Allah gets the Boot

Finally. Some good news!

Indiana School Removes 'Allah' From Holiday Show After Protests

Monday, December 14, 2009


An elementary school in Indiana reportedly removed a mention of Allah in its holiday show after protests from a national conservative Christian group.

Lantern Road Elementary Principal Danielle Thompson told IndyStar.com that school officials in Fishers, Ind., attempted to teach inclusiveness through the second-grade program that included portions on Christmas, Hanukkah, Ramadan, Las Posadas and Kwanzaa.

"It went off last night without a hitch," Thompson told the Web site. "Several families thought it was a nice program."

Thompson said officials removed the phrase "Allah is God," however, after the American Family Association complained about the program on its electronic newsletter. The alteration was made because no other deities were named in the program.

Shariq Siddiqui, executive director of the Muslim Alliance of Indiana, told the Web site that the decision to remove the word Allah was most certainly not inclusive.

"It's unfortunate if that was removed from the program just because of Islamophobic feelings," Siddiqui told the Web site. "Schools are a place where we should learn more about each other rather than exclude each other based on stereotypes and misconceptions."

Siddiqui said "Allah" is the Arabic word for God and is used by Jews, Christians and others in Arabic-speaking nations.

Allah's Messenger Muhammad taught
hatred, and the killing and/or subduing of all non-believers (kafir) >

"...strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah, and your enemies." Qur'an 8:60

If our school-boards elect to teach about the Islamic God, should they not also teach the 1400 year history of holy wars, and slaughter of non-believers, plus maimings, the suicidal bombings, beheadings, honor-killings and stoning of women that continues even into this century in nations like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Afganistan, Pakistan, Syria & Jordan, plus in much of the African continent today?

Muslim men think of their women as
property, not lifetime-partners.

The Saudi madrassa (schools) in Northern Virginia teach grim stuff, and their "scholarly" Imams justify the blood-letting & the terror. "I have been made victorious with terror." Bukhari, Vol 4, Book 52, Number 220 >

Our schools, at all levels, should teach exactly what's in their books and instruction manuels in the Muslim Madrassa Curriculum!

Islam is proof that mixing religion with government is one of mankind's worst ideas.
