Denny Chin, the district judge that convicted Madoff to the maximun sentence of 150 years in jail, called his Ponzi fraud, “extraordinarily evil.” Federal prosecutors estimated that Madoff caused 65 billion dollars in losses to his clients.

    It is still to be seen how much the United States worked to “free” Afghanistan. However, this is an excellent example of bigotry (see “Lexicon”) of some of the very cynical, extremist factions present in modern day Islam. The religious persecution of Christians is also present in other Arab countries but it does not characterize all Muslims.
