Muslims Campaigning to Force Maryland Schools to Close on Islamic Holidays
-By Warner Todd Huston
Muslims in the Montgomery County schools in Rockville, Maryland are campaigning for public schools to take Islamic holidays off along with Christian and Jewish holidays. So, this week, the terror-tied Muslim group CAIR sponsored a rally to help push the issue.
High school senior Anhar Karim is one complaining about having to choose between school and his Muslim holiday.
“We are forcing our students into an unreasonable decision,” he said.
At the rally held outside the Rockville Montgomery County Council Office Building, Muslims said they want Montgomery County Public Schools to close annually for two Islamic religious holidays, Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha.
The CAIR-sponsored local coalition formed a year ago to push the Islamic holiday issue and claim they don’t want special rights. “We’re only asking for equal rights,” said Zainab Chaudry, vice president of CAIR’s Maryland chapter and a co-chair of the coalition.
Montgomery County Democrat Councilman George Leventhal was also on hand to speak as a western dupe in favor of the Muslims.
The school system already recognizes the Muslim holidays, though, and enforces a “non-testing” day during them so that Muslim children would not be forced to miss important testing.
What do you think? No big deal to give the Muslims a holiday, especially if there is a growing number of them in the schools? Or always a big mistake to allow the camel’s nose under the tent?
Next stop full Shariah law breaking down out system?
