Tennessee: School enforces sharia, bans town hall on…sharia law

via FBI-banned, DOJ classified unindicted terror funding co-conspirator, fed judge confirmed Hamas front group CAIR Welcomes Cancellation of Anti-Muslim Event in Tenn. School

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today said it has joined with concerned Muslims in Tennessee in welcoming cancellation of an anti-Muslim event scheduled for April 24 at a Knoxville high school.

Another American inflicted with Adult Onset Islam via Approval rescinded for Shari’a Law event at Farragut High School.

“Feel free hosting it anywhere else by renting out a banquet hall, but to host it at a public place is one that is not comfortable for the rest of us to know about,” said [AbdelRahman] Murphy.

6 News reached out to the Knoxville chapter of ACT! for America. They say it is about education.

“He is going to be coming to share with us his expertise on what Shari’a law can be doing to Tennessee and to America as a whole,” said John Peach with ACT! For America.

They also say the venue simply should not matter.

“We feel like it’s very important that we have our public institutions take part in this because it’s not meant to be a religious thing. It’s not a political thing. It’s particularly for education purposes,” said Peach.

There is no word yet if ACT! for America plans to hold the event in a new venue.

John Peach issued this statement late Friday afternoon:

“Why is it that Muslims engage in teaching about how good Islam is for Tennessee at the Cedar Bluff Library – a public building, but they feel “uncomfortable” when ACT! for America plans an event to show the opposite viewpoint at a public building? (This is documented as follows):

Muslims like the support the University of Tennessee gives them to host activities and venues on their campus. Furthermore, it likes its Muslim Student Association (MSA) to hold events at their tax supported public UT campus.

“Why is it that all Tennessee social study textbooks to be authorized for use in our public schools must be approved by Muslim affiliates? (Hundreds of reviews have exposed the fact that our textbooks are overwhelmingly biased toward Muslims over Christianity and Judaism, with Islam always portrayed as being more significant than all other religions).

“Political Correctness has gone amuck and is destroying our country. Whatever happened to freedom of speech? If it’s right for Muslims to host events in tax-funded public facilities, then what is wrong with a group of citizens wanting the same privilege?

“Last December, ACT! for America – Knoxville Chapter was granted permission by Knox County Schools to use the facilities of Farragut High School to hold an educational forum including two speakers, followed by an opportunity for the public to answer any questions of the two. This we called the Town Hall – Farragut.

“We in good faith and urgent vitality have been promoting this event for the past four months, believing we were following all the guidelines given to us. We have spent over $1500.00 to advance this cause, including taking out a special insurance policy just to cover this occasion.

“The purpose of the meeting was to educate our local citizens about the dangers of Sharia Law, especially as it negatively affects our children, our churches, our law enforcement personnel, and our community leaders. Now, due to the fear of Muslims in the Knoxville area, the venue for the event that was open to everyone was cancelled. This is a great example of what Sharia Law is doing to America.”

 

Indiana, Tennessee, Florida: Muslims busted in various acts of fraud

More hard-working immigrants who contribute to American by running fraud schemes out of convenience stores via Diversity’s Darkside.

Indiana:

Amin Ali Saleh, 36, 6 North Holman Street, was arrested and preliminary charged with Possession of Synthetic Marijuana, Possession of a look-a-like Substance, Dealing in Synthetic Marijuana and for Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

According to Corporal Travis Thickstun of the Indiana State Excise Police, officers from his department, along with officers from the Peru Police Department served a search a warrant at Peru Stop & Go (BP), 452 W. Main Street, Peru, today looking for evidence related to the sale of counterfeit goods.

“What turned into a four-month investigation into counterfeit drugs and drugs sales,” Thickstun said in his press release, “began when officers saw what appeared to be counterfeit merchandise in the store in November 2013.”

Nashville, Tennessee:

Metro Police said Rum Wholesale at 1305 Dickerson Pike was deemed a public nuisance for repeated distribution of synthetic opiates.

The owner, 40-year-old Mohammed Amer, was arrested Wednesday and charged with possession of counterfeit controlled substances with intent to sell. He will also be charged with felony tampering.

On March 17, three convenience stores in Nashville were shut down for allegedly selling liquid relaxation shots that contained mitragynine, a chemical specifically banned by Tennessee law because of its opiate characteristics.

At that time, the stores, which included Discount Tobacco & Beer on Robinson Road, Madison Discount Tobacco & Beer on N. Gallatin Pike, and Litton’s Corner Market on Gallatin Pike, were declared public nuisances and padlocked by order of the court.

