  • Pupils asked to list the ‘reprehensible’ qualities of Jews
  • Around 5,000 children attend a network of 40 schools
  • Diagrams show children how to hack off hands and feet

Children in Britain are being taught brutal Sharia law punishments, including how
to hack off a criminal’s hand or foot.

So-called ‘weekend schools’ for Muslim pupils as young as six also teach that the penalty for gay sex is execution and that ‘Zionists’ are plotting to take over the world for the Jews.

One set textbook challenges youngsters to list the ‘reprehensible’ qualities of Jews.

Another for six-year-olds asks them to answer what happens to someone who dies who is not a believer in Islam. The answer being looked for is ‘hellfire’.

A BBC Panorama investigation, to be screened tonight, identified a network of more than 40 weekend schools teaching around 5,000 children, from age six to 18.

Teacher Pension Bombs

November 13, 2010



By on 11.12.10 @ 6:07AM

California taxpayers have almost become immune to stories about the high cost of generous defined-benefit pensions, employer-subsidized healthcare plans, job protections and degree- and seniority-based pay scales struck by the state, school districts, and affiliates of the National Education Association and American Federation of Teachers. Not even the fact that 3,090 of its retired teachers are earning more than $100,000 a year in annuity payments causes a stir.

Meet Neil Codell an Illinois educator with a $26 million state pension.

Niles Township Community High School District 219 is located in Cook County, Illinois.

School Superintendent Pay

On February 2, 2009 the Chicago Sun-Times reported that Niles Township school superintendent Neil Codell was paid $411,500 in 2008, a record for the state of Illinois. Codell took a lesser job in the school district on June 30, 2008, but did not receive a pay decrease. In fact, Codell’s contract, signed in January 2005, set his base salary at $182,500 with the option of two 20 percent raises before he retired. Also covered are 100 percent of hospitalization and major medical premiums for his entire family for 10 years after retirement, as well as $500-a-month auto allowance and a term life insurance policy for twice his salary for as long as he was employed at the school district. The Sun-Times filed an Illinois Freedom of Information Act request to inquire how Codell’s salary moved from $182,500 to $411,500, but did not receive a response. [1]

While the California teachers’ unions are effectively destroying one school system after another, an alert commenter pointed me to some even more shocking news from Illinois. Their pension system for educators is — if you can believe it — even farther off the reservation.

Using actuarial calculations from the Teachers’ Retirement System (TRS), Champion News reports that the total estimated pension liability for the top 100 retirees will equal…

Make sure you’re sitting down.

Seriously.

$887,925,790.00
You read this right. The top 100 retirees, by themselves, will cost Illinois taxpayers nearly one billion dollars.

Obama has requested a $50 billion bailout, this time for states.

Mish annihilates the proposal.

We’ve covered it before, in a general sense, here, here and here.

Certain states are broke for one reason — Public Employee Pensions.

Rather than require that certain bloated, mis-managed states cut pensions, Obama is trying to sell Congress another bailout — this one for bankrupt mini-Greece fiefdoms that are politically important to Democrats — California, New York, Illinois and Michigan.
