Radical Islamic groups like the Muslim Brotherhood have equated "Islamophobia" to racism "so that people are afraid to speak out," former assistant U.S. attorney Andy McCarthy said on Thursday.

"They want to establish these enclaves in the West where, basically, Muslims move in and they get encouraged to integrate but not assimilate — and they have insolation and the encouragement of each other," McCarthy told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. "They can stew in this ideology without Western principles breaking in.

Story continues below.

"Setting up these enclaves where this ideology is freely bantered about and nobody really can either confront it or refute it is giving a comfort level to people like Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to get steeped in this," he said.

Authorities said the 19-year-old Boston Marathon bombing suspect wrote a note before he was arrested inside a boat on April 19 that the bombings four days earlier were retribution for U.S. military actions against Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Tsarnaev, who is being held on federal charges that could bring him the death penalty, called the Boston victims "collateral damage," like the Muslims killed in America's wars.

He said that his 26-year-old brother, Tamerlan, who died in a police shootout hours earlier, was now a martyr in paradise.

"These people commit these heinous, heinous acts because they are in the grip of an ideology that is very, very powerful and has been causing people to commit these kinds of acts for about 14 centuries," McCarthy said.
