Australia: Muslim Students Assoc invites honor-killing supporter, university forces cancellation

To save the MSA and Hizb ut Tahrir from having to commit blasphemy and reject Islamic sharia. via Cancelled: proposed speech by Muslim activist Uthman Badar at UWA.

A speech by a controversial Muslim activist planned to be held at UWA [The University of Western Australia] has been cancelled by organisers, who claimed they were misled by an outside party.

The MSA was founded by the Muslim Brotherhood. They invited Hizb ut Tahrir to speak. They weren’t misled, they were caught.

On Tuesday morning, UWA’s Muslim Students Association cancelled the speech by Uthman Badar after Vice-Chancellor Paul Johnson declared the activist had to renounce his alleged view that honour killings were morally justified.

Mr Badar attracted significant media attention earlier this year when he was booked to speak on morally justifying honour killing at Sydney’s Festival of Dangerous Ideas.

Negative feedback forced the seminar to be called off.

Now the Australian spokesman for Hizb Ut-Tahrir - an international Islamic group that advocates sharia law – Mr Badar had been invited to speak at a forum at UWA held by the university’s Muslim Students Association titled “Gaza Crisis”.

Hizb ut Tahrir is terrorist organization.

The university’s Muslim Students Association cancelled the forum, shortly after Mr Johnson said he required a written undertaking that Mr Badar abide by the university’s code of ethics and conduct and renounce his views on honour killings “in all contexts”.

Muslim Students Association executive officer Nazim Khan, an assistant professor at UWA’s Department of Applied Statistics, said the association had been misguided by a party outside the university.

Vice-Chancellor Johnson had earlier labelled Mr Badar’s purported views to be incompatible with UWA principles.

“Mr Badar has been reported to hold the view that so-called honour killings are morally justified,” he said in a statement.

“This view is completely incompatible with the university’s principles.

“[Mr Johnson] requires Mr Badar to give an explicit, written public assurance that he is opposed to the cowardly and barbaric act of so-called honour killings.”

Will Mr. Johnson require the MSA to make the same written statement? Will he dare make all Muslim students make the same pledge against Islamic honor killing?

They MSA has infiltrated nearly every university in the U.S. and Canada to spread their ideology. 

Update: WATCH: Hizb ut-Tahrir Spokesperson Calls for Muslims to Rise Up Against Governments

DOJ forces Dearborn Heights school district to teach in & translate all documents to Arabic

via Mich. district to boost programs for immigrant students. (Notice the innocuous, seemingly deceptive, story title given by stealth Muslim Niraj Warikoo)

A Detroit-area school district with a growing Arab-American population has agreed to improve its programs for students with limited English skills and to potentially hire more educators of Arab descent.

In a 31-page agreement with the Department of Justice, the Crestwood School District in Dearborn Heights says it “shall take appropriate action to overcome language barriers that impede equal and meaningful participation by” students with limited English skills.

The settlement also requires the district to provide school documents in both English and foreign languages such as Arabic and to promote a more diverse staff. The agreement was released in both Arabic and English.

A great victory for the civilizational jihadists.

“This is a great victory for the Arab-American community and its children to become contributing citizens in our country,” said Shereef Akeel, a Troy attorney who filed a federal complaint in 2011 on behalf of Hiam Brinjikji, a counselor in the school district who complained about the district’s neglect of Arab immigrant students.

District officials could not be immediately reached for comment.

Brinjikji, who is of Arab descent, said in the federal complaint that she complained about the lack of attention to Arab-American students who didn’t know English well. She also said the district wasn’t hiring enough Arab-Americans and said she was retaliated against for complaining.

Dept. of Jihad gets involved because one biased person complained?

Last year, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ruled that the Crestwood district had violated federal civil rights laws.

But in Wednesday’s agreement, “the district admits no liability to violations of” a 1974 federal law banning discrimination in education.

The agreement gives detailed, specific instructions to Crestwood on how to improve its programs for those with limited English skills. The district has to ask all parents to fill out a home language survey to identify potential students who don’t know English well.

“The District shall provide ESL (English as a Second Language) instruction to all students who do not receive proficient (test) scores for each of the four language domains of speaking, listening, reading, and writing,” the agreement said.

