Title: Rick Perry's ties to Islam?
Post by: Psalm 51:17 on August 15, 2011, 10:16:57 pm


Sounds good. But Perry has been sucked into the propaganda vortex, and is now wielding his enormous power to influence changes in the schoolrooms and in the curricula to reflect a sharia compliant version of Islam.  He is a friend of the Aga Khan, the multimillionaire head of the Ismailis, a Shi'ite sect of Islam that today proclaims its nonviolence but in ages past was the sect that gave rise to the AssassinsPerry has concluded at least two cooperation agreements between the state of Texas and the Ismailis, including a comprehensive program to feed children in Texas public schools and taqiyya nonsense about how Islam is a religion of peaceAnother agreement stipulates that Texas officials will work with the Ismailis in the "fields of education, health sciences, natural disaster preparedness and recovery, culture and the environment." Perry let on that this was all about whitewashing Islam's bloody historical and modern-day record: "traditional Western education speaks little of the influence of Muslim scientists, scholars, throughout history, and for that matter the cultural treasures that stand today in testament to their wisdom."

It gets worse. Last March, Perry gave a speech in Dallas in the company of Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform. Norquist was close to George W. Bush, and Perry's anti-tax, anti-Big Government rhetoric sounds like it's right out of Norquist's playbook.  But there is a dark side to Norquist as well: Norquist's ties to Islamic supremacists and jihadists have been known for years.  He and his Palestinian wife, Samah Alrayyes -- who was director of communications for his Islamic Free Market Institute until they married in 2005 -- are very active in "Muslim outreach." Six weeks after 9/11, The New Republic ran an exposť explaining how Norquist arranged for George W. Bush to meet with fifteen Islamic supremacists at the White House on September 26, 2001 -- to show how Muslims rejected terrorism.

Perry 'instrumental' force behind program on Islam

An author and outspoken critic of Islam is accusing Texas Governor Rick Perry of endorsing the work of an Islamic group that helped produce a curriculum for the Texas public schools.

Various news sources have reported Perry's connection to the Aga Khan, the Imam of the Ismaili sect of Shia Islam. Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch says with the enthusiastic support of Perry in 2004, the Aga Khan Foundation along with the University of Texas created what became known as Muslim Histories and Cultures (MHC) curriculum, which is reportedly still being taught in some Texas public schools. (See details from Jihad Watch)
"The curriculum is a complete whitewash and it's got the endorsement of Perry," says Spencer. "It's not going to give you any idea why people are waging jihad against the West -- it's only going to make you think that the real problem is 'Islamophobia.'"
According to Spencer, the Perry camp is not happy with his reports. "Never have I seen the furious reaction to anything that I've written," he shares with OneNewsNow. "I've criticized all sorts of candidates -- I criticized Bush, I criticized Obama, Romney -- and never have I seen this kind of reaction except from the Perry camp in the most furious terms."
Spencer says he does not think it would be too much to ask for Governor Perry to make some kind of public statement that he understands the jihad threat.
The Round Rock (Texas) Independent School District, in a promotional flyer for its "Muslim Histories and Cultures Project 2010," said the MHC program grew out of discussions in 2002 between the Aga Khan and Governor Perry, who agreed on the need for Texans to have "a greater understanding of Islamic culture." The program, according to that flyer, involved the recruiting and training of 80 teachers and affected more than 15,000 students in ten key Texas districts from 2005-2006.
