Textbook bias

Madeline Brooks

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.

  1. Seems the new Dawa, proselytizing
    In the name of Islam, is to make Islam a “feminist culture” they bring up voting, compare religions, the burqua is not religious but some “style of culture” misquote the Qur’an as to how it relates to women etc.
    “Feminist” are preaching this in their feminst study classes.

    Anyway, Madeline you are correct as this article shows.

    “Today, Americans for Peace and Tolerance released a video showing 6th graders from Wellesley, MA as they rise from prostrating themselves alongside Muslim men in a prayer to Allah while on a public school field trip to the largest mosque in the Northeast. Teachers did not intervene. Parents have not been told.

    The video was taken inside the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center – Boston’s controversial Saudi-funded mega-mosque – during a Wellesley Middle School social studies trip to the mosque, ostensibly taken to learn about the history of Islam first-hand. Yet the video reveals that the students are being blatantly mis-educated about Islam.
    A mosque spokesperson is seen “teaching the children that in Mohammed’s 7th century Arabia women were allowed to vote, while in America women only gained that right a hundred years ago.”
    ( Where have I heard that?)

    This seems to be an increasingly recurring theme in American schools – the denigration of western civilization and the glorification of Islamic history and values. In fact, just recently, the American Textbook Council revealed that the New York State high school regents exam whitewashes the atrocities that occurred during the imperialistic Islamic conquest of Christian Byzantium, Persia, the African continent, and the Indian subcontinent, even as it demonizes European colonialism in South America.”

    • Indeed this is a blatant example of what is going on . What I do not understand is why? As a retired school teacher – I know firsthand the years we spent removing Christianity from the classrooms supposedly not to offend the Jewish . Now that I think about it – It almost seems it was really to remove Christianity just to remove Christianity.

      If one really really delves into our founding we will find that most of our founding documents were indeed heavily based on Judeo Christian principles and yet Atheists have driven us to believe this is not so and removed these from our schools and government buildings making way for a totally new religion to take its place. Now this Muslim religion with its own laws is creeping into our country and using our laws to take a foothold which it will then destroy those freedoms it used to gain its entry.

      I am ashamed to say I fell for the sensitivity argument until I saw clearly that this has been a ruse to change which religion will dominate in our country. If we are to have our Constitution – then we will adhere to it as is and we will not drum out the founding tenets and bring in Sharia by my God – we will not!

  2. Geez, Islam has to go back to the 7th Century in Saudi Arabia to
    make a point. Women voted.

    How about today? Let’s talk about equal rights for
    Women today…they don’t exist.

    Voting rights in the 7th Century!! Whoppie!!
    Today women in Saudi Arabia are covered, can’t drive
    a car, leave the house without an escort, travel
    without a husbands approval, are flogged for their own rape but hey ya all
    In the 7th century they voted.

    • I don’t quite know how to handle this Barbara- I want us to be fair and equitable . I do see an unfairness and I don’t like it. I do however want to handle this right. I am beginning to see such malice growing that is unbecoming to Americans and it frightens me and I am sure they are counting on it. The hate of the radicals is beginning to rub off on us . It appears to be the only way to deal with them – I know but we do have to be careful that we don’t act like them! I don’t know the answer but I know – I don’t want to look – sound or act like the animals I hate! That much I do know – I will not be dragged to that depth!

  3. I fully agree with you.Any religion is a faith, which is very personal.There should not be any advocacy for religion especially kids/students minds should not be twisted for vested interest.Advocate that ALL religions are equal. This will solve the problem to a great extent.
