No joke. Your tax dollars paid for Obama’s National Park Service to make videos that praise Islam’s contributions to women’s rights. Indoctrination thrown in as added bonus and no explanation given as to why this is a function of the National Park Service.
Islam and women’s rights? Really? Are they referring to all those women’s rights like honor killings, stonings, gang rapes, the loss of independence to travel, hijabs and burqas… those women’s rights? Maybe a more accurate and honest overview (along with less taxpayer cost) could have been achieved by providing a free movie download showing The Stoning of Soraya M.
The Independent Journal Review reports the following:
Another example of your hard-earned tax dollars at work! Apparently, the National Park Service has a ton of money lying around and thought that maybe producing some pro-Islam videos might further their mission to provide national parks to Americans.
So they hired a media person to visit the AnNur Islamic School in Schenectady, NY and got the real truth about Islam. Which may surprise you.
From the first part of the 3 videos at the 4:45 mark:
People think that Islam oppresses women and there’s no equality, but they’re wrong – there’s equity… 7th century A.D. Islam gave women the right to be involved in politics, the right to earn and keep her own money. Islam gave women the right to work outside of the home, Islam gave women the right to own property, Islam gave women the right to divorce, Islam gave women the right to choose who she marries. Islam gave women a whole bunch of rights that Western women acquired later in the 19th and 20th centuries and we’ve had these rights since the 7th century A.D. and it’s just not acknowledged worldwide.
[...] Well thank goodness the National Park Service is doing the job that no one else will – defend the history of Islam’s contributions to Women’s liberation!
JihadWatch adds a great point:
Your tax dollars at work. I am looking forward to seeing the National Park Service videos praising the contributions of Judaism and Christianity to women’s rights.
