A Houston TX area High School teacher compiled an eight page handout for class entitled: “Economics/Government: Islam/Radical Islam (Did You Know)” Evidently the Foster High School teacher teaches in a School District in which a number of Multiculturalist Liberals and Muslims reside. Local news stations in the area ran pieces on the handout and the news was quite vindictive that a teacher would dare to go off the School District curriculum to teach the truth about the dark side of Islam. The Foster High School Principal even is quoted by the local news stations that the proper disciplinarian punishment will be executed against this rebel teacher.
One thing that is glaringly noticeable is the School District does not release the school teacher’s name. The news programs that caught this story also did not release the teacher’s name. BUT after much Google searching I discovered the area newspaper, the Houston Chronicle, has released the teacher’s name (One has to be a subscriber to read article now but here’s the cache version).
This is not surprising. Even the School District did not release the name, all that any local news reporter had to do was interview the students or parents at Foster High School to discover this tidbit of information.
In my book this teacher is a hero for telling the truth. There are good reasons to bury the teacher’s name which has more to do than just privacy concerns. The proliferation of Islamic purity among Muslims have led to the persecution of truth-tellers about the dark side of Islam in Western nations:
Undoubtedly Incomplete List
Geert Wilders: Founder of the Dutch “Party for Freedom”; has been quoted as saying “I don’t hate Muslims, I hate Islam.”
Ayaan Hirsi Ali: Somali-born Dutch activist and politician; has written that “We are at war with Islam,” not just “radical Islam” and it must be defeated; married to British historian Niall Ferguson (though that’s probably not related)
Morris Sadek: Egyptian-American Coptic Christian; he spread the anti-Islam video “Innocence of Muslims” that sparked violent protests in several Muslim countries.
Carsten Juste & Flemming Rose: Editor-in-chief and cultural editors at Jyllands-Posten when the paper chose to publish cartoons mocking Mohammed.
Kurt Westergaard: Cartoonist who contributed to the Jyllands-Posten controversy; his turban-as-bomb drawing became the most famous of the cartoons.
Molly Norris: American cartoonist who proposed “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” as a protest against both censorship and the idea that images of Mohtammed (sic) should be forbidden
Editor’s Compiled List
Theo Van Gogh: 11/2/04 Theo van Gogh -1957 to 2004. … Dutch filmmaker and journalist Theo van Gogh was slashed in the neck and shot to death in a terrorist attack by a militant Islamist in Amsterdam this morning. … Van Gogh had received death threats after making a film about spousal abuse in Islam and was supposed to be under police protection. … Theo Van Gogh also wrote a book on Islam called “Allah Weet Het Beter”,”Allah Knows Best,” detailing the Islamisation of Europe. The book is being translated into english. Van Gogh’s articles on militant Islam and Muslims warned of the mortal danger of tolerating Islamo facism (sic) in the West under a misguided policy of political correctness.

Wafa Sultan: Shockingly, on U.S. soil, a citizen of this country has had to go into hiding due to threats from an organized group – radical Islamists:
Dr. Wafa Sultan has been forced to go into hiding with her family following a fatwa (religious edict) from an Islamic scholar, according to Omedia. Sultan faces the fatwa following a recent debate on Al-Jazeera in which she challenged Egyptian Islamist Talat Rheim over Dutch cartoons of Mohammed, who Muslims revere as a prophet. Sultan argued that Denmark had the right to print the cartoons. (BigPicWeblog.com – 2008)
Nonie Darwish: For thirty years, I grew up hearing similar threats from Islamic sheikhs across the Middle East. They told us, “You insult the prophet Mohammed, you die” — as the Islamic law of Sharia requires. There are still Sharia books bought and sold in America; they clearly say: “The penalty for insulting the prophet is death, even if one repents.” … (Gatestone Institute – 2012) …
The breaking news this week is that apostate author and speaker Nonie Darwish was scheduled to speak at Princeton and Columbia Universities this week (on the threat of radical Islam).
Apparently, due to pressure from Muslim groups, the Princeton group, Tigers for Israel, withdrew their invitation at the last minute claiming that they were not aware of Darwish’s views on Islam.
As for Columbia, keep in mind, this is the same university that hosted Mahmoud Ahmadinejad not so long ago. I don’t get it. Ahmadinejad can speak at Columbia, but not Darwish, a woman who lives under death threats? (FouseSquak – 2009)
Walid Shoebat: … Walid, like so many others, joined the PLO and became indoctrinated with their goal of murdering Jews and destroying Israel. He spent time in a Jerusalem jail.
Walid gave his heart to Christ, and renounced Allah, and Islam. This facilitated death threats against him and his family. In spite of personal risk, he placed himself in the hands of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and embraced his new faith and wanted to share the truth God had shown him with others. (Christians For Israel)
Pamela Geller: Atlas readers are well aware of the steady stream of threats, hate mail, and death fatwas I receive. It comes with the job; it’s an occupatonal (sic) hazard. Truthtellers, beware. Of course the muslim groups and their jackbooted tools in the media ignore the calls for my demise, and when forced to address them, it’s always the same thing: the extremists can’t help themselves, hell, I am asking it for by exposing Islamic jihad.

