ISLAM IN A PUBLIC SCHOOL

by PAMELA GELLER

…Last December, I picked up my daughter, who is in fourth grade, from school. As soon as she got in the car, she proclaimed, “Allah is great,” and then said it in Arabic. I was so taken back, I am not sure how I drove home in one piece. My daughter told me that in their social studies class, they had begun a new unit on Islam. Their previous unit was the Middle Ages, in which they were learning about castles, kings and queens, and even about the Plague. That unit was completely fine, but when I learned they were learning about Islam and were being told that Allah is great and that Muhammad was his prophet sent to Earth, I got really angry, as did my husband. Actually, I was beyond angry. I was so infuriated, I was shaking.

In Core Knowledge, there is a parent book that provides an overview of what the kids will be learning, per grade and per subject. I looked at the book and read the rather large section on Islam, and was further infuriated. They were literally indoctrinating the kids with a message of how wonderful Islam is, how Allah is great, and how the big, bad Christians murdered thousands of them (without an account of what really happened in history). This video shows the parent book that is supposed to follow along with the curriculum: “Uneven Treatment of Islam and Christianity in Core Knowledge Sequence.”

The next day, my daughter brought home a homework assignment. That night, my husband wrote a note and attached it to the worksheet, and said that our daughter would NOT be filling it out, and she must not receive a bad grade for not doing it. We then wrote a long email to her vice principal and pulled her out of that class until the unit was done. I made it very clear why we were pulling her out of the class and went into detail on how vile and perverted the religion of Islam is, and how disgusting it was that it was being taught in a public school. I further informed them that what they were doing was indoctrinating, rather than giving a full picture on what Islam entails.

Luckily, a few other parents and I were able to pull our kids out, and they studied a different topic during that time – and received an A for the unit. It all happened without any pushback from the school. I know that we were very, very lucky.

A parent at the school started a Facebook group for all the parents so we could chat about school stuff. It is not school-sponsored. When this Islam unit happened, another parent made a post in the group protesting the fact that Islam was being taught. She and I and a few other parents all gave our thoughts on the matter. The interesting part is that the majority of parents who responded to this post made us out to be crazy and ignorant. They were happy that Islam was being taught, because they wanted their kids to be cultured and learn about other ways of life that they normally would not learn about in our super conservative town. When they were informed of how Islam is not the religion of peace that it was being made out to be in the classes, there was silence. No response at all.

I was completely taken aback, not only because the truth of Islam was not even being taught, but because the parents were so incredibly ignorant about the truth of Islam. Had they never heard of any stories about the things you discussed in your recent article? Had they not heard about little Malala? Did they not remember or know anything about 9/11? The Boston bombers? And the list goes on.

This school is filled with kids who come from conservative homes. I would bet that the demographics would show most to be “Christian,” anti-Obama Republicans. The financial demographics of my area and the school would be upper class and highly educated. Certainly not a bunch of tree-hugging liberals.

It seems that a huge HUGE segment of America is truly naïve on what Islam is all about and feel that it should be treated just like any other religion. It is cool and trendy to be tolerant of Islam. This is what our media, our president and our schools are teaching, and Americans are blindly following along!…

    You ask, “What is to interpret?”
    There is a lot to be interpreted, you must included the whole hadith for that to be possible.

    Though if you just want to go off of no pure logical base, fine I will defend myself.

    First understand there are so many different cultures around the world. Muhammad’s culture was among the Bedouins, such marriages between an older man and a young girl were customary among the Bedouins, Muhammad’s marriage would not have been considered improper by his contemporaries. Nor should it be today, there is plenty of logical and reasonable explanation to the marriage of a younger girl and older guy back then.

    Now let us travel back into time among Europe! It was often that marriage between adults and minors who were even younger than Aisha, was common. To be even more clear this practice continued in Europe well into the early modern period.

