Muslim Patrol Squad Causes Alarm for NY Residents

In Brooklyn, New York, an all-volunteer team of Muslim residents have formed a neighborhood patrol squad.

Launched in early 2019, these “Muslim Community Patrols”, or MCP, drive through Brooklyn neighborhoods in what look like official police cruisers with the stated goal of protecting mosques. Its fleet currently consists of two cars but is expected to have five patrol vehicles by the end of the month, with plans to eventually expand citywide. Noor Rabah, vice president of the Muslim Community Patrol, has described the group as “like a neighborhood watch but on steroids.”

The group currently has the support of Brooklyn’s borough president, Eric Adams, and of Brian J. Conroy, the commanding officer of patrol borough Brooklyn South. According to its leaders, the group is self-funded and purchased their uniforms and patrol cars with donations. Its members recently underwent training by police officers from the NYPD’s 72nd precinct, and say they plan to work alongside the police force to bridge the gap between law enforcement and locals.

The organization’s official website displays a quote from the Quran, and states that the patrol group aims to “not only serve as watchmen but, serviceman aiding the youth in our communities by enabling them with resources such as mentorship and career training. Mentors will work side by side, and keep them under their wing to ensure a growing success.”

But many residents have expressed alarm over the group’s presence, including some members of the local Muslim community, who have questioned the need for the patrol. Somia Elrowmeim, a member of the Arab American Association of New York, said of the group, “We don’t want you near our community.”

Other locals are wary of the group’s intentions, suspecting the patrol squad’s real goal is to enforce Sharia law or to target non-Muslim residents of the community. Self-appointed Muslim community patrols have already been formed in countries like Germany and England, with the express goal of enforcing Sharia and attacking passersby whom they perceive as disobeying the religious code of conduct.

On its website, the Muslim Community Patrol describes itself as a “civilian patrol organization established to patrol neighboring communities in order to protect members of the local community from escalating quality-of-life nuisance crimes. The organization’s vision is to promote the safety and well‐being of all residents of the neighboring communities.”

It adds, “The visible presence of the Muslim Community Patrol will act as a deterrent to neighborhood crime. Acting as an extra set of eyes for the NYPD, neighborhoods will be safer than ever.”

Group officials have stated that they do not intend to impose Sharia law, with vice president Rabah telling local reporters, “It’s not about ‘Sharia Law.’ It’s about Muslims taking care of people in our community.” Despite this, many New Yorkers have expressed doubt, understandably alarmed that the group may be more like the “Muslim patrols” overseas than the average neighborhood safety patrol.

Ok, so what’s the difference of an all white, black or latino doing the same? Basically it’s discrimination. Is this part of the sharia law enforcement

“It is not about Sharia Law” does that mean the same as “We are not enforcing Sharia Law”? I don’t think so! Now, just what would happen if other groups were to do the same? I don’t think this is a good idea at all.

Wake up America! From a Muslim’s mouth… By Teresa Nolivo.

The following reveals the truth of the group who take advantage of anyone who are foolish enough to allow them to.

The truth of Islam Jihad, Sharia Law, ISIS, AND Hijrah. This is his story:

I was born and raised a Muslim. My whole family is still Muslim; I know every genetic code of Islam because I have been fully indoctrinated, and I know and understand the Islamic brain.
I live and breathe with them, but I am now an insider. I left Islam once I understood that Islam is a sick and evil power that thrives on death, even the death of their own family members.
The following is the Islamic message to the United States Of America.
To the infidels of the West,
We will fight you infidels to death while your own laws protect us.
Your Democrats and your news media will support us.
N.G.O. ( Non Governmental Organisations) will legitimize us.
(C.A.I.R.); The ( Council on American–Islamic Relations) will incubate us.
The A.C.L.U. (American Civil Liberties Union) will empower us.
Western Universities will educate us…for free.
U.S. Mosques will shelter us.
O.P.E.C. The (Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries) will finance us.
Hollywood and their foolish celebrities will love us.
Kofi Annan and most of the United Nations will cover us.
Our children will immigrate from Pakistan, Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Indonesia and even from India to the US and to the other Western countries. They will go to the West for education and be given full scholarships. America is paying and will continue to pay for our children’s education and their upbringing in state funded Islamic schools.
We will abuse your welfare system because you will allow us to. Our children will also send money home while they are preparing for Jihad. We will take full advantage of American kindness, gullibility, and compassion, and when the time comes, we will stab you in the back.
We will say one thing on the camera and teach another thing to our children at home. We will give subliminal messages to our children to uphold Islam at any cost. Our children in America will always care more about Islamic Country’s interest than US interest.
We will teach our children Islamic supremacy from their very childhood. We will teach them not to compromise with the Infidel. We do this from a very early age so our children won’t hesitate to be a martyr.
We will take over the Europe first and then the US will be next. We already have a solid ground in the UK, Holland, Sweden, Spain, Italy, Germany, and we are now in the United States working diligently for the day when we overtake your country.
Your news media at CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS; and others will paint a deceptive picture portraying Islam as a victim of US and Israeli oppression. The lying news reports will spread like wildfire saying “ American military killed 10 Muslim babies, the Jews killed two Muslim women”, We will use these lies to turn your own people against you, and many of them will march in the streets, burning US flags and destroying cities as the sympathize with Muslims.
You will be impressed when you meet a moderate Muslim personally. As your next door neighbor, coworker, student, teacher, engineer, professionals you may even like us. You will find us well mannered, polite and humble that will make you say, wow, Muslims are good and peaceful people, but they will become vicious and violent when the call for Jihad sounds. Massive emigration into all countries across the globe known as Hiram; a Muslim invasion.
We will use your own laws and values of kindnes against you. You are destined to lose… Are you ready for this America and Canada?
