    Protesters outside the Houston ISD's Arabic Immersion Magnet School carry signs reading "Qatar out of my school" and "Everything I ever cared to know about Islam was taught to me by Muslims on 9-11-2001" on the first day of school, Monday, Aug. 24, 2015. |

    Protesters outside the Houston ISD’s Arabic Immersion Magnet School carry signs reading “Qatar out of my school” and “Everything I ever cared to know about Islam was taught to me by Muslims on 9-11-2001” on the first day of school, Monday, Aug. 24, 2015. |

    A group of adult protesters likely spoiled the first day of class for 132 knee-high pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students at Texas’ Houston Independent School District (HISD) who were on their way to a new Arabic immersion program at their school.

    On Monday morning, about 30 adult protesters spread out around the school fence holding signs and waving American and Israeli flags, the Houston Chronicle reported.

    “Everything I needed to know about Islam I learned from Muslims on 9-11-2001,” one sign read. “Qatar out of our school,” another sign stated.


    Advertisment

    Protesters told the Houston Chronicle that they don’t have problems with “other immersion schools or with independent Arabic language classes, but said the school was anti-American, and that immigrants should be ‘assimilated.’” The population at the Arabic school is about 30 percent Hispanic, 30 percent white, and 30 percent African American, according to the HISD news blog.

    This is the first semester at HISD’s Arabic Immersion Magnet School (or AIMS), a program that offers students the opportunity to spend half their day in classes taught in Arabic and half taught in English. The program welcomes children from 40 different Houston-area zipcodes, HISD Superintendent Terry Grier said.

    Behind Spanish, Arabic is the second most common foreign language spoken at home among people living in the Houston Independent School District.

    HISD opened a Mandarin immersion program in 2012 without any issues and has a Spanish dual language program that expanded from 31 to 52 campuses this year. The school district is also in talks to open a Hindi immersion program and a French immersion program.

    Studies suggest that giving bilingual education to children can provide long-lasting benefits, like delaying dementia; teaching better self-regulation skills needed for focus and self-control; increasing children’s awareness of new sounds like the ones they hear in the second language; and boosting creativity.

    Though Houston’s Arabic-speaking population hovers around 23,000, not all Arabic-speaking individuals are Muslims. In fact, only 20 percent of Muslims worldwide speak the language.

    Even so, anti-Muslim activity is on the rise in Houston and around the country. In February, an accelerant was used to burn down an Islamic community and education center, a suspected arson that came just days after a gunman shot to death three Muslims in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. There have been at least five anti-mosque incidents in Texas between 2006 and 2010, the American Civil Liberties Union found.

        I will share something with all of you. I’m extremely spiritual. All of my life I’ve been told that there is a god, and I need Jesus because of it. I hate to you this but that idea almost killed me more ways than one, I even wrote a book about it, I wrote with my heart more than my brain, I’m trying to make sense of why God failed me. I learned why; I failed God, I failed to trust my instincts, instead I trusted my peers. There is now guy upstairs calling the shots, and now we need to worship him with Joker’s guidance. Believe this—> We are God.

        Begin a new religion that everyone can believe in and be happy with. I have salvation, but also much more. Worship yourselves first, then think about someone else. Without you, there is no one else.

          ‘answering Islam’ and islamreviews are paid Islamophobe site. They are full of fallacies which is no surprise as they are run by some so-called Christians with little to no knowledge of Islam but the more hate against ‘the other religion’. It is very telling that both sides do not want to declare who is running them and where their expertise is coming from.

          There is no logical reason to believe anything the bible has to say, unless it is 100% true, and its very easy to prove that it is not 100% true. and if it is not 100% true, then it has to be the work of man, not god. and even christians will admit that all works of man are fallible. therefor the bible is fallible, and should be disregarded as fiction.

          the bible is full of stories stolen from other religions prior to the birth of christ, these stories range from pagan beliefs to ancient tales of gilgamesh (noahs flood was gilgameshs flood, gilgamesh adventure existed 900 years before the first recorded version of the bible) and Zoroastrianism (christs birth is Zoroastrian in origin, up to 600 years prior to the supposed birth of christ)

          the new testament, at the VERY best, was told from human to human for 90 years after the death of christ before it was written down the first recorded time. have you ever played the ‘phone game’ where you whisper something in someones ear, and they whisper it to someone else. after 90 years of playing this game, how close to the original story do you think it was when written down? well, suddenly a martyr became the son of god, died, came back to life, hung around for a short bit and disappeared again. oh, and now he walked on water, changed water to wine, and other fantastic stories that you would tell a child.

          and i can keep going..

          The birth story of Moses is suspiciously similar to that of the birth of Sargon, an Akkadian monarch from the 3rd millennium
          The Bible says that hares and coneys are unclean because they “chew the cud” but do not part the hoof. But hares and coneys are not ruminants and they do not “chew the cud.”
          Joshua says that those who try to rebuild Jericho will be accursed by God, and will have to sacrifice both their oldest and their youngest sons in its construction. But Jericho still exists today, and is often considered to be the world’s oldest, continuously occupied city

        who WOULD commit sin and seek
        forgiveness from allah, and he would have pardoned them.

        islam is like cancer to the body

        • Uhhhh, this isn’t about Islam. It’s about the Arabic language. You sound as ignorant as those sign-wavers. Reading is fundamental.

          • Roger

            Uhhhh, it’s more than language, directly from their training guild…

            “Among Muslims, the language of the Qur’an and Sunnah is Arabic, and therefore it is the main source of communication about Islamic culture.”
            “The idea of learning one’s language and culture is that it could lead to a more compassionate population and a welcome manifestation of national diversity…”

            and we currently have more than enough Islamic “manifestation” :-O

            • Allgone

              Is “their training guild” in charge of language lessons in Houston’s public schools? Bet not.

                I was looking at the Houston, Texas schools website.
                They have a waiting list to get into the dual immersion Arabic program!
                They also have waiting lists for many of their bilingual and dual immersion programs at other schools. It looked like most of them were Spanish/English.

                • Allgone

                  Texas’ Demographics explain that. I have envied for years how so many Europeans are multi-lingual. I realize the relative size of the countries play an role, but still…
                  We require a foreign language for HS diplomas and most college degrees. It seems teaching languages at first, rather than at last would be much more effective.

                  • Brenda

                    When I hear about the emphasis that is put on learning other languages (like the Europeans) I wonder why we cut back on language offering more and more.
                    When I was in high school (town of 25, 000) there were 3 languages offered at high school: Spanish, French, and German. I took Spanish and French.
                    Now, I don’t know. I live in another town. The school here offers Spanish and French.
                    At our charter school, the languages that have been offered at one time or another have been French, Spanish, Japanese, Mandarin, and American Sign Language.
                    At the community college, we can study Spanish, Portuguese (only one session this semester) and Sign Language. French was deleted recently.
                    That said, I have pen pals in many countries and they love learning English. However, they also comment that not everyone wants to learn a foreign language.
                    I think some of us may be hard-wired for language loving.

                      Perhaps part of that Left brain-Right brain thing.
                      Our school system offers fewer foreign languages because of budget cuts. No arts, sports, fewer electives, only 6 classes.

                      • Brenda

                        We are fortunate to have a charter school with many enrichment classes.
                        Yes, art, music, drama, languages…
                        It is a homeschool charter school, so basic subjects are usually taught at home (support at school). It is the best of both worlds.

                        • Allgone

                          I could help my kids with a lot of things. Calculus wasn’t one of them. So our local magnet program for Science, Mathematics and Technology was the school of choice.

                        • Brenda

                          Math is not my strong point either. We have plenty of support from those who know higher levels of math at our charter school.
                          So, a magnet school usually has a concentration of some kind (art, technology, etc.)
                          A charter school is more open and has its own board as opposed to a magnet that is more connected to a school district.

                          Both are public schools funded by the government.

                        • Allgone

                          Yep. We have Charters as well. The other was just a better fit for us.

        so what is the IQ of these people
        especially the homeless looking lady in the front
        and the biker and the drug addict in the back row?

        • Roger

          Huh ? The “lady in the front” is in Houston… in August ! She looks fine,
          the IQ question is for hijab wearin’ parents in the video… that makes no sense ! :-O

          Integration to Americanism .. vs .. 7th century assimilation .. consider the difference

          • Allgone

            The hijab is a matter of personal choice. Like big hair and long sleeves and skirts at the Dugger homestead.

            • Roger

              Oh okay… and bikini shops flourish along the coast of Islamic states.
              Of course within a “particular” culture, the oppression of individual freedoms might
              simply be explained by Moe’s aversion to the debauchery of western culture… right ?

              • Allgone

                This video is from Texas. What “Islamic” countries do has bupkis to do with what happens in Texas. There are no laws against Bikinis in Texas. But there is also no law against wearing modest clothing. The hijab is no more outlandish or, a threat to you, than the clothing worn by Orthodox Jews or some Christian sects. Not to mention old-fashioned Catholic nuns.
                In this country, we have freedom of expression. That means if someone wants to wear modest clothing, they can.

                • Roger

                  Woodies at the sight of naked ankles… got it.
                  Let’s backtrack a bit shall we… my original reply was to the posted insinuation of concerned Americans being drug addicted idiots, not amused. As to your example: modesty or tradition may appear similar, but they’re not imposed by state… therein lies the cultural difference

                  • Allgone

                    The “insinuation of concerned Americans being drug addicted idiots” is between you and Sean.
                    A tradition of modesty is not limited to Muslim women. And as I said before, what happens in other countries has nothing to do with Texas or any other of these United States. In this country a woman is not required to follow any traditions unless she chooses. My daughter went to high school with several young ladies who chose to wear hijab, while their mothers did not. It was their choice.

                    • Roger

                      Nope, posted insinuations were for public viewing.
                      Not arguing freedom of expression for anyone, but Muslim-American inability (at least perceived) of integration to “our” culture. Valid concern, based on cultural origin of many.

                      • Allgone

                        “between you and Sean” meaning I was not referring to such insinuations.
                        Muslim-Americans are by definition, part of ‘our’ culture. There is no need to integrate into something of which one is a part.
                        Perception or opinion of what some might consider an inability is meaningless. It matters no more than someone not understanding a Jew keeping kosher. Or the Church Garments worn by Mormons.

                        • Roger

                          “by definition”, not necessarily, thus the protest,
                          Muslim-American, possibly – Islam in America, not… the former is generally called traitor to faith by fundamentalist, the latter an ideological enemy and grave concern.

                          Mormon garments are weird, if they beheaded people we’d have to cull the herd

                        • Allgone

                          Muslim-American. Catholic-American. Jewish-American. Any other hyphens we want to name. All American. All part of “Our” culture, since we, the Muslims, the Catholics, the Jews, and other hyphens, all helped invent what is “American” culture. The freedom to wear, think, believe, or hold sacred what we wish is absolutely, fundamentally, American.
                          If you don’t care for church garments, don’t wear them. Same with beards or long hair. Long sleeves and skirts, tefillin or tallit. It is our choice as as Americans how we dress and what we believe.
                          Beheading people is not common in the US. It is not a religious act. It is not covered by the First Amendment to the Constitution. But you know that. Just as you know that has absolutely nothing to do with teaching children a second language. Or women wearing modest clothing.

                        • Roger

                          “Muslim-American, possibly – Islam in America, not”, hyphenated class distinctions do not constitute Americanism. To the guise of your reply… No, combined curriculum of language “and” culture was the protest… Islamic fundamentalism opposes American values.

                          You’re like a Twin Cities pirate, home of Somalia immigration and Mint Press… Aaargh

                        • Allgone

                          Admitting the protest was not about anything connected to the school, and therefore completely out of place, is a good first step.The school is teaching a language. Not a religion.

                          Many groups are hyphenated. Some choose to do so. Some are labeled by others.

                          There is no “fundamental Islamic opposition to American values”. There is opposition to American values by fundamentalists”. And it’s not limited to Muslims. But part of the cost of a free society is recognizing our rights are not dependent on being part of the majority. You continue to sound as if you feel you have a right to limit the religious beliefs of other Americans. And that simply isn’t true.

                          I’ve never visited the “Twin Cities” and have no reason to do so.

                        • Brenda

                          America is described as a “melting pot”, but I like the “mosaic” idea better.
                          (Jimmy Carter used that illustration, I believe.)
                          Hyphenated names and other names are often given by others and not the group themselves. I knew a black man who didn’t like the expression African-American. He said, “I have never been to Africa and don’t follow any African customs. I am American.”
                          The same with the word “Hispanic”. It was given by others and some Latinos don’t like it.
                          It is a little difficult to be 100 % politically correct.

                        • Allgone

                          Each of us can only endeavor to interact with others with courtesy and respect. If I do or don’t wish to be considered ‘this or that’, then I should feel comfortable making my wishes known.
                          I never cared for the “melting pot” analogy myself. “Mosaic” or even “Stew” seem better to me. Each piece maintains its identity but works with the others to produce something wonderful, beautiful… or delicious!

                        • Brenda

                          Maybe some people think that one of the ingredients in that stew has gone bad (or never was fresh).
                          I don’t think it is easy to assimilate into any group or country completely without giving up a real individual piece of yourself. I lived in another country for 7 years and I thought that I was acting completely like the mainstream there. Now, after the fact, I think that I was only partially successful, even though I thought that I was completely emerged into the culture. I tried to only speak the native language only, avoided to a certain extent Americans who were not “blending”. I was trying not to stick out as “different” or foreign.

                        • Allgone

                          A mosaic, a tapestry… each and every stone or thread different but all necessary for the whole picture.
                          I’m a lifelong resident of one state. A diverse state to be sure, but I’m not an expert on ‘blending in’. Because I’ve always fit it. I’ve always been sure of my ‘place’.
                          I wouldn’t trade anything for all the wonderful people I’ve been blessed to meet or get to know. From all over the world. Some visitors, some now making their home here. And I wouldn’t want us to all ‘blend in’. I like all the different flavors, colors, textures, that have come into my life, my ‘place. And I haven’t been diminished by any of them. I’ve been greatly enriched.

              Wow. Just saw this one.
              Hijab is considered a sign of modesty for women.
              Can you imagine not having the right to wear what you want?
              I know some see it as oppression, but in places where it is now against the law to wear in public, it is sad if the woman prefers to cover her head.
              Catholic women used to cover their head when in church. It is not required anymore, but some women still do it. Their choice.

              • Allgone

                I guess it only counts as “oppression” if you disagree with it. I’ve pointed out numerous times that a hijab is no more subversive than the wardrobe of Orthodox Jews, Old school Nuns, and others. Too no avail.

                • Brenda

                    Bigotry, like prejudice, is always unwarranted. Vilification and demonization of someone just because of their religion is counter to the principles of our Country.

                          its a pic of two gay teens being hanged after a sharia court sentenced them to death for being gay. Your religion demands this for gays. The hijab is an outward sigh that you are devout. Do you also support the killing of gay teens for being gay? If not, aren’t you going against the teachings of you faith?

                        • Allgone

                          Just another reason to be glad to be an American. In America we don’t have to worry as much about a theocracy. But it takes eternal vigilance.
                          The LGBT community doesn’t have near the protections for their civil rights that they should. But many of us try very hard to keep an eye on the Right Wing and their efforts to install their version of religious law.
                          As far as your view on the meaning of headscarves, that’s all they are. Your opinions have no force of law. And they certainly have no effect on the Constitutional rights of others.

          Why are you taking Quranic verses out of context like that? When you don’t what what your about don’t say it all. in other words don’t take verses literally. All Quranic verses have a meaning inside and if your brain is strong enough you would try to understand that verse. This verse was revealed during the Battle of Badr and has nothing to do with spirituality. Stop taking “violent” verses in the Quran to attack Islam, when in fact you know nothing about Islam. Hopefully you shall see the light of Islam.

              Again you are taking verses out of context, you are attacking Islam because you are insecure. READ the Quran there is not a single verse saying to kill a person unjustly. ISIS, al-qaeda and various other groups killing innocent people is strictly condemned in Islam. Those people are not real Muslims, they are ignorant people like you

          Stand in silence in the presence of the Sovereign LORD, for the awesome day of the LORD’s judgment has come. The LORD has prepared his people for a great slaughter and has chosen their executioners. “On that day of judgment,” says the LORD, “I will punish the leaders and princes of Judah and all those following pagan customs. Yes, I will punish those who participate in pagan worship ceremonies, and those who steal and kill to fill their masters’ homes with loot. “On that day,” says the LORD, “a cry of alarm will come from the Fish Gate and echo throughout the newer Mishneh section of the city. And a great crashing sound will come from the surrounding hills. Wail in sorrow, all you who live in the market area, for all who buy and sell there will die. “I will search with lanterns in Jerusalem’s darkest corners to find and punish those who sit contented in their sins, indifferent to the LORD, thinking he will do nothing at all to them. They are the very ones whose property will be plundered by the enemy, whose homes will be ransacked. They will never have a chance to live in the new homes they have built. They will never drink wine from the vineyards they have planted. “That terrible day of the LORD is near. Swiftly it comes – a day when strong men will cry bitterly. It is a day when the LORD’s anger will be poured out. It is a day of terrible distress and anguish, a day of ruin and desolation, a day of darkness and gloom, of clouds, blackness, trumpet calls, and battle cries. Down go the walled cities and strongest battlements! “Because you have sinned against the LORD, I will make you as helpless as a blind man searching for a path. Your blood will be poured out into the dust, and your bodies will lie there rotting on the ground.” Your silver and gold will be of no use to you on that day of the LORD’s anger. For the whole land will be devoured by the fire of his jealousy. He will make a terrifying end of all the people on earth. (Zephaniah 1:7:18 NLT)

            They don’t do that any more. They rather stay on the wage side of things, because their hasbarah colleges have been refuted on all of the verses they have been digging out multiple times. Their strategy is to tab into the emotional pictures they have been trying to feed to society about ‘extremist Muslims’ and the pictures that circulate daily in the media. They HAVE to rely on this, because in endless discussion on the scriptures they lost all credibility.

              • nuur12345

                They do not name you Quranic verses to discuss them, because you are likely to refute their suggested meanings. Staying vague is preferable from the perspective of those who like to defame Islam.

                    The killing non-Muslim verses spoke of the polytheists at Mecca a long time ago. You can see this by reading the verses before and after. You can provide other out of context verses, but you should see these first

                    “Let there be no hostility except to those who practice oppression.” [Quran 2:193]

                    “But if the enemy incline towards peace, do thou (also) incline towards peace, and trust in God: for He is One that heareth and knoweth (all things).” (Quran, 8:61)

                    “O you who believe! stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you swerve, and if you distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well acquainted with all that you do.” [Quran 4:135]

                    “Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors.” [Quran 2:190]

                    “Say, ‘The truth is from your Lord’: Let him who will believe, and let him who will, reject (it): (Quran, 18:29)

                    “Therefore, you remind (them), for you are only a reminder; you are not a watcher over them (88:21-22).”

                    “Allah does not forbid you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes – from being righteous toward them and acting justly toward them. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly. [60:8 Quran]

                    The Quran doesn’t mention Aisha, and her age is disputed. Those under the age of 15 couldn’t join the Battle of Badr, which would mean she’s a bit older if she followed the rules and participated. Much of the world was cool with pedos at the time, which is sick. Jerry Lee Lewis (famous rock star) married his 13 year old cousin when he was 22 in the US. That was only a little over half a century ago. History is disgusting, but that’s a cultural problem only

                    Now now Justin, you’re being disingenuous. Here is 18:29, which basically says “believe what you want BUT if youi don’t believe what I tell you to believe you will be punished”: “”The truth is from your Lord, so whoever wills – let him believe; and whoever wills – let him disbelieve.” Indeed, We have prepared for the wrongdoers a fire whose walls will surround them. And if they call for relief, they will be relieved with water like murky oil, which scalds [their] faces. Wretched is the drink, and evil is the resting place.”

          • KingHasNoClothes

            Try this – oh – I have provided the context for this one to save you the trouble: “The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) were reluctant to have intercourse with the female captives in the presence of their husbands who were unbelievers. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Qur’anic verse: (Qur’an 4:24) ‘And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.'” This is the background for verse 4:24 of the Qur’an. Not only does Allah grant permission for women to be captured and raped, but allows it to even be done in front of their husbands. (See also Muslim 3432 & Ibn Kathir/Abdul Rahman Part 5 Page 14)

            • Iqbal

              If we cherry-pick verses from the Bible the way we
              cherry-pick verses from the Quran, we can “read” the Bible exactly
              like we “read” the Quran and come to the exact same conclusions about
              Christianity that we do about Islam being a religion of hate, violence, and
              oppression.

              Deuteronomy 3:3-7New International Version (NIV)

              3 So
              the Lord our God also gave into our hands Og king of Bashan and all
              his army. We struck them down, leaving no survivors. 4 At
              that time we took all his cities. There was not one of the sixty cities
              that we did not take from them—the whole region of Argob, Og’s kingdom in
              Bashan. 5 All these cities were fortified with high
              walls and with gates and bars, and there were also a great many unwalled
              villages. 6 We completely destroyed[a] them,
              as we had done with Sihon king of Heshbon, destroying[b] every
              city—men, women and children. 7 But all the
              livestock and the plunder from their cities we carried off for ourselves.

              • KingHasNoClothes

                I agree – the Bible DOES contain a lot of violence. However, there are two very important differences. You quote from the Old testament (of course). This is descriptive, whereas the Koran’s violent verses are prescriptive. Look at the language you have quoted above – particularly the tense – you will see it is the past tense (“We Struck..; There was….; All these cities were…..; We completely destroyed……) and you get teh picture. It is all past tense describing events that have occurred. Contrast this with the tense of teh Koran – and you will see that it is “imperative” (Strike terror into the hearts of the disbelievers….; lie in wait and ambush them….; etc etc). See the difference? Secondly, the Old Testament in Christianity has been abrogated – or superseded – by the new Testament, where you will not find exhortations to murder and violence. The opposite is true of teh Koran, whereby the more peaceful Meccan verses are abrogated by the more violent Medinan verses – and the calls to violence are open-ended.

                • Iqbal

                  How many innocent people were killed in Iraq duting the last war. Over a million. But I guess Chritianity does not count that, because you are the so called good guys.
                  How many Jews did the Christians massacre dutring the Holocaust?

                  • KingHasNoClothes

                    Most of those killed in Iraq were killed by other Iraqi Muslims. As regards the Holocaust – yes most Germans were Christian, but there were also Muslim battalions from Yugoslavia fighting for Hitler. The holocaust was not done “in the name of Christianity” but in the name of an atheist supremacist movement. Note that the countries fighting against Hitler were overwhelmingly Christian (even most Russians were Christian even though teh Soviets – like the Nazis – were atheists.)

              • E benAbuya

                I love it when illiterates make bogus comparisons between the Torah and the Qur’an regarding the treatment of female captives. Here’s the actual text:

                “10 When thou goest forth to battle against thine enemies, and the LORD thy God delivereth them into thy hands, and thou carriest them away captive, 11 and seest among the captives a woman of goodly form, and thou hast a desire unto her, and wouldest take her to thee to wife; 12 thou shalt bring her home to thy house; and she shall shave her head, and pare her nails; 13 and she shall put the raiment of her captivity from off her, and shall remain in thy house, and bewail her father and her mother a full month; and after that thou mayest go in unto her, and be her husband, and she shall be thy wife. 14 And it shall be, if thou have no delight in her, then thou shalt let her go whither she will; but thou shalt not sell her at all for money, thou shalt not deal with her as a slave, because thou hast humbled her.
                (Deuteronomy 21:10-14)

      • Judith

        Mercy me, these little children having a hard enough time learning English and Spanish. Now they want to add another language and this will be really confusing to them. I think it should be offered as an alternative class later on when they are older if they want.

