What’s this? Terrorist cells among Muslims in the United States? Never fear: I’m sure that Ibrahim Hooper and his team at CAIR are hard at work on this right now, working hand-in-glove with American authorities to find these extremists and making it clear in no uncertain terms that such behavior is not compatible with Islam.
What’s that? They’re doing nothing of the kind? They’re focused almost exclusively on backlash attacks against Muslims, real and trumped-up? What are you, some kind of Islamophobe? From WND, with thanks to Cindy:
JERUSALEM — Hamas has cells inside the United States that are technically capable of attacking the country, terrorism experts and senior security officials told WorldNetDaily.
The officials were responding to a WND exclusive interview last week in which Hamas chief Mahmoud al-Zahar warned President Bush’s actions in the Middle East are “placing America in danger.”
“We have information Hamas agents have been on U.S. soil the past few years and that the group may currently have up to 100 agents operating inside America,” said an FBI counterterrorism agent in New York speaking on condition of anonymity since he is not authorized to talk to the media.
The comments reaffirm testimony to the U.S. Senate this past February in which FBI Director Robert Mueller stated, “Although it would be a major strategic shift for Hamas, its United States network is theoretically capable of facilitating acts of terrorism in the United States.”
