US Muslims wary of possible retaliatory attacks
NBC News ^ | September 12, 2012

Posted on 09/12/2012 6:35:02 PM PDT by NCjim

U.S. Muslims are seeing a spike in hate calls and are concerned about possible retaliatory attacks on domestic mosques following the fatal attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya and protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo.

“We’re starting to get hate calls and we’d already seen a wave of anti-Muslim incidents,” Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council on Arab-Islamic Relations in Washington, D.C., told NBC News on Wednesday.

“Our first thought is condemning the attacks. Obviously this is something we’re concerned about,” he said. Muslims are feeling insecure, he added.

Big Media spun this 11 years ago and highlighted a few nutcases who did it.... bet they caused a few, too.

Cair continues to claim it is anti-terror but it took almost a full day for them to condemn the attacks.

So Muslims are feeling insecure again. Boo-frickin-hoo. What do they think we’ve been feeling since 9/11?

It appears that they’d rather live here in The Great Satan than in the hell holes in Muzzie World.

If we compared the number of real “retaliatory” attacks on Muslims with the number of Muslim attacks on Americans, we would find that the concern is entirely on the wrong side.

Then start policing yourselves, disavowing the radicals, and turning in the terrorists.

Otherwise ZERO sympathy here.

Hooper, we are not muslims. We do not wantonly murder people. We don't abuse people as a way of life. We do not take out our frustrations on innocents. In short we are civilized.

Perhaps it had to coordinate it’s statement with obama’s first.

The US Consulate in Benghazi was attacked by:

1. Rush Limbaugh
2. Mark Levin
3. Sarah Palin
or
4. Muslim men mostly between the ages of 18-40.

This “US Muslims Express Fear of Retaliation” story is templates and is dragged out after every Islamofascist atrocity.

American Muslims are drama queens. They are afraid someone might say something bad about their pedophile prophet, or maybe use a koran for toilet paper.

__________________________________________

They count on this, you know. They do not fear real abuse, which no civilized person will do to “innocents”.

They do not want to be shunned, to be looked at the wrong way, to be called names. They wish to make it illegal to call mohammed what he was and islam what it is.

As for me, I will not give an inch, for they will take a yard and more.

Maybe it is all those places that serve and sell pork, why would they do that if not to insult Muslims. Or perhaps he was forced to drive by a church or 2 that had a cross. The American people are so insensitive to the peace loving Muslims.

Here we go again!

It's all about Meeeee!!!!

The bodies of the muslim's victims aren't cold yet and muslims are already starting their whining about non-existent retaliation.

They should move away from America and back to their lands of mud huts and open sewers so they don't have to put up with infidels who get upset when muslim scumbags kill fellow Americans.

This truly is a case of projection. Back home people would be seeking revenge ~ so there would be incidents.

These people don't understand America. Part of the reason is they continue to adhere to primitive notions of interhuman relationships.

Well, Ibrahim, that hat moved on the cowboy's head just a bit. If that concerns you, just wait until those boots come off the table. Keep pushing if you want to see it....

I trust that if one of these heathens is somehow harmed in some way that they will have a somewhat less eventful trip to the hospital than our Ambassador to Libya experienced recently.

Well, you are absolutely right!

And what about piggy-banks and sex-offender laws? Was their prophet not a pedophile?

Just look at how these American women dress as well! Why, the loins of muslim men must be in constant shameful agony.

Muzzie terrorists attack U.S. embassies and murder an Ameican, and the tribe who controls the media decides that the ragheads are the real victims here. I wonder if their attitudes would be different if some newsrooms were attacked instead of embassies.

Hooper made several claims of attacks/harassment/hate crimes after 9-11. None of those claims panned out to be true.

Hooper will probably be making similar claims soon.

I'd like to be honest.

As an American, I have standards. I was raised right. Of course retaliation as muslims understand it is out of the question because I AM civilized.

However, my mind brings forth, unwillingly, a thousand ways to humiliate islamics. I can't be the only one.

The koran, crumpled, burned, placed in trash receptacles..childish thoughts. Childish because that is our only outlet.

Fallujah is not glass. Egypt is not glass.

islam must pay, but they have not been forced to pay, yet they should pay.

But I've been raised right. Multiply that by thousands, and we know why islamists are allowed to live in this country.

We were civilized when we exterminated the NAZIS and killed all of those Japanese “warriors” too. Weren’t we?

As long as American Muslims are peacefully practicing their religion, I have no problem with them and they should be afforded the same protection under the law that everyone has.

That being said if they even so much as voice a word of support for the terrorists or advocate terror, they should immediately be deported...
