Anonymous hackers attack Trump Towers website.

In an exclusive interview with the Sunday Herald, the SNP MP and former First Minister revealed he has signed the parliamentary petition to prevent the would-be US president from setting foot in the UK. Civil rights and religious groups have slammed the decision by a northeastern police union to endorse controversial Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, whose comments on police brutality and calls to restrict U.S immigration for Muslims have sparked outrage across the political spectrum and among minority constituencies.NEW YORK — No other topic has dominated public discussion over the past week like Donald Trump’s call to indefinitely ban Muslims from entering the U.S.

New York: The website for Trump Towers, the Manhattan skyscraper owned by real-estate mogul and Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, has been attacked by activist hacking group Anonymous, which disabled it for a time in protest at his anti-Muslim comments.Mr Balls, who was in the United States as a senior fellow at Harvard University, was on the Morning Joe on MSNBC when he was asked about the British reaction to Donald Trump’s comments.Saba Ahmed, a former congressional candidate from Oregon, is now promoting a new Republican group for Muslims and and has made several appearances on Fox News arguing that GOP candidates should be more welcoming toward Muslims. Salmond’s predecessor, the former Labour First Minister, Jack McConnell, has also backed Nicola Sturgeon’s decision last week to strip Trump of his status as a “Globalscot”. Jason Lydon was part of a group of clergy members who protested the event Thursday during which the New England Police Benevolent Association (NEPBA) announced their endorsement for Trump.

In November, she was on Megyn Kelly’s Fox News show, wearing an American flag hijab that attracted a flurry of attention – pro and con – on social media. “We’re hoping the Republican Muslim Coalition can help them reach their Muslim-American constituents,” Ahmed said Friday in a telephone interview from Washington, D.C., where she now lives.

What he has succeeded in doing is uniting the political establishment, left and right in Britain, in condemning easy solutions that actually will divide and harm and will set back our efforts to combat the ISIL threat.’ Responding to Trump’s inflammatory suggestion, Mr Balls said: ‘I live in London in a community where Muslims, Hindus and Christians, white people and black people all live together and get on. Lydon said he protested to “highlight that Donald Trump is a symptom of a larger system of Islamophobia and white supremacy … and also giving credibility to so many people are responding to his Islamophobia and racism.” He added that there were around 200 protesters outside of the building where the endorsement event was being held.

Mark Zuckerberg, for example, wrote on his Facebook page that Muslims should know they are always welcome at Facebook “and that we will fight to protect your rights and create a peaceful and safe environment for you.” Alnylam Pharmaceuticals Inc. A gnawing sense of dread has helped lift Trump to a new high among Republicans, who will vote in primaries to choose their party’s nominee for the November 2016 presidential election.

Her candidacy attracted attention from bloggers around the country because her website featured a large photo of her in a black hijab under an Islamic prayer in Arabic. Chief Executive Officer John Maraganore said in an interview in his office in Cambridge, Mass., that Trump’s statements were “outlandish” and that his company had a diverse workforce made up of all religions and he cherished and needed that. Anonymous, a loose-knit international network of activist hackers, or “hacktivists”, is famous for launching cyber attacks on groups such as the Islamic State following the attacks in Paris last month that killed 129 people. The US Navy’s $US4 billion futuristic destroyer Zumwalt, which is beginning sea trials in the Atlantic, will be testing high-tech weapons never before seen at sea. Across the UK, Muslims, who are a sizeable part of the community, are as determined to tackle terrorism as anybody else.’ He added: ‘The idea that he would be prevented in coming to America to discuss terrorism with the Mayor of New York because he is a Muslim, it would be astonishing.’

The endorsement angered members of Black Lives Matter, the activist group that burst onto the U.S. political scene to denounce perceived brutality and racial biases in policing amid a spate of police killings of black men over the last year. But representatives of the country’s biggest banks — including Citigroup Inc., Wells Fargo & Co., Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Morgan Stanley and Bank of America Corp. — declined to make executives available for comment. The long anticipated 186-metre-long, 14,043-tonne destroyer has an unconventional pyramid-shaped hull that slopes out at the bottom with a stealthy “tumblehome” design, rather than sloping in like most warships. The Zumwalt — which will receive its “USS” designation when it is christened — is commanded by Navy Captain James Kirk, who shares his name with the fictional Star Trek captain. The sense is that, like many at the top of the Republican Party, corporate leaders are afraid of getting into a Twitter war with Trump and alienating his many followers, despite distaste for his statements. “Businesses will sit on the sidelines unless there’s something truly profound that is threatening their brand or their industry or their product,” said John Hudak, a fellow in governance studies at the Brookings Institution.

The weapon uses electromagnetic (EM) pulses — known as the Lorenz Force — to launch projectiles at Mach 7, or seven times the speed of sound, at targets up to 177 km away. New England is a region rife with White male hatred and this endorsement brings that to light.” Muslim groups throughout New England were also dismayed by the police association’s endorsement of the candidate just a few days after Trump called for the ban on Muslims coming into the country.

But Wendy Schiller, a political scientist at Brown University, said corporations are probably engaged in a risk assessment, measuring Trump’s following within their clientele and wagering that he could still end up irrelevant. Ahmed told The Oregonian/OregonLive that she had been leaning toward Trump because of his economic policies and business skills but had not endorsed him. Malik Khan, the president of the Islamic Center of Boston in Weyland, Massachusetts, wasn’t aware of the news when asked for a comment, but said: “To hear that the Benevolent Association has decided to support him is really sad.” “We’d want to ask obviously if this represents an endorsement just of a single issue from this organization, or if this this is a holistic endorsement which would encompass a Muslim ban in the U.S.” said Dr.

It is still early in the presidential race, she argued, so the backlash for not speaking out is minimal. “Let’s say you do a lot of business in the Southeast. John Robbins, the executive director of the Massachusetts chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. “This kind of endorsement would obviously be a great concern for the Muslim citizens within the jurisdiction of these officers who they’ve sworn to protect.” High-energy EM rail guns, which can be operated by just one person, are expected to be lethal and effective against multiple threats, including enemy warships, small boats, aircraft, missiles and land-based targets.

In a speech announcing his candidacy in June, Trump called Mexicans “rapists” causing NBCUniversal, Univision Communications Inc., Grupo Televisa SAB, Serta and PVH Corp. to break ties with him. Trump ridiculed Senator John McCain for having been captured and tortured in Vietnam, made fun of fellow candidate Carly Fiorina’s appearance and claimed that thousands of people in New Jersey were celebrating the 9/ 11 attacks.

Ahmed said she has also recently met presidential candidates Carly Fiorina, Ben Carson and Ted Cruz at various Republican functions to press her case for better relationships among Republicans and Muslims.
