High School Assignment Tells Students: ‘Pretend You’re Muslim’ to Empathize With Their ‘Struggles’

by Gina Cassini | Top Right News

Students in a 10th grade World History class in Wisconsin were asked to pretend they were Muslims for a written assignment.

Beth Urban assigned her students at Union Grove High School a five paragraph essay in which they had to give examples of the hardships they would face if they were Muslim.


“Give three examples of what you do daily for your religion and any struggles you face,” the teacher instructed.

The assignment was given via email during the students’ spring vacation. Urban says students had been “watching documentaries” which would provide them with sources for the assignment.

FoxNews said some parents were wondering how this fits into a world history. Were students asked to do the same for other religions? Do students learn about the persecution Jews have endured throughout their history? Do they learn about Christians who are targeted and oppressed in countries where Islamic law rules? Do they learn about the intolerance of radical Islam and its manifestation in groups like ISIS and al Qaeda?

FoxNews didnt’t find out. But we did.

Top Right News reached out to parents and students on Facebook, and, although none wanted to be quoted by name, all said that no students were asked to “pretend” they were Christian or Jewish.

They also said that the “documentaries” the students had to watch “celebrated” Islamic religion and even praised Mohammad for being “devout.”

Of course, nothing was mentioned about sections of the Koran in which Mohammed married an 8-year old girl and consummated that marriage when she was 9. Nor did it mention how Mohammad burned “apostates” alive — which was cited by ISIS when the burned alive a Jordanian pilot last month.

The films also hyped the largely non-existent “Islamophobia” in America. Despite marketing by Islamic supremacy group CAIR, there is a near total lack of anti-Muslim hate crimes over the past 2 decades, according to FBI statistics.

No documentaries on Christianity or Judaism were shown to students, parents said.
