An armed-anti Islamic group that protested the arrival of Syrian refugees in the US published the names and addresses of people they called ‘Muslim sympathizers’ yesterday.
The list, which has since been taken down after a public backlash, was posted on Facebook by David Wright, group spokesman for the Bureau of American Islamic Relations (BAIR).
Wright said the list showed the people who had supported an Islamic tribunal in Irving, which has been characterized as a ‘Sharia court’.
Mr Wright was among a number of gun-toting demonstrators that surrounded a mosque in Texas on Saturday screaming: ‘Stop the Islamization of America!’
The group of around 15 people outside the Islamic Center of Irving carried placards in an apparent protest against accepting Syrian refugees.

“Neutralizing and eradicating” the “Islamic State” (“IS”) is a goal all countries agree upon, France’s top diplomat Fabius said in a Friday interview to the French RTL radio.

The international campaign in Syria should focus on targeting the IS command in the Syrian city of Raqqa, according to Fabius.
