Chain Email: Fear of MUSLIMS

No matter how cute, religious, serious or threatening they are, I never forward chain letters. I rarely read them, and despite what I'm writing here today, will continue to not do so. I am especially offended by the assumption that I am either credulous or superstitious enough to believe their threats of dire consequences for not forwarding them. Are you one of those people who originate these things? Fuck you then.

This post was prompted today by a chain email I received from a co-worker, called "IKE KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING. This email is worth reading despite the fact that the original author of the email incorrectly assumed the entire UK school system had dropped the Jewish holocaust and Crusades from it's curriculum. Sadly, such pressures are mounting in the Western world, out of a misguided desire not to offend Muslim students. News stories from last year tell of a Government-backed report indicating that some schools in the United Kingdom have in fact done so. I have no doubt that there are many cute and fuzzy-bunny minded teachers here too who have personally chosen not to teach these potentially controversial subjects.

This is frightening on several levels.

Most notably, Muslim children who are taught a distorted or outright false view of history at home or in the mosque are not taught the truth at school. Ours is a society of immigrants, which successfully assimilated or acculturated all creeds who came here. Now in the interests of multicultural sensitivity, newcomers to our society are allowed to bring all their old hatreds from the old world to the new world, UNCHALLENGED. As Barry Rubin points out in the New York Post, these soft-headed non-thinkers are condemning Muslim children to continued slavery to the radical Islamists who dominate their culture.

As for the email "Ike Knew what he was Doing," the text is reprinted below. I've only posted two photos, trust me, they're pretty gruesome.

It is a matter of history that when Supreme
Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight
Eisenhower, found 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
track of history some bastard will get up and say
that this never happened.'

'All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is
for good men to do nothing'
Edmund Burke

This week, the UK removed The Holocaust from its
school curriculum because it 'offended' the Muslim
population which claims it never occurred.

This is a frightening portent of the fear that is
gripping the world and how easily each country is
giving in to it.

These photos were taken in Germany by J. Chanslor,
an Army Master Sergeant who served in
World War II from 1942 until 1945.

It is now more than 60 years after the Second
World War in Europe ended.

This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in
memory of the six million Jews, 20 million Russians,
10 million Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who
murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and
humiliated with the German and Russian peoples
looking the other way!
Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others,
claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it is
imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

This e-mail is intended to reach 40 million people

Be a link in the memorial chain and help
distribute this around the world.

Don't just delete this. It will only take a minute
to pass this along. Let's cover the world and
remember because we
cannot let it ever happen again.
