The United States government is allowing a renowned terrorist organization that preaches radical Islamic ideology to conduct Muslim “sensitivity training” for sworn federal officers across the nation.
Earlier this year the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) led a workshop on Islam and the American Muslim community for Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and Joint Terrorism Task Force supervisory personnel in north Florida.
This week the national organization that serves as the U.S. front for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, conducted its Islamic diversity and sensitivity training at the FBI’s New Haven Connecticut office.
A few months ago a federal government agency actually published a press release authored by CAIR, which has been described by top FBI terrorism chiefs as an entity that, not only promotes terrorism, but also finances it.
Published by the Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the release said that CAIR approved of the special training that 45,000 TSA workers received about Islamic traditions related to a Mecca pilgrimage known as Hajj.
This cozy relationship between the United States government and an organization with well-documented terrorist ties may seem strange to most Americans considering what happened on September 11, 2001, not to mention the subsequent and ongoing threats to the country.
After all, a top CAIR official was sentenced to 20 years in prison for participating in a network of militant jihadists, another was convicted of bank fraud for financing a major terrorist group, a board member was a co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and a fundraiser identified by the U.S. Treasury Department for financing Al Qaida.
