What will it take to open the eyes of parents within our schools? The “prayers” recited by muslim students are filled with hate and disgust about the Jews and Christians For example the Al-Fatihah-the 1st chapter of the quran and considered to be central to a muslims prayer. The prayer states in part:
” guide us to the straight path, the way of those upon whom you have bestowed your grace-not (that) of those who earned your anger nor those who went astray” Jews “earned your anger” and Christians are “those who went astray” (to see entire prayer, go to www.tn4politicaljustice.wordpress.com newsletter 48)
How is this not a form of hate speech? How does this not turn into bullying for the non muslims?
Our public schools have bullying and harassment policies but do not include the hidden messages contained in “prayers” Perhaps these policies need to be re-examined to include prayers.
An ideology that instills disdain for Jews and Christians is not acceptable,certainly not in our schools
More importantly where is the tolerance they so adamantly preach?
This excerpt from www.realtruthaboutislam.wordpress.com reaffirms their message
The Jews have been described as those who have earned Allaah’s wrath. That is because they knew the truth and chose to go against it. The Christians have been described as those who have gone astray. This is because they sought the truth but were misled from it. Now, all of them have knowledge of the truth and recognize it. However, they go against it. Therefore, they all deserve to have the wrath of Allaah upon them. I call all those Jews and Christians to believe in Allaah and all of His Messengers. I call upon them to follow the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). This is what they have been ordered to do in their own books. Allaah states in the Quran, “My Mercy embraces all things. That (Mercy) I shall ordain for those who are God-fearing and give zakat, and those who believe in Our revelations. Those who follow the Messenger, the illiterate Prophet whom they find written about with them in the Torah and the Gospel, he commands what is right and forbids what is evil. He allows them the good things and forbids for them disdainful things. He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the fetters that were upon them. So those who believe in him, honor him, help him, and follow the light which has been sent down with him, it is they who will be successful. Say (O Muhammad): O Mankind! Verily, I am sent to all of you as the Messenger of Allaah, to whom belongs the heavens and the earth. There is no true God but He. It is He who gives life and causes death. So believe in Allaah and His Messenger, the unlettered, who believes in Allaah and His Words. And follow him so that you may be guided.” [al-Araf 7:156-158].
