Belgium: Muslim Holocaust Negationism
Via "Islam in Europe" comes this story:
Henri Kichka, from the Union of Jewish deportees in Belgium, had been invited last Friday by the school in Laeken, a Brussels commune, to describe how he survived Buchenwald and his family members were killed in the death camps.
During the meeting with the 150 students, the school was told by a teacher of Islamic religion that Kichka’s account “was largely exaggerated.”
“This never happened to me in 25 years,” Kichka, who is regularly invited to meet young people, told Le Soir.
The school management had decided to film the meeting because, it said, “witnesses disappear and we want to keep tracks.”
On Monday, the trade unions saw the videotape. “To us, there is no doubt, the teacher quoted negationist ideas from Roger Garaudy,” a French revisionist author and philosopher who converted to Islam and called the Holocaust a “myth”.
“This will not remain without effect,” the school said. An administrative investigation has been opened. Education Minister in the French-speaking Belgian government Christian Dupont said he was "shocked" by the "totally unacceptable" comments by the religion teacher. An enquiry has been opened and a legal complaint lodged, the ministry said in a statement. It is studying a videotape of the event, which could lead to the teachers' dismissal.
I'm not impressed by the official response. It will do nothing, not a dent, to the Muslim self-indocrtrination in Holocaust-denial. A much more energetic, widespread and sustainable action must be undertaken to re-educate those Muslim students who populate the public schools and insist on their own grotesque historical narratives about the Holocaust.
