Skip to comments.Public School Field Trip: Inside Video Captures Kids Bowing to Allah
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 Bostons 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 Mohammeds 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 Americas historically moderate Muslim community. For the past three years weve 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 Societys university, which offers classes inside the mosque. Over half the mosques $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 Societys 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 mosques 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 imams 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. Somethings broken here. Our leadership is failing. Its now up to ordinary citizens to fix it.
Any doubt if this were a Christian church the teacher and school officials would be suspended...? The ACLU would be filing suit.
We need to do the same thing to these leftists that we do to the Taliban. Both have the same business of deception and death so why are we treating leftists like citizens?
Id be hoppin mad!
Islam will be the shadow of all future generations.
Accommodating Islam in America is like inviting a vampire into your home.
Like going medieval on mosques? and home schooling or private schooling the kids..
Place a crech this Christmas watch the outrage.
The parents didn’t know?????
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.
Devil’s Advocate: why are we treating citizens like criminals?
President Obama would approve.
School kids can’t say the Pledge of Allegiance because of “under God” but bowing to Allah is OK.
The pubic school system that allowed this travesty should be hogtied...along with the mohamedan cultists.
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.
muslims are getting a free pass in this country by government and by the press. We won’t have to go to Europe, Europe is coming to us.
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.
I’d be in jail or dead.
Middle school trip. Presumably parents had to authorize such a trip - it was not a sneak attack.
>Teachers did not intervene. Parents have not been told.
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.
I swear I feel like I am living in a nightmare that I can’t wake up from. WTH???? How can this be happening in my country????
No, it is inviting satan into your home.
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.”
America deserves to become the he’ll on earth it will be.
Only then will people turn back to God. Israel went through this again and again.
Just sucks we, our children and grandchildren, will be here to live through the end of the United Soviet States.
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.
I just sent the link to the article to Drudge I hope he runs with it.
Yep, been there got the t-shirt. I’m so glad I don’t have to deal with people like that (for the most part) anymore.

“During the field trip, your children were taught to pray..”
“I WILL NOT TOLERATE PROSELYTIZING BY A BUNCH OF RADICAL FUNDAMENTALIST CHRISTIAN..”
“..at a mosque”
“Oh that was such a good lesson in tolerance. “
And when are they scheduled to go to a Catholic church to learn about christianity?
This does not surprise me at all.
There are FReepers who will defend anything a public school does.
Would somebody please send the link to Glenn Beck.
If it had any reference to muslim, islam, etc. my kids would not be attending.
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.
Imagine the uproar if they took these kids to a Catholic Church and the priest givng the tour not only led them in the Hail Mary, but told them that women could vote in the Holy Roman Empire.
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?
Does anyone have anything on the school czar, past or present, re: Islam?
Also keep this in mind:
Please make sure you send this to everyone you know. It’s THE PARENTS who need to fight this. If they don’t we are done.
America’s not over.
“Over? Did you say over? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no! And it ain’t over now! Cause when the going gets tough.. The tough get goin’. Who’s with me?”
‘in this country women didn’t get that right until less than 100 years ago’
This was not even a country until 1776. It did not take long at all.
We always had the right to walk around without wearing a tent.
