Virginia: Students practice calligraphy by writing “There is no god but Allah”

In my book Stop the Islamization of America, I describe and warn of the islamization of the curriculum and the schoolroom. The book was a primer on how to fight the encroaching Islamic supremacism and sharia.  I have many times published news stories (here and here) about parents protesting Islamic dawah in the classroom.

Distraught parents have described to me the proselytizing for Islam in their children’s “Social Studies” or “World History” classes. They are not teaching the children “world history,” which would include the 1,400-year history of jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural annihilations and enslavements, not to mention the extermination of the entire Jewish Banu Qurayza tribe of Arabia.

Instead, children are forced, in this case, to write the shahada (it’s what one says in order to convert to Islam).

The Department of Education, Pearson, the Gates Foundation, publishing companies and the testing companies have been hijacked by Islamic supremacists. They have hijacked our public school curriculums and textbooks (i.e., Common Core).

Virginia assignment no god but allah

“Students practice calligraphy by writing ‘There is no god but Allah,'” by Todd Starnes, FoxNews, December 15, 2015:

A Virginia school district is defending a classroom assignment that required students to practice calligraphy by writing the Muslim statement of faith, “There is no god but Allah. Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”

Female students at Riverheads High School in Staunton, Virginia, were also invited to wear Muslim clothing — a story first reported by The Schilling Show.

The school district convened a meeting on Dec. 11th to discuss the assignment with outraged parents.

The Muslim-friendly calligraphy assignment took place in a world geography class. The teacher had the kids copy the Muslim statement of faith, also known as the shahada.

“Neither these lessons, nor any other lesson in the world geography course, are an attempt at indoctrination to Islam or any other religion, or a request for students to renounce their own faith or profess any belief,” the district said in a statement provided to Fox News.

The Muslim-friendly calligraphy assignment took place in a world geography class. The teacher had the kids copy the Muslim statement of faith, also known as the shahada.

Parents told The Schilling Show that their children were not given the translation of what they were writing.

In other words, there were more than likely a few Christian teenagers in that room who had no idea they were writing, “There is no god but Allah.”

But the school district doesn’t seem to think that’s a problem.

“The statement presented as an example of the calligraphy was not translated for students, nor were students asked to translate it, recite it or otherwise adopt or pronounce it as a personal belief,” the district stated.

They said it was all about the art — not about the theology.

“They were simply asked to attempt to artistically render written Arabic in order to understand its artistic complexity,” they stated.

And out of sheer coincidence — out of all the Arabic words and phrases the teacher could have selected, she picked the Islamic statement of faith?

The district said the assignment was consistent with the Virginia Department of Education Standards of Learning and the requirements for content instruction on world monotheistic religions.

And what about having the female students dressing up in Islamic garb — is that consistent with the state mandates, too?

The district said the students were taught about the “modest dress adopted by many in the Islamic faith and were invited to try on a scarf as a part of an interactive lesson about the Islamic concept of modest dress.”

“The scarf used in the activity was not an actual Islamic religious hijab,” the district stated.

The district said they also cover other religions — including Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism and Hinduism.

However, one parent told The Schilling Show that while the Koran was presented to students, the Bible was not. The teacher reportedly declined to provide a Bible because all the students have either read or seen a Bible.

The district said there’s really not a controversy here. They just wanted students to participate in “hands-on activities intended to give them a better objective understanding of the region and its culture (including its religions and to allow for interactive learning.”

Perhaps the next time the kids at Riverheads High School practice their calligraphy skills they can learn a new word — “indoctrination.”

    When I learned about egypt I wrote in hyroglifics my name sorry about the spelling… but still that was my name we were told what an on was… they gave no info to parents and they hijacked the class

    • lee

      And I think they robbed you of an education. Muslime pigs.

      • IzlamIsTyranny

        Hieroglyphics predate islum’s conquest of Egypt.

        And yes they did with the lack of understanding how to help someone who sees things backwards and upside down…

    • DB Cooper

      They’re hieroglyphics my Irish princess

      • Maureen Donnelly

        Thank you mr. Cooper I’m dyslexic and grew up in a time when teachers didnt understand the problem..

        • DB Cooper

          I’m the same generation. The California public school system made my little left-handed butt write right-handed so I sympathize.

  • Ghost Tiger

    In George Washington’s home state no less. Disgusting!

  • J Ian

    Why not practice calligraphy using the Latin Alphabet? Oh, I forgot. That would offend muslim students. (sorry). Wearing a hijab? How about all the male students wear a “Tallit” for a day? Or how about writing the “Sh’ma” in Hebrew? Oh, I forgot. Separation of church and state, unless it’s Islam.

