Let’s Hear it for Islamic “Tolerance”: This is Our Future–& Already Our Present, America

By Debbie Schlussel

We already know what happens when Muslim employees cheer the 9/11 attacks at a Ford Motor Company plant.  They get to keep their jobs for three years.  We already know what happens when Muslim students at a Dearbornistan high school wear sweatshirts memorializing their own frequent praise of the 9/11 attacks.  Their America-hating parents hold an indignant meeting with school officials defending their America-hating kids.


Teacher Nicholas Kafouris Experiences the Joys of Islamic Tolerance and Moderation

And, so, it would be no surprise if what happened to Nicholas Kafouris in Great Britain happened here.  In fact, similar things have already happened and will continue to, since we’ve done nothing to stop Islamic immigration into America, and everything to encourage it.  Whenever you hear Muslims lecture about “tolerance,” this is what they want us to tolerate.  Well past time to stop tolerating it.

A Christian teacher told today how he lost his job after complaining that Muslim pupils as young as eight hailed the September 11 hijackers as ‘heroes’.

Nicholas Kafouris said he was forced from his £30,000-a-year post because he would not tolerate the ‘racist’ and ‘anti-Semitic’ behaviour of children.

He said the predominantly Muslim youngsters openly praised Islamic extremists in class, and hailed the terrorists of the 2001 atrocities as ‘martyrs’.

Mr Kafouris, 40, told how one pupil said to him, ‘Don’t touch me, you’re a Christian’, when the teacher accidentally brushed against him with his arm.

Others said, ‘We want to be Islamic bombers when we grow up’, and ‘the Christians and Jews are our enemies, you too because you’re a Christian’, he added.

Mr Kafouris, who had taught at Bigland Green Primary School, in Tower Hamlets, East London, for 12 years, said there was a change in attitude of pupils at the school – where the majority of pupils are Muslim – after the World Trade Center attacks. . . .

Mr Kafouris, a Greek Cypriot, said pupils told him, ‘We hate the Christians’ and, ‘We hate the Jews’, despite his attempts to stop them.

The teacher is now suing his former school, the headteacher, and the assistant head for racial discrimination after they failed to take action about the comments made by pupils to him.

He had filled out a ‘Racist Incident Reporting Sheet’ but claimed the headteacher Jill Hankey dismissed his concerns.

In a statement submitted to the Central London Employment Tribunal he said: ‘Miss Hankey proceeded to excuse and justify the pupil’s behaviour, conduct and remarks to me as if I had no right to be offended by the child’s remarks and conduct. . . .

He said: ‘In late November and December 2006 a number of unacceptable and blunt racist, anti-Semitic and anti-Christian remarks were being made by various children in Year 4 where I taught, such as, ‘We want to be Islamic bombers when we grow up”,

“The twin tower bombers are heroes and martyrs”, “We hate the Jews”, “We hate the Christians”, “The Christians and Jews are our enemies, you too because you’re a Christian” – directed to me personally.

‘Some children were expressing delight at the death and killing of people of other cultures and religions: In the last week of November 2006 a child was talking about stabbing another child and I told him this was dangerous talk and that a lawyer had recently been stabbed by teenagers; his reply was:, “I’m glad that man died”, ‘Why?’ I asked. “Because he’s a Christian and English and we’re Muslim”.’

During a religious education lesson about Jonah and the whale, he claims one of the pupils asked if Jonah was a Jew, before shouting: ‘I hate the Jews, they’re our enemies.’

Mr Kafouris said he again tried to speak to the headteacher about it.

He said: ‘The head’s response was hostile and offensive again. The very first thing she said to me was: “Oh you again! You’re the only teacher that reports these things! Nobody else does!”. . . .

His case against Tower Hamlets Borough Council, Miss Hankey, Miss Coleman and Bigland Green School opened today.

I can tell you, from my own experience, that I know this same type of thing goes on in Dearbornistan and elsewhere in America, every single day. Don’t think we’re different from Great Britain in this respect. We’re only about a decade or so behind.

You can take the savage out of the Middle East, but you can’t take the Middle East or the Islam out of the savage.  And so, no matter how dignified the school, or high school, the surroundings, or Western his clothing and gear, savage he remains.

