Can't Teach the Ten Commandments in School - But OK to Teach 5 Pillars of Islam?

Written by JihadWatch.org


An Ongoing problem - Do you know what they are teaching YOUR children?  

"California schools are pushing an unbalanced religious agenda that favors Islam and minimizes Christianity and Judaism," Accuracy in Academia warns in its latest Campus Report.

Christianity isn't given equal time, either. It's covered in just two days - as opposed to up to two weeks for Islam - and doesn't involve kids in any role-playing activities like the Islam unit.

The stealth jihad to whitewash Islam and propagate it in the public schools still continues. "Schoolhouse Shariah," from Investor's Business Daily, September 24 article (thanks to Allyson):

Multiculturalism: California's educrats have put out new rules for teaching Islamic studies to seventh-graders in public schools, and they are as biased as ever. They'll also likely spread eastward.

The lesson guidelines adopted by the bellwether state whitewash the violence and oppression of women codified in Islamic law, or Shariah. And they're loaded with revisionist history about the faith.

For example, the suggested framework glorifies Shariah as a liberal reform movement that "rejected" the mistreatment of women that existed in Arabia before Muhammad and his successors conquered the region, according to Accuracy in Academia. The guidelines claim that Islamic law established for the first time that men and women were entitled to equal "respect."

Sounds as if Dalia Mogahed could have written that!

Not so, says Islamic scholar and author Nonie Darwish, who grew up Muslim in Egypt.

"I am shocked that that is what they teach," she said. "Women had more rights in Arabia before Shariah."

[If Islam is to be "taught" in the public school system, then perhaps they need to teach the whole truth.  According to sources such as the BBC, Amnesty International and the United Nations:

"at least 1,000 women stoned to death over the past 15 years in countries such as Iran, Nigeria, Somalia, Sudan, Iraq, United Arab Emirates, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.

In 2008, a 13-year-old Somali girl was stoned by 50 men in a football stadium in front of a crowd of 1,000 spectators. According to BBC reports, the mob buried her up to her shoulders while she begged for her life, pleading "don't kill me, don't kill me." Eleven people in Iran, nine of them women, were waiting to be stoned to death for adultery last year, according to Amnesty International. The United Nations estimates that 5,000 women each year become victims of "honor crimes" in which family members kill a woman who has allegedly brought dishonor on them."

California's course on world religions also omits Islam's long history of jihadist violence, while portraying Christianity as an intolerant and bloodthirsty faith....

You can't teach the Ten Commandments in public schools. But teaching the five pillars of Islam is A-OK.

[Get involved, demand access to all the textbooks being used in your childs' classroom; when you find material that promotes Islam or teaches inaccuracies about the ideology protest to the teacher, the Principal and especially the school board.  Write letters to your local newspaper and broadcast media exposing this blatant attempt to indoctrinate children.  Do not allow public schools to forget they are accountable to the parents, NOT to Washington,D.C., and certainly NOT to violent, intolerant Islam.  Stop the lies from being taught as truth.

"You may call a pen a knife for a thousand years, but it remains a pen. . .  You may say that Islam is a religion of peace, but that does not make it true either."  Nonie Darwish ~ Memri TV Interview]
