Promoting Islam at Lackland Air Force Base

Timothy Furnish, PhD

On August 7, 2011, in a chapel converted to a mosque on Lackland Air Force Base near San Antonio, Texas, the U.S. government officially became a sponsor of the Mahdi. . . .

[Excerpts] . . . This is the crux of the issue: According to the Lackland PAO, not only are such classes as this [read article] important to upholding First Amendment rights of military personnel, they are necessary: “if we did not allow trainees to attend the services or religious classes of their choice,” their religious rights would be violated. But this is absurd. When I attended Army chaplain’s school at Ft. Jackson, we were taught that providing First Amendment rights for troops meant that, for example, if you had three Buddhist soldiers and no Buddhist chaplain, you could scour the local village for a Buddhist priest and ask him to come minister to them weekly, it did NOT mean that a Buddhist monk could be invited onto base and allowed to, in effect, recruit among non-Buddhist personnel. The Air Force, at least at Lackland, is thus allowing Islamic proselytizing among non-Muslim Air Force trainees (and possibly higher-ranking permanent party). . . .

. . . The Lackland basic training command seems to have deferred to the Muslim Chaplain Rahman, on this issue — and the PAO told me as much. I have no desire to cast aspersions on Chaplain Rahman, for I have never met him and know little about him. But if a non-mainstream group like Oktar’s can gain entr so easily to a major US military installation simply on the Muslim chaplain’s advice, what’s to prevent another Muslim military chaplain in this, or another, branch of service from signing off on Hizb ut Tahrir’s preaching their plans for . . . resurrecting the caliphate or Tablighi Jamaat from inculcating trainees with ideal Islamic piety and the need for shariah? . . . [S]hould the U.S. military really have such a coarse vetting net, based on this episode, that it could very readily allow these, or similar, groups to slip through and disseminate their ideas to some of the most impressionable members of our military?
