Far left-wing socialist New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has successfully spearheaded an effort to shut down New York City schools on two Muslim holidays. One of those holidays is Eid al-Adha, which celebrates animal sacrifice. What the left and the media would have you believe is that this is just another necessary step toward greater diversity and inclusion. In reality, this is a huge step toward the abyss.
In a statement issued by de Blasio, he said:
“Hundreds of thousands of Muslim families will no longer have to choose between honoring the most sacred days on their calendar or attending school.”
What the Mayor and the media are leaving out are two other issues.
1.) The school district now has to track the Lunar calendar and by that, Islam, a spirit of Antichrist intended to changing set times and set laws as well as educating non-Muslims that Eid al-Adha celebrations start after the descent of the Hujjaj (Pilgrims) performing the Hajj, from Mount Arafat, a hill east of Mecca. The very nice sounding idea that “Muslims observe the holiday with morning prayers, followed by gatherings of friends and family” is only half the story.
2.) The day ends up with an animal slaughtered by every household in the backyard:
Isn’t this the kind of thing that American parents should be educating themselves about instead of allowing their children to acknowledge a holiday that celebrates animal sacrifice?
De Blasio made an interesting choice for who would be standing with him as he officially delivered the news:
Linda Sarsour, a Muslim community advocate and public school parent who joined de Blasio for the announcement at a school in Brooklyn, said, “This is what New York City is all about – recognition, inclusion and respect.”
As Shoebat.com has reported last year, Sarsour had a problem with a documentary entitled “The Honor Diaries” that called attention to misogyny in Islam. If Sarsour would not support such a film that seeks to draw attention to the abuse of women, why wouldn’t she support Muslim holidays that abuse animals?
Here is a segment on Fox News about Sarsour’s opposition to the documentary. In the clip, it’s revealed that Sarsour was identified as a “Champion of Change” by the Obama administration:
In 2011, Sarsour also joined forces with the far left-wing Occupy Wall Street movement, as Shoebat.com reported. Also last year, Sarsour took to twitter to thank a far left-wing Congressman, Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) for his generous contribution to a Muslim Brotherhood front group, as Shoebat.com reported:
