The biggest threat to American Muslims comes from extremism in their own communities, not from government surveillance or police profiling, a Muslim activist told lawmakers Wednesday.
Pakistani authorities "knowingly used perjured testimony" and failed to pursue other leads in convicting four men of the 2002 murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, according to a report based on a 3½-year probe of the case.
If Angelina Jolie fell down in a forest, and no one was there to hear it, would she still make a sound? What a question. Of course she would — because Angelina Jolie is the forest. As former Wall Street Journal reporter Asra Nomani noted in a recent Washington Post essay, Miss Jolie's role in "The Mighty Heart" as the wife of slain journalist Daniel Pearl is so dominant that "Danny himself had been cut from his own story." Imagine how ravenously Miss Jolie might gobble these stories:
"Do you have specialized knowledge or expertise in terrorism and law enforcement?" she asked them, "Yes or no?"
Author Asra Nomani said she once attended a retreat organized by Rauf and Khan, and noted that Rauf allowed parallel prayer sections for men and women — a rare practice.
