The most extreme armed faction in Syria has threatened to destroy Canada. Speaking in flawless English, a member of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant said in an online video that after fighting in the Middle East, the group would turn on North America.
About 130 radicalized Canadians are believed to remain active abroad, while 80 have returned to Canada from various conflict zones, as Western governments are struggling to deal with radicalized citizens infatuated with Al-Qaeda ideology. (So, why is Canada allowing them back in?)
I guess when you’re a failed comedian (jokes about Islamophobia have a limited audience), you get to write articles for a 3rd rate leftist website. Here is Palestinian-American Muslim Dean Obeidallah’s opinion about the anti-Islam textbook bill recently passed in Florida.
‘Islamophobic’ Florida Republican Would Legalize Textbook Censorship
The Daily Beast A state senator who says Muslims threaten America wants to give more control to local school boards after a ‘hate’ group asked students to tear out one book’s chapter on Islam.
Could a seemingly innocent education bill championed by Republicans actually be a way for them to censor school textbooks and prevent students from learning about certain (Islam) cultures and religions? In the words of Sarah Palin: “You betcha.”
On Friday, the Florida State Senate passed a bill drafted by Republican Senator Alan Hays that would change the way textbooks are chosen in the Sunshine State. This measure, which was opposed by every Democratic Senator, would alter a process that had been created to “avoid religious and political bias” and empower the local school districts to choose their own textbooks without the approval of the Florida Department of Education.
But there’s more to this legislation than just education, after all it’s opposed by the Florida Parent Teacher Association and the Florida School Board Association. Add to that, this proposal was not requested by any local school boards. In fact, some boards have voiced concerns that they lack the funds and resources to review textbooks.
So why this law? Well, two reasons. It’s part of the Republicans backlash to the Common Core academic standards that they incorrectly dub a federal program. It’s not, it’s a bipartisan State initiative started by Governors.
But the bigger reason Senator Hays is pushing for this law is because of Islam. No, he isn’t a Muslim. Thankfully.
You see, in November a protest erupted in Volusia County, Florida by outraged parents who claimed the school’s world history textbook had dedicated more pages to Islam than other religions. One of the protest organizers even recommended that students tear out the chapter onIslam. God forbid Florida students learn about other cultures and religions (No, only Islam).
Soon anti-Muslim groups got involved to stop the “Islamization of public school” textbooks, including the despicable “Act for America.” When you see the name, “Act for America” please keep in mind that the (Communist) Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has listed it as a hate group and the (Far leftist) Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has identified them as “extremists.”
Well these Muslim book bashers found a perfect friend in Senator Hays. After all, for the past four years Hays has introduced legislation to ban sharia law in Florida courts. Of course, there hasn’t been any instances of people trying to impose Sharia law in Florida but why should Hays let facts get in the way of demonizing Muslims when it plays to his base? And play to his base it does.
And the Republican Party in Hays own Senate district recently featured a speaker from “Act for America” – yes, that horrible group – (only horrible to Muslim supremacists like you) who offered a talk described as: “If you believe that Islam is just another religion (and not a threat to America and the world)…then you especially need to hear this presentation.”
But putting aside Hays personal views about Muslims, the legislation is alarming because it could lead to censorship. As Democratic Florida State Senator Geraldine Thompson explained to me, this law would enable all 67 Florida school districts to adopt their own textbooks. Consequently, some districts may ban books that discuss other lifestyles or cultures they find objectionable.
I reached out to Senator Hays for comment but he never responded. Although I wasn’t surprised because his staffer I spoke to had never heard of The Daily Beast. (Only leftists have ever heard of this biased rag)
This proposed law could truly result in conservative school districts putting aside what’s in the best interest of the students (Islam is NEVER in the best interest of anyone) and instead only choosing textbooks that teach political and social views that comport with their right wing politics. (As if anything related to the far left American school system could be considered right wing)
At this point, the Senate bill is headed to the Florida State House for consideration. Hopefully, the members of the Florida House, Democrats and Republicans alike, will reject Senator Hays’ proposed legislation. Any other result will open the dangerous door of censorship in the Florida school system. (NOT censoring Islam is the only danger to Florida schools)

Savage abuse of Australian cattle continues in Gaza five months after first being reported.
Ban Live Export The good news, is that after receiving evidence from Animals Australia in November, the Australian Government ceased granting export permits to Gaza.The bad news, is that this was no help to the thousands of cattle who were en-route at the time. Since then, at least 4,631 exported cattle have been sent to the slaughterhouses of Gaza. And countless more to halal slaughter houses in other Muslim countries.
This ongoing cruelty could have been avoided had exporters been complying with regulations. Tragically, the Australian Government’s live export ‘assurance’ system is providing anything but ‘assurance’. The truth is that nobody — not live exporters, nor the Australian government — can guarantee that animals in the live export trade won’t be brutally killed.
