Tacit Approval From US Liberals For Islamic Indoctrination In US Schools.

That's the usual complaint, with US liberals, they'd rather see indocrination with a faith that preaches the murder of those who do not accept its teachings. (Image source)

Some schools in US State Of Virginia are closed today (18 December, 2015), because parents objected to what they see as a blatant exercise in Islamic indoctrination by the state education system. As this is a British blog (though we attract many US readers and have followings in most developed nations, it should be pointed out that the US Constitution's clauses on the separation of church and state forbid the promotion of any specific religious teaching, in fact US liberals tend to get their knickers in a twist over signs in classrooms that show the motto "In God we trust."

In spite of that, teachers in the liberal dominated Virginia education department saw no problem with including in a ninth grade (about a ninth grade (age 14 - 15) geography assignment that required students to copy the Shahada, an Islamic statement of faith that says, “There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”

Parent Kimberly Herndon said she was "shocked that this was sent home, shocked that this was in the schools [and] shocked that this was right here in our small town," local news channel reported. Herndon added she felt her rights as a parent had been violated.

Other parents joined Ms Herndon in objecting to the World Geography curriculum project, because they are aware how even the most innocuous reference to Christian beliefs has been made the subject of witch hunts by liberal media organisations and commentators. The felt was was being presented as part of a geography lesson was a blatant piece if Islamic propaganda. The outcry resulted in mainstream media coverage, for the story. Because of this, the school division began to receive numerous phone calls and e mail messages. As a result of those communications, the Sheriff’s Office and the school division coordinated to increase police presence at Augusta County schools and to monitor those communications. To aviod the school becoming the target of politically motivated attacks a decision was taken to close the school.

Augusta County Public Schools issued the following statement about the closure, which it noted was decided upon with the recommendation of law enforcement:

Augusta County Schools and all administrative offices will be closed Friday, December 18, 2015.

All after school activities for Thursday, December 17th are canceled.

You can read more on the story HERE. What interested us about the incident is that not one squeak of protest about the schools actions has been seen on mainstream media sites or from liberal bloggers and alternative news sites. Hypocrisy is a feature of left wing politics in Britain and Europe as well as the USA so this is not surprising to us. It is worth reminding our left leaning friends who are so anxious to suck up to foreigners living in our communities, they are eager to hold those outsiders to different standards than they demand from people of their own nationality and culture of something written by Marcus Tullius Cicero around 2100 years ago.

"Since our ancestors came down from the hills ten thousand years ago and learned to live in communities under the rule of law, it has been understood there can only be one law and it mut apply equally to all."

So why, you liberals and socialists, if it is wrong for a school to say The Lord's Prayer, then surely it must be just as unacceptable to present pupils with The Shahada. And it was not presented as part of a comparative religion lesson, but as if it is a statement of fact. If the law says no religion in classrooms, that means no religion, no exceptions for Islam just because the President and his Chewbacca lookalike wife happens to be fans.

FOOTNOTE: I can understand the USA's ban on religion in class, it is after all a multi cultural society. But as an Englishman, probably the most irreligious nation on earth, I have to say regular lessons in comparative religion in school did not indoctrinate my generation or the ones that have followed.

We like stories about bureaucrats abusing their authority and about schoolteachers (especiall head teachers) letting their inner fascist out of the closet.

Fears Over Threat To Sovereignty Could Wreck EU European Army Plan

by Arthur Foxake

No they're not Star Wars Imperial Stormtroopers, they are German soldiers assigned to an international peacekeeping force, showing how like Imperial Stormtroopers a pan European army might look (Image source)

Although the idea of a European Army has attracted wide criticism from people who understand the thrast to the sovereignty and identity of individual nations European Union, heavyweights France (cheese eating surrender monkeys) and Germany (erstwhile master race), the main supporters of merging all the EU's 28 member states into a single, federal Islamic republic under Sharia Law, on Thursday backed a new and highly controversial proposal for a pan European border control force with powers to unilaterally deploy to member states unable or unwilling to manage their borders.

While perfidious Gaul and the duplicitous Bosche (not French and German people, you must understand but the elites who select themselves as definers of the national character) say this border force would control the flow of illegal immigrants to Europe, we only have to examine the track records of the socialist Crapauds and Krauts to understand the more likley outcome would be that Fritz and Francois would stand and wave through rapists, murderers, AK47 toting Islamic rage boys and suicide vest wearing Islamist nutters,

The border and coast guard project is advertised as being chiefly aimed at protecting Europe’s external borders in countries like Greece and Italy as they struggle to manage the arrival of hundreds of thousands of people fleeing conflict or poverty for better lives in Europe. But a codicil to the proposal presents the idea idea that the agency, commanded from Brussels, could send ships, planes or other military assets to a country even if it opposes the deployment. This is the fly in the ointment that has reviving old fears about a loss of national sovereignty to unelected officials at the EU’s executive Commission in Brussels. It has also sparked speculation that the increasingly dictatorial Angela Merkel is steering Germany back towards its old bad habits, and the weak cowardly socialists of the French government are willing to settle for the role of sidekick to the squarehead bully boys.

Countries further north in Europe like Germany and Sweden — the preferred destinations of many migrants — are keen to have tighter controls to ease the flow of people, as is France.

“The external borders must be protected. I’m entirely in agreement with the proposal from the European Commission on a border guard,” French President Francois Hollande told reporters at the EU summit in Brussels.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel also underlined that she “very strongly supports” the plan.

Before chairing the summit, European Council President Donald Tusk acknowledged that the border agency is a "most controversial idea" but said that passport-free travel in the 26-nation Schengen area would be compromised if Europe’s outside borders are porous. "Europe cannot remain vulnerable when Schengen states are not able to effectively protect their borders", he said So what would The Tusk rather have, Poland controlling its own borders or a German army of occupation. Given what happened between 1938 and 1945 I somehow don't think Poles would be very happy about inviting armerd German soldiers into their country.

The new Army of the European Reich European border agency would have a standing reserve force of at least 1,500 border guards that could be sent to EU border crossings within three days, rather than relying on time-consuming calls to nations for volunteers during emergencies. But for some, the plan touches at the very heart of national identity — a country’s right to decide who or what can be deployed on its territory — and Greece, Italy, Croatia and Hungary were expected to oppose it.

A senior EU diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity because no decisions have yet been made, said it was unlikely that the European Commission would ever order the border guard to a country that objected, as that would mean imposing an occupying army.

The proposal is just the start of a potentially long and divisive legislative process. Still, the EU has planned a 2016 budget for the agency of 238 million euros ($260 million).
