Parents in one Florida county were outraged to learn a school board meeting was canceled when they gathered to complain about a new world history textbook that devotes a chapter to Islamic societies.
FOX News Radio's Eben Brown reports from Miami:
The textbook titled "World History" is causing parental tempers to flare around Daytona Beach because a chapter examines Islamic societies in the middle ages:
Parents: "Anyone with an American brain, anyone who knows what this country is made of-- that Islam is a lie." / "Teach them all, teach them all factually and I 've got no problem with that."
Protesting parents were shocked when the school board canceled their meeting after receiving a threat. Local Muslims, like Hassan Shibly of the Council on Islamic Relations say:
Shibly: "Education is the key to a diverse and healthy, free society."
