Larissa Scott of SIOA-Florida has written an important article in the American Thinker about Islamic supremacist propaganda broadcast into U.S. schools via Channel One. Please contact Larissa directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have children who remember watching these two videos in school last week, on 5/16 and 5/17.
“Stealth Islamic Propaganda Shown to Six Million American Students,” by Larissa Scott in the American Thinker, May 25:
On May 16 and 17 of 2012, Channel One Network, a national distributor of educational videos and newscasts viewed daily by over 8,000 middle and high schools, aired a two-part video series, titled “Young and Muslim in America” and “Islam in America.”
In “Young and Muslim in America: How being a part of Islam changed ten years ago, Part 1,” students watch as Muhtasham Sifaat, 18, kneels on a prayer rug inside an empty classroom.
His voiceover explains how he moved around a lot when he was younger, but Islam has given him stability. What is not revealed is that Mr. Sifaat is a political activist serving as a chapter president of the Muslim Students Association (MSA), one of the most radical Muslim Brotherhood front groups in America.
The MSA pledge states: “Allah is my lord. Islam is my life. The Koran is my guide. The Sunna is my practice. Jihad is my spirit. Righteousness is my character. Paradise is my goal. I enjoin what is right. I forbid what is wrong. I will fight against oppression. And I will die to establish Islam.”
Kyle Smith, 22, gives an overview of the five pillars of Islam before the narrator explains:
Kyle, who’s president of his university’s Muslim Students Association, grew up in a Roman Catholic family, but converted to Islam three years ago after searching for meaning in his life (italics mine)…two of his friends led him to the religion.
Doesn’t searching for meaning in life describe almost every American adolescent? Presenting an idealized, whitewashed image of Islam and its followers, and showing how converting to Islam helps those who are lost and confused, this programming is nothing short of a disguised recruitment video pushing a religion in a public school setting….
