Teaching Islam

Over the last two days a conference has been held in South Australia to prepare the way for the implementation of Islamic studies in the Australian National Curriculum.

And this is just in from the ABC:

Experts work toward creating national curriculum

Currently, Australian Islamic schools use approved curriculum for core subjects such as maths, science and English, but there is no cohesive religious studies or Arabic program.

In an attempt to change that, leading experts in Islamic education from around the globe are meeting in South Australia to look at creating a standardised national Islamic studies curriculum that would become the first in the western world.

Just so you know, there is no specific section of the Australian National Curriculum that requires any teaching of Christianity.

However, as has been made clear today, Australia may soon have a core subject focused on Islam.

Dr Mohamad Adballa will present at this conference. In 2015 he was reported in the Daily Telegraph to have made this statement about the cause of terrorism:

“Unless we treat the root causes, such as the injustices in the Middle East, the double standards of Western foreign policies, the Palestinian plight, then terrorism and violent extremism will raise its ugly head again, even if groups such as ISIS are destroyed.”

No doubt, the Australian National Curriculum will teach that Islam is the religion of peace and that Western racism is the direct cause of violence.

President Trump was right to question whether the West has the will to survive.

Unfortunately, time and again, it seems that the answer is resoundingly no.
