JIHAD IN AMERICA ROUNDUP:
Highlighted article: National Park Service produces videos praising Islam
What the Hell is the Park Service doing making videos about Islam?
“The National Park Service tells me no federal taxpayer dollars were spent on the production of the videos. They said the funding came through a donation from the Friends of Women’s Rights National Historical Park.
The videos are part of the park’s ongoing effort to share the story of the women’s rights movement and show that the fights for human and civil rights – including the freedom to worship – are struggles that continue to this day,” chief spokesman Mike Litterst said.
The National Park Service did not respond to questions about whether they’ve produced videos promoting other religions – like Christianity or Judaism.
The video praised Islam’s treatment of women – while completely ignoring the violence and discrimination many women are still facing in modern-day Islamic nations.
“People think that Islam oppresses women and there’s no equality but they’re wrong,” one student said. “There’s equity.”
The students said that in Seventh Century A.D. Islam gave women the right to be involved in politics, the right to earn and keep their money and the right to work outside the home.
“Islam gave women the right to own property, Islam gave women the right to divorce, Islam gave women the right to choose who she marries,” a student said.
Another added, “Islam gave women a whole bunch of rights that western women acquired later in the 19th and 20th centuries and we’ve had these rights since the 7th Century A.D. and it’s just not acknowledged worldwide.”
That’s all utter and complete bullshit.
