Canada’s Council on Anti-American Islamic Relations (CAIR-CAN) has issued an open letter calling on Jewish organizations and the Ontario Ministry of Education to investigate and remove textbooks that correctly explain historical Muslim anti-semitism that CAIR found in at least one Toronto Jewish school. (What were these ragheads doing in a Jewish school?)
|Qur’an 3:67||“Abraham was not a Jew nor yet a Christian; but he was a true Muslim, surrendered to Allah (which is Islam), and he joined not gods with Allah.”|
CAIR-CAN According to the syllabus at the Joe Dwek Ohr HaEmet Sephardic School in Thornhill, ON, a textbook titled 2000 Years of Jewish History: From the Destruction of the Second Bais Hamikdash Until the Twentieth Century, published by Feldheim Publishers, is being used in Grade 7 and Grade 8 girls’ classes.
|Qur’an 2:61||“Humiliation and wretchedness were stamped on the Jews and they were visited with Allah’s wrath.”|
The open letter was sent to Friends of the Simon Wiesenthal Center For Holocaust Studies, and The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, as well as the Ministry of Education. A private letter of concern was also sent to the school.
|Qur’an 2:64||“But you [Jews] went back on your word and were lost losers. You know that you have broken the sanctity of the Sabbath, so We said: ‘Become monkeys despised and hated.’ We made this punishment an example and a warning for those who fear Allah.”|
Both letters indicate that the textbook uses inflammatory and hateful (rightly so) terms in describing Muslims, such as “rabid fanatics” with “savage beginnings” (They ARE).
|Qur’an 5:59||“Say: ‘People of the Book! Do you disapprove of us for no other reason than that we believe in Allah, and the revelation that has come to us and that which came before?’ Say: ‘Shall I point out to you something much worse than this by the treatment it received from Allah? Those who incurred the curse of Allah and His wrath, those of whom He transformed into apes and swine.”|
The entire chapter devoted to Islam presents a
pernicious and extreme well-documented and accurate portrayal of Muslims and the Islamic faith. The material further denigrates the Prophet Muhammad as a “rabid Jew-hater” that he was and falsely correctly portrays Islam as inherently anti-Semitic and devoted to hating Jews (It IS). Further, the descriptions refer to an ongoing attitude defined as being “a combination of wildness and civility […] towards the Jews throughout history.”
|Qur’an 33:26||“Allah made the Jews leave their homes by terrorizing them so that you killed some and made many captive. And He made you inherit their lands, their homes, and their wealth. He gave you a country you had not traversed before.”|
“Overall, this teaching material undeniably leaves impressionable young Jewish readers with a sense of suspicion and even intolerance towards their fellow Canadians,” reads the open letter. (No, only MUSLIMS in Canada)
|Qur’an 59:14||“The Jews are devoid of sense. There is a grievous punishment awaiting them. Satan tells them not to believe so they will end up in Hell.”|
“We look to Jewish organizations to join us again in speaking out against the harmful stereotypes that can creep into curricula and which we would all agree must be expunged,” says Ihsaan Gardee, Executive Director at CAIR-CAN. “As our private letter of concern to the school stated, we are ready to engage in dialogue with the school to offer accurate information about Islam and Muslims in a spirit of understanding and goodwill. (In your dreams)
|Qur’an 98:1||“Those among the People of the Book, who disbelieve and are idolaters, would never have been freed from their false religion if the Clear Proofs had not come to them. An Apostle of Allah came reading out of hallowed pages…. They were commanded to serve Allah exclusively, fulfilling their devotional obligations, and paying the zakat. Surely the unbelievers and idolaters from the People of the Book will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures.”|
“The Ministry of Education also has a role to play to call on all schools to examine their materials to ensure they fall within acceptable parameters of the retelling of history and stay far away from vilifying any faith or cultural group,” says Mr. Gardee.

|Qur’an 59:2||“It was He [Allah] who drove the [Jewish] People of the Book from their [Medina] homes and into exile. They refused to believe. You did not think that they would go away. And they imagined that their settlement would protect them against Allah. But Allah’s [actually Muhammad's] (torment) came at them from where they did not suspect and terrorized them. Their homes were destroyed. So learn a lesson O men who have eyes. This is My warning. Had Allah not decreed the expulsion of the Jews, banishing them into the desert, He would certainly have punished them in this world, and in the next they shall taste the torment of Hell Fire.”|
