Islamists Pressure FBI to Drop Training on Muslim Brotherhood
A political alliance of 75 organizations led by Islamist supporters has published a letter demanding the removal of "anti-Muslim" material from FBI training. This purported objective is incontestable, but the thinly concealed objective is to end instruction about the Muslim Brotherhood in America.
The letter refers to legitimately offensive instances of anti-Muslim content in FBI documents, specifically a 2005 memo that used the fake name of "Mohammed Raghead." Derogatory language has no place in governmental instruction.
However, this legitimate example of inappropriate teaching is conflated with examples of appropriate teaching that makes Islamists uncomfortable. It is another application of the "Islamophobia" strategy that has been used by Islamists for decades.
