Mich. Muslim group says FBI asking people to spy

 

DETROIT - A Michigan Muslim organization has called on U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate complaints alleging the FBI is asking followers of the faith to spy on Islamic leaders and congregations.

The Council of Islamic Organizations of Michigan says it sent a letter last week to Holder after mosques and other groups reported members of the community have been approached to monitor people coming to mosques and donations they make.

Dawud Walid is executive director of the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. He says such complaints aren't new, but concerns have grown after a recent revelation the FBI planted a spy in a Southern California mosque.

Sandra Berchtold, a spokeswoman in the FBI's Detroit office, had no immediate comment.

True Muslims, us who learn the Qur'an and live by the Qur'an do watch out for radicals and most will speak up and tell someone...We do not want sick individuals doing bad things in the name of Islam.

Bas idea. The FBI should not be singling out one religion. However, asking all Americans to stay aware is acceptable.
