I don’t suppose any of these sessions focused on Islamic jihad, beheadings, misogyny, Jew-hatred, forced child marriage, female genital mutilation, or sex slavery, all allowed and practiced by Muslims.
As Creeping Sharia so aptly puts it, “This type of event isn’t necessary for Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists – or any other religion. Why? Because only members of one religion are rapidly transforming U.S. towns and cities and committing acts of horrific violence in almost every country in the world. Muslims in the U.S. fully leverage their jihad-waging co-religionists to scare and subjugate non-Muslims. Muslims are the only ones who refuse to assimilate and force Western nations to accommodate their sharia practices.”
NJ.com Close to 100 township workers and emergency responders attended a symposium hosted by the West Windsor Police Department focused on learning about Islam and Muslim culture, police said.
The four-day event took place last month at the Princeton Junction Fire Department and featured daily speakers from the Institute of Islamic Studies in East Windsor, covering aspects of the Islamic religion, cultural practices and sensitivities of the Muslim community. Speakers shared insights into traditional Muslim dress, religious holidays and the meaning of Muslim prayers.
They talked about police-community relationships, and about the need to be respectful of Muslim obligations such as the wearing of the hijab, the traditional head covering for women.
“I would say I made new friends,” said Sgt. Mark Lee, who helped organize the event. “We’re building bridges of understanding.” (Only if you kiss their feet and bow to Islamic domination)
The Institute of Islamic Studies has been located on Princeton Hightstown Road in East Windsor for nearly 20 years and last year broke ground on a new mosque to be built at 2030 Old Trenton Road in West Windsor.
The Islamic Center members served as speakers, covering topics like traditional Muslim dress, the timing and meaning of Muslim prayer, religious holidays and Muslim obligations, Zafar said. “We were pleasantly surprised,” Zafar said. “It was very, very engaging and we think this could be a real model for other townships in New Jersey.”
Tahir Zafar, the institute’s board chairman, said working to build trust between police and the communities they serve helps both sides. Learning about Muslim culture, given the current political climate, is especially important, Zafar said. “Without the trust of the community, law enforcement can’t function,” Zafar said. “We all have to work together to build that trust.”
(In other words, Muslims won’t follow the laws and won’t cooperate with the police unless the police embrace their sharia culture)
