Russian Muslims Fear Backlash Over Moscow Airport Bombing….

Tomorrow’s headlines today:

Muslims in Russia are in fear of a new wave of Islamophobia, bigotry, racism and xenophobia over a Zionist suicide  bombing  that killed 35 and wounded more than 100 people at Moscow’s Domodedovo International Airport.

Russian secret police are looking for Mossad and CIA agents …

Fill in the rest.

Like clockwork: Muslims highlight “backlash” fears ahead of congressional show-trial on “radicalization” (JW)

Never mind the fact that Rep. Peter King’s hearings have already been sanitized of almost all potential criticism of Islamic teachings, and that the deliberate exclusion of controversial points of view will doom those hearings to be a pointlessly ritualistic display of Congress looking busy.

Even so, standard operating procedures are kicking in among King’s Muslim constituents. We see this every time Islam comes under scrutiny, particularly in the wake of an attempted act of jihad. Muslim groups aim to deflect any criticism of Islam or attention to conduct by Muslims that brings bad publicity by shifting the focus and casting Muslims as victims or potential victims of “Islamophobia.”

The implication is that all criticism of Islam that can’t be neutralized with a little one-way “dialogue” can only be motivated by hate. Seething, bilious, irrational, and unstable hatred, that makes speaking ill of Islam tantamount to incitement. It is an emotional ploy to silence legitimate and well substantiated concerns about jihad, immigration, and Sharia law.

“Long Island Muslims fear their congressman’s hearings could flame [sic] Islamophobia,” by William Wan for the Washington Post, January 24:

WESTBURY, N.Y. – They called it a summit to teach Muslims how to fight prejudice and fear. But all day long, fear was inescapable in the fluorescent-lit meeting hall of the Long Island mosque.

One begins to wonder if there isn’t a stock, Mad-Libs sort of template for these stories on the hard drives of major news organizations. Just fill in the names, places, and the grievance du jour.

The top issue on everyone’s mind this month at the Islamic Center of Long Island was this: What could be done to stop planned congressional hearings on alleged hidden radicalism among American Muslims and mosques?

The House hearings, scheduled to begin next month, have touched off a wave of panic throughout the U.S. Muslim community, which has spent much of the past year battling what it sees as a rising tide of Islamophobia. Conference calls, strategy sessions and letter-writing campaigns have been launched. Angry op-eds have compared the congressional inquiry to McCarthyism and the World War II persecution of Japanese Americans.

But for those who gathered at the Long Island mosque, the coming hearings represented not just a political issue, but a personal one. For the man organizing the hearings was the very lawmaker who was supposed to represent them in Washington – Rep. Peter T. King (R-N.Y.). Long before he had become their enemy, he had been one of their community’s closest friends.

“He used to come to our weddings. He ate dinner in our homes,” said the mosque’s chairman, Habeeb Ahmed, a short medical technologist with graying hair sitting near the front. “Everything just changed suddenly after 9/11, and now he’s holding hearings to say that people like us are radical extremists. I don’t understand it.” […]

On the contrary, it looks like he’s bending over backwards to exclude the most substantive criticism of Islam at its primary sources.

Although no member of the Islamic Center has ever been accused of terrorism, King has singled out the mosque as a hotbed of “radical Islam” and called its leaders extremists who should be put under surveillance. He maintains that most Muslim leaders in this country aren’t cooperating with authorities, even as arrests of homegrown terrorists are rising greatly.

Now, as the new chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, King said he is finally in a position to do something about it.

“My first goal is just to have people even acknowledge this as a real issue,” King said. “This politically correct nonsense has kept us from debating and discussing what is one of this country’s most vital issues. We are under siege by Muslim terrorists.”

Steve Emerson and Robert Spencer would be happy to help “acknowledge this as a real issue.” They’ve been doing it for years.

Anyway, cue the violins:

For years, such statements by King have provoked anger among Muslims in his district, but with the hearings looming, there is also a sense of shame and regret.Long Island Muslims worry that what began long ago as a broken relationship between them and their congressman could soon pose a threat to the entire U.S. Muslim community.

And there you have it. Criticism = incitement = danger: Q.E.D.

  1. So where are the protests from the so-called “moderate” Muslims? They sit there quietly, approvingly, using al taqiyya and are therefore totally complicit in the actions of the violent jihadists.. they realise that jihad has many, many faces.. and smiling to themselves as the dhimmi liberal west “blames da jooz” or blames the US/Brit-led invasion of Iraq or Afghanistan… or blames a cartoonist for drawing Mohammed.. until the useful idiots in western governments stop kowtowing to Islamic demands, and start to undestand that Islam is an imperialist, supermacist ideology whose aim is worldwide domination and rule, and the sooner that the IDEOLOGY of Islam is recognised as the enemy rather than a bunch of beardies with rocket launchers and improvised IEDs, then the sooner that enemy (the ideology) can be tackled in the west.

