The FBI is teaching its counterterrorism agents that “main stream” [sic] American Muslims are likely to be terrorist sympathizers; that the Prophet Mohammed was a “cult leader”; and that the Islamic practice of giving charity is no more than a “funding mechanism for combat.”
At the Bureau’s training ground in Quantico, Virginia, agents are shown a chart contending that the more “devout” a Muslim, the more likely he is to be “violent.”
-They engage in a “circumcision ritual”
-More than 9,000 of them are in the U.S. military
-Their religion “transforms [a] country’s culture into 7th-century Arabian ways.”
What's with the star on that graph?
I seriously doubt that represents fundamentalist pagans. What would they get in trouble for "stockpiling crystals and herbs?"
DT 6:14 Do not follow other gods, the gods of the peoples around you; 15 for the LORD your God, who is among you, is a jealous God and his anger will burn against you, and he will destroy you from the face of the land.
DT 13:12 If you hear it said about one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you to live in 13 that wicked men have arisen among you and have led the people of their town astray, saying, "Let us go and worship other gods" (gods you have not known), 14 then you must inquire, probe and investigate it thoroughly. And if it is true and it has been proved that this detestable thing has been done among you, 15 you must certainly put to the sword all who live in that town. Destroy it completely, both its people and its livestock. 16 Gather all the plunder of the town into the middle of the public square and completely burn the town and all its plunder as a whole burnt offering to the LORD your God.
The tradition of Prophet Muhammad in giving charity was not to fund war, but to uplift the poor. Sorry that they didn't study the basics of Islam.
The chief of the Training Division, Assistant FBI Director Thomas Browne, came into his current job in January. His official biography lists no terrorism expertise beyond serving as a coordinator for a bureau “Domestic Terrorism Program” in Tennessee sometime in the last decade.
. . .
Several of these briefings were the work of a single author: an FBI intelligence analyst named William Gawthrop.
At the time, Gawthrop’s major suggestion for waging the war on terrorism was to attack what he called “soft spots” in Islamic faith that might “induce a deteriorating cascade effect upon the target.” That is, to discredit Islam itself and cause Muslims to abandon their religion.
. . .
Back then, however, Gawthrop didn’t work for the FBI. He had recently stepped down from a position with the Defense Department’s Counterintelligence Field Activity. That agency came under withering criticism during the Bush administration for keeping a database about threats to military bases that included reports on peaceful antiwar protesters and dovish Church groups. It is unclear how Gawthrop came to work for the FBI.
Unfortunately for the dumb ass FBI, the method of giving charity, as it is SUPPOSED to be done, is to actually FIND a poor person, and give them either money, or food. This modern day "pay through an organization" such as ISNA or MAS is just hustlenomics at its best.
Well, when the religion in question is islam it does...
You consider that recent? So, the 9/11 attacks must have been yesterday in your world? Islam is not like other religions. It is a death cult that guarantees a theocracy when it's adherents follow it to the letter. You think Christians don't treat you nice? Go live in an islamic country and practice your "alternative religion" there.

That FBI chart under discussion sure doesn't take this fairly recent history into consideration.
You consider that recent?
"This war did not spring up on our land, this war was brought upon us by the children of the Great Father who came to take our land without a price, and who, in our land, do a great many evil things... This war has come from robbery - from the stealing of our land."

Was it not muslim-extremists that collided some airliners into WTC 1 & 2?
All of the evidence points towards this being true even though it's unwelcome news to some.
ISNA STATEMENT OF POSITION: WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE BELIEVE
ISNA has always maintained an open, collaborative working relationship with government at all levels, and was very disturbed in May when the Department of Justice named ISNA on a list of “unindicted co-conspirators” in the federal terrorism prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development. ISNA has engaged legal counsel to protect its rights and maintain its organizational integrity and credibility by immediate removal of ISNA from this list. We understand that ISNA is not a target in this prosecution or any pending investigation, and that the listing of ISNA was not to imply that ISNA was part of a criminal conspiracy or that it acted with any criminal intent, but rather, it was a legal tactic to permit the government to seek the admission of evidence that would otherwise be excluded. ISNA is confident that its name will be removed from the list so that the organization’s reputation is cleared.
Testimony and evidence
It was claimed during the 2007 trial that the Justice Department fabricated quotes and modified transcripts. Critics faulted much of the evidence given during the trial. The New York Times journalist Leslie Eaton said Israeli agents using pseudonyms testified for the prosecution. The government did not allege that the foundation paid directly for suicide bombings, but instead that the foundation supported terrorism by sending more than $12 million to charitable groups, known as zakat committees, which build hospitals and feed the poor. The prosecution said the committees were controlled by Hamas, and contributed to terrorism by helping Hamas spread its ideology and recruit supporters. Some of these charitable committees were still receiving US funding through the USAID programme as late as 2006.
