Arabs force California high school to retire nearly 100-Year-Old mascot

More like Muslim Arab complaints. via Coachella Valley Retires Nearly 100-Year-Old ‘Arab’ Mascot Following Complaints.

Coachella Valley High School has retired an Arab mascot the school has used since the 1920s, following complaints from the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) in November that the mascot was stereotypical and offensive.

At Friday’s opening season opening football game, the “bearded, snarling mascot with a large hooked nose who wears a headscarf,” was not present after nearly 100 years of its existence at the school, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The belly dancing genie which would normally appear during half-time was also retired.

The school’s Arab mascot was created nearly a century ago as gesture of recognition towards the desert-like region’s reliance on date farming, which is both a signature crop of the Coachella Valley and a traditionally Middle Eastern crop.

“I think anytime you get a face, anyone’s face and any nationality, and you make it into a caricature, there’s always going to be grounds for discrimination,” said alumnus Rich Ramirez in an interview with local NBC News affiliate in Palm Springs KMIR News 6. Ramirez is working with the school district and the ADC to arrive at a resolution.

Along with the ADC’s request to change the appearance of the Arab mascot, the group had also asked for the school’s “Arab” nickname to be changed, however the school district refused, the Chronicle notes. Steps have reportedly been taken to redesign the mascot’s appearance as well as the Arab face on the school’s logo.

Five designs have reportedly been submitted by the school district to the ADC for their approval. The group has taken the greatest liking so far to a design which depicts “a stoic man with a neatly trimmed beard. His face is partially covered in shadow and he’s wearing a white headscarf emblazoned wit the high school’s initial,  ‘CV,'” writes the Chronicle.

The Coachella Valley School District is reportedly the only district in the nation that the ADC is talking to regarding the issue surrounding a “stereotypical” mascot.


According to recent data there might not even be any Arabs in Coachella:

As Creeping Sharia noted in a 2013 post, Arabs whine over mascot, silent on town’s namesake that bans non-Muslims:

There won’t be a compromise. The Arab/Muslims will get the mascot changed and a hundred years of tradition will be wiped out forever.

At a minimum the compromise should include changing the name of the town from Mecca to something else. After all, Mecca – in real life – symbolizes true discrimination and villainies all non-Muslims as being idolaters and unclean.

Mecca and Madinah are cities of great importance in Islamic tradition, centres of pilgrimage and prayer, sacred places where Muslims are free from the distractions of daily life. The ban on non-Muslim visitors is mentioned in the Qur’an as follows: “Oh you who believe! Truly the idolaters are unclean; so let them not, after this year, approach the Sacred Mosque….” (9:28).

This verse specifically refers to the Grand Mosque in Mecca; later scholars have included Madinah in this ruling as well. The government of Saudi Arabia, which controls access to the holy sites, has decided upon a strict ban on both cities in their entirety.

Ohio: Muslim threatens to use AK47 to murder (non-Muslim) children at high school

Apparently this is not news in America. via Man Threatens to Murder Children Due to Israel-Hamas Conflict h/t Atlas Shrugs

An Ohio school was placed on lockdown Wednesday after a man with a “heavy accent” phoned the school and threatened to murder children with an AK-47 due to the current conflict between Israel and Hamas, according to local police.

All schools in Pickerington, Ohio, were placed on lockdown after an unknown man made a threatening call to the Pickerington North High School, Fairfield County Sheriff Dave Phalen confirmed to the Washington Free Beacon.

The man, who claimed to have an AK-47, said he planned to launch an attack on the school and kill students over his apparent anger at the Middle East conflict, Phalen said.

“The school received a call [at around 11:15 a.m.] from a male with a heavy accent and he indicated that he was going to attack Pickerington North due to attacks on Israel and was going to kill the kids and that he had an AK-47 gun,” Phalen recounted.

“He identified himself as ‘Mohammed Shehad,’” or something similar to that, and claimed to live in the area, Phalen said, explaining that those who fielded the call were unsure precisely what last name the man provided.

