Jewish New Year call for justice for Muslim community: ‘Stop NYPD surveillance!’

“The Jews Against Islamophobia Coalition strongly condemns the policies and activities of the New York City Police Department (NYPD), which, the Associated Press has just revealed, designates mosques as ‘terrorism enterprises’ in order to more easily spy on them and infiltrates Muslim community organizations. For years, the NYPD has targeted the Muslim community on the basis of religion. As we approach the Jewish High Holy Days season, we urge all Jews and Jewish institutions – and all New Yorkers – to join us in publicly and unequivocally opposing the NYPD’s unlawful surveillance program.”
