Muslims Seek To Reverse Ruling That Allowed NYPD Spying



Muslim residents of New Jersey will be in court to try to reverse a ruling that gave New York City police the right to monitor their activities.

The plaintiffs Tuesday include a U.S. soldier, a school principal and several Rutgers University students. They believe the ruling from U.S. District Judge William Martini of Newark violates their civil rights.

The case involves the New York Police Department’s decision to spy on Muslim groups at mosques, restaurants and schools since 2002. The practice has come to light through a series of Associated Press articles.

Martini said that police could not keep an eye on Muslim terrorist activities “without monitoring the Muslim community itself.”

Two civil rights groups are appealing his ruling to the Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia.



  1. The Muslim community should be encouraging the spying to show they have nothing to hide, and that they are loyal Americans. Trying to operate in shadows is a good way to convince most Americans that they are subversive and supporters of the international Islamic terror movements. People who have nothing to hide don’t object to having the cops looking in on what they are doing.

  2. Moose Jews don’t go killing people because of a cartoon or because they are xrisitans or Muslim but Muslim do. According to you search and take off the shoes of a 85 year old grandmother but let a 25 Muslim not be checked
