Whitewashed history book on Islam being used in FL schools

Tony Ledbetter argues with Hassan Shibly, Esq. from the Council on American-Islamic Relations Tampa Chapter. Photo :News-Journal/Jim Tiller

Instead of ensuring our children are prepared in math, sciences, oral and written communications, and American history, they’re being slowly indoctrinated, and right here Volusia County in Florida, they’re being brainwashed about Islam.

According to The Daytona Beach News-Journal the school board has decided to continue using Prentice Hall’s “World History” taught in the county’s 10th-grade classes, which includes a 32-page chapter about the spread of Islam but glosses over the violence that accompanied it. The book includes no similar treatment of Christianity.

Instead it promotes a politically correct, revisionist history perspective of Islam. You can bet if this were a chapter on the history of Christianity, the ACLU and every other far left association would be screaming about separation of church and state and the establishment clause of the first amendment.

I’m quite happy to debate anyone on Islamic history. I had some thoughts about it here with a fellow from CAIR and here.

Not surprisingly, the textbook is being pushed and defended by the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization mentioned as an un-indicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist funding case in US history, the Holy Land Foundation trial.

You might want to read at your leisure the Explanatory Memorandum of the Muslim Brotherhood Strategic Goal for North America written by Mohammed Akram. Download it here.

This document was uncovered in 1991 during an FBI raid of a northern Virginia home. When you read this document, you’ll realize this textbook is just part of a grand strategic goal. This textbook represents the stealth jihad, which is occurring in America — indeed all across western civilization.

The only way we shall be successful in combating this scourge is to become educated on the designs of Islamic totalitarianism, before its perversion is embedded into the minds of our children. CAIR is nothing more than a suit-wearing front group for the Muslim Brotherhood — as listed in the 1991 Explanatory Memorandum. The Ikhwan, “brotherhood,” is hard at work in our country, and we cannot expect this current Obama administration’s assistance — ask Egyptians whose side they believe President Obama supports.

Don’t forget, the jihadist terrorist attack at Ft. Hood is still officially classified by the Obama administration as “workplace violence.”

Stand up to those who would castigate you as an “islamophobe.” It’s just like Oprah calling you a racist for challenging President Obama’s policies — empty name-calling.


  1. I love that you call a spade a spade, Allen. I love that you are outspoken against tyranny and REAL racism. Bravo for taking a stand against bigotry in all it’s forms but especially against this current administration and those who blindly support it.

  2. This is my school district. We did a poor job of stating our side of the issue. What can we do now? I really don’t know what to do. They delayed the original meeting so they could stack the speakers at the meeting. CAIR was there too of course. Anyone have any ideas?

    • Print off everything in West’s article here. Bring it with you to the meeting. Knowledge is power. I’ve been through something similar here with 6th graders going to a mosque that was built with Muslim Brotherhood money.

    • Pull your kids out & home school until they agree to do what the parents want. If enough parents do this it will definitely get the point across.

      • YYes, quit your job if you have to. Homeschool, learn to livve with less. Our kids need to get out of this mess!

    • You really to rally everyone that is opposed to this and demand a meeting with town council and school officials…. I am so sorry that this type thing is happening and all over the US. Our country is no longer ours! Good Luck!

    • Do like they’re doing out west ,,they are pulling their children during math ,,and home schooling math because of similar bs being taught,,,moms and dads have the power to change schools,,,,if you join forces and stick together ,,the schools get payed by the enrollment,,,,the lower the enrollment the less money coming to the school. ,,,,and you and I know money talks louder than Islam,,,

    • Not that don’t require show of force and bloodshed. Sadly, I fear that is what will be required to rid this once-great nation of this godless scourge.
      The Muslim Brotherhood has “demanded” that they be involved in development of public school curricula – and, with the Muslim-in-Chief in the White House, this has been not just allowed, but encouraged.
      They use our own political correctness, politeness, respect for diversity of others, and Constitution against us. The people MUST rise up and demand the biased and offensive materials be REMOVED. Watch carefully who supports this discrimination against non-muslims and make sure they are voted off the school board. Hold student “sick-outs” backed by parents and churches to protest use of these immoral indoctrinal materials. Prepare “truth sheets” about radical Islam and distribute them to parents for them to discuss with their children. Take students out and homeschool – or create neighborhood private schools – put the public schools out of business!
      Protest and disrupt (if necessary) school board meetings to attract media attention to the problem. This will increase community awareness and public support for your cause. Send parent groups to church leaders throughout the community to inform them of what is going on. Elicit their support for your cause. Also, seek out military leaders and community groups, speak at Kiwanis, and other community organizations.
      It requires activism and the sheeple must awake and become strongly involved in the political battle for our youth.

