[It needs to be understood that the article below, translated from a Swedish news site, is not just another story about ‘immigrants’ denying the Holocaust. This is a story about a teacher getting in trouble for stopping an adult immigrant at a learning center who stood up and disrupted a news piece on TV about the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz demanding that everyone agree that all Jews are liars and that this didn’t happen. This is about a teacher being reprimanded for not allowing a student to insist on a fully sharia compliant view of history irrespective of the facts of which the teacher and supervisor are fully aware. – Eeyore]
One of the biggest newspapers in Sweden (Sydsvenskan) which covers Malmö and the surrounding country brings the following choking story about how much power immigrants have attained In Sweden.
During an SFI lesson (Swedish for immigrants/asylants) last week, the students were asked to listen to the news.
One of the issues was about the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp:

During an SFI lesson at the core of last week, the students listen to the news.
One was about the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp.
There are different opinions about what happened next.
The teacher says, that one of the student questioned the truth of holocaust, and that he explained to the student, that it was not the time and the place to discuss the student’s claim.
But the student continued to highly express his views on the Holocaust and Jews, according to the teacher. In the end, the teacher argued against the student and said that the student had to leave the classroom if he could not be quiet.
When a supervisor was required to solve the situation, the student said that he only wanted to provide the class with facts about Holocaust and the stories about concentration camps.
The day after, the teacher was called to a meeting with the school principal. The dialogue was recorded. The newspaper has a copy of this recording.
The meeting was recorded and HD has taken note of the recording.
”The student told me that he had been misunderstood and that he felt the teacher had offended him by asking him to leave the class room and called him a holocaust-denier and a nazi”, the principal says on the recording.
The teacher answered, that the student denied holocaust without any doubt!
“But the student said that he was violated”, the principal answered.
– He has not been singled out. I just told him that it’s not okay to say that the Jews were just lying.
”But the class room was not the right place for this discussion”, the principle said. “You have to be careful about what you are saying, because you have the linguistic issue, and should not violate the students!”
The conversation continues. The coordinator emphasizes that teachers must be careful to discuss, they have a linguistic advantage and must not violate students.
”Ok”, says the teacher, ”but I have played this news program for other classes with no problems at all!”
– You may also keep in mind that what we regard as history is the history we have read. When we have other students who have taken part in other history books, it is no use discussing the facts against facts.
After this meeting the teacher felt himself let down by the school board. He reckoned, that he himself had defended the values stated in the Swedish education institutions about democracy and equality of men, and for that now only being criticized.
”I was indignant during the conversation but tried to be cooperative. I am only a new teacher on the job and I did not want to be a difficult person. But thinking the whole thing through afterwards I found that they (the principal and the board) made a fatal mistake. Holocaust is an important issue”, the teacher says to the newspaper.