        • Allgone

          As pointed out in the article, children are much more able to learn languages earlier, rather than later. This is a magnet program. It is voluntary. I believe there were considerably more applications than there were places available.

          • Brenda

            It is proven that children learn a language quicker at an early age. If at first it seems that they are confused, we have to give them more credit than that. They are smart and they will sort it out. If a parent believes that the child is not comfortable in the program, they can opt back out.

            • Allgone

              Did you mean to reply to Judith? Because I think you and I are on the same page here.

              • Brenda

                Seems we might be on the same page.

                  I’m afraid we seem to be a minority. I don’t expect miracles from the ignorant or the afraid. Few of us know everything and fewer still are never afraid. But I expect better from the well educated. From those who should know better.

                  “I think these “immersion” programs are a load of crap, designed to
                  move people away from the language, and therefore the culture, of this
                  country”.

                  Such a statement from an average person, such as myself, might not be unexpected. But this comes from one David Partington, who gives this CV:

                  ” …the holder of the Ph.D. in Arabic studies (Princeton, 1961), and as
                  a Middle-Eastern librarian successively at Princeton, Michigan, and
                  Harvard, I think I recognize the importance of language study. My
                  professional career was involved with acquiring, cataloging, and making
                  accessible many hundred of thousand texts in various Islamic languages…”

                  Such a statement from someone who should know better is disheartening.

                  • Brenda

                    A dual immersion program is not trying to move people away from English. It is quite the opposite. It is trying to make students proficient in two language. All the richer!

                    Sad to hear that a person so “educated” frowns on students learning more than the average student.

                    Fear… you mentioned fear…. that’s a big part of all this.

                          I think that’s something to which we should all aspire. I don’t claim any religious exhortation. But a favorite fictional character once said “I seek no truth that cannot be taught”.

                          I’m not an anthropologist. I’m sure one would be more able to address the idea. My amateur view is that humans are ‘hard-wired’ for certain things. Fear of the ‘other’ is one of them. Sharing of resources, admitting that someone else might have the same value? All that sort of thing.

                        • Brenda

                          There is the basic fight or flight fear. That’s an instinct, too, right?

                          I hope that those students had a good second day of school.
                          I wonder if we can follow up on the success of their program.

                        • Allgone

                          I’m pretty sure that has more to do with humanity’s inability to share than with any aspect of a “higher power”.

          Dual language programs are voluntary. In our small town, there is usually more applicants than spaces available. Ours is English/Spanish (here in California), but I wouldn’t mind if other languages were offered.

        Except I know, and you should know, the truth about the underlying intent of this school. Its purpose is to teach Arabic so that the student can “study” the Qur’an in the original language. You seem reasonably informed. You must know that Wahabis believe this is the only true way to educate. Further, at this moment you may not be able to find much in the written curricula that would seem to support the idea that teaching Islam is the real intent, but you need to understand that the unwritten curricula, the one that the Arabic-speaking teachers will have, is to support instruction in Islam. There is no other purpose for this. If you are a truly globally-minded person, one aware of what is happening in our world, you would see a move toward an educational system that at its core supports the belief that we are to tolerate all others and their beliefs. There seems to be an exception for the dominant system of Christianity, since most (if not all) of those developing the curricula come from societies where Christianity is dominant, and they are of the mindset that this dominance needs to be brought to its knees, so Christianity isn’t much tolerated. But a socio-political death cult is. It is promoted as “peaceful,” even though its basic tenets teach death and subjugation. You’ll probably deny this, but therein is the crux. You are part of the group seeking to subjugate the dominant belief system, even if blindly, or you are motivated by the same desire as those behind this school, or you are simply highly ignorant. This school is nothing more than a hidden agenda, supported blindly by a modernly progressive attempt to appear open-minded, flexible, caring, risk-taking, balanced, knowledgeable, communicative, thinking, reflective, and inquiring. Take that list and google it. Find out where it comes from and seek to identify the underlying progressive cluster-F. that it comes from. This list of attributes sounds good, but there are 1.5 billion people who, in varying stages of commitment, believe that those attributes don’t even apply to others who believe slightly differently than themselves, let alone the other 6 billion who have a very different worldview altogether. It is all part of a world tour of blind idiots exploring caves underground while the tsunami advances from the East.

          Please provide a verse in the Quran you think teaches violence. Muslims are only required to defend when they’re being oppressed. I bet you’ll give me a verse without understanding the verses before or after which places it in the right context. It seems to me you assume too much (no offense). You should understand most atheists and some theists view Christians as doing the same thing you accused Muslims of, wanting control and change. Statistics also don’t support your view. Here’s verses against your claims

          “Let there be no hostility except to those who practice oppression.” [Quran 2:193]

          “But if the enemy incline towards peace, do thou (also) incline towards peace, and trust in God: for He is One that heareth and knoweth (all things).” (Quran, 8:61)

          “Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors.” [Quran 2:190]

          “Say, ‘The truth is from your Lord’: Let him who will believe, and let him who will, reject (it): (Quran, 18:29)

          “Who spend [in the cause of Allah ] during ease and hardship and who restrain anger and who pardon the people – and Allah loves the doers of good; (Quran 3:134)

          “Allah does not forbid you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes – from being righteous toward them and acting justly toward them. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly. [60:8 Quran]

            I’d settle for something that indicates Islam, or the Quran have anything to do with learning a language in a public school.

            By the ‘reasoning’ I’ve seen displayed in these comments, a kid taking Latin means a secret plan to convert the unwary to Catholicism and recruit them for the IRA.

            • nuur12345

              Spanish is actually coming from the root language Latin and also contains a substancial amount Arabic terms and root words – I think all this considered its dangerous and should be cancelled from the school program, LOLOLOL!!!!!

                And there’s waaaay too much German and Latin in English, so that’s no good either. The only answer is to come up with “American”. But that won’t work either… Amerigo Vespucci was Italian. Can’t have that.

                Well, you’re not off to a great start are you? Definition: “Tirade”: “a long, angry speech of criticism or accusation”. Mine was a succinct comment, not a tirade. There are many many verses, but here try 4:24 just for openers – where the rape of non-muslim female captives is justified. Oh – and I know how muslims and their “useful idiot apologists loe the cop-out “you don’t understand teh context” – so I have included the context also:

                “The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) were reluctant to have intercourse with the female captives in the presence of their husbands who were unbelievers. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Qur’anic verse: (Qur’an 4:24) ‘And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.'” This is the background for verse 4:24 of the Qur’an. Not only does Allah grant permission for women to be captured and raped, but allows it to even be done in front of their husbands. (See also Muslim 3432 & Ibn Kathir/Abdul Rahman Part 5 Page 14)

                  You speak of certain translations and hadiths that some Muslims believe. No Muslim believes all hadiths. It’s not the most common translation. The Quran said many times not to believe anything after, including hadiths. Most Muslims would disagree, though.

                  Qur’an 45:6 These are the verses of Allah which We recite to you in truth. Then in what statement after Allah and His verses will they believe?

                  Qur’an 6:114—Shall I seek for a judge other than Allah, when He it is Who has sent down to you the Book fully explained?

                  Qur’an 27:1—These are verses of the Qur’an—a book that makes (things) clear.

                  Qur’an 41:3—A Book, whereof the verses are explained in detail …

                • Iqbal

                  When you march up to attack a city, make its people
                  an offer of peace. 11 If they accept and open their
                  gates, all the people in it shall be subject to forced labor and
                  shall work for you. 12 If they refuse to make peace
                  and they engage you in battle, lay siege to that city.13 When
                  the Lord your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all
                  the men in it.14 As for the women, the children, the
                  livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as
                  plunder for yourselves. And you may use the plunder
                  the Lord your God gives you from your enemies. 15 This
                  is how you are to treat all the cities that are at a distance from you and
                  do not belong to the nations nearby.

                  16 However,
                  in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an
                  inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. 17 Completely
                  destroy[a] them—the
                  Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites—as
                  the Lord your God has commanded you. 18 Otherwise,
                  they will teach you to follow all the detestable things they do in worshiping
                  their gods, and you will sin against the Lord your God.

                  Stoning blasphemers

                  16 anyone who blasphemes the name of
                  the Lord is to be put to death. The entire assembly must stone
                  them. Whether foreigner or native-born, when they blaspheme the Name they are
                  to be put to death.

                  Stoning Fornicators

                  20 If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the
                  young woman’s virginity can be found, 21 she shall
                  be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her town
                  shall stone her to death. She has done an outrageous thing in Israel by
                  being promiscuous while still in her father’s house. You must purge the evil
                  from among you.

                  Killing Homosexuals

                  13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a
                  woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to
                  death; their blood shall be upon them.

                  The only problem is these are verses from the Bible.

                    All OLD Testament. All this has been rendered as simply historical by the New Testament. The opposite is true of Islam, where the violent Medinan verses superseded the more peaceful Meccan verses. Very weak argument you are trying to make.

                    • Allgone

                      There are a great many of us who do not view what you call “The Old Testament” as invalid. Lucky for us, the First Amendment is in charge of our Freedom of Religion. Not you.

                      • KingHasNoClothes

                        I did not say the OT was “invalid”. I said it is “historic” and the NT takes precedence in Christianity.

                        • Allgone

                          “rendered as simply historical” sounds a lot like rendered “invalid”. And you didn’t mention Christianity.
                          Since what you call the Old Testament wasn’t written for, or to Christians, I don’t see how their opinions on it being ‘simply historical’ matters. It certainly shouldn’t matter to Jews. Any more than a Christians opinion of the Koran should matter to a Muslim.

                        • KingHasNoClothes

                          I’m saying the same thing I’ve been saying all along. Learning Arabic has nothing to do with Islam. So all the cut and paste from “Islam for Idiots” is nothing but a smoke screen. A smoke screen, behind which a lot of bigoted people are trying to hide.

                          The casual dismissal of what you called “The Old Testament” is just bad manners. It contains The Torah, something precious to a great many people.

                        • KingHasNoClothes

                          Then you are out of context. The context of this particular thread is Iqbal’s attempt to draw equivalence between the Bible and the Koran in terms of violent passages.

      • Walter28

        Accusing people of “Islamophobia” is a cop-out. Islamophobia is not “racist”, firstly, because not all Middle-Easterners are Muslim. I have absolutely no fear whatsoever of agnostic Arabs or Iranians, for example. It’s not “Middle-Easterner-o-phobia” or “Brown People-o-phobia”. It has to do with a specific ideology and belief system. It’s tantamount to accusing people of “white supremacist-a-phobia”. I’m sure there are white supremacists out there who don’t want to murder people. Most are probably just internet trolls. We only sensationalize the actions of white supremacists who display overtly violent behavior. But that doesn’t mean it’s not rational to fear and/or be suspicious of them. We know full well that their doctrines have been inspiring people to violence. So, even if there are white supremacists out there who are measured and reasonable, it doesn’t mean we should tolerate white supremacy.

        Nor should we tolerate ultra-conservative Islamic doctrines either. Americanized, secular Muslims aren’t the problem, FYI. But there are plenty of valid reasons to condemn non-Americanized, non-secular, illiberal Muslims. Those who swing the “Islamophobia” club are simply afraid to deal with unpleasant realities that don’t jibe with their own doctrine — “be nice to everyone at all costs, even if their ideologies are dangerous and archaic and clash with our way of life”.

If we’re to have any chance of defending against the closest thing to the root of all evil, greed, we must unite and understand each other. I’ve seen many Zionists who oppose the Israeli govt, but I’d expect that since human nature doesn’t discriminate

        US congresswoman Betty McCollum has asked the State Department to investigate whether the unlawful killing Palestinians should deprive Israel of US military aid.

        In a letter to the State Department officials last week, the Minnesota Representative said that the deaths of Nadim Nowarah and Mohamed Odeh, in May of 2014, demonstrated the “brutal system of occupation that devalues and dehumanises Palestinian children.”

        The two Palestinian youths, aged 16 and 17, were killed when Israeli troops assaulted a peaceful protest outside the West Bank city of Ramallah during the Nakba Day, an annual commemoration of Palestinian forceful displacement by Zionist in 1948.

        “It is time for a strong and unequivocal statement of US commitment to the human rights of Palestinian children living under Israeli occupation,” McCollum wrote in the August 18 letter, which was released to the public on Monday, according to Days of Palestine.

        McCollum urged State Department officials to determine whether the killing of the teens was in violation of the Leahy Act.

        The Leahy Act is a US human rights law that prohibits the State and Defence departments from providing military assistance to foreign military units that violate human rights with impunity.

        The USS Liberty incident was an attack on a United States Navy technical research ship, USS Liberty, by Israeli Air Force jet fighter aircraft and Israeli Navy motor torpedo boats, on 8 June 1967. The combined air and sea attack killed 34 AMERICAN crew members (naval officers, seamen, two Marines, and one civilian), wounded 171 AMERICAN crew members, and severely damaged the ship. At the time, the ship was in international waters north of the Sinai Peninsula, about 25.5 nmi (29.3 mi; 47.2 km) northwest from the Egyptian city of Arish.

              • nuur12345

                Cherry-picking some lines and leaving out the most interesting?! I can help you with the rest!

                In a signed affidavit released at a Capitol Hill news conference, retired Capt. Ward Boston said Johnson and McNamara told those heading the Navy’s inquiry to “conclude that the attack was a case of ‘mistaken identity’ despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.”

                It was “one of the classic all-American cover-ups,” said retired Admiral Thomas Moorer, a former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman who spent a year investigating the attack as part of an independent panel he formed with other former military officials. The panel also included a former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, James Akins.
                Torpedo hole in USS Liberty“Why would our government put Israel’s interests ahead of our own?” Moorer asked from his wheelchair at the news conference. He was chief of naval operations at the time of the attack.

                Moorer, who has long held that the attack was a deliberate act, wants Congress to investigate. [Newsday]

                Fifteen years after the attack, an Israeli pilot approached Liberty survivors and then held extensive interviews with former Congressman Paul N. (Pete) McCloskey about his role. According to this senior Israeli lead pilot, he recognized the Liberty as American immediately, so informed his headquarters, and was told to ignore the American flag and continue his attack. He refused to do so and returned to base, where he was arrested.

                Later, a dual-citizen Israeli major told survivors that he was in an Israeli war room where he heard that pilot’s radio report. The attacking pilots and everyone in the Israeli war room knew that they were attacking an American ship, the major said. He recanted the statement only after he received threatening phone calls from Israel.

                The pilot’s protests also were heard by radio monitors in the U.S. Embassy in Lebanon. Then-U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Dwight Porter has confirmed this. Porter told his story to syndicated columnists Rowland Evans and Robert Novak and offered to submit to further questioning by authorities. Unfortunately, no one in the U.S. government has any interest in hearing these first-person accounts of Israeli treachery. [Washington Report]

                Israel attacked the USS Liberty using UNMARKED AIRCRAFT. This is the single fact which proves Israel knew exactly who they were attacking. Israel’s story is that they thought USS Liberty was an Egyptian ship and therefore a legitimate target of war. Were that true, there would be no reason to attack a supposedly Egyptian ship with unmarked aircraft. The only possible reason to use unmarked aircraft to attack the ship is that Israel knew it was an American ship and intended to sink it, then to blame the attack on Egypt.

                Moorer, who as top legal council to the official investigation is in a position to know, agrees that Israel intended to sink the USS Liberty and blame Egypt for it, thus dragging the United States into a war on Israel’s behalf. This seems to be a common trick of Israel. Starting with the Lavon affair, through the USS Liberty, to the fake radio transmitter that tricked Reagan into attacking Libya, to potentially 9-11 itself, Israel’s game is to frame Arabs and set them up as targets for the United States.

                The official US investigation is discredited. And with it, every claim of innocence for Israel that relied on the official investigation as a source.

                The real question facing the American people is why the US Government seems more concerned with protecting Israel after they are caught playing these dirty tricks, rather than doing something to convince Israel not to kill any more Americans.

A civilized country would ensure they wouldn’t suffer. Also, Palestine is independent and considered a country by an overwhelming amount of people and countries. You can debate Palestine’s history although they’ve had evidence of adhering to the Montevideo Convention, but do you really want to be considered delusional?

                Why do you need to drag your emotions into this? Logic should be sufficient. I can honestly say I’d give my life to defend Israelis or Palestinians against the backwards HAMAS or IDF. I’d like to hear why you think I lack facts. I understand many suffer from both sides for different reasons, but there’s no reason civilians should die. HAMAS has legit reasons for being retarded, but Israel does not

                • Roger

                  LOL Brownshirt, answering both replies here.
                  Nope, insinuations to do whatever to yourself are non-emotional .. it’s the nauseating moral equivalence between the terrorists who started the war and the nation forced to defend its citizens, that’s what I find utterly repugnant.

                  “Over-reaching if you were Jewish” ??
                  No, the Muslim Brotherhood has Jewish friends

                  • Justin Brown

                    Don’t try to act as if emotions didn’t just blind you, it’s painfully clear. I could have been a loved one for all you know, and you should treat people just like that. You had no idea what I supported and assumed some extreme things, which is a great indicator on how impulsive and biased you can be. If you can’t use critical thinking or have an open mind, then please don’t spread hate

                      Sorry pal, Islamic sympathies under the guise liberal compassion fall on deaf ears for anyone familiar to the subtleties of propaganda. Your deceptive postings were my only concerns… but there’s currently enough rebutal… carry on

                      • Justin Brown

                        You assume way too much. I feel I’m basically speaking a different language with you, since you’ve proven yourself to have no heart for what you don’t understand. I hope you’re an atheist, because you can’t be of faith unless you’re a hypocrite. If you can’t explain to me why I’m wrong, then please stop wasting your time. Why not speak like adults and spend our time more efficiently?

              • Justin Brown

                I would rather kill myself than persecute one who hasn’t persecuted me. My last gf was part Jewish (by race). For all you know I am Jewish. Shouldn’t that show you you’re overreacting? I know those who support HAMAS can be equally infuriating to me. Statistics seem to show neither side cares about killing innocents, and possibly targets them.

          Arabs had their state ! However …
          -The PA vehemently rejected most of Israel’s security demands
          -The PA refused Israel’s want to an end-of-conflict declaration at signing
          -The PA disagreed to formal recognition of the State of Israel as a Jewish state
          -The PA also demanded that Israel accept the sole responsibility for Arab refugees
          -More complicated was the Temple Mount, Israel offered shared or alternatively sovereignty based on the bond of each party, the PA rejected any compromise.

          Taba negotiations were considered promising, but the Arabs were fuhqing delusional !

        They are the real Evil Terrorist on the planet, they stole all that they claim to have.
        They are nothing but thief’s for over 60 years. They have and continue to murder millions of the native people of Jesus’ Birth place called Palestine.
        They steal over $100 Billion of American Hard earn Taxes each and every year for over 60 years.
        As for the same old same old Israel propaganda of Israel being an American ally is totally Bogus!

        • Roger

          NEVER ? REALLY ?
          1967, Israel defeated a radical Arab, pro-Soviet offensive, which threatened to bring about the collapse of pro-American Arab regimes
          1970, Israel preventing the fall of the pro-American Hashemite regimes, drove Syrian forces from Jordan, when we were in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.
          1973, Israel shared captured Soviet equipment, after defeating Soviet-trained and equipped Egyptian and Syrian forces.
          1981, Israel took out the Iraqi nuclear reactor, delaying Hussein’s quest, giving us the option of engaging.
          1982, Israel destroyed Soviet anti-aircraft batteries in Lebanon considered immune to our weapons.
          Shared the intel that was worth billions.
          (1974-90), Israel received $18 billion in U.S. military grants, during that same period Israel provided us with $50-80 billion in intel, research, development and captured weapons systems
          1991, Israel provided intel and air cover in the Gulf, had personnel planted in the desert to pick up downed Americans.
          2005, Israel provided America with the most extensive homeland defense against suicide bombers and car bombs. American soldiers train in IDF facilities
          2005, “The contribution made by Israeli intelligence to America is greater than that provided by all NATO
          countries combined” Senator Inouye
          2007, IAF destroyed a Syrian-North Korean nuclear plant, extending the US’s strategic arm. Provided vital info on Russian air defense systems, which were also employed by Iran.
          2009, Israel shared battle-tested experience in combating terrorism, which is the role model of
          anti-US Islamic terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan.
          … In contrast to our commitments to Korea, Japan, Germany and other parts of the world, not a single
          American serviceman needs to be stationed in Israel. With minimum contingencies, savings the United States billions of dollars a year.
          … VP of General Dynamics which produces the F16 fighter jets stated Israel was responsible for 600 improvements in the plane’s systems, modifications worth billions of dollars.

        The model is 90/10 per cent in kindergarten, 80/20 in following grades until a 50/50 (half the day in one language and half the day in the other language) is achieved. Goal: be bilingual.

        • Shayneedward

          I have no issue with learning a second language, as long as the curriculum is not particularly pro Quran. I missed in the article whether this school receives government funds or not, but if they do, they need to be as fastidious in regards to not promoting Islam as most schools are with Christianity. If that standard is adhered to, I have no issue with them learning Farsi.

      • Brenda

        Usually an immersion program is completely voluntary. There are usually students from two language groups (English/Spanish in our town, and apparently English/Arabic in their town). Our immersion programs in California require the parents to be closely involved.
        I think that I saw in the article that 30 per cent of the students would be white, 30 Hispanic, 30 black. So only 10 per cent would be Arabic-speaking students (perhaps some that need to improve on English). It is a language exchange.

        • Roger

          Direct quotes from the Arabic Immersion Training Guild…

          “Among Muslims, the language of the Qur’an and Sunnah is Arabic, and therefore it is the main source of communication about Islamic culture.”
          “The idea of learning one’s language and culture is that it could lead to a more compassionate population and a welcome manifestation of national diversity…”

          Brenda, haven’t we had enough Islamic “manifestation” as it is ?

          • Allgone

            Unless the “Arabic Immersion Training Guild” is in charge of the public schools in Texas, this is just more irrelevant BS.

          • Brenda

            Any violent manifestation is committed by a minority of Muslims.
            The article was saying that the protesters should not have targeted the children and their parents as they were walking into the school.
            Is a protest valid? Yes, it is freedom of speech. Would I have chosen that time and place? No.
            As a language teacher and language learner, I see the Arabic Immersion as a language learning venture and a way of fostering communication. I know that some things get out of hand later on, but the intentions of creating more understanding is not a bad idea.
            I am sure that indoctrinating is not one of the goals of the program.

        • Roger

          Brenda, in reply you wrote “I am sure that indoctrinating is not one of the goals of the program”
          … but direct and possibly contrary quotes from their training guild, agreement that ‘minority’ violent manifestation has occurred, along with historical reference to Islamic assimilation… there’s obvious entitlement to question your certainty… right ?

          • Brenda

            Anything can be questioned. Being skeptical is valid.
            I continue to believe that language learning is the main goal there.
            Is there danger of a student becoming curious one day about the beliefs of his follow students who are Muslim? Yes. But that could happen even without the language program.

            • Roger

              good reply Brenda,
              but “language learning” as the main goal ?
              there are no protests at language only classes.

              answers will be interesting when these children grow up, comprehend the event,
              and ask their parents .. “why did our neighbors protest our first day school ?”

