Pro-Islam indoctrination in schools
Obama Praises Moves to Recognize Eid as Holiday. President Barack Obama on Thursday
[7/16/2015] wished Muslims in America and around the world "Eid Mubarak!" or a blessed Eid, praising
efforts to recognize the end of Ramadan as a holiday. "The holiday is a reminder to every
American of the importance of respecting those of all faiths and beliefs," he said in a statement
that also hailed New York City's decision to add Eid to the official school calendar.
Staff Trained On Islam, Bows To Allah At Local Mosque On Taxpayer Dime. Approximately
50 teachers and officials from Pennsylvania's recently gathered at a taxpayer-funded workshop during
church services at a local Baptist church to learn about the problems Christian children face in
today's secular educational environment. No, wait. Scratch that. That didn't happen.
That's totally wrong. Instead, approximately 50 teachers and staffers in the town of Lebanon, Pa.
attended a workshop at a local mosque to learn all about Islam and Arab culture, EAGnews.org reports.
The workshop occurred on Monday [6/8/2015]. It was, indeed, funded by taxpayers. Lebanon School
District superintendent Marianne T. Bartley was among the school officials on hand.
University Sides With Islamists Against Feminist Speaker. Duke University's mission
statement says it is dedicated to "promot[ing] an intellectual environment built on a commitment to
free and open inquiry." Yet when Asra Nomani, a journalist and author of two books, came to speak on
"The Paradox of Women in Islam," the university almost rescinded her invitation. The Muslim Students
Association sent an email smearing her as a friend of "Islamophobes" and discouraged students from attending.
principal cancels Muslim event, apologizes. It was pitched as an event that would "celebrate diversity" —
students would wear a headscarf for a day to get a taste of Islamic culture. It backfired. Mason High School canceled "A
Covered Girl Challenge," and principal Mindy McCarty-Stewart sent an apology Thursday [4/16/2015] to district families.
Writing Assignment: 'Pretend You Are a Muslim'. High school students in Wisconsin were
asked to pretend that they were Muslims for a 10th grade World History writing assignment. Union
Grove High School teacher Beth Urban asked students to write a five paragraph essay in which they pretend
they are a Muslim male or female in the U.S. "Give three examples of what you do daily for your
religion and any struggles you face," Urban instructed. The assignment has some questioning why
this is part of a World History class and also if similar assignments were given for other religions.
Core ties to Libya, Qatar, Saudi Arabia. "Where did Common Core come from?" is a
question I often hear from parents as I travel the country speaking about the Islamic infiltration
of America. Because in 2014-15 America, public school students via Common Core are:
• Participating in public school-sponsored trips to mosques via taxpayer expense, girls
must wear head scarves (Colorado parents complain)
• Debating whether or not
the Holocaust was "merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain," (an
eighth-grade assignment defended by the Rialto Unified School District, Los Angeles)
• Pledging allegiance in Arabic (New York)
• Observing two
"Muslim holy days," (New York City)
• Being taught Islamic vocabulary lessons
• Being taught Islamic culture (Tennessee)
Being taught world history from Islamic perspective (Florida) that includes learning about
the five pillars of Islam (Maryland father, a Marine Corps veteran, complains and is banned from
• Told to proselytize by creating a pamphlet about Islam to
"introduce Islam to 3rd graders" that introduces Allah to children as the same God of the Christians
and Jews (Michigan)
• Reciting in class the Shahada, "There is No God but
Allah," and the Muslim call to prayer (Massachusetts)

Core Islamic Indoctrination Textbook Has Floridians Outraged. Common Core Islamic
indoctrination of students in American schools is overt. This is the goal. In Volusia County
Florida, hundreds are protesting the ode to Islam that is "World History," a Common Core approved
high school history textbook. With an entire chapter dedicated to the virtues of Islam, and not a
single chapter for Christianity, the textbook has Floridians in a frenzy. And who is the biggest
pusher of Common Cores besides leftist progressives? The Islamic Society of North America, another
Muslim Brotherhood front group, along with Hamas-CAIR; and in Florida, Hamas-CAIR is on the offensive.
County, TN Schools Ban Christianity and TEACH Islam. Julie West, founder of Parents
for Truth in Education, finds some scary stuff on the Williamson County, TN Schools website. She
goes to the 7th grade Social Studies page and points out a few shocking things, beginning with the
fact that we have been told “Common Core is only Language Arts (English) and Math.” First red
flag. Here are other red flags that prove Common Core has an Islamic agenda prepared for the
minds of our next American generation. [...]
N.Y. School Apologizes For Reciting Pledge Of Allegiance In Arabic. The pledge was
read in Arabic during Wednesday morning [3/18/2015] announcements at Pine Bush High School, located 65 miles
northwest of New York City.
nation under Allah: Fury after school recites pledge in Arabic. Students at Pine Bush
High School in Pine Bush, New York, knew right away there was something not quite right about the
Pledge of Allegiance. That's because the pledge was being recited in Arabic. "One nation
under Allah," the student body president announced over the intercom system on Wednesday
[3/18/2015]. Reaction in the upstate New York high school was swift, and so was the backlash,
The Times Herald-Record reports. Furious students tried to shout down the recitation in their
classrooms. Other students sat down in protest.
Accredits Nation's First Muslim College ... Founded By Jihadists. The same California
college board that accredited Stanford and Berkeley has certified the nation's first Muslim college
in what the left is cheering as a breakthrough for diversity. In fact, it's a breakthrough for
jihadism. The Western Association of Schools and Colleges last week officially —
and naively — recognized Zaytuna College, making the Islamist school eligible to receive
federal grants and accept foreign Muslim students on visas. But before liberals celebrate too
loudly, they should know that Zaytuna was founded by pro-jihadists who hate America and Jews and
want to turn America into an Islamic state.
Muslim College in US to Gain Accreditation. The Western Association of Schools and
Colleges has bestowed "initial accreditation" on Zaytuna College, a Muslim institution in Berkeley,
California, making it the first accredited Muslim college in the nation. The association will
permit the college to offer an accredited "Bachelor of Arts in Islamic Law and Theology," according
to the College Fix.
York City schools will close for Muslim Eid holidays. New York City will recognize
Muslim holidays Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha on the official school calendar starting in September,
Mayor de Blasio and Chancellor Carmen Fariña said Wednesday [3/4/2015]. In the upcoming
2015-2016 school year, schools will close Sept. 24 for Eid al-Adha so that thousands of Muslim
families in the city can observe the day, de Blasio said. Eid al-Fitr, which falls during the
summer, will be designated a holiday for kids attending summer school.
father furious at school lesson: 'Muhammad is the messenger of God'. Ron Wagner, a
Florida father, said his son's world history book has gone too far with a lesson that teaches
Muhammad is the messenger of God. One part of the book, for instance, reads: "There is
no god, but God. Muhammad is the messenger of God," he said, quoting from his son's Lyman High
School history book, WFTV reported. "Students were instructed to recite this prayer as the first
Pillar of Islam, off of the board at the teacher's instruction," Mr. Wagner said. "For it to be
mandatory and part of the curriculum and in the textbooks, didn't seem right."
protests Islamic lessons at school. Ron Wagner read from part of his son's world history book, "There
is no god, but God. Muhamad is the messenger of God." Wagner is not reading the Five Pillars of Islam
from the Quran, but rather his son's 10th-grade world history book from Lyman High School. "Students were instructed
to recite this prayer as the first Pillar of Islam, off of the board at the teacher's instruction," Wagner claims.
