Ann Wilcox’s daily routine looks like any other American Muslim woman’s. She covers her head with a hijab, abstains from alcohol and pork, and rises before sunrise to perform the first of her five daily prayers.
They are everywhere. They are some who watched the Towers fall and chose to hold forgiveness in their hearts. They are those whose dreams died that day, but knew to keep living in gratitude.
Why would anyone spend money and time to watch a feature-length movie about Mormons? After attending a special screening and interviewing a few people involved with its production, I’ll propose four reasons to see “Meet the Mormons,” which begins showing in theaters Oct. 10.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community will host a blood drive in Chandler to honor 9/11 victims on Sept. 13.
Let’s face it, America and the West are failing now on the world stage. Particularly in the Middle East, fanatical Islamists are riding a huge wave of success. The convert-or-die crowd seems close to establishing the long-desired caliphate of regional Islamic hegemony.
During the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, Sameer Sarmast leaves the house each day with his wallet, his keys and... dates.
“How many times has the vocal religious minority been on the wrong side of history and had to be dragged kicking and screaming into line with the rest of humanity?”
The hype and rhetoric on both sides of SB 1062 now awaiting action by Gov. Jan Brewer may disguise the fact the measure does far less than some have suggested.
The last gasp of the Religious Right.
Rejecting claims it will lead to discrimination, a House panel voted 5-2 Tuesday to give individuals and the businesses they own more rights to refuse to provide services based on their religious beliefs.

PHOENIX — A legislative panel may be ready to jettison plans to try to build a border fence, having gathered less than $265,000 in donations over three years.
No matter how the latest D.C. follies end, one thing’s clear:
Just picture it: Two Baptist ministers, a rabbi, an evangelical preacher, a Mormon leader and a Presbyterian preacher — all sermonizing together, all with a resounding and united “amen.”
“Boy the left sure has thin skin, they are coming unglued over a rodeo clown making fun of Obama! After all it was the left that constantly made fun of George Bush, they called him everything but a white man. If anyone deserves ridicule it is Obama. He throws a baseball like a girl, I have seen better golf swings on 90-year-old men, and his policies have wrecked the economy!“
Two points: First, what a disservice to the grieving folks of Yarnell and Prescott by sending Joe Biden as the Federal representative to the memorial service. The man is a national joke who continuously supports that thought. And more disappointingly will be the absence of Home Land Security Security Secretary Napolitano; who of all dignitaries to attend should, being a former Governor of Arizona and under whose watch the disaster took place.
Boston - His arm in a cast and his face swollen, a blase-looking Dzhokhar Tsarnaev pleaded not guilty Wednesday in the Boston Marathon bombing in a seven-minute proceeding that marked his first appearance in public since his capture in mid-April.
I didn’t think I could ever agree with anything that was written by Leon Ceniceros. But I completely agree with everything he wrote in his very thoughtful letter:”Syria could become another American military failure” (6-30-13).
How could the Obama administration even considered for one minute arming the Syrian rebels?
Why should we trust our government? That’s a question civil libertarians would want us to ponder every day.
There’s good news and bad news in the twin terrorist outrages of the horrific running over and hacking to death of a British soldier and the Boston Marathon bombings. The good: intelligence agencies had some of these young terrorists on their radar. The bad news: having them on the radar did little good since the murderers still successfully completed their planned butchery.
I find it so routine, the negative comments regarding the recent “Mirandizing” letter to the editor. The comments as to which TV news reporting agency is the most biased is a banal and moot point which will never be put to rest. As are the comments about watching Law & Order, et al. Those readers have missed the issue; why isn’t the ‘suspected’ bomber being adjudicated as a terrorist instead of a poor Islamic refugee who enjoys blowing up his fellow citizens in the name of Allah? And yes, the shoe bomber was 2001; and again the issue was missed. That of, “Did the government learn nothing from it?” I sense people suffering political shame.
Horrible, the loss of three innocent lives in the Boston bombing! Then what word could one use to express the fact that between 158,000 and 202,000 civilians have died as a result of the ongoing conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan? It is understandable that the attack in Boston is a national tragedy for the United States. Our sympathies and prayers go out to the victims. But why is it that the loss of innocent lives in the Middle East has been hardly worthy of a second thought, if any, on our part?
In the Tempe, future inclusive leadership begins early due to a nationally recognized program ran by the city’s Diversity Office.
“The great Obama is in charge of the sequestration. So what does this guy do? He goes to air traffic controllers and lays them off to cause the most inconvenience he can to American travellers. He could have gone to the nonessential personnel they always tell to stay home when there is a major weather event in D.C. This guy is a real piece of work. I can’t believe there are people that actually think he is doing a good job?”
