Colorado High school students read Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic

Madness. Your taxpayer dollars at work to advance Islamic culture: a culture, by its very nature, designed to destroy all others. They are at war with us. Would school students in 1944 have recited the Pledge in German?

Mark Steyn discussed this very thing when we were fighting an Arabic public school in Brooklyn here in New York City, in my interview with him.

"It shows how we mischaracterized, we willfully misunderstand Islam. Yes, on the face of it, yes, Arabic is a language. In a sense there would be no difference between opening a foreign language school -- a Spanish language school or a french language school -- but in fact Arabic is more than a language. It is explicated the language of Islam, so in that sense it is part of the Islamic religious imperial project. Radical Islam advances through the Arabic language. And you go all kinds of places that aren't in the Arab world now, like Pakistan, Indonesia, Central Asia, the Balkans, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Canada and the United States, and you will here those Imams preaching in Arabic. Arabic is not just another language like French or Italian, it is the spearhead of an ideological project that is deeply opposed to the United States.

FORT COLLINS - A Fort Collins principal stands by his decision to allow students from a multicultural group to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic on the school's intercom.

"We do say the Pledge of Allegiance on Mondays at Rocky Mountain High School," principal Tom Lopez said.

Students have always said it in English. This year, a group with about 30 students approached Lopez

Why not Japanese or German?

...was it the Pledge of Allegiance or the shahādah?

War with Islam.

Not a question of if...but of when.

Anyone thinking differently has the IQ of Al Gore and the Hillabeast.

Wouldn’t pledging allegiance to the flag and invoking the name of “allah” be seen as blasphemy and subject to a fatwa directed toward the school administrators?

Where is the local Imam on this?
Where is “Islam Rage Boy”?

Excellent point, has someone contacted CAIR, pronounced Kah-Ear...?

This really pisses me off. I have a good mind to issue a fatwah.

Learning the enemy’s language is not a bad idea; you can then understand what they really said instead of what some questionable Muslim translator wants you to THINK they said.

If you kill them all then you don’t have to worry about it.

One of the symptoms in the undoing of this country was when we passively sat and allowed immigrants (mainly illegal ones but I see it in legal ones too) to not assimilate at least on the level of our language and traditions.

I am not talking about having pride in your heritage or the right to practice your religion but flying other flags at will and printing forms in multiple languages and having machine where you need to press 1 is excrement in the least. There are people in this country that have been here for decades that still cannot speak English. Go try and live in another country without learning the language and see how far you get.

If it is a legitimate translation and not some sort of paraphrase, it violates Sharia law.

And yet there is nothing we can do about it. Parents complain. We write and call our state and national legislators and it just goes on and on and on and on......

You’re right. Heretofore, I thought Fort Collins was a conservative town.

I’d raise He// and pull my child from that school.

That principal needs to be canned.

In an America that made sense, Americans would just FUNDAMENTALLY oppose this and be disgusted, outraged, and get people fired as a result. But we have been so neutered and cowed that nothing ever is done about trolls like this that can’t see (or do, and ignore it anyway, because they have an obvious agenda)that this kind of thing is not unifying, and only further balkanizes us. Strips us of our national identity.

Bingo. I have an unedited version of the Koran that I got in Saudi. It is the one they don’t translate to the unsuspecting public.

My version has Arabic in the body and the English translation is on the margin.
