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

|Jihad Watch : It’s true. The NYPD dismantled the Demographics Unit in 2014, after
Linda Sarsour led a campaign complaining that it was “Islamophobic.” And
now we see where that leads.
Get the full story of the consequences of this demonization of counterterror efforts in my new book Confessions of an Islamophobe. Preorder here now.
“NYPD Monitored Terrorist’s Mosque, But Sarsour Convinced Them To Stop,” by Ken Webster, Jr., KRPC, November 1, 2017: Are you [old] enough to remember things that happened
prior to 15 minutes ago? Oh, you are? Well, then you’re probably not a
Democrat. 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. It’s also the same
geographic location as the biggest Islamic terror attack in United
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 & liberal
activist named Linda Sarour [sic]. 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]. And she really dislikes Israel [the only
Jewish state on Earth]. Back in 2014 Sarsour said, “The Demographics Unit created
psychological warfare in our community.” She didn’t offer any evidence
to support that claim, but it sounded great when she said it so the New
York Times enthusiastically published the quote. That’s when Sarsour met
with high ranking members of the NYPD to advocate for the end of the
Demographics Unit [which had renamed the Zone Assessment Unit in more
recent years]. The department’s intelligence chief, John Miller, agreed with Sarsour that the division had to go. No more Demographics Unit.
Fast-forward to October 31, 2017. That’s when New York City terror
suspect Sayfullo Saipov allegedly rented a truck from Home Depot and
used it to kill 8 people and injure 11 as he mowed down pedestrians. He
became an internationally known Islamic extremist. But his story didn’t
start there. Saipov happens to be a foreign-born Muslim from Uzbekistan. He first
arrived in the US in 2010 in Ohio during the Obama-era. He got a green a
card, he moved to New Jersey [after briefly spending time in Florida]
and he worked as an Uber driver to support himself.
He also frequented a mosque in New Jersey. Lets talk about that mosque for just a moment, shall we? 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.” And it turns out those investigators were right. In fact,
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.
Detectives believed someone at this mosque was capable of infiltrating a
terror attack [and they were right].
There are some people who will hear this news and think, “it’s wrong
to investigate innocent people.” I strongly disagree. Investigating
people is called “detective work” and it’s what you’re supposed to do
when you’re [get ready for this]… a detective. I realize it’s not
politically correct [whatever that means] to profile people for criminal
investigations, but unfortunately for members of the offense-industry,
profiling actually works. It’s how detectives do their jobs. Like it or
not, profiling is an essential part of investigating violent crimes.
Serial killers tend to be single middle-class white men from the
suburbs, cartel members tend to be Latino and ISIS inspired terrorists
are typically [drum roll please] Muslims.
But 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
