Now that the kids are going back to school, parents and teachers need to be concerned about what they are being told about Islam. Many textbooks have been hijacked to show bias towards Islam.
National ACT has a project underway to research this bias, and demand a change.
So take a look at your kiddies’ social studies texts and tell me what you see. Go to the index and read everything they say about Islam, Christianity and Judaism. Are the religious claims of Islam presented as facts, whereas Christian and Jewish beliefs are bracketed as just “what they say about themselves”? Are Islamic contributions to civilization exaggerated? Is conquest history balanced? Are the negatives equally portrayed across all religions?
I’d like to form a committee to deal with textbooks. Any volunteers so far? You can help not only locally, but nationally.
