–Where is the separation of mosque and state?
–If special accommodation is going to be made for Islam, where are the days devoted to Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Sikhism, Mormonism, Bahai’ism, et al?
–Is this not a violation of the establishment clause? Taxpayer dollars are being used to fund dawah (proselytizing for Islam).
Why aren’t these teachers being given a seminar by Robert Spencer and Ibn Warraq about the jihadic doctrine and Islam’s 1,400 year history of jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural annihilation and enslavements?
— The global jihad is the greatest national security threat this country faces? What are these teachers doing to prepare our children for what’s here and what’s coming?

“Teachers bow to Allah, celebrate Islam,” By Cheryl Chumley, WND, June 10, 2015
About 50 teachers and administrators at one Pennsylvania school district attended a recent training session on Islam and Arabic culture, during an all-day in-service workshop that came at taxpayer expense.The workshop in the town of Lebanon was led by a former district Arabic translator, Mohamed Omar, who “took time off from his new job as a case worker for the Department of Human Services in Philadelphia to share his knowledge of Islam with the staff,” the Lebanon Daily News reported.
In “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance,” renowned activist Pamela Geller provides the answer, offering proven, practical guidance on how freedom lovers can stop jihadist initiatives in local communities.
The training session included a comparison-contrast of U.S.-Arab education, as well as a visit to a local mosque to learn more about the Islamic religion – and to join in the congregation’s prayer service, the news outlet said.
“We have so many students from different Hispanic countries, but slowly but surely the Arabic population is growing,” Omar said, EAGNews.org reported. “With Hispanics you have the language differences and certainly cultural differences, but there are similarities in their religious practices. Of course, the Arab language and the religion are very much different, but we are learning that there are also many similarities.”
Teachers and administrators removed their shoes at the mosque and mingled with the congregation, discussing God, Islam and Christianity, the news outlet reported.
“We believe we will be judged by God,” Omar said, at the mosque, EAGNews.org reported. “The more good deeds we do, God will forgive us in the end. … You must work. Faith without work will not be accepted.”
Teachers were given opportunity to ask questions and afterwards, called the event informative.
“It’s important that we educate ourselves about cultures that are different from our own and that we try to eliminate some misunderstandings,” said Lara Book, one of the teachers who attended, EAGNews.org reported. “And any way that I can communicate with my students … that makes it more meaningful or easier, it is a vital tool.”
Book also said: “Basically, although our cultures are different, the fundamentals of them are similar and we all want the same things, happiness for our families, health, and success. Although we might go about finding those things in our lives differently, from a cultural standpoint, we all want the same thing.”
