Fox News : Muslims that doubt official 9/11 story could be terrorists
To Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, if a white person like former governor Jesse Ventura or former senator Mike Gravel questions the government's recounting of the 9/11 attacks, he (or she) is a "pinhead." But if a Muslim person questions the official story, well, that makes them a potentially dangerous "radical". Meaning: "That guy shouldn't be allowed within 10 miles of Ground Zero," the conservative broadcaster insisted during a recent episode of The O'Reilly Factor. Perhaps O'Reilly should try explaining that to the 45 percent of Americans, according to a 2006 Zogby International poll sponsored by 9/11 activists, who say a new investigation into the events is called for; or the 42 percent of Americans who said they believe the government is covering something up; or, the 49 percent of New York City residents who agreed in 2004 that U.S. officials "knew in advance that attacks were planned on or around September 11, 2001, and that they consciously failed to act."By his own words, the Fox News personality appears to be suggesting that Americans, particularly Muslims, who doubt the official 9/11 story be banned from Ground Zero.

France bids legal farewell to Muslim veil
France took an important step to ensure that the country officially bans wearing of burqa. Late on September 14, the French Senate almost unanimously approved the bill. The law banning wearing of traditional Muslim women's clothing that hides the face became one of the most discussed and controversial in modern French history. The initiative was suggested by authorities last year. They referred to numerous complaints from indigenous French, who fear "faceless" female figures. In January of 2010, the National Assembly (lower house of parliament) established a special commission to study the adoption of the bill. It concluded that "wearing the full hijab (the French legal parlance for burqa) is a challenge to our republic."In April, President Nicolas Sarkozy has ordered the parliament to draft the law. According to the document, France suggested to completely ban wearing of burqa in public places. Women who violate this requirement were to be punished by a fine of 150 Euros and a course of lectures on the basics of the secular foundations of the French Republic. Men who force women to wear burqa would face up to a year in prison.

IMF fears 'social explosion' from world jobs crisis
America and Europe face the worst jobs crisis since the 1930s and risk "an explosion of social unrest" unless they tread carefully, the International  Monetary Fund has warned."The labour market is in dire straits. The Great Recession has left behind a waste land of unemployment," said Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the IMF's chief, at an Oslo jobs summit with the International Labour Federation (ILO). He said a double-dip recession remains unlikely but stressed that the world has not yet escaped a deeper social crisis. He called it a grave error to think the West was safe again after teetering so close to the abyss last year. "We are not safe," he said. A joint IMF-ILO report said 30m jobs had been lost since the crisis, three quarters in richer economies. Global unemployment has reached 210m. "The Great Recession has left gaping wounds. High and long-lasting unemployment represents a risk to the stability of existing democracies," it said. The study cited evidence that victims of recession in their early twenties suffer lifetime damage and lose faith in public institutions. A new twist is an apparent decline in the "employment intensity of growth" as rebounding output requires fewer extra workers. As such, it may be hard to re-absorb those laid off even if recovery gathers pace. The world must create 45m jobs a year for the next decade just to tread water. Olivier Blanchard, the IMF's chief economist, said the percentage of workers laid off for long stints has been rising with each downturn for decades but the figures have surged this time. "Long-term unemployment is alarmingly high: in the US, half the unemployed have been out of work for over six months, something we have not seen since the Great Depression," he said.

Pakistani Minister calls on Obama to become Khaleefah
A few days ago a Pakistani government Minister urged US President Barrack Obama to offer Eid prayers at Ground Zero Mosque and become "Ameer-ul-Momineen" of Muslim Ummah. Minister of State for Industries and former member Pakistan Ideological Council, Ayatullah Durrani called TheNation to register his demand made to President Obama.  "The coming Eid would expectedly be observed on 9/11, this a golden opportunity for President Obama to offer Eid prayers at Ground Zero and become Amir-ul-Momineen or Caliph of Muslims. In this way, all the problems of Muslim World would be solved," he thought. Durrani argued that Muslim World was in "dire need" of a Caliph and the distinguished slot of Caliphate would earn President Obama the exemplary titles of what he termed, "Mullah Barrack Hussain Obama" or "Allama Obama." "The time is approaching fast. Barrack Hussain Obama must act now. This is a golden opportunity, Muslims badly need it," he added, saying that the elevation of President Obama to Muslim's Caliphate would be the "key to success."

India is engaged in genocide of Kashmiris to suppress movement
Kashmiri Hurriyat leader, Syed Ali Geelani has said that the killing of 17 civilians across the Valley during the protests against the desecration of the Quran are part of a larger conspiracy unleashed by India to carry out genocide of the Kashmiris for suppressing their ongoing movement for right to self-determination. According to the Kashmir Media Service, Geelani in a media interview in Srinagar said that he was immensely pained over the brutal killings of 17 Kashmiris. "These killings can't be taken in isolation as they are part of a larger conspiracy to carry out genocide of the Kashmiris to suppress the movement," he said.  The veteran leader maintained that New Delhi was fighting a lost battle in Kashmir. "India wants only the land of Kashmir and cares a hoot about the rights of Kashmiris. It has been using all its military might to crush the movement but has only achieved failure. It is frustrated by the overwhelming support to the Quit Kashmir Movement and is using pressure tactics to break the resolve of Kashmiris," he addedhmir Movement and is using pressure tactics to break the resolve of Kashmiris," he said.
