Newsletter #28 – TN American Muslim Advisory Council trains at TN Department of Children’s ServicesPosted: July 10, 2012
Governor Haslam brings Shariah to the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services
That makes 3 so far….
Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security
in partnership with the TN American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) to help train law enforcement and safety personnel
Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development
appointment of Shariah Compliant Finance Specialist, Samar Ali, as International Director
Tennessee Department of Children’s Services
AMAC invited by the Department to provide training
If you still have any doubt about the direction Governor Haslam is taking Tennessee, consider the attachment. AMAC spoke to the TN Dept of Children’s services in May
Newsletter #15 presented parts of the presentation that the AMAC made during a training for law enforcement and safety personnel sponsored in part by the TN Department of Homeland Security. The AMAC’s message had an interesting duality; on the one hand, they asserted cultural and religious differences which demand special and separate treatment from public and private entities, and on the other hand, they asserted that they are no different than any other American in terms of their values and the ideals to which they ascribe.
Assertions of this nature reflect precisely the platform of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the leading global proponent of Shariah law. Insisting that Muslims would be violating Islamic law, they could not sign onto the Universal Declaration of Human Rights because it was fashioned on Western values (ie, Judeo-Christian)? This necessitated adopting (in 1990), the separate Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam, which is based on Shariah. Does that mean that “universal” means “separate but equal”?
As Governor Haslam continues to raise the profile and elevate the political status of Islamists in Tennessee, consider what this will mean when he pushes for school vouchers (aka “Equal Opportunity Scholarships”) when the Tennessee General Assembly reconvenes in 2013.
The AMAC says that among other things, it promotes religious freedom which is why they recently spoke out in support of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro. The Governor has already added a representative from the Catholic Dioceses to the school voucher task force; expect that the AMAC will also want Tennessee’s Islamic schools to get their share of public money.
And so far, Governor Haslam has met all of their demands.
