New York City Muslim groups are calling for the resignations of New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and a deputy commissioner over the screening of an "inflammatory" stealth-jihad film.

Commissioner Kelly appeared in "The Third Jihad: Radical Islam's Vision for America," but called it inflammatory on Wednesday. The film was shown to about 1,500 officers at a Brooklyn police facility a year ago.

During his segment of the film, Kelly discusses the presence of Iranian intelligence agents and Hezbollah representatives in New York City. Kelly's segment can be viewed on The Third Jihad website.

The film also questions Muslim groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), who present moderate views and stop short of condeming terrorist organizations.

The film also includes interviews with former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, former CIA Director James Woolsey, and former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge.

According to the film, there were three jihads: One at the time of Muhammad, a second in the Middle Ages and a third that is under way covertly throughout the West today, reports the New York Times.

Commissioner Kelly said he has disciplined the sergeant who screened the film for other officers, because she didn't obtain authorization, reports the New York Daily News.

The film was produced by the Clarion Fund, which produces and distributes films about "the threat of radical Islam."

The time of liberal political correctness is done. When we see three daughters and a wife murdered in a Sharia law sanctioned murder, Honor Killing, this past week, right here in America, then the censorship by the radical CAIR should be dismissed!

cwjjohn @ 1/26/2012 6:19 PM

Muslims in the United States need to get a grip. They need to go by the laws of this great country, not Sharia law. If they want Sharia law, go to Iran, Iraq, or some other Muslim loving country that will put up with that crap.

bob @ 1/26/2012 6:23 PM

These "Muslim groups" are just front groups for terrorist much like, The Irish Republian Army had thier polical arm the Purto Rican Group FALN had their polictical arm, etc. Yet so many people, particularly politicians are fooled, too intimidated or afraid of being politcially incorrect. Forget the economy, war in Afganistan, etc. - Political correctness ids the most serious problem in the country today.

@Richard Isaacs: Nice use of caps. Keep your head in the sand. Its better down there.

Stan @ 1/26/2012 6:46 PM

Again like with many things observed on here..what is the rest of the story. Can I assume the purpose of the screening was for intelligence purposes(?) I hear it all too often, that we need to understand other cultures in order to deal with them effectively. Unfortunatley the Muslims we will deal with are teh radical ones. Now did this particular story need to be used i don't know. I will say there is way too much political correctness.

[email protected] @ 1/26/2012 6:47 PM

R.Isaacs: Maybe you should study the Muslim beliefs a little closer. We are all infidels and are to be "banished" from this earth. It's sheep like you that are getting people killed, here and in the sandbox. I for one am tired of all the bending over our pols due to appease these folks. Don't like our laws? Go back to where you came from. Don't like the heat because of the terror your religion has brought upon you? Leave. Our LEOs have enough to worry about without the threat of a nut case wearing a bomb. Cowards always go for the innocent, and thats a fact. If every "drive-by" was done by a tall, blond Swede guess who we'd be watching? And showing films of. Forwarned is forarmed.

George D. Little @ 1/26/2012 7:04 PM

It is better to always error on side of caution. You have to be realistic here as well, look at the historical and most factual background if a Muslim gets what he believes to be a call from Allah, he could take out a lot of people. Sorry about offending anyone but that is the reality. Law Enforcement officers need to be as transparent and as sterile as possible in order to protect and serve this great country. Law Enforcement is our first line of defense here in the homeland.

Leonard Mather @ 1/26/2012 7:11 PM

I attended Trexpo East in 2010 when a Muslim Apologist crashed in on a forged badge. He took exception to Steve Emerson's revealing locations of Terrorist Cells in US. He was promptly surrounded by armed SWAT teams and gingerly walked out in the encirclement, fearing if he dare touch any of them, his ass would be grass. We spend too much time trying to NOT upset a Muslim. They know our weaknesses within the Liberal camps and use our own laws against us. Sun Tzu wrote in his Art of War: You must know the enemy BETTER than he knows you. If not, you will lose; he will win. They do NOT WANT us to KNOW them and reveal them.

Mike @ 1/26/2012 7:29 PM

Why do we continue the folly of pretending Islam is a religion? It is a centuries old conspiracy to to conquer the world for a barbaric philosophy. They should not be recognized as a religion at all. It is a political force for the conquest of the world for by a people who have not advance their ideas and beliefs in over 13 centuries. Their ideas are just a wee bit out of date.

Dave @ 1/26/2012 8:08 PM

I wonder if we give Muslims at CAIR a dollar, could they go out and buy a sense of perspective. If the author of that piece thinks the Council on American-Islamic Relations a moderate group is a joke. Just because you are somewhat less radical than the mad Mullahs in Iran, doesn't make you a moderate.

