There can be no greater indication that the Islamists are winning the fight for hearts and minds than this recent story out of the UK. Apparently, teachers feel nervous and afraid about teaching their students lessons on 9/11 because they don’t want to be accused of Islamophobia. Teachers in Britain who have Muslim students in their classes are worried that, by delving into the (true, indisputable) facts about one of the worst terrorist attacks in history, they will accidentally offend parents.
Kamal Hanif, a government-appointed educator charged with turning schools around, advised that while he was aware that some teachers were uncomfortable with 9/11 lessons, their fears were unnecessary.
“Teachers sometimes have a fear that this might be controversial,” he said. “They think if we teach about this we might get Muslim parents objecting. There is a fear [among teachers] but it is not really grounded in anything. It is based on their stereotypical view of a community as opposed to the reality. It is very misplaced. It is an assumption.”
Now, we don’t know Mr. Hanif’s religious background, but you can read into his name what you will. All we know is that his defense for this sounds just like the politically-correct BS you hear from Islamists and Islam apologists. And since you clearly don’t have to be a Muslim to fall for this propaganda, it really doesn’t matter whether Mr. Hanif prays at a church, synagogue, or a mosque. This is an infection that has spread to liberals of every stripe and creed.
The truth is that these teachers are very much justified in their fears, and it’s because the Islamists are winning. They have successfully convinced the West, in the 16 years since 9/11, that we have to walk on eggshells when talking about the connection between Islam and terrorism. That we have to deny the facts that are right in front of our faces. That it is bigoted and heartless to place any blame WHATSOEVER for terrorism on the Islamic faith. That, indeed, there is no correlation between the Quranic teachings and the views of Al Qaeda and ISIS.
It is, ultimately, a denial of reality, and it can’t be overstated how effective they have been in pulling the wool over people’s eyes.
