The class is "world History"
So no # Sherlock its going to include Islam
If the course only focused on Islam or had a pro Islam slant then id get the anger but just for covering it?
Agreed. I think that is probably what the father is worried about. There have been several Pro-Muslim school controversies as of late, and I would be
on my guard as well, the one that pops into my mind is a class that goes into Muhammmeds supposed personal views. "Muhammed never wanted to change
the world, he only wanted to be passionate about his religion" or some other such nonsense.
I think all the religions need to be covered, but also all of their attrocities. You can be damned sure they are going to talk about the Crusades the
slave trade and formation of Israel today (including the alleged attacks against the Muslims, but I for damn sure don't remember them talking about
The Muslim Conquests with the same zeal The Crusades covered. I also don't remmebr them talking about The Barbary slave tade at all, nor their
pillaging in Italy and as far up as freaking Ireland where countless Europeans were forcefully taken by Muslims. Whereas in Africa the Europeans
traded slaves with Black African slavers. In my schools defense, I think there was a sentence or two that talked about how it was rich Africans who
sold fellow Africans to Europe but the overalll theme is Europe was racist conquerors.
I could go on but I think I have explained my point. This Marine needs to calm down, I'm a Marine myself and I have no particular love for the rag
heads who tried to kill me on my deployments, but that doesn't mean I don't want my children to learn about them. I only want them to learn about
Islam the way they hear about Christianity and Judaism, whatever that tone May be.
