Any British person displaying the most moderate sense of nationalistic feeling is instantly branded a âracistâ â but a former teacher in Tower Hamlets has revealed how intense anti-British racism and hatred by Muslims is tolerated and ignored by the authorities. Former teacher Nicholas Kafouris, a Greek Cypriot, has accused the authorities at Bigland Green Primary School of âupholding racismâ by ignoring complaints that the Muslim children in the school were violently anti-Semitic and anti-Christian. Mr Kafouris told an employment tribunal that the Muslim children, many as young as eight years old, âopenly hailed September 11 hijackers as heroesâ and said they wanted to be âIslamic bombersâ when they grew up. Mr Kafouris said his concerns were dismissed by the school in Shadwell and he is suing Tower Hamlets council, the school, head teacher and the assistant head for racial discrimination. The 12-year veteran teacher described in the opening of the Central London Employment Tribunal this week that his pupilsâ attitudes changed after the September 11 attacks in 2001. He said he had to order his pupils to stop making remarks such as âWe hate the Jewsâ and âthe Christians and Jews are our enemies.â He said he filled out a Racist Incident Reporting Sheet but claimed head teacher Jill Hankey dismissed his concerns and was âvicariously upholding racism and religious hatred.â The refusal to act against the Muslim childrenâs outbursts is in marked contrast to the treatment being dished out to ethnically British children at schools across the country. In October 2009, it was revealed in a report from the Manifesto Club civil liberties group that as many as 40,000 children are officially branded âracistsâ each year as Government rules force schools to investigate every playground incident for âracial bias.â The report revealed that one child had been âseverely disciplinedâ for calling two other children a âchocolate bar.â The report, titled âThe Myth of Racist Kidsâ, said around 280,000 such incidents have been reported by teachers across Britain since the rules were introduced in 2002. Schools Minister Diana Johnson was quoted at the time as saying that âIf racist bullying is not dealt with in schools, this will send a powerful message to children that racism is acceptable, not only in schools but in society as a whole.â It seems that this attitude only applies when white British people are involved, and the Muslim community, which has special status with Tories and Labour alike, are exempt. In a statement submitted to the tribunal, Mr Kafouris said: âAmongst Ms Hankeyâs justifications for the childâs remarks she said: `If the child was older say 15, I might take it more seriously, heâs only nine, heâs only doing it to wind you up.â âI felt the headâs behaviour and conduct towards me amounted to direct religious discrimination. I was intimidated in the way she spoke to me which indicated âDonât come back with such issues againâ,â he said. One law for British people, another for the colonisers.
