Seattle School Forcing Kids to Speak in Arabic During Ramadan


A school district in Seattle is demanding that kids speak Arabic to bless Muslims during Ramadan.

A lawsuit filed against the district also alleges that Muslim students were given special dispensation during Ramadan, including being allowed to skip tests without the missed exams counting against their grades.

The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF) claims the Dieringer School District is officially endorsing Islam and is following a script by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) that urges schools to make special accommodations for Muslim students and to wish them “Ramadan Mubarak,” which means “Happy Ramadan,” or “Ramadan Kareem,” which means “Have a generous Ramadan.”

The district also followed the CAIR guidelines on how to treat Muslim kids including excusing them from tests.

“By urging teachers to bless Muslim students in Arabic, the district is running roughshod over the First Amendment’s mandate of government neutrality toward religion,” FCDF’s executive director Daniel Piedra said. “A school district would never order teachers to ‘welcome’ Catholic students during Easter with ‘He is risen, alleluia!’ Singling out Muslim students for special treatment is blatantly unconstitutional.”

The FCDF alleged in the suit that the district blindly followed the CAIR guidelines and that it violates the Constitution.

“By urging teachers to bless Muslim students in Arabic, the district is running roughshod over the First Amendment’s mandate of government neutrality toward religion,” said Piedra. “A school district would never order teachers to ‘welcome’ Catholic students during Easter with ‘He is risen, alleluia!’ Singling out Muslim students for special treatment is blatantly unconstitutional.”

Naturally, CAIR calls the lawsuit “Islamophobia.”

The FCDF countered saying:

“This approach is wrong for two reasons. First, adding Islamic holidays does not further the district’s educational mission and academic goals. Recognizing holidays is constitutional only if the purpose is to provide secular instruction about religious traditions, rather than to promote the particular religion involved. Second, CAIR’s recommendation that teachers schedule tests around Eid Al-Fitr and Eid would alleviate no burden on Muslim students.”

CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holyland Trial that showed that the group donated millions to terrorist organizations n the Mid East.
