April 16, 2014 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – ISNA and other domestic jihadist groups are today celebrating the dismantling of the New York Police Department’s counter-terrorism surveillance unit.
ISNA and HAMAS you say?
Absolutely: “Federal District Court Judge Jorge Solis in a 2009 post prosecution decision arising out of the Holy Land case, was very clear in this matter, stating: "The government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, NAIT, with NAIT, the Islamic Association for Palestine, and with Hamas," U.S. District Court Judge Jorge Solis said in the July 1, 2009, ruling.." [source, The Investigative Project, Federal Dist. Court filing].
The effect of this move is far-reaching; NYPD’s new commissioner William Bratton ended with a stroke of the pen what the American Islamist community rabble couldn’t stop through the courts.
In a February 4, 2014 decision, United States District Court for the District of New Jersey William J. Martini found that the purpose of NYPD’s surveillance program was not Islamophobic, but, “…rather to find Muslim terrorists hiding among ordinary, law-abiding Muslims…” and was therefore legal and not violative of the civil rights of New York area Muslims. [source, Syed Farhaj Hassan, The Council of Imams in New Jersey, Muslim Students Association of the U.S., et al, v New York City, Civ. No. 2:12-3401]
But merely losing the matter outright at the U.S. District Court level didn’t impede the Islamists. Instead they took the political approach, continuing to malign NYPD officials, demanding that the program should be ended because it was Islamophobic.
Translation: Islamophobic = telling the truth.
And that is exactly what William Bratton did, absent any legal or intellectual justification for the move.
We must assume that Bratton’s personal feud with former NYPD commissioner, the widely respected Raymond Kelly, was a motivating factor in his controversial decision, the other being that he, like so many big city top cops, is a trembling dhimmi, more afraid of being called derogatory names by proven associates of HAMAS, than protecting New York City from Islamic terrorism.
In its presser ISNA speciously suggests all manner of illegality and impropriety, “…Spying on communities simply because of their religious affiliation is not only unconstitutional, but also further erodes the trust and cooperation between law enforcement and communities which they have sworn to protect. This abuse of authority should be reviewed and elected officials should institute public policy that will insure that this sort program will never be implemented again."
In the face of Judge Martini’s decision we classify ISNA’s statement as unadulterated horse shit.
There was no illegality here, and curiously, since the inception of the surveillance program, NY has been spared a repeat of 9/11, with at least 10 plots having been discovered and stopped. [see, List of Unsuccessful Terrorist Plots Post 9/11, Wiki]
Most court actions taken by the Islamists are merely nuisance lawsuits, designed not to win in court but to gain political advantage especially knowing that the media will always take the side of radical Muslims over the safety of the American public, yes we are referring here to the Associated Press.
So ill conceived was the Islamist’s case again New York that the plaintiffs were ruled to have no legal standing to adjudicate the matter in the first place, had produced zero evidence of injury in fact and additionally had failed to even state a claim.
This is how 21st Century America works, facts don’t matter, carefully considered legal opinions don’t cut it, all that counts is that revolutionary Islamic organizations, many of which have open access to the WH, can through political means, force the U.S. to dismantle the counter-terrorism measures which have kept us safe since the attacks of September 11, 2001.
So while ISNA, MSA and their ilk are today whooping it up, celebration the taking of another scalp, American national security takes another hit at a time when it can least afford it.
