A Massachusetts public school district allowed middle school students to participate in a Muslim prayer during a school sanctioned field trip to a Mosque. From the letter/permission slip sent out to parents:
“During our visit, we will get a chance to hear from Islam from members of the Cultural Center, learn about the architecture of a Mosque and observe a midday prayer service.”
A concerned parent did a bit of investigation into this Mosque and found out some interesting facts about this Mosque. It is called the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center and is run by the Muslim American Society, which has been identified by Federal authorities as the “overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood.” The Muslim Brotherhood is a political arm of the radical Islamic terror movement. According to one of the MB’s own documents from 1991 says that, “the goal of the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. is ‘settlement’, defined by the author as a form of jihad aimed at destroying Western civilization from within and allowing for the victory of Islam over other religions.”
Many of the Mosque’s leaders have ties to Islamic terrorism. In fact, the founder of the Mosque, Abdulrahman Alamoudi is currently serving a 23 year prison sentence for his terrorist related activities.
An FBI insider once described Alamoudi as an “expert in the art of deception” because of his abilty to appear to be a moderate Muslim while privately embracing a radical anti-American agenda. Behind the scenes, much of Alamoudi’s energy was devoted to fundraising activities on behalf of Hamas, Hezbollah, Osama Bin Laden and al Qaeda. He also had dealings with the Libyan regime of Muammar Qadhafi.
It is also documented that he has said, among other inflammatory anti-American statements:
– “I think if we were outside this country, we can say, ‘Oh, Allah, destroy America,’ but once we are here, our mission in this country is to change it. There is no way for Muslims to be violent in America, no way. We have other means to do it. You can be violent anywhere else but in America.”
– In October 2000, Alamoudi attended an anti-Israel protest outside the White House. Speaking to a group of Palestinian-terrorist-supporters, he declared: “I have been labeled … as being a supporter of Hamas. Anybody supporters of Hamas here? … We are all supporters of Hamas … I wish they added that I am also a supporter of Hezbollah.” – Source
The Cultural Center’s own website encourages wife beating, stating that, “Hinting at punishment is an effective means of discipline, so the reason for hanging up a whip or a stick in the house was explained in another report, where the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: ‘Hang up the whip where the members of the household can see it, for this is more effective in disciplining them.’” – Since this controversy, it seems that the ISBCC has taken this particular page down from their website, however, I found a copy of the report here.
Thankfully, the field trip was videotaped by one of the parents whose child was on the trip. The video plainly shows one of the Mosque’s spokespersons telling the students, “You have to believe in Allah, and Allah is the one God, the only one worthy of worship, all forgiving, all merciful.” The same spokesperson goes on to practice revisionist history saying, “Islam was actually very advanced in terms of recognizing women’s rights. At the time of the Prophet Muhammad, women were allowed to express their opinions and vote. In this country, women didn’t gain that right until less than a hundred years ago; so Islam was very advanced in terms of recognizing women’s rights.”
Now we know that this is simply not true. In Muhammad’s 7th century rule of Islamic Arabia, he was a supreme ruler and did not allow ANYONE (neither women OR men) to vote, claiming divine sanction from Allah himself. And in today’s Saudi Arabia, men and women have very limited political rights. In fact in Saudi Arabia today, women are not even allowed to drive automobiles.
The school has since apologized to parents and promised to not let this happen in the future. However, I wish to warn parents everywhere that the religion of Islam is very big on practicing “dawah,” which literally means “proselytizing for Islam.” This goes back to what the Cultural Center’s founder, Abdulrahman Amoudi espoused when he called on Muslims to abandon violence in America because, “once we are here, our mission in this country is to change it.” An Islamic Dawah organization offers a guidebook to help convert young schoolchildren to Islam. From their website:
Students are routinely exposed in their classroom to new information and opinions, hence they tend to be more receptive to new beliefs and ideas. – Source
Schools are therefore fertile grounds where the seeds of Islam can be sowed inside the hearts of non-Muslim students. Muslim students should take ample advantage of this opportunity and present to their schoolmates the beautiful beliefs of Islam.
Where is the ACLU in all of this? While the ACLU did sue a school in Minnesota because it was proselytizing Islam, they must feel that in Massachusetts, the separation of church and state only applies to the Judea-Christian religions. The ACLU’s New England Education Director, Nancy Murray is a strong supporter of the Muslim American Society.
Once again, it falls to us radical, right wing, domestic terrorists (otherwise known as average Americans) to stand up for our children and our way of life. I just thought you should know.
