Outrage as high school recites Pledge in Arabic saying ‘One Nation Under Allah’

| May 3 2013

By Janet Levy

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a Muslim Brotherhood front group that supports Hamas.  CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism funding trial in U.S. history – the Texas Holy Land Foundation Hamas-funding trial that took place in Dallas from 2007-2009.

Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic with the substitution of “Allah” for G-d is an attempt to sanitize and normalize Islam to win student acceptance.

The CSCOPE and Common Core curriculums promote Islam and give short shrift to Judaism and Christianity.  Students are taught that “Allah is the Almighty G-d” and that Christianity is a cult.  (Islam refers to Jews as “apes and pigs.”)

The supremacy of Islam is being established in the minds of your children.  GET INVOLVED!  Put a stop to the Islamization of our beloved country if you value freedom, justice and tolerance.  Pass “American Laws for American Courts” in your state.

Islam is a totalitarian, misogynistic, triumphalist hate ideology that seeks to establish a worldwide Islamic government – a caliphate – under Islamic doctrine or shariah and dismantle all non-Islamic governments on earth.  The goal is for shariah to replace the Constitution as no laws must exist but Allah’s laws.

The article:

Fury is brewing at Rocky Mountain High School, in Colorado, after a multicultural student group were encouraged to recite the Pledge of Allegiance over the loudspeaker in Arabic – replacing ‘one nation under God’ with ‘one nation under Allah’.

Following Monday’s pledge, Principal Tom Lopez has been inundated with complaints from outraged parents concerned that saying the Pledge in any language other than English is unpatriotic.

Standing by his controversial decision, Principal Lopez has said that despite the irate telephone calls and emails, he is not in any way or form trying to push an Islamic agenda at the Fort Collins school.

If this were my daughter's school, I would not rest until this principal was fired, and his credentials revoked.  Anyone with such a shocking lack of judgment as this should not be permitted around other people's children.

i believe something was reposted recently - not all muslims are terrorists but ALL terrorist ARE muslim !  - the fundamentalists do NOT come in peace but to stir and create racial hatred - if we behaved as they did we would be arrested. do you ever  hear their imams & cultural leaders condemning the bombings & attrocities? IF they cannot live in peace amongst us..... go from whence you came...is there not a biblical  comment?...go forth and multiply?

Loyalty is the crux. Muslims are loyal to Islam. They are not loyal to the state under whose laws, protection and succor they live. Not loyal to their co-workers, neighbors, family [contact with apostate or unconverted family is limited to prosletization], moral principles, or even their biological species. It’s all about them and their conspiracy to feed off everyone else’s plate.

I credit the insertion of "under God" into our pledge of allegiance in 1954 with my questioning of the unquestioned acceptance of the existence of spirits. I was eight.

 

There is no such thing as a god outside the collective delusion of humankind. All other simians HAVE a head monkey and the old gray-back can be seen any time, scuffling around just like everyone else. That the overwhelming majority of our species doesn't understand how different and special we are, and can't shake the notion that there is an <i>uber</i> creature in charge of everything, testifies that humankind is unsuited for perpetuated existence as the planet's nascent species. There are simply too few thinkers and too many believers and we are doomed, doomed because we are overall too stupid to survive.

 

FWIW, I have very recently been declared <i>non-grata</i> as a blogger on jihadwatch. The facade of tolerance and support for the universal  freedom of speech preached there is appealing. But, it doesn't apply to atheists.

They don't want peace. As soon as they become the majority, muslims are going to ruin our country just like they ruined their own. Nothing good will come of letting them in. muslims cannot be trusted

It's ridiculous to believe that Islam will some day integrate peacefully into western civilizations. History has shown time and again that wherever Islam goes death, terrorism and intolerance soon follow. It MUST NOT be allowed into any school regardless of the left-wingers forcing their Islamo-frielndly beliefs on everyone else.

 

You only have to look at the harm being caused by Islam across the pond in Europe. I've spent a lot of time there, particularly Germany, Sweden and the UK on business and each time I visit I leave utterly bewildered by the changes being made to accommodate an ideology that, by its very nature, hates the host country it has invaded.

 

Can I just ask a question though - why do you refer to Christianity's God as G-d above, yet you spell Allah in full? Am I missing something here?

This would be appropriate in an elective class in the Arabic language, as I learned the Pledge in German when I was in High School nearly sixty years ago.  I take it that this was not in an Arabic class.  I wonder if this school even goes to the trouble of an elective class in Modern Standard Arabic?

 @GregoryConterio Why do I feel as though such a fight is in my future? I hope not, but it seems hard to avoid.