      • You made many good points. I hope people read and think about what you wrote. We needthe courage to stand up to wwhat’s wrong

      • Well said. Excellent take on this situation. I know I would never put my kids in public school these days, not in a million years for a number of reasons. Citizens are going to have to wake up and band together.

    • Find school district house address, form “baseball” team, break they knee caps and call that Free Speech! Than pray for better tomorrow for your kids

    • Get on the phone and start firing up other parents. Ask them to call all the parents they know, and spread the word that way. Have a meeting with the School Board, or, if the Board refuses, have a demonstration, a loud one! This text is teaching lies and propaganda! Alert the local news station if you are going through with a demonstration, and be sure you’ll have a large turn-out! Paint your objections on signs, take bullhorns if you have any, make sure everyone behaves and follows all laws. This text is not only teaching lies, it is teaching about a religion! Why is that allowed, when Christianity is forbidden? America was founded by Christians looking for the freedom to practise their faith! Why are Muslims MORE free than Christians, Jews, or anyone else? If you don’t like my idea, get your group of parents together and brain-storm! Figure it out! You can’t be the only parent who is concerned!

  3. Wake up America, Amnesty for Illegals has nothing to do with Hispanics, whom he disdains as much as every other race and nationality which is not Muslim. There are 150 million Muslims, by many estimates, waiting in the wings. What type of leaders do you suppose will be corruptly elected then. This is no accident.

  4. MR. Allen West, Thank you for your service and bold proclamation of the truth. I pray to the God I believe in, the Living God Yeshua, for your safety. Truly you are one of the last true American heroes. I digress, from the bottom of my heart. Thank You Sir!

  5. I sincerely pray for this country to get down on their knees and worship the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY!
    Thank you for everything you do, and praying you will continue to do it!

    • Praying to God is great, but standing up and taking action will do a lot more! Sheep get slaughtered! Alice, I pray every day, But I don’t think Jesus is going to come down and save us, I think he’s going to leave that up to us! We can pray for his guidance and wisdom, but I think it’s still left to us!

  6. Article II Section. 4.
    “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors

    • Obama and his Progressive minions should be tried for their seditious acts of treason in a federal court with a federal grand jury. When found guilty by their peers, the punishment should be death by execution by firing squad.

      United States Code Title 18 › Part I › Chapter 115 › § 2381

      Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

      • should’a, would’a, could’a. How about when you get elected to the House or Senate, you could start the proceedings. Doesn’t seem like a single member of the GOP can do it…. and a lot of them would jump at the chance… but they KNOW they can’t.

  7. When I was in college the textbooks credited Muslims with pulling the rest of us out of the dark ages and reintroducing us to literature. B.S.

    • I am sure you know the action that really pulled the world out of the ‘dark ages’ was the Christian Reformation, where the Bible began to be mass-printed through the invention of the printing press, and the ‘common man’ was finally educated so he could read what was in it.

      • Were you referring to this quotation in the article you cited?

        “In his 1523 essay That Jesus Christ Was Born a Jew, Luther condemned the inhuman treatment of the Jews and urged Christians to treat them kindly. Luther’s fervent desire was that Jews would hear the Gospel proclaimed clearly and be moved to convert to Christianity.” It’s right at the top.

      • I was referring to the part about his incitement for people to burn synagogues, books, and death to those that won’t accept the Christian saviour. I agree, for the most part, with your assessment of Christians. There are large denominations however, that are anti-Israel at the top and have been pushing boycott,divestment and sanctions (BDS); Presbyterian and Methodist predominately. Google Luther’s books – he started out loving the Jews and even tried to convert the head rabbi in his town. Failing that, he became a rabid anti-semite. He wrote, in addition to “The Jews and Their Lies”, other books attacking other groups, even Christian groups.

      • Luther was but one reformer, and w/o his exploitation of the printing press would be no more prominent than his peers such as Zwingly, Calvin, Wycliff, Tyndale, Muntzer, and so many more. Luther was not anti-semitic most of his life and only lived 3 years after he published the document you referred to. Luther did not make Hitler but Hitler (and others) used Luther, along with the composer Wagner and others, to justify his own intentions and actions. But Luther was not just anti-Jewish in the end, displaying an antagonism toward most people, suffering from a myriad of physical ailments. No, this does not excuse Luther from the effect he had on history, but does bring a bit of balance to the character who has been credited by some for the entire Reformation. Nothing could be further from the truth, and the vulgar exhibitionist Martin Luther does not represent Christian Reformers as a group. In fact, while Luther had written some great works in his early career, his famous “95 Thesis” was not even anti-Catholic, but his desire was to bring the local church representatives back under the authority of the Pope. Catherine is right.

      • Awe, thank you, Nottaturk! I try to always look everything up–via reliable sources–before I spout off. LOL!

