US High School Recites Pledge In Arabic: “One Nation Under Allah”


Well now, here is evidence of what I've been saying all along and that is that you cannot be religiously neutral. It just can't happen. Religion is at our very core and if we will not honor the true and living God as God, then we will fill that vacuum with a false god. Exhibit A: Rocky Mountain High School in Colorado. Outrage is building over the fact that students were encouraged to recite the Pledge of Allegiance over the loudspeaker in Arabic replacing "one nation under God" with "one nation under Allah."

The school's principal, Tom Lopez, is standing by his decision to allow the pledge after receiving a flood of complaints from parents outraged over the incident. He claims to not be pushing and Islamic agenda.

Lopez told Fox News, "These students love this country. They were not being un-American in trying to do this. They believed they were accentuating the meaning of the words as spoken regularly in English."

Danielle Clark, communications director of the Poudre School District, said "We understand not everybody would agree with the students' choice. We've heard there are some who are upset."

On the other hand, she said she received one email from a person who "thought it was a great thing."

Catch that? In all of those that responded, Clark got one email that thought this was a "great thing!" Is this action backwards or what? Parents in Colorado, I'm warning you to get your children out of the public school system. This will continue to happen more and more.

As for the pledge, well look I'm not necessarily against it, but understand that it was composed by Francis Bellamy, a Socialist, who used Christian language to promote the idea of distribution of economic resources. That's redistribution of wealth by government friends. That is the enemy of freedom in this country and that is what Barack Obama promotes.

As Christians, we are to have only One God and our King is King Jesus, not Allah.

The Coloradoan reported:

"(Nuha) Kapatayes is one among a couple dozen members of the student-initiated Cultural Arms Club, which seeks to "destroy the barriers, embrace the cultures" that exist at not just Rocky Mountain High School, but also within the community. Members in November recited the Pledge in Spanish, sparking intense debate about whether saying the words of the Pledge in any language other than English was unpatriotic.

Despite "rude" comments from classmates who disagreed with the November recital and anticipated "resistance" this week, Cultural Arms Club members decided to go forward with translating the Pledge into Arabic. They have plans for translating it into American Sign Language, Korean and possibly Chinese.

"No matter what language it's said in, pledging your allegiance to the United States is the same in every language," said sophomore CAC member Skyler Bowden."


Technically Skyler is correct. The language doesn't matter. The substance does. Allah has not been a part of the founding of the United States, except to be a thorn in our side from the very beginning, which we attempted to deal with during the Barbary Wars.

"I've been shocked with prejudicial statements that have been made," said Lopez.

Principal Lopez referred to the parents' outrage as having "suspicion and fear expressed" in their minds, along with "some hate."    

"When they pledge allegiance to United States, that's exactly what they're saying," Lopez said. "They're just using another language as their vehicle."

He claims that when one cites the pledge in Arabic that Allah is the word used for God, but that is not true. It is a proper name for their false deity, much like the God of the Bible's is Yahweh. In other words, this is not a generic rendering of the word "God." It is specific. Principal Lopez is simply naïve.

I'll just remind you that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) are the ones demanding that Muslims get special treatment in public schools, even granting that their students be allowed to pray and be excused from class for it. They have also passed out literature to teachers on the Islamic ideology and bashed schools for promoting off campus Bible studies. Yes, my friends, Islamists have an agenda here, whether Lopez does or not.

The parents were right to be outraged and if they truly love their children, they should do everything they can to get them out of the indoctrination centers of public "education" and teach them at home.

    Imbeciles. Christianity, Judaism and Islam all come from the same religious tradition. Yahweh is the Hebrew word for God,the English word for same. Allah is simply the Arabic word for God. Read a book sometime.

  • Anthony Pendleton

    This man should be fired immediately!

  • Timbar

    Even if Allah is a specific name, it is the arabic name for the god of Abraham. In other words, if Allah doesn't mean "god" in the generic sense, it still refers to YHWH. Muslims believe in most of the Old Testament too.

  • Dylan Goble

    Allah means god.. If you get pissed over this you are insane. Why is it okay to have one form of god in it and not the other? It's a religiously free country

  • LonesomeDove

    So...this guy is claiming 'God' is a false deity, and "Jesus King of Kings" is the one TRUE god? But wasn't he the SON of God? This is getting totally screwed up - who is who?

  • Tom Brite

    Isn't Allah the Arabic word for "God?"

    • Ray_Downen

      Are citizens of the U.S.A. Arabic in loyalty and religion? Allah in Arabic refers to THEIR god who is in no way related to the living God loved and served by Jews and Christians. It's a scandal that this school leader would ask young people to speak of a nation "under Allah." Every Muslim teacher and school administrator needs to be outed.

