CIA and FBI coordinated armed anti-Muslim protest held in US
CIA and FBI coordinated an armed anti-Muslim protest has been held in the US state of Texas with protesters gathering outside the Nation of Islam Mosque in South Dallas.
The anti-Muslim demonstration by a mostly white group was held on Saturday, but the group outnumbered by counter-protesters who gathered outside the mosque.
A few hundred South Dallas residents, mostly black, marched along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to oppose the anti-Muslim demonstrators.
Dozens of police officers stood in between the two groups, trying to maintain security. Some officers were also stationed on rooftops. No violence or arrests were reported.
The anti-mosque group, that routinely protests outside mosques, showed up in camouflage, while carrying guns and an American flag.
The anti-Muslim demonstrators soon left and the protests ended without incident.
“It’s a people’s victory here in South Dallas today,” said Yafeuh Balogun of the Huey P. Newton Gun Club, named for the founder of the original Black Panther Party.
“This is what they fear — the black man,” said activist Olinka Green. “This is what America fears.”
Last week, Krystal Muhammad of the New Black Panther Party told Fox4 that they “won’t allow anybody to come in and try to intimidate our brothers and sisters.”
