen turned this into ³a meeting in 1992 between Iraqi Intelligence and al-Qaeda was brokered by Hassan al-Turabi.´ Hassan AlTurabi engineered an alliance among the Sunni-dominated Sudan, Shi¶ite Iran, and Pakistan. In 1993 under pressure from our clerics, Usama bin Laden faced internal resistance to any suggestion of co-operation with Saddam. In December 1993 a major jihadi conclave took place in Khartoum, Sudan, sponsored by Hassan al-Turabi. Subsequently, Hassan al-Turabi created the Popular Arab Islamic Conference that was a vehicle for bringing together Sunni, Shi¶ite, and

secular, heretofore Marxist, groups. The outreach went in all directions. Mullahs from Iran and Afghanistan attended the Popular Arab Islamic Conference meeting, along with delegates from Hamas, Hizb¶allah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Two generals, one of them a former chief of the Inter-Services Intelligence Agency, and an adviser to former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto led the Pakistani delegation. Usama bin Laden, who was living in Sudan, was there, as was Sheik Gilani.252 But Iraq was conspicuous by it absence. In the evening, large crowds regaled the assembled jihadi with chants of ³Down, down U.S.A!´ and (in Arabic) ³Death to the Jews!´ When Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman traveled to Detroit with the informer Emad Salem in 1991, they attended a meeting where a video taped address by Hassan alTurbai was shown. The CIA helped Hassan al-Turabi enter the country to meet with Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman¶s followers. It was during one such CIA-aided trip in 1992 that Hassan al-Turabi helped map the strategy for the World Trade Center bombing.253 Dr. Hassan al-Turbai was placed under house in February 2001 on charges of undermining the Constitution of the Sudan and waging war against the state. His house arrest marked the end of a long power struggle with President Umar al-Bashir, whom he helped bring to power in a 1989 coup. In September 2002 Hassan al-Turabi was sent to prison. When his detention expired in August 2003 al-Bashir extended it but finally released him in October 2003. FAROUK HIJAZI Postwar debriefs by the Americans provided information on a 1995 meeting between bin Ladin and senior Iraq Intelligence Service official Faruq Hijazi. According to the FBI, Hijazi stated during his debriefing that he met bin Ladin once in Sudan in January 1995. The CIA noted that foreign government intelligence service reporting also indicated that bin Ladin met with Hijazi in Khartoum in January 1996. The CIA stated that it lacked information about the content of their conversation. The meeting came in response to a request to the Iraqi government through the government of Sudan on behalf of bin Laden. Hijazi told debriefers that Saddam selected him because he was secular, which would make him less sympathetic to bin Ladin's radical message. Hijazi also noted that Saddam gave him explicit instructions that he was "only to listen" and not negotiate or promise anything to bin Ladin."' During the meeting in Khartoum, bin Ladin reportedly asked that Iraq allow him to open an office in the country, provide him with Chinese sea mines, provide military training and broadcast the speeches of a radical anti-Saudi cleric Shaykh Salman alAwdah.254 Hijazi told debriefers that once he returned to Iraq, he wrote a negative report

Colin Miner ³CIA Trained WTC Bombing Suspect´ New York Post January 24, 1994. 254 . In the early 1990s the Committee for the Defense of Legitimate Rights operated in conjunction with al-Awdah¶s criticisms of the regime. In November 5, 2004, on the eve of the U.S. siege on the Iraqi city of Falluja, al-Awdah signed an ³open letter to the Iraqi people´ that called for Iraqis to join in a defensive jihad against the U.S. military occupation. http://www.ccc.nps.navy.mil/si/2005/Mar/jonesMar05.asp
on the meeting with bin Ladin. Hijazi "criticized bin Ladin for his hostile speech and his insistence on the Islamization of Iraq." Hijazi said that he assessed that "working with bin Ladin would damage relations with Arab countries through the region." According to Hijazi, Saddam immediately refused bin Ladin's requests for the office, mines and military training, but expressed some willingness to broadcast the requested speeches from the anti-Saudi cleric. Hijazi did not know if Iraq ever actually broadcast the speeches because he stated that Saddam delegated the decision to a lower level of the Iraqi government. Soon after Hijazi filed the report, he "received word from his Iraqi Intelligence Service chain-of-command that he should not see bin Ladin again." Hijazi told debriefers that, "this was his sole meeting with bin Ladin or a