Guest column
Accused terrorist drafted America's public school guidelines

Jen Shroder

Jen Shroder
December 20, 2003

Abdurahman Alamoudi, arrested and accused of helping Osama bin Laden and Hamas, helped develop "Religious Expression in Public School," introduced and incorporated by President Clinton in 1995.

School districts were pressured to incorporate these "Presidential Guidelines" which were originally drafted as "Religion In The Public Schools: A Joint Statement Of Current Law," issued by groups including the American Muslim Council, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and the ACLU which holds the copyright. President Clinton presented his version as "issued by 35 religious groups," failing to disclose that these "religious groups" are all described by the ACLU as committed to separation of church and state.

Abdurahman Alamoudi, currently incarcerated for terrorist ties, met often with then-President and Hillary Clinton and has been described as Hillary's friend and advisor on Islamic affairs. Protected by Clinton's Presidential Guidelines, funding for Islamic educational materials poured in from Saudi Arabia and Muslim nations. Houghton Mifflin textbooks became saturated with Muslim beliefs as the Council of Islamic Education (CIE) helped write the textbook (originally denied until the publisher's Editorial Director was caught bragging about it in print).

CIE Director Shabbir Mansuri boasted that he is waging a "bloodless" revolution, promoting world cultures and faiths in America's classrooms. CIE has warned scholars and public officials who do not sympathize with its requests that they will be perceived as racists, reactionaries, and enemies of Islam.

Islamic organizations that remind Muslims it is their RELIGIOUS OBLIGATION (Dawa) to promulgate Islam are applauding Clinton and his religious guidelines today:

    "In the U.S., one of the strongest arguments in favor of seeking religious accommodation for your child is President Bill Clinton's 1995 statement of principles addressing the extent to which religious expression and activity are permitted in public school. This was given to every school district in the United States." —SoundVision

Additionally, Clinton went beyond the ACLU guidelines and added:

    "Students generally do not have a Federal right to be excused from lessons that may be inconsistent with their religious beliefs or practices."

Pay attention. There went religious freedom.

At the end of his term, Clinton addressed Muslim leaders with a Ramadan message. With almost exact quotes from our children's textbooks today, Clinton openly lists his accomplishments to Muslims:

    "As America's six-million-member Muslim community grows in numbers and prominence, Americans of every religious tradition are learning more about the origins and meaning of Islam. That on "the Night of Power," the Angel Gabriel appeared to the Prophet Muhammad and revealed to him the first verses of the Koran. That the Koran declares that Ramadan was the month Allah's words were sent down, and so should be spent in fasting." —Bill Clinton

As terrorists executed attacks on America, then-President Clinton slashed our defenses, gutted our intelligence, pardoned terrorists, halted investigations of Islamic charities, and negotiated for peace — evidently with a powerful bargaining chip: our children, through our public education system. Islam is determined to advance, entering by persuasion within our public schools and by sword at our borders. President Clinton has clearly provided both doorways as we are swarmed by militant Islamic fundamentalists, courting our children while bombing our buildings.

Is it hard to believe Clinton, professing to be Christian, could betray Christ and America like this? Examine the fruit. Lying under oath, dubious activities with his staff, slipping in an ACLU document as written by "religious groups" is compounded when one remembers how Hillary demanded public funding for (brace yourself) a dung covered depiction of the Virgin Mary, with breasts of elephant dung, surrounded by genital pornography at the Brooklyn Museum in October 1999.

Together, the Clintons met with Muslim groups in the White House so often it became commonplace. In speeches against President Bush, Bill Clinton has condemned America by blaming us for the Crusades. With this kind of history, it is not hard to believe that Clinton betrayed America's Christian heritage and used our children as bargaining chips in negotiations with Islamic leaders.

Christmas and Nativity scenes are outlawed, yet a California judge recently approved "Islam: A Simulation" handouts directing children to "become Muslim, pray to Allah, recite the Quran, and fast for Ramadan." The double standard is shocking, but one need only look at our public school guidelines and who wrote them — with clauses designed to open or close doors at the will of the ACLU — to discover how our nation finds itself in such a dreadful state today.

Jen Shroder is founder of BlessedCause, an organization dedicated to restoring sanity to our public schools and exposing the Islamic indoctrination of American textbooks. Shroder has been interviewed by Fox News, Associated Press, and dozens of talk radio hosts and news media.

BlessedCause was publicly named by the California Democrats as "behind the recall," and shortly thereafter a plot to frame BlessedCause was discovered and exposed before fruition.

There is evidence that BlessedCause has made political impacts in the John Walker Lindh case. BlessedCause has been covertly linked to by the International Atomic Energy Agency, the United Nation's nuclear watchdog, raising questions about the Clinton administration and our public school affinity to Islam.

Jen Shroder began BlessedCause as a mere mom outraged by the homework assignments and textbooks her children brought home from public school, and claims God's leading as the only explanation for the success of her website, BlessedCause.org.

She can be contacted at blessedcause@charter.net.
