"An online petition has been landing in the inboxes of pro-Israel Americans this month, many of whom are expressing shock at the Portland public school system for allowing a Palestinian hip-hop group with offensive lyrics justifying terrorism and comparing Israelis to Nazis to perform at a city high school."

"The group, named DAM, was invited to perform at Lincoln High School last month. Simply knowing the band’s name, DAM – blood in Arabic and Hebrew – raises serious questions why school officials would position this group in front of impressionable students. Their lyrics raise even more questions about the judgment of these school officials."

This doesn't belong on a public high school campus. Students are reporting that they no longer feel safe at their own school after the anti-Israeli sentiment that has been expressed following the presentation of this militant group.

The indoctrination going on in our public schools at tax payers' expense truly knows no limits.

It's inappropriate, but compared to how much time kids are indoctrinated into flag-waving propaganda crap, it seems pretty harmless. I wouldn't have booked this particular group for that venue, however.

Agreed. This is not appropriate for an American high school.

Who thinks pride in your country is crap? A Democrat?
How much has this flag waving and all that been increasing again the last twenty years? I think mostly left wing crap is being taught and influencing kids through education the last few decades; that is why we have these entitlement monsters thinking everything should be for free instead of working for it.
Merry Christmas to you and God Bless America while you are at it. :-)

Pride in your country's virtues is not crap. Pride that refuses to distinguish between your country's virtues and faults certainly is crap.

Of course you think left-wing crap is influencing everyone. That's because you think someone like Obama is actually left-wing.

I've met actual left-wingers. You wouldn't know one if you fell across him.

God bless America indeed...because it sure needs some help!

Of course you think left-wing crap is influencing everyone. That's because you think someone like Obama is actually left-wing. Left wing is referred to these days as the radical left which hates America, but loves drugs, class warfare and envies other people's stuff and suggests you vote other people's money to pay for your stuff.
More accurately, Obama is somewhere between a socialist and a communist to be more accurate, not just left wing.

I've met actual left-wingers. You wouldn't know one if you fell across him.
Not true, I booted one out of some apartments for reading other people's mail, cooking drugs and falsely running kids through a school district ahead of kids who applied legally.

God bless America indeed...because it sure needs some help!
We agree in a big way on that one.
