Judge Rules (Duh!) That NYPD Can Spy On Mosques
Investor's Business Daily
In a major victory for homeland security and a major blow to Islamist apologists, a judge has ruled the NYPD's surveillance of mosques was a lawful effort to prevent terrorism, not a civil rights violation.
Several radical Islamist front groups — including the Muslim Brotherhood-tied Muslim Students Association — accused the NYPD of violating their civil rights through a post-9/11 program that included infiltrating and monitoring mosques to gather intelligence on jihadists and disrupt terror plots.
In 2011 they sued the police department to kill the program and collect damages.
