Allah in the Classroom — the ABC’s of Forced Conversion

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Our children are our world as parents. They are the future of our nation. Most of us would gladly sacrifice all we have and our lives for our little ones. So, why do we so readily hand their learning and their care over to those that would abuse them and trick them into being part of the greatest evil the world has ever known? It figures that the young, innocent ones would be a prime target for Islam and are what they term, ‘fertile ground’ for their broken philosophy. Between such programs as Common Core, Connect All Schools and CSCOPE, CAIR has been ensuring that the textbooks that teach our children go out of their way to teach Islamic history and to have the children indoctrinated into Islam. CAIR has even gotten textbooks in private schools, charter schools and home schooling programs to include their revisionist history.The Islamization of the curriculum and the school room itself in American schools is thoroughly covered by Pamela Geller at Atlas shrugs in her book: Stop the Islamization of America. Do buy and read the book and then home school your children after reviewing their ordered teaching materials. You should not be surprised either that Qatar is heavily vested in all this – they fund Connect All Schools and Common Core. On October 24th and 25th, hundreds of schools, leadership teams, and teachers from across the region gathered in Dubai, to learn about the Common Core State Standards, share curricula and best practices, and network with each other. Ask yourselves, why Dubai? Surely, Bill Gates and Jeb Bush know, since they are helping to fund it as well. They are very cozy with the Islamic states – all that money and power – motivation for selling out our children and country many times over.

Across America, in over 100 schools now, in Social Studies and World History classes, the proselytizing for Islam is being pushed and hard. It does not include the 1,400 year history of Jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural genocide and enslavement, not to mention the extermination of the entire Jewish Banu Qurayza tribe of Arabia, as Pamela Geller puts it. What it does include, and what I find infuriating beyond words, is the Shahada and the Five Pillars of Islam. The Shahada is an Islamic creed declaring belief in the oneness of God and the acceptance of Muhammad as God’s prophet. It is recited to convert someone to Islam. That’s right… they are actively converting your children to their religion. Now, how do you feel about it? Then the little ones are forced to learn the Five Pillars of Islam.

Here is an example from a textbook (by the way, this has been going on for some time now in the public school system):

Jesus was mentioned once as a Jewish prophet in the first chapter and the second chapter briefly discussed the division within the Christian Church. Chapter three is dedicated completely to Islam and the story of Muhammad, with multiple quotes from the Qur’an throughout the chapter. The book even goes on to say that “. . .Muhammad revealed the purest version of God’s truth” and that Muhammad is the final prophet of God’s truth with the most complete version of that truth.

So much for separation of church and state. Evidently that only applies to other religions, not Islam. Can you imagine how confused the children must be? And those that come from Christian and Jewish homes surely know deep down this is wrong and abhorrent to their faith. The children are having to write and say the Muslim declaration of faith (the Shahada), over and over.

When Muslims force Christians to convert, they are forced to say the Shahada. The Arabic writing on the black flag of Jihad (also known as the al Qaeda flag or ISIS flag) is the Shahada. This is the mantra of supremacism and imperialism that is being forced on American school kids and their families. Children are more susceptible to conversion than adults and if pressed on it are likely to cave to make the teacher happy. After repeated exposure to the ideology, they start to get their thoughts turned around. Soon, they are indoctrinated and sucked into the philosophy, despite the teachings of their church and their parents. Face it… teachers spend a lot of time with your children. By the time a parent knows what is going on, it is too late. And by the time they are in high school, they have aligned with radicals and radical precepts throughout the religion.

A number of parents across America are beginning to wake up to the brainwashing in the schools being foisted on their children. A number of them are saying enough is enough.

Let’s start with the Marine veteran who complained about the pro-Islam bias in his daughter’s schoolwork in Maryland. He was banned from her school for objecting to said bias. It’s his child and his right – we are not the Middle East… not yet, any way.

From the Daily Caller:

A Maryland father who asked that his daughter be excused from learning about Islam in her world history class now finds himself under a no-trespass order that prevents him from setting foot on the girl’s public school campus.

