A moderate Muslim reformer, Imam Mohammad Tawhidi today revealed that he had personally attempted to warn NY City Mayor Bill De Blasio about specific terrorist threats but was ignored. According to Tawhidi, De Blasio was more interested in “trying to bring down President Trump and not Islamic Extremists.”

Late yesterday Tawhidi tweeted, ““About #NYC terrorist attack, I personally sent letters to Mayor De Blasio online & in person about terrorist breeding in NYC.He did nothing,” tweeted Tawhidi, adding, “In 2016, I told Mayor De Blasio that I was in NYC and noticed some hot radical centres. I was willing to point out serious cases. Ignored!” He also said, ““Not only am I a Muslim Imam who understands the threat of Islamic Extremism, I also hold a certificate in counter-terrorism. Now what!?”

He then declared that De Blasio was more interested in playing politics to bring down President Trump saying, “Fact: In the last two years, De Blasio spent all his energy and resources in trying to bring down President Trump and not Islamic Extremists.”

Tawhidi was probably referencing when De Blasio skipped an NYPD ceremony after the assassination of a cop in order to join a protest of the G-20 summit in Germany.

Also, back in 2014 Mayor De Blasio shut down a controversial police unit that tried to detect terrorist threats from the Islamic community:

“The New York Police Department said Tuesday it would disband a special unit charged with detecting possible terrorist threats by carrying out secret surveillance of Muslim groups.

“The squad that conducted the surveillance, known as the Demographics Unit, was formed in 2003. It brought the NYPD under fire from community groups and activists who accused the force of abusing civil rights and profiling.

“New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said his administration has promised ‘a police force that keeps our city safe, but that is also respectful and fair.’

“‘This reform is a critical step forward in easing tensions between the police and the communities they serve, so that our cops and our citizens can help one another go after the real bad guys,’ he said.”
