Homeland Security report calls for rejecting terms ‘jihad,’ ‘sharia’

by Washington Free Beacon  |  published on June 17, 2016

A new Department of Homeland Security report urges rejecting use of Islamic terms such as “jihad” and “sharia” in programs aimed at countering terrorist radicalization among American youth.

The Homeland Security Advisory Council report recommends that the department focus on American milliennials by allocating up to $100 million in new funding. It also urges greater private sector cooperation, including with Muslim communities, to counter what is described as a “new generation of threats to the Homeland related to the threat of violent extremism.”

The funds would be used for hiring experts and new social media programs and technology to influence young people not to join terror groups.

“The department’s CVE efforts are an attempt to protect our nation’s young people from extremists who prey upon the Millennial generation,” the report says.

“The department must reframe the conversation to reflect this reality and design a robust program around the protection of our youth, which must include predator awareness and an understanding of radicalization. In doing so, our citizens will be better equipped for this threat.”

    We are not supposed to use these terms because the are not Politically Correct – BUT they are truthful and accurate – FORGET Politically Correct.

    “rejecting terms ‘jihad’ and ‘sharia’ in programs countering terrorist radicalization aimed at our American youth”….? So are there mandatory courses students take to guard against this type of brainwashing and recruiting? Frankly, sounds like cult deterrent. What were the personality types that were vulnerable to these groups?
    I remember when I attended Hunter College in NY. i was often approached by middle eastern students inquiring about how I felt about this or that US political stance. When an answer given that either took middle ground or a statement professing not to know enough to comment on the topic was a characteristic response – they moved on, changed their seats or shut up and left the room.
    Why can’t we call it what it is? Colleges and Universities all over this country are feeding these kids to extremist groups due their so called “open door/open mind” policies. Not even as simple as liberal anymore. It’s simply jaw dropping for returning students to hear the propaganda spewed from the professors now.
    These teachers who have extended vacation time, go to countries where they sit and listen to countless citizens of other countries, dis the US on many issues. In order to integrate into these other cultures by attempting to understand these cultures, they/we have to understand and agree to their opinions/observations at some level.
    Then they return home to start the new school year filled with just a little less love of their own country. Now they are of a higher intelligence because they have been exposed. Do these same educators sit and listen to foreigners complain about the policies of their own countries. Bet not!

    Obama’s time in office has promulgated this less than patriotic stance, just by observing the countries he choose’s to visit. I truly hope there are some smart kids out there that can read between the lines and always question the motive of the source. Saldly, I’m thinking there’s not enough of them.

    There is no way in this world I will excuse the terms jihad or sheria. This is what radical Islamic terrorists stand for. Why do you think they are killing Americans and Christians, raping young girls and beheading people who don’t agree with their way of life. Homeland security, I’m sure, would have a different opinion if it were one of their family members that these savages abused. So reject the very thing they stand for? absolutely not!!

    DHS want to really tighten down on the radicals. The will start using the very descriptive terms of BOY scouts of the sandy plains and Ultimate social club. Yeph that will definitely get them in line. BS BS BS BS

    Great! And Jeh Johnson is politicking that he, as the head of Homeland Security ,should come up with the watchlist to ban people from being able to purchase guns. Based on this little tidbit every Constitution loving American would be on the list and every illegal, including muslims, would be able to buy a gun. F*** these A$$holes and their PC bulls#it!! I thought Obutthole just emphasized that words mean nothing….so why ban ‘jihad’ ,’sharia’, and any other words that are true and accurate.

    Now isn’t this so adult. If I keep my eyes shut tight and don’t say his name the boogey man won’t come out from under my bed and get me.
    It’s a damned good things these politically correct spineless cowards weren’t running things when Pearl Harbor was bombed. If they had been we would all be speaking Japanese and eating raw fish. Why do we have to wait until November to get rid of Obama. He’s already guilty of enough sedition and aid to our enemies to impeach him over and over again. I guess our problem is we can’t find enough honest American loving politicians in Washington to get an impeachment started. One thing is for sure, Paul Ryan isn’t going to do it. He’s too busy trying to file a law suit against Trump for not being polite to Muslim aliens who cheer for their fellow Islamic terrorist when they kill us.

    • Terry Rushing

      An attempt to impeach Obama would have to originate in the House of Representatives. Paul Ryan hasn’t the spine for that.

  • supergun

    What is with this agency? Seems like they are on something.

    • Retired

      Just look at who Obama appointed and the ones that are hired. These so called refuges working at our airports.

      • supergun

        At one time gangsters use to break the laws when no one was looking. Now they are doing it out in the open and are lying to the American People. I have never seen such lawlessness from government agencies. Unbelievable.

  • CharlieSeattle

    Muslim control, not gun control.

    Illegal alien control, not gun control.

    …Trump 2016!

      I had heard rumors that at the ending of obamatollah’s regime, he, along with his muslim cabinet and bought off dems( who still won’t demand positive proof of his citizenship) and other bought off congressmen will ‘ create ‘ a catastrophe that will allow him to declare a state of emergency and executive order martial law to handle the crisis. This will allow him to stay in office and pass his muslim, socialist beliefs by fiat!
      AMERICANS, wake up! Look at our cousins in Britain. Nearly a muslim state already with co-operation from parliament, islam already claims Britain as the newest state! Look at the higher hue and cry from, I believe our government assisted and condoned, the massacre in Orlando. His first comment contained a negative gun ownership statement, instead of talking about the deep cover planted muslim agent who apparently was activated by a code word. obamatollah is now spinning a lone wolf explanation to take heat off Isis supplied money to buy weapons. A deep cover agent is placed into our country to live a normal life, getting a job, family, pillar of the community until, 5,10, 20yrs later the code word is given and this pillar

      Time to call these IDIOTS for what they are……Starting with ODUMBO , Johnson, Lynch and the rest of the IDIOTS appointed or Voted in by Liberals….. a Bunch of PC DUMBASSES in need to be FLUSHED out of the DC toilet

  • CharlieSeattle

    Obama’s treasonous illegal alien and muslim RAPEfugee resettlement policies along with race baiting have created an ongoing SECOND 9/11 terrorist attack against all Americans!!

    I will even call it a Soros funded, MoveOn .com instigated, False Flag, US Government sanctioned “PURGE” against its own citizens and the police!

    Congress even allowed this to happen by funding it 100% with the recent passage of the Omnibu$ $pending Bill.

    …And Obama’s solution is to take away our guns with one hand and attack us with the other hand.

    Obama is a Liar and Traitor. Impeach this P 0 S now you skulking cowards!

    One small problem. ……There are more traitors in Congress than patriots!

    ………..Trump/Carson 2016
