Islam Prostlizing in TN 7th Gade Social Studies Textbook

Salt and Light Guest Tuesday 27 October Robert McDaniel, Parent volunteer who was kicked out of
his son's school for sharing with his fellow library workers that were complaining to him about having to write their names in Arabic and their being lied to about Islam in their 7th Grade Social Studies Textbook by Pearson titled, My World History and Geography; Middle Age to the Exploration of the America's.   Below we have copied the review of the text by retired College
Professor Dr. Bill French who's summary work on Islem can be ordered from his website www.politicalislam.org. The T before the page refers to the teachers text as opposed to the Pg. #
without the T refer to the student's text page.

During Salt and Light we played the Russia Today UTube news story with a Yajasiti Father who had
spent $70,000 rescuing women and children from a slave market being run by ISIL.  Please watch
this real example of how Mohamed's followers follow him today in ISIL's Army that has occupied
Mosel northern Iraq.  https://www.rt.com/shows/news/319872-rtnews-october-26-17msk/
Review by Dr. Bill French
Pearson Education – 6-7th grade - Geography: The Middle Ages to Exploration of the Americas
Kaspiel, et al, 2015
With regards to Islam this textbook rises to a half-truth, at best. There is a constant apologist bias in refusing to talk about Islamic cruelty. This text is more like propaganda than critical thought applied to history. The missing pieces are massive in scope. The suffering caused by slavery, jihad, dhimmitude and the Sharia annihilated the native civilizations in Egypt, North Africa, Lebanon, Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Turkey, and Iraq. Jihad has murdered over 200 million people, but no hint is given. The text does not speak of the Islamic basis for slave trade that supplied the slaves who came to America.
Pg: T26, Header reads: Islamic Civilization, Chapter Resource Guide
Under Assignment: Students will produce an article on links to Muslim religion and culture. Would it be permitted to show the jihad verses in the Koran and violence against Christians?
World History, page 73
The text uses Ibn Battuta’s voyage as a device to explore Islamic culture. Any reader of the original work would wonder if the fact that Ibn Battua’s purchase of a slave for sex on his journey will be mentioned. One further wonders if his recording of the jihad for slaves in Africa, which he recorded, will be mentioned, as well.
The larger question is what will happen if a well-informed student mentioned this fact?
Pg. 74
“Christians and Jews were allowed to practice their religion freely…”
This is a lie. Christians and Jews were ruled by the dhimmi laws of Sharia law. Here is one set of the laws they ruled them:
So the progression was as follows: first jihad, then dhimmitude, and then the destruction of the native dhimmi culture. This became the model for the next 1400 years. The dhimmi became a second-class citizen in Islam and paid a heavy poll tax called the jizya. Only Jews and Christians and, sometimes, Magians (Zoroastrians) had the choice of becoming dhimmis. Buddhists, Hindus, and animists had the choice of death or conversion.
It was Umar, the second caliph, who set the standards for dhimmitude. His treaty with the dhimmis states:
We shall not build, in our cities or in their neighborhood new monasteries, churches, convents, or monks’ cells, nor shall we repair, by day or by night, such of them as fall in ruins or are situated in the quarters of the Muslims.
We shall keep our gates wide open for passersby and travelers. We shall give board and lodging to all Muslims who pass our way for three days.
We shall not give shelter in our churches or in our dwellings to any spy nor hide him from the Muslims.
We shall not manifest our religion publicly nor convert anyone to it. We shall not prevent any of our kin from entering Islam if they wish it.
We shall show respect toward the Muslims, and we shall rise from our seats when they wish to sit.
We shall not seek to resemble the Muslims by imitating any of their garments.
We shall not mount on saddles, nor shall we gird swords nor bear any kind of arms nor carry them on our persons.
We shall not engrave Arabic inscriptions on our seals.
We shall not sell fermented drinks.
We shall clip the fronts of our heads (keep a short forelock as a sign of humiliation).
We shall always dress in the same way wherever we may be, and we shall bind the zunar round our waists.
We shall not display our crosses or our books in the roads or markets of the Muslims. We shall only use clappers in our churches very softly. We shall not raise our voices when following our dead. We shall not take slaves who have been allotted to Muslims.
We shall not build houses higher than the houses of the Muslims.
Whoever strikes a Muslim with deliberate intent shall forfeit the protection of this pact.
(from Al-Turtushi, Siraj Al-Muluk, p. 229-30)
But this excerpt cannot really describe the world of the dhimmi. Islam dominated all public space. The government was Islamic; the education was Islamic; dress was Islamic; literature was Islamic. Only inside the dhimmi’s house could there be no Islam. The word of a dhimmi could not be used in court against a Muslim and crimes against dhimmis were rarely prosecuted.
The wealth of Islam came from the wealth and labor of the subjugated dhimmis. This had been true ever since Mohammed sent out his first jihadists to raid a Meccan caravan. From that day onward, Islam became wealthy through violence against the non-Muslim. The perfect example of the Jews of Khaybar
as dhimmis was used again and again. First jihad took the spoils of war and slaves; then the dhimmi tax system produced yearly wealth. Islam is a political system with a divine license to take what is wanted from dar al harb, the land of war.
Page T35
“Living in Arabia”
Will students be allowed to comment on the fact that Jews, pagans and Christians are not allowed to live in the most important parts of Arabia?
Pg. 79
The summary of Mohammed’s career does not truly reflect his actual history.
It should be noted that Mohammed averaged an event of violence every 6 weeks for the last 9 years of his life. Mohammed preached the religion of Islam for 13 years in Mecca and converted 150 Arabs to Islam. In Medina jihad for 9 years caused every Arab to convert. It was jihad that made Islam successful, not religion. Here is plot of the growth of Islam.
