The New York City Council June 30 called on Mayor Bloomberg to add Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha to the New York Public School calendar. The non-binding council vote, Resolution 1281, passed with only councilmember G. Oliver Koppel opposing, urges the schools be closed to celebrate the two Islamic feast days. The vote comes as the culmination of a three-years lobbying effort by New York Islamist groups and what supporters such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations describe as “over 80 Labor and Community Organizations.”

……This is not the only example of Islamists convincing local authorities to celebrate Islam on September 11. Earlier this year the Hawaii State Legislature voted to celebrate “Islam Day” on September 24, 2009—a day which corresponds to absolutely nothing in the Islamic calendar but is September 11, 2009 on the old Julian calendar favored by the Eastern Orthodox Christians conquered by Islam.
New York is not alone. …..Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha “have already been adopted by school districts including Dearborn, Mich., and several municipalities in New Jersey.” According to the text of Resolution 1281 these include: “Irvington, Atlantic City, Trenton and Paterson.”
……It was unclear on Tuesday whether Mr. Bloomberg would continue to have final say on the issue, because the State Legislature still has not passed a bill to extend his control over the schools. But some officials said that even if the bill did not pass, he would be able to exert indirect control through appointments to the Board of Education.
The Council resolution also urged the Legislature to pass two pending bills that would amend state education law to require the holidays in the city’s school calendar. That could allow the move without the mayor’s approval, said Councilman Robert Jackson of Manhattan, a co-sponsor of the resolution and a Muslim.
Public Islamist reaction to the council resolution is muted–the holidays are not yet law. But Islamists—including the webmaster of the Hawaii “Islamic Information Office” (IIO) website are on line celebrating the Hawaii Legislature’s vote to designate September 24 as “Islam Day.”
“City of Brass” blogger Aziz Poonawalla of Madison, Wisconsin May 19 writes: “Naturally, there are some (conservative, Republican) people who see this as dhimmitude incarnate. This fellow for example warns starkly of burkas and bikinis (maybe he should read my essay…) and intones seriously, “the muslims are laughing”. Why, yes, we are indeed.”
The first commenter on Poonawalla’s blog post identifies himself as Hawaii IIO webmaster Abdul Rashid Abdullah. The Islamic Information Office (IIO) website is tied to the Hawaii-based Muslim initiators of the “Islam Day” resolution. Abdullah provides a link to a Honolulu Star-Bulletin poll on Islam Day and urges Poonawalla’s readers to vote.
The next morning “Indira” comments: “Nice work, that is also September 11 on the Julian calendar, no wonder you are laughing at kufr.” (Kufr is a derogatory term for non-Muslims.)
That’s nothing compared to the laugh the Islamists will have if they can get “kufr” to celebrate Islamic feast days on September 11 in New York City.
I fired this e-mail off to the Mayor:
I’m a retired U.S. Soldier and Iraq War veteran. I fought the enemies who attacked this soil on 9/11 only to find that you and the NYC Council think it’s appropriate to honor muslim holidays. Islamofascist groups like CAIR sponsored this, and you see nothing wrong with that.
CAIR Chairman Omar M. Ahmad told a crowd of California Muslims in July 1998:
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.”
Congratulations on becoming a Dhimmi. Don’t expect the rest of us to follow suit.
What’s the matter, Mayor? Apparently, there’s not enough buildings missing from your skyline to make an impression.
The Dhimmification of America is just as much of a threat as communism ever was, or the new socialist regime in the White House, for that matter.
I refuse to honor or respect any religion that is a threat to my life and liberty. I will not tolerate a religion that infuses terrorism, violence against its female population, and fatwas against Christians and Jews simply because they don’t buy what Mohammad wrote in a 7th Century screed.
Traits of Islam are found in the Sirat Rasul Allah. Destitute muslims would accept aid, protection, and comfort, from communities only to inflict Sharia when they became strong enough to impose their rule. The author, Ibn Ishaq (Died 773AD) gave an unvarnished view of the tyrant Mohammad, and his original text ‘disappeared’.
Mohammad was a butcher, a “highway bandit” who made a living robbing passing caravans, a pedophile, and a mass murderer, anti-Christian and an anti-Semite. What a prophet. It’s inconceivable that any city in America would consider granting a holiday to a diseased theology and its malignant followers.
If they expect to transform this nation into a Dhimmi satellite, they’re going to have one hell of a fight on their bloody hands.

The demand for state funded Muslim school is in accordance with the law of the land. Muslim community is not asking for any favour. There are only ten state funded Muslim schools and the British Establishment are ready to fund all Muslim schools. Only less than five percent of Muslim children attend Muslim schools and at the same time, there are hundreds of state and church schools where Muslim children are in majority. In my opinion, all such schools may be designated as Muslim community schools.
Bilingual Muslim children need bilingual Muslim teachers as role models during their developmental periods. At higher levels, there is no need for a Muslim teacher.
The medium of instruction in a Muslim school is English and all of them follow the National curriculum. Muslim children need to learn and be well versed in standard English to follow the National Curriculum and go for higher studies and research to serve humanity. At the same time Muslim children need to learn and be well versed in Arabic language for their spiritual and religious development. Muslim children need to learn and be well versed in Urdu and other community languages to keep in touch with their cultural roots and enjoy the beauty of their literature and poetry.
Bilingual Muslim children in British schooling has led to a predictable response from the tabloids, which present these children as a problem for “others” children and teachers.This is both racist and wrong. British society must recognise that over 50% of the world now routinely use more than one language in their daily lives and some 85% are able to function at least two. In a global economy these “problem” children are infact, the norm, and in a global sense they are potentially an asset, not a drain. British society should be thankful that the highest achieving students are bilinguals.
This particular post discusses the willingness of the New York City School system to kiss the ass of muslim extremists. It’s not a post about what’s going on in Britain, which is where you reside. If you understood English as well as you think, you’d have gathered that by simply reading the post in its entirety. You may be “bi-lingual”, but your cognitive skills in English are lacking.
Having said that, I’ll address your comment anyway:
Who’s “law”? Traditional British or the Sharia Law you’ve managed to impose on Europe, with their scatterbrained compliance? Don’t look for that to happen here in the United States without a fight. Patriotic Americans refuse to succumb to Dhimmification. Your idea of “serving humanity” is to impose (READ: FORCE) your brutal theocracy on Judeo-Christian nations. I’m American born and raised, but I also speak German. My first language is English, the language of my country.
How about contributing to your adopted country by doing everything you can to assimilate? But we all know that’s not your intent, is it Hadji?
