School Trip to “Moderate” Mosque: Inside Video Captures Kids Bowing to Allah
Peace and tolerance ^ | September 16, 2010 | Charles Jacobs

Posted on 09/16/2010 12:04:31 PM PDT by La Lydia

Americans for Peace and Tolerance has 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...

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.

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 memberawaiting sentencing for attempting to murder FBI agents in Afghanistan while shouting “death to America.”

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...

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...

WHY do liberals push this insanity? Do they think that after the war, they will clean them out and THEN install a socialist paradise? Because these parasites will dig in and they will NOT leave. Ask Londoners.

Christian’s have a word for Jihad too, Crusade, it seems to be way past time for a declaration by both the Catholic and Protestant faiths. They still think the old Crusade is in effect imagine what the psychological impact would be to Muslims if such an “edict” was handed down by all Christian faiths.

I’m sure they won’t hold the past against us and we can ask them if they’d like to join the new crusade. I think enough goodwill has been established between Christians and most Jews (maybe not the ultra-orthodox). Besides maybe they have a cool word/name that means the same that we could adopt.

SCHOOL TRIP VIDEO

Unbelievable, unconscionable brainwashing and evil propagandizing. And there's Obama's buddy, Gov. Deval Patrick, sitting right there!

Guard your children well. God save us.

If they really cared about teaching the history of this world-domination movement cleverly disguised as a religion, they would pass out copies of Robert Spencer’s books.

But that’s not what they are trying to do. They are teaching the kids that Christians and Jews are bigoted, prejudiced and intolerant and that they should deny their identity and bow down and make out they are good little death cultists and then go home and see how intolerant mommy and daddy are and maybe little Timmy and Janie will one day grow up to be big, adult death cultists and reject Christianity and Judaism.

True. These crimes from hundreds of years ago were indeed terrible. Let's look at some more recent ones by Liberalism's preferred religion...

I’ll put it in plain English form. Maybe its time for all of Christianity and possibly Judaism to declare war on Islam before it swallows the world.

That would be nice, but it won't happen. Too many "enlightened" folks don't even believe we're at war with Islam or that Islam is at war with us.

Honorable? The ACLU? When????

The ACLU Never Forgets Its Pro-Communist Roots

Just as a leopard cannot change its spots, nor a zebra its stripes, an organization whose founder admired the “ideals” of the hammer and sickle can never really abandon those destructive beginnings.

More than a quarter-century after his death, the “legacy” of American Civil Liberties Union founder Roger Baldwin – a self-professed fan of Soviet communism and of Joseph Stalin – is still going strong. With the collapse of the Soviet empire, current ACLU leaders have thrown more of their support to one of the last remaining bastions of the Soviet ideal: Cuba.

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.”

More teaching at home is necessary. These children at that should know about 1)their own faith - if not Muslim or 2) their rights to not participate this would be a good story about kids standing up for themselves.
