Tennessee: Second parent confirms 3rd graders given Nation of Islam propaganda

And were told not to take the evidence home. via Todd Starnes, Second Parent: My child got Nation of Islam paper, too | Fox News.

A second parent has now come forward acknowledging their child received a Nation of Islam “handout” in a third grade class at Harold McCormick Elementary School in Elizabethton, Tennessee – contradicting claims by the school district that the document was not distributed in the classroom.

I first told you about this story on Monday. Parent Sommer Bauer told me her son’s teacher gave him a document that portrayed the presidents on Mount Rushmore as being racists.

We still don’t know how that Nation of Islam information found its way into that third grade classroom.

School superintendent E.C. Alexander refuted allegations that the Nation of Islam document had been distributed in class. He told me the document was never meant for public distribution and that the child took the sheet of paper from the teacher’s work station without her permission.

“The student (without permission) took the sheet from a “ton” of discarded teacher’s material on that table; then, the student took it home and gave it to the parent,” Alexander wrote in an email to educators after my column was published.

Supt. Alexander also posted a statement on the school district’s website. He hurled all sorts of allegations my way – words like “misleading” and “totally incorrect” and “sensational.”

Yet, he never got around to telling us what was misleading or totally incorrect or sensational. And we still don’t know how that Nation of Islam information found its way into that third grade classroom.

“Our System has been defamed (possibly permanently),” he bemoaned.

“Now, the thought that we as public educators would deliberately distribute such material is absolutely absurd,” he wrote.

He also took great umbrage at my characterization of the Nation of Islam document as a “handout.”

“The sheet in question was not a hand-out sheet distributed to students,” he wrote on the school district’s website. I should point out that he underlined the word “not.”

Instead, he referred to it as a “sheet.” So for the sake of accuracy, the Nation of Islam “handout” will be known as the Nation of Islam “sheet.”

Parents were given a letter on Tuesday stressing that the material contained in the Nation of Islam “sheet ” was not distributed to students, was not shown during or after the lesson and was not used as a reference.

There’s just one problem with the school district’s explanation – a second parent has now come forward corroborating Mrs. Bauer’s story.

“Yes, they were handed out and yes the students did look at them and read them,” the parent told me.

The parent asked not to be identified to protect her child. She told me she came forward because of how the school is treating Mrs. Bauer’s son.

“I don’t want this little boy to be looked at as a liar,” the parent said. “As of right now that’s what all of these adults are making this boy out to be – and that makes me sick to my stomach.”

So what happened inside that third grade classroom at Harold McCormick Elementary School?

According to the parent, the children were separated into four groups. Each group was given two “sheets of paper.”

“The teacher held up each one and said, ‘These do not go home. These are just to use here,” the parent told me.

The Nation of Islam “sheet ” explained that George Washington hailed from Virginia, a “prime breeder of black people.” Of Theodore Roosevelt, it was alleged he called Africans “ape-like.” There were also disparaging comments made about Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln.

The parent told me that the teacher did not teach students from the Nation of Islam “sheet.”  But she did hand it to the students.

Maybe this was just an innocent mistake. It’s possible the teacher may have printed the first thing she Googled without giving it a second glance. It happens. Teachers are busy folks.

But what was not an innocent mistake was a school district trying to portray an eight-year-old boy as the bad guy.

And what is not acceptable is sending out mass emails accusing the child of pilfering a “sheet” from his teacher’s work station.

If I didn’t know better – I’d say that little boy is the victim of grownup bullying.


Starnes is being nice. This was not innocent. Any person who looks at that image for one moment would either read it and determine it should not be part of 3rd grade curriculum or print it out with the intention of giving it or reading it to students. The defiant district website states the teacher was a woman so it was one of the third grade teachers they list. Which of these is the ignoramus who can’t be trusted with innocent minds?

Maryland: School bans USMC dad who requested daughter’s removal from Islamic indoctrination

Release the curriculum for all to see. via Parent banned from La Plata HS after Islam homework dispute — SoMdNews.com.

The father of a La Plata High School student has been barred from the school grounds after officials said he threatened to disrupt the school environment.

Kevin Wood was issued a no-trespass order last week after a telephone call with La Plata High Vice Principal Shannon Morris on Thursday. Wood called to air complaints regarding his daughter’s world history assignment that asked students to examine elements of the Islamic religion.

