Indiana: 2nd graders sing about Allah in public school show

Indiana. Home of the both the White House’s and Ft. Hood’s favorite Muslim Brotherhood-founded, unindicted Hamas-funding co-conspirator ISNA. Also home to Muslim Congressman Andre Carson, and Saudi-funded Indiana University.

From Todd Starnes at Fox News, hat tip Atlas Shrugs.

The principal of Lantern Road Elementary School in Fishers, IN, said they were trying to teach inclusiveness through their holiday production. It included references to Christmas, Hanukkah, Ramadan, Las Posadas and Kwanzaa. However, no other deity, other than Allah, was referenced in the show.

“It went off…without a hitch,” Danielle Thompson told the Indianapolis Star. “Several families thought it was a nice program.”

But others did not – especially David Hogan. His daughter came home with a copy of the lyrics just days before the production. Hogan, a Christian, told the American Family Association, a conservative advocacy group, that he was deeply concerned to learn that his daughter had been singing, “Allah is God.”

Here’s what the children were assigned to sing:

“Allah is God, we recall at dawn,
Praying ‘til night during Ramadan
At this joyful time we pray happiness for you,
Allah be with you all your life through.”

But when it came time to perform the “Christian” part of Christmas, children were assigned to say:

“I didn’t know there was a little boy at the manger. What child is this?
I’m not sure if there was a little boy or not.
Then why did you paint one on your nativity window?
I just thought if there was a little boy, I’d like to know exactly what he (sic) say.

Micah Clark, executive director of the Indiana AFA, launched an Internet protest once he heard about the allegations. “What surprised me here is that we’ve had a secular scrubbing of Christmas for so long and the school apparently didn’t see the problem with kids singing to Allah,” he told FOX News Radio. “You won’t even mention Jesus and you’re going to force my child to sing about Allah?

In email correspondence the school initially defended the reference as a way to be inclusive of all religions. However, once complaints starting rolling in, school leaders decided to eliminate the Allah reference.

That drew the ire of the Muslim Alliance of Indiana. “It’s unfortunate if that was removed from the program just because of Islamophobic feelings,” Shariq Siddiqui told the Indianapolis Star. “Schools are a place where we should learn more about each other rather than exclude each other based on stereotypes and misconceptions.”

But Clark said having children bow and pray is problematic for non-Muslim families. “(This show) affirmed Islam and negated Christianity. I wouldn’t have had a problem if it had been equal to all faiths.”

At least one Christian family approved of the Allah reference. “I’m a Christian and I was in no way offended by the program at Lantern Road,” said Judy Grasso to The Star.

The Muslim Alliance of Indiana is another Islamist organization like CAIR and ISNA, bent on enforcing sharia laws on the kuffar. They successfully shut down an FBI session that was to feature Jihad Watch’s Robert Spencer:

Muslim Alliance of Indiana (MAI) in partnership with ISNA and IMPACT exerted pressure on the FBI to cancel the session by Spencer and mailed a thank you/validation letter. The cancellation of the Spencer event is an important achievement for the Muslim community in Indiana.

  1. “At least one Christian family approved of the Allah reference. “I’m a Christian and I was in no way offended by the program at Lantern Road,” said Judy Grasso to The Star.”

    She then went on to say she doesn’t really agree that Jesus is the Son of God, that abortion actually kills a fetus, and that the Bible is a nice book of fairy tales. Yes.. Christian indeed.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
