• Jews "Barred" from Danish Schools

    From Mullah Lodabullah@3:800/432 to All on Thu Jan 8 00:38:37 2009
    As the Iron Burka descends upon Denmark, schools bar, or attempt to
    bar Jewish children from attending, "for their safety".


    Schools caught up in Palestinian conflict

    Barbed-wire fences and security guards are a regular part of many
    Jewish childrens' school day

    A number of school administrators have come forth in recent days to confirm that they recommend Jewish children should not enrol at their schools.

    According to school administrators, law enforcement officials and social workers, the on-going conflict in Gaza has led to heightened tensions
    between Jews and Arabs - particularly Palestinians - here in Denmark.

    And although few headmasters of schools have faced the situation, most of those at schools with a high percentage of children of Arab descent say
    they try to prevent Jewish parents from enrolling their children there.

    On Monday, headmaster Olav Nielsen of Humlehave School in Odense publicly admitted he would refuse Jewish parentsAE wish to place their child at his school.

    The comments were made following an incident last week in which two Israeli citizen's were shot and wounded at a city shopping centre. Police believe
    the incident was a reaction to the Gaza conflict.

    Other headmasters have now come forth to support Nielsen's position,
    adding that they are putting the child's safety first.
