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.”

France to Shut Illegal Mosques, “Staggering” Number of Weapons & Ammo Found

Source: France to Shut Down up to 160 Mosques h/t Dee

In the wake of the November 13 Paris terrorist attacks that claimed more than 130 lives, the French government is ordering up to 160 mosques to be shut down in the coming months. Raids have revealed large stashes of weapons and ammunition.

The government’s emergency powers grant it the right to take this extraordinary measure, and mosques that are unlicensed or have a history of “preaching hatred” are being singled out.

One of France’s chief imams, Hassan El Alaoui, said last Wednesday, “According to official figures and our discussions with the interior ministry, between 100 and 160 more mosques will be closed because they are run illegally without proper licenses, they preach hatred, or use takfiri speech.” Takfiri speech involves sectarian slurs leveled by one Muslim against fellow Muslims.

“This kind of speech shouldn’t even be allowed in Islamic countries, let alone secure countries like France,” El Alaoui said.

Meanwhile, several of these mosques have been raided, revealing a “staggering” number of weapons and ammunition. Sunday, authorities conducted a raid on a mosque in Lagny-sur-Marne, 18 miles east of Paris, and uncovered 334 weapons and a large quantity of 7.62mm Kalashnikov ammunition, along with ISIS propaganda videos.

Police also turned up recordings of chants “glorifying the martyrs of jihad linked to the terrorist organization Jabhat al-Nusra,” the Syrian branch of Al-Qaeda. The chants were found among teaching materials for youth in a madrassa, or private religious school for boys, connected to the mosque. According to the prefecture of police, “No request was made to open a private school.”

Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said, “In 15 days we have seized one third of the quantity of war-grade weapons that are normally seized in a year.”

As a result, 232 Muslims have been taken into custody and nine placed on house arrest. It’s the third mosque since the November 13 attacks to be shut down, with many more expected in the future. Muslim-owned businesses and homes are also being searched, with 2,235 raided so far.

Although this story has not been widely reported, it should further fuel debate about the nature of Islam and the effects of wide-scale Muslim migration into the West. This has been a major topic recently, with presidential contender Donald Trump suggesting that Muslim immigration should be suspended until we can “figure out what’s going on.”

And with the West being awash in relativism — and its correlative religious-equivalence doctrine, stating that all religions are morally equal — broaching this topic brings accusations of bigotry and “Islamophobia.” But Truth doesn’t bend to political correctness, and there’s certainly something “going on.” Consider, for instance, a German study released in 2010 and which involved 45,000 young people. It found that while increasing religiosity among Christian youths made them less violent, increasing religiosity among Muslim ones actually made them more violent.

And anecdotes to this effect abound. The Daily Telegraph reports today about 18-year-old Australian convert to Islam Alo-Bridget Namoa, who is allegedly now a supporter of Da’esh (ISIS), prays five times daily to Allah, and has said referring to herself and her Muslim husband, “I want to do an Islamic Bonnie and Clyde on the kaffir” (non-Muslim). The Daily Mail told the story yesterday of 33-year-old U.S. Army deserter and Muslim convert Daniel Seth Franey of Montesano, Washington, “who called Osama bin Laden ‘a beautiful man,’ made pro-Islamic State statements and called for the death of American troops,” the paper related. Then there was convert “John T. Booker Jr., 21, an American citizen also known as Mohammed Abdullah Hassan, …who vowed to ‘bring the Islamic State straight to your doorstep’ [and] pleaded guilty Wednesday to attempting to detonate a car bomb at Fort Riley military base in Kansas,” wrote CNN Feb. 4. And just two days before that, the Associated Press reported that North Carolina convert Justin Nojan Sullivan, 19, had “killed his neighbor and stole the man’s money so he could buy an assault rifle to carry out an Islamic State-inspired shooting at a concert or club”; Sullivan believed he could murder 1,000 people in his attack. Critics have dubbed these happenings “Sudden Jihad Syndrome,” and nary a week goes by — and maybe not even a day — without an instance of one occurring.

But while this phenomenon can seem sudden, it’s not new. As Professor Thomas F. Madden, chair of the Department of History at Saint Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri, wrote in his 2002 essay “The Real History of the Crusades”:

While Muslims can be peaceful, Islam was born in war and grew the same way. From the time of Mohammed, the means of Muslim expansion was always the sword. Muslim thought divides the world into two spheres, the Abode of Islam and the Abode of War. Christianity — and for that matter any other non-Muslim religion — has no abode. Christians and Jews can be tolerated within a Muslim state under Muslim rule. But, in traditional Islam, Christian and Jewish states must be destroyed and their lands conquered.

