"To comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable"

Murders in Nice

When the Nice attack was first announce, I am sure I was joined by almost every Muslim in silent prayers that the killer would not be a Muslim but alas, he was! At today’s count, 84 people…men, women and children, were killed and over 200 injured.

 

Who even thinks of wreaking such havoc on innocent people who are out simply enjoying life? The roots of such actions are easy to track even though the answer to the “why” of such actions is much more difficult; the responsibility is shared between the US, the European countries and the Muslims living in the US and Europe, perhaps in equal measure.

FBI…”Trust us”; Manufacturing Terrorism

June 10th, 2016 New Yorker has an excellent article, “Do F.B.I. Stings Help the Fight Against ISIS?“. Tragically, such examples are almost a daily occurrence in the US today.
This is precisely what I rail against. The enforcement agencies ask us Muslims to trust them because they are here to uphold the law and to protect everyone equally; they don’t target Muslims.
 
Sure, now pull the other one.
 
The FBI has been relentless in pursuing Muslims because we are Muslims and because arresting a “Muzlem” justifies their budgets. They pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to stake a Muslim head on a pike in order that the FBI can look like heroes. The FBI trains Police and other enforcement agencies to look upon Islam and Muslims as the greatest threat to the US and to the West and this is no exaggeration.
 
Why should anyone “uphold the law”?

FBI, Police, Fusion Center and Muslims Meet

I was among the community members invited to a meeting with the Seattle Police (SPD…Chief O’Toole present), FBI and Fusion Center (FC…Director, Lt. Trowbridge present) on Tuesday the 3rd of May from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The event was called, “Building Communities of Trust“, there were about six of us Muslims present, the rest were from other groups and communities. The purpose was to introduce and promote the Nationwide SAR (Suspicious Activity Reporting) Initiative also known as the NSI, among the various communities. Part of this program is also the “If you see something, say something” program. Continue reading

Fight the FBI & Immigration’s bid against Muslims in US!

US agencies keep telling us how they treat Muslims as no different from any other people and how they would like to “build bridges” with “The Muslim Community”, but their actions remain diametrically opposite to their rhetoric; they continue to treat Muslims and Islam as the greatest threat to the US and the West. So much so, that the FBI and other agencies actually have trainers on staff, who have trained agents on this bit of brainwashing….even as the FBI continues to tell us they have removed anti-Muslim books from their reference libraries and have stopped such training. Every time the FBI gives us this line of fiction, another expose informs us the it is anti-Muslim business as usual in the FBI and other law-enforcement agencies across the US.
It should not take the brains of a genius to figure out that the FBI is simply retaliating against Kariye, the Portland imam because he dared to join the lawsuit against the government’s discredited “No-Fly List”.

FBI’s War on Muslims Must End

January 2, 2015

Dir. James B. Comey FBI Headquarters 935 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington, D.C. 20535-0001

 

FBI’s War on Muslims Must End

 

Dear Director Comey,

 

For some strange reason, it appears that the FBI is focused on Muslims either as targets or, as paths to targets among Muslims in America. It appears to us that when it comes to targeting Muslims, the FBI is most dedicated in its work, but when it comes to looking after the interests of Muslims in America, the FBI is usually found leading the back of the parade.

 

Muslims are often targeted, coerced or, blackmailed into becoming “informants” who, if they don’t provide lists of suspects, will end up in deeper trouble with the FBI. Even when recently, there was a bomb threat to a local mosque, the local FBI took pains to identify the perpetrator as being a quadriplegic and therefore, not a credible threat. However, it was later discovered that the perpetrator was a healthy person who was never investigated by either the FBI or the local Police.

 

FBI officials are routinely seen with Muslims who hesitate to ask hard questions and who act more to please the FBI than they do, to address concerns of the Muslim public. Not that pleasing the FBI officials is necessarily a bad thing, but to do so while ignoring what the officials are continuing to do against Muslims, reduces their own credibility among Muslims and thus, makes for less effective contacts within the Muslim communities.

