    New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly responds to questions during a news conference Friday, Feb. 24, 2012 in New York. The New York Police Department targeted Muslim mosques with tactics normally reserved for criminal organizations, according to newly obtained police documents that showed police collecting the license plates of worshippers, monitoring them on surveillance cameras and cataloging sermons through a network of informants. The documents, obtained by The Associated Press, have come to light as the NYPD fends off criticism of its monitoring of Muslim student groups and its cataloging of mosques and Muslim businesses in nearby Newark, New Jersey.

    An assortment of halal foods and religious items are seen from inside Abdul Kareem Abdullah's cafe, as he is interviewed by the Associated Press regarding New York Police Department surveillance of the Muslim community in Newark, N.J., Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2012. Americans in New Jersey?s largest city were subjected to surveillance as part of the New York Police Department?s effort to build databases of where Muslims work, shop and pray. The operation in Newark was so secretive, even the city?s mayor says he was kept in the dark. For months in mid-2007, plainclothes NYPD officers snapped pictures of mosques and eavesdropped in Muslim neighborhoods. The result was a 60-page report, obtained by The Associated Press. It cited no evidence of crimes. It was just a guide to Newark?s Muslims. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak)
