UK's Prep Schools For Dhimmis Not Completely Successful

A part of Labour's multicultural program in response to the ever greater radicalization of UK's Muslim population is to pretend that no real problem exists beyond an insufficient spirit of tolerance and understanding of Islam amongst the British natives. Thus a few months ago, Jacqui Smith, Labour's Home Secretary, announced that the Labour government would spend millions of pounds towards this end - teaching a whitewashed version of Islam to the UK's schoolchildren. It seems, however, that at least some of the students have far more sense then their teachers, the Anglican Archbishop, the Lord High Justice, and all of Britain's chattering class put together. Two UK students, ages 11 and 12, have been given detention for refusing to kneel and pray to Allah.

This from the Daily Times:

Two schoolboys were given detention after refusing to kneel down and 'pray to Allah' during a religious education lesson.

Parents were outraged that the two boys from year seven (11 to 12-year-olds) were punished for not wanting to take part in the practical demonstration of how Allah is worshipped.

They said forcing their children to take part in the exercise at Alsager High School, near Stoke-on-Trent - which included wearing Muslim headgear - was a breach of their human rights. . . .

parent Karen Williams said: "I am absolutely furious my daughter was made to take part in it and I don't find it acceptable.

"I haven't got a problem with them teaching my child other religions and a small amount of information doesn't do any harm.

"But not only did they have to pray, the teacher had gone into the class and made them watch a short film and then said 'we are now going out to pray to Allah'.

"Then two boys got detention and all the other children missed their refreshment break because of the teacher.

"Not only was it forced upon them, my daughter was told off for not doing it right.

"They'd never done it before and they were supposed to do it in another language."

"My child has been forced to pray to Allah in a school lesson." The grandfather of one of the pupils in the class said: "It's absolutely disgusting, there's no other way of putting it. . . .

Read the entire article. We should all support teaching Islam in schools - but only reality. That is something far removed from the dhimmi prep being carried out by Labour these days. And it does a tremendous disservice to those Muslims who embrace the West, who have no desire to see Sharia law imposed on the West, and are attempting to bring their religion into the 21st century. While the above example of making students pray to Allah is no doubt extreme and an anamoly, it highlights the insanity of Labour and the UK's chattering classes who believe that increasing the acceptance of a whitewashed version Islam among the UK's non-Muslim population will effect in the slightest the serious problem the UK faces with radical Isalm. Indeed, it can only be counterproductive.

Wow! Detention at a public school for refusing to pray, especially for in a religion different from your own? Shouldn't this be a lawsuit? I would expect nothing less than firing of all the school officials involved in this, from the class teacher to principal, to the education minister who instituted this insanity. Oh wait, the education minister is a radical imam, and this means he cannot be criticized or else there will be riots and blood on the street. Welcome to Dhimi Kingdom or England => Dhimiland.
