After enrolling his daughter at a private Christian school in Texas, a father was furious when the board hit him with six little words in their policy.
On August 18, Imad Khalil uploaded a video, which has since gone viral on Facebook. In the footage, he and his daughter, Pamela Moubarak, detail their experience with her enrollment at Cornerstone Christian Schools, the private religious academy that she desired to attend.
After a tour of the campus, school officials asked one last question to complete the enrollment process. However, as soon as they questioned the family’s religious background, the school had a startling surprise for their hopeful attendee.
After the family confirmed that they are all Muslim, Imad Khalil and his stepdaughter, Pamela Moubarak, say that they were shocked to hear officials at Cornerstone Christian Schools openly informed the girl that she “can’t attend based on religious belief.”According to 13 News Now, the family publicized their alleged racial discrimination only to be told that, because the school is completely privately funded, they have the right to create their own rules, which includes rejecting students based on religious grounds, according to the Texas Private Schools Association.
“It was very okay for me to be Muslim and I didn’t think it was going to be a problem,” Moubarak said. “So, they just got the paper and they closed it, ‘Sorry, we can’t have you here.’”
“This is actually happening here in San Antonio, guys,” Khalil added. “I mean, I couldn’t believe it when she called me. She called me crying, saying this is what happened and I was like ‘no way.’ For this to happen in my hometown to my stepdaughter, it just, it blew my mind. She’s been here only, guys, for 3 days. Okay? This is her welcome to San Antonio.”
Khalil explained that Moubarak is an American citizen who was born here but moved to Lebanon before recently returning. Of course, the video was intended to garner sympathy as well as paint the Christian school and the entire city of San Antonio as Islamophobic, as well as portray Islam as inherently tolerant. However, both assumptions are fundamentally false.
Still, it’s easy to be fooled by Khalil and Moubarak’s likable exterior. However, they are merely secular Muslims at best and, according to the Quran itself, disbelievers at worst. By simply attempting to befriend Christians and tolerate their religious principles, this Muslim family has committed apostasy and will abide in hell, per Allah’s command.
Quran (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”
Quran (5:51) – “O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.”
Quran (5:80) – “You will see many of them befriending those who disbelieve; certainly evil is that which their souls have sent before for them, that Allah became displeased with them and in chastisement shall they abide.”
Not only has Christianity been the basis for the world’s most prosperous, freest, and tolerant civilization in history, its benevolence has opened the doors for other ideologies to invade. On the other hand, Islam has established the most violent, oppressive, and intolerant of civilizations, leading the mass slaughter of over 270 million non-Muslims since its founding nearly 1,400 years ago.
Of course, while the private Christian school has every legal right to reject non-believers like Moubarak, even more so, it has the religious duty to keep every Islamic influence away from its establishments and students.
According to the Quran, it is the responsibility of every Muslim to slay every last unbeliever who refuses to submit to Islam. In fact, there are over 100 verses in the Quran mandating bigotry, persecution, and violence against unbelievers, especially Christians.
Although the Quran compels violence, many Muslims in the West use their demands for Sharia-compliance as a form of jihad. Whether this family knows it or not, that is exactly what they’re doing. Islam expects all others to accept, respect, and even appease it but refuses even the most basic of human rights to religious minorities living under its laws.
