In the jihadist conquests that swept out of Arabia in the first few centuries after the death of Muhammad, Muslims killed and enslaved tens of millions of Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians, Hindus, Buddhists and animists as they established an Islamic imperialistic empire that stretched from the Atlantic Ocean to India.
This is historical fact.
But according to many of the textbooks reviewed for our report “Education or Indoctrination? The Treatment of Islam in 6th through 12th Grade American Textbooks,” Islamic jihadists treated those they conquered with “tolerance,” even supposedly allowing “full religious freedom” for Christians and Jews.
You can view or download the report here. If you have children or grandchildren in the public schools you DEFINITELY should review this report, as it is highly likely one or more of the textbooks we reviewed are used in the schools your children and grandchildren attend.
The rewrite of history common in the textbooks reviewed ignores the extensive chronicling of these jihads, many written by Muslims. One Muslim historian estimated that some 30,000 Christian churches were destroyed during jihadist conquests of the Middle East.
A new wave of Islamic persecution of Christians and Jews is on the march in the Muslim world today. An estimated 500,000 Christians have fled Iraq since we toppled Saddam Hussein. Coptic churches are being torched in Egypt. Bethlehem, whose population once was over 85% Christian, is now estimated to be less than 10% Christian. And the jihadist genocide in Sudan has claimed an estimated 1.5 million lives.
Nothing appears to be sacred in the face of this onslaught. View this short video of a group of Muslims in Libya destroying a cemetery where Christian and Jewish victims of World War II are buried. As the Muslims kick over headstones you will hear some chanting “Allahu Akbar.”
