Outreach: Dutch Class of 7-10 Year Olds Told, At Outing to Mosque to Better Understand Other Cultures, That They're All "Dogs" for Not Being Muslim

Well! If understanding other cultures was the goal, I'd say-- Mission Accomplished!

Surely they understand politicized, aggressive Islam more than most saps in Europe right now.

A cautionary note: While this site looks real enough, I've never heard of this news service before, so a big asterisk on this for now.

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."

Dude, that is the religion. Open your eyes.

One child's mother notes teh school is trying to "play this down," and finds that to be "the problem."

The problem is that this entire culture has a massive chip on its shoulder due to still basically living in the 1800's (if that -- minus the cargo cult bonanza of Western tech and savvy, who knows where they'd be).

And so many Muslims have decided to fetishize, out of deep insecurity and self-loathing, the one thing all Muslims are better at than Westerners: the practice of Islam as a religion.

You guys have lasers? Nanotech? Working on cancer cures? So bored of walking on the Moon no one even bothered watching the last couple of times?

Oh well we're really good at something else: praying to Allah.

Beat ya, chumps! How ya like me now?!