      • From his own book, when I started learning the true history of Christianity several years ago. Luther was not the only reformer that advocated terrorism in the name of their saviour. It’s all available for anyone searching for answers. An excerpt, “First, that their synagogues be burned down, and that all who are able toss sulphur and pitch; it would be good if someone could also throw in some hellfire…” Granted, Christianity has a new face today, but under the tutelage and financing of the SBC, has taken to subterfuge as messianic churches designed to separate people from their ancient faith..

      • Jean, sounds like you got the Reformation confused with the Crusades. Completely different historical events. The Reformation was a religious and educational transformation where Martin Luther, and several others (referred to later as “Protestants”) protested the Roman Catholic Church’s religious and political dominance over Europe by keeping commoners uneducated and the Bible out of the common man’s reach. That’s why the ‘Dark Ages’ were called the ‘Dark Ages:’ The masses were uneducated. They could not read. The RCC kept them this way so it could lie to everyone about God and His Word. The RCC was also conducting their Inquisitions (forced conversions of Christians, Jews, and Muslims through torture and murder), from 1205 AD to 1605 AD. The Reformation happened during the 16th Century, 1517 and ended around 1555. Here’s a link to educate you: http://www.history.com/topics/reformation

        The Reformation is what began the ‘enlightening,’ or Renaissance period. A period of greater education for all people, The 1440 invention of the printing press by Johannes Guttenburg helped a lot. The first book ever printed on it was the Bible. The Guttenburg Bible.

      • Respectfully, I am specifically referring to the Reformation period. I came out of Christianity because of its history, including the “Reformers”. I’ve been studying this history for over seven years, including the mis-translations and many examples of tense-shifting in the Christian OT which are done to shift the emphasis to the future in order to provide support for the NT. For this, I studied Biblical Hebrew with an instructor for several years. I could overlook the dark history of all the churches as ‘ancient history’, (altho not entirely ancient) But I could not tolerate the deliberate distortion of the original Hebrew scriptures, for if the NT religion were true, it didn’t need to perpetrate what has been called ‘a theological crime scene’ upon the Jewish scriptures, nor did it need to perpetrate continuous oppression on peoples who do not accept its views. I could suggest several books, including “The Missionaries – God Against the Indians” which tells how the missionaries told the Panera Indians that they killed j. and wrote a NT designed for these people. A better resource is http://www.isaiah53.com which gives just one example.

      • Sadly, Jean,

        While I respect your efforts to educate yourself, your claim that the New Testament of God’s Word is a religion is patently inaccurate. The entire Bible is God’s Word, and has been proven as such to be a Miracle in itself.

        Christianity is not a religion, it’s a relationship with the Rock, who is Christ Jesus. Not some institution, but a one-on-one relationship with each of His followers. In fact, when the Bible refers to “the Church,” it is not refering to any building, nor any religious institution (as the RCC claimed), but it refers to the body of believers (followers)–those who engage in the afforementioned relationship.

        God’s Word tells me that the crucifiction of Jesus was predestined, prophesied, and PLANNED by God, Himself. It was intentional, as a means of salvation for all the world.

        The Bible also mentions that the Jews had been hoping for a militant “savior” who would destroy their enemies. So, when Jesus arrived on the scene, they were disappointed because He was all about Love, Peace, and Forgiveness. The Pharisees saw Him as a threat to their religious ‘standards’ and filled charges against Him, claiming he was a “heretic.” They had Him arrested and turned over to the Romans (pagans) who ruled over the Middle East at the time. So, technically, it was the Romans who actually tortured and crucified Jesus.

        But regardless of how it went down, it was all INTENDED by God, and Jesus fulfilled many Biblical prophesies–not only by being born, but in how and why He died. Try reading the Gospel of John (the 4th NT Book) and learn who Jesus is, in the first place (clue: God).

      • 🙂 Don’t be sad. I didn’t state that the NT is ‘patently inaccurate’, rather that is it flawed by mistranslations and grammatical changes. As well, there are 150,000 versions of which (according to scholars who study these things) only 15 percent of the variations are changes, additions, or redaction. Whereas, the Hebrew Torah (the five books of Moses) in the original Hebrew – every copy is identical throughout the world, in every synagogue. The slightest error by a scribe can render a Torah unusable and it is destroyed. The last 12 verses of Mark are an addition hundreds of years after the unknown author of Mark penned words ‘attributed to Mark’. Perhaps a better way to describe the NT is “anything that is new is false, and anything that is old is true” However, it doesn’t bother me in the least that people believe it, but to base its reliability on the altered texts of the Hebrew scriptures does. Of the 80,000 denominations, religions and cults in the world, all with the exception of one, has started with a dream, a vision, or an idea of a single individual, with no witnesses. Followers of Mohammed base their religion on a visit to Mohammed from the angel, Gabriel and it evolved into the 2nd world domination religion. Paul’s experience was heard and not seen, or seen and not heard, (depending on which book you read) by his witnesses. Mary had no witnesses, none for her husband’s dream. My original reply was to bring out the information that the Reformers were not so much reformed. All the textual errors created by the RCC were carried into the Reformation and persist till today, although I would note that newer translations have slowly started to correct these, notably in Isaiah, albeit as footnotes. I’ve enjoyed the discussion, peace be with you, and if you’d like to offer a proof-text of one of the prophecies, I’d be happy to discuss it.

      • No need to be sad..education is good. I penned a long reply which apparently didn’t post or was eliminated. So much for freedom of speech. If you would like to present one of your prophetic proof-texts, I’d be happy to discuss it.

      • It’s not funny, it’s true! Don’t be shy to say it; there are many Christians who believe the same thing. Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus.

    • I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. Rev. 20:4

  8. The only way to combat all these lies is to stand up and tell the Truth! When the Progressives and Muslims start their personal attacks and vendettas against you, you will know you’re doing the right thing.

  9. It won’t be long before one of these peace-loving Muslims “light one off” somewhere. Then CAIR will be wiping off the blood of innocent dead Americans with new claims of persecution.

  10. Sorry I was raised in Volusia, and these goat molesters can eat chit and head home! 300 hundred million Americans, how may Rag Heads! Japan pissed of America, and we know how that ended, and there was more of them than rag heads!


    Here is a perspective by Dr. Peter Hammond.

    Dr. Hammond’s doctorate is in Theology. He was born in Capetown in 1960, grew up in Rhodesia and converted to Christianity in 1977.
    Adapted from
    Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat:
    Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life.
    Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.

    Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges.

    When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well..

    Here’s how it works:

    As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving
    minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:
    United States — Muslim 0..6%
    Australia — Muslim 1.5%
    Canada — Muslim 1.9%
    China — Muslim 1.8%
    Italy — Muslim 1.5%
    Norway — Muslim 1.8%

    At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.
    This is happening in:
    Denmark — Muslim 2%
    Germany — Muslim 3.7%
    United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
    Spain — Muslim 4%
    Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

    From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.
    For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims.
    They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply.

    This is occurring in:
    France — Muslim 8%
    Philippines — 5%
    Sweden — Muslim 5%
    Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
    The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
    Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

    At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

    When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions.
    In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam.
    Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections, in:
    Guyana — Muslim 10%
    India — Muslim 13.4%
    Israel — Muslim 16%
    Kenya — Muslim 10%
    Russia — Muslim 15%

    After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues,
    such as in:

    Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

    At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and on going militia warfare,
    such as in:

    Bosnia — Muslim 40%
    Chad — Muslim 53.1%
    Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

    From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels,
    such as in:

    Albania — Muslim 70%
    Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
    Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
    Sudan — Muslim 70%

    After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim,
    such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:

    Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
    Egypt — Muslim 90%
    Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
    Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
    Iran — Muslim 98%
    Iraq — Muslim 97%
    Jordan — Muslim 92%
    Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
    Pakistan — Muslim 97%
    Palestine — Muslim 99%
    Syria — Muslim 90%
    Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
    Turkey — Muslim 99..8%
    United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

    100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace.. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word,
    such as in:

    Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
    Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
    Somalia — Muslim 100%
    Yemen — Muslim 100%

    Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.

    ‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel. — Leon Uris, ‘The Haj’

    It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law.
    The national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrasses. They learn only the Koran. To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death.
    Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate.

    Today’s 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world’s population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers.
    Muslims will exceed 50% of the world’s population by the end of this century.

    Quite an eye opener !

  12. When the lame stream media led America’s youth down the path to electing a compulsive liar to be the president of the U.S. they may assume it was politically correct to have an Iranian, Valery Jarrett, in charge of the white house cabinet. Valery Jarrett made the call to stand down in Benghazi. I surmise it was her doing to withdraw security form the Benghazi compounds. I submit that it was Valery Jarrett’s meddling that got 17 seal team six members killed in the extortion 7 scandal. So how do you feel that you can no longer afford health insurance, having worshiped Obama at the beckoning call of the lame stream media? Do you feel emboldened and strong having someone in the highest offices of power in the oval office who use executive privilege to prevent release of privileged information on these events. Did you know what would happen by giving such persons such absolute powers? Did you not believe Obama when he said he would have the most transparent administration ever? I came to the conclusion that Obama would be the least transparent, most dishonest and dangerous president in the history of the U.S. even before his first presidential debate. I saw all those promises and the media gushing for the sham that it is.