  2. Strange isn’t it the world most violent Hate and Death CULT is forever thinking of itself as a whingeing whining VICTIM.

    More Than Meets The Eye

    Gadi Adelman

    Chris Christie, former U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey, the poster child of the Republican party, a true conservatives conservative. People everywhere were asking if we would run for President in 2012.

    Chris Christie was sworn in as New Jersey’s 55th Governor on January 19, 2010 and got right to work. He is out there trying to save his state, going head to head with the teachers union, cutting the budget and doing what he promised he would do when he was campaigning.

    So when all the negative articles and blogs starting on January 14th about his appointment of a Muslim lawyer to the Superior Court of N.J. I had ask myself why? So, the guys a Muslim, so he defended alleged terrorists, so what – isn’t that what lawyers are supposed to do?
    The headlines were all over the place, here are just a few:

    NJ Governor Chris Christie nominates a MUSLIM lawyer who represented Islamic terrorist suspects for Superior Court Judgeship
    New Jersey Governor Christie’s dirty ties to Hamas-linked Islamic supremacists
    “Et tu” Christie? Is There ANY Politician Who Will Stand Against Islam?

    And so it went. Strong words “ties to Hamas”?

    I gave him the benefit of the doubt, I even argued with my ‘America Akbar’ radio co-host Jan, I told her “it was probably just ignorance on his part; he doesn’t understand Islam or Sharia”. But Jan would not back down, not that she ever does. “No! He was on my short list for 2012, not anymore” she shot back.

    We decided to try and get Governor Christie on the show so he could explain the appointment, his reasons and mostly so he could defend himself.

    I contacted the Governor’s office in Trenton, N.J. and got his ‘Press Office’ on the phone. After the introductions I explained why I was calling. “The Governor doesn’t do interviews about individual appoints” is what I was told.

    I explained that “in this case he may want to rethink that, there were a lot of people that were supporters who have written him off, I personally was receiving dozens of emails from people calling him a traitor.”

    I was asked to hold on for a minute and when the gentleman came back he asked for my contact info and told me that “someone would be in touch via email that day.”

    I waited until 4:45 that afternoon and still had not received anything. I called back and this time I spoke to Mr. Hunter. He apologized to me after I explained the situation, re-took my info and assured me I would receive an email before day’s end. It would contain all the information on Sohail Mohammed as well as who, if anyone, would be coming on my radio show.

    I contacted Mr. Hunter the next morning after, yes, you guessed it, I had received absolutely nothing.

    This time he told me “the person from upstairs that was supposed to bring the info to be emailed to me never dropped it off.” He said he would “contact them and get everything right out to me.”

    I told Hunter, “At this point I really don’t care about the email, I want to know if Governor Christie is going to be a guest on the show and if not, what representative would be?”

    Hunter stated, “I can tell you that unfortunately the Governor will not be able to be on your show, but I will see who we can get. You will get the email explaining everything today”.

    Once again I waited, this time I called Hunter back at 4:30. He told me “here comes the info I was waiting for right now, I’ll get this straight out to you.”

    Well needless to say, I have yet to receive anything. So much for the “transparency” Christie had promised during his run for office.

    I always work off write about things that I can back up with facts and what better fact than the person in question, in this case, Governor Christie himself. I gave the governor and his “Press Office” the chance to explain themselves and when that didn’t happen I started my research.

    Let’s start at the beginning. Christie apparently met Sohail Mohammed at an annual Ramadan dinner at the American Muslim Union (AMU).

    NJ governor Chris Christie and Sohail Mohammed talk at the American Muslim Union.

    One of Sohail Mohammed’s clients is the radical imam Mohammed Qatanani, the head of New Jersey’s largest mosque, the Islamic Center of Passaic County. In 2008, while Christie was the U.S. Attorney for N.J. the Department of Homeland Security initiated deportation proceedings against the imam, because Qatanani was alleged to be connected with Hamas.

    So what did Christie do? The very night before the immigration judge was to announce his decision regarding Sohail Mohammed’s client, U.S. Attorney Chris Christie praised the defendant. Yes, he praised him saying “My view is he’s always had a very good relationship with us, and he’s a man of great goodwill.” Where did Christie make this statement? He announced it at a Ramadan break-fast dinner.

    Terror expert Steve Emerson explained it this way,

    Qatanani has a history of Hamas support and was related by marriage to a leading Hamas operative in the West Bank. This fall, Qatanani will return to a New Jersey immigration court, where the Department of Homeland Security is fighting to have him deported. In his initial application for a green card filed in 1999, government lawyers say Qatanani failed to disclose a conviction in an Israeli military court for being a Hamas member and providing support to the terrorist group.

