Posted on 08/20/2002 7:14:52 AM PDT by Stand Watch Listen
It has been said that education does not make fools; it merely develops them. A quick survey of American education in the post-September 11th landscape reveals that the blissful ignorance of the uneducated is being traded for something else - namely, indoctrination.
The most high-profile educational debacle of late is centered at the University of North Carolina. Incoming freshmen at UNC are being required to read "Approaching the Qur'an: The Early Revelations" by Michael Sells. The book is comprised of the 35 earliest suras - the basic division of the Qur'an.
The students are required to read the book and take part in an orientation week, faculty-guided discussion for "a couple of hours" according to UNC Chancellor James Moeser. UNC officials want the 4,200 transfer students and freshmen coming to Chapel Hill to understand something about the September 11th hijackers and their motives.
Last month, three in-coming UNC freshmen brought a lawsuit. The plaintiffs consist of one evangelical Protestant, one Catholic and one Jew, and remain anonymous, being listed as John Doe No. 1, John Doe No. 2 and Jane Roe.
The students' pleas for a restraining order against the orientation program fell on unsympathetic ears last week when U.S. District Judge Carlton Tilley rejected the request. So the Qur'an discussion will proceed.
A less visible but more outlandish "educational" project has been taking place in the Byron Union School District in Byron, California, which has led two families there to file suit.
In the Byron district's plan, students were doing much more than reading the Qur'an. Students were to choose a Muslim name, dress themselves in Muslim garb and, in a simulation of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, they were to give up their lunch one day. Perhaps most offensive, the students took place in a mock jihad game which the students described as "fun."
All this leaves one with the most basic question: Why?
Certainly educational advocates of tolerance and diversity (and all the ulterior agenda that accompany those concepts) are in favor of promoting a culture that is not a Western culture. But in their zealousness to be anti-European, anti-Christian and anti-American, they have set a most dangerous precedent.
Placed into proper perspective, what has happened in almost unfathomable. The hijackers of September 11th were radical adherents to Islam, whose penultimate goal is to see the world come under Islam (the term meaning the very will of God Almighty as set forth in the Qur'an).
If we don't understand the endgame of religious fanatics, we don't understand anything.
There has been a litany of jingoistic statements that the Islamic terrorist forces hate America either because America is prosperous or because America is free or because America is the friend of Israel - and while there is an element of truth in these statements, the unpleasant truth is that America is hated because it is not a Muslim country. America is the land of the infidel, America does not recognize the will of Allah, America does not know the truth set forth in the Qur'an.
Contrary to what some civil libertarians may say, Al Queda doesn't care if Americans loose their "freedoms" because they don't recognize American-style freedoms as such.
They do not claim victory if the U.S. government becomes more intrusive in the lives of its citizens. (The fight against intrusive government is and will remain the preeminent domestic fight for all Americans, regardless of who our external enemies may be.) To these radicals, there is only freedom in following the edicts of the Qur'an and in
subservience to Allah's will.
In the mind of the terrorists of Al Queda, the attacks of September 11th were not only a political and military victory but a spiritual one. While the 19 hijackers carried out their mission with levels of destruction and devastation in excess of the planners' best hopes, it is in the reaction of the American government and American academia that they see a grand and glorious triumph.
Since the day of the attack, the president of the United States has called Islam "peaceful" and "noble." American students now read the Qur'an and mimic Islamic religious practices in state-funded schools -- something not granted to the long-established Judeo-Christian creeds.
The Islamic fundamentalists must see all these signs as a great blessing from Allah. Their God has obviously used the successful jihad of September 11th to open the eyes of Americans to the truth of the Qur'an.
As the American president lauds their religion and American youth now are required to read their holy writ, how can any radical Muslim help but think that Allah is on their side in this new Crusade?

Free Congress Foundation
We are such fools to allow them to get a foothold in our society and to begin their jihad against each of us and our chosen religion and God.
"My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge"- Hosea 4:6
And most are being recruited while in jail.
Becoming Muslim, yes.
Quite a few (white, Muslim) Albanian immigrants in New York City, though. Not unusual to get mugged in the South Bronx by a white guy these days, unlike thirty years ago. Profiling? You bet.
Or, it's just the opposite. I think their objective is to distance Islam from 9/11, to somehow convince otherwise rational onlookers that Islam is "misunderstood," that the Muslims who claim to practice it are lovers of peace and harmony.
The PC folks wish to marginalize those who practice true, fundamental (i.e. Koran-believing) Islam. Instead, we should all let the facts convince the misled "peace-loving" Muslims to open their eyes, admit their mistake, and denounce Islam as the religion of murder.
We are now at a place where it is very politically incorrect to even suggest there is only one way to God although as Christians we know Jesus said, "I AM THE WAY." We are all supposed to be tolerant of others belief that if you're a 'good person' you will make it. It's a lie and goes against everything Jesus taught.
You are playing right into the hands of those who dispise religion and those who want to replace your religion with their.

Think about it!
It's called "knowing your enemy". It's why I, back in my USAF days, studied Russian, occaisionally read Russian literature, and kept up on the news (and intelligence data) coming from over there.
Now it's a new war, and a new enemy. The better we understand them, the more culture-specific weaknesses we can detect and exploit against them. . . .
Good point. My fear of this trend is that it does appeal to those who hate others, who want an excuse for violence and revenge. Maybe that is the draw - they are looking for a way to live with hate and cover it as only religion.
How great for them - a "religious" group that acts like the KKK.
If this is true - it indeed is of Satan - not God.

Your post, due to its thoughtful content, is in violation of posting guidelines on FR--namely, thoughtful posts on hot-button issues are strictly forbidden. Acceptable posts on the topic of Islam must call for the extermination of all Muslims in the name of a merciful God.
If the lure is hatred and revenge under the cover of religion - it could last for those who have a need to live with hate yet feel good about themselves. Any act would be an act of purification against the infidels - not merely sadism, murder, violence, perversion, revenge because then only other Muslims are worthy of freedom from all this hate. The infidel is a nothing and any revenge is authorized by their "god".
It's not a book bashing Islam, but one explaining it and compares Islam to Christianity.
Remember when John Ashcroft said Allah wants his followers to shed blood for him and Jesus shed his blood for us. There was such an upraor but that is exactly what the difference is.
Congratulations! You have won the prize for "Most Perceptive Analysis" of Islam.
True - but that is not the purpose of the teaching in our schools. Acceptance is the purpose. Acceptance and indoctrination of our young to accept the Muslim takeover of this country.
Absolutly not. It's the other way around. If I tell you about Jesus I'm not going to kill you if you don't accept him but is a Moslem tells me about Allah and I don't accept him, they have every right ( according to their belief) to kill me. Big difference.
Those are the names of some "Gods" that other people believe in just as you believe in your "God". They all probably think that your "God" is garbage, as you think their "God" is.
Again: Think about it.
Thanks for explaining that. I do feel better. ;););)
God is God. not their god or our god etc. There is One God who died for our sins and his last words on the cross was. " It is finished". meaning, I did what needed to be done.
Mohommad preached a different god and not the one who died for our sins.
Or Christianity. ;)
Anyone can have that opinion but not everyone believes it, so let's keep religion out of politics and give it the respect it deserves.
Ain't it a shame? The eternal rewards are worth every minute of work! Actually, the joy of being a Christian right here and now is pretty wonderfulj.
