A caller identifying himself as “Josh” from Brookshire, Texas, called in to the American Family Radio program “Focal Point” last week and spread a little taqiyyah about how critics of Islam are cherry-picking verses from the Koran to say that Islam teaches violence against the unbeliever, and that the Muslim Brotherhood are wackadoodles, kinda like the Westboro Baptist Church. Right. And I have bridge-to-nowhere in Alaska to sell you.
The host, Bryan Fisher, points out that there are a lot of verses in the Koran, like Sura 9:5, where Allah commands his follows to kill the idolators where they find them, and he finds no ambiguity there. Bryan further states that while not all Muslims are terrorists, so far moderate Muslims have not given us a way to identify the Muslims we have to worry about, so we can separate them from the ones that we don’t, and until that happens, we have to be cautious about them all.
Is it just me, or do you find it ironic that a professed Muslim has a Jewish name? That’s not going to go down very well down at the local mosque, there Brother Joshua. You might give some though to a name change. How about “Useful Idiot”?

A Texas lawmaker is launching an investigation after a teacher reportedly invited female students to dress up in Islamic garb and then told her classroom they should call Muslim terrorists – freedom fighters.
State Sen. Dan Patrick, chairman of the senate education committee, told Fox News he is very disturbed by the photograph as well as reports that students were exposed to a story that blamed Egypt’s turmoil on democracy – rather than the Muslim Brotherhood.
“Parents are very sensitive to any issue that seems to be anti-American – that blames democracy for some sort of trouble in the world,” he said.
A Texas mom became outraged after she discovered a Facebook photo of her child wearing Islamic garb.
The lesson on Islam was taught in a world geography class at Lumberton High School. The teacher brought burqas and other Islamic clothing for the female students to wear. They were also assigned to write an essay based on a Washington Post story that blamed Egypt’s troubles on democracy – instead of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Imagine browsing Facebook one day and discovered a photograph of your 14-year-old daughter wearing a burqa – at school.
That’s exactly what happened to a parent in Lumberton, Tex. She asked me not to disclose her identity because she fears for her daughter’s safety.
Her daughter’s world geography class was supposed to be learning about the continents. Instead, they were given a tutorial in Islam – complete with authentic Muslim garments. Some of the young ladies were photographed – and the image has now gone viral.
The students were told the purpose of the class was to change their perceptions of Islam. They were instructed to no longer call those who commit terrorist attacks terrorists. Instead, the Muslim terrorists were to be called freedom fighters.
They were also assigned to write an essay based on a Washington Post story that blamed Egypt’s troubles on democracy – instead of the Muslim Brotherhood.
“I am outraged,” the angry mom told me. “I felt my blood pressure go through my head.”
The parent said she was not even aware of the lesson until she discovered the Facebook photograph.
“As parents we should have been made aware this,” she said. “I felt like the line had been crossed.”
The parents said they immediately contacted the principal of the high school who defended the program and said it was required under CSCOPE – a controversial electronic curriculum system that provides online lesson plans for teachers…..
