Muslims Complain British History Curriculum Doesn’t Teach About Muslim “Contribution” to UK

I suppose living on the dole while plotting terrorist attacks didn’t merit an entire chapter. But really writing a history of the UK without including the enormous Muslim contribution is like writing a history of World War II without mentioning the otter.

One of the UK’s leading Islamic organisations has warned that plans to revise the school history curriculum risk ignoring the Muslim contribution to western civilisation – an omission that will only foster alienation.

An estimated 10% of children in Britain’s schools are Muslim, but the Muslim Council of Britain says the proposed new curriculum will not recognise the role Muslims have played in shaping a multicutural Britain and Europe.

It has to be a special Muslim role doesn’t it. Not the special role of the Buddhists or anyone else. Just another Muslim entitlement to an imaginary history and an imaginary superiority.

And the subtext of “alienation” is “make us feel special or we’ll turn extremist and begin offing you.”

Nor, it says, does the curriculum take into account Britain’s history of trade, diplomatic and other relations with Muslim-majority regions, or the longstanding presence of Islam in Britain. The council concludes that the present draft curriculum would fail to teach a “true picture of the past that prepares our children for life” in 21st-century Britain.

How beautifully Orwellian. A true picture of the past actually means a false picture of the past that aligns with the agendas of the present.

But it’s true. Islam’s contribution to the UK does deserve special mention in a way that will prepare students for life in 21st century Britain. And there can be no better example of that than the Muslim slaver raids on coastal towns in Europe from 1500 to 1800 resulting in the enslavement of one million Europeans.

Not content with attacking ships and sailors, the corsairs also sometimes raided coastal settlements, generally running their craft onto unguarded beaches, and creeping up on villages in the dark to snatch their victims and retreat before the alarm could be sounded. Almost all the inhabitants of the village of Baltimore, in Ireland, were taken in this way in 1631, and other attacks were launched against coastal villages in Devon and Cornwall.

The Sack of Baltimore took place in 1631.

The inhabitants were taken completely by surprise. More than 200 armed corsairs landed in the Cove, torching the thatched roofs of the houses and carrying off with them ‘young and old out of their beds’. Moving on to the main village, the pirates took more captives before musket fire and the beating of a drum alerted the remaining villagers and persuaded Reis to end the raid. By that time more than 100 men, women and children had been taken. They were herded back to the ships, which bore them away from the coves of West Cork to the slave markets of North Africa.

In July 1625, a raiding party of corsairs landed at Mount’s Bay in Cornwall, and swept into the parish church where the locals were worshipping. Sixty men, women and children were abducted and carried onto the corsairs’ boats. Looe, a small Cornish port, was also attacked, though its inhabitants had tried to hide or flee. 80 men were taken and the village was burned.

Muslim slavery was revived again by a new wave of Muslim migrants and settlers to the UK who are once again enslaving the natives.

Nine Asian men were jailed last year for between four and 19 years for grooming young white girls in and around the town of Rochdale. Forty-seven children were identified as victims of the exploitation that left many of their lives in tatters.

A gang of nine Asian men in Oxford groomed vulnerable girls as young as 11 for sex, subjecting them to assaults that were “perverted in the extreme”, a court heard today.

Karrar – known as Egyptian Mo – bought the youngest victim from an unnamed man just after her 11th birthday. He branded her with one of her hair pins, which he had twisted into the shape of an ‘M’ and heated with a cigarette lighter. It left a scar on her left buttock.

Teaching British schoolchildren about what happened in Baltimore, Mount’s Bay and Looes might go a long way toward giving them a true picture of the past and an understanding of the Islamic contribution to the UK in the 21st century.

    There is a chance that they did make fish and chips more affordable in some communities. We can't talk about the bad news, just the good.

    Enjoy your lunch and stop being so Islam-o-phobic please. We've got a lot of work to do before we even begin to enjoy our soon-to-be perfect world. We've got to eradicate this Islam-o-phobia for starters.

  • Sound&Fury

    I suppose the Brits could try their hand at writing fiction, if this will satisfy their new "guests".

