US Unfair to Muslims, Group Says

(CNSNews.com) - The Department of Homeland Security is unfairly targeting Muslims, an Islamic civil rights group says, and on Monday, the group will host an "emergency town hall meeting" to discuss the situation.

The Los Angeles chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations has invited speakers from the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, FBI, and Justice Department to address the gathering.

Local attorneys and relatives of people detained by immigration authorities also will speak.

According to CAIR-LA, over the last few months, several Muslim religious leaders in California have been detained on minor immigration infractions and have been denied bail. According to their attorneys, the detained individuals have been in the country legally and have filed all necessary documents to maintain their status.

Dozens of harassment complaints also have been filed by American Muslim travelers. CAIR-LA said the incidents include being unable to remove their names from the 'No Fly List,' repeated stops and interrogations at airports, exclusion from entry to the United States, and revocation of visas for no stated reason.

"While we are all in full support of securing our nation and its borders, we believe the selective application of the law only reinforces the widespread perception that government officials are targeting Islam and Muslims," said Sabiha Khan, communications director CAIR-LA.

The Monday evening meeting in southern California is being organized by the following groups: CAIR-LA; The Southern California Civil Rights Coalition (CRC); Islamic Shura Council of Southern California;Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); Free Imam Wagdy Committee (FIWC); Airman Halabi Justice Committee (AHJC); National Lawyers Guild (NLG); League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) - Orange County Chapter; Los Amigos of Orange County; Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA); and South Asian Network (SAN).

Yeah they should be strip searching Irish grandmothers and Buddhist monks like the ones that declared jihad on us and attacked us on 9/11.

Muslims unfairly targeted Americans on 9/11/2001.

This is actually good news. See, it's muslims who are terrorising people all over the world in an organized fashion, not Swedes, Mexicans, Samoans,etc. Who knows, maybe the U.S. authorities are paying closer attention and doing a better job than we give 'em credit for.

As soon as I saw "CAIR" the old terrorist sympathizer flag went up. CAIR is the Sean Finn of Al Queda.

I never understood how a half-decent guy like Grover Norquist could be associated with these scumbags - unless he's under cover for DHS?

Its ultimatum time. Bush could come out with a statement saying that if CAIR degrades our intelligence enough that we get attacked with devastation on order or greater than 9/11 then we will declare martial law long enough to kick every Muslim out of America.

We need to have 2 different types of lines at airports... one for Muslims, then one for Non-Muslims. The Muslims can get on board a Radio-contolled passenger jet just with a steele-bolted cockpit door just in case they try to take it over. All the Non-Muslims can get on board the other one.

CAIR has a lot to learn about PR in the US. They are doing all the wrong things.

Since Islamic law expressly prohibits submission to any secular non-Ismlamic authority, we need to officially declare that being a Muslim is a de-facto declaration of intent to overthrow the United States government. Thus, Muslims are by definition guilty of treason.
