Army chaplains to remove ‘conquer’ from 102-year-old motto after hiring an imam

An imam who, like others, falsely equated the motto with the Crusades, because defending civilizations against Muslim jihadists is just plain offensive. via Army chaplains to remove ‘conquer’ from 102-year-old motto because it is offensive to Muslims | DailyTelegraph h/t Islamist Watch

THE Australian Army is removing the motto “In this sign conquer” from the 102-year-old hat badges of army chaplains because it is offensive to Muslims.

The move comes after an imam approved by the Grand Mufti was appointed to join the ­Religious Advisory Committee to the Services in June.

Australian Army chaplains have had the motto on their hat badges since 1913.

A Defence spokeswoman last night denied the motto was being changed because it was associated with the Crusades, when Christian armies fought Muslims in the Holy Land during the Middle Ages.

“The motto of the Australian Army Chaplains is being changed to better reflect the diversity of religion throughout the Australian Army,” she said.

“The new wording on the Australian Army Chaplaincy badge is under consideration and no decision has been made at this time.”

Former army major Bernard Gaynor, whose commission was terminated last year due to his outspoken views, said: “This is political correctness destroying our military heritage.”

Mr Gaynor, who is standing as the Australian Liberty Alliance senate candidate for Queensland, said political correctness in the military was highlighted by the appointment of an imam.

“The government must stop the political correctness. It must dismiss the Defence Imam for his views. And it must put Australia first,” he said.

Military historian Professor Peter Stanley from UNSW Canberra said: “The motto was acceptable 100 years ago but today has crusader connotations.”

Despite the perceived crusader links, he said the motto actually comes from Emperor Constantine’s vision before he won the battle of Milviian Bridge in 312AD and converted to Christianity: “Jewish chaplains already have a separate badge with a Star of David, so Muslim chaplains would not be expected to wear the current badge. They would have one with a crescent.”

The army imam, Sheik Mohamadu Nawas Saleem, has previously called for sharia law to be introduced into Australia. He signed a petition supporting radical Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir, which has argued in favour of honour killings and said Muslim students should not be forced to honour Anzac Day.

Sheik Saleem works about 40 days a year for the Army and is paid $717 for each one: almost $30,000 a year.

Islam eradicates cultures and history.



Utah: Teacher Makes 9th Graders Draw Propaganda Posters for ISIS

An in-class assignment that apparently some kids completed, drawing Islamic State terrorist flags and the words “Join ISIS.”

A Utah school is apologizing after a ninth grade teacher assigned students to draw a propaganda poster for ISIS.

The teacher, who’s been on the job for just a few months, gave the in-class assignment to students in her two World Civics classes at Salem Junior High School in Salem, Utah, on Wednesday. About 60 students received the assignment, which required them to create a “neat, colored, professional” poster for the terrorist group, to “help students better understand the goals of terrorist groups and the methods they use to gain support,” the assignment read.

The teacher included a note asking students to come forward if they felt uncomfortable with the assignment. None did, Lana Hiskey, a spokeswoman for the Nebo School District where the school is located, told ABC News.

But some parents did not think the assignment was appropriate, especially after six coordinated terrorist attacks last week in Paris have left 130 dead.

“We shouldn’t be talking about how ISIS recruits, we should be discussing the events of what they have caused to figure a way of how to deter that and how to help better the world,” Annie Langston, whose daughter received the assignment, told ABC News. “I thought this isn’t right, not right now.”

The possibility of having to search for ISIS recruiting material on the web at a time when officials are looking to detect potential threats was alarming, Langston said.

The assignment had not been approved by school administrators, Hiskey said, adding that teachers at the school meet each week to discuss best practices.

“That never happened with this one,” said Hiskey.

Four parents contacted the school on Thursday to express their concern.

“As soon as the administration heard of this and reviewed the material, they immediately removed the assignment,” Hiskey said.

The school contacted the parents of all students in both classes and notified the students that they were not required to complete the assignment, Hiskey said. The teacher said she is sorry about the assignment, according to Hiskey. She is still teaching at the high school.

“She did this innocently, she’s a naive young teacher,” Hiskey said. “She wants to do the right thing.”

Naive and young yet she knows about ISIS and propaganda. Got it. If she said something bad about Islam she’d be fired. It’s time to fire teachers who push Islamic propaganda on unsuspecting children. 

There are only three female history teachers listed on the school’s website. Which one is young and naive?

Video: Politically Correct Jihad

Only a day after the November 13 jihad attacks in Paris we see the usual politically correct responses. Ironically Obama and Kerry had pronounced Islamic State “contained” and its “days are numbered” earlier in the day.

Merkel of Germany says that the proper response to jihad is tolerance and European values.

The politicians do not use the word jihad, but terror and terror networks.

The left of center press says that the rhetoric of the right causes terror and that poor Muslims will suffer from being associated with terror. They should be worried about being associated with jihad.

The professors still teach Islam without jihad. The press will not offend Muslims. Police do not study the doctrine of jihad. Politicians cry out for more Muslim refugees.

We are losing a civilizational war because of political correctness.

Maryland School district submits to sharia, will close schools on Islamic holiday

The day in question falls on a Sunday in 2016. That date is September the 11th. So now in America, public schools will close for Muslim holidays but not for the day Muslims attacked and killed nearly 3,000 Americans.

via Montgomery Co. schools to close for Muslim holiday – WTOP

WASHINGTON — After years of debate, the Montgomery County Public School system has decided to accommodate families who celebrate the Muslim holiday Eid al-Adha by closing school for students on Sept. 12 of 2016.

