    Two Muslim Holy Days Will Become Official New York City School Holidays

    This is really hard to believe, isn't New York where a bunch of Muslims took down the twin towers? This is equal to allowing something like allowing Hitler having a parade in Israel.


    Two Muslim Holy Days Will Become Official New York City School Holidays

    No author noted

    Muslim students currently make up 13% of New York City’s public school population. That’s why both candidates in the New York Mayor’s race – Bill de Blasio, an extreme Leftist masquerading as a Democrat, and Joe Lhota, a Republican who currently doesn’t have a snowball’s chance of winning the race – have agreed that the Muslim holy days of Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha should be added as holidays to the calendar for New York City’s public schools.

    According to de Blasio, adding the holidays to the school calendar is a matter of “respect.” In a campaign rally with Muslim groups on Wednesday, he said, “The origins of this nation (are) people of many different faiths coming together. . . . That’s why we have to respect Muslim faiths by providing the Eid school holidays for children in our school system.”

    Lhota also threw in the word “respect.” Also on Wednesday, Lhota said, “We have a growing Muslim community in the city of New York and their religion needs to be respected as all other religions are respected. We’re not going to lose the school days. We’ll have to extend the school days by those two days. But nonetheless those who are Muslim will be allowed to have that day off to celebrate their holidays.”

    No big thing.....Muslims took down the twin towers. We have another one taking down the country. They may make it mandatory for all to have a copy of the Koran and a prayer rug before you know it. Things get more strange with each passing day.

    Yup, it does sound about right, and why not? It's been happening for decades and Christians do absolutely nothing in protest to put an end to it. The only comfort I get is knowing that these are all Signs of the End of the Age & This Last Generation. The greater the perplexity the closer the Rapture. Maranatha!

    Public school calendars shouldn't have any religious holidays. Instead, each child and employee should be allowed to take 4 or 5 "personal days" per year to accommodate personal beliefs whether it be superman's birthday or any other fantasy character's birthday.

    So, if Muslims are the only ones who will have those days off, Muslims shouldn't be allowed to take off on Christian holidays.

  8. For the record I am in agreement with the distain. But I would like to point out that the fight is with Islam not Muslim. Remember there are Christian Muslims being persecuted by the islamic heathens. Islam is evil and deserves nothing more than loathing and removal. A self confessed man or woman of islam is by definition a terrorist.

    You do realize that in this country, most schools do not have off for "Christmas" and "Easter". We have what is called Winter Break and Spring Break. This wording was done to appease those who aren't Christian and screamed that this is a violation of church and state. However, those who scream the loudest about rights being violated have never read the Constitution:
    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
    I don't see any wording in there that says "the separation of church and state", do you?
    However, if those that oppose having Christian holidays off because of a "violation of church and state", I'd love to see how they, atheists, agnostics, and Jews, are going to argue about these two Muslim holidays.

    Every teacher and every student is allowed to be excused for any religious holiday of which they are a member. Jews take off for Sukkot, which is about a week in October. Christians miss school for Ash Wednesday services. The reason we don't hear about the biggies (Christmas and Easter), Winter and Spring Breaks are incorporated around those times. But, shhhhhh, we can't call them Christmas and Easter breaks anymore. But in the name of Islam, we will have two Islamic holidays added to the school calendar.

    In addition, please see my post #9.
