Repeat After Me:

There is NO conspiracy

There is NO conspiracy

There is NO conspiracy

The head of Islamic chaplains in the New York City Department of Correction was given administrative leave yesterday after he was recorded saying things about the government and the media that some consider outlandish.
Imam Umar Abdul-Jalil, the executive director of ministerial services for the city Department of Correction [spoke] at a conference of Islamic leaders in Tucson, Ariz., and was secretly recorded by the counterterrorism organization The Investigative Project.

At one conference session, Abdul-Jalil charged that Muslims jailed after the 9/11 attacks were being tortured in Manhattan, according to the tape.

"They [some Muslim inmates] are not charged with anything, they are not entitled to any rights, they are interrogated. Some of them are literally tortured and we found this in the Metropolitan Correctional Facility in Manhattan. But they literally are torturing people," Abdul-Jalil said.

Abdul-Jalil also accused the Bush administration of being terrorists, according to the tape.

"We have terrorists defining who a terrorist is, but because they have the weight of legitimacy, they get away with it . . . We know that the greatest terrorists in the world occupy the White House, without a doubt," he said.

At another session, Abdul-Jalil urged American Muslims to stop allowing "the Zionists of the media to dictate what Islam is to us" and said Muslims must be "compassionate with each other" and "hard against the kufr [unbeliever]."

Who's outraged?
"His comments betray an effort to instill hatred of the United States as the enemy of Islam by making a series of false allegations portraying the U.S. as an evil country," said anti-terror expert Steve Emerson, director of The Investigative Project.

"This is a man who is supposed to be spreading words of reconciliation and moderation as head Islamic chaplain - not inciting followers to believe that the U.S. government and 'Zionists' are plotting a conspiracy of persecution against Muslims," Emerson added.
What do they hope to achieve by silencing people?Even if there's no conspiracy, silencing conspiracy theorists is sure to get more attention than letting them shoot off at the mouth.
Abdul-Jalil is the latest Muslim chaplain working for city and state agencies to come under fire.

Last year, the city Fire Department forced Imam Intikab Habib to resign as chaplain for publicly doubting that al Qaeda hijackers brought down the World Trade Center towers and suggesting there was a broader "conspiracy."

Three years ago, Pataki fired Imam Warith Deen Umar, the former chief Muslim chaplain for the state prison system, after it was reported he was expressing support for the 9/11 terrorists.
I guess the internment camps they've prepared for dissidents are gearing up for their first wave of residents.

Not wanting someone like that on government payroll?

Understandable.

It's not like the guy was JAILED. I mean, in other countries - like in Yemen - the death penalty may be imposed on someone merely for republishing the Danish cartoons. (and also denouncing them while republishing them!)

THAT is more along the lines of what you claim the firing of your Imam is.

Let me add one thing.

They should not have taped the imam. That should have been a private religious session. It does strike me as wrong that the session was taped.

I am just saying that the firing of the guy is not troublesome to me - the taping is. Did they have a warrant to tape the session? Were they in violation of the law? If they had no warrant to tape the session...then using the fruit of the poisonous tree argument...the imam shouldn't have been fired.

However, without looking at the issue from the eavesdropping angle, firing a government employee for having those views is really not that big a deal. (as I see it)

One more thing on one more thing!

Was the conference public? Did the government have access to it as anyone would? This changes the situation, if it was a public conference.

Did the imam preach such ideas on the job? (a job at a PRISON!) All these issues are a factor in evaluating the situation.

Well, we can look at it fm rationalistic pt of view: Christian objectivity vs Judaic-Talmudic subjectivism whence the problem is Jew lies pushed by Jews-media w. assistance of the relatively few "Judeo-Christians" of Falwell, Robertson, Limbaugh, O'Reilly, et al.

If Muslims are smart, they'll stick with OBJECTIVITY and never stop pointing out the incessant Jew lies and program of lying--as lying is their religion.

Next, Muslims could encourage Christians for the necessary Christian antisemitism, citing the quotes fm the literature.

Hang in there Muslims; u're in an impossible situation (USA is a Christian land), but by maintaining reason AND ESPECIALLY OBJECTIVITY, we can score against the Judaic monster--and also those traitorous "Judeo-Christians," don't forget. Thor
