Amid protests from a Muslim civil liberties group, local police training officials have called off an anti-terrorism course for officers scheduled for Monday in Lombard that was to have been taught by an instructor the group regards as anti-Muslim.
The class was canceled after the agency head in charge of police training in statewide, North East Multi-Regional Training, investigated.
Here comes CAIR to the rescue once again. Let’s not tell the truth about them, but make them sound like nice, little people who do nothing to hurt anyone. CAIR is a real nuisance suing anyone they think speaks without nothing but good things to say about the Muslims.
The Chicago chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations had called for the cancellation of the class, “Islamic Awareness as a Counter-Terrorist Strategy,” arguing instructor Sam Kharoba is unqualified to teach about Islam and depicts it as violent.
“Counter-terrorism training is too important to be left to those who promote a bigoted political or religious agenda,” CAIR-Chicago Executive Director Ahmed Rehab said in a news release.
CAIR believes a more credible person should do the training and understands more about Islam and the issues.
Kharoba could not be reached for comment. This is not the first controversy to erupt around the instructor.
Brankin said he had examined Kharoba’s work and believed his conclusions to be based on credible research, even if CAIR finds his message offensive.
Bankin claimed once the state agency examined the findings, he believed the training is based on good research.
