NYPD officer ‘converted’ to Islam to foil Muslim terror plot in Brooklyn

Imagine if the mosques were under surveillance with spies embedded in the Muslim community? via: NYPD officer ‘converted’ to Islam to go undercover on Brooklyn College students | Daily Mail Online h/t Atlas

An NYPD officer pretended to be a Brooklyn College student at the Islamic Society in New York City, and taking the Muslim oath of faith, before befriending Muslim students to infiltrate the community.

The woman, who went by the name of Mel, short for Melike, spent four years earning the trust of Islamic students at the college as part of an NYPD operation to spy on Muslims, according to NY’s daily weblog Gothamist.

The controversial mission was part of the police departments well-documented plan that sees the blanket surveillance of innocent Muslims.

The Mayor of New York, Bill deBlasio has openly criticized such surveillance and declared at a Ramadan dinner that Muslim New Yorkers were ‘still fighting for basic human rights.’


‘We recently shut down the Demographics Unit at NYPD, which conducted surveillance on Muslim New Yorkers. Because it’s unfair to single out people on the sole basis of their religion,’ he added.

The undercover operation led to some important arrests. Four years after Mel had infiltrated the college, two Queens residents, Noelle Velentzas and Asia Siddiqui, were arrested and charged with allegedly planning to build a bomb.

The US Justice Department issued a release stating that the women were linked to members of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and the Islamic State.

Brooklyn College students at the Islamic Society told Gothamist they feel skeptical and paranoid.

‘In the back of all our minds, there’s always that suspicion, that either, you are a spy, or you think I’m one,’ a female Muslim student stressed.

‘We’re acting like criminals, even though we haven’t done anything,’ she said.

Ground Zero mega mosque defeated but 3-story Islamic museum and mini-mosque still planned

They are celebrating over at Atlas Shrugs and around the blogosphere. See, It’s Official: Ground Zero Mosque DEFEATED! A good refresher on how American citizens – led by Pamela Geller – were integral in defeating the mega mosque including the fact that that then NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s Office Spearheaded the Drive for Ground Zero Mosque. Also a video well worth watching and sharing.

But according to Bloomberg, while the original plans for a mega mosque at Ground Zero have been squashed (by capitalism), a mini-mosque and Islamic museum are still planned. via Luxe Condos at ‘Ground Zero Mosque’ Site Aim High on Pricing

It’s been four years since Manhattan developer Sharif El-Gamal shelved plans for a 15-story Islamic cultural center, near Ground Zero, that drew international debate. He’s looking to attract a different kind of attention for his current project on the site.

El-Gamal’s Soho Properties has proposed a 667-foot (203-meter) condominium tower at lower Manhattan’s 45 Park Place.

Adjacent to the tower, Soho Properties will build a public plaza connected to a three-story Islamic museum and prayer space to be designed by architect Jean Nouvel, El-Gamal said.

That would be a Muslim prayer space, aka a mosque.

He estimates that by the time the condo tower opens, the offices at the World Trade Center buildings will be filled with tenants, and retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue will have opened lower Manhattan locations.

“The center of gravity is shifting toward downtown, and we are literally in the heart of this new downtown,” El-Gamal said. “Once all the scaffolding is down, and once all the office space is leased, this will be the most significant residential neighborhood in New York City.”

El Gamal states, indirectly, that the Islamic museum and mosque will be at the heart of the new downtown – after Islam destroyed the old downtown.

It’s unclear why developers and others continue to do business with El Gamal considering his legal and financial troubles.


New York: Queens Muslim arrested in ISIS support case

“I’m ready to die for the Caliphate, prison is nothing,” he wrote on Twitter.

If the government has its way, he’ll eventually find out just what prison is like.

Queens resident Ali Saleh, 22, was arrested Thursday at his residence and charged with attempting to provide material support to a terrorist organization, the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIS and ISIL.

Saleh was determined to travel to the Middle East and join the Islamic State, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York, which is prosecuting the case.

A few days after his post about the Caliphate and prison, Saleh allegedly had a seat reserved on a flight from Kennedy Airport to Istanbul, the government’s announcement of his arrest says. He “was unable to travel at that time,” the document says, without elaboration. Then in July 2015, he allegedly reserved a seat on a flight from JFK to Cairo, and contacted a member of ISIS over Twitter. Airline personnel kept him from boarding the plane.

Over the next two days, Saleh allegedly visited Newark and Philadelphia International airports, but again was denied boarding, the government said. He then allegedly tried to take a train from Cleveland to Toronto so he could go to the Middle East from there. The arrest announcement did not say why he was unable to do that.

He allegedly told investigators that if he had not been arrested, he would have continued trying to get to the Mideast.

“Saleh was relentless in his attempts to travel to the Middle East to join a terrorist organization,” Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District Kelly Currie said in the arrest announcement. “We will continue to track down and prosecute individuals like Saleh before they are able to harm the United States and its allies.”

