LEARN THE KORAN – MUSLIMS BID TO TEACH YOUR KIDS
Sure thing! In the spirit of sheikh Feiz Mohammed:Â “We want to have children and offer them as soldiers defending Islam. Teach them this: there is nothing more beloved to me than wanting to die as a holy warrior. Put in their soft, tender hearts the zeal of jihad and a love of martyrdom.”
* Hey; what could possibly go wrong? Who can refuse such lofty ideals?
“We will be there to provide guidance in religious teaching”

NON-Muslim children will be taught Arabic and study the Koran under plans for a new faith school.
A charity is bidding to run the first Islamic faith primary in Britain for youngsters who are not followers of the religion.
The Al Habib Islamic Education and Cultural Centre says 50% of places at the school, which serves a mainly non-Muslim area, will be for local pupils.
It has submitted plans for the Â£7million, 420-pupil school in Swindon, Wilts.
The charity claims there is demand for the school from the Muslim community and non-Muslim families in the catchment area.
If it goes ahead, an hour of the timetable each day would be dedicated to studying Arabic and the Koran.
Non-Muslims can sit out the lessons but it is hoped most will choose to stay in class to gain more insight into Islam, an Al Habib spokesman said. He added: “The school will follow the National Curriculum and have teachers from different faiths.”
“We will be there to provide guidance in religious teaching.”
Keith Porteous Wood, director of the National Secular Society, said the school would be a “disaster” for the community.
He said: “I have great sympathy for local parents.
“A lot of them would not want a Christian school and far less a Muslim one.”
