Sharia Law in Calif School District: Bans Middle Schoolers from Drawing Muhammed

Drawing Muhammed has been banned in a California school district after 7th-graders were given an assignment that asked them to sketch images related to the religion. This is sharia law in the schools, sharia adherence mandated for our children. Why? This is not a madrassa. These are not Muslims, why adhere to Islamic law? What’s next?

The lesson our children are being taught is to reward savagery and violent intimidation with submission.

 

These weak, sniveling cowards wrap themselves in the cloak of “sensitivity” while bowing to the terror group CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), which demanded that the district to stick to “formally approved” material and only “use that material rather than running the risk of using inaccurate or offensive material.”

Yes, because the “formally approved” material has been corrupted. There is an Islamic curriculum that proselytizes Islam to our children.

CA District Bans Depicting Religious Leaders After Middle Schoolers Draw Muhammed,” Truth Revolt, November 6, 2015
“It’s not appropriate to have our children go to school and learn how to insult a religious group.”

Drawing Islam’s Prophet Muhammed has been banned in a California school district after 7th-graders were given an assignment that asked them to sketch images related to the religion.

According to the Los Angeles Daily News, a parent complained when her son brought home the vocabulary assignment that had terms about Islam printed (Koran, Mecca, Muhammed) with space provided to draw related pictures.

When this was brought to the attention of Acton-Agua Dulce Unified School District Superintendent Brent Woodard, he consulted with an “expert on Islam” and made the announcement that drawing religious figures will no longer be allowed as assignments.

What expert? Robert Spencer? Ibn Warraq? Bat Ye’or? I am sure the expert was either an Islamic supremacist or an Islamic apologist. Who exactly did this clueless clown speak to?

“I have directed all staff to permanently suspend the practice of drawing or depiction of any religious leader,” Woodard said. “I am certain this teacher did not intend to offend anyone and in fact was simply teaching respect and tolerance for all cultures.”

But that’s not how Melinda Van Stone saw it when she viewed her 12-year-old son’s work two weeks ago:

“It’s not appropriate to have our children go to school and learn how to insult a religious group.”

Stone learned that while the lesson was based on state-approved curriculum, the individual worksheet was brought in by the teacher separately. However, school district President Ed Porter defended the teacher saying he is “very tolerant” and “inclusive.”

Porter added, though, that “more sensitivity” is needed.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations-Los Angeles chimed in urging the district to stick to “formally approved” material and only “use that material rather than running the risk of using inaccurate or offensive material.”

      Here we go. (I forgot to add the part from the Koran about killing infidels and cutting off their heads and fingertips, though, as being followed by these practitioners.)

    Well Parents of Acton- Auga Dulce School District! It is up you as voters to decide what to do about “YOUR” Elected SCHOOL BOARD Members and who they wish to Cater to in “YOUR” School District! Go to School Board MEETING and let them know your feelings. If you do not care you better be prepared learn SHARIA LAW and the Koran as subject school curriculum.

  • SupportMcCarthyism

    Well libs, you get what you have paid for.

  • Paula Boddington

    So. The school will have to make sure that in any art lessons or history lessons, the very many historical depictions of Mohammed are ripped out of any textbooks or course materials, I suppose? And they’d better monitor computer activity in case any of their little wards google ‘depictions of Mohammed in Islamic Art’ (107,000 results)

    Were my wife and I stupid enough to have sent our children to a government school with this blatant indoctrination I would reward them for going against the PC grain. Then we would have pulled them out immediately…really would have done so long before common corpse. Years ago we smelled what was cooking at these institutions and took our kids all the way to graduation via home educating. Sure it was tough, sure I had to work extra to pay the bills but it was worth it.

    So mom and dad, what is keeping you from protecting your heritage by refusing to allow the government schools to steal your kid’s minds? Is that third car, new boat, or 4000 sq ft home, that requires you and your wife to work really worth more than your children?

