Islamic Society of Boston tells Muslims to stay quiet when approached by law enforcement, call the ACLU before speaking

It's one thing to protect your rights in the face of law enforcement questions, it is quite another to say "Insha'Allah we want to help as much as we can, but of course not put ourselves at risk either..."

So which is it?  Do you help, or do you clam up and wait for an attorney?  Your actions speak volumes about your loyalties, are you willing to keep up the charade for the sake of perceived safety among fellow Muslims?

From Breitbart April 25

Breitbart News has obtained an email sent from the Islamic Society of Boston to its members earlier this week. The email instructs members to "know their rights" and contact the ACLU for representation, while mentioning that "we want to help as much as we can, but..."

The Islamic Society of Boston was the mosque where Tamaerlan Tsarnaev was known to worship. Tsarnaev made two inappropriate outbursts during sermons at the ISB, but returned shortly after.

Assalamu Alaikum brothers and sisters,

We have been informed that the FBI may be starting to question some of the community members about the two suspects. Insha'Allah we want to help as much as we can, but of course not put ourselves at risk either. Seeking representation does not imply any guilt on your part but is simply a way of protecting your own rights. Please do not hesitate to use the information listed below or contact the ISB Cambridge Mosque for any other resources.

Jazak Allah KhairIslamic Society of Boston

You have the right to legal representation.
