How about teaching the children about Islam and the imperialism of the Arabs. We can teach them about what the Arabs did to the late antique world in the Middle East and beyond, of destruction of the great civilizations of the late antique world, be it in Syria, Iran, Egypt and beyond. This horrible destruction was a major crime against humanity. And we can teach them about the Jizya AKA mafia tax imposed on the infidels (it makes you wonder would Muslims living in the West agree to pay such tax as Jizya in exchange for "protecting" them. I bet if such tax is imposed on Muslims they will all abandon Islam and this would be the end of Islam in the West).

We can also teach them that Muslims are hypocrites as they call such atrocities of invading the lands of others as: Futuh or the opening! Nothing about imperialism.

We can also teach children to poke holes in the fraudulent history of early Islam as transmitted to us by the bankrupt Islamic Historical Tradition, and Allah only knows if he is for real that is, there are so many holes in such history. And may be a simplified introduction to Wansbrough will go a long way.

What is most surprising is that so many of those that post here in this forum are Pakistanis, that do not know any Arabic, and are not Arabs, , and who have a culture that is so diffrent from their masters the Arabs, and still defend Islam, that brutalized their ancestors.