During the investigation, detectives learned that Rum Wholesale was a supplier of the liquid shots. When they went to the business on March 17, they found an employee, 27-year-old Rabea Aldheleai, loading boxes of the illegal liquid shots into a BMW.

Tampa, Florida:

LARGO — Three men were arrested Friday after what police said was a long undercover investigation into the sale of narcotics and the illegal trafficking of Electronic Benefit Transfer (food stamp) cards at a local convenience store.

On Friday morning, city police, fire and code enforcement officers along with state Department of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco agents and fraud officials raided the store, seizing drugs and illegally traded EBT cards.

They also arrested three men: Ibrahim Saraeb, 47; Amad Almadanali, 47, and Ali Saraeb-Perez, 25, on drug, counterfeiting and fraud charges.

 

Tennessee: Mega mosque gets judge removed from zoning appeal

Muslim thuggery in plain view. via Murfreesboro mosque hearing gets heated in courthouse hallway – WSMV Channel 4. (video at link)

MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) – The battle over a cemetery being planned at a Murfreesboro mosque didn’t end when Monday’s hearing did. Afterwards, a heated confrontation erupted in a courthouse hallway involving supporters and opponents.

The board of zoning appeals approved the cemetery in January, but opponents were seeking an injunction Monday, hoping to stop the cemetery at the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro from moving forward. They claim there is standing water at the site and traffic concerns.

But the shocker came when a motion asking Judge Robert Corlew III to recuse himself was granted.

“We’ll go to another judge because the Islamic center didn’t think Judge Corlew could give them a fair trial. I think it was sad today for all the people took off work to be here,” said mosque opponent Lou Ann Zelenick.

If the judges name sounds familiar that is because Robert Corlew previously ruled that construction approval for the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro was void…that there was not sufficient public notice of the meeting where construction had been approved two years earlier.

Emotions were high following the hearing, as mosque opponents claimed a student journalist from the University of Maryland was secretly recording even though she had been right alongside other members of the media in the public courthouse.

“You’re really inciting work. It’s scary what you’re doing,” Zelenick said.

“The level of emotion in this case has been high throughout, and I think that spilled over after the judge decided to step down,” said attorney John Green, who is representing the mosque.

The plaintiffs have 15 days to appeal the judge’s ruling or can wait on the clerk of the court to appoint a new judge.

 At least ten death threats by Muslims on Zelenick’s life yet no arrests. Religion of peace?

Memphis Islamic Center plans $6.5M expansion

Another massive Islamic compound in middle America.

via Memphis Islamic Center plans $6.5M expansion – Memphis Business Journal. h/t Vinenco

The Memphis Islamic Center plans this summer to launch construction of the first phase of a $6.5 million recreational center in Shelby County.

The MIC is accepting bids from general contractors to build a multifunctional hall as part of a planned Family Life Center on vacant land at 10299 Humphrey Road, next door to its current 6,000-square-foot facility.

The three-phase, 63,144-square-foot project will eventually include an indoor gym, exercise rooms, classrooms, a daycare area, a library and more worship space, said Dr. Bashar Shala, chairman of the MIC board.

The MIC’s 55-acre campus could also eventually have an elderly care and community medical facility, Shala said.

Memphis-based Pickering Firm Inc. is the project’s engineer and architect.

Back in 2010, a news article noted: Plans to Build Massive Islamic Centers Raise Concerns in Tennessee

At the end of the first Iraq war, the United States designated Nashville, Tenn., to be a “gateway city” for refugees fleeing their war-torn country, setting the stage for what has become, less than 20 years later, a rapidly growing Muslim population in the Volunteer State.

This is happening all over the U.S. and within 40-50 years your children and their children will wonder why Americans let this happen as they fight for their lives.

As the Muslim population grows and their communities spread throughout the state, religious leaders say their places of worship must do the same, spurring the construction of mosques and the massive Islamic centers that host them in several Tennessee cities, including Murfreesboro, Memphis and Antioch.

But the physical size of these Islamic centers – and the associations and writings of some of the leaders behind them – are raising some concerns nationwide.

One of those leaders is a favorite guest of the MIC, an imam who calls Christians and Jews filthy and that their lives hold no value in the state of jihad.

The latest video on their website is entitled the Conquest of Makkah.

The real conquest is taking place right here in the United States.

via Tennessee Council 4 Political Justice.

We have heard that on Thursday, February 6, 2013, the Nashville Jewish Federation will again be hosting CAIR promoter Remziya Suleyman, Director of the American Center for Outreach (ACO) as a speaker.