Wake up, America.

i dont believe these people, are they so stupid or what. Wat kind of idiot hails at 9/11 those people can not be called Muslims! Because one of the biggest sin in Islam is killing innocent people. I’m a muslim and i hate terrorism
Take care

MO: Nice try. But we all know that Islam doesn’t consider us non-Muslims “innocent people,” so it’s always open season on us. DS

MyOpinion on February 8, 2010 at 4:26 pm

Dear My Opinion:

Where are so called Muslims like yourself? I say “so called” because the violence continues worldwide. I see NO efforts to stop a behavior that is a repeat of what has gone on throughout history.

Just because you say you’re moderate and non violent doesn’t make it so. It’s time to step up and SHOW us through POSITIVE ACTION. Paying lip service is over.

Sam Adams on February 8, 2010 at 4:37 pm

I’m a muslim and i hate terrorism
Take care

MyOpinion on February 8, 2010 at 4:26 pm

If you are being truthful, then you are in the minority of Muslims. Most Muslims CLAIM that they “hate terrorism” but then they blame “terrorism” on the “evil” West. . .Or they immediately blame the victims (if you Americans didn’t do X, Y, Z, the innocent terrorist wouldn’t have had to shoot your soldiers), etc. In reality, that is supporting terrorism.

I was in Thailand in 2002 and even though Islam is only 3% of Thailand’s population, you would see Muslims EVERYWHERE in the country wearing Osama Bin Laden t-shirts, Twin Towers on fire t-shirts, etc. Muslim Americans privately wish they could wear such t-shirts.

I had a friend in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia who was there during 9/11. The day after, her Muslim taxi driver looked at her and said: “You American? Twin Towers! Bang! HAHAHAHAHAHA!”

The truth is: ALL Muslims are terrorists at heart and support terrorism. If you truly renounced terrorism, you would convert from Islam to a peaceful religion.

JM on February 8, 2010 at 4:41 pm

MyOpinion – Because one of the biggest sin in Islam is killing innocent people]

Then why isn’t the “prophet” Mohammed cursed by Moslems as one of the biggest sinners of all time?

I_AM_ME on February 8, 2010 at 4:47 pm

If I had Presidential powers I would sign an executive order closing all further Muslim immigration. Period. I had friends in the foreign service in the 70s who confirmed to me just how nuts these people are. Genetically predisposed to violence.

JLin on February 8, 2010 at 4:59 pm

The Brits have proven themselves to be a bunch of wimps, choking on their own toxic blend of political correctness and tolerance. This keeps them from taking legitimate action against an enemy, and it will be the death of a once great empire. How sad a country that used to be so powerful, and the strength and resolve with which they were able to beat the German Luftwaffe, are now afraid to even stand up for themselves.

And with the people and “leadership” we have in America, we’re headed down the same road with diversity and tolerance slowly killing us.

John on February 8, 2010 at 4:59 pm

    If the United Kingdom has proven itself to be that way, has not the United States as well?

    Worry01 on February 8, 2010 at 5:45 pm

The quran (2:98) says, “allah ado al kafareen (god is the enemy of infidels)”. Every faithful muslim MUST feel the same way in order to submit to the will of his god. Simple stuff.

So, why don’t our governments get that, and put an end to Islamic immigration? We are literally welcoming our avowed enemies into our countries.

stevecanuck on February 8, 2010 at 5:36 pm

I recall what happened if my 5th grade teacher caught me talking when she expected silence in class – you know, detention, writing 100 times “I will not talk in class when I shouldn’t”, etc. And I wasn’t even talking about killing infidels!

But in the UK and elsewhere, Muslims have reached critical mass. THEY now set the rules. And those deemed to “offend” Muslims can be brought up on charges, as happened to Ezra Levant in Canada (yes, Canada!) and the current trial against Geert Wilders in the Netherlands.

Raymond in DC on February 8, 2010 at 6:12 pm

Clearly Islam is not the Religion of Peace, Love, Tolerance, Understanding, Mercy, Compassion, Enlightenment, etc.

It is more like the Religion of Hatred, Violence, Ignorance, Misogyny, Deception, Lies, and Corruption.

To all you Muslims, don’t complain about my assessment of Islam or try to tell me that I am wrong, that Islam is a Religion of Peace, Love, Understanding, Compassion, Tolerance, and other BS!

