Muslim Groups Ask DOJ To Hold Haters Accountable

Free speech? What Free Speech? Welcome to Islamist and Sharia compliant reality

A coalition of faith groups met with Justice Department officials Monday to encourage the Obama administration to take a more public stance against anti-Muslim hate speech and hate crimes.

Farhana Khera, president and executive director of Muslim Advocates, said the community leaders requested the meeting due to an “alarming rise in anti-Muslim hate” that has become commonplace as the debate over the so-called “Ground Zero mosque” in New York City continues.

“We are a thriving democracy, we appreciate free speech, but when it crosses the line into violence, that’s against the law,” she said. “And the [Justice] Department, the federal government, the nation’s chief law enforcement officer is going to prosecute and hold them responsible to the fullest extent of the law.

She said the groups asked the Justice Department officials to hold people who engage in hate crimes accountable, and “send a message that hate and criminal activity and attacks on houses of worship is un-American.”

“Our concern is that we believe that there needs to be more attention, more resources put into investigating and prosecuting these cases as well as a higher level of attention to whatever efforts the department may be undertaking as well,” she said.

Yes, when thought becomes violence, the perpatrator should be arrested and charged with the appropriate crime, such as arson, assault, attempted murder, etc. Of course, they all want these people charged with thought crimes, and

The faith leaders and advocates said they came away from the meeting without any commitments from the Justice Department and called on the administration to make a strong public statement before the anniversary of the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Yeah, by all means, the DOJ should put out a statement in support of Muslims, right before the anniversary of when Muslims killed over 3,000 people.

Perhaps these Muslim groups should consider what they could do to “stop the hate.” Condemning Islamic violence openly and freely would be a good start. Telling them not to build the mosque at Ground Zero would be a second.
