How is it that people like Dhabah Almontaser get into positions of authority in this country? It is simply mind-boggling!

But Dhabah and her sympathizers are in their positions for a reason. Islamists, whose long-term goal is the establishment of Islamic rule in the West and beyond, fully support Dhabah, and are working hard to train-up more people just like her.

It's been spelled out by numerous scholars alarmed by Islamism, but the Islamist path to power goes something like this: (1) encourage mass migration into western countries and then encourage their refusal to assimulate into the populations and cultures; (2) manipulate their legal systems and hold them hostage to their very own constitutions and laws, which guarantee Islamists freedoms they intend to eliminate once in power; (3) reach the hearts and minds of their young people with the cooperation of their political left (i.e. the education system) and the demonization of their political right; (4) provide massive funding to Islamist front groups; (5) suppress the voice of Muslims who disagree with the Islamist perspective; and (6) fund those Islamists who have chosen to fight the West with arms.

It's easy to see where Dhabah Almontaser and her supporter Manaw fit into this model. What's difficult to see is how we take back American education and stop the Islamist assault against the West. A good start would be to stop teaching the garbage that got Dhabah her job in the first place: conflict resolution, cultural and religious diversity, Islamic Arab culture at public schools...She co-designed and developed a Re-Embracing Diversity in NYC Public Schools: Educational Outreach for Muslim Sensitivity curriculum??? This is crazy! Yet, by now everyone knows of the leftists teaching at Columbia.

Only the voters change the tide. The voters of France have acted, hopefully not too late. I'm not sure how long before the American voters respond in kind. A recent Gallup Poll listed the war in Iraq, terrorism and homeland security, and immigration among the Top Five things Americans believe the government must be concerned about. Who knows what direction, however, the government will go - left or right?
