Muslim Influence Operations at Texas A&M San Antonio

Source: Muslim Influence Operations at Texas A&M San Antonio

by Roy White

“Influence operations” by America’s enemies use soft techniques such as strategic communications, diplomacy and public relations to accomplish a strategic goal in lieu of military force. That goal for Islamists is for Sharia law to become law for everywhere in the world.  Not necessarily today nor tomorrow but no doubt the end goal is Shariah.

A recent example of influence operations is the “clock boy” hoax of Ahmad Mohamed in Irving, TX.  A sympathetic press with quotes from ill-informed politicians, celebrities orchestrated by the Council on American Islamic Relations officials paints the desired picture of hatred and prejudice against Muslims. The resultant “back story” showing the holes in the entire story fails to make the front pages and hence unknowing Americas are duped by this type of “influence operations.”

A similar “influence operation” is occurring here in San Antonio at Texas A&M San Antonio thanks to a partnership between President Dr. Cynthia Teniente-Matson (210.784.1600, email here) and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).  On October 7th the school’s chapter of the Society of Human Relations Managers (SHRM) is hosting a two hour seminar on “Islam in the Workplace”.

This exact same presentation was originally presented this spring by the San Antonio SHRM chapter. Sarwat Husain, Executive Director for San Antonio Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), was scheduled to speak. She was removed from the speakers list when public outrage resulted in 10,000 emails to the SHRM president asking why an organization identified as supporting Islamic terrorism by Egypt, UAE and U.S. government officials would be permitted to speak to their members.

CAIR did not quit but played the “victimization card” claiming to SHRM supporters that CAIR’s removal was further evidence of “Islamophobia” and found a willing supporter of this argument in the SHRM Chapter sponsor leader at TAMU San Antonio, Dr Adrian Guardia, Dept. of Business (210.784.2332).

Members of the SHRM Board and TAMU officials failed to respond to information from the TAMU Student Body president, Allison Garcia who passed along documents from the FBI and Congress showing CAIR’s ties to known terrorist organizations.

Husain has a history of conveniently deceiving listeners. The Islamic concept of “taqiyyah’ makes this fully acceptable.  In 2009 Husain said:

“For many months, Israel has denied humanitarian aid to Gaza’s civilian population, a blockade that by itself can be regarded as an act of war under international law.… This is state-sponsored terrorism at its best.”

The facts are exactly the opposite. Israel provided these resources and much more:

  • 10,544 patients & companions left Gaza for medical treatment in Israel.
  • 382 emergency evacuations from Gaza for medical purposes.
  • 572 trucks, 5,000 tons of medical supplies entered the Strip.
  • Hadassah Medical Organization in Jerusalem donates $3 million in aid to treat Palestinians in Israel.

This quote from Husain is equally untrue as the statistics reveal. “No other country in the world have terrorized as many people for so long as Israel has for more than half a century…“

Some 11,000,000 Muslims have been violently killed since 1948, of which 35,000, or 0.3 percent, died during the sixty years of fighting Israel, or just 1 out of every 315 Muslim fatalities. In contrast, over 90 percent of the 11 million who perished were killed by fellow Muslims.

Ms. Husain and others would do harm to Islam if they were to discuss two very important Islamic concepts, “tayseer” and “darura” that employers should know. This example of a protecting Islam by using a half-truth or “kitman” is in very handy when conducting “influence operations.”

Koran 4:28 grants Muslims who live in non-Shariah compliant areas, “tayseer” or “lightening of the load” exception.  This would apply to nearly all jobs where Muslims are employed.  The second Islamic concept, “darura” or necessity is also important. If it is necessary, then what is forbidden is permitted.  If a Muslim is hungry and there is no halal (Sharia compliant) food, then he can eat any food. If a Muslim is where he cannot pray, then the prayer can be made up later.  If Sharia law has not been implemented, then a Muslim may handle pork, for example, with no consequences.

These two Islamic concepts gives Islamic justification for fighting frivolous lawsuits brought forward by Muslim employees.

The “influence operations” is complete when Human Relations managers go back to their offices and give business owners incomplete interpretation of Islamic law thus causing the employer to “submit” (Islam means submission) to the wishes of the Muslim employee.  If employers want accurate information on dealing with Islam in the workplace the last group to listen to would be CAIR, understanding “tayseer” and “durura” is far better legal advice. If you want accurate information write to and we will connect you to the honest legal and Islamic resources.

