HOUSTON, Texas — Opponents of a Texas Arabic Immersion Magnet School (AIM) call the pre-K and kindergarten program “civilizational jihad.” The program was imposed by the largest school district in the state, and the seventh largest school district in the United States. Opponents say that Americans simply do not know what is happening in this school, and in America.
The group of protestors billed their event as “Stop the New Jihad!” They say that Americans and Texans in general need to become more educated about Islam and their intent to engage in “civilizational jihad” in America. They warn that the Texas school district is planning to expand grade levels in the AIM school every year.
Local “Stop the Magnet” activist, Liz Theiss told Breitbart Texas, “Civilizational jihad is what we feel is a network operating within the U.S. to promote Arabic culture and language and it operates through stealth within the community to create trust.”
She says this strategy is listed in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Strategic Plan for North America. The plan was seized by the FBI during the largest terrorism financing trial in United States’ history, as written about by Breitbart Texas.
In May 2009, five of the key leaders of the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) were sentenced after having been convicted in November, 2008, of providing material support to the terrorist organization.
The HLF, located in Texas, was designated as a terrorist organization by the federal government in 2001. The organization was shut down and its assets were seized because the charity’s primary purpose was found to fund Hamas. Hamas has been designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. and other governments.