              • Brenda

                I would tell them the truth.

                Mommy, why are those people there with those signs?
                Because not all parents agree that we should teach Arabic.
                Why?
                Because they think that learning Arabic means teaching Islam.
                Is that true, Mommy?
                No, dear, the school is teaching language not religion?
                What is Islam, Mommy?
                It is a religion. Just like we are Christians, other people in the world believe something else.
                Do they believe in God, Mommy?
                Yes, they believe in God, but they call God, Allah.
                Do they believe in Jesus?
                Yes, they believe in Jesus, but he is only an important prophet to them, not God?
                Is that wrong, Mommy?
                Well, for us that is not right. But to them it is right.
                So, should I hate them, Mommy.
                No, you should love them because Jesus taught you to love them.

                • Brenda

                  So…. can you imagine such a conversation, Roger?

                  • YoDude

                    Not Roger, but yes I can imagine such a conversation.
                    Except I know the truth about the underlying intent of this school. Its purpose is to teach Arabic so that the student can “study” the Qur’an in the original language. You seem reasonably informed. You must know that Wahabis believe this is the only true way to educate. Further, at this moment you may not be able to find much in the written curricula that would seem to support the idea that teaching Islam is the real intent, but you need to understand that the unwritten curricula, the one that the Arabic-speaking teachers will have, is to support instruction in Islam. There is no other purpose for this. If you are a truly globally-minded person, one aware of what is happening in our world, you would see a move toward an educational system that at its core supports the believe that we are to tolerate all others and their beliefs. There seems to be an exception for the dominant system of Christianity, since most (if not all) of those developing the curricula come from societies where Christianity is dominant, and they are of the mindset that this dominance needs to be brought to its knees, so Christianity isn’t much tolerated. But a socio-political death cult is. It is promoted as “peaceful,” even though its basic tenets teach death and subjugation. You’ll probably deny this, but therein is the crux. You are part of the group seeking to subjugate the dominant belief system. This school is nothing more than a hidden agenda, supported blindly by a modernly progressive attempt to appear open-minded, flexible, caring, risk-taking, balanced, knowledgeable, communicative, thinking, reflective, and inquiring. Take that list and google it. Find out where it comes from and seek to identify the underlying progressive cluster-F. that it comes from. It is all part of a world tour of blind idiots exploring caves underground while the tsunami advances from the East.

                    • Brenda

                      Dude,
                      I would have to meet the people who planned this program to know if they have some kind of hidden agenda.
                      Sorry to take so long to get back on here to answer.

                      • Brenda

                        Thanks for reading the conversation (mommy/child).
                        I can imagine that a parent who is enrolling the child in the dual immersion program knows all the particulars about it.

                  • Roger

                    Brenda, sadly I can,
                    Can you imagine this conversation .. “American reluctance to welcome historic atrocities related to our faith, fundamentalist oppression of our people and our historic cultural assimilation ? it’s not our language honey, but the non-appearance of integration.”

                    .. or something to that effect :-

              • Brenda

                I wish I knew how to answer those emails directly and not have to look back here to find the thread of the conversation. Educate me on that point if there is a way to answer directly from the email and reach you or at least be able to come back to the right place when I click on “reply to this person” in the email message.
                My answer was going to be to the Palestinian question that was being discussed. It is long and full of historical facts. I wish I had more time to discuss (and learn from) you.
                I know that there have been big mistakes on both side.
                I wish I could be on here all day, but I will get behind on other responsibilities here at home. Until next time. Let’s agree to disagree and hopefully somewhere down the line, we can merge into some middle ground. (don’t laugh)

                • Roger

                  May have hit dif reply button, I don’t know, but “agree to disagree” on that particular issue (Arab/Israeli conflict) is not possible. I’m four generations United States Military service and find the Arab War on Israel (specifically on the Jewish people) utterly disgusting.

                  but I believe we found middlish-ground elsewhere… take care

              • Shayneedward

                Roger, people knee-jerk at the oddest things at times. This may be an ignorant group of people protesting a language class.

                • Roger

                  Shayne, if not for direct quotes (which I’ve posted twice) from the Arabic Immersion Training Guild, I would agree to that possibility. Tho the article also stated this group ‘was not’ opposed to language classes.

      • Julie Kroflich

        Are the students attending the Arabic immersion program voluntarily? Meaning, did their parents give permission, or was this forced/required??

        • Allgone

          It’s a Magnet program. People apply. There were many more applicants than there were places available.

          • Julie Kroflich

            [I asked because the only immersion programs offered in my area, are offered by private schools.] If the parents signed their children up for this educational program, I don’t see where other people get to protest their decision.

            • Allgone

              We don’t have “language immersion” either. I wish we did.
              These people are protesting because they are scared little rabbits who don’t know the difference between a language, a religion, and terrorists.

      • Roger

        Once again.. “Arabic Immersion Training Guild” promotes language “and” culture,

        There are no misconceptions to the agenda of radical/ political/ fundamentalist Islam,
        “cross-cultural perspective” in this setting is similar to fondling an Imam or socialism.

        • Allgone

          Obviously you are clueless. Or perhaps just stupid. Maybe stupid with some mean-spiritedness thrown in for good measure.

        • Scot Morgan

          people make America great, discrimination is what has made America a laughing stock. first it was the Native Americans, we destroyed them in the name of progress and civilization. then it was the dark skinned people, we enslaved and beat them. then it was gays, we abuse and shame the, now its the muslims.

          when will you people learn that we are all homosapiens, we all bleed red, we all are born and die the same.

          America was built on the corpses of Native Americans so that all humans can have a place to go where they can achieve the “American Dream”. is that dream just for christians?

          christianity, the religion of peace, tolerance and love. the religion that persecutes anyone who doesn’t believe in their savior, who wants to destroy all other religions that dont agree with them. it sounds to me like christians are the same as ISIS.

          and if you look up christian terrosrists in google, you will find that 90% of all the extremist murdering christians are based in America and travel the world training other cultures in how to segregate and possibly kill non chrisitans, you will find that religious extremists everywhere of every religion are the same. hypocritical muderers who want nothing but to destroy anyone who opposes their beliefs.

          sounds just like the KKK, or ISIS to me. #ReligionIsTheRootOfAllEvil

          • Grn Eyes

            I do not know any Christians doing the kind of things that the Islamist’s are doing. Islam is not a religion, it is a way of life and it is referred to as ‘The Nation of Islam’ meaning there are no boundaries. Yes, there are, even today, some pretty bad representatives of Christianity, but the ones who make the headlines are such a tiny fraction of those who are mislead or have been mislead. Whereas, even peaceful Muslims believe it is OK to have Sharia law be the law of the land and all that goes with that, including killing infidels, but you have to learn Arabic and actually watch the Arabic stations, papers, e-line info to understand their thinking process (if that’s really possible) because what they say in English very much differs from what they say in Arabic to their own. I have studied both the Quran and the Bible. Still working on the Hadith and surra. probably didn’t spell those right. Christianity has been though a reformation, unlike Islam. Islam’s tenets are clear. If people do not convert to Islam, once it is the majority, then you will have to pay a tax to live and ‘be protected’ by the Islamist’s. Or you can just be killed. In fact, even if you pay the gizzia tax, they can still kill you if they feel it’s the right thing to do. We are far from that as of yet. There is still a lot of procreating to do on the part of the Muslims and the slow brainwashing of people naive to their goal of world domination.

            • Khaled Naseralla

              Your article my friend is full of wrongs, it could be just being misinformed or maybe just hatred. Nothing of what you claimed about Islam in your article is correct. Do you know what Sharia Law is?Christians have been living in the region before and after Islam, they weren’t killed for their faith. This gizzia you mentioned that a non-Muslim have to pay for protection, Muslims pay taxes as well that is called Zaka which is paid by those who own enough to the needy, so this is not a payment required by a non-Muslims only. The sharia Law my friend obliges the government to provide for citizens that are poor whether being Muslims or not. That’s part of Sharia Law. Please get correct information from proper sources before you make statements about a religion that has followers of a quarter of earth population.

            As a non-christian immigrant growing up in a muslim country, I feel safe among average american evangelical christians. They aren’t perfect, but they are no danger to me. I feel less safe among hypocrite liberals and muslim kissers like you. You don’t know a bit what it means to live as non-muslim in muslim countries. Get real. KKK is history; ISIS is at your door step.

            • Scot Morgan

              Then your experience as an American has been very limited. Go spend time in Mississippi, or Kentucky, South Carolina, any of the ‘bible’ belt, travel with a dark skinned friend, see the power of American terrorists and white trash, see how safe you are.

              every single person has the potential to be dangerous, there is no culture, race or religion that makes one group more dangerous than the other, and to continue to believe this is to put yourself in danger through ignorance.

              React to every person you meet with the expectation that they could be a good person or a bad person, and learn to judge them from their actions and you will be smarter and safer for it.

              Teach your children the same and they will be stronger better people for it.

              teach them to hate based on outdated and ignorant stereotypes and fear, and they will be ignorant scared adults who make decisions based on fear and ignorance instead of experience and intelligence.

              do your research, the KKK is not history, and they have more guns than you think, hidden, waiting for the right moment. and there are plenty of other christian terror groups that exist today. if you actually are interested in learning, look up the following groups, and learn why you cant judge an entire religion based on its extremists, unless you want to judge them all equally based on their extremists.

                Then you must be either a Muslim or having your mind completely twisted. I fled from a muslim country because islam is a real threat to humanity. And I’m not a religious person. All the extremist groups that you mentioned, even if they really exist, are nothing compared to Islamic extremists or Islam itself for that matter. Muslims will do anything to defeat and conquer anybody standing in their way. But you probably already know that…

              • j_sean80

                Then you must be a muslim or having your mind completely twisted. No religion is perfect because humans are not perfect. But Islam is the worst of all. Islam provides a perfect example of how religion can go wrong. Even if the extremist groups you mentioned do exist (and I’m not denying what you said), they are almost nothing and too minuscule compared to Islam. True muslims will kill and do anything to anybody who stands in their way… Don’t drag other religions into a discussion of Islam. As for now, Islam IS the threat to humanity and all civilized people, including some more educated muslims, need to address the global plague of Islam.

                • Scot Morgan

                  I fear your blind hatred of a group of people more than i fear them. No single entity on the planet is evil incarnate, including islam. And to blanket hate any group like that is simple bigotry.

                  Their faith is actually very similar to christianity in many ways. yes, they have extremists, and their extremists are more brutal than christians (though there are American christian priests actively pursuing gay people in africa and using christianity as a reason for murder), but that doesnt mean that true muslims are the problem, anymore than it means the average christian is to blame for the extremists.

                  I doubt anything i say can change your mind, and its not my job to do so. I hope you have a safe life, away from extremists, and live a happy person.

                  • j_sean80

                    I said I was a migrant from a muslim country and I also said I was not a religious person. If you’ve ever lived in a muslim country, you will understand why I said what I said about Islam. Extremism or violence is an exception in religion like christianity or buddhism etc., but violence is more like a norm in islam. You used the word “bigotry” only to deflect people from looking into the real teaching of Islam. We can scrutinize and criticize other religions however we want, why can’t we do the same thing to islam? Why we keep pandering to muslims? Read and look at religions more objectively please. Show me that you’re not a bigot.

      • Brenda

        I am a person who loves to learn other languages (Spanish fluently, French coming along, and Arabic is next) I don’t see anything wrong with teaching a second language in an immersion class or school. As a teacher of English to immigrants, I have had several Arabic-speaking students, all very peaceful and very kind. I would like to learn their language. We have dual-immersion Spanish/English in our town here in California. I have never heard anyone complain about it (except a Spanish-speaking mother who thought it was another way for the English-speaking to get an advantage over the Mexican population.) We have children learning sign language, too, in order to understand the language of their classmates who are deaf. Can’t we view this as another way of fostering good communication?

      • Mar Shaw

        Its funny that these idiots don’t realize that Arabic has nothing to do with Islam. One is a language- one is a religion. Its like saying if you speak French, you must be Protestant.
        I believe kids should learn as many languages as they can- but then again, I value education.

        • Allgone

        • David Partington

          Good reply. there are many thousands of Christian Arabs who naturally speak Arabic, as well as many Arab athiests. Arabic though is in the minds of Muslims is intimately connected with their religion because God (or rather Gabrial) delivered the Qur’an to Muhammad in the Arabic language. I think these “immersion” programs are a load of crap, designed to move people away from the language, and therefore the culture, of this country.

          • Allgone

            You do realize there are other countries in the world with which Americans interact on a daily basis, right? Language is also important outside international affairs. Learning Latin is valuable if one plans to be a Doctor for instance. Hebrew, Latin, Aramaic, Arabic are all languages important to anyone who studies the classics, arts and literature, Mathematics, and Astronomy… all sorts of things where knowledge of languages other than English are important.

            But if that’s just too artsy for you, look at it his way. If Arabic speakers are your enemies, Learn Arabic. Then you can eavesdrop on them

            • David Partington

              Thank you, all gone. As the holder of the Ph.D. in Arabic studies (Princeton, 1961), and as a Middle-Eastern librarian successively at Princeton, Michigan, and Harvard, I think I recognize the importance of language study. My professional career was involved with acquiring, cataloging, and making accessible many hundred of thousand texts in various Islamic languages. And you? –bibliodhp

                Will you take pity on the poor dumb schmuck who just wrote the tuition checks? Please explain to me Dr. Partington, how it is that learning languages, as you have, will move other people away from the language and culture of America. Is that the effect such knowledge had on you? If not, I don’t understand why you would deny others the opportunity to learn.

                My lack of schooling made me determined that my children would not be denied the best education possible. It seems odd that someone so blessed would deny the same to others.

        Funny how some of these Christians stand side by side with the jews holding their flag spewing hate, especially when Jews don’t even believe in Jesus and consider him a false prophet and imposter.

                If this school’s focus was on integration to the American way of life and values, American compassion would flood these comments. Just skepticism differs from bigotry, you’re a bit jiggy ‘cuz of that two-steppin’ (or fondling) your Imam crack … huh ?

                • Allgone

                  This schools focus is on the same things that other schools in this district are focused on. The difference is this school teaches math and science in Arabic. This is for English speaking kids from Texas. Kids with parents who think language skills are a good thing.

          Funny, how Islamists attempt to separate people of God, and the belief in His message that a people of faith were chosen or tasked to carry…

          The Islamist and hate preacher are actually “those who claim to be Jews, but are not”, those who claim God but blaspheme Judaism… and they most certainly dwell in the “Assembly of Satan”

        • Only Jews and Christians are the people of the book (bible) The founders of christianity were jews. Jesus is Jewish. So we have a deep bond with the Jewish people. Christians are blessed because we bless the Jews. You show disrespect when you do not accept what Jesus said. He said he is God. He was crucified and rose from the dead. He said ” I am the way the truth and the life….”John 14:6

          • _OUTLAW_

            Amen Brother! Jesus is the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father but by him.” I am so thankful I had a Christian mother. I have known Jesus since I was a little girl. I have had and seen many miracles in my life. I was recently healed after suffering with an illness for 25 years. Once I was dying, and the Lord’s prayer popped up in front of my eyes while I was out, I believe Jesus was making sure I was ready to meet him, I suddenly woke up, saying “I’m ok”, I had been out for about ten minutes. So no matter how people rage against Jesus, I know he lives and lives within my heart. I don’t see how anyone gets by in this day and age without having Jesus. Jesus is coming soon, so if anyone doesn’t know Jesus, ask him into your heart today.

And if it is true and it has been proved that this detestable thing has been done among you, 15 you must certainly put to the sword all who live in that town. You must destroy it completely, both its people and its livestock. 16 You are to gather all the plunder of the town into the middle of the public square and completely burn the town and all its plunder as a whole burnt offering to the Lord your God. That town is to remain a ruin forever, never to be rebuilt, 17 and none of the condemned things] are to be found in your hands. Then the Lord will turn from his fierce anger, will show you mercy, and will have compassion on you. He will increase your numbers, as he promised on oath to your ancestors— 18 because you obey the Lord your God by keeping all his commands that I am giving you today and doing what is right in his eyes.” – Deuteronomy 13:13-19

            Muslims are unfortunately a victim of their own tyrannical oppressors…Haffaz Al-Assad and Jr., Sadam Hussain, Muammar Gaddafi, and the list goes on. Wars waged on Gaza were defense initiatives.

                    Islam is the only religious (although I believe it is a Satanic cult) that will not assimilate into our culture. They do not desire to, but wish to change our Country into one of their God forsaken Countries. No freedoms, no happiness, no life, just hate, murder and innocent blood shed. Every other person from any other religion comes here and wants to assimilate, but not Islamic Muslims, they are here practicing “taquiyya” =lying to the infidels to gain their trust and friendship in order to take over their Country. Obama practices it everyday. That stupid Coexist bumper sticker is absurd, all of those religions coexist except one, and we know which one that is, the one slaughtering innocent men, women, children and using babies as bombs, and people are still so blind they can’t see what is going on.

                      Only Shias use the term taqiya, but Muslims can deny their faith or do other blasphemous things when under the threat of significant persecution. You have no proof otherwise but hearsay. Also, how can Obama be a Muslim if he’s not being persecuted and drinks alcohol, eats regular meat, a very long etc. His administration will be over next year.

Parents do not allow this to be happening in your schools contact the Center for Law and Justice in Virginia Beach va., the Alliance Defense fund, or Thomas more law they will represent you for free to stop this Islamic teaching. Since you can’t mention Jesus or the God of the Bible in schools without the ACLU, Freedom from religion foundation, atheists or Satanist suing. We are going to have to start doing the same thing. Who in the world wants their children indoctrinated into this heinous ideology? Have people completely lost their minds?

          • tk-atty

            Webster Dictionary definition of “Immersion” The act of putting someone or something IN COMPLETE INVOLVEMENT IN SOME “ACTIVITY” OR “INTEREST.” I have no desire for my children or grandchildren to be “COMPLETELY INVOLVED ” in learning anything about ISLAM. I have nothing against Muslim people who are not Islamic, but for the majority who are, they have one goal and that is world domination and forced following of Islam, and if you are not a Muslim you are an infidel, so you deserve to die/lose your head. Please read articles from Muslims who have come out of Islam, they will tell you the truth about Islam and about their desires. Haven’t heard a peep from any of them about all these terrorist attacks, or our three patriots taking out the jihadist in France. Why is that?

            • Brenda

              Okay. Will they mention that many Muslims speak the Arabic language. Yes, they probably will some day. It’s a fact. It is probably in their other school books, too.

            • Dan []

              Plenty of Muslims, i.e. followers of Islam have and continue to denounce religious extremism and violence; after all, they’re the ones suffering the most at the hands of the terrorists. By ‘immersion’, it appears to mean immersion in the Arabic language, as half the classes will be taught IN that language, as opposed to just having one foreign language class like they do in most schools. I would be surprised if Arabic culture itself, including religion was not discussed at some point, just as it would be in any other foreign language class. If you take French, you can expect to learn something about French culture in addition to the language. But it’s not a religious school or a brainwashing center; just a regular school with an emphasis on a certain foreign language. It says the same school district already has a Mandarin immersion school, but I don’t think they’re churning out Communists, just kids who can speak Chinese.

        • Allgone

          Maybe the administrators are hoping you’ll take this time to actually read the article.
          If you had read it you’d know that this school is teaching a language. Just like French, German, and Spanish are languages. Learning Spanish or Latin does not make you Catholic. German does not mean you’re Lutheran. See how that works? Language. Not religion. Two different things. Two. If you try, I know you can count to at least two.

          • tk-atty

            See the definition of immersion below, and do a little research of Islam by Muslims who lived it and have left it, they will tell you the truth about Islam, although our media and Government will not.

                Well as an Attorney for almost 30 years I think I do know what I am talking about. I have read our Constitution, and I have read the Koran, so you can say all you want that this isn’t indoctrination, but I know you are wrong it is the beginning. Is it ok that in Florida that they had elementary children making Islamic prayer rugs, or that Oklahoma had the kids out on the school lawn bowed down while an Iman said the Islamic prayer of faith, which is “there is no god but allah’, or that in North Carolina they were teaching a course in which the wanted the students to “imagine you are Muhammad, wouldn’t you like to be like him,” What is that? Can’t mention Jesus or the God of the Bible, when this Nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and founded by Puritans? If you can’t talk about Jesus, you can’t be teaching Islam, period. If they want to put all of the religions out there and HONESTY compare them, fine, I have no doubt which faith is real, and will win the hearts of the children, that is Christianity. That is why it is not taught, they hate Christianity because deep down they know it is the truth, so they would rather indoctrinate our children with a heinous death cult ideology. NO THANKS!

        Muslims in Irving, Texas are pushing for Sharia Law. This is NOT being American, and it’s certainly not respecting the laws of The United States. This is a forced indoctrination of a misguided religion. It’s no coincidence that this is happening in the bible belt. Separate church and state means just that. I see the writing on the wall. The Muslims will push for Sharia Law in specific parts of The U.S., then connect the dots to overtake us completely. WE DON’T WANT TO BE MUSLIM, WE DON’T WANT SHARIA LAW!!!

          You are right. I left an informational statement 40 minutes ago, and it has still not been approved. I said nothing but I don’t want our children being indoctrinated into a heinous, murderous ideology, and that they won’t even allow Jesus or the God of the Bible to be mentioned in our schools, but the want to teach Islam? An ideology that is causing murder and chaos all over the world and teaching their children to behead their teddy bears. Practicing for when they are older and want to cut off the “infidels” heads? We will see if they post it. Free speech is disappearing on the internet.

            There’s extremists of all faiths, and their situation is exacerbated by socio-economic factors. CIA and Europol statistics seem to show the Muslim threat isn’t anywhere as great as your bias would like you to believe. Your delusional ideas can spread and cause a chain reaction of hate. If you believe in God, I beg you to try to compare your reasoning with the prophets. I see way too many religious hypocrites of all faith. Don’t believe any human interpretation until you’ve formed your own, and even then keep an open mind

        • Dan []

          In situations where parts of Sharia Law have been taken into account by a court, it has and only can be used as part of a legal agreement between two parties, i.e. a private contract. No religious code can supersede Actual state and Federal laws, so you can put your mind at ease.

        Arabic is not exclusively Islamic, but it’s a staple of Islamic culture. For minds too young to comprehend it’s history of assimilation, this seems like a subtle form of assimilation in itself.

          I appreciate all cultures and history and visit as many places I can to learn about the world. The primary faith of the US may be Christian but we were founded on religious freedom.

          You need to wake up. If Christianity and Judiasm can’t be taught in our schools then Islam, a hateful and murderous ideology cannot and should not be taught. Islam is an ideology bent on worldwide domination as you see in the news everyday. I don’t want my children or grandchildren being indoctrinated into this Satanic ideology where the murder and slaughter of anyone who they disagree with is acceptable. Can’t mention Jesus or the God of the Bible, but the want to teach Islam? Where is the ACLU now? They sue if a school has the Ten Commandments, a picture of Jesus or mention the word Christmas. This is not the first incident of Islamic indoctrination in schools but I don’t hear the Freedom from religion group, the aclu, atheists or Satanists objecting to Islam, You know why? Because it is not Christianity, it’s not Jesus which they know is the truth, and Islam is not, but why would anyone want your children or grandchildren indoctrinated into this heinous and murderous ideology? In Florida, last year they had elementary students making Islamic prayer rungs, in Oklahoma they had them out on the school lawn bowed down while an Iman said an Islamic prayer, in North Carolina they had a less on “how great Muhammad was and wouldn’t you like to be like him, or be with him?” What the f*ck? Keep Islam out of our schools and out of our Country. I have nothing against Muslims who are not Islamic, but I have a HUGE problem with Islam. There are Muslim Christians right now waiting to get into our Country, and can’t while the Obama administration is bringing every Muslim jihadist they can. Now why do you think that is? Another way Obama can destroy America as fast as he possibly can.

