American K-12 Textbooks Push Muslim Agenda

By Jerry A. Kane

According to the report “The Trouble with Textbooks: Distorting History and Religion” by the Institute for Jewish and Community Research, American high school and elementary school textbooks contain countless inaccuracies such as Jesus was a “Palestinian,” the state of Israel never existed, and Muslims discovered America before Columbus.

The government in Saudi Arabia has been pouring millions of dollars into American high school and elementary school textbooks to proselytize disinformation about Christianity, Judaism, and the Middle East.

The Institute examined 28 of the most widely-used history, geography, and social studies textbooks in America and found at least 500 errors:

One book credited a “young Palestinian” named Jesus with founding Christianity.

Another book stated that ancient Jewish civilization contributed “very little” to the arts and sciences.

And another one claimed that God revealed the Koran to Mohammed.

The report claims that these textbooks are used by millions of schoolchildren in K-12 classrooms in all 50 states.

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities – but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith.—Winston Churchill, from his 1899 book The River War