The events leading to the no-trespass order occurred at La Plata High School in La Plata, Md., a small town about 30 miles southeast of Washington, D.C., SoMDNews reports, a website for three local newspapers.

The dad is Kevin Wood, a former corporal and eight-year veteran in the U.S. Marine Corps.

Wood was initially upset because he did not want his daughter, a high school junior, to participate in instruction about Islam.

He called the school district office last week, first speaking to an administrative assistant and eventually speaking to La Plata High vice principal Shannon Morris.

A school district spokeswoman, Katie O’Malley-Simpson, said Wood threatened to cause problems at the school during his conversation with Morris. O’Malley-Simpson provided no specific information about any threats the former Marine made.

“Safety comes first,” she told SoMDNews. “We don’t allow disruptions at the schools, especially if we’re forewarned of them.”

Wood denies making any threats. His version of the conversation is that he explained in no uncertain terms that he does “not believe in” Islam and wants his daughter removed from class while other students study the Muslim religion.

This Marine fought and bled for his country. He has the right to request his child not be subjected to Islamic indoctrination. I believe him when he says he made no threats. He was treated like this because he was military and because he would not comply. I suggest he remove his child from this school and find another educational venue, post haste.

The Marine is not the first, by a long shot, either. In Volusia County, Florida, hundreds protested Islamic lessons in their “World History” text, a Common Core-approved high school history textbook. It would have been thousands if all parents knew and grasped exactly what was being taught to their children in the name of Allah.

In Massachusetts, another public school got caught teaching the Shahada to students. Their textbook also celebrates Muhammad’s life. You can bet it doesn’t celebrate Jesus’ life, because you know… that would be bad.

From Yahoo! News:

Millions of students in public schools don’t understand fractions or pronouns at even a basic level but students in the oceanfront Boston suburb of Revere, Mass. are taking the time to learn all about Islam — in the most embarrassingly shallow and cheerleading way imaginable.

Part of the textbook prints the Muslim Call to Prayer, according to Boston NBC affiliate WHDH.

“I bear witness that there is no God but Allah,” it says.

The textbook portion also reverently celebrates Muhammad’s life.

“Muhammad never expected to change world,” the admiring, rah-rah textbook reads.

“Muhammad later tended sheep on the dry hills like many young Arabians,” the text explains. “Later he became a successful merchant and married a wealthy widow. However, he felt as though something was missing in his life, so he went on a retreat.”

The founder of Islam was “upset about the cruelty of his people,” the text also optimistically explains. They “killed baby girls.” They “treated their slaves unkindly.” And “Muhammad had a strong sense of right and wrong.”

One local parent, Anthony Giannino, is upset about the textbook’s treatment of the Muslim religion.

“No religion should be taught in school,” Giannino told WHDH. “It says Allah is their only God. That’s insulting to me as a Christian who believes in just Jesus only.”

“We don’t believe in Allah. I don’t believe in my son learning about this here,” Giannino added. “If my son was from another country and came here, he would have been catered to.”

The mad dad said he pulled his son out of his elementary school when he found out about the textbook’s treatment of Islam.

Other parents say they don’t see what the problem is.

“What is Muslim about? What is Christianity about? That’s what I teach at home,” parent Idalia Garcia told the Fox station. “Everybody should respect everybody else’s religion.”

The school district superintendent has since penned a letter to parents assuring them that the congratulatory statements about Islam are merely part of the district’s history curriculum.

It goes on… in California, parents are also pulling their son from a classroom at Manhattan Beach Middle School for teaching the tenets Islam:

The father said, “The audacity of this school, to think that they can sit these children down and teach ’em whatever religion they please; it’s preposterous. This is illegal, basically. You can’t teach religion in schools any more, but apparently, in this particular school, at least, that’s not the case.”

Parents said they discovered that what their children were learning about Islam was more about the tenets of the faith than the history of the religion, according to KTLA. One question asked the students to write down teachings from the Koran.

The father continued, “What I saw written in these bubbles was, ‘The one true God, Allah’ in one of the bubbles. In one of the other bubbles was ‘All people must submit to Allah,’ in another bubble. The I turned the page over and I see the five pillars of Islam.”