Five Pillars of Islam
Prayer is one of the Five Pillars. Every Muslim prays over a dozen times a day to recognize that Christians have gone astray and that Jews anger Allah. Surly, such curses should be taught to Christians and Jews.
Pg. T42
Re: Eid al-Fitr feast
The text does not mention that the first Eid was Mohammed’s celebration of his successful killing of non-Muslims at the Battle of Badr.
Pg. 81
In discussing the Hadith, they only mention the “good” hadith. For instance, Mohammed said, “Never ask a man why he beats his wife.”
Pg. 82
The Five Pillars.
Prayer is one of the Five Pillars. Every Muslim prays over a dozen times a day to recognize that Christians have gone astray and that Jews anger Allah. Surly, such curses should be taught to Christians and Jews.
It is also not mentioned that the Zakat charity cannot be used for Kafirs, non-Muslims. Only Muslims receive the Zakat charity. Indeed, part of the Zakat must go to jihad.
Pg. 85
Concerning the Sharia:
The Sharia is declared to be the only acceptable form of government. The Sharia does not only affect Muslims, but non-Muslims, Kafirs, as well. Kafirs must be dhimmis and be third class citizens under the Sharia. The Sharia is the justification of Muslims murdering 100,000 Christians last year.
Women can be beaten; children may be murdered by their parents.
All world governments must be centralized under the Caliph.
The Sharia defines jihad as war against the Kafirs. Jihad is a community obligation upon all Muslims. Jihad is properly called the Sixth Pillar.
Freedom of speech is denied under the Sharia. Apostates may be killed.
Pg 87
Empire—reasons for success:
The reason for Islamic success in war is its foundation in jihadic doctrine found in the Koran and the Hadith. Here we see how much of Islam’s sacred texts are devoted to jihad:
The success of the jihad can be seen in the Tears of Jihad: The Tears of Jihad
These figures are a rough estimate of the death of non-Muslims through the political use of jihad.
Islam ran the wholesale slave trade in Africa. About 25 million slaves were delivered to the market. But the wars to obtain slaves killed about 120 million, including the young, old, and sick left behind.
120 million Africans killed
The total number of Christians martyred by Islam is about 60 million.
60 million Christians killed
The country of India today is only half the size of ancient India, due to jihad.
80 million Hindus killed
Jihad killed the Buddhists in Turkey, Afghanistan, along the Silk Route, and in India. The total is roughly 10 million.
10 million Buddhists killed
Total 270,000,000 killed
This gives a rough estimate of 270 million killed by jihad.
Pg. 88
Men and Women
This paragraph does not even touch the subjugation of women under the Sharia. But the first lie is that Islam improved women’s rights. Before Mohammed, women could live independently and be a full citizen, for example, see Mohammed’ first wife, Kadija. After Mohammed, women could be beaten. Here is the best summary from the Hadith (the B in the index is from Bukhari):
Women are less intelligent than men. They are also spiritually inferior to men.
Once, after offering prayer at Musalla, Mohammed said to the women, “O women! Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell were women.” They asked, “Why is it so, O Allah’s Apostle?” He replied, “You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you.”
The women asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! What is deficient in our intelligence and religion?” He replied, “Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?” They agreed that this was so. He said, “This is the deficiency in her intelligence. Isn’t it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?” The women replied that this was so. He said, “This is the deficiency in her religion.”
Women are an affliction to men.
Mohammed said, “If at all there is a bad omen, it is in the horse, the woman and the house.”
On another occasion, he had said, “I have not left any affliction after me more harmful to men than women.”
Women cannot help their flaws, so be nice to them.
Mohammed said, “Treat women nicely, for a women is created from a rib, and is much like one. If you try to straighten a rib, it will break, so I urge you to take care of the women.”
A woman, a donkey or a dog can nullify prayers.
When told that a prayer is annulled if the praying ones are passed by a dog, a donkey, or a woman, Aisha said,
Do you make us women equal to dogs and donkeys? While I used to lie in my bed, the Prophet would sometimes come to pray facing the middle of the bed. I felt like it was wrong of me to remain in front of him while he prayed, so I would slip away slowly and quietly from the foot of the bed until I stopped feeling guilty.
Pg. 91
The text mentions the Janissaries in a favorable manner. This is tragic.
Fundamentally, the Janissaries were a blood tax paid by the systematic forced collection of Christian children in the Balkans, practiced by Ottoman Turks. Every three or four years 300 to 1000 healthy boys and young men had to be taken by force to Turkey, converted to Islam and educated for military profession or religious disciplines. Part of the brutality of subjugating the Christian youth to accept the discipline of Islam was homosexual rape.
These sons of Christian parents were used in jihad war against Christians to expand Islam.
The daughters of the Christians were captured and used as sex slaves, as well.
Pg 92
The Taj Mahal is presented as a wonder of Islam. The Taj was originally a Hindu temple that was commandeered and converted to a Islamic structure. All of the Hindu stoneworkers had their right hand removed so that they would not build any other structure as beautiful.
Pg. 96
Actually, most of the medicine practiced in Islam was by Christians and Jews. Some scholars complained that most Muslims wanted to become Sharia lawyers.
It neglects to mention that the Islamic philosophy of the Golden Age culminated in the following:
1. There are no natural laws
2. There is no cause and effect
3. Only those ideas which do not criticize Islamic doctrine are permitted under Islam. This is authoritative logic and thought which forbids critical thought.
This basically destroys science and inquiring thought. There has never been a Nobel Prize in science given to a Muslim working in a Muslim nation. There is no modern scientific idea that has come into prominence from Islam, even with vast sums of money available.
