California Public School Holds Hijab Day, Hilarity Ensues

By Robert Spencer

Thursday was Hijab Day at NP3 High School (Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep), a public charter school in Sacramento, California. Predictably, the school responded to concerns over why a public school would be hosting such an event with charges that critics were motivated by “hatred” and “bigotry.” The whole episode became an illustration of how Islamic supremacists are manipulating politically correct, multiculturalist pieties to advance their agenda.

It all started when a Jihad Watch reader in the Sacramento area who is very close to NP3 High School sent me the flier for the day, which read:

NP3 Hijab Day
January 28, 2015

  • The hijab is a headcovering worn by Muslim women as a symbol of modesty and their devotion to God.
  • GIRLS! Come to the library Wednesday morning and MSA members will assist you in putting your hijab on.
  • You can bring any type of rectangular (or square) that is bought at any store*

*If you do not have any scarves, they will provided for you to borrow for the day

The person who sent me the flier explained that this all started with a student at NP3 High who is an intern for the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), now designated a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates. This student, I was informed, gave a presentation about “Islamophobia” and Islam at what was a mandatory staff meeting that also included an official CAIR representative. The school then decided to sponsor an official “Hijab Day” in cooperation with CAIR. The flier also showed that another Muslim Brotherhood-linked organization, the Muslim Students Association, was also involved.

My source also told me that every female member of the faculty and staff, and students as well, was encouraged to wear a hijab Thursday, and that NP3’s principal, Tom Rutten, strongly encouraged everyone to participate and wear one…

 

….For your convenience, here are the major concerns that people have about the NP3 Hijab Day event:

1. FBI statistics show that hate crimes against Muslims, which are never justified, are actually quite uncommon, with hate crimes against Jews being over four times more common. Details here: http://www.islamist-watch.org/blog/2014/12/new-fbi-hate-crime-stats-another-blow-to-islamist

Yet I would venture to guess that there has been no event at NP3 High to call attention to the challenges that Jews face, and that none is in the works. I understand that NP3 Hijab Day was a student-run event. Would a Jewish or pro-Israel student be allowed to stage a similar Day calling attention to anti-Semitism? If this included the rise in Islamic anti-Semitism in Europe and elsewhere, would this be allowed? Would you allow a Yarmulke Day at NP3 High?

2. CAIR and the MSA appear to have been involved in this event. Both were named unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land trial, which involved funneling money to the terror group Hamas. Both have demonstrable ties, documented and noted by the FBI, with Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. See, for example, these links:

http://www.investigativeproject.org/2340/federal-judge-agrees-cair-tied-to-hamas

http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2011/March/Muslim-Student-Group-a-Gateway-to-Jihad/

Is it really wise to allow people from organizations that have ties to terror groups to interact with NP3 students?

3. As I am sure you’re aware, even student-run events by Christian students have come under fire in public schools in recent years, and many see them as a violation of the Establishment Clause. Would you allow a Wear the Cross Day? I have never heard of such an event in any public school except in conjunction with protests against it on Constitutional grounds. Do you not think this is a double standard — and one perpetuated by Hijab Day at NP3 High?

4. Many women and girls around the world have been brutalized and even killed for not wearing a hijab. A list of some of them, with further links to the relevant news stories, is at this link: http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/02/today-is-world-hijab-day

Are you not concerned that NP3’s Hijab Day might end up justifying and helping perpetuate the pretexts for this oppression? What steps did you take to ensure that that did not happen? If a student wanted to hold a Day calling attention to the oppression of women that is all too often justified by Islamic law, would that be allowed at NP3?

I hope these questions make it clear that there are legitimate concerns regarding NP3’s Hijab Day, and to dismiss them as “hate-filled” is simply an attempt to shut down the public discussion that is needed on these issues. I look forward to receiving your answers to these questions. Also, I would be happy to come to NP3 High School at my own expense, in order to engage in an open forum with students on these and related issues, and to ensure that the “open and frank discussion” on these issues at NP3 High is not dominated solely by one perspective only. We can settle on a mutually agreeable date for this open forum at your convenience — I can be reached at this email address and at [redacted].

Cordially
Robert Spencer

Needless to say, I received no response. The exchange was yet another example of how one side of the debate about sharia and jihad is trying to have a rational discussion, while the other responds only with slogans and smears. The response from Rutten and the student was drearily predictable with its cries of “hate” and lack of specific response to any of the concerns raised in the letter to Rutten.

And so Hijab Day came and went at NP3 High, with all questions about it dismissed as “bigotry.” We may only hope that none of the girls who voluntarily donned a hijab on Thursday to show their multicultural sensitivity, or their daughters, will ever be forced to wear one at the point of a gun. But such concerns are not allowed to be voiced at NP3 High School.

2014: Top Highlights in the Fight Against Islamic Extremism

by Ryan Mauro

The year 2014 will be remembered for the war against the Islamic State, the interim nuclear deal with Iran, Hamas’ brutal kidnapping and murder of Israeli teens and other harrowing developments.

