NYC Children’s Museum Indoctrinates Kids with Islam

There’s a war for the mind’s of your children and grandchildren taking place. If you ignore it and don’t teach them, you’re leaving it in the hands of those who practice one of the most intolerant and violent ideologies the world has ever seen. Or those who’ve already submitted to them. Beware.  newyork-islamizationSource: NYC Children’s Museum Celebrates Muslim Diversity  h/t Free Republic

Imagine a place where children can steer a dhow boat across the Indian Ocean, sell Egyptian spices and Moroccan rugs, hop on a camel and embark across the Sahara. “America to Zanzibar: Muslim Cultures Near and Far” is a groundbreaking interactive museum exhibit in the heart of New York City that lets kids do just that: explore the A-to-Z of Muslim cultures.

The Children’s Museum of Manhattan (CMOM), established in 1973, is a hands-on cultural destination for families committed to nurturing “the next generation of global citizens.”

CMOM’s executive director, Andrew Ackerman, says the addition of the Muslim cultures exhibit allows families an opportunity to discuss unity and diversity within the same tradition — a factor he says is crucial for developing young minds.

“Those attitudes really form very early in life,” Ackerman said. “So part of our role as a children’s museum is to open their minds and experiences with very positive images about people from different lifestyles and different parts of the world, so that negative stereotypes don’t take root.”

Across from the courtyard, next to a life-size 900-pound camel, is the “American home” living room, made up of clothing, artwork, photos and books donated from American Muslims of all walks of life. On the coffee table, there is an app that teaches you how to write and say “My name is …” in 24 languages spoken by Muslims in New York.

The city’s mayor, Bill de Blasio, has praised the exhibit as an “important cultural resource,” calling New York Muslim residents a “vital part” of the city’s diverse communities.

“Children will have the chance to learn about Muslim cultures in an engaging and thoughtful way,” said de Blasio.  “We only grow stronger when we embrace and celebrate the multitude of cultural backgrounds that make up New York City.”

New York: Muslim Teacher Arrested, Groped 9-Year-Old Girl at After-School Mosque Class

EAST ELMHURST — Authorities have arrested an after-school program teacher who sexually abused a 9-year-old girl in his class at a Queens mosque — after the girl revealed the abuse during a sex abuse prevention workshop at her elementary school, according to the Queens District Attorney’s office.

Mohammad Rana, 46, an instructor at an after-school religious program at the Islamic Center of Jackson Heights, Masjid Abu Huraira mosque at 78-04 31st Ave., groped the girl twice over the past three months, according to the Queens DA’s office. He’s been working at the center for seven years, his lawyer said.

The first incident took place some time between Nov. 30, 2015, and Jan. 28, 2016, when Rana allegedly reached underneath the girl’s shirt, grabbed and squeezed her chest and said, “you are a good girl,” according to his criminal complaint.

He also allegedly touched the girl’s chest over her clothing on Feb. 3, 2016.

The victim came forward about the alleged abuse while attending a sexual abuse prevention workshop at her elementary school, the DA said.

The program uses puppets to discuss inappropriate behavior, and the girl told the instructor what happened to her, according to the complaint.

Officials at the mosque could not be reached for comment.

Rana, who lives in East Elmhurst, was arraigned Wednesday afternoon and charged with two counts of first-degree sex abuse and endangering the welfare of a child. If convicted he faces up to 7 years in prison, the DA said.

At his arraignment, he told investigators he may have accidentally made contact with the victim when asking her to line up before leaving, according to the complaint.

“Usually before the class in mosque is over I tell all the kids to form a line,” he said, saying the victim often tries to leave before it’s time.

He’ll sometimes put his hand on the door, and on her, to stop her from leaving and “unintentionally and without thinking about where I make contact.”

He said he “never had any ill intentions whenever my hands came in contact with her” and asked for forgiveness.

Massachusetts: Terror-linked CAIR Intertwines with Terror-Linked Jamaat ul-Fuqra

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its “moderate” image is suffering from a self-inflicted wound now it has become intertwined with the Muslims of the Americas, a radical anti-Semitic front for the Jamaat ul-Fuqra terrorist group.

