This NYPD Muslim Chaplain might say all the right things here, but what is his real agenda? Look at his letter to NY University under the video re: the Danish cartoons of Muhammad. Cut any Muslim deep enough….
Khalil Gibran School Advisor threatened NYU with Jihad over Danish cartoons
By Beila Rabinowitz and William Mayer
May 17, 2007 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – During the height of the Danish cartoon controversy imam Khalid Latif – an advisory board member of New York’s proposed Khalil Gibran school [and chaplain at NYU, NYPD and Rutgers university] – protested a NYU student group’s intent to display the drawings by drafting an incendiary letter to university’s president John Sexton which contained veiled threats of violence.http://www.danielpipes.org/blog/731
“Dear President Sexton,
I am writing to you in regards to an event that is scheduled to take place next Wednesday at New York University. This event is being sponsored by the Objectivist Club, an OSA club, and its purpose is to analyze the issue of free speech with an emphasis put on a series of cartoons recently published in a Danish newspaper that depicted the Prophet Muhammad , peace be upon him, and Islam in a highly offensive manner. These cartoons have lead to riots, protests, beatings, and even deaths on an international level and now the idea is being discussed whether or not they should be displayed at NYU at the aforementioned event…As such, I am asking you to not allow these cartoons to be displayed in any shape or form. The event itself and the topic that the students would like to discuss is not problematic in any way, but the pictures themselves are just hatred and there is really no justification in preaching something that breeds that kind of hate. One of the images shows what the author claims to be a rendering of the Prophet Muhammad wearing a turban that is shaped like a bomb, making it seem as if Islam is a religion that can be equated to terrorism. If ideas like that are not enough to keep these images from being displayed, the potential of what might happen after they are shown is something else that should be considered and not taken lightly.
As Chaplain for the Muslim community at NYU, my primary concern would be for those undergrads, grad students, faculty, staff, and admins who are Muslim and what kind of state displaying these cartoons would leave them in...(raging lunatic state comes to mind)
Aside from that, the repercussions that would take place outside of the university setting are potentially huge. All over the world Muslims have been coming together over this issue (and burning cities and murdering people) and in New York they would not hesitate in doing the same thing. New York itself is also one of the most metropolitan cities in the world and media attention that would be acquired would not limit itself to the city, but could go across the nation and even around the world as it already has with issues pertaining to these cartoons. NYU has facilities all over the world and Muslims also live all over the world. At that point in time no one will be thinking about the objectivist club that is an OSA organization made up of ten or twenty students. Rather, at that time all people will be thinking about is New York University and the decision it made. That decision however has not been made yet and I pray that, God-willing, when it is made, it will be the best one.
The circulating list also contained an endorsement of Latif’s actions by Yvonne Ridley a Muslim convert who is active in left-wing UK politics and has distinguished herself as a vile anti-Semite as well as being a supporter of suicide bombing.
“I did tell the students that I would try and rally support overseas – so let’s show the NYU administration that if they mess with our brothers and sisters in New York they mess with all of us. The following is a letter that has already been sent to President Sexton earlier by the imam of the Islamic centre.
Your sister in Islam
(Isn’t this Yvonne person the one whom Obama enlisted to make a speech at one of his victory rallies?)
