...to hear Representative Andre Carson (D-IN) talk they were deprived of a good education. They might as well have not had any at all. Carson is a Muslim; he believes America should change its educational system—make it more user friendly. It should adopt the most successful system in the world—the Madrassas.
Congressman Andre Carson (above): Madrassa Ideal Education
Jethro Bodine went to Oxford—not exactly a finishing school. Tom and Huck matriculated at Coon Hollow Prep—a word they never understood. And Rosie O’Donnell—well, the less said about Rosie, the better. They all turned out pretty well. Or is that very well?
But to hear Representative Andre Carson (D-IN) talk they were deprived of a good education. They might as well have not had any at all. Carson is a Muslim; he believes America should change its educational system—make it more user friendly. It should adopt the most successful system in the world—the Madrassas.
Now Jethro inherited his money from his Uncle Jed; Tom and Huck owed everything to Mark Twain; and Rosie’s big mouth was actually her own doing. On the other hand, Carson had to work hard for everything he got. There were no Madrassas in the US when he was growing up. He had to go to a public school. He graduated from Arsenal Technical High School. He got his start in law enforcement. He later joined the Indiana Department of Homeland Security and supervised an anti-terrorist unit in the Intelligence Fusion Center. And he did all this without having been schooled in a Madrassas. Who knows—if it hadn’t been for Carson’s hard work, the Chase Tower might have went down instead of the World Trade Center. If he had been schooled in a Madrassas only Allah could have known what might have happened.
Carson inherited his grandmother’s seat in Congress in 2008 in a special election. Though Julia Carson was a Baptist, she invited Louis Farrakhan to speak at her funeral. She had raised Andre and he had worked tirelessly for her in her reelection campaigns. She was a Liberal-progressive.
Andre converted to Islam in the 1990s. He says our schools should be modeled on the Islamic Madrassa. Innovation and ingenuity is encouraged in the Madrassa, he says.
It sounds good. A little innovation never hurt anybody. And ingenuity can keep a person’s fingers attached to his hand when he gets to monkeying around with a bomb.
Students in a Madrassas study the Qur’an. It’s not much different than the Bible—a little more up-to-date that’s all. Sure, there’s a lot of talk of eternal doom and curses on the unbelievers, and a striking off of heads, and of lying in wait and ambush for the disbelievers but there’s no bomb making.
It’s not much different from what Tom and Huck got from the Bible. God told the Jews to slay the Canaanites; Allah told the Muslims to slay the Jews, the Syrians, the Egyptians, the Hindus, the Buddhists, the Spaniards, the Crusaders, and eventually that new breed of Jew, the Israelis, and, of course, the Americans. Slay the unbeliever, smite off his fingertips, says the Qur’an. But “slaying” doesn’t really mean “slaying” in language of the Quran. 9/11 was an aberration. Sure!
Carson says only the Madrassas can meet the multiple needs of our students. Probably smiting necks of the infidels and cutting off their fingertips are amongst them. The God of the Bible got tired of slaying, after he rid the world of the Canaanites. He turned things over to his Son, who got involved in that separation of Church and State business. His Son? Isn’t that blasphemy? The Qur’an says so. So eternal doom to all the His followers!
Carson appears to be behind the curve on education. There are more Madrassas in the United States than Barack Obama knows what to do with, more than the Democrats can make excuses for. Why does he want more? Many of these Madrassas, if not all of them, are funded by Saudi Arabian petro-dollars. They teach Wahhabism.
Moderate Muslims will tell you Wahhabism is a fundamentalist movement, started in the 18th Century by Muhammad al-Wahhab. But it’s all about getting back to the basics of Islam – to the Quran and Sunna. It has nothing to do with the Muslim Brotherhood, with al-Qaeda, with Osama bin Laden, with terror, or with the Saudi government.
The Saudis have spent a lot of money the past twenty years building Madrassas all over the world—about $87 billion dollars. That’s a lot of barrels of oil. These schools teach impoverished children how to read and to study the Qur’an. It’s that simple. No one needs to worry. It’s the Qur’an. Didn’t Tom and Huck study the Bible at Coon Hollow Prep?
Moderate Muslims are not the best sources of information on Madrassas. The Saudi imposed curriculum is closer to the indoctrination Hans and Fritz received at the Horst Wessels Academy in Nazi Germany in 1938 than to anything Tom and Huck heard on the days they did show up for class. Madrassas students learn little of value except for religion.
