Must not describe Islam accurately in Canada?

A Canadian Islamic organization is accusing a Toronto-area Jewish day school of using a textbook that vilifies Muslims.

In a Nov. 19 letter to Jewish groups, the Canadian Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR-CAN, charges that a textbook used at the Joe Dwek Ohr HaEmet Sephardic School employs "inflammatory and hateful terms in describing Muslims."

CAIR-CAN alleges the book, "2000 Years of Jewish History," describes Muslims as "rabid fanatics" with "savage beginnings."

"The entire chapter devoted to Islam presents a pernicious and extreme portrayal of Muslims and the Islamic faith. The material further denigrates the Prophet Muhammad as a 'rabid Jew-hater,' and falsely portrays Islam as inherently anti-Semitic and devoted to hating Jews," the group said in its letter to the Friends of the Simon Wiesenthal Center For Holocaust Studies and the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, or CIJA.

It said the text is used in grade 7 and 8 girls' classes at the Orthodox Jewish day school and "leaves impressionable young Jewish readers with a sense of suspicion and even intolerance towards their fellow Canadians."

Particularly in Surah 9, the Koran is full of hatred towards non-Muslims and exhortations to kill or oppress them  -- so the Jewish school is simply describing Islam accurately.  I have a copy of the "Glorious Koran" on my desk and have checked it.

It could be that Muslims disown that part of the Koran, just as modern Jews disown the harsher commandments of Leviticus, but any Muslim who did that would get his head chopped off.  The Koran is perfect, according to Islamic doctrine.  Muslims can't stand criticism of any kind.

John - at least their response to criticism is logical. Muhammad and the Koran are both perfect, therefore criticism of them in any way denotes imperfect thought on the part of the critic.

Unlike many Christians, who believe they have "one of" the "True Ways" to heaven, ignoring Christ's dissertation on the matter - i.e. "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Light. No man comes to the Father except THROUGH ME."

The irony here is that the far-left, which gives it's support to Muslims, is overwhelmingly comprised of self-loathing, guilt-ridden, jews.

Anon 3:45, you are 110% correct. Unfortunately, especially in the West, "civilized" nations lack the brains, will, and courage, to do what everyone knows must be done. Until Islam is eradicated, totally eradicated, the world will never again know peace.

Muslims know only one thing. Overwhelming force and the will to use it. Instead, they grow stronger and more bold fueled by the weakness of the west. The end result should be obvious to anyone who has the courage to see it.

America needs to pull out of the UNITED NATIONS tell those war mongers to fight their own wars

What we really need is a text-book that conveys to educated Western fashionistas that the Israelis did not fight against helpless Palestinians in 1948 but against Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Iraq and Lebanon, who were, in fact, invaders with conflicting territorial and other ambitions. Of course, there were Palestinians engaged against Israel - the Mufti of Jerusalem was the Nazi who got away, after all. And one might add the British to the list of Israel's opponents in that period. But, what the hell, let's just ditch Israel. The Middle East is badly in need of another decrepit theocracy or socialist backwater.

Islam needs a protestant reformation, except they'd all likely get killed.
