Muslim students 'being taught to despise unbelievers as filth'

Pupils protest as college linked to Iran puts fundamentalist text on curriculum, reports our correspondent

MUSLIM students training to be imams at a British college with strong Iranian links have complained that they are being taught fundamentalist doctrines which describe nonMuslims as “filth”.
The Times has obtained extracts from medieval texts taught to the students in which unbelievers are likened to pigs and dogs. The texts are taught at the Hawza Ilmiyya of London, a religious school, which has a sister institution, the Islamic College for Advanced Studies (ICAS), which offers a degree validated by Middlesex University.

Besides likening unbelievers to filth, the al-Hilli text includes a chapter on jihad, setting down the conditions under which Muslims are supposed to fight Jews and Christians. The text is one of a number of books that some students say they find “disturbing” and “very worrying”. Their spokesman told The Times: “They are being exposed to very literalist interpretations of the Koran. These are interpretations that would not be recognised by 80 or 90 per cent of Muslims, but they are being taught in this school.

I think this brings out 2 points

1. Its intresting that the Islamic STUDENTS where the ones who complained about this shows that these sentiments about non-muslims are not universal within the muslim community. Its not surprising really, here in Paris I see Arab Muslims, French, and Africans (Christians and Muslims) congregating together all the time, espically the youth.

2. The the British, God Bless them, but they still have some work to do in terms of who they allow in the country. Its time that the Brits show all the extremists like Shiek Hamza (whom they generously allowed in) the door, British Citizen or not.
