Since everyone here is railing against Prayer in the public workplace, could you please explain why I have to say the National Anthem in school every morning? I dont belive in GOd, so why bother with the BS of 1 nation under God? What a crock.
Sure they Do

happy Islamo-Fascism Awareness week-

The films available for screening are:

The Path to 9/11 (longer film—may require two nights for screening)

Description: This controversial ABC miniseries dramatizes the 1993 World Trade Center attack and the events leading up to the terrorist attack of September 11th. Due to pressure from Bill Clinton and his supporters, ABC was forced to edit out several crucial scenes before the broadcast. While this miniseries may never be released, we are lucky to have the full, unedited version intended for broadcast on DVD.

Obsession

Description: The acclaimed documentary Obsession uses unique footage from Arab television to create an ‘insiders’ view of the hatred Islamic radicals are teaching in the Middle East, their incitement of global jihad, and their goal of world domination. The film features interviews with Daniel Pipes, Steve Emerson, Alan Dershowitz, a former PLO terrorist, and even a former Hitler Youth commander.

Islam: What the West Needs to Know

Using original interviews, citations from Islamic texts, Islamic artwork, computer-animated maps, footage of Western leaders, and Islamic television broadcasts, Islam: What the West Needs to Know reveals the roots of the violent, expansionist ideology of Al-Qaeda and other Islamic jihadist groups, showing how they seek the destruction or subjugation of other faiths, cultures, and systems of government. In so doing, this presentation paves the way for courageous Islamic reformers to confront and formulate a new approach to the Islamic teachings that the jihadists exploit.

Islam v. Islamists

This film answers the questions, asked so frequently after 9/11: Where are the moderate Muslims? Where is their voice of outrage over what is being done in the name of their religion? Islam v. Islamists finds these moderates and presents their outrage. But it also shows how such individuals are being slandered and threatened by their radical Islamist brethren, who isolate them by claiming that they are not “true” Muslims at all.

We are working on getting the rights to distribute additional films. We will announce these on our website and send out email notifications in the near future.
Quantities of each film are limited, so please respond promptly to receive the best selection. Please let us know which day you plan to screen the film, and make sure to reserve an appropriate auditorium. Forms giving you permission to screen the film on campus are available through the David Horowitz Freedom Center.
More information on holding other events (speakers, protests, petition drives, memorial services, etc) is available in our Student Guide to Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week, to be found at www.terrorismawareness.org .

A flyer depicting anti-American quotes from three radical Islamic leaders who have been frequent speakers at campus MSA gatherings has been prepared to notify students about the Week on your campus. We recommend that these flyers be posted at least twice on each campus participating in the Week—once at the beginning of October and again directly before to attract attention for upcoming events. We will send you the flyer via email upon request.

Other literature and materials for Stop the Jihad on Campus Week are available on our website, www.terrorismawareness.org .

To participate in Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week and to get your FREE COPY of one of more of the above films to screen during Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week, please contact Jeffrey Wienir at mailto:[email protected] center.org or at 800-752-6562, ext. 206.

I didn't know we "said the national anthem" I though we sing the National Anthem. Everyone should pledge allegiance to the Nation, you don't have to say under God if you don't want to, but you should be greatful to the amenities this great country gives you - regardless of your beliefs or lack of beliefs.

You must go to a public school funded by government. I agree God shoud not play a part in our nation. Not much you can do except go to a private school. Just stand up and smile, they can't make you recite it.

Islam is simply not compatable with Western society. One only has to look at Western Europe to see the results of Multi-Culturism "gone berserk". I for one WILL NOT conform to that twisted ideaology. I am proud of the workers for STANDING UP to the nonsense , and we all can learn a lesson from them!

As I mentioned earlier, employers like this should be made to feel the impact of a boycott of every product they sell. They could care less about what we want or what we think, but when you stop buying their products and the cash flow is interrupted, then, they will start paying attention - AND ONLY THEN!

That's the Pledge of Alligence, not the National Anthem, and if you don't belive in God, don't say that part. Nobody is required to say the Pledge, they are just required to stand durning it.

WHY is this the case? Could it be that this is one of the very few religions that has NOT evolved with time? This could also explain why they have never stopped fighting or hating for hundreds of years - even withing their own religion. Maybe they should grow up a little.

TRUE - But the idea that these folks would be open minded enough to consider alternative thoughts or respect for others, does not look that promissing.

What does the national anthem have to do with God? Do you mean the Pledge of Allegiance?

As a thirty something, what upsets me the most is many of the elderly somalians and even some not elderly are drawing on Social Security to which they have never paid a nickle into, which will leave myself with NOTHING when I retire.

I'm told they get this from the sickest of Americans, called the bleeding hearts. Seems they have programs all set up where they school the immigrants on how to demand and get all the social services that are available.
Another way to look at this is that the employer gets what they deserve. They wanted cheap, unskilled and perhaps illegal immigrant types. Fine, now deal with the costs of that decision - including the cost of losing business from people who take the time to learn about the products they market and avoid them, while alerting all your friends about all this, so they can avoid buying stuff from them, too!
