Always with the demands. You would think that if they wanted to have Islam have much greater prominence in their lives, that they would choose to live in Muslim countries but no, instead they’re more interested in coming to our countries and demanding that we make them more like the countries they originally came from.
A leading imam has said he is “disappointed” at the Catholic Church’s rejection of a world religions curriculum for primary schools – a move he feared could encourage radicalism among young Muslims.
Would Muslim run schools teach a curriculum that included lessons about other religions? I seriously doubt they would from looking at how non-Muslim religions are treated in Muslim majority countries. So why should the schools which are run by the Catholic Church in a country which has historically been majority Catholic do so? I’m not here to defend the Catholic Church which quite frankly, is an organisation I don’t particularly care for, but in a conflict between Islam and the Catholic Church, I’ll take them any day.
Also, why is he suggesting that young Muslims might become radicalised if their religion isn’t taught in schools? Isn’t it strange how there’s this fear that young Muslims might get radicalised, unless we teach classes about their belief system, but nobody ever seems to worry about the possibility of members of other minority religions becoming radicalised. It almost makes me think that perhaps Islam is different from other religions somehow.
Shaykh Dr Umar Al-Qadri, chairman of the Irish Muslim Peace and Integration Council, made his comments after it was reported by the Irish Independent that plans by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) to introduce a new curriculum on religion had been blocked by figures in the Church concerned about children receiving mixed messages.
Makes sense. Why should Irish children be confused with a mixed message in order to accommodate the needs of an alien group who voluntarily chose to come here? If they don’t like how Ireland does things, then they’re quite free to fuck off back to wherever they came from. We will not change our ways to accommodate the demands of an alien group who should be thankful just for the opportunity to live in our country.
Dr Al-Qadri warned that integration of Ireland’s Muslims was vital to avoid their potential radicalisation, and suggested visits to mosques, temples and churches as well as school visits from rabbis, imams and priests during which children could put questions to them.
Still doesn’t answer the obvious question from before. Why is there no worry about young members of other religions besides Islam becoming radicalised?
He said that in “a handful” of places in Ireland, Muslims espoused the intolerant views that would, for example, instruct Muslims not to befriend non-Muslims. “That is the beginning of radicalisation,” he told the Irish Independent.
Why did we allow people like this into our country? We had no legal obligation, no moral obligation, and there is no tangible benefits to having them here. What was the point in doing this? We already had the example set in countries like England, France, Belgium, and Sweden as to what would inevitably happen. Why did we think Ireland would be any different?
Dr Al-Qadri was critical of the current educational provision, where pupils in Muslim schools are not regularly taught about other faiths, and Muslim children in State schools are separated from others for religious education, because he said these practices led to their “isolation from a young age”.
You know where they wouldn’t feel isolated? In Muslim majority countries, among other Muslims with a belief system similar to their own.
Explaining his disagreement with the bishops’ position, he said that while denominational schools had a right to teach their faith from their perspective, he believed there would be many benefits to adding “a standard curriculum taught in all schools that reflected the diversity” of contemporary Ireland, and that this “should try to develop acceptance, tolerance and understanding of other faiths in the child”.
There’s that horrible “d” word again, the thing we’re supposed to pretend is a strength, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
We didn’t ask for this diversity. It hasn’t benefited any country that it has been forced upon. All it has done is led to more and more conflict and division. It’s not as if this diversity is the result of a natural progression. There was one homogenous group living in Ireland, other groups were brought in, without consulting those of us already living here, and then we’re told that we need to change things in order to be more “accepting” and “tolerant” of these other groups. Why should we?
“I don’t know what the bishops were thinking,” he said.
They were putting their own group interests first and foremost, exactly like what you and your people do when you try to change things about your host societies.
Dr Al-Qadri said it was vital that children and young people saw how the Bible and Islamic scriptures promote respect and understanding to one another.
So much respect and understanding…
“We’re not trying to convert anybody, we’re just trying to create understanding
Yes, and I’m sure the same thing was said in every other country your people have tried this trick in.
. . . I want non-Muslim children to learn that Islamic scriptures teach tolerance; there’s so much misconception about Islam,” he said.
See the “Black Pigeon Speaks” video above, or look at the information below to see that, no, there is no misconception.
