Speaking Up About Islam in Indiana


The following letter was written by Marilyn Dudley (an Act for America Chapter Leader in Terre Haute, Indiana) and published in the Nov. 18, 2014 edition of The Tribune Star:

What’s in Your Child’s Textbook?

For this past year, a number of people across the U.S. were organized to review textbooks up for adoption in Texas. The total number of books reviewed by this group was 32 high school and/or middle school textbooks. Cumulatively TTT (Truth in Texas Textbooks) reviewers compiled 469 pages of factual errors, imbalanced presentation of materials, omission of information, opinions disguised as facts and additionally questions found in the teachers’ editions that are considered “agenda building” or “leading questions” to conclusions not supported by facts. The evaluations have now been posted on a public website — truthintexastextbooks.com.

As part of this effort, I helped grade these textbooks. The blatant lies, disinformation, anti-semitism, and the attacks (some subtle, some not) on America’s Judeo-Christian heritage and core values was prevalent in these books.

Continually throughout these books there was an attempt by the publishers to paint Islam as if it were “peaceful” and just a religion instead of presenting the unvarnished truth about its monstrous ideology; that it is (a) a political system, (b) an ideology that prescribes death to those who opt out, (c) an organization with a religious front that is at war with all free nations, and (d) has been responsible for the deaths of over 270 million human beings.

This group spent time finding factual evidence that backed up the findings, not only regarding the historical and current atrocities committed by Muslims, but also the secular humanists who promote moral relativism, trash our Constitution, blame America, and glorify Utopian re-distribution of wealth ideas.

The textbooks say very little about America’s greatness and its goodness. There is a lack of emphasis on America’s military heroes. The stories of great men and women who fought and died to preserve our nation used to be a standard part of teaching our kids to be responsible, proud and patriotic citizens. In the proposed textbooks that publishers are attempting to foist onto our youth, there is a lack of material that would inspire patriotic allegiance to God and country.

So you might ask why I would take the time to review textbooks that are being adopted in Texas. It is those textbooks that are adopted in Texas that will likely find their way into our own educational system in Indiana. As a citizen of Indiana, it is up to me and you to refuse to surrender this next generation of Americans to the evil change that is under way.

Our government, under the guise of Common Core, is promoting this abomination into our schools. I ask everyone to take the time to see what is in your child’s textbook, go to the website identified above and look at the reviews, and take a stand to restore America as the land of the free and home of the brave.

Muslims Must Fight Hard to Reform Islam

The excellent letter by Marilyn Dudley in the Nov. 18 Tribune-Star points out the political nature of Islam as it is today, unreformed and based on the Quran, Hadith and Sira. The current unreformed state of Islam prevents Muslims from coexisting peacefully with people of other cultures and religions.

For example, the Quran instructs Muslims to “not befriend Jews and Christians”( 5:51), “to slay the idolaters” (9:5), to “smite the necks (behead) non-believers” (47:4), etc. It makes no sense to be teaching these hate-filled ideas in mosques and then expecting Muslims to not act on them.

Unreformed Islam causes Muslims to persecute non-Muslims when Muslims are in a majority, and does not allow Muslims to live peacefully with non-Muslims when Muslims are in a minority.

Unreformed Islam has brought disrepute to Muslims globally and has raised suspicions about Muslims in countries where they are in a minority. Unreformed Islam is hurting Muslims everywhere. Instead of bringing about reform in Islam, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is seeking to criminalize the criticism of (unreformed) Islam everywhere. The United States Constitution is the best defense Americans have against “Sharia creep” and the curtailment of Freedom in the United States. The First Amendment of the United States Constitution must trump the efforts of the OIC.

The basis for a reformed Islam can be found in the teachings of Jalaluddin Rumi, the mystic and poet who commands universal respect. In his book, “The Teachings of Rumi,” Andrew Harvey writes: “Rumi combined the intellect of a Plato, the vision and enlightened soul-force of a Buddha or a Christ, and the extravagant literary gifts of a Shakespeare.”

As renowned scholars Ibn Warraq and Walid Phares point out, there is an ongoing “war of ideas.”

A reformed Islam will allow Muslims to join non-Muslims for the common good of all. Muslim intellectuals need to engage in this war of ideas. Non-Muslims are looking up to Muslim intellectuals to bring about reform in Islam. This “war of ideas” must be won, for the benefit of both Muslims and non-Muslims.

Reforming islam just is not possible, because islam by itself does not allow it.

There is only two ways with islam: you are a mozlim or you are AGAINST IT.

Anything else is just plain takkyia.

A reformed Islam would not change the threat from or the existence of unreformed Islam. These world class savages are having too much success with unreformed Islam to change anything. Reformed Islam is still Islam and provides acceptance of Islam and another path for Jihad. Please work on this problem: There is no existing organization that has a realistic plan to save Constitutional Freedom in the USA. Please use my name with this post e.g. "Bill Coleman".

