Egyptian born Usama Dakdok is the president of the Straight Way of Grace Ministry. He travels across the country with one burning, passionate desire: 'Revealing the Truth About Islam'. He works to equip churches to minister to Muslims and warns all Americans about the deceptive methods used by Muslims to advance Islam. He speaks fluent Arabic and has produced an accurate translation of the Qur'an into English. He's also written the two-volume set, 'Exposing the Truth About the Qur'an, the Revelation of Error'.
This Crosstalk looks at Chatham Middle School in New Jersey where 7th grade students have become the target of Islamic indoctrination via information that's part of New Jersey's Core Content Standards. This indoctrination involves having children view a cartoon promotional video.
The video starts out with two boys playing soccer. All of a sudden in the distance the Islamic call to prayer is heard. This leads the Muslim boy to use this as an opportunity to teach the other boy about Islam. After the Muslim boy finishes explaining the five pillars of Islam, he says that he has to go and pray. The Muslim boy leaves, leaving the non-Muslim boy with a blank look on his face. The Muslim boy returns and says, 'Would you like to go see how I pray?' The non-Muslim boy breaks into a big smile and says, 'OK, sure!' and off they go.
The promotional video defines Islam this way: 'Islam, a shining beacon against the darkness of repression, segregation, intolerance and racism.' This effort also declares to children that Islam is the true faith while also describing Islam as '...faith of divine guidance for humanity based on peace, spirituality and the oneness of God.'
Usama noted that Islam is not a faith, it is a savage cult, therefore Islam is anything but peace. Qur'an 47:55 is the only verse where Allah mentions peace. This verse instructs Muslims not to call for peace when you have the upper hand. He believes Muslims may be peaceful for the next five or ten years but when they have the upper hand, you can kiss that peace goodbye.
According to WND.com, parents wanted to know who picked the curriculum, the video and the accompanying PowerPoint presentation yet none of these concerns were addressed by the school board or the superintendent. In response, the parents have spoken out about this on a national level and have obtained legal counsel to help fight this.
As this program moved along, Usama and Jim discussed...
...the Islamic 'Shahada' and how the video presentation deceptively presents it in
a way that's false according to Islam.
...how the parents are being treated by school officials and other parents.
...this action in relation to the establishment clause of the Constitution.
...what parents can do to be pro-active in stopping such efforts.
