Muslim Girl Scout Troop coming to your town soon


Can you imagine if we set up a Christian Girl Scout Troop? If we had a special celebration when they took their first Communion complete with a special patch? I don’t want to even think about what is happening with the boys and their scout troops. Note the paragraph that I highlighted in the post.

As-Salaam-o-alaikum!

Welcome to the official website of the Islamic Committee on Girl Scouting.
We hope this website will make it easier for Girl Scouts, Troop Leaders and Parents to access information, provide ideas and learn about upcoming events.

I’ll wager that Robert Baden-Powell (1857-1941), founder of the Scouting movement, never imagined that a Girl Scout troop in the United States would be celebrating little girls donning the headscarf – but that’s what happened at a recent event held by theMuslim Scouts of Michigan at the Islamic House of Wisdom in Dearborn Heights, Michigan. Tarek El-Tablawy of The Associated Press describes the scenewhen 43 girls, ages 8 to 11, attended a Takleef Festival, described by the Arab-American News as “a celebration of girls committing to hijab.”

The girls line up in two groups — one dressed in white, the other in pink gowns and hijabs. On stage, they approach a copy of the Quran held by another girl. Gently kissing its spine, they pass underneath as parents in the audience snap away with digital cameras. “That’s my baby,” beams one father. …

Organizers of the Takleef celebration are well aware of the spiritual and cultural challenges these girls face in deciding to wear the hijab. “A couple of these girls are taking the veil before their mothers are,” says 38-year-old Ali Ibrahim, one of the scout volunteers organizing the celebration. “We even have one girl whose parents are not convinced and are trying to get her to take off the veil. May God guide her.”

A song airs over the loudspeakers during the play, summing up, in Simon and Garfunkel-like acoustical melodies, a Muslim girl’s answer to criticism: The hijab “is a simple cloth to preserve her dignity/So lift the veil from your heart/And see the heart of purity.”

    I, too, was a Brownie and then a Girl Scout. I remember that it was a Christian organization? Or at least affiliated with a local Church that would host them. It grieves me how we have lost our way as a Nation.

      I agree as well. Now churches and I think schools can no longer host these organizations. But I am sure the Muslim scouts can meet in a mosque, no questions asked.

    Well, I’m not surprised. For decades now, schools and universities have been teaching students that Islam is “just another religion.”

    Multiculturalism is destroying Western civilization.

      Yet there are rave reviews how this proves how American this makes the Muslim kids. Just another organization to separate us.

        Diversion, division, separation = confusion. It’s getting to where what I read and hear is like going to the fish market and trying to remember the difference between dressed and undressed. Hope I don’t get it home after ordering it undressed and expect it to be scaled, skinned, and filleted. What? I meant dressed. Now though it might come with a hijab. 🙂

    The Boy Scouts and Girl Scout Christian background has long been forgotten, especially when they allowed gays in…my brothers were Boy Scouts and I was a Brownie and a Girl Scout and back then things were just different…how sad and how far we have fallen as a society, just saying…Things just aren’t sacered or what they use to be anymore. sigh.

      Many of the stories out there are spun to show how Americanized this does to the Muslim children. The farthest from the truth. It segregates and instills non traditional american values. I too was a girl scout, and many happy memories. Now an extension of politics.
