Joseph Scaffido, Assistant Dean at Cornell University, is captured on hidden camera advising a Project Veritas investigative journalist on how to start and fund a pro-ISIS club on campus, how to obtain funding to send care packages to ISIS and Hamas, and astonishingly, how to bring a member of ISIS to Cornell to run a “training camp.”
How long until Mr. Joe claims he didn’t know what Islamic State nor Hamas are? h/t Dee

“Combating Islamophobia” is the latest way for Muslims to sneak into public schools as liberals knowingly allow terror-linked groups to spread a vile ideology to unsuspecting students held captive with no way out. It’s in the textbooks too.
Islamic Propaganda Week at UMKC….. Highlighted text in the screen capture below from the UMKC Muslim Students Association facebook page claims to have had a da’wah (pushing Islam) event in a Public High School. I will explain why this is a bad idea below.
The facebook page of Yousef Hammuda seen below shows several men throwing the Four Finger Muslim Brotherhood “gang sign”. The man with the beard in the center of the picture is Fera El-Ghussein, former President of the UMKC-MSA and is a youth leader in the Muslim American Society of Kansas City. Yousef Hammouda is also a youth leader with the Muslim American Society and as his profile shows, a Teacher at the Islamic Center of Kansas. Look at the picture, can you pic out the Muslim Brotherhood folks????
Feras El-Ghussein, the former President of the UMKC-MSA can also be seen in another picture with some of the older Muslim American Society leaders. Pictured below at the Plaza Fountains in KC August 2013 again with the Muslim Brotherhood “gang sign”. It should be noted now, that the Muslim American Society is a designated terrorist organization in the UAE, and the Muslim Brotherhood is also a banned terror organization in Egypt. This makes inviting them to your high school a bad idea.
Another young Muslim man with a long history in Kansas City is Mohammed Soltan. Pictured below in 1999 at the Islamic School of Greater Kansas City. His father, Salah Soltan was recently given the death sentence in Egypt and Mohammed will likely receive the same verdict on April 11th, just days from now for his accused role in Muslim Brotherhood operations.
It should also be noted that Mohammed Soltan was former President of the Muslim Students Association at Ohio State University along his path as a tool for the Muslim Brotherhood. See more about this troubled young man that was started on his troubled path arguably in the Islamic School of Greater Kansas City HERE.
The MSA has a growing list of terrorist alumni as noted in this post, Why Muslim Student Group Concerned the NYPD: (but they did nothing about them)
The list is extensive, but among the MSA alumni who went on to terrorist involvement are:
- Anwar al-Awlaki, an influential American-born al-Qaida cleric who recruited a series of homegrown jihadists before being killed by a U.S. drone strike;
- Aafia Siddiqui, convicted of attempted murder and assault on U.S. officers and employees in Afghanistan;
- Zachary Chesser, convicted of attempting to provide material support to the Somali terrorist group al-Shabaab and soliciting attacks on “South Park” producers for an episode in which the prophet Muhammad was shown in a bear suit;
- Jesse Morton, convicted with Chesser of threatening the South Park producers with murder;
- Adam Gadahn, an al-Qaida spokesman who is on the FBI’s Most Wanted List for treason and material support to al-Qaida;
- Waheed Zaman, who was convicted of plotting to blow up transatlantic flights;
- Adis Medunjanin, who is awaiting trial for plotting to bomb New York subways;
- Ramy Zamzam, who was convicted in Pakistan of conspiring to carry out terrorist attacks;
- Omar Hammami, who was indicted on charges of providing material support to al-Shabbab and is designated by the U.S. Treasury Department for his terrorist connections;
- Muhammad Junaid Babar, who pled guilty to his support to al-Qaida; and
- Syed Hashmi, who pled guilty to providing material support to al-Qaida.