The government did not say what part of Queens Saleh was living in and an FBI spokesman said the documents he has access to did not say. A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office said he formerly lived in Jamaica but most recently was elsewhere in Queens, though she could not say exactly where.

The Islamic State has taken over large swaths of Iraq and Syria, in a campaign marked by extreme barbarity — beheadings recorded on video and posted to social media, the burning alive and drowning of prisoners confined to cages and other mass executions — as well as the destruction of antiquities such as ancient Roman temples. It also calls for terror attacks against the United States, and its sympathizers have beheaded a woman in Oklahoma, murdered four U.S. Marines and one Navy sailor in Tennessee and attempted to shoot up a gathering of critics of Islam in Texas.

Saleh is the latest in a string of terror suspects from Queens who have been arrested in recent years either for allegedly wanting to support jihadists in the Middle East or for plotting or attempting to carry out attacks in New York City.

“By his own words, Ali Saleh was willing to pledge allegiance to, and die for ISIL, an organization that has called for terrorist attacks against the United States,” Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said in the government’s press release. “Saleh’s attempts to travel to Syria and ISIL’s battlefields were halted by good intelligence and smart law enforcement. I commend the agents and detectives of the Joint Terrorism Task Force as well as the dedicated prosecutors at the office of the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York.”

Saleh’s Twitter posts are no longer visible, but tweets sent to him are. Many appear to have been parts of conversations he had with people about the Islamic State and the Muslim religion.

“Europe left the Dark Ages behind for good,” one poster told him. “Islam still lives in its own dark ages. And savageries don’t help.”

Another posted a photo of men apparently executed by the Islamic State and hung by their hands from T-shaped posts, asking, “Are these the conversions moron”?

And another poster said, “You will die alone with only your hatred and no virgins,” a reference to the jihadist belief that those who are killed fighting for Islam will enjoy the favors of dozens of young women in the afterlife.

Days after 9/11, Madison Ave shut down for Muslim Day Parade prayer (video)

via Urban Infidel: Muslim Day Parade 2015

There are never any people lined up along the streets cheering them on. It generates no crowds and the emptiness effect is only amplified by the sleepy Sunday midtown. It draws no people at all, especially compared to all of the other NYC parades in Manhattan.

A group of Christian proselytizers were not greeted warmly at the parade.  So much for brotherly love and all that ‘people of the book’ taqiyya.

New Jersey: 9/11 survivor from ‘Dust Lady’ photo dies of stomach cancer


Source: 9/11 ‘Dust Lady’ Marcy Borders dies after battle with stomach cancer | NJ.com

BAYONNE — After a yearlong battle with stomach cancer, Marcy Borders — the woman known as the “Dust Lady” from the iconic photo taken of her as she escaped from the Twin Towers on Sept. 11 — has died, according to Facebook posts by multiple family members.

Michael Borders, Marcy Borders’ brother, said in a Facebook post at 11:22 a.m. yesterday that he needed everyone to pray for her, before posting about 12 hours later: “I can’t believe my sister is gone.”

John Bordes, Marcy Borders’ first cousin, called her “my HERO” in a Facebook comment and said that she “unfortunately succumbed to the diseases that (have) ridden her body since 9/11.”

“In addition to losing so many friends, coworkers, and colleagues on and after that tragic day, the pains from yesteryear (have) found a way to resurface,” he said.

The famous photo shows Marcy Borders, a Bank of America employee at the time, distraught and covered in dust in the aftermath of the attacks in Lower Manhattan.

The Bayonne native fell into a decade-long depression that led her to abuse alcohol and drugs after her traumatic experience on 9/11. In 2011, Borders checked into rehab, and has stayed clean since, she told The Jersey Journal last year.

Borders, a mother of two, was just getting back into the working world — helping with a candidate’s local campaign for mayor — when her doctor told her in August 2014 that she had stomach cancer.

Borders, 41 at the time, told The Jersey Journal in November that she had undergone chemotherapy and that she was scheduled to undergo surgery in December and then radiation and chemotherapy afterward.

At the time, she wondered aloud if her cancer was related to 9/11.

“I’m saying to myself ‘Did this thing ignite cancer cells in me?'” she said. “I definitely believe it because I haven’t had any illnesses. I don’t have high blood pressure…high cholesterol, diabetes.”

Borders told The Jersey Journal at the time that she was struggling to pay off $190,000 in medical bills, as she didn’t have a job or health insurance.

When asked if she ever looked at the “Dust Lady” photo of herself, Borders said she avoided doing so as much as possible.

“I try to take myself from being a victim to being a survivor now. I don’t want to be a victim anymore,” she said.


Marcy wasn’t alone. We’re all prisoners of 9/11, whether we know it or admit it, or not.

RIP Marcy!

NYPD Commissioner Worshipping Allah in Queens Mosque

…current New York City Police Commissioner, William Bratton with all members of the NYPD at the Jamaica Muslim Center are seen worshipping Allah:

The video was proudly tweeted  by the NYPD News.

