Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was president of the American Muslim
Council and a supporter of Hamas and Hezbollah, worked with President
Clinton and the American Civil Liberties Union when the guidelines,
launched by Clinton in 1995, were being developed, according to
Those are the same guidelines that the ACLU's Nadine Strossen
referred to for authority when supporting organization lawsuits to
restrict Christmas celebrations and the removal of the Nativity from
public display, the reports said.
When Clinton issued the guidelines, he announced that they had been
developed by "35 religious groups" but didn't disclose that many of
those were civil rights organizations such as the ACLU, and committed
whole-heartedly to the separation of church and state.
ended up serving time in jail, also founded the American Muslim
Foundation and the American Muslim Armed Forces and Veterans Affairs
He ran afoul of the law because the U.S. banned such money
transfers under economic sanctions imposed in 1986 when Libya was tied
to terrorist bombings in Vienna and Rome.
The U.S. attorney's office told WND at that time Alamoudi was
accused under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act.
It was an affidavit filed with the complaint in which his support
of the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas was described. There,
he also said, "If we are outside (the U.S.) we can say 'Oh, Allah
destroy America,' but once we are here, our mission in this country is
to change it." He also allegedly had connections to relatives of bin
Laden, reports said.
For a time he also was employed in choosing Muslim chaplains for
the U.S. military and in his role as leader of the American Muslim
Council, he frequently met with senior Clinton and Bush administration
The Muslim leader said "he intended eventually to deposit the
($340,000) in banks located in Saudi Arabia, from where he would feed
it back in smaller sums into accounts in the United States," according
to the affidavit.
Before his close encounter with the law, however, he was described
as a friend of Hillary Clinton and an adviser on Islamic affairs. It
was during this time, as he helped with the presidential guidelines
for schools, that Muslim beliefs started appearing in Houghton Mifflin
textbooks, which are being used in some of the Islamic indoctrination
The guidelines note that, "Students generally do not have a federal
right to be excused from lessons that may be inconsistent with their
religious beliefs or practices."
But under those guidelines, California, and now Oregon students,
are allowed to be told as part of their public schooling: "You are
beginning a simulation of the history and culture of Islam. It is
important to study the origins of this religion and how it has
affected mankind. … It is impossible to study Islam without
understanding the relationship between the teaching of Prophet
Muhammad and the entire Mid-Eastern culture. It was the early Muslims,
primarily the Arabs, who shaped the future of a wide area of Europe,
Africa, and Asia. Muslim contributions are extraordinary in art,
architecture, philosophy, science, mathematics, government, and of
"From the beginning, you and your classmates will become Muslims.
You will be a member of a caravan starting from a trading center based
around an Islamic city. The task of each caravan group is to be the
first group to complete a pilgrimage to Mecca, the holiest of Islamic
cities, with the most amount of dirhems (Arabic money). This
pilgrimage or 'haij' is a requirement of all faithful Muslims once in
Those words are taken from text material provided to students in
California, a district that was challenged by Christian parents, who
just weeks ago saw the U.S. Supreme Court decline to intervene in the
lower court's ruling.
"Today, Christmas and Nativity scenes are outlawed while Clinton's
nominee, U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton, recently approved
'Islam: A Simulation' where children learn to become Muslim, recite
the Quran, fast for Ramadan and pray to Allah including this prayer:
'In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful. Praise be to
Allah, Lord of Creation, The Compassionate, the Merciful, King of
Judgment-day! You alone we worship, and to You alone we pray for help,
Guide us to the straight path,'" wrote Jen Shroder, on her
"The double-standard is shocking, but one need only look at our
public school guidelines and who wrote them, with clauses designed to
open or close doors at the will of the ACLU, to discover how our
nation finds itself in such a dreadful state today," Shroder
Schroder, on the
NewsWithViews.com website, said Clinton "preferred to 'negotiate'
with Muslim leaders rather than answer terrorist bombings with our
"He colluded with the ACLU to present religious guidelines worded
to manipulate court rulings at the ACLU's discretion, successfully
censoring Christians and the Bible in public school while promoting
every other faith, specifically Islam.
"Clinton disguised these guidelines with much profession of his
Christian faith, but sincerity is lost when one examines the fruit,"
she wrote. "Lying under oath, dubious activities with staff, slipping
in an ACLU document as written by 'religious groups' is compounded
when one remembers how Hillary demanded public funding for (brace
yourself) a dung covered depiction of the Virgin Mary, with breasts of
elephant dung, surrounded by genital pornography at the Brooklyn
"America does not comprehend Muslim resolve to make America Islam,"
Shroder wrote. "Suicide bombers have already demonstrated their
willingness to kill and die for it. … Clinton gave them … our schools,
our very children with his religious guidelines."
Following the guidelines, the judge ruled that the Muslim teaching
could continue in the Byron Union School District in California,
deciding that it was just cultural education.
But Edward White III, of the
Thomas More Law Center which handled the California lawsuit,
asked, "Would it have been 'just cultural education' if students were
in simulated baptisms, wearing a crucifix, having taken the name of
St. John and with praise banners saying 'Praise be to Jesus Christ' on
His comments followed the newest protest from in Nyssa, Ore., where
one parent raised objections to the Islamic teachings. The district
there, according to Supt. Don
Grotting, is teaching a chapter in a history textbook "Journey
Across Time" that talks about "how civilization has developed and some
of the particular aspects of Islam."
He said one assignment was to learn the "five pillars" of Islam,
study Ramadan and listen to guest speakers including an American
Muslim who arrived dressed in her religious costume to talk to the
kids about her Quran.
Parent Kendalee Garner, however, objected to having her son being
"I just don't understand the ban on Christianity but Islam has free
rein," she told WND.
Grotting acknowledged to WND that textbooks do "take a slant" on
some issues, because publishers "are wanting to sell a textbook that
is meeting the needs of the state and federal mandates."
And in the California case, school officials also blamed the
"possible cant" of the textbook.
A review online of information from the text shows that it teaches
Christianity spread because "it gave meaning to peoples' lives,
appealed to their emotions and promised happiness after death."
Its description also focuses on Christians' conflicts with Rome
(when they were fed to lions), and splits between Christians following
Roman teachings and those following the teachings of Constantine.
However, the article praises how the Muslims founded the system for
banking, created important centers for learning, government and the
arts, how they ran "government, society and business" and made
valuable contributions in math, science and the arts.
The text also credits Muslims with inventing algebra and chemistry
as well as creating beautiful buildings, citing the Taj Mahal,
although the text does not mention that that is a tomb.
There's also no mention of the Quranic instruction that Muslims
must behead infidels, or nonbelievers.
One blogger said Christians should think strategically on such
"Cases like this present Christians with a golden opportunity to
introduce elements of religious teaching back into the state
curriculum by using the left's double standard towards Islam against
one commentator. "Now that this case is on the books in the Ninth
Circuit as precedent, expect Christian immersion classes to follow."