Islamic Indoctrination Being Taught in LA Public Schools? Concerns have arisen over
the perceived teaching of Islam in California's seventh grade school curriculum. Questions have been
raised as to whether the education within these classrooms are merely teaching about Islam or
preaching the faith, in what many now view as a scandal of indoctrination of youth.
Day at NP3 High School. A Jihad Watch reader in the Sacramento area has sent me [a]
flier, showing that today is NP3 Hijab Day at NP3 High School. NP3 stands for Natomas Pacific
Pathways Prep; the school is in the Natomas Unified School District in Sacramento. This all
started with a student at NP3 High who is an intern for the Hamas-linked terror organization the
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). This student gave a presentation about Islamophobia
and Islam at what was a mandatory staff meeting that also included an official CAIR representative.
The school then now [sic] decided to sponsor an official "Hijab Day" in cooperation with Hamas-linked CAIR.
The flier also shows that another Muslim Brotherhood-linked organization, the Muslim Students Association,
is also involved.
will appoint Muslim to the House Intelligence Committee who said US schools should be like Islamic
madrassas. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is set to appoint a Muslim lawmaker to
the Intelligence Committee, congressional aides said Tuesday, giving him access to some of America's
most closely held secrets in the war on terror. The move will come as the world is still
grappling with an al-Qaeda death squad's massacre last week of journalists at the French satire
magazine Charlie Hebdo, executed because they had published a cartoon of the Muslim prophet Muhammad.
Muslim call to prayer to
sound at Duke University. A weekly call to prayer for Muslims will be heard at Duke University starting
Friday [1/16/2015], school officials said. Members of the Duke Muslim Students Association will chant the call,
known as adhan or azan, from the Duke Chapel bell tower each Friday at 1 p.m. The call to prayer will last
about three minutes and be "moderately amplified," officials said in a statement Tuesday [1/13/2015].
The Editor says...
"Moderately amplified," at first. Then the volume will probably go up half a decibel every week.
Muslims know all about boiled frogs. These things have to be introduced gradually.
backs down, cancels Muslim call to prayer from chapel tower. Duke University has
abandoned its plan to transform the bell tower on the Methodist school's neo-gothic cathedral into a
minaret where the Muslim call to prayer was to be publicly broadcast. "Duke remains committed to
fostering an inclusive, tolerant and welcoming campus for all of its students," university spokesman
Michael Schoenfeld said in a statement. "However, it was clear that what was conceived as an
effort to unify was not having the intended effect."
Prayer Call from Duke Chapel Cancelled Within 48 Hours of Announcement. Duke University has abandoned
its plan to transform the bell tower on the Methodist school's neo-gothic cathedral into a minaret where the Muslim
call to prayer was to be publicly broadcast. "Duke remains committed to fostering an inclusive, tolerant and
welcoming campus for all of its students," university spokesman Michael Schoenfeld said in a statement.
"However, it was clear that what was conceived as an effort to unify was not having the intended effect."
The Editor asks...
What was the intended effect, if not the popularization (the endorsement) of Islam?
Bell Tower to Minaret and Back Again. Supposedly Duke University thought turning the
majestically Gothic bell tower of famous Duke Chapel into an Islamic minaret for every Friday call
to prayer, heralded as "interreligious reimagining of a university icon," would be non-controversial.
But the bow to campus multiculturalist ideology, thanks to nationwide publicity, barely lasted 24 hours.
A campus spokesman curtly announced that what had been intended as unifying had become undesirably divisive.
So the Muslim student group, which serves the five percent of Duke students said to be from Islamic backgrounds,
will continue to worship in the chapel basement and will issue prayer calls outside the chapel instead.
Duke cancels plan
for Muslim call to prayer from tower. Days after announcing that a Muslim call to prayer would echo
from its historic chapel tower, Duke University changed course Thursday [1/15/2015] following a flurry of calls
and emails objecting to the plan.
Bureaucrats At Duke Plotted Broadcast Of Islamic Prayer Calls From Iconic Bell Tower.
That plan was rescinded at the last minute after massive public outrage. But wait! There's so much
more! An impressively thorough investigation in The Chronicle, Duke's student newspaper, shows that
employees of Duke Chapel's Christian and interfaith ministries came up with the idea to transmit the Islamic
call to prayer on the campus. The Christian-hatched plan was formulated back in September because,
advocates for the sounding of the Muslim prayer call proclaimed, the stately Duke Chapel has traditionally
accommodated events for a diverse array of religious groups and student groups.
Allah in our
schools. Jihad, in its many guises and forms, is being waged across America. No aspect
of our society has been untouched by this relentless attack. Including our schools. Our education
system has been infiltrated by the enemy, as the next generation of Americans is brainwashed with
white-washed Islam. The assault is coming from all directions and it never sleeps.
Core Vocabulary Teaches About Mohammed and Islam. Farmville, North Carolina has given
their high school seniors Commonc Core aligned lessons on Prophet Mohammed and Islam. Some parents
and students would like to know why. "It really caught me off guard," a Farmville Central High
School student who was in the class said, according to Todd Starnes. "If we are not allowed to
talk about any other religions in school — how is this appropriate?"
School: Islamic vocabulary lesson part of Common Core standards. Parents in Farmville,
North Carolina want to know why their children were given a Common Core vocabulary assignment in an
English class that promoted the Prophet Muhammad and the Islamic faith. "It really caught me off

to talk about any other religions in school — how is this appropriate?" The Islamic
vocabulary worksheet was assigned to seniors.

School Teacher Distributes Nation of Islam Racist Handouts For Third Grade Instruction. You only need to
read the following paragraph to spot the intents and motives of the third grade teacher for Harold McCormick Elementary
School teacher in Elizabethton, Tennessee: "The teacher also told Sommer [parent] that her son was not supposed
to take the Nation of Islam handout home. It was supposed to stay in the classroom. That bit of news caused her
great alarm." [...] Yes, one can see how a parent of a third grader might take exception to such classroom instructional
materials provided by the Nation of Islam. But the sunlight brought by a parent to media reporter Todd Starnes has
created an even worse situation for the school, the administration thereof, and the school superintendent et al.

