A former SUNY Potsdam student has been indicted in connection with death threats and hate messages directed at an African American professor as well as the college community.

Amjad Hussain was arraigned Monday in St. Lawrence County Court on two felony counts of second-degree aggravated harassment as a hate crime and one count of fourth-degree criminal solicitation.

The 23 year old Elmira man is charged with delivering two messages to the professor that included death threats and racist and homophobic language. The messages also threatened the professor’s family.

Hussain is also charged with soliciting another individual to deliver a third threatening note to the professor.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced the news of the indictment Monday.

“Nobody should be made to feel unsafe or subject to harassment in their workplace, least of all our state’s hardworking, dedicated teachers,” Schneiderman said in a news release. “This indictment sends the message, loud and clear, that racist and homophobic threats will be treated with the utmost concern, and those responsible for such harassment will be held accountable.”

According to filed documents and statements made in court, on two separate occasions in April 2015, Hussain delivered two notes to the professor’s office containing homophobic and racist pictures and language, threatening physical harm and death to the professor and the professor’s family.

Following his arrest in November 2015, Hussain allegedly solicited another individual to deliver a third note, also containing threats and racist and homophobic language directed at the professor.

Hussain faces up to four years in state prison on each felony count if convicted.

During his arraignment, Hussain pleaded not guilty.

He was released under probation supervision and ordered to stay away from the alleged victim.

The next court date is October 11 at noon.


Curious timing on the indictment…nine months after he was arrested for the threats against the race-baiting professor.

It follows a flurry of other terror-related sentencings and announcements by the feds this week, just days after four terror attacks in the U.S.

 

New Jersey 2nd Graders Taught: ‘Allah loves those who make themselves clean’

BARNEGAT – The father of a second-grader in the Cecil S. Collins School was alarmed to see references to hijabs and thawbs – clothing worn by religious Muslims – and a quote from the Quran included in a health and hygiene worksheet given to his daughter.barnegat-edu-hijab2

The worksheet included instruction about cleanliness and neatness not just of shoes and clothing but of a student’s hijab and thawb, an ankle-length robe-like garment worn by Muslim men, according to pictures sent to the Asbury Park Press by Barnegat father Chris Sharpe.

The sheet also included a reference to a Quran quote that read “Allah loves those who make themselves clean and pure.”

At first, Sharpe said he feared the school was indoctrinating his daughter. Other parents were equally alarmed, he said.

“Everybody was up in arms,” Sharpe said.

On Wednesday morning, Sharpe said Barnegat school officials apologized to parents and explained that it was a simple mistake of a teacher quickly downloading health worksheets online and not carefully reviewing their content.

Superintendent Karen Wood said Wednesday afternoon that she was not immediately prepared to make a statement on the matter. Sharpe said the teacher who distributed the worksheet wasn’t his daughter’s regular instructor.

Sharpe said he was satisfied with the explanation and the school’s professional management of what started as a contentious situation.

“Obviously you would hope that they were review everything a little bit more, but it happens,” he said. “I’m very happy to chalk it up as one of those things that just sort of happened.”

“It was no accident,” Bob Johnson wrote. “Democrats across the country are pushing Islam on us.”

“I am a Muslim and I say that worksheet belongs in an Islamic school, not a public school,” Rida Chishti posted.

“Leftists have allied with Islamists because they both share a common enemy; Western Civilization,” John Sorger added.

Barnegat Township School District Superintendent Karen Wood told Fox News the “novice instructor” had “downloaded a worksheet from the online sharing site Pinterest and utilized it during a lesson.”

“This worksheet – which was neither carefully reviewed by the teacher nor approved by an administrator – contained a religious reference, in clear violation of district policy,” she said.

“We recognize the significance of this error,” Wood continued. “Our parents have been extremely supportive as we take measures necessary to ensure that this remains an isolated incident.”

Some locals, however, believe the district should take the situation a little more seriously.

“If this had the name of Jesus on it, there would be an even bigger outrage,” a local identified as “Mrs. Erskine” told Fox News. “I hope that proper precautions are made to prevent further indoctrination of Islam.”