“My sense is that due to the way he identified himself it sounds like he was upset at Israel,” though the individual’s exact motivations remain unclear, Phalen said. At this point, authorities “really don’t know what his frame of mind was or what he was thinking.”

All area schools were placed on “exterior lockdown” as a precautionary measure, the Columbus Dispatch reported.

Fairfield County detectives also are beginning to investigate the matter to determine the individual’s identity.

“We have detectives assigned to that; they’re working on trying to trace the phone number and identify the suspect,” Phalen said.

Patrick Poole, a terrorism analyst who lives in the area, said he believed the threat was made by a person upset with Israel’s military action in the Gaza Strip.

“We have had a growing problem here in the Columbus area for years that local law enforcement and the media want to continue to sweep under the carpet,” Poole said. “Not only has Central Ohio been the home of the largest known al-Qaeda cell since 9/11—with several members currently in prison on terrorism charges and at least two deported—we’ve had a number of cases of homegrown jihadists come through town, including al-Shabaab rapper Omar al-Hammami and Little Rock Army recruiting station killer Carlos Bledsoe.”

“An al-Shabaab recruiter and fundraiser from the area was killed in a firefight in Mogadishu in 2010, and we know of several cases of young men who have left from Columbus to join the Somali terrorist group,” Poole said. “One of the original online jihadist forum operators, Sarfaraz Jamal, grew up in the area and initially ran his operation from his Worthington home.”

Additionally, “we just had a pro-Hamas rally at the statehouse a week and a half ago, a regular feature here in central Ohio whenever there is conflict in that part of the world,” Poole noted. “In fact, two of our local Hamas activists are currently in prison in Egypt. Now that the threat is targeting area school children, hopefully it will begin to wake people up to the scope of the problem.”

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.

City Univ of New York Law hosting “art” exhibit by convicted Muslim terrorists

via Post-9/11 Muslim terrorists and prisoners’ artwork will be displayed at CUNY Law School | Pamela Geller, Atlas Shrugs.

Art of Protest: Creative Stands Against Political Imprisonment exhibit opens tonight

Please help get the word out about this important new exhibit – organized by the National Coalition to Protect Civil Freedoms; CUNY Law School’s CLEAR Project (Creating Law Enforcement Accountability and Responsibility); CUNY Law Student for the Arts; and the Muslim Law Students Association – which opens tonight and will be up for at least 2 weeks (hopefully the show will be extended).

Art of Protest: Creative Stands Against Political Imprisonment

More info: https://www.facebook.com/events/1413791718907303/

For the first time ever, post-9/11 Muslim prisoners’ artwork will be displayed, read, recited, and spoken aloud to the public.

The National Coalition to Protect Civil Freedoms (NCPCF) in collaboration with CUNY-CLEAR; CUNY- CUNY-Law Students for Arts (LSfA); and the Muslim Law Students Association (MLSA) invites you to join us on the opening night of Arts and Poetry From the Window of Prisons.

Families and friends of prisoners, former prisoners, advocates, and community members, who have been resisting human rights violations since 9/11, will gather to speak on the opening night of the exhibition, August 7.

We invite you to join us in the discussion of how basic rights have eroded after 9/11. It’s an erosion that shows itself in War on Terror policies and practices – in our communities, courtrooms and prisons across the U.S. Through the exhibition, we hope to raise awareness about the prisoners and their conditions, to view the interconnectedness of their cases, political eras, and their lives.

Art reveals the person behind bars, it encourages the public to take a second look and raise awareness about the plight of political prisoners in the US. We will be joined collectively in the struggle for social justice, and this exhibition will create a space in which the voices and visions of the incarcerated political prisoners can be expressed.

The works include Muslim prisoners, imprisoned environmental, and animal rights activists. The artworks include a range of mediums, styles, and themes.

Arts and poetry from the following prisoners will be included:

Mohammad Shnewer

Tarek Mehanna

Shahawar Matin Siraj

Shukri Abu Baker

Mohammad Hossain

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.”

Freedom X is a non-profit legal organization protecting conservative and religious freedom of expression.