        “Though Houston’s Arabic-speaking population hovers around 23,000, not all Arabic-speaking individuals are Muslims. In fact, only 20 percent of Muslims worldwide speak the language.”

        Not surprising, since the two countries with the largest Muslim populations are Indonesia and India, in that order, and neither one uses Arabic as the lingua franca. However, I think this particular statistic is at least partially irrelevant. Worse yet, the way it is used is could imply that the majority of Arabic speakers are not Muslim. A much more useful line would have been “Though Huston’s Arabic-speaking population hovers around 23,000, not all Arabic-speaking individuals are Muslims. Approximately X number of people who use Arabic as a first language are Muslim while, globally, only 20 percent of Muslims speak Arabic as a first language.”

            There is no god except Allah and Mosses is a Prophet gifted with book of knowledge ( Kali-mullah ) from Allah .

            There is no god except Allah and Jesus (son of Mary) is a Messiahs of Allah.

              You are clearly part of the Islamic problem. Muslim’s who come here who are Islamic believe that allah is the only god, and you do not assimilate into the American culture like ALL other people of faith who come here. That is the problem, admit the truth you want our Nation to become your Nation. A Country without a Constitution, or freedoms and especially religious freedom. No other religion is allowed to be taught in Muslim countries and if anyone converts to another religion they are murdered. I don’t want and will not allow my children and grandchildren to be fed your horrible, murderous ideology. I will teach my grandchildren what a heinous ideology is, and that it is a cult of death. Jesus is the one true God, he is the only way, he is not a follower of Muhammad. You have been deceived, your hate for Jewish people is clear. As a Christian I love the Jewish people, Jesus Is Jewish and he is my Lord! I hope that you find Jesus because he is “the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father but by him” he loves us all and died for all our sins, we are saved through our faith in Christ. Jesus doesn’t force conversion on anyone, so come to Jesus, many Muslims are getting saved and leaving the cult called Islam. Tired of the hate and bloodshed, ask Jesus into your heart and know true peace, happiness and salvation, not through works or murdering people, but through faith alone.

          especially when Jews don’t believe in Jesus and consider him a false prophet and imposter. While on the other hand muslims respect and hold jesus to be one of the most holy prophets sent from god to teach the truth.

        It is bad enough tax payers have to have kids taught in Spanish, not we have to have kids taught in the language of terrorist.

        • Allgone

          Kids are being taught a language. I took Spanish in school 50 years ago. My youngest took four years of Latin. My mother took French in the ’40’s. You’re fighting the wrong battle.

        • Brian George

          I am Muslim and speak English as my primary language (Arabic for Salat-prayer). I am also a 20 year military retiree and working for the DoD still. Don’t paint every Muslim with that wide brush. Its a huge faith with the nuts and fanatics getting the press.

      • Jack O’Scratch

        These flag waving bigots should be ashamed of their despicable behavior.

        • Using that “logic”, it was bigoted of Jews to oppose Nazism.

          • Allgone

            That is a Completely false equivalency. It’s not even a good analogy.

            • What you are saying is far from the truth. Islam calls for the subjugation or death of non-Muslims. It also shares a profound hatred of Jews along with Nazism.

              • Allgone

                The TRUTH is that this particular school is teaching a LANGUAGE. Not a religion. Not a faith. Not a philosophy. So the analogy is bogus.

                • bjuhlmer

                  Do you know what the school is teaching? If it is in a foreign language that few of us understand, the teachers can present anything they wish.

                  • Allgone

                    That’s like saying my kid is Catholic because she took 4 years of Latin.
                    They’re teaching Math and Science in Arabic to English speaking kids. Get a grip.

                    • Attempting to normalize them to Arabic. America needs to ban Islam, and all Muslim immigration.

                      • Brian George

                        That would be against the Constitution. What contry do you really want to live in? Sounds like a theocracy.

                        • Not at all. Islam can be stripped of its religion status, and declared the hostile ideology it is. For the record I am not religious.

                      • Allgone

                        “Normalize” whom? Kindergarteners whose parents think it’s a good idea in an “energy producing” state like Texas, for their kids to learn the language of other localities in the same field? Those people?
                        First of all, it’s likely few if any of these kids are Muslim. Second: Where do you think Muslims come from? Islam is not a country. There are Americans who also happen to be Muslim all over the place. Third: We have a Constitution and a Bill of Rights.

                        • I never said Islam is a country, and Muslims are American on paper only. Finally, I have freedom of speech, and i will continue to use it to turn others against Islam.

                        • Allgone

                          Clueless one. There’s more to the first Amendment than your freedom of speech. There is ALSO Freedom of Religion. That includes the freedom of Muslims to practice their religion, which is called Islam. You CAN’T ban Islam. Anymore than you can ban Judaism or Southern Baptists. Muslims aren’t necessarily immigrants. They’re just as likely to have been born here as anyone practicing any other religion.

                          None of which has anything to do with this article. Which is about kids in Texas learning a language.
                          Why not read the entire Constitution?

                        • Let me bring you up to speed. Islam is much more than a religion. It is a complete way of life that includes a military component. It can be stripped of it religion status and declared the hostile ideology it is. Fact is that laws are already be written against it.

                • Not at all, because most people who speak Arabic are Muslims.

                  • Allgone

                    We’ve moved from bogus analogies to complete non sequiters.

                    What. Is. Your. Point?

                    • One again, the analogy was dead on. Christianity is not on a worldwide jihad. Islam is. Got it now?

                      • Allgone

                        All you’ve established so far is that you don’t know what you’re talking about on several subjects.
                        Islam, which is not being taught in this school, is immaterial to the teaching of Arabic, which is being taught.
                        Christianity, which is also not being taught in this school, has nothing to do with this story or your previous analogy.
                        Judaism, which is not being taught in this school, is also irrelevant to this story.

                        Non sequiters. Bogus Analogies. Random, disjointed misrepresentations.

                        • Ummm…the Koran was written Arabic “genius”,

                          Bless your heart. The Christian Bible has been translated into Arabic as well. Since the Koran isn’t being used as a textbook in Texas, that is just another completely immaterial and random fact you’ve posted.

                        • The Koran was written in Arabic, not translated into it, Try and keep up. Enough time wasted. Have a good day.

                          Immaterial. Irrelevant. Bogus. Inapplicable. And in your case, Inconsequential.

                        • Fact is that the Koran was originally written in Arabic. Another fact is that I my voice is growing by the day, and I will continue to turn others against Islam. There is nothing you can do about it. Because you are #irrelevant

                        • Allgone

                          Many books have been written in Arabic. It is an ancient language. I can post, type, write, and talk just as loudly as you can. I’m going to be doing all that in defense of the Constitution of the United States. It wont be the first time small, fearful men have tried to destroy the foundation of our country, and it won’t be the last. And just like all the other small people with big fears, you will lose. Because we are better than you are. We are Americans and we will win.

                          I’m defending the Constitution. The same way generations of people have defended it against cowards hiding behind fear mongering rhetoric. Fearful people shouting all about freedom, so long as it is just for themselves.
                          Sooner or later you’ll have to realize the Constitution wasn’t written just for people like you. It was written for all Americans.

                        • If not stopped Islam will destroy the US Constitution. As for Muslims, they are not more American then the Friends of New Germany were. Citizenship does not always equate to loyalty. Especially with Muslims

                          Americans have Constitutional Rights whether we agree with them or not.

                        • Obviously you are not smart enough to see how Muslims use the freedoms of the West against the West, in order to change the West to suit Islam. That is why there are Islamic ghettos forming across it. Try and keep up;

                        • Allgone

                          Support of other religions and atheists doesn’t absolve you of your blind spot regarding Muslims. The Constitution guarantees the rights of Americans. There are no asterisks. It doesn’t say All Americans “Except Muslims”. It doesn’t say “all Americans as defined by Christopher Logan”.

                          Unless or until you’re appointed to the Supreme Court you don’t have the authority to define who is deserving of “the Blessings of Liberty”. That is way above your pay grade.

                        • I already told you I am rallying members of other religions and Atheists against Islam. So I do not think the Constitution is just about me. Try and keep up.

                        • Allgone

                          I am keeping up. That’s why I know you’ll lose. I’m on the side of the Constitution. More people will support the Constitution than will support the agenda of someone who would toss them under the nearest bus in a heartbeat.

                          Most of us, who are not like you, recognize protecting the Constitutional rights for all of us does EXACTLY that. Protects the rights of all of us.

                        • In other words you will sit and do nothing as Muslims continue to change America to suit Islam. Which only proves my point about you. A pure coward.

                          ” My voice will always outweigh yours”. Arrogant much? I’ve already won. Every time you go on another Anti-American rant I win again. Because every time you run off at the mouth it becomes easier for people to see what you would do to them if you decide that They are the ones you’re afraid of. It becomes easier to point out how the Constitution protects all of us, including you by the way, against those who would deny any of us our freedoms.

                          It’s not hard for me, and the majority of Americans who agree with me, to beat you. You do most of the work for us.
                          Thanks

                        • 1. Islam is what is anti-American. 2. Islam is what calls for violence, not me. 3. Muslims have turned the Constitution into a tool of Islam. 4. Islam is out to deny your freedoms. 5. The link I posted proves MOST of the country is against Islam. Nice try.

                          Islam is a religion. And as such it enjoys the same protections as any other religion practiced by Americans. I don’t have to “try”. Because I have facts, and the Constitution on my side. I’ve already won.

                        • That is pretty funny. Because just one of my pages got over 10M views this week alone. Then there is you, Hiding behind a fake name, lol Enjoy watching the country continue to turn on Islam. Knowing there is not a damn thing you can to about it.

                          The ‘views’ that count are the ones that ratified the Bill of Rights in 1791. If you can get your groupies to float another amendment to the Constitution and muster the support needed for it to be ratified, then you’ll have proven your point. Until then it’s just more hot air. No different than any other talking head bragging about ratings.

                          I’m not hiding any more than anyone else who uses a ‘handle’. I’m also not trolling for ‘views’ on a reactionary FB page.

                        • Fear-monger? Is that the best you can come up with? I go on facts on Islam. Meanwhile cowards like you bury their head in the sand, Not only are you a traitor to America, you are a traitor and failure to your own family. I have wasted enough time on you..

                        • I said I would defeat you if we debated Islam. Seriously, try and pay attention. Apparently you need a blueprint for everything in life. lol

                          For the last time. Arabic has plenty to do with Islam. America needs a divorce from the Islamic world. not an attempt to bring its culture here. That is why people are protesting.

                        • Allgone

                          Islam is not up for debate. It is a religion and as such protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution. I don’t have any say over the religious beliefs of other Americans and neither do you.
                          Islam is not the subject under discussion. The article is about children learning a language. Arabic. The Koran being written in Arabic has no bearing on the validity of the language. That’s so stupid and short-sighted it defies belief.

                          American Muslims have the same rights as the followers of any other religion.

                          The Un-American protesters are doing so because they are both afraid and uninformed. There seems to be a lot of that going around.

                        • You do not decide what is up for debate. Fact is that the country is clearly turning on Islam, and laws are already being written against it. Islam is what is unAmerican, and within the law it will be defeated here.

                        • Allgone

                          I decide what I believe. And I believe I’ll support the Constitution of the United States. I believe more people will choose to do that than the obscenity you propose. I believe the Supreme Court will believe it as well.
                          I guess we’ll have to wait and see whose beliefs are valid and whose are shown to be the betrayal of everything upon which our republic was founded.

                        • Your way is a proven failure. Islam being respected as a religion is just a cultural suicide. Good work on taking a stand on what is out to enslave your own future generations. How “tolerant” of you.

                          “My way” is the reason you’re free to post your Anti-American rants on the internet. My way is the reason we have Churches, Synagogues, Mosques, and Temples as well as Courthouses, Libraries and Public schools. My way is to follow the Constitution. Which makes it very clear we live in a secular, pluralistic society.

                          If you wish to live in a Theocracy you will have to live elsewhere. Try the Middle-East. I understand that sort of thing is very common there.

                        • If I wanted to live in a Theocracy I would not be opposing Islam. Yes, when it comes to Islam your way is a complete failure. Muslims use Constitution against America in order to slowly change the country to suit Islam. Aided by gutless leftists like you.

                        • Allgone

                          As an American you have Constitutional rights. Guarantees that freedom of speech and religion will be safe from government interference. Guarantees that allow rallies or peaceful protests, so your voice can be heard; ways to seek assistance from the government to address your concerns, for just a few.
                          You seem to have the “you have” part down pat. It’s the “As an American” that seems to be giving you trouble. “As an American” I have the very same rights as you do. Those rights are not contingent on my religion, or require that I follow any religion at all. They are not contingent on my mode of dress, manner of speech or dietary choices.
                          Orthodox Jews in Williamsburg, Amish in Pennsylvania, Muslims in Texas, Mormons in Utah,all have the same rights. Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Expression. My defense of these things has absolutely nothing to do with defending a specific religion. My defense is of the Constitution. And there is nothing “gutless” about it.

        cannot even carry the Bible.

          • bjuhlmer

            You have not been paying attention. Children are forbidden to bring anything to school that relates to Christianity. A six-year old was told he could not pass out candy canes with a Bible verse to his playmates at school. Others have been told to turn their shirt inside out if there was text on it that referred to Christianity. That is just a couple of many such incidents. Valedictorians have had their speeches censored if they include any reference to Christ or even to God. Bible study groups have been barred from meeting on school property, even if they meet after school and the event is student-initiated. The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) is fighting hundreds of lawsuits against Christians who are being denied their basic Constitutional rights. http://aclj.org/

              Bringing Christian items and distributing items are two very different things. Christians are no more restricted than any other religion.

                Oh my goodness, please read my statement above. you need to educate yourself about Islam and what the intent of Islam and Muslims (who are not of another faith) are wanting to do and are in the process of doing all over the world. Are they going to have a Hebrew class, since that is a language class, and are they going to discuss Christianity has all the good that has been done by Christians all over the world? I don’t think so. NO ISLAM IN SCHOOLS, IT IS INDOCTRINATION, period.

          In my place of work there is a meditation room. It can be used by any faith. when prayer time falls within work (1 time a day normally) I use that room. Would it be terrible if a “recess” time was also used by Muslims for prayer?

              • sam

                That’s why it’s NOt the word of God. Whereas, the Quran IS the WORD OF GOD – therefore it will never be changed.

                They didn’t rewrite the Old Testament. Christians just say parts no longer apply (unless those parts suit their argument). Research the part of the Quran that states to protect life, forgive, and help others. It’s there too.

                If you don’t understand your faith, don’t mislead others. Jesus said in your faith “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them” Do you know what it says about those who add on or take away from the Book?

          • Allgone

            What the Koran says or doesn’t has nothing to do with learning a language.

            the Koran is often taken out of context. There are many things which applied at the time of its writing that don’t in modern times (like the Bible). The primary message has always been peace and Jesus (Issa in the Quran) (pbuh) is revered as a Prophet of Allah, as is Mohammed.

              • Brian George

                I am a Muslim. I don’t have to ask anything. But I know you are stating that apsotasy is punishable by death. But I would never kill anyone or want anyone to die for their faith. But again I’m a mMuslim and not someone just making judgement on Muslims.

                • Andreja Jellen

                  You can not have it both ways. Your book is very specific and the word of God according to you. So if you refuse to follow Mo’s teachings you are not a Muslim.

                  Bukhari (52:260) – “…The Prophet said, ‘If somebody (a Muslim) discards
                  his religion, kill him.’ ” Note that there is no distinction
                  as to how that Muslim came to be a Muslim.

                  Bukhari (83:37) – “Allah’s Apostle never killed anyone except in one of
                  the following three situations: (1) A person who killed somebody unjustly, was
                  killed (in Qisas,) (2) a married person who committed illegal sexual intercourse
                  and (3) a man who fought against Allah and His Apostle and deserted Islam and
                  became an apostate.”

                  Bukhari (84:57) – [In the words of] “Allah’s Apostle, ‘Whoever changed
                  his Islamic religion, then kill him.'”

                  Bukhari (89:271) – A man who embraces Islam, then reverts to Judaism is to
                  be killed according to “the verdict of Allah and his apostle.”

                • Andreja Jellen

                  Qur’an (4:89)
                  – “They wish that you should disbelieve as they disbelieve, and then you
                  would be equal; therefore take not to yourselves friends of them, until they
                  emigrate in the way of God; then, if they turn their backs, take them, and slay
                  them wherever you find them; take not to yourselves any one of them as friend or
                  helper.”

                  Qur’an (9:11-12)
                  – “But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then are
                  they your brethren in religion. We detail Our revelations for a people who have
                  knowledge. And if they break their pledges after their treaty (hath been made
                  with you) and assail your religion, then fight the heads of disbelief – Lo! they
                  have no binding oaths – in order that they may desist.”

                • So what? Anyone can become a Muslim. As for the rest, you have no say at all in Islamic jurisprudence. So your point is?

        “Muslim Brotherhood ‘Princess”
        [Huma Abedin] Used Clinton Email Server

        Reports: 3 top aides had private accounts while Hillary
        was at State Department

        Published: 03/11/2015 at 9:10 PM

        “The State Department has evidence of this.”

        In another report, the website Gawker claimed both Abedin and
        Phillippe Reines, Clinton’s communications strategist, used the private email
        addresses.

        The London Daily Mail confirmed one of Abedin’s email
        addresses was listed as Huma@clintonemail.com.

        At least three of Hillary Clinton’s top aides – including one with ties to the
        Muslim Brotherhood – used emails hosted on Clinton’s private server while she
        was secretary of state, according to several reports.

        At a news conference Tuesday at the U.N., Clinton directly
        addressed media about the revelation that she conducted her business as
        secretary of state using a private email account instead of the secure and
        archived government system.

        “Hillary Clinton is just the tip of the iceberg. Her husband bombed Belgrade for 84 days to give Islam its first ethnically cleansed emirate in Europe after 1489. Bush and Blair, as hired guns of the Saudi Caliphate deflected 9/11 anger to a liberal modern state where discos, bars, modern education and health services thrived along communities of Jews, Christians, Yazidis and other under Saddam Hussein which was an affront to Islam and sank more than Three Trillion Dollars and 5,000 soldiers leaving Islam’s agenda of carrying out their “prophet’s” command of establishing a global caliphate enforcing the “sharia” on the rubble of civilization, that much closer to
        accomplishment. Obama and the Saudis restarted the Cold War in reaction to (1) Putin’s open letter to Obama in the New York Times about Syria which obstructed the Grand Saudi Design (which is to carry out the commands of its “prophet” and establish a global caliphate enforcing ISIS style Sharia on the rubble of civilization). It also bent Obama’s nose by exposing White House vacuity. (2) Bandar of Saudi intelligence then went to Moscow to try and induce Putin to reconsider his support for Syria and opposition to the Islamic grand design. Putin sent him packing with a warning: That Russia would bomb the Q’aaba if Islam tried another Beslan at Sochi. There was, here, betwixt the US and Saudi Arabia, a congruence of bent noses motivated to harness the always dormant US
        predilection to fall prey to its own McCarthy-Hoover-Boston Witch Hunt proclivity driven propaganda. Russia bad, West good. Islam Bad but Turkey, Saudi, Qatar, Kuwait and Pakistan are good Islam. Imagine, if you can, the dividend for Islam if the US falls further upon its own sword than it did in Iraq? Saudi ambitions are now bent on further deflecting the rising wide spread anger against Islam to Iran from itself. Several retired Four Star Generals and Admirals have followed in Colin Powell’s foot-steps and testified before recent within the last two months) Senate hearings that Iran is the danger and that Iran is the reason and source of ISIS as well as that ghost of a long defunct US-Pakistan Staff College of Guerrilla Warfare, that still haunts US propaganda, “Al Qaeda”. The Saudis may still get away with “Iran Bad, Saudi (aka ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Shebab, Taliban, Mosques, Madrassas, Pakistan et all) Good”, because US policy is driven by decision and opinion makers, as well as media, on Petro Dollar Pay Rolls, and the momentum of “Four legs good, two legs bad” built up in the psyche of the US Polyphemus is strong and easy to stoke. Even more than liberal modern regimes like the Baathists (Saddam Hussein and Bashar Al Assad), Saudi Wahhabi Islam is ideologically committed to eradicate “apostates” such as Iran (Shia), Jews and Christians, in this order. If the US, after throwing Syria to the wolves of Saudi-Wahhabi Islam, and recommencing the Cold War with Russia, now bogs down in Iran, Saudi Arabia would have advanced their “prophet’s’ agenda to near completion. As a strategist, I must admire Saudi Arabia for how they
        used their wealth to buy and use their ideological enemy the US, NATO and Israel against themselves.”

            We Muslims don’t fight with fellow Muslims – it is Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Jews and West that divide us.
            We Muslims do not allow any debate because our word is final and pure.
            We Muslims have facts and don’t need to present them.
            We Muslims know what really happened.
            We Muslims are always right.

                  Where ever ISIS is at, there is trouble for all man kind. They do not go by the Qur’an, therefore they are not Muslims. They are killing Islam by their actions. They shame true Muslims around the world. They have brought back the Caliphate whish will destroy Islam. It was what cause a separation in Islam. The Shia follow the decendant of the Prohet, while the Sunni follow a man who porclaims to have more knowledge of the Qur’an. The way of the Prophet is the only way. Did he not make it clear in the Holy book? Did he not repate what the GOD of Abraham told him? It is in the prophecies in the Torah and the Gospels, as it is written in Surah 7:58>Those who follow the messenger, the Immaculate One, whom they find mentioned in the Torah and the Gospel which are with them. GOD never lies. The Prophet doesn’t lie, because he can only speak the words given him by GOD. As fortold in Deuteronomy 18:18. “I will raise them up a prophet from among their brethern [brothers], like unto thee,and will put MY Words in His mouth and He will speak unto them all that I shall command him.” The Bible is full of GOD’s Word about the Prophet and a new religion, from the book fo Genesis thru the Book of Revelation. Seek, and you shall find words to answer all your questions of things that are happening now and tomorrow. It is a shame that ministers are afrain to read the prophecies. They are afraid they may make a mistake, no, they have not the faith to search for knowledge that GOD openly gives us in scripture. Amy GOD bless all who believe and help those that do not. Nuff-said.

                  • REAL ENEMY

                    Straight and simple. If you kill someone, just because his/her faith is different from yours, the humanity (God) is dead in you, and a devil has taken place, who ordered you to kill. God will never come down to earth to tell, You did the right or wrong thing. That is why Humans are different from animals, in which the brain is more developed.

The school is teaching a language. Not a religion.

          Real enemy, I never seen an idiot and uneducated like you. I am a Jewish and I think the biggest crime in this world was the creation of Israel. And, the Zionists are dirtiest criminals on earth as they have done many Holocausts against the Muslims in the name of the poor innocent Jews died in that crime. Islam has nothing to do with that crime.

