Islamic Education In Schools

Class by CAIR teaches: 'There is one god, Allah'

Public school students at Friendswood Junior High in the Houston area have been roped into Islamic training by representatives from the Council on American-Islamic Relations during class time, prompting religious leaders to protest over Principal Robin Lowe's actions.

Pastor Dave Welch, spokesman for the Houston Area Pastor Council, confirmed the indoctrination had taken place and called it "unacceptable."

"The failure of the principal of Friendswood Junior High to respect simple procedures requiring parental notification for such a potentially controversial subject, to not only approve but participate personally in a religious indoctrination session led by representatives of a group with well-known links to terrorist organizations and her cavalier response when confronted, raises serious questions about her fitness to serve in that role," the pastors' organization said.

According to a parent, whose name was withheld, the children were given the Islamic indoctrination during time that was supposed to be used for a physical education class.

"I am simply trying to get the word out to those whose kids may not have told them about an Islamic presentation that all kids were required to attend," wrote the parent, who was working to assemble protests to the school board.

The pastors said in a statement: "According to students who were forced to attend these sessions, these Islamic evangelists taught them:

Adam, Noah and Jesus are prophets

There is one god, his name is Allah

The 5 Pillars of Islam

How to pray five times a day

Islamic religious garb"

    Christians face arrest and beatings by police in Birmingham UK for preaching the gospel while British (mis)government sends imams into schools to teach Islam to British kids.

  2. If Christians here in the states, even attempted to do what CAIR did, the ACLU and Americans United would be all over them. Yet many of the same liberals who would be enraged by Christians even attempting this, turn a blind eye to Muslims doing the same thing.

    damien . . .it would be wonderful if ANY religious group would approach this particular school and demand equal time. If refused - perhaps it is time to test this in court.

    One law applied equally to all at all times.
