The American public school system is notorious for spending lots
of money on
each student, failing to
produce well-educated kids, and along the way, coming up with lots of
really bad ideas about
education. One of the worst ideas is inviting Muslim indoctrination into the
schools in the interest of multicultural "tolerance" and "awareness."
Religious studies are generally unwelcome in
public schools, with the exception of the study of Islam. Perhaps there are those in the education
system who think that a broader understanding of Islam will make it easier to rationalize barbaric acts of
mass murder, such as we saw on September 11, 2001. But there is another more likely
goal: making all religions morally equivalent, so that no specific religion is considered superior
to any other.
The word "Islam" means "submission". All Mohammedans are commended to wage war
against the unbelievers until they submit to Islam and the entire world becomes
The U.S. is at war with Islamic terrorists who are willing to
fight to the death to destroy the American way of life. It is
obvious (to most people) that homicidal maniacs and their enablers should
not be teaching classes in American schools.
Islamic indoctrination and favoritism in schools
of Maryland Peddles Propaganda for the Mullahs. Most Western think-tanks, universities, and media outlets over
the past four decades, and especially under Trump, have justified the Islamic Republic's policies, normalizing the regime's
behavior and refraining from covering repression in Iran compared to other countries. Compare covering the Khashoggi
case with the murder of Zahra Kazemi and Sattar Beheshti by the Western media: a mountain of news against a pebble. But
some of these centers have become propagandists of the Islamic Republic not just because of their enmity toward Trump;
rather, their programs and products are supplied from Tehran, and the Islamist regime pays for them. The University of
Maryland's Center for International and Security Studies is one of them. The site of this center, as well as the
IranPoll Institute, which co-conducted the survey, is also silent about its funding sources. In today's world, a lack
of transparency means corruption. If the funds of these centers are not financed from dirty money, the Alavi Foundation
and exchange offices in Tehran, why are their sources not announced? What does an academic and polling center have to hide?
Lends a Hand in the Effort to 'Islamicize' Science. A few days ago, an email from Zahra Takhshid (granddaughter
of Mohammad Yazdi, former head of the Islamic Republic's judiciary) was sent to some people, and I was one of the
recipients. In this e-mail, a plan for the Islamization of information technologies in the field of law, especially
sharia, was proposed. This is apparently the research project of Takhshid as one of the lecturers at Harvard Law
School. Harvard University, which once trained members of the U.S. Supreme Court, is at one of its lowest points today,
where the Islamicization of the internet and information technology has been promoted by the granddaughter of one of the
founders of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Is Cleansing Jews From History. [Scroll down] But three years later, when the first draft of the Ethnic
Studies Model Curriculum (ESMC) was released, [Elina] Kaplan couldn't believe what she was reading. In one sample
lesson, she saw that a list of historic U.S. social movements — ones like Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, Criminal
Justice Reform — also included the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement for Palestine (BDS), described as a
"global social movement that currently aims to establish freedom for Palestinians living under apartheid conditions." Kaplan
wondered why a foreign movement, whose target was another country, would be mischaracterized as a domestic social movement,
and she was shocked that in a curriculum that would be taught to millions of students, BDS's primary goal — the
elimination of Israel — was not mentioned. Kaplan also saw that the 1948 Israel War of Independence was only
referred to as the "Nakba" — "catastrophe" in Arabic — and Arabic verses included in the sample lessons
were insulting and provocative to Jews. Kaplan, 53, a Bay Area mother of two grown children who describes herself as a
lifelong Democrat, was further surprised to discover that a list of 154 influential people of color did not include
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., John Lewis, or Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, though it included many violent
revolutionaries. There was even a flattering description of Pol Pot, the communist leader of Cambodia's Khmer Rouge,
who was responsible for the murder of a quarter of the Cambodian population during the 1970s.
ISIS Jihadi Stabs Four in University Classroom, University Blames Toxic Masculinity. The FBI last Wednesday
[11/25/2020] released new details about the case of Faisal Mohammad, who in November 2015, while he was a freshman at the
University of California, Merced, entered a classroom and stabbed four people. It was already known back at the time of
the attack that young Mohammad was a jihadi: The College Fix reported that he "was found to have an image of the ISIS
flag, a handwritten manifesto with instructions on how to behead someone, and reminders to pray to Allah." The new
information that has just been released about the case only confirms this, and shows up the abject idiocy of the university's
utterly predictable reaction to the attack. [...] The University of California Merced is no different from any other campus
all over the country today: full of self-righteous, pseudo-intellectual, indoctrinated bots who have been thoroughly imbued
with the notion that when Islamic jihadists attack us, it is our fault.
'Truth' in our Schools. [Scroll down] In yet another public school case, not only was there no action
against a teacher for promoting the Islamic faith in a world history class, but a court of appeals upheld a requirement for a
dissenting student to recite the Islamic conversion prayer in violation of her religious beliefs. When 11th grader
Caleigh Wood, of La Plata High School, in Maryland, refused to intone, "There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the
messenger of Allah," she was threatened with a failing grade. Students at the school were required to watch
presentations that endorsed Islam and criticized Christianity and the Pope. Ms Wood refused to complete her
assignment, citing religious objections, and sought an alternative, which the school rejected. Her lawsuit documents
that no portion of the Bible or any other non-Islamic religious texts were covered in class. Instead of viewing this as
religious coercion, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the teacher "did not violate the Establishment Clause"
of the First Amendment in teaching about Islam as part of a history class. Later, the Supreme Court of the United
States refused to review Ms Wood's appeal.
9/11 is Unlikely — and That's not Good News. The initial reaction to 9/11 was, indeed, one of
heightened alertness and sudden awareness of the possibility that we were faced with a clash of civilizations. The
Islamists had played their hand too soon, and they quickly realized that it was not a good idea to wake a sleeping
giant. Thus, they resumed their cultural jihad. It proved to be a highly successful program. After 9/11,
one would have expected that Islamic beliefs would have come under increased scrutiny. Initially, that was the
case. But suspicion quickly gave way to affirmation as jihadists in business suits began a campaign to emphasize the
kinder, gentler side of Islam. They were particularly successful in converting American educators to the idea that 9/11
had nothing to do with Islam. Before long, schools were presenting Islam as a victim of hatred, discrimination, Western
imperialism, and Islamophobia. And not long after, any critique of Islam became strictly off-limits — even
among members of our security establishment.
Vows to Stamp Out 'Islamicphobia'. The presidential campaign of 2020 has so far unfolded in more of a crisis
atmosphere than any campaign in decades. [...] In the midst of all this, on July 20, presumptive Democratic presidential
nominee Joe Biden demonstrated anew the disturbing priorities of his increasingly anti-American party. Instead of
addressing the sharp rise in crime and lawlessness, the demonization of American history and culture, the Left's assault on
the Second Amendment and other basic rights, or any of the other burning issues of the day, Biden chose to address the
"Million Muslim Votes Summit," hosted by Emgage Action, which claims to be is the largest Muslim PAC in the United
States. In the course of his rambling remarks, Biden declared: "One of the things I think is important, I wish we
taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith." In the midst of what could very well turn out to be a second
American civil war, or even the end of the United States as a free republic, Joe Biden is preoccupied with getting our
schools to proselytize for Islam more intensively than they already do. For make no mistake: that is what Biden means
when he says he wishes that our schools taught more about Islam. Schools already teach about Islam as a major world
religion. That teaching has already been widely criticized as whitewashing the crimes committed in the name of Islam
and in accord with its teachings, and Biden wants even more of that: [...]
Bows to Islamic Terror. The most corrupting influence on our democracy is rooted in political correctness in
our education system. Whereas there once was an emphasis on civic education as a means to imbue the citizenry with the
values of the Constitution, that emphasis has long been diminished. From elementary school through college, basic
requirements in American history and civics have been replaced by political trendiness. Consequently, it is not
surprising that our educational system has produced generation after generation of college administrators who suffer from an
embarrassing ignorance of the fundamental political values of the republic.
Exposes the 'Great Disparity': Islam Good, Judaism and Christianity Bad. While the Dept. of Education letter
was directed at CMES, virtually every other Middle East Studies department in America — whence so many Middle East
"experts," "analysts," and policymakers emerge — can be accused of the same exact things, including whitewashing
and promoting Islam, while ignoring its victims. Nor is this double standard limited to higher education; basic
indoctrination begins in public schools. For example, Caleigh Wood, an eleventh grade Christian student in a Maryland
high school received a failing grade because she refused to compromise her faith by making a written profession of the Muslim
creed or shahada — "There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah." School
officials denied her father's request that she be allowed to be given an alternative assignment. She was, moreover,
forced to view a series of pro-Islamic PowerPoint slides, which included the following statements: "Most Muslims' faith
is stronger than the average Christian"; "Men are the managers of the affairs of women" and "Righteous women are therefore obedient."
Taxpayer money wasted
on Russia and Islam. [Scroll down to page 9] A recent NEH grant awarded $290,000 to study the Soviet and
Russian perspectives on Islam. But there's something missing in that description: anything related to the US. The
study is part of a larger program at George Mason University and is funded by a private foundation. This is a reasonable
project, but it should be funded in its entirety as a private project. I see no reason that $290,000 of our money should
support a private study of Soviet and Russian "understanding of cultural coexistence" with Islam.
Happened When a Jewish Activist Confronted Tlaib's Jew Hatred at Rutgers. On Sunday [2/9/2020], Rutgers
University hosted the 14th Annual Interfaith Prophet Muhammad Conference. The speakers were Rep. Rashida Tlaib,
who had just falsely accused Jews of a blood libel, Craig Considine, a Catholic apologist for Islam who supports BDS, and
Imam Sayed Moustafa Al-Qazwini, an Iranian-trained Shiite cleric who had accused Israel of being behind ISIS. This panel
of Jew hatred was a project of Muslims 4 Peace promoting Islamic migration. But the founder of Americans Against
Anti-Semitism instead showed up to ask them some tough questions about hate. "What about your anti-Semitism?" Dov
Hikind, a former elected Democrat official who now takes on anti-Semitism in his former party, challenged Rep. Tlaib as
she declaimed about racism in America. Hikind was immediately confronted by a man in a keffiyah. Rutgers police
officers surrounded the founder of Americans Against Anti-Semitism and escorted him out of the room for asking an elected
official about anti-Semitism at a state university funded by the taxpayers of New Jersey. The "Interfaith" Mohammed
conference had consisted of two Muslim panelists and one token Christian who spends much of his time promoting Islam and
bashing Israel. There had not been a single panelist of another religion.
Declares Koran 'Best Book on Justice'. Muslims around the world are thrilled at the recent news: "Harvard
University ranks the Koran as the best book on justice," is the January 20, 2020 headline of a report published by
Youm7, a popular Egyptian news site visited by millions of Arabic readers.
England, Muslims are Turning Christmas Into Festivus. The latest manifestation of Islamic supremacism, leaching
the meaning out of Christian observances, comes from Whitehall Primary School. [...] ["]Children at a primary school
have been told not to sing the word 'Lord' in the Christmas carol Away In A Manger, so that pupils of all beliefs can join
in....["] But which is more important: to allow Christian children to recognize Jesus as their "Lord," as they
have for two thousand years, or to change utterly what Jesus signifies, in order to make sure that "pupils of all beliefs can
join in"? [...] We all know the answer: it is the swelling population of Muslims, who now feel numerous and powerful
enough to demand that Christians change the essence of their religious observances to accommodate them.
at U.S. School Threatened to Tell Muslim Girl's Parents After She Removed Her Hijab. Teachers at a school in
the United States threatened to tell a Muslim girl's parents that she had removed her hijab, arguing that it was part of her
"culture." [...] By attempting to enforce their deluded, progressive perception of Islam, the teachers almost put the girl at
very real risk of abuse. The story illustrates how befuddled leftists have no idea about how the modesty culture within
Islam operates to the extent where girls and women are beaten and sometimes killed for not wearing their hijab.
Public Schools Spark Protest by Adopting All Halal Meat Policy. The Dearborn Public Schools website states it
matter-of-factly: "Dearborn Public Schools ensures all meats served in our schools are certified Halal." Now one
courageous mother is fighting back, challenging Dearborn public school officials to explain why they have done this and to
provide options for students who object to halal food. The mother wrote to Dearborn schools superintendent Glenn
Maleyko, noting, "Schools have never changed lunches to fit any other religious needs. If one needed a special diet due
to religion or health, they did what all other students do, bring a lunch from home." Maleyko responded: "The
decision was based on operational considerations only, not religion. By implementing an all Halal meat option we have
increased the number of students that we are serving[.] ... It would cost a lot more to provide both Halal and non-Halal meat."
Kicks CAIR Out of San Diego School District. In a landmark case, the Council on American-Islamic Relations
(CAIR) has been forced out of the San Diego Unified School District. A lawsuit was brought against the district for
partnering with CAIR and allowing the Islamist organization to run a discriminatory, unconstitutional propaganda program in
its schools. The court agreed with this assessment. The program in question gave Muslim students special
privileges and gave CAIR the power to change the district curriculum to make sure Islam was looked upon more favorably.
Students and parents were made to watch biased videos, CAIR officials were allowed to teach students and teachers about Islam
and students were trained "how to become allies with Muslims students."
Administration to UNC and Duke: Quit Promoting Islam on Our Dime. Will the Trump Administration move
against the radioactive wastelands of far-Left indoctrination and Islamic proselytizing that our nation's colleges and
universities have become? On Friday [9/20/2019], it made a small, long overdue step in that direction: Associated
Press reported that "the Trump administration is threatening to cut funding for a Middle East studies program run by the
University of North Carolina and Duke University, claiming that it's misusing a federal grant to advance 'ideological
priorities' and unfairly promote 'the positive aspects of Islam' but not Christianity or Judaism."
threatens to halt funding of a Duke-UNC Middle East program. They say "that politics makes strange bedfellows."
Consequently, what is arguably the best college basketball rivalry in the country has led to an alliance against the Trump
Administration. The dispute is over an Islamic studies program of Duke University and the University of North Carolina
(Duke-UNC). The crux of the controversy, according to the Clarion Project, lies in a consortium program offered by the
two universities. The program is "to promote foreign language instruction for the purpose of preparing students for
careers in diplomacy and national security."
Admin Tells UNC, Duke to Revise Islam Program or Lose Taxpayer Funds. The Trump administration is calling on
the University of North Carolina (UNC) and Duke University to revise their joint Middle Eastern studies program or lose
taxpayer funding. According to the Department of Education, the program offers very few, "if any," programs focused on
the historic discrimination against religious minorities in the Middle East, and lacks balance, focusing on the "positive
aspects of Islam" while having an "absolute absence" of a similar focus on the positive aspects of Christianity and Judaism.
kids in Philly dance to chopping heads jihad song, and we still don't know why. In April, a group of kids at
the Muslim American Society Islamic Center in Philadelphia were captured on camera dancing and lip-syncing and performing on
stage to a happy little ditty of chopping heads and leading armies of Allah and torturing enemies and other Islamic political
and religious principles. And the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations announced an investigation.
Investigation, indeed. Now: Where are the results? Hat tip for the Middle East Media Research Institute for
helping bring this to light. If there's one thing both political parties should be able to come to agreement on it's
that little kids in America ought not to be singing songs that promote the chopping of others' heads. Yes?
"Never Forget" memorials face censorship, vandalism. Students at a Michigan high school were told they could
not display posters promoting Young America's Foundation's "9/11 Never Forget" project because the images were too
violent. Grosse Pointe High School North rejected the posters because they included images of the terrorist attacks on
Sept. 11, 2001, along with other images of atrocities committed by Islamic radicals. YAF spokesman Spencer Brown said
on "The Todd Starnes Radio Show" that administrators feared "the content was too violent."
Voters Helpless? [Scroll down] Islam, like Communism, Nazism, and other isms, is ideological to its
core. It still retains its poisonous ideological connection with Nazism and the Arabic version of Hitler's Mein
Kampf and its fictitious propaganda. We also know that the American educational system has been invaded by Saudi
Arabia as well as other rich-oil Arab nations of the Persian Gulf region. Well, we know that Islam is a religion of
war, not peace. Again, no elected official has made a single attempt to stop this. In many U.S. States,
schoolchildren are indoctrinated and taught propaganda that praises Islam, while Christianity, Judaism and other true
religions are squelched. Once again, those who we elected into office are silent. Perhaps they do not
like to rock the boat for fear of losing their chances of being reelected.
demise of public education. While promotion in public schools of faith-based ideology is supposed to have been
prohibited, according to the Supreme Court of the United States, the faith-based ideologies of socialism, Marxism, nihilism,
Islamism, Satanism, Darwinism, and others continue to be propagated in public schools. This is clearly unlawful.
It is prohibited. And it is destructive. But Americans across the country do and say little even to express their
opposition to the practice of indoctrination.
Proposed 'Ethnic Studies' Curriculum Lauds Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib. California's proposed new model "ethnic
studies' curriculum for children in public high schools includes several controversial topics — including the
study of Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) as important leaders. A section of the model curriculum
proposes that students learn about "significant figures" in the Arab-American community, including Omar, Tlaib, and
Palestinian-American radical Linda Sarsour — all of whom have been widely accused of antisemitism for the extreme
rhetoric they use in criticizing Israel and those who support it.
Indoctrination: Coming to a Public School Near You. One bizarre lesson called "Hip-hop as Resistance"
professes to demonstrate "how Hip-hop can be used to resist oppression and counter hegemonic beliefs perpetuated through the
media," while "introducing students to Arab-American Hip-hop." It pledges to help shatter Muslim stereotypes:
"fundamentalists, extremists, militants, fanatics, terrorists, cut off hands, oppress women, jihad as 'holy war'," or of
Palestinians wanting to "blow up airplanes," "destroy Israel," and "drive the Jews to the sea." (Actually, critical
thinking about jihad and Islamic intolerance in classrooms and elsewhere is labeled Islamophobia, an evil that merits a separate
lesson in the syllabus.)
The Editor says...
Those are not stereotypes. Muslims really do fly hijacked airplanes into office buildings. They really do oppress women,
cut off the hands of thieves, and strive to destroy Israel and drive the Jews into the sea. Stereotypes cannot be shattered
when they are based on facts.
Introduces Radical Anti-Semitic High School Curriculum. [Scroll down] Public research materials viewed by
the [Washington] Free Beacon reveal that several committee members behind California Department of Education's Draft
Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum are outspoken critics of Israel. One member, Samia Shoman, is a Palestinian-American
who teaches in the San Mateo Union High District. Her lesson plans on Palestinian history have been featured as a
teaching tool by the Qatar Foundation International, a group tied to the nation and its efforts to proliferate boycotts of
Israel. Shoman is also a pro-Palestinian activist on Twitter. Another committee member, Gaye Theresa Johnson, an
associate professor at UCLA college of social sciences, also has supported pro-Palestinian causes on Twitter, including
retweets from pro-Iran individuals who have deemed Tehran as the victim in the ongoing nuclear standoff with the United States.
High School Allows Muslim Proselytizing In Class. Memorial High School in New Jersey has come under fire after
it allowed two Muslim students to proselytize for their religion in multiple classrooms and allowed banners invoking the
Muslim god Allah and urging students to celebrate Ramadan to be hung on school grounds. [...] "A public school district would
never hang posters praying for Jesus Christ to shower students with love and wisdom," asserted FCDF Executive Director Daniel
Piedra. "Apparently the Left's notion of the so-called 'separation of church and state' only applies to Christians."
the Moral and Legal Status of Islam in the United States. A number of US public schools are commemorating
Muslim holidays and holding Islamic prayers towards Mecca. Rocky Mountain High school in Colorado in 2011 became the
first school in the United States to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic, replacing "One Nation Under God" with "One
Nation Under Allah." Revolutions of the deepest kinds always begin with our children.
Win for Students of San Diego School District. The "Anti-Islamophobia Initiative" was developed under the
direction of Hamas/CAIR as a "holistic" plan to supposedly protect muslim students and their families from bullying and
discrimination. As part of the mandated training initiative, staff and students had to receive instruction by
Hamas/CAIR officials on "how to become allies to muslim students," and Hamas/CAIR is empowered to revise school curriculum to
"portray Islam more favorably." Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund stated the initiative violated the Constitution
because it singled out Muslim students for preferential benefits and empowered Hamas/CAIR with governmental decision-making
Students Assigned to Color Reverential Photos of Rep. Ilhan Omar. In her short time in Congress, freshman
U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar has made a name for herself as a vehement anti-Semite. She infamously invoked age-old
anti-Semitic tropes when she tweeted "It's all about the Benjamins [$100 bills], baby," accusing the pro-Israel organization
AIPAC of donating to politicians in order to secure favorable treatment of the Jewish state. Omar is also an ardent
supporter of the Hamas-funded Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. Now it appears that
despite her highly controversial record and short career in public service, schoolchildren in Minnesota are being taught to
venerate the fledgling politician.
School Fails Christian Student for Refusing Islamic Prayer. "Most Muslims' faith is stronger than the average
Christian." "Islam at heart is a peaceful religion." Jihad is a "personal struggle in devotion to Islam,
especially involving spiritual discipline." "To Muslims, Allah is the same God that is worshiped in Christianity and
Judaism." "Men are the managers of the affairs of women" and "Righteous women are therefore obedient." The
problem is that those statements were part of the instruction in a public school in Maryland, and one of the students in the
classroom now is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to condemn such religious lessons funded by taxpayers. The Thomas More
Law Center has submitted a petition asking the high court to take up the case of student Caleigh Wood.
Day in Philadelphia. Young schoolchildren attending the Muslim American Society Islamic Center in Philadelphia
are being taught to be enemies of Jews and are being indoctrinated in the culture of violent Islamic jihad. [...] In the
video you will also see Muslim women looking like typical public-school teachers organizing and supervising the children as
they recite these heinous and barbaric lines — as if they were singing lines from The Little Mermaid in the
local middle-school spring musical. That's perhaps even more chilling. After the Middle East Media Research
Institute (MEMRI) discovered this video and Fox News reported on it, the Muslim American Society posted a statement on
Facebook explaining, "The center celebrated 'Ummah Day' where children sang songs from their cultural traditions... not all
songs were properly vetted. This was an unintended mistake and an oversight in which the center and the students are
remorseful." Translation? "Oops! You weren't supposed to see that one!" The Islamic Center's leaders
are remorseful because they got caught indoctrinating their children in violent Islamic jihad.
Academic Umbrella for Bigots. There is a lot of justifiable hand wringing over the Israel bashing and overt
anti-Semitism in American academia. The bias is correctly blamed on the leftist "progressives" who buy into the libels
promoted by Moslem/Arab students and their campus affiliated organizations. It is no secret that Saudi Arabia has
poured a huge sum of dollars both from government and private donors into American colleges to promote whitewashed Islamic
studies and influence opinions on the Middle East. However, there is another culprit, namely the Middle East Studies
Association (MESA) which feeds faculty to universities and colleges throughout the nation.
Up to Anti-Semitism. On April 22, the Muslim American Society (MAS) uploaded a video on its Philly Facebook
page, filmed at its 6th annual Ummah Day celebrating diversity. In the video, children are seen singing and dancing
in Arabic to a YouTube song known as the "revolutionaries anthem." Four girls are highlighted, fluently reading Arabic
scripts advocating violence to regain dominance over the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem: [...] MAS originally dismissed the
video as a mere "oversight", without embarrassment or apology. MAS also claimed that MEMRI, the Middle East Media
Research Institute watchdog group that uploaded the video had provided a false translation. MEMRI stood by its
translation which was subsequently confirmed by an Arabic studies professor at Drexel University. Shortly thereafter,
MAS reported that an unidentified person in charge of the event had been dismissed and that the organization reaffirmed its
longstanding opposition to anti-Semitism and was forming a commission to assist in sensitivity training, bless their
hearts. MAS recently issued a third iteration of the event claiming that the girls in the video, supposedly
demonstrating Arabic proficiency, didn't understand the words they were reciting and every volunteer in attendance
was too busy and/or didn't understand Arabic sufficiently to intercede.
Lied About School in Jihad Video Being a "Separate Entity". The Muslim American Society (MAS) Philadelphia
chapter had a clear message after a shocking video showed up on its Facebook page last month showing school children
lip-syncing to a pro-jihad song that called for beheading and torturing Israelis. We have nothing to do with it,
MAS-Philadelphia said in a statement condemning the video's content. Even though the school is called MAS Leaders
Academy, and even though it was among many school videos posted on MAS social media outlets, the statement described it
as "a separate entity renting space from MAS Philadelphia." Pennsylvania corporate records tell another story.
American Society's History Belies Its Concern Over Kids' Jihad Video. The Muslim American Society (MAS) claims
it is disturbed by a video, exposed last week by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, showing school children lip-syncing
a pro-jihad song calling for Israel's elimination and the torture of its people. The videos showed school children
singing along and gesturing in a light choreography with a "Birds of Paradise" song that says, "The blood of the martyrs is
calling us," and urges revolution "until we liberate our lands ... and we crush the traitor." The Middle East Media
Research Institute (MEMRI) subsequently found a separate part of the program that featured young girls reading a
script: "We will chop off their heads, and we will liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque. We will
lead the army of Allah fulfilling His promise, and we will subject them to eternal torture." The videos from the event
have been removed from Facebook. [...] The thread running through all of these examples — from Omeish's 2000
speeches to the Philadelphia "Ummah Day" program with schoolchildren — is a call for jihad to eliminate
Israel. It keeps happening no matter how many times MAS claims the rhetoric does not reflect the beliefs of a movement
created by the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.
The Editor says...
How many more Islamic indoctrination centers exist, from which we haven't seen leaked videos like this?
American Society says 'disturbing' video of children wasn't vetted. A video showing children speaking in Arabic
about sacrifice and chopping off heads wasn't vetted before being posted on the Facebook page for the Muslim American
Society's Philadelphia chapter, and it does not represent their values, the executive director of the national group said
Sunday [5/5/2019]. Executive Director Ayman Hammous said the Muslim American Society learned of the content of the
video after the Middle East Media Research Institute posted a translation Friday. The society issued a statement
calling the video "disturbing" and condemning the words used in it. "It does not represent our understanding of Islam,
nor the understanding of the mainstream Muslim community," Hammous said in an interview Sunday.
The Editor says...
Ri-i-i-ight. Then apparently all the people who work at MAS Philadelphia — at least those who were involved
in the staging and production of this video — misunderstand Islam in exactly the same way. Is that what
Mr. Hammous would have us believe? No, I think the Philadelphia center was quite proud of the kids, and was
embarrassed when the video was leaked. Here's a project for an ambitious reporter: Go interview all the kids who
appeared in this video and ask them if they have been taught anything different since the video came out. The video
production wasn't the kids' idea. Adults were involved from beginning to end: Adults who don't know that Muslims
are supposed to keep quiet until the time is right for an all-out uprising.
Will Chop Off Their Heads' for Allah, Children in Philadelphia Muslim Society Say: Reports. Disturbing
footage has emerged from an Islamic Center in Philadelphia, showing children lip-syncing to songs and reading poems saying
they would sacrifice themselves and kill for Allah. The Muslim American Society Islamic Center in Philadelphia (MAS
Philly) uploaded videos on April 22 to its Facebook page. The videos show children singing lyrics that appear to call
on the next generation of Palestinian youth to embrace terrorism and glorify suicide bombers, according to the Investigative
Project on Terrorism (IPT). The boys were shown to be lip-syncing a song, during which several of them held up a
copy of the Quran.
of children in Philadelphia Muslim Society: 'We will chop off their heads' for Allah. Disturbing footage of
Muslim kids saying they would sacrifice themselves and kill for the "army of Allah" surfaced from an Islamic center in
Philadelphia. The Muslim American Society (MAS) Islamic Center in Philadelphia posted the video to its Facebook page
celebrating "Ummah Day" in which young children wearing Palestinian scarves sang and read poetry about killing for Allah and
the mosque in Jerusalem. The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), a watchdog group, alerted Fox News to the
video. "These are not isolated incidents; they are happening in major centers of the country — including in
Pennsylvania," MEMRI said in a statement.
Youth Indoctrination on Full-Display in America. Lyrics to the songs explicitly call on the next generation of
Palestinian youth to embrace terrorism and glorify suicide bombers. But these children are not performing in Ramallah
or Gaza. This hate-filled song was played in Philadelphia and proudly broadcast on Facebook. The Muslim America
Society (MAS)'s Philadelphia chapter held an annual "Ummah Day" on April 17, featuring delegations of children representing
several countries across the Middle East and North Africa. The event's theme was advertised to focus on the "Golden age
of Islamic science." Instead of focusing exclusively on the Islamic world's scientific achievements, however, part of
the day was devoted to showcasing children forced to embrace radical Islamist culture. And it's more common than most
people realize. [...] MAS, which prosecutors say was founded in 1993 as the "overt arm" of the Muslim Brotherhood in America,
has a long history of promoting violent incitement in the U.S.
Omar Allowed To Talk To Elementary Students Behind Closed Doors — Parents & Press Allegedly Not Allowed.
On Friday [4/26/2019], jihad Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) visited elementary and middle school students in Minneapolis, but allegedly,
