The CSCOPE Teaching Controversy Heats Up

Hat tip Creeping Sharia and Atlas Shrugs

Previously, I have written posts about the influence of an agency called CSCOPE in our schools-especially in Texas. Creeping Sharia has a post on a test question your kids may have already seen and taken.


I am surprised one of those choices wasn't helping little old ladies across the street.

How about these?

K  death penalty for gays
L   death penalty for those who blaspheme Islam
M  death penalty for apostasy
N  death by stoning for adulterers.

The above is also part of sharia-specifically under hudud sharia- penalty for crimes against God.

That brings us to a recent video that comes from Africa. Atlas Shrugs has posted it, and it has been picked up by other sites. It is graphic and highly disturbing. After careful thought, I have decided to post it. I will explain why below. ( I don't know what the sound track is saying or who put it in the tape.)

My dear readers, this is not about hating people who are Muslims, nor should it ever be. Surely, many Muslims in the US came here to escape this very barbarity. However, this is part and parcel of sharia law. It mandates a death sentence for acts which in our law are not even crimes. This is why so many states are trying to insure that this type of legal philosophy cannot worm its way into American law. It is not about discrimination. It is about human rights.

Our children are being indoctrinated by our public school system when it comes to the reality of this most controversial issue in the world today. This is the same public school system that systematically eliminates any references to Christianity-most recently even to mention the word, "Easter".

If you have  kids in school, you need to pay close attention to what they are being taught. It is well and good to teach tolerance. It is not good to teach misinformation and falsehoods. I am not suggesting that schools teach the darker sides of sharia law to classes that have Muslim children lest they be singled out for schoolyard taunting. Perhaps it would be better if the schools allowed the kids to learn about it the old-fashioned way-by experience as they grow up. If you can't teach the truth, it is better to teach nothing at all.

There is no definition of Sharia law, nor a unified understanding of its jurisdiction.

Jihadis have their version -- convenient to their own purposes. Fousesquawk endorses this version -- because it is convenient for Gary's purposes to promulgate that this IS Sharia law.

Gary isn't against Muslims, only against Islam, no matter how much he has to distort what it means.

SOME Muslims conform to Gary's preferred image. If Gary keeps it up, eventually they all will.

As you know, Islam has no Vatican, no pope. They do have scholars and schools of thought which carry great weight, for example Buchari and Al Azhar University-not to mention people like Qaradawi. I should also include Reliance of the Traveler, which is recognized by Al Azhar and advises Muslims on how to comport themselves in non-Muslim countries.I choose to go by what these people say themselves. These are not considered extremists or radicals by the Islamic world at large. As for what US-based people like Siddiqi tell us about sharia, I regard that as pure taqiyya/.

Sounds like pure speculation to me.
