CHARLOTTE, NC: So you honestly believe that “Islamophobia” runs rampant through our country without any justification for concern. Following are the words being sung to celebrate “Ummah Day” by school children who are reciting words about Jihad:
We will defend the land of divine guidance with our bodies, and we will sacrifice our souls without hesitation.
We will chop off their heads, and we will liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque. We will lead the army of Allah fulfilling His promise, and we will subject them to eternal torture.
The blood of the martyrs is calling us. Paradise, men desire it. Revolutionaries, Revolutionaries … Sword and Text, oh free men.
It’s pretty scary stuff that is coming out of the Middle East, right?
Here’s the problem…the children singing those words are Muslims who are enrolled in a school in, wait for it…Philadelphia, Pennsylvania!
You got it, this is happening right here in our own country on American soil.
Why doesn’t the news report Terrorism Training?
You ask, “well if that is true, then why haven’t we heard about it on the news?”
Maybe it’s because our liberal mainstream media would rather report on a controversial episode in Washington, DC involving Nick Sandmann. You might remember the junior at Coventry Catholic School, vilified for confronting a Native American activist at the March for Life in January.
CNN did no less than 23 stories about Sandmann and the video that went viral on the internet.
However, they failed to mention the Philadelphia school children talking about chopping off the heads of non-believers a single time.
As Pamela Geller of the Geller Report asks,
“Is it any wonder half the American people are completely in the dark to the grave threat?”
Thank goodness there are watchdogs other than the MSM that pay attention to such things.
The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) was the first to pick up on the video which was on the internet by the Muslim American Society Islamic Center in Philadelphia.
MEMRI alerted FOX News about the tape with the following statement:
“These are not isolated incidents; they are happening in major centers of the country
– including in Pennsylvania.”
As always, the Muslim American Society in Philadelphia immediately released a counter statement saying the jihad songs were an “unintended mistake.”
“Not all songs were properly vetted,” the MAS said. “This was an unintended mistake and an oversight in which the center and the students are remorseful.”
The Muslim American Society further added that they stand “resolutely in our condemnation of hate, bigotry, Islamophobia, xenophobia, racism, antisemitism and all the illnesses of hate that plague our society.”
Right. As usual, they are “victims” of “misunderstanding” and “misinterpretation.”
Given the right to lie to promote Jihad
It’s called taqiyya which in Islam means “a form of religious dissimulation, or a legal dispensation whereby a believing individual can deny his faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts while they are at risk of significant persecution.”
In layman’s terms, it basically translates to “lying through your teeth.”
Children are like sponges that absorb everything around them. They are easily influenced, or perhaps more correctly “indoctrinated” which is a polite way of saying “brainwashed.”
But children grow up and, within a decade or so, they have become fierce defenders of the faith without even knowing why.
As an aside, that is also the source of many so-called “moderate Muslims” who have little or no basic understanding of Islamic teachings.
To be sure, CNN and other media outlets like it, will ultimately pay attention…after it’s too late. Then they will ask the same inane questions: “When was he radicalized?” or “How did this happen in the United States?” or “Why didn’t Donald Trump do something earlier?”
It’s the same old tripe, yet there it is right in front of our eyes for everyone to view on the internet.
But then again, they are just misunderstood. They always are.
