A proposed Islamic community center near ground zero in New York City will include separate prayer spaces for Muslims, Christians, Jews and people of other faiths, the imam behind plans for the facility wrote in an op-ed piece published online Tuesday.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf wrote in The New York Times that the attention surrounding the plans for the $100 million community center just blocks from the site of the Sept. 11 attacks “reflects the degree to which people care about the very American values under debate: recognition of the rights of others, tolerance and freedom of worship.”
Are the Natural Disasters Wrath of Allah ? From Kyaw Kyaw Oo’s Words of Love
This post is response to those who are accusing Islam as the religion of Angry God.Talking about recent flood disaster in Pakistan,some claimed that Muslims do not wish to help their brothers who are facing great natural disaster.
*(Saudi Arabia donated 44 Million USD, Turkey donated 11MillionUSD, and most Muslim volunteers worked without talking much!).Some of them started blaming Islam as a religion that taught natural disasters as a punishment from God to Muslims.

He added that the long-term benefits of ending the scheme would outweigh the “pain”.
Launched in 1970, the NEP has remained one of the most divisive aspects of Malaysia’s multi-ethnic society. The affirmative action programme uniquely favours the Malay majority over the Chinese and Indian minorities.

MILAN, April 5 – On one side of a drab street in working-class Milan, a squat structure houses a conservative mosque that was once believed to be a hub of radical Islam in Italy.

Human Rights standard test
He is usually not neutral because he knows which side of the bread is buttered. Pandikar Amin (WRONGLY, according to Human Rights standard) told Fong that he did not think that the term was insulting as pendatang haram referred to illegals.
Earlier, Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing’s (BN – Bintulu) spoke on the problems of illegal immigrants when Datuk Wilfred Bumburing (BN – Tuaran) stood up to complain of crimes committed by pendatang haram (illegals).
