Stealth Islamic Propaganda Shown to Six Million American Students

By Larissa Scott / American Thinker


On May 16 and 17 of 2012, Channel One Network, a national distributor of educational videos and newscasts viewed daily by over 8,000 middle and high schools, aired a two-part video series, titled "Young and Muslim in America" and "Islam in America."

In "Young and Muslim in America: How being a part of Islam changed ten years ago, Part 1," students watch as Muhtasham Sifaat, 18, kneels on a prayer rug inside an empty classroom.  His voiceover explains how he moved around a lot when he was younger, but Islam has given him stability.  What is not revealed is that Mr. Sifaat is a political activist serving as a chapter president of the Muslim Students Association (MSA), one of the most radical Muslim Brotherhood front groups in America.

The MSA pledge states: "Allah is my lord.  Islam is my life.  The Koran is my guide.  The Sunna is my practice.  Jihad is my spirit.  Righteousness is my character.  Paradise is my goal.  I enjoin what is right.  I forbid what is wrong.  I will fight against oppression.  And I will die to establish Islam."

Kyle Smith, 22, gives an overview of the five pillars of Islam before the narrator explains:
Kyle, who's president of his university's Muslim Students Association, grew up in a Roman Catholic family, but converted to Islam three years ago after searching for meaning in his life (italics mine)...two of his friends led him to the religion.
Doesn't searching for meaning in life describe almost every American adolescent?  Presenting an idealized, whitewashed image of Islam and its followers, and showing how converting to Islam helps those who are lost and confused, this programming is nothing short of a disguised recruitment video pushing a religion in a public school setting.

The airing of "Islam in America: How being Muslim has changed since 9/11, Part 2" on May 17 begins with a news update on the Trayvon Martin case, which deals with the alleged racial profiling of a black teenager.  Coincidentally, the video that follows compares "Flying While Muslim" to "Driving While Black."  Students learn about Amany Killawi,19, who struggles to board airplanes:
[H]aving to be checked at the airport a couple of times is definitely not comfortable, especially if you're Muslim.  I often joke if you think driving while black is tough, try Muslim while flying.  Because it's really, really tough.
Zana Lee, 14 and wearing hijab, is filmed walking into a store, stopping in front of a candy display, and subtly pointing to a bag of Skittles.  Her voice-over:
I do think that Muslims are discriminated here in America...sometimes it happens to me.  Sometimes I could be shopping in the store, or just getting some candy from the corner store and I could just look up at the cashier and she can look at me in a certain way, and it just kinda hurts sometimes.
Since Skittles brand candy has already become part of the Trayvon Martin media narrative, portraying a hijabed Muslima shopping for Skittles at a corner store looks more like a manipulative re-enactment of the Trayvon Martin incident, designed to reinforce the victimology trope of racial profiling.
The narrator picks up the story:
These young people say they represent the majority of Muslims here in America.  Not the extremists.
These young girls in the video may not be extremists, but it doesn't take much to see how they are being used as figurative human shields by two just-as-innocent-looking activists of the MSA -- a patently extremist organization.  According to USA Today, NYPD "spokesman Paul Browne provided a list of 12 people arrested or convicted on terrorism charges in the United States and abroad who had once been members of Muslim student associations, which the NYPD referred to as MSAs."

Despite their efforts to radicalize the rest of the Muslim population, they do not represent the majority -- yet.  Their claim is false, pretentious, and deliberately misleading.

We know of this episode only because parents complained about their children having been forced to watch it.  Given the zero-tolerance policies toward Christian prayer in public school, forcing students to watch Islamic evangelizing is beyond mind-boggling.

This case is not unique; in fact, it is consistent with the Islamist methods and ideology.  Last year, Hamas-linked CAIR Tampa Director Hassan Shibly proselytized Islam in a Tampa high school, of which we also initially learned from a complaint by a parent.  It led to protests by local parents and organizations, such as Florida Family Association, followed by a series of school board meetings in which it was decided to establish a workshop reviewing the qualifications of future speakers.

But that was only about one school in Florida.  The "educational" TV broadcast in question was force-fed to 8,000 public schools nationwide, which makes it 8,000 times worse -- and the parents have no recourse in this battle for the hearts and minds of their children.

Says David Caton of Florida Family Association: "Channel One Network never addresses the fact that Islam is more than a religion.  They never mention Islam is a radical political movement that seeks government dominion along with their oppressive Sharia law.   They never mention that radical Muslims have seized Sharia control over Egypt and five other countries during the last year."

