Gabriel warns about Islam-loving curriculum
Brigitte Gabriel of ACT for America says she’s concerned after Kansas City Schools adopted a resolution condemning “hate speech” against Muslims.
The school board passed the resolution with “assistance” from an Islamic group called the Crescent Peace Society, The Kansas City Star reported in a glowing commentary about the issue.
The commentary, written by a Star reporter, praised the school board for approving a “progressive” resolution, but Gabriel predicts the students will be brainwashed with propaganda from radical Islamic groups such as CAIR.
The commentary admitted that there have been no incidents of violence or hateful incidents that prompted the school board’s action.
Yet the school board is requiring teachers to go through “sensitivity training” about Islam, Gabriel complains.
“And actually classifying it as hate speech,” she tells OneNewsNow, “if you teach anything that they perceive as derogatory towards Islam or not make Islam look in a positive light.”
That kind of Islamic pandering has been seen in other school districts around the country, Gabriel notes, due to politically correct policies.
Fact-checking website Snopes couldn’t defend claims that California seventh graders were subjected to Islamic propaganda contained in a world history curriculum.
In a “Mixed” rating responding to Internet reports, the website reported:
Does it present Muslims in a positive light and Christians in a negative one? Some argue that it does — by happenstance or otherwise, the information about Islam’s place in world history is presented within the context of that belief system’s glory days of scholarship and expansion of trade, while the information about Christianity generally only appears against a backdrop of Christians harming their neighbors and attempting to quash science.
Yet another Scopes investigation gave a “Mixed” response to claims from Massachusetts, where students were taught the Islamic creed known as “Shahada” in a course about world religions.
Gabriel says there are other credible reports of students visiting mosques, adopting Islamic names, and memorizing verses from the Koran.
