Tennessee mega-mosque proselytizing in public school curriculum

via EXCLUSIVE: Murfreesboro Mega-Mosque proselytizing in public school curriculum – Atlas Shrugs.

In response to my recent article for Atlas Shrugs, which exposed the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro for making demands on the School Board to have “Muslim Authorities” review all text books, I received a lot of emails.  One of them was from a spokesman for Middle Tennesseans For Religious Freedom and peace activist, Jase Short.  He said, “You are the definition of human waste. Have a good, sad, and lonely life you fucking creep.”

I also heard from Saleh Sbenaty, the spokesperson for the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, and member of the Religion of Peace.  He had this to say, “The lies you are spreading is a characteristic of a scumbag”.

But the quote that really sticks out in my mind is one I first heard from Pamela Geller, and that one is that “Truth is the new hate speech”.

Just to review, through my new site: www.MosqueConfidential.com I have been able to obtain numerous tips, stories and actual documents concerning suspicious and subversive behavior on the part of mosques.

Recently, I released a document wherein I leaked a “Teacher’s Guide” which was put out by the Islamic Center of Murfreesbro, TN.  You can read and download the entire guide by clicking here, but here were a few of the finer points which I found particularly disconcerting:

Abdou Kattih of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro is ordering the taxpayer funded school conform to Islamic Law in the following ways:

– Men and boys are always to be covered from the navel to the knee in public.

– Muslim females are required to wear loose-fitting and non-revealing clothing which includes a head covering.

– Some of the five prayers may fall within regular school hours. It takes less than 15 minutes to accomplish the prayer. It includes:

  • Washing: Before the prayer, Muslims perform a simple wash with clean water. This is normally performed in the restroom sink.
  • Prayer space and Time: During the prayer, the Muslim will stand, bow, and touch the forehead to the ground. This may be performed in any quite, clean room. Total privacy is not required.
  • Attention: During the prayer, Muslims are fully engaged and they may not respond to a conversation. Students and teachers should not take offense of the worshiper not answering their call. However, in case of an emergency, the Muslim will respond to an announcement by stopping the prayer immediately.

– Fasting students may ask to use the library instead of the cafeteria during lunch. Also they may ask to be excused from strenuous physical activities during fasting.

– Muslim boys and girls may not take same-sex communal after-sports showers without wearing appropriate covering on their bodies.

– Close contact with local Islamic centers is essential to encourage input from the Muslim community.

– In Islam, Friday is the day for the congregational worship, called Jumaha. It is an obligation that must be fulfilled, and it lasts about one hour.

– Textbooks that contribute to religious prejudice are not suitable.

– Qualified Muslim educators should participate in the textbook selection process, particularly for history, social studies and geography texts.

I sent the leaked documents to Nashville AM radio morning talk show host, Michael DelGiorno of WTN, who felt rather strongly that this would be of interest to the parents of the 40,000 children who attend Rutherford County schools.  And to his credit, he read the entire “Teacher’s Guide” live, on the air and talked about it detail, with Bill Warner, author of “Sharia Law for Non-Muslims”.

Well as you might imagine this created quite a stir and the Rutherford County School Board was bombarded with calls and emails from some very pissed of parents who wanted answers.  And the answer they got?  The School Board denied knowing anything about it.

It’s worth mentioning that I was once a strong vocal advocate for, what I thought were simply the “religious freedoms” of the Islamic Center.  You can read more about that in, “The High Price of Telling the Truth about Islam”.  Back then, when I reached out to the media with tales of how “Southern Evangelicals” were trying to stop a mosque, the media and I had something special. They all returned my calls and emails and one of them would just write what I told him to.  Such is not the case these days.

But when it was time to leak the next document, everyone got the same package – the Daily News Journal, the Tennessean Newspaper, NPR, CNN, MSNBC, local Channel 5, Michael Moore, all of my other former contacts.  I saw “former” because now that I speak the inconvenient truth about Islam, I have become too radioactive for any of them to touch.  Must be all that “hate speech”.

