This sure isn’t America anymore. At least not the America I once knew.
In a speech at the Islamic Circle of North America Convention on May 26, 2012, U.S. Congressman André Carson (D-Indiana) told the audience that U. S. schools should be modeled after madrassas and touted the benefits of schools that use the Koran as their “foundation.”
A madrassa or madrasah is a Muslim school, college, or university that is often part of a mosque.
You can see and hear for yourself in the video below. At the 6:19 mark, Carson declares:
“America will never tap into educational innovation and ingenuity without looking at the model that we have in our madrassas, in our schools, where innovation is encouraged, where the foundation is the Quran. And that model that we are pushing in some of our schools meets the multiple needs of students…. There are over 7 million Muslims in this country. And while we are under attack, we cannot retreat.”
Carson is the same Muslim congressman who in August 2011 told a Miami crowd that the Tea Party would “love” to see black Americans “hanging on a tree.”
On May 4, 2010, Carson won the Democratic candidacy for Indiana’s 7th Congressional District with 89% of the vote.
By the way, a Muslim group — the non-profit Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs — will host a mass prayer at the upcoming Democratic National Convention. As many 20,000 people are expected to attend.