This is the second time that the Jewish Federation has sponsored Suleyman as a speaker. Suleyman’s collaboration with and promotion of Muslim Brotherhood off-shoot Hamas-linked CAIR is well documented.  This past summer she brought Islamist militant and CAIR Michigan Director Dawud Walid to train Tennessee’s Muslim students. Walid is noted for demonizing Jews as the source of Black Muslims’ problems.

It doesn’t seem to impress Federation Director Mark Freedman that Suleyman’s beehive of friends includes people like Islamist radical Linda Sarsour CAIR’s 2013 American Muslim of the Year who sends tweets that say “[n]othing is creepier than Zionism.”  Nor does Suleyman’s admiration for both the Nation of Islam and Rev. Al Sharpton seem to bother him much.

The Federation’s second in command CRC director is Abbie Wolf, who previously worked for the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). In addition to confirming CAIR’s Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas ties, the ADL website adds this information about CAIR:

“CAIR also continues to offer a platform to conspiratorial Israel-bashers and outright anti-Semites.  For example, CAIR’s Florida chapter operates a Web site that makes anti-Semitic material available for visitors interested in learning about Islam. CAIR also organizes anti-Israel rallies during which protestors and speakers engage in anti-Semitic rhetoric, use offensive Holocaust imagery likening Jews and Israelis to Nazis, and express support for terror groups.”

Social Studies Textbook Review in Tennessee and Texas

Readers frequently ask how they can get involved. Here’s one. via Citizen Warrior: Social Studies Textbook Review in Tennessee and Texas.

The following was written by Roy White, Chapter Coordinator for ACT! for America in San Antonio, Bexar, and Kendall:

We all know of plenty of examples of the bias in social studies textbooks revealed by various groups and individuals. Concerned Tennessee citizens formed a group called Textbook Advocates that conducted reviews of over 50 textbooks that can be found here. Many of those errors involved Islam to include incomplete information on Muhammad, overstating Islam’s influence and simple disparity in word/sentence count on discussions of Islam versus other religions. Their findings are not surprising to readers of Citizen Warrior and others who follow this topic.

The cleverly named, The Textbook Tattler was published to provide citizens with a synopsis of the typical errors found. It is likely these same errors are found in many of the textbooks found in states around the country. Tennessee’s efforts resulted in the current methodology of textbook selection to be under review and will most likely be replaced in the next legislative session. Their landmark success has inspired others to follow their lead including a group in Texas.

In early 2014 Texas begins the process of reviewing Social Studies textbooks that will be used for the 2015-16 school year. A group called “Truth in Texas Textbooks” or “Triple T” have begun recruiting volunteers from inside of Texas and outside who would be willing to help review the Social Studies textbooks that will be submitted by publishers.

Over 48 million textbooks are sold in Texas alone! This is a huge contract for publishers. Estimates range from 50-80% of school districts in the nation choose the same textbooks as those used in Texas schools. Publishers know, what sells in Texas will lead to millions of dollars in other states!

The purpose of TTT is simple, to provide Social Studies textbooks that are truthful and factual that meet the Texas Education Knowledge Standards (TEKS) as defined here. Fortunately Texas has put in place a well-defined set of standards that were recently updated with this resolution on eliminating the pro-Islamic/anti-Christian bias found in the current social studies textbooks.

TTT will not simply focus on eliminating this bias but many other “PC” related themes that are so often found in textbooks today. We are not affiliated with any other NPO or national organization but are independent and have reached out to groups and individuals around the country (including Tennessee) for volunteers who are willing to help us.

The long-term goal would be to have one site, such as www.textbookadvocates.com be the single depository of these textbook reviews being done around the country so teachers, parents, advocates can have a single one stop shopping place to go and see a consolidated list of reviews of textbooks.

Publishers get away with their PC tainted textbooks because in the past groups around the country didn’t talk to each other or communicate their findings. Building on what Tennessee has done Texas wishes to continue this movement to put these reviews, along with others, in the public domain at a single website that will give information to everyone who is interested.

Anti-smokers advocacy groups weren’t effective until they banded together against the tobacco companies and shared the data from all their findings. TTT wishes to take the same approach.

Read it all, including info for those who’d like to volunteer on the project, at Citizen Warrior.