Kansas Univ. Law School Teaching Sharia


A watered-down version anyway, via Defining the Narrative

When Kansas debated and passed American Laws for American/Kansas Courts in 2012, one of the arguments against it was “It’s a solution looking for a problem”.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) used the same mantra against the Missouri Legislature this year, which narrowly failed to over-ride Governor Jay Nixon’s veto of SB267 on Wednesday according to this article at Missouri Lawyers Weekly.  (H/T Creeping Sharia)

The Kansas City, Missouri attorney Ahsan Latif has hung out his shingle specializing in Sharia Law. Little surprise here considering that just a few miles to the West at Kansas University Law School there are classes that teach Sharia to aspiring young law students.  The textbook reads like you would expect; revised history and a sanitized theological discussion, soothing the non-inquisitive mind and ignorant spirit that its just “freedom of religion” and no different than Jewish Halakhah or Catholic Canon.  Of course, the sanitized Sharia version leaves out all the gory stuff like dismemberment for thieves and pow’s, execution for apostates (o8.1; “When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.”), homosexuals (p17.1 “Kill the one who sodomizes and the one who lets it be done to him.”), wine-bibbers (p14.2-1, “Scourge whoever drinks wine…if he drinks it a fourth time kill him.”) atheists (o9.0 “The Caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim.”), and anyone of the Jewish or Christian persuasion who does not “submit” to the rule of Islam.  Sharia also obliges the Muslim adherent, male or female, to circumcision (e4.3), and despite Muslim claims to the contrary, there is no age limit for marriage of girls.  A high percentage in the Islamic world are given (for dowry) in marriage by their fathers under the age of 16, many before puberty, such as the recent case in Yemen resulting in the death of the 8 yr old child.  This is not uncommon in Sharia controlled states. But the sanitized version will treat this as an outlier, a regional or custom related practice, when in reality under sharia, the family determines the age.

Touted as mainly for use by Muslims for “family matters”, the sanitized version also leaves out the fact that a woman’s testimony is worth half the value of a man’s and she rates behind any male heirs who get the first shares of the estate right after the mosque,  and a rape victim is generally to blame for her plight and she could be shamed, outcast or worse.  It is not uncommon for rape victims to be beaten or stoned for adultery, fornication, and/or “honor killed”, under sharia as discussed in this article by Hasan Mahmud.

The Sharia that is taught at KU and is shown to the general public also whitewashes Jihad as the “inner struggle”, ignoring the fact that this one line is cherry picked from 8 pages of directives concerning the Jihad (Holy War, o9.0) “to war against non-Muslims…signifying warfare to establish the religion (Islam)…” and presents Hadith’s like Bukhari quoting Muhammad as saying, “I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat . If they say it, they have saved their blood and possession from me, except for the rights of Islam over them.”  The remaining headings under “Jihad” are titled: “The Obligatory Character of Jihad”,  “Who is Obliged to Fight in Jihad”, “The Objectives of Jihad” (“The caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians…[and] fights all other people until they become Muslim.”), “The Rules of Warfare”, “Truces”, “The Spoils of Battle”. This section on “Jihad” is immediately followed by, “Non-Muslim Subjects of the Islamic State (Dhimmi)”.  Now I ask you, does that sound like that very personal, struggle within ones own self to submit to Allah and maintain one’s faith?

One other important aspect to Sharia is that it codifies lying, or “deception”, in order to advance the cause of Islam (r8.2) and stay out of trouble with one’s wife!  Aside from the obvious advantage of keeping the wife deceived, “Taqiyya” (deception) is employed especially when Muslims are outnumbered, as a minority of a host society, in order to gain the trust and deceive the host, until a majority of Muslims can use politics, education, or force to overpower it.  Sound familiar yet?  Click here for more on Sharia.

[Shaira quotes and references from: “Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law”, by Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri, translated by Nuh Ha Mim Keller, accepted by Islamic Scholars around the world as the authoritative English translation]

You see, the objective of Islam is not to be equal, just as CAIR co-Founder Omar Ahmad stated, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.

Then there is the proposed “Blasphemy Law” that is being called for by Muslims around the world, which would make it a crime against humanity to criticize Islam.  Immediately after Barack Obama gave his infamous speech, declaring “The future does not belong to those who would slander the prophet” at the 2012 United Nations General Assembly, in the wake of the Benghazi terrorist attack (which he and Hillary Clinton blamed on an anti-Muhammad video), Muslims from around the world and closer to home made the hue and cry for freedom of speech to be made criminal.

