Maryland: Islamists Demand Schools Close For Islamic Holidays In Montgomery County

I guess they’re not happy enough with the 15-acre mega mosque being built in small-town Maryland or the fact that many schools all across America are already praising the “virtues” of Islam. The Muslim Brotherhood’s CAIR and their supporters are now demanding more actions that speak louder than words, and with their good friend Barack Hussein Obama paving the way for Sharia law in America, this is bound to happen sooner rather than later …

The "Green Horse" Marches

The “Green Horse” Marches

WND – “Muslims in Montgomery County, Md., are petitioning local school officials to add two Islamic holidays that vary from year to year to the school calendar, and if needed, to shorten the ‘winter break’ to make up for the days off.

‘There is no need for any MCPS students to miss classroom instruction time if schools were to close for Eid holidays,’ their petition argues. ‘There is a state law that mandates at least 180 classroom instruction days per year. That won’t change. If schools were to close on Eid holidays the missed days could easily be made up by slightly shortening the lengthy winter or summer breaks.

‘Alternatively any of the many pre-existing school closings could be moved to coincide with Eid holidays,’ the petition argues.

The Muslims want schools to close on Islamic holidays because they observe the Christian holidays of Easter and Christmas, and the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah. The dates of Muslim holidays vary because they are based on the Islamic calendar.

The Muslims argue that the county schools already close on ‘Christmas, Good Friday, Easter Monday, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Passover.’

The school calendar, however, notes that Yom Kippur is on a Saturday, and Passover is not mentioned.

Nevertheless, they want recognition of Eid al-Fitr, to mark the end of Ramadan, and Eid al-Adha, marking a pilgrimage to Mecca.

‘Currently the thousands of Muslim MCPS staff and students have to choose between their education and observing their religious practices,’ the coalition argues. ‘This is not a choice that our Christian and Jewish neighbors face on their holidays.’

According to a report in the local Gazette, the sponsor of the move is the Maryland chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR.

The Muslim coalition said other school districts that acknowledge their holidays include Burlington, Vt.; Cambridge, Mass.; Dearborn, Mich.; Skokie, Ill.; and Paterson and Trenton, N.J.” Read more.

    Why don’t we tell them NO. They can pack up & go to a muslim country so they have all that they need. What happened to the separation of church and state? I guess that is only for Christians? Lock your doors and prepare to protect yourself. They will be coming to your state soon. We will not be able to recognize America. She will be something written about in the history books and our grandchildren will be amazed of the stories told about her. The days when “real freedom” rang.

      Donna .. ” She will be something written about in the history books and our grandchildren will be amazed of the stories told about her ” Let me tell you their won’t be any history books once muslims take over. Tell how many people know that Afghanistan was once predominantly Buddhist, before the coming of barbarian muslims and to-day NOT a single Buddhist live there.
      By the way you grandchildren will be converted to Islam or die ” You Americans better wake up, before its too late .

      Donna . Please read a book by Bat Ye’or ” The Decline Of Eastern Christianity Under Islam ” and a Book by V.S. Naipaul ” Beyond Belief ” Tell you how muslims went as traders to the Far East and took it over that part of the world over centuries. It was also predominantly Buddhist . I feel muslims have time on their hands and will play sturdily and surely to convert USA into Islamic state over the century or so. see http://www.thereligionofpeace.com http://www.compassdirect.org

    These vicious wolves in sheeps’ clothing will not stop with this! Their clear mandate from their false prophet is to subjugate and enslave everything and everybody in the name of their allah-god! Easter, Christmas, Yom Kippur and Passover are celebrations that commemorate the true acts of the TRUE AND LIVING GOD! Islamic holidays are nothing but contrived falsehoods commemorating the works of satan who is a master deceiver!!!!

      Choose allah–choose bloody jihad, enslavement, constant mistrust of your fellow muslim ‘friends’ and you can only be sure of “paradise” (which is actually a literal burning HELL) if you shed your blood for the “cause”!

      Choose Christ–choose forgiveness of your vilest sins, a life on earth with friends who really care and everlasting life in Glory in the presence of the King of Kings!

      Muslims–damned fools, all of them!!!!! LITERALLY!!!!!

      Pray tell, why, oh why, would any American ever convert to islam????