    • mike lopez

      yes Tom, the word Allah is tha name of God in Arabic ad Arameo and hebreo which are arabic language dialects ,and means: AL ILAH (The God) and when the say Elohim ,allahum; is a to say my or our God..and the Arabi Jews and Christians call God Allah,and Islam means submission to God if the believer believes in Allah the God,and if some one is submitted to Satan he is muslim to Satan, and if one is sobmitted to Jesus, ,He is muslim to Jesus and not to Allah,to whom Jesus is submitted to.and Allah the God says : who seeks another religion which is not the submission to Him (Islam) will not be never accepted from him and in the last life wil be from the losers..
      The true followers of Jesus and Moses Teachings are submitted to the God Allah, and when any of them says that Allah is the Evil or satan, they are behaving against Jesus and Moses teachings in the Gospel and the Torah..

    One nation under Allah? Who is Allah? He is not the God we know in the Christian religion. This is all wrong!

  • Sam Muhho

    I am a Syrian-American Christian and believe this article is ridiculous. You do realize that "Allah" is simply Arabic for God? Both Christians and Muslims in the Middle East and even Arabic-speaking Jewish communities use Allah. The term predates Islam and is even linguistically related to the Hebrew "Elohim" which is a pluralistic form of the singular term for God, "elah." This has nothing to do with enspousing "anti-American" takeovers. Stop this paranoia, it's a shame that western Christians have stooped to this level of ignorance and it reflects badly on Christian intellect. The real enemies are Saudi Arabia-based Wahabis, not normal, everyday Muslims. Know that the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood was literally created by criminal elements in western governments for their geopolitical, imperialist designs in the Middle East. This goes back to the 1950s with the former leader of the Brotherhood, Said Ramadan, consorting with the CIA and even meeting with President Eisenhower with rare photos of this available. This was even in the Wall Street Journal, once. The establishment plays on the delicate political and religious lines in the Middle East in order to target countries according to their interests.

  • LittleRoot_48

    Obviously this "naive" (if that be the case) principal is a "useful tool" of the islamists in the area. Where in the pledge of allegiance is any "reference to government redistribution of wealth?" LIBERTY and JUSTICE for ALL doesn't constitute redistribution of WEALTH. I have to wonder if that "one email" saying this was a "good thing" was from the current occupant of the Oval Office. LOL

  • Calvinius

    Allah is, in fact, the Arabic word for God. Christians in Syria, Egypt and Lebanon, for example, say "Allah" when they pray to God.

    • Ray_Downen

      I'd certainly like to see some authority agree with this claim. I think Calvinius is mistaken. We have perfectly good names for God and Allah is not one of them.

    • Calvinius

      It's not a matter of opinion, it's just linguistics. "God" is Arabic is "Allah". Just like how in Greek the word is "Deus" and in German it's "Gott".

    • Ray_Downen

      It's your opinion that "allah" in Arabic simply means "god." But the god which is Allah is nothing at all like the living God who created our universe. Is there some reason young people should be taught to respect Allah while they are being taught to disrespect the living God? Why in the name of common sense would we replace the English word "god" with the Arabic word "Allah" in a pledge of allegiance? I owe no allegiance to Allah, the moon god of Arabia. I owe allegiance to Jehovah, the Creator God of the universe.

    • Calvinius

      Again, it's not a matter of opinion. It's a matter of linguistics.

  • Guest

    Allah means Al Ilah. The God, as one would use The Lord, in the west. This is the same God of christian scripture. Jews and Christians have used it aswell. Before Yah, was used in the bible, god was actually called "el" which simply means "God".

    Yah means life, and could be related to several things, either a fertility god that was forgotten and seen as god later, or esoteric interpretations, such as that of gnostic directions, mandeanism, animism etc. Jesus ofcourse states that he is the truth, way and life.

    So each time you are saying "hallelujah" that is actually not the original praise. Hallelu-el, is the original. Arabicspeakers jews, christian and muslim use Alhamdulillah.

    Peace Be With You.

    • Ray_Downen

      I'm certainly not going to peacefully allow such foolishness to go unchallenged. It is not true that Jehovah and Yahweh are inappropriate names for God. It is not in any way true that Allah is an acceptable name for God. Not in any language. Never by any Jew or Christian. Muslims worship Allah. Christians do not.

    • Calvinius

      You're the one being stubbornly foolish. Do you really not understand that every language has a different word for "God"?

    • TheSotSays

      That' must be why we have a knowing little basket like you on the payroll at 25 cents an hour.

      I can picture your poor old mother over in the corner cleaning the stool softener out of her bong and telling everyone how bright you were as a child.

