Why is the Broward County School Board even entertaining an idea from an organization a federal judge rules is Hamas, whom the FBI has banned, and whom the government named an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest Islamic terror financing conviction in U.S. history? Why? via WSVN-TV – Muslim council asks for school holidays in Broward.
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (WSVN) — A religious rift over a proposal to close school for Muslim holidays at a South Florida school district could make tempers flare at a Broward County School Board meeting scheduled for Thursday night.
Officials are set to discuss a proposal from the Council of American-Islamic Relations to add two days off from school to recognize holidays for Muslim students at a meeting at around 6:30 p.m.
Ghazala Salaam of the Council On American-Islamic Relations said, “We just want to be inclusive, use the same methodology you would use to create a secular day off, for Christian and Jewish holidays for the Muslim students.”
The council is asking for two days off. “The first one being at the end of Ramadan, after the 30 days of fasting, and the second one at the end of the pilgrimage, which is Hajj,” said Salaam.
Joyce Kaufman Radio Talk Show Host at WFTL said she would rather have schools ignore holidays for all religions. “I think it’s insane,” she said. “I think secular public schools shouldn’t be in the business of either endorsing or forcing children to accept other religions … When I send my kids to school I didn’t send them as Jewish or Christian or Buddhist or Muslim children. They’re Americans.”
While Florida radio station jocks try to downplay the religious aspect of the latest Hamas-front group demand, flash back to 2008 in Ft. Lauderdale where near riots broke out as Muslims took to the streets telling Jews to “go back to the ovens” and harassing non-Muslims.
If you are in Florida use the first two or three inks on the left nav bar under Key Reports to educate your local officials and school board members on this terror-linked organization.