  • Larry

    They should teach about muslim contribution to British history, all of it, the slave raids, the piracy, the extortion, the destruction of the Western Med sea trade, the Ottoman's alliance with France against Britain, the muslim part in the Indian Mutiny and the barbarity that went with it.

    Give them the lot.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "Give them the lot."

      That's what pisses me off; the audacity of such liars. First they fight to suppress the facts of history and then whine when they're not represented…by that they mean whitewashed.

      Lying in stages; part of the grand jihad.

      • defcon 4

        Whitewashing islam is also the province of the National Geographic and practically every university and college in the USA. At UCLA, a Turkish Muslim professor there flatly denied the Armenian Genocide ever took place and taught Turkish history as such — and no one, anywhere, in the entire history department (or university for that matter) took exception to his doing so.

          That's why I feel such urgency to get involved when I could otherwise find more productive things to do. But the lies have to be confronted.

  • Edward Cline

    I've read other accounts of these raids on European coastal towns netted around two million white Europeans, who vanished into the maws of especially North African slavery to build monuments to their enslaving beys and deys, while the best looking women were drafted into harems all over the Mideast. It isn't for nothing that Western Orientalist painters often did pictures of nude "ivory skinned women" being examined and auctioned off in slave markets. It's estimated that the Moslem slave trade in kidnapped Europeans surpassed the number of black slaves who made "the crossing" to North America. But, while we hear a lot about that trade — facilitated by black tribes that made a living selling other blacks to white slavers — we don't hear much about the Moslem slave trade, which still exists.

    • Larry

      They weren't merely other black tribes, they were muslims, just as they were in East Africa.

      Zanzibar means "Island of the Slave market". If you strike an East African with a muslim name, oh, like Barack Hussein Obama, you can bet your left kidney that he is a descendant of slavers, not just slave owners, but takers and traders.

      It is still very easy to find the Road of Bones up through the Sudan that came into use after the RN suppressed the slave markets on Zanzibar, as it took the Brits another couple of decades to do it further inland.

      One of the major drivers of European colonization of sub-Saharan Africa was eradication of the slave trade.

    The way things are going, maybe the History Curriculum should make reference to the british contribution to the UK…

  • ziontruth

    Give it a little more time and a bit of help from their Leftist MSM allies, and the Muslims in Britain will be believed by all the world to be the original British people, victims of those white European Christian settler-colonist invaders dispossessing, occupying and oppressing them.

  • Softly Bob

    We are now entering the really dangerous phase. If they get away with this, the next couple of generations are going to be well and truly shafted. Twenty years or so, and the British view of history will make Kim Jong-un's North Korean view of history seem authentic.
    There has to be a backlash against this, but I suspect the MSM to play a part in either ignoring it or promoting it and we'll end up with a whimper.
    Meanwhile the caliphate marches on!

  • Lan Astaslem

    Let's see, the muslims introduced honor killings, bomb-laden suicide vests, genital mutilation – what would we do without all those contributions? Oh yeah – almost forgot – algebra!

      "Oh yeah – almost forgot – algebra!"

      And if it were true that they invented zero, then that would mean the world owes them nothing.

    • gee

      Algebra came from the Greeks

      • defcon 4

        Exactly, the muslims appropriated the invention of Algebra in the same way they've tried to appropriate Maimonides as one of their own (yes there are muslims who state Maimonides was muslim).

          "Exactly, the muslims appropriated the invention of Algebra in the same way they've tried to appropriate Maimonides as one of their own (yes there are muslims who state Maimonides was muslim)."

      All science and math come directly from the god of cheese. We must teach these fantastic facts.

  • Trent

    This messing with the British schooling system has to stop. First they managed to ban lessons about the Holocaust, and now they insist that schools teach about Muslim 'contributions', which the Muslim Council of Britian has not bothered to give any examples of.

  • kafir4life

    Oh my! When I saw that headline, I had to do a double take to make sure I wasn't at The Onion!! What a hoot!! Fine. Moon god worshippers want it taught how they've contributed to (any) culture??? They rape. They explode. That's a start.

