What in God's Name Are They Doing
Ofstead are giving clean bills of health to 'faith' schools that are encouraging children to sit around and imagine that they are bombers about to carry out an atrocity in the name of Islam.
Denis MacEoin, found no evidence that children were being brainwashed into becoming jihadists; but, as he writes in these pages, he did find that fundamentalist schools are teaching their pupils to despise the society around them, propagating fatwas against playing cricket or chess, attending concerts or watching Shakespeare. Some of these schools teach girls that men are more intelligent than women. Yet none has failed an Ofsted inspection; several have been praised by inspectors.
The plan for 7/7 role-playing and the inability of Ofsted to spot fanatical indoctrination are both evidence of a wider crisis: the failure of the Government and the establishment to meet the challenge of separatist Islam. Although the "module" produced by Calderdale council does not condone terrorism, it encourages Muslim Asians to think of themselves as victims.
This is utter madness, if these schools are supported by the State and us the Taxpayer, they should be closed immediately. Blair was the great promoter of faith schools, he certainly did God in a big way despite what Campbell said, and this is the end result.
State schools should be secular institutions promoting excellence in Science, Languages,Mathematics and English/Scottish/Welsh Culture, not setting up victim schools, and promoting backward thinking, be it medieval Islam & Judaism, Creationism and all other moonbattery.Leave God at the school gates. Morality and tolerance is not dependant on the Divine.
If they want to abuse their children, they can do it on their own time and at their own cost. Every child deserves a chance to shine, not to be taught they are a victim.
