Public School Field Trip: Inside Video Captures Kids Bowing to Allah
big peace ^ | 9/16/10 | Charles Jacobs

Posted on 09/16/2010 11:02:13 AM PDT by American Dream 246

My organization, Americans for Peace and Tolerance (APT), just released a video showing 6th graders from Wellesley, MA as they rise from prostrating themselves alongside Muslim men in a prayer to Allah while on a public school field trip to the largest mosque in the Northeast. Teachers did not intervene. Parents have not been told.

The video was taken inside the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center – Boston’s controversial Saudi-funded mega-mosque – during a Wellesley Middle School social studies trip to the mosque, ostensibly taken to learn about the history of Islam first-hand. Yet the video reveals that the students are being blatantly mis-educated about Islam. A mosque spokesperson is seen teaching the children that in Mohammed’s 7th century Arabia women were allowed to vote, while in America women only gained that right a hundred years ago. This seems to be an increasingly recurring theme in American schools – the denigration of western civilization and the glorification of Islamic history and values. In fact, just recently, the American Textbook Council revealed that the New York State high school regents exam whitewashes the atrocities that occurred during the imperialistic Islamic conquest of Christian Byzantium, Persia, the African continent, and the Indian subcontinent, even as it demonizes European colonialism in South America.

The mosque spokesperson also taught the students that the only meaning of Jihad in Islam is a personal spiritual struggle, and that Jihad has historically had no relationship with holy war. As far as we know, the school has not corrected these false lessons.

Our organization, APT, is a non-profit group run by Jews, Christians and authentically moderate Muslims opposed to the radicalization of America’s historically moderate Muslim community. For the past three years we’ve been sounding the alarm about the radical leadership and Saudi funding of the Boston mega-mosque and the organization that runs it, the Muslim American Society, which has been labeled by Federal prosecutors as “the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.”

The Islamic Society of Boston was founded by Abdulrahman Alamoudi, who is currently serving 23 years in jail on terror charges. For years, its board of trustees included Yusuf al Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood who was banned by Bill Clinton from the United States in 1999. Qaradawi now chairs the Muslim American Society’s university, which offers classes inside the mosque. Over half the mosque’s $15.5 million price tag was funded by wealthy Saudis and since it opened, several of its leaders, donors and members have been implicated in Islamic extremism.

Oussama Ziade, a big donor to the mosque, is now a fugitive in Lebanon after being indicted in 2009 for dealing in the assets of an Al Qaeda financier. Ahmad Abousamra, the son of the Boston Muslim American Society’s former vice-president Abdulbadi Abousamra, is now a fugitive in Syria, fleeing the country before being indicted in 2009 on charges of aiding Al Qaeda. One of the mosque’s imams, Abdullah Faaruuq, was captured on tape in 2010 telling followers to “pick up the gun and the sword” and to defend another local terrorist Aafia Siddiqui from the U.S. government. Siddiqui, who was one of the imam’s congregants, is an MIT graduate and Al Qaeda member awaiting sentencing for attempting to murder FBI agents in Afghanistan while shouting “death to America.” (LINK)

The mosque leadership continues to be embraced by top Massachusetts political and religious leaders. These include Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, as well as a group of local progressive rabbis and Christian clergy, who all insist despite evidence to the contrary that the mosque is moderate and its critics are just bigots.

Indeed, this is a familiar refrain by leaders nationwide in response to the increasing public realization that Islamic leaders are not as moderate as they present themselves. Radicalism is growing and many moderate Muslims have been silenced. In various parts of the country, public schools are allowing Muslim extremists to promote Islam to our children. Something’s broken here. Our leadership is failing. It’s now up to ordinary citizens to fix it.

They didn’t have to get permission from the parents to take this field trip??

Heads need to roll. Maybe the mosque attendees can help them out with that.

For the past three years we’ve been sounding the alarm about the radical leadership and Saudi funding of the Boston mega-mosque and the organization that runs it,

Back in the 1970s, my parents had to prove to state and municipal authorities that the money they had with which to buy an existing business, a bar/grill did not come from organized crime. It took about a year to jump through all of the hoops.

Would someone explain to me why we allow a hostile foreign government to fund our societal destruction?

My kids would be removed from that school so fast that the scene would look like a cartoon with the streaks going across the page.

I would then see a lawyer & see what kind of lawsuit I could mount against the school & the teachers.

Not to sue for money against the school- but to get a peermanent cease & desist ruling.

As for the teacher—I would sue them out of business.

Liberalism is a mental illness. They rail against Christians constantly for trying to take over the government. They throw up separation of church and state to try to force Christians out of the public arena. Yet they flirt and bend over for a religion where the church is the state.

A generation ago such logical inconsistency would have resulted in a declaration of mental incompetence.

Figgers.

Some ruckus about this mosque surfaced on local TV and the Herald when it was being built, and guess I shouldn’t be surprised that such a redoubt of the Jihad and the Muslim Brothers got a pass.

Gotta hand it to them on how they finesse their jihadi roots, and we avert our eyes.

Next, the students need to be taken to a Catholic church and taught to kneel in prayer and cross themselves; and learn the history of the Crusades.

A Nativity scene in Cambridge was fire bombed. The one on Lexington Green was removed because it was an “unattended structure”. The Knights of Columbus volunteered to hold 24 hour “attendance”. It was still removed. And what election was ever held in Saudi Arabia? As they said in Monty Python’s Holy Grail. “King eh? Well I didn’t vote for you.”

I worked in these towns, Cambridge, Lexington, Wellesley, and these people are the most sickening, elistist freaks imaginable. They are always giddy, and giggling, like girly men about how their progressivism tweaks the right. Sickening freaks, no different than the taliban with their robotic children, children who will hide behind a soldier that they hold in contempt.

The parents were dumb-a’s to let them go but they were told it was to see the architecture and learn the history of Islam. They were not told that their children were going to be proselytized to or that they would be invited to pray. That's what was sneaky about it. Or at least it was "sneaky" for people who haven't learned to distrust everything that school administrations and Mohammedans say.

Hmmm...a really good teacher would not only tell these kids that the “women could vote in the seventh century” jazz is a blatant falsehood, he or she would make sure these kids knew who Asma bint Marwan was. She was a poet in Medina who wrote a poem mocking Muhammad when he was new in town. Muhammad sent an assassin to her house and she was was stabbed so hard that her body was stapled to the frame of her couch by the blade. Her baby was sleeping with her on the couch at the time.

And did the kids say “There is one god but..and..is his prophet” while kneeling with several Muslim adults?
.....................................

“Becoming a Muslim is a fairly simple matter. It requires that you testify before two witnesses that

1) There is no god except Allah and that

2) Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.

This is the first of the five pillars that define the essential elements of Islam. Once you become Muslim you should implement all these though you should be gradual and gentle in your approach.”

I think the Left can actually get away with this. Push comes to shove this isn’t a church or religion. It’s a cult. There’s no such thing as separation between cult and state.

Levity aside, every teacher and supervisor who know of this trip in advance, needs to be banned from working in education for life.

Beyond the actual bowing, how in the sam hell can they claim a trip to a mosque was something anyone would sign off on, if it had been a Christian establishment?