to Host Radical Terror Sheikh Who Advocated Killing of U.S. Soldiers. Sheikh Rachid al-Ghannouchi, the head of Tunisia's
controversial Islamist Ennahda Movement, is scheduled to head a lecture Tuesday afternoon [9/26/2014] [at] Yale's Law School, according to
the school's website. Al-Ghannouchi's upcoming appearance at the Ivy League school could become controversial given the sheik's
longtime support for radical terror groups and his past calls for Muslims to wage "unceasing war against the Americans."
students bring hate, intimidation to campus, critics say. Students for Justice in
Palestine, with nearly 100 chapters on campuses around the nation, has become increasing strident
in promoting its agenda, staging "die-ins," handing out mock eviction notices in dormitories, and
raising funds for Hamas-aligned groups, according to Jewish watchdog groups. Individual members
have been accused of assaulting students, vandalizing property and hurling anti-Semitic slurs at
Jewish students, all in the name of their cause.
of meeting with terror groups on state university's dime. Responding to charges a
professor engaged in Mideast politics on the taxpayer dime, San Francisco State University
officials offered bland reassurances that the school investigates "any allegations that a member of
the University community misused state funds." According to a California Public Records Act
inquiry requested by the nonprofit group AMCHA Initiative, "Professor Rabab Abdulhadi received more
than $7,000 from SFSU to fly to Jordan, the West Bank and Israel to meet with members of known
admits campaign to install Muslim staff at schools. A senior teacher at the centre of
an alleged plot by religious hard-liners to seize control of governing bodies has admitted that
there was a campaign to install Muslims in leading roles at schools in Birmingham. Nearly
20 schools in the city are currently being investigated over claims that male and female pupils
were segregated, sex education banned and extremist clerics praised in assemblies.
lie and wives must have sex or go to hell, Trojan Horse pupils told. Children were
taught that all Christians are liars and attempts were made to introduce Sharia law in classrooms as
part of an alleged 'Trojan Horse' takeover plot of Birmingham schools, an inquiry has found.
The inquiry commissioned by Birmingham City Council found evidence of religious extremism in 13 schools
as school governors and teachers tried to promote and enforce radical Islamic values. Schools put
up posters warning children that if they didn't pray they would "go to hell", Christmas was cancelled
and girls were taught that women who refused to have sex with their husbands would be "punished" by
angels "from dusk to dawn".
Islamization of American Public Schools. Endless concessions and accommodations to
Islamic demands only give way to more demands for even more Islam, as shown in the recent blockbuster
revelations of an Islamic takeover of UK public schools. What is less well known is the same kinds
of things are happening here in the United States. So outrageous were the allegations that the
usually subdued and sharia-compliant British authorities initiated an investigation into the charges
that devout Muslims covertly sought to "Islamize" the public schools in the UK. The bombshell
was dropped last month in a leaked letter, describing an operation purportedly named "Trojan Horse."
An Exercise in Indoctrination: Cal Professor Requires
Students to Tweet about 'Islamophobia'. A University of California, Berkeley professor is requiring 100 students to create Twitter
accounts and post comments about "Islamophobia," anti-Islamist Muslim activist Tarek Fatah reports. In his Toronto Sun column
Wednesday [2/5/2014], Fatah, a founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress, describes the "panicked message" he received from a Berkeley student
taking a class taught by Hatem Bazian. Bazian directs the school's Islamophobia Research and Documentation Project.
The next five items pertain to England, but they serve as a warning to all:
of 8 are 'racist' if they miss Islam trip: School's threatening letter to parents is met with outrage. Parents were
ordered to send their children to a workshop on Islam or have them labelled as racist for the rest of their school career. They
were sent a letter warning that the primary school pupils would have a 'racial discrimination note' put on their records if they did
not go. Families were told to pay £5 per child for the Explore Islam trip next Wednesday [11/27/2013] to Staffordshire
University, which would involve Year 4 and Year 6 children being shown Islamic artefacts.
Liberal Preferences Meet Islamic Principles. There was a recent scandal that, as much as anything else,
illustrates the intellectual emptiness and moral ennui of the modern liberal man. It occurred in Britain but
reflects a wider phenomenon; what can be said about it can be said about happenings in Sweden, France, Holland, Canada
or Belgium — or the United States. It was discovered recently that Muslims in seven London schools were
indoctrinating children with Islamic propaganda, ignoring Western culture and refusing to inculcate the "British values"
of the moment. The situation was such that all of one school's library books were in Arabic and many students
couldn't tell investigators whether they should follow British or Sharia law or which was more important. And
one of these schools, mind you, was a state-run Church of England institution — that happens to now be
upwards of 80 percent Muslim.
Head teachers raise 'serious concerns' over Islamic school
take-over. Schools across Britain are likely to have been targeted in an alleged Islamist
plot to take over classrooms, head teachers have warned. The National Association of Head Teachers
said it had found "concerted efforts" to infiltrate at least six schools in Birmingham. But the
union also said that the scandal had "connections" to other large cities.
'Cover-up' by UK schools in
alleged Muslim takeover plot. Schools involved in an alleged plot to impose conservative Muslim teaching on pupils across
Britain's second city sought to deflect scrutiny by putting on hastily arranged "shows of cultural inclusivity", officials said Monday
[6/9/2014]. One school in Birmingham arranged an assembly on Easter and a lesson on Christianity especially for a visit by education
inspectors, according to Prime Minister David Cameron's Downing Street office. The finding is included in one of two official
reports into allegations of a plot to take control of the leadership of schools in the city in central England and impose Islamic
principles such as gender segregation. The so-called "Trojan Horse" plot was first raised in an anonymous letter, which was
leaked to the media earlier this year.
Rule for Islamists and Another for Everyone Else? It's not Fair. How long do you think a white teacher would last in a
British primary school if he were to tell his class of seven-year olds that all non-Christians were "filthy heathens"? [...] Not very
long, I expect. [...] So how come for one particular minority the rules are different? How come, when a Birmingham teacher told
his Local Education Authority that he had seen signs of an attempted Islamist takeover in local schools as early as 1993, his warnings
were ignored and he ended up being dismissed for "gross misconduct"?
Parents slam pro-Islam slant in Florida school
textbook. Hundreds of parents, angry at what they say is a biased student textbook with a decided pro-Islam slant, have launched a campaign
demanding equal religious representation and planned a protest at the school board meeting this week. The book, "World History," devotes fully
32 pages — an entire chapter — on "Muslim Civilizations," including descriptions of the Koran and a listing of the Five Pillars of
Islam, The Daily Caller reported. But noticeably missing is information on any other religion.
Christianity Under Attack in America. [Scroll
down] In 2001, the Byron Union School District in Byron, California instituted a three-week unit on Islam for 7th-graders. Students took Muslim
names, recited Islamic prayers, and celebrated Ramadan. When parents sued the school on the grounds that the course was "officially endorsing a religion,"
the U.S. Supreme Court rejected their appeal, leaving intact an earlier ruling by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that deemed that the unit did not
violate the Constitution and had an "instructional purpose." In 2009, the same court of appeals upheld a ban by Henry Jackson High School officials in
Everett, Washington against an instrumental performance of Ave Maria at a 2006 commencement ceremony.
