Justice Department Official: Muslim 'Juries' Threaten 'Our Values'
by Spencer Ackerman
FBI intelligence analysts weren't the only ones teaching their colleagues that the U.S. is at war with the Islamic religion. Justice Department officials — and even teachers at the Army's top intellectual center — are delivering similar messages.
Danger Room has acquired a 2010 PowerPoint presentation compiled by an intelligence analyst working for the U.S. Attorney in the Middle District of Pennsylvania. Reminiscent of FBI training materials exposed by Danger Room in September, the PowerPoint warns of a "Civilizational Jihad" stretching back from the dawn of Islam and waged today in the U.S. by "civilians, juries, lawyers, media, academia and charities" who threaten "our values." The goal of that war: "Replacement of American Judeo-Christian and Western liberal social, political and religious foundations by Islam."
When Danger Room questioned the Justice Department about the briefing, it issued a statement pledging to join the FBI in scrubbing its counterterrorism training for signs of material that equate average Muslims with terrorists.
