Wahhabism and American Public Schools

Here are some links about the Wahhabi influence in our public school system:

Look who's teaching Johnny about Islam

The truth about the textbooks

Our own gullibility

Lots of reading for you there. I found all of it (and much more that I didn't link to) by searching for 'Susan Douglass' on Google.

A HUMONGOUS thanks to Always On Watch. With you pulling watch duty I believe that we have a fighting chance!

undergroundlogician.blogspot.com opened my eyes to this danger several months ago.
Like a lot of Americans after 9-11, I didn't want American Muslims to pay the price for the terrorists.
I have since discovered that a "good Muslim"(peaceful), is a bad Muslim in the eyes of their faith. The goal of Islam is to erradicate EVERY other religion on the planet.
How do we fight this in America, a country founded on tolerance of other's beliefs?
People act like I'm a nutcase when I tell them about this. I'm sure you've had this happen too.
I KNOW you're not a nutcase; this shit is happening, right under our noses! All we can do is keep spreading the word, and hope that our fellow citizens catch on before it's too late!

Monica,
As a professional educator, I'm really hot to expose the infiltration of the schools and--worse--the textbooks.

Thanks for citing "Our Own Gullibility," which I cowrote with Mustang of Social Sense. That article was one of my early experiences with blogging. I've kept going ever since and owe Mustang a debt for bringing me into the blogosphere at full-tilt.

If you're interested in some daily updates on the dangers of Islam, visit this site. And the uncomfortable truth about Islam is given at The Truth Project, which also gives some tips for activists like myself.

Do we have a chance? I don't know, but I won't go down without a fight. I owe the attempt to future generations! Ingrained in me is the concept that teachers touch the future. Of course, you are homeschooling, so that makes you a double toucher of the future--as parent and as teacher.

PS: If the above links don't work, let me know.

Monica,

Three cheers! We need more parents and teachers who recognize the danger!

Our children's minds are one of the most important targets of Islam, and where but in our schools, where an entire generation of future politicians, teachers, lawyers, judges, journalists, academicians, etc., can they find greater opportunities to carry out their goal of establishing a world-wide caliphate?

So many generations of school children have been "softened up" because of our tax-supported, compulsory school system, where curriculum is compelled. It began in the mid-1800s (a short history of the softening up process can be seen at http://www.6thcolumnagainstjihad.com/CUBED_P3htm.

The only chance our country has is homeschoolers like you.


tshsmom,

You certainly have come a long way since 9/11! I think your experience parallels that of many of us--prior to 9/11, who knew? Now that more and more of us "know," I am encouraged.

You are definitely not alone in being considered a "nutcase" when you describe Islam to others; just this morning, after posting an article about the extraordinarily cruelty of animal sacrifice during Eid in Malaysia to a group that supports free spay/neuters of pets and strays, I was accused of being an anti-Muslim bigot. My critic is correct, of course; when it comes to gratuitous cruelty, I am definitely bigotted, just as described in the dictionary. And using the same definition, I am bigotted against Islam!

AOW,

I have to agree with Monica when she says "With you pulling watch duty I believe that we have a fighting chance!" I don't know what the rest of us would do without the likes of you!

tshsmom - I know. 9/11 was like a sucker punch. I had no idea this thing called Islam except for some fuzzy notions about robes and the hajj. We've gotten a hell of an education though haven't we? It's getting scarier by the day. The scariest part for me, by far, are the people and the governments who refuse to wake up to the gathering danger. I'd like to believe in a 'moderate muslim' but I don't see them anywhere. When my good neighbor leftist starts bitching about the price of gas, and oil company profits, I tell him - SORRY! I've got bigger fish to fry right now. Like the fact that crazy islamist bastards the world over are trying to wipe out Western Civilization! He looks at me like I'm nuts. LOL! Even aside from the islamists I have more to worry about than oil profits. Education in America for one.

AOW - I am eternally grateful to you for coming here and giving me this information. We DO have a fighting chance - we are Americans. What the MSM and the leftist intelligentsia are saying isn't washing anymore with a vast number of American people. In the end it will be the American people that anyone, or any government, will have to deal with. Thanks for the links - they work and I love them! I got your back, sister - and you got mine. There are a lot of us out here.

Cubed - thank YOU too! Appreciate the comment and link. Until I had kids, education in America was not on the front burner for me. I knew that my sisters all fought like hellians with the public schools they were dealing with and the school's ineptitude with their kids. (every last single one of them! There are lots because I come from a big family!) I had heard that American kids were not faring so well when compared internationally. I knew a couple of women with teenagers who couldn't read - and those mothers being turned away from the school every year with a 'don't worry - we know what we're doing' when daring to push the issue. Believe it or not - homeschooling was one of the last options we considered! I believed the lie that parents ought not, or were incapable of, educating their own children. I guess I believed the lie that I (as a parent) was a major part of any problems that might crop up. It's a shame that MOST parents believe those lies, too - just like I did. I have said many times in the last couple of years that I believe homeschoolers will save the Republic! It sounds whacky, doesn't it?! But I think it's true...

God Bless America! God Save the Republic!

Monica, how did I KNOW that you've gotten the nutcase reaction too? ;)
I have recently lost my fear of being labeled as a nutcase. I tell everyone I know of this danger. Several have gone on to research it on their own, and have come back to apologize to me for thinking I was whacko. Even if only a few of our acquaintances believe us, they will be out there spreading the word too. It all helps.

I believed the lies the school told me too. I finally woke up when I realized that our very bright 7th grader had just failed ALL his 1st semester classes. All I got from the school was the "don't worry, we know what we're doing" spiel. That's why we're now homeschooling!

Cubed, that's what bugs me the most, being labeled a bigot and racist. I'm with you; I'll stick with the dictionary definition. ;) If I'm labeled a racist for fighting to protect my way of life; so be it.

GM,

Lots of reading, as you said.

Here's another source that says Religious preaching makes these books unfit for use in public schools. Susan Douglass is mentioned along with Shabbir Mansuri and the Council on Islamic Education. It's a little more even-handed than your sources, but I hope you enjoy it.

We are in agreement, I believe, that preaching has no place in the public schools.

It isn't only Washington state that's screwed up - although I know that Washington state seems to be moonbat heaven!

But I thought you guys loved religion in public schools? Oh, you only want your religion in public shools. Well, now you know how we feel.

Don't worry, your children are homeschooled; they will become Christian Jihadists.
