Muslim Students and the Jihad Against the NYPD

Pages: 1 2

Last year several Hellfire missiles finally put an end to Anwar Al-Awlaki, a leading Al-Qaeda figure who had been involved in several terrorist attacks carried out against the United States, including the Times Square Bomber and the Underwear Bomber. It has even been alleged that Al-Awlaki may have had pre-existing knowledge of the attacks of September 11.

Before all that though, Anwar Al-Awlaki had been the president of the Muslim Students Association at Colorado State University, home of the Rams and the future leader of external operations for Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Al-Awlaki’s path from MSA president to terrorist kingpin was a traditional one for MSA presidents.

While some campus groups are known for having members that go on to excel in business or science, Muslim Students Association members become leaders in a very particular and bloody field. The record shows that the terrorist leaders of tomorrow are the MSA members of today. And if you were going to recruit future leaders of Al-Qaeda, a good place to start would be at your local MSA chapter.

Wael Hamza Jalaidan, a co-founder of Al-Qaeda, had been the president of the MSA at the University of Arizona. The former MSA president at Columbia College went on to serve as Al-Qaeda’s procurement agent in the United States. The MSA president at the University of South Alabama became the spokesman for the Al-Qaeda affiliate in Somalia.

This is only a sliver of the complete record of the MSA’s terrorist involvement, some of which can be found in the recent Freedom Center pamphlet, “Muslim Hate Groups on Campus.” A recent Freedom Center ad listing some of the MSA’s terrorist kingpins elicited outrage from the MSA, but not a single fact based rebuttal. How could it when some of the most high profile terrorist raids and prosecutions involved MSA presidents and even MSA co-founders?

All that makes the current media furor over NYPD monitoring of MSA students so much more dishonest. A white supremacist or radical environmentalist organization with a similar track record would be routinely monitored in the same way and any complaints would be shelved. But the media insists on treating the MSA as if it were somehow special. As if it were above the law.

The Associated Press’ run of hostile stories on NYPD surveillance is in sharp contrast to its post-September 11 coverage. Ten years ago the AP was singing a different tune in a story reporting on FBI monitoring of the MSA and its involvement in fundraising for terrorist front group charities, including Benevolence International, an Al-Qaeda front. This time around there is no mention of Benevolence International or terrorist involvements and readers are left to assume that the NYPD is irrationally profiling Muslims.

George Vinson, an FBI veteran who served as California’s Homeland Security Advisor under two governors, said at the time, “Shame on law enforcement if we didn’t do this.” Now law enforcement is being shamed for doing it.

The NYPD, which is on the front line of the war on terror, stands watch over a city that has been hammered by Muslim terrorism like no other place in America, is being victimized in a smear campaign by Muslim groups, the media and politicians pandering to the jihad vote. It is being assailed by politicians from New Jersey to Chicago who have one hand out at mosque fundraisers while the other points a stern finger at the NYPD for doing its job.

To understand why the NYPD does what it does, we have to look at the results achieved. Last year the NYPD arrested an Al-Qaeda sympathizer who was planning to murder members of the armed forces returning from abroad, and it took down Ahmed Ferhani and Mohamed Mamdouh, who wanted to blow up an entire synagogue and kill as many Jews as possible. It did this before they struck, not afterwards, thanks to its undercover operatives.

NYPD undercover operatives infiltrate Muslim watering holes, listening to the chatter and monitoring anyone who seems eager to spill some infidel blood. And then they get their man.

    “We confront fundamentalism and terrorism by other means. We challenge established beliefs.”
    All the while you (Levins of the world) are “challenging” their beliefs they are plotting your demise. But, you already know that if you’ve given even a cursory glimpse to their texts which you say you challenge.
    Thugs understand only brute force. They are well behaved when they are weak (as their texts would tell them to be) and they are violent and oppressive when they are strong (as their texts would tell them to be). There is no in-between. The solution is simple. Make them weak and…keep them weak.

    Weakness is an invitation to evil.

    A bloody war is on the horizon and I will fight to save our country till there are no muslims left.

      Was the land of this COUNTRY stolen from the natives by christians?

      • Ghostwriter

        That not even the point of the article,randy! You're unbelievable!

      • Ron Carnine

        Well Randy you are a bit off the topic of this article but I think I will answer you since made your statement which seems to suggest that since the Christians stole this country from the natives it would be ok for the Muslim to steal this country from the Christians. The first Christians to settle in this country came here for the freedom this land offered. They were brought here by a secular company that wanted to open new territory for trading. The Christians paid for their passage with money and a contract which said they would buy their supplies from a parent company. Some of those who came weren't Christians. When the Christians dealt with the natives they paid for what they were sold with goods that the natives could not get anywhere else. Even when Manhattan was purchased it was with goods the natives could not get elsewhere. Emphasis is always placed on the European price of these items, but value is accounted by whether or not you can procure items from another source. The natives felt that they had a lot of land but none of the items the Europeans brought with them to trade. While the Christians were the first to settle and tried for good relationship with the natives, there were others who came who didn't give a hang about the natives. For the natives land and everything else was procured by the old thought that "might makes right" and for centuries the stronger tribes took from the weaker tribes by force. The weaker tribes would move to an area and take that land from a still weaker tribe. This was the way things were. But you supposition that Christians were always stealing from the natives isn't good history and certainly wouldn't justify the Muslim attempts to conquer America.

        incredibly stupid asswhipe. there is no country on earth that legitimately belongs to the religion of peace. the arabian peninsula belonged to various jews, pagans, christians, and others. it was stolen by islam. egypt, syria, libya, tunisia, morocco, turkey, syria, lebanon, were christian, and were stolen by the religion of peace. iran and iraq were zoroastrian, and were stolen by the religion of pure evil. india was hindu, and large portions were stolen by the religion of murder. now what were you puking about countries stolen by christians? you are stupid you deserve the murder that the religion of pure evil plans for you, but the rest of us dont.

