The co-founder of a Judeo-Christian law firm that fights for faith and freedom says the National Park Service shouldn’t be in the business of promoting Islamic propaganda.

Fox News reported recently that a series of videos produced for the National Park Service shows Muslim students at a Muslim school in New York state blaming hatred against their faith on the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The video, presented below, also claimed that Islam is a pioneer in women's rights, and that there is a "general ignorance about what Islam is." The video also said "Islam within itself means peace. Islam brings nothing but peace if you truly look into it."

David Yerushalmi is co-founder and senior counsel at the American Freedom Law Center.

Yerushalmi, David"Most of the video is made up of these little girls telling us how they are discriminated against and bullied and victimized,” he explains to OneNewsNow. “You know these little girls are not victimized. First of all they go to Muslim schools, so they're not being victimized at school. This was all just a narrative fed to them by the maker of the film. It's just an absurdity."

And Yerushalmi argues there is no arm of the U.S. government that should be in the business of promoting Islamic propaganda. "If a private Muslim organization wants to propagate this nonsense, fine – then have at it,” he states.

The Fox News report also pointed out that the National Park Service did not respond to questions about whether they've produced videos promoting other religions like Christianity or Judaism.
