Once again we see the tolerant and peaceful religion of Islam on display. Gary Smith, the head of religious education at Central Foundation Girls' School in Bow, east London was brutally attacked by four men wielding a knife, and iron bar, and a cement block. Mr. Smith suffered a slashed face and fractured skull. His crime? Teaching Muslim girls religion.
This horrific act is typical of the extremist that cling to a religion still stuck in the 7th century.
Four men launched a horrific attack on a teacher in which they slashed his face and left him with a fractured skull because they did not approve of him teaching religion to Muslim girls.

Mr Smith, who is head of religious education at Central Foundation Girls' School in Bow, east London, also suffered a fractured skull.
The four now face a jail sentence.
Detectives made secret recordings of the gang's plot to attack Mr Smith prior to the brutal assault.
The covert audio probe captured the gang condemning Mr Smith for 'teaching other religions to our sisters', the court heard.
The RE teacher was targeted as he made his way on foot along Burdett Road in nearby Mile End on July 12 last year, Snaresbrook Crown Court was told.
Prosecutor Sarah Whitehouse told the court: 'The evidence from what was said on the probe points overwhelmingly to a religious motive for this attack.'
It is believed the gang had made two earlier attempts to get at the teacher.
They were due to stand trial for the attack at Snaresbrook Crown Court but pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm with intent.