Tennessee: ‘Largest-ever coordinated’ synthetic drug bust nets 20+ Muslims

An international ring busted this summer that apparently wasn’t national news.  via Synthetic Drug Indictments and Raids Net Dozens of Defendants | WBBJTV West Tennessee’s News Channel | h/t Act Memphis 

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Indictments were unsealed Wednesday in Memphis and Jackson, TN naming 40 people alleged to be part of the synthetic drug trade in West Tennessee, announced U.S. Attorney Edward L. Stanton III; Resident Agent-in-Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) Memphis office Brian Chambers; and Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich.

“Project Synergy,” a DEA initiative, is the largest-ever coordinated law enforcement strike against designer drugs, targeting manufacturers, distributors, and retailers of more than 250 synthetic drugs being abused every day in the United States and globally. This initiative was conducted in conjunction with prosecutors in Memphis and Jackson as part of the Department of Justice’s Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) Program, which seeks to reduce the availability of drugs by disrupting and dismantling major drug trafficking organizations, money laundering organizations and related criminal enterprises.

“As alleged, the defendants were involved in an international web of distributing illegal synthetic drugs at numerous retail establishments throughout West Tennessee and beyond, many lining their pockets with multi-million-dollar profits,” said U.S. Attorney Stanton. “Today’s indictments, arrests and seizures demonstrate that the manufacturing, distribution and purchase of these highly addictive and potentially lethal substances will not be tolerated, and those who are brazen enough to sell this poison, particularly to our children and young adults, will be held accountable. I thank the DEA for their diligent efforts with this case over the past two years and the more than 400 federal, state and local law enforcement officials who took part in today’s sweeping take down throughout the Western District of Tennessee.”

After a two-year investigation involving federal state and local law enforcement, hundreds of purchases and seizures were made from more than 34 different storefronts in the Western District of Tennessee. During today’s takedown more than 76 search warrants and 35 arrest warrants were executed.

Officials said the drugs seized in this investigation generally fall into two categories: synthetic cannabinoids and synthetic cathinones. Synthetic cannabinoids, often known by the street names “Spice” or “K2,” mimic the hallucinogenic effects of marijuana with the added side effects of hallucinations, seizures, and dependency/addiction not usually associated with marijuana users.

Synthetic cathinones, better known as “bath salts” or “plant food,” produce a high similar to methamphetamine, MDMA or cocaine. Abusers experience chest pain, increased blood pressure, agitation, panic attacks, irrational behavior, hallucinations, paranoia, delusions, and even heart attacks and strokes.

“The sellers of synthetic drugs specifically target our young people,” said District Attorney General Weirich. “We will not sit back and ignore this threat to our children and to the entire community.”

Tennessee: Murfreesboro mega-mosque wants to expand already

This time it’s the cemetery (where they bury Muslims without a casket and at least one has been buried already…seemingly illegally).

The mosque was Built on a Foundation of Lies. It was illegally approved and forced on citizens by Obama’s Dept of inJustice. The precedence has been set. What’s next? Loudspeakers and the call to prayer? 

via Murfreesboro mosque wants to expand cemetery.

The Islamic Center of Murfreesboro wants permission to expand a cemetery on its 15-acre property.

Mosque representatives are scheduled to attend the Rutherford County Board of Zoning Appeals meeting Dec. 11. The 4:30 p.m. meeting will take place in the second-floor courtroom of the Rutherford County Courthouse on the public square in Murfreesboro.

The Islamic Center of Murfreesboro secured permission to build its mosque on Veals Road off Bradyville Pike from the county’s Regional Planning Commission in May 2010. Before the meeting, County Planning Director Doug Demosi approved the congregation’s request to bury one member on the property but informed the mosque it would have to seek board of zoning appeals approval to expand the cemetery.

Approval? A Judge ruled Murfreesboro mosque construction must stop. And a Judge blocked the occupancy permit for Murfreesboro mosque. Many more truths can be found in our archives.

After hearing about the government approvals, many people complained and filed a lawsuit about the county approving a larger mosque that included long-term plans for the cemetery without giving enough public notice about it.

 Or no notice at all.

An unprecedented victory in Tennessee!

Commissioners refuse to approve social studies textbooks

Imagine the scene.

The Tennessee Department of Education’s Textbook Commission is meeting to consider approval of recommended social studies textbooks for the state’s public schools.

Normally, nobody from the public shows up at these meetings.

But this time, ACT! for America chapter leaders and members are out in force.

They’ve done their homework, using our “Education or Indoctrination: The Treatment of Islam in 6th through 12th grade American Textbooks” report.

They’ve done the legwork, educating public officials and the members of this textbook commission, showing them the many flawed and biased ways Islam is presented in the textbooks they are considering.