    Oddly, Christie — a Republican who was then the U.S. Attorney for New Jersey — sided with Qatanani against DHS, allowing a top lieutenant, Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles McKenna, to testify as a character witness at Qatanani’s first immigration trial, and publicly embracing the imam at a Ramadan breakfast at his mosque. Christie later appointed McKenna as New Jersey’s head of homeland security…

    The U.S. Attorney’s office was not a party to the case, Christie said, and his praise for Qatanani was not meant to be “a commentary on the dispute between the imam and DHS” but after 9/11, he found the imam “to be a constructive force in attempting to strengthen our relations with that community.”

    Christie found Qatanani After 9/11 to be “attempting to strengthen our relations with that community.”? Where was he before 9/11?

    Daniel Greenfield wrote this on his website Sultan Knish,

    Passaic County has the second largest Muslim population in the country. And the Islamic Center of Passaic County is the state’s largest mosque, and it’s the only one run by an Imam who was a member of the Hamas terrorist organization. But when the United States government attempted to deport Mohammed Qatanani, New Jersey’s pols and wannabe pols like Christie, quickly came to his aid. Despite the fact that Mohammed Qatanani was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization that is behind both Al Qaeda and Hamas, despite his own guilty plea to being a member of Hamas, and despite the fact that even in the United States, he had defended a charity that provided funds to children of suicide bombers (this is done as an incentive to reassure terrorists that if they die their families will be taken care of), Qatanani was not deported.

    Conservative New Jersey website had this to say,

    “The first Imam of the Islamic Center of Passaic County, Mohammad El-Mezain, was convicted of funneling money to Hamas. El-Mezain had actually boasted of raising almost 2 million dollars for Hamas. And his replacement, Qatanani, actually was a member of Hamas. An ordinary politician might have been forgiven for not knowing this, but Christie was the US Attorney for New Jersey. It’s absolutely impossible that he would not have known the background of the Islamic Center of Passaic County. Yet Christie attended a Ramadan dinner, in the same place where terrorists had fundraised, and kissed Qatanani on the cheek.”

    “Publicly embraced him”, “kissed him”? Back in August last year, Christie made the following statement when speaking about the Ground Zero mosque,

    “Given my last position, that I was the first U.S. attorney post-9/11 in New Jersey, I understand acutely the pain and sorrow and upset of the family members who lost loved ones that day at the hands of radical Muslim extremists,” Christie said. “And their sensitivities and concerns have to be taken into account. Just because it’s nearly nine years later, those sensitivities cannot and should not be ignored.

    “On the other hand, we cannot paint all of Islam with that brush. … We have to bring people together. And what offends me the most about all this, is that it’s being used as a political football by both parties. And what disturbs me about the president’s remarks is that he is now using it as a political football as well. I think the president of the United States should rise above that. And should not be using this as a political football, and I don’t believe that it would be responsible of me to get involved and comment on this any further because it just put me in the same political arena as all of them.”

    “But it would be wrong to so overreact to that, that we paint Islam with a brush of radical Muslim extremists that just want to kill Americans because we are Americans. But beyond that … I am not going to get into it, because I would be guilty of candidly what I think some Republicans are guilty of, and the president is now, the president is guilty of, of playing politics with this issue, and I simply am not going to do it.”

    “But it would be wrong to so overreact to that, that we paint Islam with a brush of radical Muslim extremists that just want to kill Americans because we are Americans.” Islam was painted with that brush because of its own words and book, the Quran.

    Sohail Mohammed’s most famous clients would be “The Fort Dix Six”, the group of would-be Islamic terrorists from Yugoslavia and the Middle East who were plotting to shoot up the Fort Dix military base in N.J. in January 2006.

    Mohammed was extremely outspoken about the phrase “Islamic militants” in the case. “Don’t equate actions with religion,” he said.

    He also publicly defended the Palestinian Islamic Jihad operative Sami Al-Arian after his 2003 indictment that alleged he was the North American leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
    Sami Al-Arian, a professor at the University of South Florida, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring to provide goods and services to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. At his sentencing, the federal judge said the evidence was clear he was “a leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. You were on the board of directors and an officer, the secretary. Directors control the actions of an organization, even the PIJ; and you were an active leader.”

    During an interview on MSNBC Sohail Mohammed stated,

    “It all points out to the distrust that the Muslim community have, which is this is nothing but a witch-hunt,” he said. “This is nothing but a politically motivated indictment, and all you are waiting for is the right opportunity to indict the person, the climate is right.”

