Controverse anti-islamique. Following months of denials, the FBI is now promising a “comprehensive review of all training and reference materials” after Danger Room revealed a series of Bureau presentations that tarred average Muslims as “radical” and “violent.” But untangling the Islamophobic thread woven into the FBI’s counterterrorism training culture won’t be easy. In addition to inflammatory seminars which likened Islam to the Death Star and Mohammed to a “cult leader,” Danger Room has obtained more material showing just how wide the anti-Islam meme has spread throughout the Bureau.

The FBI library at Quantico currently stacks books from authors who claim that “Islam and democracy are totally incompatible.” The Bureau’s private intranet recently featured presentations that claimed to demonstrate the “inherently violent nature of Islam,” according to multiple sources. The FBI declined to respond directly to such questions from Danger Room. Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6 View All. Controverse sur rites islamiques. As recently as January 2009, the FBI thought its agents ought to know the following crucial information about Muslims: They engage in a “circumcision ritual”More than 9,000 of them are in the U.S. militaryTheir religion “transforms [a] country’s culture into 7th-century Arabian ways.”

And this was what the FBI considered “recommended reading” about Islam: All this is revealed in a PowerPoint presentation by the FBI’s Law Enforcement Communications Unit (.pdf), which trains new Bureau recruits.

The briefing presents much information that has nothing to do with crime and everything to do with constitutionally-protected religious practice and social behavior, such as estimating the number of mosques in America and listing the states with the largest Muslim populations. One slide asks, “Is Iran an Arab country?” Photo: newmanchu/Flickr. Controverse West-Point et Islam. Controverse modélisation agonale.

Controverse armée_croyance. Source: Danger Room, Wired.com Le plus haut gradé de l'armée américaine, le chef d'état-major interarmées Martin Dempsey, a vivement condamné mercredi l'enseignement d'un professeur du département de la défense, qui prônait "la guerre totale contre l'islam". Ce cours facultatif de huit semaines, dispensé depuis 2010 à des officiers par un professeur du collège interarmées de Norfolk, en Virginie, considérait en détail la possibilité d'atomiser les villes saintes de La Mecque et de Médine, à la façon "d'Hiroshima". "C'était absolument insupportable, contraire à nos valeurs et ça n'était pas défendable du point de vue académique" a déclaré, jeudi au Pentagone, le général Martin Dempsey.

L'officier a précisé que le lieutenant colonel Matthew Dooley, qui dispensait ce cours, n'était désormais "plus en position d'enseigner". Il reste pour l'heure maintenu au collège interarmées. Une enquête interne doit être achevée à la fin du mois. Selon M. Signaler ce contenu comme inapproprié. Controverse terrorisme croyance. The FBI has publicly declared that its counterterrorism training seminars linking “mainstream” Muslims to terrorists was a “one time only” affair that began and ended in April 2011. But two months later, the Bureau employee who delivered those controversial briefings gave a similar lecture to a gathering of dozens of law enforcement officials at an FBI-sponsored public-private partnership in New York City.

And during that June presentation, the FBI’s William Gawthrop told his audience that the fight against al-Qaida is a “waste,” compared to the threat presented by the ideology of Islam itself. “At the operational level, you have groups such as Hamas, Hezbollah, al-Qaida. Like teeth in a shark, it is irrelevant if you take one group out,” Gawthrop said during his lecture to the New York Metro Infragard at the World Financial Center in downtown Manhattan.

This June 8 lecture is controversial in a different way. “We should be looking at, should be aiming at, these,” Gawthrop said. Controverse guerre totale et Islam. The U.S. military taught its future leaders that a “total war” against the world’s 1.4 billion Muslims would be necessary to protect America from Islamic terrorists, according to documents obtained by Danger Room. Among the options considered for that conflict: using the lessons of “Hiroshima” to wipe out whole cities at once, targeting the “civilian population wherever necessary.” The course, first reported by Danger Room last month and held at the Defense Department’s Joint Forces Staff College, has since been canceled by the Pentagon brass. It’s only now, however, that the details of the class have come to light. Danger Room received hundreds of pages of course material and reference documents from a source familiar with the contents of the class.

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff recently ordered the entire U.S. military to scour its training material to make sure it doesn’t contain similarly hateful material, a process that is still ongoing. Pages: 1 2 3 View All.
