Islam and the Textbooks: A Reply to the Critics:
"Misrepresentation of Islam is a major problem in
today’s world history textbooks. Much of it is deliberate, I believe.
Sound scholarship is being ignored, and open review –- the only way to
reverse this process –- meets adamant resistance. This situation is

activists, textbook editors, and multiculturally minded social studies
curriculum planners. Organized Islamists have gained control of the
curriculum by gaining control of textbook content. This longstanding
process of co-operation and accommodation needs to be corrected, but
how to do so remains a puzzle, since educational publishers and
educational organizations have bought into claims propounded by
Islamists -- and have themselves become agents of misinformation."
