Uncle Sam Conducts Another “Anti-Islamic” Purge

Stealth surrender. War on Terror over. War on American citizens rages on. Of course what needs to happen is a purge of Islamists from any and all leadership positions in the U.S. who push these efforts (and possibly pay for them). Diana West has much more on yesterday’s post. Full story via The Death of the Grown-Up | Uncle Sam Conducts Another “Anti-Islamic” Purge.

It’s probably fair to call Spencer Ackerman of Wired.com the king of the see-no-Islam beat. Whenever the government — first, the FBI, now, “the entire US military” — decides to purge training materials about Islam that undermine the Big Lie that “Islam is a religion of peace,” Ackerman seems to be the one to break the story. Something to be proud of in the coming caliphate — probably good for a pasha-ship, at least.

The latest from the Voice of Submission:

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on Tuesday ordered the entire U.S. military to scour its training material to ensure it doesn’t contain anti-Islamic content, Danger Room has learned. The order came after the Pentagon suspended a course for senior officers that was found to contain derogatory material about Islam.

Guess what? Any course about Islam that is not a fanciful whitewash is going to contain derogatory material about Islam because Islam is based on principles such as supremacism and censorship, not to mention practices such as polygamy, slavery and killing apostates, all of which free people consider reprehensible — hence “derogatory.”

But was the “derogatory” material in the course factual? (I am currently awaiting a response from the public affairs officer at the staff college where said course was taught.)

The extraordinary order by General Martin Dempsey, the highest-ranking military officer in the U.S. armed forces, was prompted by content in a course titled “Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism” that was presented as an elective at the Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, Virginia. The course instructed captains, commanders, lieutenant colonels and colonels from across all four armed services that “Islam had already declared war on the West,” said Lt. Gen. George Flynn, Dempsey’s deputy for training and education.

“It was inflammatory,” Flynn told Danger Room on Tuesday. “We said, ‘Wait a second, that’s really not what we’re talking about.’ That is not how we view this problem or the challenges we have in the world today.”

The strong response by the Pentagon brass illustrates growing sensitivity around the issue since Danger Room’s investigation of anti-Islam material in the FBI’s counterterrorism training last September. That story sparked strong condemnation of the training material from the U.S. Attorney General on down, and prompted the White House to order a review of U.S. counterterrorism training last October [links in the original].

Despite that White House order, the “Perspectives” course, taught since 2004, not only evaded review, but had defenders in the Joint Forces Staff College that taught it.

Danger Room first learned about the course last month, and determined that one of its guest lecturers was Stephen Coughlin, who has taught FBI and U.S. Army audiences that Islamic law is a danger to U.S. national security. We sought comment from a representative for the Joint Forces Staff College, who defended the propriety of the course [link in the original].

Stephen Coughlin delivers impeccably sourced briefs on jihad (“enemy threat doctrine”) based on facts, sacred texts and law books, all as codifed by the most authoritative Islamic sources. I know: I’ve heard his briefs on multiple occasions.

Feedback from students has been “mostly positive, usually around the 90% range,” Steven Williams, a spokesman for the college, e-mailed Danger Room on Mar. 14. “Students generally appreciate thought-provoking discussion and the freedom to consider critical perspectives.”

The Pentagon, though, told a very different story Tuesday. Flynn disclosed that since an unspecified “revision” of the course in the summer of 2011, multiple officers who attended the course had raised internal objections about its presentation of Islam and Muslims. He estimated that about 20 officers attend each eight-week elective course, which is offered four times a year.

Flynn said he heard about the objectionable material on Friday after a colonel enrolled in the course complained about the anti-Islam lessons. “We looked at it and we found the material to be objectionable and we started digging into it to see, how did the course get this way?” Flynn said.

Objectionable, obshmectionable — is the material true? Is the enemy threat doctrine relevant to training senior staff officers charged with defending the country against it? Oops, I forgot — “the war on terror” (whatever that was) is over.

