Skip to comments.'ONE NATION UNDER ALLAH': COLORADO HIGH SCHOOL CLUB RECITES PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE IN ARABIC
Posted on 06/15/2013 7:52:08 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
A "multicultural student group" at Rocky Mountain High School recited the Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic on Monday, replacing "one nation under God" with "one nation under Allah."
School principal Tom Lopez supported the decision to have the pledge recited in this manner, and even after an outraged public contacted the school to complain Lopez stood his ground.
Lopez claims the kids weren't trying to be "un-American," but to "[accentuate] the meaning of the words as regularly spoken in English."

In other words they are trying to brainwash the kids into thinking Allah and God are the same thing
How do Arabic speaking Christians say ‘God’?
“Lopez claims the kids weren’t trying to be “un-American,” but to “[accentuate] the meaning of the words as regularly spoken in English.”
Oh I guess that makes it OK then. Substituting Allah for God. Yeh that makes sense. I’m just wondering if next week Lopez is planning to have them recite the pledge in Jewish, or French, or Italian, or Portugese, or Russian. No?
RE: How do Arabic speaking Christians say God?
Allah is the Arabic word for God (literally ‘the God’, as the initial “Al-” is the definite article).
It is used mainly by Muslims to refer to God in Islam, Arab Christians, and often, albeit not exclusively, by Bahá’ís, Arabic-speakers, Indonesian, Malaysian and Maltese Christians, and Mizrahi Jews.
God = God
Allah = devil
There is a 180 degree difference Lopez you nincompoop
This misleads the students to be blinded to the enemy The teachers should leave our American anthem and pledge of allegiance alone. They are as short simple straightforward and easily understandable as is possible. They don’t become any clearer for American children when recited in foreign languages. (Did American schools recite the pledge inGerman or Japanese during WW2?)
I mean, this is really outrageous.
How about one nation under Yahweh? I wonder if they’ll allow that.
I believe the language of the US is ENGLISH.
There is the old story of Congress not making GERMAN the official language by one vote.
I believe it was that the German speakers in the US wanted the Congressional Record printed in German so they could read it, but it was voted down.
This public school teacher would be asking that question at the next board meeting.
Actually, we ARE now muslim territory. Muslim president. Muslim national political advisors. Muslim accomodations in our public schools. Muslim exemption from Obamacare. We are muslim territory. Nothing we can do about it now.
Then play them Red Skelton's line by line reading and analysis. They may not know who he was but his message is clear and the words are in English which is a language many of the students in the class should recognize and understand.
On January 14, 1969, I presented "The Little Old Man" as a teacher. The time was 1923.The students had finished reciting the Pledge of Allegiance which at the time was but 10 years old. The old sage called the children together and said--
"Boys and girls, I have been listening to you recite the Pledge of Allegiance all semester and it appears that it has become monotonous to you or could it be you do not know the meaning of those words. If I may, I would like to recite the Pledge and give to you a definition of the words.Since I was a small boy, two states have been added to our nation, and two words have been added to the Pledge of Allegiance "under God." Wouldn't it be a pity if someone said, "That's a prayer" and that would be eliminated from schools, too?
I----meaning me, an individual, a committee of one.
Pledge----dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self pity.
Allegiance----my love and my devotion.
To the Flag----our standard, Old Glory, a symbol of freedom. Wherever she waves, there is respect because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts freedom is everybody's job.
Of the United----that means that we have all come together.
States----individual communities that have united into 48 great states. 48 individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose, all divided with imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common cause, and that's love of country.
And to the Republic----a republic, a state in which sovereign power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern. And government is the people and it's from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.
For which it stands!
One nation----meaning, so blessed by God.
Indivisible----incapable of being divided.
With Liberty----which is freedom and the right of power to live one's life without threats or fear or any sort of retaliation.
And justice----The principle and quality of dealing fairly with others.
For all.----which means, boys and girls, it's as much your country as it is mine."
Wonder if they would have done something similar after Pearl Harbor - used Japanese cultural phrases and stuff in schools?
Juro fidelidad a la bandera
de Los Estados Unidos de America,
y a la republica que representa,
con libertad y justicia para todos.
I was in a bilingual program in elementary school. We said the Pledge in Spanish every day. Not sure what impression it had on the Spanish speaking kids who were supposed to be learning English, but I guess it was better than not saying the Pledge at all.
“Allah” is Satan, look it up. In the Koran he calls himself “the great deceiver.” Now WHO else could be the “great deceiver” but Satan himself?
If they just translated the Pledge and recited it in Arabic, they have committed heresay and are subject to being beheaded.
Such a pledge would be outside ‘Islam’.
It may not matter much to the students, but lesser crimes against ‘Islam’ have resulted in uprisings.
I thought the vote was to have the official language Greek.
One further point, "Allah", at least in post-Hijric usage has an implied singularity, meaning "The [One and Only] God", in that there can be only one God.
When Muhammad died in 632, Abu-Bakr (The First Muslim Caliph) is quoted as saying
"O ye men, whoever amongst you worshipped Muhammad, let him know that Muhammad is dead, and whoever amongst you worshipped Allah, let him know that Allah is Living, there is no death for Him."
When this story originally broke back in January, it was reported that this was part of some ‘multicultural’ program, where students periodically recited the edge in different languages. French and Spanish were mentioned, and maybe one or two others.
But don't DARE say it in English, cuz that's offensive to worshippers of the moon god and therefore illegal.
You beat me to it... I was looking for the Red Skelton recitation and then diverted to other related hits... Tears welled up as I recalled The United States of America as it was not too long ago...
At any rate here is the link to the Red Skelton version:
and then here is the link to the Charlie Daniels tribute to Red’s version...
Maybe next week the kids can recite the Lords Prayer in Arabic,
these idiots that are hired cannot stick with curriculam but have to change the idealism of American values to suit their fancy! This is not an Arabic Nation and never will be.
Stick to education, not to relinquish a Nation to ones that want to bring her down! Pink Slip deserved!
Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.
Allah does not believe in liberty and justice for all. Muslims believe in poverty and oppression under sharia and communism for all those in the peasant class.
This lopez fool is an “educator”? More like a child abuser and an anti-American dingbat loser. I’d bet he’s an illegal alien him self.
Ditto. It’s not a different language, same meaning in this case. I was always told a true Muslim would never swear or pledge to anything invoking the name Allah.
I find it utterly absurd the way this country has coddled Islam after all the attacks they have made on our countrymen and especially after 9/11.
“How about one nation under Yahweh?”
Good thing they didn’t say “gee hove ah.”
I always roll my eyes at any idiot woman I see wearing that burka get up in America. She doesn’t have to play that game here.
Obsolete. Try "OMA".
