Terrorists ask for FBI Sensitivity
Frankly, I'm not sensitive when it comes to terrorists; if we kill them all, the world will be a better place. Hizbolla are terrorists regardless of whether they are in Middle East or North America. Those who choose to identify with them should be jailed, at least. So, when they wrote to the FBI asking for a tolerant sensitivty, I wasn't very generous:

Twenty-five groups, including the Islamic Society of North America and the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, urged FBI Director Robert Mueller in a letter to instruct field offices and agents to avoid unwarranted profiling and to respect legal protections during questioning.
“We want the FBI, obviously, to protect our nation from those who do us harm, but we want them to focus on actual credible evidence of wrongdoing and not target people based on their ethnicity or religion or . . . political expression,” said Farhana Khera, head of Muslim Advocates, the lead drafter of the letter.
“We want to avert any kind of raw fishing expedition-type initiative,” he said.
Khera, whose group is the charitable arm of the 500-plus-member National Association of Muslim Lawyers, said activists decided to send the letter after learning that the FBI has increased its focus on the worldwide activities of Hizbullah after the group’s kidnapping of two IDF soldiers and subsequent Mideast fighting.
