The Koran is Coming to a Public School Near You

Rep. Andre Carson, a Democrat from Indiana, is a Muslim. He wants government (public) schools to follow Islamic teachings and methods:

“America will never tap into educational innovation and ingenuity without looking at the model that we have in our madrassas, in our schools, where innovation is encouraged, where the foundation is the Quran. And that model that we are pushing in some of our schools meets the multiple needs of students.”

Carson is the second Muslim serving in Congress. Keith Ellison (D. Minn.) is the first Muslim elected to Congress. The goal of Muslims is to take over America, one congressional seat at a time. “There are over 7 million Muslims in this country,” Carson said. “And while we are under attack, we cannot retreat.”

Early in its history, America experienced Islamic fascism. The Barbary pirates habitually preyed on ships from “Christian nations,” enslaving “Christian” seamen. “Barbary was Christendom’s Gulag Archipelago.”1 Thomas Jefferson, embroiled in a war with Islamic terrorists in his day, commented, “Too long, for the honor of nations, have those Barbarians been [permitted] to trample on the sacred faith of treaties, on the rights and laws of human nature!”2

Little has changed since the eighteenth century. In Joseph Wheelan’s well researched book on America’s first war on terror with Islam, he writes that “Jefferson’s war pitted a modern republic with a free-trade, entrepreneurial creed against a medieval autocracy whose credo was piracy and terror. It matched an ostensibly Christian nation against an avowed Islamic one that professed to despise Christians.”3

The Koran’s peace initiatives are Orwellian: “War is peace.” Peace is the absence of any religious or political opposition. This is the indisputable history of Islam as Paul Johnson writes:

Koranic teaching that the faith or “submission” can be, and in suitable circumstances must be, imposed by force, has never been ignored. On the contrary, the history of Islam from Arabia was followed by the rapid conquest of North Africa, the invasion and virtual conquest of Spain, and a thrust into France that carried the crescent to the gates of Paris. It took half a millennium or reconquest to expel the Moslems from Western Europe. The Crusades, far from being an outrageous prototype of Western imperialism, as is taught in most of our schools, were a mere episode in a struggle that has lasted 1,400 years and were one of the few occasions when Christians took the offensive to regain the “occupied territories” of the Holy Land.4

 Islamists are using our constitutional freedoms and good that will eventually deny us our freedoms.
