Surprise! Ok, maybe not.
(NYDN) — Cops and federal agents agree with Rep. Pete King that they don’t get a lot of tipsters from the Muslim community — but they say that’s true of many other communities.
Counterterrorism and intelligence sources from the NYPD and FBI say law enforcement faces the same problem with the Mafia, drug cartels and the MS-13 gang.
“Criminals are criminals. It gets dicier because Muslim extremists wrap their work in religion, but the smokescreens, the silence and intimidation are similar,” an FBI source said.
“What’s different is the risk — the extent of the damage, the number of innocent people who can be hurt.”
King has outraged many Muslim-Americans by convening hearings into homegrown radical Islamists and claiming the community has stonewalled terror investigations.
