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 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…………
