Muslim School in UK: No Female Science Teachers Wanted

Some might look at this as a case of the glass being half-empty, but at least they’re hiring a science teacher. That’s already progress.

Let’s hope he teaches something besides chemistry.

A Muslim boys’ school is facing claims of segregation after advertising for a temporary science teacher but making clear that women need not apply.

The advert published by the outsourcing company Capita requested a “Male Science Teacher” to cover lessons, including some mathematics classes, until the end of the current academic year on a short term contract for up to £150 a day.

It follows a storm over allegations that non-Muslim female staff at the Al-Madinah free school in Derby had been forced to wear headscarves in line with strict Islamic practices.

But it follows a similar advertisement placed by the Madani Boys School in Leicester last month for the post of “Male Technician” in the IT department.

The trouble is that a lot of these schools receive government funding. Tony Blair began funding Muslim schools, which until then were privately funded, opening up a whole can of worms.

I doubt that a female teacher would be particularly comfortable teaching in this school anyway considering some of the complaints by female teachers in UK Muslim schools. Banning them from putting up such ads or even forcing them to hire female teachers will accomplish nothing because they will simply harass them until they resign.

Personally I think that a school should be able to hire a teacher or any race, sex or religion it wants; but I think the left needs to be honest that such discrimination is a consequence of multiculturalism.

And that’s the important part.

The left pretends that its multicultural system is more inclusive. It’s not. It adds tiers of exclusivity and discrimination.

If you want to fill the country with Muslims from Pakistan, that means that women in the UK will begin experiencing some of the discrimination that women in Pakistan do.

It’s time for the left to have a serious dialogue about that instead of mumbling something about the BNP or the EDL, discrimination and the Iraq War and sidling away.

    If the Muslims say “No” to female science teachers in the UK that will be just fine for UK women. As long it is not the Jews or Christians making the demands. Some religions are just more equal than others.

    Fit right in with us, don’t they. How soon can we get another 200,000 of these aliens?

    Suppose you are in charge of a nation’s policy for protecting the native population, culture, societal norms, and otherwise ensuring the peace and tranquility of the nation from within its borders. And then you import hundreds of thousands of incompatible aliens into the country. Uh, like, what else were you expecting, dumbass?!

    This is more like treason than immigration policy!

    • Fred Mertz

      Only AFTER the foreign population’s children exceed the number of native children (thus guaranteeing who the future rulers will be) does the government concede that their might be a problem. Treason is right.

      The Left has a death wish…for the citizens of any country where they manage to get control. If they aren’t scheming to kill people with death panels, or some other form of negative eugenics, they are importing Muslims to help do the job.

      Both Islam and Marxism are transnationalist ideologies, therefore, any adherent is automatically a traitor to their country. One can’t believe in liberal democracy and either of these two cults simultaneously, since both openly advocate the destruction of representative government.

      Obama was a traitor before he set foot in the Whitehouse, and he’s been proving it ever since.

  • petsnpeopletoo

    Muslims don’t have ANY business living in ANY country that is based on Christianity. They are NOT and NEVER will be…They are a cult raised from babyhood to kill. You can’t teach them anything else. They are a sub human species untameable and should be left in the middle east away from the rest of humanity…They will pretend like they love you as their best friend but when their Quran calls for your Jihad, they will and MUST kill you or they think they will go to hell…..WAKE UP & SEND THEM BACK TO THE MIDDLE EAST AWAY FROM our HUMANE Societies!

      How about the country based on Judaism? Should Muslims have the right to reside there?

      • SCREW SOCIALISM

        How about the country based on Hinduism? Should Muslims have the right to reside there?

      • Alisia S

        No, they should not. Nor should Christians or Jews have the right to reside in Pakistan. There is no right to reside in a country foreign to you. You may be invited in but it isn’t a right. Again, we get back to why nations have borders to begin with. The EU notion of a borderless planet is total BS and is driven by corporate greed and leftist maniacs who know nothing about the human condition.

        The bottom line is that every nation has the right to decide who its members are.

        • Veracious_one

          Pakistan’s Christians are just as Pakistani as are Pakistan’s Muslims…Why should they be denied the right to live in their own country

          • Alisia S

            I was speaking in terms of immigration. The pre-existing population and/or those who convert to a minority religion is a different can of worms. Most sane nations have protections for their minority populations.

        • truebearing

          “leftist maniacs who know nothing about the human condition.”

          And they care even less about the human condition than they know

  • Chris Gait

    Fundamentalist Muslim schools have science teachers? Well knock me down with a feather.

  • Anukem Jihadi

    the left doesn’t do serious dialogue anymore

  • seewithyourowneyes

    The real “war on women” is being waged by the multi-culturalists.

  • wileyvet

    Male science teacher wanted. Must provide own shoe for beating students with, and no teaching any Jew Science.

    • Softly Bob

      If the Muslims really didn’t teach Jew science then Iran would have no nukes for starters.

      • Daniel Greenfield

        USSR managed it, but they only banned Cybernetics as a Jewish science.

  • truebearing

    Somehow, putting “Muslim” and “science” together isn’t a very comforting combination. It’s kind of like “can of gasoline” and “arsonist,” only worse.

    Anti-modern Muslims are not the only nay-sayers regarding science instruction. The British Left has taken the vanguard in defying empiricism of all kinds. See http://clarespark.com/2010/01/03/this-witch-is-not-for-burning-science-as-magic/. “This witch is not for burning: Science as Magic.”