So everyone got the same package with my second document – that being the actual leaked email itself – from the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.  The email was sent to School Board attorney Angel McCloud.  Notice that in the “Teacher’s Guide” the persistent Abdou Kattih references legal code, to get his point across that the School Board must conform to Islamic Law.  And of all the officials in the School Board, he sent it to legal. So, of all the officials he could have sent this to, he chose legal to impress upon them that he intended to enforce this legally if necessary.

Only 2 in the local media had the courage to expose this email, seen below.  Pete Doughtie, Publisher of the Rutherford Reader (the most read newspaper in the area of the 53,000 square foot mega mosque construction site) and once again the brave Michael DelGiorno, a Nashville talk radio host on WTN.

And here is how the James Evans, spokesperson for Rutherford County Schools, attempted to downplay and put a spin on this most recent development:

From the Rutherford County Schools Website:

 “Statement concerning student religious activities”

Update June 28, 2012

“Eric Allen Bell has responded with an email he says was sent to staff attorney Angel McCloud … from the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro. The email contained an educational flyer about Muslim beliefs and practices as they pertain to Muslim students. However, the email does not contain a list of demands or mandates, which has been alleged.”

Meanwhile, back in reality…

In order to get a better understanding of the “Teacher’s Guide” sent out by the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, I reached out to an established authority.  I contacted an expert in Islam who advises the US Government and the US Military, as I believe this expert is well qualified to explain to what it is that we are looking at, with this document.  You the reader can decide – who is more qualified to evaluate the meaning, threat and intention of this mosque sponsored “Teacher’s Guide” – a School Board spokesperson, or this man…

Timothy R. Furnish holds a PhD in Islamic, African and World history, which he obtained after serving in the US Army as an Arabic linguist.  He is a nationally and internationally recognized expert on Islamic history, Islamic sects and transnational Islamic movements.  Dr. Furnish works as a lecturer, analyst and consultant to the US government and military on those very topics.  He is the author of one book “Holiest Wars: Islamic Mahdis, their Jihads and Osama bin Laden” as well as numerous articles in both popular and scholarly venues.   Briefly, here is Dr. Furnish’s expert analysis of the ICM “Teacher’s Guide”

I think that what we have here, with Abdou Kattih’s attempt to get the Rutherford County school system to, in essence, Islamize itself, is not jihad per se but the “soft” power version of Islamization–known as da`wah.

Da`wah literally means “call,” “invitation” or “summons” to Islam (or to a particular sectarian version thereof–most prominently, in Islamic history, to the Sevener Shi`i version of that faith known as Isma’ilism).  As the august Encyclopedia of Islam  notes, da`wah “can often be translated as mission or propaganda” but also “has the sense of doctrine, religion, community, sect….”  As such, it is perhaps best viewed as a “kinder, gentler”–that is, non-“kinetic”/non-violent–version of Jihad.  

But it aims for the same goal: an Islamized society and system where, in the final analysis, Islamic norms and, eventually, rule of law (shari`ah) predominate. 

Take a look at this chart, p. 36, from a Dutch study, From Dawa to Jihad: The Various Threats from Radical Islam to the Democratic Legal Order (2004); it shows the relationship of jihad to da`wah quite well.

 What is going on in Murfreesboro is, I think, clearly an example of “Covert Dawa,” #3 in that chart: “These organizations often operate ‘with a hidden agenda and under false pretences’, with a focus on secretly propagating and financing exclusivism and parallelism. To the outside world, these…present

themselves as legitimate humanitarian organizations and discussion partners for the government, but in fact they advocate and propagate a highly intolerant exclusivism and parallelism (hidden from the government’s and the public’s view). The realization of this pursuit can be characterized as a threat, all the more so because the methods to achieve it are characterized by secrecy” (p. 39). Indeed, the Murfreesboro mosque and its propagandists may already be shading into the next level, #4, which is just one stop removed from “covert jihad:” “These forms of radical Islam try to undermine the structures of the democratic legal order via covert Dawa. At an international level there have been indications that in particular the radical branches of the Muslim Brotherhood employ covert Dawa strategies. Rather than confronting the state power with direct violence, this strategy seeks to gradually undermine it by infiltrating and eventually taking over the civil service, the judicature, schools, local administrations, et cetera” (p. 40)

