Taxation for Islamization. What are your children being brainwashed with in class? Source: Feds push Islam in class to stop ‘bullying’ of Muslims
The U.S. Department of Education has posted instructions to educators on its website imploring them to be aware of their responsibilities to protect Muslim students from “bullying.”
The DOE post urged teachers to “be sure to include Islam” in classroom discussions during “social studies, current events, children’s literature.”
The post is seen as so inflammatory by some Christian groups that a Change.org petition drive has been launched demanding the DOE “halt its efforts to Islamize school children.”
Virginia-based Christian Action Network announced it is collecting petitions to present to U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King Jr.
Without providing any scientific data that bullying of Muslims is a problem in public schools or defining what type of behavior it would consider to be “bullying,” the DOE post says Muslim students face more bullying than at any time since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Read the DOE blog post titled “Protecting our Muslim Youth from Bullying: The Role of the Educator” or see screenshot below.
The only source the DOE gives for its claim that bullying of Muslim students is a growing problem in schools is a December 2015 article by the Jewish Anti-Defamation League that lists 10 incidents nationwide. Of those 10, the ADL lists two assaults, three cases of vandalism of mosques and five cases of alleged “threats and intimidation.” Only one of the 10 incidents involved a student or school.
One of the “threats” listed by ADL involved “anti-Muslim” fliers posted in Fredricksburg, Virginia, in advance of a public hearing about a proposed new mosque that read, “No Jihad in Fredricksburg.”
Readers not impressed
The DOE blog post sparked nine reader comments before comments were shut down — all but one of the commenters chastised the federal bureaucracy for sticking its nose into the issue.
“Islam is not merely a religion; it is also a totalitarian, supremacist political ideology,” wrote Joanne Meegan, RN. “This kind of nonsense is one of many reasons why the U.S. Department of Education should be dismantled.”
“Why is the bullying of Muslims any more important than the bullying of other kids,” wrote another blogger named Steve.
Florine Isaacs wrote: “This is totally inappropriate for any educator to bring up in class. That is a parent’s job because it has to do with religion. You have already overstepped your role by introducing Islam into the classroom in the first place.”
Americans who ‘associate terrorism with Islam’ are ignorant
All of the alleged bullying of Muslims is based on a “lack of information among the public about Islam,” the DOE said in its post, “and a tendency to associate Islam with terrorism.”
Due to this ignorance on the part of the American public, the DOE says, “there has been an increase in expressions and incidents targeting the Muslim community …”
The post continues as follows:
“There has also been an increased wave of anti-Muslim sentiment in our public discourse, political rhetoric and everyday interactions. Schools have not been immune. Youth have been called, ‘terrorists’ or ‘ISIS.’ There have been physical attacks, verbal threats, and social isolation. These are just a few of the many ways anti-Muslim sentiment has impacted schoolchildren who are Muslim or perceived to be Muslim.”
