Saudi-funded textbooks America's K-12 classrooms
Saudi-funded textbooks being used in America's K-12 classrooms.
Teaching, among other things, that Jesus was a "Palestinian," the state of Israel never existed, and that the Muslims discovered America before Columbus. At this rate, perhaps even Saudi grade-school textbooks, complete with jihadi and dhimmi declarations, will come to instruct American school-children.
"Public Schools Teach the ABCs of Islam," by Erick Stakelbeck for CBN News, October 9:
CBNNews.com - Several recent studies have shown that American students are alarmingly ignorant about U.S. history and world events.
Experts have contributed the problem to everything from failing schools to substandard teachers.
But what about content?
For instance, did you know that Muslims discovered America? Or that Jerusalem is an Arab city? That's just some of the "history" that students in America's K-12 classrooms have been taught in recent years--with the help of taxpayer money.
A new report by the non-profit Institute for Jewish and Community Research finds that American high school and elementary textbooks contain countless inaccuracies about Christianity, Judaism, Israel and the Middle East.
The Institute examined 28 of the most widely-used history, geography and social studies textbooks in America. It found at least 500 errors.
One book ignored the Jewish roots of Christianity, saying the faith was founded by a "young Palestinian" named Jesus.
Another stated as fact that the Koran was revealed to Mohammed from God.
Yet another said ancient Jewish civilization contributed "very little" to to the arts and sciences.

Sheesh, this is coming from people that sleep with their goats!
There should be a way to stop this, maybe parents can do it if they join together....if they care and not are all liberals.
I posted about this before awhile back but this is more information about it.
....Thank you RAC for sending this and the graphic.

The pathetic public schools are re-programming our kids from pre-school through the 12th grade. GOD was removed from OUR classrooms in 1964 and fortunately our kids received QUALITY educations in private schools, but we had to $ACRIFICE in order to get this accomplished. Fortunately we have private, parochial, christian, charter and home schools/schooling! IN GOD WE TRUST 1775-2008!!

The same minions chanting Obama mantras are the same ones blocking school reforms. I refuse to vote for any educational funds beyond basic teacher pay. A system broken for over 50 years can't be fixed with money, it takes parental activism to take back parental rights from the socialist state. In this case it's the Sharia state. Parents today relate moral equivalence into everything and the schools relegate funds and attention to the lowest common denominator, today it's the Muzzie.
Wake up Moms and Dads, you are facilitating jihadists.

it's real bad here in VA nearer DC - lots of Mosques and schools funded by Middle Easterners. How many parents do you know who read their kids text books or would know if they were incorrect?
The lack of teaching actual history, esp of this country, here in our schools is one reason so many sheeples do not know why Obama's Marxist-based policies are a Very. Bad. Thing. and goes against everything our Founders stood, fought and died for.

Darth, that is exactly what has been happening. I would hate to be a kid in school now, I would probably rebell and get kicked out or something.

Jack, we do the same thing. Nick and I never ever vote for any educational funds beyond basic teacher pay.

Yankeemmom, thank you so much for sharing about this!! It is so heartbreaking how they are doing this. We have the best country in the world and such a marvelous history that should be told.

Oh Goodie!! More nonsense for me to straighten out with my kids! According to legend, it was 2 Chinese Astronomers who were blown off course and hit what is now California during the time of Christ and there was St. Brendan, Prince Madog of Wales, the Vikings, etc, all before Christopher Columbus.
I just love having to fix my 6 year olds brain every night when she pops up with some fact that they were taught in school which is terribly wrong and off base.
Remember, as it said in Braveheart, History is written by those who have hanged heroes.
