Jaw-Dropper of the Month: Guess Who Decides What FBI Agents Get To Learn About Islam?

Topics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam

Andrew C. McCarthy follows up on his piece on John McCain and Lindsey Graham's coziness with the Muslim Brotherhood with this jaw-dropper: Guess Who Decides What FBI Agents Get To Learn About Islam?:

While we're on the subject of the Muslim Brotherhood, this February 16 report from Steve Emerson at the Investigative Project on Terrorism will be an eye-opener. As I mentioned in my column over the weekend, the FBI -- following the administration's lead -- is purging its training materials of publications that are deemed offensive to Muslims (you know, crazy stuff like claims that passages in the Koran and Hadith promote violent jihad, Islamic supremacism, killing of apostates, oppression of women, etc.). So what are the criteria the Bureau uses to figure out what materials are offensive? And who decides?

You'll never guess. Steve, who has been talking to some mighty outraged law-enforcement officials, writes:

It was just revealed two days ago that FBI Director Mueller secretly met on February 8 at FBI headquarters with a coalition of groups including various Islamist and militant Arabic groups who in the past have defended Hamas and Hizballah and have also issued blatantly anti-Semitic statements. At this meeting, the FBI revealed that it had removed more than 1000 presentations and curricula on Islam from FBI offices around the country that was deemed "offensive." The FBI did not reveal what criteria was used to determine why material was considered "offensive" but knowledgeable law enforcement sources have told the IPT that it was these radical groups who made that determination. Moreover, numerous FBI agents have confirmed that from now on, FBI headquarters has banned all FBI offices from inviting any counter-terrorist specialists who are considered "anti-Islam" by Muslim Brotherhood front groups.
Read the rest here. As is subsequently pointed out by Emerson, informed sources and undisclosed documents show that the FBI directive was instigated by radical Muslim groups in the US who had repeatedly met with top officials of the Obama Administration to complain, among other things, that the mere usage of the term of "radical Islam" in FBI curricula was "offensive" and "racist." And thus, directives went out by Attorney General Eric Holder and FBI Director Mueller to censor all such material.

If this insanity wasn't coming from the Obama administration, one would assume that it was a really bad joke. But unfortunately, given the source, it's the kind of politically-correct, Muslim-appeasing, craziness we've all learned to expect.
