Frontline special on home grown terrorists
PBS's Frontline did a story on the so-called "home grown" terror cases the FBI has prosecuted. They came to the conclusion that there is very little threat from Muslims living in the US. The 9/11 plot was hatched entirely outside the US. The few cases of home grown terror the FBI has prosecuted against Muslims in the US seemed to have been set ups by the FBI themselves. I was appalled at the story of a Pakistani man from Stockton who appears, along with his son, to have been actually framed, by the US government. Most of the experts agreed that Muslims in the US are happy, healthy and integral parts of their communities. Unike European Muslims who are forced into ghettos.
The FBI mentioned that it has worries about Black prison inmates converting to Islam. They feel that the criminal histories and violent tendencies of the inmates who convert will encourage them to Jihad against the US. I disagree. I think the good that is done by the prisoners conversions to Islam far outweigh any threat to our security. Islam encourages personal responsibilty. The more Black men that find Allah in prison the fewer criminals there will be. Nothing should be done to discourage it. If a few plot jihad against us, many hundreds more will become responsible citizens and good fathers.
