Profiling: Anti-Muslim training at our Police Departments
I have been saying for some time, that our Military, Police, FBI and CIA are being steeped in fear and suspicion of Islam and Muslims. This takes forms of “Recommended Reading” Lists provided to them during and after their training…and on the lists are books such as “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam” by Robert Spencer, books by “experts” on Islam and terrorism, like Daniel Pipes and a host of other bigots who make a lot of money spreading their venom against Islam and Muslims.
Additionally, “experts” are hired by the military, the FBI, the CIA and often, paid for, by Department of Homeland Security (I call it “Fatherland Security”) funds. These “experts” got to their fame and fortune by spreading fear and hate against Islam and Muslims, by “quoting” enough out-of-context snippets from the Quran to make their case before naïve audiences who do not seek to verify the “quotes”…if they did, they would know them to be false!
These days, it is enough to speak loud and long about how Muslims are predisposed to violence and how they are easily recruited as suicide bombers…and then move on to talking about Muslims, Muslims and MUSLIMS, so that by the time these “experts” are done, another cadre of fully-armed guardians of the nation, is ready and willing to nab the last “Muzlem“!
Sure, there is that pesky thing called the constitution, but it is an old document that really does not match up to the new realities and some flexibility has to be built into the system in order to keep us all SAFE.
Which is why we still have (http://www.guampdn.com/article/20110901/NEWS01/109010349/Man-held-since-9-11-illegal-entry?odyssey=tab|topnews|text|Frontpage) ”detainees”, held without charges, since 9-11-2001…yes, its been ten years, but they are kept in humane conditions.
Which is why we continue with out “robust interrogations” abroad.
Which is why our President signed an order to assassinate a US citizen without even a trial.
Let’s not get bogged down by legal matters, when we are trying to keep our nation safe…if you are a REAL patriot, you will be more concerned about AMERICA than about them Muzlems!
Just two days ago, Associated Press broke the news that the CIA was working with the New York Police Department (http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory?id=14417797), profiling and conducting surveillance on Muslims or, people with “ancestries of interest”.
No, this was not a genealogical society with in interest in Muslim history. These NYPD officers in their ‘Demographic Unit’ drew demographic maps of Muslim populations in New York (remember, this was also tried by LAPD? http://articles.latimes.com/2007/nov/10/local/me-lapd10) and then, infiltrators were sent among those populations, to find out who was angry at the US (okay, I am…sue me!) and who “supported terrorism”.
I suppose, this is bad enough, but it is still okay, by “Patriot” standards. After all, we Muzlems are not really ‘mericans, so checking up on us “Muzlems” is not all that bad…besides, “we have a country to prtct!”
The REALLY bad thing is the fact that the CIA is involved in internal operations…again! the CIA is specifically required to act ONLY outside the US or, they are breaking the law. Again, the weasel crack is that they are not acting against REAL Americans, they are acting against “Muzlems” and that might make it okay…at least, nobody in the House or the Senate will dare question this matter for fear of looking wimpy on “trrrrsm“.
Police departments all over the country, are following the rut of anti-Muslim training, in part because it is free (Fatherland Security pays for it), in part because it helps them get free clock hours and in part, because it gets them extra credit for being trained against “terrorism”.
The fact that Muslims are on the screwed end of this deal, does not bother anyone at all. NYPD, LAPD…the Pennsylvania Police Training Commission even produced an entire manual devoted to the violent and destructive nature of the Quran, Islam and Muslims.
This anti-Muslim training HAS to stop, but unless Muslims and people of good will, do not take ACTION, nothing will change
Let us talk about our own Seattle Police Department.
Why are these men and women being sent for training to places where it is CERTAIN that they will be brainwashed into fearing and suspecting Muslims?
The 9th Annual ICTOA Conference is being held on Oct 17, 2011 in Las Vegas Nevada.
For those who don’t know, ICTOA stands for, “International Counter-Terrorism Officers Association“.
Of course, REAL Americans have no problems with this, they see the word “trrrrsm” and they whip out the flag and scream, “Let’s roll!”.
REAL Americans will be pleased to note that Daewon Kim & Britton Schaefer from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, are teaching a couple of workshops and will also be speaking during lunch, to make sure your appetite is kept sharp. Their specialty appears to be “JI-had“.
I contacted the ICTOA people and asked about the contents of their lectures and about their knowledge of Islam and got a terse response that ICTOA is a private organization and therefore, not subject to Freedom of Information Act requirements.
Another “expert” is William Gawthorp. This man got training in intelligence and in warfare, but probably decided that taking a stand against Islam and Muslims is a better career path; he is teaching workshop/s on, “Strategic Themes & Drivers in Islamic Law“.
Can anyone have doubts that people attending this excuse for “counter-terrorism” Conference will return with a trigger-finger itching to get some “Muzlems“?
The titles of these “workshops” alone, are enough to convince anyone who actually knows more than the basics about Jihad or, Islamic law, that these “experts” are bogus.
The Seattle Police Department should not be sending their officers to such conferences as long as bias-producing “experts” are invited to speak at such conferences…no self-respecting Police department should be!
SPD has been sending their officers to ICTOA conferences in the past, but they need to put a stop to this practice otherwise, there will be no incentive for organizations like ICTOA to stop inviting anti-Muslim “experts”.
The big question is, How do we get them to listen?
