Can you imagine jews at muslim schools?

I understand what they are trying to do....but I think this is a wrong approach.
All new faith schools will have to offer up to a quarter of places to non-believers in a move ministers believe will promote integration and ease growing fears that British society is splintering on religious and race grounds.

Alan Johnson, the Education Secretary, is expected this week to announce the plans in changes to the Education and Inspection Bill.

The move follows warnings from David Davis, the shadow home secretary, that the country was slipping into a system of "voluntary apartheid" in which there was a danger of creating "a series of closed societies within our open society."

The Church of England has already announced it will set aside a quarter of places at its new schools for people outside the Church.

However, under Mr Johnson's plans Roman Catholic, Jewish and Muslim institutions will be asked to do the same. Where local authorities choose not to invoke the powers, there will be a facility for individuals to appeal to the Education Secretary.
Exactly how do you get muslims to go to a jewish school? Would Catholics want to go to a jewish school? How would jews be treated at a muslim school? How many non-muslims really want to go to a muslim school?

The Islamic Republic of Britain will not tolerate schools based on other faiths for very long - they should have only Islamic schools as of now so that they don't offend the violent Muslims.

No problem - in the long run. All sorts happily attend Church of England and Catholic independent schools, many of which have strong Jewish and Muslim representation. All sorts happily attend good state schools with strong Muslim elements. So maybe Muslims and Jews would not choose to cross-fertilise at this exact instant, but there have been many times in the past when this was not so.

You need to consider something vital to understand about british culture: Some brits are very religious. Most couldn't care less about it, and dont really care what religion the school is so long as it scores well in the tables.
