Ohio Muslims, Arabs growing anxious in post - 9/11 U.S.
The Athens News ^ | 9/2/2004 | John Lasker

Posted on 09/03/2004 5:56:13 PM PDT by 4.1O dana super trac pak

Ziad Akir, who heads the Athens Islamic Center at 13 Stewart St., doesn't have "solid evidence" the center is being watched. But no one at the center knows who owns the black SUV that frequently has been seen parked in their lot.

"(One member) claims that there is strange equipment on the car with flashing indicators. I don't know for sure, but it may be a possibility," said Akir speculating on whether someone may be spying on the center.

Some may scoff at Akir's claim as a bout of paranoia during trying times for Arab Americans and those whose faith is Islam. Think again, advises another prominent Ohio Muslim, who contends he has heard of similiar complaints from nearly every mosque in the state.

"We hear of mosques being spied on, being watched, quite frequently," said Jad Humeidan, director of CAIR Ohio. CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) is considered one of Muslim America's most influential non-profits.

He said that the identity of whoever is conducting the surveillance remains a mystery. And if the mystery is nothing more than a perceived -- as opposed to real -- threat, it appears justified for Arab Americans during the post-9/11 era of fear.

I sure as hell hope the FBI is watching the mosques and "islamic cultural centers" like a hawk.

From Germany to Italy, mosques have been used to organize terror cells.

Shoot, I *WISH* they had reason to be scared.

Muslims should gtfo of this country.

We should treat Mohamemdanism like we treated Nazism post Pearl Harbor.

whiney babies.

Maybe if they stood up to mass scale warcrimes in their name they'd be treated better? Right now I'm surprised we haven't rounded them up and shipped them out or to extermination camps.

If they were being watched, I sincerely doubt that an agency would park a car with 'flashing lights' in their parking lot.

Then again, these people do tend to think and behave on the level of children; perhaps you could get away with parking your surveillance equipment in their parking lot.

I'm certain there's no paranoia at all among Russian mothers and fathers tonight.

Poor Muslims. Soooooooooo misunderstood.

Sort of like the saying that:

when those in govt fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear their govt their in tyranny.

When Moslems fear the infidels, there is peace. When the infidels fear the Moslems, there is destruction.

I think I'll go see if I can find a Mosque. Go park my car in the parking lot and just stare at people that come in. Do that 2 or 3 times a week.

I'm tired of our People being scared all of the time. Maybe it's time the Mohammedans were scared for once.

Interesting.

A few days following 9/11 there were a series of attacks on a temple in Renton, WA. A group of concerned citizens ended up taking turns walking the perimeter of the temple to prevent more attacks and violence.

It didn't really matter that it was a Hindu place of worship, all that mattered was that they were "rag heads".

It has been. But now more and more people are realizing that the people who took those schoolchildren hostage are Muslims and the sympathy for them will fade. Americans will start to realize that the same evil maniacs who killed all those innocent children are the same evil maniacs who want to kill us.

The article is full of unintended confessions, and worth
a read. Most telling, perhaps is what's NOT there, such
as any condemnation of terrorism in the name of Islam.

> But it goes beyond rising violence, and law-enforcement
> or hate-group anxiety, said Humeidan. "Arabs are being
> denied jobs, housing and apartments, and are being
> arrested for no cause."

More telling, not even any mild complaint about the
cutthroat perps who have put them in this position.

Oppressed Minority Sympathy Score: 0

Maybe people should install lots of blinking lights and faux security cameras in their cars / trucks / suvs and park them near their local mosques. Keep them looking over their shoulders too much to have time to plan attacks.


More faux cameras here

There is a momentous decision facing " Ohio Muslims/Arabs:

Do you want to be an American, or a Muslim/Arab?

If you are an American, you will condemn things like the school-hostage murder of Children by Muslim/Arabs.

Anxious? Anxious? Well, sheeeeit! What did you expect ? You go around killing people left and right and say God told you to do it!!! What in the Hell did you expect other folks to think?

Do you expect we think you are just following your religious tenets and are therefore free in the U.S. to practice your religious beliefs? You have go to be either a self-deluded idiot or (and I think so) you are the perfect distillate of evil.

So, you watch your self, you daughters of pigs...you can bet your asses we are.

What goes around comes around. It's nice to see them feeling the heat that we felt for so long after 9/11, and still to some extent today. You can be sure there were a lot of high-fives in that same mosque when the towers fell. Cry me a river, Akir.

If they don't want to be persecuted then they should get off their butts and start standing up against these religious zealots in the middle east....they won't!

I went to O.U. and the ones that were there then use to move around in a herd bad mouthing the Jews in Arabic.....Oh ya, they were really active trying to manipulate other arabs into thinking as they did...pure hatred.

How do I know my husband is Catholic but raised in the middle east....he use to get into their faces about the Palestine victimhood cr@p they were always spewing. They hated my husband for calling them out......they never expected anybody to understand what they were saying so when he started to blow up in their faces they were horrified someone could understand what they were saying.

If they aren't standing with us loudly then they are definitely against us.

Cry me a river.

My dad was an Italian National here in the States when WWII broke out.

Bad timing for him.

He wasn't a spy or anything, but they watched him. They followed him. And they confiscated his camera.

But he LOVED America, and eventually became a citizen. He never went back to Italy. Ever. Even though he had kin there.

Being watched puts a little restraint on the celebratory dancing in the streets after beheadings, kidnappings and suicide bombings?

Questioning funding for terrorists inhibits religious duty?

Accessory to murder is a heavy charge.

Muslims have had their way with the world long enough. Payback time is coming.

We should treat Mohamemdanism like we treated Nazism post Pearl Harbor.



I believe that we are but one "Beslan" incident from taking that kind of action against Islam. Americans won't take much more. And that goes for our "tolerance" of pro terror protestors that support the antiamerican party.

The russians may beat us to the 'mecca' punch however. I say go for it big bear.