The parents assert that the students should be taught the history behind the religions, whether it is Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, or others, but not the tenets of the faith.

Father: “Can you imagine the outcry all over this country if children were bringing home paperwork that asked them to write down John 3:16, or asked them to write down the 10 Commandments?”

Mother: “And if it ended with the Declaration of the Faith, Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior? That’s what the equivalent, I mean, part of us, for our son? We’d be happy about that.”

Father: “But some parents may not be.”

The parents talked to the principal, but the school refused to change the schoolwork, prompting the parents to remove their son from the class. The school would not respond to questions from KTLA.

In Tennessee, the abhorrent Nation of Islam has even gotten into the schools. At least two reports have come in that third graders have received Nation of Islam propaganda:

A second parent has now come forward acknowledging their child received a Nation of Islam “handout” in a third grade class at Harold McCormick Elementary School in Elizabethton, Tennessee – contradicting claims by the school district that the document was not distributed in the classroom.

I first told you about this story on Monday. Parent Sommer Bauer told me her son’s teacher gave him a document that portrayed the presidents on Mount Rushmore as being racists.

We still don’t know how that Nation of Islam information found its way into that third grade classroom.

School superintendent E.C. Alexander refuted allegations that the Nation of Islam document had been distributed in class. He told me the document was never meant for public distribution and that the child took the sheet of paper from the teacher’s work station without her permission.

“The student (without permission) took the sheet from a “ton” of discarded teacher’s material on that table; then, the student took it home and gave it to the parent,” Alexander wrote in an email to educators after my column was published.

Supt. Alexander also posted a statement on the school district’s website. He hurled all sorts of allegations my way – words like “misleading” and “totally incorrect” and “sensational.”

Yet, he never got around to telling us what was misleading or totally incorrect or sensational. And we still don’t know how that Nation of Islam information found its way into that third grade classroom.


So what happened inside that third grade classroom at Harold McCormick Elementary School?

According to the parent, the children were separated into four groups. Each group was given two “sheets of paper.”

“The teacher held up each one and said, ‘These do not go home. These are just to use here,” the parent told me.

The Nation of Islam “sheet ” explained that George Washington hailed from Virginia, a “prime breeder of black people.” Of Theodore Roosevelt, it was alleged he called Africans “ape-like.” There were also disparaging comments made about Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln.

The parent told me that the teacher did not teach students from the Nation of Islam “sheet.” But she did hand it to the students.

This is the active Mosqueing of our schools – turning them into Madrassas. Even in Massachusetts, the home of the Boston Marathon bombing, you see a Muslim promoted to Captain in the Boston Police force and the Shahada being recited in their schools. The Saudis have bought entire public school textbook publishers — it would seem, even our children’s future is for sale. Todd Starnes of Fox News says there are over 80 textbooks across the nation teaching and promoting this bias.

Islam has slaughtered, tortured, raped and enslaved millions. As recently as the 1990s, I had never seen a hijab or a burka. I had never seen a mosque. Now they are everywhere and our schools have been infested with a violent ideology that covets the souls of our children. Allah has no place in our classrooms and these forced and subversive conversions of children are evil and despicable. Get your children out of public schooling whatever it takes. Even if you have them in private school, charter schools or home schooling, you better take the time to review their textbooks and talk to your children. Their lives and the future of the nation depends on it.


Common Core and Qatar—Sharia Education for All!

A little while back I spent several months researching the Common Core curriculum, and what I discovered absolutely shocked me. At times, it left me utterly incredulous. I wrote a two-part article on the subject. I still have part three (final installment) in progress. And I will be wrapping up that series of articles here in the near future. But the deeper I dig into Common Core, the more it has led me on numerous research paths, some of which interlock with what I thought were unrelated research paths. I still haven’t absorbed or synthesized it all.

One of the things repeated over and over again in Common Core literature is the concept of “global citizenship.” Although it may sound innocuous to some, the concept of “global citizenship” requires wiping away the concept of patriotism–allegiance to one’s own country of origin.