However, the year also saw fight against Islamic extremism. Here are the top 19 moments in 2014 where Islamic extremism was bruised:

Islam Is Neither a Religion Nor Peaceful

It’s misleading to call Islam a religion. While Islam, literally translated, means “submission” [to Allah—or death], it’s very much a political ideology.

The Qur’an, Hadith, and the Sunnah all clearly articulate Islam’s goal to implement worldwide totalitarian rule through implementing Shari’a Law.

This is why President Obama’s White House Homeland Security advisor Mohamed Elibiary (a Muslim Brotherhood member) asserts, “America is an Islamic country” with an “Islamic Compliant Constitution.” He views America within what will soon be a Muslim majority world.

This is why Obama’s close friend, Omar Ahmed, Chairman of the Board of CAIR (Council on America-Islamic Relations), says, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Qur’an should be the highest authority in America.”

The political ideology of Islam is why many Islamists work in the Obama Administration. Two notables are Mohamed Magid, a member of the Department of Homeland Security Advisory Board (Magid is president of the Islamic Society of North America [ISNA, founded by the Muslim Brotherhood]), and Louay Safi, the Pentagon’s Muslim military chaplain (and ISNA’s Director of Leadership Development).

This is also why the Muslim Brotherhood recently announced it is creating a political party to engage Muslims in U.S. politics and has attempted to add Shari’a Law to each U.S. state constitution.

Muhammad explicitly states that no Muslim can alter or ignore any part of his clear and direct commands in the Qur’an, throughout which he refers interchangeably to Islam and Shari’a Law. They are one in the same. Islam’s totalitarian political ideology specifies a mandatory legal system to oversee all areas of society.

Islam orders “religious worship,” financial transactions and contracts, morality, philosophical and other beliefs, and criminal and civil law. Islamic Shari’a Councils exist throughout European societies to institutionalize and regulate honor killings, child marriage and domestic violence. Child marriage is more than accepted because Muhammad, when in his fifties, added to his many wives by marrying six-year old Aisha, with whom he consummated his marriage to her when she was nine years old. (Sahih al-Bukhari Vol. 7, Book 62, Number 64, 65, 88; Volume 5, Book 58, Number 236)

Islamic law rejects every aspect of western law. Drinkers, gamblers, and unmarried sexual partners must be whipped; all gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people are to be executed. Free speech, freedom of the press, freedom to worship or not worship, do not exist in Islam.

As Belgian leader Abu Imran explains, “democracy is the opposite of Islam. A Muslim who supports democracy is equivalent to a Jewish Muslim. It’s impossible to be both Jewish and Muslim and impossible to be a Muslim against Shari’a.” It is a Muslim’s duty to transform all governments to Shari’a Law.

The Qur’an, written over the course of Muhammad’s lifetime, instructs violence. The passages written later in his life are understood to supersede the earlier written passages. Because the “peaceful” or “tolerant” passages were written first and the violent and “intolerant” passages were written later, the latter are prioritized.

Muhammad commands in the Qur’an 9:29:

Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger [Muhammad] have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth [Islam], out of those who have been give the Book [the Bible, given to Christian and Jews], until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of [Muslim] superiority and they [Christians and Jews] are in a state of subjection [dhimmitude, i.e. third-class legal status for non-Muslims].

Like ISIS, Muhammad was barbarically violent. The earliest, most comprehensive, and widely respected biography about Muhammad, written by Ibn Ishaq, Sira of Ibn Ishaq, reveals that Muhammad and his followers were brutally and mercilessly violent.

Ishaq describes one of Muhammad’s first acts, ordering the torture and beheading of a man Kinana b. al-Rabi’ to take his gold. After he stole al-Rabi’s wealth, he killed him, and took his new widow Safiya to consummate his marriage to her (English transl. p. 511-517).

The Hadith tells of Muhammad’s soldiers who raped “some excellent Arab women” because they “were suffering from the absence of [their] wives.” Muhammad told them it didn’t matter if they practiced ‘azl because “every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born” (Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3371).
Ishaq writes that Muhammad warned, “if you do not follow him [Allah] you will be slaughtered, and when you are raised from the dead you will be burned in the fire of hell” (English transl. p. 222). (Sunan Abu-Dawud Book 38, Number 4348; Sahih al-Bukhari Volume 9, Book 84, Number 57).

This is why those who reject or leave Islam are “liable to be killed,” beaten, stomped on, stabbed, burned, imprisoned, and killed.

In fact, the majority of Muslims surveyed in a 2010 Pew Research poll support the death penalty in their country for those who leave Islam. The Qur’an orders death for anyone who criticizes Muhammad, Allah, and the Qur’an.

Following the Qur’an led to the beheading an Oklahoma woman because she rejected Islam. Both a Harvard Chaplain who supports death to non-Muslims and the Ground Zero Imam who openly claims those who leave Islam should be imprisoned, follow the Qur’an.

Following the Qur’an has resulted in Muslims killing more than 3,000 Americans on American soil in more than 75 terrorist attacks over the last 40 years. Not to mention the hundreds of millions of women, children and blacks enslaved in 57 Islamic countries.

Muslims who claim Islam is peaceful are following taqqiya, Qur’an-instructed deceit, or are not Muslims at all. As Abu Ad-Darda, Muhammad’s companion explained, “we can smile in the face of some people although our hearts curse them.” And the Qur’an 3:185 states, “The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception.”

