Editor: So, are you still a journalist or a novelist?
Tom Friend: Same thing out here….
Editor: Make something out of it. And if you can’t do that, sir, then make it up! — From the cinematic classic Masked and Anonymous
In reality, hate crimes against Muslims are infrequent:
And so in order to deflect attention away from jihad activity and try to portray Muslims as victims, so as to shame non-Muslims into not investigating or even being suspicious of further jihad activity, Islamic supremacist groups have resorted to making it up. Hamas-linked CAIR and other Muslims have not hesitated to fabricate “hate crimes.” CAIR and other groups like it want and need hate crimes against Muslims, because they can use them for political points and as weapons to intimidate people into remaining silent about the jihad threat.
And so if they can’t find enough real stories to fill out this new website, they can always call on a few novelists.
“Website aims to show post-9/11 discrimination against Muslims, Sikhs,” from CNN, September 5 (thanks to Ab):
(CNN) – Showcasing alleged hate crimes, physical threats and profiling, a diverse group of ethnic organizations has coalesced to bring attention to what they call discrimination against Arabs, Muslims, Sikhs and others in the wake of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
The project, titled “Unheard Voices of 9/11,” officially launched online Friday with a call for people to share their experiences about being discriminated, targeted and demoralized because of their spiritual and cultural beliefs. […]
Some memories posted on unheardvoicesof911.org are from the days immediately after the attacks. Within six days of the attacks, the FBI reported that it initiated 40 hate crime investigations into alleged murders, attacks and arson directed at Americans who are Muslims, South Asians and Arabs. […]
Rabia Sajid described a man pulling up in a car in New York and yelling, “Go back to your country, otherwise I’m going to kill you.” She said the pastor of a church where she was being tutored, and later police, suggested the best thing to do was not wear her Muslim headscarf so she wouldn’t be targeted – something her parents likewise promoted, for her safety.
The New York resident, who is affiliated with the South Asian Youth Action group, said one of her biggest regrets is that she and others took that advice – not wearing clothing that was part of her Muslim heritage, for fear of being discriminated against.
“We didn’t face the problem, but we were running away from it by trying to change our identity and who we are,” Sajid said at an August hearing in New York City, portions of which are now on the “Unheard Voices” website. “We don’t know how to face the problem … I don’t know what we can do.”
There have been several high-profile cases of alleged hate crimes and cases in which Muslims and Sikhs faced opposition to projects due to their religion and heritage.
One that received significant international attention was Park 51, an Islamic community center proposed for two blocks from ground zero in Lower Manhattan. Many city residents opposed the effort, characterizing the location of the center – which would mostly house cultural, social and recreational programs, as well as a prayer space – as inappropriate given lingering feelings about Muslim militants’ role in the 9/11 attacks. […]
Whatever CNN says, opposing the Islamic supremacist victory mosque at Ground Zero is not a hate crime.
Anoop Prasad, a northern California resident who works for the Asian Law Caucus, said he’s known many people who have been visited in recent years by FBI agents, claiming that such treatment sows widespread distrust against authorities among Muslims and others.
“In my community, people are very afraid – that’s the reality,” he said.
You’d think non-Muslims would be afraid. There was Naser Abdo, the would-be second Fort Hood jihad mass murderer; and Khalid Aldawsari, the would-be jihad mass murderer in Lubbock, Texas; and Muhammad Hussain, the would-be jihad bomber in Baltimore; and Mohamed Mohamud, the would-be jihad bomber in Portland; and Nidal Hasan, the successful Fort Hood jihad mass-murderer; and Faisal Shahzad, the would-be Times Square jihad mass-murderer; and Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, the Arkansas military recruiting station jihad murderer; Naveed Haq, the jihad mass murderer at the Jewish Community Center in Seattle; Mohammed Reza Taheri-Azar, the would-be jihad mass murderer in Chapel Hill, North Carolina; and Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the would-be Christmas airplane jihad bomber; or so many other jihad murderers and would-be murderers in America. Because of these Muslims and others like them, many non-Muslims are very afraid — that’s the reality.
