Judge green-lights parent’s lawsuit against public school teaching ‘Islam is the true faith’

Nancy Gayer and Libby Hilsenrath
If it were not for these two moms, Nancy Gayer and Libby Hilsenrath, the Islamic propaganda videos would still be rolling inside the Chatham Middle School.

A federal judge has refused to toss out a lawsuit brought by a parent against the Chatham, New Jersey, school district, which showed seventh-graders a pro-Muslim video that included an invitation to convert to the “true faith.”

In denying the school district’s motion to dismiss the case, U.S. District Court Judge Kevin McNulty said the motion was worth only “minimal discussion.”

Kate Oliveri, an attorney with Thomas More Law Center, is representing Libby Hilsenrath, whose 12-year-old son attends Chatham Middle School. Oliveri said the decision to let the lawsuit proceed came as no surprise.

“The motion to dismiss was a further attempt by the school district to bully and silence Mrs. Hilsenrath,” she said. “The school district ignored the legal standard and ignored the facts, attempting instead to fool the judge with a poor attempt at sophistry.”

The lawsuit claims that seventh-grade students at the Chatham Middle School were forced to watch a set of videos in their World Cultures and Geography class that sought to convert them to Islam. Here is a sampling of what the students learned by watching just one of the 5-minute videos:

  • God gave Muhammed the noble Quran
  • The Quran is a Perfect guide for Humanity
  • The Quran is divine revelation
  • Islam is a shining beacon against the darkness of repression, segregation, intolerance and racism​
  • The Beautiful Quran is Guidance for the wise & sensible.

Then came the topper. The video ends with this: “May God help us all to find the true faith, Islam.”

A musical version of an Arabic poem plays in the background throughout the video. The lyrics describe Christians and Jews as infidels and praises Muhammed for slaughtering them: . . . “their white shining swords red with the blood of infidels
. . . until they looked like meat on the butcher’s block.”

When Libby Hilsenrath first brought her concerns to the school board’s attention, on Feb. 6, 2017, they were dismissed out of hand.

And, when she and fellow parent Nancy Gayer appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Show a week later to express her concerns to the nation, she was roundly condemned by the school community. [See interview with Tucker Carlson below]

Because of Hilsenrath’s attempts to persuade school officials to remove the videos and stop the Islamic indoctrination of her son and the other seventh-grade students, she has been subjected to a barrage of vicious personal attacks on social media and in public venues across her community.

Oliveri said the Chatham Board of Education and certain school-district teachers are “waging a war” against the religious protections afforded by the First Amendment.

“They attack religious liberty by enticing young school children with a direct call to convert to Islam and providing a step-by-step guide on how to effect that conversion,” Oliveri said. And then when two parents complained, the school district embarked on a concerted effort to smear their character.

If anything remotely this aggressively Christian were presented to public-school children in any corner of the United States, the ACLU would be ready to pounce with a lawsuit. But the ACLU is curiously silent in the New Jersey case.

Thank God for the Thomas More Law Center, said James Komaniecki, president of  RestoreAmericanLiberty.com.

“Thank Almighty God that TMLC is taking these people to the mat on this,” said  Komaniecki. “If we don’t stand up to radical Islam in our own nation, we will be undermined from within until nothing remains of our own culture and Christian faith.”

The federal lawsuit was filed Jan. 23 in the New Jersey District Court against several officials and teachers of the Chatham Middle School and the school district.

Richard Thompson, president of TMLC, said the absurdities introduced to students at Chatham Middle School are the same ones being introduced to students at schools across the U.S.

“Witless school officials have converted classrooms across America into Islamic indoctrination centers,” he said. “These schools do not educate, they propagandize. Under the guise of teaching social studies courses, teachers promote the religion of Islam in ways that would never be legally allowable for Christianity or any other religion.

“Because the explicitly stated goal of Muslim leaders and organizations is to dominate America by a ‘civilization jihad,’ these schools collude with them to jeopardize our national security.”

The Thomas More Law Center is a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

“To protect our children and our nation from the insidious Islamic propagandizing going on in our public schools, courageous parents like Libby Hilsenrath must take the time to know exactly what their children are being taught,” Thompson said. “And if it’s Islamic propaganda, take action to stop it.”

  1. The saddest part about this sort of issue is that so many Christian families are too busy to examine and involve themselves in what their kids are being taught in school. The smart ones pull their kids out and bite the bullet to be able to home school their children. The only other alternative is to move them to private school. What the government schools are counting on is that there is a relatively small number of people who can afford to home school or pay for private school and so the indoctrination will still be effective on the vast majority of the population of students. If this does not scare the heck out of you, you are asleep or drinking the leftist Kool-Aid. Either way, your kids are screwed into believing this crap to their detriment.

  2. We live fairly close to Dearborn in SE Michigan, which has a very high concentration of muslims in the community, in addition to other areas of metro Detroit. Luckily, I have not seen any of this propaganda being disseminated in my kids’ schools. I have been trying to keep up with this over the years, and have asked both my kids to be aware if anything like this is given to them. So far so good.

    When I read stories like this, or like the one about the mosque in WV soliciting schools there, it is absolutely maddening. Liberals and their PC left wing ideology are letting this happen. I don’t know if they just don’t want to offend muslims or if they hate Christianity so much they think this will bring about the fundamental transformation that makes America more like EU.

    Parents be vigilant – this is indoctrination pure and simple. I applaud these parents for taking this to court….probably one of the few ways to slow/prevent the islam invasion of our country.

  4. Great that these parents are suing. I’m all for teaching about Islam – the truth about Islam. My sense: the truth will demolish Islam. That is why there is such a war against freedom of speech. In the meantime, here is a kids’ video, for kids 8 and up, that tells the truth in a way that is easy, clear, fun. And it’s just 9 minutes! ISLAM – WHO, WHAT, AND HOW. It even talks about al Walaa wal Baraa. What is that? Watch the video. Bill Warner rated it A+ Here is is: https://youtu.be/vsN5lvu1SZk

  5. I especially liked the statement about islam being a shiny beacon against the darkness of repression, segregation, intolerance and racism. What a joke, that is exactly what islam does, it represses any who do not believe their b.s., they segregate was the sexes, they are intolerant of homosexuals and transgenders, and they hate white people and Jews.

    1. I was thinking the same thing! And, even worse, there are records/texts describing how Mohammad disdained the Black race…..so, any description of Islam as a shining beacon against racism is truly laughable. But, as we know, in modern times, Islam has done their best to convert Black people to the “true faith”. If Black people truly knew/read what Mohammed said about their race, they’d be appalled.

    2. I do not agree with Islam, but their intolerance of homosexuals and transgender people is actually right. Everything else about Islam I strongly disagree with.

  6. What is even more troubling is that the principals and school boards are allowing this kind of illegal indoctrination to go forth in the classroom. They ought to be telling the teachers that this is illegal, and if they continue, fire the teachers. Instead , they seem to be turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to the whole thing.