The course was scheduled to hold its second weekly meeting of the semester on Wednesday. But class will not be in session.

It all sounds a little like Heidelberg University in the 1930s, where a lot of classes were not in session once senior Nazi officials closed them (and their Jewish professors) down, after which Nazis threw what they considered to be “objectionable material” on a bonfire on May 17, 1933. Or maybe it sounds more like classrooms in the Soviet Union when, after the new encyclopedia (whitewash) of Soviet history came out around 1940 or so, all conflicting (read: factual) study materials (and conflicting teachers) were also purged.

Flynn has appointed a two-star general to spend the next 30 days investigating how the course came to include anti-Islam material in apparent contravention of the White House directive.

Can’t wait to read that. Does it start with the birth of Mohammed?

Accordingly, Dempsey has issued a letter to the chiefs of all four military services and the leaders of the military’s regional commands to make extra-sure that their own educational and training materials “are consistent with our values,” said Brig. Gen. Richard Gross, Dempsey’s senior legal adviser.

“Possibly, we did not follow the procedures we should have followed in academically approving the course, but that’ll be formally determined when we complete the inquiry into this,” Flynn said.

Last month, Williams, at the Joint Forces Staff College, assured Danger Room that the course followed the White House-approved guidelines issued by the Department of Homeland Security (.pdf) to prevent anti-Islam material from being taught by the U.S. government. He described the class as including “the basic tenets of Islam; the context in which it was founded; the life of the Prophet Mohammed; Islam’s early development; the practice of Islam in various countries; the foundations and principles of terrorism; the roots of Islamic militancy, and a broad overview of various Islamic radical groups and their philosophies” [links in the original].

But although the course material is unclassified, Williams would not disclose it to Danger Room. Flynn spoke more candidly about the material on Tuesday.

“We have an elective that did not meet the educational standards or the values of our JPME enterprise, so we’re going to suspend the course,” Flynn said Tuesday, using the acronym for joint professional military education. He added that his inquiry will determine whether “academically, did it go through the academic review process to make this truly an accredited course we should be teaching.”

Flynn’s inquiry will examine the chain of command to determine how the inappropriate material got into a course taught to senior military leaders. Flynn said there was as yet no indication that the anti-Islam instructions had disseminated beyond the Joint Forces Staff College, but the various inquiries will have to determine that.

“We’ll take whatever action is warranted,” Flynn said.

  1. Just proves that the President, in disguise, is a CLOSET MUSLIM and
    is behind the fostering of this CRAP in destroying the MORAL of our troops and lowering the will to fight the MUSLIMJ BROTHER HOOD AND C A I R. This PHONEY in the White House has to be removed now, but BOEHENER HAS NO GUTS FOR THE TASK. Time to remove him and McConnel also. WAKE UP AMERICA!!! LOCK AND LOAD.

    • omega islam is a peaceful religion nd it is also a religion dat stands with rule of which when u break de rules it has to defend itself nd de followers of islam are de weapons jst America uses its solidiers to defend de country is de way islam uses muslims to defend itself

      • Islam and Muslims are not peaceful and big news flash- WE DO NOT HAVE TO FOLLOW MUSLIMS LAWS b/c we are not MUSLIMS- defend? from what a cartoon? a movie? is your god that weak and pathetic? is your belief so shaky you cannot take a joke or a TV show or any critique?

        ISLAM mean submission and we don’t submit- you did not conquer us. ISLAM by definition considers itself at war with US- according to Islam we are dar el Harb- house of war- you wanted this war and now you got it- it is WE who are defending ourselves FROM ISLAM- we never considered you as enemy – YOU ATTACK US, our ways, our people for you ALLAh, and then have audacity to say we should follow your crappy system? no thanks. Our system says you can live any stupid way you please up and until you TREAD ON OTHERS. We don’t kill you b/c you are Muslims we are not attacking your religion, we don;t have a state faith- up and until Muslims came here to agitate and dominate —-all other faiths here had no problems co-existing, b/c none of the others make demands on other people, or insist on dominating, and ruling.

