NYPD's Counterterrorism Ops Under Attack
The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity, said that "Muslim terrorism is not a threat after 9/11" in the May/June issue of its magazine, Islamic Horizons. The Boston bombings, committed by Muslim terrorists, happened on April 15. Instead, ISNA characterizes anti-Muslim discrimination as the real threat.
The magazine includes an article titled "New York Police Need Strict Oversight" that slams the NYPD's counter-terrorism intelligence-gathering operations as an infringement upon Muslims' rights. The ISNA article makes the absurd statement:
"Despite being proved by reports such as the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security that Muslim terrorism is not a threat after 9/11, [the] NYPD continues to insist that if Muslims have nothing to hide, they should overlook the violation of their rights."
