Textbook Jihad

Views

When I was high school, I remember always thinking: “Why so much pro-Muslim, pro-jihad propaganda in my textbooks?”

And now it seems the folks at the Texas Board of Education, who through some weird quirks on the national textbook market are the dominant force in determining what’s in our nation’s textbooks, has decided to “root out gross pro-Islamic, anti-Christian distortions in social students texts” including “sanitized definitions of ‘jihad’ that exclude religious intolerance or military aggression against non-Muslims … which undergirds worldwide Muslim terrorism.”
