Aggressive ISLAM approach to British Schools
All three of the UK’s major Parties have expressed alarm at a letter circulating among 25 of Birmingham’s schools: "We have an obligation to our children to fulfil our roles and ensure these schools are run on Islamic principles. We are on our way to getting rid of even more head teachers and taking over their schools."
The letter continued: "You must remember this is a 'jihad', and as such, all means possible to win the war is acceptable."
Birmingham has a large Islamic population, 22 percent of the city's residents identified themselves as “Islamic” in the 2011 census.
AFP reported, “Since the letter emerged, whistleblowers including former staff have come forward making claims that boys and girls have been separated in classrooms and assemblies.
"Sex education has been banned and non-Muslim staff are being vilified”.
Al-Queda operative and firebrand cleric, Anwar al-Awlaki (pictured) was killed by a US drone strike in Yemen in 2011. His teachings are now highly praised in school assemblies.
Concerns about how some 430 schools in Birmingham were being run first emerged last year in a leaked anonymous letter which outlined how to implement what it called “Operation Trojan Horse”.
The schools are State-funded but self-governing and independent of local control.
"We have no idea who is running these schools”, an observer said.
The Birmingham Council is due to publish its findings on the matter by mid-June.
Education Secretary Michael Gove has sent inspectors to a further 15 Birmingham schools in recent weeks.
Prime Minister David Cameron spoke about the issue on a visit to Birmingham earlier this month, saying: "We will not accept any school being run by extremists or promoting extremist views."
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said Monday that schools should not be allowed to become "silos of segregation".
He continued, "...I am very concerned whenever I hear allegations that schools, funded by the taxpayer, have become vehicles for the propagation of particular ideologies which divide young children and pupils from other people", he said.
It is indeed ominous that neither Clegg nor Cameron uttered the words, “Muslim” or “Islam” when announcing their concerns.
We in Australia are also forbidden from identifying the source of a clear and present danger by “virtue” of our Section 18C.
It appears we must wait until an obvious threat from within (and supported from without) becomes incurable cancer.
Vigilante groups like the Australian Defence League are already mushrooming in Australia while the Government continues to sit on its hands.
Perhaps Canberra doesn’t have a 22 percent Muslim population... well, not yet.
