Taxation for Islamization in Montana. Where else in the U.S. are imported, devout Muslims indoctrinating our kids under the guise of Arabic language skills? via Missoula teacher seeks to dispel Muslim myths | NewsOK.com.
As a young man, Wael Salah Elkhateeb pummeled opponents with his fists as a boxer for the Egyptian national team.
An English teacher from Cairo, he comes to Missoula via the U.S. State Department’s Teachers of Critical Languages Program, which places Arabic and Chinese teachers in the United States for one-year assignments. The Missoula County Public Schools district was accepted into the program, which will help get its Arabic studies classes off the ground.
For the next year, Elkhateeb will teach the Arabic language, culture and traditions to Missoula students at Hellgate and anywhere else he is asked to visit.
A devout Muslim and “ambassador for my culture,” his message is simple: Ignorance of another culture leads to misunderstanding and even hatred, and that works both ways across the Arabic-Western divide.
Many in the West, especially in the United States, think of Arabic culture only in terms of what they see on TV or the movies, or what they see on the news.
“Politics is the main thing that keeps people apart,” said Elhkateeb, who left behind his wife and 3-year-old twins for the 11-month ambassadorship.
In Egypt and elsewhere, people are people. The Arabic world has all the diversity of viewpoints and ideologies that America does, he said.
“America believes in the diversity of herself,” he said. “And America should believe in the diversity of the Arabic world.”
The Muslim religion is gravely misunderstood, even despised, by people who don’t bother to understand it, he said.
“I think they don’t know we have the spirit of tolerance, the spirit of respecting other people,” he said. “We are very generous, very giving.”
And the goal is for Americans to understand the Arabic and Islamic world, and for that world to understand America and the West.
Another one of the things that he’s learned after only a few days in Montana is that we Montanans like to take things slowly much more slowly than things happen in Cairo, population 14 million.
“Sometimes I have to say, ‘OK, just take a deep breath, and let it out slowly,’ ” said Michal Malouf, a Hellgate Spanish teacher who is serving as Elkhateeb’s mentor.
Elkhateeb smiled. Yes, it’s true, he can be a bit passionate and talkative, especially when it comes to Arab-American relations.
While in Missoula, Elkhateeb will meet with any interested groups, giving talks about his role as teacher and ambassador, spreading the culture of the Arab world to foster understanding and, ultimately, peace.
It is what his Muslim faith, after all, commands him to do.
It sure does, it’s called dawah. And the goal is to spread Islam and sharia law until Allah alone is worshiped.
Islam commands Muslims to do a lot of things, most of which the devout Muslims being imported at taxpayer expense by the State Department will never tell your kids about.
Stealth jihad on your dime. Indoctrination.
PS: Elkhateeb is from Egypt – home of the Muslim Brotherhood. Recall the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic goal in North America, “a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