MSA was founded in the United States in 1963 by members of the Egyptian-based Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood seeks a global Islamic state and has spawned leaders of a series of Sunni terrorist groups, including al-Qaida, Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
The Muslim Brotherhood motto established by founder Hassan al-Banna is, “God is our objective, the Quran is our Constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our way, and death for the sake of God is the highest of our aspirations.”
MSA members remain faithful to Brotherhood ideology. At the closing session of the MSA West conference in January 2011 at UCLA, attendees recited a pledge, “Allah is my lord, Islam is my life, the Quran is my guide, the Sunna is my practice, Jihad is my spirit, righteousness is my character, paradise is my goal. I enjoin what is right, I forbid what is wrong, I will fight against oppression, and I will die to establish Islam.”
And its your kids, and their kids, kids being forced to listen to Islamic dawah in public schools, that they will be killing to establish Islam. In America.

“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.” ~ George Orwell, 1984
They control what your children read and learn in school. via FFA – Houghton Mifflin Harcourt blocks emails objecting to their workbooks omitting Christianity and Judaism while including Islam for 15 years.
Florida Association sent out an email alert on February 23, 2015 titled Houghton Mifflin Harcourt admits their vocabulary workbooks omitted Christianity and Judaism while including Islam during the past 15 years. The email alert encouraged people to send emails urging Houghton Mifflin Harcourt officials to stop omitting Judaism and Christianity from their publications and start providing legally balanced religious content in the future. Thousands of people sent emails.
However, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt started blocking the emails being sent through Florida Family Association’s email server. The following is the block message received from the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt server:
Final-recipient: rfc822; email@example.com Action: failed Status: 5.1.1 Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 550 Administrative prohibition - envelope blocked - http://kb.mimecast.com/ Mimecast_Knowledge_Base/Administration_Console/Monitoring/Mimecast_SMTP_Error_Codes#550 Last-attempt-Date: Wed, 11 Mar 2015 22:55:27 +0000
Rather than respond to the concerns raised in the online campaign Houghton Mifflin Harcourt decided to block the emails that challenged the content of their workbooks.
Several news sites (Fox News and CreepingSharia) reported in late December 2014 that the Pitt County School District in North Carolina was using a vocabulary textbook with a chapter titled The Islamic World. The work book contained several pages of vocabulary fill in the blank questions such as:
The entire Islamic World section is posted here.
Florida Family Association submitted a Public Records Request on January 5, 2015 to the Pitt County School District which asked for copies of the vocabulary textbook chapter titled The Islamic World. The request also asked for the separate Christian and Jewish side lessons that the district spokesperson, Brock Letchworth, alleged were also distributed. Mr. Letchworth complied with the request. He provided Florida Family Association with a copy of the entire Holt, Rinehart and Winston Vocabulary Workshop Fourth Lesson and two separately created side lessons.
The Holt, Rinehart and Winston Vocabulary Workshop Fourth Lesson was first published 15 years ago.
Florida Family Association began a long drawn out email exchange with Roderick M. Spelman, Vice President of Holt, Rinehart and Winston’s parent company Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Florida Family Association asked Roderick M. Spelman “What other workbooks are currently offered for this grade level which give the same presentation of Judaism and Christianity that were presented in this workbook for Islamism, Hinduism and Buddhism?”
After several follow up email communications, Mr. Spelman finally answered on February 6, 2015 with: “After reviewing past product I cannot provide you with any vocabulary workbook titles that have been published by HMH (presently or via our legacy companies) that present Judaism or Christianity as the basis for a set of vocabulary activities. That said, our range of Social Studies texts do present content on all major religions. I would be happy to direct you to those title if that would be helpful to you. Please let me know.”
However, Mr. Spelman has not provided the alleged “Social Studies texts on all major religions” that he offered on February 6, 2015 despite Florida Family Association’s follow up requests.
The Holt, Rinehart and Winston Vocabulary Workshop Fourth Lesson workbook is still offered for sale and used in schools.
By Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s own admission they have not offered during the past fifteen years vocabulary workbooks that have included Chapters on Judaism and Christianity for this grade level but they have for Islam. Omitting Judaism and Christianity from publications in this manner makes it difficult for school districts to present a curriculum with fairly and legally balanced religious content.
Florida Family Association has prepared a new email for you to send to urge the top three institutional shareholders in Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and the company’s directors to take action to stop the omission of Judaism and Christianity from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt publications and to make sure future publications provide fairly and legally balanced religious content.

But the school did pledge to punish staff with some Islamic dawah. via McGill rejects request for women-only gym hours | CTV Montreal News.
McGill University has rejected two students’ request to establish women-only hours at the on-campus gym.
In a news release, the school said it does not believe in segregating its services, and the fact that it is committed to making sure gym patrons are respectful toward each other were key factors in the decision.
The original request was made by law students Soumia Allalou and Raymond Grafton.
Allalou said that her initiative to dedicate three weekly one-hour women-only sessions per week was inspired by her religious beliefs as a Muslim but she said that all women would benefit.
“A couple of women messaged me and expressed that they would like to see women’s hours implemented. They feel intimidated using the weights section especially. They’ve been harassed, looked at, watched,” she has previously told CTV Montreal.
Though there are already women-only hours at the swimming pool [sic], the university said the pool is “by its nature a different environment than the gym.”
The statement goes on to explain that part of the goal of a recent renovation was to make the fitness centre “as comfortable as possible for all our clientele.”
“We encourage and will continue to encourage all our patrons to engage respectfully with one another, just as we expect all members of our community to treat each other equitably and respectfully in whatever context,” it says.
Among other ongoing measures, the school says it pledges to educate staff to make sure they “understand the needs and sensitivities of a diverse clientele.”
McGill has amongst its graduates…a jihadi.

Courtesy of Obama’s open door policy for Saudi students. via Accused ISU dorm intruder faces charges, possible expulsion. h/t TROP How about jail and then deportation?
POCATELLO, Idaho – An ISU student is accused of entering multiple dorm rooms and inappropriately touching the occupants over a two-week period.
Sultan Bamoallem, a freshman finance major from Saudi Arabia, faces multiple misdemeanor charges including trespassing, battery and stalking.
Pocatello police said on Feb 23, Bamoallem entered a female student’s dorm in Turner Hall. Police said the student woke up to a partially-clad Bamoallem touching her back. He was charged with unlawful entry and battery.
“That’s really scary. As a female, that makes me really scared,” said ISU student Kelci McDermott.
“I found it kind of troubling,” said Rosco Tillman, who lives in Turner Hall.
On March 10, police said they got a report of Bamoallem following a student into a women’s restroom around 4 p.m.
On March 11, they responded to Nichols Hall just before 1 a.m. where they said Bamoallem had gained access by telling a student he lived there and had forgotten his key card.
At that point, ISU banned Bamoallem from campus, but officers said they found him later that night on the seventh floor of Turner Hall.
On March 13, police said Bamoallem attempted to camp out in the police department lobby, after which they say he groped a cleaning lady.
Officers said they later found Bamoallem at Rendezvous Center, where they said he had entered three separate dorms, each time touching the male and female occupants on the cheeks and upper torso.
“That’s a little creepy and not very cool at all,” said ISU student Kadon Miles.

“I usually leave the window open and the door open because it gets really hot,” said Parks.
Parks said she woke up to Bamoallem lightly stroking up and down her back.
“I kind of sat and I looked at him and I said, ‘Oh, what are you doing in here?’” Parks said.
Parks said Bamoallem claimed to be her roommate’s boyfriend and said that he had gone to the wrong bed by mistake.
It was then she noticed he wasn’t wearing any pants. She also noticed something else — on her roommate’s bed.
“There was actually a condom wrapper sitting on her pillow,” said Parks.
That’s when Parks said she began to piece things together.