Brigitte Gabriel: Brigitte Gabriel has fearlessly faced down critics, death threats, and political correctness, and is one of the most sought-after terrorism experts in the world. They Must Be Stopped is her clarion call to action. Gabriel thoroughly addresses the historical and religious basis of terrorism, its (sic) frightening encroachment into societies around the world, and its abuses of democracy in the name of religion.

Fjordman: Fjordman has paid the price for having the courage to stand up for what is right and true. It is incredible, that in today’s Europe, one can hardly dare to stand up ones culture and country without undergoing intense scrutiny, harassment, and sometimes even persecution from the authorities. Not to mention risking death at the hands of the Muslims hordes who those same authorities have allowed to over run (sic) the borders and flood the continent in their millions. (Dc Gazette – 2/1/15)
… Fjordman has been a pseudonym that was exposed to the public because of Breivik’s massacre. Why was a pseudonym necessary?
… The government is the one hand. The other hand is that Islamic hatred causes the constant threat of violence and death threats by Muslims living in Europe as immigrants or as 2nd or 3rd generation Muslims adopting a European nation BUT demanding to live the culture of intolerant Islam.
This means even under a pseudonym Fjordman had to have bodyguards to protect his life from Muslim death threats. (NCCR – 6/14/12)
There are more but moving on.
This long yet incomplete list of people threatened with death brings me back to the disciplined Foster High School teacher from the Houston area.
It is not surprising the eight page handout story was broke to the public by a Muslim High School student who whined to their parents about the mean things reported exposing the Islam found in the Quran, Hadith and Sira. The parents duly complained to the local chapter of Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Houston:
It [i.e. CAIR-Houston] is a sub-chapter of CAIR-Texas, which was founded by Ghassan Elashi. He was later convicted for illegal transactions to Syria and Libya. He and two bothers (sic) were also convicted of financing Hamas.
Elashi’s company, InfoCom Corp, gave about $270,000 to senior Hamas official Mousa Abu Marzouk through his wife up until 2001 when the Holy Land Foundation was shut down. Marzouk’s wife also made a $250,000 investment in Elashi’s company.
ALL of the Mainstream Media (MSM) reporting on the eight page handout entitled “Economics/Government: Islam/Radical Islam (Did You Know)” made Muslims a victim rather than hailing the teacher as a hero willing to go out on a limb to expose Islam. They made a point to report that the handout was not sourced BUT that he evidently got his info from the Internet from “anti-Islam websites”. So if you expose Islam’s dark side you are an anti-Islam Muslim hating racist Islamophobe. I consider myself a person who exposes Islam and yet I hold ZERO animus toward Muslims that are seriously self-deluded that Islamic holy writings (e.g. Quran, Hadith and Sira) assert any kind of peaceful nature for Islam.
My guess is Herby Woolverton might be added to any list of people threatened with death from Muslims for telling the truth but in the Muslim mind – insulted Islam, Allah and Mo.
Here are the attitude of news reporting by some television sources:

A teacher at Foster High School in Richmond, Texas, is accused of handing out an unapproved, eight-page handout on “radical Islam” to students. The decision has resulted in backlash from the Council on American-Islamic Relations, parents and the school district. The handout, titled, ”Islam/Radical Islam (Did You Know),” claims that “38 percent of Muslims believe people that leave the faith should be executed” and states that Islam doesn’t “tolerate” homosexuality, divorce and other behavior.
Terms like “Sharia law” and “Jihad” are defined in the handout, which claims there are “an estimated 190-300 million ‘radical Islam’ followers.” The teacher reportedly did not provide sourcing.
The eight-page handout also includes a section on “what to do” if taken hostage by radical Islamist.
One of the students in the class was reportedly Muslim and told her parents, who then contacted CAIR. The group then complained directly to officials at Foster High School.
In a statement to KHOU-TV, a spokesman for the Lamar Consolidated Independent School District said the district is “disappointed to learn one teacher made independent changes to a lesson plan, resulting in information being given that didn’t follow subject matter, or state and local curriculum plans.”
“Arbitrary curriculum decisions, which are clearly outside of the guidelines, won’t be tolerated,” the spokesman added.
The teacher will face “appropriate disciplinary measures,” but it wasn’t clear what that would be.