  • Ar'nun

    I agree. In Brittan and even in the USA, they have completely omitted the importance of Islamic Barbarians and the roles they played in these countries’s history. So I say they should include more of the truth about the relations between the Islamic savages and the Western World. Most Americans have never even heard of the Barbary Wars. Most don't know how the Muslims used savage violence to extort MILLIONS of dollars from Western Countries. Most don't know that the US created its first Navy to combat Islam, because Thomas Jefferson showed that it would be far less expensive to build a substantial Navy than to keep paying Tithes to the Barbary Nations. Most kids have at least heard the Maine Corps (Corpse for Obozo) Hymn, but I doubt you could find 5 kids out of a hundred that could tell you why the first stanza has "Tripoli" in it.

    • defcon 4

      I myself didn't know until recently what the Tripoli stanza referred to. The whitewashing of islamofascism is practically part and parcel of the educational system of the US — from primary and secondary schools all the way up to the "higher" education that universities and colleges supposedly provide these days.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "Most kids have at least heard the Maine Corps (Corpse for Obozo) Hymn, but I doubt you could find 5 kids out of a hundred that could tell you why the first stanza has "Tripoli" in it."

      I doubt you can find 1 out of 10,000 or even 1 out of 10,000,000 who do. I'm not joking. Nobody is taught that history in public schools. Nobody.

  • TimN

    Britain's history books should recognize Islam's many great and wonderful contributions to British history and culture:
    umm… like.. for example….Ummm…
    Okay so it's a short section. A really, really short section.

  • LindaRivera

    UK ruling elites have a MORAL and ETHICAL responsibility to tell the TRUTH about Islam. Brits (and Europeans) MUST be educated in schools, colleges, universities, churches, synagogues, Hindu temples, community centers and other places about Muslims and their taking slaves of Britons and Europeans centuries ago, and that in our day, Muslim immigrants have ENSLAVED many thousands of terrorized British children – gang raping the children and forcing the non-Muslim children into prostitution.

    For UK and European ruling elites to not educate their citizens about what Muslims have done in the past and are doing in the present, is an UNFORGIVABLE ACT of TREASON that aids and abets the cruel Muslim rape war against Brits and Europeans.

    Why are these Muslim FILTH, INHUMAN, demonic gang-rapists still walking this earth?
    Why have they not been put to death already?

    BARE NAKED ISLAM: Traumatized 16-year-old British girl was brutally raped by 90 different Muslim men in one weekend
    imagesEven worse, these savage attacks happened after authorities had said the girl was not at risk. Once shielded by the media, these gangs of Muslim (called ‘Asians’ in the UK) groomers (pimps) who abduct, rape, and prostitute young white girls are the focus of a shocking new report into modern-day sex slavery in the UK by the Centre for Social Justice…

    I hold every government and Prime Minister, starting with Tony Blair, one hundred percent responsible for every single savage sexual, physical attack and mental torment on Britain’s terrified, defenseless non-Muslim children by demonic, INHUMAN barbaric Muslim monsters. It is the British government who are GUILTY of MERCILESSLY colonizing Britain with MILLIONS of Muslims whose Quran and mosques commands them to wage jihad against non-Muslims.

    I also hold the police, care homes, social agencies, judges and CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) one hundred percent responsible for the savage Muslim crimes and severe PERSECUTION of non-Muslim children. They REFUSED to protect the terrorized child victims. They are COMPLICIT in the Muslim crimes.

    The girl reported the abuse to police in 2008 but the CPS decided not to prosecute because they did not believe a jury would find her credible. A dirty LIE from the pit of hell! The dreadful Muslim evil has been going on for MANY years. It was reported several years before 2008.

    CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) identify with EVIL. They identify with the perverted, savage Muslim monster gang-rapists. Their sole goal was to PROTECT the Muslim FILTH and allow the INHUMAN, demonic Muslim monsters to continue subjecting Britain’s non-Muslim children to extreme physical and sexual violence.

    In OBEDIENCE to the Quran, devout Muslims are waging war against Britain and waging RAPE WAR against British children with the full cooperation of UK ruling elites.

