Tampa Parents Rip School For Letting Controversial Muslim Group Speak To Students

Parents in Tampa are the latest to protest school officials inviting a controversial Muslim civil liberties advocacy group to speak to students.

Dozens of people showed up at a Hillsborough County school board meeting Tuesday night to complain that a member of Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, spoke to history students at Steinbrenner High School last fall. They cited the group's past connection to a terror financing case involving the terrorist group Hamas. The group, which purports to promote diversity and tolerance of the religion, has met a similar reception in Texas and Georgia in recent years.

I would be pissed if this happened in Wicomico County Schools. As a matter of fact I would b!tch slap John Fredericksen for allowing it to happen.
