British teachers are also reluctant to discuss the medieval Crusades, in which Christians fought Muslim armies for control of Jerusalem: lessons often contradict what is taught in local mosques.

In Cheshire, two students at the Alsager High School were punished by their teacher for refusing to pray to Allah as part of their religious education class.

In Scotland, 30 non-Muslim children from the Parkview Primary School recently were required to visit the Bait ur Rehman Ahmadiyya mosque in the Yorkhill district of Glasgow (videos here and here). At the mosque, the children were instructed to recite the shahada, the Muslim declaration of faith which states: “There is no god but Allah and Mohammed is his messenger.” Muslims are also demanding that Islamic preachers be sent to every school in Scotland to teach children about Islam, ostensibly in an effort to end negative attitudes about Muslims.

British schools are increasingly dropping the Jewish Holocaust from history lessons to avoid offending Muslim pupils, according to a report entitled, Teaching Emotive and Controversial History, commissioned by the Department for Education and Skills.

British teachers are also reluctant to discuss the medieval Crusades, in which Christians fought Muslim armies for control of Jerusalem: lessons often contradict what is taught in local mosques.

In an effort to counter “Islamophobia” in British schools, teachers now are required to teach “key Muslim contributions such as Algebra and the number zero” in math and science courses, even though the concept of zero originated in India.

  1. And the self proclaimed elite see nothing wrong, they are selling the world into slavery so they can maintain personal power for a few more years.

  2. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, all you have to do to become a Muslim is RECITE THE SHAHADA THREE TIMES. Remember that Islam is a club that once you join, you cannot leave!
    Forcing children to recite the shahada may be a way of Islamizing them without them knowing. This is serious stuff!

  3. Luckily i am Dutch – when i applied for a government job and i had to tell about my history working as an intern at a welfare office nobody castigated me when i described how difficult it was to work with foreigners, in fact the man interviewing me for the job said i shouldn’t be worried about talking freely about such issues!

    I was hired.

    The work atmosphere is also very pro-dutch with a socialist colleague of mine talking about foreigners in Dutch society and how much trouble he had with his Moroccan neighbors and another colleague joking about how he is going to drink a beer and eat some pork before sunrise to celebrate Ramadan.

    Of course my area isn’t social but financial – if it where i would be drowning in multicult and policor.

  4. The statement “Muslims invented zero” can be taken two different ways — so convenient for diversity-enthralled educators.

  5. This proves once again how far reaching the infiltration of Islamic influence has penetrated our Governments and their various ministries. There is a need for an immediate and swift purging of all that is Muslim in our mist.

  6. BW it is my understanding that the Indians invented both zero and algebra, the Moslems were the ones the West got them from and thus gives them credit for other peoples work.