Congratulate yourselves and adherenents of the Religion of Islam for repeatedly showing the world that what I said above is absolutely 100% factual, and true, as supported by clear, repeatable evidence by the very behavior and words of Muslims throuhgout the world throughout 1400 years of Islam’s history, proven as well by the very Scriptures and Tenets of the “Religion” itself, e.g. the Q’ran, Sharia Law, teachings of Mohammad himself and other leaders in the Islamic faith, Friday night sermoms from Mosques fomenting hatred, etc.

William on February 8, 2010 at 6:24 pm

How ever vicious, evil, vile and fanatic the statements were, I don’t see them as racist. Racism means you think they’re born that way and can’t change. Even these people thinks Jews and Christians can convert to Islam and join the Holy Warriors.

Miranda Rose Smith on February 9, 2010 at 2:06 am

Dear Ms. Schlussel: Is there any way we can email Mr. Kafouris and tell him we’re on his side? Is Mr. Kafouris the only teacher who reports these incidents because he”s a Cypriot and people in his family remember certain…experiences…with the Turkish Moslems?

Miranda Rose Smith on February 9, 2010 at 2:10 am

If you really want to put an end to terrorism and have peace in the middle east then we need to do what nobody wants to do. One more Crusade against Muslims is all that is needed. This planet will not be safe until all muslims are gone. You can’t regulate them, you can’t negotiate with them, you can’t be their buddies. THEY WANT TO KILL US! Until we are willing to do the same to them, we have already lost.

David on February 9, 2010 at 5:36 am

This is the fault of the people not the government. governments do not care especialy liberal ones. The people however let it happen without doing anything.
Where I live Mosques mysteriously burn down in the middle of the night. If memory serves me right even a house or two have turned to ash because their owners were followers of that child mollester Muhammed

martin fee on February 9, 2010 at 9:23 am

Canada is following Britain’s lead in its appeasement of everything Muslim/Islamic. Muslims can do no wrong and they are not to be offended. Meanwhile, non-Muslim Canadians are expected to put up with any, and all harassment. Complete double standard. We’re not “all equal” in Canada. Some are “more equal” (and we all know who they are).

J.S. on February 9, 2010 at 9:39 am

When I was a kid, like a lot of kids, I got sick of being on the short end of bullying confrontations. So I hit the weights and learned some skills. This teacher shouldn’t have to worry about his personal safety in a class room but look at the situation. Now he’s confronted by these bastards and he appears to be about 130 lbs with some of the narrowest shoulders on a man I’ve seen. The VERY first time I had a scum bag roll his eyes at me in a classroom I’d have the kids bad attitude addressed. Something like Tom Barranger in the movie, THE SUBSTITUTE.lol These jihadists are, at heart, mostly cowards. I’ve had about 5 confrontations with these stinky primitives attempting to be aggressive in 1 and 2-5 on one scenarios and when they are face to face with the prospect of serious bodily harm, they back down. They prefer old, or female or skinny little scholars like this teacher unfortunately.

Joe on February 9, 2010 at 10:20 am

Look at what the Brits did to themselves. According to the article, there’s something called a “Racist Incident Reporting Sheet.” In the UK, I imagine that there’s only one type of “Racist Incident” that people report, and it isn’t racism directed toward Christians or Jews.

By banning “offensive” speech, the Brits have done themselves in. The Moslems know this well, and use every law possible against their adopted home countries.

We need to monitor these trends in the US so that the Moslems won’t do this to us here, Dearbornistan notwithstanding.

Chicago David on February 9, 2010 at 10:54 am

Hmmmmmmmmm. Well just send the kids and their families to Muslim countries where they will feel more comfortable among their own kind. They won`t have to mix with those they hate then. Problem solved. But they can`t take anything they`ve built up, earned or bought in the infidel countries. Including college degrees.