New York schools may close for Muslim holidays.
Schools in New York, the biggest city in the U.S., might be about to implement shutdowns on certain Muslim holy days, as both mayoral candidates running for City
Hall have said they support such a move. A report in the New York Daily News says that Bill de Blasio, the Democrat, and Joe Lhota, his Republican
opponent, believe both Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha should be added to the holiday calendar along with other major religious observations, including Christmas,
Good Friday and Rosh Hashanah.
school students visit mosque, get Qur'an — not visiting church or synagogue. The public school officials behind this reveal by their
choices of visits that the real agenda here is to make these Tennessee students "accepting of the other," because that is the whole problem of jihad terrorism,
doncha know — if Americans were more accepting of Muslims and Islam, jihad terror would be a thing of the past. There are so many initiatives
like this, such as the Arkansas school that planned to feature a Muslim speaker on September 11, that it is hard to escape the conclusion that they really
believe this nonsense.
Students Take Field Trip to Mosque,
Receive Koran. A Tennessee high school has decided to revise its field trip policy after a group of freshmen were taken to an Islamic mosque
where they were given copies of the Koran and while a student who opted out of the trip was given a worksheet that alleged Muslims treated their conquered
people better than the United States treated minorities. The students were in an honors world studies class at Hendersonville High School and the field
trips to the mosque as well as a Hindu temple were part of a three-week course on world religions. But some parents objected to the trips and wondered
why the school would tour a mosque but not a Christian church or a Jewish synagogue.
Pledge of Allegiance skipped,
Muslim poem read at Boston school on 9/11. The principal of Concord Carlisle High School in Boston issued an apology Wednesday after
a Muslim poem was recited over the intercom on the 12th anniversary of 9/11, and the Pledge of Allegiance was not. According to principal
Peter Badalament, a "small number" of people were outraged at the poem, which was meant to promote "cross-cultural understanding," Boston.com
reported. Apparently, the Pledge of Allegiance was not read because of some confusion.
Bulletin board at Wichita school showing Five Pillars of Islam
removed. A bulletin board at a Wichita elementary school that illustrated the Five Pillars of Islam has been removed "because of the misunderstanding
that has been promoted by ... one photograph," district officials said Monday [8/19/2013]. The bulletin board at Minneha Core Knowledge Magnet Elementary was intended
to aid students' study of major religions of the world, district spokeswoman Susan Arensman said in an e-mail. It featured five white, construction-paper
columns and the words, "The Five Pillars of Islam."
Kansas public school promotes 5 Pillars of
Islam. The display was reportedly part of a religion component being taught at Minneha Core Knowledge Magnet School, a school district
spokesperson told Fox News' Todd Starnes. "The bulletin board that originally caused the concern does represent the 5 Pillars of
Islam — in a historical context of their studies," the spokesperson said.
School Defends Textbook Calling
Muhammad "God's Messenger". School officials in Florida are defending a textbook that declares Muhammad as the "Messenger of God" after critics
accused an Islamic education group of launching a stealth jihad in American public school classrooms. The Prentice World History textbook being used in
Brevard Public Schools includes a 36-page chapter on Islam but no chapters on Christianity or Judaism.
Tucson schools to take
$465,000 from Arab charity with Muslim Brotherhood ties. Last week, the governing board of the Tucson Unified School District asked the
school board to accept a $465,000 curriculum grant from the Qatar Foundation International, a global philanthropic organization with strong ties to the
Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of the terrorist group Hamas. The grant money is intended to implement "innovative curricula and
teaching materials to be used in any Arabic language classroom," reports the Arizona Daily Independent.
Nominated as UC Student Regent. A UC Berkeley senior who is a venomous supporter of the jihad against Israel and member
of several Islamic supremacist groups with links to jihad terror has been nominated to become the University of California student
regent for the 2014-15 academic year. The student regent participates in a board that sets policies for the entire University
of California system, which consists of ten campuses throughout the state. Sadia Saifuddin is expected to be confirmed as
student regent by the full Board of Regents next month.
Islamizing the Public Schools.
The Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is pressuring public schools in this country to make
special accommodations for Muslim students and to deny comparable accommodations for students of other faiths. For example,
CAIR's instructional material for teachers entitled "An Educator's Guide to Islamic Religious Practices" advises schools to permit
Muslim students who wish to attend Friday congregational worship (known as Jum'ah) to "request a temporary release from school."
by low self-esteem, Florida high schoolers told. It's low self-esteem and the need for a "sense of belonging" that drives
terrorists to join groups that kill in the name of religion, according to an online lesson plan for Florida high school students.
The world history course on "Invisible Warfare" — offered by the Florida Virtual School, the nation's first statewide
Internet-based public high school — begins by asking students "what comes to mind" when considering the concept of
fundamentalism and then prompts them to think of the term in a religious context. It later defines terrorism as the act of using
fear or violence to accomplish certain political or religious goals.
Muslims in Maryland petition schools to
close on Eid, like on Christmas, Yom Kippur. Schools are usually closed on Easter Monday and Rosh Hashanah — why not Eid al-Fitr?
That's the question Mimi Hassanein, a resident of Brinkow, Md., asks herself every time the Eids fall on a school day. The two most important Islamic
holidays — Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha — are traditionally spent praying and feasting with family and friends. But Hassanein says
that every year, her grandchildren and other Muslim youth in her school district are forced to choose between their religion and their grades.
university sounds alarm over segregation at Muslim student events. Leicester University voiced concern after photographs
emerged showing hand-written signs directing male and female students to sit in separate sections at a public talk on the existence of
God organised by the university's Islamic Society.
proselytizing creeps into public schools. The Loudoun County School Board is reaching the denouement of a multiyear
deliberation about an application for a charter school that has strong ties to Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish Islamist. His
followers have already started some 135 American charter schools. Their focus is to promote an increasingly Shariah-dominated
Turkey. Incredibly, the school board's members are studiously avoiding any acknowledgment or discussion of the role of
Fethullah Gulen and his movement in the charter school.
Texas Lawmakers Blast 'Anti-American',
'Anti-Christian' Curriculum. Texas lawmakers are putting educators on the hot seat after public school curriculum
surfaced that promoted Islam and socialism while deconstructing American values and patriotism. School children were exposed to
lessons that labeled the Boston Tea Party an act of terrorism. They were also instructed to create flags for socialist and communist
countries. And they were also given in-depth lessons in the Islamic faith that included classroom readings from the Koran.
students read Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic. "We do say the Pledge of Allegiance on Mondays at Rocky Mountain High
School," principal Tom Lopez said. Students have always said it in English. This year, a group with about 30 students
approached Lopez with a request to translate and recite the pledge in other languages. "They had to go through me for approval,
and I reviewed it pretty carefully," Lopez said.
as high school recites Pledge in Arabic saying 'One Nation Under Allah'. Fury is brewing at Rocky Mountain High School, in
Colorado, after a multicultural student group were encouraged to recite the Pledge of Allegiance over the loudspeaker in
Arabic — replacing 'one nation under God' with 'one nation under Allah'. Following Monday's pledge, Principal Tom Lopez has been
inundated with complaints from outraged parents concerned that saying the Pledge in any language other than English is unpatriotic.
