US Muslim Coalition Warn They Will Boycott FBI

Shame on the FBI for going undercover in mosques in search of radicals.

The Muslim groups are also upset that the Messiah promised better relations with Muslims saying - "he hasn't delivered on his promise".....yet
( A U.S. coalition of major Islamic organizations is threatening to stop cooperating with the FBI because of what it says is anti-Muslim bias by the federal arm and the “targeting” of American Muslims.

In a statement, the American Muslim Taskforce on Civil Rights and Elections (AMT) cited in particular an incident in California, in which it says that “the FBI sent a convicted criminal to pose as an agent provocateur” in several mosques. A federal agent allegedly told one of the mosque-goers that the FBI would make his life a "living hell" if he did not agree to become an informant.

“Muslims are law-abiding and productive citizens who uphold the democratic principles of freedom, equality and justice,” AMT contended.[...]

AMT’s recent statement protested the 2007 designation of Muslim groups such as CAIR, the Islamic society of North America (ISNA) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), as "unindicted co-conspirators" in the Holy Land Foundation trial in Dallas, Texas.[...]

The FBI defended its decision to spy in mosques. “What matters to the FBI is preventing a massive attack,” said former counterterrorism chief Robert Blitzer. Mosques and other religious institutions are of particular concern, he added, because potential terrorists could consider them a safe place to plot attacks
Interesting tidbit buried at end of article:
In the case in question, the FBI's undercover work led to the arrest of 34-year-old Ahmadullah Niazi, a native of Afghanistan who has a brother-in-law working for Osama bin Laden.

Niazi was recorded talking favorably about gathering weapons, blowing up buildings, and sending money to Afghan terrorists, and suggested that the FBI informant undergo terrorist training in Yemen or Pakistan, the FBI says. Muslim groups have suggested that the FBI arrested Niazi because he refused to become an informant.
Just how naive do these groups think we are? Some of us don't have our head up our arses.
