My Public School Education About Islam

Does it matter what our kids learn about Islam in public schools?

Published

on

Does it matter what our kids learn about Islam in public schools? Jenny McKeigue of Olmsted Falls, Ohio thinks so. This small town mother has battled her local school board for about four years to get them to remove parts of the curriculum that seem to promote Islam.

In 2012, McKeigue learned that her son had been shown a video in his seventh grade social studies class that she considered to be blatant Muslim propaganda. The video, an episode of the discontinued “30 Days” reality TV series, featured a “regular American” (the host’s terminology, not mine) spending thirty days immersing himself in the culture and faith of America’s most Muslim city—Dearborn, Michigan. The regular American’s name is Dave Stacy and according to the host he’s “a husband and father, a practicing Christian, and a red-blooded, beer-drinking, pork-eating American.” He also hails from (surprise!) West Virginia and strikes me as southern in his manner. Though Dave is not an actor, he plays the “role” of the provincial hayseed in need of reform.

The episode’s central message is that Americans are uncomfortable with Islam because they know so little about it. This snub may be what perturbed Jenny McKeigue so much; it certainly angered me. Those Americans who will admit to being uncomfortable with the rising Islamic tide are neither irrational nor uninformed. Wherever large Muslim communities take root, non-Muslims end up dying or at least having their rights curtailed because Islam will settle for nothing less than dominance. Dearborn is no exception. That reality was not expressed in the video and if it had been it would not have been screened in a public school.

The race is on to educate your children about Islam and the result will have great implications for the future. My personal experience, I believe, offers some insight into how education prepares (or fails to prepare) young adults for the world they live in.

In the fall of 1995 I was a high school freshmen looking to fill a hole in my class schedule and I stumbled upon a world history course from a good teacher who happened to be a very opinionated liberal. I learned a lot that year but not all of it was actually true.

One unit concerned itself with major world religions—Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and several eastern religions. I recall the portion on Christianity being the shortest and shallowest, which may have been because the teacher assumed we were already familiar with that religion—an unfounded assumption even twenty years ago. When the focus turned to Islam we learned about the five pillars of Islam, that Islam has two main denominations (Sunnis and Shiites), and that Islam considers Jesus to be a great prophet though not divine. The teacher taught us that Muslims invented algebra and the concept of zero, two “facts” that I later discovered to be falsehoods. Neither concept was truly “invented” and both pre-date Islam by centuries.

Then the teacher mentioned that Islam has a slight problem with radicalism. Although the vast majority of the world’s Muslims are peaceful, he explained, Islam has a few bad apples who give the religion a bad rap. He claimed that the bad apples are mostly Shiites and even within that subset they represent only a small minority. The lesson we were supposed to internalize is that every religion has its zealots. It hardly seemed fair that our society singled out one particular religion for scorn.

Three years later, al-Qaeda struck American embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam. I chalked it up to those few bad apples I’d heard about in class. In 2000, when I was a private in the Army, I learned that jihadists had blown a hole in the side of the USS Cole as it docked in Yemen. More bad apples.

Then came the mother of all terrorist attacks: 9/11. The only way I knew how to make sense of the slaughter was to refer to my ninth grade history course. I assumed that the attackers must have been Shiites (they weren’t) and that their cause and tactics were anathema to most Muslims. It took me years to discover just how wrong I was about this.

Unlike most Americans, I was not glued to my television in the hours and days after 9/11. The entire US military was on high alert and I had to stand guard in case of copycat attacks. Later on I heard that Muslims had been seen on television dancing in the streets. I hadn’t seen the revelry with my own eyes so I dismissed the story as a rumor. I found it difficult to accept that anyone would celebrate the attacks because it implied that the hijackers enjoyed at least some popular support, an idea that ran contrary to everything I had been told. But in fact it had happened—from East Jerusalem to New Jersey, Muslims rejoiced that the bully America had gotten her nose bloodied.

My “few bad apples” assumption also meant that I had no idea in the fall of 2001 just what a long and difficult struggle my country was undertaking. I believed that the vast majority of Muslims hated Osama bin Laden as much as I did and that most would gladly assist us in taking out their trash. I also assumed that the number of people we were going to war with was relatively small—perhaps a few hundred fighters holed up in the caves of Afghanistan. It wouldn’t take the world’s unchallenged superpower long to flush out a band of reprobates from Tora Bora, would it?

