WAYNE — Rola Awwad wants a private space for her 10-year-old son at Albert Payson Terhune Elementary School to exercise his right to Muslim prayer.
Adam Awwad, 10, praying at the Circassian Benevolent Association in Wayne after being driven there from school by his mother. The school district had offered to let him pray at recess — either outside or in a classroom while classmates are there. And that, says Awwad, is "unacceptable."
All students are constitutionally guaranteed the right to pray during the school day as long as it doesn't interfere with learning. But Wayne is struggling with what accommodations to make if a Muslim student requests privacy for prayer.
Adam Awwad, 10, praying
This is all about imposing Islam on infidels. This is creeping sharia. This is the march to Islamic domination.
This is about power. There is no special treatment for "special classes". This is how they impose their Islam on a secular society. Muslim footbaths in airports and universities, prayer times in public schools, prayer times in the work place …………. this is how you lose your country.
Former FBI Special agent John Guandolo:
"They're having great success of implementing Shariah law, I could give you a thousand examples," Guandolo said.
He said small concessions like installing foot baths, and colleges forced to have separate swimming times for Islamic men and women so not to offend Muslims, are other parts of the strategy.
Prayer is not required on a strict schedule and Muslim prayers are commonly “made up” after work or school in Islamic countries including Iran.
[…] Islamic authorities agree that foot baths are not required to fulfill their washing rituals prior to prayer and that provisions have been clearly defined. According to Islamic Law, you have a symbolic washing alternative or you can wash in one location and pray at another and this one washing can last you through an entire days prayers.
…..Provisions were made to “make up” prayers to accommodate people at work or school, allowing prayers to be postponed.
The footbaths and prayer initiatives are to impose their will upon us, not to honor ironclad religious responsibilities.
