Islamic Group Asks Napolitano To Investigate Islamophobic Trainers Tuesday, May 24, 2011 By Penny Starr
(CNSNews.com) An Islamic civil rights group has sent a letter to the Secretary of Homeland Security asking her to investigate whether outside trainers in charge of training national security personnel are Islamophobic.
On Monday, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, distributed a press release about the letter, of the same date, addressed to Janet Napolitano. CAIR charges in the letter that an agency-wide probe should be launched to determine if trainers offer hostile, stereotypical and grossly inaccurate information about Muslims and Islam as part of their training procedures.
The council cited a security drill conducted by the Transportation Security Administration last week at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
I again write to you to respectfully request that you conduct an agency-wide investigation of the use of outside trainers who offer hostile, stereotypical and grossly inaccurate information about Muslims and Islam to our nation's security personnel, states the letter, signed by CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad.
The use of these fear-mongers does harm to our national security because it misinforms DHS personnel about Islam and American Muslims, reads the letter. It also harms the relationship of trust with the Muslim community.

I don’t remember any investigations for Italophobes when the FBI was going after the Mafia.
Yeah, Islamaphobic like the ones where the Jihadi doctor shot up the base...and killed 13 (I think) Americans, mostly soldiers????
The most disturbing data comes from polls of outwardly moderate Muslims, those who would never dream of personally carrying out violent terroristic jihadist attacks. A disturbingly large number seems to approve of their fellow Mooses who do not forsake violence in their religious cause.
“Islamophobic” AKA “rational”.
I AM ISLAMOPHOBIC!!
For some strange reason I can’t quite put my finger on, I just don’t like seeing my wife and daughter gang raped and having my head cut off.
I know...call me silly that way...
Top priority for Nappy !!!
One was pregnant too.
SoA - Soldier of allah
What a country!
We afford our enemies ample opportunity and leeway to take their best shots at us.. and then turn the other cheek,, again and again..
“....outwardly moderate Muslims, those who would never dream of personally carrying out violent terroristic jihadist attacks.”
You said it — OUTWARDLY moderate muslims. You think there are any inwardly moderate muslims?
Do you think there are any that do not approve of the atrocities of their co-religionists?
If there are, let them step forward and be counted.
“.. and then turn the other cheek, again and again...”
And don’t you think that it is duly noted by our enemies?
It is all macho and well to send SEALs (God bless them) to kill Osama, but what good does that do when we let Al-Qaeda waltz across our borders and give them green cards?
Islamic Group Asks Napolitano To
Investigate Ignore Islamophobic Domestic Terrorist Trainers
The most important thing to learn in this class is not to generalize. While well over 90% of the major terrorist attacks we discuss are perpetrated by Muslims, you should not assume that a person's religion or apparent religion has any bearing on whether they may follow their call of "Allahu Akbar" and beating on the airplane's cockpit door with an overt unfriendly act.
Along those lines, for those of you heading to jobs in airport security, make sure that at least eighty percent of your TSA screening efforts are devoted to the elderly with a walker, to pre-teens who break into tears at "bad touching", and to hot coeds. You are only permitted to check one overt Muslim per day, and only if that person does not object.
CAIR does not care about the USA. It is an agency of jihad and conquest. It is both christophobe and hebrewphobe and should be investigated for those crimes.
These terrorist supporters are the best in the world at applying Alinsky’s Rule #4: Force the enemy to adhere to its own rules.
They don’t seem worried about Christianophobia in every Muslim country scarring the face of the earth.
They are going to run the same program liberals used in race baiting the public schools into the gutter and against the real enemy, whitey who is too quota successful.
Islamists will race bait the police into lowering standards of justice to go after the real terrorists - the whitey Christians.
If a phobia is typified as an IRRATIONAL fear, then suspicion of fifth columnists working in national security is perfectly understandable, especially in light of people like Nadil Hassan.
We were repeatedly told by this administration that Osama Bin Laden and those who followed him are not really muslims because they do not follow true Islam.
And then this administration orchestrated a 40 minute Isalmic funeral for Osama Bin Laden, the man they claimed was not a muslim at all.
We were told that this was not to honor Mr. Bin Laden, but rather, to placate the arab street who might have been offended about mistreatment of the “not-a-muslim”’s corpse.
This administration repeatedly LIES about the beliefs of those who mean us grave harm.
Moderate muslims are all too willing to sit by at accept the Islamic capital’s complete intolerance for any freedom of religion (those living in Saudi Arabia have no CHOICE but to be muslim). They bow to the Islamic capital (Mecca) 5 times a day, every day, and do no consider how it is a capital offense for a non-muslim to enter that segregated city. They do not contemplate about the Saudi government seizing and destroying all non-Islamic religious texts.
I want to see a rise of the REFORM muslims who are willing to tell the theocratic dictatorships “NO! Your tyrannical way of life is not permitted in this world and your claims of Islam are false!”.
Until that day, of reform muslism getting to the forefront of the discussion, we will continue to see Islamic extremists getting a pass from so-called “moderates”.
“I want to see a rise of the REFORM muslims....”
I was born a Catholic in a muslim country and spent 21 years in the ME as an engineer in the oil industry.
Reform muslim? What reform muslim?
The only ones I see are those who renounce Islam altogether and warn the West.
I hate Islam and I hate Muslims and I’m proud of that and I’ll tell any Saracen bastard the same. That said if there were anything I could do to encourage any Muslim to renounce their false god and their demon prophet and come to know the love and salvation of Jesus Christ I’d gladly help.
An irrational fear of islam?
I have a case of ISLAMOMISIA, a revulsion of ISLAM.

“CAIR Official Hypes American ‘Islamophobia’ on Iranian Television
by IPT News Jun 13, 2011 at 6:14 pm
SNIPPET: “The Iranian government is pursuing nuclear weapons, helping Syria brutally suppress anti-government uprisings and is “the most active” sponsor of terrorist groups throughout the world. And, of course, it considers the United States to be the Great Satan and a bitter enemy.
Yet American Islamists seem to have no hesitancy taking to Iran’s state-sponsored English-language media arm to bash America as inherently hostile toward Muslims. The latest to do so is Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) national spokesman Ibrahim Hooper, who appeared June 4 to argue anti-Muslim sentiment is raging in America.
“It’s really a disturbing situation where, primarily right-wing extremists are exploiting and promoting anti-Muslim sentiment for their own political gain,” Hooper said. “And I think we’re going to see more and more of it leading up to the 2012 elections.”
Last month, former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney went on PressTV to blast American and NATO operations in Libya, actions that came at the Arab League’s request.
Regardless of one’s views on debates over Sharia law or opposition to mosque construction, it’s difficult to understand what CAIR hopes to accomplish by making its case on a broadcast outlet controlled by a hostile government.”