How wrong I was. Take Pakistan, for example, a country that almost certainly gave Osama bin Laden shelter. A 2007 poll found that 46% of Pakistanis had a favorable opinion of bin Laden and 43% had a favorable opinion of al-Qaeda. Almost half the population admires the late terror mastermind! Is it any wonder the country exploded with rage when we finally killed him? Osama bin Laden is very much a hero in the Muslim world, something like Nelson Mandela to black South Africans. Until we come to terms with this fact, we will never have a clear picture of the times we live in.

As the years went by I learned that this thing called the “War on Terror” was bigger than I could have imagined. It wasn’t just about hunting down a few guys in Afghan caves and we weren’t going to receive any assistance from that “vast majority” of Muslims I kept hearing about. Some Muslim countries offered their assistance, of course, though mostly because the US government has deep pockets. Some of those “allies” were also double-dealing, including Pakistan.

I’ve learned a lot in the fifteen years since 9/11. I was not surprised, for example, to learn that Belgian Muslims celebrated in the streets after last March’s terror attack in Brussels, or that Muslims refused to help Belgian police locate fugitive terrorists. It was like 9/11 all over again—many rejoiced in the carnage and none wanted to help the infidels root out the bad guys.

I have often wondered how my perceptions of the post-9/11 world might have been different if I had never taken that world history class. Might it have been better to be uninformed than partially misinformed? I don’t know. I do know, however, that the public schools could have better equipped me to understand the world that awaited me after graduation.

This is why it matters what we teach our children about Islam. A world religions unit in a high school history class might seem trivial but it’s all some people will ever learn about Islam. We’ve got to do better than we’ve been doing, with our ludicrous “bad apples” theory of Islamic terrorism and our constant drawing of false equivalences. Our lessons should not be polemical of course, because that would mean replacing pro-Islamic propaganda with anti-Islamic propaganda. But they should at least be honest. We’ve been lying to ourselves for at least twenty years about the extent of popular support that Muslim terrorists enjoy within their communities, and it’s time we stopped. We won’t stop telling that lie, of course, because without it we’d forced admit that there’s broader culpability for the scourge of Islamic terror.

We deliver meaningful conservative American news that is not your normal agenda based Beltway bull.

BREAKING: Warning Issued To All Americans Overnight Of ‘Mass Casualty’ Event Planned – Here’s What We Know

Published

on

America might be distracted with the problems at hand, but we never forget that we are a country at war. No matter what happens on a day to day basis, we always remember that we as a nation were violently attacked over sixteen years ago and it’s a score that we haven’t settled yet because terrorism hasn’t been wiped out.

The rise of the politically correct movement and it’s acceptance of “non-radical Muslims” has somehow allowed them to worm their way into many places that they shouldn’t be, such as government. That is especially troubling, considering that the threat from the Islamic faith and it’s admonitions to kill is, is far from past.

In fact, according to top administration officials, the smaller attacks that we’ve been seeing in recent months are just a ploy to keep their members appeased while they plan a 9/11 scale attack. Daily Mail  reports that one a U.S. security chief is warning not just all of us, but other countries as well, to be vigilant:

Islamic State fanatics and other terror groups are planning another massive attack on the scale of 9/11, a top US security chief warned today.

Elaine Duke, Donald Trump’s acting Secretary of Homeland Security, said jihadists were using crude knife and van attacks to keep their members engaged and their finances flowing as they plot another ‘big explosion’ similar to the September 2001 atrocities.

Speaking at the US embassy in London, she said intelligence is pointing to extremists plotting to take down planes to inflict mass civilian casualties.”

Elaine Duke, Donald Trump’s acting Secretary of Homeland Security

 

While the United States hasn’t suffered an attack on the same scale as 9/11 since that day, we have watched the terrorists grow both in number and boldness across the globe. Our war on terror in the Middle East might have overthrown some open leaders, but for every open leader that threatens the United States and is eliminated, there are three more willing to take his place in the “holy war crusade.”

