German school tells pupils to dress modestly so as not to offend... asylum seekers

(Bavaria) In the town of Pockling, situated on the German/Austrian border, the authorities have decided to use the local school gym to house 200 Syrian asylum seekers. However, in order to accommodate them even further, the local authorities have sent out letters in which to inform parents of children at the school that in order not to offend these peaceful Muslims, they should ensure that their girls dress modestly.

The letter states:
"The Syrian citizens are mainly Muslims and speak Arabic. The refugees are marked by their own culture. Because our school is directly next to where they are staying, modest clothing should be adhered to, in order to avoid discrepancies. Revealing tops or blouses, short shorts or miniskirts could lead to misunderstandings."
Naturally, this hasn't gone down too well with the parents, but a local politician has defended it by saying:
"When Muslim teenage boys go to open air swimming pools, they are overwhelmed when they see girls in bikinis, these boys, who come from a culture where for women it is frowned upon to show naked skin, follow girls and bother them without realizing. Obviously this is concerning for us."
And to think that the EU is helping to ferry hundreds of thousands of people like this across the Mediterranean sea in which to dump them on the rest of us.
