This gets filed under “Just What the Hell are these people thinking?” The Police department in Columbus Ohio are doing some diversity training called “Islam and Muslims: What Law Enforcement Personnel Should Know” Even if you believe that is a noble gesture, who they used to TEACH the course is just DUMB. The Columbus Police is using CAIR.

CAIR was an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Terror trial case and one key piece of evidence was the Wiretap evidence heard in the case put CAIR’s executive director, Nihad Awad, at a Philadelphia meeting of Hamas leaders secretly recorded by the FBI. Participants hatched a plot to deceive Americans and disguise payments to Hamas as it launched a campaign of terror attacks. CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad joined Hamas big shots at the summit. In other words, THEY BROKE THE THE LAW. Why is the Columbus Police using unrepentant lawbreakers, who are co-conspiritors with terrorists to train their officers?

At least CAIR is happy about it…below is their press release bragging about their Role in Columbus Ohio (H/T Dhimmi Watch):

(COLUMBUS, OH, 11/24/08) – Representatives of the Columbus chapter of CAIR-Ohio, along with a Muslim law enforcement officer, recently conducted diversity training on “Islam and
Muslims: What Law Enforcement Personnel Should Know” at the Columbus Police Training Academy.
Topics covered included the basic beliefs and practices of Islam, practical advice to help future law enforcement personnel develop cultural competency when interacting with the Muslim community, and a section on cultural awareness about the Somali community, as Columbus is home to one of the largest populations of Somali refugees in the United States. This is the 5th year that CAIR-Ohio has conducted the training.
“We welcome the opportunity to improve understanding and cooperation between Law Enforcement officials and the Muslim community,” said Dr. Asma Mobin-Uddin, president of CAIR-Ohio. “Educational sessions like the ones we have been participating in for the past five years help law enforcement personnel appreciate the needs and concerns of the members of the diverse communities they serve.”
CAIR, America’s largest Islamic civil liberties group, has 35 offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
