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.

All that is good, truthful and virtuous is being attacked on every front.

I’m feeling overwhelmed right now.

Very.

Doesn’t Islam mean “submission”?

Imagine the fallout if they quoted from the Bible and had the kids recite the Lord’s Prayer to teach cultural diversity and tolerance.

I imagine they'd react something like this....

It will be a “memorable” day when my grandkids are required to “simulate” Islam in school, judge or no judge.

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.

The shift in the “Court” of 1947 is the most astounding so far. You will not regret the purchase.
