Islam indoctrination in U.S. textbooks
Renew America ^ | June 3, 2010 | Jen Shroder

Posted on 06/03/2010 8:00:45 PM PDT by Coleus

Today's textbooks indoctrinate our children into Islam and are backed by court rulings allowing teachers to REQUIRE our children to bow down and pray to Allah "in demonstration." As Obama's non-jihadists plot to "internally cleanse" America shouting "Allah-Akbar," many of our children have simultaneously taken the position on their hands and knees and recited, "In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful. Praise be to Allah, Lord of Creation, The Compassionate, the Merciful, King of Judgment day! You alone we worship, and to You alone we pray for help, Guide us to the straight path."

Public outrage has caused some school districts to take pause in "simulating Islam," but not before Judge Phyllis Hamilton ruled in favor of the practice. Court transcripts quote: "the use of the Islam module was motivated by the purely secular purpose of instructing students about Islamic culture and history" and that a "non-secular purpose may only be found 'when...there was no question that the...activity was motivated WHOLLY be religious considerations." [omissions in transcript]

It is shocking that Hamilton could compose the following condemning the Ten Commandments while endorsing banners in front of a school that state, " "There is one God, Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet." This is her ruling, upheld by the Ninth Circuit:

"Similarly, plaintiffs claimed in oral argument that the display of the group banners showing portions of the Bismillah was analogous to the display of the Ten Commandments in school classrooms, which has been found unconstitutional. However, the display of the Ten Commandments in a classroom setting was found unconstitutional because the Supreme Court determined that upon objective review, the primary purpose for their display was to endorse Christianity. Here, in contrast, the primary purpose of the Islam module was the secular goal of educating students about Islamic culture. Thus, even the display of religious texts in a purely secular context will survive Constitutional review as well." (pdf link below)

Clinton's Presidential Guideline, "Religious Expression in Public School," states: "Students generally do not have a Federal right to be excused from lessons that may be inconsistent with their religious beliefs or practices." Originally drafted with Abdurahman Alamoudi (currently in prison for terrorist acts) and in the hands of the ACLU and Judge Hamilton (appointed by Clinton), there went religious freedom.

Thus, public school teachers can REQUIRE your child to take a Muslim name, fast for Ramadan, repeat by heart for weeks that Allah is the only god, that he alone they worship and display banners with the same sentiments. One teacher required her students to recite the prayer every time they exited the classroom for two weeks. What does it take to become a Muslim? Reciting that prayer. Oh but wait, they have to believe it...never mind then. That makes it okay that the last words that some of our troops heard before beheading are the same words our children pray on their hands and knees in public school.

ISLAM INDUCTION IN OUR TEXTBOOKS

Houghton Mifflin's "Across the Centuries" underwent multiple revisions led by Nader F. Darehshori, CEO, previously a school teacher in Iran. In the Islam section among other practices, our children are asked to assume they are Muslim soldiers. In the Jewish section, the ONLY imagination practice is to imagine they are with the Jews when they were conquered and forced to live away from their homeland. In the Christian section, the ONLY imagination practice was to imagine being in the buried catacombs of the dead Christians. (Christians/body of Christ back in the tomb, how symbolic).

For a while, Houghton Mifflin posted denials that the Council of Islamic Education contributed to the textbook. But then articles quoting Abigail Jungreis, Editorial Director of HM were found on Muslim sites applauding their input, especially information about the Crusades...so for the Christian section our children are given the Crusades from the Muslim perspective. Meanwhile the Islam section states:

  1. "In fact, the very first word the angel Gabriel spoke to Muhammad was recite." (in fact?)
  2. "These revelations confirmed both Muhammad's belief in one God, and his role as the last messenger in a long line of prophets sent by God."
  3. "Muhammad's revelations occurred from 610 until his death..."
  4. "The Quran is the final revelation, just as Muhammad is the final prophet."
  5. "Ramadan is a holy time, because in this month Muhammad received his first message from Allah."
  6. "Arabic lettering had a special significance for Muslims, because it was used to write down God's words as they had been given to Muhammad."
  7. "The courtyard and Mosque allowed Muslims to feel Allah's invisible presence whether they were inside or outside the Mosque."
  8. "This caliph, Muslims realized, could not give the same kind of spiritual leadership as Muhammad had. The new caliph would not be the prophet of Allah, as Muhammad had been."
HM denied implying acceptance of Muhammad's mission as the prophet when a section was headed with "THE LIFE OF THE PROPHET" and listed him as prophet 42 times!   To the average Christian, facts about Jesus in the Christian section seem merely watered down. But if you study Islam you would realize that what is written about Jesus is what Islam believes about Jesus.

