NYPD monitored jihad murderer Saipov’s mosque until Linda Sarsour convinced them to stop

NYPD monitored jihad murderer Saipov’s mosque until Linda Sarsour convinced them to stop, by Ken Webster.

Back in 2014 the New York Police Department dropped a program that monitored potential suspects of Islamic extremism.

Created in 2005, the program was pretty cut and dry: plain clothed detectives were sent out to mosques and gathering places for Muslims to see if anyone was pushing extremist rhetoric on the community. While it might seem a bit intrusive, this happened in a city of 8.5 million people with as many as 800,000 Muslim residents in the greater metro area, many of whom are foreign born nationals. …

Known as the Demographics Unit, the program seemed to make sense. After all, New York City has a history with Islamic extremism that resulted in thousands of people dying. But when liberal activists and special interest groups caught wind of it’s existence, it had to go.

In 2014 the New York Times reported that the Demographics Unit would no longer exist. They didn’t make this decision on their own. They were pressed into the move by a feminist Sharia Law advocate and liberal activist named Linda Sarsour. You might remember Linda from the Women’s March in DC earlier this year. She’s part of the Arab American Association of New York. She also called for a Jihad against President Trump (her words, not mine) …

Saipov … frequented a mosque in New Jersey…. The Omar Mosque in Paterson, N.J., located near the suspect’s home, is one of the many mosques in the New York metro area that was previously being studied by the NYPD. The location was believed by investigators to be a possible destination for, “budding terrorist conspiracies.” … The mosque was being monitored by the NYPD going back as far as at least 2006. They knew about this place and the possibility that it might be the hang out destination for a potentially lethal terror suspect. …

Because of people like Linda Sarsour, it’s now deemed racially insensitive (even though Islam isn’t a race) to profile people because they’re Muslims. I’m not saying Linda Sarsour is responsible for yesterday’s terror attack, but she certainly helped make it easier for Muslims terrorists in NYC to execute successful massacre-attempts on law abiding citizens.