All teachers must be rated on how effectively they administer one of the programs. And the district has to report on their progress at various points over the next four years.

The agreement also says the district must hire sufficient interpreters and translators so that all letters, notices, and other documents are available in languages needed. The agreement doesn’t specify Arabic, but given that the agreement centered around complaints from Arab-Americans, it will probably include that.

Other requirements of the agreement include increased community outreach, more diversity in hiring, and developing anti-retaliation programs.

In other words, recruiting and hiring Muslims…who will discriminate against non-Muslims.

Michigan taxpayers now fund Arabic…which is always complemented with Islamic propaganda.

Gene Simmons, himself an immigrant, has a message for this ludicrous submission:

Or as philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein once wrote:

The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.

Tennessee School District Sued For Discriminating Against Group Warning of Sharia Law Threat

via Freedom X – Freedom X Sues Tennessee School District For Discriminating Against Group Warning Of Islamic Law Threat. h/t John

 Muslim pressure on U.S. school district results in censorship of after-hours presentation   KNOXVILLE, TN – Freedom X, a non-profit legal organization, filed a federal lawsuit on August 4 in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee against the Knox County School District and two school officials after the district canceled an after-hours presentation at a Knoxville public high school in reaction to demands by Muslim activists.

The lawsuit (Peach vs. Knox County Schools) alleges that school officials cancelled an evening town hall meeting sponsored by a local chapter of ACT! for America (“ACT! Knoxville”) set last April at Farragut High School in Knoxville, TN. ACT! Knoxville planned the event to discuss the increasing acceptance of Islamic law (known as sharia) within the United States and its harmful impact on American freedom. Labeling ACT! Knoxville and its scheduled speakers “bigots,” the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and a local Muslim cleric wrote the school protesting ACT! Knoxville’s use of public school facilities, arguing the event was likely to incite violence and “disrupt the school environment.”

William J. Becker, Jr., Freedom X president and general counsel, stated that Muslim activists resort to fear-mongering as a way of silencing critics of Islamic law. “Muslims in America led by CAIR, which is affiliated with Hamas, a foreign terrorist organization, are exploiting our laws to erode everyone else’s freedom of speech,” Becker said. “It’s part and parcel of a greater plan to eventually make us into an Islamic caliphate.”

Becker said that blasphemy laws are unconstitutional. “Public officials, and that includes public school officials, violate the free speech clause of the First Amendment whenever they censor speech merely because it offends someone. Unfortunately, we are seeing this trend grow as Muslim activists play the victim card.” ACT! Knoxville was forced to move its meeting to a church following the school district’s cancellation. John Peach, its director, said he didn’t seek out another public venue out of concern the group’s request would be rejected. “We are concerned Americans,” Peach said. “Sharia is not well-understood and we wanted to inform the public about it. I don’t think that as an American I should have to be afraid to speak out on public matters in a public forum affecting our culture.”

The ACT! Knoxville event was to have featured Dr. Bill French, who goes by the pen name of Bill Warner, an expert on Islam and the Koran, and Matt Bonner, the Knoxville chapter director of the Crescent Project, a Christian group that evangelizes to Muslims.

The lawsuit was filed to coincide with the start of the new school year. “We have a lesson to teach the teachers,” Becker stated. “The First Amendment protects speech some might not want to hear but school officials are sworn to uphold the Constitution and to allow it. They were tricked into censoring American citizens wanting to exercise the freedom of speech that distinguishes America from Muslim nations.”

Report reveals ‘aggressive Islamist agenda’ in Birmingham (UK) schools

Islamist meaning Muslim and the imposition of sharia in England’s public schools. via Leaked report reveals ‘aggressive Islamist agenda’ in Birmingham schools | UK news | The Guardian.

A damning report into extremist infiltration of Birmingham schools has uncovered evidence of “coordinated, deliberate and sustained action to introduce an intolerant and aggressive Islamist ethos into some schools in the city”.

The conclusion emerges from a leaked draft of a report, commissioned by the former education secretary Michael Gove and written by Peter Clarke, the former head of the Metropolitan police’s counterterrorism command, which is due to be published in the next 24 hours.

