If we lose this war, it will not be n the battlefield. It will be in the courtrooms, the colleges and wherever the naive congregate. — Dave Alexander
The New York Police Department (NYPD) is the latest of several law enforcement agencies—including the FBI—to succumb to the pressure of Islamic groups demanding changes in anti-terrorism investigations and training they claim discriminate against Muslims.
As part of a court settlement announced this month the NYPD will purge a highly acclaimed report (Radicalization in the West: The Homegrown Threat) that’s proven to be a critical tool in terrorism investigations. The NYPD will also limit the use of undercover officers and informants in Muslim communities and create a policy that bans religious discrimination. The department will “provide additional guidance to police officers at part of a settlement of lawsuits accusing the NYPD of improperly investigating Muslim groups,” according to a statement issued by the law enforcement agency. The change comes on the heels of an increase in terrorism attacks by radicals associated with groups like the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
The settlement stems from a 2013 lawsuit filed by three New York Muslims, two mosques and a Muslim nonprofit accusing the NYPD of “discriminatory surveillance” after 9/11.
If Lutherans believed as a tenet of their faith that others would need to be converted,
subjugated or killed and if Lutheran terrorists were blowing up things worldwide, I’d think we’d give those fellows a good looking over.
We face no terrorist threat from Lutherans.
If the NYPD and FBI tried to develop informants among the Muslims of New York City after 9/11, I’d say that was a wise move. That the lawyers will decide to erase the report is sad. Sad and foolish.
