Matthew Barakat reports for the AP on yet another episode of poisonous Muslim thought infiltrating the USA:
McLEAN, Va. (AP) -- Textbooks at a private Islamic school in northern Virginia teach students that it is permissible for Muslims to kill adulterers and converts from Islam, according to a federal investigation released Wednesday.
Other passages in the school's textbooks state that "the Jews conspired against Islam and its people" and that Muslims are permitted to take the lives and property of those deemed "polytheists."
The passages were found in selected textbooks used during the 2007-08 school year by the Islamic Saudi Academy, which teaches 900 students in grades K-12 at two campuses in Alexandria and Fairfax and receives much of its funding from the Saudi government.
The academy has come under scrutiny from critics who allege that it fosters an intolerant brand of Islam similar to that taught in the conservative Saudi kingdom. In the review, the panel recommended that the school make all of its textbooks available to the State Department so changes can be made before the next school year.
...The county conducted its own study of the textbooks last year at the request of Supervisor Gerald Hyland, whose district encompasses the academy.
Hyland and the county never released results of what they had found, but Hyland said in approving the lease that he is comfortable with the school's teachings, though he did so with a qualification.
"I would be less than frank if I didn't tell you that the curriculum does contain references to the Quran, which, if taken out of context and read literally, would cause come concern," Hyland said at the meeting at which the lease was extended.
This is the problem. This guy's a schools supervisor, but yet another dimwit who wants to believe the Quran is some sweet book filled with teachings of peace and tolerance, when the stuff they're talking about here -- killing the infidel -- is precisely what the Quran commands.
We're seeing more and more of this -- the infiltration of American schools and society by Islam. There are a more examples in a terrific Cinnamon Stillwell piece on SFGate, who reports that some public, charter and voucher-funded private schools are using tax dollars to teach Islam and bring in speakers with Islamist ties or sympathies. For example:
Last month, students at Friendswood Junior High in Houston were required to attend an "Islamic Awareness" presentation during class time allotted for physical education. The presentation involved two representatives from the Council on American-Islamic Relations, an organization with a record of Islamist statements and terrorism convictions. According to students, they were taught that "there is one God, his name is Allah" and that "Adam, Noah and Jesus are prophets." Students were also taught about the Five Pillars of Islam and how to pray five times a day and wear Islamic religious garb. Parents were not notified about the presentation and it wasn't until a number of complaints arose that school officials responded with an apologetic e-mail.
People need to wake up to the slow creep of Islam into America. I believe Europe is lost, and will be under Sharia law in my lifetime. But, with our vast territory and huge population, we still have a chance -- if we wake up instead of going like sheep to the slaughter...like the commenters below Stillwell's piece who cry "Islamophobia." Phobia? Phobia? Your religion commands you to behead me, and I'm "phobic"? Right.
Repeat after me: No, not "Baaaa!" But, "Islam is totalitarianism tarted up as religion." And, by the way, there's no such thing as a "moderate" Muslim; there are only Muslims who are uninformed about what's in the Quran, or who ignore what's in the Quran, which is incitement after incitement to violence against the "infidel."
