At Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins, Colorado, earlier this year a member of their “Cultural Arms Club” led the entire student body in an Arabic version of our Pledge of Allegiance, replacing the words “under God” with “under Allah.”
Principal Tom Lopez has come under fire for ´pushing an Islamic agenda´, which he denies, stating the move was to “destroy the barriers, embrace the cultures” that exist within the school.
Representative Ibrahim Hooper from CAIR, a Muslim Brotherhood front group, told Fox News the storm of controversy was ´racist´ in nature:
“How on earth is it un-American to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in another language,” Hooper asked. “It doesn’t make sense unless the people complaining are anti-Muslim or anti-middle eastern bigots.”
How predicatable, playing the race card.
If your true agenda is to educate people to other cultures, why not do it in a way that wouldn´t be so obviously offensive?
I wonder if Mr. Hooper would be in favor of Arab League members reciting something along the lines of ´one Arab League under Jesus´ at their next Arab League Summit. You know, to promote cultural tolerance of Christianity.
