This problem is not isolated to Somalis students in Somalia. Over 90% of young Somalis educated by madrassas in the West, do attend these Wahabi schools and that is why Alshabab finds it easy to recruit them.

Are you even remotely logical? This thread shows a real problem. Education should be secular. If people want to learn about faith, let it be separate from education. Why make schools about Islam if it would only make it harder for the youth to go into science. Fields like Biology will be incomplete since Evolution won't be taught. The Big Bang theory also won't be taught in the field of physics. Who the hell cares what he is? If he was white I wouldn't care. Do you even care, you seem to care more about race and tribe, do you even love you people when you can't even feel for their suffering anymore?

“The Islamic studies curriculum you hear is the pure Wahhabism, exported from Saudi Arabia, that teaches children that all those who are not Wahhabi are non-believers, including the children’s parents, and that it is ok to kill non-Muslims,” Jama told IPS.

Don't be silly Islam doesn't stop you to go into science in The Quran it does talk about the Big Bang theory that how that earth started. Some people like to limit them self. And it doesn't stop you being curious about this planet and human body (Biology)

Explain then why evolution, a topic that's applicable to nature, medicine and research is neglected? I have absolutely no problem with Islam, but as a faith, it should be represented as one. That's my point of view.

it is called "Pretense of Knowledge", people who have it do far more damage than people who don't.

Take that from Friedrich Von Hayek

so who was Somali, mommy or daddy? did they get divorced? Did daddy leave you? if so it might explain your deep rooted hate for Somalis, you have abadonment issues but instead of dealing with it you use it to hate Somalis and blame them for your misfortunes in life, grow up and move on voodo, because daddy aint comin back and hating somalis will not bring him back either. hate is not the answer, learn how to love ;)

The West should either ban these Wahabi Madrasas or, let the parents of these children fork out their fees from their own pockets and told that their welfare would be immediately cancelled. These children are taught to be secluded from the general community, discouraged to achieve to their potential because the wahabi literature is based only on the concept of the hereafter, taught hatred towards non-Muslims, institutions of government and therefore become ripe for brainwashing and their recruitment for jihadi causes. These children should be rescued and given good education, great skills to enhance their lives, taught to become tolerant of others, become productive and contribute back to society.

You made wild allegations, assumptions and quasi amateurish psychological analysis based on your own life's projection. I wont lower myself to your scum level and diss your parents. You were taught to be a member of a herd and think like them, while I was taught to be an individual who can think for himself.

BTW

My parents just adopted a 5 year old disabled Rohingya girl and thanks to them, I finally got a sister.

We also thank the funding from Saudi petrodollars. We are able to teach and spread our violent language at these madrasas, mosques and into homes globally
