Taking Back America By Taking Back Our Schools

Tainted Textbook: 4 Paragraphs on Christianity 38 Pages on Islam

 Shabbir Mansure Council for Islamic Education

“World History,” Florida Edition Prentice Hall Pearson, 2013 is a 1054 page monster used for honors and standard high school level world history. As you would expect, it is chock full of dates and pretty pictures, but it also contains brazen pro-Islam bias. It covers history from early civilizations to modern times. The 2013 edition has removed some of the aggressive anti-Semitic anti-Christian misinformation present in the 2007 edition because of public concern driven by reports from Citizens for National Security www.cfns.us and Act for America, but the 2013 edition commits great sins of omission in favor of Islam. Pearson retained Shabbir Mansuri, and Susan Douglass to review and consult on the material. Both of these individuals are associated with the Council for Islamic Education, a front for the Muslim Brotherhood in America. According to Steve Emerson’s www.discoverthenetworks.com site the CIE is the:

Leading contributor and consultant to publishers of textbooks that include Islamic-related content

Promotes sanitized, inaccurate information about Islam in K-12 education

Has associations with the Islamic Saudi Academy, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, and the Islamic Circle of North America, front groups for the anti-Christian, anti American, and anti Israel Muslim Brotherhood

In the past Mansuri has also threatened scholars and public officials who do not sympathize with CIE requests, saying that they will be perceived as racists, reactionaries, and enemies of Islam as reported by journalist Jen Schroder.

Shabbir Mansuri, also founded soundvision.com, whose website www.soundvision.com gives several examples on how to incrementally ... in America’s education system.

Soundvision.com’s site currently features two prominent Muslim Brotherhood operatives, Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council on Islamic American relations (CAIR) interviewed by soundvision’s own show (www.radioislam.com), as well as an article featured on their site by Jamal Badawi, on how to interact with non-Muslims.

Susan Douglas, has taught social studies at the controversial Islamic Saudi Academy (ISA), an academy which has been cited for using textbooks that condemn Jews and Christians as infidels and enemies of Islam. She has publicly praised Pakistan’s schools that are known to fuel the Taliban and al-Qaida as “proud symbols of learning” among other accolades.

Douglass and Mansuri have minimized the enormous contributions Judaism and Christianity. The section entitled “The Roots of Judaism” is only three paragraphs in length. The introduction of Christianity entitled “The Rise of Christianity” is four paragraphs in length.

On the other hand, the section entitled “The Rise of Islam” is 32 PAGES with many of those pages devoted to rhapsodic praise of Islam. For example, Mansuri described the prophet Muhammed’s early days saying: “Muhammad became known for his honesty in business and was a devoted husband and father.” In fact, Muhammad lead a roving band of thieves to rob caravans and murder their owners to further his ends. Neither is there any mention of Muhammad’s massacre of the Jews of Medina in 627. Both are discussed by Montgomery Watt, in his book. Muhammad: prophet and statesman. Oxford University Press, 1974.

The 32 page section goes on to discuss the Five Pillars of Islam and the Koran. However in the introductions to Judaism and Christianity contain no mention of the Torah or the Bible. Later, the Bible merits a sentence when Martin Luther is discussed. On page 120, the authors state: “Muslims, Christians and Jews worship the same God.” However, many distinguished Jewish and Christian theologians would disagree with this statement. The authors, as if to contradict their own remarks, say that Muslims believe that like Abraham, Moses and Jesus, Muhammad is a prophet. But they say that Muhammad is greater than Abraham, Moses and Jesus.

“World History” contains many other flaws and misstatement, but the comparison between Islam, Judaism and Christianity is the most egregious. “World History” is not suitable for the classroom. You may download a free study “Islam-Biased Content in Florida’s K-12 Textbooks ” at www.cfns.us
