Palestine Loss of Land Map 1946 - 2000

The Israel military government is unrelenting yet in another of its ethnic cleansing moves utilizing bombings and promiscuous destruction of Gaza.

After two weeks of bombings and now an all out land invasion, peace promises are broken dreams, nightmares a defenseless population.

HAMAS fires off rounds of artillery knowing it will be struck down by Israel’s massive anti-artillery doom system. HAMAS knows Israel is armed to the teeth and back by other superpowers, keeping it impenetrable to its posturing with rocks and stones.

This time, the first sign of trouble to come was the finding of three Israeli youth killed, their deaths attributed to HAMAS, who had not and did not came responsibility for them. No trial held to bring culprits to justice for these murders; no evidence of how those youths got to their place of death in the first place was ever revealed.

Eid Confirmation – Tuesday July 29th

As Salaamu Alaykum!

Dear Muslims,

This notice is to confirm that there have been no sighting reports in the continental USA tonight and therefore we will fast on Monday and celebrate the Eid on Tuesday.

(Note: Some Muslims using other methods such as the calendar only, sightings from other countries, or pure counting will be celebrating Eid on Monday)

The Conveners of Imams Associated with the Community of Imam W. Deen Mohammed use physical sighting from the continental USA, guided by the aid of astronomical science in order to project where and when our sightings can be made, thus giving our people a measure of foresight, while preserving the tradition of our Prophet and the wisdom contained within the ritual of that tradition.

May Allah reward all of us for our struggle, our charity, our sacrifice and devotion, with a wonderful and BLESSED EID!

Imam Mubaashir Uqdah
Northeast Section Convener
