Seattle Area Schools Urged to Bless Muslim Students during Ramadan

“A school district would never order teachers to ‘welcome’ Catholic students during Easter with ‘He is risen, alleluia!’ Singling out Muslim students for special treatment is blatantly unconstitutional.”

(Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund)

Sharia creep for sure!

Ibrahim Hooper calls the complaint a “sign of the growing Islamophobia in our nation.”

And, it may be happening in your neighborhood too, but in the Seattle area at least a few parents and teachers said ‘no way’ to this special treatment for Muslim students, and a legal defense fund is threatening to sue the school district.

CAIR says the complaints are “Islamophobic.”

Washington school district wants teachers to bless Muslim students in Arabic during Ramadan, religious liberty group claims

 

A religious liberty advocacy group is threatening to slap a Seattle-area school district with a lawsuit claiming the district has urged teachers to bless Muslim students in Arabic during the holy month of Ramadan and give them preferential treatment, including skipping tests.

The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF) claims the Dieringer School District is officially endorsing Islam and is following a script by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) that urges schools to make special accommodations for Muslim students and to wish them “Ramadan Mubarak,” which means “Happy Ramadan,” or “Ramadan Kareem,” which means “Have a generous Ramadan.”

The CAIR guidelines also instruct teachers to monitor Muslim students fasting and suggests teachers not schedule any tests on the Islamic holidays of Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha.

“By urging teachers to bless Muslim students in Arabic, the district is running roughshod over the First Amendment’s mandate of government neutrality toward religion,” said Daniel Piedra, FCDF’s executive director.“A school district would never order teachers to ‘welcome’ Catholic students during Easter with ‘He is risen, alleluia!’ Singling out Muslim students for special treatment is blatantly unconstitutional.”

The defense fund claims Dieringer Superintendent Judy Martinson blindly followed the recommendations of CAIR and “enacted the letter as official district policy.”The defense fund sent Martinson a letter stating their complaints after a teacher and parent complained about the new procedure.

The May 6 letter also warned Martinson about CAIR’s anti-semitic advocacy and alleged ties to radical Islamists, which the group has long denied.

Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director for CAIR, the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, told Fox News the pushback from FCDF was a “sign of the growing Islamophobia in our nation that showing respect for and accommodating the religious traditions of Muslim students could result in punitive legal action.”

See my post yesterday about Islamic “charities” like CAIR receiving federal grant dollars as they indoctrinate uninformed Americans.

All of you, especially those of you with children still in school, need to find out if such an edict has been sent out in your local school district.

  1. My suggestion: get the schools to show the kids’ video, ISLAM – WHO, WHAT, AND HOW, before anything else relating to Islam. Fun, easy, simple and TRUTHFUL. Just 9 minutes. It teaches the 3 essential teachings of Islam, including al Walaa wal Baraa. Have a class or 2 exploring the ideology. By the way, it’s made for 8-year-olds, but is also very good for adults who are not well informed. You can watch it here: http://livefreedom.net/hindi-islam-who-what-how.html It is also direct on Youtube – but the page brings you to lots of other information, like a resource page for grownups, showing that everything said is valid. Anyone who can help with this – including you, Ann – please get in touch with me. elsa [who is at] elsasblog [dot] com. By the way, the video has had about 200,000 views, through various uploading.

  2. I have often heard that offence is the best defence. To propose that any reference to Islam be preceded by a quick TRUTHFUL education on Islam, is to (in a very nice way) go on the offensive. As I’ve stated above, I don’t think anything else is as fun, easy and TRUTHFUL as the 9-minute kids’ video, ISLAM – WHO, WHAT, AND HOW. http://livefreedom.net/hindi-islam-who-what-how.html I made it, in fact, because of all the dangerous indoctrination happening in the schools. Too difficult to counter, one school system at a time. This is a proposed truth-serum against the content of the indoctrination. All the content has been verified by 2 scholars of Islam, notably Bill Warner, PhD, whom may well be the world’s top scholar of Islam.
