Allah in our schools
Students are taught the five pillars of Islam.
Students recite “all people must submit to Allah,” “there is no God but Allah,” and “Allah is great,” among other Muslim prayers. Sometimes students recite these words in Arabic. Students also recite the Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic, saying: “One nation under Allah.”
Lesson plans promote Sharia law, polygamy, and burqas.
Classes unrelated to history or religion often morph into Islamic propaganda.
A Saudi-funded 3-week program on Islam has students living as Muslims, during which time, among other things, they recite Muslim prayers and chants and are prohibited from wearing a cross or saying the name “Jesus.”
Students are taught that Muslims worship the same God as Christians and Jews.
Students must write about how, if they were a travel agent, they would create a travel package promoting the Golden Age of Islam.
Textbooks include the Muslim call to prayer, whitewash Islam, denigrate Christians and Jews, and describe Muhammad as a wise spiritual leader; a gentle merchant with a strong moral compass; and a man who was deeply concerned about the mistreatment of others.
Student field trips bring them to mosques where students are given Korans, kneel down and pray to Allah, and are told that Muslims treat those they conquer better than minorities are treated in the United States. One field trip was to the mosque the Tsarnaev brothers attended, where non-Muslim boys joined adult males in prayer and girls were told Islam is pro-woman (among other egregious things).
A curriculum used a video that framed non-Muslims as bigots and enforced blasphemy laws.
Lessons teach more about Islam than any other faith.
Students must write essays about what it would be like to travel to Mecca.
Fill-in-the-blank assignments include answers that read: “Islam, at heart, is a peaceful religion” and “Most Muslims faith is stronger than the average Christian,” among other lies.
Korans are introduced into the classroom.
Muslim clerics, members of CAIR, and representatives from Islamic centers come into classrooms to observe and/or lecture.
Female students wear burqas as part of a lesson on Islam.
Lessons teach that terrorists must be called freedom fighters.
Students are required to study Arabic.
A teacher is forced to resign after making critical statements about Obama and Islam on a talk radio program. CAIR accuses a teacher of being a “racist” because she drew an analogy between the Taliban and Hamas during lessons on bullying. Christian teachers are harassed by Muslims in the school hierarchy.
Muslim students are given special privileges that students of other faiths are not afforded, including several times during the school day when they are allowed to leave the classroom to pray.
Muslim holidays are added to school calendars.