Rob Russo, parent of a child in the district, believes school officials should send a message.

“While I understand that mistakes happen, I am seriously disappointed to learn that a teacher made independent changes to a lesson plan, resulting in information being given that didn’t follow subject matter, or state and local curriculum plans and chose to promote what seems to be their own agenda,” he said.


For some reason, Asbury Park Press reporter Amanda Oglesby, @OglesbyAPP or her editor chose a completely unrelated picture of the terrorist-named and Hamas-linked CAIR at the top of the article with a sympathetic description about the supposed difficulties facing Muslims since 9/11. 

barnegat-oglesby-cair

This is intentional media bias in favor of all things Islamic.

Later in the article she included two small and hard to view images from Mr. Sharpe well below the CAIR image and caption that is completely unrelated to this story…unless the teacher is a Muslim and/or member of CAIR. If anyone has a Pinterest account and can find the full image we can post it.

The reality is, since 9/11, Americans have had their liberties taken away, their incomes plundered to pay for wars and “homeland security” – that has failed with deadly results as Muslims continue to slaughter Americans on American soil and public schools continue to subject students to Islamic indoctrination at all levels. Most often by design and with intention. See our Education category or search the archives.

In the Koran, just a few verses after the verse taught to New Jersey six and seven-year olds, it reads:

they fight in Allah’s way, so they slay and are slain

They, the Muslims, are fighting for sharia and slaying those who oppose it. And if they do, Allah promises them the garden (heaven), according to the Koran.

Australia: Catholic high school teacher reads Koran before class prayers, parents fuming

Parents have been left fuming after discovering a history and geography teacher has been reading excerpts of the Koran to their children at a Catholic boy’s high school.

Jesse Pittard, who teaches both subjects at Christian Brothers’ High School, in Lewisham in Sydney’s inner-west, has come under fire from parents for reading out sections of the Koran to his year seven students at the start of the day during home room and before classes.

Koran-reading teacher Jesse Pittard

Parents and students told Daily Mail Australia Mr Pittard began reading excerpts to students at the beginning of the semester in July and claimed he has since read ‘more than half’ the Koran to them.

Parents are particularly angry they were not told about the Koran readings and questioned why the Muslim holy book needed to be read outside of religion classes.

One mother said her son revealed during a conversation that Mr Pittard was reading the Koran to him before his geography class.

‘We don’t send our kids to an Islamic school to listen to the Koran and it’s not a religion lesson, it’s a geography lesson, so how does that relate to geography?’ she said.

Mr Pittard has chosen not to comment on the matter.

The school’s principal, Brother Paul Conn, confirmed Mr Pittard had read passages from the Koran before several year seven classes, and said he had received three emails and one phone call from concerned parents asking for him to investigate the matter.

But he denied the readings had been going since the beginning of the school semester and had only happened ‘for a couple of days’ and were ‘supposed to be an academic exercise’.

‘Unfortunately, due to the timing of the exercise being with the normal beginning of [Catholic] lesson prayer, some confusion did exist,’ he said.

Mr Conn has since spoken to concerned parents. He said further discussion of the Koran in class has stopped.

‘I … clarified to all concerned that as a Catholic school, we are one hundred percent committed to our Catholic faith, and that our strategic plan and Religious Education Program has the Catholic faith as its core,’ he said.

‘Being a culturally diverse school, we are open to informed and balanced discussion on all faiths, but our commitment in terms of faith education is to the Catholic Faith.

‘I spoke to the teacher concerned, who is a Christian, and he now understands that all beginning of lesson prayer at CBHS Lewisham is Catholic.

‘He never intended to do anything differently, but his timing did cause some confusion. No further discussion on the Koran will be happening as no further need exists.’

One of Mr Pittard’s students said the teacher had read the English version of the Koran before geography class.

‘We don’t even listen, because it’s so long,’ the year seven student said.

‘We only do [Catholic] prayers in religion classes, but for one geography lesson we were waiting for about seven to ten minutes while he was reading the Koran.’

