The New York chapter of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) presented a “‘Know Your Rights’ workshop” featuring Islamic supremacist lawyer Lamis Deek last Thursday in Brooklyn. Along with Hamas-linked CAIR, Brooklyn’s Community Board 5 and Officer Marcus Johnson of the 75th Precinct were involved in the event — and a SIOA operative was there. Our operative reports that Deek told the assembled Muslims not to offer the full, open and honest cooperation with police that Islamic supremacist groups in the U.S. always claim to give, but instead to repeat “Am I free to leave?” as the answer to every question and request.
[…] Deek didn’t waste anytime in disrespecting Officer Johnson, who was just a few seats away from her. She went right into a tirade against the police and the FBI, complaining that Muslims were being targeted and entrapped. She was clearly trying to make the authority figures who risk their lives to prevent Islamic terrorism into the bad guys. She kept pointing out to the audience how scary it was to have the police knock at your door, as if it were a 9-point earthquake taking place! Office Johnson just said quietly, while listening intently. Deek’s tone got so bad that it prompted a Community Board 5 representative, Manuel Burgos, to raise his hand in the middle of her speech. She tried to put him off until the Q & A, but he would not have it! He explained to her who he was and strongly said he “didn’t like the tone” that was taking place. Burgos said that the Community Board and the local precinct work hand in hand together. Deek was silenced; she looked at her cronies next to her, who didn’t know what to say either! In the end Burgos”s statement backfired, however, because Deek quickly softened her message by continually saying “with all due respect” to Officer Johnson when she spoke about the police. Meanwhile, during the speech, the Hamas-tied CAIR “police” went around taking pictures of the audience. A CAIR member went from corner to corner of the room taking pictures of the audience. I know he was a CAIR member because he had a badge on. Maybe they hoped we wouldn’t notice.
The three main points the Deek-led conference made in regards to the police were the following:
1. If the police stop you, say nothing except “am I free to leave”?
2. If the police ask for your ID, say nothing except for “am I free to leave”?
3. Muslims are the victims. (How they love to play the victim card.)
