Speaking of Iran...a point to mention here? I'm in World History and this is a college level course. 101..but still. It's not a cursory blow through.
It's also an older instructor who has been doing this all her life. I actually agreed with her until today ..and it took all I had to bite my tongue
and not have major words on the spot for the level of outright B.S. we got this morning.
While people believe Iran was related to 9/11? Heck, Obama is actually fighting the US public to work peace with Iran. It's nuts and it's stupid, but
there it is.
What did she say by the way? Well... I've heard the 20% radical figure before for what is estimated to be fighting radical across the Middle East.
That didn't bother me too much. When she said Sunni's were the good guys and the WHOLE 20% of Radicals were represented by the Shia and specifically
Iran? Well.... That's hard to stay quiet with.
When..a couple minutes later....she walked over the where Shia and Sunni were written on the grease board, pointed to Shia and said 'these guys are
who did 9/11' before moving on? Well... I think my tongue is a littlw swollen ..even now.
This....is...a...college...history and Poli-Sci instructor making such a profound and fundamental error ...while teaching the origins and basic
structure of Islam and Muhammad, no less.
Now how do you deal with ignorance at that level? I asked her about Wahhabi sect members after class short of an argument..but enough to determine she
truly believed what she was saying and it was by no means an intentional dis-info jab. Scary, huh?
