The “Five Pillars” of Islam â€“ charity, fasting, prayer, belief and pilgrimage â€“ are being taught to public school students in Nyssa, Ore., under the guise of world history, the school has confirmed to WND, even though a parent raised a complaint about the same teachings a year ago.
The future of American Schools?
In a letter to parents following the concerns that were raised at that point, Supt. Don Grotting and other school officials told parents that the text called “Journey Across Time” features a chapter on “Islamic Civilizations.”
As part of that, “class activities have included guest speakers (including an American soldier serving in Iraq and a practicing Muslim woman who is an American citizen living in Mountain Home) who talked about geography, dress, climate, religion, economy and culture and student skits, in which students prepare and perform three- to five-minute skits about the tenets of Islam belief: charity, fasting, prayer, belief, and pilgrimage.”
Janine Weeks, the curriculum director at the school, this week told WND that the curriculum, and class activities, are continuing.
“We’ve not made any changes,” she said. “The content standards require that we present information about the rise of Islam in the context of world history.”
Hmmm, why would that be? Surely that has nothing to do with Islam, because Islam is a ‘Religion of Peace’- right?

TEL AVIV â€“ The United Nations has initiated a program to provide “job training” and “family assistance” purportedly to integrate into Palestinian society terrorists granted amnesty in July by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.
Many of the terrorists now slated for aid have boasted of violating their amnesty agreement by refusing to disarm and reportedly continuing to attack the Jewish state.
Israel has information some of the pardoned terrorists have been coordinating activities with the Lebanese Hezbollah terrorist organization.
In a gesture to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Olmert granted the official amnesty to 178 West Bank-based members of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, Fatah’s declared military wing, which took responsibility along with the Islamic Jihad terror group for every suicide bombing in Israel the past two years.
Experts say terrorists eye your local school
WASHINGTON â€“ Three years after Muslim terrorists attacked a school in Beslan in North Ossetia-Alania within the Russian Federation resulting in 396 deaths and 437 injuries, terrorism and law enforcement experts say most U.S. schools have not prepared at all to deal with the possibility of such an assault.
More disturbingly, they say, such attacks are most definitely being prepared and rehearsed in Islamic terrorist camps around the world.
In videotapes captured in Afghanistan, al-Qaida terrorists practiced the takeover of a school â€“ issuing commands in English, separating children into manageable groups and killing anyone who offered resistance. Some hostages were take to rooftops, dangled over the edge, then shot for the sake of cameras and onlookers.
In Iraq, the floor plans of several schools in Virginia, Texas and New Jersey were found in the possession of captured terrorists.
Meanwhile, in the U.S. law enforcement authorities have uncovered what appear to be probing missions by terrorists attempting to get jobs as school bus drivers and making inquiries about armed security personnel in schools.
Muslim gunman Sulejman Talovic was loaded for bear in February when he opened fire on shoppers in a Salt Lake City mall. He was armed with a shotgun, a .38 pistol and a backpack full of ammunition. He killed five and would have kept killing if an alert off-duty police officer hadn’t returned fire and helped stop him.
Suleiman was given a heroes funeral back in Kosovo, just like the London bombers, who had tens of thousands attend their funerals. We are being suicidally stupid.
More incidents on Sudden Jihad Syndrome here
In March, the FBI and Homeland Security Department distributed a bulletin to law enforcement across the country warning that Muslims with “ties to extremist groups” are signing up to be school bus drivers. They also noted “recent suspicious activity” by foreigners who either drive school buses or are licensed to drive them.
Common sense and the law overrule insanity: A judge shows backbone in Sweden
Sweden’s Chancellor of Justice has ruled that a cartoon drawn by a Swedish artist depicting the Prophet Mohammed as a dog, subsequently published in a local Swedish newspaper in August, does not constitute incitement to racial hatred.
Three Swedish Muslim organisations had requested the justice chancellor to press racial hatred charges against the Nerikes Allehanda newspaper and its editor, who wrote an article alongside the drawing defending press freedoms.
In a statement the chancellor said while many Muslims could interpret the cartoon as offensive, neither the drawing nor the article, could be proven to show contempt for any ethnic group.
The publication of the cartoon depicting the Prophet Mohammed as a dog-like sculpture decorating a traffic roundabout, or traffic circle, prompted official complaints from Egypt, Iran and Pakistan.
