American Heritage Schools (AHS) are a pair of high-priced college preparatory schools located in South Florida, with campuses in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. AHS calls itself the “#1 School In Florida.” It boasts the “Highest Number of National Merit Scholars” – 175 for the Class of 2023, 16 Presidential Scholars, and 168 AP/Honors courses with a “94% rate on all AP exams.” Yet, for a school(s) that would appear so smart, it just did something awfully foolish and alarming. It bragged about how one of its clubs raised $10,000 for an entity linked to terror and bigotry. If the educational institution has any integrity, it will demand the money is given back.
On March 8th, the AHS Broward campus, which is located in Plantation, proudly posted on its Facebook page about how its Arabic Club organized a Ramadan food drive to raise money for the Islamic Foundation of South Florida, a radical mosque based in Sunrise. It stated, “The Arabic Club organized a food drive for the day of Ramadan. Led by Mr. Jose Bronca, club advisor, and Mohamed Hachem, club president, the Arabic Club made the Heritage community aware of the needs of the Islamic Foundation of South Florida (IFSF)… Many people donated money to the foundation, raising $10,000. Thank you to everyone that supported this drive!”
This was shocking, given IFSF’s disturbing history.
The former Youth Director and Events Coordinator for IFSF is local Muslim activist Abdur Rahman al-Ghani. Al-Ghani believes Jews are inherently wicked. His Facebook posts have described Jews as “the children of Satan” and “demonic.” About homosexuals, he has written, “If you are gay, you are not a Muslim, you are a stone cold kaffir outside the fold of Islam. No one is born gay, it is a sickness…” He has posted a photo of Hamas militants with the caption (in part), “We love u Hamas. U are the real hero.” He has labeled the US the “World’s Number One Terrorist Organization” and wrote that Islam “will over-take the World in numbers.”
In April 2014, IFSF hosted a talk by Mazen Mokhtar, a former administrator for the now-defunct al-Qaeda financing and recruitment site, Jihad in Chechnya (qoqaz.net). The site was produced by Azzam Publications, named for the mentor of Osama bin Laden and co-founder of al-Qaeda, Abdullah Yusuf Azzam. Mokhtar has described suicide bombings as “an effective method of attacking the enemy and continuing jihad.” About Hamas, he wrote, “One of the reasons of my support for Hamas is that they have very high moral standards…” and “the operations of HAMAS are heroic…”
Of course, Abdur Rahman al-Ghani may no longer be involved with IFSF, and the Mazen Mokhtar speech was nearly a decade ago. However, recent events at IFSF and affiliations of the mosque demonstrate that the radical identity of IFSF is entirely unchanged.
Last month, IFSF hosted an event for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group with financial and foundational ties to Hamas. In December 2022, a sermon was given at IFSF by Shafayat Mohamed, an imam who has been thrown off several Broward boards for his anti-gay rhetoric and whose mosque, Darul Uloom, has been a haven for high-profile al-Qaeda operatives. In June 2022, IFSF hosted a speech by a representative from Islamic Relief, a group that has been banned by a number of nations. And in March 2022, IFSF hosted an event for the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), a group with a variety of links to South Asian terror.
IFSF and its children’s school, Salah Tawfik Elementary & Middle School (STEMS), are currently members of the South Florida Muslim Federation (SFMF), an umbrella organization for South Florida’s many extremist Muslim groups, including all of the entities mentioned already and a number of radical mosques beyond IFSF and Darul Uloom.
One of IFSF’s fellow Federation mosques is Masjid Jamaat Al-Mumineen (MJAM), which promotes on its website material: calling Jews and Christians “enemies,” sanctioning domestic violence against women, glorifying female genital mutilation, and mandating death punishments for homosexuals. In September 2021, IFSF hosted a talk by MJAM’s imam, Izhar Khan. In May 2011, the FBI accused Khan of plotting with members of his family to help finance the Taliban.
Another SFMF mosque, the Islamic Center of Boca Raton (ICBR), was founded by a website designer for Hamas and a former assistant to a leader of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). In May 2021, IFSF hosted an event with ICBR founding Imam Ibrahim Dremali and IFSF Imam Sultan Mohammed, titled ‘LET’S TALK PALESTINE.’ One day prior, Dremali lauded Hamas and PIJ, saying “The only people right now in Gaza fighting are Hamas and Jihad… Don’t worry. Victory is coming soon.” Dremali also had implored people to read Protocols of the Elders of Zion and said, “If the Arab leaders open the borders for Palestine… the Jews they’ll be inside that ocean.”
Following the August 2020 explosion that devastated Beirut, Lebanon, leaving hundreds dead, thousands injured, and over $15 billion in property damage, the Arabic Club of American Heritage Schools sent two sizable containers filled with clothes, food and medicine to Beirut. It was a legitimate and commendable act, and the group was praised for doing so.
However, what was neither legitimate nor commendable was for the club to raise money for the extremist IFSF. Given the mosque’s numerous links to terrorism and bigotry, not a dime raised was warranted, let alone $10,000. Advisor Jose Bronca and AHS failed to exercise due diligence in investigating the insidious nature of their funds’ recipient. As a result, donors were duped into thinking their money would go to a worthy cause and institution.
The AHS slogan is “Knowledge, Integrity, Compassion.” AHS and its Arabic Club should live up to this motto and show ‘integrity’ by owning up to their mistake and immediately demanding that the money be returned. Providing funds to such an organization as IFSF is both immoral and a threat to security.

