The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is calling on people in Tennessee to oppose a bill that would prevent public schools from teaching the principles of Islam and every other religion until students reach the 10th grade.
Tennessee state legislator Sheila Butt, a Republican, proposed the bill late last week in response to a grassroots campaign across the state by parents — primarily evangelical parents — against what they perceive as an inappropriate focus on Islam in history and social studies courses in taxpayer-funded middle schools.
House Bill 1418, if it becomes law, would prevent the teaching of all “religious doctrine” until students reach the last three years of high school.
Does a prisoner have to be a deserter or tied to the Brotherhood to get Barack Obama to call out for their release?
Barack Obama has called for the release of Egyptian American Mohamed Soltan who has been sentenced to life imprisonment in Egypt for taking part in a violent protest against the coup by President el-Sisi who unseated The Muslim Brotherhood dictator, Mohammad Morsi.
His father Saleh, a prominent member of the Brotherhood, was sentenced to death.
In a statement, the United States State Department said that it was “deeply disappointed” in the decision and “deeply concerned about Mr. Soltan’s health and detention.” The statement called for Egypt to release Mr. Soltan “on humanitarian grounds.”
CAIR, a Muslim Brotherhood organization, has been insisting the president call out for Soltan’s release.
Barack Obama has been relatively silent on Dr. Shakil Afridi’s imprisonment in Pakistan. Dr. Afridi helped the United States capture Osama bin Laden. Obama hasn’t been very forceful about securing the release of our Marine in jail in Iran – Amir Hekmati – nor has he helped the WaPo reporter Jason Rezaian, former FBI agent Bob Levinson, American pastor Saeed Abedini, also imprisoned in Iran.
Foster High School in Texas is the site of more Christian persecution in America due to Islam. Now a teacher is facing punishment from the school district for an 8 page handout that warned the class about the truth of Islam.
Though the information on the handouts were not sourced, it appears that that information could easily be documented.

Remember the piece I wrote firmly stating several reasons why President Barack Obama is an Islamist sympathizer? I think the case was laid out rather simply and wasn’t based on conjecture, but fact, actions and policies by the president. Of course I’m not the only one to say so. More and more Americans are coming to that conclusion as well.
You have to scratch your head after watching the recent Vox.com interview where Obama referred to the Paris Jewish Kosher store terror attackers as “folks” and “random.” And of course the historically inaccurate moral equivalency and relativism proclamations of the president at the National Prayer Breakfast further solidifies the case of our resident sympathizing with the Islamist enemy.
However, last week something happened even more damning for Obama (if that’s possible) – and he doesn’t seem to care. As you might recall, President Obama met with American Muslim leaders at the White House, but the administration was unwilling to reveal who attended the meeting, which was closed to the press.
But as reported by Investors Business Daily, “After complaints, the White House finally released names of the “Muslim leaders” Obama met with behind closed doors a week ago Wednesday. Now we know why it was secret. The list includes members of known jihadist groups. After stonewalling for days about the names of participants at the almost two-hour meeting with the president and his national security advisers – a meeting that was granted at the request of Muslim Advocates, an Islamist group that’s demanded a stop to NYPD surveillance of radical mosques, anti-terrorist drone strikes and Gitmo detentions – the White House quietly attached the list of attendees to the back of its daily press briefing transcript Thursday evening, according to the Washington Times.”
The terrorist front group that coerced federal and local law enforcement agencies in the United States to change the way they conduct terrorism training is also wielding its power to control what occurs in the nation’s public schools, including large taxpayer-funded universities.
It’s a distressing power grab by a wealthy and politically-connected group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), that promotes itself as the nation’s largest Muslim advocacy organization. The truth is that CAIR is a terrorist front group with extensive links to foreign and domestic Islamists. It was founded in 1994 by three Middle Eastern extremists (Omar Ahmad, Nihad Awad and Rafeeq Jaber) who ran the American propaganda wing of Hamas, known then as the Islamic Association for Palestine. In 2008 CAIR was a co-conspirator in a federal terror-finance case involving the Hamas front group Holy Land Foundation. Read more in a Judicial Watch special report that focuses on Muslim charities.
During the Obama presidency CAIR has flexed its muscle and the administration has caved into its outrageous demands in the name of Muslim outreach. For instance, CAIR persuaded the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to purge anti-terrorism training material considered “offensive” to Muslims. Judicial Watch uncovered that scandal last summer after obtaining hundreds of pages of FBI documents with details of the deal. JW also published a special report on the arrangement in December. CAIR also worked on the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), but the spy agency has refused JW’s request for documents and last month asserted that records of any meetings with the radical Islamic group are classified.
