Amsterdam: Children Told they are Dogs during Mosque Visit

From J.R. at the Astute Bloggers:

A primary school in Amsterdam wished to provide its pupils with an understanding for other cultures. But during a visit to a mosque, the children were told they were dogs.

With a view to developing understanding and respect for other cultures among children, primary school De Horizon regularly organises outings to various religious organisations. The chairman of the El Mouchidine mosque told the children from group 7 (aged 10) and their chaperones however that non-Muslims are dogs.

In a letter to the children's parents, the school expresses its regret at the incident: "We are shocked that during the guided tour, the mosque's chairman told the children and chaperoning parents that non believers were dogs. We consider this statement as unacceptable since we allow our children to partake in this project to develop respect for freedom of religious choice".

In the meantime, the school's management has addressed the mosque on the undesirable behaviour of the chairman. Both parties will say nothing further on the matter. "We will resolve the matter amongst ourselves and I have no inclination whatsoever to discuss the matter with the media", as newspaper De Telegraaf quoted the school's spokesperson Mariet ten Berge. "We have been to the mosque before and it always went well".

Angry parents had sent the letter on to De Telegraaf but were reportedly rapped on the knuckles by the school's management. "The school wishes to play this down. That is precisely the problem", as one mother commented.

So much for teaching "understanding and respect."

Muslims don't respect our beliefs, and they certainly don't want to take the time to understand them.

But, of course, naiive lefties will continue to try to force understanding and respect down the throats of our children.

But, of course, you wouldn't have been allowed in the Mosque, because the stones and the trees outside would have ratted you out.

Is the West going to put up with this CRAP?

Imagine the ego trip the mosque chairman was on while and after he did this?

Pastorius said...

"You should have seen them. I called them dogs, and they didn't do a thing. That's because they know they are dogs."

Someone should tell that jerk that he's a sick puppy, and toss some dog hair in his direction. Some pork renderings too. :^)

Pastorius said...

Or, how about dog crap in a paper bag, lit on fire on the front porch.

I hope the parents aren't settling for that rap on the knuckles. Sounds to me like Dr. Telegraaf needs some knuckles rapped upside his head.

Well THAT explains everything, Jaco!

So much for PC and multiculturalism.

I hear they will "tolerate" us dogs, if we pay a special tax.
