Jersey City Won’t Close School For Islamic Holiday


Even though Muslims only make up about 1 percent of the U.S. population, that hasn’t stopped them from demanding to be treated as if they were a majority.

In another move to lengthen the tentacles of Shariah law, Muslims in Jersey City, New Jersey demanded that public schools be closed on Sep. 24 to celebrate the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha.

While many politically correct school boards would have bowed to their demands without a second thought, Jersey City Schools Superintendent Marcia Lyles and the school board decided that shutting down the school, given that they only received six days’ notice for the request, would be too disruptive, as it would force the majority of non-Muslim parents to find accommodations for their children on short notice.

The Muslim petitioners who demanded that the schools comply presented a frightening reason at a recent school board meeting as to why their demands should be met.

“We’re no longer the minority. That’s clear from tonight,” one burqa-clad Muslim parent said while smirking. “We’re gonna be the majority soon.”

Had the school board buckled, which seems to be the norm when Muslims make such demands, the school year would have been extended another day, according to NJ.com.

On top of that, several Jewish parents expressed their anger that it would leave their children out, because they don’t get off school for established Jewish holidays like Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

That didn’t stop Muslim parents of students in the district from expressing their Islamic grief.

“We feel alienated from the Board of Education, we feel alienated from this system,” Omar Abouelkhair said.

Even the chief of staff for the Lyon’s school district expressed her hesitance at not complying with the demands of those who practice the so-called “religion of peace.”
“It was a very difficult and gut-wrenching decision, I think, for all of our board members,” said Maryann Dickar, the district’s chief of staff.

Still, credit should be given to the members of the board for not giving in, which reminded Muslims that not everyone is willing to submit to their thinly veiled threats and intimidation tactics.

    Good for them!!! Why should we bow down to their wishes and demands???!! We don’t have holidays for Jews, or other nationalities here in America so why for them?? If they want to celebrate their holiday go home to their own country. I am sure they don’t celebrate any of our holidays or traditions in their country.

    Like spoiled children, give them an inch and they come back more and more. Gotta say no. They can take the day off. Why must everyone acknowledge their holiday? It’s on them. Where are those Satanist running around promoting satanistism? Don’t they want in on this? Satanists are better than muslims because they don’t blow is up and call us names when they don’t get their way.

    Here’s how I feel. When you are a guest of someone’s house, you abide by their rules. If you choose to stay in their home, you either convert to their rules or respect them. In Anerica, all are welcome, but don’t change the foundation of America, who we are and what we stand for. If our home is not a comfortable place for you, then return to the home in which you came from. I would not visit another’s home and ask them to change the rules for me. If it’s not a comfortable place… Stay in your own comfort zone. As you may be offended by what we don’t follow, we may be offended that you insist we change our way of life to suit yours. It’s all about respect and honor when you visit, come to or join another’s family home.
