It’s a puzzle. How is it that the National Education Union turned out in force for the pro-Palestine protests at the weekend but can’t speak up publicly for the Batley teacher forced out of his job and home by a Muslim mob?
It’s two months now that a 29-year-old “good Yorkshire lad “ told a class he was going to show them a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammad as part of a religious studies lesson. He said any pupil who felt that they might be upset by the cartoon could leave the class.

A pupil who stayed told her parents when she got home and a group of the parents from Muslim backgrounds than protested outside Batley Grammar.
The spineless head suspended the teacher, a father of four. For his and his family’s safety the teacher left their council flat and haven’t been back since. Its unclear if the children have been schooled since.

This is quite shocking. All the while the National education Union has kept shtum about the row saying that the inquiry into the showing of the cartoon should be allowed to finish before they give their view.
Why? I presume the union believes in free speech. I presume they want to protect their teacher from the mob? After all the union exercises its own free speech when they allow their union to support the people of Gaza.
Or is that the link? If you are Muslim you can have the NEU support but if you are not you and your family must go into hiding.
Very interested to see what NEU branches backed Israel in the war. After all Israel is a democracy and not run by Hamas, designated a terrorist outfit by the UK and the US. Or do our unions only every support terrorists? I think we should be told.
