Holders Bans Profiling Islamic Terrorists by Religion

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

A lot of profiling restrictions are stupid, but in this case religion is the motivation. Banning profiling of perpetrators by their motives is a sure way of crippling investigations.

This is what I predicted was going to happen and I’m surprised it took this long. If terrorists can’t be profiled by religion, then preventing attacks becomes incredibly difficult.

The Justice Department will significantly expand its definition of racial profiling to prohibit federal agents from considering religion, national origin, gender and sexual orientation in their investigations, a government official said Wednesday.

The Bush administration banned profiling in 2003, but with two caveats: It did not apply to national security cases, and it covered only race, not religion, ancestry or other factors.

Since taking office, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. has been under pressure from Democrats in Congress to eliminate those provisions.

It is not clear whether Mr. Holder also intends to make the rules apply to national security investigations, which would further respond to complaints from Muslim groups.

“Adding religion and national origin is huge,” said Linda Sarsour, advocacy director for the National Network for Arab American Communities. “But if they don’t close the national security loophole, then it’s really irrelevant.”

The Justice Department has been reviewing the rules for several years and has not publicly signaled how it might change them. Mr. Holder disclosed his plans in a meeting on Wednesday with Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York, according to an official briefed on the meeting who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the conversation was private.

Bloomberg, as bad as he was, might have objected, but Bill de Blasio is on the same page as Holder when it comes to empowering terrorists.

    Actually, I believe that the FBI adopted similar restrictions in a document known as The Touchstone memo earlier during this most disastrous of all American administrations.

  • kasandra

    This earlier document was formally known as: “The FBI’s Guiding Principles
    Touchstone Document on Training 2012″

  • kasandra

    Don’t know where my earlier comment went but in case the moderator deleted it for some reason, this actually has been FBI policy since 2012 as articulated in “The Touchstone Memo.”

    Note that the President of the United States is a Muslim (manqué) who promised in a speech in Cairo to defend Islam, and has banned mention of Islam (or jihad) from FBI manuals. See Michelle Bachmann on the penetration of the Muslim Brotherhood into the government e.g., the aide to Hillary Clinton when she was Secretary of State was Huma Abedin, of a Muslim Brotherhood family, (a half-brother of Obama is a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Kenya, and Obama himself supports the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt). President Obama has renamed the Fort Hood massacre by Major Hasan, who called out “Allahu Akbar” as he shot 12 soldiers, “workplace violence” instead of what it was, Muslim jihad terrorism.
    And what of the Muslim violence at the Boston Marathon by the two brothers from Chechen?

    • BS77

      God help us….protect us from this crazy PC liberal agenda……we know for a fact the 9/11 hijackers, the Ft. Hood shooter, the Boston bombers, the underwear bomber etc etc ALL shared the two catagories…religious belief and foreign national origin….but let’s look elsewhere…grannies from Iowa for instance……

        the “PC” stuff is just a manipulation method for the masses. it does its propaganda from the universities & media. in your face 24/7, yr after yr. it creates choas, as well as makes people follow humbly. seems to have worked well. interesting to note, the book inducing PC language was released right before the 1st ammesty.

    • Well Done

      Quite a few people are unaware the Chechen brothers were Moslem. Or Chechnyan, for that matter.

      • laura r

        they were members of a mosque in boston.

      Manqué is a term used in reference to a person who has failed to live up to a specific expectation or ambition

      In French manqué is sometimes applied to someone who has failed to gain professional status

      Obama vs Alice Palmer

      “Following Reynolds’ conviction and resignation from the U.S. House in August 1995, a special election primary was set for November 1995 to replace Reynolds. In September 1995, Palmer supporters held a press conference asking other announced and rumored candidates to drop out to allow Palmer to run in the special primary without opposition.

      On September 19, 1995, Barack Obama formally announced his candidacy for the state Senate, with Palmer introducing and endorsing Obama as her successor, according to multiple accounts. According to The New Yorker, Palmer’s endorsement “brought with it two organizational assets: local operators and local activists”.

      On November 28, 1995, after finishing a distant third behind Jesse Jackson, Jr. in the primary to replace Reynolds, a disappointed Palmer remarked that she still would not seek re-election to the state Senate. However, Palmer changed her mind and filed nominating petitions with 1,580 signatures on December 18, 1995—the last day for filing.That day Obama told the Chicago Tribune, “I am disappointed that she’s decided to go back on her word to me”.

      In early January 1996, Obama challenged Palmer’s hastily gathered petitions and those of the three other prospective Democratic candidates. Nearly two-thirds of the signatures on Palmer’s petitions were found to be invalid, leaving her almost 200 signatures short of the required 757 signatures of registered voters residing in the Illinois Senate district.

      None of the other three prospective candidates had the required number of valid signatures. As a result Obama, who had filed nominating petitions with over 3,000 signatures on the first filing day, appeared alone on the ballot for the March 16 Democratic primary. For all intents and purposes, this assured him of election in this heavily Democratic district. He easily defeated the Republican and Harold Washington Party candidates in the November general election. In a 2007 interview with the Chicago Tribune, Obama said that the challenges were justified by obvious flaws in the signature sheets”

      well said. that sums it up. what is strange is humas husband is an isreal supporter. what is that about??

