And if you thought Islamization of public schools is only a British problem, think again - 3 min video 4.20.14 Thanks to Saudi funding of American school textbooks with an overemphasis on Islamic history and culture, not to mention curricula that teach American students ‘how to be a Muslim,’ the U.S. is not far behind the U.K. in its Islamic infiltration of public schools.
