CAIR-NY: Coalition To Call For Resignation Of NYPD Commissioner Over Anti-Islam Film Cover-Up

NEW YORK, Jan. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Thursday, January 26, the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NY) -- along with the Muslim American Civil Liberties Coalition (MACLC) and other minority and civil liberties groups -- will hold a news conference on the steps of City Hall to call for the resignations of New York City Police Department (NYPD) Commissioner Ray Kelly and Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne due to revelations that they covered up their roles in the production of the anti-Islam propaganda film "The Third Jihad" that was shown to almost 1500 NYPD officers.

WHAT: News Conference to Call for Resignation of NYPD Commissioner Kelly, Deputy Commissioner Browne

WHEN: Thursday, January 26, 11 a.m.

WHERE: Steps of New York City Hall, New York, NY

CONTACT: CAIR-NY Civil Rights Manager Cyrus McGoldrick, 203-206-6883 or 212-870-2002, E-Mail:  

A New York Times article published yesterday stated:

"Commissioner Kelly is listed on the 'Third Jihad' Web site as a 'featured interviewee.' Paul J. Browne, the Police Department's chief spokesman, wrote in an e-mail that filmmakers had lifted the clip from an old interview. The commissioner, Mr. Browne said, has not asked the filmmakers to remove him from its Web site, or to clarify that he had not cooperated with them."

But in a follow-up article today, the Times reveals that Kelly and Browne were both involved in the film's production: "Deputy Commissioner Paul J. Browne told The New York Times on Monday that the filmmakers had relied on old interview clips and had never spoken with the commissioner. On Tuesday, the film's producer, Raphael Shore, e-mailed The Times and provided a date and time for their 90-minute interview with the commissioner at Police Headquarters on March 19, 2007. Told of this e-mail, Mr. Browne revised his account. 'He's right,' Mr. Browne said Tuesday of the producer. 'In fact, I recommended in February 2007 that Commissioner Kelly be interviewed.'"
