Today Americans revisit the horrific events that occurred exactly 15 years ago, the September 11, 2001 Islamic terrorist attacks in Shanksville, Pennsylvania at the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon during which more than 3,000 people were killed and 6,000 plus wounded.
Let us also not forget the September 11, 2012 Islamic terrorist attacks in BENGHAZI, Libya in which four Americans were slaughtered in a second wave of attacks on U. S. soil, i.e., U. S. Ambassador, Christopher Stevens, Ambassador, Information Officer Sean Smith, Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Tyron Woods.
As many mourn the loss of loved ones, pay tribute the fallen today and the wounded, New York City public schools will remain closed Monday but not in observance of the 911. Instead NYC public schools are closed Monday in observance of Eid al-Adha, Muslim holiday placed on the school calendar in 2015 by New York City’s Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña. (See calendar below. Note, also added to the calendar is the Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr to be observed June 26, 2017.)
Philadelphia public schools are also closed tomorrow.
Commie de Blasio and comrade Farina when placing Muslim holidays on the school calendar at the same time deleted all acknowledgement of Christmas, a Christian holiday including replacing any mention of Christmas recess period from December 26, 2016 thru January 2, 2017 with the word “Winter Recess (schools closed).”
In addition, Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017 has also been deleted from the school calendar and acknowledgment of school closings for Easter week replaced with the words, “Spring Recess (schools closed).”
Disrespectful? Yes, REPUGNANT and a slap in the face of Christians.
It is an outrage that Eid al-Adha which was observed on September 24th last year, will be observed this year on September 12, 2016 (tomorrow) on U. S. soil one day after the 15th anniversary of the September 11th Islamic terrorist attacks in which more than 3,000 Americans perished.
According to Al-Jazeera, Eid al-Adha was expected to begin today, September 11th but since “The actual dates of Eid are confirmed based on moon sighting. If a new moon was sighted on September 1, then the first day of Eid al-Adha would have been on September 11. But since the moon was not visible, the festival will be celebrated on Monday, September 12….”
De Blasio and Farina have deleted any mention of Christian holidays from school calendars. Is anyone outraged? Or will New Yorkers sit by like sheep being led to the slaughter?
America first and foremost. Wake up people. Demand it.
