Anonymous Geniuses: Revolution Muslim Group Obviously a Cop Conspiracy to Make Muslims Look Bad
Also making Muslims look bad? Muslims.
But I digress. This is what happens when you see the world through the lenses of grand conspiracy lenses. Every bad thing in the world becomes part of the grand conspiracy. In this case, that extremists in the US are really government agents:
A prime candidate for such a "pseudo movement groups run by government agents" in NYPD jurisdiction must surely be Youssef al-Khattab's (Joseph Cohen's) Revolution Muslim. Cohen/al-Khattab, a former Orthodox Jew, and friends - themselves Muslim converts - could always be relied upon to make Muslims look as dangerous as possible at opportune moments. Despite having no mandate to speak for Muslims or any grassroots support whatsover Revolution Muslim were mysteriously given a platform to vent their views to a national audience on numerous occasions through the mainstream news channels.
Revolution Muslim members had been banned from their local Mosques and Muslim groups were skeptical of the group from the beginning.The vast majority of Muslim Americans despise Revolution Muslim and their hate-filled ideology. The New York mosque the group frequented banned them from setting foot inside the premises, forcing them to preach on the street corner. Many Muslim Americans question whether Revolution Muslim are real Muslims, and instead hold them to be agent provocateurs who wish to smear Islam. Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), said Revolution Muslim is “an extreme fringe group that has absolutely no credibility within the Muslim community” and that the “wild and irresponsible things” they say has led to “a strong suspicion [in the Muslim American community] that they’re merely a setup to make Muslims and Islam look bad. ”
The grand irony here? The image of Yousef in the original post was stolen from our server. Old school Jawa fans will remember that we wrote many a post claiming Yousef was an FBI informant. Mostly just to mess with Yousef.
