Making Noise for Peace: The World Culture Festival in March 2016
Huffington Post - about 1 year
One of my favorite Malcolm X quotes is, "if you want something, you had better make some noise." And rather than violence, what if we dared to make some noise for something as great as peace? Violence gets all the attention, and after the chain of violent acts we had last year - Oregon, Iraq, Syria, Paris, San Bernardino - it feels like time to try something different. Even in the advent of the useful protests that have been happening - over race, immigration, or women's issues - it is the resistance, the anger, and the injustice that is crying out. What if we got together and made a loud cry because we like each other? What if we made a lot of noise because we celebrate diversity? What if we gathered and told the world that we are spiritual, we take care of the environment, we care for people, we love life and want to see it change for the better? What if there was a loud noise in our world that was not violent, not sad, not angry, but that stood on a platform of love, compassi ...

Humayoun Nabi And Ismail Alsarabbi Arrested In NYC For Supporting Taliban With Gear
Huffington Post - over 3 years
NEW YORK -- NEW YORK (AP) — Two men tried to buy boots, winter coats and other gear for Taliban and al-Qaeda soldiers fighting U.S. troops in Afghanistan, authorities said Thursday in announcing state-level terrorism charges. Humayoun Nabi, 32, and Ismail Alsarabbi, 27, were busted after a two-year investigation that involved confidential informants and undercover detectives, police said. Lawyers who represented the men at their initial court appearance this week in Queens said their clients had been manipulated by police. "If you have to spend more than 18 months trying to get someone to send coats and shoes to the people of Afghanistan, and you have all these cops on the case, to me that sounds like entrapment," said Ken Finkelstein, Nabi's attorney. "If you remove the police from this, you have nothing." According to a criminal complaint, Nabi told a confidential informant that he hated the United States and wanted to take a stand. He told the informant he wanted to form a nonp ...
