Shut it down

The head teacher of a Saudi funded Islamic school has admitted that they use textbooks that refer to Jews as "apes" and Christians as "pigs".

Dr Sumaya Alyusuf confirmed that the offending books exist after former teacher Colin Cook, 57, alleged that children as young as five are taught from racist materials at the King Fahd Academy in Acton.

But she doesn't see anything wrong with that.

"These books have good chapters that can be used by the teachers. It depends on the objectives the teacher wants to achieve."

Yeah. We all know what those objectives are, don't we.

"[P[upils as young as five are taught that religions including Christianity and Judaism are 'worthless'.

Pupils have allegedly been heard saying they want to 'kill Americans', praising 9/11 and idolising Osama bin Laden as their 'hero'.

Looks like they are achieving their objectives to me. The school's head teacher admits it uses books that are overtly racist - why does it remain open? Just shut it down.
