    Indiana Democratic Rep. Andre Carson claimed in late May that America’s schools should be modeled after Islamic madrassas in video that recently surfaced.

    “America will never tap into educational innovation and ingenuity without looking at the model that we have in our madrassas, in our schools, where innovation is encouraged, where the foundation is the Quran,” Carson said in the speech. “And that model that we are pushing in some of our schools meets the multiple needs of students.”

    Carson’s comments were made during a May 26 speech in Hartford, Conn. at the 37th Annual Islamic Circle of North America-Muslim American Society Convention.

    Madrassas are Islamic schools. Some claim that madrassas have a tendency to promote sexist, anti-Semitic teachings.

    The Indiana Democrat is one of two Muslim congressmen in the United States. He made headlines last summer for claiming that the Tea Party wanted to see blacks “hanging on a tree.”

    Carson’s office did not immediately respond to request for comment.

    God, have mercy on us for our stupidity.

    And bless and protect those that are standing in the gap and sounding the alarm.

    There was a time, long ago, when we were still The United States of America
    when our president would have ordered the B29's, B36's and later the B52's, in the air and stopped this cold. Threaten us, YOU LOSE. Now he sends Hillary and we lose.

    Public schools should be secular.

    On another note,
    Read America's Secret Establishment by Antony C. Sutton. Specifically the chapter How The Order Controls Education.

    Gee, and all this time I thought we had already achieved this ! In Muslim schools students are beaten if they don't comply or question their "lessons" . Don't we do the same, (sans the corporal effects -our "educators" substitute psychological abuse ) with our "zero tolerance policy" ? I.e. "cock your thumb" and get suspended. Point a chicken finger and get the same. Hug a classmate and get suspended for being a "sexual predator". And the list goes on........ >MW

    How can we allow our elected officials to be so blind? Radical Islam is still Islam. Its bad enough that we have a president who would turn us into a socialist nation let alone a Congressman who would turn the clock back 19 centuries.
