>>So we don't have to worry about Muslim children being taught that the
>>highest goal in life is to kill themselves in an attack on Americans?
<<If the kids use these memes for that purpose, then, yes you hae to worry
about them. But the memes themselves can be used for other purposes, such
as defending the faith in other ways. The teachers are using the memes to
attack Americans. The Taliban used basically the same memes to attack other
Afghans. The memes themselves are not anti-American.>>
Please explain how the meme "the highest goal in life is to kill yourself in
an attack on Americans" is not anti-American.
