The U.S. Department of Justice is becoming a wing of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Obama administration is bowing to Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups and stopping the use of all training materials for law enforcement and national security officials that refer to jihad and any and all references to Islam. Yet Anwar al-Awlaki was a devout imam who preached the Quran. So let me understand this: Obama executed Awlaki for preaching jihad. That was all he did. Awlaki did not kill anyone. And yet Obama orders law enforcement to drop all mention of jihad and the Islamic motivation of terrorists. What’s the difference?
Why did he kill Awlaki?
The Justice Department held a seminar last week on “Confronting Discrimination in the Post 9-11 Era.” Among the treacherous conspirators indoctrinating believers and non-believers was the notorious Jew-hating pollster James Zogby and the ghastly leader of the Muslim Brotherhood-tied Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), Mohammed Magid.
James Lafferty, a board member of my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), was there and reported: “Speaker after speaker recited anecdote after anecdote which demonstrated that, except for the Justice Department, law enforcement is conspiring with ‘bigoted’ Americans to suspend the First Amendment protections of religious expression and free speech.”
The DOJ promised to fight that “bigotry” by changing training materials designed to help law enforcement officials understand the jihad threat. Dwight Holton, the U.S. attorney in Oregon, said: “I want to be perfectly clear about this: Training materials that portray Islam as a religion of violence or with a tendency toward violence are wrong, they are offensive, and they are contrary to everything that this president, this attorney general and Department of Justice stands for. They will not be tolerated.”
The only ones really responsible for the idea that Islam is “a religion of violence or with a tendency toward violence” are the Muslims who act violently and justify their violence by quoting the Quran. That isn’t “bigotry.” It’s the truth.
