Bravo. “Military officer files formal complaint against Islamist censors,” by Jim Kouri for the Examiner, February 17:
A top United States counterterrorism expert, who taught a course that familiarized military officers with the U.S. war against radical Islamists was fired from a military college and had his course removed from the curriculum, is retaliating against university officials, according to a U.S. police counterterrorism expert on Thursday.
The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Mich., reportedly filed a formal complaint with the President of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (Commission) challenging the accreditation of the National Defense University (NDU) on behalf of Lt. Col. Matthew A. Dooley (U.S. Army) .
The police source, Sean Hanrahan, told the Law Enforcement Examiner that the officer/instructor was informed the course materials would be revamped to exclude references to Islam and use terms such as extremists or militants. In addition, the course instructor, Lt. Col. Dooley, was removed from the faculty permanently for telling students that practitioners of Islam are responsible for terrorism.
“One can only wonder how much protection students who practice Catholicism and Christianity would receive from this Administration and its media sycophants — such as TV host Bill Maher — when they verbally attack Christians,” said former police commander and military officer Mike Snopes.
According to a source, the National Defense University’s Joint Forces Staff College course included a slide-show that told students — mostly battle-hardened officers — that the U.S. is fighting a life and death battle with Islamists and that “we need to recognize that the U.S. and its allies are at war with Islam.”
JFSC educates military officers and other national security leaders in joint, multinational, and interagency operational-level planning and warfare, counterterrorism and other subjects.
According to the Law Enforcement Examiner source, it’s believed a complaining soldier, whose identity is being protected, may be a pawn of some of the Muslim groups such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) or Muslim Advocates, who are currently suing the New York City Police Department for its training and police tactics.
“This politically correct nonsense would be laughed at if we had a reality check now and then. On the one hand, the majority of terrorist attacks worldwide are perpetrated by radical Muslims who actually apply the teachings of the Koran. Anyone who studies the history of Islam, especially within the last two hundred years will discover what America faces is not new,” said Hanrahan.
“The CAIR group is considered by some to be a front-group for radical Islamists — several of whom are currently in prison or deported — and frequently supports certain Democratic politicians who do their bidding. Rep. John Conyers of Michigan is a perfect example,” Hanrahan alleges.
Counterterrorism experts condemned by CAIR include Walid Phares, Robert Spencer, Bill Getz, Pam Geller and others who “refuse to sugarcoat the Islamic terrorism threat,” said Mike Snopes.