    • FlyBoyBlu

      Here’s some Latin for concerned parents “Si vis pacem, para bellum”…..

      • Aztec01

        And , here’s some Classical Greek for concerned citizens

      • IzlamIsTyranny

        An apt latin expression in today’s world.

    • Pray Hard

      Lots of nice looking Japanese writing to emulate too. In fact, WTF?! They just happened to pick the shahada, huh? I reiterate, lying fothermuckers.

      • phnxgrl

        Anything to advance the cause of Islam even lying ever heard of Taqiyya or Kitman?

    • meqmac

      How often do I have to say this? Calligraphy in Arabic script is one of the world’s most significant art forms. Chinese and Japanese calligraphy are wonderful in a different way. If I were a schoolteacher and wanted to introduce pupils to the possibilities inherent in good calligraphy, I would choose tyo teach them how to grasp at least a little bit of what goes on in the work of a great Arab, Turkish, Persian or Indian calligrapher. If you don’t know anything about this and are unable to understand the importance Arabic calligraphy has for mankind, then you shouldn’t pass comments.

      • J Ian

        There is no god but allah and mohamud is his messenger? MY ANSWER IS NO! That is in direct violation of the Establishment Clause and you have no right, to invoke stealth Jihad in our country. We will never bow down to allah. Give it up

        • meqmac

          I take it you would also object to writing the Shema when teaching Judaism or the Lord’s Prayer when teaching Christianity or a Buddhist mantra when teaching Buddhism? The separation of church and state applies to the civil frealm, but if we take it to the point where we can’t teach about religions in schools or universities, it defeats the verty purpose of education. I used to teach Islam in a Department of Religious Studies in a British university, and I did so as a secularist who believes in the separation of church and state. Your attitude, like that of so many in these comments, is nothing short of bigoted. And I say that as someone who has a major reputation in the criticism of Islam. Incidentally, the shahada does not say “there is no god but allah”. It says “there is no god but God”. The Hebrew of the shema reads: Sh’ma Yisrael Adonai Eloheinu Adonai Eḥad. You do not translate this as ‘The Lord is Eloheinu’ but “the Lord is God’. And it says a lot that you cannot even spell the name Muhammad.

          • J Ian

            Dont need a leture on prayer in Hebrew – there is no god but god? sure buddy -try converting to Islam saying that… what is it with you guys? cant ever tell the truth? and dont you ever try to suggest that you have any understanding of Jews or Israel – all of your leaders poison your followers with the most vile nazi jew hating crap – and the UAE claiming that your pedifiles birthday is now 24th of december? give it a rest. Its so pathetic – I know you want to teach about religion in elementary schools – I get it – you want to slowly establish a theocracy in the USA, and eliminate the “establishment clause” – I understand your strategies very well – Terrorize the unbelievers” – I get it. Good luck .

  • RJohnston

    Was genital mutilation also available to the girls for extra credit? And rock throwing for the boys so they can practice the art of killing a girl for being raped?

    • Janis

      That comes in the spring. And it’s even free! “In Indonesia, they hold a free female circumcision event by the Islamic educational and social services organization. A 2003 survey by their Population Council showed that 96 percent of respondents acknowledged that their daughters had been mutilated by the age of 14.” “They Must be Stopped” – Brigitte Gabriel

    • relligionMuslimkills

      LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Genital mutilation is from some African countries, not the Muslim faith.

      • Aztec01

        yet practiced religiously by African Muslims…

      • lee

        Which ones? Have you been mutated? Even the worthless MM report that muslimes do it. Do muslimes stone women to death or just African countries?

      • IzlamIsTyranny

        Yeah, that’s why 90% of muslim women undergo genital mutilation in Egypt — but not Coptic Christian women.
        Nice try allahtard — FAIL.

        • Allahtard. That’s a new one…

          • IslamophobicCanadianAthiest

            It Fits Though.

      • Pray Hard

        Is that why about 91% of the genital mutilations on the Earth are done by Muslims? Is that why girls are killed in Muslim countries for not being genitally mutilated? Furthermore, if you know so much, then you should know that Islam = Culture and Culture = Islam in Muslim countries. Seriously, why do you come to this site and spew such clueless liberal crap?

      • DB Cooper

        Absolutely wrong. It is commonly practiced in all predominantly mooslim countries in Africa/North Africa/ Middle East, and it’s actually becoming quite common in the U.S.

      • Kian O’Floinn

        I suggest you reasearch a tad more before posting as the Africans are Muslim!

        • Ludlow Porch

          Not all Africans are Muslims! Christianity is alive and well in most African countries, a mix of about 48%. Muslims (52%) slaughter African Christians as well as mid-east Christians.

