Dudes and dudettes…some of you may have read this news yesterday regarding a teacher in Texas requiring students to wear burqas for a class assignment about geography etc. If you don’t know about any of this news yet, you need to read the story in full right off the bat…it should set your hair on fire, to say the least!
Here’s the start of this story from Todd Starnes: A Texas lawmaker is launching an investigation after a teacher reportedly invited female students to dress up in Islamic garb and then told her classroom they should call Muslim terrorists – freedom fighters.

Now friends…I caught this story this morning about this issue at the American Thinker, see what you think:
Todd Starnes of Fox News radio reports that Texas State Sen. Dan Patrick, chairman of the senate education committee, is launching an investigation, after outraged parents provided photographic evidence that their Lumberton (Texas) High School children were required to don burqas (and other Muslim garb), as part of an ostensible “geography lesson” on Islam.
Moreover, students, as part of this unabashed Islamophilic indoctrination process at Lumberton High School, were told by their teacher, “we’re going to change the way we perceive Islam,” who then also proceeded to instruct them to compose an essay, according to the report, “based on a Washington Post story that blamed Egypt’s troubles on democracy – instead of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Such involuntary Islamic dawa in school must be thoroughly investigated, condemned, and permanently disallowed.
I suggest as an adjunct “corrective,” that it also be required of the Lamberton High School teacher of this geography class, and recommended for the students, to read Mark Steyn’s caustic analysis of the murderous Muslim rioting in Nigeria during November, 2002, in advance of the Miss World beauty pageant (prompted by an article in the Lagos newspaper “This Day,” which suggested Islam’s prophet Muhammad would have been happy to marry one of the contestants). The teacher should be further required, and the students encouraged (with parental accompaniment, given the R-rated language) to watch this video of Steyn’s hilarious performance of “My Sharia Amour” (London, Ontario, November 1, 2010).
Below are samples of Steyn’s original 2002 lyrics, which he expanded and updated circa November of 2010.
As usual, there are highlighted links inside this report, as well as a bit more to read at the bottom if you’re interested.
According to the first report here, some of the students said they were told to read from the Koran as well. This supposedly is ‘diversity education!’ – The teacher also stated she didn’t necessarily agree with the lesson but she was required to do so.
What do you think about all of this? Personally, I cannot believe what’s going on in our schools across this land anymore…this is just one more example of why!
