Parents of school children in Volusia County, Florida, gathered outside the school district headquarters to protest against a text book that contained a disproportionately large section about Islam compared to Christianity and Judaism, which is only mentioned in a few small paragraphs.
They even encouraged school children to tear out the chapter about Islam from the Prentice Hall World History book.
In a statement from the Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization CAIR, executive director Hassan Shibly said, “This group is holding a protest and rally to oppose the teaching of the historical and basic pillars of Islam to students in Volusia County.”
“It is displaying an alarming level of intolerance and brazen disregard of minority religions… We find their actions un-American and against every core principal that makes this country so great,” he told reporters.Last Mod: 07 Kasım 2013, 18:03
