Skip to comments.Federal sweep may have foiled anti-Muslim plot [FBI Michigan, etc. militia raids -- further info]

Dawud Walid, executive director of the Council on Islamic-American Relations of Michigan, on Sunday said that the FBI foiled a plot to attack and kill Muslim-Americans.
Walid was attending the group's 10th anniversary banquet in Dearborn, Michigan where the Rev. Jesse L. Jackson was keynote speaker.
Muslim leaders in Chicago are "following developments of the arrests with great interest and concern," says Ahmed Rehab, Executive Director of CAIR Chicago.
"If some of the initial reports are true. Then, these radical groups are a chilling indication that anti-Muslim hysteria in some circles may be developing into stages of organized terroristic activity," Rehab said Sunday night.
Late Sunday, on the Hutaree message board, an apparent member of the group wrote about how the FBI came into their home and that she and one child escaped. "The Federal Authorities have raided not only our group but also the Michigan Militia. They have hijacked their website and placed word there that they were not raided" wrote the woman named Anna.
The Michigan Militia indeed reported on Sunday that it's members had not been subjected to raids or arrest. It is unclear whether this is accurate.
The Hutaree message board author further reported: "We need some help please. This has to stop. I am enroute south with my children using the wifi's as I can. They were catching others as they came to their rallying points, they broke into homes and took children and used the tasers on wives, my son who is 12 and I got out by crawling through the creeks behind our house. My husband and others are taken, please call the press and tell them, if any in the Michigan Militia is still free please rally with them. Please help."

At least we know for sure whose side the Feds are on now.
When I saw the location of the raids in earlier articles, I wondered if there was a Dearborn connection. Sure ‘nuff.
So CAIR knows what no one else seems to know?
That’s suspicious in itself.
Muslim-Americans? Or just Muslims. I doubt many of them are legal.
We can’t have that.
Muzzies never hurt anyone.
Theirs is the religion of peace.
Any federal sweeps of Obamas anti-Christian Islamic terrorist sleeper cells in mosques around the country...........?
I didn't think so....
Who voted for this Kenyan imposter pretending to be President and wanting to be Dictator anyway? Well, they asked for it and they got it.
I’m sure the Muslim community was just SHOCKED that anyone would hurt another group because of their religion!
These people are nuts. I’m in MI, I know what would happen if anyone attacked a Muslim community such as Dearborn or Hamtramck. The entire state would blow up. Remember Beslin? That would happen in every suburb in Southeast MI.
I’m in an area where there is a large Chaldean community. If you talk to any of them, they will tell you that they are the most hated of all Middle Easterners BECAUSE they are not Muslim. They lived with the hate and know that they are the first but not the only targets.
Michiganders are not stupid. I don’t care what flavor of Christian they are.
As if there were ever any doubt, in particular with this administration but even before.
Tell me how many women and children have been injured or killed at the hands of non-muslims in the US? ZERO!!!
The ONLY people that have suffered ANY harm are those who have suffered harm at the hands of mulisms! We could start with the first World Trade Center bombing back in ‘93 and then skip merrily along to 11 September 2001, then the muslim snipers, the attack at Ft. Hood, etc.
CAIR is a protection racket for murderers and an EVIL theology, PERIOD!
Silly me! When I read there were raids of ‘compounds’ in Michigan, I just assumed it was for the terrorist training grounds made up of Nation of Islam and other Islamic groups.
Yeah, what was I thinking?
You sure about that?
Huh? What do you mean Muslims? These were Christian places that were raided, with the HELP of the Muslims. Is that what you meant?
Muslims helped the Feds arrest CHRISTIANS.
I’m not sure everyone understands that part.
This country has gone to sh*t I swear it has
“Tell me how many women and children have been injured or killed at the hands of non-muslims in the US? ZERO!!!”
Ok, while I understand your sentiment, the answer is the group that Tim McVeigh was a part of. Of course some may have been Islamic as well.
