Not my history and not my country’s history either

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.

Huffington Post.

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.

    There are bits of Muslim history which are compatible with British history, such as the Crusades, the involvement of Arab traders in the 18th Century slave trade, the Barbary Pirates, the fall of the Murghal Empire and its replacement with the British East India Company. In modern history how about the Bosnian SS Mussulman Division? Also the root cause of the Renaissance, the capture of Constantinople by the Turks and the refugees fuelling the innovations in Western Europe and the Rhomanoi becoming the Romanovs. Also the siege of Vienna and the earlier battles of Charles Martell.

    I can think of lots of relevant Muslim history to teach, but it might upset the Curriculum for Cohesion people.

      XX Bosnian SS Mussulman Division? XX

      Handschar was the name “Handschar Division”, NOT “Musselman Division”.

    We have to be careful not to allow the comparison of apples with oranges.

    Islam is a religion not a race, therefore Muslim history is comparable only with the history of the Christian and Catholic church, with Budhism and the religions of the North American Indians.

    It has no place in the history of Nations, other than to say that some of the people of those nations followed Islam, as much as others followed Christianity or Catholicism.

    History must be kept in context, and so must religions.

    As we speak, history is being rewritten and across this land – in universities – the ‘brotherhood grows’ – capture the seats of learning and the battle is nigh on over.
    We should teach, how they burnt the great library in Alexandria in 642 although some dispute it now [I wonder?] – barbarism from the Muslim horde – nay perish the thought – Egypt, now a bastion of tolerance and peace.

    “….a way of engaging young Muslim pupils, and educating non-Muslims about the contributions of the Islamic world to science and philosophy.”

    Not inclusive enough ! Where is the engagement of skinheads? What about the contributions of National Socialists to railway timetabling and the welcoming of foreign labour in essential industries?

    Barbary corsairs raiding Cornish ports up to the early 17th century? The Corsairs of the time being Moslem slavers. That’s some real history for you.

    QM, hear hear. My sentiments exactly. And the term ‘curriculum for cohesion’ just smacks of socialism in its ambivalence and sinister undertones.

    I’m afraid I can’t read the comments as they are overlapped by the ‘Latest Comments’, ‘Most read’ and ‘Most Comments’ strips. Please could you do something about this? Thank you.
