How CAIR Shaped San Diego’s Public Schools

In April 2017, the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) School Board approved a plan to address anti-Muslim bullying in schools. Beginning this fall, students will “learn more about [Islam] in social studies….Schools…will review and vet materials related to Muslim culture and history…and provide resources and material for teachers…and…promote a more positive image of Islam.” The driving force behind the plan, however, is the Council on American-Islamic Relations – San Diego (CAIR-SD), which has a history of ties to radical Islamists.

CAIR-SD and the SDUSD School Board have a long-standing relationship. In November 2015, the Board commended CAIR-SD for “ten years of teaching students to accept and honor religious and cultural differences,” as well as its partnership with “the District’s Office of Race/Human Relations and Advocacy,” and its involvement “in mediating situations…that involve discrimination.”

In July 2016, Hanif Mohebi, CAIR-SD’s Executive Director, lobbied the School Board to adopt an official anti-Muslim bullying plan. Over the past six months, Mohebi has lectured students and teachers on “Islamophobia” at more than a dozen District schools. At these sessions, Mohebi has distributed a pamphlet offering to help Muslim students “file a complaint” against school administrators and to provide students with “resources about your faith…(to)… share with administrators and teachers.” But should Mohebi and CAIR-SD be teaching students their particular brand of Islam?

Let Your Light Shine: My Year As the Visiting Scholar of Conservative Thought at the University of Colorado

A little  over four years ago the University of Colorado, Boulder began a three-year pilot program that I believe has no precedent in American higher education. With the help of private donors, and the support of the university’s board, president, and chancellor, the school created the position of Visiting Scholar of Conservative Thought and Policy.

According to its supporters, the chair’s purpose is to advance that type of diversity—political and ideological diversity—that seems a natural fit for a public academic institution that has the motto, “Let Your Light Shine.”

With its fifth year beginning in the fall of 2017, it is safe to say that this is no longer a pilot program, but a permanent fixture of the university. I was honored to have served as the 2016-17 occupant of the chair, which is a full-time faculty appointment with a regular 2-2 course load.

With all my grades now turned in, I’d like to offer some reflections on my time in Boulder.

COMMENT RE: RADICAL HISTORY OF DAR AL-HIJRAH ISLAMIC CENTER

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

 

.Thanks to Gadi Adelman for sharing this important information with us about the radical history of the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center  that is mentioned in the article I sent out earlier today.  Gadi is a counter terrorism expert and his radio show, America Akbar,  can be heard at  gadiadelman.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&id=25&layout=blog&Itemid=14
Nancy

For those who may not know, The Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center is where Anwar al-Awlaki was an Imam at the mosque between January 2001 and April 2002.  He has been accused since of being a senior al-Qaeda recruiter and motivator linked to various terrorists, including three 9/11 hijackers, the accused Fort Hood shooter, and the accused Christmas Day 2009 bomber.  Several sources indicated that Nidal Malik Hasan, the sole suspect in the November 5, 2009 Fort Hood shooting, attended the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque at the same time in 2001 as Nawaf al-Hazmi and Hani Hanjour (two of the September 11 hijackers), who attended the mosque for several weeks during 2001 when Anwar al-Awlaki was Imam there.       Gadi

VIDEO – IMAM REQUESTING MUSLIM PRAYER IN FAIRFAX COUNTY SCHOOLS

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

 

Thanks to Chriss Rainey of Virginia, (one of our readers)   for sharing this information with us.    We have to be aware of what is going on around us.  Nancy

 

 

www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEn-vdEhnOw     CLICK here!  Hear Imam Johari give a sneak preview of our VOICE Fairfax Action!   The film is only three minutes long.  It is an imam letting you know this rally is about pressuring elected leaders in our area to support Muslim prayer in Fairfax Co. Schools and empower Muslims.   Notice how the information is very clear about what attire is acceptable? 

 

Dear Nancy,

They get bolder by the day.  Below is a note I sent to some unnamed recipients yesterday but I thought you also might like to see it.  As you may be aware, Fairfax County School District was at one time lauded as one of the finest in the country.  That is no longer the case, but it is still very large and very close to DC.  I suspect there is a very large population of illegal immigrants in our schools.  Girl Scout troops are always having backpack drives for “needy students.”  We just got a message from our cluster board president asking us to contribute to the “drive” to send home food for these “needy” students to eat on the weekends since they don’t get fed at home.

