Islam in public schools

According to the San Francisco Chronicle (via Jihad Watch):
Islamists have taken what's come to be known as the "soft jihad" into America's classrooms and children in K-12 are the first casualties. Whether it is textbooks, curriculum, classroom exercises, film screenings, speakers or teacher training, public education in America is under assault.

Capitalizing on the post-9/11 demand for Arabic instruction, some public, charter and
voucher-funded private schools are inappropriately using taxpayer dollars to implement a religious curriculum. They are also bringing in outside speakers with Islamist ties or sympathies. As a result, not only are children receiving a biased education, but possible violations of the First Amendment's Establishment Clause abound.
What follows in the article are examples of specific cases.

It absolutely astounds me how organizations like the ACLU, People of the American Way and Americans United for the Separation of Church and State--which have been so active in their anti-religion war in American schools--have been so silent as Islam steadily creeps in. Apparently these organizations were not so much anti-religion as they were anti-Christian.

Jesus Christ offends liberals. This is an example of the contridictions and total lack of discernment that liberals have in their world-view. I believe it may be a genetic disorder.

Jesus Christ is offensive to all people who are not Christians, liberals and conservatives. Jazzycat, sometimes it really does astonish me the things that come out of your keyboard.

Please insert 'secular' before liberals in first sentence of my first comment. I was referring to the article which clearly is referring to liberal policy. No Christian or atheist conservative would be for such folly. The last sentence was tongue in cheek, sorta. However, it might merit some research.

That being said, please be assured this comment is for clarification and not meant as an apology!
