Taxpayers stock Michigan libraries with Muslim books and videos


Taxation for Islamization. via Michigan libraries receiving Muslim collection | Michigan Radio.

DETROIT (AP) – Nearly fifty Michigan libraries and its state humanities council are receiving a collection of books, films and other resources about Muslims in the United States and around the world.

The Muslim Journeys Bookshelf collection was developed by the National Endowment for the Humanities and American Library Association. Each library will receive 25 books, three films and a year of access to Oxford Islamic Studies Online.

Officials say the program aims to introduce the broader U.S. public to the “complex history and culture of Muslims” through “trustworthy and accessible resources.”

The collection has been awarded to 842 libraries and institutions nationwide.

Detroit Democratic U.S. Rep. John Conyers said in a release Thursday that he “applauded the National Endowment for the Humanities for fostering cross-cultural discussions.”

“It is appalling to me that a federal agency like the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is wasting taxpayer money on programs like this,” US Rep. Walter Jones told Havelok News.

“It makes zero sense for the US government to borrow money from China in order to promote the culture of Islamic civilizations.”

The “Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys” was developed by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and American Library Association.

The grant would be given to around 50 Michigan libraries and its state humanities council.

Each library will receive 25 books, three films and a year of access to Oxford Islamic Studies Online.

Book titles include: “The Butterfly Mosque: A Young American Woman’s Journey to Love and Islam,” “The Story of the Qur’an,” “Muhammad,” and “A Quiet Revolution: The Veil’s Resurgence, from the Middle East to America.”

The NEH says it wants to provide resources “to enhance libraries’ collections and their capacity to engage audiences” in an attempt to give the public trustworthy resources about Muslim beliefs and practices.

Taking a stand against the federal grant, Jones urged Craven Community College to reject the books.

Though there are no official estimates, the US is home to an estimated Muslim minority of six to eight million.

A Gallup poll found in August 2011 that the majority of Americans Muslims are loyal to their country and optimistic about their future in the United States.

Terror-linked CAIR claims six to eight million. Gallup and others say there are two to three million.

Surveys have also found that Muslims in the U.S. are in favor of sharia and some in favor of the death penalty for blasphemy.

Despite controversy surrounding the grant, officials at Craven Community College welcomed the new books for offering information about US Muslims from a trusted source.

“An institute of higher learning is always looking for ways to navigate a global society,” Craven County Board of Trustees Chairwoman Carol Mattocks said.

Commenting on Jones’ concerns, Mattocks said she has not received the letter from Jones’ office, but is aware it is coming.

“I would like to see the letter and give it due consideration,” she said.

Judy Eurich, director of marketing, communications and development liaison at Craven College said the college had community support from the New Bern-Craven County Public Library, Carteret County Public Library and Interfaith Refugee Ministry.

She added there was no monetary funding involved from the college, explaining that the college will get the 25 books, a DVD series of short videos about Islamic art and architecture, two films and a one-year subscription to Oxford Islamic Studies online.

“This fits in the mission of the college of improving and enhancing the lives of individuals and communities by providing opportunities to prepare students for a global society,” she said.

Nothing a little creative rearranging in the library can’t resolve. What did MLK Jr. call it, civil disobedience?

  2. I think her last line says it all, This fits in the mission of the College of improving and enhancing the lives of individuals and communities by providing opportunities to prepare students for a global society. When is it the mission of the Collages to prepare students for a Global Society? Talk about brain washing, this is it.

    • She is all about bridging the gap between cultures. Wait until they openly practice Sharia and she is dragged into an alley for a bit of “fun” by a mob of Muslims who will show her how they feel about women.

      I read somewhere it said” the bridge between Islam is not to spread understanding and tolerance between the faiths, rather it is so that others may cross over to Islam”

      When is the last time anyone in America dragged a dead body behind a motorcycle through the streets?

      • Like this? Admittedly, it was a pickup truck and not a motorcycle, but who’s quibbling.

        Third Defendant Is Convicted In Dragging Death in Texas

        A Texas jury found a man guilty of capital murder today but spared him from execution for helping drag a black man to death in one of the grisliest racial killings in recent American history.

        Add to that the hundreds of blacks who were strung up, tied to trees, beaten to death, you name it, by whites in the USA. It never stopped, it still rises from beneath every once in a while.

        And of course what whites did to the Native Americans in AMERICA.

        Oh, and check out the mostly white Christian doctrine of “Manifest Destiny”, which brought about the slaughter of non-Christian human beings all across the globe including within America.
        No, really, go look it up.

        And then perhaps you can stop pointing fingers at others, saying “when was the last time anyone in America, blah blah, blah..

        • Notice that American Jury convicted the guy in the pick up which would unlikely happen in the Mideast. As for the rest of your statement, while there is some truth to it Manifest Destiny had nothing to do with the rest of the Globe, is was the idea that America was destined to expand across the continent to the Pacific. This did lead to the mistreatment and killing of American Indians, but there was nothing Christian about it. Either way, most of this is ancient history and most modern people would not consider doing such thing, but in the Mideast the are still doing such things to nonbelievers so to compare the two is ridiculous..

  3. Of course the library will be forced to build a new top shelf for the new books (all infidel writings below). The new stuff will even have their own catagory – RPP – Rape Pillage Plunder. Is RPP a bit too strong? Click on any link on this webpage – there it is – RPP.
    Keep up the great work CS.

  4. one state at a time is their jihad terrorist plan and since Mi has been overrun with camel jockeys other states should take heed and pay attention to all ideas from muslims to infiltrate the minds of children through textbooks, etc. obama appointed muslin to overlook textbook content so guess what is being omitted, American history, replaced by islam; what a crock of poop.

  5. our government should stop immediately ALL US monies going to any terrorist country and there are many. They hate us, so why are we sending them our taxpayer dollars???? that should help reduce some of our debt. also reduce obama’s staff from 400 plus to 20; that should be more than enough to keep him in teleprompters.

  6. check out the books and make sure to write in them where they lie and show the reference of their untruths in sharia and/or koran.

  7. I just want to know when the U.S. will send materials to libraries in the Middle East to explain the culture of our Christian nation, the religion of Christians and Jews living here, and our laws based on the Ten Commandments? And will these materials be accepted?

    • Americans need to start concerning themselves with what is going on right here in America. This is where we are losing all the battles…and our liberties.

    • I believe that Iran is planning to hang that Christian Preacher over there. I don’t think I would like to see what they would do to you, if you tried to put a Christian Bible in one of their Libraries, let alone be caught carrying one. All you have to do is see how the Muslims are treating Christians around the world to see the answer to your question.

  8. Reblogged this on WindsorCOAct!forAmerica and commented:
    Sad thing is that Pres. Obama is trying to make the US an Islamic country, in helping his handlers, the Muslim Brotherhood, and I think (this is my feelings, and not that of local Act chapters, or the National office) that is America falls, the first to go will be Michigan. Look at it, there are a lot of cities that are Islamic infiltrated, and they are allowed to act the way they do without a criminal backlash.

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