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.