TimFromLA @ 1/26/2012 8:38 PM

How about this, tax all religions. Hell, get rid of it. If you want to worship the Sky-Spook (God, Jeebus, Allah, Vishnu, Buddha and the billions of other spooks out there) Do it. Stew in your own mental illness. But don't go after one madness. Don't just go after Kelly because he's Besmirching the Muslim faith, Besmirch the Christians too! There is no God. There is no Jesus. I defy ANYONE here to prove to me that there is a god. A loving God. A god who hates their own children, the Muslims??? You know, Abraham's offspring from Hagar?

I have no God to believe in and I am no randian. But Ayn Rand was rational enough to not believe in some holy know, the mother of the libertarian party?

anderson @ 1/26/2012 9:45 PM

We love America instead of taking an uneducated guess why do not look at Cartels beheading americans in Mexico while claiming christianity and wearing a cross of christ on thier chest

how about paying a gang member half a million for pulling a gun on a police in a wrong ful death law suit

how about black gangs shooting each other while having a cross of christ tattoo all over their body

how about the oklahoma bomber was he a muslim?

How about colombine or virginia tech shooters were they muslims

do not be so ignorant

mike @ 1/26/2012 10:10 PM

there are lots of ignorant people here

you have sureno 13s latin kings GDs Vice Lords with jesus tattoo on their body terrorising America

gp cobb @ 1/27/2012 12:01 AM

Kudos to Mike here and 99% of opinions expressed here, In with the Constitution out with Sharia Law and all it's followers, Clear out, JMO.

JP @ 1/27/2012 1:21 AM

How can you call CAIR moderate if they stop short of condemning terrorist organizations?

JP @ 1/27/2012 1:26 AM

Tim, God doesn't hate His children, but He will discipline them. I pray you come to that realization before it's too late.

Craig @ 1/27/2012 4:01 AM

Know your enemy. CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator and a great proponent of "cultural jihad"...which is the plan to destroy the country from within using the tools provided by "useful idiots" and liberal judges. In Oklahoma the voters pushed for no foreign law being used in the courts...of course, a liberal judge negated the votes of the 70% of the voters who didn't want Shariah law in their state.

These CAIR pimps don't dress Islamic, speak nicely and don't throw flaming "Muslim Mafia" to see what they're really like. CAIR is trying to get this book destroyed and roaches everywhere, they hate the light.

If police forces can use the very liberal biased and racist "Southern Poverty Law Center" to lecture on terrorist groups (somehow they're always white and conservative groups...strange) and the very anti-male guys are the evildoers and women always victim groups lecture on domestic violence (naw, women are never violent, only guys are abusers)...then the truth about Muslim and Islam is certainly OK.

I was at the Trexpo East lecture....I commented, "To be a good muslim is to be a terrorist, a jihadist and to fight and kill all unbelievers" a bad muslim is peaceful.

Scott @ 1/27/2012 4:18 AM

Did you guys actually read what R. Isaacs wrote?

Bryon @ 1/27/2012 5:24 AM

Islamic crybaby-"No! Don't let them see what we do or how we do it. We must keep secretive to succeed with our Mulslime terror tactics. We can claim racism. Those Americans always back away when you call them Racists."

If you don't like THIS country my islamic friends, go somewhere else. Please. We don't need you here or your criminal elements.

Mondal @ 1/27/2012 5:34 AM

Only the Muslim all over the world don't recognize any other religions and they don't have any respect for others.Their philosophy no other go to heaven except muslims.Their mission is to suppress other ideologists.Extremist!!!

carvel @ 1/27/2012 5:36 AM

go by our laws or go back home.

Wayne L. Chonicki @ 1/27/2012 7:44 AM

There was a protest slogan popular HALF A CENTURY AGO (1960's) that: "If YOU aren't part of the Solution, then you ARE the Problem"... While I understand the moderate Muslim's resentment of the painting of ALL Muslims as "Extremists" I ALSO expect them to understand that until Allah puts "The Mark of Cain" prominently on the foreheads of those intent upon doing violence upon the innocent, you have both Extremist Cowards hiding among the peaceful Muslim faithful and 'none of MY business' Muslims who by their knowing silence... are technically "Accessories-before-the-fact" to these cowardly Radicals. TRUE peaceful Muslims need institute their own version of "Neighborhood Watch" or not expect to NOT be viewed as complicit in these acts of terrorism. When you rein-in your own, WE will not need to ~ Its no different than curbing drug trafficking in ethnic neighborhoods wherein those who live there KNOW who's doing the dealing. CLEAN YOUR OWN HOUSE... these Radical cowards bleed as readily and easily as YOU do. They seek martyrdom, provide them a "corporal work of Mercy"... martyr them ~

Harry @ 1/27/2012 7:53 AM

I've been the police for over 30 yrs now. Criminal profiling is a must. Where was the hoopla when we were watching the IRA? As a famous risk manager likes to say, "predictable is preventable". Terrorism is not going away in our lifetime. We need to use all the tools in the toolbox to be prepared and prepare to respond.

