TUSD sells out for $465,000: Group tied to Muslim Brotherhood

“The main issue is what we can do with the money,” says dense TUSD board member Mark Stegeman

The Daily Caller reports on an astonishing occurrence taking place in Tucson. The governing board of the Tucson Unified School District requested that the school board accept a $465,000 curriculum grant from the Qatar Foundation International, a global organization with strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of the terrorist group Hamas.

The grant money is intended to implement “innovative curricula and teaching materials to be used in any Arabic language classroom,” according to this report in the Arizona Daily Independent.

Two Tucson schools, Safford K-8 Magnet School and Cholla High Magnet School, will be the recipients of the terror-infested cash, according to Tucson News Now. About 100 students at Cholla High Magnet School are learning Arabic. At Safford K-8 Magnet School, 125 students are learning the language. Last year’s grant for Arabic language from the Qatar Foundation was $55,000.

In 2012, the Qatar Foundation launched the Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics in Qatar. The Center’s director is Tariq Ramadan, a prominent Sunni Muslim and the grandson of Hassan al-Banna, founder of the Muslim Brotherhood. Ramadan had been banned from the United States for several years because he allegedly contributed money to a terror-connected charity, reports The New York Times. Nevertheless, in 2010 the Obama administration allowed him to apply for a visa so that he could speak on a panel at Cooper Union in Manhattan.

The Qatar Foundation is also closely associated with Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, an outspoken advocate of the Muslim Brotherhood.

“I support Hamas, the Islamic Jihad, and Hezbollah,” al-Qaradawi said in 2007. “I oppose the peace that Israel and America wish to dictate. This peace is an illusion. I support martyrdom operations” (ie: “suicide bombers”). In 2008, al-Qaradawi gave a speech in Doha, the capital of petroleum-rich Qatar, heralding “the collapse of the capitalist system, which is based on usury and securities rather than commodities in markets,” according to Islamweb. “Our integrated Islamic philosophy, if properly understood and applied, can replace the Western capitalism,” he proclaimed.

    What an outrage!! But I long ago stopped expecting rational thought from the group of radicals who control the Tucson Unified School District. I recall all too well the way the conducted themselves with the so called Ethnic Studies (actually LaRaza based “Reconquista”/Reconquer) programs, teaching Hispanic students that America’s southwestern states belong to Mexico and were taken by tyrannical Americans. The Marxist-supporting instructors were obsessed with the idea that the United States is a land of racism and oppression.
    The students were told they needn’t acclimate or learn American History or English because Mexico will ultimately own us. Why wouldn’t they subsequently align themselves with the American-hating, desirous of worldwide Islamic domination Muslim Brotherhood?
    THIS is the truth about LaRaza:
    THIS is what those in control of TUSD support:

    Tucson Unified School District has sold it’s soul to the globalized Islamic takeover for a buck….465,000 of them!

    My questions are, Where are the parents? Are they connected enough to care about the insidious roots of this program? How is this being sold to them? Do they “get it”?

    According to Ignacio Ruiz who is TUSD’s Director of ‘Language Acquisition,’ “This grant allows us to increase our students’ choices of world languages available for study. “We are building world language capacity to create post-high school opportunities for our graduates.”

    Ruiz shouldn’t worry about American students learning Arabic. The Muslim Brotherhood will see to the fact that it will be implemented and that all the girls will ultimately wear burqas and the boys will grown up to slaughter non-believers. It’s Shira law. Are the kids in TUSD getting a dose of that as well?

    WHAT???? Are these Tucson people crazy, this easily bought or smoking something stronger than Marlboros??

      They are liberal extremists. That means at least the first two on your list apply.

    “Mandatory Arabic”

    “Some Students at Mansfield ISD schools could soon be learning Arabic as a required language. The school district wants students at select schools to take Arabic language and culture classes as part of a federally funded grant.”

    “The Foreign Language Assistance Program (FLAP) grant was awarded to Mansfield ISD last summer by the U.S. Department of Education. As part of the five-year $1.3 million grant, Arabic classes would be mandatory at Cross Timbers Intermediate School and Kenneth Davis Elementary School.”

    Fox News reports that the same school system previously mandated the teaching of Spanish:

    “Mandatory School Spanish Classes Anger Texas Parents”

    “A Texas school district is reviewing its second-language requirement after concerns over students being forced to learn Spanish, according to reports.”

    “Some parents at Timberline Elementary School in Grapevine, Texas, are outraged their children have to take Spanish as a mandatory second-language requirement, MyFOXDFW.com reported.”

    How about mandatory Chinese?

    “Georgia School District Hopes Mandatory Mandarin Classes Can Boost Graduation Rate”

    “A Georgia county looks to the world’s second-largest economy to fix its education system”

    “By Patrick Boehler, Oct. 02, 2012”

    “Macon, Georgia, nestled in the heart of the Peach State, is located a world away from China. But now, the 7,000 miles that separate Macon and Beijing are being nullified thanks to a new initiative by the Georgia town’s school district, which is trying to get its ailing public-school system in order: making Chinese language classes mandatory.”

    Are you getting the picture? Mandate that American students learn the language of the illegal alien invaders. Mandate that they learn the language of Islam. Mandate that they learn the language of the largest Communist country in the world.

    Through the mandatory teaching of foreign languages, the “New World Order” elites seek to undermine our national identity, our Judeo-Christian identity and the language of Capitalism!

    Does the Qatar Foundation just randomly contact these schools or are they “invited” in by school districts like TUSD. I smell a RAT! Can the Superintendent of Education in Arizona intervene in district affairs? We have become so jaded over the past few years the complacency of the people is overpowering.

  7. Army Of One says:

    In 2010 in her previous role as Obama’s Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton lifted the ban barring a visa for Tariq Ramadan, a key Sunni Muslim operative and the grandson of Hassan al-Banna, who founded the Muslim Brotherhood. Ramadan had been banned from the United States because he was linked to funding a terror-connected group. That apparently is of small consequence to Obama and his Muslim-loving handmaiden Hillary.
    Here it is….as reported in the NYTimes:

    Humm, if this money came from a Christian organization the atheists and many, many others would be screaming at the top of their lungs. But $$ from terrorists no big deal.

    This goes hand in hand with the radicalization of Egypt and the game plan of Islam in general–take over your enemies schools. Check out an informative piece at http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2013/July/America-to-Become-Brotherhoods-Fifth-Column/

    To some degree, you can understand a liberal state like Michigan being overrun by these throwbacks, but ask yourself why is Arizona considered a viable target?

  10. Thucydides says:

    Any evidence that the language class is mandatory? Any evidence they are propagating Islam in the class? If we are going to defeat Islamic culture we better have some people that know it.

    Let us not forget that one of the owners of News Corp/Fox News is Saudi Arabian Billionaire, Prince Al Waleed bib Talal, the same guy that is financing the “ground zero Mosque” in New York City.