“I realized that he was — whenever I woke up he was … facing my bed and touching somewhere towards his genital area,” Parks said. “It kind of freaked me out to think what could have happened if I didn’t wake up.”
But Parks said what stood out most was how the man remained calm — even confident — the entire time he was in her dorm.
“He didn’t think he was doing anything wrong the way he was talking to me,” said Parks. “He was kind of like, ‘Hey, I’m in your room and I’ve got this condom ready.’”

Sent in by a reader regarding the Univ. of New Mexico’s sharia resolution:
Since Creeping Sharia was one of the first websites to report the UNM Resolution 6S story, you might be interested in my dialogue with one of the students who was extensively quoted in the original article by David Lynch:
Dear Mr. Lynch, Your Daily Lobo article about the ASUNM resolution 6S to oppose Islamophobia got nation-wide circulation. As a former reporter and editor for my own college daily newspaper, I would have loved to have gotten that much readership.
The only problem with your article, however, was that it fell short of asking the obvious questions of the people you interviewed. You devoted over a third of your article to your interview with Ihsan Wadud-Rodriguez who claimed, “Those very cultural practices which are not supported by Americans are also not supported by Islam. There is no contradiction: I don’t experience any self-discrepancy between my American values and Islamic values.”
Why didn’t you ask her, “For example?” or “Name a few Islamic cultural practices which are not supported by Islam.” I think you would have found if you had taken the interview one level deeper, you would have discovered that she was blowing smoke. In Islam that practice is called Taqiyah.
I tracked down Ihsan, and I asked her about her statement. Here is the dialogue:
Chris: Ihsan Rodriguez was interviewed extensively yesterday with regard to a resolution by the ASUNM. I would like to ask her a couple of questions, but I cannot find her email address. Perhaps you can put me in contact with her.
Ihsan: Hello, this is Ihsan Wadud-Rodriguez. I believe you have been trying to contact me?
Chris: Thanks for getting back to me. There was an article recently about University of New Mexico’s ASUNM Resolution 6S which calls for a ban on “prejudice against Islam or Muslims, especially as a political force.” You were quoted in the article According to the article, you said, “Islam has been unfairly confounded with cultural practices. Those very cultural practices which are not supported by Americans are also not supported by Islam.” Your impressive résumé indicates that you came from Saudi Arabia. Some of the practices there which are clearly not supported by Americans include beheading people for minor offenses including leaving Islam, chopping of the hands of petty thieves, forbidding Muslim women from marrying non-Muslims, stoning adulterers, FGM, and allowing old men to marry pre-pubescent children. So I am trying to understand your statement. Are you saying that all of these offensive practices “cultural” and therefore unrelated to Islam? Looking forward to your response.
Ihsan: It seems that you have learned a few things about me. Would you mind introducing yourself?
Chris: I am nobody in particular. I have studied Islam in depth since before 9/11, and I written three books about Islam. (You can’t Google them, because I use a pseudonym.) The comments that were attributed to you indicate that you either know much more about Islam than I do, or that you really don’t know much at all, That’s why I wanted to find out what you meant by your comments.
(Ihsan never responded.)
Chris: It has been over a day since I responded to your email, introducing myself, but you have not answered my question. You told the reporter, David Lynch, that you just wanted to spread understanding. Well, this is your chance. If people have misunderstood the religion of Islam or the cultural practices that are not part of Islam, please explain those things to me and help me understand. In turn, I will help spread the word to my large audience. I want people in all parts of the world to live in peace, and that sounds like your objective, too. Let’s make this happen.
(Ihsan still has not responded after two more days.) The “teaching opportunity” from this exchange with Ihsan is that merely recording an interviewee’s talking points without follow-up questions puts the reporter in the position of being a convenient megaphone for propaganda. Challenging the interviewee to provide facts and data, helps ferret out truth from falsehood.
Reporters are (or should be) reporting the truth – even when it cuts against the grain.
As Mark Twain once said, “A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”
