when hope and history rhyme from the cure at troy trans seamus heaney
When Hope and History Rhyme : from the Cure at Troy-trans. Seamus Heaney

‘History says, Don't hopeon this side of the grave.But then, once in a lifetimethe longed for tidal waveof justice can rise up,and hope and history rhyme.

So hope for a great sea-changeon the far side of revenge.Believe that a further shoreis reachable from here.’

  • Emphasise the link between the citizenship National Curriculum programmes of study and Islam
  • Help young people navigate some of the more difficult issues that they might face as British Muslims in the UK

Rights your rights to live and worship in the country freely, give your views on political issues, take part in democratic elections. The rights of others to the same freedoms that you enjoy. Government rights over you, for example in making sure you obey the law and pay your taxes.

Responsibilities: your responsibilities towards each other, caring for other people, not interfering with the rights of others, obeying the law, and going to school. Government responsibilities like spending your taxes in an appropriate way on such things as health, schools and security. Protecting your rights as a citizen like ensuring you can live, speak freely and worship peacefully.

The dogma of western democracy: where did it all come from?
  • Syria-Mesopotamia-
  • Mecca-’its inclusion within the history of democracy seems preposterous, but to ignore the supporting evidence is to pander to the prejudice that democracy is purely a western-ultimately Greek-invention.’
