Silverstein also released an email exchange between a city official and an attorney for the developers in which they discussed a 2010 California state survey http://blog.bitcomet.com/post/3828225/ that showed a fault could run under the project site. "These are smoking gun emails," Silverstein said. "The city and developer have been claiming that no evidence shows an earthquake fault across the property." One problem is that nobody knows for certain exactly where the Hollywood Fault lies. A state survey to properly map it is not due to be completed until the end of this year. Luke Zamperini, from the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety, denied Silverstein's allegations. "No one is trying dress like kim kardashian to hide anything," he said. "We have seen no evidence that the project is on the fault.

By contrast, the city is requiring the developers of a nearby skyscraper development known as Millennium Hollywood to conduct an intense investigation to look for the fault, including digging a trench. If any part of a fault is found directly under a proposed project in a state-mapped zone, owners would generally be barred from building within 50 feet, according to the landmark Alquist-Priolo act passed after the 1971 Sylmar quake. The head of the California Geological Survey, John Parrish, told The Times on Friday that it would be prudent for any developer that close to the Hollywood fault to dig a trench to locate it. "For a number of years, it's been known that the Hollywood fault is an active fault," Parrish said. "And if you can see these fault scarps on the surface, we would think that the prudent thing to do would be to err on the side of caution and do a site investigation. "If one intends to build in this zone," he said, "you need to know exactly where that fault trace is." The section of Blvd6200 closest to the fault includes 500 apartments and 74,000 square feet of shop and restaurant space. It borders the foot of a steep slope north of Carlos Avenue that is well-documented evidence of the Hollywood fault's location.

Meanwhile, some Clinton associates are just as wary and also would be happy if both projects fell by the wayside. They might get half their wish: One industry insider with strong Democratic ties but no links to either project says that while the CNN documentary seems likely to happen, the NBC drama seems much less certain. "My bet is it'll get too partisan too fast, and these guys won't know how to sort their way through it," he says. NBC might have laid the groundwork for that with an Aug.

I consider it a gift from God." "I consider Adhan [call to prayer] to be the only moment that I reach a great purity, he added. My aim is not to be a leader or in the foreground, but I just want to perform my religious duty like any ordinary person, and I am not seeking more than this." Bin Youcef acknowledges that "conciliation between being a Muslim and my work as an actor in Hollywood is very challenging. It requires a huge effort, but the challenge is ongoing." He believes that people in Hollywood "are not on the same level of perceiving a person and his culture.

"In Hollywood there is the good, evil and ugly, you just need to choose who to work with, he said. So I always prefer to work with those who look at things positively." Bin Youcef is known for performances that are mostly related to extremism and Islam. He talked about the atmosphere that has prevailed lately in the United States and the way Americans look at Islam and Muslims.