Hermster on February 9, 2010 at 11:20 am

I agree with what was said with one exception. In the last paragraph you said (you cant take the middle east out of), I hope that you did not mean to bash all the people that trace thier roots to the middle east. Mr. Kafouri and many of your readers trace roots to that region.

commenter on February 9, 2010 at 11:42 am


So it is OK to bash all Muslims regardless of what they actually believe or how they actually behave, but it is not OK to bash all Middle Easterners? Explain to me how that works. Explain to me why blanket statements are sometimes appropriate and sometimes not. Or when it is OK to use them and when it isn’t. Go ahead. Lay out your ground rules. The amazing thing is that the very same thing that you folks are saying about all Muslims, radical feminists claim about all men and radical Afrocentrists claim about all white people and radical Marxists claim about all capitalists. So, kindly patiently explain to me why the feminists, Afrocentrists and Marxists are wrong but you guys are right.

“The truth is: ALL Muslims are terrorists at heart and support terrorism. If you truly renounced terrorism, you would convert from Islam to a peaceful religion.”

“Just because you say you’re moderate and non violent doesn’t make it so. It’s time to step up and SHOW us through POSITIVE ACTION. Paying lip service is over.”

And this is the best one. “One more Crusade against Muslims is all that is needed. This planet will not be safe until all muslims are gone. You can’t regulate them, you can’t negotiate with them, you can’t be their buddies. THEY WANT TO KILL US! Until we are willing to do the same to them, we have already lost.”

Never mind the fact that there is not a single word in the New Testament that can be construed as supporting a crusade. Speaking of which, how many people making these comments are Christians, and by that I mean Bible-believing Christians? I will answer: none. The reason is that a legitimate Bible-believing Christian knows that God will not allow Muslims to wipe us out. Were that to happen, then the God of Christianity is false and nonexistent and the god of Islam would be the one true god. By making comments like these, you either reveal yourselves to be atheists or Muslims, because an atheist believes that there is no God to protect anyone, and a Muslim believes that his god will defeat those who practice all other religions. You have to be one or the other. Which are you? Christians who live in terror of Muslims or anyone else are either ignorant of the Christian Bible or don’t believe what the Christian Bible says.

You folks are excellent at quoting from the Koran. Well that is your problem, because if you are a CHRISTIAN, then you need to be reading the BIBLE. “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” If you are a Christian, go find that verse in your BIBLE and read it. And while you are at it, go read the verses and chapters before it and after it too.

Now the problem here is not Muslims. It is liberalism. Liberalism would be a problem whether Muslims existed or not. So fight the real enemy.

Gerald on February 9, 2010 at 12:55 pm

    “Christians who live in terror of Muslims or anyone else are either ignorant of the Christian Bible or don’t believe what the Christian Bible says.”

    – Gerald, who claims to be Christian

    Actually, “Christians who live in terror of Muslims” are known as dhimmis, and in the past they had good reason for their terror.

    skzion on February 9, 2010 at 2:51 pm

Thanks Gerald for your pacifistic version of Christianity. Not all of us are Mennonites, or Quakers. Not all of us prove our faith weekly… by passing around a basket of snakes.

At least you got one thing right. Liberalism is a major enemy of Christians. But it isn’t the only one.

TEENAGERS care about who is toughest. When they come looking for a fight, Nicholas, don’t disappoint them.

Take the issue away from religion. The student is being disruptive. Send them out of the class on that basis.

The way to fix the headmaster, Mr Kafouris is to document discussions with her, and go above her head. No results? Keep going. Take the decision-making power out of her hands. The message you are sending THEN is YOU are in control… and that the headmaster and others are incompetent to satisfactorily settle the matter.

That said, Christians need to toughen up with these types of challenges. The secular humanists in public education are not going to help you. They stand for nothing and fall for everything. On the east coast of Canada, a few Muslims challenged the singing of “O’ Canada” and what did the liberal loser principal do? He cancelled the singing of the anthem! Yes, that’s how stupid THEY are.

Months later this disturbing fact was finally discovered by one of the parents who went right to the school board about the cancellation. Another parent threatened to kill the principal, and his girlfriend… The whole stupidity was eventually overturned. BUT it never should have happened.

So know this. Secular humanists control your public school boards. Christians managed Canadian public school boards up until the late 70s, and they handled situations like this much differently. Jehovah Witnesses also didn’t like the national anthem. No problem. In those days, JWs got to leave the classroom for the duration of singing, and also for the Lord’s prayer.

