San Diego public schools will create ‘safe spaces’ for Muslims while forcing non-Muslim students to learn about Islam

Apr 11, 2017 by

The photo speaks volumes. Look at the useful idiot girls holding hands while ALL Muslim men pray. Not one girl yelled, “where are the women?”

Jewish students are the most bullied, but there are no safe places or Judaism lessons in public school. Or for Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, etc. This is part of the escalation of the islamization of the workplace.

It is telling that the public school district is working with a designated terrorist group, CAIR.

This is nothing short short of surrender to an brutal, invading ideology.

San Diego Unified to fight Islamophobia, bullying

Gary Warth, San Diego Union Tribune, April 7, 2017 (thanks to BNI):

Community groups, parents, stake-holders and others outside the district also will be involved in the plan, Anjan said.

The roots of the plan date to November 2015, with the school board recognized the educational work of the Council for American-Islamic Relations, the largest American Muslim civil rights advocacy group in the country.

A report released by CAIR that year found 55 percent of American Muslim students surveyed in California said they were bullied because on their religion, which was twice as high as the national statistic of students reporting being bullied at school.

The report didn’t specify how many incidents were local, but the 165 students from San Diego County represented the largest group that participated in the survey.

Last July, the board directed the district staff to work with CAIR in developing a plan to address the issue.

Looking back to November 2015, Superintendent Cindy Marten said Tuesday that the issue of Islamophobia is even more important today.

The district doesn’t have data on how many students are Muslim, but Anjan’s report to the board Tuesday included a breakdown of incidents of bullying for various reasons from July 1 to Dec. 31, 2016.

The report showed seven bullying incidents because of religion, although it did not specific the faith. There were 36 reports were bullying because of race, the largest category, followed by 21 for sex, 11 for LGBTQ identity and seven for disabilities.

Following a presidential campaign season that saw now-President Donald Trump calling for a ban on Muslim immigrants, there have been anecdotal reports nationwide of confrontations and sometimes violent incidents against Muslims.

“There’s a sense of urgency around this work, especially post-election,” Anjan said.

Counselors and teachers in schools and colleges throughout the county have said Muslim students are feeling anxious these days, but Anjan said he’s also seen more students wanting to work to create more peaceful campuses.

“We’ve had students say they want to be leaders around equality issues,” he said.

Trustees were enthusiastic about moving ahead with the plan.

“When we create a climate where it’s OK to celebrate diversity and difference, then it makes all of our children safer,” said Trustee Kevin Beiser. “Not just the children who happen to be Muslim.”

Trustee John Lee Evans said the issue of Islamophobia and bullying against Muslim is greater today than when the board first called for a plan to address the issue.

“Now we have on a national stage where people openly discuss hatred and discrimination against various groups,” he said. We really need to redouble our efforts at a time like this.”

Tuesday’s meeting was attended by about 150 members of San Diego’s Muslim community, including Hanif Mohebia, executive director of the San Diego office of CAIR, who called the Tuesday night vote an important first step.

“If we do this right, San Diego Unified School District would be the leading school district in the nation to come up with a robust and beautiful anti-bully and anti-Islamophobic program,” he said. “I’m really happy we’re going toward the right direction. I am excited, but also careful and cautious because the work ahead is something we will all be responsible for.”

  1. These people don’t seem to be working with a clear vision. Rather than take a step back and look at the whole gamut of “bullying” or prejudice or whatever, they are right away taking the side of the Muslim students. Ironically, the statistics given show the least number of bullying incidents are due to “religion” and to disabilities, both showing the same number of incidents. The category of “sex” has the highest frequency of bullying, so what have the schools done to address this “sex” issue? And I’m not buying this whole “religion” basis for bullying Muslims. When did Muslims start being a problem in San Diego schools? Surely there have been Muslim students in this district for at least 10 years. Why is it suddenly a problem? Are these American Muslims or immigrants? There is even a cultural gulf between American Muslims and Middle Eastern Muslims, and there’s a good chance the bullying is not based on religion, but on the cultural differences of the immigrants, especially if their English is not that good. But this discussion of the San Diego educators doesn’t seem to be looking at a bigger range of factors. If they fail to do so, they may fail to stop the bullying as well.
