    Post Norway: Teacher Told to Drop Star of David

    A bit of older news (2005) but i want to know what your opinions are about this because of the Jewish world and their involvement in the mass-immigration laws, is muslim-immigration backfiring on Jews ? and what about the white multiculturalists, they ban one religion over the other ? world gone mad.

    Norway: Teacher told to drop Star of David

    Because it might offend Muslims, of course. Interesting to note that Aftenposten lists as a "related story" one with the headline "No plans to ban hijab in Norwegian schools." Apparently the hijab offends no one. From Aftenposten, with thanks to all who sent this in:

    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, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) reports.
    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.

    "The Star of David would be a symbol for one side in what is perhaps the world's most inflamed conflict at the moment. Many have a traumatic past that they have escaped and then we feel that if they are going to learn Norwegian then they can't sit an at the same time be reminded of the things they have traveled from," Gislefoss said.

    Telhaug has hired a lawyer and refuses to give in.


    Good for you, Telhaug.

    Regardless of whether or not the symbol is Jewish, the man is not. A Norwegian who wears a foreign symbol is a Norwegian regardless, and so should not need to change it to accommodate foreigners.

    I think if the issue was between him and Norwegian students, then there would actually be a case.
