NYPD “Racial Profiling” Video Was Staged…by Muslims

For the umpteenth time: ISLAM IS NOT A RACE! But that doesn’t stop Muslim race hustlers who make money off fake videos. They should donate every penny earned to the NYPD…or a good lawyer.

via Viral NYPD Racial Profiling Video Was Staged | The Smoking Gun.

OCTOBER 21–In a cynical and duplicitous attempt to capitalize on New York City’s documented racial profiling problems, a pair of bloggers have created a video purporting to show an NYPD officer stopping and frisking a pair of Muslim men for the crime of wearing traditional Islamic garments.

But the viral video is a sham, a staged production aimed to go viral and pile up views and YouTube channel subscriptions for its young creators, Brooklynites Adam Saleh and Sheikh Akbar, who get a piece of the revenue generated by ads that run before their videos play.

The duo’s video operation–which is named “TrueStoryASA”–has racked up 60 million YouTube views and has more than 661,000 subscribers on the video-sharing site. While most of the pair’s videos involve pranks, sidewalk attempts at comedy and social commentary, or “Muslim-related stuff,” their latest clip seeks to latch onto an issue that has troubled many New Yorkers and tainted the NYPD.

The purported “Racial Profiling Experiment” undertaken by Saleh and Akbar was filmed on 126th Street in the Willets Point section of Queens, across from Citi Field, home to the New York Mets. The video was shot on a street where many of the businesses–tire outlets, auto repair firms, muffler shops–have been closed or relocated as part of a city redevelopment effort.

An NYPD source who last night viewed the clip at TSG’s request said that an officer from the local police precinct (the 110th in nearby Elmhurst) would not be standing patrol by himself on a deserted street in the middle of the day. As for the purported officer’s frisking technique, the NYPD veteran laughed, “That’s not how they teach you in the academy.” He also remarked that it was “inconceivable” that an officer would ask a Muslim man, “Why are you dressed like this?”

By obscuring the purported cop’s face, Saleh and Akbar have sought to avoid the immediate debunking of their clip, which has already garnered in excess of 30,000 “thumbs up” on YouTube and more than 5200 comments. In their supposed effort to expose racial profiling, the video’s creators have inexplicably–yet conveniently–provided cover for the rogue patrolman, now an electronically blurred boogeyman.

A second source, a recently retired NYPD detective who also watched the “profiling” video at TSG’s request, branded it an “obvious hoax” intended to “smear” police.

If that was the intent of Saleh and Akbar, they appear to have succeeded. According to The Huffington Post, the video provides a “small glimpse into the ugly world of racial profiling.” The news site later updated its piece to indicate that the clip’s authenticity could not be verified, and that NYPD officials are reviewing the video.

Since the video was uploaded to YouTube, Saleh, Akbar, and their friends have been aggressively promoting the clip on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. “Spread the word and bring an end to Racial Profiling,” Saleh wrote. Sheikh told his followers that, “Racial Profiling goes against all equal rights.” He added, “Never expected a reaction like this.”

Saleh and Akbar have not responded to TSG messages sent via Facebook, where each man describes himself as an “Actor/Director.”



Jihad Watch notes that Hamas-linked CAIR was quick to tweet out the video, before realizing the very CAIR-like production was a hoax: Hamas-linked CAIR’s Hooper demands Muslim vloggers apologize for hoax video.

Architect Redesigns Church Destroyed on 9/11 to Resemble Churches that Became Mosques

via A Church Near Ground Zero Reimagined – WSJ

Mr. Calatrava designed the church and will attend its groundbreaking on Saturday. If everything goes according to schedule, the building should be finished in 2016 or early 2017.

While the 9/11 Memorial, with its twin reflecting pools and alleys of trees, masterfully creates an opportunity for quiet reflection, there’s also something to be said for a sanctuary with four walls—and perhaps for lighting a memorial candle, no matter what religion you practice, or even if you practice no religion at all.

