(CBN / Worthy News)-- The British government has announced that schools will be required to teach "British values." The news comes after Islamists took over several schools in the United Kingdom. This alleged plot to turn British faith-based schools into Muslim training academies has been dubbed "Operation Trojan Horse."
"Individuals with a religious motivation have taken public money and basically created madrassas, basically created religiously motivated schools that promote intolerance, and this in some cases is a criminal enterprise," Islamic expert George Igler said.
The decision comes at a time when Britain was already in an uproar over the explosion of Muslim halal food in the nation's food supply and after revelations that several predominantly Muslim sex gangs around Britain were using English girls as sex slaves.

Conservative Muslim school leaders in Britain's second city, Birmingham, conducted an "organised campaign" to impose faith-based ideology on their pupils, Education Secretary Michael Gove says.
Clashes between Muslim governors and non-Muslim senior staff had led to a "culture of fear and intimidation" in which some head teachers felt forced to leave their jobs, leaving those remaining free to impose a narrow curriculum, the minister said on Monday.
Mr Gove was reporting the findings of two investigations into allegations of an Islamist plot to take over the leadership of state-funded schools in Birmingham with the intention of imposing a religious agenda.