      This story might make more sense if taken in it’s whole context. We are a military family and so, obviously, we believe in fighting for freedom of speech. However, I would like to think that my husband, having been deployed seven times as an Airforce pilot, would have helped protect our freedom of not having our son indoctrinated into someone else’s religion while in public school history class. My son being made to draw a picture of Mohammad to get an A in history is a bit much. I don’t know that “banned” as the media likes to call it is as appropriate as just saying that the superintendant simply told the school to stop making the kids draw pictures of religious icons such as Mohammad and God. This really should not have been forced upon the kids in the first place, particularly mine. We are not muslim. The biggest loss of freedom that I see is that the state of CA actually does require the schools to teach about religions and is to teach them about the Islamic religion in the 7th grade. I feel that we should have the freedom of not having public schools force religions, at the CA state dept of ed’s choosing, on our kids. Now, I’m all for the kids having the freedom to express themselves but that is not the issue. When the children are forced to learn a religion while in school then I certainly think our freedom has been infringed. While we believe in freedom of speech we also don’t believe that the school should be teaching our kid to use it to insult people. If they are trying to teach the kids about the Islamic religion shouldn’t they at least know that Islamic people don’t think drawings of Mohammad should be done? Maybe they should learn about what it is they are trying to teach our kids. Just a thought. If you would like to discuss this further you can call me or email me at melindaustin@aol.com but I have to say that you are portraying this issue in the opposite manner in which it occurred. Because of the way it was reported by the first reporter, some people even think I’m Muslim and had it “banned” because it insulted my religion when that is not at all the case. My kid shouldn’t be forced to draw pictures of God or Allah or Mohammad for 7th grade public school history class. On top of that, because I took issue with it and told them I didn’t think it was appropriate my son was removed from history class and made to repeatedly sit in the office because the principal said she didn’t want to continue ‘offending’ us. Why should our son be removed from history class just so that he isn’t forced to do things like draw pictures of Mohammad? He shouldn’t. Parents should have some say in the religious information the schools force on their kids.

  • SteveInCalif

    I want kids to know those vocabulary words; they’re part of everyday life, world culture and history. I’m an old guy and learned these way back in social studies class, why is it such a problem now? Ah, the PC vortex we’ve allowed ourselves to sink in to.

  • my quotes

    Yep…. kids that young should be encouraged to draw pictures that offend many people… thanks for sharing pamala.

    • crazymind99

      What if you could not write or say anything bad about Obama or the Tea Party ? You want to define what offends. The American flag may offend Muslim’s so ban the flag. You are wrong in attacking Pam and need to attack those who violate our laws.

      Yeah because these kids should be taught to be good little dhimmis instead of being allowed to innocently draw pictures that offend perpetually offended Muslims.

    • devilsadvocate

      How does it offend anyone? Who would even see the drawings? And how the fkuc does a drawing of a man just sitting there offend anyone? If he was rooting his 9 year old child bride that might offend decent people but even that doesnt seem to bother muslims who apparently can handle child sex but get a bit offended when someone does a picture of the pedo prophet ffs!

    Yet another reminder that Islam Creates Monsters. These humans aren’t born that way. They are taught hate and violence by their “religion.”

    • Would you wear a T-shirt with a Mohammad cartoon printed on it?

      You might in Montana. Don’t try it in Mecca.

      Why?

      Because, Islam trains a small number of its most devout believers it’s OK to kill. And Islamic killers have been trained to kill anyone who insults Allah and/or Mohammad.

      In Montana you’d have a good chance none of these Islamic killers would see you.

      In Mecca you wouldn’t last five minutes. One of Islam’s killers would come from out of nowhere and kill you. It is that simple.

      You don’t believe me? Ask any Muslim!

    • Nico Kazan

      No need for every Muslim to become violent. There are two kinds of Muslims: those which use violence to destroy the West and those which use Western democracy to infiltrate the West and destroy it from inside just like Allien does. They complement each other. Europe already in the process of submission and US seems as taking the same path cause every state there cares only about it’s own problems while Obama steers the whole ship towards destruction.

    • MiddleSister

      And every Islamist starts as a Muslim. And every Muslim starts as a believer of Islam. And Islam starts as an ideology, masked as a religion, cloaked in a culture of death. “Death to infidels”, so sayeth every Jihadist. And the mask comes off, and the cloak is red with the blood of the infidels. And what you’re left with is death.

