Seventh century education for Muslim students

As is this is a surprise:
BBC Panorama found that more than 40 Saudi Students' Schools and Clubs are teaching the official Saudi national curriculum to about 5,000 pupils.

One text book shows how the hands and feet of thieves are chopped off.

The Saudi government said it had no official ties to the part-time schools and clubs and did not endorse them.

However, a building in west London where Panorama obtained one of the text books is owned by the Saudi government.
One of the text books asks children to list the "reprehensible" qualities of Jewish people. A text for younger children asks what happens to someone who dies who is not a believer in Islam - the answer given in the text book is "hellfire".

Another text describes the punishment for gay sex as death and states a difference of opinion about whether it should be carried out by stoning, burning with fire or throwing the person over a cliff.
The appropriate punishment for gay homosexuals is, or course, stoning, burning with fire and throwing the offender over a a cliff.

Part of me has no sympathy for the UK. You dug your own grave (and continue to dig it).

Why the hell isn't anyone questioning Saudi money paying for Australian Islamic education?

You wouldn't let a paedophile bankroll the local kindergarten...
