Netherlands: Children Visit Mosque & Told They Are Dogs

THE HAGUE, 09/04/08 - A primary school in Amsterdam wished to provide its pupils with an understanding for other cultures. But during a visit to a mosque, the children were told they were dogs.

With a view to developing understanding and respect for other cultures among children, primary school De Horizon regularly organises outings to various religious organisations. The chairman of the El Mouchidine mosque told the children from group 7 (aged 10) and their chaperones however that non-Muslims are dogs. More...

The children and chaperon's left with a better understanding of that culture. Wow. Apparently the school was trying to keep this quiet and didn't want the media involved. Too bad, this needs to be told.
