Chad Groening - OneNewsNow - 9/2/2011
An author and outspoken critic of Islam is accusing Texas Governor Rick Perry of endorsing the work of an Islamic group that helped produce a curriculum for the Texas public schools.
Various news sources have reported Perry's connection to the Aga Khan, the Imam of the Ismaili sect of Shia Islam. Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch says with the enthusiastic support of Perry in 2004, the Aga Khan Foundation along with the University of Texas created what became known as Muslim Histories and Cultures (MHC) curriculum, which is reportedly still being taught in some Texas public schools. (See details from Jihad Watch)
Robert Spencer"The curriculum is a complete whitewash and it's got the endorsement of Perry," says Spencer. "It's not going to give you any idea why people are waging jihad against the West -- it's only going to make you think that the real problem is 'Islamophobia.'"
According to Spencer, the Perry camp is not happy with his reports. "Never have I seen the furious reaction to anything that I've written," he shares with OneNewsNow. "I've criticized all sorts of candidates -- I criticized Bush, I criticized Obama, Romney -- and never have I seen this kind of reaction except from the Perry camp in the most furious terms."
Spencer says he does not think it would be too much to ask for Governor Perry to make some kind of public statement that he understands the jihad threat.
The Round Rock (Texas) Independent School District, in a promotional flyer for its "Muslim Histories and Cultures Project 2010," said the MHC program grew out of discussions in 2002 between the Aga Khan and Governor Perry, who agreed on the need for Texans to have "a greater understanding of Islamic culture." The program, according to that flyer, involved the recruiting and training of 80 teachers and affected more than 15,000 students in ten key Texas districts from 2005-2006.
