Medium.com Over the last eighteen years the American Muslim community has faced the largest counter intelligence program in the history of the United States. This surveillance today is made up of layers of information collected by local police departments working with customs and border patrol, ICE, and the FBI through the joint terrorism task force (JTTF).
The city of San Diego calls these streetlights “the world’s largest smart city platform.” When asked about who designed this platform and why they would be surrounding the majority of the Mosques in the city, the cities sustainability department and police department would not answer this question.
Many of the Mosques in the city of San Diego are under direct surveillance from these streetlights and while the city says this is passive information, with the joint terrorism task force agreements in place, federal agencies can monitor these cameras whenever they want. They can see all traffic coming in and out of all the Mosques in the city and in some cases if the audio technology was turned on they could in many cases pick up direct conversations.
Technology like this developed by companies in the United States is being sold to China and used to police Uyghur Muslim populations.According to CAIR, In the Quran it states clearly, “Do Not Spy,” these layers of surveillance have created an environment of distrust amongst many Muslims.
