UK debates removal of Holocaust from textbooks

Postby Satya » Thu Jun 17, 2010 7:47 am

Eisenhower Warned Us...

It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, saw the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

He did this because he said, in words to this effect:

'Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened'

This week, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it 'offends' the Muslim population which claims it never occurred.

What other events will have 'never occurred' fifty years from now?

Muuhh?

I know I haven't been reading the news as diligently as usual, this week, but that seems a pretty major article to miss. Do you have any links to read further at?

It was originally a "hoax" - an email chain that was based on the misinterpretation of a UK policy wherein controversial or otherwise emotionally-charged material was avoided at the discretion of instructors; but that was back in 2007. I'll try to find it, but apparently there is new, more factual discussion about skimming such topics where it might inflame certain... sensibilities.

Your post uses the exact wording of the email classified as false on snopes.

Also it wasn't Germans who did the holocaust but them Moslums bad guys!

Germans are white, ergo they're never badguys. Watch out or the terroristtiissimos will get you! HIDE UNDER YOUR BED! IT'S THE ONLY SAFE PLACE!

I have no idea what you're trying to get across, Adam.

Nobody is saying that Muslims were responsible for the Holocaust. Nobody is saying anything even remotely close to that. Instead, they're saying that there exists a significant Holocaust-denying movement in the Muslim community.

On the other hand, public Holocaust denial is illegal in Germany, so such movements are limited. That's not to say that the laws prohibiting the denial are right (I don't think they are), just that they exist and are pretty effective at limiting that sort of speech and widespread popularity of the belief.

Now, if you want to argue that such deniers aren't present and popular in the Muslim community, that's something we can discuss. But whatever it is you're trying to do right now isn't working.

On a less jovial note, using the memory of the holocaust to spread distrust of an entire group of people is really kind of sick.

Missed this thread. Satya is now the factual equivalent of an email chain.

And he used to be so smart.

And you used to be so... actually, no; you never were any of those things I was thinking - relevant, interesting, funny.

Haha, hey Satya, I just got an email about increasing penis length, that should solve your anger issues, and it must be true since it came in an email. You get a free iPod too!

Laughing at you solves my anger problem. Pounding your girlfriend helps too.

I'm sure you imagining that you're pounding my girlfriend helps your sad lonely nights when no one will come near you because you're such a paranoid freak, so by all means go ahead, I'm a charitable person and I like to know you're happy.

I laughed a little too much. You don't make me laugh often, Syphon, but you got me, there.
