CAIR cheers NY City Council passage of Resolution to Include Islamic Holidays in School Calendar.
New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NY) today joined a coalition of community organizations in welcoming the passage of a resolution by a committee of the city council that calls for adding Muslim holidays to the school calendar.
Resolution 1281, passed overwhelmingly by the New York City Council Education Committee, calls on the “New York City Department of Education to incorporate the Muslim holidays of Eid Ul-Fitr and Eid Ul-Adha as observed school holidays in the school calendar for the city school district of the city of New York” and also asks that the state legislature “pass, and the Governor to sign into law, A.8108/S.5837, an Act to amend the education law, in relation to requiring that Eid Ul-Fitr and Eid Ul-Adha be school holidays in the city school district of the city of New York.“PRNewswire
Even the liberal, illegal-immigrant loving Mayor Bloomberg objected to making Muslim Holidays official school holidays.
Empire State Building to go MUSLIM GREEN for Muslim holiday.
New York’s iconic Empire State Building is to be lit up green from Friday in honor of the Muslim holiday of Eid, the biggest festival in the Muslim calendar marking the end of Ramadan, officials said.
Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the fasting month, is expected to be celebrated in New York from Friday, depending on when the new moon is sighted, and the city’s tallest skyscraper will remain green until Sunday….
The problem with this is the unexamined assumption that Islam is exactly the same kind of thing as Judaism and Christianity, and must be welcomed into the United States with no examination of the ready-made societal alternative that it offers, and which some Muslims have made clear that they are determined ultimately not just to offer but to impose upon the West. In light of the dim view that some Muslims have of Western holidays, can we expect that in an Islamic New York, as some would like to see exist someday, the building will still be lit up for Christmas and Hanukkah?

Khalil Gibran School – A Jihad Grows in Brooklyn.
The story of the public school in Brooklyn that is poised to become a taxpayer-underwritten, Islamist recruitment and indoctrination center took a dramatic turn last week. The principal-designate of the so-called Khalil Gibran International Academy (KGIA), Dhabah “Debbie” Almontaser, was forced to resign after she defended a T-shirt emblazoned with the words “Intifada NYC” — making clear her radical ideology and proclivity for dissembling.

A jury found Shahawar Matin Siraj guilty in May of scheming to blow up the midtown Manhattan station, below a thriving shopping district that includes Macy’s department store and just a block from the Empire State Building.
“The crimes committed here had the potential, if not thwarted, to wreak havoc,” said U.S. District Judge Nina Gershon in Brooklyn. The prosecution case was strengthened by the testimony of a co-conspirator who pleaded guilty and an undercover police officer who said Siraj openly supported al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
