I love this:
Hina Shamsi, a lawyer with the National Security Project of the A.C.L.U., said, “The Islamic Society of North America does a lot of outreach and interfaith dialogue, and works in cooperation with the F.B.I., and yet, as a result of this stigma, its reputation has been deeply harmed.”Yes, of course, everyone knows how helpful it is to have Muslims with intimate ties to terrorists, who are funneling money to terrorists, and who help keep the American non-Muslims confused about Islam, how helpful it is to have those people "helping" the FBI with their counterterrorism efforts! What, is Shamsi on their payroll too? Print this post
“The irony is obviously that this is the very community whose cooperation the government most needs for effective counterterrorism,” she added.
