it was only a matter of time before the Islamists figured out a way to get an off shoot of the Muslim Brotherhoods MSA ( Muslim Student Association) into high schools throughout the country. Enter MIST of Nashville.
MIST- The Muslim Interscholastic Tournament (http://www.getmistified.com/msa-resource-center/forming-a-high-school-msa/ )has several chapters in the United States and seeks to expand. MIST Nashville is also the brainchild of Lema Sbenaty of Murfreesboro, a Muslim Student Association / Muslim Brotherhood supporter. MIST- National was founded in 2002 by Shazia Siddiqi and the Muslim Student Association alumni from the University of Houston.
According to the MIST National website, their objective is seemingly a good one:
We are dedicated to empowering high school students by giving them a venue to
- Develop confidence and professionalism by practicing presentation, public speaking, and problem solving skills
- Meet and network with diverse peers who share the same talents and interests
- Express their thoughts and ideas through various creative mediums
However, good faith is lost when you read Step 8: Finding a Sponsor. In that it states:
1.The Ummah: (Community) We are Muslims in non-Muslim countries. As such, it is the duty of each and every one of us to inform and educate others about Islam.
More deception under the “Forming a high school MSA” is “If you are in a public school, make sure that you emphasize that your MSA is an academic group and not a religious one.” But further down in “creating a core group” it states “If you come up against any reluctance, emphasize that your MSA is for anyone interested in LEARNING and clearing misconceptions about Islam. This may facilitate school approval.
As it states in the Muslim Brotherhoods Strategic Goal for North America, Dawa (proselytizing) is of utmost importance to persuade people of other faiths to convert to Islam. So once again the creation of an organization that appears to be beneficial to all, is really just another way to enter into our society to indoctrinate our children.
Parents must be vigilante in your child’s school environment. Islamic training of teachers and administrators, bias textbooks and now extra curricular activities need to be watched closely. The Muslim Brotherhood and their supporters are certainly alive and well in Middle Tennessee.
