CIA Director vs. Tampa School Board
Intelligence vs. Arrogance…regarding CAIR and your Child’s Education
By Randy McDaniels
On Friday, the controversial Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) made headlines in Oklahoma and Tampawith quite contrasting perspectives in regard to the danger CAIR poses.
Former CIA Director James Woolsey, spoke to the High Noon Clubin Oklahoma addressing CAIR in relation to their threat to national security and the fact CAIR is working to undermine the United States, while in stark contrast the Tampa School Board held a “workshop” only after considerable pressure from a rapidly growing contingent of concerned parents and civic groups regarding guest speakers from CAIR in numerous public school classes over the past several years.
The Controversy erupted when emails between history teacher Kelly Miliziano and CAIR’s Hassan Shibly, as well asCAIR’s Facebook page posts which stated CAIR had been speaking regularly in the public school system surfaced in December 2011.
Director Woolsey, arguably one of the nation’s leading intelligence experts during an interview with Channel 9 news on Friday said “the group [CAIR] is an extremist Muslim group with ties to terrorists.” He also said “It [CAIR] was clearly in the business of helping send funds to a terrible, totalitarian terrorist organization: Hamas.”
Hassan Shibly, Exec. Dir of CAIR Tampa has significant controversy surrounding him as well. He was kicked out of the university of Buffalo’s Student Body for his bias, has praised Hezbollah, and his family has close ties to President Assad, as well as the now deceased Grand Mufti Kuftaro of Syria who stood by Assad when he was committing atrocities and torture against his own peoples.
CAIR leaders have stated they want Sharia to be the LAW of the LAND in America and Education was vehicle through which they would accomplish that mission.
Hassan Shibly supports Sharia Law, recently lobbying Tallahassee and misinforming the community about the nature of SB 1360, which did not make it to the floor for the final vote after passing overwhelmingly in the house and passing both Senate Subcommittees.
With the exception of School Board Member Dr. Stacy White, the School Board continues to express disdain and arrogance at having to deal with this issue.
“I resent having this conversation in the first place,” School Board member April Griffin said. “I don’t want to craft a policy based on bullying, based on people coming forward demanding we do something because they don’t like the way we do things.”
In contrast, The FBI has had a policy which formally severed all ties to CAIR since 2009 and President Obama signed a “Bill” in November, 2011 affirming the FBI Policy…formally making the policy of cutting ties to CAIR and other unindicted co-conspirators in regard to terrorism a matter of LAW.
However, The Tampa School Board is defiantly unwilling to craft a policy to protect our children and formally cut ties to CAIR, a Federally Designated HAMAS entity and a Co-Conspirator in the largest successfully prosecuted terrorism Funding Case in U.S. History. The U.S. vs. HLF trial of 2008 resulted in CAIR members being sentence up to 65 years in federal prison and all defendants being found guilty.
The additional 246 individuals and organizations were to be subsequently tried in future prosecutions to include one scheduled for April, 2010 listing defendant Omar Ahmad, Co-founder of CAIR, however Attorney General Eric Holder quashed this and future proceedings despite a mountain of evidence and guilty verdicts on all 108 counts.
The FBI was able to draft a policy barring dealings with groups like CAIR, which was the basis for subsequent U.S. Law banning dealings with CAIR, and other Co-conspirators… then one, would surely think that those enlightened individuals tasked with educating the future generation of American leaders would be capable of doing likewise.
Terry Kemple, the local leader of the Education Coalition submitted a policy draft to Tom Gonzalez, Attorney for the School Board. This draft in regard to co-conspirators is similar to the law President Obama signed in November and reads as follows:
“In determining whether a speaker has the appropriate experience and/or credentials necessary to promote a scholarly discussion of the topic being considered, the following may be considered:
1) Academic or professional credentials of the potential speaker;
2) Whether the potential speaker has been convicted of, indicted for, or listed in an indictment as an unindicted co-conspirator involved in, the commission of a felony under the laws of the United States, or a State thereof;
3) Whether the potential speaker represents, is an officer or employee of, is paid by, or is publicly associated with any organization;
A. Whether such organization is primarily an advocacy, as opposed to an educational, organization;
B. Whether the organization has a 501(c)(3) designation from the IRS;
C. Whether the organization has been convicted of, indicted for, or listed in an indictment as an unindicted co-conspirator involved in, the commission of a felony under the laws of the United States, or a State thereof;
D. Whether any current or past officer of the organization has been convicted of, indicted for, or listed in an indictment as an unindicted co-conspirator involved in, the commission of a felony under the laws of the United States, or a State thereof.
Candy Olson and the majority of the Tampa School Board members staunchly defend the ability of the principals and teachers to be able to vet Islamic speakers, yet they have not even been able to detect or vet textbooks which they have used for years regarding Islamic Indoctrination and have allowed a HAMAS entity to influence our children for at least three years.
In a two year study a report recently released by ACT! for America; of the leading textbooks used in History and Social Studies Classes across America, all (38) textbooks have disparaging biases, omission, and counter factual narratives regarding Islam.
A summary of this report was sent via Certified Mail to over 70,000 Superintendents and School Board Members in the country earlier this month.
Some textbooks taught that Jesus was a Palestinian, that Muslims discovered America, and in one Florida approved English textbooknot in the report, Professor Ihsan Bagby, misleads students and promotes the CAIR narrative of Muslim victimhood despite FBI hate crime statistics which crush this false claim.
Bagby, a National Board member of CAIR is on record for stating “Ultimately we [Muslims] can never be full citizen of this country…. Because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country.”(Political Activities of Muslims in America, Oxford university Press, 1991)
The fact is, many educators are barely familiar with the term Sharia Law or Islamic doctrine and do not possess any real knowledge in this regard…. Therefore how can these well meaning educators safeguard our children from something they do not understand?
“Schools are fertile grounds where the seeds of ISLAM can be sowed inside the hearts of Non-Muslim students.”www.dawanet.com
“I am waging a “bloodless” revolution, promoting world cultures and faiths in America’s classrooms”. (Shabbir Mansouri Council on Islamic Education which provides virtually all Islamic Content in Public School Textbooks).
CAIR’s National Spokesman said “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future. But I’m not going to do anything violent to promote that. I’m going to do it through education.” (Statement by CAIR Ibrahim Hooper, Minneapolis Star Tribune, April 4, 1993)
CIA Director James Woolsey, during his interview in regard to CAIR, told Channel 9 News in Oklahoma “Sometimes people are friendly and they’re nice people. Sometimes people are friendly and they’re masking something else they’re doing.”
What do you think….. Does CAIR likely have an ulterior agenda?
