There is no happy face diversity sticker big enough to cover what could go wrong here. We are witnessing the continued assault against American Nationalism in our country amid a raging fire and smoke background. HISD is accepting grants from the federal government for 12 million for magnet schools teaching STEM and language immersion. The top down educational agenda will enter our schools through such carrots all to ensure a “workforce ready” and internationalist new generation. The New Americans will replace the host population. Stripping American children of a cohesive national identity. This is very sad. The Middle East, home to the Arabic tongue is overrun with Christian carnage and blood runs in rivers all in the name of Islam. Many Americans are as yet unaware of the nature of Islamic infiltration that was laid out in a document obtained in a Swiss villa during an FBI raid over a decade ago (The Project: http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/687.pdf). The document meticulously outlines the plan for infiltrating Western civilizations through cultural exchanges and civic institutions. Islam does not adapt it demands conformity. Since these young children will be placed in a school likely to hire native Arabic speakers, what plans does HISD have to vet the instructors? One of the London tube bombers was a beloved member of his community and was a teaching assistant in a London school. Ft. Hood shooter Nidal Hasan was a U.S. Army psychiatrist who killed 13 people and injured many more. Are we supposed to believe HISD is sharp enough to vet for Jihad tendencies?
I am totally against Sharia law “invading” the United States of America. How many third world immigrants can a nation absorb until that nation ceases to be what it once was? We do not owe Muslims our country. The citizens of the United States need to act now to stem the tide of Sharia law, or our culture and sacred traditions we hold dear will no longer exist. Muslims by the plane loads are entering our country. Sharia law’s intent is to elevate itself above all non-Muslims. Sharia law does not respect the laws of the host country they immigrate to. Sharia law allows the beating of women with impunity, polygamy, and pedophilia, the killing of apostates, gays, and adulterers. These beliefs run contrary to the laws of the United States where life, liberty and property are held in sacred regard. We must not allow Muslims to open up their private schools to indoctrinate (brain wash) children into the teachings of Sharia law, and supplanting the United States traditions with their own.
When will the HISD parents wake up? There are schools within two miles of this Arabic school that need basic supplies, general cleaning, yard work, library books, playground equipment, art teachers, instruments, music teachers, computers, extra teacher’s aides and more. Learning Arabic is nice but not essential to success. Knowing math procedures, English vocabulary, grammar and how to write an essay is essential. Kids are not learning to write in cursive but now Arabic? The school board seems asleep at the wheel. The money just goes poof at HISD. It’s not their money.
If this program is so popular, why wasn’t it created by a private entity? Not only am I against spending hard earned tax dollars on this program but I am also offended that HISD would even consider funding such an unAmerican facility. How many tax payer funded English immersion schools are there in the Middle East?
This nation does not “owe” to foreigners any compromise of our morals, standards or Christian beliefs or way of life. How dare they try to come over and attempt infiltrate our society with their beliefs! Have they or their families or ancestors died to establish and free this nation? NO! The only way they may proceed with their attempts is if America stays asleep and does not react aggressively towards this. Wake up, America!!! Sound your voice!
Please ignore the ignorant, hateful, comments above by others who call themselves American but forget what real Americans and Proud Texans stand for: diverse cultures and beliefs who live harmoniously. Any additional language skills and cultural awareness is a gain for all of us, especially those who unfortunately don’t know any better! Thank you HISD for all the dual language programs!!
Very proud of HISD for this incredible and unique opportunity for our students and community. Kudos to Kate Adams for recognizing not just the value of this endeavor, but the need and stepping up to fulfill it.
Mattress stores utilize areas with low rent, high visibility
I enjoy reading [Jonathan McElvy’s] articles in the Leader. Your articles are fun to read, with interesting facts and information. I especially enjoy reading the article on Mattresses with a number of stores with low rent and high visibility. Thanks to you and your wife on enlightening us on mattresses, grocery stores, and coffee shops. In the past we would see dry cleaners around the corner.
I just read [Jonathan McElvy’s] mattress article. The mattress store in the Heights that more people should know about is New Living Bedroom on 19th street. Organic mattresses made in the US without the use of chemicals.
The mattresses in the chain stores are flame retardant-laced and made in China, for the most part.
