School Children in the Netherlands Taught to Pray at a Mosque

No, this is not a yoga class, its elementary school in the Netherlands. Many parents are outraged as videos emerge showing their children in Zwolle, Netherlands being taught how to perform muslim prayers. 

The video shows the children separated by gender with the Imam of the mosque teaching the children how Muslims pray and saying "Allahu Akbar", meaning "Allah is Great". The instructions were to put their "elbows on the ground" and "put your hands close to your ears".

Even though this has been going on for several years now, calls for a change in the curriculum have been reported after many Christian parents complained about their children being taught to pray to Allah.