          • Kian O’Floinn

            I was speaking of those that practice clitoril mutlition!

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Perhaps you should read up in islam, you are on the wrong path, even as a muslim apologist.

      • Susan

        Wrong, FMG was condoned by mohammad and this is the
        result in islamic countries. Percentage of females mutilated by country. 98% Somalia, 96% Guinea, 93% Djibouti, 91% Egypt, 89% Eritrea, 89% Mali, 88% Sierra Leone, 88% Sudan. There are so many more islamic countries that practice this. Why, because mohammad thought females were nothing more than sex objects and property. Islam the cult of pieces, literally. Slicing and dicing muslim
        style.

        • Guest*

          Owwww! Good work Susan..The facts have come out, Erlinda. What do you say now?

        • harbidoll

          Your Mohammed said “Don’t cut off too much, its better for the husband!!” Better cuz the pain will cause her to HATE sex. LOL there is SO much hate tween men & women in Egypt cuz of the resulting pain, rape in marriage there.

        • chad

          Mohammed was retarded, probably the result of incest.
          Heard that in Pakistan, 70% of marriages are first cousin or closer, resulting in mental retardation. Thats why Pakistanis are some of the most extreme, highest % of isis lovers, agreeing with 9/11, etc.

          • IslamophobicCanadianAthiest

            That most likely explains how Dirty Mo

            taught himself to read from the stone walls of a cave then.

      • Susan

        The “muslim faith”? I have no faith in the female hating and raping backward and barbaric 7th century nazi death cult.

      • There is genital mutilation in America. It’s called circumcision.

        • Richard

          True but it is a requirement of Islam (and Judaism), but not a requirement of Christianity.

        • Ludlow Porch

          Circumcision, pain is only temporary. Removal of the clitoris is permanent!

        • Frank Castle

          That is very weak comeback (done for sanitary reasons and the pleasure is not affected at all) and it’s interesting that you didn’t defend your previous comments.

        • IslamophobicCanadianAthiest

          That is about to change also thanks to obamascam. FGM will soon be leading.

        • IzlamIsTyranny

          LOL, so men aren’t circumcised in the islamic world?

      • Guest*

        Oh? It’s definitely the ARABs appearing in the newspapers charged or sentenced for FGM where I live, mostly Lebanese and some Egyptians, they both also appear for marrying off their underage daughters and to a man their excuse is always they didn’t know it was wrong.

      • Richard

        Not so. “FGM is found only within and adjacent to Muslim communities,” There are several Hadiths that command FMG.
        Educate yourself.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religious_views_on_female_genital_mutilation

      • Ludlow Porch

        You are partially right. The Muslims, mutilate the faces of their women! A little nose bob, and ear, a little acid in the face, here or there. Honor killings. Raping 10 year old boys and on their wedding night 12 year old brides are allowed to bleed to death by their thirtyish, loving husbands! My hedge clippers would fix that guys problem!

      • joc22

        I’ll have to call you out on this statement Erlinda. FGM is practice in all corners of the Islamic faith, from Pakistan to England, the Middle East, Europe and to a lesser extent North America. Look at the stats before you put up statements. Just don’t be so lazy and Google FGM, will ya
        Here’s some facts from the WHO:
        More than 125 million girls and women alive today have been cut in the 29 countries in Africa and Middle East where FGM is concentrated (1).

        • jam

          Hi joc22,

          In the book on Traditions that affect the health of women and children, which was published by the World Health Organization in 1979 it says:

          With regard to the type of female circumcision which involves removal of the prepuce of the clitoris, which is similar to male circumcision, no harmful health effects have been noted.

          FGM is NOT an approved practice in Islam

          What about female circumcision?

          Female circumcision is allowed in Islam and is an even less extensive procedure as compared to male circumcision, because it involves just a small trimming of the clitoral hood (which looks like a rooster’s comb), which is the prepuce or “foreskin” of the clitoris (15) (17). (This procedure is not to be confused with female genital mutilation or FGM, which is a totally different procedure involving the removal of the clitoris or altering of the genitalia and is NOT an approved practice in Islam). Recovery is even quicker and there are hardly any short term or long term complications.

          The benefits with references to medical sources (12) may include improved hygiene, reduced UTI incidences and lower infections of the reproductive systems. It will be interesting to know that in Malaysia, where female circumcision is performed extensively by the Malay-Muslim community, the incidence of cervical cancer in Malay women is lowest amongst the 3 major race groups (Indians, Chinese and Malays).