“Mrs. Duke said ISIS is currently in an ‘interim’ period focusing on a much bigger endgame.

The security chief, who has served three US presidents, said: ‘The terrorist organisations, be it ISIS or others, want to have the big explosion like they did on 9/11. They want to take down aircraft, the intelligence is clear on that.

‘However, in the interim, they need to keep their finances flowing and they need to keep their visibility high and they need to keep their members engaged, so they are using small plots and they are happy to have small plots.’

She added: ‘Creating terror is their goal and so a van attack, a bladed weapon attack, causes terror and continues to disrupt the world – but does not mean they’ve given up on a major aviation plot.’”

Islamic State fanatics and other terror groups are planning another massive attack on the scale of 9/11, a top US security chief warned

If you’ve gone through airport security lately, you know that the Transportation Security Administration has cracked down on possible threats in a big way since way back in 2001 when we were first faced with this problem. The issue at hand is that no matter how much we increase security, human ingenuity increases with it.

According to Duke, who is President Trump’s acting Secretary of Homeland Security, there’s even a distinct possibility that any plan could be blown up using a laptop, and that’s just one of the many possibilities that she mentioned.

“She said the free movement of goods and people means security has to be tightened in individual countries around the world. 

She said: ‘The laptop is one of the many aviation threats, we will never be comfortable and we will always be evolving.

‘What we believe is that because of the movement of goods and people, we have to raise the baseline worldwide, we can’t only consider our borders.’ Mrs. Duke went on: ‘We think the level of terrorist threat against the United States too is extremely high.

‘I think that it is challenging for you because you have the proximities to other countries, the ease of movement from some of the terrorist safe havens is a little easier for you, but we feel the terrorist threat is very high in the United States.’”

The troubling thing about Duke’s statements isn’t “why or how,” but  when. She believes that another large-scale attack is going to be coming to us soon. We might not see it coming. This is the big reason that the United States, and other free countries like it, need to crack down on potential terrorists

This is the big reason that the United States, and other free countries like it, need to crack down on potential terrorists entering our countries. We can only be free if that freedom is respected; if we don’t protect the freedom, it will be taken either by those who want to kill us or those who want to control us. Either way, the freedom of living in America is a precious gift that is in jeopardy every single day.

Here’s more from our source on what is know about the possible impending attacks:

“Asked how the US is tackling the threat of another 9/11-style atrocity, she said: ‘We have worked on some strong measures that we can’t talk about. We are trying to play the away game and that is working against them in their terrorist safe havens and homes.

‘We do have some terrorist groups on the move, you just saw the take-over of Raqqa and so if we can keep them declining and moving they have less time to sit and prepare.’

Mrs. Duke warned that the number of home-grown violent extremists, mostly inspired by terrorist organisations, is increasing in the US. She said the ability of IS militants to put terrorist propaganda on the internet will appeal more and more to extremists as they are pushed out of Syria and Iraq.

Mrs. Duke said web giants need to do more to detect extremist content online, and one way of doing this could be using the same technology used to identify people in passenger lists.

‘Terrorists are strong, they are adaptable and the terrorist threat is the highest it has been since pre-9/11. We have got to have every tool that’s possible,’ she added.

A total of 2,996 people were killed during the September 11 attacks, when al-Qaeda suicide attackers hijacked planes and flew them into the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington.

Earlier in the day, she met the British interior minister Amber Rudd to discuss how to force internet giants to do more to tackle terrorism ahead of the G7 summit.

Following the recent wave of attacks in Manchester and London, police chiefs have said the threat facing the UK is a ‘new norm’ that will not change. 

Her chilling remarks came 24 hours after MI5 director general Andrew Parker warned Britain is facing its worst-ever terrorist threat in his first major speech since the UK was hit by a wave of attacks. 

The British spy chief said it was taking terrorists just days to hatch plots as violent extremists exploit ‘safe spaces online’ to evade detection. 

It is harder for the UK to protect itself because of its proximity to other countries and the ease of movement from terrorist safe havens, she suggested.”

