President Obama invites student arrested over homemade clock to the White House - September 16, 2015 by admin

President Obama wants Ahmed Mohamed, the 14-year-old who was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school, to bring his creation to the White House. Obama tweeted out support for Mohamed this morning, saying that America ought to be encouraging students to get into science and engineering — presumably, rather than arresting them. “Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House?” he said. “We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great.”


President  tweeted;

Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great.



I Stand with Ahmed! Muslim Student finds Support and Encouragement; Social Media - September 16, 2015 by admin

Almost as soon as Avi Selk’s eye-popping story — about Irving 9th-grader Ahmed Mohamed’s arrest after teachers mistook his homemade clock for a bomb — posted Tuesday night, national media figures started weighing in.



How big is has it gotten? Just check out this visualization from Twitter:



Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has weighed in:

Assumptions and fear don’t keep us safe—they hold us back. Ahmed, stay curious and keep building. …

Muslim ninth grader arrested for bringing an electronics project to school in Irving, Texas - September 16, 2015 by admin

He insisted that the clock wasn’t a bomb, but the authorities at the school weren’t impressed:

The teacher kept the clock. When the principal and a police officer pulled Ahmed out of sixth period, he suspected he wouldn’t get it back.

They led Ahmed into a room where four other police officers waited. He said an officer he’d never seen before leaned back in his chair and remarked: “Yup. That’s who I thought it was.”

Ahmed felt suddenly conscious of his brown skin and his name — one of the most common in the Muslim religion. But the police kept him busy with questions.

“They were like, ‘So you tried to make a bomb?’” Ahmed said.

“I told them no, I was trying to make a clock.”

The stories Americans tell about 9/11 leave out discrimination against Muslims - September 11, 2015 by admin


Most of the undergraduates in my courses on Asian- and South Asian American communities, were in kindergarten when the attacks of 11 September 2001 occurred, so they have lived in the reality of post-9/11 America for most of their lives.

But their ability to critically analyze our government’s policies and practices in the post-9/11 environment is limited, because the narrative about the day and its aftermath – lives lost; War on Terror triggered – excludes the stories of South Asian, Arab, Muslim and Sikh communities in America and their ongoing experiences with hate violence, discrimination, government surveillance and profiling.

While the level of anti-Muslim sentiment increased precipitously in the months after 9/11, it has not subsided in the 14 years since then. The environment created by discriminatory government policiesxenophobic rhetoric and biased media representations remains a reality that many members of these communities contend with daily.

Anti-Muslim sentiment is alive and well, with small businesses coming together to designate “Muslim-free zones” and right-wing groups protesting Islam in front of mosques, armed with guns. And the political rhetoric about Muslim, Arab and South Asian communities is still divisive and harmful, with presidential candidates deciding what they will do to them in order to protect the nation’s best interests.

Experiences of a Muslim American Growing up in Post 9/11 America - September 11, 2015 by admin

The pain of growing up Muslim in post-9/11 America

By Mahjabeen Syed

Keep your head low.” My mother said those words to me sometime after Sept. 11, 2001. It left me baffled and confused at the age of 10. What did my being Muslim have to do with an attack that turned buildings into ash and rubble more than 700 miles away?

I accidentally smashed my thumb in my mother’s Corolla door on the first anniversary of 9/11. She insisted I still go to school even though my thumb had already begun to turn the hues of a Turbo Rocket Popsicle. I was dressed for the occasion, I thought. Red ribbons complacently swayed with my pigtails, red shirt and blue jeans making my white belt pop.

Standing in the middle of a congested sixth-grade classroom, right hand over my chest, feeling my heart race beneath my throbbing thumb, I distinctly recall being aware of the eyes on me. Hushed and mental accusations that would eventually be verbalized hovered about and seared with the kind of hostility that 11-year-olds were capable of, ignorant and intentionally unforgiving. An archaic recording of the national anthem roared louder than it should have as it tumbled out of the intercom. A moment of silence followed, and I detected the teacher taking a peek at me.

Abdallah S. Kamel, Saudi Businessman Gives $10M for Islamic Law Center at Yale - September 10, 2015 by admin

Abdallah S. Kamel made the award after meetings with university representatives including Yale President Peter Salovey. Kamel, chief executive of the Dallah Albaraka Group banking and real estate enterprise in Saudi Arabia, has sponsored a lecture series on Islamic law for the last three years.

White House; U.S to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees - September 10, 2015 by admin

Amid Syrian refugees crisis President Barack Obama has directed his administration to prepare to take in at least 10,000 Syrian refugees over the next year, the White House said on Thursday.


It is the first specific commitment the United States has made toward increasing its acceptance of refugees from the war-torn country.

Since the start of the Syrian civil war in 2011, the United States has taken in 1,500 refugees, with 300 more expected to be cleared by October.

But refugee advocates and some members of Congress say taking in an additional 10,000 refugees does not go far enough toward addressing the humanitarian crisis triggered by the war, which has prompted a massive refugee influx into Europe.
