Administration kowtows to Islam -- again

Dana Mathewson

This will not make any of us happy, although I can't imagine any of us being all that surprised at it. "Deputy U.S. Attorney General James Cole confirmed on Wednesday that the Obama administration was pulling back all training materials used for the law enforcement and national security communities, in order to eliminate all references to Islam that some Muslim groups have claimed are offensive."

It seems that the "Islamic community" has threatened once again. "In a Wednesday Los Angeles Times op-ed, Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) president Salam al-Marayati threatened the FBI with a total cutoff of cooperation between American Muslims and law enforcement if the agency failed to revise its law enforcement training materials."

William Katz comments:
"Are we serious here? That's like having members of the Ku Klux Klan serve as advisers to the agents investigating Klan activities. That's like inviting the KGB to examine our investigation of its spying in the United States.

"This is complete madness. Our Justice Department, under Eric Holder, seems to be in its knee-jerk left-wing mode. The professional Muslim organizations should be grateful for how restrained this country has been in the years after 9-11. The demand that the government apologize to the Muslim commity is outrageous.

"I cannot imagine a Republican Justice Department buckling before these threats and demands."
