Muslim Congressman Says American Schools Should Use Koran as their 'Foundation'

Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN), the Muslim congressman who once said that the Tea Party would "love" to see black Americans "hanging on a tree," made another controversial statement during a May 26 speech.

Speaking about the American education system, Carson told the audience that American schools should be modeled after Madrassas and touted the benefits of schools that use the Koran as their "foundation."

The Merriam-Webster online dictionary defines a Madrassa as: "a Muslim school, college, or university that is often part of a mosque."

Madrassas in the Islamic world are often associated with the teaching of radical Islamic theology that leads to terrorism and hatred of the Jews.

Once again, one has to wonder how the left would react if a congressman has said that American schools should use the Bible as their 'foundation.' 

My guess is that this would not go over well.  But, Carson will most likely get a pass from the secular press.
