Reader comment on item: Spreading Islam in American Public Schools

Submitted by Donna M. (United States), Mar 1, 2005 at 21:57

According to a recent sermon spoken from Pastor John Hagee in San Antonio Texas, it is commonplace now for professorships and chairs to be bought by the Saudi government at all universities and colleges across our country. When a college president or chancellor is realizing that their budget is getting tighter, along comes a wealthy Saudi who will plunk down what is to him just pocket change, and for a couple of million dollars, will buy a chair, professor, and begin a middle eastern studies department.

It is no stretch of the imagination where this is going or what its intent is. We have supported Israel politically, and have loudly stated that we are a "Christian" nation, one that was built on Judeo-Christian values.

Here is a prime example of the tearing down of these values, and in their place, a softening toward those who would bomb our buildings, murder and behead our citizens, and continue to murder, terrorize, and bomb our soldiers on foriegn soil. If anyone would dare to criticize these movements toward the Islamazation of our youth, they are villified in the liberal press as intolerant and racist.

I doubt the Daniel Pearls of the world could give a rat's patoot about the ACLU's stance on why a nativity scene or Christmas carols can not be sung in a public school, but I do bet they would welcome any and all prayer to make this madness stop.
