Islamic official arrested, more
U.S. education personnel exposed
By Jennifer Shroder
Federal agents recently
arrested Bassam K. Khafagi, Community Affairs Director of the national
office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Khafagi was
apprehended during a widening terrorist investigation. Khafagi was
also working as a teaching assistant at the University of Idaho.
Federal agents in another
case arrested Professor Sami Al-Arian of the University of South
Florida. Al-Arian is charged with illegally raising money for the
terrorist organization Palestinian Islamic Jihad, which authorities
say is responsible for the murders of more than 100 people in the
Middle East, including two Americans. Matt Epstein, Fox News terrorist
" They were openly running the
Palestinian Islamic Jihad from Tampa, Florida. This is a man whose
evilness shows no bounds and whose duplicity is what's unbelievably
shocking in the American public."
Nader F. Darehshori,
CEO/President of Houghton Mifflin, was replaced 7 months after
protests began over the indoctrination of Islam in our children's
textbooks. Darehshori previously taught elementary school in Iran. He
began work for HM in 1989 and became President in 1991 when the
textbook made its debut.
Simultaneous to the rise of
Darehshori, in 1990 the Council on Islamic Education was founded.
Shabbir Mansuri of the CIE states they conduct in-service workshops
for schools, districts and organizations, and participates in annual
education conferences. We are being spoonfed a deceptive version of
Islam through multiple levels of our education system.
Houghton Mifflin wrote on their website a response to textbook
criticism. They denied contributions by the Council on Islamic
Education (CIE) in the textbook:
"Did the CIE or any other
religious group contribute to the writing of either “A Message of
Ancient Days” or “Across the Centuries”?
"No, the scope of their involvement was limited to reviewing the
This is contradictory to what
Abigail Jungreis, Editorial Director of Houghton Mifflin stated in an
earlier article for Soundvision:
" '[CIE] reviewers are
knowledgeable, an access to primary source materials.'
It is also with the help of
the CIE that Jungreis says Houghton Mifflin's textbooks have been able
to show what Crusades were like for the Muslims. '
We've been able to give
several perspectives on an event like that,' she says. 'We see our
reviewers as playing a crucial role in enabling us to present accurate
and complete information,' she notes.' "
textbook never admitted that the Crusade section was the Muslim
perspective, it was written as fact. This explains why the Christian
section is Islam’s “perspective” on Christ as well.
Soundvision also instructs Muslims how to make Islam converts of our
"Schools students are
routinely exposed in their classroom to new information and opinions,
hence they tend to be more receptive to new beliefs and ideas. Schools
are therefore fertile grounds where the seeds of Islam can be sowed
inside the hearts of non-Muslim students."
"Remember, It was always Muslim creativity, Iman and the help of Allah
that has constantly won victories for the Muslims, and schools and
campuses won't be any exceptions."
promotes a peaceful version of Islam’s beliefs to textbook publishers,
state education officials and policymakers, curriculum developers, and
teachers. They have published many supplemental books pedaling a
diluted Islam, which are used in American schools today. Islam has
stealthily infiltrated our public schools and is actively seeking to
induct our children.
Do we hate American Muslims?
NO. But must we teach our children to assume they are Muslim
soldiers? Must we present a violent religion as one of peace and
gentleness? Must we present Muhammad's claimed spiritual awakening
and role as Prophet as FACT to impressionable American children, while
reducing Jesus Christ to a “popular teacher”? Muhammad, who led more
than 20 slaughtering raids killing Jews and Christians, and
masterminded more than 60 others. Do we present a deceptive version
of what Muhammad wrote as interesting and fun practices of imagination
for children to embrace?
- Only if we want our sons and
daughters to share a jail cell with John Walker Lindh. Instead of a
jail cell, he should receive an "A" in today's American classroom.
After all, California's textbook instructed him to "Assume you are a
Muslim soldier." Lindh could turn in his whole ordeal with the Taliban
as an expansive, though late, class project. He did what his teachers
taught him. He lived what they told him to assume.
