School Forces Students To Practice Islam, Students' Mothers Not Having It

A couple of moms in New Jersey were concerned by their children’s' middle school curriculum. Particularly, they were worried about the section on Islam, which went as far as to tell students to go to a mosque to participate in prayers. The schools dismissed them, and people on social media slammed them for voicing their concerns.

Libby Hilsenrath and Nancy Gayer appeared on Fox News show 'Tucker Carlson Tonight' and told the host that they felt that the curriculum went overboard. In the Islamic studies section, the kids are taught not just basic details about the religion, but that there 'is no God but Allah' and that 'Mohammed is his messenger'. The students were even encouraged to go to a mosque with a Muslim friend to participate in prayer.

I think it crosses the line, [teaching] one religion and not others," Hilsenrath said.

She says the same schools would be afraid to teach about Christianity in a comparative way, such as by saying, “[Jesus is] the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

Not to mention, if public school curriculums in New Jersey encouraged students to go to church and pray with a Christian friend, there would be a massive backlash.

"I'm all in favor of teaching religion, if it's all done in the same manner with the same depth," Gayer added.

The two moms went to meet with the superintendent, but he only said that maybe he would have the Curriculum Committee look into the matter. When they asked for another meeting to discuss the issue in more detail, he responded in an email that it 'wouldn't be productive'.

The moms are trying to find out who is picking the curriculum, and who decides what gets included.

Carlson said to the women 'I bet you lunch' interest groups are involved.

In other states, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) was behind certain curriculum materials that ruffled the feathers of other public school parents. In these cases, parents also felt the materials went too far in teaching the practice of the faith. CAIR has been accused of supporting extremist Islamic groups.
