Whitewashing Jihad In The Schools
Three years ago, I wrote
about a mock terrorism drill at a public school district
in Muskegon County, Mich. Instead of Islamic terrorists,
educators substituted Christian homeschoolers. [Anti-Homeschooling

Christian homeschoolers. Here was the description of
the school drill plan:
exercise will simulate an attack by a fictitious radical
group called Wackos Against Schools and Education who
believe everyone should be homeschooled. Under the
scenario, a bomb is placed on the bus and is detonated
while the bus is traveling on Durham, causing the bus to
land on its side and fill with smoke."
Flabbergasting, but true.
9/11 and the
jihadists` carnage against schoolchildren in
Beslan, Russia, the school chose to prepare their
students for an attack by Christian homeschooling "wackos",
not Muslim suicide bombers.
Unfortunately, little has
changed. Last month, New Jersey`s Burlington Township

But the "real as
possible" conditions included no bomb-vest-donning
jihadists shouting "Allahu Akbar." No red
martyrs with visions of 72 virgins dancing in their
evil heads. No America-hating plotters enraged by
the existence of Israel or
driven to establish a
worldwide caliphate. Nope. According to the paper,

hostage-taking Christian gunmen.

group called the `New Crusaders` who don`t believe in

Here is a

recall, counterterrorism officials sent cautionary
bulletins to police departments nationwide warning that
suspected members of extremist groups have signed up as
school bus drivers in the United States. The "extremists"

Who are these

Lutheran or Catholic homeschooling wackos.
In Indonesia last month, a
theological school was reportedly attacked by religious
terrorists in Jakarta. The school was
evangelical Christian. The terrorists were Muslim.
In southern Thailand, attackers hurled explosives and
opened fire on an Islamic school,
killing three students. According to reports, police
believe that Muslim insurgents staged the attack in an
attempt to convince villagers that authorities were
responsible—a ploy to win villagers over to the
