The conflict between Muslim civil rights …
The conflict between Muslim civil rights and political groups and the FBI after the agency cut ties with CAIR has reached the commanding heights of the US media industry with a story at CNN this morning:
The groups claim the FBI has sent undercover agents posing as worshippers into mosques, pressured Muslims to become informants, labeled civil rights advocates as criminals and spread misinformation.
The FBI’s Miller declined to comment on specifics, but said the FBI wants to avoid “formally constructed partnerships” with CAIR.
“Our concerns relate to a number of distinct narrow issues specific to CAIR and its national leadership,” Miller said.
Before the FBI severed formal ties, CAIR officials had met with the FBI to discuss hate crimes targeting Muslims. On occasion, CAIR offered assistance in investigations. The group also held training sessions for FBI agents on Islamic culture and ways to improve interactions with the Muslim community.
What the hell – so can we infer that the FBI is going to ignore or stifle investigations of hate crimes against Muslims in retaliation against community leaders and individuals who won’t kowtow to them?