What I find particularly insidious about Common Core is the emphasis on attempting to change values, beliefs, feelings and behaviors, instead of knowledge, understanding and comprehension as the primary focus for teaching and learning. But, as far as the creators and active promoters of Common Core standards are concerned, the attempt to change values, beliefs, feelings and behaviors is seen as a necessity in order to reverse allegiance to one’s own nation (eliminate national sovereignty), and instead embrace the Marxian socialist concept of being a good “citizen of the world.”

Common Core is not just about national standards for education in the United States. The Common Core initiative is about importing international standards into numerous nations. The purpose is to inculcate young minds to accept collectivism globally—wipe out patriotism … wipe out the very notion of “national sovereignty.” Apparently we all exist for the benefit of a political class now—away with the individual … sweep away knowledge and independent thought based in logic and reason.

There are many big-time global players pushing Common Core standards. Not too long ago, I learned a major sponsor for worldwide terrorism, Qatar, is connected with Common Core. So, once again, I’m reminded of author M. Stanton Evans’ Law of Inadequate Paranoia,” which states, “No matter how bad you think something is, when you look into it, it is always worse.”

For example, the BBC is reporting Qatar wants to build schools … everywhere in the world—Sharia education for all!

Via the BBC:

The goal of universal primary education, a promise broken for decades, can be achieved in the next seven years, says Sheikha Moza bint Nasser.

The senior member of the Qatari royal family and education campaigner wants to galvanise the international community to provide education for 58 million children around the world without access to school.

World leaders made a millennium pledge this would be reached by 2015 – but this deadline is almost certain to be missed.

The target is likely to slip back to 2030. But Sheikha Moza, married to the former ruler, and mother of the current ruler of the wealthy Gulf state, says it could be reached in half that time.

It might be a case of royals not wanting to be kept waiting, but she calls for a much greater sense of urgency.

“It can be achieved. But we really need people to commit themselves. We need politicians to understand the power of education for their own countries, for their economies. It should not be seen as a luxury. It is essential.”

A few weeks ago Terresa Monroe-Hamilton and William Michael wrote about the cozy relationship between Qatar and former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg, and their connection to Common Core:

Via Noisy Room:

Bloomberg actively brought Qatar into New York’s classrooms and is forcing Arabic as a language on students via Common Core and the Qatar Foundation International.

“No matter how bad you think something is, when you look into it, it is always worse.”

Amen, Mr. Evans … AMEN!


The Ties That Bind Michael Bloomberg, Qatar and Radical Islam

Terresa Monroe-Hamilton – NoisyRoom.net
William Michael – Qatar Awareness Campaign

Michael Bloomberg, in addition to having been Mayor of New York City and currently being a wealthy elitist Leftist, has ongoing ties to the Islamic world and Qatar. In fact, many of his regulatory moves and his philanthropy efforts are connected to one degree or another with Qatar and Islamic nations, causes and endeavors. Qatar, the reader should be reminded, is the host country of the Muslim Brotherhood and is the primary supporter of the Arab Spring, including the genocidal Islamic State.

Common Core is a huge, Progressive educational implementation in New York City which benefits Microsoft and a host of other businesses. Bloomberg is a major supporter of Common Core and strongly believes in it. So, incidentally (or not), does Qatar. One of Bloomberg’s projects is the Fund for Public Schools, whose primary building block is Common Core. In 2013, Bloomberg Philanthropies donated $1,000,000 or more to this endeavor. George Soros and The Open Society Foundations also donated $1,000,000 or more. Qatar Foundation International, LLC donated somewhere between $100,000 and $499,999. The Qatar Foundation donates to educational causes that directly benefit Islam and Qatar. The Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development is a semi-private chartered, non-profit organization, founded in 1995 by Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, the Father Emir (the current Emir is His Highness Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani), and his second wife Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned. In addition to private funding, it is government-supported and partly government-funded.

