Leftists and Islamic supremacists are enraged this week over the revelation that the FBI and NSA, despite their officially politically correct See-No-Islam Hear-No-Islam Speak No-Islam stance, have had four prominent Muslim leaders in the U.S. under surveillance. They have appealed to Barack Obama to stop this surveillance and all related monitoring of Muslims immediately, which he almost certainly will, and have mounted a Twitter campaign based around the bitterly ironic hashtag #IAmATarget, which applies more to infidels in the line of jihad attacks than it ever will to Muslim leaders in the United States.

The only problem with all the righteous indignation that Leftists and Islamic supremacist leaders have summoned about this surveillance is that it is entirely justified. The uproar began with an exposé titled “Under Surveillance: Meet the Muslim-American Leaders the FBI and NSA Have Been Spying On,” written by none other than Glenn Greenwald, along with another far-Left journalist, Murtaza Hussain. Greenwald and Hussain purport to demonstrate that five Muslim leaders whom the NSA and FBI have been watching are undeserving of such scrutiny, as they’re honest, patriotic Americans whose only misdeed is to oppose administration policies.

This is, of course, absurd. Opposing U.S. government policies from the Left won’t get you placed under surveillance; it’ll get you media adulation, foundation grants, and awards from philanthropic groups. Obama’s IRS persecutes conservative groups, not Leftists, and several military presentations in recent years have claimed that “right-wing extremists” are a terror threat, with nary a word about genuinely violent Left-wing extremist groups such as the Occupy movement and others.

Bizarrely, and perhaps because they couldn’t find enough Muslims to fit their victim paradigm, Greenwald and Hussain include in their list of persecuted Muslims Hooshang Amirahmadi, an Iranian-American professor at Rutgers, who is a professing atheist; for the actual Muslims on their list, they gloss over the genuine reasons why the FBI and NSA have placed these men under surveillance:

In 1991 the FBI discovered documents in a Muslim Brotherhood

Did they mention that Greenwald never met an anti-American cause he didn't champion?

I am confused are people here for more or less government? So people are not concerned at all about the idea of NSA spying on american citizens, including attorney client meetings.

4?

Only four?


The number 40,000 would be more appropriate.

But still woefully short of reality.

Dear Mr. Spencer, I am very surprised to see Valerie Jarret's name missing from your list.

How about let's just say out loud what no one wants to say. Anyone with the name Islam attached is a threat to the nation. Because Islam is evil.

Oh by the way these would be your every day Muslims. Not radical Muslims, not extremist Muslims, just the run of the mill average Muslim who does whatever his cleric tells him to do. How do I know this? I’ll tell you the same thing I said on a radio interview last week. Because I’ve been in their filthy land. And the Arab Muslim is a vile entity.

Islam is an oppressive religion. That’s why they shouldn’t even be allowed in the U.S. They aren’t interested in freedom of religion. They wish Sharia Law to rule the world. Don’t believe me? They are pushing for it in England right now.

The day will come where the only answer to Islam in this country is brutal violence. Because the Muslim is one of two things---one of the “radicals.” Or following the radicals. Usually they will keep it toned down when not in their land—but as you can see in Europe and now here the Progressive is giving them free reign more and more and the real nature of Islam comes out. And it is a vile religion. Yes yes Mr Progressive, Christians burned people at the stake once as well—and we haven’t done that for hundreds of years. That would be the difference between us and Islam, who needs to be regarded as an enemy to this nation and if continues to attempt to force its beliefs on us should be met with violence in defense of this nation.

Did Glenn bother to read the pleadings in the Holy Land Foundation case? He would have realized that there is a wide network of so-called "muslim rights advocates" that are all muslim brotherhood fronts. And that most certainly includes CAIR.

Hopefully obama will lie about this, too.

Why aren't Huma Abedin, Anthony the Weiner's wife, who is Hillary Clinton's assistant, under FBI surveillance? She has family connections to the Muslim Brotherhood. Also, there's Obama's Iranian controller, Valerie Jarrett, who has an her own (illegal?) Secret Service detail providing protection 24/7. But the worst Mohammedan that deserves, not only FBI surveillance, but to be in FBI custody, is B. Hussein Obama himself.
