NEW YORK — The nation’s largest public school system will observe the two most important Muslim holidays starting next fall, a policy change hailed Wednesday by Islamic leaders in New York City.
Under the new policy, the city’s 1.1 million-pupil public school system will close on Sept. 24 for Eid al-Adha, which is also known as the Festival of Sacrifice. The holiday of Eid al-Fitr, marking the end of Ramadan, will be observed during summer school in 2016.
“Hundreds of thousands of Muslim families will no longer have to choose between honoring the most sacred days on their calendar or attending school,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said in his announcement.
Muslim leaders welcomed the announcement.
How ironic, yet unsurprising, that this would happen in the same city where, according to official lies, Muslims killed 3,000 people on 9/11. This must be extremely outrageous to non-Muslims in the city who may or may not have lost friends or family during the Jew-led terrorist attacks. This is a prime example of multiculturalism at its finest, with Jews and cultural marxists alike patting themselves on the back for their contribution to the destruction of the indigenous culture of our nation, especially since our culture was primarily fostered by Europeans over the past centuries. They are even willing to Islamify our public schools, if it means stamping out any remnant of European and American culture.
Obviously, they are far from reaching this dystopian goal, but it’s bad enough that already roughly 1 out of 10 of the students are Muslims, many of which are likely Americanized but most of which who likely have parents and grandparents who harbor ill will towards our land, culture, heritage and race. And anyone else who is a non-Muslim or non-arab, for that matter.
