The British authorities have invited this Islamic supremacism by ignoring its existence and demonizing those who called attention to its existence, behaving as if they were the problem rather than those Muslims who would move to impose Sharia values upon the U.K. Now they are beginning to reap what they have sown, and one certainty is that there will be many, many more stories like this one.
Here is a follow-up to a story I posted several days ago: “‘Islamic takeover plot’ in Birmingham schools investigated,” by Phil Mackie for the BBC, March 7:
An alleged plot to oust some Birmingham head teachers and make their schools adhere to more Islamic principles is being investigated, it has emerged.
A letter detailing the plan, known as “Operation Trojan Horse”, claims responsibility for leadership changes at four schools.
These schools are Adderley Primary, Saltley School, Park View School and Regents Park Community Primary School.
Saltley’s head teacher resigned last year after a critical Ofsted report.
Inspectors said there was a “dysfunctional” relationship between head teacher Balwant Bains and governors which was hindering the school.
The letter, which purports to outline “Operation Trojan Horse”, has subsequently been sent to at least another 12 schools in the city – all believed to be vulnerable to takeover.
It states that parents could be encouraged to turn against the leadership team if they are told the school is “corrupting their children with sex education, teaching about homosexuals, making their children pray Christian prayers and [carrying out] mixed swimming and sport”.
Among various claims in the letter is one that the group has “caused a great amount of organised disruption in Birmingham and as a result we have our own academies and are on the way to getting rid of more head teachers and taking over their schools”.
The head teachers of the schools met Birmingham City Council on Thursday to discuss their concerns.
The letter, seen by the BBC, was apparently written by someone in Birmingham to a contact in Bradford, and goes on to outline ways and means by which schools can be taken over.
It says: “We have an obligation to our children to fulfil our roles and ensure these schools are run on Islamic principles.”
It is understood that would mean a greater emphasis on religious studies, as well as girls and boys being taught separately in some classes.
The letter implies these methods have already been put into action and urges the recipient to use Ofsted reports to identify schools in predominantly Muslim areas which are struggling.
Although the authorities have been aware of the alleged plot since November, the details have only become public now thanks to the letter which has been widely leaked.
We still don’t know whether it’s genuine or a fake, but that’s one of the questions the city council is attempting to answer with its investigation.
It’s clearly a sensitive subject and there will be great concerns about the effect on what the authorities euphemistically call “community cohesion”….
