Britain's Ofsted would be more convincing if they were as concerned with Muslim madrassas as they are with Haredi yeshivas

A writer at Commentary (via Mosaic) told how the British Ofsted apparently wants to force an ultra-Orthodox girls' school in Stamford Hill to teach homosexuality, and no doubt, why they think it's entirely valid practice.
Yesodey Hatorah was also deemed [lacking] by the standards of British secular progressivism and the sexual revolution. The curriculum de-emphasized global warming. Students didn’t learn much by way of sex education and especially about homosexuality, which, according to an earlier report, deprived them of “a full understanding of fundamental British values” and limited their “spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development and [did] not promote equality of opportunity in ways that take account of differing lifestyles.” Finally, Ofsted rapped the school’s knuckles for failing to expose the girls to [members of] the opposite sex.
I'd noted before that the school did commit some wrongs by censoring and mutilating textbooks, which only compounds the notion they have no confidence in their ability to teach why homosexuality is wrong. Mainly because the way they uphold gender segregation practically influences homosexuality, and I'm sure some of the overlords in Haredi society know it, and don't care a lick. But what really botches Ofsted's complaints is that they won't even take the same hard stances with Muslim madrassas. Although, interestingly enough, the article also says:
The attack on Yesodey Hatorah is part of a larger campaign against religious education in the UK. Faithful Jews, Catholics, and Muslims are all targets. . . . The senior government adviser Louise Casey [told] the House of Commons: “It is not OK for Catholic schools to be . . . anti-gay marriage. I have a problem with the expression of religious conservatism because I think often it can be anti-equalities.” If and when totalitarianism arrives in the West, it will carry the grammatically appalling banner of “equalities.”
Regarding the Muslim schools, is that for real? Because maybe it isn't, though I will note that, if Commentary's not making a distinction, that's very unfortunate. There's a difference between good and bad, even with religion. So I suggest they get some brains when dealing with these subjects.

I think it's regrettable the UK considers homosexuality acceptable and a role model. But that's no excuse for failing to make distinctions between specific religions.

Update: since we're on the subject, a Swiss haredi school is going to close because of their own censorship scandal:
Education Ministry inspectors found teachers and school officials heavily censoring books and pictures, deleting references to reproduction and child protection helpline contact details.

A Jewish school in Zurich will be shut down at the close of the summer because of its failure to meet the Swiss state’s pedagogical requirements, an Education Ministry official said.

Inspections of the haredi Orthodox Yeshiwe Ketane found insufficient attention was being paid to mathematics, French and English. [...]

The Swiss school, which has approximately 600 students, came under increasing scrutiny after 2005 following the adoption of stricter criteria by the government. A new supervisory body over private schools found that teachers for the nonreligious subjects lacked necessary qualifications. Amid talks with authorities over the issue, principal Josef Goldenberg told Education Ministry officials that his school will shut down.

“Yeshiveh Ketane is the only Jewish school that has not yet implemented the requirements of the National Board of Education,” Marion Volger, head of the Public Education Office at the Zurich canton, told Tachles. She said that “according to the principal’s message, he will no longer continue school operations from the summer of 2018.”
If this is correct, they were wrong to omit topics like child help services, along with subjects like French/English, and so they have only themselves to blame for leading to the closure of the school. I just hope the Swiss government views Islamists the same way.

Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

“The difference between Israel and Hamas [an
Islamic terrorist organization] is that Israel
uses its soldiers to protect its civilians,
whereas Hamas uses its civilians to protect
its terrorists. That is why most of Israeli
casualties have been soldiers and most of
Hamas' casualties have been civilians.

The other reason is that Israel builds
shelters for its civilians, whereas Hamas
builds shelters only for its terrorists,
intending that most of the casualties
be among its civilian shields.”

Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

The most recent Hamas provocations — having 40,000
Gazans try to tear down the border fence and enter
Israel with Molotov cocktails and other improvised
weapons — are part of a repeated Hamas tactic that
I have called the “dead baby strategy.”

Hamas’ goal is to have Israel kill as many Gazans
as possible so that the headlines always begin,
and often end, with the body count.

“In life as in law there are statutes of limitations
that recognize that history changes the status quo.

The time has come — indeed it is long overdue — for
the world to stop treating these Palestinians [from
year 1948] as refugees. That status ended decades ago.”

The Grand Mufti [Islamic leader] of Jerusalem,
in addition to becoming Hitler’s ally during
World War II, adapted Nazi genocidal theory to
Islamic theology.

He called on his Muslim brothers to:
“Murder the Jews! Murder them all.”

Other Islamic leaders used Nazi words like
“extermination” in referring to the goals
of Arab victory [against Israel].
