Yes the principal was an Islamist, yes Almontaser had not the qualifications or background to be a NYC public school principal but Almontaser is symptomatic of the problem. She is not the problem. An islamic public shcool is the problem. An inaccurative Arab narrative is the problem. Indoctrinating young American minds with propaganda is the problem. The problem is a NY public school madrassa. Want a window into the curriculum which the DOE refuses to share with the public and parents (even though it is scheduled to open in just 16 days - what's to hide?) Listen to my show last week with Pamela Hall of the Stop the Madrassa coalition here and go to STOP THE MADRASSA here;
16 Days until KGIA opens. Time to get into that back-to-school spirit, so we’ll be posting new KGIA “Likely Lesons” . Today’s history lesson, from KGIA Board of advisors member Imām Al-Hājj Tālib ‘Abdur-Rashīd: Muslims discovered America!
You can also view this webpage as a pdf (Imām Al-Hājj Tālib ‘Abdur-Rashīd History Lesson), and also screenshots saved as a pdf file on August 18, 2007 (Imām Al-Hājj Tālib ‘Abdur-Rashīd History Lesson Screenshots). Excerpts below…the emphasis is ours.
[Below are excerpts - the original article is long, but we urge you to read it in entirety.]
“The misguided activist obviously thinks more of his own unlearned opinion than he does of the oral traditions, scholarly writings, and academic research of experts ranging from centuries ago in the ancient world, to the present. The truth is that there is such a constantly growing, extensive body of cultural, archaeological, anthropological, and linguistic evidence of Western and Northern African Muslim pre-Columbian American (and Caribbean) presence, that those who study the evidence and continue to deny the obvious, reveal themselves to be rooted in old, racist, European renditions of American history.
It is one thing to read about towering figures in the ancient Muslim world like Al-Idrisi, Al-Biruni, Al-Mas’udi and many, many others whose contributions laid the foundations of the modern sciences of history, geography, cartography, and sea navigation. It is another to actually study their work. Both Idrisi and Mas’udi wrote of Muslim African trans-Atlantic excursions to the Western world. Al-Idrisi did so around 956 C.E. Al-Mas’udi wrote in the 12th century. These accounts were written centuries before Columbus’ voyages!”
“These references and more all point to what the non-expert activist dismissed as “wish-fulfillment”. On the contrary, ancient Arabic language maps, Native American tribes with African names and words clearly embedded in their languages, statues, diaries, artifacts, etc. destroy European imperialistic notions of history rooted in White Supremacy. One such notion is that African peoples’ history in America begins with slavery. ..These works compliment references in the writings of Christopher Columbus, Balboa, and other European explorers, to those very same Muslim African explorers (specifically The Mandinka -the people of Kunta Kinte, ancestor of Alex Haley, author of Roots, and The Autobiography of Malcolm X) who were already present in the Carribean and North America, before the bearers of the Cross arrived (e.g. Narrative of the Third Voyage, The Voyages of Christopher Columbus, Lionel Cecil Jane).