CAIR’s Massachusetts chapter now shares an official with MOA and two CAIR officials spoke at MOA’s International Islamophobia Conference.

The Massachusetts chapter of CAIR recently chose MOA’s general counsel, Tahirah Amatul Wadud, as a board member. CAIR, a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity banned for its own terror links in the UAE, wisely omitted mention of MOA. It described her generically as a “general counsel for a New York Muslim congregation.”

Wadud reportedly posted an article by MOA’s Pakistan-based leader, Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, on her Facebook claiming the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) is a puppet of the British government and a Jewish conspiracy perpetrated the attacks on Pearl Harbor and September 11, 2001. The Clarion Project was the first to report on the inflammatory article.

Jamaat ul-Fuqra is led by Gilani. It is best known for a series of terrorist attacks and plots in the 1980s and early 1990s and for setting up “Islamic villages” across the country, including at least two that were shut down by the authorities. These “villages” are known to have been used for guerilla warfare training. Fuqra now goes primarily by the name of Muslims of the Americas (MOA), among other names. The group says it has 22 such “villages” in the U.S.

The Clarion Project obtained video of female members receiving basic paramilitary instruction in military fatigue at its “Islamberg” headquarters in New York. The date of the footage is cut off, only stating “Jan. 28 20,” presumably meaning it was made in 2000 or after. The best explanation MOA members have come up with is that it was a “self-defense class.”

New York: Public school organizes ‘Hijab Day’ for non-Muslim students

Supposedly the whole thing was thought up and organized by one Muslim refugee/immigrant from Yemen. It should be followed by  a hijab-free day.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Officials at Rochester’s World School of Inquiry spent last week fielding dozens of calls from parents angry about a “World Hijab Day” event that encouraged girls to wear the Muslim religious head covering.

Sophomore Eman Muthana wears a hijab to school and wrote a letter to principal Sheela Webster asking if the school can put on its own World Hijab Day at the school last Friday, WHAM reports.

Webster approved the event – designed to educate students about the religious purposes behind the hijab – but did not inform parents until after the media reports of the event sparked backlash online, and angry calls to the school, according to WHEC.

“As a high school teacher for over 30 years, let me say that this is wrong on so many levels,” Jim Farnholz wrote, according to the news site.

“All religions are taught in our global studies classes. That being said, that is where understanding, tolerance and the good and bad of religion and history are taught. This, however, is a clear violation of separation of church and state.”

WHEC reports teachers brought in about 150 scarves in on Friday and wrapped up volunteers before the first bell. The school set up tables in the cafeteria, where girls tried on a hijab and boys were given carnations for support, according to WHEC, which described the event as “student run.”

“We wanted them to experience it and feel how we feel,” Muthana, originally of Yemen, told the site. “I just feel proud that I’m sharing my culture.”

“I love that we’re having the open conversation. I think that’s the first step into making it a more open and tolerant environment. I think this is the perfect school for it,” English-as-a-Second-Language teacher Kelly Lalonde told WHAM.

A district spokesman told the site officials consulted with an attorney about the World Hijab Day event, and were advised that “there would be more of a legal issue if the school said no to the event” than to hold lessons on the Muslim scarf.

Regardless, Webster, who also donned a hijab, was adamant the school did not promote religion, but rather cultural acceptance.

“Our perspective in it was not religious – it was really about experiential,” she told WHAM. “We are an experiential school; we engage kids in all kinds of activities and projects all of the time, so the perspective of being able to learn what a hijab is, why some women choose to wear it and why some women don’t choose to wear it, and we provide the opportunity to experience it; it is well within protocol of experiential learning.”

She told WHEC the lessons on the hijab had nothing to do with the Muslim religion, it “was actually around learning about the cloth.”

School board president Van Henri White didn’t seem to have a problem with the hijab day when he stopped in on the event Friday.

“She’s not trying to make anybody else anything other than who they are,” White said of Muthana, “but she wants people to accept who she is.”

WHEC reporter Brett Davidsen asked: “Does it put any pressure on the kids who don’t want to participate – does it put them in an awkward position?”

“I don’t know,” White replied. “Look around, I don’t see that.”

Many parents and commenters online were offended, nonetheless.

