Several months ago the ACT! for America Mission Viejo (CA) chapter completed an eye-opening report about the disinformation and outright propaganda showing up in public school curricula and textbooks that deal with Islam.
But some of that pales in comparison to the Orwellian “newspeak” that has recently been handed down by California’s education establishment with respect to teaching Islamic studies.
For instance, as reported in the Investors Business Daily editorial below:
|…the suggested framework glorifies Shariah as a liberal reform
movement that “rejected” the mistreatment of women that existed
in Arabia before Muhammad and his successors conquered the region,
according to Accuracy in Academia. The guidelines claim that
Islamic law established for the first time that men and women were
entitled to equal “respect.”
This astonishing example of historical revisionism is just one more reason why we communicate such a sense of urgency to you about the rapid advance of radical Islam and creeping shariah here in the United States. Our window to build the organized resistance to defeat this is not twenty or thirty years long – it is more like five to ten at best.
Over the past two decades college campuses have become hotbeds for pro-Islamist, anti-Israel, anti-Semitic, and anti-American indoctrination. This has now made its way into our public high schools and middle schools.
If an entire generation of American students are successfully indoctrinated with lies, such as that shariah Islamic law established that men and women were entitled to equal respect, the chances that we can successfully roll back the rising tide of radical Islam dim immensely.
As Hitler is reported to have said to the adults in Germany, “I care not what you think…I have the children.”
