Islamic School Textbooks in NY Sowing Seeds of Hatred - Larry Cohler-Esses (New York Daily News)

Textbooks widely used in New York's Islamic schools contain passages that are blatantly anti-Semitic, condemning Jews as a people, and repeating old canards about the Jews wanting to kill Christ.

The books, obtained during a three-month Daily News investigation that included visits to private Muslim schools, are rife with inaccuracies, sweeping condemnations of Jews and Christians, and triumphalist declarations of Islam's supremacy.