Liberal Feminist Runs Off To Turkey To Marry Muslim Lover — Begs To Come Back After BRUTAL ‘Wedding Gift’

Published

on

Lacy MacAuley is a violent left-wing nut who helps organize Antifa Communist riots across America, and was featured in Project Veritas’ undercover video where she was one of the morons behind the violent disrupt protests during Trump’s inauguration. Just like every other brain dead moron on the left, MacAuley fell in love with Muslims and Islam and became obsessed with helping Muslim terrorists disguised as refugees, determined to prove to the world that Islam is a “religion of peace.”

But shortly after falling in love with a Muslim and moving with him to Turkey, her little world of unicorns and rainbows would soon be destroyed. Through her blog, she would go on to tell the world about the horrifying things her Muslim boyfriend put her through, describing the fear and hell she lived in as he began practicing Sharia Law on her, controlling her every move as he beat and raped her for going against his wishes.

Lacy MacAuley getting arrested during one of her violent little demonstrations

Here’s a few snippets from Lacy the Muslim lover’s blog. It’s quite entertaining to watch as her eyes are opened to the true meaning of Islam.

I am a radical activist based in Washington DC. I fell in love with an energetic, charismatic activist I met in November when I was present to write about resistance to the G20 Summit, a global event in Antalya, Turkey. After I came home to the US, we talked every day. He was lovely and charming, I thought at the time. He offered a ready smile, engaging kindness, and intelligent conversation. He said all the right things to convince me that he cared about women’s rights and activism. In February, I decided to return to Turkey with the promise of love driving me forward. I couldn’t have known things would turn sour.

The first two weeks were quite the love story. I observed that he was drinking heavily, and called him an “alky,” but it was just a joke at first. We went to the beach and historic sites, and he introduced me to his friends. All seemed to be going well, and I felt that the romance was solidly moving forward.

Then came our first fight. I had wanted to interview a local woman for an article on Syrian refugees. He did not approve. He knew the woman and did not like her, so he strictly forbade me from speaking with her. After I questioned his rationale, he yelled and stormed out of the room to go smoke a cigarette. I just stood in the middle of the room not knowing what to do. Of course, as a Western woman, no one had ever forbidden me from speaking with anyone else. It was a strange feeling: Don’t I have a mouth to speak? Why can I not use it as I wish?

Then MacAuley discusses her feminist background that would’ve prevented her from being with a Muslim had she known what they truly believe. But of course this lesson came too late, as she would soon learn:

This is elementary feminism. No man has the power to silence a woman, just because he is a man. How far backwards things would slide in the coming weeks.
What I found over the next few weeks was absolute frustration of my efforts to do my advocacy work. I had put myself in a place of dependence upon a person who, as it turned out, would have liked to keep me by his side and control my every move. He hindered, rather than helped, the work I tried to do there.

Hilariously, MacAuley would soon realize that people who criticize Islam are not bigots at all…as her life was transformed into a living hell with her Muslim boyfriend.
Things deteriorated rapidly. His insecurity and childishness got worse. In the following weeks, I was violently pushed, blocked from leaving freely, and repeatedly told not to speak. If I spoke anyway, anger erupted. I endured threats that I would be burnt with cigarettes, flinching as he “faked” with his lit cigarette. I had to duck to avoid having sharp objects thrown at my face. I had water angrily poured over my head.

Unwanted sex? Rape? All the time. He did not stop to determine whether I consented to sex. Several times, he turned off my wifi and lied about it, a modern-day form of gaslighting. He verbally criticized me for using social media, my main link to the rest of my life back in the US, and tried to discourage me from using it. He forced me to unfriend one Turkish man on Facebook, and wanted me to unfriend many more.

MacAuley then went into detail how she was victimized by other Muslims, and jailed by Turkish police because she was a journalist from America.

Two days later, however, I was jailed by Turkish police for several hours when I tried to simply enter a large public speech in Antalya by the president of Turkey. (They make a habit of jailing reporters and activists, and I didn’t look like I fit their norms. I wrote about this experience with the Turkish police here.) I had an “out of the frying pan and into the fire” sensation.

What’s even more ironic is even after MacAuley’s up close and personal experience with true Islam, she is still in denial. No matter how many times she was beaten and raped by her Muslim boyfriend, she still manages to believe that he believes in women’s rights, going on to state on her blog that he still “saw the silver lining in her activism.”