Any reference to peace in Islam only means the world will be at peace when every country is Shari’a ruled. Obama supports this goal in both word and deed. He has said and written, “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” and “I will stand with the Muslims if the Political Wind shifts in an ugly direction.”

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD OVERRUNS NATIONAL CATHEDRAL IN DC

by DR. SEBASTIAN GORKA

….There is nothing inherently wrong about interfaith initiatives as long as they start from the same place: a mutual respect for the belief system of the other, and their inherent dignity as humans created by God. When one party acts in bad faith based upon its ideological commitment to see other faiths destroyed or subjected, then the event runs the risk of becoming a propaganda coup for the extremists and their followers.
The fact that this event is occurring just as ancient Christian communities are being destroyed in the Middle East and “non-believers” are being actually crucified by ISIS jihadists makes it all the more egregious.
We know that the Episcopal church is in trouble with more conservative believers leaving in great numbers and the remaining adherents not exactly outdoing their Catholic cousins in terms of reproducing the next generation of believers. But I doubt they also understand the finer points of jihadist doctrine, one of which is that if a place of worship is used by Muslims for their prayers, that territory subsequently becomes part of Dar al Islam, sacred muslim land. Forever.

CAIR, 20 Years of Terror

by Joe Kaufman

cairOn the night of Saturday, November 8, the San Francisco Bay Area chapter of CAIR held its 20th Anniversary Banquet at the Santa Clara Convention Center. It was fitting that two out of three of the event’s featured speakers have been associated with terrorism, as 20 years ago CAIR was founded as a main component of a Palestinian terrorist enterprise inside the United States.

CAIR or the Council on American-Islamic Relations has been in existence for 20 years — since June 1994 — when it opened up its national headquarters in Washington, D.C. The group was established as being a part of the American Palestine Committee, an umbrella organization run by then-global Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook, who was based in the U.S. at the time and who now operates out of Egypt as a spokesman for Hamas.

The other members of the umbrella included a Hamas financing wing, Holy Land Foundation (HLF); a Hamas propaganda wing, Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP); and a Hamas command center, United Association for Studies and Research (UASR), which was then led by Ahmed Yousef, who later left the U.S. for Gaza to become Senior Political Adviser to Hamas leader Ismail Haniya.

The founding and current National Executive Director of CAIR is Nihad Awad. Just prior to co-founding CAIR, Awad held the position of Public Relations Director for the IAP. As the propaganda wing of Hamas, the IAP had been involved in distributing Hamas terrorist videos and publishing vehemently anti-Jewish and anti-Israel materials, including the Hamas charter in different languages.

Only months before the creation of CAIR, Awad announced his support for Hamas….

…Also speaking at the banquet was Nihad Awad’s San Francisco counterpart, Executive Director of CAIR-SFBA Zahra Billoo. Billoo has made a number of extremist statements in the past. She has written that “one amazing reason to get married” is to “raise fighters” (children) to attack the nation of Israel. She wrote that to celebrate Columbus Day is “the same as having Jews celebrate Hitler and the Holocaust.” She refers to U.S. troops as “scum.”

Billoo proudly announced on her blog that her younger brother, Ahmed, was quoted in an article in the Los Angeles Jewish Journal — an article that discusses in length about how her brother supports suicide bombings. Billoo wrote that she, herself, had thoughts of committing suicide, after she viewed a pro-Israel advertisement on a San Francisco train.

On her Twitter account, Billoo boasted that her CAIR event was sold out, and the pictures taken at it do show a full house. This is a frightening indication that many Muslims in America appear to support and approve of CAIR’s agenda. Certainly given the amount of information available about the speakers at the event, one would be hard pressed to believe that the attendees weren’t at least somewhat aware of CAIR’s terror-related background….

CAIR Demands Head of Houston Firefighter Over Facebook Post

by Daniel Greenfield

I wouldn’t even call this a post. He seemed to have set, probably, someone else’s image as his profile picture on Facebook. But CAIR is out hunting for heads and politically correct politicians are only too happy to comply.

HOUSTON (KTRK) — An HFD employee is under investigation and on administrative duty because of something he posted on his personal Facebook page.

The post is set to a backdrop of an American flag and reads, “Proud Infidel. F*** Islam and F*** Muslims.” It was posted to his timeline earlier this month, and at one point, it was even his profile picture.

When we brought it to the attention of the Houston Fire Department, Chief Terry Garrison responded with a statement, “As soon as I was made aware of the situation, I adopted a complaint on the matter, launching an internal investigation.”

“Your rights of freedom of speech and freedom of expression stop when you work for somebody, to the extent that there’s policies in place,” said KTRK Legal Analyst, Joel Androphy.

If we took Joel at his word, then freedom of speech would not exist for anyone except freelancers. His way of putting is certainly unnecessarily creepy. Employers can indeed fire employees for any number of reasons, depending on local laws, etc… However government agencies firing employees for their private views opens up a whole other can of worms as Christie found out when a NJ state employee who tore up a Koran in New York was temporarily fired over it….