          (18)(19) Another study shows that Malay women are at lower risk of orgasmic sexual dysfunction as compared to non-Malays. (20)

          The benefit of female circumcision are :

          It prevents unpleasant odours which result from foul secretions beneath the prepuce.

          It reduces the incidence of urinary tract infections

          It reduces the incidence of infections of the reproductive system.

          Impact of circumcisions studied

          CHAPS, the Center for HIV and AIDS Prevention Studies, which manages the clinics, continues to study the impact of circumcisions.

          CEO Dirk Taljaard said new data suggests circumcision benefits women, too.

          “We saw a protective effect for women. If you had women in the community that have only had circumcised partners, the risk was reduced already by 20 percent for 15- to 25-years-old women,” Taljaard said.

          Some studies estimate that, in South Africa, for every four circumcisions, one HIV infection is avoided. Since 2007, more than 1.5 million circumcisions have been performed in the country, suggesting close to 400,000 new infections may have been avoided.
          http://www.voanews.com/content/south-africa-sees-male-circumcision-as-way-to-reduce-hiv-infections/2538279.html

          http://www.cogwriter.com/news/doctrine/cdc-finally-supports-circumcision-health-benefits-of-circumcision/

          ♠ Medical research has found that a high percentage of women who have had genital surgery “have rich sexual lives, including desire, arousal, orgasm, and satisfaction, and their frequency of sexual activity is not reduced.”

          ♠ Reproductive health and medical complications linked to female genital surgery happen
          infrequently.

          ♠ Those who value female genital surgery view it as aesthetic enhancement, not mutilation.

          ♠ In almost all societies where female genital surgery is performed, male genital surgery also takes place. Broadly speaking, then, such societies “are not singling out females as targets of punishment, sexual deprivation, or humiliation.”

          ♠ The link between patriarchy and female genital surgery is unfounded. Almost no patriarchal societies adhere to the practice and, at the same time, the practice is not customary in the world’s most sexually restrictive societies.

          There are studies that claim female circumcision lowers HIV and STD risk

          Kankiet al. reported that, in Senegalese prostitutes, women who had undergone Female Circumcision had a significantly decreased risk of HIV-2 infection when compared to those who had not.

          • godisvictorious

            WHO is uninformed; FGM is USUALLY performed in unsanitary conditions, removed the clitoris which is NOT circumcision but is akin to removing a penis in the male and has left many scarred, or dead from tetanus, or dead from exsanguination, unable to urinate and subsequent slow death by renal failure and inability to deliver children vaginally due to scarring.

            I agree with you on a lot of your facts but we’re talking about FMG, which is practised by many muslims the world over and it’s not for health reasons. If you feel so good about it, maybe you should visit some of the refugee camps in the middle east or some of the villages in Afghanistan. You wouldn’t think it’s so great.

        There is no peace in islam and you are a muslim troll, probably not even female. Muslims always pretend to be something they are not. No one lies as well as muslims do only because it is permitted and encouraged. Speaking the truth would reveal that islam is a lie built on lies.
        Learn the Four types of LYING TO FURTHER ISLAM
        The Goal: World Domination, the Caliphate, aim of Obama & his CAIR cabal in the Oval Office. –
        *Koran 3.54 “Allah is the Best of Deceivers”
        1. Taqiyya
        Taqiyya allows Muslims to lie and/or conceal their true faith, feelings,
        thoughts, plans, and character, for the purpose of protecting themselves. It is fully based on the Koran and is agreed to and practiced by all major sects of Islam.
        “When it is possible to achieve an aim by lying but not by telling the truth,it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible, and lying is obligatory if the goal is obligatory.” (Reliance of the Traveler, Para r8.2 ) World domination is obligatory.

        2.. Kitman
        Kitman is a term that means Muslims are permitted to tell half-truths, or partial truths, while concealing the greater whole truth. Discussion of “jihad” as being only an “inner” or “spiritual” struggle is an example of Kitman, as technically it is true that jihad refers to a spiritual struggle, but conceals the very real physical struggle that is also encompassed by jihad.

        Tawriya allows Muslims to “creatively lie” by being purposely ambiguous about the real meaning of what they are saying.

        4.. Muruna
        Muruna is perhaps the biggest deception practiced by Muslims, as it allows them to be “flexible” regarding the commands of their faith in order to properly blend in with the society around them. Muruna permits Muslims to shave their beards, wear Western clothing, listen to Western music, and even drink alcohol.
        This is what the 9/11 jihadists did.

