“There is no God but God and Mohammed is his last and greatest prophet,” or so goes the Shahada, the Muslim declaration of faith. Of course it sounds much different in Arabic, which my high school friend was forced to learn in the mid 1990’s.
Mind you, he was NOT taking Arabic. He was enrolled in a mainstream high school history course , a different one than myself.
I would not have clarity on this issue until I learned that enraged parents across the country were reporting similar things. While I am happy that we Infidels are starting to wake up, a part of me remembered my teenage years and felt a bit of shame that it took this long. This is nothing new. It has been happening for at least 20 years….
My friend, being a devout Christian, refused to say the Shahada. He only got away with it because the teacher had 20 plus ignoramuses chanting this thing in unison; their perfect Arabic drowned out his silence.
The Infidel Mother needs to know what the Shahada is. It is significant because in order to convert to Islam, one must only say this thing once and believe it in his or her heart.
In addition, the Shahada is written across the ISIS black standard flag. It is the literal translation of the white Arabic you see on the black background. I think it goes without saying that this group has committed horrid atrocities, and their values are far removed from what we should be imparting on our children.

Many classrooms across the country are having children say the Shahada or write it. Here is a link from fox news on one such example that happened in Maryland:
Another case emerged in Tennessee:
This video below was shown in a classroom in Chatham, New Jersey: (only part 1/2 is below but the second half is easily viewed through a youtube search)
My own personal example is from the west coast. The point is this is happening in many corners of the country, so there is a serious likelihood that your child will encounter it.
Now that you know what the Shahada is, teach your children about it. Then teach your children that it is not acceptable, under any circumstances, for them to say this or write it in its entirety. Your children must be made aware of this by the time they enter 6th grade, since that is when children start to learn about world civilizations, including Islamic ones.
Most teachers are good people, and will understand a refusal to say the above, but even if they don’t, teach your children to stand their ground. Forcing a child to say or write this thing is a gross violation of their constitutional rights. Amendment I: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech…”
It matters not that they are children. They have the right to refuse, just as you have the right to involve an attorney if it comes to that.
If you or your child has an encounter with this thing I want to hear from you. Post your comments below or email me.
Then again, there is always this brave youngsters’s creative solution:
