An Inclusive Litany

2/8/02

An Associated Press item that appeared in the "National Briefing" section of the New York Times, February 7, 2002:
The Los Angeles school district has halted distribution of a book about the Koran because its foreword calls Jews illiterates who reject knowledge. Nearly 300 copies of the book, "The Meaning of the Holy Quran," donated by the Omar Ibn Al Khattab Foundation, were removed on Tuesday for further review. "We're going to talk to the foundation members and determine exactly why the commentary's there and whether there is research to support it," said Jim Konantz, a district official.