    • I read a little bit about Obama, even read his own words about his father, read about his book, and grew VERY wary about the man! He said all his “mentors” were communists; it that NOT a red flag!?! He said his father hated America for its “colonialism”, and wanted him to promise to do his best if he were ever in a position to destroy America! A woman who knew him in high school said he was a pathological liar even then, and he frequently had sex with men for money! No wonder he’s so pro-gay! I’ve even seen photos of him in high school, dressed in drag! He’s disgusting! His Muslim brothers would disown him if they saw those pictures! The lamestream media didn’t even try to look into his background! They didn’t want to know! That way, they could make it up themselves. Now, CAIR has a wide open door to move on their agenda. Obama is the WORST thing to happen to America. If we do NOT impeach him, remove him and turn back to God, America is doomed to its own destruction. God will NOT bless us again until we turn back to Him, as in the days of our Founders, turn from our sin, and seek His Guidance.

  13. Just more treason being exercised by the advocates of Foreign Idea Hostile to American Principles, OKA: The Ideological Left… AKA: Socialism

  14. The group that controls the school books are out of England. They have the hold on the market and they are tied into the Federal Gov Education “Core” that people are upset about and rightfully so.

  15. Islam….followers cut off heads, hack people with machetes, stone people to death, promote ‘honor’ killings of women, and in all ways force people to remain ignorant. They have to force people to be Muslim and Sharia compliant. Who would choose this? Obama’s best buds are the Muslim Brotherhood, who proclaim their intent to convert the whole world or murder it. Nice people. Nobody should read about Islam without knowing the whole story. Without including the violence and hate, it’s just propaganda. My kid would be out of that school, and I’d be on the phone complaining about the people in charge.

  16. Omissions are inevitable in textbooks that condense thousands of years of history
    into a single volume.

    Although I also find it, unfortunately, quite telling that some students would accuse people who want the text to be MORE comprehensive of being “voices of intolerance and censorship.”

    • Are you an Islam apologist? The omissions in question are ALL the violence that lead to the spread of Islam! The violence is the ONLY reason for its spread! It didn’t spread for the warm cuddly feeling you get! It isn’t the students who want violence included, its the parents who want their children to know how murderous and violent Muslims are! Way to twist what you read!

      • Twisting what you read is precisely what you have done just to make my comment fit your self-righteous harangue.

        Am I an apologist for Islam? No. I never have been. But distorting what I wrote to try to denounce me as such must fit into your viewpoint of you wouldn’t have even mentioned it.

        General education textbooks, ANY general education textbooks, will have omissions of fact of many things simply because they are general and are meant to convey lots of information in a minimal amount of time and with a minimal amount of space.

        For example, pretty much all general history texts used in American public schools have information about Paul Revere’s ride in 1775 to alert the Colonial militia to the approach of British forces before the battles of Lexington and Concord. What is usually omitted is that Revere was one of three riders that night, Joseph Warren and Samuel Prescott being the others, that all three were detained by British troops between Lexington and Concord, that Prescott and Dawes escaped, that Dawes fell off his horse not long after and did not complete the ride, that Revere was then arrested and questioned by the British soldiers at gunpoint, and that Prescott was the only one to reach Concord.

        Everything included in general education textbooks is at the expense of something else not being included. That’s the reality of it.

        The students who were accusing the opponents of the textbook as being “voices of intolerance and censorship” because they want the section on Islam to say MORE about Islam obviously do not understand what the words intolerance or censorship mean. Or the understanding that they do have has been taught them by either teachers or parents, or possibly both, who have a very muddled idea of the concepts that those words convey.

  17. In 2003, my daughter was in middle school in California. They introduced a history textbook titled “Across the Centuries”. It, too, was an apologetic for Islam. The most egregious statement to me was this: “The God of Islam and the God of Christianity are the same God.” The best I could get from the school administrators was an opt-out for my daughter when that chapter was being studied. I don’t know, however, whether any questions pertaining to that chapter were included, subsequently, on any tests. It just never occurred to me at the time. Also, around that time, school children in San Francisco were forced to dress up as Muslims and practice the five pillars. On later examination of the text I found that the consultant for that chapter was the head of CAIR in Orange County, CA, whose version of ‘history’ was apparently used by the publisher whole cloth.

    • That’s scary, knowing this has been going on, unchecked, for ten years at least! How does a school get away with forcing students to dress as terrorists and practice their religion!?! You should have screamed form the rooftops! I would have, but my faith is most important in my life, as are my children! But, I know, too, how hard it is to get past “the wall” when talking to a moron in a school office! And I’m a teacher!

  18. It’s Obama he’s a muslim.Take notice desert dwellers it ain’t going to work here.Bitch and moan that it’s racism because it is ,on your part.Screw you and Islam!

