The small town of Concrete, Washington, however, isn't so easily intimidated. When a teacher recently said that Hamas and the Taliban are organizations that bully people (and what could be more obvious than that?), CAIR accused her of making racist remarks. But instead of backing down from this smear campaign, the town rallied around their brave teacher. I hope we see more Americans taking a stand against CAIR's bullying tactics in the future.
Concrete, Washington--The community of Concrete, Washington rallied around Mary Janda, a veteran teacher of 21 years at the Concrete Middle School in Concrete, WA, who was under attack by the radical Washington affiliate of Hamas-connected Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), accusing her of racism against Muslims on Tuesday.
According to Jason Miller of the Concrete Harold, more than 450 people, nearly half of the total population of Concrete, filled the Concrete Assembly of God Church in support of teacher Mary Janda.
Miller said that ACT! For America Washington Director Kerry Hooks joined Shahram Hadian, a former Muslim and the founder of the Truth In Love Project spoke at the rally.
“You’re not dealing with a civil rights group. That is a front,” said Hadian. “You are dealing with a group that has billions of dollars behind them from elements that want to further Islamic law.”
Miller said that Hadian was born in Iran and is now a U.S. citizen. He said he witnessed “oppressive radical Islam” take over his country, and sees the same strategies being used by CAIR to insert its version of Islam into the public school system. “The access they’ve been given in our public schools is not being given to any other group,” he said. “They want specialized treatment for their brand of Islam.”
The planned rally was reported on March 16 by the Paulding County Republican Examiner when the announcement came from the national chapter ACT! For America in response to CAIR’s attack on Ms. Janda.
The alleged incident occurred last October but the radical Islamic group began last month calling for federal investigators to look into the Concrete School District after the allegations that the teacher, Mary Janda, made racist remarks.
At that time, CAIR accused her of racism when she said during a class discussion on bullying that terrorist organizations, Hamas and the Taliban were examples of organizations that use violence to bully people.
On his website, Shahram Hadian said on Wednesday, “Despite Concrete's population of just over 700 people, an estimated 450 people overflowed a community meeting to show their support for teacher Mary Janda and the Concrete community, who are being maliciously bullied and maligned by the Muslim Brotherhood/HAMAS front-group, CAIR.” (Continue Reading.)