On its Facebook the Jamaican Muslim Center announced the visit.

It seems that Bratton and Mayor Bill de Blasio are two butt-cheeks in one underwear. Like Mayor Blasio, the spiritual harlotry is part of Bratton’s efforts to add more Muslims to the NYPD Police Force, so he sees it fit to pray to Allah with Muslims. In June, Reuters reported:

Even with minorities nearly outnumbering whites among New York City police officers, the department is struggling to hire enough blacks and Muslims to reflect changing city demographics, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said in an interview on Monday.

Adding “Muslims” to the NYPD police force is “to reflect changing city demographics”. In other words, Islam is part of America. Bratton believes that Islam is a great religion and was hijacked by a few crazies. In May he stated:

“This crazy hijacking of the Muslim religion by these fanatics, twisting it into an ideology that’s all about hate and murder and killing.”

Sharia law has no place in a civilized society! Moslems don’t respect women, they’re property!

As we’ve noted before, the NYPD was infiltrated and shaken down by terror-linked CAIR.

Fed Court: NYC MTA Anti-Jihad Ad Ban Violated 1st Amendment Rights, Must Pay

Two-time losers. via American Freedom Law Center.

On Thursday of last week (7/16), the federal court hearing the case against the New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) for illegally refusing to display an anti-jihad advertisement granted the plaintiffs, Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, and their non-profit organization, American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), partial summary judgment and ordered the MTA to pay nominal damages. The court’s finding of liability and award of damages also opens the door for Geller and her co-plaintiffs to recover their legal fees and costs from the City’s transit authority. The controversial anti-jihad ad, referred to in the case as the “Hamas Killing Jews” advertisement, is displayed below.

Judge John G. Koeltl, presiding in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York in downtown Manhattan, had earlier ruled on April 20 that the MTA’s refusal to run the ad out of fear that Muslims in New York might understand the ad to be advocating violence and would therefore rise up to murder Jews as Islamic worship, was unconstitutional.  In fact, Judge Koetl ruled that there was no evidence of any threat of violence.  Based on these findings, Judge Koeltl ordered the MTA to display the ad immediately, even before the court’s final judgment.

The court did, however, stay (i.e., postponed) the enforcement of its order for 30 days to give the MTA time to appeal or to work out the logistics of running the ad.  The MTA did neither.  Instead, it convened a public board meeting at which MTA board member Charles Moerdler ranted incoherently about hate speech and Geller’s newly proposed ads designed to expose wealthy Jews who support the BDS (boycott, divestiture, and sanction) movement against Israel.

At the conclusion of the meeting, the board voted to change the MTA ad policy by excluding all speech that, according to MTA officials, addressed “disputed” causes and issues.  On the heels of that decision, the MTA filed a motion to “dissolve” the court’s previous order requiring it to run the Hamas Killing Jews ad on the grounds that the MTA was no longer applying the “incitement” provision, but rather a “no political message” provision.  Judge Koeltl accepted the MTA’s argument and rescinded his earlier order requiring the MTA to run the ad.

The American Freedom Law Center (AFLC), lawyers for Geller and her co-plaintiffs, immediately appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Judge Koeltl’s decision to dissolve the earlier order requiring the MTA to run the Hamas Killing Jews ad.  Just last Friday, the Second Circuit granted AFLC’s motion to expedite the appeal.

Not waiting for the appeal on the injunction issue to wind its way through the appellate process, AFLC also immediately asked the district court to grant its clients judgment against the MTA for its initial decision to refuse to display the ad on the grounds of incitement—i.e., that it would spur violence, a claim the court flatly rejected.  Initially, the MTA opposed AFLC’s request, claiming that it was premature.  However, at the hearing on the matter, the MTA capitulated and agreed to a court finding that the MTA was liable for violating Geller’s, Spencer’s, and AFDI’s First Amendment right to free speech and further agreed to pay nominal damages.

An award for even nominal damages allows AFLC to seek reimbursement of its legal fees as the “prevailing party,” which will likely be in excess of $100,000.

David Yerushalmi, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, explained,

“The MTA has long been a serial violator of the First Amendment—at least when it involves pro-Israel, anti-jihad speech.  The MTA will pay for this conduct just as it has in the past.  Moreover, we fully intend to win the appeal and force the MTA to actually run the Hamas Killing Jews ad.  The MTA and its board should not be permitted to play musical chairs with its ad policy just because they don’t like Ms. Geller’s viewpoint.”

Robert Muise, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, added,

“It is remarkable the lengths that government officials will go to try and silence Ms. Geller’s anti-jihad message.  But I can assure you that we are more determined to defend the First Amendment against such politically-correct censorship.”

AFLC has now won two federal lawsuits against the MTA, one against the Washington, D.C. transit authority, and one against the Philadelphia transit authority on behalf of its clients, Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, and AFDI.  Cases are still pending in Detroit, Boston, and Seattle, with a new case recently filed in Washington D.C.
