Muslim schools are regularly inspected by OFSTED. Not a single Muslim school teachs Muslim children any thing about terrorism or killing of infidels.

It is often quoted by the Western media that Muslim schools ghettoizse the children, and even lead to their radicalisation if they are not integrated. There is no evidence that faith schools lead to a "ghettoized education system. In British schools, pupils are encouraged to focus too much on their similarities rather than their differences. The integrationist approach merely results in Muslims feeling that their faith, language and culture is not respected.

A report by the Institute for Community Cohesion found that native parents were deserting some schools after finding their children out numbered by pupils from ethnic minorities. Schools in parts of England are becoming increasingly segregated. The study focused on 13 local authorities. Many of the schools and colleges are segregated and this was generally worsening over recent years. This is RACISM because British society is the home of institutional racism. My statement regarding Muslim schools where there is no place for non-Muslim child or a teacher is based on educational process and not on racism. Muslim children need Muslim teachers during their developmental periods. For higher studies and reserech, Muslim teacher is not a priority.

It is not Islam and Muslims who are the roots of all the problems. Actually,
British society has been creating problems for the Muslim community for the last 60 years.The Muslim community has been vicitm of Paki-bashing in all walks of life by the British society and Establishment for the last 60 years. Now it is vicitm of terrorism by the British Establishment. Thousands of Muslim
youths are being serched in the streets and hundreds of them are behind the bar without any trial.

God has created diverse human beings to live in this tiny global villageas
of one family. Creation by its very nature is deverse with different
species, different communities, different cultures and languages. These
differences represent the beauty and wonder but diversity is sometimes not
fully appreciated, resulting in all sorts of clashes. The British society
and Establishment must learn to respect and accommodate others, as if in a family. The second generation of Muslim migrants is facing a huge challenge because they did not think even for a second before that someone would say, 'You are not welcome.'"

If you are worrying that people are different, believe different things, want different things you may be seduced to think that you could create world peace by making them all the same. Trying to do this usually leads to war, as history shows abundantly. There will be more peace and happiness if we allow each other to figure out for ourselves what we should do.

If there are parents and teachers, and children, who want faith schools, let them have them. Parents try to send their kids to faith schools because in general they get better results than normal comprehensives. State schools too, they may well teach various types of faith in those schools but all are to teach that Christianity is the right choice, the constant faith based holidays (easter, xmas plus others) from a very early age till the time one has to leave, they are bombarded with Christianity.Mr Dawkins must not forget that although faith schools attract state funding those who attend the schools have parents who pay their taxes. whether they went to a non faith school or not, the goverment would have to supply enough schools to fit them all in.
