They're taking our children


www.brisbanetimes.com.au

A six-month Good Weekend investigation has confirmed that children, possibly in their thousands, have been enticed away over the past decade or more with the promise of a free education. In a province where the schools are poor and the families poorer still, no-cost schooling can be an irresistible offer.
But for some of these children, who may be as young as five, it's only when they arrive that they find out they have been recruited by "pesantren", Islamic boarding schools, where time to study maths, science or language is dwarfed by the hours spent in the mosque. There, in the words of

Now of course there is a long history of similar behaviour or even worse in the West - this article is from Brisbane, and one does not have to go far back in Australian history to find the "Lost Generation" of aboriginal children forcibly removed from their families for adoption by white parents, or even "orphans" from the UK sent to places like Australia, the treatment of Catholics in anglican England not so long ago (200 years or so), etc.

However the overt religious nature speaks to the expansionist and intolerant nature of islamic majority countries - even ones that are at least nominally not Islamic states.

One good thing is that in the modern world it is possible to find out about inhuman bahavior like this and object to it - I do not say shame the perpetrators because I think they will sincerely think they are doing the right thing - as do all zealots!

There are stories about this type of indocrination all around the U.S. and Europe as well. But it seems little is done about it.

I guess that it isn't PC to raise a ruckus over this.

Sad times

Well it certainly did happen in Australia when they had the crazy idea of breeding out the Aboriginal people.

Sad to imagine that people actually thought like that at one time.

Anyways, if it happened before it could certainly happen again.

Any problem with this would be solved if the public schools were funded by the states government, not by local politics (which means low income = low taxes = low money to be spent on public projects like schools, kindergartens and such).

You don't need to have a poor school in a poor neighborhood - here we had quite good results as soon as schools in difficult areas with high unemployment were upgraded with up-to-date equipment and more/better motivated teachers. Which are paid the same as everywhere else.

Since 1 August 2001, Germany has allowed registered partnerships (Eingetragene Lebenspartnerschaft) for same-sex couples. These partnerships initially provided many but not all of the rights of marriage, and currently provide all except joint adoption and full tax benefits. As of 22 October 2009, the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany has ruled that all the rights and obligations of marriage be extended to same-sex registered partners.[1] An increasingly large majority of the German people support allowing full legal recognition for same-sex marriage, with 74% support recorded in the latest poll.

Yay for Germany!

Hitler must be turning over in his grave. There's goes the master race. All girly boys now. What happened to the macho men of the SS and Gestapo? The real Aryans? The ones who came down from the Himalayas in Tibet long ago?

Alarming news from a developing country in the North-South debate.
I think this also has relevance for regions of Africa that are caught between fundamentalist Islamism and Christianity.

Sadly many cults and religions seem to think they have rights to children, which was always a concern for grandparents when their children joined new religions that cut them off, and the parents disappeared with innocent grandchildren into compounds, ashrams or Islamist insurgent groups, often with impoverished conditions, useless religious mind-control education and frequent allegations of physical and sexual abuse.
One only thinks of the ISKCON schools in the 1970s and 1980s, for example.

Even more concerning are the cases of outright kidnapping, frequently based on false promises, often from marginalized communities.
Islamism is one danger.
Never mind that young converts from around the globe may be "willingly" recruited to join Islamic militias, but the the film I Am Slave (the alleged story of Mende Nazer) pointed to Arab slavery of Sudanese Africans as far afield as London.

Evangelical Christians have also been known to run trafficking and adoption rackets.

Recently a concerning book titled The Child Catchers was written by Kathryn Joyce about evangelical adoption rackets in Ethiopia.
www.thedailybeast.com...

In 2006 an entire Zambian choir was trafficked by evangelicals to the US under false pretenses.
Then there were the shocking allegations of the Jewish fundamentalist Satmar sect, and their custody schemes over Sephardi children.
(See: www.abovetopsecret.com... for links.)

One fears these cases are just a tip of the iceberg.
Human trafficking is bad enough, but they are particularly shameful when practiced by religions, who should stand for family values and not breaking them up and stealing people.
What separates the behavior of these religious groups from gangsters?
Of course there are two sides to every story, and some groups would say they were only trying to help, but perhaps its time every group concerned itself with its own children.
