JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Some high-ranking religious leaders joined
with New Jersey Muslims on Thursday in demanding reassurance from state
authorities that no one is being spied on because of their religion.
The head of the Newark archdiocese spoke out in solidarity with
Muslims who feel that reports of the NYPD conducting surveillance of
mosques and Muslim student groups in New Jersey and elsewhere has
crossed the line beyond acceptable counter-terrorism methods.