Time Summit on Higher Education - Day 2: Vartan Gregorian, Michael Bloomberg, Nancy Gibbs

The links between Bloomberg and the Qatar Foundation go even deeper. Vartan Gregorian and Michael Bloomberg attended the TIME Summit On Higher Education at the Time Warner Center on September 20, 2013 in New York City. This is significant on multiple fronts. Common Core is linked to Connect All Schools. The Department of State has partnered with the Connect All Schools program which is linked to Vartan Gregorian. He in turn, is connected in a myriad of ways to Barack Obama, not the least of which is that he is a member of the White House Fellowship Commission. Gregorian hails from Tabriz, Iran and is currently the President of Carnegie Corporation. More interestingly for Bloomberg is that Gregorian sits on the board of the Qatar Foundation International (QFI).

From Maggie’s Notebook:

The Qatar Foundation International, or QFI, in 2011 partnered with the Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to facilitate matchmaking between classrooms in the U.S. and international schools through something called the “Connect All Schools” project.

QFI, funded by the Qatari government, explains on its website the initiative was founded in response to Obama’s call in his June 2009 speech to the Arab world in Cairo, Egypt, to “create a new online network, so a young person in Kansas can communicate instantly with a young person in Cairo.”

* QFI relates how more than 100 U.S. schools and organizations have already connected on the interactive website. [* Public and Private schools.]

The stated goal of the initiative is to “connect every school in the U.S. with the world by 2016.”…

WND reported last May the Qatar-based foundation awarded “Curriculum Grants” to seven U.S. schools and language organizations to “develop comprehensive and innovative curricula and teaching materials to be used in any Arabic language classroom.”

QFI, based in Washington, D.C., is the U.S. branch of the Qatar Foundation, founded in 1995 by Qatar’s ruling emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani.

Thani is still the group’s vice-chairman, while one of his three wives, Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, chairs the organization’s board.

Thani also launched Al Jazeera in 1996 and served as the television network’s chairman. Source: Counter-Jihad Report

In 2012, the nonprofit provided $250,000 for a three-year pilot project for Arabic language at P.S. 368 in Harlem, reports DNA info New York.


The  classes are voluntary this year, but next year, * all second through fifth grade students will be required to take Arabic as part of the curriculum.

The program is the first of its kind in New York City to integrate Arabic into an elementary school curriculum, organizers said.

The classes are a joint program between the Language Project and the Washington, D.C.-based, non-profit Qatar Foundation International.

“This is important because in the near future, Arabic is going to be a global language,” Mamdouh added.

“These kids are like sponges the way they learn the pronunciation and the words.”

[* Emphasis added.]

It should be noted that Arabic grammar is based on the Quran and its verses. When studying Arabic grammar, there is no substitute for studying the Quran. Expecting that the Quran would not be a part of Arabic lessons, is akin to saying that the time-tested grade school “Speller” could be omitted when teaching English.

bloomberg1Bloomberg actively brought Qatar into New York’s classrooms and is forcing Arabic as a language on students via Common Core and the Qatar Foundation International.

Michael Bloomberg was also a supporter of the Ground Zero Mosque (the Cordoba House, which is now Park51 – a three story museum with a worship space). The Cordoba Center would have been a 13-story monument to Islam, that would have housed a bookstore, auditorium, basketball court and a mosque. It would have cost well in excess of $100 million. It was to be built on the site of the former Burlington Coat Factory, whose roof was destroyed by falling debris from the towers on 9/11, just 600 feet from where the towers stood. Set to have replaced the current al-Farah mosque located 12 blocks north in Tribeca, the project was the inspiration of Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf, whose father built the enormous 96th St. complex in 1984 and who proclaims himself a peacemaker. The Center earned endorsements from then New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and prominent rabbis, along with funding from the Hunt Alternative Fund, the Carnegie Foundation, the Rockefeller Fund (whose director of grants programs, Taleb Salhab, founded the Coalition for Peace and Justice in Palestine and is the former director of the Palestine Aid Society of America) and the government of Qatar. On the 10th anniversary of 9/11, Bloomberg refused to allow clergy to attend the event. He also did not want the names of those murdered on that fateful day read and he banned first responders on the same anniversary. All in the name of not offending Muslims and Islam.

