Catholic School Girls Refusing To Wear Compulsory Head Scarf On Mandatory Mosque Trip Marked Truant

The Ellesmere Port Catholic High School letter to parents notifying them of the trip to the Al Rahma Mosque in Toxteth, Liverpool

Had it been my child, the conversation would not have progressed as far as to whether she would be wearing a scarf –or not. I would have drawn the line at the mandatory mosque trip. But good on those parents who took a stand.

(Daily Mail) –A Roman Catholic schoolgirl has been labelled a truant after she refused to wear a headscarf during a compulsory trip to a mosque.

Amy Owen, 14, and fellow girl pupils at a Catholic secondary school were told to cover their heads and wear trousers or leggings out of respect for their Muslim hosts.

But when her mother objected, saying she did not want her daughter to ‘dress as a Muslim’, she received a sternly worded warning letter from the headmaster saying she had no choice.
……
He added: ‘There are two reasons for these visits. One is that the scheme of work in religious studies REQUIRES children to have knowledge and understanding of other world religions.

‘The second is that the school is REQUIRED to promote tolerance respect and understanding. This is known as community cohesion.

‘A failure to do this could result in an unwelcome inspection judgement. None of us would relish that.

‘Whilst I may not require you to pay for this I must require your child to participate.’

Amy’s mother Michelle Davies refused to back down and, after being told no teachers would be back at school to keep an eye on her daughter, she kept her at home, citing religious objectionsas did as many as ten other families.

Yesterday, after the school acted on its threat to class Amy’s absence as truancy, Miss Davies accused it of discriminating against Christian pupils.

‘It’s like they’re putting a gun to your head – either you go to a mosque, or you’re marked down as an unauthorised absence on your record – that’s it no two ways about it,’ the 34-year-old said.
……
Parents were asked to make a £3 payment towards the Year 9 trip to the Al Rahma Mosque in Liverpool last month, and an 11-point dress and behaviour code from the mosque was circulated.

Miss Davies, a home help, of Ellesmere Port, added: ‘There are some parts of religious education lessons that children who are Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t have to attend because that’s part of their religion, and the fact is Amy is Catholic and not a Muslim.’

Read the last paragraph very carefully. Jehovah’s Witness students get a pass at the Catholic school but the Catholic students do not on a forced field trip to a mosque.

Chrislam; once you invite the devil across your doorstep, he…will…never…leave. And if you dare try to push him out, there will be hell to pay.

Anti-islamization News Of The Day London Council Rejects Tablighi Jamaat’s Mega Mosque [Update: Major Jihad Recruiting Agency]

December 6, 2012 at 9:26 pm

Islamist triumphalism  –access denied!

(London Evening Standard) –A Muslim group behind a proposed east London mega-mosque today [Dec. 6, 2012] vowed to seek a judicial review after councillors rejected the scheme, saying it was “too big” and would not serve the needs of the local community.

Hardline sect Tablighi Jamaat purchased the 17-acre brownfield site in Abbey Mills, Newham, in 1996 and has been trying to build a mosque there for more than a decade, despite opposition from residents and campaign groups.

The current plan is for a 9,000-capacity Islamic centre with prayer hall, and dining facilities for 2,000. It would have 40ft minarets and four times the capacity of St Paul’s, equal to the UK’s biggest mosque, the Baitul Futuh in Morden.

It would host a sports pavilion, tennis courts and residential units. Last night, as thousands of Muslims gathered outside Stratford Town Hall to voice their support, Newham councillors turned down the planning application, saying it did not fit with their vision of bringing housing and jobs to the area.

Conor McAuley, Newham’s executive member for regeneration and strategic planning, said: “The scheme was too large, there was not sufficient parking, it would have an impact on historic buildings nearby, and it failed to serve the needs of the community. Our policies promote the development of the Abbey Mills site for a mix of residential, employment and community uses, to help create a new local centre near West Ham station and regenerate the area.”

