Who’s Teaching YOUR Children?

Granted, this is an isolated incident, but…

Khalid Chahhou, who was in his first year of teaching in Johnston County, gave students a worksheet in which they were to translate words and find them within a word-search puzzle.

Some students started uncovering strange words in the process.

“There were words like ‘kill,’ then I saw it said ‘destroy America,’” Eric Herrera said.

Not to mention:

“Allah help destroy this body of evil making humanity miserable.”

In his defense, the teacher says:

Chahhou, who also teaches Arabic at a religious school affiliated with the Islamic Association of Cary, told WRAL in a telephone interview that students got the wrong message from the assignment.

“When I made the assignment, I was upset and angry about a story I recently saw on the news. If any message appears, it is more of a message to myself, not to my students. I never meant to hurt or upset any students or parents,” he said.

Yeeeeeeah, right, Mr. Chahhou. Most teachers insert messages to themselves into school assignments when they’re upset over a news story.

What’s most troubling about this to me isn’t that he pulled this with his public school students, it’s that he teaches at a Muslim school as well.

God only knows what he’s teaching them in Arabic.

I urge you to listen to the words of an American citizen calling for shari’a law.