    • We STOP the pedophila we do NOT celabrate it as you folks do frankly and MAN who thinks this is s good idea is SICK! so how could ANYTHING an iilliterate Perv have to say worth HEARING? why are woman NOT allowed to file for divorce?

  2. @Kohi your behaviour is irrational, and illogical. I would love to continue on why Islam is a religion of peace, and promotes compassion and kindness, but you fail to refute my arguments. You have a logical flaw and when I point it out you do not admit it but brush it off. Debate me honourably not cowardly, so I may show you the truth.

    • True or false mohammy “marryed a 6 year old child? had sex with her at 9 YES!

      ●Bukhari 2:28 “Ingratitude toward her husband (disobedience) can land a woman in Hell. Muhammad explains why women comprise the bulk of Hell’s occupants.”
      ●Bukhari 72:715 “…a woman seeks Muhammad’s help in leaving an abusive marriage, but is ordered by the prophet to return to her husband and submit to his commands.”
      ●Bukhari 2:28 “Ingratitude toward her husband (ie. disobedience) can land a woman in Hell. Muhammad explains why women comprise the bulk of Hell’s occupants.”
      ●Bukhari 4:149 “Muhammad’s wives are even trained to defecate on his command.”
      ●Bukhari 48:826 “Women have a deficiency of intelligence, meaning that their decisions will not be comparable to a man’s.”
      ●Bukhari 58:125 “Women are tradable commodities. A Muslim with two wives offers a fellow Muslim his pick between the two. Muhammad then arranges a wedding banquet.”
      ●Bukhari 62:81 “According to Muhammad, the most important part of a marriage contract is the unrestricted access that a man has to his wife’s vagina.”

      This JUST piglams Misogyny

      Lets go

      • 1 & 2 are common signs of bigotry. The is also something called interpretations, but I think you are too close minded to understand the complexity of them, if not then check out this link: http://www.quran434.com/wife-beating-islam.html

        The whole website is devoted to show the correct interpretation, maybe post the context with the hadith instead of just cherry picking the distasteful things. You also fail to give any paragraph with good organized structure either, you just list off hadith. I am not sure about Islam being misogynistic as the were many notable women during the time of our prophet Muhammad [SAW] who did a lot of important things for Islam.

        Islam stands for social and legal justice. (Qur’an 4:58)
        Islam stands for gender and race equality. (Qur’an 49:13)
        Islam stands for free thought and individualism. (Qur’an 6:80)
        Islam stands for competition in righteousness and morality. (Qur’an 16:90)
        Islam stands for open debate and the providing of evidence. (Qur’an 17:36)
        Islam stands for freedom of religion, and freedom of expression. (Qur’an 10:99)
        Islam stands for honesty, kindness, and deterring from wrongdoing. (Qur’an 3:110)
        Islam stands for change through mutual consultation and representation. (Qur’an 42:38)

        Site your verse or hadith, let me debate you. I will prove Islam to be the most rational, logical, and purest religion on Earth. There is nothing that can stop me from proving that, so until you have evidence for your claims, you will never convince me of Islam being misogynistic.
        BTW, Muslims != Islam.

      • “The is also something called interpretations, but I think you are too close minded to understand the complexity of them”

        What is to interpret ? either he marryed a child or not yes or no? Either he had sex with said child when she was 9 YES OR NO?
        That is a start please defend this.

  3. Not cherry picking your cult hangs gays,cuts the heads of children, on and on….other groups had problems but they have come into the 21 CENTURY not thinking 7th century was all there is! world is flat is it? sprem comes from the backbone? camel urine cures what? islam is a sick cult of HATE for all who are not THEM!