      “The judge ordered Salzman to attend 10 sessions with a counselor named Mary Pepper…”
      “Pepper began praying out loud, Salzman objected but Pepper told her, “well this is what I do.” When Salzman attended the next session, Pepper prayed out loud again and spoke at length about God. Salzman asked the court to let her see another counselor, but the court never responded. Salzman stopped seeing Pepper and the court took her sons away.”
      “The meaning in my life is to know love and serve God,” Pepper told Salzman in one of the recorded meetings. “If you want to explore how God was in your past, how God was in your life and not in your life… I know you don’t believe in God which is fine but I now at some points he was in your life in some way.”

    I’d have had my child draw 50 year old Muhammad engaging in “the pleasure of the thighs” with his six year old favorite wife Aisha and adding a caption that it is an “Illustration of 50 year old Muhammad engaging in “the pleasure of the thighs” with his six year old favorite wife Aisha …” with citation of the Islamic source. If they want people to know the facts about Islam, then let them see what they really are.

    Much as “rape” and “murder” have been redefined in Mohamedan lexicon, “slander” is a word to pay close attention to. Slander as defined: the action or crime of making a false spoken statement damaging to a person’s reputation.
    Redefined as taking out the part about being FALSE. So, ANYTHING said damaging [speaking truth] will be considered a crime.

Why keep complaining when schools like this are prone to ban the Bible, ban prayer, ban the Constitution, ban the first and second Amendment, ban the National Anthem, ban Pledge of Allegiance, encourage civil violence, encourage sexual experimentation, promote same sex marriage and abortion and anything else that you never thought about. They want your children to have an open mind about female genital mutilation, sharia law, pedophilia and some other choice things that celebrate the life and times of Mohammad.

    It is time for Islam and CAIR in particular to realize this is the United States. We have freedoms like freedom to worship as we see fit, freedom to express ourselves. If Islam gets offended because someone draws their interpretation of Mohamed OH WELL. Christians are being persecuted just for being Christian. The people of CAIR will scream if anyone offends them while they support beheading. That offends me, plus it is illegal here. It is time for the Congress to stand up and tell Islam that their political movement based on conquest and he destruction of freedom will not be allowed to dominate anything in the US. They can practice their “religion” of oppression and cruelty but they can not force it on others. The current administration (regime) has made it clear that Islam is to be exalted above all others in violation of our Constitution. Congress has become impotent in the face of Barack Obama. It is time for the American people to stand up and tell CAIR HELL NO. When a college decides not to have the National Flag (colors) presented at a Veteran’s Day service, or will not allow the playing of our National Anthem that is an insult to ALL American veterans. If our flag or national anthem offend you, I have a SUGGESTION

    • Miip

      We also have freedom from religion… As in the 1st amendment clause of the United States Constitution. It is as follows….

      “Congress shall make no law in respect to an establishment of religion”

      The following is why the founders made the constitution secular in that” congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”…..

      “The most stringent controls on speech in the colonial period were controls that outlawed or otherwise censored speech that was considered blasphemous in a religious sense. A 1646 Massachusetts law, for example, punished persons who denied the immortality of the soul. In 1612, a Virginia governor declared the death penalty for a person that denied the Trinity under Virginia’s Laws Divine, Moral and Martial, which also outlawed blasphemy, speaking badly of ministers and royalty, and “disgraceful word.”

      • drummie

        Like most liberal apologist for satan you leave out 1 major part of the constitution. It also says the ” the free exercise thereof shall not be infringed.

        That means that the free exercise of religion can not be infringed upon by the government. NO WHERE is there a right to be free from religion, only that the government can not impose it on you or interfere with the free exercise of it. That doesn’t mean you can not pray in school, or that you can not pray on the streets or wear a religious emblem. i take it from your comment that you must be either agnostic or atheist. Either way, there is no such “right” to be free from religion, only the government imposition of a particular religion.

        • Miip

          For the record I am an Atheist and I do not believe in Satan.

          There is freedom of religion and freedom from religion within the United States but there are limitations to freedom of religion…

          School led prayer led by government officials such as teachers & adults at public school is illegal. It is in violation of constitutional provisions and well established federal and state laws and precedence for public schools to lead prayers on to students. However, kids can form their own religious clubs (without the adults leading the club) and pray all they want when it is not disrupting class time or other students personal space.

          YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO BRAINWASH OTHER PEOPLES CHILDREN TO YOUR RELIGION. IT IS NOT YOUR RIGHT TO DO SO!

          Students Kicked Out Of Class For Not Praying to Chrisitian God

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l74gHG6jj08

          Let me finish by saying that I detest Islam and want to see an end to muslim immigration in to Western countries. However, this story is true. Students were kicked out of class for not praying to the Christian god. It is about time that people on the right wake up to their own hypocrisy…

          The following is a link to a webpage of the story by the foundation that sued the school for not changing their ways. The foundation warns them first and if they persist they sue.
          The name of the organization that received the complaint about this matter and sued is called “Freedom From Religion Foundation” (FFRF)

    I don’t understand the liberal position on islam. It literally goes against everything that they claim to stand for. These muslims condone the murder of homosexuals, adulterers, well the female versions anyway, overall oppression of women, murder of atheists, abortion is also not allowed. Yet they defend it to the end, and if they are successful in giving the muslims the power they want, the first ones they will want to come and kill will be the liberals who fought to giver them the power. Oh yeah, I forgot they also love them some rape, especially of non muslims.

    Just to be clear, I don’t believe that all of them are like that, but there are at least hundreds of thousands and maybe millions who do.

    • MiddleSister

      My most liberal family member thinks that mixing Conservatives and Muslim Brotherhood together are how you make an American Taliban. How there is no difference between the two. See they can’t outright condemn these murdering, raping, abortion-denying, gay-hating, Sharia law-loving Islamists. They have to transfer their outrage to make them Conservatives in their minds. Then, and only then can they feel outrage. Only if they equate the two to be interchangeable. They actually think The Muslim Brotherhood are Republicans. It’s just incredible how they have such twisted logic.

      • actionjksn

        On social issues our beliefs are closer to them, as far as the gay stuff and abortion and whatnot. But we are still way different in that we aren’t going around killing people to make them comply. These liberals and muslims are lucky we are not violent like them. Because we are way smarter than the muslims and would be much more dangerous. But we are above doing violent crap to innocent people, so these liberals are full of crap.

    CAIR is a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood and funded by the Saudis.

    The Saudis also used taxpayer funded grants to create the inserted Islam indocrination material including prayers in Common Core Curriculum.

    Here is how it happened:
    The Saudis donated $10 million dollars to Georgetown University to create the Islamic Center at Georgetown University. This partnership was initiated with the help of Hillary and her campaign manager John Podesta and later Obama.

    Podesta , Obama and Hillary then helped the Georgetown University Islamic Center get millions of dollars in taxpayer funded government grants to create Islamic propaganda written by the Saudis and inserted into the K-12 Common Core Curriculum. This is why your children are learning to recite Islamic Prayers in public schools and the kicker is you to taxpayer funded this Saudi written propaganda.

    There is a sculpture of Mohamed on the US Supreme Court building, along with most of the other “lawgivers” down through history. CAIR wanted it sandblasted off the building but it’s still up there.

    One of CAIR’s objections was that the sculpture depicts Mohamed with a sword thus creating a false impression of this kind benevolent prophet.

    Pamela you know what’s interesting? It wasn’t all that long ago that Christianity or elements of it were forbidden to be taght in public school yet in order to understand English literature you need to have that understanding. History and how life was centered around the Roman Catholic Church until the reform movement, again not understanding the religion you can’t appreciate what c occurred. Jewish European history and how we were excluded from many trades and unions with our religion separating us from the larger society. My understanding as it applies to Religon or the meanings as in Shaekspere it’s not taught but in the Leftest mindset of Islam being an exotic religion anything including censorship is ok. I want to know Mr District Supervisor what does Mohammed look like since no Muslim knows? The Quran was written army best 200 years after the death of Mohammed. No STR sculptures exist. In theory a 7th grader can draw Stick figure and call it Mohammed and now YOU A PUBLIC SCHOOL HAVE TAKEN IT UPON YOURSELF TO ENFORCE ANOTHER REGIONS EDICTS ON A CHISTIAN JEW BUDDHIST OR HINDU. YOU MUST KNOW YOU WILL LOSE IN COURT. B

    Californians are renowned the world over for having their brains shrunk in a manner not unlike California raisins, dry wrinkled, and thick. The school board doing this is at best traitorous to the west, insulating and bigoted ito the secular concept of government through its submission to islam. Why are there no bans on the irreligious display of things offensive to Christians or any other religion? Islam must be held to the ridicule and contempt it deserves, not enshrined in school board policy. Police beat upon them.

