A Muslim religion teacher in Vienna was suspended on Thursday for allegedly giving his students anti-Semitic pamphlets. Austrian Education Minister Claudia Schmied urged the Vienna School Authority to ban the middle school teacher and revoke his teacher's license for encouraging students to abstain from shopping at businesses he listed as "Jewish." Anas Schakfeh, president of the Official Islamic Community in Austria, said the teacher was suspended Thursday and an investigation into his actions is under way. The teacher has not been identified but Schakfeh says he is "around 30 years old" and taught at a regular school in Vienna.
