I myself am an american muslim... an the community i go to are mainly immigrant muslims...

Now there is what i call the immigrant mentality, these people come from 3rd world countries which dont have freedom of speech or rampant corruption of police at low levels.

see my wife is an immigrant.. and i recently turned in those guys u read about in LA who were doing gas station robberies.. but they were trying to fund terrorist activities right here in LA... so my wife was scared saying.. dont tell the police.. they will arrest u too.. I said WHAT??? are u crazy.. she is like.. no.. if u tell them they will arrest u too... see in her country thats what would happen... u turn someone in.. and the police arrest u too and want bribe money to let u go...

see its not that muslims here support terrorism, its the fact that they dont understand that polive here are pretty much honest.. and wont arrest u for turning someone in...

secondly.. they think if the speak out against it.. they might become targets of terrorists..

now since i turned those guys in... my wife is terrified these terrorists are gonna kill our family...

Well it might be that they really dont know who the terrorists are, the muslims in america.

Also there afraid of somekind of backlash that will happen.

The ones overseas, proabably dont say anything is because theres probably ohers in there community who support terrorists and they dot want a backlash from them.


I the end i think the muslim clerics in the Mosque shud turn anyone in they feel is an extremist.

The world will only fix itself with honesty and insight like this. Keep on keepin' on. It is a terrible situation, and I applaud you for doing the right thing.

Thanks for doing your duty. Each citizen must perform in what way he/she can.... some may never have the opportunity to make the choice... you've made the correct one.
I'm glad you're a fellow american. But as to the Muslim wife, what's the problem, no nice Italian girls in your neighborhood?

In the past, I would have agreed with you. But this nation is changing so fast and radically, I am not as confident as I used to be in the integrity and safety of the legal system.

I would urge you to stop talking publicly (here) about the details of this event and the details of your life. There's no need to be afraid, but there's no need to draw attention to yourself or the event.

You can still talk about the subject of this thread without telling the personal details.

Just my opinion.


Edit: And yes! You did the right thing! Good for you!

Aruv, you did the right thing. If more people where as brave as you, things would not be as bad. I hope for you and your families safety.

Its people like you and your wife that America will always welcome and consider postitive additions to its culture.

The people you turned in however, deserve whatever they get.

Good job!

Well, Aruv those kids in Britan were born and brought up in the UK and so were most of their neighbours, so the "immigrant mentality" wouldnt apply to them would it? also they were aware that they have a couple of rotten apples in their yard but choose to ignore them.
They were born and brought up as Britishers so i think they would have a more knowledgeable view of the law. So what is the reason their neighbours in britan didnt report it to the police?

I would like to applaud you for your bravery and your service to your community. It was really a very brave thing to do, doing the right thing of contacting the police even though you were under pressure from your wife not to do so!

I also feel that even if they know that the police wont arrest them they feel that by reporting such things they are betraying their religion or their community or something. That is also a reason I feel.
Also muslims in most parts of the world have a very strong sense of community and brotherhood that makes them a very closed community to break into for help in tracking terrorists. Also if somebody tells I would think that they would pretty much be ostracised from their community and would feel vulnerable especailly the immigrants!

I would say that ignorance is the enemy here in this case. Muslims in genral have little faith in the system because most are immigrants from the third world.
You need to be brave and to prove to your community that what you did was not a betrayal to islam but a service to it by identifing the people who would potentially tarnish its name.

I have encountered many muslims most of whom would never ever admit that their religion has its problems and almost certainly not give up one of their own to anybody else other than another muslim even if this person was very dangerous.
So what you did is a welcome trend, if this continues more Americans will feel safer about muslims in genral and will the muslim community will gain greater trust and respect from the everybody.

Yeah, you suspect someone is a terrorist, turn them in and next thing you know they're in Guantanamo Bay getting tortured, and will most likely never get out!
So hey, if anyone has hates anyone else, and they're a minority, you could always call the FBI and tell them that you feel that this person is a terrorist

hey IAF..

u made awesome points.. exactly.. 1st its not that i heard these guys talking.. they tried to actually recuit me.. (that pissed me off even more) 2nd the recruiter was trying to justify how killing innocent people was a just thing to do.. we argued for hrs on this (still at this time i felt this is one dumb individual, but potentially dangerous) then i said i have to do something.. for 2 reasons.. 1 to prevent murder.. 2 (like u said) it tarnishes islam... i am like u.. im only trying now to be the role model for local muslims.. so they can see "turning these assholes in" is the right thing to do...

One guy asked me.. why did u talk to the FBI, i said.. first its our responsibility as muslims.. to prevent evil.. and terrorism is evil.. 2nd.,. if these assholes did something.. our lives as muslims in america will only get harder.. he understood me...

Yeah, you did the right thing if they were really terrorists. However I'm talking about this "in general."

When did he see you talking to the FBI??? How would they know its you??


skippty
Its people like you and your wife that America will always welcome and consider postitive additions to its culture.

And you think he will feel the same way if the US 'nukes' mecca and the like???


aruv
One guy asked me.. why did u talk to the FBI,

Why does everyone know that you went to the FBI?
On the one hand, you wouldn't want to make yourself a target, on the other hand, because of what you did, the FBI is rounding up and breaking up an active recruiting terrorist cell, and they will probably be far too busy running from the FBI to spend resources to get back at you. And also know other people in your community know that you are a stand up guy and that you did what was right, and that they were the bad guys.

couple of things...

1, it is not true that they have been ignoring the extremists, quite the opposite! The comminities have been trying to get the police to act for years but have been ignored and told it's your problem you sort it out.

2, The correct term for is Britons not Britishers