Clarke said there was a “sustained and coordinated agenda to impose upon children in a number of Birmingham schools the segregationist attitudes and practices of a hardline and politicised strain of Sunni Islam“.

The draft, marked as sensitive, added that: “Left unchecked, it would confine schoolchildren within an intolerant, inward-looking monoculture that would severely inhibit their participation in the life of modern Britain”.

That summarizes Islam everywhere, not just Britain.

The uncompromising report may deepen community tensions in England’s second city and provoke a fierce debate on whether Britain has been sufficiently muscular in efforts to expose and uproot Islamism. It will also make uncomfortable reading for Birmingham city council as it accuses local politicians and officials of ignoring evidence of extremism for years, repeatedly failing to support bullied headteachers and putting the need to soothe community tensions ahead of all else.

The report represents an explosive parting gift from Gove to the new education secretary Nicky Morgan in only her second full day in post. Touching on one of Gove’s flagship reforms, Clarke calls for the Department for Education “to review the process by which schools are able to convert to academy status and become multi-academy trusts”.

The former police chief said there were potentially serious problems in some academies raised by the Birmingham “Trojan horse” crisis. The draft states: “In theory, academies are accountable to the secretary of state, but in practice the accountability can almost amount to benign neglect where educational and financial performance seems to indicate everything is fine.”

Clarke’s report is backed up by graphic evidence, including social media exchanges between senior staff, and disagrees with the council’s previously expressed view, saying the offending ideology “manifests itself as the imposition of an aggressively separatist and intolerant agenda incompatible with full participation in a plural secular democracy”.

“Rejecting not only the secular and other religions, but also other strains of Islamic belief, it goes beyond the kind of social conservatism practiced in some faith schools which may be consistent with universal human rights and respectful of other communities. It appears to be a deliberate attempt to convert secular state schools into exclusive faith schools in all but name.”

Clarke said that he neither sought nor found evidence of terrorism, but there was “very clear evidence that young people are being encouraged to accept unquestionably a particular hardline strand of Sunni Islam that raises concerns about their vulnerability to radicalisation in the future”.

“Essentially the ideology revealed by this investigation is an intolerant and politicised form of extreme social conservatism that claims to represent and ultimately seeks to control all Muslims. In its separatist assertions and attempts to subvert normal processes it amounts to what is often described as Islamism.”

Clarke’s investigation gained him access to transcripts of discussions on social media between senior figures at Park View Academy, one of the schools at the heart of the row. Heasserts: “The all-male group discussions include explicit homophobia, highly offensive comments about British service personnel, a stated ambition to increase segregation at the school, disparagement of Muslims in sectors other than their own, scepticism about the truth of reports on the murder of [soldier] Lee Rigby and the Boston bombings, and a constant undercurrent of anti-western, anti-America and anti-Israel sentiment.”

Birmingham, in the English Midlands and the country’s second largest city, has a substantial Muslim population due to immigration from Pakistan, Bangladesh and India.

The report, released on Tuesday, cited instances where pupils were banned from singing and listening to music, and forbidden to draw faces in art classes.

It also gave evidence of lessons being segregated by sex and discrimination against non-Muslims. Some schools had cancelled Christmas celebrations.

Texas: Second Muslim, UT student pleads guilty to aiding Islamic terrorists

via Austin news: UT student pleads guilty to aiding terrorist charge | www.statesman.com.

A University of Texas student has pleaded guilty to a charge of providing material support to terrorists.

Rahatul Ashikim Khan, 23, of Round Rock, is facing up to 15 years in prison. No sentencing date has been set.

Investigators say he had been recruiting jihadi fighters through an online chat room. A separate indictment out of a Miami federal court obtained by the American-Statesman complaint seems to shares ties to the complaint against Khan and alleges possible co-conspirators had been funding three groups, designated by the United States as terrorist organizations, that have operated in Iraq, Syria and Somalia.

Khan was one of two men who made international headlines last month after they were charged with the rare federal offense. Michael Todd Wolfe, 23, pleaded guilty Friday, admitting he had planned to join an al-Qaida offshoot gaining force in Syria.