Pledge in Arabic, One Nation Under Allah?. A Colorado high school principal is defending his decision to allow students from
a cultural club to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic — and denied that it was attempt to push an Islamic agenda.
Tom Lopez, the principal at Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins, told Fox News he has received a number of telephone calls and
emails from outraged parents — but he stands by his decision.
Stealth Islamist Charter
Schools Under Investigation. If one believes that the battle for the nation's soul is occurring, not just in Washington,
D.C., but in schools across the nation, the steady advance of Turkish-Gulen Charter Schools may be cause for alarm.
Charged With Assault: Girl's Hand Cut in Forced 'Islamic Hand Sign' Drill. An elementary school teacher in Chesapeake, Va. has been
charged with simple assault after a parent claimed her daughter's hand was cut open as a result of the teacher yanking her arm aggressively while
trying to teach students an "Islamic hand sign."
Virginia Public School Teacher Charged with Assault
after Forcing Child to Make Islamic Hand Sign. Whatever else happens, let's make sure we don't lose sight of the real problem:
Islamophobia. After all, wouldn't it be racist, intolerant, and bigoted of us not to allow Muslim public school teachers to cut children while
forcing them to make Islamic hand signs?
Islamic Indoctrination in Textbooks. Political
Correctness has a double standard when it comes to teaching about religion in public schools. Drop Christianity down the Memory Hole, but give
extensive and mostly favorable coverage to Islam. Even the mainstream media have provided extensive coverage of the steady stream of court
cases and ACLU threatening letters aimed at removing all signs of Judeo-Christianity from public schools.
U's Muslim Chaplain Removed After Video Exposes Support for Terrorists. In what may be the first time a Muslim
religious figure was removed from a campus position by a university administration, Boston's Northeastern University told Imam
Abdullah Faaruuq that his services as chaplain for Muslim students were "no longer needed." This happened just days after
[Breitbart.com] published an expose documenting that Faaruuq is a supporter of convicted Islamist terrorists who is inciting
Boston Muslims against the U.S government.
Public schools: teaching reading,
writing, and... the Koran? You can't have a moment of silence in public school anymore because someone is offended. People
are pushing to have the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance stopped because it has "God" in it. Christmas trees are removed, Christmas
pageants are renamed "holiday pageants", and every shred of Christianity is being removed, bit by bit, by those who scream "separation of church
and state!" Yet in Minneapolis at Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy (TIZA), a K-8 charter school, children are being taught Islam and the Koran on
the public taxpayers dime, and no one questions it or says a word.
Islamic Propaganda Shown to Six Million American Students. On May 16 and 17 of 2012, Channel One Network, a national
distributor of educational videos and newscasts viewed daily by over 8,000 middle and high schools, aired a two-part video series,
titled "Young and Muslim in America" and "Islam in America." In "Young and Muslim in America: How being a part of Islam changed
ten years ago, Part 1," students watch as Muhtasham Sifaat, 18, kneels on a prayer rug inside an empty classroom.
His voiceover explains how he moved around a lot when he was younger, but Islam has given him stability. What is not revealed
is that Mr. Sifaat is a political activist serving as a chapter president of the Muslim Students Association (MSA), one of the most
radical Muslim Brotherhood front groups in America.
mandatory at NYC public school. An upper Manhattan public elementary school will be the first in the city
to require that students study Arabic, officials said yesterday [5/23/2012]. Beginning next semester, all 200 second- through
fifth-graders at PS 368 in Hamilton Heights will be taught the language twice a week for 45 minutes —
putting it on equal footing with science and music courses.
group honors TN student who portrayed Jesus as fictional. Summit High School sophomore Jeff Shott has
been awarded a $1,000 scholarship for dressing like Jesus Christ on fictional character day.
The Editor says...
How much scholarship money would he get for dressing like Mohammed? There are some who believe he's a fictional
in Textbooks. Political correctness has a double standard when it comes to teaching about religion in public
schools. Drop Christianity down the memory hole but give extensive and mostly favorable coverage to Islam.
Parents won't quit fight over
CAIR indoctrination. Parents in a Florida school district say their fight is not ending over district
officials' decision to openly promote a representative from the local Council on American-Islamic Relations group,
whose national organization has ties to terrorism, to speak to their students and then refuse to listen to parental
rip school for letting controversial Muslim group speak to students. Parents in Tampa are the latest to
protest school officials inviting a controversial Muslim civil liberties advocacy group to speak to students.
Dozens of people showed up at a Hillsborough County school board meeting Tuesday night to complain that a member of
Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, spoke to history students at Steinbrenner High School last fall.
They cited the group's past connection to a terror financing case involving the terrorist group Hamas. The group,
which purports to promote diversity and tolerance of the religion, has met a similar reception in Texas and Georgia in
student quits high school choir over Islamic song praising 'Allah'. A Colorado high school student says
he quit the school choir after an Islamic song containing the lyric "there is no truth except Allah" made it into the
repertoire. James Harper, a senior at Grand Junction High School in Grand Junction, put his objection to singing
"Zikr," a song written by Indian composer A.R. Rahman, in an email to Mesa County School District 51
officials. When the school stood by choir director Marcia Wieland's selection, Harper said, he quit.
Warns Against Singing Islamic Prayer Song. It is ridiculously easy to convert to Islam.
Just say it. Leaving Islam, not so much. For the believers, death is the punishment for apostasy.
Obviously the student who refused to submit to inadvertent conversion was wiser than the rest of the schmucks
who went along with the dangerous teacher/choirmaster. He quit the choir. And then had to leave school
because of the death threats that followed. Of course, the dhimmified school backed the teacher, while
keeping the student front and center in the line of fire. Such ignorance is unforgivable. Abandon the
public schools in droves. Home-school. Or consider fully vetted religious and/or private schools.
American public schools are dangerous in every way imaginable.
on Biased Textbooks Goes to 500 Superintendents. The report lists several quotes from textbooks
teaching students that the 9/11 attacks were a response to U.S. foreign policy. For example, one book
says, "What were the sources of Muslim anger? ...bin Laden declared that the attacks were a response to the
'humiliation and disgrace' that have afflicted the Islamic world for over eighty years." Another teaches
that Bin Laden was motivated by the "military presence of the sacred soil of the Arabian peninsula and its support
for Israel's hostility to Palestinian nationalism." The ideology of radical Islam is not discussed.
Harvard Fires Critic of Jihad.
Harvard has dropped economics courses taught by a Hindu professor, Subramanian Swamy, president of the Janata
Party of India and a former Union Cabinet minister, because of something that had nothing to do with economics:
he wrote an editorial that Muslims find offensive.