These constraints also explain why almost no books are translated into Arabic. They don’t agree with Islamic doctrine and do not need to be read by a Muslim.
Pg 101
Translating the Greek and Roman works was all done by Christian Arabs. Only selected works were translated, none of the literature was translated.
Pg 103
The rest of Mohammed’s farewell sermon included: From Ishaq’s Sira: He also told them men had rights over their wives and women had rights over their husbands. The wives were never to commit adultery or act in a sexual manner toward others. If they did, they were to be put in separate rooms and beaten lightly. If they refrained from what was forbidden, they had the right to food and clothing. Men were to lay injunctions on women lightly for they were prisoners of men and had no control over their persons.
He said to feed and clothe the slaves well.
Public Comment Form MyWorld History & Geography, Middle Ages to Exploration of Americas The book says the Arab Muslim Empire was “generally” tolerant of Jews and Christians and states they were respected? The only mention in this book of their persecution was a special tax and “other restrictions”.
This book shows an obvious bias for Islam. Any negatives are either not mentioned, down played or glossed over.
Other religions are not handled in the same manner. Much of the text regarding Christianity focuses on internal conflicts or other negative aspects. One gets the impression that the section on Islam is written by a Muslim but the sections on Christianity read from an outsider’s perspective. Very little information is presented on the conquest of Islam over of formerly Christian nations like Egypt, Syria and Turkey.
Regarding Pages 72-107 and beyond, the books discussion of Islam and Sharia is scrubbed clean of negative aspects. This book is quick to discuss several less than positive issues regarding the Christian church, such as internal conflicts or power struggles between the clergy and secular rulers. In fact one of the few sections dedicated to Christianity is entitled “Divisions within the Christian Church”.
Islam is given the status of a Civilization where no other religion is. In discussing Islam, no mention of slavery is made which was definitely a characteristic aspect of the Islamic empires and was practiced by Muslims since the beginning of Islam. Slavery is condoned in the Koran, Hadiths and the Sunna. Where Slavery is not addressed in the cultures of Islam, slavery is described as a strong influence of the Roman culture.
P.82 Regarding Charity, one of the 5 pillars of Islam, the book fails to mention that Islamic charity does not apply to non-muslim believers. Refer to the Koran 28:86 which forbids lending support to non-believers.
P. 85 The books discussion of Sharia does not mention the lack of equal rights for women, non-Muslims and homosexuals. There is no mention of countries where sharia forbids women to work, receive an education, drive a car or move about unescorted by a male relative. There is no mention of women who are stoned to death under sharia for adultery even when it is actually a case where the woman is raped. There is no mention that women inherit half of what their male peers inherit and that it takes 3 women’s testimony to equal one man’s in a Sharia court of law. There is no mention of the death sentence for all homosexuals or many other negative aspects of Sharia.
p. 86 The book states Islam spread peacefully even though they “conquered” North Africa and Spain. I suggest that the spread of Islam was anything but peaceful . This is from the Medieval Source Book on the conquest of Spain by the Muslim invaders. http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/source/conqspain.asp
p.87 According to the book, religious toleration helped the Arab Muslim empire to expand. Conversely it is compared to the Byzantine or Christian empire which is stated to have persecuted Jews and non-Muslims.
The fact is, Islamic states treated Jews and Christians as 3rd class citizens, requiring an onerous Jiza Tax from them and severely restricting their freedoms of religious worship and commerce. Jews and Christians were not allowed to repair their synagogues or churches or ring bells during worship. They were not allowed to ride horses. Their testimony was not allowed in a court of law. Often their children were taken from them and forced into military service. There were many other hardships imposed on non-Muslims in Muslim conquered lands.
P. 88 Discusses how women were treated differently than men but soft sells the inequities as still a “general improvement” over their situation before Islam developed. No mention of ill treatment of women mentioned above under P85.
Review by Barbara S.
What is disturbing is that the teacher reviews of this book find absolutely no bias at all in spite of the entire section devoted to the study of Islam in detail and with a positive view. Islam is continued to be discussed in many other sections as well. Its like a primer on Islam. It reads more like a book on religion in this section than a history book The chapter on Christianity is titled, "Divisions in the Christian Church" Or in the Medieval times Christianity is discussed as a power struggle between Bishops and the Pope with Kings and rulers. Much fewer details on the fundamentals of Christianity are given in this book than that of Islam. Christianity is discussed in a flawed and negative way. This book is clearly biased for Islam if for no other reason than the sheer volume of the text devoted to discussion of it. Yet teachers state a Christian bias in the weekly reader for K_3 Grades because of the discussion of good character qualities that make a good citizen? and a later lesson with one paragraph describing what the Christian church is?
The book says the Arab Muslim Empire was “generally” tolerant of Jews and Christians and states they were respected? The only mention in this book of their persecution was a special tax and “other restrictions”.
This book shows an obvious bias for Islam. Any negatives are either not mentioned, down played or glossed over.
Other religions are not handled in the same manner. Much of the text regarding Christianity focuses on internal conflicts or other negative aspects. One gets the impression that the section on Islam is written by a Muslim but the sections on Christianity read from an outsider’s perspective.