These are some of the reasons that Texas has taken a stand about curriculum. Texas is the 2nd largest block in the market and textbook publishers listen. But California is number one and is currently passing laws blocking Texas changes. I urge everyone to contact your state legislators and ask them to do to California what California has done to Texas. Let the textbook publishers know your state condemns the insanity that California has imposed. Do not let California remain on the throne of public education. I live in California. For the love of God, protect your children.

Plenty of separation of CHURCH and state, but not so much for mosque and state. I guess that's because the imam infesting the White House has declared that the U.S. is the largest muslim nation.

This idiocy is CAUSED by the unconstitutional heresy of separation of church and state. At the end of the day, we're either a Christian nation (not established by the state, but through free exercise of religion like America was until the 20th century), or we’re duped by every snake-oil salesman, huckster, and jihadist to come down the pike.

Remove sound doctrine and you leave a vacuum for false doctrine to fill.

Every time.

This is one of those rare instances where I think that the homeschool ping list needs to see a thread that was ping for the Another Reason to Homeschool list.

Granted, this is really another reason to homeschool, but this is so breathtakingly appalling that I thought it deserves as much publicity as possible.

Not enough people are saying that Obama is a liar when he says we are not a Christian nation. I don't care about all his other stupid lies. For every one time those words are spoken, it should be broadcast five times that:

1) We are a Christian nation,

2) Separation of church and state is an unconstitutional heresy, and

3) Through constitutional free exercise Christians and the Church must get back the reigns of government, not through unconstitutional state establishment but through constitutionally protected free exercise of religion.

And for physical education courses they can teach children how to slay non-believers. The muslims have holy writings that promise that you should ‘cut down’ or slay non-believers when you meet them and promises that Allah will not punish you for doing this.

That’s what I hear.

They know how to play the system here in the US.

They know that the techniques that they use elsewhere won’t work here so they’re using our system and our Constitution against us. Actually, the liberal misinterpretation of the Constitution.

But infiltration and indoctrination are going to work better here than outright terrorism. Better for them to bide their time and make sure of the victory in the long run, then push too fast and wake us up and find us pushing back.

They can wait.

There is no separation of religion and political rule under Islam. It is a system of theocratic rule that discriminates against non-muslims under law.

Don't be. In our corner we have God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We have the armies of heaven, God's angels dispatched to serve and protect us invisibly. We have God's Word. We have God's people, just waiting to work with us for His glory.

In their corner, they only have that old liar, Satan, a being that tends to overreach himself time after time, then breaks his tools in a fit of spite when he fails.

What happens in my house is more important than what happens in the White House.

I can do something in my house to change the course of history. I can raise my own children "in the nurture and admonition of the Lord" to be people of purpose and destiny, people who do not participate in the cult of Caesar (Public "education"), and who do not take Caesar as seriously as he takes himself. Our future is as bright as the promises of God! See my tagline.

We need to stop bending over & allowing muslims to push their beliefs on us. If muslims can’t adapt to being American they should leave asap. We don’t need them here. It is not the will of Allah that they live here, they should live where their beliefs & way of life is normal, like their own hell hole countries. IMO muslims are a threat to our safety & a threat to our children’s safety. Our children are our future & we should protect them. As for teaching my child about muslims, I have started at the crusades & will not spare her the beheading & other horrible things muslims do & have done. I see no need to expose her to honor Allah, it is not my religion & how dare anybody expect that I should do so. If anything I will remind her weekly about 911 & the other terror attacks around the world.

Progressively worse behavior by our benevolent educators.

20 years ago, when I was in public high school, I was being taught how good Islam was and about the two large Islamic groups - Sunni and Shia (but, not about them murdering each other). We were taught how about the horrible Crusades and all the great accomplishments of Islam (Algebra, etc.).

Now, I don't believe the Algebra came from the Islamists. They are more like the aliens in Independence day that take over technologies and cultures.

Now, I don't believe the Algebra came from the Islamists.

Islam and the Psychology of the Musulman by Andre Servier, was published in French in 1922 and translated to English 1923. Click the link to read it for yourself. Here's a typical observation:

When Islam first rolled in, a culture's creative impulses flared up briefly one last time, like a light bulb when the filament shorts out. A generation later, the "Islamic" renaissance would be over, and the area as mired in stupidity as every other fully islamized society.
