U.S. Army officer fired for class on radical Islam invited to teach in U.K.

A high-ranking United States Army military officer, who was fired from the National Defense University for teaching a politically-incorrect course on Islamic terrorism and strategic response, will be a featured speaker in Great Britain at a conference for French, Italian and British military and security personnel. The event is being sponsored by the SMi Group and will be held in London, England, on Nov. 17-18, 2014, according to counterterrorism expert and special operations officer Darryl Hines on Tuesday.
The United States Army's Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Dooley, considered a foremost expert on Islamic terrorism and asymmetrical warfare, was part of a U.S. purge of the military and law enforcement of men and women who refused to kowtow to President Barack Obama's politically-correct orthodoxy. Dooley, however, is being welcomed with opened arms by the British, who watched their own citizens beheaded by Islamist terrorists, and are taking the radical Muslim threat seriously.
Lt. Col. Dooley, a West Point graduate, is considered a top United States counterterrorism expert, who taught a course that familiarized military officers with the war against radical Islamists. In 2012, he was fired from the prestigious National Defense University (NDU) after he was informed the course materials he used would be revamped to exclude a number of items such as references to Islam and to replace the words Islam and terrorists with terms such as extremists and militants.
But that wasn't enough for complainers such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), and so the course's author and instructor, Lt. Col. Dooley, was removed from the faculty permanently for basically telling students -- many of whom were battle-hardened military officers -- that many practitioners of Islam are responsible for terrorism.
"One can only wonder how much protection students at [NDU] who were Catholics and Christians would receive from this Administration and its media sycophants when they themselves verbally attack Christians," said former police commander and military officer Mike Snopes.
According to Dooley, the National Defense University's Joint Forces Staff College course included a slide-show that informed students that "their beloved country" is fighting a life and death battle with Islamists and that "we need to recognize that the U.S. and its allies are at war with Islam." JFSC educates military officers and other national security leaders in joint, multinational, and interagency operational-level planning and warfare, counterterrorism and other subjects.
According to an Examiner source, it's believed a complaining soldier, whose identity is being protected, may be the pawn of some of the Muslim groups such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) or Muslim Advocates, who have successfully shutdown many law enforcement counterterrorism training courses.
"This politically correct nonsense would be laughed at if we had a reality check now and then. On the one hand, the majority of terrorist attacks worldwide are perpetrated by radical Muslims who actually apply the teachings of the Koran. Anyone who studies the history of Islam, especially within the
"The CAIR group is considered by some to be a front-group for radical Islamists — several of whom are currently in prison or deported — and frequently supports certain Democratic politicians who do their bidding. Rep. John Conyers of Michigan is a perfect example," Hanrahan alleges.
"Counterterrorism experts condemned by CAIR include Walid Phares, Robert Spencer, Bill Getz, Pam Geller and others who refuse to sugarcoat the Islamic terrorism threat," Snopes added.