parents and the press were allegedly not allowed to attend. However, not to miss a moment in the spotlight without any serious
questioning of her clear Islamic agenda, Omar posted video of her arrival at Anne Sullivan Community School. "One of the best
parts of my job. It's so rewarding to be back in-district visiting with dedicated staff and curious students," Omar wrote on
video on antisemitic conference at the University of North Carolina. Ami Horowitz, the investigatory filmmaker
who often exposes campus madness, has produced a video that ought to terrify anyone familiar with the history of Weimar
Germany. Then, as now, universities were among the leaders in whipping up Jew-hatred and actually persecuting
Jews. One of the neglected aspects of the origins of the Holocaust is that the purge of Jews from Germany's famous
universities opened up new career possibilities for those faculty and students who remained once their institutions were
Judenrein. We are not (yet) at the point of expelling Jews from faculties and student bodies, but we are at the point
of violent attacks on Jews being justified by faculty members at prestigious universities, as a jaw-dropping interview in
Horowitz's latest video shows. We are also at the point where multiple academic departments at such a
university — a publicly owned and funded institution of (purported) higher learning — are comfortable
sponsoring an academic conference with open Jew-hatred, and government funds (nearly a quarter million dollars!) are
allocated to sponsor it.
Islamic School Linked to Iran, Hezbollah Propagandists. Clarion Project has discovered that a private
Islamic school in Dearborn, Michigan is linked to diehard supporters of Hezbollah and the Iranian regime. The school
teaches students from kindergarten through 9th grade. Great Revelations Academy was founded in 2015 by open supporters
of Grand Ayatollah Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah. By their own admission, the school's founders are dedicated to spreading
his message. Fadlallah was a supporter of the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran and is considered to be a key inspirer of
Hezbollah. Some go so far as to describe him as the terrorist group's "spiritual leader." Fadlallah supported the
1983 bombing of the U.S. Marines barracks in Beirut that killed 241 U.S. Marines (who were serving as peacekeepers) as well
as 58 French troops and six civilians. In 2005, he reiterated his support for suicide bombings against Israel.
When he died in Lebanon in 2010, Hezbollah called for three days of mourning. Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei sent his
condolences. One of the academy's founders, Fouad Bayoun, told Arab-American News that one of the purposes of creating
the school was to pass along Fadlallah's teachings to children in America.
Democrats Pushing Sharia Law? [Indeed], the federal government illegally funded a national curriculum titled
"Access Islam." This indoctrination program outrageously teaches students how to become Muslim — how to pray
as a Muslim, how to perform Islamic "daily worship," and how to perform the "core duties" of being a Muslim. A
California school banned all Christian-based books from its library, including books by Christian authors.
Superintendent Dr. Kathleen Hermsmeyer says they do not allow "sectarian materials" on their state-authorized lending
shelves. Public schools are celebrating Islam while banning Christmas. Public education is the battlefield of the
School District Forced to Dump CAIR's Islamic Indoctrination Program. The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund
forced an unprecedented lawsuit settlement on the San Diego Unified School District, which partnered with the
terrorism-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations, requiring the district to shut down its discriminatory,
unconstitutional "anti-Islamophobia initiative." The embattled CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in 2007 in
an alleged criminal conspiracy to support both HAMAS and the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development. In 2014
the United Arab Emirates designated CAIR a terrorist organization. CAIR, which poses as a Muslim civil rights
organization, falsely claimed that President Trump's election caused a wave of attacks on Muslim students in the San Diego
teacher indicted for trying to work for ISIS. A former substitute teacher from Texas has been indicted for
allegedly trying to work as an English teacher for ISIS. Warren Christopher Clark, 34, was captured recently by the
Syrian Democratic Forces, the Justice Department said. Clark had allegedly submitted a resume and cover letter to the
Islamic State, noting that he had a bachelor's degree from the University of Houston, worked as a substitute teacher in Sugar
Land, Texas, and had done teaching stints in Saudi Arabia and Turkey.
Activist Advocates Using Public Schools to Convert Americans to Islam. In a video clip that has recently gone
viral, Islamic activist Sharifa Alkhateeb talks extensively about using U.S. public schools to proselytize Islam and convert
America to an Islamic nation. "We are in the process of developing Islamic education for our children. And yes,
all of us have the hope and dream... of creating not only Islamic schools that cooperate with each other but Islamic schools
systems that would span the country, that's what our further objective is," Alkhateeb explains. "So as we approach the
public school system, we have to approach it with that credo, that we see ourselves as worshipping Allah in being involved
with them in any way."
Hide Information On Funding From Qatar. The nation of Qatar, a Sharia-law monarchy that has been accused of
trying to influence other countries' governments, gave $1 billion to elite American universities since 2011, according
to Department of Education data. Some universities have refused to discuss where strings are attached to that
money. The Qatar Foundation, for example, filed a lawsuit against the Texas attorney general Oct. 12 to hide
information about the $225 million Qatar has awarded to Texas A&M University since 2011.
in the Classroom: Islamist Group Partnering with Public Schools. In 1993, Ibrahim Hooper, director of
strategic communications for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), said that, "I wouldn't want to create the
impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future. But I'm not
going to do anything violent to promote that. I'm going to do it through education." Twenty-five years later, CAIR
could be making headway on that goal, through its relationships with US public school districts in at least three
states. CAIR — an Islamist group and United Arab Emirates-designated terrorist organization that bills
itself as a defender of civil rights — has achieved special concessions for Muslim students and launched the
inappropriate insertion of religion into publicly-funded education. Meanwhile, pushback from parents and outside
organizations is building.
made to read sob-story about Muslim boy named 'Osama' on 9/11 anniversary, parents outraged. Parents of
students in a New Jersey middle school are furious that a teacher skipped a 9/11 anniversary discussion and opted to read a
fictional story about a Muslim boy named "Osama" instead. On the anniversary of the 2001 terror attacks masterminded by
Osama bin Laden, a social studies teacher at Glen Meadow Middle School in Vernon Township decided not to have students
discuss the day of mourning honoring the thousands killed, the New Jersey Herald reported.
will somebody tell the far-left commies at the Huffington Post that Islam is NOT a race? "Germany's New
'Far-Right' Campaign Poster Is Unsubtly Racist," reads the misleading headline in the Islam-pandering, far-left wing rag,
Huffington Post. The poster, from the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party says: "Islam-free Schools" and shows a
group of smiling German schoolchildren. The poster is from the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party which is not "far
right," but increasingly mainstream populist in Germany, the result of Chancellor Angela Merkel's Open Door Muslim immigration
polices which have flooded Germany with more than 1.5 million Muslims in the past 3 years. If anything, the
ad is pro-German and anti-Islam, which is a religion, not a race, and should never be a part of any that belongs in a public
school. They aren't talking about NO Muslims in school, they are talking about NO Islam in school.
tells students: 'American intervention is the primary CAUSE of terrorism'. An American Studies class at the
University of Massachusetts Boston teaches students that United States military intervention is the primary cause of
terrorism in the world today. How do I know? I was briefly enrolled in the Fall 2018 course. Paul Atwood, a
former Vietnam-era Marine turned anti-war protester, teaches The U.S. and Intervention in the Middle East. During
the course's first two lectures earlier this month, I listened as Atwood, a senior lecturer in the College of Liberal Arts,
scrutinized instances of American military intervention with what I perceived as a conspiratorial lens, including the
assertion that the U.S. government knew more than it has let on about the terrorist acts of Sept. 11, stopping short
of calling it an inside job.
College Rejects "9/11: Never Forget" Posters to Protect Muslim's Feelings. Citing bias reports filed during
last year's 9/11: Never Forget Project, administrators at Ripon College in Ripon, Wisconsin, ruled that YAF's 9/11: Never
Forget Project posters are creating an "environment" where "students from a Muslim background would feel singled out and/or
harassed." As a result, Ripon administrators will not allow the Ripon Young Americans for Freedom to hang the flyers as part
of their work to remember the victims of September 11 or other victims of radical Islamist terrorism. When leaders from
Ripon YAF pressed administrators in a meeting to explain what was objectionable about the posters which merely depict history, the
school's "Bias Protocol Board" failed to provide anything more than the usual bizarre leftist excuses that rely on feelings, rather
than facts, to back up their censorship.
Taxpayers Sue Over Anti-Semitic, Pro-Islam School Lessons. A group of Massachusetts-based taxpayers are suing
the school committee in the city of Newton, a wealthy, liberal enclave, over what they claim is the leadership's ongoing
promotion of anti-Semitic school materials and the promotion of Islamic religious beliefs, according to an announcement from
the organization handling the lawsuit. Education Without Indoctrination, a local community group driving the lawsuit,
"claims multiple violations of the Massachusetts Open Meeting Law stemming from the school committee's handling of a
burgeoning scandal over anti-Semitic lessons and the promotion of Islamic religious beliefs as objective facts in the public
school district's history classes," according to a press release from the group. The lawsuit stems from a controversy
of Newton Public Schools use of what the group claims are "unvetted educational materials" produced by the Saudi Arabian oil
company ARAMCO and the Qatari government, which has long been cited for its funding of terrorism.
Somewhat off-topic ... maybe. Islamic
Relief Offers Summer Lunch In DeSoto. The Islamic Relief USA's summer feeding program is being made possible a
little closer to home this year since the organization awarded a $10,000 grant to a local group — the Family Joint
Venture Foundation (FJV). The grant is to help feed children during the summer, as part of the United States Department
of Agriculture's (USDA) Summer Food Service Program.
The Editor says...
I don't exactly see how the dots connect here, but somehow the USDA — the federal government — is giving
money to Islamic Relief USA, to supply meals to low-income kids. Does an imam pray before the meal? Is nothing said
about Islam after everyone has had lunch?
We Fight Islamic Indoctrination In U.S. Public Schools. All you have to do is look at what's happening in the
Netherlands to understand why the Thomas More Law Center is so zealously fighting against Islamic indoctrination in public
schools across the United States. Parents in the Netherlands can't stop their children from being subjected to Islamic
indoctrination. In fact, parents who refuse to let their children attend mosque trips, are subject to fines and are
often bullied by their schools. Such bullying also happens here in the United States as witnessed by Libby Hilsenrath
when she made the public aware of Islamic indoctrination in the Chathams Middle School. But, parents in the United
States have the Thomas More Law Center and our Constitution to stop this indoctrination. Hugo Bos, investigating
Islamic indoctrination in Dutch schools, is aware of the lawsuits fighting Islamic indoctrination being filed by the Thomas
More Law Center in the United States. The Church Militant website contains a disturbing article on how Dutch Children
are being forced to submit to Islam.
Children Forced to Submit to Islam. Parents in the Netherlands can't stop their children from being
indoctrinated with Islam against their wishes. A new report from Cultuur onder Vuur (Culture Under Fire) documents
evidence from hundreds of cases where children in Dutch schools are instructed by an imam on how to pray and how schools are
taking measures to hide these trips from parents. Church Militant spoke with Hugo Bos, the campaign leader for Culture
Under Fire, who said they started investigating Islamic indoctrination in Dutch schools after they found one video of a
school trip to a mosque. "We found it very shocking," he said. "We found proof of 19 cases where children
took part in Islamic rites."
about Islam in U.S. schools. [Scroll down] Islam "promotes kindness and compassion" and "opposes
violence"? If he said the same thing about Catholicism, it would provoke a flood of letters to the editor detailing the
militant, misogynistic, and child-abusing nature of Catholicism, accompanied by threats to cancel the subscription. But
you can get away with saying such pleasant things about Islam because very few will complain. Mr. Yoffie claims
that there is a "huge and profound ignorance about Islam." That's true enough, but it's not what he thinks. He seems
to assume that students are kept in the dark about all the positive aspects of Islam when exactly the opposite is true.
Not only does he appear to know little about Islam, he also seems to know little about American schools. The bland "kindness
and compassion" version of Islam that he wishes they would teach, is what they do teach and have taught for many years.
do children learn when textbook publishers rely on Islamist advisors? [Scroll down] The first thing you
notice is the brevity of the account. 9/11 is arguably, the most important event to have occurred thus far in the 21st
Century. Yet it merits only one short paragraph in a book which purports to acquaint students with "the modern world."
The next thing you notice is that there is no mention of Islam or Muslims, only of "terrorists." Glencoe Publishers'
Modern Times gives a slightly more detailed account of 9/11, including the fact that "More Americans were killed in
the attacks than died at Pearl Harbor or on D-Day in World War II." Yet, once again, there is no mention of Islam or
Muslims — the perpetrators are simply "terrorists." That's a bit like teaching about Pearl Harbor without
mentioning the Japanese, or discussing D-Day with no reference to Nazis. One textbook does refer to "Middle East
terrorism" and "Muslim movements," but hastens to add that "the vast majority of Muslims believe terrorism is contrary to
their faith." The upshot of this "reverential treatment of Islamic history" is that textbooks "give a false
picture — or no picture at all — of grave threats to the U.S. and world" — including "the
life-and-death threat of nuclear terror." While educators and textbook publishers are fretting over diversity and
sensitivity, the ATC study rightly calls attention to the threat to national and international security posed by the
whitewashed version of Islam presented in our schools.
girl's homework includes writing a letter to her family about becoming a Muslim. Mark McLachlan, 43, from
Houghton-le-Spring, near Sunderland, has slammed the decision by the Kepier School to ask pupils to pen the note. He
has refused to let his stepdaughter, who he has asked not to be named, complete the task after failing to see what the letter
would accomplish. Mr McLachlan said: 'I know as part of the national curriculum they have to learn about all religions.
'I just don't see why they should ask a child to write a letter addressed to their family about converting to another religion.
I really just don't see what the letter will gain. 'If they want children to learn about Islam, then go teach them all about it
and its history. 'What I don't want is a school asking my stepdaughter to look into reasons for converting to another religion.
in American Schools. While jihadists across the globe are busy slitting throats, American school children are
taught that jihad is an "inner struggle" and Islam means "peace." While Muslim rape gangs destroy the lives of teenage girls
in England, American teenagers learn that Muhammad was a champion of women's rights. And although American students are
taught all the gruesome details of the Atlantic slave trade, they learn little if anything about the Arab slave trade which
took many more lives. If Islam is part of the curriculum in your child's school — and it probably
is — you can be almost certain that it is treated in a deferential fashion. If your child's school uses
prepackaged materials that look as though they were vetted by a committee of Muslim apologists, they probably were. And
if you notice that your boy or girl is practicing Arabic calligraphy, don't worry. He or she is just writing that
"there is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger."
Education: Islam in the Classroom. Should schools teach about Islam, and if so, how should they teach
it? There's a general consensus among educators that when dealing with controversial subjects, schools should maintain
a distinction between teaching and preaching — between an objective presentation and advocacy. But some
contend that line has already been crossed in regard to Islam in the classroom. In Chatham, New Jersey, a parent is
suing the school system for forcing 7th grade students to watch a set of videos in their World Cultures and Geography class
that essentially proselytize for Islam. [...] The fact is, many American schools have blurred the line between teaching and
dad sues school for Islamic indoctrination of his daughter. The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), a national
public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, announced that it has agreed to represent Richard Penkoski in his
fight with the Mountain Ridge Middle School, located in West Virginia, over the Islamic indoctrination of his 13-year old daughter.
green-lights parent's lawsuit against public school teaching 'Islam is the true faith'. A federal judge has
refused to toss out a lawsuit brought by a parent against the Chatham, New Jersey, school district, which showed
seventh-graders a pro-Muslim video that included an invitation to convert to the "true faith." In denying the school
district's motion to dismiss the case, U.S. District Court Judge Kevin McNulty said the motion was worth only "minimal
discussion." Kate Oliveri, an attorney with Thomas More Law Center, is representing Libby Hilsenrath, whose 12-year-old
son attends Chatham Middle School. Oliveri said the decision to let the lawsuit proceed came as no surprise.
professor made students remove shoes, praise Allah before entering office. A newly retired Muslim professor at
the University of Connecticut was caught on camera last year ordering students to remove their shoes and praise Allah before
entering his office. Felix Coe, a former professor of biology at the public university, was seen berating a female
student for not removing her shoes before addressing him in his office, according to a video posted last week by Jihad Watch.
'Shahada' assignment draws legislator's attention. A state lawmaker in West Virginia is looking into what's
behind the report that a public school in his hometown had its seventh-graders practice some of the Pillars of Islam and
write out that religion's main creed. OneNewsNow reported last week that Mountain Ridge Middle School in Gerrardstown,
West Virginia, asked its seventh-graders to write out the "Shahada," a Muslim's main confession of faith by which one
converts to Islam. One of those students shared with OneNewsNow her discomfort and her feeling "weirded out" by that
particular assignment. State Delegate Marshall Wilson (R-District 60) — who also has a seventh-grader
in that school — says he's going to get to the bottom of the controversy.
Your Child Could Be Indoctrinated — It Can Happen to Anyone. Radicalization is a process of changing
a person's thinking. Jihadi recruiters use many kinds of manipulation to trap young adults into thinking that whatever
is wrong with their life now, it will be rainbows and lollipops if they join a terrorist organization. Young girls who
fantasize about getting married and having babies are fooled into thinking that meeting a jihadi fighter online is their
dream come true. Young men who fantasize about being the hero of the story are made to believe they can free the Syrian
civilians from their peril or miraculously save the world. But nothing could be further from the truth. Militant
jihadism is just what it seems to be — a brutal, evil, barbaric, bloodthirsty ideology seeking to turn naive young
adults into killers for a political cause.
the Schools: The Case of West Virginia. This is an outrage, but it is common nationwide: the Daily Caller
News Foundation reports that Mountain Ridge Middle School in West Virginia is "instructing junior high students to write the
Islamic profession of faith ostensibly to practice calligraphy." Students are made to write out the Shahada, which
states: "There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah." [...] In order to convert to Islam, one
says the shahada. Saying the shahada makes you a Muslim. The shahada is what is on the black flag of jihad.
No non-Muslim student should be forced to write or say the shahada without the qualifier "Muslims believe that..." This is
because it is a statement of faith. If the school exercise is requiring students to write it, it should be clear from
the wording of the exercise that this is Islamic faith, not the student's faith. That distinction has been glossed over
in many, many school textbook presentations.
parents outraged after NY school holds moment of silence for Gaza dead. Several Jewish parents expressed
outrage over the weekend after children at a New York City school were instructed to observe a moment of silence for the
dozens of Palestinians killed during clashes along the Gaza border. The announcement of the Tuesday tribute at Beacon
High School in Hell's Kitchen was made by a student over the school's PA system. It was not clear whether the decision
had been approved by the school principal. The New York Post, which reported the story, said it was not able to reach
principal Ruth Lacey for comment.
Why Is This Being Taught
in Public Schools? A West Virginia parent is upset after his daughter was asked to write the shahada, the
Islamic declaration of faith, as part of "calligraphy practice" in her world religion class. The shahada —
which states, "There is no God but Allah, and Mohammed is his messenger" — is used in the conversion process to
Islam. Rich Penkoski objected to the assignment that his seventh-grade daughter Brielle was given, saying the religious
nature of the assignment was inconsistent with what students were asked to do while studying other religions.
Indoctrination Taking Place in Georgia Schools. Islamic indoctrination is reportedly taking place in Georgia
schools, which are even implying that Allah is the same as the Christian and Jewish God. Charisma News reports that
Georgia schools are required by the Georgia Department of Education to teach about Islam, but some believe the schools have
taken that mandate too far. The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) reports that in one Atlanta-area school,
students were given an assignment asking them to fill in the blank of a sentence that stated, "Allah is the [blank] worshiped
by Jews & Christians." Children filled in the blank with the words "same God."
Islamic call to prayer in Texas public high school. There's a special space for Muslim students at Liberty High
School — room C112 — an empty classroom provided by the school for daily prayer sessions. School
officials initially opened up a small conference room for Islamic prayers in 2009 after they noticed some Muslim students
leaving on Friday afternoons to pray, and demand eventually forced them to dedicate an entire classroom for the ritual.
"This is my seventh year at Liberty, my first year it kind of started when a core group of students were leaving campus every
Friday for Friday prayer," principal Scott Warstler told Wingspan, the student site.
US Schools Promoting Islam, Censoring Christianity! The Columbia Daily Herald in Middle Tennessee reported
details of the allegations. In the Maury County school district, the paper reported parent Brandee Porterfield said her
daughter "brought home school materials containing the Five Pillars of Islam." School officials explained, she told the
Herald, that Christianity was not part of the state's standards, so it wasn't covered.
UK: Funding Textbooks
That Teach Children to Blow Themselves Up. This past weekend it emerged that last year the British government
funnelled £20 million to Palestinian schools. A review by the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural
Tolerance in School Education (IMPACT-se) found that these revenues go towards funding a curriculum which omits teaching
peace, promotes the use of violence — specifically jihad — and encourages martyrdom. An analysis
of the textbooks used in Palestinian schools funded by the UK government — using UK taxpayers' money —
found that these textbooks, which come from the Palestinian Authority (PA), "exerts pressure over young Palestinians to acts
UK: "Teacher Handbook"
Supporting Extremism? Sweeping reforms in Britain's education system are having an unintended dangerous
consequence: the infiltration of extremist Muslim influence on the teaching of Religious Studies. This influence is
visible in The Oxford Teacher Handbook for GCSE Islam, authored by a small team of educational specialists and Muslim
community leaders. The purpose of the manual is to guide British teachers lacking in-depth knowledge of Islam to help
their students pass the Religious Studies General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE), the UK's public examination for
pupils at the end of Grade 11.
Florida Middle School to Host Syrian Sheik Who Called For Gays and Jews to Be Killed. Less than two years after 49
people were slaughtered by an Islamic terrorist at a gay nightclub in Orlando, the Greenwood Lakes Middle School in coordination
with Muslim community groups in Orlando have decided to host a Syrian sheik who has called for the killing of gays and all
Jews. In a flyer created for a "Positive Parenting Skills" conference, Islamic scholar Dr. M. Rateb Al-Nabulsi is
listed as a "special guest speaker" at the event, which is being held by the Security Advancement Center (SAC), Islamic Circle
of North America (ICNA), and Aisha Cultural Center in Orlando.
Indoctrinating Our Children. To enhance "cultural diversity," students at Maryland's La Plata High School were
ordered to copy the Islamic creed "Shahada" which states in part, "There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger
of Allah." One worksheet distributed by the school states, "Most Muslims' faith is stronger than the average Christian."
indoctrination now being force fed to American public school students. In one 'Geography' class in Virginia,
when students are forced to write the Islamic shahada (Islam's declaration that there is no God but Allah, and Mohammed is
his prophet), over and over in Arabic, it no longer has anything to do with geography or calligraphy and everything to do
with Islamic proselytizing in public schools.
CAIR California Crams Islam
Down the Throats of Children in San Diego. The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund reports: "The Freedom
of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF) yesterday (March 14, 2018) issued investigative subpoenas to the California chapter of the
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its local office in San Diego. The subpoenas are part of FCDF's
federal civil rights lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the San Diego Unified School District's (SDUSD)
'anti-Islamophobia initiative.' The multi-year program was developed under the direction of CAIR as a "holistic" plan
to supposedly protect Muslim students and their families from bullying and discrimination. As part of the initiative,
staff and students must be taught by CAIR officials "how to become allies to Muslim students," and CAIR is empowered to
revise school curriculum to portray Islam more favorably."
professor forced out after claiming Muslim women are safer in U.S.. A University of Cincinnati professor is being forced to
retire after he told a Muslim student that female Muslims are safer in the U.S. than in the Middle East. University of Cincinnati
assistant professor Clifford Adams has been placed on administrative for the remainder of the semester and will retire May 1,
The Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
Diego Schools Ordered To Reveal Correspondence With Muslim Advocacy Group. A federal judge ordered the San
Diego Unified School District on Tuesday to hand over evidence detailing its correspondence with the Council on
American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) about the implementation of a controversial anti-Islamophobia bullying initiative at San
Diego public schools. The development is the latest in a long-running saga concerning school officials in San Diego
coordinating with CAIR, an American-Muslim civil rights and religious organization with known links to a number of
anti-Israel groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood. The controversy began in April when the San Diego school district
announced it was launching an anti-Islamophobia initiative to combat what it described as a vast and underreported epidemic
of anti-Muslim bullying in the district's schools.
Pressured to Quit for Wanting Islam Out of Public Schools. In yet another sign of the confusion of our age, Plano, Texas City
Councilman Tom Harrison is in hot water. Mayor Harry LaRosiliere wants him to resign, and local Muslim groups are planning protests until
he does. His crime? Calling for a ban of Islam in public schools — in which no religion is supposed to be taught as fact
or favored. The ACLU and atheist groups fought for decades to get Christianity out of American public schools, but are they rushing to
defend Tom Harrison? Of course not.
Islam get special treatment in Eastern Iowa schools? Christmas is not specifically recognized by the ICCSD in
terms of being a special holiday. On the 2017-2018 district calendar Christmas is listed as a "Holiday," along with
Thanksgiving, New Year's Day, Labor Day and some others. But the date of December 25th simply falls within the two week
period that is labeled "Winter Break." [...] Our young Muslim activists are calling for the two holiest days of Islam to be given
special treatment by having each of them declared a specific school holiday for which schools will be closed; an idea to which
the ICCSD Board seems receptive. In addition, we have an elementary school principal who is planning on using public school
resources and grounds to recognize one of those two religious days a month before it even occurs!
Councilman Pressured to Resign Over Facebook Post Calling for Banning of Islam from Schools. Tom Harrison has
issued a groveling apology, which you can read in its nauseating fullness at the end of this news article, but that isn't
enough. The local Muslims are planning protests and intend to keep up the pressure until he resigns. And what was
his crime? He called for Islam not to be taught in public schools, just the way Christianity and Judaism and other
religions aren't. We have seen over the years many, many examples of Islam being taught as fact in American public
schools. Why should Tom Harrison or anyone else have to apologize for standing against that?
Bias on Middle East Invades K-12 Classrooms. The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America
(CAMERA) recently published a study about the introduction of factually inaccurate and partisan information related to Israel
and Middle East politics in public school history curricula. The study focused on Newton, Massachusetts, where teachers
used materials recommended by Harvard University's Center for Middle Eastern Studies. But the problem isn't limited to
Massachusetts. All around the country, educators are being trained to teach politically motivated courses by US
government-funded Middle East centers. As I wrote in The Arab Lobby, Israel's detractors have become increasingly
aggressive at infiltrating K-12 curricula to shape the views of Americans from an early age. Their goals are to
demonize Israel and present a sanitized education about Islam. Their willing accomplices are faculty at prestigious
universities, many of whom are BDS advocates, who often receive funding from Middle East sources.
Who Is Finding Their Way Into American
Students' Minds? As long as our American youngsters receive this poisonous propaganda as a paltry substitute
for a solid education of the region, we will never learn to acknowledge and appreciate the extremist ideology of radical
Islam that is trying to defeat us.
Tries to Get UCF to Expel Student Who Refused to Try On Hijab. A Twitter fight between two University of Central Florida
students went viral after Rayyan Sukkarieh called for the expulsion of Kathy Zhu. The controversy began Thursday afternoon [2/1/2018],
after Zhu tweeted photographs of Muslim students holding an event where they were encouraging students to try on a hijab and giving out
free head coverings.
NJ Mom Sues School
for Islam Indoctrination. A New Jersey mother is suing officials and teachers in her son's middle school
charging that seventh-grade students were subjected to Islamist propaganda and explicit calls to convert to Islam. No
other religion was being taught to their children except for Islam. The suit, filed in a U.S. district court against
the Chatham Middle School, claims the students' First Amendment rights (freedom of religion and separation of religion and
state) were violated by the curriculum used in their World Cultures and Geography class. Libby Hilsenrath and Nancy
Gayer, whose sons were exposed to the course material, originally brought their concerns to the attention of the school
board. Instead of an actual investigation, Hilsenrath charges that those concerns were disregarded.
New Jersey Middle
School Sued Over Islamic Propaganda, Explicit Call to Convert to Islam. The Thomas More Law Center ("TMLC"), a
national nonprofit public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, filed a federal lawsuit yesterday evening in the
New Jersey District Court against several officials and teachers of the Chatham Middle School and the School District of the
Chathams, located in New Jersey. The lawsuit, claiming several violations of the First Amendment to the U.S.
Constitution, was filed on behalf of Libby Hilsenrath and her minor son. Seventh-grade students at Chatham Middle
School were forced to endure Islamic propaganda and an explicit call to convert to Islam through a disturbing set of videos
in their World Cultures and Geography class.
New Jersey Teacher Urges Kids
To Convert To Islam. A teacher at a New Jersey Middle School gave students an assignment pressuring them to
convert to the "true faith" and celebrating the slaughter of Christians. However, as soon as one mama bear saw her
child's homework, she unleashed a brutal counter-attack that had the teacher immediately regretting the sick lesson.

