This from http://www.dawanet.com/methods/publicschool.dawapublic.asp:
"Dawa means to invite non-Muslims to accept the truth of Islam. Performing Dawa involves both our words and actions.... Students are routinely exposed in their classroom to new information and opinions, hence they tend to be more receptive to new beliefs and ideas.
Schools are therefore fertile grounds where the seeds of Islam can be sowed inside the hearts of non-Muslim students. Muslim students should take ample advantage of this opportunity and present to their schoolmates the beautiful beliefs of Islam."
Particularly disturbing is the last section: "We should use every opportunity to sensitize non-Muslim peers and school staff to Islam and to establish an environment in which everywhere a non-Muslim turns, he notices Islam portrayed in a positive way, is influenced by it and eventually accepts Islam with Allah's guidance, Insha Allah (if God wills)."
The site explains the various methods which can be employed. Interested readers might want to visit the October 20, 2004 posting on this blog to see just how far matters have gone in the Fairfax County Public Schools. The curriculum may indicate that children are learning about multiculturalism when the reality is that the students are being encouraged to accept the tenets of Islam.
Is learning about other cultures a bad thing? No, provided the portrayal of such cultures is balanced. Dawa.net, however, advocates subtly persuading our children to accept particular religious doctrines.
Fairfax County parents--indeed, all concerned citizens--should review what children are learning in school, not only in the classroom but also in student-to-student communications and during school-sponsored activities. Religious indoctrination should not be occurring on the grounds of our public schools.
