American 15,000 Muslims to Assemble in Connecticut in Support of Sharia and Against 'Islamophia' this Weekend -  The Blaze - Muslims who are disheartened by increasingly fervent attacks on sharia law are planning to assemble en masse this weekend to protest against what they fear are attempts to discriminate against their way of life. This weekend, 15,000 believers are expected to descent upon Hartford, Connecticut, for the 37th annual Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) convention. The Muslim American Society-sponsored conference, entitled, “Defending Religious Freedom: Understanding Shariah,” will take place from May 26-28. According to Religion News Service, the event is the second largest annual event for Muslims in the U.S., behind the Islamic Society of North America’s annual gathering (the latter event attracts 30,000+ people).The focus of the event will be on sharia, Islamic law that is intended to govern the lives of believers. The Blaze has covered the opposition that exists to Muslim law here in America numerous times before. As RNS highlights, Kansas, Arizona, Oklahoma, Missouri, South Dakota and Tennessee are among the locations where legislation has been approved to ban judges from considering foreign laws. This, of course, would include sharia law (in Kansas, legislation has not yet been signed by GOP Gov. Sam Brownback).

Neil Snyder - You are not an Islamophobe if you Think Radical Islam is a Threat - In the United States today among the self-professed “enlightened ones,” the prevailing view is that people who see a Muslim threat to global peace and security are Islamophobes. I’m one of those people and you probably are too, but I’m not afraid of Islam—the religion. I am concerned about the space cadets, airheads, dimwits, and useful idiots who have to ignore mountains of evidence to conclude that radical Islam isn’t a threat to the world as we know it. Israel in particular is under threat because Islamists in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and Iran have committed their lives and everything they possess to bring about her destruction. That’s perfectly clear in the Hamas Charter and in the Palestinian Charter. Israel is completely surrounded by her enemies, and President Obama thinks that Islamists can be placated by giving them pieces of the already tiny country. Anyone who buys that line of reasoning is not just drinking the Kool-Aid. He or she suffers from psychotic delusions.   Read more.......

Arabic Mandatory at NY City Public School - NY Post - An upper Manhattan public elementary school will be the first in the city to require that students study Arabic, officials said yesterday. Beginning next semester, all 200 second- through fifth-graders at PS 368 in Hamilton Heights will be taught the language twice a week for 45 minutes — putting it on equal footing with science and music courses. One reason Principal Nicky Kram Rosen selected Arabic — as opposed to more common offerings, such as Spanish or French — is because it will help the school obtain a prestigious International Baccalaureate standing.