  19. This article is why I have little regard for what leftists/liberals advocate, which many or most educators seem to be. They are full of contradictions. I’m not talking about contradictions from weakness which most people have and want to change, I’m taking about contradictions that they proudly shout out from the rooftops and “get up in your grill about!” For example, they’re always carying on about even a hint of anything Christian in the schools to the point of not even saying the name Christmas, but replacing it with the innocuous term “holiday,” of course until that term becomes intolerable, which history shows that it eventually will. This is all done to supposedly maintain separation of church and state. It is however in their eyes somehow okay to promote Islam, a religion as history reveals that wherever it has a dominant influence it leaves a wake of destruction in its path.
    There’s the disdain of war where they see themselves as having achieved a culture far beyond violence because of their superior mental aptitude and elevated insight, yet they churn out unnecessary gratuitous violent films and films filled with blood lust centered upon heinous evil themes expressed in vampire, zombie, and other horror films feeding Americans a steady diet of crap which they gladly consume!
    Then there’s the pretense of a hatred of “supposed” torture performed by our soldiers and intelligence community trying to win a war which they undermine by making it a legal issue, yet they incorporate torture in their deviant sexual practices and celebrate it the way Christians celebrate Christmas with joy and awe in the fictional work “Fifty Shades of Grey” as if it were a treatise on a new liberating sexual frontier.
    There’s an endless amount of contradictions with the leftist/liberals that they themselves don’t see as contradictions which is why I can’t take them seriously and feel they need have no influence in the public arena.

  20. I’ve been told by more than one Iraq veteran that you were someone they would still follow. I’m not happy with the Patriot Act…that now vilifies anyone that stands as a patriot….but since that instance you seem to have got back on track and the issues you speak about and fight for seem to be the right ones. I agree with almost everything you bring up. I still have my grandfathers WW1 artillery ring….although that’s not why I agree with you. I agree with you because I research things I am interested in….and I am interested in keeping this country as it has been…a bastion of democracy, where I can say what I want, and do as I please…as long as I don’t hurt anyone.

  21. So…Islamists: You can be Americans…..just as Christians, Jews, Atheists, Buddhists, etc…have been……However they don’t have a doctrine to convert the world. You want to be a US citizen?..Then be one! Stop trying to force everyone into the way you see the world. We already have a president that does that.

    • A quote from Theodore Roosevelt expressing his views on immigrants written in a January 3, 1919 letter to the president of the American Defense Society. It was read publicly at a meeting on January 5, 1919. Roosevelt died the next day, on January 6, 1919.

      The actual text from Teddy Roosevelt’s letter is below:

      “We should insist that if the immigrant who comes here does in good faith become an American and assimilates himself to us he shall be treated on an exact equality with every one else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed or birth-place or origin.”

      “But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American and nothing but an American. If he tries to keep segregated with men of his own origin and separated from the rest of America, then he isn’t doing his part as an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. . . We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language, for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans, of American nationality, and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding-house; and we have room for but one soul loyalty, and that is loyalty to the American people.”

  22. Michelle Obama said “We’re going to change our traditions and our history” and indeed that is exactly what they are doing. Wake up sheeple!

  23. Islamophobe? whats wrong with that????? .!! Muslims are not nice people in any way shape or form. Parents, wake up and demand that our schools teach our American History, Reading, writing, Math and what made this country great.!!!!! What we have is a President that is a misfit and a fraud. The biggest liar on the planet. He wouldn’t even attend the celebration of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. Lincoln who is one of the finest President’s we ever had. How dare those backward, devils come into our country and push their nonsense on the rest of us. I say get the pigs blood out and give them a bath with it.. !!!!!!!

    • “He wouldn’t even attend the celebration of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.”

      The Gettysburg National Cemetery/Battlefield is hallowed, sacred ground, Obama is evil. Obama has never visited the Gettysburg site — a site I visited and did my high school senior dissertation on in 1966 — for him to do so would be like satan being confronted by a priest forcing a silver crucifix into his face. Evil shrinks from the face of Godliness.

      “Lincoln who is one of the finest President’s we ever had.”

      This “insults” Obama who, in his mind considers himself the “greatest president” ever – to visit the Gettysburg celebration would fly in the face of his own mental image and self-esteem. Obama suffers from severe Narcissistic Personality Disorder, read the WebMD symptoms and you will immediately recognize them (2nd screen down)

  24. What has induced Prentice Hall to include those 32 pages in their history books? Did a Saudi prince buy the publisher?
    There are laws against false advertising. Do those laws have any teeth to them and would it be possible to use those laws against Prentice Hall and or Cair/Muslims in general?

