Everyone seriously has to stop muslim-bashing.
This was a MUSLIM SCHOOL
therefore they have the right to make sure everyone teaching is MUSLIM.
It is an ALL-GIRLS SCHOOL
They have the right to make sure everyone teaching is FEMALE!
This is not them "taking over".
This is a small school (200 students I believe it said) that allows these people to be what they are without people accusing them of trying to take
over a friggin country just because they moved there!
I don't accuse anyone of trying to take over canada. In Vancouver, probably almost half the population is asian, and in Toronto, mostly black, all
recent immigrants. I don't go shouting that they're trying to change the country.
I think you all need to take a deep breath and think about the fact that these are human beings!
Nobody comes in here whining about how the catholic schools are trying to turn every person in the world catholic! No, they just want the chance to be
taught about their own religion, along with all the other subjects.
In this case it makes even more sense, considering the fact that their religion dictates that they pray so many times in a day, which most other
schools would flat-out forbid them from doing!
There are private schools that cost more than the average person's housing bill per year, but you don't accuse them of trying to make the world
rich, now do you? Because it just doesn't make sense.
It sickens me that people on ATS of all places can take this story about people being people (slightly ridiculous and prone to believing anything they
get in an email) and make it something so offensive and disgusting. You should be ashamed of yourselves for speaking about these people like they were
some kind of monsters.
BTW, a private school is free to do whatever it wants in addition to teaching the required curriculum. It can teach satanism if it wants, it can
require you to dye your hair a certain color, etc, etc.
This is not a case of discrimination at all.
This is a case of a rumor gone too far.
Think of it in the simplest form.
-you sign your daughter up for an all girls school because for whatever reason, you don't want her around boys. Ever.
-someone says one of the teachers is male and hiding it (regardless of the truth or not)
-you want proof that it isn't some perv trying to look at all the girls in an environment where they feel safe.
The point where this turns wrong is where the parents, despite proof that the woman is in fact a woman, continue to harass her. That isn't
discrimination however, as it has been proven that there is nothing different about her. It is just stupidity.
