Glad to know that Houston, Texas hasn’t become completely dhimmified like Dearbornistan, Michigan.

Principal reassigned over Islam presentation

FRIENDSWOOD, Texas — A junior high school principal who allowed a group to make a presentation about Islam to students is no longer on the job.

Robin Lowe “has accepted another administrative position effective immediately,” the school district said in a statement late Wednesday.

Lowe was the principal of Friendswood Junior High when the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Houston gave a presentation described as “Islam 101″ to about 875 seventh- and eighth-grade students last month, the district said.

Council president Tarek Hussein said he contacted Lowe about the educational presentation after hearing from a father who said his son was physically attacked at the school because he is Muslim. Since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Muslim students often get teased and called terrorists, Hussein pointed out.

But community members and parents of children at the predominantly Anglo and Christian school complained about the assembly.

David Bradley, a member of the State Board of Education whose district includes Friendswood, said the assembly was not an appropriate response to an attack on a student.

“There’s a personal incident between two students and as a result of that we’re going to yank everyone out of class?” he said. “I got beat up in junior high. Did my dad go down and force all the kids to sit through sensitivity training in their P.E. class? No, that’s absurd. The coach gave us licks and sent us home. That was the end of those incidents.”

Friendswood Superintendent Trish Hanks sent a letter to parents and community members saying she had authorized the presentation for staff only.

“My concern for our community and for our students is not as much with the content of the presentation as explained to me but with the fact that a group had an audience with our students without consent from parents or this administration,” Hanks wrote.

Texas law lets parents to remove their children from a class or activity that conflicts with their religious or moral beliefs. But schools are not required to send home permission slips before delving into potentially controversial lessons, said Debbie Ratcliffe, a spokeswoman for the Texas Education Agency.

CAIR’s Houston chapter has done a similar presentation on Islam in the Clear Creek School District and plans to ask other districts for a chance to present the program, Hussein said.

“We have to be good to each other and understand each other better,” he said. “That’s why we offer this program.”

Funny, I always hear dhimmis calling for tolerance of islam, yet not one single time have I heard an imam calling for tolerance in any of the muslim countries I have been to. Nor have I ever heard a Hizballah rally ending with chants calling for tolerance. No, instead they chant “DEATH TO AMERICA!” while CAIR maintains islam is a religion of peace.

    Why are Muslim countries always in the stone age? It’s because the fanatical Muslims spend nearly all their time washing their feet and praying to Satan/Allah. You heard me right. I said Satan/Allah. Did you know that if you followed and obeyed the Muslim Qur’an you would break every Commandment of the God of the Christians and the Jews?

    Proof will come later, but for starters, the Qur’an commands the Muslims to “slay the infidels.” Also, the Qur’an states that Christians and Jews are “pigs and apes.” There are many more violent examples, but like I said, that will come later. Now, do you understand why Allah is actually Satan/Allah and not the True God of Love, the God of the Christians and Jews? Since Muslims obey Satan/Allah, is it any wonder that many Muslims are so violent?

    May the God of the Christians and Jews bless you, and may Satan/Allah go to hell.

    Yes Philip, also note that islam appeals to violent people because of its violent suras(chapters). Look at how islam recruits people in prison. Look at how the muslims of the sudan behave. They cut off hands and feet of children. They rape children as young as 5 or 6 years old.. All over the middle east the muslims love beheading someone. Even the perverted Indonesians get into beheading people. And their religion makes them cheap bastards too. Christians are told to tithe 10% of their income…muslims have ..zakat..of 2.5%. And they pray to a silver vagina shaped thing that has a ‘black stone’ inside of it!! They actually kiss this thing! Talk about idolatry. Its just a religion for non-thinking people.

    Friends, THE ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL ISLAM APOSTASY DAY is the second Friday in October of this year. Pass the good word. Encourage the good Muslims to meet at a certain place on that special day. If they wish, they may identify themselves with an arm band of some special color. If “infidels” are near, maybe you would like to meet this special, courageous group. Thanks. May the God of Love bless you, and may Satan/Allah go to hell.

    Rudy, I’ve lived a long time, and I have heard thousands of lies in my lifetime. Out of those thousands of lies, the biggest lie that I have heard is that “Islam is the religion of peace.” It’s also the most hateful lie that I have heard. It becomes even more hateful if I sit and think of all the cruelty, suffering and sadness that Islam has perpetrated since its inception.
