Militant Islam comses to Schools in Australia...

I expect the same to happen to Canada soon too.
A RADICAL Muslim thinker who inspired al-Qa'ida is being served up as subject matter for high school students in NSW.

Sayyid Qutb, an Egyptian militant hanged in 1966 but still a powerful influence on violent Islamists, and the Pakistani fundamentalist Sayyid Maududi are the only two modern Muslim thinkers on a revised syllabus for studies of religion.

Experts this week condemned the prominence of political Islam in the new syllabus, and especially the inclusion of Qutb.

"I am surprised and dismayed that the NSW religion syllabus narrows modern Islamic thinkers to its totalitarians," said Daniel Pipes, whose US-based Middle East Forum agitates against Islamic extremism.

"Islam has a rich intellectual tradition. To pick these two writers is like representing modern German culture with Marx and Hitler."