        These four terms are integral to Muslims infiltration of the West. All of these deceptions go against specific commandments, as well as theoverarching commandment against lying itself, that are found in the Koran. Truth is canceled out by The Doctrine of Abrogation (nullification)

            You’re not just a muslum, you’re a lying muslim, but that’s kind par for the course w/ur damnable, Jew hating, totalitarian, mendacious cult of death isn’t tit?

            I believe she is right. No muslim would call circumcision genital mutilation – which it is.
            PS No need to abuse her. People only resort to abuse when rational argument fails them.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            Respect is the last thing I owe anyone who practices the muslum faith. It’s not my fault their religion is a Jew hating, totalitarian, fascist, violent, xenophobic death cult w/the blood of literally tens of millions of people on its hands.

          • Richard

            100’s of Millions if you count their 1400 year history. But she is not a Muslim as I have pointed out. And Islam and believing, practising Muslims are the problem. Many Muslims have been born into the religion through no fault of their own and there are Muslims who have left Islam, plenty of them. They are our greatest allies.
            Even if she were a Muslim, truth will eventually be victorious through dialogue.

          • “mendacious cult of death” sounds like a rock band!

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            Would that be kinda like the rock band ur fellow muslums tried to kill in Paris last month?

      YOU WERE TAUGHT TO THINK THAT JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD. IN
      ACTUALITY HE DID, IN THE BELLIES OF THOSE FOLLOWERS WHO ATE HIM. THEY CONSUMED
      JESUS FROM HEAD TO TOE AND JESUS WAS CONSUMED, LATER LAID TO REST AS EXCREMENT
      IN THE PRIVIES WITH ALL OTHER VILE UNMENTIONABLES. THIS IS A RITUAL CHRISTIANS
      PERFORM TO THIS DAY TO REMEMBER THE DISGUSTING TASK THESE FOLLOWERS PERFORMED
      TO FOREVER HIDE THE BODY OF THEIR MAN GOD.

      Christians are cannibals because of this
      passage in their sacred Gospels:

      [John 6: 53] Jesus said “Very truly I tell you
      unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood you have no life
      in you. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life and I will
      raise them up on the last day for my flesh is true food and my blood is true
      drink. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me and I in them.
      Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father so whoever
      eats me will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven,
      not like that which your ancestors ate and they died. But the one who eats this
      bread will live forever.”

      I guess
      Christian vegetarians don’t get eternal life, bummer.

      Laws of God our Creator – 3500 year old laws are TRUTH.

      TORAH [Genesis 9:4] “Only flesh with the life thereof which is the blood

      thereof shall ye not eat.”

      TORAH [Leviticus 7:26] “And ye shall eat no manner of blood whether it be

      of fowl or of beast in any of your dwellings.”

      TORAH [Leviticus 7:27] “Whosoever it be that eateth any blood that soul

      shall be cut off from his people.”

      YOU CLAIM TO “FULFILL” THE LAW OF MOSES? THIS IS NOT
      FULFILLING THE LAW OF MOSES, THIS IS REBELLING AGAINST IT. THIS IS BLASPHEMY
      AND HATRED OF GOD AND THE LAW

        The people who were willing to sign this “petition” were not Muslims. Just ignorant university students.

          I recently watched a video of someone passing around a petition in front of a baseball game. He was trying to get the reference to peanuts officially taken out of the song Take Me Out To The Ballgame because it was insensitive to those allergic to peanuts. He found much support. Similar to the video of someone interviewing young ladies at the beach and finding many of them who would support the institution of Sharia law in the US.

        • Nipperdoodle

          They are not true Christians. I was taught to not hate Jews because Christ was a Jew. Those who hate the Jews have been poorly educated by their church on the origins of the basis for Christ’s teachings – Judaism. Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism, mostly teach peace and have done nothing to give me any reason to hate them. Islam, on the other hand, has proven itself the be a cult of the devil and every Christian and Jew should be fighting against it!!!

        That is a generalization that is not universally true. The sort of atheist that is a progressive liberal is the sort that is stupid enough to proselytize atheism, which I find beyond stupid. These sorts, my brother is one, will (verbally) attack Christians while avoiding any discussion of the evils of Islam.

        There is a totally different sort of atheist that you appear ignorant of yet smear with your broad brush. The sort who doesn’t criticize others for their faith and who has immense respect for the Judeo-Christian ethic upon which this once great country was founded as a basis for moral behavior.

        Please look into the essays of Robert Ingersoll:
        http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0879752092?keywords=robert%20ingersoll&qid=1450372012&ref_=sr_1_4&sr=8-4

        You may wish to belabor the distinction between an atheist and an agnostic, but I don’t participate in that discussion. Once you do so, someone else controls the narrative.