The day could still be used as an in-service day for teachers — but those details have yet to be worked out.

The move came after school board member Christopher Barclay suggested the calendar change.

“We are putting ourselves in a place that we give lip service to the diversity that we have in this incredible community that we live in and serve — but in fact, the most important things are the actions that we take,” Barclay told his colleagues.

 Interim School Superintendent Larry Bowers had originally suggested studying the question of scheduling professional and in-service days for teachers and how to accommodate the Muslim holiday further, but Barclay said, “I think we have an opportunity right here, right now.”

Montgomery County School Board President Patricia O’Neil was reluctant to make the change in the 2016 calendar, saying the Maryland State Board of Education calendar designated Sept. 11 — a Sunday — as Eid al-Adha, and that shifting other days in the school calendar could result in extending the end of the school year to a Monday.

“I’m not willing to do that,”  she said.

California school district enforces sharia, bans drawings of Muhammad, keeps Islamic indoctrination

To not offend Muslims, students are forbidden from drawing figures that represent their own religions. Yet, they are still forced to endure Islamic indoctrination. This is the epitome of dhimmitude, intolerance and Islamophobia. Students and parents are witnessing the rise of Islam and the demise of Western civilization in real-time.

via School district bans drawings of religious leaders after Acton students draw Muhammad

An Acton school district superintendent said Wednesday he has banned depicting religious leaders after middle school students drew images on a history worksheet of Muhammad, which is forbidden in Islam.

Following a parent’s complaint and media inquiries, Acton-Agua Dulce Unified School District Superintendent Brent Woodard told a reporter Tuesday he would consult with an expert on Islam to determine whether a vocabulary handout given to a 7th-grade history class at High Desert School in Acton was offensive. The worksheet, Vocabulary Pictures: The Rise of Islam, listed words such as Quran, Mecca, Bedouins and Muhammad with spaces for students to draw pictures or images related to those words.

“I have directed all staff to permanently suspend the practice of drawing or depiction of any religious leader,” Woodard said Wednesday afternoon in a text message. “I am certain this teacher did not intend to offend anyone and in fact was simply teaching respect and tolerance for all cultures.”

Palmdale resident Melinda Van Stone said she was “very upset” when her 12-year-old son brought home the assignment about two weeks ago.

“It’s not appropriate to have our children go to school and learn how to insult a religious group,” said Van Stone, a chiropractor who declined to state her or her son’s religion.

Van Stone said the principal and district officials told her that the worksheet came from state-approved curriculum. But on Tuesday, High Desert School Principal Lynn David said the vocabulary worksheet is not a part of a textbook or other state-approved curriculum but is supplemental material.

The principal, who joined the school in July, said she did not know if the teacher had created the worksheet himself or from where he had it gotten it.

The boy has been sent to the office and is given an alternative assignment during class discussions on Islam, which Van Stone agreed to but now feels is unnecessary. Van Stone said David told her that she needs to write down which state standards she objects to before the boy can be back in class full time. The mother, who said her son has been sent to the office about six times, said she feels like he is being punished for her complaints.

In Islam, images of prophets, whether of Muhammad, Jesus or Moses, are not allowed since people may worship these images, which is forbidden, said Muzammil Siddiqi, an Islamic scholar and chairman of the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California.

DHS Secretary, Counterterrorism Chief Didn’t Say ‘Islamic Terrorism’ Once During Congressional Testimony

via DHS Secretary, Counterterrorism Chief Didn’t Say ‘Islamic Terrorism’ Once During Congressional Testimony

The words “Islam”, “Islamic”, or “Muslim” were not used even once by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson or Nicholas Rasmussen, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, while they were testifying before Congress last week on terrorist threats to the nation.

During the full House Homeland Security Committee hearing October 21 on “Worldwide Threats and Homeland Security Challenges”, Rasmussen referred to Islamic terrorists 32 times – but by other names.

Terms he used to refer to Islamic terrorists included: “terrorists,” “terrorist groups,””terrorist actors,” “ISIL-inspired terrorists,” “terrorist organizations,” “foreign terrorist fighters,” “foreign fighters,” “violent extremists,” “extremists,” “extremist terrorist actors,” “violent extremist actors,” and “extremist actors.”

Johnson likewise referred to Islamic terrorists 21 times using other terms such as “violent extremism” to describe the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) also known as ISIS, and Al Qaeda, two Muslim groups that use their religion to justify bloody attacks on Christians and Westerners.

“Given the nature of the evolving terrorist threat, countering violent extremism in this country is as important as any of our other key missions. Building trusted partnerships with diverse communities is essential to successfully countering violent extremism and curbing threats to the safety of our country,” Johnson said.

“While the scale of the capabilities of these violent extremist actors does not rise to the level that core al Qa’ida had at its disposal at the time of 9/11, it is fair to say that we face more threats originating in more places and involving more individuals than we have at any time in the last 14 years,” Rasmussen told the committee.

Johnson referred to “right-wing extremism” and “domestic terrorism,” in both his verbal and written testimony while discussing internal terrorist threats. He did not specifically mention “Islamic terrorists” even though a video purportedly released by ISIS last year specifically threatened the U.S.: “I say to America that the Islamic Caliphate has been established… And God willing, we will raise our flag in the White House.”
