Holocaust Denial

holocaust.jpg There is a recent email circulating that evokes at first the thought of “Urban Legend” or “Hoax” and seems initially as though it should be disregarded as nonsense.  So a trip to snopes.com reveals that it is in at least part very true.  The subject concerns the schools in the United Kingdom discontinuing teaching about the Holocaust because of sensitivities of certain Muslim students and their tendency towards Holocaust denial.  A simple reading of said e-mail reveals that the UK has removed the Holocaust from school curriculum and although it doesn’t so state, suggests that the UK has removed this subject from all schools curriculum.  The truth (according to Scopes with an April, 2007 entry) is that in actuality the History Department of “only” a single High School has removed the Holocaust from the school curriculum because according to Snopes it “wished to avoid confronting anti-Semitic sentiment and Holocaust denial among some Muslim pupils.” 

Wow, so maybe it is true.  I wonder if we will hear about this on CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, NY Times, LA Times, etc.  I for one will not be holding my breath.  I am sure we would hear instantaneously, and rightly so, if only one high school in the south of the US decided to ban teaching about the Civil Rights movement and the emancipation of Slaves because it wished to avoid confronting anti-black sentiment and Slavery denial and revisionism among some pupils of families from the KKK.  Maybe all of a sudden the left would get it.   I believe that this country is in denial of creeping anti-Semitism and have not connected the linkage of Muslim appeasement to this in particular and the general struggle this world is in against terrorist and terrorist sympathizers.  I hope the left is listening…………  http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/holocaust.asp

    YAY i’m so glad you are finally blogging! And this is totally whack that people deny the holocaust and it could be accepted as PC to do so.

    the left never listens….they only talk, and talk, and talk- change their story then talk some more.

    thanks for doing the detective work for me:-) i’ll just read your blog and then i’ll sound so smart at gatherings when i can talk intelligently about such topics.

    if you are responsible for the intelligent, firey spirit in your daughter, congratulations. she is a great inspiration.

    I too read that entry on Snopes (ironic slip that you typed “Scopes”)when I got an emailing about this, and found the facts that education about the Holocaust is mandated in England (although optional in the northern UK,)the decision was to eliminate that unit for a year in a high school where it had been being taught but wasn’t mandatory — in order to prevent possibly violent conflict — and that it was not a change of national policy, but that it did get some national attention, encouraging.

    I find your assessment and conclusion puzzling, and your analogy alarming. Do you really equate eliminating the history of the Slave Trade, Civil War, Emancipation, Civil Rights movement — basically, the bulk of US history between 1768 and 1968 — from a school’s curriculum with the eliminating of some events of WW II that, while undeniably barbaric, happened in Europe between 1935 and 1945?
    Do you really mean to put Moslem students and their families in the same box as the KKK? Last I heard, the KKK was ready to burn all of us: Jewish, Moslem, Black — take a number.

    Hey Allison Sweetie:

    If they are Holocaust Deniers I sure would. The interesting point is that you wouldn’t. Are you revealing something here more sinister yourself.

    Save All Paperwork: Whatever paperwork arrives with your parts or which is
    provided from the seller should be maintained. It’s a good idea to have separate email promotions for prospects and customers, too, because you typically need to send different information to the different groups. Therefore it’s better to
    always do the intelligent point and take these tips.
