Climate of Intimidation
Laila Alawa in the Guardian: ...So to many of us, this week's Human Rights Watch report outlining just how many of the foiled terrorist conspiracies were, in reality, sting operations conducted by our own government – well, that came as no surprise. The report alleges that "[i]n some cases the FBI may have created terrorists out of law-abiding individuals by suggesting the idea of taking terrorist action or encouraging the target to act."

Though many Muslims Americans like me kept quiet in the years after 9/11 for fear of arousing illegitimate government suspicion, we've since learned that it is not silence that will keep the government from overstepping its bounds. We need to be visible, to be active, and to speak up when the government uses our religion as the basis for persecution. Revelations like even those in this latest, extensive report won't scare us any more – they'll only serve to push more Muslim Americans into public service.
