Target: FBI Director James B. Comey
Goal: Investigate and question woman who said that Dearborn, Mich. should be attacked for its high Muslim population.
A woman and military professional called for a U.S. city to be “f***ed up” because it has the highest Muslim population in the country. In a tweet on her personal Twitter account, Sarah Beebe said: “Dearborn, MI, has the highest Muslim population in the United States. Let’s f*** that place up and send a message to ISIS. We’re coming.”
This is a clear threat and instigation of violence against innocent Muslims trying to live out their lives in peace. The reason there are so many Muslim individuals in Dearborn is because many refugees from the Middle East were settled there by the United States government so that they could have a community of people who understood one another. To imply that this community has anything to do with ISIS or that we should attack innocent Americans to “send a message” to them is appalling and goes against the American ideal of freedom of religion.
This woman’s message came shortly after the attacks in France that ISIS has claimed responsibility for. While the attacks are horrible, ISIS does not represent the vast majority of the world’s Muslims and most of the people they kill are Muslims. Plus, the organization’s goal is to turn the rest of the world against Muslims so that they can justify hating and attacking anyone who stands against them.
Threats like this cannot be tolerated, especially by someone who identifies as a “military professional,” as it says on her LinkedIn account. If the FBI is serious about protecting all U.S. citizens, then it needs to investigate this threatening message and make sure she knows that she can’t get away with instigating violence against innocent people. Sign to demand that the FBI launch an investigation into Sarah Beebe and her threatening tweet.
Dear Director Comey,
A woman who identifies as a “military professional” on her LinkedIn account, one Sarah Beebe, sent out a threatening message on Twitter that could easily instigate violence against United States citizens. In her message, she identified Dearborn, Mich. as the city with the highest Muslim population and said “Let’s f*** that place up and send a message to ISIS. We’re coming.”
You have a responsibility to protect all American citizens. Clearly, ISIS does not speak for or act on behalf of all Muslims since they have killed hundreds of thousands of Muslims already in their campaign to slaughter anyone who doesn’t agree with their skewed ideology. There is no reason to suspect the Muslim population of Dearborn of any wrongdoing, and it is sick to suggest that they should be attacked for their religious beliefs.
Muslims across the globe already face hatred and violence simply for their religion. Attacks like the ones in France recently make that violence worse. You must act to show the public that Islamophobic violence and threats will not be tolerated. Investigate this woman and the threat she made against the Muslim population of Dearborn.
