On foreign soil, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano expressed concern about "backlash"
in response to the Ft. Hood Massacre
Some people seem more concerned about "anti-Muslim backlash"
than Muslim violence against non-Muslims.
According to the AP report Homeland Chief Warns Against Anti-Muslim Backlash
, Napolitano was visiting Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates and assured her hosts she was fighting that backlash:
"The U.S. Homeland Security secretary says she is working to prevent a possible wave of anti-Muslim sentiment after the shootings at Fort Hood in Texas. Janet Napolitano says her agency is working with groups across the United States to try to deflect any backlash against American Muslims following Thursday`s rampage by Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, a Muslim who reportedly expressed growing dismay over the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan."
This is the same Janet Napolitano, mind you, whose Homeland Security Department issued a "report" on "Rightwing Extremism"
exhorting the police to watch out for military veterans,
for citizens who are against illegal immigration, abortion, same-sex marriage and one world government.
That "Rightwing Extremism"
report didn`t help us prevent the Ft. Hood Massacre
though, did it ?
