So the Islamic school in Birmingham spits hatred, bigotry and venom against non Muslims, including hatred against another minority group, Hindus, and yet they close down for a day in fear of attack from the 'far right', in order to make themselves look like victims. Pathetic, isn't it?

I think that puts it in a nutshell Suzy. Do damage to others and then complain about potential reactions by unamed groups! Play the victim -it gives you time to think up another more creditable defence.
The problem our wiser society has is to brush aside this tactical distraction and to make plain it's intitial feelings of the wrong that has been done. We should not spend effort in comparing cultural differences, especially when PC demands we criticise our own first -before we look at the faults of others.
Our culture, traditions and mores have developed and will continue to develop because we, for one reason, are able to give ourselves the freedom to criticise them. Those cultures, which are fixed and unchangeable are not able to understand our fluid movement of thought. They are hopeless, useless and reluctant in joining with us to make the world a better place. And that's a big and compicated job.
In these Islamic schools the children, unable to express their anger at their teachers will project it onto us.
We must protect ourselves from what is in effect a morbid stupidity on everyone's part. Anyone with an ounce of study on the psychological consequences of brutality ought to appreciate this.
So, let us apply our laws regarding the treatment of children in education equally, and let us be proud of the effort it took to make them. Those who reject this developed tradition of ours must not be indulged.