school student suspended for debating Islam with Muslim — in debate club. A Missouri high school that
suspended a student for making critical comments about Islamic extremism says he's not allowed to appeal the finding of
wrongdoing. Senior Alex Lonsdale, a member of Liberty High's nationally ranked debate club, says he was just trying to
have a friendly debate. During his free period Oct. 17 at the public school near Kansas City, Lonsdale joined a

university support for terrorists: the ten worst schools. While America's eyes are focused on the battle to
defeat ISIS and cease the relentless series of global terrorist attacks, at colleges across the United States, a coalition of
terrorist-linked organizations are waging a propaganda war to destroy the Jewish state, annihilate the Jewish people and fan
the flames of hatred for America as Israel's "protector." Led by Students for Justice in Palestine, the Muslim Students
Association, and Jewish Voice for Peace, these organizations do not launch rockets at Israeli civilian targets or dig terror
tunnels under Israeli kindergarten classrooms. But they spread propaganda and take money and marching orders from those
who do. Their mission is to whitewash actual terrorist attacks and promote the genocidal lies of terrorist organizations,
specifically Hamas, whose stated goal is the destruction of the Jewish state.
to Consider Punishing Students Who Say "Terrorist". A school district near Allentown, Pennsylvania says the
best way to end hate speech is to ban hateful words. The Saucon Valley School District is considering a policy that
would ban five words if they are used in a hateful way, according to local news reports. One of the words that could be
banned is a derogatory word for a woman — the other is a racial slur typically used in rap music. The other
words on their proposed list include retarded, terrorist and gay. [...] The policy was reviewed but not voted on at Tuesday's
[11/28/2017] school board meeting.
Middle-Schoolers FORCED to Visit a Mosque. Students from Metro Nashville Meigs Middle Magnet School visited the
Islamic Center of Nashville (ICN). Under the guise of innocent religious talks, the school directed students to embrace
the practices of Islam. Dina Sirois, operations director of the mosque, told students they would "talk about beliefs
and practices in Islam." Then she systematically insinuated Islam is superior to Christianity and Judaism. Her
remarks were not at all the balanced, open interpretation she pretended they were.
Forces Children To 'Convert To Islam' — Fed-Up Father Fires Back With Epic Response. Our friends
over in England are way ahead of the rest of us when it comes to forcing Islam down the throats of school children.
Mark McLachlan was furious when his 12-year-old stepdaughter brought home an assignment from her school asking her to "Write
a letter to family about converting to Islam." The 43-year-old didn't let his daughter work on the assignment, and instead
wrote up his own essay (below) with a heavy dose of the reality of Islam. He said that he recognizes that the children
are all expected to learn about "all religions" but he doesn't see why the students should be required to talk about leaving
their own religion and choosing Islam. As a Catholic I would be infuriated to have to deal with such an assignment and
would have happily accepted a child in my care receiving a zero.
Creates Religious Conduct Code Because Muslim Students Pray Too Loudly, Flood Bathrooms. A moderately
prestigious university in Germany has instituted a religious code of conduct in response to complaints about Muslim students
praying noisily in the library and flooding campus bathrooms with water as they ritually cleanse their feet. The
University of Hamburg is the site of the new set of religion-related rules, reports Times Higher Education, a London-based
education news website. The 42,890-student university is the first in Germany to institute such a code. The University
of Hamburg's executive board determined that the religious code of conduct is necessary after receiving numerous complaints.
Separate but equal facilities are acceptable again! Kellogg
and Brown University to Offer Segregated Dinners for Black, Muslim Students. Liberal Brown University is set to
offer segregated dinners for black and Muslim students on the tail of recent Antifa protests that have turned violent over
the last few months. Purporting to offer "racial reconciliation," Brown administrators took a $300,000 grant from the
Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) to "break down racial hierarchies and create a positive narrative
about race in the community," the College Fix reported. The money was supplied by donations by liberal organizations
such as the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and Newman's Own Foundation.
of Kansas opens women's only lunchroom as 'safe space' for Muslims. At the conclusion of the Student Senate
meeting on Jan. 27, Diversity and Inclusion Director Omar Rana announced the creation of a women's lunchroom in the Office of
Multicultural Affairs. Room 102 of the OMA is available from noon to 1 p.m. on weekdays, mainly for women on campus who
require a safe space to eat lunch due to religious attire that cannot be removed in public, Rana said. He said the process
to get the lunchroom approved was lengthy and required the exploration of many campus resources, including Student Senate.
Islamic Rules in Danish
Schools. Some Muslim schools in Denmark appear to be employing anti-Semitic teachers, enforcing gender inequality,
employing violence against students, offering poor education in general, and teaching jihad. There are 26 Muslim schools
in Denmark. While they operate independently of the public schools, the state sponsors them heavily — as it
does other independent schools in Denmark — covering 75 % of their budget. The demand for Muslim schools in
Denmark has grown in the last decade, as Muslim schools have increased their number of pupils by almost 50% since 2007; they
now cater to almost 5,000 pupils. (It is unknown, however, how many Muslim children learn in the so-called "Koran
schools," where Islam and Arabic are taught after school to those children who do not attend a Muslim day school. Koran
schools — as revealed in the Danish TV documentary "Sharia in Denmark") — are not under any supervision
from state or municipal authorities).
A Master's Degree
in Whitewashing Islam. For countless Norwegian citizens, Document.no is essential reading. For the
nation's cultural elite, however, it is anathema — a major chink in an otherwise almost solid wall of pro-Islam
propaganda. So it is no surprise to learn, via Universitetsavisa, the student newspaper at the University of
Oslo, that a Religious Studies student there, Royer Solheim, has written a master's thesis on Document.no, in which he
describes it as a locus of "hate rhetoric," "Islamophobia," and "conspiracy theories." Nor is it a surprise that he was
graded an A.
Has Islamic Indoctrination Overtaken American
Schools? There is an insidious program featuring a white-washed, and thus untrue, version of Islam that has
permeated our educational institutions, beginning in kindergarten, winding its way through the 12th grade, and into our
universities. In circuitously slick ways, the Saudi government has managed to insinuate its own version of Middle
Eastern culture and history, and strictly positive views of Islam, upon millions of American students thus indoctrinating
them to a biased, pro-Islamic position when the full truth is far more complex and, not surprisingly, not quite as glowingly
favorable. Journalist Stanley Kurtz has explored the depth of this interference and warping of American kids'
perceptions of Middle Eastern culture in an extremely illuminating essay, Saudi in the Classroom.
Sounds the Alarm: Palestinian Propaganda is 'Infiltrating' American Education. Originally published in
Legal Insurrection and reposted in the pro-Israel outlet The Algemeiner on Monday [8/7/2017], political science
instructor Miriam Elman decried how content, such as the Arab World Studies Notebook that a Massachusetts high school
praised as providing an "Arab point of view" and a "balanced perspective," is anything but unbiased. According to the
American Jewish Committee, the textbook consists of an "overt bias and unabashed propagandizing," such as demonizing Israel
as the antagonist in every Arab-Israeli war, and praising Muslim fighters for their "gentle treatment of civilian
Decide If There Is Religious Indoctrination in the Schools. A blog radio host named Barry Secrest of
Conservative Refocus reported recently that students in Virginia are being taught to explore and understand the basic beliefs
of Islam as well as the Five Pillars that guide Muslims in their daily life" as follows:
• Muslim Prayer
• Ramadan is Here
• The Hajj: Islamic Sacred Pilgirmage
The students are assigned an art project which consists of creating adorable little "posters illustrating the Five Pillars of Islam" for
display throughout the entire school. It's not likely photos of Jesus are going up anytime soon. Can you imagine if Evangelicals
or politically conservative Jews started proselytizing in the schools? The Access to Islam seems to be on the border or over the border of
preaching to us. There is a fine line between understanding and indoctrinating.
Submission: Top Australian Law School Teaches Sharia Law 'Benefits'. Australia's most prestigious law
school accommodates two courses which call for elements of sharia law to be incorporated in the mainstream legal
system — including allowances for polygamy and lowering the age of consent to end opposition to child
marriage. The courses also chide judges who denounce Muslim values during sentencing.
City Bans Pork in Kindergartens to Accommodate Muslim Children. Salzburg has banned pork in city-run
kindergartens in what local officials have defended saying it meets the needs of Muslim children. The ban was not
advertised or announced and has been in place for some time until parents of children attending kindergartens in the city
noticed that pork was never present on school menus. An official from the Salzburg mayor's office said the ban on pork
was both for health reasons and "among other things, the needs of Muslim children", Kronen Zeitung reports. The
office of the Social Democratic Party (SPÖ) deputy mayor Anja Hagenaue confirmed the accusations saying that while there
was no official order given by the left wing government, the ban had been in place for around five years. Ms. Hagenaue
added the children preferred chicken and carrots to pork.
New York City
high school won't serve prom food until 9PM due to Ramadan. Brooklyn Tech seniors will gather at Pier Sixty for
the prom on June 3, but not all their classmates will be able to attend the big bash at the hot spot billed as the largest
waterfront venue in Manhattan. The party this year falls during Ramadan, a month-long time of religious fasting and
prayer for observant Muslims. "Obviously the date wasn't the best date," said senior Pakeza Sahbbir, who will be not
attending. "You're not suppose to listen to music during Ramadan, so that's why it's not really allowed."
night conflict pits Muslim students vs. education officials. Students at an elite New York City high school
petitioned to change the date of their senior prom — scheduled for June 3 — because it conflicts with
the Muslim observance of Ramadan, but the school has denied the request, the New York Post reported. "I think it's kind
of unfair because there's a major population of Muslims at Brooklyn Tech," Pikeeza Shabbir said. The annual holy month
for Muslims requires that observers consume no food or drink from sunrise to sunset. The Brooklyn Technical High School
senior prom starts at 7 p.m. — while the sun is still out. The dance was planned months in advance, New York
education officials told CBS2, so it will not be rescheduled. Dinner is expected to be served after sunset, at 9 p.m.
school in Muslim-controlled city has girls-only prom for Muslims. Five Muslim girls from Hamtramck High School
started "Princess Prom" in 2012 to give girls the opportunity to dress up as they please and dance the night away. Last
year, 230 girls showed up to the dance at the PNA Banquet Hall in Hamtramck. This year, the team expects about
250 in attendance. The event is intended to create a safe space for Muslim girls who normally cover up in hijab to let
their hair down in an environment with no boys and no cellphones. Phones are banned to prevent problems with photos being
posted to social media.
Fundraises to Get Books Featuring Muslim Children Into Schools. A Philadelphia mom recently launched a GoFundMe
campaign to get children's books featuring African-American Muslim children to West Philadelphia schools. Melanie
Bartlett, who is raising her own daughter as a Muslim, has already raised over $6,000 and is still growing. The
campaign is backed by the West Philadelphia Coalition Against Islamophobia (WPCI), a grassroots group that fights against
and raises awareness about Islamophobia. Bartlett's husband, Aziz, is on the board.
Separate but equal: Detroit
School to Hold 'Muslim Girls Only' Prom. Segregation is all the rage these days. Under the banner of
"social justice," more and more schools are dividing their students into increasingly niche groups to provide them with "safe
spaces" apart from each other — the polar opposite of inclusivity and integration. With the goal of creating
a "safe space" in mind, a Detroit school has set out to hold a girls-only prom to celebrate traditional Muslim customs.
It's being created for girls who would otherwise be prohibited by their ultraconservative Muslim families from going to regular
proms, where attendees are allowed to have fun and dance with members of the opposite sex in good old American tradition.
Discrimination: Bagheads good. Capheads bad. Student at Bromley College refuses to remove her cap
unless Muslim women are forced to remove their headbags. Caroline Powell, in Bromley College buildings, has been told
repeatedly to remove her cap, but believes that, while Muslim women are allowed to wear headbags, this represents double
standards and discriminates against Christians and other non-Muslim women.
Diego: Ground Zero for Islamic Indoctrination in American Public Schools. The San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) history of accommodation
to the demands of Muslim students began in 2007. That year, Carver Elementary School in East San Diego ignited controversy when 100 Somali Muslim students transferred
from a closed charter school. To accommodate these new students, the school rescheduled its recess periods to allow a 15-minute break each afternoon for Muslim
prayer. The school also added Arabic to its curriculum and removed pork and other non-halal food from the cafeteria. The outcry forced the school to rescind
the break, but it simply shifted the lunch hour to accommodate Muslim prayer. SDUSD wasn't as accommodating to a Christian student in 1993 and was successfully
sued when it denied a high school student's request for a lunchtime Bible study group. This past week, SDUSD, in collaboration with the Council on American Islam
Relations (CAIR), instituted an anti-bullying campaign aimed specifically at protecting Muslims students.
mini-mosque in pubic school. The Peel District School Board (PDSB) says the debate over Muslim prayers in
publicly funded schools is over. But parents from many different faiths are speaking out against public officials
giving preferential treatment to one religion.
CAIR's Islamization of San Diego Public Schools. The (SDUSD) [San Diego School District] has been working with
the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on "anti-Islamophobia" plans, including adding lessons on Islam in social
studies classes and adding Muslim "safe spaces" to campuses. The plan is to be implemented in the fall with the start
of the new school year.
school took pupils to meet an 'extremist' imam at the mosque where Lee Rigby's killers worshipped. Primary
school children were taken to meet an Islamic preacher described as 'extremist' at the mosque where Lee Rigby's murderers
worshipped. The trip saw pupils from Kilmorie Primary School in Lewisham, London, meet controversial preacher Shakeel
Begg, who the High Court said 'promoted and encouraged religious violence'. Students at the school, aged eight and nine,
were taken to the Lewisham Islamic Centre to take part in a discussion with the imam.
Your tax dollars at work: PBS
Islamic Lesson Plan Encourages Students to Identify with Radical Jihadists. A PBS high school lesson plan
encourages students to empathize with young Palestinian terrorists who want to become suicide bombers to achieve martyrdom
and suggests they would rather die because Palestinians have less land and are restricted. The "Dying to Be a Martyr"
multimedia lesson plan is available free of cost to teachers and students at PBS Learning Media, reports Justin Haskins at
the Heartland Institute. It utilizes videos titled "Martyrdom," "Suicide Bombing," and "Israel and Palestine," as well
as internet sites and primary sources "to examine the roots of the Middle East conflict." Students are asked to be able
to understand "why individuals and groups sometimes turn to tactics of terrorism."
Diego school district to create Muslim safe spaces, boost Islam lessons to combat bullying. Muslim safe spaces,
increased lessons on Islam during social studies classes, and other measures will be adopted by San Diego Unified School
District to combat bullying. The Council for American-Islamic Relations and school officials in southern California
collaborated on a "holistic" approach to bullying that will likely be implemented this fall. The changes, which include
adding Muslim holidays to school calendars, are the result of a study directed by the San Diego school board in July 2016.
"It's more of a comprehensive program, not just a curriculum," said Stan Anjan, the district's executive director of family
and community engagement, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Wednesday. "We're looking at it from a very integrated
and holistic approach."
and Eve' lesson gets teacher cast out of religious school. An argument over Adam and Eve between a city-paid
teacher and third-graders at a private Muslim school has landed the instructor in pedagogical purgatory, The [New York] Post
has learned. English teacher Nina Kossman committed the sin of "telling the truth," she said of her expulsion from the
Razi School in Woodside, Queens, which uses taxpayer-funded city Department of Education teachers in a federally-mandated
program for poor kids. Kossman infuriated parents by telling their children that Adam is "not real." She noted that
Judaism, Christianity and Islam share the myth, thinking it would "help build up tolerance" for other faiths.
Education Department Asked to Eliminate Lesson Plans on Islam. The Christian Action Network (CAN) says the U.S
Department of Education is funding an Islamic education program in America's public schools, in which students in grades 5
through 12 are taught the Islamic way of life in a way that crosses the line from academics to indoctrination. "'Access
Islam' is funded by the Department of Education and is being promoted on various websites," Martin Mawyer, president and
founder of CAN, tells Breitbart News. "So, PBS Learning Media is one of the websites that is promoting it. The
Smithsonian also promotes it, the Indiana Department of Education promotes it, and even the United Nations promotes
it." [Video clip]
group threatens Department of Ed over publicly funded 'Islamic indoctrination'. The U.S. Department of Education is funding an
"Access Islam" program on PBS LearningMedia that "is nothing more than indoctrinating students into Islamic religious beliefs, duties and action,"
according to Christian Action Network president Martin Mawyer. CAN sent a "Letter of Demand" to end the Islamic education program to both PBS
and the Education Department, and is threatening a federal lawsuit if they fail to take action.
from terrorist's perspective [is the] basis for [an] Iowa State assignment. 9/11 was bad. But let's
pretend it wasn't. That's the challenge some International Studies students at Iowa State University faced in an
assignment obtained by The College Fix. "Write a paper that gives a historical account of 911 from the perspective of
the terrorist network," the project rundown stated. "In other words, how might Al-Qaeda or a non-Western historian describe
what happened." Though the description acknowledges the terror attack was a "heinous action," it encourages students to
view the events "from other perspectives." The university defended the proposal for the 500-word minimum essay.
Amendment controversy brews over Texas high school's prayer room. A Texas high school's on-site prayer room — which
serves as a spot where Muslim students can pray — is stirring controversy. Liberty High School in Frisco established the room
in 2009, but Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is concerned that the room may be off-limits to students of other religious denominations.
He said in a letter Friday to the school district that any exclusion would be inconsistent with the First Amendment's protection of religious liberty.
Calls Criticism Of Muslim Prayers In School 'Hate Speech'. Brampton, Ontario Mayor Linda Jeffrey is dismissing critics
who object to Muslim students having Friday prayer sessions in public schools as purveyors of "misinformation and hateful speech."
Jeffrey was responding to critics in a letter she released Thursday as Toronto-area parents in the Peel District School Board are
preparing a full-scale protest on Saturday [3/11/2017] to demand that public schools not promote one religion over another.
The parents have organized a "Canada First" movement and plan a "Walk to Oppose Religion in Schools" this weekend at Celebration Square
near Square One in Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto. They are also opposed to the motion introduced by local Liberal Member of
Parliament Iqra Khalid that would ban "Islamophobia" and potentially make their protest subject to hate crimes legislation.
Criticizing Sharia is 'hate speech,' Georgetown
students say. Georgetown students protested a speech by Nonie Darwish, a Muslim woman who grew up in Egypt but
fled for the U.S. and Christianity, becoming an outspoken critic of Sharia. Calling Darwish "Islamophobic," students
demanded that her "hate speech" be censored, including the secretary of the GU College Republicans, who resigned in protest.
Professor Condones Rape And Slavery Under Sharia. In a lecture at the International Institute of Islamic Thought (a Muslim-Brotherhood-linked
group) and in subsequent questions and answers following his talk, Georgetown Islamic Studies professor Jonathan Brown, a convert to Islam, declares:
"It's not immoral for one human to own another human." He waxes poetic about the great life a slave has under sharia law (versus slavery under
white men in the South) without actually defining that life. Perhaps, as Clarion Project has done, he should get his information from a
Yazidi girl from Iraq.
are Teaching Islam but Banning Christianity: These Jersey Moms Want to Find Out Why. There's a new trend
in public school curriculum that, chances are, you know nothing about. If you think your kids are getting an unbiased
education and that all forms of religion are left out of the classroom, think again. Your child, like many others, may
be subjected to Islamic indoctrination. That's exactly what's happening in schools in New Jersey. But in one
small town, two moms are fighting back.
and Non-Consensual Sex OK, Says Muslim Georgetown Professor. That slavery and non-consensual sex can be okay is
not a sentiment you expect to hear from someone employed in politically correct academia — but it obviously is
acceptable when a politically correct kind of person says it. This appears the case with Georgetown Islamic Studies
professor Jonathan Brown, who stated in a recent talk that it's "not immoral for one human to own another human." A
39-year-old convert to Islam, Brown reportedly expressed the above beliefs in a Feb. 7 lecture at the International Institute
of Islamic Thought in Herndon, Virginia. Titled "Islam and the Problem of Slavery," the professor apparently believes
there's only a problem with slavery when it's not governed by Islam.
Pillars of Islam' worksheet for six-graders angers in South Carolina. A South Carolina elementary school is
under the microscope after a parent realized her six-grade child was tasked with a "Five Pillars of Islam" worksheet.
Alston Middle School in Summerville has a class called "Survey of Civilization," which includes lesson plans on different
religions, economies, and geographic regions. A local CBS affiliate was recently sent a classroom assignment that has
some parents angry that they weren't given more details beforehand.
School Parents Angry After Middle Schoolers Learn How Sharia Law Is Totally Awesome. A group of parents in
Southern Indiana has expressed alarm because their children in the local taxpayer-funded middle school are learning that
Sharia law is a delightful concept beloved by women forced to live under its yoke. The Sharia-related assignment at
issue is for seventh-grade students at Highland Hills Middle School, just north of Louisville, reports The Courier-Journal,
the main regional newspaper. The assignment provides a reading passage ostensibly written by a 20-year-old woman named
Ahlima who resides in Saudi Arabia.
University Launches Fellowships in Islamic Law to Influence U.S. Policy. Harvard Law School has announced the
launch of a series of paid fellowships for research on issues of Islamic law during the 2017-2018 academic year, aimed at
influencing public discourse and U.S. policy on Sharia. According to a recent email sent by the director of Harvard's
Islamic Legal Studies Program, Intisar Rabb, the launch of the new program comes "just in time" for the beginning of the
Trump administration and has the goal of "building a community of Islamic law scholars in the academy" as well as informing
"policy and media discourse about Islamic law."
lesson says Christians are treating Muslims harshly. A classroom assignment on Islam says one negative effect
of the Crusades is that Christians are still treating Muslims harshly. "I almost fell over," said Barbara Light.
Mrs. Light, of Westwood, New Jersey, was helping her 13-year-old daughter prepare for a World History test when she
discovered some rather shocking lessons. "The Christians' harsh treatment of Muslims in the Holy Land led to bitterness
that has lasted to the present," one worksheet stated. Another worksheet asks students to identify "one negative effect
of the Crusades that has continued to the present."
of Kansas opens women's only lunchroom as 'safe space' — for Muslims. At the conclusion of the
Student Senate meeting on Jan. 27, Diversity and Inclusion Director Omar Rana announced the creation of a women's lunchroom
in the Office of Multicultural Affairs. Room 102 of the OMA is available from noon to 1 p.m. on weekdays, mainly

