Muslim Americans Once Again Condemn Terror

first_imgView image | gettyimages.comFor the second time in less than a month Muslim leaders here have had to condemn terror committed in the name of Islam, as they once more have proclaimed that these killers do not represent Islam’s billion adherents across the globe—a message that President Obama repeated in his Oval Office address to the nation Sunday night.In Westbury, the Islamic Center of Long Island released a statement on its website saying it “strongly condemns the shooting incident in San Bernardino, California.”In its statement, the ICLI, which recently unveiled an interfaith institute at the mosque, said it “stands with the victims and their families” while also calling on Congress to enact greater gun control measures.“May God give comfort to survivors and give all of us resolve and wisdom to liberate our country from violence, fear, hate and anger,” the ICLI said.In Suffolk County, Dr. Yousuf Syed, trustee of the Islamic Association of Long Island at the Selden Mosque, distributed a lengthy email titled “Open Letter to Fellow Americans, We Stand With Them in Solidarity in Condemning the Mass Shootings.”“How could men like the San Bernardino killer…claim to be Muslim, when he has no respect for his own one year innocent baby child he left behind without mercy—I cannot call him an animal, because it would be an insult to animals,” the letter reads. “They would not abandon their off-springs like that.”“Islam requires that Muslims possess ‘Upright Character,’ and deal justly with [the] entire human race, irrespective of their ethnicity, nationality, creed, and whether they are friend or foe—these are the teachings of Islam,” the letter notes.Condemnation of the attacks echoed from coast to coast, as it did following the Nov. 13 assault on Paris.Nationally, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the largest Muslim civil rights group in the country, decried the massacre inside the conference room of the Inland Regional Center, which serves the developmentally disabled, which killed 14 and injured 21 others. The facility was being rented by the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health for a holiday party. What began as a normal workday turned into a tragedy as a seemingly radicalized and heavily armed husband and wife duo gunned down their unsuspecting victims. It was the largest radicalized Islamic attack on US soil since nearly 3,000 people died on Sept. 11, 2001.“We condemn this horrific and revolting attack, and offer our heartfelt condolences to the families and loved ones of all those killed or injured,” said CAIR-LA Executive Director Hussam Ayloush. “The Muslim community stands shoulder to shoulder with our fellow Americans in repudiating any twisted mindset that would claim to justify such sickening acts of violence.” View image | gettyimages.comFederal authorities have yet to publicly identify a motive in last week’s shooting in San Bernardino, but the FBI is investigating the rampage as terrorism. Both Tashfeen Malik and her husband Syed Rizwan Farook were killed in a ferocious gunfight with authorities after they fled Inland Regional Center in a black SUV. Investigators now believe Malik had pledged allegiance to the self-declared Islamic State, citing her Facebook post under a different name that the social media site has since scrubbed.Over the years, Muslim Americans have often been unfairly criticized for the false impression that they don’t outright condemn terrorism whenever it occurs, whether it’s at home or abroad. Muslim groups and interfaith leaders, however, say Muslims do repudiate terror but their statements don’t get nearly enough media attention.Prior to the San Bernardino slayings, Muslim Americans were already on edge. They point to a wave of Islamophobia from presidential candidates and the public, as well as harsh rhetoric directed at Syrian refugees since the coordinated strikes in Paris last month which claimed 130 lives. CAIR has also documented troubling cases around the country when innocent Muslims have been the victims of reprisal and intimidation at their local mosques.

Anti-Islam rhetoric, Obama said, only plays into the so-called Islamic State’s hands.“We cannot turn against one another by letting this fight be defined as a war between America and Islam. That, too, is what groups like ISIL want,” the president said, using another name for ISIS. “ISIL does not speak for Islam. They are thugs and killers, part of a cult of death, and they account for a tiny fraction of more than a billion Muslims around the world — including millions of patriotic Muslim Americans who reject their hateful ideology.“Moreover, the vast majority of terrorist victims around the world are Muslim,” the president continued. “If we’re to succeed in defeating terrorism, we must enlist Muslim communities as some of our strongest allies, rather than push them away through suspicion and hate.”last_img read more

