Redwood City, Calif – A lawmaker urged the Federal Bureau of Investigations to ramp up surveillance of Muslim communities, following the Boston bombings. CNN”s Carol Costello reports that Rep. Peter King (R-NY) said it is imperative for authorities to focus on religious communities.
“Most Muslims are outstanding people, but the threat is coming from the Muslim community. Just yesterday, Tom Friedman, who is certainly no conservative, said we must ask the question only Muslims can answer. What is going on in your community that a critical number of your youth believes every American military action in the Middle East justifies a violent response? It’s coming from the community,” King said.

Nasser Weddady, who sits as a director of the American Islamic Congress in Boston disagrees.

Nine days after the 9/11 attacks, Weddady said that he was detained by police, put in a cell for five hours and then interrogated. He said he was a victim of what King is suggesting — racial profiling.

“Understand that not all Muslims look a certain way, not all Muslims are religious, and that most Muslims belong to different sects and different faith traditions,” he said.

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) said King was making a mistake with calls to profile the Islamic community in the United States, adding that it may divert attention away from other threats.

“We don’t have enough law enforcement resources to just go after one community, and, remember, we went after a community in World War II. And the Japanese interment is a national stain on our country, and we are still apologizing for it,” he said.

    the muslims in general do not answer for themselves, they don’t have to, the lefty, progressive democrats answer and support them, just like the muslims, democrats are in total denial terrorism is tied to the muslims, but to other else, despite the facts present itself all the terrorism sustained by america were from jihadists of palestinian’s hamas, iraq’s al qaeda, etc. democrats political posturing to compare the japanese act of war then was specific to a country, while the muslims intermittent unknown act of terror, like a stab in the back terroristic acts are the teaching of islamist religion, not specific to a country.

      Why do we pretend that Muslims are Ok in OUR country and especially in our military? Why are we so worried about profiling? The safety of AMERICANS far outweighs the risk of “insult” to a group whose religion advocates and actually KILLS AMERICANS. If they don’t like being insulted then they should stay in their own God forsaken country and do whatever the hell they want to each other but not to AMERICANS. We simply cannot accommodate everybody here.

      Violence, rape, murdering Non Muslims is the religion of Islam. Playing with bombs finding the next way to inflict the greatest number of deaths and casualties to ordinary Non Muslims is the religion of Islam. Hatred for infidels and women is the religion of Islam. Expansion and conquering and then destroying other cultures is the religion of Islam. Discrimination and classifying non Muslims as second class citizens is the religion of Islam. Looting and robbing is the religion of Islam.

      World is witnessing terrorism today thanks to islamic quran. This is happening for the past 1400 years ago. Then Muslim leader in USA made this very chilling quote… Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Quran . . . should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.

    There’s a distinct difference between Muslims in general and Muslim Extremists, etc. Even some Muslims condemns the acts of other Muslims. Please do not belittle other religion as NOT ALL Muslims are born to terrorize the world. Just like other religion, each has its own issues. It’s people like you Delia that should hold your grounds and let it sink because its people like you who adds fire to the fuel. Everyone has their freedom of speech, to choose their own religion and so to their own beliefs. But I am sure you would not want to be told the same as what you said to the Muslim world. Ang basurang itinapon mo ay babalik din sa iyo…. Lingon lingon sa pinanggalingan para mabuksan ang isip….

      Av , Why dont scram and stop your idiocacy . We must never believe that a part of Islam is taught to be peaceful while a more fundamental group of Muslims are taught to murder. This lie comes from the left in the form of political correctness to cover up the truth about Islam.

      This is not to say that all Muslim people are murderous, but those that do not kill infidels (people of other religions) are not practicing jihad as they are taught to do. The Muslims that are commonly referred to by the media as fundamental extremists are doing exactly what the Quran teaches them to do by killing infidels. If a Muslim does not practice jihad, which results in the subjugation and killing of infidels, he/she is not doing as Allah commanded.

      The goal of Muslim jihad against people of other religions is to force conversion to Islam or “be put to the sword’ (killed).

      As an American in a country who supports our first amendment right, freedom of speech, I say call a spade a spade, especially after the facts are confirmed .

      Qur’an:8:7 “Allah wished to confirm the truth by His words: ‘Wipe the infidels out to the last.

      Qur’an:8:12 “Your Lord inspired the angels with the message: ‘I am with you. Give firmness to the Believers. I will terrorize the unbelievers. Therefore smite them on their necks and every joint and incapacitate them. Strike off their heads and cut off each of their fingers and toes.

