The mainstream media is always trying to make it look like Muslims are “peaceful” people who just want to assimilate into Western culture. Stories like this, however, make it clear that many of them have no interest in assimilation and will instead never be satisfied until the U.S. has submitted to Shariah law.
Conservative Tribune reported that in an attempt to enforce Shariah Law, a group of Muslims in Jersey City, New Jersey recently demanded that public schools be closed on Sep. 24 to celebrate the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha. While many politically correct school boards across the U.S. would have submitted to this demand without thinking, this one decided to put up a fight. Jersey City Schools Superintendent Marcia Lyles and the rest of the board that shutting down the school, especially since they were given just six days notice, would be too disruptive and would force the majority of non-Muslim parents to find accommodations for their children on short notice.
The Muslims gave a blunt reason at a recent school board meeting as to why their demands should be met.
If the board had relented, the school year would have been extended another day. In addition, many 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. However, the Muslims were unfazed by this and continued to express their outrage.
“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 the Muslims.
“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.
We still applaud the board for not submitting to politically correct nonsense and for not giving in to this Muslim nonsense!
