For those not familiar with New York City, Brooklyn College is only a short subway ride to the 911 Memorial and Museum, that pays tribute to the thousands of innocent lives lost on that infamous day, and which houses the thousands upon thousands of artifacts recovered.

However a short subway ride also produces some rather startling results about the Islamic communities throughout the greater New York City area.

According to reports an undercover police officer spent four years befriending students in the school’s Islamic Society in order to spy on the school’s Muslim students.

As a result of the sting, two Queens residents, Noelle Velentzas and Asia Siddiqui, were arrested and charged with allegedly planning to build a bomb.

There is no evidence, however, that the women were in the midst of planning a specific attack at the time of their arrest

For its part, Brooklyn College authorities have denied having any knowledge of the undercover officer’s presence on the campus, adding that they were not notified of such activity by the NYPD.

However one thing is clear in that New York City continues to be the number one target of radical Islamic terrorists and aside from these two “wanna be terrorists”, you can be assured there are some serious hidden sleeper cells, just waiting to strike.

Mayor de Blasio has promised to stop the surveillance.
“Muslim New Yorkers are still fighting for basic human rights,” said de Blasio. “We recently shut down the Demographics Unit at NYPD, which conducted surveillance on Muslim New Yorkers. Because it’s unfair to single out people on the sole basis of their religion.”

Thankfully however New York City has perhaps the finest anti terrorist law enforcement capabilities within the country.
