WA school tells students to bless Muslim kids in Arabic during Ramadan


A Washington School District urged the students to bless Muslim students in Arabic during Ramadan. That along with other issues didn’t sit well with everyone. A religious liberty group is suing over it. They say the school is giving the Muslim students preferential treatment according to CAIR (Council of American Islamic Relations) guidelines.

Fox News reports:

The Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF) claims the Dieringer School District is officially endorsing Islam and is following a script by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) that urges schools to make special accommodations for Muslim students and to wish them “Ramadan Mubarak,” which means “Happy Ramadan,” or “Ramadan Kareem,” which means “Have a generous Ramadan.”

The CAIR guidelines also instruct teachers to monitor Muslim students fasting and suggests teachers not schedule any tests on the Islamic holidays of Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha

Monitor fasting? Seriously?

The religious liberty group has a real problem with it:

“By urging teachers to bless Muslim students in Arabic, the district is running roughshod over the First Amendment’s mandate of government neutrality toward religion,” said Daniel Piedra, FCDF’s executive director. “A school district would never order teachers to ‘welcome’ Catholic students during Easter with ‘He is risen, alleluia!’ Singling out Muslim students for special treatment is blatantly unconstitutional.”

We have a lot of problems with this also. It goes beyond the normal greetings when it includes Arabic and it’s not something they would do for Christians or Jews so it shouldn’t be done.

The other problem is CAIR is a manipulative, terror-tied organization that shouldn’t have this kind of influence.

And, as the religious group’s May 6 letter warns, CAIR often proves to be anti-Semitic.

Lastly, Islam is not just a religion, it’s a political and social system.

Where is the hypocrite Barry Lynn’s group, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State in this matter? I guess they’re just against any indication of a Bible anywhere around a school or public building but never have said anything about the many school districts kissing a$$ to Muslims under Common Core or just doing it on their own. Go figure. Every public entity being sued by these anti American hypocrites needs to cite this fact in any court proceeding against them..

The 1952 law that was rescinded, that would have stopped this situation from ever developing…has to be reinstated…and those responsible for rescinding same should be deported along with those who refuse to assimilate…and whose goal is quite clear and outlined in the Koran…and clearly discernible despite their “taqiyya”…