In today's climate of political correctness and media blackout, American citizens seem to have no other course of action than to generate enough public outcries to make their objections heard.  For example, since Channel One Network was gracious enough to lend MSA the pulpit, it would be reasonable to demand that they at least give equal airtime to Christian, Jewish, and other religious organizations.

Florida Family Association is already protesting this attempt at nationwide Islamic recruitment by creating an e-mail campaign directed at Channel One Network and its parent companies: Alloy, Inc. and ZelnickMedia Corporation.  It's a start.

Why The Word “Tyrant” Accurately Describes Obama


King Obama SC Why the word Tyrant accurately describes Obama
“Sic Semper Tyrannis”, latin for “Thus Always to Tyrants,“ is the rallying cry against tyranny dating back to the Roman Empire with the utterance of this phrase by Marcus Junius Brutus upon the assassination of Julius Caesar.  This simple phrase has been used by countless European nationals as a cry to arms for independence from their oppressive monarchs, as well as others down through the ages since first spoken two thousand years ago.  To give an American context to this phrase, John Wilkes Booth immortalized it as he leapt to the stage from the Presidential Box after mortally wounding Abraham Lincoln at Fords Theater 147 years ago, and it is the motto for the state of Virginia.

Throughout history, man has always sought self-determination as a God-given or natural right as they struggled against the rule of man through kings, royalty, and monarchs.  This nation was founded upon the principle that man, given the ability, the will, and means to do so, could flourish under self-rule and the rule of law.  Flourish, we have; the amount of economic growth and wonders this nation has seen in its short existence of only 236 years is astounding and has not been rivaled in history.

Many wonder at how this came about that we have stood in the belief of personal freedom to champion the individual, the cornerstone of our Republic above all else.  We have accomplished this by creating a unique identify that embraces all, while giving none dominion over others.  Our history is not blemish free, with the stain of slavery and oppression of the Indian Nations on our national honor.  We have endured, being true to our founding principles by righting these injustices with the blood of our ancestors shed in battle as this is the only way these sins can be paid.

One seminal danger that the Founders sought to address was that our President would never have divided loyalties with the simple requirement that our president be a natural born citizen as enumerated in Article II, Sec. 1 of our Constitution.  These men were wise beyond their ability to foresee the future, though keen to realize the frailty of mere men to govern themselves.

What does it mean to be a “natural born citizen” for the president?  The historical context means that one has certain duties bound to themselves and their nation to act in the best interest of all its citizens as they mark their service to the nation while shunning any allegiance to another.  Recognizing that there is a hereditary distinction requiring both parents to be citizens  differs from an ordinary or naturalized citizen, these wise men would not have otherwise placed this requirement amongst the pages of our Constitution!

The concept of “natural born citizen” is being faced in a manner that our founders never dreamed would happen; that a man would rise to usurp the office of president that would tear down the very fabric and framework of our Nation.

Our founders believed in the possibility that day would come to challenge this principle, making this a national security issue, so they placed this frail, meager, and humble requirement into the framework of our Government.   We are now facing that day with ruin of our nation’s economy by reckless spending of the nation’s treasure that is fully spent and requiring even more.  Signs of our decline are practically the same as Brutus eloquently spoke and are shown by the following:

-Authorizing the borrowing of revenues against the future, though spending it in the present is dangerous and foolhardy, practiced without any restriction of sound fiscal management.

-Division of our nation by a president that is using wealth, race, gender, creed, class distinction, sexual orientation, and political ideology to create doubt and fear in the nation’s citizens while advocating another vision for our nation, solely of his creation.

-Shrouding of the president’s identity of his past thoughts, deeds, actions and credentials by not allowing any scrutiny of his bona-fides by this nation citizens.  He alone creates the narrative that he wishes to be seen, and only that narrative which has been malleable, embellished, and fabricated to suit his current fancy.
 
Too many judges and courts have been all too willing to assist him in this shameless endeavor.

-The president declaring to a sovereign State Court, after being served a valid subpoena from this court, that their demands are not applicable to him, as he seeks reelection within the State of Georgia and that he is above the rule of law.

-Creation of a tax system that forces 51% of the nation’s citizens to pay federal income taxes while the rest either pay no federal taxes or receive more than they paid in benefits.  He does this while manipulating the definition of citizens that are in poverty, further straining these all too few taxpayers as they are wrung of their last dime to pay ever increasing amounts of taxes to the indolent.

-Usurping the powers of the other two separate but equal branches of our government by redefinition of laws and using regulatory powers to thwart the legislative and judicial branch purview into the office of president.  And using signing statements rather than veto power granted to him by the Constitution to subvert legislation by his own hand.

-Deliberately defying and usurping the authority of congressional oversight by making unconstitutional appointments of secretaries and commissioners to agencies of the federal government while they are in session.