University of Maryland students demand prayer rooms in every major building and ask that their names be kept from Donald
Trump. Muslim students at the University of Maryland are asking for prayer rooms to be built in every major campus
building as part of a lengthy list of demands to staff. They also want bus shuttle services to local mosques to be laid
on by the university and are asking for their names to be kept from President-elect Donald Trump if he creates a nationwide
Muslim registry. Their requests were among dozens issued by 'marginalized' students to the university's president last
month. In their request for prayer rooms, the students said it was difficult to access the current space provided and
often resorted to praying in stairwells as a result.
University Accommodates Muslim Prayer, but not Christian prayer. The University of Oklahoma has opened a new
reflection room to host Muslim students wishing to pray during the day, giving them a sense of belonging and welcome.
"Prayer is very important to me. It's my priority to pray on time every day," Maeen Alqohaif, a mechanical engineering
junior, told The Oklahoma Daily on Monday, December 5. "This room is very convenient because I come (to the library) to
study, and at the same time I don't have to go all the way home and pray. I can just pray here." Alqohaif used to
pray between the narrow bookshelves in a corner of the Bizzell Memorial Library. He later discovered a room on the
second floor of the library, which was implemented at the request of the Muslim Student Association.
Hate Spaces. On a November night in
2004, almost four hundred students at Columbia University sat crowded into the theater of the University's Lerner Hall to watch a troubling 25-minute film
that was finally being released to the public, "Columbia Unbecoming," produced by Dr. Charles Jacobs and Avi Goldwasser. The film, which exposed
instances of student intimidation at the hands of some professors in Columbia's department of Middle Eastern and Asian Languages and Culture (MEALAC), was
shocking, and revealed what many had already suspected about Columbia's program — and other Middle East studies programs elsewhere: that under the
veneer of purported scholarship and high-minded academic goals, there had developed a hothouse of intellectual rot, an entire area of academic study guided
by what Middle East scholar Martin Kramer has called "tenured incompetents."
as German primary school 'forces' children to chant 'Allahu Akbar' in Muslim prayer. Pupils at a primary school
were forced to chant "Allahu Akhbar" and "there is no God but Allah", an appalled father has claimed. The father of the
pupil at the girl's primary school in German ski resort Garmisch-Partenkirchen discovered that his daughter had been forced
to learn the Islamic prayer when he discovered a handout she had been given. He claimed she had been "forced" by
teachers to memorise the Islamic chants and forwarded the handout to Austrian news service unsertirol24.
parents may face trial after refusing mosque field trip. The prosecutor's office in Germany's Itzehoe is
reviewing whether or not the parents of a seventh grader may have to appear in court because they failed to pay a truancy
fine over a skipped field trip to a mosque. The 13-year-old student's parents refused to allow their son to join his
classmates on the June 14 school trip of this year to a mosque in the northern German town on Rendsburg, prosecutor Peter
Müller-Rakow said on Wednesday [10/26/2016]. The field trip was reportedly part of a geography lesson.

