Public school teaches the shahada, the Islamic prayer for conversions

Editor's note: the home page blurb for this blog incorrectly indicated that students "recite" the shahada. This is incorrect. They study it.

Islam has forced its way into our schools, brainwashing our children. We should all be profoundly concerned, whether we have school age children or not. Because when you capture the minds of young people, you own the future.

And unlike Obama’s insistence that “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” we must ensure that the future absolutely belongs to those who have freedom of speech. At the same time, we must reclaim Judeo-Christian values – the values that built this country and made it an exceptional nation.

So we must all make our voices heard on this most recent revelation that public schools in Seminole County, and across the state of Florida, are not only teaching the five pillars of Islam, but that high school students are being taught the shahada, which is the Islamic prayer that is recited when a person converts to Islam. Student assignments also include having to make prayer rugs.

That Islamic propaganda has infiltrated our schools would be bad enough. But in addition, it was discovered that 100 pages on the history of Christianity and Judaism were removed from many of the history textbooks in Seminole County that were teaching the five pillars of Islam.

All the while it appears that at least one teacher was trying to circumvent parents by directly communicating with her students via social media to remind them of their Islamic lessons and assignments.

WFTV reports:

A history book used in school districts across the state is sparking controversy in Seminole County.

A parent called 9 Investigates after finding out his son was learning too much about the Islamic religion in a public classroom.

Ron Wagner read from part of his son's world history book, "There is no god, but God. Muhamad is the messenger of God." (snip)

Wagner, who is not religious, said he had no idea the public school was teaching so extensively about religion until he spotted a text on his son's phone from a teacher reminding him to complete a prayer rug assignment and study an Islam packet.

"For it to be mandatory and part of the curriculum and in the textbooks, didn't seem right," Wagner said.

Inside of the book is a chapter dedicated to the "Rise of Islam," including prayers and scriptures from the Quran. What's more disturbing for Wagner is that the first 100 pages discussing Judaism and Christianity are missing. The district blames a manufacturer defect in 68 books that are only a year old.

(Full interview with father of the student, here. Two-minute except of interview, here. Full interview with school district spokesperson who ultimately got up and walked away from the interview, here.)

We must all stand up and speak out whether or not we have a child in the public school system in Seminole County or a child in school anywhere. The left, in coordination with Muslim Brotherhood front groups, are advancing Islam on all fronts. We must push back. Hard. Nothing less than our future is at stake.
