The Bureau of American Islamic Relations (BAIR) is an anti-Muslim hate group known for showing up armed at mosques as a fear tactic to intimidate worshippers.
But on Saturday they showed up at a South Dallas mosque and were quickly outnumbered by the black self-defense groups — the Nation of Islam, New Black Panther Party, and the Huey P. Newton Gun Club — who stood united and were also armed.
“This is an armed defense maneuver, making sure that our communities are safe and secure from any insurgents coming in,” said Krystal Muhammad, a member of the New Black Panther Party, who was armed with a large shotgun. “We won’t allow anybody to come in and try to intimidate our brothers and sisters.”
BAIR previously stalked Muslims in Irving, Texas, and then again at the Islamic Association of North Texas. While they may have instilled fear in the worshippers before, their plan was almost immediately diverted on Saturday as they were only there for a few minutes before police asked them to leave for their own safety.
“We will not allow them to come to South Dallas with arms and intimate our people,” Yafeuh Balogun, spokesman for the Newton Gun Club said. “It’s a people’s victory here in South Dallas today.”
