NYPD Surveilled Activities At Mosque Connected To New Mexico Compound, But ACLU & Linda Sarsour Intervened

This is why Wahhaj is trying to portray himself now as just the poor upset baffled father/grandfather who doesn’t know what’s really going on or why his son was allegedly training his children to become school shooters. He doesn’t want people to start re-looking into what’s going on at the mosque… Again.

Linda Sarsour, who calls Wahhaj her mentor, was one of the people who called for New York City Police Department surveillance of suspicious activities at particular mosques to be halted.


Kyle Shideler, who calls himself in his Twitter bio a “purveyor of radical Islam,” added some more detail to that story about a New Mexico compound made of garbage where five people were arrested for child abuse after 11 children were found living in Third World conditions. Court documents said one of the men was training children to commit school shootings.

According to The New York Post, one of the men arrested, Siraj Wahhaj, is the son of Brooklyn imam Siraj Wahhaj, 68, who heads the Masjid At-Taqwa mosque. More

Here are the court filing’s juicy bits in mentioned in Shideler’s tweet. (You can download the PDF from the ACLU’s site too.)

The NYPD’s investigation of certain individuals associated with Plaintiff Masjid At Taqwa was based upon information about their lengthy history of suspected criminal activity, some of it terroristic in nature. This information includes but is not limited to: illegal weapons trafficking by members of the mosque’s security team and the mosque caretaker both within the mosque and at the store adjacent; illegal weapons trafficking by certain attendees of the mosque; allegations that the mosque ran a “gun club”; and allegations that the assistant Imam had earmarked portions of over $200,000 raised in the mosque to a number of US Government designated terrorist organizations.

Members of the mosque’s security team have instructed individuals on how to disarm police officers and have led martial arts classes involving individuals convicted on terrorism charges. Since at least 2003, Masjid At Taqwa members have participated in and sponsored paintball exercises and survival training outside New York City, activities which have been carried out for training purposes by violent extremists in multiple terrorism cases in the United States and abroad-such as the “Virginia Jihad” case, the Fort Dix plot, the 7/7 attacks in London, and the UK fertilizer bomb plot (“Operation Awakening”).
