Toronto Islamic school sent packing over anti-Semitic lessons

Lessons taught referred to Jews as ‘crafty’ and ‘treacherous,’ contrasted Islam with ‘the Jews and the Nazis,’ and alleged ancient Jews conspired to kill the Prophet Muhammad


ORONTO (JTA) — A Toronto Islamic school has lost the right to use a public school for its classes after anti-Semitic teachings were discovered in its curriculum and posted on its website.

The Toronto District School Board announced this week that the East End Madrassah could no longer rent space for its Sunday classes until police finish their investigation of the anti-Jewish teachings.

The public school board “[needs] to be satisfied with the outcome of the investigation and that [the madrassah was] in compliance with our policies and procedures” before they can use school board property, board spokesman Jim Spyropoulos told the Toronto Star.
