Two organizations have worked together to produce a study on the controversy, and they are reporting that some of the nuggets that students in Florida’s schools can learn from their social studies textbooks include:
The Jewish Temple in Jerusalem contained “symbolically, the throne of their invisible God.”
It was “a few followers” of Jesus who “spread the story” about his resurrection.
Israel is to blame for terrorist attacks by Palestinians because they were “angered over the loss of their territory.”
When the Jewish state of Israel was born in 1948, the nation and its neighbors “went to war.”
It was because of the “loss of their territory to Israel” that “militant Palestinians responded with a policy of terrorist attacks.”
“The Quran permitted fair, defensive warfare as jihad, or ‘struggle in the way of God'” and this was how Muhammad and his successors expanded their territory.
And while Jesus is “believed” by followers to be the messiah, it’s a fact that “Gabriel continued to send revelations to Muhammad over 22 years.”
Read the real wording of the Declaration of Independence and the story behind America’s founding document in Rod Gragg’s “The Declaration of Independence.”
Martin Mawyer, president of Christian Action Network, whose group worked with Citizens for National Security on the study and its distribution, said, “We found some very skeptical phrasing meant to cast doubt on the historical accuracy of the Bible.”
