Islamist Schools

Reader comment on item: War as Social Work?

Submitted by Graham Rael-Brook (United States), May 6, 2003 at 16:53

Is there any U.S. policy that could deal with the Islamist influence in the Muslim schools worldwide that encourage hatred and murderous goals for their students? If not, we are leaving a problem looming for our future generations.

It is going to be a sticky problem to deal with since in our democratic country, the administration has to allow policies which are abhorrent to it. How much more indefensible for us to tell other countries what their schools may not teach. Any demands or restrictions we would try to impose will quickly be branded dictatorial.
