"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

I find this crap tiresome.

Find me a single line in the Qu'ran that does not have a matching line in the old or new testament. You can't. Same source documents. Same basic conclusions.

Now - is Islam incompatible with Western thought? Absolutely.  There are convergences, but by and large there is a huge gap. So teach the kids the gaps. If done right (yes, I know, big if) it will promote understanding of why the two systems of thought will never match up.

I'm not against children learning about different religions in school, as long as each religion is treated truthfully.  But, the implementation of Islam is incompatible with Western society.  We are losing in this area because we are afraid to talk about the problem - it wouldn't be politically correct.
