Islamic “values” are seeping into charter schools and via the Discovery Channel and Gulen movement
By Suzanne Eovaldi, staff writer ( this is a special edition of Sunday’s with Suzanne)
Our school children are facing Muslim indoctrination with “The 99″ project which is set to air in January with a 13 episode series on the Discovery Channel for Kids. President Obama praised this media event for capturing young imaginations by “teaching tolerance for Islam” at his recent Washington, D.C. Presidential Summit speech.
This new series is using animated adventure heroes to depict the 99 attributes of Allah in what the London Times (1) is saying “the show’s mission is to instill old fashioned Islamic values” into our Christian children.
Kathy Bright of the Bright Media network has developed (2) The Shield Bearer project to counter the Islamization of our children by using new God centered action heroes. “The 99″ project describes two Muslim heroes as Jabbar The Powerful: from Saudi Arabia and Widad The Loving: from the Philippines, while calling Darr The Afflicter: the United States role model.
Islamic charter schools
Another very troubling and similar trend is threatening to take over America’s charter school movement. “A secretive foreign network of Islamic radicals now operates dozens of charter schools which receive government money (3) but are not required to adopt a state approved curriculum” says reporter Stephen Schwartz.
The Gulen Movement is based on a Turkish view of world peace expounded by Fethullah Gulen. Work visa teachers from Turkey are being brought in to teach at innocuous sounding schools such as Magnolia Science Academy, Daisy Educational Corporations Sonoran Science Academy and Beehive Science and Technology Academy. Most of these “schools” are in Arizona, Utah, California, Ohio, and Texas. (4)
American parents, desperate to find alternatives to our nation’s failed Public School System, are turning to these schools hoping to boost their children’s math and science scores Nevertheless, they are not being told about the background of the Gulen Movement. Kelly Wayment, parent of three children in the Beehive Academy summarily was removed from his administrative board post when officials learned he emailed other parents (5) about the teachers from Turkey, an Islamist country. A Beehive first year history teacher was fired (6) when he complained to the state board about distorted Holocaust and World War II lesson plans.
Reporter Schwartz, writing in the American Thinker, says, “Americans should ask both why and how the Islamist Gulen movement has managed to establish such a large presence for Turkish religious political indoctrination in [our] publicly financed education [system] . . . .and should unite to oppose it.” (7) You can go to the web site of the patriotic Act!forAmerica to request a list of the 85 primary and secondary Gulen movement schools operating in the United States.
Watch for words such as science academy, math and science curricula, math and science schools. Question further when presented with high student performance ratings. Were lower performing children just eased out of the schools to keep the ratings high? We need to take action now to block “The 99″ series from the Discovery Channel for Kids until further investigation determines if covert donors and covert methods are being used to indoctrinate our children. We’re living in very dangerous times. Our country’s very foundations are being attacked in many ways. Keep a heads up on this one. Email Fox News and the Discovery Channel.
