Skip to comments.Spreading Islam in American Public Schools
Posted on 11/24/2004 6:51:37 AM PST by Ginifer
Not only do Islamists want to censure the handling of Islamic topics at U.S. universities, as I noted in Islamists Police the Classroom [at the University of South Florida], but they also wish to do the same at grammar schools. More ominously yet, they wish to transform public schools at all levels into venues for spreading Islam.
An undated posting at www.SoundVision.com posts a page titled 18 Tips for Imams and Community Leaders. The 15th tip, Establish a parents' committee to monitor public schools, has special interest. It starts by asking if the local public school is teaching 10-year-olds that Muslims are terrorists and misogynists? If so, parents are advised to set up a committee to monitor public school curriculum and developments and arrange for Muslims to deliver talks about Islam and Muslims. For instance, as Ramadan approaches, a parent should explain the holiday to the school or in a social studies class. When a high-profile incident of terrorism where Muslims are the perpetrators takes place, the committee should ask to discuss Islam and terrorism. More broadly, the committee should lobby on behalf of Muslim concerns.
Another website points to a far deeper agenda, that of dawa, or using taxpayer-funded schools to proselytize for Islam. www.DawaNet.coms goals are summed up by an article it hosts: How to Make America an Islamic Nation. But what concerns us is a page, Dawa in public schools, that portrays public schools as fertile grounds where the seeds of Islam can be sowed inside the hearts of non-Muslim students. Muslim students should take ample advantage of this opportunity and present to their schoolmates the beautiful beliefs of Islam. This, the website asserts, is best achieved through both direct and indirect steps. Direct means overt dawa:
· Host Islamic exhibitions.
· Start an Islamic newsletter.
· Set up Dawa tables offering Islamic literature.
· Carry Dawa flyers from the Islamic Circle of North America and pass them out to non-Muslims.
· Place advertisements in the school paper with a toll-free telephone number for non-Muslims to call to learn more about Islam.
· Establish one-to-one contacts with non-Muslim students (along gender lines: It is advised that brothers work with non-Muslim boys and sisters work with non-Muslim girls).
Indirect partially means creating a good image for Islam:
· Found Muslim groups that portray Islam in a positive way, such as a Muslim Students Association, Islamic Circle, or Quran Study Group.
· Engage in simple actions that reflect living Islam, such as saying Insha Allah (God willing), praying, and wearing Islamic-style clothing.
· Take advantage of disasters to set up a disaster relief assistance booth to give a very positive picture of Islam and Muslims.
Or indirect means increasing consciousness of Islam:
· Make use of the school newspaper: Being a writer will give you ample opportunity to provide Islamically oriented articles which will Insha Allah [if God wishes] open the hearts and minds of readers. Ideally, an article on Islam should appear in each issue. If the school does not allow overt preaching, Alhamdu lillah, there are ways to circumvent this problem, such as reporting on Islamic events or writing about Islamic holidays. This way, you are still presenting an aspect of Islam without coming across as a preacher. DawaNet.com also coyly instructs its adepts to have a good rapport with the editor and the writing staff of the paper.
· Lobby to include Islamic dates on the school calendar.
· Add books and magazines on Islam written by Muslims to the school library; if the library does not purchase them, raise the money to donate them.
· Incorporate Islam into class projects. For example, for a speech class, if there is freedom to choose a topic, an Islamic topic should be selected. Similar opportunities can be created in history, social science, writing and other classes.
DawaNet.com concludes by reminding Muslims that the will of Allah, faith, and Muslim creativity combined to win victories in the past and can again in the future:
Schools and campuses are no exceptions as places where Islam can be victorious. We should use every opportunity to sensitize non-Muslim peers and school staff to Islam and to establish an environment in which everywhere a non-Muslim turns, he notices Islam portrayed in a positive way, is influenced by it and eventually accepts Islam.
(1) This is a total perversion of the American public space, a blatant effort to suborn it to serve Islamic missionary purposes.
(2) Such an attempt by Islamists hardly comes as a surprise but rather complements their already in-place campaign to exploit textbooks and curricula supplements for dawa purposes.
(3) The multikulti spirit so prevalent in American schools today means that too many parents, teachers, and administrators find themselves virtually helpless to stand up to this assault on the traditional values of the public school.
Due to safety concerns, students will no longer be able to bring their own lunches. Students must eat the school provided lunches or face expulsion.