    Mohammed had an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, two months after 9/11,

    MATTHEWS: What else do they have in common, the people who blew up the World Trade Center and attacked the Pentagon? What else do they have in common?
    MOHAMMED: All male.
    MATTHEWS: Keep going. If you’re a policeman, you have got to use your brain here. What else do they have in common? They all come from Middle Eastern countries. They’re all Islamic zealots.
    MOHAMMED: Well, you cannot call them — and anybody who professes or who says that he believes in a religion, a peaceful religion, cannot take the banner and crash a plane, and you blame every single person who follows this faith.

    They are not “extremists,” they are being good Muslims following the words of the Quran. Daniel Greenfield also made some other connections,

    Sohail Mohammed is a board member of the American Muslim Union, an organization that has interlocking leadership with groups that have fundraised for Hamas and hosted a Hamas speaker. The American Muslim Union is closely interlinked with Qatanani’s Islamic Center of Passaic County.

    Let’s see where the “fair and impartial” future Judge Sohail Mohammed really stands. Our future Judge is a board member of the American Muslim Union, where he and Governor Christie first met. Here is what the Jewish World Review had to say about the AMU back in 2004 when the UJA Federation of Bergen County and North Hudson and the Jewish Community Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of New Jersey had an issue with them,

    Though the American Muslim Union appears moderate in its official literature — saying it is “dedicated to serving the American Muslim community and its unique needs” — the organization has interlocking leadership with a group that has allegedly raised funds for Hamas and hosted as a guest speaker last year an alleged Hamas member.

    Although the ties to Hamas are allegations — El-Mezain nor anyone else affiliated with AMU or ICPC has been arrested — AMU has co-sponsored several rallies that any genuinely moderate groups would not associate themselves with. Chief among these rallies is one held in Times Square in April 2002, which called for, among other things, an end to the Israeli “massacres” of Palestinians.

    To judge for yourself, look at a flyer promoting the event by clicking here. The headline is “Stop Palestinian Genocide” and features an obviously forged photo of a baby lying in a pool of blood in a hospital bed. There may be many legitimate debates among reasonable, moderate people about Israel’s treatment of Palestinians, but there are no widespread “massacres,” nor is there any “genocide” of Palestinians. It is wildly false to claim either.

    The 5th sponsor listed on the above mentioned poster is the AMU. Would Sohail Mohammed be fair and impartial as a Superior Court Judge when the defendant in his court is a fellow Muslim?

    According to the Investigative Project on Terrorism,

    The AMU has criticized some of the response to the September 11 attacks, especially regarding the PATRIOT Act. Explaining why the AMU had become more politically active and was holding voter registration drives, one employee of AMU said: “Right now, the Patriot Act—basically it’s unconstitutional…I believe it targets Muslims unfairly. If someone’s going to come out with a bill that’s discriminatory, I’m not going to vote for them.”

    As general counsel to the American Muslim Union (AMU), Mohammed often represented clients subject to government allegations concerning terrorists. The AMU often is highly critical of U.S. counter-terrorism efforts.

    One online newsletter even included a claim that a “Zionist commando orchestrated the 9/11 terrorist attacks” and shows support for a “Rabbi” from the extremist Jewish organization Neturei Karta, which denies the right of Israel to exist and supports its dismantling.

    I had written back in August about a case in N.J. where the Judge based his decision in a rape and assault case on the fact that the defendant was a Muslim,

    Here is what the Judge wrote for his decision on a restraining order following a finding of domestic violence:

    “This court does not feel that, under the circumstances, that this defendant had a criminal desire to or intent to sexually assault or to sexually contact the plaintiff when he did. The court believes that he was operating under his belief that it is, as the husband, his desire to have sex when and whether he wanted to, was something that was consistent with his practices and it was something that was not prohibited.”

    Luckily, an Appellate Court overturned that Judge’s findings, but if Sohail Mohammed gets confirmed as a Superior Court Judge, how many more findings will we see like this in the county of Passaic that has the second largest Muslim community in the country?

    This is an extremely dangerous appointment that not only puts New Jersey at the doorstep of Sharia law, but has me wondering where Christie truly stands.

  4. If I were a fee paying member of an organisation, and some of that organisation committed a crime – I would would expect that organisation to take measures to insure that no other members are criminal.
    Should the leaders of the organisation disassociate itself publicly from these deeds and inform all members that such behaviour is criminal, then I would be upset if there were any ‘backlash’ on other members.

    When however, the crime is done in the name of – and to the glory of – the organisation. I would leave.
    Yes, I know, in islamic countries they cannot leave. But here in the west – EVERY muslim wearing islamic clothing is proclaiming their association and approval of islamic terrorism.
    While there is rarely ever backlash, if I said to the mother of a killed child that I approved of the killer’s motives, I should expect broken teeth at the least.
