Its official – Rick Perry has tossed his Stetson into the GOP ring for president. He’s the 10th candidate to enter the 2016 race for the White House.
“The world has descended into a chaos of this president’s own making, while his White House loyalists construct an alternative universe where ISIS is contained and Ramadi is merely a setback, where the nature of the enemy can’t be acknowledged for fear of causing offense, where the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism, the Islamic Republic of Iran, can be trusted to live up to a nuclear agreement,” Perry stated during his announcement.
Twelve years earlier, then-Gov Rick Perry signed agreement with his friend and Muslim leader Aga Khan. Then in April 2004, the Aga Khan Foundation and the University of Texas-Austin (UTA) finalized a grant proposal creating the partnership that became known as the Muslim Histories and Cultures Program (MHC).
MHC recruited and directly trained 80 teachers affecting more than 15 thousand students in ten key Texas districts in 2005 and 2006. The project’s curriculum was initially available for viewing on UTA’s website, but has since been scrubbed from the Internet.
Islam scholar Robert Spencer examined the program at the time and concluded, “The curriculum is a complete whitewash and it’s got the endorsement of Perry. It’s not going to give you any idea why people are waging jihad against the West — it’s only going to make you think that the real problem is ‘Islamophobia.’”
This shouldn’t be a surprise as one of the doctrines maintained in Islam is Taqiyya, allowing Muslims to purposefully lie about their true religious beliefs to “unbelievers” and Muslims of different sects. Of course, it is doubtful Texas children will learn any thing about this.
In 2008 he expanded the MHC project and signed off on several Islamic-friendly pieces of legislation, including a consumer protection law ensuring the accurate labeling of food products conforming to Islamic dietary restrictions.
Perry was also instrumental placing Sharia law in the Texas justice system with an Islamic Tribunal operating as a non-profit organization in Dallas, whose website states, “…Muslims here in America are obligated to find a way to solve conflicts and disputes according to the principles of Islamic Law …” adding, “Stoning adulterers, cutting of the hands, polyandry and the like are mainly a part of Islamic Criminal Law.”
We already have an Islamic-enabler in the White House, we don’t need another.