And then the time comes for the commissioners to vote on whether or not to approve the textbooks.

And not one of them makes a motion to do so.

So a second call was made for a motion.

And not one of them offers the motion.

The state’s Director of Curriculum stands up and sternly warns the commissioners there’s a deadline looming and they need to approve these books.

And the commissioners hold fast and refuse to approve the textbooks.

Wow.

To our knowledge this is the first time a state textbook selection committee has refused to approve textbooks due to concerns about how Islam is presented!

Yes, folks, you can fight city hall. It’s not easy, but it can be done.

You have to be informed, organized and strategic. Which is what we do at ACT! for America and what our Tennessee chapter leaders and members did.

They did it smart. They did it right. And they’re just the latest example of what ACT! for America is accomplishing and how our strategic and grassroots approach WORKS!

The final chapter still has to be written. There’s another commission meeting on October 23rd.

We need the commissioners to stand their ground and refuse to approve these social studies textbooks.

If you live in Tennessee, you can help push this across the finish line by contacting the Rutherford County chapter of ACT! for America at rutherfordcountyact@gmail.com.

Thank you, ACT! for America chapter leaders and members in Tennessee for your awesome work on our behalf. Keep fighting the good fight!

Memphis: Anti-jihad booth at festival upsets Muslim

via HALALBOOZESHACK

Response from ACT Memphis: A Response to the WMC News Story:

It is unfortunate that a woman was offended when ACT! Memphis staffed a booth at the Bartlett Festival. But we must wonder;

  • Was she offended when a HAMAS Intelligence officer was found living in Collierville and deported?
  • Was she offended when the president of the Muslim Student Association at the Univ of Memphis declared the MSA was a regular donor to the Holy Land Foundation, which was convicted in a federal trial in Dallas, TX of funding a terrorist organization?

  • Was she offended when federal agents raided the Memphis home of a Syrian citizen and found a photograph of him shouldering a rocket-powered grenade launcher in Bosnia while standing next to an associate of Osama bin Laden?

  • Is she offended that the mortgage of a Memphis mosque is held by a front organization of the Iranian government that had its assets seized by the federal government?

  • Was she offended when an Islamic school in Memphis announced that they hired a consultant who was listed in a secret Muslim Brotherhood document that was seized as evidence by federal agents?

  • Was she offended when an Islamic school in Memphis had a former employee of the Holy Land Foundation as a guest speaker to introduce the new principal?

  • Is she offended that several mosques in Memphis are owned by NAIT, an organization that was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial, the largest terrorist financial case to be prosecuted in the United States?

  • Was she offended when a young man from Memphis was radicalized by persons at mosques in Nashville and after returning from “training” in Yemen, went on to shoot down two U.S. Army recruiters in Little Rock, killing one and seriously injuring the other?

  • Was she offended when federal agents raided the apartment of an Egyptian student, next to a mosque near the University of Memphis and found an airline captain’s uniform and a training video labeled, “How an Airline Captain Should Look and Act.” Was she offended when this student was deported for using a false Social Security number and determined to have been in the country illegally?

Yes, it seems the lady has many events to be offended about. But exposing the truth is not one of them.

Tennessee: Students Taken on Field Trip to Mosque, Given Korans

There is a full scale war of indoctrination to Islam being waged in public schools and libraries across the United States. And you and your children are losing. 

via Todd Starnes » Students Take Field Trip to Mosque, Receiv(e Koran

A Tennessee high school has decided to revise its field trip policy after a group of freshmen were taken to an Islamic mosque where they were given copies of the Koran and while a student who opted out of the trip was given a worksheet that alleged Muslims treated their conquered people better than the United States treated minorities.

The students were in an honors world studies class at Hendersonville High School and the field trips to the mosque as well as a Hindu temple were part of a three-week course on world religions.

But some parents objected to the trips and wondered why the school would tour a mosque but not a Christian church or a Jewish synagogue.

“If you can’t go to all five, why are you going to any?” asked parent Mike Conner. “We sent the principal an email and voiced our concerns. She sent back a reply and told us they could not afford to go to all five.”

Daily Roll Call reported the students were taken to the Islamic Center of Nashville.

Children were given punch and cookies at the mosque where they listened to readings from the Koran, Conner said. They were also given copies of the Islamic holy book – which some students took and others declined.

During their visit to the Hindu temple, students engaged in meditation.

“Our kids are being indoctrinated and this is being shoved in their face,” Conner told Fox News. “It tells me they are pushing other religions and they want Christianity to take a back seat. They want our children to be tolerant of everything except Christianity.”