“All the circumstances around 9/11, the memorial embodies that very well,” Mr. Calatrava said as he sat in the stately Park Avenue townhouse that does double duty as his home and his office.

“This is what I want; this is what the church wants: a very ecumenical place; they would like to have 24 hours the church open.”

But Mr. Calatrava conceded the public has the last word.

Hopefully the public reject it. But the archdiocese seems on board with the ecumenical, non-church church idea: St. Nicholas Church, Destroyed on 9/11, to Rebuild With Byzantine Design

church-1-articleLarge-v3

the reflection looks more mosque-like in this rendering

That a Spanish architect should design a modern Byzantine church in Lower Manhattan for the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, based on buildings in Turkey that were used for Islamic worship, goes to the heart of the message the archdiocese says it hopes to send with the $20 million project. The new St. Nicholas is to open by early 2016.

“If I may quote Jesus, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all people,’ ” said the Rev. Mark Arey, a spokesman for the archdiocese. “It will be open to everyone: the believer, the unbeliever, the Orthodox Christian, the atheist. Whoever you are, this is a space that you can come into and find some meditative solace.”

The architect claims it’s inspiration is two Byzantine churches…later conquered and converted into mosques.

Other than the barely discernible cross on top of the dome there is nothing on the exterior or interior for that matter that even suggests it is a church, never mind a rebuilt St. Nicholas.

At one point the city refused to allow St. Nicholas to rebuild. Was making it a mosque-like structure that would not offend Muslims a requirement for allowing them to rebuild?

This is the Flight 93 Memorial to Islamic Terrorists and Ground Zero Mosque redux.

 

 

Yale, Colombia, DC host Tunisian Muslim Brotherhood Leader

How is a Muslim Brotherhood leader who espouses jihad permitted to travel and speak in the U.S.? via The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch.

The Tunisian Muslim Brotherhood has issued a press release reporting that Rachid Ghannouchi, the leader of the Tunisian Ennahda Party, visited the US in late September. According to the release, Mr. Ghannouchi was invited to speak at Yale and Columbia Universities as well as at the US Institute of Peace (USIP):

Rachid GhannouchiWASHINGTON, Oct. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Rached Ghannouchi, the leader of Tunisia’s Ennahdha (Renaissance) Party, visited the U.S. this week to urge lawmakers to publicly support democracy as Tunisia heads for Parliamentary elections on October 26. As the first, post-revolution Arab Spring country to conduct what are expected to be free and fair elections, Tunisia offers a sharp contrast to the region’s extremes.

‘Tunisia’s democratic journey is still nascent – and a visible support for the electoral process and its outcome will be crucial not just for Tunisia, but for the whole region and the U.S.,’ said Ghannouchi. ‘A lot is riding on Tunisia’s elections – it will be one of the most consequential electoral contests the world community will witness.’

Ghannouchi was invited to speak at Yale University in Connecticut and Columbia University in New York, and also addressed the U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington, DC this week. He reiterated that Tunisia’s consensus-based model will showcase that Islam and democracy can co-exist in the Arab world.

Read the rest here.

Despite his claim that Ennahda rejects any form of terrorism, in  May 2013, the GMBDW reported that Mr. Ghannouchi had  called for young people to realize that “Jihad belongs in Palestine.” In 2011, Mr. Ghannouchi gave an Arabic-language interview in which he predicted the end of Israel, a viewpoint which is not surprising given that he has had a long history of ties to Palestinian extremism and calls for terrorism. In February 2009, Mr. Ghannouchi was a signatory to the so-called Istanbul declaration that called for the opening of a “third jihadist front” against Israel. The statement was the result of a conference held under the auspices of the Global Anti-Aggression Campaign (GAAC), an international Islamist umbrella group comprised of Islamist scholars tied to the Global Muslim Brotherhood as well as Salafi-Jihadi scholars including individuals designated as terrorists by the US government.

