Posted on 06/09/2013 8:49:17 AM PDT by george76
Children from Newtongrange Primary visited the Central Mosque in Potterrow, but from an original group of 90 pupils, 28 were withdrawn.
The trip had been organised to help educate the primary one, two and five pupils about other religions and cultures.
But one parent today said they didnt want their child mixed up in the hate being preached in mosques.
The incident comes amid heightened tensions in the wake of the killing of soldier Lee Rigby in London, and David Camerons pledge to drain the swamp of extremism.
Religious leaders and Midlothian councillors condemned parents pulling their children out the trip, but one 42-year-old parent of a P2 pupil, who did not take part, said: I dont agree with sending my child to a mosque to learn about a religion that isnt my own. Its the hate that is being preached in these mosques that I dont want my child mixed up in.
It is not known whether girls who attended the mosque were asked to wear headscarves or long leggings. For those who didnt attend, the school laid on an alternative lesson on Islam.

Good for the 28 parents.
Certainly this was based much more on fear of the KNOWN, not as the Moslem in this article claimed fear of the unknown.
Schoolboys punished with detention for refusing to kneel in class and pray to Allah. Alsager School, near Stoke, has received furious complaints from parents .
Two schoolboys were given detention after refusing to kneel down and ‘pray to Allah’.
Parents were outraged ... They said forcing their children to take part in the exercise at Alsager High School, near Stoke-on-Trent - which included wearing Muslim headgear - was a breach of their human rights. [ July 2008 ]
Let's hope it was 56 parents.
A Roman Catholic schoolgirl has been labelled a truant after she refused to wear a headscarf during a compulsory trip to a mosque.
Amy Owen, 14, and fellow girl pupils at a Catholic secondary school were told to cover their heads and wear trousers.
But when her mother objected, saying she did not want her daughter to ‘dress as a Muslim’, she received a sternly worded warning letter from the headmaster saying she had no choice. [ May 2010 ]
Mosques = evil.
These false claims that Muslims are being victimized are designed to deflect attention away from jihad attacks and suggest that it would be dangerous to innocent people to resist jihad.
Hamas-CAIR is on its way to England to show other Muslims how to milk the system. A UK organisation has received a total of £375,000 from the UK government since last year.
For those who didnt attend, the school laid on an alternative lesson on Islam.
Did that lesson explain that islam is the most oppressive religious/political/social system ever established on earth? Did it teach the requirement to kill non-believers? Did it teach the requirement to treat their own women as dirt?
Sorta doubt they taught anything real about islam...........
Yep, and the Nazis also used the victim card to justify their treatment of Jews. You have to keep a sharp eye on those who call themselves victims, because it justifies a lot of things in their minds.
Looks like Muslims are the bullies.
Next they’ll be demanding non-muslim women wear the burkha to show they aren’t racists.
Cameron is going to drain the swamp of extremism? Step #1 is send all muslims to the Middle East. Step #2 is destroy all mosques in the UK. Step #3 is forbid a muslim from ever again setting foot on UK soil. Only then will the swamp be drained.
Did they base the lesson on the given principle that the Koran is Satan’s Scripture?
Who are the mosques and the school board to ‘condemn’ parents for not wanting to participate? Whose kids are these?
Government thinks that all kids belong to them [ takes a village, etc. ]
Muslims are tying to convert the non Muslim children.
In England the TELL MAMA emergency line to turn in imagined insults to Islam (”anti-Moslem”) anonymously is paid for by the Brit taxpayers
the line for the real anti-Christian doings by Moslems...oh well there isnt one...
In England “hate-crimes” are only when the Moslems want to complain about Christians...
stuff like Lee Rigby ??? Nah that aint a hate crime
Ft Hood ??? Nah
Boston ??? Nah
Spray paint on a mnosque ??? YES
and so it goes...
As a Parent, I would opt for jail time.
But first, I would legally challenge the school district to demonstrate that all muslim students are similarly required to dress and pray like Christians, to learn the meaning and the practice of tolerance.
Absent that I would be resolutely uncooperative.
