islamist indoctrination

Reader comment on item: Think like a Muslim[, Urges "Across the Centuries"]

Submitted by Mona (United States), Mar 18, 2011 at 03:13

We recently asked for an alternative assignment for one of our children in their class . Our child was asked to write out the five pillars of Islam . We believe in our children learning about the History of all the world , However we felt that it was one thing if we read to our child about different beliefs but for the students to write about the five pillars of Islam was as if they we're a muslim child .This is something a muslim child would do . I don't feel that in a muslim school that they would promote another religion to their students . Why should our schools do it all in the name of tolerance ? We teach our children to love all people but they don't have to agree with them .