No doubt this population has brought the quality of education down significantly most especially because of language issues, but now we have in our area a growing Muslim population that is flexing its muscle and expecting to be heard.

VOICE is here in Virginia and it began as a progressive liberal community organizing group mostly bent on “ending poverty.”  Now judging from the list below they are now all about sanctuary and Muslim rights.  The imam in the video is dead serious.  Some would argue, well, ok, let’s have ALL prayer and then everyone will be happy.  But I would never want any child of mine exposed to Muslim religion in a setting I could not control and explain.  I don’t want the practice of that religion in schools PERIOD.

I am a Catholic today partly because I played with Catholic children when I was growing up and I was exposed to their religious practices.  So I know that even for a child, exposure to something can have a life long influence.

LEFT-FASCISTS AT UNIVERSITY OF BUFFALO SHOUT DOWN ROBERT SPENCER OF JIHADWATCH.ORG

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

 

Another example of the unacceptable  intolerance of the Left on college campuses.   Robert Spencer writes for www.JihadWatch.org  and I have sent out many of his articles regarding terrorism, Sharia Law, The Muslim Brotherhood,  and  Islam .   Nancy

Left-fascists at University of Buffalo at Robert Spencer lecture refuse to allow discussion of jihad threat

MAY 2, 2017

BY ROBERT SPENCER 98 COMMENTS

Last night I appeared at the University of Buffalo at the invitation of the courageous students of Young Americans for Freedom, who have to put up with this Left-fascist thuggery on a daily basis, while I left Buffalo this morning. I say I “appeared,” because to say “I spoke” would be exaggerating a bit. Rather, I started a few sentences, made a couple of points, in between being screamed at by Leftist and Islamic supremacist fascists who think they’re opposing fascism.

The Spectrum article below is not that bad a report from the campus newspaper, showing the Left-fascist opposition to the freedom of speech, with a few exceptions: I am not a “self-proclaimed expert on radical Islam,” as I have never proclaimed myself an expert on anything, and my work stands or falls on the basis of the evidence from the Qur’an and Sunnah, history and current events. Nor do I ever speak about “radical Islam,” which is a Western construct that does not exist in the Islamic world. And I didn’t call the fascists “uninformed fascists”; although they are indeed uninformed and think they know a great deal more than they actually do, I didn’t use that word. Finally, the reporters Ashley Inkumsah and Sarah Crowley wrote that I was “unphased” by the screaming fascists, when I was actually “unfazed.”

That said, I am grateful to Ashley Inkumsah and Sarah Crowley for a generally accurate report. Note the claims of victimhood trotted out yet again by the Muslims quoted in the article. They have hoodwinked the University of Buffalo Left-fascists into thinking that it’s “Islamophobes,” rather than jihad terrorists, who are killing people around the world. And that is one thing I said last night, although it is doubtful that the fascists heard it: the guy holding the sign “Queers Against Islamophobia” and any feminists in the audience have no idea what they’re enabling. By shutting down any discussion of the motivating ideology of the jihad threat and consigning it all to the realm of “hatred” and “bigotry,” they are only enabling that threat to grow, and one day, they may very well experience the consequences of their actions firsthand.

CULTURAL MARXISTS AT WAR WITH AMERICA

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

 

Bigot, racist, islamophobe, xenophobe, not who we are as a nation, global citizen, safe spaces, civil society, social justice, inhumane, diversity – These are just some of the words we hear every day from the Cultural Marxists whose goal is to change our way of thinking about any issue that they want to control.
If we understand what their goals are, then we have a much better chance of being able to fight their insidious ideology.   Nancy  

Liberalism is not really freedom; it thrives on divisiveness, separation, and inequality.

Cultural Marxism and Euphemisms

By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh —— Bio and Archives April 24, 2017

Cultural Marxist academics, their sycophant students, and the main stream media are at war with America—a war of violent Marxist ideology and a war of cleverly chosen words and euphemisms that appear time and time again in many college courses, high school classes, in propaganda literature, newspapers, conferences, and in the manufactured news. Cultural Marxists are regular guests on all the alphabet soup networks masquerading as real news, spewing their hatred, their disdain and disrespect for our President, and their calls to renewed violence in the streets through their masked Black Shirts.

As David Horrowitz said, “Worse yet, this is the dominant culture in our universities, in our media, in our judiciary, in government, in unions, and in the shadow political universe of non-profits, with billions of tax-free dollars at their disposal.”

