Miracles in Japan: Four Month Old Baby Found alive !

A Japanese officer smiles as he holds a 4-month-old baby girl who was rescued in Ishinomaki, in Miyagi prefecture, on March 14, 2011

Amid the silent corpses a baby cried out — and Japan met its tiniest miracle.

On March 14 soldiers from the Japanese Defense Force were going door-to-door, pulling bodies from homes flattened by the earthquake and tsunami in Ishinomaki City, a coastal town northeast of Senda. More accustomed to the crunching of rubble and the sloshing of mud than to the sound of life, they dismissed the baby's cry as a mistake. Until they heard it again.

Al-Qaeda routing money to India via Europe | al Quada in India - Wikileaks

Even as the debate over black money rages, investigators in Peru say that they have found proof that terror outfit al Qaeda is routing money to India from Europe. The Peruvian Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) shared with the US that it has tracked the movement of money by al Qaeda elements to India via Peru, leaked US cables released by wikileaks have revealed. While the modus operandi has not been disclosed, a confidential US Embassy cable reveals that in December 2009, Peruvian investigators told US officials that it tracked the money transfer and noticed similar cases almost every month.
“FIU reports tracking cases similar to that of an OFAC-designated (US Office of Foreign Assets Control) al Qaeda element moving money from Europe through Lima and on to India,” the cable reads, quoting Enrique Saldivar, the head of the Peruvian FIU. It goes on to say that the country tracked similar cases at the rate of one a month. “Asked if this al Qaeda case was the first of its kind or they had seen similar cases before, Saldivar told NASOff that they see about one case a month,” it reads.

Terrorists stormed Islamic fundraising event in Orange County | Question Mark on Minority rights ?

A profoundly depressing video of protesters hurling abuse 
at attendees at an Islamic fundraising event in Orange County

The Southern California chapter of the Islamic Circle of North America Relief USA organised a fundraising dinner in Orange County, last month. But guess who also turned up? A motley collection of protesters who can be seen here chanting in the above video distributed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations civil rights group:
As the video shows, the rhetoric of the protesters became increasingly venomous toward the families and children who came to attend the ICNA Relief fundraising dinner. Protesters shouted invective statements such as "Go home terrorist," "Muhammad is a pervert, Muhammad is a child molester," "Go home and beat your wife, she needs a good beating," at the event-goers.
One of the protesters' guest speakers, seen in the video, is a local councilwoman who denounces the event as "pure, unadulterated evil," and continues:
I know quite a few Marines who would be very happy to help these terrorists to an early meeting in paradise.
The local paper, the Orange County Register, noted the signs saying "No Sharia law" but added: "In the afternoon, the event had the atmosphere of a July 4 picnic."

Two Republican congressmen also attended the protest rally, including one, Ed Royce, who spoke of how "multiculturalism" was paralysing America.
And the fundraising? For disaster relief, womens shelters, halal food banks, according to the Islamic Circle of North America.

(Mar 02, 2011 - ANAHEIM, CA) 
The Greater Los Angeles Area office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-LA) today released a video of a rally organized by anti-Muslim bigots to protest a February fundraising event held by an American Muslim relief group for relief work and charity in the U.S.
A few hundred protesters showed up to the rally, which was sponsored by groups such as: “We Surround Them OC 912” (a local Tea Party group), Rabbi David Eliezrie of Chabad - Yorba Linda, North Orange County Conservative Coalition, ACT! for America, and Pamela Geller (whose group “Stop the Islamization of America” has been designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center).

Elected officials Congressmen Ed Royce and Gary Miller, and Villa Park Councilwoman Deborah Pauly also attended and spoke at the protest rally.

The event – held at Yorba Linda Community Center, a facility that has been frequented by Muslim families and businesses over the years – first became a target of anti-Muslim bigots over two of the fundraiser’s speakers, who were to speak on the importance of charity in Islam. Initial attempts of some groups to have the Yorba Linda Community Center and the Yorba Linda City Council cancel the fundraising event failed, followed by the protest. 
In a statement, CAIR-LA said:

“We support the First Amendment right of protesters anywhere in America to voice their concerns, dissent, and even hatred. However, when our nation’s foundational values of inclusiveness, pluralism and equality are attacked by some in favor of calls for advocating hate and violence, then all Americans have a responsibility to challenge and expose such bigotry and those who enable it.

“As the video shows, the rhetoric of the protesters became increasingly venomous toward the families and children who came to attend the ICNA Relief fundraising dinner. Protesters shouted invective statements such as “Go home terrorist,” “Muhammad is a pervert, Muhammad is a child molester,” “Go home and beat your wife, she needs a good beating” at the event-goers.

“Even more disturbing was the participation and encouragement of elected officials in promoting the hateful protest rally. Villa Park Councilwoman, Deborah Pauly, while addressing the crowd at the rally, appeared to threaten Muslim event-goers. Congressman Ed Royce (R-40), in a troubling trend of disparaging Islam and its followers, added fuel to the fire by encouraging protesters to continue on with their hate-mongering. The attendance of Congressman Gary Miller (R-42) was a clear surprise, since he previously has engaged with all constituents, including Muslims, toward a better America.

