Katharine Gorka, a controversial national security analyst who specializes in discussing the threat posed by Muslims to the United States, has criticized that the Department of Homeland Security trains its agents that Islam is a religion of peace.
Gorka, who heads the Council on Global Security think-tank and Threat Knowledge Group consulting firm, has expressed countless views against Islam and has called for an all-out ideological war with "Islamists".
Gorka’s think-tank focuses on the Muslim Brotherhood, having publishing numerous articles denouncing the group and warning against its influence in the US.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said it was "alarmed" by Trump's recent appointees, including Gorka.
The organization said in a statement that Gorka has a history of "Islamophobic views", citing her writings in the "White supremacist website Breitbart" and has pushed for legislation to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group and impose sanctions on its “affiliates, associated groups, or agents.”
"She is married to Sebastian Gorka, another Breitbart News contributor. Sebastian Gorka, who is also known for his Islamophobic views, calls religious profiling of Muslims 'common sense,'" CAIR added.
Gorka joins a list of controversial Trump appointees, including Stephen Bannon, the former chief of Breitbart; Michael Flynn, who has proclaimed that fear of Muslims is not irrational; and KT McFarland, who has said that Russia's Vladimir Putin deserves a Nobel Peace Prize.
