It was by sheer luck this job posting was found. It certainly wasn’t because it was posted for long. As a matter of fact, there is absolutely no mention of it anywhere, including in the school boards meeting minutes.
Murfreesboro City Schools posting reads: Part Time Arabic Outreach Coordinator. (see full posting below) Whether they hired someone is unknown, but the entire occurrence stinks regardless.
As we have proven in the past with the Murfreesboro City School District, (and the Rutherford County School District as well) they have a penchant for hiding anything to do with Islamists, by using the “Arab” word. Prime example, the May 3 2011 “Arab Culture Training” which was presented by the U.S Dept. of Justice, and Connecting Cultures, which is run and owned by a Muslim woman, Luby Ismail. It just so happened emails between the DOJ liaison and the school district also were cc’d to Saleh Sbenaty, a board member of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.
So I venture to surmise, the Islamic Center has something to do with this job posting. What’s truly shocking is the blatant disregard for other ethnicities and religions, once again. as pointed out to me by several community members who have emailed me, there is no African-American Outreach Coordinator, or Jewish or Christian outreach coordinators. Why is it the Islamists are once again in the forefront? Why are Rutherford County Schools so smitten with the Muslim Brotherhood and its sort?
When will the school districts of Rutherford County, including their school boards realize the cover up is worse than the crime?
We will continue to investigate this duplicitous action, and when answers are made available, we will post them.
