US:More Islamic Orgs Threaten to End Contact With FBI

This is a continuation of the "US:Muslim Orgs Threaten to end all Contact With FBI" story. Which all started because American Muslims do not like the fact that some of their Mosques were being targeted by the FBI. I guess that American Muslims do not like us going after Islamic terrorists.

WASHINGTON, April 1, 2009 /PRNewswire-USNewswire via COMTEX/ ----More Islamic and civil liberties organizations have signed on to a statement by the American Muslim Taskforce on Civil Rights and Elections, a coalition of major national Islamic organizations, saying that it is considering suspending outreach relations with the FBI over recent incidents in which American mosques and Muslim groups have been targeted.

The new signatories include the Pakistan American National Alliance, the Peace and Justice Foundation, Muslim Voters of America, and the Coordinating Council of Muslim Organizations (CCMO: undefined, undefined, undefined%) in the greater Washington, D.C., area. The CCMO represents more than 50 Washington-area mosques, Islamic schools and Muslim organizations.

"Constructive relations with any law enforcement agency must be based on mutual respect and trust," said CCMO Chair Asma Hanif. "We hope that the FBI addresses these crucial issues so that trust can be restored and relations maintained."

To date, 34 organizations and many community activists and scholars have endorsed AMT's statement.
