Sources and Expressions of Islamic Jurisprudence
Our "great leaders" are either stupid, or they are selling us out for a handful of Saudi silver.Hmmmmm...yes! We've been sold out!
I do not know if or where these morons went to school but when I went to school we were taught history. We were taught about the empire of Alexander the great, the Roman empire and its fall. We were taught about the rise of Islam and its rapacious rape of most of the then civilized world. We were taught about the empire of Gengis Khan and how his descendents broke it up, one part going for China, the other one joining Islam. We were taught about the rape of Spain, Greece and eastern Europe. In fact, we were taught history as it happened, not as we wish it did. We were not only taught about the horrors of the various Crusades but also the reasons they were invoked in the first instance, which was the persecutions of Christians in the middle east. Islam can best be described as a warrior sect that has from day one set about trying to conquer the world. The same tactics that were used by the cult of the Assassins 1000 years ago are still used today. Assassin is the one of the major Muslim contributions to the West, read up on them and see how little they changed since then.
Ciccio, where did you go to school? They certainly didn't teach things like that where I went to school in Southern California!
So, citizen warrior, WHEN did you go to school? That is the crux. as well as where.
So, then I am shocked that history began to be neglected so early. Tho some of the history taught from the 50s and 60s was kinda iffy, we did get all that.but libraries are a great place to look for histories and encyclopedias.If kids can tear themselves away from computers, internet, games and tv.
As Rene said, it is not so much where as when. I started school in 1949. In grade one you had to learn your multiplication table up to 12 and learn to write, not print. If you could not do that at the end of the year you could not go on to grade two.The hard stuff like maths, physics and Latin only started in form 1, equivalent to standard 6.
