    Quite a read, keep in mind it IS a publicly funded school:

    As far as I can tell, it started with a teacher, here:

    They are trying, but witness intimidation keeps coming up. Kind of reminds me of lawyers during the civil rights era, rooms getting firebombed and such.

    I'd heard about the school in CA that had a immersion month of Islamic traditions, but didn't realize the issue really criss crosses the nation, with MN being the most egregious example:

    Read the articles, then come whining. The firebombing was in reference to intimidation tactics, not something that had occurred, yet. The threats are not subtle.

    If you have advance information about a crime that is going to be committed.

    You need to alert the proper authorities. :cool:

    Drawing comparisons is acceptable, when the facts on the ground and behavior of the principals overlap.

    Islam is the first religion lefties like, because Islam hates the west.

    It's interesting the lack of discussion with the single exception of Sunni up to this point. All the bemoaning of prayers at graduations, on sports fields, etc., yet here where the public school is incorporating Islamic teachings into the school day, not a peep.
