The legal jihadists are at it again. These Muslim suits don’t have the courage to wage physical jihad and they certainly don’t have the courage to debate Muhammad’s life of terror.
Law enforcement officials across Florida have been repeatedly exposed to training on Muslim extremism “full of inaccuracies, sweeping generalizations and stereotypes,” a complaint filed Wednesday claims.
The classes have maligned the Prophet Muhammad and promulgated mistruths about Islam, according to the Council on American-Islamic Relations and a number of mosques and smaller Muslim organizations.
“It’s troubling, un-American and frankly, quite possibly illegal training,” said Hassan Shibly of CAIR, which focused its criticisms squarely on one man, Sam Kharoba, who has led a variety of classes for police through his Counter Terrorism Operations Center. “It makes us less safe and less free.”
Kharoba called the claims “manufactured distractions” and said his training “is based on historical facts found in the most respected and authentic Islamic religious texts.”
“CTOC challenges these critics to a public debate to find any factual flaws with our training material,” he wrote in an e-mail to The Associated Press.
Under a public records request, CAIR said it found Kharoba held at least 21 separate trainings for state law enforcement agencies since 2005, some of them sanctioned by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. They say he uses a training manual that says “Muhammad lived a diabolical life” and that Osama bin Laden “did not hijack or twist Islam.”
CAIR also points to an article last year in Washington Monthly in which Kharoba is quoted telling an audience “When I look at the life of Muhammad, I get a very nasty image … I am talking about a pedophile, a serial killer, a rapist.”
And what’s the problem? If it’s not true debate it out. The Son of Hamas agrees Muhammad was a terrorist. Would love to see that debate.
In a statement released after that article was published, Kharoba said the writers “hand-selected a few statements without context to slander law enforcement trainers.” He says he makes clear that “not all Muslims are radical.”
Kharoba said Wednesday that about 100 Muslim officers have been among the 20,000 officers who took the training and that none complained about the material.
The Muslim groups called for FDLE to end its relationship with Kharoba in news conferences in Tampa and Pembroke Pines on Wednesday.
All Americans should call for CAIR to be prosecuted.