Sensative Documents Unsealed in Ghislaine Maxwell Civil Case

first_imgIt’s getting juicy…a cache of documents in civil litigation against the British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell was unsealed last night, including correspondence with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.The documents stem from a 2015 civil action brought against Maxwell by Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre, who has claimed that Maxwell lured her into Epstein’s orbit at 15 years old, under the guise of offering work as a masseuse at his Palm Beach estate. They include personal emails between Epstein and Maxwell as well as information from a discussion between Giuffre and her lawyer.Many documents in this case have been subject to an intense legal battle. Maxwell’s attorneys in the civil suit had argued to keep many records under seal, maintaining previously that “this series of pleadings concerns [attempts] to compel Ms Maxwell to answer intrusive questions about her sex life”. Maxwell’s attorneys are fighting to keep the documents under seal arguing that they are “extremely personal, confidential and subject to considerable abuse by the media.”Documents involving Maxwell’s deposition have not been released yet, as her lawyers are appealing their unsealing.Federal authorities arrested Maxwell on 2 July and charged her for allegedly participating in Epstein’s sex trafficking. Maxwell, daughter of the late publishing baron Robert Maxwell, pleaded not guilty on 14 July. Maxwell has repeatedly denied wrongdoing. Her lawyers have said she “vigorously denies the charges” and is “entitled to the presumption of innocence”.Maxwell is being held in jail pending trial, which is scheduled for next July.last_img read more

The skid continues as Nelson Leafs drops 3-2 decision to Fernie

first_imgThe tailspin continues for the Nelson Leafs.Nolan Lagace scored less than a minute into the third period to snap a 2-2 tie lifting the Fernie Ghostriders to a 3-2 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League victory over the Nelson Leafs Saturday night at the NDCC Arena.The loss is the fifth straight for Nelson, which is slowly falling out of the race for the top of the Murdoch Division after the Beaver Valley Nitehawks won its tenth consecutive game, 3-1 over Kimberley.Nelson trails the Nitehawks by 10 points in Murdoch standings. Beaver Valley defeated the Leafs 3-1 Friday in Nelson.“The last couple of games have been tough because we’ve had so many suspensions and injuries,” said Leaf captain Sawyer Hunt, finishing the game with two assists.“But we’ve got a good team in that (dressing room). So we just need to get back to the rink, have a good week of practice and be ready when we play Castlegar Thursday.”Twice the Leafs rallied from one-goal deficits Saturday.Tyler Abbott beat Ben Kelsch in the Leafs nets to give the Riders a 1-0 lead in the first period.Twelve seconds later, Dale Howell tied the game.Riley Siebel scored early in the second period to regain the lead for Fernie.But Jordan Unger pulled Nelson even on the power play before the period ended. However, in the third the Leafs had no answer after Lagace jammed the puck past Kelsch seconds into the final frame.Despite out shooting the Riders 10-6 in the period, Nelson failed to beat Fernie goalie Brandon Youngson to tie the game and force overtime.Hunt, Howell, David Lenzin and Ryan Piva all had great chances to tie the game.“You’ve got to give their goalie (Brandon Youngson) credit, he played well when we pressured him,” Hunt said.“But it’s tough playing two games like that in two days short handed.”For the third consecutive game the Leafs played minus a handful of players due to suspension and injuries.Saturday Nelson welcomed defenceman Jacob Karran back to the lineup following his two-game sit, but was still missing defenceman Brent Headon, and forwards Jack Karran and Mason Mullaney to suspension.All three players are expected back in the lineup when Nelson faces Castlegar.Nelson finished the game out shooting the Ghostriders 32-23.The Leafs dropped to third place in the Murdoch Division standings, a point behind Grand Forks Border Bruins, with an 8-6-2-0-1 record.The Bruins edged Spokane Braves 5-4 in the Boundary City to leapfrog past Nelson.The Leafs have little time to lick their wounds as the team travels to Castlegar Thursday to face the Rebels. And the Sunflower City squad will not be a pushover despite trailing the Leafs in the standings.Castlegar has won three consecutive games after blasting Columbia Valley Rockies 7-2 Saturday in Invermere.Next home game for Nelson is Saturday, November 26 when the Leafs host Grand Forks.last_img read more

