|Students In Jerome Illinois Will Be Required To Pray In The Direction Of Mecca At Least Three Times Throughout Their School Day -|
An article is circulating online that claims local students will be forced to celebrate "Muslim Appreciation Month." Jerome village leaders say it's all false.
The website NationalReport.net recently published an article claiming Westhills Middle School in Jerome, Ill. will require students to pray to Allah and repeat an Islamic pledge of allegiance to Afghanistan's flag, or they will get a failing grade.
Well, for one, there is no Westhills Middle School in Jerome. Actually, there are no schools at all in the village.Plus, National Report is considered satire--though it's not obvious by browsing their website. Jerome village leaders said they've received many inquiries about the story, and confirm the entire article is false.
OK, so I did a map quest on Google to see where this Westhills Middle School is in Jerome; and here is the map I have with A: being Jerome, Ill and B: being Westhills, no where near Jerome. Unless it's some new Charter school not listed anywhere, or this story is completely made up?