      Qur’an:8:15 “Believers, when you meet unbelieving infidels in battle while you are marching for war, never turn your backs to them. If any turns his back on such a day, unless it be in a stratagem of war, a maneuver to rally his side, he draws on himself the wrath of Allah, and his abode is Hell, an evil refuge.
      Qur’an:8:39 “So, fight them till all opposition ends and the only religion is Islam.

      Qur’an:8:59 “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them. They are your enemy and Allah’s enemy.

      Qur’an:8:60 “And make ready against the infidels all of the power you can, including steeds of war .
      Qur’an:9:5 “When the sacred forbidden months for fighting are past, fight and kill disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, beleaguer them, and lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.
      Qur’an:9:41 “March forth (equipped) with light or heavy arms. Strive with your goods and your lives in the Cause of Allah. That is best for you.
      Qur’an:61:14 “O Muslims! Be helpers of Allah…We gave power to those who believed against their enemies, and they prevailed.
      Qur’an:33:22 “When the faithful saw the retreating allied armies this enhanced their faith and obedience…Allah drove the infidels back in their fury so that their resistance was futile.

      Islam permits Muslims to lie and cheat, it is necessary, to further the cause of Islam. Like Allah, they can also “deceive” the Unbelievers for the sake of Islam ( The Quran; 3:54).

      Terrorized: 8:12 Then your Lord spoke to His angels and said, “I will be with you. Give strength to the believers. I will send terror into the kafirs’ hearts, cut off their heads and even the tips of their fingers!”

      Annihilated: 6:45 So the kafirs were annihilated. All praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds!

      A Muslim is not the friend of a kafir: 3:28 Believers should not take kafirs as friends in preference to other believers. Those who do this will have none of Allah’s protection and will only have themselves as guards. Allah warns you to fear Him for all will return to Him.

      Unclean: 9:28 Oh, believers, only the kafirs are unclean.

      The Quran defines the kafir and kafir is not a neutral word. A kafir is not merely someone who does not agree with Islam, but a kafir is evil, disgusting, and the lowest form of life. Kafirs can be tortured, killed, lied to and cheated. So the usual word “unbeliever” does not reflect the political reality of Islam.

      Shout it out to all who will listen. Every word was derived from the Qur’an. We are reffered as Kafir , infidel and non-believer.

        @Delia – The Quran, just like the Bible has other versions. You depicted this quotes from a Quran of Muslim extremists. Please do not quote from such books for it often is confusing and has several versions. It’s people like you that would likely be killed and murdered for your stupid ignorance. I’ d rather be a smart ass than a smart ignorant.

    this a…hole moronic D-MN congressman keith ellison represent the true idiocy of the democratic party, talking to the public as if people are as stupid as he is. to pull a stunt of what the US government did the isolations of the japanese, after pearl harbor bombing circa 1941. japanese internment were done by the democrats POTUS FDR/truman. finally, harry truman ordered to drop the atomic bomb to hiroshima to end WW2. the circumstances event then are way to different, first internment is confinement, how can this stupid democrat congressman compare such simple word – internment to surveillance which is a process of prevention via monitoring of anticipated crimes, directed to a person, persons or groups with probable cause. SHAME on this despicable democrat congressman keith ellison, a muslim of sunni religion to blurt out such bullcrap to say, the japanese internment is a stain of the country, i say what stain? the stains the nation have right now are the bloodstains of the thousands american victims of the muslim terrorists, if not neutralize will cost millions of american lives as well as the lives of innocent bystanders of the world. what the heck, this self serving muslim democrat congressman is saying the nation is still apologizing for the japanese interment, first who are the people apologizing in this darn age, true fabrications to make him look like a statesman, which is further from the truth. this muslim democrat congressman is pro self interest and pro interest of his own kind to give BS arguments quote, americans must “understand that not all muslims look a certain way, not all muslims are religious, and that most muslims belong to different sects and different faith traditions”, the statements of this dummy muslim democrat congressman alone have incriminated himself, why? he just accepted in the muslim communities right here at home, radicalism do exist. these muslim radicals are either citizens, legal or illegal aliens if not closely monitored will successfully create more havocs to america. muslims of america do not voice their rage of terrorists killing americans, their lack of denunciation indicate approval of terrorism events in america. the democratic party going along with this muslim democrat congressman says it all, terrorism is winning by agreeing surveillance is racism, without surveillance have proven time and time again, terrorisms are out of control. the lefty progressive government officials elected by the people have to blame themselves alone giving power to lefty politicians risking american lives, by protecting the obvious perpetrators, the radical muslims who have infiltrated american hoods near where you all live.