This is Freida for Truth Radio News inviting you to call WBCR if you have an
event you would like streamed LIVE over Truth Radio.tv and getting a DVD and
the event archived for free or paid for viewing call WBCR at 984-1470.

Unfortunately Governor Haslem has retreated from his historically bold leadership
position of calling for the State Legislature to address the funding crisis caused
by the Obama Administration failure to produce a Transportation Budget for
6 years, according to Tennessee Department of Transportation Commissioner

The Governor in announcing his position change, acknowledges the State
Legislators objections to dealing with the gas tax question in a election year is a very bad sign for the TAXPAYERS.

WBCR believes this State Legislator opposition to voter accountability
telegraphs lawmakers intention to pass a significant enough GAS TAX increase that would prevent their Leaders from getting re-elected and rightfully so.

The October Blount Co. Agenda Commission meeting was the shortest on record as soon as the role was taken Commissioner Carter of Dist. 1 elected by the voters from Martin Luther King Center and Everett motioned to adjourn the meeting but had to wait until Vice Chairman Samples Dist 3 from Eagleton and John Sevier got a vote of 10 to 5 both included as voting against setting the agenda.

Commissioner Carter then moved a second time to adjourn, and was seconded
by Commissioner Farmer of the 4th District precincts of Chilhowee
View, Fairview, Montvale and Board of Education. The motion passed unanimously.

Commissioner Samples told WBCR "It was not the county commission's business" referring to Resolution 2015-10-006 sponsored by Commissioner Miller of District 4, Chilhowee View, Fairview, Montvale and Board of Education.
Commissioner Miller said of Commissioner Sample's position that, " King George III himself could not have done a better job of sabotaging a lawful and righteous expression of outrage against tyranny.

