Sharia lessons for pupils, six: Minister’s concern after BBC investigates 40 ‘weekend schools’

By James Slack/Daily Mail

Children in Britain are being taught brutal Sharia law punishments, including how  to hack off a criminal’s hand or foot. So-called ‘weekend schools’ for Muslim pupils as young as six also teach that the penalty for gay sex is execution and that ‘Zionists’ are plotting to take over the world for the Jews.

One set textbook challenges youngsters to list the ‘reprehensible’ qualities of Jews.

Another for six-year-olds asks them to answer what happens to someone who dies who is not a believer in Islam. The answer being looked for is ‘hellfire’.

A BBC Panorama investigation, to be screened tonight, identified a network of more than 40 weekend schools teaching around 5,000 children, from age six to 18.

The schools – which offer the hardline Saudi National Curriculum – are run under the umbrella of ‘Saudi Students Clubs and Schools in the UK and Ireland’.

They are not state-funded, and do not use Government buildings. They are able to exploit a loophole which means weekend schools are not inspected by Ofsted.

Last night, experts at the Policy Exchange think-tank warned that similar extremists could seek to exploit the Government’s policy of giving greater freedoms from state control to free schools and academies.

They call for the establishment of a due diligence unit to check whether those applying to open the schools have an extremist background.

Current checks are largely limited to fraud, criminal convictions and funding.

Education Secretary Michael Gove, who is believed to be supportive of the idea, said he would not tolerate anti-Semitism and homophobia in English schools.

The Panorama investigation identified a book for 15-year-olds being used in the classes which teaches about Sharia law and its punishments.

It says: ‘For thieves their hands will be cut off for a first offence, and their foot for a subsequent offence.’

There are diagrams showing children where cuts must be made. One passage says: ‘The specified punishment of the thief is cutting off his right hand at the wrist. Then it is cauterised to prevent him from bleeding to death.’

For acts of ‘sodomy’, children are told that the penalty is death and it states a difference of opinion whether this should be done by stoning, or burning with fire, or throwing over a cliff.

Panorama alleges that a building used for one of the schools, in Ealing, West London, is owned by the Saudi government .

Mr Gove told the programme: ‘I have no desire or wish to intervene in the decisions that the Saudi government makes in its own education system.

‘But I’m clear that we cannot have anti-Semitic material of any kind being used in English schools. Ofsted are doing some work in this area.

‘They’ll be reporting to me shortly about how we can ensure that part-time provision is better registered and better inspected in the future.’

The text books for 15-year-olds revive the so-called ‘Protocols of the Elders of Zion’, which teach that Zionists want to establish world domination for Jews.

The Saudi text books instruct pupils: ‘The Jews have tried to deny them (the Protocols) but there are many proofs of their veracity and their origin among the elders of Zion.’

The text books say the ‘main goal’ of the ‘Zionist movement’ is ‘for the Jews to have control over the world and its resources’ which, the book allege, Zionists seek to achieve partly by ‘inciting rancour and rivalry among the great powers so that they fight one another.’

Mr Gove said anyone who cites the Protocols of Zion is ‘indulging in one of the oldest and foulest anti Semitic smears that, that we know of’.

In a written response to the findings, the Saudi ambassador said the schools had nothing to do with the Saudi embassy.

It stated: ‘Any tutoring activities that may have taken place among any other group of Muslims in the United Kingdom are absolutely individual to that group and not affiliated to or endorsed by the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia.’

Referring to the lesson that tasks children to list the ‘reprehensible qualities of the Jews’, in a letter to the BBC, the Saudi ambassador said it was ‘dangerously deceptive and misleading to address such texts and discuss them out of their overall historical, cultural and linguistic contexts’.

Panorama separately claimed some Muslim private schools have expressed extreme sentiments on their school websites.

These include: ‘We need to defend our children from the forces of evil’, and ‘our children are exposed to a culture that is in opposition to almost everything Islam stands for’.

Policy Exchange says Britain’s faith and other schools are increasingly vulnerable to extremist influences.

It claims in a report that the Department for Education, Ofsted, education authorities and schools are ‘not equipped’ to meet such challenges.

Current checks for extremism are described as ‘piecemeal’.

The report adds: ‘The Government’s policy of opening up the education system to new academies and free schools programmes could be exploited unless urgent measures are taken to counter extremist influence.’

  1. Jesus Christ, what is the fuss about?
    Everyone who knows anything about Muslims and their Islamic teaching and increasingly global Mohammedanic dogma will throw out their hands and say “WOOWSA, IS THAT A BIG SURPRISE YOU IDIOTS”

    If you love cows, pigs a and geese in your bedroom, be prepared for the smell and the squizzie fly-ridden patties that goes with it. Surely nobody likes to live with livestock in once private boudoir? Sure, but for somewhat educated people this sort of reporting shows that people can be equally stupid.
    Well, we let them in by the thousands. We let them build Islamic schools and Mohammedan temples. Now, folks – live with it!

  2. The dhimmie moonbat who wrote the article is an example of exactly what is wrong with the Lame Stream Media and with all Politically correct mainly left wing moonbats when he described these as ‘EXTREMIST’ Islamic views. They are not extremist in the slightest they are just ISLAMIC and express exactly what the Koran the aHadith and virtually every Imam teaches. The success of Islamic Taqqiya and the gullibility and stupidity of PC moonbats is encapsulated when there is no one putting the idiot straight on Islam.

  3. UK: Students in Islamic schools taught Sharia amputation methods and that Jews are conspiring to take over the world

    Advocates for Sharia in the West, such as the Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, are never confronted about their views on aspects of Sharia such as the amputation of the hand for theft, which is not negotiable in Islamic law since it is rooted in the Qur’an (5:38). This story shows, however, that Muslims are bringing such elements of Sharia to Western countries — along with a substantial dose of conspiracy paranoia vis-a-vis the Jews, the “worst enemies” of the Muslims (cf. Qur’an 5:82).

    “British pupils taught how to carry out Sharia punishments at Islamic schools,”
    from AFP, November 22

  4. A is for Amputation
    B is for Bomb infidels
    C is for Clitorectomy (and Council house, provided by infidels)
    D is for Death to infidels
    E is for Enemies of islam

  5. Haroon Siddique spinning it in al-Guardian:

    BBC’s Panorama claims Islamic schools teach antisemitism and homophobia

    * Children in Islamic schools are being taught antisemitic and homophobic views from textbooks, the BBC’s Panorama will claim tonight.

    * A textbook used in some weekend schools reportedly asks children to list the “reprehensible” qualities of Jews, according to the programme.

    * It claims to have found 5,000 Muslim schoolchildren being taught that some Jews are transformed into pigs and apes and that the penalty for gay sex is execution.

    * One book for children as young as six is said to ask them what happens to someone who dies who is not a believer in Islam – the correct answer is “hellfire”.

    * Investigators claim to have also found a text for pupils aged 15 which reads: “For thieves their hands will be cut off for a first offence, and their foot for a subsequent offence.”

    * British Schools Muslim Rules, which will be aired tonight on BBC One at 8.30pm, says other texts for the pupils are said to claim that Zionists want to establish world domination for Jews, a spokesman said.

    Nothing to see here, really. If there was, the CPS would be preparing to prosecute the BBC for hate speech & undermining community cohesion.

  6. Muslim boys get to practice how to slit throats, cut hands etc, prior to the Eid celebration, when they cut the throats and limbs of sheep and goats.

    Its all practice to get them inured to the sight of blood, the slow process of death, and the gurgling and bleating of the dying sheep.

    From there its a small step to slitting human throats.

    Our lame stream media though advertise the Eid celebration as the Muslim equivalent of Christmas.

  7. Anything muslims do for Eid doesn’t come close:

    “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
    (Isaiah 9:6)

    “For there is born to you, this day, in the city of David, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:11)

  8. Are they teaching them the “rocks, paper, scissors” method of amputation or are they teaching them the surgical method?
    Does it really matter?
    Hey, hey! Ho, ho!
    The cult of Islam has to go!!!
    Hey, hey! Ho, ho!
    Mo and Allah have to go!!!
    Hey, hey! Ho, ho!!!
    Mosques and minarets have to go!!!

  9. “Education Secretary Michael Gove has said he would not tolerate anti-Semitism and homophobia in English schools.”

    No mention of the hacking off of hands and feet. Does Mr Gove condone that practice?

    The schools are in England but they are NOT English schools. They are Muslim/Islamic schools.

    Yusuf Islam, former warbler Cat Stevens, has opened a few schools in London. They are private schools. Parents are subjected to a third-degree grilling before their children are admitted. It would not surprise me if his schools feature prominently in the BBC Panorama programme. That is, providing Panorama does not kowtow to Mr Islam because of his fame and high profile. He declared on a TV programme in 1989 that Salman Rushdie should be killed for mocking Mohammed in his book, the Satanic Verses. He obviously sanctions Sharia law so it is a reasonable assumption that his schools teach it.

    This pious, sanctimonious mohammedan is also a rabid anti-Semite. A well documented fact.

  10. * ‘our children are exposed to a culture that is in opposition to almost everything Islam stands for’.

    This quote is found in a February 2009 report by Civitas (probably mentioned on WoJ at the time):

    [On the website of the Madani Secondary Girls’ School, East London, we read: ‘Our children are exposed to a culture [i.e. British culture] that is in opposition with almost everything Islam stands for.’ This is a bruising comment that indicates what a negative picture of Western life and civilization will be imparted to pupils.] – Page 52

    The UK Government cannot use the “ignorance” defence in respect of Madani.

  11. One of the dots connecting to the Civitas report & thus the Madani quote:

    MUSLIM SCHOOLS BAN OUR CULTURE
    Friday February 20,2009
    By Macer Hall

    [Another website said: “One should abstain from evil audacities such as listening to music” and calls the Royal College of Music “satanic”. The website of a Muslim girls’ school in London said: “Our children are exposed to a culture that is in opposition to almost everything Islam stands for.”]

    [“We respect people’s freedom to choose their own religion but not to encourage hatred. This crosses the boundaries.” But the Association of Muslim Schools UK dismissed the report as misleading, intolerant and divisive.

    “It contains rhetoric which is not only inaccurate but also breeds distrust and disharmony and adds nothing positive or constructive to the debate,” it said.]

    * The Crown Prosecution Service can leap to the defence of muslim organisations that are exposed by investigative reporters and authors of studies … can’t let anything “misleading, intolerant and divisive” slip through, even if it is true.

    Ofsted praises Islamic schools which oppose Western lifestyle
    Ofsted and the Charity Commission are today accused of “whitewashing” hardline Islamic schools which are helping to radicalise a new generation of young British Muslims.

    [An investigation by The Sunday Telegraph has established that the education watchdog has published positive reports praising Muslim schools for their contribution to community cohesion — even in the case of a school which openly states that Muslims “oppose the lifestyle of the West”. ]

    [One of the Foundation’s trustees, Farah Ahmed, who is also headmistress of the Slough school, wrote a chapter in a Hizb ut Tahrir pamphlet attacking the National Curriculum for its “systematic indoctrination” of Muslim children “to build model British citizens”.

    She criticised “attempts to integrate Muslim children” into British society as an effort “to produce new generations that reject Islam”.

    She described English as “one of the most damaging subjects” a school can teach and attacked fairy tales, saying that these “reflect secular and immoral beliefs that contradict the viewpoint of Islam”. ]

    * Nothing to see – just concentrate on the EDL.

  13. Hasn’t it by now become painfully obvious that the countries of the free world simply cannot afford to admit any more of these deceitful and disgusting people, and that those whom we have already admitted must be forthwith repatriated to their respective sheikdoms?
    Coupled with the preceding, we must immediately initiate a latter-day
    “strength through joy” policy, offering financial incentives to encourage couples to have larger families. If we don’t do so, all the moslems will have to do to impose the world caliphate will be to wait for us to contraceive ourselves to extintion.
