It was just a quiet, ordinary Friday night in Orlando, Florida at an obscure Islamic Mosque where certainly a moral failure if not a legal civil rights 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 given them in the United States and Florida Constitutions, particularly as they relate to acts of Islamic terrorism.
In this day and age, that in itself is mundane, but the event brought out some very significant leaders of the Florida Islamic community and Deputy Hamze just happens to maintain an active, high-level paid position in his former job with the Council on Islamic-American Relations (CAIR).
CAIR, by the way, is a Muslim civil rights group that is currently viewed by the U.S. Department of Justice as an organization with significant ties to supporting Islamic terrorism worldwide. House Bill 3892, which is calling 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.
Let me clarify, The Broward County Deputy Sheriff Hamze was teaching a course on civil rights at the same time he is a paid policeman in the third largest Sheriff’s Department in Florida and at the same time the FBI has an open investigation on the Muslim organization that he professionally represents.
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel
Though this series of internal “law enforcement” contradictions may boggle your logical approach to life, they represent no problem whatsoever to Hamze’s boss, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, whom appointed the Muslim Brotherhood connected Hamze last year.
Apparently Hamze wasn’t bothered at all when he observed a clear-cut, unequivocal violation of civil rights of a small group of concerned non-Muslims who peacefully and legally were in attendance at the workshop. This event, by the way was advertised as open to the public and those in the community.
Alan Kornman along with several of his friends tried to attend Deputy Hamze’s public safety training at the American Muslim Community Center in Longwood, Florida. The group had no idea the meeting was closed to non-Muslims, as the invitational flyer did not specify that.
While the group waited for the training to start the Mosque’s president, Atif Fareed, abruptly told them to leave before the program began. Fareed told the group the meeting was only for the “community”, and led Kornman and his friends out into cold weather without even the shoes on their feet.
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.
Of course I guess this makes sense when you understand that many in our national security agencies are following the same Islamic narratives of the Muslim Brotherhood, in which CAIR is deeply involved.
The Broward Country Sheriff’s Department was sent formal complaints about the incident involving Hamze at the American Muslim Community Center, and these complaints have been forwarded on to the Department of Homeland Security Unit Command for further consideration.
So, was this just a quiet, ordinary Friday night in Orlando at an obscure Islamic Mosque or was indeed a civil rights violation committed by a Deputy Sheriff who also works for a Muslim Brotherhood organization? Stay tuned…
