A battle over religion is brewing in central Indiana after a public school wanted second graders to sing a song declaring, Allah is God. The phrase was removed just before the performance after a national conservative group launched a protest.
The principal of Lantern Road Elementary School in Fishers, IN, said they were trying to teach inclusiveness through their holiday production. It included references to Christmas, Hanukkah, Ramadan, Las Posadas and Kwanzaa. However, no other deity, other than Allah, was referenced in the show.
It went off without a hitch, Danielle Thompson told the Indianapolis Star. Several families thought it was a nice program. But others did not especially David Hogan. His daughter came home with a copy of the lyrics just days before the production. Hogan, a Christian, told the American Family Association, a conservative advocacy group, that he was deeply concerned to learn that his daughter had been singing, Allah is God.
Heres what the children were assigned to sing:
Allah is God, we recall at dawn,
Praying til night during Ramadan
At this joyful time we pray happiness for you,
Allah be with you all your life through.
Thank you RR, been gone a long time, all pent up with what I ingested lol
Thanks my friend, it will keep you coming back :)
Thanks for all the links. I am bookmarking them.
Sniips: Once again, another village in the Chicago suburbs will be the target of a public event by the anti-democracy, Islamic supremacist organization Hizb ut-Tahrir on Sunday, December 20 - this time using a government-managed community center in Lombard, Illinois.
Hizb ut-Tahrir is an extreme group that is opposed to democracy and religious freedom, has called for the killing of Jews, recently called whipping of homosexuals and stonings to combat AIDS, has reportedly called for the murder of a university official in Bangladesh, and in July distributed pamphlets in Chicago's Oak Lawn suburb calling for the "death penalty" for those who leave Islam. Hizb ut-Tahrir is an international organization that according to a former member Ed Husain, Hizb ut-Tahrir calls for an "expansionist, violent, totalitarian Islamist state." According to BBC and the Daily Telegraph, Hizb ut-Tahrir has been linked to calls for killing Jews and Hindus, radicalizing individuals to become suicide bombers, and according to the New Statesman has been linked to high-level terrorists.
The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) on Monday urged clerics to refrain from issuing edicts against suicide bombing without lending an ear to the jihadi point of view.
Thousands of young Asians and Africans and a handful of Westerners are flocking to conservative Islamic schools in Pakistan, despite a government ban on foreign students.
Several hundred students from 29 countries live alongside 5-thousand Pakistani pupils, according to teachers there.
Ejaz Buksh, a Canadian student at Madrassa Jamia Binoria Alamia, said that in the madrassa all scholars do is explain "what Allah has said through the Quran", however clerics firmly endorse suicide bombings and jihad against Western troops in Afghanistan on the school Web site.
Snip: Some 50 Muslim villagers armed with clubs and axes attacked a showing of the "Jesus Film" near this city in Punjab Province on Wednesday night (Dec. 9), injuring three part-time evangelists and four Christians in attendance.
Snips: In recent weeks, a renewed epidemic of suicide bombings has swept Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq, climaxing in huge blasts in Baghdad that killed 130 innocents on Tuesday. The Obama administration says these bombings have nothing to do with religion. Its purely coincidental that the perps preach severe Islam. The attacks are merely meant to destabilize governments.
Religious fanatics delight in killing and torturing the imperfect and impure. Its not about justice or redemption. The fanatics joy lies in the deed itself, in the god-like thrill of inflicting pain. Religious butchers really love their work.
When we lie and deny that religion has anything to do with Islamist terrorism, were not doing Muslims a favor. We empower the worst elements in the Islamic world.
But we dont want to hurt the feelings of fanatics. So we insist that Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood avenger for Allah, was upset. And the deeds of Gitmo inmates had nothing to do with religion (although we rush to pander to their beliefs). Al Qaeda and the Taliban just want political power. And so on.
But men dont rush to die to achieve political power they wont live to exercise. The current epidemic of massacres is about faith gone homicidal. Its about uncompromising hatred in Allahs name, a hatred unappeasable on this earth.
Thank you for the ping MamaDearest.
Yes - I try to check in every day.
I will be gone between Christmas & New Years for work, and have limited computer access. Then will have lots of catching up to do.
Thank you, MD. I awoke to the news that poor Illinois will be the new home of the Gitmo detainees. I had heard rumors of this before, but I guess now they are confirmed.
Will forward this. Thank you!
Been doing recent research into the terror compounds & so far there are 30 spread across the US. Who knows how many madrassas are going on...they are so infiltrated Oorang
150 miles from Chicago yes? My friend Gov. Thompson will be broken that prison named for him
TM thanks you for your post
I think the Swiss really have a good idea. EVERY home must have a loaded weapon. (coincidently, they also have the lowest gun crime rate.).......we may have to heed their wisdom. I pray that you fine folks in Illinois are ready.
Your fine Senator Durbin said that 3000 jobs would be created by this move..........to guard 100 detainees? That’s quite a jobs program!
The reasoning for this is absolutely beyond me.
It’s a pretty sad state of affairs when you have to use terrorists as props for job creation at an Illinois prison.
IMHO, the next hit will be just like the last - it will happen without warning. All we can do is to be ready to defend ourselves and our families.
Gotta run, stay safe folks.
Are you referring to the Jamaat ul-Fuqra camps or are these 30 in addition to ul-Fuqra?
A terrorist attack on London was averted because two beat patrol officers stopped a man who was acting suspiciously while filming with a mobile phone, police claimed yesterday.
The Algerian man said that he was a tourist, but when his phone was examined it yielded 90 minutes of footage of stations, security cameras and shopping centres.
Police took the unprecedented step of releasing the hostile reconnaissance video to counter criticism that they are using anti-terrorism powers to question tourists and photographers. Id much rather justify what we did do in stopping someone than having to justify why we didnt do it against the backdrop of a burning building and a terrorist atrocity, Detective Superintendent Chris Greany, of City of London Police, said.
Store operator in trouble over jihad comments (Tennessee)
December 15, 2009
That was the question U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Guyton faced Monday as federal prosecutors Jeff Theodore and Will Mackie pushed for the detention pending trial of Hazam Ali Ahmed.
The 35-year-old Ahmed was charged with being a felon in possession of firearms after authorities last week found two guns inside the Central Convenience Store on Keith Avenue that he operated. However, testimony at Monday's hearing shows Ahmed has been on the radar screen of the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force since at least January 2006.
FBI Agent Mark D. Murphy testified that an informant clandestinely recorded chats with Ahmed in early 2006 during which Ahmed allegedly tried to recruit the informant into the terrorist network al-Qaeda. "He referred to jihad," Murphy said of Ahmed. "He asked the confidential source if he would be interested in joining jihad. He stated that he was connected to al- Qaeda, that he had worked for them for several years. He wanted the informant to join al-Qaeda. "
