Common Core Ties to Libya, Qatar, Saudi Arabia

Apr 20, 2015 by

by Bethany Blankley –

“Where did Common Core come from?” is a question I often hear from parents as I travel the country speaking about the Islamic infiltration of America.

Because in 2014-15 America, public school students via Common Core are:

• Participating in public school-sponsored trips to mosques via taxpayer expense, girls must wear head scarves (Colorado parents complain)

• Debating whether or not the Holocaust was “merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain,” (an eighth-grade assignment defended by the Rialto Unified School District, Los Angeles)

Pledging allegiance in Arabic (New York)

• Observing two “Muslim holy days,” (New York City)

• Being taught Islamic vocabulary lessons (North Carolina)

• Being taught Islamic culture (Tennessee)

• Being taught world history from Islamic perspective (Florida) that includes learning about the five pillars of Islam (Maryland father, a Marine Corps veteran, complains and is banned from school grounds)

• Told to proselytize by creating a pamphlet about Islam to “introduce Islam to 3rd graders” that introduces Allah to children as the same God of the Christians and Jews (Michigan)

Reciting in class the Shahada, “There is No God but Allah,” and the Muslim call to prayer (Massachusetts)

Parents in every state are outraged, protesting and asking, “Why is Islam being taught in public schools?” and “How did this happen?” “Where is the ACLU?” “Where are the people ‘protesting against’ religion being taught in public schools?”

Common Core origins

The short answer is that President Obama’s push for “hope and change” translates into completely transforming America — for the worse. Common Core is but one of many parts of an intricate plan to infiltrate every area of American society with Islam. Which is why, Common Core’s origin and funding came from Qatar, Libya and Saudi Arabia.

Globally, Common Core originated from the “One World Education” concept, a global goal orchestrated by the Connect All Schools program. Its origin is funded by the Qatar Foundation International (QFI). The director of QFI’s Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics is Tariq Ramadan, grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder, Hassan al-Banna.

According to the WND website, in 2011, QFI “partnered with the Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to facilitate matchmaking between classrooms in the U.S. and international schools through … the ‘Connect All Schools’ project.” QFI states on its website that the initiative was founded in response to Mr. Obama’s infamous 2009 Cairo speech, during which the Muslim Brotherhood was seated in the front row.

Mr. Obama’s mentor, domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, received $49.2 million from Vartan Gregorian, a board member of the Qatar Foundation, who also is involved with Mr. Obama’s White House Fellowships Commission. Gregorian is an integral part of Connect All Schools, through which Qatar invested $5 million to teach Arabic in American public schools.

Domestically, in America, Common Core was “created by” the National Governor’s Association (NGA), Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), Achieve Inc., ACT and the College Board. The Common Core State Standards are copyrighted by the NGA and CCSSO, a private company, which means they cannot be changed.

Many groups helped create these standards (chief among them, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the United Nations) but Pearson Education, an NGA donor and CCSSO’s listed business and industry partner, is integral to Common Core.

Pearson Education designs “education products and services to institutions, governments and direct to individual learners.” Listed on the London and New York Stock Exchange, of its numerous investors, the Libyan Investment Authority is its largest financial contributor, holding 26 million shares.

According to the Financial Times, the Libyan Investment Authority was founded by Muammar Gaddafi’s son, Seif al-Islam; more than five Gaddafi family members own shares. The Council on Islamic Relations (CAIR, a recently designated terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates), Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and the Muslim Brotherhood invested in Pearson Education through the Libyan Investment Authority.

Despite this connection, according to the Guardian, Pearson Education claims as a public company operating in a free market it has no control over its shareholders’ terrorist-related activities.

Common Core was implemented in states that accepted federal funds from the 2009 “Race to the Top” initiative, which encouraged states to receive federal money to adopt new standards that would improve their public school children’s test performance results.

In order for a state to participate, the state board of education and the state’s educational professional standards board would have voted to adopt Common Core standards. Each participating state has posted the Common Core Standards on its state department of education website.

Two years prior to the Obama administration’s Race to the Top initiative, in 2007, the FBI uncovered documents revealing the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood, and its subsidiary organizations like CAIR, planned to indoctrinate American K-12 students by teaching Islam.

The seized documents were part of the 2007 Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terror-funding trial in U.S. history. The FBI uncovered the Muslim Brotherhood’s manifesto “on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America” (Exhibit 42945 and Exhibit 42946).

After states applied for “Race to the Top” federal funds in 2009, Pearson Education created Common Core curriculum and standards. Pearson Education is also the sole evaluator of teachers in some states. In order for New York State to continue receiving “Race to the Top” federal funds, it had to implement “reforms.” Pearson Education now solely administers the Teacher Performance Assessment (TPA).

New York State no longer evaluates its teachers — a private company does — whose primary investors fund terrorism and propagate Islam.

Additionally, no state or federal oversight exists for university programs (under Title VI of the Higher Education Act) that train K-12 teachers to develop lesson plans and seminars on “Middle East Studies.” These programs and teacher training materials were developed by Pearson Education and largely funded by Saudi Arabia.

Parents must and can act

In order to end Common Core and eliminate the Islamic indoctrination being taught in public schools, parents must demand:

• Their state school board members be investigated and/or fired and replaced.

• Their state legislature and governor reject “Race to the top” federal funds and implement legislation or reverse its state education department’s implementation of Common Core in their state, and at a minimum, in the interim.

• Their child not participate in state testing.

Parents can also take their children out of public schools altogether.