This Muslim infiltration of the Amererican schools is yet annother Islamic attempt of steath jihad. Otherwise known as the method of gradualism. Which is rather sutble scheme in that strategy of gaining influence for Islam and winning the hearts and minds of the American young people for Islam. In other words achieving brainwashing for Islam in a subtle way. In some ways this is similar to the teachings of Sun Tzu in THE ART OF WAR. Which instructs "At first then, exhibit the coyness of a maiden,until the enemy gives you an oprning; afterwards emulate the rapidity of a running hare, and it will be too late for the enemy to oppose you."

Walter Sieruk 10:27 AM  

As for the idea of "reforming Islam," this is just a daydream of folly. For there ,in reality, is nothing good about the real essence of Islam on which to base the foundation of reform on. As the Bible teaches "That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered." Ecclesiastes 1:15. [K.J.V.]

"but also the secular humanists who promote moral relativism, trash our Constitution, blame America, and glorify Utopian re-distribution of wealth ideas"

I think she's talking about clueless angry liberals or faux atheists here, not, by definition, actual secular humanists and certainly not actual atheists. There are millions of pansy-*ssed angry clueless liberals out there who claim to be secular humanists and atheists, but they're simply not.

"Non-Muslims are looking up to Muslim intellectuals to bring about reform in Islam."

Seriously? I'm not. I guess that I didn't get the memo. Oh, well.

Reformed Islam? Is that like a cold Summer day?

Anonymous 1:30 PM  

Seriously, school students in America need know little more about Islam than it exists and it's monstrous. If they want to lean more about it when they're adults, well, so be it. I've read almost all stories on the Internet about schools teaching the lies of Islam and it's generally nothing but proselytizing for Islam. There must be Muslim money behind this push to cram Islam down the throats of American children.

It's clever the way Muslims have done this. Basically, they set up a mainstream Islamic organization and say to the textbook companies, "you can use us to help you with the Islamic history part. We have experts on the subject, and we can make sure what you say is accurate." The textbook companies think that sounds reasonable. Here's more about textbooks:

Reformed islam, that's a very good example of an oxymoron, something like islam is a religion,let alone one of peace. more like the religion of piece(s) - arms, legs and heads.

" muslim intellectuals" ? If they were intellectuals, they wouldn't believe in islam in the first place.! !! The quran does not allow for "reformation" ,it will not happen, remember that muhammad (the pedophile) said it was the perfect writing. After reading the quran,I knew it was a fraud and a plagerization of the Torah and the New Testament. I wonder if the muslim intellectuals realize the Torah was written 1500 years before the quran. ????

muslim oil money. ..hope oil goes down to 20.00 a barrel. .

Gail 2:06 PM  

It's been almost 1400 years since the beginnings of islam and there has been no reform. What makes no sense is that those who claim they want to reform islam aren't simply leaving it behind. Oh, yeah, there's the beheading thing for deserters.... hmmmm.

A simple and quick formula for reforming Islam: Revise the Koran.

Let a group of scholars from all religions sit down and review the Koran verse by verse. Eliminate or replace the violent verses by benevolent ones.

Citizen Warrior 5:09 PM  

I wrote to Ramachandra B. Abhyankar and told him there were several comments about his "reforming Islam" idea. He emailed me his nuanced and intelligent answer. This is what he said:

"For those who say an Islamic Reformation cannot or will not happen: I do not really disagree with you at all. Actually, I do not think that an Islamic Reformation will occur.

"But as we condemn Islam (and we all must condemn it) we may want to leave
an option for those who wish to take it. Islam has to be condemned and Muslim Immigration must end. Talk of Islamic Reform is just the "carrot" to accompany the "stick" which must be used. That way we also look reasonable and not "haters" as the incorrigible liberals call us.

"Education of the public about the evil of Islam must continue. Solidarity with non-Muslims suffering in the Islamic World must be stressed.

"The Reformation is actually an overhaul — involving a change of Prophet (from Muhammad to Rumi) and change of Holy Book (from the Koran, Hadith and Sira to Rumi's Mathnawi). Our support of Rumi makes us look enlightened and not xenophobic.

"What Rumi taught was the exact opposite of Muhammad.

"For example: The Quran 9/5 says: 'Slay the idolaters wherever you find them.'

"But Rumi says, 'Come, come whoever you are, whether you be fire worshipers, idolaters or pagans. Ours is not the dwelling place of despair. Anyone who enters will receive a welcome here.' (Sign in English at Rumi's Mausoleum in Konya, Turkey).

"In contrast, we all know that Non-Muslims cannot enter Mecca.

"I am fully aware that an Islamic Reformation will not occur. But we look good when we support a 'reformed' Islam, even as we destroy 'unreformed Islam.'

"That is just my 2 cents worth."

It's my understanding that if you are a true Muslim , you follow the Islam faith in the Quran . And it's within these pages that are filled with hate towards anyone that does not convert to and or believe in Islam. They believe you should slaughter anyone that does not believe in what they believe in. Very underdeveloped and misguided individuals.

One of the most unusual articles on CitizenWarrior.com is Pleasantville and Islamic Supremacism.

It illustrates the Islamic Supremacist vision by showing the similarity between what happened in the movie, Pleasantville, and what devout fundamentalist Muslims are trying to create in Islamic states like Syria, Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia (and ultimately everywhere in the world).