The Australian bull in this video was illegally sold, stabbed in the eye, and brutally killed in Gaza. He, along with over 4,000 other Australian cattle, has been sent to the slaughterhouses of Gaza since November. During this time, not one single facility complied with regulations. During this time, the Australian exporter was aware that shocking abuse had occurred in past months. Yet animals continued to be abandoned to this cruelty.
Take action today, and help spare an animal from suffering this brutal fate. Ask your MP to support a phase out of live exports — for jobs, for the economy, and most importantly, for the animals. Click here for more information: Ban Live Export
Dalal Mughrabi is the celebrated terrorist who led the Fatah (Israel’s ‘peace’ partner) terror attack in 1978 that hijacked a bus and killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounded more than 70.
Mughrabi now has a school named in her honor, where the students strive to follow in her terrorist footsteps.
In order to pay off a debt incurred by her mother’s illness, the father of six-year-old Nagma was sold to the family of a 19-year-old to become his wife.
Clarion Project After finding out about the case, U.S. rights groups contacted American Lawyer Kimberly Motley who has been working in Afghanistan for the past five years. Motley was able to raise funds to redeem Nagma and, with the blessings of Nagma’s parents, now intends to put Nagma and her brother into Afghanistan’s National Institute of Music, a school that takes orphans and underprivileged children.
Probe into the plot to replace teachers with fundamentalist Muslims and radical Islamic teachings widens to at least 25 Birmingham schools. Thousands of schoolchildren’s education could have been threatened by a hardline Muslim plot to force out moderate school officials and teachers and replace them with extremists and radical Islamists.
UK Daily Mail It emerged today that 25 Birmingham schools are now being investigated for links to the alleged radicalization plot, and while Birmingham City Council has refused to name the schools, some of which have upwards of 600 students, it means that vast numbers of pupils could have been at risk.
The number of schools allegedly involved rose today from 15 to 25 as Education Secretary Michael Gove is said to have told Ofsted inspectors to fail any school ‘where religious conservatism is getting in the way of learning and a balanced curriculum’.
The original four schools now has risen to 25
This afternoon Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg backed the investigations, saying schools should not be allowed to become ‘silos of segregation’.
As the scale of the alleged plot became apparent, Birmingham City Council appointed a new chief adviser, former head teacher Ian Kershaw, to handle at least 200 complaints received in relation to the ‘Trojan Horse’ alleged plot to take over primary, secondary, and community schools as well as academies in the city.
The unsigned and undated Trojan Horse letter claimed that a small but radical group of Muslims was pursuing its own agenda in the classrooms, with uncooperative headteachers and governors forced out.
It said that the plot had caused ‘a great amount of organised disruption’ in the city, crediting it with forcing a change of leadership at four schools. At the centre of the scandal is Birmingham’s Park View Academy, where it is alleged that £70,000 was spent on loudspeakers to call pupils to Islamic prayers.
Birmingham City Council’s investigation will run beside a separate inquiry by the Department for Education (DfE), and will report back on 15 schools initially next month, with a fuller report due in July.
Headteachers and governors judged to be performing ‘inadequately’ in terms of pushing religious views to the detriment of children’s education may be immediately dismissed.
Since the appearance of the letter in March, anonymous whistle-blowers including former staff have come forward, making claims that boys and girls were segregated in classrooms and assemblies, and sex education was banned.
It was also alleged that non-Muslim staff had been bullied, and in one case it was alleged that the teachings of a firebrand Al Qaeda-linked Muslim preacher praised to pupils.
Birmingham City Council today announced the six-month appointment of Mr Kershaw, managing director of Northern Education, to handle the investigation, and the council said it was also setting up a review group made up of MPs, councillors, police and faith groups.
The council’s leader, Sir Albert Bore, said the investigation was slowed by the two-tier school system, which meant that academies, which are at the centre of the allegations, were answerable not to the local authority but to the DfE, calling the situation ‘frustrating in the extreme’.
And Sir Albert suggested that the alleged Muslim extremist plot may extend beyond Birmingham, saying that his authority had spoken to councils in both Manchester and Bradford. He said: ‘There are certainly issues in Bradford which have similarities with the issues being spoken about in Birmingham.’
Fresh claims have emerged in Manchester and at Bradford’s Laisterdyke Business and Enterprise College and Carlton Bolling College.An Ofsted spokesman said it had not begun inspections there, but did not rule it out.
Sir Albert also said that West Midlands Police, which has reopened a fraud inquiry into one of the schools caught up in the allegations, was still looking into the authorship of the Trojan Horse document, the authenticity of which is still unclear.
One of the schools being investigated over extremist infiltration cancelled its annual visit from Father Christmas last year. Teacher Vicky Hubble, who organized the event at the secular Ladypool Primary School, was allegedly told to cancel it by the new Muslim headmaster, Huda Aslam. He is said to have told her there would be no presents and ‘no mention’ of Jesus being the son of God.
You know indoctrination of radical Islamic ideology is bad in England when Muslim parents are complaining about their children being radicalized by Muslim teachers in public schools
