    What the heck is going on in this country?


    One of the text books asks children to list the "reprehensible" qualities of Jewish people. A text for younger children asks what happens to someone who dies who is not a believer in Islam - the answer given in the text book is "hellfire".

    Another text describes the punishment for gay sex as death and states a difference of opinion about whether it should be carried out by stoning, burning with fire or throwing the person over a cliff.

    In a book for 14-year-olds, Sharia law and its punishment for theft are explained, including detailed diagrams about how hands and feet of thieves are amputated.

    Last night's programme on this was shocking. Personally, I feel ALL religion should be removed from schools - other than teaching it within a cultural or historical context. Teaching pupils about stoning, amputation and how Jews look like pigs and monkeys is not education.

    I don't know how you define it but Islam is the perfect example and what is more disgusting is that no body took the streets to protest just like they do hiding under the message of peace when it concerns Israel, even here on RF the thread has 3 postings while other threads are over flooded by Muslims and haters who are so afraid that we would drink their blood. Britain and Europe is in so much trouble but I guess they deserved it.

    Jews have their own hatred mojo going on too. No religion is immune.

    Yes but we don't take the streets making riots screaming death to Muslims looking like maniacks who belong in a zoo, we don't blow are selfs up in German restuarants and surely we don't teach in Yeshivas that Muslims are decendents of donkeyes and camels. We don't rape and then behead are women for anything and the main point is we are not two faced people we don't create democracys for some people and not for others to give freedom to all but to allow the hate for others.

    A different flavor of violent oppression still is what it is.

    It seems that you are the one doing the hating....& pretty broadly based hating at that.
    As for judging me, you may do as you wish.

    What do you expect though, Kai. Islam is the "religion of peace". It's all just a simple misunderstanding. NO, really.

    I am surprise this is legal under our Race laws.
    If this continues It will worsen race relations to the extent that bloodshed is inevitable.

    Some Muslim youths already find it acceptable to molest and rape unaccompanied girls on the street.

    Disturbing article & video.
    It seems more a problem with the Saudi gov't than Islam though.
    What does the British gov't say or do about it?

    I think the teachers who taught this should be prosecuted for hate crimes and racism.

    Mr. Gove added that Ofsted, the government-appointed agency with oversight of education and children’s services, would be “reporting to us shortly” on measures to tighten oversight of part-time schools, whose teaching is currently free of the controls imposed on full-time schools.

    To "tighten oversight" sounds so calm in the face of such an inflammatory issue.
    Those inscrutable Brits!
