Why are public school officials in this country so eager to gut our culture under the guise of multiculturalism? Even to the extent that they are blind to the very thing they seek to avoid. In this case – teaching religion in school.

What annoys me the most is the voluntary journey towards dhimmitude that our western institutions are taking. It seems no long necessary for Muslims to complain about an injustice. The educational dhimmis are now looking for ways to appease.

The “Five Pillars” of Islam – charity, fasting, prayer, belief and pilgrimage – are being taught to public school students in Nyssa, Ore., under the guise of world history, the school has confirmed to WND, even though a parent raised a complaint about the same teachings a year ago.

In a letter to parents following the concerns that were raised at that point, Supt. Don Grotting and other school officials told parents that the text called “Journey Across Time” features a chapter on “Islamic Civilizations.”

As part of that, “class activities have included guest speakers (including an American soldier serving in Iraq and a practicing Muslim woman who is an American citizen living in Mountain Home) who talked about geography, dress, climate, religion, economy and culture and student skits, in which students prepare and perform three- to five-minute skits about the tenets of Islam belief: charity, fasting, prayer, belief, and pilgrimage.”

The parent who raised the concerns a year ago, Kendalee Garner, was contacted and told WND that essentially Christianity and Judaism are not being taught. “They teach the history of Hinduism but not the tenets of its faith,” she said.

A lawyer who has argued over such teachings in a case that went to the U.S. Supreme Court said the procedures wouldn’t last 10 seconds in a public school if Christianity were being addressed.

“Would it have been ‘just cultural education’ if students were in simulated baptisms, wearing a crucifix, having taken the name of St. John and with praise banners saying ‘Praise be to Jesus Christ’ on classroom walls?”


Of course not. But the curriculum encourages proselytizing Islam.

As WND has reported the case White handled was almost a duplicate. Teachers were having students memorize Islamic prayers, wear Islamic dress and learn to behave as a Muslim under the guise of studying history.

Some parents objected and their resulting lawsuit was turned back by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals where the opinion called it “cultural education.”

The presence of such Islamic teachings is because “organized Islamists have gained control of textbook content,” according to an organization that analyzes textbooks.

And who is overseeing these curriculums? Why the fox in the hen house, of course.

The American Textbook Council has concluded that the situation is the consequence of “the interplay of determined Islamic political activists, textbook editors, and multiculturally minded social studies curriculum planners.”

It has gone so far that correcting the situation now becomes a problem, because “educational publishers and educational organizations have bought into claims propounded by Islamists – and have themselves become agents of misinformation.”

We are handing over our culture lock stock and barrel to an alien belief system that has learned from its liberal brethren on the Left how to wage cultural warfare and impose their agenda not using the legislative process but the courts and private intuitions and organizations.

Institutional and cultural jihad is growing in prominence in the West and the dhimmis and useful idiots who support it are undermining the very civilization that we have created over the last 500 years.
