Who better than a Muslim to know of, or be aware of, a fellow Muslim who is radicalized?
And shouldn’t those so-called “moderate” Muslims who know of radicalization report fellow Muslims who are preparing to commit a crime against America or against American citizens?
According to CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations):
“No, do not report suspicious behavior.”
CAIR is telling all American Muslims not to report suspicious behavior. And the way CAIR is doing it is, as usual, subversive and devious.
This is CAIR’s latest campaign, which began immediately, within hours, after the terror attack in Brussels.
CAIR posted on all of their various social media, national, state and local, and their affiliates:
“Be careful. If that friend you met at mosque calls for “jihad,” he is probably an informant.”
CAIR is devious. CAIR is telling Muslims – “Do not report suspicious behavior, or you might be arrested”.
The CAIR campaign says:
“What have informants become and how are they currently used? Law enforcement informants in Muslim communities are “agent provocateurs” — they are individuals used by law enforcement to lure innocent Muslims into criminal acts. These informants are used to create crimes. Law enforcement should fight real crimes, not create fake crimes.” …
“Law enforcement informants target vulnerable people who suffer from mental, emotional or other instabilities. Impressionable young men with political views that differ from the current government administration are often targeted. These law enforcement informants befriend someone with constitutionally-protected political grievances, and then exploit that friendship. People targeted by informants often have no intention to commit a crime prior to meeting the informant.”
CAIR further states:
“They [the law enforcement “informants”] are creating crimes to solve crimes so they can claim a victory in the war on terror.”
“Experts highly recommend that you never speak with law enforcement without having an attorney representing you. You need to safeguard yourself against the informant’s efforts to put you in prison. If the person is not an informant, but is a legitimate threat to the community, you still need to safeguard yourself. CAIR recommends you contact CAIR for a representative or contact the Muslim Legal Fund of America for an attorney.”
