Making some parents furious, a Pine Bush, New York high school courted controversy by teaching kids to recite our national Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic even changing “one nation under god” to “one nation under Allah.” The morning’s regularly scheduled announcements included the Arabic reading of the pledge.

The person in charge and allowing something so wrong and inappropriate in country should lose their job. Perhaps, this country is no longer a good fit for them and they need to relocate where they might or might not be appreciated.

I’ve seen this all over the country. It’s a growing trend, that we’re supposed to teach our children that Islam is a peaceful religion..but are there any other so-called religions that denegrate women and cut off peoples’ heads, and hate those who are not the same religion? Please….why are we allowing this in the govt. schools?

I don’t understand why the administrator of this school thought that would be appropriate and I’m not sure of his motives here…
That being said, I understand if they were taught he pledge in several different languages, spanish, french, etc including Arabic. Translating the pledge into Arabic would of course use the word Allah because it is the Arabic word for God just as Dios is the Spanish word for God. The word Allah is even used by Christians who speak Arabic so this is nothing to do with Islam.

Stand UP! Christians everyone and take a stand for Jesus. We will lose our right to gather in Jesus name and worship in the Christian faith . Stop this conversion to Islam before we are beheaded in the streets for believing in our faith.

What’s all the hoopla? No one has said the “Pledge” in my classroom in So. CA with respect or sincerity for a decade. Half the class screams out ” and to MEXICO!, for which it stands…. (instead of …To the Republic, for which it stands.”) And, by God,lately, I don’t think they are wrong!
