Controversial History Lesson Has Students Depicting The Prophet Muhammed

Schools across America have made their intentions known that they want students to learn more about Islam.

Seventh graders at Penns Valley Area school were assigned to portray the Prophet Muhammed in a video about the religion's history. This is despite a verse in the Quran that says "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter."

Essentially, Islam forbids any depiction of Muhammed. Yet, history teacher Michael Durn wants his students to recreate Muhammed's life in the 7th century--without any mention of brutal beheadings, black slave trading, child molestation and rape of sex slaves.

Durn's assignment requests the students design “a video in which you will show, visually, the life of Muhammad, the development of Islam and its beliefs.”

Durn doesn't seem to remember the murder of 11 Charlie Hebdo employees for depicting Muhammad. Nor does he seem to recall the attempted mass shooting at a Garland, TX gathering where conservatives gathered to view art depicting Muhammad and to peacefully express their First Amendment rights.
