Every city across the country should be doing the same.

NY Daily News

As the global war on terror approaches the start of its eighth year, the NYPD says it has never been more prepared – but also warns that the city can never let its guard down. In a two-part series, Daily News reporter Patrice O’Shaughnessy looks at the terror threat in New York – and around the world. Sunday’s installment focuses on an NYPD undercover officer who dug deep into the potential terrorists in our midst.

A young undercover city detective spent four years in the shadowy world of terrorist wanna-bes – taking part in jihadist discussions and training in parks in the dead of night – to get a handle on the homegrown threat.

At great personal risk, he participated in everything from prayers at a mosque to martial arts training under cover of darkness to watching jihadist videos, with many of the activities laced with talk of killing, according to a source familiar with the undercover’s investigations.

His experiences paint a vivid portrait of the potential for local terror. While the picture is in no way indicative of the city’s Muslim population as a whole, it provides insight into its most radical element.

The detective spent his time interacting with informal groups of youths and men who shared extremist views – and his experiences illustrate what police say is the potential for radicalization of some elements in the community.

He reported that after prayers at a neighborhood mosque, there were often private classes that included discussions about bombing different areas.

The men discussed violent jihad in bookstores, private houses and on buses en route to paintball and shooting-range events.

He was invited to join in “bonding” activities like working out at a gym and martial arts training in parks at night, during which the group discussed ideological justifications for killing Westerners.

He also watched military movies and jihadist videos with groups of young men in private homes. During one such evening, one man got so excited he punched a wall.

    They are obviosuly here to overthrow our country, to create death and mayhem. What other purpose do they have here? Do they want to be integrated into a democratic system? I think not. We need to be more like Australia, who makes immigrants pledge not to speak or work against their country. We also need to build POW camps for these folks, as they’re designation will change to enemy-aliens as soon as a conflict begins or, another terrorist attack occurs.
    My advice to these people is to get out while the going is good.

    Ben,

    We have the Oath of Citizenship here in the US that calls for immigrants being naturalized to do all that. The problem is muslims have a thing called taqiyya, which allows them to lie to infidels, when muslims are small in numbers and weak, to advance islam. Then when they have sufficient numbers, all hell breaks loose. Look at France, Denmark and The Netherlands, where you have riots and honor killings du jour. Not all of them are evil, most sincerely want to enjoy freedom, having never known it living in muslim lands. Freedom and Self Determination are the exact opposite of islam. That is why they hate us. That and the fact we do not recognize their pedophile Muhammad as anything other than a violent mysoginist thief.

    Yeah Ben, we should do them like we did the Japanese. Throw them in the detention camps and let the courts sort ‘em out. Heck, we should do a presumptive strike and detain them all tomorrow. What do you think?