        • Mahou Shoujo

          Your first paragraph is excellent. There are a few people I know that simply state they are atheists, or agnostics and leave it at that. The problem is, like you say, the progressive proselytizing atheist suffering fro the delusion that they have to convert everyone to their way of thinking. They tend to be liberal socialists types, who if they want something, everyone must have and pay for it, if they don’t want something, then no one can have it. Much as I like to be as reasonable as possible considering the circumstance, sometime I get tired of thinking and come to an abrupt conclusion.

    • Ludlow Porch

      Christianity is a “turn the other cheek,” loving belief. If atheist are critical of Islam they could lose their heads. Therefore, atheist are Sharia Law compliant!

    Can’t have christmas parties, but the school can convert children to islam???

    And have no doubt, that is EXACTLY what they are doing.
    It is not a secret that reciting or writing the shahada makes a convert out of anyone. Just read any fatwa.
    AND if you then subsequently do not keep the islamic faith, you are an apostate and subject to the death penalty.
    Just read the quran and hadiths, and fatwas based on sharia.

    These “educators” are islamophile murderers or so inept they should be nowhere near children for any reason at all.

    I would pull my children from that school first, then sue them into the ground as a school and as individuals for forced conversion to a religion.

        In Islamic teaching, reciting the shahada is considered the first step in becoming a Moslem.

  • youmustbemistaken

    The teacher could have used Greek or Latin for “Jesus is Lord”. Oh bite my tongue. That would have been called proselytizing and the teacher would have been suspended.

  • harbidoll

    now ask students how many 666,s & vuv, vuv, vuv’s (Hebrew for 666) they find in that > LOL

  • Robert Batchelor

    I like the school district’s response that there’s no controversy here. Really? If there’s no controversy then why are we discussing it. The moron who said that should be fired.

    • 0bsoleteMan

      And many other school districts all over the country give out the same assignments.

      Parents complain and nothing changes.

      I hope that when parents realize that the school administrators don’t give a hoot about what they think that the parents reconsider enrolling their kids in these schools.

  • 0bsoleteMan

    This is more proof that the secular left and radical Islam are allies. Imagine if the lesson had been to write the Lord’s Prayer in cursive.

    Every secular progressive church/state separation shill group would have been screaming and it would have been a national news story.

    Parents have got to fight back. Kick out school board members who promote this mess. That hajeb trick was tried in another area and the parents and public including a former school board member objected. The “activity” was cancelled.

    These people LIE, LIE, LIE!!!! They do not cover other religions. Where other religions are mentioned at all, it consists of a few cursory paragraphs. On the other hand, Islam is given several chapters of in depth coverage.

    The other trick is to have the study of Islam early in the school year and schedule the study of other religions toward the end of the school year knowing full well that because of unexpected changes in the attendance period such as snow days and faculty meeting or conferences, there will be little if any time for detailed coverage of other religions particularly Christianity.

    The parents in this case appealed to the media and that is a good start. But they need to make themselves heard further by protests at meetings and in other forums. It is time to demand the firing of these indoctrination instructors.

    If the “authorities” will not listen, then parents need to homeschool their children.

    • 0bsoleteMan

      The most effective way for parents to fight back is to remove their children from these public k12 school systems.

      Recalling or voting out school board members requires long term effort and has dubious success rates. There is also no guarantee that the new school board members would be any better than the previous ones.

      Homeschooling or sending kids to private schools however is an effective way to fight back. In most states, state-level funding for a public k12 school district is proportional to its enrollment. If fewer and fewer students attend then the district loses more and more money.

      • Juanita

        I am with you100% on that. The problem is that some parents are unable to homeschool because they lack the skill or the time. Some parents are working two or more jobs to make ends meet. Others cannot afford private school. One thing I would hope to see is retiired teachers who would volunteer or accept a small wage pitch in. Also, charter schools at this time offer an option although the “state” nipping at their heels for a takeover.

        If those indoctrination centers could be emptied, it would not only stop the brainwashing, it would also put those sellouts out of work..

  • meqmac

    I’m sorry, but I don’t see the calligraphy exercise as a problem (except in one respect). Arabic calligraphy, especially in its Persian forms, is one of the world’s greatest art forms. It’s hard to appreciate if you can’t read it, but if you do you will see the most stunning pieces of artistry imaginable. It is surely important to introduce Western students to something so important in culture. The mistake with the exercise shown above is that it uses a very elaborate formulation, with letters deliberately misplaced. A beginner could not possibly reproduce it all. Why not have a straightforward line to practise on, and why not extend the whole thing into basic Arabic lessons leading to a gradual appreciation of the best calligraphy. Since we are in constant contact with the Middle East, it makes sense to learn to appreciate its positive achievements, even while teaching children about its negative side.

