Nursery staff to be forced to report toddlers at risk of becoming terrorists

Nursery school employees will have a duty to report young children who are at-risk of becoming terrorists under proposed new legislation

By BEN TUFFT
Sunday 04 January 2015

Nursery staff will be forced to report toddlers at risk of becoming terrorists under plans drawn up by the Home Office.

It is part of the department’s consultation over ways to enhance its anti-terrorism strategy, Prevent.

Critics have dismissed the proposals as being unnecessarily draconian and turning staff, who are meant to be caring for youngsters, into spies.

The consultation document on the Prevent Strategy states: “Senior management and governors are expected to assess the risk of pupils being drawn into terrorism, including support for the extremist ideas that are part of terrorist ideology.”

It continues, staff are expected to “identify children at risk of being drawn into terrorism” and “challenge extremist ideas which can be used to legitimise terrorism”.

The Home Office said it would not expect the hypothetical situation of a young child being taught that non-Muslims are wicked to be ignored. Equally, anti-Semitic comments made in front of nursery workers should be reported, the department added.

But opponents of the plans are unsure how they will work in practice.
 
“It is hard to see how this can be implemented. It is unworkable. I have to say I cannot understand what they [nursery staff] are expected to do,” Davis Davis, the Conservative MP and former shadow home secretary, told the Telegraph.
“Are they supposed to report some toddler who comes in praising a preacher deemed to be extreme?

“I don’t think so. It is heavy-handed,” he added.
Childcare providers are just one of the sectors that will be affected by the new rules. Schools, colleges, universities, prisons and hospitals will all be subject to the stringent rules “to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”.

The plans are in a document submitted with the Government’s Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill, which is going through Parliament.

A Government spokesperson told The Independent: “Schools, including nurseries, have a duty of care to their pupils and staff. The new duty in the Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill, to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism will be seen in a similar way to their existing safeguarding responsibilities.

"We are not expecting teachers and nursery workers to carry out unnecessary intrusion into family life but we do expect them to take action when they observe behaviour of concern. It is important that children are taught fundamental British values in an age-appropriate way.”

Scottish primary school homework sheets that call Palestinians 'terrorists' pulled by council

Children’s coursework which refers to Palestinians as “terrorists” has been withdrawn by a council after it received angry complaints.

Eleven-year-olds at a primary school in Motherwell, Scotland, have been issued worksheets that state: “Palestinians feel they have the RIGHT to use terrorism against Israelis.”

It then asks the pupils – in classes equivalent to Year 6 level – to “describe two examples of Palestinian terrorist activities.”

Aliyah Shafiq, from Motherwell, posted the image of the homework sheet on Facebook yesterday and wrote: “How is my little sister being made to answer questions like this for her homework?

“This is completely unacceptable and has to be complained about to North Lanarkshire Council.”

She added: “Guys can I just make it clear that although the homework was given to New Stevenston Primary P7 pupils, the actual sheet is from the council and NOT the school or any teacher directly.”

An additional ‘explanatory’ sheet given to the children says: “Palestinians who live in Israel believe that it is THEIR land which is being occupied by the Israelis.

“Wars between Israel and Palestinians over this always ended in their defeat and so they have turned to terrorist methods for over 30 years.”

The image posted on social media caused many to ring or message the council to complain about the sheets, which the local authority claims were part of an “obsolete” teaching pack.

The coursework “does not pass any judgement on the subject,” it added.

Palestine and Israel have been locked in a dispute over territory for more than 66 years and the most recent war ended in August after 50 days.

At least 2,100 Palestinian people living in the densely-populated Gaza Strip including around 500 children, and 72 Israelis of which most were soldiers, had died during the war last year.

Dr Essam Hijjawi, chair of the Association of Palestinian Communities in Scotland, said: “It is unbelievable that they are giving 11-year-old pupils information asserting that our struggle for freedom is pure terrorism.”

“We ask that all materials used in schools relating to the teaching of the history of Palestine is discussed between Education Scotland and the Palestinian community,” he added, according to Common Space.

A spokesman for North Lanarkshire Council's Learning and Leisure Services said: “The homework material used was taken from a teaching pack which is now obsolete. We are contacting all schools to ensure this particular material is no longer used.

“The description of Palestinian people is entirely inappropriate and apologise unreservedly for the offence caused.”

Police stop and search nearly 300 toddlers in five years

Police have used stop and search powers on nearly 300 children under the age of five in the space of just five years, it has been reported.

Freedom of information requests made by The Sunday Times show the powers, which allow police to stop and search anyone they believe are carrying illegal drugs, weapons, stolen property or something which could be used to commit a crime, had been used on 182 children aged under five in London alone.

The police stressed that in nearly all cases recorded of toddlers being targeted under the powers they believed the children had been “exploited by an adult,” where the child had been persuaded to hide items on behalf of an adult, and that these children should be treated as vulnerable, rather than as criminals.



The controversial orders have been long been criticised amid claims the powers are routinely abused. In 2013 a quarter of all stop and searches were deemed to be unlawful, while in 2010 almost 17,000 drug searches were carried out on people under the age of 15.

