Threats against muslim groups already?

Arab-American and Muslim-American advocacy organizations were already readying themselves for a backlash. The Arab-American Institute said it received one threatening call from an unidentified male shortly after reports surfaced that the name of the alleged shooting suspect was Nidal Malik Hasan. The group, which condemned the massacre, said it was expecting more.

"We like to give people the benefit of the doubt and chalk it up to being a reactionary thing," said Leigh O'Neill, director of government relations for the organization. "But there is a lot of hate out there and hate is hate. It is bipartisan and doesn't have geographic balance. We feel terrible for the victims today. And I wish people will understand when crime is crime and terrorism is terrorism."

  • Of course they are - according to the idjit in that other question "he looks like a terrorist" so of course they deserve the threats.

  • It's not the media's fault. The guy WAS a muslim and he made comments about how he thought "muslims should rise up, strap on bombs, and go into to town squares." Comments like that make him a home-grown terrorist. He's a nutcase and I'm glad he lived so they can prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law.  One of his relatives was saying how he was a "good American."  Yeah right, good Americans don't go around shooting and killing fellow Americans.  He commented how that he didn't think it was right that muslims should be killing muslims...well, he should direct those comments to the muslim insurgents who are blowing fellow muslims up.  He should direct that to the morons who bombed our Twin Towers on 9-11.  He's scum.

  • It has not been ruled out that this was not some form of Radical terrorist attack. They are on the news saying just that at this very moment.

  • I don't care if the guy sat in the lap of the Lincoln Memorial with a suitcase bomb - HOW does that justify death threats against other people who have nothing to do with him? Next time some psycho fundy Christian does something stupid does that mean we can start sending fake bombs to random churches?

  • I never said it justified it. I don't condon it. Two wrongs don't make a right. I posted that is hasn't been ruled out that it wasnt a act of terrorism and that is why people are doing it. There are idiots in every aspect of religion. And stooping to another level is just as bad as the doing commiting the act.

    And Im so sick of the christian excuse you people of other religions use everytime someone points out what another race or religion is doing. Can't you come up with something better? is that your only line of defense? Instead of owning what is wrong-- you have to attack another religion. Its really pathetic on your part.
