Of course, the school didn’t teach “race hate” at all, but rather religious hate: “Jews” and “Christians” are not racial groups any more than “Muslims” is. But the British legal system cannot conceptualize such a thing.
And even more importantly, the British cannot dare to conceive of the possibility that this problem is deeper than just a matter of a few textbooks. The source of the identification of Jews and Christians with apes and pigs is the Qur’an itself:
Say: “O people of the Book! Do ye disapprove of us for no other reason than that we believe in Allah, and the revelation that hath come to us and that which came before (us), and (perhaps) that most of you are rebellious and disobedient?” Say: “Shall I point out to you something much worse than this, (as judged) by the treatment it received from Allah? Those who incurred the curse of Allah and His wrath, those of whom some He transformed into apes and swine, those who worshipped evil; these are (many times) worse in rank, and far more astray from the even path!” (5:59-60)
The implication of this is that the People of the Book — Jews and Christians — by rejecting Muhammad, are risking the same kind of bestial transformation.
“Muslim school ‘that taught pupils from race hate textbooks made photocopies after order to shred them,'” from the Daily Mail (thanks to all who sent this in):
A prestigious Islamic school in London was forced to shred 2,000 textbooks used to poison pupils’ minds with lessons of hate, a former teacher claimed yesterday.
Colin Cook, who taught English at the King Fahad Academy for 18 years, told a tribunal how “incompetent” Ofsted inspectors reported that the school’s teaching of Islamic studies was “mostly good”.
But their report was wildly inaccurate, he said, because pupils as young as five were being taught by rote from Arabic textbooks describing Jews as “monkeys” and Christians as “pigs”.
Mr Cook said that when he exposed the racist teaching, the school’s head Dr Sumaya Alyusuf lied on television, insisting that hateful passages had never been taught.
Under public pressure the Academy eventually agreed to destroy 2,000 books but photocopied them first for future use, he told the tribunal.
The school, in Acton, West London, opened in 1985 for the children of Saudi diplomats and is funded and controlled by the Saudi government.
Its 1,250 pupils have included the five children of jailed claw-handed cleric Abu Hamza and those of Abu Qatada, who was said to be Osama Bin Laden’s right-hand man in Europe….