Morris and La Plata High Principal Evelyn Arnold reported to the Charles County Public Schools central office that Wood in his phone call had threatened to upset the school environment in some way Monday, according to school spokeswoman Katie O’Malley-Simpson. O’Malley-Simpson declined to elaborate on what threats Wood had made.

If the trespass order is ignored, police could be called and have the violator removed.

“We don’t take that lightly,” said O’Malley-Simpson. “We have a lot of students, and safety comes first. We don’t allow disruptions at the schools, especially if we’re forewarned of them.”

Wood, a former corporal with the U.S. Marine Corps, where he was enlisted for eight years, said in an interview Monday afternoon outside of the school system’s central office that he did not wish for his daughter, a junior at La Plata, to learn the Islamic religion, a faith he does “not believe in,” he said.

Wood and his wife, Melissa Wood, said they reached out to the school last week and asked that their daughter be removed from her world history course for the duration that the class covered Islam. The Woods said they spoke by a telephone to a woman, who they identified as “Ms. Pearl,” who listened to their request and said she would investigate the possibility of an alternative assignment.

A directory on the La Plata High School website lists Shanif Pearl as an administrative assistant.

It was Morris who returned their phone call, the Woods said. Morris informed them that the teacher could not offer an alternative assignment, and any assignment the Woods’ daughter missed would receive a failing grade.

“I told her straight up ‘you could take that Muslim-loving piece of paper and shove it up your white [expletive],” Kevin Wood said in an interview. “If [students] can’t practice Christianity in school, they should not be allowed to practice Islam in school.”

Kevin Wood, who identified himself as Catholic, denied that he had issued any threats or that he had planned to show up on the La Plata campus Monday.

In a later phone call with Morris, Kevin Wood said he blasted the school for violating his daughter’s “constitutional rights” and said he would contact the media and “bring a [expletive]storm down on them like they’ve never seen.”

“Nowhere did he ever threaten,” Melissa Wood said. “And this is where it’s gotten totally blown out of proportion.”

The La Plata school resource officer informed Kevin Wood by phone Friday he was not allowed on the property.

Students are required to pass world history as a graduation requirement, O’Malley-Simpson said. A piece of the world history course involves studying Middle Eastern culture and the formation of its empires — the Maryland State Board of Education has dictated that Middle East be part of the curriculum for many years, O’Malley-Simpson said.

At all three levels of the course, normal, honors and Advanced Placement, students study this material. Students must also enroll in government and U.S. history.

Policies exist that allow a child to complete an alternative assignment if the parents complain, O’Malley-Simpson said, but not in the case of world history.

“If parents object to a book that’s assigned, and the assignment is to gather certain reading skills, assigning them a different book doesn’t matter,” she said. “The student still gains the skills and knowledge. In the case of world history and other subjects, it’s part of the curriculum and it’s part of the standards you’re supposed to learn.”

Students learn aspects of other religions as well, O’Malley-Simpson said. When studying the Renaissance era, they are taught aspects of Christianity and the role it played in the reformation. When students learn about China and India, Hinduism and Buddhism are both discussed, she said.

Administration will not be discontinuing the assignment in dispute, O’Malley-Simpson said.

The Woods’ daughter skipped the world history class Monday and will not complete any more assignments, per her parent’s wishes. She will receive “zeros” on those assignments, the Woods said.

The Woods met with Superintendent Kimberly A. Hill and Assistant Superintendent of Instruction Amy Hollstein on Monday. Hill contacted the family late Sunday night to arrange the meeting, the Woods said.

Any further meetings will also include Arnold, as she will decide whether to lift the order against Kevin Wood, O’Malley-Simpson said.

O’Malley-Simpson said she was unsure of how many orders have been issued in recent years, but said it was an uncommon occurrence.

Board of education member Jennifer Abell took to Facebook, saying “misinformation” had been circulated about the no trespass order.

“Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) social studies curriculum adheres to the Maryland World History curricular standards that are a requirement for all counties in the state. These standards include an analysis of the elements of culture such as art, music, religion, government, social structure, education, beliefs and customs in societies throughout history,” Abell wrote on Facebook. “Regarding the study of history specifically, the standards also state that students should be able to analyze the customs and beliefs of world religions and their expansion, as well as how their establishment has impacted other areas of culture, and in certain times and regions, even caused conflict.”

Melissa Wood called Abell’s full post, which included line about “ensuring the safety of students and staff of the school” a “smear” against her husband.

She said that she intends to address the matter both with the Maryland Department of Education and her state legislators.


Why are these school administrators and spokeswoman so adamant in their forcing Islam on students?