Update: Tablighi Jamaat: Jihad’s Stealthy Legions –Middle East Quarterly

The West’s misreading of Tablighi Jamaat actions and motives has serious implications for the war on terrorism. Tablighi Jamaat has always adopted an extreme interpretation of Sunni Islam, but in the past two decades, it has radicalized to the point where it is now a driving force of Islamic extremism and a major recruiting agency for terrorist causes worldwide. For a majority of young Muslim extremists, joining Tablighi Jamaat is the first step on the road to extremism. Perhaps 80 percent of the Islamist extremists in France come from Tablighi ranks, prompting French intelligence officers to call Tablighi Jamaat the “antechamber of fundamentalism.”[12] U.S. counterterrorism officials are increasingly adopting the same attitude. “We have a significant presence of Tablighi Jamaat in the United States,” the deputy chief of the FBI’s international terrorism section said in 2003, “and we have found that Al-Qaeda used them for recruiting now and in the past.”[13] [...]

BTW An application for another (albeit much smaller mosque) was also rejected Monday night in the London borough of Worchester Park.

French Media Blacks Out Massive (Historical) Protest Against Islamization [Video]

November 27, 2012 at 9:33 am

French patriots determined to fight back against the Muslim hordes are ignored by the media. Those who willingly handed France to islam on a silver platter will be the first to cry when the islamic savages whom they embraced and defended serve their heads on a plate.

YouTube Preview Image

(CBN) –A patriotic march for French values and culture, and against radical Islam, was virtually blacked out by France’s politically correct media.

Over the weekend, protestors chanted against Islamic fascism and about the French victory over Arab invaders in 732 A.D. It was the first march of its kind in France.

A broad coalition of groups from across France came together because they feel they’re losing their country to radical Islam, Sharia law, and a politically correct establishment that encourages the spread of Islam.

“Sharia law is slowly being enforced in our country and we want to march here to protest that because our government is doing nothing,” one French demonstrator said.
……
The march took place just weeks after a group of French young people called Generation Identitaire stormed a mosque in Portiers and hung a banner from the roof, demanding a referendum on Muslim immigration.
……
The leftist French media ignored the demonstration, seeing it as racist. But it’s clear the movement to resist radical Islam is growing in France.

Video: ‘The Grand Jihad’ Obama’s Islamist Sympathies Towards The Muslim Brotherhood

February 3, 2012 at 4:57 pm

Pull quote:

“President Obama does not seem to see the problem. The Obama policy of courting the Muslim Brotherhood has not changed the Brothers. It has empowered them to advance their anti-American program.”

YouTube Preview Image

(encounterbooks) –The real threat to the United States is not terrorism. The real threat is the sophisticated forces of Islamism, which have collaborated with the American Left not only to undermine U.S. national security but to shred the fabric of American constitutional democracy. In The Grand Jihad, bestselling author Andrew C. McCarthy provides a harrowing account of how the global Islamist movement’s jihad involves far more than terrorist attacks, and how it has found the ideal partner in President Barack Obama, whose Islamist sympathies run deep.

McCarthy is the former federal prosecutor who convicted the notorious “Blind Sheikh” and other jihadists for waging a terrorist war that included the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. In his national bestseller, Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad (Encounter 2008), he explored government’s conscious avoidance of the terrorist threat, which made the nation vulnerable to mass-murder attacks. In The Grand Jihad he exposes a more insidious peril: government’s active concealment of the Islamist ideology that unabashedly vows to “conquer America.” With the help of witting and unwitting accomplices in and out of government, Islamism doesn’t merely fuel terrorism but spawns America-hating Islamic enclaves in our midst and gradually foists Islam’s repressive law, sharia, on American life. The revolutionary doctrine has made common cause with an ascendant Left that also seeks radical transformation of our constitutional order. The prognosis for liberty could not be more dire.

