(CAIR) - Council on American-Islamic Relations said that military facility, referred to as a "kill house," features a number of combat scenarios, including a mosque and a movable target of a Muslim woman wearing hijab and aiming a handgun. Verses from the Quran, Islam's revealed text, are also displayed behind the target.
"Using a Muslim woman wearing a religious head scarf with [verses from the] Quran behind her as a target for our nation's military personnel is offensive and sends a negative and counterproductive message to trainees and to the Muslim-majority nations to which they may be deployed,"
For whatever reason, it slipped my mind until fairly late last night. I was just about to post the press release with some commentary when I discovered the Navy had already capitulated to the Jihadists' demand.
(Pilot Online) - The Navy will not use a target depicting a Muslim woman holding a gun at a new training range for SEALs in Virginia Beach.
The announcement came hours after the Council on American-Islamic Relations asked the Pentagon to remove the target. A picture of the cardboard target, which shows a woman in a headscarf holding a pistol, was published in The Virginian-Pilot on Tuesday. The image shows verses of the Quran hanging on the wall behind the woman, which also generated criticism from the group.
Nihad Awad, executive director of the Washington-based council, said in the letter to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta dated Friday that the target "is offensive and sends a negative and counterproductive message to trainees and to the Muslim-majority nations to which they may be deployed."
Panetta's press office did not respond to a request for comment. Late Friday, Lt. David Lloyd, a spokesman for Naval Special Warfare Group 2, said the materials in question would not be used on the close quarters combat training range, which was dedicated Monday at Joint Expeditionary Base Fort Story.
"We have removed this particular target and Arabic writing in question from the range in the near term, and will explore other options for future training," Lloyd said.
I was so frustrated by what I had read that I immediately began work on a response to what can only be described as a national security disaster. At first, I was so aggravated that I could not sleep. But, by the time I found everything and finished the first draft of the video below (5am), sleep deprivation had exhausted my aggravation-fueled resolve and initially limitless energy.
When I woke up not enough hours later, I was greeted by the infuriating headline CAIR Welcomes Navy Decision to Remove Target of Muslim Woman, Quran and press release from CAIR in which they officially announced success in their Jihad to undermine America's ability to recognize and defeat the enemy.
(CAIR) - "We welcome the Navy's prompt action to address community concerns and hope this incident serves as a reminder that credible scholars and experts need to be consulted when designing training materials relating to Islam and Muslims for our nation's military personnel," said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad.
"This is a welcome first step, but a serious and comprehensive review is needed to deal with the issue of Islamophobia in military training."
Americans have got to wake up and start doing something about the war being waged against us that our government refuses to acknowledge. People need to take it upon themselves to loudly encourage their elected representatives repeatedly until this kind of suicidal insanity is brought to an end.
Consider,I mean really think about "what" happened. Within hours of CAIR's public display of faux-outrage at a manufactured grievance, the Navy submitted. Within hours? Many in the government require that much time to put on clothes and tie their shoes. Seriously, that's lightening speed for the government to react to anything - and their reaction was to appease known enemies of America. If that doesn't bother you in a very significant way, then you are brain dead (or a sharia-compliant Muslim).
It really doesn't get much worse than a bunch of Muslims (who should be tried for sedition and treason) possessing the political force necessary to control the educational materials, classroom instruction, and combat training facilities used by the FBI and military. The insane amount of leverage over the situation that our belligerent government has bestowed upon the enemies of America exposes (yet again) the total breakdown that has occurred within US national security.
The fact of the matter is our national security apparatus has been completely compromised by the subversive operations of Muslim Brotherhood front groups and Islamist operatives embedded at some of the highest levels in the government and national security. That's not a point for any legitimate contention or debate. And it's made painfully obvious when Muslims hell bent on destroying the nation are able to undermine a SEAL training facility built to simulate real life scenarios based on actual combat situations encountered by the military.
This CAIR victory alone is bad enough, but really it's just a drop in the Jihad-bucket. Just in recent weeks and months, in addition to successfully purging FBI terror training materials of any facts demonstrating the indisputable correlation between Islam, Jihad and Muslim terrorism, CAIR has helped take down a military instructor, launched an iJihad against Apple, and perpetrated dozens of reported attacks against American interests (and presumably a great deal more that have gone unreported).
I'm not sure how the severity of current national security crisis can be made anymore clear. Wake up, America!
