Is it really any wonder that the British have become a society that allows another nation to hold 15 of its sailors hostage without lifting a finger to save them? I thought it was worthwhile to excerpt the story James linked to, in case readers didn’t click on the link:
It found some teachers are reluctant to cover the atrocity for fear of upsetting students whose beliefs include Holocaust denial….
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 report concluded: “In particular settings, teachers of history are unwilling to challenge highly contentious or charged versions of history in which pupils are steeped at home, in their community or in a place of worship.”
But Chris McGovern, history education adviser to the former Tory government, said: “History is not a vehicle for promoting political correctness. Children must have access to knowledge of these controversial subjects, whether palatable or unpalatable.”
It’s a really sick time we live in when the Holocaust is consideredÂ a “contoversial subject” and denial of the atrocity is considered a valid alternative view.