          The name you chose is the biggest prove that you are an idiot and full of hate to one religion under the name of Jesus (if you are Christian) or under the name of Mosses (if you are a Jewish). Actually, you are neither but you think you are because real Christian and real Jews are full of love and not hate.

                    As because non-Muslims killed other non-Muslims, so why Muslims should be behind. Why to keep Islam a peaceful religion, carry out beheading, flogging, amputate, bombing, kidnapping, threatening infidels, other minority muslims, blow off mosque, antiques palmyar temples, blow of buddhist temples.

                    • Peace for all

                      Ok! now you are asking serious question. See “beheading, flogging, amputate, bombing, kidnapping………”, is not something that Islam teaches to its followers. If a Muslims does something wrong whether in the name of Islam or otherwise, it’s not the fault of Islam. Don’t take Islam as a magic that takes over the followers and make them zombies. Islam shows you the right direction. You follow it correctly or not is your own choice.

If it was really a Muslim organization, why Muslims countries would be bombing it. Its the game of agencies dear.

                          What you thinks Muslims suddenly started such terrorism on 911 2001, 1400 years after Muhammad (PBUH). They were praised as Mujahideen in 1980s by Americans and then became terrorist when it was US to invade Afghanistan. Try to think.

                          Yes the word Kafir exactly means non-believer in Arabic. Its not a bad word as people usually take it. You can say I am Kafir for you.

                        • Peace for all

                          You have learnt the itsy bitsy parts of the scripture without the actual context. The part you quoted is a small portion of verse where war tactics are being taught to the Muslims. The actual verses are:
                          Quran 9:5-6
                          “Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (5) And if anyone of the idolaters seeketh thy protection (O Muhammad), then protect him so that he may hear the Word of Allah, and afterward convey him to his place of safety. That is because they are a folk who know not. (6)”

                          We all know wars are about killings, but it is clear from these verses that in Islam killing is for those kafirs who are fighting with you. And rather protection for those who do not want war with you. I don’t about you but it makes perfect sense to me.

                        • REAL ENEMY

                          Muslims often accuse other religions of idolatry. Yet Muslims bow down to a pagan temple called the “Kaaba” (which is what the pagans of Arabia did before the rise of Islam); they take a pilgrimage to the Kaaba (which is what the pagans of Arabia did before the rise of Islam); they walk circles around the Kaaba (which is what the pagans of Arabia did before the rise of Islam); and they kiss the black stone embedded in the corner of the Kaaba (which is what the pagans of Arabia did before the rise of Islam).

                        • Peace for all

                          Kaaba is taken as a direction to pray, instead of everyone praying in his own direction. It is never taken as a idol. People in the history and even today climb and stand on the roof of Kaaba. Will any idolater do that to his idol? And about the black stone.

                          I am not an ardent follower of religions. I feel at peace when I visit Church. Jesus is the real messenger of God, who never said he is a God. He died for the sins of others.

                        • Peace for all

                          It’s good to know that that you believe in Jesus and that he was messenger of God. You might know that Islam is the only religion other than Christianity that recognizes and gives respect to the Prophet Jesus (PBUH). The difference is that Islam does not take him as God (same as you) or son of God. He was one of the many messengers of God, who with the will of God tried to make people believe in true God. Whom we can’t see and is one and only. Muhammad (PBUH) was the last one of this list of messengers. Who also the taught the same thing. Muhammad (PBUH) was the mightiest of all messengers who was prophesied by many even Jesus (PBUH) himself.
                          Qur’an 7:57 “Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (scriptures) in the law and the Gospel”.

                          Muhammad mentioned in Christian scriptures:
                          Deuteronomy 18:18″I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.”

                          Isaiah chapter 29 verse 12:
                          “And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.”
                          That is exactly what happened when Archangel Gabrail commanded Muhammad (pbuh) by saying Iqra – “Read”, he replied, “I am not learned”.

                          Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is mentioned by name in the Song of Solomon chapter 5 verse 16:

                          (Hebrew) “Hikko Mamittakim we kullo Muhammadim Zehdoodeh wa Zehraee Bayna Jerusalem.”

                          (English) “His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.”

                          In English translation the word of “Muhammad” is also translated as “beloved one”. The Arabic meaning of Muhammad is also “beloved one”.

                          Here are some verses from Christian scriptures about killing others.

                          Numbers 31:7,17-18

                          “They fought against Midian, as the LORD commanded Moses, and killed every man……..Now kill all the boys [innocent kids]. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.”

                          Numbers 25
                          17 “Treat the Midianites as enemies and kill them, 8 because they treated you as enemies when they deceived you in the affair of Peor and their sister Cozbi, the daughter of a Midianite leader, the woman who was killed when the plague came as a result of Peor.”

                          Deuteronomy 20:16
                          However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes.

                          There are many more. But in contrast Quran says:

                          Quran, 5:32 “On that account: We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone slew a person – unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land – it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our apostles with clear signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.”

            Safiyah Bint Huyeiy Ibn Akhtab, the Jewish woman who was captured when Muhammad’s troops attacked Kheibar and brought her to the Prophet as part of his share of the booty. Muhammad ordered Kinana, the young husband of Safia to be tortured to death to make him reveal the whereabouts of the treasure of the town. On the very nigh of that murder, he took Safia to his bed and claimed that young girl as his trophy. This story is reported by Tabari in detail. It can also be found in Sira of Ibn Ishaq. The following is reported in the Book of Tabaqat compiled by Ibn Sa’d

            • nuur12345

              A look at Western publications to the subject by non-Muslim scholars who studied the early sources you are misquoting is showing the ignorance and foolishness of your slander:

              We have in fact the Prophet(P) making the following offer to her, as recorded by Martin Lings:
              “He [the Prophet Muhammad – Ed.] then told Safiyyah that he was prepared to set her free, and he offered her the choice between remaining a Jewess and returning to her people or entering Islam and becoming his wife. “I choose God and His Messenger,” she said; and they were married at the first halt on the homeward march.” (Martin Lings, Muhammad: His Life Based On The Earliest Sources (George Allen & Unwin, 1983), p. 269.

              The marriage to Safiyyah(R) has a political significance as well, as it helps to reduce hostilities and cement alliances. John L. Esposito notes that
              “As was customary for Arab chiefs, many were political marriages to cement alliances. Others were marriages to the widows of his companions who had fallen in combat and were in need of protection.” (John L. Esposito, Islam: The Straight Path, pp. 19-20.

              AND for more clarification:
              This significant act of marrying Safiyyah(R) was indeed a great honour for her, for this not only preserved her dignity, it also prevented her from becoming a slave. Haykal notes that:
              “The Prophet granted her freedom and then married her, following the examples of great conquerors who married the daughters and wives of the kings whom they had conquered, partly in order to alleviate their tragedy and partly to preserve their dignity.” (Muhammad Husayn Haykal, The Life of Muhammad (North American Trust Publications, 1976), p. 373.

                Man or Mohammad can never be God. What ever you are quoting, its a man written. God never came down to earth to write all these filth. If You dont have humanity, then God is dead inside You and the devil has taken place. So keep this quotes with U.

                  Seriously?! This is your answer??!!!
                  Ducking the subject you sorrily failed at!!!

                  Nobody ever claimed man or Muhammad being God. Only the Christians speak of God becoming man, but most certainly do Muslims not suffer any confusion on this topic.
                  The Quran is the revelation from God, just like the 10 Commandments to Moses. Just like the messenger Jesus received revelation. They all preached the same message of ‘humanity’ and improved their people. As a quote to remember for you maybe: ‘You should not lie!’ – something you obviously did in your post above.

                  • REAL ENEMY

                    Prove me, that the quotes are God written? Someone wrote God as he? How does he know that the gender of the God is he? What is the meaning of God, you tell me? Mohammad declared himself as prophet with no miracles, he died in natural way. If Mohammad was prophet, why he has lust, married numerous times, captured and enslaved people, forced Islam on others.

                    • nuur12345

                      All prophets died – what a nonsensical argument!

                      Quran was recited before written, recited to the Prophet and memorized by his contemporaries. It was also partly noted down by those who were able to write. Prophet Muhammad never wrote the Quran, as he did not know how to write. The Arabs at the time, who had a high culture of poetry were not able to produce verses with the same attributes and until today the literary value and depth of the Quran could not be equalled. And that is only about the literary side of the book that was revealed over 23 years and did not have edited versions or corrections, like any other book that survives that long on a market would have. Contrary to the scriptures of the Torah and the Bible who were written hundreds of years later by men representing their opinions about the revelations, the Quran was written on the spot by those who intimately had witnessed its revelation and knew about its the implementation of its verses. Huge differences that you would like to ignore

                      But most importantly, the fact, THAT YOU HAVE TO CHANGE THE TOPIC at this point and are unable to respond to my rebuttal is telling me that you are standing on very thin ice and you know it!

                    Haven’t got any reply. Sorry to bother U? In what language did the God write those quotes? Arabic? Muslims dont suffer any confusion, but look at Syria, Libya, mass migrating to Europe, Christian dominated countries, no rich Arab countries, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arab, UAE, Muscat, are taking them. And once the refugee Muslims settle in Europe demand for benefits (Darul-Harap), build mosques, whihc you see what is happening in UK.

                    • nuur12345

                      God’s revelation occurred in the language of relevant to the people, he was addressing.

                      As for the rest:
                      You need to look thoroughly at history preceding the dismantling of the Ottoman Empire.
                      These countries were created to suit Western interests.
                      1. Syrian dynasty of Asad was installed by British.
                      2. Palestinian soil was illegally handed over to European Zionists by the British who were there on an international ADMINISTRATIVE MISSION ( the land did not belong to them).
                      3. Libya has suffered from Western intervention, civilian drone bombings, mingling in national affairs.
                      4. Qatar, Oman, SA, UAE, Yemen…they all used to be part of one state, but were seen too dangerous in power so were split into countries by the West and dynasties were installed by the West and supported politically and in trade agreements that benefit the petro-dollar system.

                      Why do you think it’s messed up?! Because someone messes with it for decades! Because outside forces with strong strategical and economical interest support dictatorships in these countries and arm those very autocrats generously with weapons and reasons to fight each other. And when they run out of reasons, Israel is there to make a move to continue the eternal conflicts that hurt whom first?! The local civilian population, who does not now where to turn to. Even the teargas on the streets of Egypt is from the US, not to speak about the weapon systems all over the region. Someone is taking good care of their interests through puppet regimes and bullying entire nations into misery and conflict. Again, history, modern day history – do some research!!!

              This is a great example of your assumptions. If you believe in any God, you’re sinning by spreading these lies. Stay neutral until you’re done questioning. The Quran speaks more than once about the treatment of those who believe in the older scripture, and it commands respect. It even allows marriage to them. It would be sinful to treat others unfairly, even atheists. I understand they get the death penalty in some backwards governments, but that’s not in the Quran. Sharia law must be stopped at all costs. What if your country suddenly gave up it’s laws for religious ones, and it was clearly made up? Many countries interpret it differently

              • Under Islam anyone can be put to death for “spreading mischief”, which can be defined as most anything. The concept is called fasad. So here is a clue, NOTHING you say will get me to want to live under Islamic rule. Got it now?

I just hope you’re given a fair chance to see what the prophets and many others have seen, regardless of believe before you die. Sure, there is a minority of mentally ill or culturally influenced Muslims that seem the polar opposite of the faith, but that happens much easier in any place without much law enforcement

Obviously he belongs to the segment of American & Western Society which is fast becoming bastardized as more and more do not know who fathered them due to break down of moral values.

        If any one wants to accuse the Muslims and the Quran – of being a death cult on the basis of a distorted and out of context interpretation they are free to do so. If indeed Islam was a death cult it would have slaughtered all the Jews, Christians and Idolaters in the Muslim world centuries ago. Groups like ISIS, Al Qaeda, Al Shabab, Boko Haraam, who have placed the Islamic tag on their movements do not represent mainstream fundamentalist Islamic thought. If you want us to condemn them – well we do not need go out of the way to do so as we the fundamentalist main stream Muslims did not create them – they are caused by the fallout of the ruthless policy of loot, plunder and genocide adopted by America and its Western Allies in the lands of the Muslims. If the West cannot change its attitude towards the Muslim world and operate on an even playing field with them (the Muslim world) it will always have to face up to this terrorism even in there own lands as fringe elements will keep resorting to such tactics in desperation to vent their frustrations

        Islam is indeed a Religion of Peace (Islam literally in Arabic means peace) and its founder the finest and noblest of all humankind. If people truly want to understand Islam and its message of eternal salvation they should approach the authentic orthodox scholars in there locality instead of relying on the Islam-phobic media

        • AmericanWoman

          Islam does not literally mean peace in Arabic. It means Submission. Muslims are always trying to change the meaning of words in Arabic to sugar coat their religion. Funny how they have changed the meaning of words in the Quran to mean something entirely different so it does not seem so barbaric and medieval.

          • Ibn Yusuf

            ‘Islam’ is derived from the Arabic word ‘Salaam’ – meaning peace. So it is not sugar coated but a deliberate attempt to distort by the Islamphobes

          Umar finished what he needed and left. Later, Uthman requested permission to

          Ibn Yusuf
          For sake of argument let us say that everything you have said is true. please tell me why millions upon millions of you choose to flee your own nations for life in the West? Very few westerners seek to live in your lands. Based on those numbers alone it would seem that you need us far more than we need you. You say main stream Muslims did not create Groups like ISIS, Al Qaeda, Al Shabab, Boko Haraam, ok But I RARLY hear you speak against their activities. you say the West should change its attitude towards the Muslim world and operate on an even playing field with them. what does that mean? Clearly we are doing something right, after all there are nearly 3 million Muslim immigrants in the United States alone. Do you REALLY want an even playing field? to me that would mean passing laws that match your laws. for example: make Christianity the official state religion and deny citizenship to non Christians. Religious symbols by non Christians, are banned / Construction of any mosque is prohibited. Everything I have said here reflect legal restrictions against Christians in Saudi Arabia. so again I ask Do you really want an even playing field? What say you

          • Ibn Yusuf

            The reasons are obvious – they are political or economic. The people in the West enjoy a high standard of living. And how do they enjoy this? Years of imperialistic rule where they looted the resources of third world countries paying them a pittance. To this day they continue to exploit these nations – having proxy leaders to do there bidding. Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Iraq, Algeria, Afghanistan etc are good examples. The west owned media does a good cover up to show the West as very generous in giving a pittance as Aid from what they looted to these nations through various programmes directly and via NGO’s. On top of these in all these Muslim nations Muslims with a fundamentalist outlook with even non violent tendencies live at great risk. The sporting of a beard or wearing hijab or niqab will surely make you be under surveillance with the risk of being kidnapped and disappearing.

            So if you are so naive and just swallow what your media and Govt. dish out please do not expect the Muslims to swallow them. So the refugee flood is due to this. Do not howl your tax money is being used. In fact they (the refugees are reclaiming only what that has been looted from there nations at a pittance)

            Further your claim that America belongs to the West is a falsity. It is Asian colonized by the West by committing one of the biggest acts of mass genocide in recent history

            Further Non Muslims enjoy a wide level of tolerance in Muslim countries despite negative and overplaying by the western media of isolated incidents

            Further the West encourages immigration for their own economic benefit and needs not because they have any love for them (the migrants / refugees). They expected the Muslims to be overawed by the culture of the West and abandon their faith. But the world wide revival of Islam put paid to all those hopes when the Muslims began to assert their Islamic way of life.

            • solvermn

              I understand your argument but disagree on a fundamental point. the 1st thing you said about reasons your people come to the West was was “The reasons are obvious -The people in
              the West enjoy a high standard of living.” There is NOTHING western nations have done that Muslim nations, with hard work, determination, and patience, could not have done in the past 70 years since WW II ended. As an example Israel is a very new country surrounded by Muslim enemies. By every standard it is a modern prosperous nation. They, like their Muslim neighbors, come in all colors. surrounded by enemies the have thrived and made the desert bloom. Are you not just as smart as them? 10 times as numerous? with 10 times the natural resources? Israel is about 70 years old. There is NO reason why Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Iraq, Algeria, Afghanistan etc do not have the same standard of living as Israel, and other western nations, unless you think Muslims are less competent than Christians and Jews.

              • Ibn Yusuf

                Israel??. I will call it occupied Palestine. Do you seriously think your comparing of occupied Palestine and its prosperity under the Zionists is justified? It is nothing but a fortress planted, built and sustained by the West using the full might of its technology and economic resources to make it bloom and prosper unfettered. The Muslim world would have easily equaled or surpassed them given such favored status assistance as has been proved by history

                • solvermn

                  call it occupied Palestine if you want . My statement stands. Israel is under 70 years old. all of its neighbors are hundreds of years old. Egypt and Lebanon are over a thousand years old. Am I wrong to say that ALL of Israel’s neighbors are just as smart as the people of Israel ? just as hard working? have more natural resources to work with and a larger population? You say Israel is a fortress planted, built and sustained by the West using the full might of its technology and economic resources to make it bloom and prosper unfettered. ” Are you suggesting that Israel has something it’s neighbors do not have access to? Germany was TOTALLY destroyed in wwll. None of Israel’s neighbors had even a fraction of that kind of damage. But Germany is now modern and rebuilt. So I ask you again why in the same period of about 70 years has Israel and Germany starting with nothing got a higher standard of living than Israel’s neighbors.

                  • Ibn Yusuf

                    I also stand by my statement. You are naive and do not see the obvious undercurrents at play in the West’s ruthless manipulation of the affairs of the Muslim world to subjugate and rule over it by remote access

                    • solvermn

                      Ibn you have been very civil and we must agree to disagree over many areas. still I do not see Christians or Jews as being any smarter than Muslims, so if you can please tell me why in the same period of about 70 years has Israel starting with nothing got a higher standard of living than it’s neighbors who are older and established??

        WHY DO MUSLIMS KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE:

        Bukhari (52:256) – The Prophet… was asked whether it was permissible to
        attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women
        and children to danger. The Prophet replied, “They (i.e. women and
        children) are from them (i.e. pagans).” In this command,
        Muhammad establishes that it is permissible to kill non-combatants in the
        process of killing a perceived enemy. This provides justification for the
        many Islamic terror bombings.

        but a little while. Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and

        the slaughter (rendered “merciless” and “horrible murder”
        in other translations) against three groups: Hypocrites (Muslims who refuse to
        “fight in the way of Allah” (3:167) and hence don’t act as Muslims should), those

      • MOHAMADSLAYER

        Quran (8:12)
        – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve.
        Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of
        them” No reasonable person would interpret this to mean a
        spiritual struggle.

      • MOHAMADSLAYER

        Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with
        terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to
        help.”

        h – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts
        of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He
        had sent no authority”.
        AGAIN, KILL THE NON MUSLIM, ITS A FACT

      • MOHAMADSLAYER

        Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn
        them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief]
        is worse than killing…

        but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving
        and merciful. And fight them until there is no
        more Fitnah [disbelief
        and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone.
        BECOME MUSLIM OR DIE,, ITS A FACT

        • vcpitts2

          So basically slaughter all that are not Muslim. We get it, and don’t want it.

        Sahih Bukhari Volume 8, Book 73, Number 151

        Narrated ‘Aisha:

        I used to play with the dolls in the presence of the Prophet, and my girl
        friends also used to play with me. When Allah’s Apostle used to enter (my
        dwelling place) they used to hide themselves, but the Prophet would call them
        to join and play with me. (The playing with the dolls and similar images is
        forbidden, but it was allowed for ‘Aisha at that time, as she was a little
        girl, not yet reached the age of puberty.) (Fateh-al-Bari page 143, Vol.13)

      • MOHAMADSLAYER

        Sahih Bukhari 5.236.

        Narrated Hisham’s father:

        Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed there
        for two years or so and then he married ‘Aisha when she was a girl of six years
        of age, and he consumed that marriage when she was nine years old.

      • Crispus

        The left has an agenda with this. Arabic is the language most people associate with islam. If kids are taking Arabic language classes even if religion is not involved they will be slightly that more islam friendly….which is how the left wants them.

      • MOHAMADSLAYER

        Sahih Bukhari Volume 7,
        Book 62, Number 64

        Narrated ‘Aisha:

        that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated
        his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him
        for nine years (i.e., till his death).

      • MOHAMADSLAYER

        GO READ QURAN AND FIND OUT FOR YOURSELFS ABOUT ISLAM,,,,, GO READ THE JIHAD VERSES,, THE CALL TO KILL AND BE KILLED FOR A FAKE GOD AND A DIRTY DEMONIC FAKE PROPHET THEY CALLED MOHAMAD THE PEDOFILE WHO RAPED AISHA AT 9 YRS OLD,,

      • Immortan Tony

        What a bunch of retarded looking people. Of course they’re all old and look like the “get off my lawn” types.
        Wow I bet these idiots must feel real proud of themselves for protesting a bunch of kids rather than someone their own size.

        • MOHAMADSLAYER

          TONY,, HOW DOES A RETARDED PERSON LOOK????,, IMMORON TONY ITS ABOUT ISLAM,, NOT ARABIC,,,,, DONT U LIBERALS GET IT YET, ISLAM IS THE ENEMY TO OUR NATION LIKE IT IS TO EUROPE,,,,,, TONYYY BOY,, THEY WERE NOT PROTESTING KIDS SILLY BOY,, IT WAS ISLAM,, GO READ THE OVER 100 VERSES IN QURAN CALLING FOR YOU TO DIE TONY AND DIE BY THE HAND OF A MUSLIM,,, THIS IS IN QURAN ,, WAKE UP LIBERALS

          • Immortan Tony

            Like these idiots in the video obviously. Funny how you bring up your political fanboyism when you mention “you liberals” without even knowing me. Unlike yourself I have no political allegiance since I can think for myself.

            If they wanted to protest Islam why not do it anywhere else besides a school? Sounds like they were protesting kids to me.

            • MOHAMADSLAYER

              TONY HAS SWALLOWED IT ALL,, WOW

              • Immortan Tony

                I’m sure you’re familiar with “swallowing”. After all you do sleep with your dad every night.

                  TONY BOY, U SOUND LIKE A MUSLIM NOW,, SAD

      • Zumbur

        For America to be considered a first world country and the number 1 country in the world, people here are straight jackasses. They’re teaching Arabic idiots not Islam, you idiots have any idea how many Arabic speaking Christians there are. Or how many Arabic speaking Jews there is. Wow it’s just mind boggling how stupid Americans can get. I swear Americans are showing out stupider and stupider they are everyday. May God have mercy on their souls….or not.

        • MOHAMADSLAYER

          ZUMMY,,,,,, THIS IS AMERICA ,, NOT ARABIA,,,, NO NEED FOR ARABIC TO BE SPOKEN HERE IN USA , SPANISH YES,, WHO CARES IS CHRISTAINS SPEAK ARABIC IN THE MIDDLE EAST,,, THE CHRISTAINS WERE SPEAKING ARABIC BEFORE THE DIRTY MOAHAMAD WAS BORN U IDIOT,,, ISLAMI STOLE EVERYTHING WHEN IT WOULD INVADE NATIONS,,, ZUMMMMY,, UR A STRAIGHT UP JACKASS FOR SURE

            “WHO CARES IS CHRISTAINS SPEAK ARABIC” First of all please hit that caps locks button right next to you’re left pinky. Second of all learn to spell and have better grammar. Once you’ve finished those tasks reply back with a more intelligent comment. Thank you for your time.

