Pearson plc, publisher of biased Islamist World History textbook, heavily promotes “TOP ISLAMIC FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS – Global sharia compliant assets have grown to $1,267 BN”.

Florida Family Association’s recent research has revealed some startling information:

  • Pearson plc, publisher of the Islamist friendly World History textbook, has extensive business relationships with wealthy Islamist financial institutions.
  • Volusia County School officials launched a misinformation campaign on the media and public.  This campaign brought on by the community organizer from the United States Department of Justice brought harm to open government and the people’s right to know the truth.

Pearson plc has extensive business relationships with wealthy Islamist financial institutions.

Prentice Hall’s World History textbook presents a biased, imbalanced view of Islam to high school students.  “The book has a 36-page chapter on Islam but no chapters on Christianity or Judaism,” said Florida State Representative Rep. Ritch Workman, in Townhall, about the Prentice World History textbook. “It’s remarkably one-sided."

Pearson plc owns Prentice Hall.  Pearson plc also owns the Financial Times.  The Financial Times operates two subscription based web sites, FT.com and TheBanker.com, both of which heavily promote “TOP ISLAMIC FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS – Global sharia compliant assets have grown to $1,267 BN”.  Posted below are photo images of the Financial Times and The Banker web sites with these promotions.

The United States Department of Justice personnel who influenced the Volusia County School District is a liberal community organizer whose motives had little to do with security issues alleged by the school district.

The Volusia County School board cancelled a public hearing regarding the textbook scheduled for November 5, 2013 after the United States Department of Justice weighed in on the issue.  Nancy H. Walt, Volusia County Schools Community Information Services Director, issued a news release regarding this cancelled public hearing.  The release stated in part:  This district was contacted by the U.S. Department of Justice just prior to the board meeting scheduled at 4 p.m.  The nature of this information raised safety concerns… 

Ms. Walt’s news release mischaracterized the nature of the communications from the United States Department of Justice (US DOJ) personnel.  Notes provided to Florida Family Association in response to a public record request show that Dr. Margaret Smith, Superintendent of Schools, “phone call log” states:  "She (Mildred Duprey de Robles – US DOJ) wanted to alert us to the possibility of large crowds, possible conflict at today’s meeting with state and national Muslim representatives expected to appear and speak in support of textbook.  DOJ has alerted VCSO and DeLand Police to be on alert for security and large crowd measures.  Name of state level Muslim rep is Hassan Shibley, 813-541-4321.  Said we should use this event as a teaching tool.

Ms. Walt’s news release did not disclose the name of the US DOJ department or personnel involved in the communication.  The US DOJ department was “Community Affairs” as noted in the Dr. Smith’s phone call log.    The name of the US DOJ personnel making the call was, Mildred Duprey de Robles, who is a liberal community organizer.

Online searches revealed that Mildred Duprey de Robles, United States Department of Justice Community Affairs, represented the interests of:

  • Trayvon Martin protestors who conducted a sit in the Florida Capitol.   The Washington Times posting reports “Trayvon Martin "Dream Defenders" champion Marxism, backed by DoJ.  DOJ-CRS agent Mildred I. Duprey de Robles and FL State Rep. Alan B. Williams of course are constantly on scene to make sure that their group of rabble rousers aren’t picked on or have their feelings hurt. This is a critical moment right now; if they are not removed from the Capitol now then the problem will get out of control as their numbers grow and this will become another Occupy Wall Street.”
  • LGBT organizations.  A U.S. Department of Justice news release reports“Mildred Duprey de Robles, conciliation specialist with the Justice Department’s Community Relations Service, led the discussion on ways for members of the LGBT communities to best work with federal law enforcement to identify and report hate crimes and bias-motivated incidents that specifically impact those communities.”
  • Anti-Sons of the Confederate Veteran organizations activists who oppose public display of the Confederate Flag.  The South Florida Times reports:  “The United States Department of Justice has begun monitoring the escalating controversy over the display of the Confederate battle flag in Homestead.  Justice Department officials would not comment on their specific plans, but civil rights organizations say they will hold a press conference on the steps of Homestead City Hall on June 11.   ‘I’m not in any position to comment,’ said Mildred I. Duprey de Robles, a conciliation specialist who is based in the Miami office of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Community Relations Service.  De Robles made her comments while attending a strategy meeting of civil rights groups and community leaders in Homestead on Thursday, May 28.  Organizers held the meeting to map out plans on how to block the display of the controversial flag at publicly sanctioned events in the city.”

The above information regarding the nature of the US DOJ's communications and personnel does not appear to have been communicated to the press or public.  This information may have been withheld from school board members.

Additionally, there is little doubt that Florida Department of Education officials (who approved the World History textbook) and Volusia County Schools board members are not aware of the significant influence that wealthy Islamist organizations have with Pearson plc the publisher of the textbook.

Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send to Florida Department of Education officials and Volusia County Schools board members which contains the above information and urges them to stop using the Pearson plc World History textbook in schools.
