“AMZombie 0″ emailed me today with this interesting article of Islamic intrusion into America’s public schools.
You may remember the elementary school in New York which is now requiring their students to learn Arabic. Well, the Qatar Foundation International (QFI) is one of the groups financing that little endeavor. In fact QFI even gloats about it all over the main page of their website: as this snapshot from earlier today shows:

In an article on the Muslim Brotherhood, Family Security Matters notes the following concerning the Qatar Foundation International (highlighting and underscoring are mine):
The IDB Prize Selection Committee, chaired by Professor Hatem Karanshawy, dean of the faculty of Islamic studies at Qatar Foundation and composed of eminent scholars and experts from outside and inside the [Islamic Development Bank (IDB)], met at the IDB headquarters on May 15 and decided unanimously to award the IDB Prize in Islamic Economics for the year 1432H to the Islamic Foundation, UK by issuing the following statement: The IDB Prize Selection Committee unanimously decides to award the IDB Prize in Islamic Economics for the year 1432H to The Islamic Foundation, UK.
The Islamic Foundation is close to both the Pakistani Islamist group known as the Jama’at-e-Islami as well as to the Global Muslim Brotherhood .
With Islamofascist friends like that, don’t you think the schools would serve their communities better if they put the children first, before terrorist tainted filthy lucre?:

TUSD accepts grant from group with ties to Muslim Brotherhood (updated)
By ADI News Services
On May 5, the Qatar Foundation International (QFI), a group associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, announced the awardees of QFI’s Curriculum Grants, which include Tucson Unified School District, according to Tucson radio show host Garret Lewis on KNST AM 790/97.1 FM. QFI’s Curriculum Grants are awarded to schools to develop “innovative curricula and teaching materials to be used in any Arabic language classroom.”
The award will be used in TUSD’s Safford Magnet School. According to the district, “the purpose of this project is for the Arabic teachers with the help of an International Baccalaureate (IB) coordinator to develop, teach, and evaluate four IB Arabic units.”
The district’s grant was brought to the attention of Lewis by a concerned Tucsonan, Pat Sexton. “It is unacceptable to a majority of Tucson citizens that Safford K-8 Magnet School, whose school children are predominantly Hispanic, would agree to receive any funding from a group such as QFI,” said Sexton. “This is an Arabic/Islamist group that seeks to promote Sharia culture and has undeniable ties to two terrorist organizations whose mission is to destroy America, Western ideology and anyone who does not agree with their extremisms.”
QFI is a nonprofit group financed by the government of Qatar. The Washington D.C. based organization is the U.S. branch of the Qatar Foundation, which was founded in 1995 by Qatar’s ruling emir, Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al Thani, according to various news reports. Thani is also the founder of Al Jazeera.
The Qatar foundation launched the Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics in January. The Center’s director Tariq Ramadan. Ramadan is the grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, who was banned from the U.S. until 2010 when the Obama administration issued him a visa to give a lecture at a New York school, according to various news reports cited by Lewis.
The Qatar Foundation has also named several institutions after a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Yusuf al-Qaradawi. Al-Qaradawi has proclaimed himself “Mufti of martyrdom operations.”
While Al-Qaradawi’s claims to promote moderation, “he has openly permitted the killing of American troops in Iraq and praised the “heroic deeds” from “Hamas, Jihad, Al-Aqsa Brigades, and others,” according to the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT).
The London newspaper Al-Sharq Al-Awsat, reported Israeli claims that Al-Qaradawi was funding “the heart of Hamas,” the Al-Islam Charity, through his Welfare Coalition. He has also pledged to fight the United States if it attacked Iran, stating: “When America threatened it [Iran], I said I am against America. Iran has the right to possess peaceful nuclear power, and if America fights it, we would stand up against it [America],” according to IPT. IPT also claims that “Al-Qaradawi is known for advocating the overthrow of Western capitalism.”
Al-Qaradawi is reported to have said, “We have our own economic philosophy and system which others do not have. The collapse of the capitalist system, which is based on usury and securities rather than commodities in markets, shows us that it is undergoing a crisis and that our integrated Islamic philosophy, if properly understood and applied, can replace Western capitalism.”
