What goes around comes around. While the “collateral damage” continues to climb in Iraq and Afghanistan, the American people are losing their health as well. According to this study 45,000 Americans die annually due to the simple fact that they don’t have health insurance. That’s about 1/3 to the death toll of Iraq. Now AETNA, a major health insurance provider wants to cut over 600,000 Americans from their health insruance. Why? In order to make a profit.
Health insurance giant Aetna is planning to force up to 650,000 clients to drop their coverage next year as it seeks to raise additional revenue to meet profit expectations.
In a third-quarter earnings conference call in late October, officials at Aetna announced that in an effort to improve on a less-than-anticipated profit margin in 2009, they would be raising prices on their consumers in 2010. The insurance giant predicted that the company would subsequently lose between 300,000 and 350,000 members next year from its national account as well as another 300,000 from smaller group accounts

A radical New York imam who was once investigated as a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center will share the stage Saturday night as a featured guest and speaker when the Council on American-Islamic Relations celebrates its 15th anniversary in Washington.
This is really shocking. I went to Stony Brook University and I absolutely loved the community there. I had never experienced any type of bigotry or hate crime there. It’s really sad that these guys had to print the cartoon and spread it around campus. What would they accomplish by this? I hope and pray that Stony Brook campus police catch those involved.
State Farm Insurance was also included, but now they are pulling their ads. I’m really impressed by the power of MediaMatters. Anything that is against this guy Glen Beck and FOX News, I’m willing to support (as long as it’s not haram).
I don’t think I can boycott Red Lobster though. Those biscuits are, mashaAllah, good!
Terrorism: The unequal treatment of two religiously motivated crimes By Junaid M. Afeef, June 8, 2009
For two recent crimes, a Muslim, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, is charged with terrorism and murder. In a similar case, a Christian, Scott Roeder, is charged with murder but not terrorism. Yet, there are ample indications that both sought to influence government policy.
