by Paul Sperry

The Pentagon has agreed to formally review an anti-terror training program taught to special forces by a private contractor for material deemed offensive to Islam and Muslims, even though the Muslim group that lodged a complaint against the allegedly “Islamophobic” program has been accused by the Justice Department of supporting terrorism and is currently banned from outreach activities by the FBI.

The instructor hired to teach the program says he fears his class might not get a fair hearing, because military brass have assigned the review to a Muslim military chaplain who graduated from a radical Saudi-funded Islamic school raided by federal agents after 9/11 on suspicion of terrorist activities. He is their second choice for conducting the review. They had originally picked a more radical military chaplain to inspect the training materials before learning he has ties to an imam with a history of ministering to Muslims later convicted of terrorism.

Brass decided to launch the review after receiving a letter from the Council on American-Islamic Relations last month demanding the commander of US Air Force Special Operations sever ties with longtime counterterrorism instructor Patrick Dunleavy, claiming his lessons “contain anti-Islamic content.” CAIR, a suspected terrorist front organization, did not cite any examples of content from his “Dynamics of International Terrorism” course to support its claim.

Dunleavy formerly served as deputy inspector general of New York State prisons’ criminal intelligence division and also worked with the NYPD’s intelligence division for several years. His five-day course, which he’s taught complaint-free at the AIr Force for several years, covers homegrown terrorism and prison radicalization, which tie directly into recent ISIS cases.CAIR claims to be a “Muslim civil-rights organization,” but the feds have ID’d

CAIR and its founder as “members of the US Muslim Brotherhood,” while designating them both as “unindicted co-conspirators” in a 2008 terror-financing case involving Hamas, the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood and a US-designated terrorist group.

“From its founding by Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists,” US prosecutors charged in one court filing.

As a result, the FBI has cut off ties to CAIR until investigators “can resolve whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and Hamas.”

Air Force Special Operations commander Lt. Gen. Marshal Webb received the CAIR letter and, in turn, ordered Special Operations School commandant Lt. Col. Christopher Portele to initiate a review. It is not clear if Webb is aware of CAIR’s well-documented support of terrorists. A spokeswoman did not return calls seeking comment.

Dunleavy says top brass more than likely are in the dark about the extent of CAIR’s terrorism ties. “I’m sure they don’t have a complete knowledge of CAIR or other Muslim Brotherhood groups,” he said in an interview.

He notes that the military also has a problem vetting Islamic clergy.

Air Force chaplain Walid Habash is expected to begin reviewing slides from Dunleavy’s lesson material later this week, despite the fact that he received his Islamic education from a radical Muslim Brotherhood school in Virginia. Habash’s alma mater  the Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences, or GSISS, was raided by federal agents in 2002 as part of a post-9/11 terrorism investigation.

Habash was substituted last week for Muslim military chaplain Rafael Lantigua after Air Force brass learned of his radical associations, apparently for the first time.

It turns out that Lantigua sits on the board of directors of an Islamist group with a radical cleric who ran a New York mosque where the terrorists who plotted to bomb synagogues in the Bronx were radicalized. That 2009 case — which touches the cleric, Imam Salahuddin Muhammad — is one of Dunleavy’s presentation slides. Muhammad, a former convicted armed bank robber, was a protege of Umar.

In addition, Lantigua recently spoke at a New York Islamic conference where cop-killer Jamil Al-Amin and Luqman Abdullah, a Detroit imam killed in a shootout with the FBI, were honored. Muhammad gave the keynote address at the February event.

Once this information came to light, and questions were raised over how impartial Lantigua, who holds the rank of captain, could be regarding the subject of Islamic radicalization in the prisons, Air Force brass began a search for a new Muslim chaplain to review Dunleavy’s lesson plan.

“The military has an ongoing problem vetting their Muslim clergy,” Dunleavy told me. “Nobody wants to touch this political powder keg.”

CAIR has found success already in convincing law enforcement to alter training programs, including bleaching references to “Islam,” “Shariah,” “caliphate” and “jihad” and other allegedly offensive terms from state and federal anti-terrorist training materials. It has also pressured the sidelining of some instructors.

Emboldened, the group is now targeting military training curricula for censorship. Dunleavy is just the latest subject-matter expert targeted for a smear campaign.

He and other trainers chiefly blame “political correctness” for the capitulation to CAIR at the highest levels of government. Talking honestly about the violent nature of Islam, a minority religion, is taboo in Washington. It’s much safer for career advancement to apologize for it — even though officials know that sweeping the religious doctrines and motives behind growing Islamic terrorism under the rug won’t make them disappear. In fact, it will only lead to more attacks and more American victims.

  1. All you have to do is look back to The Muslim Brotherhood to see their plan to take over The United States which is part of their plan to take over the entire world with Islam. They have infiltrated positions in our government. Building up and at all levels during the obama administration. The following are quotes from the official document from a 1991 meeting which outlines the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic goals for North America. The document was entered as evidence in the 2008 Holyland Terror Funding Trial. Federal investigators found the document in the home of Ismael Elbarasse, a founder of the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, during a 2004 search. Elbarasse was a member of the Palestine Committee, which the Muslim Brotherhood had created to support Hamas in the United States.
    Page 4 of 18: “Enablement of Islam in North America, meaning: establishing an effective and a stable Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood which adopts Muslims’ causes domestically and globally, and which works to expand the observant Muslim base, aims at unifying and directing Muslims’ efforts, presents Islam as a civilization alternative, and supports the global Islamic State wherever it is.”
    Page 5 of 18: “…the Movement must plan and struggle to obtain “the keys” and the tools of this process in carry out [sic] this grand mission as a ‘Civilization Jihadist’ responsibility.”
    Page 7 of 18: “The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers…”
    “[W]e must possess a mastery of the art of ‘coalitions’, the art of ‘absorption’ and the principles of ‘cooperation.’”
    Page 18 of 18: “A list of our organizations and the organizations of our friends” – This is where the Muslim Brotherhood listed its front groups in the U.S.. Note that prominent organizations like CAIR, ISNA, ICNA and others are named here.

