Whitewashing Jihad In The Schools

Three years ago, I wrote
about a mock terrorism drill at a public school district
in Muskegon County, Mich. Instead of Islamic terrorists,
educators substituted Christian homeschoolers. [Anti-Homeschooling

Christian homeschoolers.
Here was the description of
the school drill plan:

exercise will simulate an attack by a fictitious radical
group called Wackos Against Schools and Education who
believe everyone should be homeschooled. Under the
scenario, a bomb is placed on the bus and is detonated
while the bus is traveling on Durham, causing the bus to
land on its side and fill with smoke."

Flabbergasting, but true.
In the


and the

jihadists` carnage
against schoolchildren in

Beslan, Russia,
the school chose to prepare their
students for an attack by Christian homeschooling "wackos",
not Muslim suicide bombers.

Unfortunately, little has
changed. Last month, New Jersey`s Burlington Township
High School held its own mock terrorism drill. "You
perform as you practice,"
Superintendent Chris Manno

"We need to practice under conditions as real as
possible in order to evaluate our procedures and plans
so that they`re as effective as possible."

But the "real as
conditions included no bomb-vest-donning

How many other
jihad-whitewashing mock terrorism drills have been
conducted using tax dollars? How long before we mimic
the British schools, where the

Holocaust is being dropped from history lessons
avoid offending

Muslim pupils?

American educators have
been bending to the will of the grievance-mongers ever
since the 9/11 attacks. Remember the

jihad-sympathizing admonition
included in the

National Education Association`s
post-9/11 curriculum:

"Do not suggest that any group is responsible"

for the terrorist attacks, parents and teachers were

the Muslim lobby.

Here is a

"real as possible"
scenario. Last month, you`ll
recall, counterterrorism officials sent cautionary
bulletins to police departments nationwide warning that
suspected members of extremist groups have signed up as
school bus drivers in the United States. The "extremists"
being investigated by the FBI and other agencies are
foreigners who have been able to "purchase buses and
acquire licenses."

Who are these
? Hint: They are not Presbyterian or
Lutheran or Catholic homeschooling wackos.

In Indonesia last month, a
theological school was reportedly attacked by religious
terrorists in Jakarta. The school was

evangelical Christian.
The terrorists were Muslim.
In southern Thailand, attackers hurled explosives and
opened fire on an Islamic school,

killing three students.
According to reports, police
believe that Muslim insurgents staged the attack in an
attempt to convince villagers that authorities were
responsible—a ploy to win villagers over to the
insurgents` cause.

And in the name of winning
Iraqis over to their blood-stained cause this week, a
suicide truck bomber carrying food supplies killed

eight Iraqi schoolgirls
and a baby in the northern
oil city of Kirkuk. The truck bomber was a crusader, all
right. But not the kind American students are being
taught to drill against in their make-believe bubbles.

In our government
institutions of perpetual ignorance maintenance, "D"
is for dhimmitude. They are teaching our children all
too well.
