AS THE WORLD TURNS:
US government schools teach pro-Islamic propaganda


by Marc Sheppard

News Weekly, March 21, 2009
A five-year study by Gary Tobin and Dennis Ybarra of the Institute for Jewish and Community Research cites hundreds of errors and distortions found in "28 of the most widely used social studies and history textbooks in the United States". Their book, The Trouble with Textbooks: Distorting History and Religion, examines the pro-Islamic disinformation they uncovered, including the assertion that Jesus was a Palestinian, not a Jew.

Education expert Gilbert T. Sewall, the director of the American Textbook Council, has also found a decidedly "whitewashed" version of Islam in school history books. Sewall told Fox News that pusillanimous "publishers have been pressured by Islamic activists to portray the religion in the most favourable light, while Islamic terrorism is downplayed or glossed over". He singles out the textbook World History: The Modern World for intentionally omitting the religion of the 9/11 hijackers.

No mention of Islamic Fundamentalists. No mention of jihad. No attempt to explain the identities or murderous motivations of the madmen who perpetrated the most horrific attack on our country ever.

And speaking of jihad, here's how Sewall described what the book History Alive! The Medieval World and Beyond teaches students about the subject:

"Jihad is defined as a struggle within each individual to overcome difficulties and strive to please god. Sometimes it may be a physical struggle for protection against enemies," the book reads, noting that Islam teaches "that Muslims should fulfil jihad with the heart, tongue and hand. Muslims use the heart in their struggle to resist evil."

Just as with curricular green globaloney, your best defence against scholastic Dhimmitude begins at home.

Discuss with your children what they're being taught, and be prepared to teach them the truth.

Teach them about Sharia and jihad and oppressed women and terrorism and honour killings and barbaric execution methods. Teach them that only just and nurturing cultures deserve to be celebrated, not diversity itself.
