PC news from Britain

In British schools, mention of the Holocaust is being dropped from history classes because of fear that it might offend Muslims, the Daily Mail reports.
In Britain, the Muslim population is growing rapidly, from immigration and from a higher birth rate among Muslims. Meanwhile, the non-Muslim British are having fewer children. There is talk of the possibility that England will be a majority Muslim nation in the not-too-distant future.
Another trend in schooling is that mention of the Crusades is being downplayed, for the same reason. The British version differs from what is taught in the mosques.
This, in the nation that once encircled the world, invented parliamentary rule and gave birth to the Magna Carta. What the Spanish Armada and Nazi hordes could not accomplish is being done by tolerance for intolerance, and political correctness.
