Connecticut School District Bows To Sharia And Votes To Honor Two Muslim Holidays

Gateway Pundit

A Connecticut School District has voted to honor Muslim holidays. Creeping Sharia at its best via Waterbury Superintendent Kathleen Ouellette.

WTNH reports the following (via RightScoop):

WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — Starting next fall, all schools in the Waterbury School District will be honoring two of the Muslim religion’s most holy days by not scheduling tests, field trips or major school events on those days.

It started with more than 300 signatures on a petition and has come full circle. Thursday night, the Waterbury Board of Education voted to honor two Muslim holy days. Fahd Syed says he is happy because his children won’t have to choose between education and religion.

As a side note, this is a ridiculous premise since it is doubtful that anyone really feels that if a school doesn’t honor a particular religious holiday that the students have to sacrifice one or the other—education or religion.

The real agenda here is creeping sharia into the culture. So when can we expect Kathleen Ouellette to honor Jewish holidays so Jews don’t have to make the choice between education and religion at the Connecticut schools. The article continues with more false victimhood memes from Fahd Syed as follows:

“Growing up in Waterbury myself and going to school here, I missed a trip because of the holiday,” said Syed. “I had to choose my faith and I didn’t go to the trip. That was in the third grade at Washington Elementary.”

Check out the prayer-rug burn on the forehead of Fahd Syed in the video report. It’s doubtful Islam has suffered any set-backs from a school field trip.

Syed has four children and he is happy that the new generation of Muslims coming up through the Waterbury School District won’t have to choose between exams and religious beliefs, which is the point of Thursday’s vote, says Board of Education President Charles Stango.

“We were approached about this, and we thought about it, and honored it,” said Stango.

It is not about a day off. They are not going to shut the schools down for two Muslim holidays. A memo is going to go out at the beginning of the year. Superintendent Dr. Cathleen Ouellette says the idea is to show respect for the Muslim culture.

“A sensitivity memo will go out to the district to teachers and staff, asking them to be sensitive to the Muslim holidays in regards to scheduling assessments and major events that happen through the district,” said Dr. Ouellette.

This is the first decision of its kind in the state of Connecticut.

Isn’t multiculturalism grand? Watch this excellent report by David Wood: This is an example of stage one.

Judge Marianne Bowler Who Mirandized Boston Bomber Has Ties To Muslim Countries

Gateway Pundit

Creeping Sharia?

Ties-to-Muslim-Countries

FrontPageMag has the following to report:

Judge Bowler has some interesting international connections. She is a member of the Member of the International Judicial Relations Committee of the Judicial Conference of the United States.

Apparently in that capacity, she visited and spoke on legal issues at a number of Muslim countries, becoming the first female judge to speak in Kuwait, appearing also in Egypt and in the United Arab Emirates.

Oddly enough, aside from a visit to the US embassy in Belgrade, those are the only international appearances that she lists and they all take place in Muslim countries.

While Islamic infiltration of our political system is well known, the infiltration of our legal system is less well known, but operates within similar parameters with foreign contacts being made. There is no way of knowing how much Bowler has been influenced by her connections with the legal and political systems of the Muslim world, but it is telling that her international judicial relations appear to begin and end with the Muslim world.

Vanished!… Islamic Jumah Disappears From Official DNC Schedule – But Maybe Not From the Event? – Updated

UPDATED: The only questions left now are: (1) Is the DNC and Team Obama lying to us again… and just took the official designation supporting Jumah off their site? (2) Are the Jumah events now moving forward in Charlotte on their own and without sanction, now that Team Obama decided it was a liability for President Obama’s reelection? (3) Or will the Jumah event move forward as planned at the DNC Convention (with unofficial sanction) but not be televised or discussed by the liberal bias media. See: Jumah prayer event prior to the 2012 DNC goes off without a hitch or disruption No one has been able to get a definite response from either the DNC, Team Obama or the White House about the status of this event since they removed it from the DNC Convention Website as an officially sanctioned event… But it was then noticed that it had not been removed from MuslimBureau.com and is now being reported as having started and taking place as planned.

Victory!!! Democrats Forced To CANCEL ‘Jumah At The DNC’ Due To Public Outrage

This is a huge victory!!

Now the End Begins:

The power of the blogosphere

NTEB was one of the first to report to you that the DNC 2012 was sponsoring an event to kick-off their convention called “Jumah At The DNC 2012″. This was to be a 2-hour Muslim prayer festival to Allah. We ran the following information on August 28:

“The Democratic National Committee is raising a number of eyebrows after choosing to proceed with hosting Islamic “Jumah” prayers for two hours on the Friday of its convention, though it denied a Catholic cardinal’s request to say a prayer at the same event. Up to 20,000 people are expected to attend the Friday prayers and Jibril Hough, a spokesman for the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), said the purpose of the event is to hold political parties accountable for the issues faced by Muslim-Americans.”
