Willful ignorance on Islam

Now, the Obama administration — led by Holder — has decided that Islam is a “race,” and therefore to examine or even to adduce a Muslim’s Islamic beliefs about jihadbeheadingviolence against kuffar (“infidels”), or re-establishing a caliphate is tantamount to racism. This administration behavior is rationalized because “federal authorities have in particular singled out Muslims in counter terrorism investigations and Latinos for immigration investigations.”
It is difficult to express just how willfully ignorant of reality these statements and accompanying policies are.
The extract above is from "First-Class Islam: Eric Holder Puts Muslims Above Terror Suspicion", by Eric Furnish, previously a lecturer at the US' Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, and strikes me as a sober assessment of the issues, the primary one being the conflating criticism of Islam(ism) and Jihad doctrine with "racism".  Well worth a read.  It's here.
