Skip to comments.FBI teaches new recruits to read 'anti-Islam' books
Posted on 07/28/2011 9:01:24 AM PDT by markomalley
The FBI taught new recruits about Muslims with a power point presentation that recommended they read books criticised as sharply prejudiced against Islam.
A slide show used by the bureau for training new agents told them that Islam transforms [a] countrys culture into seventh century Arabian ways and is hard for westerners to understand. It said that Muslims were swayed more by ideas than facts.
The 62-page document, which was released under freedom of information laws, was designed to help agents perform successful interviews/interrogations with individuals from the Middle East.
It told new agents as recently as 2009 that Muslims engage in a circumcision ritual. One slide asked Is Iran an Arab country? before telling students that it was not.
It also said that agents should understand that the Arabic mind was swayed more by words than ideas and more by ideas than facts.
The document concluded with a recommended reading list of eight books, which included The Complete Idiots Guide to Understanding Islam.
Also among the list was The truth about Muhammad Founder of the Worlds Most Intolerant Religion, by Robert Spencer, an author who runs the jihadwatch.com blog.

Nice to know that the FBI has a clue!!
I like “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam”;)
so it is bringing the 7th century to the 21st century world.
sound like environwackos.
...and this is a problem in what way???
The [FBI]said that Spencers book was no longer recommended to new recruits but said: We encourage our agents to seek out a variety of viewpoints.
Someone please tell Khera that I find murdering 3000 innocent civilians and hacking off the heads of nuns and other Christians offensive. Still, the FBI caved in...again...to political correctness and removed the reading list. Personally, I think Australia has it right: You don't like what we do here, don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.
Good I hope they are also teaching those agents that Islam is not a religion, its a political ideology.
File this under the NSS folder. (No $hit Sherlock)
Liberals only know how to govern by ideas, not by facts. It's why Islam is so appealing to them, If it wasn't for the stoning and beatings, they would pay to convert.
This discription also fits your average Libtard to a "T"!
“It said that Muslims were swayed more by ideas than facts.
DAMN! That’s why Obozo, Holder and the rest of this “progressive” gaggle want ‘em here: THEY’RE LIBERAL DEMOCRATS!!!!
More than a clue. Looks like the klownie the kenyan will probably stop these shenanigans and have them undergo sensitivity training...
Me too. I liked all the PIG books I have read.
I don’t believe the article for one moment.
But if it is true....
Then I am glad to see that SOME sanity remains among those tasked to enforce our laws.
Me, too - and it’s been ridiculed by some Air Force JAGs trying to make us more “tolerant”. I was very tempted to ask the guy presenting if he’d actually read it, but I outranked him and it wouldn’t have been appropriate in that mix of people. I did, however, say, “it’s actually quite a good book”. Got a very shocked look.
No wonder liberals love them.
Don’t let Obama find out, they will be reading pro-Islam propaganda.
You need a good SNCO for a dogrobber. He can say those kinds of things and get away with it. ;)
I've long suspected that liberals, homosexuals, and atheists are pushing non-Christian immigration as a way to break down the Christian standards of our country.
All the trainees need to do is listen to some mid east state sponsored English broadcasts to learn the truth about Islam.
Programs like “The Koran!” and “Great Men of Islam” reveal more unintentionally than you would expect in western anti-Islamic propganda.
LOL - Unfortunately, I didn’t have an exec at the time. Now I do - a major who would probably do an excellent job of ‘splaining the concept!
Islam is a religion that is a political ideology.
Islam is a political ideology that is a religion.
Either statement is true.
How is this a bad question to ask in a quiz?
I meet many people do don't know that Iran is not an Arab country.
I would postulate that Islam is not a religion as it does not have a higher purpose as do all other major religions.