My chat with Al Maghrib’s V-P about FBI

Thanks to help from the local  Al Maghrib folks, I was able to contact Sh. Walid Basyouni, Vice-President of Al Maghrib. We had a fairly thorough talk, but in the end, we did not come to any agreement over the honor Al Maghrib is according to the FBI at Ilmfest in Seattle.
When we first started to talk Mr. Basyouni said he wished I had talked to him before I had sent out the general e-mail about Al Maghrib inviting the FBI to Ilmfest Seattle. I told him I did send an e-mail to Al Maghrib asking for Mr. Basyouni to call me but I received no response so I opened the topic to everyone. My point was that as long as the FBI does not trust or respect Muslims and as long as the FBI considers Muslims to be either targets or a path to targets, we cannot offer them opportunities that make it look as if we trust them and we cannot give them opportunities to influence our youth and our impressionable adults. No doubt any such opportunity will be used to turn Muslims into informants or collaborators against other Muslims whose innocence is only a bump on the road for the FBI.

Ilmfest 2015…Muslims & FBI; a dysfunctional relationship

The Al-Maghrib organization has scheduled Ilmfest 2015 to be held in Bellevue on January 11th. I was looking forward to it, thinking of attending and learning from the many male and female speakers presenting at the “Ilmfest” (“knowledgefest”). Then I learnt some more about the “Ilmfest”; the FBI is invited to speak about youth and gangs at this conference where they expect about 1500+ Muslims to attend. Interestingly, the fact that the FBI is invited to speak at the conference seems to have been kept out of their published program for ilmfest 2015.

When Mohammed Buys a Gun

 

Recently a man entered the Jewish Museum in Brussels and opened fire killing three and injuring one before he fled. He was later captured in Paris and discovered to be a French Muslim, he was carrying ammunition for a Kalashnikov “and a white cloth with Arabic writing on it“, among other things.

 

France jumped into action, arresting Muslims who planned to travel to Syria or to any country even close to Syria, believing that these people are looking to fight in Syria and if they survive, they would return to Europe and become trained mass killers…”Jihadis” is the convenient, if misleading term.

 

The main fact here, that fired the imaginations of most, if not every Westerner, is that the man is a Muslim. That fact alone informs the West and Jews especially, that Muslims are out to get them and Muslims will not rest as long as there are “Unbelievers” alive.

 

What a load of rubbish! Continue reading

To the FBI Director: Concerning Muslims

April 30th, 2014

Director James B. Comey

FBI Headquarters
935 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, D.C. 20535-0001

Dear Director Comey,

It was with envy and more than a little dismay, that I read the text of your speech at the ADL National Leadership Summit in Washington, DC.,

 

Envy because a minority group is so well-organized that people of all stripes and ranks visit them and talk at their meetings while heaping praise on the minority group’s works. As a Muslim, I am quite envious of the respect you gave to the ADL, because we haven’t even had the FBI give so much as the time of day to CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations), the only effective Muslim organization that looks after our civil rights. Please note, I am not a member of CAIR, but it has my wholehearted support..

 

To be sure, there are back-door approaches between the FBI and CAIR but that is demeaning to us Muslims. Rather like the old days when Blacks were met at the back door, while Continue reading

Trust, the FBI and Muslims…

Well, the bus ads saga continues and with it, the disappointment and the damage of trust with the FBI grows.

It appears that the FBI is unable or unwilling to get us a straight story and it also appears that the FBI is working hard to divide Muslim up so that one groups lack of dissent can be used against another group’s vigorous dissent.

We are told that the ad-campaign including the objectionable bus ad, is all controlled by the people in the Justice Department, specifically, RewardsForJustice (RFJ) program. Having spoken with the folks at RFJ, I was told in absolutely clear terms that the program was being funded by RFJ, but they had no input in it and it is completely a local Seattle FBI/JTTF program. Even the posters carry an e-signature that identifies them as “Seattle-JTTF Campaign”.

Seattle JTTF campaign

The FBI keeps telling me that they had in fact, discussed it with various members of the Muslim leadership. A few of the people I checked this out with told me they were informed of the program in May but Continue reading
