Christian Kayla Normandin, a mom from Florida, posted a 15 minute long rant on Facebook about her child’s high school history book because it included information about Islam. The chapter focused on the Islamic world mainly focuses on the religion’s history and the region’s contribution to science.

“Now there is one whole chapter, and it’s chapter 10 that starts on page 116 and goes to 151, and it tells nothing — basically everything about Muslim civilizations and ‘she-hara’ (sic) law. You name it — it talks about it,” said Normandin.

“It even has the origin of ‘Ay-rabic’ numerals,” she added, reading from the book. “So Eastern Muslim regions, Western Muslim regions, and Modern Western. And it shows you actually how to write ’em.”