It's Called 'Christmas,' Stupid.
The University of California, Berkeley, provides a prayer room in the student union for Muslim students, and the
University of Michigan-Dearborn has installed footbaths for Muslim students, as have a dozen other universities.
A technical school in Minnesota has installed footbaths, but the coffee cart's Christmas music has been turned
off as a violation of the separation of church and state and, perhaps, insulting to those taking a footbath.
Hamas High School in
Florida? Why is a representative of a terror-linked organization, a defender of jihad terror
groups and an apologist for Islamic supremacism welcome to speak in public schools? ... [W]e have been able to
identify one school — Steinbrenner High School — where a representative of CAIR spoke to
students. An informed source tells me it was the notorious Hassan Shibly. Shibly has a track record
of defending jihad terrorist groups and acting as an apologist for the worldwide jihad and Islamic
supremacism. ... Anywhere CAIR speaks, freedom's defenders must be given a platform as well. We are not
an Islamic nation in which truth is blasphemy.
Fighting Radical Islam —
the Educational Threat. The education our children receive about Islam doesn't come only from the
media. In fact, information about Islamic culture is taught in public and private schools across the U.S.
From kindergarten to college, our children may be susceptible to mistruths about Islam, and its relationship to
the western world. There is a dedicated stealth curriculum campaign by factions of the Muslim world to
paint Islam in the most positive light, and that may not be a bad thing. The problem is that references
to Radical Islam are being completely whitewashed.
Curriculum in Georgia. Many of us have been calling out and exposing the destructive propaganda
war that is being waged in our nation's classrooms. Time and time again, we find extensive lessons on
Islam in the public schools, extolling Islamic misogyny and waxing poetic on sharia and the brutal oppression
of non-Muslims and apostates. Last week, we found that schools across Georgia were Islamizing the curriculum
by selling misogyny to children. They were using a lesson plan that glorifies the cloth coffin that
Muslims dress women in, as well as polygamy.
From Crayons to Condoms.
We've all heard stories about teachers and students not being allowed to pray in schools or bring their Bibles
to school. But unfortunately, when it comes to Islam there is a new standard. ... Islam is not always being
taught just as a comparative religion class but actually involves students in Islamic religious rituals.
One teacher reported that while she was substitute teaching she was instructed to leave the classroom for an
hour while another school employee came to the classroom to lead the students in their prayers to Allah.
Certainly the ACLU would file a lawsuit if a public school led children in prayers to God.
School Converted To Islamic Center. As you read this, be mindful that it could just as easily
be your community — and probably will be, eventually. Farmington, Michigan's Public School Board of
Education voted unanimously to sell their vacant Eagle Elementary School to the Islamic Cultural Association
for $1.1 million. The transaction was kept secret until the sale was nearly complete.
Schools Instituting Mandatory Arabic Language and Culture Classes. It seems that it was a
well-kept secret. Residents in the Mansfield Independent School District in Texas found out just this
Monday evening that the district had decided to force some of their children to take Arabic language and
culture classes. As for the impetus behind the move, as they say, just follow the money: The
program is a condition for receipt of a federal grant.
A FLAP Develops Over Mandatory
Arabic Classes in Texas. If one of the main goals of the Department of Education is to
educate parents on why they might want to consider the option of private or home schooling, then mission
Say Textbooks Give Islam a Makeover. Three North County residents contend a textbook
used to teach seventh-graders about the Islamic religion in the San Dieguito Union High School District
"romanticizes" the history of the religion, and they want the district to use supplemental information to
provide what they say would be a more balanced view.
Agenda of our Public Schools. Multiculturalism, certainly, but I am particularly concerned
personally with the Islamic slant of public school textbooks. Of all the arenas in which the stealth jihad is
advancing, the most crucial is in our schools, where stealth jihadists have found a welcoming environment among
teachers deeply steeped in the multiculturalist ethos. With the mandate of "tolerance" robbing many
educators of their ability to evaluate non-Western cultures critically, teachers are highly susceptible to an
organized campaign by U.S.-based Islamic organizations and their primary benefactor, Saudi Arabia, to present a
view of Islam that whitewashes its violent history and intolerant religious imperatives. Meanwhile, in
America's Islamic academies, teaching materials, some direct from Saudi Arabia, instill unequivocal hatred
toward non-Muslims and a deep suspicion of Western culture.
Up for Persecuted Christian Teachers — in America. Two teachers at Dearborn's Fordson
High School, Bryan Purcell and Georgene Stergalas, were repeatedly harassed by the then-Muslim principal Imad
Fadlallah. (He has since been replaced by another Muslim principal.) As we've noted in the press
release announcing the lawsuit, it was clear that the harassment was brought because these teachers are Christians
and not Muslims and because the principal wanted to replace Christian teachers with teachers who are Muslims, Arabs,
or Arab Muslims.
De Facto Shariah Law
in America. In the State of California, 7th-grade students at Excelsior Middle School in
Discovery Bay, California adopted Muslim names, prayed on prayer rugs, and celebrated Ramadan under a
state-mandated curriculum that requires instruction about various religions. In 2006, the U.S. Supreme
Court again declined to hear legal challenges by concerned Excelsior parents, who complained that the instruction
was actually religious indoctrination and that Christianity and Judaism were not given equal time and exposure.
children forced to pray to Allah. Where is the ACLU, which sues schools which dare mention
Jesus or permit football teams to pray before games?
Apologizes After Students Pray to Allah on Field Trip to Mosque. A Massachusetts school district
has apologized to parents after a group of schoolchildren participated in midday Muslim prayers during a field
trip to a Boston-area mosque. The incident occurred in May when a social studies class from Wellesley
Middle School toured the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center, one of the largest mosques in the
School Field Trip Results in Islamic Indoctrination. This a sixth-grade class from a public school
in Wellesley, MA, working with another of these innocuous-sounding "charities" that are really leftwing fronts,
using taxpayer-funded field trip time to take unsuspecting children to a mosque that's notorious for its
connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, for the kids to be indoctrinated. There's no excuse for this.
Everyone on the school's staff who had anything to do with this trip should be fired.
Indoctrination in Public Schools. The fight against Islamic indoctrination in the schools won a
victory in Texas last week. But the forces pushing to obfuscate the nature of Islam's jihad imperative
hold the high ground in the education industry, forcing parents and realists to continue to fight. The
Texas Board of Education issued a press release on Friday, 9/24/10, which included a self-described "most
debated item on the board's Friday agenda" — a non-binding resolution that barely passed by a
7-6 vote, with two members absent.
