How CAIR Shaped San Diego’s Public Schools

Government schools in San Diego have decided that the teaching of ONE religion is good—and that the information given to the students should be determined by the proponents of that religion.  That is why San Diego Unified School District did not want the students to know that woman have no rights—to an education, a job or to drive in Sharia law countries.  The School District did not want the students to know that if they refuse to convert to the Islam faith, under Sharia law they should be killed.  That would be disturbing if the students knew the truth.  So, like in other matters, the San Diego School District lied to the students, by omission.

“In July 2016, Hanif Mohebi, CAIR-SD’s Executive Director, lobbied the School Board to adopt an official anti-Muslim bullying plan. Over the past six months, Mohebi has lectured students and teachers on “Islamophobia” at more than a dozen District schools. At these sessions, Mohebi has distributed a pamphlet offering to help Muslim students “file a complaint” against school administrators and to provide students with “resources about your faith…(to)… share with administrators and teachers.” But should Mohebi and CAIR-SD be teaching students their particular brand of Islam?

On social media, Mohebi has encouraged his Facebook followers to support the “cause” of Khalifah al-Akili, a prominent Taliban sympathizer imprisoned for felony possession of a firearm. He warns that “FBI snitches” who “frame our community members unjustly. KNOW that we are watching you.”

In addition, he has circulated videos attacking homosexuality, an article comparing ISIS to Israel, and has published a number of posts attacking “Jewish colonial settlers.”

That is what the so called adults in charge of the San Diego schools did not want the students to know—the facts.  This is why the families are revolting against the school district in San Diego, because it is lying to the students.

Headline: How CAIR Shaped San Diego’s Public Schools

By Susan Ouellette, Middle East Forum, 6/15/17

 

In April 2017, the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) School Board approved a plan to address anti-Muslim bullying in schools. Beginning this fall, students will “learn more about [Islam] in social studies….Schools…will review and vet materials related to Muslim culture and history…and provide resources and material for teachers…and…promote a more positive image of Islam.”  The driving force behind the plan, however, is the Council on American-Islamic Relations – San Diego (CAIR-SD), which has a history of ties to radical Islamists.

CAIR-SD and the SDUSD School Board have a long-standing relationship. In November 2015, the Board commended CAIR-SD for “ten years of teaching students to accept and honor religious and cultural differences,” as well as its partnership with “the District’s Office of Race/Human Relations and Advocacy,” and its involvement “in mediating situations…that involve discrimination.”

In July 2016, Hanif Mohebi, CAIR-SD’s Executive Director, lobbied the School Board to adopt an official anti-Muslim bullying plan. Over the past six months, Mohebi has lectured students and teachers on “Islamophobia” at more than a dozen District schools. At these sessions, Mohebi has distributed a pamphlet offering to help Muslim students “file a complaint” against school administrators and to provide students with “resources about your faith…(to)… share with administrators and teachers.” But should Mohebi and CAIR-SD be teaching students their particular brand of Islam?

On social media, Mohebi has encouraged his Facebook followers to support the “cause” of Khalifah al-Akili, a prominent Taliban sympathizer imprisoned for felony possession of a firearm. He warns that “FBI snitches” who “frame our community members unjustly. KNOW that we are watching you.”

In addition, he has circulated videos attacking homosexuality, an article comparing ISIS to Israel, and has published a number of posts attacking “Jewish colonial settlers.”

Other CAIR-SD leaders have posted inflammatory rhetoric on social media. CAIR-SD official Lallia Allali has lamented the deportation of Sami Al-Araian, a leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in North America.

CAIR-SD has a history of promulgating Islamist ideology and giving platforms to extremist clerics, including Yasir Qadhi, who has said “…this is a part of our religion to stone the adulterer and to chop the head off of the sorcerer and so many other things, and to kill, by the way, the homosexual – this is also our religion.”

CAIR-SD’s tireless lobbying against “Islamophobia” has facilitated its inroads into SDUSD schools. CAIR officials, particularly Mohebi, whose ties to the Board date back at least seven years, appear to enjoy excellent working relationships with Board members and school officials. SDUSD School Board members Kevin Beiser and Sharon Whitehurst-Payne have spearheaded efforts to create a District-wide anti-Muslim bullying plan. Beiser has endorsed the Forum on Religious Freedom, a CAIR-SD organization designed “to support the Muslim Community against Bigotry and Islamophobia.” At a 2016 SDUSD-sponsored diversity event, Nawabi published photos of him with Beiser, SDUSD Superintendent Cindy Marten, and School Board members Whitehurst-Payne and Michael McQuarry.

Beyond its ties with the School Board, CAIR-SD has relationships with at least two other District employees. Kamal Boulazreg, an SDUSD psychologist, and Agin Shaheed, SDUSD’s Race/Human Relations Manager, spoke at a 2014 “Stop Bullying” event sponsored by CAIR-SD and the Islamic Center of San Diego, a mosque with ties to two 9/11 hijackers. In fact, CAIR-SD and Shaheed have an official working relationship, and CAIR-SD’s website features a lengthy, hagiographic profile of him.

In light of CAIR’s extremism, in May, the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund, on behalf of a group of District parents, filed a federal lawsuit to halt the implementation of CAIR’s program. The lawsuit itself may not cool the warm relationship between SDUSD and CAIR-SD, an organization that is not the benign, tolerant, civil rights group it claims to be.

After all, SDUSD does not seem to fazed by CAIR’s notorious designation by federal prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator during the Holy Land Foundation federal terrorism case, nor CAIR-SD’s history of promoting hate speech. As such, and barring a court ruling against the School District, CAIR-SD’s agenda has become the District’s.

