Clocks, Carson, Schools and Islamophobia

By Donna Hearne


The Jersey City Board of Education recently voted not to close schools for the Muslim holiday of Eld al-Adha. It has been reported that a Muslim woman in attendance made a veiled threat saying: “We’re going to be the majority soon.”

Several weeks ago, Ahmed Mohamed, a 14-year-old from Irving, Texas brought what looked like a crude explosive devise in a pencil box to school saying it was a clock. The devise seems to be a disassembled 1986 digital alarm clock sold by Radio Shack, catalog number 63 756. Police questioned him and reported that he was “passive aggressive” during questioning, and refused to offer “reasonable” answers about his intent. Police spokesman James McLellan said, “We attempted to question the juvenile about what it was and he would simply only say it was a clock…He didn’t offer any explanation as to what it was for, why he created this device, why he brought it to school.” Later it was revealed that his father is a devoted Muslim, having debated Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch in 2011. Experts have now refuted the teen’s story of building the clock.

On Monday, Sept 21, Presidential candidate Ben Carson told Sean Hannity that “We don’t put people at the head of our country whose faith might interfere with them carrying out the duties of the Constitution,” … “If you’re a Christian and you’re running for president and you want to make this [country] into a theocracy, I’m not going to support you. I’m not going to advocate you being the president.” A firestorm erupted painting Dr. Carson as an Islamophobe.


Why did some people react in the above three situations the way they did? Did the school board, the Irving police and Dr. Carson understand American’s founding principles as spelled out in the Declaration of Independence that there are certain truths that come from the Judeo-Christian God such as life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and that government is to secure these rights? Did they understand some of the basic tenants of Sharia law: Sharia trumps the Constitution? Sharia law condones female genital mutilation, honor killing, amputation, crucifixion, beheadings [all anti-life] and NO opposition voices or freedom of speech? Did they know that 51% of U.S. Muslims want Sharia law and of that 25% are okay with violence against Americans?

On the other hand, others railed against Dr. Carson, sent thousands of dollars flooding into the coffers of the 14 year old and proposed a visit to the White House, while the NY City schools boards voted to close schools for Muslim holidays.

The first group had courage; the second group becomes troubling and dangerous.

Americans are increasingly becoming naive and ignorant about the stated goal of historic 1,400-year-old Islam – conquer the world. A close reading of the Quran, Hadith and other Muslim writings document a militant, world conquer strategy that uses lies (alTaqiyya: deception; the islamic word for concealing or disguising one’s beliefs, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies) and civilization jihad to subjugate a country and turn it into a totalitarian slave camp.

Why have so many Americans bought into this “peaceful Islam” story line? In part, the textbooks of the last thirty years have given a slanted, one-sided view of Islam. It is only getting worse as today the curriculums in schools actually teach children how to become Muslims while ignoring America’s Judeo-Christian foundations and heritage.

For Americans to stay free, they need to dig into what is being taught the next generation in the schools, especially through Common Core, understand their own heritage and become engaged in the public policy process. They MUST educate themselves on the dangerous of civilization jihad as the mainstream press and entertainment media have self censored themselves on these freedom-threatening stories.

Uninformed and ignorant citizens become slaves of the state.
