Skip to comments.CAIR Enraged by ROTC Exercise Featuring Jihadis as Enemies

A ridiculous article last Thursday in UCLAs student newspaper, The Daily Bruin, reveals the mindset of those who believe that Islamophobia is a bigger threat than jihad terror, and reveals yet again the insidious agenda of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
It takes a lot of work to marginalize 3.5 million Americans at once, writes the articles author, Omar Said, but the ROTC did just that when it stereotyped Muslims to portray enemy combatants.
Who are American troops facing in Afghanistan? Methodists?
During a training held by UCLAs and California State University, Fresnos Army ROTCs in early April, students acting as enemy soldiers in combat simulations wore clothing commonly worn by civilians in Arab countries. The clothing included kufiyyas and iqals, which are better known as the flowing scarves Arab men traditionally wear on their heads.
It might seem incongruous and wrong for the enemy combatants in the exercise to be dressed as civilians, until one recalls that the Taliban, al-Qaeda, and the rest dont usually march out in full uniform. Also, they often base their activity in civilian areas in order to claim that U.S. strikes hit non-combatants so that they might win points in the ongoing propaganda war.
In any case, the civilian dress was not the only aspect of this exercise that enraged Said. He noted:
At one point in the training, Maj. Tyrone Vargas, the executive officer of the battalion and a UCLA assistant adjunct professor of military science, held a rocket-propelled grenade above his head and said Allahu akbar in the presence of cadets.

CAIR is enraged? Good.
enraged muslim isn’t that like wet water?
Isn’t this common in Army boot camp training today?
Fair is the enemy
I think the Moslem pressure groups have been able to have most all references to Islam removed from military training manuals and courses, especially during the Obama years.
So why hasn’t the FBI raided terrorist training camps here in the US??
... maybe the ROTC wanted the training to seem realistic. Beyond posturing, isnt armed conflict with jihadi realistic? And, given the number of incidents which have occurred, including thousands of innocent deaths, there is ample evidence a professional could recognize & use to create a realistic simulation ...
Actually, it is CAIR who has stereotyped 3.5 million (sic) American Muslims as terrorists.
Hmmm... Exactly why does CAIR believe that fighting jihadists means that large numbers of American Muslims are also terrorists? Could it be that they might "know something"?
The ROTC needs to conduct live fire exercises...Could just hire some ragheads off of the welfare rolls...
It only makes sense to use as enemies those who actually are our enemies.
