It appears the killer of two NYPD cops had a connection to the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) according to his Facebook page. It also appears that Ysmaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley went by the name of Ysmaaiyl Abdullah Mohammad.
ISNA is a Muslim Brotherhood Front Group and was an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation trial in the Northern District of Texas involving charity money being funneled to overseas terrorist groups.
Patrick Poole in PJ Media points out another Facebook reference to visiting the Al Farooq mosque. If this refers to the Al Farooq mosque in Brooklyn, that is a mosque linked to extremist activity.
Aside from his name, Brinsley's social media had also contained a reference to the Koran sura 8 verse 60, which says to strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah. Thus, it appears that aside from his criminal past, psychological issues and desire to avenge the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown as well as strike back at police, he was driven by Islamic extremism to some degree.
Are the authorities and media trying to ignore this aspect to the case?