            • Kim Vladu

              Zumbar, if you don’t like what America does or what Americans do, pack up, get the h** out. We don’t want you here in the first place and we’re not here to appease you. Why must American children spend half their day in classes taught in Arabic? This is an English speaking nation so why spend lessons in a language they do not speak? The parents protests are quite understandable.

              • Zumbur

                First of all no this is not an English speaking nation, this is a nation full people from different parts of the world who speak several languages. How come people are not protesting schools teaching other languages? And If you’re not an American-Indian you’re an immigrant. So don’t act like this land belongs to you because it doesn’t. You’re just like me a person who was raised and born in America.

                • Kim Vladu

                  Lies. English is the first language of this nation thus it is an English speaking nation. Don’t even try to mention my heritage, because first of all, you don’t know it, secondly you can not possibly try to compare 1492 to the 2015. Actually, yes you will try because you have a small brain filled with Islamic lies.

                  • Zumbur

                    What does Islamic lies have to do with 1492-2015? Islam was founded way before America was. So Islam never taught anything about America. Also you idiot do you even know the origins of the english language? Do some research and find out where it came from.

                    • Kim Vladu

                      Or, perhaps you’re so crazed by Islam that you don’t realize any other history. And nope, I won’t help you there. Remain in your Islamic ISIS state of ignorance.

                      • Zumbur

                        Victory smells sooo good!! And please don’t bring up ISIS or Bin-Laden or anything like that because you’re government was directly involved in their creations. Again go back to your history and look it up. I’m done I’ve got to get some sleep, it was nice chatting with you.

                        • Kim Vladu

                          Victory? You truly are the ISIS clown I imagined. Why should I go and research anything that a crazed minded Muslim suggest? I won’t waste my time, besides I know my country’s history. But do you know your Islamic false doctrines?… burn them.
                          P.S- The enjoyment has not been likewise.

            • Kim Vladu

              Tahir, if you respect Jesus as one of the beloved prophets of allah,then you don’t respect Him at all because he wasn’t a prophet but THE SON OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD.

        • Sam Banter

          Do all of you muslims get this hyper and hysterical, and just do name calling and insult American non-muslims. Why do you muslims hate non-muslims and Christians so much? I know you hate gays. Why are you so angry and full of hate. You cannot see another person’s point of view, and cannot tolerate any one to think differently from you. Why are you muslims always wanting everyone to be clones of yourselves?

        • Kim Vladu

          America is not considered a first world country, it IS a first world country, something that you Muslims envy. And why should what Americans do or think concern you? Take care of your own business

          • Zumbur

            It does concern me because I was born and lived here my whole life. So when people all over the world see this they’ll think that all Americans are idiots. Not knowing it’s only you and you’re hooded wearing friends who bring the IQ of this country down.

            • Kim Vladu

              How funny, as if you know I wear a hood, I will allow you to remain ignorant. You state that Americans are “showing out stupider and stupider…” But you were born and lived here all your life? Well, it sounds as if you’re the “stupider” one for just making the comment. Nope, the whole world will see the truth; that it is not necessary for American children to spend HALF THE DAY in classes taught in Arabic. There is no clear reasoning behind it and parents have the right to protest it. Now take your ISIS talking self to la la land.

      • Jack Rumba

        We need more Arabic speakers in the country–it’s good for our military and CIA intelligence. Nothing wrong with learning a language–it’s not Islam, it a Language. Grow up, Texans! You must be Trump lovers!

        • MOHAMADSLAYER

          JACK,, AND U MUST BE A OVOMIT LOVER ,,,, HUH,,,,,, MORON THANK U ,,AND JACK,,,, TRUMP WILL BE OUR NEXT PRESIDENT,, U WATCH,,JACK,, WHO U GONNA SPEAK ARABIC TO ??????, OH AND OUR UNDOCUMENTED B IRTH CERTIFICATE WHICH WE HAVE NOT SEEN YET FROM ODIMWIT BARRY SOTEREO,,,WHERE IS HIS #SS NUMBER??????JACK YOUR GUY SCREWED THIS COUNTRY UP THANKS A LOT LOW INFORMATION VOTER

        • Kim Vladu

          Jack, I take courses in Spanish, Latin, and German. Neither class required me to spend HALF THE DAY in classes taught in those languages and I speak each language fluently. It would be good for our military and CIA if Muslim immigrants, who do wish to assimilate, were quickly deported back where they came from.

          • bmnnoboz

            I highly doubt you speak any language fluently. Please. especially if
            your moronic enough to not know about “immersion” or “immersion
            schools”. Newsflash dumbo, theyre not a new thing. Newsflash dumbo
            they are more effective than your “straight courses”. Newsflash dumbo,
            they’ve been around and utilized in actual countries like Switzerland,
            Canada, UK, Japan, Singapore, etc for years.

            What a frucking moron.
            Write all your old paragraphs in German though. Let us all see how
            fluent you really are Mr. I-Never-Spent-Half-A_Day. Heck write that bs
            in Spanish too, I dont even speak Spanish and I bet yours is garbage too.

        Good job you d_sh_ts, you harassed a bunch of five year olds.

          JETHROOOO,,, DID U SEE ANY KIDS HARRASSED????? I DIDNT,, U MORON LIBERAL PIG

        • Sam Banter

          No kids were harassed, and just like the musim mentality, you use insults and name calling rather than reasoning and logic. The muslims can do nothing but insult non-muslims and do name calling. Is that really how all you towel heads were raised? You hate me because Im a Methodist and you dont even know me. Why I may almost be as wonderful as you are, jethro. The profanity you use, shows your level of humanity. Americans have the freedom of speech, the press, and democracy, which is something you muslims abhor.

      • Jack Rumba

        The Texans are showing their ignorance again. Nowhere in the article does it state that Islam will be studied–just the Arabic language. Arabic (I guess you have to explain this stuff to Texans) is not a religion–it’s a language. Arabic is also spoken by Christians and Jewish people.

        • Kim Vladu

          Lies. Arabic is not a language spoken by many Christians here in the U.S. The U.S. is not the mideast.

      • Charles H Rooney Jr

        This is the United States of America, we speak English and believe in Democracy. These muslims that come to our country because they are looking for a better life and a life from all the violence of the murders and torching of innocent men, women, and children, beheadings that are part of every day life in the land of islam need to assimilate! If they want to bring their terrible rhetoric to the USA then they need to return back to the islamic country where they can feel at home! Assimilate or leave!

              Yep, quran, hadiths , abrogations and emulations of Moe… that’s the problem
              … but occasionally I like to offer a pretext to Americanism

          • Sam Banter

            Tareq will not. He is hates non-muslim Americans, insults them, calls them profane names. He cannot discuss this topic in a reasonable, rational manner. It is people like him who cause the intolerance of American non-muslims. He does not know that if muslims want respect, they must also give some respect. The muslims abhor the Western World’s freedom of religion, speech, the press, and democracy.

            • Roger

              LOL Sam, I don’t disagree, refer you to my post history, reply to Mohamadslayer and expected non-response to my reply to Tareq. There shouldn’t be a question of naivety 😉

        • Drew L

          So proud of it that you can’t even spell it correctly. Way to show your dedication!

            • Drew L

              LOL, you have absolutely no clue, do you? Where was the hate you’re talking about? I never expressed hate, i pointed out the irony of you being so devoted but can’t even spell it right.

              Also, I’m very educated, and not a redneck, but thanks for playing! The fact you don’t use proper sentence structure and have to resort to insults shows your lack of education and maturity.

        • MOHAMADSLAYER

        • Sam Banter

          Spoken like a true islamic hater of non-muslims. The muslimes can only use insults and name-calling, as the muslims above. None can use logic, reasoning, and evidence to support their intolerant views, and hatred of Christians. Im a Methodist, tareq, and you hate me just because Im a Christian. You are also desiring to replace America’s federal, state, and local laws with the primitive sharia laws. Im sure you support, and probably use dowries, and hide your women in granny dresses and towels, be cause a woman’s elbow or ankle arouses you uncontrollably. And it is not racism, you seem too ignorant to know there are only 3 races, Mongoloid, Caucasoid, and Negroid. Americans are disturbed by muslime name calling and insults of all moderate, liberal, and conservative Christians. Your words above show your hatred, and intolerance. When are you going to get sharia laws in your muslim ghetto?

          • Tareq

            Sam we are here to stay and just like you show respect other religions and beliefs you need to respect mine is you want me to reject yours. After all freedom of religion right?? You are the ghetto by talking none sense you Ghetto racist . We respect other religions we have the right to exist and live in peace. America is a melting pot hello wake up.

        • Kim Vladu

          You are an embarrassment to the U.S. A breed of neck-butchering people who say you’re American, but don’t have the respect or love for the nation in which you live. You say it is your home too, then you should behave as if it is so. However,that is difficult for you to do, because in your heart this is not your home and never will be. Your home is the Mideast where you behead one another and act as you say like “dumb, uneducated idiots.” Or, for better terms, wild, ISIS- loving beast. Yes,that is truly who you are and it will always be, because of your nonsensical pride and foolish belief in a false prophet name Mohammed who raped little girls. Definitely, a heritage and religion to boast about, right? Sure, you may pay taxes and wash your filthy butts here, but still that does not make you a true American, because that is of the heart, always remember that as you plan your next jihad.

          • Tareq

            Kim you should be ashamed of what you wrote very racist . You are very unintelligent as I can tell. Read more please. Everyone can practice any religion if they choose too in America. you do not like it leave 🙂

        • Kim Vladu

          Tareq, nope, Just writing truth and truth is not racism. Intelligence comes from knowing truth; therefore I am quite intelligent whether you agree or not, I am not here to appease you. How funny you would tell me to leave when actually it is probably you and your whole tribe that should be deported.

          • Tareq

            I am born and raised here not going anywhere. Dumb people like you and fascist racist need to be deported from our country . Also how many languages you speak ? You say your intelligent !! I speak 5 🙂 Keep your close minded opionions to yourself. I can not stand people like you what a shame you should be ashamed to call yourself American.

            • Kim Vladu

              As I stated earlier, I am not here to appease you so I could care less about your dislikes. If you were born and raised here, act like it. Otherwise, go to your ISIS loving motherland. Not interested in how many languages you speak, just respect the nation in which you live is my only concern. Dumb? As dumb as your belief in a false, crazy, prophet name Mohammed. Now go away crawling.

      • Woody

        I hope the Muslims took notes on how to be a good terrorists from all these anti muslin terrorist attacks. That guy waving the flag and yelling at Kindergarteners. Brave sob terrorizing a child. Hey maybe you can grab a few of your friends and take care of the 2nd graders cutting through my yard on their bikes. Terrorizing 5 yr. olds. Texas defending us from kindergarteners since 2015. Halleluyah!!

      • Gershom

        If Muslim Radicals would stop trying to shoot up peaceful anti-Muslim events and rallies, which is covered by FREE SPEECH and FREE Association, then perhaps there would not be such an ugly backlash against them? Sure, I want peace but the other side needs to set aside militant behavior first before they can be trusted. As for the protesters: Let them peacefully protest, perhaps someday the Muslims will learn how to peacefully protest as well.

        • Drew L

          Have there been a recent rash of Muslim Radicals shooting up peaceful anti-Muslim events? I must have missed them.

          • MOHAMADSLAYER

            DREW,,, wake up dude, go read in quran where it says for all muslims to kill the non muslim for a god,,, DREWWWWWWW,,,,,, wake up

            • Drew L

              So the answer is, “No there hasn’t, but read the Koran!”

              So we have no “Radical Muslims shooting up peaceful anti-Muslim events”, which was the point that was being made. That’s like saying we have to stop those crocodiles from eating all our children, even though it’s not happening anywhere. Great logic fail.

          Well you idiot this has nothing to do with Islam. The school is just teaching the kids a different language just like when they teach you spanish, french, or german.

          • Sam Banter

            Hey zumbur, you are very ignorant of the American freedoms. Many people in America do not support bi-lingual education in any language. That is their freedom to do so. Using a differing opinion obviously is a threat to you. Sorry zumbur, but Americans have the right to disagree with you, and you have the indecency to call Americans “idiots” or stupid if they have a differing opinion. We are not all clones of the muslims, and we do not need to be. This is America, with freedom of speech, and freedom of differing opinions. You show the typical muslim mentality, by using insults and name-calling, rather than logic, reasoning, and evidence. You miss the main point, too, as the protesters see that the hidden agenda for teaching arabic, is to promote islam and sharia laws.

              Just like you said people spoke Arabic before Islam right? So what does that mean idiot?!? That speaking Arabic or learning to speak it has nothing to do with Islam. You just proved the point I was trying to tell you in your own comment. Now please before you regal us with your beautiful poetic comments, please use your brain.

          Gershom, agreed, but the events you’re speaking about are anti-jihad vs anti-Muslim. Unless moderate is a few rounds & extra clip away from radical (like Zumbur below) .. there’s a difference

          • Justin Brown

            Jihad means to struggle or persevere for God. Every Muslim is obligated to do this, just like almost every religion. A minority of the crazy Muslims (like ISIS) distort religion, just like the Christian Crusades, or the more recent Kony movement, among others. We must unite if we’re to have a chance at fighting the greed that cripples our planet

        • Sam Banter

          The protesters at the elementary school WERE peaceful, and the muslim hysterical radicals were exaggerating, as usual. The towel heads have already have been allowed their protests in Houston, Dearborn, North Carolina, Minneapolis, etc. When American non-muslims protest, the muslimes object, as they do not believe in freedom of speech, religion, the press, or assembly. If they dont like it, the can immigrate to the middle east, or north africa.

        “The population at the Arabic school is about 30 percent Hispanic, 30 percent white, and 30 percent African American”

        Personally, I’d be more concerned about sending my kids to a school that’s 60% black and Hispanic, than I’d be about them learning Arabic. Then of course, I am a bit of a bigot.

        • Kim Vladu

          Then send your kids over to Syria.

      • Jeff Green

        Ahahaha This did nothing to spoil the kids first day of school you moron.

        • Sakura

          Yes it did, you selfish moron. Little kids do NOT NEED immature and MEAN big grow ups yelling at them for going to kindergarten or pre-school, just because they happen to go to an Arabic immersion school. How would YOU like to be a tiny 5 year old or younger, and see big tall grow ups yelling at you for being Muslim or whatever else, when you arrive for your first big day of school?? That is SCARY for a little kid. And, that is a horrible way to begin your first years of school. It’s just hateful mean so-called “Americans” showing how hateful and mean they can be to little kids who are totally unable to defend themselves. These stupid “adults” knew those little kids can’t yell back and get back at those horrible people. That is why they picked on them. You DO NOT EVER EVER show up at a school for children and hold a hate filled protest in their faces like that. NOT EVER. Don’t call yourself a good person or Christian, Jew, etc if this seems like it is a good idea and ok to you. Only a twisted mind would even THINK this was a good idea and ok. Children aren’t stupid. They know when people are being mean and hateful. And, at such a young age, they will not understand why they are being hated so much. All they know, is that people are yelling at them and it’s very scary. It is not ok to hate anyone for being Muslim. People are so dumb that they forget that this is NOT the Middle East. Geez… Go live in the Middle East if you want to have a hate protest. That is where your protest belongs. Protest against the REAL terrorists. Don’t bully people who have nothing to do with the idiots calling themselves Muslim in the Middle East. If you want to do something to get a reaction and to get noticed for your big mouth, that is where you need to be. Go there, and protest the people who are doing the REAL damage to innocent Muslims and Christians over in the Middle East, if you must protest. Don’t do that HERE. Too scared?? Thought so. That’s why you all are bullying American Muslims. They are easy targets who won’t fight back and kill you, and you all know it. You all are too danged CHICKEN to go to the Middle East and protest there!!! You know that ISIS and other such groups would go after you for your big mouths. Don’t complain about Muslims “not speaking up” about the bad fake “Muslims” terrorizing everyone they can get their hands on in the Middle East. YOU all are NOT SPEAKING UP either, where it counts. That is because you are just too chicken to do it. Protesting here is NOT HELPING. It is only just antagonizing people you want on your side, and who are on your side, whether or not you are smart enough to know it. Protesting against non-terrorist people in the US isn’t going to stop ISIS and other terorist groups. Trust me, you need to go to the Middle East and protest THERE to get what you want, done. The real terrorist groups should be your target, and nothing else. Targeting innocent kids and their families and protesting them, is just petty and wrong, and you all are just acting like bullies just because you know you can get away with it because really, you all know they aren’t a threat, and so you feel you can attack them without any problem. I dare all you pathetic idiot protesters to go to the Middle East and try that there, where it matters. If you don’t want to, I call pansy chicken@!*^ loser behavior!!! You all just think it’s much easier to bully little kids and their parents, because it’s “safe” to do so.

          And, there is nothing wrong with an Arabic or other language immersion school. They are teaching LANGUAGE and not religion. An intelligent person knows the difference between a language immersion school and a religious private school. It seems that most people in this comment section are just too uneducated and stupid to know the difference between the two. And, so what if it happened to be a religious private school? NOT YOUR BUSINESS. Religion cannot be taught in a public school and unless you are an out of touch idiot or a person who is NOT a US citizen, you and everybody else who IS a legal US citizen should KNOW already, that that is not allowed in this country. Language immersion schools are public schools. There are also private language immersion schools, but those are not the same as the kind of school one gets a regular school education at. They are only for learning the target language and nothing else. All time is spent studying the language.

          Get a grip on reality and stop acting like mean and nasty bullies and attacking innocent kids and parents and take your fight to the Middle East where it belongs. I am so sick of people holding useless protests here. This is NOT the Middle East!!! The problem is IN the Middle East!!! Go THERE if you must do something to protest.

          • Kim Vladu

            Sakura, you sound foolish. They never once yelled at the children and you know this quite well. Enough said.

          • Jeff Green

            This hardly constitutes a protest. I heard ONE guy talking (not shouting at little kids). The microphone was right next to him. You need to relax and look at things objectively. You are an emotional basket-case. Those kids, once inside couldn’t have cared less about those people and probably were more confused than scared when they were walking by them. You went on an entire diatribe espousing how horrible it was, what was it that he said? Children should not be forced to learn Arabic, it should be an elective one chooses to take. WOAH! That is awful! Shame on him. lol

      • Tony Rado

        I’m a former Muslim. Extremist Islam and radical Muslims surely mean harm to the West and intend to destroy the world or take over and force everyone to be a Muslim, God forbids. Having said that, there is no harm in learning the language of Islam. Arabic predates Islam. Arabic in itself is a beautiful language. Arabic is spoken by millions of Christians and Jews in the Middle East and beyond. What needs to be stopped is Islam and extremist Muslims. There is no place for Islam in the civilized world. There is a great book titled The Unknown History of Islam that outlines all the dangers of Islam to Western civilization.

        • ska_tango

          Well said.

        • Tony, this could be said about any group of people including Christians, and broken down even further like the Catholics and Protestants in Ireland. There are radicals in almost everything humans get involved in. It is NOT just a Islamic thing.

        • Kim Vladu

          Thanks for the info Tony, however it is not necessary for American children to spend HALF THEIR DAY in classes taught in Arabic. When I took Spanish classes, I also learned about the Spanish culture. Hence, these kids will spend half their day learning the Arabic culture as well. But why should they? They are Americans not Arabic. You state clearly that Muslims intend to take over and force Muslim beliefs, why open the door to it?

      • Albaniann

        Racism
        is one of the severe diseases of human society in this age. Everyone remembers
        how black Africans were transported across the oceans, packed in specially
        designed ships, thought of and treated like livestock. They were made slaves,
        forced to change their names and religion and language, were not entitled to
        hope for true freedom, and were refused the least of human rights. Because
        among some Western people the attitude to non-Westerners has unfortunately
        changed little in modern times, the political and social condition of black
        people often remains, even where they live amid the native Westerners as
        theoretically equal fellow-citizens, that of despised inferiors.

        When Allah’s (SWT) Messenger, upon him be peace
        and blessings, was raised as a Prophet, the same kind of racism, under the name
        of tribalism, was prevalent in Makkah. The Quraish considered themselves in
        particular, and Arabs in general, superior to all the other peoples of the
        world. Allah’s (SWT) Messenger came with the Divine Message and proclaimed that
        no Arab is superior over a non-Arab, and no white is superior over black and
        superiority is by righteousness and God-fearing alone (Surat Al-Hujurat,
        49:13). He also declared that even if an Abyssinian Black Muslim were to rule
        over Muslims, he should be obeyed.

        Allah’s (SWT) Messenger eradicated the problem
        of racial or color discrimination so successfully that superiority is not by
        birth or color or blood, but by God-fearing and righteousness.

        The message of Islam is for the entire human
        race. According to Islam, Allah (SWT) is the God of the entire world and the Prophet
        Muhammad (saw) is a messenger for the whole of mankind. Islam unites the entire
        human race under one banner without any kind of discrimination.

        Allah (SWT) says in Surat Al-Hujurat, “O
        Mankind! We have created you from a male and female, and made you into nations
        and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honorable of you in
        the sight of Allah is he who has most Taqwa among of you. Verily, Allah is
        All-Knowing, All-Aware.” Noble Qur’an (49:13)

        In surah Al-Room Allah (SWT) says, “And one
        of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of
        your tongues and colors; most surely there are signs in this for the
        learned.” Noble Qur’an (30:22)

        With this verse, Islam declares equality among
        people as one human race, one humanity, that is because Islam respect a human
        for being a human not for any other reason; Islam does not distinguish between
        two races, or two groups of people, or between two colors, and the Prophet Muhammad (saw) addressed
        the people signifying that concept during the last Hajj pilgrimage, saying: “O People!
        Your God is one; your father is one; no preference of an Arab neither over non-Arab
        nor of a non-Arab over an Arab or red over black or black over red except for
        the most righteous. Verily the most honored of you is the most righteous.”

      • nuur12345

        Arabic is the 5th most spoken language worldwide and the liturgical language of 1.6 billion people. But some self-righteous bigots see no use in learning it, LOLOLOL!

        • Kim Vladu

          nuur12345, it’s one thing to take a course in the Arabic language, it’s another thing to send children to school to spend HALF THEIR DAY in classes taught in Arabic.

          • nuur12345

            In my long experience, this is the only way of really mastering a language – you speak it, you use it, you emerge yourself in it until you even start dreaming in it. Then and only then are you bi-lingual. Just look at the foreign language abilities of American students, they think when they say Ola they know Spanish.

      • nuur12345

        First, it is wrong to say 20% of Muslims speak Arabic, because almost all non-Arabic speaking Muslims study the language at least to read and/or recite in it regularly; another big part studies it’s reading and understanding to different degrees. So even if they do not speak it at home, it is a language they are connected to.

        Secondly, what kind of people protest outside A SCHOOL for kindergarten/elementary grade. This should not even have gotten a permission as this is highly intimidating to little children to be greeted by some -obviously not very educate and under informed- mob (visible by the platitudes on their posters) outside the very place they are supposed to like and feel safe in during the rest of the school year. What moron gave the permission to such a thing?!

        Thirdly, what’s the problem?! Children who are being immersed into a widely spoken language? Who gain additional skills? Who grow up bi-lingual or even more than that?! So knowledge is a problem to this folks?
        Or is it only the knowledge their bigot minds can take as an occasion to spread their hate&fear propaganda and make themselves believe in an even more extended version of their self-righteousness?!