“What lesson will they wear a Yarmulke in? Or the Christian cross? Or the Hindu turban?” Dan Lane posted. “Funny how it always seems to be the Muslims they learn about, even in Common Core.”

“How disgusting and irresponsible for any educator to encourage a child to wear a symbol of oppression, whether it be religious or cultural,” Rebecca Sluman wrote.

“Don’t you kids dare wear a shirt with the American flag on it, someone WILL be offended,” Rick Bentley added.

Muslim Brotherhood Arrive In U.S. For Anti-Sisi Rallies

muslim-brotherhood-jfkSource: MB Apologists Arrive In U.S. For Anti-Sisi Rallies :: The Investigative Project on Terrorism

by John Rossomando

Three Muslim Brotherhood supporters who caused a row in Egypt last year after they met with Obama administration officials and members of Congress returned to the U.S. Wednesday, according to the Facebook page of Egyptian Americans for Freedom and Justice (EAFJ).

[CS: It should be noted that in 2014 an Egyptian court dissolved the Freedom and Justice party, the political wing of the banned Muslim Brotherhood. So EAFJ is actually Egyptian Americans for the Muslim Brotherhood].

During their 2015 trip, Brotherhood leader Gamal Heshmat, former Egyptian Judge Waleed Sharaby and Maha Azzam, head of the Egyptian Revolutionary Council (ERC) lobbied State Department and White House officials for help against the government of Egyptian President Abdel Fatal al-Sisi.

The ERC formed in 2014 with the aim of toppling Sisi and bringing the Brotherhood back to power in Egypt. Sisi took power in 2013 after the Egyptian army ousted President Mohamed Morsi, the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party.

Heshmat has a long history of supporting Palestinian terrorists and was photographed in June 2014 with Hamas political chief Khaled Meshaal.

The State Department agreed with the delegation’s position that Sisi had not brought stability to Egypt, and that his removal would pave the way for a transition to democracy, Sharaby told Egypt’s Mekameleen TV in an interview last February. But that has not translated into concrete action to topple Sisi.

EAFJ leaders Mahmoud El-Sharkawy, Hani Elkadi and Aber Mostafa greeted Heshmat, Sharaby and Azzam at New York’s JFK airport and posed for a picture with them displaying the Brotherhood’s four-fingered Rabaa salute which has become representative among those wanting the Brotherhood’s return to power in Egypt.

The three are scheduled to speak Friday at an event titled “Egyptian Revolution from Sacrifices to Victory” in North Bergen, N.J.

The event is timed to commemorate the Jan. 25 anniversary of dictator Hosni Mubarak’s fall from power in 2011. Heshmat wrote that his group had no plans to meet with Obama administration representatives during this visit, due to their “position biased” toward Sisi’s regime. They hope to speak with some congressmen, academics and others.

El-Sharkawy is a Brotherhood member and serves as liaison with Brotherhood members exiled in Turkey, Egypt’s Al-Bawaba newspaper reported last April.

He frequently reposts Muslim Brotherhood communiqués on his Facebook page. In December, El Sharkawy encouraged “all youth and revolutionaries” to distribute the official page of Brotherhood spokesman Muhammad Muntasir.

Elkadi seemed to self-identify as a Brotherhood member in a March 9 Facebook post showing an cartoon of a man holding a sign with the Brotherhood logo and the words which translate to, “I am [Muslim] Brotherhood and I’m not threatened.”

Last year, Elkadi, El Sharkawy and Mostafa posted graphics on their Facebook pages seeming to support violence in Egypt.

El Sharkawy and Elkadi posted a Feb. 10 communiqué from the Popular Resistance Movement (PRM) which has launched attacks against Egyptian police and other targets. It features an image of a blood-red map of Egypt with a fist superimposed over it. It claims responsibility for targeting two police cars. “God, martyrs, Revolution,” it said.

Mostafa posted the personal information of a pro-Sisi owner of an Egyptian soccer team with the word “Attaaack!” the same day.

NYC: Muslim Uber driver & Army National Guard member arrested, attacked pregnant woman’s service dog

Update below.