    • Ray_Downen

      Is there some reason why students in U.S.A. schools should pledge allegiance to an Arabic god? If the pledge is in English why would any patriot want to substitute an Arabic word even if it did as claimed merely mean "god"? And why would any citizen of this nation want to pledge allegiance in a foreign language? Logic forbids.

  • Louie Rey

    The clock is ticking everybody. Don't look now but the greatest threat to America is not idiots like this Lopez guy, it's the political correctness that allows morons like him to get away with this crap. That sound you hear is our Founding Fathers spinning in their graves.

  • Heidi

    You do realize that God=Allah.

    Besides that the term"God" is NOT the name of the one true god. Perhaps many of you "Christians" have forgotten to read your scriptures.

    Oh and thank you for bringing up the Barbary wars - the Treaty of Tripoli that claims the U.S. isn't a "Christian" nation (the 11th point), yet it is forgotten to mention that this was written by a Jew. Look it up.

    If you look at WHY we (the U.S. and the Western World) have been in the mess in the Middle East, you will find the Jewish hand in ALL of it.

    Why is it that we must only focus on Islam, and instead realize that it is always the Jews with the fundamental Muslims and Christians that they (the Jews) are able to use against one another.
    Muslims at least BELIEVE that Jesus Christ was a Prophet of God (Elohim). Whereas, the Jews believe Jesus' mother was a whore, and that Christ is boiling in Hot Excrement in Hell. Look up the Talmud.

    FREE PALESTINE!
    FREE THE AMERICAS!
    FREE EUROPE!
    FREE THE WORLD!

    • Ray_Downen

      No, Heidi, God is not Allah. No way. Allah is an enemy of Jehovah God. The names are not of the same person. One is a false god. One is the living God. Palestine was given every opportunity to become a good neighbor to Israel and showed with no question that they would have nothing to do with being a good neighbor. What they want to do is to destroy Israel. Heidi is a propagandist for Islam who speaks of freedom and means submission to their false god. -- Ray.

    • Heidi

      Umm, yes Ray, actually it is. I'm sorry if you don't know how to read - but God in Arabic means Allah. Perhaps you don't realize that Arabic is the language that it is preferred their scriptures be read in.

      I am not an advocate of Islam, I am a Christian. I believe in Jesus Christ, and like him I denounce the Jews.

      St. John Chapter 8

      12 ¶Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

      13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.

      14 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.

      15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

      16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.

      17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.

      18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.

      19 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.

      20 These
      words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no
      man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.

      21 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.

      22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.

      23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

      24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

      25 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.

      26 I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.

      27 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.

      33 ¶They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

      34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

      35 And the servant bideth not in the house for ever: but the Son bideth ever.

      36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

      37 I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.

      38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.

      39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

      40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

      41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.

      42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

      43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

      44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

      45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

      46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

      47 He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

      48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?

      49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.

      Revelations

      2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

      3:9 Behold,
      I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews,
      and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

    • Ray_Downen

      I know how to read, and I know also that Allah is the particular name of the moon god worshiped by Muslims. God is never referred to as Allah. His name is Yahweh, or in Greek, Jehovah. As for Jesus hating Jews, we do well to remember that HE came to earth AS a Jew, and lived and died as a Jew and calls for us to love every person, Jew or Gentile.

      The persons Jesus in Revelation is said to hate were ones who claimed to be Jews BUT WERE NOT. Did your reading ability slip up a little there? We need to read carefully and seek to understand exactly what is written. I do so. Obviously that's also your intent. By the way, Heidi, I prefer to read the Bible in modern languages rather than in dialects and speech patterns of the time of King James and Shakespeare. God understands even Old English, of course, but we moderns find it awkward rather than impressive.

    • Calvinius

      The "moon god" nonsense is pure fiction. It was invented by the author Robert Morey in 1994.

    • Ray_Downen

      You doubt that Mohammed lived long ago? His writing about Allah was not done in 1994. His invented god is obviously not the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, just as the religion/government he began differs from every other religion and system of government. The threat to our liberty didn't begin in 1994!

    • Calvinius

      Clearly Mohammed lived hundreds of years ago. But Mohammed never said anything about a "moon god".

    • Ray_Downen

      No, he called the moon god Allah, and didn't mention that he was a moon god created by fellow-members of the tribe from which Mohammed sprang.

    • Calvinius

      Again, the "moon god" bullcrap was made up in 1994 by Robert Morey. Muslims have never believed in a "moon god."

    • Ray_Downen

      An expert speaks? Islam teaches a god totally unlike the God of the Bible. I wonder if Calvinius is making up a 1994 "make up by Robert Morey." What I'm sure of is that Allah is not God. They're total opposites. One is love. The other is hateful and hating. So for young people or people of any age to swear allegiance to Allah is hateful to the God of love.

