Quick – – what do you know about the country of Kenya?

That’s the country with the world’s greatest GDP, low inflation and stable employment – – right?

Well, no.

In 2008, the United States had the greatest GDP of any individual country in the world (it came in second behind the 27 nations of the European Union), whereas Kenya produced the world’s 82nd largest GDP. Kenya endured an annual inflation rate of 9.7% in 2008 (current inflation figures for Kenya are unavailable), while the United States recently posted an inflation rate of .1%. And while the United States is currently struggling with an unemployment rate of slightly over 9%, Kenya has suffered for most of this decade with an unemployment rate of roughly 40% (here again, precise, up-to-date figures are unavailable).

The beginning of the end?

Young Muslim women attend a meeting of Sisters Empowering Sisters on Staten Island in 2007.

It’s not easy having to choose between religion and education. Some would even say it’s not fair.

But for those people whose religious holidays aren’t recognized by the public school system, that’s the choice they have to make.

Yesterday, the City Council’s Education Committee advocated to eliminate that dilemma — at least for Muslim families. The committee passed a resolution that would call upon the city Department of Education to incorporate two major Muslim holidays into the school calendar. The committee has also been pushing for the introduction of a state law that would require schools to close on those two days.

Even as Ayatollah Khamenei blasted the United States for fomenting unrest in a defiant Friday prayer address in Tehran, President Obama has kept silent, focusing instead on domestic policy.

Obama spent more time with TV personality Stephen Colbert, taping a segment for a comedy show, than he did addressing the turmoil in Iran this week.

Newsmax has learned that the Obama administration also has zeroed out funding for pro-democracy programs inside Iran from the State Department budget for fiscal 2010, just as protests in Iran are ramping up.

Funding for pro-democracy programs began in 2004, when Congress earmarked $1.5 million of the State Department budget for “educational, humanitarian, and non-governmental organizations and individuals inside Iran to support the advancement of democracy and human rights in Iran.”
