Happy Eid Al-Adha: Muslim Holiday Is Occasion for Anti-Semitic Hate Crime; Costs School District

By Debbie Schlussel
Today is the second day of the Eid Al-Adha, the Islamic holiday marking the several day “Feast of Sacrifice.”
Looks like the sacrifices are tax money for a Muslim-heavy school district in Michigan and the safety of a Jewish teacher, there.
Since Muslims can’t really predict the start of their holidays accurately (they depend on news from our “friends” the Saudis to declare the actual start date), the Dearborn, Michigan school district will lose out on $100,000 for calculating the wrong days to give off for the Eid (Feast).
Said Eide Alawan of Dearborn, a prominent Muslim spokesman in Michigan, and member of the extremist, anti-Semitic, pro-Hezbollah Islamic Center of America mosque: “We live in a western culture. People feel, ‘Well, Christmas is on the 25th every year.’ We don’t do that.”
We’re not so worried about that as we are news about the latest “celebration” of the Muslim holiday in the same Dearborn school district: In honor of the holiday, yesterday, a swastika and anti-Semitic epithets were spray-painted inside Dearborn’s Bryant MIddle School, where a teacher who is Jewish dares to teach. According to the Detroit Free Press, “a Nazi symbol was scrawled along with derogatory remarks direct at the school and a teacher who is Jewish.”
The Free Press article pointedly fails to mention the Muslim dominance in the Dearborn school district or that the vandalism took place on the first day of Eid Al-Adha. Maybe that has something to do with the fact that the “reporter”, Niraj Warikoo, is Muslim and the Free Press’ resident PR agent for Dearborn’s extremist Muslims and their terror supporting ways.
In other Eid Al-Adha news, we note that, in the final rite of the Muslim Hajj, Monday’s ascent to Mount Arafat, Sheik Abdul-Aziz Al-Sheik delivered a very interesting sermon at the mosque atop the mount. He attacked opposition to terrorism, decried calls for revisions in racist, anti-Christian, anti-Semitic, anti-American, pro-martyrdom school textbooks, and denounced calls for an end to Islamic human rights abuses. “The soldiers of Allah will be victorious” against “Islam’s enemies.” Gee, just what does he mean by that?
We note that Al-Sheik is the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s grand mufti (top cleric), appointed by and serving at the pleasure of the Saudi Royal Family–you know, our “allies in the War on Terror.” Right.

They need to continue the tradition by holy role models they’re proud of,like the Mufti of Jerusalem who hung out with Hitler in Berlin during WWII.

What I really am concerned about is how much hate crime, and hate speech, Muslims can get away with and not be called out for. Not all Muslims are filled with hate and visciousness, but many groups of the religion are. I feel all races, religions, groups, should be held to the same standard, yet for some reason we tolerate hate crimes by Muslims becasue we feel its part of their cutlure. Let an elightened individual tell you, there is no magic to Islam, it is a religion the same as any religion, these acts should be called out just like a neo-nazi, skin0-head, black-panther, or KKK group would be.

I’m a Jewish kid from the east. I spent my summer in Ann Arbor. Almost daily, there were protest marches from both sides about the war in lebanon. often these protestes took on anti-semitic tones that sickened me.
one of the high points of my summer was visiting the islamic center of america. showing myself and a group of other students around for the day was a syrian man named Eide Alawan. he emphasized that the mosque is a place of God where all faiths should be welcome.
i was skeptical to his peaceful words. i pressed him with hard questions. if jews and muslims were essentaily the same faith, as he claimed, why was there the anti-semitism that i had witnessed first hand in ann arbor? why were jews and muslims fighting in Lebanon? why did muslims seemingly hate jews?
Eide Alawan answered every question thoughtfully. he described his interfaith work, bringing together the christian, jews, and muslims of the detriot community to discuss these same questions. he told me that muslims and jews were coming together everrywhere to try and fight the type of thoughtless hate that has defined the two religions relationship over the past 50 years.
i walked away from that mosque optimistic. i had not only better understanding for islam, but a more full understanding of my own faith.
a few monthes later, i try to find the sage like syrain who had brought some much needed light to my summer. i google his name, and what do i find, but a blog linking Eide Alawan and exetremist anti-semitism. im sickened in way that i haven’t been since i heard anti-semitic chants in the streets of ann arbor.
these lies and misconception pretending to be some type of journalism discuss me. this article links anti-semitic vandalism to the religion of islam, because the act of vandalism occured on a muslim holy day.
i ask ms. schlussel to drastically revise this post, or preferably, to take it down all together.

I am a young educated muslim male. I grew up in the US so I know first hand what living in american means. I don’t think it is OK for anyone to hate and incite racial or ethnic slurs on anyone. But let me tell you that Islam and Judaism are religions and not people. That means some people can be muslims or jews and not represent the religion at all. That being said, You called out muslims chanting anti-semetics. But when was the last time you heard Isreali’s say anything good about muslims or palestinians. It is NOT ok to wage a war on palestinians and occupy their land and say that god promised us this land. I don’t agree with that one bit. If god did promise the Jews of mose’s time that does not mean it was passed on to todays jewery.I am a human being with free thought and I can tell you I will never accept to being second or third class to jews just because they say they are chosen and are better than all other humans. Judaism does not stand for that but the jews want to manipulate their text to mean that palestine is theirs as promised by god. Islam the last message from god came to clarify that and tell all of humanity that they are all equals in the eyes of god. Islam says that there are no chosen people. I agree with this religion more than a religion that says I am second, third class because my DNA did not come from the lineage of ISAIC the son of Abraham. Islam means peace and the message in the quran does not incite violence, but maybe you may meet some so called muslims that preach hatred. That is not of Islam. I can easily challenge the author of this article to be impartial and objective and she will see that when you look into Islam you will see it advocates dealing kindly with everyhuman regardless of race or religion. thanks you for reading and I love all humans as brothers and sister. I love you all.
