I know I posted yesterday. And the day before. And the day before that day. And so on. But it’s winter break and I have a lot of free time and I can’t wait for Friday. For those of you who haven’t seen my About me page recently, I am Muslim. I recommend you check it out before reading this post. There are a few more questions: What are your religion, have u met any terrorists, and what do you hate(which even has it’s own little game).
Okay. So let’s talk about Current Events, shall we? This article, actually, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/12/04/AR2010120403710.html?sid=ST2010120404317
To summarize the article, a while ago the FBI technicians to dress up as Muslims and sent them to one of the Mosques in California. So anyways, this dude dressed up as a spy and started going around asking if we should plant a bomb on America any time soon or “It’s good that you guys are getting ready for the jihad”. Way to blend in. So a lot of people looked at him like, “WTH?” but they didn’t really say anything. Monteilh, the spy dude, became a Muslim and started spending an unbelievable time around the Masjid and started forgetting his keys everywhere. Turns out inside his button was a hidden camera and inside his keys there was one too. According to the article, the FBI has been using this technique since the terrorist attack in 2001. Quoted from the website above, “In the Irvine case, Monteilh’s mission as an informant backfired. Muslims were so alarmed by his talk of violent jihad that they obtained a restraining order against him.” And then after that, Monteilh sued the FBI. Quoted again for the article, ” ‘The FBI wants to treat the Muslim community as a partner while investigating us behind our backs,’ said Kurdi, the Loyola student. ‘They can’t have it both ways.’ ” It’s really sad what the government will do to stomp on people because they’re different. I mean, go ahead, search for terrorists, but if someone has never done any harm in his life (like my dad, who is on several watchlists because he does speeches, none about “violent jihad”, which isn’t even a part of my religion, I may add) then why target him? Target the people who have a criminal record. We don’t go into your churches asking for terrorists.
