Quran Instruction on German Sesame Street

Politically Incorrect Blog
Who doesn’t know them? The half-hour Sesame Street series (Note: This is a Geman production, not the American series) for preschool children that are composed of six to ten smaller units and in which real life film reports are shown about situations from children’s everyday life. In the current episode 2609, that aired from 8:30 to 9 on the Kinderkanal (Kika – German “Children’s Channel”), one of these real-life reports dealt with a Muslim girl who takes her German friend with her to Quran instruction.
The story is told quickly: The two go cheerfully to the local mosque and wash their hands and feet first according to prescribed guidelines. They then enter the instruction area where they already expect to see their veiled teacher and many head-covered girls sunken deep into the Quran. Everyone is friendly and kind, and of course both of them put a veil over their head and focus on the Quran. Then, at sometime the Quran instruction is over and the two buoyantly leave the mosque. The message to be conveyed to all of the clueless children in front of the television goes: Such a Quran school like this must certainly be cool!
But see for yourself:
