Alleged Terrorist is "Rosa Parks" of Muslim Community

The Washington Times runs a story today about something we reported on last Friday. Ahmed Omar Abul Ali met with Zubayr Al-Rimi, al Qaeda's #2 man in Saudi Arabia. Zubayr Al-Rimi was wanted in connection with the murders of nine Americans in Saudi Arabia before he was shot by Saudi police in a September shootout.

Meanwhile the New York Times runs an article yesterday in which Muslim-Americans compare the would-be Presidential assassin to Rosa Parks:

Our whole community is under siege," said Imam Johari Abdul-Malik, a spokesman for the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, where Mr. Abu Ali and his family worshiped. "They don't see this as a case of criminality. They see it as a civil rights case. As a frontal attack on their community."...

"The feeling I get here on a daily basis must be what it was like to be a member of Martin Luther King Jr.'s church following the case of Rosa Parks," said Imam Abdul-Malik. "People always ask, 'What is the latest from the courthouse?' "

Even as Mr. Ali's parents feign that their son couldn't be a terrorist, the article also goes on to describe the mosque attended by the family as Wahhabi. Nope, never heard of a pious Wahhabi wanting to kill Americans or anything.

1 Hmmm. Wasn't the civil rights movement about NON-VIOLENT protest??? Hard to imagine Rosa Parks packing heat.

3 Haven't we (liberals in America) conditioned criminals of minority backgrounds to shout this very same? Excuse for your crime? Religion, race, ethnic background. Worst part of it is that it works. Special attention for those that claim persecution was the reason they are crimials. The same old (I stole the TV from the store because my race or religion is being persecuted).
I don't think this dog will hunt much longer.

4 Rosa just refused to give up her seat to the white devil. Now, had she jumped up, thrown the driver down, and driven the bus into a crowded Jerry Lee Lewis concert, they might have a point.