U.S. Mosques: 84.5% of Imams Recommend Studying Violent Texts, 58% Guest Imams Promoted Violent Jihad, 51% Texts Advocate Severe Violence

Sharia Adherence Mosque Survey: Correlations between Sharia Adherence and Violent Dogma in U.S. Mosques

Abstract

A random survey of 100 representative mosques in the U.S. was conducted to measure the correlation between Sharia adherence and dogma calling for violence against non-believers.

Of the 100 mosques surveyed,

51% had texts on site rated as severely advocating violence

30% had texts rated as moderately advocating violence

19% had no violent texts at all.

Mosques that presented as Sharia adherent were more likely to feature violence-positive texts on site than were their non-Sharia-adherent counterparts.

In 84.5% of the mosques, the imam recommended studying violence-positive texts.

The leadership at Sharia-adherent mosques was more likely to recommend that a worshipper study violence-positive texts than leadership at non-Sharia-adherent mosques.

Fifty-eight percent of the mosques invited guest imams known to promote violent jihad.

The leadership of mosques that featured violence-positive literature was more likely to invite guest imams who were known to promote violent jihad than was the leadership of mosques that did not feature violence-positive literature on mosque premises.

Read it all.

Via Robert Spencer, who adds:

In 1998, Sheikh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani, a Sufi leader, visited 114 mosques in the United States. Then he gave testimony before a State Department Open Forum in January 1999, and asserted that 80% of American mosques taught the “extremist ideology.”

Then there was the Center for Religious Freedom’s 2005 study, and the Mapping Sharia Project’s 2008 study. Each independently showed that upwards of 80% of mosques in America were preaching hatred of Jews and Christians and the necessity ultimately to impose Islamic rule. [...]

Toronto: Misogynistic Islamic Mentality in a Public School –Segregating Girls from the Boys

July 12, 2011 at 7:07 pm

The tacit endorsement of Islam by the Toronto school board.

The girls are being segregated during Muslim prayers, that as I have mentioned in the title, are being held in a PUBLIC SCHOOL “mosqueteria”, if you will.

The article that accompanied the photo below, gives as the reason the girls in the back are being segregated from the group is that they are having their periods. But if you notice, [all] of the girls are separated by rows of bleachers from their male classmates. And that menstruating girls are deemed so unclean, that they are not even allowed to participate in the prayers with those of their own gender, is all the more disturbing. Then again, what about Islam is not disturbing?

"The girls sitting at the back during Friday prayers are menstruating and not allowed to sit with everyone else." - John Goddard/Toronto Star

(National Post) –The photo depicts a row of girls sitting in the cafeteria of Valley Park Middle School in Toronto. The row is segregated behind a mass of students who are participating in an Islamic prayer service. The reason the girls in the back are not praying is because -wait for it -they have their periods.

One is tempted to say: Is this the Middle Ages? Have I stumbled into a time warp, where “unclean” women must be prevented from “defiling” other persons? It’s bad enough that the girls at Valley Park have to enter the cafeteria from the back, while the boys enter from the front, but does the entire school have the right to know they are menstruating?
……
In defence of the school’s practices, Toronto District School Board Education (TDSB) director Chris Spence stated that, “As a public school board, we have a responsibility and an obligation to accommodate faith needs.” But those “faith needs” are a matter of debate.
……
According to the liberal-minded Muslim Canadian Congress (MCC), Friday prayers actually are not a compulsory religious requirement for these students. The group also opposes the gender segregation imposed on the children. Indeed, the MCC is contemplating legal action to force the TDSB to respect the Ontario Education Act, which states, “a board shall not permit any person to conduct religious exercises or to provide instruction that includes religious indoctrination in a particular religion or religious belief in a school.”

This regulation respects the 1988 Ontario Court of Appeal ruling in the case of Zylberberg v. Sudbury Board of Education. The court held that the Lord’s Prayer could no longer be spoken in public schools, on the grounds that it discriminated against students from other faiths, or who had no religion at all.

