Houston Area School Board Reconsiders Policy Following CAIR School Presentation


The Associated Press has reported on a school district near Houston which will reconsider its policies after allowing the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) to put on a presentation for Junior High School students. According to the report:

A school district near Houston may tighten its policies on religious assemblies after an Islamic presentation angered many parents. Nearly 900 seventh- and eighth-graders at Friendswood Junior High last month attended an assembly on Islamic culture. The Council on American-Islamic Relations put on the presentation. Parents weren’t notified beforehand, which was a violation of school policy. Since then, some parents, talk radio hosts and Christian clergy have criticized the presentation. The school board is scheduled to vote next month on a policy change that would only allow teachers to address religious topics in the future. The Islamic assembly came after a Muslim student was stuffed into a trash can at school.

CAIR is a part of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood that grew out of an earlier organization known as the Islamic Association of Palestine. The organization has a long history of fundamentalism, anti-Semitism, and support for terrorism.
