NY City libraries offer Terror Recruiting Texts...

All in the name of "inclusion" and "representing the widest diversity of views."

Hard-line Islamic books that justify violence against non-Muslim societies - including texts used as terrorist "recruiting tools" - are freely available in New York City public libraries.

A Daily News spot check found a book by an Islamic theorist who inspired Osama Bin Laden and terror Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman, as well as others that promote the hatred of other religions and one with the misogynistic title: "Women Who Deserve to Go to Hell."

Several of these texts can be found at the Brooklyn Public Library's main branch, a mile from the Al Farooq mosque, where Rahman once inspired followers to try to blow up New York.

In the main stacks sits "Milestones," a notorious work revered by Bin Laden and Rahman and penned by Seyyid Qutb, a Muslim Brotherhood member executed in 1966 for trying to overthrow the Egyptian government.

There's more if you can stand it here.
