How dare they teach about the holocaust?

And, this is what offends muslims? This story is from the UK...
Schools are dropping the Holocaust from history lessons to avoid offending Muslim pupils, a Governmentbacked 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.

I didn't know Holocaust denial was a value taught in the Koran.

I am Muslim I for one don't understand how anyone can be offended by the holocaust.Also it is quite a disservice to the other non-muslims to be effecting their education to this degree.

This is just another area where parents must pick up the slack of public education.

School administrators have no hesitation in teaching things that may contradict what is taught in a local Christian church or a local Jewish synagogue, but do hesitate when it may contradict what is taught in a local mosque? Incredible!