    This story might make more sense if taken in it’s whole context. We are a military family and so, obviously, we believe in fighting for freedom of speech. However, I would like to think that my husband, having been deployed seven times as an Airforce pilot, would have helped protect our freedom of not having our son indoctrinated into someone else’s religion while in public school history class. My son being made to draw a picture of Mohammad to get an A in history is a bit much. I don’t know that “banned” as the media likes to call it is as appropriate as just saying that the superintendant simply told the school to stop making the kids draw pictures of religious icons such as Mohammad and God. This really should not have been forced upon the kids in the first place, particularly mine. We are not muslim. The biggest loss of freedom that I see is that the state of CA actually does require the schools to teach about religions and is to teach them about the Islamic religion in the 7th grade. I feel that we should have the freedom of not having public schools force religions, at the CA state dept of ed’s choosing, on our kids. Now, I’m all for the kids having the freedom to express themselves but that is not the issue. When the children are forced to learn a religion while in school then I certainly think our freedom has been infringed. While we believe in freedom of speech we also don’t believe that the school should be teaching our kid to use it to insult people. If they are trying to teach the kids about the Islamic religion shouldn’t they at least know that Islamic people don’t think drawings of Mohammad should be done? Maybe they should learn about what it is they are trying to teach our kids. Just a thought. If you would like to discuss this further you can call me or email me at melindaustin@aol.com but I have to say that you are portraying this issue in the opposite manner in which it occurred. Because of the way it was reported by the first reporter, some people even think I’m Muslim and had it “banned” because it insulted my religion when that is not at all the case. My kid shouldn’t be forced to draw pictures of God or Allah or Mohammad for 7th grade public school history class. On top of that, because I took issue with it and told them I didn’t think it was appropriate my son was removed from history class and made to repeatedly sit in the office because the principal said she didn’t want to continue ‘offending’ us. Why should our son be removed from history class just so that he isn’t forced to do things like draw pictures of Mohammad? He shouldn’t.

  • Van Stone

    My wife brought this issue to the school board and my child attends the middle school in Acton. I’m writing to set the record straight as Pamela and many other bloggers have spun the facts to fit their own agendas. First my wife and I are all for the first amendment and the freedom of speech, but also did not want our child learning about the intricacies of Islam in a public classroom as we are not Muslims. In fact we had our soon removed from that class for the remainder of the time the common core Islam lesson was being taught…I must have missed reading that in your articlle. I do appreciate the historical perspective and think it’s important to know the role Islam has played in shaping culture and governments in the Middle East as well as knowing how Christianity, Catholicism, and other religions shaped cultures and governments around the world. However, we feel learning about a religion beyond the historical aspects of it in a public school is not appropriate and is something to be accomplished within our home and our place of worship. Additionally, Acton is a small quiet community in the mountains and the last thing we want is ending up on the Islamic Radical’s radar like in Garland or the attack on Charlie Hebdo. This is not sharia law in the classroom. Nobody is stifling free speech. Ask yourselves this question…Would any of you readers and bloggers feel comfortable if your child was being told they needed to draw Muhammed and the Quran for school or having your child learn details about a religion that your family doesn’t practice which goes beyond the role it played in history? This situation boils down to an issue of respect. 1. Respect by the school for the families that don’t practice a particular religion to not have to have their child indoctrinated in a public school. 2. Respect for Islam or any religion for that matter by not doing an action in which that religion deems as being very offensive. I’m sure you would be equally if not more offended if the school had the kids burn crosses and I’m sure you would be one of the first to cry foul. The problems our society’s facing is not going to be solved by antagonizing one another and displaying intolerance towards another religious group. Showing tolerance, respect, and making sure you have the facts on a situation before you open your mouth or punch letters on your keyboard are at least a place to start. At no point did Pamela or any blogger on any website reach out to us to get our side of the story. This is just another example of an irresponsible and unethical attempt at journalism.