Bloomberg has also notably instilled variants of Sharia law in NYC via allowing exceptions for prayer times regardless of job affiliation. The Call to Prayer rings out in Manhattan these days as well and the number of mosques in NYC has literally exploded over the last few years. Many of which receive funds from Qatar.

bloomberg3Bloomberg has offices in Doha and across the Middle East. In fact, Bloomberg and Qatar are financially connected in many ways. Witness the Bloomberg Doha Conference. The focus of the joint conference in the past was on the condition of various industries in Middle Eastern countries. The topics of discussion included the state of the economies in these countries, the condition of oil and energy production companies, and industries and companies most suitable for investment in, among other topics.

This year, the Bloomberg Doha Conference will take place from November 3rd through the 4th in Doha, Qatar. The conference will cover areas such as setting the agenda; the global perspective; regional landscape; transition of power; the new Qatari leadership; a conversation with Sir Michael Hintze; Islamic finance; real estate; Saudi energy markets and geopolitics; Iran, Syria and regional political stability; asset allocation; where are the opportunities in the region; traditional versus alternative, wealth preservation for the new generation; World Cup spending and development; regulation and the role this plays for managers looking at the region; investment destinations outside the Middle East and following the money. All of this indicates a strong, intrinsic financial and strategic relationship between Bloomberg and Qatar.

Moreover, Bloomberg and the Qatar Central Bank launched an Interbank Rate in 2012. From Business Wire:

NEW YORK & DOHA, Qatar–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Qatar Central Bank (QCB) and Bloomberg LP are partnering to launch the first ever Qatar Interbank Offer Rate (QIBOR) fixings in a move aimed at encouraging a more active interbank market in Qatar, executives announced today. Interbank rate fixings are used around the world to provide a daily reference point for banks borrowing unsecured funds from other banks in the local wholesale banking market and this announcement brings Qatar into that market for the first time.

QIBOR, which will use the contributed offer rates quoted by nine panel banks, will be calculated by Bloomberg and published on the QCB website and the Bloomberg Professional® service (QCBQ <GO>) beginning on May 6th at 10:00 a.m. Doha local time and each subsequent business day at the same time. QIBOR fixings for eight different time maturities ranging from overnight to one year will be publicly available each day making market activity transparent to other banks around the world.

HE Sheikh Abdulla Saoud Al Thani, Governor of Qatar Central Bank, commented, “In establishing the first-ever benchmark interbank rate in Qatar it was vital that we worked with a partner with deep expertise and credibility in this area. Bloomberg is the market leader for financial data and extending our relationship with them will help position Qatar as a growing force in the global financial markets.”

The list of member banks on the QIBOR panel includes Ahli Bank; Al Khalij Commercial Bank; Arab Bank; BNP Paribas; Commercial Bank of Qatar; Doha Bank; International Bank of Qatar; Qatar National Bank; and Standard Chartered Bank which represent the largest local and international banks currently participating in the Qatar interbank market.

Jean-Paul Zammitt, Global Head of Product Development for the Bloomberg Professional service, commented, “With the launch of QIBOR, the Qatar Central Bank is progressively promoting interbank activity in its maturing market. Bloomberg promotes transparency and we continue to work closely with central banks to support and develop their local markets.”

Additionally, Bloomberg has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. In 2011, Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal announced plans to partner with the Bloomberg news service to establish a new Arabic language news channel. Prince Talal’s donations to the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), both part of the US Muslim Brotherhood, as well as his support of the Georgetown University (for more on Qatar and Georgetown, see here) Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (CCMU), run by long-time Muslim Brotherhood supporter Dr. John Esposito, are well documented. In 2008, an Arab business publication reported that Prince Talal had also made numerous financial contributions to a pan-Islamic interfaith dialog organization that is closely tied to the global Muslim Brotherhood and which has an anti-Semitic statement posted on its website. In March of 2008, the Kingdom Foundation established by Prince Talal was one of the sponsors of a conference held by the World Congress of Muslim Philanthropists (WCMP), a new international Islamic philanthropic organization with strong Muslim Brotherhood representation. So, to partner with Talal, is to partner with the Muslim Brotherhood.

