Egyptian Chronicles: Do not go these cafes , restaurants and shops if you are NY !!

Saturday, September 24, 2011

Do not go these cafes , restaurants and shops if you are NY !!

There are files leaked from New York Police Department “NYPD” showing that the “NYPD” was spying on Moroccans , Egyptians and along other Middle Eastern nationalities in New York through restaurants and cafes. These files reached to AP that published them online after redacting names.

Not only the Moroccan restaurants and cafes were targeted and were under surveillance there were Egyptian , Syrian , Lebanese and even Italian cafes and restaurant.

This reminds me of the famous techniques of state security that surely is still applied by the new National security.

I am not surprised the “NYPD”' ‘s actions because I know after 9/11 how things were for the Arab and Islamic communities in the States.

Now to our dear Egyptians , Moroccans and Syrians in NY , do not go these restaurants and cafes as the walls got ears there.

  1. ... do not go these restaurants and cafes as the walls got ears there.

    How do you know the restaurant owners accepted the spying? They probably didn't, they are immigrant itself. As you can see most of them are descents of some other nationality.

    In a way the restaurants are real victims here. By asking to boycott these you only end up hurting them more.

  2. @Zeinobia, They were investigating crimes committed by Arabs. So of course they looked in places Arabs frequent, where else? Not sure why you have a problem with that. The document you linked to tells some of the crimes:

    Selling fake ID. Marriage fraud. Selling hashish and heroin. Setting up arranged marriages. Credit card fraud.

    By the way, Mohamed ElBaradei has fallen into fourth place in the Voice of Egypt straw poll.

    You do? Then you also know they were and are a hell of a lot better for Muslims and Arabs in NY and everywhere else in the US than they are and have been for any non-Muslim and non-Arab in Egypt or in any other Arab country, right? Hell, things are better for ARAB MUSLIMS anywhere in the US than they are in any Arab country. And you know that too, don't you? :)

    This reminds me of the famous techniques of state security that surely is still applied by the new National security.

    That's because you are a crazy person.

    Jason, I don't know why you bother with trying to be rational on this blog. Just go with the flow and enjoy the opportunity to catch a glimpse of what it is that makes the Arab world so screwed up :)

  7. The US has many of it's own homegrown terrorist, religious and extreme radical groups (including some in the legalized Tea Party)to worry about.
    A sample is listed under 'Internet Resources'@

    As a matter of fact, Bush, Cheney,Wolfowitz,Pearl and the remaining gang would be put on trial for deceit, terrorism and murder in a free and truthful world.

  10. Excuse me but if someone has nothing to hide why would they care if the cafe's are being monitored? Americans them self are monitored sometimes in the USA. There is freedom of speech you can say what you like anywhere your go in the USA as long as you are not being a threat to national security why would care if they hear some of what you say?

  11. To clear up some of the arguments on the blog I can state that Latin, Mexicans and Arabic people are stereo typed and monitored at times in the USA. But there are many many Americans who do NOT agree with these actions it is not the America Way !
