Because of the unfortunate events at Fort Hood, America is now on another cycle of "America's Next Overreacting Terrorist Attack" hosted by Fox News, judged by closet-Conservative-racists, xenophobes and fake-Constitutional-zealots. When they asked, "Do we know if this is linked to terrorists, yet?", it was code for "Did some Muslims do it? You know that's what they do." Once we knew the shooters name, all "Hell" broke loose. "He had to be talking to some terrorists".
So you wonder what today's news is going to do? Shhhiiiitttt....
US federal prosecutors said Thursday they were moving to seize four mosques and a 36-story New York skyscraper from a non-profit Muslim group suspected of having ties to the Iranian government.Now every mosque is a money-funneling, hate-teaching terrorist machine.
The Alavi Foundation has been providing "numerous services" and illegally funneling funds to the Iranian government through money laundering, according to the office of US Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara.
Bharara filed a forfeiture action with a New York federal court to seize bank accounts owned by the group and a suspected front company, as well as the office tower and Islamic centers in the states of Maryland, Virginia, Texas and California.
"As today's complaint alleges in great detail, the Alavi Foundation has effectively been a front for the government of Iran," Bharara said in a statement.
"For two decades, the Alavi Foundation's affairs have been directed by various Iranian officials, including Iranian ambassadors to the United Nations, in violation of a series of American laws."

American Muslims have every right to pissed off at this country. We portray them as terrorists and attack their mosques and religious centers. We suspect their presence in every gruesome violent attack in recent memory. I completely understand wanting to commit the most foul middle-finger-salute ever to this country. A country that fails to realize that you breed more evil my honoring evil.
Yep, you honor evil by letting everyone know about it. There is a group of people plotting to hurt Muslims right now and guess what, where do you think they received the mental ammunition to make it happen? Us. We're guilty of singling out an entire group of people based off the action to few. Blacks know about this. Asians know about this. Germans know about this. Gays and Lesbians know about this. The poor knows about this. AMERICANS know about this. We're guilty of doing what has been done to us: Throwing an entire group of people under the bus, only to get up and come back with a 18-wheeler to get revenge.