I dont like all this mushy Islam stuff they propose- What about cutting off the heads of infidels- that will teach those kids a thing or two-
Sharia Law should be imposed in SF, LA, and NYC first to give the libs and the dems a taste of it. Women should be forced to wear burqa and husbands should have the right to beat their wives. The witness of one man should be considered to be equivalent to four women. Try these in the liberal cities first.
"There needs to be mindset change among the American people in order to stop seeing Islam as a religion."
You are quite correct about this. Islam is not a religion. It is a terrorist cult that promotes hatred, murder and theft. Islam must be stopped before it infitrates American society like it has in Eurabia.
Islam has already infiltrated our schools to the point where they have ensured that Christianity must not be allowed anywhere on a school campus in any form. And they have established their "right" to have Islam taught in public schools, have Islamic holidays acknolwedged in schools, have prayer rooms built by tax dollars in public schools and allow muslims to outwardly display signs of their religion in a public school.
This must be stopped. The longer we wait to stop the spread of this disease called islam, the bloodier it will be.
Bingo! I'm curious to see what the aclu would say about this. Since they're so big on 'freedom from religion' in our public schools, they should be protesting this isla-crap also...
"Schools and campuses are no exceptions as places where Islam can be victorious.
We should use every opportunity to sensitize non-Muslim peers and school staff to Islam"
You note that they use the term "sensitize". What they really are trying to do is desensitize us to islam (suicide bombings, beheadings, rape, murder, sodomy, theft, deception) so that they can be "victorious" as they put it.
Open your eyes to the danger that islam poses to ALL non-muslims.....or it will be too late.

There are no Shari'a courts in Canada.
Canada allows two private parties to have their civil dispute resolved in accordance with Shari'a law, so long as Shari'a does not conflict with Canadian law or public policy. You could also have your civil dispute resolved under Talmidic law, Chinese law or Klingon law, if you wanted to.
Would it surprise you if I told you that that has also been the case in the US for the last few decades?
"You are quite correct about this. Islam is not a religion. It is a terrorist cult that promotes hatred, murder and theft."
I always get a kick out of this kind of comment, cause I married a Muslim. Yup that's right, an athiest and a Muslim living happily together. She must be a horrible person, huh? No way! Sweetest, prettiest, kindest person I've ever met. But she's probably an exception amoung her country-people, right? Well 71 of her country-people are serving in Iraq, part of the "coalition of the willing," not bad for tiny little Albania. Bet you didn't think of them, huh? Islam isn't a dangerous, radical Islam is a dangerous. But then, radical anything is dangerous.
Fellow FReepers, google "Shari'a courts in Canada" but be sure you're setting down when you read your results.
Religion of Peace my ass ...
Canada has a pretty negligible-sized Muslim community. The idea that Sharia law will someday soon take over the Canadian courts is, well, silly.
This whole thing is a non-issue.
Funny how the Islamicists and the Lesbian/Sodomites are competing for our kids in the schools we pay for and yet we dont get a voice....
"Islam isn't a dangerous, radical Islam is a dangerous."
There is no separation between islam and radical islam. There are more islamic clerics worldwide that preach hatred of non-muslims, murder of "infidels" and destruction of the "West" than there are islamic clerics that speak a single word against such actions. Muslims support other muslims, first and foremost, regardless of whether they are "radical" muslims or "peaceful" muslims. "Peaceful" muslims andslamic charities fund schools which teach hatred of non-muslims and encourage students to kill non-muslims as a part of the "religion". Mosques give aid and comfort to terrorists. "Peaceful" muslims make apologies for "radical" muslims saying that non-muslims deserve to be terrorized.
Let me ask you a few questions.
What tangible evidence can you present that islam is a "religion of peace"?
Can you name one other major religion where, today, the clerics stand in their churches and encourage their followers to go out and kill anyone who is not a member of the religion?
Can you name any non-muslim religious school where the students are taught that members of all other religions are inferior and should be forced into submission or killed?
Can you name any non-muslim religion where the clerics and followers celebrate the flying of planes into crowded office buildings and celebrate the deaths of 3000 people?
Can you name any non muslim religion where, IF clerics and followers of that religion committed acts similar to the thousands of acts of terrorism, murder, etc. perpetrated by muslims, the other members of that religion would sit by denying, making excuses for and disregarding the actions of a large number of its members?
Can you tell me why these "peaceful" muslims that you say exist do not act to stop the "radical" muslims?