member of al-Qaeda and he is not aware of any other individual following up on the initial contact." A captured document states that bin Ladin asked Hijazi in the 1995 meeting to conduct joint operations against foreign forces in Saudi Arabia. The document is handwritten, from an unknown source, and without official stamps or markings. Although the Iraq Survey Group reported that handwritten records in Iraq were common, the lack of formal document characteristics or signatures precludes a comparison with documents known to be authentic to determine signs of forgery. Nonetheless, the DIA assesses that the document is authentic based on an analysis of its content. The document describes Iraqi Intelligence Service contacts with Saudi oppositionists, including bin Ladin. The document does not indicate that Saddam agreed to joint operations with bin Ladin, but notes that Saddam "agreed to dedicate programs for targeted broadcasting." The document also states, "Through dialogue and agreements we will leave the door open to further develop the relationship and cooperation between both sides." Based on these earlier intelligence reports the Wolfowitz PAC concocted a story out of whole cloth that Mohammed Atta was also said to have met with Farouk Hijazi. Farouk Hijazi, who was Iraq¶s ambassador to Turkey, and a former head of the foreign covert operations division of the Iraqi Intelligence Service, was alleged to have traveled to Kandahar, Afghanistan to meet with bin Laden in December 1998. Farouk Hijazi had allegedly gone to Kandahar to recruit bin Laden into a partnership with Saddam Hussein and to offer bin Laden refuge in Iraq. This is patently ridiculous, as Usama bin Laden¶s presence in Iraq would have provided an excuse for the Wolfowitz PAC to invade and occupy that country. Farouk Hijazi allegedly developed plans for hijacking civilian airliners and crashing them into civilian targets during the mid-1990s at the Iraqi training facility in Salman Pak, south of Baghdad, and inspired Usama bin Laden. After his capture, Farouk Hijazi denied having met with Atta.255 THE AMERICAN ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE, IRAN AND AL-QAEDA There is no denying that al-Qaeda received much help from the Islamic Republic of Iran. It escaped major attention as it was carried out in a covert fashion and the neocons had everyone concerned about the Iraq-Al-Qaeda connection. In an effort to prepare the American public for an eventual war with Iran, the intelligence community and figures connected to neo-con institutions like the National Review and the American Enterprise Institute, had in their employ a defector from Iran
who would claim to have witnessed meetings on a leadership level between Al-Qaeda and Iranian Government officials. During the trial of Mohamad Atta¶s ex-roommate, Abdelghani Mzoudi the Moroccan in Germany for working with Al-Qaeda ³the Iranian defector Hamid Reza Zakeri´ submitted a written statement on behalf of the prosecution then he reluctantly agreed to testify. HAMID REZA ZAKERI ³Hamid Reza Zakeri´ (German intelligence suggested he might be using the name of a high-ranking Iranian spy who defected to India in 2003) is an Iranian intelligence official who according to one legend, fled to England. He was reportedly born in 1962 in Najafabad city in Esfahan Province and worked with the revolutionary committees and the Revolutionary Guards in Esfahan from the outbreak of the revolution until 1985. He then reportedly moved to Tehran where he became a Revolutionary Guards official working as an inspector and director before moving to the Security Ministry where he held posts for several years. He later reportedly joined the security organ of the Guide's Bureau as an inspector and official in charge of the secretariat's security. Hamid Reza Zakeri claimed he was a CIA asset since 1992 when he made contact with the agency while running a pizza restaurant as a cover for his intelligence operation on behalf of Iran and that he was a member of a department of the Iranian intelligence service that was ³responsible for carrying out terrorist attacks globally.