County parent complains about Islam curriculum, wants textbook change. A Sullivan County mother, upset about
the way Islam is taught in her child's school took her concerns to the board of education Monday night [10/3/2016].
Michelle Edmisten was the only parent to speak during public comment about how Islam is being taught in schools. She
pleaded with the board asking for an immediate change.
Middle schoolers will still be indoctrinated with Islam under "new" standards. In other words, they are hiding
the teaching of Islam under new headings like Asia and Africa. Areas of the world conquered by Islamic jihad and
terror. [...] Only the historical events that Muslim supremacists want to indoctrinate American children with make it into
the textbooks. Jihad, sharia, beheadings, stonings, honor killings and much more are never mentioned.
will still be taught in 7th grade under new draft standards. Students will continue to learn the origin and
central features of Islam in middle school under new draft standards proposed by the Tennessee State Board of
Education. The teachings of Islamic culture and history have been a subject of controversy among some parents across
the state and there has been a strong backlash to the standards as they were previously written due to what some described as
an effort to "indoctrinate students." But the changes to the standards for all grades, currently under review, are meant
to streamline the content teachers are expected to teach students in any given grade, said Laura Encalade, director of policy
Jersey 2nd Graders Taught: 'Allah loves those who make themselves clean'. The reality is, since 9/11, Americans
have had their liberties taken away, their incomes plundered to pay for wars and "homeland security" — that has
failed with deadly results as Muslims continue to slaughter Americans on American soil and public schools continue to subject
students to Islamic indoctrination at all levels. Most often by design and with intention.
2nd grade health class: 'Allah loves those who make themselves clean'. Barnegat father Chris Sharpe was
flabbergasted when his second-grade daughter showed him what her class has been studying in school. The Cecil S.
Collins School student recently showed Sharpe a school worksheet that quotes from the Quran about cleanliness and explains to
students how to keep up their appearance, including their traditional Muslim hijabs and thawbs, the Ashbury Park Press
reports. "Allah loves those who make themselves clean and pure," the worksheet reads.
Gives 2nd Graders Worksheets On Keeping Hijabs Clean. When a young girl came home from school in New Jersey,
her father was shocked at what she brought home as a worksheet. On it were instructions on how to keep hijabs (head
coverings for women in Islam) and thwabs (Muslim robes) clean and neat. There was also a quote from the Quran on the
printout: "Allah loves those who make themselves clean and pure." Chris was alarmed and furious over it as he
school health handouts: Allah loves cleanliness. The father of a second-grader in the Cecil S. Collins
School was alarmed to see references to hijabs and thawbs — clothing worn by religious Muslims — and a
quote from the Quran included in a health and hygiene worksheet given to his daughter. The worksheet included instruction
about cleanliness and neatness not just of shoes and clothing but of a student's hijab and thawb, an ankle-length robe-like
garment worn by Muslim men, according to pictures sent to the Asbury Park Press by Barnegat father Chris Sharpe. The
sheet also included a reference to a Quran quote that read "Allah loves those who make themselves clean and pure."
California University's Troubling Ties to Terrorism. San Francisco State University (SFSU), which has a
well-deserved reputation as a breeding ground for anti-Israel radicalism, became national news in April. That's when
campus police stood by as a hate-Israel group, the General Union of Palestinian Students (GUPS), shouted down and disrupted a
lecture by Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, prompting much criticism of SFSU's president, Leslie Wong. But there's
worse. As revealed by an investigation into SFSU by Campus Watch, a project of the Middle East Forum, SFSU has
partnered with a Palestinian university that's a hotbed of radicalization. What our investigation turned up: SFSU
signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with An-Najah University of Hebron in 2014 at the behest of Rabab Abdulhadi,
director of SFSU's Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas Initiative (AMED) and founding member of the US Campaign for
the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel.
furious after Catholic school teacher reads out sections of the KORAN before class prayers. Parents have been
left fuming after discovering a history and geography teacher has been reading excerpts of the Koran to their children at a
Catholic boy's high school. Jesse Pittard, who teaches both subjects at Christian Brothers' High School, in Lewisham in
Sydney's inner-west, has come under fire from parents for reading out sections of the Koran to his year seven students at the
start of the day during home room and before classes. Parents and students told Daily Mail Australia Mr Pittard began
reading excerpts to students at the beginning of the semester in July and claimed he has since read 'more than half' the
Koran to them.
for compulsory school Islam classes after axe attack. On Monday evening [7/19/2016], an attacker whom investigators
believe was a 17-year-old refugee from Afghanistan, seriously wounded four people with an axe and is reported to have shouted "Allahu
Akbar" (God is great) several times. Terror group Isis later released a video in which the youth made threats in Pashto while
holding a knife. Senior figures in the church had already called at the end of May for Islam classes to become compulsory at
schools. The head of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD), Heinrich Bedford-Strohm, said that religious education was the
best way to immunize Muslim youths against the dangers of Islamist fundamentalism.
Character Curious George Observes Ramadan. The beloved American children's book character Curious George is
breaking fast for Ramadan this year — with chocolate-covered bananas, of course. The just-released
children's book "It's Ramadan, Curious George" celebrates the Muslim holiday, teaching kids about the sacred month.
As The Most Logical. [Gun-free zones are] a classic example of the illogical being passed off as the most
logical. This is the "sweet spot" of American liberalism. It is how they have managed to keep the Bible out of
schools on a pretext to separation of church and state, yet allowed Muslims to pray on school grounds as a measure of
diversity. Why doesn't it work in the Christian's favor as well? Because that would be logical, but they promote
the illogical as the most logical.
Schools Teaching Students to Hate America As Left Appeases Muslims With 'Religious Literacy' Training. [Scroll
down] Americans might ask further: why are people who want to "fundamentally change" America running the country?
Indeed, those who have been educated to believe America is hateful will govern accordingly. American education is about
to take another leftward lurch from the Common Core standards, to the Advanced Placement U.S. History framework, and now with
the Advanced Placement European History (APEH) curriculum — which diminishes Christianity and ignores Islamic
conquests in Europe and Islam's tradition of jihad. "The almost complete excision of Islam's 1400-year violent
confrontation with Christendom also makes it almost impossible for students to understand that killings by modern jihadists
fall squarely within the historical tradition of Islamic war," David Randall, National Association of Scholars director of
communications and the author of a report on the APEH framework, told Breitbart News. "The jihadists actually
understand that history far better than students educated by APEH do."
Jihad Playground. The Muslim Students Association, founded by the radical Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood whose
stated purpose is to wage "grand jihad" on America, is active at the publicly funded University of Central Florida in
Orlando. The group defiantly brought un-indicted terror co-conspirator Siraj Wahhaj to campus. He's the black
Muslim convert and inflammatory imam tied by federal prosecutors to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and New York City
landmarks bombing plots. Wahhaj served as a character witness for convicted terror mastermind Omar Abdel Rahman (the
Blind Sheik), called for replacement of America's "constitutional government with a caliphate" and roots for our nation to
"crumble" so Muslims can take over.
At America's Worst University Praises Severing Thieves' Hands Under Sharia Law. At a panel discussion on Islam and
terrorism at Florida Atlantic University, a professor on the taxpayer-funded school's faculty praised the Sharia law practice of
cutting off the hands of criminals who steal. The words of wisdom concerning the notorious Islamic penal code came from
Bassem Al Halabi, an electrical engineering and computer science professor at Florida Atlantic University.
My Country Was of
Thee. We are a Christian culture. Or we were. Now all things Christian are fair game for ridicule, lawsuits,
physical attack. Not only are our school children being robbed of their opportunity to learn our Christian heritage, they are
being assaulted on one hand with anti-Christian teaching in many of their classes, followed by Islamic propaganda. The phrase
separation of church and state masquerades as a constitutional statement applicable only to Christian concepts. A student
entering public school from an un-churched family could complete his entire education and never hear the name of Christ, never know His
story, let alone His message. He'll know who Mohammed was, but not Jesus. This student, like our president, will have
no idea what made this country the greatest nation the world has ever seen.
Islamic Indoctrination in Our Public Schools? What if your child or grandchild's public school forced them to
write out the Shahada — the Islamic conversion creed — while "having skipped Christianity"? What
if your child's study guide had a section called "Origins of Islam" that included statements such as, "Around the age of 40,
the angel Gabriel told Muhammad that he was to be a prophet of Allah."? Stated as fact, not belief. Yet, according
to reports and numerous contacts to the ACLJ, that is exactly what is happening. In fact, children are being forced to
learn how to convert to Islam and recite that "Allah is the only God."
Teaching Creationism With Video From Islamic Sex Cult. Youngstown, Ohio, students are learning creationism in
school with materials from a Islamic, Holocaust-denying group accused of being a sex cult. A curriculum map recommends
teachers in this public school district show a creationist video, Cambrian Fossils and the Creation of Species, as part of
10th-grade science education. The video claims that the Cambrian Explosion "totally invalidates the theory of
evolution." The Cambrian Explosion was a time period, nearly 550 million years ago, where, over the next tens of millions of
years, the number of species on Earth experienced a (relatively) rapid expansion by evolutionary standards. Christian
creationists regularly point to this explosion of life as evidence for creation by God and against evolution. Blink and
you'd miss the Islamic connection in the video. A black screen flashes for less than one second that says "this film is
based on the works of Harun Yahya." In the right corner, there's a gold bubble that says, "Muhammad is the messenger of
Allah" in Arabic.
The Islamization of our (American) Schools. The Islamization of our Schools is a documentary film now in
production at the studios of PRB Films and the Christian Action Network. It is expected to be released this year.
From the producers of Europe's Last Stand: America's Final Warning and Homegrown Jihad, the new documentary film will
detail how Islamic education is infiltrating public schools and indoctrinating children into the Islamic faith. From
forcing students to declare that "Allah is the one true God" to requiring students to recite the "Five Pillars of Islamic
Faith," public school curricula and textbooks are becoming a source of outrage for concerned parents.
I Love Islam:
What Muslim-American children are being taught. What are Muslim-American children being taught in private
Islamic schools? We can learn about some of it by looking at the I Love Islam series used to teach
elementary-level Muslim-American children about Islam. This series consists of five textbooks, each with a
corresponding workbook and teacher/parent guide. It is published by the Islamic Services Foundation (ISF). According
to the introduction to the series, its purpose is to gradually introduce Muslim students "to the essentials of their faith" by
bringing "to light the historic and cultural aspects of Islam. And according to the ISF website, the I Love Islam
series "is one of the best-selling Islamic curriculums in the US and Canada. So what does this series teach?
This happened in France, but could soon happen here: Muslim
students at elite French university under fire for Hijab Day event. Students at an elite Paris university
sparked fierce debate Wednesday [4/20/2016] by inviting classmates to wear the Muslim head scarf for a day. The event at Paris's
Sciences Po university was held to raise awareness of treatment of women who wear the hijab, but the initiative was fiercely
criticised on social media and by student union representatives. The event was held in the wake of Prime Minister
Manuel Valls' controversial statement that he wished to ban all forms of religious headscarves at French universities.
Proposed School Voucher Program — Teaching Kids to Hate Infidels. [Scroll down] For the third
time the legislature has not passed this bill. So, it seems the will of the people is not to use their tax dollars to send
children to private schools. Maybe there's a good reason. [...] Had the school voucher bill passed in Tennessee, Anoor
Academy (Knoxville), Pleasant View School (Memphis) and Nashville International Academy (Nashville), would have been eligible to
receive voucher money. All three are private Islamic schools. All three are accredited by AdvancED, a regional accrediting
organization. Once they are accredited these schools get classified as "Category III" under the Tennessee State Board of
Education rules. Category III schools were eligible for vouchers under the proposed school voucher bill. In 2013, Anoor
Academy's promo video showed a row of the textbook What Islam Is All About. This book denigrates Jews and Christians and teaches
that the warlord Muhammed is the perfect example to follow. It also states that "there is no separation of Masjid and state," that
"Muslims dream of establishing the power of Islam in the world," and that living under sharia law is the preferred state for all humankind.
Group Objects to Muslim Prayer Spaces at University of Iowa. A litigious atheist organization known for its
lawsuits challenging Christian prayer and symbols in public spaces and Bibles in public schools is now voicing objection to
the designation of a Muslim prayer space at the University of Iowa (UI). The Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion
Foundation (FFRF) says it is "questioning the appropriateness" of the two prayer rooms created primarily for male and female
Muslim faculty and students at UI.
School District Removes Pork From Menus to Appease Muslims. As recently reported by ACT For America, The Kent,
Washington school district has changed their food options and removed all pork products, in order to accommodate Muslim
dietary needs according to a frustrated parent. Dave Brabo, a resident of Renton, Washington recently expressed his concerns
with the new policy to school officials. Specifically Mr. Brabo spoke with the school's Director of Nutritional Services,
Tom Ogg, who informed him that "he was well aware of the issues (and the slippery slope) with the changes to menu options due
to Muslim religious beliefs, but he said lots of Muslims had complained and threatened the school by reporting them to the
U.S. Department of Education." Mr. Brabo was told that if the school system doesn't "accommodate the Muslim dietary needs
that their federal and state funding would be cut or pulled." He was told that the school system may be doing this in
order to better accommodate incoming refugees.
Yet another reason to homeschool: New
York City teacher fined $300 for showing ISIS video. A New York City teacher was fined — not fired — as
punishment for showing a video of an ISIS beheading to a middle school class. A veteran teacher at the South Bronx Academy for Applied
Media says she mistakenly showed a video of an Islamic State beheading to her eighth grade class. She was fined $300, at the discretion
of an arbiter, while the City Department of Education pushed to fire her, according to a report from the New York Post. "This teacher
demonstrated a complete lack of judgment, and this incident betrayed our schools' promise to provide a safe and supportive environment,"
Department of Education spokeswoman Devora Kaye told the New York Post.
of Justice Enforcing Sharia in Public Schools. Criminalizing free speech is about to happen. Well, only if it
is construed as anti-Muslim, or anti-Islam. The Department of Justice is moving swiftly by implementing a new enforcement
effort that will follow up any investigations with possible prosecutions for what they say has been backlash to Muslims since
9/11, particularly Muslim Students in public schools. [...] Not only is Islam disproportionately represented in textbooks, it is
inappropriately instructed, including children repeating the Islamic profession of faith, the Shahada. There is no historical
value of children narrating the prayer that is recited when one converts to Islam. Most parents have stated they do not reject
students from learning about Islam, but it must be historically accurate, which it is not.
Announces New Effort to 'Promote Religious Freedom' in the Nation's Schools. Under the banner of civil rights
enforcement, the U.S. Justice Department plans to "promote religious freedom" in the nation's public schools by cracking down
on discrimination and bullying, especially as it may affect Muslims. The new enforcement effort announced on Tuesday will
"expand" DOJ's ability to investigate and prosecute complaints; lead community outreach; and develop guidance for federal prosecutors.
banned from daughter's graduation after objecting to Islam lessons. A former Marine is asking a judge to lift a no-trespass
order ahead of his daughter's graduation after her high school reportedly banned him from campus for objecting to classroom lessons about
Islam. "She's in the final semester of her senior year, and as it stands right now, she's going to have to go through that life
experience without her dad there," said Kate Oliveri, a lawyer from the Michigan-based Thomas More Law Center who is representing John
Kevin Wood and his family, The Washington Post reported.
and Schuster Launches Muslim Imprint for Children's Books. Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing announced the
launch of Salaam Reads, the first imprint at a major publisher focused on Muslim characters and stories. The imprint, which
takes its name from the Arabic word for "peace," plans to publish books for readers of all ages, including picture books, as
well as middle grade and YA titles. Salaam Reads will reside within the larger Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
imprint, led by publisher Justin Chanda and executive editor Zareen Jaffery, and aims to publish a minimum of nine titles per
year for all ages.
told to write essay on their conversion to Islam. British moms and dads were fuming after a school instructed students to write an essay
explaining why they had converted to Islam. Gemma Gough posted the assignment on Facebook[,] and said her child would not be completing the
assignment. "This is not acceptable," she wrote. "Kids are too impressionable and imagine if these letters got in the wrong hands in
years to come."
rips Islam school worksheet: 'My son will not be a part of this'. A California mother made it very clear her
son would not be describing the Five Pillars of Islam or listening to an Islamic call to prayer. Tara Cali posted a photo
of a worksheet on Facebook she says was handed out in her son's 7th grade history class. Titled, "Islamic Beliefs and
Practices," students were to list the Five Pillars of Islam and scan a QR code with a mobile phone or tablet, which would take
them to a YouTube video of "a call to prayer at the Blue Mosque in Istanbul." Cali was incensed by the lesson and made it
clear her son would not be completing it.
Dept of Education urges schools to teach Islam to 'create anti-bias learning environment'. As parents across
the country storm school board meetings over a perceived overemphasis on Islam in the curriculum, bureaucrats in Washington,
D.C. are suggesting ways teachers can focus more on the religion. A recent blog posted to Home Room, "The official blog
of the U.S. Department of Education," points out that terrorist attacks in Paris and California sparked anti-Muslim incidents
in schools and other places. Muslim students, and those perceived to be Muslim, could be bullied, and the government wants
teachers to know how to "create an anti-bias learning environment" by focusing specifically on those students and their faith.
The Islamization of American Schools.
Apparently American Muslims are not American. Oh, they may think they are, but this is evidently not the case. [...] They
want to be treated like everyone else. They say they don't wish to be treated differently than any other American. But is
this really true? Evidently not, at least far as the school administrators at the New York World School of Inquiry, in Rochester NY
are concerned. A request from a single Muslim student prompted Principal Sheela Webster to host a "World Hijab Day event the week of
February 1 which 'encouraged girls to wear the Muslim religious head covering.'" And what made "World Hijab Day" so much more
special — not a single parent was notified ahead of the event. They found out about it on the news, which being New York,
probably breathlessly reported on it, extolling the schools diversity and inclusion. In her defense, Principal Webster was just following
the lead of our federal Department of Education, which claims that these types of events will help combat Islamophobia by sharing "inspiring
examples like Walk a Mile in Her Hijab, whose goal is to spread awareness about Muslim cultural traditions and to combat anti-Muslim bias."
Reality TV: Obama at the Mosque. [Scroll down]
After 9-11, we saw an understandable movement in public schools and colleges to teach more about Islam and the Mideast. But we have now moved effectively to
advocacy. There is a politically correct force-feeding of Islamic values and beliefs, without critical evaluation or thinking. School curriculums
pretend there is no conflict between Islam, as practiced by the vast majority of Muslims around the world, and Western values, American culture, and U.S. laws.
school board mulls ban on classroom materials 'from terrorist groups'. [Scroll down] The policy proposal
comes amid public outrage in Tennessee and numerous other states over Islamic lessons many parents believe venture into
religious indoctrination. Many students, for example, are require to read, write and recite the Islamic conversion prayer,
pledging allegiance to Allah, EAGnews reports. Parents across Tennessee have repeatedly raised issues included in middle
school world history lessons, prompting heated discussions at school board meetings and a vow from state officials to review
standards ahead of schedule.
Hidden in Our Schools, While Muhammad Roams the Halls Freely. Jesus Christ has had to go into hiding in our
schools today, while Prophet Muhammad roams the halls freely. In the U.S., the media mocks those who make their
Christian practices public — such as praying for victims of terrorism or young people committing to abstain from
sexual relations until married. Yet that same media attacks those voicing concerns about terrorism's link to Islamic
beliefs as being Islamophobic. In America, we see a nation so intimidated by political correctness that people in
positions of responsibility make illogical decisions concerning the observation of a Christian holiday.
Public school forced my child to convert to Islam. A public high school has been accused of radical Islamic indoctrination by
forcing children to profess the Muslim statement of faith, ordering them to memorize the Five Pillars of Islam and teaching that the faith
of a Muslim is stronger than the average Christian, according to a federal lawsuit filed Wednesday [1/27/2016]. Thomas More Law Center
filed the lawsuit on behalf of John and Melissa Wood. They accuse La Plata High School in Maryland of subjecting their teenage
daughter to Islamic indoctrination and propaganda. And when Mr. Wood complained — the school banned him from campus.
California Public School Holds Hijab Day, Hilarity
Ensues. Thursday [1/29/2015] was Hijab Day at NP3 High School (Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep), a public charter school in Sacramento,
California. Predictably, the school responded to concerns over why a public school would be hosting such an event with charges that critics were
motivated by "hatred" and "bigotry." The whole episode became an illustration of how Islamic supremacists are manipulating politically correct,
multiculturalist pieties to advance their agenda.
Schoolgirls Forced to Wear Headscarves, "Ankles Must Be Covered" on School Trip to Denver Mosque. School girls at a Douglas County public school in
Colorado are being forced to cover up from head-to-toe to visit a mosque on a school mandated Common Core trip. There are no requirements to visit a Greek
Orthodox cathedral or synagogue. Here again we see that anywhere American law and Islamic law conflict, it is American law that has to give way.
The subjugation and oppression of women are enshrined under the sharia. Young school girls should not be forced to "respect" a dress code that represents
honor violence, female genital mutilation, forced marriage, child marriage, et al.
school district requires girls to cover ankles, wear head scarves on trip to mosque. A world religions class is taking a field
trip to a Denver mosque and the school is requiring girls to dress in what is described as a Sharia-complaint manner. KNUS radio host
Peter Boyles reports the Douglas County school system issued these rules to students in a notification to parents: [...] "Public schools are
forbidden from holding girls to different standards than boys," Boyles notes. "They're holding these girls to a different
standard — it's a religious reason. "Islam dictates many, I believe — personal belief — repressive
practices against women and Islamophobia will trump womens' rights. Animal rights every time, and the environment."
In England: UK Muslim School Fails
Inspection Over Pro-Stoning Books. A Muslim school in the UK failed governmental inspections after textbooks endorsing death by stoning
and gender inequality were found in the school library, according to The Daily Mail. Three books which "undermine the active promotion of the rule
of British law and respect for other people" were reportedly found by the inspectors at Jamiatul Ummah School in East London. The school is a
fee-paying, all-boys secondary school.
Waterbury schools to respect Muslim holidays.
Starting next fall, all schools in the Waterbury School District will be honoring two of the Muslim religion's most holy days by not scheduling tests,
field trips or major school events on those days. It started with more than 300 signatures on a petition and has come full circle. Thursday
night [2/5/2015], the Waterbury Board of Education voted to honor two Muslim holy days. Fahd Syed says he is happy because his children won't
have to choose between education and religion.
New York City Adds Two
Muslim Holy Days to Public School Calendar. New York will become the nation's first major metropolis to close its public schools in observance
of the two most sacred Muslim holy days, Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Wednesday [3/4/2015], a watershed moment for a group that has endured suspicion and
hostility since the Sept. 11 attacks. Several municipalities across the country — including in Massachusetts, Michigan and New
Jersey — have moved in recent years to include the holy days, Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha, in their school calendars. But New York City,
with its 1.1 million schoolchildren, dwarfs the others in its size and symbolism.
some US districts are adding Muslim holidays to the school calendar. An affluent school district in suburban Maryland has become the
latest district to recognize Muslim holidays on its calendar, a move that reflects a growing push for greater inclusiveness in schools across the
United States. Howard County, which is home to many of the wealthiest communities in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area, announced
Thursday [1/14/2016] that it would expand its list of religious and cultural holidays.
professor suspended after wearing hijab. A tenured professor at Wheaton College was put on administrative leave
after she wore a traditional headscarf as part of her Christmas Advent devotion and said she was doing it in solidarity with Muslims.
College says view of Islam, not hijab, got Christian teacher suspended. If Wheaton College professor Larycia Hawkins had simply donned a
headscarf to support her Muslim neighbors without explaining herself, she still might be administering final exams this week. [...] "I stand in religious
solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book," she posted Dec. 10 on Facebook. "And as Pope Francis stated
last week, we worship the same God." That explanation rankled some evangelical Christians, who read her statement as a conflation of Christian and Muslim
theology, even if they supported her symbolic gesture.
The Editor says...
If Allah exists at all, he was, like everything and everybody else, created by God. Allah and God are not equivalent.
Islam and Christianity are neither equivalent nor compatible. Anyone who claims to be a Christian has no business celebrating, excusing,
or supporting Islam.
at Christian college who wore hijab in 'solidarity' with Muslims leaves school. A political science professor from Wheaton College, a small Christian school
outside of Chicago, who wore a hijab to proclaim her "solidarity" with Muslims, has "found a mutual place of resolution and reconciliation" with the school and the two will
part ways. Larycia Hawkins also said that her gesture was an acknowledgment that Muslims and Christians worship the same god. After recommending that she be
fired, the college's Provost withdrew his request and turned the matter over to the college president who reached the confidential agreement with Hawkins that has led to
her leaving the school without being fired.
Public schools struggle with lessons
about Islam amid renewed fears of terrorism. In 1963, the Supreme Court ruled that it was unconstitutional for a
Pennsylvania school to read 10 Bible verses to students each morning, without comment or context, and to make the students recite
the Lord's Prayer. (The case was brought by a family of Unitarians.) But in Justice Tom C. Clark's opinion, he
wrote that "one's education is not complete without a study of comparative religion or the history of religion and its relationship to the
advancement of civilization." The key, he said, was presenting religion "objectively as part of a secular program of education."
county cancels classes Friday over Islam lesson backlash. A Virginia county shut down schools Friday [12/18/2015] amid security concerns after
parents loudly objected to a world geography lesson that including a teaching on Islam. Augusta County school district officials first held a meeting
with upset parents on December 11. Four days later, the same day FoxNews.com covered the story, school officials held another meeting, during
which some parents demanded the teacher be fired. On Thursday [12/17/2015], School Board President Eric Bond announced the decision to cancel the
next day's classes.
County schools closed Friday after parental outrage over Arabic assignment. The controversy stems from a homework assignment at Riverheads
High School that some parents called Islamic indoctrination. Kimberly Herndon said she felt her rights as a parent had been violated when her ninth
grade son came home with the assignment. "It asked him to copy the Shahada, the Islamic statement of faith which translates to "there is no god but
Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah," said Herndon. The assignment said it is meant to give the students, "an idea of the artistic
complexity of calligraphy."
Outrage Over 'Muslim Indoctrination' Assignment Leads To Schools Closure. Augusta County Public Schools in
Virginia are closed Friday [12/18/2015,] after parents objected to a ninth grade geography assignment that required students
to copy the Shahada, an Islamic statement of faith that says, "There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of
Allah." Kimberly Herndon said she was "shocked that this was sent home, shocked that this was in the schools [and] shocked
that this was right here in our small town," reports WHSV.com. Herndon added she felt her rights as a parent had been violated.
outrage after Virginia high school students are asked to practice calligraphy by writing 'There is no god but
Allah'. A lesson in calligraphy has caused an uproar among some parents at a Virginia high school when students
were instructed to write a Muslim statement of faith that read: 'There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of
Allah.' The incident took place on Friday during a world geography class at Riverheads High School in Staunton. The
lesson of the day focused on world religions, among them Islam. As part of the assignment, social studies teacher Cheryl LaPorte
had her ninth-grade students copy a piece of Arabic text known as the shahada, which is the most common Islamic creed.
practice calligraphy by writing "There is no god but Allah". A Virginia school district is defending a
classroom assignment that required students to practice calligraphy by writing the Muslim statement of faith, "There is no
god but Allah. Muhammad is the messenger of Allah." Female students at Riverheads High School in Augusta County,
Virginia, were also invited to wear Muslim clothing — a story first reported by The Schilling Show. The school
district convened a meeting on Dec. 11th to discuss the assignment with outraged parents.
prayer room at Catholic high school in Michigan sparks debate. Some parents outside Detroit were questioning a
Catholic high school's decision to allow a special room for Muslim students to pray, Fox 2 reported Wednesday [12/16/2015].
Brother Rice High School, an all-boys school in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, reportedly granted a request from Muslim students to use the
religious reflection room throughout the day. Roughly a dozen of the school's 800-plus students are Muslim, according to WXYZ.
One unnamed parent told the news station the room was "unconscionable," arguing that her son's paid Catholic education would be "undermined."
at Christian college wearing hijab during Advent. Larycia Hawkins is a political science professor at Wheaton
College, a Christian college in Illinois. On Thursday [12/10/2015], she announced on her Facebook page that she will wear a
hijab throughout Advent as a symbol of solidarity with Muslims. She plans to wear it everywhere: to work, to class, to
church, and on the plane ride home for the Christmas holiday.
sing "Allah Akbar" at holiday concert. Nothing says Merry Christmas like a Ramadan song — at least
in Blaine, Minnesota. There was a big controversy after Thursday's [12/17/2015] holiday concert at the local high
school — when the teenagers belted out a praise song to Allah.
Question Choice To Sing 'Allahu Akbar' At Holiday Concert. Some parents in the Anoka-Hennepin School District
are questioning a choir teacher's decision to use a song about Ramadan performed in Arabic at a holiday concert. At
Thursday night's [12/17/2015] concert at Blaine High School, one of the songs students will be singing includes Arabic words,
including the phrase "Allahu Akbar," which means "God is great."
sing praise to Allah, create propaganda posters for ISIS. Are American public schools on the verge of becoming taxpayer-funded
Madrassas? In 2001 the founder of the Institute on Religious and Civic Values boasted about a covert plan to conduct a "bloodless"
revolution inside American public classrooms — promoting an increased emphasis on the Islamic faith.
CA 7th graders sing Islam 'fight song'
penned by teacher. Parents recently voiced their concerns to the Ocean View School Board about a song a seventh-grade
teacher authored about Islam that they believe is inappropriate. Nichole Negron and her mother Susan Negron told school board members
Nichole's seventh grade son came home from Spring View Middle School recently with a song his teacher passed out in class about Islam.
of Minnesota Rejects 9/11 Remembrance Because it Might Incite Racism. Here's another instance of political
correctness on a college campus going a smidge too far, courtesy of the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities: A proposed
resolution to recognize the 9/11 terrorist attacks on campus each year was rejected by the Minnesota Student Association as
it may potentially violate a "safe space" on campus.
Maryland's largest school district closes
for Muslim holiday. Striking a blow for "fairness," Maryland's largest school district will be closed for a Muslim holiday next
fall. The Montgomery County Board of Education voted 6-2 Tuesday [11/10/2015] to cancel classes on the Islamic holy day of Eid al-Adha
next school year. More than 156,000 students are enrolled in the suburban Washington, D.C. district, according to Fox Baltimore.
It will likely fall on Monday, September 12.
District Outlaws Depiction Of 'any religious leader' After Mom Protests Muhammad Drawing. A school district
superintendent in semi-rural Southern California has completely outlawed all drawings of all religious leaders on campus
because a history teacher assigned a vocabulary worksheet that asked students to draw images of Muhammad. [...] The
seventh-grade history assignment at High Desert School in Acton, Calif. was a worksheet called "Vocabulary Pictures: The Rise
of Islam." It featured several words including Quran, Mecca, Bedouins and Muhammad. There was space for students
to sketch their own images representing the various words.

