Proselytising by Stealth

Reader comment on item: 'Become a Muslim warrior'

Submitted by Stan Beer (Australia), Jul 3, 2002 at 05:20

When I first read about this business a few weeks ago, I could hardly believe that it was actually taking place. My understanding of the US public school system is that the practice of religion within the confines of the educational curriculum is strictly verboten. Is it now the case that Islam for some reason is the exception? Or are we seeing just another example of Islamic proselytising by stealth through the education system? As Dr. Pipes points out, the universities are already under siege from Islamic radicals posing as academics of Middle Eastern studies. Why should anyone expect them to stop at the institutes of higher learning?