    • You fail to separate your emotionalism, and bias views from the actual Islam. (Which teaches justice, compassionism, and tolerance to others.) Sure believe the media without any actually understanding on how Islam works. Apply forth misinterpreted verse for you are equal to those terrorist that state they are fighting for Allah (swt). You are filled with such bigotry that no educated, or sane man could agree with you. Listen to what you say, and do some honest research. The logical flaws you state would make every single logician want to strangle you. I cannot blame you though, you were brainwashed by the media. Just so you know, Islam was more tolerant to homosexuals than Christianity for a long time. Only recently did Christianity become peaceful in that area. (Do some research, Christians carried out unethical hormonal treatment to “fix” homosexuals.) Muslims NEVER did this, nor did Islam ever promote the murdering of homosexuals. There is a major difference in Muslims and Islam, Muslims are flawed, while Islam is perfect. Take your lies and illogical statements elsewhere.

      • I love how you seperate muzzies from islam how does that work if you follow the cult you are a MUZZIE! Brainwashed? please I read your qweeran, and the hadiths, you LIE to further islams reach and you will get so mad it will come down to threats how I am an ignornat american etc etc I SEE EXACTLY what ISLAM is and I spit on the pedo,murderer that was MOHAMMAD!

  4. you are a very silly boy kami………go to facebook…then search for world defence league or Australian defence league……there are defence leagues for every civilised country trying to get all muslims from our countries….these sites show exactly what muslims do…….go and have a look lol……islam is an evil cult attempting to take over every culture in the world

    • You place forth the logical flaw of ‘argumentum ad populum’.

      Just because there are many bigotry organizations against Islam, does not mean Islam is evil. (As put forth by ‘argumentum ad populum’). There are many children from these organizations that go off and get educated and understand that Islam is peaceful. Only the uneducated, the ignorant, the blight, say that Islam is a religion of terror. Please I beg of you to educate yourself about Islam in a non-biased notation, stop believing in the lies of the media.

      • look around the world, look at those facebook pages I gave you……islam never is peaceful, it just attacks, it is nasty and evil……you live in bitterness cobber if you want….what does quran say about infidels…..why do muslims change cultures in non islam countries
        We know that muslims lie continually to infidels to advance the cause and spread of islam to all corners of the world…..but the world is slowly waking up…….islam is no more than a massive gang of thugs that worship satan…….islam is more dangerous and violent than all bikie gangs combined

  5. Makes me sick.

  6. Reblogged this on GOD, GUTS,OLD GLORYand AMMO and commented:
    This no longer creeping sharia it is open door sharia

  7. Get rid of the teachers and principal of your school

    Fast..,

  8. There is a thing called bigotry, you are the very root of it. You fear to let your child grow up using logical and rational evidence. She should not be hidden from Islam, but rather educated about it, from a non-biased view.

    The events you list are not carried out by the Muslim majority, but rather by the irrational, exploiters of religion. There are just as many terrorist attacks from Muslim, just as from Jews, Christians, and Atheists. To focus on the nut-jobs of Islam, the ones who do not represent the majority is such a close-minded view.

    Those who censorship knowledge, do not deserve a parental status, knowledge is power. You are limiting your child’s growth.

    What Islam is really about, is just what Christianity is really about, worshipping God. Nothing more, and nothing less. I do not know where you mange to gather such insolent views, but let me tell you they are wrong, you should fact check your sources before you use them.

    • LOL really? and sharia for all is just what exactly? How many jew,hindi,buddiest,amish suicide bombers have you seen?

      • Right, I can apply ‘reductio ad absurdum’ too. Though being a more logical and truthful person than you I will not, rather I will answer you an a clear fashion.

        My argument wasn’t only toward suicide bombers, but rather just toward general violence. So please, stop cherry picking.

        There have been many massacres by other religions, not against other religions, but just for the different sects.
        One example is St. Bartholomew’s Day massacre.

        Also how about the time when Israel came and invaded peaceful Palestine? Some historians estimate the death count to be around 5 million people, note some of these people were even of the Judaism religion! The state of Israel was raised not for Judaism but because Judaism was exploited for political greed. (BTW, The majority of people living in Palestine were Muslim.) Also note that the deaths were not just around men, but women and children were brutally murdered too.

        Like I said, there are many heartless people that exploit religion. Do not blame the religion, blame the human that was heartless to use God’s name to control people.
