Thanks to Arab Muslim-funding of ‘Common Core’ by the nation of Qatar, American students are being force-fed Islamic religious doctrine in public schools. Parents in Tennessee are fighting back while administrators defend the policy.
WSMV The textbook in question is being used by many schools in sixth and seventh grade social studies classes. Some parents said the textbook has a large focus on Islam with little to no focus on any other religion.
Ed Butler with the Citizens Against Islamic Indoctrination said some of the material is wrong. “We need to be teaching the truth,” Butler said. “Like when you say it’s a peaceful religion. It’s not a peaceful religion. You either convert or you die.”
“The sweeping Islamic infiltration is being deeply embedded into the Bible belt, and it has penetrated our public schools in Tennessee,” said Dale Walker, the organization’s president, in a release. “Our founding fathers would be appalled.”
The state offers a list of recommended textbooks for districts to choose from, but districts have the option to use books that are not on the list. Butler and others asked the school board to remove the textbooks from classrooms in September, but the board voted unanimously not to do so.
At Tuesday’s meeting, the group passed around a petition calling for the entire school board to resign. “Because they don’t represent the values in White County,” Butler said.
Roy Whited is a school board member, a father and former teacher. He is currently a full-time minister. “We found absolutely nothing wrong with that material,” Whited said.
Whited said he has received death threats. “You know, just watch out for your family, be careful, because when your house burns down, and such things like that,” Whited said.
One concerned parent certainly has got CAIR’s number:
