When future historians look back on the cause of our demise as a free people, they will consider the results of this study of British schools: the schools are dropping the holocaust from history lessons to avoid offending Muslim pupils.
The study found some teachers are reluctant to cover the atrocity for fear of upsetting students whose beliefs include holocaust denial.
There is also resistance to studying the 11th century crusades when Christians fought Muslims for control of Jerusalem because lessons contradict what is taught in mosques.
This is worse than political correctness. It is propaganda. It is also a signal to radical Muslims that they are winning and we in the west are willing to surrender to them without a fight. The fault with this thinking, of course, is that by teaching lies and not teaching truth, they won’t cut our throats. Just the opposite. They will be encouraged to do so because we will be telling them we are willing to live under their dominance. God help us…ours, not theirs.
