Texas Takes Aim at anti-Christian, Pro-Islamic Textbooks

Approximately an hour ago I posted about the Hartford Common Council dropping Islamic prayers from the Monday meeting, after being pressured by non-Muslims. Now in Texas we see of another example of America turning against Islam. This time it is in the classrooms, which is obviously great news for our side.

Texas education board to consider rule on Islam’s portrayal in textbooks
By TERRENCE STUTZ

AUSTIN – Just when it appeared the State Board of Education was done with the culture wars, the panel is about to wade into the issue of what students should learn about Islam.

The board will consider a resolution next week that would warn publishers not to push a pro-Islamic, anti-Christian viewpoint in world history textbooks.

Members of the board’s social conservative bloc asked for the resolution after an unsuccessful candidate for a board seat called on the panel to head off any bias against Christians in new social studies books. Some contend that “Middle Easterners” are increasingly buying into companies that publish textbooks.

A preliminary draft of the resolution states that “diverse reviewers have repeatedly documented gross pro-Islamic, anti-Christian distortions in social studies texts” across the U.S. and that past social studies textbooks in Texas also have been “tainted” with pro-Islamic, anti-Christian views.

The resolution cites examples in past world history books – no longer used in Texas schools – that devoted far more lines of text to Islamic beliefs and practices than to Christian beliefs and practices.

In addition, the measure cites some books that dwelled on the Christian Crusaders massacre of Muslims in Jerusalem in 1099, while censoring Muslim massacres of Christians there in 1244 and at Antioch in 1268 – “implying that Christian brutality and Muslim loss of life are significant, but Islamic cruelty and Christian deaths are not.”

SNIP

The resolution states that pro-Islamic, anti-Christian half-truths, selective disinformation and false editorial stereotypes “still roil” some social studies textbooks nationwide, including “sanitized definitions of ‘jihad’ that exclude religious intolerance or military aggression against non-Muslims … which undergirds worldwide Muslim terrorism.”

      I live in TX, but I have a child who is 15 who lives in WA state. He came to visit me recently, and asked me when he saw me doing a lot of posting on Jihadwatch, Atlas shrugs, and here of course, if I was racist against Muslims. I stopped and asked him what race Islam was. He did not understand, so I explained that islam is not a race, it is a form of fascism, under the “burka” of a religion. He then told me that that was not what he had learned. That got my attention. I asked him where he learned about Islam, and he told me “at school.” He told me all about it, it is required as a freshman in high school to take world history. I was shocked to learn that they spent TWO WEEKS studying the 5 pillars of islam, and the “noble deeds” of the “prophet” Mohammed. They were required to learn a prayer and recite it in class aloud!!! I asked if they spent any time on the other major religions? They spent one day (with no home work) on Christianity, and it was all centered around the crusades, and the inquisition. In that one day they also covered Judaism, as if they are the same. I asked him how much time they spent on Buddhism, or Hinduism? Here is what he said, “What is Hinduism.”

        Lefty teachers taught by lefty professors. The left coast is actually much more socialist than the east coast. On the east coast they think they’re just “liberal”….they don’t make any bones about it on the west. Either way, the reason why more and more conservative people are home schooling is just for what you have described here. Might be an option for you to examine…at least as a supplement.

          How dare they? There was a story on one school taking their students to a mosque where they participated in the preaching and praying. Why is this happening?

          There is also a story on school books teaching that muslims discovered America.

      The Conservative Movement here in the states, notably the Tea Party phenomena, is made up of people that identify strongly with the “gentle” religions…and many are very devout. I have been to many Tea Parties and everyone was always polite and friendly. Part of that is that such behavior is customary and expected here in the South…and I’m not talking about Florida where most of the population seems to be northern immigrants. That said, the conservative movement is growing. I suspect that it hasn’t even really hit it’s “stride”. That means that liberal BS wll continue to be identified, zeroed in and removed….we’ll be seeing more and more of this.

      “So what are the Texans doing about the sharia courts in their state?”

      Actually, We send letters to Gov rick perry, (He never replies,) We organize anti-shariah rallies out side of shariah courts. Mostly we just get called racist a lot.
      A lot of Texans understand shariah, as we have a HUGE muslim population here. I think the heat reminds them of home. Or the wide open spaces allow them to train in “peace.”

      We will never forget the Fort Hood massacre.

      Texans defends the 2nd amendment.

      We will resist.

OK…and watch what happens next.. believe me you and your puny little weapons will vanish like decaying matter. How can you even think about making even an eye contact with ISLAM when for the past 10 years you (the so called lone superpower) are fighting with rag tag armies in the mountains of Afghanistan and cannot even make a dent in their resolve. Can you imagine what will happen when you really confront the true ISLAM? I think your puny little brains are not capable of such imagination otherwise you would never have started this kind of adventure.

          September 16, 2010 at 4:18 pm

          We started this adventure? No sir you started it on Sept.11. 2001. We helped Bin laden defeat the USSR in Afghanistan and then he turned around and came after us. He was mad because he wanted to overthrow the Saudi royal family and we were in the way because the Bush family and the House of Saud are cozy. Having said that we have thru oil purchases and exploration transformed many Middle eastern countries from rat holes in the desert to FILTHY RICH empires. You need to point your anger where it belongs and that is at your own governments.

