The Flag of Islam Flying Above the White House Movie Makes Bloomberg Go Ballistic
The Third Jihad is quite real
Mayor Michael Bloomberg has blasted the use of a controversial movie portraying American Muslims as extremists to help train New York police officers. The mayor said police chiefs used ‘terrible judgment’ in screening The Third Jihad to nearly 1,500 recruits.
‘As soon as they found out about it, they stopped it,’ added Mr. Bloomberg.
The movie – which was played during counter-terrorism training seminars – features scenes of Christians being shot in the head, car bombs exploding and a doctored picture of a black Islamic flag is shown flying over the White House
Mr Bloomberg said neither he nor Police Commissioner Ray Kelly knew about the film being shown.
The movie was screened on a continuous loop while officers were signing in for counter-terrorism training from October to December 2010, according to police documents obtained by the Brennan Center for Justice, a think tank at New York University.
As many as 1,489 officers, including 68 lieutenants, may have seen it, the documents say.
Deputy Police Commissioner Paul Browne said that the movie was not among the official training materials and that the decision to play it in the background at the training sessions was made by a sergeant. He said she has been reprimanded.
This was never used in training, period. It was never authorized for use in training, period,’ Mr Browne said. The screening of the film inside the 36,000-member police department has been known for months, but police originally said only a few officers had seen it.
Police stopped showing the film after one of the trainees complained. After showing scenes of violence, a narrator reportedly says: ‘This is the true agenda of much of Islam in America. ’A strategy to infiltrate and dominate America…This is the war you don’t know about.’
Muslims groups have complained that the film exaggerates radical Islamic elements. Among the film’s claims, according to Tom Robbins, of the Village Voice, who first discovered it was being watched by NYPD recruits, is that most American Muslims are involved in some way in promoting terror.
‘After it was over, I was thinking, “What was that?”‘ an officer who saw the full-length 72-minute movie told Mr Robbins. ‘It was so ridiculously one-sided. It just made Muslims look like the enemy. It was straight propaganda.’
According to the New York Times, the film was produced by the right-wing Clarion Fund, an independent non-profit organization that distributes documentaries detailing the threat of radical Islam. source – Daily Mail UK
