    Washington D.C., Sep 14, 2011 / 02:36 am (CNA/EWTN News).- A new report shows that Saudi Arabia, home to 15 of the 19 terrorist hijackers of 9/11, continues to promote a violent form of Islam through its school system and textbooks 10 years after the attacks.
    “The Saudi government has given over its textbooks to the clerical Wahhabi extremists that it partners with to maintain control of the country,” said Nina Shea, director of the Hudson Institute's Center for Religious Freedom, in a Sept. 13 interview with CNA.


    As a consequence, the texts continue to teach students that “the Jews and the Christians are enemies” of Muslims, and that “the struggle of this (Muslim) nation with the Jews and Christians … will continue as long as God wills.”


    While describing Jews as “apes” and Christians as “swine,” the middle-school and high-school books command death for apostates from Islam, while encouraging violence against non-Muslims who refuse to make a “covenant” or come “under protection” of the Muslims.


    “In the general usage, Jihad is divided into the following categories: … Wrestling with the unbelievers by calling them (to Islam) and fighting them,” teaches the 12th-grade text “Hadith and Islamic Culture,” used in the 2010-2011 school year by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Education.


    In a report released on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Shea notes that “some Saudis themselves have acknowledged the problem posed by the nation’s curriculum.”

    Hata bongo wanafundishwa hivyo, ila wakifika chuo wanaelimika zaidi na kuona umoja! Ila kuna vibaraka wachache wasiopenda amani ndiyo huendelea kuwa wabaguzi hata kama ni maprof

    Wakristo hawana tatizo, sio kama wale wa upande wa pili. "Hayo ni maneno tu hata kwenye kanga yapo"

    I don't think it is ethical to call someone "swine"
