School Board Removes Names of Holidays to Appease Muslims; Muslims Still Angry (Predictably)

By Debbie Schlussel

You’ve heard of “marriage equality.” Now meet the “Eid equality” movement. It’s a nice name for the extremism that pervades Islam in America (and everywhere else) and demands that America roll back everything and all freedoms in the name of appeasing Islam. Equality ain’t got nothin’ to do with it. They want special treatment and rights above everyone else.


Muslims demanded that the suburban Washington, DC-area Montgomery County (Maryland) give “equality” to Muslim holidays by closing on those days, even though there are not that many Muslim kids in the school district and the few absences don’t justify it. So, the school district–to appease Muslims–got rid of the names of all the Christian holidays on the calendar to avoid offending Muslims.

Montgomery County Public Schools will remove religious labels from school holidays, but members of the Islamic community say the adjustments to the school calendar do nothing to gain parity and a day off for the Muslim holiday of Eid. The school board approved the school calendar for the 2015-2016 school year Tuesday. The calendar will no longer reference specific religious holidays but rather state simply that school will be closed on dates that correspond with holidays, such as Eid, Yom Kippur and Christmas. Saqib Ali, a former Maryland state delegate and co-chair of Equality for Eid, was not happy with the board of education’s action Tuesday.

“Equality is really what we’re looking for,” Ali said. “Simply saying we’re not going to call this Christmas, and we’re not going to call this Yom Kippur, and still closing the schools, that’s not equality.” School board members said they were sympathetic to the desire to have Eid recognized and close schools but that legal precedent in Maryland bars them from closing for religious purposes. “We can’t close for religious holidays. We can only close for operational purposes,” like high absenteeism, school spokesman Dana Tofig said.

And of course, HAMAS gets in on it with its U.S. co-conspirator:

That explanation doesn’t sit well with Zainab Chaudry, with the Council on American Islamic Relations. “What’s really concerning to us is that similar conditions weren’t placed on any other faith community,” Chaudry says.

School board member Michael Durso has been butt-snorkeling HAMAS, too:

Noting the attempt to move away from favoring religions by instead referring to school days off as “winter break” and “student holidays,” Durso said as long as the Islamic community’s concern for parity wasn’t somehow addressed “it comes off as insensitive, and I just think we cannot afford to be in that light”.

Muslim parents say their children get a clear message from the Montgomery County school system that they are second-class citizens. That’s how Abdul Shaikh sees it. He has two kids in Montgomery County Schools and said it’s painful to explain to his American-born kids that public schools choose a holiday policy that gives off for Christmas and Yom Kippur, but not Eid. “How am I supposed to explain it to them?” Shaikh said.

By telling them that they’re not special. By telling them that they are an intolerant minority and that the whole world doesn’t have to bow to their every whine. That’s how.

In Dearbornistan and Dearbornistan Heights, Muslim extremists (redundant) are the majority of the school district, so they argued that school should be closed because few students would be in school. Now, they want school to close even where they are a tiny minority. Because everyone has to bow to them, no matter what. That’s the imperiousness of Islam and Muslims. Always has been, always will be.

Today, suburban DC. Tomorrow, your neck o’ the woods. Islam is taking over and taking names because you and I don’t have anyone in office–Democrat OR Republican–who will do a thing to protect this country from the invasion.

Now, it’s too late. The cancer has spread, metastasized, and at work amputating limbs. Only a few generations until rigor mortis for America sets in.

Of course muslims wont be satisfied until they are in authority and dominat. That’s the goal. Its the same goal as the democratic party. They seek total dominance. Its only the majority of americans with blinders on that think appeasment will help and as long as they give up more and more it will somehow make the muslims and democratics like them and let them be.

Appease Muslims? Forget about it. That is, unless you present yourself before them…head in hand.

When I lived in a highly Jewish area of the Chicago suburbs, we were able to take off for Yom Kippur. When I was an undergraduate in Fort Worth, Texas, we could not.

Generally speaking, Holidays follow the dominant culture.

Let’s keep on playing the Dhimmi, America.

Muzzies are getting entirely too much power. Too much. This country was not founded on Islamic principles.Wth is going on in America?

It’s as if because muzzies pulled off 911, they are punking America. Just pushing and shoving their way through and we let it. America doesn’t even try to stand up against them, just rollover. Sad.

My kids public elementary school in DC area had a painting of a mosque in the main hallway. The principal painted it with the 6th grade class as an end of the year project.
I’ve lived in the DC area for many years and over the last decade have seen the muslim population skyrocket.

I wish some Satanist or Pastafarian came out and demanded days off just to show the ridiculousness of these muslim demands.

How about all of the Hindus, Buddhists, Bhai Faith, etc.? They all have holidays too. We have to draw the line somewhere. If people want to take off from school for a religious holiday or just for a family vacation they always have that choice.