    • 0bsoleteMan

      How about we then teach children how to write in cursive in English?

      If Arabic must be taught, why use the Shahada and not some different phrase, like “My name is ___ and it is nice to meet you.”

      • meqmac

        I agree, there is no need to show how to write the Shahada. My point is that a knowledge of Arabic calligraphy opens up wonderful horizons. Just copying something won’t work, since Arabic letters change their shape, unlike Hebrew, and a beginner can quickly get lost. But it doesn’t take much time to get a grip on the basics. More advanced calligraphy, especially Persian shekasta-nasta’liq, can be incredibly difficult even for someone like myself, who has deciphered many Persian manuscripts. Students don’t have to learn how that works, but once they know the alphabet and a little more, the result is sheer fascination with the art form. Some may go on to study Arabic or Persian at university, as I did many years ago, others who study fine art may well carry their interest further. A lot of modern Arab, Persian and other painting uses calligraphy to great effect. And those who go on to study architecture can benefit from the way calligraphy is used on buildings – a point many tourists do not see, taking script for mere decoration. We need to open our horizons. That is not the same as converting to Islam or letting Muslim values encroach on Western culture.

        • IzlamIsTyranny

          At this point, to say Iranian “culture” and Arabpig “culture” is somehow distinct from islam (spit) is disingenuous at best and a lie at worst.

    and yet praying in school is banned due to the fallicy of what the left believes when the term “separation of church and state” is mentioned. and this is allowed?

  • Angel Hoffman Mitchell

    Let’s see, the last time I checked The Declaration of Independence was in calligraphy. Why not copy some of it?

  • DM

    Someone please correct me if this is incorrect. By writing or saying the shahada (what one says in order to convert to Islam) the students are affirming their de facto allegiance to islam. This is not a small matter. By doing that, under sharia law they can be executed for practicing any other religion. Either the teacher /school board members are horribly ignorant of what is going on in the world or they are complicit in the destruction of Western Civilization. At some point this may in fact put these children at horrible risk from their fellow students who are practicing muslims or the students parents/families who will know they have de facto accepted islam but are practicing some other religion. This is serious business not to be taken lightly.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      There is no fool like a pseudo educated administrative petty school board member or teacher. Islam is very letter of the law driven, the excuse that “you did not know” is non existent in shari’a, you are guilty when accused, and will get the prescribed punishment. The fools who think islam has the sane values and definitions as any other religion are remarkable in their ignorance. There will be a problem, for as long as the mosque in Washington is supporting islam in America,

    The shahada is the “Mark of the Beast” and allah is “The Beast” described in the book of Revelation 13:15-18.

  • All kidding aside, if my children were made to write, “There is no God but Allah,” and not able to study their own religion, I would be upset. With the school, not the religion.

    They could have easily written, “I am American” in Arabic. One Google search would have taken care of that.

    In the meantime, there has been Muslim influence since the inception of the United States. Morocco was the first country to acknowledge us as a country. https://www.quora.com/Why-was-Morocco-the-first-nation-to-recognize-Americas-independence

    In the meantime, the idea of America’s “Islamization” is absurd. We are individuals, strong enough to think for ourselves. If we don’t want to be Muslim, we don’t have to be. It’s our right as Americans to pick whatever religion we want to practice.

    I am a disabled American veteran, injured in the line of duty. I fought for this country and its principles that give equality to everyone. I also fought to defend against enemies, foreign and domestic.

    I’ve also studied combat, and one of the first rules is, “Know thy enemy.” It’s pretty clear that most Christian Americans don’t know jack about Muslims and Arabs.

    Attacking a bunch of people because they practice a different religion is stupid. The real enemy is not Islam, it’s ISIS. They are the ones we need to be looking at, not some random people who don’t care about killing Christians.

    Islam has 1 billion practitioners. If they wanted us gone, we would be gone.

    ISIS needs to go. Focusing on something, some school did once is distracting from the real enemy. We need to know who they are. They are crazy, they are well funded (they earn $1 million a day from oil investments) and they want to kill and take over the world, including other Muslims.

    Here is information on solutions for fighting ISIS. They are a brutal, cruel force, and they need to be wiped off the planet. Let’s focus on the real enemy, instead of wasting our time on stereotypes that just push us farther away from defeating this threat.

      We have 14 schools here in Ontario, Canada where the cafeterias are turned into mosques every Friday. This was an agreement between the local mosque and the school because the kids weren’t going there after school as they wanted to play. This forces them to attend the one in the school.

      These are the Human Rights rules of the Toronto District School Board.