´ The German magazine Der Spiegel identified him as a former MOIS (Ministry of Intelligence and Security) officer who developed relationships with German and French intelligence services after his defection in 2001. He said his department had worked with al-Qaeda, and Abdelghani Mzoudi had spent three months in Iran learning to master codes and was a Qu¶ran-carrying member of Al-Qaeda. If al-Qaeda used Iranian codes Iran would know our every plan and movement and al-Qaeda would no longer be an autonomous organization. In the document, the bogus defector said he had obtained an e-mail from Iran referring to ³the person who has just been released in G,´ presumably Germany. The e-mail stated that Abdelghani Mzoudi had to be eliminated since he was suspected of co-operation.256 Yet no evidence of this cooperation ever surfaced. Abdelghani Mzoudi's lawyers were the Jews Gul Pinar and Michael Rosenthal.257 Gül Pinar was born on November 6, 1968 in Istanbul. Apart from two years of her school time that she spent at French boarding school among nuns, she grew up in Turkey. In 1982 Gul and her mother moved to Germany and in 1987 she began her law studies in Hamburg.258 Hamid Reza Zakeri claims were outrageous as he also maintained to have informed US authorities of an impending attack before September 2001.259 In July 2001, Hamid Reza Zakeri said, he was informed by a major Iranian intelligence agent who used the name ³Haddadian´ that an attack against the U.S. was coming within a few

weeks of September 10, 2001. Hamid Reza Zakeri fled to Baku, Azerbaijan's capital where he said he walked into the U.S. Embassy and gave the American ambassador and a CIA representative a five-page handwritten statement about the upcoming attack. He said he met with the CIA at a safehouse and the agency seemed interested in his information then his contact was terminated after a CIA agent named "George" received a telephone call from Washington.260 Why didn¶t he contact German or French Intelligence? Hamid Reza Zakeri also claimed that in 2001, a delegation with S¶ad bin Laden, Usama bin Laden's son, was in Iran and that Sa¶d Usama bin Ladin had apprised the Iranians of our September 11th Raids since he wanted Tehran's help in sheltering our members afterwards.261 Here Zakeri adhered to the American Enterprise Institute Party Line ± turn America against both Iraq and Iran by linking them to Usama bin Laden. The ³S¶ad bin Laden was alleged to be living in Iran in 2003 and was a member of the alQaeda network story´ was cut and pasted on every neo-con Zionist or pro-Zionist website and blog on the Internet.262 The young Yemeni wife of Usama bin Ladin came to Iran with her son and the Iranians handed her over to Yemen. Al-Qaeda leaders have been given sanctuary or medical attention in Iran but not Usama¶s family members.263 MOHAMMAD BAQER ZOLQADR In an earlier interview with Asharq al-Awsat, Hamid Reza Zakeri said that Ayman al-Zawahiri had very close relations with the Iranian Revolutionary Guards' Deputy Commander Brigadier General Mohammad Baqer Zolqadr.264 This was valid information that was made public by Sergeant Ali-Mohamed when he confessed to his activities in the Sudan during his allocution at his sentencing hearing. Coincidentally, Hamid Reza Zakeri talked about the time when bin Ladin was in Sudan where the Revolutionary Guards had an extensive presence. He said that General Zolqadr and others ran special training camps there for Hizb¶allah and the Iranian backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad, which was true. At the time Palestinian Islamic Jihad was under the command of Fathi Shiqaqi. Shiqaqi formed the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip during the 1970s, initially as a branch of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad. Among the Sunni¶s, Fathi Shiqaqi was the first individual who published a booklet which legitimized, for the first time the justification of suicide in Jihad. He called it sacrifice. Not only the suicide was legitimized but also the operation, as he drew the line between prohibited suicide and martyrdom. Shiqaqi was later assassinated by Mossad agents in Malta. When General Zolqadr was invited by the Chief of the General Staff of the Sudanese Armed Forces to Khartoum, he inspected the Al-Shifa pharmaceutical factory and confirmed that no Vx was produced there when

he called the attack on this facility one of the most brutal uncalled for measures ever taken against a Muslim country.265 In August 2005 Zolqadr congratulated Mahmood Ahmadi-Najad on his win and termed him a ³model fundamentalist.´ Zolqadr said, ³With the U.S. army on our borders, if the turnout had been low in this election, the enemy¶s appetite would have been wetted.