Skip to comments.Islam indoctrination in U.S. textbooks
Posted on 06/03/2010 8:00:45 PM PDT by Coleus
Today's textbooks indoctrinate our children into Islam and are backed by court rulings allowing teachers to REQUIRE our children to bow down and pray to Allah "in demonstration." As Obama's non-jihadists plot to "internally cleanse" America shouting "Allah-Akbar," many of our children have simultaneously taken the position on their hands and knees and recited, "In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful. Praise be to Allah, Lord of Creation, The Compassionate, the Merciful, King of Judgment day! You alone we worship, and to You alone we pray for help, Guide us to the straight path."
Public outrage has caused some school districts to take pause in "simulating Islam," but not before Judge Phyllis Hamilton ruled in favor of the practice. Court transcripts quote: "the use of the Islam module was motivated by the purely secular purpose of instructing students about Islamic culture and history" and that a "non-secular purpose may only be found 'when...there was no question that the...activity was motivated WHOLLY be religious considerations." [omissions in transcript]
It is shocking that Hamilton could compose the following condemning the Ten Commandments while endorsing banners in front of a school that state, " "There is one God, Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet." This is her ruling, upheld by the Ninth Circuit:
"Similarly, plaintiffs claimed in oral argument that the display of the group banners showing portions of the Bismillah was analogous to the display of the Ten Commandments in school classrooms, which has been found unconstitutional. However, the display of the Ten Commandments in a classroom setting was found unconstitutional because the Supreme Court determined that upon objective review, the primary purpose for their display was to endorse Christianity. Here, in contrast, the primary purpose of the Islam module was the secular goal of educating students about Islamic culture. Thus, even the display of religious texts in a purely secular context will survive Constitutional review as well." (pdf link below)
Clinton's Presidential Guideline, "Religious Expression in Public School," states: "Students generally do not have a Federal right to be excused from lessons that may be inconsistent with their religious beliefs or practices." Originally drafted with Abdurahman Alamoudi (currently in prison for terrorist acts) and in the hands of the ACLU and Judge Hamilton (appointed by Clinton), there went religious freedom.
Thus, public school teachers can REQUIRE your child to take a Muslim name, fast for Ramadan, repeat by heart for weeks that Allah is the only god, that he alone they worship and display banners with the same sentiments. One teacher required her students to recite the prayer every time they exited the classroom for two weeks. What does it take to become a Muslim? Reciting that prayer. Oh but wait, they have to believe it...never mind then. That makes it okay that the last words that some of our troops heard before beheading are the same words our children pray on their hands and knees in public school.
ISLAM INDUCTION IN OUR TEXTBOOKS
Houghton Mifflin's "Across the Centuries" underwent multiple revisions led by Nader F. Darehshori, CEO, previously a school teacher in Iran. In the Islam section among other practices, our children are asked to assume they are Muslim soldiers. In the Jewish section, the ONLY imagination practice is to imagine they are with the Jews when they were conquered and forced to live away from their homeland. In the Christian section, the ONLY imagination practice was to imagine being in the buried catacombs of the dead Christians. (Christians/body of Christ back in the tomb, how symbolic).
For a while, Houghton Mifflin posted denials that the Council of Islamic Education contributed to the textbook. But then articles quoting Abigail Jungreis, Editorial Director of HM were found on Muslim sites applauding their input, especially information about the Crusades...so for the Christian section our children are given the Crusades from the Muslim perspective. Meanwhile the Islam section states:
Just don’t let them draw that prophet dude in Art class...
What happened to separation of church and state? Are mosques exempt?
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
What hidey-hole did the ACLU go off into?
The liberal dirtbags just need to keep bringing it on ....... it helps our cause.
An authentic simulation of Islamic activities would risk getting the schools blown to smithereens.
Plenty of separation of CHURCH and state, but not so much for mosque and state. I guess that's because the imam infesting the White House has declared that the U.S. is the largest muslim nation.
Remove sound doctrine and you leave a vacuum for false doctrine to fill.
Obama’s a liar. We are not a Muslim nation. We are and always have been a Christian nation.
“Lord of Creation”
I’m sure it would satisfy many here that they are now teaching Creation in the public schools.
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
This is one of those rare instances where I think that the homeschool ping list needs to see a thread that was ping for the Another Reason to Homeschool list.
