Monitoring of Muslim students sparks outrage
New Haven: Yale University is objecting
to the monitoring of Muslim student association websites by
the New York Police Department, while Muslim leaders call for
investigations and student groups at Rutgers University
The Associated Press reported Saturday that an NYPD
intelligence unit visited websites, blogs and forums of Muslim
student associations at Yale and other universities.
Yale President Richard Levin says such surveillance is
"antithetical to the values" of Yale and the country.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations and Rutgers
University in New Jersey called for investigations.
An NYPD spokesman says police wanted to get a better
handle on what was occurring at student associations.
He cited 12 people arrested or convicted on terrorism
charges in the United States and abroad who had once been
members of Muslim student associations.
