Ban Mention of Pork in Dearborn Schools to Prevent Muslim Obesity?

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On April 26, 2014 @ 7:33 pm In The Point | No Comments




It seems that Blue Cross and Blue Shield dolled out $73,000 not to fight obesity, but to promote Islam.


Dearborn is set to be a part of a new program that aims to study and help prevent obesity, particularly among Arab American children, thanks to a nearly $73,000 grant.

Suha Kridli, assistant professor at Oakland University’s School of Nursing who secured the grant from the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Foundation for the “Improving Health Behaviors in Arab American Youth” project, said she selected Dearborn for its high concentration of Arab Americans.

The plan, she said, is to for an advisory committee comprised of Dearborn public schools faculty and community members to offer suggestions for changes to the curriculum, like removing mention of foods that Arab Americans typically don’t eat, like pork, and including mention of holidays that they celebrate, like Eid.

Kridli typically conflates Arabs with Muslims. The move to remove pork from books has nothing to do with fighting obesity. If Muslims don’t eat pork, it would make more sense to mention foods that they don’t eat, rather than foods they do eat.

It’s just another case of imposing Islamic religious and cultural norms by any means on the rest of the country.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
