Umar Abdul-Jalil, the executive director of ministerial services — i.e., the chief chaplain – to the New York City prison system has been suspended according to this NY Post story. His offense? He claimed Muslims were being tortured in Gitmo. Er, no. He claimed they were being tortured in NY jails. And he claimed that the, “greatest terrorists in the world occupy the White House.”
We have received no reports on which union Mr. Abdul-Jalil belongs to, though that fact is crucial to the future of this case. If he is a member of the teachers’ union, the city may be paralyzed by a general strike. If he is a member of the Teamsters or the Longshoremens’, his grievance may be considered by the same arbitrators who adjudged that of Jimmy Hoffa.
The important lesson in this is to be found in the doctrinal consistency between this guy’s claims and those coming out of current and former Gitmo inmates.