In WW II, my uncles spilled their blood all over Europe to keep Canada free. AND NOT for… years later… to have our Canadian freedom and national pride challenged by unCanadians who paid nothing for their citizenship. I mean nothing other than worthless money.

Rewrite your own country. Canada is for Canadians.

England is for the English, and America is for Americans.

The Canadien on February 9, 2010 at 1:36 pm

Gerald, let me explain myself, the word muslim to me means, a person of the muslim religion who believe in thier books, in islam you are considered a “kafir” infidel if you do not believe in all of the koran and mohammads life “sunna and hadith”. the koran is quoted enough in this site for you to know what it includes. therefore i do not feel bad about generalizing. many muslims do not know what is fully said in thier books, if one wants to be a true muslim then they would join bin laden or hizbullah

commenter on February 9, 2010 at 5:10 pm

What the bible said:

Matthew 10:34
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

Luke 12:51
Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

What the Quran said:

55. Surah Ar-Rahman (The Most Gracious)

1. The Most Beneficent (Allah)!

2. Has taught (you mankind) the Qur’an (by His Mercy).

3. He created man.

4. He taught him eloquent speech.

5. The sun and the moon run on their fixed courses (exactly) calculated with measured out stages for each (for reckoning, etc.).

6. And the herbs (or stars) and the trees both prostrate.

7. And the heaven He has raised high, and He has set up the Balance.

8. In order that you may not transgress (due) balance.

9. And observe the weight with equity and do not make the balance deficient.

10. And the earth He has put for the creatures.

11. Therein are fruits, date-palms producing sheathed fruit-stalks (enclosing dates).

12. And also corn, with (its) leaves and stalk for fodder, and sweet-scented plants.

13. Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?

14. He created man (Adam) from sounding clay like the clay of pottery.

15. And the jinns did He create from a smokeless flame of fire.

16. Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?

17. (He is) the Lord of the two easts (places of sunrise during early summer and early winter) and the Lord of the two wests (places of sunset during early summer and early winter).

18. Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?

19. He has let loosed the two seas (the salt water and the sweet) meeting together.

20. Between them is a barrier which none of them can transgress.

21. Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?

22. Out of them both come out pearl and coral.

23. Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?

24. And His are the ships going and coming in the seas, like mountains.

25. Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?

26. Whatsoever is on it (the earth) will perish.

27. And the Face of your Lord full of Majesty and Honour will abide forever.

28. Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?

29. Whosoever is in the heavens and on earth begs of Him (its needs from Him). Every day He has a matter to bring forth (such as giving honour to some, disgrace to some, life to some, death to some, etc.)!

30. Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?

31. We shall attend to you, O you two classes (jinns and men)!

32. Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?

33. O assembly of jinns and men! If you have power to pass beyond the zones of the heavens and the earth, then pass (them)! But you will never be able to pass them, except with authority (from Allah)!

34. Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?

35. There will be sent against you both, smokeless flames of fire and (molten) brass, and you will not be able to defend yourselves.

36. Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinns and men) deny?

arah on February 9, 2010 at 10:12 pm

arah you forgot to include the parts urging muslims to fight and kill the infidels, some parts about beating women and a lot more. the difference is that the two versus you quoted in the bible do not urge people to kill in order to be religious.

commenter on February 10, 2010 at 12:56 am

I was taught to tolerate Islam, Israeli, Palestinian…well, just take any of your pick of “Non-American Religion” with an M-16A1, with attached Bayonet. They called it “Close Quarters Combat”, or just, “Hey, I outrank you, go stab on that guy”.

It works every time. “Tolerating” that is.
It works to collapse every Empire that has ever existed.
Ask Rome how that turned out. Actually, ask the Vandals.
Ummm…..forget it. They don’t exist either…

If you are so weak of mind and will that you “tolerate” any deviation, you WILL collapse under the weight of your own weakness. Time-Honored, and never changing, in fact, the “Rule of Thumb” for the Empires of all Ages.

CaptainSlappy on February 10, 2010 at 9:51 am

Too bad these Muslim parents couldn’t brainwash their kids to be decent human beings. They all sound the same…like a cult. People need to seriously quit taking taking this crap from these Muslims. Things have changed so much since I was a child. If these idiots keep procreating like they have been, I don’t even want to know what this world will be like in another 20 or 30 years.