Texas: Third-graders being taught about Islamic terrorism

via Parents concerned about terrorism worksheet given to third-graders h/t BNI

NEW BRAUNFELS — Memorial Elementary School is under fire for giving a homework assignment on terrorism to third-graders.

Concerned parents said they are concerned that terrorism is a heavy topic to be teaching children ages 8 and 9.

The worksheet assignment was sent home with students Monday. The instructions ask students to fill in the blanks using words like “Islam,” “terrorist” and “hijack.”

Parents said their children are not mature enough to understand the killings and violence associated with terrorism.

But New Braunfels ISD released a statement saying the lessons focus on how the country has persevered after the September 11th attacks. It said the assignment is in line with the Texas Education Agency standards for third-grade level students.

“NBISD feels it is important to teach the history of what happened on 9-11 and our teachers utilize different resources to share the historical significance of this tragic day. The theme of the lessons that are taught to our 3rd graders focus on how communities pull together in good times and in bad and the design structures that protect all citizens. This includes lessons on historical and contemporary figures and military and first responders who exemplify good citizenship. The unit is titled “Freedom Rings! A Commemoration of 9-11, Freedom Week and Constitution Day” and is aligned with 3rd grade TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills).”

Grandparent Sharon Grimm said she encourages the lessons, calling it a necessity to teach students.

“These are the things that are happening. They’re seeing it on TV. They’re hearing it,” she said. “It’s all part of learning and growing up (and) understanding we’re not in a perfect world.”

New Braunfels ISD said parents can view the curriculum standards on its website and the TEA’s website.

Georgia: Islam quiz has Walton County parents ‘outraged’

Source: Islam quiz has U.S. parents ‘outraged’ via Leo Hohmann

Above is an excerpt from a quiz given to students in Walton County, Georgia.


Hundreds of irate parents are planning to attend the Walton County, Georgia, school board meeting Oct. 10 to convey their outrage over their children being taught the religious beliefs of Islam in middle-school social studies.

The outrage erupted over a quiz handed out to students asking them to answer questions related to the five pillars of Islam, the Quran as the “holy” book of Muslims, and the conversion prayer known as the “shahada,” which states, “There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger.” Perhaps most disturbing to Christian parents was the “correct” answer that the Muslim god Allah is the “same god” that is worshiped by Christians and Jews.

At the same time Islam is being studied in detail, the beliefs of Christianity are glossed over, parents say. They now have more than 2,300 parents and concerned citizens who have joined a Facebook group dedicated to opposing the school system’s methods of teaching comparative religions.

“I believe my children are my responsibility, and I believe I need to be the one teaching them what we believe instead of the school,” Bill Green told News 95.5.

Parent Michelle King told WSB-TV she’s upset because students seem to spend a lot more time learning about Islam than any other religion.

“My daughter had to learn the (shahada), and the five pillars of Islam, which is what you learn to convert,” King said. “But they never once learned anything about the Ten Commandments or anything about God.”

“What they are learning goes against my religion completely,” she said.

Kim Embry, spokeswoman for the Walton County School District, said in an interview with Fox 5 that some Christian students may need to learn more about Islam than Christianity since they’re already familiar with the Christian faith.

Ryan Breece launched the Facebook page in an attempt to get school officials to alert parents to upcoming lessons on religion or other sensitive topics. They say that would give them a chance to opt their children out of assignments with which they disagree.

Breece said he pulled his sixth-grade daughter out of recent lessons on Islam, and her grade suffered as a result. He doesn’t think that’s right.

“We need to see the assignments, and we need to be able to opt out without any grade negativity on our children,” he told News 95.5, adding that he expects hundreds of parents to attend the Oct. 10 board meeting with similar demands.

Breece said Tuesday he has been invited to a private meeting with the school board Wednesday at 9:15 a.m.

“Fox News will be there,” he wrote on the group’s Facebook page. “Please come and gather in the parking lot or lobby to show your support. Now it’s time for us to show we all care about this issue.”

The Board of Education building is at 200 Double Springs Church Road, Monroe, Georgia.