It’s certainly exclusivistic and undermining of the public school system, to insist that Muslims be allowed to pray during school (as well as do their rather high-profile ablutions), to be excused from PT during Ramadan fasting, to be allowed out of school on Fridays for Muslim services.  And it’s moving beyond mere equal treatment under the law for Muslims to demand that they be allowed to vet history, social studies and geography textbooks (are maps somehow different in the Islamic view?!) and to be allowed to determine, subjectively, what defines “religious prejudice.”  One can safely assume that any historical discussion of, say, jihad – a staple of Islamic history and expansion, going back to Islam’s founder Muhammad, for 1433 years – would be deemed “prejudicial” by Abdou Kattih.  I seriously doubt that Hindus or Sikhs, much less Christians, are allowed to vet textbooks thusly.  Why should Muslims be given special treatment in this regard?

Whether Kattih and his supporters in (and outside) Murfreesboro are consciously engaged as an outpost of the Muslim Brotherhood’s “Civilization Jihadist” [sic] (Muslim Brotherhood’s “Explanatory Memorandum On the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” May 22, 1991, p. 5 of the English version) is almost beside the point–for they are certainly de facto operating as such.  

And this is what the current administration (including the intelligence and law enforcement agencies), American media and far too many in our society as a whole fail to grasp (whether intentionally or not) that the Islamic imperative to engage in da`wah, ingrained into every Muslim who seriously practices that faith, is almost reflexively acted upon UNLESS it is made abundantly clear that it will not be tolerated.  That is not to say that Muslims cannot practice their religion – of course they can. They can even try to convert folks.  BUT unless Muslims are convinced that they will not be granted a special status in non-Muslim lands, they will continue to insist on being given a mile whenever they are granted an inch.  

 Da`wah is slow-motion jihad, if you will; and the longer it is allowed to gain momentum, it will only gather more and more steam and speed–until it becomes, if not unstoppable, certainly very problematic for non-Muslims and very hard to derail.

Read it all. Read the embedded links and documents. See how Islamization is taking place right under your noses. If not for blogs, this information would never be known and you’d only hear the pity parties hosted by news media like the Tennessean.

Share it. It’s coming to your city and your kids school next.

  1. Logical-minded people with their eyes OPEN are DOOMED! We are simply OUTNUMBERED by the Leftist media, SUBVERSIVE Democrat/Liberal/Socialist/Progressive politicians, and the IGNORANT/TRUSTING/ENABLING/CO-CONSPIRING (look to Grover Norquist, not to be trusted) Republican politicians! I am a fighter, and will fight to the death to keep my country from becoming Islamized, but I feel we are DOOMED because we are OUTNUMBERED! It brings to mind The 300.

  2. Truth is the new ‘hate speech’.

    You know, as do many other counter jihad sites that since the designation of the tag ‘hate crime’ that all objectivity has disappeared from policing and more disturbingly the politics of policing.

    These attitudes are rife across an establishment spectrum which is so riddled by cultural relativists and Frankfurt School Marxists that truthful objectivity itself is now a ‘hate crime’ and that even paedophilia is given a pass, just as long as it is perpetrated by the ones chosen for immunity.

    Whilst it’s true that we in Britain have been hammered into silence by twelve years of Labour’s top down groupthink, we are not alone in Europe and it now looks like this Orwellian scourge has migrated across to Obama’s America where Christians in Dearborn can be pelted with consumer missiles and the police merely stand by and suggest that they file a complaint through the official channels.

    Whilst all of this can become heartily depressing and however tenuous our grasp on democracy has become, the sinews still remain and it looks like the collectivity of a Judeo/Christian ‘right thing’ is regaining its voice.

