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."

Warning! This is a high-volume ping list.
"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”..
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.
Stop worrying. Just pack up and move back to some Islamic
“paradise” $hithole you came from.
Of course and who cares? Maybe they should start worrying about what their own kids, brothers, husbands, uncles, etc. are up to.
Aided and abetted by Libs, feminists, the ACLU and a host of other left wing moonbats.
I hope mooselimbs throughout the United States are concerned.
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.
Bonk! Bonk! "Owwowwowwoww......"
Mine never did unsurge.
Why would it resurge?
“That’s too bad for Cherry Hill “ Cherry Hill is where we went to pick up babes when I was younger. Now, I suppose we can pick up bombs!

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 isnt 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 its been happening since we stuck our nose where it didnt belong throughout the 1990s and, for good measure, bombed the wrong side. Maybe one day well 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, havent touched the Balkans a key region in the War on Terror, as it was the site of al-Qaedas proliferation into a truly global network and now serves as the organizations European base and entryway for attacks on that continent and others. (Note to Fox News: Balkans includes Kosovo, Bosnia, Albania and others.)
So, were 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 whats happening everywhere else on the globe.
Just so no one has to look too far, heres 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 Valentines 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.
Well...here’s a novel thought. We could backlash for once.
