Thanks to everyone who signed and supported this petition. With your help and the combined efforts of other organizations, San Diego Unified has rescinded the policy to implement a supplemental Islamic curriculum.
On April 4th, 2017 the San Diego Unified School District passed a plan to implement the teaching of Islamic materials created by CAIR (Council for American-Islamic Relations).
SDUSD has stated that it implemented this policy to limit bullying incidents against Muslim students. The policy was adopted due to a study that was provided to the school board that many sources say is questionable due to the fact that the study didn't cite what religion the students were or if those incidents occurred in SDUSD schools.
Parents are tired of every liberal cause to be guised under an anti-bullying campaign. Students who are bullying others should be dealt with accordingly but policies should not be made favoring one religion over another. Charles Lamandri - an attorney well known for defending the Mt. Soledad cross - said, "anti-bullying policies should protect all students regardless of ethnicity and affiliation..."
Here are the facts:
-Many reports across the country indicate that Islamic indoctrination in public schools is on the rise. Students aren't just learning the basics about Islam but are forced to write "Allah is the only God" and recite the Islamic conversion creed. (American Center for Law & Justice)
-The curriculum is created by CAIR who's mission is "to change American society and advance radical Islam." (San Diego Union Tribune) "CAIR has been declared a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates, and was named by federal prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror-funding operation." (Breitbart.com) According to Steve Emerson, an expert in terrorism, CAIR is a radical fundamentalist front group for Hamas. (Americanthinker.com)
-CAIR claims to be putting together this curriculum "to promote a more positive image of Islam" while glossing over how many Muslims advocate "a worldwide caliphate, discrimination against non-Muslims, and capital punishment for apostates, adulterers and those who insult Mohammed" as well as "polygamy, a husband's legal right to beat his wife, genital mutilation...and honor killings." (San Diego Union Tribune) (Worldnetdaily.com)
We are asking the San Diego Union School Board members to immediately reverse this policy. We recommend the board implement measures that will provide a safe environment and protect the religious liberty of ALL students.
