At the online site of Daily Times which describes itself as "A new voice of a new Pakistan," we read a story that in one form or another we've been reading since just after September 11, 2001. It begins:
The Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the largest Muslim rights organisation in the United States, has described the revelation that Muslim gatherings and homes around Washington have been electronically “sniffed” for radiation as “disturbing.”If CAIR ever tires of its "we poor Muslims in America" meme, I hope it gives America its explanations for the following:
In a statement on Friday, CAIR said, “This disturbing revelation, coupled with recent reports of domestic surveillance without warrant, could lead to the perception that we are no longer a nation ruled by law, but instead one in which fear trumps constitutional rights. All Americans should be concerned about the apparent trend toward a two-tiered system of justice system, with full rights for most citizens, and another diminished set of rights for Muslims.”
1) Why so few Muslims choose to emigrate from America.
2) Why so many Muslims have chosen to immigrate to America since 9/11.
If, as CAIR constantly tells us, Muslims are now second-class citizens with a diminished set of rights, why are so few leaving and so many coming?
CAIR should explain these comings and goings.
