Middle East Pours Billions Into American Education: Threatens National Security
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. May 30, 2019
The stated goal of Muslims is to convert America to an Islamic nation living under Sharia law that trashes the Constitution and our freedom. In this video clip, Islamic activist Sharifa Alkhateeb states,
“We do not want to melt into American society and disappear. We want to go into American society with Islamic ideals and revamp their thinking. We want to revamp them. We want to turn them into Muslim individuals.”
Education long has been a key vehicle for achieving that goal. Since the mid-1970s there has been an ongoing infusion of billions of Arab petro-dollars into the infrastructure of American education to change public opinion toward Islam and to influence U.S. policy toward Israel. Beginning with colleges in the mid-1970s and then K-12 in the 1990s, textbooks have been revised to promote Islam through false information, deliberate omission of critical information and planting seeds of bias toward Christians and Jews.
Students are not told the facts about the Islamic barbarism -- beheadings, slaughter of Christians and Jews, crucifixions, enslavement, stonings, hangings, throwing gays over balconies to their death, honor killings, female genital mutilation, dismembering body parts, disemboweling, rape, terror, kidnapping, destroying synagogues and churches, detonating bombs strapped to babies’ heads, and locking people in cages for days and then drowning them. Totally ignored is the plight of women living under Sharia.
The door was opened for Islam to enter K-12 in 1995 when President Bill Clinton directed the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) to provide a statement that public schools could not provide religious instruction but could teach about religion. Furthermore, students would not be excused from lessons that “may be inconsistent with their religious beliefs or practices.”
Under the guise of teaching history or social studies, American public schools are promoting Islam in ways that are not tolerated for Christianity or any other religion.
In 2005 under President George W. Bush, Access Islam was created to teach students about the traditions, culture, and holidays of Islam.
Under President Obama the curriculum was expand to include 10 lessons on “Five Pillars of Islam;” “Salat: Prayer in Muslim Life;” “Ramadan Observance;” “Quran: Sacred Scripture of Islam;” “The Haji: Journey to Mecca;” “Islam in America;” and “Women in Islam. Funded by the U.S. Department of Education, the lessons for grades five through twelve are available on various websites including PBS Learning Media.
Access Islam is a full-blown indoctrination program for the barbaric system of Islam – funded by the American taxpayers. (Contrary to some fake news reports, the U.S. Supreme Court did not rule about the teaching of Islam in public schools.)
The USDE does not provide similar lessons for Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism or any other major world religion. Only Islam.
During the 2014-2015 school year, a Christian teenage girl in Maryland was forced to write the Islamic conversion creed (the Shahada), "There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah." She was also taught that "Most Muslims' faith is stronger than the average Christian." The lawsuit also claimed the students were “instructed that the Islamic religion is a fact while Christianity and Judaism are just beliefs.”
The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), on behalf on the parents, have sued the school district, school board, and principal and vice principal. Upon the ruling of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals for the school, TMLC has appealed the case to the Supreme Court.
American schools are being forced to cave to Sharia demands by Muslim students.
High schools in the state of New York were pressured by Muslim students to give preferential treatment for their observance of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Accommodations included prayer rooms, special diets, and time away from school.
Because the senior prom at Brooklyn Tech was being held during Ramadan, Muslim students demanded the date be changed even though it had been set several months prior. School officials refused, but did agree to delay serving food until after the day’s fast ended at 9 p.m.
In 2017, the story broke in Texas news that, for the past seven years at Liberty High School in Frisco, Muslim students had been given preferential treatment with the transformation of a classroom into a campus mosque for 30 minutes each weekday.
If Progressives get their way, Michigan’s fact based K-12 social studies curriculum standards that focus on the “core values” in our nation’s founding documents and accurately describe our form of government as a “Constitutional Republic” will be dramatically and irrevocably altered.
A task force dominated by Progressives is proposing standards that politicize America’s history and founding principles and promote the “democratic values” of the Democratic Party. Replacing the phrase from the Declaration of Independence that states “all men are created equal,” the Progressive version promotes equality (i.e. equal income/equal property ownership). How our Constitutional Republic form of government works is obscured with false assertions that America is a “democracy” and a “representative democracy.” Lessons on Christianity are removed while those about Islam remains.
Even beyond the classroom, children are being indoctrinated in jihadism. Recently in Philadelphia, the Muslim American Society Islamic Center uploaded videos to its Facebook page. The videos show children lip-syncing to songs that they will chop off heads for Allah.
The U.S. Department of Education must end all Middle East money being funneled into public education as a matter of national security.