NYC: Judge Accepts Muslim’s Guilty Plea in 1998 U.S. Embassy Bombings

…that killed 224 people. via Judge Accepts Guilty Plea in 1998 Embassy Bombings – NYTimes.com.

A federal judge in Manhattan said on Tuesday that he would accept a guilty plea from a terrorism defendant who would face a maximum 25-year prison sentence for charges stemming from Al Qaeda’s 1998 conspiracy to bomb two United States Embassies in East Africa.

The judge, Lewis A. Kaplan of Federal District Court, had recently questioned the wisdom of a deal in which prosecutors allowed the defendant, Adel Abdul Bary, 54, to plead guilty to three counts that carried the maximum 25-year sentence.

Mr. Bary, who was arrested in Britain in 1999 and brought to the United States in 2012, could spend less time in prison if credited with the roughly 15 years he has already served, largely during his unsuccessful extradition battle.

In his ruling, Judge Kaplan said his initial concern was that 25 years “may be too lenient.” But he said prosecutors had suggested that their ability to win a conviction on the charges relating specifically to the embassy bombings — in which 224 people died — was uncertain, and the evidence was “not as strong” as evidence establishing Mr. Bary’s participation in a conspiracy to kill Americans, one of the counts to which he pleaded guilty.

The judge also wrote that if Mr. Bary received credit for the earlier prison time, he would serve until he was in his 60s. “By that time,” Judge Kaplan noted, “he will have spent a substantial amount of his adult life in prison.” He said the government’s decision “was a reasonable one.”

Prosecutors have said Mr. Bary once led the London cell of Egyptian Islamic Jihad, a terrorist group led by Ayman al-Zawahri, now the leader of Al Qaeda. They say Mr. Bary helped Osama bin Laden pass messages to the news media claiming responsibility for the bombings and containing future threats. He is to be sentenced on Jan. 12.

NY: Fugitive Afghan soldiers now seeking asylum in U.S.

via Lawyer for fugitive Afghan soldiers says US government is fighting bid for release – Metro – The Boston Globe.

2 of 3 Mohammad’s: Major Jan Mohammad Arash, Captain Noorullah Aminyar, Captain Mohammad Nasir Askarzada

 BATAVIA, N.Y. — The lawyer for three Afghan soldiers who disappeared last month from a military training camp on Cape Cod said Wednesday that federal officials are fighting their bid to be released from jail as they seek asylum.

“They’re not a security risk at all,” their lawyer, Matthew Borowski, said after the soldiers appeared at brief hearings in the Department of Justice’s immigration court. “They went through the right process of coming here legally and seeking asylum, and they shouldn’t be kept in detention in a prisonlike setting here.”

Borowski, a Buffalo lawyer handling the case for free, said he had hoped immigration Judge Steven Connelly would release the soldiers on bail Wednesday. Instead, he said, he wound up asking the judge to postpone the hearing so he could prepare, after it became clear US Immigration and Customs Enforcement opposed granting bond.

Marvin J. Muller III, the immigration prosecutor, declined to comment after the hearing. In court, he asked the judge to make the continuance brief. Connelly continued the three cases to Oct. 8.

The hearing capped an embarrassing series of events for US and Afghan officials. The soldiers are among five Afghan officers who vanished last month from training to improve their skills fighting drugs, terror, and other crimes in Afghanistan. The Central Asian nation, which inaugurated a new leader this week, is considered extremely dangerous.

A week before the soldiers disappeared from Cape Cod, two Afghan police officers skipped out on a Drug Enforcement Administration training session in Virginia. They were later found in Buffalo and have since returned home.

The Embassy of Afghanistan has expressed a hope that the three Afghan soldiers would return to their wives and children. On Wednesday, the Afghan government did not send a representative to the hearing and did not respond to requests for comment.

To qualify for asylum, the soldiers must show they fear persecution based on their race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular group that faces persecution.

Immigration lawyers said the soldiers could argue for asylum based on their support for American soldiers, fears of the Taliban, and even the publicity surrounding their cases.

