Beila Rabinowitz at Militant Islam Monitor tells the whole sad story:
October 20, 20005 – Philadelphia, PA – PipeLineNews.org – Jihad through Da’wa [conversion of non-Muslims] in the form of domestic Islamic education has gotten a boost from an unlikely source, the U.S. government.
The administration has just presented the New Horizons Islamic School in Pasadena, California the United States Department of Education’s “Blue Ribbon for Excellence” award….
The BIAE, based in Los Angeles – which plans the curriculum of the New Horizons School together with the Islamic Center of Southern California even offers an Islamized version of the Pledge of Alliance on their website. It begins with the phrase – “As an American Muslim I pledge alliance to ALLAH and his Prophet.” http://www.biae.net/pledge.html…
As the curriculum provider for the Islamic School of Pasadena, the BIAE underscores the conflict of interests between Islamic education, and the goals of the US Department of Education. The latter insisting that, “schools singled out for national honors will now reflect the goals of our nation’s new education reforms for high standards and accountability.” This begs the question as to who will be held accountable for the decision to present an award to an Islamist school which aims to replace the Constitution with shari’a. http://www.ed.gov/programs/nclbbrs/index.html
The clash between the Islamo-fascist weltanschauung of the Islamic school enterprise in the U.S. and the ideals of American education is evident in the activities of Amina Al Sarraf [a consultant and author of textbooks and syllabi for Islamic schools] who serves as the interim principal of the Islamic School of Pasadena.
Most recently Al Sarraf spoke to ISNA [Islamic Society of North America] a Wahhabist Da’wa front.
ISNA is the foremost distributor of Islamist educational materials in North America. ISNA is the founder of the New Horizons schools — such as the one lead by Al Sarraf – both in North America and abroad.
