NYPD Used Anti-Muslim Movie For Training

According to the New York Times, the New York Police Department showed the anti-Muslim documentary 'The Third Jihad' between three months and one year of training at its COBRA (Chemical, Ordinance, Biological, and Radiological) Unit.

'The Third Jihad' showed Muslim terrorists shooting Christians in the head, executed children covered by sheets and a faked photograph of an Islamic flag flying above the White House with the sign "Islam Will Dominate!"

Documents obtained by the Brennan Center for Justice revealed that the film was “played on a continuous loop during the sign in, medical and administrative process” of the training.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg told the Associated Press: “Somebody exercised some terrible judgment. As soon as they found out about it, they stopped it.”

However, former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani appears in the film which he endorses as a "wake up call for America."

Staff at the COBRA Unit said they obtained the video from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, but the identity of that DHS agent who provided the film remains a mystery.

“It’s clearly a propaganda, anti-Muslim film,” said Linda Sarsour, a member of the Muslim-American Civil Liberties Coalition. “It’s overly dramatic, piecing together things out of context and threading it together to make this very false narrative about Muslim Americans.”

The film was created by the Clarion Fund, a group that has produced multiple anti-Muslim films, including 'Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West' and 'Iranium.'
