The reasoning here goes like this: These people fervently believe lies, rather than the truth, so let’s not anger them by telling them the truth. If anything defines the mental state of dhimmitude, it’s this.
“Teachers drop the Holocaust to avoid offending Muslims,” by Laura Clark in the Daily Mail, with thanks to all who sent this in:
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’.
Stop the presses!
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.
In saner days that would have been an opportunity to introduce those Muslim pupils to some reality. Not any more.
