Fox’s Tantaros: Schools Should Teach Islam So We Know ‘Who We’re Fighting’

A curriculum introducing Floridian 10th graders to Islam has at least one parent upset after he claimed the students had to recite an Islamic prayer from the board. (The school denies this.)

During a segment on the flare-up, in which the Fox Outnumbered panel roundly agreed that teaching Islam in its historical and comparative settings was a good idea, Andrea Tantaros called the textbook “defective” and said students should be learning how Islam “got perverted.”

“I don’t think we know enough about Islam,” Tantaros said. “There’s a lot of people in the country now that could stand to learn: who are we fighting over there? How did this religion get perverted? What do they believe? I don’t think it’s a bad idea — as long as they get the 100 pages on Christianity and Judaism as well.”

“These textbooks are crap,” Tantaros added. “Where are they getting them?”