´ Zolqadr, who said the outcome of the election ³fulfilled all the objectives of the Supreme Leader´, played a key role in organizing the 300,000-strong Iranian Revolutionary Guard Council and the Bassij force to influence the outcome of the elections through religious-inspired intervention. Hamid Reza Zakeri also spoke about the role of Imad Mughniyah of Hizb¶allah in some joint operations, which he said Iranian intelligence had financed and were carried out by elements from Palestinian Islamic Jihad and other fundamentalist organizations. Bin Laden, he said, was to have met with several others of similar mind in Khartoum, Sudan, in March 1995 on the fifth floor of a building called Friendship Hall. The discussion included destabilizing the Saudi regime and mounting a jihadi campaign in America. There reportedly was specific talk of bombing airliners. By several accounts, the participants included Mousa Abu Marzook and Imad Mughniyah of Hezbollah.266 Mughniyah directed the bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut in 1983. He is under sealed indictment for the hijacking of a TWA plane in 1985 in which an unarmed Navy SEAL was shot and dumped on the tarmac.267 In July 1996, Western intelligence learned Mughniyah was a passenger aboard the Kuwaiti-flagged freighter Ibn Tafil. A joint U.S. Marine/SEAL snatch operation was put together. But at the last minute, the Clinton White House scrubbed the Navy's plan to board the ship and capture or kill him. The Operation might have interfered with a rendezvous Clinton had with the Jew Lewinsky. He was responsible for the kidnapping and torture/murders of CIA Beirut station chief William Buckley, and Marine Lieutenant Colonel Rich Higgins and was also an organizer of the Istanbul Synagogue bombing in November 2003. Mughniyah had infiltrated Turkey and co-operated with the Turkish Hizb¶allah group in the operation.268 Imad Mughniyah was in Damascus in June 2006. He went as part of the official party when President Ahmadinejad visited Bashar al-Asad.269 According to Zakeri, Imad Mughniyah was the liaison officer with Dr. Al- Zawahiri and other Islamist organizations¶ leaders who came to Iran and met some senior officials in the Guide Bureau¶s security organ. Imad Mughniyah supposedly brought them a message from Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri saying, ³We need your help to carry out an extremely serious operation America.´ Zakeri said he believed the request was discussed but was turned down. It was said that Iranian Security possessed a scale model of the World Trade Center prior to the big day. Zakeri said the head of his department and Nateq-Nuri, a hard-line Islamist Majles Speaker and Guardian Council

member Nateq-Nuri who was Khatami¶s election rival, who Zakeri said was head of inspection in the Guide Bureau¶s office, and his representative in the Higher Security Committee, decided to ask Imad Mughniyah to maintain his ties with Dr. Ayman alZawahiri and his colleagues but without involving himself in their activities. Nateq-Nuri, who was a symbol of the religious conservatives of Iran was linked to al-Qaeda by Zakeri¶s lies. Who disseminated this propaganda designed to convince America that Iran was its enemy, so that America would do Israel¶s work for it? A Jew named Kenneth R. Timmerman connected with the American Enterprise Institute who had a book published by Random House270 Countdown to Crisis, which made Zakeri¶s lies into fact, not fiction. The usual Internet suspects, The New York Sun, Newsmax, Frontpage and the Rantburg blog promoted Timmerman¶s work, so that if anyone did a search there would be many references to it giving it an air of credibility to those who were unaware of the neo-con-spiracy. Timmerman runs a CIA-tainted outfit called the Foundation for Democracy in Iran that is composed of CIA-proprietary connected propagandists such as Nader Afshar, who is president of the shadowy Middle East Consulting Associates and has worked extensively with the former United States Information Agency and the Voice of America Farsi Service. Joshua Muravchik is another Foundation for Democracy in Iran Board Member who has been a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute since 1987. Peter Rodman is another Board Member of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran. Since July 2001, he has been serving as Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs. Rodman¶s wife, Veronique, is employed as the media liason for the American Enterprise Institute. There is no need to invent connections between Iran and Al-Qaeda, when they already exist although in less sensational terms. This seems to be what is going to happen as the State Department has opened a Department of Iranian Affairs section, a precursor to a similar unit in the Pentagon.271 But the neo-con-spirators are convinced that the American people will not make the right choice, if left to their own devices, and like dumb cattle, must be herded and prodded in the correct direction. They have the interests of Israel at heart, not the United States, as they lead their cattle to slaughter. At the end of his trial Abdelghani Mzoudi, who had been who had been released for lack of evidence then re-arrested, was told, ³You were acquitted not because the court is convinced of your innocence, but because the evidence was not enough to convict you" as the U.S. would not let Ramzi Binalshibh testify.
