IR UPDATE: From CAIR Chicago - "Law enforcement trainings with anti-Muslim bigot Sam Kharoba scheduled for next week in Lombard, Elmhurst and Highland Park have been cancelled, thanks to the efforts of coalition partners, community activists and Village officials." - See more on their website here.

The Chicago chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations does not like nor want counter-terrorism trainer Sam Kharoba to come to Illinois. More than 20,000 law enforcement officers around the country have undergone training by Kharoba's organization in the past decade and that feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. He said about 100 Muslim officers have been among the students and that none of them complained about the material.
Kharoba is scheduled to help train suburban Chicago law enforcement in counter-terrorism next week.
Reuters has more, spoon fed to them by CAIR:
"Counterterrorism training is too important to be left to those who promote a bigoted political or religious agenda," said CAIR-Chicago Executive Director Ahmed Rehab. "Our state's law enforcement agencies should work with credible leaders of the Muslim community to address any issues related to Islam."
The Chicago chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Chicago) today called on Illinois law enforcement authorities to drop Sam Kharoba, a notorious anti-Muslim bigot, as a counterterrorism trainer.
CAIR-Chicago asserts that Kharoba's training materials on Islam are riddled with inaccuracies, sweeping generalizations and stereotypes, that he is unqualified as a subject matter expert on either Islam or countering violent extremism and that his training has elicited disturbingly prejudiced responses from trainees.
Kharoba is scheduled to give a training session on "Islamist Terrorism" for North East Multi-Regional Training (NEMRT) beginning August 19 in Lombard, Ill. He will also train law enforcement personnel at the Highland Park and Elmhurst Police Departments. The Illinois Terrorism Task Force is funding the training through the Executive Institute of the Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board.
For those of you who don't know CAIR, was an unidicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror financing case. CAIR has a long, long, long history of attacking anyone who utters anything even remotely critical of Islam as an Islamophobe. CAIR also has a long history of being apologist for Islamic terrorist. Not to mention the fact that the people who founded CAIR are tied deeply to the terrorist group Hamas.
BareNakedIslam has more on Kharoba:
Kharoba is a Jordanian-born Christian who has been one of the most prominent, respected counter-terrorism instructors in America, since the attacks of September 11, 2001. He is a trainer to America’s beat cops, one of several hundred working the law enforcement training circuit. Sam Kharoba, who believes that ‘Islam is a highly violent radical religion,’ has taught Florida law enforcement 21 times from 2005-2012. CAIR wants Sam Kharoba, founder of the Florida-based Counter Terrorism Operations Center, barred from training state and local law enforcement agents because, CAIR says, he’s a bigot.
In This 2008 video Kharoba talked about CAIR.
Anyone who CAIR and its chapters across the nation attack is someone you should actually listen to because they are telling the truth about terrorism and/or Islam.