“These aren’t just any soldiers,” said Matthew Kolken, a Buffalo immigration lawyer who is not involved in the case. “These are soldiers that have been invited to the United States to participate in an exercise by the American government, which means they are more at risk to be targeted by the Taliban upon their return.”

Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies in Washington, urged the federal government to thoroughly investigate the Afghans’ cases.

“These guys may be fine, or they may be dangerous,” she said. “I don’t have faith in our asylum system to really determine that, and that’s very concerning.”

She added that agencies hosting similar trainings, such as the DEA or Camp Edwards, should monitor visitors’ whereabouts more closely in future. “This strikes me as a failure in supervision on the part of their sponsoring agency, the people who were responsible for them,” she said.

But Lieutenant Colonel James Sahady at Camp Edwards, which hosted the training camp, said the rest of the 200 participants from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, and Mongolia returned home. “Nobody else attempted to defect,” he said.


Send them home and don’t bring any more to the U.S. for training. Train them at one of the hundreds of bases outside the U.S. that taxpayers are forced to fund.

Has the entire U.S. military leadership been corrupted? Bringing Afghan Muslims who have shown a propensity to kill U.S. soldiers into the U.S.? Sending the 101s Airborne Division to fight Ebola at ground zero of the deadliest outbreak in recent memory?

New York: bin Laden son-in-law gets life in prison

If he’s not in solitary, he’ll still preach jihad. via Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law sentenced to life in prison – NY Daily News.

 

A Manhattan judge sentenced Sulaiman Abu Ghaith — who stood by Bin Laden’s side calling for more attacks on Americans in the hours after the mass murders of Sept. 11 — to life in prison Tuesday so he can “never again” engage in murderous conduct.

“You, sir, in my assessment, are committed doing everything you can to assist in carrying out Al Qaeda’s goals of killing Americans, guilty or innocent, combatants and non-combatants, adults and babies, without regard to the carnage that’s caused,” Judge Lewis Kaplan told the hate monger.

He said he was sentencing him to life so “you never again lend aid” to Al Qaeda’s “murderous agenda.”

Abu Ghaith, the highest-ranking Al Qaeda figure to face trial on U.S. soil since the attacks, was convicted of conspiring to murder Americans in March.

While the 48-year-old imam wasn’t directly involved in plotting the attacks, the feds said he “played a critical role” for al-Qaeda in the months before and after the terror strikes by acting as its spokesman and recruiting fighters.

While Abu Ghaith’s lawyer, Stanley Cohen, tried to portray him as a “deer in headlights” who’d been “caught in the crosswind of history,” Abu Ghaith, dressed in prison blues with a white skull cap, was defiant to the end.

“My tongue … will not come here today and seek mercy or ask for mercy from anyone except God,” he said through an Arabic translator.

“Today, at the same moment you are shackling my hands and intend to bury me alive, you’re at the same time unleashing the hands of hundreds of Muslim youths, and you are removing the dust from their minds, and they will join the rally of the free men,” he said.

“Soon, and very soon, the whole world will see, the whole world will see the end of these theater plays known as trials.”

Before handing down his sentence, the judge noted that Abu Ghaith had never shown a sliver of regret for his actions.

“From the summer of 2001, until you sat down a few moments ago at the conclusion of your remarks, you have evidenced no remorse whatsoever. You’ve used your talents to recruit and inspire fighters to kill Americans, women, children, entirely innocent people. You have not evidenced any doubt about the justification for what was done,” the judge said. “You continue to threaten.”

 He pointed out that Abu Ghaith moved his family out of Afghanistan in the days before Sept. 11 because he knew something “big” was coming — and that he voluntarily went back on his own.

He took special note of one piece of evidence — a video showing Bin Laden, Abu Ghaith and others sitting around, chatting about the collapse of the Twin Towers.

It showed the men “recounting the Sept. 11 attacks proudly, with laughter and amusement. You sat at bin Laden’s right hand,” the judge said.