        When one has to sink so low that one has to stand in front of innocent children from all walks of life and scare them on their first day of school with some totally inappropriate nonsense, maybe at that point, it’s a good time to reexamine how extremist one’s bigotry has become.

          Statistically spoken, the US has been involved in an armed conflict in average every other year since its founding – tendency increasing…
          In short no nation has gone to war as often as them.
          No nation has bases all over the world like them and aircraft carriers in front of almost every nation.
          Bully methodology, through and through…

      • honestynow

        Apparently arabic is the 2nd most spoken foreign language spoken in Houston. Odd, no? Did you know Houston also has a US-Arab Chamber of Commerce? Did you know that Qatar (Qatar Foundation Int’l which is associated with Muslim Brotherhood) is funding this language/cultural immersion program? Hmmmmm…….

        • pingpongling

          thank the muslims from africa – many refugees coming in millions to usa canada europe who speak arabic….more are coming syrians iraqis are coming….

        • Robert Munro

          Why shouldn’t Arabic be spoken in Houston. A dead language is spoken in Palestine. Houston is the center of the US oil industry. The Salafist and Wahhabi states (Saudi Arabia, UAE, etc) are all about oil.

              I agree with this 100%.

              • Andrew J. Cohen

                Israel has always been a Jewish state even before it was officially recognized and way before the rise of Islam.

          • Andrew J. Cohen

            Actually, that is Israel not Palestine. Let us get that straight. They speak Hebrew. This is a Jewish state where the main language is English. In America, we speak English that is why!!!!

            • Robert Munro

              Most of the clowns of “Israel” seem better at Russian or English than they are at that corpse of a language.

              And, a beanie-baby has absolutely no place going all “American” on someone whose ancestors came in 1607. Your cult is homeless, just as your own Torah states. It’s nothing but Rothschild’s thugs that have stolen Palestine who vomit the drivel about “Israel” – stolen by fraud and the corruption of a British civil servant.

              Voltaire best described you creatures………………..

              “You will only find in the Jews an ignorant and barbarous people, who for a long time have joined the most sordid avarice to the most detestable superstition and to the most invincible hatred of all peoples which tolerate and enrich them.”

      • Mark Wan

        Christians (and Jews et al) in the Noble Qur’an (just a few) :

        “Surely those who believe, and those who are Jews, and the
        Christians, and the Sabians — whoever believes in God and the Last Day
        and does good, they shall have their reward from their Lord. And there
        will be no fear for them, nor shall they grieve” (2:62, 5:69, and many
        other verses).

        “Nearest in enmity to believers will thy find the Jews and Pagans

        and nearest among them in love to the believers
        will you find those who say, ‘We are Christians,’ because amongst these
        are men devoted to learning and men who have renounced the world, and
        they are not arrogant” (5:82).

        “O you who believe! Be helpers of
        God — as Jesus the son of Mary said to the Disciples, ‘Who will be my
        helpers in (the work of) God?’ Said the disciples, ‘We are God’s
        helpers!’ Then a portion of the Children of Israel believed, and a
        portion disbelieved. But We gave power to those who believed, against
        their enemies, and they became the ones that prevailed” (61:14).

        Jewish Talmud:

        To communicate anything to a Goy about our religious
        relations would be equal to the killing of all Jews, for if the Goyim knew
        what we teach about them, they would kill us openly.

        Libbre David 37

        A Jew should and must make a false oath when the Goyim
        asks if our books contain anything against them.

        Szaaloth-Utszabot, The Book of Jore Dia 17

        When a Jew has a Gentile in his clutches, another Jew
        may go to the same Gentile, lend him money and in turn deceive him, so
        that the Gentile shall be ruined. For the property of a Gentile, according
        to our law, belongs to no one, and the first Jew that passes has full right
        to seize it.

        Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat 156

        If it can be proven that someone has given the money
        of Israelites to the Goyim, a way must be found after prudent consideration
        to wipe him off the face of the earth.

        Choschen Hamm 388, 15

        A Jew may rob a Goy, he may cheat him over a bill, which
        should not be perceived by him, otherwise the name of God would become
        dishonoured.

        Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat, 348

        Sanhedrin 57a
        [Translation: A Jew may rob a Goy, but a Goy may not
        rob a Jew. If a Goy murders another Goy or a Jew, he should be killed,
        but a Jew will not be incur the death penalty for killing a non-Jew.]

        Kill the Goyim by any means possible.

        Choshen Ha’mishpat 425:50

        Everyone who sheds the blood of the impious [non-Jews]
        is as acceptable to God as he who offers a sacrifice to God.

        Yalkut 245c

        Extermination of the Christians is a necessary sacrifice.

        Zohar, Shemoth

        Tob shebbe goyyim harog – Even the best of the Goyim
        (Gentiles) should be killed.

        Oy Vey. And the Christian Evangelicals are the pawns of their zionist masters, the synagogue of satan indeed. When it’s time to meet our Maker, the haters will burn…and then some….for eternity……ahhhhh, JUSTICE!

        • Stanley

          You have to quit reading the Hate sites as they will infect your brain. Remember that the rabbis in the talmud were interpreting the torah word for word and therefore what each word meant. So any talmud interpretation would have to have the part of the torah that they were referring to.

          Here is on correct translation (Sanhedrin 57a):

          The Torah states unequivocally that ALL men were created in the image of God (Genesis chapter 1). In fact, the Talmud emphasizes that Adam was created from the dust of all four corners of the earth (so to speak), so that no one nation could claim superiority. And of course, it is forbidden for a Jew to kill a Gentile. (source: Talmud Sanhedrin 57a; “Taz” Y.D. 158:1).

          • Robert Munro

            You’re lying, hasbara-boy. THIS is Judaism…………………

            (the passages below are taken from the Talmud on the Jewish Virtual Library web site – this is a Jewish site)

            Sanhedrin 58b. “If a heathen (Gentile) hits a Jew, the Gentile must be killed. Hitting a Jew is the same as hitting God.” (this is the most hilarious passage in the Jews’ obscene books)

            Sanhedrin 57a . “A Jew need not pay a Gentile the wages owed him for work.”

            Baba Kamma 37b. “If an ox of an Israelite gores an ox of a Canaanite there is no liability; but if an ox of a Canaanite gores an ox of an Israelite…the payment is to be in full.”

            Sanhedrin 57a . “When a Jew murders a Gentile, there will be no death penalty. What a Jew steals from a Gentile he may keep.”

            Baba Kamma 37b. “Gentiles are outside the protection of the law and God has exposed their money to Israel.”

            “Jews are human beings, but the nations of the world are not human beings but beasts…” -Saba Mecia 114, 6

            “To communicate anything with a Goy about our relations would be equal to the killing of all Jews, for if the Goyim knew what we teach about them, they would kill us openly.” (found in both Jewish Torah and Talmud)

            Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburg, head of the Kever Yossev Yeshiva (school of Talmud) in Nablus
            stated:
            “The blood of the Jewish people is loved by the Lord; it is therefore redder and their life is preferable.”
            “The killing, by a Jew of a non-Jew, is considered essentially a good deed, and Jews should therefore have no compunction about it.”
            “If a Jew needs a liver, can you take the liver of an innocent non-Jew passing by to save him? The Torah would probably permit that. Jewish life has an infinite value. There is something infinitely more holy and unique about Jewish life than non-Jewish life.” (Since Israeli doctors have been caught harvesting organs from Palestinians, one wonders just how many stolen organs in America came from murdered Palestinians)

            Ovadia Yosef, late Chief Rabbi of Israel and “spiritual” leader/advisor to various Israeli Prime Ministers, including Netanyahu (2001 & repeated in 2010, both “sermons” on YouTube):

            “Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel.”

                    WASHINGTON POST

                    Friday, January 3, 2003; Page A18

                    THERE HAS BEEN a lull recently in Palestinian attacks against Israelis; a shooting attack that killed four in a West Bank settlement last week was the first major incident in a month. But almost every day, Palestinian civilians, including many children, are being killed by the Israeli army and police. An 18-year-old high school student named Amran Abu Hamediye was found beaten to death in the West Bank town of Hebron on Monday; family and neighbors say he had been detained by Israeli forces a few minutes before. On Sunday, an 11-year-old boy was shot and killed by troops in the town of Tulkarm. The day before, a 9-year-old girl was killed as she played outside her home in the Gaza Strip. At least four other Palestinian children under the age of 16 were killed by Israeli fire in Gaza during the past month. In one case, an 11-year-old girl was shot in the chest and killed as she leaned out her bedroom window to watch the funeral of a teenage boy who had been gunned down the previous day.

                    …Investigations are invariably said to be underway — but rarely are results reported. According to the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem, only one Israeli soldier has been convicted of brutality since the latest Palestinian uprising began 15 months ago….

                    …Israeli paramilitary forces have reportedly been operating something they call “the lottery,” in which they detain Palestinians and order them to choose from pieces of paper labeled with punishments such as “broken leg” and “smashed head.” The practice was reported by an Israeli newspaper on Dec. 22, more than a week before Amran Abu Hamediye was beaten to death. But Israeli authorities as yet have taken no action in response to the reports….”

                    National Post,
                    Israel forced to confront Jewish extremism after arson attack on Palestinian home:

                    …a radical fringe of young ultra-Orthodox Israelis is increasingly turning to violence in the name of religion. (no real surprise here as this has been done by settlers for decades, but we will pretend to be astonished for the sake of the flow of the article).

                    The killers of 18-month-old Ali Saad Dawabsheh left Hebrew graffiti reading “Revenge” and “Long live the Messiah King” on the victims’ house alongside a Star of David”….

                    …Observers say the wellspring of the latest wave of Jewish extremism is the settlements, populated by ultra-Orthodox Jews who believe they are fulfilling God’s command….( they are useful tools for the state and easy to manipulate into this thinking of ‘superiority’ and self-righteousness, because it translates into real estate and tangible possessions for them – basically feeding their greed while religion is offering the justification to feel good while doing it).

                    They tend to be young men who have adopted a counter-cultural lifestyle. (They are actually fully in line with Zionist culture). They have swallowed whole the teaching of radical rabbis that the Israeli government is invalid because it is not following religious ideas, but they ignore the same rabbis’ proscription of violence. (So Israel is growing its own ISIS??!!)

                    Their attitude is, “The land belongs to us and to nobody else,” Fischer said, and they interpret religion to justify violence. They see society as sinful and the government as weak, making concessions to foreign powers and permitting idolatry in the form of Christian churches.

                    “This is part of a theology that says that, insofar as my reaction is spontaneous and pure for the sake of heaven, it’s really God moving me,” he said.

                    The deadly arson followed a long string of what have become known as “price tag” attacks against Arabs and Christians. They were mostly crimes against property, accompanied by racist slogans, in response to a perceived offence. For example, last November, arsonists torched a Hebrew-Arabic bilingual school in Jerusalem, spray-painting the slogan, “There’s no coexisting with cancer.” Extremists, who consider Christianity a form of idolatry that has no place on Israeli soil, have also targeted prominent churches. The perpetrators often spray the word “price tag,” a message that they are exacting a price, both from the targets and from the government.”

                    So they claim it’s from the extremes of their society, a Zionist ISIS style terrorism, but this is a lie, because their own politicians are encouraging these kind of behavior, maybe even ordering it – who knows?!

                    “Former Israeli lawmaker and Justice minister, Ayelet Shaked, published on Facebook a call for genocide of the Palestinians.

                    It is a call for genocide because it declares that “the entire Palestinian people is the enemy” and justifies its destruction, “including its elderly and its women, its cities and its villages, its property and its infrastructure.”

                    It is a call for genocide because it calls for the slaughter of Palestinian mothers who give birth to “little snakes.”

                    If Shaked’s post does not meet the legal definition of a call for genocide then nothing does.

                    Shaked is a senior figure in the Habeyit Hayehudi (Jewish Home) party that is part of Israel’s ruling coalition.”

                    And she is not alone:

                    “Yitzhak Shapira, a rabbi who lives in the Israeli-occupied West Bank settlement of Yitzhar and who heads the Od Yosef Chai Yeshiva organization, published a book in 2009 entitled “The King’s Torah” in which he wrote that “there is justification for killing babies if it is clear that they will grow up to harm us, and in such a situation they may be harmed deliberately, and not only during combat with adults”. He was questioned for his statements but released within a few hours after protest by supporters and members of parliament.

                    Shapira was outdone by Ovadia Yosef, the leader of the Ultra-Orthodox Shas party, who has made such statements as “Goyim (non-Jews) were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel”, “the six million Holocaust victims were reincarnations of the souls of sinners” as well as calling Arabs and Muslims words such as “snakes”, “evildoers” and “stupid’. On Arabs in general, Yosef was quoted as saying that the IDF must “send missiles to annihilate them”. ” (Globalvoicesonline.org)

                    I could go on and on with examples of your sick supremacy ideology and self-rigtous entitlement culture which was developed to make you believe that when crimes are committed by Jews they miraculously become virtues. It is a disgusting cult of blood and greed which mercilessly takes and destroys AND lies about it when called to account. There are masses of examples out there how selective language and insertions are used to display the true events in a light that always defends the Israeli position. It is a dishonest and unethical code of injustice and deception that nauseates any human being with a minimum of sense of justice.

                          Referring to FGM, i will disappoint you too. It is not an islamic thing, or do you see that practiced in Saudi Arabia?! No, it is an African thing, pre-Islamic and condemned by Islam. It is practiced by Christians and Animalists in Kenya, Egypt, Sudan…alike.

                          The official position of Al-Azhar is:

                          “The practice must be stopped in support of one of the highest values of Islam, namely to do no harm to another – in accordance with the commandment of the Prophet Mohammed “Accept no harm and do no harm to another.” This is echoed by many other Islamic scholars who have released Fatwas against FGM.

                          Now that you so clearly expressed that you are leading a discussion only ‘to win it’ and not for the sake of truth, you should feel double embarrassed. Sophists have never contributed anything to the truth, only to the sneakiness and randomness of discussions.

                          What point here do you not understand??!!!

                          You are the moron, obviously and let me tell you why:

                          MAhmoud Asgari was never convicted in an official court; he was the victim of a lynch law by a group of people that have nothing to do with Islamic jurisprudence or the Iranian legal system. It’s like taking the act of a criminal in your country and claiming they followed to law.

                          In other reports both Mahmoud Asgari and Ayaz Marhoni are accused of having gang raped (with four more members) a 13 year old boy at gun point and a lengthy interview with the father of the boy is posted online. This was reported by New York Times and The Times of London.

                          As of July 2015, the Gay Star News confirmed that they were unable to verify the report Tahiri’s Tweet (which mentioned the incident first). “We were unable to find a press account of what happened in the Farsi press. And we should note Iranian LGBTI networks have not confirmed the story.” Some critics have questioned Taheri’s reliability altogether.

                          It is telling that you have to resort to a shaky story like that to bring even one example.

                          In the United States, out of the almost 6,000 hate crimes committed in 2013, 20 percent (approximately 1,200) were based on victims’ sexual orientation, according to the FBI. But when something like that happens to happen in Iran it’s because of Islam?!! Go and get a reality check!!!

                        • nuur12345

                          Honor killings have NOTHING to do with ISLAM neither. Or you go and show me were they are sanctioned in the scriptures!

                          Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and an Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, states,

                          “There is NO SUCH CONCEPT in Islam that is called “honor killing”. Islam holds every soul in high esteem and does not allow any transgression upon it. It does NOT ALLOW people to take the law in their own hands and administer justice, because doing so will be leading to chaos and lawlessness. Therefore, based on this, Islam does not permit such killings.”

                          And generally spoken, which refers to your other silly claim of gay execution:

                          “First of all, in order to sanction killing, it must be through a BINDING VERDICT issued by an AUTHORITATIVE LAW COURT. INDIVIDUALS themselves have NO AUTHORITY either to judge cases or pass judgments. Therefore, a Muslim should not sanction such killing because doing so will be leading to the rule of the law of the jungle. A civilized society cannot be run by such laws.”

                          Islam brought the first system of laws and jurisdiction to your culture. Do you believe they go back and run around there handing out punishments without a court procedure now, like they used to do in the Wild West?! Where do you get your knowledge from or do you purposely ignore it?! So when you find someone who has been ‘convicted’ according to an Islamic court procedure, talk again. Because those cases you are mentioning are not within this system, they are random people committing crimes outside the Islamic law, just like the ones who aggress LGBTs elsewhere.

                          Stop posting your total nonsense! It must be very satisfying for some to roll around in their ignorant hate&fear smear day and night!

                          For your general knowledge, taqiyyah/kitman refers to denying your religious affiliation under death threat – which cannot be applied in our case here. Or are you threatening me in any way???!

                          All others are called lying and because you know how lame ii is after being proven wrong to accuse the other of lying you are trying to hide behind ‘fancy’ words. even more pathetic.

                          LGBT rights in Iran have come in conflict with the penal code since the 1930s.[1] Homosexuality is a crime punishable by imprisonment,[2] corporal punishment, and often execution. Gay men have faced stricter enforcement actions under the law than lesbians.[3]
                          Iran insists that it does not execute people for homosexuality, and
                          that gay people who have been executed have either committed rape,
                          murder, or drug trafficking.[4] However, there were many notable cases where innocent homosexuals were executed, e.g. the execution of Mahmoud Asgari and Ayaz Marhoni.

                          1. Your quote: “Iran insists that it does not execute people for homosexuality,”
                          Thank you!!!

                          2. AGAIN: Asgari and Marhoni were not executed following a trial, it was lynch law and an extrajudicial killing!!! Are you that slow or what?!
                          They were killed by a mob that took law into its own hands. Also, you keep ignoring that many details on this case are unknown, maybe because they are under investigation, the local LGBT organizations did not even confirm the story so far and doubted the reliability of the source. But if we suppose for a moment it happened the way it was reported by Taheri in a tweet, that actually proves the opposite, that the Islamic Law system in Iran does not agree with this.

                          You were unable to provide ONE example of gays being officially after due court process executed solely because of their sexual orientation.

                          You are reminding me of Bush declaring victory in the middle of the ocean while the entire world knew and now knows that his soldiers were running like rabbits and the country is in a giant mess because they failed to gain control over it.

                          Correction: It seems form controversial sources that these teens might have been convicted 10 years ago by the local court. Their charge for which they were executed was the raping a 13 year old boy – in Iran they are not under the exception of being juveniles (if this applied as sources differ here too). The entire case is trenched in contradictions and opinions, there is no reliable source for the events. Most sites work with emotionally charged pictures but little information and facts and actually ask people to contact them to inform them of the events. Gay sites want them to have been executed for being gay, but the official voice and a video of the father of the rape victim say otherwise.

                          As this was the only example you could come up with I am far from being convinced and the difficulty you have to hold up this case is telling. In the same token i could argue that your society executes more black perpetrators than whites or similar charges, and I most certainly would be able to dig out more examples and facts with reliable sources than you did here.

                          You are turning in circles. All the cases i am looking at here had other charges like robbery, kidnapping, rape….

                          Truth is that in Iran nobody has been convicted and executed on charges of orientation of sexuality alone, maybe it was part of the charges, but the accused committed other crimes. Nobody has interest going after people with confused sexual orientations as long as they do not harm the society.

                          Your bigotry is ridiculous when at the same time the Western world has one of the highest rates of anti-LGBT violence:

                          In Canada in 2008, police-reported data found that approximately 10% of all hate crimes in the country were motivated by sexual orientation. Of these, 56% were of a violent nature. In comparison, 38% of all racially motivated offenses were of a violent nature.[33]
                          In the same year in the United States, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation data, though 4,704 crimes were committed due to racial bias and 1,617 were committed due to sexual orientation, only one murder and one forcible rape were committed due to racial bias, whereas five murders and six rapes were committed based on sexual orientation.[34] In Northern Ireland in 2008, 160 homophobic incidents and 7 transphobic incidents were reported. Of those incidents, 68.4% were violent crimes; significantly higher than for any other bias category. By contrast, 37.4% of racially motivated crimes were of a violent nature.

                          Another thing you like to forget is that the Islamic majority countries are not the only ones with legislation against LGBT populations. Jamaica, Trinidad, Tobago, Antigua, Barbuda, Papua…..are other examples. So you are assuming that the entire world agrees with your approach on the LGBT perspective while in reality this is not the case – not even within your own population.

        • ABLE TABLE

          (I)

          True
          Determination of the real age of Aisha (R.A)

          “A
          great misconception prevails as to the age at which Aisha was taken in marriage
          by the Prophet. Ibn Sa‘d has stated in the Tabaqat that when Abu Bakr [father
          of Aisha] was approached on behalf of the Holy Prophet, he replied that the
          girl had already been betrothed to Jubair, and that he would have to settle the
          matter first with him. This shows that Aisha must have been approaching maturity
          at the time. Again, the Isaba, speaking of the Prophet’s daughter Fatima, says
          that she was born five years before the Call (Call to the faithful to join
          Islam) and was about five years older than Aisha. This shows that Aisha must
          have been about ten years at the time of her betrothal to the Prophet, and not
          six years as she is generally supposed to be. This is further borne out by the
          fact that Aisha herself is reported to have stated that when the chapter [of
          the Holy Quran] entitled The Moon, the fifty-fourth chapter, was revealed, she
          was a girl playing about and remembered certain verses then revealed. Now the
          fifty-fourth chapter was undoubtedly revealed before the sixth year of the
          Call. All these considerations point to but one conclusion, viz., that Aisha could
          not have been less than ten years of age at the time of her nikah, which was
          virtually only a betrothal. And there is one report in the Tabaqat that Aisha
          was nine years of age at the time of nikah. Again it is a fact admitted on all
          hands that the nikah of Aisha took place in the tenth year of the Call in the
          month of Shawwal, while there is also preponderance of evidence as to the
          consummation of her marriage taking place in the second year of Hijra in the
          same month, which shows that full five years had elapsed between the nikah and
          the consummation. Hence there is not the least doubt that Aisha was at least
          nine or ten years of age at the time of betrothal, and fourteen or fifteen
          years at the time of marriage.”[4] (Bolding is mine.)

          To
          facilitate understanding dates of these events, please note that it was in the
          tenth year of the Call, i.e. the tenth year after the Holy Prophet Muhammad
          received his calling from Allah to his mission of prophethood, that his wife
          Khadija passed away, and the approach was made to Abu Bakr for the hand of his
          daughter Aisha. The hijra or emigration of the Holy Prophet to Madina took
          place three years later, and Aisha came to the household of the Holy Prophet in
          the second year after hijra. So if Aisha was born in the year of the Call, she
          would be ten years old at the time of the nikah and fifteen years old at the
          time of the consummation of the marriage.

          Later
          research

          Research
          subsequent to the time of Maulana Muhammad Ali has shown that she was older
          than this. An excellent short work presenting such evidence is the Urdu
          pamphlet Rukhsati kai waqt Sayyida Aisha Siddiqa ki umar (‘The age of Lady
          Aisha at the time of the start of her married life’) by Abu Tahir Irfani.[4a]
          Points 1 to 3 below have been brought to light in this pamphlet.

          1. The
          famous classical historian of Islam, Ibn Jarir Tabari, wrote in his ‘History’:

          “In the
          time before Islam, Abu Bakr married two women. The first was Fatila daughter of
          Abdul Uzza, from whom Abdullah and Asma were born. Then he married Umm Ruman,
          from whom Abdur Rahman and Aisha were born. These four were born before Islam.”
          [5]

          Being
          born before Islam means being born before the Call.

