How CAIR Shaped San Diego’s Public Schools

In April 2017, the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) School Board approved a plan to address anti-Muslim bullying in schools. Beginning this fall, students will “learn more about [Islam] in social studies….Schools…will review and vet materials related to Muslim culture and history…and provide resources and material for teachers…and…promote a more positive image of Islam.” The driving force behind the plan, however, is the Council on American-Islamic Relations – San Diego (CAIR-SD), which has a history of ties to radical Islamists.

CAIR-SD and the SDUSD School Board have a long-standing relationship. In November 2015, the Board commended CAIR-SD for “ten years of teaching students to accept and honor religious and cultural differences,” as well as its partnership with “the District’s Office of Race/Human Relations and Advocacy,” and its involvement “in mediating situations…that involve discrimination.”

In July 2016, Hanif Mohebi, CAIR-SD’s Executive Director, lobbied the School Board to adopt an official anti-Muslim bullying plan. Over the past six months, Mohebi has lectured students and teachers on “Islamophobia” at more than a dozen District schools. At these sessions, Mohebi has distributed a pamphlet offering to help Muslim students “file a complaint” against school administrators and to provide students with “resources about your faith…(to)… share with administrators and teachers.” But should Mohebi and CAIR-SD be teaching students their particular brand of Islam?

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
