I was sent an email today that claimed lessons about the Holocaust have been removed from the UK’s school history syllabus in case it offends Muslims who are in denial about its existence.
First of all I find it incredible that an entire religious body could deny a plain historical fact. Can this really be so?
And secondly, why on earth would the British Government endorse this sick and disgusting show of weakness to a minority pressure group. If that is what you’d call the entire Muslim community.
It certainly resonates with the current trend to avoid confronting or challenging minority opinion in case it offends people. But to go this far, to run away from the truth, if indeed we are makes me very sad indeed.
In fact, if it is true then I am appalled.
Perhaps these photos were staged?