    • Heidi

      No he did not, his Father is God, and His Mother came from the House of Judah.
      Even Jews will conceded that "Jew" does NOT equal "Judah".

      The Jews are Edomites from the Line of Esau. Their Lineage Ruled in the time of Jesus Christ, and it was these imposters that he was denouncing.
      Herod was an Edomite, before the House of Israel began their own rule, Esau and his children ruled the land. But Esau wasn't called by God, and he had no favor with God. Yet he and his family were rich. The Edomites began to marry into the House of Israel and subverted it.
      Look at the Royal Houses of Europe --- every one of them has defiled themselves with the Edomites -- so much so, they cannot even be considered Caucasians.

    • Ray_Downen

      "Jews" is just a name for all descendants of Israel. It describes men and women of many Israelite tribes, including but not limited to Judah. I know no reason to believe it's true that "The Jews are Edomites from the line of Esau." Nor did Jesus denounce "Jews." As for the royal houses of Europe, what do they have to do with anything?

    • Heidi

      The Messiah's Father, is God the Father, through His adoptive father Joseph He is of the line of Judah, and from his mother's lineage He is of the line of Judah. And rightfully heir to the throne.

      He was NOT a Jew - And the Scriptures PROVE that.

      I understand what you are saying about needing the Scriptures in modern language -- however, some of the meanings have been changed, by changing the words.

      St John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    • Ray_Downen

      The later translations simply better translate the Bible into words used by people today. Jesus was a Jew as that word is commonly used. His mother and father also were Jews, as were His apostles.

    • Heidi

      No that is a lie. Many Biblical scholars are finding that words have been translated that don't mean what they should.

      Jesus was not a Jew.

      "The best known 18th century editions of the New Testament in English are the Rheims (Douai) Edition and the King James Authorized Edition. The Rheims (Douai) translation of the New Testament into English was first printed in 1582 but the word "Jew" did not appear in it."

      "The King James Authorized translation of the New Testament into English was begun in 1604 and first published in 1611. The word "Jew" did not appear in it either. The word "Jew" appeared in both these well known editions in their 18th century revised versions for the first times."

      "Judah was the largest and the most influential of the twelve tribes with the governing right. Jacob prophesied it would maintain its pre-eminence until Shiloh, or Messiah, came. He would then take headship and receive the allegiance of true spiritual Israel as Isaiah 9:6-7 foretold. Matthew 1 and Luke 3 trace Jesus' human lineage to David, Judah, Jacob and Abraham. Jesus took the sceptre from Judah and
      we who receive Him as Messiah give Him our allegiance."

      "In the days of His flesh few of the citizens of Judea were Judahites. Some belonged to one of the other tribes of Israel, and many were descendants of Esau (Edomites) who had assimilated and become co-religionists with the Judahites and remnants of the other tribes in the hybrid religion of Pharisaism developed during the captivity in Babylon. This is the religion of the Talmud is called Judaism today; it was condemned by Jesus since it is the antithesis of the Mosaic Law and the prophets and makes the Word of God of no effect (Matthew 15:1-9)."

      John 7:1, "After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for He would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill Him."

    • Ray_Downen

      The word "Jew" is used to refer to all descendants of Israel whether they were from Judah or Israel. Why tell us all about this? What do you intend to prove? The later translations are by far superior to the earliest ones in letting us know what the writers put on papyrus under directions from God. I assert that Jesus lived on earth as a descendant of David we call king of the JEWS.

  • 1LTLos

    Ladies and Gentlemen - Write directly to this moron principal directly to his school address and those of you whose children are at this school, inform the principal that you will be home schooling your children and are suggesting to your neighbors that they home school their kids too. Schools are a breeding place for the left - I am a college professor and am looking to get out of that hell hole called academe! Get your kids out teach them the Bill of Rights and Constitution, join NRA, take up the shooting sports with them as a way to explain American history and why our nation is unique!! Get your children the hell away from from people like Lopez. I am also Mejicano and there is nothing worse than a Yes Man Mexican - Sell out!

    "They believed they were accentuating the meaning of the words as spoken
    regularly in English.” What the HELL does that even mean? Liberalism
    mumbo-jumbo BS, is what that is. A couple of dozen students verses the rest -
    there is the liberal way of the minority ruling the majority. And if Lopez is
    "shocked" by the prejudicial statements, why isn't he "shocked" at his own
    behavior indoctrinating religion into the school system? Where is his
    allegiance to his leftist agenda to rid all religion from schools? Once again,
    the contradicting, agenda driven left can't see their own glaring hypocrisy.
    Lopez is stupid - like all liberals... just mentally deficient or diseased. His
    actions are treasonous, period. The man should be removed - parents should
    demand the school board to removal his dumbass.
