Hamas Linked CAIR Trying To Force Schools To Rewrite History of 9/11
Taking a chapter out of what we see with BLM protests, false claims of victimhood, the Hamas-linked Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is using claims of victimhood to try to force schools to rewrite the history of 9/11.
Amr Shabaik of CAIR-LA is the one leading this charge, yet for some odd reason, he is unable to show any evidence of Muslim students being targetted when 9/11 is discussed. Desperate to keep the root causes of why the terrorist attacked us on 9/11. The claim is that the students could come under hostilities if the truth is known, so the truth must be silenced at all cost.
In a letter he wrote:
(LOS ANGELES, CA – 9/10/2020) – The Greater Los Angeles Area office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-LA) today announced it sent a letter to school districts and universities throughout the Greater Los Angeles area to encourage educators to promote diversity, inclusivity, and mutual understanding when discussing the anniversary of September 11, 2001 (“9/11”).
In the letter dated Sept. 4, CAIR-LA Civil Rights Managing Attorney Amr Shabaik wrote:
“The tragic events of 9/11 exposed and widened society’s divisions and made the global community even more precarious as it pertains to the cooperative nature of nations and the rule of international law.
“Since then, federal, state, and local governments have all tried numerous methods with varying degrees of success to address America’s unresolved issues of racial, ethnic, and religious bias in order to reconcile our nation with its foundational values, such as religious freedom, diversity, and serving the world as a country of financial opportunity and political refuge.
“Many attempts also have been made by school administrators, district boards, and other nonprofit organizations to address and improve our nation’s loss of purpose and degrading culture. Unfortunately, despite their good intentions, some educators may be unaware of the biases that they impart upon their students.
To safeguard against such implicit or explicit biases in classrooms, we recommend proactively training your educators to facilitate a neutral lesson plan that teaches students about 9/11 in a nuanced way that does not conflate the entire religion of Islam with the tragic events of 9/11.”
CAIR-LA also provided a list of educational resources for educators to supplement their lesson plans. Provided in those resources are recommended steps for an instructor to take, including:
- Being sensitive to religious diversity in your classroom and choose your language carefully when referring to the perpetrators. Educators should be mindful of stereotyping the Muslim community and how this could have an impact on students.
- Being sensitive to the visual materials – photos, videos, audio – and their emotional nature and potential impact upon students. Choose materials that clearly meet the goals and objectives of the lesson.
- Instructors should avoid articulating their personal political beliefs about 9/11.
- Being sensitive to the vulnerability of students who have a history of trauma in their own lives and how they may connect this event to their personal experiences.
- Avoiding having students engage in educational activities that simulate the roles of perpetrators, bystanders, upstanders, etc.
This is interesting, with the time removed from 9/11, almost 20 years there is no more evidence of hostilities shown to Muslims then there is towards the Japanese for World War 2, but it does not prevent the claim of Islamophobia from being used. Yet this does not matter, all Shabaik offers are feelings: “The survey, conducted by CAIR California in 2018-2019, revealed that nearly 1 in 3 Muslim students do not feel safe, welcomed and respected at school, with 29.35% of students reporting that school staff made offensive comments about Islam or Muslims at school.”
The possibility that many Muslim students do not feel safe, welcomed, or respected doesn’t actually tell us anything about the behavior of administrators or students. All it tells us is that many Muslim students do not feel safe, welcomed, or respected. Their feelings may be entirely unjustified by the reality of the situation. Also, “29.35% of students” claim “that school staff made offensive comments about Islam or Muslims at school.” Offensive in whose eyes? Since Hamas-linked CAIR and so many other Muslim groups claim that any honest examination of the motivating ideology behind jihad terrorism is offensive, it is impossible to know whether the school staff really said something genuinely offensive, or simply made an accurate observation about Islam.
In any case, by advancing the wholly spurious claim that Muslim students are endangered by discussion of 9/11 that examines the role of Islamic doctrine in the events of that day, Hamas-linked CAIR clearly endeavors to shut down that discussion. Who benefits from that? What would be the result of students having no idea why the hijackers attacked on 9/11? They would be more complacent regarding the jihad threat than they might be otherwise. Apparently, that is what CAIR wants.
This is a tried-and-true tactic. I have run into this with the articles I have published. When I showed how radicalization came due to the percentage of Muslims in a nation, I was accused of Islamophobia, never once were they able to disprove what was stated, they thought accusations would be enough to silence the truth, it is obvious they did not know me very well, I responded by writing two more articles.
When the next article came out, where polling around the world was taken of Islamic support for terror Google took my site off of Google News, Facebook came under intense pressure to shut my site down (I am thankful they did not.
But the final nail in the coffin was when I looked at the history of the claim that Jerusalem had any historical connection to the Palestinians, then exposed the claim that Mohammad visited a site that did not exist until 60 years after his death, this brought death threats, so I continued writing more. Thankfully I think it was finally realized that threats have the opposite effect, but the attacks continue against the site.
I am not a threat to Muslims, the peaceful ones, I would happily fight for their right to thrive in this nation, and see that their rights are protected, but the ones that wish to harm, to bring violence I will continue to expose them, no matter the cost.
