This is dhimmitude on steroids.
In an official training manual s given to national and local law enforcement, the Department of Homeland Security is still emphasizing ‘Right Wing extremists’ but gives the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamists a pass, advising law enforcement to defer to them.
In contrast to that famous 2009 report talking about the dangers of veterans, pro-life advocates, critics of same-sex marriage, 2nd Amendment advocates and Evangelicals, the training manuals on Islamists cautions law enforcement, “Don’t use training that equates radical thought, religious expression, freedom to protest, or other constitutionally-protected activity, including disliking the U.S. government without being violent” when it comes to Islamists.
The manual, which was produced by an inter-agency working group from DHS and the National Counterterrorism Center, advises, “Trainers who equate the desire for Sharia law with criminal activity violate basic tenets of the First Amendment.”
This would be a hoot if the DHS wasn’t deadly serious – Sharia law violates the First Amendment and most of the rest of the Bill of Rights explicitly!
The checklist also advised against using Muslim “trainers who are self-professed ‘Muslim reformers’” – i.e, non-jihadi moderates – because they “may further an interest group agenda instead of delivering generally accepted, unbiased information.”
I don’t know which is worse…what the DHS is saying about itself or what it’s saying about Muslims, that they’re naturally radical and only generally accept the Islamist and Muslim Brotherhood point of view.
The manual also tells law enforcement not to rely on “unsubstantiated theories” and “conspiracies,” that say that “many mainstream Muslim organizations have terrorist ties” or are “fronts for Islamic political organizations whose true desire is to establish Sharia law in America.”
And this manual advises advises trainees not to assume Muslim groups are “using democratic processes, like litigation and free speech, to subvert democracy and install Sharia law.”
Never mind that our own Justice Department proved just that in Federal Court in the Holy Land Foundation trail, and that U.S. District Court Judge Jorge Solis said as much in his 2010 ruling, writing, “The government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR [Council on American-Islamic Relations], ISNA [Islamic Society of North America], NAIT [North American Islamic Trust], with the Islamic Association for Palestine, and with Hamas.”
As a matter of fact, most of the senior executives of these Muslim Brotherhood fronts would be sitting in jail for money laundering and material aid to terrorism if Attorney General Eric Holder and the Obama Justice Department hadn’t filed declinations to prosecute motions on all of the individuals and groups cited as unindicted co-conspirators. That ended what would have been the second Holy Land Foundation trial, an open and shut case because the groups appealed the first one, leading to Judge Solis’ ruling. Obama’s Justice Department essentially let CAIR, ISNA, and NAIT off the hook, as well as the executives involved.
Instead, we now have people in influential positions in the Obama Administration with strong Muslim Brotherhood ties and an official ‘training manual’ for law enforcement that could have been put out by the Brotherhood itself.Aside from the chilling effect this will have on law enforcement actually working to prevent jihad in America, it will also have the effect and stigmatizing American Muslims whom choose not to toe the Islamist line.
In later years – perhaps, unfortunately after we have a few more incidents that end up with more dead Americans – it will come out that the Obama Administration was just as thoroughly penetrated by the Ikhwan, the Muslim Brotherhood as the Truman Administration was penetrated by Soviet spies and sympathizers.
And it will have cost us dearly in the meantime.