Contact the school to express your concern in a respectful and constructive manner (unlike some commenters here).

Florida: Head of Islamic school accused of raping middle school girls leaving one needing ‘surgical repair’

And the school covered it up. via Tariq Ahmad accused of raping students and leaving one needing ‘surgical repair’ | Daily Mail Online.

Tariq Ahmad, 35, who worked at Nur-Ul-Islam Academy, Florida, has been accused of the sexual abuse and rape of two middle school female pupils

 

Police are hunting the former head teacher of a private Islamic school accused of the sexual abuse and rape of two middle school female students.

Tariq Ahmad, 35, who worked at Nur-Ul-Islam Academy, Florida, has been charged with five first degree counts after the alleged abuse which left one student needing ‘substantial surgical repair’.

The girls were aged 14 and 15 when Ahmad allegedly forced them into sexual relationships, according to a lawsuit.

Their attorneys said Ahmed would use text messages, social media and even code on the chalk boards in the classroom to set up meetings with the girls.

They also claim the Academy officials knew of Ahmed’s illegal conduct for years and did nothing until now.

Pembroke Pines police said the alleged incidents occurred between 2006 and 2008, but the pupils only came forward after years of therapy.

In a statement, the school said: ‘Recently, we have become aware of disturbing allegations regarding a former teacher of Nur-ul-Islam Academy.

‘These allegations relate to alleged acts of the teacher six to eight years ago, which did not occur on the school’s premise, concerning at least one former student of the Academy.

‘Upon learning of these allegations, the Academy immediately suspended the teacher’s employment, barred him from any further contact with Academy students and has since terminated his employment with the Academy.

Attorney Scott Mager said: ‘There was significant sexual abuse, intercourse and other inappropriate behaviour such that one of the students had to have substantial surgical repair of that (private) area. It’s horrific.

‘He would use the chalk board to arraign for times and places to meet victims after school,’ said attorney Michael Dolce.

The attorneys claim Nur-Ul-Islam Academy officials knew of Ahmed’s illegal conduct for years and did nothing until now.

‘They knew in 2008. What do they do? Absolutely nothing, expect accuse the kid of doing it. What do they do, they blame, they cover up, they don’t tell the parents,’ said Mr Mager.

Pembroke Pines Police are currently looking for Ahmad who allegedly fled the jurisdiction after he was made aware of his pending charges.

Sergeant Carlos Corretjer said: ‘There is an investigation, it’s still an open case,’ Corretjer said. ‘We’re still trying to locate him.’

The attorneys for the two students are asking anyone who may have information as to where Ahmed might be to contact Pembroke Pines Police immediately.

A LinkedIn profile in Ahmad’s name said he most recently served as the ‘head of high school’ at the academy, where he started working in August 2006.

 

After Marathon Bombing by Muslims, Boston promotes first Muslim police captain

…who is making indoctrinating school kids his number one priority. Terrorism pays. via Boston police department’s first Muslim captain puts a priority on working with children – Metro – The Boston Globe. h/t shoebat.com

1414003955081-e1414275494626-500x333

As Boston police Captain Haseeb Hosein, a former science teacher and a firm believer in the power of reading, assumes leadership in Mattapan as the department’s first Muslim captain, he plans to have his officers walking not only the streets, but school hallways.

I want my guys to go into the schools and spend 30 minutes and readwith a child, said Hosein, 52, who received his captain’s shield Wednesday in a ceremony at police headquarters. “I hate that police officers are always the bad guy. We should be an asset.”

Hosein’s promotion makes him the highest-ranking Muslim in the department, according to a police spokesman, and one of three minority captains .

“The promotion to captain of Haseeb Hosein goes directly to my commitment of making the police department more reflective of the community we serve,” Police Commissioner William Evans said in a statement. “It is both historic and an honor for me to promote the first black Muslim captain to my command staff.”

Mayor Martin J. Walsh said Hosein is “a fantastic addition to the leadership.”

“He is an exceptionally skilled, qualified officer, with over two decades of experience in our neighborhoods,” Walsh said in a statement. “He will be a strong advocate and continue to build upon the strong community relationships we have developed in Mattapan.”

A 26-year veteran of the department who most recently worked as a lieutenant in Hyde Park, Hosein came with his parents to America from Trinidad when he was 10. He grew up in the Fields Corner section of Dorchester. Hosein received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Massachusetts Boston and a master’s in criminal justice from Boston University and served in the Marine Corps for 11 years. He is married with three grown children.