  • SoCalMike

    This has been official policy since 2009 when Obama and Holder scrubbed the key words from national security and LE documents and materials.
    The result was the Boston Massacre bombing.
    That’s why the FBI closed the case on the 2 terrorists even though both the Saudis and Russians warned us about them.
    But they never get blamed for getting people killed.

    • Well Done

      That would explain why a judge actually went to the surviving Boston Bomber’s hospital room to read him his rights. Up until then he was telling us all about it. WHO would want him to shut up?

      • laura r

        another good observation. OR is the evidence considered invalid if the person has not been read their rights?

      • Irish1025

        We ALL know who. We don’t need mention his name BHO.

  • Drakken

    You really have to give these folks credit, they actually believe the nonsense they are peddling to the general public. I can’t wait for the explanation as to the motivations of the next Islamic attack. Sooner or later the people will figure out that the govt is covering up the Islamic attacks and take matters into their own hands to protect their own, much to the chagrin and horror of our govt officials.

    • laura r

      it has been said that 60% of the US population belives the govt knew about 9/11, & or were part of it.

  • RESIST

    What would Obama and Holder have done?
    United Nations General Assembly Resolution 46/86 adopted on December 16, 1991, revoked Resolution 3379, which had called Zionism a form of racism. Israel had made revocation of Resolution 3379 a condition of its participation in the Madrid Peace Conference, in progress in the last quarter of 1991.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      The UN should be banned because it has been hijacked and co-opted by the Islamic world and the Islamic world is not just the enemy of Israel but also the enemy of all infidels throughout the world.

  • truebearing

    What’s next, throwing out video, finger prints and DNA as tools for prosecution?

    The coup is accelerating.

    • BS77

      …I am totally baffled. Why wouldn’t law enforcement look at every possible factor in investigating threats to the US?

      • laura r

        you have your answer. it is ovious. if it walks like a duck….

  • Erudite Mavin

    Oooooh where to start with this one.
    No profiling by Religion? It is the Muslim Religion, what is written in their
    Koran, what their Muslim leaders preach is what drives their wars against those who do not convert to becoming a Muslim.
    The killing in just the very recent years of hundreds of thousands of Christians
    to this very minute because they are not the Muslim Religion.
    Muslims stating they will take Israel off the map because Jews are not Muslims.
    It is their Religion, Muslim Mr. Holder that has caused wars throughout the centuries especially the recent decades and continuing.

  • pennant8

    Do I smell the OIC [organization of the Islamic Cooperation] in this? This comes pretty close to the OIC’s long term campaign to make it universally illegal to criticize religions. Basically a stealth attack to force compliance with sharia blasphemy laws. Ex Secretary of State Clinton actually had formal discussions with the OIC about this.

    • georgacollins

      They criticize Christians and Jews! And kill them. What’s not to like about this trapping?

    • defcon 4

      Somehow I doubt the OIC could care less about anyone criticising any other religion besides islam.

  • georgacollins

    In-fucking-credible…..the terrorists almost took NYC out! Oh, well. Better luck next time….calling all terrorists….take a number.

          The PC multicultural police is in action.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    If terrorists can’t be profiled by religion, then preventing attacks becomes incredibly difficult.

    Only the PC multicultural police, who by the way all happen to be secular leftists that don’t have the first clue about religion, are stupid enough to accept Islam’s claim of being a religion at first blush, but nevertheless I don’t know of any religions that like Islam similarly blocks its adherent’s freedom of conscience to choose not to believe via an automatic death sentence for blasphemy and apostasy the same way only Islam alone does. Indeed, that proves unequivocally, by the way, that Islam is a very rabid totalitarian cult as opposed to being a religion.

    Not only that, but the sole fundamental purpose of Islam, as opposed to all religions, is the subjugation of all religions and all infidels into Islamic totalitarianism through both violent and non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad (holy war) and the eventual imposition of Sharia, which is Islamic totalitarian law, in order to make Islam supreme throughout the world. Again, no true religions have a similar purpose to that of Islam, and that again sets Islam apart from all true religions.

    As a matter of fact, in Islam the only path Muslim adherents have to salvation is via waging jihad (holy war) in one form or another in the cause of Allah to ultimately make Islam supreme, as waging jihad, either violently (a tiny minority of Muslims) or non-violently via stealth and deception (the vast overwhelming majority of Muslims), is a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all mainstream orthodox Muslims in the world in one form or another. Indeed, any Muslim adherent that openly refuses to participate in waging jihad (holy war) in the cause of Allah not only is automatically condemned to h-e-l-l, but also is summarily executed for blasphemy and apostasy, as again there is no freedom of conscience to choose not to believe in Islam the same way that there is in all true religions.