Continue reading >>>

The “Lord’s Prayer” in a public school is an illegal “discriminatory” act, BUT the prayers and instruction of the religion of barbarism, inequality and hate are to be “accommodated”.

“The absurd lengths that leftists will go to, in order to allow Muslims preferential treatment, and immunity from their own (leftists) laws

Bibles are banned BUT the un-holy Quran is not. This mindset gives Muslims special status above the law, thereby creating a quasi-caliphate within the Canadian public school system, ruled by sharia law.

Keep bending over milquetoast leftists, and eventually the choice to stand straight up, will never come your way again…

European Court to Muslims Swiss Minaret Ban Not Human Rights Violation

July 9, 2011 at 6:54 am

Good! Score one for the anti-Islamization crowd.

(Daily Herald) –The European Court of Human Rights on Friday dismissed a challenge by Muslim groups to Switzerland’s minaret building ban.
……
Swiss voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional ban on minarets in 2009 that barred any more construction of the iconic mosque towers.
……
The judges concluded that the people who filed the lawsuits in the European court _ a former spokesman for a Geneva mosque and several Swiss Muslim groups _ failed to show how the ban had harmed their human rights, the court said in a statement Friday.

“For an application to be admissible, it had to be lodged by an applicant who could claim to be the ‘victim’ of a violation,” the court said. “The court noted at the outset that their main complaint was that the disputed constitutional provision offended their religious beliefs; however, they did not allege that it had had any practical effect on them.”

The referendum by the nationalist Swiss People’s Party had labeled minarets as symbols of rising Muslim political power that could one day transform Switzerland into an Islamic nation.

The initiative was approved 57.5 to 42.5 percent by some 2.67 million voters. Only four of the 26 cantons or states opposed the initiative, granting the double approval that makes it part of the Swiss constitution.  >>>

Imam of Miami’s Oldest Mosque and 4 Close Family Members Indicted: Financing and Supporting Pakistani Taliban [Update 2: Bail DENIED]

May 14, 2011 at 8:50 am

Along with a son (who just so happens to be an Imam at another Miami mosque, fancy that), another son, a daughter and a grandson. All total, 6 were indicted, as there is one lone non-family member among the group.

Three are U.S. citizens.

Filthy Islamic traitors.

(Miami Herald) The leader of the oldest mosque in Miami and his son, leader of a Margate mosque, are among six people indicted by the U.S. Attorney’s office in South Florida on charges of financing and supporting Pakistani terrorists.

The four-count indictment, filed Thursday, charges Hafiz Muhammed Sher Ali Khan (“Khan”), 76, Imam at the Miami Mosque, also known as the Flagler Mosque; his son, Irfan Khan, 37, Imam at the Jamaat Al-Mu’mineen Mosque in Margate; and one of his other sons, Izhar Khan, 24, who lives in North Lauderdale. All are U.S. citizens.

FBI agents arrested Hafiz Khan and his son Saturday in South Florida. Irfan Khan was arrested in Los Angeles. The remaining suspects are at large in Pakistan, according to the U.S. Attorney.

“Despite being an Imam, or spiritual leader, Hafiz Khan was by no means a man of peace,’’ U.S. Attorney Wifredo A. Ferrer said in a statement. “Instead, as today’s charges show, he acted with others to support terrorists to further acts of murder, kidnapping and maiming.”

Three other people in Pakistan, Ali Rehman, also known as “Faisal Ali Rehman;” Alam Zeb; and Amina Khan, also known as “Amina Bibi,” also are charged. Amina Khan is the daughter of Khan and her son, Alam Zeb, is Khan’s grandson.

The suspects are charged with conspiring to provide, and providing material support to a conspiracy to murder, maim and kidnap persons overseas, as well as conspiring to provide material support to the Pakistani Taliban, according to a press release. Khan, Rehman and Zeb are also charged with providing material support to the Taliban.
……
Ferrer said the suspects were transferring funds to Pakistan for the Taliban, including the purchase of guns. Investigators became suspicious over several financial transactions. According to the indictment, the suspects endorsed violence by the Taliban. Investigators listened in on telephone calls and conducted other actions they did not specify. >>>

Mosques aren’t terrorist hives…nope…not at all.