Greater Manchester Police had the second highest rate of stop and search use against under-fives, with 45 cases recorded, the paper reported.

In total, 610 children under the age of 10 – and below the age of criminality - were searched under the powers across the country’s police forces.

Scotland Yard told the Sunday Times: “The searching of children under 10 represents an extremely small percentage of the Metropolitan police service’s total stop and search activity: 0.02 per cent in 2013 – 2014.

“In many cases, the young person has been exploited by an adult and persuaded to carry or conceal items on their behalf. In such cases the child would be considered to be vulnerable and in need of protection rather than dealt with under the criminal code.”

A three-year-old child from London is one of hundreds of young people in the capital who have been tipped as potential future radicals and extremists.
As reported by the Evening Standard, 1,069 people have been put in the government's anti-extremism 'Channel' process, the de-radicalisation programme at the heart of the Government's 'Prevent' strategy.

The three-year-old in the programme is from the borough of Tower Hamlets, and was a member of a family group that had been showing suspect behaviour.

Eight-year-old boy questioned after teachers mistake t-shirt slogan for Isis propaganda
THE INDEPENDENT
SUNDAY, JULY 31, 2016 6:06 PM GMT

An eight-year-old boy has been questioned by Prevent officers after his teachers mistook his T-shirt slogan for Isis propaganda, a report has claimed.

The unnamed boy wore a T-shirt with the words with the words “I want to be like Abu Bakr al-Siddique” - a key early Muslim leader in the first years after the death of Prophet Mohamed who is regarded as one of the founding fathers of Sunni Islam.

But teachers at his East London primary school mistook the slogan for praise of the self-styled Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi - the leader of Isis in Syria and Iraq.

The boy's mother said she had been contacted by a social services representative in February 2016 who said they wished to discuss the incident with the boy and she recalled the word "deradicalisation" being used.

At the interview, his parents said they were kept out of the room as the boy was asked questions about Isis - which he did not know anything about.

The child later said he had also been asked about his religious beliefs such as whether he believed Christians go to hell when they die and what he liked to watch on TV.

The mother said she had been told by social services that they had recorded a "form of caution" against him but she did not know whether this was a formal caution and how it would affect him in the future.

At eight, the boy is below the age of criminal responsibility.

Prevent is the Home Office's anti-extremism programme which aims to target young people in particular who are at risk of radicalisation.

The incident was one of several highlighted in a report by human rights charity, Rights Watch UK, as evidence of Muslim pupils being made to feel unwelcome at school due to the Prevent strategy.

Other incidents included a 16-year-old student with learning difficulties who was referred to Prevent after borrowing a book about terrorism from the school library and a 17-year-old boy who was questioned by police officers after being referred to the programme for expressing support for Palestinian nationhood.

The director of the charity, Yasmine Ahmed, said: “It is completely unacceptable that the Government is collecting, retaining and potentially sharing information on children in the United Kingdom without their consent and with no apparent regulation and oversight, particularly in instances where these children are not even accused or suspected of engaging in unlawful activity.

“It is time for the UK Government to acknowledge that the Prevent strategy is infringing the human rights of children across the United Kingdom and is counterproductive.”

She said the boy in question had been suffering from “stress related health problems” and was reluctant to go to school since the incident.

Ms Ahmed said their report showed the “complete lack of consideration” of the impact of the Prevent strategy on children.

She said there was “no acknowledgment the strategy may impact children's human rights, particularly their rights to freedom of expression, education and freedom of religion” and called for it to be abolished.

A Home Office spokesperson said: "Schools should be a safe place where young people can discuss any issue and develop the knowledge to see extremist ideologies for what they are and challenge them. The Prevent duty is about safeguarding children from extremist ideologies, not about shutting down that debate — to suggest otherwise is just wrong.

"Our recent teachers' omnibus survey shows the impact of that with 83 per cent of school leaders confident in how they should implement the Prevent duty. We have also published a range of advice and resource materials via our Educate Against Hate website.”

Prevent gives people permission to hate Muslims – it has no place in schools
Fahid Qurashi

The National Union of Teachers has recently backed a motion to reject the government’s counter-radicalisation Prevent strategy at its annual conference. This motion follows the National Union of Students (NUS) motion to boycott the Prevent strategy and its subsequent activism under the banner of “students not suspects”.

Teachers back motion calling for Prevent strategy to be scrapped

The Union claims that the Prevent strategy is targeting Muslim students, and indeed, the available referral data disclosed under freedom of information shows that between 2007 and 2010 67% of the referrals involved Muslims, and between 2012 and 2013, that figure was 57.4%. This is despite the fact that, according to the 2011 national census, Muslims made up only 5% of the national population.

White House claims five-year-old boy detained in US airport for hours 'could have posed a security threat'

The White House has said a five-year-old boy was detained for more than four hours and reportedly handcuffed at an airport because he posed a “security risk”.

The boy, reportedly a US citizen with an Iranian mother, was one of more than 100 people detained following President Donald Trump’s immigration order.

