New York: More on the NYPD-looking Islamic Patrols in Brooklyn

Source: Brooklyn’s Islamist Vigilantes :: by Benjamin Baird

…residents of Brooklyn’s Bay Ridge and Sunset Park neighborhoods may have to get used to such scenes after the New York Post reported a “new security group” cruising local streets in a white Ford Taurus painted with stripes and insignia nearly identical to local police. But the recently incorporated Muslim Community Patrol & Services (MCPS) isn’t a new concept, nor is it some benign neighborhood watch merely established, as it claims, “to protect members of the local community from escalating quality-of-life nuisance crimes.”

“This is basically a neighborhood community patrol on steroids, and people are intimidated,” MCPS’s own Vice President Noor Rabah boasted in an interview with Bklyner.

Formerly known as the Muslim Civilian Observation Patrol & Services (MCOPS, or Muslim COPS), MCPS has been patrolling Brooklyn’s streets since September 2016 and leaving behind traces of the Islamist agenda which guides its growing membership.

The security group sparked outrage on social media over fears that its members might behave like Muslim patrols in Minnesota and London by imposing religious standards and enforcing “no-go zones.” But the controversial fact-checking website Snopes deemed allegations that MCPS was enacting Sharia law as “false,” and a New York Times report concluded that much of the backlash was driven by “far-right conspiracy theories.”

The Times also noted that the Muslim patrol is “believed to be the first of its kind in the country.” However, MCPS isn’t even the first of its kind in Brooklyn. Led by the radical Imam Siraj Wahhaj, a small force of devout Muslims helped eradicate the crack epidemic plaguing Brooklyn in the 1980s. But the borough’s first experiment with an Islamic neighborhood watch ended in shame for Wahhaj and three others arrested in 1987 for illegally possessing firearms while on patrol.

Brooklyn has progressed since those perilous days, however, and residents now enjoy the lowest crime rate in decades. Although hate crimes are on the rise across the country and in NYC, NYPD statistics indicate that anti-Muslim attacks are declining and account for less than 5 percent of the city’s total hate crime offenses in 2018.

But that relative safety hasn’t kept MCPS members from attempting to emulate their predecessors. A now-deleted flier advertising an Oct. 12, 2016 MCOPS meeting notes that the group discussed “Applying for Handguns & Shotguns.”

The prospect of an armed sectarian patrol is even more concerning when MCPS’s close relationship with a controversial Islamic charity is explored. Khashif Hussain, an MCPS leader and NYPD Auxiliary Sergeant, co-founded Muslims Giving Back (MGB), an Islamist nonprofit infiltrated in 2012 by undercover NYPD informants in a multi-year terrorism probe.

NYPD court documents filed in the Brooklyn Federal Court allege that MGB co-founder Asad “Ace” Dandia organized a trip to Pakistan in 2011 to join an extremist group, sympathized with Al Qaeda, spoke highly of the late Al Qaeda commander Anwar al-Awlaki, and promoted violence against Shiite Muslims. Dandia planned the 2011 trip with “close associate” Justin Kaliebe, who was arrested in February 2013 after attempting to join Al Qaeda factions in Yemen.

MCPS Vice President Noor Rabah also provides charity burial services for MGB through Janazah Project. Both organizations operate out of the Muslim Community Center in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park.

As part of its charity work, MGB regularly practices Dawah, an Arabic word which usually means “issuing a summons” or “making an invitation” to Islam. While most Muslims simply think of Dawah as an opportunity to promote a pious lifestyle and spread the faith through good deeds, groups like MGB and MCPS depart from this traditional form of missionary work and use humanitarian action as a tool for radical Islamization in both Muslim and non-Muslim communities.

Rabah describes MCPS’s mission as “Dawah through action,” a slogan borrowed from MGB and the modus operandi of lawful Islamist groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood. MCPS derives its legitimacy from subverting social and political institutions and taking ownership of civic responsibilities where the city lacks the resources or social capital to respond adequately. By policing Muslim neighborhoods that distrust the NYPD, and feeding the homeless where the city is accused of neglect, MCPS leaders hope to win over adherents — both Muslims and non-Muslims — to their extreme version of Islam.

Once the community feels that they can reach you and they actually trust you and now they start to like you — now they might listen to some Dawah a little here and there. It’s very beneficial, Insha’Allah [God willing],” Rabah told recruits in a recently deleted video capturing an Oct. 2016 MCOPS meeting.

Looking to underwrite the cost of additional patrol vehicles and equipment, MCPS held its first annual banquet and fundraiser on February 26. Keynote speakers included Muslim chaplain and MGB co-founder Gareth Bryant. (In a January blog post, Bryant expressed support for R. Kelly, the singer who stands accused of sexual relations with at least a dozen 13 to 16-year-old girls. But Bryant insisted that the performer is not a child molester: “I say this, definitively, because none of the Women confirmed to have had Sexual-Encounters with R. Kelly were Non/Pre-Pubescent, thereby confirming that they weren’t Islāmically-Children.”)

Palestinian clothing designer Jay Mazini was also invited to speak at the MCPS gala. Mazini enjoys promoting a notorious anti-Semitic conspiracy theory, arguing on Twitter that “the reason for 9/11” was to give the Jewish Rothschilds family “a reason to enter Iraq” and “seize their central bank.” According to the social media star, “ISIS, Al-Qaeda & Taliban was formed after the government left their weapons In Afghanistan, Iraq & other countries & trained citizens to kill each other.”

Other evidence exists suggesting that MCPS promotes a hardline version of Islam. Besides acting as “a deterrent to neighborhood crime,” the organization also offers counseling for “family problems,” “marital discord,” and “domestic violence,” the same family law areas which frequently fall under the jurisdiction of Western Sharia courts.

Sharia courts? In Brooklyn? Read it all.

  1. There are places in NYC where police cars are used for target practice. One of these vehicles would be great for sighting my Lapua, or anyone’s 308, 30-06, 25-06, 50, etc. You get the general drift.

  2. Perhaps ALL New Yorkers need to be issued either ham sandwiches or Bar-B-Que…to counter these muslim vigilantes…WHO is paying for this clandestine / self centered MOB ???Salaries…vehicles / insurance, uniforms, health-care for these agents ?Are they monitoring emergency police / fire frequencies ?

  3. Parts of their approach are similar to what the Black Panthers did in the 1960’s. They also had a huge feeding program for the homeless / indigent which helped to popularize their ‘movement’. The way this normally works is that the muslims will make a great show of community service and outreach, doing their utmost to convey the lie that they are proud Americans wanting to build a better community for all. Once their numbers increase, they will become more and more belligerent, demanding this or that concession to chip away at the fabric of American society with the goal of ultimately replacing it with their own. Just as the Left loves to say “Socialism arrives by bicycle”…muslims could say that Shariah arrives by oxcart. Different types of oppression, similar implementation methods.

  4. “MCPS Vice President Noor Rabah”: Hmmmm, where did I hear that name NOOR before ? Lets connect some dots NOOR & police! Oh yes that was the Somali police officer in Minnesota that killed the blond lady in her robe after she called the police to report a crime. NOOR fired his service weapon right across his driver / partner who is now likely deaf for life and killed that lovely woman for no reason whatsoever but is he going to jail for murder. Not likely as he is a moslem. When a MCPS member murders a person who has insulted his prophet what will happen???

If sharia keeps spreading, you will not only be silenced by the media and big technology, you will be jailed - or worse. Speak while you can!
