MIAMI, Dec. 1 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The Florida office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-FL) today held a diversity training workshop on Islam and the American Muslim community at the FBI's Jacksonville Division All Employee Conference.
More than 150 law enforcement agents, including FBI and Joint Terrorism Task Force supervisory personnel, attended the workshop that examined basic Islamic beliefs and concepts, common stereotypes of Islam and Muslims and ways in which to improve interactions with the Muslim community. Agents were able to ask questions throughout the two-hour CAIR-FL presentation.
"This type of positive interaction between law enforcement officials and the Muslim community helps break down barriers to communication and promotes mutual understanding," said CAIR-FL Chairman Parvez Ahmed.
Ahmed said CAIR-FL hopes that it will continue to expand the program to help train law enforcement authorities in other parts of the state, just as it did today in Jacksonville and earlier in Miami. CAIR offices in other states have offered similar training programs.
CAIR, America's largest Muslim civil liberties group, is headquartered in Washington, D.C., and has 29 offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada.

That is the last thing we need...FBI agents trying to crash planes into buildings too!
This is called Information Operations. Oh well....we use it against the enemy so I guess it is only fair that they use it against us. Hope the FBI isn't that stupid to recognize it.
Sha-ZAyum, Barney! That sounds like money well spent.

Wonder how much $ the government paid for that...
Nope, we can't post from 'The Onion' anymore, it's real.
Yeah, if this was a "know your enemy" opp, then I'd feel better about it, but I got a feeling some touchy feely liberal is making them do it.

There is no excuse to let the fascist islamists to train our FBI agents. Would you let a bunch of wolfs guard a chicken coup? OF COURCE NOT!
CAIR has only one purpose to have islam take over AMERICA!
If baloon-man Ibrahim Hooper is involved, I'm against it.
