NORTH CAROLINA: U.S. Representative Walter Jones opposes Saudi-funded government grant to Craven Community College for books and DVDs about Islam

Officially, the grant for the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf/Muslim Journeys program is from the National Endowment for the Humanities, but these kinds of grants virtually always originate with the Saudi government, which provides more than 70% of the funding for history textbooks currently being used in American schools (See links below video)


JDNews U.S. Rep. Walter Jones, R-Farmville, has taken a stand against a recent grant to Craven Community College to provide 25 books and a DVD to “introduce Muslim cultures to Americans,” Jones’ office said in a news release. The “Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys” grant came from the National Endowment for the Humanities.


The National Endowment for the Humanities The Bridging Cultures Bookshelf/Muslim Journeys is a set of over 25 books and documentaries, as well as other resources including access to Oxford Islamic Studies Online, that have been selected for distribution to up to 1,000 competing public libraries, academic libraries, and state humanities councils at the start of next year in an effort to familiarize the public with the diverse people, places, history, faith and cultures of Muslims in America and around the globe.


Jones has consistently opposed federal spending bills that give money to the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts, his office said. “It is appalling to me that a federal agency like NEH is wasting taxpayer money on programs like this,” Jones said. “It makes zero sense for the U.S. government to borrow money from China in order to promote the culture of Islamic civilizations.”

Book titles include: “The Butterfly Mosque: A Young American Woman’s Journey to Love and Islam,” “The Story of the Qur’an,” “Muhammad,” and “A Quiet Revolution: The Veil’s Resurgence, from the Middle East to America.”


To receive the grant, the college library is “required to organize programs that introduce the books and the Muslim Journeys themes to the library’s patrons and the broader community.” The library also must add the books to its circulating collection. If Craven Community College accepts the grant, Jones has called on college leaders to follow their policy of providing “balanced” resources for library patrons.

In a letter to the college, Jones asks the board of trustees to give equal exposure to books about Christianity and America’s rich Judeo-Christian heritage.“However, in light of the government’s role in keeping God out of the public square and the obstacles that Christians face when it comes to prayer and the ability to publicly proclaim our faith, it just seems more than odd that the federal government will provide a package of ‘Muslim Journeys’ to a number of colleges nationwide,” Schill said. “It’s even more perplexing knowing the fiscal problems facing our nation.”

  1. If the intention is to push down the throats of non-muslims the evil (unholy) islam, this horrendous proposition must be labeled as “Endowment for (the promotion of) the (In)humanity”

    This campaign might be considered as a good idea only if it’s implemented in saudi arabia, after all, those evil doers and bigots don’t know the meaning of the word respect so they are the ones who need to learn to ‘build bridges’ between muslims and non-muslims. Those bloodthirsty people are the ones who need to learn about “Humanity” (“Humanities”)

    Non-muslims don’t need that crap.

  2. Virginia, look at what a MAN looks like. Your state is infected. Once known for the nations finest leaders, it is now known for the wahabbi corridor. SPIT!

    Washington. Lee. Mt. Vernon… occupied by foreign infiltrators who’ve offered gifts that have been accepted by traitors, who should be handed on sight, that readily accepted the payoff from filthy koranimals from the most intolerant land in the world in order to look past the infiltration of our country for the invaders to establish a beach head on the East coast w/o a cause or concern for America’s safety.

    You make me sick. Damn you all.

  3. Well done Mr. Jones. This is a perfect example of stealth jihad. We are over in the muslim hell holes trying to bring democracy and the muslims are over here bringing their filthy lies and taqiyya cool aid about their evil cult. Controlling the mind is a stronger jihad than any other attack on our wonderful life style in America. The regular people in Saudi are dirt poor but they can fund billions in text books to us to subvert our way of life and to hell with their own people.

  4. judy’s logic is so flawed. If it were a real grant, it would be free. But this one comes with a price — to get the “grant” they must agree to sell Islam to the community. This is a bad deal all around. Good for Jones!

  5. I was wondering if “Craven” was the actual name of the college. If the college actually does take the grant, and submit to Islamic bully tactics, then they will live up to their name! Craven means cowardly.