          How typical that you rewrite events to suit your murderous needs. Just like you are trying to do with our childrens textbooks.

          And yes we know that you are 1 billion psychopaths who are delighted to die so you can go to paradise and bang white virgins endlessly. We are all too aware of your insane nature. The internet is full of videos of the unimaginable atrocities you commit as a matter of course. Truly I believe you are the living definition of evil.

          No mind is more puny than the mind of a Lucifer worshipping muslim. Islam, in the book of Revelation, is called “the false prophet”. You should definitely read it so you can learn what your fate is.

          On second thought, I’ll just post it here for you, since I am sure that you, as a muslim who believes that you are far superior than the “infidel” Christians, would never stoop to even TOUCHING a Bible, much less reading it.
          So here it is, the Word of the TRUE GOD.

          Revelation 19:20
          And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

          Revelation 20:10
          And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

          Notice that it is a “devil” that has deceived you (and Muhammad). Happy Eternity muslim.

    The American people should be ashamed of the fear they are showing to Muslims. Have they reduced you, to this…..Molly Norris, Artist Behind ‘Everybody Draw Mohammed Day’ Cartoon, Goes Into Hiding

    (Sept. 15) — So much for freedom of speech.

    At the urging of the FBI, Molly Norris, the Seattle-based illustrator and cartoonist whose satirical drawing marking ” Everybody Draw Mohammed Day ” resulted in death threats, global protests and impassioned debate about religion and censorship, has been forced to change her name and abandon her former life as a result of her controversial cartoon.

    The news that Morris had, out of concerns for her safety, decided to go into hiding was first reported in the Seattle Weekly today, a paper where Norris’ cartoons had regularly appeared:

    The gifted artist is alive and well, thankfully. But on the insistence of top security specialists at the FBI, she is, as they put it, “going ghost”: moving, changing her name, and essentially wiping away her identity. She will no longer be publishing cartoons in our paper or in City Arts magazine, where she has been a regular contributor. She is, in effect, being put into a witness-protection program — except, as she notes, without the government picking up the tab.
    Norris originally posted her tongue-in-cheek cartoon announcing May 20 as “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” on her website, which no longer seems to be operating. It was dedicated to the creators of the Comedy Central animated television series ” South Park ” after one of their episodes was censored for its portrayal of the Islamic prophet.

    As expected, Norris’ creation touched a nerve, and her drawing soon became a viral hit on the Internet, posted to a variety of high-profile websites and forwarded in countless e-mails. Soon her fictitious drawing morphed into an actual event as Facebook groups championing the idea popped up and started attracting fans.

    With media outlets covering the phenomenon, word of “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” spread across the globe, and the government of Pakistan announced it was suspending the use of Facebook to residents there.

    Norris seemed caught off guard by the whirlwind. She removed the original cartoon from her website, took pains to disassociate herself from an actual “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day” and pleaded for tolerance.

    “I did NOT ‘declare’ May 20 to be ‘Everybody Draw Mohammed Day,'” she said on her website .

    “I never started a Facebook page; I never set up any place for people to send drawings to and I never received any drawings,” she continued, adding, “I apologize to people of Muslim faith and ask that this ‘day’ be called off.”

    In June, despite her renunciation of the event spawned by her cartoon, Norris was placed on a hit list by Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, an al-Qaida-linked figure who has been tied to the Fort Hood, Texas, massacre as well as the failed bombing in Times Square, the New York Daily News reported . Shortly thereafter, the FBI contacted Norris.

    when the next 9/11 event takes place; trust me, it will,and instead of fighting back the weak ones will want to capitchilate. Fortunatly, most of the Americans will flip out, and muslims will be on the run. They have issued a fatwa against America and they will stop at nothing to do it….They will succeed, because of the weak ass holes that are to afraid of the mooks to fight back! i.e,Poor little Molly Forest. ——

    Read all about this (and Osama is even involved). But wait, it’s also in Minnesota. And in New Jersey (Nat’l Group for Communications & Computers Ltd. v. Lucent Technologies Int’l, Inc., 331 F. Supp. 2d 290 (D.N.J. 2004)).

    Oddly enough, the American courts treat this as a perfectly normal matter. In the first two cases I cited, the parties entered into a contract that provided for Sharia arbitration; the courts considered challenges to the arbitral process, and upheld the awards. The third case involved a contractual provision expressly stating that disputes about the contract would be resolved under Saudi Arabian law; the court then dutifully investigated what the Saudi rules (which are built on Sharia) would call for, and rendered judgment “based upon this Court’s review of various academic texts, the testimony of the experts, the submissions of the parties, and the Court’s understanding of the fundamental principles of Islamic law as they would be interpreted by a court in Saudi Arabia.”

    And of course the application of Sharia law was indeed a perfectly normal matter. American courts are governed by American law, but American law has long provided that parties to contracts can provide for alternative dispute resolution mechanisms (such as arbitration). American law has likewise long provided that some contractual disputes would be resolved with reference to foreign law, especially when the law is expressly provided for by the contract. It doesn’t matter whether the arbitration or the foreign law is secular or religious — secular and religious rules are treated basically equally, on the principle that the parties’ contractual choices should be honored unless some extraordinary circumstance makes it unfair to do so.

    One could argue that American courts shouldn’t be able to apply religious rules because of concerns about excessive entanglement of the government and religion. But even if that’s so in some situations, it wouldn’t apply when a court is merely asked to confirm an arbitration award rather than to applying the religious rules in the first instance, and it also wouldn’t apply when the religious rules are part of the law of a foreign country (such as Saudi Arabia).

    Now maybe Sharia law is more likely to be unfair than other systems in certain circumstances; and doubtless some people feel strong social pressure to enter into contracts endorsed by their cultural group. But people feel various kinds of pressure to enter into various kinds of contracts. American law usually enforces the contracts despite talk of pressure and unfairness. There are exceptions, but they are indeed exceptions, and the rule is enforcing contracts. Yet the skies haven’t fallen, nor do they seem likely to fall even if more contracts end up being arbitrated or otherwise evaluated under Sharia law.

    Now having posted that site – HELL NO we don’t want no SHARIA – if they want they go home- we are the United States of America with our laws, our Constitution and they sure aren’t part of it.

    During WWII, a japanese Admiral named, YAMAMOTO was quoted as saying, ‘I am afraid that we have a sleeping giant,and filled it with a terrible resolve”, un-quote!

    Tomorrow English protestants will recieve The Pope in his visit to England by burning the Bible protesting against his faliure in resolve the scandal of hundreds of children abused sexually by the catholic priests in England !!!! Admn. you need a miracle this is one !!! your false bible written by the jew Paul will be burn by christians like you not by muslims!!!ALLELUIA(in arabic YAALLAH) look to the resemblance between the two words!!!!

      You’re skating on thin ice, arselifter. Only smaller parts of the new testament is written by Paul. The whole of the bible is written by many different authors over the course of centuries. You can not even claim that your korash (the words koran and trash merged together) was written by mahound since he was illiterate which means he dictated it for other unknown writers. The korash is completely fake and written 200-300 years after mahounds not so heroic demise since he was poisoned by Aisha.

      Jesus, was Jewish, and so are you Ishmael.

      Here is a quote from the Bible (the ispired word of GOD=YHWH,) explaining your heritage as a desendant of Jews.

      Gen 25:12-18 Now this is the genealogy of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s maidservant, bore to Abraham. And these were the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: The firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; then Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, Mishma, Dumah, Massa, Hadar, Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah. These were the sons of Ishmael and these were their names, by their towns and their settlements, twelve princes according to their nations. These were the years of the life of Ishmael: one hundred and thirty-seven years; and he breathed his last and died, and was gathered to his people. They dwelt from Havilah as far as Shur, which is east of Egypt as you go toward Assyria.) He died in the presence of all his brethren.

      You are of the same bloodline as Zionism.

      Ishmael was of Jewish blood, therefore so are you.

      Islam is a false doctrine.

      2 Pe 2:1 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.

      FAIL.

    Type pad has some bugs. Several times my posts have gone missing on more than one Type Pad site. Others complain about it to. It’s NOT a moderator, so don’t take it personally.

    Spain and Israel have used pigs and pig’s lard with excellent success. Why not plant a pig at the place where the Muslims intend to build a mosque in New York?

    Remember when Muslim Suicide Bombers were exploding on Israeli buses? They dont’ do it anymore because all Israeli buses carry cans of pig’s lard in their buses. The stupid Muslim Suicide Bombers are afraid that lard will splatter on them if they explode in the buses. So they ceased that operation. That means that they’ll not enter the Muslim paradise of 72 virgins and/or 28 prepubescent little Muslim queers.

    Hey Logan,
    Heads Up!
    I don’t know much about internet security so I have software I depend on to take care of it for me.

    A few minutes ago I was blocked from your site(I assume by my security software) because of an internet attack attempt. In all my years I have never experienced this.

    It read:
    “Vulnerability blocked”
    HTTP: Misleading Application Page Request

    You get the drift. Call me crazy but I think a lot of anti-jihad sites are under attack. I had problems on Winds of Jihad yesterday too.

    Be careful out there.

      I’ve had problems with this site and some swedish blogs the last few days. My puter has blocked access to some sites for me with a message it contains malicious software. Has never happened to me before either. Looks like the arselifters and/or the lefties has been busy lately. They hacked the site of the Sweden Democrats just a couple of days before the election. They have failed miserably as we now have a party both critical of pislam, massimmigration and not oikophobic as the other parties.

  33. September 19, 2010 at 5:19 pm

    Finally I can get in here again after a few days of my puter blocking the site. Good news from Sweden. The anti-pislam party Sweden Democrats got into parliament today after the dirtiest election in 50 years or so!

    Chris, if there was a virus installed on your site, you might want to tell people what it was so they can know to get rid of it.

      I don’t know what it was, I just asked the tech guy to clean it out. I’ll see if I can find out though.

      Don’t worry I am sure Jamil will be here looking for you soon. 🙂
