United States Department of Education ISIS Islamic Indoctrination

  The Volusia County Republican Party says that the federal government is promoting Islam to public school children. "The United States Department of Education has introduced an Islamic indoctrination program for the public schools, called ‘Access Islam,’" states the mass email sent by the party April 2.

 The email said that classroom instructions have students learning "the core duties of Muslims" and "what it means to proclaim faith or belief as a Muslim."

"The Education Department offers no similar learning material for Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism or any other major world religion. Just Islam," the email said.

 

Teaching Islam

To support its claims, the party points to a March 28 video by the Christian Action Network, a group that says its goal is to "protect America’s religious and moral heritage through educational efforts."

The video, narrated by network founder Martin Mawyer, criticizes Access Islam, a program produced by PBS’ Thirteen/WNET New York. The program received grant money from the federal government about a decade ago.

The network recently sent a letter to Education Secretary Betsy DeVos asking her to denounce the program and remove it from any government website.

We looked at several of the lesson plans and videos from Access Islam, which draws from the PBS series Religion and Ethics Newsweekly.

Much of the content provides educational information about religious traditions and holidays. Other video segments explained the tensions between Somali Muslim immigrants and other residents in Maine; how students learn in a madrassah, and the challenges faced by Muslims to differentiate themselves from terrorists.

Lesson plans include facts such as that Muslims pray five times a day, cultural variations and what the First Amendment says about religion.

It’s unclear how many schools have used the materials, and there is certainly no requirement that schools do. Mawyer told PolitiFact he found a few examples including the state of Indiana, which listed Access Islam in a resource guide for teachers of world history. The guide includes a disclaimer that the Indiana department hasn’t evaluated the materials which "are not intended to represent the best or only approach to any particular issue."

In Florida, high school history standards include lessons about Islam such as a comparison of Islam, Judaism and Christianity and key developments in Islamic history.

The Florida Department of Education said whether to use Access Islam is a decision for local school districts.

Access Islam is not part of the resource list given to Volusia County Schools World History teachers however teachers can choose their own resources as long as they conforms to the standards, a district spokesperson said.

Broward, Pinellas and Hillsborough school districts don’t use the Access Islam curriculum, district spokespersons said.

The U.S. Education Department granted $166,000 in fiscal year 2005 and $8,000 in fiscal year 2006 for the program, but we could find no recent involvement by the department. In case there was any tinge of partisan politics, the grants came while George W. Bush, a Republican was president. Spokespersons for the department and PBS did not respond to our questions by our deadline.

 Experts to review the Access Islam materials and all said they did not consider the materials to be "indoctrination": Linda K. Wertheimer, journalist and author of the book Faith Ed, Teaching About Religion In An Age of Intolerance; Mark Fowler, Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding deputy chief executive officer; Charles C. Haynes, Vice President of the Newseum Institute’s Religious Freedom Center and Diane Moore director of Harvard Divinity School’s Religious Literacy Project.

The president of the Christian Action Network said his group found that the Department of Education is funding thorough lesson plans on the Islamic faith.

Martin Mawyer said that, through PBS, the DOE is disseminating materials that allow teachers to quiz students on what Muslim prayers sound like and what prayer movements look like.

 

The United States Department of Education has developed an ISIS 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.

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?’

 

Below are links to information published in the Communique – the official newsletter of the National Association of school psychologists.

In the November 2016 issue of the communique there is the 3rd of a series of articles about muslim students. The current article is titled “Meeting the Needs of Muslim American Students.”

To access the online document you would need to be a NASP member. The second and 3rd links show the conference brochure for Arizona Association of School Psychologists. A 3-hour session is devoted to accommodating muslim students.

How the British have passively succumbed to the Muslim invasion:


Mayor of London ... MUSLIM
Mayor of Birmingham ... MUSLIM
Mayor of Leeds ... MUSLIM
Mayor of Blackburn ... MUSLIM
Mayor of Sheffield ... MUSLIM
Mayor of Oxford ... MUSLIM
Mayor of Luton ... MUSLIM
Mayor of Oldham ... MUSLIM
Mayor of Rochdale ... MUSLIM

Over 3,000 Muslim Mosques
Over 130 Muslim Sharia Courts
Over 50 Muslim Sharia Councils
Muslims-Only No-Go Areas Across The UK

Muslim Women ... 78% don't work and are on FREE benefits/housing
Muslim Men ... 63% don't work and are on FREE benefits/housing
Muslim Families ... 6-8 children planning to go on FREE benefits/housing

... and now all UK schools are ONLY serving HALAL MEAT!

All this achieved by just 4 million Muslims out of the 66 million population!
Also: When a group like the Muslims reach 5% of population, they become very demanding, as these numbers can swing elections. Caucasian Americans reproduce at about 1.2 - 1.4. Maintenance is 2.1. Muslim couple do 8.0.

Hi Frank,

 Just about everyone was slamming us over the Magna Carta, as of about 4 hours ago, a new folder was opened up to us, they are teaching the Magna Carta in schools and leaving out this stuff. I thought all of this was just nuts, or we were nuts.

 We will share it later, ok ...?

LOL

This is unconstitutional and immoral.

Congress shall make no law regarding the establishment of religion. Congress gave unauthorized authority to the Dept of Ed., and this is the result.

From a country that used the Bible to school children, to this blasphemy.... .

Jean,

CFR has been very busy,and so has England with our Bible and the Muslim Faith. Think about it.

I do. And I know. Shut the Christians up and bring on the muslimes. It is everywhere and it is demonic. There is NO reason that any group of thinking individuals can consider islam anything but what it is—a terrorist organization, government, judicial system, political system, and a pretend religion. According to Webster's 1828 dictionary, to be a religion, there MUST be a moral presence and belief system. There is none in islam.

OMG!! WTF!!: Rep. Ilhan Omar Tells CNN That She Doesn’t Know Why Her Anti-Israel Tweets Would Offend Jewish People

Rep. Ilhan Omar defended her anti-Israel sentiments on CNN on Thursday, saying that she doesn’t know why those comments would offend the Jewish-American community.

Omar famously tweeted in 2012 that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”

When asked about the tweet by CNN, Omar responded, “oh, that’s a really regrettable way of expressing that. I don’t know how my comments would be offensive to Jewish-Americans.”

Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.

Omar added that her comments were “precisely addressing what was happening during the Gaza war,” and that she was “clearly” speaking about the way the “Israeli regime” was “conducting themselves in that war.”

“I don’t know how my comments would be offensive to Jewish-Americans.”
Oh?!

Without any follow-up or push back, CNN moved on to asking the accused antisemitic congresswoman about her opinions on Rep. Steve King and his “racist remarks.”

While her perceived antisemitism is given a pass — Rep. King is boldly branded without any hesitation.

King has repeatedly stated that he was taken out of context and disavowed white supremacy and all forms of hatred – while Omar stands behind her bigotry. Yet, only King is facing consequences and blow back.