Minnesota: Muslim Airport Worker Pleads Guilty in Islamic State Case

Source: Minnesota Man Pleads Guilty in Islamic State Case | KSTP TV – Minneapolis and St. Paul

A Minnesota man has pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State group.

Twenty-year-old Abdirizak Mohamed Warsame entered his plea at a hearing Thursday in U.S. District Court.

Warsame admitted he tried to help other young men from Minnesota’s Somali community with their plans to travel to Syria to fight for the Islamic State group.

Warsame also boasted of being able to take down a plane at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Warsame says he learned about the Islamic State group by watching videos on YouTube and listening to lectures. He faces up to 15 years in prison when he is sentenced at a later date.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS spoke to Warsame’s mother, Deqa Hussen. She called today “amazing,” praising her son for telling the truth.

“He’s a nice kid and maybe he made a mistake,” Hussen said. “I commanded my son to tell the truth, and he did.”

In court, Warsame opened up about how he started his quest to join the Islamic State in 2014. The 20-year-old told the judge that if he made it overseas, he was aware he might be involved with beheadings and killing.

Warsame admitted to studying the Islamic State extensively and felt it was his duty to help people in need struggling with oppression. But since he was charged, Warsame told the judge that his opinions have changed because “too many innocent people are dying”.

Nine other members of that group were charged previously; one is believed to be in Syria and three have already pleaded guilty.

Five others are scheduled to go to trial in May. On Thursday, the five men appeared in court briefly for a motion hearing where the judge denied all but one motion.


[He] once boasted that he was capable of building rockets that could threaten planes landing at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, and that he once worked there as a baggage handler.


What about his mosque?

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.

Univ of Iowa converting offices into gender-segregated mosques for Muslim Brotherhood students

As we noted previously, the Islamic call to prayer can already be heard in Arabic on the University of Iowa campus.

Source: UI creating prayer rooms primarily for Muslim students h/t Bare Naked Islam

The University of Iowa is re-configuring two former offices in the Iowa Memorial Union to serve as full-time prayer spaces that primarily will serve the university’s Muslim faculty, staff and students.

The decision, made late last year, comes in response to a long-standing request from the university’s Muslim Student Association to offer a centrally located space in which the growing number of Muslims on campus can complete their daily religious obligations.

“The necessity had been well established for a while,” said Tom Rocklin, UI’s vice president for student life. “It was more a question of when the opportunity to do something came up.”

Motier Haskins, faculty adviser for UI’s Muslim Student Association, described the two new prayer rooms — located in Rooms 206 and 208 of the IMU — as a “step in the right direction.”

“(They are) two small but newly carpeted and painted rooms, one for men and one for women located, centrally in the IMU with 24/7 access,” he said.

Each of the rooms provides space for between 15 and 20 people assembling for joint prayer, said Mohammed Ismail, a biochemistry major and event coordinator for the UI Muslim Student Association.

“We’ve very happy what they gave us,” Ismail said. “It’s a big place for the moment, but we may see a need for a bigger room in the future.”

Haskins, a UI clinical associate professor of social work, has tried to find a more permanent prayer site for UI’s Muslim population since he came to the university in 2007. Around that time, UI administrators made Danforth Chapel available for daily prayers, which Haskins said initially seemed an ideal solution.

But after a handful of gatherings, it became obvious the chapel, with benches, an altar and a cross, was anything but a “neutral” religious space. It simply wasn’t going to work for a group whose members spread out rugs and blankets to sit, kneel and stand on during prayers.

A chapel with crosses and other non-Muslim symbols simply wasn’t sharia compliant.

Many Muslim students, faculty and staff report feeling tension on campus as they seek discrete places in which to offer their five daily prayers, at dawn, noon, afternoon, sunset and night.

Rocklin said that Danforth Chapel continues to be used by a number of other religiously-focused student organizations, and the new prayer rooms will be available to all students as well.

“These rooms are certainly going to be used primarily by Muslim students, but they’re not limited to be used by Muslim students,” Rocklin said.

Haskins said the next challenge will be to locate a larger space for the weekly congregational prayers on Fridays.

The national Muslim Student Association has been working for years with campus organizations to seek various accommodations at public universities across the country.


