"The reason why we see daily media coverage of terrorist attacks perpetrated by Islamic terrorists is because, well, there are daily terrorist attacks by Islamic terrorists around the world."

Indeed. This reminds me of the "camp feel good" that ADL and some other groups were sending kids too some time back that caused a bit of a stir. The controversy wasn't the inter-religious stuff, which is fine, but that simply putting kids together and training them that it's all about their personal relationships with "the other" does NOT train them to face reality, where such wishful thinking leaves them totally unprepared for the hard truths.

The Federal Government owes me one. The students went to ISB. There is an Imam of ISB who was near our children. Can the Federal Government release his complete biography? Isn't it the law of the land that parents have a right to know who is coming near their children. Or is the man in the red had an exception? What was the color of Dr. Seuss's hat? At least his complete biography is available.Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known to the world as the beloved Dr. Seuss, was born in 1904 on Howard Street in Springfield, Massachusetts.

I agree with Solomon that this situation reminds me of the situation Franck Salameh (a brilliant scholar) describes at Middlebury College.

This almost concerns me more because it involves high school kids.

High school students are not yet developed intellectually to be able to discriminate fact from fiction. They also don't possess the foundation in Middle Eastern studies.

They are basically sponges ready to absorb anything.

If the teachers are afraid of training future spies for America, they probably harbor anti-American sentiments and thus teach along those lines.

I hope all those students who took this class use their Arabic to become officers in both the CIA and FBI. That's the reason President George W. Bush urged more Arabic instruction.