Scott from Florida @ 1/27/2012 9:26 AM

CAIR was founded in June 1994 under a tentacle of The Muslim Brotherhood. Why even entertain the demands of any organization known for supporting radicals? The same radicals who are responsible for more murder, mayhem and destruction as a religion than any other. This is including the crusades.

Adam @ 1/27/2012 9:43 AM

WOW. it saddens me to see all this hateful speech from what i hope are not LEO's. I feel so blessed to be a Muslim Police Officer in Los Angeles where fortnately i dont have to deal with this hate against my religion. Yes it IS a religion and for those who properly follow it, a peaceful one. With MILLIONS of muslims in America, if all this hateful stuff mentioned is true, then us millions of "barbarians" would all be locked up on terrorism charges right? But no its a small amount of morons who are extremists who commit unspeakable acts. I am proud of the work i do in LE and the anti-terrorism units ive worked with. I hope someday in this great country of freedom of speech and religion people will have a better understanding of islam and not believe all the mainstream media BS that teaches people that every muslim is a threat. I will not let this garbage i just read above dishearten me because ive worked with hundreds of officers of all faiths wearing tan/green or PD blue whom i have the deepest of respect and they respect me... America is a melting pot, a criminal is a criminal regardless of religion, race, or anything else. Hope you a stay safe out there and i ask you as a brother in LE to try and educate yourselves more. Maybe actually talk to a muslim and not just listen to mainstream news whos only goal is to create fear amongst the public. Be safe

jack @ 1/27/2012 10:47 AM

You have to be blind not to see the true intent of this "religion". They want to destroy and concuer all of us. We have one in the whitehouse now who seems intent on eroding all our constitioutional rights and to appease the radicals. We need to wake up !

Brandon @ 1/27/2012 10:55 AM

[email protected] & Dustin: try actually reading what Richard wrote....

Jason Barnes @ 1/27/2012 11:48 AM

He deserves a model for helping alert us to the threat of "covert and gradual Jihad." What incredible arrogance of the increasingly aggressive Muslims to demand that he be silenced! He is correct, and it is an absolutely fundamental tenet of Islam, that Muslims are supposed to dominate and conquer "non believers."

Full disclosure: I have personal experience with Islam, having come within inches of being blown away in 1968 by a bomb planted by Yassir Arafat's "El Fatah," the bomb being aimed at the main entrance to a maternity hospital on a busy street in Jerusalem. Several people including newborns were murdered; shrapnel whizzed by on both sides of me but I was not scratched.

John @ 1/27/2012 1:07 PM

Should our leaders not prepare us for threats? Should they dig the hole in which we bury our heads in the sand? While it is clear that not all people who are practicing Islam are bent on destroying "the West" and all that, there are some, and to ignore the threat allows it to only get worse.

Larry @ 1/27/2012 2:03 PM

I learned ALL I needed to learn about the Muslim religion on 9/11/01.

charlie @ 1/27/2012 7:20 PM

Our country was founded, IN GOD WE TRUST, those that OBAMA has let in and all the others he has given in to, follow the laws of the land and you do not have the right to try to change it, If you don't like it - Leave. You wasn't invited by Americans in the first place.

DaveSAM25G @ 1/27/2012 10:07 PM

We have plenty of armor and protocols to deal with an outside threat, but we have neglected to pay attention to threats within our own midst. We need to transcend our own denial and deal with these issues.

Francis Honyotski @ 1/28/2012 8:18 AM

Tuff if they dont like it go back home this is a cristian county not musilm.

Will @ 1/31/2012 8:37 AM

So let me get this straight, You want to have the top most highly credentialed Law Enforcement Professional in the world, who has implemented one of the most expansive and sophisticated anti- terrorist programs in our countrys' largest populated city TO RESIGN because he is not politically correct orsensitive ??? Wake up and smell the coffee. The citizens of NY, as myself , feel safer and our families are more secure than anywhere else in this world. We should all start a "STAY RAY K" to keep or promote this courageous leader of the guardians of our civilized society. Pride, Integrity and Guts are note out of fashion
