Lost in the hysteria is the question of whether there is anything inaccurate or false in the film — no one who is protesting against this film is going beyond the claim that it is “Islamophobic.” In a sane world, Kelly and Bloomberg would not be apologizing at all. They’d be saying, “Yes, we showed the film, and we’re going to keep showing it, and what of it? If the Muslims in New York are upset about it being inaccurate, let them demonstrate its inaccuracy by taking positive steps to fight in their own community against the stealth jihad activity that the film documents.”
Also, in a sane world, the Mayor and the NYPD would not be expected to reach out to the Muslim community and prove their good will. The Muslim community would be reaching out to the Mayor and the NYPD, eager to prove its good will. And the Mayor and the NYPD would be telling Hamas-linked CAIR that its counterterror cooperation was not enough, instead of letting this execrable Islamic supremacist Hamas front dictate New York City’s counterterror operations.
But instead, we get more inverted reality coverage: “Really? Bloomberg Says Anti-Islam Film Flap Hurts NYPD’s ‘Credibility’ With Muslims,” from Gothamist, January 27:
Top cop Ray Kelly and his spokesman Paul Browne have been on the defensive all week after they were caught lying, or misremembering, the details of Kelly’s involvement in an Islamophobic propaganda film that was screened on a continuous loop for over 1,300 officers. Asked again about the controversy yesterday, Mayor Blooomberg told reporters, “Anything like this doesn’t help credibility. Ray”s got to work at establishing, or re-establishing, or reinforcing the credibility that he does have [with the Muslim community]. In other news, the NYPD has credibility with the Muslim community?
Not so much, says Cyrus McGoldrick of [Hamas-linked] CAIR-NY, a group that advocates for Muslim civil rights and has called for Kelly’s ouster. “This controversy has moved beyond an issue of poor judgment in the use of an Islamophobic training film to an issue of the integrity of public officials,” McGoldrick said in a statement. CAIR-NY and several other groups also called for Browne’s resignation, and even Bloomberg criticized his storytelling abilities. “I keep saying to everybody, “˜Get the whole story out right away,” and that’s to keep it from going on and on and on, and to give the public the information they need,” said Bloomberg. “That wasn’t done as well as we could have done it, and next time we”ll do it a little bit better.”…
Sir, yes, sir! We will not offend Muslims by training the NYPD to fight jihad, sir!
Hamas-linked CAIR smells blood, and is going in for the kill. They’ve eliminated any truth about Islam and jihad from national FBI training, and are now trying to eliminate it everywhere. The outcome will be a cadre of agents and police officers who are full of politically correct nonsense that will render them clueless and complacent in the face of jihad activity. And so the jihad in the U.S. will advance unimpeded.
