Christianity was started by a young Palestinian named Jesus and the 9/11 murderers were not Islamic Fundamentalists but simply a generic "teams of terrorists." That's the caliber of politically corrected crap many of our children are being taught in American public schools -- and it's past time all parents took serious notice.

Thomas Lifson... A Democrat by birth, he became more conservative in adulthood as reality taught him that dreams of perfecting human society always run smack into human nature.
Richard Baehr... Richard was recently named a Visiting Fellow of the Jewish Policy Center, and was a panelist for a Jewish Policy Center Forum along with Michael Medved, John Podhoretz and David Horowitz.
Rick Moran... He is also Chicago editor of Pajamas Media and is proprietor of the website Right Wing Nuthouse.
At the fulcrum of this effort is a little-known blogger from Northbrook, Illinois, named Ed Lasky, whose articles on AmericanThinker.com have done more than anything to give the smear campaign an air of respectability. Lasky co-founded AmericanThinker.com in 2003, modeling it after Powerline, a popular conservative blog. Before that, he had frequently written letters to newspapers defending Israel and criticizing the Palestinians. Though his background remains a mystery, Lasky didn't hide his neoconservative leanings. He wrote a blog post in 2004 titled "Why American Jews Must Vote for Bush," made three separate donations to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, contributed $1,000 to Tom DeLay and has given more than $50,000 to GOP candidates and causes since 2000. Lasky sits on the board of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, headed by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, whose close affiliations with Christian-right operatives like Ralph Reed has made Eckstein a controversial figure in the Jewish community.

Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world,Christianity is dwindling..atheist or agnostic is on the rise,or atleast more people dont feel they have to hide it..so it makes sense to teach about Islam.I think schools should be teaching the majority of religions,it IS a large part of peoples cultures,traditions and has had a large role in history.It links into so many aspects of the past,present and future it would be silly not to teach it in its basics.

How about teaching kids the truth, that neither the bible nor the quran were written by historians. How about everything written in both books are nothing more than hearsay.
The bible was written about 100years after christ's death, with no historian documention his life beforehand. How did they know the life of Jesus 100 years ago with nothing written? Also even if there was some truth to it even the vatican admitted that the bible went through decades of re-writes by church elders, so what difference does it make nobody here ever read the real bible.
