American children gathered around a Muslim learning about the Qur’an for school credit.

Washington, DC — At a press conference today, President Obama announced plans for the first ever federally funded Muslim outreach program. The program will be available nationwide for all elementary school students grade K-12 beginning February 1st, 2014. The program is designed to educate children about the fundamentals of the Muslim religion and Islamic belief.

President Obama spoke with reporters to explain why it is so important that these outreach programs exist. “The Muslim community deserves our full understanding and respect,” Obama said. “We have killed millions of Muslims overseas since the September 11th attacks. These folks are not all bad. In fact, most of them are hardworking citizens just like you and me. I encourage every student in America to participate in your school’s Muslim outreach program. Learn about the Muslim community, the beauty of the Sunnah and the magic of the Qur’an.”


35-year-old Paul Horner, a teacher at Starks Elementary School in Louisiana, told MSNBC he is excited about the new program. “I think anything a child can learn is good. We need more learning in this country,” Horner said. “These classes are not mandatory but children can use them as extra credit towards other classes. For example, if Becky has a D+ in math she can take a three week after-school class on the Qur’an and would then have an A in Math. That’s a win-win for everyone!”

The Muslim youth outreach program is designed to help young people from different cultures work together to break down ethnic barriers. Their goal is to help promote a greater respect for other cultures, understanding while at the same time learning about all that culture has to offer.

Khaled Matei, who is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood‘s Freedom and Justice Party, told CNN he is pleased with Obama and his actions. “I spoke with President Obama by telephone yesterday and personally thanked him for what he is doing for the Muslim community,” Matei said. “This is definitely a step in the right direction I explained to him. Praise Allah.”

If any parents of students would like to volunteer and teach the Muslim religion you can call the Nationwide Muslim Youth Outreach hotline at (202) 863-8500.

    You can point to the evidence but you can’t make anyone think. There are other reasons to suspect this of being fraud or a satirical work but the changing phone number is the most obvious.

    I just hope this (and other similar examples) will remind us all, regardless of political beliefs, to question and think. There is a lot of disinformation and misinformation in the media. We all have a responsibility to think critically about what we are reading or hearing before snapping to judgement and should fact checking anything that is questionable.

    But, with the Islamic way ….just by being a girl,Becky shouldn’t be in school -she should be married, traded, sold or worse by the age of 9 or 10 . I wonder if there will be a Christian outreach program for Muslim students failing courses??

    So much for the idea that Government will not support/push any religion!
    One other thought from the story, Teacher points out that if the student got a D in Math, the student can get extra credit with the class on Islam and have Math raised to A. Now how does that improve the student’s math skills?
