Lynn, I found this tonight and am stunned! I'm shocked!! I know you have been saying you don't support Perry for Pres. I confess I don't get to listen every day but have never heard the specifics about why. Is this part of your reasoning? I saw that someone called Perry a 5th Column Candidate. While looking up what all that means I found this!!! at www.grubbyhub.org
Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer and on and on!!! What in the world!!! Even Herman Cain has surrendered to pro-Sharia Islamic supremacists!!
While courting a voter block may be forgivable, what should
concern conservatives are two cooperative agreements that Perry spearheaded
between the state of Texas and Ismaili Nizari organizations in 2008 and 2009.
The first agreement in 2008 was a “wide-ranging”
program designed to indoctrinate Texas children about Islam and Islamic
culture. According to Salon.com, “Perry brokered a partnership between the
University of Texas and Al-Husayni’s Aga Khan University in Pakistan for the
purpose of expanding cooperation on programs including the Muslim Histories and
Culture Project,” or MHCP. The purpose of the MHCP is to train high-school
teachers on the positive aspects of Muslim history and culture.
Perry’s naive support for this program is disturbing, to say
the least. At the signing ceremony, Perry stated, “I have supported this
program from the very beginning, because we must bridge the gap of
understanding between East and West if we ever hope to experience a future of
peace and prosperity.”
In conjunction with the signing, Perry even requested the
Texas A&M Aggie Corps of Cadets Ross Volunteer Company to do a sabre arch
salute as part of a special ceremony for Al-Husayni arrival at the ceremony!!!!
A sabre arch the likes of those in Iraq??? I am sick!!
The glaring problem of course with this sentiment is that
“bridges” normally go two ways. While Perry is expanding programs to
teach American children about Islam, what is Al-Husayni doing about teaching
Pakistani children about the glories of Christianity? Why is it that whenever
these fabulously wealthy Muslim “philanthropists” ride into town to
build bridges of understanding, it is always one-sided, always extolling the
beauties of Islam?
The fact that Perry didn’t see right through, and even
supported, this facade does not speak well to his ability to lead this nation
forward. [WorldNetDaily, 8/14/11] Part of column by Joel Richardson.
