In Wake of Muslim Demands, Maryland School District to Scrap Jewish, Christian Holidays

Montgomery County Public Schools have closed for the Jewish high holidays for at least four decades because of the significant number of students and teachers who are absent on those days. The Muslim population is not large enough to warrant making it a school holiday. But it’s not about that — it’s about imposing Islam on the public square. The school district is now considering dropping all religious holidays. What’s next? Christmas? The Muslims would love that. “Muslim students and parents are expected to demonstrate before the meeting, according to NBC.” They are protesting this, but these Muslim parents and their children don’t protest the Islamic State, Hamas, Boko Haram, honor killings, jihad violence, the Oklahoma beheading, Islamic Jew-hatred, the Islamic slaughter and ethnic cleansing of millions of Christians in the Middle East.

And Jews have been an integral apart of America since its founding.

The only Muslim holiday that American should be adding is September 11th. Most cities are far too diverse for schools to observe every holiday.

Why not add Hindu holidays?

This is but another device by which Islam is imposed on the public school. The Islamic curriculum in the public schools teaches the shahada, the five pillars and quran teachings. One whole month of Islam — but it  does not include the 1,400 years of jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural annihilations and enslavements.

As for scrapping the Jewish holidays, rest assured that the Jews will go quietly. They always do.

Maryland School District May Scrap Jewish Holidays Amid Muslim Push, BY JTA, November 12, 2014
Protests Call for Equal Treatment of Religious Days

The superintendent of a Maryland school district has recommended removing Jewish holidays from the school calendar.

Schools in Montgomery County would still close on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, according to Superintendent Joshua Starr’s recommendation.

The issue behind the recommendation is that the schools are closed for Jewish holidays and not Muslim holidays, NBC Washington reported.

This coming year, Yom Kippur and the Muslim holiday of Eid Al Adha fall on the same day.

Montgomery County Public Schools have closed for the Jewish high holidays for at least four decades because of the significant number of students and teachers who are absent on those days. The Muslim population is not large enough to warrant making it a school holiday.

The county Board of Education will vote Tuesday on whether to remove religious holidays from the school calendar.

Muslim students and parents are expected to demonstrate before the meeting, according to NBC.

    How about the school districts giving each student 3 or 4 religious holidays each school year. Then the Muslims can’t complain and the rest of us don’t have to be subjected to this aspect of their crap and complaining.
