Former POTUS Barack Obama may have played the part of a dainty liberal, but don’t be fooled, deep down Barack was a killer. A killer of mass proportions.As the US liberal and neocon media freak out over Trump’s interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, where Trump (GASP) admitted that he “respects” Putin, and America “is not so innocent” when it comes to killing…we present to you the real stone cold killer.
Numbers don’t lie.
When it comes to racking up ‘kills’, no one was more deadly these last eight years than Barack Hussein Obama.

True! Trump factor came into prominence in 2016 culminating in his surprise win in November. However, for Muslims , the whole Post 9/11 era has been one of immense stress and trauma, with a well- orchestrated Islamophobic campaign demonizing , and maligning them and their beloved religion. Many Muslim countries in the ME were dismembered under US and European vile agenda, even without UN approval while an indifferent world watched helplessly.
From within too, many pseudo-Islamic movements like Al Qaida and ISIS, origins of which can be traced to Western masters , were actively engaged in tar-brushing the peaceful image of Islam with impunity. Even government policies particularly in US and Europe also began to blatantly target Muslims through discriminatory measures such as Prevent Agenda in UK, Niqab Ban in France and the recent Muslim Ban in US.

I had just been appointed a senior lecturer at the UK-based Markfield Institute of Higher Education in the autumn of 2000 when the newly appointed director, Dr Zaghlul Al-Najjar, summoned me to his office. He spent the first few days of his tenure in office acquainting himself with the academic staff. On that day, it was my turn.
After a few introductory remarks, he handed a copy of my CV over to me and said: “I want you to correct the mistakes in it and then bring it back to me.” Curiously, I flipped through the few CV pages only to find that he had crossed with red ink every single “Middle East” phrase within my CV. Politely, I asked him: “But what is wrong with the Middle East?” He said: “It does not exist, it never existed.”

Burma President Htin Kyaw’s spokesman said on Friday that the government had not yet seen a highly critical UN human rights report on Arakan State.
The UN human rights office issued a report on Friday that said Burma’s security forces have committed mass killings and gang rapes of Muslims and burned their villages since October in a campaign that probably amounts to crimes against humanity and possibly “ethnic cleansing.”
“We will review the report from the UN and we will respond, either in an official statement or in an individual response (to questions),” the president’s office spokesman U Zaw Htay said.

Early this week, my only daughter turned 15. She came downstairs excitedly, reading dozens of birthday messages on her phone. I hugged her tight. As I made her a smoothie, I retold her birth story for the umpteenth time.
She likes to hear that she was born so quickly that I had no chance of an epidural. She was really strong and exploded into the world with a force that was telling, then grew into a feisty toddler and precocious child.
We talked about her plans for the day: lunch at a Chinese restaurant with her favourite cousins, chai and cake in the afternoon with her grandparents, followed by soccer practice.
