Stop the presses! Nihad Awad, head of the unindicted co-conspiratorial, Muslim Brotherhood-front organization the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR), is inveighing against “Islamophobia” in the US government and the military. Hardly new. But this time Awad offered his standard hallucinogenic twaddle on a Hamas-run television station.1 His CAIR doppelganger, Ibrahim Hooper, gave a similar pitch on Iran’s Press TV, covering both Sunni and Shia Islamo-fascist bases. And these are the same men who daily trumpet CAIR’s American patriotism.
The ever-imaginative Awad suggested the onus of Norwegian nut case’s shooting spree could be placed on – you guessed it – anti-Muslim Western conservatives. But brace yourself for what comes next. “As a consequence, Awad asked President Obama to stop U.S. intelligence agencies from allowing right-wing ideologues to "train" political and military leaders about Islam.”2 You read it right.
Earth to Awad, “right-wing ideologues,” read men and women with the chutzpah to tell the truth about Islamism, are as common as unicorns grazing in the Pentagon’s E Ring. Mr. Awad, what “right-wing training” are you talking about? Let me make this offer to you in writing. Show me any unclassified, unapologetic, comprehensive training program produced by the Department of Defense or any intelligence agency3 that brings to light Takiyaa, or Islamic lying; the vast extent of the Islamic Brotherhood infiltration in the US, which includes your organization; a dozen or so of the Koran’s juicier “off with their heads” verses and assorted blood-lusting hadiths; or the pedophiliac inclinations of your prophet and I will send CAIR a check for $1,000. Show me any such program in the US Army and I’ll double my offer. You have until the end of Ramadan to make your case.4
But like unicorns and Himalayan Bigfeet, such programs exist only in myths. They are the stuff of dreams. You have nothing to fear these days, Mr. Awad, of any comprehensive anti-Islamist security measures anywhere in the government that CAIR might find objectionable. You’ve certainly nothing to worry from the Pentagon’s four-star castrati who trip over themselves to ensure that the military’s chaplaincy is a comfort zone for Islamists such as Abdurman Alamoudi . This is because they fear CAIR and other Islamist front organizations and will not fight you. And I have no fears of sending your organization one dollar because there are no substantive, broadbase training programs that you can cite to refute my claim. But I wish you could prove me wrong. And, while we’re at it, I can dream that one day the US military will begin to take seriously the threat of Islamism in the ranks and expose the likes of you. And dream I do, sir. Dream I do.

3 This does not include the FBI, which has a first-rate analyst on the subject of Islamism and whose superiors in the Bureau have given his some latitude in presenting his message.
4 Robert Spencer occasionally speaks to military audiences and bravo for that. My offer refers to a US government produced, delivered, and updated briefing that identifies the Islamist enemy and proposes countermeasures. There are annual, testable briefings on white slavery that Department of the Army personnel are required to pass. While not trivializing white slavery, it occurs to this Department of the Army employee that Islamism is a far greater threat to the force.
