U.S. Department of Education has been promoting Islam for years
April 1, 2017
The U.S. Department of Education has proselytized in our public schools on behalf Islam for many years through its “Access Islam” program. Federally funded, it is directed at children in grades 5 through 12. The Christian Action Network recently demanded that President Trump’s recently confirmed Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos, terminate the program.
According to an article at Breitbart, a predecessor program began during the Bush administration in 2005. It
“simply taught students about the traditions, culture, and holidays of Islam. Then, it became greatly expanded under the Obama administration. It has continued to develop, and now has had a greater, broader outreach.”
According to the linked Breitbart article, “Access Islam” is not only funded by DOE. It is also
“being promoted on various websites,” Martin Mawyer, president and founder of CAN, tells Breitbart News. “So, PBS Learning Media is one of the websites that is promoting it. The Smithsonian also promotes it, the Indiana Department of Education promotes it, and even the United Nations promotes it.”
Here is the blurb following the video:
The United States Department of Education has developed an Islamic indoctrination program for public schools called, ‘Access Islam.’
The lesson plans are written for grades 5 through 12. They include worksheets and videos to help students perform the 5 Pillars of Islam – prayer, fasting, alms giving, pilgrimage to Mecca and the proclamation of Muslim faith. [Emphasis added.”
This short video contains excerpted clips taken from the “Access Islam’ program which not only teaches children how to perform a Muslim prayer, but asks students such questions as: ‘What does a Muslim prayer sound like?’ ‘What do the movements look like?’ and ‘What are some of the things Muslims say during prayer?’
Children are also expected to memorize verses from the Quran and give the meaning of those verses.
Taken as a whole, the U.S. Department of Education’s ‘Access Islam’ program is nothing short of a Sunday school class on Islam.
DOE provides no even remotely comparable promotion of any other religion. Nor should it, because for any federal (or for that matter state) agency to do so is inconsistent with the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Here is a video of an interview with the founder of the Christian Action Network:
President Reject Obama’s affinity for Islam — “the religion of peace” which shall not be spoken of truthfully and whose prophet shall not be “slandered” — got us into this mess along with many others.
Will any of the many major “civil rights” organizations with which America is “blessed” take legal action against state entities which use Access Islam? They have been quite active in opposing even the display of Nativity scenes and the Ten Commandments on public property.
When will Betsy DeVos, President Trump’s recently confirmed Secretary of Education, repudiate the “Access Islam” promotion and insist that all video and other presentations of related materials it provided be returned? The DOE apparently remains a big swamp, very much in need of draining.
Public School Lab Turns Into A Mosque, Denies Entry To Non-Muslims
Mar 29, 2017
Next to Britain and European Union, Canada is the other western country being neutered by Islam. The left is vehement when it comes to no religion in school. Then comes Islam and the left couldn’t wait to switch from burning their bra into putting a burqa, turn schools into mosques and teach children how to pray to the Muslim allah. What a mental retard.
( Milo ) A Canadian public school is facing criticism after allegedly turning its computer lab into a “mini mosque” and denying entry to non-Muslim students.
Rebel Media reporter David Menzies says he attended a meeting hosted by a parental advocacy group concerned about the school’s decision.
At that meeting, Menzies met a mother who immigrated to Canada “so she and her family could enjoy” freedoms, only to those freedoms trampled upon.
“Last week when I was having a chat with one of the fellow parents in my community, she mentioned to me that their daughter’s class was stopped outside the computer lab,” she said.
“They couldn’t get to the computer lab. The reason was that prayer was going on inside the computer lab and they had to wait for a half hour.”
The woman went on to claim that her own daughter is being discriminated against because she doesn’t “dress up” like Muslim students.
Disturbingly, the woman also claimed that her daughter approached her last month and asked, “mom, why do you pray to God when God doesn’t love you?”
When pressed for an explanation, the woman’s daughter reportedly stated, “well, God loves only Muslims” and cited a friend whose mother had communicated that message.
The woman goes on to ask if this behavior is “in accordance with Canadian values” or if “we are just turning a blind eye to Islamification of our Canadian values.”
