Ideology or Pathology?

The news from Europe regularly presents a disturbing picture of how liberalism affects society. One such story comes from Great Britain. It seems that some schools have dropped teaching about the Holocaust. The reason is a desire to avoid "offending" Muslims.

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

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


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'.

Liberals are notably less sympathetic to the concerns of Christians. It seems that liberals are always hysterical about the looming Christian theocracy. Michelle Malkin points out that several schools have had drills that portray Christians as terrorists.

Why the double standard?
