DOJ, DHS Film Instructs Law Enforcement to Obey Sharia Gender Discrimination
by David Stein
"The First Three to Five Seconds: Arab and Muslim Cultural Awareness for Law Enforcement" is an outrageous example of the U.S. government appeasing the very worst elements of Islam, even at the expense of our own laws and values. This training film not only instructs law enforcement officers to obey Sharia gender rules when conducting investigations, it's also a flagrant piece of pro-Islamic propaganda that presents Muslim gender discrimination as proof of Islam's "strong connection to God."
"The First Three to Five Seconds" was initially developed by the Department of Justice, and it's now used by both the DOJ and the Department of Homeland Security to train all of their law enforcement personnel. "The First Three to Five Seconds" is described on the DHS website as a film that "introduces law enforcement officers to basic principles of the Arab American and Muslim American cultures." However, the DHS description hardly does this instructional film justice.
To begin with, there is the outright pro-Islam propaganda. Naturally, all religions see their tenets and customs in a positive light. But it's not the job of the United States government, in a taxpayer-funded film, to produce religious propaganda which claims that one particular religion's tenets and customs somehow make that faith "closer to God."
