And on the taxpayer’s dime.
Obama Promotes Islam in the Czech Republic
If he promotes it there, he promotes it anywhere.
Must be a Christian thing.
Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch:
Is this Constitutional? No one particularly cares — to care about such questions would be “Islamophobic.” But imagine the outcry if American taxpayers were funding grants from US Embassies to promote Christianity. That would make the front page of the New York Times and be the top story on all the nightly news shows.
“US Government Promoting Islam in Czech Republic,” by Soeren Kern at the Gatestone Institute, April 14:
The Czech government has approved a new project aimed at promoting Islam in public elementary and secondary schools across the country.
The project—Muslims in the Eyes of Czech Schoolchildren—is being spearheaded by a Muslim advocacy group and is being financed by American taxpayers through a grant from the US Embassy in Prague. (The US State Department is also promoting Islam in other European countries.)
The group says the Czech Ministry of Education has authorized it to organize lectures and seminars aimed at “teaching Czech schoolchildren about Islamic beliefs and practices” and at “fighting stereotypes and prejudices about Muslims.”
But critics—there are many—say the project’s underlying objective is to convert non-Muslim children to Islam by bringing proselytizing messages into public schools under the guise of promoting multiculturalism and fighting “Islamophobia.”
