No more changes coming to TDSB Islamic guide

The Toronto District School Board will be making no more revisions to its controversial Islamic Heritage Month guidebook, the Sun has learned.

On Wednesday, the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies (FSWC) sent the TDSB a letter complaining about the guide’s inclusion of the Nation of Islam and leader Malcolm X.

“The Nation of Islam is considered to be a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and Nation of Islam officials have a documented history of antisemitic rhetoric including Holocaust denial, exaggerating the role of Jews in the slave trade and hateful conspiracy theories about Jewish control of the economy,” the letter from the FSWC states. They urged the board to pull the guidebook and do a full review of its contents.

    Has their adulation of Islam crossed the line? Is it time to take the TDSB to court?

      “take the TDSB to court”

      You mean the “court” than gives Canadians jail time for an offensive magic marker, and millions to whiney moose limbs and natives? Good luck with that.

  • Flyboy

    If the purpose of the handbook is to familiarize its target audience with Islam why does it not mention “jihad” or “sharia” within the body of its text?

    Fake news: “We don’t see any need to do any further reviews of our books; the content is fair, it’s reasonable, it’s balanced, and it reflects the evil and wickedness of Jews as documented in the Qur’an, Sunnah and Ahadith.” /sarc

      And probably endorsed by PMJT and his merry band of islamists in parliament. Progress!

    I’m sure anything removed from the guide book will be covered at the many field trips to the Khan museum of islamic propaganda. Why, the kiddies may even meet little Justin there with his funny socks.

      And get to see the “palestinian” anti-Semitic “art”.

  • Starlord

    Islam has a rich history of turning non Islamic cultures into zombie states with no innovation or progress.

    Has the tsdb been infiltrated or have we imported tards over the years and now they are in control?

    Imagine if it was a Christian book/guide the gnome beards would be freaking…

      “have we imported tards over the years”

      No need for importing, they were already here. Canadians were too busy watching hockey games to care about how this country was being run. The future is all downhill – Enjoy!

      • Starlord

        I would agree. Look at Ontario 360 billion in debt racked up over 10yrs…

        Seems we are run by the gay and Islamic mafia…

  • Why is there an Islamic Heritage Month at public schools?

    • Observer

      Because the teachers’ unions have pushed for it and it is supported by all the NDP school trustees.

      • Will they be support a stoning of the mandatory gay students groups?
