Rudy Giuliani: De Blasio Should Reinstate Mosque Monitoring



New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio erred when he ended a program to monitor mosques suspected of teaching a radical form of Islam, says one of his predecessors in the office, Rudy Giuliani.

Appearing Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Giuliani said he first introduced a program in 1994 after the first World Trade Center attack. That attack, he said, was hatched primarily in three New Jersey mosques.

When people complained about the action, he said, he responded that he couldn’t imagine any priest or rabbi would complain about putting officers in their services.

“Churches generally want people to come in and worship with them,” he said.

Giuliani’s immediate successor, Michael Bloomberg, formally initiated the program, dubbed the Demographics Unit, or Zone Assessment Unit.

But de Blasio, during his campaign, vowed to end the program and not carry out surveillance against a mosque unless there was specific evidence of a crime.

Giuliani called that “knocking logic out,” saying it made as much sense as if he had stayed out of Italian social clubs when he was investigating the Mafia when he was a U.S. attorney.

“It’s not racial profiling. It’s logical deduction,” he said.

Police once caught two Muslim extremists two hours before they were going to bomb a subway, by using those tactics, Giuliani said.

“It’s irresponsible not to do it.”

  1. I think that the cancer of the world are the leftist. who always support the dictators the criminals and the terrorist and at the same time always prevent the civilized world from taking any actions that may stop these acts and always with the same excuse “freedom”. how about freedom for the civilized and law abiding citizens of the world. look at France but then facts never confuses a leftist because he already made up his mind and he knows better, they always try to save you from yourself

  2. Why do these extremist, radical, out of the mainstream leftists love Islam so much?

    Islam is exactly the opposite of what left-wing extremists hold dear: Islam hates toeivah unions, they don’t hold by abortion, women have no rights, etc.

    The only similarity I can think of is that leftists and Islam both seem to agree that the Government is the be all and end all of just about everything.
