N.J. Muslims worry about backlash [You knew this was coming!]
Philly.com ^ | May 9, 2007

Posted on 05/10/2007 1:52:07 PM PDT by Alouette

Authorities' description of six men charged with plotting an attack on Fort Dix as "Islamic militants" is renewing worry among New Jersey's Muslims. Authorities rounded up and detained hundreds of Muslim men from New Jersey in the months after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, but none was connected to that plot. Now Muslims fear a resurgence of anti-Islamic sentiment and bias.

"If these people did something, then they deserve to be punished to the fullest extent of the law," said Sohail Mohammed, a lawyer who represented scores of detainees after the 2001 attacks. "But when the government says 'Islamic militants,' it sends a message to the public that Islam and militancy are synonymous. Don't equate actions with religion."

Boo. Hoo. Please see my tagline.

"On Sunday, Cherry Hill - home to four of the accused men - broke ground for its first mosque."

Muslims SHOULD be worried...
Sooner or later in America - Muslims will start suffering the consequences of supporting, defending, covering for and financing the murderous militant Islamists within their “cult”..

For once, maybe they need to. I'm tired of them whining about persecution that never comes. If I were a Nisei or a elderly German-American, I'd tell the muzzies to shove it up their a@@.

The Nisei and German-Americans PROVED their loyalty to America and now nobody even thinks of questioning their loyalty. Hispanics have honorably served in the US military for years, and we don't question the loyalty of Hispanics who've come to America legally.

The Muzzies still have something to prove. We still have to worry about "Sudden Jihad Syndrome", where some lapsed Muzzie has a "moment of enlightenment" and decides to start offing people.

That's too bad for Cherry Hill - the first mosque I mean. If these islamawahckos truly fear the oft-predicted backlash, they should return to their native sand-pits.

They wouldn’t have to fear a backlash if they would simply demonstrate their alligence to America and take a very public stand against the terrorists. I’d like to think they just don’t get it...but I fear it’s more sinister than that.

FrontPageMagazine.com | May 9, 2007

On Monday, the FBI arrested six Muslims who were planning a commando-style attack on Fort Dix in New Jersey, to “kill as many soldiers as possible,” authorities said.

Four of the six men are Albanians, a fact that Fox News — which apparently thinks that “Yugoslavia” and “Albanians” are the same, and isn’t sure what those two things might have to do with “the Balkans” — reported thus:

The Associated Press reported that those captured were nationals of the former Yugoslavia, but the law enforcement source told FOX News that not all of them are of Albanian ethnicity. Federal sources also said the group is from the “Balkans.”

The only clue we get from other news sources that the four “Yugoslavs” are Albanian, and from Kosovo, is in sentences like these, which appeared in an earlier version of an AP report:

In 1999, [Fort Dix] sheltered more than 4,000 ethnic Albanian refugees during the NATO bombing campaign against Yugoslavia…After that war, refugees were allowed to return to the U.N.-run province of Kosovo in Serbia or to seek permanent residency in the United States.

Pat ourselves on the back for resettling those “rescuees” here. Terrorism aside, the Albanian mafia has already overtaken both the Russian and Italian ones. There was also that Kosovo Albanian whose al-Qaeda application was discovered in Afghanistan, to name just one of many such collaborators.

This is Balkan blowback, and it’s been happening since we stuck our nose where it didn’t belong throughout the 1990s and, for good measure, bombed the wrong side. Maybe one day we’ll finally start talking about it. This morning, Balkan experts Jim Jatras, director of the American Council for Kosovo, and Dr. Serge Trifkovic alerted all major on-air media of their availability to discuss this development and were told, “We have our usual terror experts.”

Those would be the same terror experts who, in their daily opining on the War on Terror, haven’t touched the Balkans — a key region in the War on Terror, as it was the site of al-Qaeda’s proliferation into a truly global network and now serves as the organization’s European base and entryway for attacks on that continent and others. (Note to Fox News: “Balkans” includes Kosovo, Bosnia, Albania and others.)

So, we’re in for yet another round of terror “experts” painting terrorism in and from the Balkans as a unique thing, suspended in a vacuum of context, lest Americans start piecing things together and surmising that perhaps what happened to the Serbs is in some way related to what’s happening everywhere else on the globe.

Just so no one has to look too far, here’s an excerpt from a New York Times article that was written before we decided that, in the Balkans, the terrorists are the good guys:

A young Army conscript of ethnic Albanian origin shot up his barracks, killing four sleeping Slavic bunkmates and wounding six others.

