Remember the old TV commercials for Hebrew National hot dogs–“We answer to a higher authority”? [FYI, kosher Jews, like me, won’t eat Hebrew National, but that’s a story for another post.] Well, replace the word “higher” with “Muslim” and you have the new slogan for New York City.
NYPD Officer Phillip Cardillo Was Murdered By Muslims, Who Now Get to Decide Whether a Street Can Be Named After Him
For all the attacks the NYPD has endured for daring to investigate Islamic supporters of terrorism (and prevent terrorist attacks against New York citizens), it’s pretty clear that the Muslims are still wagging the city’s tail, and the NYPD has little power, even to remember slain cops. Now, the Islamic community has final say on the names of roads in the United States of America.
A New York police officer seeking to rename a Harlem street for a cop gunned down inside a Manhattan mosque 40 years ago was told by local leaders to seek the blessing of area Muslims.
NYPD Officer Philip Cardillo was shot dead in an infamous 1972 incident in which police responded to a fake “officer down” call from Muhammad Mosque No. 7, the New York headquarters for the Nation of Islam. The accused gunman was later acquitted, and the city’s perceived unwillingness to back the police has long been seen as a low point in relations between city government and the police department. After four decades, NYPD Inspector and local Precinct Commander Rodney Harrison wants a section of 123rd St. named after Cardillo.
“It’s been 40 years,” retired NYPD cop Randy Jurgensen, who was at the mosque when Cardillo was killed, told FoxNews.com. “It would be closure for the Cardillo family and the police officers there that day.”
In New York, the City Council typically approves street namings on the recommendation of local Community Boards. But members of Community Board 10, which represents the Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan, have effectively blocked Harrison’s plan by telling him to seek the approval of local Muslim leaders. . . .
CB 10 Chairwoman Henrietta Lyle . . . at the public meeting . . . said the board needs to hear from the mosques and that it is up to the NYPD to arrange a meeting with the imams, according to an observer at the meeting.
So, let me get this straight: Muslims shoot and kill a police officer in their mosque. Then, they get away with it. Then, to add insult to insult to insult to injury, they get to decide whether or not a street can be named after him? Only in America. This is beyond absurd. It’s like the cast of “Keeping Up with the Muslim Kardashians” is running this country. The ghost of Osama Bin Laden keeps getting the last laugh. His jihad keeps on givin’.
Like I’ve been saying for more than a decade, in America there is no separation between mosque and state, only synagogue/church and state.
This is grounds for a lawsuit. But, no worries, you won’t see the Justice Department breathing down the necks of Community Board 10, as both the Bush and Obama administrations did on behalf of Muslims for the last 11-plus years.
Muslim’s feelings are more important than everyone else’s rights.
Can you imagine if the Klan murdered a cop and the city insisted the NYPD get the approval of the Klan for a street name?!
Same difference here.
