State Department promotes pro-jihad handbook!

Congressman: ‘Is anyone in charge at the White House?’

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police disavowed its own anti-terrorism handbook, but the U.S. State Department is apparently endorsing it.

The guide instructs, “Do not refer to terrorists as ‘jihadis’” and speaks glowingly of the concept of jihad as “peaceful” and “noble.”

The Mounties cited the handbook’s “adversarial tone” in ordering its officers to disregard it on Tuesday.

The Washington Free Beacon reported, the very next day, the State Department posted a tweet promoting the handbook on its anti-terrorism Twitter feed called, “Think Again Turn Away.”

The tweet read: “Canada: handbook to help parents understand extremists, combat recruitment.”

The State Department claimed the tweet was not an endorsement.

Spokeswoman Carolyn Glassman told the paper, “CSCC (Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications) was simply sharing information about a new product related to counterterrorism. Our reposting does not connote an endorsement.”

However, the State Department tweet also included a link to an article extolling the virtues of the handbook.
