Skip to comments.Islam indoctrination in U.S. textbooks
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:
Just don’t let them draw that prophet dude in Art class...
What happened to separation of church and state? Are mosques exempt?
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
What hidey-hole did the ACLU go off into?
The liberal dirtbags just need to keep bringing it on ....... it helps our cause.
An authentic simulation of Islamic activities would risk getting the schools blown to smithereens.
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.
Remove sound doctrine and you leave a vacuum for false doctrine to fill.
Obama’s a liar. We are not a Muslim nation. We are and always have been a Christian nation.
“Lord of Creation”
I’m sure it would satisfy many here that they are now teaching Creation in the public schools.
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
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.
Imagine the fallout if they quoted from the Bible and had the kids recite the Lord’s Prayer to teach cultural diversity and tolerance.
True, but saying 0bama’s a liar is like saying the sun rises in the east and salmon swim upstream. It’s what they do.
