Vienna School Bans Teaching About Gates of Vienna to Avoid Offending Muslims

One day, if this goes on, schools will no longer be allowed to teach about September 11, just as many European schools are not allowed to teach about the Holocaust, to avoid offending Muslims.
Between the blasphemy/incitement laws and the voluntary censorship, a bubble of historical ignorance is being created and maintained in the hopes that this will prevent acts of Muslim terror and avoid exposing the failure of Muslim integration into multiculturalism.
Out of consideration for immigrants of Turkish background teachers in a Vienna elementary school have been advised to no longer cover the topic in their teaching. Whoever does not comply is threatened with being transferred, reports the newspaper Krone. After all the Turks could feel insulted when they are reminded of their defeats. The Turkish wars are of major significance for Austrian history, however. Vienna alone twice faced major Turkish sieges – and beat back the attackers both times. Parents are angry about the initiative of the Vienna headmasters; even the Krone speaks of a “falsification of history”.
While the story is current, it would appear that similar incidents took place in 2009 and 2012 in Austria. Unfortunately Austria does have an extended history of pandering to Muslim terrorists and Islamists with entirely predictable results. And the Greens appear to be going wild.