Perversity: NY Schools Teaching Whitewashed Islamic History. The egregious bias in this
exam, and its structured, requisite evaluation by teachers, is transparent and disturbing. Two examples
of complementary "Official Historical Documents" which students are required to read and discuss —
one pertaining to Islamic Spain, the other Reconquista Christian Spain — along with very specific
teacher evaluation guidelines they must satisfy for the best grade, epitomize the naked indoctrination being
Schoolhouse Shariah. California's
educrats have put out new rules for teaching Islamic studies to seventh-graders in public schools, and they are as biased as
ever. They'll also likely spread eastward. The lesson guidelines adopted by the bellwether state whitewash the
violence and oppression of women codified in Islamic law, or Shariah. And they're loaded with revisionist history
about the faith.
in the K-12 Classrom. A highly disturbing phenomenon is rising in our public school system today
with hardly a peep of protest from parents and from our society at large: students are being force-fed a
curious and bizarre narrative that presents Islam in a glowing — and historically mangled —
light, while Western civilization and the Judeo-Christian tradition are demonized and smeared.

written up and handed a five-day suspension from Springstead High School this week for criticizing a Muslim student.
Heather says the other girl was sitting down during the Pledge of Allegiance.
Left's Romance with Tyranny and Terror. With the decline of communism, the Left began to support
Islamism. Whereas journalists, novelists and activists led the charge in the first wave, Glazov explains
in the second half of the book [Unholy Alliance, the most vociferous defenders of Islamism now come
from the Ivory Tower.
US Public Schools
Teaching Children Pro-Islamic Propaganda. Christianity was started by a young Palestinian named
Jesus and the 9/11 murderers were not Islamic Fundamentalists but simply a generic "teams of terrorists."
That's the caliber of politically corrected [nonsense] many of our children are being taught in American
public schools — and it's past time all parents took serious notice. A five year study by Gary Tobin
and Dennis Ybarra of the Institute for Jewish and Community Research cites hundreds of such errors and
distortions found in "28 of the most widely used social studies and history textbooks in the United States."
Minnesota College Begins Islamization
Makeover. The first public college in the nation has now earnestly begun the Islamization of its
campus. We presume this is only the first of many other colleges and universities that will now follow
suit. Minneapolis Community and Technical College announced in March that it will renovate its bathrooms,
in order to install ritual foot-washing basins for Muslims' who are preparing for their prayers.
Hate Speech At San Francisco State
University. The virulence of anti-Israelism and antisemitism at The University of California, Irvine
campus ... has been so flagrant and endemic in recent years that it actually prompted an investigation by the U.S.
Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights, the findings of which were issued in a damning 2007 report. But
San Francisco State University is not far behind in the ignoble way it has enabled its Muslim students' organizations to
create a veritable reign of terror on campus against Jewish and pro-Israel students, while simultaneously attempting to
silence voices of opposition...
Critic Says Islamic Extremism Gets Whitewashed
in American Textbooks. An education expert is warning that some American textbooks present a
biased view of Islam and offer a sugarcoated picture of Islamic extremism, a trend that has parents worried
about what's being taught in public schools. In numerous history textbooks, "key subjects like jihad,
Islamic law, the status of women are whitewashed," said Gilbert T. Sewall, director of the American
Textbook Council, an independent group that reviews history books and other education materials.
Jihad in the Schools. American educators have been bending to the will of the grievance-mongers
ever since the 9/11 attacks. Remember the jihad-sympathizing admonition included in the NEA's
touchy-feely, post-9/11 curriculum: "Do not suggest that any group is responsible" for the terrorist
attacks, parents and teachers were advised. But feel free to conjure up homeschooling "wackos" and
Christian "New Crusaders" to avoid offending the Muslim lobby.
Week III: "Stop the Jihad on Campus". In October 2007, more than one hundred
campuses hosted Islamo-Fascism Awareness weeks to make university communities aware of the Islamist
threat and the danger it poses. In April 2008 a second Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week focused
on the network created in America by the Muslim Brotherhood and that includes the Muslim Students
Association and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
Textbook Lies About Islam. Why,
at a time of war, are students at top U.S. military schools denied an objective treatment of Islam's war doctrines?
A report by the American Textbook Council sheds light by showing how these academic failures have much deeper roots.
Speech on Radical Islam Has Repercussions at Northwestern. Less than a week after defaming David
Horowitz by claiming that he spreads "blatant lies about Islam" and criticizing the College Republicans for "bringing
such an offensive and divisive speaker" to campus, the Muslim-cultural Students Association (McSA) at Northwestern
has announced plans to bring infamous Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers to campus.
School for scoundrels.
Despite a report by the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom that the Islamic Saudi Academy in
Alexandria, Va., has continued to use textbooks that teach hatred of everyone not of their specific brand of
faith, the U.S. State Department has yet to act to close down the school.
One would be hard-pressed to
find a greater threat to public health, safety and welfare than this training ground for a new generation
Report: Maryland Textbooks on Islamic Teachings Dumbed
Down. According to the New York Examiner, a new report issued by the American Textbook Council said that
administrators who approved books for use in the Montgomery County school district caved into pressure by pro-Islamic groups
seeking to present a less violent interpretation of Islam. Gilbert Sewall, director of the council, stated that, for
example, the definition of jihad has gone through "amazing cultural reorchestration" in textbooks, losing any connotation
of violence, the Examiner wrote.
Muslim University in America. At the University of California, Irvine the Muslim Student Union
(MSU), a virulently anti-Semitic and anti-American student group, holds several programs which unabashedly
support terrorist groups and unjustly denounce Israel, America, and the Western world. MSU events have
featured speakers like Norman Finkelstein, Ward Churchill, Muhammad al-Asi and Amir Abdel Malik Ali, and have
had titles such as "Hamas: the People's Choice" and "Israel: The 4th Reich."
Islamic Textbook Teaches It's OK to Kill. A federal
investigation released Wednesday [6/11/2008] reveals that some Islamic textbooks are teaching kids it's okay to kill
adulterers and converts from Islam. The books have been used by the Islamic Saudi Academy, which teaches 900 students
in grades K-12 at two campuses in Alexandria and Fairfax. The school receives much of its funding from the

to take part in the exercise.
punished for refusing to kneel in class and pray to Allah. Two schoolboys were given detention after refusing
to kneel down and 'pray to Allah' during a religious education lesson. Parents were outraged that the two boys from

Islam in America's
public schools: Education or indoctrination? Islamists, or those who believe that Islam is
a political and religious system that must dominate all others, are focusing less on the military and more on
the ideological. It turns out that Western liberal democracies can be subverted without firing a shot.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the educational realm. Islamists have taken what's come to be known
as the "soft jihad" into America's classrooms and children in K-12 are the first casualties.
Open Tent' Day — Kids Dress Like Arabs. Only in the west can one see a school that hosts a day
when school children are encouraged to dress like, act like, and "learn about" those trying to kill them and
all in a day that the country is in the midst of war. And only in the west would the media help
celebrate such an outrageous example of support for what, in truth, are our enemies.
Principal has new job after 'Islam 101'
controversy. The Friendswood Junior High principal who outraged some parents by allowing an
Islamic group to make a 40-minute presentation to students last month is now off the job. In a
two-sentence statement sent late Wednesday, the school district said Robin Lowe "has accepted another
administrative position effective immediately."
