More Islamophobia?

Four men were found guilty Monday of planning to bomb a synagogue and Jewish center in New York and plotting to shoot military planes with missiles.

James Cromitie, David Williams, Onta Williams and Laguerre Payen -- all from Newburgh, New York -- were charged with conspiring to blow up a synagogue and Jewish community center in the Riverdale section of Bronx, New York. They were also accused of planning to fire surface-to-air-missiles at the New York Air National Guard Base at Stewart Airport in Newburgh, New York.

. . . The jury spent some six weeks listening to testimony and undercover tapes made by the FBI informant who posed as a member of a Pakistani terror group.

The American Muslim community is the freest, richest, most educated and most secure in the history of the world.

But, if Americans oppose the construction of one mosque in one location (while acknowledging the right but questioning the wisdom of the construction), the media deems America guilty of vicious Islamophobia.

On the other hand, if Muslim converts inspired by international Islamic terrorists conspire to blow up synagogues and attack a military base . . . media silence.
