You couldn't make it up

Some schools in the UK are dropping the Holocaust from history lessons to "avoid offending Muslim pupils", a Government-backed study has revealed. It found some teachers are reluctant to cover the atrocity for fear of upsetting students whose beliefs include Holocaust denial.

There is also resistance to tackling the 11th century Crusades - where Christians fought Muslim armies for control of Jerusalem - because lessons often contradict what is taught in local mosques.

It found 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.

I can't wait to hear what left-liberal jews have to say about this.

That's easy, nzconservative. They'll ignore it.
