Nothing to see here: Superintendent Mohammad Islam promises to remove Holocaust denial assignments
Young Conservatives ^ | 5/6/14 | David Rufful

Rialto Unified School District called this “an exercise in critical thinking” for eighth-graders… This middle school tasked its eighth-graders to study whether the [Holocaust] worst genocide of the 20th century actually happened, or whether it was a myth designed for “political and monetary gain.” It also sent students to an Australian Holocaust-denier website for one of its principal sources. Anti-Defamation League considered whether Common Core standards are to blame… “ADL does not have any evidence that the assignment was given as part of a larger, insidious, agenda,” the blog post read. “Rather, the district seems to have given the assignment with an intent, although misguided, to meet Common Core standards relating to critical learning skills.” Screen Shot 2014-05-06 at 12.26.19 PM Maybe Common Core isn’t to blame for this one… Mohammad Z. Islam, the interim superintendent of the Rialto Unified School District, about 50 miles east of Los Angeles, has promised to “assure that any references to the holocaust ‘not occurring’ will be stricken on any current or future Argumentative Research assignments,” Screen Shot 2014-05-06 at 12.27.13 PMScreen Shot 2014-05-06 at 12.27.02 PM District spokeswoman Syeda Jafri has said the the assignment “was an error.”

Mohammed Islam, is that what they call the Rialto school superintendent? But praying in school is illegal. Holocaust denial has already reared its ugly head in the schools in the UK, it was only a matter of time before it reached our schools, and what better place than southern California the land of fruits and nuts.( though in all fairness, we have more than our share here in FloriDUH!)

When I was in eighth grade, we turned out to the school gym to listen to an actual Holocaust survivor tell us of what he endured. Any doubts anyone might have had vanished within the first five minutes of listening this man speak of the horrors he endured.

I blame the humans that let moslems fester among us.

If Hitler arrived in CA would they let him run schools?

Probably.

Muslims are taking over faster than I had imagined. We will be like the UK and France soon and there doesn’t seem there is anything we can do to stop it. How long til the koran is required reading in public schools?

If your teacher, or superintendent is a moslem, you can guarantee that you will not hear the truth. Moslems are COMMANDED TO LIE if they can gain advantage by it.

All moslems are liars.

How many of these Muslim infiltrators are from Clinton’s Albanian “refugee” influx during the Bosnian war? Inquiring minds want to know where these people came from. They should never have been allowed into this country, a country they hate.

I seem to remember a few “republicans” (McCain, Dole) urging Slick to give even more help to the mohammedans.

Mohammed Z. Islam was probably Waterford T. Davenport before reciting “shahada”.

“Land of the fruits and nuts.” is a phrase I often use about CA and it refers to both the agriculture and population. For example: Agriculture; lettuce, figs, almonds. Population; Boxer, Pelosi.

The late Mayor Ed Koch, a lifelong democrat, had the intellectual honesty to admit that if Shitler were to run for NYC mayor all he need to do is register as a dem and he'd win in a landslide with 60% of the Jewish vote.