Islamic Supremacy 1o1 as executed to perfection by the Muslim Brotherhood. The MSA was founded by the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Muslim Students Association of the United States and Canada, or MSA (also known as MSA National), was established mainly by members of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) in January 1963 at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Nyack College theologian Larry A. Poston writes that “many of the founding members of this agency [MSA] were members of, or had connections to,” the Muslim Brotherhood or Jamaat-i-Islami. The three most significant founders of MSA were Hisham al Talib, Jamal Barzinji, and Ahmed Totanji, and all of whom were MB leaders of Iraqi descent. Other noteworthy individuals who served as early co-founders of MSA were Mahboob Khan and Malika Khan.

The creation of MSA resulted from Saudi-backed efforts to establish Islamic organizations internationally in the 1960s, for the purpose of spreading its Wahhabist ideology across the globe.

At least 40 “Americans” actively waging jihad with Muslim terror group Al Shabaab

“American recruits principally come from Minnesota, there’s also a small band of recruits constantly coming from Maryland, and other states…”

All-American boys no doubt. via: African terror group Al Shabaab finds American recruits to aid jihad missions

There are at least 40 Americans – far more than previously believed – actively serving in the Islamist terror group Al Shabaab, including dozens of radicalized killers from Minnesota’s prominent Somali-American community, experts told Fox News.

Approximately 40 Americans are actively serving in the ranks of the Al Qaeda-linked terrorist group responsible for dozens of attacks and hundreds of deaths in East Africa, multiple experts confirmed. The number is at least 10 times previous estimates, and underscores a grim radicalization threat that has operated largely in the shadow of ISIS’ recruiting.

“In Minnesota, you have a very large Somali-American community, so Al Shabaab is attracted to potential recruits there,” said David Ibsen, executive director of the U.S.-based Counter Extremism Project, a nonprofit co-founded by former Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn. “They have the ethnic, national ties, and they can feed on first-generation or immigrant individuals, feelings maybe of aloofness or being disaffected or marginalized, and can entice them to come back to their home country to have a sense of belonging.  Quite frankly, have adventure.”

Americans in Al-Shabaab fill a variety of different positions, whether it’s recruiting, leadership, commandos, suicide bombers.”

– David Ibsen, Counter Extremism Project

American recruits are mostly in Somalia and Kenya, fighting for the U.S.-designated terror group behind the September 2013 attack at the Westgate Shopping Center in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi, where 67 people were killed and more than 175 wounded. The group also is suspected of causing an explosion aboard a passenger jet over Somalia Tuesday which killed one and forced an emergency landing.

Omar Shafik Hammami, an Alabama-born radical who joined Al Shabaab in 2006 and adopted the nom de guerre Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki, was one of the highest-profile Americans in the terrorist group before fellow fighters executed him in 2013 for what they considered his selfish pursuit of glory. Another American, Jehad Serwan Mostafa, or Anwar al-Amriki, is a commander in the terror group and is believed to specialize in the training of foreign recruits.

 

 

Canada to build Muslim refugee camps on military bases complete with mosques, Korans, prayer mats

via: Liberals to build refugee camps on Canadian military bases — taxpayers will fund mosques, Korans – The Rebel

The Canadian military has been ordered by Justin Trudeau’s Liberals to draft plans to house more than 6,000 Muslim migrants on a long-term basis at military bases, according to documents obtained exclusively by The Rebel (see below.)

Included in the Department of National Defence budgets are hundreds of thousands of dollars set aside for “religious support,” including the purchase of Muslim Korans, prayer mats and foot-washing towels.

The plans also call for the construction of mosques or “worship centres,” using taxpayers dollars.

The planning documents, in English and French, were released in response to a Rebel “Access to Information” request about religious expenditures by the Department of National Defence.

But the detailed Quebec budget plans also shed light on the sheer scale of the Trudeau government’s plans to set up refugee camp-style accommodations on seven Canadian Forces Bases across Quebec and Ontario.

The budget for Quebec alone totals more than $46 million for the first six months.

For a typical migrant family, that’s a $200,000/year subsidy — not including medicare or welfare.

It’s shocking that Canadian Armed Forces personnel will be ordered to abandon the coalition battle against ISIS and return to Canada to become waiters, chauffeurs and social workers for Muslim migrants, and that Canadian Forces Bases will be turned into squalid refugee camps.

It’s a disgrace that Canadian military personnel have been sent eviction notices to make way for foreign migrants.

But for the DND’s budget to be diverted away from military purposes and towards buying Korans and building mosques for foreign migrants, is especially outrageous.
