Tax Payer-Funded Muslim School in Minnesota

I just found this story about a charter school in Minnesota that is supposedly not a “Muslim” school.  The school is called Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy (TIZA), a K-8 charter school in Inver Grove Heights.

Here are the characteristics of the school:

  • The school shares the headquarters building of the Muslim American Society of Minnesota, whose mission is “establishing Islam in Minnesota.”
  • The school building houses a Mosque.
  • The school’s executive director, Asad Zaman, is a Muslim imam, or religious leader, and its sponsor is an organization called Islamic Relief.
  • The students are gathered, willing or not, to pray daily.
  • The cafeteria serves halal food – permissible under Islamic law.
  • “Islamic Studies” is offered at the end of the school day….like most schools would offer other after-school programs.

Of course, school officials declare it is a not a “religious” school!  Now, just imagine if this school had a cross, a bible and a worship hall with pews….it would be forced to close faster than you can say “Amen”!

A substitute teacher, Amanda Getz, has come forward stating what she saw with her own eyes at the school:

  • She arrived on Friday, a Muslim holy day, and was told there would be a “school assembly” that day.  Before that assembly, she was informed that her duties would include taking her fifth-grade students to the bathroom, four at a time, to perform “their ritual washing.”
  • The substitute teacher led the kids into the gym, where a man dressed in white with a white cap, who had been at the school all day,” was preparing to lead prayer. Beside him, another man “was prostrating himself in prayer on a carpet as the students entered.”
  • “The prayer I saw was not voluntary,” Getz said. “The kids were corralled by adults and required to go to the assembly where prayer occurred.”

Here is one of the more troubling parts of the story:

TIZA is now being held up as a national model for a new kind of charter school. If it passes legal muster, Minnesota taxpayers may soon find themselves footing the bill for a separate system of education for Muslims.

What comes to mind for me is something I learned about Islam.  It is called Takiyah or Taqqiyah.

From Blog Diacrino:

The word “al-Taqiyya” literally means: “Concealing or disguising one’s beliefs, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies at a time of eminent danger, whether now or later in time, to save oneself from physical and/or mental injury.” A one-word translation would be “Dissimulation.” But it may be clearer to call it lying. Taqiyyah is uttering with the tongue what one does not believe in the heart.

From Bible Probe blog:

We can’t be mulled by Muslims who claim they are “moderate” or “secular”.  These too are under Satan’s spell known as Islam.  Often these people are just practicing the well known Muslim tactic known as “Takiyah”.  Takiyah teaches Muslims to do whatever is necessary to achieve victory over the “enemy” or “infidels”.  In short, they can lie, promise peace, and even act like an infidel.  But when their opponents guard is down they are to crush them.

This school issue is one great example where we all better start reading up on Islam and the true intentions of the religion and the terrorist leaders.   The strategy seems to be to infiltrate in small, but effective ways until there is a foothold.

Be aware!

  2. This is an outrage! Our children (90% Christian) cannot pray in school– but they can if they’re Moslem? We learned all we need to know about Islam on 9/11.

  3. Look whats coming!

    You need to consider that inaction breeds destruction.

    Call your elected officials and demand they do something about this! The school officials of course will sue, but they will sue at some point, anyway. If you tell them they will get nationwide coverage, they will back down, they work in secret.