DOJ press release:http://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/2011/May/11-nsd-621.html

Update:

FBI agents with an arrest warrant for Imam Khan were told they had to wait til after prayers to make the arrest. And they complied! Is that a privilege enjoyed by all? Or just muslims? My inquiring mind wants to know.

(Miami Herald) As dawn prayers were spoken just after 6 a.m. Saturday, FBI agents surrounded Miami’s oldest mosque, then banged on the door.

A man opened it. The agents were there with an arrest warrant.

The Muslim man explained that they were in prayer and could not be interrupted. He returned to praying. The agents, who had taken off their shoes before entering the mosque, waited quietly.

“No matter what kind of emergency, we do not break the prayer,’’ explained Shameem Akhtar, a mosque member who was there.

$50,000 did not appear out of thin air. Member donations to the Mosque one possible source…

When the prayer was finished, agents arrested Hafiz Muhammad Sher Ali Khan, the 76-year-old imam of the Miami Mosque, more commonly known as Flagler Mosque. They charged that he and his family had funneled more than $50,000 to Pakistani terrorists over the past three years.
……
“What a stupid thing,” said Arif Baig, 50, of the arrests as he brought his two children to a Koran class at the Flagler Mosque on Saturday. “He’s poor. He doesn’t have money to send over there.”

Out comes the bearded Pakistani Muslim card. I’ve been expecting you.

Khan “has nothing to do with [the Taliban],” Baig said. “It’s just because he has a beard and is from that part of the world.”

Astonishing that both the Muslim Communities Association and Coalition of South Florida Muslim Organizations have never actually read the Quran. For shame!

The Muslim Communities Association and Coalition of South Florida Muslim Organizations held an afternoon press conference to publicly condemn any support of terrorism or violence.

“Islam as a faith does not promote, advocate, or condone terrorism,’’ the statement said.

Khan has been in the US for over 14 years and doesn’t speak English, not trying hard enough to integrate if you ask me. To busy funding Taliban terror…perhaps. There is only so much time in the day.

Kahn came to Miami from New Orleans and has been an imam at Flagler mosque for the past 14 years, according to Asad Ba-Yunus, spokesman for the Muslim Community Organization.

Membership isn’t consistent, and members have complained that Kahn could not speak English.
……
“They are hard-working people who have tried to integrate and have been living here for quite some time,’’ Farhan Abid, 33, said of Khan, his wife and sons.

More details on the alleged terror activities. Sounds pretty rock solid, Imam Khan was caught on tape conspiring with the Taliban.

But federal documents detail how Khan, two of his sons, his daughter and grandson conspired to help the Pakistani Taliban, a terrorist organization that has killed an untold number of Pakistani citizens, government officials and U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. The family “endorsed” the violence perpetrated by the Taliban, according to the federal indictment released Saturday. Tape-recorded phone conversations caught Khan discussing a strategy to shoot and kill Pakistani officials and called for an attack on the Pakistani Assembly. He also lent support for a school that trains children to kill Americans, authorities said.

The Taliban to some extent was/is actively planning an overthrow of the Pakistani government, it would seem…

Update 2:

MIAMI (CBS4) – A pair of South Florida Muslim clerics, charged with providing financial support to the Pakistani Taliban, have been denied bail in federal court in Miami.

Magistrate Judge Barry Garber ordered pretrial detention for 76-year-old Hafiz Muhammad Sher Ali Khan and his son, 24-year-old Izhar Khan. Garber agreed with prosecutors that both men are a danger to the community and are likely to flee prosecution.

……

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the money sent by this group to Pakistan was used to buy guns and fund a madrassa (religious school) owned by Hafiz Khan which sheltered terrorists and trained children to kill Americans. >>>
