Parents Are Furious Over This 'Sharia Law' Worksheet Being Forced On Students In Indiana
by Bob Amoroso
Within the last few weeks Middle America has been exposed to an onslaught of progressive bladder, decrying perhaps the most sacred undertaking within our democracy, the "peaceful transition of power, being assaulted, maligned, disrespected, abused, and referenced as "illegitimate" by a progressive dogma intent on subverting the will of the people, and their peaceful transition.
Moreover these are the same hypocritical fools, who play semantics with the English language referencing "illegal aliens" as "undocumented" hoping somehow to change its true meaning.
And now we have progressive educators in a Southern Indiana school-district playing wordsmith with the true meaning of "Sharia Law" in the hope of disguising its true intent to those students they presumably educate.
At issue is a middle-school worksheet that portrays "Sharia Law" as a positive document rather than what the document acutely prescribes.
At a recent school board meeting related to the controversy, one of the parents named Dean Holt was allowed to speak on behalf of the parents, saying: "The way that the worksheet is left would be like describing how effective Hitler was at nationalizing Germany and creating patriotism but leaving out that he slaughtered 6 million Jews,"
Holt then added: "I'm just not OK with my daughter or any child that age, leaving class with the understanding that anything about Sharia Law is OK."
The worksheet which is assigned to impressionable 7th graders at the Hills Middle School seems designed to cleverly mask the true intent of "Sharia Law" by using fictitious characters to promote what can best be described as willful propaganda.
The made-up character is a 20-year old Saudi woman named Ahlima, who describes how "very fortunate" to live under Sharia law in Saudi Arabia.
"ASTOUNDINGLY this is all a fabrication a hoax conjured up by progressive educators attempting to propagate their demented ideology, the worksheet continues; "I understand that some foreigners see our dress as a way of keeping women from being equal, but ... I find Western women's clothing to be horribly immodest."
Jon Baker another concerned parent interjected stating; "That document by itself, it's almost propaganda, if you read that; you would think everything's wonderful in that world."
There's little doubt that America is in the midst of a "cultural clash" however as long as we allow lunatics to educate our children with falsehoods then we as parents, and as grandparents, deserve the outcome.Note: Articles listed under "Middle East studies in the News" provide information on current developments concerning Middle East studies on North American campuses.
