Jihad: 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.
On Friday, a federal judge killed their lawsuit instead.
The decision is a shot in the arm for law enforcement looking for the best ways to protect the nation from another Islamic terror attack. If these pressure groups had succeeded in suing the NYPD, it would have handcuffed cops and given a green light to Islamic jihadists.
Yet the judge agreed with the common-sense logic we've argued all along: Police can't monitor the country for Muslim terrorist activities without monitoring the Muslim community itself including its places of worship, where too many terrorists are radicalized.
"The motive for the program was not solely to discriminate against Muslims, but rather to find Muslim terrorists hiding among ordinary law-abiding Muslims," said U.S. District Judge William Martini in his ruling.
After 9/11 the second Islamic terror attack on the World Trade Center in less than a decade the NYPD decided enough was enough. Both the 1993 and 2001 plots had connections to area mosques.

Spy on Totalitarian Base Camps setting up on infidel soil? I thought this was another vaunted, protected collective?
Yep, as did 0bummer and his Muslim friends but thankfully this judge didn’t get their message.
I love these kind of rulings.
Thanks for the post/comment, jazusamo.
HOORAY U.S. District Judge William Martini.
The universalism of Islam, in its all-embracing creed, is imposed on the be- lievers as a continuous process of warfare, psychological and political, if not strictly military. . . . The Jihad, accordingly, may be stated as a doctrine of a permanent state of war, not continuous fighting. Majid Khadduri
