February 16, 2007 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Credit Clovis, California middle school teacher Randy Ingram with the courage to state to his sixth grade class the obvious, that Iran has sworn to destroy the state of Israel.
Given Iranian president Ahmadinejad's constant threatening of Israel with destruction, Mr. Ingram's statement would seem to be non-controversial.
Unfortunately in California where teacher's unions are pushing for a Marxist comic book to be used as part of history curriculua such truth telling might well be rewarded in the form of disciplinary action.
A single student in Ingram's class allegedly reported some version of the instructor's story back to his parents who then, in a template repeated hundreds of times a year by Islamists nationwide, called in the Muslim thought police.
Taking the lead here is Kamal Abu-Shamsieh, the director of Islamic Cultural Center of Fresno.
What the Bee does not inform its readers is that Shamsieh is a professional Islamist; he was described in a 2002 conference for Arab and Muslim journalists:
Kamal Abu-Shamsieh is a former Palestinian journalist and a documentary film maker. He is currently the national community relations director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) based in Los Angeles. He provides the Muslim & ethnic media outlets with weekly updates and news about the Muslim community.
Mr. Shamsieh is both a radical Muslim and an Israel hater who in a piece authored for the far-left pro-Fresno Alliance newsletter, accused the Jewish state of war crimes, "represented a new phase of Israel's war crimes," while decrying the alleged, "apartheid policies of Israel." [source http://www.fresnoalliance.com/home/magazine/2006/Aug06pg1-8.pdf]
Typical of the Islamist mindset, Shamsieh believes in limiting the line of inquiry when it strays to the type of topic that naturally might inconvenient questions:
"I don't believe schools are a place to debate political views on international affairs or any other affairs that are not related to teaching our children."
As is usually the case in such matters, the Saudi Wahhabist funded Council on American Islamic Relations is now also pushing this hoax via its newsletter
These attempts are happening all over the United States and are part of the Islamist agenda to suppress freedom of expression. Such efforts constitute evidence of the Islamists disregard for Constitutionally enumerated rights and a offer the briefest of glimpses as to what the radical fundamentalists mean when they push for Shar'ia.
For the record think of MPAC as a slicker, mor PR savvy CAIR, careful to position themselves as moderate but in reality no different.
Below from an MPAC Los Angeles radio broadcast on the afternoon of September 11, 2001.
"If we're going to look at suspects we should look to the groups that benefit the most from these kinds of incidents, and I think we should put the state of Israel on the suspect list because I think this diverts attention from what's happening in the Palestinian territories so that they can go on with their aggression and occupation and apartheid policies."
According to Dr. Daniel Pipes, Ahmed Younis, MPAC's then national director, said in March 2005, "that Adolf Eichmann was himself a Jew, so in fact Jews killed themselves in the Holocaust."
