It was just a quiet, ordinary Friday night in Orlando, Florida at an obscure Islamic mosque. A moral if not legal violation was knowingly committed by the newly appointed Deputy Sheriff Nezare Hamze.
Deputy Hamze was the featured subject matter expert at a workshop designed to teach Muslims about the civil rights afforded them in the Constitutions of the United States and Florida , particularly as they relate to acts of Islamic terrorism.
It might surprise you to learn that Deputy Hamze just happens to maintain an active, high-level paid position in his former job with the Council on Islamic-American Relations(CAIR).
So the Broward County Deputy Sheriff Hamze was teaching a course on civil rights, acting as both a paid policeman in the third largest Sheriff’s Department in Florida and a paid member of Muslim organization that has ties to an organization that is being monitored by the FBI.
CAIR is a Muslim civil rights group that is currently viewed by the US Department of Justice as an organization with significant ties to supporting Islamic terrorism worldwide, including the Muslim Brotherhood. House Bill 3892, proposed to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a Foreign Terrorist Organization, passed the House Judiciary Committee and will come to the floor for a vote soon in the House of Representatives.
Though this internal “law enforcement” contradictions may challenge the average American’s sensibilities, for Hamze’s boss, Sheriff Scott Israel who appointed the Muslim Brotherhood connected Hamze last year, there is no conflict.
The event was advertised as open to the public and those in the community. However when Alan Kornman and with several of his friends tried to attend Deputy Hamze’s public safety training at the American Muslim Community Center in Longwood, Florida, they were told that the meeting was closed to non-Muslims, even though that information was nowhere on the flyer inviting the public.
While the group waited for the training to start the president of the mosque, Atif Fareed abruptly told them to leave before the program began. Fareed told the group the meeting was only for the “community”, as he led Kornman and his friends out.
Hamze apparently stood by and watched as this small, peaceful group of non-Muslims were forced to leave the public meeting. So it seems the Deputy is showing his allegiance to CAIR over the civil rights of the very citizens he is sworn to protect. Incidentally, the material on the tables in the mosque displayed cards, flyers, and brochures of the Council of American Islamic Relations.
According to LEGAL TIPS CARDS, which is a privately owned and operated U.S. company whose mission is to preserve and protect the constitutional laws and liberties of our country through education, states this about police officers’ conduct,
“Police officers shall perform their duties and apply the law impartially and without prejudice or discrimination…Diverse communities must have faith in the fairness and impartiality of their police. Police officers must refrain from fostering disharmony in their communities based upon diversity, and perform their duties without regard to race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, disability, sexual orientation or age.”
It goes further,
“3.2 Police officers shall not express, whether by act, omission or statement, prejudice concerning race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, disability, sexual orientation or age.
3.3 Police officers shall not allow their law enforcement decisions to be influenced by race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, disability, sexual orientation or age.”
The fact that Deputy Hamze stood by as Kornman and his friends were told to leave a public meeting, displays his inability to treat non-Muslims with the same fairness he would give a Muslim. Perhaps his deep ties with CAIR may be influencing his decision to dismiss the civil rights of non-Muslims.
Interestingly enough if House Bill 3892 passes, Hamze would more than likely be investigated because of his involvement with CAIR which has been proven to have connections with the Muslim Brotherhood/HAMAS. It is puzzling to imagine that we have powerful law enforcement officials who are supposedly working to protect the lives of all citizens in their jurisdictions that also retain professional ties with terrorist affiliated groups.