That whole school sounds dubious. How can it have 168 AP classes?? How is that even possible 😳.

Islam attacks America; fools respond by inviting more islam to our shores (at taxpayer expense).
I dreaded that we’d succumb to the evils of islamic subjugation, when Bush43’s immediate response to 9/11 was to visit a mosque with his shoes off & then invite ’em to the White House.
When I found out we were coddling evil scum at Gitmo, rather than hanging them, I knew we’d lose our soul.
(The islamic scum routinely toss urine & fecal matter at Marine guards – with zero consequence.)

So when will they start flying the Star and crescent out font of their place?
David Ray says
If/when they do, the question will be if the flag is flying next to a BLM flag, or a 🌈 Pride flag, or both.
(The entertaining part would be the muslims rioting upon seeing the Pride flag alongside the star&crescent flag . . . and the idiot faculty not understanding why.)

when it comes to the muslim invasion, as it’s happening in europe, we can expect the democrat party to be right there……………………. holding the gates open for the invasion!
“Then we suffered the rattling election of Barack Obama, whose active membership in a white-, Jewish-, and America-hating church was well known to the electorate. His close personal relationship with the likes of his adored Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan was no secret. Obama was open about his goals. He told us he was out to “fundamentally transform America” and the world.” ALAN BERGSTEIN
Justin Swingle says
“There is a deep racist and anti-Semitic disease in the leadership of the Democrats. As Senator Cory Booker brings his hatred for the Jewish State to the Senate, he should be asked whether he agrees with his hero, “The only good Zionist is a dead Zionist we must take a lesson from Hitler”. DANIEL GREENFIELD
We have to ban mosques in America. Islam is not a religion, it’s a violent political movement intent on enslaving humanity.
Jo Dermody says
I am an American woman. I am Catholic. I have lived a long time.
I believe the religion of islam is one to be very terrified of. I think the people from Fl who voted this in are not very bright.
The people in all our states need to understand so many people are not trusting of our wonderful Constitution.
Islam is now a trans-religion. It is whatever the leftists want to believe. I have friends who swear by the vitures of Islam. One friend told me the Jews are no better. Why, they destroyed Nineveh in the Bible. What is worse than that? Worse than the WTC in 2001. An acquaintance from Iran said something similar. If one wants to defend Islam, one can always find an excuse. And as a trans-religion, one can attribute all sorts of virtues and peacefful intentions to it. Even the UN chief said they had 1000 years of peaceful contributions. Well, if it was so peaceful, why did it destroy the Byzantine Roman Empire and turn the churches into mosques? Why did muslims destroy the WTC and part o the Pentagon? Whenever something bad happens, it proves that America is systemically racist, but a jihadi attack is not proof that Islam is systemically jihadi. To the contrary, these attacks are always by radical extremists who are mentally ill, and they are lone wolves, and they were motivated by Western imperialism, the Crusades and the British Empire. Islam is not systemically racist like America and the Americans, who are racist white supremacists. Fear of Islam is phobia, but hatred of Israel is justified because the Jews have always exploited the poor Palestinians, who fought the Romans a thousand years ago. There ability of people to believe in nonsense is without equal, it seems.
Could you possibly have written a more brainless and hateful pile of rot? Probably not.
You cannot blame all of those Merit Scholar students as they have not been correctly informed about the evils of Islam and the fact that Islam is a civilizational enemy of America. I would wager that the school has no classes on Islam and the truth of their global jihad etc, etc,.
>>I would wager that the school has no classes on Islam and the truth of their global jihad etc, etc,.
What school does? Hebrew University of Jerusalem just inaugurated a yearly “Nakba” day. At least we’ll always have Budapest.
I wonder how much Islamic money is flowing into this school. I wonder about its board of directors and its advisers and their connections to Islamic influencers.
Ultimately its up to the parents if they want their children to attend a high cost private school that is indirectly facilitating terrorism.