Chairman Steve Samples' objection to the resolution's content is no justification for throwing the legislative process of a free people into the wood chipper as he and the county power elite did at Tuesday nights' farce of an agenda committee meeting."

The Mayor has called for a special called meeting without the Miller Resolution
says he is "getting the Commission business done" according to the Daily Times.

It appears to WBCR that the Mayor and all the Commissioner, legislators were
elected to represent the voters of Blount County. However the Mayor and
Commissioner Samples and the 9 other Commissioners who didn't want to consider the Miller Resolution Petitioning God's Mercy doesn't represent their constituents.

The only citizens getting represented at October's Agenda Committee Meeting
are those who don't want God's Mercy yet they seem to be in greatest need
of God's Mercy, how ironic.

The commissioners wanting God's Mercy for Blount County were Archer, Carver, Miller and Monroe,

Commissioners rejecting God's Mercy were Bowers, Carter, Caskey, Caylor,
Farmer, Headrick, Lewis, Melton,and Samples.

So if you don't get God's Mercy what remains but his Judgment.
You can read the full Resolution at www.truthradio.tv October Agenda
Mercy Resolution.
If you want God's Mercy to be requested for Blount County by Resolution then call the Mayor at 273-5700 and ask him to support Commissioner Miller's Resolution.

After calling the Mayor you might also contact the Daily Times since they are so
powerfully interested in this resolution and ask them if they would interview you
or your pastor,or favorite retired Christian educator, or college professor
on the importance of justice and mercy of the God of the Bible.

WBCR would be happy to receive copies of your communication with either the
Mayor or the Daily Times so as to publicly report on they response to your concerns.

If you would like to recommend a guest for WBCR's Local News Talk radio show
Monday thru Friday at 5:15pm Salt and Light Please call 984-1470 and if you would like to share your exchange with the Mayor or the Daily Times please do so in writing to WBCR PO box 130 Alcoa TN 37701 or by email to gm @ truthradio.tv.

RESOLUTION No. 15-10-006
Sponsored by Karen Miller and
Whereas, the Governor, Attorney General, and ALL WE Blount County Legislators have sworn
an oath consistent with the moral Law of God ("So Help Me God") to uphold the Constitution of
Tennessee and the Constitution of the United States; and
Whereas, the fulfillment of this oath, in the American tradition, may not be read to contradict the
written Constitution, Justice, Reason and higher Natural Law; and
Whereas, not all orders claiming authority under color of law are lawful; and
Whereas, unlawful orders, no matter their source - whether from a military commander, a
federal judge, or the United States Supreme Court - are and remain unlawful, and should be
resisted; and
Whereas, the American system of federalism envisions a political stance of resistance by
States and their office holders against lawless federal court orders; and
Whereas, modernly, federal judges have once again usurped powers not delegated to them,
and have violated Reason, the Rule of Law and Natural Law by purporting to strike down State
laws and acts of the People recognizing and protecting Natural Marriage; and
Whereas, the United States Supreme Court is not the sole and final arbiter of the powers of the
States under the Ninth and Tenth Amendments, when it acts in an area outside of its jurisdiction;
Whereas, the federal Judiciary was created by the Founders to have "neither Force nor Will, but
merely judgment; and must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm" and the
States, for the carrying out of its judgments, and it is high time that the Court be so reminded;
Whereas we are forced beyond our wishes to comply with what is clearly against our conscience,
and violates what the Bill of Rights, both State and Federal, give us the Right to do...
With a firm reliance upon the providence of Almighty God WE the BLOUNT COUNTY
LEGISLATURE call upon all of the Officers of the State of Tennessee, the Governor, the
Attorney General, and the members of the Tennessee Legislature, to join US, and utilize all
authority within their power to protect Natural Marriage, from lawless court opinions, AND THE
financial schemes of the enemies of righteousness wherever the source AND defend the Moral
Standards of Tennessee.
WE adopt this Resolution before God that He pass us by in His Coming Wrath and not
destroy our County as He did Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighboring cities. As the
Passover Lamb was a means of salvation to the ancient Children of Israel, so we stand upon
the safety of the Lamb of God to save us.
WE adopt this Resolution begging His favor in light of the fact that we have been forced to
comply and recognize that the State of Tennessee, like so many other God-fearing States, MAY
have fallen prey to a lawless judiciary in legalizing what God and the Bible expressly forbids.
