Christianity crucified while Islam is idolised

“…Students are told “jihad’’ refers to a “spiritual struggle” and, while it may involve armed fighting, it is generally only “in self-defence”.

When detailing the spread of Islam across Europe the textbook also states nonbelievers “were allowed to live peacefully and practise their faith as long as they abided by the law of the land”. Ignored is Islam’s involvement in slavery and the fact those who refused to convert were put to death or lost their freedom, the right to own property and to practise their religion.

The Australian national curriculum History and Civics and Citizenship documents are also biased in that, while students must learn about indigenous spirituality, Christianity is airbrushed from the nation’s history.”
