On my honor, I will never betray my badge, my integrity, my character or the public trust.
I will always have the courage to hold myself and others accountable for our actions.
I will always uphold the Constitution and the community I serve.
Oath of Honor- Tennessee Association of Police Chiefs.
Chief Steve Anderson of the Metro Nashville Police Department may want to revisit his oath, as he continues to expose his cadets to indoctrination at a local mosque with an unsavory history, all because of the political correctness and desire to accommodate this community who in turn, holds anti-American beliefs.
The Islamic Center of Nashville (ICN), its leaders and speakers, should not be training law enforcement, or anyone else. So lets look at some of the history of the ICN.
Starting in the 90’s, the ICN received a donation from Yusef Islam, formerly known as Cat Stevens. Yusuf Islam was the Muslim Council of Britains treasurer in 1998 at the same time he was fundraising for Bosnian Muslims. The MCB is one of the largest Muslim groups in the UK whose chairman was a documented Al Qaeda operative. Islam was banned from entering the U.S as a result of this relationship. He also attracted controversy in 1989 when he defended the fatwa issued by Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini calling for Muslims to kill British author Salman Rushdie for blasphemy. He later dismissed his remarks as bad taste. Yusef has since been allowed to reenter the U.S
Another issue with the property itself is who is listed on the deed as having the same address. The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), is one of the largest Muslim Brotherhood organizations within the United States. If you consider the Muslim Brotherhood a “moderate” political party, as Obama led so many to believe, then you have no issue with this, and good luck as the Muslim Brotherhood is one of the most violent, barbaric groups in the Middle East.

In June of 2009, Carlos Bledsoe, a student at the University of Tennessee at Nashville, shot and killed two uniformed army troops in Little Rock Arkansas as they stood in front of their recruiting center. Bledsoe had actively attended the ICN where he chose to convert to Islam and name himself after the imam that radicalized him..Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad. After being sent to Yemen, being arrested and then returning to Nashville, Bledsoe seethed with rage at what he regarded as American and Jewish persecution of Muslims. Read more here. An excellent documentary on Carlos Bledsoe is Losing Our Sons. Watch it here
The Islamic Center of Nashville is also a partner of the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC), who are also representatives of the mosque. Third from left in first photo above is Dina Sirios. In Nov of 2017, 7th grade students from Meigs Magnet School in Nashville attended a talk given by Sirios and Rasheed Farhuddin ( Next to Chief Anderson). 38 out of 58 minutes of their speech was indoctrination rather than a lesson in social studies. Sirios stated to the students: “
“Were trying to give you information so you can leave here today with yet another little piece of your brain that has some new little storage compartment that has been filled with Islam stuff.” There is no historical value in that statement.
In the same photo, 4th from the left, is Zulfat Suara. Ms. Suara has been involved with law enforcement on several levels, including the FBI’s citizen academy. Unfortunately, Ms. Suara is also a supporter of the Indivisble movement, as seen in a picture with Renata Soto ( Director of La Raza). Indivisible is an organization created to resist President Trump and his administration.
Other members of AMAC, also active with the ICN is Drost Kokoye, a refugee from Kurdistan, who is an activist at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK) Ms. Kokoye not only hates being an American, but despises police. The same police that Chief Anderson exposes to at the mosque on a regular basis.
The bottom line is the Islamic Center of Nashville (ICN) has, and is a part of an ideology that is completely antithetical to the American Constitution which the Chief of police swore to uphold. Suggesting to children they should have a compartment filled with Islam stuff is indoctrination. Receiving donations from Yusuf Islam, whose relationship with extremists banned him from entering the U.S is accepting money from those who wish harm on America. Having the same address as a Muslim Brotherhood front group is dangerous, and unacceptable.
As a retired police officer, I have great respect for the men and women of the Metro Nashville police department, as they don’t get to pick who trains them. As for Chief Anderson, who continues to keep his head in the sand regarding who the ICN is affiliated with is a disgrace. There are many more connections this mosque has that we have discussed on several occasions. Exposing our law enforcement to those that want to dismantle and destroy us is what the Chief has chosen, and will continue to do as long as it is accepted.
