Operation Trojan Horse was an effort to slowly introduce elements of Islam into the schools through curricular modifications. The Park View Educational Trust which runs six public schools in Birmingham, UK (chaired by Tahir Alam), wrote a 72 page PDF document detailing a plan for the "Islamisation" of secular state school through the introduction of religious classes. 21 schools in Birmingham were victims of an organized campaign by Islamists, which aimed to marginalize and force out existing head teachers for their position, and replace them with Muslims.Policies
that were in some cases included were:
• Anti-Western rhetoric, particularly anti-US and anti-Israel;
• Segregationism – dividing the world into us and them, with them to include all non-Muslims and other Muslims who disagree;
• Perception of a worldwide conspiracy against Muslims;
• Attempts to impose its views and practices upon others;
• Intolerance of difference, whether the secular, other religions or other Muslims.
The two chief organizations behind this initiative were the Muslim Council of Britain, and the Association of Muslim Schools. These are not fringe organizations, but arguably two of the more mainstream avenues for Muslim discourse in the Western world. In the Vision & Aims Statement of AMS
, it states, "our vision is to provide high quality services and support for the development of excellence in Muslim schools; nurturing love of knowledge, continuous pursuit of taqwa (God consciousness) and Ihsan (excellence) in all spheres of life for learners and educators." I don't think anyone would take issue with this. Muslim schools in the West are entitled to teach whatever Islamic lessons they so desire. But it becomes problematic when the primary support organization for Muslim schools in the West is directly involved with a 20-year long initiative to spread segregation, Shariah philosophy, and anti-West rhetoric to secular public schools.
The Muslim Council of Britain was the organization that was perhaps more involved than AMS in this conspiracy. According to their "About MCB"
page, they are, "pledged to work for the common good of society as a whole; encouraging individual Muslims and Muslim organisations to play a full and participatory role in public life." It is a noble purpose. Many of us would be willing to support their initiatives, if not for the fact that they were covertly plotting an internal take over of various school districts in multiple UK cities.
Many Muslims have achieved very prominent positions in government and education in the UK, for example, based on this list of Councillors
in Birmingham, UK. Scan through those names, and count how many Muslims you see on there. Tahir Alam was the head of the hierarchy in Birmingham. The entire board of trustees at the school were dominated by Muslims. Upon light of this Trojan Horse scheme, Alam and his entire board of trustees resigned. The way things are at the moment, things are under blind eyes, largely because people are afraid of being perceived as racist.
Perhaps the worst part is that many of these plans were indeed put into action.
Posters were found in the classrooms encouraging children to begin lessons with a Muslim prayer, one saying: “If you do not pray, you are worse than a kafir”, and staff reported that loudspeakers were set up in the school to broadcast a call to prayer
Children were taught that all Christians are liars and attempts were made to introduce Sharia law in classrooms. Schools put up posters warning children that if they didn't pray they would "go to hell", Christmas was cancelled and girls were taught that women who refused to have sex with their husbands would be "punished" by angels "from dusk to dawn". Another teacher told the children that were "lucky to be Muslims and not ignorant like Christians and Jews
In the elementary/primary schools, it was found that pupils had limited knowledge of any religion apart from Islam
. Subjects such as Personal, Social and Health Education, Biology and Sex and Relationships Education were bowdlerised to conform with a conservative Islamic teaching. A former staff member said that one teacher had handed out a worksheet stating that women “must obey their husbands,” and told his class that wives were forbidden from refusing their husbands sex
Keep in mind that the MCB (one of the most prominent avenues for communication of Islam in Great Britain), is the one responsible for this. Check out their YouTube video
- it portrays itself as very peaceful and welcoming. This is why I express concern.
