Report on Biased Textbooks Goes to 500 Superintendents
by Ryan Mauro
The Christian Action Network has sent 500 school superintendents a report showing that many textbooks are biased against Israel and the West while whitewashing radical Islam. The report, authored by Citizens for National Security, examines 200 quotes from 30 textbooks used in Florida.
"[Students] aren't being taught about the theological motivations behind radical Islam," said Martin Mawyer, President of the Christian Action Network.
"The impression students are given is that terrorists are misguided fighters against Western imperialism and aggression, who are only wrong in their approach. It was amazing how many times the word 'Palestine' was used, making it sound like Israel was built on top of a conquered country," he said.
