CAIR troublemakers on a witch hunt to cleanse every government office of its counter-terrorism trainers

Hassan Shibly of CAIR (Council on Anti-American Islamic Relations) has been in the BNI news several times before, most recently for his attempts to infiltrate Tampa public schools to teach students Islamic propaganda. Having been outed and stopped on that one, now he moves on to trying to defame, discredit and thereby ban counter-terrorism expert, Sam Kharoba, from training law enforcement officers in Florida.

CAIR thugs are enraged that law enforcement officials across Florida have been repeatedly exposed to training on Muslim extremism  by a highly-respected counter-terrorism expert, Sam Kharoba, Jordanian by birth. CAIR says, the classes have maligned the Prophet Muhammad and promulgated mistruths about Islam. 

“It’s troubling, un-American and frankly, quite possibly illegal training,” said Hassan Shibly of CAIR, which focused its criticisms squarely on one man, Sam Kharoba, of the Counter Terrorism Training & Resources for Law Enforcement Center, who has led a variety of classes for police through his Counter Terrorism Operations Center. “It makes us less safe and less free.”

Kharoba called the claims “manufactured distractions” and said his training “is based on historical facts found in the most respected and authentic Islamic religious texts.”

Florida Family  The Council on American Islamic Relations wrote a letter  calling on the Florida Department on Law Enforcement and other officials to stop allowing terrorist expert Sam Kharoba from training their officers.

Hassan Shibly, executive director of CAIR in Tampa said. “He (Kharoba) encourages law enforcement officers to view Muslims with distrust. His training materials encourage law enforcement officers to profile and target Muslims.” CAIR’s letter to these officials claims that Kharoba’s training manual says Islam favors war, not peace, and says countries with a 99-percent Muslim population are “ultimate Jihad-manufacturing societies.”

Sam Kharoba’s response about CAIR

Hassan Shibly, CAIR Florida, apologist for jihadists

Hassan Shibly granted legitimacy to Hizballah following the 2006 Israel-Lebanon War by characterizing it as a “resistance movement” that provides valued social services to the Lebanese people. “They’re absolutely not a terrorist organization,” Shibly said, and “any war against them is illegitimate.”

In his Facebook page, Shibly defended a radical imam killed by the FBI after he opened fire on agents moving in to arrest him. In an October 2009 post, Shibly questioned the use of force against Imam Luqman Abdullah even though the criminal complaint against him made it clear Abdullah advocated violent jihad and urged followers never to surrender peacefully to authorities.

Shibly’s online profile also features American-born Islamic cleric Khalid Yasin as an “Interest.” Yasin is known for his controversial views, including a 2005 interview in which he says that Muslims cannot be friends with non-Muslims; that suicide bombings are understandable; and that the U.S. orchestrated 9/11 to wage a war against Islam. “There’s no such thing as a Muslim having a non-Muslim friend,” he said. “If you prefer the clothing of the kafirs [disbelievers] over the clothing of the Muslims, most of those names that’s on most of those clothings is (sic) faggots, homosexuals and lesbians.”  Yasin goes further, encouraging children to take up the “honor” of throwing stones and confronting Israeli soldiers when there are no more men left to do it.

Shibly opposed government detention of suspected terrorists.  Hassan Shibly said during a Muslim Street Radio program that he strongly opposes the National Defense Authorization Act because the provisions in Title X, Subtitle D, entitled “Counter-Terrorism” allow detention of persons the government suspects of involvement in terrorism.  Click here to see this interview on Youtube. report Government records show that Hassan Shibly of Tampa, Fla., has been pulled aside at airports for secondary screening at least 20 times since 2004.” 

Hassan Shibly at the age of 17 or 18 was detained with several others at the Canadian border while returning from the “Reviving Islamic Spirit” conference in Toronto.  Click here to read news report in The Washington Post. 

We hope that you will take the time to read our report regarding CAIR Florida Director Hassan Shibly who is fighting against counter terrorist professionals that want to protect American citizens from radical Islamists. This article reports Hassan Shibly’s erroneous complaint, Sam Kharoba’s response, Hassan Shibly’s two encounters with US Department of Homeland Security and Hassan Shibly’s Jihad apologetics.

Florida Family Association sent out an email alert on July 16, 2012 that urged patriots to send emails to Florida Governor Rick Scott, FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey and staff to counter Hassan Shibly’s (CAIR Florida Director) demand that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and other officials stop allowing counter terrorist expert Sam Kharoba from training their officers.

Hassan Shibly posted another lie about Sam Kharoba in his quest to cut off the valuable public safety service that the Counter Terrorism Operations Center (CTOC) provides all citizens by educating Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Florida Sheriff Officers. Hassan Shibly falsely claimed that Sam Kharoba was the subject of an EEOC complaint involving Muslim stereotyping and personal bias.

Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send that encourages Florida Governor Rick Scott and Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey to disregard CAIR’s unsubstantiated and misguided criticism of Sam Kharoba and to continue to embrace the valuable public safety service that the Counter Terrorism Operations Center (CTOC) provides all citizens.

Sam Kharoba and CTOC training provide valuable public service that helps to protect our safety.  

Email content:

Please disregard the Council on American Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) demand to stop allowing terrorist expert Sam Kharoba with Counter Terrorism Operations Center (CTOC) from training law enforcement officials and investigators.  

Duke University research reports during the ten years that followed 911 “Almost 200 Muslim-Americans have been involved in violent plots of terrorism over this decade, and more than 400 Muslim-Americans have been indicted or convicted for supporting terrorism.”

It was the training that law enforcement received from experts like Sam Kharoba with the Counter Terrorism Operations Center (CTOC) that saved many American lives from the Muslim-Americans involved in these jihadist plots.

If CAIR really desires good Islamic Relations with all Americans you would think that they would want highly skilled terrorist experts like Sam Kharoba to help law enforcement agencies to route out radical Muslims.

Please disregard CAIR’s unsubstantiated and misguided criticism of Sam Kharoba.  Also, please continue to embrace the valuable public safety service that the Counter Terrorism Operations Center (CTOC) provides for all citizens.

Thank you.
