Waiting on Gannett News to weigh in.
The group responsible for an armed anti-Muslim protest at a Dallas-area mosque last weekend posted a list containing the names and addresses of dozens of Muslims and “Muslim sympathizers” to Facebook on Wednesday, the Dallas Morning News reports. According to the Huffington Post, the list contained personal information about more than 60 people pulled from an official document of individuals who signed up to speak at a city council debate on “Muslim influence” earlier this year. “This is the first time I’ve been slightly alarmed,” the head of a local Islamic group tells the Morning News. “They were just being good citizens to show up and be a part of the democratic process. Now they are targets.”
David Wright led the armed protest outside the Irving Islamic Center last weekend and appears to be behind the list, which has since been removed from Facebook, the Morning News reports. While Wright’s organization, BAIR, states its intention isn’t to intimidate anyone, people whose names were on the list say it couldn’t have been meant for any other reason than to put a target on their backs.
