New Jersey Middle School, Chatham, has been accused of Islamic indoctrination of their seventh graders. This goes against the fundamentals of America, which demand a separation of church and state, but when the mothers made a complaint against the school, they were immediately shunned as bigots for their concerns.
Libby Hilsenrath and Nancy Gayer, the two concerned mothers, were subjected to a downpour of negative responses on social media after hiring the Thomas More Law Center about their objections to the pro-Islamic curriculum. The responses only got worse after they went on Fox TV’s Tucker Carlson Show, with them being called: “hateful, ignorant, xenophobes, racist, intolerant, close minded, sad and ignorant.”
This list is just the tip of the iceberg and is extremely unfortunate. These mothers had legitimate concerns and should be allowed to voice them when it comes to the safety and education of their own children.
Below is a video that was showed to the students:
The promotion of Islam is worse than what the mothers presented to Tucker Carlson,” Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center said.
“After viewing one of the videos which the seventh graders were directed to watch, I can’t imagine any objective person saying this is not Islamic indoctrination. Clueless school administrators across our nation are allowing this type of indoctrination to take place and it’s up to vigilant parents to stop it. Libby and Nancy should have been praised, not pilloried,” Thompson added.
“Students had been shown a subtle propaganda cartoon video, 5 Pillars, which opens with two boys, one of them a Muslim, kicking a soccer ball,” the statement said, adding:
The Muslim teaches the non-Muslim the 5 Pillars of Islam. Additionally, a subtitle of bright, multi-colored words of various shapes pronounces a form of the Islamic conversion creed: “There is no god except Allah and Prophet Muhammad is His messenger.” The cartoon ends with a sad non-Muslim boy, who suddenly smiles when the Muslim boy invites him to join him at the mosque for noon-day prayers. . .
Clearly, seventh graders had been presented with a sugarcoated, false depiction of Islam. They had not been informed of the kidnappings, beheadings, slave-trading, massacres, and persecution of non-Muslims, nor of the repression of women — all done in the name of Islam and the Koran.
