I suppose it was inevitable when the leftist infiltration of various charities, think tanks and public services becomes ever more removed from what ordinary people want, that we should end up with call for ‘muslim’ history to be taught as part of the national curriculum.
Faith campaigners have called on the government to include more Muslim history in the national curriculum, as a way of engaging young Muslim pupils, and educating non-Muslims about the contributions of the Islamic world to science and philosophy.
In February the Department of Education published a draft specification of a new history syllabus which is currently under consultation.
But campaign group Curriculum for Cohesion, backed by the Muslim Council of Britain, claims the draft curriculum ” excludes all reference to Muslims and Islam” and are urging teachers and members of the public to appeal to the government before the consultation ends next week.
It apparently hasn’t struck them that until the late last century apart from the odd slaving raid, there was no muslim history attached to the UK. Nor would I expect that if it were to be taught that the real history including the murders, thefts, barbarism, rapes genocides, racism, misogyny, genital mutilations that make up much of islamic history would be taught come to that.
No, there’s no place for muslim history to be taught in the UK save as a specialist subject somewhat on the lines of the rise of the Nazi Party under Hitler. We (the majority) aren’t muslims and have no desire to be either having too much self respect.
However don’t expect this idea to go away, as far as muslims are concerned our history isn’t important and will simply be erased if they ever get into a position to take over. They do have a ‘history’ of destroying any non islamic past after all. Even in Egypt there are some who would see the Pyramids and Sphinx as well as all the ancient temples and writings demolished.
I suspect the Curriculum for Cohesion is probably a Common Purpose front, it does appear to be following their modus operandi.
I may be wrong, but can see no place for islam in the UK either.