The army says it has uncovered hundreds of subversive ethnic Albanian cells in its ranks. Some arsenals have been raided.

But watch the Fort Dix story go away faster than the one about the Bosnian Muslim who killed five Americans and injured another four in Salt Lake City for Valentine’s Day three months ago. Who even knows that at least two of the 9/11 hijackers were veterans of the Bosnian jihad, as Muslim sources now openly call it?

I have a suggestion: Deport each and every one of them, that way the aithorities won’t have to sort through them.
After the next attack (and it’s coming, people, don’t think it’s not!) there will be a call to put Muslims in concentration camps like the Japanese in World War II. If the next major attack against us is nuclear (which I suspect it will be—why else would the Iranians want one?)then all bets are off.

Yup. CAIR has already put out a “media advisory” telling the media not to refer to this as what it is - associated with Islam.

Last paragraph:

Yaser El-Menshawy, chairman of the Majlis Ash-Shura of New Jersey, the state’s council of mosques, condemned the alleged plot and said he was glad nothing was carried out. But he said the motivation of people who plotted against the government “cannot be stopped simply by law enforcement or military means alone.”

Now THAT sounds like a threat!

They will be successful doing so if we have to depend on government. On second thought; could this be exactly what government has in mind?

I grew up in south Jersey. When I go back for a visit I always get gas at a WaWa store. I hate dealing with rags when I gas up. They acted like they didn’t want to touch you when they gave you change. When I go to buy a six pack in my home town a lot of the liquor stores are now owned by rags. I used to get gas at a little Agway gas station in the Pine Barrens. Now owned and operated by a rag. Terrorism and gangs have come to the little farm town where I grew up. It tears my heart out.

So, Muslims who claim to also be Americans, come forward and tell us who these outlaw factions are. You live next to them every day, you hear them speaking sometimes not so furtively in their native tongue, and you know well that they have mischief in mind. When these people are turned in by their own neighbors and acquaintances, for the greater good of all the community, not just the Muslims, you gain the respect and acceptance you seem to so desperately crave from your non-Muslim neighbors.

Or you may whine because you ae so abused. But remember, you stand to suffer far greater abuse from these thugs in your midst, than you shall ever be subject to from your non-Muslim neighbors.

They swim among you like fish in the sea. Help us identify and remove the predators among your number, and we shall ALL be much more secure. To do otherwise is solidarity without strength.

It’s a formula with the US media:

1. Egregious violence is perpetrated and occurs/is foiled by Muslim factions
2. Two to three days pass.
3. Press comes out with the image rehab piece on how ‘The Peaceful Muslims’ are quaking over their goat testicles and falafel in their quiet, peaceful homes.

My response:

To me, all Muslims are responsible. There are no innocent Muslims. Not yet.

Until the day the peaceful ones start ‘taking their religion back’ from the ‘radical’ minority that seems to cause the overwhelming majority of the war, violence, and chaos in the world, they can continue worrying about a backlash. In fact, they are probably laughing their burkhas off at how the fat, stupid Americans will take almost anything they can dish out without getting upset.

Until then, they should continue to worry, and I don’t want to read any more stories about how worried they are, because its aiding and abetting the enemy.

It’s time to start throwing them out of our country, or it is time for them to start throwing radicals out of their mosques. To me, its that simple.

“Don’t equate actions with religion.”

You say the Koran orders you to kill or convert infidels, to form no friendship with a Christian or Jew, and to beat, rape, and kill your wives and daughters in the name of honoring Allah. Then you cry because civilized people view your “religion” negatively. If the shoe fits...

Tough. The backlash is because of:

Bombing trains. Bombing buses. Bombing planes. Flying planes into buildings.
Slicing heads off while singing religious hymns.
Dragging bodies through streets.
Using “charities” to pass money to terrorists. The Sears Tower Plot. Slavery in Sudan,
Killing converts to Christianity. Cutting your head off if you don’t convert.
Torturing and killing kids in a school. Nicholas Berg. Daniel Pearl. Margaret Hassan. Paul Johnson.
Calling for the death of the Pope. Rioting over cartoons.

The "government" doesn't have to "send a message" you idiot muslime!
Your muslime religion satanic cult of murder is doing a fine job of that without any help from anybody or any government.
When your religion Cult ceases terrorist actions then you may tell me your opinion.
Meanwhile....

Too late for the Moose limbs. As a community they will never be American’s now.
