Fears Over Offending Holocaust Deniers Have Schools Skipping The Holocaust

News came today that some UK schools are avoiding teaching the Holocaust over fears of offending Muslims holocaust deniers.

...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 researchers gave the example of a secondary school in an unnamed northern city, which dropped the Holocaust as a subject for GCSE coursework.

The report said teachers feared confronting 'anti-Semitic sentiment and Holocaust denial among some Muslim pupils'.

So now history is offensive to Muslims? Is there anything that doesn't make Muslims offended? I'm offended that world has to hide in cowardice and not discuss historical events out of fears of reprisals for Islamic extremists.

When is this madness going to end?
