U.S. military class taught ‘total war’ against Islam, destroying Mecca necessary for fighting radicals

Muslim pilgrims circle the Kaaba at the Grand mosque, on the last days of the annual haj pilgrimage, in Mecca November 8, 2011.

WASHINGTON — A course for U.S. military officers has been teaching that America’s enemy is Islam in general, not just terrorists, and suggesting that the country might ultimately have to obliterate the Islamic holy cities of Mecca and Medina without regard for civilian deaths, following Second World War precedents of the nuclear attack on Hiroshima or the allied firebombing of Dresden, according to documents obtained by Wired.com’s Danger Room blog.

The Pentagon suspended the course in late April when a student objected to the material. The FBI also changed some agent training last year after discovering that it, too, was critical of Islam.

The teaching in the military course was counter to repeated assertions by U.S. officials over the past decade that the U.S. is at war against Islamic extremists, not the religion itself.

“They hate everything you stand for and will never coexist with you, unless you submit,” the instructor, Army Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley, said in a presentation last July for the course at Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, Virginia. The college, for professional military members, teaches midlevel officers and government civilians on subjects related to planning and executing war.

    Hardly unique to Muslims (Christians were far more efficient at plundering/converting cultures), but that wasn’t what I was talking about.
    Islamists tell their students that the West is out to destroy Islam. Western governments countered that they are really fighting TERRORISM which consists of a few Islamic groups and their fan club.

    The Islamists have always taught what they now teach, long before there was a USA. It’s the nature of their “Conversion by Conquest” mentality. Become Muslim or die.

    So basically what the Islamists are teaching their students is correct?

      In short – yes.

      I’m sure there they’ve got a “but, but, but, it’s not the same thing….” defence in there somewhere — I can hardly wait to hear it.