      1. The need to guard against religious indoctrination/coercion;
      2. The need to accommodate religious practices/beliefs without endorsing or sanctioning any in particular or favoring some over others;
      3. The role of schools as institutions that promote a variety of societal goals including tolerance and respect, the promotion of equality (including gender equality), and the prevention of discrimination against marginalized groups;

      In the mosque/cafeteria the girls must enter by a different door, they are separated from the boys, who sit up front, by a line of tables. If they are menstruating they can not participate. Does this seem like they are following the Human Rights rules? Non muslims miss a half day of school.

      The prayer these muslims say according to a muslim writer in the Toronto Sun is ““O Allah, pour patience upon Muslims, strengthen their feet and give them victory over ‘Qawm -el Kafiroon’ (Non-Muslims). “O Allah, give victory to our brothers the Muslims, the oppressed, the tyrannized and the ‘Mujahedeen’ (those who fight jihad against non-Muslims)”.

      I contacted my member of parliament, who is also Ontario’s premier and a lesbian and they knew nothing of what was taught in Valley Field PS, which is close to me. My school trustee also did not know what was being taught and she wrote me she would not comment on specific religious practices. I wrote her back that this implies you do not know what is being taught in these mosques. If this is the case it is imperative that you do understand and report this to us, your constituents. Is it possible that I could go to Valley Field Public School myself to find out what is taught in their Friday mosque or contact the school administration for their input? The answer was “No!”.

      You write that ISIS is the enemy. You do realize they are following exactly was islam has been for 1,400 years. You state we must know our enemy, which is true. The enemy is islam and its muslim followers.

    I have used calligraphy for years when writing letters. These kids are NOT learning calligraphy if they are simply copying something.
    Just why were they given the particular phrase.
    Why aren’t they having them use English words and phrases?
    This is as insidious as those girls in Illinois dressing like female Muslims, or the teacher in a Catholic collage in Wheaton, IL doing the same and in a Catholic school of all places, and being allowed to proceed.

    What the hell is wrong with the parents, pull your kids out, stop supporting the incredibly stupid people, for your kids sake STAND UP and shout loud and clear.

  • Cayla Haluptzok

    Im a student at blaine high school and im in the choir. All we are doing is supporting our fellow choir family and fellow classmates. Please tell me why everyone has to make a big deal of nothing. We sang this song last year and we had no complains about it. You guys are being very disrespectful to this religion all we were doing was respecting that religion if you have an issue with it you can just stop talking and keep it to yourselfs. we celebrate different religions here at BHS. You do not have to support the religion. we are respecting the different religions we have here at this spectacular school. So please stop judging the choices that we make and the songs our teachers pick and understand we are a respectful school and respect everyone and their religion. I hope you all know that the things you are saying are hurting alot of students at my school and its hurting people around the world. Singing a song for a concert is harmless and my teachers should not be getting hate for it. they have taught us students more than just singing. But some adults dont understand that. Singing a song to be respectful to our classmates is harmless and if people are complaining about it then we shouldnt be sing any of the christian and jewish songs we sing either. Our teachers never told us that we had to sing this song and it doesnt make sense why one dumb student had to say they did and ruin our whole schools reputation an the teachers. I hope that this all goes away soon cuz i feel so bad for my amazing choir teachers knowing they had to deal with all of this.

    To Erlinda Shen

    Nonsense.

    Please spare us the rubbish about all the good deeds muslims performed in the Western world and their imaginary contribution to our Judeo-Christian civilization.

    I bet your children have been taught to write in block print only. And if calligraphy has suddenly resurfaced in our schools, why limited to Arabic?

    And why should students in government-controlled schools be taught any religion at all in a country where secularism is the law?

    To become a muslim, all one has to do is say or write the very formula used by that school to “teach calligraphy” to your children, whether or not you mean or even understand what you have said or written. Which is an open door for CAIR to later claim that these kids are actually muslims. Absurd? Not one bit, for islam teaches that everyone on earth is born a muslim and that only evil forces have allowed some people to deny that fact.

    islam may have one billion followers but there is 6 more billion people on earth who can’t stand this totalitarian ideology. Besides, quality is what really matters, not quantity.

    And what do you think your grand parents should have done after Pearl Harbor, take the time to investigate all Japanese nationals or Nisei on our soil, one by one,
    to find out which ones were potential threats and which ones didn’t APPEAR to be before taking going to war? Right now, all muslims are potential threats to America. Even they – or many of them – don’t know whether or not they would be able or willing to conduct terrorist activities given the circumstances. There will be plenty of time to sort them out after this latest episode of jihad has been crushed.
