Colleges in the UK have been told to 'tone down' their support of religious extremism in their classrooms, as the government believes that they are a festering mess of potential suicide bombers and terrorists.
A specialist technology college, in Ashton near Manchester, has come under specific attack from the Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith.
Dean of the college, John Thomas, cannot believe the accusation.
"We got an official email from the Home Secretary's secretary yesterday morning," said Thomas. "It highlighted several elements of the curriculum that they believed were particularly prone to fostering domestic terrorism."
The courses under scrutiny at the college were the Advanced Bomb Making course that deals with how to construct nail bombs and plastic explosives, and the Why the West is Evil religious eduction course, which tells students how the afterlife is a cool place to be, should you die in the fight against the infidel.
"These two courses are just small elements of Electronic Design and RE," Thomas explained. "In my opinion both are essential for the students to get a fully rounded education in both areas. The Bomb making course also teaches about electronic timers and magnetic attachment, both with completely peaceful purposes. Semtex Mixing brings advanced chemistry to a wider audience. As to the RE course, we feel it is important that students are taught all view points so they are better able to chose a religion for themselves."
Investigation into British colleges continues.