The education standards being used in Walton County are the same standards used in all of Georgia and there have been complaints in the past. Last year, parents from Cartersville Middle School in Cartersville, Georgia, contacted WND and said their school was inviting Islamic teachers to come and indoctrinate their children about the tenants of Islam.

The latest controversy was touched off when Youth Middle School gave a fill-in-the-blank test on the basics of Islam as one of several examples of controversial lessons (correct answers in parenthesis):

  • “In 610, Muhammad was told by the angel (Gabriel) that he was a (prophet) sent to Earth by (God)
  • “He began preaching a new monotheistic faith called (Islam) – (Surrender) to God”
  • “Basic beliefs of Islam:
  • “Followers of Islam are called (Muslims) who believe in (one) God, called (Allah)
  • “Allah is the (same God) worshiped by Jews & Christians
  • “Muslims believe Muhammad was the (last) of God’s prophets
  • “The teachings of Muhammad were written down in the (Quran) …, the holy (book) of Islam.”

Other assignments delved into the five pillars of Islam – pilgrimage to Mecca, giving of alms, fasting and prayer five times a day, along with the associated Arabic words and phrases.

Arabic is the fastest-growing language in U.S. public schools, likely due to the 70,000 foreign refugees, the majority of them Muslim, who are being resettled annually by the Obama administration in cities and towns across the U.S.

Just latest in long line of complaints by parents

This type of parental uproar over Islamic teachings in public schools has become endemic across the U.S. in recent years, with complaints by parents popping up in school districts nationwide since 2011.

Christina Michas, founder of Operation Jericho Project and co-founder of Citizens United for Responsible Education, has been tracking the encroachment of Islam into public schools for several years, and she says it’s obvious that atheist groups are not nearly as concerned about Islam in the schools as they are about Christianity.

“It’s everywhere,” she said, noting that a teacher in Texas who gave students a more accurate history of Islam got fired. She was referring to the case of Dale Wolverton in Richmond, Texas.

Wolverton was forced to resign on April 8 when the Hamas-supporting Council for American-Islamic Relations filed a complaint against him for handing out brochures detailing the bloody history of Islam, ABC News reported.

Tennessee pastor Greg Locke in Mt. Juliet recently encouraged students to “take an F” on their test about the Islamic religion over what he described as “absolute brainwashing of religion,” EAGnews reported.

Locke pointed out in a viral video that local history books include about 28 pages on Islam, but only “a half-page of watered down Christianity,” according to the Tennessean.

Dozens of teachers and administrators in Pennsylvania’s Lebanon School District attended a taxpayer-funded workshop at a local mosque to learn about Islam, EAG News reported in June.

About 50 staffers from the district attended the workshop led by former district Arabic translator Mohamed Omar, who “took time off from his new job as a case worker for the Department of Human Services in Philadelphia to share his knowledge of Islam with the staff, which included Superintendent Marianne Bartley and several other administrators,” the Lebanon Daily News reports.

Afterward, they headed to the nearby Lebanon Valley Mosque to join an Islamic prayer service with the congregation, according to the Daily News.

This is the second year the school district has held the mosque workshop.

“There was no mention of objections or threatening letters sent to the school district by atheist groups that typically scream foul with religious-themed school events,” EAG News reported.

Massachusetts: Saudi national arrested, terrorized 15-year old girl for sex

Likely a Muslim student visa scofflaw – with other victims. via Saudi national allegedly used lewd pictures to blackmail Danvers teenager – The Boston Globe

A Saudi national who attended college in Indiana is facing charges that he posed as a female online to obtain nude photos of a Danvers teenager and later threatened to distribute the pictures unless the girl agreed to have sex with him, officials said.

Abdulrahim Altalhi, 20, was indicted Wednesday on charges including attempted extortion, enticement, electronic enticement for prostitution, and posing a child in a state of nudity, according to Essex District Attorney Jonathan W. Blodgett’s office.

His Superior Court arraignment has not been scheduled, and he remains held on $750,000 bail. He pleaded not guilty earlier this month in Salem District Court.

According to authorities, Altalhi contacted the alleged victim online in January and persuaded the 15-year-old girl to send him nude photos. He allegedly used the pictures in an effort to blackmail “the victim to agree to have sex with a man, later identified as the defendant,” said a spokeswoman for Blodgett.

The girl’s family contacted police, and Altalhi was arrested before any sexual acts occurred, authorities said.

