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.

That is not very mulit-cultural, now, is it?

Certainly there is room in a nation state for historical and political disagreement.

Im reminded of the US Civil War.

NWO: “Certainly there is room in a nation state for historical and political disagreement.”

That’s a mighty fine straw man, since it has nothing to do with the stupidity inherent in denying the holocaust.

Of course people have a right to disagreement, but there are facts and there are lies. Do you mean to say we should taking on holocaust revisionists as if they have legitimate arguments?

The problem isnt Holocaust denial.The problem is Muslim immigration.

If I had a dollar for every lie that the Western Left has peddled in the last half century, Id be able to bail all the worlds banks out today with money to spare. Yet there they are peddling their lies daily in the media, and in schools and universities.

What should we do about that?

And they do peddle some very big lies in support of their agenda.

I just read Michael Shermer's "Why People Believe Weird Things."

It includes a few chapters on Holocaust Denial and one long chapter offers the means by which we know that it can't be reasonably denied.

When a denier gets up in public and makes a vague statement about exaggeration why isn't he - and the students - readily confronted with the facts?

"...Do you mean to say we should taking on holocaust revisionists as if they have legitimate arguments?..."

CSPAN certainly thinks so.

When they invited Deborah Lipstadt to speak about her book on Holocaust denial and the libel trial she had just won against David Irving, they set a condition. They demanded that she "debate" the Holocaust with someone who "disagreed" with her.

She naturally refused, and was promptly disinvited.