But you have to understand that the Muslims are special. They are the highest creation of Allah. They are deserving of the best this world that Allah has created. All you see is for the Muslim. The riches of this world belong rightly to the Muslim. The schools are for the Muslims. The government is for the Muslims.
That is what they are taught. That is what the Koran teaches. So why are we shocked when they act out on their beliefs?

“Islam is not a religion; it is a social, political system that uses a deity to advance its agenda of global conquest” John Bennett

“Most people think Islam is a religion, it’s not. It’s a totalitarian way of life with a religious component,” he said. “But it’s much larger. It’s a geo-political system that has governmental, financial, military, legal and religious components. And it’s a totalitarian system that encompasses every aspect of life and it should not be protected [under U.S. law].” – Jody Hice

“This is not a tolerant, peaceful religion even though some Muslims are peaceful. Radical Muslims believe that Sharia is required by God and must be imposed worldwide,” he said. “It’s a movement to take over the world by force. A global caliphate is the objective. That’s why Islam would not qualify for First Amendment protection since it’s a geopolitical system … This is a huge thing to realize and I hope you do. This will impact our lives if we don’t get a handle on it.” – ibid

So, it makes perfect sense that a virulent knucklehead like Rebecca Smondrowski is not intellectually capable of discerning the difference between a global march toward an all encompassing, endlessly violent Caliphate and a Christian holiday on our calendar.

No Eid? Expect IED.

DS_ROCKS on November 13, 2014 at 11:19 am

    I catch where you are going with this, but it is more—celebrate EID, GET IED. Only by smashing back will we stop the spread of Sharia.

As a basic graduate of the Montgomery County Public School System (’75-’88), and off and on duty stations in/around the “beltway (mid-’90’s-2003),” I am perplexed by this purging of “religious holidays.” From Kindergarten at Highland View onto Good Counsel and Rockville High School, I/we were exposed to numerous ethnicities, religions, languages, and political views. Hell, as a Catholic kid, I/we were taught even how to play “Dreidel” (spelling?) while IN school. Christians celebrated their days, Jews their’s, Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus et al did the same. Not “your” day on the calendar? Write a note; Voila, excused. Even the punk shows at “Hung Jury,” “9:30,” “The Bayou,” and other unremarkable venues had a “melting pot” vibe. It was great to “grow-up” in the D.C. area! Then, in my opinion, it rapidly changed, as if a switch was thrown.
Dare I say, it was about a month after September 11, 2001. The Hijabs and distoshcias came out of the woodwork. Working in a Contingency Planning office, we compiled a global terrorism “Fact Book” derived from open sourced CIA stats, geo-political white papers etc. A Commander (O-5) came in, grabbed it and said, “This is completely inappropriate.” wtf over? Shortly thereafter, the “diversity” crowd began sounding off; “…we are the world…” “…they are great, we [[you] suck…” etc. Even the “brothers” who recently “converted” began to act more in the way of the Nation of Islam vice their pre-911 “peace and unity” mantra. Then a Mosque aboard MCCDC Quantico? …really?
What happened in MCPS?
Diminutive feminine “leadership” [Neo-Communist] thought global and acted local, removing ANY god and inserted the State. Political Submission via the Greater Jihad; erasing any reference to the “Saturday and Sunday people.” Didn’t someone say religion is the opiate of the masses? Islam is a Trojan Horse, and the dhemmis are sleeping off their drunken stupor. Melting pot to Chamber pot in under 20 years. …whew, glad to see that the Republicrats will save the day. Dar al BullShiite.

“If they should once obtain a connivance, they will press for a toleration, from thence to an equality, from an equality to a superiority, from a superiority to an extirpation of all contrary religions.” – John Pym 1584-1643.

I am a Hindu. On Hindu religious days in the US, I neither get nor expect any holiday. Nor do other Hindus. On the nearest weekend, we celebrate it at the nearest temples, or spots rented for the occasion. That’s where it starts… and ends.

Of course, how could that possibly work for Muzzies?

Infidel on November 13, 2014 at 5:41 pm

policies of appeasement never work because they always will take and take. We should be standing up for the right to act like christians in a christian country.

chuck on November 14, 2014 at 5:05 am

Oh, that it were only one group that the various school boards favor (obviously not ours). It seems, to me, that they are trying to reconstruct the Tower of Babel.

But Christian businesses must serve gays?

Panhandle on November 14, 2014 at 2:03 pm

I grow tired of this. Taught an absolutely bright, gorgeous Muslima who was defending polygamy. Sigh.

An evil philosophy that subjugates women and that Liberals adore. In the meantime, on the Harvard campus, Liberal women are demanding that men have them sign contracts for sexual intercourse before commencing (unless, of course, they are Muslim, I suppose, since Islam trumps all).

Occam's Tool on November 20, 2014 at 12:22 am

This is sickening. I’m so tired of the ball-less pandering that goes on. It just gives these parasites more and more of a foot hold into this country. My advice to them is, this is America. If there is something you don’t like about it, no matter how small, please go back to your third world shit hole.