Before joining the Police Department, he taught high school science for a year in Florida and then middle school science in the Boston school system for three years.

As a police officer, he has worked all over the city, including a stint in Roxbury from 1993 to 2004, when homicide rates sometimes topped 80 per year.

Hosein served a four-month suspension after a complaint in 2007 that he and several other officers repeatedly under-reported hours while performing paid details, according to police records. Boston Police spokesman Sergeant Michael McCarthy said the department has moved past the incident.

“We’re not a department that holds something over somebody’s head,” said McCarthy. “It doesn’t make him any less qualified or deserving of a promotion.”

Hosein also said he had put the incident behind him.

“The police commissioner and the mayor looked at my record and they have faith that I can do the job,” he said.

As the department’s first Muslim captain, he said, he feels he can inspire young Muslims to join the force and serve as an ambassador for a faith that is often viewed negatively.

“I can be a voice to denounce violence, and let people know that the 1.6 billion Muslims [in the world] are just like them,” Hosein said. “I hope to be that voice that speaks out loud.”


Did any of the other corrupt cops get promoted or just the Muslim? Would any parent want this unethical, corrupt cop whose goal is to promote Islam and deny it’s violent, jihadist nature anywhere near their children?

What are the chances he went to the same mosque as the Boston Bombers? How embedded is Hosain with the Muslim Brotherhood mosques and organizations in the Boston area? How close is he to the terror-linked imams?

UK: High school science teacher pleads guilty to terror charges

via Science teacher facing jail after pleading guilty to terror charges | Daily Express.

Jamshed Javeed, 30, admitted two counts of engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts when he appeared at Woolwich Crown Court today.

The bearded teacher, of Cringle Road in Levenshulme, Manchester, appeared in court today flanked by two security staff, wearing a grey t-shirt and tracksuits bottoms.

He spoke only to confirm his name and enter guilty pleas at the brief hearing.

Prosecutor Simon Denison QC said there were “very specific and unusual facts” in the case.

Javeed, who taught children aged between 11 and 16 at Sharples High School in Bolton, was suspended from his job while police investigated his alleged links to volatile regions of the Middle East.

His arrest last December came after a probe into people suspected of travelling to Syria or supporting fighting in the troubled state, the court heard.

Javeed admitted two counts of engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts under the Terrorism Act 2006.

Javeed insists, however, that he planned to fight with rebel forces against Syrian autocrat Bashar al-Assad.

He claims that, despite twice being spoken to by MI5 officers, he was not told such a plot would constitute a terror offence under new domestic law.

Defence barrister, Charles Bott, today submitted a lengthy basis of plea, in which Javeed denied trying to help form a “new Islamic State”.

His lawyers say he is a “practising and sincere Muslim” and not an “extremist”.”He has never been involved in any political or religious organisations and has not attended any politics or religious rallies or demonstrations,” they add.”He was deeply moved by the images and reports of the extreme suffering of the Syrian people at the hand of Bashar Al-Assad’s vicious regime.”

Javeed’s legal team say it was against this background that Javeed “came to the conclusion that he should go to support the ordinary people of Syria”.

“He accepts that this would have meant becoming involved in some fighting, as well as humanitarian relief.

“He also acknowledges that he spent time on the internet looking at various websites and followed individuals on Twitter.

“But he does not accept that he has an ‘extremist’ mindset. Access to this information is extremely easy [and] viewed by very many people,” his lawyers say.

Javeed’s legal team said his younger brother, Mohammed Javeed, went to Syria to fight with rebel forces battling Assad, and he is now believed missing in the war-torn state.

Javeed’s sentencing hearing is expected to take place on 12 December.


It’s not an extremist mindset. It’s Islam. It’s in the Koran.

Who’s teaching your children?

Massachusetts Public Schools Teaching Kids ‘There Is No God But Allah’

via Atlas Shrugs, who writes:

The shahada that the children are forced to recite in Massachusetts public schools is the Muslim profession of faith (“there is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah”).

In order to convert to Islam, one says the shahada. Saying the shahada makes you a Muslim.

The shahada is what is on the black flag of jihad.

islamic_state_of_iraq

This is Massachusetts — home of the Boston Marathon jihad bombing.

This parent is hardly the first to protest this egregious submission to the most vicious and brutal ideology on the face of the earth. In Volusia County, Florida, hundreds protested Islamic lessons in their  “World History” text, a Common Core-approved high school history textbook.