His lawyer, John Salsberg, said Altalhi was traveling back to school when he was taken into custody at a Chicago airport. The date of his arrest was unclear Friday.

Salsberg declined to discuss the allegations, except to say that Altalhi will plead not guilty in Superior Court.

Officials identified Altalhi as a student at the University of Evansville in Indiana, but a school spokesman said he did not enroll this semester.

Salsberg said Altalhi attended the university on a scholarship and comes from a “modest background” in Saudi Arabia.

“His parents were just here this last week,” Salsberg said. “He has their full support and love.”

Danvers police referred questions to Blodgett’s office.

 DANVERS, Mass. —A Danvers teenager was blackmailed into sending nude photos and videos of herself, leading to the arrest of a Saudi Arabian national, police said.
Police said Abdulrahim Altalhi, who was posing as a teenager from London, convinced the 15-year-old Danvers girl to send pictures and videos online.
He then threatened to send the pictures to friends and family if she didn’t send more, police said.According to court documents, he told the teen, “Don’t say anything you will regret.”

Police said they were able to use Facebook to track him down.

The teen went to police after he followed through with one of the threats, and sent pictures to her sister, police said.

That’s when the girl and her father went to police.

Altahli is now in jail and has been indicted by a grand jury on several charges.

New York: Ithaca School Teaches Third Graders to be “Freedom Fighters for Palestine”

Do you know who is visiting your children’s classroom today? It may just be a Muslim terrorist or relative thereof.

via PJ Tatler

Bassem Tamimi, father of the infamous Pallywood star “Shirley Temper,” was invited to speak to a classroom of third graders in Ithaca, New York. Legal Insurrection broke the story:

An uproar is brewing in Ithaca, New York, after anti-Israel activists bragged on Facebook how they managed to bring Palestinian activist Bassem Tamimi to a third-grade class as part of a presentation on the suffering of Palestinian children at the hands of Israel.

According to the activists, the event took place on Friday morning, September 18, 2015 at the Beverly J. Martin Elementary School.

…Tamimi’s connection to Ithaca runs through Ariel Gold, an anti-Israel activist who used to work as a community organizer for the anti-Israel Sabeel Int’l – North America. Gold now self-describes her occupation as a Community Activist “delegitimizing zionism.” Like Tamimi, Gold involves her children (ages 12 and 14) in her anti-Israel activism, promoting them through radio and speaking appearances, as well as Facebook and videos.

Reporting on the event, Gold posted a series of pictures with captions about Tamimi speaking of “Palestinian human rights” and the “occupation” on her Facebook page.

When Legal Insurrection contacted the school for comment, a politically correct statement regarding a human rights-infused curriculum was issued. The Blaze pushed the subject with Ithaca City School District Superintendent Luvelle Brown, who responded, in part:

Brown said that it was his understanding that the suffering of Jewish children was not discussed with the third grade children; nor was the issue of Tamimi’s relative Ahlam Tamimi raised. Ahlam Tamimi was an accomplice to a 2001 suicide bombing in Jerusalem that killed 15, including 7 children and a pregnant woman. Nor were the children told that Israel’s security barrier (which Palestinian activists usually call a “wall”) was erected in order to keep suicide bombers out of Israel and that since then suicide attacks have virtually ended, saving scores of children’s lives.

Asked if any pro-Israel voices were invited to the classroom, Brown said, “No other speakers have been into this classroom to talk about human rights at this time.”

More via Ithaca-based Legal Insurrection:

Tamimi before the third graders at the Beverly J. Martin Elementary School accompanied by Gold’s 12-year old daughter (who does not attend the school) and Mary Anne Grades Flores, a local environmental and political activist.

How precisely access to the elementary school students was arranged is not presently known, as Ithaca school officials have not yet responded to my emails seeking such information (see email later in post).

The appearance before the third graders was, according to the descriptions posted by Gold and Flores, overtly political in purpose and content.

Gold posted the Featured Image on Facebook (with her daughter’s face showing, though we blurred it) with the following text:

“Bassem Tamimi speaking about the Palestinian struggle for human rights to the third grade class at Beverly J. Martin Elementary School.”

Gold also posted a photo of Tamimi with Gold’s daughter outside the school, with this description (name redacted by me) :

“Bassem Tamimi and [________] Gold about to speak to the third grade class at Beverly J. Martin Elementary school about human rights.”

