Joe Kaufman writes at Frontpagemag.com:
When Sheriff Scott Israel made the decision to hire Florida CAIR leader Nezar Hamze as a Deputy Sheriff at the Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO), he did so knowing that Hamze was involved with a Muslim group with, at the very least, a questionable background. And he did so against the advice of three ranking officials from the Sheriff’s office, who refused to recommend Hamze a little over one year prior to Hamze’s hiring."
"Surely" Sheriff Israel "would know that CAIR was founded by individuals associated with Hamas," Kaurman observes. "Indeed, CAIR was established as part of a terrorist umbrella organization led by the then-global head of Hamas, Mousa Abu Marzook, who was based in the United States at the time."
The upshot is that Sheriff Israel "has compromised the BSO and exposed local and national security to a threat from within," Kaufman argues.
"Scott Israel has ignored the directives of his distinguished BSO colleagues and has done what, for many, is the unthinkable," Kaufman continues. "He has brought together the worlds of law enforcement and terrorism."
By the way, those directives, those "non-recommendations," "may have had a little to do with the fact that Hamze was found to be lying on his polygraph test," Kaufman suggests.
"According to BSO Polygraphist Melissa Broadhurst, 'It is the opinion of this examiner that the applicant had chart reactions to the following polygraph test questions: lying about use of marijuana, lying about use of illegal drugs, lying about buying illegal drugs'," Kaufman writes.
What should happen now? "Sheriff Israel’s resignation should be swift," Kaufman concludes, "so that the BSO and the community can move on to leadership who will serve to protect and not place the community in danger."