Granted, this is really another reason to homeschool, but this is so breathtakingly appalling that I thought it deserves as much publicity as possible.
Imagine the fallout if they quoted from the Bible and had the kids recite the Lord’s Prayer to teach cultural diversity and tolerance.
True, but saying 0bama’s a liar is like saying the sun rises in the east and salmon swim upstream. It’s what they do.
All that is good, truthful and virtuous is being attacked on every front.
I’m feeling overwhelmed right now.
What’s an *ACLU*?
Doesn’t Islam mean “submission”?
I imagine they'd react something like this....
It will be a “memorable” day when my grandkids are required to “simulate” Islam in school, judge or no judge.
1) We are a Christian nation,
2) Separation of church and state is an unconstitutional heresy, and
3) Through constitutional free exercise Christians and the Church must get back the reigns of government, not through unconstitutional state establishment but through constitutionally protected free exercise of religion.
Take your kids out of school, people.
And for physical education courses they can teach children how to slay non-believers. The muslims have holy writings that promise that you should ‘cut down’ or slay non-believers when you meet them and promises that Allah will not punish you for doing this.
C’mon, dhimmis, bend over and assume the position. /sarc
That’s what I hear.
They know how to play the system here in the US.
They know that the techniques that they use elsewhere won’t work here so they’re using our system and our Constitution against us. Actually, the liberal misinterpretation of the Constitution.
But infiltration and indoctrination are going to work better here than outright terrorism. Better for them to bide their time and make sure of the victory in the long run, then push too fast and wake us up and find us pushing back.
They can wait.
That is an unnecessary quip.
Go and bow to Allah, %$@&*#%!
Adding it to my order list. Thanks!
The shift in the “Court” of 1947 is the most astounding so far. You will not regret the purchase.
Already had a “taste” of that knowledge. We got a DVD entitled “America’s Godly Heritage” from netflix. It was MOST EXCELLENT. Just wasn’t long enough, lol.
(...which is exactly why we homeschool)
This whole thing is BS of the first order.
That’s the Anti-Christian Litigants’ Union. Oddly, it seems not to trouble the ACLU that Muslims kill people for homosexuality, while Christian opposition (non-lethal) to homosexuality is cause for great angst.
There is no separation of religion and political rule under Islam. It is a system of theocratic rule that discriminates against non-muslims under law.
Don't be. In our corner we have God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We have the armies of heaven, God's angels dispatched to serve and protect us invisibly. We have God's Word. We have God's people, just waiting to work with us for His glory.
In their corner, they only have that old liar, Satan, a being that tends to overreach himself time after time, then breaks his tools in a fit of spite when he fails.
What happens in my house is more important than what happens in the White House.
I can do something in my house to change the course of history. I can raise my own children "in the nurture and admonition of the Lord" to be people of purpose and destiny, people who do not participate in the cult of Caesar (Public "education"), and who do not take Caesar as seriously as he takes himself. Our future is as bright as the promises of God! See my tagline.
We need to stop bending over & allowing muslims to push their beliefs on us. If muslims can’t adapt to being American they should leave asap. We don’t need them here. It is not the will of Allah that they live here, they should live where their beliefs & way of life is normal, like their own hell hole countries. IMO muslims are a threat to our safety & a threat to our children’s safety. Our children are our future & we should protect them. As for teaching my child about muslims, I have started at the crusades & will not spare her the beheading & other horrible things muslims do & have done. I see no need to expose her to honor Allah, it is not my religion & how dare anybody expect that I should do so. If anything I will remind her weekly about 911 & the other terror attacks around the world.
20 years ago, when I was in public high school, I was being taught how good Islam was and about the two large Islamic groups - Sunni and Shia (but, not about them murdering each other). We were taught how about the horrible Crusades and all the great accomplishments of Islam (Algebra, etc.).
Now, I don't believe the Algebra came from the Islamists. They are more like the aliens in Independence day that take over technologies and cultures.
Islam and the Psychology of the Musulman by Andre Servier, was published in French in 1922 and translated to English 1923. Click the link to read it for yourself. Here's a typical observation:
I'm not sure how anyone thinks that could be true in the context of the First Amendment, but that's why we have a Second Amendment. My children will not be indoctrinated on beliefs that contradict God's Law.
You gotta stand for something, or you’ll fall for anything.
