Hundreds will protest Islam lovefest history textbook foisted on high school students

On Florida’s Atlantic Coast, some 200 or more local parents and activists have announced plans to show up at Tuesday’s Volusia County school board meeting to protest the public school use of a world history textbook that devotes a whole chapter to Islam but exactly zero chapters to any other religions.

The textbook, called simply “World History,” contains a 32-page chapter fondly devoted to “Muslim Civilizations.” Sections include descriptions of the Koran, the growth of the Muslim empire and the Five Pillars of Islam.

The planned protest will include a demand that students rip out the 32 pages of the Islam chapter unless the school district agrees to provide students with a similar amount of officially-sanctioned material concerning other religions, reports local ABC affiliate WFTV.

  1. I am very happy to have found this site. Will you also please cover moslem schools, such as Gulen schools and others? There’s a bunch of them out here. There is a company from Texas that has a school section (apparently textbooks for moslem schools) and they also sell books by al-awlaki. There’s a dental company which distributes fliers in public schools (I’m a public school substitute teacher) and this dental company is run by arabic named individuals. I have also noticed that some schools use a textbook for “Eastern Hemisphere” world studies with a hijabed woman PROMINENTLY on it’s cover. I cannot at the moment recall the name of the publisher of this book. I would like to send you topics like these as I run across them, and so I hope you don’t mind this slightly off-topic post. Keep up the good work.
