Star of David

Aftenposten Norway reported A municipally employed teacher in Kristiansand has been prevented from wearing a Star of David around his neck. Kristiansand Adult Education Center, where the man works, ruled that the Jewish symbol could be deemed a provocation towards the many Muslim students at the school. Teacher Inge Telhaug said he feels this is a violation of his freedom of speech. "I can't accept this. It is a small star, 16 millimeters (0.6 inches) that I have around my neck, usually under a T-shirt. I see it as my right to wear it," Telhaug told NRK. Telhaug teaches immigrants Norwegian language and culture at the education center. Telhaug is not Jewish. "I see it as the oldest religious symbol we have in our culture, because without Judaism there would be no Christianity," Telhaug. The principal of the school, Kjell Gislefoss, feels that the Star of David can also be interpreted as a political symbol for the state of Israel, and is afraid the star can provoke and offend students, for example immigrants from the Palestinian territories.

Why is everyone so fearful of offending Muslims? I am offended by the many things done to not offend Muslims. Does anyone care about that?

This man cannot wear an 0.6 inch religious symbol around his neck, while earlier I blogged about a stupid judge in San Diego overturning the will of 76% of the voters to transfer a war memorial to the Federal Government so that a 43 foot cross does not have to be destroyed, as a few athiests want. Why are Christian and Jewish symbols disresptected, while people are so fearful of offending Muslims that they have to ban images of Winnie the Pooh's friend Piglet, and they want to change the British Flag

Soon the Star of David will be banned in all of Eurabia as our Muslim overlords install their caliphate. I for one am very afraid.
