Need to look for a new school.

Would this bloke have been sacked if he'd said that most IRA bombers were Catholic? I wonder if his Union will stand up for him...

If you're a reader, Mr McLuskey drop me a line and let me know.

Yet again, the conflation of race and adherence to a belief system.

In this case, it's the students who should be sacked.

And bravo Ray Hinds..."I don't think it's important what I think"; thus spake fearless leader.

It remains, however, that the LTTE is the organisation behind the most suicide bombings globally. The Black Tigers (part of the LTTE) are mainly from a marxist-leninist secular ideology with a hindu background.

Terrorist acts are really acts of revenge ideologically dressed up to conceal their futility.

LTTE?
London TransporT Executive?

Liberation Tigers of Tamil Elam do carry out suicide bombings, but if you read through all the terrorist attack data in religionofpeace.com (set aside a couple of weeks) you'll find that worldwide Islamic murderers carry out far more suicide attacks than LTTE.

Ray Hinds.

Surely in the Office he holds, what he thinks is extremely important, indeed, the very core of what he does for a living. Thinking is what he's SUPPOSED to do - unless he's admitting to being little more than a cipher. In which case he's in the wrong job and should resign citing a total lack of personal integrity.

As usual, no-one has attempted to refute what Mr McLuskey said.

The local 'thought police' simply moved in to crush free speech.

But why are the puils upset? I thought suicide bombing was the noblest form of Muslim martyrdom - it was during the Iran/Iraq War and the 'warrior' gets to help himself to 70-odd dark-eyed houris* in paradise.

*Not sure what the reward is for female SBs, of which there are some, but they must be compensated somehow.

Re: IRA bombers being Catholic. It's all about time and place. You can probably get away with that remark on mainland Britain, especially now. But you wouldn't voice that opinion in West Belfast, for example, if you wanted to keep your knee caps and probably your skull also each in one piece.

And no, I don't think Mr McLuskey's union will support him if he is a member of one.

"More than my job's worth etc."

So the deputy head thinks that what he thinks isn't as important as what the kids think?

It's one thing to take the kids' opinions into account, particularly if they are expressed in a rational and reasonable manner (it can happen!). It's another to let them dictate to you.

Is his statement true and factual?If true then it clearly has no place in Alice in Wonderland Britain.

But it's ok for Muslims to say all Jews are monkeys?!?

This was on a BBC comments website - hits the nail on the head!

A cousin trained to be a teacher and was accepted to be a teacher in Nigeria. She enjoyed it so much as the children were keen and eager to learn. Upon her return, after two years, she took up a teaching position at a comprehensive school. After less than two terms she resigned as she had no desire to try to teach pupils who were insulting and disruptive with no desire to learn. With no effective disciplinary sanctions to support her she felt she was wasting her time. I agree with her action but I would also call for less bureaucratic measures in dealing with such pupils.

I agree with our German friend here. It's not like he was saying that most Muslims are suicide bombers, which of course would be wrong, but that most suicide bombers are Muslim. There's a big difference between the two statements.

I note the quote from the the Deputy Head: "It's what the pupils think that were in the classroom at the time. And they were very upset."

If the pupils are upset by the truth, the school has a moral responsibility to dissabuse thgem of their prejudice. Hinds appears to be the one who should be disciplined.

And most western soldiers in muslim lands are murderers and rapists who engage in all kinds of depraved acts of sexual humiliation and sadism? We cannot call them Christians because we know Christians do not act in such an appalling manner. They would never abuse children in their care, cover it up and then be forced to pay out millions of dollars…

No wonder you're such a shit teacher, Frank. You've got issues with not only minority groups (muslims) but also with majority groups, too. i.e the children, who you see as a kind of sub-species of human. If only we could all be as morally correct as Frank Chalk. Keep up the good work and the bigotry Frank. You’ve got your empty-ended acolytes (sorry readers) to keep amused with your world-weary cynicism and threats to your freedom from the sneaky muslims.

Don't fear the truth, Frank. And do us a favour and leave the profession.
