Islamic Indoctrination Program in San Diego Schools Charged as Unconstitutional
In May 2017, the San Diego Unified School District established a wide-reaching program to counter what it called pervasive anti-islamic bullying in the region. A parents’ group is suing to get it reversed.
In April, the school board of the San Diego Unified School District said that bullying of Muslim students in its schools was serious and very much underreported.
As Kevin Beiser, the school board’s vice-president, said in an interview at the time, “Muslim students are constantly being harassed, spit on, verbally abused, pushed, shoved, their hijabs are being pulled.” He said it was a “serious problem probably in every public school in the country.”
During the April review, the school board made a recommendation on how to deal with the situation. Rather than address it as part of an overall antibullying issue, the school board instead focused only on the Muslim students. What it recommended was an extensive Islamic indoctrination plan for the schools, placement of library materials tied specifically to this, and the distribution of special resources for the teachers in the region. The plan, created with help from the Council on American-islamic Relations (CAIR), was approved 4-0 in a quick review where no one in the audience said anything for or against the proposal.
What no one in the audience was made aware of is that CAIR has been linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and that documents seized by the FBI prove that the Muslim Brotherhood is indeed engaged in a well-funded long-term conspiracy to spread Islam throughout the United States and ultimately make it a Muslim nation. Nor were they informed that claims of school bullying against Muslim students is precisely the mechanism being used to introduce Islamic indoctrination into American schools under the flag of multiculturalism and social justice.
Shortly after the plan was approved, the group Citizens for Quality Education San Diego sued the school district for the forced Islamization program. The grounds were that the proposal unconstitutionally gave a preference to Islamic students in the antibullying response over many other groups that may also be subject to bullying.
In its latest legal jab at the school district, filed on February 20, 2018, Citizens for Quality Education called CAIR, the developer of the anti-islamic bullying response, a “notorious sectarian organization.”
The basis for what Beiser and the school board passed back in April 2017 was apparently a 2017 CAIR report that said there was significant evidence of increased bullying of Muslim students in California, including having their hijabs forcibly removed by harassers. That
