NYPD Under Fire for Investigating Muslim Students Association


Pages: 1 2

“The government, through the police department, is working privately to destroy the private lives of Muslim citizens,” Professor Bayoumi said. His book is required reading for all students transferring to the school. Dr. Ronald Radosh of the Hudson Institute says it promotes “the view that Americans and New Yorkers in particular are completely Islamophobic.”

Investigations into some of these MSA chapters are justifiable based on information available in the public domain alone. A former Brooklyn College student, Syed Hashmi, pled guilty to providing material assistance to Al-Qaeda in 2010. In 1998, a Hamas front called the Islamic Association of Palestine hosted an event at Brooklyn College with the Council on American-Islamic Relations that featured a speaker who implored Muslims to engage in jihad. He even had the audience sing a song with the words, “No to the Jews, descendants of the apes.” The NYPD was looking into “militant paintball trips” by MSA members at Brooklyn College, a practice used by aspiring terrorists in the past. The police were also concerned about a member who had said he wanted to carry out a suicide bombing in Israel.

According to the information in the press, the NYPD was concerned about City College because it ran a website adherent to the Salafi strain of Islam, which is among the most hardline. The Brooklyn and Baruch MSAs frequently brought in Salafist speakers with extremist beliefs, and an agent reported that Baruch MSA members were “politically active and are radicalizing.” The chapter at Queens College was linked to a member of al-Muhajiroun, an Al-Qaeda affiliate. These are all good reasons for the NYPD to investigate these chapters.

Critics of the government’s domestic counter-terrorism efforts are trying to say that the NYPD’s investigation into the Muslim Students Associations chapters is a scandal. It should have been a scandal if the NYPD didn’t investigate them after learning about their extremism, possible involvement in terrorism, and Muslim Brotherhood roots.

College campuses are not somehow immune from the breeding of radical Islam. There are countless stories about how the education system is seen by the Islamists as an ideological battleground. The NYPD was not targeting random Muslim-American students based on their faith alone. It was responding to the realities of the times that we live in and acting on solid intelligence about specific chapters and individuals. The NYPD should be commended.

    The MSA is known to promote the ideology of the muslim settlers – they are not the typical High School Government Organization – the MSA means to ultimately subvert us here in this Great Nation. They treat Jewish students very badly and those kids would be their first victims. In fact, they suffer at the hands of muslim students. All investigations of The NYPD must cease immediately. The fact The NYPD has to infiltrate to combat these muslim monsters means they are doing their job to protect U.S. Citizens & America – keep it up! Investigate the ones calling out against The NYPD and if they are found to contain subversives then bring charges against them! A solution here is that all family members of subversives must be deported too and that would bring pressure on these miscreants! Then we would subvert them from within!

    These organizations in time, if not kept in check, will turn from sedition to treason which is a capital offense and should be handled as such.

  • StephenD

    So if someone just even mentions a charge of unequal treatment, the authorities in America scurry to prove otherwise. How about we admit it? We say, “Yeah, that’s right. We’re investigating you because evidence points to you and your organization. You don’t have to like it but you do have to put up with it…or leave.” Let the charges fly. What practical person would hold against you your scrutiny of such an organization? Their history proves your suspicion worthy. The P.C. folks can go pound sand. Maybe if we make it uncomfortable enough they’ll look for their education elsewhere…like Yemen. Protecting America is the priority, not the “feelings” of students in school. Are they being water-boarded or electric shocked? Then shut up!

    If I have nothing to hide, I should rather welcome investigating me instead of hiding
    behind claims of "civil rights violations"…

    The trouble is that we are treating these animals as normal people, which they are
    absolutely NOT….

    But the soolution to the problem is to expel them and their families back to where
    they came from, whether the White House tennant, his sidekick HOLDER or even
    their Supreme Court and SHAARIA adept judges like it or not…
    PERIOD
    And as to those believing in "MODERATE" Muslims, I will not stop asking until I
    get blue in the face, whether those Muslims dancing and giving out candy in the
    streets of QUEENS in 9/11 while peoiple were jumping to their deaths from the
    WTC windows, WERE ALSO MODERATES…! ! !

      Problem is, government can always find a pretext.

      • pagegl

        Especially if those being investigated are engaged in terrorist related activities.

      Jacob, regarding moderate versus radical muslims: The muslims who murdered 3,000 Americans on 9/11 WERE NOT radical muslims. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A RADICAL MUSLIM. They and others of their ilk are DEVOUT muslims. They are a fifth column in our country and need to be delt with as such. If the government won't do what is responsible and necessary then it's up to us regular citizens.

      Open season and no bag limit.

    "The MSA serves as a recruitment tool to bring Muslims into the Brotherhood," the Brotherhood and to recruit non-Muslims into Islam as a dawa entity, giving them the call to Islam." The Muslim Brotherhood — a group that's committed to jihad, sharia law and establishing Islamic domination in the U.S. The organization shares the same goals as al Qaeda, but some experts believe — as a long-term threat to American security — the Brotherhood is more dangerous than Osama bin Laden's followers.

    Fourth Reich…

  • myohmy

    this is perfect. What more can we ask for? Make a list of all those a'holes criticizing them for investigating this clearly terrorist supporting group and go arrest them all. After arresting them throw them in a cell with a big bubba and tell Bubba whatever he wants to do to them will be ingored,. Just like they want us to ignore their America hating muslim a'hole friends.

    We are all witnessing small parts to a
    "Big Picture."

      Well, I for one see the whole picture… and that's even more frightening, mind you!

    The Brooklyn College Faculty Council passed a resolution condemning the NYPD’s actions and 43 law professors at CUNY put out a joint statement saying that the rights of students may have been violated.

    These are the useful idiots that are teaching our young people? God help this country.

    Islamic terrorists have carried out more than 17,928 deadly terrorist attacks since 9/11 http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

    Terrorist attacks by other religions: NONE

    On 9/11, Muslims in America and Muslims in countries around the world celebrated the cruel murders of our people. THOUSANDS of Palestinian Authority Muslims celebrated with great joy the suffering and slaughter of our cherished 3,000. PA Muslims danced in the streets, passed out sweets and fired into the air. And Muslims want to celebrate even more with a victory mosque at Ground Zero.

    The rights of New Yorkers would be SEVERELY VIOLATED if the police did not investigate.

    Understand that this is a new type of Jihad called "Lawfare" (suing anyone who is anti-islamic) Islam has two wings, one violent and one lawful, which can operate apart but often reinforce each other. While the violent arm attempts to silence speech by burning cars when cartoons of Mohammed are published in Denmark, the lawful arm is skillfully maneuvering within Western legal systems, both here and abroad. Islamists with financial means have launched a "legal jihad," filing frivolous and malicious lawsuits with the aim of abolishing public discourse critical of Islam and with the goal of establishing principles of Sharia law, as the governing political and legal authority in the West. Its predatory, filed with expectation of winning, and undertaken as a means to intimidate, demoralize and bankrupt defendants. The lawsuits range in claims of defamation to workplace harassment.

    The anti-terrorist work of the NYPD is world-class. I'm counting on frontpagemag.com to keep us posted as this story develops.

    A formal investigation will no doubt be conducted by the Bloomberg city administration and the NYPD will eventually be exonerated and told to get back to work doing their jobs. But– and you can count on it!– the NYPD's exoneration will largely be ignored by the MSM. Or it might appear in print, buried on some obscure back page…

    Knew about Muslims being here. We bought land from them. You look at it and you can see that it was used as a training camp. Trenches and fox holes all over the 40 acres