The heads of that American Heritage School might feel that they are being “open-minded by their money for that mosque but in reality they are throwing away their American heritage for a non- American foreign religion with its Sharia which in the conflict with the precepts of the United States Constitution.
Furthermore, they are being the useful idiots of the stealth jihadists with their Islamic goal for a gradual dominance of Islam with its power in the United States.
All this is very much in connection with mass construction of mosques on America and Europe.
This has a meaning which has been explained by a former Muslim who is now a Christian, Dr. Daniel Shayesteh, in his book ISLAM THE HOUSE I LEFT BEHIND for in page 99 it informs the reader that “The mosque is vital for establishing Muslims as sovereign over non-Muslims in a non-Islamic society or country. Building a mosque in a non-Islamic society or country symbolizes Islam’s claim over that society or country, even with a non-Muslim majority.”
David Ray says
You’re exactly right.
A smug imam prlck that wanted to build a 15 story super “ground zero” mosque near the twin tower site. What’s telling is that 5he muslim prick was wanting to call it the Cordoba mosque – symbolizing a mosque built over conquered Spain.
With the support of high-priced trash like Bloomberg (He lied and said a gulf War veteran told him he had been fighting for the right of Muslims to build that mosque), the America-hating imam git his wish.
They called it the Cordoba mosque for a reason.
Walter Sieruk says
A message, very much ,need to be sent to those stealth jihad- minded Muslims who are living in the USA who attempt to have Sharia law enacted in this country. They need to be reminded that the United States had something that is far better than Sharia law. It’s the US Constitution. This is America, not Saudi Arabia or Iran.
As the former US President, Theodore Roosevelt, had well-spoken when he declared in a speech “There can be no fifty-fifty Americanism in this country. There is only room here for only hundred percent Americanism, only for those who are Americans and nothing else.”
Walter Sieruk says
This Frontpagemag. article is a reminder that there is an Islamic movement in the United States that is known as the Stealth jihad otherwise called the Muslim method of Islamic Gradualism. In contrast to the way of the violent jihad or also called the militant jihad .This non-violent form of the jihad for Islam is a very sly, insidious, subtle and deceptive way of working for the advancement of Islam with its Sharia law.
This Muslim scheme for achieving the goal of the Islamic agenda is as, many times, as subtly effective as it is demonically clever.
Furthermore, this Islamic gradualism, in some ways, is very similar to the instruction printed in the book entitled THE ART OF WAR by Sun Tzu. Which reads, “At first, then, exhibit the coyness of a maiden, until the enemy gives you an opening; afterwards emulate the rapidity of a running hare, and it will be too late for the enemy to opposes you”
Walter Sieruk says
The high ranking people of that American Heritage school have exposed their own ignorance of the history of Islam and its mosques. They should know better, they have no excuse for their folly for their financial support of that mosque.
For historically and even into this twenty -first century, the mosque isn’t only a place where Muslim gather to worship their god Allah, but it’s a strategic military command center. As for America mosque is ,many times, also place to scheme strategy for the stealth jihad. As in Islamic infiltration and influence of the man different branches of the US Federal and State government.
Read the book See Something, Say Nothing, Barky already started letting militant Muslims in and out of the country without questions.
The invasion has begun here
Gerald Mucci says
Broward County has tons of Muslims. It likely was an inside job.