  • LindaRivera

    The children lived with the daily horror that there was no one to help them. Appealing to the police made the children’s suffering even worse. It is a nightmare Britain that has been DELIBERATELY created by Britain-hater ruling elites ruthlessly colonizing the nation with millions of infidel-hater Quran-obedient Muslims. Which do Western ruling elites regard as a crime? Islamophobia: the fear of Muslim barbarism, or the many and terrible acts of inhuman, Muslim barbarism?

    UK ruling elites sole purpose is to protect global Islam and Muslims. NOT Britain's severely persecuted, suffering children. Elites identify with satanic perpetrators.

    Jimmy Savile the tip of the iceberg. Jersey Abuse Case Exposes Vast Conspiracy
    Between England and France lies a small British island called Jersey and one called Guernsey.
    The tiny Jersey Island has been the center of an investigation into child abuse, torture and murder which exposes the island's connection to a global conspiracy of satanic ritual abuse and coverup.

    …Despite the fact that police had 1,776 statements from 192 victims, identifying 151
    abusers only the 7 low level staff were charged. Police have long had more than sufficient evidence for more arrests and indictments but orders from higher up have prevented prosecutions of any but the lower level perpetrators….

    Some of the officials in Jersey or Britain who tried to obstruct, derail or who opposed the investigation include: …Jack Straw – British MP, home secretary…

    Anyone who doubts the notion that Jersey is an island run by satanists only needs to drive around the island and see the statues in front yards and gardens which are blatantly satanic. One garden has a 12 foot high statue of satan…

    London – Islington Case Pedophile Case
    In the London Borough of Islington, all of Islington's 12 children's homes were run by pedophiles from the 70's up until the early 90's and protected by the London government and Britain's national government. Victims vigorously pursued justice and appealed to all levels of government for help but were blocked at every turn…

    What takes place in Britain, takes place globally by the elites…the children barbarically murdered by the satanists are safe at last. The silent screams; the tears that never stopped inside are gone. The fear; the terror; the powerlessness, and helplessness, the terrible physical pain and emotional agony are no more. The revolting spiritual abuse has stopped. Precious children, you are FREE at last, safe forever with God and the angels. Rest in eternal peace. You are so precious.

  • PamM

    This won't do at all. I believe that the islamic role in British history should definitely be included in the school curriculum.

    How could they possibly forget the role of the Barbary corsairs preying not only on coastal villages as far north as Britain but also on shipping plying their trade in the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean. Then of course we have the considerable Muslim participation in the Indian Mutiny, where they committed some of the worst atrocities. We cannot forget the murder of General Gordon in Khartoum, along with the massacre of countless others. Nor should we omit the fact that Muslims were the enemy at battles such as Tel el Kebir and Omdurman. I think the important role of the Royal Navy in ending the long standing and highly profitable Muslim trade in black slaves in the Indian Ocean would also be worthy of inclusion.

    Above all though I think that British schoolchildren should be told that for 1400 years Islam has been the unremitting enemy of Western civilisation, that it has pursued a policy of naked and continual aggression whenever it has felt strong enough to do so, and that its goal has always been the total destruction of European civilisation and the suppression of its people under the islamic sharia.

    Rectify is the story of a man who was sentenced to death for a crime he didn’t commit, and spent 19 years on death row before getting out. Much like in my own real life case, the local politicians refuse to admit he’s innocent even after DNA testing points towards someone else. In fact, there was so much about this show that mirrored my own life I began to wonder how much of my story had crept into the script.

    The main character is a man named Daniel. When you look at his eyes, you’re looking into the eyes of a man who has seen Hell. There are moments when he looks like he’s about to begin screaming at any second, and never stop. The first time you see this is in episode one, when he’s about to leave the prison. The guard is treating him like a human being, and it’s evident this hasn’t happened in an extremely long time. You see the confusion on his face as he wrestles with suddenly being treated decently by the same people who have treated him like an animal for years. He can’t quite process it. I know that look well. As he’s about to leave the prison, the guard helps him tie his necktie, as he can no longer remember how to do it himself.