    In fact, this is the same PC multicultural crowd that claims falsely that terrorism is caused by poverty, or is a product of colonialism, or is a product of American imperialism, or is a product of interventionist foreign policies, etc., etc., etc. ad nauseum. However, Muslims are not terrorists and terrorism is not a manifestation of Islam. Instead, they are jihadists, as waging jihad (holy war) in the cause of Allah to ultimately make Islam supreme is not only a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all Muslims in the world, but is also the only path to salvation for all Muslims in the world as well.

    Thus, Muslims aren’t perpetrating terrorists attacks for any of the above mentioned idiotic reasons, instead they are waging jihad, which is a perpetual holy war waged against all religions and all infidels in order to ultimately make Islam supreme, and a holy war as opposed to mere terrorism is a much more profound problem.

    Of course, the PC multicultural police expect everyone to mislabel what is really jihad as being terrorism, because if it were correctly labeled jihad as opposed to terrorism, then it would be far easier for average ordinary people to make the connection between jihad attacks and jihad (a perpetual holy war waged by all Muslims against all infidels), and if the majority of people ever make that connection, then there goes mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage down the tube.

    • laura r

      the underwear bomber was from a wealthy banker family. but in general the suicide folks are poor boys who need a purpose. the people planning the attacks are usually in an upper position in life. the govt does invite jihadist terrorists (call it what you may) to the US.

    The Bush administration banned profiling in 2003, but with two caveats: It did not apply to national security cases, and it covered only race, not religion, ancestry or other factors.

    Indeed, the Bush administration was only slightly less to the left than the Obama administration, and exactly like the Obama administration, it was also addicted to growing the size, scope, and power of the federal government. Both parties today, the Republicans and the Dhimmicrats, are just two sides of the same leftwing coin, and conservatives have about as much chance of taking their party back from the leftists that have hijacked it, as old line Dhimmicrats have of taking their party back from the Marxists that have hijacked their party. Now, if anyone doubts my analysis is correct, then please explain why both major political parties today are cooperating to allow mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage, which is really non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad for the strategic purpose of demographic conquest.

    • laura r

      you are correct about that issue, both parties are responsible for the mass immigration. the dems seem more extreme on a state/city level. this master plan has been in place for 50yrs. i get this info from horowitz.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    A lot of profiling restrictions are stupid, but in this case religion is the motivation.

    Except for what should be an obvious fact: that is Islam is not a religion but a very rabid totalitarian cult instead. Again, the only people that accept Islam’s false claim to be a religion at first blush are official members of the PC multicultural police. But yeah…Islam is the primary motivation as the only path to salvation for all Muslims is through waging jihad in the cause of Allah, and I’d say that is a very powerful motivation right there.

    If terrorists can’t be profiled by religion, then preventing attacks becomes incredibly difficult.

    I’d say it’s impossible except for after the fact, but nevertheless, Muslims aren’t terrorists, they are jihadists instead, and in stark contrast to being a religion, Islam for all intents and purposes is a very rabid totalitarian cult that has as its sole fundamental mission the subjugation of all religions and all infidels into Islamic totalitarianism through both violent and non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad and the eventual imposition of Sharia, which is Islamic totalitarian law, to ultimately make Islam supreme.

    Bloomberg, as bad as he was, might have objected, but Bill de Blasio is on the same page as Holder when it comes to empowering terrorists.

    Daniel Greenfield very apparently is a member of the PC multicultural police force. He doesn’t want people to label jihadists what they are: jihadists. Instead, he wants people to mislabel them as being terrorists, because he is concerned that labeling them jihadists as opposed to terrorists, will make it too easy for people to connect the dots between jihadists and jihad, which is a perpetual holy war waged by the Islamic community against all religions and all infidels to ultimately make Islam supreme. Hey man…actions speaks louder than words.

    • laura r

      i have never known greenfield to mince words, or cover up. you are projecting. greenfied writes as well for”atlas shugs”- the word jihad is not banned. both ‘frontpage” & “atlas shugs” are connected to “jihad watch”

      • ObamaYoMoma

        i have never known greenfield to mince words, or cover up. you are projecting.

        Projecting? Then why does he mince words by deliberately mislabeling what is really jihad as being terrorism instead and by classifying Islam as a religion on a par with other great religions? Do you believe he is afraid of the PC multicultural police, or is he the PC multicultural police?

        I mean the PC multicultural police whittle the problems associated with Islam down to terrorism perpetrated by a tiny minority of radical Muslim extremists who misunderstand Islam. That’s it. Indeed, according to them that is the sum total extent of the problem, and the problem could forever be taken care of, according to them, by ending poverty and despair in the world, i.e., through more and better Marxism, and through more and better education programs for Muslims.

        Meanwhile and on the other hand, I believe in calling a spade a spade. Thus, if you call jihad what it actually is, “jihad”, in a matter of time the majority of people will start to connect the dots, and if the majority of people connect the dots with respect to the enormous threat Islam presents to freedom in the world, then mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage, which is really non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad for the strategic purpose of demographic conquest, could be outlawed and banned.

        greenfied writes as well for”atlas shugs”-

        So?

        the word jihad is not banned. both ‘frontpage” & “atlas shugs” are connected to “jihad watch”

        • laura r

          greenfield is published on “atlas shugs”, an magazine which exposes JIHAD.
