Climate of Fear Spreads In California Mosques
Pajamas Media ^ | March 2 | Aaron Hanscom

Posted on 03/03/2009 9:32:27 AM PST by AJKauf

Charitable contributions at Southern California mosques are down by as much as 30% to 50% over the last few years. Blame the climate of fear.

That’s what Rafe Husain, a board member for the Islamic Center of Corona Norco, is doing. “People feel tense and uncomfortable,” Husain is quoted as saying in a recent Los Angeles Times article. Just another story about the woeful recession we currently find ourselves in? Mosque-goers are feeling jittery about their dwindling 401k accounts and have decided to fork over less money to the needy? Not quite.

What’s got some L.A.-area Muslims in a cold sweat is the recent revelation that the FBI planted a spy in Orange County mosques. Also troubling the Muslim community are the FBI’s interrogations about charitable contributions. Apparently the agents’ tactics are terrifying — at least to the people who find law enforcement officials “asking why were they donating and who was receiving their money” particularly fear-inducing.

Yet again we have a story about Muslims in America upset about efforts to root out the violent extremists in their midst. In fact, the FBI has a good reason to quiz Muslims about their donations.

Ask yourself the following question. How would you react to the news that a member of your temple or church had terrorist connections? Would you feel betrayed by your fellow congregant or by the informant who helped bring him down?.....

Also Hussein’s news media is demonizing the CIA and FBI for looking into Islamic terrorism and protecting America from Obama’s backers - the Saudis & their Al Queda pals.

Well we have two convicted terrorists in Lodi. The son was found guilty after a trial, the father plead guilty. Nevertheless "The Stockton Record" ran an article about how the poor father was having to live in his Ice Cream truck and this was just not the treatment an innocent man should get. Seems to me, if you plead guilty, then you are not innocent.

The press will always take the side on the so-called victims.

So they are feeling all tense and upset? Well, boo freakin hoo. Suppose we might be feeling all tense and upset with all the honor killings and other general throat slittings and just in general kill anyone who doesn’t agree with you killings? What a religion of stupidity

Really? The FBI is actually keeping an eye on enemies of America?

Color me surprised.

Let's see...

should I care that a religion that supports terrorism is "living in a climate of fear"?

Give a damn progress bar

"the FBI planted a spy in Orange County mosques"

This is actually shocking. They must have run out of Boy Scout Troops, Rotary Clubs and Investment Meetups to infiltrate.

I'm sure the Democrats in Congress will declare it to be Torture, and will put a stop to it immediately.

You know, when nineteen crazy, hate-filled, obsessive, turben-wearing, murderious maniacs of the Moon Cult kill 3000 members of the banking community for no damn reason but their faux-god Baal-demon Allah told them to, you’ve got to expect a contraction of the money market sooner or later. And also, a massive PR problem with anyone with more than two brain cells to rub together.

I wonder how terrified they'd be if they were subject to terrorist bombings?

I wish we had more infiltrators who speak Arabic (FBI or otherwise). I’m sure America (at least the Conservative wing) would be shocked at what is said at each and every one of these houses of satanic worship.

Let them run the community they live in and give them a few hundred infidels to behead each week, and they will feel all better.

The press will always take the side on the so-called victims.”

UNTIL some member of THEIR family is the victim...of the ganster- the terrorist- whatever.....

Then they adopt the attitude of “Why me? I always was very lenient of your positions!”...

Well, you wouldn’t need to speak Arabic to do that but you couldn’t be white. Your cover would be blown.