    "The record shows that the terrorist leaders of tomorrow are the MSA members of today."

    This pattern holds not just in the US but in the UK as well, where many MSA presidents have "graduated" to the ranks of jihad or at least jihad support.

    Way to go, NYPD!

  • WilliamJamesWard

    I hate to relive 9/11 but no matter what that is my permanent vision 9/ll in both eyes. Bloomberg knows
    better than to tell NYPD how to do it's job protecting the citizens of NYC, if they believe he is on the
    side of the terrorists, he ends up in the East River floating under his turban. Levin is a complete idiot
    and a disgrace to America. When the gloves finally come off it will be such a relief……………William

    Islam is out to conquer the world, that includes America.
    Islam is the inferiority complex, its naturally arising emotion of hate, and the subsequent pursuit of superiority via a conquer, submit and enslave policy. They are tantamount to a human cancer metastasizing globally. This is reality.
    Liberal illusion, the prefered method of liberals to deal with reality by pretending they think their illusion is reality, is dangerous and will destroy our culture.
    If conservatives do not break from liberals and liberalism, there shall one time come the day we wake to find our culture gone, and worse, wake to find we must submit to Islam.
    Liberty, once lost, is lost forever. John Adams, America patriot, founding father and President.
    Woe will be humanity, when all are enslaved to Islamic insanity. Thank you.

    Islam is only a religion to dictate other people's lives. For instance it has been one year of Egypt revolution would it bring peace. There is a full article here:

    Also Tunisia going through a time now if it a good idea to put Sharia law into practise, there has been arguments within Tunisian MPs.

    Blessing and thank you frontpagemag your doing ana amazing job here.



  • Henry

    Good article, but it would be great if there was a way to not use terms like liberal, far left etc. in a negative way (although the article here is noting muted criticism from even those sources). Why? Because I think the point needs to be made over and over again that Islamism is a political ideology that is not compatible with American democracy, and American civil liberties. This should be an issue that draws bi-partisan support. I think there are plenty of Democrats and "shudder" liberals who might agree with you on these issues.

  • Jaladhi

    All Muslims are terrorists. Peirod.

    • curmudgeon

      if only that were true. muslims come in two categories. those that want to kill us now, and those that are willing to wait until later. those that want to kill us now are our friends. they keep us aware of what islam is all about. the ones that would wait and kill us later are your most dangerous enemies,, because they are winning. no, jaladhi, not all muslims are terrorists. some of them are peaceful invaders, who immigrate into western countries,, breed like rats at our expense, play nice while their multiple wife bastards overrun our country, and quietly wait for the day they are the majority, and it will be safe to kill us. personaly, i prefer the terrorists. the "peaceful" jihadis are the ones who will murder my family, kill my descendants, and descend my entire country in to the dark ages of ignorance and allah-worshiping superstition.

    Israel has been found favour by Allah and yet muslims have fought against them in the past:
    Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #40, "O Children of ISRAEL! Remember My Favour which I bestowed upon you…"
    Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #47, "O Children of ISRAEL!…"
    Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #122, "O Children of ISRAEL! Remember My Favour which I bestowed upon you and that I preferred you to the 'Alamin [mankind and jinn (of your time-period, in the past)]."
    The paragraph below even conveys the message that Allah even ordained children of Israel not to do this or that:
    Al-Maeda, Chapter #5, Verse #32, "Because of that We ordained for the CHILDREN OF ISRAEL that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind…"
    The above verses show that Allah was not against Israel. A question has to be raised: Should muslims be against non-muslim people?

  • zuma

    Quran does not encourage muslims to treat the children of Israel to be their enemies. The following is the proof:

    Taha, Chapter #20, Verse #47, "So go you both to him, and say: 'Verily, we are Messengers OF your Lord, so let the CHILDREN OF ISRAEL GO WITH US, AND TORMENT THEM NOT; indeed, we have come with a sign from your Lord! And peace will be upon him who follows the guidance!" The phrase, let the children of Israel go with us and torment them not, in the above extract gives us the fact that Quran does not demand muslim to treat the children of Israel to be their enemies.

    Muslims in the past did recue the children of Israel from their enemies. The following is the proof:

    Taha, Chapter #20, Verse #80, "O CHILDREN OF ISRAEL! WE DELIVERED YOU FROM YOUR ENEMY, We made a covenant with you on the right side OF the Mount, and We sent down to you Al-Manna and quails,:

    From the above extracts, it could come to the conclusion that Quran does not encourage muslims to treat the children of Israel as enemies.

    Your antisemitism gives you just as much in common with Muslims.
