CAIR-Seattle: Muslims Urge Balance in Police Training on Islam
(SEATTLE, WA, 5/22/2008) – The Washington state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-WA) is calling on Port of Seattle Police to ensure that a two-day training course that begins today, titled “The Threat of Islamic Jihadists to the World,” will offer a balanced perspective on Islam and Muslims.
CAIR-WA said local Muslims leaders recently met with Chief of Port of Seattle Police Colleen Wilson to express their concerns that the course, which is being taught by a “former Muslim” and claims to be “based on Israeli experience,” will promote stereotypes and religious and ethnic profiling.
