Organizers of Islamic history month are mulling over why their project has failed to achieve the same success in Toronto that it's found in other parts of the country.
The Canadian Islamic Congress declared October to be Islamic history month and received support from many cities and school boards, including Ottawa, Vancouver and Kingston, but not Toronto.
Zafar Bangash, director of the Islamic Society in York Region, said the success of black history month inspired his community to try something similar.
But he said organizers were late getting started, which may explain why the Toronto school board was reluctant to jump on board.
McKell said he's open to meeting with representatives from the Islamic community to discuss how they can get together and make the concept work next October.

9-11 reminded me about all I needed to know regarding toglodyte “Islamic history”.
Islamic history book.
The area now called the middle east used to be filled with some of the greatest minds and inventors. Then some pedophile murderer went into a cave. Satan spoke to him. He wrote a book filled with hatred and violence. And the world has been suffering by this cult of satanic death ever since.
Islamic history = Murder and Mayhem.
I’ve been thinking about the Islamic day at swimming pools and amusement parks...
Could we have an islamic day at the gun range? Pass out targets of Osama, Zawahiri, Al-Zarqawi, Hussein and others maybe?
Maybe some don’t want to be shoved into the darkness after all.
Perhaps the remembrance of Islamic "history" was far too violent for Toronto parents.
“Muslims have made a tremendous contribution to the development of science, geography, astronomy and so on. Which I believe is not very well known,” he said.”
Anything you can tell us about that happened in the past 500 years, Bangash?
“Bangash had hoped Islamic history month would spur a series of topical lectures and assignments in Toronto schools. But he said organizers were late getting started, which may explain why the Toronto school board was reluctant to jump on board.”
“lectures and assignments” which will just waste more class time with PC indoctrination and revisionist history.
Hey, who doesn’t want to celebrate it by burning cars, beheading Jews and Christians, beating women like animals, shagging animals like women, molesting little boys... ? Tons o’ fun. Toronto is just too uptight, y’know.
“McKell said he’s open to meeting with representatives from the Islamic community to discuss how they can get together and make the concept work next October.”
Well let’s see...how about a discussion of the real history of Muhammad and Islam take place.
I would suggest the next time it’s Ramalamadingdong! Allahu fubar!
Lives Lived: Canadians killed on Sept. 11, 2001
I’m glad it just fizzled and didn’t bomb.
Doesn’t take a month to outline the history of Islam. How about 30 seconds: “Death to infidels”.
gee, i wonder if they would consider having a Christian History Month??? </sarc>
It was a dud.
Of course it didn’t fly. They should have declared September Islamic month.
