Three and a half years ago, sixth-graders from Wellesley Middle School were herded on a field trip to the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center mosque. There they were subjected to proselytism by Muslims, enlightened on the equal status of women in Islamic culture even during Mohammed’s time (ha!), and urged to pray the Islamic conversion prayer to Allah.
But rest assured, there is no attempt to Islamize America as there has been, and successfully, in Europe. I assume all the liberals and atheists so rabid about a “separation of church and state” already know this, however, judging by their lack of silence on the matter.
Recently, students from Hendersonville High School, of Tennessee, were brought to a mosque as part of a three-week comparative-religion course. They were not brought to a church or a synagogue or whatever it is Hindus and Buddhists pray in; they were brought to a mosque.
The principal of the school defended the decision by saying they couldn’t afford to go to other places of worship. But if a school were interested in teaching about all religions, would they not have at least invited representatives from other religions to the school?
One student’s parents did not permit her to go on the field trip, so she was told by her teacher to write a paper instead that compares Hinduism, Christianity, and Islam. According to her father, however, “There was one page on the sayings of Jesus, two-thirds of a page on the sayings of Gandhi, and five pages on Muhammed.”
In apology, the school has now revised their policy and decided to “eliminate field trips to religious venues from this class, as it does not provide equal representation to all the religions studied in the course unit.” This is always what happens after government agents, dubbed “teachers,” are caught pushing Islam: the teacher or the principle says he is sorry and that it won’t happen again—but by then, the deed has already been done. They know that they can keep pulling this crap as long as they follow it up with an apology and a promise to desist.
“Dawa” is the word for what amounts to Islamic evangelism. A website called DawaNet.com states that “schools are fertile grounds where the seeds of Islam can be sowed inside the hearts of non-Muslim students.”
But rest assured, there is no attempt to Islamize America. At least, “Islamize” is not the proper word, of course. The state merely wishes to foster “sensitivity” and “understanding.”
If you want your children to be inculcated into the rich, vibrant culture and unwavering, rock-solid faith of Islam, and to sing the praises of Islam’s holy-warring founder with the kindergarten-aged wife, enroll them in a government-run school. The all-knowing, ever-present state will make sure they get the education that you don’t know they need.