 

For example, my kid came home asking us about Kwanzaa, a "holiday" that has no traditional antecedent and was simply pasted together from a number of disperate African traditions by Maulana Karenga, a criminal who held a woman captive and tortured her with hot curling irons. It isn't even celebrated by a particularly large percentage of black Americans, let alone Americans as a whole. And yet my kid's school has elevated this to the point where my son is singing songs about it in the holiday performance and coming home asking, "do we celebrate Kwanzaa?"

This is, of course, an excellent question. When Baruch Goldstein shot up a mosque full of people, Jews poured into the streets, not to give away candy or celebrate, but to condemn his acts. Muslims engage in attacks like Goldstein's every day, and it's crickets as far as the ear can hear.

Jake, I have no idea what the event may have been to get you banned at Jihadwatch, but if your remarks here are representative of the sort of thing you routinely say, perhaps that contains a clue.  Here, you call everyone who "believes" delusional, and too stupid to survive.  It may not have occurred to you, but you are engaged in every bit as much of a faith-based belief as the most devout Christian, and are in fact a more aggressive proselytizer than any Christian I have personally known.  Believing that there is NOT a God or creator is every bit as much based on un-provable faith as belief in God.  And there is certainly nothing at all new about showing such open disdain for everyone who does not share your faith.  I am not sure if anyone has ever been banned from WFP, or if they even have a policy for banning people, But if you were to develop a more Christian-like level of tolerance, and not so aggressively insult everyone who doesn't share your belief, you might find you aren't getting banned elsewhere.

 @Nancy32 Regarding your question, Janet Levy may respond, but I believe the practice of writing God as G_d is out of deference to the Third Commandment not to take the name of God in vain.  

 

In Old Testament Hebrew, the name of God is not "God" per se.  It is more like 'Yehovah' if pronounced literally in Hebrew, but when read it is commonly pronounced "adonai" which actually means "our lord".

 

You'll also hear Jews say "Boruch Ha'Shem" which is meant to bless God but which transliterates to "bless the name".  Again it's to avoid using the actual name of God.  Some, apparently for additional deference to the 3rd commandment, will not even write "God" in English but use "G_d" instead.  Some Christians as well as Jews follow that practice.

 

I'm no expert on this, and there may be some readers who can confirm or correct what I've written here.

 @GregoryConterio Yeah, I have to agree with Greg here. Frankly, I feel a certain curiosity about the rest of your views, and about the kinds of things you might have written about at Jihadwatch. I suspect that there are numerous areas about which we agree. Unfortunately, your approach vis-a-vis religion is simply off-putting, and appears to indicate a possible fixation that may mar your expression of other important ideas.

 @jakearuni  @GregoryConterio All groups have declining birthrates, though. They're even dropping in 3rd world countries, in Mexico, and in Muslim countries. The West is definitely further along that train, but everyone's headed the same direction.

<i>Here, you call everyone who "believes" delusional, and too stupid to survive.</i>

 

Well, yes and no. Yes, the believers are delusional. It is the rate of incidence of them (say, 19 of 20?) that renders our species too <i>stupid</i> to survive. Why? Because religionists demand that we implement and maintain social policies inimical to our biological survival, and I specifically mean those of demographic consequence. When I see people protesting in front of a Planned Parenthood office, what are they demanding? Unplanned parenthood?

 

There is not one environmental problem that is not demographically driven. Yet, religionists freely state that "children are the glory of God" and that is all they care about. Anything anyone else may care about doesn't matter.

 

Look, please, at Western Europe. Those kind and thoughtful people were behaving such that the demographics were favorable: fertility rates were (and still are, for indigenous Europeans) below stasis, say 1.8 children per family. But, those Europeans voluntarily hosted Muhammedan religionists, who are ideologically unkind and unencumbered by thoughtfulness, bringing their 8+ children per mother birthrate with them and replacing the Europeans on that basis. And, BTW, they'd like the Sharia legally implemented, so uteri presently laying idle can be put to Allah's use, pumping out thirty plus progeny for every Muhammedan daddy.

 

Over-running the world with their inbred whelp is their deliberate policy. Their uterus cannons are pointed our way and they are firing.

 

I oppose this. Anyone who condones it endorses it, and is, just like them, the biological enemy of our species. I give humankind two more centuries (Stephen Hawking apparently does too: he wants us to begin planning to send genetic material to other worlds), which is what we have left if social policies unacceptable to religionists are not implemented. I want demographic measures and goals to be set as national policy. I want people in political power obsessed with what is important. I want no pandering to nonsense.

 

Until then, we are building a world where the living will envy the dead, followed by oblivion.
