Islamic Jihad 101- A Patriot’s Introduction Pt. 6
[This is the 6th of 7 Jihad articles; start with the 1st one here]
Earlier this year, The New York City Police Department (“NYPD”) came under fire for its proactive attempt to identify potential Muslim Jihadists BEFORE they hurt anyone. Where to find potential Islamic Jihadists? Where the Muslims are!! Thus, the NYPD was legally monitoring mosques, college student associations and Muslim communities in general. The mainstream media is quick to paint this legitimate investigation technique as the suppression of individual liberties, invoking the imagery of Orwell’s “Big Brother”. How does an American law enforcement agency fight Jihad without LOOKING for it? So the NYPD visited websites, blogs and other online forums as part of the investigation. If college students have a meeting of any kind, and invite folks they do not know to attend, there is no REASONABLE expectation of privacy at that meeting! Numerous colleges made downright non-sensical statements that they are concerned that the NYPD investigation infringes students’ freedom of speech. Freedom of Speech does not protect criminal Jihadist conspiracy. The NYPD viewing the internet or sending undercover officers to meetings open to the public does not infringe on anyone’s freedom of speech or freedom of association. The press in divulging NYPD counter-terrorism methodology has only assisted Jihadists. Jihadists now have a bit more knowledge about how to fly under the radar of legitimate law enforcement techniques. All this whining and crying about infringement of civil liberties is a diversionary tactic, Islamic Deception. The idea that Muslim extremists bent on killing Americans should not be sought out until AFTER they commit a crime is ludicrous. Little more then ten years after September 11, 2001 are we to ignore the FACT that the attacks were carried out by Muslim extremists in the name of Islam?