In a study made by Vali Nasr of Pakistan Madrassas, it was discovered that most of the Malaysian and Thai students that returned to their native lands after graduation became at best hot-headed preachers spewing out hatred of Christians, Buddhists and animists or actually participated in terror themselves. As far as is known, the Pakistani graduates went to work immediately after receiving their certificates.
The Saudis fund a vast network of schools and charities stretching from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Uzbekistan to the Philippines. They are in Kosovo and Bosnia. They are in New Orleans and New York City.
“In order to have terrorists, in order to have supporters for terrorists, in order to have people who are willing to interpret religion in violent ways, in order to have people who are willing to legitimate crashing yourself into a building and killing 5,000 innocent people, you need particular interpretations of Islam. Those interpretations of Islam are being propagated out of schools that receive organizational and financial funding from Saudi Arabia. In fact, I would push it further that these schools would not have existed without Saudi backing.”
America needs Muslims, says Carson. Sure, like Germany needed Nazis in the 1930s and the South needed slave-traders like Nathan Bedford Forrest in the 1850s though in all fairness to Forrest, he did not want to foist his disease on the rest of America. If he had been a Muslim he would have been an advanced thinker.
Carson insists there are three kinds of learners and only the Madrassas can meet their needs. There are visual learners who learn by what they see; there are auditory learners that learn by what they hear; and, of course, the kinesthetic learner who learns by what he feels.
Tom and Huck leaned in their first day at Coon Hollow what took Carson a lifetime to figure out. They could see from the size of their reading books and the lack of pictures that education wasn’t going to be easy. They heard what the teacher said and they got to feel the sting of his rod. No one told them not to take the Cherokee and the Chippewa for friends. The Bible remained on the shelf.
From Zanzibar to Virginia, hatred is being taught in Madrassas. There are more than 2,000 Madrassas in England—that’s a scary total. Most of these Muslim schools are full time; some are part time.
Investigative reporters have managed to get undercover cameras into some of these Islamic schools. What they show is not heartening. Teachers refer to non-Muslims as Kuffars and other derogatory names; they tell their students that Hindus have no brains and drink cow urine. Students are frequently beaten. A few Madrassas are showcased for the press and the public. These schools have mixed-gender classes and preach tolerance of other religions. (Not acceptance, tolerance)
Dr. Taj Hargey, an academic and theologian, runs one of these part-time schools in Oxford. He said he set up the school because of complaints by Muslim parents of beatings. “It’s an outdated concept,” he said, “and if we inflict this violence we will sow the seeds of violence in them.”
Darul Uloom controls the Madrassas in England. The man behind Darul Uloom, is Riyadh ul-Haq. He was denied entrance to Canada a few years ago for his ties to terrorism.
Far more troubling than Carson’s stupid call to Talibanize the American school system was the support he received from the Democratic Party. No one condemned his speech. Islam is no different than Christianity said the Abrahamists. Tom and Huck could do with a little cultural diversity.
But striking off fingertips…
And then came Laura Ingraham on The Factor. She was subbing for Bill O’Reilly. She would put that clown Carson in his place. Of course, Carson refused to appear on The Factor. So Laura brought on Harris Zafar of the Muslim Ahmadiya community. Zafar is a member of Muslims for Peace.
Unfortunately Laura went into her Dennis Kucinich mode. She agreed with everything Zafar put in her mouth. Madrassas might be religious schools, but so were the hundreds of Catholic schools that populate America and no one has complained about them except for the ACLU, Michael Moore, Bill Maher and the thousands of Emma Goldman reading libraries scattered across America from Cambridge to Berkeley.
We can learn from each other, said Laura and Harris agreed. This is one great big country. There’s room for everybody and for a wide variety of opinions.
Once again a conservative, who would tremble with rage at the sight of David Duke, was unable to ask a tough question to a so-called moderate Muslim.
Laura, Laura, Laura, a moderate Muslim is no more moderate than a moderate Nazi or a moderate Klansman. Doesn’t it bother you that there are no ‘Liberal’ Muslims?
This brings up a serious question: Just how much money has Al-Waleed bin Talal sunk into FOX News? He is reportedly worth $18 billion. That can buy a lot of silence.
Maybe Laura has never read the Qur’an. If she had, she might have come to the same conclusion Bill Maher did. “It is a book full of hatred,” said Maher. Who would have thought Maher was ahead of Laura Ingraham in the war on terrorism? Andre Carson?