        NO you got 57 places to practice ISLAM that you describe and USA is not one of them

  2. OMG! This is so bad that i’m really starting to regret my recent three year National Guard re-enlistment. How can anybody be expected to have any level of confidence in leadership so compromised by political correctness as to lose all objectivity.

    This is a failure of enormous magnitude, and a complete, total abrogation of the Armed Forces’ responsibility to defend our nation and Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic.

    Not only is this repugnant and reprehensible, it is downright treasonous!

    • Visit the Oath Keepers site. The active military needs to see it. Thank you for your service and devotion to our beloved and beleaguered Constitution.

    As his message to the saudis said, “look at what I will do!. –Obama.. Osama or Obama. They are functionally the same.

  4. From the looks of it the US military, FBI and CIA have checked out of the still ongoing war of terror. When the call for open Jihad comes against America it is going to be up to the beer-swilling, TV football watching sportsmen and the independent militias to defend this country. Hell, they might even have to engage the regular military who would be fighting to enforce any anti-sharia “Mischief”.

  5. The best way to show the true essence of Islam is to broadcast Muhammad’s atrocities as documented in the Quran, Sira (biography of Muhammad) and the Hadith (sayings of Muhammad). For example, the most detailed translation of his biography is called The Life of Muhammad: A Translation of Imam Ibn Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul Allah. This translation of his biography was written by Alfred Guilliame, who converted to Islam. His biography documents many atrocities he committed. For example, on page 451 Mohammad’s conquest of the village of Qurayza in 627 A. D. and beheading of all the helpless male prisoners (over 600 men) after they had surrendered completely because they did not want to become Muslims and submit to Muhammad as the greatest prophet. Muhammad then ordered making all the females and children slaves and divided among his army. This violated his earlier revelation that “There shall be no compulsion in religion”. However, he had already replaced that revelation with a more vicious one, Sura 9, verse 29.The Koran contains peaceful “revelatio¬ns” but also vicious contradict¬ory ones. It is not written in chronologi¬cal order of alleged revelation¬s, however, the biography of Mohammad is written in chronologi¬cal order and documents how his later evil “revelatio¬ns” and actions overrode his earlier peaceful revelation¬s. Muslim clerics reconcile the contradict¬ory “revelatio¬ns” by examining the actions of the ‘prophet’. His biography and other corroborat¬ing biographic¬al writings (the Hadith) document how he said Allah approved this transforma¬tion.. Imam Bukhari in a respected Hadith also documents the Qurayza horrors in Volume 5 citation V5B59N632. Also see Quran at 33rd Surah (or Chapter) verse 26. These atrocities were in accordance with Muhammad’s final and overriding revelation¬s that all crimes are permissibl¬e against non-Muslim¬s because Islam must conquer the entire world. The violent final revelation¬s override and replace the earlier revelation¬s.The Alleged Prophet Mohammad told his warriors before a battle that he had a “revelation” that if his warriors died in battle for Islam then they would go to Paradise & get many virgins (not sure where 72 came
    from). He told them his other “revelation” that if they did not die it was approved by Allah to rape the captive women (Koran, Sura 24 Verse 33). He even told them essentially was a win win situation for them. Sadly many men joined him after this “revelation”.after 9/11, I started studying why they attacked us and what to do about it. I found that it was just like Osama and other Muslim terrorists kept telling us: that Allah (through Mohammad) told them to do this to non-Muslims. And this is why they attack the Jews, Israel, US, Europe, Christians, almost go to nuclear war against India, even attack the Budhaists, e.g., assasinations of Buddahist leaders in Thailand. They even can’t get along with Budahists! Many scholars have published many books and websites about the viciousness of Mohammad’s final binding “revelations” that overrode and replaced his previous peaceful revelations, e.g., Prophet of Doom by Craig Winn (free at Prophetofdoom.net), the Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam by Robert Spencer, answering-islam.org.
    The Quran
    This is the core of the religion. Fifty percent of the 1.6 Billion muslims must know this and be either Jihadists or sympathetic to the Jihadists.  Ten percent of the 1.6 Billion must be Jihadists.  I think other estimates are too low because Muhammad was a genocidal sex maniac and anybody that reads the Quran or his biography or the other biographical writings (Hadith) must realize this.  Also look at all the Islamic countries with savage and unreasonable laws which the population support.  Look at how savage was the reaction of the Islamic world to some cartoons of Muhammad and how they killed people that had nothing to do with the cartoons. It was just an excuse to act out their hate that is incarnated into Islam. mohammad was the only prophet that had alleged revelations and actual actions that were as evil as the ones that occurred during the later period of his life (after 622 A.D.) also known as 622 Common Era. He was 52 years old and the revelations and actions became progressively worse until he died in 632 A.D. These evil revelations were the final and overriding revelations that set Islam indisputably as a religion of evil when Mohammad died and their were no more alleged revelations possible.
    . Jesus, Buddha, Zoroastarians, Bahais, and the Jains never advocated or committed atrocities like this. Islam is NOT a religion of peace. It is a violation of the separation of church and state for the U. S. Government to keep telling us it is. It is unconstitutional, illegal and treason for U. S. Government Officials to repeatedly tell us that Islam is a religion of peace. The consitituitions of Iraq and Afghanistan are also illegal because they state that Islam is the supreme religion.

