FBI Purges Anti-Islam Training Material

Categories: News, Religion

A graph contends the more devout a Muslim is, the more likely he is to be violent. An instructional document saying that in Islam, "war is the rule and peace is only temporary." The paperwork sounds like propaganda produced by Joe Kaufman or U.S. Rep. Allen West. But the documents were used to train FBI agents in counterterrorism.

Prompted by an investigation by Wired.com, the FBI this week purged hundreds of pages of similar training documents, saying they contained "factual errors," promoted stereotypes, or were in "poor taste."

And the bureau is continuing to review its training materials, with more questionable documents expected to be revealed.

For now, the training documents are a rare window into the inner workings of the federal agency that investigates and arrests terrorist suspects.

When two South Florida imams, Hafiz Khan and Izhar Khan, were charged with funding the Pakistani Taliban last year, local FBI officials made it clear the arrests were not an indictment of ordinary Muslims.

"I remind everyone that the Muslim and Arab-American members of our community should never be judged by the illegal activities of a few," said John Gillies, special agent in charge of the Bureau's Miami office.

But with training materials casting ordinary Muslims as prone to violence, the FBI seemed to contradict that message.

Khurrum Wahid, the Margate attorney representing Hafiz Khan, says there's "probably" an FBI informant in nearly every mosque in South Florida. If that's the case, what exactly are they looking for?

You've yet to see any proof probably because you're blind. I'll try to help you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T.... Mcveigh was a catholic. How come all catholics are not terrorists or pedophiles now? what about anders behring breivik in Norway? Not only was he christian, he was a Christian ANTI-ISLAM terrorist! He even took his playbook and philosophy from Islamophobe wackos like Pam Gellar and Robert Spencer, both were mentioned in his manifesto. You asked for 1 other thing - show you where the muslims are that condemn acts of terrorists. Well, its pretty much -- all of them: http://www.cair.com/americanmu...

There are exceptions of course, to this rule, as there are a few terrorists in every group; christians, jews, hindus, and muslims. The dumbest person on the planet is you

Ever wonder how the Iranians got that Drone? Ever wonder how so many CIA ''assets'' were found by the Iranians? Ever wonder why Obozo never spoke up in behalf the Iranian people when they were demostrating and dying in the streets yet found his voice for Libyans and now Syrians? Wonder no more...this administration and through out its agencies are rife with muslim-brotherhood moles. The FBI had muslim analysts standing and cheering as the planes flew into the World Trade Towers on 9/11 and to add insult to injury you've got a muslim sympathizer in the W.H. The past actions of muslims concerning terrorist act were carried out by...wait for it....muslims. No one else, no Baptists, no Catholics, no Amish, and no Mormons.American People you are truly the dumbest people on the face of this planet.

 So are you saying Timothy McVeigh is muslim too?You cannot condemn a whole religion based on the actions of a few.  If you believe that all muslims are terrorists then why don't you also say that all drunk drivers are christian?

I've yet to see ANY proof that McViegh was a ''Christian''. His religion was ''fascism'' and his goal was to payback the Feds -You know the jackbooted thugs that incinerated 80 men, women & children in Waco-and don't forget Vickie Weaver.I do not condone his actions, anymore than the ATF & Holder allowing guns to cross the mexican border which resulted in the death of 500+ mexicans dead & Brian Terry. Show me where those muslims are that don't condone the actions of muslim terrorists..you can't because they don't exist. Islam was organized by a murdering pedophile-nothing more and nothing less.

You haven't seen proof mcveigh was a christian probably because you are blind. Just do a quick wikipedia search and you would see he was a roman catholic. Anders Breivik was also not only a christian, he was a ANTI-ISLAM terrorist and a follower of loons like Pam Gellar and Robert Spencer. Muslims condemning terrorism - here you go: http://www.cair.com/americanmu....

You've made no "points," merely ranted. You've presented no facts to buttress your claims, listed no news stories supporting anything you've said, reprinted no studies exposing these "truths."

As was mentioned, Timothy McVeigh was a Christian Vet and his partner, Terry Nichols was also a Christian. So was Joseph Stack, who flew his small plane into an IRS building, which makes it a federal building.

Those attacks are documented facts. Let's see yours.