In addition to teaching about Islam, does the same school also teach the history and characteristics of other religions?
Islam and 9/11 Not Connected,
12-Year-Olds Taught in America. Parents in Illinois are outraged that a public school there is painting a positive picture of Islam
and teaching impressionable young students that Islam bears no responsibility for the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States. This is
just the latest incident demonstrating a growing trend in American education to portray the intolerant, slavery-sanctioning, woman-oppressing,
genocidal, and relentlessly expansionist Religion of Peace as a misunderstood force for good or as just another world religion, no better or worse
than the others.
Islamic Schools Teaching Homegrown Hate. The Washington Post on Monday [2/25/2002] revealed that one such school
outside Washington, D.C., uses textbooks teaching 11th graders that "the Day of Judgment can't come until Jesus Christ returns
to Earth, breaks the cross and converts everyone to Islam, and until Muslims start attacking Jews." Other accredited
Islamic schools in America have world maps on classroom walls that exclude Israel. Some such schools promote class
discussions that portray Usama bin Laden as "simply the victim of ... prejudice" against all Muslims in America.
Third Grade event in Ithaca (NY) — Controversy not going away. A storm of controversy erupted when the Ithaca, NY,
chapter of Jewish Voice for Peace brought Palestinian activist Bassem Tamimi to a third grade class. Tamimi is best known for the viral
videos and photos he creates by sending children, including his own, to confront Israeli soldiers. Tamimi, who argues that it is the
"duty" of children to engage in acts of resistance, was on a now-concluded U.S. national tour co-sponsored by JVP and the Chicago branch
of Amnesty International.
In Australia: Muslim
children walk out when national anthem is sung. A Victorian primary school has been criticised for allowing Muslim children to
walk out of assembly while the national anthem was sung. Cranbourne Carlisle Primary School says a religious month of mourning is the
reason Islamic children are able to opt out of singing or listening to the anthem. Lorraine McCurdy, who has two grandchildren at the
school, told 3AW she was furious when school officials invited students to leave during Advance Australia Fair. "Two children got up
and said 'welcome to our assembly' with that a teacher came forward and said all those who feel it's against their culture may leave the room,"
Ms McCurdy said.
Removed From Wichita State Chapel to Retrofit It for Islam. It isn't only in occupied Sweden that liberal
dhimmis want to alter Christian churches so as to adapt them for Islam. It is even happening in Kansas. [...] Those who don't
like it have been loudly found guilty of "Islamophobia." The next step will be to decorate the "faith-neutral space" with
crescent moons and Arabic squiggles.
fury as university renovates chapel to accommodate Muslims. A decision to make a university's chapel "faith neutral" to
accommodate Muslim students has created great angst in the nation's Heartland after critics were accused of being Islamophobic. Last
May, Wichita State University ordered workers to remove all the pews and an altar inside the Harvey D. Grace Memorial Chapel. The
pews were ripped from the floor and replaced with portable chairs to make room for Muslim prayer rugs.
public schools close for Muslim holidays? Public schools in the US close in observance of Christian holidays
including Christmas and Easter, and now other religious denominations are asking for their holidays to be respected, too.
This Thursday [9/24/2015] is Eid al-Adha, or Feast of the Sacrifice, one of the biggest holidays of the year for Muslims,
and school administrators must decide whether or not to close school for the day. In New Jersey, where almost
2 percent of the population identifies as Muslim, several school districts have recognized Islam's holidays for
years, reports NorthJersey.com. But some are holding back.
accused of Islamic indoctrination. Maury County, Tennessee is in the heart of the Bible Belt. So it's
understandable why the local church ladies got all shook up when they discovered that school children had been forced to
declare, "There is no God but Allah." Seventh graders at Spring Hill Middle School spent three weeks covering Islam
in a Social Studies class — enraging some parents who say the lessons crossed the line into indoctrination and
proselytization. "I am not pleased that my 12-year-old was taught the Islamic conversion prayer," parent Brandee
Porterfield told me.
Graders In Tennessee Made To Recite 'Allah Is The Only God' In Public School. Middle school parents in
Tennessee are up in arms on learning that their children were instructed to recite and write, "Allah is the only god," as
part of a world history project. In the Maury County School District, students were assigned a Five Pillars of Islam
project that included the translation of the pillar of "Shahada" as being, "There is no god but Allah; Muhammad is his
prophet." Joy Ellis, the mother of a seventh-grader at Spring Hill Middle School, said that Christian children should not
be instructed to write the Shahada. "This is a seventh grade state standard, and will be on the TCAP," Ellis said.
Why Does Common Core Require Teaching
Islam? Should parents be penalized for demanding that their child be exempted from the required teaching of
Islamic in Common Core curriculum? Should a teach or public school administrator penalize parents and children for
seeking exemption? Parents are finding out the answers to these questions first hand. To date, public school
students are required to: • Attend public school-sponsored trips to mosques, which also require
non-Muslim girls to wear head scarves • Question if the Holocaust was "merely a political scheme
created to influence public emotion and gain" • Learn Islamic indoctrination via vocabulary lessons,
and world history (from an Islamic perspective), including the five pillars of Islam • Pledge
allegiance to the flag in Arabic • Have school days off for "Muslim holy days" •
Proselytize to younger school children by creating a pamphlet about Islam to "introduce Islam to 3rd graders" by
describing Allah as the same God of Christians and Jews • Recite in class the Shahada ("There is No
God but Allah") and kneel and learn to pray the Muslim call to prayer
fear Islamic 'indoctrination' in schools. Tennessee seventh-graders spend a portion of their time in a world
history course studying "the world of Islam." The amount of time spent on the topic, and what students are actually
learning during that time, has some lawmakers and parents in an uproar and the state planning to review standards.
"There is a big difference between education and indoctrination," U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., said in a
statement issued Thursday [9/10/2015]. "It is reprehensible that our school system has exhibited this double-standard,
more concerned with teaching the practices of Islam than the history of Christianity. Tennessee parents have a right to
be outraged and I stand by them in this fight."
Media Mocks Texas Seniors Peacefully Protesting Arabic Immersion School Opening. Progressive media ridiculed a
handful of harmless middle aged and senior citizens peacefully protesting outside the gates of the nation's first Arabic
Immersion Magnet School in the Houston Independent School District (ISD). The Arabic immersion school opened yesterday
[8/24/2015] for 132 pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students. The protest group numbered about 30 people, at its
height. They waved American and Israeli flags in solidarity of Western and Judeo-Christian values.
The Editor says...
Presumably, an English-only school would be met with a news media frenzy and a series of picket lines and indignant politicians. But as long as it's just
Arabic, which will facilitate and abet those who are bent on forcible domination of the world, everything's okay. Hey, what about that baseball game last night?
Man, what a catch!
Obama Praises Moves to Recognize Eid as Holiday. President Barack Obama on Thursday
[7/16/2015] wished Muslims in America and around the world "Eid Mubarak!" or a blessed Eid, praising
efforts to recognize the end of Ramadan as a holiday. "The holiday is a reminder to every
American of the importance of respecting those of all faiths and beliefs," he said in a statement
that also hailed New York City's decision to add Eid to the official school calendar.
Staff Trained On Islam, Bows To Allah At Local Mosque On Taxpayer Dime. Approximately
50 teachers and officials from Pennsylvania's recently gathered at a taxpayer-funded workshop during
church services at a local Baptist church to learn about the problems Christian children face in
today's secular educational environment. No, wait. Scratch that. That didn't happen.
That's totally wrong. Instead, approximately 50 teachers and staffers in the town of Lebanon, Pa.
attended a workshop at a local mosque to learn all about Islam and Arab culture, EAGnews.org reports.
The workshop occurred on Monday [6/8/2015]. It was, indeed, funded by taxpayers. Lebanon School
District superintendent Marianne T. Bartley was among the school officials on hand.
University Sides With Islamists Against Feminist Speaker. Duke University's mission
statement says it is dedicated to "promot[ing] an intellectual environment built on a commitment to
free and open inquiry." Yet when Asra Nomani, a journalist and author of two books, came to speak on
"The Paradox of Women in Islam," the university almost rescinded her invitation. The Muslim Students
Association sent an email smearing her as a friend of "Islamophobes" and discouraged students from attending.
principal cancels Muslim event, apologizes. It was pitched as an event that would "celebrate diversity" —
students would wear a headscarf for a day to get a taste of Islamic culture. It backfired. Mason High School canceled "A
Covered Girl Challenge," and principal Mindy McCarty-Stewart sent an apology Thursday [4/16/2015] to district families.
Writing Assignment: 'Pretend You Are a Muslim'. High school students in Wisconsin were
asked to pretend that they were Muslims for a 10th grade World History writing assignment. Union
Grove High School teacher Beth Urban asked students to write a five paragraph essay in which they pretend
they are a Muslim male or female in the U.S. "Give three examples of what you do daily for your
religion and any struggles you face," Urban instructed. The assignment has some questioning why
this is part of a World History class and also if similar assignments were given for other religions.
Core ties to Libya, Qatar, Saudi Arabia. "Where did Common Core come from?" is a
question I often hear from parents as I travel the country speaking about the Islamic infiltration
of America. Because in 2014-15 America, public school students via Common Core are:
• Participating in public school-sponsored trips to mosques via taxpayer expense, girls
must wear head scarves (Colorado parents complain) • Debating whether or not
the Holocaust was "merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain," (an
eighth-grade assignment defended by the Rialto Unified School District, Los Angeles)
• Pledging allegiance in Arabic (New York) • Observing two
"Muslim holy days," (New York City) • Being taught Islamic vocabulary lessons
(North Carolina) • Being taught Islamic culture (Tennessee) •
Being taught world history from Islamic perspective (Florida) that includes learning about
the five pillars of Islam (Maryland father, a Marine Corps veteran, complains and is banned from
school grounds) • Told to proselytize by creating a pamphlet about Islam to
"introduce Islam to 3rd graders" that introduces Allah to children as the same God of the Christians
and Jews (Michigan) • Reciting in class the Shahada, "There is No God but
Allah," and the Muslim call to prayer (Massachusetts)
Core Islamic Indoctrination Textbook Has Floridians Outraged. Common Core Islamic
indoctrination of students in American schools is overt. This is the goal. In Volusia County
Florida, hundreds are protesting the ode to Islam that is "World History," a Common Core approved
high school history textbook. With an entire chapter dedicated to the virtues of Islam, and not a
single chapter for Christianity, the textbook has Floridians in a frenzy. And who is the biggest
pusher of Common Cores besides leftist progressives? The Islamic Society of North America, another
Muslim Brotherhood front group, along with Hamas-CAIR; and in Florida, Hamas-CAIR is on the offensive.
County, TN Schools Ban Christianity and TEACH Islam. Julie West, founder of Parents

nation under Allah: Fury after school recites pledge in Arabic. Students at Pine Bush
High School in Pine Bush, New York, knew right away there was something not quite right about the
Pledge of Allegiance. That's because the pledge was being recited in Arabic. "One nation
under Allah," the student body president announced over the intercom system on Wednesday
[3/18/2015]. Reaction in the upstate New York high school was swift, and so was the backlash,
The Times Herald-Record reports. Furious students tried to shout down the recitation in their
classrooms. Other students sat down in protest.
Accredits Nation's First Muslim College ... Founded By Jihadists. The same California
college board that accredited Stanford and Berkeley has certified the nation's first Muslim college
in what the left is cheering as a breakthrough for diversity. In fact, it's a breakthrough for
jihadism. The Western Association of Schools and Colleges last week officially —
and naively — recognized Zaytuna College, making the Islamist school eligible to receive
federal grants and accept foreign Muslim students on visas. But before liberals celebrate too
loudly, they should know that Zaytuna was founded by pro-jihadists who hate America and Jews and
want to turn America into an Islamic state.
Muslim College in US to Gain Accreditation. The Western Association of Schools and
Colleges has bestowed "initial accreditation" on Zaytuna College, a Muslim institution in Berkeley,
California, making it the first accredited Muslim college in the nation. The association will
permit the college to offer an accredited "Bachelor of Arts in Islamic Law and Theology," according
to the College Fix.
York City schools will close for Muslim Eid holidays. New York City will recognize
Muslim holidays Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha on the official school calendar starting in September,
Mayor de Blasio and Chancellor Carmen Fariña said Wednesday [3/4/2015]. In the upcoming
2015-2016 school year, schools will close Sept. 24 for Eid al-Adha so that thousands of Muslim
families in the city can observe the day, de Blasio said. Eid al-Fitr, which falls during the
summer, will be designated a holiday for kids attending summer school.
father furious at school lesson: 'Muhammad is the messenger of God'. Ron Wagner, a
Florida father, said his son's world history book has gone too far with a lesson that teaches
Muhammad is the messenger of God. One part of the book, for instance, reads: "There is
no god, but God. Muhammad is the messenger of God," he said, quoting from his son's Lyman High
School history book, WFTV reported. "Students were instructed to recite this prayer as the first
Pillar of Islam, off of the board at the teacher's instruction," Mr. Wagner said. "For it to be
mandatory and part of the curriculum and in the textbooks, didn't seem right."
protests Islamic lessons at school. Ron Wagner read from part of his son's world history book, "There
is no god, but God. Muhamad is the messenger of God." Wagner is not reading the Five Pillars of Islam
from the Quran, but rather his son's 10th-grade world history book from Lyman High School. "Students were instructed
to recite this prayer as the first Pillar of Islam, off of the board at the teacher's instruction," Wagner claims.
Islamic Indoctrination Being Taught in LA Public Schools? Concerns have arisen over
the perceived teaching of Islam in California's seventh grade school curriculum. Questions have been
raised as to whether the education within these classrooms are merely teaching about Islam or
preaching the faith, in what many now view as a scandal of indoctrination of youth.
Day at NP3 High School. A Jihad Watch reader in the Sacramento area has sent me [a]
flier, showing that today is NP3 Hijab Day at NP3 High School. NP3 stands for Natomas Pacific
Pathways Prep; the school is in the Natomas Unified School District in Sacramento. This all
started with a student at NP3 High who is an intern for the Hamas-linked terror organization the
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). This student gave a presentation about Islamophobia
and Islam at what was a mandatory staff meeting that also included an official CAIR representative.
The school then now [sic] decided to sponsor an official "Hijab Day" in cooperation with Hamas-linked CAIR.
The flier also shows that another Muslim Brotherhood-linked organization, the Muslim Students Association,
is also involved.
Muslim call to prayer to
sound at Duke University. A weekly call to prayer for Muslims will be heard at Duke University starting
Friday [1/16/2015], school officials said. Members of the Duke Muslim Students Association will chant the call,
known as adhan or azan, from the Duke Chapel bell tower each Friday at 1 p.m. The call to prayer will last
about three minutes and be "moderately amplified," officials said in a statement Tuesday [1/13/2015].
The Editor says...
"Moderately amplified," at first. Then the volume will probably go up half a decibel every week.
Muslims know all about boiled frogs. These things have to be introduced gradually.
backs down, cancels Muslim call to prayer from chapel tower. Duke University has
abandoned its plan to transform the bell tower on the Methodist school's neo-gothic cathedral into a
minaret where the Muslim call to prayer was to be publicly broadcast. "Duke remains committed to
fostering an inclusive, tolerant and welcoming campus for all of its students," university spokesman
Michael Schoenfeld said in a statement. "However, it was clear that what was conceived as an
effort to unify was not having the intended effect."
Prayer Call from Duke Chapel Cancelled Within 48 Hours of Announcement. Duke University has abandoned
its plan to transform the bell tower on the Methodist school's neo-gothic cathedral into a minaret where the Muslim
call to prayer was to be publicly broadcast. "Duke remains committed to fostering an inclusive, tolerant and
welcoming campus for all of its students," university spokesman Michael Schoenfeld said in a statement.
"However, it was clear that what was conceived as an effort to unify was not having the intended effect."
The Editor asks...
What was the intended effect, if not the popularization (the endorsement) of Islam?
Bell Tower to Minaret and Back Again. Supposedly Duke University thought turning the
majestically Gothic bell tower of famous Duke Chapel into an Islamic minaret for every Friday call
to prayer, heralded as "interreligious reimagining of a university icon," would be non-controversial.
But the bow to campus multiculturalist ideology, thanks to nationwide publicity, barely lasted 24 hours.
A campus spokesman curtly announced that what had been intended as unifying had become undesirably divisive.
So the Muslim student group, which serves the five percent of Duke students said to be from Islamic backgrounds,
will continue to worship in the chapel basement and will issue prayer calls outside the chapel instead.
Bureaucrats At Duke Plotted Broadcast Of Islamic Prayer Calls From Iconic Bell Tower.
That plan was rescinded at the last minute after massive public outrage. But wait! There's so much
more! An impressively thorough investigation in The Chronicle, Duke's student newspaper, shows that
employees of Duke Chapel's Christian and interfaith ministries came up with the idea to transmit the Islamic
call to prayer on the campus. The Christian-hatched plan was formulated back in September because,
advocates for the sounding of the Muslim prayer call proclaimed, the stately Duke Chapel has traditionally
accommodated events for a diverse array of religious groups and student groups.
Allah in our
schools. Jihad, in its many guises and forms, is being waged across America. No aspect
of our society has been untouched by this relentless attack. Including our schools. Our education
system has been infiltrated by the enemy, as the next generation of Americans is brainwashed with
white-washed Islam. The assault is coming from all directions and it never sleeps.
Core Vocabulary Teaches About Mohammed and Islam. Farmville, North Carolina has given
their high school seniors Commonc Core aligned lessons on Prophet Mohammed and Islam. Some parents
and students would like to know why. "It really caught me off guard," a Farmville Central High

talk about any other religions in school — how is this appropriate?"