Language is a powerful tool of discourse, mass political indoctrination and agitation. Marxist Democrats are quite adept at using inflammatory language and deceptive euphemisms to suit their nefarious political ends.

DEMS ASK TEACHERS TO DESTROY ‘CLIMATE DENIERS’ BOOKS

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

Democrats Ask Teachers To Destroy Books Written By ‘Climate Deniers’

April 4, 2017  Andrew Follet, Energy and Science Reporter

Three senior House Democrats asked U.S. teachers Monday to destroy a book written by climate scientists challenging the environmentalist view of global warming.

The Democrats were responding to a campaign by the conservative Heartland Institute copies of the 2015 book, “Why Climate Scientists Disagree About Global Warming” to about 200,000 science teachers. Democratic Reps. Bobby Scott of the Committee on Education, Raúl M. Grijalva of the Committee on Natural Resources, and Eddie Bernice Johnson of the Committee on Science, Space and Technology all issued a statement telling teachers to trash the book.

“Public school classrooms are no place for anti-science propaganda, and I encourage every teacher to toss these materials in the recycling bin,” Scott said. “If the Heartland Institute and other climate deniers want to push a false agenda on global warming, our nation’s schools are an inappropriate place to drive that agenda.”

The book’s three authors all hold doctorates and taught climate or related science at the university level. The book was written by former Arizona State University climatologist Dr. Craig D. Idso, James Cook University marine geology and paleontology professor Robert M. Carter, and University of Virginia environmental scientist Dr. Fred Singer.

THE CULTURAL ROOTS OF CAMPUS RAGE

Jonathan Haidt on the Cultural Roots of Campus Rage

An unorthodox professor explains the ‘new religion’ that drives the intolerance and violence at places like Middlebury and Berkeley.

April 2, 2017

New York

When a mob at Vermont’s Middlebury College shut down a speech by social scientist Charles Murray a few weeks ago, most of us saw it as another instance of campus illiberalism. Jonathan Haidt saw something more—a ritual carried out by adherents of what he calls a “new religion,” an auto-da-fé against a heretic for a violation of orthodoxy.

“The great majority of college students want to learn. They’re perfectly reasonable, and they’re uncomfortable with a lot of what’s going on,” Mr. Haidt, a psychologist and professor of ethical leadership at New York University’s Stern School of Business, tells me during a recent visit to his office. “But on each campus there are some true believers who have reoriented their lives around the fight against evil.”

These believers are transforming the campus from a citadel of intellectual freedom into a holy space—where white privilege has replaced original sin, the transgressions of class and race and gender are confessed not to priests but to “the community,” victim groups are worshiped like gods, and the sinned-against are supplicated with “safe spaces” and “trigger warnings.”

The fundamentalists may be few, Mr. Haidt says, but they are “very intimidating” since they wield the threat of public shame. On some campuses, “they’ve been given the heckler’s veto, and are often granted it by an administration who won’t stand up to them either.”

All this has become something of a preoccupation for the 53-year-old Mr. Haidt. A longtime liberal—he ran a gun-control group as an undergraduate at Yale—he admits he “had never encountered conservative ideas” until his mid-40s. The research into moral psychology that became his 2012 book, “The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion,” exposed him to other ways of seeing the world; he now calls himself a centrist.

MUSLIM PROFESSOR INSISTS JESUS WASN’T CRUCIFIED, CHRISTIAN STUDENT SUSPENDED AFTER DISAGREEING

Muslim Prof Insists Jesus Wasn’t Crucified, Christian Student Suspended After Disagreeing

by Rob Shimshock, Education Reporter      March 24, 2017

A Christian college student has been suspended after allegedly challenging his Muslim professor’s claims that Jesus wasn’t crucified and that his disciples did not think he was God.

Marshall Polston, a sophomore at Rollins College in Florida, was suspended after disagreeing with these assertions made by his professor, Areej Zufari, in his Middle Eastern humanities class, as reported by The College Fix.

“Honestly, it reminded me of some of the more radical groups I researched when abroad,” Polston told the Central Florida Post. “Whether religious or not, I believe even those with limited knowledge of Christianity can agree that according to the text, Jesus was crucified and his followers did believe he was divine… that he was ‘God.’”

After Polston challenged Zufari on this point, he received a 52 percent on an essay and says the professor refused to explain why. He was later reportedly suspended.
