    The Muslim population in England has been growing steadily, and militant Muslims have engaged in a long campaign or protests, riots, and destruction in response to relatively slight incidents where they claim to be offended by simple truth or innocuous remarks.

    Now the British seem to be responding as the militants hoped: they are changing their school lesson plans to try to avoid the violent reactions of the Mulsim militants and their followers. That the accuracy and historical truth of the lessons is being compromised, seems less important to the Brits than appeasing the threats of the militants.

    What will the Muslim militants choose to riot and kill about next, and what will the Brits grovel and give up the next time?

    Teachers drop the Holocaust to avoid offending Muslims

    Schools are dropping the Holocaust from history lessons to avoid offending Muslim pupils, a Governmentbacked study has revealed.

    It found some teachers are reluctant to cover the atrocity for fear of upsetting students whose beliefs include Holocaust denial.

    There is also resistance to tackling the 11th century Crusades - where Christians fought Muslim armies for control of Jerusalem - because lessons often contradict what is taught in local mosques.

    The findings have prompted claims that some schools are using history 'as a vehicle for promoting political correctness'.

    The study, funded by the Department for Education and Skills, looked into 'emotive and controversial' history teaching in primary and secondary schools.

    It found some teachers are dropping courses covering the Holocaust at the earliest opportunity over fears Muslim pupils might express anti-Semitic and anti-Israel reactions in class.

    The researchers gave the example of a secondary school in an unnamed northern city, which dropped the Holocaust as a subject for GCSE coursework.

    The report said teachers feared confronting 'anti-Semitic sentiment and Holocaust denial among some Muslim pupils'.

    If you're a brown-skinned Muslim and doubt the Holocaust, that's multiculturalism to be encouraged.

    If you're a white-skinned patriot and doubt the Holocaust, that's a hate crime for which you will be jailed.

    Very simple.

    This will be coming to a US school ner you soon

    I wonder if the liberals would be worried about offending someone if a group of students did not believe slavery happened?

    I said my piece on another board. I'm highly disappointed in this and very very outraged by it, but there's naught I can do since I'm not a UK resident.

    If it is part of the national curriculum it is taught, if it is not , then it is not taught.Teachers do not have carte blanche to teach whatever they like.
