Hassan Shibly of Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR smears Brigitte Gabriel of Act! for America and other counterjihadists, who have been fighting to replace Saudi-funded history textbooks which promote Islam to the near total exclusion of other religions.
The Florida State Senate recently passed a bill drafted by Republican Senator Alan Hays that would change the way textbooks are chosen in the Sunshine State. This measure, which was opposed by every Democratic Senator, would alter a process that had been created to “avoid religious and political bias” and empower the local school districts to choose their own textbooks without the approval of the Florida Department of Education.
The Senate voted for the bill which was pushed in response to a backlash over national education standards called Common Core. In November a protest erupted in Volusia County, Florida by outraged parents who claimed the school’s world history textbook had dedicated more pages to Islam than other religions. One of the protest organizers even recommended that students tear out the chapter on Islam.