    • Four months prior to his death muhammud ( he doesn’t rate upper case ), made arrangements to marry another child. The innocent contracted would be five years old at the time of the selected date of the marriage. One year younger than his first child bride. Guess Ayisha was way too long in the tooth for muhammud. At eighteen she was ready to be put out to pasture.Sick,scum. No hell is hot enough for allah’s sociopathic apostle.

    • How true, “TruthisStrong”. Uncovering the essential nature of Islam is a continung must if Islamic totalitarianism is to be defeated, not sanatizing the corruption and very real danger. I re-posted (tweeted) this page for others. Probably the best uncovering of Islam is to be found in “Jihad Watch” with the best philosophic analysis of totalitarian Islam found in the Ayn Rand Center’s selected works on the subject. Others, like yourselves also do incredible work in keeping watch on new encroachments for others to become aware of.

      Due to America’s non-war “war on terrorism” North America is left in greater danger than ever. The enemies will to fight has not even been touched, let alone annhiliated.

      Here’s where Americans will be after a few years of this sanitizing of totalitarian Islam. After 9/11,I had heard Muslims at my work (in Toronto) denigrating America as “the greatest terrorists in the world”, “Your a terrorist because you side with America”, “If Osama was here, I’d give him money.” Needless to say I agrued with these idiots and wouldn’t let up. One Muslim had even told me he was thinking to go from work here to Saskatchewan (Praries) then sneak back into America to go to Texas. At my work, this fellow had “tested doors” to see which could be opened without setting off alarms. (Of course I reported all of this to security). It came to a final point when I was being yelled at, I said to the idiot, “If I was any lesser of a man, I’d take you outside and bust your nose!” It ended the conversation, but…

      The idiot reported me to Human Resources, a company investigation followed and I was demoted for inflaming the situation! I had simply stood my ground and would not compromise with this murderous religion.

      As I was officially demoted, I understood then, the biggest danger was not Islamic totalitarianism for ordinary citizens can see the rot in it. The greatest danger was the rubber hose from the live victims, that feeds this vampire and keeps it alive. The Multicultural and Diversity programs are where Creeping Sharia is fed – and the enemy knows it.

      Academics, professionals and political leaders hold to the human rights principles (and protect tribal collectivism) like a religion. The entire United Nations is built on it. If creeping Sharia is to be stopped, it is objective individual rights (i.e. America’s constitution that has to be upheld in opposition to groupism.