Leafs bounce back to shutout Braves, Cooper scores twice to lead Green and White

first_imgRyan Cooper scored twice and Josh Williams recorded his third shutout of the season sparking the Nelson Leafs to a 4-0 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League victory over the Spokane Braves Saturday night at the NDCC Arena.The win snapped a brief one-game losing skid for the Green and White.Nelson opened the two-game home stand weekend with a narrow 2-1 loss Friday to Beaver Valley Nitehawks.Saturday, the Leafs jumped all over the Braves, scoring twice three minutes into the game to take hold of the contest.Cooper, receiving a gift-wrapped loose puck in front of the Braves net, opened the scoring just over a minute into the game.Justin Podgorenko made it 2-0 following a similar breakdown in the Spokane defence.Leaf coach Mario DiBella, a stickler for detail was pleased with the result despite times when the Leafs were inconsistent in their play.”Well there were good moments and bad moments out there, but we came to play tonight,” DiBella confessed.Nelson dominated most of the game, peppering Spokane goalie Ben Waslaski with 44 shots in total.The Braves were having lots of trouble breaking free from their side of the ice with Leafs swarming from all sides.Nelson on average for the night were getting 15 shots per period compared to Spokane’s five per period. Ryan Keilty, who was not in the lineup Friday against the Nitehawks, was back in the lineup in place of Jaiden LaPotre.”Coach (DiBella) said I was lacking certain things from my last game and I think I showed what he needed tonight,” said Keilty, connecting for his second goal of the season after converting a breakaway.DiBella agreed that Keilty had “improved” not saying much else on the matter.DiBella, on the other hand, had a bit more to say regarding Leaf Game star Ryan Cooper.”He really is special with how well he can start up plays and get the puck where it needs to be,” DiBella explained.Cooper’s two goals came in the first and third periods.With just over two minutes remaining, Cooper was on the ice looking for his hat-trick goal on the Leaf power play.”I wasn’t thinking about getting the hat trick at the time, I was just trying to throw pucks at the net,” Cooper said.When asked about his goals, Cooper said, “the second one felt more natural as I had my eyes closed for the shot.”“I like to visualize my shots as it makes me more comfortable when I shoot,” Cooper added.Nelson, tied for top spot in the Murdoch Division with Grand Forks Border Bruins, begin a five-game road trip Friday with a game in the Sunflower City against the Castlegar Rebels.Nelson then makes stops in Spokane, Kimberley, Golden and Invermere before returning home October 27th to face the Golden Rockets.BLUELINES: Ryan Cooper now leads the Leafs in scoring with 12 points — six goals and six assists — two points head of David Sanchez. Jackson Zimmermann and Sawyer Hunt are tied for third, each with nine points. . . .Netminder Josh Williams has jumped back into the lead in goalies with a 1.14 goals against average.

South Africa’s prisons go hi-tech

first_img22 August 2006South Africa has unveiled a high-tech national control centre that will monitor movements in prisons throughout the country via surveillance cameras, turnstile gates and metal detectors all linked through a state-of-the-art network.Developed by information technology firm Sondolo, the centre is part of an R88-million project to radically improve security in SA’s prisons.Officials manning the centre in Pretoria will be able to monitor “strategic access points” in prisons countrywide, and to communicate with officials at local level, alerting them to security breaches the moment they are detected.Details of inmates’ families and friends will also be logged into the system, making it easier to control prisoners’ access to the outside world.The process of beefing up security in SA’s prisons – to prevent escapes as well as weapon and drug smuggling – started in June 2005.Since then, over 1 500 cameras, 390 turnstile gates and hundreds of metal detectors have been installed in SA’s prisons, with more to come before the end of the year.Opening the national control centre on Monday, Correctional Services Minister Ngconde Balfour said “the game was over” for criminals who undermined security at prisons.Balfour said the government was considering installing the system in prison communal areas as well, to help combat violence among prisoners.SouthAfrica.info reporter and BuaNews Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more
