Children should recite Muslim greeting after “O Canada”: Toronto school board

David MenziesMission Specialist


It’s Islamic Heritage Month, and the publicly-funded Toronto District School Board has a "resource guidebook" for kids, teachers, and school administrators.

The guidebook even defines "Islamophobia," and notes that it encompasses hatred or dislike for "Islamic politics or culture."

Criticizing Islamic politics, in the eyes of the TDSB, is Islamophobic!

Would the TDSB really think it Islamophobic to criticize women's or LGBT-rights in Iran or Saudi Arabia? Wouldn't those fall under politics and culture?

Thankfully, the Jewish advocacy group B’nai Brith raised the alarm over this dingbat definition of Islamophobia.

There are many disturbing elements about the TDSB’s Islamic Heritage Month program, such as the recommendation that the Muslim greeting “As-salamu alaykum” be recited after the singing of "O Canada," and having kids go on field trips to local mosques to familiarize them with Islamic culture.

I hope they won’t be bused off to those GTA mosques where the imams preached death to Jews and other non-believers.

No school field trip to any church. No prayer rooms in schools. No religion in public schools period. It had been decided, why does Islam get to come in and change the rules?
Sing our national anthem to start out the day, like when I was a kid, to remind us we must stand tall for our country and our western values. ( it is why people come here after all)
Islam can take a flying leap. If I wanted to live under Islamic rule I would have moved to any number of countries where that is the case. They do not appreciate the freedoms and opportunities Canada has to offer. If they did they wouldn’t be demanding these accommodations. It is proven over and over, more brazenly every time they make a new demand. Our governments at all levels seem all too willing to bend over backwards to appease Islam ABOVE EVERYONE ELSE. Why is that? Why are we expected to accept a foreign political totalitarian ideology that hides behind religion, in Canada?
None of this can stand. Whose palms are being greased? By whom and from where exactly?

How about a field trip to a Catholic Church, or to a Synagogue, or to a protestant church ?

Home schooling is looking better and better.

Yup. Which is why all the lefties want to shut it down under false pretences. The real reason is that they will not have access to your kids to brainwash them.

Indeed Al Peterson. How does Islam get away with this infiltration of our foundational institutions? It uses our own laws to do it. We have freedom of religion laws in this country which aside from favouring Islam over others, is discounting the fact that Islam is a political construct hiding behind a cloak of religion. Stating that criticizing Islamic politics is Islamophobic is admitting that Islam is a political construct. They have just admitted that they are demanding we accept a foreign political system aside/in place of Canada’s.
Thanks TDSB. They had to take that part out and did, but now it is out there. They said it. They expected us to accept another political system in Canada, by admitting Islam is political, and suggesting it should be against the law to criticize Islam’s political policies.
I have never thought Islam should be protected under Canada’s religion laws because it sets itself apart from other religions due to its political identity, which it isn’t about to shed any time soon. That is something to think about.

Interesting how the guide says that you cannot criticize “Islamic politics”. Does this not support the view that Islam is a political movement rather than a religion? Christianity does not have an identifiable “politics”. Certainly Christian have political views but they are all over the spectrum and some like the conservative Mennonites do not vote at all. No one political position can be said to be Christian. But even the TDSB sees Islam as political.

There is a message and a warning here for those who are willing to see it.

Do you suppose the parents are typing away furiously instead of doing something constructive?

I thought the left wanted religion out of schools? And how many lefties have spouted off to keep your religion to yourself? HYPOCRITES!!!

LIZA ROSIE commented, “Islam uses our neo Marxists to promote Islam and the neo Marxists use Islam to promote globalist agenda. The time will come when they will clash. I wonder who will be the victor?”
In Tommy Robinson’s recent video about the protest march in London, noteworthy an Iranian refugee saying that the Marxists and Islamists worked together in Iran.

Should have said putting their kids in Private Schools.

Parents in Southern Ontario arn’t as blind as we think. They are putting their kids in Public Schools, where this Government School System can’t spread the disease so easily.
commented 2017-10-09 23:55:46 -0400
It’s clear that we shouldn’t have gov-run schools. They write a law that says the kids MUST go, then abuse their authority to indoctrinate our kids into things we don’t agree with. Public schooling must end, starting with the right to home-school.

Message to bureaus of Multicult-uralism across Canada:
Canada is and always has been a Christian and Native-based society. This is a fact. This is a historical fact. All the laws and sermonizing by zealots like our present Prime Minister with his ‘post-national’ rhetoric (whatever that means) will not change this historical fact.

If we can survive 2 more years of this clusterfvck Trudeau and his fanatical regime, we will need to do a hard 180 and get back to our British, French and European roots, and fast.

We will not allow Canada to become an Eastern country.

@ Robert Raymond,
Can we have the South American cane toad instead of the islam cult? Way less poisonous if you ask me.

The definition that fits ‘Islamophobe’ best, is “An unbeliever who knows too much about Islam" Thanks, Victor Laszlo

If there’s any Christian parents of school kids left in Toronto they should join forces and fight back at the same game. Absolutely insist on Christian Heratage month and bring back the Lord’s Prayer. Somehow I think just a resurge in Christianity coming back into the school system might just put a damper on this sort of thing rather than accommodating Christianity.

Back in the mid thirties, the Australian government introduced the south American cane toad to control cane beetles that destroyed their sugar cane crops.
Today, the cane toad is wreaking havoc in Australia as millions of poisonous cane toads invade the Australian countryside.
In Canada, our government is introducing a foreign species to eradicate the unwanted Judeo Christian culture.
The question is, what will happen to this country once the islanimals have finally eradicated this unwanted culture?
Only time will tell, but I’ll bet dollars to doughnuts that they will turn on their hosts.
Time to take a stand!

I don’t understand this at all.
When do we celebrate indigenous heritage month?
How about French heritage month?
How about Scottish heritage month?
How about Italian, Greek, Russian, Cuban, Romanian, Irish, welsh, British or any other cultural heritage month?
No go for those. But for the islanimals, we need to celebrate thier heritage. They have no heritage!
They destroy everything they come in contact with.
We should rename the islanimal heritage month the month of evil, but then they already have Ramadan.

They hate growth and advancement of individuals who can break through the limits that they have set in the past and are going ape shit crazy to enforce in the present..

“Don’t underestimate the power of truth. There is nothing more powerful. Now in order to speak what you might regard as the truth you have to let go of the outcome.”

“Nothing brings about a better world than the stated truth. Now you might have to pay a price for that.”

So, when will there be a Jewish, Seike, Druid, Atheist, and Buddhist history month with an associated handbook/resource book?

Oh dear, will that mean that Muslim children will be schlepped to the temples and religious houses of other faiths? Will the children have to listen to Atheists telling children that there is no god and that it is all a scam? Will Muslims have to sing Ha Tikva after Oh Canada, too?

Hey, fair is fair.

Home schooling is looking better and better.

So the young children of a gay marriage or relationship will be invoking respect for a supposed religion that advocates throwing their parents off rooftops.
Oh what a confused world the leftists have planned for us.
