NYPD Training Included Viewing Of Anti-Muslim Movie 'The Third Jihad'

Last edited Tue Jan 24, 2012, 07:22 PM - Edit history (1)

MANHATTAN -- A movie about radical Islam was shown to nearly 1,500 NYPD recruits for up to a year of their training, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

Police chiefs originally said the film, called The Third Jihad and promoting an image of American Muslims as radicalized, had been mistakenly screened "a couple of times."

But documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Law show it had been shown "on a continuous loop" for up to a year of training.

The revelation has raised questions about how the police force will repair its already strained relations with New York's large Muslim community.

Among its assertions, The Third Jihad claims that most American Muslims are involved, at least tangentially, in promoting terror, according to Tom Robbins of the Village Voice who initially discovered that recruits were being forced to watch the film in January of 2011.
