Some Muslims are outraged about NYPD counter-terror training course that included what they call an anti-Islam “horror” film. ‘The Third Jihad’ is a widely acclaimed documentary produced by Dr. Zudhi Jasser, a patriotic American and former U.S. Naval officer, who also happens to be a Muslim.
Terrorist Front Group CAIR is frothing at the mouth over this film, as is the liberal shill for Islam who authored this article.
I have posted several excerpts of the film here:
VILLAGE VOICE —(Tom Robbins) –– “Our nation’s battle against terrorism is only made more difficult whenever security officers are taught to view all Muslims, and the faith of Islam itself, with suspicion,” said Council on American-Islamic Relations-(CAIR) New York Board President Zead Ramadan. “We call on Commissioner Kelly to order an internal probe of how this propaganda film came to be used and to put policies in place to ensure that NYPD training is not biased by agenda-driven materials — or trainers — targeting any religious or minority community.”
Ramadan said he has asked for a meeting with NYPD officials to find out how cops came to view “The Third Jihad” — a blood-splattered 72-minute feature
suggesting that even moderate Muslims are engaged in a conspiracy to put America under radical Islamic rule. The Voice asked police officials the same question after a cop complained that he and others undergoing anti-terror training were made to sit through the film this month at a police training facility in Coney Island.
This is an interesting segment about CAIR
The bad news was that it was a spectacularly offensive smear of American Muslims. (Only if you think the truth about Islam offensive) The film is called The Third Jihad. It is 72 minutes of gruesome footage of bombing carnage, frenzied crowds, burning American flags, flaming churches, and seething mullahs.
All of this is sandwiched between a collection of somber talking heads informing us that, while we were sleeping, the international Islamist Jihad that wrought these horrors has set up shop here and is quietly going about its deadly business.(Yes they are, as CAIR and other Muslim groups have demonstrated) This is the final drive in a 1,400-year-old bid for Muslim world domination, we’re informed. And while we may think there are some perfectly reasonable Muslim leaders and organizations here in the U.S., that is just more sucker bait sent our way.
“Americans are being told that most of the mainstream Muslim groups are moderate,” says the narrator, “when in fact if you look a little closer you’ll see a very different reality. One of their primary tactics is deception.” (Yes, it’s called ‘taqiyya’)
The message here is that lurking behind those veils and prayer caps is a secret plan to impose a religious order out of the Dark Ages here in the U.S. The favorite image in The Third Jihad—shown over and over—is an enormous black-and-white Islamic flag flying over the White House.
This is pretty toxic stuff, the kind of film likely to spark a picket line at a local theater. (But only with Muslims and liberals) In this case, however, the impact is somewhat more sinister, since the audience was law enforcement officers attending a mandatory prep session on what to know about the terrorist threat.
“After it was over, I was thinking, ‘What was that?’ ” said a cop who saw the movie at a training facility used by the department in Coney Island. “It was so ridiculously one-sided. It just made Muslims look like the enemy.” (Well, Duh, they ARE!)
As it happens, police officials agree that this is a “wacky movie,” as deputy commissioner Paul Browne said, that never should have been shown to officers. Browne initially insisted that cops had never seen the flick. “It was reviewed and found to be inappropriate,” he said. Further checking revealed that the movie had been aired for officers. It was a mistake, Browne said. “It was not approved for the curriculum. It’s not shown for any purpose now.” (AKA Cover Your Ass)
Browne said his information is that The Third Jihad was shown only “a couple of times when officers were filling out paperwork before the actual coursework began.” The cop who spoke to theVoice said it was a bit more formal than that: “The instructor introduced it with a warning that some people found it offensive,” he said (Only Muslims and liberals).
As for how many police officers saw it, leaders at the New York office of CAIR—the Council on American-Islamic Relations and one of the movie’s primary targets—say they got their own complaint last summer from a police cadet who was also shown the movie. (Must be one of the Muslim plants CAIR likes to put in government to spy for them)
Zead Ramadan, president of CAIR’s New York board, said he raised the matter with police commissioner Ray Kelly when he saw him at a Gracie Mansion celebration of Eid, the Muslim holy day. “I told him we’d had this report about a disturbing movie being shown to police officers. The commissioner seemed concerned, but said he knew nothing about it, that a consultant company handled that part of the training. I said, ‘You should review who your consultants are because this is potentially damaging to the city.’ (No, allowing Hamas-supporting filth from CAIR to tell the NYPD what to do is what is damaging to the city)
As it happens, Kelly is one of those seen interviewed in The Third Jihad, although he appears to be there just so movie makers can invoke his name and authority. “Our nightmare scenario is nuclear detonation,” Kelly says in the film, “and second rung down from that, you might say, is a dirty bomb.” Browne thinks this footage was scraped from another source, though producers claim in their promo material that they interviewed him.
Also appearing alongside clips of Glenn Beck are former Homeland Security chief Tom Ridge and ex–Clinton CIA director James Woolsey. They merely state that there are indeed bad people out there intending us harm. On the other hand, the movie’s DVD version gets a full-throated endorsement from another of its stars, Rudy Giuliani, who calls it “a wake-up call for America.”
The movie is the product of a nonprofit company called the Clarion Fund, whose chief business appears to be stoking the flames of religious war. (No, more like preventing a religious war) Just before the 2008 presidential election, the fund sent copies of Obsession, an earlier film also depicting murderous Muslim conspiracies afoot in the U.S., to some 28 million swing-state voters. No one has ever confirmed who footed the bill for this mass mailing, but Clarion’s tax filings show that sugar-daddies unknown anted up $18 million to do so. (Ewww, the leftie called them “sugar daddies.” Must be thinking there’s a right wing George Soros)
