Terrorist Wrote Clinton’s School Religion Guidelines

A terror suspect that has been arrested for transporting money from a group tied to Libyan leader, Moammar Gadhafi, and who has been shown to have connections to bin Laden, helped write the “Religious Expression in Public Schools” issued by President Clinton during his tenure in office.


Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was president of the American Muslim Council and a supporter of Hamas and Hezbollah, worked with President Clinton and the American Civil Liberties Union when the guidelines, launched by Clinton in 1995, were being developed, according to reports.

Those are the same guidelines that the ACLU’s Nadine Strossen referred to for authority when supporting organization lawsuits to restrict Christmas celebrations and the removal of the Nativity from public display, the reports said.

When Clinton issued the guidelines, he announced that they had been developed by “35 religious groups” but didn’t disclose that many of those were civil rights organizations such as the ACLU, and committed whole-heartedly to the separation of church and state.

Today, Christmas and Nativity scenes are outlawed while Clinton’s nominee, U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton, recently approved ‘Islam: A Simulation’ where children learn to become Muslim, recite the Quran, fast for Ramadan and pray to Allah.

Following the guidelines, the judge ruled that the Muslim teaching could continue in the Byron Union School District in California, deciding that it was just cultural education.

But Edward White III, of the Thomas More Law Center which handled the California lawsuit, asked, “Would it have been ‘just cultural education’ if students were in simulated baptisms, wearing a crucifix, having taken the name of St. John and with praise banners saying ‘Praise be to Jesus Christ’ on classroom walls?”

Jay Stephenson has a proposal for the ACLU:

Perhaps the ACLU should change its slogan to, “If standards are good then double standards must be twice as good.” Or maybe just adopt one saying something like, “ACLU: We don’t hate religion, just Christianity.”

Looks like this is more true than we previously thought:
