Muslims have no respect for American culture or history, and they have no intention to assimilate… A Muslim student, who is about to attend a historic military academy in South Carolina, is attempting to force the school to allow her to wear a hijab. The school refused her request and told her she is not above the rules.
The school is The Citadel, and I salute them! As this article points out,
The military college, the Citadel, has a long history and has operated as a school for 175 years. It has not allowed an exception to the dress code once in its entire history.
The academy’s president announced the decision earlier this week explaining that, “The standardization of cadets in apparel, overall appearance, actions, and privileges is essential to the learning goals and objectives of the college.”
“This process reflects an initial relinquishing of self, during which cadets learn the value of teamwork to function as a single unit,” the president said, justifying the almost two-century long guideline.
[I would here note that “guideline” is imprecise, indeed incorrect: it is not a guideline, it is a requirement for all Cadets. Period.]
The Citadel allows for religious accommodation so long as it does not undermine the objectives of the school such as morale, health and safety, or good order. Breaking unit cohesion for a head scarf is not acceptable.
The Muslim student is not accepting the school’s decision in good spirit. Instead, she is suing the school with the support of the terror-funded Council of American-Islamic Relations. She says the lawsuit will go through unless the school allows her to attend in a hijab.
The Muslim-led attack on our historic institutions is being launched in an attempt to undermine our history. Muslims have convinced short-sided liberals to abandon their principles in the name of protecting the supposedly oppressed.
The Muslims are not fighting for equality, as the school policy treats people of all faiths equally. Instead, they demand special privileges for only themselves.
We see this time and again! Look at Moslem insistence on halal-only meats in school cafeterias, attempts to prevent people from walking dogs in neighborhoods where Moslems live and to get women to cover up on the beach, even a Change.org petition, a few years ago, attempting to ban Oktoberfest in Munich, of all things!
This is a part of the process known as creeping Sharia, where Muslims are able to trick a country into adopting Sharia law one principle at a time.
Indeed it is. The pattern, seen over and over again at many times and places, is for Moslems to appear accommodating and peaceful until they perceive themselves to be in a sufficient position of strength to make their real demands known (see taqiyya and dawa). This needs to be recognized, and it needs to be stopped.
Again, I salute The Citadel for taking this action! God grant they stick to their guns. And if it comes to a law suit, I hope and pray that it is settled in favor of the school. This is yet another front in the war against the West!