In a press briefing, Mr Trump’s press secretary Sean Spicer was unrepentant about the incident.

He said: “To assume that just because of someone’s age and gender that they don’t pose a threat would be misguided and wrong.”

Footage shows the boy's mother waiting anxiously at Dulles International airport in Washington DC before being reunited with her son, who was reportedly flown into the airport with another family member.

She then sang “happy birthday” to the little boy in English as she hugged him and covered him with kisses as onlookers cheered.

The mother declined to speak with reporters, but Senator Chris Van Hollen said the little boy was a US citizen who lives with his mother in Maryland.

Mr Van Hollen, a Democrat, said it was “outrageous” that the boy had been held for so long and that his mother had given the airport advance notice of his arrival.

Not exactly toddlers, but still kids.

The little girl who comes out with the green coat looks just like my daughter as she has the same coat and is probably the same height. Very scary and shocked!

Police hold children at gunpoint in Muslim house raid

(VIDEO & SOURCE)

Shocking footage has emerged showing police raiding a house in Birmingham and pointing machine guns at handcuffed children as young as 15.

The mobile phone footage shows armed officers storming the property on Pretoria Road before leading the youngsters out and forcing them to lie face down on the floor.

One of the children can be seen barefoot while some were still in their pyjamas when they were forced out of the house, according to one witness.

Police refuse to apologise to mum whose children were led from home at GUNPOINT by armed cops

Armed police stormed an address on a weapons tip-off which proved to be false which a woman said had "destroyed" her family

Police have refused to apologise to a mum whose four children were marched from their home and ordered to the ground at gunpoint.

Dramatic footage captured the moment armed officers swooped on an address in Bordesley Green, Birmingham after a weapons tip-off.

A distraught mum was held in a police van while her children, aged 15, 16, 18, and 21, were ordered to lie in the road at gunpoint, Birmingham Mail reports.

But West Midlands Police revealed it had acted after a tip-off which they said was made 'with good intent' - but it later turned out to have no substance.

A West Midlands spokeswoman said: “During the deployment of firearms officers - following a report that a man was seen entering a house with guns – a fence was damaged. We will work with the homeowner to rectify this.

“The matter has not been referred to the IPCC.

"Police will not be issuing a formal apology.”

The mum told how the incident had “destroyed me and my family” believing the call to police was “malicious.”

She said: “It was terrifying. One of my children was trying to ring me but they wouldn't let me speak to them.

“They were absolutely petrified and hadn't got a clue what was going on. To think they were led into the road like criminals breaks my heart.

“They are in shock at the moment and are receiving support from our wider family.

“The police broke the fence at the bottom of my garden, left my home a mess and haven't even had the decency to apologise.”

The mum said she would be visiting a solicitor to discuss the incident. She added: “This whole experience has devastated me and I will be seeing a solicitor to see where I can take this.”

These Muslim kids are only in elementary school - and in the classroom, they're called terrorists.

Since President Donald Trump was elected, civil rights groups have noticed an uptick in schoolchildren quoting the president's own words to bully their peers.

Forty-two percent of Muslim families reported their children had experiences with anti-Muslim bullying, according to a 2017 study from the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding. One in four of these reported incidents came from teachers or other school officials.

Mic interviewed four Muslim schoolchildren in New York to hear about their experiences in the classroom: Moheeb, 11, Shahrazad, 8, Enan, 10, and Saif, 11. These Muslim kids don't know much about Trump other than the fact he's the president of the United States and wants to ban Muslims. This doesn't bode well for Shahrazad and her family in war-torn Yemen.

"I have family in Yemen," Shahrazad said. "[They] can't come if Donald Trump makes another ban. When I pray, I ask God to help America and Yemen."

Trump and members of his administration have often stated that "Islam hates us" and that Muslims have a "predisposition" to terrorism. In turn, hate crimes and Islamophobic speech has exponentially increased since Trump began his presidential campaign.

Islamophobia also spiked immediately after the Sept. 11 attacks. But these children have no recollection of the tragedy that unfolded in 2001. They weren't even born yet.

Enan and Shahrazad, for example, don't think of 9/11 other than a date that comes between Sept. 10 and Sept. 12. "I don't know what 9/11 is," Enan said.

But despite not knowing who Osama bin Laden was or having any relations to al-Qaeda, they are still suffering from the anti-Muslim backlash that erupted about 15 years ago.

Moheeb is fed up with the bullying from his classmates and the lack of response from his educators. He recounted when two of his classmates, on different occasions, called him a terrorist. In one incident, Moheeb said he told two of his principals and that they didn't really take any action.

In another incident, Moheeb said he told his teacher that a female classmate called him a terrorist. The teacher then talked to the female classmate, who is of Puerto Rican descent and who Moheeb said he mistakenly called "Mexican," about the name-calling. Then, according to Moheeb, the teacher only sent him to the principal's office.
Now, Moheeb said, he ignores the bullying.

"I feel mad, because I don't think [students and teachers] understand how I feel," Moheeb said. "I sometimes ignore [the bullying]. If I cry about it, they'll do [it] more."