  25. Muslims are now emboldened. They have an advocate in the White House who is pushing their agenda to control AMERICA. For now, Muslims are laying in wait until their population in our country has expanded.
    Muslim immigration to AMERICA is growing exponentially. Before the World Trade Center attack there were approx 1,000 mosques in the USA. Today, more that 2,000 and growing, the largest mosque in the Western Hemisphere being constructed in Maryland as we speak.
    Paterson, NJ flies the muslim flag over City Hall now every May 19th for “Palestinian Day”.
    Every day in every way, they are creeping into society. The key to this is IMMIGRATION.
    Even though we are at war in muslim countries everywhere, they are allowed into our country in record numbers. We are being set up for a catastrophe.

  26. Why isn’t anyone in Washington taking action to impeach Obama? If the public was ready to take immediate action to impeach Nixon, who had served in the nations congress for many years prior to his grave mistake, why isn’t anyone taking action to get rid of this infesting insect who is causing infestation on our liberties and freedoms?

  27. I see everyone being blamed EXCEPT the lamest generation – the twenty something and thirty something voters who believe they are going to get something for nothing and elected and re-elected someone based solely on his charisma and empty promises and the parents who raised them that way. Face it folks: YOU are to blame for your problems! I can see that, and I’m a DOG!

  28. Good stuff Col. But we do not need to History, although I believe accurate teaching in schools should be a law, to show us how violent Muslims are. All we have to do is read / watch the news to see them chopping off heads and throwing acid in little girls faces. If it ever comes to Muslim rule in the States let the war begin. I will die before my children are subjected to their terror. I am sure you feel the same way, although it would be politically incorrect for a man in your position to say so.

    • ” . . . although it would be politically incorrect for a man in your position to say so.”

      The fear of being labeled “politically incorrect” or “racist,” etc., is the technique the Marxist-Communists in this nation are using to stifle truth and free speech so as to promote their devious agenda.

      I don’t believe the PC or racism arguments will deter Col. West’s determination to exercise his first amendment RIGHT to speak his mind and expose the TRUTH – “PC” be damned.

      • I agree. I am just saying if a Republican is elected and wanted to appoint him SecDef it might not be good to have on his record saying something like “Kill’em all and let Allah sort them out.” Second part of this is I am an active duty Captain, so there are a lot of things I would love to say about Muslims and the admiistration, but Col. West would be the first one to point out this is not a good idea in our profession.

    • That’s the part I simply don’t get. We are exposed on a regular basis the violence that Muslims are capable of, from beheadings to suicide bombings. All in the name of “jihad”. There is no question in my mind that the ultimate goal of Muslims, whether foreign or domestic, is world conversion to Islamic beliefs and Sharia law. Why in Volusia County and Seminole County in Florida is this curriculum being taught? We are already fighting to keep Christianity on the table and they can just sashay in and indoctrinate our children?

      • Good points. This is why my kids will never go to a public school. I feel sorry for the parents who have no other options.

      • Muslim Brotherhood memo for U.S. infiltration: “An Explanatory Memorandum: On the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America”
        Pages 1-14, original Arabic; pp. 15 on, English Translation
        “4 – Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America: The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny . . . ”

        Also related, must see:

        The Project
        YouTube Video 1:28:11
        Complete video of The Blaze documentary “The Project.” This video exposes some of the Muslim Brotherhood’s plans to take over the United States and ultimately the whole world.

  29. It is true, at least to my thinking, that the goal is to make Islam a world religion. If folks would read history they could see for themselves. They tried once before to dominate the world as it was not so many centuries ago.

  30. It is not just Volusia county. The book is being used in Seminole County as well. My wife and I have written to the principal and school board regarding this with on response. We have also talked with our state representative and state senator. This needs to be broadcast on a larger scale.

  31. That goes with the “Executive Order” that forbids military personnel from speaking about CHRISTIAN BELIEFS, or get court-martialed. AND, the ‘purging’ of senior ranking military officers. Being “politically correct” is stomping on the American Constitution.

  32. Muslims get to say and do whatever they want because they are protected by Homland Security, thanks to B. O. Ya know, B. O. stands for Barak Obama, but it also stands for body odor… uhhh oh I guess they are pretty much the same. B. O. stinks either way.

  33. Islam has always spread three ways historically. 1. Direct conquest. 2. Through border wars conducted by Muslim Ghazis(knights) which in modern terms is terrorism and coercion. 3. And lastly, emigration and sublime conversion which in the case of resistance eventually reverts to 2.

  34. PS. People wish to talk about the horrors and atrocities of the crusades. I will remind people that the battle of Tours was fought in France 400 years before a western christian went to recover Jerusalem.

    • I would remind the readers that the Crusaders burned the Jews in their synagogue in Jerusalem in 1099 in the quest to ‘recover Jerusalem’.

      • Riiiiiigggggghhhhttt But it’s 2013 and I think we need to worry about the problem at hand. Then we can hash out the history.

