Welcome to the next issue of Islam in 60 Seconds in the year 2010

As-Salaam Alaikum,

Welcome to the next issue of Islam in 60 Seconds in the year 2010. Unfortunately this week we faced an increase in violence, with a major suicide attack in Karbala, Iraq over the past week. Details of the attack can be found at the IIC blog and are horrifying. They show a blatant disregard for Islam and the tragedy of Imam Husain in Karbala.

As always, I thank you for taking the time to read Islam in 60 Seconds, and ask that you pray for a better world, God Willing.

Masalama,
Rahat Husain
Executive Director

Swiss antagonist of minarets embraces Islam

The Nation
 
Renowned Swiss politician Daniel Streich, who rose to fame for his campaign against minarets of mosques, has embraced Islam.
A member of the Swiss People's Party (SVP) and a well-known politician, Daniel Streich was the first man who had launched a drive for imposition of ban on mosques minarets, and to lock the mosques in Switzerland. The proclamation of Streich's conversion to Islam has created furore in Swiss politics, besides causing a tremor for those who supported ban on construction of mosques minarets.
Muslim advocates decry councilwoman Facebook post

AP
 
Muslim advocates are demanding an apology from a California city councilwoman  for posting anti-Muslim comments on her Facebook social networking page. Muslim organizations in California on Friday called on Lancaster Councilwoman Sherry Marquez to apologize for a comment last weekend about the 2008 beheading of Aasiya Hassan in New York. It included the comment, "This is what the Muslim religion is all about."

Muslim Harvard Law student detained, deported by Israel

Harvard Law Record
 
A warm smile and easy laugh reveal Hebah Ismail's unthreatening, gentle personality. An American citizen, this 3L of Egyptian descent works with the International Human Rights Clinic on projects related to Bedouin land rights. Hebah wears a hijab. She still does not know which of one, or combination, of these characteristics prompted the immigration personnel at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion International Airport to deem her dangerous and deny her entry to Israel.
Suicide Bomber Kills Shi'ite Pilgrims Near Iraqi Holy City of Karbala

Voice of America
 
Iraqi officials say that a motorcycle bomb blast has killed at least 20 Shi'ite pilgrims near the holy city of Karbala.  The explosion came as hundreds of thousands of Shi'ite pilgrims made their way, mostly on foot, to Karbala to commemorate the 40th day after the historic slaying of Imam Hussein, grandson of the Prophet Mohammed.  The apparently sectarian attack targeted Shi'ite pilgrims on one of the more sacred days of the year, as hundreds of thousands marched on foot to Karbala, in Iraq's Shi'ite heartland. The blast tore into a thick crowd of pilgrims, killing and wounding dozens.
Asia

Pathan, Vice Chancellor of Central University of Karnataka, former India's Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Mr. Ishrat Azeez and eminent scientist Dr. Shahid Jameel were elected as members of the Aligarh Muslim University Court, the supreme governing body of the University.
Note from 5 American Muslims in Pakistan Custody Claims Torture

NY Times
 
Five American Muslims in custody in Sargodha threw a handwritten note to reporters from a police vehicle while on their way to a court hearing on Tuesday, stating: "Since our arrest, the U.S.A., FBI, and Pakistani police have tortured us," according to their representative, Khalid Khawaja. A Pakistani relative of one of the men also claimed that the police had threatened to give them electric shocks. A spokesman for the American Embassy in Islamabad, Richard W. Snelsire, said that the United States "categorically rejects those allegations." Mr. Khawaja, whose organization provided the young men's lawyer, said a bail hearing would be held Feb. 8. The authorities have not yet brought charges against the men.

Somali militant group Al Shabab aligns with Al Qaeda

Christian Science Monitor
 
Al Shabab's announcement that it is aligned with Al Qaeda's global terror network confirms previous intelligence reports from the US and Somali governments, but it also complicates peacekeeping efforts in Mogadishu and Kenya. The US and Somali governments have previously accused Al Shabab of having ties to Al Qaeda, but these have not been confirmed until now. The announcement suggests that the group's identity is evolving: It has been focused on a nationalist agenda to establish an Islamic state in Somalia, but now seems to be moving toward a larger role in the global terror network.
Nigeria: Onovo Dismisses Al-Qaeda's Threat

All Africa
 
Islamic leaders on Tuesday chorused their dismissal and condemnation of the report of the offer by al-Qaeda to train Nigerian Muslims to kill Christians in the wake of the latest mayhem in Jos. The Inspector General of Police, Ogbonna Onovo, also poured cold water on the threat to declare war on Nigeria by a purported local cell of al-Qaeda, reassuring that, "If there is a group like that in this country, it would be smashed." Somebody somewhere is trying to get attention, he said, "but we would not give him," since the police have the capacity to track down any group of criminals in any part of the country
