I wonder why Bangladesh can do this sort of thing and we can't. But then Bangladesh doesn't have to fear being accused of Islamophobia.
Authorities in Bangladesh have arrested nearly 150 suspected militants and more than 11,000 others as part of a crackdown on extremism after a wave of brutal killings.
Police said they detained 145 suspected Islamist militants over four days of raids and that the rest were accused of everything from theft and drug dealing to violence.An officially secular but Muslim-majority nation, Bangladesh has seen a surge of targeted killings -- blamed on Islamist radicals -- that have claimed the lives of secularists, religious minorities andgay activists.
Police have said that most of the suspected militants were members of Jama'atul Mujahedin Bangladesh, a banned Islamist group.
Imagine if we had reacted to the Orlando Jihad with mass arrests of Muslim Brotherhood members or even the huge number of Muslims the FBI is watching for ISIS sympathies. Maybe we could actually get somewhere.
