Mark Steyn's Antidote to Burqa-Mandating Texas Teachers
by Andrew Bostom
Todd Starnes of Fox News radio reports that Texas State Sen. Dan Patrick, chairman of the senate education committee, is launching an investigation, after outraged parents provided photographic evidence that their Lumberton (Texas) High School children were required to don burqas (and other Muslim garb), as part of an ostensible "geography lesson" on Islam.
Moreover, students, as part of this unabashed Islamophilic indoctrination process at Lumberton High School, were told by their teacher, "we're going to change the way we perceive Islam," who then also proceeded to instruct them to compose an essay, according to the report, "based on a Washington Post story that blamed Egypt's troubles on democracy - instead of the Muslim Brotherhood."
Such involuntary Islamic dawa in school must be thoroughly investigated, condemned, and permanently disallowed.
