‘Madraseh Deeniyeh’ 

I watched a documentary movie on AlArabiya channel called ‘Madraseh Deeniyeh’, it means: a religious school, these types of schools are widespread in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and some on the borders between those countries.
The movie showed the lives of the pupils of this Islamic school, in the beginning, everything was fine, showing how life is so peaceful, and how those kids learn by heart the Koran for 2.5 years even when they do not understand a single word cause it’s written in Arabic so they learn it as it is, after those years the teachers begin to explain the meanings of the Koran to make them understand what Islam is.
One of those fierce looking teachers of course with unkempt beard talked about the system of these schools, and showed the reporter some of the parks while the pupils were playing volleyball with each other.
The teacher said: ‘we teach those kids the morals and ethics of Islam, how to respect the people, we are studying the Koran, and learn it by heart, the pupils here are so happy and proud of their future as they’ll grow as good men’
Till now, I asked myself: ‘so what?..what’s wrong with this system, since it is an ordinary school, and does not hurt anyone, let them learn what they want to learn, but without harmful outcomes’..
But I knew that there’s something after this nice introduction.
The movie went on, and I watched some scary scenes, those kids were sitting and reading the Koran loudly and hysterically with rapid forward and backward moves and above this, the teacher was holding something like a small piece of a hose and was beating them while they were reading the Koran frantically!
And here the black face was shown up.
The reporter asked one of the pupils about his life in this school, and the kid said that they are there from the morning till late evening, they don’t do anything but reading and studying the Koran (according to their teacher’s way) for years.
Future troubles began to be clear half an hour from the beginning of this movie.
The kids were talking about the Jihad and how they are ready to be one of AlMujahideen, their parents were so happy with their ‘courageous and strong’ boys, and that they would get AlJannah (the paradise) sooner or later.
Then, the manager of this school and some also bearded guests came by (obviously the big leaders) and started to talk in front of a crowd of teachers and boys explaining how the United States want to spoil their youth and destroy Islam, how they came to Afghanistan to destroy and make an end to Islam and how they want to control the Islamic world and many other thoughts, and then began to shout and scream: ‘God bless our great leader Osama bin Laden, God bless our great leader Mullah Omar’ ‘Death to America’..’Death to America and her collaborators’ and the crowd replied in a louder and scary voice the same ‘great’ words of their supervisors!

So attract innocent kids, put them in this religious school which resembles the jail, no one kid has the time to talk or see anything except his teacher and the Koran, wash their brains completely for years and fill it with hatred and hostile ideas using dangerous strict thoughts in the name of Islam, and then, It’s obvious from the environment of this school what will the ‘graduates’ be.

I wonder what would happen if the United States left Taliban to control Afghanistan till now? What would that movement do?
I wonder how some people especially in United States dare to say that the war on Afghanistan was wrong and after that the war on Saddam was wrong, yes, the regime might differ, but they are alike in the same crazy results, both support the terror, one of them directly and the second indirectly, that one prepare AlMujahideen and the second support them, and of course not only Saddam, there are other regimes who support and help terrorism, I think you’d better stand with your president against the terror, reelect him, I’m sure you don’t want to see another attack inside of America, you don’t know what’s going on overseas, you don’t know how the enemy is growing.

However, regarding religious schools, I want to know something: If these schools are so popular there and openly extol OBL and his followers, why they are left free?! We are fighting terrorism, and those schools are creating those fundamentalists who have OBL as their great leader and OBL is a terrorist, so why those schools are left free?