    • Thanks Tyedyed it’s heartening to see there are a few of that understands what’s going on, I subscribe to Jihad Watch but cant post on there, I have to wonder what’s going on, it’s always something, my user name is wrong” my password is wrong’ someone else has this password” and on and on I cant find a way to contact those who run the site, maybe this is why there are so few posts someone is deliberately blocking them.

  2. As far as I’m concerned, this puts the Air Force brass in cahoots with the Muslim Brotherhood in the attempted conquest of the world by Islam. Time for President Trump to make some heads roll and replace all of Obama’s spies in our military.

  3. The Brotherhood has succeeded to infiltrate every country’s government. The one with the biggest influence is Turkey. Erdogan is one of the biggest MB supporters and he makes the four fingered Rabaa sign at every public event to prove it. Obama didn’t start this. It goes back to the 80’s when the CIA conscripted Mohamed Morsi while he was at university in SoCal. The only reason Trump hasn’t slapped the ban on them is he and the rest of the government is scared if they do there will be mass chaos and bloodshed like Egypt suffered after kicking Morsi out of office and jailing all the top Brotherhood brass most of whom have been given the death sentence. There is no way to figure out who is with the group or not. They are sneaking their agendas into the madrassas and mosque schools. If Trump doesn’t act now it will be too late and they will finally get what they have always wanted. Christians, Jews and every other non-Muslim religion will be forced to pay deference. Pork will be banned and women will be forced to cover like in Iran. This may sound extreme but it’s exactly what was planned for. If you’re wondering who caused the bombing of the churches in Egypt the Brotherhood was behind it. They support and invented every terrorist group in the Middle East.

  4. DAMNIT! When will Mr. President Trump get serious about the Islamisation of our Nation? He knows full well CAIR, ISNA etc are MB organisations. WHAT THE HECK is a Muslim advising any government entity and especially a Muslim who dresses like those in the photo?

  5. Our leaders are all worthless. The American people will have to unite and fight this tyranny. Yes a civil war is coming. Every person involved in these treacherous dealings needs to be hung. Constitutionalists only be must in office. Enough already.

  6. Did anybody hear Pres. Trump read “The Snake” during his 100-day rally in Harrisburg? I’m sure the moral of the poem can be applied in multiple situations of treason, but here’s one of them for sure! With all of the WELL-DOCUMENTED islamic hatred of America, we should NEVER allow this CANCER to be taught in our military! Islam is not just a snake in the grass–it’s a DOCTRINE OF DEMONS from the PIT OF HELL!!!!!

    • @wellborn. Heard it Live at the Rally. I was just above the large flag on the right side behind him. I could read the Teleprompter and that wasn’t part of his original presentation. He pulled that out of his jacket and read it off the paper. I was reading along because all the clapping and cheering made it difficult to hear everything at times. The President’s remakes were all very good and on point with everything that has been going on.
      Great story that sounds like an adaptation of the old Scorpion and frog story. First time I heard this one though. The followers of Islam have shown for over 1400 years that they act exactly like the Snake as President Trump described. As shown throughout History since the 7th Century, they claim they are persecuted until they have enough people to attack. Any and every country that has allowed Muslims following Islam in has experienced these issues. Over and over again. Sad but true and coming to a town near you. Not all Muslims are bad or Terrorists, but almost all Terrorists are Muslims. It comes from the fact that Islam is more than just a Religion than all of the supporters claim but a Total way of life that when followed always leads to a small percentage of followers to attack others because of their 7th Century lifestyle.

    • You’re correct if Satan started a religion he couldn’t have done a better job than Islam, he hates Christians and Jews and Muslims hates Christians and Jews or at least their Qur’an and Hadiths command them to hate. BTW a historian who was an Arab wrote that Muhammad believed the entity that he met who furnished him with information was Satan or one of his agents but Muhammad’s wife and family convinced him it was an angel from God, Muhammad was definitely right about that. Muhammad’s Allah is 180 degrees different than the God of the Bible, Muhammad’s Allah was among 350 pagan idols of wood and stone, Muhammad chose one and called it Allah, what an evil fool.

      • Muslims are highly political and they will support Sharia Law making them dangerous to our Republic and even more so are the many well funded alphabet Muslim organizations who know how to court our corrupt politicians to do their bidding and to make things even worse is the “Interfaith Movement” that are bringing Muslims here to all states and supporting them, then there are millions of brain-dead Liberals all over America who are bowing to them but openly mock Christians.

      • To ‘harpertwo’. I’ve heard that mohammed expressed doubts about his visions of the “angel”. Clearly the vision was demonic. I didn’t know his family had convinced him that the “vision” was from God. If I’m not mistaken, mohammed records the entire incident in one of his books, including the part where he expresses his fears that he had just had a vision of the devil! YES, he was definitely right about that!!!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