‘He gives us a demerit if any of us tell him not to read it … He has read more than half the Koran,’ another student said.

However, the principal denied any student had received demerit points for asking to not listen to the Koran.

‘One of the parents who contacted me was concerned about the issuing of a demerit. It was clarified that this was definitely not for anything to do with the reading of the Koran but for a completely separate classroom behaviour issue.


Now that he’s been outed, there’s no need for more Koran readings…until it happens again.

Canada: School lets Muslims skip mandatory music class, violates the sharia

Only Muslims are allowed to skip the class.

Source: Mandatory music classes hit a bad note with some Muslim parents – The Globe and Mail  h/t Blazing

When music class begins this week at Toronto’s Donwood Park elementary school, Mohammad Nouman Dasu will send a family member to collect his three young children. They will go home for an hour rather than sing and play instruments – a mandatory part of the Ontario curriculum he believes violates his Muslim faith.

The Scarborough school and the Toronto District School Board originally had offered an accommodation – suggesting students could just clap their hands in place of playing instruments or listen to acapella versions of O Canada – but not a full exemption from the class.

After a bitter three-year fight, however, Mr. Dasu felt he had no other opton but to bring his kids home.

According to documents ob-tained by The Globe and Mail, some parents insist they cannot allow their children to be in the same room where musical instruments are being played. Mr. Dasu, a Koran teacher who sometimes leads prayers at Scarborough’s Jame Abu Bakr Siddique mosque, says he has led the fight on behalf of parents. He has consulted with national Islamic bodies, and requested a letter from the leader of his mosque.

“We here believe that music is haram [forbidden]. We can neither listen to it, nor can we play a role in it,” said the mosque’s imam, Kasim Ingar.

Conceding that Muslims have to adjust when they send their kids to public school, he suggested that some matters, such as teaching music, are beyond debate.

“We do not compromise with anyone on the clear-cut orders and principles conveyed by the Prophet,” said Mr. Ingar, who also leads the Scarborough Muslim Association.

Within Islam, the question of whether Muslims are banned from music is divisive and nuanced. Similar to questions about whether women should wear veils, there is no consensus on the issue.

But Ontario’s primary-school curriculum is unambiguous on music class: It must be taught, without exception, to all primary-school-aged children. Officials at the TDSB say they can only bend the rules to accommodate religious students, but not exempt them.

The Globe used freedom of information laws to access TDSB e-mails on how the issue evolved at Donwood Park, where it first surfaced in 2013.

The released records redact the names of students for privacy reasons, and very few families appear to have been adamant over pulling children from music classes. Early internal e-mails show administrators wanted to find “some common ground.”

But Mr. Dasu, who says he represents many of the parents at the school concerned about the issue, pushed for exclusion for his own children by invoking the prospect of litigation and the religious freedoms clause of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Continue reading

UC-Irvine sanctions Muslim students for terrorizing Jewish campus event

Again. Source: UCI sanctions Muslim students for laying siege to Jewish event

After months of deliberation, the University of California, Irvine has concluded its investigation into its Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) chapter, deeming the group worthy of sanctions for intimidating Israeli students.

Campus Reform initially reported in May that a film-screening hosted by a Jewish student group on campus was disrupted by a protest “organized and led” by SJP, the school has finally conceded.

As a result, though, SJP will merely be issued a “written warning, effective immediately.” The school insists, however, that the warning will last a really long time—all the way until March of next year, to be exact.

The only apparent consequence of the warning is that SJP will be forced to host “an educational program by November 18 2016,” according to an email obtained by Campus Reform.

“After a thorough review, the student conduct investigation is now complete,” Vice Chancellor Thomas Parham wrote in a campus-wide email. “The investigators found that Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), the group that organized and led the protest, violated Student Conduct Policies regarding disruption: ‘Obstruction or disruption of teaching, research, administration, disciplinary procedures, or other University activities.’”

The move comes on the heels of increased pressure mounted on UCI’s administration by local Jewish advocacy groups, many of which protested the lack of action taken by the school.

