Contrary to GOP Rep. Peter King's assertion that Muslim-American
communities have not cooperated with law enforcement, more than one-fifth
of the post-9/11 Islamist terrorism cases originated with tips from Muslim
community members or involved the cooperation of the families of alleged
plotters. (Not included in our total were the tips from the local community
that led to investigations into the disappearances of Somali-American
youths in Minnesota to fight for Al-Shabaab, because it is difficult to put
an exact number on the cases affected by those tips.)

Tips from Muslim communities and families warned authorities, for instance,
about the danger posed by Daniel Boyd, who was planning to attack the
Quantico base in 2009, as well as the "D.C. 5," who tried to join militant
groups in Pakistan the same year.

A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they
shall never sit in.

-Greek proverb

“Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed immaturity.
Immaturity is the inability to use one’s understanding without guidance
from another. This immaturity is self- imposed when its cause lies not in
lack of understanding, but in lack of resolve and courage to use it without
guidance from another. Sapere Aude! ‘Have courage to use your own
understand-ing!—that is the motto of enlightenment.

--Immanuel Kant