This story just goes to prove that liberalism truly is a mental disorder. This idiotic woman will still continue to push for left-wing totalitarianism. Too bad that Turkish prison couldn’t have kept her locked up a little longer. Sounds like MacAuley still has a long way to go before she finally wakes from her fantasy world of unicorns and rainbows!

Muslims Just Took Over Entire U.S. Town – Look What They Are Forcing Everyone To Do And Nobody Can Stop It

This is beyond disturbing!

Published

on

American Muslims have a systematic 20-year plan for infiltrating our country and taking it over from within. In addition to expanding their presence in our country by out-breeding us and through massive immigration, other tactics include using political correctness to bully their will onto Americans, while infiltrating every facet of our society to include the highest levels of our government. Now well on their way with their 7-phase plan, Muslims have now taken over an entire U.S. town and are ramming Sharia down the throats of Americans. And disturbingly, there’s not a single thing that anyone can do to stop it.

After years and years of fighting, 39 public hearings, and even the involvement of the Department of Justice, Bernards Township in New Jersey has just lost their long fight with Muslims trying to overtake their town with the construction of a mega-mosque that was against city codes. So predictably, Muslims decided to fight it out in court through their local Islamic Society, while screaming they were discriminated against.

Disturbingly, not only did the Muslims win in court with suing the small town, but now Bernards Township will be forced to pay out a startling  $1.5 million in damages to the Islamic society and $1.75 million in attorneys’ fees and litigation expenses which will now conveniently cover the entire cost to build New Jersey Muslims’ mega mosque, which will span over almost 4.1 acres of property.

Conservative Daily Post Reported:

“A New Jersey township that stopped an Islamic society from building a mosque will pay the group $3.25 million, ending a multi-year battle that spanned 39 public hearings and included allegations of anti-Muslim animus.

Terms of the agreement were made public Tuesday, about a week after Bernards Township voted to settle lawsuits brought last March by the Islamic Society of Basking Ridge and in November by the Justice Department.

The settlement will completely devastate the local budget of the small town, but that doesn’t seem to faze the lawyers who have fought on behalf of these Muslims, as this mosque will now be completely funded by the local community. This is disturbingly a pattern that this group has used in the past to threaten other communities facing similar actions. Muslim  Adeel A. Mangi who led the charge in court just gave a huge middle finger to all Americans, saying that his group has unlimited resources to continue battling similar cases in court.

“Municipalities around the country should pay close attention to what happened in Bernards Township. The American Muslim community has the legal resources, the allies, and the determination to stand up for its constitutional rights in court and will do so.

Mohammad Ali Chaudry, president of the Islamic Society of Basking Ridge who led the lawsuit against the town along with Adeel A. Mangi

Muslims’ tactic to force their will onto these small towns is by simply dragging the town through extended court cases, where towns will then be forced to pay them off in form of settlements. Local authorities in this case had a very valid reason for turning down the construction of this mosque, as it violated their building codes and local laws. This had absolutely nothing to do with discrimination, as a local board member pointed out:

“Township spokesman Michael P. Turner said in a statement that rejection of the proposed mosque “was based on accepted land use criteria only.” He added that the township also denies the board’s decision was discriminatory.

“The decision to accept the ISBR’s terms and the DOJ’s offer was not made lightly,” Turner added. “However, in our opinion and that of our legal counsel, settling represents the most effective path forward to mitigate the financial risk of protracted litigation as well as resolve the issue of the ISBR’s proposed house of worship in Liberty Corner.

Except for the deductible, insurers will cover the settlement payment without spending taxpayer funds, he said.”

Another massive win for Muslims as they continue to use the tool of political correctness to invade our country. Their mosque plans being turned down had absolutely nothing to do with discrimination, but simply the building and zoning codes of this town. While it’s insane that these idiots constantly place themselves above our laws, what’s even more disturbing is how quickly these liberal judges will continue to rule on behalf of these Muslims, all too eager to cave into their asinine demands. As Americans, we have to continue to shine a light on what’s going on, as these Muslims are rapidly gaining ground to establish their Islamic caliphate in our country.