At least 36 activist groups, in fact, condemned the administration for its response, saying in a letter that UCI “consistently turns a blind eye to acts of anti-Semitism.”

Just this year, though, at least nine incidents of anti-Semitic activity have occurred on UCI’s campus, the disruption caused by SJP being the most recent, where one student was left no choice but to hide from an approaching mob of protesters.

Notably, the school’s College Republican chapter was recently suspended because of an administrative technicality. Due to national outrage, though, that decision was later overturned.

In his Thursday letter, Parham noted SJP’s constitutional right to protest, but cited its hostility and intimidation as grounds for the suspension.

“UCI values its diverse mix of cultures and opinions,” he wrote. “We support and defend groups exercising free speech and assembly, yet we must protect everyone’s right to express themselves without disruption. This is a bedrock principle of our university. Let’s continue to work together to foster a safe environment that allows the open, civil, and robust exchange of ideas to flourish.”

Pennsylvania: Muslim refugees sue school district, charge school not good enough

Ungrateful “refugees” wasting more taxpayer money

It’s bad enough that Obama is flooding America with “refugees,” the majority of whom are Muslim (taxation for Islamization), but now the economic “refugees” are suing those who rescued them from the third world hell holes they fled. Source: Refugees sue Pa. district, charge school not good enough

A group of refugees is suing a Central Pennsylvania school district, saying the academy they were put in after their arduous journey to America is not up to snuff.

Represented by the Pennsylvania branch of the American Civil Liberties Union, the six refugees sued Lancaster schools in federal court, saying they were dumped in a disciplinary school and are being denied access to a quality education. The students range in age from 17 to 21, and hail from Somalia, Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo and Burma.

“[The] Plaintiffs are refugees who have fled war, violence, and persecution from their native countries,” reads a statement from the lawsuit. “Having finally escaped their turbulent environment to resettle in America, these young immigrants yearn to learn English and get an education so they can make a life for themselves.”

The refugees hoped to enter McCaskey High School, known for its superior academic program, but instead were sent to Phoenix Academy, an alternative high school for “underachieving” students in the district. Phoenix students are subject to pat-downs, banned from bringing personal belongings like watches and jewelry and forced to wear colored shirts that “correspond with behavior.”

U.S. News and World Report’s 2016 rankings show Phoenix Academy has a graduation rate of 54 percent, and its 458 students perform substantially below the state average on standardized tests. More than 90 percent of the students come from poor families, and there are just 11 full-time teachers at the school, according to the magazine.

“Our clients have already experienced much trauma and loss before arriving in this country,” Reggie Shuford, executive director of the ACLU of Pennsylvania, said in a statement. “Rather than helping them make the difficult adjustment by providing educational resources required by law, the school district has denied them an education completely or forced them into an alternative school, where they are often bullied and don’t learn.”

Officials for the school district say the six students were sent to Phoenix for a special program geared towards their needs.

“[The District] believes the lawsuit is without merit,” Superintendent Damaris Rau said in a statement. “We are confident we are doing an excellent job supporting our refugee students who often come to school with little or no education.”

A special “acceleration program” at Phoenix was created for under-credited students, both refugee and non-refugee, which gives them the opportunity to earn credits toward a high school diploma by the age of 21, Rau said.

At Phoenix, the students receive various services including remedial services, English classes for Second Language Learners, after school programs, job and computer skills as well as mentoring services, Rau added.

Earlier this week, some of the students testified about their educational experience in an Eastern District of Pennsylvania courtroom.

Khadidja Issa, who arrived in America from Chad with her family by way of their home country Sudan, said on Tuesday school officials told her she “was too old for school” and should get a job instead.

“I responded that I didn’t want a job without an education,” she said.

Issa, who lived in a refugee camp from the age of 5 to 17, also said that she found the search procedure invasive while attending the school.

“I have been to school before and I’ve never seen a place where they pat you down in order to enter school, and they do it every day,” she said.


End refugee resettlement to the U.S. Halt all immigration until the borders are secure and illegals deported.

As for these ungrateful freeloaders, send them back where they came from.