Parental rights are guaranteed by the 14th Amendment. The U.S. Supreme Court has held that parents possess the “fundamental right” to “direct the upbringing and education of their children.” The court has declared that “the child is not the mere creature of the State: those who nurture him and direct his destiny have the right coupled with the high duty to recognize and prepare him for additional obligations” (Pierce v. Society of Sisters, 268 U.S. 510, 534-35). The Supreme Court criticized the Nebraska state legislature for attempting to interfere “with the power of parents to control the education of their own” (Meyer v. Nebraska, 262 U.S. 390, 402). And ruled a parent’s right to raise his/her children means a parent is protected from unreasonable state interferences, one of the unwritten “liberties” protected by the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment (Meyer v. Nebraska, 262 U.S. 399).”

Parents must say no more: The $632 billion the federal government spends each year on public school “education” is being wasted on violating the First Amendment, by the federal government instituting a religion through the teaching of Islam in public schools.

    Now it is up to the parents to muster the courage to just say NO to the State concerning the Education of their children.

    Common Core Education will destroy America controlling people throughout thier lives. We will be no longer be free as Americans, but controlled by personal agendas by non- Americans.
    How many religious doctrines exist in the world, and someones personal agenda wants us to to be forced to be a Muslim.
    Open your eyes, the easiest minds to twist are children
    Non of Muslim countries want to teach Christianty

    I really wish that all of her facts would have been foot-noted.
    My hope is that you all realized and understand that islam HAS infiltrated all walks and levels of society here in the USofA and Europe. WHY? For the sole purpose of their jihad! What is their jihad? It is to transform ALL the world, in ANY way, to live under their social system/political system called islam!
    Islam is now in ALL levels of our education…to include the text book writing industry!
    Islam is now in ALL levels of our governments…local, state and national!
    Islam is now in our FOOD industry!
    They have done very well at their silent jihad called infiltration and we opened our arms to this because of our political correctness. They USED our tolerance to their advantage to get THEIR ways accepted! They USED our rules and laws AGAINST us to get their ways accepted!
    AND soon there will be more and more and more brought into our country as “refugees”. Remember that they HAVE shown that they will not assimilate into our society…look at ANY moslem enclave here or in Europe and you’ll see!
    Wake up America! Wake up WORLD! Their 1400 year old jihad is alive and well!

      The “infiltration” Linda refers to is called Civilization Jihad. Seems to me by some of the “teacher” comments that they need to research Islam and the three types of jihad, one of which is Civilization. I suggest that the research be conducted outside of Common Core! Just saying…

    I don’t think any of you grasp the implications and the overall goal. America is being Islamized before our very eyes. Our schools are being used to create global citizens who adhere to ISLAM. This evil agenda is about eliminating the INDIVIDUAL !

    I’m not a fan of Common Core. I have no problem with learning about and respecting other cultures. Giving days off when the majority of the school population celebrates it is fine. We live in MS. We get 2 days off for Marti Gras. I found that to be crazy when we moved here. I’m the parent of a 2nd grader. The way lessons are taught are confusing. The words and names used in the textbooks are hard for American children to understand if they haven’t heard them before. There are so many typos on the worksheets that I often don’t know what the questions on the homework are. The illustrations are terrible. Spelling words on the weekly lists are often misspelled. Reading passages often make no sense. Word problems are confusing and complex. New ways of learning are baffling to some of the most highly educated people I know,people who hold advanced degrees. I can see why people believe this is an effective way to indoctrinate our children. Children are being taught in ways that are confusing and that parents don’t understand, so it stands to reason in a child’s mind that the school is right and mom is wrong. “Give me just one generation of youth, and I’ll transform the whole world.” ― Vladimir Leni This is a very scary educational system we have and I want it gone.

      What you are reading is what is written by moslems on any subject as the publishers submit (what the word Islam means) to the idea of a caliphate. You also should google Antipositivity as this is also part of the #LeftIslamicAxis that is being pushed on the kids and ultimately the US. This is not about multiculturalism, when in power Islam allows no other culture but sharia. Be afraid, be very afraid of what CC trained teachers are doing to your kids.

    Seriously? New Your schools do not “observe” Muslim holy days and more than th e observe Christmas. They simply close schools on days when a statistically significant percentage of the students will be absent. I was taught about th e 5 pillars of Islam in high school more than 40 years ago. Only a poorly educated person or one who has chosen ignorance as a way of life would not know the 5 pillars of Islam. Visiting a mosque and wearing a scarf is no different from visiting the Vatican on a field trip and being required to wear sleeves rather th en sleeveless shirts. It is no different from American soldiers being required to stand at attention while the national an th em of another country is playing. It is about learning to respect other traditions and cultures with out necessarily agreeing wi th them. The author clearly does not want American students to be well educated or to be able to debate issues based on knowledge rather than ideology. Why not address the Holocaust in that way? People are claiming that it didn’t happen. Why not look at the evidence? She is clearly not an educator and she loses all credibility on the first few paragraphs.

    All of the specific “lessons” mentioned in the article are not Common Core. Common Core is standards and the actual curriculum (lessons/assignments/etc.) are created at the local district level. Stop attacking the wrong “enemy.” If parents have issues about specific curricular choices, those should rightly be raised at the local level. The example of teaching the 5 pillars of Islam is a poor example of “indoctrination.” If Islam is the enemy, one should know all about one’s enemy in order to effectively destroy it. Ignorance is never the answer. Fortunately Common Core writing standards call for much better research and support for writing an effective argument.

      Local districts do NOT create the curriculum. All aspects of Common Core are copyrighted and cannot be changed. Actually Common Core IS a method of “dumbing down” our children. Have been attending workshops and informational meetings on Common Core for over four years now. I have seen NOTHING good about it.
