Kids Told To Write 'Allah is God'

Kids told to write 'Allah is God'

ANGRY parents have blasted a teacher for telling ten-year-olds to copy a Muslim prayer saying “There is no God but Allah”.

Helen Green is said to have picked the Muslim call to prayer as HAND-WRITING practice.

It includes the lines “Allah is the greatest” and “I bear witness that there is no God but Allah”.

Pupil Billy Darbyshire’s stepmum Hayley Clayton said: “The explanation was that the children were learning about Islam in RE.
“But this was like he was taking an oath. A Muslim child would never be asked to write a Bible passage.
“Why didn’t she choose a passage from a normal story book to teach handwriting?”

Hayley, 23, said Mrs Green — deputy head of Newlands Primary School in Wakefield, West Yorks — had acknowledged it was a “sensitive issue” because three of the 7/7 suicide bombers came from Leeds, 15 miles away.

She added: “If it’s sensitive why choose that prayer?”
Billy’s angry dad Martin, 32, said there were no Muslims in the ten-year-old’s class. He added: “I am not religious but it offended me.
“It must have been worse for children whose parents do have different beliefs.”

Wakefield Council officials said they believed the prayer had been written for RE.

Wild Thing's comment........

A world of things to ‘practice’ and this was picked? The should send Helen Green to Iran or Saudi Arabia for a year or two and let’s see how Allah friendly she is after that !!!

It is not only happening in the UK, it is happening here in America as well. We have all read before of schools here having an entire day dedicated to Muslims, their quran, their food and their customs.

GOD forbid if they wrote "I am the Lord thy God and there shalt not be any strange gods before me" or "Merry Christmas" or "GOD save the Queen!" Welcome to the once 'Great' Britain and the new Eurabian / Europeon Union 2007

She should be reprimanded severely for that, but it's like they do with all immigrants--coddle them until they take over and then whine about it.
Even here, the separation of church and state is falling apart too.
We give them rights they don't have and no one says anything about it. But they look at us who do say something as it we are mean, bigoted and cruel.
Whatever happened to The Quick Brown Fox jumped over the lazy dog?
That has ever letter of the alphabet.
That's what we learned on.

you are so right. THAT would violate the "establishment" clause.

Freedom from truth, more like.

Amen darth. That is the plain, simple truth.

Darth, yes now that would probably make the teacher have a fit. These jerks will be the first ones to moan of an attack I bet.

Lynn, I wonder too, I learned on that too like you said, and this teacher wants to do it differently to cater to the Muslims. sheesh

HI fidothedog, thanks for letting me know. Good to see you.

Jack,yesss, I wish they did have that kind of punishment. This crazy world can't even punish Jane Fonda. grrrrrrrrr

I would love to know when the heck did we get rid of punishment for treason. This teacher imo is committing treason teaching children this kind of thing.

Of note:
The Shahada, which is the central declaration of faith for a Muslim, states: 'There is no God but Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet."
Islam has never shied away from conversions at sword-point or the use of deception in conversions. Consider that.
In other words, if these kids pronounced these words, according to Islamic doctrine they are Muslims. Period.
Think this was a 'random' assignment still?
