The following press release from the National Endowment for the Arts includes information about Arkansas State University – Burkasrugly
WASHINGTON (January 9, 2013) –The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) announced today that 842 libraries and state humanities councils in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands will be awarded the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf, a collection of books, films, and other resources that will introduce the American public to the complex history and culture of Muslims in the United States and around the world.
Call me suspicious, but when they say these materials “will introduce the American public to the complex history and culture of Muslims” I tend to think they meant to use the word ‘indoctrinate’ instead of ‘introduce.’
The press release further states that:
…the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf is intended to address both the need and desire of the American public for trustworthy and accessible resources about Muslim beliefs and practices and the cultural heritage associated with Islamic civilizations.
Somehow, I don’t quite believe that these will be “trustworthy and accessible resources.” Not with the liberal NEH involved. It will be the same old story…Christianity is bad and the poor Muslims are totally innocent of all crimes against humanity, or other such rubbish.
Until next time,
