"every maori social group had its own body of traditional belief which validated its claims to the territory it occupied, gave authority to those of high rank, and justified the group's external relationships with other groups. these purposes were served because the members of the groups concerned believed that the traditions were true records of past events, and they acted accordingly. alliances between groups we

watchdog: number of anti-muslim hate groups on the rise


washington — the number of anti-muslim hate groups in the united states has nearly tripled since 2015, due in part to radical islamic attacks and the incendiary rhetoric of last year's presidential campaign, the southern poverty law center says.the number of anti-muslim groups increased from 34 in 2015 to 101 in 2016, the splc said in a report released wednesday. the number of hate groups overall tracked by the watchdog group also increased to 917 last year from 892 the previous year, the report said."2016 was an unprecedented year for hate," said mark potok, a senior fellow at the southern poverty law center.the report blamed the increase in part on "incendiary rhetoric" from the campaign of now-president donald trump, which included threats to ban muslim immigrants and "mandate a registr
