Islam-and-the-shooterMuslim groups like Hamas-tied CAIR, ISNA et al were agitating Muslims and inciting to violence in the wake of Ferguson.

Designated terror groups Hamas-CAIR called on imams (prayer leaders) nationwide to devote at least a portion of their khutbas (sermons) to agitating and inciting on Ferguson. In October, pro-terror groups joined CAIR’s Ferguson jihad.

UAE-designated terror group CAIR succeeded in inciting jihad last October.

Jihad in Brooklyn: Ismaaiyl Brinsley murdered two cops in cold blood in NYC. Brinsley was was following the Islamic State’s order to kill policemen, as that would “strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah.”

Friends, family and colleagues gathered for two emotional ceremonies Sunday to honor Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos a year after the cops were murdered in their patrol car.

Nearly 300 people came to the 84th Precinct stationhouse in Brooklyn to witness the unveiling of two plaques dedicated to the slain officers.

“One year ago, two New York Finest were attacked,” Mayor de Blasio told the throng.. “It was an attack to all of us, an attack on everything we value, everything we hold dear.”

The officers were fatally shot as they sat inside their marked patrol car at the intersection of Myrtle and Tompkins Aves. in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

The lone gunman, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, claimed he was targeting cops in several social media posts before the shooting. He fled to a nearby subway station, where he committed suicide.

On the anniversary of the officers’ deaths, the NYPD vowed to remember Liu and Ramos.

“We’ll never allow their memories to dim,” Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said Sunday. “Their sacrifice, their deaths were not in vain. Their deaths stopped a momentum.”

The bronze plaques will hang in the stationhouse’s roll call room, police officials. They will go next to a similar plaque for Officer Alain Schaberger, who was pushed off a stoop to his death in 2011 as he fought to arrest a man with an extensive rap sheet of domestic abuse.

During the ceremony, the mayor also spoke about Liu and Ramos’ devotion to their families.

“We know how much they meant to them,” Hizzoner said. “We know that these two men had extraordinary integrity. They did all they could and went even further.”

Liu’s father, Wei Tang Liu, addressed the crowd, with the cop’s widow, Pei Xia Chen, serving as an interpreter.

“Before my son’s death, I would hear his voice every day, for the past 33 years of his life,” he said. “This is the longest that I haven’t heard or seen him.

“I’d give anything to see him and hear his voice again,” he added.

The families have struggled to move on since the fatal shooting.

Ramos’ widow, Maritza, has created a foundation in her husband’s name. She still wears her wedding ring and is worried about their son, Justin, joining the NYPD when he finishes college.

“Liu and Ramos, we see you,” Bratton said Sunday. “We see you in the faces of your families. We see you in the faces of the public that you represented and that you supported. We see you constantly and over this year, your image has not dimmed, but has become much more magnified.”

    BLM hates cops, yet welcome police protection at their anti-cop rallies.

    • SchoolinSession

      Ooooh such a hot, narrow minded take. Fire!!

      • roccolore

        Liberals are the narrow-minded hypocrites. The anti-cop hypocrites are just like the “anti-gun” advocates with armed security.

        • SchoolinSession

          Hot takes galore over here!

        • Steve Brown

          The liberals are oblivious to the reality that the people they are helping will return their love with horrific devastation of their lives and the lives of their loved ones. Just like the people in San Bernardino that after giving gifts and a baby shower to the two terrorists were themselves showered with bullets of death.

    • lee

      BLM is Farrakhan & the nation of sandbaggers (islam) creation.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Another two decent human beings were senselessly murdered by the death cult known as islam. The police are societies first line of defence to repel oppression and preserve freedom. They must be supported and encouraged, after the blue line fades, it is anarchy, that is not desirable, it is avoidable. The government must support the police in defending the American, not some imported oppressive dictatorship of a corrupt and violent tribe. Liberal socialism loaded the gun that murdered these two decent people. Their friends and family are what is left of their ideals, remember them.

        Lookie, she’s got her own muslum stalker! I hope stalking her isn’t interfering w/your rug headbanging sessions for allah. Remember, the more rug burns you get on ur forehead the more the little boy muslims and muslimahs will like you!

        • SchoolinSession

          Muhammed & Jesus can take turns blowing me as far as I’m concerned. They can snowball with it after for all i care. Might be kinda hot actually

          • SchoolinSession

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            Does ur zabiba hurt tonight mullah man? Hopefully not as bad as ur hemorrhoids!

          • SchoolinSession

            i don’t know what zabiba or mullah mean but this preparation h got me lit

  • SchoolinSession

    Just in case you didn’t see the #RIPEricGardner and #RIPMikeBrown hashtags, this is obviously an inner city vs the cops motivated killing and NOT a Jihadi one. If you people don’t see it then you’re even dumber than you are which is really f*cking dumb to begin with. .

    • roccolore

      Brinsley was a member of a terror-linked group called ISNA.

      • SchoolinSession

        I heard he listened to Fat Joe, Big Pun and the rest of the Terror Squad

        • IzlamIsTyranny

          All he needed was allah, the ballah and moe-ham-head to inspire his jihadi rage.

          • SchoolinSession

            Allah the ballah’s mixtape was the hottest album of 2015

  • lee

    Obama & Clinton are to blame for this.

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    RIP officers Liu and Ramos. I wonder how many muslums in the NYPD were celebrating their deaths, rather than commemorating them?
