We are seeing isolated incidents of parents throughout the nation complaining about Islamic indoctrination in their children’s textbooks. The reasons for their concerns seem to center mostly around history and social studies texts that lean heavily towards Islam without any counter weight from other religions. The complainants also state that the texts actually teach the religion.
Most surprising is the small scale of objections being raised about books that leans towards indoctrination and way beyond promoting understanding and knowledge.
Dr. William Saxton, Chairman of Citizens for National Security (CFNS) issued a 92-page report on errors in one such book titled “World History” by Ellis Esler. It was reprinted in Florida because of parental complaints.
Saxton said that Islamic fundamentalists have been successful in infiltrating social studies and history texts in Florida and in other states.
CFNS is the country’s leader in the struggle to rid K-12 public-school classrooms of Islam-biased textbooks – and getting unequaled results. But Dr. Saxton states: “It’s going to be a long, uphill battle, and we can’t stay in it without financial support.”
This is the result of 50 years of infiltration to erode our cultural and societal norms according to Saxton.
Saxton believes that the Council for Islamic Education, which he calls an arm of the Islamic Brotherhood, exerts influence on U.S. textbooks from both ends. The “bad guys” act as go-betweens, lobbying publishers on behalf of school boards and school boards on behalf of publishers. They sit on the committees that choose the textbooks and act as editors and advisers to the textbook industry.
He provided a summary of the kinds of things his task force found when researching the problem:
“…because humans rejected Allah’s earlier messengers, Allah sent his final revelation to Mohammed.” [task force note: “This de-legitimizes Christianity and Judaism by turning Jesus and Abrahm into Muslims, and marginalizing them.]
“Women, as wives and mothers, have an honored place in Saudi Society.” [task force: “It is well known they are limited members of Saudi society.”]
“Jesus was offended by what he perceived as Jewish religious and political leaders’ excessive concern with money and power…” [task force gloss: “Sets Jesus in opposition to Jewish leaders using some of the worst stereotypes of Jews as justification.”]
“The land now called Palestine consists of Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip.” [“Self-serving inaccuracy speaks for itself.”]
He said it is not limited to Florida – it’s epidemic. He first noticed the extent of it in his grandchildren’s textbooks in California.
When asked if he was overreacting, Saxton said, “Make no mistake.They’re out to kill us. They’re out to sabotage our miserable nation. And they’re right on schedule.”
Examples of parents concerned about Islamic indoctrination have been showing up in the news recently.
KTLA TV reported Thursday that the Muslim religion is being taught in a Manhattan Beach middle school according to the parents of one middle school boy. They pulled their son out of class when they discovered he was being taught Islam, not the history, but the actual religion.
The parents don’t want any religion taught in school.
The father was stunned at the “audacity” of these schools who think they can “sit these children down and teach them any religion they please.”…
