US Justice: Security Less Important than Pleasing Islamic Organizations

This is just great.  Deputy U.S. Attorney General James Cole just announced that all training materials used by law enforcement and national security agencies are being recalled so that censors can remove any references that might be offensive to Muslims.  Who gets to decide what may or may not be offensive to Muslims?  The Council on American Islamic Relations, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, and others - all of which are tied to the Muslim Brotherhood according to documents that came to light at the Holyland Foundation terrorist fundraising trial. 

The decision is apparently due, at least in part, to a threat by MPAC president, Salam al-Marayati, who warned that, unless the US government revised its materials, there would be a disintegration of "the crucial partnership between the Muslim American community and law enforcement..."   One has to wonder how that would differ from what we have today.  Sharia law forbids Muslims from turning each other over to un-Islamic authorities, even if they are guilty of a crime.  This goes a long way toward explaining why there has never been any such thing as US Muslim cooperation with law enforcement, and why there never can be.  Actual investigators and street-level law enforcement agents I've spoken to know this to be the case, despite the laughable claim cited by al-Marayati that, "Nearly 40% of Al Qaeda-related plots threatening the American homeland since 9/11 have been foiled thanks to tips from Muslims."

While professional grievance mongers like al-Maryati insist that the materials in question are insulting to Muslims and infringe on their religious freedoms, they ignore the fact that those materials go out of their way to differentiate between Islam and Islamists, and to mark the distinctions between the religion of Islam, which is a matter of personal rights, and the legal, social, political system of Islam, which is an entirely different matter.  In allowing those distinctions to be ignored, the Justice Department smears the designers of those materials and handicaps the people who put their lives on the line to provide for domestic security. 

Short of actually placing weapons in the hands of criminals (That's a different Justice Department program.) it's hard to imagine a more effective way of undermining our national security.

The mere existence of the Constitution is offensive to old-line sharia muslims. Let's expunge any references then to US laws...

Moderns rather dig the Constitution, but their voice isn't the one considered by USJ - and they are subject to fatwa and death by the old-liners when they speak up.

The day the old-line sharia types insist upon religious freedoms and economic and societal Liberty for Christians and Jews and Hindus and Buddhists in the ME, that's the day I'll take seriously their concern for their own "religious" freedoms here in the US and abroad.