With an entire chapter dedicated to the virtues of Islam, and not a single chapter for Christianity, the textbook has Floridians in a frenzy. And who is the biggest pusher of Common Cores besides leftist progressives? The Islamic Society of North America, another Muslim Brotherhood front group, along with Hamas-CAIR; and in Florida, Hamas-CAIR is on the offensive. (more here)

WHDH-screenshot

We have seen the increasing islamization of public school curriculum. History lessons in Islam are dawah — proselytizing for Islam. Large public school publishers have been bought by the Saudis.

This is not just a Massachusetts problem — it’s a national problem.

 via Some Revere parents upset over Islam in curriculum

REVERE, Mass. (WHDH) – Some parents in Revere were angry when they learned students were being taught about Islam and the Muslim religion.”No religion should be taught at school. In their paper it says Allah is their only God. That’s insulting to me as a Christian who believes in just Jesus only,” said Anthony Giannino.

A section of the textbook describing the beliefs of Muslims says, “I bear witness that there is no God but Allah.”

Giannino immediately pulled his son out of the classroom.

“We don’t believe in Allah. I don’t believe in my son learning about this here,” he said. “If my son was from another country and came here, he would have been catered to. But where he’s not being catered to, they give him an F.”

The superintendent of Revere Public Schools wrote the parents a letter explaining that it is simply part of the history in that section of the curriculum, and stated, “I want to be very clear that no religion is taught with the purpose of converting students to that religion…”

Other parents said they had no issue with the assignment.

“What is Muslim about, what is Christianity about. That’s what I teach at home. Everybody should respect everybody else’s religion,” said Idalia Garcia.

“When you’re talking about a specific region in the world, there’s going to be traditions and there’s gonna be religions that children should learn about,” said Ovidio Raffa.

But some parents said they did not want their kids learning anything about Islam.

“They should also say to you, ‘in history, your son is going to learn about Islam,’ send out a letter,” said Giannino, who also said he was starting a petition and had plenty of supporters.


 Recall, Mass. schools also sent school kids to mosques where they were segregated and took part in Muslim prayers. Ask yourself how 1% of the population has so much influence on textbooks and school administration? Why are your children being targeted?

Yale, Colombia, DC host Tunisian Muslim Brotherhood Leader

How is a Muslim Brotherhood leader who espouses jihad permitted to travel and speak in the U.S.? via The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch.

The Tunisian Muslim Brotherhood has issued a press release reporting that Rachid Ghannouchi, the leader of the Tunisian Ennahda Party, visited the US in late September. According to the release, Mr. Ghannouchi was invited to speak at Yale and Columbia Universities as well as at the US Institute of Peace (USIP):

Rachid GhannouchiWASHINGTON, Oct. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Rached Ghannouchi, the leader of Tunisia’s Ennahdha (Renaissance) Party, visited the U.S. this week to urge lawmakers to publicly support democracy as Tunisia heads for Parliamentary elections on October 26. As the first, post-revolution Arab Spring country to conduct what are expected to be free and fair elections, Tunisia offers a sharp contrast to the region’s extremes.

‘Tunisia’s democratic journey is still nascent – and a visible support for the electoral process and its outcome will be crucial not just for Tunisia, but for the whole region and the U.S.,’ said Ghannouchi. ‘A lot is riding on Tunisia’s elections – it will be one of the most consequential electoral contests the world community will witness.’

Ghannouchi was invited to speak at Yale University in Connecticut and Columbia University in New York, and also addressed the U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington, DC this week. He reiterated that Tunisia’s consensus-based model will showcase that Islam and democracy can co-exist in the Arab world.

Read the rest here.

Despite his claim that Ennahda rejects any form of terrorism, in  May 2013, the GMBDW reported that Mr. Ghannouchi had  called for young people to realize that “Jihad belongs in Palestine.” In 2011, Mr. Ghannouchi gave an Arabic-language interview in which he predicted the end of Israel, a viewpoint which is not surprising given that he has had a long history of ties to Palestinian extremism and calls for terrorism. In February 2009, Mr. Ghannouchi was a signatory to the so-called Istanbul declaration that called for the opening of a “third jihadist front” against Israel. The statement was the result of a conference held under the auspices of the Global Anti-Aggression Campaign (GAAC), an international Islamist umbrella group comprised of Islamist scholars tied to the Global Muslim Brotherhood as well as Salafi-Jihadi scholars including individuals designated as terrorists by the US government.
