DEFENDING THE WEST
Islamists bully teacher in rural America
Exclusive: Pamela Geller defends woman in crosshairs of 'Hamas-CAIR'
Mary Janda is a middle school teacher at the Concrete Middle School
in the small town of Concrete in Skagit County, Wash. One of her former
students said about her: “I’ve never met another teacher who put so much
effort into our education. She put in mile after extra mile.” But on
Oct. 29, 2012, she held a class on bullying that ironically has made her
a target of the thugs at the local chapter of the Hamas-tied Council on
American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), who have been bullying her ever
We see this pattern repeated in small towns and cities across
America. Hamas-CAIR, armed with millions of dollars from Islamic
supremacist countries, is waging its own stealth jihad in our schools,
workplaces and political arenas. They have enormous funds to harass,
intimidate and bully small, ill-equipped organizations and individuals
who have the audacity to tell the truth about jihad violence and Islamic
supremacism. Mary Janda is just one of many.
The Muslim persecution of Mary Janda began with a discussion of
bullying in her classroom. A Hamas-CAIR press release claimed that Janda
“compared Muslims to Nazis during a class lesson on bullying. The
teacher allegedly stated that ‘just like Hitler,’ Muslims train their
children from birth to give their lives to Allah and are raised to be
martyrs. She also allegedly stated that Muslim children are raised and
taught to ‘kill innocents.’”
The real story is that Janda was talking about Hamas and the Taliban,
not all Muslims. A student said during the class: “My father is a
Muslim and these statements are not true.” Janda recounts what happened
next: “I explained to her that I was not talking about Arabs and Muslims
in general, but groups that chose to impose their will by training
people to intimidate and kill other people. This discussion was not
about religious beliefs. It is related to a state mandate that public
schools teach students about bullying and not allow it.”
The student’s father brushed aside this explanation and went to the
bullies of Hamas-CAIR, who asked for an investigation of the incident
and demanded that the Concrete School District “ensure that absolutely
no retaliation occurs against the father, student, or any other parents”
– while publishing the student’s photo and the father’s name on its
website, even as it asked the media to protect the anonymity of the
father and the student.
Hamas-CAIR also demanded that the school district “clarify which
textbooks and texts are used in the district,” so that they could make
sure that books including their propaganda be used; “clarify the
religious accommodation policies of the district”; and “institute
CAIR-WA’s diversity training for all employees of Concrete School
District” – among other demands.
The Concrete School District did investigate and found out that Janda
had done nothing wrong. But true to form, Hamas-CAIR was not satisfied.
Crying racism, the CAIR thugs even demanded that the Justice Department
Eric Archuletta, the chairman of the Mary Janda Support Committee,
pointed out to me that CAIR-Washington kept its account of this incident
on its website even after Janda was cleared by the school district and
“even after they were told about making false accusations at their
community forum meeting on March 24, 2013.” Archuletta continued:”My
committee and I feel that this is one of two things: either CAIR is
totally incompetent, or this is a message they are trying to send to
their supporters that this incident is indeed a factual event. We all
agree it is the latter. Either way it is unacceptable.”
It is most assuredly deliberate. This is what they do: defame, smear
and libel anyone who gets in the way of their sinister agenda.