School Teacher Distributes Nation of Islam Racist Handouts For Third Grade Instruction. You only need to
read the following paragraph to spot the intents and motives of the third grade teacher for Harold McCormick Elementary
School teacher in Elizabethton, Tennessee: "The teacher also told Sommer [parent] that her son was not supposed
to take the Nation of Islam handout home. It was supposed to stay in the classroom. That bit of news caused her
great alarm." [...] Yes, one can see how a parent of a third grader might take exception to such classroom instructional
materials provided by the Nation of Islam. But the sunlight brought by a parent to media reporter Todd Starnes has
created an even worse situation for the school, the administration thereof, and the school superintendent et al.

controversial Islamist Ennahda Movement, is scheduled to head a lecture Tuesday afternoon [9/26/2014] [at] Yale's Law School, according to
the school's website. Al-Ghannouchi's upcoming appearance at the Ivy League school could become controversial given the sheik's
longtime support for radical terror groups and his past calls for Muslims to wage "unceasing war against the Americans."

an alleged plot by religious hard-liners to seize control of governing bodies has admitted that
there was a campaign to install Muslims in leading roles at schools in Birmingham. Nearly
20 schools in the city are currently being investigated over claims that male and female pupils
were segregated, sex education banned and extremist clerics praised in assemblies.
lie and wives must have sex or go to hell, Trojan Horse pupils told. Children were
taught that all Christians are liars and attempts were made to introduce Sharia law in classrooms as
part of an alleged 'Trojan Horse' takeover plot of Birmingham schools, an inquiry has found.
The inquiry commissioned by Birmingham City Council found evidence of religious extremism in 13 schools
as school governors and teachers tried to promote and enforce radical Islamic values. Schools put
up posters warning children that if they didn't pray they would "go to hell", Christmas was cancelled
and girls were taught that women who refused to have sex with their husbands would be "punished" by
angels "from dusk to dawn".
Islamization of American Public Schools. Endless concessions and accommodations to
Islamic demands only give way to more demands for even more Islam, as shown in the recent blockbuster
revelations of an Islamic takeover of UK public schools. What is less well known is the same kinds
of things are happening here in the United States. So outrageous were the allegations that the
usually subdued and sharia-compliant British authorities initiated an investigation into the charges
that devout Muslims covertly sought to "Islamize" the public schools in the UK. The bombshell
was dropped last month in a leaked letter, describing an operation purportedly named "Trojan Horse."
An Exercise in Indoctrination: Cal Professor Requires
Students to Tweet about 'Islamophobia'. A University of California, Berkeley professor is requiring 100 students to create Twitter
accounts and post comments about "Islamophobia," anti-Islamist Muslim activist Tarek Fatah reports. In his Toronto Sun column
Wednesday [2/5/2014], Fatah, a founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress, describes the "panicked message" he received from a Berkeley student
taking a class taught by Hatem Bazian. Bazian directs the school's Islamophobia Research and Documentation Project.
The next five items pertain to England, but they serve as a warning to all: Children
of 8 are 'racist' if they miss Islam trip: School's threatening letter to parents is met with outrage. Parents were
ordered to send their children to a workshop on Islam or have them labelled as racist for the rest of their school career. They
were sent a letter warning that the primary school pupils would have a 'racial discrimination note' put on their records if they did
not go. Families were told to pay £5 per child for the Explore Islam trip next Wednesday [11/27/2013] to Staffordshire
University, which would involve Year 4 and Year 6 children being shown Islamic artefacts.
Liberal Preferences Meet Islamic Principles. There was a recent scandal that, as much as anything else,
illustrates the intellectual emptiness and moral ennui of the modern liberal man. It occurred in Britain but
reflects a wider phenomenon; what can be said about it can be said about happenings in Sweden, France, Holland, Canada
or Belgium — or the United States. It was discovered recently that Muslims in seven London schools were
indoctrinating children with Islamic propaganda, ignoring Western culture and refusing to inculcate the "British values"
of the moment. The situation was such that all of one school's library books were in Arabic and many students
couldn't tell investigators whether they should follow British or Sharia law or which was more important. And
one of these schools, mind you, was a state-run Church of England institution — that happens to now be
upwards of 80 percent Muslim.
Head teachers raise 'serious concerns' over Islamic school
take-over. Schools across Britain are likely to have been targeted in an alleged Islamist
plot to take over classrooms, head teachers have warned. The National Association of Head Teachers
said it had found "concerted efforts" to infiltrate at least six schools in Birmingham. But the
union also said that the scandal had "connections" to other large cities.
'Cover-up' by UK schools in
alleged Muslim takeover plot. Schools involved in an alleged plot to impose conservative Muslim teaching on pupils across
Britain's second city sought to deflect scrutiny by putting on hastily arranged "shows of cultural inclusivity", officials said Monday
[6/9/2014]. One school in Birmingham arranged an assembly on Easter and a lesson on Christianity especially for a visit by education
inspectors, according to Prime Minister David Cameron's Downing Street office. The finding is included in one of two official
reports into allegations of a plot to take control of the leadership of schools in the city in central England and impose Islamic
principles such as gender segregation. The so-called "Trojan Horse" plot was first raised in an anonymous letter, which was
leaked to the media earlier this year.
Rule for Islamists and Another for Everyone Else? It's not Fair. How long do you think a white teacher would last in a
British primary school if he were to tell his class of seven-year olds that all non-Christians were "filthy heathens"? [...] Not very
long, I expect. [...] So how come for one particular minority the rules are different? How come, when a Birmingham teacher told
his Local Education Authority that he had seen signs of an attempted Islamist takeover in local schools as early as 1993, his warnings
were ignored and he ended up being dismissed for "gross misconduct"?
Parents slam pro-Islam slant in Florida school
textbook. Hundreds of parents, angry at what they say is a biased student textbook with a decided pro-Islam slant, have launched a campaign
demanding equal religious representation and planned a protest at the school board meeting this week. The book, "World History," devotes fully
32 pages — an entire chapter — on "Muslim Civilizations," including descriptions of the Koran and a listing of the Five Pillars of
Islam, The Daily Caller reported. But noticeably missing is information on any other religion.
Christianity Under Attack in America. [Scroll
down] In 2001, the Byron Union School District in Byron, California instituted a three-week unit on Islam for 7th-graders. Students took Muslim
names, recited Islamic prayers, and celebrated Ramadan. When parents sued the school on the grounds that the course was "officially endorsing a religion,"
the U.S. Supreme Court rejected their appeal, leaving intact an earlier ruling by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that deemed that the unit did not
violate the Constitution and had an "instructional purpose." In 2009, the same court of appeals upheld a ban by Henry Jackson High School officials in
Everett, Washington against an instrumental performance of Ave Maria at a 2006 commencement ceremony.
New York schools may close for Muslim holidays.
Schools in New York, the biggest city in the U.S., might be about to implement shutdowns on certain Muslim holy days, as both mayoral candidates running for City
Hall have said they support such a move. A report in the New York Daily News says that Bill de Blasio, the Democrat, and Joe Lhota, his Republican
opponent, believe both Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha should be added to the holiday calendar along with other major religious observations, including Christmas,
Good Friday and Rosh Hashanah.
school students visit mosque, get Qur'an — not visiting church or synagogue. The public school officials behind this reveal by their
choices of visits that the real agenda here is to make these Tennessee students "accepting of the other," because that is the whole problem of jihad terrorism,
doncha know — if Americans were more accepting of Muslims and Islam, jihad terror would be a thing of the past. There are so many initiatives
like this, such as the Arkansas school that planned to feature a Muslim speaker on September 11, that it is hard to escape the conclusion that they really
believe this nonsense.
Students Take Field Trip to Mosque,
Receive Koran. A Tennessee high school has decided to revise its field trip policy after a group of freshmen were taken to an Islamic mosque
where they were given copies of the Koran and while a student who opted out of the trip was given a worksheet that alleged Muslims treated their conquered
people better than the United States treated minorities. The students were in an honors world studies class at Hendersonville High School and the field
trips to the mosque as well as a Hindu temple were part of a three-week course on world religions. But some parents objected to the trips and wondered
why the school would tour a mosque but not a Christian church or a Jewish synagogue.
Pledge of Allegiance skipped,
Muslim poem read at Boston school on 9/11. The principal of Concord Carlisle High School in Boston issued an apology Wednesday after
a Muslim poem was recited over the intercom on the 12th anniversary of 9/11, and the Pledge of Allegiance was not. According to principal
Peter Badalament, a "small number" of people were outraged at the poem, which was meant to promote "cross-cultural understanding," Boston.com
reported. Apparently, the Pledge of Allegiance was not read because of some confusion.
Bulletin board at Wichita school showing Five Pillars of Islam
removed. A bulletin board at a Wichita elementary school that illustrated the Five Pillars of Islam has been removed "because of the misunderstanding
that has been promoted by ... one photograph," district officials said Monday [8/19/2013]. The bulletin board at Minneha Core Knowledge Magnet Elementary was intended
to aid students' study of major religions of the world, district spokeswoman Susan Arensman said in an e-mail. It featured five white, construction-paper
columns and the words, "The Five Pillars of Islam."
Kansas public school promotes 5 Pillars of
Islam. The display was reportedly part of a religion component being taught at Minneha Core Knowledge Magnet School, a school district
spokesperson told Fox News' Todd Starnes. "The bulletin board that originally caused the concern does represent the 5 Pillars of
Islam — in a historical context of their studies," the spokesperson said.
School Defends Textbook Calling
Muhammad "God's Messenger". School officials in Florida are defending a textbook that declares Muhammad as the "Messenger of God" after critics
accused an Islamic education group of launching a stealth jihad in American public school classrooms. The Prentice World History textbook being used in
Brevard Public Schools includes a 36-page chapter on Islam but no chapters on Christianity or Judaism.
Strings attached? Tucson schools to take
$465,000 from Arab charity with Muslim Brotherhood ties. Last week, the governing board of the Tucson Unified School District asked the
school board to accept a $465,000 curriculum grant from the Qatar Foundation International, a global philanthropic organization with strong ties to the
Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of the terrorist group Hamas. The grant money is intended to implement "innovative curricula and
teaching materials to be used in any Arabic language classroom," reports the Arizona Daily Independent.
Nominated as UC Student Regent. A UC Berkeley senior who is a venomous supporter of the jihad against Israel and member
of several Islamic supremacist groups with links to jihad terror has been nominated to become the University of California student
regent for the 2014-15 academic year. The student regent participates in a board that sets policies for the entire University
of California system, which consists of ten campuses throughout the state. Sadia Saifuddin is expected to be confirmed as
student regent by the full Board of Regents next month.
Islamizing the Public Schools.
The Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is pressuring public schools in this country to make
special accommodations for Muslim students and to deny comparable accommodations for students of other faiths. For example,
CAIR's instructional material for teachers entitled "An Educator's Guide to Islamic Religious Practices" advises schools to permit
Muslim students who wish to attend Friday congregational worship (known as Jum'ah) to "request a temporary release from school."
by low self-esteem, Florida high schoolers told. It's low self-esteem and the need for a "sense of belonging" that drives
terrorists to join groups that kill in the name of religion, according to an online lesson plan for Florida high school students.
The world history course on "Invisible Warfare" — offered by the Florida Virtual School, the nation's first statewide
Internet-based public high school — begins by asking students "what comes to mind" when considering the concept of
fundamentalism and then prompts them to think of the term in a religious context. It later defines terrorism as the act of using
fear or violence to accomplish certain political or religious goals.
Muslims in Maryland petition schools to
close on Eid, like on Christmas, Yom Kippur. Schools are usually closed on Easter Monday and Rosh Hashanah — why not Eid al-Fitr?
That's the question Mimi Hassanein, a resident of Brinkow, Md., asks herself every time the Eids fall on a school day. The two most important Islamic
holidays — Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha — are traditionally spent praying and feasting with family and friends. But Hassanein says
that every year, her grandchildren and other Muslim youth in her school district are forced to choose between their religion and their grades.
proselytizing creeps into public schools. The Loudoun County School Board is reaching the denouement of a multiyear
deliberation about an application for a charter school that has strong ties to Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish Islamist. His
followers have already started some 135 American charter schools. Their focus is to promote an increasingly Shariah-dominated
Turkey. Incredibly, the school board's members are studiously avoiding any acknowledgment or discussion of the role of
Fethullah Gulen and his movement in the charter school.
Texas Lawmakers Blast 'Anti-American',
'Anti-Christian' Curriculum. Texas lawmakers are putting educators on the hot seat after public school curriculum
surfaced that promoted Islam and socialism while deconstructing American values and patriotism. School children were exposed to
lessons that labeled the Boston Tea Party an act of terrorism. They were also instructed to create flags for socialist and communist
countries. And they were also given in-depth lessons in the Islamic faith that included classroom readings from the Koran.
students read Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic. "We do say the Pledge of Allegiance on Mondays at Rocky Mountain High

and I reviewed it pretty carefully," Lopez said.

