Parent groups and officials complain that history textbooks being used in the San Diego school district are whitewashing the facts about the Islamic faith, and want them removed. As usual, Muslims drag out the used and abused ‘Islamophobia’ card.
(H/T Elizabeth A) (This begs the question, why do American history books include chapters about Islam when they don’t for any other religions? Oh wait, could it be that the Saudi Government funds and controls the production of 70-80% of American history books?)
Michael Hayutin, San Diego chapter leader of the group ACT for America, says the controversial textbook called “World History, Medieval to Early Modern Times” teaches students a false view of the Muslim faith. After careful analysis, he and several colleagues say the book contains 22 errors about the meaning of jihad, polygamy and slavery in Islam – something the group wants remedied. “If the school’s going to bother to teach about Islam, they should do it as history is, according to the facts. If they want to romanticize it, they can put it in fairy tales,” Hayutin said.
