Bolton bans Holocaust Day (English City Bows to Muslim Pressure)
Jewish Telegraph ^ | January 27, 2007

Posted on 01/27/2007 10:46:41 AM PST by West Coast Conservative

IN A move widely seen to be bowing to Muslim pressure, Bolton Council has scrapped its Holocaust Memorial Day event.

The council is to replace it with a Genocide Memorial Day in June. This is in line with the policy of the Muslim Council of Britain, which continues to boycott HMD and is asking for a Genocide Day, which will also mark "the ongoing genocide and human rights abuses of Palestinians" by Israelis.

The council decision was made in consultation with the town's Interfaith Council.

But Rabbi Joseph Lever of United Synagogue who has participated in the Bolton event for around three years was not consulted on the decision. He said: "I mourn the fact that the Holocaust Memorial Day event will not take place in Bolton this year."

Louis Rapaport, president of the Jewish Representative Council of Greater Manchester, was equally disappointed that the Jewish community was not consulted.

He said: "Bolton, alone of all the local authorities in our area, is not having an HMD event which is a government recommendation." He added: "There may not be many Jews in Bolton but the day is supposed to have an educational message to the whole community.

"I can't help feeling the decision was influenced by Bolton's large Muslim community."

Holocaust educator David Arnold said: "It is more than unfortunate that Bolton has seen fit to trivialise the remembrance of the Shoah."

Mr Arnold regretted the intrusion of "politics" into the issue.

He said: "It is entirely inappropriate and stems from a failure to understand the issues."

This is just getting outrageous. Other than that, I can't say anything more.

They should have changed it to Armenian Genocide Day.

This generation of Britons in no way resembles the generation of WW2 who so bravely and gallantly refused to fall to the Nazis. God help us all.

Sooner or later, there will be a backlash against the muslim crap. Then the muslims may (hopefully not) get to know what it really is like to die in large numbers.

The Muslims are so brain dead and uncreative they have to hijack Holocaust memorial day for the Jews. Pathetic. Watch these puercos make a mess of this new "Genocide Day"

Britain may yet be saved, but it won't be by the educated, the urbane, but by the soccer hooligan.

The Muslims hate Jews passionately. I don't see a future for European Jewry.