A Sumner County Schools spokesman declined to answer questions about specific religious activities the children may have engaged in, but he did send a statement acknowledging there was concern about the trip.

“Our district has reviewed the practice and decided to eliminate field trips to religious venues from this class, as it does not provide equal representation to all the religions studied in the course unit,” the statement read. “This decision was made due to the fact that equal representation in regards to field trips for all religions studied in the course is not feasible.”

Conner told Fox News his 14-year-old stepdaughter Jessica decided not to attend the trip. So her teachers instructed her to write a paper comparing and contrasting the Christian, Hindu and Islamic faiths. That’s when his daughter noticed something strange.

“There was one page on the sayings of Jesus, two-thirds of a page on the sayings of Gandhi, and five pages on Muhammed,” Conner said.

The section about Islam was titled, “Religious Tolerance in Islam,” according to the worksheets provided to Fox News.

The author wrote that the “Prophet of Islam was prepared to live in peace with the followers of other monotheistic religions, especially Judaism and Christianity.”

The author also disputed claims that Islam is a violent religion or that conquered nations were given a choice – Islam or death.

“There is no denying that Muslims in the Middle East and Asian conquered lands of other peoples but they did not impose their religion over them,” the author wrote.

The author also stated that minorities conquered by the Muslims were treated better than minorities living in the United States.

“If we were to compare the attitude of the Muslim rulers towards the minorities living under their rule during the nineteenth century – with the attitude of the Europeans and the Americans towards their minorities, I dare to say that the record of the Muslims would be better,” the author wrote.

Conner told Fox News his daughter declined to complete what she considered to be an unfair and unbalanced assignment.

“Because of a surplus in information on Muhammed, and a lack of complete and thorough information on Mahatma Gandhi and Jesus Christ, there is not enough true facts to properly complete a comparison and contrasting paper,” Jessica wrote on her paper.

Her parents warned her that she might be punished by her teachers for standing up for her beliefs – and she was. Jessica received a ‘zero’ for the assignment.

Conner and his wife met with school officials who refused to change their daughter’s grade or give her an assignment that was more balanced.

They told us we were being hostile towards Islam,” Conner said. “It was a very confrontational meeting. Their attitude was, ‘I can’t believe you would question our motives with your children.’”

Conner said he hopes the school board will take action against the teachers.

“Someone needs to be held accountable,” he said. “They are our children – not theirs.”

Update:

Sumner County Schools provided Fox News with a statement regarding the field trips: “Our district has reviewed the practice and decided to eliminate field trips to religious venues from this class, as it does not provide equal representation to all the religions studied in the course unit.”

via Todd StarnesWhy Did a Tennessee Grade School Ban Pork? | FOX News & Commentary.

A Tennessee elementary school banned students from eating ham sandwiches, BLT’s and anything else made with pork, but eventually lifted the ban after parents complained.

snacklist

Third grade teachers at Sunset Elementary School in Brentwood, Tenn. sent home an “Approved Snack List” for the school year and it specifically banned anything that comes from a pig.snacklist

“No meats containing pork,” read the memorandum. “Starting Monday, August 12, 2013 your child must provide their own snack from the above approved snack list.”

Kids could nosh on raw vegetables without dips or sauces, fresh fruit, crackers, pretzels, and popcorn – but no ribs or pork rinds.

“Only choose a food from the following list to bring into school for snack,” the memorandum stated in bold-face type. “No other food items are permitted.”

One day after the pork ban went into effect, Williamson County Schools posted a message on their Facebook page telling parents to ignore the rules.

“Schools should only be offering suggested snack choices, and that information will be sent home only if your child is in a classroom where there is a food allergy,” the district stated. “Any reference to not allowing pork products in school is incorrect. Please disregard.”

The district said the point of the memorandum was to address food allergies and approved snack lists.

The memorandum did not explain why the school had become a pork-free zone, leading to lots of confusion among parents.

“I’ve never heard of a life-threatening pork allergy,” one parent wrote on Facebook.

The no-pork rule generated lots of conversation on Nashville’s talk radio stations and a number of callers and several hosts wondered if it had something to do with students who might be Muslim.

“Typical list for a Madrassa,” wrote Nashville radio host Michael DelGiorno on his Facebook page.

“If you think this has anything to do with something besides appeasing Muslims then you are either stupid or willfully ignorant,” one of his listeners wrote.

A search of the school’s website returns several results for Islam and Muslim.

One Twitter user responded to the school’s dhimmitude even though they retracted the edict.
