Surfing the Internet tonight looking for some information on NY Mosques, I came across this article about a brutal day at a Harlem Mosque back in 1972. Even after the murder of NYC Policeman, authority figures were still bowing to Islam.
Harlem Mosque Incident 1970′s
April 14, 1972, was one of the darkest days in the NYPD history. Patrolmen Phil Cardillo and Vito Navarra were riding in 28 sector George. They were the first RMP to respond to a 10‑13 on the second floor at 102 West 116 Street.
After arriving and entering the building which was a mosque they questioned about 10 muslims at the front desk about the call. Suddenly the muslims shouted “Allah Akhbar”, more muslims came from rooms, then the officers were beaten and stomped by numerous black muslims.
Knapp called Commissioner Pat Murphy and advised him of the turmoil inside and outside the mosque. While Knapp was talking on the phone he heard shouting. He turned and saw Louis Farrakhan and Charlie Rangel leading a large group of muslims down the basement stairs. Farrakhan was shouting that all the cops must leave the temple. Knapp tells Haugh to move to the street.
