Islamic Issues - 伊斯蘭问题

San Francisco Chronicle reported that "Texas textbook board curtails mentions of Islam".
The Texas State Board of Education adopted a resolution Friday that seeks to curtail references to Islam in Texas textbooks.

The board approved the one-page nonbinding resolution, which urges textbook publishers to limit what they print about Islam in world history books, by a 7-5 vote.

The board in recent years has become a battleground for social conservatives and liberal watchdogs, each accusing the other of imposing ideological agendas on what about 4.8 million public school students learn in Texas classrooms.

This treatment of one of the main religions and important cultures in the world is very disturbing.  It is not only short-sighted and stupid, it is also the very mechanism of fostering religious fanaticism.

I remembered that a while ago, I mentioned the ill-treatment of Islam in China.  So soon, it's time to report that behavior in the US.



該委員會在最近幾年已成為一個社會保守派和自由派監督者的戰場,他们互相指責对方強加其意識形態議程于德州公立學校的約 480萬學生。