    The mirage of undiscerning diversity as the saviour of mankind is shattering and as Muslims, emboldened by a political lack of resistance cast off the cloak of taqiyya and that middle kingdom of dar el suhl* show their true colours so the dawning gains in strength.

    We have been lied to and whether it’s a right wing business class searching for cheap labour or a leftist entity depending on immigrant voting tendencies, their motives look less like the painted altruism put forth than a crudely daubed self interest hidden behind a skimpy kumbaya cloak.

    We’ve been here before when communist infiltrated unions held Britain by its throat and the country resembled a wasteland of constant strikes, unburied dead, rotting refuse ridden streets and the term, public service workers a complete reversal of meaning.

    The proletariat then arose from the default passivity and Thatcher gained a landslide. For once voters made their voice heard and the politicians jumped.

    That a tad more ‘jumping’ is needed right now has to be the understatement of our emergent century.

    • @Logdon. Your eloquence is quite refreshing, and historical references, spot-on. A tad bit more optimistic than my present mood allows, but a damned good read and a good analysis of where we stand at this point, as well as an indication of where we need to go with this grand journey, or struggle we are about to embark upon. Thank you for a great comment.

      It is all uphill, assholes and elbows ahead. Steel yourselves.

  3. I think the Critical FIRST Step is to clean out the White House, Judiciary, Homeland Security, and Defense Departments. replacing them with true Red Blooded non-Islamic Americans!

    Then, we can clean out the trash from the Top down to get our country back!

    It must start at the Top…

    We must unite in November and VOTE to get Step 1 taken care of.

    If we cannot do that, I agree… We are DOOMED!

    • @Joe Lyddon. Joe, we have much work ahead. I agree, a total purge of these miscreants will be necessary. If we fail to take our country back this November, the only other way to do it is by force of arms, i’m afraid. I say this with sobriety and clarity. Things have deteriorated that bad.

  4. I’m starting to feel like Custer at his last stand, but I’m not about to stop fighting for my country. We must stand together and push back harder. obozo and crew have to go every single one of them and that includes the rinos.

  6. So are they going to allow other religions to have the same rights that they are giving the Muslims? No! If it is against muslim beliefs, it is illegal in the USSA now.

  7. After working in the public school system, I had to get out because the political correctness and everyone being afraid to speak up for right because they feared their jobs….. made me want to vomit! If you were not on the same political side as administration or did not practice political correctness, they would find a reason to get rid of you. I felt like I was walking into the pits of hell everyday I went to work. Anyway, it does not surprise me that the school administration played down the seriousness of the “Teachers Guide” when ask about it. That is EXACTLY WHAT THEY DO WHEN THEY ARE GOING TO IMPLEMENT SOMETHING THAT MAYBE CONTROVERSIAL. The fewer people who knows about it, the easier it is to get passed without public opposition. Once it is implemented, and the muslims know this, the harder it is to remove. Why would they implement it? Because it is CHEAPER to implement it than to go through a lengthy, drawn out, expensive court battle for discrimination, in which our countrys school systems do not have the funds for. School systems give in on CRAP all the time to avoid lawsuits! Heck! Our county would not take parents to court for truency because they did not want to pay for court costs. We had kids that had missed 80-90 days and it was never addressed. They have attorneys on retainer but DO NOT USE THEM! Also, as is the case with most Islamic movements, the money to further their agenda is endless as most have ties back to their countries who are funneling money to them. I am sure the school attorneys have probably warned the school administration of this as well.
    It would pay ALL CITIZENS who have mosques moving in their communities to be proactive in finding out what is going to happen in the case muslims made demands on their already financially strapped school systems.Don’t ask just once, STAY ON IT. Be as persistant as a mad dog with a fresh bone! Don’t allow anything to be passed without your knowledge! If you do, muslims are like stink on a skunk….YOU CAN NEVER GET RID OF IT!

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