“We strongly urge all elected officials in attendance to distance themselves from such an exhibition of hate and bigotry. We further ask residents and elected officials of Yorba Linda, Orange County and other parts of our nation to speak out against such hateful rhetoric and the continued Islamophobia that plagues our nation.”

Breaking: West Indies Team Stoned

The Mirpur crowd were not too pleased with Bangladesh's poor showing, Bangladesh v West Indies, Group B, World Cup 2011, Mirpur, March 4, 2011
The West Indies team bus has been stoned on its way back to the team hotel. There are no casualties or injuries, the team management confirmed, but the players are not amused. Chris Gayle tweeted moments after the incident, "This is some bullshit.....Bangladesh stoning our bus!!! Freaking glass Break!!! This is crap,can't believe..what next bullets!!!! Kiss teeth".
The team's media manager, Philip Spooner, confirmed that two windows cracked, but none shattered, and hence no stone could make its way inside. "We left the ground, and on our way back to the hotel, a couple of stones did hit our window," Spooner said. "Two windows were cracked, but not shattered. We are now back at the hotel, both teams are back at the hotel and are safe."

Muslim Student filed lawsuit on FBI via Council on American-Islamic Relations | Question mark on Minority Rights ?

Yasir Afifi
WASHINGTON – A community college student who says he's never done anything that should attract the interest of federal law enforcement officials filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the FBI for secretly putting a GPS tracking device on his car.
Yasir Afifi, 20, says a mechanic doing an oil change on his car in October discovered the device stuck with magnets between his right rear wheel and exhaust. They weren't sure what it was, but Afifi had the mechanic remove it and a friend posted photos of it online to see wh
ether anyone could identify it. Two days later, Afifi says, agents wearing bullet-proof vests pulled him over as he drove away from his apartment in San Jose, Calif., and demanded their property back.
Afifi's lawsuit, filed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, claims the FBI violated his civil rights by putting the device on his car without a warrant. His lawyers say Afifi, who was born in the United States, was targeted because of his extensive ties to the Middle East — he travels there frequently, helps support two brothers who live in Egypt, and his father was a well-known Islamic-American community leader who died last year in Egypt.
FBI Spokesman Michael Kortan declined to discuss the lawsuit or the agency's investigation into Afifi, but said, "The FBI conducts investigations under well-established Department of Justice and FBI guidelines that determine what investigative steps or techniques are appropriate. Those guidelines also ensure the protection of civil and constitutional rights."
Afifi, who is a business marketing major at Mission College and works as a computer salesman, said at a news conference to announce the suit that the agents never gave him a clear answer as to why he was being monitored.
"I'm sure I have done nothing wrong to provoke anyone's interest," Afifi said, although he noted that his family is from Egypt, he's a young man and he makes a lot of calls overseas. "So I'm sure I fit their profile."
Judges have disagreed over whether search warrants should be required for GPS tracking. Afifi's lawyers say they are filing this lawsuit in hopes of a decision saying that any use of tracking devices without a warrant in the United States is unconstitutional.
The federal appeals court in the Washington circuit where Afifi's case was filed ruled in August that the collection of GPS data amounts to a government "search" that required a warrant. The Obama administration asked the court to change its ruling, calling the decision "vague and unworkable" and arguing that investigators will lose access to a tool they now use "with great frequency."
The lawsuit says the agents who showed up to collect the device were "hostile," threatening to charge Afifi if he didn't immediately cooperate and refusing his request to have a lawyer present. The suit also says agents showed they knew private details about his life, such as which restaurants he dined at, the new job he'd just obtained and his plans to travel abroad.
"At first I was really confused," Afifi said at the news conference, adding that he finally decided to turn over the GPS. "I did give it back to them after a lot of pressure."

Angelina Jolie in Afghanistan | Pictures

Jolie, star of films such as “Mr & Mrs Smith” and also a UNHCR goodwill ambassador, spent two days meeting refugees, afterwards calling for more to be done to reintegrate former exiles into Afghan society.
Over 5.5 million people have returned to Afghanistan since 2002, the year after the Taliban were ousted by a US-led invasion, according to the UNHCR.
Most of them had fled to Pakistan and Iran and their return has increased the country’s population by over 20 percent, it says.
There are currently some 140,000 international troops in Afghanistan fighting a Taliban-led insurgency.
“The focus needs to be put now on reintegration and that means not just putting up shelter but making sure there is water, job opportunities, a school for the children and medical clinics,” Jolie said in a statement released by UNHCR at the end of the visit.
Jolie, married to fellow actor Brad Pitt, is noted for her humanitarian work. This was her second visit to Afghanistan, where she arrived Monday.

Students being checked for fake degrees in universities | Student Expelled from CIIT

After Politicians, the students are now being checked and scrutinized and a unique and interesting situation has risen in CIIT.
A student (best left unnamed) has been expelled from the university after his HSSC degree has been found to be invalid.
A stance to verify the degrees and qualifications of the students getting enrolled has been taken by CIIT. This is an amazing and great step as this would not only maintain the discipline and decorum of the university’s admission policy but also make sure that no student is in violation of this rule.
