Detroit News: FBI Denies Aerial Surveillance of Muslim Americans

Islamic Center of America

The FBI in a meeting with the Muslim and Arab community in Detroit says fears that is using aerial surveillance to spy on Muslim Americans are unfounded.

Concern was expressed after the Detroit News reported that the FBI flew an airplane with high tech tracking devices at least seven times over the Detroit metropolitan area.

During a meeting at the office of the Arab American News in Dearborn, the FBI denied it is targeting any religious or ethnic groups with its spying.

Community leaders from the Arab and Muslim community seemed satisfied.

“The community is not being surveilled,” said Osama Siblani. publisher of the Arab American News. “There is no mass surveillance of any nature. We support what ever the FBI is doing to protect our country and nation, as long as they are doing it under the constitution and under the law and they are targeting criminals.”
