“Islamophobia, bigots and xenophobes!” is the cry we hear from all those tied to the religion of pieces called Islam when anyone points out the behavior of Islamic terrorists, their history and the teachings of the Quran. Such was the case with Saadiq Long, who was promoted by the likes of MSNBC, Mother Jones and even Glenn Greenwald as an example of how Muslims should not be surveilled. However, it appears that Mr. Long, along with several family members were just arrested near the Turkey-Syria border and charged with being members of an Islamic State cell.
PJ Media reports:
A man, who just two years ago was the poster boy for the far-Left media’s attacks against the U.S. government’s no-fly list for “unfairly” targeting Muslims, finds himself and several family members sitting in a Turkish prison — arrested earlier this month near the Turkey-Syria border as members of an ISIS cell.
It’s a long way from 2013 when Saadiq Long’s cause was being championed by MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Glenn Greenwald, and Mother Jones, and was being represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) terror front.
His story got considerable media attention when his CAIR media representatives here pushed the story that Long wanted to return to his native Oklahoma from his current home in Qatar to visit his ailing mother but couldn’t because he was on the TSA’s no-fly list. They said his case represented institutional “Islamophobia.”

And who do you think showed up to defend Long? None other than designated terror, Muslim Brotherhood front group, and Hamas supporting Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)
After CAIR pushed Homeland Security, they removed Long temporarily so that he could return back to Oklahoma to visit his mother. However, during that time the FBI kept him under constant surveillance, according to his own claim.
There was later an incident with local police and the FBI. He was then kept from returning to his home in Qatar because he was, once again, placed back on the no-fly list.
So, what did he do? He got on a bus and traveled to Mexico, boarded a plane there and flew home.
Keep in mind that Qatar just took in Ahmed “ClockFraud” Mohamed, received the five Taliban leaders that Obama illegally swapped for Bowe Bergdahl, have spent millions on the Islamization of the West and is a hotbed for Islamic jihad.
His arrest has been confirmed by US and Turkish officials. MSNBC and others are “not-so” surprisingly silent.
