The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), publicly lauded cooperation with law enforcement in May, following the arrest of six men who plotted to attack Fort Dix. "Working with law enforcement on the local level yields effective partnerships between the Muslim American community and law enforcement," an MPAC release said.
Contrast that with what MPAC executive director Salam al-Marayati said about Muslims serving as informants at the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) conference in July 2005 in Dallas.
Al-Marayati: So, number one, we reject any effort, notion, suggestion that Muslims should start spying on one another. In fact if you look at the Lodi case, the disaster of Lodi is that Muslims were reporting each other to the authorities saying, "Oh, this person is an extremist" and the other camp said the same things so both of them got in trouble. So, this is the model not to follow.