“Bin Laden bragged that he was the only one who fully anticipated what would happen in the World Trade Center attack,” that the passenger jets he had slam into the Twin Towers would make them collapse.

He was right,” Kaplan said. “Nearly 3000 people died.”

“Bin Laden laughed as he explained that. Others in the room did” as well, while Abu Ghaith showed “amusement,” the judge said.

“It was funny. It was a success, the massacre,” Kaplan said. “You sir, are as far from a deer in the headlights.”

Afterwards, Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara blasted Abu Ghaith as a “mouthpiece for murder and menace.”

“No sentence can restore what was taken from the families of Al Qaeda’s victims. But today’s sentence ensures that Sulaiman Abu Ghaith will never be free to incite or support mass murder again,” Bharara said.

Abu Ghaith’s lawyer, who’d asked Kaplan to sentence his client to 15 years behind bars, has said he’s appealing.

3 Afghan Army, 2 Afghan DEA who fled U.S. training assignments caught

via 3 Afghan Army officers missing from U.S. base in custody at Canada-U.S. border – World – CBC News.

Three Afghanistan National Army officers who went missing during a training exercise at a Cape Cod military base were detained Monday at the U.S.-Canadian border, Massachusetts law enforcement officials said.

Massachusetts state police were notified that the three were being questioned by federal authorities at Rainbow Bridge, which connects Niagara Falls, N.Y., and Niagara Falls, Ont., said spokesman David Procopio, who did not have further details.

There was no immediate comment from the Pentagon.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials in Niagara Falls said they didn’t have the men in custody. Messages left for Canada Border Services Agency weren’t immediately returned.

CBS reports They were transferred to U.S. custody Monday night.

Military officials said the Afghan soldiers had been participating in a U.S. Central Command Regional Co-operation training exercise at Joint Base Cape Cod. They arrived at Camp Edwards on Sept. 11 and were last seen Saturday at the Cape Cod Mall in Hyannis during an off day.

 The soldiers were reported missing by base security personnel Saturday night. They were identified as Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Capt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada and Capt. Noorullah Aminyar.

 Gov. Deval Patrick, who had been briefed over the weekend on the situation, said earlier Monday that the military did not believe the three soldiers posed a danger to the public.

 They were vetted by the military. They were cleared by the military,” Patrick told reporters while he visited a preschool program in Quincy.

 “There is a lot of speculation within the military that they may be trying to defect,” he said.

 Army Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, said earlier that 14 Afghans taking part in the Cape Cod military exercise were “thoroughly vetted” prior to coming to the U.S., so officials do not believe they are a threat.

 The Regional Co-operation training exercises have been held annually since 2004 to promote co-operation and interoperability among forces, build functional capacity, practice peacekeeping operations and enhance readiness.

This year’s exercise, which involves more than 200 participants from six nations including the U.S., is scheduled to wrap up Wednesday. Military officials from Tajikistan, Pakistan, Kazakhstan and Mongolia are also participants.

The two DEA trainees are reportedly being sent home, via Afghan nationals who disappeared in D.C. while training with DEA found, being sent home | WJLA.com.

WASHINGTON (WJLA) — Two Afghan policemen who were in the D.C. area for drug trafficking training and vanished last weekend in Georgetown have now been found, the Drug Enforcement Administration told ABC7 News on Friday.

The two men – Mohammad Yasin Ataye, 22, and Mohd Naweed Samimi, 24 – were found safe somewhere outside of D.C., but officials would not say exactly where.

The pair were part of a group of 31 Afghan police officers who were in the U.S. for a multi-week DEA training program at Quantico, Va. They disappeared while the group was on a DEA-supervised sightseeing trip to Georgetown.

The DEA said the two men separated from the group and left because they did not want to go back to Afghanistan.

The other Afghan officers graduated the DEA program and were due to return home Friday night. These two men were being sent home along with the rest of the group, the DEA said.