          2. The
          compiler of the famous Hadith collection Mishkat al-Masabih, Imam Wali-ud-Din
          Muhammad ibn Abdullah Al-Khatib, who died 700 years ago, has also written brief
          biographical notes on the narrators of Hadith reports. He writes under Asma,
          the older daughter of Abu Bakr:

          “She
          was the sister of Aisha Siddiqa, wife of the Holy Prophet, and was ten years
          older than her. … In 73 A.H. … Asma died at the age of one hundred years.” [6]

          (Go
          here to see an image of the full entry in Urdu.)

          This
          would make Asma 28 years of age in 1 A.H., the year of the Hijra, thus making
          Aisha 18 years old in 1 A.H. So Aisha would be 19 years old at the time of the
          consummation of her marriage, and 14 or 15 years old at the time of her nikah.
          It would place her year of birth at four or five years before the Call.

          3. The
          same statement is made by the famous classical commentator of the Holy Quran,
          Ibn Kathir, in his book Al-bidayya wal-nihaya:

          “Asma
          died in 73 A.H. at the age of one hundred years. She was ten years older than
          her sister Aisha.” [7]

          Apart
          from these three evidences, which are presented in the Urdu pamphlet referred
          to above, we also note that the birth of Aisha being a little before the Call
          is consistent with the opening words of a statement by her which is recorded
          four times in Bukhari. Those words are as follows:

          “Ever
          since I can remember (or understand things) my parents were following the
          religion of Islam.” [8]

          This is
          tantamount to saying that she was born sometime before her parents accepted
          Islam but she can only remember them practising Islam. No doubt she and her
          parents knew well whether she was born before or after they accepted Islam, as
          their acceptance of Islam was such a landmark event in their life which took
          place just after the Holy Prophet received his mission from God. If she had
          been born after they accepted Islam it would make no sense for her to say that
          she always remembered them as following Islam. Only if she was born before they
          accepted Islam, would it make sense for her to say that she can only remember
          them being Muslims, as she was too young to remember things before their
          conversion. This is consistent with her being born before the Call, and being
          perhaps four or five years old at the time of the Call, which was also almost
          the time when her parents accepted Islam.

          Two
          further evidences cited by Maulana Muhammad Ali

          In the
          footnotes of his Urdu translation and commentary of Sahih Bukhari, entitled
          Fadl-ul-Bari, Maulana Muhammad Ali had pointed out reports of two events which
          show that Aisha could not have been born later than the year of the Call. These
          are as follows.

          1. The
          above mentioned statement by Aisha in Bukhari, about her earliest memory of her
          parents being that they were followers of Islam, begins with the following
          words in its version in Bukhari’s Kitab-ul-Kafalat. We quote this from the
          English translation of Bukhari by M. Muhsin Khan:

          “Since
          I reached the age when I could remember things, I have seen my parents
          worshipping according to the right faith of Islam. Not a single day passed but
          Allah’s Apostle visited us both in the morning and in the evening. When the
          Muslims were persecuted, Abu Bakr set out for Ethiopia as an emigrant.” [9]

          Commenting
          on this report, Maulana Muhammad Ali writes:

          “This
          report sheds some light on the question of the age of Aisha. … The mention of
          the persecution of Muslims along with the emigration to Ethiopia clearly shows
          that this refers to the fifth or the sixth year of the Call. … At that time
          Aisha was of an age to discern things, and so her birth could not have been
          later than the first year of the Call.” [10]

          Again,
          this would make her more than fourteen at the time of the consummation of her
          marriage.

          2.
          There is a report in Sahih Bukhari as follows:

          “On the
          day (of the battle) of Uhud when (some) people retreated and left the Prophet,
          I saw Aisha daughter of Abu Bakr and Umm Sulaim, with their robes tucked up so
          that the bangles around their ankles were visible hurrying with their water
          skins (in another narration it is said, ‘carrying the water skins on their
          backs’). Then they would pour the water in the mouths of the people, and return
          to fill the water skins again and came back again to pour water in the mouths
          of the people.” [11]

          Maulana
          Muhammad Ali writes in a footnote under this report:

          “It
          should also be noted that Aisha joined the Holy Prophet’s household only one
          year before the battle of Uhud. According to the common view she would be only
          ten years of age at this time, which is certainly not a suitable age for the
          work she did on this occasion. This also shows that she was not so young at
          this time.” [12]

          If, as
          shown in the previous section above, Aisha was nineteen at the time of the
          consummation of her marriage, then she would be twenty years old at the time of
          the battle of Uhud. It may be added that on the earlier occasion of the battle
          of Badr when some Muslim youths tried, out of eagerness, to go along with the
          Muslim army to the field of battle, the Holy Prophet Muhammad sent them back on
          account of their young age (allowing only one such youngster, Umair ibn Abi
          Waqqas, to accompany his older brother the famous Companion Sa‘d ibn Abi
          Waqqas). It seems, therefore, highly unlikely that if Aisha was ten years old
          the Holy Prophet would have allowed her to accompany the army to the field of
          battle.

          We conclude from all the evidence cited
          above that Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) was nineteen years old when
          she joined the Holy Prophet as his wife in the year 2 A.H., the nikah or
          betrothal having taken place five years previously.

        muhammad had epilepsy he was poor then he married his relative khadija who was rich one day khadija realized that muhammad was not only poor but had some physical defect and became very sad muhammad also realized he had to come with a plan..so he came up with brilliant plan. he told khadija that his condition – bouts – due to epilepsy was because he was visited in dreams by angel gabriel who told him that he muhammad was messenger of god and remembering this visit in dreams he was having visions – in realty bouts from epilepsy..khadija was taken in by the con and spread the news this is how muhammad came to be messenger of allah…

        Did anyone happen to notice that the “immersion” part of this magnet school is in the Arabic LANGUAGE? Sheesh, you may as well say that the study of Latin in school is nothing but a Roman Catholic plot to destroy our Protestant Nation. And how about the US Diplomatic Service, not to mention the CIA, desperately seeking people conversant in the language? Reminds me when German was eliminated from school curriculum all across the country during the World Wars, like the language was going to nazify the innocent youth. What a load ……….

          The Zionists practice Muslim hate by terrorizing them, killing, arresting, jailing children, shooting relatives in front of their eyes, or bombing them to pieces.
          The Christians invade the Muslim countries and kill the civilian population with drones, shred them up in such ways that there isn’t even a burial possible. And you are worried about beheadings?! Get in touch with reality – the sooner the better!

              Your friend up there mentioned you and the Christians – Read!
              The Muslim countries that are messed up are messed up because of your illegal wars of aggression or because of your support for dictators that serve your interests. It’s really THAT simple.

          • Be glad its just precision targeted drone strikes. Imagine if we sent B2 bombers.
            Islam has no respect for life theirs or anyone else’s.

            • nuur12345

              So you meant to kill all these civilian – precision wise!

              “In November, Mr Ban announced that an independent board of inquiry would look into 10 incidents at schools run by the UN agency for Palestine refugees, Unrwa, between 8 July and 26 August 2014.”

              In the 50-day conflict at least 2,189 were Palestinians, including more than 1,486 civilians, died from Israeli aggressions according to the UN. On the Israeli side, 67 soldiers were killed along with six civilians.

              50 DAYS = 1500+ civilians dead!
              Precision targeting?, my foot!

                  Some education that is!

                  First some of your verses refer to punishments in hellfire. As far a sI remember the Christian and Jewish hellfire do not look like a tropical all-inclusive stay neither. But if you have other information, please feel free to share!

                  Second, lets take chapter Anfaal and Tawbah, chapter 8 and 9, which solely refer to a historical context (like all the other cherry-picked verses here).
                  These two chapters were revealed at a time when Muslims were a PERSECUTED MINORITY whose member had been oppressed and driven out of their homes; despite the persecution which included plots to KILL THE PROPHET AND COST THE LIVE OF MANY OF HIS FOLLOWERS the Muslims left their belongings behind and emigrated form their home town Mecca to Medinah. There the PERSECUTION CONTINUED.
                  This time their enemies plotted with allies against them which led to several incidents in which Muslim TEACHERS -not fighters! where SLAUGHTERED IN AMBUSH while traveling to tribes who had requested their knowledge to be taught to them.
                  This posed an inherent danger of losing the message of the revelation and also to destroy the young and small community.
                  In those verses (chapter Anfaal and Tawbah), the Muslims are told that they now -AFTER HAVING PATIENTLY ENDURED THIS TERROR for years- they are entitled to SELF-DEFENSE, with RESTRAINT against their enemies and warned to be RIGHTEOUS and to KEEP THEIR CONTRACTS to the end with those who have not betrayed them or harmed them. If you read the entire chapters, you will even learn that they are required to protect any enemy who asks for protection during the conflict and after informing him (not converting!!!) of the message of Islam to accompany him/her to safety.
                  Even the Geneva Convention does not go that far!

                  You could have found all this out easily, WOULD YOU HAVE READ THE VERSES IN THEIR CONTEXT instead of going to a hater site and paste another ignorant bumper sticker. The Quran is a revelation that came over 23 years and was adapted in its message and teachings to the situations of the moment. That’s how its verses have to be understood in order to derive principles and rules from them.

                  Even the hold-the-other-cheek Christians admit that people have a right to self-defense. So does the Quran. So stop contenting yourself with the knowledge copy/pasted form some hater sites whose employees are being paid well to post this kind of non-sense, because in the end lack of knowledge always hurts the one who is lacking it.

          And here’s Judaism………………….

          Our race is the Master Race. We Jews are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will
          lick our feet and serve us as our slaves.
          ” –
          –Speech byIsraeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin to the Knesset, –Reported by Amnon Kapeliouk, a Jewish-Israeli journalist in New Statesman Magazine, June 25, 1982 by Amnon Kapeliouk.
          (Kapeliouk was a highly respected Israeli journalist. New Statesman is the British equivalent of
          Foreign Affairs Magazine).

          Ovadia Yosef, late Chief Rabbi of Israel and “spiritual” leader/advisor to various Israeli Prime Ministers, including Netanyahu (2001 & repeated in 2010, both “sermons” are on YouTube):
          Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel.

          “Thanks to the terrible power of our International Banks, we have forced the Christians into wars without number. Wars have a special value for Jews, since Christians massacre each other and
          make more room for us Jews. Wars are the Jews’ Harvest: The Jew banks grow fat on Christian wars. Over 100-million Christians have been swept off the face of the earth by wars, and the end is not yet.”
          (Rabbi Reichorn, speaking at the funeral of Grand Rabbi Simeon Ben-Iudah, 1869)

          Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburg, head of the Kever Yossev Yeshiva (school of Talmud) in Nablus stated:
          The blood of the Jewish people is loved by the Lord; it is therefore redder and their life is preferable.”
          “The killing by a Jew of a non-Jew is considered essentially a good deed, and Jews should therefore have no compunction about it.”
          “If a Jew needs a liver, can you take the liver of an innocent non-Jew passing by to save him? The Torah would probably permit that. Jewish life has an infinite value. There is something infinitely more holy and unique about Jewish life than non-Jewish life.”

          “The Jewish people as a whole will become its own Messiah. It will attain world domination by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship.

          In this New World Order, the children of Israel will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The Governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state.

          Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which it is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands.

                      You are the true example of the kind of people who accept to getting paid to spread their hate&fear propaganda. Islamophobia is big business now and you don’t need a brain to start with them – just the ability to leave your integrity, brain, and dignity behind which I would say isn’t a problem. As you are easily hate motivated you won’t care about the damage you are causing humanity neither.
                      The true death cult comes form those who rip the bodies of civilians to shreds in a way that no proper burial is possible and they do that in the million as in Iraq – those who fight the wars of aggression, illegally against the vote of the international community, fail to win and control what they claim they won and leave the world with the mess of the backlash of their actions for more civilians to die. Iraq: 1.5 million war-related civilian deaths, Afghanistan was never counted, neither was Libya, Yemen etc………One is really left to wonder who is following a death cult when following the trail and numbers of deaths!

                • Justin Brown

                  You seem to confuse political pressure and culture for a religion. The Quran mentions nothing of punishing gays, and focuses on mostly adultery. Of course God’s old books (Jewish, Christian scriptures) on homosexuality would still apply to most Muslims. It reminds me of the Bible. Ppl seem to focus on gays more than the more serious sins, like divorce without adultery. The Muslims who can’t forgive will be judged accordingly

        Thanks to decades of mass immigration since 1965, the US is splintering along racial, ethnic, and religious lines. Multiculturalism does not work: blacks and whites in the US; Protestants and Catholics in Ireland; Sunni Muslims and Shiite Muslims; Muslims and Jews; Muslims and everyone since the religion was founded; Europeans and Jews; Christians and Muslims in the Balkans; Hutus and Tutsis in Rwanda; the list could go on forever. If the Orwellian slogan “Diversity is Strength” that we’re bombarded with all the time is actually true, where is the evidence?

        • Roger

          Peter, that’s only partially correct…

          Racial tension is due to radical Islamist, anarchist & race-baiting movements… Ireland nationalism vs unionism (not Protestant vs Catholic)… Judaism, one of the most tolerant faiths in the world (so non-applicable)… but, “Muslims and everyone since the religion was founded” is most definitely true ! :-O

        If the school promoted the integration of Arabic speaking youth to American values and English language, I believe the overwhelming compassion of Americans would show in comments. Not the case here, so criticism of American protest over just concerns… are simply ridiculous.

          Rob al-Muhammenro, I’m curious as to how this relates to the article,

          .. taught in a similar school how to better communicate with brethren jihadists .. or did you learn redundant copy/paste from an American education, while visiting on a forged visa, attending classes in aviation ?

          Seriously dude, for the sake of national security, I’d like to know if you’re homegrown or foreign

          • I’ll answer that-He’s pointing out the irony of Texas Christians/patriots attacking(verbally) American residents embracing multi-culturalism, in this case a school curriculum that includes an Arabic language course, while illustrating the plight of Christians in the Holy Land being squeezed out by the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Though keep in mind the Christians of the Holy Land are almost exclusively ethnic Palestinians, and are not subject to harassment or intimidation by Palestinian Muslims. Perhaps these protesters should direct their attention to the fact that Israel is indirectly responsible for the diminishing Christian population in the Holy Land, and that some of its citizens are actually directly responsible for that harassment that lies at the root of the problem. The look on the Israeli ambassador’s face coupled with his hackneyed response when confronted with the accusation by the reporter of him actively trying to deter the piece from airing(thus interfering with a respected news reporting program) should tell you everything you need to know regarding where the guilt lies.
            To add another of my 2 cents, I recently linked to a Jerusalem Post article which reported on an Obama aide’s criticism of Israeli policy in the occupied territories. The comments at the bottom of the article were riddled with insults(judging by the names mainly Israelis) directed towards Americans, and their perceived lack of intelligence(“They just watch the Kardashians and don’t care about what happens here.”). How sad.

            do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don’t worry about

              Hijab Samie, the civilized world understands that anti-Judaism, anti-Semitism & anti-Zionism are one in the same. Do you truly believe that fabrications & out right lies will earn you brownie-points from your corner Imama? Oh wait… David Duke, is that you ?

              • sam

                ”..the civilized world understands that anti-Judaism, anti-Semitism & anti-Zionism are one in the same…”
                Spoken like a true Zionist. So by your logic, your criticism of our government would make you anti-American. In that case, not only are you a traitor to your own country but just like a typical Zionist, you put Israel ahead of your own country.

                • Roger

                  ”the civilized world understands that anti-Judaism, anti-Semitism & anti-Zionism are one in the same” .. anti-Zionism being the worst, it takes all that was anti-Semitic, then expands it to deny Jewish sovereignty.
                  “civilized” doesn’t apply to inbred bigotry or flea-infested goat-flockers… Samie.

            “The Jews have no sense of proportion nor do they have
            any judgment on world affairs…The Jews, I find are very, very selfish. They
            care not how many Estonians, Latvians, Finns, Poles, Yugoslavs or Greeks get
            murdered or mistreated as D[isplaced] P[ersons] as long as the Jews get special
            treatment. Yet when they have power, physical, financial or political neither
            Hitler nor Stalin has anything on them for cruelty or mistreatment to the under
            dog.”

              But, look at the contributions to this country and world. Vaccines, hospitals(find a muslim hospital), charities, arts on and on. For a small group they have had a dramatic inpact on civilization.

          • Roger you upvoted yourself. Pitiful

            What a loser this hasbara troll is. It upvoted its own comment.

        • Roger

          LOL al-Muhammunro, it seems your brethren of flea infested ferret-flockers enjoyed the fact that I approved my message. I noticed that after being called on your incessant inadequacies, you tucked your tail and screamed hasbara,
          .. is this going to be a pathetic standard for you now ?

      • Abdul Keddou

        This is my first time at the Jihadist-nuthugging cesspool known as “MintPress”. All the avatar pictures with the Anarchist masks shows that you clowns think that Muslims will spare you because of your blind loyalty to them. Anarchists, gays and feminists will be at the front of the beheading when the Caliphate sets up shop in Europe. Hopefully enough people will wake up before the Caliphate infests the US too.

          Blow it from your mama’s butt, Cracker trash.

      • Abdul Keddou

        Islam is a barbaric, violent religion because its founder Muhammad was a violent warlord who slaughtered THOUSANDS and beheaded hundreds of “infidels.” Muhammad’s most devout followers do the same and so-called “moderate” Muslims stay silent because they are in tacit agreement with Islam’s barbaric nature: http://www.pewforum.org/2013/04/30/the-worlds-muslims-religion-politics-society-beliefs-about-sharia/
        % of Muslims supporting DEATH PENALTY for leaving Islam:

        Jordan 82%
        Afghanistan 79%

        Palestinian Territories 66%

        % of Muslims supporting STONING TO DEATH for adulterers:

          Both Pew and Gallup are JEW owned companies. What cult is trying to drum up genocide against Muslims? Jews!

          This Klan Kracker or Jewish hasbara troll is LYING and spreading hate propaganda for the Jews.

      • Roger

        Soros Fund Mgmt LLC recently bought over $200 million of stock in Yahoo, so it’s no surprise that Yahoo would even print the likes of mintpress. Here we have the Imam terrorist Choudary pretending to be the Pope, on Yahoo there’s a neo-Nazi (American flag/ Purple Heart avi) pretending to be American.

        Whether this protest is right or wrong, there are no doubts that Americans are rightly concerned to the Islamic encroachment of the United States. Regardless of what you read in comments… I believe that’s the point !

        with references above, I’ll be surprised to see this posted,
        .. what with socialist, anarchist and Imam hall-monitors

        • Robert Munro

          BENJAMIN FRANKLIN An extremely prophetic
          statement made at the

          Constitutional Convention in 1787…………

          “I fully agree with General Washington, that we must protect this young nation from an insidious influence and impenetration. That menace, gentlemen, is the Jews. In whatever country Jews have settled in any great number, they have lowered its moral tone; depreciated its commercial integrity; have segregated themselves and have not been assimilated; have sneered at and tried to undermine the Christian religion upon which that nation is founded, by objecting to its restrictions; have built up a state within the state; and when opposed have tried to strangle that country todeath financially, as in the case of Spain and Portugal. For over 1,700 years, the Jews have been bewailing their sad fate in that they have been exiled fromtheir homeland, as they call Palestine. But, gentlemen, did the world give it to them in fee simple, they would at once find some reason for not returning. Why? Because they are vampires, and
          vampires do not live on vampires. They cannot live only among themselves. They must subsist on Christians and other peoples not of their culture.

          If you do not exclude them from these UnitedStates, in this Constitution, in less than 200 years they will have swarmed here in such great numbers that they will dominate and devour the land and change our form of government, for which we Americans have shed our blood, given our lives, our substance and jeopardized our liberty.

          If you do not exclude them, in less than 200 years our descendants will be working in the fields to furnish them substance, while they will be in the counting houses rubbing their hands. A leopard cannot
          change its spots. Jews are a menace to this country if permitted entrance, and should be excluded by this Constitutional Convention.”

              I personally prefer George Washington’s opinion of you hyenas……….

              GEORGE WASHINGTON, in Maxims of George Washington by A. A. Appleton & Co.:

              The Jews work more effectively against us, than the enemy’s armies. They are a hundred times more dangerous to our liberties and the great cause we are engaged in … It is much to be lamented that each state, long ago, has not hunted them down as pests to society and the greatest enemies we have to the happiness of America.

              Your cult has just about worked its way to the point of a global pogrom. FUN!!!

              • Roger

                LMAO, of course you do Muhammunro !
                The quote’s basically correct, except he’s not speaking about (the Jews) ! As to my question, are you the homegrown variety or foreign ? Either is capable of that regurgitated fallacy

                • Robert Munro

                  Heeb, you are lying. Washington, Franklin, Madison and many others knew your cult of parasites for what you are.

                  It was Voltaire, however, who provided the most succinct description of Judaism………..

                  You will only find in the Jews an ignorant and barbarous people, who for a long time have joined the most sordid avarice to the most detestabJe superstition and to the most invincible hatred of all peoples which tolerate and enrich them. (“Juif,” Dictionnaire Philosophique)

              “There is a huge gap between us (Jews) and our enemies
              not just in ability but in morality, culture, sanctity of life, and conscience.
              They are our neighbors here, but it seems as if at a distance of a few hundred
              meters away, there are people who do not belong to our continent, to our world,
              but actually belong to a different galaxy.” Israeli president Moshe
              Katsav. The Jerusalem Post, May 10, 2001

              1983.

              6. “The thesis that the danger of genocide was hanging over us in June
              1967 and that Israel was fighting for its physical existence is only bluff,
              which was born and developed after the war.” Israeli General Matityahu
              Peled, Ha’aretz, 19 March 1972.

              as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact,
              compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other
              races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the
              inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of

            I cannot believe you believe this is real!!! It is F A K E and has been around for 8 decades! PLEASE stop copying and pasting such detrimental and really laughable (if you are a Franklin lover such as I am) BS. AND do some research before you do!!! Roger is right…GET A LIFE!!!

              No, girlie, it has been around since the 1820s, when Charles Pinckney’s daughter published his diaries. Pinckney was a signer of the Constitution.

              The quote by Pinckney is in line with other statements of Franklin, Washington, Madison, Jefferson and many other American founding fathers and a great many educated people throughout history.

              George Bernard Shaw stated the case pretty well, too………….

              This is the real enemy, the invader from the East, the Druze, the riffian, the oriental parasite; in a word the Jew. (London Morning Post, December 3, 1925)

              This craving for bouquets by Jews is a symptom of racial degeneration. The Jews are worse than my own people. Those Jews who still want to be the chosen race (chosen by the late Lord Balfour) can go to Palestine and stew in their own juice. The rest had better stop being Jews and start being human beings. (Literary Digest, October 12, 1932)

              • americanwoman54

                I think you are delusional. Published where? I have never seen nor heard of it and I am a former history teacher with that period my forte.. Have you ever seen it? Franklin wasn’t that great of a practicing Christian even though he often quoted the Bible, so not sure he would even care about Christians and Christian countries per se. And the same goes for Jefferson, Madison, and Washington. You have a definite agenda within your ignorance. Sad, really.

        It appears most of you did not read the article. Article is about language and not the religion. There are Chinese Muslims. Should we not teach Chinese? There are French Muslims. Should we not teach French? There are American/British/Canadian/Australian Muslims. Should we not teach English? While most of the west relates Arabic with Islam, it is wrong. Only 20% of the Muslim speak Arabic. More Muslim speak Hindi/Urdu than Arabic.
