A new brochure from the German Federal Government advises educators to seek out racist, Islamophobic, xenophobic, sexist, and anti-Muslim migration ideas in young children’s heads and work to counteract them. A new manual for teachers was published and handed out in kindergartens and bears the title: “Ene, mene, muh – and get out to you!”
(NOTE to BNI readers) This is an English translation of the German original which I have tried to clarify when the translation was lacking:
BZ.Berlin (h/t MarvinW) The brochure advice is given on how to recognize these dangerous ideas in the children’s minds and how to counteract them.
In the preface Federal Family Minister Franziska Giffey (SPD) writes: “We see (…) a significant increase in right-wing populist movements.” That’s why it was “important to counteract these views in early childhood education (…).”
From Alternative for Germany (AfD) The Editor of this guide is, of course, the seamy Amadeu Antonio Foundation, whose chairman, Anetta Kahane, has already served as a Stasi in Victoria. Readers of the brochure are given concrete advice on how to recognize and counteract what the state considers racist, Islamophobic, xenophobic, and sexist ideas in kindergarten classes.
For example, in a German ethnic home, a girl who wears clothes and braids is guided at home to homemaking and crafts, while her brother is expected to engage in physical endeavors like sports.
In such a case, “the parents are asked to meet with the kindergarten teacher” in order to explain to them how “authoritarian and gender stereotypical parenting guides reduce the many opportunities for children (…).”
Another example describes how a mother is worried because a lot of Muslim refugee children are in the classroom. She fears that the level of education is diminished because of their disruptive presence as well as their inability to keep up with the class, to which she receives the following explanation: “These concerns are unfounded, the parents are told. And they are referred to the section in the brochure on “diversity education.”
Once one concedes to the state the privacy of families, a fundamental limit is exceeded. What can happen very quickly, is happened in the German dictatorships: the GDR and the Nazi Regime in which children were subjected to mind control and even used as spies against their parents.
Educators should be able to decide independently and without government interference, if a child suffers through radical settings in the parental home. Specifying which family beliefs must be considered dangerous, is not a tenet of a free country.
This expensive waste of paper was done at the expense of taxpayers. It is promoting universal attitudes, just as in totalitarian systems. In the Nazi era, children were subjected to such moral review and even used as snitches against their own parents. Privacy and freedom of expression should be the basis of a functioning democracy. It is not the task of the state and kindergartens to review the way of life or belief of parents.
Even worse, Islamic curricula are being promoted by schools in the West, not just in Germany, but Britain and the US, too.
Propaganda put out by leftists include: Islamic Curriculum for Kindergarten is a topic that interests parents and educators alike. The growing popularity of Islam as a religion and a way of life have generated a tremendous interest in Islamic schooling which in turn has created a need to look at curriculum development from an Islamic perspective.
Tasneema Khatoon Ghazi is a USA based educationist. She specializes in kindergarten Curriculum development with the Islamic perspective. In her curriculum outline, she explains the objectives of an Islamic curriculum (you can read her entire work by clicking here).
Children should be able to believe and realize the following:
- Everyone is created by Allah (SWT) alone.
- Allah (SWT) takes care of everyone: humans, animals, and plants.
- We should thank Allah (SWT) for His blessings.
- We should take care of Allah’s creations.
- Allah (SWT) has given us senses to observe, a mind to think and a hea1’t to love.
- We should enjoy, cherish and appreciate the world created by Allah (SWT) and not pollute or destroy it.
- Allah (SWT) has made the Creation for our use and has put many signs in it to remind us of Him.
