Corruption. It’s a purely Republican issue.

Except, that is, for this guy.

Saudi School Textbooks: Christians Are Swine; Jews Are Apes and Devil-Worshippers

A Saudi embassy spokesman:

We have reviewed our educational curriculums. We have removed materials that are inciteful or intolerant towards people of other faiths.

And (from the same link), here are some quotes from actual current Saudi textbooks:

As cited in Ibn Abbas: The apes are Jews, the people of the Sabbath; while the swine are the Christians, the infidels of the communion of Jesus.

and this:

God told His Prophet, Muhammad, about the Jews, who learned from parts of God’s book [the Torah and the Gospels] that God alone is worthy of worship. Despite this, they espouse falsehood through idol-worship, soothsaying, and sorcery. In doing so, they obey the devil. They prefer the people of falsehood to the people of the truth out of envy and hostility. This earns them condemnation and is a warning to us not to do as they did.

They are the Jews, whom God has cursed and with whom He is so angry that He will never again be satisfied [with them].

LAT: Activist Against Immigration Reform is “Ambivalent” on Immigration Reform

Filed under: Dog Trainer,Immigration — Patterico @ 11:00 am

I’m just now catching up with this story of L.A. Times sloppiness. Michelle Malkin’s readers noted that someone the paper described as “ambivalent” on immigration reform (and whose pro-illegal comments therefore should be given more credibility) is really an activist against the Sensenbrenner bill.

Once again, the blogosphere reveals what Big Media does not. Because the paper does not provide its full content to mobile phone users using the standard Treo browser, I don’t know whether the paper’s editors have issued a correction/clarification. But they sure owe one to their readers.

Hiltzik is Back in the LAT

The rumors were apparently true. Hiltzik’s first piece after his suspension is a sports-related investigation piece, about Elton Brand’s troubles as a movie producer.