Khan waived a dentention hearing in request of bail this week.

“Rahatul Khan’s admissions during this morning’s guilty plea should serve as a sobering reminder that we need to remain vigilant in our efforts to detect and root out terrorism, even in our own back yard,” U.S. Attorney Robert Pitman said in a statement. “Great credit is due to the dedicated law enforcement professionals whose tireless efforts contributed to the apprehension of Khan and Michael Wolfe, who pled last week in a separate case to similar charges. National security is, and will remain, the first priority of this office and our law enforcement partners.”

Minnesota school district reverses sharia enforcement, allows free speech

Upon further review, Hamas-CAIR rejected again. via Bagley district relents, rents auditorium to anti-Islamic speaker – TwinCities.com. h/t LOOK UNDER THE BURKA OF ISLAM

BAGLEY, Minn. — The First Amendment and what speech falls under its protection is at the forefront of a decision by the Bagley School District to allow the appearance of a controversial speaker this weekend.

Usama K. Dakdok, a Christian speaker, self-described expert on Islam and the founder of the Straight Way of Grace Ministry, will speak this weekend at the Bagley High School Auditorium about Islam.

Dakdok, who was born and raised as a Christian in Egypt before coming to the United States in 1992, claims Islam is a “cult” and a danger to Christians.

“With the wisdom God gave me I know how bad the disease of Islam is,” Dakdok said.

This weekend will be the second time in less than a year Dakdok has visited Bagley. In October 2013, he was invited to speak by community member Tammy Godwin after she attended an event by an imam, a Muslim religious leader. Godwin said she felt the imam was untruthful at the event and wanted to invite Dakdok so he could provide a different perspective.

“I felt that people in the area needed to hear the truth about Islam,” Godwin said.

While Dakdok was originally scheduled to speak at the Bagley School auditorium in October, the location of the speech had to be changed to the Calvary Evangelical Free Church after the school district reversed its decision to let the pastor rent the auditorium.

“We asked to change the venue to the church because the speaker did not appear to coincide with school district policy,” Steve Cairns, superintendent of Bagley Public Schools, told the Bemidji Pioneer shortly after the decision was made.

The district’s decision at that time came after receiving a letter from the Minnesota Council on American-Islamic Relations, which claimed allowing Dakdok to speak at the auditorium would be in violation of the district’s harassment and violence policy and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color or national origin in programs that receive federal assistance.

According to the act, “Simple justice requires that public funds, to which all taxpayers of all races (colors, and national origins) contribute, not be spent in any fashion which encourages, entrenches, subsidizes, or results in racial (color or national origin) discrimination.”

Now, less than a year after the decision, the school district has changed its position to allow Dakdok to speak at the auditorium.

Paula Davis, president of the school board, said the school district is just following its rental policy, but did not want to further comment on the reversal decision citing legal reasons.

“We really can’t talk about it,” she said.

Helen Kennedy, principal of Bagley High School, declined to comment on the subject and Cairns was unable to be reached for comment.

The school’s decision to allow Dakdok to speak at the auditorium may be due to a threat of legal action against the school district.

The Bemidji Pioneer obtained a Nov. 21, 2013, email sent to the Bagley school board from a lawyer named Richard L. Mast Jr. from the Liberty Counsel, a public-interest law firm specializing in church-state and political speech matters. The email told the school board if it did not reverse its decision, then “further steps to prevent irreparable harm” to Dakdok would be taken.

The email also said the assertion that Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 would be violated by having Dakdok speak in a limited public forum at the school auditorium was “laughable.”

In a Dec. 27, 2013, press release from the Liberty Counsel, Matt Staver, founder and chairman of the law firm, said the decision by the school board to take advice from CAIR and reject Dakdok from speaking would be contrary to the First Amendment.

“Contrary to CAIR’s assertions, the District’s suppression of the constitutionally protected speech of Mr. Dakdok at the insistence of a biased Islamic group which disagrees with his message is unconstitutional,” Staver said in the release.

Dakdok said the school knew it would lose the case if it was pursued further.

“The school had no right to stop me,” he said.
