Black Muslims Get A Pass

On June 1, a man shot two soldiers , killing one and wounding the other, in what he said was a terror attack. Police have since found that this guy had many other targets, and at this time it is still not clear if he was acting alone, as seems to be the case.

Eyewitnesses to the shooting immediately reported it to police, and authorities quickly located and arrested the suspect as he fled the scene. According to police, the suspect told the arresting officers that he had a bomb in his vehicle, but after an inspection by the police bomb squad, the only weapons police recovered from the vehicle were an SKS rifle and two pistols.

At a press conference, Little Rock Police Chief Stuart Thomas identified the suspect as Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, a 23-year-old African-American man who had changed his name from Carlos Leon Bledsoe after converting to Islam. In Arabic, the word mujahid is the singular form of mujahideen, and it literally means one who engages in jihad. Although Mujahid is not an uncommon Muslim name, it is quite telling that a convert to Islam would choose such a name — one who engages in jihad — to define his new identity. Muhammad was originally from Memphis, Tenn., but according to news reports was living and working in Little Rock.

What is not clear at this time is why the FBI and other law enforcement agencies were ordered by the Justice Department to “back off of” Black Muslim converts. Was this done at Hussein’s request, or AG Holder? We are not sure, because there is no “transparency” here.

However, politics have proved obstructive to all facets of counterterrorism policy. And politics may have been at play in the Muhammad case as well as in other cases involving Black Muslim converts. Several weeks ago, STRATFOR heard from sources that the FBI and other law enforcement organizations had been ordered to “back off” of counterterrorism investigations into the activities of Black Muslim converts. At this point, it is unclear to us if that guidance was given by the White House or the Department of Justice, or if it was promulgated by the agencies themselves, anticipating the wishes of President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder.

As STRATFOR has previously noted, the FBI has a culture that is very conservative and risk-averse. Many FBI supervisors are reluctant to authorize investigations that they believe may have negative blow-back on their career advancement. In light of this institutional culture, and the order to be careful in investigations relating to Black Muslim converts, it would not be at all surprising to us if a supervisor refused to authorize a full-field investigation of Muhammad that would have included surveillance of his activities. Though in practical terms, even if a full-field investigation had been authorized, due to the caution being exercised in cases related to Black Muslim converts, the case would most likely have been micromanaged to the point of inaction by the special agent in charge of the office involved or by FBI headquarters.

I have to admit, I am floored by this, because this is just asking for trouble here- you simply cannot nor should you overlook, or “back off of” any investigation of anyone, unless you are convinced of their innocence. There should be no other reason for termination of an investigation, and it seems that, coupled with the nightstick wielding Black Panthers who were “guarding” a polling place in a threatening manner, who had their charges dismissed, this begins to add up to at least favoritism for Black Muslims from the Justice Department, at best.

The three black panthers, Minister King Samir Shabazz, Malik Zulu Shabazz and Jerry Jackson were charged in a civil complaint in the final days of the Bush administration with violating the voter rights act by using coercion, threats and intimidation. Shabazz allegedly held a nightstick or baton that prosecutors said he pointed at people and menacingly tapped it. Prosecutors also say he “supports racially motivated violence against non-blacks and Jews.”


This was not right, but Hussein’s administration moved to dismiss all charges against these thugs and lowlifes. If this behavior over at Justice is any indication, it is no wonder that ammunition is flying off of the shelves at any store that stocks it. Concealed carry permits are up as never before, because most people know that, as good as the police try to be, they are still basically a “reactive” force, in that they can rarely act in a manner that prevents crime, they just come into the scene after the crime has happened. Oh, believe me, they would love nothing more than to prevent all crime, it just isn’t possible.

And it certainly isn’t possible when your own Justice Department orders you to ignore evidence, or shelve an investigation- that’s just chickens***. There’s no other term for what has happened, and the term also applies to whoever ordered this perversion of justice. Those two soldiers may still be alive and unharmed if not for these orders.

It’s rather perverse thinking that Homeland Security put out the “Rightwing Extremist” paper, but I have yet to find one on “Black Muslims in America”- perhaps there is one, but I expect we will see the “Jewish Threat Assessment” first.

You’ll be heartened to know that America’s national security isn’t totally compromised. The FBI presumably still has carte blanche to conduct five year witchhunts against leading American Jews. On account of the acute threat that they pose, you see.

And of course it’s unfair to blame the FBI’s abject failure just on institutional culture. At least some of it probably has to do with how they’ve embraced Obama’s pre-9/11 mindset and mused about shifting agents away from counterterrorism. At least Obama hasn’t made the remaining ones our front line of defense.

This is a sad state of affairs- I feel as if I have slipped down the rabbit hole, and entered Wonderland- everything seems so surreal. In terms of common sense, we have truly lost our way. Far too many people shrug their shoulders and say “so what?” but that is not the way of this world. At least not if you want this world to make sense for your children. 

There must be a single standard of justice here, and this justice must not be used as a political football. Just because someone is your color, or your religion has no bearing on his or her guilt or innocence.

All you Pi**ants on Capitol Hill got that?

    BLK: “why the FBI and other law enforcement agencies were ordered by the Justice Department to “back off of” Black Muslim converts.”>>

    Where is the evidence for this *extraordinary* claim?

    Oh, found it:

    “STRATFOR heard from sources…”


    A whole article based on the support of this (anonymous) toothpick?

      You, as usual, did not read the article before opening your mouth- there are three (3) sources cited- you don’t like the sources, tough, boy- truth hurts, don’t it?

      • Darrel says:

        You quote an article but you don’t provide a link to it. Just:

        I went there and actually did some keyword searches trying to find it but… nothing. Waste of time. Then I remembered this is all conspiracy conjecture balanced on some anonymous tip. Boring.

        The “source” I said I didn’t like, is the one that doesn’t exist. Someone saying they “heard from sources” is NOT providing a source. Silly bunny.

        We’ll get you thinking critically yet.


        • Blake says:

          If you couldn’t find it you are lazy,D- I should not have to do your work for you- it is there if you truly want to find it. It is a serious research and threat assessment firm.

  3. Blake says:

    Now, STRATFOR is a mainstream source, and not the only one, but then I did not want to cite source after source- by the time one wades through all of that one has tired of the argument. Let’s keep it clear and concise.
    Besides, Woodward and Bernstein had Deep Throat- he was anonymous- don’t readily dismiss these sources, unless you want to dismiss all of yours. The story is true- the question is, “Why?”

  4. I think that BHO is a black supremacist. Simplistic to sum things up that way? Maybe. But I still think that ideology is one of the roots of this administration.

    • Blake says:

      No, actually I do not think he identifies with black people- he just does whatever he needs to do, and will be whoever he needs to be to get his agenda of socialism advanced. In short, he is a whore who will do anything for a price.
      It is really as simple as that.
