Busted - and Incredible

The US Federal Bureau of Investigation has said it has discontinued a lecture that taught counterterrorism agents that mainstream Muslims were violent.

The move comes after leaked documents revealed the controversial elements in the FBI's training manuals.

According to the FBI documents: Most American Muslims are likely to be sympathisers to "terrorist" groups like al-Qaeda.


This reads like a rationale for the worst sort of hate-mongering of the kind one sees on far-right-wing blogs, and the obscene excesses of wackos like Pamela Geller, who ascribe every sort of moral and sexual perversion to the most revered figure of one of the world’s three great Abrahamic faiths. The idea is not to win over Muslims, at home and abroad, to the anti-terrorist cause, but to insult and provoke them to higher levels of violence.

Somewhere close to the lowest rung of Hell, Osama bin Laden is smiling.


At the Bureau’s training ground in Quantico, Virginia, agents are shown a chart contending that the more “devout” a Muslim, the more likely he is to be “violent.” Those destructive tendencies cannot be reversed, an FBI instructional presentation adds: “Any war against non-believers is justified” under Muslim law; a “moderating process cannot happen if the Koran continues to be regarded as the unalterable word of Allah.”


One of these briefings, titled “Strategic Themes and Drivers in Islamic Law,” took place on March 21.


As Danger Room reported in July, the FBI’s Training Division has included anti-Islam books, and materials that claim Islam “transforms [a] country’s culture into 7th-century Arabian ways.” When Danger Room confronted the FBI with that material, an official statement issued to us claimed, “The presentation in question was a rudimentary version used for a limited time that has since been replaced.”


It may come out of the manuals, but it won't come out of the training, lecture or no. It will just be "replaced."

Look at that amazing chart they were using (click to enlarge). Notice how Judaism and Christianity have steadily reached peacefully heavenward (to merge, apparently) and Islam has turned away. Jeezus H. Krist. Incredible.