-Appointment of Czars who have overlapping authority to cabinet level positions that lack any congressional approval or oversight, making their actions absolute without recourse against them by Congress, the courts, or the people.

-By passing final and absolute judgment upon the nation’s citizens without their 5th Amendment rights to due process of law, and denying them the ability to face their accusers in open court.  By summarily executing these citizens in defiance of the Constitution with the use of secret panels.

-Granting of Constitutional rights and requiring a Miranda warning be given to this nation’s sworn enemy when captured on foreign battlefields.  The Geneva Convention designates these belligerents as illegal combatants and are not accorded any rights under this Treaty.  However, they are given these rights over our citizens by the granting of due process of law, while denying the same to our citizens.

-Designation of the entire nation as a battle zone with authorization to use military assets in a law enforcement role sweeping aside the exclusive police powers granted to the several states by the Constitution.  This designation has the authority to arrest citizens by military forces and subject them to indefinite confinement without trial or charges, causing the abolishment of Habeas Corpus and Posse Comitatus, as long standing Constitutional guarantees to our nation’s citizens from abuse of process and power of the federal government.

-Callous, wanton, and reckless spending of the nation’s treasure upon sycophants that fawn upon this president to fill his election coffers with their lucre; in deference to his duty to safeguard the treasury to the benefit of all our citizens versus dispensation to the select few that curry his momentary favor.

-Allowing corrupt law enforcement policies and practices that caused the death and destruction of hundreds if not thousands of a neighboring nation’s citizens without their knowledge or consent, with illegal arms sent across their border as a guise, impetus, and artifice to curtail our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

Electing a president with divided loyalties has hastened these events and the weakening of our nation.  The wisdom of the founders can only be embraced while we are forced to endure these inequities and injustice as a debasement of our freedom and heritage.

These are the acts of a wanton and craven Tyrant and Dictator, and it is up to each and every citizen to stand against the deliberate corruption of our founding principles. These things will test our commitment to freedom, justice, and liberty, and it is each patriot’s duty to see that he does not succeed!

Op-ed:
A special day to honor American heroes 
By: Diane Sori

What is a hero...a hero is man or woman of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his or her brave deeds, fortitude, and noble qualities.

In other words...a Soldier, Sailor, Marine or Airman.

Tomorrow is Memorial Day, a day to remember and honor all those brave heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice in our nation's service...a special day where a grateful nation says thank you.

Memorial Day is also a day to honor and say thank you to our Veterans, those heroes who by the grace of God made it home, who are sometimes forgotten in the shuffle of everyday life.  

This Memorial Day we must not forget to keep our brave men and women who are currently fighting overseas in our thoughts and prayers for they are the ones who are now keeping us safe and free at home.

A little history...Memorial Day started as a day to honor Union soldiers who died during the Civil War. After World War I it was extended to include all men and women who died in any war or military action.  Known originally as Decoration Day, the current name did not come into being until after World War II. Decoration Day and then Memorial Day were always on May 30, regardless of the day of the week.  In 1968, the Uniform Holidays Bill was passed as part of a move to use federal holidays to create three-day weekends.  Since 1971, Memorial Day has been officially observed on the last Monday in May. 

On Memorial Day it’s tradition to fly the American flag at half-mast from dawn until noon. Many volunteers place a small American flag on the graves of the fallen who are laid to rest in national cemeteries all across our country.  Also, in many cities and towns across America, Memorial Day Parades honor both the fallen and those serving in our military today.

While tomorrow there will be picnics, barbeques, and parties galore, please don’t forget that while you are having fun and enjoying the day, that what you are doing was only made possible by those who sacrificed their lives in the name of freedom. 

So now I leave you with this, A Soldiers Prayer, whose words really honor ALL who’ve served.

A Soldier's Prayer...
The soldier stood and faced his God which must always come to pass...
He hoped his shoes were shining just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, you soldier, how shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?  To My Church have you been true?"
The soldier squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't...
Because those of us who carry guns can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays and at times my talk was tough,
And sometimes I've been violent, because the streets are awfully tough.
But, I never took a penny that wasn't mine to keep...
Though I worked a lot of overtime when the bills got just too steep,
And I never passed a cry for help, though at times I shook with fear,
And sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place among the people here...
They never wanted me around except to calm their fears.
If you've a place for me here, Lord, It needn't be so grand,
I never expected or had too much, but if you don't, I'll understand."
There was a silence all around the throne where the saints had often trod...
As the soldier waited quietly, for the judgment of his God,
"Step forward now you soldier,
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."

 
Dedicated To All That Serve... God Bless America!
