Religion • Sixth Grader’s Field Trip to Mosque to Bow Down to Allah! Two Videos
Americans for Peace and Tolerance released a video showing 6th graders from Wellesley, MA as they rise from prostrating themselves alongside Muslim men in a prayer to Allah while on a public school field trip to the largest mosque in the Northeast. Teachers did not intervene. Parents had not been told. And where was the ACLU? Not a peep from them. It is only Christianity that they fear and work to make illegal. You will see a video of this outrage along with another video of my interview on this for the national radio program, Issues in Education.
The video below was taken inside the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center – Boston’s controversial Saudi-funded mega-mosque – during a Wellesley Middle School social studies trip to the mosque, ostensibly taken to learn about the history of Islam first-hand. The video reveals that the students are acitively participating in a Muslim religious service which of couse would be blatantly forbidden for public school students to participate in a Christian church service.
The Islamic Society of Boston was founded by Abdulrahman Alamoudi, who is currently serving 23 years in jail on terror charges. For years, its board of trustees included Yusuf al Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood who was banned by Bill Clinton from the United States in 1999. Qaradawi now chairs the Muslim American Society’s university, which offers classes inside the mosque. Over half the mosque’s $15.5 million price tag was funded by wealthy Saudis and since it opened, several of its leaders, donors and members have been implicated in Islamic extremism.
The mosque leadership continues to be embraced by top Massachusetts political and religious leaders. These include Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, as well as a group of local progressive rabbis and Christian clergy, who all insist despite evidence to the contrary that the mosque is moderate and its critics are just bigots. Let this be repeated, uninformed, downright stupid CHRISTIAN CLERGY endorse this mosque!
Take a look at this video taken inside this ‘moderate mosque’ during this coerced worship service by public school children:
And here is a link to the broadcast I did in response to that field trip, as aired nationwide by Issues in Education:
