NYPD report on homegrown terrorists released
From the AP report:
NEW YORK — People in the U.S. who quietly band together and adopt radical ways — not just established overseas terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda — pose a serious threat to America's security, a new police analysis has concluded.
The New York Police Department report released Wednesday describes a process in which young men — often legal immigrants from the Middle East who are frustrated with their lives in their adopted country — adopt a philosophy that puts them on the path to violence and attacking civilians that Muslim extremists say is acceptable under jihad, or holy war.
At a briefing, NYPD officials argued that local law enforcement is best-suited to deal with the homegrown terror threat.
"Hopefully, the better we're informed about this process, the more likely we'll be to detect and disrupt it," Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said during the meeting with private security executives at police headquarters.
Meanwhile, NYC still still plans to open the taxpayer-funded Khalil Gibran madrassa, and Mayor Bloomberg wants the city to adopt more "Middle Eastern" and other young men, whether here legally or illegally—and his "don't ask, don't tell, don't deport" policy regarding crimes committed by these folk indicates he thinks it's just peachy to let them stay here no matter how long a rap sheet they amass. Do mayor and police commissioner share the same planet?
There will come a time—there better come a time—when such willful blindness in public officials is recognized as dereliction of duty in war time.
(This politically correct lingo—"Middle Eastern" when we know it means Muslim—will make New York's non-Muslim Middle Easterners as happy as non-Muslim "Asians" in the UK are made to feel by being lumped with the bad guys.)