Colorado, after a multicultural student group were encouraged to recite the Pledge of Allegiance over the loudspeaker in
Arabic — replacing 'one nation under God' with 'one nation under Allah'. Following Monday's pledge, Principal Tom Lopez has been
inundated with complaints from outraged parents concerned that saying the Pledge in any language other than English is unpatriotic.
Pledge in Arabic, One Nation Under Allah?. A Colorado high school principal is defending his decision to allow students from
a cultural club to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic — and denied that it was attempt to push an Islamic agenda.
Tom Lopez, the principal at Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins, told Fox News he has received a number of telephone calls and
emails from outraged parents — but he stands by his decision.
Stealth Islamist Charter
Schools Under Investigation. If one believes that the battle for the nation's soul is occurring, not just in Washington,
D.C., but in schools across the nation, the steady advance of Turkish-Gulen Charter Schools may be cause for alarm.
'Allah is the Almighty God'. In the 70 percent of Texas public schools where a private curriculum has been
installed, students are learning the "fact" that "Allah is the Almighty God," charge critics of a new online curriculum that
already is facing condemnation for its secrecy and restrictions on oversight. The program, called CSCOPE, is a private
venture operating under the umbrella of the Texas Education Service Center Curriculum Collaborative, whose incorporation
documents state its independence from the State Board of Education of the Texas Education Agency. Other reports previously
have raised alarm over the curriculum's depiction of the Boston Tea Party as a terrorist act on par with the 9/11 attack.
Islamic Indoctrination in Textbooks. Political
Correctness has a double standard when it comes to teaching about religion in public schools. Drop Christianity down the Memory Hole, but give
extensive and mostly favorable coverage to Islam. Even the mainstream media have provided extensive coverage of the steady stream of court
cases and ACLU threatening letters aimed at removing all signs of Judeo-Christianity from public schools.
U's Muslim Chaplain Removed After Video Exposes Support for Terrorists. In what may be the first time a Muslim
religious figure was removed from a campus position by a university administration, Boston's Northeastern University told Imam
Abdullah Faaruuq that his services as chaplain for Muslim students were "no longer needed." This happened just days after
[Breitbart.com] published an expose documenting that Faaruuq is a supporter of convicted Islamist terrorists who is inciting
Boston Muslims against the U.S government.
Public schools: teaching reading,
writing, and... the Koran? You can't have a moment of silence in public school anymore because someone is offended. People
are pushing to have the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance stopped because it has "God" in it. Christmas trees are removed, Christmas
pageants are renamed "holiday pageants", and every shred of Christianity is being removed, bit by bit, by those who scream "separation of church
and state!" Yet in Minneapolis at Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy (TIZA), a K-8 charter school, children are being taught Islam and the Koran on
the public taxpayers dime, and no one questions it or says a word.
Islamic Propaganda Shown to Six Million American Students. On May 16 and 17 of 2012, Channel One Network, a national
distributor of educational videos and newscasts viewed daily by over 8,000 middle and high schools, aired a two-part video series,
titled "Young and Muslim in America" and "Islam in America." In "Young and Muslim in America: How being a part of Islam changed
ten years ago, Part 1," students watch as Muhtasham Sifaat, 18, kneels on a prayer rug inside an empty classroom.
His voiceover explains how he moved around a lot when he was younger, but Islam has given him stability. What is not revealed
is that Mr. Sifaat is a political activist serving as a chapter president of the Muslim Students Association (MSA), one of the most
radical Muslim Brotherhood front groups in America.
mandatory at NYC public school. An upper Manhattan public elementary school will be the first in the city
to require that students study Arabic, officials said yesterday [5/23/2012]. Beginning next semester, all 200 second- through
fifth-graders at PS 368 in Hamilton Heights will be taught the language twice a week for 45 minutes —
putting it on equal footing with science and music courses.
The Editor says...
How much scholarship money would he get for dressing like Mohammed? There are some who believe he's a fictional
in Textbooks. Political correctness has a double standard when it comes to teaching about religion in public
schools. Drop Christianity down the memory hole but give extensive and mostly favorable coverage to Islam.
Parents won't quit fight over
CAIR indoctrination. Parents in a Florida school district say their fight is not ending over district
officials' decision to openly promote a representative from the local Council on American-Islamic Relations group,
whose national organization has ties to terrorism, to speak to their students and then refuse to listen to parental
rip school for letting controversial Muslim group speak to students. Parents in Tampa are the latest to
protest school officials inviting a controversial Muslim civil liberties advocacy group to speak to students.
Dozens of people showed up at a Hillsborough County school board meeting Tuesday night to complain that a member of
Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, spoke to history students at Steinbrenner High School last fall.
They cited the group's past connection to a terror financing case involving the terrorist group Hamas. The group,
which purports to promote diversity and tolerance of the religion, has met a similar reception in Texas and Georgia in
student quits high school choir over Islamic song praising 'Allah'. A Colorado high school student says
he quit the school choir after an Islamic song containing the lyric "there is no truth except Allah" made it into the
repertoire. James Harper, a senior at Grand Junction High School in Grand Junction, put his objection to singing
"Zikr," a song written by Indian composer A.R. Rahman, in an email to Mesa County School District 51
officials. When the school stood by choir director Marcia Wieland's selection, Harper said, he quit.
Warns Against Singing Islamic Prayer Song. It is ridiculously easy to convert to Islam.
Just say it. Leaving Islam, not so much. For the believers, death is the punishment for apostasy.
Obviously the student who refused to submit to inadvertent conversion was wiser than the rest of the schmucks
who went along with the dangerous teacher/choirmaster. He quit the choir. And then had to leave school
because of the death threats that followed. Of course, the dhimmified school backed the teacher, while
keeping the student front and center in the line of fire. Such ignorance is unforgivable. Abandon the
public schools in droves. Home-school. Or consider fully vetted religious and/or private schools.
American public schools are dangerous in every way imaginable.
on Biased Textbooks Goes to 500 Superintendents. The report lists several quotes from textbooks
teaching students that the 9/11 attacks were a response to U.S. foreign policy. For example, one book
says, "What were the sources of Muslim anger? ...bin Laden declared that the attacks were a response to the
'humiliation and disgrace' that have afflicted the Islamic world for over eighty years." Another teaches
that Bin Laden was motivated by the "military presence of the sacred soil of the Arabian peninsula and its support
for Israel's hostility to Palestinian nationalism." The ideology of radical Islam is not discussed.
Harvard Fires Critic of Jihad.
Harvard has dropped economics courses taught by a Hindu professor, Subramanian Swamy, president of the Janata
Party of India and a former Union Cabinet minister, because of something that had nothing to do with economics:
he wrote an editorial that Muslims find offensive.
It's Called 'Christmas,' Stupid.
The University of California, Berkeley, provides a prayer room in the student union for Muslim students, and the
University of Michigan-Dearborn has installed footbaths for Muslim students, as have a dozen other universities.
A technical school in Minnesota has installed footbaths, but the coffee cart's Christmas music has been turned
off as a violation of the separation of church and state and, perhaps, insulting to those taking a footbath.
Hamas High School in
Florida? Why is a representative of a terror-linked organization, a defender of jihad terror
groups and an apologist for Islamic supremacism welcome to speak in public schools? ... [W]e have been able to
identify one school — Steinbrenner High School — where a representative of CAIR spoke to
students. An informed source tells me it was the notorious Hassan Shibly. Shibly has a track record
of defending jihad terrorist groups and acting as an apologist for the worldwide jihad and Islamic
supremacism. ... Anywhere CAIR speaks, freedom's defenders must be given a platform as well. We are not
an Islamic nation in which truth is blasphemy.
Fighting Radical Islam —
the Educational Threat. The education our children receive about Islam doesn't come only from the
media. In fact, information about Islamic culture is taught in public and private schools across the U.S.
From kindergarten to college, our children may be susceptible to mistruths about Islam, and its relationship to
the western world. There is a dedicated stealth curriculum campaign by factions of the Muslim world to
paint Islam in the most positive light, and that may not be a bad thing. The problem is that references
to Radical Islam are being completely whitewashed.
Curriculum in Georgia. Many of us have been calling out and exposing the destructive propaganda
war that is being waged in our nation's classrooms. Time and time again, we find extensive lessons on
Islam in the public schools, extolling Islamic misogyny and waxing poetic on sharia and the brutal oppression
of non-Muslims and apostates. Last week, we found that schools across Georgia were Islamizing the curriculum
by selling misogyny to children. They were using a lesson plan that glorifies the cloth coffin that
Muslims dress women in, as well as polygamy.
From Crayons to Condoms.
We've all heard stories about teachers and students not being allowed to pray in schools or bring their Bibles
to school. But unfortunately, when it comes to Islam there is a new standard. ... Islam is not always being
taught just as a comparative religion class but actually involves students in Islamic religious rituals.
One teacher reported that while she was substitute teaching she was instructed to leave the classroom for an
hour while another school employee came to the classroom to lead the students in their prayers to Allah.
Certainly the ACLU would file a lawsuit if a public school led children in prayers to God.
School Converted To Islamic Center. As you read this, be mindful that it could just as easily
be your community — and probably will be, eventually. Farmington, Michigan's Public School Board of
Education voted unanimously to sell their vacant Eagle Elementary School to the Islamic Cultural Association
for $1.1 million. The transaction was kept secret until the sale was nearly complete.
Schools Instituting Mandatory Arabic Language and Culture Classes. It seems that it was a
well-kept secret. Residents in the Mansfield Independent School District in Texas found out just this
Monday evening that the district had decided to force some of their children to take Arabic language and
culture classes. As for the impetus behind the move, as they say, just follow the money: The
program is a condition for receipt of a federal grant.
Say Textbooks Give Islam a Makeover. Three North County residents contend a textbook
used to teach seventh-graders about the Islamic religion in the San Dieguito Union High School District
"romanticizes" the history of the religion, and they want the district to use supplemental information to
provide what they say would be a more balanced view.
Agenda of our Public Schools. Multiculturalism, certainly, but I am particularly concerned
personally with the Islamic slant of public school textbooks. Of all the arenas in which the stealth jihad is
advancing, the most crucial is in our schools, where stealth jihadists have found a welcoming environment among
teachers deeply steeped in the multiculturalist ethos. With the mandate of "tolerance" robbing many
educators of their ability to evaluate non-Western cultures critically, teachers are highly susceptible to an
organized campaign by U.S.-based Islamic organizations and their primary benefactor, Saudi Arabia, to present a
view of Islam that whitewashes its violent history and intolerant religious imperatives. Meanwhile, in
America's Islamic academies, teaching materials, some direct from Saudi Arabia, instill unequivocal hatred
toward non-Muslims and a deep suspicion of Western culture.
Up for Persecuted Christian Teachers — in America. Two teachers at Dearborn's Fordson
High School, Bryan Purcell and Georgene Stergalas, were repeatedly harassed by the then-Muslim principal Imad
Fadlallah. (He has since been replaced by another Muslim principal.) As we've noted in the press
release announcing the lawsuit, it was clear that the harassment was brought because these teachers are Christians
and not Muslims and because the principal wanted to replace Christian teachers with teachers who are Muslims, Arabs,
or Arab Muslims.
De Facto Shariah Law
in America. In the State of California, 7th-grade students at Excelsior Middle School in
Discovery Bay, California adopted Muslim names, prayed on prayer rugs, and celebrated Ramadan under a
state-mandated curriculum that requires instruction about various religions. In 2006, the U.S. Supreme
Court again declined to hear legal challenges by concerned Excelsior parents, who complained that the instruction
was actually religious indoctrination and that Christianity and Judaism were not given equal time and exposure.
Apologizes After Students Pray to Allah on Field Trip to Mosque. A Massachusetts school district
has apologized to parents after a group of schoolchildren participated in midday Muslim prayers during a field
trip to a Boston-area mosque. The incident occurred in May when a social studies class from Wellesley
Middle School toured the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center, one of the largest mosques in the
School Field Trip Results in Islamic Indoctrination. This a sixth-grade class from a public school
in Wellesley, MA, working with another of these innocuous-sounding "charities" that are really leftwing fronts,
using taxpayer-funded field trip time to take unsuspecting children to a mosque that's notorious for its
connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, for the kids to be indoctrinated. There's no excuse for this.
Everyone on the school's staff who had anything to do with this trip should be fired.
Indoctrination in Public Schools. The fight against Islamic indoctrination in the schools won a
victory in Texas last week. But the forces pushing to obfuscate the nature of Islam's jihad imperative
hold the high ground in the education industry, forcing parents and realists to continue to fight. The
Texas Board of Education issued a press release on Friday, 9/24/10, which included a self-described "most
debated item on the board's Friday agenda" — a non-binding resolution that barely passed by a
7-6 vote, with two members absent.
Perversity: NY Schools Teaching Whitewashed Islamic History. The egregious bias in this
exam, and its structured, requisite evaluation by teachers, is transparent and disturbing. Two examples
of complementary "Official Historical Documents" which students are required to read and discuss —
one pertaining to Islamic Spain, the other Reconquista Christian Spain — along with very specific
teacher evaluation guidelines they must satisfy for the best grade, epitomize the naked indoctrination being
Schoolhouse Shariah. California's
educrats have put out new rules for teaching Islamic studies to seventh-graders in public schools, and they are as biased as
ever. They'll also likely spread eastward. The lesson guidelines adopted by the bellwether state whitewash the
violence and oppression of women codified in Islamic law, or Shariah. And they're loaded with revisionist history
about the faith.
in the K-12 Classrom. A highly disturbing phenomenon is rising in our public school system today
with hardly a peep of protest from parents and from our society at large: students are being force-fed a
curious and bizarre narrative that presents Islam in a glowing — and historically mangled —
light, while Western civilization and the Judeo-Christian tradition are demonized and smeared.
suspended for criticizing Muslim student. The teen says an issue over the American flag is why she was
written up and handed a five-day suspension from Springstead High School this week for criticizing a Muslim student.
Heather says the other girl was sitting down during the Pledge of Allegiance.
Left's Romance with Tyranny and Terror. With the decline of communism, the Left began to support
Islamism. Whereas journalists, novelists and activists led the charge in the first wave, Glazov explains
in the second half of the book [Unholy Alliance, the most vociferous defenders of Islamism now come
from the Ivory Tower.
US Public Schools
Teaching Children Pro-Islamic Propaganda. Christianity was started by a young Palestinian named
Jesus and the 9/11 murderers were not Islamic Fundamentalists but simply a generic "teams of terrorists."
That's the caliber of politically corrected [nonsense] many of our children are being taught in American
public schools — and it's past time all parents took serious notice. A five year study by Gary Tobin
and Dennis Ybarra of the Institute for Jewish and Community Research cites hundreds of such errors and
distortions found in "28 of the most widely used social studies and history textbooks in the United States."
Minnesota College Begins Islamization
Makeover. The first public college in the nation has now earnestly begun the Islamization of its
campus. We presume this is only the first of many other colleges and universities that will now follow
suit. Minneapolis Community and Technical College announced in March that it will renovate its bathrooms,
in order to install ritual foot-washing basins for Muslims' who are preparing for their prayers.
Hate Speech At San Francisco State
University. The virulence of anti-Israelism and antisemitism at The University of California, Irvine
campus ... has been so flagrant and endemic in recent years that it actually prompted an investigation by the U.S.
Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights, the findings of which were issued in a damning 2007 report. But
San Francisco State University is not far behind in the ignoble way it has enabled its Muslim students' organizations to
create a veritable reign of terror on campus against Jewish and pro-Israel students, while simultaneously attempting to
silence voices of opposition...
Critic Says Islamic Extremism Gets Whitewashed
in American Textbooks. An education expert is warning that some American textbooks present a
biased view of Islam and offer a sugarcoated picture of Islamic extremism, a trend that has parents worried
about what's being taught in public schools. In numerous history textbooks, "key subjects like jihad,
Islamic law, the status of women are whitewashed," said Gilbert T. Sewall, director of the American
Textbook Council, an independent group that reviews history books and other education materials.
Jihad in the Schools. American educators have been bending to the will of the grievance-mongers
ever since the 9/11 attacks. Remember the jihad-sympathizing admonition included in the NEA's
touchy-feely, post-9/11 curriculum: "Do not suggest that any group is responsible" for the terrorist
attacks, parents and teachers were advised. But feel free to conjure up homeschooling "wackos" and
Christian "New Crusaders" to avoid offending the Muslim lobby.
Week III: "Stop the Jihad on Campus". In October 2007, more than one hundred
campuses hosted Islamo-Fascism Awareness weeks to make university communities aware of the Islamist
threat and the danger it poses. In April 2008 a second Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week focused
on the network created in America by the Muslim Brotherhood and that includes the Muslim Students
Association and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
Textbook Lies About Islam. Why,
at a time of war, are students at top U.S. military schools denied an objective treatment of Islam's war doctrines?
A report by the American Textbook Council sheds light by showing how these academic failures have much deeper roots.
Speech on Radical Islam Has Repercussions at Northwestern. Less than a week after defaming David
Horowitz by claiming that he spreads "blatant lies about Islam" and criticizing the College Republicans for "bringing
such an offensive and divisive speaker" to campus, the Muslim-cultural Students Association (McSA) at Northwestern
has announced plans to bring infamous Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers to campus.
School for scoundrels.
Despite a report by the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom that the Islamic Saudi Academy in
Alexandria, Va., has continued to use textbooks that teach hatred of everyone not of their specific brand of
faith, the U.S. State Department has yet to act to close down the school. One would be hard-pressed to
find a greater threat to public health, safety and welfare than this training ground for a new generation
Report: Maryland Textbooks on Islamic Teachings Dumbed
Down. According to the New York Examiner, a new report issued by the American Textbook Council said that
administrators who approved books for use in the Montgomery County school district caved into pressure by pro-Islamic groups
seeking to present a less violent interpretation of Islam. Gilbert Sewall, director of the council, stated that, for
example, the definition of jihad has gone through "amazing cultural reorchestration" in textbooks, losing any connotation
of violence, the Examiner wrote.
Muslim University in America. At the University of California, Irvine the Muslim Student Union
(MSU), a virulently anti-Semitic and anti-American student group, holds several programs which unabashedly
support terrorist groups and unjustly denounce Israel, America, and the Western world. MSU events have
featured speakers like Norman Finkelstein, Ward Churchill, Muhammad al-Asi and Amir Abdel Malik Ali, and have
had titles such as "Hamas: the People's Choice" and "Israel: The 4th Reich."
Islamic Textbook Teaches It's OK to Kill. A federal
investigation released Wednesday [6/11/2008] reveals that some Islamic textbooks are teaching kids it's okay to kill
adulterers and converts from Islam. The books have been used by the Islamic Saudi Academy, which teaches 900 students
in grades K-12 at two campuses in Alexandria and Fairfax. The school receives much of its funding from the
disciplined for 'refusing to pray to Allah'. It was claimed that the boys, from a year seven class of 11
and 12-year-olds, were given detention after refusing to take part in a practical demonstration of how Allah is
worshipped. Yesterday [7/4/2008] parents accused the school of breaching their human rights by forcing them
to take part in the exercise.
punished for refusing to kneel in class and pray to Allah. Two schoolboys were given detention after refusing
to kneel down and 'pray to Allah' during a religious education lesson. Parents were outraged that the two boys from
year seven (11 to 12-year-olds) were punished for not wanting to take part in the practical demonstration of how Allah is
Islam in America's
public schools: Education or indoctrination? Islamists, or those who believe that Islam is
a political and religious system that must dominate all others, are focusing less on the military and more on
the ideological. It turns out that Western liberal democracies can be subverted without firing a shot.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the educational realm. Islamists have taken what's come to be known
as the "soft jihad" into America's classrooms and children in K-12 are the first casualties.
Open Tent' Day — Kids Dress Like Arabs. Only in the west can one see a school that hosts a day
when school children are encouraged to dress like, act like, and "learn about" those trying to kill them and
all in a day that the country is in the midst of war. And only in the west would the media help
celebrate such an outrageous example of support for what, in truth, are our enemies.
Update: Principal has new job after 'Islam 101'
controversy. The Friendswood Junior High principal who outraged some parents by allowing an
Islamic group to make a 40-minute presentation to students last month is now off the job. In a
two-sentence statement sent late Wednesday, the school district said Robin Lowe "has accepted another
administrative position effective immediately."
Multiculturalism Gone Berserk:
Why are school children forced to "bow to the altar of multiculturalism" as they did at the Amherst Middle School
when kids had to celebrate something called "Open Tent Day" by parading around the school dressed as Saudi
Arabians, according to pcblogspot.com.?
Muslim presentation at Friendswood school
draws fire. Parents of some junior high students are upset they weren't notified about a school
presentation on Islamic culture, an omission that violated school district policy. The parents'
letter-writing campaign stems from a May 22 presentation at Friendswood Junior High, where two Muslim
women gave a 30-minute presentation about Islamic life as part of a yearlong study of respect, tolerance and
culture, The Galveston County Daily News reported Saturday [5/31/2008].
Wall of silence broken at state's Muslim public
school. Recently, I wrote about Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy (TIZA), a K-8 charter school in Inver
Grove Heights. Charter schools are public schools and by law must not endorse or promote religion.
Evidence suggests, however, that TIZA is an Islamic school, funded by Minnesota taxpayers.
Islam and the Textbooks:
[Scroll down] What the comparison revealed were content distortions and inaccuracies that have not occurred by
accident. These lessons and the process by which they are put into America's classrooms raise serious
concerns about the integrity of world history as a subject.
or Indoctrination: Inquiring Minds Want to Know. Two thoughts come to mind as I reflect on
this story. The first deals with the notion of the "double standard"; the second, with "duplicity."
Our current climate of political correctness in this country has produced a dizzying double standard as it
relates to Christianity and its competing world views -- including Islam.
Public University Professor. A history professor at a public Ohio university is an outspoken
supporter of Palestinian terrorism who regularly works on his renowned Jihad web site while drawing a state
paycheck. The Kent State University teacher, Julio Pino, is a Muslim convert who says his Jihadist news
service provides battle dispatches, training manuals and Jihad videos to brothers worldwide.
Behind the Censorship of Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week? The three co-equal branches of the Unholy
Alliance — Islamic radicals, far-Left activists, and academics — have returned to their
usual level of discourse — intimidation, slander, ad hominem attacks — in an attempt to
ban Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week from college campuses before it ever occurs.
In England: Teachers
drop the Holocaust to avoid offending Muslims. Schools are dropping the Holocaust from history lessons
to avoid offending Muslim pupils, a Government backed study has revealed. It found some teachers are reluctant
to cover the atrocity for fear of upsetting students whose beliefs include Holocaust denial. There is also
resistance to tackling the 11th century Crusades — where Christians fought Muslim armies for control
of Jerusalem — because lessons often contradict what is taught in local mosques.
Also in England: Muslim
pupils learn to cut off hands of thieves. Up to 5,000 pupils attending weekend schools across
Britain are being exposed to textbooks claiming that some Jews were transformed into pigs and apes, and that
some offences could be punished with stoning. One book for six year-olds warns that those who do not
believe in Islam will be condemned to "hellfire" in death.
Scholastic joins education
industry's campaign for Islam. The Junior Scholastic "news magazine" that is written for
elementary students and used in thousands of public schools across the United States has published an
article promoting "madrassa" school life for American children who are Muslims, much to the outrage of
some parents. "Remember way back in grade school and getting Junior Scholastic magazine in
school? Well here is an example of what JS has devolved into. Force-feeding the barbaric
propaganda of Islamic madrassas down the throats of my 7th and 4th graders. Disgusting," a
father wrote WND about the issue, published in November.
Teacher resigns after placing "destroy
America" in students' word search. Students said former Smithfield-Selma High Spanish teacher
Khalid Chahhou gave them an extra-credit "word search" Thursday [11/16/2006] that required them to
translate vocabulary words and find them in a grid of letters. They started seeing other words
such as "destroy" and "terrorist" and eventually put together a few sentences that decry violence against
Palestinians and appear to condemn the United States for its involvement in the conflict.
universities, little learned from 9/11. The feminists at Harvard seek to remove every vestige of
patriarchy in America, but they have said almost nothing about the complete dismissal of women's rights by
radical Islam. To do so would be to attack Islamic culture, and according to multiculturalism, every
culture is equal and none is evil.
Oregon Students Wear Islam Dress For
Class. Officials at a public school in Oregon are defending a seventh-grade social studies unit
on Islam that included students dressing in traditional Islamic dress. Kendlee Garner of Nyssa told the
Ontario Argus Observer that she objected to the amount of time dedicated to the unit on Islam —
four weeks — as well as the wearing of religious garb and the lack of parental notification. She
said her son told her about the activity, and when she objected, he got an alternate assignment in the library.
Ex-teacher gets 15 years for aiding
terror group. A federal judge yesterday [8/25/2006] sentenced a former third-grade teacher at a
Muslim school in Maryland to 15 years in prison for providing support to a terrorist organization known
as the "Virginia jihad network," which used paintball games to train for a holy war.
Jihadist: Throughout America, universities are turning a blind eye while their campuses are
being invaded by those propagating a violent form of hatred known simply as radical Islam. This month,
one such campus will follow this insidious trend. On March 17th through the 18th, the University
of Central Florida (UCF) will be hosting an imam who has ties to terrorists and has publicly pledged his
support for those who commit suicide in the name of Allah.
Parents Sue After Students "Become Muslims": A public school in Byron, California is being
sued after forcing Christian students to pretend they were Muslims for three weeks. As part of an
Islam simulation" project, students prayed in the name of Allah, chose a Muslim name, and played a "jihad"
dice game, according to the group that filed the lawsuit.
Islam studies spark hate mail,
lawsuits: (Parents say "Biased" state-adopted textbook distorts world history in favor of
Muslims.) Word of public-school students pretending to be Muslims, wearing robes, simulating jihads
and memorizing verses from the Koran in a seventh-grade California classroom touched off a firestorm of
debate, but WorldNetDaily has learned these classroom exercises are neither isolated to one school district
nor are they anything new.
How wonderful. This is just what we need. Over 10,000 Saudi Students
are Bound for the US. More than 10,000 Saudi students will travel to the US to

measures by the Ministry of Higher Education aimed at facilitating travel procedures for
Saudis. In total, 21,000 Saudis are expected to take part in the program in the
next four years.
Indoctrination" Case Heating Up: A Christian attorney
says students who sued a university over a mandatory Muslim indoctrination
course should not have to reveal their identities. A group of
students is suing the University of North Carolina for attempting to
force them to participate in a pro-Islamic reading program, claiming
the program amounts to government sponsorship of religion. They sued
anonymously out of fear of retaliation from radical Muslim extremists.
9th Circuit Says Islam in
Public Schools is Okay. In what can only be seen as a double-standard, the Ninth U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals has decided that teaching Islam in a public school does not amount to indoctrination, even
though the court's rulings indicate recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance apparently does.

mythology thrives on PC college campuses. Youth lends itself to stridency
and naïveté, making campuses fertile fields for hatemongers and paranoia

for Kids: It contains no foul language or sexual innuendo. In fact, it
aims to instill reverence for God and obedience to His commands. Nevertheless, one
educational CD-ROM marketed to children aged five and up is one of the most disquieting
products ever aimed at pre-teens. The Islamic Fun! CD-ROM teaches
Muslim children about a smorgasbord of Islamic topics.
The Answers are
Simple, the Decisions are Hard: A recent news item told how a California public school had
adopted an Islam curriculum in a well meaning effort, I suppose, to create peace among diverse religious
elements in our nation. They teach these days that diversity is the new religion, and it is often
put forth with an inflexible boldness that belies its so-called "tolerance" and disparages all other
singular faiths such as Christianity or Judaism.

Giving Yale the
finger: Since the New York Times and Wall Street Journal broke the news about the admission of
Taliban official Sayeed Rahmatullah Hashemi to a special student program at Yale, we've received numerous
emails from outraged Yale Alumni. One email stood out from the rest — "I won't give Yale one
red cent this year, but maybe I will give them a red fingernail instead!" She was referring to the
Taliban's policy of pulling the fingernails off of Afghani women who dared to wear fingernail polish.
Some of these women even had their thumbs sliced off as punishment.

Yale students, this is not a theoretical question.
relations' response: "Are you retarded?". We'd be lying if we said we were surprised at the

Sayed and de Man at Yale: Three
weeks after the New York Times revealed that former Taliban official Sayed Rahmatullah Hashemi is attending
classes at Yale, many at the university still have little to say about the controversy. Meredith Startz,
president of the Yale Political Union, told me "there's more discussion of military recruiting among people
at Yale than about the Taliban student." That's partly because Ms. Startz's own organization is
discouraging discussion of the subject.
Taliban: defending the indefensible, part I. Yale is in a dilemma. It made a
huge, indefensible blunder when it admitted the senior advisor to Mullah Omar as a special student,
and now it's taking hits from students, from alumni, and from the media. How can Yale spin
its way out of this one?
Taliban: Defending the indefensible, part II. Uncanny, isn't it? There's a
reason the Taliban sent this fellow abroad to lie for them. He's good. He's smooth. He
plays limousine liberals like fine violins. Even now the Yale administration and most of its faculty
and students — especially those on usually vocal left — are refusing to speak out
against the evil he represented. Their ignorance is willful. Their gullibility is
inexcusable. Their silence is damning.
God and Juan
at Yale? After clearing a significant procedural hurdle earlier this month, University
of Michigan professor Juan Cole, who is better known as a left-wing Israel-bashing blogger, could
soon be offered a full tenured position at Yale.

Jihad Watch. Because the West is
facing a concerted effort by radical Muslims, most of whom are ignored by the Western media,
to destroy the West and bring it forcibly into the Islamic world. That effort goes
under the general rubric of jihad. Jihad Watch is dedicated to bringing public attention
to the role that jihad theology and ideology plays in the modern world, and to correcting
popular misconceptions about the role of jihad and religion in modern-day conflicts. We
hope to alert people of good will to the true nature of the present global conflict that
radical Islam is waging against the rest of us.
