An Ikhras reader alerted us to the below announcement, which invites young Muslims to become the instruments of their own oppression. It is sickening that the Council of Peoples Organization would direct young Muslims’ energies into working for the FBI. Can you imagine a respectable civil rights group like the NAACP or the Black Panthers or the American Indian Movement encouraging youth to join the ranks of the organization that has killed Fred Hampton, violated the constitutional rights of millions of Americans, busted antiwar organizations and is currently waging a witchhunt against Palestine solidarity activists? Is this supposed to count as a smart “strategy”? It takes an incredible amount of arrogance and delusion to think the FBI would become a more equitable, egalitarian organization if only enough Muslims were to join.
