Muslims Forced A Maryland School To Ban Christmas From Calendars

The War on Christmas continues as Muslims in the Montgomery County School District in Maryland successfully strip the Christian holiday from the school’s calendar. In addition to this measure, the schools will no longer recognize Easter or Yom Kippur to satisfy unhappy Muslim parents and students.

The controversy began when the Muslim community put pressure on the school board to include the Islamic holiday Eid al-Adha on their calendar. Their claim was that Eid al-Adha was a religious holiday that was just as important as Christmas is to Christians and Yom Kippur is to Jews.

Students who followed the religion complained that, just like Christmas, Eid al-Adha was about spending time with their family. However, when students missed a day from school, they would find themselves buried in homework and falling behind their classmates.

The board responded by saying the holidays recognized on the school’s calander were not about honoring or accepting a religion, nor were they about giving children time to spend with their families. Instead, the school was considering the high absentee of students and faculty members on the Jewish and Christian holidays.

And this is one of the main reasons we left Montgomery County 20 years ago and moved to the shore to raise our kids. Saw it coming, we were surrounded by Mosques. I just hope this nonsense stays on that side of the bridge!

Those unhappy Muslims can go to a muslim country instead of trying to change everything in the U.S. since they are so un-American anyway.

Those are American Holidays not just Christian or Jewish but American! The majority of the Christmas songs were written by Americans who happened to be Jewish but they were written to celebrate a traditional American holiday! That was an excuse, people being absent, to avoid any legal battle!Name one traditional Muslim country which makes such concessions for any religion besides their own? What they have done is un-American and has nothing to do with being inclusive but more to do with the their holy book, the Koran, and how it tells them how to take over another country to fit their Muslim way of life!

Islam is Tolerant
of Other Religions
The Myth:
Religious minorities have flourished under Islam. Muslims are commanded to protect Jews and Christians (the People of the Book) and do no harm to them. In Sura 109, the Quran says, "To you, your religion. To me, mine."

The Truth:
Religious minorities have not “flourished” under Islam. In fact, they always dwindle to mere shadows after a few centuries of persecution and discrimination. Some were converted from their native religion by brute force, others under the agonizing strain of dhimmitude.

What Muslims call “tolerance,” others correctly identify as institutionalized discrimination. The consignment of Jews and Christians to dhimmis under Islamic rule means that they are not allowed the same religious rights and freedoms as Muslims. They cannot share their faith, for example, or build houses of worship without permission.

Muslims the KINGS of racism!!

When one is used to being on top of things, equality can feel like oppression. If we continue to demonize Muslims we end up destroying our own humanity.

Good Ol'Monkey county - still leading the way with the most bass ackwards style of doing business. AND SPENDING the most MD dollars doing it! Example is the I-270 corridor over the last 35 years! Traffic is still a mess. Construction upon construction upon construction and guess what - MORE construction slated in the future.

Why? They built the houses before the roads! And hows that ICC doing for you with revenue? Not hitting projections with those lexus lanes - eh? Purple line cost (to include right of way acquisitions) - BILLIONS!!!!

And SHA says route 90 bridge is on the radar. HA!
Monkey County schools look real nice/updated too. Here on the shore?
