I have been scared by friends and relatives – paranoid in these times of guilt by association – ‘Don’t write they will come after you too” For what? writing a blog entry. Fear is a strange thing…Allah (SWT) may I never be fearful of anyone but You… Ameen.   She set up the table and

Dec. 30, 2010   Tehran Times By Yvonne Ridley I wonder if Hillary Clinton really believes in the pompous invective that shoots from her lips with the rapidity of machine gun fire. We had a classic example of it just the other day when she let rip in her grating, robotic monotones over a Moscow court's decision to jail an oil tycoon. To be fair to Clinton, she was not alone. There was a whole gaggle of disapproving foreign ministers who poured forth their ridiculous brand of Western

There were people from the Christian community among those who were out on the streets to show solidarity with Aafia and her family. Aafia's family complain that their request for a new lawyer for her has been turned down by the US authorities and that lawyers are not allowed to meet

As 2010 comes to a close and we, all in our own ways, prepare to celebrate, decompress and reflect, let us not forget those who are separated from their loved ones and those who are deprived of the many blessings most of us take for granted: health, friends, family and freedom.

Last month it was Ayman al-Zawahiri attempting to turn her into a pin-up girl for suicide bombers. Now it is the turn of Abu Yahya al-Liby. At this rate I expect Aafia to be the covergirl for "al-Qaeda Chic: The Hottie in the Hijab" next month.
