One of the most disturbing things that is going on in our schools today is the false teaching about the Islamic religion. An article appeared in the Courier in January singing the praises of a “charity” that has been giving “educational” presentations in the Dundee area:
to address misconceptions pupils may have about Islam
students initially link Islam with things like terrorism but the overwhelming majority say they have a better understanding of the religion following the presentation
1,500 people have witnessed the group's presentations
See the disgraceful article in full here (note that the comments under the article are very informative and really leave you wondering why our media continues to praise such initiatives when their readers are so much better informed):
Educational charity out to show Dundonians the true meaning of Islam
A “better understanding”, how was that achieved I wonder? Did they mention this verse from the Quran:
Quran 8:12 – "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"
The Quran makes it clear enough that Mohammed’s violent career is a “beautiful example” that Muslims should follow (Quran 33:21).
The Sira and Hadith are also important in Islam because they contain the stories about Mohammed’s life and sayings that describe that “beautiful example”. From Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220) we have this:
Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been made victorious with Terror” (Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220).
Did they mention any of this? Of course they didn’t, because if they had they would not have been able to persuade even small children that there is no connection between Islam and acts of terrorism that Muslims commit.
Instead of just teaching children how to think for themselves, modern “education” is teaching them what to think. In this case its very much the wrong thing to think because such peaceful “interpretations” of the Islamic texts rely on selective quotations from the texts (a practice known as “cherry picking verses”), and the avoidance of the great number of verses that undermine this narrative.
What’s worse, they are not just teaching children the wrong THING to think, they are teaching them the wrong WAY to think, because they are encouraging them to discount any evidence that does not fit a theory.
Here is a blog that is dedicated to the subject of misleading education on the subject of Islam in our schools:
An article about a disturbing organization called "Curriculum for Cohesion" whose scope goes beyond just teaching but projects propaganda into just about every walk of public life in the UK today:
The Islamic academic organisation that is pushing Islam, unbidden and unwanted by the populace, into our public life.
Do you know of other examples of such propaganda in our schools? Please leave a comment below.
