Astute Parents Alert To Jihadist Intrusion

A Virginia school system shut down classes for a day over protests that erupted in response to a Geography assignment that would have required students to write in Arabic the fundamental Islamic statement of belief known as the shahada.

If Jews or Muslims rebuffed an assignment to write John 3:16 or “Jesus Is Lord”, would the leftwing media formulate coverage of this story in such a manner so as to paint those standing up for their First Amendment rights against the state attempting to impose a particular religious perspective as the villains?

Students are rarely taught English penmanship these days.

So why is time being spent now in regards to what amounts to a Third World language?

Before progressives look down their haughty noses in condemnation at those seeming to oppose the celebration of pluralism, perhaps they ought to realize to what it was these parents were reacting.

In Islam, to be considered a Muslim, the primary requirement is to recite with conviction the disputed statement that the students would have been required to write.

That is, in essence, “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad was his prophet.”

In the eyes of jihadists and allied extremists, if students sign their names to such a statement, is that considered a binding proclamation of conversion?

If so, should jihadists discover the names of students having completed this assignment reverting back to their Christian professions of faith and ways of life, what is to prevent fatwas from being drawn up calling for the violent execution of these unsuspecting pupils?

For the punishment regularly called upon those leaving Islam for another faith is often death.

The parents noticing this subtle subversion of the public school system should not be looked down upon as unsophisticated rubes or rednecks.

Instead, they ought to be commended for exercising a degree of vigilance and discernment many in this day have been conditioned to overlook for fear of the reprisals that might be imposed for failing to surrender to the tyranny of political correctness.

Thank you for posting this. I am appalled! To think, we can no longer say "one nation UNDER GOD" (upon which this country was founded), yet we must be allowed to say whatever supports other nations and/or religions. All I can say is, "Come quickly, Lord Jesus!" I am glad that I only have another ten or so years here as I do not what to see what America's future holds.

Indeed, Frederick, these parents are wise to be vigilant. Most parents have little idea what passes for learning in the public school system, because we have been too trusting and too busy…but I hope we are all waking up. That any religious text and/or commitment or statement of faith would be used as a calligraphy lesson indicates that the offending school system considers any religious belief to be meaningless. They are only offering such of the Muslim faith because it is politically correct to do so, currently. Religious belief should not be taken so lightly. May I copy your post to show to my children, please? Some are teachers and I would like them to realize what is occurring in other counties in the US. We, as a family, do not have any children of school age, yet, but we should be prepared to become vigilant when that time comes. Then again, I suppose that all adults should be vigilant about all the children that are in public schools, shouldn't they?