Flores posted the same class photo of the presentation (Featured Image) with the description:

“This am, at our local BJM School, 3rd grade classes listened and spoke about Human Rights for children in Palestine with Bassem Tamimi, father of 4 children, from Nabi Saleh, who’s village land has been stolen by Israeli settlers.”

In a comment to that same post, Flores wrote:

“It was amazing how clear the children were about human rights. Bassem was so gentle with them.”

[Bassem Tamimi and Mary Anne Grady Flores with students at Beverly J. Martin Elementary School]

[Bassem Tamimi and Mary Anne Grady Flores at Beverly J. Martin Elementary School][Image via Ariel Gold Facebook]

Flores further posted an image of Tamimi in the class holding a poster (name redacted by me):

“Holding the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, Bassem Tamimi, father of 4, of Palestine and 12 yr old Ithacan [________] Gold spoke to BJM 3rd graders about Palestinian children struggling living under Israeli occupation. I am a witness to the gentle way the discussion happened and I am a witness to what is happening in Palestine. Denial of Human Rights by Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and Gaza.”

Flores also described how Gold’s daughter told a story to the children (name redacted by me):

“What an honor to be with the 3rd grade at BJM with Bassem Tamimi, Ms Burnett, [________] Gold, and her mom, Ariel. Thank you [__________] for reading that wonderful story from a Palestinian child’s dreams, speaking with his mom, about what life could be like without the occupation wall. You were wonderful.”

There are a lot of unanswered questions here.

For example, why was this class in this school chosen? Gold’s daughter doesn’t even attend the school. Why the third grade class when the third-grade curriculum (to the extent available online) does not appear to include the highly contentious Israeli-Palestinian dispute.

If the human rights of children was the theme, was Tamimi’s own media exploitation explained to the children? And was the suffering of Israeli (Jewish and non-Jewish) children explored?

For example, Tamimi’s relative, Ahlam Tamimi, escorted a suicide bomber in 2001 during the Second Intifada to the Sbarro Pizza restaurant in Jerusalem, resulting in death and injury to numerous children:

Were those children discussed?

Or was this video shown of Ahlam Tamimi expressing her pleasure, years later, with the damage she caused?

Ahlam Tamimi was released along with hundreds of other terrorists in the exchange for kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit, and now resides in Jordan. Ahlam is celebrated as a Palestinian hero for killing Israeli children:

Before Tamimi took her life, 15-year-old Malka Chana Roth was a volunteer at a youth camp organised by Etgarim, the Israeli Outdoor and Recreation Association for the Disabled. Her parents have since established a charity in her memory. helps young disabled kids stay at home, by providing specialist equipment and therapeutic services. And one in three of the beneficiaries are Israeli Arabs.

In sharp contrast, students at An-Najah University, unbelievably, recreated the atrocity at in a macabre exhibition to mark the first anniversary of the Palestinian intifada. According to a BBC report, ‘The room-sized installation had broken tables splattered with fake blood and body parts. A university branch of the militant Palestinian group Hamas built the exhibit, which recreates the scene of last month’s attack on Sbarro Pizza house in Jerusalem.’

Was that discussed with the third graders?

Was Bassem Tamimi asked the question framed by the parents of one of the victims of the Sbarro massacre, who note that Ahlam was not the only one from Nabi Saleh to murder Israelis:

“Bassem Tamimi, tell us in simple words: are you as delighted by your cousin Ahlam Tamimi’s massacre of Jewish children as she is? Have you criticized it ever, anywhere? Will you condemn it here and now?”

When Gold’s daughter explained to the third graders how the security barrier allegedly makes Palestinian children suffer, did the school teachers present explain that the barrier was built only after the Sbarro suicide bombing and similar attacks caused several hundred Israeli civilian deaths?

The Israeli operation and initial construction of the security fence resulted in a sharp decrease in the number of suicide attacks carried out by Palestinian terrorist organizations: in 2002 there were 60 suicide attacks, while in 2003 this number decreased by more than 50% to 26 suicide attacks. There was also a considerable decrease in the number of fatalities: from 452 Israelis killed in 2002 to 214 Israelis killed in 2003.

The barrier may inconvenience children, but it also has saved the lives of hundreds if not thousands of children.

Was this a legitimate, balanced educational endeavor, or a propaganda event meant to turn young children against Israel? And if the latter, what was it doing in a public school before children too young to balance the information presented on their own?

Rhetorical questions. Read it all.
