British Schools Drop Holocaust Studies to Avoid Offending Muslims

Some schools in Britain are no longer studying the Holocaust for fear of offending resident Muslims (h/t Moonbattery):

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

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

There is also resistance to tackling the 11th century Crusades - where Christians fought Muslim armies for control of Jerusalem - because lessons often contradict what is taught in local mosques.

The findings have prompted claims that some schools are using history 'as a vehicle for promoting political correctness'.

Those of us who wonder why Blair's government has not been more forceful in the hostage situation with its sailors can quit wondering. It seems all of Britain is infected with PC-itis, especially as it pertains to Muslims. My advice to the Brits: start ordering those prayer mats and burqas now and beat the rush.

UPDATE: Brainster asks the crucial question:

Hey, aren't these the same school teachers who courageously teach evolution and sex education despite the fact that Christian fundamentalists object? What could possibly be the difference here?

Since when did revisionist history start to dictate what is taught in the classroom?

Next we'll see headlines announcing "Americans stop breathing to avoid offending Muslims."
