Islamist School Wins DOE Excellence Award
October 20, 20005 - Philadelphia, PA - PipeLineNews.org - Jihad through Da’wa [conversion of non-Muslims] in the form of domestic Islamic education has gotten a boost from an unlikely source, the U.S. government.
The administration has just presented the New Horizons Islamic School in Pasadena, California the United States Department of Education’s “Blue Ribbon for Excellence” award.
This first ever award to a Muslim school appears to validate the predictions which cleric Yusuf Qaradawi made a decade ago, at a Muslim Youth conference in Ohio.
“…Some countries will fall to the armed Islamic jihad, but in others, such as the United States, victory will come through Da’wa - the teaching of Islam to non-Muslims - which will trigger Westerners to convert to Islam ‘in droves.’ We will conquer America not by the sword but by Da’wa.”
Qawadari has since been banned from the U.S. due to his terror connections, but his vision of Da’wa transforming America into a United States of Allah, is reflected in the curriculum used in schools like that of New Horizons and as developed by affiliates such as ISNA [The Islamic Society of North America]. the BIAE [The Board of Islamic and Arabic Education] and the UK based IBERR [International Board for Education Research and Resources].
The BIAE, based in Los Angeles - which plans the curriculum of the New Horizons School together with the Islamic Center of Southern California even offers an Islamized version of the Pledge of Allegiance on their website. It begins with the phrase - “As an American Muslim I pledge allegiance to ALLAH and his Prophet.”