Multiculturalism Gone Berserk:
Why are school children forced to "bow to the altar of multiculturalism" as they did at the Amherst Middle School
when kids had to celebrate something called "Open Tent Day" by parading around the school dressed as Saudi
Arabians, according to pcblogspot.com.?
Muslim presentation at Friendswood school
draws fire. Parents of some junior high students are upset they weren't notified about a school
presentation on Islamic culture, an omission that violated school district policy. The parents'
letter-writing campaign stems from a May 22 presentation at Friendswood Junior High, where two Muslim
women gave a 30-minute presentation about Islamic life as part of a yearlong study of respect, tolerance and
culture, The Galveston County Daily News reported Saturday [5/31/2008].
Wall of silence broken at state's Muslim public
school. Recently, I wrote about Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy (TIZA), a K-8 charter school in Inver

this story. The first deals with the notion of the "double standard"; the second, with "duplicity."

relates to Christianity and its competing world views -- including Islam.
Public University Professor. A history professor at a public Ohio university is an outspoken
supporter of Palestinian terrorism who regularly works on his renowned Jihad web site while drawing a state
paycheck. The Kent State University teacher, Julio Pino, is a Muslim convert who says his Jihadist news

Behind the Censorship of Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week? The three co-equal branches of the Unholy
Alliance — Islamic radicals, far-Left activists, and academics — have returned to their
usual level of discourse — intimidation, slander, ad hominem attacks — in an attempt to
ban Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week from college campuses before it ever occurs.
drop the Holocaust to avoid offending Muslims. Schools are dropping the Holocaust from history lessons
to avoid offending Muslim pupils, a Government backed study has revealed. It found some teachers are reluctant
to cover the atrocity for fear of upsetting students whose beliefs include Holocaust denial. There is also
resistance to tackling the 11th century Crusades — where Christians fought Muslim armies for control
of Jerusalem — because lessons often contradict what is taught in local mosques.
Also in England:
pupils learn to cut off hands of thieves. Up to 5,000 pupils attending weekend schools across
Britain are being exposed to textbooks claiming that some Jews were transformed into pigs and apes, and that
some offences could be punished with stoning. One book for six year-olds warns that those who do not
believe in Islam will be condemned to "hellfire" in death.
Scholastic joins education
industry's campaign for Islam. The Junior Scholastic "news magazine" that is written for
elementary students and used in thousands of public schools across the United States has published an
article promoting "madrassa" school life for American children who are Muslims, much to the outrage of
some parents. "Remember way back in grade school and getting Junior Scholastic magazine in
school? Well here is an example of what JS has devolved into. Force-feeding the barbaric
propaganda of Islamic madrassas down the throats of my 7th and 4th graders. Disgusting," a
father wrote WND about the issue, published in November.
Teacher resigns after placing "destroy
America" in students' word search. Students said former Smithfield-Selma High Spanish teacher
Khalid Chahhou gave them an extra-credit "word search" Thursday [11/16/2006] that required them to
translate vocabulary words and find them in a grid of letters. They started seeing other words
such as "destroy" and "terrorist" and eventually put together a few sentences that decry violence against
Palestinians and appear to condemn the United States for its involvement in the conflict.
universities, little learned from 9/11. The feminists at Harvard seek to remove every vestige of
patriarchy in America, but they have said almost nothing about the complete dismissal of women's rights by
radical Islam. To do so would be to attack Islamic culture, and according to multiculturalism, every
culture is equal and none is evil.
Oregon Students Wear Islam Dress For
Class. Officials at a public school in Oregon are defending a seventh-grade social studies unit
on Islam that included students dressing in traditional Islamic dress. Kendlee Garner of Nyssa told the
Ontario Argus Observer that she objected to the amount of time dedicated to the unit on Islam —
four weeks — as well as the wearing of religious garb and the lack of parental notification. She
said her son told her about the activity, and when she objected, he got an alternate assignment in the library.
Ex-teacher gets 15 years for aiding
terror group. A federal judge yesterday [8/25/2006] sentenced a former third-grade teacher at a
Muslim school in Maryland to 15 years in prison for providing support to a terrorist organization known
as the "Virginia jihad network," which used paintball games to train for a holy war.
Jihadist: Throughout America, universities are turning a blind eye while their campuses are
being invaded by those propagating a violent form of hatred known simply as radical Islam. This month,
one such campus will follow this insidious trend. On March 17th through the 18th, the University
of Central Florida (UCF) will be hosting an imam who has ties to terrorists and has publicly pledged his
support for those who commit suicide in the name of Allah.
Parents Sue After Students "Become Muslims": A public school in Byron, California is being
sued after forcing Christian students to pretend they were Muslims for three weeks. As part of an

Giving Yale the

Taliban official Sayeed Rahmatullah Hashemi to a special student program at Yale, we've received numerous
emails from outraged Yale Alumni. One email stood out from the rest — "I won't give Yale one
red cent this year, but maybe I will give them a red fingernail instead!" She was referring to the
Taliban's policy of pulling the fingernails off of Afghani women who dared to wear fingernail polish.
Some of these women even had their thumbs sliced off as punishment.

weeks after the New York Times revealed that former Taliban official Sayed Rahmatullah Hashemi is attending
classes at Yale, many at the university still have little to say about the controversy. Meredith Startz,
president of the Yale Political Union, told me "there's more discussion of military recruiting among people
at Yale than about the Taliban student." That's partly because Ms. Startz's own organization is
discouraging discussion of the subject.
Taliban: defending the indefensible, part I. Yale is in a dilemma. It made a
huge, indefensible blunder when it admitted the senior advisor to Mullah Omar as a special student,
and now it's taking hits from students, from alumni, and from the media. How can Yale spin
its way out of this one?
Taliban: Defending the indefensible, part II. Uncanny, isn't it? There's a
reason the Taliban sent this fellow abroad to lie for them. He's good. He's smooth. He
plays limousine liberals like fine violins. Even now the Yale administration and most of its faculty
and students — especially those on usually vocal left — are refusing to speak out
against the evil he represented. Their ignorance is willful. Their gullibility is
inexcusable. Their silence is damning.
God and Juan
at Yale? After clearing a significant procedural hurdle earlier this month, University
of Michigan professor Juan Cole, who is better known as a left-wing Israel-bashing blogger, could
soon be offered a full tenured position at Yale.

Jihad Watch. Because the West is
facing a concerted effort by radical Muslims, most of whom are ignored by the Western media,
to destroy the West and bring it forcibly into the Islamic world. That effort goes
under the general rubric of jihad. Jihad Watch is dedicated to bringing public attention
to the role that jihad theology and ideology plays in the modern world, and to correcting
popular misconceptions about the role of jihad and religion in modern-day conflicts. We
hope to alert people of good will to the true nature of the present global conflict that
radical Islam is waging against the rest of us.
