MADRASSAS FOR AMERICANS (Islamofascism's penetration)
July 9, 2008
MADRASSAS FOR AMERICANS: On today's show we were joined by Rep. Michael McCaul
(R-TX) and producer Ericka Pertierra, who discussed the new documentary "Karachi
Kids." The film tracks two brothers from Atlanta whose father, a Pakistani
immigrant, shipped them off to a Pakistani madrassa and informed them their
return was conditional upon memorizing the entire Koran. The boys, their father
felt, had become too absorbed in American culture.
In 2004, the
filmmakers discovered that the boys were being held against their will at the
Jamia Binoria Institute in Karachi, one of Pakistan's most radical madrassas.
Three years later, the filmmakers returned to discover that they had both become
fully radicalized, and were readily denouncing America.
McCaul offered a sobering statistic: An estimated 600 American boys are
currently being "educated" in Pakistani madrassas. Upon graduation, these youths
return to America with the intent of spreading their message of radical Islam
... or worse.
