Texas students dress in burqas, taught to call Muslim terrorists 'freedom fighters'
by Jessica Chasmar
A Texas lawmaker is launching an investigation after a high school teacher reportedly invited her female students to dress in burqas and refer to Muslim terrorists as "freedom fighters."
State Sen. Dan Patrick told Fox News he is very disturbed by a Facebook photograph posted by one of the students in a world geography class at Lumberton High School, which showed them in Islamic garb. He also is investigating reports that the students were forced to write an essay based on an article in The Washington Post that blamed Egypt's turmoil on democracy rather than the Muslim Brotherhood.
"Parents are very sensitive to any issue that seems to be anti-American — that blames democracy for some sort of trouble in the world," he told Fox.
