ACLU to New York cops: Drop dead -- By Robert Knight, The Washington Times

On Sept. 11, 2001, the twin towers of the World Trade Center burn and later collapse after hijacked planes deliberately crashed into them in New York City. A multimillion-dollar reward was offered for now-dead terrorist Osama bin Laden after the attacks.Imagine that it was Sept. 12, 2001, and you opened your newspaper, gazed in horror at the many photos of unspeakable carnage at the World Trade Center's twin towers, and found this story: "The American Civil Liberties Union today urged the Justice Department to probe the surveillance of Muslim Americans by the New York City Police Department."

Fast forward to this past week, and you could have read it for real. The ACLU is upset that New York City police, who lost 23 officers when Muslim extremists flew hijacked passenger jets into the World Trade Center on Sept 11, 2001, killing a total of 2,753 people and more at the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania, are keeping an eye on the city's mosques in order to thwart further terrorist attacks.

If you are a university-trained moral relativist, you might ask huffily, "Why aren't they monitoring the Episcopalian community? Or the Jewish community?" You could even demand that the Campfire Girls be put under the same surveillance. For good measure, how about that shady-looking group of nuns over near the subway stairs, eating ice cream cones?

The simple answer is that no Episcopalians, Jews or nuns have flown airliners into buildings, planted pressure-cooker bombs in knapsacks at a Boston Marathon finish line, killed more than a dozen fellow soldiers in Texas while yelling "Allahu akbar," systematically executed non-Muslim shoppers at a Kenya mall, burned down churches in Egypt or beheaded Christian girls on their way to school in Indonesia.
