New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly is under fire from civil rights group, who are demanding his resignation over his appearance in an inflammatory anti-Muslim film shown to his department's officers during training. 

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) said Kelly and Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne should immediately resign from their positions for taking part in the production of the 'Third Jihad', "a blatantly bigoted and hate-filled film vilifying the American-Muslim community". 
 
The 72-minute film shows Muslims shooting Christians in the head and conveys a message that the community cannot be trusted. It also shows a doctored photo of an Islamic flag flying over the White House, car bombs exploding, executed children lying covered by sheets. 
 
Its message is that the true agenda of much of Islam in America is to "infiltrate and dominate America". 
 
The group said Kelly had "lied" to the community by initially denying any involvement in the film. 
 
"The decision to take part in the film, as well as show the film to nearly 1,500 NYPD cadets raises serious concerns about Kelly's ability to serve and protect minority groups in New York City," the group said. 
 
ADC President Warren David said the residents of New York deserve "transparency, honesty, integrity" and not a leader like Kelly who lacks all these qualities. 
 
The New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations along with the Muslim American Civil Liberties Coalition (MACLC) and other minority and civil liberties groups said the revelation about the use of the video during police training comes following a year-long series of "misstatements and retractions" from Kelly and Browne that indicates a total disregard for the civil rights of American Muslims and a complete lack of respect for one of the city's largest religious communities.