      • I totally agree we have to worry about the current problems with a world domination religion bent on conversion of infidels, but we must learn from history that the earlier world domination religion may’ve changed its tactics, but its goal remains the same. As long as any religion teaches that it must ‘save’ the world by accepting their view and consigning the remainder of humanity to hellfire, we should be nervous, very nervous.

  35. This is another example of STUPID PEOPLE in Charge of Indoctrination of OUR Children. If this was in my School District, I wouldn’t allow my child to participate. And I would sue the District and those in Charge if they did anything to subject my Child or their grades because they didn’t participate in this “EVIL” Religion Indoctrination.

  36. Islam is not a religion, it is idea of World domination.! Islam does not teach Love or Forgiveness….Therefore what they have is Satinism…

    • Islam is a political agenda/movement focused on world domination masquerading as a “religion” – it glorifies death, deceit and evil ways – it is the religion of the “prince of darkness.”

      Muslim scholars teach that “there are two forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, taqiyya and kitman. These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause {of} Islam – in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.” http://tinyurl.com/958p4t

      Virtually every true religion celebrates and glorifies life, goodness, righteousness and TRUTH. Judge the authenticity of any movement by their philosophies and actions – do they practice the values of light (good) or darkness (evil)?

  37. We need to stop tolerating PC and liberals in general. They are Christophobic, America Haters and usually traitors. Stop tolerating them, if they accuse you of anything be appreciative, it is usually a compliment. Most if not all the screaming from the left is misdirection or it is a complete lie and should be treated as such.

  38. I may have to reference this article when Mustang, Oklahoma’s school board possibly opens up a Bible class for their students in their Public School system. If separation of church and state (like THAT exists) is brought up by the local ACLU, then we will have to do the same for any textbooks that teach about Islam too. After all, they are both church based religions.

  39. If I were one of those parents, I would pull my kids and home school, immediately! This country, our American people, need to get together and re-establish the religion, Christianity, this country was founded upon.. only then, can we begin to repair our brokenness.

    • Noting some of the earlier fervent comments, I’d to open the discussion to the idea that this country was founded on Christianity, which seems to be an overreach. The country was founded to protect the beliefs of everyone, Example, George Washington: “We have abundant reason to rejoice, that, in this land, the light of truth and reason has triumphed over the power of bigotry and superstition, and that every person may here worship God according to the dictates of his own heart. In this enlightened age, & in this land of equal liberty, it is our boast, that a man’s religious tenets will not forfeit the protection of the laws, nor deprive him of the right of attaining & holding the highest offices that are known in the United States. Your prayers for my present and future felicity are received with gratitude; and I sincerely wish, Gentlemen, that you may in your social and individual capacities taste those blessings, which a gracious God bestows upon the righteous.” —————————————————-
      Don’t get the idea that I’m disrespecting any religion, only the fanaticism abundant in some of them. Until we can all respect others for their righteous actions and not their beliefs, will we become the country the founding fathers hoped for. If anyone finds themselves in a religion that teaches that everyone else is wrong, perhaps they may consider that some of the tenets of their religion are what is wrong.

  40. If you look up “racist’ and “islamophobe” as well as “war on women” in the Libspeak dictionary, you will find that they all have the same definition: “you are totally correct so that I have no intelligent argument to refute what you just said, but maybe if I scream really loud nobody will notice.

  41. I think that the parents should file a lawsuit against the school system and the book publisher. They will not allow anything connected to Christianity in the books or studies yet they allow this piece of trash. Since they claim that Islam is a religion then it should be banned from the schools. What is happening is that money is exchanging hands and that school board is selling the souls of these children for what ever amount they are being paid, either directly or indirectly by these pieces of scum.
    As a matter of fact I believe that there should be a lawsuit files against the federal government because they do not allow prayers in school. If that athirst was allow to destroy our country by pushing her beliefs then we Christians should be allowed to push OUR beliefs onto those that do not believe.

  42. Ok, so which is it? the new world order that wants to control the planet and it’s masses??? or is it Islam and it’s world conquest agenda that wants to control the planet and it’s masses??? Who’s the good guy and who’s the bad guy??? or, are they both the bad guys??? they both smell real fishhhheeeee, fisheeeeee!!

    • The ones wanting to rule the planet are using Islamic Jihadists to create chaos and disorder. Both are thinking they’ve got one up on each other tho…that’s the mind of a psychopath and their hunger for total power. But it is doomed to fail. It has never worked and never will because at the end of the day, you still have to fool people and not everyone can be fooled…

  43. Re the the jihadist terrorist attack at Ft. Hood . . .
    The ‘generals & admirals’ bought into this BS “WORK-PLACE” incident label or else risk having their PC fingers all over this Muslim Terrorists weapons!
