Schools bow down to Islam

Bowing Down To Islam

(World Net Daily)  -  High schools across America are being pressured to offer time off school, in-school prayer rooms, and special dietary demands by Muslim students observing the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
One campus in Brooklyn has agreed not to serve food at its prom until after sundown while another school in upstate New York is setting up prayer rooms to satisfy the demands of students who observe Ramadan.
Among the Muslim groups agitating for special privileges for Muslim students are the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Muslim Student Association and Sound Vision.
Sound Vision offers on its website a “6-Step Guide” for Muslims on how to pressure their local schools into granting “religious accommodations” for Islam. The guidelines instruct parents to know U.S. laws about religious freedom and then “get the support of a teacher.” The guidelines start with the following statement:
“Does your child need a prayer room to perform Zuhr in during lunchtime? Does he need time off for Juma? Or do you want to convince a teacher or principal to give your daughter the day off for Eid-ul-Fitr?
“Whatever Islamic obligation you want accommodated at your child’s school, it must be done in a methodical, clear and proper manner.”
It also helps to get the local media on your side.
Brooklyn Tech seniors will gather at Pier Sixty in Manhattan for their prom on June 3, but not all their classmates will be able to attend, lamented the local ABC affiliate, WABC-TV.
That’s because the party this year falls during Ramadan, a month-long time of fasting and prayer.
In an online petition started by the Muslim Student Association, an offshoot of the extremist Muslim Brotherhood, students are asking school officials to move the prom to another day.
In an effort to accommodate the MSA, school officials said they won’t allow food to be served at the prom until after Muslim fasting ends at 9 p.m.
The principal also met with the MSA Tuesday “to make sure this never happens again,” WABC reported.