    Wake up stupid Americans, just because Islam has a billion followers doesn’t mean it’s not a cult! There is a great site to educate yourself on Islam: http://www.thereligionofpeace.com I have nothing to do with the site other than being a fan of it. At this site you will learn that the prophet Muhammad was not only a common murderer but a child rapist. He hardly bears comparison with Jesus Christ in any way, shape, or form.

  2. The SDUSD administrators might as well be down on the prayer rugs with the rest of the muslims.

    Every damn one of them that supported this travesty should be removed from office immediately.

    Sure sounds like an Establishment Clause case to me. Here’s hoping that FCDF’s suit shuts this down … and nets the plaintiffs a healthy sum of attorneys’ fees payable by CAIR for its active role in this charade.

  4. Are there ANY conservative teachers ANYWHERE in kalifornia? It looks like none, anywhere!! The next time some brain dead academic liberal teacher tells you how important diversity is, ask how many conservatives are in their sociology department!

    Well, what is the atheist group, Freedom From Religion going to do about this infringement upon the First Amendment?

    “Islam is not a religion; it is a political system which means the state has an interest in protecting their political rights as well as their safety.” If Islam is going to call itself a religion–which it is not–then the state must not endorse the teaching of its tenets.

    See, this is how incredibly evil things have become.

    Last, if parents would just tell their children how to respond to this it would dilute the effectiveness of this sham.

    Perhaps some historical perspective is useful for those inclined to learn from history or recover from politically correct college courses in such, rather than retreat in uninformed denial.

    For 1400 years or since the death of Muhammad in 632, there has been a relentless jihad against all the nonbelievers of Islam (Christians, agnostics, Hindus, atheists, homosexuals, etc) which persists to this day and includes thousands of Christians fleeing present day Iraq. Prior to the birth of Muhammad, nearly all of the Middle East, Iran, Turkey, et al. were Christian. In just 100 years after Muhammad’s death Muslim armies conquered all of North Africa, Iran, et al. and were within 100 miles of Paris itself.

    If it were not for the eight Crusades, that occurred well afterwards, all of Europe and beyond would now be facing Mecca. The Crusades, limited responses to these copious Islamic assaults, were measures taken in self defense and lasted less than 200 years; motivation for this profuse Islamic aggression comes into focus when one considers that “Islam” in English translates to “submission”.

    Before & after the Crusades, here is a brief chronology that also includes the many Muslim offensives that occurred…..

    Year:
    570 Birth of Mohammed, with much of North Africa, Turkey, Persia, el al. Christian.
    632 Death of Mohammed
    640 Alexandria captured and the great library destroyed
    668 First attack to take Constantinople
    732 Muslim armies within 100 miles of Paris
    846 Muslims plundered the churches of St Peter & Paul in Rome.
    996-1021 3,000 Coptic churches in Egypt were destroyed (a 25 year episode)
    1009 Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem destroyed.
    1091 Muslims drove Christian priests out of Jerusalem.

    1095-1291 Time span of the 8 Crusades (a defensive action)

    1453 Constantinople conquered (assaults commenced in 668)
    1526 Fall of Hungary (one of many on European countries, as noted further down)
    1529 Ottoman forces defeated in Vienna.

    As many are aware, Muslims invaded and occupied Spain for 800 years, here are other countries invaded by Muslim armies with their occupation times…

    Portugal – 600 years
    Greece – 500 years
    Bulgaria 500 years
    Rumania – 400 years
    Serbia – 400 years
    Sicily – 300 years
    Hungary – 150 years

    Additionally the Muslims fought in Austria, Italy, Malta, Cyprus, Armenia, Poland, Georgia, Ukraine and parts of Russia. The crusaders primarily sought to regain lost territories, whereas the Muslims, even after the Crusades, wanted to occupy Europe in order to Islamize it (as is in progress today with Muslims now living in Europe).

    For all this, it is notable that in Islam’s theology there is no recognition of repentiveness or forgiveness. Unlike the Bible, the Koran does not instruct its adherents to repent and beg forgiveness, even though it says Allah is “the beneficent, the merciful”.
    Hence, Muslim or Arab historians, when writing about the Crusades, do not fault Muslims for what their ancestors did before and after the Crusades, or does one find any Muslims making pusillanimous apologies…..only uninformed and naive Christians appear capable of presenting such ill-considered apologies.

    A final note: Islam is not merely a religion but an ideology that also encompasses a full body of civil law, also known as Shariah. Shariah law is imposed on all living within or surviving an Islamic conquest, a serious problem, for nonbelievers as they are relegated to 2nd class status and have no right to bear witness in court against any Muslim. Women have only 1/2 the right of men in court. Muslim men can marry non-Muslim women, but Muslim women are forbidden to marry outside their faith. Muslim apostates are condemned to death; joining the Muslim faith is rather similar to joining the Mafia. From a female perspective, I can only view such a ‘faith’ within this body of law as theocratic misogyny.

    Parents, Students, Administrators most likely have never met a Christian woman from the Middle East, Sophie has something to say to you about your embracing Islam in your School. Deception/CAIR has no right to force you into subjugation which Sharia is, there is more about Islam you won’t hear about except from those that have lived it, Sophie wants to help envision living under these conditions, please share.

    So why is it that religion is not allowed in our schools by law, yet Islam “religion” is being allowed? And Islam is a cult anyway, so now we are conditioning our students to accept cultism as an okay religion? The difference in my book between religion and cults is that religion is personal choice to join and also to leave. In a cult, you are enticed in and can’t get out without a great deal of misery. With the Islam cult, there is no misery, just death. The infiltration of this Islamic nonsense is directly related to the cowardly school administrators in this country who are scared to death by islamist bullies. God help us!