More Muslim Uber driver problems. Source: Uber driver attacks pregnant woman’s service dog: cops | New York Post

An Uber driver yanked a nine-months-pregnant passenger’s service dog from her and slammed the pooch onto a Manhattan street because he did not want the animal in his car, cops said on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old Manhattan woman got into Muhammad Qayyum’s cab with her dog, named Brooklyn, at around 7:25 p.m. on Broadway near West 56th Street on Jan. 21, police said.

“I will not take your dog in my car,” Qayyum, 23, told the woman, according to cops.

Mojeh Adams Schaniel told the driver that the silky terrier is her service dog, but Qayyum didn’t care. He got out of the vehicle, opened the rear passenger door and snatched the dog out of the woman’s lap by its leash and threw it to the ground, police said.

The dog suffered a dislocated hip and an injury to its right back leg, according to a criminal complaint filed with the Manhattan DA’s office.

The owner took her service dog to Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners on West 57th Street, where the animal underwent surgery, police said.

Qayyum was arrested on charges of aggravated cruelty to animals and harming a service animal in the second-degree.

He was released without bail and an order of protection was placed against him, the DA said.

Qayyum denied harming the pooch and claimed that the woman punched him in the face multiple times and made “racist, religiously disparaging slurs,” said an Uber spokeswoman, who noted that all of its drivers are required to accommodate service animals.

According to the spokeswoman, Qayyum’s and the woman’s Uber accounts have been suspended pending an investigation into the matter.

“Any mistreatment of animals is abhorrent, and we do not tolerate violent behavior on the platform,” Uber said in a statement.

The woman gave birth to a baby boy Monday night, a doorman at her building told The Post on Tuesday.

“He is a nice, little dog. Sometimes I pet him. I play with him,” the doorman said. “It makes me sad to hear [what happened to Brooklyn]. It’s a small dog. I didn’t know [the Uber driver] did that to him . . . I hope he gets better.”

The woman and her husband moved into the Midtown building about a month ago, the doorman said.


Update via NY Daily News

Qayyum is due back in court March 29 after he was released without bail last week. That means he’ll miss his upcoming deployment with the New York Army National Guard, which he joined in September, according to a state Division of Military and Naval Affairs rep.


Does the Army National Guard really want members who adhere to sharia law so strictly that they – the Muslims – won’t allow dogs in their cars? Imagine how he feels about and treats women. At what point will he choose Islam over his supposed brothers in arms?

Islamic Kuwait Air Halts New York Flights Rather Than Allow Jews to Fly

Islamophobia, racism, bla bla bla. via: Kuwait Air Halts New York Flights over Flying Israelis

Kuwait Air has announced it will halt passenger service from New York’s JFK airport to Heathrow in London by January 18, due to a requirement by the United States Department of Transportation that it cease discrimination against Israeli travelers.

“The US Department of Transportation will not tolerate unlawful discrimination, and has mandated that the airline immediately cease that practice and allow Israeli passengers to travel between the US and London,” Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said on Friday.

The Times of Israel reports that DOT notified Kuwait Air its policies violated American law in September, after reviewing a complaint filed by an Israeli named Eldad Gatt.

Gatt wanted to buy a ticket from JFK to Heathrow in 2013, but Kuwait Air refused, saying the laws of Kuwait prohibit its citizens from “entering into an agreement, personally or indirectly, with entities or persons residing in Israel, or with Israeli citizenship.”

According to USA Today, Kuwait Air’s lawyers argued the Department of Transportation was not authorized to enforce consumer-protection provisions against the airline, in violation of Kuwaiti law.

Gatt’s lawyer worried that the case could slog through years of litigation, if treated as an administrative enforcement action, asking for a U.S. District Court injunction against Kuwait Airways’ “reprehensible behavior” instead.

Although Kuwait Air gave up the fight against DOT on the New York-London route, the New York Times notes the airline’s three weekly non-stop flights between Kennedy International Airport and Kuwait City are unaffected, because “Israelis are not allowed to visit Kuwait and are not granted visas.”

The New York Times also mentions two formal complaints lodged with DOT against Qatar Airways and Saudi Arabian airlines. Saudi Arabia has a ban on visitors from Israel similar to the one in Kuwait.
