A Toronto Islamic school under police investigation over its "anti-Semitic" curriculum has apologized to the Jewish community and promised to review its teaching materials following an outcry.
The East End Madrassah acknowledged in a press release that passages of its educational texts that referred to "crafty" and "treacherous Jews" and contrasted Islam with "the Jews and the Nazis" were a mistake.
But the apology did not end the controversy. Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty told reporters on Tuesday he was pleased the matter was being probed by police and school board officials. "There is no room for hatred or intolerance in this province," he said.