In my recent article, “The Brookings Institution and Qatar — The Money, Power and Influence Behind Global Terror,” I discussed how American think tanks are indeed, acting like, and at the behest of, foreign agents. Their influence and direction is directly controlled by those funding them such as Qatar, a known sponsor of terrorism worldwide. So, it is no surprise that Leonid Bershidsky at Bloomberg View takes exception with that viewpoint:

The U.S. should hang on to what differentiates it from repressive regimes like Putin’s, and lightly applied FARA legislation is one such differentiator. The U.S. government shouldn’t care who funds research, or sponsors events at which U.S. officials sit next to those from foreign countries. What matters is whether rival points of view also get a hearing.

Wrong. You cannot use a monster such as Putin as cover to deal with other monsters such as Qatar and justify it as ‘differentiation.’ We should certainly care who funds our think tanks and rival points of view should not be considered when they come from terrorists and murderers. As we have seen in science, “funding” very much drives the conclusions of research; in the same way “funding” will drive the conclusions of conferences and think tanks.

Michael Bloomberg has said of his work on gun safety, obesity and smoking cessation: “I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.” Unfortunately, he does not specify which God or heaven he is referring to. But it is comforting that he seems to “know the mind of God.”

You can also see the money trail leading to Qatar, etc. concerning Bloomberg’s Nanny State initiatives. One of these, the banning of smoking indoors, fits in with Islam as the use of tobacco is haram (i.e., forbidden). For instance, the Nigerian Islamist group – Boko Haram, established by a Qatari proxy who now resides in Doha – executed two people recently for smoking. Bloomberg partnered with the Turkish AKP, an Islamist party hostile to Israel and secular Turks, to seriously curtail smoking in that country, just as he did in New York City:

Crowing about the success of Bloomberg Philanthropies’ anti-smoking campaign in Turkey recently, he said that “Turkey is a great example, and it can be translated to other countries.” BP has been working with the Turkish government since 2009, when its nationwide public smoking ban first went into effect. According to the World Health Organization’s 2013 report on the “Global Tobacco Epidemic”–also funded by BP–smoking in Turkey decreased from 16 million adults in 2008 to 14.8 million in 2013.

In Turkey, where terrorism reigns and encroaching and aggressive Sharia law continues to oppose basic human rights, Bloomberg is fighting a war on smoking. For instance, Turkey leads the world in imprisoned journalists. Ironic, since Bloomberg fancies himself the ultimate journalist and businessman. This is a country at the forefront of a rising Caliphate — one in which Christians and Jews are especially persecuted for their religious views. Bloomberg Philanthropies have spent over $600 million on tobacco control advocacy and research since 2007. Speaking to a group of anti-smoking activists in Turkey earlier this summer, Bloomberg joked that his philanthropy may win him a Nobel prize. Yes, because an award dripping in blood is a prized possession and all that.

Bloomberg’s deep ties to Islamic tyrants, their countries and their money should disqualify him from being considered for any position related to national security, especially Secretary of Defense. But this is the Obama Administration and background checks are only for those that are politically unacceptable to the regime. Michael Bloomberg, who has no military experience whatsoever, was considered by Robert Gates as a possible Pentagon successor. Of course, Gates also considered Hillary Clinton, Colin Powell and Leon Panetta. All of them security risks, Panetta and his Marxist history won out and the rest is Progressive history. It is noteworthy that Gates was the President of Texas A&M when they established a satellite campus in Doha in 2003, completely funded by the Qatar Foundation.

As for Bloomberg’s contributions to and the enforcement of the green movement in New York… Qatar and Bloomberg both push the faux emergency state of climate change. It benefits them both financially and in seeking global power shifts. Qatar, a major supplier of natural gas and to a lesser extent, oil, would rather see the world voluntarily starve itself of domestically produced energy.

The ties that bind Michael Bloomberg, Qatar and radical Islam together are deep, murky and complex. As always… follow the money and the quest for power. You will find those such as Bloomberg cozying up to terrorist states such as Qatar for their 30 pieces of silver.
